This makes it more foolproof, no real skill needed

I see what she was trying to do

Not sure how secure the pins/clips ate



Yes that's sorta what I was thinking. Some can't even put needle to weft to attempt sewing.

~deleted the 1st part of my comment b/c i dont intend to give anyone any ideas and I definitely dont want anyone to swipe her concept~

For certain concepts, it is best to protect your idea, get a bank loan for financing for the product & marketing...it is a dog eat dog industry and the Chinese vendors stay on the hunt...they are all over IG stealing pix and product ideas...bless her heart.

I worked for a consumer goods company not many years ago and in the many industry periodicals that I used to read, it was crystal clear that a lot of people world wide are getting paid big bucks to surf all of the forums and blogs that we all are familiar with to steal new product ideas from the 'gurus' and the posters that innocently post new maintenance & care tricks. The blogs/forums/youtube gurus names were thrown around left and right in the articles.

I believe it.  The amount of things stolen from here alone let me know that.

I even scanned some of the mindblowing articles from the industry publications with intent to post them on bhm, then i was like, eh, why bother, the depth will go over people's heads, and now, who knows where I saved those jpgs lol

Last update:

Ole girl did it! Clap


Note, I have no affiliation with her, just like her story, and the fact that she gave this a shot.  We've been chatting back and forth on reddit, but one huge takeaway from this is that ideas don't have to be perfect. You can get moving with something, improve on it, and win.  Biggest thing is to get moving on something.I'm really enjoying this little uptick of black folks getting stuff funded on kickstarter. Awesome!!!!
