Hi my fellow inventors, 

Got uninspired a couple of years ago and took a break, then was repeatedly pummeled by life. Just starting to pick myself up and brush myself off, and thought I’d take a peek to see what’s going on at EN.  What have I missed??

Hope you’ve all been doing well!

Margaret

Hi Margaret, thanks for checking in.  Great to hear from you!!!  A lot has changed over the last year or two.  Edison Nation is now under corporate ownership complete with a new CEO.  EN is a publically traded stock now.  See below:

https://app.edisonnation.com/forums/announcements-1/topics/weve-got-big-news-edison-nation-is-now-a-part-of-the-xspand-products-lab-family

There have been a few licensing deals announced since you've been gone, but I'm not one of them yet.  Still trying though!

Here's a couple of them:

https://app.edisonnation.com/forums/announcements-1/topics/success-story-licensing-success-for-ricardo-aviles-medi-spout-with-apothecary-products

The forums aren't as vibrant as they once were due to lots of new names and faces and people coming and going, but I try to keep my contribution level up.  Community Manager Michelle Sartori and her replacement Kristina (not sure you'd know her) have both moved on.  They are missed, but I'm all for people taking advantage of great opportunities, and their void just creates an new opportunity for someone else.

Sorry life has pummeled you, but you are back amongst your EN family.  Didn't you go back to school for nursing or something?  How'd that turn out four you?  You can send me a personal message if you don't want to discuss it here.

You've been away for a couple of years and you still have more Insider Points than I do :/

....Anyway, good to have you back around these parts!!

Hi Derrick!  I sent a personal message.  Sorry you haven’t had any luck yet, but persistence is in your DNA so I know you’ll keep trying. Thanks for filling me in!

Hi Margaret, glad to see your back! I try to pop in every now then and I was wondering about you. I hope all is well. You always inspired me, and everyone else to stay positive and keep inventing. 

Derrick, thanks for the update.

Margaret and Nicole - glad to see you both back and reinvigorated. Seems to be a trend lately and I'm so glad because every returning member and every new member makes this a more vibrant community.

I too have been a bit "pummeled by life" recently but I'm starting to get back in the saddle and hope to be able to focus a little more on inventing now.
