"In this place where they're not seeking to learn and grow and shift things and so i. Think. There's a balance between naming what is happening maiming. Wow. This experience you had is leading to these symptoms you're having now and I think that naming this contest this is what happened. This is what led you to do this this this is what caused you to develop these coping strategies that may not be as healthy right. Now, when we name the contacts, it really helps people to develop compassion for themselves because they ought to be a lot of will what's wrong with me why am I over drinking or why am I doing this or why am I did and if we say listen the In a context that was harmful and painful, and it makes sense that you develop this way of being right. So let's offer yourself some compassion and some love. Let's forgive yourself, and then that becomes the foundation for how do you want to choose to move forward you're not mind by the trauma wig knowledge it in that situation, how do I want to respond to my emotions in a more constructive way? How do I wanNA approach life and so for me that is this balance that I try to. Strike. With a lot of my clients is acknowledging the context and also identifying opportunities for people to be empowered to direct their lives in the way that they want to. So not feeling stuck not saying well, I am traumatized racially in the world is racist. So that's it. I can't do anything but to acknowledge that knowledge, the toll that takes and to think about, what can you do? Yeah that's great. As you said that I thought was really powerful is this tendency for some of us to want to? Create an identity around what the diagnosis and how that manifests in our life. I want to move forward with our conversation around sluts happening with racial trauma for those of us who are non black I'm getting a sentence is feelings of helplessness.

Phillipi Williams who is an amazing poet refill Williams have yet that allow the book a thief in the Interior hoping that embarrassing he's like in the comments. The book in the Interior is is a book I. Loved a lot in a book that really guided me through the writing of my second book of poems like it was i. you know I'm someone who I don't know if he'd do this we right. But when I write at least when I set out to do a project as I moved through it, I kind of just accumulate a stack of books that I that I found myself returning to you know like a stack of books that it's like all right well, and I know exactly where this poem is and this one in this home informing this part of my work. In different interior is one of those books. But also this leads me we have we have like homeys and combine we have like poet home and common who you know Enmesh Ville who would talk to me about your your working your workers because I knew us musicians various and side of them all over the place that you worked with an which I am I'll be.

Southern. Pumpkin. Makreda partner Mason Tech men, and we just like hung out for a few days and it was like completely cold like. It was like interesting gang a feel for each other because. We had no context for one another it's like I'm not from the Midwest is like you eight? No, no from sows like. How we make the shit work it but I love that was pure relationship I was like I don't know you. You don't know me but I liked the toys you have your studio see the Cold Air let's make some shit and I remember like he asked me when we first started in. Pre production together like a year. Before we cut anything he was like what your influences like what you listening to what you want this product is. Can I was like I think it'd be cold this record sound like Billie holiday got lost in a radio. And he was like. Okay, we can do that. That's like who can work together I. absolutely adore him like he's kind of become like my big brother our last day working together at law upon his studio. He he took me aside who's like, I just want you to know like. You have people who have community here like. For me that that mental lot that. It's hard to find community in national genuine Zeppelin select cutthroat you know like. I don't know he's just good people and I. Love that Man I'll never leave him alone. I mean the national means so much to me because. I'm in a high. Wind. In like they've they've kind of like propelled I. Think me and a lot of my friends here through so many different seasons of our lives you know because they've been around for so many different seasons realizes. So there's like national songs every era of of you know there's a national song for the era, the diner I'd love clothes and there's a national song for the era of the third breakup of the third summer you know that kind of bullshit. Map Bullshit but like you know what I mean. and. So when that record when silences dropped I was so thrilled I was so excited because it was kind of like a merging of the word of these worlds I was interested in like like the blues artist I heard your other music. And it was like, okay this is a call back to the blues that I loved updated. You know what? I mean. It's like the blues I grew up. Loving but it's just like on a modern sonic landscape and then when I silence has dropped, it felt so I don't know resonated in such a big way and Barack Obama like it. while. I. was while I was in the woods and South Carolina have gone back home and I got a text from my publicist was just like off. Okay. But I. Love You. You Know I. Love that you. You know for you like the National League having artists I can talk to you in that intimate level like shit like this is my jam like when my diner. Went kaput look. That's some real shit like that's some true heartfelt shit and I. And I saw like being on tour them the way that either Mac was able to connect with the audience. So like speak to people. I thought that was brilliant. I thought it was poetic. Scared. Him a little bit by I. Married Yeah. Louis. Scared. That's that's unshakable I. Don't think he knew. Me You know I'm not one of these little white girls. As. Young. Yeah That's true. Matte all that running around the crowd or whatnot I feel like I thought he would be unshakable now you you. Look at you buddy. But that's had to go kids. I gotta go in front crowds like seeing these people that don't like they don't know black women like me I feel every night I have to constantly introduce myself like Greg. I'm impressed the people even say my name right so it's like I constantly in this Americana, world I have to like this is what I do this don't do like 'cause I'm the I mean that People Matt before and I've done that intentionally cause A. If you're black singer. Or musician. It's very niche category because your audience is going to be white you have people in your team that went to kind of. Prepare yourself as product white consumption, and usually that means like harketting back to some sort of late throwback style or something already been done. It's safe safe for what people consider. In, from the moment, look came out up game I was like fuck that like that's the world that I had to escape as a kid in in the church like I'm not going back. They're like I'm fucking like almost character on but flannery O'Connor novel. So either during deal with me or you don't. But I'm not hiding who I am. So yeah, it's like sometimes you get people look white people view. But you know at this point, my cramps just like to stick around low-pay, they'll start to understand don't worry. I got you. Yeah. I mean I. Think it's someone who who has seen you live it has been in the audience rate in his kind of you know I think a thing I was talking about how my brain goes to to music journals mode. It really does that it live shows where what's happening on the stages sometimes secondary to my wanting to see the reactions of the people in the ecosystem. Yes and Where this I think happens most effectively is when you are like witnessing very skilled, very unique opening act that perhaps is a little outside of the band that people like the majority people maybe showed up see I remember seeing Mike Courtney Barnett. Shit maybe for the national, honestly maybe for the national. You know in the vibe was you know it was one of those things where like? Oh. This is interesting. I remember I I saw you play in a in a space. I don't know where I think you were maybe like the act that night I think challenges people and I think you're presents, challenges, people, and I don't mean that Mike in a bad way I mean that in an excellent way like I mean I think. The spaces you're in require people to be be challenged by your presence or or at least like I think black artists, the challenge is going to be present whether we wanted to or not, and so in some ways like the work that we're doing is is Trying to ask people to reckon with why they feel like they met with that challenge you know..

"Sabbath everything secular got shut down know we weren't supposed to turn on lights and we would open Sabbath together in our living room seeing these old like flat Christian songs, humble mean and I might Jacob's ladder and as a child I didn't believe in Jesus I didn't believe in God given to Christian School I. Knew It was like I understood what music did I understood that coming together look I understood that kind of pausing everything external focusing on this message and how you closer to your people. So that's always been what like Brings Lina Gospel Music it's like I get to sheds about what Jesus does with your body when you die. You die but I understand that what that does to you while you're on this. Physical plane and it's I think that's sacred I think that's The. Beautiful. If. That's in some ways. It's comforting because I. You know again I just don't have much of a relationship with. A. Muslim Muslim. But also a very musical household and I grew up with people who had like my parents had converted in the seventy s right before that they're Christian. So there is like a relationship with Gospel Music or at least the relation artists who Like Aretha Franklin is essentially a gospel artists. There's no way. Did you see a major? You see the amazing grace? Documentary Oh, you should watch it. It's IT'S BEAUTIFUL I've seen up by four times in theaters and cried each time. It's on some streaming service now. But I feel like watching at home but I duNno. Would be weird for me anyway but a redesigned Gessler I some somebody's like you know the half of the motown artists were Gospel artists. You. Can. RAFFLE. Yeah or at least like anyone who was unafraid to use the tools who came up with the rank who came up singing in the church or Marvin Gaye came up singing in the church unafraid to use those tools to make the music that wasn't being made in the church that feels to me like those are gospel artists in some way. But I mean, obviously, you know I think the musician is more than the kind of like the tools they used to make their music. But I do think that there's some stuff with like especially gave Franklin and so on where it's like, you can hear it. It's inseparable from what they were doing. Absolutely it's interesting. That the reason looks. So you see a wreath as a Gospel Singer of icy blue singer but I also see them as like two sides of the same coin. A to be able to invoke the board back Tarpley, you also have to be able to vote the devil. Satellite these seniors at. Setback and forth met lines like they. Feel that they were going too far. It's the darkness they go toward redemption but I think you're still harketting the spirit of the other worldly whether it's Gospel and blues whether you're calling on God or tablets you're still not dealing with like our physical. Existence and that's powerful. It's really great to think about.

"To be in the middle to ever be centered. Image traumatic in difficult but it also gives you this really cool perspective of being able to examine everything in everybody. So when I'm writing I kind of pictured this roving. You know reading Sylvia Plath. She talks about being this perspective slick. Roving over everything so terrified, but I think there's a power data lake when you're looking at the power structure, the the normative teradyne saying I'm watching you I'm creating from you you know what I mean. So to me, that's the balloons like that ability to observe and hold certain truths that you can only by virtue of being like the absolute outsider thing that really inspires me lies like I look back to these women light my rainy invest spent betrays spy the these were women at one chain away from slavery and One generation and the first thing that they did with their freedom. Firstly, over their bodies was there, I'm going to start telling some truths about shit that I see. And so I did that spirit of the Blues the scholarship of the Blues is really a philosophy of observation of upholding many difficult troops at once, and that's kind of how I I approached my poetry. That's how I slice into my art. Your feels I wish more people talked about the blues as reporting or as an act of of reportage. Um. Because it like it's an observational for him I think more so than because of the people that came from right and. Like. You know a thing I came up hearing a lot is that blues is not a genre or blues is not a sound it's an affliction like you're afflicted with the blues and then you crawl yourself towards the making of of. That, which the blues is asking you to make you I mean I grew up watching artists who seem to be. Having a good time who seemed like pleasure for you the other day you said that picture of you when you like fucked up your thumb on stage and you're like bleeding everywhere and I was like, yeah, that's like a perfect but you weren't. I. I mean sure you're paying to some degree, but you were still like like joyful. I remember look at that picture like that's me feels like the blues to right where the pain is weren't outside for the audience to look adding say, wow, that looks painful. But the person who's actually delivering the language is experiencing something perhaps other worldly that is joyful. Yes you know it's funny like when it happened I don't remember that moment like if that person had captured on stage I would not be able to tell you about it in detail like I don't remember. New Zealander think about my physical pain the only thing that I remember it in that moment I was like bleeding was feeling completely controlled. Myself was feeling completely in control of my. Music, my message, it was funny because that was the first time that actually play with my drummer naps. We just hired amd before Africa pumped so. I guess I was like very in tuned with him. I was making sure to send him messages with my body about the rhythm like to to make sure us lockton with me. So I think just being locked in with him. Being that. Read it in the rhythm of the music. It kind of lifted me somewhere else normally like I'm chicken shit like did that idea they life? Diet. So. That's interesting boats like the blues performers especially the Women Look I'm very honed in. Now I love the dudes but the women were coming at it. They were cut from a different way they very much knew how to. Display their pain and show it but it was done in a communal sense. You know you have. Like Mon- Bessie conveyancing these blue songs. It was actually like a communal church experience like, Hey, ladies address audience that hey ladies like you man that's like doing Xyz you here's what you do. So it wasn't so much like Oh my God me and my pay it was more like look this bullshit we have to go through and the fact that I'm going to with you it it makes it not hurt so much but that also doesn't negate the pain doesn't dismiss it just makes it. All. Right Yeah I. Love that because you do hear that like the Blues as an instructor for form particularly with women sang it. which is still here I mean I think that thread runs throughout like modern rb some not to like do a play on like as I think about like hit 'em up style or Blu Cantrell. Rundown. means. It runs straight through it where it's just like that's long like Yo here's how you steal this. No give my fucking stop right. and. It's very much embedded in that blue's scholarship even where it's just like. That's instructive. I try and stop people like beyond. Say Some Blues Artists like listen to like me myself annihilate. She's saying, I'm a ladies here. Me Help me sing out. It's like black women had to do that. We come to each other, but we talked to hold space for each other 'cause early there wasn't like NAM fuck that's GonNa hold that space for us. Only place we go where we don't feel it. We're being like gasoline was like two other black women. So it's like you know what I'm going through or you have it you know what I I went to a yeah. Yeah. I love this. This is great. I've been thinking about, Mavis staples all day about how like how Gospel as I understand it intersected with the blues and how and I know she's not southern or at least she's like well, somebody she is I. Mean I know that I don't know by the great migration I imagine may the staples is at least somewhat southern? You know or at least like steeping something Southern Gospel is a music and I wasn't raised Christian, and so like my relationship with Gospels, all sound base where it was like I liked the sound of acquire like what happens when a number of voices come together to create one voices. So I'm going to gravitate towards gasol because that's happening there. Only understated as joyful music that had roots in people who had experience such horror. Yes they had to imagine. They had to imagine like another world beyond the one that they were living in and I I know the blues is was born out of some of those similar horse but it feels like Gospel is just kind of like the other side of that coin. If you have like any like Gospel training, but it feels like some of your songs I still feel that like that's that spirit of the intersection of Gospel and Blues. Yes absolutely. It's like I. Feel it growing up in the south like you? Just being like in the air like coming up. On that ground in that land like you understand what that means. So you know full disclosure I was raised in the church. So I was actually raised in the an very white seventh day adventist church. So we were as removed you could be from that Gospel tradition I had what the dusty asked hands like. Oh God but my mother she grew up she grew up avenues says well, but she And so we have like it's black hems and we recognize the Jewish Sabbath. So from sundown Friday night to sundown Saturday night, that was our.
Highlights from the First-Ever AJC Virtual Global Forum
"This week thousands of global Jewish advocates were supposed to have been in Berlin for the AJC Global Forum. Unfortunately, the pandemic had other plans, but we weren't just going to cancel our critical conference, so we took the global forum virtual all week. Thousands of people from around the world have been tuning in on AJC DOT ORG to watch high level addresses, intimate conversations and fierce debates over the future of Israel, America in Europe over the course of. Of this episode, we're going to bring you. Parts of those conversations Dr Anwar. Gosh is the United Arab Emirates Minister of State for Foreign Affairs this week. He joined the J. C. Virtual. Global Forum for conversation with his friend and our chief policy officer Jason Isaacson in doing so he became the highest level official from an Arab country without relations with Israel to publicly address an American Jewish audience. Let's listen in to some of that conversation now. I want to begin by thanking the distinguish minister, not only for taking the time to share his insights with AJC and our many thousands of guests on this virtual platform, but for the multiple times that he and his colleagues in the leadership of the UAE have met with AJC over the twenty plus years that we have been regularly traveling to his country in pursuit of regional peace and cooperation and understanding or meeting with government officials when they have visited the united. States Dr Guard Gosh. It's very good to see you again. Thank you, Jason. Thank you I'd like. Like to begin by thanking you for boosting need today and I that this would be opportunity for a frank and constructive discussion, which is much needed I want closer to take the opportunity to thank ag see for what has been quite remarkable bridge to the ridge. There has been an octave work that was done to numerous visits to all the countries of ragent, all the countries of the Gulf and I think this sort of visiting and understanding the food of Fiji sees. Look over this city has been quite busted sounded, so thank you very much for that. Thank you very much. His remarks Dr Garg. The has a proud tradition of philanthropy including major charitable dishes here in the United States. How has your country contributed to the global fight against Akron bars pandemic, and what is your assessment of international cooperation in this fight generally closer to home, please talk about public health cooperation across the Middle East. How successful has it been? How can it be improved going forward? What specific role has the UAE played and I note by the way that the has twice in recent weeks, Asakusa and medical aid to the Palestinians by Israel feel free to discuss that as As well. I would actually agree with lock analysts who have said that our national responses have been more important than what I recall regional responses or googlers, every country, really as sort of look into its own and thermal situation, and this raises a lot of issues rarely about global cooperation, regional cooperation on issues such as the CAL now. If you look really adept policy, it's interesting, because in my opinion, we have come with a very I would say organized which nationally which is allowed us to actually and pry and help others and Binat relations originally and. We I think done something very successfully. Separate. Elliptical from the humanity so here for example we have no relationship with is ran, but at the same time we have recognized that this isn't Adia that we need to cooperate together because it is one that edges human beings finally from the religious affiliations at. Let's look at the long term effects of the pandemic on. The long lockdown of the widespread in deep economic disruptions, the effect that they will have on regional stability and security. Not every country in the region has the kind of resources that the UAE. Does you throw in the recent plunge in oil prices on the crisis across the region really is amplified. Are you forecasting a regional power relationship restructuring a potential conflict between states, says spike and out-migration, perhaps from the Gulf states. Where do you see a softer landing after the pandemic? I would say that things will change and things will stay the scene. To suppose that fundamental issues that we have not been able to tackle for forty and fifty and sixty s will suddenly change overnight I think is expecting too much unfortunately, but at the same time I think that we need to try and work at the edges of. So clearly I think we need to avoid rhetoric that leads plus colletion. We need to avoid confrontation because everybody will be affected the dubs. Demographics guns. Economy and so on so
20 Minutes With Aly Orady The Founder Of Tonal
"Everyone it's Martin from twenty minutes fitness. Today we're having actually a remote interview with Adia. Righty from TONAL AT A. We have been talking before last year in May but for the listeners have not had the chance. Listened to that podcast. We're GONNA make sure that episode awesome to our show notes. Why don't you just say a few words about who you are? And what total is Yeah Martin. Thanks for having me back on the show. I'm the founder and CEO of Ohio and tunnel is a connected streaming system for the home so it's a digital strength training machine that's versatile enough to support Every single movement that you would do on any machine and our weight room and comes with Multi Week Programming and Onscreen coaching guides. Our guys are members through their workouts. Every every step of the way it's Super Compact. It's compact enough to monster walls. It's compact enough to sit in a one bedroom apartment or or a home and And it super smart and intelligent. Ai In it that personalizes the workouts to user and and guides people through the work that so what would like typically experienced. Like if. I'm a user an ice pack. You know may gun through on morning and do my I work out. How would that apply so So the first thing is when you walk up to a tunnel you actually just looks like a TV mounted on wall but but vertically I end the arms tucked away so when you're not using it it's it's stowed looks really clean and sleek is when you walk up to it the first thing you do on still the arm so these arms often and they become adjustable seen all sorts of different exercises. I know there's a twenty four inch screen When you first create your account you know you do everything you do with a personal trainer. You'd Salsa Basic Steiger Age or your goals and then we take you through a quick strength test ought to find out how strong you are And that becomes the baseline that we use from that point that point forward and then you know what you'll do is you'll you'll select the program that you want to do and you know you have the option of doing a single day workout With one of our coaches so you you might take a coach and pick a twenty minute workout or for workout. Or you'll enroll in a multi week program. This is what most people actually do we were. We were grams oriented around specific goal. So we have programs for people who want to lose weight people who want to build muscle people who want to get better at specific sport. Like an example. We will retraining program for somebody's training for a five K. Five Ron. You don't actually become a better runner by running more you do it. You can read strength training and then once you step into the workout. We'll take you for warmup routine and then as we take you for every single strength. Training exercise tonal will automatically choose. How Much Weight? You should lift scored exercise. Assess how you're doing and then Decide whether it's time for you to lift more weight or less weight so so in essence. The is adopting every workout to you. In terms of the way the pacing to work. That's actually will speed up and slow down depending on on how you're doing. I even give you real time feedback right emotion elements of your arm. So it's it's pretty cool and Since we last talked. And that's I'm tonal had just launched a few months before that and what has happened since then what has changed. I think a lot of a lot of things have changed. I think when when we first started a lot of people would look at this thing and not sure what it was and now now we're in a position where where people look at this and they will have a tonal. Just tell us that. It's the most incredible piece of equipment if they've ever used and I think the the analogy I can use. It's like it's like one test Reduction of electric cars. I think when I was a kid when you looked electric cars they were always. They're always like the all environmentally friendly alternative to gasoline cars. But you're serious about cars. You had to go gasoline. And now Tesla has proven that an electric car cannot perform a gasoline card every single dimension. And that's exactly. What tonal is tonal? Doesn't rely on big metal place in gravity. We actually generate or she using electricity And electromagnetics and just repel cars or trains or in Donald Generate enough force. The pick you up off the ground or give you a really really serious workout and I think before we. We launched people who would see. The product would be impressed by now that it's people's homes and more and more people hearing. We're starting to get this this reputation of being a superior way to strength train. The resistance is more pure the spotter which automatically adjusts the way. If you're struggling you push yourself harder. Va I which selects the wage for you. Opt To push yourself harder. The guidance is is really is really great. Because you're getting a crush routine every day And so I think that that reputation is starting to to proceed us community has really grown become very vibrant. And I think that's all great very exciting. And you mentioned that initially customers didn't quite know what to make for Assad and do you think that was more phone Education thing that you had to explain the product more and you had to put up that reputation like you mentioned like something that you had to change around the product experience fall for your users. It was all about. It was all about education and about letting people experienced thing that was new and different than what they'd seen before you know when you walk into a gym and you look at our traditional cable crossover weight machine or you look at Iraq dumbbells. I think we all know what those things do. I think with tonal people. Look at it and you know it's really small. It's leak and and it's easy to underestimate because pretty until that same person. Twenty minutes later is sitting on a puddle on the ground puddle of sweat on the ground you know out of breath the thing we hear most often from people as it exceeded my expectations. This is way harder than I ever expected him. The resistance is more pure. It's smooth and in in the beginning. You know it it. You know people look at this thing. They don't is under skeptical? And then after you know after. The community began digging gave momentum. I think we started to see See The tide turn.

"No one can pray for that because you're not prepared unless you do it so I just think those things got easier then once you have a system and you have a routine but it takes a couple of years to get that. I am much better now than I was three years ago. I'm different but it takes time and no one could have taught me that or prepared me for that. Are you know what drew? Here's something funny that add to that so there's little things like this which you don't know and it's not stuff you would ask so like my first year. We didn't use the souls. We dislike stood up in a thirty second time out. And there's like fifteen twenty people standing around you. You can't tell WHO's in the game. One starters like getting lauder and it's like it's hard in the thirty second goes by surprise you try to coach your team in trying to think of who the game. What position will I realize? The one thing for me made easier the stools make it easier because I have the one in one spot. The two three four five and you know exactly. Who's in the game at that time? And they're all sitting right in front of you in order. That was one thing that made my life. I didn't realize that my first year until like I asked someone and I was like. That's a great idea. I thought that he stole sit there and be away but it made my life easier because of the time out was less chaotic. That's a yeah that's amazing. Just the little stuff like that that. That is incredible. We we talked to Charlie Turner Thorne couple of weeks ago and she just mentioned how helpful it is to have especially when you're a travel partner situation in a league to have a travel partner that's good and for so many years you know. Coach Thorn was saying You know the Arizona just hasn't been very good. And now you guys are you know and they would have You Know Stanford Roll through. And you you know. Tara could could restor players for the Arizona game and then you know she's able to Go at Charlie's team with with the full attack because she rested or players on on Friday or whatever the case may be. What is it like to have a Charlie's program in your backyard both to As a rival and at the same time in that kind of way to get some energy off of as well well I. I thought everything I've known Charlie for a long time. She was actually just starting her career at Arizona State. When I was a player have always had so much respect for her and I even asked her questions when she took her time off. I was broadcasting for the storm. So we would always talk She's done a tremendous issue and it is very true. You want your partner school to be good because of those reasons and like we're both really good defensive teams where we play hard. I think blue collar type teams so right now for For my program in for her for program. It's not easy either night so it helps both of us be better You know I know. When people comes a desert they bring their game. They've had to be tough. 'cause it's going to be a battle both nights and I remember. She told me she wanted us to be good when I first got here And I think it's something that both of us appreciate because bull of we're GonNa make the nights ours And you know. I think it should be Harvard because the desert because I can tell you from someone on the other side. It's really hard the Oregon if the weather's bad and play there so it's like we're coming from the desert so when you go to order that you're gonNA play in front of a minimum about twelve thousand and it's a battle so. I like to think that Amazon is like that. You know you go to Amazon. You got to prepare for both teams. He better bring your game do you tell your team's hey make sure you soak this in as far as we're GONNA play in big games like this several more whether it be in Vegas or whether it be in the NC Double A. Tournament. Soak this in and and take in this environment and make sure that you will accept this so you can play through it on an even bigger stage down the line now. We don't really talk about that. 'cause it's just kind of expectation. They said no that so. We don't talk about it because now we're used to play. We like six seven thousand fans a game so I think we're kind of used to that. And then the W. T. gave us like fifteen thousand people so it's not something I really talk about if something that I know. They're pumped to do that is great stuff. That is great stuff coach. We wish you the very best of luck the rest of this season. I know this is the rough part of the scheduled coming up here. This This this road trip but I know you guys are going to give them hack and It's it's GonNa be really fun to watch those.

"You know wanted to leave Austin came here then after that Dominique. Tt So I built it with players. That believed in what I was selling. So they believe my vision. I had no proof because we had done many years so they listen to what I said and the Vision I had the passion I had for it and they decide to come to war with me. And that's what I love and that's why it's so special because no one knew this would be a thought it could be but they didn't know so there's always a special place in my heart for all those kids the believe them something when. I wasn't sure how long it's GonNa take. Do they believe that vision with me? And now it's happening so it's just meaningful for me and it's more meaningful to don't care to anybody says it is more meaningful at your water because this is where the foundation started for me and this is where all my success started and so it just needs a lot absolutely and I was seeing some tweets before the game against Arizona State. I think it was Cindy Brunson was outside the arena and she was taking pictures of just people in line and they could not wait to get in and see that matchup. Just I know you guys want it and that you know you won both this year in the regular season against Arizona State and I know that means a lot to but as far as generating that type of buzz in a city. That absolutely loves basketball. What what did that mean? And what has that meant to see people so pumped up about Arizona? Women's basketball it means a lot for me personally because one of the goals I had when I got this job was. I knew I couldn't change that. We weren't good. I knew contains history. And we've been bad for a long time like bottom of the packs golfer decade. I knew those things I can't control because I'm new and and it was starting all over but the things that I could control. Were easy for me because it's a strength though I knew I could. I can control how much I'm out in the community. I can control how good we are in the community. I can control our kids the passionate about something else besides basketball and like finding a way to serve those things. I can control so I remember I said even when I first guy I looked back at what am I pay per is of what my bullet point goals were and one of them was all Thursday the community. That's something I can control and so I was on the mission from being asked okay. We're going to be out there in the community. They're gonNA love us. They're going to want to support us. We're GONNA develop relationships and that was my missing from day one. Not because I thought that we'd have ten thousand fans but I was GONNA. I was sure that I was going to control that. This city is going to love. Were doing because they're great. Kids that want to do great things for this place and it just kind of it. That's how it started so we're out there. We were in the community developing relationships. So people wanted to support us and so for me people ask. Oh you're tweeting and your Yeah you know it's fun for me. It takes five minutes a day. I'm tweet now. Hey come to the game. We want ten thousand and they've always responded every time I've called so for me. I love that. I love that I have that that A tide of this community and it's meaningful because I'm gonNA tell you not. Too many venues in the country can draw ten thousand people for regular season game absolutely. That's it's just incredible in. Its it's happening in the pack. Twelve right now in in a couple of different spots in in your one of them and it's so it's so exciting to see you know one of the things that I wanted to get into is tweeting yesterday about about Richard. Richard Jefferson stopping by. And of course jet Terry played there and you know I remember visiting a couple years ago. You know in that practice facility seeing all those names up on the wall including yours of course but You know there are just so many basketball legends there. How do you try to use that in recruiting? Does that help things as you're going after some of these McDonald's all Americans in and showing them some of the history on both sides women and men at Arizona. I think just the the successful men's program has just helped really Arizona on a map as far as branding and so you know a lot about little since Miller and just the the the prominence of men's basketball here I think For me I just have a lot of friendships from thirteen years playing professional so from like some of the best NBA guys. I've known them for many years. So me and Richard. Jefferson went to college together. We're friends being Jason. Terry were all four years together. So these are like my personal friends since we were eighteen. Miles Simon all those guys so I always had a good relationship with them so they became these stars. I remember when they weren't so so for me. I don't really use that for recruiting. Because I've played with some of the best players in the world like I played the Subaru. Katie Smith Lauren Jackson. So I think we just those who dislike the connections that we have and I know for our players are fortunate because at least five seven. Wnba coaches of came by here and a lot of them have gained by because their fringe of the mayor visiting me but we just have when your former player you just have connections. I have connections to pretty much every WNBA. Not because just. Because I'm older now. A lot of them are my teammates. Sandy Bryan Delo head coach for Phoenix. He was my teammate Seattle Storm. You know like Brian Adler was my coach with the Minnesota Lynx. Ten Years Ago. Dan Uses my coach at the Cleveland Rockers. He's now the head coach of the Seattle Storm. So it's just all these connections through basketball's a small community so we all help each other. In like Kelsey Palm Coast Kelsey Plum. She came and talked to players up in Washington. So I try to provide those type of role models for them either. Jason Blair he comes the judge. Joseph Blair comes to visit. I haven't talked to our post players so I can provide that because of the friendships I have. And that's on the benefits of being a former player. We can give those things and I have pleasure doing that for my players. That's outstanding. So if you don't necessarily try to strong arm and use that to your advantage as far as recruiting goes you were talking about selling your vision so tell us how you sell that vision. What is that vision? And how do you get these kids to go to war with you as you said I feel like I don't really have to sell it like I just have to talk about so fell would probably wasn't the right word but I just talk about what I see this program like the potential fame this program and where I expect to be in so many years and all those things have happened even sooner than I said so when I talk about recruiting initially when we were bad I was like my vision to build this program. How is going to do it? That type of kids. I was GONNA do it with the way we were. GonNa do it. What we're going to do outside of basketball the things that I do to prepare my players for the next forty years of their lives and I think I'm one of the best that's atmos- program. I knew that that's something I can control. I said okay. Am I gonNA outputs Gino and Tara my first or no? I'm not but I know we're going to be the best that Excellency. And we are one of the best that that As far as mentoring like etiquette class in preparation for a young woman. I know I'm great at that so I I think that that's something I really value. And that's something I did even as a pro and And that's just something we do here so I think for families and kids. They see that the full package of the player develops here. And that's one thing that I owe to women's basketball basketball has given me tremendous opportunity has changed me as a woman into WHO. I am today so I owe that to this game. And that's how. I grow the game because the reality is most women are GonNa play pro but I can have them ready with the resume. I can have the ready for an interview speaking correctly for the cameras. Those are things that I can help them with for their life. Not just for basketball. So we do that. That's outstanding. That reminds me a lot of what To make a catching stocks about in preparing her players. You know even pro players at Indiana for for the next level of their life the next version of their life. Whatever that that would be. That's really cool. I am for many years and so I see the parallel there for sure but it wasn't always that maybe you thought you're making your impact in the women's game a as a head coach you know what was the pivotal moment. Because I know you'd be successful in whatever you're doing whether it'd be broadcasting or I don't know I don't know what it would be. But what was the pivotal moment? What flipped it for you? And what made you see this vision of you as head coach someday? Well so it's funny. I never had aspirations via coats like I. I played for a long time and by my playing career at like thirty. Three years old I didn't have aspirations coach. I remember back when I was twenty five. I was like in my probably fifth year. Playing Pro Joan offered me the job. I was in Israel playing. I remember two years in a row. She offered me a job. You're at Arizona and I've ignored. Thanks like playing better make more money. It's way more fun So I declined coaching and I was at the end of my playing career and I was thinking about. What are the things I love? I played long enough to where I didn't have to like go stress out a job right away. Smart with my money I I was okay to take my time so I moved back to Washington because that was like my home base. I had a nonprofit foundation. I was doing TV on the side. And I like TV. But it didn't love it. I found myself staring when I was doing like PAC ten games at the time or they were packed football but it was before the network. I found myself asking about coaching for my friends over coaching. And I was like Whoa. I love a couple of things. I love basketball. I love speaking. I love mentoring. I felt like the broadcasting. I wasn't getting that. Just go to a game call at like leave. I didn't feel like I had the connection and so I kind of started thinking about coaching them. I DIDN'T WANNA leave Washington because I had just left out suitcase for thirteen years. I wanted to base so Macguffin got the job at Washington and so- McGaw called me so when an interview. I'm just GonNa see if I like coaching. I only wanted to coach. They didn't apply for the job. They didn't go for any other jobs so met with him really liked him. Heard great things about him. I want to try it. And if I didn't like it I was gonNA walk away and just go into broadcasting network was coming out like the next year and so I started. I didn't even ask my salary and stuff when I first got the job. I didn't even know it's like the dog I that wasn't a concern of mine. I wanted to try it and see if I loved it because I'm a type one eleven. I'm not going to do it for any amount of money so I tried it and I love the. It was hard but it was It was fulfilling for me and so I stuck with united site. This is like where I'm supposed to be. This is how I'm supposed to be the Arizona came open. They kind of recruited me to come. I didn't know if I wanted to take it because I had a seven month baby in the night inside of all. You're never ready. Go for it and I. Everybody told me I lynn done a whole bunch of people that I really respect in the business. They told me not to take the Arizona was bad. Paid the bad job. Tough to win here tough to recruit and I said I'm going to take a job. I'm going to do my best and I'M GONNA. I'm GonNa build something there and I took it and here. We are got US incredible. Just a great story. What about coaching came naturally to you right off the bat? And what did you have to work at? The relationships came naturally to me. The recruiting was Nathlie. Because I'm a people person and I like recruiting it. It's easy for me The mentoring was natural and it was a I had done it in the pros for many years it was up. They might take pride in so those things are easy. Relationships are easy. The first adjustments for me. That were hard was you. It changes you as a head. Coach Service assistant coach like I had on my couch. Every single day in my office was full. Player is the whole day every day on your head. Coach comes to your office really unless you call them in here like one or two player but like no one really comes to your office. No one like waits in line to get in your car. Those things were adjustment for me because I was Kinda like. Hey I'm cool. You know like that was weird because when you're dictating playing time people don't like you so it's a little different of so. That was an adjustment. I think the hardest things for me was. You're never prepared to be a head coach till your head coach so your first year. It's like so much stuff like you rebuilding a program your disciplining because usually if you take over the job. It's not a good situation so there's a lot of discipline things you're trying to establish a culture you're learning what you do well as a head coach and what your identity is and hege coach your team so it's just a lot your first year and.

"A long. Ncwa tournament drought. So it's time to talk to a barnes. I love what you guys do. My pleasure to be on there. Oh my gosh well thanks so much for the compliment and We love what you guys have going on this year by the way. So the The feeling is mutual. There's no doubt about that and You guys are on a roll right now. I wanted to get your reaction to the top. Sixteen teams are seeds at this point in the season being released right now. You guys were at number thirteen here in that fourth tier that That four seeds here. How do you feel about that? Is it about right? Are you hoping for more or were you hoping for more? Would you think about that Where we're at and what we're doing. I think it's realistic. I think that it's not something that just be complacent about just because there's so much more basketball and unfortunately the season ending today if it was not a good situation to be in. But it's not so we try to narrow our focus and fake one game at a time and Just take your business because our ultimate goal is to go the tournament so we know we're setting ourselves up in a situation successful but we got to win some more game. You're in a good position right now. Of course to go to the tournament but anytime at team is coming off several years where they have not been at the NC Double A. Tournament and it's It's been a while of course and you guys had the great w an. It success last year. Is there just that that edge about the team that they feel like they've got something to prove each and every night? I think that you know it's different like chasing and being chased You know this is uncharted territory for a lot of our players And just because our program has been down like you said for so long but I think now were just after the momentum. We have last year from winning an Iky kind of spearheaded this season so we walked into the season with the bar raised with expectations higher. And Feeling. Really good about what we're doing so I think what solidified this year start was the win at Texas? There was a great. It was a big win for us. Played pretty well and then we just continue to get better than Asu and the UCLA wins. We've had some signature win. They think of just gave us a lot of confidence. And you know for US playing in the number one conference in the country You know we get challenge every single night everything that we play so You know we're we`re. We have good preparation. That will help us later on in the tournament. No doubt about that. I mean you just can't take a night off. How do you approach this weekend's to step at Oregon at Oregon state I I mean this is really tough stuff when you're playing to top five teams Back to back like this. Is it tough Eh? To not put too much pressure on your team especially considering that they got you guys at home feel like we got a split on the road. We gotta get this done. Or how do you approach this weekend? We take one game at a time. I think that for I was telling Arkin. There's no pressure we're not supposed to go to Oregon and and beat them. I mean they. They're very they're undefeated at home. They played really well at home. So we have no pressure we can just go in there and play so. Our focus is organ trying to find a way to beat Oregon Mo. We know it's going to be hard but I think that we feel like on any given night. We can beat anybody so we just have to come out there and his thoughts and and play defense. We know we're capable of playing. We thought the home game against Oregon. We didn't play well and so we know we can play better and we also recognize that. They're playing better. But I think for us when you can take care of home when you gave the home when all the Games are supposed to and if you can go on the road you're sitting in a really good situation. So there's no pressure for us going organs seen so much about trying to guard. Oregon's pick and roll game when you've got When you got Sabrina there. And you've got roofing and you know they're going I. It just seems so impossible to guard right there and then then shooters that Sabrina can kick to and things like that going into that match up. What are the one or two key things when you're trying to guard the pick and roll their between the between the wings and try to limit those those opportunities options for you know skew? What are the things that that you key on? Well we have to really good office dumping all defense of Bhai changing things. I don't think you can play one particular way the whole game. They're just too good And you just have to make them work. We know we're not going to shut down there picking role we know. They're getting the different ways. Hand off you know. Quick screens step up screens all a lot of defending so we have to be on point. If we don't defend that well we won't win the game. I think the other thing for us is defending the post better in the past. We have not. Ruthie has killed US pretty much every game in the best. So we've gotta find a way to address ruthie And make her work knows. We're not gonNA down the All American but we have to make our work for every shot. I felt like the first game. We played them. Cicadas up and unders and just really you know easy south that we weren't disciplined in our defense. So we have to better at that. And then you know and transition we've gotta be able to find suitors and no personnel in transition. It was a big week for airy when you look at some of the honors that she was able to get on Monday whether it be a national player of the week. Honor or things are starting to get pared down as far as some of these top awards like the wooden award and things like that and of course as she still on the list at this time of the year. What have you seen in her this year? Obviously she was just fantastic last year. Her points are down just slightly this season. What would you say that? She's doing this year than than she did last year. Where where is she taking her game to another level the first area? She's taking her game to another level is Leadership on and off court. She's more of a vocal leader. She's organizing our team better. She has a good pulse of the team. As to win to win to push it went to Kinda slow down. She didn't have that last year. She's doing a better job of standing what to call win. You know who to set up on their hot what to run in particular situations And you know what? I'm really proud of her lately. She's been really taking care of the basketball. Which I think is a very valuable. I think. Assist to turnover ratio point guard extremely valuable. And she's done a good job of growing that area so her decision makings better. And I think overall in a she so unselfish see. She's a prolific scorer. But that's not all she wants to do. She wants to win. She doesn't care how she does. Whatever it takes the nights that she's been offense She goes and gets twelve rebounds sixty of says she's just maturing as a player and I've I'm fortunate I've been able to be a part of that absolutely and when you look at her game and trying to stay away from the turnover bug were to a lot of turnovers. Come in your mind so when I talked to. We have a lot of conversations about this that I've played with really some of the best in the world in a Subaru. One my team for many years What she gets in trouble with every small so she does a great job of drawing and getting in the paint with five people around her. So if you look at sometimes. There's literally five players in the paint guarding her. And leaving our shooters open. So sometimes she gets too deep and then she can't see where to pass the ball and the so I think she's learning how to jump. Stop before and pass the ball on balance not jumping out of bounds. Like jump stopping in passing on balances. She's gotten better that and I think the other areas she's gotten better and is reading where the mismatches are. So let's say she's using a pick and roll on the right side of the core. All defensive set will snaking into left by worth two on one on the other side. I think understanding where to drive win as part of her game that's really elevated and But I'd say the other thing jump stopping under control and then the third thing is knowing personnel so there are some. It's hard to pass to a six six player running down the court in the key. They're probably not gonNA catch a really hard path but then maybe a more versatile experienced player. That's a you know. A A more versus four. She can catch those passes so I think understanding you know give it to the big girl of high. Give it to the verse Lavar. You can give her any kind of outs So understanding personnel putting. Her teammates in good situations has been area. She's really grown in this year. I love it. Thank you so much for that. That detailed breakdown. We'll certainly be watching for that in these big games this week. I I WANNA take you Kinda. Just get a sense from you. Four years in In Arizona. What are the challenges? The biggest challenges of coming back to a place where you're so beloved and You know the star and everybody believes in you in every way to turn this program around and that's what's happening right now. But what were the biggest challenges bounce that Personally coming back in and trying to rebuild a program where you once once we're a star in. I'm sure you've got that Jersey in the rafters. Well I think the biggest challenge initially was good when I graduated and I think that expectation was high in the beginning like Oh we need to be there so I wasn't sure how long it takes for us to get there so for me. I think there was a little bit of pressure just because we had been bad so long and then everybody Yuki wanted me like the saving grace but like it takes time to build a program and so I think we've built this program really fast and I don't think this is really normal so I think realistically I didn't think it would fast if you ask me. You think it'd be a topping fifteen team to begin the year I was Probably not there yet but in a couple of years we will so. I knew I would do it. I had a lot of confidence. I knew it wasn't a matter of if it was a matter of win at just didn't know when that when would so players like Sam Thomas who everybody overlooked didn't have a lot of scholars about not allow the PAC twelve offered came and took a chance her first year. We won six games and then after that Kate Wreath Kate First. Mcdonald's all American then after that you know airy I recruited area Washington area..

"That this little thing wasn't even a thing you know less than a year ago until late in the spring so I'm really glad that you've found us. Thanks for sticking here. We've got a dearborn coming up in a second. But first I want to tell you a little bit about my travels here recently. Went DOWN TO SAN ANTONIO COUPLE SATURDAYS AGO watch the. Utsa women's basketball team host rice a little conference USA action. Did it with my man. Ladera IN MCLEAN ON. Espn plus in fact. He can still find that broadcast if you search like Utsa Rice you can find that one and Tunis in see how it all went down ended up being a lot closer game than it probably looked on paper. Nancy Mulkey was out for rice in that game. Rice of course winning conference USA last year both regular season the postseason title going to the NCAA. Tournament rises been on an incredible roll the last two years but they were without Nancy mulkey their big six foot nine player in the middle and so they have plenty of capable players including the player of the year in conference. Usa last year and the PRESEASON CONFERENCE USA Player of the year. This year in Erica Mackay. Yes the littlest to go McKay and all my Gosh is she fun to watch. And it's I'm not breaking any news. If anybody saw player at Pepperdine or anybody saw her play it rise the last couple of years. You know it. I've seen her play the last three years now and just her game is so solid and so sound all the way around. She's got this unbelievably strong body. I mean just pound for pound. You cannot move her. She's only five foot nine and certainly if she was six three or four like her sisters she would have a huge WNBA UPSIDE. And you know she. I maybe she is at Rice because you know she basically went to Rice because she is big into education. She wants to be a doctor. I'm sure she could do that at Stanford as well or or somewhere like that. But you know that doesn't really matter the point is she is just an absolute monster and she doesn't even have to look to score in fact she doesn't even really look to score a lot. She kind of scores when she needs to. Or when she's the best option she's just one of those on real fundamental basketball players that it seems almost always doing the right thing so we get through the first two quarters in. It's a closer game than probably a lot of people thought on paper mainly because Mulkey is out and UTSA has very scrappy cards. Little kid named Michaela Woods who is going to be great. She's a freshman right now listed at five six. She Ain't five six but it doesn't matter. She attacks the bucket with reckless abandon. I think you're going to be hearing her as a top score in the NCW over the next couple years but woods was keeping them in it several things including the turnover bog work keeping UTSA around. And then Erica. Mackay just decides to take over scores just in the third quarter nineteen points just in the third quarter. She goes eight for eight from the field just in the third quarter and completely turns the game around from a game that was somewhat in doubt to a game. That's not in doubt heading into the fourth quarter and that is the greatness of the youngest ago. Mckay WANNA get Erica on the show. Some time I've been I've been trying a little bit here and there to test those waters because Just want to know what makes her tick. Because I want to know what makes everybody named tick because There's something special in those bloodlines for sure that she is just as special in her own way and really fun player to watch. I hope you get to watch Erica. Kumi Cape Play. Some time. Down the line. If you've never seen her well coming up on the show a DEA Barnes the head coach of the Arizona wildcats so Arizona poking around for head coach a few years ago and they decide to go with somebody. They know very well more of the best players in the history of the program in a porn and men has. She turned it around fast here on this conversation. We'll talk about how fast she's turned it around. How much even surprises her. How fast this is going Some of the keys this weekend as they go to Oregon and to Oregon State and how her team is approaching this back half of the season as they tried to snap.

Isn't that really what it boils down to is. How can we contribute best right? And that's why I'm excited to read this book. Yeah it's at one thing I've noticed recently as it's almost easier in there so many things trying to pull US inwards ADIA focus on on self and your own situation your own personality and your own development but yet what really matters in the end of the day at the end of a career or lifetime frankly is that we feel proud about what we've put back into the world now what we've taken out of and so that's where almost all of this recent work focuses focuses. How can we help people to do more meaningful things for others to? They're working a lot of this work on this. Most recent book really started with a quote that I've always been inspired by Dr King said Life's most persistent and urgent question is what are you doing for others and an emmy sound like a big picture existential question. But I've tried to ask myself that question almost every day over the last few years and I finally ask that question are early on in the day and I- Orient my efforts around things that I'm doing that will make a difference for other people a week from now a month now a generation from now I end up doing more meaningful work throughout the day. That hopefully is more service to my community and the light bulb turn for me. When I've started pursuing this leadership path breath more intentionally was when I got past the head noise when I got past my limiting beliefs when I got past my imposter syndrome things really clicked and went into overdrive when I said hey you know. Leadership is really about. How do I add value in every transaction? How do I contribute? How do I and then it removed myself in all my kind of internal noise away from the equation right and so it became external channel? Like how can I advise the situation authentic genuine way. Not In a way where. I'm going to do something so that you can get something you you're gonna I'm GonNa get something I'm from you right. It's easy to fall into that trap too but to authentically contribute. That's when it really starts to turn the corner right. Yeah I think we've got to move past the transactional transactional piece of a deer point. It's because it's a way to Orient your day. Where if you're doing something that you're proud of you do? We need to be able to kind of see. The benefit has rather people because that gives us more motivation to continue to do more and give more back. And you know the piece that I didn't realize until I got deeper deeper into the research and work here is that When you really can orient big parts of your day around what? You're you're doing for others it also makes your day's just easier and less stressful. Because you're not as worried about what people are thinking of you or what might happen to you or your unconditional conditioner. Your own situation and I've had some conversations recently where I've talked to friends about well. Yeah it's it's one thing to be able to worry about what you're putting back into the world but what I found personalized it's a pretty tactical wages to minimize your own stress and worry throughout the day because genuinely focused on what you're doing for even one other prisoner. That's one of your kids. A friend a spouse a customer or a colleague. It takes worry away when you're rand towards your own needs and
Steps TO BUILDING YOUR MARKET AND SELLING MORE
"Did you sell when you were in Drexel's well started off selling car wash controller so like you know stick your car to the full service car wash and and it moves through the tunnel and all the right machine Sheen's come on at the right time they'll that was the computer I sold wanted that out and who would you sell it to gas stations or car wash those full service is car Washington there's there's a lot of dealers in that market that sell to those car washes in their local areas so those are my main customers did you like it yeah it was great I got the same benefit that my Stepdad got I I got to work from home I had a lot of flexibility I would get up early in the morning the guy I work for taught me really well he taught me how to smile and dial and how to how to get focused on it be good at it and be affected so I could get up in the morning have my a coffee start making my calls and heck by noon I was done the only thing I had to do in the afternoon was processing any orders I had taken and you know no paperwork and stuff like that and did really well and and they'll cool and what was the impetus to start your own gig young company will long story short I did well with that and then ended up getting hooked up with a software company in the energy business here in Houston it was a start up that had this Israel unique software that we were selling to gas exploration companies so now I go from seven to these you know car wash dealers are pretty small call mom and pop businesses to selling million dollar software packages two billion dollar corporations right a whole different deal so lot of learning there but ended up doing pretty well with it and we grew I hired sales people and we ended up needing a tool to keep track of things right make sure we're staying in touch with the right people at all these oil Oh companies you know very complex sale cycle with lots of influencers and all that and so we were using act way back when you know that was Umbrian Adia these kind of things back then and it was great but then we merged with a competitor and I inherited this Sir far-flung sales team where some of them were out at Denver where our corporate headquarters in Houston mom worked for Hump from home and other places and keeping them all in sync up in the same act database was a real nightmare this was right win salesforce had just I come on the market they were brand new and so we thought wow that sounds perfect for us it'll be the internet we won't have to sink anymore everything will be real time awesome it was good in those ways but it wasn't as mature as it is now and we missed a lot of the functionality -ality that act hat and so so we that's what we just decided to do is start the first online version Anna Act that's what sales next was initially I remember trying to use multi user act it was it was a great tool for an individual sales rep but right out great for a team and as an individual but then it's on your Europeans see so if anything goes wrong you have to back it up you have if it gets corrupt you're hosed examined the old days of software right yeah those before they even knew what the cloud was yeah and so how do you sell it today is it do you have a salesforce or is it more more of a marketing automation type sale advertise and then demo and close yeah I mean it's a lot of that we do a little bit of both really so you you know Pete lots of people come to our website they see our ads and and things like that at the come to our website and sign up for free trial and we they play around with it and we do demos and stuff like that but then also we're out there you know banging on doors and pursuing sort of strategic accounts and markets as well and what do you see sales people doing wrong today I mean you know it's funny thing is it hasn't really changed the it's the same things that we were doing wrong back when I was online sales person you're not doing enough prospecting you're not filling the funnel and you're not following up enough that's the two main things today where we see the most low hanging fruit is you know in any sales organization right you go your especially in outbound sales organization where you're cold calling or knocking on doors or going doing a lot of networking or trade shows you know you're going through a lot of leads you're talking to a lot of people and you only close maybe twenty twenty five thirty percent of so that means eighty or seventy percent of all the people you engage with don't become customers and most sales teams even today basically basically throw them away you know they're not doing anything to stay in touch with those people because they're so focused on who am I going to close this month right yeah and and that's that so many of the things that we sell our event based meaning that you cultivate a need and a desire and you have to be there at that time that its surface yeah a lot of education a lot of persuasion a lot of transfer of ownership and that those long long time gaps it's easy to forget them it's easy to deprioritize them right and some of it we should but in the more ambitious just one of us should be able to do both yeah well it's a great point you're bringing up especially in a technology sale of some sort where there is a lot of that education that goes on boy you invest so much in creating that awareness and need in the customer's mind and if they choose not to act right now for all kinds of reasons could be budget could be things that you're not in control of but you've made that huge investment so if all you do is just kind of stay in contact with them so that when the time's right for them they they call you then that's magic and now today with with technology like ours and others you can automate that right where they're just get an email from you once a month that's kind of given them the opportunity to tell you the time is right if if I ignore orpheum emails from you and then also on the sixth one I download the PDF or watch your video or something that's me saying times right you should call me and one of the best pieces of sales advice I ever got was from a manager who said you know you got the the elephant hunters over there that wasn't really me and then he got the guy who chases everything and nobody has time for that I try and focus on the ones that can and will close and as many any of those as you can sure in on that I that stuck with me because the elephant hunting too risky and working working eighty hours a week doesn't really scale right especially you like to hunt right I know you you WanNa you WanNa let lecture sales people like you say just focus on the ones who have a strong need now enter closeable and let technology take care of you know keeping them in front of a much larger audience than they ever could on the phone or manual though and that's it I think today with technology and you know we have just the opposite problem that we had fifteen years ago where we had no data today okay we have too much data right and even when I got started in sales we had zero data you could by phone books wasn't the Internet it was hard finding the main number never mind somebody's number
Is WeWork's Business Model Viable?
"Today we're going to look at the complex topic week which is easily work at viable business model be if you've been following. Actually the news lately you so that we work is pretty much anywhere and why. I don't like to cover things that really into the news because there is a lotta noise around. It's very hard to make sense of it there. Everyone when denning opinion like what's going on. I won't do really highlight. I flew points and really give respective again just because I think it is a lot of noise right now so St John's is a viable business model. It's not an for several reasons now. Let's go point by point to over a few things that we might want to look at when it comes to to we work now we work was at ease was a private company actually still a company that will strain to actually get a go through an IPO was trying to become a public company and the one thing which is interesting interesting is that we work adjust two thousand eighteen. According to several kinds of valuations at our company was worth more than forty billion dollars which which is a lot breath so now one question getting comes to mind Isa are we actually going through a private bobble in terms of private companies education because what's up rent now. It seems that at least in two thousand nineteen the company's got listed as they didn't manage to actually we have a successful appeals and actually manage to go to a really excitement of the market doc it around those companies now. What are the reasons behind it and you know when talking about companies that I feel I'm thinking about companies like Uber or lift or other. There are other companies that are really field this year now. The the the party said I mean look at the the we work financials the one thing that you know this race that of course company now but he arrived from two thousand eighteen eighty two to nineteen with talking about the first Amancio Manso year but this time he also improved. It's expensive quite substantially there things to take into account. If if we work was going to wipe with buzzy the numbers you can imagine that we wouldn't have oldies noise that that he's right now and one thing is also about timing timing timing. It's betty white important as you imagine it can really make or break a company and in in this year that there are the worry about recession that increasing freezing you you can imagine that for a company that could afford to actually go through an IPO without having a viable business model l. A. Becomes very hard when you go through a decision at his video especially when your primary customers are companies that actually are stuffed upset if we go through a decision would be the first companies to actually suffered from it. It's very important also delighted that we work as a really so you know improving its enterprise customers which we're getting that those might seek if we go through a recession but at the meantime on the other end if we think we interbike customers by be using we work as a really an expansion buckner so we'd ally on we work as enterprise company because we're trying to expand the operation with one free since I'm just thinking in terms of me me as a as a potential enterprise customer we work so instead of relying on internal resources and expanding geographically because he may be a recent too risky ASCII because then it becomes harder to to to to cat space and stuff we we use we work as a partner for so again imagine that if we both rotation diseases diseases. I sorta viable which will get cut so again recession. He's hard because for especially for a business model which hasn't proved viable yet yet. It's it's very hard another aspect that you know this when you go through the. We Work Appeal our attempt IPO because it was if you following the news right now you know that the company has withdrawn so far at least delaying the ideal so in might reconsider near enough in a few months things are stopped workout free since death thinking fire quite a quite a few employees but one thing that you know these when you go through a dealer of the as one which is the forum that companies as companies to meet when they after will probably could tell there to meet these form to the SEC has the Security Exchange Commission. What is that. There are a few quite a few buzzwords so so there are many things that we work is is doing that again if the company was a viable business model if we were in a timing where things were working properly. We were not going through are probably the people were not expecting a recession to come. Those things will be steep paths. I think again for many passwords you might use if on the other end you have Saudi auty business that there's nothing that can save you a if you look at the financial companies like starbucks that had somebody uses the buzzwords him in the culture of the company and in many cases companies themselves are caught who are really cultures. Really you know they really try to emphasize. This is when Bet Katcher dating. That's what makes them special even again. Companies are businesses that make money. They need to make money consistently so fittings things had come out to mind when we go to the one we worked. His first world. We work is trying to really redefine a new sort of model which is which combining goals space as now. If you know how commercial real estate works you know that usually what happens is that you ran an office our RSP's commercial space for your company and all you do is really you pay the rent and then free since the end of the year you might be the so called the Camman on Adia maintenance fees. which really are the shared the shared expenses that that the you know the lender the landlord might anticipate for for the commercial tenants? Annan's Gadiya switched. Dan can be spread for for the Commercial you know Florida Florida the the the people renting those commercial spaces at the end of the year depending on the kind of contract that you have of course you can pay the quote the pulmonary maintenance in different ways but again these these important for the landlord in which is a running business because he can actually get back a few of the of a did the expenses that he had on no commercial property and it can be also used as a leverage when you have a contract with a commercial tenant what happens is a union see something like okay. I'm going to reduce the KOMO Nadia maintenance fees. If you WANNA be free since then I amount of money now we were starting to redefine this space by actually adding more to it so that a a company sparked of the we were community that will be using the co working of a company actually would be a retainer so be a monthly Italy fee a subscription fee and that's where the space has a Saturday's comes to police now if we were also voted species said listen if this is. GonNa turn are now to be a viable model. I mean we we're going to look at it in in the instagram and I think it's fine you know people arguing whether accompany bunny can come up with these new analogy and just get we did. I think he can if he has a viable business model again here. The point these I is that the company is in bad timing and in these bad timing where we're going through a recession it's using up the bats words and it's not showing showing a viable business model because again those same words that we're seeing today that were used a back in two thousand sixteen seventeen when we work was considered one of the hottest companies around and valued over forty billion dollars. I think what's making huge difference. He's the fact that the company right now is a very bad timing go there are also that aspects like of the corporate governance had the fact that the recent the the the founder CEO Newman as been having a little control and managing teams out not transparently from from the way it was you know leasing space to the company and also the fact that the company Bunny at Bush's including each for technology company even though again we work a main attempt is really to form a commissioner real estate contract which usually again it's it's a it's simple contracting something which is more on on on Saturday space where you know it's common in software as a service speeds in all the other services industry that we have today in in the in the after throughout the Internet the area where you can just fight several kinds of surveys you leverage on data technology another savviest easiest to actually have have the company spot from being something on on a daily basis now aiding said. Did they really again another another keeping the thing it's about the addressable market where the company argues that had he said these these these market that which can be I think over over three years or something like that tight remember. The exact number is not the when he comes to this will markets cadets beak big question mark when Gumbiner essay these going to be these album is going to be the market in ready the how how do you even know because that depends many variables and you can be really sick as possible or you can dream big but hey at the end of the bench about how economy is going to evolve and you know. It's very a hard to predict so again. is we work a viable business model. It's not and it's not because is not showing yet a bottom line which which it's going to work. ability heats a it's really a bad timing where the company still using buzzwords in a time where you need to be more really sick we're going through and so there are more people which are skeptical about what's going on any future customer base which is made of startups of course the risk is that you're gonna be the you're going to be the first company which is GonNa four once the recession comes and then if you know we asked whether we work is a fraud. I mean if we look at the business itself. Of course it's real business if we city whether the numbers are if we rely on the numbers they gave plus in the financial statements with these these further not something that you know there's going to be an investigation or something things will will you know would would be figuring out right now. It's really understanding that when you don't have a viable business model and you're going through a recession and and you're keep using the male that you'll be using in the past to Pamper your valuation a private market which is less than spying compared to market reasoning to change your mindset need to make sure that you understand that probably market it takes a different approach Yuguang through our session unique understand the context so really for me. This is a lack of understanding on the context right now so that we went through recession understanding that at the same model that used used to get to a fifty billion dollars relation is not the same to actually keep their valuation and five there and that actually when you have a viable business model. It's very eddie easy to argue whether the company is going to work them much or more
'Downton Abbey,' 'Breaking Bad,' and Why TV Is Still Jealous of Movies
"Chris. You're here along with Amanda because you know a lot about television and Amanda and I are for a little bit out on television sort of as a general rule. I'm post. TV POST TV separate succession. Now there are some television shows that I love. I started to watch when this weekend that I think is incredibly well made which is called unbelievable but I was just home with my mom for a little while and she while she's a stranger to cable news but she adorable still gets a lot of her news from the newspaper so two days later she'll be like. Did you hear about Joe. Biden and I'll like what what do you mean. Did something new happens you know. Did you hear about this phone. Call and that's just what you did with unbelievable where you were like. I'm breaking to you guys that there's this show well no now. I admit I am one one week late and you've already covered the show on the WOK yeah. We've already covered the sh the show on the site. I just didn't have the time to get to you. I hear you I'm seeing all these movies but one thing that is interesting that it's happening right now is is that I even though the just happened and even though TV is having this incredible boom time I feel like TV is still a little jealous of the movies and we know that because Downton Tanabe rather than comeback as an eight part miniseries has decided to become a full length feature film and the people said. Yes they said Yes to the tune of thirty three million dollars a lot of money for an extension of the Downton Abbey University was a show that was popular and a phenomenon sort of when it started. I believe the first episode of the Hollywood respective podcasts was a recap of the Dow naby premier guess which is just amazing what times past its Niche Butler's Butler's and and and you know that's a show that I liked and I really did you recap Amanda you recap what an amazing time capsule of our life on the Internet in creating culture and now it's a fulling feature feature film which is something that I think twenty years ago it had happened you would have said Downton Abbey really grew up and stepped up to the big leagues in this case. I wonder how you guys feel about what what it means to extend what was once a broadcast. TV Show into movie platform and also like why why this movie work. Why did it work so well. I have a couple of sites and the answer answer of why to turn it into a feature film is money which worked out because it made thirty three million dollars we had a great piece on the ringer last week by writer named Kate Loyd who's based in London and it was he's about the downtown Abbey Economy essentially in how the show changed both tourism in the UK and like she went to a lot of fancy locations and like talk to British these people but also how it changed the British TV industry and down abby the show. Was this wakeup call I think for people in the UK okay that people would from other parts of the world would watch when these costume dramas it was kind of a revival of the costume drama and also had a finance the shows so that they could me distributed around the world and so the piece argues that you know everything from peaky blinders to howards end to all of the things that we now consume and treat as part of the television firmament at least the latest generation of them are a result of Downton Abbey success right that show relaunch yeah Adia so in that way. It's not that surprising to me that it did while because it was like a legitimate phenomenon and we've lived with it for a long time in maybe season six. I wasn't as great as season one but it made a lot of money in a lot of people liked watching it. It's short relief to because the two other big releases over the weekend and that it beat out were ad Astra which was covered at length on this podcast last week and as a movie that I would recommend people see and Rambo last blood. Did you catch up with that Chris. I didn't see I saw ad Astra instead of Rambo because this was not playing anywhere near me. Oh that's a shame why was that I woke neighborhood for you. so neither of those films which are very male centric stallone doesn't play well in. Philly yeah that's a good point you'd think he'd be in every theatre getting but I guess partially one of the the reasons why down succeeded so well is because a lot of women saw this movie and it was the primary opportunity for women at checkout films one week after hustlers dominated the box office and sensing a trend here if you like this happens four five times a year when people are like there are movies for women as well yeah. I think that's true also float yes women see movies. Rah Rah route whatever old people really see movies and the theatres is there is nothing better to do with your time if you got a mom or Gramma Ma than to take them and see the Downton Abbey. That is just wholesome entertainment for everyone so I think that that is as important. The age is as important as the gender breakdown on this one. Let's let's just very quickly. Even though Chris has not seen the downton movie talk about what's good about the downs and movie you and I attempted to recap the film for Chris via slack last week. You feel like we did a good job. Ah Yeah I think so recognized all the names. All the actions made sense I just did they didn't really come together in a sort of visual sentence for me so that is actually a notable spoke to Michael Angler about this. It is a little bit of Downton on steroids. You know the theme music is amplified in such a way that maybe they had three hundred more brass instruments. Mintz played playing the theme song. There's a lot of drone shots of Downton Abbey. It is it is a a muscular rise version of this upstairs downstairs costume drama the film itself did strike me though I think you may have originally said this to me as just one long episode of Downton Abbey to me it was like a Christmas special sel which they do in the UK and I think it was the season two Christmas special of Downton Abbey which is when Matthew and Mary finally get together and like kissing the snow outside outside of the side of the House I would say it's on par with the Christmas special except for like to party set-pieces instead of one as you said and fancier dresses addresses and I guess there's like a first episode climax halfway through the movie and then a second episode kind of bringing everyone home. The thing is downstairs to get into some hijinks and then there's ramifications upstairs. It's crazy what happens on almost like it's upstairs downstairs I thought it was an enjoyable movie and I'm not surprised that it was successful. I'm surprised it was successful. It was also the biggest movie in the history of focus features which just fascinating I have spoken to some people who worked worked on this movie and they have when they acquired the rights to release this movie. They said we have our IP. We have our version of superhero movie and focus features. That's what I was. GonNa say really leans into that older audience that you're talking about the identify women as their audience much more clearly and this is a part of the same strategy so I wouldn't say necessarily the Ad Astra had this problem but I do think that it is near impossible to sell anything anymore without some pre existing kind of awareness of what you're getting when you walk into it just because there's so many options for people that if you just sorta like here's a movie about butlers and rich people story. Michelle dockery people are going to be like I don't know but if it's something that they have this decade long relationship leashes ship with if they have the kind of extra screen relationship that they have they cared about and if there is like I was I was watching a lot of linear television this week because I was with my mom. We were watching the Ken Burns documentary. There was down Abbey stuff sandwich. Every episode of the Ken Burns Documentary Music talking to the country music to let you know it's coming out. Here's the history of the show. Here's a recap of everything that happened. Here's the making of the show like they actually did their push. It just just happened on public television. We didn't see it as much necessarily as like Robert Downey junior driving around in an Audi with a Samsung phone pushing vendors do you think that this is now now a sort of MCI -ation of Downton or is this just a one off thing that they struck gold on this one movie or is there going to be another one have been teasing the sequel for weeks. Now that's yeah yeah they've been talking about how the possibilities open and I think you know which is code for. Yes it will happen and they certainly leave the door open in the movie. Everyone is in in a happy place but more hijinks cannon sue and I'm sure well a Dan. I'm curious how far you can probably only take down into world war. Two 'cause post World War. Two I think all of those states just for their museums museums the economy economy of the upper class in the UK just breaks down and it's just not how upstairs downstairs doesn't really apply as much anymore the film kind of glances at the end to the how much longer can this go on which I thought was an interesting potential way to seal office equal in the end zone dunkirk what we'll talk about this more. Maggie Smith is in this movie Maggie Smith Chris do modify spoil Israel okay. I guess if you are really really strict about spoilers. Turn it off now. Even but Maggie Smith gives a speech that's kind of like a farewell speech but notably nothing actually conclusively happens to whether Maggie Smith math will be in future episodes of down nappy. TV show or something happens to her but then they're like. We'll see what happens yeah she could've done urge becomes iron man. It's incredible credibly. She defeats the end of the movie. It's wild. It's nineteen twenty seven in this movie that's right. They've got like twenty more years. Yeah okay. What's interesting to me about. This is is the movies in theaters. It's an extension of a television show there have been there's been the super sizing of TV shows into movie form a lot over the last year. This isn't the first first time it's happened. In the ninety. s we saw the kind of like met a rift commentary on things by having. Beverly hillbillies movies and Brady Bunch movies now what we have is just a more clear extension of the stories that originally told there was a dead movie earlier. This year was a between two ferns movie also released over the weekend which is not quite the same serialized television but is in the same tradition in a way away and then in October. We have a breaking bad movie called El Camino Dave Dina do this for a long time. They've been dying to get this kind of multiplatform storytelling going because of the amount of money there is if you can actually do what they wanted to do with dark tower where you can tell something that has has a feature presentation that maybe is the sort of the danger of the story but like you have other storylines going on TV and that you could actually create a like twelve month a year sport out of your story. That's why they want you know and now there are different things now.

Welcome back to the show as always our mad. Scientist who is what we call him. He's actually a independent investor and analyst and Anton woman is with us. Anton, there is an awful lot going on in politico. As far as automotive a concerned, a General Motors got a two point five or two point two five billion dollar investment from SoftBank. What are they going to do with that money improve that canteen? Basically what they're doing is that this is the entity that was mostly called cruise automation that General Motors acquired not that much more than about a year. Or so ago, they're developing a truly driver and vehicle based around the Chevrolet volt to start with and GM was going to fund this development all by itself. But somehow they gathered that SoftBank which is also invested. In uganda? Among other things would be a good investor to have on board for no other reason because it's sort of blocks how if you think about it their ability to. To invest in other entities. So they wanted to do was to make sure that this entity was on their side in this battle to achieve a truly driverless car going forward. GM seemed to initially have quite a strong player in the market with the bolt. But the further we get down the historical lime. There seems to be some major challenges to that vehicle. Things like the pace other vehicles coming did you think they can hold onto this sort of market attention with new vehicles that are coming out and what's on the table for them. Well, GM, of course, has an ambitious plan to come out with a long list new electrified vehicles calendar year twenty.

"We are not saying that statins are causing dementia. What we're saying is at least what I'm saying. Tom clarify for himself. They're going to be a subset of patients whose risk of dementia does go up with the Staten, and it's our job. If we're prescribing those drugs to know exactly who those patients are and to the best of my reading the literature plus understanding the nature of the biology, it's probably the patients in whom we overly suppress synthesis for whom they don't make that much suppress cellular synthesis, which has nothing to do with the amount of cholesterol you measure in the blood great point has not cholesterol synthesis is not affected per se by PCS nine inhibitors. Zanna. My is interesting if you go it is that a my monotherapy? I actually get a little reflex increase in cholesterol synthesis and vice versa. Hyper absorb stands. There's a little bit of physiologic physiological stasis going on. This is not changing levels that he's talking and that believe it or not has become one of the times when I like using Adia is if I've got a patient who really needs a statin, because when you look at their numbers, you get the sense that this is an clearance deficiency, but you want to boost their synthesis a little bit. You do. It can combine it with Zeti a- and you'll sometimes get that reflex. I argue with clinicians to who they are doing sterile testing, so I time identifying my hyper absorbs and surely make sure is that a my zone board, my April bellowing therapy and that patient, but I'll make the case for you, even if you do those markers in your normal absorb cholesterol, but you have an April, be problem even by taking a normal absorb of cholesterol and making them Hypo absorb the genetic model is they live longer if they have genetic a loss of function of Neiman pixie one protein. So even in a patient who's not hyper absorbing cholesterol, you do get additional April, be lowering. Maybe not of the same negative, but you get and you're changing him in today.

"Friday Chris Robertson? For boomer and geo. On a day in which the Yankees had just an awful night. In Boston they tease the daylights Adia idiots that. Home run, early after, the air. That, really opened things up Brock Holt. May that our right out of the gate it's three. Nothing it looks like the Red Sox plan, a sloppy game and I of course at the tweet something. Stupid did you see what I tweeted, out retail such a. Moron and I apologized Yankee fans because I didn't, mean to do. It I said I know Yankee? Fans aren't going to. Complain but are we looking at yet another Yankee Red Sox blowout We were, yes we do it again. I can't help yourself I didn't mean to do it wrong you're wrong when you're right it's. It's remarkable talent. Talent it's like a blind squirrel finding not which apparently that's. How I ripped you on the air the other day I, wanted to agree with something. You tweeted and in doing, so I had to. Give you a backhanded. Compliment by saying I agree with Chris more it's like a blind squirrel finding. Another you go but the Yankees teaser last night there. Up for nothing CC shaky but wasn't imploding by any stretch he was able to get through the. First three innings. Remember the Boston Red Sox were over eight with runners in scoring. Position over the first three innings think about that Yankees had lead boom makes the, decision to go to Jonathan, holder and of, course it all just came on. Rabbit in the fourth because, quite frankly not only Jonathan holder stink but Arab boom left them in way too. Long and, I mentioned it earlier but I think it's, worth repeating eleven strikeouts the first fifteen outs, the Yankees made Last night and you talked about over eight. With runners in, scoring position Yankees weren't enough position because a lot of the. Times there's nobody on base they got the early and then, the hit by Stanton and. Then the home run but, after that they didn't. Have a lot of. Runners not you know an and they are they are not producing traffic is. Boon likes to call it on the base paths and. It is it is a Downer it's not the end of the world they've been winning without a. Lot of traffic. They hit a lot of home runs we know that they lead. The major leagues by a lot in that regard they'll probably continue to hit home, runs and win games with, home runs but, when people call and they say. They hit too many run, you know it has it has some validity when you look at Houston in Boston And the style. Of play that those two teams play and the balance that they have as, compared to the Yankees I think it's reason for concern if you look. At the three lineups and you take Sanchez out even if you, put your judge back. In you assume Sanchez. Is going to have an awful year I don't. Think that their lineup is as good as those other two it's, different because and Joan. I talked about this a lot we started going through major league baseball with. The last decade at teams. That don't strike out and we started noticing a, parallel they kept winning the Kansas, City Royals didn't strike out a lot the Astros struck. Out the fewest time sitting in baseball, last year and it bothers, me I know for sure that teams, and players don't care about striking out, anymore it's not a big deal I think that when the Yankees squirms last night the. Yankees scored seven runs now most. Of it. Was on the home run ball, by but at the end of the day if. You. Score score runs I think when you have a lineup the. Depends on the home run ball you're, more prone to the slump and the night in which you. Do nothing absolutely compared so that's where it's a negative absolutely true because last night against Bryan Johnson they scored, five runs against him in five innings sure they struck out a lot in a lot of home runs but at the end of the day it's about scoring runs and. They scored a lot of runs. But I think when you have a line of the depends on, the home run and strikes out a lot, you're more likely to go through those kinds of fun And and I, think there's a negative to it as well in that Red Sox ran all over the, last night they were, they were Bugs Bunny at around the basis on you know it was They were. Stealing basis they were moving on doubles they were scoring. On singles they were they were moving. There was motion on the field I think that makes, you more of a, baseball player I think you. Feel better about yourself I think when you go. In after you, strike, out it's no big deal. But it is not high. It isn't all I got that one pretty good or you know we. We eat out a run there's no upside. To. It it just. Sort, of accepted now where it used to be a negative it went from being a. Negative to being okay it's never good no. You never feel good about yourself and a Red Sox built on their. Home crowd the hard hits off the off the, Munster.
