Quick-Show Notes:

In this episode of The Millionaire’s Lawyer, JP and David Young discuss:

Since the last time that David was on the show, Covid-19 has really made a change to how all businesses flow.

Whole industries and client groups have been affected and a massive shift has occurred.

For example, Interior Designing: 

-Used to be getting one or two things to decorate your house

-Now, it has shifted into making your home your nest, it is the place you are now the majority of the time and people want it to express who they are.

There are two things that businesses cannot afford:
  1. Loose Messaging
  2. To run 1 mile wide by 1 inch deep.
    • Entrepreneurs have to get laser-focused on what it is that moves the needle.

Get paid for who you are

Name that mouse! People always like to point out the elephant in the room, but no one ever likes to point out the mouses!

What is a mouse?
    • David explains it best, it’s like the elephant but much smaller!
      • ie. could be asking why someone was 5 minutes late, or acknowledging that “oops, my phone is ringing and I am sorry”
      • The mouse allows you to bring that person into your reality for a second, get a closer look at who you are and how your perceiving things.

Being able to point out that mouse in the room allows you to have more impact on the person you are talking with.

David Young shares the Three Big Buckets:
  1. Productivity
