Bob Serling – Inventing Products and Licensing Them for Evergreen Royalties

Bob Serling

This is round two talking with Bob Serling on our podcast. Bob has worked with fun product ideas like skateboards and toys over the years and alongside guys like Tony Hawk. He’ll explain why it’s easier than you think to reach out to companies, big and small with your ideas and the best way to approach them, as well as why inventing is such a great side hustle for entrepreneurs.

On the low end, Bob has made $30-$40 thousand a year and on the high end and as much as $1.5 million. He’s got a proprietary process that has 37 questions which will stimulate ideas and discusses how he uses this method to come up with ideas for existing products that will make them better, easier to use or simply more fun the end user.

If you have any ounce of interest in inventing at all, you’ll want to listen to Bob’s take on his process and how he has succeeded without spending a lot of money upfront, hiring expensive patent attorneys or sourcing out costly prototypes.

If you are developing products, you want to jump from thing to thing. It doesn’t hold you back, it actually advances you.” – Bob Serling
