Where North Florida's Inventors and Innovators Come together.  NFIIG.com. North Florida Inventors/Innovators Social Group.
The North Florida Inventors/Innovators Group will meet Wednesday July 29th at 12 noon at River City Brewing Company at 835 Museum Circle Jacksonville Florida.   PLEASE RSVP IF YOU WILL BE JOINING US......

                             DOING THE 3-2 CHA-CHA

Our guest speaker Amy Calfee will speak to the need to get out of the vacuum of developing. As Inventors and entrepreneurs we sometimes get caught up in the bells and whistles of our product...and fail to understand the needs and desires of our potential business license/manufacturing partners.  

She will speak to how Inventors/innovators should focus on the benefits to the Licensee or manufacturer so as to improve the odds of a successful business agreement.  
Amy Calfee.... 
Your Chief Listening Officer Founder & CLO 
Listening is at the heart of every great relationship. 
Amy is a providential entrepreneur, following her passion for marketing and communication in all its forms for most of her life. 
Entrepreneurs, small business owners, and organization leaders work with Amy to find the answers to two, foundational questions that form the basis of marketing strategy: who cares and why do they care? From there, I help them understand “what is,” then take bold action to reach their goals. 
Others have recognized the impact of this work. The U.S. Small Business Administration named Amy the first Home-based Business Advocate of the Year for her region. Amy has earned awards of merit from national associations, and has produced trademarks and developed patented product concepts. 
You can see more about Amy on her website... TemerityCreative.com 

River City Brewing Company does not charge us for the use of the room but does require that everyone who attends purchase lunch.

Cheers on Inventing/Innovating.

Here is one of my favorite quotes which relates to all steps of the Invention/Get to Market process. 

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan PRESS ON! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."....Calvin Coolidge

Thank you to everyone who continues to talk to and encourage others to attend our group.

Feel free to send interested folks to www.nfiig.com If they sign up in the contact area, I will add them to the list of updates.

Cheers on Inventing/Innovating.

When you look into your future, What do you see? Will it be you pursuing your goals, concepts, and dreams, or will it be you saying Gosh I thought of that idea 10 years ago but never pursued it?
If Not Now, When?......
