Rebooting the Blog

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 19:22:02 +0000

In January 2016 I’ll have been “writing” this blog for 12 years. I put “writing” in quotes because the truth is I’ve written it for nine, ignored it for two and abandoned it for one. It still gets a handful of visits every day, and I regularly dip into old posts for writing I do...

Meet My Invisible Girlfriend

Sat, 24 Jan 2015 01:34:37 +0000

Here’s the thing I’ve been spending some of time on for the last year.  I’ll be sharing the whole story soon, but wanted to share it here. We launched in public beta on Tuesday, and two days later made the Today Show (not to mention nearly every other national media outlet. It has been crazy, and cool....

Happy Holidays from My Team at Kendeo

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 23:02:53 +0000

Some of you may know about Kendeo, the design and strategy consulting company I own where I do all my ‘non-legal’ work.  I often tell people that “we draw pictures of hard-to-understand things,” and that’s pretty much true. We had some fun with our Holiday card this year and I really wanted to share it...

Give some silent time to introverted clients.

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 20:25:26 +0000

By some estimates, introverts make up nearly half of the population.  If you’re an extrovert, that means that many of your clients think and process information quite differently than you do. So what can you do to even the playing field and get the best from your introverted clients? Give them some silence. Next time you’re...

Welcome to the first edition of the NBH Weekender!  I’ve been saving up lots of stuff to share with you this week, so here you go: Five simple emails you should send every week.

Ask Better Interview Questions

Tue, 20 May 2014 12:58:58 +0000

Online retailer Zappos is well known for its commitment to company culture and customer service, going so far as to offer new hires $2000 after their first few weeks on the job to quit if they don’t like their new jobs.  They also share quite a bit about how they hire so well, and have posted their...

When do your biz clients update you?

Sun, 18 May 2014 00:01:11 +0000

There’s a web-based serviced called UpdateMyVC, which purports to automate a startup’s communication with its investors. What I really liked is the list of questions that get answered in the monthly update.  Here are a few: What milestones or accomplishments are you most proud of? What are the things you’re most disappointed about? How is...

Best of NBH: Autopsy Your Dead Files

Tue, 13 May 2014 12:06:12 +0000

Remember the television show Quincy?  Jack Klugman played a Los Angeles medical examiner, and in every episode, his autopsy would reveal that the decedent (who’d seemingly died of “natural” causes) was a victim of foul play.  Using the clues he’d gained from his examinations, Quincy would convince the police a homicide had occurred, and then manage...

Best of NBH: Create a Menu for Your Practice

Mon, 12 May 2014 18:03:19 +0000

This “Best Of” post comes from 2011 and is about creating a “Menu” for your practice offerings: Do you know all the kinds of things your firm does?  Perhaps you should take a page (literally) from the restaurant industry and create a “menu” of your services.  Though you may not decide to use it with...
