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.

Speaking at the Clio Cloud Conference in New Orleans

Lisa and I had a fantastic time in New Orleans visiting with friends, enjoying good food and music, and speaking at the Clio Cloud Conference.

Our friend, Nicole Abboud of Abboud Media rocked the stage with a great presentation about millennials. Later that day, I also had the pleasure of presenting my thoughts about using VR, AR, MR and AI in litigation and trial. It was also great having dinner with LegalMinds mastermind member, friend, and fellow motocross rider, Thomas Wallin, and his wonderful friend Madison.

Several additional highlights for us included meeting and chatting with Preet Bharara and disability rights and global inclusion leader, Haben Girma. In addition to the pictures below, we shared a few personal memories on my Facebook page.

David Lat, the founder and managing editor of Above the Law wrote a wonderful overview of the #ClioCloud9 event titled, “4 Trends Shaping The Future Of The Legal Profession” (thanks David!).

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.
