What Would Sheila Say? // Teaching Licensed + Certified Professionals How to Start and Run a Business with Clarity, Confidence, and Courage (An Original CreativesEd® Podcast)

Feb 10, 2023

In today’s Episode (41), we’re continuing the discussion about intellectual property, and particularly, intellectual property rights related to PATENTS. This is the last major type of intellectual property that we’ll discuss for now, so let’s dig in! If you’re new to the series, you might pop back a couple of episodes to listen after today’s episode.

As I’ve said before - this is not legal advice, and this is NOT exhaustive. This is just the basics - to help you understand the basics - it’s the bare minimum. All of the information you could ever need is on the US Patent and Trademark Office’s website, which I link below the show notes, and there’s also a really informative 45-minute video that I’m linking, too - it’s super fun, you’ll love it. 

My concern is to get introduced to Patents, so you know when you need help, to know when to ask for help, to go to a lawyer and get advice, guidance, and protect yourself. In this episode, I specifically touch on the three types of patents: design patents, utility patents, and plant patents. 

There’s a lot here that I could talk about, but there’s only so much I want to go into right now - we can go deeper in the future. Right now, today, we are focusing on the foundations, and you’ll be happy to know that patents are a lot more straightforward than you think. My purpose is to help you understand the basics of patents, and when you should protect them, as well!

At the end, as always, I leave you with a bit of homework to start taking action today. Y’all ready? Let’s do this!


My mission is to help licensed and certified, service-based professionals figure out exactly what they want, realize it’s 100% within reach, and create a simple, actionable plan that will get them there. I’d love to support you! Here are some ways you can start creating your rich, happy life today!
