Making Money From Your Crazy Ideas

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Anyone think they'd be good at such a thing?

I'm reading a book by a chap that's done just that, had over 100 of his crazy ideas made into real products and is a multi millionaire now.

One example he gave was that he came up with the idea of those ears you put on dogs at Xmas to make them look like raindeers, he get 21 cents for each one sold and they've sold over 2 million so that $420,000+

I've also in the reverse met a chap twice now that's got a product that can make virtually anything fireproof and for the last 10 years has gotten no where in getting the thing to market whilst in the mean time god knows how many lives could have been saved.
