    OYG 6: Everyone Doesn't Need A Trademark

    OYG 6: Everyone Doesn't Need A Trademark

    Everyone doesn’t need a trademark. 

    When you have an idea that can potentially change your life, the first thing you want to do is make sure someone doesn’t steal it from you. Sometimes that results in prematurely making investments you aren’t ready for. If you haven’t validated your idea and aren’t willing to do the work necessary to bring the idea to life, do not file for trademark registration. I mean if the mark you want to register isn’t associated with a good or service, not available in interstate commerce and isn’t unique you don’t have a trademark anyway. 

    If you enjoyed this episode of the Own Your Genius podcast let me know by rating the podcast and leaving a review. I read the reviews. I love knowing that you all are picking up what I’m dropping. 

    When you’re ready to protect your brand contact my office by visiting laconya@laconyamurray.com to get started.  Until next time, keep building your business, growing your brand, and owning your genius.

    OYG 4: Owning Your Genius While Working With Other People

    OYG 4: Owning Your Genius While Working With Other People

    Today’s question: I have a meeting scheduled with a potential consultant to discuss helping me flush out my ideas and turn them into products and services. If we work together, it could result in the creation of multiple forms of intellectual property. How can I protect my ideas and my interest while working?  Working with a consultant or coach is only one example of where you need to share your ideas with a third party. If you need to hire a developer, an assistant, or an employee, you’ll want to keep listening.

    How comfortable are you when it comes to working with third parties. Let’s keep the conversation going. Head over to the website and let me know what your reservations are when it comes to working with third parties. If you need a business plan or need to make sure your contract protects your interest, head over to the website, LaConyaMurray.com. Make sure to rate the podcast. Until next time, keep building your business, growing your brand, and owning your genius.

    OYG 3: Is Your Streamed Church Service Violating Copyright Laws

    Growing up it was common for churches to sing popular gospels songs. Well with the shift in our new normal, the question is how churches today are able to perform songs without violating the copyrights of the artist and producers. Excellent question. To answer it we’re going to start at the bottom and work our way up. 
    Let’s keep the conversation going. Are you attending church online? If so,  Head over to LaConyaMurray.com/blog to share the link, someone may be looking for a church home. I’ll share mine there as well.

    OYG 2. Now's Not The Time To Quit

    OYG 2. Now's Not The Time To Quit

    There are so many messages on how small business owners should be operating in this time. To sell or not to sell is the question some have. I think that question stems from another, how do we help our clients in this time.  Considering giving your products or services for free or not offering them at all isn’t about you at all. It’s out of consideration for your clients/customers. You want to be of service in this time and haven’t figured out how. Today I’m going to give you 5 ways you can be of service to your clients and community during this time.

    I want to hear from you. How are you serving your community during this time? Head over to laconyamurray.com and let me know.
