I just wanted to give a word of encouragement to those who teeter on the edge of giving up on inventing or any other dream they may have. Don't give up! Keep going, your effort will pay off one day. I know many of you probably have days when you love inventing and also days when it brings you much disappointment (those red X days). But don't give up! Keep at it.
I know from personal experience that I almost gave up and on that day I saw a sign that said "don't give up!" and I got the message that I had to keep going. So I did and it has been a roller coaster ride ever since. So not only will I always be grateful for Edison Nation and Norpro for not giving up on me. I am grateful I didn't give up on me. So don't give up!
"Life is full of surprises and and serendipity. Being open to unexpected turns in the road is an important part of success. If you try to plan every step, you may miss those wonderful twists and turns. Just find your next adventure-do it well, enjoy it-and then, not now, think about what comes next." - Condoleeza Rice
