Advice for Inventors
Nearly everyone has at least a dozen earth-shattering inventions up their sleeve. At least that's what they believe. But most who want to run with their ideas and make them profitable end up wasting a lot of time, especially as novices, on ideas that are already on the market or that few others want. It's important to work smart and fast as product developers so your focus is on the new, the needed, and the profitable.
