The end-of-year holiday season is a time for memories and reflection and I found myself engaging in a little of both the other day.
I was alone at the house, and was stringing up some Christmas lights and found myself drifting back in time … to middle school and high school.
In seventh grade, I got my first part-time job – changing light bulbs at an apartment complex. I also began designing and building custom light boxes using colored bulbs controlled with staggered timing switches.
In my freshman year in high school – for my electronics class – I put together a pretty sophisticated strobe light from a nice kit. That was my introduction to capacitors, diodes and wiring diagrams.
There was a reason for this mental road trip.
You see, the lights that I was stringing up around the perimeter of my house the other day happen to use a very specialized technology.
And this specialized technology is something that I knew you’d want to hear about because it represents a massive profit opportunity.
