Every one has ideas, inventions, and dreams but only a few people ever make any money from their thoughts. This Is how Ive been doing it (or trying to). This is how ive gotten an invention the Hard Drive Zapper www.HardDriveZapper.com. From a simple thought to an actual product as a high school kid. Im not trying to show off or anything, im simply trying to show that it is possible for a kid to actually make money and start a small company based off of their ideas. Also this isnt about my invention, i dont care if you dont like it, its a consumer product, designed to be cheap, quick to manufacture and secure enough for most average consumers. So please, constructive comments only I dont want to be flamed.

Step 1: First learn how to build things with your hands

Learn how to build things, everything using simple tools. Unless your rich or extraordinarily lucky, you will have difficulty launching any product that you can not build with your own two hands (and a dremel tool). Investors, companies, and business partners have all seen thousands of inventors with ideas but absolutely no clue how to build them. By showing them a working prototype or even a detailed mock up you will have one step above most other "inventors" . If you can develop a clear model in your head and and then build it with your hands, then a manufacturer will be able to do the same.

<p>Those are good ways to earn money, I know another one, It's kinda slow but it gives some money in the long run, it's about PTC websites, I've found 2 trusty websites, It took me like half a year to start earning some money, you have to do TASKS or being very patient because you're not going to get paid with LOTS of money, I leave you 2 websites that are highly trusted and I use, give them a try! ;) http://www.neobux.com/?rh=49616D6772756E74 and http://csl.ink/5dF</p>

I make extra money working online. I&#8217;ve cleared over 14k in the last year, it&#8217;s not a way to get rich, but you can avoid retail/fast food jobs by doing it.

Well Done! Looks like we have a lot in common. I too was working on my first of a couple dozen patents while still in High school and made my first big hit by 19. The inventive process is a long arduous road to riches laden with potholes. For those with tough skin and steely determination success is near certain. Passion is the key. All the best and continued success, Jack Durban www.vorelco.com
What sort of jobs are you hiring for? I do a lot of invention

thank you
the real problem is they post it on here before they give it to a major company and the idea gets stolen by some low life and gets rich off it
I never thought of taking it to major manufacturer
you already made this exact instructable
Nice write up. However, depending on the invention your steps are too simple to be implemented.
thats true, though thats why i suggested staying with simple inventions at least in the begining. also for brevitys sake i left out alot of tiny steps
