Inventing isn’t just for entrepreneurs, Silicon Valley or a younger age demographic. Often times people come up with truly amazing ideas based on a personal need but, stop there because they don’t know how to transition the idea into an actual product. From our perspective, some of the best products on the market come from instances in which someone is solving a personal need and found a gap in the current marketplace. The truth is, if you have a need there are others facing the same issue looking for a solution. Your product idea can be that solution.
There are a lot of ideas, and misconceptions, about what it takes to be an inventor or an entrepreneur. Being an inventor and entrepreneur can be mutually exclusive. You don’t have to quit your job to follow a passion, you don’t have to want to start a full-blown company (think licensing opportunity) and you don’t have to have a large capital investment to get going. When it comes down to it, your passion mixed with a great idea is all you need to get started.
