We all have great ideas, but most people never follow through and pursue their dream of turning an idea into a product. Everyday Edisons was created to show the reality of product development. We wanted to accomplish 3 things: Inspire people to follow through with their ideas, educate our viewers on the process, and along the way… make dreams come true.
After two seasons of casting calls, we realized that we could do even more. In the Season 3 casting calls, we invited some of America’s largest retailers to attend and help inventors bring their developed products to market. These retailers which include: The Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, Staples, QVC, The Sharper Image, Dicks, and PetsMart have already identified over a hundred products that they have an interest in. With this new opportunity, we look forward to helping even more inventors realize their dream.
In addition, we created Edison Nation, the online community for inventors. It is exciting to see the membership and comradery amongst inventors grow. Inventors helping inventors is a very powerful movement and I want to pledge my assistance as well.
So how can I help the inventor community? How can I help you? I welcome your suggestions for topics that can be addressed in future forums. Please let me know your areas of interest and I will do my best to provide updated information, resources, and support to assist your efforts.
I have had the good fortune of meeting some of the country’s most admired inventors and entrepreneurs. I have learned of their successes and of their failures. What is consistent, however, is in their passion and commitment.
I look forward to meeting the next generation of innovative minds and hope that the efforts of Everyday Edisons, Edison Nation, and Inventors Digest can play a role in stimulating creativity.
