The Lawyer Who Stole Christmas

A friend of mine posted on Facebook tonight about a Scrooge lawyer who ruined her Christmas by dropping work on her desk this morning that had to be completed by the end of the day.  It reminded me of a story about a client of mine who was shocked to discover he had turned into that Scrooge himself. Read on if you are afraid you might become (or have already become) a lawyer you never expected to be. A few years ago, I was running a mastermind meeting for a roomful of lawyers who had just joined our Personal Family … Continue reading »

I’ve heard it all from lawyers who are afraid to use traditional direct response marketing to reach their clients because it’s just too ugly. Well, details released today from Obama’s fundraising team confirm: ugly, casual, personal and direct works. Another surprise to the Obama team was that the mild use of profanity was a huge hit.
