Lawyer Become a Trusted AdvisorOne of the first tasks I have my clients undertake is a sample file audit.

Here’s how it goes:

We pull ten files at random from the past year.

I ask who the client was - name, job responsibilities, etc.

Then I ask what role he (or she) plays in the company, community, and/or industry.

Next I ask what issue is keeping him awake at night.

Finally I ask when the last time my client spoke with his client was.

I only have to get through three or four files before the client realizes that he is sitting on a goldmine.

Here’s the problem you (and most other business people) face:

You don’t know how to transition from being a functional professional into being a trusted advisor.

You don’t ask the right questions and then you don’t know what to do with the answers you receive.

Today is your lucky day.

I have prepared an audio program that pulls back the curtain on how to become the person your best client cannot live without.

That’s right.

I lay it all out for you in 20 minutes.

WARNING: To execute this system you may need to dedicate some time to past clients and you will not be able to bill for it. This means if you work in a firm that charges by the hour (like a car mechanic, a parking garage or a lady of the night) you will probably never become a trusted advisor.  Ah, it’s probably just as well, anyway.

Here’s the audio program that gives you a glimpse into how you can do research like a pro and become the person you clients call when they don’t know who else to call.

How People Judge You

Talk is cheap.

Actions speak louder than words.

These expressions have been around for as long as anyone can remember. They become commonplace because they are true.

People judge you based upon the expectation you set and the action you take. This week I drive this point home in this article.

Sometimes, action is the only thing that separates winners from losers.
