How Men Can Create Friendships As Adults(a.k.a. The Epidemic Of Male Loneliness)I have seen an epidemic of male loneliness in my clients over the past decade. This observation is borne out by research. Men are socialized to be self-reliant, to fear intimacy, to be stoic, and to be tough. This leads to a loss of friendships as we age for most men. Other factors entering into this epidemic include divorce, moving for employment, difficulty with repairing relationships after conflict, and more. What's more, loneliness has been shown to be as dangerous for our physical health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Lonely people are 50% more likely to die than those with social connections. And more than 50% of the U.S. reports feeling lonely and isolated. Given that there is a problem with loneliness for men, what do we DO about it? How can we begin to build new connections to prevent loneliness and isolation?Join me in a revealing and useful conversation with Sean Doyle, poet, lawyer and positive psychology professor. About Our Guest:John “Sean” Doyle is poet and lawyer and taught psychology at North Carolina State University for close to a decade. Sean has worked on matters of happiness, meaning and resilience with a wide range of individuals and groups, including army drill sergeants, federal appellate judges, Buddhist monks, and foreign governments.  Called the “poetic voice of positive psychology,” Sean's essays and stories are invitations to inject more hope, affection and meaning into the world.  His book, Mud and Dreams, is a call to embrace everything that is hard and beautiful about the world, so that we may fall even deeper in love with life. Sean studied philosophy at Rutgers, received his Juris Doctorate from Loyola University-New Orleans, and his Masters of Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. A husband and father of three, Sean lives and writes in North Carolina.  For more, please visit www.JohnSeanDoyle.com, or contact Sean directly at LiveFully@JohnSeanDoyle.com.If you like what you've heard at The Evolved Caveman podcast, support us by subscribing, leaving reviews on Apple podcasts.

Life is too short. Decide if she is here to understand or be understood. Seek to understand before trying to be understand. Remember that her mom is her biggest support Be the love that Kriste and her mom are both seeking Be willing to be a friend instead of a daughter See our mothers as whole; help her process   Kriste also shares how her father's fight with cancer is having her see life from a macro-view with her family and children.

This week we're replaying a classic episode where your hosts Steve Lowry and Yvonne Godfrey interview Jim M. Perdue, Sr. and Jim M. Perdue, Jr of Perdue and Kidd (https://www.perdueandkidd.com/).    Remember to rate and review GTP in iTunes: Click Here to Rate and Review   Episode Details: Texas trial lawyers Jim M. Perdue, Sr. and Jim M. Perdue, Jr. -- Perdue & Kidd's father-and-son trial team -- take a look back at the first case they ever tried together. Listen as this accomplished trial team explains how they secured justice for the wrongful death of a patient who died as a result of the negligence of a nurse anesthetist during routine orthopedic surgery. In September 1997, 40-year-old Mark Alexander was scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder, but the anesthesiologist left him in the hands of an inexperienced nurse anesthetist, who failed to provide Mark with adequate ventilation during the surgery and neglected to record Mark's heart rate for 17 minutes. As a result, Mark was deprived of adequate blood flow to the brain for 10 to 14 minutes and remained in a coma for two weeks before passing away on October 3, 1997. Involved in the case while Mark was still in a coma, Jim M. Perdue, Sr. was able to collect powerful pieces of evidence he presented at trial: phone recordings and messages from Mark's family. In spite of the defense's attempts to cast blame on the other anesthesiologists and professional associations named in the lawsuit or to distance themselves from having any role in Mark's medical care, the father-and-son legal team was able to hold the doctors accountable for their contribution to Mark's substandard care and proximate cause of death. Jim M. Perdue, Sr. and Jim M. Perdue, Jr. strategically engaged the jury's senses with impressive storytelling and by sharing a visual timeline of the tragic events, a video of Mark languishing in a coma and the hard data comparison of the anesthetist's records versus the medical equipment records. In October 1999, a Harris County, Texas jury unanimously found the four defendants negligent and awarded $3.6 million in damages to Mark's wife and surviving parents.  View/Download Trial Documents   Guest Bios: Jim M.

In May 2011, Irma drove her Ford Focus to Goose Island to pick up her boyfriend from a late-night performance at a nightclub and got lost on a dead-end street bisected by the Chicago River. Due to the City of Chicago's failure to maintain barriers or provide warnings to motorists --despite knowledge of a similar incident that occurred more than a decade earlier -- Irma unknowingly drove her car over the curb and into the water. After an extensive search, her body was discovered nine days later in her vehicle. At trial, the defense attempted to blame Irma for her own wrongful death, insinuating she was drunk, driving impaired, and not paying attention. In May 2016, a Cook County, Illinois jury awarded Irma's family $13,890,000 in damages, delivering the #6 verdict in Illinois in 2016.  View/Download Trial Documents   Guest Bios: Katrina M. Taraska Originally from the East Coast, Katrina M. Taraska grew up in a family of seven in Peoria, Illinois. Her mother was a language teacher proficient in French, Italian and Spanish who devoted her time to the enrichment of the lives of her students while teaching at area schools. Her father, a dedicated pathologist, was one of the four original founders of the Midwest affiliate of St. Jude Children's Hospital, which provides care to children with childhood diseases. Unique to Ms. Taraska's chosen career in personal injury law, she was the victim of a propane gas explosion, in which a commercial building collapsed on her, her mother, her brother, and a close family friend. The explosion left Taraska with extensive second and third-degree burns early in her life. She was hospitalized for 3 months, during which she underwent skin grafting of her arms, legs, hands, and chest. Incredibly, a year prior to the explosion, Ms. Taraska's father and a reconstructive surgeon opened the only downstate burn unit in Peoria where she was successfully treated despite the severity of her burns. It is this life-changing event that has played a significant role in Ms. Taraska's career of representing the injured. After graduating from law school Ms. Taraska has successfully represented clients and their families in complex litigation. In 1995, Katrina Taraska began practicing law in downstate Illinois where she grew up. In 2000 she became a partner with a Peoria law firm where she enjoyed the privilege of advocating for her clients in their respective claims for personal injuries, medical negligence, worker's compensation, and employment discrimination. She frequently appeared before the Circuit Court of Peoria County, Illinois, the Illinois Department of Human Rights, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Social Security Administration, the Department of Employment Security, and in the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois. In 2009, Ms. Taraska joined the Chicago law firm of Goldberg & Goldberg, where she continued her professional experience as a Plaintiff's lawyer in tort litigation. As a focus of her practice, she concentrates on representing individuals and their families in catastrophic medical malpractice and wrongful death claims. Her cases have involved spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, complications from surgical procedures, cardiovascular injuries, birth injuries, interventional radiology, infections, negligence in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries involving alleged abuse and neglect, gynecological and obstetric injuries, and products liability cases. Ms. Taraska also represents individuals involved in transportation accidents (railroad grade crossings, motor vehicle accidents, and semi-truck collisions), as well as premises liability claims, and injuries from assault, battery, and false imprisonment.

Joseph also argued on behalf of the State before the Illinois Appellate Court in People v. Primbas, an animal cruelty case that resulted in the death of a Rottweiler, where the Appellate Court again agreed with Joseph and published an opinion in his favor. For the following four years, Joseph worked in the Traffic Division where he prosecuted DUIs and represented the victims of automobile crashes. During his time in the Traffic Division Joseph refined his skills in the courtroom, prosecuting over 600 trials to verdict including 14 jury trials. In recognition of his performance and dedication, the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists awarded Joseph with a Certificate of Recognition and Achievement.

Musician, Lawyer, and President of one of the nation's premier RIA firms, David Canter, is focused on positioning Bluespring Wealth Partners as one of the premiere acquirers in the industry. He is very hands-on with operations, including overseeing day-to-day operations and identifying new areas of opportunity and growth. David has worked himself up the ladder in the space, previously serving as Executive Vice President and Head of the RIA segment for Fidelity Clearing & Custody Solutions and now serving as President of Bluespring Wealth Partners. David has worked on many sides of the RIA space, including custody, and now acquiring, but, as most stories go, working in the RIA space wasn't his life-long passion. Without question, he had his sights set on the entertainment industry. He based his life around going into the entertainment industry – training at one point as an actor – and has a love of music and playing his guitar. Breaking into the entertainment industry is hard; beyond acting as an extra, he found that the work just wasn't there. He quickly had to realize that there were other avenues he could take to make money, while still keeping the arts as a deeply held passion. Once he made the decision to focus himself elsewhere, David was drawn to law. The lure of the courtroom was undeniable to David, and he went on to pursue a Juris Doctorate from the University of Baltimore. He loved the courtroom and trial-work, and currently holds his FNRA Series 24 license and is a California State Bar member. THE BLUESPRING ATTRACTION David has been a jack of all trades in the best way possible, but what attracted him to Bluespring Wealth Partners after nearly three decades in the RIA space is simple: He wanted a new challenge. He wanted to find a place that met his self-evaluations for a new challenge after 12+ years at another firm. He found Bluespring's platform very appealing. That platform is based on: Helping people, helping investors specifically Welcoming entrepreneurs Allowing entrepreneurs to continue to be entrepreneurs Doing good with the education and powers they have For David, Bluespring Wealth Partners wasn't just a challenge, but a fitting piece to the next chapter in his career. It allows him to be entrepreneurial, but simultaneously intrapreneurial. This balance allows David many freedoms he wouldn't otherwise have, and a chance to build the company into something new. It is now a 29-firm platform spanning 16 states – and growing. The firm will do 9 acquisitions by the end of 2022, but not just for the sake of acquisitioning. Their acquisition plan is focused on solving the problems of their “partner firms”, as they call their network of firms. AN INFORMED CHOICE In the RIA space, there are many choices an investor can make just to get to the starting line. David believes in choice, and not merely having choice, but having informed choice. David understands that Bluespring Wealth Partners isn't going to be the perfect choice for everyone, however he wants the DealQuest listeners to know what Bluespring does. Bluespring Wealth Partners can be best described as a practice management consultancy at its core that happens to be in the strategic M&A space. It is the responsibility of practice management consultants to assist offices and firms with improving efficiency within their workplace and in their business operations. That's the bulk of Bluespring Wealth Partners' approach: Addressing problems with their acquired “partner firms” and problem-solving efficiency via the network of firms under Bluespring. ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL Two of the most commonly used words in the RIA space are “aggregator” and “integrator”. Many firms operate either pure aggregator or pure integrator, however, there are a number of firms that pick elements of either model to formulate their perfect model. There is a reason all these models exist, and that's simply because no singular model works for every firm, entrepreneur, client, or investor. Again, choice plays a vital role in decision for the model under which Bluespring operates. The choices David lay out are: Choice 1: Do nothing. Keep on moving forward as you always have, and hopefully filling your career. Choice 2: De-risk. For example: A firm has a retiring partner, so to pull some capital, they find a minority interest. Not take control, but merely provide some capital. Choice 3: Find a pure capital partner. For example: They buy 50%+, and you obtain a capital partner that's not going to provide other shared services or contributions aside from bulk capital. Choice 4: Entrepreneurial model (A.K.A.: aggregation model). Keep your brand and the acquiring company will take at minimum 51% interest in your firm and build a flexible deal structure. By doing this, the focus is preserving the entrepreneurial model and providing various services to help propel your firm forward into growth within the network of acquired firms. Choice 5: Subsume into another brand (more commonly known as integration model). You become the larger brand, forgoing your independent brand identity for the growth of the whole institution. The larger firm will guide the smaller acquired firms in their business activities, but the goal of the smaller firms is to continue looking after their clients. Choice 6: Internal succession to a G2. David notes that in their initial research for founding Bluespring, they found that founders mostly prefer this route;however, the biggest obstacle is finding the capital. G2s would say they would like to pay out of cash flow, but ultimately, it's the entrepreneur taking the risk and it's their cash flow that will fund that transition. Choice 7: A combination of all of the above. Choosing the aspects of all the available models to build a Frankenstein model that works best for your goals, your future, and what you want to do with your firm. These seven choices on how to proceed is what allows a firm to formulate how they're going to move forward with their M&A deals. Bluespring Wealth Partners primarily functions as Choice 4, the Entrepreneurial Model, while recognizing the benefits of all models, opting to borrow practices from other models to give their entrepreneurs the best of all worlds, and allowing over half of their firms to be standalone RIAs. Keep their brand (For example: Capital Planning, A Bluespring Wealth Partner) Keep their own ADV Keep their client experience Bluespring provides capital A sister company Kestra Financial wherein some of their firms they've bought it on that chasse THE VALUE BLUESPRING BRINGS David affirms there are about 90% of opportunities that cross their path that they do not take. Bluespring is very transparent with those opportunities as to why they pass. By being particular in the opportunities they take, Bluespring has built an elite and strong network of firms. Offering immense value to the firms that Bluespring acquires. One attribute of Bluespring's consultancy is that even when they pass on an opportunity, they're offering their consultancy to these firms to help them better grow, irrespective of Bluespring choosing to bring them into their network or not. Bluespring's consulting really begins long before they even decide to enter into a transaction. If Bluespring does go forward with a transaction, there's a lot of due diligence they do by way of taking a consultative approach to how they're going to do business together, and how they're going to structure transactions so the right benefits, incentives, and horizons can be found. Once a firm enters their network, they provide an array of resources to help their community network grow: A business consulting group Marketing assessments Large technology infrastructure An M&A team to help with sub-acquisitions Access to capital, backed by two private equity firms -- majority-owned by Warburg Pincus, and Oak Hill Capital Offering a training program for G2s: The G2 Successor Academy, a simulated 2-year course wherein G2s are educated and trained through guest lecturers, peer study, etc. CHOOSING WHAT WORKS FOR YOUR SUCCESS There is a reason why there are so many various models and combinations of models. At the end of the day, choosing your model is about you and your goals. With Bluespring, David ultimately wants to operate as a culture-driven community. Allowing their acquisitions to remain primarily autonomous, while gaining the support of Bluespring and their resources. There is no one superior model, however each firm will always believe they've found the key to making a successful business. That is true in a lot of ways because success is very abstract; they are successful because their model works for them, not because they have the superior model. Reviewing choices, building a model for their needs and goals, and understanding what opportunities should be taken and those that shouldn't, are all keys to making Bluespring's model work successfully. They will be some of the keys to help build your success, as well. • • • For my full discussion with David Canter, and more on the topic:Listen to the Full DealQuest Podcast Episode Here • • • FOR MORE ON DAVID CANTER AND BLUESPRING WEALTH PARTNERS:https://www.bluespringwealth.com/advisor/why-bluespring Corey Kupfer is an expert strategist, negotiator, and dealmaker.

The threats to American democracy seem to grow every day, not from some external threat, but from within: revelations about the January 6 insurrection, gerrymandered Congressional districts and even restrictions on voting rights proposed or in place across the country. Marc Morial helps document those threats to American democracy and offers lessons about how citizens can resist them. Morial served as mayor of New Orleans from 1994-2002. After leaving office, he became President and CEO of the National Urban League. The League was founded in 1910 to aid Black migrants fleeing from the South to the Northern states. Since then, they have grown to serve 300 communities through their 90 affiliates. Morial says the goal of the League has always been “to bring voice to those who have been locked out and left out.” Over the past 15 years, he has expanded the reach of its services and assisted in creating a framework for policies that will continue to benefit communities of color. Morial earned a bachelor's degree in Economics and African American Studies from the University of Pennsylvania and his Juris Doctorate from Georgetown University. He is a recipient of the Louisiana State Bar Association's Pro Bono Publico Award for his work with the disadvantaged and impoverished. Additionally, he has been listed as both one of Ebony Magazine's 100 Most Influential Black Americans and one of the Nonprofit Times' Top 50 Nonprofit Executives. During the pandemic, Morial played an integral role in bringing attention to the needs of Black Americans and addressing the fracturing of the United States before and after January 6th. In 2020, he published “The Gumbo Coalition,” a book that reflects Morial's time as a public figure and the lessons he learned throughout.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
