Instructor

Hi, I’m Shawntia Maria. When I started my business a few years ago, I came across individuals using my slogans and designs for my business. At that moment I realized I did not own my brand and business. So, I decided to do my own research to learn how to trademark and protect my brand. I currently have 4 registered trademarks. When I first started this process it was a bit overwhelming, but I wanted to help other business owners know if I can do it, so can YOU and this is why I decided to launch this course.
