Join the innovation revolution—and turn your BIG ideas into BIG money!

Before the Internet made instant communication and collaboration possible, inventing a new product or starting a new business was risky. Innovators and entrepreneurs were often faced with the daunting task of doing it all on their own—discovering a market opportunity, thinking of the solution, getting funding, lining up manufacturers and distributors, marketing, and eventually selling the goods. Success hinged on having enough time and money to launch and grow the venture quickly—something many first-time entrepreneurs are unprepared for.

But today is the era of the amateur. Thanks to the Internet and the emerging phenomenon of open-source innovation, making money from your creative ideas and expertise is easier than ever. No longer do big ideas only come out of corporate R&D labs or from people willing to quit their jobs and go into debt to fulfill their entrepreneurial dreams. Today, big ideas come from everyday experts just like you—schoolteachers, construction workers, college students, computer-savvy teenagers, almost anyone.

Yet people with big ideas can't do it alone. The Million-Dollar Idea in Everyone is your guide to making a difference and a dollar. This information-packed resource includes practical, real-world advice to help you explore your ideas, test-drive them, put them into action, and turn them into long-term income—without risking everything. Whether you dream of becoming a millionaire inventor or just want to earn a little extra on the side, this revolutionary guide will inspire you, inform you, and help you turn your BIG ideas into BIG money.
