Bad Economy Inspires Innovation

Did you know that some of the most important inventions in our history came at times when the economy was struggling? It’s true. The Industrial Age, The Computer Age and The Information Age all were sparked by innovative thinkers looking to kick-start consumer spending and ultimately change the way we live our lives. Pretty cool.

Here is a great article about some of the more famous inventions during the Great Depression:

One incredible story that you may be aware of is just two months following the attacks on 9/11, when the economy was upside down, the Apple iPod was first introduced. Not long after that, there began a cult like following that has created the most profitable in the US, Apple.

Although, the stock market, the deficit, the dollar and the political policies are in turmoil, maybe it is time to you think of pursuing some of your ideas. Who knows maybe you could have something that may change lives for years to come.

It is this concept of getting your ideas to market that has formed as the foundation for Odyssey Solutions. I hope that everyone reading this, that has an idea for a new product to nurture our creativity and if you are unsure how to make it a reality, contact us.
