Tips to get Noticed and Make a Better Submission
This sections purpose is to show you a better way to get your idea noticed. Haven’t you walked through a store looked at a product and say “I thought of that years ago.” Or “That is so simple. Why didn't I think of that?” The answer is persistence. There are a large number of people with great ideas, but they just don’t have the fortitude to push their idea to the goal line.
No one likes rejection and it seems even more demeaning from people you don’t even know. This rejection makes a large number of people give up on their first try. Granted you may have a bad idea. That is why I strongly stress finding a friend that will be brutally honest in their opinion of your idea. YOU DO NOT NEED A “YES” MAN or WOMAN! YOU NEED HONEST OPINIONS! Haven’t you ever had days when nothing seems to make you laugh, your favorite food just doesn’t satisfy you the way it used to. Remember the saying about never buy a car that was built on a Friday or Monday.
