Coronavirus Impact on the Food Industry: Cameron Mitchell Restaurants CEO
"Joining us right now on the topic of small business and what he's seeing is Cameron Mitchell. He's the founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which owns nearly sixty establishments across the United States and Cameron. It's great to see you. It's been a while since we've spoken good morning break plagiary back with you today. So. The first time we talked to you was in the midst of the shutdown when all of your restaurants had been closed down and you laid out a plan for what you were hoping to see. Two weeks ago on March third, I was in Washington DC to meet with my bankers and I expressed them what a great start year we had were up seven percent same store sales record profitability for the first two months of the year. This was March third tomorrow I believe March Eighteenth we will be completely shut down I laid off forty, two hundred people on Monday. The last time we talked to you things we're looking pretty good business was was back and was booming. I think we're going to survive, but it's going to be a while before we get to the hospital we expect to be open in hopefully back to full employment by the end of June or into or end of July somewhere in that neighborhood. So what's happening right now? The best way equate it to is we're in a hurricane in the first. Landfall, the hurricane was back in March fifteenth and. It was is detrimental as it was terrible. It's was We end up getting the money and we're able to get out and get open and it was a lifeline. We would not be here today if it wasn't for the original P P P loan and June came and sales, we're doing pretty good. We're about seventy five percent of last year sales were feeling very optimistic and and when I came to realize is we are really just in the eye of the storm and then July the beginning July head and and the case counts rising. Across the country and met, metropolitan. Areas Rolling back opening guidelines and in further restrictions on our business and sales fell down to now fifty percent of last year and that is just not sustainable. So here we are today you know August second and I feel just as nervous about the future as I did back in the beginning of March when Corona virus was coming over the horizon. So we're looking for a second round of P P P to help us get through the other side and and help us sustain for the future so. And the thing that we're hearing mostly Congress is about the stimulus checks, the unemployment but there are thousands and thousands of businesses like ours out there in the country they're hurting terribly at fifty percent decline a forty percent decline sales we cannot survive. We're losing between five, hundred thousand and a million dollars a month, and we need the additional P P P dolorous in a in a terrible way and you know the the curb puzzle is for a two million dollar cap on that which. last time was ten million dollars and so for a company like ours and many others that reduction of eight million dollars just when we need it, the most is is very difficult for us. Camera now is the decline in your business coming mostly because states or local municipalities have have forced you to not open as much into close things down or much of the decline is coming from people who Are, afraid to go out what and how would you measure that a difference while it's both clearly when you have a reduction in capacity from use spell. Example Beverly Hills we were closed all restaurants California closed for indoor. New York City we were not allowed to open our whole restaurant that was just for the Patio Philadelphia. We're not allowed to open that was got rolled back from August I now to September first. So some of our businesses are not even open yet So but the main driver of that reduction of sales is the increase case cow corona virus around the country and people becoming more and more nervous about going to restaurants even though there's no science dates that that says inherently restaurants, Kobe case outbreaks, her Dr Been Driven by restaurants seating. Indoor and outdoor see. Cameron. What? What are you doing in terms of your relationship with your landlords? particularly in some of those places, the restaurants haven't even reopened yet. Are you getting any forgiveness or any easing of things from them? Well, that's the thing becky you know we had almost all of our landlords help out in some way or another not all but some or most they should say, but that money is just a simple deferral that's So we have an additional three, million dollars we got deferred in. April May and June but that money has to be paid back over various schedules over the next two years. That's just additional debt on the balance sheet, and we come out of this without P P p. one of the things cameras restaurants we built three or four restaurants a year, and if we're saddled with millions of dollars debt if and when we get out of this I don't see a building an aiding the economic rebound in the country in Twenty One and twenty two point further were saddled with all this debt. What have you heard from the the senators you've spoken with on this? I've spoken. Personally to both are centers in the state of Ohio and. They understand our plate and and but I, think they're. All. The negotiation right now over the six hundred, a week stimulus for unemployment benefits. So I don't think it's getting much attention that it needs right now and I hope by the time we get this bill and some sort of agreement between both parties on this bill that we can get this P P P round two stimulus, which has one hundred and ninety billion dollars earmarked for it, which should be more than enough for these companies passed the stress test that show they actually needed.

Rediscovering the Joy of Work with Bruce Daisley
"Work. Is this really fascinating thing because it's something that almost all Americans do every single weekday. We spend a lot of time at work. And for some people, it's incredibly healthy, rich, life-giving robust, but then there's a whole other group of people sometimes in the same industry, sometimes in the same job that view work, unhealthy, stressful, draining demeaning and frustrating from the Ramsey network. This is the entree leadership podcast where we help business leaders grow themselves their teams and their prophets. I'm your host Alex, Judd and today we get to. To talk with Bruce Days Lee Bruce Bruce's someone that has spent a large part of his career, really trying to understand and examine what it takes to create a life giving rich robust work environment. This is something that he really started to learn. Whenever he served as the European vice president for twitter, but then dove even deeper into as he wrote the book and hosted the podcast called. Eat Sleep, work repeat, but all of this focus on creating and perpetuating effective work environments all started with one very simple curiosity. Yes first and foremost started off probably in a job. The other always dreamed of you know of I. Was honored to have setup the London twitter office from a handful of people, and it was, so it was combination of intense startup, mentality and then working. Tech, firm that I thought that was the holy Grail, and I think from my perspective. I found myself developing a curiosity. The I want to understand why sometimes we have a magic in our work teams, and why sometimes that Magic's option? It's a like if you went to a party every day. If all of us live, maybe Beverly Hills lifestyle, but if we were all going to a party everyday pretty quickly, you'd start thinking okay. This good par is in bad policies, these good energy and bad energy, and I guess to some extent. I wanted to understand that energy that sometimes we find ourselves enveloped in incredible positive effervescent energy I wanted to know how could bring some of that to my own workplace so I mean I'll be candid with you. You. I started from a a bad place. The party had died the Party paper guests relieving the Party and you know we had one year where around forty percent of the London team left, and it's incredible failing when that Matt people leave team because you know every Thursday is a leaving drinks, and you just constantly feel like you waiting for the next. person's telling you they're going. And at that stage. I just felt like okay. I need to take. Remedial action I need to do something to bring life back to the organization, and so I think from my perspective I set about trying to do the challenge I found. Is there a lot of the books you buy? These things will talk in big lofty terms. They'll say oh. You need to bring purpose back and I found myself on a Wednesday morning sitting at my desk, thinking okay, if I wanNA bring up back what other specific actions I need to take now I almost wanted. The manner of a cookbook wanted something it was. Rather than telling me what to do. I wanted to know how to do so I think all of my stuff really has been lay. Persons take to try to understand what psychology neuroscience own manner of other social science. He's telling us about. How make work better? And that's what I love about your perspective in what I've seen from talks. Also in your book is you came at this content from a matter of it sounds like necessity like you were a consumer of this content. It sounds like because you were putting into action. Is that right very much? So you know I wanted to stop making changes. I'll give you a spectator a lot of us. Probably you know if we'd look to the word of the year in two thousand and nineteen, there were so many articles about burnout, US J., and a was really interesting. You probably don't get that volume of writing and commentary on on something. Everything from you know Wall Street Journal. Today like. Also women's mags. Everywhere fitness magazines. It was everywhere and so I was really interested. Right? Okay, one of the reasons. Why so many of my team acquitting? It seems to be that burn is contributing. I wanted to know right specifically. If that's the one thing, I'm going to tackle, what could I do? And sometimes there's just not an easy answer to those things. And I found the because I was the audience that I was thinking about I wanted to try to solve for some of these some of these things that may be get written about as trends, but unwritten about. As a way to try and solve them as about thinking okay, so if I was running a team of. Two. Hundred people one of the things that I could do that would make worked better for my team and I think specifically my view us, what are the ways that we can make our workplaces more productive? Happy? Yes, but productive specifically largely because I think to some extent happiness follows when the workplace he's productive. You know you don't necessarily need to be fizzing with euphoria. I'm not seeking to make happiness in that sense that you know we gifting people, cupcakes and smoothies to. Put them into a delirious stay of over stimulated ajoy, but rather more wanting to make sure that they felt like jobs will rewarding that jobs were satisfying were getting things done, and there's no shortage of evidence for those things after when you delve into the research of this failed some of the things that come out remarkably obvious
Rich Americans spew more carbon pollution at home than poor

"We'll be perfect because it's the thing you love made by an artist who loves to wrap up. Dot Com find your thing paying artist. Because I'm a journalist and frankly a nerd I should have been way ahead of the curve on Corona virus. Think back to the thirteenth of February twenty twenty I know it feels a long time ago. Three people outside of China had died from the new virus at least as far as anyone knew at the time. Nobody in the US was thought to have died of it. Nor had anyone in my own country the UK? The virus felt very distant threat. But it wasn't. Walden. A thousand people had died in China. Not Number was rising rapidly. twenty-five countries had confirmed cases. Well respected epidemiologists had already concluded that there was little chance of stamping out these other cases quickly. The novel Corona virus was to contagious. Like the FI in the supper club it was spreading everywhere and rapidly gathering speed. And I know this because I interviewed one of those well respected epidemiologists on February, the thirteenth talk to Natalie Mcdermott of King's College London walked into a studio at the BBC. And told me the latest thinking on the new corona virus. The early data had suggested that the virus killed more than one in ten of the people at infected. Dr Mcdermott reassured me that now. It probably wasn't quite that dangerous. The best guess at the fatality rate was more like one in one hundred, maybe as low as one in two hundred. Nobody knew for sure should I just assume that everyone on the planet would get it. I asked no, she's had that was too fatalistic. But if we couldn't contain it, it was certainly infectious enough to infect a majority of the planet's population. A noted. I believed her. Even did the mental arithmetic. They might be five billion cases, and with a one in one hundred death rate that would be fifty million people around the world, dying over the course of a few months in the United States. It would be two million deaths. Lot to do with the doctors information. I did what Pastrengo resorted? His ship plowed on towards Rox. I anxiously forward. My Brow and I kept on going hoping the worst wouldn't happen. Now I don't want to exaggerate my failings. I didn't crash any oil tankers. Nobody died because of my mistakes. But I could have done better easily. I could have held off on booking my summer vacation I could have made sure. I caught up with my elderly father and stepmother, who are in high risk groups I could have sold all my shares, or at least most of them, and waited for a couple of months to see whether Dr. McDermott's grim scenario was starting to become a reality. Instead. I took some money out of savings to pay down some of my mortgage because I had gigs firmly in the diary. That would talk the savings back up again. Those gigs were canceled of course which means. I drained my savings at the worst possible moment. If a goodness sake I could at least bought an extra toilet paper. But none of this went through my mind. It wasn't that I wasn't anxious. I was anxious just like Pastrengo. Yati was anxious I was aware that was a problem. And yet. It step back, think things through intern, my anxiety into action, and perhaps you may recognize yourself in that description to. Remember the experiment by psychologists. Bib Latin John Darley. They slowly pumped smoke into rooms, containing people filling in questionnaires. Solitary subject didn't hesitate to leave and report the smoke. But groups of people stayed and stayed as the smoke thickened. Reassured by each other's passivity, those experimental subjects had done nothing. Now a decade later, the customers of the Beverly Hills Supper Club reenacting that experiment in the most terrible way. Some people moved in reaction to young. Walter Bailey's warning. He saved them. But many people were to to react lulled into complacency by the fact that others were also to slow four minutes later, the power failed, and the lights went out in the ballroom. Toxic smoke rolled in an anyone still in that room faced a dreadful challenge in getting out alive. Walter Bailey repeatedly held his breath and headed back in to drag out as many people as he could. One, hundred sixty seven people died that night. If it hadn't been for Walter Bailey, the death toll might have been many hundreds more. Bailey also survived. He's a true hero. I'd like to think that if disaster struck odd, have the courage the presence of mind of Walter Bailey. Fair I'm more like those poor unsuspecting supper club patrons enjoying that food and forward to the music, then wondering what to do and taking cues from. With social animals, we humans, we know instinctively that it's normally safe to stay with the group and to do what the group does. But not always. I hesitated to and then when I started reacting in earnest to the pandemic I found that the stock market was already plunging the pastor and toilet paper was already sold out, and there was no hope of getting masks. Governments found themselves in the same situation for much the same reason. This series I'll have more to say about what our leaders have done and failed to do, but for now let's simply note that many Western democracies found themselves in the same crazy scramble for ventilators for swap testing kids for masks and for Ganz. If, everyone had started taking action in January, while risk of pandemic was still just a risk. We'd all be in better shape now, but just as in the supper club. Before they acted. Everyone wanted to be a little more certain that there really was a problem. Amy Edmonson a professor at Harvard Business. School calls this SORTA problem ambiguous threat. The warning signs aren't completely straightforward, and the potential for harm is.

"This cautionary tale is going to be a little different I. that's okay. The world seems different these days so I've been writing some new stories for you to suit the times, wherein there'll be a little shorter, little simpler, and perhaps a little more focused on the challenges. We face right now. And this episode is different than another way, too, because in a small way. It's about me about what I got wrong and I hope about what you can learn from my mistakes. We'll come back to my mistakes and to the fire in the Beverly Hills Supper. Club but I I wanted to ask you a question. Do you. Remember Captain Pastrengo Yati. You must cautionary tales season one episode one. It was about an oil tanker. The size of the Chrysler building ship with the name Torrey Canyon that ship was headed for a sunken massive rocks with a vicious reputation, called the seven stones and captain. Strangler Girardi poor per stringer rouge Yati steered his ship closer and closer and closer. To disaster. Go. Listen again if you like. All White. The mystery of Torrey Canyon you may remember is that while captain majority was steering his ship towards the rocks. The weather was good. The visibility was good Torrey Canyon had radar, and the seven stones were clearly marked both on all the charts and by a lighthouse vessel, warning ships to keep away. That was still time to change. Just as there was still time to evacuate the cabaret room. And yet. Torrey Canyon did not turn. Justice, the people in the Suffolk Cabaret Room did not move. Captain Jacques Teti was a man in a hurry hit made a plan to head straight for harbor, one hundred fifty miles beyond those rocks, but his original course was chartered safely through deep open water. That at least was the plan. But now new information is coming in the ship has drifted off the expected course overnight closer to shore. He's now heading for a tight squeeze past seven stones, fishing boats have appeared blocking his way. The current is pushing him towards the rocks. His plan is getting riskier and riskier. But at no point does he stop? Reflect. And rethink everything. Instead with each new piece of bad news, he furrows his brow, and re dedicates himself to his original plan. So here's my confession. In the face of the growing corona virus epidemic. I behaved in exactly the same way. It took me far too long to really think about the information that was coming my way. It took even longer to take action. I to. Captain Reality Very first cautionary tale discussed one reason why we don't change course. Psychologists call it? Plan continuation bias. We focus on a particular goal when bad news comes in, that should make us rethink our tunnel vision and we narrows. The bad news makes us redouble our focus on the initial plan. Now that we know it's going to be difficult. was racing against the clock and with each setback, the tunnel vision must have closed in further. He also made his fateful decisions by himself. He was a captain who didn't inform his crew of the details of his plans and didn't seek that comment. As he acknowledged. I must answer for everything for everyone. I must carry the cross alone. If. Only jardine had been open to criticism and had sought the views of his offices. They might have helped him to regain his grasp of the risks and rethink his plans. But having other people to guide, you doesn't always help. If they're in the same situation as you with the same assumptions, they can lull you into thinking that. None of you have a problem. When in fact, all of you have a problem? There's a famous. Study conducted in the nineteen sixties by Biblo Tanay and John. Dolly the scientists are subjects to sit quietly and fill out a questionnaire. Sometimes the subject would be alone and sometimes in a group of three. Gradually the researchers has pumped smoke into the room. When the subject was sitting alone, he or she tended to note the smoke and calmly leave to report it. When the subjects were in a group of three, much less likely to react each person remained passive reassured by the passivity of the others. Based on what we now know about. The Beverly Hills Supper Club in Nineteen, seventy seven. That experiment seems darkly prophetic. That incident is vividly described by Amanda Ripley in her book. The unthinkable remember where we left off. Twelve hundred people were in the cabaret room, listening to the warmer packed crack jokes on stage. A fire was racing towards them. Young Walter Bailey supervisor had shrugged ignored the problem like I. The supervisor had a plan and didn't seem able to fully appreciate. The plan would have to change. So Walter Bailey did something big something he assumed would cost him his job. But someone had to act. He decided that it was going to be him. Although he was just a teenager, and although he suffered from stage Fright Bailey strode down, the middle of the room climbed up on stage grabbed a microphone. I want everyone to look to my right. There's an exit to the right corner of the room and looked to my left as an exit on the left. Now look to the back. There's an exit at the pack I want everyone to leave the room calmly. There is a fire, but the front of the building. And then ultimately left the stage. I wish I could tell you that. One thousand two hundred people rose to their feet and filed out of the room. But they didn't. He was this kid they thought, was he? Part of the act was the fire for real. Was it a problem? People thought of the expense of their ticket of how much they were enjoying the food.

This is like you're really and you have been since for years. Ever since I was little. We always travel my family every league winter summer spring break during school and also of my dad for business he always if he had a business like he would always make it a family business trip or like you go to Australia.

He has like the biggest Retail shopping center chain in China but also now does real estate automobile conglomerates about the China situation. I think that I mean in the beginning he really. It wasn't like the death toll. I guess really wasn't that high. I guess it was like only two percent which is kind of you know. More people die from pneumonia. The flu walking on the street. Then you know so in the beginning. I think everyone thought. Oh it's not going to be that big of a not that we didn't think it'd be a big deal deal but the death toll wasn't that high and we thought that maybe like the meat I it. I think it's just scary because it's something unknown new you know and no one really knows where it's coming from and it's kind of like that it kind of strikes fear in people but it was very contained insert the government was doing sit like like basically the like if you live in a city where anyone has a case of it. Like everything is shutdown. Like my dad. Was it allowed to have any meetings or like no one can like group regather so the government really was on the on top of it trying to quarantine people keep people away from each other to hopefully have it. Just go away as quickly as possible. So he's not he's not really. I mean but it is scary when you hear but also you don't know what's real and fake because a lot of the media that we get in the numbers we get or different than some of the numbers that China's putting out or different and who knows right what's real and what's kind of fake.

"People are GonNa find out your think they call it imposter syndrome. Right people are gonNA find out. You're really not that clever and I started run away from being a leader. I guess you know what you're saying. Thank to quote another movie. Line here is like there was. The movie was broadcast news. Maybe your network. And and and then he was John Hurt. William hurt says to the other character. He'll what do you do when when you're you're real life surpasses all your fantasies right. I'll August you shut up and don't talk about point is you're at that point. Where like what do you do when you're when you're what you really thought your goals you above that? I'm above. What your motivation? Now what do you do. You know what what started happening is because I'd surpass what I thought of sabotage right so I started going downward spiral the a company started going on a downward spiral and it wasn't until I took action towards my biggest fear in life which was I was basically. Yeah that wasn't smart. That was my big sure so I finally picked up a book the first book I picked up since Charlotte's web. What both notable is it ten X.? Grant Cardona Okay and it was so hard for me retain it. They literally had a write. The book out 'cause audio version right so I had literally right everything out and then when I finished reading it and I realized Holy Crap. Everything think that's on. This book is stuff that I already did right so then I started study. I made it made a commitment to study in our day everyday like I do on my fitness of the body And as I started studying guys like Ed my lead guys that were worth hundreds of millions of dollars. I was like wait a minute. All these guys are talking about the same thing. IRA did so. Because I experienced instead. I believe that in my heart now myself worth went through the roof and the way I break that down his see in two thousand fifteen consciously. I told the whole company company. Oh we're going to be a hundred million dollar company. The problem is my unconscious mind. Didn't believe it right in his. You know your unconscious mind start will block things because unconscious mine. There's a lot more powerful than your conscious mind so began blocking it so it wasn't until I attack that dream that fear that now I started to really I believe that I was worth one hundred grand a year and then all of a sudden my unconscious mind starts to align with what I was saying consciously and then two thousand seventeen happens. That's right when I finally took when when I when I was doing all that studying right then what happens. Is you start attracting everything to make that dream happen. All all of a sudden we land real housewives Beverly Hills all of a sudden grant calls me to be on his show at my leg caused me to be on his show All of a sudden a celebre executive that was running billion dollar company was already retired. Living in Beverly Hills calls me and says man. I saw one of your videos. I love the smart home industry. He reminds me a lot. Of what the wireless cell phone. And she was twenty years. I WanNa work with you. And now he's my president and we've been on fire now we're on pace to hitting one hundred a million dollars Bigger than ever but it took me attacking that fear that someone's going back to the books that you choose right I love that Malaysia. Big Big Above a big Fan. Like you find any books where that wasn't about just stating the obvious like where you said like you read the but you only guys you gotta go for instance. There are some books. I've read to me change my life because confirmed what I already knew but because it actually had me thinking in ways that I hadn't thought before. Yeah yeah like thinking. We're thinking which I've I want to say I've heard of it but I I have read that thinking rich I read it in. Wow anyone date it. But it's all like I'm GONNA eat three decades even more. I was in my teens when I read this and it literally changed my life. Yeah it was a life Shamir life changing situation and then I it's true is saying though is that I find the problem with a lot of books that you read them and you're like okay. It's kind of just stating what I already know. So confirm to you. I think what you got out of the year I was like wow how on smart. Yeah I'm right right yeah. Have you had any books that you've read that you could recommend that you thought will that really actually what you strategies above that because there's two schools of thought we need example. One is one schools. I I read a book day. Yeah so one one school thought and the other one is. I never anything and the reason I say that last week about a bolt type on my podcast one and it was really funny. It was a goal so I I never would ever read a book as I go. You WanNa be a friend of X. Guy but so. Have you ever read books where you actually learn like instructional step by steps. So it's it's funny mentioned because obviously I'd like to do my homework. It would be the way I get my conferences by preparing and your the way of the Wolf Right. Look I and listen to it so I'm going to have to go with a math. Actually read it again but the stuff that you're talking about resonated because that's why I told me all about replicating and what you're talking about. There are the details right the the value is in the inefficiencies and telling people this little detail. This is why they're thinking at this. is I mean rats like changing so I really loved it in fact I'm probably GonNa read that thing like I'm the type that really like but I have to work at it to me. It doesn't come easily interesting. Listen I bet you if you test the your Iq you're really high. You're really smart guy and so funny to watch a limiting belief at work here. Yeah right because you're actually really smart but because when you were younger some gotten you you got me. I'm not really I'm just not that's not who I am and once. We think that we're not something just attack things or try things that essentially essentially a run counter to the police. Let me give you another taken. You made a statement before which I agree with you said about this whole thing that the fear of failure and stuff that Corollas. Yeah let me. But will the way of the warrior by Erwin McManus. Who was my pastor? Mosaic I was always the most sacred link. Oh Nice Yeah I was shocked. I liked it but I didn't expect it was music and let them use a difference. I couldn't believe it I walked narrows. There is a rock and roller. Yes pretty cool. I enjoyed it actually did enjoy. Yeah someone just drag me at the last second and as I walked in I was expecting like you know some speeches. She's like you know it was pretty. It was pretty cool. Actually bruins really good went over. And I'm like Hollywood house but what what I was trying to swap assize right right so like my belief is that it's true that people don't try things 'cause if you're failing no wants the fails in some element of truth but I think far more important when it comes to people not going out and really taking action is not so much they think they're gonNA fail. Is that when they run the movie out. They really don't believe they have what it takes to succeed. Yes they can't see themselves like you know. I don't really possessed zest. Sales skills of the marketing savvy or the connections or the cat but like excellent access to the actual stuff. I would need so. Why do all the work mark right at? But I think it's because they have a history of not keeping the promises that they make themselves right and they think that doesn't matter but your unconscious mind remembers everything so when you constantly lie to yourself you're just creating a bigger hole and let you know you and I are about. Hey let's put it. Let's put ourselves in pressure situations so we'll force in increase so we correct your agency level inter necessity level goes up. We can handle those is pressure situations because we've have a bunch of wins under our belt where we always keep our word when we say we're going to do something we do it no matter what. There's no excuses that's right. I don't when people have a history of never coming through. They make excuses on why they can do it but it's because they have no sure often it's right they have no self trust because they've never proven anything to themselves and that's why I tell people. Hey whatever promise you make to someone if you tell someone you're going to go to lunch inch with. Don't frigging light on him. See you're sick. You go to lunch. It could be or it could be a big thing like when I was a habit. It's a habit of getting into being honest with yourself being truthful when all your interactions and when I first started my job I told my mom and ninety days. This House is going to be yours man. I was working in watts. California till eleven o'clock at night and you know how many deals I got after ten thirty easily over one hundred and that brought my confidence through the roof. If I didn't have that why I would've sat on the curve like like everyone else did at eight o'clock right so let's talk about two things. They are number one that that that strategy to me that you just laid out I wanNA. Let's really dig it that I think that's that's one of the most underutilized strategies for success which is publicly stating to someone. What you're going to do and giving embarrassing harassing yourself into success example when I got out of jail right And I was writing my book my first book the Wolf of Wall Sales on page twenty and I really was was concerned that could I finish this book. It's like such a daunting task. I never written a book before I wasn't a natural writer So you know what I did. I went to my daughter. It was twelve. Guess what I said that he's GonNa write a bestseller and he's going to become a famous author as she was like. Oh my God. And then. She went to my ex-wife's always Fox. Oh yes sure you become approver but the point was is that by doing that I was. I was almost using my own worst fears of a phone short in the eyes of my daughter. Empower me to do things that that would. It's not going to be the most comfortable thing right now so stepping into uncomfortable because but publicly declaring this is one on do not playing small playing safe of putting out there in the world and and then having no choice and by the way you know what I've done a lot and not succeeded. I put out there and fallen short. Yeah but that's okay. Since these are the other side is is i. I think the one thing about yourself as you're not scared about being wrong In other words as an entrepreneur. I've been wrong so much more than I'm right. It's very seldom that I it on the head but when you do you only got one fifty million or more wall if you learn how to be wrong as an entrepreneur you can. I try something if it next next and in my office I am constantly trying to come up with the next thing. The next thing most next next that's all pages one success right. All it takes is one success and I think too many people play it safe right and when you play it safe. You're essentially squeezing faith out of the picture right if you only do what you know. You're good at if you only go where you know and you only do the things that you know you will succeed and then you remove any need of faith right. And that's why I've always embraced uncertainty right because I realized that uncertainty uncertainty is what allows me to grow. Uncertainty uncertainty. Is what allows me to my my need. For God's heightened and it's usually there that he meets me me and we accomplish great great things and that's always been my thing. I realized the only way I will ever grow is if I put myself in these uncomfortable. If trouble situations in the second thing I'd say to that Jordan is the deadline is huge back. I got this formula that I've used to attain everything everything I've wanted in my life and you probably know this formula already. Ninety nine percent of the people actually know it. The problem is they misapply it. Most people are waiting to have to take action to them. Become whatever it is that they want to have right because if you WANNA save eighty thousand dollars to finally go to an open house to finally become a homeowner in the problem with that way of thinking it's related to a.

"Be glad you did. You'll come. I wonder who Elian Gonzalez from like back when the kid from Cuba and remember the visual stuck mad at the kid like this little cave all the guns in the robbed for sure. Wow and then of course so yeah we run out of money so then I end up you know we we ended up in Huntington Park. which again is polar opposites in Huntington Beach? People think a tiny to beat just like now Huntington Park which is South East. La County borders watts right and at first it was okay. We found a three bedroom apartment however we started run out of money again so then we had two of the bedrooms in the apartment so now we had a live in this one bedroom. Tiny little apartment room that had basically no windows. And how you know. Now I'm about thirteen fourteen and as you can imagine it wasn't the best living situations cramped. Yeah it was dirty I still remember roaches waking me up in the middle of the night right and and the one thing I did get was a lot of love. Mom gave me a lot of love gave this are siblings. A Lotta love sure. And the other thing that really helped out is she. She pray over me every morning every night. At a very young age I began believed that God was with me that I was blessed and that was huge for me. Because you know I think if you're ever going to take on on some big dreams you're GonNa take on some God's challenges and self sufficiency is no longer an option at this point. I believe it's that point that you better believe in a higher power that little little confidence that you need one guy went after these big goals because we need when you're going after big goals you're GonNa get a lot of resistance a lot right Arcus that you have to go through. So that helped tremendously and I became obsessed with making a hundred grand a year because I attributed that to getting my my my family out of the hell hole that we were in and I just remembered literally thinking. I don't know how I'm GonNa do this. But I'M GONNA make a hundred grand a year minimum and I guess that came about because the only successful person I new back in those days was a car salesman and he was making a hundred grand a year so I was just like worst comes to worst so cars but I'm Gonna I'm GonNa make a hundred grand. It's really interesting because that that number was the same number that I I was chasing when I was in my late teens and it was about you. Know about two grand a week or something like sort of like that. If I had made that much money I would everything everything have arrived and then I found out about a friend of mine making a million bucks. Walsh and I was like get the fuck out no way. I didn't think it was even possible when I saw so it just closed loop on your debt. So what was cocaine because cocaine okay trafficking everything how did he ultimately go for a really long about ten years. Yeah all right so in their in house you you you have this burning desire. Because you're you're Y is really to take care of your family. Get them out of this hellhole. Take Care of you. I guess you almost like with a father to the your brothers in some ways right man house So let's jump now to. How did you accomplish that at a very young age? Yeah and you know I always tell people too. Many eight people worry about the what the when the where the how and they don't worry about the why the why and I think the wife is the one that you cannot be wrong about. You could be wrong about everything else but the wind needs to be right because I think I think the wise of the light that will guide your path. You know you have a strong enough while you'll find the how for sure that that's that literally was my story. My wife was so strong so anyways I went to Tried getting a job at fifteen years old. No one would hire me and of course the only person the only people that took a chance on me was this this call center and I was looking up to get a job in at the time. I thought this is the worst possible job I could have ever gotten whereas I was very shy and timid kid. In fact I'm still alosha accent at the time or no you already drop it. I think I had an accident because I was stuck in the e I was stuck in. ESL To the eighth grade yes. My mom didn't speak any English so I was stuck in class. I had to go to the counselor saying Hey I don't know why I'm still in ESL. But I think I should be getting out to kitty a a friend of mine. WHO's from Mexico? Yeah he's Tuesday. Has You know your Xerox. Now's zero I would never know that you're outside the country but he still has a bit of an accent and he is story was was he was actually born here but didn't speak English but she's seven years. Never learned. English was one of the. Yeah Yeah really interesting so so okay so you had how did you. Did you have an accident on the phone. You were like sixteen or your. It didn't really matter because I was selling in Spanish Cerro distance over of selling long distance Spanish customers right fine but now I'm so grateful to have a job and so fearful lose it that I just went in there. I outworked everyone right and then by the time I I was eighteen years old I became the manager of about forty people. I started to make a thousand dollars a week and myself worth just when the roof Roger and I always tell people in order to grow your your self worth you have to put yourself in situations that demand more than you think you're worth and when you succeed exceed at those situations yourself where it goes through the roof but you know I was fifteen years old and I had this dream of making one hundred grand a year. By the time I was twenty one and I knew the only way that would happen was if I became the manager by the age of eighteen. Right so I just went all in knowing very well that the odds were stacked against me and the truth of the matter. Is I think most people at that point would have never attempted that because of the fear of failure sure they would let that fear paralyze them and I I was just. This is my only chance and of course once that happened I began to believe that I deserved more. Because you know you can only receive what your mind can accept mm-hmm and I didn't see any other eighteen year olds doing the type of stuff that I was doing so I began to believe in my heart like holy crap. I am worth one hundred. And then about three years later I now now became the right hand of the VP of sales. Okay so now. About three years later he walks into my office and he says Edwin. I'M GONNA resign and I'm going to start this alarm company and I want you to come with me and helped me start it. He says I can't guarantee you the seventy thousand dollars a year that you make this back in ninety nine so it was a decent money But if you make this work you can possibly double triple quadruple. What you make here in the first thing I thought was man? This guy's making two hundred fifty grand a year. He's resigning so you must be pretty serious about this opportunity. The the second thing I thought was if he's willing to teach me how to start a company from the ground up then. This is exactly the opportunity I've been looking for as far as mentor ship. And then the third thing. I was a big dreamer. Man I used to ditch Fifth and sixth period and I would literally drive a Rodeo drive to window shop and then I'd go look at all the houses in Hollywood hills in Beverly Hills and I'd say man one day I'm GonNa get here right and of course I go back and get depressed. Huntington Park but I A new. That was my one shot to make it go free right so I go for it I go all in. Everyone thinks I'm crazy. Because how are you going to have a job. That's paying you seventy thousand dollars with benefits and all that good stuff but You know I think touching the dream was big for me. Because when I went to West Beverly Hills and Hollywood hills I started seaman. People dress different airmen people some nice looking women out here love the food out here and Touching the dreamy realize that there was a lot bigger things on there then just Huntington Huntington Park made me realize that seventy thousand dollars a year wasn't crap right and it made me got my subconscious mind to go to work on finding opportunities unity's to make that dream happen when the opportunity came out was like boom. This is my chance and I went all in but I did make a mistake though I didn't fully commit so I figured out a way to Convince my seniors at the time to change my schedule so I can go in seven. AM to three PM. And then I'd get off work and then I'd go from four PM ten PM. The problem was that I had low stress. Low performance is what I call it right at. I needed you to put myself in a pressure situation. I didn't write I back in the day. I would say the exact scenario be like. You know if you're looking at the help wanted the section while you're sitting in my boardroom. And yet kind of had this other possible exit ramp. You're already Fox. You GotTa have to put your back against the wall. They'd give yourself basically really no chance on. The consequences of failure have to be so dire and unthinkable that you basically have no choice but to succeed in. Its as long as you edging your bets right that one of the biggest mistakes that I see a lot of the millennials make right now and also old but says that's the twentieth thirty. They ah they just like they tried to keep one foot in success and one foot and safety and and I understand that strategy for someone's fifty five and sixty. Yeah with lots of bills bills loss of response to where if you do make a miss that there are bad you know really could be Dr Consequences going person at twenty you fucking or you have an opportunity. You've got to go all me up and just make it like if I fail. Nam Screwed Yup right. And you know what's funny so the first ten days that I was in my business I didn't sell one one frequent alarm right but it's because I was still making thirteen hundred bucks the other place right so it wasn't until I fully resigned all of a sudden I couldn't memorize in ten days it memorized. And and then that following Monday I had so much confidence that I just went in there and I sold five and one day I made fifteen hundred bucks in one day I remember. I couldn't sleep that night because I'm my damn. I just made him one week. One day. What I used to make an a week? Imagine if I could do this I am. I started dreaming crazy. And I think that's just a good example of leveraging the most amount of pressure on you see let's skip over. The issue became very successful salesperson right. Well I'm interested in. It is time now when you decide to really go on your own and you're really gopher because now you're extremely successful so let's just because go. We could talk for you. I want to go to the point now. Okay so you become a top closer in that industry right. There comes a time. Obviously what was your turns as. I'm going to have my own place. Let's start right ad that come about. Yeah and what was that.

My sister and I ended up in a foster home. Awhile about eight months later. Our parents get acquitted of charges. Okay we are now reunited with them. Were thinking this nightmare is over. However for the next four years our home would get rated at least once a year and then finally on that fourth year our home gets raided one last time and this time they were able to put away my dad for a long time?

Everyone's videotaping you and posting it. Why would anyone sign up for the next gig. They've already seen it online.

You're doing five shows a week you. It's important now because even like the netflix specials. Those are usually from a tour. You're in on every single show.

"beverly hills" Discussed on Reality Life with Kate Casey
"It was from people who thought that she was awesome in a weird way. So anyway, I'm Alison fan. Okay. Tell me about the the casting of Dana Wilkie and Carlton because they were definite characters. They were great. So Dana was friends with Taylor and had been. Yeah. So so that's that was our connection to today, and they were close. Friends and Dana had appeared on camera in season one before becoming part of the extended cast is a friend in season two. And so that's that's that story. And then Carlton, I think was a client of the same facialists as one of the other house lives. I think that's backing my brain to remember how we we got the Carlton, and I think that's what it was when you had to show up to still mean in her backyard, and there were women on stripper poles. Did you ask yourself? How you fell into this television dream or did you did you worry how would play out for viewers? Well, I think the the a couple of things one is the the fun thing was that that actually is a very Beverly Hills Hollywood lifestyle. So we like that it was someone who was not at all pudding any of that on for the show, but who really live that way. And and anybody who lives in L A knows that it is is it's a place where you find someone living in a twenty million dollar mansion who host parties with strippers on poles. And so that's a real thing. I think that one of our concerns was that the audience would actually get to know Carlton beyond all of the crazy extra Noel, you know, sort of features and and wild things because wanted to make sure that they would give her a fair shake. And so that was one of the challenges is not sort of typecasting her by by some of the lifestyle features that were really over the top that of course, we really like television producers, but I think might prevent you. From digging little deeper and getting to know the real person. And so, you know, I think that was hard for her and her one year on the shell tell me about the casting of brandy Glenville was her connection to the cast brandy new Adrian through some mutual friends. And and so, and it was not terribly close to her. But they knew each other. And they had I think had if you've dinners with friends, and so that's how the touchy came into our world, something, I always wondered was is there within the show sort of the caste system. Like, I feel like Kyle is like old Hollywood old money. And then you have somebody who like brandy, for example. She's the she was the housewife of soap opera actor. So it's just like any other city in DC or New York. There's there's a sort of a hierarchy is there one that exists within Beverly Hills and within the show. Well, I think within Beverly Hills. I think. Not necessarily as much as with other cities because Hollywood is very fluid and people are up people are down. And and I don't think that it's as much based on lineage completely. So I think that it is it a little bit more open than I think other cities are I think within the show itself. We really take great pains not to give anyone any any sort of special status. And obviously people who've done the show for Weil. You know, have a certain sense of establishment. But, but we know I mean, I think that you know, we really we want everybody in the on Somboon to be valued. And we want to give everyone a fair chance to be the best that they can be and and really as lame as it sounds. We always do save that everyone is only as good as the unsolvable on the whole. And I think that that is. I think that's really true, and that could be tough obviously during production because the the shows obviously feature the ups and downs of relationships between the cast members. But I do think that it's important for everybody to feel like they are a part of the group and they're all valued..

She took care of him mother but but after she died not only took a home away that made her earn her keep by running his own personal fan club what I know from Natalie's will is that everything was left to Robert Wagner he knew that and you know she made provision for her mother and close being donated to her sister and if the the kids being taken care of by Willie Mae the nanny but all all of her assets and Natalie Wood was the frugal one not only what is the person who saved the millions shed many millions of dollars and many asset and it was all left to Wagner by now lonner understood the message that she was no longer welcome in our world but what happened next. Exclude shock is still. I got a call from an agent Lana Ruin Perkins. I'm like wow how are you how nice what's going on for reference role in Perkin's recently pasta why at the edge of ID Foale and was one of the founding partners of C. I. which is one of the most powerful full Hollywood talent agencies in the world's? We chatted superficially for a couple of minutes. He said I'm going to tell you something and tell you this because I I really like you as a person and I said what and he said stop trying to get a job in production or acting. You've been blacklisted by Robert Wagner. I said he knows that many people who give a good goddamn with our work or not said we got a child to support so I started had calling production companies this like Oh. This is what I worked as a social bruiser but I've been director of development I was. Vp them busy and I did this and this and this and this could and get a job couldn't get a job and didn't have an acting agent anymore because I had hung that up to go into production which I loved loved loved it and then I got the phone call from Rolling Perkins. I never said anything about the blacklisting because there was nothing I could do. It didn't work in the industry but I worked. I worked as a a sales girl at new the. Va furniture is furniture. I worked at a a doll shop and collectibles in sales and opened it and close the store for Adam. I worked at sprint. Guy Did a lot of things so let's get this strike. Lana Wood was also also a rising star and played a bond girl opposite sean connery in diamonds off forever and now she was a shop girl selling dolls and and mobile funds while Lana struggled to build a life for herself. Take care of her daughter and mother the unanswered questions surrounding Natalie's death fell by the wayside as she focused on simply getting by on the other hand. Dennis could not stop thinking about what happened to naturally he had to tell the truth about what he saw and he could no longer keep it a secret about a year and a half after Natalie was gone was the first time that Dennis this said to me there was foul play involved in that at least death and then it took about six months after that where he told me about the bottle smashing smashing and the arguing and that's when I started to go to work on writing and the from the minute I heard that that foul play was involved in Natalie's death. I just felt a blanket of obligation to get the truth out there. I mean Natalie deserved it on the next fatal voyage and I said you know what I think we we need to call somebody.

"Potential cracks in his story had to keep Dennis in line on message and under control in an effort to do so. Rj Hollywood card and Got Dennis a job on his popular up your TV show heart-to-heart Agyei thought he could buy Dennis's silence Frank West more he was like Rj's like like right hand man and he says you need to get him to do something because it's not good him just being idle all that time he said you get him. Let's get him in the in the screen actors guild and you get him into being the extra and you get them on you. Get them on heart to heart is the benefit him because you know what if there was the benefit me. It would have been more than just a job being an extra. I mean at that time. Extra is paying seventy six dollars a day and if he was doing something benefit me he would have given me like some bit parts for something like that. You know that would have benefited me because then you would would be making some money life is TV extra wasn't working out and Dennis desperately missed the live he had previously working in and around boats so so without Jay's approval he began to do basic maintenance on the splendor but that also became a source of stress for Dennis. I felt like I was in real danger a few times in regards to Robert Wagner because I remember I recall one time when knows stranger. It came down to the dock and he's nice. He said he said you know he's gotTa be aware of what would make him say something like that and it just made my stomach. Khan and drop and then another time I got a phone call and I wish I remember the guy's name and he told me is you know you you you you better what very careful and things you say and I thought Oh my God i. I thought I think I started to think of myself. This is something you see on TV where you know somebody's getting a their their life threatened and you know my stomach just got all he really really butterflies and I thought I think is trying to tell me something here. You know as a matter of fact I kinda still still feel that way if something ever happened I'm sure they can pinpoint why it happened in and through. Did you know so I mean if something happens. It happens The day I left Dr Wagner's house he gave me a check for six thousand dollars and he said you can probably use this. Get Your own apartment and maybe see if you can start out on your own now and they left with a six thousand dollar cheque and that was like Kay Dennis. You're on your own and that's the last last we ever contacted each other. though Dennis had left Los Angeles and was now away from Agi. In the accompanying media spotlight he remained deeply scarred by the events that took place that not in nineteen ninety-one around these time Lana was also seeing first hand the Daca more domineering side of her brother-in-law aside side that had frightened her sister on more than one occasion though she had filed to speak to him at his home after the funeral Lana still wanted to make an effort to stay dying touch and remain a family. She loved Courtney. Anna Tasha wanted desperately to stay in their laws but Agyei felt out of the woods. You remember the next time that I made an attempt all of a sudden all my God. It's his birthday is coming up. You and I was worried about him being alone on his birthday because I'm an idiot blatantly idiotic calling the house and Katie Wagner answering the phone I are an and his birthday is coming in and what are we going to do and I'll take him someplace special special and and you come in the kids in the thing and and she said Oh everything's been planned all okay you don't have to worry about anything and I said Oh okay what what's going on and she. She said we're just having a party here and I said okay great what time and she literally said to me. you know it's just GonNa be. RJ's France and I said Yes yes Katie and those were also all Natalie's friends and my friends and she said well around whatever time and and I said fine putting any pride origo aside Lana would attend odd jobs birthday party with a friend at the time Allen and I went and shopped for a gift for him and we went to the House and gave him his gift. Nothing me made it very clear that I was not welcome. There and I don't know why other than okay it's tough. Death is tough and also face that so that was it we went out into the living room and I said I wanNA leave. We're just we left and what about Natalie's daughters Courtney in Asia nothing from the kids no contact nothing. That's title whole life was turned up everything they took away so I at that point started falling apart and things on the went from bad to worse when the issue of Natalie's Fawn will when testament had to be dealt with.

I was taking right up to Robert Wagner's bedroom where his lawyer Paul dippers was there and he told me they call me directly face to face. This is GonNa be our story. Is this well. We're GONNA say you're going to be appointed to one of our lawyers and Mrs what are stories going to be. The story was that when when Natalie went missing that she must have gone outside her stateroom 'cause the dinghy was banging against the whole boat and and she she couldn't sleep leap so she tried to retie Dane and she must have slipped and fell in the water and maybe she bumped her head ahead on the swim platform and then wants to split water. Nobody knew anything she was gone. She was missing Dennis soon. Found out that sticking to a certain story was not all that would be required of him by Jay and he's entourage Dennis was asked and agreed to stay at the Wagner Hon and thinking he would be of comfort to R. J. and the girls as well and I was to stay living at the house there was because I felt like like maybe RJ myself. We needed each other. the housekeeper.

It'll be your life. It's hard to place judgment on anyone's actions. After losing a loved one that moving on from the love of you live just wake softer does beg the question. Just how much did Natalie really mean to Agyei J and Jill Saint John would eventually marry on May Twenty Sixth of of Nineteen Ninety and I remain married today but I can't help it. Wanda Eve Jill like Natalie and Barbara stanwyck before her is just another a woman who are Jay has used he's on gang ironically someone who has been repeatedly accused of using Agyei and the story of Natalie's death but there is strong evidence to suggest that like Natalie Dennis too was a victim of objects it was more or less like he knew that I was in his house and he knew that I couldn't go anywhere because there was people at the front door you know because there was a lot of media out there on cannon drive off seemingly wasn't taking any chances and kept Dennis away from a Ravenous S. press who will Hungary any additional details that could help explain what had happened to nationally and as a tactic Cape Dennis happy and quiet. Jay made sure there was plenty of alcohol listen about keeping me in their house if I don't get out to anybody and start talking to anybody. That's the bottom line was yeah. I mean that's what it was and and and to wake up in the morning dentist. You WanNa have a bloody Mary yeah that sounds good afternoon. Hey here I am. I'm GONNA Beautiful House. In Beverly Hills you know from a little one bedroom being shared by two other guys in marina a dollar rate. You know it's like you know it's like wow this is really bad. Rj attempted to Mike Dennis feel like an extended vacation and and although Dennis did enjoy the perks at first he didn't take long for him to feel trapped was dennis a guest or worse a prisoner he would go to work or something. It'd be left there. I'd be left there by myself. I lay down take nap could maybe go out to the pool. You know what I mean I was. I was like I was. I was living like Oh. This is great. I'll go by the pool. I was like you know I can't go anywhere. What what am I. GonNa do like I couldn't really go anywhere. I believe I only got out of that house. A few times I mean I I was. I was starting to really feel claustrophobic. You know like at nighttime when I would go to my room. You know if I felt like I want to go downstairs or or maybe just you know just move around. I I really couldn't do that because the the first time I put my hand on the doorknob of the bedroom that I was in it was like a magnetic locks they wouldn't allow me to open the door and small TV in there and I. It was just like it was just like I was in prison. He knew that I could really go outside because there was a bodyguard on the outside of the door the revelation that Dennis was literally locked in his room inside. RJ's hone and under around the clock surveillance does seem outrageous. How could this have happened. Actually my girlfriend came a knock on the door there one time and RJ bodyguards his name was Joey Vein and she. She told him if she says she's all WanNa see dense and he says well he's he. He can't see him right now. He's he's busy. She was real spunky and became back gets. You need to see Dennis right now and that's when I told them unless you know I need to go. See my girlfriend to chill out a little bit. See my girlfriend you you know and that's why they took mayor there. When I was spending some time with their I mean we're sitting Lou Room here. Just join ourself and also the banging on the door comes. We have to go now. Let's won't Damascene. You know kind of just been here for like a half an hour this now we gotta go now you know. I said hey wait. Can you know my girlfriend got a little upset. They literally grabbed me by my neck and literally drag me by my neck down the sidewalk and threw me in their car and took me back to Wagner's house. I was like man. This is just getting to be wait too much. Dennis knew he was in trouble at the time he confided in just one person he's close friend. Marty Rulli who explains explains when he was told say nothing he went along with it but deep down he knew he he wouldn't be able to live with that. He was very afraid he he in his mind deep inside he knew what Wagner's capable of and you know he's thinking will I be next Jay was getting more desperate by the day to keep the press from finding any.
