Still Trying to DIY your Trademark Application Filing?

Posted by Invention101 on November 27, 2020 in Welcome to All About Inventing! |

So, I have been so busy correcting mistakes! None of you should be Do-It-Yourself-ing (DIYing) your trademark applications. Here’s why! Most people do not understand the trademark application process, they don’t understand the protection they have when they secure a federal trademark, and they are unsure of how to enforce and police their trademarks.


What’s the top reason most people don’t hire an attorney to file their trademark application?  LACK OF FUNDS!  However, it may be wiser to save money to ensure the application is filed correctly, rather than gambling to secure trademark rights on your own!  The attorneys at the United States Patent and Trademark Office are not your attorneys. They are very helpful, but it’s not their job to teach you how to navigate the system.

Remember:  A trademark application is a legal document.

Ignorance of the law is not an excuse.


Why do you think trademark applicants should hire a qualified trademark attorney?

We’re Using Technology to Connect With You! #socialmedia

Posted by Invention101 on November 25, 2020 in Welcome to All About Inventing! |

I’m constantly looking for new ways to stay connected with you! I know many of you already follow me on social media and I appreciate it!

Is there a platform that I’m missing? Would you like to see me on a tool I may not be aware of?

There are so many options these days, right? Honestly, I equally love them all!

Here’s where to reach me online. Can I get a LIKE ;-).


1. Facebook

I go live on video using our Facebook business page and I’m considering creating a FB group. Would you be interested in joining it?

2. Instagram

I love showing off pictures of our business life on Instagram. I’m human…so you may even catch a glimpse of my family or something happening in my personal life I think you would enjoy! What do you think? HERE is my page!

3. Periscope

I love Periscope! It’s like having my own television show. I’ve even trended on Periscope TWICE! Check out some of my videos here!


Question: What social media outlets do you love, and which ones would you like to see me use more to connect with you better?



#Law Students: 6 Tips to Advance in Your Career! #lawyer #lawschool #attorney @boss_squire

Posted by Invention101 on November 16, 2020 in Law Student Tips |

Law students,
It’s SUMMER! You have survived another year of law school. Congratulations! Have you thought about your career after law school? It’s never too early to start strategizing on actually having a career rather than a job. The competition is stiff. What are you doing to distinguish yourself from other students? Here are a few tips that will help you to advance in your career.

1. First, be open to alternative careers. You’re still a student. Take advantage of all opportunities. Don’t limit yourself. Now is the time to explore all options.
2. Attend your law school networking events and follow up with attorneys. Create a database to store all contact information of the attorneys you meet. You never know when you’ll need to send out a newsletter or an email.
3. Create a blog to get your name out. Analyze cases! Distinguish yourself! The internet has provided an opportunity for you to create your own brand. Take advantage of it. If you’re interested in trademark law, for example, create a blog with niche trademark information.
4. Use social media. (Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin). How will anyone know what you’re capable of if they don’t know you? Social media is a great tool to create a global brand and to grow your followers and supporters.
5. Research jobs and attorney you are interviewing with. Be prepared. Don’t waste their time. The worse thing you can do in an interview is ask questions where the answers can easily be found on the Firm’s site. For example, don’t ask an attorney where they attended law school. Rather, relate their law school to something personal to let them know you did your homework!
6. In an interview, ask intelligent questions to show you’ve done your research, not just “How much will you pay?” Talk about a big case the firm won or a current event.

Remember, your career research should be career focused not job focused. There’s a huge difference.
Time is valuable and irreplaceable so it is important to spend time doing things you love, including working. Happy CAREER hunting!


What’s the best advice you’ve received that has advanced your career?

I’ve Improved Something…Now What? #invent #inventors #invention #patent

Posted by Invention101 on November 8, 2020 in Welcome to All About Inventing! |

How exciting?  You’re minding your own business and then, it hits you!  Your “aha” moment.  I’m referring to that moment when you realize that you’ve come up with a better way to do something.  You have figured out a way to make it easier!  Great!

Then, you call your favorite patent attorney to tell me the news :-).  You ask, “Andrea, I’ve improved something, now what?”  First, we need to determine if your invention is patentable.  Is your improvement useful?  Is it novel?  Is it non-obvious?  Conduct a patent search using the USPTO database or free tools like Google Patents.  If you find an exact version of your invention, you know it’s not patentable.  However, seek the help of a professional to help you to interpret if your invention is non-obvious.  Your consultation will be more effective if you bring references of interest to discuss.

Your improvement may be patentable. Maybe your improvement is the next big thing!
