THIS IS KIND OF A BIG DEAL
Here's the thing. I hate being sold to, and I hate selling. I am the first to hit unsubscribe and tell American companies who don't have functional unsubscribe buttons that they are breaching the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007 (poor Americans; their consumer laws are terrible). I send clients to other lawyers if I think they will be a better fit. When it comes to marketing (shudder), I am all about permission marketing and opting in: you only hear from me if you want to. Like, really want to. You have to invite me in, and if you ask me to leave, I'm out the door.
This is great, usually, because it means I can be confident that my lovely mailing list and Facebook page are full of people who want to be there, and who aren't there out of obligation.
But now I am creating this package to help people feel confident without lawyers, and I think it could be a game changer. I think that something that helps people feel more confident in contentious disputes could ease a tonne of suffering, and even spark joy. I feel totally alive as I create it, and it feels like swimming in a delicious cool azure pond to imagine handing over all of this "insider" information and frameworks and notions to lay people so that they can take control of disputes for themselves. Applying what I'm putting in this thing could save you thousands of dollars in lawyers' fees. Literally thousands of dollars. But more than that it could empower you out of fear and despair.
So I seriously believe in what I'm making, and I am both terrified and exhilarated to release it to the world (next week!).
But now I'm in a strange place of having this thing I think will add immense value to people's lives, but not wanting to pester people about it because I loathe being sold to.
So here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to keep writing my blog posts about all manner of things related to law, business and life. But at the bottom of each one I'm going to include some information about the package, what it means, what it does, where you can get it. Then those that want to can stop reading after the core post, and everyone else can read on for the juicy details of the seminar series. And if some of you feel lit up by the package and what it could mean to someone you know going through a dispute, maybe you'll share it with them. Let me know if you do and I'll send you a personal note of thanks.
Launch day: Thursday September 17, 2015, 7pm
I am super out of this world excited to give formal notice of the launch date for the Symphony Law DIY Disputes Package Seminar launch. I'll be releasing full details next Thursday, including where and how you can buy tickets, but for now just keep the date in mind. It will be a two hour session with lots of joy and laughs, muffins, a Q&A, and a LOT of hard-hitting, finely-tuned tips and strategies for managing disputes without lawyers.
The first seminar will be subject to a one-off super special price because I will be asking the attendees for help to hone and develop the seminar and written materials even further.
Wow, this feels really special. Stay tuned for next week's full update.
