Me and a friend were trying to start a business we have a few ideas for products we would like to sell, however i am running into issues with deciding if I need a patient. All the confusion is starting to pull me away from even wanting to start this business, and I need help. I'm not sure about the practicality of a patient at this point since it's a somewhat novice idea and I am unsure of how well it will sell, and if someone could make a profit on it if they did steal the idea, and just generally if a patient will pay it's self off I believe that may be a harder question to answer considering that I'm not describing the product, however if it is any help I have seen a few people talk about a Issue this could solve before. I am also wondering if I would be able to sell this product during the time it is being processed or has a patient pending on it because if I can't sell it in this time it's practically useless getting a patient in the first place. Thanks for any help sorry for the long post.
