Study Success to Accelerate Your Career

Experience is everything. It allows you to win jury trials and close big deals.

Most successful people I know are intentionally spontaneous. They tap into their years of experience without much thought or effort. They know what they’re doing just like the back of their hand, and they give themselves permission to trust the process and just go with it.

But what if you’re new and don’t have much experience? How can you perform like an experienced expert? How can you also embrace the real-time power of being intentionally spontaneous?

The approach I share in this video will help a new lawyer, business owner, and entrepreneur perform like an experienced pro. Just like how I studied the methods and approaches of some of the top trial lawyers when I first started practicing law 35 years ago, you can do the same thing in your occupation and practice.

Study and model success. Put what you learn to use. Doing this will accelerate your wins and make you better than your competition.

How to Handle Client Contracts, Copyrights and Other Intellectual Property Issues

These are IMPORTANT intellectual property legal/business tips everyone doing business online must know. I share 13 different contract terms and provisions, 35 years of litigation and trial experience, and valuable legal intellectual property tips from top legal experts Pete Salsich III, Karima Gulick and Francesca M. Witzburg.

This presentation was originally given during the virtual global AgoraPulse Agency Summit. It’s titled, “How to Handle Client Contracts, Copyrights, and Other Intellectual Property Issues.” You can learn more about AgoraPulse via my brand page here.

I believe that this 40 minute long value-packed presentation includes some of the best tips I’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing from the stage to help online businesses and social media/marketing agencies, protect their business, legal rights and be successful.

During my presentation, I shared the expert advice of three friends including:

Pete Salsich III, Intellectual Property Attorney and Chair of the Entertainment and Media Practice Group at Capes Sokol who answered this question at the 5 minute mark:

“What legal proceedings, equitable relief, and damages should an agency, creator, or brand be aware of or concerned with when it comes to an alleged copyright violation and subsequent litigation?”

Karima Gulick, an Intellectual Property Attorney, Patent Lawyer, Aerospace Engineer, and private pilot who shared her thoughts in response to this question at the 15:50 mark:

“What steps should an agency or creator take to protect the copyright of the content they create?”

Francesca M. Witzburg, an Intellectual Property Lawyer and Partner at Loza & Loza LLP, who answered this question at the 25:36 mark:

“What happens when someone violates your trademark. What are the consequences?”

I am a big fan of AgoraPulse and would like to thank Mike Allton and his talented team for putting on this top-notch and much needed event.
