"Big changes. It's wise to be careful. The leaders of the town really felt like given that the coal mining is you said, laughed you know. Five decades before I arrived. So to the economic engine I mean Burnett. At the turn of the Sort of the early nineteen hundreds was vibrant community with an. Close eight thousand residents and when you know I came in two, thousand, four, hundred, probably twelve residents. So it's sort of you know not not unusual tale of rural decline and which we've seen lots of places in the world but really it was one that I could golf be. It's transformative engine and you know as I think about last year we employed over eight hundred people you know certainly you know it had that effect and that would have exceeded. All of our, I mean, the town fathers, Mine and Mike Wildest Dreams when we walked around us in the early years that we could do that as with bandon cabinet links begins to succeed because of an attention to detail getting the small stuff right and building sustainable relationships that means employing members of the community and keeping those employees. Happy. It means using restraint. And it means giving golf customers and unforgettable experience. Once. That foundations in place the rest logically follows. First comes the spectacular sequel Cabot cliffs, which Coren, crenshaw designed just up the road from the original course inverness is on the map and cabot links on the shortlist of best North American golf destinations and calendar wants to keep that feeling of creating going you know might told me when we met news. GonNa. Keep Building Golf course install a ran out of money or he died and he thought like get time on oath front. So Tried to follow that lead although I could I run out of money a lot sooner. So you know we'll see we'll keep keep trying. It's just there's nothing more funding the world. Than doing it being apartment Watson. Come to life and and I think you know the lasting legacy of inverness and watching you know our transformed people's lives the job. We've been able to reason why we did it originally a big part of why we do it today. So watching that and And I think you know trying to find right destinations that we can build amazing golf and And give equal that reason to go too far off magical license it turns out that there are more. Kaiser's looking to bring people to magical places I was I think eighteen when dunes opened a worked out there the summer of ninety nights but I spent tire childhood. Not full-time but on the Oregon coast, that's Michael Kaiser junior he grew up playing what he calls Wilderness Golf with his dad were they'd pick a tree in a field in play to it. The rest of golf came logically from there. So I have a lot of fun memories that say between Ninety One and when we opened eight years later spending weeks at a time exploring the land with. My Dad, my sister's hello less interest in Chris had just been born. But walking with shorty down who is the caretaker of the property that my dad Again, at that moment, it really was like wilderness golf right where anything is possible. There are holes every direction Michael Junior falls out of love with golf as a kid, and then back in love with that later on as his father's developments continue to grow and evolve here brother Chris Seven years younger get involved again. I got a new car maybe twenty seventeen and I wanna say. Twenty plus thousand miles on it in the first six months. So I've gotten very used that four hour drive in luckily early on somebody exposes beat it. In, podcast and books on tape that's Chris he lives in Chicago. But over the last several years, he spent a large chunk of his time and energy in the tiny town of Rome Wisconsin some four hours north. That's where he and Michael Junior took over development of Sand Valley the third dream. Golf site the Midwest answer to Bandon Cabinet. The for it was a golf course. San Valley was just a march sandy piece of land. The sand part was crucial. Wisconsin part more of a curveball. Simple recipe. Need that. Talked about talk maters. Architect Ocean, that's the kaiser recipe for a site. And they had the sand they had a stable of willing architects but was the site spectacular enough to offset the lack of ocean. It was time to find out. Mike and his sons decided to purchase some seventeen hundred acres in two thousand thirteen and immediately got to work bringing in core and crenshaw tags on the first course and valley. It would open in May two, thousand, seventeen a year after their design at Cabot cliffs opened it earned rave reviews. Corn. Crenshaw designed to part three course to called the sandbox which opened a year later. Just, a month after that mammoth dunes designed by David McLay kidd posted its first rounds. The resort came together fast and the Golfer soon followed the big trend is that warm more people are taking these buddy trips were trips. Trips. Participation at the local level is declining although that seems to have reversed itself during covet wherever golf was just taken off of. Volunteer. But certainly notice that the destination drip. As it's been thriving. The biggest trend that benefits us that allows us to continue. What we're doing golf I accused have gone through the roof because of podcast and retention that imagine security giving to. Architecture and I think our average. Our average guest has a far higher off accusing the May have thirty. Years ago. Ten years ago. And they expect thaw. From the developer in the golf experience, the food beverage. And hospitality experience. The expectations can be higher. At an all-time. And many of us are are competing in a friendly cooperative wait to live up to those expectations and hopefully. We work really hard exceed them. But if the success of Bandon dunes and cabinet links represented some theory of remote, Destination.

How Bandon Dunes revolutionized golf
"There aren't many golf courses in the world that are better than Bandon dunes but bannon's lasting legacy isn't as a golf course it doesn't idea. That north. America can have true links golf and even better that it can have remote golf courses that can turn into bucket lists destinations. Plenty of course have followed in. BANDON footsteps like cabot links to Nova Scotia or sand Bali and Wisconsin. It's a movement. But it sure didn't start that way. I'm to chair on today's drop zone. Here's how one course in nowhere Oregon turned into an entire movement all by accident. The story of Bandon, Dunes begins with David McLay Kidd A. Scottish. Twenty six year old who had dreamt of becoming a golf course architect but had no concrete path to making that happen. So back in nineteen ninety, four I was twenty six years old and working for the. Detail in Scotland My father was a the golf courses manager and I was working for the development division of. Detail effectively. And I was hating all the Gulf Bar and I was a wannabe golf course architect type I'd done a couple little things but nothing really of any note. And Mike Kaiser Have Franko Rick Summers who's the current owner of PGA Goldman? Zine And Mike said to rick SARS I've got this piece of land on the Oregon coast a WanNa build on authentic Scottish Irish links experience who you guys she'd higher I'm thinking of hiring you know told Vase Your Jack Nicklaus or Pete Dye or a Rick said will you should hire a Scottish golf course architect if you want something authentic in a Mike Chuckled and said, I, would but the old died one hundred years ago. At this point, it wasn't just mcclay kid who was an unknown the Golf World Mike Kaiser was to. He'd made his money by bringing a fresh mindset to the greeting card business decades before need proven to be a smart businessman. But. That doesn't guarantee any success as a wannabe course developer. As an outsider is first instinct might have been a hire a big name architect someone from the establishment to give his project credibility. But maybe he had it in the back of his mind that fellow outsider would be a more proper fit. So he invites David McLay kidd the remote site on the Oregon coast to check things out. and. So I arrived on the state. With my dad. So holding my hand and we will the sixteen hundred acres I remember. Mike Mike is wasn't there. I'd never ma'am yet. He's a caretaker shorty who even then in the seventeenth was our chaperone for the week. So David and his father walked the property with his caretaker shorty Dow and they're thinking themselves. What if you're doesn't know any better? What if he might hire a no name? But shorty keeps asking mcclay kids, business card and eventually he gives them one. In short, he pulls out a stack of cards. He's recently collected mcclay. Kid realizes that every major golf course architect has walked the same site and I realized that might Kaiser was pretty astute and he was he was looking at every possible option as an architect to do this. This set something off in mcclay kid if he's going to be an underdog, well, he may as well act like one. At that point I think I go a little a fire in my Bailey probably because I realized that this guy was never going to hire me I have anything to show I there was no way I was twenty six. So he's going to hire some big name but Hale I'm not going to leave here with my gender my chest I'm gonNA leave with my hailed high. So I went to the local drugstore I bought a dozen sheets of poster board and a few marker pains and I rule what would now be considered a powerpoint presentation. I did it on poster boards with a Marker Pens And Mike Kaiser flew in a few days later in his private jet with some of the executives from Cambridge sports and some of his buddies and I laid. half a dozen or dot com you remember no posterboards that told Mike Kaiser this rich guy from Chicago with a great piece of land, what it would take to build. A true authentic links course in America, and I did so with kind a little chip on my shoulder because I figured with my relatively limited knowledge of Link School Golf in America that there was nothing authentic I was told Pebble beach was a links course doesn't look like it to me I. I was told you know the latest Gulf course by whichever. PGA Pro you WanNa pick a that was in the mountains of southern California was a links course was the farthest thing from the truth. So when I painted I a scenario to Mike Kaiser I said, Hey, if you really want to build a true links course in America years, what it takes and I had a half a dozen points and there were absolutely critical. Such as. You can't have golf carts. There's no golf carts in the British isles, you walk. There's no fancy clubhouse I on the ocean. That's where you put the best green. The clubhouse is back in a corner. The base land is Gulf. The fairways aren't flat. They're pitching in tumbling. There aren't any lakes. There's no babbling streams. There's no car pass. The grasses we use these old style firm grasses van may even have told him there's no arrogation. Can't quite remember what if I said none on a of the bunkers aren't these or MIBA Cloverleaf shapes there these pulp bunkers. Are there to punish the bowl not to Be Up on the week. And as I went through this explanation of links Gulf. Mike had a wry smile on his face and in his. Cohorts laughed openly I load at the ridiculousness of such thought in the sophisticated Gulf market of the United States. I assume that when my father and I left the very next day, we would never hear from Mike Kaiser Regain are crazy Scottish ideas of goal in America were just that while. American. Goal for would traits all the way to the southern. Shores to play golf in the wind and rain and walk and find themselves in eight. Pulp on Kerr surrounded by facie grasses and pitching fear waste were not a single flat lies available such a scenario could never ever work.

So that was called action not with the mouth, but in actual fact. We did a very, very good job when we put that ban on whether you call the talent or luck, it was very important.

"Hello, everyone. Welcome to the addicted mind podcast. My guest today is Eddie Capela Rucci and he is going to talk about inner child, work and sex important addiction Eddie please introduce yourself. Hey dwayne. Thank you for having me on the show. Really appreciate that as you say, I am and he kept route yummy counselor professional counselor I have a private practice in Marietta. Georgia. With my wife. Carrie I specialize in the treatment of sex and pornography addiction at I've been doing it for about ten years. Now, I also am the administrator of two websites and that is Meghan porn and secretary pure men, and I just have a real passion having juggled through this myself. I have gone passion for helping individuals to be able to overcome this in their area of one to wave that you. Grew something dead I created called the inner child recovery process which back you childhood main point because I really believe the road to recovery or diction goes to our childhood. Awesome I. think that's so true when we look at addiction in general, there's a lot of roots of childhood trauma and pain that kind of feeds the addictive process. So tell me a little bit about your story and how you how you kind of stumbled into working with I guess inner child work can, and we'll talk about about what that means and and go into more detail but I'd I love to hear your story okay by storing, your star with a young boy. Father. died when I were by. My mother's left with four children I would say third oldest. After passed away, my mother had a nervous breakdown. And all of a kid were sent out to relative that we didn't know and stayed there for about a year or she recovering and that we are brought back after she thought you ready but she wasn't she had another breakdown and got sent out again. But now doubt the give relatives each of us, the four went to several our own ways. So we weren't. Even with our siblings Dow other people who I don't really know are there for about three months before finally we come back and she gave a bit solidify family but again, a young KNOB orcades, mid sixties, nineteen sixties, and trying to raise us at I had two older sisters. So they were the ones who are always looking after me and basically as you can. Imagine sisters who are your sixteen of Nineteen they don't really want be dealing with a seven-year-old boy. They WANNA be listen their American band fan and things like that. So I found myself very isolated quite a bit of a child yogurt on my own and ask got older and I did become eventually removed in my mom remarried and we've moved into a neighborhood that. Had quite a few friends that were there. But when he did was it already set the stage for me. You suffer with an abandoned gives order an attachment disorder at Delaware, my Bandon, and I didn't know that at the time of course but I started to date when I was about sixteen when I came to understand that only having one girlfriend was never enough. I needed more I was soon to later find out what that was about was I needed to backup plan because the abandonment issue that meant that you know my world view of my inner child was a the people who love you or review. Again not knowing that are just thinking. Okay. Addresses shift me I like girls. Continue to chase them.
"So we did they ll the videos out yet a hope maybe by the end of the week I've been. Kind of lazy this last week. there's other things going on but. We did the prototype chair. And I was in a hot debate with myself on whether or not to add the embellishments to that chair or leave it as it is because it's I thought it looked kind of cool as it is, but I also wanted to do these other things to it. And I made the decision to leave it as is. So that video is complete, just got to shoot the ending in. Put that out and then I had started but not gotten very far on version number two I have this beautiful walnut slab and I'm not really in slab furniture. So I'm going to cut it up into pieces and I can resell it, and I can get the the legs in the seat out of it and I kind of home the design a little bit more so it doesn't look so. it looks cool but there's a there's a computer Drawing element to it that kind of boats may so I? I just kinda redrew it just a little bit. To get rid of it, give it some more I guess Pachuco feel to it and then. For the owls if you I mean nobody's seen this. So but the most of it is made up of of dowels and on the second one I use PVC pipe, it is such a cheap option and I was. For a little bit, Kinda wanted to do a stainless steel and get too expensive and maybe it's too cold and the alternative to that was conduit electrical conduit, which is also super cheap. You get like a ten foot thing for four bucks or whatever. and then settled for the PVC. 'cause it's going to have like a brilliant white up against this walnut Look good. So starting with that, and the problem with this one is a totally fail because the slab have has we're grain in it. and. Then you know whenever you cut into that, it could just twist and bandon turned into a single chip. So hopefully, it doesn't. So That's Canada now and Yeah I'm happy. I'm happy with the design I. I. I e fumbled a little bit or a Kinda. Where your bottom sits on there, I fix curbed a little bit and then the back is I move the curve down just a little bit just to make it a little bit more comfortable. It's still I don't think it's going to be a chair that you wanNA, sit in for hours. Because there's no cushion. It's just kind of forms to your body. But as a dining chair, I think it will work just fine. It's like a starbucks chapter like the starbucks chairs look really comfortable in about three or four minutes in you're like. They, do that on purpose so you don't stay in there. was going to say about furniture is one of the designed chairs I know my own personal experiences you never know if you've made the right decision that insecurity will sit with you forever might mice stools with you Built it will haunt you forever because every time I sit in my stool I made four of those those made full more for customers. I was very anxious to send out hoping that they would be happy with the result, but that's the way I am with anything that I ever make for customer I'm always anxious fulfilled their expectations. But by stools, I've made three of them made for them. Three of them are here at my house. One of them's entails design studio and I was sitting in last night and the whole time I'm sitting in my mind is just an autopilot maybe the foot rungs to love maybe the former inkster high, maybe the the the the but is too low maybe the butts to hide maybe why I grabbed on my fingers, it could have been thin. I can't stop it. So it's the same thing like when you're sitting in your run chair show you having very similar experience. You just can't stop let you can did I make the right decisions one hundred percent I might my personal thought was if I can sit in this chair without thinking about sitting in this chair than I know a I've done it right but I Without, judge without feeling without trying to figure out where to go next it's I. Don't know if I'll ever get to that point.
How the coronavirus is changing golfs future
"I'm here with Josh Sense. And Josh tell me about the trip that you just got back from you after sheltering in place for a couple of months down here in the bay area. I was lucky to drive up the coast highway one. Oh one to bandon dunes about a nine hour trip to see the sheep ranch. Which is the big news. New Opening of two thousand and twenty so I got to play of course and then make the nine hour drive back. What's your fifteen seconds review of sheep? Ranch Eye Candy Galore an Instagram irs. The light and a really cool course I personally would place it third best of the five. But that's part of the beauty abandoned his that everybody's got their own opinion and it sometimes changes day by day aright high praise but the larger point here. Josh. This means that golf is back in not just know golf down the street but destinations a place like bandon dunes. What was the feel up there? There I mean it was. It was quiet quiet by Bandon dunes standards but if you've been abandoned dunes especially this time of year in a normal year it is just jammed. Overflowing the pub- you know riotous and the whiskey bar the bunker bar crammed and the t she jammed. It was quieter but there was a sense of excitement around the sheep ranch. There allowing limited play thirty two golfers a day and all thirty two slots were taken every day. So there was activity on the property. All the employees and masks people trying to practice social distancing as best as everybody could But definitely it's slower than you would normally see it in on a May Day. Yeah well the reason I wanted to talk to is not just because you've been up to Bandon but because you've been making a bunch of phone calls Trying to figure out okay. How is all this going to affect the future of golf and from my perspective? It's it seemed like a lot of things surrounding this to have a lot of contradictions. Because encouraged to stay indoors on the other hand. They're encouraged to go outside and get fresh. Air and golf provides that are a lot of recreational sports out there but few can comply with the social distancing guidelines like golf can and that's why Courses Shadow hills are booked all day on the one hand. It seems like more golfers than ever would have the opportunity to get outside and take advantage of golf courses on the other hand. It seems like businesses and small businesses everywhere are really struggling so I wanted to pick your brain a little bit about a few of the details and I'll start with this. Will this entire thing in your opinion changed the way Golf Looks? I think it. Will you know I think it has to change? Something in the question is are we looking macro or micro sort of in the broad scheme you've gotta figure there's going to be a little bit of a calling that some of the courses that entered this crisis with what you might call pre existing conditions that had dead on their land or already on the edge financially? It's not hard to imagine some of them closing at the same time. There could be silver linings where all sorts of other clubs that are in different positions financially and in different places in the country. So I mean that's that's another point when you talk about what golf is GonNa look like a lot of it is going to be going to depend on. What kind of course you're talking about private public high end low end municipal and where it is in the country whether people can drive to it or if they have to fly to it in terms of the day to day. I don't know Dylan you've been out. Of course there are some. There's a differences. Obviously no no rakes in the bunkers discourse. We're going to record three hundred plus t times for one day as for the you can't be high five in your partners. You can't hang around the parking lot. We've got the tape lined off to keep you separated the novell washers. No-ball washers wear masks when you're checking in around the clubhouse all those precautions but in my experience playing off the game itself has not felt substantially different to me anything. It's felt better. People were playing with a little more dispatch a little spring in their step. They're leaving the flagstick in things improving the pace of play as well
"On today's show. I'm talking to Michael British fine photographer. Best known for his images of black and white landscapes. His work has been displayed. All over the world he has permanent exhibitions in the Museum of Decorative Arts in the Victorian Albert Museum in London National Gallery of art in Washington. Dc and in the Bibliotheque in Paris. Let's dive straight into my conversation. Ninety nine percent of your photographs are square format black and white images as far as I know and you have been doing that for for for more than forty years. So how on earth does one stay motivated and keeps shutting mainly landscapes in the same format for for such a long time. Good Morning Tom. Shannon Seattle you're in Switzerland so it's a slightly different time zones. I'm very interested statistic of ninety nine percent that you could be ninety seven point seven five. I don't ask much well. You know I I started with many different is many different. Cameras experimented with the panoramas in thirty five millimeters horizontal eight by ten four by five. Lots of different ones for the first ten years. I I use thirty five millimeter. I found as often happens when using the same camera over and over it becomes to be predictable which is has the pros aide also has comes because you tend to get little trapped into those formats and I moved into the two and a quarter medium in the mid eighty s purposely to break up my rhythm essentially on now used a waist level finder so everything was back to fronton slimy upside down and made photographing a little more difficult. And I think that is one of the keys to photography generally is that we don't want to get too comfortable at anyone at any one time. Now I've been using this camera on off since the mid eighties so yes thirty years thirty years to great camera at the same time. I've experimented with different other formats die off news holders little cheap plastic cameras I often feel that the camera has very little do to do with the photographic journey just happens the hassle but I use is is is really a utilitarian quite precise but very basic camera. It comes with his basic functions of Lens Body Film back Viewfinder and those are interchangeable. So if they break down I can replace them days. I can old lawn mower for me. I I know the camera very well. I don't think it has much to do with the camera in terms of one's passion for photography. I think it has much more to do with one's in a drive to discover to be curious to constantly be investigated and explorer I can see you know using the same camera for the next two hundred years and finding sufficient material to keep you motivated for many lifetimes. That never been an issue with me. There are so many places so many countries so many things to photograph them. I just look at that. I I just don't ever see it as an issue kind of the lack of inspiration for me. It is much more a matter of trying to rein in all the divergent diverse. Numerous different possibilities and I hope that that is for everyone is just life is so amazing the Janica so amazing though so many fantastic places to go photographs that it's difficult for me to understand kind of the lack of inspiration lack of drive. I think there's so much out there when you talk about the cameras you actually answered my question. You know which I have prepared for later so because I can imagine that Photographic equipment itself. You know camera. Lenses are relatively low exactly on your personal credit but in order to pursue a certain vision certain look or simply a similar format of images to choose photographic gear accordingly right. I think it means to me. It would make sense to us a digital camera with all these bells and whistles for example. It's just not my character. Ibkr semi old is like an old guitar. I've been playing these niyaz years. Yes go into electronics. Thrall Bandon all these other things but when it comes down to the instrument you're using it needs to be a part of your body almost a part of your creative function. I have no interest in the GADGETRY. A as such Simpler the better for my way of working but that is just me and as you say. Everybody has to choose their own instrument of communication so for some people it is drones and and various new cameras on techniques. And and that's perfectly fine. It just doesn't fit with my way of working. What was it that extended to you about this square format? You are mainly known for square format images. Right I would think so at this point. Yes but certainly wasn't the first ten years of Korea because I did use it. What fascinates me? I think it is. It is for me. An Open universe I don't find that. I am confined as with most other. Formats such as thirty five millimeter. In which as I mentioned you already have to make decisions of whether they should be horizontal vertical. And how do I fit things into this rectangle with a square you'll basically playing with four equal sides and so you can compose accordingly? I still have the option often. Use it to crop lighter not necessarily into scored. If you actually look at work I do. Not many of them are real scores. A slightly horizontal slightly vote to goal. Sometimes I make score into a panorama either vertical or horizontal. So for me. It just gives me an enormous amount of flexibility. Would you say Composing Square format? Composing Damages is in a way easier or is it just more open. I mean like you know gives you more options. I think it gives you more options. I don't think it's either. Easier are more difficult. I think it's just another possibility. And how about black and white. Because again I I would be hard pressed. I think to to recall a color image of yours. Only commercial only commercial work. I just can't find. I have a proclivity towards the monochromatic spectrum. So most of the work that I that I appreciate his monochromatic. Black White again. It's it's just a personal thing. I've often say that we we see in color all the time. That's how world so when you reduce something to black and white. It immediately becomes more of an interpretation. It's mysterious or more calming offer. Me More meditational almost often use the the the the reference to writing and I said I prefer to be more of a Haiku poem we just a few elements of simplicity but a great amount of suggestion as opposed to an insight encyclopedia with huge amounts of facts and description. That is not what I'm interested in doing road Does happen at all these days for you that you you know using whatever it might be Shoot some color images while not seriously I mean I recently finally came around to getting one of these smartphone things so I can take snaps of wherever I go in. Another polaroid doesn't exist this. Icu very useful. Because it tells me what I am when I go back later to Reference Place so yes. I photograph in color just to make snacks. But it really doesn't interest me very much into the first thing I do is converted back into a white to see what it looks like. I just find black and white enables you to use your imagination much more than color. But it's a personal thing in one of your interviews from from several years ago. I guess you said there are great photographs by ordinary photographers and ordinary photographs by great photographers. Smart knows days so let me ask you. You know for your own. Very subjective opinion. How often does Michael Kenna manage to to produce a great photograph? I'm still trying haven't got one yet but one of these days. That's an impossible question because you could never put out to the description of one of your own photographs are you are you. Are you happy own photography? Never an I don't think one should be Yes contend that I'm on this wonderful journey as being an amazing Expedition But I. I don't think anybody should ever be satisfied with what they do want. You be striving. You know there's this you know. My favorite football team has Everton and they have this motto. It's called nil. Satis newsy optimum which wanting means nothing but the best is good enough so you give your best all the time. You strive for perfection all the time but hopefully you never reach it because if you reach perfection the the image probably would interesting is one of the things I resist with. The digital revolution is that is so easy to make things so perfect so clean so tidy that they kind of lose the ability to To evoke a reaction to evoke emotion it becomes a little antiseptic. I think So affect Striving for perfection is wonderful. But but I don't think I've ever reached out ever. Will I hope

"And I was reading some things you said you said that the figured if it's the fifth or the sixth the beer, it's whole their Schori cres was your favorite beer, is that you ever saw that. Right. That is true in particular because it's like most beer Ritz sites. It's totally flat. And it's just a wonderful green with this. Trough running through the front of it. And it's fun at short occurs because we can't the membership can't decide whether to ever pin the front half or not. It's an ongoing debate head. It's it's probably the favorite one that I've ever seen. It felt like the widest one in gives you plenty of space to actually find it. So we'll first off. I usually I start with questions, but I gotta tell you a story. I so back about six years ago used to work for a big four accounting firm, and I needed to pass my CPA exam in order to get a promotion, and I failed many many many times in doing so and my dad dangled a trip out to Bandon dunes. You finally if you finally pass this thing, we will go to Bandon dunes. That was the magic formula that I finally passed and ended up moving to Amsterdam and kind of changed my life after that. So for that I have to credit you, and I've sure you've told the story a million times about about Bannon. But I I kind of want to dive into where you learned the game and your golf biography before the development of Bandon. So I learned the game as a caddy and player at the age of eight nine ten eleven twelve at the Easter country club a really mediocre nine hole. Vary league, of course, which I thought was the best thing I had ever seen at the age of eight nine ten eleven twelve a tip of typical day consisted of caddying, if we were lucky for nine holes playing nine or eighteen holes in having a big juicy club burger, I did that for five years, and that that hooked me on golf that was that was my main beginning those five years. Wow. Is that good? I wish I I wish every boy and girl could do the same thing. Well, and I'm not sure if the if this question has the answer this question is changed since Bannon open. But I kinda wanna go back to the time again still before banner even before the dunes club, which I believe you built in around eighty fives that sound right. Yeah. That's about right. I wanna know. What were the what were the golf courses are golf experiences? You had up to that point that. Had had the biggest impact on you. So my guide first of all. Chris was. The Gulf that just tap hundred. I couldn't believe that that book existed. Someone gave it to me or I found it. I don't know how I ran across it. But that became the bible to make because I don't eat play at buffalo at courses like Easter country club and had no idea that there was a hundred best golf courses in the world. So that was my guide. That led me to what so many of your listeners deal with how do you get on one of the tap ten or tap, twenty golf courses? I when I was able to get on due to friends was Marian, which I thought was just unbelievable. I it was sort of an epiphany. I been playing these mediocre golf courses in most golf courses are mediocre and here, I was at Marian this cathedral of golf, and that was my number one until I got an pine valley. And then I understood why pine valley was better than Marian. Those those those two together even though I was from Chicago at the time in Philadelphia are the ones who turned me onto golf course architecture, and and then then it's just a matter of you know, how many can you get on and play and see and do your own ranking. So I was sort of a born rancor, which I think most most of your listeners are probably the same thing. How do we get on these tap? Twenty golf courses. And that's kind of where I wanted to go next with that is all the courses. I believe that you've developed are all public access courses. So you know, as coming up in golf in seeing how maybe a difficult..
What the Jobs Market Means for the Economy
"So the jobs market. This is a part of the economy where we often really feel the economic ups and downs the most I mean think about it not just whether or not you have a job. But even if you have a job, are you worried all the time that you're gonna lose it? Are you worried that you'll never get a raise? And it's very often. Also, a part of the economy that softens before an economic downturn. So look at the labor market we called up Heidi sheer Holtz. She's the director of policy at the Economic Policy Institute in. Washington and Heidi says within the labour market, there are three indicators she likes to look at that. In the past have been very predictive of what the economy was going to do next. So one is the what is known as the quits rate. It's the rate of people voluntarily quitting their job. So when people have found job or confident about their ability to find another job, they are willing to quit the job that they have if they're not happy in the job that they have. And so it's interesting when the economy is stronger that quits rate goes up when the economy is starting to slow down when people are not seeing other good prospects out there the quits rate starts to edge down. How'd you says win the quits rate starts to down? It can be predictive of an economic downturn. The job market starts tightening companies aren't hiring as much there's trouble in the water. So when it comes to the quits rate right now. Now, the indicator is saying very much an expansionary territory. It's continuing to rise. We are not seeing any kind of sign that that quits rate is going down or or even leveling off. Nice. People are quitting with the Bandon. I quit. Yeah. Telling their bosses where they can take those jobs in shove them, I can have Cardiff Garcia to push around anymore. And all that quitting is actually a great sign for the economy, no signs of slowing down. So that is the first indicator that Heidi likes to look at Heidi second recession predictor in the job market is employment in temporary help services like temp agencies like betas. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. And so when a company starts to see slowing demand for its goods and services and wants to shed workers, the first workers that they're going to shed are their temporary workers. And so the first sign of loss of. Appointment often comes up in the decline in employment temporary health services. Heidi says temps are often kind of like a canary in the labor market coal mine because there's no commitment when it companies budget gets tight or demand for whatever it's making goes down. It can just back off hiring temps before it starts doing things like laying off workers and Heidi says that right now the temp job market is telling us employment in temporary help services is just continuing to grow along with the the rest of employment in the economy. I two out of three or showing great economic growth. But there's a third one. Yeah. Indeed, the final indicator that Heidi looks at has to do with how many hours people are working looking at average weekly hours is the same kind of logic that if businesses are starting to see demand for their goods and services drop off in a way, that might make them worried wanna be pulling back one of the first things they may do is instead of. Firing workers just cut back their hours. So the average weekly hours indicator is telling us if you look at average weekly hours of all employee's. It's just been pretty darn stable for years now. So all three indicators from the labor market are looking good. But what exactly does that mean? Looking good like for how long are we talking about a year month? How long do I think that buys us like an assurance that? There's no, yeah. That yes. How long have we got doc? No. So I think the assurance is, you know. Leeann that's a good question. I would think. Ok okay. So I think that that means there's an assurance of at least maybe half a year that these that we're not going to see a recession half a year. Okay. Cardiff may of twenty nineteen same time same place. Same indicators. Yeah. I'll be there..

They won the second half twenty five three like they killed Nevada. I was only given six and a half points. They were.

She Bill builds business using word of mouth, best pack practices, and she hosts a podcast inter free time when is free time and best off, I'm proud to call her my friend, welcome Virginia. That was the most lame. As long as introduction I've ever heard. But you're here. So let's just get it started. I'm here, so let's do it. I love it. I love it. So tell me why I hate networking so much, and while you're so good at it, why do you hate networking? Well, why do don't allow to say to somebody say to somebody. Going to a networking meeting and or I'm going to networking armed going to even somebody might say, and I'm gonna say this directly to you since you're since you're majorly involved with BNI God, one of those things come on seriously. I really need to go to that and use it, and I'm and I'm saying that with all the love in my heart, but what, what do you say in return to somebody that says something like that. Melik it just it isn't really for everybody. What I do isn't for everybody. I mean, some people prefer SEO some people like using social media and some people like using funnels, and it just depends on who you are as a person and what it is that you want to accomplish. So let me just start here. Why would you want to do something like the an eye or something like the the programs, my coaching programs, like my referrals on demand program or my referral alliance program? Well, here's a thing. So most people run what I call referral algorithms and it looks like this, you say my back hurts. Do you know a good chiropractor? And I say, yes, my chiropractor Dr. Crystal, should I have her call you? And you say why? Yes, Virginia, thank you. And I called Krystal and I say, call Doug. Right? So that's what most people do if they're even remotely good at referring. Actually, what most people do is they play business card poker, they run. Around throwing their business cards around and then hope and pray that maybe somebody calls them everything that they collect, they like put on their autoresponder, start spamming everybody right and left. And that's really a relationship BUSTER in nobody is going to do business. And I think that that's what's given networking such a bad name, but but it's the rarity. It's the rare exception where somebody says my back hurts, and then I say, while great, I have a great chiropractor. Her name is Dr. Deb, let would you like me to get her to call you. I mean, it never goes to that. It always gets goes to all. Here's her name and number check her out, you know. And that's like one step short of its once better than than a cold call, but it's but it's at the same time. It's like now you're letting letting the behavior of the person that you're giving the referral to all the power. And I hate right because they never do anything. Right. Well, there's one step even below that, right? Which is all really care about your damn back. Doug, you wanna buy my life insurance. Oh, I got it. So you aren't there for the chiropractor. You were actually there to sell life insurance, and I'm here to sell life and I'm a life insurance and you're saying my back hurts Dino.

Yes, I think about this all the time because I like never finished my gate, but the thing is, I don't think so because if literally just one fight is between you and the end of the game, I feel like you have experienced. Okay. But what if there's a big story beat after that fight? So using devil with parasite, eve, right? I actually got up to her like many forms of the boss, but the very, very last one head like some issue with my weapons or whatever, and I just could not for the life of may get passed it. So all I did honestly just one on YouTube, but I hate looking at an, but this was like a dude. I know I'm going to slave over this for like several more hours. I don't think it's worth it. I just I feel like I played literally ninety nine percent of the. Yeah, I think it's okay to if you want to just look at the ending, if you're like, this is just not going to happen, it's not worth it. Actually, that happened to me and the first Arkham game Arkham asylum, because the final, there's a final fight with a mutated joker, and it was just awful, an awful fight. And I was like, I think I've had enough and someone actually, when I asked about this on Twitter, someone had the same exact Syrians. I felt vindicated. Mutated joker. Yeah, because it's a very annoying boss fight vindication. That game is good though. Yeah, I feel like if I mean we had people emailing, Evan, who try their backlog games and then ditch the master two hours if they're not into them. So I feel like I feel like you can say with a game, especially if you've tried it, it's out of your backlog. You've crossed that hill, at least that's how that's going to be my personal assessment. I feel like to like you guys, especially Ashley your point of like if you just get to the very last part. Art, but like even basically saw all the game. Okay. I'm not not that I love bioshock, but let's talk about that. Oh. Don't if you don't get to the scene in the first bioshock but you've still played most of the game. But I mean, it's that's in the middle half like that's the first half of the game. If you don't get if you play three hours of bioshock near and you never fail figure out what Jack I'm saying, I guess, I guess because then if you went into a conversation and you're like, oh yeah, I've played by Sean, but on a metal level that would require you not spending years, not knowing that there's a twist coming and you clearly know that a big story beat is going to happen in code or after this boss battle. So I think that kind of changes the context where you're not gonna come into a conversation with someone and be like, oh yeah, I've played Kodo and they'll be like, oh, what about the thing? And you're not going to be like what the oil by me by another friend. So that's also never wanted to shit. I think view that is like the chances of you doing a one eighty in deciding that you like bioshock dispatch. Fight, say, say you played like three hours of new really didn't like it. I feel like that story or narrative twist isn't necessarily. I mean maybe for some people, but I feel for most it won't really win you over. You know what I mean? That I feel like if you don't like say, if it's the mechanics or the aesthetic or something like that, you know and it's not really vibe ING with you. I feel like despite whatever happens, it's like you don't feel good playing the game. You're not going to appreciate the twists that come up later. But yeah, to your point, Simone, I totally agree. If you get to a point in, you have like form some sort of coherent opinion. I feel like then you can safely Chuck it off, your backlog. Yeah, definitely..
