In this podcast interview interview Julia M Rhodes from http://kleenslate.com/ talks about her inventor’s journey from being a teacher, to bringing to market her first invention, an eraser to go on the end of dry erase markers. What I found really interesting was how she first managed to get a lot of publicity for her product without spending hardly anything, and you will hear how she did this in the podcast. Julia has also written a book called The Right Sisters: Woman Inventors Tell Their Stories which looks at the journeys of ten women inventors (which I have just ordered myself). Julia also has a coubple of blogs where you can read more about her and keep up with news about Kleenslate http://kleenslate.com/blog/ http://www.inventorandentrepreneurship.blogspot.com/
Julia is currently looking for partners to get her products into the UK and other countries, if anyone thinks they can help please get in touch with her via her website http://kleenslate.com/contact-us/
