However here goes.
I believe if I write it down and publish it, I will have more kudos when following through with it.
My goal coming back to the USA is to take time off work. Educate myself in the engineering fields. Network with more like-minded business professionals who share a similar passion and most importantly; team building.
I have always funded my own projects. My funding at times was not always large therefore I had to follow through with a small budget. Often times I had to deal with lower to mid quality (so called) professionals who would often waste my money but most importantly, my time. Time is a very valuable commodity. Time can never be paid back once its wasted.
My long term goal is to become more familiar, hands on, with the engineering side that I can eventually find either one major investor or several contributing investors.
More specifically, those that would be interested in investing in a company that will develop a brand (or several brands) manufacturing and distributing in general electronic(s) or household item(s) that would eventually make its way on to the shelves of major stores like Walmart, Target, Best Buy and more.
The type of products I am talking about are those that can be continuously sold for 3-10 years and beyond. I am not interested in making products that will be replaced by another product 1-4 months down the road.
Research, Development, Moulds, Engineering is not cheap. I have been there, done that. Its high paced, high risk and with the Chinese companies that copy any and all of the latest gadgets on the market, its not worth going through all the trouble.
I also want to thank in advance for all those that have and will be supporting me through my new ventures. Working together, helping one another is something this society as a whole needs.
So there you have it. My 2012 plans. Hope you enjoyed them and continue to follow me and my progress around through out this amazing (and exciting) new year!
