I asked some of the most successful inventors, designers and product developers what the key is to discovering a GREAT idea. They had many and various answers. However, the most common answer was: Have lots of bad ideas. It seems odd that people at this level would mention bad ideas but once broken down, it[…]
The sign was intriguing.

I been in business for a while. But never heard reference of “FIGURE” businesses before this whole Internet Marketing game got popular.
Go from 4 to 5 figures in 6 Easy Steps!
Scale Your 1 Figure Business To 10 Figures!!
Turn That 6 Figure Frown Upside Down!!!
I made that last one up. It’s not really a thing – (yet.)
As much as I’ve seen the ads telling me how important a 7, 8, 9 or even 10 Figure business is to have these days, I’m starting to doubt my methods.

Ahhhhh, the joys of product development – the good, bad and ugly. Reaching the end of any phase of a project is a major highlight. And it’s a highlight starting the next phase. But in the middle of the phases it gets to be somewhat work. Grinding out the processes and completing what are some[…]
Who sees the necessity and brings forth a light of hope? Who dares break the rules of nature to improve upon our situation? The evolution of man is gauged not as much by physical stature as it is by our inventions. The club, the knife, the bed, the fire pit are the markers of our[…]

How most good things start with a bar, a friend and a napkin. The scene was familiar – the room was a little too dark, there were a few too many empty glasses on the table and a fairly intense conversation was going down. JD is a very smart guy. He’s a veterinarian, which makes[…]
“Hey I was wondering if you had time for a beer? I’ve got this new idea and I wanted to run it by you.” First of all, you had me at beer. Second, I’m not sure I’ll be of any help. But yeah, OK for the beer. Everyone needs validation. We want to know if[…]
