Did you know that creative entrepreneurs often leave their best, most profitable brand assets completely vulnerable?
You work really hard to create an amazing program or come up with the perfect name, only to discover that someone else has started using your best messaging statements. Not cool, right?
It’s happened to me several times over the last 20 years and unless you take the right steps to protect your brand assets, you’ll sink countless dollars into trying to recover your assets (and might not win.)
