Benefits of Trademarks

June 10, 2015

Your brand is your identity and an important part of your marketing strategy. Having a federally registered trademark increases your credibility in your market, and enables you to prevent others from using your mark or a mark similar to yours in a manner that could harm your business.  The Benefits of Trademark Registration are:

  • Federally registered trademarks are protected throughout the United States rather than in one state.
  • Federal registration provides evidence that you own your trademark.  If you ever sue someone for trademark infringement, this fact will save you a great deal of time and legal fees.
  • You will be able to file suit in federal court rather than state court.
  • As an owner of a federally registered trademark, you are entitled to “treble damages”, which means you can recover three times your actual damages from the trademark infringer.
  • You may also be able to recover any profits that the defendant earned while infringing your trademark, as well as any attorneys fees you incur during litigation.
  • Federal registration provides nationwide “constructive notice” to others that the registered trademark belongs to you. If your trademark is infringed, the infringer cannot defend his conduct by arguing he did not know about your trademark.
  • After five years, federally registered trademarks become “incontestable”.  That is, your exclusive right to use the trademark is conclusively established, making it extremely difficult for another party to challenge your trademark.
  • Your trademark rights can last indefinitely, as long as you comply with the necessary procedures for renewing your trademark.


The process of trademark and design registration doesn’t need to be expensive or confusing. Karmen A. Booker of Compu-Perfect Professional Services can make the registration applications on your behalf, and we can provide full support issues such as:

  • Advice on suitability and registrability of names, logos and designs
  • Searches against intended names and logos and checking on availability
  • Advice on selecting appropriate classes of goods and services for registration

The Power Source for the Kingdom-Minded Entrepreneur

March 7, 2015

The kingdom-minded entrepreneur must study the Word of God to gain knowledge of biblical principles that will transform your life and business.

The Power Source for the Kingdom=minded Entrepreneur is a powerful book that includes 91 biblical scriptures that are designed to impact the kingdom-minded entrepreneur’s business and position you to takeover the marketplace.

God’s Word, when spoken out in faith, waters your seeds. The Word does not return void, but prospers in whatever it is spoken over.

The principle of confessing the Word of God is powerful. The Greek word for “confess” is homologeo, which means to speak the same thing; to agree with; assert; to declare; to profess; to declare openly; to speak out freely.

It is very important to align your words (seeds) with the Word of God because there is power in words. As you water the words (seeds) with the Word of God, you will reap an abundant harvest.

Asset Protection

February 25, 2015

A New Lawsuit is Filed every 30 Seconds!

 An estimated 50,000 lawsuits are filed each day.

If you own a business or practice a profession,

you have 1 in 3 chances of being named a defendant in a lawsuit.

Protect Your Assets by Buying our Step-by-Step ASSET PROTECTION KIT

 How Does Asset Protection Work?

Asset protection is a way of transferring assets into legal structures where your ownership interest is shielded or made invisible or it is turned into a control interest.

Why Do I Need to Protect Assets?

If you lose your assets – your accounts, cash, cars, real estate – you lose your financial lifestyle and security.  You may view your home as nothing more than a house.   Asset protection allows you to maintain your financial lifestyle.  It provides you peace of mind that your nest egg will still be there when you retire and need it.

Putting asset protection into place will protect you from harm and will prevent or discourage lawsuits.  Lawyers get 40% of what they can take from you by way of judgment.  If you have no exposed assets, lawyers and their clients gain no financial advantage by suing you.

Why You Need Corporate Veil Protection

January 3, 2015

Corporations and LLCs are legal entities, separate and distinct form the people who create and own them. (corporate shareholders or LLC members).  One of the principal advantages of forming a corporation or an LLC is that because the corporation or LLC is considered a separate entity, the owners and managers have limited personal liability for the company’s debts.  This means that the people who own and run the corporation or LLC cannot be held personally responsible for the debts of the business.  But, in certain situations, courts can ignore the limited liability status of a corporation or LLC and hold its officers, directors, and shareholders or members personally liable for its debts.  When this happens, it is called piercing the corporate veil.

The Corporate Veil Protection Kit is important to have in order to protect yourself from an individual, creditor, or vendor from piercing the corporate veil and being able to access your personal assets.
If a court pierces a company’s corporate veil, the owners, shareholders, or members of a corporation or LLC can be held personally liable for corporate debts.  This means creditors, can go after the owners’ home, bank account, investments, and other assets to satisfy the corporate debt.  A court might pierce the corporate veil and impose personal liability on officers, directors, shareholders, or members when the following are true:

*  There is no real separation between the company and its owners.  For example, the owner pays personal bills from the business checking account.

*  The company’s actions were wrongful or fraudulent.  If the owner(s) recklessly borrowed and lost money, made business deals knowing the business couldn’t pay the invoices, or otherwise acted recklessly or dishonestly, a court could find financial fraud and pierce the corporate veil.
This is why the Corporate Protection Kit is very important to purchase because it provides forms that are important in maintaining personal asset protection and avoid piercing the corporate veil.
