Need a shot of motivation to work on your business! Then tackle it with a view to getting it ready for sale. A business that's ready for sale is well worth keeping. So often I see business owners go from being bored or lacking motivation in their business to suddenly becoming energised, motivated and excited about the possibilities. All because they have opened up their minds and can see a way to exit with equity and be in control of their future. It starts with my half day seminar!

Business planning is simple. NOW, WHERE and HOW. That's all you need to know! Where is my business at NOW? What's the situational analysis telling me? WHERE do I want to get to? What's my 'end point' or long term goal? And HOW am I going to get my business to my 'end point' or long term goal? What is my strategy? Then hire yourself a good coach or mentor to keep you accountable for actioning the plan.

How Do You Protect Your Intellectual Property?

A client recently asked me this question:

“Can you give any advice on any steps we should take to protect my intellectual property at this point. I’ve not really taken steps in this regard and don’t know if I need to in any way?”

First, to clarify: She was not asking about legal protection – copyright, trade marks, patents, etc. Rather, she wanted to know what she could do to prevent (or at least, discourage) clients from copying the material she was providing to them.

The trouble is that with digital (i.e. electronic) material, it can be extremely complicated to stop people copying it. For example, to watch a video, they do have to download it, even if they don’t click an actual Download button. There are some sophisticated copy-protection schemes, but they can be difficult to set up, and can cause problems for some legitimate uses (which means you end up with clients phoning you for tech support!).

So it’s probably not worth trying too hard to stop really determined people from copying your stuff.

Here are some options …

In general, there are a number of things you can do to protect your material:

- First, of course, make your contract clear about what they are getting. If you can provide valuable resources at a fair price, there’s less temptation for them to abuse it.

- Put clear ownership information on all your materials (including a copyright notice, even though this is not legally required).

- If it’s easy to protect something, do so. For example, if they don’t need to edit a document, give it to them as PDF rather than Word.

- If there are easy ways for you to monitor them, do so. For example, one of my clients licences his online courses to clients, and they send him the list of names to enrol in the course. This is a bit of extra work on his part, but enables him to easily keep track of the number of users – and bill the client accordingly.

- Don’t worry about the really determined IP thief. It creates too much of a burden for you and your legitimate clients. For example, in that previous example of the client with online courses, there’s nothing to stop a client from enrolling one person and then sharing the material with everybody else. But it’s too much effort to prevent that sort of abuse.

- That said, if you do find somebody using your materials illegally, raise the issue with them. Sometimes they are doing it unknowingly and would pay if they knew, others are doing it knowingly but would back down if detected, and others will simply ignore you and go on doing it. But you’re still no worse off by raising the issue.

A great night at The Harry Perkins Institute for Medical Research. The Sons Of Janarchy team were presented with a certificate of appreciation for the funds raised in 2014. Dr Peter Leedman, Director of The Institute, took time out from his evening to give us a conducted tour of the facilities in Nedlands. Absolutely brilliant and what an inspiring and passionate man Peter is. Thank you to everyone who contributed to my ride in 2014. We are doing it again in 2015, BIGGER and BETTER. If you would like to donate - every dollar counts and goes to the Institute.  just click this link or copy and paste it in to a browser;

Should you hire 'generalists' over 'specialists' in to your business? This interesting article may surprise you!
Should you look for a toolbox of skills over one well-honed expertise? Here's one argument for why it's the better team-building formula.

I Live in Perth, Western Australia and love my golf, my cycling and being a one-eyed West Coast Eagles supporter. For business I work with business owners to help them plan and prepare for the eventual sale of their business.
I am a "business ready for sale consultant" and I work with business owners to help them plan and prepare for the eventual sale of their business. A business which is 'ready for sale' is well worth keeping. A business sale is often one of the biggest pay days that a business owner can have. Why risk not getting the best possible price in the best possible time?

I also run business owner mentoring groups, workshops and seminars on how to prepare businesses ready for sale and what to look for when buying a business. I have one on one consulting clients present at seminars and conferences and facilitate workshops. I am also a registered business broker.
