He has experienced. Cloud journey firsthand. I am honored to introduce a colleague. A mentor and a friend pat spencer. Welcome to the show pat. Jeff thanks a lot it's It's really a pleasure to be here. Great talking with you and look forward to our discussion today so before we dive into your cloud journey. I'd like you to share your background and some about the unique perspective that you bring to our conversation today. That sounds good as you know. It is varied so hopefully the audience will be able to follow but i actually started my career in banking graduated from ball state university and for the next ten years. Really dedicate myself to banking with an emphasis on commercial banking working with businesses on basically how to finance and manages our companies as appropriate But that led to a desire to move into technology because of some companies. I really became good friends with at the end of the day. So i left banking one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and went to work for local indianapolis software company called baker hill which ironically sold software to banks Which was a good entry through me to continue my my professional sales career but also step into the world of technology and so i spent a few years with them. We were acquired by a company called experience. You may have heard of them and stayed with them for about another five years. But then i started to get a little itchy if you will to do something kind of crazy and so i actually went and worked in indycar motor sports for a couple of years. Were very fortunate enough to be executive vice president of operations for panther racing. I say that because our sponsor was the national guard in just the spent a couple of years working with the minimum of the national guard was just such a privilege. It was so far from what i was doing that. It was just a one and refreshing but yet just a little bit of a payback to our men and women of the armed of the armed services but from there. I really did not like being away from home. One hundred eighty two hundred days a year to get back into technology. Did so an. And that's actually wearing you. And i met you were at cio of goodwill. And i was your lackey. Sales rep for a couple of years. Our lacking sales but worked at another local company called blue lock where we focused on infrastructure as a service disaster recovery as a service in obviously eventually was acquired in work there for about six years which actually then led me to where i'm at today in. That is the managing director of money tree. Managing a saz company infants ac and we are owned by accu chek in other indian owned company that provides trust accounting software and i basically manage the business unit For money tree underneath accu.

Bringing Precision Cancer Care to Dogs
"Joining us. Oh thank you so. It's exciting to be here spend some time with you. We're gonna talk about cancer precision medicine and dogs one health and it's fighter accu- offering is seeking to bring advanced cancer diagnostics and treatment to for legged patients. Let's start with the connection between human and canine cancer. How much of an overlap is there. It's actually pretty significant. So dogs and humans co evolved. Let's start there and sadly you know they share health and they shared disease and sadly share a lot of similarities cancers there's similar history logic appearance. There are similar tumor genetics molecular targets. There's metastasis you know the same kind of process there -peutic response immuno competency and Yeah so the one big difference is that there were for example. Six million dogs diagnosed with cancer in the us last year versus about two million people in the population of dogs much smaller is about ninety million. So you can see there that the incident prevalence is quite high. There's not only an overlap but there's also a significant gap in care when it comes to treating dogs with cancer. How big a gap is there between the state of cancer care for humans and dogs. That's a great question. So and really part of what drives our mission every day As the dog right is more and more beyond even best friend. Really family member and many of the advancements for human oncology have actually been tested on dogs right beagles however very little has made it back to the dog to actually help the dog as a patient not just a subject And so the difference is a stark for for example in the world of targeted therapies. Which is a class of drugs. Really from this century That's already been around for twenty years in in humans They're about twenty five of those therapies for humans. Fda approved and there's really only been one for dogs. We're changing that but that's the kind of gap At any given day on college that a human clinic might have. I don't know sixty tools in their hands and maximum in the veterinary world. According to our opinion leaders would be maybe thirteen tools including everything under the sun radiation. He will so. The gap is pretty big. You talked about some numbers relating to incidents. But what's the market opportunity. So the market opportunity. I how i look at it. We're creating it so it's not super the fine but the market opportunity is that we have six million dogs right Diagnosed a ready. That diagnosis is pretty There's been some investment behind that by the parent by the family It's not you know it's not ten bucks. Probably you know all in out of pocket between two hundred fifty dollars all the way to two thousand defending those a surgery. So that right there gives you one gives you a dimension however Only you know we think it's even less than twenty five percent there actually medically treated today. We think that that's because of the current will Frankly are mostly from last century. And are you know even their their hard the basically hard on family right to go to a specialist clinic. maybe they don't have one nearby Drop off their dog in cova on the sidewalk. They don't even talk to the clinician face to face that is and they're you know for baby call. It will be in the clinic for a long time for an infusion. It's chemo so it's very onerous and tough We think you know we could do better. And we can bring more tools and increase accessibility. What's the vision for one. Half what trying to do a one health is actually a movement. It's the shared health and disease the oneness across species. So we are looking at you. Know what has In the in the context of oncology we're looking at what has moved forward the human world that we could lift and bring back to the dog and on the other. You know if you think of it on both sides of the leash then walk. Can we learn finchley from the pet dogs. Cancer journey which happens at a vari accelerated speed bright which You can basically the lifetime of the dog right is shorter than ours so you can just see things and again a similar journey right with metastasis and whatnot What could we learn you. Could we interrogate. Could we find where are the biomarkers similar and then look at for example combinations of drugs right we understand that cancers multifactorial and that you know likely the you know kind
Widgetsmith: Pivoting Your App
"So there've been some big changes in widget smith recently. I was wondering if you could go into that a little bit. So when i made its myth. The sort of audience and the expectation i had for it were very different than the way the app ended up going where i was. I was making an app. That was very much for a very particular audience that it's like my kind of key audience that loves apple stuff and you know just enjoys like really getting in there and tweaking stuff and it's like i wanted to build that all these of nuance features and really get into the weeds. And that was the app that i built then. Of course the app ended have turned out that it was for those people certainly but it ended up that those people represent a teeny fraction of the actual user base at the application that actually the main use of the app and the like in fact the reason the apple is successful is because it had just enough kind of like teaming and aesthetic and color and font and all those kind of choices in it to allow people to express themselves with their widgets and that was not something i expected. That was not something that i ever really saw coming for the app. But that's sort of where the app absolutely went which was interesting. Because it meant that very quickly. I had to look at the backlog and the roadmap that i had built sort of for widget smith as i was going attended to i have a list of features of things. I want to build an modes. I want to support and at some point after to say this is version one. This is going to be version. One point one. And one point one version two of which smith those features are very much more like doubling down on kind of more nuanced and More and more niche kind of data sources or thing or features that would sort of make the app working in sort of more and more unique ways whereas ultimately what i footed site became clear what most people want. The app to do is to make their home screen. Look pretty and adding like some soup like okay making it so that you can accu can give it a url that downloads and parsons jason. And lets you visualize that. Jay ceann In an interesting way like that was one of the things on my version one point one roadmap like that feature is really cool and interesting and maybe one day i'll get to it but that is useless and confusing to ninety nine percent of the people who use which smith that is not what they're interested in and that's not at all what they want and so i found myself in this really funny place where i kind of had decided i was gonna you know how i was going to pivot the app essentially and pivot. Is that the fancy silicon valley. Word that i feel like is a bit overused but in this case i feel like it's very appropriate for that situation where you thought were building something and instead of it being the thing that you thought you were building the turns out the audience and the market for your app is very different and you kind of have to just rapidly. Turn your whole application around. 'cause i mean you don't have to. I could have just kept going with my crazy features and ignored the ninety nine percent of the people using the app who don't care or need those features but you know that that would feel foolish. That would feel like. I was missing out on a huge opportunity for the application for to grow frigid develop for a to have more staying power and retention with those people and so the one story short version is. I ended up essentially completely. Didn't throw away my roadmap and instead have been focused entirely on very aesthetic in teaming and designed based features for the app and so in version two of which it smith which came out a couple of weeks ago. is very much entirely focused now on the concept of themes and that you can build themes snap comes prebuilt with Dozens of different aesthetics. That are kind of easy to use the app. And then you can tweak and customize them and it totally changes thanks that concept and it's so far the responses have been positive for it and i think it's appropriate and it was just a really interesting thing to have to just decide that you know those plans i had for. This app are gone I'm having to think about what people are actually using it for and then the through that process and this is well the most the episode is probably as the interesting reality of how do i. How do i work out a what i should build. And then how do. I make that change in the app. In a way that doesn't alienate. People doesn't confuse people management Surf from there.
Japan set for new prime minister after ruling party vote
"By the end of today, could Japan have a new prime minister? The departure of Shinzo Abe's due to ill health triggered a rapid and intense race within the country's ruling Liberal. Democratic Party today's voters among three contenders with a front runner Mr Abbas advisor Your Shahida suge he promises to maintain JAPA- Japan's current economic policies what I'm delighted to say our Tokyo Bureau chief know. Wilson. Joins me now good afternoon. Aloe Vera. What is the latest? Well the election is happening as we speak the members of the L. D. The parliamentary members are in a hotel in Tokyo casting their votes. I don't think it's going to take that long actually, and I expect the results to come out quite soon and you're right Mr Sugar is. Massively the favourite he's already secured seventy percent of the vote within the party the parliamentary multi, the votes he'll probably get most of those as well. So it really is sort of a formality, this election and what will happen next is on Wednesday the Diet will come into session and he will be. Made Prime Minister officially. What is it about your Shahida suge which seems to have guaranteed to convincing win for him. Well I think number one is he's ver- famously very loyal to Shinzo, Arbor, and his his platform is basically all just do more of the same. So he's not putting up any kind of different policies. It's really hard to cigarette paper between these two he's he's openly said he will continue the economic policy, the diplomatic policy, and that seems to be quite welcome within the party within the parliamentary party. Certainly. Now. The other two candidates. Very strong candidates, Mr Kishida, and and also Mr issued burner issues. We've talked about him quite often he's been. A strong critic of Shinto Arbor but those they can't win today almost impossible I. You know less this summer unbelievable event. But they're looking to next year I mean even though Mr Suge will win today, he can really only see out Shinzo Abe's term which would have finished next September, this term as president of the Party and the the term finish is September twenty twenty one when they will have to be another election. So the big discussion now is does Mr Suge immediately have a general election to. Cement his position. So I think that will be the big discussion next week. What is the popularity of him among Japanese citizens I e descriptions of him in the press did not paint him as a particularly pleasant. A warm character that many people would be inspired by in fact, the absolute opposite but it's only in the last couple of weeks at a twinkle in his eye appeared. Carefully contrived twinkle in his eye I mean he's been in front of the press twice a day every day for nearly eight years because he's been the spokesperson for Shinzo, Abe's government. So the press knows him very very well, I think his public persona is is not so clear people now know he's the son of a strawberry farm he's not from one of. These famous political families like Shinzo Bay Familia, Kishida, one of his rivals he's he's worked his way up, which is being a little bit of involuntary cheese talked about I'm a regular person. If I can become prime minister anyone can and they've tried to craft a bit of a warm personality saying he's got a sweet tooth. We've had a few friends wheeled out. From his his hometown, he comes from Accu in the north of Japan from a Small Town Newshour but I have to say the people they've they've brought out have rather confirmed that he was a pretty quiet nondescript character as a youth. You didn't really do much more than than than fish for trout and played baseball. He wasn't really marked out for political success. Oh I wouldn't say he's he's extremely charismatic and he himself admits he doesn't have much diplomatic experience. So that will be interesting because obviously one of the big relationships that Japan has its regional neighbors and with the US and I, I'm trying to imagine Yoshida and Donald Trump. That could be an interesting meeting. I think Mr Saga the the Polish that some of his. Colleagues, have and I I. HE admits that will be a new experience for him. I mean he indeed, I mean he's already said that if he does indeed secure the job, he will need the help of Shinzo rb when dealing with foreign policy as you say, it's going to be a different kind of. For in front facing world that the Japan will be pro presenting to following the departure Shinzo. but how much is there a real feeling that will be in the background despite his departure? I. Don't think he'll be in the background in any sensitive as a puppeteer, but I think the aims of his government will be pursued in one thing that's very interesting about sugar is he's not really an ideologue Shinzo had some quite. He had ideological positions are very well known. You know these nationalist positions very concerned to to reformulate the constitution Japan's pacifist constitution. He wanted to change that. Now really saga is not one go on about nationalism in any shape or form he's very pragmatic and everyone says the same thing he doesn't have a lot of charm sorry to say but that that's the the verdict on. Him when he goes into her and he's not dominating the room radiating charisma he looks at the small print and he's he's not really one for schmoozing but he wants to get things done and that's where he will differ from Shinzo obey. But I don't think he'll be grandstanding on the diplomatic
Houston spared from Hurricane Laura
"In the end hurricane. Laura, was even stronger than expected and landed even a little further east that meant good fortune for Houston less of an impact for Beaumont and bad news for communities in western Louisiana from Lake Charles to Cameron parish were Laura Landfall after midnight at one hundred, fifty miles per hour this hour will do what we can. To assess Laura's impact on Texas communities to our south and east as it has occurred if it has occurred, will also try to get a sense of how we can help likely more devastated communities across the border into Louisiana I. Let's walk through what we know about what happened overnight, and where we stand this morning news eighty, eight, Seventy Robinson is here with the very latest good morning. Good morning, Craig. That's right following multiple days of officials calling on residents to take this storm seriously, Houston for the most part was spared by Hurricane Laura hit landfall like you said, overnight just before a. m. as a cat four near cat five hurricane or Cameron Louisiana as thirty miles southeast of orange. Texas Governor Greg Abbott Craig made an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America just a few moments ago and said that about five to ten thousand coastal area residents evacuated from the storm and so far. There are no reports of fatalities. Lives may have been sade as a result of those who fled from areas in port author, Beaumont in Orange Texas and really Craig. Most of East Texas was largely spared from severe impacts of Laura as Port Authors Mayor Thurman Bardy spoke to NPR's morning edition and said that there had been minimal damage and was thankful for how the City Fared as port author. If you recall was one of the first cities in Texas to order evacuations ahead of the storm, of course, there'd been concerns of how evacuations would potentially be complicated by the corona virus pandemic. The mayor said that he felt. Pretty good about the decision to issue mandatory leaves. Emergency managers have accu is practice social distancing many wore masks evacuation buses had wipes and disinfectant on hand and hotel rooms were used across the state instead of large shelters. Now, closer to Houston Galveston county officials are saying it's safe to return to the area except for Bolivar Peninsula state. Highway Eighty seven, one, twenty four are still being cleared of of debris by Tex-. I by tax dot but they're expected to be opened later today the agencies also assessing conditions to restart ferry service to the peninsula. Houston's transit authority. Metro. Says it will resume regular service later this morning with Hov Hov lanes continuing its normal operators operation hours. So in essence Craig, it's it's back to for the immediate greater Houston region as we prepare for another hot sunny day.
1910 Edinburgh Missionary Conference
"In June of Nineteen Ten World Missionary Conference took place in. Edinburgh Scotland. This conference met for a total of ten days. It was international it was ecumenical. About twelve hundred delegates from mostly Europe and America and representing all sorts of Protestant denominations came together to spend these days talking about the need for world missions world missions can look like. In the beginnings then of the twentieth century, you can trace the roots of the World Council of Churches Actually. Back, to the Edinburgh Missionary Conference. The World Council of Churches was established in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty eight, and you could pull on the threads of various groups that led up to it and you'd be taken right back to Edinburgh Missionary Conference. It was a very pivotal moment in the twentieth century. So let's take a look at five aspects of the Edinburgh Missionary Conference. I as we've mentioned, it was ecumenical. Now at that time, it was predominantly Protestant when we're talking about ecumenical there were no Roman Catholics present. There were no Greek Orthodox president there were only Protestant denominations present. But as a term ecumenical continued to expand and expand and broaden in broaden. So. I you talk about within Protestant denominations then accu medical would come to mean Protestant and Catholic and Jewish. Then you would add Islam then you would add eastern religions today the word ecumenical is very broad in very elastic. Well. The second thing about the end borough missionary conference is related to that question of the Ecumenical Movement in that is the question of inclusive ism or pluralism. Then Borough Missionary Conference consisted of eight major reports, and one of them was on this topic the missionary message in relation to the Non Christian world and they began raising questions is Jesus Christ the only way Is the Bible, the true and final. Authority is Christianity that is biblically faithful Christianity is that the only true religion and so you can begin to see how those questions could be answered in the wrong way and lead to very deleterious negative consequences. Well, that's the question of inclusive ISM and pluralism. A third aspect of the Edinburgh missionary conferences that it did increase attention to missions. The nineteenth century, the eighteen hundreds was a great century of modern missions. It was the century of William Carey missionary. Expansion. Well, the twentieth witnessed even greater missionary activity, and during the Twentieth Century missionary activity was carried on even during and despite of world wars travel got much easier and so missions expansion increase. So the twentieth century was a great century of modern missions. One aspect of this in particular is our fourth thing and that is the impact on Africa. Of course, leading into nineteen hundred Africa was dominated by Islam and by the folk religions that were across the continent. But after this conference, significant attention was given to Africa and there was this major push missions. into the continent of Africa one book chronicling this was published in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, five, it was entitled Africa, an Open Door, and so the Edinburgh Missionary Conference inspired and encouraged mission endeavors. In Africa we'll fifthly the Edinburgh conference served to remind the delegates and the constituencies they represented of the great need of the big world that we live in in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ten, the world's population was one point five, billion people. In June, of twenty, twenty. The world population is estimated at seven point seven billion. It's the big world and that's a big need.
How Vivian Kaye Turned Her Hair Care Needs into a Multi-Million Dollar Biz
"K. is a fourteen year veteran entrepreneur who has bootstrapped to companies from the ground up for the last seven years. She has strictly focused on the e-commerce world where she built kinky curly Yacky, which offers textured hair extensions for black women to over one million in annual revenue Vivian has been featured on shop. Expert Academy Series Ted Conferences the way we worked and has been featured and digital publications such as Black Enterprise Magazine and refinery twenty nine Vivian, welcomed being boss. Thank you for having made such a pleasure to be here. Vivian! We've gotten to know you a little bit over the past couple of days. You've popped in on some of our sessions. You've been offering us so much guidance and. Radiance and your smarts and all of the things. So now I'm dying to hear your story like, can you, can we? Let's rewind a little bit and we're GonNa. Get into all of the wisdom that you have to share, but I want to know more about your entrepreneurial journey, so tell us like. Where did it begin? How did you get to where you are now being on Ted and refinery twenty nine this morning i saw on your instagram. You're on somebody's vision board like talk about goals. How did you get there? Honestly I really don't know. Because, it's not like being an entrepreneur was a big thing right, so you know back when I was growing up? Being an entrepreneur was for people who didn't have jobs. And so I kept you know I was always in jobs where the one person department one Person Marketing Department and then you know I was at a job one day and decided to start side hustling. So I started out my first business as a side hustle and then while I was running that side. Hustle I got fired for sorry I got laid off. That's the momentum. Laid off from that job, and then at that point I said. You know what let me just let me just go for it. Just go for it and do whatever I need to do. 'cause I'm young I'm free and I can. I can do whatever I want. And while I was running that business I started running, and then I had started a side hustle with kinky curly Yacky, so it was like I had businesses running at the same time so it wasn't something that I set out to do, but with both businesses I set out to solve my problem. And at the time I didn't realize that that was the best way to start a business. But that's what it was I. set out to start to solve my own problem or to solve a pain point that I saw people were having so so that's how my entrepreneurial journey began. What was the first sight hustle? The first sight has a wedding decorator. So all I would do is go in and decorate people's wedding so instead of being on a an event planner doing you know doing all those little things I focused on one thing and what it was I decided so there's a whole story behind that so I'm one of four girls and I'm the second the number two. So my older one was getting there. My older sister was getting married and she hired a decorator who who sent you decorate the wedding for? Say a thousand dollars right, so she paid her deposit. Everything was good, but two weeks before the wedding she came back and said I need another thousand dollars, but didn't have a reason why. Right so I thought well. Of course, she couldn't have paid for A. She couldn't afford to pay her, so she ended up having to hire different decorator that decorated did a crack tastic job. And so I'm like. Why is it so difficult? Why can't decorators just say that they're going to do X. Y.? And this is what it costs and Bass what they do and keep it simple, so then I thought well. I'm just GONNA I was been into decor and HGTV when TLC used to beat more home decor than reality so I would So I started I decided I wanted to be a wedding decorator I. wanted to create weddings that were simple, but fabulous so I would ask. My bride's like okay, so do you remember the last wedding that you went to? And they would say yes, will do you remember the centerpieces or the decor? Remember. It was pretty I'm like that's what we're going to do. So instead of spending mortgage down payments on decor. Why not create something that is memorable, but affordable and people just remember it was pretty, and that's it so that's what I set out to do. And it was a it was a great success, and this was a business that I started with no prior knowledge like I just figured it out as I was going along. And so I can tell that you're a branding lover at heart because you're like, forget pretty. I want memorable and I think this is going to be a thread that we we've through all of your stories, but before we get to connecting those thoughts. I went to hear more about kinky curly Yucky, so what was? What was the problem that that was solving? And how did well I I'm the worse doing I always do this. I always asked two questions in a row. So question one is more about kinky curly yacky. What problem did that solve? And then I'm really curious to hear a little bit more about how I do think that whenever we have side hustles and day jobs and we're trying on a bunch of different things they all start to. Tie together in some ways like we're always learning lessons from one thing to the next. I'm also really curious to hear. What lessons did you learn from wedding decorating that you're able to take to kinky curly yacky. That's a great question. Okay, so the first question was How can you KEROUAC even started? About problem so the problem was I as I was a wedding decker, and so I'm I. I actually live in Toronto, so it's one of the most Toronto Canada, and it's one of the most diverse cities in the world so I was doing everyone's wedding from you know the Muslims to South Asian to Indian to everyone, everyone's wedding so This is going to be a bit explain if anyone really wants to know the real detailed answer. I could always do that at a later point, but. For Black Women. We have to present. We have to show up in the world in a certain way, which is quote unquote presentable so most a Lotta Times wearing our hair, as it is naturally with kinky curly with kinky hair It's not professional. Why don't go professional? So I wanted something that looks like my hair. But would protect my hair because our hair is not suited to this north. American environment, it's it there's not moisture. It dries out really quickly but anyways I wanted something that looked like my hair and know what asked me where I bought it because I didn't want that whole. Nikki manashe thirty two inches of blonde wig down to my I wanted something that looked presentable. So I searched and searched and searched for something that looks like my hair, and then when I found it I weren't to a meet up. To just like a general networking event, and another black woman came to me and said WHO's your hairdresser? And what is your regimen for keeping your hair like that? And I said girl. This is a wave. And she was like I would buy. And this was in this was in two thousand eleven, so I thought well if she would buy it. And I bought it. There's gotta be at least a dozen. Other women would buy it to now. When I was looking to solve my problem, I saw I saw the gap in the market I. Thought There are no companies just selling kinky hair, but I was already running the successful decor business. I was buying my coach bags. I was going on vacation. I was happy with that, and then I decided then I thought well. You know you know. Weddings have a down sees. It feels like you know what I can't like. Itching the back of my brain, so then I said to myself you know what in the down season of of of Vivian the core I'm going to launch his company and I literally made up the name while I was in the shower like I was like Yankee curly. Jackie, O okay and I bought a domain name, and I launched it in December two thousand twelve, and it immediately took off. Okay so I actually do want to hear the details about the actual hair. You don't mind no worries because okay, so I remember talking to emily in the early days of ALMANAC supply company, which is her business and she was trying to find very specific candle containers to pour her candles into, and we talked about some deep googling like how you just have to search like. Get real good at searching. So how did you well? I guess two questions? Are It was a we've, but it looks natural so I think this goes back to that almost that brandon conversation of like it doesn't have to look quote Unquote Professional. Let's make it memorable like let's just make it bigger. Bigger let's make it more of a statement. which I think is so cool so I guess I have two questions here one. How did you find the natural hair? If there is a gap in the market? How did he find a? We've that had the natural texture and then in that might be getting too much of your secret sauce like you might not have to answer that one, but like how do you? How do you find the materials and then guess my next question is? How did you start to then scale and expound upon that not having any experience in that industry so how? Sold! The key was that I was trying to solve my own problem so What I was doing is I. Would I was doing that deep googling I was in facebook groups I was on hair care black hair care forums. Just you know just. Talking with other people and people of course at that time, a lot of people were sharing okay well. I bought this here I. Bought that there, and so that I would of course make note that, because again at the time I was not looking to start another business I was just looking to solve my own problems, so I wrote. You know I would contact every. Every single factor, every single manufacturer, every single website that said they would do kinky hair, and the once I found the one I was like. Wow, this, actually a pretty decent I would ask them to tweak it a little bit. Just a suit, my needs and they did it and I was like okay and I thought well after the girl confirmed my idea. I decided okay well. Let me see the state. Factory can still do it and I would order the same product under different names and asking to do different things to it, and they would do. So I thought okay. Okay. I'm onto something here. And so that's how that's how I was able to. I guess perfect the product because again. I I like to get high on my own supply, so that's the beauty of the businesses that I M my customer. I know what I'm looking for I know what problems I'm looking to solve I. Know What my pain points would be. And what other black women's pain points would be, and the only person who's able to address that is me. So of course I use that to my advantage You know to tell my brand's story but at the time again I listen, I'm an immigrant. I'm a college dropout and now a single mother. So I had no clue. About all these storytelling and branding mark I had no clue I just thought it was just doing what kind what came naturally to me. So so how I scaled that business well, I think one of the mistakes that a lot of people are making in starting businesses that they don't have an audience for the product that they have and so then what I had done again I inadvertently created an audience by by being on those facebook facebook. Forums a facebook groups that had black hair care forums because I was shining. Just being Vivian online people remembered me. So bad, and the funny thing was what I, when I when the business launched, no one knew it was me I didn't. I wasn't. My face wasn't the base of the brand it was just like here's some products. You guys will love Ed Oh. My Gosh and people bought it, but what happened was. I was facebook group and someone I didn't do. The WHO is on the back end of my website do that. Who has privacy on the back end of my product? Someone in one of the facebook groups created a fake place book profile and posted all my information in those facebook groups. Saying this is the person who owns that brand. So what she meant. To to like to help me to make me fail actually was what turned my like. What is what actually skyrocketed my business? Because once people found out that I was the person behind that brand, they were like well. Shoot I'm going to almost support her because she's this. She's that I remember she's Great. She's awesome, and that's what took off so I realized then that. My brand, my person like why. Is What is going to help me succeed in business. Amen I. Resonate so much with what you're saying and. I have branding agency as well and really focus on personal branding and I i. feel like one a lot of people always tell you you need to identify your customer and what they need, but I always think it really does start with you if you can start with what you need you like, you can trust that. We're not all that different and that if you can just get specific about yourself, you're going to be getting specific about your dream customer. Customer so we are so aligned there and then the fact that I mean it was an unfortunate, and you know really inappropriate way to learn the power of personal branding, but you did learn the power of personal branding, so that is incredibly exciting and I. WE'RE GONNA dig into more about like how you leverage that and who you are, and what you do, and how you bring it into your business and draw boundaries and all of the things but. We do have an attendee question that I. Want to slide in here if we may. I'm in this question is from. Death and I think especially for creatives. Who is you know most of our crowd here then we add like to hear your. Hear your thoughts on this, so here's your question. so Vivienne said she had the hair problem herself and chose to solve it, but what kept her on that path instead of ending up as an all purpose, beauty, Guru or similar. To be honest. Hair is not my jam. So really what I? How I think of it is just the ends to a means way or means to an end it's the means to an end, so my real goal is to give black women confidence to show up as they are in the world. So hair just so happens to be the the means to that end. So how I just stick to hair you know I'm pretty. I'm pretty good at focusing on the one thing like it's what I've learned is You know niche of and that's my I will preach about I say niche, but its niche. You know it's either. We can use them interchangeably potato potato. Okay, so with me I. Find that if You speak to a very specific group of people, and you sell them a very specific product. They will be your most loyal fans. They are cheaper to market to they. Are you know more about them? Especially when you already are them so for me that makes it very easy to stick to that one thing because I know that very well and I can speak to it now. Let's just by started venturing into. Say. Make up girl I'll even know how to put on eye shadow right so it wouldn't. It wouldn't. I wouldn't have authentic voice I can't lend that often into city to that product, but what I do know is hair. I'm not a hairdresser. I'm not a hair stylist. Because I had a passion for solving my own problem so that I could show up as quote. Unquote professional in the world. I can solve the I know what looks professional for me. You know I learned you don't like it. That's your problem. Not Mine Right, so we as a black women. What started in two thousand? I want to say. In Two thousand eleven two thousand twelve. Is that Youtube? We started all jumping on youtube and teaching each other how to care for our hair. We stopped putting before. We're used to put chemicals in our hair in order to straighten it to look to fit that European standard of beauty. But then we were like you know what I'm tired of that crap. We're tired of that. We don't want that if that's not Howard. The hair grows out of our heads. You're either going to accept this as we are or not right so so the goal of. Of making black women confident in how they show up in the world is really what keeps me focused on here. There's other people and I and I realized. I'm really good at that, so if I just if you just focus on the one thing that one goal your why. Then you're. You'RE NOT GONNA get distracted by all the Shiny Mirror. The the shiny objects that are floating around, because yeah I could make some easy money doing makeup, but I'm not passionate about that I. don't that doesn't that's not my jam? I love the what you did was instead of doing. The sheds are what people may have expected you to stuck with thing I think oftentimes people in this crowd see either see someone who have sort of diverged from that path, or so. They're thinking okay I. Should I should diversify as well or they sort of get these little inklings of like going to different. Different things I love that what you've done is just focused. You focused on doing the one being amazingly well exactly, and that's and that's the one, if I had to give one piece of advice to anyone is do that one thing and do it really well before you move onto anything else because you know doing that. One thing really really really really really really. Really really really advising that really do that. One thing really well. Guess what you can do anything you can apply that same, so that's what I learned in billions, the core I learned that if I kept it simple and I just focused on providing my brides with this one product and do it really well, it would speak for itself, so I took that same. Simple yet fabulous and I applied it to. Kinky Curly Aki. So people like what can I all? I'm explained the Kinky curly Yacky. What is that, so? It's Kinky kinky hair, and it's curly for curly hair, and then there's Yacky. So? Yuck, so yacky actually is short for Yak, or against the long overreact so back in the day when they wanted to mimic black women's hair straightened. They use hair from Jack the animal. So the industry just put an eye on the end and call the Yacky, so you would know what Jackie was. If you were a black woman, so any block won't be like. Oh! You got that Yacky in and so it's a sort of tongue in cheek, so you would have to be part of that target demographic in order to understand the name of the the name of the brand clear I love that. You're very specific about your dream. Customer to effect. Because I was her I get hot on my own supply. So at some point, did you end up closing the decorating business I did? I closed it I. Shut it down back in two thousand fifteen, and the only reason why I did is because I got practice. More. Yeah so I launched kinky curly. Aki in the summer of two thousand twelve by July of two thousand, thirteen. I was in the business was doing really well at that point? It was I was just doing just under four hundred thousand dollars in sales. and I found out in July I was pregnant. Anti ago. And so you know with my? With wedding core I had brides booked a year out. Right so so I was still doing those weddings, still going to the still going to meetings breastfeeding doing weddings that type of thing. And then I started I wasn't really paying attention to what can carry Aki was doing I didn't know all these numbers until later on because I was doing it just because I just loved it and I was learning about H. Tim Allen Marketing in Seo and I just I just threw myself into it, but wasn't paying attention to the numbers. I just knew it was doing well. But then when I found out, I was pregnant. I was like okay. Okay, the being you got to the chill, you gotta chill. You can't be can't be doing everything and then in two thousand, fourteen march, two, thousand, fourteen I, gave birth to my son and he's been wonderful ever since he's six now. and then I saw what can curly accu was doing I thought. Ma'am really half assing it. What happens if I put my full ass into this? And once I did again. It took off, so so yeah, okay so. I I know that whenever entrepreneurs are listening to this or site hustlers listening to this. They're like wait a second. She accidentally created a half a million dollar business and wasn't even paying attention. So how does that happen? Did was that like word of mouth or referral? Launches You have specific marketing plans. What did that look like for? You had none of that I had was what people knew me from in the facebook groups, and and because I was also also go. Gee of the niche, their niche of just selling kinky hair did not exist before I. Start before I created my company. So because I saw a gap in the market I'm A. I pioneered that so any other company that you now see selling kinky hair is because of me. And so then because I was first to market with that bat just. Exploded because that's women were looking for. I was solving their problem and on top of that I looked like them. Right so it's like they were like girl. You know, 'cause. One of the things would be like girl I was tired of the whole African in the front, an Indian in the back. If you're a black woman, you know what that means, so what that means is we're all from. Black women are from the African for so we had these tight kinky air, and then we are putting on these silk weaves. I didn't blend with our hair. So I was tired of the whole African in the front and Indian in the back, and that resonated with people, so it just and I didn't do I didn't i. Here's another thing I just literally launched with one product. I locked to one product and I only had three lancs. I only had three lengths. I remember at the time, and someone would buy one I would take that money in going by two. And that's how I built. My business I didn't I. Bootstrap I started from zero. I took no outside capital I didn't have any debt I literally started from the bottom. And was it easy. No, no, it wasn't. Is that possible ABSA freaking move?

So I, WanNa talk a little bit about authenticity because you. I feel like that's the core of who you are is being who you are even whenever it's not. By design, you know it just kind of showed up that way. You are your own client and I think that's one of the greatest ways to be authentic when it comes to creating what you do. So. Let's let's talk a little bit about that. Why do you think that autheniticity and being true to yourself and using your own personality is important for anyone who is building a business or a brand? Because people don't necessarily. I think one of the biggest things people need to keep in mind as people aren't necessarily buying the product. As you can see, it's not like I'm the first person to ever sell Kinky, textured hair extensions and back. There were tons of companies that had it, but what they did. is they buried it underneath the silkier texture, so not the first. To Sell Kinky textured hair extensions. But what people don't realize that people aren't necessarily buying the product. They're buying the person or they're buying the emotions. They're buying lifestyles behind the product. So brand is where you can tell that story so branding will help you. To, help you, stand out in the crowd. It will help people remember and especially when you have a story that resonates with someone one. That's what they're buying into. They could care I. Mean Yeah, you could, you could be selling something. That's more expensive and more has a tools unless this unless that, but what they're buying is the person or the idea or the emotions behind. It so I that's what I realized very quickly is especially in the wedding decor. Businesspeople clouds giving. You made me you made it. It feel so simple. You made me feel so comfortable, and you made this process so easy for me and I realized. It doesn't go learn how to do all the fancy. You know all the fancy. Do Decor all I want but that's not what they care about. They care that I made them feel good about the money that they were spending made their wedding. Feel pretty like I made them feel that way. So that's that's really what you should focus on. I love that you said that you're not the first person to sell kinky natural hair extensions, but that it's been buried, and so you took a product unique in on it, and then you highlighted it, and it's beautiful, and you're owning it and you're helping. Other women own it I'm curious, little bit with some of the activism around. Natural Hair California has banned hair discrimination. It's something that I was so excited to see and when it continue to see, are there any levels of like activism or do you think even products like yours have helped? Create that kind of. Activism you know? Do you think that it's like no? This is who we are and this is just as professional as any other hair well I. Think the problem was that we were letting you know black women in general were we were leading the world? Tell us what was beautiful. And you know Youtube and you know the the beauty of the Internet was us being able to see each other people outside of our own communities, and how they look. How many rock their hair and all that jazz so I think really it. It just helped people just be who they wanted just to be who they are like just to be their authentic selves and truth be told, and it does just women in general, because even society tells us. Women were supposed to look like like I'm pretty sure after this quarantine thing has done. There's going to be a lot of people who were blonde. That aren't blonde anymore, right? But you know with black women where we're especially, you know we. Don't want to say Alison to say hated on because of how we look, and so then this i. feel just the way to just listen world we have to teach. We have to teach the world. This is how we are. If they don't like it. That is their problem. Because this is how my hey, this is how the hair grows out of my head naturally. It's curly it goes. It goes to the heavens because that makes me closer to God in the Sun. Right, as so if that's not something you think is professional, I think you really need to reexamine what your idea professional is. Karen sorry. Goes show that Chad. Presentation matters absent. That is what the Internet gave us. It gave us access to each other and to To all kinds of beauty and bodies and ways of being right, and it allowed us to see ourselves and others, and we can't help it, but need permission you know, and that permission sometimes simply in representation I have so many role models where I'm like. Oh, I didn't know I could do that until I saw them do it. And you're providing tools for that awareness as well which I think is like that's an important part of this, too. It's not only having access to the vision of its having access to the tools to, and that's even what you've done. Okay Vivian, you're you just radiate confidence? We all see. We all feel it over these past couple of days, do you? Some of our listeners are indeed here today WanNa know. Do you ever doubt yourself like? Do you ever have what we call being bossed? Friday? Feelings I mean especially going into industries that you didn't have experienced in. Full frequently. Battle with imposture syndrome Prodi feelings all the time. But then. I. Think to myself you know what. If. I don't do what I'm. Put on this earth to do then nobody will. Nobody will be able to do it either, because people who who look like me or even in the same situation as me so I. Guess I'm a single mom. I've been through depression. I've been I've been through all the things that tried me and I came out gold. So if I don't tell that story, I don't tell people how it's done. Then everyone's just this is GonNa be one hell of a boring world so if I. Let that Imposter Syndrome. Eat Me! Eat Away at me. Then that's not that's not fair. It's not fair to anyone. Right, so I shine so that everyone else can shine to. Raise that's like. Your purpose higher than your emotions absolutely. Thinks the. Catholics. Say she's like yes. I, know what with his quarantine? My bow talks has worn off so you can see my reaction. That's right. My eyebrows moving now. I love it. Up Cackling. Right I'd like to bring this to. The branding things, which you've talked a little bit about and the conference, but not everyone has been a part of the conference like listening to this we have. So many more people who have been who have been here with for the past couple of days, so I wanna to talk about this personal branding piece. And if you have any top tips for anyone who's looking to infuse more of their personality into their brand, how can just any old person in by any old person I mean? Everyone is a snowflake How can anyone shine in their business and use themselves as a tool for growth? Or what I want to remind people is you don't need to be me. So you, you know there's. If you think about people like if you think it will jams, right? There's different Jams Jentzsch. Ruby shied differently than a diamond emeralds than that, so you need to be exactly that so be yourself because the minute you start being someone who you're not. It's going to feel like work. It's going to feel You're going to hate it. People will see right through it. So you really don't have any choice, but to be yourself and so sometimes that means you being quirky, or it means you know. Maybe you do more blogging than you do video or whatever the case may be. You just need to show up as yourself. In whatever platform however way you want to do it and the people who it will resonate with. We'll find you. They will find you, so don't be. Please don't be anybody else you don't. That's not what you were. Put on this earth to be to be someone else I just doing yourself a huge disservice by not being yourself. How windy you feel the most yourself Vivian. Like sometimes it's hard to know like what what is me. What should I be sharing? Where do I draw these lines? You know what you know you know where the lines are to be drawn right? You know you know liking. We women. That's one thing I find with specially with women, and there's a lot of things on finding, but anyhow with women we need to trust. Our guts were always second guessing ourselves. We're always doing all these things, but you just need to trust yourself because you know what you know where that line is. You know what you should be sharing what you shouldn't be sharing. Someone there's comanding that unlike very existential questions, which is basically sums it up I'm like, but but even are we but a bundle of sell. What is time? What is personality? What is money. So sorry asked me asking the question again, so I can play it all night, so the question is windy. You feel most yourself like. How do you know what is authentically? You because I think all of us. WanNa show up as we are and who we are. But we can start to second. Guess Ourselves, so you were saying like we. As women need to listen to our guts like we know, it's in our guts. But how do you tune into that like I know like? Let's just say. I remember doing a couple of years ago, I did. I was I was asked to speak at a hair like a beauty hair brand thing and I didn't like it. 'cause hair was not my passionate kid. I could give to kicks about hair, but put me on. Put me in a forum or an opportunity like this. This is where I shine. So I know. You know you know like you know like you know. I'd so, that's the only. Way Can I can explain. We know you know you know. My in I think even what you're explaining is that you know by trying things, and then like listening to yourself right, so you did the hair thing or you went and spoke at the hair thing and you're like this feels gross like, but you wouldn't have known that if you hadn't tried it. I ache, factly eggs, and that's the key to life to. You gotta try. You gotTA. Try GotTA. Try GotTA. Try 'cause. That's the only way you're gonNA. Find out what you. You like and don't like you can apply that to life like you don't know you like Kale until you try it. You don't know you guys that do this until you try it. You have to go through and try a bunch of different things, and then and you know one of the things I started to realize because I'm I'm forty two, so at forty I was like you know what I'm done trying to live in this Fox like I'm done, it's over. I'm Vivian means lively one so Vivian you just need to go about living your best life because. You know all before I was forty at kept trying to be. Everyone kept trying to put me in this box. You know be a box. Go in the box. You know what I. I discovered that I was a parallelogram. Graham is is a sideways buckler rectangle that has. The Google it okay. I was a parallelogram and I was tired of being put into the box, and so once I turned forty. I just flip the bird to everything and said you know what again if you do not like it, I do not care. That is not my problem. You can go kick rocks with an open Tokyo.

Of course the ripcord have to because I mean we've been waiting for that one mix monsters. Yes things are ugly. So we're GONNA Maybe considered crossing those two since since we have them. Why not why not? It's supposedly very very gassy. Now I told you about it. Got Me really high in studio when he brought it in for the Accu. I don't got to try it quite yet. You Jealous loop a little bit all right. So let's get right into the news just a few things here. The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and explosives issued a memo requiring gun dealers in Michigan to use federal background checks because current policy is allowed to many habitual marijuana users to illegally obtain firearms. Are Dirty. A bitch will marijuana use. Our SAMPHA CAN POT SMOKERS. Dammit figure shot a whisking come down. We'll sell your gun all day long you I. It's terrible. It's terrible I take that back. I mean it's just terrible that they're being so focused on a bitch you'll marijuana users as they put it. Yes exactly food and Drug Administration finally sent Congress Overdue Update on its efforts to formulate policy on enforcement discretion for CD products. Basically what this was you know? They've been getting dinged to come up with some guidelines for marketing. Yeah because people can make these crazy claims and they kind of have been. Yes I mean and if it's not crazy claimed CBD bedsheets in like. I'm surprised they haven't come up with. Cd TAMPONS AND CBD. I think they have some but they the CD pillow. Have you seen that one? You'll see okay. The pillow and I was the reason. I- pauses because of thinking about that. Yeah the CBD. Tampons probably not for a while. I could see that being well. It's they've offered you know they I was. I remember when we first went into top shelf and we were told by one of the guys in there about using I think it was empower on a Tampon and that his girlfriend did it. And so it helped with it helps with internal use of keeping cramps. Os sure will mean empower. That shits the bomb so. I expect their products to work. But I had a lapse or I'm like wait a second. That doesn't sound too crazy. But yes CBD pillow. I mean with snap crazy I mean. Do they surprised? They don't have like CD car seat covers and Shit Cagno. Ashdown way you drive in which I could see this commercial now. Do you have road rage order now? Our new. Cbd Car seat covers in road rage and your road rage now. Only twenty nine ninety five organ activists announced that they've collected more than the required number of raw signatures to put a drug decriminalization treatment. Expansion measure on the November ballot. This is what we've been talking about. We've had a couple of interviews. One was decriminalised and also we talked with a Delic and we referred number numerous times even read the news articles about how organs pushing for decriminalized drugs all of them really but You know Suicide in An and the genes is part of that to the signatures haven't been validated yet. Though so the campaign will keep collecting for more absolutely so basically. They announced Thursday that they had gathered. One hundred twenty. Five thousand signatures was huge I guess invalidated so that means. Probably no one's not. What responded back we know what that means is they gotta validate that the all those signatures are legit. So basically they WANNA make sure that they're not like duplicates or you know if they're forging signatures. I don't know exactly how they do that. Basically your son's nephew. Yeah well. It wasn't there but yeah just make sure that they're legit signatures. So their efforts is to go over. There already. Claimed ten thousand over. But they're going to continue going just to have some sort of safety They've had really good response though and not really surprised. I mean organ. I think is one of the places. It's going to be pioneering theologians. You know we didn't so much with cannabis but it seems like we're really pushing for pretty quick with the with people wanting to do this. Yeah this initiative is backed by the National Organization Drug Policy Action It's GONNA make it. Basically a civil infraction punishable by a maximum. One hundred dollar fine no jail. Time Nice and this is the problem. I just have to mention this. This is only thing that really bugs me about this and we did mention this previous. I think it was indicriminate. But the measures going to take funds not all of them but takes some marijuana tax revenue from schools education and redirect that to substance abuse programs. I get it. It's just education you know that was a great thing that we were getting from the cannabis taxes and we still will get that. I just don't know how much is GONNA be diverted. I hope it's not enough to affect education because right now everything's going well but as you know even with this money they still have short days at school They still don't. It's not like before where was five days of the same schedule. So anyway you could guarantee school. Most of the year is right right right and there wasn't extra days taken offer. It's really strange now. So even though with all this money they still do have some somewhat of a budget. I guess that limits their time at school A study indicated that THC might be present continuously even in non daily smokers at low levels even if the smoking occasions are separated by a week. Yeah I think there's so many variables like if you have a high metabolism that you know might be. You might be able to get away but we all know thirty days. I mean if you're smoking but I don't think that this study probably took an account. Niacin CRANBERRY JUICE. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of water. Yes yes you'd have to do that but yes. This isn't too surprising. The National Institute on Drug Abuse Released a solicitation for grant applications to fund studies investigating quote the effects of cannabis and cannabinoid exposure on the developing brain from pre and post natal development through young adulthood in humans and using animal models. Yes it has tested on animals as we should there is not a lot of. There's not a lot of solid evidence or studies on especially on developing prenatal babies. And we've talked a few times about our situation when we had our two year old so I think that stuff like this needs to be done and I'm glad to see this. I had to mention that as well too.

I oughta of maybe what God has for me in this big adventure. So it's not over. So this is a question on my throat. You have you what have you learned at? That's not in the book from you're still reading that. You're loving that you want to tell us about. Yeah. I think one of the big ones that I've just been reading about is just the rule of pomegranates in the bible. Oh, and how I believe it was one of the fruits. I think it's one of the fruits on the promised land. And how the symbol of royalty starts to appear. And so that's why it's outside the temple. That is why I'm you see it on the hems of the garments of priests. And so when you see pomegranates, and if you eat one, it's amazing they've got those beautiful tops on top of them. It looks like a crown to to look at the imagery of royalty as you're reading through as well. So interesting favorite nerd, I wanna be your favorite nerd. Okay. You're you're my favorite nerd right now for sure I think that you I think that you. We would be surprised at how much you're gonna learn over. 'cause you're going to keep doing this about how much we miss out on when we study the scriptures. When we don't understand this part. It's you which is also true, Margaret, this is a whole nother podcast. But how there's always something new in. God's word for us. Like, we were continual earners of it. Like, we can't ever be like, oh, I know at all, okay. Super nerd so four rabbinic Jews. It's it's been known for. They would always compare studying scripture to sitting under a fig tree throughout the Old Testament. There's all these references to sitting under a fig tree that God would in that piece of a messianic age or not sue season of peace that you would be under a fig tree why? Because figs don't ripen like other fruits, though, ripen just one or two a day, and then maybe wait three days and then one or two on a branch and then another one on each branch. And so you literally have to go out day after day looking up in searching for the fresh food. And I think that's they lean into that. Because that's what God doesn't what you're describing that underneath a victory. We look up, and we are constantly discovering that new succulent provisions that.
