Me, myself, and Irenne • Edited

I have a invention however it is in a very competitive market. I contracted an Mechanical engineer who assessed it. Getting capital for R&D and patent search can be hard as I really don't understand how much to ask the investor and the percentage of ownership as well long term likely hood due to the fact further research needs to be done on patents to see if it will be an adaption of the idea to sell to the already established business. For the moment, I'm sticking to learning coding, something I like, in the hope of a job to help put toward my idea.

So what I'm getting at like you, Steff, is keep going. There are a lot times when I feel really down and feel like it's never going to happen, then I just put my mind into learning segments of information and forget about how big the challenge may be. Good practice not good luck. Wish you well
