Inventing New Products/Inventions/INVENTION EVALUATION FEE


Do you think I should pay $75.00(U.S.) to have a professional invention evaluation from They are listed as trustworthy on the inventor fraud website.

It's up to you. It would seem that you get a fair amount of benefit for just a little money. But that might be their hook. They charge a small fee to attract possible clients and give you lots of great information that is spun positively. Then they will try and sell you on their invention services; that I promise you, will cost much more. So it's up to you. If you are sure that you can withstand the littiny of compliments and empty promises they might make to try to sway you to become a client, then go for it.

Good luck and let me know what happens!

Commercialization of an idea is truly an art form and I'm really good at letting people borrow my paintbrush. Although, it's important to note that you are your own artist, I can't paint what you see in your mind, only you can do that. But I can help. I can answer questions about honing your idea and helping it to become more real in your mind, your research, and within your speaking. I can answer questions about market research, validation, and where to go to make your first contact. My expertise is in answering the large questions that you have into more manageable pieces. I can also assist you in finding the source of the data that you can use to prove and pitch your idea if that's the path that you're on.


In my opinion, the current way to invent is inherently flawed. Regular people like us normally get “eaten up” by the proverbial sharks in the water. (corporations, invention submission companies, lawyers, etc)

We can not stand for this any longer; you feel this too, yes?


I have helped people think and re-think their ideas for years. Nobel Prize Winner Albert von Szent-Gyorgyi once said that "Discovery consists of seeing what everybody else has seen, and thinking what no one has thought." I agree with this truth with all of my heart. Now let's talk about your question, your passion, and how I can help your idea gain momentum if it is ready. If your idea is not ready for the market yet, I'll help you determine how you can get ready.
