Kelly Rippon - Parent Up
A Little About Kelly RipponKelly Rippon started her consulting company, Authentic Change, Inc., in 2006 with the mission of “Changing the world one conversation at a time.” She's traveled extensively across Asia, Europe, and throughout the United States speaking to and interviewing hundreds of people about how the influences they met had shaped their perspectives. Those conversations combined with her work as a college instructor, corporate trainer, and single mother of six incredible children, including her oldest son, Olympic medalist, Adam, prompted her to write, "PARENT UP" (Sourcebooks 2020) an empowering book about developing an effective leadership perspective while building resiliency, empathy, and optimism. While Kelly wrote her book through the eyes of a parent, but she adopts the concepts to meet the audience's needs and notes that living each day as an effective leader elevates personal competency and can be a gateway to the next level of success. She shares stories that offer a fresh outlook that link the reader to their positive influential power. Kelly also offers actions and behaviors that increase credibility and grow positive habits while also helping us recognize the need to discard the negative influences that work against us. In this episode of The Millionaire's Lawyer, JP and Kelly Rippon discuss:Kelly is an educator turned traveler who used to go around giving seminars on work/life integrationShe had noted that in the Legal Industry there is a lot of ridge people, a lot of tight deadlines, and it really affects how the team operates. When this happens they really need to rely on non-verbal communications and body language.Kelly mentions to not allow your staff to be "surprise attacks", have a time or two a day where up connect with your team in a little "huddle"; this will allow you to keep your train of thought.Schedule times with your staff to sit down and talk with them; this will elevate a lot of the pressures and stresses throughout the day.Remove the verbal communication, have a bunch of non-verbal cues that the whole staff is aware of, Kelly states this will allow for more clarity.There was a corporate shift that Kelly noted with COVID-19, they are as follows:Short and simpleConciseEfficient and to the pointNo analogies, no examples, no side storiesGood leadership is good parenting; Good parenting is good leadership.Good leaders will teach people how to be a leader instead of teaching them how to follow.Kelly states that good leaders provide feedback in a "going forward" way.For example, if someone is late all the time mention that this is not in character for them, ask if something is going on, and say something along the lines of "Showing up at 9:10 every day really impacts the progress of the office since part of our meeting is missed, going forward if you could be on time it would be greatly appreciated."When you say "going forward" it gives off the impression of forgiveness to the employeeWhen asked about Habits, Kelly says:Actions develops behaviorBehavior develops habitHabit develops characterCorporations are really developing into the "Wellness" aspect of things and making it a great focus.Walking Meetings20 minutesBest ideas are found to come from theseNo more than 3 staffbring a recorder instead of pen and paperbrainstorm while all other sensories are being activated as wellCorporate Training has evolved from webinars to seminars, and now finally settling in on Zoom calls and the efficiency of it is tremendousThe Women's ConferenceWork-life integration"Breaking Scrub"Make sure to do something every day that helps activate all of your sensors, once all of your senses are activated it allows you not to worry.Smile File, is a great tool that Kelly mentions and uses herself to shift her mood into a positive oneGood memoriesCelebrationsEven could play music while looking through themTIP OR TRICK!Everything is temporary, so enjoy it.Connect with Kelly Rippon:InstagramTwitterWebsiteLinkedInBookConnect with your host, JP:TwitterInstagramFacebookWebsiteShow:LinkedInEmail: firstname.lastname@example.orgPhone: 1-833-890-8878THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSOR:Conduct LawWebsite

Stephan encourages people to take a step back, and evaluate their situation; and note all possible options.JP starts to talk about how things are changing with COVID-19 and how a lot of stuff is shifting online including the educational sector. Stephan May has a connection with Teachers and mentioned that:Online high school seems to be here to stayThis is great for those who can self teachHorrible for those who need the direction and aidGrades used to be diverse, now it is either high grades or near failingTeachers will still have jobs - they don't need to worrkParents still want that talk with the teachers on how their student is learningTeachers can only grade so much, and care for/ note problems for so many.There is no such thing as a "one size fits all" for education, people learn differently.Things are changing, and things are going to continue to change as time goes on.Be adaptableChange with the timesPeople will revert back to habitual routines, which is most likely to cause more of a "hybrid" society moving forward.It is perfectly okay to be a successful entrepreneur without the goal of becoming the next big millionaire. Stephan states that there are so many successful businesses that arent billionaires and they are perfectly happy where they are at!If you are planning on selling or purchasing a business, make sure you plan properly!Stephan advises that it is best to create the plan before actioning anything. If you prepare yourself for a sale and have all your ducks in a row you will be valued more and have a better transaction at the end of it.Just because you are ready to sell your business, does not mean the right buyer is ready. It is okay to let a few offers go, because there might be one coming that is worth it. Listen to Stephans story to be inspired!An issue that keeps Stephan May up at night is:Inequality GapThe rich stay rich, the poor get poorer.TIP AND TRICKsomeone has already figured it out, you can tooBe informed with the correct informationMake sure to understand both sides of the situation Connect with Stephan MayWebsiteLinkedInConnect with your host, JP:TwitterInstagramFacebookWebsiteShow:LinkedInEmail: email@example.comPhone: 1-833-890-8878THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSOR:Conduct LawWebsite

That puts on an enormous amount of pressure and leads to you never feeling fulfilled with what you got.Intentional LegacyWanting to achieve something greaterNoting that you have everything you already need to achieve that peace.Vera says to stop striving for more money! Make enough that you are happy, comfortable, and at peace. More money doesn't mean that everything will be better, it could just lead to more unnecessary stress and toxicity.Focus on the good clientele that you already currently have. You know you enjoy working with them, you know they are a good client. When you keep looking for more and more you end up neglecting the ones you have but also end up with so much more unnecessary stress and toxicity.Health is a good place to start. If you are not healthy, you cannot conduct yourself for success if you are not setting your body up to happily withhold it Figure out the root cause of your stresses are, and then slowly, day by day, make the changes. This will lead to a big difference that you will note, but an easy transition to get thereVera tells everyone to get out of the state of limbo you are in!

Smelling? What visually do you remember?Paul feels as though people need to learn how to be more intuitive, listen to what their gut is saying because there is probably some sub-conscious reasoning to the intuition.There are two types of people in the world:Very good spellers, and bad spellers.This comes down to different ways of being taught.A sequence of Representations:VisualAudioPaul Scheele outlines the following are the tiers to your consciousness:Reflective Consciousness - you are able to weigh both sidesPrimary Consciousness - sensory awarenessPeripheral Consciousness - outside the center of attention, which you are only dimly aware ofSquiggly line - your subconscious.It's best to have a growth mindset, once you are open to growth, you are open th learning and being aware of moreSo often your host JP and Paul have heard business owners say that they are in their 11th hour and need help. Once they start relying on their intuition they end up turning the direction of the business around and are quite successful. The feeling of being Overwhelmed:When you are overwhelmed you experience narrowing of:AttentionThinkingMemoryDiscussionYou enter tunnel visionHave less access to your intuitionFreeze responseFight or flightConfusionWhen you get the feeling of being overwhelmed, just breath.Take a deep breath, let the shoulders drop. Realize you are in a safe place.Check your emotions, make sure you feel as though you belong thereManage your state, and be mindful, when you are, you have more access to the resources in your head.When you are stressed about a situation, imagine yourself after the event, how it was successful, how you feel. Grasp that feeling. Now come back to your present self and recreate what had happened.Doing this also allows your subconscious to be aware of what you are trying to achieve and allows it the grab onto those resources rather than the negative ones you were originally feeling.Your conscious-mind sets the goal, but it is your subconscious mind that is the one that achieves it.People build up this Immunity to change which makes them nervous and afraid to try something different. Try your best to not allow this to stop you from thriving.Tip of the Day!There is a genius within you.

Brent Kesler - Building Wealth with Your Debt!
Quick-Show Notes:A Little about Brent Kesler:The Money Multiplier teaches how money really works with a 200-year-old concept. Instead of storing your paycheck at your local bank and letting the bankers lend out your money (and make a good living off it!), learn how you can become your own banker and how to be in control of your hard-earned dollars.The Money Multiplier is strictly educational. You determine whether you want to act with the information we provide. Brent Kesler, the founder of The Money Multiplier, used this concept to pay $984,711 of third-party debt in 39 months without having to work any harder, change his cash flow, or take any additional risks. Brent will show you how to get all the money back for all products and services you will ever buy for you and your family, for the rest of your lifeIn this episode of The Millionaire’s Lawyer, JP and Brent Kesler discuss:Building wealth from your own debts and expensesEveryone, including yourself, has the power to be their own banker.Brent added one step to his purchases which resulted in him being able to pay off over 900K of debt in 3 years and 3 months.You do not have to work harder to pay off your debt, you just have to be smart with where you are allocating your money.Brent suggests using the following Machine:Whole Life Insurance Policies in a Mutual Company that pays dividends.Investopedia breaks down this method as follows:Life insurance can be a useful financial tool for business owners or individuals with a higher net worth, as well as people who may not have accumulated as many assets.It's possible to purchase more than one life insurance policy to meet different financial needs, though this can mean submitting to multiple paramedical exams during underwriting.Life insurance policies are not counted as part of an estate and are not taxed by the federal government, which may appeal to individuals who are hoping to minimize estate taxes.A life insurance policy can be sold for its cash value or you can borrow against accumulated cash value during your lifetime.
