The Geek in Review Ep. 126 – Leigh Vickery on Creating Top-Shelf Customer Experience in Legal

In an industry focused on revenue and profit, where does something like customer experience stand in the priorities of legal providers? Leigh Vickery, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer at Level Legal, as well as CEO and founder of Queso Mama, says that we need to look at the corporate and legal industry world differently. Instead of putting shareholders and partners first, they need to fall much further down the list. If you take care of your employees and your customers first, there will st...

Burned by bidding wars, some buyers back off

The first house was in Midvale, Utah — a three-bedroom, just over 2,100 square feet, listed for $479,000. Rob Ettaro and his girlfriend, Kaliana Veros, who had moved from western New York to Salt Lake City, drawn by career opportunities and the stunning scenery of the Wasatch Range, decided to make an offer. This was back in the wintertime, when the young couple had a modest wish list that included room for family to visit. Their hearts still raced at the idea of being homeowners. Ettaro and Ver...

2021 GET ON! Adv Fest: The Alternative Sturgis Adventure Motorcycle Rally

I’m always ready to be first in line to try new things, especially if it involves motorcycles. An invitation to attend the FIRST Adventure Motorcycle Rally (that I’m aware of) in Sturgis, South Dakota came from our friend Anthony Silvotti at Revzilla about a month and a half ago. It teased a raft of alluring riding opportunities and recreational activities: Meeting and riding with the Revzilla team personalities Spurgeon Dunbar, Jen Dunstan, and Brandon Wise, among others.

The Bachelor’s Commitment to Excess Is Killing the Planet

There was a moment on this week’s episode of The Bachelorette that made my jaw drop. It had nothing to do with a fight between contestants or a heartbreaking revelation. Rather, it was water in the desert. Lots of it. And it made me think about the future of a show that has traditionally portrayed environmental…Read more...

How a “Pride Before the Fall” Moment Led to a Beautiful Redemption of Failure

I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume most of us have failed at something. And I’m convinced how we see, internalize, and respond to our defeats and disappointments makes all the difference in the world. Is your tendency to dwell on your mistake and self-flagellate over your lack of success? Do you get disproportionately angry, default to a victim mentality (Why does this always happen to meeeee?), or assign blame elsewhere? Do you dig in your heels determined to make it work at all cost...

The Geek in Review Ep. 124 – Maya Markovich and Ivy Grey on Creating More Value with the Time You Have

Dentons Nextlaw Labs ‘ Maya Markovich understands that rational lawyers would observe market dynamics and client pressures to weigh the costs and benefits of adapting their behaviors to survive change, stay employed, and make their work more fulfilling. But, people don’t always make rational decisions. And, law firm’s economic structure incentivizes lower efficiency as a method of obtaining higher revenue.  Wordrake ‘s Ivy Grey thinks that firms need to stop thinking of short-...

7 Mistakes to Avoid When Selling Your Boutique

Mistake number one is boutique owners being unclear as to what they want from the sale. They must understand why they’re selling and Greg encourages everybody to take that seriously because it’s foundational. If you’re unsure of who you are, you will be unhappy with the sale. If you don’t know where you are headed, you will be unhappy with your sale. There’s no amount of money that will change us.

Could You Build a Law Library From Nothing?

I have worked in several law libraries, and I can remember the way each one felt when I first saw them; full of beauty and potential, but completely overwhelming. With each new library I would take a tour while someone knowledgeable about the collection explained where various things could be found, and each time I tried to take it all in, knowing full well that it would be months before I would feel confident that I could find anything. A new collection feels like a massive challenge to learn, ...

Whicker: Greg Larson’s ‘Clubbie’ shows baseball’s bleak heart, powerful grip

The first year that Greg Larson worked in the clubhouse of the Aberdeen Ironbirds, he lived in a bare apartment and slept on an air mattress. In the second year, Larson did as all pros do, and made an adjustment. He ditched the apartment. Well, actually the Baltimore Orioles, the “parent club,” stopped paying for it. So Larson took pains to construct an office and a bedroom inside the ribs of a room that was already a second home to 20 or so college kids, Dominicans, teenagers and ex-dreamers an...

There should be a Hall of Fame for recipes, and this should be its first inductee. Made this today as a test run for first time family post-covid party targeted for Oct 2021 (we’re in Brazil which has been, cough, problematic). It’s sheer perfection.

Podcast #716: How to Make Your Life More Effortless

When we’re failing to do the things that are most important in our lives, the typical diagnosis of the problem is to believe we’re simply not working hard enough, and the typical solution to the problem is to put in more effort, apply more discipline, and grind it out. My guest would say that we’re thinking about both the root and the remedy of the issue in the wrong way. His name is Greg McKeown, and he’s the author of the bestseller Essentialism, as well as his latest book, Effortless: Make...
