Turning Ideas into Products with Doug Patt

Enoch SearsNov 11, 2015

Have you ever felt that you have a creation inside of you waiting to come out? Perhaps an invention that you're sure would change the world, or perhaps a book that you would love to write.

Today's show is all about taking your skills and training as an architect and applying it to other areas like writing and product development.

Our guest today currently works with the firm of Joeb Moore designing high-end custom homes, based in Greenwich, CT.

He's developed projects that have been published in a variety of magazines and professional publications.

In addition to practicing architecture, he is the creator of ‘How To Architect‘, an educational platform and YouTube video channel with over 12MM video views across the web.

He is the author of a book published by the MIT Press: “How to Architect”, and he is the creator of multiple products including the Architect's Birdfeeder which you can find online.

In today's show you'll discover:

  • What you need to do to take a product to market (hint: you'll need more than an idea) (23:34)
  • The best way to connect with people who can help you take your product to market (29:30)
  • How one simple video made Doug Patt an internet celebrity and YouTube sensation (14:20)
