What Do All GREAT Communicators Do Without Exception?


They believe their message will change lives and make a difference!

mitch jackson streaming lawyer believe in your messageThere are many tips and approaches to help make you a good communicator. How you look and sound is important. Sharing good content is critical to success. Using storytelling, anchors and other techniques also will increase the chances of your message reaching your audience.

While all of the above is critically important, when it comes to effectively communicating, motivating, and empowering an audience of one or one thousand, nothing is more important than your mindset.

If you believe in your message and feel that it’s so important that it will change lives, and then show that in your delivery, you will have an impact.

If you believe what you are sharing is something your audience needs to hear and that you are sharing incredible value, then your message will be listened to and acted upon.

If you believe in who you are and what you are doing, then so will others.

Taking a position and having conviction about your topic will result in your audience being empowered to take action.

Honored To BE Mentioned In David Meerman Scott’s New Book!

david meerman scott mitch jackson 500Author and speaker, David Meerman Scott, has hit another home run with his updated 5th edition of “The New Rules of Marketing and PR: How to Use Social Media, Online Video, Mobile Applications, Blogs, News Releases, and Viral Marketing to Reach Buyers Directly.”

I do admit to being a bit biased with David’s book. I say this not because he was kind enough to share a few pages about how my law firm uses social media to help consumers (beginning at page 86), but because I am always impressed with his thoughts and approaches to marketing, sales, service and social media (I’m also a big-time fan of “The New Rules of Sales and Service”)

This is the fifth edition of the pioneering guide to the future of marketing. The New Rules of Marketing & PR is an international bestseller with more than 350,000 copies sold in over twenty-five languages. It offers a step-by-step action plan for harnessing the power of modern marketing and PR to directly communicate with buyers, raise visibility, and increase sales.

If you haven’t already done so, pick up David’s updated book and join me on live stream to share how you’re using his ideas and approaches to build your business, connect with others, and increase sales!
