If you have an idea for a product, you probably have a lot of questions too.
How do you design something if you’re not a “designer”? Should you produce domestically? Overseas? Where do you even start to look for suppliers? And what about the questions you don’t know to ask? Things related to product testing, labeling requirements, and importing guidelines. There’s a ton of information you may not even realize you need!
After working one-on-one with hundreds of product entrepreneurs and leading workshops for thousands more, I hear the same concerns again and again.
The most common include:
“I don’t know which materials would be best for my product, or where to find them.”
” How do I know if I can trust a new supplier?”
“I can’t tell if I’m overpaying my factory, and I don’t know anything about negotiating”.
“Do I need to do testing on my product in order to sell it?”
“How do I protect my investment and ideas when producing overseas?
“Is it possible to make a product in the USA and still make a profit?”
“What does ‘Quality Control’ actually mean anyway?”
One-on-one support closes this knowledge gap and helps you navigate each step of the making process carefully, with minimal risk.
While each person’s to-do’s will look different, the tasks, precautions, and best practices you will employ in order to successfully bring your product to life are universal. This step-by-step formula for success is what I learned when I was knee deep in my own business and forced to evaluate our biggest blunders, as well as our course corrections and wins. This formula was further refined by countless hours of research and interviewing top industry experts for their best actionable advice.
From making apparel to medical products to furniture to wearables, having access to expertise means you can move forward confidently at every turn.
Whether your goal is to be number one on Amazon, contribute to a cause you care about, or just earn a little extra income, the right combination of passion, hard work, and support can get you there. Losing time, money, and your peace of mind is not a requirement of this journey; it’s simply an effect of making the trip without a guide.
To Your Success!
