AMPLE EXAMPLE – Attorney to use – – Wes Carter.


  1. “I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Clark in 2010 when I managed over 2.2 million square feet of downtown office and retail space. I can recommend him highly and without reservation. I had hired Mr. Clark to rebrand the portfolio and reach out to prospective tenants. Throughout the course of the campaign, Mr. Clark was a consummate professional. He conducted market research, built a website, and coordinated obtaining pictures, print materials, and gaining media attention within what I would deem record time. Within the first week of Mr. Clark going public with the campaign, he generated hundreds of prospective tenants. Mr. Clark’s positive attitude is contagious, he is hard worker, and he is genuinely a great guy to work with. I hope that in the near future I will have the opportunity to work with Mr. Clark again.”

This is this is crazy, shaw homes they are getting now in the last 4 months, 12 times as many leads as they used to get internet leads, and why is that? Because they’re topping google the google retargeting ads that work very very well. Have a no-brainer, that. They just got all that they’re implementing all the systems and turns out I have a great product to nobody. Second, let me get this straight. They been in business how long over 30 years, over 30 years, why didn’t they do this is before i, don’t think they knew? Who is the chief marketing officer for the company? He thought I wonder why my competitor has hired click, clark i, wonder with. If, if, if i, we could get I really like mr.

You know what I’d rather work with the biggest company in oklahoma and a client that I’m working with his at capacity.

They literally cannot build any more homes based on the current crew. They don’t want to grow anymore. I brought up the conversation. Hey can we move on, they said sure, boom I’m working now with shaw homes, homes, it is unlikely. It is not probable. It is not going to happen you’re going to have that many homes that have what I mean some type of legal situation. You know that, even matter what research you look into, every business owner earn business and you’re doing over $1000000 a year of sales west carter, the attorney for joyce meyers brother td jakes for craig groeschel, life, church west.

Everything is hitting the fan, navigate to I’d like to magellan of litigation. I am 5 costly, weave around the mogul that would bring down other people, but for me I’m the titanic I’m, the king of the non-litigation boots and i. Let me blow up, but I’ve, never I’ve never stepped on a bob who’s. Listening who says, I don’t need an attorney i, don’t need to call one and find one in advance. What would you say to that?

If it’s going to happen because what happen, if you blow that report, then the one when it hits the fan when it gets all drama trauma when you get served up that lawsuit, which is your first, when you get service, is perhaps the worst day of your life, that’s not something we could relate to, but I’m sure somebody else has your. You really need help. Cantankerous guy I’m, just telling us when you feel like you, have an enemy in your own camp.

Is you look at somebody in the hour of triumph, and you say what is a record that says? How did you do it’s a lot of people realize that maurice kanbar he invented skyy vodka, and then he bought one third 27% of downtown tulsa, so he will say what would have been closer to a quarter. We actually bought other real estate holdings and he sold steps like now. It’s the downtown marriott, the atlas life building and he bought a ton of real estate coming in hard that dude bought a third of downtown tulsa before anybody was buying. I. Think that I think the snyders with the mayo hotel in mr. Cannon bard between those two it was like 45% of tulsa, was owned by two people in downtown. It was. It was so far to do all the marketing for his real estate, and so can you read us the the notable quotable here for mr. Jesse d cambridge properties. He says I had the pleasure of working with mr. Clark i, like that story 2 million square feet of downtown area office and retail space I can recommend him highly in without reservation. I had hired mr. Clark to rebrand the portfolio and reach out to prospective tenants throughout the course of the campaign.

Mr. Clark was a consummate professional. He conducted market research, build a website and print your coordinated, obtaining pictures, print material gaming media attention within what I would deem record time within the first week of mr. Clark, going public yassini generated hundreds of prospective tenants. Mr. Clark positive attitude is contagious is a hard worker and he was genuinely a great guy to work with I hope that in the near future, I will have the opportunity to work with mr. Clark again david atkinson one place llc. How do you get in the news? We got him a lot of news. Publicity lot of people say:i want to get in the news, but how do you getting the news. Here’s the deal? There’s a book called the pr bible pr 2.0 by michael levine. Do you put on the show notes? Okay, I already had read that book and i. Remember so many moves, but I thought to myself. Self I got to figure out what those moves are and seeing how I can apply into the situation. So what I did is I realized anytime. You make a big claim and you can back it by fax. You could probably get in the news on a slow news day announcing that can bar properties was going to read name. A certain area of tulsa sobo of argued is already called so, but I said. So what so? What so? What I said we’re going to rename it so go to sobo district, and if you get a chance to look this up here, I’ll put it in here. It’s kanbar properties, tulsa world I was able to get these guys in the media cuz. It’s such an easy story. It’s it’s a great story, but you can’t bar best business coaching program properties. Tulsa, type in fears. Clarkson can I see that the headlines it was so fun, so channel 6 free plans, downtown development in the, deco district and then I made this announcement. We’re going to rename it and call it the sobo so they’re like really, and so there it is. There am on the news and they’re like look at you you’re on the news, my mom, like you’re, on the nose.

What does explain we’re going to do we’re going to bring entertainment, dining and retail to downtown tulsa has previously downtown tulsa kind of sad and we’re going to bring entertainment dying retail. They said. Where did you get this information I said? Will the brookings institute did a study on urban renewal and they study the gaslamp district in san diego? They studied austin texas. Now found out that when you have a walkable, entertainment, dining and retail on a closed area proximity that people want to go there, that seems so. We were only going to lease space 2 companies like hello, tech, with a red like a root or wrestler downtown yeah. That’s cool! We’re looking to lease stuff too, like buildings in the bricktown area, where that’s at you on tv right there. It is it where does leasing space all day and it was fun. What happened? Is it weird that we, the media, was like downtown? Was hungry? People were hung during for a downtown to be thriving, and so I just got behind that I got to go for that parade right, right, downtown to be successful, go list, but in this case it was a dream. 3000 and I hired a taco bell put best business coaching program employee and I hired another taco bueno bueno. He called called every tenant downtown at the list and say hey:when is your lease expire I made it? They said like 6 months or less a year last, we said we’d like to invite you to an open house we’re doing at the top of the vindy, the chase tower. We have to show you all the space free, horderves food ice sculpture be awesome and we just signed the crap out of leases in the media. All the time we’re signing a floral shop, lisa bakery restaurant is awesome and I was right and it wasn’t. It wasn’t new ideas. I was just curious, but how did they make the gaslamp in san? Diego happen right and I got blocked and it could have been, and I ain’t got a bb king’s representative who said I will put a bb king’s down to 5th and boston in the guy.

Who does the it’s? The theater where you can have beer he’s like I’ll, do my theater? If they do their thing and then we had to howl at the moon, all three of them right there at 5th and boston were kinda, looks like manhattan, oh yeah, right there by the bartlett square thing we had three guys already do is sign sign. At the same time, and then one of them backed out last minute and then the other two, so they weren’t it was like it was like we had prepared. It would be like if you had howl at the moon it was on. It was awesome how at the moon baby kings I mean so good set the theater where you can have a beer, and we have a lot of water mojo going. But it starts with curiosity and someone ask us when you want to become a top attorney with one of the top firms in tulsa. How come you just said that you weren’t a partner I mean how come you just didn’t say:oh I’m, not a partner. How come you were curious, but how to do it as abest business coaching program? Why I’ve always had a curiosity? I was one of those people that to someone who had done well-and my first thought was how to do that, how to make your money had to do that and I have a good friend, justin graze. It tell it that always said knowledge. Plus application equals transformation, so not enough just to learn how I did it but didn’t like you said you have to figure out how to apply it to what you’re doing and then, if you can get both you suck up the knowledge you actually apply it to your situation.

Hahahahaha start getting on top of mountain tops and I want to learn more. You read a book by somebody who’s achieve greatness. They give you all their secrets away that you’re like trying to get when you’re around people that are not smart. They will also freely give you their opinion, as often as you can make them them opposition to anything, it’s a fact, but bill just attacked no. It’s not, you’ll see people they’re going off about the tyranny of a balanced budget and you’re like or people just going on and on and on about any quality about things we can’t control are going on and on about how it’s unbelievable to pro basketball players make more than teachers are really want to go best business coaching program stadium to watch the teacher constructing success, deconstructing success.
