When my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I knew immediately. No, not jewelry or technology gadgets (though those would have been accepted readily). I asked for a trademark.
With as much time and effort as I've put into this site, I don't want anyone ripping me off! Now, I can't trademark the actual act of analyzing characters, as there are a few sites that do this (although I want to point out that I'm 99.9% positive that I started the write-in process for this). But now there is paperwork in place that will forever prevent anyone else from ever using the name of calling themselves The Character Therapist!
Check it out:
How cool is that? Did you notice that little booger at the top of the page? [Go ahead and scroll back up there....I can wait.]
For the low, low cost of $500, you, too, can be the owner of a trademark for your website or brand! I went through LegalZoom, and have been very pleased with their professionalism. If there are those of you out there interested in the process, indicate that below and I'll be happy to do a post or two on how this momentous occasion came to pass.
For now, celebrate with me!!
