He signed the state budget bill yesterday alongside lawmakers on the legislature's joint budget committee, working from piece by Derek, draper in the Center Square lawmakers and we talked about this to a great extent, they were tasked with the rather well onerous responsibility, cutting three point three billion dollars from the budget because of projected shortfalls from the economic impact of the pandemic. Governor said during a news conference. Just yesterday we went from a projected surplus to a projected shortfall practically overnight, he went on to say the JBC team art team really move mountains to reorganize to rewrite a budget that made sure the state could continue with our necessary covid, nineteen response, and of course make the cuts they're required to make, but to do so in a way that was evidence based, and that made sure they were investing and supporting the programs that Colorado would need the most. During these difficult times poll readily acknowledged that the bill wasn't the budget they expected when the session started, but that indeed they were able to prioritize spending. He said I know this isn't the budget that any members of JBC expected to deliver that I expected sign just a few short months ago, but the JBC's hard work and difficult work has minimized the damage that this budget does I suppose. That's a matter of just kind of putting it into perspective. Right because. Cutting out three point three billion well. That's GONNA. Have some pretty dire ramifications pretty much across the board. But once again. Police saying. That the JBC's hard and difficult work has minimize the damage that this budget does. JBC chaired Diana, Esker Pueblo saying that throughout the budget process, lawmakers wanted to make sure that Colorado in state safe. We wanted to make sure they stay paid. We wanted to make sure that small businesses would be able to recover. We worked very hard throughout this entire budget to make sure that Colorado wins came first, and the cuts came second.

Western petroleum live and local via the auto collision specialists studios all right, so did you watch the trump rally from Tulsa Oklahoma be interested in your thoughts on that nine, seven, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, eight, seven, seven, three, five, three, thirteen, ten i. mean you had the mainstream? Lame stream media calling president trump always a super spreader I. Don't know it gets back to the hypocrisy here. which protests are acceptable in a time of cove nineteen, and which are not, and is there indeed? No, it's not rhetorical. Is there indeed a double standard here I mean? The media rarely cited the virus a during the social justice protests, but oh my gosh, the uproar over the trump rally, but asks the question. It begs the question. I should say did tick Tock and K pop K. pop is Korean. Pop vans sabotage the trump rally in Tulsa. It's kind of interesting. Oh. Yes, we haven't had. A HICFA knee of the day for quite some time, but after top Democrats gloated that teenage activists had sabotaged. At President Trump's. Oklahoma rally on Saturday. Trump campaign fired back within hours, saying that media organizations are complicit in spreading false narratives about the event and that protesters and the corona. Were indeed the real culprits Inter representative Alexandria Cossio Cortez specifically, asserting taking to twitter that teenagers allegedly reserved scores of tickets for the Tulsa Event Online, then failed to show up thus preventing others from being able to attend. Here's what a cause.' Oh Cortez road to. Trump campaign manager Brad Scowl referring to a popular Chinese video, sharing social media application actually. She, said debris I'd Brad. You just got rocked by teens on. TIKTOK now a spokesperson for the Tulsa Fire. Department said that fire marshal records so that just under sixty two hundred scan tickets were logged for the rally at the. Center the figure doesn't include trump's team. Staff members I believe six of them Oh. Yeah, this was e- latest outcry on the mainstream media was just kind of following this. In advance of the rally O- six campaign workers tested positive for Ovid. Oh, it's the end of the world as we know it. Because member I'm not making light of it and I'm not diminishing the number of people that have died as a result of cove nineteen, but this is a two tier to track conversation with. With more testing. You're going to get more positive results. Eighty to eighty five percent of US don't even know that we have it or we have the sniffles, or we have to clear our throat of APPs. We have a cough. Not Undermining the upward white of one hundred twenty thousand people across the country who have died from it, but you need to separate numbers in terms of testing from a spike in hospitalizations. I know I. Keep Repeating that, but it's important that we keep that in mind meanwhile. Back to this piece out of Fox News, guilty as charged, yeah, the president and his campaign this in advance of the rally at talented one million ticket requests, the area the arena's capacity is nineteen thousand scale for his part. countered by explaining the campaigns process for screening out false ticket requests, which was implemented after activists made similar efforts to derail previous rallies. It's not their first Rodeo. They know what's going on. He said leftists and online trolls doing a lap thinking they somehow impacted rally attendance. Don't know what they're talking about. Or how rallies actually work reporters, who gleefully about tick, Tock and K pop without contacting the campaign for comment behaved unprofessionally, and we're willing dupes. So the charade now here's something else to think about. If Cossio Cortez's claims about TIKTOK Richard. Well, wouldn't that represent?

Don't wait until the day before they can just drop the twenty four hour box. You'd be to that Dave Election Day and what happens if you spoil it or you spill coffee on it now you end up vs because you waited too long for another solution so Please get those ballots into us before Election Day if you possibly can. As you bring up a very cogent pointed I am a coffee spill from a long way back particularly. If I'm wearing something white, I mean that that just narrows the timeframe and wished in which that white shirt is sullied, but what happens if you do, spill coffee on your ballot, or if your kids breakout the crayons and coloring on your ballot?

All right. That's good to know Finally. There's a lot of. Consternation a lot of conversation about the efficacy, the safety, the security of mail in ballots, and I find it fascinating, because Colorado was kind of a trailblazer in that arena, right? Well. Absolutely we're one of three states across the nation that actually do mail balloting and have done it for a while. The other would be Washington. And Oregon and I. Tell You what we do. Have a wonderful system. I asked often about broad. I will tell you in Larimer County. I see nearly none of it when I do see someone who who crosses the line. It's usually someone who was confused. That doesn't matter Gail. However, confusion doesn't get you out of it. You still could visit from RDA but but you know usually what we see. Someone just got. You know life is happening for them. What happens to your brain? When you're when your wife ends up in the hospital emergency room or your child is is You know broke their leg or you poke something in your eye, you know people's lives are happening until they do stupid things when when their lives are full of other things going on, so, but that doesn't matter we still we still send him to. The and RDA is very. cares a lot about voter fraud and is very active and doesn't let those things go, which were very proud of. A friendly visit from the DA well. You really don't. Walk. Yes exactly and I'm sure I'm sure. The DA is a lovely individual, but yet when it comes to voting that something, we all take seriously so Dan. Yeah, despite the the noise that we are hearing across the country. Colorado's voting system mail in balloting. has proven to be very very safe.

There's big news coming out of Fort Collins too. So that's something that will dive into and then restaurants reopening. It seems to be the talk of not just the town. I think it's the talk of the nation right now and in. What way will they open will dive into that as well? Look back on what Governor Police is supposed to be putting out some guidelines here before too long. He said that yesterday that it would be sooner rather than later For these guidelines to be coming out but we have not seen anything yet. He he did say was either yesterday or today. Still nothing from the governor as soon as we see it but we're going to look back at what his initial thoughts were and dive deeper into that. And then of course we get a headline that caught my eye. But let's get into this. Let's start from this first story. via thirteen ten K of K DOT COM multi billion dollar shortfall forecast for the Colorado budget State lawmakers are maker picking the best of two bad options in their quest to cut billions. Yes billions with a b from the next Colorado budget. The legislature's Joint Budget Committee says Revenue Forecast. From the governor's office shows. The state will have a multibillion dollar shortfall over the next year drew the Corona Virus. Outbreak forecasters say. The situation is likely to be even worse in the twenty twenty two year So scary stuff right off the Bat. But we knew this was coming right and now it's time to continue that innovation. We've talked so much about how the ingenuity and how people have gotten creative through this crisis while our government's going to have to do the same thing that's just the fact of the matter. There's only so much for NANTEUIL aid out there for everybody. Multibillion DOLLAR SHORTFALL. So you're going to see some cuts coming some major cuts coming when you're talking about billions and billions of dollars so that coming from thirteen ten. Kfi DOT COM. Let's jump to the Loveland reporter Herald Lamoure County clerk encourages voting early by mail to eat. Cova nineteen strain. This is something that we heard disgust between president. Trump and governor Paula's Or last week rather when they were talking about well they had the in person meeting and and president trump brought up that he is not a fan of the mail in voting. Colorado's implemented it. Both parties have agreed on it. They enjoy it and now Lamoure County clerk and recorder Angela. Myers is asking area. Voters to register and vote in the June primary election as early as possible this year to offset the procedural challenges posed by Cova. Nineteen this for Max Max.

Her office is working with the county health department setting up barriers so individuals may safely work within six feet or one of another. That is something that's been lost in. All of this is that eight is still an election year. I think it's been lost for for. Most people is that it is an election year. Not just a presidential election year but even at the local at the local levels whether it's city county. Whatever the case is there seems to be a lot of those political ads starting to run around that I know we all love so much. The article continue continues. She's still she said.

Does elevator show elevator pitches. Right elevator pitch and a Fleur de LA. And I was on their show. And so that Friday and a lot of us online on that aired. So that pretty select traffic and also score. I'm a score mentor, and they had a contest, and I I wanna fifteen thousand dollars. Wow. That's that's amazing scorgeous for people out there scores. The retired executives who are now wanting to use their time and their the their success in the the knowledge they've gained to help other entrepreneurs make it happen to kind of as a mentor. Right. That's what score does. Yep. Yep. Completely free. Free service for entrepreneurs, though, you I should check it out. And you want fifteen thousand dollars in that. I would imagine at the point of growth of the, you know, the the the where you are with your business right now that can be transformative kind of thing. I got to put the money to good use. But yeah, but that's amazing. Yeah. And that's where I'm at right now is trying to build the right team really helped us grow. And you're using the power of social media specifically Facebook and do it. I would imagine you're using Instagram and others to. Yes. I do have the basics my favorite personally, but you have Twitter Instagram. Yeah. I would imagine Instagram maybe Pinterest as well. I've given a lot of moms on that community. And and that might be a good site for you to check out as well. And then what about what about a search? You know, you're doing anything in the way. Search optimization to drive traffic. You know, when someone has a need. I mean, do you remember when you were looking for a solution to this problem your daughter was using three towels? You said, you know, Google was your best friend at that point. But you had to go to the search box and you had to enter something into that search box. Do you? Remember, what you entered probably like a full body towel full-body towel. So yeah. Are you using the power of search either those keywords are others to also drive traffic to your store? I do have that on the shop by you know, can you can choose your where Edwards. Uh-huh. But it's something I should probably look into what about analytics, do you know where your traffic's coming from. So that you can see what's working and what's not again on the shop. I can you that option? Most of them come from Facebook. Yes. So I think most of it comes from Facebook because that's your really your focus right now. Right. Correct. Yeah. Yeah. You're gonna wanna make sure you use the power of whatever analytics are available to you whether Google analytics or the shop if I- analysts Packers they provide to really understand given how critical funding is to you at this point. When you make a spend on advertising you want to maximize utilization of those dollars, and you want to optimize the marketing that you're doing and you do that by trying something at a low low level taking a small amount of dollars and testing it. And then looking at the analytics and comparing the analytics of your cost per acquisition of a of a consumer who comes to your site and versus the cost of getting getting that from some other source or mechanism. That's going to drive that traffic that's going to be really. Important for you. Because you've got limited marketing dollars, and budgets and limited time, you're a mother of six I don't even know how you're doing it. Limited resources both in the way of funds and time. And so you're to want to really make sure that everything you do and every spend you make is really optimized and using analytics to do it. And by the way, you know, there's information on how to use for example, Google analytics the simplest most readily available and it's free. You know, there's information out there everywhere. You wanna make sure you really really watch your analysts. And there's a thing called a conversion funnel that you really want to track everything against and that's where you create the awareness at the top of the funnel. And then as they move down the funnel. Ideally, hopefully toward a purchase at the bottom of the funnel. Their various things happening along that conversion funnel, you'll want to track very carefully and use your analytics, you know, very very carefully to do that. So listen, what are your goals with this business? Are you? At this point. You can't support yourself and your family from the business, but what your vision, where's all this headed? Well, once they get my other designs, they'll have three designs to choose from. And I hope sales will pick up possibly go to the home shopping network. And see if they're interested other little boutiques that I'm going to approach and so on that wholesale price to them. Of course, would love for the my buddy talented. Come like a household name. I've had it compared somebody told me this can be like the next snuggie. I hope the right? Well, that would be incredible for you. What about have you thought about PR public relations at all, you know, to tell your story? Mom of six says, a has a need solves the need creates the product of even just complicating what you have. So far is amazing. I think it would be incredible to have your story. Published out there more which would drive additional traffic awareness and traffic, you've got to get in the mom communities, you know, and and get that buzz going and having your story out, there might really create that awareness and create a greater sense of interest on behalf of consumers to want to do business with you because they relate to your story and want to support you. Yeah. That would sound great. Well, you can either create a press release of your own industry it or you can use a PR firm to do it. Again, funds are obviously a factor in all these things. But I would definitely recommend that you drive awareness. Online of your story. I think you could really sell against your story significantly do tell your story on your website, and you need to update the website. But yeah, I'm doing everything on my own. So especially since they just one this fifteen thousand dollars to put towards the business. I definitely want to put it to good use in a PR firm might be useful. I think it's great. I think you should also do you do a blog? I do not do a blog. You know, what that would also be great. You're a mom of six. You're a business owner, you're not scenario. You're an example to other people who would love to be in the position you're in. And they have the opportunity ahead of you that you do to have accomplished. What you have you should be blogging and inspiring others to to do what you're doing. It's really great. We've run out of time. But I love your story. I wish you the greatest success. And we'd love for you to check back with start nation one day and be able to tell us. How you've become the next. Snuggie. Sounds awesome. Thank you for having me. All right. Thank you. Angela myers.

I just got on Google trying to find something that would help her like be warm right after a bath. And I just thought my head there be great. If there was a full-body towel onesie. Yeah. So the way has happening. Well, let me just break this down. So you had a child who had a need and use a parent then had a need. You didn't want her using three towels? You wanted to be dry and comfortable in all all the rest after a bath. So you I went to go look for the product a product to solve a need that you had you wanted to buy the product at that point. You weren't thinking I'm going to start a business here. If you were just saying I need to solve a problem here. That's why everyone understand out there. This is kind of how this happens and the difference between those who end up starting a successful business. And those who don't first of all you, you know, you went looking for the need.

And but I don't have any business background or anything like that. So. My best friend. Isn't that amazing gets changed everything? It's changed. Everything. Anything you need to know at your fingertips. Right. That's right. And so you took the initiative you you went on your hunch. You took the initiative, and you started to research the marketplace you started to research hot make the product. I would assume again using Google you just did basic search.

"Could conversation before the weekend. I've been into team meetings with you so far you haven't spoken yet. You're the lead engineer in most of those meetings. Not speaking is unacceptable. So beginning Monday, you're on ninety eight probation for not speaking. Have a nice weekend. Then he came in on Monday said, here's the personnel papers, please sign them ninety day probation for not speaking subject to immediate dismissal. And then crude said, okay, in every meeting you will speak twice through your gone. I will ask you one question during the meeting, the other ones too. So his first person, even though I knew the that I didn't speak that it didn't work in life. His the first person had may get it. I think anybody who's I mean, if you say, who put you in your chair, somebody put you in their chair by giving you the back that you needed to get. There's like a law that was gonna DO your career, but somebody's got cure enough about you to say, no, not here. And if you think about meetings. If you look at run participation, so we will these tied to things high-performing jeans, broad participation in psychological safety, but how you can get broad participation when most people in this country walk into the room with a background thought, which is I don't have to speak if I don't feel like it. Now we're gonna come on that we're gonna tell the leaders of meetings don't call anybody 'cause it might be embarrassing. How's that working? You have no chance. Yeah, no chance. So people have got a dinner. Fi is something they need to get to work on in. Usually that means somebody they respect has got to say, don't do it. That's unacceptable. You gotta find a way to overcome this. I mean, I think people change dramatically if they once get. There's a cost here what a great boss to have to be able to provide that for you. I mean, look at the trajectory of your I mean your whole career when they have in this conversation. Yeah. Interesting. And you knew his intent. I mean, you clearly, it seems to me had a relationship where you knew his intent, wasn't the fire you, but it was to force you to an uncomfortable. Well, did you? I don't know. See he at that time he, he was just a jerk. Make stuff. That's right. Yeah. So don't make up stuff for your grandkids. Just going to wait. Well, so good point. Yeah. But he when he hired a a new person, he said six months, and I'm gonna decide whether we keep you for twenty years or not. So you get six months, and if I don't really want you for twenty years, we're gonna find a way for you to go somewhere else. So his mindset was. And he's going to confront anything that doesn't work, but he was a gentle little actually. That's a good story. I like it. Go ahead Leo now I think it's a, I think it's an amazing story. I think it speaks to. We had Angela Myers on our show actually a few times who gets into this whole issue of mattering and how much we need to understand how much I matter in in any conversation in any meeting or whatever on that your voice matters. And I think what you were being told by your bosses that as the lead engineer, your voice matters a lot. You know, in that situation that room and people are looking to you in a way that we're not always willing to own up to at certain parts of our life in once we accept that I'm outer and at my voice matters in are truly powerful in clearly you've been able to take that to a whole different level for sure. And think about now the number of people that benefit from that voice from the talks you give from the books you write for all of the things that. Have been the ripple effect of much more than just speaking those meetings at that company at a particular time, but the way that's played out for you and your life is rather extraordinary. So we're, we're all grateful for that just had it was working in Miami this weekend, the people who are working on all South American. There's a gentleman navy sixty.
