Episode 32 of Building Your Law Practice with Jim Thompson and Nick Augustine
Budgets, law firm marketing and business development. Why are lawyers so bad at running their firms like successful businesses? One major flaw in the business of law is taking all the net proceeds as profit and zeroing out the year without building a marketing budget and reserve. Many say five percent of projected annual receipts should be allocated for annual advertising, marketing and publicity efforts.

In today's episode, we'll discuss why I don't believe in "Cookie Cutter" Budgets. Many financial gurus try to sell people on a one-size-fits-all formula of financial management, which is destined to fail for most who try it. I'll talk about why it's important to create a budget customized to your family's situation, needs, and goals. Yes, there are some overarching guidelines that are good for everyone to follow, but how those play out in your individual life are unique - and that's a good thing! I'll also answer listener questions about budgeting.

Are the seas becoming crowded with the mega ships
Gray (or grey) hairs, seniors, old farts or whatever you want to call us are literally "Saviors of Governmental Budgets". That's right. Without us there would be no balanced budgets, as many community projects or infrastructure improvements. Remember that the next time you say, or hear someone else give disparaging remarks about the elderly. Jump "In the Pickle Barrel" and get the facts.
Each and everyday we will try to find a way to get out of the pickle barrel we have all found ourselves sharing.

Did you know that December marks the season for engagements? Most engagements happen this time of year. Who knew? I actually got engaged (many moons ago in Dec as well hmm). Well congratulations to all those looking forward to a new life together. However, you have a big planning task ahead. Given the recent survey by the Knot.com, the average wedding cost in 2013 was $30K. I reached out to friend of the Divas -Kim Moss of Black Bag Productions for some help slashing that figure without sacrificing quality.

The Holidays are here--it’s my personal favorite time of year! The decorations, the lights, the Christmas music and movies truly bring joy to my heart.
It’s the shopping, wrapping, shoving, traffic, blowing budgets, baking, over eating, family drama, and remembering deceased loved ones that causes the stresses!
On this week’s (pre-recorded) show, Dan and I will share ways to avoid these holiday crazies, and to bring comfort and Joy to your holiday season.

Personal and professional situations, which changed my life, include 42 years with the US Department of Defense at home and abroad in Europe and Japan. I met people from all walks of life and all areas of religion and spirituality. Recognition of the power of the Individual Human Being, realization of the impact each of us can make and demonstrating the power of the Divine within caused me to realize I am so fulfilled when working with and around people.
Managing budgets amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars and working with universities and various contractors taught me to manage multiple challenges. Adversity when managing business loss, bankruptcy and the challenges of righting my course of life has also challenged me. I honor all the role models I have worked with and who have shown me such profound lessons.
I helped people, whose lives had been altered by the death of a loved one, including war deaths in several wars. I stood at the Berlin Wall as it fell and worked to negotiate relationships for five years afterward. Back in the U.S., I watched as people lost homes due to financial woes, helping those people work through loss and realize new avenues.
Hobby: Writing and learning about people and the impact of spiritual learning. Building a new program and website, www.anewviewofeternity.com Volunteer: I volunteer for programs helping wounded warriors and first responders.
