Are you sitting on an idea for a great product - one that has the potential to make people's lives better while making you a living - but don't know how to actually get it made?
Getting started can feel both exciting and totally overwhelming, especially when you are a newcomer to the world of design and manufacturing. But it is possible to make and sell a successful product, even if all you have is an idea on the back of a napkin!
I know, because I’ve done it. I went from “sewing” my first prototype together with an office stapler, to selling $100K purchase orders to some of the world’s biggest brands. (Not without a lot of hard lessons, but more about that later.) I’ve helped thousands of entrepreneurs in workshops and mentoring sessions work on their product ideas, too.
What separates the people who move forward from the ones who struggle, is how they handle the knowledge gap. The process of making a physical product is a completely new world, filled with unfamiliar processes, terminology, and norms. Navigating the industry with ease means having access to step-by-step guidance as you go from idea to product. It means having the right information to take the right actions in the right order.
My goal is to provide you with the guidance you need to turn that scribbled-on napkin into a product that sells. I’ll teach you how to create a “formal” design (and who can help you do it), the art of finding trustworthy suppliers, how to manage quality control, the in’s and out’s of product testing, importing/exporting, logistics and more!
Equally as important, we will focus on avoiding common mistakes that cost entrepreneurs time, money and stress, and stall or stop their products from ever being made. Through my own experiences and those of my clients, I have plenty of cautionary tales to educate you with!
Knowledge is what turns novices into "Pro Makers:, people who know how to successfully design, source, manufacture and sell every product idea they create. Schedule a free consultation to get started with your product journey today!
