Episode 86 – Ben Neiburger – Estate Planning

Ben Neiburger (@GenerationLaw on twitter) talks with host Craig Price about estate planning. No one likes to talk about dying or the death of a loved one, but as America ages, it is becoming more important each day to make sure your affairs are in order. Ben and Craig talk elderly parents, what happens to assets when only one spouse has their name on it, how to prepare for the future and when. They also talk about not only making sure you know what to do with your finances but also what to do if you are incapacitated.
It can all be gone in an instant and leaving the burden of navigating the legal system while grieving can be overwhelming. It’s never too soon to think about the future, the what ifs and making sure your loved ones are taken care of if the worst happens.
Ben Neiburger not only is an expert on Estate Planning, his practice at http://www.GenerationLaw.com covers all aspects of elderly care, will and trust administration as well as estate and guardianship litigation.

Episode 84 – Michael Krause – Sales Prospecting

Michael Krause (@SalesSense on Twitter) talks to host Craig Price about sales prospecting. It’s no secret that to make sales you need to find people who will buy from you. But who do you contact? How often? When does it cross the line from persistence to the awkward unwanted advances of a stalker? Michael has made it easy with his book “Smart Prospecting That Works Every Time!: Win More Clients with Fewer Cold Calls”. Michael set out a process with Craig on “touch” frequency since prospecting isn’t just calling on the phone, but could be direct mail, email, passenger pigeon (if you have the budget)…pretty much any way you can get your service or product in front of potential buyers. And while sales prospecting can be a numbers game, Michael really gets to the heart of the issue when he talks about following up, something most people don’t do or do poorly. They also talk about how too many sales prospectors ruin the experience for your potential buyers and what you need to build trust. If you’re a new or even an experienced sales person, this podcast has something for you.

Episode 83 – Ed Opperman – Digital Forensics

Ed Opperman with Opperman Investigations, joins host Craig Price to discuss digital forensics. Digital forensics is the recovery and investigation of information found in digital devices and Ed’s company does just that. The world is full of sneaky people and not all of them are out doing the right things. Be it infidelity, cyber stalking or even email hacking, it often takes professionals like Ed to gather the digital evidence hidden away in smartphones, emails accounts and hard drives. Craig and Ed discuss how much information can be recovered from erased phones, how even people like the CIA Director David Petraeus can get caught, how Al-Qaeda communicates on free email accounts and even how crazy ex-girlfriends (or boyfriends) often hack into computers not to find evidence but to plant evidence! Yes, relationships can lead to some crazy, impulsive and possible illegal actions. Thankfully, Craig doesn’t have to worry about that with his wonderful and caring wife (she is listening, right?) 
Ed has also invented a method of Internet infidelity investigation that traces a persons email address to online dating personal ads, dating sites, social networks, porn site, cam site and escort site memberships. You can learn more about Ed at  http://www.EmailRevealer.com
