Phase 1 would be customer discovery. You should use that to shape an MVP, which is generally a prototype that is just enough for the customers to have a decent idea of what you're envisioning. Along the way remember to ask open ended question and recognize that "your baby is ugly". Try to break the idea. Fail fast and iterate. I would also work on filling out a business model canvas. Phase 2 would be filing your provisional and cast a very wide net. Lawyer will help you with this. Phase 3 hire a design firm that can help you figure out design for manufacturing and any related regulatory certifications. Phase 4 file a true patent application that issues based on the date of your provisional. Phase 5 the go to market push. Might need to raise funding along the way and pursue some other steps, but that's the broad picture.
