SELF-MARKETING: Ideas Are Free For The Picking

Ideas are free, and always ripe for the picking and promoting. Consider Rita J. King's mystery and other jars. She packages condensed memories, pieces of places and even souls of books into little corked jars.

She attaches attractive tags, museum-quality tags, mind you, and offers these little time capsules for sale. Why? Because she had a vision about condensing the memory box, travel album and dusty stack of long-ago read books into neat, portable jars. She saw the value of and became excited about offering these reduced experiences to today's driven consumer.

Her excitement was catching, as all excitement is, and she launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund her venture. The upscale tags, among other things, impressed some of the investors. I like the corked bottle and her fonts.

I think it's a great idea. Very unique. Very attractive. Very interesting. Very much catering to our lives today, which more frequently must be managed, digested and experienced in condensed form. We just don't have the space or time for anything else.

How clever of Ms. King to create this revenue stream, and at the same time, design an exquisite method for herself to enjoy famous locations and obscure locales. As she collects pieces of places and bits of locations for her Imagination Glyph Mystery Jars, I'm sure she feels very fortunate to have uncorked her creative flow on this one.

Now what is YOUR excuse for not releasing your vision. Your creative idea, unlike Ms. King's, can't help you or others if you continue to keep it bottled; inside that is.
