Trump 'Itching' to Get Back on Campaign Trail
"Daniel Lippman, White House reporter at Politico and author of Politicos Great Weekend reads column to offer some thoughts about the president now after his return to the White House. And of course, the president has been seen not worrying a mask on his return to the White House. He did mask to take a a brief trip outside Walter Reed Hospital. Two way but his supporters, both of which have gotten him a considerably more grief from those inclined to do so, Daniel. Sometimes it almost seems to be like the president seeks out ways in which he can receive grief for people. Yeah, That's one way to put it. Hey, is very good at Felicity. Negative reaction from His detractors. And so it seems like every day comes up with new ways ahead, which is just so amazing. But, you know, I think he wants to project strength he wants to say he used in the final stages of beating this virus. But what he doesn't realize are you not acknowledging that he's getting the best medical care? He has a huge team of doctors, nurses the best in the world world class. Medicines and trials He's on on. Most Americans are not president, and they don't have access to all of them on stuff to make their illness better, and number seven million Americans have gone coronavirus 210,000 people have died. I am wondering about his actual status. There's some mixed signals on that. We were told in the beginning everything was fine than the White House chief of staff offered thoughts that the president was in fact, in a bit of distress for awhile, then we're told the president was very angry at At that view being expressed that he has, of course since then tried to exhibit Ah ah! Ah, A man who is ah, on top of it, if you will, although I'm not sure in the case of the Corona virus when when symptoms can vary so much from severe all the way down to asymptomatic. Do we really have a handle? On just how the president is doing. Hey, seems to be doing better. But Aah! If you watched the video of him on the Truman balcony, he was gasping for air a little bit, and so Chalk it up to the trip or what? Not, but still on that, you know, leaving the Drudge report, you know, read by millions of conservative in the girls tonight on, you know, there's the family's kind of divided in that. Don Jr and the kids. They were little. Some of the kids were little apprehensive. At what You know how trump kind of operated in terms of how you want to get out of the hospital. He wanted to do that. Ah, joyride last night that exposed on those agents. Oh, And so that is a really concern in kind of trump world that ah, whether he has learned the right lessons from this pandemic, or is he going to continue to Kind of ignore mainstream doctor's advice. Right. And what does that mean for her kind of the future of the Corona virus outbreak in America when they can't even keep the president safe? Well now You know the rest. American allies under all is well all is under control. Looking at the campaign now, with four weeks and a day as we speak left Until we actually arrive at election night, although many ballots who have already been cast Uh, do we have any indication at all of how this is all playing? Is there Ah, a sympathy vote for the president. Are there those who consider his behavior to be reckless, which presumably would be against the president? Do we know how this is playing politically? Um, yeah. So we don't know exactly. How every has returned to the White House is plain. But there is AH, you know, senior citizens. He is not doing that well in among them because They have been the worst affected by the pandemic. Ah, and they kind of look at his behavior and they think it's been reckless, irresponsible, having huge rallies. Not social distancing of 30 people so far, who have gotten Dick. These tested positive for the Corona virus that have interacted with Trump in last week on so we can have so that is causing really concern among Republicans say that You know, they feel like the That they've kind of already lost on that the next month. It's only gonna kind of feel the deal. They are very pessimistic about having about how to turn around. The campaign on DH. They see, Trump has not even able to go on the campaign trail that that's just what do we know about whether or not the president is in fact going to resume campaigning? What do we know about the fate of the final two presidential debates after the Wednesday night vice presidential debate? So it is a bit Unclear when he'll return because it just depends on the health. And that's TBD. Uh, day by day process. He hasn't hit the 78 Day seven or eight. During his illness, those air in the critical days. That could go Either way, Khun Go turns severe, uh, you know, go back to the road to recovery or continue on that road in that, you know, that's Wednesday or Thursday. And Thursday and so Be, uh, you know, there is a kind of a feeling that There's mixed messages out of the White House. The lack of good staffers. You have a staff doctor. They are. They don't have tons of credibility, so that makes it harder for her. Them two for Americans to believe what they're saying, and that hurt the campaign as well. And so trump where she wants to go back to those rallies. Get that adulation, but He's having to put that on all because Doesn't want to, you know, exposed, you know lots of people, and I don't think Americans would want to go to those rather in the first place. How has this affected the Biden Harris campaign? Well, they're of course, they say the right things about praying for the president's health coming back. But They are, you know, and they're actually happy, too. Give it to a more positive message. Everyone's who were on the road. They're not stuck in a basement anymore. And so that makes it easier for them too. Kind of point to that there the party of normalcy that I want to, you know, really put America safely. Um, And so, while the trump campaign kind of fuzzy avert their virtual events Other things like that. So buying campaign feels like they're way out in the polls. 14 points. NATIONAL Horton NBC News Wall Street Journal, Um, left It leaves in other states that are in other polls. And so they found a much stronger position than Hillary Clinton was. Much more widely despised of the campaign, then

"It, Jim Bohannon show Welcome back to Jimbo had a chilled 186 expire. Bo Jimbo 1866505 or 6 to 6, this time around the two houses of Congress since the American public in its wisdom chose to vote, the straight paralysis ticket. And put the Republicans in charge of the Senate of the Democrats in charge of the house and all of you who have voted that way. You've got no basis for whining. You created the problem. You can't make up your mind. You're part of the problem. But be that as it may, the president has now acted as we take some calls. We'll let me before we get into the details of everything that he's done or tried to do. Let's say you were the president and you had the inherent limitations of executive orders. What would you have done differently than what he did. Granted, it probably is inadequate and not what Congress could have and should have done But But, ah, the any act as well as he could have I here. Here's what surprises me. I did not see the president, um the other way he could have played it. Look in hindsight. If this breaks the law, Jim, it will look like a brilliant bit of political move. Brilliant statesmanship, but the other way I think he could have played it in earlier would have been to step up. And lean on, not the Democrats so much bling on the Republicans. And with that kind of pressure. I think there might have been a breakthrough earlier before the positions were so hardened. I mean, the Congress came back. I'm turning. It was July 20th. From its first summer. You know, Recent Remember, kindergartners and Congress are the only people that get recess anymore, But they came back July 20th. And they knew that on August 1st July 30th the stimulus the extended federal unemployment benefits I should say would end. So that was 10 days Now we're 10 days, father along I think the statesmanlike thing for any president who have done would have been to lean on his own party a little bit and become more actively involved in coming to some kind of compromise. So, but this was the way It's been played. Let me just make three quick points here. First of all the unemployment they were going to compromise on $400 anyway, the president decided to use Hurricane disaster relief fund and the way that disaster relief fund work legally is that the government commits a portion and the states must commit a portion, which is why you heard him say. I'm gonna give you $400 will actually 300 the States will have to chip in with 100. And then everybody said that the state don't really have enough money to do that. I mean, part of this whole thing was originally according to the Democrats give money to the states, So that was their position. So the president and tried to walk that back and say, Well, they could apply, and maybe we'll give him all $400 legally. He can't do that. If he's using the disaster relief fund, he can't create funds only Congress can, but he can appropriate that disaster relief fund but only on a shared basis. That's number one. Distant long moratorium. He was well within his rights to extend and for millions of Americans. Same. I've always said that the government is now borrowing for 10 years and 1/2 of 1% that millions of people, every paying student loans that rates of eight and nine and 10%. That's another story cycle We already talked about. It's telling people who already have jobs that they're going to get a tax break. Number one and number two. It does impact Social Security. And then this whole discussion. There wasn't a moratorium on evictions. From federally financed property that expired at the end of July. Also, and the president made it look like in what he said. And I had to look into this that there was going to be a continued moratorium on evictions and foreclosures. But in fact, he just said, I'm going to talk to my housing people and make sure that they do something about these evictions and foreclosures, so it didn't get everybody wound up. It's going to get all our callers wound up is not about whether he was right or wrong. He there's some stuff. Maybe he can do legally. I don't want to challenge that in court. That's not where our attention should be focused. It should be focused on not only the things he did, but all the things that were left undone. Stimulus payments shouldn't be again should be for the same people, more people, fewer people the same amount of money. That's a week that Congress to be doing and programs for businesses. Do we want to rescue the airlines? That's a legitimate will know that simile areas that that you could look at some of the previous things that they have. The Democrats have put into this catch All Santa Claus package..

Y. our young while you Angie dot com he is the founder and president of king operating corporation they look for petroleum in the ground and I'm curious as to what's going to happen the gasoline prices let's say all well let's look ahead through let's say up to Labor Day the labor day okay well I will tell you right now I I don't see much movement until the end of the year and I but I know you asked some of its okay if if I think too short a period of time just give me your estimate on whatever time frame works for you twelve okay in the reason why is because there is three hundred less rigs drilling for oil and gas in the United States today normally there's eleven hundred almost twelve hundred rigs that work and drill for oil and gas and they produce a tremendous amount of oil that may produce twenty five to thirty five thousand barrels of oil the first month and now there's three hundred less rings them a run in one a year ago so what you're gonna see is when the scroll bars comes out and everything's gonna settle down which you will and you have a lot less all of the market what's going to happen is you're going to see prices starting to increase labor data into this year I can see seventy five dollars a barrel easy it is not within the distance from the Middle East or anything but just because of that because of the lack of supply on the market our demand stays strong our demand is strong with this corona viruses coming down we'll come back well now does come back yeah yes you are as well as a win win win we we think of the summertime we think of more driving and therefore gas prices go up is that still a safe rule of thumb it is very broad form the right now you're seeing a lot of the demand global demand coming down because of the the crown of bars and things so I don't know if it catches up by that term it could go up by the summertime but if it is it may stabilise go up a little bit but not until the end of this year we see a big a big job all right now one eight six six five oh Jimbo is our number one eight six six Bible five four six two six so I'm curious about the job the impact of of what you do from from shale oil collection the like getting well and obviously to help the country in terms of energy dependence but I'm wondering do you do that and if it if you don't how has that impacted you well I'll tell you that we have are we going to different prospects in their both jail they're both unconventional is most shale breaking the old mark the prospect we have right now it has a conventional and unconventional to it which means basically that you don't need to be doing the big fracking which pricing just because money drawing of ten thousand foot lateral just think of that per se yeah Jim here if you're two miles from start to finish under the ground and your fracking every two hundred feet of fracking or are you are you setting off an explosion that fractures the the rock I'm not too sure would we we toss around the term fracking very glibly especially for talk show host but that doesn't mean we we know what what is actually going on read ME slated the real simple terms so what we do is we put withdrawal well first with the drill bit we may go out to two miles whatever whatever the the prospect calls for let's say two miles long with a drill bit will bring that drill bit out of the ground it will put hi there hi booze is still in the ground okay it's five and a half inch pipe and it's all the way for two miles and then what you do is you go down and you'll perforate this end bracket in stages what that means is you'll put a perforation going down the hole and you'll go all the way out your two miles to the very end annual perforate the pot then you'll put the shots in the pipe safely say shots in the pipe but I don't know what that means it's a small explosion is putting a perforation in that part okay guys raise your your your perforating that pipe was eight shots per foot for two hundred feet so you're you're perforating the pipe for two hundred feet and then what you do is you take water just water and you throw it down though well bore and you'll put it down so fast the little break open the formation there was what I mean by that is is breaking open the form like a baseball bat on the windshield or like like concrete because it is hard is hard rock it is not going to produce a list is broken up and so when you frag what you're doing is you're sending water is you know a hundred miles an hour down the well bore and you're breaking up with that formation that makes sense killing of spider web no no he does again again as I say to me it was just two syllables fracking allegedly tell me a lot but now I know I have a better understanding of it yeah in this union minister to order three yeah and then you'll you'll want to water down your struggle two hundred free and then you'll put a plug their Nicolas sandy and afterwards you put a lot of say in the end because what you want to do is have the essay and open up the pores and straight thank you the pores open and then you put a status is more so the rocker we talking about boards of the pipe wars in Iraq boys on the rock okay yeah because you want it you want to keep it uses this car uses a profit if you will okay now we're coming up on a breaker that doesn't move so we're gonna go back and pick up the the tale of how fracking is accomplished in some of the other questions that come from that with J. R. young back in a moment loading up on things from Walmart yeah I use my new Capital One Walmart rewards card it is unlimited five percent back on everything I buy from Walmart online see what's five percent back five percent what.
"bohannon" Discussed on The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey
"Setting New Vision in New Forces because you know I've got that muscle memory but it's like is still a human and the idea of failing embarrassing myself for like putting myself in a position of need or risk is still actually really. Siri to me I just got a little bit jaded because not jaded. I'm a little bit biased. Because I just got home from To Gonda where eight fourteen of our top sellers so our products are sold through. Saco fellows so these are women in their community. They are selling the product. They're styling their friends. They're earning income Off of the products that they're selling so were were building. This amazing team in Uganda. Were also building this incredible team in the United States of of women who are coming together and getting to see my two teams together. Getting to see my Uganda production. Getting to see my sales team and seeing the relationship in the joy in the connection I've just like totally on fire on fire for Frankly right now. We're in a place. Where are are you gonNA team is just freaking rocket? Like they're our executive team over there. They just run the show. They know what's up and they're really putting out the challenge to ask are we. Did our part. We build a best in class manufacturing company. We handle a lot. What do you got for really issuing the challenge here on the US side of things to kick it up into grow the fellows program and to continue to welcome new women into our community over on this side? And so I would say when I think about the next ten years. We HAVE OUR FOUNDING FELLOWS WALL IN UGANDA IN. It has the list of the first five hundred fellows that ever joined us and it's cool just as a beautiful visual dislike global team that we're creating and at the idea of getting to grow that community so that we can grow the opportunity now not just in Uganda. We work in Uganda ups Peru India so really seeing the global impact that we as a community are able to have a have me on all sorts of fire and then I think you really with the book. The process of the book was like how I know. I have this thing through. Seko that I'm like. Hey you wanna make an impact in the world. But you're not quite sure how just come along and we'll we'll give you every step for how to find community Beautiful in act so I have that in then I also recognize that. There's everybody and I don't care if you're a stay at home mom if your doctor your graphic designer like I truly believe that each and every one of us were created on purpose in four purpose in helping to teach in walk alongside encourage people in Hannah tap into that Is Is it a real passion of mine? It has developed really over the last few years I think is going to be one of the guiding actions of my next ten years of like okay. I have this journey. I learned so much a lot of what beginners clock is about is this. I think a lot of the messages that we're getting in our current culture about finding your passion and draining big are actually Rina's in their creating offensive in society in this analysis paralysis and so I just feel so passionate in on fire about helping demystified for people and encourage encouraging equipping them to go out and build their own lives of purpose impassioned impact. Well I am on that train with you so I am so excited for all. The things you are doing isn't really fun for me to follow these last couple of years and see SACO grow in your book expanded reach so many people. I love what you guys are doing. I love everything you guys are creating the mission you have in so it's finally look back Thinking about the days of living in the car rushing McDonald's now I will say getting the first breakfast sandwich off the line. They're pretty good. I'm being honest works to that. You see that this is totally random. I did you see that they have McDonald's scandal. No I should send you there. It is Liz. Thank you so much for sharing your last seeing Jamie. This is such a blast and love this concept in what you're doing..
"bohannon" Discussed on The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey
"Bohannon. Hey let's welcome to the special edition of the happy hour called your last decade. Welcome thank you so much for having me. Well this has been such a fun project of ours by the way because the feedback. I've had heard the most is looking back has been so fun for people and I am someone who likes to look back. I don't want to dwell on the past by any means but I like to look back and learn and see and progress and we over here they are like we have to talk to Liz because a lot has happened in the last ten years of your life. Yes yes and I actually don't look back that much so I'm really grateful for the opportunity to do this. Good back through the memory archives in my favorite parts of writing a book was like it's crazy. How once you open up one door? It's been shut for really long time in your memory. How it can kind of late trigger other memories in. I don't know it's just it's fun so I'm grateful for the opportunity to get Tim. Reflect a little bit because I actually don't do enough of that now woken. Well speaking of Your Book Beginners Pluck which came out over. I two thousand nineteen congrats. Thank you thanks so much. That was a wild ride. I mean you're like the things that I didn't think I would be doing in the last ten years. Will your six months on the other side of it? How do you feel now? I have never done anything. I'm like I am so glad I did that in the idea. It was just so much though. Like I mean it's just like it is such a process but it was search hard work so much mental emotional intellectual Labor that goes into it. I just every time I see it and just kind of catch glimpses of it whether it's on my bookshelf for the office. I just don't really proud of it in really thankful for the experience in. I just continue to be blown away after you get this. Where when people are so generous to reach out and to share their experience to share. How and why? It touched them in inch. It's incredibly rewarding. Overly grateful while you should feel really grateful and you did such a great job at that work and so a lot of it is some of the things we're GonNa talk about today. Which is fun exciting. Because you talk a lot about the story of SACO in your book and I want you to take everyone listening back to two thousand ten now. If my memory serves me right into dozen ten you had already traveled to Uganda and begin the process of starting Saco. Mri Yes okay. Good good you're so good you do the exact launch date union. We're GONNA bury impressed with your chronology. Do a little bit of research on the phone. And I'm actually really grateful when you when you share the concept with me and I was like okay. Ten years back. I was like we'll take about ten years old and then I started doing it and I was like no leopards me about a year in into having traveled to Uganda having come up with the concept in. I'm really grateful to start there because I tell the very beginning story more and I think that It's easier to glamorize or attended for there to be some nostalgia about like very very early days when I came up with the concept in those of you don't know you bought one way plane ticket to Uganda. And I showed up and I met some amazing women and we started these Kinda crappy at the time sandals and made this really ethic promise that was like hey obey if you promised to make these sandals for the next nine months because there is a gap between school and university in. That was the problem that we were trying to solve is basically this kind of gap for limited. Who come from low income backgrounds. That are really academically. Gifted this gap between high school and college where a lot of them ended up moving back home in getting married not continuing on to university even though they want to and even other academically qualified so the challenge that we exist us all as bridging this gap right so that was eleven years ago but if we go to ten years ago. I'm like I've made the promise I said. Live Rama's that you will go to college in. I'm in the midst of then being on the other side of going. Like who crap of its. Let's go back to two thousand ten because you set it up so beautifully and guys get her book and read it. It's it's just a fabulous story as well and you've been on the Happy hour before did not do my research on that to figure out what guests whoever there's a long time ago but with my first son so I do remember that over three and a half years ago. Crazy crazy crazy. Okay let's go back to two thousand ten You have started this new thing at the time I wanNA know. Does it feel like a hobby or do you feel like it's GonNa last year or do you think this is the rest of my life somewhere between there? This point in two thousand ten we had just sold enough sandals probably by the end of two thousand nine. We told enough sandals that we were able to send Mary mercy. Rebecca T. UNIVERSITY. So those were at first three win the women that. I sat down with underneath the mango tree and Here's the deal. You may be sandals. Promise you're going to college and then move back home to the. Us In tried to start selling my car so my gosh. I didn't do that. This is really fun okay. So in the beginning of two thousand ten than we just sold enough to send those three women university in. This is the point in the story. We're we're like okay now. What's next week fulfilled that I promise but then we were at this really interesting place. We're like it work what we do what we call it a day in say like that was like a really fun. Post College Adventure. You know like we enabled three women to go to university and now I need to go get a job like you know by this point. By the way I was six years out from ever being able to pay take a paycheck from saint go so like evidently wasn't making money in two thousand into don't pretend. My husband had a fulltime job in his fulltime job was. He's a project manager will tech company and he was making money but very much so we were living off of his zero entry level salary so it already felt a little scary and a little stretch. You know 'cause I wasn't making any income in the nats when we were. Oh let's make it even more intense. Maybe Vinciguerra his own source of income. That we have we should get rid of and but it really felt like it was a crossroads. Your question about hobby your life or what is this is really interesting because we were asking ourselves. That exact question right. In this moment we were like okay. Worked THE FIRST TIME AND WE HAVE TWO OPTIONS? We can call it a day instead. I was fine or we can really dive in in say. We're doing something really special. The product is resonating people with people. The story is resonating with people. It's actually making an impact. Let's go all in and it was really the beginning of two thousand ten. We're we're like let's go all in. We were making no money. We were continuing to lose. Money is a lot of businesses in the early days. Spending a lot of money in it long cashless cycle. Actually get that money back in. We knew we couldn't hire anybody unless we could go out and raise capital and we knew no one would give money. I mean we couldn't get bank financing. We couldn't get. I mean it was just like okay. You know to like twenty something. Year olds are trying to start a manufacturing company in a developing economy. Like yeah right and Ben happens to have a skill set that is basically the exact opposite of mine and he at the same time you know. He had been working at this company in learning at time in was really enjoying business but really had this desire. I WANNA use my mind love of business. I wanted to do something in the world that I feel really proud of in. That is making an impact That I can really stand behind in in in so we were like well enough. The opposite skill set. You have this basically you wanted. Us business to make a difference in the world lakes. We just do this together. We spent a lot of time talking to other apple specifically that were married had marriages that we looked at like that type of marriage that we WANNA have ten years twenty years thirty years from now because when we first started telling people that is newlyweds. We wanted to run this company together. We got a lot of pushback in for people being like us. Not Wise. Like you're gonNA kill each other like in we really. We really wanted to you. Know He'd the wisdom but also cargo path into the process that we took what you're saying. Okay let's identify four or five couples. We love their marriage. We love their partnership and just go. Lay Out all of our cards in say. Are we dumb? Should we do it when you can actually get feedback? We came to that end of the process. Being like we want to give it a try and we don't know we know what's going to be challenging. We think the ways in which it's going to be challenging or the ways in which we want to be challenged and so it was right around this time that then with job we lost our health. Insurance we sold everything that we own because we know money to finance this trip that we wanted to go on till basically launched a brand so we sold everything that we own including a bunch of the wedding presents it. We had just gotten like this point. We've only been married for like nine months six. So much transition. Liz I it was a lot and we bought a on element and lived out of our car for the next nine months. Ten years ago I was living out of my car. I did NYC snapper co many questions about this okay so the first one is like like we hear stories like this and of course your ten years in Bravo Bravo way to go. You guys followed your dream to your heart and look at this great thing you've done but it could now have felt like that in that moment you had to have felt like this is either going. Did you think to yourself? This'll be the best thing ever. They're worse or did you think this is going to be okay or the worst like where. Where were you after? You guys made that decision. I honestly think I was like this is going to be the best thing ever or it's GonNa be a great tale of epic failure but it will be fun to share. I do yeah. We're having that perspective of someone that I really loved was Kinda lecturing me and telling me why it was a terrible idea. Opportunity costs in 401K's in you know all of this stuff and I just remember thinking like even if this fails literally what I will learn from this process and I mean everything from about how to run a business on Mike. I think running in failing at a business is probably more valuable than an MBA. Even if you don't succeed what what I'M GONNA learn out of this is GonNa be monumental and then also from a character perspective being like. I just can't envision coming out on the other side of this in not being more of the person that I want to be even if I love that And I think that that was what enabled us to have the Let's do it like even if it fails. We're GONNA come out on the other side in. I think I think honestly our marriage was the thing that felt the riskiest than everything else kind of felt like if the business fails we will learn from it. You know if we fail as entrepreneurs we will learn from it but let's make sure we don't damage at graphic that's real you know. That was the only one that actually did really kind of feel scary..

The average girl in her home community was married by the age of thirteen anguish. Sometimes as early as eight or nine years old and less than eight years later which in the world of global development is readily we short amount of time the average thirteen year old fourteen year old fifteen year old sixteen year old. Almost all of the teenage women in her community are in school and the the reason that they're in school is only because of Aggie like it's because they have seen through aggies story when she was thirteen A Guy offered her dad twenty cows in exchange for her marriage village. Aegis her dad and her dad said no and he was like shocked. The whole village was like nope. I'm keeping her in school so she went on to high school. Oh she graduated from college now. She's managing director of the global fashion brand and it was like an I am just I.

I've never met them. I probably never will meet them. Like the only reason that her community is changing is because of her like aggie has a voice racist perspective in an impact like when they see aggies trajet like what for them to see me and see my story like it's completely irrelevant to them. Like okay. Cool some girl that group group in America. That did this did that. It's like the aggie has this perspective. And she has a voice and she has a way of speaking and she has an experience that can burrow its way into the hearts of not just the young women but of the you know the families were making decisions on behalf of this of these young women in like she can light path for our freedom and for possibility in a way that I literally never could and I think as leaders we get so consumed and obsessed with like. What's my role? And what's my impact. Can we forget that it's like you have a don't understand like the whole point of view being who you are created to be so that you can spark that and someone else and then they can go on and create change in impact packed in imaginable.

Welcome to the podcast thank you. I'm so excited to be here so I'm excited on multiple fronts first of all we got to meet in person we both spoke focused global leadership summit about a month ago as we're recording this and I just gotTa tell you Liz I was blown away by your talk absolutely absolutely blown away first of all just by your vulnerability and sharing your story and you know sometimes when people get on big stages like that they feel like they have to position themselves doesn't make themselves look like really cool and like you right out of the gate. You're like I'm just going to blow all that out of the water and just tell you the worst moments of my life which is so oh great in encouraging so I'm thrilled to dive into this book but before we jump into the book could you tell us a little bit about you about Saco designs signs and kind of your background yeah so as mentioned my name is Liz work in Bohannon and I am the CO founder and CEO of a socially really conscious fashion brand called Saco design so I moved to Uganda almost a decade ago as a recent college without a plan Dan a job but I did have this journalism degree and this desire one to build relationships and community. I I all through college had said I was really passionate about issues that was facing women and girls living in extreme poverty and conflict in post conflict zones but had this kind of come to Jesus moment where I realized even though I was intellectually really interested in that. I actually didn't have a single friend. That was a girl that grew up in that context and that made me super uncomfortable. I was like okay. If you're going to keep you know being quote unquote passionate about this thing your life needs to reflect it a little bit more unique a community and you need relationships relationships and you need friendships that are reflective of that and so. I moved to Uganda quit my first corporate job as you can imagine my parents were super excited about that and move to Uganda without got a job but I had this journalism degree that I had just earned android just traveled the country asking questions and following leads and building relationships and long story a long I that an incredible group of young women who were in between high school and university had just graduated from a pretty academically rigorous selective high school program but they couldn't afford to continue onto college in Uganda. There's a nine month gap between high school and college and so all of a sudden this kind of big. Meta issue of women girls living in extreme poverty became really focused like twenty five women who could go to college and become leaders in in their community but we need to figure out a way to bridge this gap and so I started a charity and then for a variety of reasons shut it down and became really convinced that we needed to you create sustainable dignified marketplace solutions for some of the world's most interesting problems in the night started a chicken farm and that failed old and then I designed a pair of strappy funky sandals and kind of figure out how we could make them and cobbled together a very rudimentary supply chain and in manufacturing system and basically promised three young women in Uganda if they made these handles for the next nine months that they would go to college the next fall and came back home to the US and it started selling sandals. Even though I had zero interest in business or fashion and ten years later that's still what we're doing. We've got a staff of about over sixty full time employees and Uganda we've create opportunity for over one hundred thirty six young women to continue onto university through our work study program in Uganda and now we have scholarship ship partners in Ethiopia and we work with fairtrade artisans all across the globe and then the products are all sold actually here in the US through a network of primarily female social entrepreneurs lures who are selling the product sharing the SACO story and earning an income for themselves and building their own social businesses and that is what we're up to okay all right on episode two of my no. I'm kidding. That was amazing. Though is incredible incredible so I WANNA I WANNA go back to those early moments of your your journey. I mean basically your story is a story of I tried this. It didn't work so I tried this but there was something driving that in the beginning and the title I love this book is beginners pluck first of all. I love that title Word Pluck. We don't use the word enough. I'm like a secret mission with this his book to do a lot of things but one of them the secret part is like I just WanNa Bring Clark back into modern lexicon if you look at it but if you look at Google so you can see like trends over time and it'd be funny if pluck all of a sudden spiked in twenty nine thousand something God i looked it up before the book got out into the Universe and took a screen shot of like here's where PLC is today just with the wild hope and dream that like a year or two from now I can visibly on Google see a spike in workbook. That's awesome all right so let's talk about because we hear about beginner's luck rate and you talk about pluck. Let's talk about that. We're what does the word pluck mean. Dow Well. We all know the verb black right so pluck your eyebrows plucked chicken pluck a Guitar Guitar but the Noun Pluck means spirited and determined courage I love but it also sounds like what it means right when you say that someone's like plucky lucky. There's like a vibrancy a boldness to the word that I just love but the play on the play on words is actually there's multiple things that go into it one is that my journey of coaching and teaching primarily other women but entrepreneurs to to grow and scale their businesses says something that I noticed specifically that women do and I will say that the book is not written just for four women and actually really passionate about that and really believe that more men need reading books. I really enjoyed it by the way just as I mean. It felt so relevant to me. It did not feel like you're writing just to women so a lot of men in assigning line at that we're like. I'm buying this book for my wife or my daughter into every one of them. I looked them in the is one of my great. I hope she loves it. You should read it before you give it to her. It just because it's written by a woman doesn't mean it's four women exclusively but that being said I noticed in a lot of coaching entrepreneurs specifically women did do this thing we would invite women who were crazy successful in their business just killing the game with sales with building their teams and invite them to a call or speak on stage in a lot of times they would start out with this thing where they would say you know. I think I really just got lucky and women tend to do that. They tend to attribute their success to external factors. Were actually men are more likely to attribute their success to internal like I got it because I'm awesome and so from the beginning of our business. We have this rule when anybody nobody teaches. It's like you cannot use the word luck I don't want. It's not attributed to let because I'm I'm seeing what you're doing and that my friend is pluck like you're putting yourself out there. You're iterating failing. You're getting back up there. You're setting huge goals and then you're figuring out how to make them into these digestible. Achievable Chunks like that is pluck so a saying at our company has become who who needs luck when you've got pluck and really valuing this idea of pluck over overlook the next thing is that the concept of beginners pluck is because the whole concept of the book is really reframing how we think about being being a beginner how we think about the stages of learning. I know in my own career I have just wasted so much time and energy bemoaning that I'm a beginner. I don't have the right connections. I don't have the right degree. I don't have the right experience of how am I going to be successful and I. I had this moment several years ago where my entire world rolled kind of upside down and I realized Oh my gosh the reason that you've actually had the success that you had wasn't despite the fact that you were a beginner dinner in all of these areas. It was actually because you were and really saying like Oh my gosh this is like it felt like this magic like discovery and and then wanting to get really intentional honestly I for myself going through and saying what were the things that I did in the early days as a beginner just naturally because that's what beginners naturally do that now that I'm ten years into running this company you know that now has investors and we've got employees on four continents and all of these things that ice is. I've stopped doing that. I think are actually harming me and my ability to lead and be creative and take risks and so the book is really about going through and I've have developed fourteen of those principles that these are the things that I think beginners naturally do better than experts so if you're a beginner congratulations you you just have to know that like you've got this magic sauce and kind of own it and be intentional about it. If you're an expert or if you you're on the road to becoming an expert that's great to but here's how to intentionally channel that inner beginner and can get back to being a really curious question asking iterative creative leader that I really believe is going to help you become more effective in the long haul channel your inner beginner. It's agreed freeze to all all of these. All you speak in bumper stickers. I love that so i WanNa talk about just a couple of chapters that actually the first handful of them 'cause you said there are several but the first thing that really struck out to me is the chapter called own your average and what does that mean. It's not listened. That's not advice right that we hear FBI. We tell people here. You're so special you so unique. There's you know there's never been anyone like you. You're and you're saying no your your average. You are right and it's not exactly what people wanna hear but it's so experience to me yeah. This was by far probably my favorite and absolutely the most intellectually challenging chapter two right because here I am trying to write this book inspires and creates freedom and gets people to create but in order to do. I felt like I could not authentically do that. Without laying some groundwork work and the groundwork is the exact opposite of what everyone else is saying that like to your point. You're so special and the reason it felt felt so important for me to deal with this right off. The Bat and to kind of say like first principle is going to be hard to swallow. You're probably average is because I have seen seen firsthand in myself and then with thousands of people that I've been coaching to run their own businesses. How this narrative of like yours so so special. You're smarter than you think you are in your you know stronger you know is actually affecting people and here's what I've I've seen todd. It either affects people in one of two ways one. They believe the narrative. They're like Homo. Okay I'm special. I'm a little bit above average and I'm and I'm smart and I'm kind of inherently good at everything that I try and I've got this like inherent talent and when people believe that I don't believe it actually empowers them. It actually creates it's a sense of fear in anxiety and people to leave their above average and believe that they're special that we have been told man. You're so good at everything that you try the actually start to act out of fear and anxiety because they're like okay. I'm seen as special. I'm seeing is above average seen as talented and smart. I don't WanNa do anything anything that is going to cause me to lose that identity or 'cause anybody to question this inherent identity that I have so they start only saying yes to stuff that they know they'll succeed seat at that they'll excel in they start playing it really safe and ultimately the demise of being a creative of an innovator of being a leader is that you start playing it safe and becoming a lot lot more concerned with protecting your ego and your image than you do about what you're creating out in the world so that's if you believe the narrative if we're doing our job and telling people are special. They believe that's what's happening on the other side. There are people that just frankly don't believe won't ever believe it. They're like I don't that doesn't resonate with me. I'm not I don't think I'm super smart have hidden talent above average or super gifted and what it does is it makes those people go and it seems like being special is really really important. It seems like like I need to believe that I'm special before I can go out and do something really really special. I'm never really going to believe that in so I guess I'm just GONNA I'm. I'm left behind. I'm UN UN special below average person who's GonNa live in special below average life. in in special must be this requisite that being extraordinary must be a requisite to living an extraordinary life and so at the plate that you're spewing this narrative and people believing ed or kind of screwed and people that don't believe it or kind of screwed. We gotta go like well..

I'm also the author of the accidental creative Diane Empty Louder Than Words and the new book Hurting Tigers which is about how the lead creative people well when we hear the stories of entrepreneurs especially when they're in written form like in books we often hear the backwards sanitized version in right or we often hear platitudes. We hear them talking about big. Principles big ideas things that we've heard a million times things that aren't necessarily always helpful old for those of us who are in the trenches who are really trying to build something a meaning but we really don't know how to take the next step. Well recently met someone who has not only bend successful in her own right is an entrepreneur but she's teaching other people how the follow in her footsteps but she's doing very practical very authentic transparent apparent way and I was just blown away by a talk.

We're in the business of turning clever ideas into customer value. That's what we do and the thing is great ideas and great creative work. Take time they take energy is one of the things I wrote about in hurting tigers is leaders. We have to protect the time and energy of our team in order to provide them the space. They need to do their best work. Well we need to do that for ourselves as well and if you're a freelancer an an entrepreneur somebody who's running your own business. You have to manage yourself by protecting your time and energy to do that work. That is truly valuable the things you're being paid paid for well. Doing things like administrative work accounting invoicing. That doesn't necessarily leave you at the time and energy..

"Jim Bohannon on NewsRadio ten twenty Katie k. Down here sitting in for Jim Bohannon. Let's shift gears a little bit here by now you probably have heard about the controversy around a playful song. It's banter, I have to admit last year when this came up I predicted what would happen last year where the first complaints, and they were kind of outliers. I'm talking about baby it's called outside. I think classic holiday song. It's banner of romance sex, even as a drink mentioned. And then this year the next step happened with the PC people. They complained to a radio station in Cleveland who stopped playing it. I don't think they had a million complaints. So you've heard, you know, the baby it's cold outside. But did you know that there's a PC version out there, and it's not a parody? I think these people put it out in order to say this is how the song of this romance. And the guy saying, but baby it's called outside. You know, how is this such a big deal? Well stations are dropping it. I predict by next year, a lot more of them will drop it and had there'd be people coming after you. If you say what's wrong with this song? It's written in the forties. Come on. It's nothing harmful about it. Here is the PC version now notice how the guy acquiesced to the woman saying, I gotta get home. And all yeah. I wouldn't want to keep you here. And I'll text you later, and all this type of stuff are men today really supposed to follow this version a baby it's cold outside. I have been.

"Welcome back to the jim bohannon show this is amazing story the one that's told in the saboteur and all the more amazing by virtue of the fact that it it actually happened this was a novel but this basic story actually took place when you go about writing a novel andrew grossed you feel compelled to be accurate anomaly une big picture things but little picture things like if somebody says that they they ate at a certain restaurant in a hotel in london is it important to you that that restaurant was actually in that hotel in nineteen forty three i used to when i started out my career i wrote books with jim patterson and he always had a saying never let the truth interfere interfere with a good plot device so that the but the truth is when you're writing stuff of sort of not only historical precedent but stuff that becomes extremely meaningful both in terms of the course of history or as i did in this previous book which was the one man which was a holocaust story that was built off my own family history the burden of truth is a whole lot higher than anything i had previously done so the answer is yes in that respect the other thing is that the beauty of these historically set novels is in the richness the details and you know if you can sports someone and just make them feel as if they are now in norway for instance says this book is in nineteen forty three and you feel the you know everything from the ferocity of the storms that took place there that you know would would would have killed far any lesser man than these commandos or you know one person facing you know the odds of of literally holding off you know a twenty germans while while they were trying to make their way inside a factory you you in order to make someone sort of feel that they're set there then yes i think what you say whether it's a restaurant in london or whether it's exactly what took place there what you wanna do is amplify the emotions as only fiction can do but i think accuracy becomes vital one eight six six five zero jimbo one eight six six five zero five four six two six with andrew.
