An idea is just that if it isn’t sellable. Learn steps you can take to better assure your money doesn’t go down the drain with high costs before you actually know if your product will sell. Learning the basics that smart inventors use during the exploratory stages of taking an idea to a product can save you time and money while assuring your product has a better chance to succeed once it is launched.
