Welcome to episode 37th of Dreams Inspire Reality Podcast!

 

Many people start businesses thinking that making and selling products and having a return on investment is enough. There are so many things you need to consider in building a strong business. There are many competitors out there who may have the same product idea as you or worse who might want to steal your creative ideas. Then the question comes up. How do I protect my product ideas, brand and what are my legal rights?

On this new episode of the Dreams Inspire Reality Podcast, we have another amazing guest, Raven Willis. Raven is a business attorney located in Keller, TX and has over 18 years of experience in negotiating, writing, managing, and reviewing over $2 billion in complex business contracts. She specializes in trademarks, crafting written agreements for established businesses, and monitoring and enforcing high-value contracts.

She shares the number one mistake that entrepreneurs make; the importance of registering your trademarks and the negatives of not doing so; and the top three contracts that a business should have.

Moreover, Raven gives advice for entrepreneurs on how to protect their business. Likewise, she gives a recommendation for people and businesses who can't afford to hire a lawyer. “You have to understand what it is that you're signing for, read it thoroughly, and if you don't understand Google it”. Says Raven. To her, the greatest business win is getting several clients that come back because they were happy and she's doing a good job.

“In the long run, your brand trademark can be worth more than the physical assets of your company.”

Thank you so much for listening.
Dream Big, Execute Hard.

Welcome to episode 36th of Dreams Inspire Reality Podcast!

Balancing your business career and your personal life is not easy. Both require much-needed attention and care. However, with our latest guests, they set the business apart from their personal life. They managed to run a successful entrepreneurial journey and a healthy husband and wife relationship.

On this episode of the Dreams Inspire Reality Podcast, we two remarkable guests, power couple Heather and Dino Cummings. Who are the Founders and Creator of Curlkit LLC. It is one of the largest Natural Hair Subscription Services for multi-cultural women with curly hair in America. Since in 2012, CurlKit has featured over 300 brands and has been instrumental in helping many small businesses get exposure to the natural hair community.

Heather and Dino share all the secrets and tips of being successful entrepreneurs. They discuss how they started their subscription-based company. Heather discovered there was a void in the marketplace as far as healthy natural hair products were concerned. Upon noticing this void, the couple decided to take a plunge and start their subscription service for curly hair types. Their aim was to provide products for women who were looking for healthier options to maintain their naturally curly hair texture. Along with hair products, they have provided maintenance and styling information to help their customers' transition and grow healthy hair.

Being a pioneer means investing a ton of effort to learning everything since there was very little information out there. They've encountered a lot of bumps and bruises along the way, but they're persistent. They found their market and the target audience. It took them about three to six months to really start to gain traction. They started from 75 boxes a month to doubling every month thereafter for the first year. Currently, they ship out 12,000 to 13,000 boxes per month.

The couple now lives the life they didn't expect

Thank you so much for listening.
