Invent It, Sell It, Bank It! is a hands-on, nuts-and-bolts guide to getting a new product or company off the ground and making it profitable. Sharing her own secret formula and personal stories along the way, Lori provides vital information and advice on topics that can often intimidate, frustrate, and stump aspiring entrepreneurs.

Lori covers such topic as . . .

• Market research: Is your idea a hero or a zero? Don’t be so fixated on the end result that you forget to make something that people actually want to buy. 
• Product design: I have an idea, now what’s next? From concept to prototype to final product: How do I make it and where do I start?
• Funding: Although loans, investments, and crowd-sourcing are great ways to access cash, first tap into your own resources as wisely as possible.
• Manufacturing: Seeing your final product roll off the assembly line is a magical moment, but there are things to watch out for so you get there in a cost-effective way.
• Protecting your idea: To patent or not to patent, and other things you can do to safeguard your idea.
• The secrets to selling successfully: You got the product made, now learn how to get people to buy it!

    This book is great for someone just stepping into inventing or selling products. As a product design/engineer, I have brought many products to market and still found a wealth of knowledge from this book. . The price of the book is nothing compared to priceless information,help, and experience it brings to the reader. Offering step by step instructions, hints, stories, motivation and examples. It would be hard to "not" be successful to anyone that actually put this information to use. The only thing that would make it even better would be a list of contact companies, however with the information contained, anyone can source those. The work won't do itself, but it makes the journey easier..
  • Easy read, very encouraging
