They are because there are so many teams bunched together. Merkel league is pretty said we will go over all the baseball things with Matt Snyder from CBS sports dot com. MLB insider When he Jumps on board with us. I told you Celtic threw up 15 17 points. They definitely needed this game because they were down to one blew a big lead in game number two. And afterwards. Apparently, there was some pretty good in fighting in the Celtic locker room. It was reported pretty widely there even though there isn't a massive contingent. Of N BA media down there, there was enough to be able to put on the fact that there's a pretty good screaming, yelling buying clothes clubhouse doors after the Celtics were beaten on Thursday night. By Miami and I got to watch that game with my residents. Celtic fan That would be my daughter. My daughter is a bit of a strange bird. God, I love her, but he's got Different sports loyalties like her dad. The Jets are a favorite football team. Like a Philly girl. Growing up, he gravitated to two of Philadelphia's teams. The Phillies are absolutely our favorite baseball team, and he and I were in the stands as fans when the Phillies won the World Series back in 2008. He was a wee tyke of just 13, and she got to see a championship buyer came at a pretty young aides. And got to do so, sitting in the fans with all stands with all the other Philly fans, Um and she's a flyer girl, too, on hockey side. But the Boston Celtic fan Philly. I understand I get even though I wasn't born in Philadelphia, I've become may fold up your native over the last 30 years. She grew up here born here. Been here our whole life gets. I understand because he wanted to go to the game with a father and your father had season tickets to get so she warmed up to the gets, and he'd been a loyal I mean, loyal, Get man. At least I can remember when the Jets won Super Bowl three. I was just a wee lad myself way back then. But yes, it did happen during my lifetime. He has had no Any Rex Ryan got into a couplet FC Campion ship games, But during her lifetime they get have basically been none not good, and she still is loyal to the gets as ever, but she became a Celtic fan in an early age. Their mom border. A Celtic notebook for school and Paul Pierce was on the cover, and he gravitated to them for some reason, and give my daughter a ton of credit card. She's loyal. She becomes a fan of a team and she just doesn't change no matter whether all or friends or against her. Whatever else he's a Celtic fan, So I got the wind again with our entire home Thursday. He had a dentist appointment late afternoon, So she came home and had dinner with me and her mom, and then he and I watch the Celtic came together and they blew a big lead. And both he and I noted, as they were given up to sleep in the fourth quarter. That they were under using Galen Brown. Jason Tatum is the star of the team. They've got a lot of very key components in Temple Walker in market Smart. In jail in Brown, Even Thais places roll tonight. They got back Gordon Hayward or acting injury lift, which is absolutely a key for them, but down the stretch. They just never got the ball in jail in Smith's dance. It was either Jason Tatum missing shots or Kemba Walker. Missing shots or market smart, missing shots and Jalen Brown just he was on the floor, but it became like the forgotten man. And I thought it was a big reason why the Celtic food the game the other night now, the reports out of the locker room there after those that were screaming, the most at each other word, Jalen Brown and Markets fart. Not surprising with markets more because he is the most emotional slash volatile player on the team. But if Galen Brown was airing out a little bit that you guys kind of left me out of the mix lady here, I'II had a ground to stand on. I thought the Celtics handled the late game situations for minutes on end with lead poorly and that they never got one of their best offensive player shot..

New Yorkers Are Fleeing to the Suburbs: ‘The Demand Is Insane’
"In the suburbs is surging. As New Yorkers are fleeing the city Greg David from the news outlet. The city has been following this and joins us now, Greg, what are you seeing in terms of home sales and prices in the suburbs? Well, home sales air certainly up a lot and some prices air up to, according Tio Miller, Samuel Real estate appraisers the suburbs as a whole had a 44% increase in do I and sales compared with a year ago increase in Westchester, 112%. Fairfield County, 73%. And the brokers all say these are New Yorkers seeking to leave the city for more space. Because they fear another pandemic and possibly even because of the shootings and rise in the crime rate. What does this mean for the city's recovery? I guess it would take a bite out of the tax revenues right? It's going to take a bite out of the tax revenues, and it conceivably is going to take a bite out of the city's business community. The more people moved to the suburbs, The more companies are under pressure to let workers work remotely. It's going to be difficult for the recovery. Another big hurdle. You know, there's different groups of people who are buying homes in the suburbs are people. Usually middle class and upper middle class people who were leaving. We also know that many young people have left to go home. We know people with second homes have gone to live in the second homes. Maybe they'll come back. Maybe they won't come back. But it is. It's a really big hurdle. And yes, you're absolutely right. These people pay more taxes than many other people. There have been crises here before people have left than they always seem to come back. What is your sense This time around? Is this short term long term permanent? Perhaps. No one knows the answer to that. But I would say that someone who has covered this story about New York's ups and downs for more than 35 years. I am very worried this time. I think the pandemic And the economic damage from the pandemic could be doing more than temporary harm. I think it's clearly worse than both the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in the aftermath of the financial crisis. How much worse how permanent those air questions I can't answer today. Greg David at the city, Greg. Thank you. Thank you. W CBS

Trump Again Assails Mail-In Voting
"So. We have a new phenomenon. It's called in it's called mail in voting. We you send your. Wall. Terms of of. The kind of millions and millions of ballots never. Because if the pandemic that bigger massively big. Send tens of millions of ballots to California all over the place to WHO's going to get them I have a friend lives in Westchester send applications that his son passed away beautiful wonderful son young man passed away seven years ago he called me said I just got I just got a ballot. Probably Robert Probably died seven years ago somebody got a ballot for a dog somebody gotta balance for something. You got millions of ballots going nobody even knows where they're going. You look at some of the corruption having to do with universal, mail in voting absentee voting is okay. You have to apply you have to go through a process you have to apply the mainly same good. And they're sending out applications. Delon means of ballots an. Applications you. No way you can go through a mail in vote without massive cheating. You know you could have a case where this election will be decided on the evening of November third absolute selection. Two months later, two months. What's wrong with the property mailing cow cited many months later you discussed by because lots of things will happen during that period of time especially when you have tight margins, lots of things can happen. Get the outward visible frustration of the president when you presented him with the facts about absentee voting, he's tried to make this distinction between absentee voting, which he has done himself mail in voting distinction without a difference most experts say, did you walk out of that room Jonathan with the feeling that if he loses the vote on election night or the couple of days after even once the mail in ballots are counted that he would accept the result. I think. You probably see a repetition of what we saw in two, thousand eighteen when in Florida, that's a race that I think people should go back and revisit the how you wanting to see what you think the president might do off the election. So there's a very plausible scenario in which the president is looking very strong on election night because he has convinced his supporters that voting by mail is unsafe he get a lodge in. Vote during pandemic. And some of these states, some of these key battleground states it takes awhile to count them. Pennsylvania's good example, and if you start seeing scenario in which in the days off the election, the in vote starts to come in and it stops to train more and more towards Joe Biden. By suspicion based on previous behavior is that president trump would call for a halt to voting and would try to litigate in in various states so that's where I think this is heading.

Jamaal Bowman unseats veteran Rep. Eliot Engel in New York primary
"Biggest upset of the primary season. So far, Jamal Bowman has unseated New York's long serving Democratic congressmen. Elliott angle. Bowman is a former school principal from the Bronx, and the race was widely seen as a contest between the parties Progressive Wing and the Democratic Old Guard the continuation of the dynamics in two years ago in New York. With the election of Alexandria. Ocasio Cortez. Jamal Bowman is here with me now. Welcome and congratulations. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. So you ran on a progressive platform in one of the bluest district in the country, New York 16th. But now, you know, I want to look ahead with you. Assuming you do end up in Congress, which is what most people are assuming, Let's just talk about how you intend to work with the rest of the Democratic caucus in the House. I want to start with the fact that you ran on Medicare for all. But the presumptive Democratic nominee for President Joe Biden, opposes Medicare for all. So how do you expect Democrats to resolve this issue on health care? A lot of conversation. Ah, lot of dialogue, Lather debate lot of listening a lot of learning on a lot of bridging the gap. I mean, the bottom line is the majority of the American people support Universal health care, a single payer system and Medicare for all, they supported that prior to the culvert pandemic, and now that we are living with in the midst of that pandemic. People supported and higher numbers. But here's the challenge. I mean, more generally. Obviously, this is a general election year. What do you say to the argument that pushing liberal policies during a presidential election year progressive policies? Could alienate voters in swing states and swing district. I don't think they will again when the majority of the American people are surveyed and pulled on this issue, the majority of the people support This particular issue, But beyond Medicare, for all, I mean, how do you make ideas like the green New deal or de funding the police popular in moderate district's? We're living in a different country at this moment, then we were even six or eight months ago. We have over 40 million people out of work as a result of the pandemic, So we need a federal jobs guarantee under the umbrella of a green new deal. We have kids who are losing quality education town because of the pandemic. So we need to fully fund our public schools called it disproportionately impacts. Those were upper respiratory illness as it relates to environmental injustice, So we need to deal with the environmental emergency. All of the things that we've kept swept under the rug for decades are now coming to light. As a longtime educator. What do you think? Is the single most important thing lawmakers Khun do to make life better for black Children? We need to start with a process of truth and reconciliation and really reckoning with our history of racial injustice and the legacy of slavery and how it continues to persist in all of our communities, and as we craft policy and worked together, we have to also look at the implementation of that policy, not from the perspective of a Scarcity, mindset or a zero sum game. This is about collaboration, cooperation and working together the build the country that works for everyone, But can you be specific? Can you talk about one specific policy idea that you would like to push? To get passed through Congress that could actually get past. By a Republican led Senate If the Senate does not flip in 2020 We need to give people back to work first and foremost, when we talk about full over 40 million people who have lost their jobs, their happening in Republican states and districts as well. We need to finally deal with economic inequality in our country. You need to make sure the wealthy pay their fair share and large corporations pay federal taxes so that we can invest in the people of our country. Get people back to work. A lot of comparisons have been drawn between you and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, also a progressive Democrat. What have you learned watching her navigate her first term in office. Is there anything you intend to do differently? Well, I've learned that it's okay to be myself. You know, Congresswoman Ocasio Cortez eyes a tremendous leader. She's brilliant. She's fearless, going against a system of white male supremacy, a cz. She's broken a glass ceiling in that system and created species. For new conversations that center, the working class and those who are most vulnerable. So I've I've learned it's okay to be myself and speak truth to power on the issues that matter, most to the people who have been mostly forgotten.

"I can't make ventilators or masks but I can help. Businesses think through their their marketing. Better during this time. And I can't do that either. Actually my bachelor's in computer science so I could but I can't powerful. Yeah what Nearly twenty years out of date on my My on my coding. All right. So let's talk about this Six theme that you pulled out which future yes really interesting. You know the the last five or six laws in the in the book. Talk about how unpredictable. It is Particularly future is who two months ago? We would have been doing this. Exactly the success. You know how Success leads to Arians arrogance leads to failure and that you know so the law of success. The law of failure. The law of hype Yeah so interesting. There's a lot of these that I think play into especially in in Crisis Times wartimes like this like The law of high for example is usually the way things are are usually opposite of what the press says the way they are which is a little controversial so you can blame outraced a little little controversial yes right would say so You know The logic celebration. Don't build on fads build on build on trends. Which is that's the way they write in the book and there's not enough time to unpack all that I was going to say. What's the difference between a fat trend? That's fascinating I think. I think trends. Stay around the the idea that the Internet was a trend wasn't a fad so focusing on those areas. But it's so hard to tell. How do you tell you between one or the other like cryptocurrency? You Are you a Crypto Fan? Yes and no I. I can see the I can see the potential benefits of Crypto. I certainly have had crypto clients On the same token I'm I'm a little dubious about the average person. Say buying into Crypto as well and and we know the governments don't buy new crypto either. Because they want to treat it as if it's an asset not a currency and and deal with taxation from that particular standpoint so I I'm I'm a fan and yet I'm not a fan if that makes sense. Well your cautious right. You don't know yet. It's a fatter. Trend Man Yeah. I think a lot of people are still on the fad boat but I don't know I. It seems like such a logical move are logical progress of where currency is going so well let me give you another another Fatter trend to kind of thought. Which is which is video on your website. Oh Yeah at trend but certainly it doesn't act the way facebook and twitter made made video seem as if people would would grab onto it like in other words it's important to have audio and video files say on your website that does help with. Seo. But I kind of seemed to think that that that the way social media companies were pushing video. It's it was as if nobody would ever want the written word again. That's that is definitely the extreme. Yeah Okay I don't think we're GONNA get ever get so point where there are no words on websites and it's all video but video is here to stay. You know there are all the stats point in right direction. It's IT increases. Search engine rankings. By Up to twenty to thirty percent increases the time you stay on page two to three X. People are sixty percent more likely to buy from a company if if they have video as part of their sales process so yeah a amazing stats around video. The this the album that you're pulling up from social is really interesting Lincoln is a good example that they were Lincoln's always really late to the game around technology and How they roll things out so they were doing live video pretty late. It was like a year after facebook twitter. And the other the other folks but You know they won't say this but it's absolutely true. People who are using video on Lincoln were just you know their rankings. Were getting shot right. rank there were getting retire because they wanted to promote people who had video right so they wanted to show off you know. They wanted new streams to be full of all these videos and so it works. I mean because they own that of course it worked. They fixed the The system sure So you know is it as Is it as is is their hype. Yes there's absolutely hype around. It is valuable absolutely. I think it's here to stay so so let me ask this. Why did you highlight the the one the themes that you did highlight? Yeah there's there's some obvious ones in here 'cause I go back to your question. Which which ones are highlighted during the time like this and I think there's easy ones like unpredictability. There's hype La Sacrifice you know. I think those are all really obvious. Laws that are That happened in crisis times. But you know the law of category really interesting because in a time like this I I want to highlight that one as a special time where companies can reinvent themselves and invent new products. And you know about that as a as a patent firm we might have been handled a new thing or two in our time. Sure you know the story I like to use. Is You know. Maybe there's a barbecue restaurant that was struggling They have a great fan base. And they've never thought about technology you know they've done things the old way shark and now they're kind of force. Your hand is forced to may be considered doing take out and maybe considered doing selling their barbecue sauce. Right why not sell your barbecue sauce? It's it's easier than ever to do that. And many companies out there could could think along those lines and do similar activities. Right they could. They could digit Fi. They're they're offering in a way That helps them in this time and create new new stuff. Do you think it's as easy as Of saying it is probably not but that doesn't mean that I don't find it to be something that's worthwhile to think about. Let me take the first example that you that you said the barbecue sauce. I think a lot of I think a lot of people who are chefs might create a barbecue sauce for a restaurant but might not understand what it takes to go into retail on a barbecue sauce. Those two those two markets are radically different markets. You also have to think about packaging use after think about food regulations which you know from a restaurant standpoint. You might have cleanliness as one particular part of of the regulations that deal with Labor and employment. But if you start selling food now you have to start thinking about how to brand the food. You also have to think about the nutrition in the in the food. Also think about how you're going to to calculate with the nutrition. Facts are in your food. What a serving sizes a lot of stress probably never thought would a serving size was probably just take the barbecue sauce that they create and slather it but now you have to think about what a serving size is you have to get the chemical breakdown for how many calories shelves that Position Self Stabilization. Exactly so so on one hand yes. I understand completely where you're thinking if I'm a restaurant chef at a restaurant and now it can lead you take out and so my my real estate is Cost of gun have have stayed the same but my income has not. Gee that seems like a very simple way of going from one market to the next so I understand your logic completely. They're just eight hymns there that that you know that restaurant owner has never had to deal with before and it's. It's exactly why I've started this class because I think that I'd the topics that you're talking about are easier than people. Assume it to be right so thinking through branding thinking through Validating your market thinking through packaging thinking through how you're going to sell it Yes there are some technical things that you you still have to go through like getting chef's chef's association labeling nutrition. Sure but there are. There are some cottage laws right where you can sell some absolutely from from a health literally so the food is interesting I I didn't mention this. I have a degree in culinary on top of some other degrees that I I got I got it to To impress a girl and it worked so Yeah but I just think now is the time right you know for for that particular company. you you. We have more time or some people have more time to consider inventing. Something creates a category for themselves. It's a great time event. And that doesn't mean that my you know my questions. Again I'm a cynic Lawyer Maitre cynic you know. That's that's that's that's the line that just means if somebody comes to me and they say I have a new New Invention my first question then is what. Your Business Plan That's what I want to say. I WANNA see your business plan as well and you know if not. I've got many referrals for you to go get business plan as well because once you spend money on on trying to get your invention patented getting your name trademarked getting whatever else. You need protected. We we've got You've got to make money on it. That's a whole other podcasts. Yes it is. I'd love to talk to you about the validity of business plans these days. Because my bachelor's is an entrepreneurship. I wrote six six or seven. Different business plans in school and they they are just so worthless. I could have done other things with my time. I could have actually started businesses. I feel like anyway. So yeah the you know. Some of the things like a category You know a lost singularity. I think is is really interesting. It's a to point out in in this time. In each situation only one move will will produce the most substantial results right so It's basically the PARETO principle the twenty rule and so you know really focusing in on on Kinda one activity Especially during this time when you can mark an mentioned the communication is such a powerful tool today right. Yes I call it I call it the sledgehammer right you can do. You can build a house You know it's an important tool to have while you're building a house and it could break things could break bones right so you can do a lot of damage with this tool so be careful of how you communicate So how you market Being absolutely genuine In in your candor Like Avis right Just real about where you are out there. Those are just some of the rules. I feel like are really powerful. Great BOOKS CHECK IT OUT.

"Right everyone welcome to the law and business podcast with me. Is James Quan from figments? How're you doing James? I'm doing as well as I can be thinking feeling the little cabin fever lately Yeah you know there's that The certainly the groundhog day. Scenario of repetition I just had a great Morning check in huddle with the with the team and Just reminding them to break the repetition to stay sane and that was my tip for this week. I think that's very good good tip for this week and I have to check in with my team as as well But our our team is is split between the East Coast the west coast so I generally don't have like a one team phone call. That makes sense. Yeah so so so James. Tell us a little bit about yourself and a little about figment says as an agency. Yeah happy to so. I run a digital marketing firm. Full Service digital firm called Figments F. I G. M. I. N. T. S. DOT COM and We do storytelling that. Actually Peru's revenue results so Start with brand. Storytelling logo design website design development. Because of course we have to admit this last part where we're actually proven results for clients by setting up digital automation Content creation thought leadership. So we can drive traffic and see real results happen and we actually do some of those calls on behalf of the client. So we're really trying to take as much of that funnel responsibility as possible and I've been running an agency now for. Ads are eighth year. Were about twenty fulltime employees And since figments have started about nine companies. Soma a little serial entrepreneur Have a little some startups in some software companies and subsidiaries? I'm actually just got invited to speak inbound. Not sure if you're familiar with the I am certainly familiar. I'm certainly familiar with okay. I mean everybody. Listening is sure so the inbound. It's the largest marketing conference in the world's It's run by the software tool hub spots. Which is very fast growing It's a hot stock to keep your eye on and Yeah just got invited to speak Which is Flattering one one. One particular question didn't you? You certainly said that your agency helps with thought leadership. We ash is a buzzword. But I'm GonNa have you break it down? What is thought leadership exactly mean? Yeah great question. So this day I only tried to ask the great ones man which have so far so a the thought. Leadership is a principal behinds content marketing where today buyers are more informed than ever because they can go online. Begin research blogs They kid just go to Google and start searching. Well what do I need to know? If I'm going to hire a great patent attorney or what do I need to know if I'm going to hire a great agency And you can find a lot of information. The person Who Kim author that. Great content becomes the authority in that world and so This is the category. We call thought leadership if you can start to author a lot of great content all of a sudden you. Your name gets attached to All this All these great seo content all these ricky words When people are searching for that particular niche that particular item your name starts to keep come up more and more and so you become the thought leader in that category assessor. I just wanted to break out the BUZZWORD. That's that's That's all so funny. It's like You know the curse of knowledge that I don't even think about that as a buzzword anymore. So ingrained in mind as a lawyer trains cynic. So I won't get make I WANNA make sure and also Somebody recently said that I that I I. I take a complex ideas and I break them down so that the average person can understand the well so I I do want to try to break. That is a goal of mine is trying to break things down so that everybody can understand as best as possible because that's not always true so let's talk Let's talk about three particular rules that businesses need to remember while you're this pin pandemic is going on our lockdown is going on our self quarantine is going on however would like to define this right now sure. Yeah so interesting when you gave me this. Prompt to think about You know just so that listeners. Now you came up with this idea. The the rules That are highlighted. And it was interesting the way you phrased it because I don't think a lot of people think about marketing in terms of rules and so I kind of had to go back and do a little bit of research myself like what what would be the rules of around marketing and then I stumbled upon A book that I read Probably ten years ago Called the twenty two immutable laws of marketing by outrageous and checkout which is a classic our rhesus toted for having created the category of marketing positioning which is You know something that we Something many companies use on a daily basis. You know positioning yourself. A competitor so highly. Recommend this book anybody listening It is a classic. It's textbook Marketing Literature. You should absolutely check it out. And what else are you doing? These absolutely be trying to better yourself. And this is great book to pick up but There are twenty two laws. We don't have time to go through all the laws here but there's I've found there's there six themes all go over the six teams to give you a general idea of what the book is about And then I thought it'd be good to kind of highlight you know three or four different laws in the book that I think are really relevant today. I think that's all right absolutely. Let's go let's let's jump right into these six themes that you've that you've thought of so so first one is B. I yeah so in the book The first few laws around leadership category mind perception The general principle here is the authors are encouraging you to be I in a category or to be To be the first one that says something. And if you can't be the first one that invented sugary caffeinated drink you can be the first one that has a sugary caffeinated. Drink that tastes like cherries. I don't know so you can You know there's different ways To be the first in In the consumer's mind so Or You could just be the first in their mind or you can be perceived as the best of the I in in a certain way so I think being I is extremely strong law around marketing. I I would tend to agree with you there you know. One of the things that I find interesting is when I try to Hege keyword not with just a blog post but also with one of my video blog posts and I noticed that the SEO when it goes up with video my video transcript maybe some other notes on. It tends to go up because I might not be the first one on the topic but I might be the first one with video on that topic. Yeah absolutely one hundred percent so that principle Tried and true and it makes sense right. I mean if you you're the first to say something it sounds new and we're all we're all addicted to the new and shiny things out there so I think that's a that's a strong law Second one is to own a word so I'm curious as to. I'm curious as to what that means. Yeah so in the general principle here is that if you're going to do marketing well you can latch onto a single word to try to carry the idea of your brand forward So really interestingly the bigger companies you can That you see out there Really in different categories. Mcdonald's for instance I think they They use the word love. Yes I'm loving it. And they use that worldwide as well. It's the same phrase in every language. Yeah right so Coca Cola happiness right. Yes so they kind of key in on this one for one word when fray one idea and the shorter and more simple it can be a simpler. It can be the better so You know we're we're the average while not just average people even smart people. Aren't that smart. We don't we. Can't you know the you're still probably struggling with how I described figments at the beginning of this but if I said something like You know we make we make it easier to sell things for everybody. I don't know so maybe easy. Easy is the is the key word that I want to try to continue to get into people's mind And I don't have the marketing budget of Coca Cola or try to get happiness or love into people's minds but they do and they've done a great job you know they've When you think about you know Mcdonalds bought a BUBBA. You know that was the really poor in this. Let me do all right there. You go you got yeah. O'neal word focus exclusively You know if somebody else has that word. Well it's it's hard to compete so you have to find your own word and I found a lot of professional struggle at that. You know when we do When when we do Networking meetings when we do events. I'm always finding that professionals. Can't seem to get that simple idea out of their vows that that they want to take seventy seconds to describe what they do and really. You should be able to do that very simply very easily. Maybe not in a word but you should be able to do it. Very simply uneasily. Yeah absolutely YEP The third one here is the third. Category Grouping together is Something I call the run matters so in the book the authors talk about how it is a it is a competition. It's a race right where you know there is a best in class. And then there's a second best in class and there's you know and then so on So you have to understand where you are on the ladder. You have to understand that Eventually it'll always become a two-horse race so the you know the The categories that have been around the longest like sugary drinks. Right coke and Pepsi. Yeah there are other players but nobody has the market. Share that coke and Pepsi have there. There's always going to be a two-horse race You know the idea that's If you're not the first on the ladder you can use. Whoever is the first And combat their weaknesses or say that their weaknesses are. Your strengths are. Your strengths are their weaknesses. It's and then Yeah and then. The category is going to become divided. it's always going to become divided So you know you need to plant your feet on the ground and and try to own the own that word be the leader you know So yeah I really interesting Principle here And I have a little story that I think Scherzer's really well If you've been around in the I think it was the seventies Avis did a really great Campaign Avis. The car rental company. George they did a campaign that said we're second where the second best and the campaign. The commercial was basically well. Since we're second-best our lines are shorter and You know we're not going to hassle you and we know we have to compete for your dollar at the end of the day. We know we need to work harder. So Choose Avis and it worked incredibly. Well it was like a great campaign. I I'm I'm kind of thinking here with run matters. Does that does that. Include the customers or clients that that accompany services because as you supposedly as you move up the wrong maybe your clientele moves up the wrong with you. Yeah really great point and it depends on the category. It depends on course you know the competition themselves. I mean some Enron was at the top of the wrong collect some of those clients so yeah I think it's it absolutely changes at absolute DABS and Your marketing strategy has to adapt with it. So if you were if Abe is awesome became number one you're going to drop that campaign pretty quick yes. So there's there's definitely a shift. There's always a a flexibility that you need to. Have you know running the marketing? I completely agree with you on that. And the next the next principle that you have is called the long haul. Yeah it's It's the idea that there is no single marketing effort that happens in In an isolated way Every company is in it for the long haul and so If you're going to do marketing well you need to think about how that particular.

G. G. N. I. G. M. antibody against this organism and the new blood test is telling us whether or not a person was exposed if there's no I. G. G. R. I G. M. antibody there they weren't exposed if I. Gigi and I Jim are positive that means it's an active recent exposure if I. G. G. is positive and I GM is negative that means that they were exposed and the virus is not multiplying or growing now so that's what's been spoken about right now when it when they give blood I had to three units of blood do they have you know how is that what is in the blood today is transferred in other words don't they usually break the blood down to service people with particular well she's lost blood they'll give you blood sometimes they give platelets some tied this plasma but they're filtering the blood to make sure there are no infections and it when you get a transfusion why did you get a transfusion I had a surgical procedure and on the way it could be you know and when they trance transit is me I am I hemorrhaged okay they immediately sent me to the hospital and they gave me three units of blood and I was curious and what do you say how they separate the blood for people who need it and fix it so I I've heard that that's what they do many times they take the blood and they analyze it for certain illnesses or diseases yeah there's so much that they can do with that blood I mean now they're doing research on taking the blood of people who are co good positive and got over it and using it extracting those antibodies to give to people to try to help to kill it so yeah that idea it's been around for a long time so for a person is exposed to cover doesn't get sick this is immune response is great and he has antibodies that have killed it they're trying to extract those antibodies and then use that as a treatment for people that are sick almost sort of like gamma globulin where gamma globulin is made from a person's immune response and then you know purified and then given as a shot or intravenous to other people to shut down from a Tory cascade or get her mean system stronger so yeah there are emerging therapies that appear to be working very well thank you so much for your call phone lines are open if you'd like to call it don't wait for the end of the program to get a few more minutes to chat let's go to Lauren in New Jersey how are you contact your county how are you great current country I'd like to know what your thoughts are and aren't on nutritional yeast use of nutritional yeast forgetting B. vitamins naturally well some people are allergic to and have issues with you so it's hard to utilize that you know Malcolm recommendation for people that have the allergy to it we can test for that all the time there are people who like to use that for a source of nutrition which I think may be fine but all depends on your blood test you know this is what you'll hear me say every day every call every chapter in the office because if you're taking nutritional yeast in your checking all of your vitamins and minerals you may think the trim levels get bigger but they may not be for some people use related things affect your gut so they're not able to take them because that can cause inflammation and then inflammation prevents absorption of your vitamins think of your gut as a very long tube and it's got multiple openings in the lining of the tube and the lining of the intestine has you know folds to increase surface area so that hopefully when you're eating a food or taking a vitamin your digestive enzymes are breaking down the food or the vitamin into its tiniest particle hopefully gets through the membrane into your blood vessels little blood vessels that wrap around the lining of your intestine and get into your big blood vessels and get sent to love your body but there a lot of steps that have to occur for that to happen supported problem is if you're not making digestive enzymes as you get older you're not breaking things down to the tiniest size so don't get absorbed if you have allergy inflammation the

"Hi I'm Anthony. Vernon managing partner Vernal law where our team focuses on intellectual property in Advertising Law? So we're starting at the beginning of Patent Law for this series that matches up at the Faq's on our website. Let's start at the beginning because it's very good place to start. What is a patent well? A patent is granted protection for an invention. I want you to think about a patent as a contract right. The government give you a grant to protect your invention. You have to tell the government effectively the public. What your invention. It's that grant by the US patent and Trademark Office depending on the type of patent. That's granted could last between fifteen and twenty years. Not Understand that this doesn't allow you to sell your product. You're always allowed to sell your product. Even if you don't WanNa get a pat on it you can sell it. What the patent grants you is the ability to stop others for copying your The invention in your patent from selling the invention in your hat. That's the key with patent law. It's a fifteen to twenty year monopoly. On what's described in the patent. Now we have three types of patents here in the United States utility patents. A utility patent covers anyone who invents a new and useful process a new unuseful article of manufacture a newer useful Scene or composition of matter. Also anything that improves upon any of that will also qualify as a utility patent. We always say build a better mousetrap. Well that's what a utility patent is. Also there are design patents now in other countries we might have other definitions for that. But in the United States a design patent includes original new an ornamental design for a manufactured product. That's the key. It's just design. Also the third type of pattern that you can receive our plant patents. That's right if you're a DNA engineer. Yeah I know there aren't a lot of out there but if you're engineering DNA and you create a new plant or you cross read you cross a hybrid plance. Well that'll be a new plant production. Discover invention of a new kind of plant capable of reproduction. You'll get a plant patent. So that's the basic overview of what a patent is again. I'm Anthony Vernon managing partner. Verna law you can find us at vernal dot com and I'll see you for the next part of our Faq.

"Several years ago I had a client who Well did something that you shouldn't do once. The company went into bankruptcy number one. The trademark was not actually listed on the set of assets that the company hat all registered trademarks should be on this set of assets wants a company goes into bankruptcy whenever chapter is being filed number. Two once that company went into bankruptcy the trademarks were transferred to the wives of the business owners. Are we call that a fraudulent transfer because the wives aren't actually running the business also number three? There was an agreement. One of the creditors of the company had a the ability to take the assets of any particular part of the company. And of course sell it in order to get money back so therefore at the end of the bankruptcy none of the debt was discharged. And I'm coming from the other end looking at it as well. What can what can happen if somebody senior to that particular company comes around in Trademark? Use An calls. It trademark infringement. Which is exactly what happened in. Today's tough times for economic activity. We need to keep this in mind. Trademarks aren't specifically mentioned in the bankruptcy code and therefore there are some special. They work differently than other types of intellectual property but we do need to remember their assets of a company so registered trademark need to be listed on the asset sheet when a company files bankruptcy and two if those trademarks are subject to any other agreement that the company has there can be treated with the same type of of property rights that any creditor would have for any other piece of property in that particular business trademarks are treated special when there's a license agreement and that that's a topic for another time apart from that their assets of the business treat them like they're the assets of the business and therefore if your company goes into bankruptcy during this particularly tough five they can be adjudicated properly just like every other acid business.

"Welcome to the law and business. Podcast the least creatively named podcast out there in podcast land with me. Jim Fraleigh in just fantastic. I love being on such a creatively titled Show. Thank you very much and give your from from bellwether where you do a lot of business and executive coaching. Yeah we do We work a lot with Senior executives teams and organizations and then we work a lot with with small businesses on their strategic direction. And figuring out what it is that they want to do to to get to the next level. Excellent will thank you for for for being on an end for all of you out there who have forgotten what podcast you're listening to. I'm Anthony Vernon managing partner VERNA law and so so JEB. A lot of businesses of course are adjusting to the current new normal. I hesitate a little bit to call it anything more than the current new normal. Because I think we'll get back to normal at some point even if it's in three or four months. I think we'll get back to normal. But maybe that's my positive thinking well active. Let's true as well. It's GonNa be interesting to see what that normal actually is. That's true as well so so from a coaching standpoint. What are some of the some of the steps? What are some of the hot button items? That that your your clients are coming to you about right now. A lot of the small business owners especially the ones who are sole proprietors They're they're probably freaking out in panicking right incredibly For good reason right Proprietors can't file for unemployment Mo- sole proprietors This is their sole income for their family And business has just dried up overnight for a lot of other than other businesses are completely overwhelmed with the type of work. So it's really dependent on the type of business that you're in and where you're shaking out on it So cash flow is obviously one of the big challenges that that most of them are are focused on of course But the other one that they're really interested in and the one that I like to talk to most of my clients bow is remaining relevant. And it's a lot of the one of the big tokens of advice. I give to my clients while you may not have revenue coming in. There is still an opportunity to not be forgotten from a business perspective so we WanNa make sure that you'll people's attention is everywhere right now And how do you put your service and Product Front and Center It's probably just noise at this point. So how do you do it and you have to do it in a selfless way where you're not trying to sell something we speak aren't really buying anything? So how are you positioning your business to provide value for your clients So that you are remembered when these things do get back to normal. It's it's a little reminiscent of the advertising Mantra of needing to you know needing to advertise in good times is important. Well at meeting advertise in bad times is twice as that's right. That's right and look if if I'm buying your product I have so many things going across my desk right now. I'm not paying attention to pitch and so advertising it and and being specific and intentional in the way that you're communicating your value. You're not selling people right now but your advertising and showcasing your value and there's a bit of nuance in how you do that So so I mean. I'm inundated with emails all the time about people trying to give me a discount. I'll tell you this and I I'm not I'm not interested in what you're selling right now But we have to create the at work and showcase value for people So that they're going to be calling you when when the revenue the till's open up a little bit later. Yeah I mean I feel as if the two emails I'm currently being inundated with as a as a consumer are well. Here's how our company is Is Adjusting to the Kobe. Nineteen a pandemic way for the most part. I don't actually care about how your company is adjusting. Because I'm kind of assuming well you told your employees to go home and work from home and they're probably employees that you know if you're a bigger company employees you can't have ideally we have business continuity processes in place so that everybody should be working riding service and to if you're if you're a product that I like we'll chances are. I'm if I'm able to order you. Well that hasn't changed that much either and and hopefully it comes to me in well. There are so many people in between when I bought it and my house. That what you've done it your places and all that doesn't matter all that much when it gets to our house so I'm I'm not. Yeah a lot of these these emails about right now Feel IRRELEVANT YEAH. There are and and you said it perfectly. You're they're already using it or you know you're gonNA You know you're GONNA use it in the future like the the relationships already there and so you've got it so if you're trying to build business right now with new people trying to get someone to focus on you to try and build up new businesses as the pine sky. It's very difficult thing to do. Sure let me Let me analogize this with myself. Because I do that way. Too often but He did a video blog About the fact that the intellectual property system is open so my messaging from the very beginning has been hi. We're open because the courts while you might not be able to walk into a court if your client of ours your deadlines all apply and whether that court is a Federal District Court or others in the patent and trademark office or whether your application is in the patent trademark office Everybody's working remotely and our system is still running so you can't really turtle and hide right now if you're one of our clients for example that's kind of been my steady message messaging to them and it's an important message to give because you've got you know we're so focused on isolating and our houses and our particular situation and You Know How am I going to work from home? I've got kids running around the House and I've got you know deliverables to give to everything and we're so focused on us. There is a big picture and when you take a step back from a macro perspective yet. The economy is slowing down but lots of businesses are still going on. Lots of people are still working So there are still deadlines. There are still things that need to get done and things that will get on. The world is going on We just need to look past. Our twitter feeds in order to see that I appreciate the knock at twitter right there on facebook man. It's going to be even a wild wild. The small business is is hunkering down his dealing with kids at home What are some of the? What are some of the thoughts and ideas to keep that business not just front of mine in in in in their clients and customers spent but how to keep that rolling how to keep the how to keep the business owners focus rolling? Yes it's This is new for a lot of people to be working from home and so Just thinking back to my experience when I first started working from a few years ago One of my biggest challenges wasn't necessarily productivity. Wasn't really you know. I'm not a T. V. Person or anything could focus on my work. My challenge was lack of social interaction. Okay Which is a big challenge for everybody right now because we are So while we need you. Work gives us a lot of things. Yes it gives us a paycheck. Work gives us a sense of purpose. It gives us these micro interactions when we're community into the office. We talked to people in the kitchen or we have our in person meanings. It gives us a time. Management and routine so work really provides a lot of different things that we need to re incorporate into our lives at home and the most important of those in my opinion is social micro and our actions so if you have the ability to go out for a walk if you have the ability to say hi to a few neighbors keep pretend feet whatever you have to do We need to remember that. Were part of something bigger and we can't just do that. The Rubio Screen So so the big things for for everybody is To to focus on that mental health focused on on depressions a very real thing But create that routine create the micro interactions and force yourself to get outside a little bit Just to get that type of interaction. It is funny. How many Work Friends. I made like when I first moved to to New York City From philly and my friends were at I for the most part work friends. And so just funny with you talking about the social interactions that make makes me reflect upon the fact that hey when I did work at bigger firms I had worked friends and right now I mean. Obviously my team are friends of mine It works it works in that direction. I have other people affiliated with the firm that are friends of mine but It is it still isn't quite the same because obviously I'm not running into them everyday anyway. It's not like we sit around that at at the copy machine are or or just the walking around the office or the the jokes that I had I I. I did a lot of a lot of eagles. Giants football jokes. You know when I was working at big firms so one right side to be on that equation by the way not the giants. I'm it's interesting. Most of your work friends is because most of your life is work. You Work Eight to ten twelve hours a day So that's your your forty two to sixty hours a week and on top of that. Your hour commute each way. It's another ten hours and you're looking at like fifty to ninety hours a week That you have to fill up and so that's where you're spending. Most of your time is where you're meeting most of the people we've just put everybody at home you've gained effectively. If don't know what everyone's commute is but if you work commute to the city let's say it's an hour door to door You've just gained two hours in your day that you have to fill up and the question is how are you going to fill? It are filling it with work. Or are you filling it with what you need personally to get through your day to make yourself more productive? Is it a walk with you? Know just a half hour walk for social interaction or whatever. It is the kind of check out. My sister in law used to Travel from here in Westchester. All the way down to lower Manhattan. So that that was multiple train rides in a couple of times. I would run into her going home. 'cause I was never getting the five fifty eight train into New York City though the way she yet now but there will be times when I ran into her going home and I would wind up saying hi to her commute. Fred's like like it was a fascinating phenomenon that I had never had before was the commute friend. No look at you know the five fifty a train Or any of the early transit I take in the morning For my stop. Is these people their pockets of people. I know some people get on in the scarsdale train station and they come with A. I don't know what game they play. But they set up a board among the four of them and they play these this board game..
"I'm doing well. Thank you for having me on your show. Hey not not not a problem. It's the least showy show in all of podcast world. So it's also the least creatively titled Show All podcast Villas. Well guess right to the point so innovation advertising is a what I would define as a as an advertising placement agency. How am I doing? That's correct yeah. Yeah okay. Specialize in media buying and media planning. We don't do the creative in house but we can certainly advise clients who've advertising strategy work with the creative team to make the messages best and most effective as it can possibly be but our internal specialty is negotiating meteorites and placing the media for clients determining where they should be advertising to see an investment or return on their investment writer. So in in a time like this I would assume that everybody's first instinct is to especially those who are running. Businesses is to stop their advertising. Yes there are that is usually the first thing when panic kits people always think of advertising as something that's not really a necessity depending on the type of business. You're in that actually could be true or it. Most of the time actually isn't so yes. It's a sometimes is one of the first things to get caught in a recession. How have you been seeing that over the last two to three weeks We have it just. Depends on the industry There are certain businesses that are struggling right now and there are certain businesses that are actually thriving right now Some of the clients that we work with that were seeing the had to make cuts are particularly in retail plastic surgery Salons restaurants events in particular sure And Automotive and anything in the luxury sector as well travel. But we don't work with a lot of entertainment clients but we have seen a lot of people. Shying away to from Broadway shows. They can't go to movie theaters anymore. So TV productions have been on hold so we are seeing that however There are some businesses that are actually thriving in this type of environment who we work with like healthcare providers of course lenders and particular Grocery stores accountants auto repairs. Everyone still needs to get their cars repaired and then of course technology companies like zoom. I'm sure are doing phenomenally. Well at this time you know I Speaking of of grocery stores of a couple of the podcast that I listen to or specifically from Philadelphia and one of the grocery store chains there has started advertising for employees and they are blunt to the point in this time of need we have developed a need for more people to come and work for us and I I mean I was really shocked and surprised at how quickly the messaging changed. Yeah I I mean. Messaging is one hundred percent key in this situation. If you are a business it's going to keep advertising It's very important that you tailor your message. So in this in the case you're speaking of what the grocery store they're looking for recruitment at this time that's great They definitely have to get that message out there. But there's other companies that rather than holding back on advertising. All may really need to do is ship their message so like people are. They're taking this as their living in. You know it's uncertain times so they don't WanNa make huge commitment to anything so if you are a business that has the ability to show. Some flexibility like maybe no cancellation fees or some promoted. A risk free opportunity for people so that they don't feel like they're locked in and that they're gonNA spend too much money on something and then not be able to return it or not. Be able to cancel if they need to so definitely tailoring the message at a time like this is critical. What happens when a an advertiser begins to pull back? I know you said that some are thriving. Some are not thriving right about now but the advertisers that are pulling back. I mean logically as somebody who has done advertising from from a legal standpoint of of the contracts and reviews and budgets. I would sit here and say well. If they're not message is not getting out then. It's not they're not advertising. It's not worked right There was actually a lot of benefits to continue with your advertising during a difficult time. Like Sir during a recession Essentially you have this opportunity now to have a leg up on your competition. Your competition might actually be Stopping all of their advertising. So if your front and center to your.
"That's an that's a great question Justin and as one that you'll be hit with a little bit later but you know it's always been the mantra of people I work with and certainly my mantra that As we said in a previous episode if you want to attract the attention of large distributors of you want to attract the attention of other would be licensees than I always suggest you start out by generating a track record yourself with that and saying the limited that I've learned from from this product and the company and the Founder Story to be told there's a narrative round wide this was created and the benefits of doing so and online content. Online sales will probably be as you just said you best mechanism to get started. Yeah there's a website that's already in production at it. It's not a open for the public to see at this particular point only because we are waiting for the first set of orders To come in from our manufacturers so we want to kind of time it properly not get too much head one of the advantages of course of this toy. Is that since? We're talking about children and losing teeth that it's evergreen in children are born every month and they lose teeth every month and so it's not tied to a particular holiday. It's not tied to a particular time of year. It is You know a a kind of evergreen product that's being sold Year round so we have the freedom and the option to kind of introduce the toy to the market. You know from a marketing perspective. The analytic set facebook and instagram provide. You is a gold mine terms of people reporting when they're pregnant having kids to d decades birthdays. You know how the how old they are. You know that a kid around x number of age old is GonNa start losing teeth and you can really refine your marketing and be super targeted to reach them. The NASA group will be working with the news. I think we'll be Scott. Let me what you have a one to twelve model. You mean from from one year to to twelve years old one to twelve years old. I think would be a reasonable thing but I think hey. Here's my first year tooth which still look back on and say no. I want a five year tooth. Put My too thin at his fifth year. When they're getting changed in the mountains getting form you know and as I look at the bear. Did you refuse to go? He's my different things. Come to my mind. What are the other uses other ideas you come up with with the same mechanism? Yes and they I I think there is a slew of that that can go on and it doesn't have to be for kids. I'm thinking Valentine's Day. What is it that you can cleverly do Valentine's with a heart and all that kind of stuff that you're thinking about? How would that work? And what can you put into it? There's a whole bunch of yes there are there are other uses which actually goes back to our previous episode and talking about you know if you want to be a license. Or what are some of those thoughts that you had in there as well? Scott let me let me ask you this. If if a company like this came to you and said they they're looking for vc because they need to fund the purchase orders that are coming in. They've got this grady. Obviously there's a little market traction because of that What are some of the questions that you're asking them in order to help them set up properly? In order to keep growing? The real question is become uses of capital so I would want them because obviously when you raise more money. There's a dilution effect to the current owners. So you really want to think about what is the amount of capital you need to get to the next stage? And and what are those uses going to be at this point? I think it's just was saying is going to be a lot of marketing and sort of sales channels to look at that. You're going to have to build out probably your sales team and look at your different Sort of online apps and things like that where people can sell product and and that would be where you'd want most efficiently work with and and frankly you know until you have some decent traction in the market you're going to get diluted a little bit more but you're going to certainly be able to raise money and and be able to push this to market pretty easily. I would think go ahead Justin. You raise a very good point. I think we touched upon this in the last two episodes which is the need for business planning to understand what to find success Any business young or old has limited has resources that have termination date the not properly used as a startup will who you're working with. They have limited resources with those resources with the.
"Welcome to the seventh episode of our special miniseries with an ESA group. Jim Weta has a going. It's going well. I think we're making great progress. Great Conversation I hope the audience will enjoy some of the points that we're making. I hope so too Barry calls on failing failing better every time we get involved in this area. Thank hand actually. You've got more where I think that we've got a nice length of time to build relationships. Thank you thank you berry. Will Jake's CONNOISSEUR. How's it going know the Great Day?

I'm doing well. Thank you and I am with Harrington Avocado and monk before you ass managing partner Verno Law. So let's talk about a little. Let's talk a little bit. About the plush toy industry will and I have a lots of plush toy experience will you have written one pattern or is it multiple patents lawyer the plush toy you're currently holding nobody can see that you're holding it so crops goes crops? Don't do very well on audio but but you are holding the product. Well the audience can hear him. I ask so..
"Jim Puerta Principal Vanessa Group. How you doing hi. I'm doing well. Thank you very calls on second principle of the growling listening to all this right. I'm glad I'm glad that you are also Jacob. How're you will Justin Dra pootie anything? I'm well thank you and the well dressed Scott Mountain or how you doing. I'm doing well. Thank all right. And for attorney ethics are part of firms. What firm are you with us? I'm with Harrington Akron monk all right and Of course I'm the managing partner Verna Law But again chances are you knew that all right so today. We're GONNA talk a little case study here and Nessa Group had had a client one that I'm familiar with as well that we won't mention it by name but we will just say that their product is a curtain. Tie Back Jim How do I do with describing the product? I I thought all right. The current tie back has a plush cover and on top of that plush cover I would say is a plush figure as well how how am I doing doing well? Good dream kitchen product Now and Basically the plush part of this what makes it attractive is that it's in different animal shapes Again th described very well. Okay so what? We're Jim Berry. Let let's start with you to this company when you met them was having problems. Can you describe? Let's start here a couple of the problems that this company was the first barrel there. There are a bunch of issues that are involved. I don't believe that they were staffed. That carry on what they had there and business. Fifteen years twenty years thirty years. I'm not sure and basically They were evidently happy with where they wear. Then they woke up and said hey you know we got a problem. Well I think a lot of a lot of business owners are like that. You're you're in business for a while and it seems okay. Well that's the problem. That's a big problem. There you know they go to their buddies and talk to them and they know everything and the problem is evidently. They don't all right. So what what would it be another problem? Well could be the problem of whether they make the product or the sample or whatever it is in house out house it depends on getting that. Sounds like a supply chain issue. A supply chain issue. Yeah okay all right. So let's let's let's start. Let's start here when you say that. The company for wasn't existence for ten to fifteen years but not exactly where the business owners wanted. You're talking revenue was short on revenue. So let's start here. Was there a sharp decline in in the revenue? Or was it just. The revenue wasn't good enough. I think they felt that it was comfortable with. They've been in business and revenue amount. Were there at and I think that they ran into a problem And I don't know what It might be okay and they didn't deal with it. Sure so What are Jim? If you'd like to jump in go ahead. What are some of the items that you look at when a company like this has revenue problems From our standpoint we looked at it was the revenue. Problems were amassing. I would I shout. Barry was was the lead on that but the value comment they were starting to create burn rates that they could match against those revenues. They were making decisions that will costing them money. That shouldn't cost them. And then they were. They were backpedaling. Playing not to lose trying to kind of y'all know. Burn out the clock which was not going to help them any. When when you say that this company was creating a burn rate. I mean your in business for fifteen years. How do you suddenly create a burn rate that that that appears? I don't want to say out of nowhere but almost out of nowhere. Well that depends whether or not a product is an in house product completely or they give it to somebody else to make it and ship it to them and somebody has a problem to trailer. Doesn't get in and they needed it because they were running right at the edge it could be just just add to that because there's something that comes up quite frequently. I think a lot of companies when they're making their projections and where they're looking. What their financials are looking like? Everybody has a propensity not to kind of consider those hours at they're putting in. It's almost like funny our said it's not important and all of sudden growth starts. They have Phil's hours with other people now. There's a cost melt. It wasn't there before well. That's because you weren't creating some kind of an estimate what it would cost to replace you. So that's how I say creating a burn rate those sudden you. You're doing things that you have to pay for what you were doing for free thinking. That's the way it was going to go and it's not gonna go that way. It's because eventually catch up to you. That caught up to these guys Berry when you were talking about The the staffing problem is that. Is that what you're talking about that? They were short staffed but then they had to hire why. I think that they weren't showing that much and they didn't have the money possibly. Maybe they did. Maybe they needed to have problems with getting the product made outside even inside and I think that it's it. What Jim is saying is right. It just creeps up on you. Okay so let. Let's talk a little bit about the supply chain. What frustrations existed in in that supply chain? Oh well where do they get the supplies that they have to send it out to a factory to do? Well my first my first thought would be. It's everything's made in China so that would be my first thought that it's made in. China is a not made in China. I didn't finish the sentence back. Everybody knows that in what goes on but you get to the point sometimes in these companies where they say you know we got money that can carry us another week. What do we do. And that's a really big problem for a company. Be because you have to be thinking about the next sale or the next set of sales well whether or not you can pay your bills and You're thrown out by the supplier and that's not fun and I think that they have to maybe periodically look at what's going on in the marketplace so the products to see whether or not that's making progress and their marketing is very important and some of them say we can get some money if we can borrow more money. I have some very specific thoughts about the marketing of this product. Which we'll get to later on Jim Did you see any particular. Let's say corporate governance issues maybe the personalities. Oh No that was also A. It's a prop going in. Most companies own by family members and that combination usually creates their problem but one of the other things that we talk about supply chain. I think the problem with these guys and I think this is a genuine problem for everyone. I can tell you from experience that a lot of times you create you supply chain and you go find your manufacturing spot and all of a sudden you find yourself falling in love with manufacturer because you have a good report. You're on the phone everything else and you stop looking to find that. Am I getting the best price for what I'm doing on my margins wide enough in my getting all the line appear now and I can't absolve it which was happening to these guys so they weren't really going out there and seeing if there was someone else that can produce the same thing and give them a wide gross margin that weren't looking at that they were married to this guy who has taken them under and manufacturers going concerned they're doing okay because they have many clients but yet our client was? The one was getting hurt the most by because it was sitting on very narrow margins and they they couldn't support it so you had to take them to another factory. That's what we would have recommended. Okay well let's let's talk about. Let's talk about the Niche for you and me which is the intellectual property I understand that you were able to file at least one patent on the product. Am I correct on that? No actually the company came to us with issued patents. Okay so everything. Everything is is was already setup for this company to protect the product. Yeah yeah but that wasn't the the issue with the company working with Barry. What we noticed was they weren't exploiting the very claims that were in in the patent itself. Okay so let's go through that. They have they have a protected product. But they're not selling everything that that's claimed in the in the patent. Not only are they not selling everything that or selling the features of what's claimed in the patent. There were potential infringers that were in the marketplace that we're selling product that was very similar to theirs and they didn't use their IP asset. I e the pattern to at least go shut them down. So let's let's take that to the next step when you see a company. That's not protecting their patents. Not Protecting all of the claims that are in them. What's your recommendation to moving into that? Next step it depends on on you know again with my my colleagues it depends on the business you know and and we try not to have people focus so much on the patents as the leading point of the business but the business is the leading point of the business that in the first episode of this series. Well you know that doesn't change because it's true so you know when we took a look at it. The idea was well. Where is the infringement coming from? An Is it worth it to potentially go after these The you know the what we believe to be infringes. Well there's a cost to that you know there's no patent police there's no one that goes in knocks on the door of an infringer and says hey. You got to stop doing that. That's cost that's born by the company. If they were already in trouble in terms of just meeting their business goals the emphasis at the time was to continue to put cash toward that and then we could go after. You know potential infringers at a pattern. I I think that's an important point too to hammer home. Because I think a lot of people see some kind of infringement lawsuit as instant cash and as a way to change their their their business and I think that that you and I and and really everybody at this table has enough experience to know that it's really the opposite that you have to put money and resources into protecting your ip before it's realize let's let's let's put it this way up at has zero value unless there's a product that's making money that it supports so let's do a very simple math without going into the books of the client that we're referring to you know if it takes you know essentially six hundred thousand to one point two million dollars just to bring the case. You're making you know nothing Near that amount of money and then the person that you're going after is probably making even less so we're the economics of pursuing that you know just didn't make sense at that particular point in time the economics and the business suggests let's figure out how to turn ourselves around and make money with our own product. I so what what suggestions did did you have in terms of of helping the revenue and selling the song the product better. Well actually the patent claims came in. You know we're we're very pertinent to that Barry had already determined that the company had he's essentially a cash flow problem and so they need to raise money so looking out into the market in terms of a projection. Not only at their own business operations but just looking at the space in the marketplace that was provided by that claim. A repos pro- Product right but one of the claims in the patent was that the repos product you know what a plush toy sitting on top wasn't really to claim. The claim was the fact that there was a skeleton that was allowed in that clean that was put into that plush toy which you know to that point had never been seen and that's what they were not exploiting understood understood completely Justin Scott. Let me bring bring you guys in for for a hypothetical thought on a situation on on this particular situation. One of my critiques of this Particular Company is that there The the plush side of this is generic animals and I think that they look nice and I think that yes..
