"Guys welcome back to four. Is the podcast series. That gives you a clear view into the optometry world across canada and the us. We are your hosts. I'm dr amorous bill cou. I'm dr deepen car. hi i'm dr ravindran donna. And i'm dr. Alex kuhn so i am very excited for everyone to listen to our conversation today with doctor. Michelle mckenzie who isn't optometrist. From bolton ontario. I work alongside dr mckenzie the bolton optometry clinic and i asked her to come on our podcast to discuss symphonic phototherapy now sin tonics is not discussed very often in the regular optometry world but it is well known in the developmental and behavioral thomas world for its visual physical and even psychological benefits phototherapy or light. Therapy in general is applied in the medical world in so many different ways. Phototherapy is used on infants with jaundice to clear the billy rubin in their liver by using yellow wavelengths of light some healthcare professionals even prefer phototherapy instead of antipsychotic medications to treat seasonal affective disorder bipolar disorder major depressive disorder postpartum depression and to help regulate sleep cycles in patients with parkinson's and alzheimer's disease. We even use concentrated light therapy in our dry patients now to stimulate the trigeminal nerve and enhance the function of my bohmeian glance so with all of these various applications of phototherapy currently being used. Why is it that phototherapy for the eyes and the visual system is not popularly accepted. Now some of you listening to this may think while. I'm not really into be the envisioned therapy so this episode is not really for me while i want to challenge you all to think about. We're your practice is located. How far way of drive is your next. Bt clinic do your patients with concussion symptoms or chronic near points. Stress symptoms have limited access to be t sin. Tonics would be a great way to actually offer your patients something rather than nothing at all in your own practice. It takes minimal space in the office since you're mainly using filters and a light source and most of the patients therapy can be performed at home so have a listen to today's episode and check out the resources in the description box to learn more about symphonic phototherapy and how you can incorporate this into your own practice dr mckenzie. Thank you so much for making time this night to come on our podcast so right when we get started. Do you mind telling our listeners. A little bit about yourself a little bit about me. i don't know i how. What would you like to know. I was a little kid in the back of the class. Who wasn't doing very well because of vision problems and it wasn't until grade five. Figure it out. I really couldn't see and that made a huge friends.

"I'm always curious about this. And if you're a longtime listener of the show you know that frequently say. I never asked this question. I like to be just as surprised as you are an awfully not to surprised but excited. What's fat next summit for you. Alex and what might be a challenge or obstacle. You're now going to have to overcome to get to yet a new mountaintop. I have one major summit from a professional perspective and that is as yes. I am helping so many people in terms of leadership around the world. But i know personally that i've got this summit to make sure that when they type in leadership whether it's on google they ever go to the bookstore and look in the section of leadership. I need to make sure that success in some of the other things we teach leaders is there that it's readily available for anybody in any place in walks of this world so my next summit is to make sure that i am not only continuing to put the resources out there to make it available for as little as seven dollars in book up to obviously people wanna go much much deeper into it through our mentorship program but even more importantly there as a result i need to make sure on developing all the other archetypes of myself so that i can have team that allows me the time the space of mindset freedom necessary to be able to do just that you know alex our final and definitely trademark question is what legacy do you wanna leave one of my favorite exercises when when my first coach asked me. When i'm in my grave. What do i want people to remember ass and i want three things for people. Remember me yes. I want them to remers leader but more importantly i want the person who was compassionate and truly one of the mega difference for others. I wanna be a person that it was inspiring. That literally made people do things. They didn't think they were possible to do then. Finally i want people say. This guy was more driven than i've seen on his planet. Those of three legacy piece. I want an ultimate lead's gonna come down to making sure that we are transforming leaders into paradigm shifting leaders that i know our next generation needs. I love that. Allison and i really have enjoyed having you on the show. It's been exciting. I think this very important material. It's it's material that app in our seventh year.

"Around your leadership style. We're going to have the answers to all the questions that are coming up as well as the twenty four hour challenge and all the links to get a hold of and connect with alex. Coon especially want to thank you for showing up today. Because i don't really believe he showed up for. Jv or even alex. I think you showed up for yourself because you're ready to take another step forward and that's what the conscious mon our show is about. It's helping purpose driven conscious entrepreneurs business owners coaches who truly want to make a big impact with your life. And you wanna put more money in the bank. You wanna bring those two together and we're here to help you do that every step of the way. I want to thank all of our listeners. And friends are fans in pittsburgh and montreal. Thank you so much for listening to the conscious millionaire's show and now it's time for the conscious moeen or world expert questions and alex to start with mindset. What's the mindset you've developed that helps you discover your best business opportunities. I believe that the best mindset is the leader because the leader at the end of the day knows that it to be the leader. They wanna be. They've got to impact people and business truly is about impacting people serving people using your purpose to make other people's lives better to me that is the mindset that when i find myself doing my best work it's when i really live in that more and more and deeper so the leadership mindset and so let's shift to strategy what's a strategy that would help any entrepreneur business owner coach listening. Actually make more money and put more of that money in the bank. Yeah and obviously. We talked about success. Dna but the one strategy. i found. That's actually really important. In when it comes to actually growing your business is to simply turn down. How many pieces of your sales marketing you have to do. That are out of alignment to get to the final product or program that you're selling and so i found time and time again that the better the program the better the product that i make a less marketing and selling i have to do which ultimately will lead to less money spent on that side alternately. Creating a more profitable product and one that customers are happy to share with others. You know. I love that. Because if you're listening i bet you've done the same thing i've done. You've bought some programs and the marketing was great but unfortunately didn't put a lot of work into the product itself and then you get to the program and you're going. Wow this is disappointing and then your whole experience of that brand is so horrible that you're never buying anything else right so i i love that strategy to build..

"Same thing when i look at these four archetypes. It doesn't mean you can't be good in other areas. In fact a lot of the leaders i see are good in all areas. And that's actually where their challenges. The challenges that they can motivate. They can be an architect they can't about people and they also have some visionary skills but it's understanding. What have you trained yourself to be good in verses what you're naturally good at and understanding what you're naturally good at is going to help you build an organization that's going to be filtered around that it doesn't mean you can't develop these other four skills in fact it's one of the things i encourage us to continue developing scales but when it comes to structuring your business to have higher levels of flow you want to start with your primary are tied and then of course you're gonna always have a secondary one that you typically of trade in so often especially visionaries and i think i've mentioned this to you you're it's clear natural visionary but probably over the course of your living you've clearly developed at skill of being a developer working with people mentor people coaching people advising people listening to people and going through that work so naturally you're only going to get better at that particular skill so let's let's play this game. I'm curious of these four. I know it's not the visionary who when you think of a business you think of. Let's go to some traditional ways of you've got the ceo type person which hopefully is a visionary or you've got a little problem here But you also have manager types. You know who kind of plug in at different levels and loved to manage people are those more than motivators. The architects would type is that manager. Who's a re really good manager. A lot of times. I find really good. Managers now depends. Obviously what the goal of the organization is thumbing. Actually give you two specific ones one type of mandra. I think that is typically the be platt's manager and what i mean by plus does not that they are. They're worse than the a it. We're looking at gay hendricks just for a moment. So that would maybe be there kind of close to their excellence level. But they're in their genius level. Exactly exactly there and a lot of those managers tend to be developers and because a lot of times the manager. Bruce is more about making sure people get the stuff done on time making sure that held accountable etc there. Because obviously we've heard this time. There's a difference between manager and leader so very typical manager in today's business. World is typically much more of a time manager person so a b. plus person you typically see as devel- upper people like them they kind of get along. The team is cohesive. But also what you'll find. Is that team. Sometimes mrs deadline. They're little bit behind. Maybe they're little over budget. Okay but then you also see the manager who is an architect and that's the person sometimes. We're you see the person going teams a little bit like you know. They're not. The most cohesive grew maybe they're not the most aligned group but the always get stuff done on every single time and so the beauty of a lot like donis organization. Is it easy to identifiable of that. We need to work on their architects skills. If you have an architect we gotta work on the developer skills there just to make sure that that department works as well as possible..

"How does that person best operate and succeeded in building their business. This is the person we think of as the natural coach. This is the person who seems to really be good at asking. People questions in that person finding clarity finding answers that they were struggling to get them sows developers from a natural perspective whether they actually understand the skill or not are just literally able to get the best out of people not by forcing them not by pushing him. Not by trying to say you have to do this but literally by asking them questions that that people get higher levels of clarity and are able to move forward on their own with higher levels of intrinsic motivation so that would be the person who awakens other people were helps them discover things about themselves or helps them resolve problems by being able to look at it differently very much so the person i think of in the history when it comes to great leaders that we know of i think of john wooden john wooden called himself not a coach but a teacher and so he was the person who yes he loved to teach the skill sets etc but one of the things. He was really important if you notice his coaching style. And this is just going back to you know. Many many years when he was a basketball coaches he didn't say anything during games he would ask them questions. During practice nature the players knew how the answer themselves because he believed that he was going to be able to tell them what to do during the game. They had to figure answers after themselves. While in a game. And that's a very good example of a natural developer. So what about the architect. The architect is for many of us. If you describe yourself as entrepreneurs the architect is your dream leader and this is the person who when somebody comes to them with this big idea but they don't know how to actually get it they don't know how the put all the pieces together. What they're amazing is first and foremost coming up with the over arching type of how to actually get it to be successful and even more importantly they know how to put the right people in the right position at the right time. They have a natural skill of understand where people are good. Fits within the kaga actually building the vision so this would be the natural team leader in a in a company very much there and obviously use apple. It's example you know. We think of steve jobs a lot of people. See him as we'll talk about minute. The visionary saw on the future where we go and he also had steve wozniak and see what was neck was very important and being able to take all visionary the aspect that steve jobs had and be able to make it happen because he knew this person need to be there he knew what type of engineers he knew the status new the processing new all those things and there was an intuitive part..

"Alex alex welcome to the conscious millionaire. Show the i'm so fired up to be here. So thank you so much for having me on this incredible incredible podcasts. I'm curious because folks we're gonna be talking about leadership style and leadership as as a as a business owner. You know it's time. I don't care if you're the only person in your business it's time for you to start saying you're the ceo in your leader because leaders attract people not just because they're followers leaders attract people that want to be part of your movement. Want to be part of what you're doing that resonates with the story that you're telling so i know you've got four types of leadership styles. Why don't we just get those right out. And then we can go back and dig in. Because i think it's very curious and as you listened to these think about which am i and they were going to be giving a lot of pointers about how to use each the styles to win bigger and grow your business j. b. I love talking about success. Dna and that is what i believe is making sure that everybody finds their own unique leadership style and time and time again you have working with thousands of people we see these four are types and when you understand your art type of you're able to build a business that works with you. Ultimately creates higher levels of flow and those four types are the following. We have the developer. We have the architect. We have the motivator and we have the visionary and each one is very unique and has a very specific skill set whether it was from a genetic perspective board experienced perspective. So i'm curious. You're wearing a shirt folks that you probably can't see this but it says born leader and we were joking about that before we went to air so you because i think this is one of those questions. People ask our leaders born or our leaders developed. Which do you think it is. I love this question. It's actually what a favor questions they answer. Because i think we do have this. It's either the chicken or the egg is a leader. A leader made. And i believe the answer is actually both that you are born with a very unique specific style of leadership but at the same time i believe everybody needs to grow into that style needs to understand their style. These identify that style to truly become fulfilled a leap year that they really could be. And that's one of the reasons why we do find. These are types because when you do understand your art tight when you do understand what naturally comes easy to you. Alternately it becomes easier to everybody on this podcast. Listening here wants a..

Apps like Robinhood make investing easier. Maybe too easy.

Apps like Robinhood make investing easier. Maybe too easy.

"APPs like Robin Hood of Made Stock Market, investing easier, but at what cost from American public media this is Marketplace Tech Jack Stewart in Hollywood. Maybe. You're one of the ten million plus people who've set up an account on the trading APP. Robin Hood the company's been in the news recently as people start to take a critical look at its business model. Robin hoods the highest profile example of APPs that say they're increasing access to the stock market by making trades free. Critics say their game `fine trading with psychological nudges and push notifications, which encouraged frequent and potentially risky trades. There are few controls or limits for what could be inexperienced users in June. Twenty year old Alex, Kerns killed himself after he logged onto Robin Hood and saw what he thought was a negative seven hundred thirty thousand dollar balance Professor Vicki Bogan founder of Cornell University's Institute for Behavioral and household. Finance researches the psychology of investing. Being able to trade online is nothing new, but beyond just the. Marginal incremental convenience of having on your phone versus on your laptop. Something about some of these, APPS is that they're designed to encourage people to trade and to trade more. because. It's part of their business model. They make more money when people make more trades, and so you know when you make a trade, there's confetti in congratulations that are encouraging people to trade more, so it's beyond just the reduction in transaction 'cause it's also the way the APPS are structured to nudge people to participate more and to trade more. So I suspect what these platforms would argue is that they're just making it easier for people to access the stock market and build wealth in the way. The wealthy people have always been able to do. Is that a fair argument? Yeah, I'm very sympathetic to that argument. I actually on some level. I agree that it's always a good thing to give. Households have access to financial markets. You're exactly right in that. Participating in the stock market is. With a long term investment horizon is a way that people. Can and have been able to build wealth. But these ads cannot exist in an unregulated unchecked environment. What sort of protections would you like to see? There are a lot of things. But. The person that can Pinatubo aside as a result of seeing this negative balance was only twenty years old. And so this is a person that can't. Buy Alcohol and can trade options in a way that could get him in very serious financial leverage. And so in the same way there were some guidelines protections with the credit card act in two thousand nine limiting access for young adults with credit card to credit cards. I think we need to think about some of those types of protections as well. That's freaky Bogan. Cornell University after Alex Kuhn's death Robin Hood released a statement saying it might restrict more complicated trades from some customers with checks to make sure they know what they're risking with options trading in particular.

"So it shut us off to quit. We're taught don't challenge things feeling line so we're subconsciously being fed to question but unless you're asking the questions you don't learn grow well especially if you're not in that's probably the same thing we talked about. If you're not even asking yourself tough questions because we've all done that to say. Oh I WANNA lose weight zero. I WANNA have a business or I wanNA to have a better relationship right. You know we we say these things we want this. We want this want want this. But then do we ask the question? What do I need to change But why why do I too often? We get caught on on the we. Don't ask me why not goes for great leadership get out of the way and let the quite flow ask questions. All Socrates methods he had did was but it's amazing. How even still today? It's as much as I like. People Sony asked him. Point has history. Like what are your three favorite folks in every month? Every book I was like from the Forties Dritan. He's like Oh you're not into like a four hour workweek and I loved him various. Don't get me wrong I just. I think there's a lot of value that that are. Just you know old school is I guess. What the solid truth solid truth never goes out of style right. Iran is idea. Actually who was means so I know sign in obviously his book start with why has been obviously tremendous impact. Perfect Point Starr was why? Yeah is with Y. But Jim Rome was one of the first people were hurt from like as a whole page speech on it. I think it's a beautiful. It's just like you can take mazing value from our history and just repurposing were for people today but if you look at things endure through history. It's because perpetuates the story continue to be continued. There's another chapter. Sometimes you get done with that book when we do a lot of times when we find a book it's Great. Ill sit on the shelf for a while but when we come back to challenge things when we come back to refresh we pick it up and read it again received Yeah exactly there. Was We see a differently? We see a different angle. We see a different perspective. Because we're asking different questions. Yeah without a doubt and we are different people in a Lotta ways we run. We ask different questions. We've learned different things just like. I just read reread alchemist. That long ago. Rarely Ford's times and every time I come up with the difference different thought different feelings. Different ideas but life. So you're right and that's what's beautiful but books is like you can go watch a movie I always finest Big Rocky Fan. But you can go watch a movie and yeah there's movies you can go back to watch it over and over again but is is still kind of the same experience. Love books like actually readable. Read it again and you can also totally different like experience with. That's so true in a lot of things in life because depending on where your feed who planted her different angle. You looking for a different answer. You have a different perspective out hundred percent great you know and then ultimately we look back in the dots make sense. It connects you. We we get so busy on pushing forward. We don't take enough time to stop and look back at. What brought us there to move us. Forward our connect the DOTS analogy from point. So connect those dots. And we've got to that point. What is next for outs? Where do you move forward? What is the legacy Lee for your Sonya? I the there was a years ago. I went to Brennan Event and was this meditation that he took us through and I thought it makes every time I do. It makes me cry like babies. I cry on your podcast. Please forgive out wherever you are. It takes you back to when you were born in physically flying across at different points in your life and your yourself and I don't want to give your way country still doing it. There's a there's a long story short. You basically asked you questions you know the what did you want to look back life and what. It looks like really young and you know. I've always actually gone about very three very specific things time and time again. Like how is it that I want to show up each day? And it really actually boil down to this. You know beyond business beyond family be on my health goals. You know what I'm doing in number one WANNA show up compassionately every day. I want people status the person that really he cared about people he cared about himself. He cared about the work he did. You can really see that. He put his heart on sweat tears in the. What's he did for himself for his business for his family for the people that maybe he never met. The second thing is that it's always been important to me is that of always tried to be firing at some level and not words not just through trying to create another motivational speech. Adjust by how. I'm showing up my wife and every day you know really saying am I waking up at four am day feeling like I ready to go ready to roll and then the third piece that I just don't think it's enough. I was actually talking to a friend. Who's now he's like Brandon. Himself as the positivity coach I wanna be positive an optimist. I'm a positive person in. I've I've gotten the messages my whole life. You know more realistic attitudes are all you know.

"Team and then finding where those pieces connect you know. Where where do the rest of the team fall in line and you know that that only happens when we open ourselves up to discovery? Open up what this person actually brings to the table. I think so often were trained to flip that around and put the set parameters. I need this out of a person. I need that person when I hired. This is the specification and we limit by doing that. Because we don't look at the. Intangible what are the skills is personal brings? His experiences person breaks held US THEIR PERSPECTIVE INFLUENCE THAN IN. Where do their areas of expertise? Really come out in shy. Amsoil glad you said that in because there's like right you know especially when it comes to leadership I think the one thing that I see great leaders time and time again of course practices. I see time and time again and I think we all understand the idea of I think it was What's that guy's name the this? The HEAD OF TESLA. I can't think of his name now. Muskie Lawn Moss Friday a very well-known for saying the. I'm not a micromanager. is so on top of people and they be that that that style works great for him but time and time again. Use Find that if you actually allow people to be leaders themselves is kind of like the idea like listen if you people grow. Are you going to give them the actual space to grow or yet to hamper them down and saying this is how we always done this hour supposed to be is one of these Musicians is Harry Anyway to He talks Be might put it down and we're hoping people back as a here comes another one. This see. That stood on never balloons. Yes the seed that stood on. It never blooms. Because you're holding it down on you're going to get out of the way you're and people see sometimes. I think that you know when we talk about that. The first step is to do it for yourself right. I mean listen. I'm not saying that happened to you. Know I'm not by any means. There are definitely times. I- I lower my expectations. Are I put barriers on myself at doesn't allow me to lead the way I WANNA leave? What is team or be a leader for my kids or my nephews or what in any situation but I think that does start with ourselves? We're going to get people is based like most of the Times. Were not allowed ourselves open space. If you can't lead yourself. How can you lead anybody else? Tougher look put it that way than it does. Experience that a lot of different angles. You don't have put myself in that position for a number of angles so I if you can't lead yourself you definitely can't lead anybody else. What's your is your big takeaway with leaders and when you think about the people whether you were running a team more. Any situation was the leader. What have you always fallen back on? That's worthwhile for you to be open. And you're the best. Success comes being open dual L. Allow that person to come into the realm. You know you'll allow them to be themselves in. If you're stifling their you know your foot on the seat that's never gonNA grow. I think that's now I really liked that quota. Action ever heard that quote but it may have just come out of the AMAS. He told me this quarterback. Sometimes I just reach out there and I grab a though is all about flow. We kind of discussed going in a number of different directions on that same. Let's think it found. Its Way. You know all million flow has to water the sea. Well it's a the funny thing about flow is is. I actually learned going back to learn this from sports psychologist. That working for but there is swimming. The recycled work hard work. Hard work hard work hard but the idea of actually released accessible swimmers. Anyway Watch the Olympics. You see it. It just looks so loose. It just looks like they're just everyday. I'm so naturally and there is kind of concept. There are a lot of times in a lot of areas with leaders is when you're trying to force something trying to really if you I every time I've ever felt like I was trying to force client like those moments like entree get them into buying into this this especially when I was younger my career the reality when it will back as why. I should have been asking the question. Why are they struggling to move in? This direction is causing a ause. What is it is it? The fear is a known me. Talk about that or is it because they really feel. There's a better way it's actually think like okay. Well that's great but we could get a better result doing as I guess like you said we're open up. Openness comes in blaze so power allowing people to express allowing people to be themselves. I love what you just said about that. I think so may turned leaders can kind of get stuck in their own way to the they think that is the only way. You're not being guilty of it. Are we allowed guilty of it? You know this is this is my will. I'm trying to enforce that. We're not creating a flow gear. We are pushing uphill it becomes at CICIS. You're trying to push a rock deal. Keeps Rolling back on I? It's funny Example a leadership mistake I made so I was like I a call here. What Drew Coaching Collier? The four o'clock in so I was talking to you know like I was like okay. We're just going to do it. Why call like TRIPP. Lite is Ashdown extending Mike. Writing your questions in. GimMe this stuff etcetera and I said I'll just get on artist recorded with thought you know what people may want a break from the live calls a May WanNa bring that. I said the sweet odors go ahead guys recorded questions etcetera and do that way and also there wasn't getting questions which was very weird message. Somebody and they said they said well. Alex I can't speak run but I like your life. I'd rather gonNA live because I I don't know what the ask like you bring up. Oh that's what I want to ask. And then it was in a group Nujaine chain in like hundred people into like yeah. That's exactly we Libya with asking them like exactly So then I from oh I need I. I need to be a better job in that. Call Direction of what they would. Each person should be asked so added etc. Do something differently. But you're right. I mean I think that's the point is like we don't be made these decisions. They've been so smart Look like idiots. Glad that point come back around because that was thought and think drove my fiance. Leslie nuts whether this morning because I kept going back to this. We're not asking the right question so often. We're not asking the right question. Does not the we're looking for an answer? We're not asking the right question when we think back to when we were children. What did we do? Mummy why are we doing this? Daddy why does happen? You're constantly asking questions because you're learning not from the answer. You're learning from the questioning. Held to ask the right questions. Might I wife will love his podcast. Because she's the person who says she loves the ASK QUESTIONS THERE IN SHUTDOWN OFF. We shut it off with kids. Think about you. Don't as parents.

"Or are we doing it? You know. It's one of those aimless fascinations about the human condition that I constantly went into you know in some of US operate on that surface level or it is what it is you know from my perspective? It's one of those things you know. Do we create it. With the energy amend we put out you know. Be careful what you speak kind of mentality because it comes to life or have impact. Words have power or thoughts in our energy same way. Yeah I I think most people feel as some level whether you believe in God university Spiritual or whenever. I think there is some piece that everybody knows at some level the energy that we do put out off the energy we get back. And that's why I look at you even right now. Of course I see a lot of people in actually spread a post in. I can't remember all lines in it but it did talk about some everybody's actually realizing that the money doesn't make the world around and I was thinking about that. I mean money stops. Yeah exactly known people right what we all doing now. We're we're having to lean like a son of a gun right now Gordon Hayward Saker swim swimming things happening right. You know. There's like I think that there was a study done about. The pollution levels are the lowest. They've been in late thirty years. Some of the Afrin Los Angeles talked about that. That pollution club that you typically see is bringing summer into his own air when you look at it from that perspective. Has Mother Nature Chosen to step? In say Shit's crazy doesn't we're GONNA fix it even in some crisis way. I do believe things are some things are GONNA heal. I really do think as people were healing. People like the people say like what's the best thing is come out of this for you and say listen. The best thing for me is typically you know my son goes to daycare you. I see him early in the mornings and late nights. You're now we've had this shift a little bit typically. It's off Mondays. Fridays analogous to spend those days with him in addition to you obviously seen from the week and so this is never going to. I would have never probably played the way I did it but now it makes me think to myself now. I can shift my business in a different ways. They operating extra work day during the weekend. And that's hopefully I'm hoping people can see some audiotape Cornell. That's my hope you know you're you're going with that flow things in same change that flow in nature in its own flow relying US shifts back to where we're supposed to be we find our center Absolutely with without a doubt without a doubt I you know. Maybe the blessing disguises that. Hopefully we don't need another pandemic to make us stay right. I maybe my son is like ten years. You'll remember this ten years right but you know we were all God was stuck in the House and you know my son to be talking about out but I mean there's definitely going to change. Come out of this bill on the changes. I wanted the people that are entrepreneurs business owners. I hope they look as involved. There might be a different way to do business that you can both have the life that you want in the success that you want your business to you. Know it's it's all help things come together some circle around a little bit care not to kind of your back as we did go down such a tangent on that basis grades that that was the whole point senior discuss a number of times. That leaders are born to lead. You know. We're talking about this ideas leader stepping up now. What specific do feel is in our DNA or in the DNA of someone who was born to lead. You know. We're we're in a moment. Now where cream rises to the top. You know we're talking about things flowing today. Let's look at cream rising to the top. Yeah great any really touching on something that I have gone back and forth in when we For me Mrs like Oh this before. Launched a program. I mean for decades. This is something that Think if you look at the history of leadership meter development leaders training there has been such a divisive conversation about. What's the right leadership? Is it served? Servant leadership is forty readership. Are you are leaders are charismatic are they? Nationally born meters No it's a skill so everything can it's gone back and forth exactly what that means and I realized that my opinion to take on this does go against what I believe is being taught out there in the world of leadership that is this is that. There's no one right way to lead but everybody has the innate ability to lead. It's just a question of number one. What is that leadership style for you in number two? How are you going to fly that whether it was obviously Costa we've on north but this could be as parent is could be as trade is could be as a principal is could be again as a business which whatever that role is but most people tend to. I feel boxed. They tend to box themselves into this idea. Of How is supposed to be structured that it's this very very educational process appears classed. One a one in one or two years leisure one. Oh three one four in less than an MBA leadership. So I I have gone through all seen in all of it that I I would say. Let's throw it out and start all over because I think at the end of the day. Most people aren't doing the deep dive work on themselves. Were kind of leader. They are an ultimately building their organization or their family structure or their communities around works for them as leaders people tap into that. That's what I see about. The word flows so much than and the client Clients same base get successful time and time again not because they are following sir leadership. They're not following this down but they really okay. This is the leader that works really well for me and when a bill the mechanism as a business around just that. It's a topic that I did a lot pushback from people on what about this? Or what about that? I can't leaders grow their skills. Yes sure they can grow their skills but it's just like the That you love cliches statement. Always my favorite. My favorite thing like to say is listed. You don't ask a fish fly. You've Aska fish to swim in you. Don't ask the birds swim. You has a bird fly so often were asking these people to lead this way and they're not mentally that Ray. No the entire supposed to do it because my role model. So Make Austin here. This is how my parents did. This is how you're different. You're unique you're special. So we got it uncovered that or you and that's whenever become so much easier discovering your place in the world scaring your place in the world. You know what's our purpose? What's our intent? Yeah without a doubt with in No the values are important to people in. There's a lot of conversations about mission statements in core values. And those things I believe I come through. Experience is elegant again that most of I'm a family man at heart even if I didn't have a kid or wife I'm a family man. I grew up in a big family. We had huge holidays and like I always say that my my little guy. Yes I mean. I have a brother and sister and I have a sister-in-law in a brother-in-law but he has like twenty five aunts uncles. That are by my friends. Family to me is just really important. So that's a value within me but everybody's in totally okay as wonderful as great whatever. Your value is hope that you hold onto a deer new hopefully for in that positive message out into the world leader in hope and people gravitate towards is this concept of you were born with something different.

"That's an interesting angle. Let's look at what is the mindset necessary to be successful swimmer. While they're the first thing I would always say to anybody that wants to be successful swimmer. Is this the minds of consistency? That one of the things about swimming there. There's a this is something people don't know but there's always a for most competitive swimmer. There's always a two to four year range where they actually don't improve your times much. I still think about that for a second. You'RE GOING TO TWO PRACTICES. A you're going to your weight lifting Rylance Session. And you're spending four five hours at the pool in your swimming ensuring yards. And you're getting your heart rate up and you're exhausted and your hair is now messed up. Because it's chlorine and your skin smell like chlorine everyone says you clorox when you come to class and you drop point two Point four seconds. Not a lot of time like there's That's a really challenging moment for last summer because there were most of what you see in most swimmers out as exceeds. It's not this very gradual other This year next year center. It's usually stuck stock stock stock in Boom Betas. Dropped like a ton. It's time get like everything. Just become together all of a sudden and the way I actually a not. I guess the analogy like US something. A story says Brown said one of his motivational. That you know. There's a bamboo tree right. He put his bamboo seed in the ground. And You keep watering watered water. A nothing comes out for five years literally no plant also net six year. Boom it shoots off the hundreds of feet and that's how swimming is and I think that's the biggest lesson I probably taken into my my life in. Its Open I can pass on to. Lincoln is if you're just showing up consistently good since eventually happened and off. You don't control the happens. It's just a guy that being be ready for. Just be ready for work towards so I think to mean the big the first month the piece for owners and probably probably life lesson. But I really do see. That was allies. Quit four match Roy up to get a plant that seed let it grow no matter what you in life for solar. Wait down absolutely you know in swimming. You're getting watered every day. There are and that's the thing that you talk off with. I mean you can save as a life us under the Mindset Chamber at eight bouts swimmers I think goes under the most very calm. They very emotionally stable. The you know me on video emotional guy can go up down etc but I can remember my career. You have always kind of stayed in very similar spot. I didn't really too much up with the race is much down because I think batch real most thing would take. Its tool over time. I see the difference. That's what I think is a football players. When I look at football players. I imagine it you know for ten weeks community fell sixteen weeks right. You've got like basically get your energy up as high as you possibly can for that Game Day. Right I mean is getting one gain. That's what it comes down to ecstatic and you better be at this high energy levels so I always thought of football players. 'cause their energy and emotional long then all of a sudden after like let it rest for a week and then boom again But that that's the biggest thing with the mindset of a berry. It's gotta be a steady Eddie. You're very emotionally stable. Approach very very kind as in practice. Absolutely why Meditative. Very Meditative in fact. Now that's where I could see the connect there. That was an interesting augurs. If you think about mind says the Obviously when you look back at your life because you got an invitation like why did you get into meditation? Why is it becomes a support to you jail first off? It's just finding that state of calm demeanor what's going on. Sometimes life gets crazy. Sometimes you got no choice. Yo It's back to that sink or swim you've got no choice but to find the com- and Chew Center you know it's a choice. We choose how we respond. React everything Out of necessity. I've had my share of challenges so it was dead or fall apart. It's funny funniest to that is. I always feel like sometimes y stuff. Is it's innate. You love to say all like when people talk about meditating or talking about these mindset practices. Visualizations it'd be great to that it's always just comes from internal dry or the internal motivation for a lot of people probably does from something happened in their life. Some circumstances have something that they really didn't want have happened native really kind of go back to web in a center also but. I think that's was beautiful if you think about it. Is that even? If something horrendous happens if something terrible happens that we can find an recenter ourselves back to a specific mindset Always the word paradigm with everybody's Liking Aerodyne. You WanNa create for yourself because just like we are right now in this this world that we have people that are really hurt and really struggling and then we have people that are happy. They're feeling if you're alive you know we're we're always faced with that inevitability of being in a vulnerable position. That's that's our nature to fight to survive with us and you know it's always had is to come out in their to come there without a doubt. Yeah I think at some point there is there. I guess know. We've gotTA talk about this before but I d of sink or swim a little bad and I think he's done that funny. Never really thought of it that way. I never really thought of it that way but idea like you're in a sink or swim because always we always say well. You don't think you float if you do sometimes you have to. Sometimes I think there's always moments like let's that's looking at drastic swing wives capable of having a drastic sway without. I think everybody I do not think anybody came in the thousand twenty eight minutes cells. Everything's GonNa shut down all beside narrow. There's some irony in that from my perspective because for some reason I was hearing murmurs just about the economy and I'm sure that's just you know if you look back and connect dots you you can see synchronous. Yeah but you know I was hearing murmurings back in you. Know June of Pointy Nineteen Live Twenty nineteen an economic downturn was happening. It did whether or not that was prophetic or whether or not that was a harbinger anything. It gained a light. Here's my Iranian inevitably. There's some irony there but nobody nobody. I don't think you know had the ability to say the whole World GonNa come to a screeching all. I don't think so either. I mean maybe somebody did. Maybe there's a notre dame is out there that I figured out. I don't know I do think that that is it's it does come down to this. You're right I mean I you know I've heard it in some my investments in the people that I talked to or saying the same thing and I just use always like just because we've been talking about mindset wonder if we just are are manifesting what we really would you. There's a lot of levels to that. Are we manifesting in.

"Your head underwater or anything so your happened to go through these these challenges and you have to really almost like turn your mind and remember that a lot of the race strategy whether I was bullied myself for is believed as the coach had nothing. Actually I mean core trying to figure out their energy else was really how did their mindset work at specific points in the race. So that when you knew that they really start to kind of falter here that you can put a strategy to make sure that their mind thinks differently in that moment. That's that's what was so amazing about coach. I don't think alike people donated watch I think is probably a challenging aspect for the average personal. Look at in regards to being sport anyway. You know that's A. It's not one that you get a lot lot of the exposure in leisure watching the Olympics. But I could see they're such a mindset involved in that in highschool did actually starting in junior high. I was a lifeguard in had to go through the life guard. Trae it's swimming lap after lap after lap it's dragging heavyweights off the bottom of the pool swimming. The top dragging down the length of the pool and back several times and you. There's an endurance build up in. Just getting your life. Guide lifeguard certifications. I could see that sports where there's so many different angles to look out. That actually challenges. The purse was specially is funny. Because I I was alive. I was a coach Coach you had other responsibilities not really moneymaking. Sport like colleges. So you have to like well. You better figure out ways to bring value. Michael Phelps Right Michael Moore I guess. Probably the person now is if you're if anybody's watching this in their opposite Reagan's Smith is who I've heard is going to be the next big. Yeah she's on the females is he's GonNa crush it in whenever hopefully knock wood? We have the two thousand Twenty One Olympics. Which is funny because like. I always tell people like yeah. You could actually be grace remember. That doesn't make you a great lifeguard. Which is ironic anything? Think that. Oh it's vice versa. You know I was capable to save a life than I don't know for the life of me. I could have saved myself to swim in the swimming. And there's a lot of swimmers who is not last a day in a all avid football practice. You know you never know until the shoe falls on the other foot.

"I yeah cuts. I think it especially right now in world that we're in we have was the right thing. I mean there are so there's economy of perspective of what's The in the wrong thing in the reality is. That's okay if you're showing up today at not feeling or struggling or caught up in at some of the craziness you know. That's Okay. It's hopefully a gives yourself time and space to religious co often. I see people that are using this moment to say it's an opportunity. I have time I had the all this. This is a great time for really work as a a work from. That's gre- too but I do love the idea of showing up as he warned. That's me that's what I that's what I love about a cheap on general. She said it's great would be open up. Its career people real great with people. I mean. Obviously we now on instagram. Because hey is a really instagram. This is a real guy is legit. He's really is a good person I can. I know who it is is purely connected regardless. If it's like a one on one conversation I engaged in that episode. Just last speak. How often are we gaining? Real reactions in response is on social media you know. How often are we even getting a real person to begin with than Hell often? Are we coming in with the pitch? How often do we come in with angle or hell? After we'd is open to invite that person indoor I was I'll give out my coach Abbey and I don't know if this is an I. I'm not sure if I think it's a male or female thing but she did say something to me. She challenge the other day. Saying I don't know why all you men just don't sit down and have one on one conversation. She like all of us. Women were happy to have one on one conversations all the time life. She's like this this A greater need to have community. And I'm not saying I have the answer. I just know that what she was saying to me is that there is this need to just have people come into our world and it doesn't mean that people have to come in and stick in our world for white. I think that's one of the big as like like Donana. I didn't expect to find the person you're gonNA marry. I don't think any was most of us. Don't act that way but yet sometimes I think what we think of people that want to sit down and have conversations. It's almost the person do that. Even feel that. We've all got those direct Mallya like here's a fifteen paragraphs of how Genita- is like this in. It's like dude like I don't WanNa go on a rebound never gonna read. That often. Never GonNA respond back to you with the person that says. Hey how's it going? I'm more likely to like say. Hey what's up? Just because at the very least it's on the best question but a very least it seems like they want to have a conversation with me and I think that's you're right. I mean it's just being open to just what that first initial opinion is just getting to know people Jerry and I think it's crucial lot of angles to look at that. You know there's a lot of angles. There's only so far you can go with that conversation of. Hey here's the pitchers of the product you know and and your do greatest potential to generate. A sale is based on your connection in your emotional attachment today in not not from a needy perspective. I love that you mentioned the hallway. It's like going on a date. I fall back on that. It's almost a crutch to me a lot of time that you know. Are We operating from that? Space of black of meat in are like. Yeah you know it's a recurring theme. Are we operating from the space of lacking knee because that is a negative state of flow back to that concept of flow? Lack of need is. I'm so glad you said that because I think one of the reasons. You know full transparency. No I see a lot in the service industry. So whether you're selling coaching or consulting or some some sort of service I do see that a lot. I see that people like they get their one or three or four clients. The they're struggling that they almost attached their emotional worth to have. That client had asked or have good thoughts or get a good testimonial as really to me. That's like one of the scariest places. Any business owner regardless able to one or three clients or the person has thousands of clients in the idea that connector emotional worth to what their clients success. What they end up doing. It's you're right I mean it really is a very dangerous because the result you start to I think blur the lines of what I think. We're all odds for most of us that they wanted to have a happy enjoyable fulfilling minutes. I want it doesn't mean that I don't work hard. I work my ass off office but what it does mean else's. I'm doing that for to have time to go crazy. Tough mudder work outside. I do because I want to be able to around my fourteen month old. I do because you WANNA take trips down the Hilton head or whatever but yet they can either day at the you're right. It's that if we can over the that need into you are worth. I think. That's where At can be really scary place to be attached so much value on that worth of approval. You know we'll be all wanted to have that knowledge that we have and understanding bothers you know but got to kind of leverage that to where we're headed or balancing centeredness auto seeking that approval. How do you balance for your life? I think that's a piece right means not because I think what happens. Is the people put as the epicenter of everything so I think you have to have something outside of that world you just fall back on that kind of keeps standards. So what was that like for you know? It's been a long process in there as I eb and flow through live in invariably place myself in the line of challenge. It's it's in my nature to seek challenge in you know that that nationally backed you up where you're checking whether or not everything is in balance or whether or not everything is in check United some people finding religions people find it in. You know meditation seeking practices like that you know over the last number of years. I've adopted meditation practices especially over the last two years daily. Just taking that time to clean the brain in say everything's alright even if it's for ten minutes everything is alright and it requires a focus requires a practice is like everything else. I think that finding that level of acceptance with yourself becomes a practice in. It's it's never andy. Yeah and you know. I'm a big meditation Guy Home and do meditation for now. I've actually about eight years now off and on You know really saying he could be considered a insistent practice in my life You know it's like everything else up until about two years ago I really didn't dig in and make it a must have every day and like I said over the course of the last two years it's become a must have every day you know generally am and early riser conducive. You know first thing in the morning. The House is quiet. Everybody's Kinda still in. I generally have nine dollars ten a conducive space where there's an hour window. Mealy just had my time you take time. Say This is the boundary this the time. Everything else is like going you just letting flow. I love that I love. I love the idea because I think that meditation is becoming more and more of a accepted practice years ago. It was. He big thing now with know I think Mine Valley is probably one of the biggest proponent. Yeah as far as companies orientations. Go by I I know or corporate organizations are like hanging thousands of dollars to bring people to teach employees. How the bandits eight Practice it's amazing that The funny thing is like this as like my friend wants me to do a pasta. Do you know what that is it is? There's there's all these retreat centres all over the world and it's a basically it's a ten day no talking quiet. It's actually free. They only ask for donation at the end of it. But it's a self guided style type of practice where they basically give you. Sounds like your own little shack and they feed you basically vegetables. But you're not allowed to talk. You're not allowed. Basically mandate from the beginning of morning till the end of the day and The experiences I've had my friends have heard and I've heard even some other podcast trying to think of the guys. They are we you later but you know they talk about being the most white chain inexperienced in the world. You transplant a little one. I can't find a time to get away for a you're at a challenging phase has definitely hard to find that space having that week retreat. T you right in this moment probably sounds in its in. Its own little regard fantastic. Yeah but I'm sure there are a number of people out there that that whole thought of sitting still in the inactive for ten fifteen twenty minutes either. Sounds like such a challenge? They can't achieve or glee torch and being and being on an expert. I agree I imagine like if he asked me three years ago to sit in silence. I probably would say sure why not in. I'd sit there and my mind will raise okay. We get back to the email. Go Do this. It got this like my mind would start racing over your of is a practice and actually. I was the funny part of hearing the story was. I was thinking out loud. So what happens? He's like well people breakdown because when you're in such stillness for so long that you start to bring up these questions that you probably on about for the longest time so arthur how people with leave after three or four day. I could see that you know I can see it when you think about it with sports training you know when you're doing an endurance level of training there a ritual in a practice too that it becomes meditative correct from my experience win. I've engaged in sports activities. A high school it was that routine of your mind overcoming that perceived block. Yeah Yeah I mean. It was probably different that what was sports. Did you play high school? I played football and basketball. May Ryan in high school junior nice. Yeah I in my. My brother was a football player. In obviously I was a swimmer. I think the unique allies Vilo about sports in general mean you can look at the people it could be at the highest level. I don't care what sport it is. I mean even with bowling. I mean there is something to these athletes that are in these sports but I always tell people what makes a little different. Of course people people think about the most so mean is it the person who is training all these yards in all these hours and when I think back on it I think about yes? There was a lot of hours. What a pain. But it's one of the few sports I can think of. I can't think of another one headwear. No matter how loud the crowd is an how.

"And that's great but the two programs are so different than I. My first head. Coaching program was an all women's College in Virginia. That six hundred students. The school colors were painting brain. The Mascot Not Do not look at this. Golden thank of Athletic Success and we were able to shift that two years in the other school had was in Los Angeles. I'm one of those beautiful campuses in the Mecca of the swimming world. Talk Colleges one of the most beautiful campuses every academic audibility that she could once and that was a program that had a really poor mindset in really poor attitude around in some major shifts two year. I think it's just a day lesson that your leadership needs to have that adaptability. You're looking at that angle. You're looking at those three big cs culture climate and community. You know those creative vehicle for success in connect us on a bigger level so you know ultimately as as a unit we worked better with out without Grateful for those times in Europe. I mean I I you know my wife always asked. Do you ever Miss Coaching swimming. Unlike moments I have moments but I also knew at when when the time was right it was time to move on to a different challenge. And I think that's at every person rid you know what to go through. Those phases automatically all the dots. Connect like you said. We don't see all docs till we look back. And see where we've been those changes. Move US forward. Yeah they do and look at that that that learning training the I think we all know that you even as the world is. Kinda come still. I think the one thing we learned is does that mean people are just so or whether you're thinking about business we know we understand the skill of being able to manage motivate inspire a guide and teach. We're seeing that now as as more important than ever because people are struggling they think wow like is so much such a different model. When you're doing it through zoomed y'all versus when you're doing it in person but people recognize that importance of in looking back at all those years. I didn't realize that the training was indicated from you know obviously working with swimmers in hand but also more importantly. How do you motivate one of the top athletes in the world to come? Check out your school on a telephone call. 'cause we were restricted. We weren't really to do social media at the time we weren't allowed to do text messaging. There was like these majors. Nc delay restrictions at the time. We're basically it was a e mail and phone call and he couldn't really get a bill connection with almost at faceless interaction man you had no chance specifically if you're trying to build up over really kind of forces you to focus in on your efficiency of communication with Matt. Always you know Up For me personally. It really does come down to A. We've talked about this you know. And that's why I see about year right. One is not only being vulnerable. Bus Yourself to really truly care about the other person. Not that superficial. I WanNa know about your feeling that really care about than you. It never hear the person but I actually talking to one of my listeners. This morning we were. She was one of those individuals who know buried. Tragically lost her mom. During our recruiting process. Ideas felt bad. Obviously we you know I would talk with her in the realtor All herself in it was one of the reasons problem. She came to school within the IT. Didn't matter like she's just. She was raped student athlete. A great individual has no one should ever have to go through by themselves. But I think that type of humanitarian about how it benefits us just really saying. That's what's the right thing to do. That happened so often or should happen so often in life. What what is the right reaction to this? And it's a great angle. Look at. I find myself a lot of times. Both interacting with clients and interacting business in general or even in the social media realm watching people. Now they communicate. You Know I. I am a great people watcher. And I an alternate Endlessly fascinated with the angle of studying people on every level. How communicate how we can there? You know how we evolve how we react either so many different angles you can look at both on the conscious and subconscious level it serves as a constant source of inspiration for me to kind of look now from judgmental angle but from a learning able. Yeah I know I mean when you think about that I mean. Obviously you work with people in. You've been successful mini industries. I mean what? What's if there's a Goto strategy used to? I don't think I have one myself. I'm just curious what your way connect tate going you might that interact to try to establish that you're coming from that authentic place you know what your purpose and intent young too many times. I think we rush than interaction. You know we rushed to connect. We rushed judgments consciously and subconsciously. I think the biggest thing is removing that pressure to actually connect with somebody in. Make sure you're coming from a level of preparedness and not just you know so you have each down so you have your line down. Which is they? You're open be open. You know when you connect. If you're busy be honest be honest I am busy. Maybe now is not the proper time. Amelia. I've heard some great talks on lately that you know it's not always the best thing the way we kind of framer schedules full and then try to rush to meet those demands and communicate. You know if we're at a time where you're busy you can't hear the polite thing in the best thing to me is to say. Hey now is maybe not the best time. Can we reschedule this? You know I hear you. I see you. I acknowledge you know. Let's engage when it's it's genuine authentic. Yeah I think that's it's important. I think that whole honesty peace and it comes back to what you just said. Is that just really being fully transparent really fully open in conversation more? Often I think about the the people in my world whether they their clients or friends or partners or you any facet of my life. The best people have a relationship with is really just a relationship of wow. This is a person that I feel a sense of loyalty to for many reasons and a lot of the reasons because of how they opened up to me and how they communicate with me and how they appreciate conversation. It wasn't always a lot of time but I think we think of these connections as A. Here's all time like it's gotta be the fit and we think of this as like love at first sight or has to be this instant like okay we get along great and that's awesome enlisted. I always tell people like one of my best friends. Jason as a is a high inch of our Pyrenees guy who gets in front of a group of people and he starts sweating under like out so like you. You'RE NOT GONNA. It's not natural for you but you haven't seen Jason. He's just the best guy in the world. He's literally truly one of the people I go to for anything. It's just because at the David keep showing up and I I love that which. Just add about the ideas inconsistent. You'll have a key right there. Show up not just. Are we showing power? We show up and you know at one place where we meetings somebody. What place does our paths intersect here and not so much about what the causing effect is just you know. Where are.

What's the name of the newest program we built a born? A leading leadership has always just been something. I've always gravitated personally in. It's the type of people that I just in very fortunate to work with so many different arenas in my life whether it was my first career out of college as a college swim coach whether it was my first business to today now where I work with you know so. Many incredible orchestrated entrepreneurs coaches all over the world but list of twelve thousand on our list as of today new. It's just amazing. The emails I get but I really believe that the at the end of the day. Everybody the the message. I'm hearing out there more often than not is that you know. There's funnels in marketing and you've got to have the right. You know thirty second commercials and look at people really successful in business. In The Times that I've had three failed. Businesses have had to business. I've sold myself in. This is my new venture. My personal brain is going to credibly. Well I found that it's when I really risen up in stepped into the leadership role that was meant to be really stepped into what those values are but more importantly The business around what I started. And that's what I WANNA make sure that people whether they're at the Solo Panorama war that homework with fortune five hundred companies that into the day the more that we can that leadership of the people that are in our companies that are in her cells the more likely that the total business will start to thrive both in terms of impact on income.

It has spent time with my wonderful wife and don't join workout so that's really the focus in. I think everybody. Who's listening to this? And you know I tell everybody were were. I'm very grateful with everything. That's happened with corona virus. Everybody's endemic by everybody in our circle is healthy well and so anyways listening. They're safe health in well. Most United States looking at perspectives in life. You think it's kind of key in building success and happiness in any way you know what whereas our perspective. Where does that lie you know? How are we gonNA take this situation and make lemonade out of that? Jack Ohio saying for that guy you know sure either. Come up with that. I feel like I've kind of becoming known someone as the keenly catchphrase. You know always finding a little angle to kind of massage. Something or come up with a unique spin on that invariably. Every time I turn around something that's cropping up so there may be some truth to hat. I love it. I love it there I wanted. I know when I met you. I've seen I just. I like this guy is probably smiling. Twenty four Savak. I know we're all down on people. Say That about the. Here's ears Jaffrey Man. He's he's happy. Move and groove in making a difference. That's that's why might really have really happy to be here. Is You know how it is. I mean you so many incredible people out there But there's a lot of people that you can tell the just aren't really being their true selves and that's why I really appreciate even just. I think we all kind of relayed on what level of where we're at you know it's kind of our nature. I think I try not to be wonderful to make pre assumptions. You know but you kind of go with the flow of things. A lot of time near the is much you know it comes in so many facets in like I said he was a swimmer award in weather about where my husband. When I'm like I only talk about being in the flow of the husband right. I is just like it's natural right like it's almost like the force this kind of kicking things up cleaning these up like my wife is totally. Didn't want this and then when I can tell you know we're just not doing well. It's like oh my gosh what what do I need to do next. How can I help? How could it be a better husband? Try to figure out what that is and there is just a little slight difference in your own. Zone everyday deceives the flow whether it's being a better husband beat better. Business owner beat athlete. Whatever that looks like so yeah well. It's me is really finding what works well for you. That's important again that groove and kind to find a way into the zone. It's interesting you brought up your college. Coaching career That's at something when I did a little bit of background on your your discovered that you know you come from that source. Let's talk about that a little bit. What can you tell us about your background as a swimmer and as a swim coach at the college level? You're at Grinnell College correct. How'd that lead you toward your coaching career in your leadership career? I you know. I think it's almost natural without. Yeah I think there is Steve Jobs. One Time said you can't connect the dots looking for. You can only connect the dots looking back. Where True. I look at that time of my career where I was. I was really good swimmer ahead. Olympic aspirations and I'M NOT GONNA lie at the end of my senior year. I was fart broken from swimmer like I didn't war meet. I think Mile ASPIRIN. I was art. Broke in and I don't know if that that rage and disappointment shifted my will. There's unfinished business but I do feel like at the end of the my college had an opportunity to go with Nike and go or the Marketing Department and USA untrue position. Or I could go be an assistant coach at a small Liberal Arts College in Iowa and you know barely enough money to afford peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches and for some reason my gut. Just go for the assistant coaching position. I've always just gravitated towards leadership position. You know it's Kinda like when the teacher in a class. Is You need any volunteer. They'd be the first person to raise your hand. Because I was one to do. I was wanted to be active. And that's I always come up. What leaders are all about? They kind of picked up the slack. A they let their actions speak louder than words so even just get into the career. I think it just was always a natural fit for me. Coaching and helping serving teaching in his always just been a natural Never be truthful. I was never great corporate. I never was a great corporate person employees by any means and you know my initial thought gone into the career was. I'M GONNA stay here for one year. It'll be fine and twenty one. Twenty two I listen Iowa for one year. Who Does that? It's coming from? Its burr in Maryland in New York area but ended up standard three years as insisted three years built a really strong reputation is at as one of the top assistant. Coach is and a big time recruiter in actually moved on to. I always talk about culture. So much with clients in the reason is as my to head. Coaching experience is where you may say like. You took the programs that we're losing. It had a wind and it's over the top.
