Inventors – Everyday Edisons TV Casting Calls

Friday, February 15th, 2008

If you are an inventor or an aspiring inventor, you might want to check out the upcoming casting call dates for the Everyday Edisons TV show ( – check “Casting Calls” in “The Show” section).

Upcoming 2008 casting call dates:
– San Francisco/San Jose (California): Saturday, February 16
– Dallas: Saturday, March 15
– Chicago: Saturday April 19
– Northeast (TBD): Saturday, May 17

Be sure to scroll down and read through the “Frequently Asked Questions” section because it will help to prepare you for pitching your idea. Please direct any questions to the Everyday Edisons folks at and not to me, as I have no connection to the show.

This notice came from my friend Andrew Krauss, president of the Inventors Alliance (, who will have a booth at the San Jose event. (I’ll probably be there helping out.) Inventors Alliance is a great association providing very practical advice on how to inexpensively bring your product to market.

Additionally, successful inventor Stephen Key, will be a speaker at the San Jose event. Stephen is Andrew’s partner in their other business InventRight (, Stephen also has another great business Hot Picks USA ( which has transformed guitar picks with cool designs into collectibles. Stephen is a great person to listen to as he is a rare combination of creativity, salesmanship, and streetwise business shrewdness.

Hope to see you there!
