Hey I'm Marshall Haas

Ten years ago I started tinkering with ideas for physical products. Through trial, error, and some painful years, I figured things out the hard way.

I've turned my ideas into real physical products and have been fortunate to grow several into profitable 7-figure businesses that have changed my life. All of my current businesses can be viewed at needwant.com.

This course will shortcut your learning curve and teach you what I wish I knew when I got started. I'll take you through every step using several of my own products to show you from the inside how to do it all.

Product Lessons

The product brands I've created and will teach you from.

"I have ideas for physical products... but I'm not really sure where to start"

Who is this course for?
Do you watch other entrepreneurs launch physical product businesses with envy... eager to dive in with your own ideas?

Hey I've been there. Ten years ago I started tinkering with ideas for physical products. I didn't have any formal training... I just winged it through trial, error, and some very painful years.

This course will shortcut your learning curve and teach you what I wish I knew when I got started. I'll take you through every step using several of my own products to show you from the inside how to do it all while avoiding my early mistakes.


The essential knowledge you need to build a product business for yourself

Shortcut your learning curve
The goal is to create your product ideas so you can ultimately build a business around them. By the end of this course you should have your physical product idea produced, in your hands, and ready for sale.

I've distilled my 10 years of experience into the essential information you need. We'll start with just an idea, mold it into something better, then get it manufactured, packaged, and ready to ship to future customers.

I want to help you skip the mistakes and get to building your business quickly. I'll be your instructor, teaching from hard-won experience.



Create your ideas in the most cost efficient way

Bootstrapped & profitable
This course is taught through the lens of a resourceful bootstrapper. You'll learn how to be scrappy and resourceful while bringing your ideas to life.

Let's be real, it costs money to create physical product businesses. However, this course will focus on the methods to do it in the most cost efficient way possible while also avoiding costly mistakes.

I started out with very little money to get my ideas off the ground. I'll show you how to do the same.



Take the course at
your own pace

Recorded lessons & resources
The course will be delivered via recorded video lessons. I teach with well designed slides and graphics to make things as clear as possible.

You'll be able to watch the lessons as many times as you'd like with access forever. I've also included spreadsheets and resources to make your journey as easy as possible.
