From Distressed to Peaceful Possibility in 5 Days or Less
You ever come across something so powerful, you think, holy crapola, I have got to tell (insert every person on the planet that you love) about this!!
Well, that is what the Breath and Wonder technique is all about.
Yep, your clients need this! The people you love need this.
If you caught this week’s podcast you will see that I interviewed my friend Deni Mariscal. In this episode, I dived into the Woo lot more than usual, however, with the eye to concrete results.
I interviewed Deni Mariscal, my dear friend, and practitioner of Energy Healing and the Art of Awakening Through Wonder which is a method nothing you have ever heard of or learned about before.
Emotions have defined energy, a field of their own, complete with shape, density, and texture. Science has now proven this. Emotions are an integral part of a person’s overall energy flow, and if they are held tightly they disrupt this flow....
Use your words!: Your Shortcut for Better Relationships
As lawyers, we communicate a lot, all the time, in many different ways. We write letters, send emails, phone (yes pick up the phone sometimes!) with other lawyers, our clients, our team, and other professionals in our industry. Sometimes we even text about a file matter. I do.
Words have meaning. Words have power.
Communications have come a long way since my first law job when we addressed every letter (no email yet at that time, it was that long ago haha) with “Dear Sirs/Mesdames” and signed the letters with “sincerely.” Not exactly warm and collaborative or inviting.
The thing to remember is that even when sending a quick email, the proper salutation is not only important and appropriate, it is often your first opportunity to influence the narrative, particularly between you and your “opposing” counsel. Proper salutations are important even when texting.
For The Stressed Out Lawyers Only
One of the students that I have worked with has just opened up their new firm.
Because they did foundational work over a number of months, they hit the ground running!
They have only been open for less than two weeks and have already paid off their law firm’s overhead and their living expenses for the month. In fact, people are already finding them organically without using paid advertising…
All with super simple strategies!
That’s why I thought I gotta share this a bit more.

Crush Your Stress and Create Freedom in 4 Easy Steps
You ever notice that when you have a whole day ahead of you to do “whatever” not much gets done.
I think of my sisters, all retired. They say they don’t have time to do anything. All of their days are rolled out in front of them.
Having stuff booked in your calendar creates freedom!
It also reduces stress,
Of the B.E.S.T. Method this relates to the T, Time Saving Techniques.
How to Become a Manifesting MoFo in 3 Easy Steps
The universe moves its own building blocks – quantum particles – around depending on the information it receives and the certainty of that information. It is as scientific as it is spiritual. - David Cameron Gikandi
This stuff works. I mean it.
My method for manifesting great things in my life has been created by me using a mishmash of a bunch of stuff I have learned from quantum physics, Abraham Hicks, and my day-to-day strategies. This stuff takes discipline and it can be outrageously fun. In fact, if I wake up grumpy, low, or discouraged, I do this process because it completely changes my state. I completely changed.
I do this exact process probably 5 x per week. It works amazingly well. And the things I want to create in my life are showing up and are showing up with greater and great speed.
The kinds of things I have manifested are:
Fu*k Being Normal It Will Kill You
“I know you guys are students and poor, but please give if you can!”
This statement was said at a rally I attended during my undergrad. I remember nothing about the rally or what it was for, but I do remember that comment.
I have never been able to shake the sheer arrogance of that statement.
Being a full-time student felt like the most decadent existence ever.
Because I had been booted out of high school and commenced my undergrad as a “mature” student, I had spent the five years before working in bars, restaurants, and sketchy diners. “Do you want to talk about poor?!” I thought to myself, “Sister, you have no idea . . . “
I remember a friend saying to me (someone who I met at one of those sketchy bars), that the kind of people I hung out with would change. I thought no way, that’ll never happen.

When the WORST Happens!
Well, what is the WORST that can happen? I mean really?!
For lawyers, it can be that you are deeply embarrassed in front of your colleagues. I have way too many stories where I have deeply embarrassed myself, oh so many.
Finances that came crashing down . . . that was my worst too.
Yet, I had the opportunity this week to see a new absolute worst!
I did a launch this week and nothing, and I mean NOTHING worked despite huge best efforts.
Through my Be the BEST Divorce lawyer programs, I have been building this community of like-minded divorce lawyers. That is, other divorce lawyers that want to do great work, have great clients, make a great living, all the while being ethical and honoring the people we serve.
We all know the family law industry is broken and that brokenness impacts families in a huge way.
So, I decided to do a quick little 5-day complimentary program on Facebook to attract more of those like-minded divorce lawyers. PLUS, I love...
The C-word is sexist and it is insulting.
No, not C-U-N-T as the British say it to each other quite lightly.
No, not CUSTODY – had to say it (a bit of family law humor).
The C-word I am referencing is defined in dictionaries as an older woman primarily attracted to younger men for sexual relationships.
The C-word is a fucking sexist and derogatory term.
Despite the fact that she is a mega-star, founded her own production company, has completed a triathlon in less than 3 hours, established a non-profit organization, was the first Latin actress to earn over $1,000,000 for a role, and the only woman voted twice as the “sexiest woman of the year,” not even Jennifer Lopez (“Jlo”) is not immune from being called the C-Word. Even J-Lo gets called the C-word by popular media. Why? Because she has had the audacity to show up at famous people's events with a younger man.
It reminds me of years ago when I was at a nightclub with a friend of mine (she was in...
Who Are Your Rat People?
“Find your rat people” said a guy whose name I have completely forgotten.
Although I cannot remember the guy who taught me this concept, I have totally remembered the concept itself and the way he taught the concept.
Essentially, he was saying, find your “niche.”
Your Niche is your specialized segment of the clients you want to attract.
Essentially, drilling down from being a “Lawyer” to a “family law lawyer” to a “Family Law lawyer who acts for (name your kind of rat people)”
Let me explain!
As he was teaching this concept he was holding a couple of huge and very playful rats. He is a marketer who happens to LOVE rats. Not everyone loves rats. But he does and he has a couple of big fat friendly ones that he holds and cuddles on his videos. For some people, that is the grossest thing in the world. People who are terrified and grossed out by rats, are not is rat people. Guess what?! Those are not...
Stop Being a Better Lawyer - It Will Get You Nowhere
Back in the olden days when I was an articled student and baby lawyer, I was told that the best way to develop a successful law practice was by doing uncompromisingly great work. Be better than the next lawyer and you were sure to succeed.
That might have been the case in the 1990s and before, but to succeed you have to do a heck of a lot more than great work.
Being better than other lawyers, that is more prepared, more researched, and more knowledgeable than other lawyers may get great results for your clients, but being better is not what it takes to succeed.
Okay, um fine, you want to do great work for your clients. At the same time, there are oodles of smart lawyers doing great work for their clients.
I have always tried to be more prepared than my opponent. I have tried to be more organized. I know I have worked harder.
However, just because you are somewhat better (or even a lot better) than another divorce lawyer,...
