Summary

It was that aha moment....

And it changed their lives forever.

What sparks the inventor’s mind?

Deborah Chester had a dream about two tornados hitting her house. Then, it happened and she became homeless. Then, her husband had a dream. In his dream, the idea for the Rim Pro-Tec came to him.

Now, they are millionaires.

We all get hungry. Snacking can be serious business. Dan Ferrara hated the messy hands from finger foods, so he set out to do something about it.

He created Trongs. They let you get your nom, nom, nom on without the mess.

And who knew there would be a market for spandex bodysuits? Colin Grussing figured it out and was a guest on Shark Tank with his invention Root Suit. When they asked if he had made any money, he said, “Hell yeah.” In the previous year, 10,000 units sold for a profit of $104,000.

Have you ever had an idea? Could it change the world? Where do you go first? What will be your invention journey?

The following are stories of invention written by their inventors because their paths to success just may show you the way. At the very least, they will entertain and inspire.

The narrator was wonderfully

I enjoy being able to learn so much in such a short amount of time. This would be a fun game to play with older children while they are doing crafts or something similar.

Great narration too!

This is a true treasure! With all of these 1800s movers and shakers building up to this crescendo of storytelling, it's quite wonderful.

This is one of the best-written book

A fascinating inside look at the intertwined stories of a bygone era. We rarely think about this period of time.

This is probably my first Audible story

A one-of-a-kind and startling historical tidbit I was on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would happen. A fantastic performance.
