In our fourth or fifth podcasts, we explore Aristotle’s influence on my time in federal prison, hoping it resonates with you, regardless of your stage in a government investigation.

Aristotle said, “Excellence is not an act, but a habit.” This concept underlines the importance of continuous learning. It’s crucial, especially during a government investigation, to understand the complexities involved. To aid in this, we’re linking to Mitigation Arc, a service providing digital courses and mastermind sessions on navigating government investigations.

Learning, however, can be overwhelming, especially when you realize the breadth of what you don’t know. This is particularly true in complex legal scenarios, where understanding the nuances of your situation is key. We cover a range of topics in our courses, from understanding the differences between civil and criminal charges to strategies for dealing with various stakeholders in an investigation.

Feeling overwhelmed is common, but it’s essential not to let it paralyze you.

The key is to start with one productive action and build from there, creating a habit of excellence. In my own experience, as detailed in Lessons from Prison, I initially struggled with this. I relied too much on luck and didn’t proactively seek knowledge, which is vital in reducing fear and anxiety in this situation.

It’s also crucial to discern the quality of information you receive. Not everything online is trustworthy. Our team focuses on realistic, evidence-backed advice to help you achieve the best outcome at every stage of your journey.

We invite you to schedule a call with us for tailored advice and support, no matter where you are in the investigation or sentencing process. We promise honesty and practical guidance based on our own experiences.

Remember, we can only help if you’re willing to do the work!

Finally, in this podcast I urge you to consider: Are you cultivating the necessary character and skills right now? Are you taking steps to educate yourself about every phase of a government investigation? Success in this journey requires knowledge, work, and the ability to hold those you hire accountable.

Thank you for listening.
