In the patent process
What do you have to loose Just do it!
And you can do it your self!
Use the Do it your self patent course by Andrew Knight, it is a long long long boring class, it is worth the money.
Yell to your friends on the phone and beg and barter for help where you can get it. It is not easy but it is a lot easier than living with your self knowing you didn’t try, if you have had 1 idea you you have had a thousand and you regret not doing anything with a few of them.
Every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That’s not the place to become discouraged.
Thomas A. Edison
