RESOURCES

Throughout our long history with TV sales and catalog sales we’ve developed a complex system of resources and networked with a wide range of different companies. 6 Ideas are the idea brokers for individuals and small companies. We have the resources you need. These companies and our relationship with them are available to help you to get your products to market or, if you’re a vendor, to find new products and services.
