Four Big Online Business Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Two big mistakes I see online businesses make (and how you can avoid making them yourself)


Are you interested in learning the two biggest mistakes 99% all live video creators make?

Then watch my short two-minute video.

So what did you think? Agree or disagree? I know I’ve been guilty of this in the past. How about you?

If you’d like to dive a bit deeper into a different (and better) mindset focusing on respecting the time and attention of your audience and raising the bar in your professional relationships, then I invite you to watch and listen to today’s Maximum Lawyer Podcast (video and audio links below). These guys did a great job of doing a live video interview the right way.

Co-hosts and lawyers extraordinaire, Jim Hacking and Tyson Mutrux, had Bob Burg on today’s show. Bob is a friend, gifted speaker, consultant and best-selling author of numerous books including “The Go-Giver” and “Adversaries into Allies”).

Talking Points From My “Legal” Presentation at Social Media Day San Diego 2017

We had over 400 people from around the world attend Social Media Day San Diego. The venue was on the sand at the beautiful Bahia Resort on Mission Bay. I shared a few pictures and videos in an album on Facebook and also on Twitter and Instagram using #SMDaySD

My afternoon presentation revolved around sharing 30 years of legal tips to help keep my social media friends safe when doing business on the digital platforms. Looking back, it’s clear my message was to be careful about what you say and do on social media. In today’s world, there are legal consequences.

I started things off by sharing the below Fyre Festival video from Mashable

Next, I showed everyone what a $100M lawsuit looks like and we talked about business, legal and social media promotion options to avoid being named a defendant in a similar claim.

I then discussed 7 specific tips to help everyone in the audience safely do business on the social media platforms. If you missed the event, no worries. Many of the approaches I mentioned can be found in a combination of my earlier blog posts, “Nine Legal and Entrepreneurial Tips To Help You Start and Build Your Online Business”,  “So You Want To Start a Business?” and “Influencer Marketing- Tips for Influencers, Social Media Agencies, Brands and Consumers.”

All of my fellow speakers shared major value during the conference. If you were not able to make it this year, you can stay connected and possibly eventually get access to some or all of the content by connecting with SocialMediaDaySanDiego, Casual Fridays or Tyler Anderson.

I believe social media is all about relationships. It was great seeing old friends and also beginning many new friendships. I’m looking forward to staying in touch with everyone and continuing the social media dance for many years to come!

Thanks everyone for a fantastic experience. Make today your masterpiece!

How to Remain Human in High Stakes Business Negotiations

During the #H2HChat (live video interview), I shared 30 years of trial lawyer negotiation approaches and techniques with friends and social media pros Bryan Kramer and Courtney Smith Kramer of Purematter.

You can watch the recorded interview above or here!

I believe the “insider secrets” I shared have helped me close numerous multi-million dollar cases for my clients. Regardless whether your next deal is small or large, these negotiation methods will work for you too.

I may share detailed “show notes” and bullet points in the near future. Follow me here at the blog or on social to get the link when it goes live.
