Supreme Court blocks strict COVID-19 restrictions on some New York houses of worship
"Virus cases surge across the nation. The U. S Supreme Court has signaled a major shift in its approach to pandemic restrictions, siding with individual and religious freedoms over public health, and it involved a legal battle in New York. Sharply divided court has temporarily blocked the state from reimposing capacity limits for houses of worship in covert hot spots. Correspondent Aaron Carter Ski reports. The Brooklyn diocese said its churches have not been the cause of any outbreaks and successfully argued capping attendance at 10 worshippers in neighborhoods with high infection rates violated the First Amendment. The bishop of Brooklyn, said he escalated the legal fight to the Supreme Court because, as he put it, what could be more essential than safely gathering and prayer in a time of pandemic. The court previously deferred to local leaders on Corona virus. These restrictions, but this time, the 5 to 4 conservative Majority said. Even in a pandemic, the constitution cannot be put away and for gotten All the Diocese of Brooklyn shears the decision, Governor Cuomo is downplaying to relevant from any practical impact. Because the zone That they were talking about has already been moved. It expired last week. So I think this was really just an opportunity for the court to express It's Philosophy and politics, and he has that the decision isn't final because the case is still under appeal. Similar challenges of pandemic capacity limits on houses of worship were narrowly rejected by the court over the summer.

The Latest News On The War In Yemen
"War in yemen has been one of the grimmer stories unfolding anywhere on earth for roughly six years now for most of that time it has struggled fool widespread and much more so this year as the rest of the world was preoccupied with the obvious. One of the reasons that yemen has been under reported is that it has been difficult and dangerous to report from monocle. Twenty-fourth beirut correspondent. Leyla moulana alone has recently been to yemen and joins me now a layla. First of all the logistics at this point of getting in and out of yemen. How do you do it. The logistics arch freaky and there are multiple ways now. there awesome flights operating into yemen. And on the way in the way it was done. was through cairo's flying into cairo. And then going into an applet. Who'd you in the south now the flights of neuron a few times a week. They don't necessarily ron time. All hugely overbooked. Of course with people want to go on another extremely expensive as what happened with us. Was that when we lost one can can you then looking out as well because these flights are constantly moving. So it's very unsure when you go in how exactly oh gutting be able to get out and in all case We had to change into a land route option and dry options country which took days because the flights simply went operational on the way out so not necessarily the stable of travel. Itinerary will clearly once in yemen which parts of it. Were you actually able to see so. I was in shabwah. Governorate which is in the south is traditionally very Very tribal governor. At and at the moment it's now the only southern governor this fact compete under the control of the central government it was until the end of two thousand and nineteen ponti occupied by the some transitional council which is the nutritional southern separatists of southern yemen. But they were pushed out at the end of two thousand and nineteen alongside the shabani elite forces which were essentially local mercenaries hired and backed by the united arab emirates. Who of fighting that. They had been fighting against al qaeda terrorists forces that they will push out the two thousand eighteen so it is now backsitting under government control but of course at still a lot of controls over the different parties that some things. That isn't the right decision. So in that part of yemen is life relatively stable and peaceful on the one hand is driving around the capital city act. They're all going up. There are shop opening people walking around. That does seem to be a bishop. Prosperity come back and stuff. People was antony there were jobs hidden now. We can't find jobs in other areas with coming his to work so in on that side of things know that building tourist complex building hotels that very hopeful that the level of stability having now even things like went scoreless Address the that level of civility means that they will have increasing prosperity. The problem of course is firstly that the country as many said to me is still seen as water but also there are a lot of problems with stability they currently have posited is because there is oil. it's one of the three governorates that has a lot of oil in yemen and the governor has made a deal with the central government that they get a twenty percent cut. That goes straight to the governor at so they can invest in rebuilding infrastructure analytical houses in the governor at. That's a great deal. But a lot of people in southfield they should be getting even more not so much of it should be going to the central government that trying to encourage more western oil companies to come back in as also lots of liquid natural gas that the moment there is just one australian oil company functioning on The moment there is just one austrian oil company who is currently can shop. Hope that increase was fired. You enjoy -tunities Very unstable as i say with the political situation still going around. They're all active. Frontlines from the nearest one is in marriage to the north. That's fine with the season is also still frontlines. The southern traditional council as well given everything you've said about life in shaw born those soins reasonably encouraging signs of some sort of return to normality. Does it feel like the government is itself a self contained country at this point. Is there much talk about trying to put yemen back together. So this is the big question with some people are saying shove what is the example of how of federalist yemen could work. You know in which the different governorates level tournament. A certain amount of money to run that own concerns are loyal to a central government and of course contribute troops to a central government. Which is what's currently happening. Lots of shift one young men going and fighting own the nearest frontline that the government has up in a way in tons for its relationship that they have on say. The governor is a loyal to central. Government has a good working relationship barron which she has been given this level of autonomous theoretically that is hopeful future. The problem is that people are fighting for different reasons. This is something people kept saying to me that you know there are some people who had the interest of the money interest of the oil. The pool of calls many people saying that the uae and the arabia of that those reasons. But then you've got some transitional council bay come from a long line of people who believe that the south of the. Nfl is completely different from the nose. Should be united and shouldn't be wrong from the north which causes where at the central government is based although i should say that most of the people who make up the central government actually are outside the country right now because he ended so constantly moving on stable But seth me they're southerners new feel wouldn't at shouldn't be enrolled in the as the south bend. Of course you have. The who fees. Who are the shiite iran backed militia. Who are still fighting in. How occupied a lot of the north of the moment. They are running at sanaa city at the moment still and they of course flight final ideology and copy one of my money as many people said to me that it's not just about these business relationships on the national resources so while the idea the united yemen too. Many people is hugely appealing. And so many people that saying can you with retired war. We want peace. We want elections. We just want to get on with our lives and have yemen stop being associated with the idea of this ongoing horrific war which the united nations is called the greatest humanitarian crisis currently in the world but whether or not that's realistic the number of political issues currently butting up against each other both in tunnel and the proxy wars being fooled by international powers is is another question is obviously not short of problems but it was also burden this year as every country on earth walls by the covid nineteen pandemic. Were you able to get much sense of how that has affected life in yemen or how yemen with the resources it has has been able to handle it so the area i was in has extreme yellow covid figures at least in tons of what's being counted now going in i thought perhaps they simply aren't being counted all covered up in some way. One of the arguments is of course. It doesn't really make sense for the government to be covering up coach. Vic is because it's one way of them getting access to aid. Amy because so much aid money to other projects has been coastal this year because it will bring directed towards codex but in the area. I was in shock whistle. The numbers are extremely loads. They do have a new testing center in the capital of. Its just couple of months old. That's incompletely funded and built by the saudis very center. It isn't getting much use because they don't seem to be that many people coming in now elsewhere in yemen. The problem has been much worse. Part of the reason might be that there is not that much movement in the south. Where's the north in ogden. In saana a further away from that is a lot of moving there and we. Stephanie seen horrific numbers of people really struggling particularly ibp comps. Where who's it spreads wildfire. Now i did meet with several people who said that in the prisons. The situation is getting much worse as well. I spoke a couple of prisoners families who said that they the dominant co code in prison and the conditions were horrendous. They were not being freed Unlike many prisons seeing around the world who've been given a thorough from prison while the coronavirus has been spreading shouts great concern. The big problem really is as i say. That was not much of it to be seen at the moment. But the very worried about Of course we know that in the summer does seeing that the transmission. I'll in the winter. Once that construe immune systems are the health service simply The local hospital is absolutely overwhelmed. Ready mary i was having a den. Gay deng massive outbreak which is affecting a lot of young children in particular from the rural areas. You have to travel hundreds of kilometers to get to the hospital. So although right now where i was as i say not that big a problem if it does hit in the winter and docs saying they're concerned about that. It would be really really devastating. The muslim needs right now. Layla milana allen in beirut. Thanks for joining us.

Its about to get even harder for renters
"We begin today with a pair of stories about two key parts of this economy. The first one's a quickie because it's something. We have covered every single week. Since march the number of people filing new claims for unemployment benefits seven hundred and forty. Two thousand was the number that came out this morning. That is people who've lost their jobs in the week ended saturday seven hundred and forty two thousand of big as that is it is lower than it has been overall. That is true but it's a week over week increase in that number for the first time in a month in other words. It's going the wrong way story. Number two is housing which just keeps chugging along pandemic well pandemic be darned. How about that. Because it's a family radio show. Sales of existing homes last month hit their highest level in fifteen years. That's according to the national association of realtors and yes prices were up again to more equity for those lucky enough to own now but meanwhile a report out today from harvard tells a different story about a different part of the housing market renters. Especially those with the lowest incomes. Marketplace's amy scott covers housing for us one in five renters. Earning less than twenty five thousand dollars. A year are behind on rent and chris. Herbert with harvard's joint center for housing studies says the racial and ethnic disparities are stark. While fifteen percent of white renters at that income level or behind twenty five percent of black and hispanic renters are behind and this reflects the fact that black and hispanic workers are more likely to be the sectors of the economy that have had a shutdown from the pandemic and so have lost wages meanwhile to policies that have helped renters stay in their homes. A national moratorium on evictions and extended unemployment benefits are set to expire next month so january. It could be a very difficult month for millions of renters and evictions haven't completely stopped. Carol ott with the fair housing action center of maryland says it's up to individual judges. We are seeing people being evicted through the courts. We're also seeing illegal evictions where the landlord will go and change. The locks on attendant widespread evictions could increase demand for homeless shelters. Emergency rooms and child welfare. Services says dan three a research analyst with the national low income housing coalition and the public costs to health and social services systems could range between sixty two and one hundred and twenty nine billion dollars. He says the solution is direct payments to help tenants cash up on billions of dollars in background. I'm amy scott for

"amy i" Discussed on The Goal Digger Podcast
"You know I have never been asked this question. So I'm glad we're talking about this when the pandemic hit I was confused like what is going on what is this and how serious do I need to take this and then quickly I realized wait a second my students, my audience they are nervous they are confused they are looking to me to figure out what do I do in the number one question that came up is am I allowed to. Sell during this time like what the heck do I do, and for some reason Mrs, probably the leadership in me I felt called to be a voice during this time and I wanted to show what I was teaching. So what it meant for me is I literally rose to the occasion and I said okay. Here's what I think. We all should do we should continue to sell. We should continue to look at our offers and see how we need to. Pivot it in order to show up for the people that were serving right now, and we should not be quiet. We should not back down. We should not ignore what's going on and so I had to be an example of that. So I literally launched a membership during that. Literally the week that everybody was sent home during the very beginning of the pandemic and so I- navigated my way through that it was awkward very scary but it was so. Important to show what I wanted my students to do, and then from there I started showing up in talking about how to pivot, how to show up for your audience and how to be a beacon during a time where people were very very scared and it literally made me a better leader because I was leading during uncertain times I had never done that before. So I'm really glad that I felt called to that because I think it's made me better. Yeah. Some things never change amy I was listening to your podcasts. been listening when you're talking about like guys like not selling is not an option not in. That you had a lot of foresight to understand like this isn't as temporary as were making it out to be, and this is something that we've got to adjust to in one of the most beautiful things in the ways that you showed up was like you're like, you can still launch. You just need to be very cognizant of the language and the way that you're showing up and the way that you're selling and I just thought it was beautiful because it's like you can keep on with your plan. Let's just pivoted slightly to make sure that it fits the climate that we're all in and I was like Amen A. Vaccari. So. What big pivots have you personally made in your career because your career is over a decade that have just felt like you were jumping into uncertainty I feel like we all have these hill moments were like, what am I doing? Is this the best thing or the worst thing I've ever done? Do you have anything that stands out for you? Yes. Okay. So I love the US the question like over the span of my career because one of the first big pivots I made was moving from one topic to another and I think this is important to talk about because a lot of people will start to get into their business growing in online business and they'll get to a point..

It's the legendary Amy Cheryl old on tour. So is that your last show? In Manhattan and there's this vine around the block of like. Especially Young. Black. And Brown people who? Many of them seem to have never been to a show before but like the Amy Cheryl show to them is like this is special and you have become this. ICON for these people who are like, you know I mean following the Michelle Obama painting like Oh my God. Amy. End NYC. How is that for you? Because you feel about like there's all these people who are coming into art for me like I'm a crossover star for a lot of these people. Yeah. I don't I don't feel like for me and I didn't know the line was out the door until afterwards it was so long and I somebody told me a pitcher and I'm like that was downstairs you know but I don't like it's. It's for me I feel like it's for the art. It's because people are hungry for it. You know what I mean. They're hungry to see themselves. In ways that they've never seen themselves And I do attribute. I can't I call it the Michelle Obama effect because she just has that effect on on everybody people love her and I feel like by default they love me and I just happened to make great work too. So that does makes it even better I. Think There's definitely an excitement at seeing a young black woman. Yeah. For sure making are being celebrated for it and they can understand the relatable in this reflecting. Yeah, it's loving. It's kind. And the vibe that night was all love you know for me to see young kids there was like really special. I. Think as I was walking around I was really excited to see five year old six year olds eight year olds that. They knew who I was and they wanted to take a picture with me and those were the most touching moments because. You know the Gallery said like we've never had this demographic in our in our space before. So that was probably the first time in the history of Howser and worth, and it's a global gallery so it was. A big deal and it's time it's time for that kind of stuff time for us to be in those spaces and to fill ownership and to be reflected on walls. And see ourselves and receive love back from those images. I love the work and I wanNA talk about the work and really dig into it, and one of the things that really leaps out is the color choices. It is so vibrant and. Yet not overwhelming. Can you talk about to some of what you're trying to do there. I. Everything that I do is intuitive. and. Try to do it is just what happens when I make the work you know so. I have an image in my head. I tried to find the right clothes and then figure out the background color and then everything kind of bills from there but you know. It's hard to explain because like now I work with With an assistant who helps me like mixing colors and stuff like that And the other day I was like I want this blue this particular kind of blue and I can see it in my head, but I can't communicate that colored to my assistant to mix, and so she mixes it and I'm like, no, that's not the right color. And so I ended up having to do it myself because I'm it's I'm very very particular about it and I can't explain it I just I can't explain it but I don't know whether you watch Do you watch the good place that? Of. Course. I love lives around the corner. Are you kidding me? So I see what to well. I, love him When They described color or taste I think. I think one of the flavors of the yogurt was like when your cell phone battery is charged. You know what I mean. Everybody knows what that feeling is like I feel like if I could describe my colors, it would be something like that and you know what I mean because it's an emotion attached to it as well and it's and I don't think I realized how specific it was until I had to work with somebody to help me and I say do this and they're like, nope, that's it's something that only I can do and yet. So the colors are vibrant and they really work on the eyes and get all the black people are this gray. Gray the same color over and over. Yeah. Why are you doing that? Story has changed over the past decade. So it starts off with because I thought it looked cool. It then graduated to. Later. You know because I'm not walking into the studio with a whole bunch of words in my head. It's like you make some work you look back at it and you have conversations with people on your that really make sense. So for me when I look back, it was because I was I think not wanting to work to be marginalized in a way that would Corner into a certain conversation about blackness and identity. and so I think I was struggling with that because I knew I was painting black bodies and I know black bodies or political and I know. Just because they're hanging in museum.
"amy i" Discussed on The Takeaway
"Something I've been paying close attention to how much campaigning has changed since the beginning of this pandemic. Wasn't that long ago that we were making our way through the Democratic primary packed into town halls, followed campaign buses across his and highways and watched candidates, meet-and-greet voters in restaurants and state fairs. While some of these events can seem a little superficial. They also serve as a way to demonstrate momentum and excitement. Zoom rallies just don't have that same feel. Today we're just two and a half months away from election, and it doesn't feel like there's going to be a way for campaigns and candidates to returned business as usual. That's especially true when it comes to the time honored tradition of door-to-door campaigning. Campaigns rely on these efforts to hear directly from voters. The covid nineteen seems to have made that impossible. Well, not for everyone. Americans for prosperity, a conservative organization founded by David Coke is knocking on doors and swing states in support of Republicans running in Senate and congressional races. I spoke with AF P., President Tim Phillips about their efforts, dozens of groups out there doing TV ads, digital ads, radio ADS. There's almost no grassroots involvement person to person so Americans for Prosperity Action. That's what we focus on door to door individualized texting efforts as well. Telephone efforts from local people not some foam bank in in eight hundred center of thousand miles away. But local folks, and our goal is to reach swing voters. The folks who we believe based on our data analysis are genuinely up for grabs in this election on these individual Senate candidates that we're supporting or at the house level. The congressional level you know you think at a moment where we're in a pandemic where person to person contact now can be seen as so dangerous. You're saying that your volunteers are being that people are opening their doors and not saying, Hey, this is too dangerous. I. Don't feel comfortable doing. We wondered what the response would be. We began carefully testing back in early June. And now we're at full all in with both activists and staff at the doors I've probably knocked on I bet over the last nine weeks probably thirty, four, thirty, five, hundred doors I'm guessing swing voters I may have had I don't know maybe three to five or six refusals based on filling uncomfortable. We follow all social distancing guidelines. Frankly that's very easy to do on door to door. It's easier than almost any other easier than going to Walmart because it's easy to ring the doorbell step back six to eight feet onto the sidewalk and we train our people that so. When someone comes and looks through the peephole or through the glass, you know the see us standing back. Sometimes, it depends on the state. Sometimes, we have a mask on sometimes we have at our hand in case they would rather if accountable with that and as you also mentioned, you're one of the rare groups that's out there doing this. I, was just reading something from. Reuters. About a liberal group called Progressive Turnout Project that suspended its came at saying effort citing a rise in corona virus cases and that there were also complaints from their field staffers saying they felt unsafe. So. Talk to us a little bit about the people that you employ to go door to door and concerns about safety. We ask them up front if they have any concerns or issues, and we offer for them to be able to do telephones because we have you know from home or from field office, they can choose where they want to make the call. So we give them options to still be able to make a difference because people typically. Are In our line of work because they want to make a difference and so we offer them the ability to make calls So they can they can help or to ride out individualized postcards to swing voters with notes that are handwritten notes about why we're supporting our particular candidate and I can tell you at the doors the vast majority I mean, literally ninety nine percent do feel comfortable I think Americans are looking for practical safe ways. To do what is the number one issue when people ask me you've been a of doors what's number one issue politically this year. It's this, how do I get my normal life back but still being safe and defeating this pandemic while also realize that shutdowns having enormous consequences with the increases in deaths of despair that every state is showing at this point from suicide drug overdoses. Recognizing their frankly tough consequences as well to shutdowns. Do you think other groups that are like yours political groups who are out there trying to get their message out to voters are making a mistake by doing it virtually by just doing this through text and phone and zoom? I think every group should do what they think is best. So I would never fill the ability give someone else advice I I know what's wrong right? There's something clearly that you see as you could be doing this right now through text zoom and all, but you but you all choose to go door to door. So. There must be something even before the pandemic. Our polling and focus groups showed us. That Americans were feeling more isolated, and now that we're independent deep into those, those numbers are higher. and. So I do think there is significant benefit. To being able having conversations. That are ya bit more intimate while still being socially distance obviously, we do see value in that. Are Voters. Now, do they want to talk more than they did say in two, thousand, eighteen, twenty sixteen like engage longer in conversations. We do find elevated levels of what we call completions, people who opened the door, and actually you know talk through the questions and answer the questions and have a conversation. Here's what's happening that at least from what I'm seeing these swing voters. They feel profoundly impacted in a deeply personal way by the pandemic. The resultant economic crisis and also by the racial justice and because civil upheaval that we're seeing across the country people in the middle or different, they are not viewing those three happenings through an ideological lens. Now, although they've got to find out way on my kids going to school next week or not a can I go visit my my elderly mom who is living in assisted care center in amy they're more fluid than I've ever seen him. On who they could vote for yes. Yes. There's a view out there that this is a base election at everybody has an opinion of trump or the Republicans or the Democrats, and by the way I think that's true I think almost everyone does have an opinion. But now more than I have seen it in my career. These folks these voters in the middle there fluid that they fill profoundly impacted by all that's happening. They're paying more attention for a sustained period of time more than they ever have at least in my lifetime. And? They do not yet know. How we're doing, they haven't decided yet who's doing a good job who's doing a bad job through this are things looking better. They haven't decided that yet, and so for that reason, they're fluid because the issue in this election I believe is not any one issue. Instead, it's a broader macro level question and it's how do I get my normal life back and which of these candidates out there whether it's for president or down ballot gives me the best chance to get my normal life back. Well, Tim Phillips I really appreciate you taking the time out of. Knocking to come and chat with me. Absolutely. Hope you'll come with amy I. Hope you'll come to see this at some point for yourself. Tim Phillips is the president of Americans for prosperity..

She's hilarious. She's very funny I just want to point out that I talked to our guest. Amy Schumer before all of the chaos and. Emotional horrors, and convulsions that that followed the killing of George Floyd, and we are in the midst of intense racial division right now and anger and We're also that butted up against covert nineteen, and so we find ourselves in these very serious times, but I had this conversation with Amy Schumer who I love, and she's just hilarious and delightful, and we had this conversation before any. Of of the upheavals of the last week, so I wanted to make sure that we explained that to people and so I know there are a lot of us out there a lot of you out there that. Would or could use some laughter and could use some silliness, and that is what that interview provides, but I also wanted to be completely honest and say that We're taping this segment now. the heels of every thing that's happened over the last couple of days so. How are you guys doing, Sona, how are you? I'm okay I'm yeah. No, it's funny. No one's good. I ran into I saw friend of mine. This woman and I said. How are you and she said? I'm good and she had her mask on, and this is you know two or three days into the riots over George fluids killing, and she said I'm good. And then she just stopped in her tracks, and she turned to me, and she said I lied. I'm not good and I was like I know. It's a reflects to say I'm good. I'm I'm guessing you feel the same way. Matt Yeah I think so I'm sad. It's a sad time for our country in the people at the core of this struggler justice for George. Floyd black lives.

I heart goes out to all of the people suffering yeah. Well we have this making comedy at this. Moment is a strange thing.

Add to the weirdness of the quarantine I think you're right I think it does I hadn't thought about that, but it's all very weird, and it's also weird to go from New York where I I mean Manhattan where I think they were like estimating twenty percent of everyone was going to have it or something like that right right and then come somewhere where there's been twenty. Twenty nine cases total but I think people are more afraid here than they were in Manhattan. which is you know So you know people were really freaking out here and we're like okay, but we're. You know we've been here for a couple months now, but we're like we just came from where it's really everywhere, but here it's like people walking around lake in like a hamster like humans hamster wheel.

S. imports less than ten percent of our toilet paper if we got most of our supply from overseas then you might understand the run on toilet paper but he said about one hundred fifty U. S. companies make the stuff there's no shortage of toilet paper just temporarily bare shelves the shelves would be restocked probably Monday and also also you have this business with that said the hand sanitizer they've been telling us for years the hand sanitizer is better than soap and water because open water can't kill germs now they're telling us exactly the opposite exactly the opposite use the hand sanitizer only if you don't have soap and water and if you don't have soap and water maybe you should go out and buy some of that it's a fifty five it KLIF traffic.

B. twenty eight hundred the next week she assumed that there was more than that chance of taking into consideration and there are a lot of cases that have not been reported a lot of cases that have not been discovered and confirm that all that stuff and yeah yeah but the point of it is that it's it doesn't matter if the numbers are off a little bit that doesn't affect the the the the what is the word I'm looking for it doesn't affect the nature of the statistics and the M. the projections she says we're looking at about a million U. S. cases by the end of April second two million by may four million by may eleventh may fifth and so on she says the exponentials are hard to grasp but this is how they work and she says bottom line on this is in the US we have about two point eight hospital beds for every one thousand people with a population of three hundred thirty million people this is one million possible hospital beds at any given time sixty five percent of those beds are already in use that leaves about three hundred thirty thousand beds available nation wide bottom line they will all be filled by may fifth yeah and I brought this up a little earlier too is it not everyone's gonna stay in those bags and not everyone's going to go to the hospital no but there are enough people coming in behind them waiting for the beds as there is the point and you know I think it really bears repeating that there is no implication here that everybody's done they're going to be any greater deaths risk right or anything like that but you can continue to to go down this line and see how one thing affects another she says as health care systems become increasingly burdened that includes prescription shortages as Scott pointed out it's not you know there's no no specific prescription for people with corona virus but certainly for the symptoms we'll take the same pills for for for the cold and flu and so forth again ever you're never gonna have shortages of those and beds we've got masks she's goes into the numbers about masks and of the people who work in health care themselves and how they're gonna be falling by the wayside so it could be a very serious problem and this is why countries like Italy and basically just shut down right Italy or are they locked up the entire country nobody goes in and out not yet literally yesterday was we were saying twenty five percent of the country was stuck now it's everybody unless you have to travel for work or an emergency that literally what they're saying is the right decision is to stay home the future of Italy is in our hands we've got to be more responsible today than ever then they have to say in the way that they have to they have to you know to trust people to take take care of themselves and their families and to be do the responsible thing as far as society is concerned and by the way just go back to Liz Specht.

I was kind of crushed by this because I love the idea of having a authority for I was I was a furry when I was in very friend of very Powell and so the next logical step was to get rabbits and I remember going to the pet store to get a rabbit rabbit. I brought it home but it was hopping oddly and I picked it up and looked underneath it and realized that it didn't have find feet it just had these two little nubs so I brought it back to the pet store owner and he said all right orange pick out another one and he took it kind of aggressively and tossed it into a separate bin and I said well what's going to happen to that one and he said Oh one of the snakes is GonNa get lucky and so I said well okay. I you know I can't have that happen so I can you at least give me a discount on it and he he's. I'll tell you what I'll knock off five bucks so he gave it to me for fifty dollars instead of twenty and then right when you left the store with nubs he went onto feed the snakes a bunch of able bodied rabbits snakes out there like this one doesn't have feet good. The legs are my favorites are really my lucky. Day could be a dream life could be injury who ship chipper. You're listening to life short. I'm your two-legged host.

She wouldn't move in a straight line so shoot run around in circles and make this buzzing annoying yes she does. I think a neurological problem album of because she would co her head was constantly cocked to one side and she would favor that side when she ran so which is why she ran in circles because she was constantly. I think she was trying to go straight but her head was but she would also remember the worst thing she did she would she would. They just shit everywhere. I mean there there was my poor mother was like beside herself. Oh speaking AH rabbits shit everywhere. Oh Yeah you remember yeah. I know what you're going to say what you do to me. When I was a child so my two older brothers would to torture me they would one of them would would hold me down and the other would cover my eyes pinch my nose off? Oh this is awful WH- making my mouth open feed me what they said was rabbit. It wasn't that cruel because rob little because rabbits make little pellets poops and they would say say this is rabbit boob. You're eating rabbit. Who and I you know be fighting as much as I could but I would have to have this rob who for my mouth and come to find out they weren't feeding me rabbit poop thank God but it was ostrich poop but they were feeding me rabbit food these little pellets which which is roughly the same mm sizes rabbit proof still not good? It's still not good when you're when you say you're seeing some rabbit poop. You should instead be feeding them occurrence or something anyway. I guess they loves rabbits so so the reason we're talking. Rabbits extensively is because because our guest today is it's hard to separate her from her love of rabbits. She talks about how much she loves her. She used to go on Letterman and Dan and her pet rabbits. Remember were a major topic of conversation. She's a rabid enthusiast.

This is a deeper dive step-by-step the pro. You get real specific. You're the go to source the con- you might get pigeonholed but amy I did make a note here because your success story here. You're kind of pigeonholed for a little bit as the FBI ads girl in you made the transition also can you just real quick talk about that yes so. I was known forever forever as a facebook marketing expert and then I drill down on facebook ads with the spotlight course facebook ads insider and I started to be known for the IT facebook ads person and then in that made me great money and put me on the map and it got me out there and so I would never change it for the world but after a while I I started creating courses and I wanted to teach created courses.

"I say no to a lot of stuff way more than I say, yes. But guess what that means? That means that I have consistent revenue coming in. That means I've been able to grow my business to multi millions over the last few years. And it also means that I get a lot more time with my husband, and my son and my dog, and I really get to call the shots. I ventured out into this online world to create an online business because I didn't wanna boss anymore. I didn't want someone telling me what to do or went to do it. And so having a digital core. Business allows me to be the boss my own boss. Call the shots and also again not pill pulled pulled in a few different directions. I think that's the one thing. I really wanted to get away from furnish. And one of my big takeaways here less is more. I mean think about these. Numbers at Amy sharing ninety percent of her revenue comes from these three courses soon to be two and guess what? She's great at all of those three things her team is able to become great at all those three things because that's what their focus is there following that. One course until success. Guess what? Her adspend is not getting out of control because he's not doing ten other things while the ads are running and nobody's paying attention to them. They know their numbers in side out because this is what they do. This is where ninety nine zero of her revenue comes from an chinos those numbers, so Amy I wanna cut to the chase. Because so many people struggle when it comes to creating digital courses you've created three great ones that have brought you multiple millions of dollars per year. But what are some of the struggles that people have creating digital courses? One of the biggest ones that pops up is what if my ideas and good enough. What if I spend all this time effort and money creating? Digital course. And then I put it out into the world, and no buddy buys it. And here's the thing back in the day. When until you a quick story when I first came on the scene, I knew like from day one when I left Tony Robbins. I knew I wanted to create digital.
