    Hello everyone. I have a few ideas for bass specific accessories that I would like to manufacture. I have no business background; as such, I'm totally clueless how to begin.

    Does anyone here have experience creating and developing a product and seeing it through to manufacture?

    Any help on the following topics would be appreciated:
    patents, small business start-up, music product manufacturing, etc.

    My ideas aren't quite earth shattering, but I believe there would be a potential market. Not only that, but I think it may be time for a career change!;)

  2. Having started 3 new businesses, one had over 125 employees, one had 45, the last one, was only 1, me. When people make their hobby or passion into a business, usually, the problem arises in poor management and money handling. I would suggest you take some type of business management course which covers, marketing and tax compliance.

    That's a sound idea. I will look into some classes at the local universities.

    You hit the nail on the head: I'm hoping to turn my passion into a business opportunity.
