Protect Your
Money-Making Assets

Don’t let another day go by without protecting your money making assets.

Tell me if
this sounds familiar ...

You have a genius idea for your business and go full-on into creation mode, skipping all of the mundane legal bits along the way.

And while you don’t want to create a business, signature program, or product and leave it vulnerable to internet thieves, that’s exactly what you do because when it comes down to it, you’ve got to get your vision out and into the world. You’ve got to get it making money.

Aaaand you don’t want your creative energy to be slowed down by filing this or registering that. So you opt to skip the legal bits with the full intention of one day getting it all sorted.

Eek! I totally understand This Approach
but I’ve got to tell you…

I cringe every time I hear a story like this because I know that setting up a brand this way can get dicey for two reasons.

  1. If your brand isn’t protected, people like Thelma the Thief are going to see that as an open invitation, and before long they’ll be passing off all your brand assets—your logo, tagline, signature program name—as their own and there’ll be little you can do about it.
  2. If you skimp on the legal bits and don’t do a thorough search of the name you wanna use, you run the risk of trademark infringement and a hefty fine … cuz how do you know if someone else is using the same name or not? You don’t unless you search it out. That’s why you’ve got to search multiple places (not just Google) in order to verify that your name is free and clear to use.

If this is our first time meeting,
Heyyy …

I’m Nakia Gray

A business and intellectual property attorney for business owners and I specialize in giving you the tools you need to experience profit, protection, and peace of mind while creating the brand of your dreams.

I’ve worked with thousands of brilliant entrepreneurs over the years, many of who were killing it in business and growing super fast but didn’t have all the legal stuff figured out and it ended up costing them a lot of heartache and pain.

And it’s not just them.

On the regular,
I see:

  1. Business owners get slapped with a cease and desist because their oh-so-good name was already taken and they had no idea because they didn’t do a thorough search beforehand.
  2. Online Coaches get a logo, full branding, and a sales page all done for their signature program only to have to change it (and spend oodles of money to do so) because the name they chose was too similar to another program on the market.
  3. Creatives come up with the perfect “nobody’s-gonna-have-this-name” name and have that same name stolen out from under them because they never registered to trademark it with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

And I’m here, right now, telling you all of this because I don’t want that to be you.

I don’t want you to have to experience the pain or heartache that goes along with any of these situations, especially when I know that you can stay in your creative genius AND protect your business at the same time … without having to have an attorney on retainer or having to sacrifice all your creative energy in the process.

Make It Official is an easy-to-understand digital course taught in plain English—none of that over-your-head-lawyer-talk over here… for any creative or business owner ready to put a ring on that business, program or product name of theirs and make it official.

By the time you finish this course,
you’ll know …

  • Exactly what trademarks are and when you need one.
  • How to easily conduct a thorough trademark search so that you can feel confident that the name you settle on is truly up for grabs.
  • How to file your application with the USPTO AND how to do so in a way that’ll have the best chance of getting your application approved.

Let’s delve into the details....

here’s how it all shakes out

Module 01: The Basics


The “Get IN-Formation Module”

After this very first module, you’ll come away with a clear understanding of:

  • What trademarks are and why you need one for your brand
  • How they are used, and how they work for your business
  • The different types of trademarks and which are the best fit for you
  • How trademarks are classified

You will be able to begin considering which classes (categories) you’ll want to file your application(s) for. I’ll take you through everything you need to know about the goods and services classes.

I will also give you the full scoop on the trademarking process, from idea to application, and beyond. We will take a detailed look at the difference between “in commerce” and “intent to use” applications, so you can decide which one you should file.


The “Save You Time & Money” Module

In this module, I’ll give you my signature, step-by-step process for researching names to make sure you don’t waste time and money on trademark applications that are doomed from the get-go.

By the end of this module, you’ll be a whiz at conducting a thorough trademark search. This module is all about giving you the skills and know-how you need to conduct your own thorough trademark search … anytime you’re naming anything.

A Protected Brand Sets You Apart From the Competition

and just makes everything much easier

How would it feel if you were to spend months, years even, creating a brand—pouring your blood, sweat and tears into that brand AND a lot of moolah, too—and then find out that it’s suddenly no longer yours?!

You’d be crushed (and probably pretty pissed off, too) and it would take a lot of money & willpower to come back from that.

Now, I know it can be done because many of the entrepreneurs who hire me hire me because they’re in that place and they need legal advice. Unfortunately, what often happens is that they have to walk away from the brand they’ve tirelessly built and start again.

Being forced to walk away from the thing you’ve cultivated and created is devastating. And that’s why I’m on a mission to let everyone in business know how freakin’ important it is to protect their brand assets by trademarking them.

Got questions?

I've got answers.

The best way to answer this question is with a question: If someone else were to trademark your brand name, logo, tagline, or similar, would you be pissed off about it? If you care about it being stolen, then you should care enough to want to protect it—no matter how long you’ve been in business.

It can be. Each application submitted to the USPTO costs $250-$350, but since applications are 50% more likely to succeed when supported by an attorney (who charge between $1,500 – $5,000 for drafting and filing the application) the costs can escalate.

Make It Official offers you the opportunity to learn all the steps required for yourself so that when you’re ready to trademark your next big thing, you’ll have everything you need to do it right the first time.

Yes. We have extended payment plan options available upon checkout.

It depends. Make it Official will help you identify whether the trademark already issued will impact the application you wish to make for your own business or brand.

Yes! There are tons of reasons why a trademark application can be turned down; from experience, I know that most fail because they’re either too similar to something that already exists (which could have been found if a comprehensive search was done) or they’re far too general to succeed.

Make it Official will spell out everything you need to do from the outset to ensure your application isn’t rejected or abandoned, and you don’t lose your $250 filing fee.

Not necessarily. I’ll be walking you through all the protections you’ll be afforded when you are awarded a U.S. trademark, and letting you in on which countries have reciprocal agreements in place to give you extra safeguards against ‘brand-nappers’ overseas.

Absolutely. During your Two Bonus LIVE Q&A sessions, you can ask questions and get personal feedback.

You have access to the course materials for 12 months.  Since the USPTO makes changes and updates to the trademark process each year, this course is more likely to produce favorable results when consumed within 12 months. Providing you with only the most up to date information on the trademark process is a top priority for me.

Due the instant access to the Course, there is a no refund policy.  So I want you to be absolutely sure that you are ready to commit before you sign up. If you think you’re ready, but you have more questions, submit your questions here on this page and we will be happy to answer them.

Absolutely. DIY is not for everyone so I do offer a signature Locked & Lawyered Trademark Package where I handle all of this for you from start to finish. To get started, book a Trademark Brand Strategy Session here.
