Well, I have to say this has been exciting year for me. I have 2 ideas licensed now.One thru Inventor Angels and one thru Roger Brown. Both (I was told) should be out before the end of the year. The one idea thru Inventor Angels should be out this fall and you'll be able to find it in Costco and Walgreens. Their working on Walmart right now. Both companies are showing the two ideas at the Super Zoo Show in Vegas. I had great response last show for one. Fingers crossed I hope I get the same good reviews on the second. Thanks again Roger Brown and thank you Inventor Angels. Can't wait to reveal what they are. To be continued.

P.S. Don't forget to check out Rogers book "Common Sense Inventing" It answered a lot of questions for me.

John, that is some GREAT NEWS!!!! Inventors have to be able to reach out to Licence companies themselves! It takes a lot of work and persistence. I am so happy for you! Congratulations!

I hope Roger is doing well in his endeavors and I'll second your endorsement of his book "Common Sense Inventing" it is a must read for anyone trying to get a product to market.

Big congrats, John V.!!  I will be in Las Vegas next week with my sister, who has a pet grooming salon & will be going to Super Zoo.  Wish I could get a peek inside the convention center to see your pet innovation, but I'll have my sis be on the look-out for it.  Hoping your ideas are a big success!

John, is there any new/exciting news you can share with about your success?

April 23rd 2013, I came up with this idea. I built about a dozen different prototypes, trying to get it just right. I've pitched it to a bunch of companies with no luck. I came really close to giving up. Then I finally found someone that loved it as much as I do. It’s been a long road but I can finally say that my baby is in production and should be in stores this fall. (Fingers crossed) Thank you Edison Nation for getting me started on this amazing journey. Thank you Inventor Angels for hooking me up and thank you Wigzi and Walkwhiz for building a great product.

GREAT IDEA... Best of luck John. I have a pet product that's been on the market for over a year now (though it's much less complex than yours), so I know how difficult and can be and how perseverance can pay off.

Wishing You Much success!! Very exciting!

Curious... Did you try that as an ASOTV item (seems perfect)?

Congratulations John!!! What a fantastic idea. 

A leash with a built in flashlight, allowing the user to free up there other hand.  Excellent.  Good luck! I hope you kill the market with your products.

Just thought I’d give an update. The company we licensed my product to recently launched it at one of the big pet shows - the responses were awesome. It’s now in full production and the company is anticipating sales numbers for 2019 that made my head spin. I can’t say enough how awesome Glen and his team have been every step of the way. Any issues that came up were quickly handled and the results speak for themselves. I recently partnered with a friend of mine on a new idea. Two weeks ago I showed it to Glen. In less than a week he helped prepare the provisional filing, refined the sell sheet and video, and literally 7 days after first showing it to him, he had a company expressing real interest. One week! The company is now evaluating manufacturing costs and is already discussing potential licensing terms. My partner was blown away. Experienced, efficient and transparent (plus a super nice guy). What more can I say.

I'm buying one of these! Excellent.

Here is something that made it to G7 on Edison; we are launching independent on Amazon in Q1 of 2019. I'd appreciate a like as we just launched a pre-promote on social.
