Nobody responds.

You yell louder. Over and over.

Finally, someone standing safely on the sidewalk, 100 feet away responds, “What about me? My life matters too!”

You turn your head towards the distant voice in disbelief. You respond… (click to read)

This is the Mindset and Approach We Use to Build Our Practice and Brand (new podcast interview)

Ken’s introduction:

“Social media marketing strategies expert Mitch Jackson reveals the social media marketing strategies he used to go from practicing law from the trunk of his car to becoming one of America’s leading trial attorneys.”

Thanks Ken.

Truth be told and full transparency, I started my practice out of the back of my car to save money but also had office space with another attorney. In exchange for putting in a few hours each week at his firm, he let me use his extra office, conference room and address. It was a great way to start the practice and keep expenses to a minimum.

As for my skills as a trial lawyer, I’m flattered by Ken’s characterization but, I’m the first to admit that our country is blessed to have many skilled and caring trial lawyers protecting the legal rights of the consumer. I’m humbled that Ken would include me on the list.

This was fun. Give this episode a listen here.
