Show Notes

In this episode, we interview Jay Sheryll, Founder & Owner of Sheryll Law, P.C.

Jay Sheryll
As a husband and father of two daughters, Jay Sheryll understands the importance of family relationships and legacy. When he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Juris Doctor degree from Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, he knew he wanted to start his own practice and devote it to estate planning because, in his words, “having a family is all we leave behind.” He established Sheryll Law, P.C. in Riverhead, New York, in 2017, where he and his staff cater to clients’ estate planning needs on the East End of Long Island.

What makes Jay so passionate about estate planning law? “I enjoy seeing the ease and peace of mind our clients experience after we’ve helped them navigate through the process - especially because they often wait until the last minute. We guide them through a trying time in their lives and help them achieve their goals. That is what drives all of us at Sheryll Law, P.C.”

Jay and his team help their clients leave a legacy and achieve the peace of mind of knowing that they can protect their family if something happens to them. Sheryll Law, P.C. understands that their clients have worked hard to build their legacy. It is their pleasure to help them leave their money to their loved ones according to their wishes. When not working, Jay enjoys spending time with his wife Brigitte, and daughters Eliana and Lily; playing chess; and making music with various instruments, including the guitar, trumpet, and violin. He and his family reside on the East End of Long Island, within 15 minutes of the Sheryll Law, P.C. Riverhead office.

Sheryll Law, P.C
It’s the mission of Jay and Sheryll Law, P.C. to be the last attorney and law firm their client's shop for because they go beyond estate planning services to become a trusted advisor in a multitude of vital areas.

Having observed other firms haphazardly draft wills and throw together some powers-of-attorney without any thought to the planning aspect, Jay realized he could fulfill a need for East End Long Island clients. Furthermore, because Sheryll Law, P.C. devotes its practice solely to estate planning, they know the rules of the game and explain them to everyone who consults with them. Notes Jay, “Our clients have a right to be educated so that we can help them make smart decisions and accomplish their objectives.”

Although Jay and the Sheryll Law, P.C. team are consummate professionals with years of estate planning experience, they remain approachable and down-to-earth. In an area of law perceived to be stuffy and condescending, under Jay’s guidance, Sheryll Law, P.C. treats their clients with respect, courtesy, and warmth --as evidenced by their many online reviews.

Lead, Manage, Retain, and Hold your Team Accountable: How To Revolutionize Your Firm

In today’s episode, we interview Michael Erath, Founder of Next Level Growth, a firm of business guides who help businesses systemize and scale. Michael ErathIn the first 15 years of his career, Michael took over an $8MM family manufacturing business which he grew to $45MM in revenue with over 200 employees during his 15 years as President & CEO.Being tied closely to the housing market and due to a significant betrayal from a business partner who eventually served prison time for embezzlement and fraud, during the financial collapse of 2009 Michael lost it all.Late in 2010, Michael leveraged all that he had and started a new business. It was during the startup of his new business that Michael was introduced to the book Traction®. In Traction, Michael found many of the same tools he had implemented in the past, but this time as part of a more holistic system that filled in many of the missing gaps he experienced when he had tried the “do-it-yourself” route earlier in his career.Shortly thereafter, Michael began implementing EOS® as the basic foundation in his new business. With EOS® as the foundation, Michael then used his past experience with other systems to plug the holes that exist in EOS, layering on strategy and cash management tools from Scaling Up; recruiting and hiring A-Player playbooks from Topgrading; and other advanced business tools he had learned over his career and from his time in YPO. This customized approach allowed him to grow the business rapidly and in 2015 make the Inc. 5000. Running the business on a complete and custom-tailored system gave Michael the entrepreneurial freedom to eventually ...
