What do feel is the toughest obstacle facing the ground floor inventor in this global environment?

The biggest obstacle for us is entering a market where most products are made in China. We have a goal to manufacture in the US, but many manufacturers are not tooled up for our type of plastic film application.

How much time to you spend per day, per week, or per month on inventing or on invention-related activity?

Feels like 24/7!

Okay, such choices are tough, pick one more if you want or name a new category.

So, are you an: inventor, model maker, industrial designer, patent agent or lawyer, manufacturer, an investor or a dreamer?

I'm an inventor and design curator for our business.

Introduction

I am the founder of Loft 312 Inc., a modern pet products company. We are currently selling our products in over 150 retail stores across the country and interested in meeting more manufacturers and designers in the Chicagoland area.
