Your coaching and Kit were perfect to help me get my new VestPac product into the market. It's been fun. Thanks again.
Thank you for helping me get my product in the market. Your coaching was just what I needed. I originally was thinking of licensing, but you showed me that for my product it was best to manufacture and market myself. You were so right. My hunting knife product is doing great.

You provided me with the right assistance to launch my Sharkstopper product. Wish me luck.
Embarking on this new venture it's great having you as a mentor. You have provided the compass to guide me on this journey. It's exciting to bring a new product to life.
Coach Matt Yubas,
I want to thank you for your Kit. This provided invaluable information for me in putting my patent together, launching my product, how to market and finding capital.
A few years ago I developed what I considered
a great idea. I called various Patent attorneys to find out how to go about getting
a patent on my idea. Wow, what an eye opener that exercise was. All I could see
they were interested in was dollar signs. I got estimates anywhere from a low
of $10,000 up to $35,000+ to see a patent thru.
I then headed out to the web to search for a solution I could afford and came across your website. What a revelation that was.
Without delay I ordered your Kit. Upon receipt I immediately delved into the details of what I need to do to develop my idea, and get it into the market.
I immediately took my finished product SmartiTag to several retail outlets, one of them was Walmart. I spoke with the manager of our local store. He loved the idea and set up a meeting with the buyer at their headquarters in Bentonville. I took the ideas you had in your Kit and applied them to my presentation with the buyer at Walmart. He loved the product and within 7-months we had the product in the Super Walmart stores.
Thanks again for your help and great Kit. They were an inspiration to me and others I have shared with. Keep up the good work.
You gave me valuable advice and encouragement and helped me to calculate the profitability of one of my products, The Healthy Diet Chart. Since speaking with you, The Healthy Diet Chart has been chosen as one of the Top Ten Best Products for Parents!! Thank you Matthew for all your help!!

You truly ARE my Coach, and you're every bit the man of integrity I expected you to be from what I gathered on your website and the Internet in general. You have kept me on the right track. I look forward to tapping into your expertise once again.
Kevin Mills, Lubbock, TX
I was so impressed by your knowledge and suggestions. But what struck me the most was that you were able to offer very specific and valuable suggestions to help me get my product into retail after only a few questions to get to know my product! I'll continue to use your coaching services to get to reach my profit goals.
Lauren Hasson, Career Coach
I am emailing you because I wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all the help you have given me.
From preparing to start business to actually getting my first prototype completed. We finally have our first shipment in and I wanted to let you know that they are selling a bit faster then I had hoped for. We are actually going to be out before the next shipment gets here. It is not a bad thing. <Smile>.
There is NO WAY I could have gotten this far without your help. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My future wife is so happy that I had someone like you to help guide me and give me advice and at times actually send me leads. I am also very happy and consider the investment I made asking for your help was by far the best investment I have made to date. Next to our GIANT BOWS of course. <Smile>.
Thank you Matthew . You have really helped make CR Bows the success it is today.
Thank you so much for being my Coach Matthew. You are GREAT!!!!!!!
I hope we can keep in touch throughout the coming years.
THANK YOU so much for your follow through on personally making sure that I did receive my order in time to give it as a Father's Day gift. One doesn't see your type of outstanding customer service skills now days.
Robert K. Hesketh, West Hills, CA
By following your easy to read instructions, I have a patent on my product and am currently negotiating directly with potential licensees. I no longer feel like an amateur inventor, I truly feel like a product developer thanks to you! Thanks Matthew !!
Bill Graham, San Diego, CA
I want to thank you so much for taking the time to make sure I understood why following certain steps it is so important in being successful, and saving a lot of money. You already saved me 10 times the money I would have spent foolishly.
But more important I now understand why it would have been foolish. I have spoke to many people who bring products to market and all they wanted me to do is spend, spend, spend, it was like talking to salesmen all the time. With you it was like finding a friend who knew just what to do. Thank you for your help in making this complicated process manageable. I feel I can now make educated choices.
Your new friend,

Companies Need New Ideas
Companies need new products to grow. Companies are busy with daily tasks and have less time to create and come up with new product ideas.
Companies need new products to increase profit, get to market quicker, beat the competition, and provide more of a selection to their customers.
With companies cutting back on staff, many are looking to the outside for new ideas. They're looking for:
- Kitchen gadgets
- Personal products
- Auto accessories
- Sporting goods
- Home office solutions
- New innovations and technology
Examples of News Articles:
"Firms Looking Outside for Ideas" - Boston Globe
"Looking Outside the Company for Ideas" - Proctor & Gamble
"Looking for Ideas from Small Business" - Dept. of Homeland Security
Why Inventors Get Ideas Rejected?
Inventors tell me all the time how they were rejected or just don't hear back from companies. And companies are frustrated in that inventors don't know how to properly submit and present their ideas.
Inventors are constantly guilty of causing their good inventions to be rejected by companies. The common reasons for rejection or never hearing back include:
- Inventors use the wrong method to submit and present to companies.
- Inventors don't show how their idea is a fit with the company's product line and target market.
- Inventors send their patent without any market information.
- Inventors don't show the profit potential to the company.
- Inventors don't consider the cost to manufacture and market.
