by Margaret Halmy Chances are it has happened to you. You get an idea one day for improving, inventing, or marketing a product or service. The more you think about it, the more you become convinced its not just a good idea its a great idea, an idea that could make you a lot of money. All you have to do is figure out how to sell it to someone somewhere. Youve heard its pretty hard to sell ideas, but you tell yourself others have done it. Remember the pet rock that was such a hit? Why not you? I confess, I keep getting new ideas all the time. Some are just so-so, and some, Im convinced, have real potential. Maybe you can figure out a way to profit from the sale of any of them. After all, wouldnt you like to make a bundle?
