What was this episode about?

Rich Goldstein has obtained over 2,000 patents, yet he’s the first to tell you that you may not need one. In this episode, we’ll cover when and why you need a patent and also learn from Rich Goldstein as he shares what he thinks sets apart successful entrepreneurs from those that fail.

We talked about his background in law and entrepreneurship and what got him interested in intellectual property in the first place. Rich offers his perspective on what makes entrepreneurs successful while others are less so. His answer might surprise you!

We also talked about what things can and cannot be patented and under what circumstances you should seek one out.  

If you’re unsure about how you should protect your product as a business owner, you should listen to the episode. Rich helps walk us through many of the questions that are probably running through your mind, and I was so glad to have him on the show!
