Eddie Turner
Tennessee Inventors Association.

“Hello, my name is Eddie Turner. I have been on a journey for the last few years that still continues even after we signed our licensing agreement for my invention Cart Dolly — for which we are very excited about. We hope to have them ready for sale around the hardware show.

I say we because I’m a member of the Tennessee Inventors Association, my local inventors group. I feel that they are as excited as I am, and a crucial part of my success.

This is a scary, expensive and long process. Don’t try it alone! Find your local inventors group. Check out my invention at www.cartdolly.com.”

“Guess how I made an easy $1,000 last night? …and NO, I didn’t get paid with folded dollar bills!

I won the San Diego Inventors Forum invention contest with my Impact Shovel Tool!

And get this…it beat two rocket scientists pitching their Hydrogen Rail Gun micro-satellite orbital launcher, as well as other cool ideas than mine with impressive pedigrees and more polished presentations! What?

Really cool experience.”
