December is upon us and 2016 is winding down. It’s been about 6 months since I started this venture full time and I feel like it’s finally coming to a head. I have two products that I’m writing provisional patents for right now and two other projects that I’m working with others on that are getting close to a final design. Plus there are a few other ideas that I’ve written down and will vet out in 2017.
Ideally, I would have finished one product by now and found a manufacturer to team up with, but I started out with a very complex product. I should have started with smaller projects and worked my way up to the Dispenser. I didn’t know that it would evolve from a simple mechanical dispenser to a full on automatic heated wet or dry dispenser. In hindsight, I should have saw it coming. I’m still trying to figure out my ideal design process. But I like the position I’m in right now and am going to take advantage of the multiple avenues I have in front of me.
The Going Ons
As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m in sprint mode. I am working to get the provisional patents done in the next week or so. I purchased some patent writing software this week to help expedite the formatting and content of the patent. I’ll let you know how it worked out in the coming weeks and if it’s worth the cost.
