Hey everybody, I’m J.D. Houvener, your host of the Bold Today Show, where you, the inventor, entrepreneur, or business owner, get your daily inspiration to make the world a better place. All right, we’re doing another 13-step session, this is Step 2 on how to patent your invention. Right, how to move and get filed the actual steps involved. So yesterday, we talked about Step 1, which was understanding the criteria, which category, and putting a title on your invention. Step number 2 today is all about the general description. This is the first real step into writing down what your invention is. This should be easy, this shouldn’t be daunting at all. And as you may have seen in the description here, I’ve given you some tips to sort of break through that writer’s block. I’ve provided you some templates. So once you’ve decided which category your invention is in, whether that’s a machine, a manufacture, a composition of matter, or a process, I’ve provided for you a template paragraph to work through. Start thinking about how to describe your invention properly so you’re really making sure you’re getting everything out there so that you can think of this really as the best way, like a pitch, like you’re up there, you’ve got a two-, three-, maybe a five-minute max presentation to someone that you want to try to get a general vibe of what your invention’s about, not the nitty-gritty details, but just about conveying the big selling points, the fun, sexy, interesting points about your invention, so their ears are perked up and they’re ready for more. That’s what you have to to focus on here. That’s it. So don’t overthink this section, just start writing, use those templates, and I look forward to seeing you here tomorrow to talk about Step 3. I’m your host, J.D. Houvener, of the Bold Today Show. Go big. Go bold.
