"blakely" Discussed on Work Matters With Ken Coleman

"This work matters with bestselling author and syndicated talk. Show host ken. Coleman it's tuesday november. Twenty four all right so Fun thing we were teaching each day this week. I want to teach from the life of a man or woman who's very very successful but all you know about largely is their success and you think at times it. They're so successful. They're so different from us but they're not. They might have more zeros in their bank account than you more. People may know their name but they're not different from you. How female billionaire spanked rejection. Figured out who i'm talking about. I've had the pleasure of interviewing her and her husband. So i know them really great people. Her name is sara blakely one of the first female billionaires certainly the youngest female billionaire in history. She is the founder and ceo of a brand called spanks guys. If you don't know what it is your wife or girlfriend. Does they'll tell you about him and the story goes what you don't know about. Her journey is that she was on a path to become a lawyer but she scored low on the l. sat which is the law school entrance exam scored low and as a result felt like. This isn't my jam. Now listen to a couple of parts of the story. This is one she realizes. I'm never good at this. I'm not going to be my head up against the wall to try to get a status job and a status career that everybody will think is impressive. I'm i'm gonna go different direction. Great choice she then moves on as she's beginning to wander a bit goes through several dead end several failures. She finally gets a job as a sales person and she was wearing hose. Well the stories really awesome but she realized one day that she had an outfit on that. She felt like she needed some more support. Ladies underneath the old pantsuit and so because she'd been wearing hose she realized could cut off the bottom of the hose and where it underneath the pants. And it'll give me that little extra support that i want and it worked and became an idea. She was like this is an idea. But some of your going well. That's brilliant brilliant. Nobody else thought it was brilliant but her start telling me about it some other people some other ladies and they're like this is brilliant so what she do. She drives to north carolina. Where a lot of the hosiery mills are in the united states and she starts going around knocking on doors if you will. And these manufacturing places and she's pitching her idea. She was turned away by everybody. Everybody was like you've gotta be kidding. Me more rejection. Two weeks later she gets a call from one of the male mill operators. Who took the idea back to his daughters. And they're like dad that's brilliant so he listens to his daughter's call sara blakely says let's talk. She went through several different iterations and a lot of failure. Just trying she just got one due to go all right. I'll produce what you bring to me. But then she had to actually produce it with him and worked through it and test it so much failure in that process for her. She never went to business. School never took a business class. She just figured out that there was a problem that she had. She came up with a homespun personal solution to it and thought bet. There's a better way to do this to solve a problem that i had for a lot of other women now. She's a billionaire. But here's what i want you to hear. She's only a billionaire because she. I decided to take her idea to somebody. She had the guts to just drive to north carolina. No appointments and start knocking on doors. Then she had the guts to not quit and keep going keep staying with it in that two week period. She didn't shut the idea down. She didn't say nope that's it. She could have when that mill operator calls today. My daughter's thinks this is a great idea. I'm willing to help you create this. She could've said you know it's a stupid idea. Thanks for calling. I'm going to do something else she didn't and i don't have time to break down the story of how she eventually got it into neiman. Marcus and some of the crazy gutsy things she did. She put herself out there to be rejected. She faced rejection then. She had to go to all these department stores and she kept getting rejected. They're finally got neiman marcus to do it but she had to put herself way out on the end of the diving board. Some of you aren't doing what you know you're supposed to do simply because you don't want to face the sting of rejection and i got news for you. Sara blakely had to eat rejection morning noon and night didn't put catch up on it. Whatever she had to put on it she had to keep eating it. Because there was no way to success without rejection. Don't think for one second your idea. Your dream is a complete moonshot. And that you're gonna need a miracle to get there. You keep thinking that way you will act that way and you will sit on it until you're dying day but if you refuse to be deterred and discouraged by rejection you'll get there. Don't think you're alone. You the only person with a big idea these men and women that we talk about. They didn't get there because they're better than you. They got there. Because they're more stubborn than you. You need some good old fashioned stubbornness. I will not quit. That's where success begins. We don't even see it but it is the seed of success when we say i believe it must be done and i'm supposed to do it and no matter what anybody says. I am going to try it and i'm gonna learn from that. I will let my effort determined my direction. I will let my effort determine my investment. Not what other people think and not what other people say which by the way when we're worried about what other people think and say i got news for you. That's all in your head. They got their own issues. You think they're walking around thinking about how. How the. Ken coleman show is going to succeed or fail. You've lost your ever loving mind. They don't care they get their own stuff. Stop worrying about what everybody else thinks. And says what do you believe. What do you say. I would tell you that in my life and probably in your life the number one voice you have to be careful of is your own voice because this the one you hear the most if you like what you're hearing make sure to subscribe and share work matters with a friend for help on your career journey.

Creativity as a Mechanism to Win

"Creativity as a mechanism to win. What yes that's what. I'm talking about right now. I have been just in love with my own process lately and it involves a mindset as well as a time management hack and one. I'm talking about is i work on my money making projects as my core focus of my day. That has not changed. But what has changed. Is you know grinding. It out for four years plus on doing own gig. Sometimes i get stuck or frustrated or like burnt out for lack of a better word and rather than going. Okay send a day to quit. Seven o'clock tune out. Watch some netflix six. Instead of doing that. I have implemented something else which is far more satisfying and it is. I have a set of creative projects that i'm doing and allotting time for for myself and if i do it right i can also learn. New skill sets while satisfying the creative side of my soul. So it has professional benefits as well as sole benefits as well as productivity benefits like. It's just a whoop. It's an alignment so let me explain the for myself. It might be different for you but for me. One of One project. I can think of as i wanted to learn some harmonies and lay them down on audio software. Just for fun. Because i love harmonizing and with the pandemic it's hard to get together in person and harmonize with people So i just was like well elite. How my own tracks harmonized with myself. Because it's so enjoyable. And i did that. So he became more familiar with Recording software and how to to do what i needed to do with multiple tracks et cetera. So that was a skill that i'm building and singing is obviously the harmonizing is really enjoyable So that satisfies decreed site. And then i was like well. I want to be able to quickly make any audio files. That i produce into videos so i was like all right. Quick hack and learn that real quick check and then just keep going so. That's one and then another one i have is. Oh then. this is totally frivolous inhale. Larry is and that's why i love it. L. being in my creative project rotation is that i've set up in my library. A mike stand and on it is god a microphone. Obviously and then an audio processor with the gain and everything and i plug it right into my phone. Start taking video and my dream for the for. The project is to have gene. Eat some healthy snacks and do like little. Asmar videos because it's so funny. Like i would love for him to be tic tac famous. And i don't even know dog. Asmar is something people like because it might be actually disgusting. Like i don't care. So i'm not really looking at it as like oh i'm gonna make my career out of making dog. Asmar no it's more just hilarious to me the thought of it as genre but then it also gives me more experience with equipment and working with my dog in creating content from a totally different angle and also video editing and tiktok. It's fun So those are just some examples for me. So it's it's kind of amazing you can just be working on your money making projects and then if you get stuck or you get tired Rather than just being like. I'm done for the day. That's it you just switch gears and you activate the creative part of your brain and if you do it right you can also pick up new skills on the side just for fun teaching yourself a whole manner of things and this is in addition to taking master classes or learning from your favorite business. People like i love. Jay abraham so much and radio and sara blakely and barbara corcoran and mark cuban. Of course i'm very aligned with him on social justice as well as how he approaches his whole entire career so anyway that is super fun. I wanted to talk to you guys about that. L. creativity is a mechanism win. And when no if you're doing that is well. I know a lot of people like engineering types to have multiple interests. They kinda tend to do this naturally so they just go from thing to think to think especially if they're like adhd so yeah. I've just really taken a lot of joy in this approach because it makes me feel like instead of like i'm not enough. I didn't complete you know solving this problem. That i've wanted to solve for three days. You know instead of feeling like that feeling and going. I gotta call it a night and just go watch some amazon prime. You know some movie instead of doing that. It's like i'm to. I'm a shelf this for now. And i'm going to activate a different part of my brain know because some of us are both analytical and creative

"blakely" Discussed on Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman

"The advantages in fact of taking investment in your company. Each time you pick your company you get valuable feedback even from the nose especially from the notes. Aw Sarah didn't take investment. She started spans with a five thousand dollars. She had the bank. And why would never recommend this route anyone for a whole range of reasons. Etcetera Ron speed support insanity. You have to admire that. She grew up billion dollar company without ever taking outside investment. Her reason she I didn't know as an option. I didn't even know that I could go. Try to raise forty million dollars read. I think I'd be not quite as tired right now. I'm I'm really tired but well. I mean your demonstration of grid is simply awesome. Thank you my advice to each of you. You're you don't have to be quite that tired but you will need unwavering persistence. If a search high and low F- your idea putting yourself in situations where the inspiration is most likely to strike. You have to act on it. Once you find it. Surround yourself with people who can help and seek feedback from those who can help build your idea and you have after persist through the inevitable failures and setbacks and naysayers and when you start to bring that idea into the world don't let massive gaps in your knowledge of how to scale scale your product. Get in the way. What you don't know can actually work to your advantage like to tell people what you don't know can be your greatest asset if you let it if you have the courage you know a lot of a second guess ourselves and I didn't go to school for this or I'm not an expert so we don't ask questions are we? Don't pursue it and after all that you might just reach true goal. Remember how Sarah set our sights on the Oprah show well so I invented this product and I sent a gift basket to oprah of the product addict with the note in it and found out Andre.

"In the world happens you have to be someone who is willing to ask for forgiveness Indus not permission and I still I still live my life that way you know I feel like there were so many fundamental things that happened in the early days where I would just I ask for forgiveness if spanks had not gotten any traction in the first few years do you think you would have persistent persistent kept going. Yes I mean when you said that I was looking at you so confused. I'm like of course it would get traction. Because I was making the traction action I went to every department store in the country that bought spanks to sell it and sold it for them. I stood in the store from eight thirty in the morning until seven at night every day. Selling my own product to ensure was a success and then the other thing I did guy was. I was buying my own product so I was spending being check all of my friends around the country to go by Spank so it was like I was one hundred percent sure it was going to take off great. I mean literally I would call friends and I'd say Hey Sarah can you go into Neiman Marcus in Dallas and look like you love this product product called spanks and buy it and I'll mail you check. I mean you have to and then I would go stand in the department stores and I would be selling the product and I realized that a lot of people just would ignore army so I would ask friends to come over to Neiman's on their lunch break just to stand by my table and look interested because energy begets energy energy so then all of a sudden my friends I q go and they'd be like wow. This looks so interesting and all these shoppers would come over. And I'd have to like push my friends and decide. Be like okay so I mean when you think about the arc of the story right you launch the product and within two years Oprah Oprah is talking about it I mean it sounds like a just a flash like so quickly did it feel like it was fast at the time or did it feel like a sort of a slow burn. The development of the product felt very slow. It took two years and I was working at night and on the weekends but then once I had the product made it. Did I feel like it was very fast. I mean I quit my job on October. Sixteenth and Oprah called me in the beginning of November well and chose spanks thanks is a favourite product of the year. Which of course it blew up? You'd an apartment in Atlanta at the time. I think you were stacked boxes stacked and I did. It was really a wild. The time I was the fulfillment house semi trucks coming to my apartment twice a week with boxes of spanks and I didn't have a website. And you know of course Oprah for shows like you have a website right. That's a requirement to be a favorite thing. I was like. Yes yes I do. I had like six days to build. A website decided knew what I was doing. I didn't know anything actually took a color copy of the packaging. I created on my friend's computer and scanned it and that was the homepage of my website for for a year and a half Sarah as you know. The theme of this conference is kindness and collaboration. We deliberately wanted that to be the theme because it seems seem so on business like and ish we want we. We think that this show people like you the founders we've had on the show really a redefining what it means to run a business and ethical ethical business and a company in Collaborative Company. Can you share just one quick story of kindness and active kinds that you experience when you you know when you were trying to wrap this thing up. I mean there's where do I begin. There's so many acts of kindness. That's the reason that I'm sitting here but when I first started spanks spanks. It was about three months after I started. I was at a cocktail party and three guys came up to me and they said Sarah so we heard you invented something and and I said yes I did. I'm so excited. And one of the guys put his hand on my shoulder and he said Yup great he goes you know businesses war and I just looked at him and the other guy goes yep. I hope you're ready to go to war. Sarah and I went back that night in sat on the floor of my apartment and I think I was in. Hello Kitty Pajama Bottoms and I just staring at the floor and I thought I don't want to go to war like there has to be a better way. There has to be a different way. I've no interest interesting going to war and I made a decision that night that I was going to go about this business in a very different way and use very different principles of in other than going to war and I just WANNA say. I'm very happy that I believe there's a real shift happening now. where the conversations around using kindness and vulnerability empathy and intuition is finding its home inside of business because I truly think it's about the balance? Sara I think a lot of people are surprised when they hear stories of founders who are not naturally charismatic I can think of like Yvonne Shenar or Eileen Fisher Tony Shay. They're more introverted. They have occurred as an inner Christmas Day habit. They're more introverted. And quiet and you come across as very charismatic first of all. Is that something that you just are or is that there's something you learned how to be as you grew into your into your role I feel like this is who I am so I feel like I've I've been this way since I was a little girl. Do you think it's an important quality to have as a founder. I mean clearly not because there's so many founders that aren't more extroverted averted. I think it's really fundamentally comes down to the belief in yourself and the profile of the person. Listen you gotTa hire your weaknesses as soon as you can afford board too. I know what my weaknesses are. And if you're the kind of founder that sales and being out front in front of people and cold cold calling and doing all of that isn't your thing. Then that's a great place for you to invest your money early on as soon as you can afford to. I needed to invest in an operator very clearly. I was not good at that. I did not enjoy the day to day management of the company the inventory the logistics. I mean literally I remember when I first started and I had to be every department I was the head of sales the head marketer the head packer shipper. I was the before and after but model I was literally every the department. Okay and one time. I don't know that I've ever told the story one time in the beginning. When it was all happening I was having to ship Neiman? Marcus orders I got my big break and and the buyers said I'll put them in seven stores and so I was in the aisle office depot looking for a bill of lading and manifests. Okay and all the sudden I sat on the floor of the island started sobbing. I just started crying and this man was looking for like I don't know envelopes. He's he's like are you okay honey. I'm like what's a bill of lading. I don't even know what I'm doing and it was highly overwhelming to me that side of the business. How did uh-huh how did you deal with? Don't really know what a bill of lading. How did you manage your own personal anxiety in in in those early days and even as you begin to grow? Yeah I definitely have a lot of negative self-talk. It's part of my life. Well I think it's a part of everybody's life. I will doubt myself often. I still do and I've also trained myself to identify when it's happening because sometimes we don't even know where saying the stuff we're saying to ourselves and so the identification in the awareness is a big part of it and then I will reframe it. I will just stop it and I have certain things that I'll say to to the voice when it starts happening and I'll redirect. It is remarkable because I think a lot of people in this audience and beyond who know you would think of you as you know the superhero right like that. You would never have self doubt or anxiety but I think it's important to hear that because uh a lot of the founders on our show have talked about that have talked about things like imposter syndrome or about experiencing bouts of self doubt even even now even after they've been wildly successful. I think that's a big part of success. I think it's the people who can manage their own negative self talk doc and their own self doubt that really is a huge component to success mean. There's a quote that says self-doubt will kill more successes. Then failures ever will so. I just happened to be lucky. I was going through a really hard time in my life at the age of sixteen I watched my friend run over by a a car and killed and then my dad left home. My parents got separated and when my dad moved out he handed me these cassette tape from Wayne Dyer and said Sweetie. I wish I was your age when I listened to this instead of the age of forty and then he left and so I started listening to these talked about not caring what other people think about you not fearing fearing failure and I started to cry in my bedroom and I just remember thinking I have just spent sixteen years in school being taught what to think doc but nobody has ever taught me how to think and it was like the lights went off and I went. Oh wait I can control how I think and then I became a student outside of school of that anything I could get my hands on of. How can I train my thinking to process as things in a way that propels me forward rather than holds me back and I got to say in high school? Nobody wanted to be stuck in my car after after a party. They're like don't go in her car. You'RE GONNA make you listen to that motivational stuff. I had it on at all times literally and then and then I ended up on the cover a Forbes like ten or fifteen years later and all my friends from clearwater high texted me and they were like damn should've listened to that Sara Blakely founder of spanks. Sarah me live on stage at the two thousand nineteen how I built this summit which happened in October at Yearbook Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

Sara Blakely of Spanx: Ideas are Most Vulnerable When They're Brand New

"Today. They of course. Thanks is an international brand and Sarah is a billionaire and you'll discover here is that she's also super open about the strategies. Used to stay stay confident and optimistic. When she was just getting started? I WANNA go back to one thousand nine hundred eight when I experimented when you cut the feet the legs of pantyhose any hose and began to design. What would become eventually spanks pockets? You said something to me that I've I've never forgotten and I'm going to quote here. You said ideas Are At their most vulnerable. When their brand new yes in other words that's when people say oh it's GonNa work socks is stupid? Forget it so great. Why didn't other people do it? You decided not to pretty much not to tell anybody to keep it a secret and it was for that reason because you knew that you would be discouraged. Yes now I shared my idea with people who could help me move it. Forward like a patent attorney the people in the manufacturing plants but I decided. I wasn't going to tell anybody just to say. Hey what do you think of this for awhile. Ideas are the most vulnerable in their infancy and we all have amazing ideas. I'm a believer. That everybody in their lifetime has has at least one million dollar idea maybe even a billion dollar idea but as our inclination as humans to immediately turn to our right or left and say to our friend or coworker husband and wife and say hey I have this idea what do you think and out of love and concern. They'll say well you know if it's such a great idea. Why isn't anybody done on it or things like that and then you end up spending all of your time defending it and explaining it rather than pursuing it? And so I pursued the I dea spanks for one year before I told anybody. I sat my family down. I said guys you ready. All they knew was Sara's working on some crazy idea they they didn't know what it was and I sat down and I said Okay Ready. It's footloose pantyhose right. You can imagine the response and they were like what what. And then I got all the out of total love. If it's such a good idea Sara why does it already exist and honey even if this is a a good idea you're going to spend your five thousand dollars in savings and within six months the big guys could just knock you right out of the water and I think I really believe that had I heard with that in the minute that I had the idea and cut the feet out of my pantyhose. I really think I would not have started spanks. You think if you would've told people or your family and friends or the people who sort of judgment you know could have affected. You would have given up or I just would have been easily. Let that one fly fly right out the window and just been like. Yeah okay. Maybe you're right but I also I had set intention for an idea two years before this and that also helped me so I sold fax machines door to door for seven years and I was always kicked out of buildings. PEOPLE WOULD RIP UP MY BUSINESS CARD in my face all the time and one day I had had such a particularly bad day I pulled off the side of the road and that's when I thought I'm in the wrong movie like call the director or call the producer. Call the writer later. This is not my life and I wrote down what I was good at in my apartment. I'm like what are you good at Erin in my good column was sales and I started asking myself. What is it about sales that I liked? Mike and I realized I really liked selling somebody something that they needed or would improve their live and I wrote down. I'm going to invent something that I can sell to millions of people that that will make them feel good and then I looked up and I said I need the idea and so two years later when I cut the feet out of my pantyhose to go to a party I had never worked in fashion or retail but I cut the feet out and I solved this undergarment issue kind of because they rolled up my legs all night but but I you know I looked smooth. I had no lines and I thought this should exist for women but because I had said that intention and been so clear what the universe two years prior and said please give me the idea. I believe ideas are gifts from the universe and I think they're very precious and I think the minute we get them. We should write them down. Instantly I think carrying the same style notebook with me for twenty years and now mostly used my phone but I keep a log of every thought an idea that I think could potentially be something thing you know. I think about your story a lot because in those early days where you're going door to door selling fax machines getting doors slammed in your face at wonder group that built resiliency. Did you have to be exposed to that kind of rejection. In order to be able to start this company one hundred percent. I believe that cold calling rolling is one of life's greatest trainings. I had to learn how to be quick on my feet. I had to learn how to win somebody over quickly I had to learn to get to the heart the matter in a sales scenario very quickly which is when I learned. What's in it for them and get to the point very quickly and don't sell the product? Sell the problem you're solving. I learned all this through massive mega trial and error and door after door. Slamming in my face and that helped me so much respect because for the first two years I was working on spanks spanks at night and on the weekends while I was still selling fax machines by day and that I got told no for those basically no which I just want to point out if you invent something or if you're an innovator it means you're doing something that's different than how everybody else is doing it. You're going to hear the word now. That's cool if I mean if you say you had told people about this idea people who loved and cared about you maybe some with them would've said Hey. Why don't you go work for Fashion Company for a couple of years and get experience in the industry and learn about it and learn the INS and outs and then you know you? You'll know what to do. You'll have connections and so on breath wonder if you in some ways you had a sort of an intuitive advantage given that you you told me on the show. Oh you didn't know anything about the industry right. I mean that's really logical advice. Get right especially as a parent to a child like go get experience before you go. I do this. So there's a very high likelihood I would have heard that right away and you know one of the things. My life was so bad when I was selling fax machines door to door and I had this conversation one time with my dad and he said honey you live in Atlanta now go get a job at CNN. or go work at coke and this voice inside of me said but then I might be content. And and I thought I need to be miserable right now like I need to stay miserable because if I stay in rock bottom and I'm this unhappy. I'm going to ensure that I am willing to take some sort of a leap that terrifies me but I mean even early on. You didn't ask for permission. I mean didn't ask for permission when you went to Neiman and Marcus I mean your products display in the back of the hosiery section syrup tissue next to the cash register so people would notice them. And you didn't ask for permission and you almost like you were fearless you. Wouldn't you weren't worried about the consequences of doing those kinds of things. Yeah I'm definitely not fearless. I'm courageous -rageous and there's a big difference. I'm afraid of so many things like those days that I moved the stand when no one gave me permission to I was shaking but I believe the differences that courage is doing things despite fear and we build our courage muscle by continuing to just face it and do it but I was terrified. Fight during all of those steps I will say that.

The 3-Step Process That Leads to Business Success

"Our first guest today is the CEO of creative center of America. She's a Forbes coaches council coach who works with business. Leaders emerging experts nonprofit professionals and creative talents who are building their brand and Robin Blakely. Welcome back. Hey, thank you for having me, Frankie, still you have a different philosophy. You know, when we when we hear about business we hear about. The conversations are not really filled with any kind of fun or humor. They just aren't campaign. That's true. Yes. Ambi through but you're putting fun back into business. How are you doing that? Well, one of the things that we really think fun is a is a foundation for creative thinking, so we are wanting to look at things in a different manner. We use a lot of toys and games in our you know, to to illustrate concepts, and and it just lighten the mood. It gets people thinking and looking at things differently when you're having fun. And if it's directed fund, it's a certain kind of fun that we like to focus people toward, but when they're having fun. There's this opportunity for creative thinking to happen. And when you have great if thinking it leads to innovation and that leads to you know, success. So you say that fun can ignite a three step process that leads to business success. What are the steps because every time I've ever had a conversation with with people about. Outings? And I did a couple of painting parties for a few years. I did those painting parties and. I remember we did a couple of corporate events. And it was the most amazing thing to see people get out of their their shells and paint and let loose and have fun and the connection and the the the. So exciting to see the admirations. They had preach other. It was so in the low laughter. It did never stopped laughing. That that's well that that part is really relational and such a connection between people when they can, you know, kind of get away from the stuffy atmosphere, and and kind of get to know each other on a human level. But one of the things that we're thinking about when you're on your talking about this three step process. You know when and having fun be part of it. Big success is usually tracked down to an awful moment. When you when that moment when you thought of something big or he thought of something new or there was something different or innovative about an approach. And so what we're wanting to think about is how to focus on that. How do we make it possible for that big aha moment to happen? And we know that it's possible when there's a certain kind of fun there. You know, when we set the stage for creative thinking when when when it's like a like when you open the box, and you're gonna play monopoly or your opening the box in playing the game of life. We want to open that box. And and help guide you toward a particular kind of thinking. So we want it to be fun. We want to have the creative thinking guided we want to open that door to innovation. And that's where everything goes, you know, where those all home moments happen. You know, when that innovations directed business success will happen until it's fun. And then create a thought then innovation, and that's where the business successes is

"The panthers announced that they were doing an investigation not the nfl which i think is important then it's wishes at the nfl's like actually we're gonna take over this then jerry richardson said i'm going to sell the team okay so i think there is the means of questions okay well where does the nfl investigation lie pro football talk tweeted should we even do the investigation which is insane to me for a number of reasons one of which is just because you're a richardson says is going to sell the and the team doesn't mean he's actually going to do it in a few months and we have no idea what scope of the allegations are do they extend to other members of the panthers organization is colleagues you know there's just a lot of open questions demining their agra agra investigators and obviously should continue to go on but uh i think that bears short of uh and jerry richardson writing a letter detailing honestly all the things that he did like him uh opting to volunteering to sell the team almost immediately after this comes out like seems like a pretty clear admission that there was some pretty uncomfortable things going on that he doesn't want to get out and i think you're right even if it's even if everyone they overhauled the whole organization i think just for a societal sake like the important to study these things and to investigate these things tho the facts come out so that other organisations that are have employees behaving in the same way can understand that this is wrong this is unacceptable so i'll the no matter what jerry richardson does what the team there's no reason not to gulf war with the with the investigation but i did find one of the things that you left off in the chain of events is that they promoted tina becker loses coo which i mean i think it's a good thing that they promoted a woman to that role but it just feels like sowing like yeah pandiri and lame legacy will not bad bad and it it makes are one of the highest ranking women in professional football and probably professional sports as a whole but certainly professional football so it's it's good i guess that's the best thing you can do is put another kind of elderly white man in there than people.

"Injured but that combination of running backs is obviously extremely effective it's just i don't know man they they've gotten so lucky you know in a n e the they make so many selfinflicted errors that jump out when you watch games i suppose maybe that's part of the reason um i don't know i guess the defense of gunboat better has gone better i can't i of the team of the bucks team and i don't really think that's fair because roadblocks are very good um grady jarrett's been great cano neil has been a lot better in the blind but he quarries improved but i look at these other two teams in new orleans and carolina in the just so clearly don't staccato against them is that it is it more that they don't stack up against these teams that your mind and less that you because it doesn't seem that you can point to something all the team that you know is actually deficient is this more like a feel thing so you just don't believe in them relative to some of the other nfc powers they're just lightly worse in every phase right i mean quarterback running back offensive lines in pretty good actually defense randy fence pass defense eighty they're like average i think in rushing the passer they're just kind of an average like it's lately above average team but in that division i don't think that is good enough their quarterback was the mvp last year like how can you i mean honestly done bpd right now.
