New Book by Long Island Inventor Offers Insight on Developing Your Ideas

Envision It. Create It. Watch It Transpire.

MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - All people at one time or another have a great idea, but don't have the know-how to get their vision materialized. It takes more than personal discipline to follow through with a great idea from inception to completion. In his new book, "You & Your Big Ideas: A Resource Guide For Inventors, Innovators & Entrepreneurs" (WingSpan Press, 2008), Brian Fried, President of the Inventors and Entrepreneurs Club of Suffolk County, offers a step by step tutorial for people to supplement their income in the current economic climate, by bringing their ideas to fruition.

"I know how it feels to have an incredible big idea and feel totally lost, frustrated and confused because you have no idea what to do, where to go or who to ask to help make it real," said Fried. "Doing the research and learning from my mistakes ate up a lot of valuable time because I didn't have access to the material I've pulled together here."

Brian Fried turned a hobby into a thriving business. Presently, he holds three issued utility patent and seven other patent pending inventions and has twelve more to develop. His inventions range from kids toys and infant products, to houseware gadgets, to everyday items that solve problems.

Mary D. Ellroy, Award Winning Toy Inventor & Licensing Agent, had this to say about the 135-page hands-on workbook and guide: "Brian's approach to inventorship is both entertaining and useful. It is clearly written, easy to read and full of great facts!"

A combination of an inventive mind, positive attitude, a willingness to work hard and a determination to reach set goals are detailed in the book as essential to achieving success. In addition, Fried finds that teamwork provides a network of colleagues and collateral services.

"From the initial stage to the final stage of commercialization, the inventor will find a friend and partner in 'You & Your Big Ideas,'" Walter Reid, Small Business Development Center, Farmingdale State College, A Program of the US Small Business Administration.

On his new website, Fried has created a Linked Community consisting of his own network of supporters and friends who are each available to provide guidance to novice inventors and start-up entrepreneurs and set them on the road to success.
