Written Podcast Transcription:
Introduction: Welcome to the Enchanting Lawyer Podcast. The show that walks you step by step to improving strategies you can use today to grow your business. We show you how being kind, useful and, of course, enchanting will bring you more clients and build a thriving community. Now here’s your host from sunny San Diego, Jacob Sapochnick.
Jacob: Hello everybody, this is Jacob here with the Enchanting Lawyer podcast. This is a show where we interview the most inspiring entrepreneurs, business people, and just amazing thought-leaders from all over the world that share their ideas with us and help us do better at what we do every single day.
Again, the world tour continues. We had a couple of experts. Last week we spoke to an Israeli amazing expert, a week before we had a French guy and today we have a person from Australia. I have the great honor to have Martin Shervington.
He’s a Google+ expert, he’s a consultant, he’s a very, very gifted blogger and he’s just one of those guys that understands the art of building communities. I learned recently that he has a law degree and a lot of our listeners are attorneys and professionals so I’m honored and excited to have Martin here in the show. Welcome Martin, how are you today?
Martin: I’m very good, Jacob. And I want to say – because people are going to go, “Why does he have a British accent?” I’m a brit but I did live in Australia after I graduated for a couple of years. I’m actually Welsh.
Jacob: You’re Welsh? Perfect. The world tour continues and now we have a Welsh. But I’m correct that you have a law degree. Were you an attorney or you just went to law school?
Martin: No, I have a law and business joint on this and I did my post-grad in Organizational Psychology.
Jacob: Beautiful. So you are one of us.
Martin: Yeah, almost. Almost, yeah.
Jacob: Very good, Martin.
