I am Samir Hanna Safar, small businesses owner and a creative inventor. I have 16 U.S. utility patent. I desire very much to share my creativity with the world, and to make it a better place. My creativity is not limited to inventing things, and getting them patented. I am an author of creativity and innovation books, including The Five Pillars of Creative Thinking. I have also applied my creative knowledge to helping small business owners get started, with this book the 56 Small Business Rules.
Ultimately, I want to share my experience in small business with the world by teaching people how not to make the same mistakes.
My formal higher learning started with acquiring a B.S. in microbiology, from the University of Minnesota.
