#Trademark Tuesdays

Some of the lovely women I met. Business Owners!


Trademark Tuesdays! What’s your brand all about?! Besides having the logo, do you pitch your business in the right fashion, do you give back & support your community the way you want it to support you?! Introspective questions! Met some #business owners, start-ups, all asking themselves those questions & more at a recent event.  

The PowerUp competition, organized by the Brooklyn Public Library, held the event at the BKlynCommons. A great space for companies & PowerUp participants to utilize for their #business, & events located on Flatbush. 

You should also look into entering the PowerUp competition to get your business funded, you can win $15,000 & gain valuable financial & marketing skills. I found out about it 14yrs ago when I returned from #lawschool, a law practice was not exactly the right business for this competition but I had other ideas & would tell others to look into entering. So if you have a great idea, don’t wait get started & connect with a community that supports you! 

If you have Intellectual Property questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.

I posted this :


on the day of auction, putting in my two cents about buying a Basquiat…


Strolling pass Christie’s, when Basquiat taps me on the shoulder...


A mogul bought it, alright.  Read this Art Net article to find out more about Yusaku Maezawa, the 40-year-old founder of Contemporary Art Foundation, and Japan’s largest online fashion mall, Zozotown, who bought Basquiat’s work.  Also check out what else was auctioned, from Jeff Koons to Joan Mitchell works.
