Secrets of Successful Women Inventors: How They Swam with the "Sharks" and Hundreds of Other Ways to Commercialize Your Own Inventions
“Edith G. Tolchin has spent her entire career working with inventors. In Secrets of Successful Women Inventors, Edith highlights some of the greatest top-notch successful women inventors and reputable service providers, all eager to share their stories and advice. In her easy-going, personable style, Edith has gleaned the 'cream of the crop' from each of these impressive women. It’s a gift to anyone who’s ever had a winning idea but nowhere to go and no roadmap to birth their vision.” ―Barbara Corcoran, “Shark” on ABC’s hit TV show Shark Tank and founder of the Corcoran Group.
Until recently, history has tended to highlight male inventors―but why not women inventors as well? And where are the women inventors of color? Why have so many of these women not found their rightful places in history? Thankfully, over the last few decades―with increasing opportunities to shatter the “glass ceiling”―women have begun to achieve equal footing with men in careers and in salaries. Women worldwide have also made great gains with their inventions! While in the past, many of their inventions have been largely related to the improvement of household and child care items, things have changed. With women achieving influential positions in business, scientific research, and government―women’s creative innovations are limitless.
In her new book, Secrets of Successful Women Inventors, Edith G. Tolchin reveals the real-life stories of over twenty successful modern-day women inventors―stories that describe their hard work, frequent struggles, and relentless dedication to their ideas. Ms. Tolchin presents a look behind the scenes at their respective journeys―from their inventions first being sketched on napkins to the creation of multimillion-dollar companies―and offers sound advice to future inventors from several accomplished invention service providers. She also includes brief snippets of information on women inventors throughout history.
While this book is about women who had dreams and made them come true, it can also serve as a blueprint for any woman looking to turn her own ideas into reality.
