Business model patentable?

About five minutes ago I thought of an idea for a business model that I think has great potential. Is there any way to protect this?



Edit: Found my answer.

    Anyone with patent experience know if filing a provisional patent is something an intelligent person can do on their own without hiring a lawyer or patent service? Does anyone have any suggestions?

    My brother is a U.S. patent examiner. The short answer to your question is "no." Let me know if I can help.
