Intellectual property

Intellectual properties are intangible assets. Hence, they can be financially exploited because like physical property, they can be sold or licensed. Every business possesses such assets whether they are aware of it or not. This is true not only to large corporations, but to small and medium-sized entities as well.

No matter what size or nature of business you are in as long as you have established your presence in the marketplace, you need to protect and manage your intellectual property. Doing so is critical as it can mean the difference between business success and failure.

As a small business owner, you should understand the different forms of intellectual property. You should get acquainted with each of them because while others come into play without the need for a registration process, some involve a formal application and examination process before a right can be registered.

Copyright, design, trade mark and patent are among the most popular forms of intellectual property. Copyright is the right to prevent copying (and certain other acts) in relation to works that qualify for protection. It can in a form of artistic, musical, literary, or dramatic works, written or film. Meanwhile, design is “new” when nothing like it has been previously made available to the public. A trade mark identifies goods or services as those produced or provided by a specific person or enterprise. And, patent gives the inventor the exclusive right, for a limited period, to prevent others from using his invention without permission.

Protecting your intellectual property is crucial. Luckily there are easy ways to do it. Read this post for more details: https://www.smallbusiness.wa.gov.au/business-advice/intellectual-property/protecting-intellectual-property

Exercise on-the-go: 5 workouts you can do from your hotel

June 8th, 2018

Not all the time we can have access to the gym and this is probably the reason why some people are forced to resort to exercise at home or even at their hotel room. There are a number of exercises that can be done simply at your hotel; these exercises might be simple and almost do not require equipment but they can give you they same results as if you worked out at the gym.

However, performing toning exercises at your hotel room requires some knowledge. It will also need some motivation. Most of the free exercises done at the gym may be done at your hotel room as well.

However, the fact that you are exercising not at the gym, but the comfort of your hotel room does not free you from the need to warm up. Warm up exercises are as important to your workout as much as stretches at the end of the workout.

When exercising at home or at your hotel room, you don’t have to invest on large expensive pieces of equipment. All you need are just some weights and an aerobic box. Or, you can also improvise some of these pieces of equipment. For instance, you can use staircase’s (if your hotel has) first steps as your step box.

Knowing some exercises that are suitable for hotel rooms can help you a lot, especially if your job takes you on the road. However, if you are on the go and you need to ride a plane for your next business meeting or sales calls, carrying dumbbells are impossible to carry with all these flight regulations.

Thankfully, you can still work your body out using several exercises you can do to stay trim, even if there’s no gym around or you’re on short time.
