John Berlau Describes Sam Bankman-Fried's Well-Connected Family
"Bikeman free. I mean, this is, let's start with him. And I love your analysis there with a theranos issue which, by the way, I think is we are taping this is getting has been sentenced to prison time and all for what was going on with that. But I think it's an interesting analogy. How did someone of his age and I'm not taking back from age? I got no problem with somebody with great ideas. I don't care what your age is making a lot of money and but how did it go in a special industry such as this? Besides the democratic donor base besides some of the other stuff that they were throwing out a lot of money it places. One, how did he gain the money? I guess the thought that many people have. And then how did it become so quickly marketable in the political world? And then because there's reports that, you know, this issue has, you know, Ukrainian legs back to democratic donors. I mean, there's just all kinds of things going on here. Give us a little in front about him if you can. Right. Well, he is a pretty book smart guy and also smart at making social connections, but there's a saying knowledge doesn't even equal wisdom. But it also certainly helped the fact that he had prominent parents that his name is Sam bankman fried Barbara fried, headed to Silicon Valley pack that gave to democratic donors. And. Also his father, Joseph bankman, helped, according to fortune, draft tax legislation for senator Elizabeth Warren. So, I mean, basically Kevin O'Leary, mister wonderful on Shark Tank said, well, of course I trust him because his parents are compliance attorneys, but something to the effect. I'm paraphrasing what could go wrong. That's like trusting the biker with all the ingredients and never watching because nobody ever would think the biker would put something in there, you know? Exactly. Trust but verify as Ronald Reagan said in everything in politics and in business.
Glenn Kirschner Sheds Some Light on Special Counsel Jack Smith
"So let's get to the big question. Because we've been flailing without you as you know. Ever since the appointment of Jack Smith, who apparently is not the guy in the matrix, he puts on sunglasses. I think he is. But no, it's a different guy. Different guy. Okay. But Glenn, I think it was Barbara mcquaid, I saw on TV first that said, you know, the Justice Department wouldn't be doing a special prosecutor if they weren't going to indict. If they were going to decline. So, you know, and then everyone from tally nostalgia was like, this is no Jill wine banks initially said this is a waste of time and money. And you and I have been obviously impatient for justice for a long time and my first thought is, why isn't an indictment? Why is it, you know, yet another step. But, you know, it takes me a second to calm down. But just a little. But I think we all have Mueller fatigue, right? We think, oh God, are we starting all over again, blah, blah, blah. And a lot of people have pointed out how Lawrence tribe and others that they think this will speed it up and not slow it down. Dying to get your take on it because I do get that it's different a bill Barr's not in charge, it's not Trump's Justice Department. He is not starting from scratch, but give us your whole overview on this. Yes, Steph, I wish we had an hour. There's so much to unpack. And we do have, we have superhero fatigue. We thought bob Mueller was going to come in and take Trump out. His report did take Trump out the problem is Congress and the Department of Justice didn't act on the crimes that bob Mueller documented in volume two of the Trump Russia report. We thought Merrick Garland was going to come in and do what was necessary. It turns out in hindsight, Merrick Garland turned out to be too much judge and not enough prosecutors. So I am not prepared to say Jack Smith is galloping in on the white horse and he's going to take care of all this. However, first thing I did was I talked to all my Friends and former colleagues who worked with or for Jack Smith. I don't know Jack personally, to a person, they can not speak highly enough of his determination to hold criminal politicians accountable. Without regard to politics or criticism or fear of failure, here's why I really like the appointment of Jack Smith. We can do an autopsy on whether Merrick Garland should have appointed a special counsel. There are good arguments on both sides, but I think the bottom at the bottom of it all wants Trump announced he was a candidate. Let's face it, Merrick Garland is Joe Biden's attorney general. So to have Joe Biden's attorney general going after Joe Biden's only announced political opponent in the 2024 election, I believe, left Merrick Garland, no other choice but to appoint a special counsel.

Ray J Is Angry Over Kardashian Sex Tape Denials and Accusations
"Ray J is upset and rightfully so, 'cause the Kardashians are not only painting them out to be a lawyer by saying the sex tape was all set up. Me and Kim went through her mom.

He says, it's not about them having sex in Santa Barbara. Kim and Kris Jenner are so afraid of that tape, because now she's a mom. She's got four kids now.

She started crying on a show, but I want my kids saying this, it turns out it's all a lie. The person that people who own Rolex said, that could never happen. They would never be an ad for a porn tape on our system. It's just a lie. They got caught in that line. Here's what really got RJ upset. He wants to sue them for a comment that she made on her show. In which she says, cover the kid's ears, I'll wait, in which she says that ray J may have stuck something up her butt while she was sleeping. Now he got furious about this. It was the first episode of the show. Where Kim was fretting about, there might be no sex tape. She's fretting because there's one in the bank somewhere. She told her family she's 99% sure there wasn't one, but then she said, if there was anything sexual another tape, ray may have stuck a sex toy. I'll she would sound this lead. And that might be what we're all treated to on the next tape. Frankly, I don't want to see it.

Barbara McQuade: Trump Making Peaceful Remarks Is 'a Real Threat'
"Barbara one of the things that stuck out from Trump's lawsuit is a message that Trump attorney had for high ranking Justice Department official and a call days after the search Quote president Trump wants the attorney general to know he has been hearing from people all over the country about the raid if there was one word to describe their mood it is angry that heat is building up The pressure is building up and whatever I can do to take the heat down to bring the pressure down just let us know If you were working Barbara in the Justice Department and got that message what would you make of it All day yesterday and all day today These frauds phonies and buffoons Took that and twisted it It was a warning don't you know that the Department of Justice that they either back off or there's going to be violence Is that what it sounded like to you America Is that not preposterous Sounded to me like given the attacks on Donald Trump over January 6th even though he made an affirmative statement To be peaceful he was making an a very very affirmative statement here That he wanted to help defuse the anger that was obviously existent in the country No no no you don't understand Go ahead It is a veiled threat that they're suggesting that you feel threat And I speak as a former U.S. attorney And I know what I'm talking about

You Can't Have Good Intentions Without Understanding the Consequences
"I think public health schools, for the most part, produce spectacularly stupid people. Barbara Ferreira is a perfect example in the county I live Los Angeles County.

So the question I'm asking this week is from the position from the point of view of the business owner who wants to know is my age and advantage or a disadvantage. You're looking at me. I'm looking at you. What are you looking at? Yes. Well, I started in business pretty early. I graduated from high school with a 1.1. And I'm proud that I made it through high school. I'm kind of off the charts. Every successful businessman has a story like this, right? I wish I wish I could be. And then he sells. He never cracked a book once and four points. Yeah, yeah. Anyway, just drove me nuts. Okay. Anyway, not my problem. But my folks let me get into business at age 16. And I started singing professionally. Singing, singing.

From Nixon to Trump: Is Donald Relying on Watergate Precedent?
"Jamie Raskin said he doesn't intend to browbeat Merrick Garland, but he noted the committee has already laid out in legal pleadings criminal statutes that they believe Donald violated. I think he knows his staff knows the U.S. attorneys know what's at stake here. They know the importance of it, but think that he thinks they were rightfully playing paying close attention to precedent in history as well as the facts of the case. I agree with that. But we can't Nixon got away with it. And this led to Donald Trump, I think. Yeah. I'm watching Watergate because the 50th anniversary of the break in is this year. Is this month, I think. And so there's a lot of stuff right now and gas lit just ended yesterday. So good. The guy that plays Lydia is fantastic. Yes. So I mean, this is watching that and just kind of, because I was little at the time, I was just a weird little 5 year old. But Nixon did get away with it. And on Barbara mcquade and Joel wine banks is hashtag sisters in law podcast. They were banting about should criminal charges be brought and the importance of that not happening just means then people are above the law. Right. And proving it in the court of law is different than I really do feel as much as Adam Schiff doesn't think it's happening and I respect him like crazy. I do think they're investigating it. It would be remiss of them not to. 100% believe that they are. You know, and Garland is very good at being quiet about things. And I like that about him. And he's conservative so the fact that he has brought up seditious conspiracy charges for such a conservative DoJ. That's a big charge. That's a huge charge. It's almost impossible to prove, so I think that because he's doing that, he is going. He's looking into what Donald knew and when he knew it. And it looks like the committee has set the stage for Donald's defense not to work going on in no.

Gas Prices Reach Record Highs, Again
"A new marker yesterday gas is hit $4 a gallon in all 50 states. In California, $6 and 29 cents a gallon for regular. I'm thinking about someone stuck on the 55 and the 91 coming in from Marino valley over to the coast or someone coming down from Santa Barbara or the one O one into LA and certainly those very long commutes up into the city or Silicon Valley, $6 and 29 cents a gallon. You know, yesterday, Joe Biden invoked the defense production act for baby formula to make it easier to make baby formula. I think he should invoke the defense production act to make more gasoline. Does anyone ask him that in the press corps I'll ask Michael to share that. You know, it was a big deal. The DNP, the DPA, defense production act for baby formula. Why not the DPA for gasoline?
"barbara" Discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast
"Even today? I think they do because there's still a lot of prejudice where people say they're not strong enough. They can't do this or yeah, they're still prejudice, not as bad, but there is still prejudice. Yeah, well, I've also heard it the other way too. We're female riders. A lot of trainers like to use them because they feel like they have a nurturing instinct that comes through with the horses and the horses respond to them better than male riders and somebody else is. And I think they've seen that through the years. So at first they didn't believe it, but then as it went on, they could see that horses really did respond better. Yeah, so what does Barbara Joe Rubin up to these days? Oh, I have a farm here in trial Illinois. We have 30 had a horses here. And I board horses, I give lessons.

"barbara" Discussed on Business Unusual with Barbara Corcoran
"The window. I'm going to tell you the real deal listening today. I'm going to answer all your burning questions about work. Life starting accompany getting on track and much much more. Be sure to call in to the business unusual hotline with your question at eight eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. r. a. This episode is presented by. At and t. business. Hey barbara this is leslie from ohio. I was wondering if it's ever appropriate to ask what the salaries during the interview absolutely but save that question till the end because it's much more gracious to ask at the end of the chew and before you who in make sure you know at that. Job is worth searched online and going with that number and if they give you a lower number and you're looking for more say it right than in there. There's no harm doing that every salary. Believe me negotiable. Hello this is barbara barbara. My name is hayley from auburn california. I was just curious. Why is the best questions to trip interviewers. In your opinion you've been in a game for a long time and you're always you know looking for that fresh person. That really did their homework. So what questions Surprise and impress you think you. Maybe i never tried to ask a trick question or trip somebody up and i don't look at the active interviewing as a game at all in my mind. The purpose of interview is simply to find out if the person's going to be good for the job do they fit the company Do they have the skill set. That's needed to perform the job. Well now when. I think about what kinds of questions i asked to accomplish. That goal of the first and foremost is to try to get to know the person as an individual. I always ask questions about their family. Their parents siblings town. They were born in. What's it like. I try to get them to relax and tell me all about the background. Why because you really can't change people if someone has a very open attitude. They're going to be an open worker. If they have a spirited core about their family in the hometown they going to be a team player. if they have grudges or if they're insecure or are Couching their own personality. I know they're not going to be open minded and so i ask a lot of questions about their background because i want to really get to know the individual their attitudes most importantly And the way they look at life The second part of the interview is to really drill down on the skill set to try to figure out. Do they have the skills for the job. And this don't trick questions there. I just present different. Circumstances went on on sure and see how they respond to it. What would they do. And so i end the interview feeling like i know the individual and i know if they have the skill set. And you know what i've learned. I've learned that. You can never change individual when i was young. Doing my first early hires. I always thought i could remake anybody if i put my mind to it. But then i realized if their parents couldn't remake them and life didn't remake them by now. Heck what was. I going to do to remake them. Sino and i interview. I'm going to get what i see. I'm not always hoping like i used to. When i was young i could change them. I can improve people. But i can't really change. I recently interviewed a woman who is very talented. Obviously had the skill set for the job but in the interview. I wasn't sure if she was going fit my personality. I was concerned because she talked a lot. And i'm not a good listener around someone who talks a lot in the workplace and so lucky for her. She asked an amazing question. Before i finish the interview with her she said is anything that would get in the way of you hiring me well she s so i told a. Yeah you talk too much. I said and she turned right around. She said i don't have to talk too much. I can work around that. I could be exactly who you want me to be. I won't talk too much. And i hire good for her. If that was an a trick question it was certainly a great question and she wouldn't be happily working in my company today. Being tremendous at what she does issue and ask that question. I was ready to pass just threw that in. I think that has been something new. I learned recently. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love no doubt.

And i just might answer your question live now. let's get back to the show. Hey sh ruthie. From austin texas and I'm glad to go to college. And i was wondering what advice you have for young girls wanting to do something in business Wanting to succeed in business because it's really challenging for many to get past. The barriers are in place and i washed shirt tank. And all these shows. And i i find it really inspirational what you do permit people. So thank you so much tracy first off. You can't focus on the barriers you look at the barriers keeps you outside in the same spot. You're in no don't let the barriers and certainly don't look at yourself as a young girl or even a woman for that matter. I don't think i ever approached a day in my life and business trying to build my life. As i wanted it to be as a young girl or woman i thought of myself as a person and more importantly i thought of myself as a competitor so when i entered the world of men who looked down on me or didn't take me seriously. I don't think i was even aware of that. I just dismissed it. I was too busy. Just doing what added due to accomplish what i wanted to do. And if they saw me differently what the heck. It wasn't until i was in business ten years until i realized the great advantage of being a woman. You know what it was. The guys didn't take me seriously. And so i went around that back and competed so hard while they weren't watching until i became the number one rival. I surprise them. If i had been a man they would have seen me coming in. They would put up a battle. But because i was a woman. They didn't take me seriously. Stop thinking of yourself as a woman. Just go out and compete like you would if you were a man. And that's all we have time for today if you have a question. Leave me a voicemail in the business unusual hotline eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. a. r. a. You can also tweet it to me at barbara corcoran and i may just answered on a future episode. You've been listening to business unusual with me. Barbara corcoran come back. next week.

"barbara" Discussed on Business Unusual with Barbara Corcoran
"Inside and out. So let's say in your neck of the wood you know your neighborhood you know your township you know the good blocks a bad blocks. The garbage routes the school district's. You know it inside and out as to how to identify great value. All right. maybe you should be on that side of the equation and focus on that. If you've got that you'll have money people join you and you could start a fund. It's easier thing to do the new at envision. You only need one partner to start. I wanna tell you a story to prove to you that this is a logical Way that the business goes and to great success. When i was starting out as a salesman. I had no money. I was just trying to make those commissions to pay the bills. I had no business investing in real estate but when i finally got money to invest extra money i had no time is running. A big business focused on that i had no time. What did i need. I need people who knew the market inside and out and they became my partner's side ten percent partners in the different boroughs because they found me the right real estate. They took ten percent. I put the money in. I took ninety percent. How is great for them. Great for me. But i had the right partners on that side. They had the knowledge. And i was there right partner. I had the money so decide. Second what side of that equation you wanna be on. It's very hard unless you got a lot of cash and you have a lot of time. Which isn't a lot of people for you to be in both sides market. Choose your aside and get really good at either the money side or the knowledge side. But don't try to do both a less again. I say unless you're loaded with money and have no job in of all the time in the world to get really smart on the experience side all right. So that's it that would be my Suggestion but remember that first question. Are you aggressive. If you're not aggressive this ain't the market you to dip into. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love now. Let's get back to the show. Hi barbara my name is emily. And i'm from chattanooga tennessee and my husband and not have about three renault's and to airbnb with the money coming in should we pay off the homes one by one for put that money towards something else. Thank you will emily. I would say that depends on a one thing. Only your appetite for risk. If you're buying these properties and doing well that you have the money coming in good for you have a successful business. But how much of it do you want. Would you feel more comfortable. If you double the number of properties you're managing and renting out. Would that be cold. You're probably doing this amount of renovation. I would think too on the front sight. Is that something you have the bandwidth to absorb and union husband. Love that kind of thing. You have the time to do it. Then i say go famour go as far as you can. And you have stepped into the most golden part of the investment community real estate. Because once you have those first few properties you have a gold mine. You can leverage leverage leverage again and. This is what i would suggest. I would not pay off the mortgages unless this is a goal you serve that you are feeling nervous and you wanna get rid of the loans. Then go ahead and do that. But if you not feeling that way. I would remortgage all those properties. They're making money. The bank will give you a big mortgage and if you go to the bank and remortgaged as properties. You could take that cash that they give you and by a lot more properties. That's how the big guys do it. Anyone who's grown rich and real estate do it with leveraging and that's basically the question you're asking should i leverage my properties were should i pay them off and that takes me to the first question again. It depends upon how comfortable you are with risk. If you're going to sleep well at night and on double the properties with the cash you just got from a bank. Go for it. You're going to be filthy rich. Not just rich but if you're not going to sleep at night and be worried it ain't worth it the only got one life that a good thing going. Why not continue what you're doing. That's it my best advice and that's all we have time for today. If you have a question leave me a voicemail on the business unusual hotline eight eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. a.

"barbara" Discussed on Business Unusual with Barbara Corcoran
"This episode is presented by. At and t. business high bre. My name is hannah. And i'm from brainerd minnesota. I was just wondering what a polite but assertive way to ask for a raise. It be what kind of key points do i wanna hit. That'd be great. thank you bye had. I could tell. You're extremely polite. Just by the way you phrase your question you don't have to worry about being polite I would think you might worry about being overplayed and not assertive enough. You're the kind of person with your very lovely manner. You could be super aggressive and nobody will even read it as that because you have that nice soft edge to you so go into this whole question with the idea in mind. You wanna be assertive. You'd have to worry about being too assertive. It's not your nature. Okay so with an eye toward assertiveness here. Are i believe the essential steps to asking for any raise from any boss in any circumstance. Okay first of all understand that bosses don't give raises to people for doing the same job they did last year. A lot of people think if you spent twelve months at a job that the boss thinks you should be rewarded. No he hired you. She hired you for a particular job that you've done for twelve months and if you've done that job well in my my at doesn't murder of raise just means you've done the job you got hired for. Hey but what bosses give raises for is when you take on more responsibility you doing different job today than you were hired for twelve months ago. So what you wanna do. Is you want to walk into the boss's office with the list of your new responsibilities where you were hired for which you love doing for the company for him or her and the additional responsible as you love doing for him in her the company now and you wanna point out very nicely. The list of what has changed in the job and how happy are for the responsibilities. But you'd like to be compensated for it. That's reasonable only a crazy boss would look scans at that. So that's one walk in with your list of new responsibilities if you wanna get a raise number to make an appointment with the boss. I'm a boss. I hate when people spring anything on me. I'm sorry to ask you. But right now. I'd like to ask you about a raise. I'm like no right away. Okay no give them a warning shot when you said you boss can beat you next friday. Some time i'd like to discuss my position at the company. They know what you come in after but give them some breathing room so they can prepare themselves. It's a human thing to do to make somebody be more happy to see you. That's what you do so ask for an appointment in advance next. You should go in knowing what you worth. Take your job responsibilities and title and go online and see what other companies are paying. You might find that. You were hired as an assistant bookkeeper in. You're being paid fifty five thousand dollars when you started and now you're able to be the full keeper and maybe market is paying one hundred thousand. You don't know but get out there. A lease look online and seeing what other companies are paying for your position. You should have a numbering your head knowing what the competition is paying. It's good for you to know what you're worth so find that out online. It's so easy to check and next don't expect an instant answer from her boss. You don't want to end the meeting as close as saying. So what do you say would you say. Am i going to get raised. No no boss wants to have a gun to the head say so. Can you give some thought. And can we meet again next week. That's the gracious way. And of course you can do that way. Because i could hearing your voice hannah. You're so lovely that you're not gonna be threatening to anybody and then make sure you say how much of a raise you would like. I'd like you to consider giving me a twenty thousand dollar raise a five thousand dollar raise a ten percent raise but always ask for more than you want and the reason for that is negotiation and a boss. Never gives you what you want. They usually went. Give you a little less as they feel like they got themselves a good deal so make sure you ask for the amount that you want and make it a little higher than you really think you want. Hey and then go back the next week if it happens that you don't get the raise after that kind of preparation then you have the right to say. Can i visit you in three months. And what else do i have to do to merit. Raise get a job order. What else do i have to do to get race. Put the boss on the spot fusing you merited. They're not giving it to you. As some how you could prove that you are deserving of arrays and. Don't leave the office on the second visit without getting an answer to that question. It's only fair play. It's not asking a lot okay. Hannah just makes she go growling at mirror for about a half hour before you go into the to the boss's office because you are so nice i could pick us thinking you're being a killer when you might be looking like a puppy dog so our practice being aggressive put a leash on your that'll help you get in the right frame of frame of mind because you so nice. Hello this is barbara barbara ryan from scottsdale arizona. Big fan love you to death. But my question is What do you think about real estate investing Currently with what's going on in the world today and what strategies would you start with if you were to start over right now. Thanks so much. The best a couple of thoughts come to my mind ryan maybe not in this order but let me just get it out there. A number one in today's environment super competitive. I didn't care unless you're in the office market. That's competitive right now because this suffering because of the change that the pandemic has made to the commercial landscape. But i'm gonna assume you mean residential beset onerous. Somehow i think you mean residential saw answer from that perspective okay. realized that that market is so super competitive Properties flying off the shelf. It's very hard to bid competitively for an investment property right now because everybody else's assay. So are you competitive by nature. I would say that would be number one. If you're not competitive by nature. Maybe should be doing something else because it's going to take a competitive person to make money in this kind of a market. That's number one number to be aware of what side of the equation. You should be on. This is my theory. People who invest in real estate. I invest in real estate. Okay i love real estate's a slow way to get very rich in my book. I like it better than any other kind of investment. I trusted gay. But there's two sides investing in real estate one side. Is your the money guy. You got a lot of money and you want invest in real estate or do the other side. You got a lot of knowledge and you know something.

"Spend on that listen the more crystal clear you are about it the better hiring job you'll do so don't do a thing until you've got that really clear lists including the hours vacation time how it's gonna run overtime at times what you're going to do about overtime. Think of every single angle see of this law scary lists. You're record not for the next guy here. Okay secondly what questions you ask in an interview that gives you the meet the stuff you really wanna hear this one best question the world if you willing to listen. Tell me about yourself and then keep asking question on question. Tell me about yourself. That's how you're going gonna get a read on that person's personality which is key. Does it match your list that you need in the personality and then you want to ask about their experience specifically do this do that. If there's a way you can test the do this do that all the better. But if you can't you want to ask about and see if you believe the answers they're giving you a. How organized are you owe. A morgan is on a scale of one to ten. How organize i seven. Oh that's so organiz. Okay you want to drill down and get real good solid answers to your question and then last after you've finished doing the questioning you want to make sure you're hiring attitude over experience it's great to have experienced can live without experience if you get somebody with a positive attitude. I'm going to use my mike stevens. Who runs all my shark tank businesses as a perfect example cyber leave. You'll remember it in the interview. When i was interviewing mike he was just graduating from college. He was the football coach. No pardon me the football captain in college. Big muscular guy the kind of guy you picked treating seven hamburgers and may be dripping the catchable over his mouth but i needed someone super organized when i asked him how organiz she was. He said very organized. I said how organized she said. Well i was a scholarship kid at columbia university. The captain my football team. I worked twenty hours a week for the university to help support my tuition. And i gotta be plus average. You have to be organized to pull that off too. I believe him you bench. I was impressed. And then the other issue. I had on my list was a lot of men. Don't like to work for strong women. And here's a football macho guy. Who i enough. He likes for women who strong women. And so i asked him. How do you feel about reporting to a woman. I can ask that question and you know what you said. My mother is the most organized powerful person i ever met. I reported her my whole life. I love answering women who knew this. Football hero was gonna come out with that stuff right. So i hired him that day based on attitude and my other important trait can they report to own and you know perfect. Hire his attitude toward him. Everything he didn't know about the job any new nothing. If i had chosen based on experience he was the absolute wrong candidate. But i had my eye on experience a me. I had my eye on attitude over experience. And i had my eye on the key traits that i needed for that specific job because i had taken the time to make the list too. I know what i was hunting for. So that's what i would suggest. I know it's a way a lot of more information in the us for but it is a sure-fire formula behind the right people. It is and that's all.

"The name smell from middle ware. Fayetteville ta and gosh. I am so confused. But i'll be quick. What would you do if you've never held a job for than six. Months are seen as a rebel for speaking your mind or having an opinion and having several mentors give various kinds of business advice but receiving zero return on all investments. I had that point said of business ensure continued to be fought for all along whether gonna should the mindset of being so announces grat for all eternity set it. Thanks kate by whoa. Whoa already backing up. I love enthusiasm. But i'm like. Oh she's a handful. Bellsa hair full and i bet you bring that to every job you hold now. It should be an asset. That's what enthusiasm is it should be an asset its attitude it should be an asset its energy it should be an asset but lump those together and it's a problem okay so i would suggest you have to calm down. Take it down to notch his four notches. Maybe in seven matches okay because you are gifted with a lot of this zoom zoom zoom and. It's very hard to include zoom zoom zoom person in a team. And that probably is why. You rebel a y. You probably have an issue as insubordination and an issue with people telling you what to do in the end. That's why you're charging changing jobs all the time. So i would say first and foremost you need an attitude adjustment. Because what you're tempting to do. So far is have the world match what you wanted to be versus working on matching you to what the world wants. And there's a big difference. I say that again. You go into job and you so enthusiastic a wanna do what you wanna do. You wanna do what you wanna do that. You hope that people wrap themselves around you. Maybe not consciously but that's what you doing but you want to reverse in look it look around size of people up size circumstance of business up and thing. What do they need for me. That's his starting point. And if you find honestly meld that you're unable to do it you have to go and see psychological help go see a good psychologist could analyze. We're that's really coming from your determination to make the world match you because always gonna get low every job. There's no way you're going to beat it. The world is there. You gotta join it. So i would say definitely take that wonderful enthusiasm and apply it to improving yourself with the help of a great professional and then you will look that dragon. Absolutely have enough energy to do it. You know what. I mean okay. That's fine advice mail. I hope you take it in good stripe. Hello this is barbara. Hey barbara it's morgan. From pittsburgh i was wondering if you've ever been fired from a job I hope you answer my question morgan. Just from the tone of your voice at half to actually make an educated guess that you were fired from your job. My right eye went. Assume that answer your question. Here's a way to look at it. You gotta look at it differently. Nobody likes being rejected at work. Among your friends in a love relationship by your family being rejected really stinks but that being said when you get rejected from job. This is how i look at it. Think of it as a gift. You know it's a gift 'cause when you get rejected from job you never really liked the job in the first place. It's always the case. Always the case that people get fired really never loved the job anyway. So they did. You favored move you on. I got fired from three jobs out of the first twenty two. I held and i felt the first one really like a knife on my chest but it was mostly because my boston tell me why was fired so i always wondered what did i do. What did i do. I wish now. I had asked them pay. What did i do wrong. Can you tell me why being fired. But i didn't have the confidence to ask the next two jobs i said why and i left at least with the reason why was fired and there were valid but when you get rejected by a boss you move onto something else and that's the law of the land. It gets you to move on in an area that you didn't have the courage to move in move on in your own time your own volition. So right that boss. Thank you know it's kind of like little kind of wacky therapy but will work and then just leave it behind you. You're gonna find a better job every time you get fired. You find a better job. Trust me i've been there. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love no doubt. It's been a tough year for small business.

Thanks so much by a superior than a hire somebody really great providing you do your homework gay. I say that. Because i get here the positiveness in your voice. You're gonna be the type of boston.

Which is yourself to begin with what you want to do is find someone who deserves who really deserves you. Someone who's terrific k. And here's a the way i go about it and hopes that it's helpful to you number one. Make a list a very clear specific list of what that person's traits must be two want. Somebody said he wants somebody happy. I would guess happy every time right. Do you want someone who's super organized resign. Not so important. Do you want someone with a big personality. Do you want someone who's quiet and could just stay on a test that repeats itself again again. Do you want someone who can think on their feet themselves or you going to do the lead on that and you do the thinking and you want somebody that you could tell what to do. Make a list as clear as you can on the applicants attributes you're hoping for and then also make an additional comments to the list that list exactly what not attributes but what talents they need to. They need to type fast to. They need to be good on computers. Do the need to be whatever it is in your test but the more time you.

"We get another one which i will do the later. But when we get those three unit kind of tolkien re reminiscing jason right and then the coma sation going horribly wrong if you will where barbara literally loses her stuff and just like see. You're doing n you know bruce. You haven't changed. And what did you make of shoes. Even just the dynamic of this family if you will because at the end they is the bat family it is. It's the batman family. And you know if you're familiar at all with these characters from the comments you know. There's a lot of dynamics at play here but here in titans in this version this episode this version of barbara. Like you said it rather i think astutely is that this version is much more cynical this barbara. I think this barbara has a lot of resentment. Especially towards bruce. You know she's. She makes no bones about that she she some really deep feelings resentment toward him. And you know. She blames him for jason's death for ruining dick's life for putting her in the jokers way which of course ended up getting shot or losing her leg and all that so she knows she tied to take some responsibility for herself. She says look. I became batman girl on my own. But the boys didn't have that choice. You know jason now. Jason is dead and so this is where i think. Barbara's resentment really just turns just raw. Hurt feelings here. She says you like having the joker out there because otherwise why would you have made sure that he was in arkham instead of being taken off the board and is and this is the the really hard part here that i'm sure shocked a number of batman fans where she comes right out and says. Look bruce you in. The joker are no different. As far as i'm concerned..

"Hi my name is melissa. And i'm calling from new canaan in connecticut and my question is what advice Do you give to young entrepreneurs who are finding their way in the business world Water good jobs to take To gain experience or internships to apply to gain experience Thank you melissa. This is a question. I hear every single day in. It's a great question so it's good you're asking a lot of people can learn from it you just starting out. There's a whole world out there. Where do you go. What do you focus on what he'd take. What are you one. It's like so hard when you haven't started down a path okay. So my advice would be three solid things. Okay number one. You want to stay open minded. Okay just see what comes your way you gotta go out and play in the traffic to see what bumper cars of the air. And what do you like to do which you want to jump in and steer you gotta get out there and tries to alaska them. So don't go out there with an attitude that you have to find the right first step. There is no right. I stepped is no formula. Just get out and get in the fray. That's number one number two. You'll have opportunities along the way in the beginning and all along the next job and the job. I after that you'll have opportunities to choose more money or better position or more experience but you know they never come in the same job. A better experience comes with some jobs and better pay comes another other jobs always choose experience because when you choose the better experience it always gets you further ahead when you you back up from your life and look back and see wall. Thank god i worked for that guy. Thank god i worked in that place that opened the store to this one that open door to this one but if you had just bought the job that was offered you because paid more. Those jobs never really go anywhere for some reason. That's what i've learned. And i've had a lot of jobs. Hey and the last is don't overlook the person you're working with working for you boss if you choose a boss that you like and has your back. He likes you back. she likes you back. She protects you. You're gonna wind up in a better job. You're going to get promoted more. You have pushed ahead because you've joined a great team headed by great leader and so don't overlook who you work for has more to do as you happiness you'll find than what you actually do for a living so loosen it up. Melissa you sound a little tight loosen it up. Let's not get out there and playing the traffic. Don't be so particularly. And that's all we have time for today if you have a question.

"And i'm trying to match it with a great enthusiastic answer but the truth is that i got an invitation. Gordon shark tank. I just got lucky call. Not that i was already working very hard in the field to build a reputation for myself as someone in the media space. But i got lucky. Call someone who called me and invited me. Would i be interested in going on the show. that's how i got on shark tank. I might also add that. I got rejected on shark tank right after i signed the contract. We'll say cold and so they changed their mind and the best thing. I did not lucky. But the best thing i did was stand for myself and give them a lot of reasons why they had made a mistake and asking them to invite me and the other woman they already chose or so they said out to compete for the one seat so that was the best decision i made and really got me on shark tank but i do get that lucky coal. Initially that being said. Why do i do it. I wish i could tell you. It's because i love helping people and that was on my mind. In the gecko. I discover that later why i did shark tank. Initially as it was fun. I felt like i could speak my mind. Be myself and people responded well to and they got something out of it only then did i realize the power of plane. The fairy godmother and making dreams come true and how much satisfaction i would get of having many different partners all the time changing all the time becoming part of my family and how satisfied that was. I wanna say one of the thing and that is i love me on shark tank every single day. All right i. There isn't a day on that. Set that i don't say thank you god for giving me this shot and because of that i've got so much satisfaction. Well well well. Beyond what a job could give give. You feels to me just like a gift gift every day but you keep that old enthusiasm olivia from the city of long island. I never heard that line could feel and you sound like you're still from long island by the way. Don't lose that accent. Hello this is barbara. Hi barbara since they keep from olive branch mississippi. I have been a work from home. Mom for twenty five years. I built a very successful direct sales business. That unfortunately closed after thirty five years in business i was with that company for twenty years earned a healthy six figure income. And now it's gone. I never thought that. I would invest so much of myself and my time into that business but fell in love with the people i worked with and that exposed me to. I'm now floundering. And the fact that i've not yet found anyone who acknowledges the skills and stamina and professionalism that building and sustaining in that industry required is somewhat disappointing I have great people skills a higher than normal q. and work ethic. And i'm just wondering if you have any advice or direction for what line of business i'm not consider pursue mix while it's kind of a complicated question because there's a lot of layers would vicky so let me take a stab at giving my my best dancer. Okay first of all get about the regret. I hear between the lines. What always time. You can't spend any time regretting it because what it really is. It's another version of feeling. Sorry for yourself. You don't have time for that. You don't need it you to talented. Don't waste another minute even thinking that you regret any of the energy you put anywhere because guess what you got forward. You became successful. And that's all you can hope to get is success from really putting the pedal of the metal and try and everything you can all right so don't regret it. Leave that behind. That's number one next thing. You have to leave behind looking for the acknowledgement from others. You know people. Don't you know it's like being in a long marriage in hoping a husband brings you roses. Every day doesn't work. that way. Lucky remembers the anniversary. Frankly so don't look for acknowledgement of how talented you were or what you accomplished from people that you want to employ now or from the people that you work with back. Then it's over. You did well any job. You're paid well again. Another version of feeling. Sorry for yourself just looking for acknowledgement again. But here's what i hear in The positive vein of everything. You said i agree with you. I don't doubt you for a minute that you were more talented than most people there. And that's phenomenal package. You could apply those particular talents because said not industry related their people and job related. That could apply to any. You could apply to any job you choose. So what are you interested in. Make a list of what floats he boat. What makes you happy. What kind of industry catches your eye here. There and then to start applying for a lot of jobs. They're all those old talents you have. Don't go away you'll bring them to the next job and push them at the job with reckless abandonment. Don't hold back and you'll have another big success. Remember how happy you were in that old job before it ended so you just looking for replacement and i would also say if you have people you love people who loved you and you had great exposure many people which you mentioned in your question i say why not grab a few those people maybe even one as a partner and go into the same field. Do it for yourself.

"Barbara my name is tara. I'm in from oregon illinois. I was wondering how to deal with Building a small business and a cop and copycat and how to deal with Someone who is trying to come in essentially do everything that you're doing so That's my question. I appreciate it. I appreciate your time and your feedback. Gonna s you. Question was the story. How i learned about copycats. Okay and what they mean and how how. I see it now differently than i did when i was younger. Business person when i was trying to build my real estate business here new york city. I was doing individual sales and rentals like one apartment at a time and finally i realized. Whoa there's a lot of development in new york. I wanna get hold giant buildings three hundred units and so i started calling on developers to get their trade three hundred listings versus one a time. I did the math. That's what i wanted. But i didn't know how to do that. Business a whole different kettle of fish. So i went to someone who's already in the business. Her name was Adrienne alpert who still in the business. I think i went to agent. Albert's office and pretended i was a customer. I'm ashamed of this. But i'll tell you i went into the sales office and pretended i was a customer so that i could see how they ran the operation and every form they use have that could i have that. Could i have this and even slipped if you forms in my purse. Then i went back to my own company and a replicated. All those forms and i knew the mechanism of running a onsite sales job and i opened a few offices all over manhattan with large buildings in effect. I was a thief. I didn't see it that way. I justified but i was a thief. Fancy thief but a thief gay. I was ashamed when i went back to my desk. The following monday's. This is a friday morning following monday. I get a phone recording. From mrs albert wong business. I was terrified to listen to it. And you know what. She said. She said barbara. I understand you're in my sales office at such and such dress and that you are wondering how that onsite business actually operates in that. We were able to help you with a few of the forms. I'm holding my breath feeling the pound in my heart and then she goes on to say just know that. I'll help you in any way that i can. I'll give you all the forms. I'll teach you how the whole business runs. And i'm very very happy to have you as a rival. Here's my number. Call me anytime. I was stunned. I thought what class act. And what a small person i am. I was ashamed. I called her. When i got the courage. I think it took me three days to get over my shame. I finally called for and thanked her. And i became her number one rival and then superseded her and she was always gracious. Here's what i've learned about copycats. It's the highest compliment in the world. Every single business. I invested in shark tank that is exceptional businesses. It's making the most money i copied every day. It's a good sign. It means we're onto something good and what also copycat does. Is it encourages. You insist that you do a better job. It keeps you on the edge. Keeps you on your toes. So when you're having copycats which i hear you are tara. Copycats copycats send them a thank. You know and thank them. At least you had thank food for copying his highest compliment in business you could get and that's all we have time for today if you have a question.

"Hey this is barbara corcoran. You are now to d- into business unusual and everything you ever learned about business. Throw it out the window. I'm going to tell you the real deal listening today. I'm going to answer all your burning questions about work. Life starting accompany getting on track and much much more. Be sure to call in to the business unusual hotline with your question at eight eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. r. a. This episode is presented by. At and t. business. Hey barbara this is gina. I'm calling from williamsburg. Virginia i am a new yorker though. I'm sure you can tell that. I'm not southern My first question is what do you think is the biggest challenge for boutique. Cookie business In today's climate giving walking traffic is just about opening up again I know you invest in daisy cakes. So you know the sweet business pretty well so just wanted to hear some thoughts on that My second question is with limited funds available. Would you choose to spend your money on packaging or advertising gina. I drove everything's opening up. So you're in for some heydays and you're going to do a lot of bang-up sales so get ready for the tide coming in as it's coming in for everybody you're important question. How do i spend my money wisely. Your unlimited budget every entrepreneurs on a limited budget and the people that do well with it are the people who spend carefully give it a lot of thought as so weird my pennies best be spent. And you're obviously asking those questions which is a great place to start. I say you have to spend on both yet to spend on packaging and you have to spend on advertising and it might seem at first blush insurmountable. Like my gosh. I only have limited funds dozen barbara. Listen to me yes some listening. I can tell you that you have to spend on packaging because what role of packaging is sets the customer up with an expectation of what the product is going to be. It's the first impression like when you meet somebody. Oh he she looks interesting. Will the packaging has to look good to attract the person in. But that doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money there dozens of websites out there. That are very young. Talent who do design work color work package design work for so little money. I don't even know how they stay in business. But you can have two or three people take a stab at initial packaging design. And you won't spend more than one hundred bucks and that's what you should be doing to start off with c. A packaging has to be good because it sets expectations. Secondly you must spend money on advertising and the word advertising is always misleading. It sounds so big and so broad and so expensive but it doesn't have to be. You could advertise smart and clever simply. You could advertise an instagram. And what a lot of young entrepreneurs don't realize as you can buy market share like within ten blocks of william businesses are twenty blocks thirty blocks and for five dollars you spend on instagram. You could get one hundred local people to see your ad. That's amazing right. So spend frugally on advertising but choose your medium. Well i would say. Instagram is the area that you could control best. Spend the least and get the biggest bang for your buck last. I want to add one thing which you didn't ask about. Make sure your branding. His personal yes. I love daisy cakes. The reason days cakes. Half the reason i should say other than her working like crazy but half the reason she's so successful is people know the person buying the brand if you don't put your face forward with a with a apron with a potholder. Inhale with a pretty. Cookie played in your hand. You're out of your mind because what everybody loves the baker and so you have to be front and center as baker may shoot you keep yourself up for. That's it asked my best advice. Get ready for the good old days. We're going to start to rock and roll. Hello my name is will. And i'm calling from east lansing michigan. I'm actually currently on the michigan state. Campus i was just calling to ask you a question. I wanted to see what your thoughts or suggestions would be for a small business owner that started in high school and is just starting out and is trying to get some ground under their feet with Innovations in their field. But they're little hesitant getting the patent process going. So will you sound to me like conservative guy unless you fool me with that voice but you sure sound like my first husband. He was a conservative guy. Okay conservative people like to have their is dotted. And the t's crossed all the time and that can get in the way when you starting a business. You almost wanna play loose and you know why if you don't play it loose you don't see the cars coming. You don't know how to bob and weave. You're like focused on the line in the road you know. Forget about the patent in know the only time you should be thinking about getting a patent is when you realize the whole world wants you product then you have something to protect but if you conservative by nature chances are you'll spend money on the patent. Make the attorneys rich instead of you rich by going through the process spending your time in addition to the money and you know it's often not because until you could clearly see that people really really love your product and really are wanting it. I wanna copy it. That's when you spend the money on pat got it. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love no doubt. It's been a tough year for small business.

"Help. And i looked at wiz less even only. Dan did my profile bags five years ago. But i hear light. Okay we gotta start all over. Yes so it's really important at your cult even if you're looking for a job right now it's all about building your network and a network is that you haven't you haven't in place so as there when you need it so it's the long game it's not the short game and then one thing you've talked about with me in the past is that it is a number you just mentioned it again and i don't know if there's another algorithms that's what i want to ask. What is it for. Let's say we have someone that's got fifty connection there just starting out. Then they hear this. Show man. I get on it like barbara told me i gotta get on it. I gotta post content. And i gotta build my network and they get active with that. We talk about. It only takes a few steps a day. I personally started. I think maybe when you share the try to reach out so like five to ten people a day. Do you have any best practices to make this digestible to grow the network. Because i mentioned getting close to a thousand well for everyone listening either working on that for a while. And barbara's giving me the kick in the pants that i need to go get it to over a thousand and even higher and i know you're even bigger than that much bigger. Are there any other like small digestible. Things you tell your clients to do every day or a.

"Business shares my passion for small business. And we're eager to hear from you. If you've got a question tweet us at barbara corcoran and at att business. And i just might answer your question live now. Let's get back to the show but were you changing in that year and a half. That turned it enough to the side so that it would work because the concept was still the same but was the mechanics of what made it a business that actually ticked the changes you made in that crucial first year and a half. I think that's a crucial time building any business absolutely. It means so much. What we what i learned as an entrepreneur came from that year and a half but the the the reality is that when we started netflix for people who only know net flicks now is streaming service back. Then if you wanna movie we mailed it to you. We didn't stream it streaming. Didn't come of their nine years. It came in a little red envelope and at the very beginning there was due dates. There was late fees. I remember it was very interesting. It was very little business model. You're not the only person it's one of the reasons that we were confident that we might have a chance against big entrenched competitor with blockbuster several and hated that but that didn't work and so we immediately begin saying okay. Let's try and figure it out. We began testing everything we could think of we test you know rent one. Get one free. We'd try punch cards where you buy pack up know groups of five or ten rent it you like it you can then buy it and keep it all kinds of things which scare us glimmerings of what customers cared about. We begin learning. About what do people think about when they wanna rent. Dvd's by mail. What makes that were compelling than going to the blockbuster we try. Different selections different promotions and the breakthrough came again a year and a half later after read. I one afternoon. We're in our warehouse this a year and a half in and at that point the warehouse probably had several hundred thousand. Dvd's in it. And we were looking around. And i remember commenting..

"Come listen to mark randolph. The co founder and ceo of the ridiculously successful net flicks. Listen to what he has to say about. Reaching for success welcome. I was so excited by speaking with you today. Because i've read so darn much on you and i'm hoping i'm gonna come up with some questions you haven't heard before we're not sure that's possible because you've been interviewed five million times. I'm sure right well barbara. I'm confident you'll figure out some new angle but listen even even before we start. I kind of have to say that You really don't know how important it is that i'm finally getting a chance to meet you and let me explain why everybody starts off that way. Baloney coming my way. And i i was thinking about saying this go. She is going to get so listen. I'll tell you it's different than perhaps you've heard before when i was a still in school my mother was a real estate agent and She idolized you and more than that. She so you so inspired her and you inspired her an interesting way. Which is that. I think my mom saw this industry that was largely women realtors and she looked around and said you know. It's kind of weird. Because all the agencies all the brokerages seemed to be owned by men and she wanted to have her own brokerage her own agency you grew up in westchester and there were no female owned agencies until maybe thirty years ago i agree with you. Yeah yes. Julia was the other not to get too detailed into the weeds on real estate. But she seriously would talk all the time. Barbara corcoran this barbara quirk. In that she was on the board of real. Oh and she must have met you some function or other first name Mickey mickey randolph was randolph properties swine. I put that together. She was solid rock. No question about that woman whatsoever. Who worked her she was. She was my inspiration in many ways as an entrepreneur. Because i i saw her doing the things you have to do to build a business. I mean at first as a realtor but then starting your own agency and then eventually having a network of agencies a network of offices but again I know how much he respected you. And here's the last piece to this. is that obviously. I've had this opportunity to meet lots and lots of really interesting really successful people and my parents aren't around now for me to telugu on meeting but i know that they wouldn't really been that impressed because they weren't that type of people. But if i told my mom that i'm getting a chance to talk to barbara corcoran that that would have resonated with her. So thank you for the opportunity. I would have definitely interviewed you when you were fine. If i had known that back then i see great things in this. My mom would have agreed with you. Put your mother's first thing together with your last name and helming. Wow what a treat to even think back at those reloj as and the good times we had but she was not a fluffy woman she told me like it was what she said said what she meant and left the scene. That was that was your mother. So i gotta tell you one little quick real estate story before we actually get into netflix's and all the rest of it is that we for those who don't know westchester county where i grew up chappaqua particular was a pretty upper middle class..

"The sarah is a checks and balances as worries about it because she's gonna probably and You know a couple of walls you could avoid hitting a couple of walls you know but all right i just wanted to say that i think i think you guys to make a list of wire so phenomenal of posted framing and something really expensive and stick it over your toilet bowl so the place we mostly sitting you see it all the time you know. I'm just do really good. I mean it's a little working a but if you're feeling stressed out and you're overwhelmed and we're not the laura read about you the more. I was breathing. I was holding my breath. Worried about your mind. Well in that what can they do. But you know what you could do it all and as often as you want as much as you want as long as you can nurture of the talented people that you've handed to not assist you with it but handed to that takes a lot of trust and that also takes finding good talent. But you know it's great about a creative person they attract creative people. Somebody who's like really left brady kind of dollars and cents deductive reasoning for some reason creative people that really want to work for them. I don't know why maybe they've smell something. I'm not guilty. I'm not going to get bored with this guy you know so you eat a good boss and like give people room to feel confident. Bring their ideas. And that's where we're like. Montana is very young so she's in her twenties so we go to her. we go. You gotta tell us like we know what we're doing are we. How how do you make a real like. What do we need to be paying attention to what. What's a trend that we're missing like. How do we get our clothes on the right people. And then all these creative ideas like listen. I really think that we need to focusing on body inclusivity and so i really think that there's these girls on tiktok and let's send them close. Let's like shown your clothes and different bodies. Let's like she thinks about things from a twenty seven year olds perspective instead of a thirty seven year. Old not great helpful. We were also we. Were very very hyper alert of our strengths and our weaknesses. And you know to be clear and we've talked about this a little bit but we just want to reiterate not we have not been pounding the pavement and fast at even even remotely. We've been the payment and other areas not the fashion world so for us all of a sudden to be in this position where we have this brand. And it's selling and people like it and we're at nordstrom. We have an unwary walked into a building infrastructure of central brands. They are on the scene. They turn out her..

"Because at least if somebody goes oh. It didn't realize that you were the turn that unless i didn't see me on email find be passive aggressive knowing but it's a lot better than like us basically ripping each other's hair out. We fight a lot. We try to. We have a couple different people in our lives. that try to help us mediate. My husband is one of them. So he'll call me and then he'll get sad story then he'll call sarah and get her story and kind of make us both feel heard and then he'll kinda helpless come together and we've done some mediating sessions and were were always working on it but like to be very transparent we have not mastered that like that is a big problem for us. But what if you're working with your partners and your business situation do you come across a united front the to equal one invoice or do you fight in front of each other. I would think that would go over well. Well it's you know it's interesting because we are in so many different ventures together right. We have our television deal. So we're in an overall deal at disney where we write produce and develop shows for ourselves for other people and in that world along by the way. Sounds like a huge business. I couldn't even imagine you accomplishing now. Without a lot of help just that one business alone. Which i want to get back later. It seems mind boggling to me that your hands are in so many places. I frankly don't know how you do i to know. Go ahead well so the lease in this area. We the least area. Probably because there's just sort of this embedded thing where air energy better at it and deep down. I know that we wouldn't really be in the position. Were in at disney. If it wasn't for her so so subconsciously. I sort of go like i know my value there. I can produce the hell out of the show. I'm funny. I'm i you know all the things but i by deep down know that aaron goddess there you know i probably step back a little bit in that area or defer to meal i deferred to you probably a little bit more. So that's that's the one venture where there's that and then you know and all the investment stuff and the advisory roles we've taken on with these different companies like it's a pretty level a level playing field there right like we're we're like this which then we argue a little bit more and then in The favorite daughter that the brand that we started the clothing business started same thing right so i think that's probably probably why there's less chaos with all the television because i think like with any partnership if you know what each other's Like talents or weak areas are then you can fill them in each other. But when we know those when it comes to tv because i had to establish role in that area and sarah had heard salvaged role so we can kind of like let each other. You know handle things about each without us being together all the time but when it comes to like a clothing line or investments those are really just our own tastes or our own instincts and it's harder because we kind of don't have that same push poll like we both want the same level power in every situation that makes it. we are getting better delegating. We are getting better going. Look you take this. Because we're obviously stronger when we delegate right because to your point our hands are in so many things. And if i'm going to be really honest with you barbara and i..
