You are in the shower and that solution to the problem that you have been pondering for weeks finally hits you! But, in the moment, you think that you’ll write it down later or somehow remember it later and that’s how the story ends, right? Nope, you end up forgetting that brilliant idea of yours.
A few weeks later, you discover that someone else has launched the very same solution to the problem you have been racking your brain about- the exact same thing that had been bothering you for weeks!
Now, this is why these are the three things you MUST protect from idea thieves: (1) your money; (2) your trust; and (3) your energy. How, do you ask, protect these?
First, you must secure your ideas from others by utilizing tools available to you from the United States Government. This includes trademarking, copyrighting, and contracts. These tools are available to YOU and you can easily utilize them by contacting a business attorney such as myself to help guide you through the process.
Make this commitment now, and early on, so that you will not regret this later!
