Thankful for this advice: Figure out what the need is before you design an invention

As summer winds down, I’m reminiscing about some of my favorite experiences of the summer, including a visit with Jay Sugarman for a recording of his television series, New TV.

In this segment from the show I talk with Jay about some of the best advice my fellow cofounder, Andres “Dre” Chamorro III and I received from an angel investor as we were just starting out with our plant training system. That advice helped us narrow our focus on diversifying the types of plants that could be grown indoors with automated horizontal plant-training technology. Now, as we prepare for sales to start on September 30 at the Trella Store, I think back with gratitude for this free advice.
