Ever since I was a little kid I was fascinated by the entire inventive process. I remember – I think it was 3rd grade – there was this thing called the Invention Convention.
Every student in my grade had to invent something. Including me. I’m not sure what my invention was called (don’t worry – I’m sure the name wasn’t all that great, anyways). But I remember what it did. It collected garbage. Excited, yet!?
Using a short shovel attached to a pipe and a plastic bag tied to the end of it, my gizmo was supposed to disrupt the trash collection industry. But, guess what? It didn’t. But I think I still got second place, though.
Fast forward 20+ years and here I am. Again. Wanting to take another stab at it. Re-launching my inventor career. Trying to make some big bucks! Wish me luck.
But, WHY am I writing this blog?
