A highlight from 346: Understand Your Biases, Take Back Control of Your Body & Mind & Live A More Fulfilled Life | EVETTE DIONNE

"So hope is for me everything. I wake up hopeful. I wake up optimistic. I think it really makes a difference for me who has chronic illnesses. It really does make a difference. And whether or not I feel like life is worth it, like the days when I'm really tired and my body is exhausted and I can barely get out of bed, it's still worth it to get up because the world is still moving, like the world is changing better is coming, whether or not I live to see it. Hi, I'm Rachel Hollis, and this is my podcast. I spend so many hours of every single week reading and listening to podcasts and watching YouTube videos and trying to find out as much as I can about the world around me. And that's what we do on this show. We talk about everything. Life and how to be an entrepreneur. What happened to dinosaurs? What's the best recipe for fried chicken? What's the best plan for intermittent fasting? What's going on with our inner child? How's therapy working out for you? Whatever it is, my guess are into, I want to unpack it so that we can all understand. These are conversations. This is information for the curious. This is the Rachel Hollis podcast. And I guess we'll just jump in to our chat. So event for listeners who aren't familiar with your work will you tell us a bit about who you are, what you do and why we come to have this conversation today. Yeah, I am a multi hyphenate is how I describe myself. A trained, I'm a trained journalist, so my day job is being the executive editor at this magazine called yes, where I focus on solutions journalism. So thinking about the biggest issues of our day, whether it's racial injustice or indigenous rights, and thinking really forward about what are the solutions to those issues instead of just presenting the problems themselves. And I would say that is something that carries across my life in my career so outside of that an author, a lot of my work focuses on gender and race and size and taking through the lens of pop culture about how we can address those issues and solve them and really think about dismantling those sorts of institutions. So that's a part of my work. And then outside of that, I speak about a lot of those issues and I do it to children. I do it with adults and really trying to get everyone on the board on board with the idea that we can imagine a new world. It doesn't have to look the way that it looks now. The first thing that you said that really sparked curiosity to me is, did you call it solutions journalism? Is that how you set it? I did, yeah. What does that look like? Is that finding experts in the field is that doing your own research? Just fascinated by how that manifests in your life. It's really being connected to and doing community building with people who are on the ground addressing these issues. So whether it's thought leaders or activists or organizers, people who are really ingrained in movements. So I think a lot about one of my favorite people in the world Renee bracey Sherman who is on the ground related to reproductive justice. So when we wanted to do a story about the ways in which activists in Latin America have become a lighthouse for activists in the United States who are focused on reproductive justice, I reached out to Renee like we need someone in Argentina and she said, I know the perfect person. So it's really having and building relationships with people who are not just focused on the problem, but focused on how do we create a better world around this issue, how do we use community to do that and how can the work that I do amplify that message? So it's not just about the bleakness of it, but the hope of it, the optimism of it, like what comes after. Well, and I think when you're getting into an awareness of a new, I hate to say the word problem, but that's what they are. Problems that are facing us in this world in our country, how do you even understand which grassroots organizations are the ones that are truly affecting change? Because I think, you know, when we become aware of something that's going on in the world, like I think of when roe V wade was overturned, and all of the sudden, it was like, I hate to sound like an idiot. I couldn't even believe that that could happen. And you know, and as it was getting closer and closer, it was like, holy shit. No way. No way, and then it happened, and it was like, oh, what do we even do? And so just starting to arm myself with information about which organizations in my local community and the nation that I could support with my platform with my money with my whatever, how have you found that it's best to identify the ones that are truly doing that have the efficacy that we should be supporting because I also think that sometimes it becomes so popular that everyone's doing it, you kind of don't know who you're supposed to look at for guidance. I always say to look toward a person who you trust and ask them about an organization. So no matter what organization it is, if there's someone in your community or even a distant friend who's involved in some sort of movement, ask them, ask them, and I also think social media has been a really great way to figure that out because people will openly criticize organizations that are not on the ground doing the work that they claim to do. So sometimes it's as simple as searching for organizations names say on Twitter or on Facebook or on Instagram and seeing what the criticism is of that organization. And then you can always make a choice of whether or not to support it, but at least you have all of the knowledge about the organization before you decide to throw your support around it or platform it or give money to it. And how did you how did you find your way into this specific type of coverage and journalism? Like, what was it in your past that kind of led you to this place? Oh, that's an awesome question. I am a trained journalist, like a straight up trained journalist, and the way in which we are trained is that we are never the story and that we're supposed to have this objective lens of an issue without any bias or any perspective. And I came to realize that was untrue and graduate school. When I really started understanding that, regardless of whether or not people are open about their biases, everyone has them, and a lot of it is subconscious. So everyone has a worldview, everyone has a perspective. And that really came to the forefront for me when I started supplementing my journalism education with humanity's education. So in history courses and in black feminist theory courses and sociology courses and communication studies, it really helped me develop knowledge outside of just the skill of journalism. And I wanted to figure out how to merge those two things.

"Their community something like armchair experts that the armchairs call her daddy, their daddies, heard something I was listening to Mark Mayer and the other day. He has all kinds of crazy names for his, what's our community called? I don't know, I mean, I am very, I feel like there should be a thing. I feel like you guys should submit to the hotline what we should be called and then we'll vote and we'll choose something and then henceforth it'll be like, hey T. Rex, that that actually makes no sense. Nobody wants to be called that. We could be the podcast community that go by dinosaur names. I'm just saying, you guys, welcome to another episode of ask rage. The weekly show where I answer y'all's questions, you call into a hotline, you leave me a voicemail, like an old school answering machine, and then I answer some of the questions and today's are really good. Two questions that have nothing to do with each other, but I feel like are fantastic.

"I always say no one wakes up and says I want to be a drug addict or an alcoholic. No one, we start drinking or using drugs as to fit in or to be social or to anesthetize some sort of pain or discomfort or anything at all. And then it becomes a little bit of a habit. And then we just start and continue and it creeps in so, so slowly. And a lot of times people will say to me, how do I know if I'm an addict or how do I know if I'm an alcoholic? And I always say, especially to younger people, the question you should be asking me is how do you get alcoholism? How do you get drug addiction? In the same way that you would be asking, oh, how do I prevent heart disease or diabetes or cancer? How can I start living healthier? Hi, I'm Rachel Hollis, and this is my podcast.

A highlight from How to have good arguments with world debate champion Bo Seo

"From standing up for what you believe in, to challenging conventional wisdom, embracing rejection, or finding gratitude every day, our show is your guide to becoming a little less terrible. Not that you're terrible right now. I think you're great, but helping me become a little less terrible. And maybe you'll pick up something along the way. You can find how to be a better human wherever you're listening to this. Hey everyone, welcome back to rethinking. I recorded today's conversation for another podcast I sometimes co host. The next big idea presented by LinkedIn. My guest is world debate champion bosio, who might just challenge you to rethink how to have a good argument. Bo, it's such a treat to finally meet you. Such a pleasure, such a pleasure. It feels like we've known each other a while now. I thought good arguments was exceptionally insightful and I learned so much from it. I was actually a little bit disappointed that I didn't read it before writing think again because I could have rethought a lot of the debate chapter in light of what I learned from your expertise. I mean, the same is true for me because I had the benefit of going off to you. I think I told you that reading that book changed my view of what this book could be. And just the generosity and attention you've shown to the community and thinking about how it's lessons could translate more broadly. That was really instructive for me. Well, honored. And I just learned a ton from your book. And I'm excited to be able to both dig into some of the greatest hits, but then also expand beyond them with some things I'm curious about. The place I have to start is, you are the world debate champion. How did you become that? I want to hear the story. 15 years or something like that. I moved when I was 8 from South Korea to Australia. And I didn't speak English at the time. And I learned that the hardest part of doing that was adjusting to real live conversation, and that the hardest conversations to adjust to were disagreements. And I was also wary at that time of drawing attention to my differences from my peers. As one of the few Asian kids in the suburbs of Sydney. And the combination of those two things made me resolve to be very agreeable. And the thing that broke me out of that was a promise that my 5th grade teacher made me, which was that in debating when one person speaks no one else does. And to someone who had been spoken over and interrupted and spun out of conversation, that sounded pretty irresistible. So it was a kind of a fit, really, and once I was in, I was hooked. And competitive instincts took over the joy of learning. The sense that there was a set of procedures and wisdoms and actions and drills and skills that you could trust almost blindly and hope that the results would follow. That's what I took to. And I started competing for my state and then for Australia and then for Harvard, where I did my undergraduate education and it didn't feel so much like chasing the prize of winning the world championship so much as giving into this current that I think had been running before I joined that will run after I've left this current of teaching people to make an art and a craft out of argument. Well, that's a huge part of what I want to talk about today. I guess for starters, what do you think that most people get wrong about debate? One thing that comes to mind is that it's an essentially destructive activity. One of the skills that people learn to master is dismantling, critiquing, finding holes in, noticing the ways in which authorities incomplete. But one of the things that you learn very quickly is judges and so debates have an adjudicator, someone who says who's won. And they are a kind of a proxy for the audience who's listening. They usually don't look for reasons to vote against someone. They look for reasons to vote for someone. And in order to do that, there's a limit to what criticism can achieve. And so if you can think of two couples arguing about where to go on holidays and one of them is suggesting Hawaii and then the other person is finding all the problems with that and then they say, you know, what about Mexico here all the problems with that? And imagine the person who was proposing all those destinations, getting fed up with all the criticism and saying after a while, what do you propose?

A highlight from $1,000,000 offer to leave Barstool? Barstools Brianna Chickenfry LaPaglia on the $$$ behind her career, the reality of influencing and staying grounded. All sparked from hangover videos!!

"She has grown a social media falling to over 400,000 followers on Instagram 1.6 million on TikTok and continues to see her following grow. Each and every day must be nice, Brianna. You have to tell me the secret. Rihanna has established herself as a social media icon and it all started by going viral on TikTok while being hung over in college. We'll get into that. To some it may seem crazy, but Brianna has been able to capitalize on her unexpected rise to fame in more ways than one. We're gonna do a deep dive into how Brianna has been able to create and hold such a strong social media following. What her life at barstool sports looks like and what other ventures she sees herself pursuing moving forward Brianna, thank you so much for being here today. Thank you. What an intro. You like that? Never had one like that before. Did you guys do that on the BFFs podcast? And now we're here with our whatever it is. It's fucking working. All right, we're gonna get into it. I wanna kick it off with this clip. I saw this clip and I said to my manager over here, I was like, it's not that we want her on. We need her on. And so for everyone at home, I'm gonna play the clip. And then I just wanna kind of dive into this a little bit. What also pisses me off and why everyone in the influencer realm gets fucked as no one talks about money. Yeah, it's crazy. And I don't know why it's such a niche thing like if everyone talks about what they got paid for brand deals and how much money they were making, then we would have benefit all of us. Yeah. Like people just don't talk about it. So then you don't know your rate. There's no one to ask. There's no one to go. There's not an influencer coach. Yeah, that's also true in like regular work world too. Like a 9 to 5. Okay, so that's a clip. That's a clip where I was like, we got to get you on. You said it right. That's the crux of this podcast. There is nowhere to go. You have no idea what your value is. So through your crazy journey of how fast it's been and your rise and following and just attention and engagement. have you been able to find out what your value should be for the stuff you're doing? Well, I still don't know my value almost because nobody talks about it, but when I first started, I remember I got my contract with barstool and it was, it was like, I don't know, $75,000 for like a year, but I was like, nobody edited and I followers. And I was like, this is amazing. This is crazy. And I didn't know what other influencers were making that for a swipe up. And I'm like, this is going to be my salary, which I thought was amazing. So I didn't know that yet. And then I got into barstool, and I started talking to people, and even people at barstool didn't want to tell me how much they were making, which was really frustrating because I didn't know what to base anything. I didn't know anything. I didn't know what my coworkers were making. I didn't know what someone with the same level is like followers was making as me. So I didn't know idea where to go. Okay. So that's where I kind of went to Rhea to reinforce. I've been on there. I've been on their show up for questions. And we've come on our show. Yeah, yeah, so I went to them and I'm just like straight up. We weren't even that friends yet, but I was like, how much money do you guys make? It looked at me like I had ten heads. I'm like, I guess that's a crazy question because everyone makes it a crazy question. Yeah. Then they flat out just told me, and I went straight to my boss and I'm like, here's what it should be making. This is what I should be doing. But I was so scared to ask people because it was like, it was such a taboo topic. Yeah, it's interesting. So when they came on, they were saying, and I think this is genius. They go into their annual reviews together. And they said at least they get paid the exact same. So they each know each other makes, and there's never a question like, oh, well, who's bringing more value? It doesn't create attention between them. They're like, we all get paid the same. Do you have anybody in the barstool circle that like you go in together with that you understand exactly what they're making or is it just you on your own? It's just me and this is where it's hard and I think a lot of people that are influencers or do what I do struggle with is I come. My parents have no idea what I do. So they can't help me. I can't ask them for advice. They don't know what I should be making. They have no idea what I do. With barstool, you really don't have management. So I don't have a manager. I'm just at barstool. So I go into these meetings alone and I'm almost like gauging everything off of my knowledge and by myself, which is probably the most intimidating part about it. Sure. Yeah, so I don't really know what I should be asking for, and that's why I made that clip. I started talking about it. I started talking to other influencers. Like, hey, how much money do you guys make? What do you make for a swipe up? What do you make for a brand deal? That's helped me. And one of the tough things about the whole industry. And this is what ended up me starting our own. We started our own talent management company. Because I got off the bachelor, and then there's all these deals coming in, right? And there's all these different agents. And what's crazy is I would have three different agents, pitching me the same brand, the same deal, the same delivery, and the difference in the price point was like four X. So I'm like, where the fuck's, how? Everything's the same. How the hell am I getting paid one fourth of what someone else is offering me from the same brand? It's because there's so many hands in the pot. So even when it's challenging to benchmark your value against other people, in this world, you can't even benchmark your value against yourself because of all this shit going on. It's crazy. It is not. Let's take a little break, and I'm going to tell you about how you can get up to $500 instantly. So here's the deal. Fourth

A highlight from aqw: WHAT I LEARNED FROM OPRAH

"Hey guys, it's Rachel, and this is a quick word on what I learned from Oprah. Story time. I have loved, loved, is the only word I can use. Loved and admired and idolized Oprah Winfrey since I was a little girl. I am what you call an Oprah baby, meaning I grew up I was a latchkey kid and every day I came home from school and I sat down on the carpet in front of the TV and I watched The Oprah Winfrey Show every single day. I'm sad for the next generation who don't understand how incredible or important she is to people in our generation, but that's neither here nor there. I love this woman. One of my life goals was to speak on Oprah Winfrey stage. You've made me heard me talk about this. I wrote it down in my start today journal. Every day, every day, every day. I speak on Oprah Winfrey stage, I speak on Oprah Winfrey stage. And I honestly didn't know how this would manifest for me. I just knew that every once in a while she would do these tours for like super soul Sunday or super soul Sessions or maybe I would do something with own. I didn't know what it was. I just was laser focused on the idea that someday I would have the opportunity to do this thing. And at the beginning of 2020, which feels absolutely insane that this happened in 2020, I had the opportunity to open for Oprah on her, oh golly, I can't even think of the name of the tour. Is she did this like ten city tour where she went to all these big venues. It was like 15,000 people in the audience and she would have celebrities that she would interview and she'd have speakers come on. And they had reached out to me her team and said, we'd love to have you speak and I stopped crapping my pants long enough to just be like, oh my gosh, yes, absolutely. This would be amazing. And I was so excited. They were like, you know, we'll pay you to come and do this. And I said, I don't even need money. I just want to bring my girlfriends because it was Oprah Winfrey and it was Michelle Obama so lucky I got to be there when Michelle Obama was her interview and we I just wanted to bring my best friends and it was so funny because when we were there, we're all just like having the best time and freaking out and people kept saying like, oh, is this your publicist? Is this because people have an entourage? They bring all these people. I'm like, no, these are just my Friends. And people were so confused backstage. You just brought your friend. I'm like, yeah, 'cause Oprah's here and Michelle Obama's here and this is amazing. We had the best time, made me heard me tell the story before where I sort of knew that my typical style of speaking maybe didn't exactly align with what miss Winfrey was putting on that day. She's a lot more like spiritual and there were like sound bowls and your girls over here jumping up and down to macklemore and telling gross stories and I was meditating that morning on do I kind of downplay what I would normally do or do I just show up on stage as myself. And I decided to show up on stage as myself and I opened my keynote telling a story about losing a tampon inside of my body, which is, it sounds very gross right now, but I promise you it is a hilarious story and every audience is dying when they hear it. And as soon as I start telling the story, I'm like a few minutes in and Oprah, I did not tell you this, but Oprah was sitting in the audience. And so I had known that in advance, like, oh, she's going to be down there, which was terrifying to me because I thought, oh, my lord, if I have to do this, but she's watching, I'm probably just going to implode. But I somehow kept it together. I start my keynote. I'm telling my story and I'm speaking for about 8 minutes, the audience is laughing. I'm having a great time. And I see her stand up and leave her seat. And when Oprah stands up, I mean, there's like 57, there's like a S.W.A.T. team and the Secret Service. There's just everybody, her security team takes her off and I'm like, on stage, and it's a really weird thing, but when I am speaking, I can also process what's happening in the room. One of my Friends is a musician and he was saying the same thing. Like he can literally be performing his hit song. And in the back of his mind, he's also thinking about something as a weird compartmentalizing thing. In any event, I see her stand up and in the back of my mind, I'm like, oh my God, she hates my speech. She literally hates my speech. So the remaining time of my keynote, I am giving my keynote while in the back of my mind freaking out because my hero hates what I'm saying and is totally pissed off. And I'm like, oh my God, I've offended her. She's invited me here and I've messed this up and I've done a bad job. And the voice in the back of my head is like, no, it's fine. You're being dramatic. This is great. And when my speech is done, she comes on stage. And she says, the first words out of her mouth, she goes, girl. I'm glad you figured out where that was going, 'cause I was trying to understand what on earth you were talking about. So in front of 15,000 people, she's come up on stage and made me very aware that what I was reading when she stood up from her seat was accurate. That she was not happy that I was telling a story about a tampon, right? And I, on that stage, I die, y'all, I die 1 million thousand deaths. And because I'm like, oh my God, this is my hero, and I'm this is the worst. It was horrible. So she's interviewing me. She's asking me questions, and I'm just like, I'm trying to keep my shit together. And the last question was, she's like, wow, you know, your book, it sold millions of copies, you've been on The New York Times Best Seller list for over a year, like I just keep seeing your name on there and you've had all this success. What do you think it is about you and your work that

A highlight from Dorie Clark on Reinventing You

Hello Monday by LinkedIn

A highlight from Dorie Clark on Reinventing You

"Hello Monday, our show about the changing nature of work. And how that work is changing us. Okay, so quick question, don't overthink it. What's your plan B? What are you going to do if your job goes away? In your industry flat lines. Because this is definitely part of what's going on this year. Take media companies, I spend most of my career working for them. And I've been really crushed to watch so many of my friends and former colleagues really talented people get laid off. And it's got me thinking, as we prepare for this next big shift, maybe we just shouldn't be looking for a job like the one we have. Maybe it's time to look for something else. So how do you begin to do that? If anyone has a good answer to that question, it's my fun Dory Clark. Dory's a master at reinvention. She's actually written a book on it called me inventing you. She's written a couple of books, and she's a coach, and she teaches. She's taught recently the business school at Columbia and duke. Which is to say that she's qualified on paper, but I'm here to tell you she's also qualified in person, a couple years ago, I called her up for a drink when I needed advice on my own side hustle. Why Dori? Well, she's all action, tips, ideas, and she's always in your corner. That and she speaks from experience, Dory lost her job after 9 11. It really shook her. Here's Dory. It's something that has been on my mind for a long time. Honestly, because during one of the last great national calamities in 9 11, I lost my job as a newspaper reporter and was unemployed and was given four days of severance pay and suddenly had to support myself. So I really dove head first into the question of how do you deal with being laid off and losing your job in the midst of a truly terrible and frightening economic situation? So I definitely have a lot of thoughts and ideas to share. Wow. So as a journalist, I will say that every year that I have been in this profession, I have seen layoffs at the institutions I've worked for. And that is not targeting one institution. It's every institution. It is an industry that's deeply troubled. But 9 11, that's going back nearly 20 years. What was your life like, then what did you think you would do before that happened? Well, I think that somewhat analogous to our current situation, right now, if you are a journalist, let's say, it's not really a huge surprise when people get laid off because that's a thing that happens to journalists. But in 2001, it was a stunning and shocking thing that a journalist would be laid off because we forget it now, but the year 2000 was literally the best year all time in history for the print journalism industry. It was dripping in profits. It was so lucrative and then I totally remember that. Not to stop you. But I shortly after that period, but within a decade after that period, I went to work for fortune magazine, and they always talked about that trip to Hawaii for the entire editorial staff in the year 2000. And I was like, this is the life that I want. And that's what I thought I was signing up for, Jesse. I thought it would be all trips to Hawaii, and yet no. So I was really in the first wave of people that were laid off. And it had literally just never occurred to me that this could happen. I mean, first of all, it was my first job out of grad school. So I didn't know what was what, but I just never thought the journalism wouldn't be a secure industry. And I think for a lot of people who are experiencing a layoff now or who might feel that they are threatened with such a thing down the line, I mean, no one foresaw a pandemic like this. And so it's not like people have necessarily had a long time to think, oh gosh, I see all my friends around me being laid off. I should probably be cooking up a plan B for many people who are experiencing it today. It is coming like a bolt out of the blue and suddenly they have to deal with this very rapidly and very quickly. If you are in a place where you're needing to come up with something new or you suspect that you may in the future, how do you even start to think about what that means for you? Well, there's a couple of ways to think about it. So the first is about the urgency level, essentially. Because if you are in a position where you don't necessarily need to earn money tomorrow, but you think, oh, okay, this is a wake up call. I need to start planning for it. Then whenever there's a longer time horizon, you can be a little bit more thoughtful a little bit more deliberate. And you can start taking what I will call longer term steps that will position you better down the road. And so there's activities that you can do in that situation. Maybe it is starting a blog or a podcast or starting to write and create content on LinkedIn, something that can establish your expertise in your field, whether you want to continue in your current one or maybe you want to plan a longer term pivot and transition to another one. And those are great ways to get started and lay the groundwork. I want to jump in there and really hammer that home a second because this really is your superpower Dory. You are personally very, very good at it. One thing that I think is new about the time that we live in right now is that it used to be that if you were a journalist, as you began, and as I am, then it made sense for you to be writing on these platforms branding yourself as it were. But today, kind of anything that you want to do professionally, you're going to better position yourself for the future if you brand yourself through content. And I think that's really overwhelming for a lot of people. And a lot of people ask me, and so I would ask you, where do I begin? How do I know what is useless and spinning my wheels and what matters? I will second what you're saying. I think it really is important because ultimately, when you are creating content, we are putting something out into the world, that is the way that people who do not already know you personally can get a better sense of who you are as a person and what's powerful about that is it eliminates a large part of the risk that's involved in hiring you. And whenever you can do that, it is way better for your career. If you can make it less risky for people to pick you rather than someone else, that is a great thing. So one of the best ways that you can get started is literally to just make note of all of the questions that people ask you all the time. You're at a cocktail party. You're hanging out with people, and they have questions about your field, your industry, they want to know certain things. Maybe there's myths or misconceptions that bother you. You might have a contrarian opinion. You might say. No, location based interfaces are not the future of XYZ. Well, okay, tell us why, share your opinion. Put it out there. If you don't feel ready to start putting your own opinions out there, something that I tell people is a fantastic way to get started with training wheels is to interview other people. To reach out to colleagues or senior leaders or even somebody potentially who has a book out, I can guarantee that for many people, if you're not talking about world renowned level, almost anyone with a book wants to promote that book. And if you say, hey, can I interview you? Can I talk to you and write something about it, even if it's for your LinkedIn page, or if it's for something on a platform like medium where anyone can contribute, the odds are, they may well say yes, and it's a great way to help shine a light on someone that you admire and also begin to create content under your name and to hone your own thinking about professional development

"Through in depth interviews you'll learn about their work, their goals and what inspires them as creative individuals. Here's your host, Maurice cherry hello everybody and welcome to revision path. Thank you so much for tuning in. I'm your host, Maurice cherry. Got a couple of quick announcements. First off, if you haven't seen it already, we released our holiday gift guide. Just a few weeks ago, we did a kind of earlier on because we know that, you know, there's still supply issues in terms of shipping and all that sort of stuff. So instead of us releasing our gift guide in December like we usually do, we did it much earlier in November. So if you haven't seen it yet, go check it out. It's all revision path dot com. As soon as you go to the website, just click the pop up that comes up, it'll take you right to it. I'll also put a link to it in the show notes if you want to check it out. Had a lot of fun putting it together so I really hope that you enjoy it. Secondly, we released a bonus episode a couple of weeks ago in case that hadn't hit your feet yet. We did a episode on the design of Black Panther Wakanda forever. It's a really great conversation with myself, Jordan green, Regina Gilbert, and Paul Webb. And we not only go into the plot of the movie, but the music, the symbolism, the art, and the overall design, really great. If by chance you're on Twitter and you've seen Hannah beechler talking about the production design, this episode is an excellent compliment to what she's doing there. So you see the movie, go check out that bonus episode. We did it right around. I think a week after the movie came out, so make sure you go check that out. Also, if you listen to the show for any amount of time this year, then you already know what I'm going to talk about next. It's the tenth collective. So the ten collectivist kind of changed a bit over the month since we launched it earlier this year. Of course, it includes our job board, which is now the tenth collective job board, but the tenth collective is also a talent collective initiative that's from revision path and state of black design. So if you're a company and you want to add a listening to our job board, you now get access to members of the tenth collective. And if you're a black designer looking for work like if you've been impacted by any of these layoffs that have happened this year in tech and design, you want to be a member of the tenth collector because what that is is a

A highlight from The four-day work week: luxury or necessity?

"Thanks to Deloitte for sponsoring this episode. Hey everyone, it's Adam grant. Welcome back to rethinking my podcasts on the science of what makes us tick. I'm an organizational psychologist and I'm taking you inside the minds of fascinating people to explore new thoughts and new ways of thinking. I'm excited to bring you one of my favorite conversations I've had this year. It happened at the World Economic Forum in Davos. When a government minister, a global CEO, a policy leader, and a social entrepreneur, all walked in for a panel I was hosting. I'm shortening the work week. Get ready to learn from Hillary cottam, Jonas pricing, Anne Marie slaughter, and ahu del rumi. They've all played major roles in rethinking and reshaping how we spend our time. Welcome everyone. I am thrilled to welcome you all to the four day week discussion, which I'm very glad we're having on a Wednesday instead of a Friday because then maybe no one would have shown up. I'm Adam grant, I'm an organizational psychologist and author. And I've been fascinated by this question of why do we work the amount that we do for a long time? I study work for a living. But I don't think it should necessarily necessarily define us. And it was about a century ago that Henry Ford not exactly known for his enlightened views on management and taking care of humans, reduced the workweek from 6 days to 5. Because he found that people were more productive, morale went up. There was more loyalty. There was lower turnover. And he said it was good for business. And then we could start to wonder, well, why are we now stuck on 5 days? Was that ordained from on high? Or is this in fact a human invention that deserves to be rethought? A lot of organizations around the world are rethinking the work week right now. You've seen the trials by the Icelandic government by Microsoft Japan. There's a New Zealand insurance company that's been doing it for years. And the data are really encouraging so far. It's still early, but for the most part, performance has either gone up or stayed the same. And people end up having more time to live their lives. And if there is a silver lining of COVID, it has to be that we rethink our priorities. That we may decide, we don't want our jobs to be the center of our lives. And we want to plan work around life as opposed to vice versa, which too many of us, particularly in the west have done for too long. So the purpose of the panel today is to talk about, is the four day week actually viable. If so, what should it look like? And how do we make it happen? Because I have met some people in Davos who do not think we should even work as few as 6 days. So I think we have, we have some minds to change. Let me start with social entrepreneur. Hillary cottam. Hillary, can you give us some history and walk us through? How did we get to 5 days a week and where should we be going? Okay, so let me say to start off the question was necessity or luxury and I think that this is a complete necessity for environmental reasons for human well-being flourishing reasons and also for economic reasons. And I think what's really interesting is that when you ask me about history is that we think time is a mutable, but if we look at the history of work, it changes. So we used to live by prayer time, some societies still do. Then we moved to agrarian time. Then we moved to industrial time, which you've referenced, which was really complicated. I mean, the reason that we have in Western Europe and maybe in the U.S. kind of big clocks in our town squares is because the biggest problem industrial leaders had was getting people to work on time because working to a clock with such a kind of alien idea. And now, of course, we've been internalized the clock. But when industrial time started, people thought that there would be radical experiments. And one of the most interesting is Kellogg's in the 1930s. It was one of the biggest factories the breakfast cereal, he offered his workers 6 hour shifts from 8 hours. For exactly the same pay. And what happened was that people flocked to kennels, journalists, that Hoover administrators, social scientists, their amazing household studies of what happened because everybody thought industrialization would lead to less work. And so what's really interesting is that at Kellogg's productivity went up, dramatically, accidents went down, the economics of the company really changed. And people's lives improved. People said that they had, quote, more life that they could fit in, taking care of people. They had time to make things, they ran their own sports teams, things fitted into their lives. And what we know now is that, in fact, that wasn't the kind of experiment that it's very interesting why not, which we probably don't have time for, but even before the pandemic, the ILO and WHO said that work was killing us. And for the last two years, I've been running workshops with workers and kind of post industrial places. And what they ask for is not a four day week. What they ask for is a rethinking of the linear life with less work. So I think it's a necessity, but it doesn't go far enough. Because four days is a male solution to this problem, because basically it doesn't think about care because care of our children or our parents or just being with friends doesn't happen in four days, it happens around the day. So what we actually need to do is rethink the boundaries of time between work and care and rethinking the linear life, of course, doesn't mean just the work study kind of in blocks. And maybe we need some new boundaries so that we do have time to play and to be and so on. So a four day working week, a necessity, a start, but I think not the picture. I think we could get on board with that. To be really clear and how many days you think we should be working total though. Are you advocating for a two day week a one day week?

Let's start the show. All right, so tell us who you are and what you do. Chris Rudd, founder and CEO of shy by design. And my world is to give leadership to the organization as we practice our antiracist design and systems and social service work around the country. House 2022 been going so far. It's been good. It's been busy, I think, because our work is again centered on anti racism and designing antiracist outcomes. After the racial awakening of 2020, lots of organizations and institutions are trying to figure out a, how are they perpetuating systemic racism and then B figuring out pathways to stop and from our perspective, hopefully, to heal the communities and folks that they've harmed over the past. So yeah, it's been a lot. Great work, but also heavy work. Yeah, I can imagine. So I would guess you probably got like an influx of work during that summer of 2020. I think there's a lot of people I spoke to on the show where during that summer are like right after that summer, they just kept getting hit up with requests to speak or to consult or to work or anything like that. Did you kind of have that same swell of interest during that time? Yeah, a lot of speaking, I think during that time, particularly people were really trying to wrap their heads around what it was. And so there was a lot of, can we just talk to you? We want to hear what you're thinking about this. Then the work started to pick up, but we actually developed a rubric for our firm on what we would do and what we wouldn't do. So we really started to vet the organizations that wanted to work with us to see if they were actually about the change that they say they were or if it was just we want to put a black face to the work to somehow validate the efforts, even if they knew it was going to fall short. And even if they didn't know, we would work with them to say, hey, here's where we see your shortcomings. And if they were willing to understand and accept that, then we could move forward. If they weren't, then we were happy to walk away. That's good. 'cause I can imagine people probably came all out of the woodwork that found your firm and was like, wait a minute, that's a black guy. Let's talk to them. Let's see if we can help it. Yeah. And then really, you know, they thought they knew. That was a lot of them. All we gotta do is just, it would come out in this way. All we have to do is just make this one simple change. And boom, racism is gone or, you know, we will function differently. And the hard part for us is helping them understand that changing an organization changing a system, an institution is a huge shift or requires large scale shifts from top to bottom, not just in terms of personnel, but also in terms of philosophy, practices, policy, right? All these organizational structure. And so that was a hard thing for folks to deal with, right? It's been doing this thing for so long and from your perspective, you've been doing a great job, right? Profit margins may be through the roof or you've put out a couple of surveys of rate us and for the most part you send them to people that like you and you're like, yep, that was a great and then the negative ones that come back. You're like, oh, they don't really get it. And so, yeah, it's been interesting journey. Well, let's kind of dive in more and talk about your firm's shy by design. What you describe as a collaborative and cultivating space for designers of color, like that already just that hit me like a ton of bricks there. Tell me more

A highlight from A guide to surviving layoffs

"It's been more than three years since I have been creating this show most of that time with our fearless producer, Sarah storm. And in all that time, we haven't had a moment quite like this in our economy and at work. I'm talking about layoffs. Any other I've been moments where there have been a lot of layoffs. The beginning of COVID, for example, all of a sudden it seemed like everything was in flux, but that moment was a cute, and it shifted quickly. This fall feels different. There's been a long prolonged even time of resizing and rightsizing companies with names you would never expect to hear layoffs from our reducing their staff by significant numbers. And maybe you're one of the people who has been impacted by that. Today's episode is for anyone who has layoffs on the mind. I don't know that we have the answers at hello Monday. I don't know that we have new jobs. I don't know that we have a promise that everything is going to turn out okay. But what we do have is experience so much collective experience of the listeners who've gone through these experiences. And of me and Sarah and let me tell you, Sarah, in particular, she's kind of an expert on these things and deeply passionate about them. And so this week, Sarah is going to host a very special episode on layoffs. Here's Sarah. Thanks, Jesse. My spouse and I are no stranger to layoffs. Between the two of us we've experienced several over the last decade. The reasons were different every time, but that never made it second, any less. Each time we ramped ourselves into survival mode, we freaked out, sometimes we fought no matter the circumstances we felt so scared and so alone. Like Jesse said, we can't stop layoffs at hello Monday. But we were thinking maybe we could help with the scared and alone part. So if you're newly laid off or you think you see a layoff coming down the horizon, today's episode is especially for you. For the next half hour or so, we've got your back. First, we're going to hear from some hello Monday listeners who have been through layoffs of their own. Then I'm going to sit down with Andrew seaman. He is the host of LinkedIn's get hired and he's the guy at LinkedIn to hear from on job search and careers. He's going to offer some tips and advice for how to make it through from wherever you are right now to your next job. First up, we'll meet swetha regmi. Sweaters a career and resume strategist and CEO of her own company, teach and do. Here's her last story. When I got laid off, everyone's like, hush hush, like on my body it's my fault. You know, I'm so embarrassed. People need to hear. They're not alone. I was laid off in one minute over the phone when I was actually working from home. I was sick. So the other people were let go before me. I think 9 of them. And then I was supposed to be on that batch. So they did it over the phone. I was in the banking field, contact center. Yeah, and I was managing team. At that time, I had a leadership experience of more than a decade. Sweater had a sense that something was up. But that didn't make it easier. After the fact, swetha realized that her identity had become totally bound to her job. And she needed to do something totally different to work through that. I was relating myself so much with a title. I felt like I was nobody once I lost that title. Once the title was taken away, I did not know who I was. And I really had a self doubt and very, very low confidence. And I did not have a career clarity. How do I bounce back? And I wanted to go out there and do something really meaningful, so I could feel that I am, you know what? I'm not at the worst moment, and there are a lot of people out there in the world. They probably do not have basic needs. So I decided to go volunteer back home. I'm from Nepal. So I pick one charity. We used to sponsor a lot of kids there. I wanted to meet them. Those are my kids. I felt empowered and an I felt so blessed when I came back. I was fully charged, and I thought, hey, you know what? They took my title away, but they can never take my brain in skills and that was the emotionally healing moment for me. After that, sweater tried to go back to her old industry. But she wasn't happy there anymore. Instead, her side hustle started looking more and more appealing. I was doing this career coaching career consulting to newcomers and immigrants in Canada already on the side but not charging them. So these were my impact that I was feeling it. I'm very good at it. And then I was so good at promoting my direct hire as well. So I thought, you know what, this is the industry I want to be part of it. So I started helping people out for free, free reviews, free coaching, and interviews, and results were really great. So I said, you know what? I'm going to officially launch and now I'm going to charge people as well. And that's when she founded her company teach and do. Now she helps others

A highlight from Reconnecting With Yourself with Samantha Tovera-Agustin- CR90

"Now, as you'll hear from Samantha, she and I first connected in 2018 when she dropped me a note after watching my TEDx talk, and we've remained in touch since, watching her career evolve over the past few years, has been really fascinating and it's not every day that I cross paths with people who make a big decision to let go of a well paid stable job to make an international move. So I was really excited to get her onto the show so you could hear how she came to her decision to do this. You can get all the show notes from today's conversation at career relaunch dot net slash 90. Samantha spoke with me from baguio city in the Philippines. Hey Samantha, welcome to the career relaunch podcast. It is great to reconnect with you and to have you on the show. Hello there. How are you? Good. Good to see you again. Oh my gosh, it's good to see you. It's good to catch up with you. Now, you and I haven't spoken in a really long time until we hopped on this call a few seconds ago. So I've got so many questions I want to ask you about your life in the Philippines and your career trajectory since we last connected and how you came to the decision to move back to the Philippines but I'd love to just start by getting a sense of what you're focused on right now in your career and your life and can you also just tell me where exactly you are situated there in the Philippines. Yes, so we could start with where we are in the Philippines. We live in a small city called baguio city. This is actually where I pretty much grew up until we moved to California when I was in high school. But there's a lot of things that I'm focused on right now, personally and my life and my career. Personally, our family is about to hit our one year living in baguio. We moved from California last year. And then my husband and I have two small children, 5 and two. So they are definitely keeping us busy right now. Our eldest started kindergarten this year. She is doing ballet and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. So her schedule is actually started. I know, right? It's pretty awesome. It was pretty awesome. It's a pretty good balance, right? And then my husband and I now that we have a lot more time, we try to be more intentional to reconnect with each other. We actually have time to breathe and go on dates once a week. Even if it's just a coffee date for an hour and unplug, we have this rule to not talk about our to do list for about an hour and just talk about something else. Show whatnot. And then for me personally, I also got to reconnect with my childhood best friend, like I've known her literally since birth, our dads have been college friends and we grew up together and now we're doing yoga every week. Like aerial yoga, which is very like something that I probably would not know in a million years that I would do as a hobby, but it's pretty exciting, something to look forward to every week. So that's a little bit of my personal life. Career wise, you know, right now I'm actually helping my husband build history to business, which recently opened August of this year. So he said instructor, but I'm really managing the front and back end operations of the business, which is exciting. And then I working to relaunch my Filipinos next subscription box business called masura box, one that I started in the peak of the pandemic. So I temporarily had to pause that and you could probably talk about that later. Because during our move, I had to pause it for a little bit, but expecting to relaunch it next year. And then lastly, I'm still working as an HR consultant with actually two different firms. One based in Canada and one based in the U.S., both jobs allow me to have this flexible schedule that I have right now. So I was pretty exciting right now here. Super exciting and you and I actually haven't spoken in months and I just got an email from you a couple of weeks ago just as we were preparing for this and I think one of the things you mentioned there and I'd like to talk about this before we go all the way back in time and talk about your career revolution. You mentioned you have reconnected with one of your childhood friends. And I remember getting your email and that got me thinking a lot about friendship and adult Friends versus childhood friends. Any major revelations for you as you've reconnected with her after all these years? Yes, I think definitely hanging out with your childhood friends and people that you grew up with in grade school and in high school brings out your immature self. I think, you know, I'm not saying one is better than the other. You have those more profound conversations with your adult Friends, although I still have them with my childhood friends, but I think I truly get to be my immature self without fear of judgment, being with the people that I grew up with, because they saw everything. They saw the good the bad, the ugly first heartbreaks, first boyfriends, you know, I think it's definitely different dynamic and so glad that I got to reconnect with most of them, living here. I know that you haven't always been an HR consultant. You certainly haven't been someone who has moved from the U.S. to the Philippines until now. This is your first big move back home. Can we just go all the way back in time and can you just tell us a little bit about your time as a child growing up in the Philippines and what was life like for you there? I actually was born in Manila, which is more south of where baguio city is. But then I think we moved to bio city at two years old. So I really, you know, I grew up here, so I went to school here. I develop all of my childhood friends, like all of my friendships are here, right with all of my childhood friends. And my childhood was pretty amazing. My dad is a doctor. He is a general surgeon, but also focus on cancer surgery, and he's still had a semi retired still doing that just to keep his routine going. My mom, she at that time, she was actually working in human supplements for the government, but then when we moved here to baguio, she helped manage this corporation this clinic that my dad and other doctors like they ran this clinic that is focused on occupational therapy and she was pretty much managing that business for a while when I was growing up. They had my childhood like I, you know, I have an older sister and a younger brother. My parents were definitely intentional with creating those core memories per se, creating those memories for us as kids. So we would travel all over the Philippines at least three times a year together with my childhood best friend, which I do yoga with now. Our families with truly go to on trips together, and I think that's always the highlight every year. Where are we going to travel to next? So our family naturally just love traveling. So I was here until high school, but a little background about my dad's family and how we came to the states is my dad's family actually was already set to go to the states in the 70s. I think it was, he has four siblings, you know, my grandparents and they were all set to go. But then my dad was still studying medicine when he was here and he wanted to finish up and he was going to follow, but then of course he fell in love with my mom. They got married and he did not want to separate from us as a family. He wanted to petition us as a family. It was a long process. I didn't know at that time that we were petitioned as early as thoroughly 90s and didn't get approved until early 2000s. So to get a Visa to move to the United States, you're talking about to get our permanent residency

What Is the Value of a College Degree?

"Hi brian. Thanks for coming on the newsworthy fisher. I appreciate it. So i let me just ask. What's your take on the value of a college degree in today's world. Shoot we wanna value in having that college degree but when it comes to employment and job opportunities in some ways it's becoming less valuable because of how competitive the labor market is become as you look up and down the labor market from not just hourly employees retail employees but salaried up and down the continuum what companies are finding is that there's not enough people for all of the jobs that they want to hire for so one. They're relaxing a lot of the historical constraints that they've had on the jobs that they're hiring for and that includes things like previous experience educational certifications and different degrees. That people have had so a lot of companies in particular across the last two or three years have been relaxing many of those constraints. The other thing that's going on is that for people that might have some of those degrees or experiences or whatever it may be. They're also able to ask for more money in the labor market so the other reason why companies are expanding their horizon of who to hire. Is that for people without college degrees. They're able to find that job and they're willing to extend an offer them. But perhaps at a slightly lower compensation level than people who do have a college degree

How To Keep Your Job On Vacation With Hubspot's Pamela Bump

"Pamela as marketers. Get a break as well. Some of us wanna take a vacation but you know marketing never stops how marketers keep their job while they're on vacation i think there's two elements to marketing teams keeping their jobs while on vacation. I you look at the marketer the marketer which i'll use myself as an example we've all been through a wild year we've had a lot of pivots. Twenty twenty was so wild and unprecedented. We all wanna break. I wanted a break. Everyone on my team definitely wants a break but we want to take that break without throwing any of our processes off so one of the things that i do is focused on really strong communication. I regularly have one on ones with teammates that i work with most often and at these one on ones i might give them a heads up saying. Hey i'm gonna take some time off at this time. If you're going to take some time off let me know. And then we'll come up with a plan of how we can best prepare each other for this time off so we make initial plans there and then on top of that. I will email my team. And i'll say just a heads up that next week. I will be off from this date to this date. Here is my out of office. Plan for example when i'm running emails. I usually schedule the blogs emails a week or so ahead of time. If i'm going to be out. But i will pick another responsible person. A. dr is what we call them. A designated responsible individual to take over the email of something needs to be changed or content. Isn't gonna go out that we've scheduled so that's one of those things l. Include in my out of office plan of who to reach out to. If something urgent happens. And i will also remind people of when they can reach out to my manager could she can make calls for me usually end. That's just a good way to remind people that i'll be out. Usually nothing urgent will happen in the summer. When i when i have taken time off but it's good to have that information and people know whether something is something they should email me about and i'll return the message as soon as i get back or if it's something needed to reach out to another teammate. About but i usually try to schedule as much in advance as possible and then make a little out of office plan.

The Theory Of Relativity in Consumer Decisions

"All know about uncle. L. e. equals m. c. squared. But that's not the relativity calculation that i'm talking about what i'm talking about is a calculation that we pretty much all make before we make a purchase certainly before we make a non essential purchase and it goes a little something like this. Let's say i'm at the pub. And the price of a state is four dollars more than the price of a boo coincidentally. The price of a beer is also four dollars so now the relativity calculation. I need to make ease. Do i have a stake and one beer or do i have a burger and to bees. Pretty easy decision. Or let's say you booking a flight and the price of an upgrade to business class is two thousand dollars now you could use that two thousand dollars when you get to the other end to have two nights in the suite at a fancy swanky hotel in town so the relativity discussion and calculation. You need to have is. What's the relative value. Is that gonna give me more value at the other end or am i better off spending the two thousand now to sit in a slightly bigger box and maybe have metal cutlery. Instead of plastic utensils on the plane these are the sorts of calculations that you will consume as a making whenever. They're buying something especially when it is non essential so you need to be aware of that when you have both setting your pricing and also sending your marketing you need to make sure that you are conveying the values and the benefits of your product. Because you know damn well that they are making a calculation relativity calculation of what else they could be doing with their money so when you think about the theory of relativity you've got uncle. Albert's theory equals mc squared uncle trance theory. It's all about how many bees you can have with your steak

The Manager and the Vaccine

"Cain that pandemic of cove nineteen has made our lives much more interesting to say. The least interesting is the word we're gonna use for the purposes of this context and the roles of us at work and of us as managers at work have become much harder as we've been saying for years. Remote management is much more challenging then managing in person and most managers. Let's be honest. We're barely keeping up before they moved remote and now this new world the remoteness of it all the complexities. That come with all of this whole situation throws even more at us. Remote management the lack of communication zoom. Burn out with shop. Priorities supply chain disruption travel restrictions budget. Layoffs tension challenges. I mean there's a lot and here we are one more to add to. Our list of stressful items is vaccinations. What is the manager's role in terms of nations. And how do we do our duty and as always we've got the answer for you so we are gonna cover four things today. I private organizations are within their rights to mandate vaccines second managers. First responsibility is to the organization third. The manager must support organizational vaccine roles. Fourth and finally effective managers will communicate frequently with their directs. We start with the fact that a private organization is within their right here. Yup obviously we have suspect or we assume that you know this and in case you don't private organizations at least in the united states are entitled to enforce any reasonable precaution that is in the service of the organization's mission mission and

How to Achieve Your Greatest Purpose With Serial Entrepreneur Michael Koenigs

"Let's go through the stages of purpose you broken down into three different stages. What is that all about her right. So think of like this our first stage or what i often call are doing stages imagine when you get paid to do something that you could be flipping burgers working at a gas station or whatever that may happen to be. It's task oriented. Where really you are a meat puppet. You know you're just doing something for the money and also you're trying to just cover your basic needs your maslow's hierarchy of needs in the grand of things and the next level is where you're at your knowing phase and you are maybe getting paid for knowing something's got to be a white collar job But then you go through your next phase in life for your at your being phase and that is where you're paid for who you are not what you know not what you do and i think there's a fourth level to this so this is different than the stages but the force level is being a full human expression. Not just a human being meaning to to express yourself where you're being rewarded for your expressions in life now. What does that mean in terms of the first second and third stages so first stage is the basic needs. The maslow's the second stage is The experiences you're providing in the third stage has to do with true transformation your true purpose in life where you've done the work you know who you are. You know your greatest value. Your unique abilities are what we call your superpowers and you found a way to provide huge transformative value. But here's the big kicker. The highest state is when you help other people find their purpose and you help them. Identify and and In help them achieve and be in that state all the time so that is really usually the final stage of most people's lives is helping people identify find live inside their
