INCLUDE_DATA

Sorry for the looooong delay in posts, but I am spread too thin! Trying to keep several blogs updated is just rediculous.

Most of my energy has been going into a new website: www.tipitgirls.com, which should launch shortly!

Designing a few new products at the same time: Toothbrush, goggles, logos, etc.

Fun, but if I have one piece of advice right now, FOCUS!

Enjoy inventing :)

Invention Product Designer

September 21, 2010

Today I wanted to talk a little about a company that I have used for the design of my own products,  RAAYA Design. If you need a prototype, have an idea that needs grooming, or just want to make something look more appealing to your target market, then you must speak to RAAYA Design.

Taking a product from idea to reality takes incredible talent, and Rupa, my designer, has proven to me that she has what it takes.

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Raaya-Design/109161279107668

Visit her facebook page or contact her with your ideas, I promise you won’t be disappointed. We all need professional help when it comes to prototypes, design and marketing.

And I am recommending Rupa because she is the best. I have no financial interest in her business!

December 28, 2009

Where do You draw inspiration from?

September 28, 2009

Entrepreneurs need inspiration to move ahead, or that is at least how I feel.  This “fuel” is what moves us out of ruts and gets our products/ideas one step further ahead.  My most recent inspiration is the show SHARK TANK.  It simple allows entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas/products/companies to hungry venture capitalists in hope of [...]
