Answers to Your Questions

I have what I think is a pretty good invention/ product idea. What do I do next?

Congratulations! Before you go in the direction of filing for a patent, have you made a workable model of the product? Maybe you should experiment with various materials to see what works best. Once you have a model in place, then you can look into asking investors from various places, such as family and friends for help to fund this idea and reproduce samples for potential investors to inspect. If it is truly a spectacular idea, I'm sure that the right people will come alongside you and help to move it forward.

You should also spend some time talking to as many successful business owners (especially in similar industries) as you can. This will help to give you perspective in terms of what works in that particular market/ industry, what is viable and can truly succeed as a product (as well as what it took for them to get started).

Furthermore, you will want to invest some money (to hire an attorney) in making sure that you don't reveal or discuss your product idea to anyone unless and until they sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) so that they are not allowed to "run" with your idea and make money from it.
