Ben helps his clients reach their full potential. Whether it was helping out in his parent’s flower shop in California or building retail stores in New York, Ben learned firsthand that the best product in the world means nothing unless you have the right people to make it and sell it. Indeed, in any competitive market, a company’s success depends on its ability to build multi-disciplinary teams. Companies that fall back on outdated assumptions risk being surpassed by those who recognize the potential in diverse workforces. When it comes to providing legal services, Ben puts these principles into practice. Whether it’s a Norwegian company looking for a foothold in the U.S. or an entrepreneur working in her basement to perfect seaweed harvesting techniques, clients benefit from Ben’s well-rounded approach to problem-solving.

Mindful of his pre-law experiences, Ben took to his legal studies with a unique sense of perspective. With the help of his professors at Vanderbilt University Law School, Ben crafted a course of study designed to explore specific business challenges from a legal perspective. The result of this intensive study was a series of articles discussing novel approaches to business problems by combining proven business principles with highly sophisticated legal tactics. Many of those articles have been published in leading trade publications and they form the basis of Ben’s practice today.

Whether it is to a jury or a group of concerned business owners, Ben loves speaking about the law. He is as comfortable in a courtroom as he is in a boardroom and his passion for good ideas pervades every case he argues, and every article he writes.

When not at work, Ben can be found on the water racing sailboats or cruising around in his vintage 1959 Lyman Sleeper. Yes, he restored it himself (ask him to show you a picture).

Stadium Status

Business as usual is ancient history. Large corporations, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and even CEOs and politicians must make the move from simply selling a product or service to delivering a mind-blowing customer experience. They have to learn to play at the level athletes and entertainers call stadium status.

Stadium status is that elusive place every coach, athlete, entertainer, and performer strives to reach. It s moving from being an opening act to the headliner, from performing on a small stage to the greatest stage in the largest venue possible: a sold out stadium. Everything starts from humble beginnings; talent and work ethic might get you in the game, but stadium status takes strategy and that starts with a vision.

John Brubaker shares his personal experiences as a successful radio personality, coach, and executive consultant, and reveals the strategies employed by country musicians, teams, and brands to build their fan base and separate themselves from the competition. He explains exactly how readers can implement these same tactics to achieve better results in their own endeavors. Stadium Status real-world examples demonstrate that gaining a fresh perspective and applying ideas from outside your industry are what will truly elevate your performance.

Personal Branding and Staying Relevant During COVID-19 –

Meet Nancy, the PR Maven®,
Go-Getter, Social Media Powerhouse

In 1991, Nancy Marshall Communications (now Marshall Communications) was born, a life-changing experience for Nancy and one that’s she’s never regretted. Today, more than 29 years later, the agency has represented many major clients, including the Maine Office of Tourism, the Maine Office of Business Development, and The Orvis Company, among others.

Nancy’s hallmark is her commitment to living clients’ businesses. When she was representing Northern Outdoors, she became a licensed whitewater rafting guide. For the Maine Windjammer Association, she lived the life of a crewmember on the Victory Chimes. For Orvis, she learned to fly fish and tie flies.

Nancy is also well-known for her infectious laugh and insatiable love for learning about everyone she meets. Making connections between people for their mutual benefit is a favorite pastime, as is connecting with new and long-lost friends on social media.
