    Stepping into the Void: 

    Option for Helping Clients

    Speaker: Laura Queen

    When was the last time you heard, "I just need a simple agreement; or a quick review of my balance sheet, or 10 minutes of advice on how to address an employee concern?; only to find that - "simple" means restructuring the entire operating agreement, your client's entire financial recording keeping system is contained in a shoebox, or the employee concern may result in a class-action lawsuit.  Like us, you are undoubtedly called upon to help clients who don't-know-what-they-don't-know. What are your success strategies for bridging these gaps? What have you learned from your experiences that could help others? What secret wisdom would you like from your fellow XPXers? This is your opportunity to share your experiences and learn from (and about) others.
