Beware of Trademark “Help”

By |2018-01-11T22:37:08-07:00January 11th, 2018|Intellectual Property (IP), Marketing|Comments Off on Beware of Trademark “Help”

In the early stages of my product, I used Legal Zoom to help with both trademarks and patents.  Now I have a dedicated IP attorney. In a future post I will talk about the pros and cons of both.  But regardless of the method I chose, I always received what I consider 'spam' letters in [...]

The “Short” Stack

By |2018-01-04T10:49:15-07:00January 3rd, 2018|WooCommerce, Wordpress, Avada Theme, Plugins|Comments Off on The “Short” Stack

When people talk about the 'stack', generally they are referring to the back-end tech that powers a particular application.  Could be any application, but in the case of this blog I am referring to the back-end that powers the eCommerce sites I create. In the spirit of bootstrapping, it should come as no surprise that [...]

How to bring a brand new product to market

By |2018-01-02T17:49:52-07:00January 2nd, 2018|Marketing, Intellectual Property (IP), WooCommerce|Comments Off on How to bring a brand new product to market

New direction on the blog. I'll keep some of the old posts up, but moving forward I will be dedicating this blog to my passion - bringing a product to market with a boot-strap mentality. Without some background on why I can or should talk about this, you should ask why I can write [...]

Fun & Games

By |2018-01-01T12:44:32-07:00February 24th, 2014|Being Handicapped|Comments Off on Fun & Games

Some people think that having one hand/being handicapped is all fun and games. And well, that's because it is. I was sharing some stories the other day about growing up with the stump, and I couldn't think of a reason to not post some stories here. Your entertainment may vary. Ring the Liberty Bell In [...]

Sportsmanship, is it alive or dead?

By |2018-01-01T12:49:27-07:00February 9th, 2014|Everything Else...|Comments Off on Sportsmanship, is it alive or dead?

Two stories caught my eye this weekend, and they represent opposite sides of the spectrum as far as class. The first one comes courtesy of the Texas Tech / Oklahoma State basketball game on Saturday night. I would think that even if you are not a sports fan you would have heard about the incident, [...]

Teenage Plastic Surgery – Dateline NBC

By |2018-01-01T12:55:51-07:00January 5th, 2014|Being Handicapped|Comments Off on Teenage Plastic Surgery – Dateline NBC

Tonight I watched the Dateline NBC segment about teenage plastic surgery with a lot of interest.  I will not comment directly on the children who were the subjects. However, I do have experience with the subject as they described it - being born a little different than most people.   I realize that being born [...]

By |2018-01-01T12:58:39-07:00December 16th, 2013|Everything Else...|Comments Off on Remembering Tom Laughlin & The Trial of Billy Jack

Yesterday was a sad day for myself and all fans of Billy Jack. It was announced that Tom Laughlin, the man brought Billy Jack to life, passed away. He actually passed away on Thursday, December 12, although it wasn't made public until yesterday. He was 82. For those fans that have not seen the homepage [...]

Disneyland and the People Who Get “Cuts”

By |2018-01-01T13:05:31-07:00December 8th, 2013|Being Handicapped, Everything Else...|Comments Off on Disneyland and the People Who Get “Cuts”

Our recent trip to Disneyland was a lot of fun. We got Brianna on a plane for the first time - along with a couple of rides she wouldn't get near not that long ago, i.e., Tower of Terror.  We walked a lot, talked a lot, rested a lot and ate a lot.  Sabrina and [...]

5 Great One-Punch Knock Outs

By |2018-01-01T13:08:34-07:00May 31st, 2013|Everything Else...|Comments Off on 5 Great One-Punch Knock Outs

After I realized Juan Manuel Marquez didn't seriously harm (or kill) Manny Pacquiao in their fight last December, I started to think about where the knockout I witnessed belongs in boxing history. For absolute fear of what I thought I just wached, there are not any KO's that compare.  But being a boxing fan, I thought [...]
