"Wars daily on this July 15th happy Friday, everyone. Some things just drive home how much things have changed. Birkenstock, the cult favorite sandals that have been around for roughly 250 years, are launching their first paid content campaign around foot health. Teaming up with tea brand, the content studio that's part of The New York Times advertising department. The campaign is called feet are ugly for a reason. It will include a three part documentary series covering the importance of foot health and why foot friendly shoes are mostly well, ugly. The campaign is meant to strengthen consumer facing brand purpose, marketing dive reports, content campaigns are meant to be more educational or informative rather than being strictly promotional, while still bolstering the sponsoring organization's brand. The reference to ugly, a bit of a wink and a nod to Burke's reputation of putting function before form in the name of foot health, with somewhat dowdy results. That hasn't stopped the cult favorites following, however, in recent years, birkenstock sandals have been as popular as ever, even showing up in runway, fashion shows. Birkenstock rival keen, also known for functional footwear that isn't likely to win any beauty contests, is reinforcing its brand's commitment to doing good in a different way. By actually doing good in recent months, keen has pledged €50,000 in both cash and products to support Ukrainian refugees at the Poland Slovakia and Hungary borders. Footwear news reports. The company is also partnered with outdoor Afro and YMCA on making waves a program designed to address teaching black youth to swim and reduce drowning. The company released a limited edition sandal collection to raise funds for swimming lessons. It's also been making footwear from car leather and pledged to be free of PFCs within three years to be more sustainable. It's nice to see companies putting their values out there, but as we've reported before, that's not always entirely altruistic. Customers especially of the millennial and zoomer generations want to see companies acting responsibly and sustainably. They want to do business with good corporate citizens. So showing off values is a business move too. But there's some good news for fashionistas in this story as well. Ugly shoe brands may be do gooders that are good for you, but they're also in style. The grand DOM of fashion Vogue herself has given its blessing in a summer story called shop chunky sandals for a bold summer look. The trend that started when the pandemic had its prioritizing comfort over style appears to be sticking around a while longer. And for those who were sick of pinching painful shoes, that's gotta count as a step in the right direction. From wondery, this is business awards daily.

"Seeing a return to the serious dressy heels or constricting footwear I'm seeing a lot more. Flats both in offices on runways in lookbooks and magazines. Yeah, I mean, how did we ever do that? I look at these heels. I have to admit I was never really a heel person, but right before the lockdowns, I just I decided I needed some. And now I look at them and I'm like, there's just no way. I'm never, ever putting those on. Yeah, but there had already been a lot of collaborations between high end fashion brands like birkenstock and converse and Adidas. And their headband sort of sneaker technology put into dress shoes. Yeah. And this idea that you could still look very professional and polished and dressed up wearing a pair of flats. But remember how that was so stigmatized back in the day, like, you know, not to dishon naturalizer or any of those other older brands. But I'll go ahead just for naturalizer. But it was like an old lady shoe, right? If you were looking for like a comfortable shoe that was totally not the hip and cool thing to do. And now I see cool sneakers everywhere. Yeah, I mean, I really own up to the fact that when the earliest stories I wrote when I came to Washington was about all of these women emerging from the metro looking like they were headed into some law office from the ankles up, but they were wearing the equivalent of workout sneakers on their feet. Like working girl, like Melanie Griffith. Exactly. Let all the dreams wake her name and I thought, oh my God, this column is going to be the one that leads my obituary or something. Because people were so outraged. So in your best guidance then. So I'm still working at home. We should just admit this. And I am having a real mental block about going back to work and not wearing my athleisure wear. Your suggestion to me is just try it and see what happens. Maybe it's not so scary. I would say ease into it. I mean, I don't think you have to go like a nice pair of yoga pants. Yoga pants to the full three piece suit was never happened. Ensemble. But I think you could go from yoga pants to maybe a pair of up style track pants. And maybe a simple pullover. And a pair of high style birkenstocks. I think that's like a very gentle shift. We don't even know each other that well. And you just nailed my look. That was perfect. I

I had michael on cautious over a year ago. And i'm learning something new as i keep moving along with his gases them platforms iterating and people in our shop. Affi- kind of sphere and our ecosystem even though we record once and we talk about you know the problems that these different solutions are solving. The realities are is that as time goes on. There's more stories to tell platforms enhanced themselves more customers get involved. They get millions a feedback loop coming but what sort of things can we improve upon and these things are action into these platforms. So i've kind of made it a mandate now to make sure that it meets annually. Most notable app partners platform people that are in our ecosystem. A half to interview themselves. So michael kirk. Heresy is the co founder of a company called deliver and its da l. I v. e. r. deliver and they're a fulfillment service and what they do. Is they help. Shop if i- merchants of any size to offer two day and they're really pushing hard now for next day delivery with a lot of buyers depending on the market. Some where where they're located. It's a great conversation. There's a ton of learning's really good Bonus at the end of the episode that you can take advantage of so michael. Welcome to your encore recording and ecommerce faslane oxidizer on steve my pleasure. I may have butchered at the top of the show. About what exactly deliver does have a pretty good knowledge a few brands that are using your but i would love to hear it in your own words about the problems that you're solving for shop if i'd brands and store owners. Yes i mean delivers an ultra fast film at service for online brands. So we will enable a merchant to offer two day or next day delivery across the country at really affordable rates typically near ground rates. And we do it a little bit unique in that. We don't own any assets in our networks or entirely asset light and we partner with over fifty warehouses across the country in over ten different carriers to position your inventory really close to buyers so we can offer such fast shipping speeds at at fairly affordable rates. I love it. I know one thing i notice too and the push. For next day order fulfillment is something i think. Fueled for sure by amazon and because of that is almost seems like customers demanding that because they're used to that level of service by amazon and so it seems like that's a differentiator for a lot of consumer brands. And think you know. And i think that fuels the fast shipping. I'm sure we'll get into it and few minutes. But i think that fast shipping really fuels the lifetime value and then the word of mouth and the positive experiences that a customer gets that surprise and delight when something comes quicker than normal. It happened recently with by my wife ordered from brooklyn and we're in canada here and brooklyn and arrived in two days. Blew her mind. Even though it was coming from the us and cleared duties and taxes and customs like it was all an amazing experience. And i think knowing that so now. She's a lifelong fan now brooklyn and because of that. Yeah well there's a few components there. I think number one is what is fueling. This drive towards faster and faster delivery. I think when you see e commerce percent total retail sales making a jump of essentially five years over a span of of twelve months that we've seen over covid you know. I think e commerce is really starting to compete with with physical retail but e commerce brings a unique advantage. Which is it's just vast amount of selection and you know pretty affordable rates but then the element that's been missing has been this convenience element that amazon has been really at the forefront of so i think as you start to see e commerce take a bigger percentage of retail says in order for it to take a bigger percentage of retail sales film. It is going to have to get faster and we're not just talking about next talking about getting into same day delivery as well and i think how does that translate. Though to a business i think we we're under the mindset that fast film it should pay for itself and it because i think that's the biggest thing that comes up with a brand is who's going to pay for this. I don't want to pay for this. And it pays for itself in a few ways. Number one is that you should see the revenue increase from offering next day or two day. Delivery should outweigh any cost increase particularly with the deliver model where the prices of offering today and next day versus just standard regular shipping. There's not a huge delta around a dollar fifty difference number two is the element you talked about. Which is you're going to see higher customer. Nps better repurchase behaviors higher ltv on customers and we've developed a actually now our shop. If i page go to deliver dot com go to shop fight. We have a customer board now where we show all the different customers of deliver merchants and we showcase their reviews of the items specifically on shipping speed. There's so many different stories around people ordering an item needing to have it for someone's birthday and getting it on time within a day or within two days and how that makes them turns them into like you mentioned with your wife into into someone who's talking about the brand referring to other people so ultimately facile film it should pay for itself in most cases because that's what the customer wants and that's what customers expect today. Let's talk about your journey. A bit as i think it's nice to set the stage so why people build what they build. I mean i have the story. That i i know from a year ago when we chitchat. But there's a lot of new people listen to the show today that maybe haven't listened to the the older episode a year ago. But let's talk about you and your co founder on a couple points desire. Why build this platform and the expertise around wanting to partner up with warehouses in his technology to allow this to happen. Yeah i think it's going all the way back. I my journey really kind of starts. When i my last summer and in college i went to Internet company called twilla which not a lot of people knew about at the time. As in two thousand fifteen summer of twenty fifteen i was. I think the four hundred employees toil today for those who aren't aware as this sms messaging api business. There now i think valued over sixty billion dollars on the public market. But at the time they were very small they'd just hit a billion dollar valuation. So it was really exciting to be a kind of what time everyone was calling these unicorns and i got to learn about what business was like. And what was really interesting about is that they were infrastructures of service and they were applying a very easy to use interface to a very messy world telecom so prior twilla sending messages. You had to go and work. With a t and verizon each one had different pricing different contracts and so on and so forth and twitter basically removed all that they said okay. We're gonna make it really really easy to set up a messaging service. We're gonna have very clear pricing. You can use as much as you like actually kind of similar to what shop by ended up doing e commerce space and it was really interesting learning about that and i think as i laughed. I was okay. Well this is really interesting. Approach the time. You also had another company stripe. Who's doing something very similar. Obviously everyone knows how that went and then yet newer companies to like plaid replicated a similar model and as i left graduated college went and started started a company called symphony commerce and so they were like an ecommerce full agency and software solution for these really big brands so they worked with j brand jeans. Fredericks of hollywood fiji water raid some of these really big kind of old school brands. But they did so. They built the website at checkout. They did inventory management and they had integrations three pl and so i got to learn about all the different layers of the ecommerce dak. So how the checkout system works. How inventory management systems need to work a merchandising system how that works and of course how the orchestration and fulfilment side operates and when i learned about the film inside that seemed very similar to the telecom space preach willio finding a three pl. You had to negotiate all these different contracts and you had to say okay. I'm gonna pay for this amount of space. That amount of space continuing to scale was really really difficult. You know if you went from two warehouses of three warehouses. It was a huge change. Huge transition delay things by three to four months. And then lastly i mean this was something unique to the commerce. Realm is that there was no element of speed. Everyone said okay. Well i'm just gonna ship at standard and it gets when it gets there. You may gets there faster if you're good around how you position inventory. But that's on the brand figure out and even brands this large. It was very difficult for them to understand that. Most of them had come from the wholesale spaces where they were predominantly active. And so. that's where the idea for deliver came up was which was okay. What if we could build. A twi- leo or a stripe or plaid fulfillment with super simple pricing easy use on boarding and then that last element which was speed because we thought that retail from the feedback that we're seeing a lot of these really big brands. That retail and online retail was starting to merge physical retail but in order to do that fulfillment was going to play a critical role in that transition. So that's how you lead to the the component the three benefits of deliver which was fasching easy pricing. And you can use as much as you like as it came to the warehouse component. Which was the second part of your question. Why did we decide to not build the warehouses why wide we decided to partner with different third parties when we looked at the ecosystem. There was a lot of space. And you don't want to solve for a problem it doesn't exist so there. Today is a lot of space. There's a lot of these independent third party film providers across the country. I think the biggest issue when you look at the film today. Is that those independent third party film services number one are not really set up to work with thousands and hundreds of thousands of different merchants. They're set up for ten accounts and they know those ten accounts and inside now and that's what they do but also the border problem. When you look at fulfillment is not so much the warehousing automation piece that does get important when you're shipping millions of units per day potentially per hour. But you know if you're looking at a shop firebrand that is not where the issue is..

Changing Your Look After Coming Out

"Had heard from a listener. Who had come out in her thirties and was kind of wondering how she should change her style. Yes and also kind of dealing with friends feedback in changing of her style and we received such an amazing advice and thoughts from other listeners. That we wanted to share. We really did so. Here's our first email that were sharing today. I just finished mini episode one seventy eight and as a queer teenager. I felt that. I could provide some input here for the listener about their gay style. This year as come out as pan sexual unexplored my own style more. This is something i think about a lot. Recently i've changed so much of my wardrobe and found new things that make me comfortable in my look and my sexuality. What i've learned is that there are so many ways to be gay. You can really take any style and tweak it to express your identity and it doesn't have to be blatant for example. I've always had a darker edgier look and i've started wearing flannels with my goth. Clothes and makeup beans are also a nice touch that make everything a little bit gayer but not to gay also little rainbows are such an amazing and cute way to show your pride if none of these stereotypically gay items of clothing fit your taste. I have many friends who just like to dress and the colors that they feel express them instead of focusing on the items of clothing themselves. There's really no correct way to be queer and you can really and you really can make any item of clothing as as you want. True allies will support you no matter what you wear and no one should ever be pressured to dress in a way that they are uncomfortable with. Hopefully some of these suggestions help. Ps as a gen z. Are i must admit that. Cates use of the word ziesel her makes me cringe but of course i always appreciate the words. You guys make up as for trends. I think there's so much more acceptance of individuality in today's teens at the ones i know so whatever is considered popular online is really only. What a specific specific group of people are wearing regular life though. The controversy is always interesting and often hilarious to see Thank you teen listener. I loved us soak we. This was so such a great email to receive. I'm so honored. That teens are listening to this podcast. Oh the teens are so great. I think the teens are really great. Which terrifies me. Because i've always thought the teens were bad. Especially when i was a teen but i kinda think. Today's teens are awesome. Yeah i know it's really interesting. Yeah all right. You want to share this email diary. I would love to hike kantor. I wanted to write in response to the listener searching for her style. Post coming out coming out in my late twenty s i was so torn between looking to gay or two straight wanting to feel like my full self but also not wanting to seem like the stereotype who comes out and changes everything. It was helpful for me to consider. What stereotypically feminine elements of my style. Had i embraced. Because i truly like them. For example always having my nails done and other things had. I rejected. Because i was worried. Someone could suspect. I wasn't straight noticing what i had an impulse to like but held back from was usually an alert to that internalized homophobia rearing. Its head and usually was silly. I not buying fund metallic birkenstocks or not wanting to follow brandi carlile on instagram. I'm sorry to laugh. I'm laughing. Because i love brandi carlile and i. I love italian stocks. I did not realize that. Brandi carlile was Something that would lead someone to suspect that you weren't straight okay. So just like how. I tell the diet culture voice to get lost. So do i. Now try to tell the hetero normative voice in my head to shut up. Let me live when i find myself holding back from buying doing wearing listening liking something a helpful. A help fought narrative. Reframe for me. Was that many queer people have common interests were style just like many californians or new englanders or chefs have common interests or style. And none of those people aren't buying or wearing or doing something because it's to california or new england or sheffi so like what you like and if it gives people a clue that you're not straight so what it's not a secret and now you have a life more filled with things that feel good and bring you joy to boot as for the listeners. Friends my favorite way to kill those comments is a deadpan. That's weird or rude thing to say not creative that universally applicable

Two weeks later, and I have another new one. How about how about I'd like to see an alert, saying Charlie Baker has decided that he's done such a rotten job. He is only gonna take 25% of his pay. But how Here's my question for you. And you know, I'm working on a little secret project that involved some of the vaccine roll out, And I guess I wasn't sure if I was reading it right because Phase one in Massachusetts included long term care facilities, which is nursing homes, but also prisons. So Phase two, which includes people over 75, so unless you're an old person in a nursing home, regular old people are behind prisoners. Is that correct? Yes, Okay. I just wasn't sure because I said it out loud yesterday and I was I was with him my family and they said to me that cannot be correct. No, that that is correct. I mean, it's in some ways you could say that. They're just trying to avoid lawsuits because they all have these. You know these public interest Birkenstock wearing goateed man bond lawyers that will sue at the drop of a hat, so maybe they're just trying to avoid a lawsuit. That could be yet, you know? Yeah. No, I I agree with you How he really quickly. What else can people expect on today's show? I'm sure you have a lot of local stuff, but also some national news.

What did you Not crow, Bozz. Probable cause How many more it really is. I mean, every time you think CNN can't get worse, How can I talk about this all the time? Because I have how he added a lot of my stuff, and I say, Howie, if I made that mistake, and he just rolls his eyes because he's like I can't even fathom someone making that mistake and not kind of getting fired. Apparently Grace to there were four By the line four names on the Bible. I saw the original story 44.

And then something happened and it turned and it's gotten ugly. I mean, ugly defund. The cops hate the cops Violence on the streets. Our guest is the president of the Austin Police Association. Kenneth Cassidy. Welcome to the show, sir. Thank you for having me on Yes, sir. Are you did you grow up in Austin? No, sir. I didn't. I grew up in Dallas, Texas on then came to Austin after I get out of the military. Okay, So at what age did you come to ask 28 years of age. Okay? And how long ago was that? That was 23 years ago just marked where I'm eligible to retire. Thank God. My brother retired from his first law enforcement job and then took another one. And he used to could tell me too. The day I got. I got three years, two months, 14 days and probably about six hours. I had to run it again. He knew. So I have Austin Austin has changed a lot in those 23 years, hasn't it? It really has. And you described it. A Zapata's goes, I could very beginning. And really, What has turned into is a Ah Ah, a council run by agenda pushed by Marxism. On DH encouragement of anarchy on it's just there's a few council members that push that on beat the other council members over the head if they go against it, and it's been very disappointing to watch over the last couple of years. Headland. Austin City Council cuts Police Department budget by one third mainly through reorganizing some duties out from law enforcement. How much of those cuts gonna cost cost you in terms that I bring a service? It's going to cost a lot of, you know the number that came out with 150 million What it really is A lot of that is just transfers of departments to other agencies. But there is 21 million that cut our overtime budget from $11 million down to $500,000, which will blow through in about two months on and then we also have You know, with, unfortunately had to move our gang unit are parks police, Um rtw units and several others off specialized Patrol back onto our normal patrol so they can answer 911 calls and other huge thing that they did was they cut out any academy classes. This year for the rest of this year, and for most of next year, then that's going to devastate the department. And we'll have to make more cuts of people that are working specialized units. Probably our motor got guys that are on motorcycles and people like them. To go back to patrol and then no longer perform the function that they do now. The story says. The Austin City Council unanimously voted to cut its police department budget by $150 million on Thursday after officers and the city's top cop faced months of criticism over the killing of an unarmed black and Hispanic man. The use of force against anti police brutality, protect protesters and the investigation of the demonstrators fatal shooting by another citizen. This is the same sort of nonsense. It's going on across the country. Questioning every police decision, and they should all be reviewed. But this sort of attack on the police imputing their motives. How would you describe the morale of your officers Have the officers do you have on the streets? You know? Well, we were authorized 1936. And then go out and subtract 200 from that. That's what we're authorized now. Andi have probably right now about messing around 1745 left on my look. And you want the mark? The more out? You asked about the morale. The morale is in the dumps, and we have people leaving about every day to go to other departments on resigning from the police department. To go to private industry on you know this was once the City Council asked for it and getting it on and you know, people are not going to stay here and work for a department. That doesn't support him. Unanimously. You did. You couldn't have one city councilman, hold out and say this is wrong. That's just shocking that you wouldn't have one law and order guy on the council. You know, we're working on that We have some elections coming up in November. But like I told you earlier, we have a few city council members the love to throw the race card and accuse you of being a racist if you don't vote with them, and unfortunately in this city that message carries today. You think crime is worse in Austin today than it was 23 years ago? I think it's If you ask me that question a year ago, I would say that crime was much better now than it was when I first started, But now we're going in the wrong direction. That's probably about even with When I when I got here are Barbara Homicide Murder rate is up around 64% this year when you know we have robbery crews coming in from Houston, San Antonio. Man, some other crews that work here. They're causing a lot of violence on DH May ham in the city and you know that's left up our officers to fix that. When I were working for a city government that doesn't support him, man, it makes it very difficult. I don't mean to brag, but we got some good robbery crews in Houston. I mean, we got some first class San Antone is not an island. The folks were sending you that some of the best you You are getting are free Agents of way. Got some really, really, really, really good ones. I can't begin to tell you. Can you hold with us for just a moment? Absolutely..

Okay, she said this while we were out in public, wearing jeans and flippy floppies. With me and from that day, that was probably like twenty time. I will not wear flip flops outside unless I'm like in my yard arm, APP beach. Aware another Sandal aware another shoe, but I don't just like run out to the store and my flipflops right, not even. So I feel like you and I have similar rules for fashion except mind stopped in my ankles working out my body. Stopped at your neck. It's amazing how someone will come in and say something small, and just like flip things for you like that's a new role. I'M GONNA. Live my life by you know what I mean.

Pan Stomach fashion and art lack there of. I fashion story. Do you need your purse? This is based on an article by Lou Stoppard for the New York Times called the Phantom Handbag. It starts out once upon a time. I didn't leave the house without it now of course because of Covid nineteen I no longer really leave the house I haven't carried my bag for months. Lou poses the question. Is this a permanent change? Or will the bag comeback again someday? So the bags back your carrying around now may be different than your designer or higher end bag, or just like the purchased schlep around a lot. A lot of people right now are taking around backpacks or totes. And prediction is that the market might change slightly that people will want canvas shoppers, something that is waterproof cross body bags with adjustable straps, so people can go. On or cycling like it's very practical.

I think that that's what I'd probably bring to Beth. The other two characters are maybe like my sister's rebellious in funny and and A little rougher on the edges and my friend is maybe a little bit more relaxed and loving and I'm of the nerdy rigid one that they're always sort of I rolling at and sort of like. Oh Beth didn't get the joke or Beth doesn't understand this or you know Does a little bit of catching up with Beth? And I think I have. They would have to explain to me. They reference something and I do. What is found there like Instagram Christina? Oh I don't know like you know. So they have to teach me stuff just like my kids just living somewhere else on the national scientists. Have no idea what I'm catching up. That's kind of Nice to know that the world well you know I figured if I was Gonna continue to live on planet earth I was going to have to join in some of the activities So when I started I got on instagram. I finally broke down with a little help from my friends and slowly easing into it. It's fun it I'm a I'm enjoying it. It's fun but it's work. Well it is to take a whole separate job. It's not just you doing this. People want to answers. Well you sort of feel like you want to share yourself and Be True to yourself. You know your image and personality so manipulated by interviews magazines in these kinds of things. So this is your platform to just say this is who I am and and it's not being manipulated by anyone else. This is just me. What vision do you think the public has of you? Just based on magazines and social media and the world outside I think that Life see you. Yeah I think a lot of people Assume that I'm sort of Joan from madman that I that maybe I'm a bit more stern or a little bit more uptight or maybe a little more put together a mess like I was there but gene you know dropping things on the floor girl I'm not nearly as sort of put together. And maybe prissy as I think people think maybe I think so. Maybe I'm not well. It's kind of a famous story. Now that basically the agency that was representing you said Madman what. We're not WANNA representative. You're doing that. Show what is it? Amc Show AMC did not have a show. There was no breaking bad at that point there was. There is nothing and we were show. They used to play old movies So they were like this. This show's not going to get picked up. And this shows not gonNA pay anything and it's period show. It's going to be super expensive to make no one's GonNa WanNa make the show it's laborious and you know wordy and And I was like all my favorite. I love laborious because it was it was about characters. And so yeah. That's scary as an actor. Though to have an agency say okay. Go and do it. But we don't want to represent you. It was humiliating. It was awful. It's very embarrassing to be working with people who all of a sudden go. Yeah we're just not interest like we don't think what you're doing is good enough to represent you. You're not worth their time. It's it's awful. They should be embarrassed. Well you know I hope they were and I hope you haven't spoken to and I you know I just haven't seen her because she's no longer an agent but I liked her as a person and I have no hard feelings. There's all sorts of stories in this town. You know what I got to work on that show for ten years and I made the right choice. That's it that's I got another agent. You just go and get another one there. It is people out there who are wondering what you do. Just go get you know you can get another age. Yeah well you good girls to do that. But I'm looking at you and I'm thinking where did the start last time you were here? I don't think I ever asked what it was when you were a kid because I know that you lived in different places when you were growing up. Yeah did you always have this feeling? This was what you wanted to do was at well I started. Dancing was started dancing at a young age. I clearly liked to perform and when we moved twin falls Idaho. I was in third grade and my mom had my brother and I dish for a local community theater. Children's group called jump company junior musical playhouse and she just thought it was. She was just trying to help us make friends 'cause moving from town to town and she she didn't want us to necessarily get stuck in the cliques. At school she she liked the idea of it being community and my mom always liked to do theatre in college and high school so We went and auditioned to be in the best Christmas pageant ever and You know then all of a sudden I was on stage in musicals and doing bye bye Birdie and the chorus in the background and I was like this is. This is where it's at this. This is the most fun I'm ever going to have and I just continued to do it and I just found so much joy and at and singing and dancing and doing the whole thing that I just kept kept going but when you moved again you will go into Virginia to and we went to Virginia after Idaho so when I went to Virginia was the first time that I could take Acting classes in high school as a option. You know as an elective course so my brother. Yeah my brother had been in theater or drama class and so I was so excited because now I was like I can like start to really study. Be Real actress and And I went in and I remember some of the senior students. I was a freshman and they were like. Oh you're really serious about acting and I was like. Oh yeah definitely when I you know and I got a lead in in the in the school play and I was the new kid and I was a freshman and everyone was like ooh fresh. Br One I think it was a blithe spirit. Oh Yeah Ghost. A ghost ghost perfect thing. I had read that. You were bullied at the time when you were going to school in Virginia. Yeah when I first showed up. I was kind of Quirky Weird kid from Idaho that like listen to like new wave music but wore birkenstocks. And like like I. I just like no one could figure out what my story was and I I just. There weren't sort of categories of people where where I went to school in Idaho. You were a kid and I just happened to have like sort of my mom would help me make clothes and I would see something a magazine and we would make some weird snakeskin pants and I just I didn't realize it was sort of odd Until I got to Virginia and everyone was like. Oh you're weird. Trust me here weird and I was like maybe I am and and I immediately went into drama class. Which of course alienates you in some high schools already. Sadly put you with other alienated. And they're the best big creative Weirdos together with the rest of them yes so you know as the years went by then I sort of went through my sort of rock and roll punk goth all that stuff and and just celebrated being different. Didn't they're still? I'm still one hundred percents. People are like. Oh it's so funny that you were. I'm like I am still God. I don't let this Rambo sweater fairly lax eye. Shadow is a black lipstick. Saying yes I will do that. Let's have her. That Goth is bring her temper. Gabby Gabi really. She's the she's in there. You go just vocally in there to do that.

T. high value target number one is Osama bin laden so it doesn't matter who we elect everybody out there in the seventeen intelligence agencies that use of special operations command in in Florida at Fort Bragg they are looking for that guy so that that's the machine is going to keep on the humming and humming and then they get the Intel that he's in Pakistan that he's a mile and a half from the equipment of their west point and the key thing is you've got to read who is that it's the Robert gates is memoirs former CIA director who was defense secretary for bomber this is an incredible moment before that decision is taken. there's a meeting in the situation room with Obama. and they they've they've they've got the ID confirmed that that this is bin laden he's in this walled compound in about about and instead of deciding what to do does Donald Trump poll Reagan or even bush would have done I the bush do you know what Obama did. he took a vote. he actually lost his cabinet members do you think we should. kill bin laden I I mean just it tells you everything you need to know about this man that we write that the man who's responsible for nine eleven the man is responsible for thousands being killed across the globe and he doesn't have the the where with all to make a command decision and he says let's sleep on it but we'll take we'll take a vote and let's sleep on it so that the the jungle was gonna take the man down and Obama couldn't get in the way but even even at the last moment he said hello like some. child in some. club in high school says let's take a vote on it Vance who Obama was but it's a great question thank you so much for waiting love love the core let's go to let's is it does not show up in New York lying to don't match up our doctor doctors don across.

"Live way below your means is a very important point for most people's financial plan that want to become successful. And the other one is, is that even galaxy won't lead, you anywhere, but to a poverty mentality and that if you do that your entire life, even though you end up with more money in your Bank than someone who, doesn't you're gonna live like you're impoverished the rest of your life. When you get to be a senior. You're still going to be living beans and rice, you still going to be driving a broken down car. You're still going to be going to lunch at four o'clock and get a senior discount, you're still going to be clipping coupons and, you know, it doesn't matter that you save more money than the guy next to you to life. It's still as mediocrity is mediocre sorry as mediocre as the guy who didn't save money. You're live in the same way to guy is living. In other words, he's living it because he has to because he spent all the money you're living it. Because you've trained yourself to live it that way. And so life never really gets any better, even when you start to transition into someone that has a moderate amount of wealth, and then into a large amount of wealth later on down the line. You just can't make that transition, mentally you become old and conservative and frugal to the point where there really is no enjoyment in life. And it's funny. That that's out there. And we were shopping Miami. And. My girlfriend's picking really nice clothes. And, you know she picked out a couple of jackets for me that were fancy. And so we're buying stop. And I'm thinking, oh, gosh. I don't really need all that stuff. But I've got the money I could afford to do it really no big deal. It doesn't even scratch the service. And as we're going through that, then I saw this they had to sail and berkinstocks. And I don't know if you know what a birkenstock is. But it said that, that earthy kind of shoe that the hippies war, sometimes it would bottoms. I think they got like leather straps on autumn, and I mean, they are like to me. It very very. I don't know how to say if I said, it's going to be insulting. Somebody wears birkenstocks, but let me put it this way. I thought they were God. I thought that that bad had disappeared and go man who would even by these things anymore. Nobody dresses like a hippie anymore like that. I mean it's such a way to get stuck in the seventies, you get stuck in hippie, ISM right to go around and be earthy and just about the time my brain was saying all that. A young girl, walks in with berkinstocks on takes off and put the new pair on that look exactly the same. But for some reason, she thought that birkenstock look compared to that birkenstock look might meet might mean she needs an upgrade. And I thought to myself there it is people are stuck in poverty, even when they're not impoverished if you grow up in poverty. If you live your middle ages through poverty. You end up in poverty. It's a way of thinking. And now the world sees those ways of thinking in, whatever it is, you can conceive and believe you will achieve so of you believe you'll new way to have money is to struggle into into starve, then that's the only way it will work for you because that's all you'll ever do. You'll be a birkenstock for the rest of your life. On the other hand, if you see the world as plentiful as you see that as you produce the world will commend you. It's a completely different point of view. Now, this always brings me back to a biblical story. Right. The story, the parable about the talents in the bible, and Matthew twenty five dot one fourth. You Matthew twenty five fourteen through thirty and Luke nineteen twelve through twenty eight. There's actually two stories in the bible that almost exactly the same. In both cases, they say, almost exactly the same thing, and they mean exactly the same thing. Now, I'm not gonna read you the bible verse. Because when you read the bible, it's hard to really follow what they say the way they speak about things. It's an older tongue. But I'm going to read you the overview that this guy wrote about this. And then we could come back to it because it's very, very interesting. When we check my time here looking at four minutes or three minutes, or we're going to see if we get through this. It's a simple story that our Lord tells here man who was prepared to leave on a journey entrusts his possessions to his servants. He just shoot distributors welcomes three servants proportion to them on the basis of their ability. Now, I want to stop right there. And let's talk about what, what the bible really talking about on earth. We get paid. According to our ability. Those of you have great ability, get paid a lot of money those you have little abilities life. Don't get paid as much. Are you with me that just the fact of the world? I know the liberal establishing out there. Does you want you to believe that they want you to believe that it's unfair that rich people are rich because they're lucky and poor people poor because they're a minority but. Michael Jordan isn't poor because he's a minority Kevin. Durant isn't poor because he's minority James harden, poor because he's minority. These guys are paid a ton of money because they are counted. And so, when God handed out talent they did something with it. And a talent is a measure wealth in this society, but a talent in the bible, as a measure, well, is no different than a measure of talent that we are all giving. It goes on to say to the first you entrusted by Callans to the second to talents and to the third one talent, the first two servants quickly set to work with last year's jump money. And in this case envision the masters money is God's talent. He gave to you are you a five talent person. Are you a to talent person? Are you one talent person God gave you those talents? Now, go do something with them. So the third count did not invest the masters money at all. He dug a hole in the ground and buried the masters money. In other words, he wasted the talent God gave to him, you could be one of those people out there wasting your talent that God gave you when the master returned the first two eagerly met their master, apparently delighted in the opportunity to multiply their masters money. Both were commended as good and people servants, and both were rewarded with increased responsibilities in the master service, both were invited to share in the master's joy, so the guy with five. Counts comes back and tells the master you gave me five talents, I returned to you ten talents. And the and the master says, you're a good slave. Now, I'm going to bestow upon you much power and much wealth. The second guy who was given to talents. Doubled his talents to foretells and the message at the same thing to him. It didn't mean anything to the master that the one guy had by towns. And this guy only had two he was happy when he gave him too, because that was his level talent. He replicated the result of the guy with five talents..
