I’m honored to be presenting at the very first “MONETIZE Livestreaming NOW” virtual summit. Together with other experts from around the country, we’ll show you how we’re using live video in our business models to help clients, customers and generate revenue. There will be a presentation for everyone so stop by (it’s FREE) and pinpoint those approaches and opportunities best suited for YOU.
As many of you know, I attribute a great deal of my speaking and storytelling success in the courtroom to hard work and many of the approaches I’ve learned from the 1999 World Champion of Public Speaking, and friend, Craig Valentine.
Today, Craig Valentine has teamed up with the world’s most renowned motivational speakers, Les Brown, to bring you their brand new “Legendary Speaking Course” which shows you a storytelling system that for the lawyers in my community, will help you make a powerful impact with your judges and juries resulting in better results for your clients. For the non-lawyers in my tribe, I’m talking about methods and approaches that will substantially improve your on and offline sales and storytelling speaking techniques resulting in more sales, opportunities and profits in 2021 and beyond.
For a limited period of time (ends today), you can get Les and Craig’s new course at a substantial discount. Regardless of who you are or what you do, if you want to improve your storytelling and speaking abilities, check out their new course. All the details are here!
Four years ago after finishing a pre-trial Settlement Conference down at the Orange County Superior Court, a young man stopped me in the hallway and asked if he could ask a legal question.
I had a couple of minutes and said, “Sure, what can I do for you?”
Once we were done, he thanked me for answering his question and getting him going in the right direction. He then asked, “How long have you been practicing law.”
I answered, “Well, my partner, Lisa, and I have been lawyers for about 30 years. We’ve pretty much seen it all.”
On my drive back to the office, I thought about his question a bit more. I ran the numbers for both of us later that day, and what I saw caught me by surprise:
- 124,800 hours of combined experience practicing law (this was a conservative estimate, and the real number is much more);
- 2,640 hours of combined court and jury trials. This number jumps up to 5,200+ if you take pre-trial preparation into consideration;
- 2,000 hours of combined mediations and arbitrations (again, probably more).
Because almost half a decade has passed since I was asked this question, these numbers are even higher today.
What are your numbers? Regardless of who you are or what you do for a living, how much time have you put into your craft, education, job or profession?
It’s crazy when you really think about it but time really does fly!
BTW, if you need to find a lawyer, here are three good ways to find a great lawyer.
Join me next week at the “Grow With Video” virtual experience. This is the #1 video marketing conference for entrepreneurs in the world!
