Wrong advice to tell people to get it out there, sell it without protecting. Always do a search, the ppa.

You make it all sound so easy. In mid process now and it's a bitch feeling others want to steal your work. Video on my site shows where I'm at.

Inventing something is not enough, it can be the most amazing and helpful thing ever invented but if you can't sell it - your invention becomes junk. Statistics show 95% of all patient inventions were not successful, didn't bring any money and in some cases left people with debt. I'm an inventor myself going through patent process, i know my product will sell, i know it will require hard work first few years marketing and selling it to get those numbers up, only then you can call up WallMart, QVS to present your product.

+ivinio G If it were easy then everyone would work for them self and be inventors. The 5% are the ones that didn't give up.

+ivinio G  Don't  turn everyone down, if your product is going to take a few years to get it to market. Then you have something wrong or you are going about it the wrong way.

if u don't have the money then try looking into something alil close to home, taking your presentation to the bank you bank with and ask them to invest with some type of funding or small loans to help u get started, just to get u off the ground, of course assuming you have a job in that which you can budget to cover those costs.....maybe it's possible that it could work

And people whining about patent costs, you should be scientist, they help mankind and it doesn´t require any funding if it´s your profession.

I had to sign in just to make this comment. Like the ideas, very helpful information. Would be great to know what Mr. Topolski invented.

I just created Telekinesis, you have to put a headband on connected to temples and other nerve areas, takes practice, but you'll be able to lift objects, some heavy and light depending how good you are. Obviously no one can steal this idea, because you don't know how i did it! You saw it here first...

Great idea if you've got a couple of grand.. What about the guy/gal who have great ideas but no $

Crowdfunding your idea on sites like Kickstarter is a good way to invent a product.  The process you go through preparing for your crowdfunding campaign will help your initial idea into a real invention.

+cocoa1799 Hey you can do a patent yourself.
Nacho Espinoza (5 years ago)
This guy is full of it just because he couldn't write his own patent does not mean you cannot. I have one patent pending and Im writing up another patent now. I have been studying how patents work and how to write a provisional for more than a year now but I know how to do it now and have not payed nearly as much as everyone else is hiring a patent attorney. If your product is successful with your provisional patent then you will have the money to pay for a Non-provisional (you can write one)

How can I get into contact with you?

Create a prototype for one of your investors and have the market research done, as well as know all the answers to all of the questions he or she will ask you ahead of time. Get your pitch down and learn learn learn read books about intellectual property, patents, market research watch lots of indigogo and kickstarter videos. Good luck you got this I hope Im the motivation you needed to get a company started with one (yes one) of your inventions.

My family laughed when I told them I was going to get extra cash with Intellitus Cash System, but then they saw the results. Google Intellitus Cash System to see their reaction. (You should see their priceless faces!)

Hmm, this is an pretty good method to make money but its not as effective as Money Token Express (google it). I've gone through this before and it didn't work too well, Money Token Express is making my partner well over $5k a month. So look on Google for the words Money Token Express to discover how you and your partner can too.
