Hi everyone, my name is J.D. Houvener, and I’m happy to be with you here today. This is a special series about our frequently asked questions that we get from a lot of our prospective clients, and even current clients, as they kind of come back around and come up with new inventions, or have different things they’re working on as their case proceeds, and so this week and the next few weeks, I want to take this time to share with you some really brief answers, some really nice, hard-hitting answers, to those questions that we get right out of the gate, from people just like you.

And so, what I want to do this week is kind of do something a little different. I want to request anyone watching this video to please pay it forward, and to please help the audience here with those burning questions that maybe I don’t even cover in this series. So if you’ve thought of questions about patents, about innovation, trade secrets, you know, related to your technology, that have just been troubling you, or you haven’t really felt like you got a really clear footing or understanding about, ask those questions in the comments below. I want to be able to get to them and address you personally, to make sure that we take care of you, make sure we answer those questions.

One of the interesting ways to be able to do that is to say, okay, would I be able to–right, talking about you, would you be able to explain what you’re going through, you know, the patent process, to someone that you know? And so, if that would be tough for you in any way, tell us about that. Right, what’s hard, what’s difficult to explain, and I will try to break it down in this next Bold Today Show series.

So that’s what this is all about, I’m going to be doing perhaps four weeks of frequently asked questions, I’m going to be referring a lot to the book that we’re giving away for free still on our website, Bold Ideas: The Inventor’s Guide to Patents. I’m the author of that book, it’s put through my knowledge bank of what I’ve gained over the past five-plus years of being a patent attorney, and working with clients and getting all of their questions. I’ve got my answers in this book.

And so we’re going to be covering a lot of them in the next four weeks together, and hopefully this will be a great journey for us to work together and get closer to answering those questions that you do have. So again, if you know anybody out there that is thinking about inventing, or is an inventor, a cousin, a relative, a brother, a mother, a father–please forward this email to them. Send the Youtube link to them so they can subscribe and become a part of becoming a bold inventor. And so we can get the word out about what it takes to move the invention into a patent.

Alright everyone, have a wonderful day. I’m your host, J.D. Houvener, of the Bold Today Show. Go big. Go bold.
