Welcome to my site! I’m grateful for you. That’s why I created this page to help you get the answers you need fast!

Are you looking for encouragement in your journey of #momlife, entrepreneurship, or personal development? I’m building a blog for you piecemeal right here at Smarter Joy.

Trademark Resources

Do you have Trademark-related questions?

For help with fighting questionable trademarks on Merch or Etsy (IP infringement, Letter of Protest training, naming your brand), check out my Trademark Resources. You’ll find recommended groups, quick links, and more. (The page is not complete! The best way to be notified of updates to it is to subscribe.)

To learn more than you ever cared to know about how our US trademark system is biased toward faulty trademarks, you’ll need to access a “hidden” category on my site. I’m not hiding information, just trying to not clutter up the blog with… So. Much. Noise. about a topic that most of the moms I want to help don’t care about. So these posts are excluded from the “Blog” list. Here’s an intro to why I care about Trademark System Bias.

An important note about limitations

I’m on a healing path, overcoming several issues that limit my productivity. So while I’d love to talk with you one on one via email or messenger, the truth is I don’t yet have the bandwidth to do that and finish the most important project of my life (a book in tribute to my dear mom, who turned 92 recently).

I’m still fighting questionable trademarks. It’s just that until Mom’s book has a proper start, my main “trademark” goal is to document what I’ve learned so far (before I forget something important! wink, wink!).

For now, if you can’t find the answers you need or if something I wrote is confusing, drop a question on my Facebook business page. That’s the best way to be sure I see it. I’ll answer as soon as possible.
