Now that I have your attention with these mouth watering donuts that a sweet client dropped by our office (darn you, Mr. S.--you know who you are! 😂)...
Have you ever felt like you are on the verge of a major break-through in your life?
That life is about to change in a majorly good way for you?
That your business is about to EXPLODE?
Well, I am feeling all of that today in both my personal and work life.
Following a major personal purge of “stuff” in my life—specifically, physical clutter and my time commitments—I have had more time to focus on what I want both my personal and business life to actually look like.
I’ve always believed that for the most part, we all have the ability to design the life we actually want to live.
Want to travel more? Then do it. Sure, you may need to save some money and rearrange some time commitments to do so but don’t use those things as an excuse to hold you back if it’s something you really want to do.
Want to spend more time with your family rather than at the office? Great. What needs to change to make that happen?
None of us are victims of our circumstances.
Sure, sh*% happens to all of us but it’s how we RESPOND to that stuff that determines our future.
Personally, I’ve set six personal priorities for my life this year and I’ve committed myself to saying NO to any activity or expense that does not align with those priorities.
Professionally, I have also set new business priorities for My Pink Lawyer® with a renewed focus on creating and delivering efficient and practical estate planning strategies and solutions to Florida families that not only make their lives easier, but also saves their loved ones oodles of time and money.
Recognizing that many families, especially younger families, do not believe they have the resources or the need to actually implement a written estate plan at this time of their lives, My Pink Lawyer® will soon be launching group estate planning workshops in which all attendees will leave with a basic (and legal!) estate plan in place for themselves, including a simple Will, guardian nominations for minor children, financial and medical powers of attorney.
These group estate planning workshops will be more cost effective than private client work and are designed for younger families to dip their toe in the proverbial estate planning waters.
We’ve tentatively planned the first workshop for Friday, May 3rd at Noon at our office. Shoot us an email (or reply to this one) if you are interested and we will provide you with more information as we firm up our plans for the workshop.
Of course our attorneys will also still be offering private estate planning strategy sessions to our clients.
If you are a business owner, here are some amazing books I am reading at the moment to both grow and scale our business:
- Clockwork by Mike Michalowicz (design your business to run itself)
- The 1-Page Marketing Plan by Allan Dib (the very best succinct book I have read on putting together a kick butt marketing plan for your business!)
- Free to Focus by Michael Hyatt (achieve more by doing less)
- The One Thing by Gary Keller & Jay Papasan (focus on one thing for amazing results)
Some folks are always happy with the status quo but, fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), I am not one of those people. Sure I am happy, but never completely satisfied. I have always looked for ways to grow in both my personal and professional life. Status quo is just not built into my DNA.
Which is good for you, my dear friend. So be looking for lots of new exciting changes coming from the pink bubble here at My Pink Lawyer® HQ.

P.S. I just have to share this amazing review that a new client, Caroline J., recently shared on Facebook:
"We had the greatest experience setting up our Will and Estate with Kristen! She’s got this spicy, energy that is just magnetic and it made the whole experience a true pleasure! Once you walk into their office, you feel a sense of happiness by all the pops of color on the walls and a cheerful staff! Presentation is everything to me and my first impression was fantastic. This office ROCKS! Kristen and Amanda guided us through estate planning with terms we could comprehend and we learned so much as we start to grow our family! We went back to grade school with their homework list to do’s which was super helpful as a new mom, running my own business and constantly having brain overload! It felt good to check those homework items off the list and report back to her with the items we had completed. This learning experience was exceptional and I couldn’t ask for a better attorney to walk me through this. I have already recommended many friends to My Pink Lawyer and would recommend anyone starting a family to set up an appointment with this wonderful team of attorneys. There is so much we don’t know on preparing ourselves for what life throws us and so thankful to have My Pink Lawyer guiding us through. A big thank you to Kristen, Amanda and her staff for making our Estate Planning Experience so great!"
