The ABA called me up out of the blue in July and said “We’re having an Ignite-style event as part of the Legal Rebels project at the Annual Meeting and we’re asking 10 thought-leaders to come present. We’d like you to be one of them.”
Of course I jumped at the opportunity. Then I jumped on a plane. I’d been hoping for an opportunity to get to San Francisco on business ever since Missing the Flight. This was it.
I was picked up at the Airport by Mary Kay (my biological mother) with whom I would be spending the first time together ever in my almost 42 years of life. We got to spend some great time.
The next morning I was able to hook up with one of the Members of The Space Between Center for Creative Spirit in Business lawyer mastermind group, Kristen Kuse and have our first in-person chat. Then off to the venue.
The presentations were given in a segmented area of the Exhibit Floor of the Annual Meeting. Mine is titled: “The F-Word Manifesto” and deals with 4 F-Words: Fear, Fail, Flat & Free. Here’s the presentation.
You can pop over to the F-Word Manifesto Web site and sign up to receive the freebies. Also take advantage of scheduling a 20-minute “Ask Anything” conversation with me. I’m convinced that my flat fee model will work in any service business if you do a little homework, get past your fear, and have a little faith. I’d love to help you figure out how to implement this system in your business too.
You can find the other ABA Ignite presentations here.
I’ll be doing a similar presentation of The F-Word Manifesto talk at Ignite Fort Collins #6 on September 22st. You can get your Free tickets here. The presentation I’ll do that night will be tailored for service businesses in general rather than just for lawyers. I hope to see you there or talk to you soon on a 20-minute Ask Anything call.
