If your idea is too great and it looks like a fantasy than a vision, then you have to downgrade it a little bit in a sense that it is more realistic and achievable. Granted that great inventions begin with broad imagination of the inventor, but you also have to remember that you will need to consider your investors. Maybe for you it is achievable, but no matter how great, big your idea is, maybe in the eyes of your investors it is impossible to happen or it's not achievable.
The best thing to do is if you don't have the funding for yourself and you will rely on others people money to make your ideas into real, consider how your investors will look at your ideas. Are they going to assume that, yes it might be going to be a big and great invention if it can be finished? They are probably seeing it as not achievable for the mean time.
Reserve your big ideas in the future when you think you are ready and already proven yourself or wait until you can fund it yourself. For the meantime, you will do better if you will stick at simple ideas and present it in a way that your investors will be convinced that it can be created, because it's doable.

He noticed that he or most people, the moment they come home, they are putting down their laptop, their phone and their MP3 player onto the table, then he had this idea of inventing one gadget where it will function as three gadgets: as computer, as phone and as music player. He was able to come up and invent a smart phone.
The point is he had an idea of improving and combining those things that people are already familiar with, then invented a gadget as one of the great inventions in the history that people learn and keep loving nowadays. Remember most inventions nowadays are just better improvements of things that we are already familiar with, so then investors will more likely willing to invest if they can see that the idea you are presenting is not impossible to achieve.

Yes, who says that the word "Professional" can only be applied or use by people who already proven themselves? You can be professional even if you are an Amateur who has no experience yet by means of actions. Now, how can you show that you are a professional even though you are an Amateur inventor?
Be organize. Document all your research, your theories, everything. Put everything in paper and present your findings in a pattern or format that it is clearly showing that your report is organized. Review your reports, your documents before showing it to your investors. Make sure that the document will reflect yourself.
Make sure that the report itself is created by a person who really puts time and effort on his ideas and really shows that you know what you are doing.
