Haben Girma- Disability Rights Lawyer and Advocate

 

My Podcast Interview with Haben Girma [written transcript here]

Haben Girma is the first deaf-blind person to graduate from Harvard Law School, and a leading advocate for equal opportunities for people with disabilities.

Several United States Presidents have praised Haben for her work and President Obama named her a White House Champion of Change. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had this to say about Haben:

“I wish to take this opportunity, as well, to recognize you for your lifelong advocacy for people with disabilities, especially for the deaf-blind community. As a teacher and Prime Minister, I am particularly grateful for your work to ensure that students with disabilities have access to the tools they need to thrive at school and beyond. When our society is inclusive, we are all better off.”

While Haben is busy traveling around the world consulting and public speaking and teaching clients the benefits of fully accessible products and services, today, she’s took a break from her travels and is joining us from San Francisco for this chat.

On a side note, we did the interview like most podcasts. The only difference was that Haben had an interpreter sharing my questions and comments with her through a special brail assisted device. Understanding that there are more than 1B disabled people worldwide, it’s important to appreciate how technology can bring us together regardless of where we are or what our disability is. Please connect with Haben via her website at HabenGirma.com

How to Have a “Success Mindset” In Business and Life

I believe that an indispensable ingredient to finding success in your practice, business, and life, is having the right mindset. This is especially true when it comes to building your brand on social media. Sharing your personality, being selectively transparent, and putting proper people skills to work will help you stand out above the noise.

While building your brand, it’s important to realize that social media platforms will come and go, but relationships can last a lifetime. Understanding this fact will help you create long-term success. Doing things differently than everyone else in your profession will allow you to stand out and develop an active digital footprint and reputation on the social media platforms resulting in your brand expanding from local to global.

While I was a guest on the popular Maximum Power Podcast, attorneys and co-hosts, Jim Hacking and Tyson Mutrux, focused our conversation on the topic of “mindset” and asked me questions that I’ve never been asked before. In the end, this particular episode pulled back the curtain on exactly what my mindset has been over the years and, also what I’ve done to build my brand on social media. For those reasons, I want to share it with you.

If you’re serious about building your practice and brand and taking things to the next level, then I recommend you watch this interview. What I’ve shared here, with Jim and Tyson’s permission, is the video version of the Maximum Power Podcast. If you’re interested in listening to the entire interview in podcast version, and on your favorite podcast platform, you can do so here.

Sharing Social Media Ideas with an MBA Class at Chapman University

Last night I had the pleasure of sharing “real world” stories with the MBA class of Professor Niklas Myhr at Chapman University. Professor Myhr is doing amazing things at Chapman and sharing a highly educated global view of social and digital with his students.

We talked about using social media to expand your brand from local to global and also engaged in extensive Q&A. Many of the approaches we chatted about I share weekly at LegalMinds.lawyer, my social media and digital mastermind for professionals.

What really struck me, in a good way, was how this room full of millennial MBA students viewed some social media platforms through a slightly different lens than the “experts” we normally hear from on social. Their feedback had value and will probably result in me making several changes on how I’ll be engaging my audience on the digital platforms.

When all said and done, I’m always impressed with students I meet at #Chapman. Without exception, I walk away each year (it’s my third year of guest lecturing) knowing that our business community and country are in very good hands.

Thank you Professor Myhr (below). You are a true social media #RockStar!

Fantastic Time Speaking at Tony Robbins!

I recently had the opportunity to share the stage with my friend, David Meerman Scott, at the Tony Robbins Business Mastery Event in Las Vegas. There were 2,000 people in the audience and I walked away impressed with the entire production, experience and everyone involved.

David and I talked about marketing and branding and specifically, the concept of real time newsjacking. In fact, during the event David shared his new course titled, “New Marketing Mastery” which includes everything you need to know about this powerful business tactic. I newsjack in one form or another, on a weekly basis, and encourage anyone interested in doing the same to get David’s course. It’s that good!

It looks like I’ll be back at next year’s event and so maybe I’ll see you there!

 

The “Streaming Lawyer” in September’s Orange County Attorney Journal Magazine

“If you’re practicing law, marketing your practice, and building your brand like everyone else in town, then you’re probably doing things the wrong way.”

-Mitch Jackson

I’m honored and humbled to be featured in September’s Orange County Attorney Journal. Instead of talking about the law, I took this opportunity to share my thoughts about how being human and embracing social media, livestreaming, and digital, has helped our firm better serve the local, national, and international communities. Regardless of who you are and what you do, I believe the approach of helping, caring, and showing your human side, will work for you too.
