John Hobbs reveals “The Secrets of Successful Inventors”

July 10th, 2009 · 24 Comments

Book Cover for The Secrets of Successful InventorsKaren Rands, the compassionate capitalist, talks with John Hobbs, inventor and founder of Athelete’s Oasis, about his new book, “The Secrets of Successful Inventors”.  Author/inventor John R Hobbs reveals the “missing secrets” all inventors need to know so they become successful! After struggling for years, he could not figure out why only a few people understood and could truly see the benefits of his mass-market invention and brand. He finely figured it out and instantly started receiving the resources a product/brand needs to penetrate the market in an effective manner.  Listen and learn from as this seasoned inventor describes the simple steps to increase the likelihood that your idea can become an invention that penetrates the market in a big way.  You can pre-order John’s book at www.TheSecretsofSuccessfulInventors.com

 

 

The number of US Patents applied for each year is staggering, over 440,000. The sad truth is only 54% (236700) of patent applications are approved *1 and 99.8% (236226.2) of approved patents fail.*2  This means 473.4 of all patents filed make money for the inventor. To put is another way $2.2 billion spent each year (if all the cost associated with filing a patent were only $5K) is wasted money on patents for a project that do not make enough money to make it worth starting the process!! If you add the wasted money on prototype, photo shoots, websites, branding, video production, etc. you start realizing over $15B each year is spent trying to move a project forward the end up failing.

John Hobbs: “During my journey from concept to market with the Athletes’ Oasis® I met 1000’s of struggling inventor. Looking back, I realized that they also only had part of the formula to become successful but where missing pieces that are necessary to attract the resources they needed. Moreover, the many successful inventors the author met had the essential element conveyed in the book but could not convey it coherently to other inventors. The desire to assist other inventors so they do not have to struggle as long and hard nor waste the tens of thousands of dollars like I did compelled me to write “The Secrets of Successful Inventors”. “

    Hello Thanks for sharing such pearls of wisdom… how did you get such broad experience?

    My days at IBM provided a great foundation. And a decade of working directly with entrepreneurs and learning from their success and failures provided the rest of the knowledge gained.

    Hello everybody
    Great info. Wish I had heard this and read this book before wasting $5000 on a prototype that was all wrong. Talk about getting the cart before the horse and learning an expensive lesson.

    Best Regards

    Yes Adam, all to often entrepreneurs will jump into launching a business because of their passion for their idea without really planning out what is needed and how they will get it done.

    I have been reading your articles during my lunch break, and I have to admit the whole article has been very valuable and very well written. I thought I would let you know that for some reason this blog does not view well in Internet Explorer 8. I wish Microsoft would stop changing their software.
