A personal message from the Riordan Company's CEO, Jim Riordan
Are your ideas worth money? I'll bet at least some of them are! My ideas
have definitely been worth money. Have you ever made $65,000.00 for a few
hours work? I have, and I'm not trying to brag. I'm trying to make the point
that if I am able to sell good ideas then you can too.
|Jim reviewing products|
I want you to do the same or better than I have! I am extremely grateful
to have been able to participate in so many exciting projects and to reap the
benefits over the past 25 years. I never know where my next idea will come
from. I get them in the shower. I get them while I am dreaming. Sometimes
they just pop into my head as I'm driving down the road. I believe these are
true gifts from above. I have no other logical explanation. I have a strong
belief that if we are given these ideas as gifts, then to waste them by not
pursuing them is doing both yourself and the one who "gave" you the idea an
About the only gambling I do, other than gambling the engine won't quit
when the wheels leave the ground in my aerobatic plane, is on my own ideas and
I have "won" over and over with them. If you have good ideas, you can gamble on
yourself and "win" as well. I hope you will take the time to look around this
site and see some of the products and projects we have worked on over the years. You may even see something and go, "hey, I thought of that five years ago."
Well, the dollars were made by the person who followed through and made that
idea a reality.
Inventing for a living is a pretty neat dream career. I have a really short
commute. Upstairs to downstairs. The only time I hit traffic is when Snoopy, our
corporate chief of security . .er , . .ok, ok, our dog, playfully refuses to let
me go down the stairs. The meanest person I will have to deal with all day is
right there in my mirror.
Isn't it an almost universal dream to be able to work when you want, where you
want, doing what you want? Don't we all dream of no commute? Doesn't everyone
want the best things in life for their family? A good education for their kids? Don't you want the time and financial freedom to enjoy the good life? If you have
good ideas you may be able to live that dream. We have been enjoying it for 25
years. What makes us different is that we KNOW first hand HOW to do it. We ARE
successful, we HAVE a proven track record, we HAVE satisfied clients and we HAVE
extensive references. We are REAL!
Everyone has good ideas in their lifetime. Some folks have been chosen to
receive lots of good ideas. The difference between living your dreams and
struggling just to get by may very well be narrowed down to one factor: Following
through. If you never follow through on your ideas, you may never live your dream. If however, you do follow through on your ideas you may be able to experience the
financial rewards, freedom and security that your ideas can bring. To put this
in perspective, I know lots of great people who have made enough money to pay
for a new house in full with one single idea. They all have one thing in common,
they followed through.
There are lots of different and creative ways to sell your ideas. If you
are happy with your job, you can still sell your ideas and inventions on the side
to make college tuition dollars for your kids, vacation dollars or "hobby" dollars
to buy the toys you want.

who used it on an album!
Inventing for a living has been exciting and both financially and
intellectually rewarding for me. Now, I am enjoying watching my clients
learn to invent for a living and that is proving to be the most personally
rewarding part of my career; helping others get to experience the
personal and financial rewards of pursuing their ideas.
So, how do you get started? Before you go to a patent attorney and
spend money, the only logical first step is to determine whether or not your
idea is a good one and whether it is even worth patenting. Remember, a patent
does not guarantee that your product will end up in the stores. The one who
gets a good product on store shelves reaps the benefits. Above all, do not
go to one of those flaky invention marketing companies. They will never tell
you the truth. You need to know the truth. Is this a good idea that
will make you money or a bad idea that will cost you money and WHY??
How can you find out? We offer you a couple of choices.
||We will evaluate your product for you, in as much depth as you
want, either in person or on the phone, in confidence and with non-disclosure
agreements (NDAs) signed.
||If you are one of those many people who do not want to reveal
your idea, you can evaluate your own product yourself, without
revealing your idea to anyone, using our 36 point evaluation
systems. Your first step should be to take our
FREE Initial Idea Evaluation
which will give you a very rough idea of whether you
have a potential winner. If you come out with a score of 60%
or better, you should then do a thorough and complete evaluation using our CD
to Evaluate the Potential For Success of a New Product
or Technology which you can then use for every idea you have from now on.
If your product comes through the evaluation a winner, Riordanco
will help you realize your dreams. We will help you find manufacturers,
suppliers, reps, distributors, dealers and customers! Our clients choose
the Riordan Company because:
||Our rates are reasonable
||We will always keep your information confidential
||We will always sign your non-disclosure agreements
or provide you with one
||We never charge up front
||We do not take a percentage of your product
||You must always be satisfied before you pay us
||We have references.
If your idea has already been evaluated, or your product is already in
development, you are ready to get started on your own path to profit.
Your next step is to obtain our
Concept To Profit
system available on CD.
Our Concept to Profit System will literally walk you through each and every
step of taking your product from your initial concept to collecting and protecting
your profits. You will learn, at your own pace, every step of the
inventing-for-a-living process in logical, detailed steps.
The skills you learn will be with you for the rest of your life. No one can take them away!
One thing is for sure. Your dreams will never become reality unless you
follow through. A wise person once said, "There are those who make it happen,
those who watch it happen and those who wonder what happened." Be one of those
who make it happen! Please, do it for yourself and the one who "gave" you the
idea. Follow through!
I hope you get the feeling that I am speaking to you from the heart.
I am. The next steps are up to you.
