From the Mind to the Marketplace
The Story of An Inventor, the Home Improvement Industry, His Wife and Her LoversBook - 2005
This is the story of a Canadian inventor and his wife who took a rough device created in the basement of their East Vancouver home and over nine years turned it into a product that is available at every major home-improvement retailer in Canada and a number of large outlets in the US. It is the story of how a man was changed from an architect to a full-time inventor, and how a woman was transformed from an academic criminologist to a marketing guru. It is the success story the couple has told a million times to friends, business groups and strangers who ask, "And what do you do?" It is the personal story of their particular dream--a story they believe illustrates how an idea can be taken from the mind of an inventor to the marketplace.
