Using a Client Advisory Board To Discover What Clients Value Most
"You as an adviser are not listening to your clients and and and evolving your experience based on that feedback. Then you run the risk of losing relevance to to folks. Let's let's even take that. Would that one one step farther. Which is an. I'm going to play devil's advocate here to to gently poke in the eye but stephen come on. They all say that their client driven they are always had the fiduciary they have the best best interest of their clients. They're always listening to clients but most of them don't because they don't do the one thing that you do as your major feedback originating source. So let's talk about that. Yeah it's and it's ask right. It's and you're you're specifically talking about advisory boards. You think your client driven okay great. When was the last time you systematically ask people what's most valuable about our relationship of all the things we do for you the services and how we do them what's most valuable and still as an alarmingly. Small percentage of advisers can can answer that. Yes and here's what they said. Dude i remember bringing up advisory councils which is what i used to call you. Call it advisory boards. When i was a coach in in so out of the thirty so i people that i was actively coaching. I probably did four or five of them. In united spent lots of time by the way even i our friends and we talk and we talk about a lot of this stuff and in the fear is is the largest thing. They're absolutely terrified that their clients are going to say that they're not happy. But don't you wanna know that do well. Yeah but yeah i. If they feel that way wouldn't you want to know because whether you know or not. It's kinda like it's like the little kid now. This is going to go out audio. So people can't see but i'm gonna put my hands over my face. It's like the little kid going. You can't see me right. There's still thinking it but here's the point. It's they're not unhappy with you. You got all their money. They wouldn't do that if they were unhappy with what they got so cut it out. Stop being insecure. it's you know it's they love you and the hard the hard part. The challenge of an advisory board is getting some constructive feedback. People are worried about. All they're going to say something bad in front of other clients. the hard part is getting critical feedback out of them because they don't want to say the the hard stuff but it's more it's more it's more critical than ever because we talk about. What kind of competition are we going to get from. Amazon google and facebook and those kinds of things. You know what dude. You're already competing with amazon. And it's not because they're doing a robo advice but it's because they're resetting expectations of clients.

Biogen's New Alzheimer's Drug Is a Medicare Budget Buster
"New drug for Alzheimer's comes with rather controversial approval, and now we're learning a huge price tag. The drug is called Adele Adele home, I should say adult film. It was approved by the FDA last week. It's $56,000 per year for a supply. Medicare copays could reach $11,000. The Alzheimer's Association's sharply criticized the manufacturer, Biogen for that price tag. You're about to hear from Paul Seagirt. He is with PCs advisers there in Northern California firm. They help businesses manage health care costs, And he says, This is a perfect example of what is wrong with how we approve and distribute drugs. We've got great health care how we pay for? It's crazy. This is a perfect example. You've got a $56,000 drug that the FDA is just approved. Three of the scientists who were on the review panel That made a recommendation to the FDA have resigned because of the 11 in November, 10 said. No, I'm recommending to approve it and one said, I don't know. And yet they still approved a drug that Has, you know, really hasn't shown itself to be effective. They're going to build $56,000. A year for each person that's on this drug. It's incredible. The FDA advisory board gave the thumbs down to this drug. Yet it got approved by the agency. The question is why It's a great question, and unfortunately, I There's a lot of financial drivers that drive our whole system. I'm a free market person. I'm not against that. But we've a lot. We're approving this thing and then saying we're going to allow them to do a nine year confirmatory trial. Which in those nine years if they do end up confirming that it is not Very effective or not that effective or not at all, effective. We're gonna have spent hundreds of billions of dollars at that time frame. We're

Peptoids as Therapeutic Tools
"So today we're going to speak with dr guild diamond. He's on the scientific advisory board of maxwell biosciences and as a professor in the department of oral immunology infectious diseases at the university of louisville. So welcome to the podcast. dr diamond. Here yeah this is really fun. So you're Taught year research is kind of colliding with the space that i'm really interested in personally and something that my research program is working on so i'm really excited excited to have you on the podcast. So we're talking about Toy dhs today and so could you give us a little sense about what is a pep toyed. And how is it different from a peptide if we remember our basic biology peptide is a string of amino acids. It's short protein. Basically one chain of amino acids and an amino acid has a specific structure. It's got carbon and is therefore bonds coming off the carbon and one of those is a hydrogen that other one goes to a harbach civil gasset a third one goes to an. Mri and the fourth is dysfunctional group. And there are twenty different functional groups. And that's what makes the different protein structures so pep toyed is a chain of monomers just like a peptide except the unit is not an amino acid. It's like an amino acid but the functional group comes off the allied instead of the central carpet. And what that does is when you link them together in a chain. It's still all the functional groups as a peptide would so it has the typical structure but the bonds are not typical peptide bond and the importance of that is it means. It can't be digested away by enzymes. Digest brody proteins.

We just heard from people living with mental illness and the fact that many of them hear voices. but not all people with schizophrenia. hear voices in your clinical experience. How prevalent is this symptom. Hallucinations are one of the five main symptoms listed in the diagnostic manual. We use to diagnose schizophrenia. they're very common. But as you said. They're not universal. I would say that. Probably three quarters or more people with schizophrenia experience. At at some point it can be episodic so at a given time somebody with this diagnosis might not be having that. But then when they have relapsed to their muskets worse it may come

Interview with Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky
"Talk to me about going forward and connecting people and the focus. You're putting on experiences but also on the lives you can create for your host. Who in part. I think are taking equity and becoming quite important for the brand. We've just heard in london here this week. That uber has said its drivers will become workers with benefits and minimum wage. So they're getting brought into the companies. So how do you sort of to advance the experience of your host but also the people that are using the platform to rent yet to great questions. Maybe i'll start with the second question host. And then i'll go to the first one the different like let's just take us versus uber. One difference in us an uber is the founders of uber created uber because they wanted to be writers another words they said it would be awesome if i could summon a black car so they started on the buyer side. We were totally opposite. My roommate and i weren't desiring to have a service like airbnb to travel because we were too broke to even want such a service. I mean we would have loved it but we were so broke. We just wanted to way to make money so we really started as host. So in that sense. I think this is a company of hosts by host for host and even if we have veered from that in the past. We're back there. And so i'm very proud of the fact that number one host have made one hundred and ten billion dollars on our platform since we started. That's pretty cool. The next thing. I'm saying i think it's cooler. Fifty five percent of that income has gone to women most ecommerce platforms. The vast majority economics. They're not evenly distributed on airbnb. The vast majority of income is outside the united states and more than half of it goes to women. it's a pretty diverse audience. We have four million host on airbnb. Ninety percent of our hosts are individual people so there is a question. How many of these are professionals. The answer is ten percent ninety percent of individuals. The most common careers are healthcare workers schoolteachers. In students these are the three most common professions that we've seen so these are truly everyday people like my parents. My parents are social workers. And it would make sense that people who need supplemental income would be everyday people for the most part one of the things we did before it went public. Is i got a piece of advice from somebody. They said. institutionalize your intentions. So that even as a public company you can minimize conflicts. Your vision and what they really meant was wants to go public. The cement of your company gets a little harden. What do you want to bake into the company before you go public. And i said one of the things i want to bake in is to create a host endowment. I want to set aside equity for host and so one of the things we did is we took nine point. Two million shares of airbnb equity and we put it into is essentially a airbnb host endowment kind of like a college endowment where it would grow every year but then some of the appreciation would get distributed into the host each year. So that was the idea that endowment is nearly two billion dollars today and growing. I hope it's one day. Larger than most college endowments and we created a host advisory board of seventeen host from fourteen countries to advise us on how to spend that money and reinvest it back to the host community. We also allowed host to invest in our ipo. And we had. I think it was fifteen thousand host. If i'm not mistaken who invested. They bought stock at sixty eight dollars. A share as you know the stock prices at the time of this recording around triple so those hosts have done really well and if i could allowed winning more host to invest in the whatever but we had some sec regulations that limited us and so these are just some of the many things we tried to do. But i just want to say like our commitment to host just beginning. Because i've committed to putting more than one hundred million dollars in my own equity into the host endowment and we're gonna continue to invest in our host because we are nothing without our host and in the end the day everybody's more of a community anything else i mean. Yeah we are a technology company in a sense but with people are buying isn't technology and they're not buying real estate we're not like zillow wh- senator of our company our host and our people and so that leads to the second question. What is airbnb about in. Where's it going when we started airbnb. Our first tagline was travel like a human. The idea was that you were like kind of treated for who you are. And you're seen for who you are valued for who you are and that was kind of the idea. I mean it was idealistic. But i can tell you. We definitely believed it in the early days and we realized that i had these two crazy ideas when we start airbnb. These crazy beliefs and people thought i was absurd. The first idea was we thought people were fundamentally good. That sounds kind of crazy because if you open any newspaper you wouldn't think they're good. People are good wise every headline about the worst of humanity. I think there was a famous quote by a former chief justice. The united states. You said i don't read the front page of the newspaper. I read the sports section. The front pages filled the man's failures. The sports pages. Filled man successes. I kind of feel like despite what we read in the news. People are funny. Good and i can tell you that we have the data to prove it. We probably more than anyone to prove what happens. When a hundred million people live together. Mostly good things sometimes bad things but statistically people are good and the second thing is true is that people are ninety nine point nine percent the same and you would never think that today given that we are so divided and yeah we spent a lot of time energy celebrating that point one percent. That makes us different. We call that culture in other things but let's not forget that we're mostly the same deep down and if you think people are good and their most the same then you'd believe that it's better to bring them together than divide them in separate them. That was the idea behind airbnb and so real estate and housing is just the beginning. We launched a few years ago. Airbnb experiences air experiences are essentially just three hour activities where you can have a host host. One other passions. You can go to tuscany. And make pasta with grandma grandma. Non an arena. Who's like an eighty plus year old grandmother who grew up during world war. Two and tells you about living in italy during the rise of fascism and then kind of what happened after and she tells you about her famous recipe and you make pasta in her house with and then you eat around the table this alternative to going to restaurants a pretty cool alternative so we have these like really interesting experiences and i think experiences is going to be a really really big product. I thought last year was going to break out year. But of course social distancing met we put on pause but we're looking at many new ways to try just connect people again. I think this is one of the loneliest times in human history right now. I think most people listening would probably say they felt some type of loneliness in the last year. We've been so separated. And i think in life we sometimes appreciate things when they're taken away from us and human connection and travels been taken away from us and i hope that makes us value at more than ever before and i'm pretty concerned about the amount of isolation happening and i don't think that social media and digital connections are fully nourishing. We actually do need real connection with real people. And i actually think it's good. Connect people are different than you. If you wanna like bridge the divide in any country. The best answer. I've heard is to just walk in other people's shoes don't argue over the internet. No one's ever changed. Someone's mind on a youtube comment section to my knowledge. But how could you not change your mind when you walk in someone. Just home live in their home walk. In their shoes do their activities. You may not agree with them but you will find that. Most of them are good and they're mostly just like you deep
UN health agency backs AstraZeneca COVID vaccine amid blood clot concerns
"The world health organization. Who set on friday that it was aware of blood clot concerns linked to a specific batch of astrazeneca oxford covid nineteen vaccine but it maintained. That experts believed that the benefits outweighed the risks according to who data hundreds of millions of doses of coronavirus vaccine have been administered globally. No one has died from any of the jobs. Spokesperson dr margaret harris told journalists during a regular briefing in geneva. Her comments coming after several countries suspended inoculation campaigns as a precaution as nine th march they have been over to sixty eight million doses of covid. Nineteen vaccines adminster since the start of the pandemic that's based on data reported. Who by national governments know causes of death have been found her being caused by covid. Nineteen vaccines to date. Dr harris noted that the. Who's independent expert. Global advisory board sage was currently assessing reports on the astra zeneca vaccine and that their findings would be made public as soon as possible. Blood clotting episodes are also common in people. So it's not clear if this was something that was going to happen or whether the vaccine was responsible the. Who spokesperson added as a friday.

J&J COVID-19 vaccine could get FDA approval within days
"The fda is getting ready to authorize a third covid vaccine emergency use in this country. This one this vaccine is from pharmaceutical giant. Johnson and johnson. And if it's authorized it would join vaccines from pfizer and madera in the us vaccination campaign. But here's the thing those other. Vaccines require two doses. This vaccine from johnson and johnson needs only one single dose to be effective. Npr science correspondent. Joe palca is here to tell us how effective good morning joe morning. well one dose. that's exciting. How good is this new vaccine. Oh it's good. It was sixty six percent effect of overall in preventing moderate to severe disease and eighty five percent protective against more severe diseases. Now for people with good memories. They'll say wait. A minute i heard that madonna and pfizer wasn't that closer to ninety five percent effective and the answer is yes they were higher but those vaccines were tested before. Some of the new variants began circulating and prevent any five percent of severe critical. Disease is really good since the goal of the vaccines is to keep people out of the hospital and keep them from dying and the other thing about this vaccine is mentioned in the intro is that it's one dose which makes the logistics of getting it to people a lot easier to remember to come back so public. Health officials are looking forward to being able to distribute the j. vaccine. This is how anthony fauci chief medical adviser to the president. Put it on. Nbc's today show to have them come in and be in the mix with the other. Two is is nothing but good news. Nothing but good news. Foul cheat now. The process usually is before a vaccine gets authorized in advisory board has to approve it right. Well yes well. Though he has to is probably an exaggeration. It doesn't absolutely has to. The fda can approve things on its own lookout but like the other two vaccines. The the fda wanted to be extremely transparent. There were some questions about whether they were rushing the vaccine to the market before they knew it was safe and they want to assure the public that this was being looked at carefully so that committee has been around for a while. it's known in the trade as burg. Pack the vaccines and related biological products. Advisory committee i love that name ver- pack made of scientists and doctors with a variety of specialization relating vaccines before the meeting. Fda provides the committee with its analysis and they also make that analysis of the public So i asked. Bruce gallon president of global immunization at sabin vaccine institute. What he made of the analysis of the johnson and johnson vaccine. I didn't see anything in it. That i would think is going to be a show stopper for packed. Wanna recommend that. Fda act on so gallon is predicting the ver- pack will give the vaccine a thumbs up. How many doses. Johnson and johnson have ready to ship out. Well not as many as people had hoped a year ago when started trying to make these vaccines they all said. All we're gonna do this at risk manufacturing which means we're going to start making vaccine before they even knew it was going to be authorized even if it worked. And then they'd throw away if it didn't work and the government gave the money to do this but even with that company's still don't have the kind of inventory. The country needs in the case of johnson. Johnson they have about four million doses ready to go out the door and expect to have twenty million by the end of march and one hundred million by the end of june and remember. This is a one dose vaccine so one hundred million doses is one hundred million people vaccinated which is very big. Deal leslie and briefly. What is the timeline here. When the fda issued the emergency use authorization it could be any minute. I mean they knew it right after the meeting. They could do it tomorrow. That could do it in a few days. It'll be soon. I think if the committee gives a thumbs
FDA says single-dose shot from J&J prevents severe COVID
"The food and drug administration analysis finds Johnson and Johnson's single dose vaccine offers strong protection against severe covert nineteen the report confirms that overall the vaccine is about sixty six percent effective at preventing moderate to severe illness from covert nineteen FDA advisory board member Dr Paul Offit you wanted to keep you out of the hospital added the intensive care unit and execute and and certainly all the vaccines buys Russian drug acts in the past and Johnson thank you to do exactly that that's what you want I often ask people shouldn't be dissuaded if the Madura and Pfizer shocks appear more effective in trials it's always subtle differences in the way that those trials are done it may make the difference is that I think you see here but that aren't necessarily relevant when she got in the real world the FDA is expected to make a final decision on emergency use of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine within days Ben Thomas Washington
Episode 21: Noema, Basimglurant and a New Clinical Trial for Seizures in TSC - burst 2
"New partner of the s lions. Why have we started working with no ema. Thanks dan so what we realized very early on is that no ema is truly patient centric and what we mean by that is. They're really focused on having a positive impact for the individuals so they sought collaboration with the us alliance and people living with tse very early in the development process and so we connected when they started to design their clinical program. Not afterwards they invited. Tse scientific experts to their advisory board. They've proactively engaged with tse families. And you know. In that advisory board a contribution from a parent who was invited to the board was considered equally valid as important as those of the attending scientists clinicians and drug developer's synonymous collaborative approach focusing on the needs of individuals with tse aligns. Very well with the us. Alliances goals to provide early diagnosis and offer better treatment so that those living can truly live their lives to their full potential and now that new is getting ready to launch this clinical trial. What are the next steps. So new emas clinical study with their negative.

Where Covid-19 vaccinations stand in the U.S.
"Weekend. Let's talk to Dr Jeffrey Copan. Now with the top medical news. He is the chief medical officer at Northwestern Medicine. Lake Forest Hospital, Doctor Copan. How you doing? By the end of Good afternoon. Good after you knew into the listeners on this beautiful, snowy day. I know you got appreciate it, don't you? And then, then it gets called super cold. I don't know if I appreciate that as much doctor Copan, but that's the way just that's what we have to deal with. Hey, I want to ask you about the vaccines in general get a lot of things to get to, But I just sort of, you know, I feel like that's top of mind for so many people getting the vaccine and I wonder sort of big picture. If you could just kind of give us your view. It seems we have to and distribution and others could be in the pipeline pretty soon. Just where are we right now? Yeah, I thought we wish we were way had more the quantity of vaccines that were available so we can move faster and get more jabs into people's arms. But it is what it is. We know that there's more coming. From the federal government s. Oh, that will be good. That will be helpful. And we also know that Mo Derna incisor had been able to pick up the pace of there. Manufacturers, So we should be seen Morva vaccine coming from those two companies over the next month or so, so that would be helpful. Then we fully expect the Johnson and Johnson will be bringing its data from its faith retrial. To FDA that should happen any day. It will then take f d a couple of weeks. To do its analysis. Then there's an independent advisory board that will look at the data and make its recommendation to FDA and our hope is by the end of this month. Johnson and Johnson's vaccine will be Proof from emergency use, and we'll start to get Johnson and Johnson's vaccine into use in the United States, and there's several million doses that apparently is ready to go. Once they get there, okay, and they're picking up the pace of their manufacturer is well. AstraZeneca, which has been its vaccine is the mainstay of what's been used in Britain. That data in its you ask trial should be coming to FDA shortly as well. So hopefully we'll have AstraZeneca in the United States Per happened, perhaps in March. And then there's also the number of that vaccine that hopefully will be seen that data pretty rapidly to So there's a bunch of new vaccines that should be giving into the pipeline within the next month or so, maybe a little bit longer, so there's a lot more coming. So all that's good news. It is good news, and it's not soon enough, but but we have to be patient. And it does seem as if how fortunate are we right that we have this many vaccines developed in record time and making it out. Folks, right? We just It's something. Yeah, I mean, really, you know, we we've talked about this before right that it's just It's incredible what the scientific community and the vaccine industry's been able to do. Get vaccines out to us this quickly. You know, we're coming up to the Anniversary next month of the first cases in the United States, and we're already giving vaccines. I mean, we now I mean, think about this good news. There are no more Americans. With gotten at least one dose of covert 19 vaccine, then his tested positive. Covert 19. That's a great great threshold that we just passed and I was so happy to see that obviously, they're more people who's had covert infections and have tested positive. But the fact that we now control that we've had more people getting at least one dose that is tested positive. That's a great place and that should make us all feel good that we're on our way.

Biden Faults Trump for Slow Vaccine Rollout, Pledges Faster Pace
"Just a few weeks ago. The trump administration said it would be able to vaccinate twenty million people by the end of the year so far two point one million people have been vaccinated. Just ten percent of what was projected. Ten percent of what people were told they could reasonably expect now to be fair. There is likely some lag time between when a shot goes into the arm. And when the cdc is able to report it so that we can tell you about it but eighteen million people worth of lag. Time is unlikely. The trump administration's operation warp speed released a statement today to explain the slow vaccine. Rollout it they promised to distribute twenty million first doses by next week then explained quote. These doses are being distributed at states direction to the american people as quickly as are available and releasable and the rapid availability and distribution of so many doses with twenty million first doses allocated for distribution. Just eighteen days after the first vaccine was granted emergency. Utah's use authorization is a testament to the success of operation warp speed and quote president-elect biden had this to say today about the quote unquote success of trump's operation warp speed trump administration's plan is to be vaccines as falling behind far behind. We're grateful to the companies. The doctors scientists researchers the clinical trial participants an operation warp speed for developing the vaccines quickly. But as i long feared and warrant the effort to distribute it administer. The vaccine is not progressing as it should the pace of vaccine the vaccination program is moving now as if you continue to exist now it's going to take years not months to vaccinate the american people. I've laid out three challenges at our first hundred days. One of them is ensuring that one hundred million shots have been administered by the end of the first hundred days. Congress provides the funding. We'd be able to meet this. Incredible goal would take ramping up five to six times. The current pace to one million shots. Today this'll take more time than anyone would like. And more time than the promises from the trump administration have suggested joining us. Now is dr rick. Bright he's a member president-elect biden's corona virus advisory board and a former top vaccine expert at the department of health and human services bright. Good to see you. Thank you for being here. Good st ali. Thank you for having me. Let me first ask you about this new strain that we found in colorado this if this twenty year old man who's got it didn't travel anywhere. I guess we can assume and people like you know enough to assume that it's probably already here in the of people like me. You don't really understand you know very well vaccines and viruses. The idea that this is more contagious and infectious doesn't seem as bad as if it were more deadly but folks who understand the say that it actually is. It's worse that it's more contagious. More infectious Because of the exponential nature of how viruses spread in our society. While you hit a lot of great orients. I mean first of all we expect viruses to change. We expect viruses mutate especially once they start Circulating more broadly among different people in such. So it's not a surprise as we find different variants of the buyers the sars virus appearing. Of course we want to monitor those very closely. We don't wanna cause alarm. We wanna take it seriously. And when we find that the virus has changed in properties like this is more contagious Also checked more carefully to know if it does cause more severe disease and if it does do anything to evade the vaccine or the therapeutics. Most of those data are still not available. Scientists are working really hard to get that information but we do have a pretty good indication that it is spreading more easily meaning. More people can get infected with his virus neces- concern however. That's a concern. We can manage. Because we know that wearing masks and social distancing and keep an art group size small etc. Washing your hands will still do everything to reduce the spread of the virus. Stay vigilant and i think we'll give the scientists time to learn more about the virus and epidemiologists infectious disease. Experts have been saying that to us since day one since february and march of last year. That that's that's still the best way. The good news is that we have no evidence that this new mutation of the virus won't react or won't be protected against by the vaccines in other words. The vaccines may still work. But now we've got the issue about a much slower rollout than we expected. What do you make of it well. It's very disappointing. Actually i mean a parole of the great work the scientists have done to make the vaccines in record time band to start producing the vaccines that the companies have really prioritize in the scientists in government had gotten a lot of work and now we see those vaccine doses sitting in freezers sitting in warehouses instead of being distributed in administered to people. You know vaccines in a freezer. We've said numerous times. Don't do anything to help. A person prevent infection. You have to administer those vaccines. We know it's difficult. We know a lot of war. Trump administration made big promises. I think they may have over. Sold their capabilities underestimated the complexity complexity. The challenge now those vaccine sitting in the need to get him out of the. So here's the thing called. Joe biden saying he wants one hundred million people in in the first one hundred days. That's a million a day. That's five to six times where we are right. Now what's going to change the las gonna change first of all we're going to get a handle on how those vaccine to being produced. We're gonna use whatever authorities possible president-elect biden will use whatever authorities are possible and available to him to ramp up production of those vaccines. We have more vaccine available. The biden campaign is also the biden administration to work more closely with the state's in partnerships is not going to be a hand off in good luck. It will be a partnership is present biden said. Today we're all in this together so we're not gonna lately the states alone and had them figure it out on their own. We're going to walk. This grew all the way to the end with educational programs in all communities and make sure the vaccine is getting to those hard to reach communities in people who are black and let lat next end at native americans who are really hit hardest from this virus. We wanna make sure that vaccines are reaching them. So the biden administration is going to move heaven and earth to get the vaccine to the people as quickly as possible.
As Americans start to receive Moderna vaccine, questions arise about a new COVID-19 strain
"Tonight. The cdc says this corona virus variant this new strain found circulating in the uk could already indeed be circulating in our country. Undetected pfizer. Says it's highly likely that its vaccine effective against the new strain. It'll take roughly two weeks to know for sure but the company says it could produce a new vaccine to match the new strain in six weeks. Well for more we welcome back to our broadcast dr. Selene ghandour clinical assistant professor of medicine and infectious disease at the nyu still of medicine in bellevue hospital in new york. She was recently named to the president-elect's corona virus advisory board a doctor gander. First of all. It's great to have you back. Second what is your level of concern on this new strain. And what's the truth about. Existing testing will the testing. We have if you're lucky enough to get one. Expose it well brian. There's a lot that we still don't know about this variant. But i do think that we need to take this very seriously as a potential new threat We don't know if this new variant is in fact more transmissible we think it may be based on modeling that we don't have concrete data on that yet we don't know if this new variant could be more deadly most of those who have been infected with it in the uk so far has been on the younger side and they tend to have milder cases of coronavirus to begin with. So it's a little hard to say whether there's going to be a significant difference in severity of illness and finally we don't know for sure. If the vaccines that have been developed by pfizer by madonna and others will protect against this new variant. We think they probably will. But if there are further mutations that accumulate in these variance where the change even more. It is possible. They could evade the vaccines we've developed. Thus far i heard someone say today. We can try to use the defense production. Act to make more vaccine to keep the pipeline full of pp which just don't know how to make any more doctors and nurses a personnel staffing as becoming the issue. We have ground them all down between spikes of this disease. What are we going to do in these hospitals these regions that are running above full. Tilt we we really can't defense production act our way out of this one. You can't manufacture doctors and nurses and while you can play around the margins by promoting medical students to first year residents or trying to bring people out of retirement. That's not gonna make a huge dent in this what you really need to do. It's a supply and demand problem right and we have a major demand across the country. What is driving that is transmission and really the only way to get ourselves out of. This situation is to flatten the curve. It's what we've been talking about for months. Now which is reduced the number of cases so that health care systems. Doctors nurses can cope with the number of patients that are being asked to care for. Where do you come down on shot shaming. We have a report later in our broadcast uses as an example thirty one year old member of congress from new york in perfect health. Got her inoculation Before doctors and nurses across the country some of them who are begging for there's and putting hands on patients every day. How should people view these lines and the notion of cutting in line. I think when you have enough an elected official who steps up and wants to get vaccinated. I do think there is very important symbolic value in that to show the american people that they trust the process by which this vaccine was developed and you factored approved by the fda and so i think the value of that messaging is worth it for. Somebody like that to be back. Stated early dr selene gander. Thanks for your work. Thank you very much for agreeing to come on and take our questions. We always appreciate having you. Thank you very

But i've got my relief hat and it's at palm trees and i just i really feel like we can benefit from taking our brain to the beach even when our bodies stuck at home are second office and there's some strategies you can talk about a little bit later about how Do that so. I'm background my history really. I got into this. Because i had to to survive. I was i was misdiagnosed. Has a child A lot so around the age of ten started having debilitating headaches and stomach aches and panic attacks and panic. Attacks were so extreme.

Trump Administration Passed on Chance to Secure More of Pfizer Vaccine
"Tonight. The new york times reports trump administration officials past one fighter offered in late summer to sell the us government additional doses of its covid nineteen vaccines now. Pfizer may not be able to provide more of its vaccine to the united states until next june because of its commitments to other countries in a news conference today with new york governor andrew. Cuomo doctor and chief who will serve as joe biden's chief medical advisor on the nineteen said this when you have seventy five eighty percent of the people vaccinated. You have an umbrella of protection over the community that the level of community spread will be really really very low. The virus will not have any place to go when that happens. Governor is going to be entirely dependent upon how well we do. How will i do you do your health officials in getting the message out of why it's so important for people to get vaccinated because it fifty percent of the people get vaccinated then. We don't have that that umbrella of immunity over us journalist now zurich bright. He's a member of the president. Elects corona virus advisory board. Thank you very much for joining us. Really appreciate it. You've gone from being a trump administration. Whistleblower saying that the trump administration was not taking the coronavirus pandemic seriously enough to now being an advisor to the incoming president. I wanna get your reaction to this new york times report tonight that the trump administration was offered more of the pfizer vaccine which is not very close to being approved here Turned it down and now won't be able to get more until the summer possibly at the earliest lawrence. Thanks for having me on tonight. The news is really concerning as you might imagine and we are still looking into that now. We're assessing to see what actually has been ordered and what still needs to happen to ensure that we have enough vaccine doses for all americans as quickly as possible. This highlights something. I've been talking about for many months as a vaccine expert. Making vaccines is very complicated. It's a very complex process. It takes time to make the vaccine to evaluate the vaccines and then we have to ecorse review the vaccines. The fda will be doing on thursday for their safety and how well they work and then the really hard work starts and distributing those vaccines and getting them out and to healthcare centers in the hospitals and community so people can be vaccinated so we have a lot of work ahead of us and one of the greatest concerns. I have is you heard. Dr fauci share at the same time. If we don't have enough maxine soon enough to create that level of immunity in our community there were going to be faced with dealing with this pandemic and the consequences of the pandemic for much longer. Listen to more of what. Dr fauci had to say today. More people going travel over christmas if they're going to have more of those family and friends gatherings that you accurately said or an issue so if those two things happen and we don't mitigate well we don't listen to the public health measures that we need to follow that we could start to see sings really get bad in the middle of january for state or city that is facing similar problems without substantial mitigation. The middle of january can be a really dark time for us. Do you see that. Same vision of the middle of january. Dr fauci sees getting worse every day. Unfortunately we are in the middle and the dark winter that we project it we would be at if we didn't take those public health measures earlier in the year if our government didn't lead by example and and really encouraged people to follow the public health guidelines. I wearing masks avoiding crowds. That didn't happen over the last several months. We are now in what i described in may as what would be the dark winter in modern history and we are now in the and december and is likely to get much worse. I do want to say though that many people are wearing their face mask. And many people are following the public health guidelines and social distancing and actually reports. I saw just in the last week said even more people are starting to wear their masks regularly when they leave their home. That's very encouraging. And i'm very very grateful for those people who are following those guidelines. We do need to get many more people to do that though. We need to have about ninety five percent of the population wearing your face mask. Every time he leaves the house outside and inside now and keep in out of crowds and keeping away from others in small groups as much as possible. That is how we're going to control the spread of this virus until we do have sufficient vaccine available to provide that community protection that we need so desperately. When we see dr fauci appearing with governor cuomo that seems like A certain kind of concession by donald trump that would be unimaginable Donald trump had been reelected. While i can say is that we need leadership now and i'm so glad that we have a president elect biden and vice president-elect harris coming into office. I thought you see. I think you saw the news today announcing the nominee for hhs secretary and a whole group of scientists coming into lead hhs. So i'm convinced now. We have leadership coming in sciences back. And we're going to get a hold of this virus we're going to control. The pandemic ended athlete. Come in in january
"advisory board" Discussed on Habits and Hustle
"All right okay. So we have. It's in hassles back doing in person. You're my first. Well i wondered you are. You should be honored. We have dr michael bruce. He is otherwise aka known as the sleep. Dr thank you who comes with a plethora of amazing information on how it could have a better night's sleep and how sleep really affects everything about us. And i said we're we're live. We're not this is like it's kind of awkward. Or because i feel like this is i'm not used to him so used to looking at someone on soon that this kind of is a very pleasant yea so thank you for being habits and hustle and thank you to be my first impression gas. It is absolutely my pleasure to be here you know. I love being on habits and hustle. I've been on at once before and you are my hustle queen so i am absolutely down for being here and having some fun. Well thank you first of all episode that the first episode of your. what am i first episodes. Ever there you go and it did so well. People really people are really fascinating fascinated with sleep and it's one of those weird things though. It's like it's kind of a mystery to everybody. You know people always like like if i go to a cocktail party and they find a sleep specialist. My wife like rolls her eyes and walks to the bar. You know 'cause she's like this is going to be forever with the questions right and says that question question question but i think that's because so many people have never talked to somebody about sleep. That really knows a lot about sleep. I mean let's be fair if you went to see asleep doctor. It's probably because you had a possible. Diagnosis like apnea narcolepsy or something like that. But for people who have like the everyday questions people who want to train and learn how to sleep better to train bender or sleep better to live better. There really aren't a whole lot of places to go to learn about that stuff. So that's why i'm stoked habits hustle because we can teach people that information right here. Oh my god. You're so great. You're so great at those sound bites awesome. That's what i love about you. So let me say that..

"12 longer shift. That You and you do what you're supposed to be doing then. It shouldn't matter who's sitting downtown with on any sort of advisory board. Hey, I I get it, You know, But we all have that We've all had. You know, we all had to do no matter what line of work we do. We've We've all been in positions the majority of us when sort of quote unquote Big air quotes, consultants come in. And you kind of take a step back a little bit because there's that knee jerk reaction. You're kind of like, why I gotta go. I do my job well, and for those in the L A P d who do do their job? Well, you know, they're like we got this, but Your point. Given the current climate, I can see why some members of the Metro Council just kind of want to make sure everything's on the up and up. Do we have any idea when this could be resolved? They've called the special meeting for next week. Our earliest they're planning a special meeting for next week. I don't know if it's actually been put on the calendar. Yet or not, but, uh, it could be out of the committee next week if that special meeting goes well. And then because this is a committee that he would have to go to the full Council. Yes, um It doesn't have to have an overwhelming majority to get out of that committee. When we saw the F O P contract got out of the committee by one vote, it went to the full council on the Full Council passed it. So it could have a very contentious hearing and clear by one vote. And still have a chance for success in front of the folk Council. Okay, Well, we'll continue to follow. No doubt about it will And then a sweet if we see any changes will bring along to you.

"Is on the advisory board of black voices from the discounted with merry Walter good morning joining us now Roy Rodman he's the owner of Rodman's discount food and drug store he's second generation owner of Rodman's family owned business right thank you for joining us thanks for having me on your cell you know Rodman's right around the corner from the radio station so you probably have seen all of our faces at some point in time working there if you're in your store you wrote an op ed in USA today as a small business owner and your store in in the Bethesda the northern Chevy Chase area of DC was was looted and they came specifically to that area just to lose the high end stores and somehow your store as well I guess be because they they saw discount drugs and so they they thought that they were you know going to really clean up in there what has this done and I I think the looting and I correct me if I'm wrong the looting probably had more of a mental impact yes it had a financial impact but mentally how does that affect you as a business owner well it certainly feels like a violation anyone who have their house ransacked door broken into can understand one of the motional emotional involve you you get with something like that yeah so it didn't feel good at all our customers were very effective and support of of a of us after that breach I bet yeah I know your beloved your beloved store Rodman's discount food and drug out Roy what was the economic impact how badly did this for you well they were not the young fellows who broke the window came in the store we're not in the store all that long and we returned the call on hold to get you to shower after working a few hours in the morning and I noticed that the window in the front was broke and never before has anyone broken the front window and run going into our store to steal or loot it does this is the first I thought so many police cars going up and down Wisconsin Avenue but well this is great will be able to get some help but they were booked in at assignments and we're not able to come visit us or help us so we had to board up for our windows ourselves and take care of take care of securing the Yemen the building so what's the bottom line for you as far as the looting goes you were probably already suffering because of the pandemic but what did the looting due to you financially well first I want to tell you that we weren't suffering because we both brought in a lot of items to replace the missing thing and we we have our nimble and can turn on a dime with getting a hold of different distributors to fill gaps that goes from the big box stores haven't been able to do and we have a very loyal clientele yes they were all so supportive and held for us and then that was very nice there are sales have been very strong from from the time the pandemic pandemic was declared so we've we've done well in in in terms of sales and we've also went to online service Dr mentioned one line at G. mail dot com and we do curbside service for those who are uncomfortable coming into the store yes during the pandemic but since the looting the looting took place at on on may thirty first have you been able to recover in terms of the damage and get your store restocked and back up and running well we were open the next morning we did not miss an hour of skill we were able to sweep up and clean up the broken showcases for our watch repairman he he's a a lease department in our store and he was hit pretty badly but we help him get back up luckily he had insurance we had insurance we were broken into as well and our pharmacy as well the young people that they jumped through the window bash the door and got into the pharmacy was interesting to see that the items that they stole from the pharmacy works I relate medication so they didn't really know what they were dealing with good news for us and now I'm listener overweight and they might even overweight trying to lose weight I I can't imagine why you would take that stuff doesn't make any sense whatsoever well I don't think they knew they weren't so smart now where they call I mean I'm sure it was did anyone ever get caught who eluded your store I was told that week we gave a video to the police officers and I believe that they went down the street and in Tenleytown and I went and looted whole foods and target and I believe they were caught I'm not sure there was any prosecution or was it just a short visit that they may have had behind bars and and not very long wow it would there be any way if they did catch a these people could you or would there be an Avenue for you to press charges if the if they the cops chose not to or the or the prosecutor chose not to well I believe that it will stand down for the police officers that they were told not to to make arrests though they did retain some of the young looters for a short period of time okay wait so is rife with fraud is insane so it's a night of looting on may thirty first to your store gets hat you see cops driving up and down the street emergency lights on everywhere no cop comes to your business.

B. I. in the I. N. S. wanted to deport him the state department said now he cannot be deported he knows too much well that was this before or after he went back to China for their space program before he went back to China the source so he sold actually he we we ended up getting rid of the guy exactly and and then the wife got the fact that the the United States got rid of him was that he was swapped for people with seven teams American P. O. W.'s that was captured during the Korean War why do we claim he was a spy here right so it was a flop Melfi dorm actually arrange for the fall where he said well we'll give you these captured American servicemen will give you seventeen of them when you give us back a doctor should and so president Eisenhower agreed and said that that's what happened so he went back nine fifty five and he won't even received a hero's welcome in China okay so they didn't know ramifications for him going back to China they didn't put it away in the gulag or anything like that the exact opposite he was he was welcomed as a hero he was walking with the man who is he what you know kind of like who reached the summit of the call well maybe he was a spy Michael well you know that's always being question many have off the main people who knew him because he could you could remember he he was a he I went to the United States in nineteen of all the nine fifty six under a box of rebellion under the national government for the Communist Party didn't exist at that point a mole was just the kind of like a which is the movement so he went there under a nationalist call the ship and it was only in forty nine that the communists had to pass laws but you know that's the question you don't want to use body won't be something that is being kind of dreamed up by the deep state global focal accident wasn't like going swimming these are you know really important questions because this guy truly in love everything about America's most today he could feel that the Air Force is developing the secret space program based on these flying forces that have been captured from **** Germany and from its official visitors that he was part of the team that that was the blueprint for the Air Force to develop the secret space program he was deported to China that's crazy and he developed a rocketry program exactly it first thing he did when he went to China in nineteen fifty five by the nineteen fifty six he sets up the fifth academy start trading scientists and engineers you could have a single rock program that gets has an agreement which is in agreement with the Soviet Union and then before you know it China in the nineteen sixties is starting to test this dumb thing this technical well it was either a spire they made him work with the U. gun pointed at his head well well I I think I think they truly welcome to my think they they understood that this is a man who had been you millions of bodies but in the way that he had he had the he had been personally flooded and he had a he had a grudge against him but you don't think it's a this favored him for for selecting the west over China well no no not at all because of me he went there in the nineteen thirties there were a lot of so was it is it like you said it was before the revolution exactly so he went there is you know under the national government and so they welcomed chan and and they were kind of your several thousand other very highly trained technicians engineers that has done very well in the United States that will welcome back into China the Chinese the Chinese one of all these people come back because of the after the revolution money forty nine China was just an agrarian state that we need to have no real military all of the all of the most advanced by discerning gin is they they they fled with Chiang kai shek both of those probably won't throw up for China really needed help and in fact I encourage all of these with the trade scientists to come back to China and so it was a program to get them to come back in and I will many of them will welcome back the heroes and and throughout the sixties and seventies chain with that knowledge there's a hero of the Chinese people's Republic see all the Iranians who came to the United States after the shock collapsed I don't think the Iranians the government there would welcome them back if they elected to go back to Randy you right yeah that'll be suspected of

"Hey there this is Kevin. I have put together a of goals for twenty twenty for me personally. We also have business goals which all discuss but today. It's one of folks on one goal and I'll do some other episodes on each of the goals and I'm GonNa do one of the big goals for me this year is I wanted to join an advisory board group Southern Link Entrepreneurs Organization which I talk about all the time. My partner is a member of that group. I love that group but also he's already and I know a lot of those guys that are in it and girls that are in it so I wanted to find something different and so I started looking around in different master minds in different groups and actually funny enough. Eric and I joined the Group A group together and it's a mastermind group for digital marketing agencies. Very specific now you might say well people your competitors well. There may be some some chance that we might run into each other but all the members are from around the country in the world. So there's no one actually local to us in the group but we are literally put into a group of people that do three to twenty million dollars a year and run a agency like us and so we're on it three million yet. We're only at two million to now we're hanging out with people that are beyond us and we had to ask specifically to be in this other group because really they were gonNA put us into the like one to two million but we said hey we want to. We want to hang out with people that are doing better than us and so we can learn and so we just joined the group recently. We've only had one. I think there's a slack channel and actually is Jason so Jason Swank. If you're listening thank you so much we're happy to be part of the group and the masterminds called digital agency elite so Jason's been in the business for a long time He. He grew a did a digital agency and sold it for tens of millions. I believe I don't know the numbers. But he's very successful and now he teaches and trains other agencies to grow as well so the power of a mastermind. Like this is these guys know. Exactly what we're doing and have done it before and we can bounce ideas off them and they can give us five different ways we can do it and we can choose for ourselves. What's going to be best so it's really priceless. At this point we ought to try to leverage this group and take advantage of every opportunity offers. So I'll tell you about it more as we go actually going out to Colorado to Durango for a mastermind in person retreat. So it can be really cool as a lot of training and also a lot of cool activities paired up with some excited to share more about that look for a mastermind in your industry. I have a Klein this in dermatology and they have. He's part of a mastermind of other dermatology companies around the country. They don't compete because they don't cross you know territories another client of mine is in a mastermind for H. FAC so HVAC. They have a mastermind of these guys. I and girls around the country and they talk about business. So one of my goals was to join a mastermind or advisory group and check don part of the group very excited about it so look for masterminds in your niche in your industry. I'm sure they're out there. And if not maybe you should start one. You need to be part of a group like this in sometimes multiple groups like this so go out there. See what's available..

"For travel advisory board member Hey dean thank you so much for joining us today Hey Stacy great to be with you again thanks so much for the opportunity you know I was so excited to speak to you about we have a couple things I first just want to quickly let's go over why you're a part of the advisory board for blacks voices for trump what made you say yes to that and and why do you feel like you have to support the president does go out of his reelection effort we appreciate that states I think that you know myself like I think a growing number of minorities around the country recognize over the last three years that there's something that's been different politically in Washington DC you're back in twenty sixteen I was a little bit skeptical you know at the time candidate trump didn't really have a track record as an elected official but he did make a statement and that was basically to black America Hey look what do you have to lose and I feel like that over the last several years we can basically point to the fact that we have low unemployment within the African American community a lot of folks that I know have family members that have come home for the holidays because of the first step back to the president signed we have opportunities owns that he's pushed so there's so many things that this president has done that is really made me say Hey look even though in twenty sixteen I might have been skeptical I think that he's done a good job in public policy particularly domestic policy that is really help black Americans so that do you that leads us to this story over a roll call and I will I was reading it and thinking you know wow this is pretty interesting but also it it it it points to something like a messaging issue that we might have going forward people who would like to see the president reelected the title of the piece is will Democrats have a kind of a problem in twenty twenty that's written by Clive McGrady and he followed around a couple of strategists and he went to barber shops and places in the DC metro area and I was there present kind of reporting listening to black voters in these kind of you know very relaxed settings talking about what what propelled them to vote for the president or what is the most important issue can you talk a little bit about that peace and and what you thought about it yeah well as as one you know to our organization that does grassroots activism around the country I mean last election cycle we knocked on you know hundreds of thousands of doors particularly in urban communities and so what I've read and that he is actually what we have seen on the ground and that is after surveying thousands of black Americans there are several things that they are looking for one economic opportunity to criminal justice reform was really important and three are strengthening the black family and so when I read that piece I saw that essentially the Democratic Party is having I think a struggle because those are some of the things that they're not really addressing now obviously most black Americans and supported democratic candidates but I think that when you have somebody as visible as the Kanye west who actually speaks to some of these issues I think that he goes by has some of the traditional media outlets and more more black Americans I think are listening to some of the things that he has said particularly as one who has supported the president so speaking as a Reverend yourself and you know you've you've you've done so much work in the black community and this is not this is not some you know thirty three thousand foot view you're taking your speaking from boots on the ground not just door knocking but work died in the community and to see Kanye west make this miraculous transformation which a lot of people really were panting and saying negative things about in the beginning and I I personally think it's a wonderful thing if he's found Jesus Christ and is truly changing his life around for the better but he's taking it a step further than that by evangelizing through his music and really making this it's like this it's an outreach effort on his part to try to get other people to rethink their one party allegiance do you think it's going to be as momentous as Sam R. fearing on that on the democratic side well I think all we need to do is to look back at last month polling numbers where we saw double you know pulling groups that song I think route thirty four thirty five percent approval rating from black Americans for president trump I think that the Democratic Party is kind of recognizing a little bit of that but again when you have new voices emerging voices that are farming the work that this president has done I believe that you called anybody concerned we haven't seen black Americans nationally come out and support democratic candidates the way that they did with Barack Obama and I think that's something that the that the article pointed out so they are trying to as they stated in the article go after some of these voters who don't usually or don't always show up so I think that they have a real challenge on the hand particularly when there are more emerging voices that are speaking to a lot of the great things that this president has done particularly for black Americans but even more specifically those of us in the state community so so I I'm looking at an S. as we're closing out the interview here and thank you so much for joining us Robert Nelson I as as we're looking ahead at at messaging specifically Republican Party messaging do you think there's a certain direction that messaging should take to speak to this constituency group of Americans who have traditionally why message to a group that always votes for one party it's almost as if they're locked in into a pattern that can't be broken but clearly president trump has broken that paradigm black voters can actually vote for anyone that they want their just as free as any other American so how do you message that yeah I think it comes from doing what we have done and that's being on the ground the wait we got the message about criminal justice reform being important the way that we got the message about African Americans expressing their desire to see the black family strength and it was because we surveyed and we went into those communities whether it's churches barber shop I think that those are the things that the Republican Party has not typically done in the past you've listened to those people and I feel like that when you have states like Michigan or Pennsylvania where we worked really hard the last election cycle those states have significant numbers of African Americans and when you go into those places you find that the message of faith the message of our criminal justice reform and economic opportunity and I would also say education those things do resonate but I think that more than just a message it's also having the right messengers to take those messages into those communities perfect you know that was a pinpoint accurate ending their I appreciate you I can do to tell you do a lot of radio Reverend D. Nelson chairman of the Douglas institute at leadership institute and also black voices for trump advisory board member thank you Sir thank you for your time today thanks a lot all right good to talk to you we're gonna commercial now when we get back I'll have more for you stay.

We ended up locking on really one division of rose in order to kind of get the bar up and running and to see what we could do and this was around diabetic care. So if you are type one or type two diabetic, the the role that rose place to for a lot of people is through testing of your blood disease. What year blood glucose to know, whether or not you need to take insulin or some other kind of medicine. In this area that we particularly focused on was the explosion of people being diagnosed with type two diabetes type one diabetes means, you know, things like you're paying Chris's failed. Type two diabetic is what we would call before to lifestyle meeting. Most people type type x are morbidly obese. The foods. They eat contribute to an increase in their book. Because levels of cetera and Roche was focused on the whole thing around test strips..

"And that you can have all even be an advisory board. And if it's a group of people that the leader or the founder respects, they will have a big influence the Facebook board has some amazing people on it. And again, not to speculate. What's going on in that discussion? But I believe that boards as a body there. This is how this is how they think we support our CEO until we don't and they're always asking. So within any situation aboard is always asking the question. How do we feel about what's going on? And then exercising influence to the best of their ability. And if they do not feel that they have their advice being taken or their council than that can resign. They don't I mean, a lot of people do feel a lot of tech boards are toothless like around tesla and SEC. Stuff, and the, you know, obviously Elon's a great leader in many ways. But some of the stuff he did was really problematic around the specially around the comments relating to stock. And then which I think a lot of other CEO's would have gotten a lot more trouble. It's really fascinating if the CEO of I don't know any company would have done that. I think there'd be a lot more help pay in an interesting way. So and the boards would have acted differently. Same thing at Facebook. Most people feel like they have almost no power to do anything. And we don't know exactly what's happening. But most people feel they don't have any look again. I don't want to speak beyond my area of inside or or what what is appropriate. But I actually believe that companies are either wired to try and be positive sources or not and in well companies and then boards can operate to the best of their ability within within that context. I I don't think this controversial. And I'm not just saying this. But I actually genuinely believed that the impetus Facebook is good. They're good people trying to do good things. Obviously, there's a lot that needs to happen. I really believe that strongly, and I will tell you something about Mark that I've I haven't met him many times I've done on worked. But there is something that I think is quite instructive back in two thousand and seven I had the opportunities like privilege to work with Mark and Cheryl to recruit chief financial officer for Facebook. And something that I think speaks volumes about their culture and to this day. So I met met with Mark. And we spent two hours, and he didn't know Spencer, Stuart to note, Jim Sicher, and he didn't know any of this stuff. And and, but he started the questions with and first part was like, okay. Well, who are you? And what has Spencer Stuart, and what's recruiting and all this very high level stuff? And then he just ask question in question. And question after the end of two hours based on his questions, he cut to such a level of insight about how things work, and he said, okay? So one final question. So so let me understand this. So if you working on multiple CFO assignments set a time, how do you adjudicate use that word, how do you do to Kate between a candidate that you'll show us at Facebook and someone else and that is incredibly sophisticated question about how to work with a executive search from Spencer Stuart and what he did over the time of meeting. All the candidates was really try and go to school, and what a world class CFO is like, and we ended up recruiting a wonderful guy named David men who had been the CFO Genentech who then and then took them public, and he has gone on to great things as a CEO Lear health. So that to me speaks volumes about his capability to ask questions and learn the open, and I from what I believe and hope it's the. The same impetus right now to get to the truth to get to the essence based on good and to figure out what needs to happen. So that's anyway. That's that's what I believe. I do think that the boards. They're going to be really always focused on. How can we help this organization? Do the right thing. Do you think they should be more?.

"The dean there is doing Washington state university, Spokane they're taking their first class amid students this fall, right? So just like this month they're coming to Spokane so had data Richard Smith, former co founder who's heading up the technology innovation group there at Washington state. I mean, they're in. He just tweeted the other day of hitter of the big wall stack of of ipads. You know, the whole the students are gonna come in. Boom. We don't have textbooks anymore kids as what? Get your ipads. Yeah. Oh, you know companies like what's happening at Phillips. I'm always astounded at the work that they're doing globally in healthcare organizations like UPN see in Pittsburgh, inter mountain in Salt Lake City. I mean, obviously the Kaiser systems doing some fantastic work. I mean, there's just so much good happening right now. I mean like said you had Jamie on from John Edwards from cloud break. Yes. All the work. They're doing I mean, I'm not gonna suck up to them too much in some of the advisory board. Disclaimer warning, but you know, I I like to so stuff there too. I like to socially with people who are passionate about what they're doing who are making a difference in the world in clawback is definitely one of those organizations. So there's so much good happy. I mean, look at what Shafi on med is doing over in London with for the audited reality for training purposes in the he was the first surgeon to do a live surgery using Snapchat.

So it's the risk-takers the innovators the people GST. I mean, there's a whole bunch of them. And I'm just happy to be it'd be a cheerleader for a lot of them into be able to witness what they're doing. So so we can focus on on legacy. We can focus on the stuff that doesn't work or we can put our energy into focusing. What is working and try to promote that and get that message out as much as possible. You know, Nick, what a great example of where focus goes that is where your reality is. And I'm a firm believer in that. And you know, I'll be honest like I feel like I was kind of going on the negative end there for a bit just looking at the things that we need to improve. And at the same time this conversation with you has been great because it really is important to also look at what's good and focus on the good. Good and the now versus what's bad. Don't be as simple, as what are these awesome med school students gonna do for our future with technologies of today? I mean, one of the things I remember they hammered into us at business goal was you know, everything had a swat analysis right streaks. Weaknesses opportunities threats business goal for me was back in the nineties. So that's still remember this is quite fantastic. But the part about the swot analysis was you'd have these teammates in order to get to the the end. It's always had to be about. Okay. Let's now make some recommendations in suggestions for solutions. That's really where the rubber hits the road on this thing. Give me recommendations since solutions for now we Bill in this one analysis..

"I have an outstanding guest for you today. His name is Mick Atkins. He's on the advisory board for cloud break health, where their focus is to humanize healthcare where we also had the c o Jamie. But the other thing that Nick does. And I think we'll be focusing on today is he is the founder of the pink socks movement. It's a tribe of makers doers that are looking to digitize healthcare. And so what I wanted to do is welcome him to the show and maybe expand on on that introduction. Nick, welcome Saul. It's great to be here, man. I'm really glad that you asked me to join you today. Thank you. Now, really, really. Appreciate it, Nick. And you know, what your name keeps popping up in the? As I've gotten started with this podcast. You name just keeps popping up. So you're you're definitely creating some waves out there. But it says you gotta talk to Nick, you gotta talk to Nick, I think all roads lead to Nick somehow. Well, I'll tell you saw I've been really fortunate to meet some awesome people all around the world see some really cool technology, and you know, this whole pink socks thing. We'll talk about this. It's a global tribe and have been able to meet some of the most outstanding amazing people who are doing really good things in the world. And a very very grateful to the universe for that. Hey, so Sydney, why why did you decide to get into the medical sector? Well, long time ago when I was graduated from grad the first job, I had was selling medical surgical supplies in Nashville, Tennessee, and it is, you know, did that for a few years in the individual decided to go back to school and fresh out of business school of my MBA. I went to work for the Vanderbilt health plans back in the day. And that's when HMO's were starting they were popular at that point that hidden unpopular. And so I had all this experience around the healthcare world in couple of jobs. I got in the payroll business in the next came back to the HR business in medical billing practice management software CEO of a couple of companies back in Nashville. So I knew I knew healthcare knew that world noodling go on new steel in space. So once you gravitate to something that you're you're in the groove with you to stick with it. That's what I did. That's awesome, man. And you definitely have done a lot in year. Experience speaks for it. What? Do you think today, you're at cloud break? But you've also done a lot of other things. What do you think today should be a topic on every medical leaders agenda? Well, obviously, telemedicine Telehealth, that's that's a given. And really, no telemedicine is nothing new. That's quite fantastic thing about it is it's almost it's hard to believe that we're still having to sell the concept that you can stay home. Inter Jamie, Panton sear doctor over video instead of having a fight traffic and go in and do that. I mean, the so many cases where a virtual visit just makes a lot of sense for everybody. But the doctor patient artificial intelligence, a huge right now VR AR MR so first rally augmented reality mixed rowdy. I think we're gonna see ton of that. I think the first piece that we're already seeing it play out pretty big as in med is in education and training. And I think we're going to say his son mash up of that with telemedicine in is so all of these things really fit together. They're not silo pieces. They've may seem that way right now. But the endgame of all of this is that is. All of those things are mashed together to four provide a really truly virtual on visit. Yeah. And so how does this fit into the perspective of the tribe is pink socks tribe? I really wanna spend some time here with you and give the listeners and appreciation for for what you guys are doing. And what the vision of the tribe is while you know, there's all walks of life all different companies are represented me patients. Doctors different tech specialties is really nonspecific, right?.
