Have you ever had a great idea for a new product or service only to see someone else beat you to the punch? Maybe you never really planned to pursue your invention but seeing someone else make million from an idea you came up with long ago is always tough to swallow.

I can think of a few instances where this has happened to me and I’m still holding on to one idea for a product I coined as part of an advertising class I took years ago. I think it would be a sure-fire hit but for whatever reason, I haven’t yet chased that dream (nor have I seen my idea show up on store shelves yet).

This week’s open forum is dedicated to this very topic. Have you ever come up with an idea only to find someone else profited from it years later? Or do you have an idea you’re tossing around that you think might be a winner? If so, let’s hear about it!
