By Dan Western
Thomas Edison is much more of an inspiration than you think;
Most of us remember Thomas Edison as the genius inventor, responsible for sustainable light bulbs, the motion picture, the phonograph and the other 1090 odd inventions of his that helped change and shape the world as it is today.
