Ask Dr. Bunny. How do sales and communication relate to your personal life? John Baillie, guest.

John Baillie, Founder and CEO of JB Broadcasting, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss communication, sales and service. John has a had long career in sales and shares valuable information, ideas and stories that will get you thinking!

Even though many people say they are not salespeople, the truth is that we are all sales people – sales is part of our everyday life! Selling an idea to a parent? Selling your point of view to a friend? Think about that for a moment.

John says the greatest attribute a salesperson can have is to be a good listener. Ask questions and get as much information as you can. Listen to what the other person wants. Hear their needs. Listen with the intention of learning, not with the intention of waiting for your turn to talk. In that way, you can know what your customer (or friend or family) wants.

What does John think is the hardest sales job?

Why does John say failure is good?

What kind of contract did John make with his kids?

Tune in and learn these answers and more!

Ask Dr. Bunny. Fire? Mudslide? How can I prepare? Jann Huling and Alma Vargas, guests

The devastating recent Thomas Fire and Montecito mudslides have left us all with many questions. If you are someone who lost everything, how do you recover? If you did not lose everything, how do you prepare for the next disaster or emergency?

Jann Huling and Alma Vargas, from Service Master, join Dr. Bunny to discuss how to prepare for an emergency, and how to find help if you have been a victim of the recent disasters.

Jann and Alma give incredibly valuable tips on preparation and getting things organized for any potential disaster. This interview is loaded with info that you need to know!

You could be in a good place in your life right this minute, but a tragedy could come in 24 hours. Think about that for a minute – within 24 hours you could potentially be homeless. For most of us, that is very hard to imagine, but use that knowledge to prepare now.

Here are just a few tips that Jann and Alma share:

– Have everything in one location – birth certificates, marriage certificates, family photos.

– Have extra water, pet food, easy food items (nothing that needs a can opener or has to be cooked) stored in your garage, or vehicle.

– Take a look around your home. What items are most important to you? What are the necessities that you would need immediately, if you had to evacuate. What items would be most important to save if you lost your house?

– Sit down with your family. Make a list of the things you have and where it’s located. Each person should have their own spot where their valuables & important items are located, so that it is easily accessible if you need to evacuate at a moment’s notice. Make a plan & go through it with the whole family.

– If you do have valuables in your house, make sure they are listed with your insurance – rings, jewelry, guitars, even wine!

– Keep in mind that, if you lost your home to a disaster, it is up to you to prove what you owned. It is an excellent idea to video each room in your house. Open drawers where valuable items are located and make a video of the contents. Keep this video in a safe place, and make a duplicate of it to keep in a different, safe, location. A video showing the contents of your home will be immensely helpful if you were to lose everything in a disaster.

Tune in and learn more! Stay safe & be prepared!!

Ask Dr. Bunny. New Year, New Laws? Roy Schneider, guest.

Attorney Roy Schneider, senior partner of Schneider and Associates, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss the new laws that went into effect on January 1, 2018.

Each year brings new laws and this year is no exception. From requiring changing tables in men’s restrooms, to the multitude of new labor laws, Roy shares lots of valuable information on what is new, and what has changed.

Labor law is one main focus in Roy’s practice. California’s labor laws can be complex and employers need to know what to do to protect themselves. One of the best things that any employer can do is to make sure they have an up-to-date employee handbook, because it covers the laws and answers a lot of the questions.

If there is ever a problem and an employee makes a complaint to the Labor Commissioner, the Labor Commissioner will want to see the handbook, so employers need to make sure they have the most current handbook.

Roy discusses the changing minimum wage, how minimum wage differs with number of employees (and location!), and what an exempt employee actually is. The details of these laws in California are astounding and can be very confusing.

The new laws also outline what questions can be asked during an interview or on an application.

What are the new laws regarding family leave? What is sexual harassment training? Gender neutral restroom requirements? Tune in and find out these answers & more!

This is a fascinating interview, filled with information that all employers, and employees, need to know!

2018 Employment Law Update seminar January 24, 2018: 

Attorneys Roy Schneider and Theodore Schneider will present the 2018 Annual Employment Law Update. Topics will include new laws, regulations, and court rulings that will affect employers in 2018.

About Snoopy (from Wikipedia):

Snoopy is Charlie Brown’s pet beagle in the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz. He can also be found in all of the Peanuts movies and television specials, like The Peanuts Movie. Since his debut on October 4, 1950, Snoopy has become one of the most recognizable and iconic characters in the comic strip. The original drawings of Snoopy were inspired by Spike, one of Schulz’s childhood dogs.

Snoopy and Charlie Brown were ranked by TV Guide as the 8th greatest cartoon characters of all time.

Snoopy appeared on the October 4, 1950, strip, two days after the first strip. He was called Snoopy for the first time a month later, on November 10. On March 16, 1952, his thoughts were first shown in a thought balloon. Snoopy first appeared upright on his hind legs on January 9, 1956, when he was shown ice-skating across a frozen lake.

Despite his history of conflicted loyalties and his inability to remember Charlie Brown’s name (he refers to him as “that round-headed kid”), Snoopy has shown both love and loyalty to his owner. He joins Charlie Brown in walking out of a game of Ha-Ha Herman when Peppermint Patty insults Charlie Brown, unaware that Charlie Brown is within earshot. He also helps Charlie Brown recover his autographed baseball when a bully takes it and challenges Charlie Brown to fight him for it. When Charlie Brown has to stop dedicating himself to making Snoopy happy, Snoopy replies, “Don’t worry about it. I was already happy.” In The Peanuts Movie, Snoopy remains loyal to Charlie Brown, supporting and caring for him throughout the movie.

In early Peanuts strips, Charlie Brown was not Snoopy’s owner (as seen in the February 2, 1951, strip), and it was initially not clear who his owner actually was. The September 29, 1951 strip implied that Snoopy was owned by Shermy. Charlie Brown was first portrayed as being responsible for Snoopy in the strips of November 1 and 3, 1955; it was not until September 1, 1958 that Snoopy was specifically said to be Charlie Brown’s dog.

Ask Dr. Bunny. How can we diminish children’s suffering? Christine Crockett-Smith, guest

Christine Crockett-Smith joins Dr. Bunny in Santa Clara, California, at Brendan Burchard’s World’s Greatest Speaker seminar, to discuss parenting, bullies, diminishing the suffering of children and two very special projects.

The first project is a book that Christine wrote called “18 Master Values – Be The Parent You Wish You’d Had” . It comes from her own chaotic childhood and seeks to help parents. Christine calls on every parent to look at every single thing they’ve been told or taught, see which things are dissonant, (and give themselves permission to let those things go), and which things resonate, (and give themselves permission to seek and find out more about that).

Christine’s second project is a very special conference coming up on March 10, 2018. It is called “The Power Of One Conference – Encouraging conscious living by celebrating those who are living consciously”.

For each ticket sold, one will be provided to a person who is using their time, talent, money, gifts and energy to make the world a better place, but would not be able to afford to purchase a ticket at this time.

About “The Power Of One Conference – Encouraging conscious living by celebrating those who are living consciously”:

Come join us for the day and mix and mingle with extraordinary human beings who are consciously choosing to change the world. There will be speakers, interviews and panels sharing cutting edge stories about:

• Conscious Capitalism
• Healthcare
• Education
• The Environment
• Social Justice
• Parenting

Some of the topics are too big for just one person! For these, we’ll have three panelists and a moderator who will get the most out of the synergy that these people create. Check back periodically to see what new stories are being added!

Everyone has a story, but not everyone wants to stand up and deliver it alone. We’ll have several guest interviewers getting the most out of guiding some of our guests as they share how they came to be who they are, and how they’re changing the world.

Why Power of One?
During the 2016 United States presidential election, conference host, Christine Crockett Smith, was safely out of the country. She was appalled as she witnessed all of the people back home hurling vitriol back and forth at each other, with such intense energy. She finally started telling them that if they would all just wake up in the morning and consciously decide to direct all of that energy towards something that pulled at their heartstrings instead of politics – whether it’s helping old people, poor people, young people or puppies – the world would be a better place. Sharing that thought made her realize that if everyone would do that, all the world’s problems would be solved. It was then she started becoming joyfully aware of all of the people who were doing just that.
In addition, she hopes the videos from the conference highlighting all of these amazing humans can help inspire young people to identify their own talents and gifts, and to embrace the concept that they, too, can choose to change the world.

How are the speakers chosen?
As soon as the idea became strong enough that it HAD to become a reality, people began to show up. There are so many wonderful people doing such good work in the world! And everyone living consciously knows others who are as well. The choices were made to keep the day as diverse and rich as possible. Unfortunately, there are way more people doing good work in the world than we have time for this year. That’s why we’ve already started putting the slate together for 2019! If you know of anyone who might like to share how they are changing the world, we’d love to hear about them! We’ll be sure to reach out and if they’re a good fit, perhaps we’ll have them on the stage at the next event.

The conference will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 10th at the Palace Theater in Grapevine, Texas. The day will end at 5:00 p.m.  Sponsor parties will be held both Friday and Saturday evenings.

Ask Dr. Bunny. Can kids be helped by a mentor? Jim McGinley, guest

Jim McGinley joins Dr. Bunny in Santa Clara, California, at Brendon Burchard’s World’s Greatest Speaker seminar, to discuss a very inspirational story.

Jim’s story begins with hope, or actually, lack of hope. Jim’s son, Ryan, who was a freshman in high school at the time, had been sick for about a month and was very behind. Ryan felt like there was no hope of ever getting caught up and finishing his school year. Jim mentored his son through this whole process of completing his school work, one step at a time, and watched his son go from being despondent and hopeless, to being a positively charged & inspired young man. Ryan went on to proceed through high school with amazing grades and even graduated college with honors!

Jim has learned that if you give a person the “Why”, they will will figure out the “How”!

When Ryan saw that Jim believed in him, he believed in himself. It was quite a learning experience and Jim realized that all kids need someone to believe in them, and someone to tell them they CAN DO IT!

It’s amazing what young people can achieve when they realize there’s someone behind them, rooting for them & saying “You can do it!”.

An inspiring & uplifting story!
