    There is an element of anticipation when we schedule to attend a networking event when you know some good people who are going to be there. Attending the events are fun too, and often include food and drinks. It’s not so bad to get caught up in the social aspect of it all, but we all intend to get down to business. Today we talk about how to get more out of networking events and start turning them into business opportunities by planning an active approach.

    Flora Reigada,Where Your Heart Meets God's

    in Books

    If God had something to say to you, how would you know and what might He say? You may be surprised to find God's words of love hidden like jewels in everyday life, but also where we need to search and dig. Recognizing these heavenly messages can be compared to finding hidden treasure, one jewel at a time, each with many facets to explore. Where Your Heart Meets God's can help you discover this priceless treasure of the heart. Open the pages and begin an everlasting adventure in hearing and experiencing God. "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matthew 6:21, NIV).


    Flora Reigada's assignments as a correspondent for several newspapers including the Florida Today and now for Senior Life, brought her and photographer-husband, Dan, to many interesting people and places.


                People include the chef to NASA astronauts and the historian whose passion for history was born in an old, overgrown cemetery.


                Flora has also explored forests, nature trails, art shows, vintage theaters, Victorian homes and a castle, the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida. 


                While on assignment at a ranch, she was nearly trampled by a spooked horse that had just thrown its rider.


                Even so, "it has been an adventure and a privilege," Flora said.


                In her spare time, Flora is head chef, broom and mop operator extraordinaire in her home.


                She and Dan are proud parents and grandparents.  The New York natives now live in Central Florida.

    in Legal

    Episode 47 of Building Your Law Practice with Jim Thompson and Nick Augustine


    Most of us attend some regularly scheduled networking events and social mixers. Have you considered hosting your own event? People who invite their business friends and colleagues to these types of events are perceived as influencers. You can host an event on your own or with others to increase the invitation list. Once you throw the first event the second and third should be better and better.

    John Carver Show - The Kill Switch (Og Mandino)

    in Self Help

    Augustine (Og) Mandino was down on his luck and ready to end his life but chose to read a book instead of shooting himself.  Later in life he told many audiences, "I am certain that only a few of you realize we have a "kill switch" [i.e. referring to the ability to shut down all functions of a car upon exiting as a block against theft]. It gets pushed whenever someone puts us down or harshly criticizes our best efforts or makes fun of us...ridicule, scorn, slights, insults....they all hurt and often their toll is so great that the little confidence we had managed to build up disappears until we finally stop trying to do better.....Just don' let it happen to you anymore. Don't push any more kill switches when you are with your kids and never, never let anyone push yours....Never again give anyone permission to rain on your parade." 


    On this show you will hear the late Og Mandino, in his slow soft voice, share some of the keys in you keep moving forward regardless of the hard times in your life.


    I love his wisdom.  In one of his books he writes:


    “How do I change? 
    If I feel depressed I will sing. 
    If I feel sad I will laugh. 
    If I feel ill I will double my labor. 
    If I feel fear I will plunge ahead. 
    If I feel inferior I will wear new garments. 
    If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice. 
    If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come. 
    If I feel incompetent I will think of past success. 
    If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals. 
    Today I will be the master of my emotions.”

    Tips on following up with new people you meet at social and networking events

    in Legal

    Episode 44 of Building Your Law Practice with Jim Thompson and Nick Augustine


    Let’s get back to the basics of social and business interactions and focus on following up with people we want to know, like and build trust. Too often people act like robots by going to events, giving a canned speech about themselves to another person, giving away their business cards and asking for others. Many bring the collection of new business cards back to simply set them on a pile and leave them to collect dust. Break the cycle and get to really know them.

    Growing your Referral Partner Network

    in Legal

    Episode 42 of Building Your Law Practice with Jim Thompson and Nick Augustine


    Referrals are the best source of business for many lawyers. When someone we know, like and trust gives out our name to an individual looking for our services, and there is already an endorsement, we are more likely to earn business from the prospective client. Referrals can come from current and past clients, but also from people in what we call the Referral Partner Network. Today we talk about setting up reciprocal relationships with client referral partners.
