The First Ten Comandments of (Individual) Inventors

From the 20-volume "Best of Inventors' Digest:"
  1. Stay away from invention marketing companies that advertise on radio and late night TV.
  2. Keep good records about your idea . . . some day they may be the back up you need to prove YOUR idea is YOURS!
  3. Do your own patent search.
  4. Build a model.
  5. Have your invention evaluated by a non-biased professional (even if your Mom’s in
    the business, go to someone else!)
  6. Read all you can about new product development.
  7. Network with other inventors. Join a local inventors’ organization.
  8. If your patent search looked promising (see #3), make an appointment with a
    patent attorney.
  9. Do what you do well and hire pros to do the rest.
  10. Don’t fall in love with your invention but if you’re really sure you’ve got a winner
    (see #5), hang in there!

I think those commandments are very interesting. I like it when religion becomes an ifluence especially on the business side. Good work!
