The Big Idea!

November 18, 2010

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a idea and have seen it on the store shelve 2 to 3 years later. This has happened for the last 50 years of my life. Or have done a search online only to find my Big Idea is already out there. I’ve been told and have read that if this happens to you, your on the right track with the way you think of ideas and what people are wanting to buy. The latest example is the Sole Skate now marketed by Razor. I had this idea 10 years ago. The math is when you think of an idea there are about 100 other people thinking of that same idea.

One of these days it will happen and when it does it’s going to be bitter sweet. My Mom was my biggest fan and is not here today to share everything that’s been happening in my life these last 5 years. I miss sharing my ideas with her and her excitement every time I came up with one. She used to say your a genius and that always made me smile and then laugh because I knew better :). I’ll probably break down in tears when this day finally comes not being able to share it with her.
