Rob Kates and I had a delightful time with our guest today EJ Stern Bearman! Thank you, Amber Bollman, for introducing us! Yes, there were shenanigans aplenty, but, before I turn to those, give this a watch for the heartfelt, authentic, wise counsel EJ provides on professional and personal development, the magic of knowing oneself, understanding your own gifts (and challenges), and finding those moments of connection that build successful business development relationships. We talk about using your energy to your advantage, introversion versus extroversion, and how DEI is such a crucial consideration in creating an environment where people can find fulfillment and optimal performance in life and in work.

As for shenanigans … My dad Don Sexton joins us as I thank him for the Lincoln Home National Historic Site surprises I received in today’s mail. Rob celebrates Cinco de Mayo in his inimitable way. We learn a new prank in asking Alexa to play unsolicited show tunes in our guests’ homes. We review the positive impact life upon the wicked stage had on our formative years. We address the joys (and occasional sadnesses) of having four-legged friends. We note how important participation trophies can be in helping some of us feel seen and validated. We give a shout out to Mother’s Day, Janet Jackson, mental health awareness month, #itsokaytonotbeokay, Led Zeppelin, Kroger runs, Encanto, Ricky Martin, and The Ramones.

Oh, and Susan C. Freeman, we give two plugs for Freeman Means Business’ #EmpoweredWomen2022 in Chicago on June 2: https://freemanmeansbusiness.com/empoweredwomen-events

And Lynn Foley, fSquared Marketing, Terry Isner, and Legal Marketing Association – LMA International, we remind everyone to complete this important mental health / wellness survey: https://fsquaredmarketing.com/legal-marketing-mental-wellness-survey-report/?fbclid=IwAR2V23OYftnv7Nm_RuVqgmbjuvM_etnyH5D98mcMktTXR3DULFpphOix7Cw

Whew! #LMAmkt

P.S. Glen Hanson and HunTees, I’m wearing another one of your fab shirts!

P.P.S. My dad has another letter in Downbeat! They need to make him a columnist! ❤️
