J.’s less tactful and unofficial title for this episode is a nod to Steven Pressfield: “Nobody Wants to Read Your Shit.” While protecting your intellectual property is wise, spending time trying to lock it down is foolish. You will discover how you should be protecting your creative work and more:

  • A great book that can help you rethink your author career and build your own personalized definition of success
  • What intellectual property is
  • Why you probably don’t need to worry about it as much as you think you do
  • What you should actually be concerned about concerning your intellectual property
  • Some of the strategies the guys recommend for protecting your intellectual property + the importance of seeking proper legal advice if you have serious concerns
