Success Stories

  • 10/08/2010
  • 7:00 PM
  • Science Lecture Hall, Orange Coast College, 2701 Fairview Rd Costa Mesa, CA 92626


This is one of our most exciting seminars of the year.  You'll get to hear the secrets of 6 successful inventors.  Each speaker will give a short five to ten minute overview of their invention, how they developed it, what type of help they needed, and the secrets they used to break through into the marketplace with a successful product.  The best part?  You get to ask them questions and network with them after the seminar. 

Our Success Stories speakers are:


1. Jeff Sallee and Mark Schnose, The Multi-Shaker


Jeff Sallee and Mark Schnose enjoy a 30 year friendship and have recently joined together to form a new product development partnership called Visionary Directions, LLC.  Both have been members of the Inventor’s forum for about one year. They have combined their creativity to develop what they call the “The Multi-Shaker”.  Even on a shoe string budget their very first product innovation quickly caught the attention of the top four manufacturers in the percussion instrument market.  They are proud to have successfully licensed it to the worldwide leading manufacturer - Latin Percussion. Their product is currently in production and is set for a worldwide debut in January, 2011 at the music industry’s NAMM show in Anaheim.  They will share some of the successes, failures and inspirations they encountered during this maiden voyage.
