They are persistent. Obstacles loom in front of us on a regular basis. But it’s what you do when faced with these barriers that will determine your level of success.

Successful inventors are avid goal setters. They make sure their goals are specific, motivational, achievable yet challenging, relevant to their personal situation, and time-framed.

Great inventors ask quality questions. The most effective way to present their product is to uncover their customers’ goals, objectives, concerns, and hesitations.

Successful inventors listen. Great inventors ask questions and listen carefully to the responses.
