And Now, An Important Word from Leslie Haywood

I recently had the pleasure of catching up with Leslie Haywood. It is always so fun to speak with her! In light of all of the excitement over Homemade Millionaire, she reminded me of an article she posted on her blog in September of last year regarding "one of the biggest lies in business..."

I will admit that it is hard not to believe that getting your product on a show like Shark Tank, Pitchmen, American Inventor or Homemade Millionaire is the "Golden Ticket" to all of my entrepreneurial dreams coming true. The realistic me knows that this is not always the case and Leslie's article speaks volumes to this.

Hoping that many of my fellow inventor friends will read and find it useful too!


  1. SOOOOO true! Leslies article "One of the Biggest Lies in Business" So easy to get burned by the bright lights of PR. It's great that there are cool blogs, such as this, that we can reveal some pitfalls to product development. Thanks for the reality check post.

  2. Don't you just love how she "tells it"? Leslie is one cool cucumber and she really puts it in perspective.

    Thank you for your kind words!

    It is so exciting to me that someone is reading my little blog. :)
