Trademark That Thursdays®️: The Podcast
By Neena Speer
She makes trademark and biz literacy accessible for black business owners. Most people don't believe in you, so take your lunch & learn to BELIEVE IN YOU. In 2022, we will be featuring young minority business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs. The Trademark That Thursdays®️ podcast is about 15- 20 min tops of you telling us about your business and discussing trademark opportunities and questions you have.
When Will Our Black Lives Matter to You? ❤🖤💚
Imma say this real clear for yall one time. It doesn't matter if they had a criminal record or not. STOP USING CHARACTER EVIDENCE TO LEGITIMIZE KILLING BLACK PEOPLE brutally and murdering black people and black freaking children. I should hope you want your kids to know that you dont want BLACK CHILDREN living in fear while jogging, while sleeping, and while playing video games or eating ice cream at THEIR OWN home. WHAT POSSIBLE sense is that? Using criminal records AND race to determine jury, judge, and executioner? Think about that the next TIME you are quick to shout all lives matter at us. Its been a hard time for a long time. If Starbucks can realize how wrong trying to drown out voices of their black lives matter supporters is, why is it so hard for you? What more do you need? SO BOOM this is what I'm dropping a podcast on at 8pm CST tonight! I'm renaming Friday to be FREEDOM FRIDAYS! A non-minority (white) woman was ripping down Black Lives Matter signs because she said it was "defacing government property" in her community. Then when asked do you hate us that much ? She said yes with no hesitation! TELL ME YOUR THOUGHTS HERE!

Intentionality in Trademarks
Today I learned about Private Label Rights which is highly relevant to your course content that you may be trademarking the title for or copyrighting the content for. PLR is actually a way for you to license your protected goods for reuse. . . This means alllllls you gotta do is create 1 Killer Course that applies generally. Then you can resell allll materials for it to others with a commercial private label right attached for the buyers' right to use this course as part of their paid course with their own customized branding. The term in business is called "white labeling"! Just be careful if you use this content to customize the content so it doesn't get called low-quality content on the internet. So happy White Labeling!

Activate Your Calling : Do It Scared
This episode is about more than just what you can do for your business. This episode is meant to encourage aspiring law students and take on a very very important protection for your business: Trademarks. Nothing is capable of standing if you are too afraid to launch the very ideas that you have been dreaming about thanks to being in quarantine. Don't keep your dreams under a rock. Take action for the next month and just try to run your own business as a sole proprietorship, and tell me if you end up the making at least $1 during that period.

I Miss You Dad: Family Law and Lost Loved Ones
Hello everyone, father's day is approaching and thanks to some amazing people who checked on me when I dropped my 💜💙 hearts for the mental health check in, I finally have the courage to share with you all something that's been weighing on me since last year that I haven't shared more publicly yet. My father passed away last September 2019. It was the most devastating loss I've faced in my legal career, & I know there are more ppl who need a space to share the pain that comes with losing a parent so I'm gonna share and hopes it helps someone RELEASE today. My dad, the first basketball team with UAB blazers, drafted by the Denver nuggets, played overseas, was a present force my entire child and adulthood, helped with all my school projects, firm but fair, loved my mom so deeply and intensely that I knew that God crafted him special, made a friend wherever he went, carried himself with respect for others always & tried hard not to judge unless to make us better. I miss him! I have so much more to write.. Enjoy your time today. Call your parents and loved ones often and cherish every second. I know I did! Love y'all much!!
