Hi I’m JD Houvener and welcome to the bold today’s show were you the inventor and entrepreneur is your daily dose of inspiration to help you make the world a better place today’s challenge is just four letters long read I know it sounds simple but this is reading and making a real habit of doing so a daily habit if you can reading something to help you keep their information fresh you know as an innovator as an inventor you’re probably got your head down focused on the project that you’re solving and sometimes weeks months or even years go by without you even kind of coming up for air and looking at the technology what’s important is you keep the ideas fresh and to do that you’ve got to read now moving to the next section which is all about patents and innovation would you guessed it we’re still reading read patents read patents because it’s important for you to do the research you need to do your diligence if you’ve got a technology and an innovation in a certain area you’ve got to read patents to understand the language and what you’re going to potentially protect via patent law read the specification look at how the drawings come together and the different structure and items within a patent theory of law today is the abstract the abstract under 37 CFR 1.7 to be defines what an abstract is and it is in every single patent for a utility patent as you’ll see as you begin to read the abstract really conveys to a layperson you know someone of the public what your invention is all about it’s only comprising of 150 words but you’ll see as you began reading these abstracts is that they cover quite a bit and it’s a nice way to get a snapshot into what you’re going to be reading as you go through the patent application here’s what I want you to do is start a started reading group or join a reading group because nothing helps better than having someone else urging you and being an accountability partner when it comes to starting a new thing especially when it comes to reading one way I’ve found a way to do this is through listening right you can listen with you know apps like audible or using your local library app you can listen to books in the car wait working out these are ways you can get inspired so if you like this this session of a bullet today once you share with some of you know that could use a tip thanks for listening to today’s bold today’s show I wish y’all a wonderful day go big go bowl
