Every day, inventors shrug their shoulders in resignation and say dejectedly, “Good help is so hard to find…”

That statement was likely true when I started as an inventor in 2002.

But, it's not hard to find good help today, if you know where to look.

Read on.

Especially, since I began doing the Inventors Helping Inventors podcast in mid-January, I have become aware that there are, in fact, lots of good resources to help inventors with a variety of needs.

So, listed below in no particular order are some resources to help you along your inventive journey. I will say, always do your own independent due diligence before choosing to work with anyone – that is just common sense. These are people I know and trust.

Stephen Key, InventRight

Stephen Key is an uber-successful serial inventor who has been helping inventors through his organization, InventRight for over 20 years with licensing and many other needs. He and his team are ready to hold your hand and guide you step-by-step, through the process. In addition, he and Andrew Krauss and other members of his team, as well as many inventors they have trained, can help you.

Mike Gillespie, Brite Ideas

Mike knows a thing or two about resilience and powering through adversity. He underwent brain tumor surgery, after which he had to learn to write left-handed and make other life adjustments. Mike is happy to help inventors with creating effective sell sheets, with drawings for their patents, packaging and more. He can be reached most easily at briteideas@att.net.

Scott Tarcy, CADDesignHelp.com

Scott Tarcy is a mechanical engineer, by trade, who got tired of the corporate treadmill and started his own business. Through CADDesignHelp.com, Scott can help inventors with CAD work (obviously) and drawings, but also with 3D printing and product design. From his offices in Charlotte, NC, he helps clients all over the world. Just reach out to him on his website.

Rita Crompton – the Inventor Lady

Rita Crompton is not an inventor herself, but she has been helping inventors with financial assistance (a rarity for inventors), licensing and other needs for a number of years. Through her program, Archimedes Offspring and the Inventors Galaxy Guide, she provides early stage financial assistance and process guidance to inventors. You can find these and other resources on www.inventorlady.com.

Alan Beckley – Inventors Helping Inventors

It's my blog, so I can list myself as a resource, as well.

I truly believe that a really great free resource for lots of inventors help is my weekly podcast for inventors called Inventors Helping Inventors. It is on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher and all the major podcast platforms. Every Monday, I interview interesting, successful inventors and ask them the questions you want to know. All of the above resources, have been featured guests on the show.

The above resources are far from an exhaustive list. In every major city, there are inventors clubs that can help you with many needs. There are also makers spaces that give you access to 3D printers, CNC machines and much else for a small monthly fee.

There has never been a better time to be an inventor than now. There are abundant resources available to help you. All you have to do is to look.

Stay tuned!
