Take Chances By Believing In Your Creativity

Early safety pins were actually not safe at all. The sharp tips poked out from the “protective” end, scratching skin and snagging clothing. Despite its weaknesses, the basic design had not changed much in 4000 years. In 1849, an indebted inventor named Walter Hunt convinced his creditors to forgive his debt if he was able to shape an old piece of wire into something useful and grant them development rights to his creation. Within three hours, Hunt had devised the modern safety pin. The debt was paid and the creditors made a fortune.
