Business 101: Painless Prototyping as an Educational Opportunity

From its inception, Painless Prototyping has been one big educational experience. It all began when I decided I wanted to learn about building circuit boards. In the process, I stumbled upon a solution to an issue I had when prototyping electronics and decided to share my idea with the maker community and thus, Painless Prototyping was born.

I’ve come into this adventure with experience in web design, photography, and creating basic electrical circuits. On the other hand, I’ve had to figure out Kickstarter, advertising, social media, video making/editing and circuit board design on my own. There are countless challenges ahead but that doesn’t scare me and I’m guessing if you’re reading this, it doesn’t scare you either.

Going forward, I plan to dedicate blog posts to various topics I’ve already learned about including:

  • What I learned from Kickstarter
  • How to Build Circuit Boards
  • Website Design
  • Social Media
  • Product Photography
  • Advertising
  • Video Making/Editing

And topics I’ve yet to touch (in no particular order):

  • Customer Service
  • Warranties
  • Taxes
