HELP ME PLEASE
i have an invention that i have created a working prototype for and i have looked around with multiple patent searches and have not turned up anything like what i have invented. i am however confused and overwhelmed with what the next step is and how i am to accomplish it. i want to get a patent and possibly/probably sell my idea/design but i would like to talk to someone that has either been through the entirety of the process before or has a good amount of knowledge in the area.
one more fact that may or may not be relevant: i'm only a high school senior.
any help is greatly appreciated.
thank you all
