Wow, it has been a busy week!
Once I found out that casting is next month, I have been working extra hard on Product X and showing it to some of my friends to get their input ASAP!
One friend particular, Stephanie, made a suggestion about the Product X design that took me back to the drawing board. Not only is she a genius (the new design is amazing) , she has the best laugh you'll ever hear!
Because of the time crunch, I am having my first focus group dinner this Friday and then a focus group BBQ on Sunday! Did I mention that I have my son's birthday party Saturday?!
I designed a clothing line in 2005 called Wear Your Manners and I just love the concept and the design is simple and sweet but I wish I knew then what I know now...ask for all the advice you can! Get as much impute as possible!
Wear Your Manners is MY taste but come to find out, not everyone likes "simple and sweet". You can take a look at www.wearyourmanners.com. By the way, Wear Your Manners is not Product X. :)
I've learned to LISTEN to other people with an open mind and thank goodness I did!
Sometimes it's hard to think YOUR invention could be any other way than the way YOU originally thought it to be but if I had keep that train of thought, Stephanie's suggestions would have gone in one ear and out the other and I wouldn't have the design I do now!
