Rachel is an intellectual property lawyer, business coach, and the creator of Small Business Bodyguard.
In 2013, she created the Small Business Bodyguard: Cover Your Bases, Cover Your Assets, Cover Your Ass. This game-changing legal resource has been called “fun and engaging” by New York Times bestselling author Chris Brogan and a “graduate-level course on how to build a strong foundation for your business” by CEO of OurDeal, Kyle Durand.
When she’s not taking care of clients, she enjoys baking in the kitchen (barefoot, with rosé in hand), lifting weights, juicing (the green kind, not the steroid kind), reading to her toddlers, being a “dance mom” to her girls and going on new adventures with her family (her favorite destination being the South of France, of course!).

Learn How to Protect Your Brand + Register Your Trademarks in This Free Mini Course.
The longer you are in business the more content your business produces and the greater the value of your brand. Things like your business name, logo, slogan and product names are how people recognize your business in the marketplace. The reputation you have established through your different brand elements and stellar content are why people buy from you. It’s important to take steps to protect these identifiers of your brand because they are company assets.
Maybe you tried to take care of your trademark applications yourself but because you’re not a lawyer, you got stuck and never got it done. Maybe you talked to a few lawyers but they made you uncomfortable (or their fees did) and you decided not to move forward. Or maybe it’s still sitting on your “to-do” list … and you figure you’ll get to it one day.
Well, Brand Boss will help you protect your brand once and for all, on your own, but with the guidance of our trademark expertise in your back pocket.Learn More
