"If someone has a patented idea, they're usually proud to promote is as such. Research the existing products and then you can tweak the differences in yours. "

"Karen There are too many variables to make any blanket statements about this. It's likely a "design patent" not a utility patent. Thus a small change would probably be okay - but if you're unsure I'd find another idea."

Welcome Karen,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

One thing I noticed on your profile is Dan Miller's and Dave Ramsey's podcasts. They give great advice and has helped many people, including me, become very successful.

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
