My brain was processing the question and i would see it would go sometimes into philosophical place and then sometimes it would go into a really eft up. I'm going to be screwed up. But i'm going to be funny when i answer this question. Kind of place like when he you know. He's talks about how he's got his guitar tuned up and that's gonna come to lure her in like the pied like i thought i could make something real funny out of that but then i got my answer.

"Almost too old for if this was my last big crazy party shebang the time to go so i'm mentally prepared myself for the stuff i was gonna see. I was like you're going to see some stuff is guns and roses. Do you're gonna see some craziness. Yes so we get in there. And the first thing i noticed is each side of the room. There was a there was a table a very long table on each side one side had like a buffet style of food that hadn't been touched and then at the very end there was like a big salad bowl that had been scraped clean and then the other sad was all of this booze like all these of various liqueurs not any of it had been touched but at the but at the end was a cooler. That had sodas in it and not one diet. Coke was to be found everywhere. You look around. There's somebody eating a salad and drinking a diet coke and then i remembered own. Yeah it's two thousand twelve thousand nine hundred eighty six. I love that. That is a great story and up just sitting on the couch and talking about music the whole time at some point one of them complained that the music that was play was too loud. And i'll fly. You know what that's my kind of party. That is kind of party that's awesome. That is great. Oh that's a portfolio and then pittman came in now the only one that got drunk he got drunk somewhere else and then came to the party. Pittman comes in and he is drawn and he looks at me and we lock eyes then he goes on. This is me a huge hug. And i was like. Oh my god. He knows my name. This is not my friend jacking with me. This is eddie. hugs me. And he goes the next words out of his mouth is where's wreck. Because he knew wherever. I win you would see rick with me. He's he's over there talking to buffalo so then he goes over and hug drink and everything and i was like. Oh that's so cool. Chris pitman knows my name and then it hadn't clicked that. I've been talking to this guy for much just texting back and forth and then he comes over any kind kinda gets quiet to me. He's light listen man. I'm sorry i couldn't get you passes to the show. All these people here my family and they were coming into. Jj gotta make excuses. He goes well. Looks like you were right. Because i said i'll see you there anyway. It looks like you're right. You found a way in so doesn't is it fair to ask in like i said i am a casual fan at best. Is it fair to ask your favourite. You mentioned incarnation of the band. Or are you just a fan of all of them. I'm a fan of all of them to an extent. My favorite incarnation would be a liar. If i said it was anything other than axl rose dizzy reed of course frank. Dj ash bumble foot. Tommy stinson chris. Pitman feel like i'm forgetting somebody. Richard ford is. That era is the era. That i saw that a party with that i got no. They knew i was I pulled kind of a stupid kid. Move when i first met them. Which i don't ever recommend doing. I think it's a move. I would never do it. Day in hindsight but i found the hotel they were in and i met him at the hotel move on. My part should have never done that. But that's only in hindsight security came to throw me out..

"Maybe three songs max by i consider one of the greatest artists and rock and roll and over here in this and i've got the beatles and others say you can want in one hand crap in the other And i'm immediately reminded of that. Because over here is bruce springsteen and over here is the crab. You're not a fan despise the beatles. Anybody that listens to my podcast. I pissed off every beatles fan in the world at least once. And that's honey. There's too i absolutely hate. And that's the beatles nirvana. I think the beatles are the most overrated band in the world. Now i think granted considering that back in the day before the beatles came along all you really had was teen angel teen angel and the balloon crab but then like here comes the beatles and all of a sudden. Here's decent music to the ears of somebody who'd never heard decent music before. Yeah i get it but when but fast forward to this year when we've had decent music calm and go at this. The are are at the bottom of that list so can only to nevada. So what's what i'm gonna propose it'd be thinking about this is I talked about my. How many podcast. Where we talk about Different artists and bands and it is very clear. I graduated high school in seventy seven And i kind of quit listening to music a lot in the eighties. So have anything good. Come out since ninety two so You throw you put a hundred thousand dollars in front of me and say name tin guns and roses songs and i could not do it without a computer. We can fix that tonight. I'm going to open your eyes. So beauty so What's interesting is. I had a guy. And that's one of my catchphrases. What i did though. There took the thing where i said i was right about your thing in like and crapped on it and then i took but you see. I'm going to show you why i'm right about my thing. That's me being a jerk and you're off so so let's say though the whole beatles staying yet like it's true. I do hate the beatles. But i really play it up her absolutely get stick. Well that's like. I put down There is a the local sports station. Had a thing called bands of your lives and there was eleven questions and the first question was banned. You hate and band.

"H every week we take a. We have a giant wheel. If you will more like a lottery we say a wheel because it's audio. Nobody can see us anyway so the visual of giant wheel is much better sounding than the fact that we just have names being drawn randomly out of a hat each and every week we randomly pick a song by guns and roses velvet revolver duff mackay gins loaded slash featuring myles kennedy. The juju hounds are any of the bands or solo projects from the original five members of g. Are we choose one song every week. We break that song down. We listened to it. We review it and we give it a rating. It sounds like the pot of thunder podcast. Which is a kiss. Podcast that i am in no way affiliated with. That's because it's a direct rip off of pot of thunder and we say that in the first episode now in episode eight. I think we've been. We're on our ninety first episode now so it gets a little fuzzy and think about epa. Within the first ten episodes the guys from pot of thunder came onto our show. They heard about us ripping them off. They listened to the show. They liked it. They contacted with us. They came on the show. They gave us their blessing to rip off their show. So now i'm going to call it a spinoff of pot of thunder even though i'm in no way affiliated with them so in the it's a small world b clark Who also was from tip below mississippi and rub tarmac do. Bruce springsteen sings the alphabet. Podcast where they took every bruce springsteen song and talked about it in alphabetical order stated not do it random and they said in their very first podcast that There is a there is alphabetical beatles. Which was a bunch of guys going through every beatles song alphabetical order and they reached out to said. Will you be offended if lee still this format and they said One give us you know sh share that you know that you we inspired you and to you gotta finish like you can't stop all right and so and now than they've the alphabetical beatles has finished but jv and rob have gone through They went through a whole season. Went through every song than their second season was. They went through every album in chronological order talking about every song and with a different context right like it's it's a different discussion. The song by itself compared what it is unlike the album and now than the third season you know versus now released a couple of albums. They're going to go back and catch that. So i guess it's interesting to me that you bring to me both bruce springsteen and the beatles because here's what i hear again springsteen is a guy i don't i'm a casual fan of don't know more than of course the hit. They play on the radio. And the one that we're going to talk about a little later tonight that i heard for the first time tonight. Which by the way opened my eyes to. I need to dig a little deeper into this library. Any proposal for you in a little bit dustin. okay. I'm gonna tease okay. Okay over here on this hand. I've got bruce springsteen who even though..

"burcham" Discussed on Workplace Perspective

"And welcome to workplace perspective. Dip Sean Burcham here Theresa. We're really happy to have you here so before we get started. Why don't we do we normally do and that's to have you tell our listeners? A little bit about you and what you do sure like you said by named Sean Burcham born and raised here in Missouri Really started started a business out of the garage. Everything has to start somewhere right. So we sleep in the garage and Love stories like that when I hear them and ultimately that's how businesses this is get started. my wife and I started the company and It's about twenty one years old now so the company is essentially a wholesale food and equipment company. We specialize in putting brand food programs inside supermarkets and convenience stores all across the country. The working about forty two states now and our flagship flagship program. What we started with was a branded food concept called champs chicken so think of it like putting KFC or churches or pop is chick filet a inside the supermarket and convenience store and Having a brand that flies with a very high quality fresh breaded program But we now have blue Taco which is also a franchise that that is Inside supermarkets and convenience stores and Cooper's express brand and some private label program so what we really do is work inside supermarkets and convenience stores what we're most proud of is our culture in the employee owner base that we've developed and ultimately Camilli. Our core purpose is to help others be successful in both work in life. I love that. I think that's great. You sound very busy. I like that too so just just so. We're all on the same page. Why don't you tell us a little bit before we get into about what an employee owned company or is the acronym it's E. S. O. P. Correct yes There's several different types of employee ownership. We what we did is create an an sop so That stands for employee stock doc ownership plan and essentially what that does is Overtime that transfers the shares to all of the employees All of the employees employees both the existing employees that were here at the time and then going forward Every employee gets shares of the company each year as the company Danny is valued each year. NIECE OP is extremely unique in the fact that it's very similar to a four one K. And he sop is essentially essentially a qualified retirement plan and it has a plan document much like a 401k does so very unique concept and There there's there's no discrimination in their you can't give Some employees more stock than others. It's strictly non-discriminatory and based upon the total percentage of pay that you make compared to the total pay of the company so it's great Great Program is a really interesting concept and I think when you and I I spoke today I think you said it was seventeen years ago that you made the decision to to transition your company. Is that correct. Actually it was just three years ago so it was seventeen years in two. Oh but Yeah we actually just transition to an employee stock ownership plan January third of two thousand seventeen eighty. Oh all right I got my seventeenth mixed up. We'll tell tell me. Tell me about the biggest challenge. Then because he's he's GonNa be fresh in your mind. I love it. I want to know the biggest challenge that you faced when you decided to make this jump. Yeah I think it's a little bit different for everybody. I'll I'll tell you mine is the fact that as a founder you can imagine the blood sweat and tears that you put into a company and created in the SOP is essentially selling pulling the company we went from zero percent E- Sop so we're one hundred percent privately held my wife and I held all the stock to essentially Giving that Stock and selling that stock essentially to the trust which the busy trust. And there's a trustee that controls that and they're responsible Ospel for divvying out the shares To all the employees so for me that that the biggest challenge was that mental hurdle of man. This is Kinda my thing and and it's it's like selling your company to some degree. The beauty of the shop is I get to stay here and work As long as the board will have with me and at my age it really wasn't an exit strategy. It was a strategy to give everybody a stake in the outcome. But it's it's giving up your company To some degree The ownership of it. So that was that was a a mental hurdle to get over if you will back. That's gotta be tough that entrepreneurial spirit and going it alone and then realizing saying well maybe we need. Maybe we'd be better off. Did this a little bit different. Do you mind sharing with us. Why it is what the impetus behind it was? Yeah for me. It really has given everybody a stake in the outcome of of what this company has in. It's future we're we're very fortunate. Had Double Digit Growth for twenty years. We feel we can sustain that for twenty plus more years Wanted to really send a message to our employees owners That were not selling out the private equity be. We're we're committed to creating an evergreen company that's going to be here a hundred plus years trading succession planning And just really didn't want to see all of this work go to a large company or Private Equity Company and all of these jobs disappear To some in you know in some cases when you sell out to those other individuals vigils and we also wanted to make a commitment to the community where we're in a very small community. We'd be become a big part of of the local economy here so we also also wanted to send a message locally that this company's here to stay I think that's great because a lot of people do it for various different reasons and some of it not all of ours. ALTRUISTIC is yours ars which I think is a wonderful reason to do it in it sort of I am going to ask you about that a little bit later on the dynamics of that in y you you know why companies choose to do it in the dynamics that that that can create but tell me tell me about how things change then. Did you have when you made the decision addition and you wanted to make those commitments. So how did it change the culture that organization if it did it all a great question because we actually coach people on this through our coaching company. But I I would tell you that. Just doing an OP. Transaction and becoming employee owned whether it's an east op op or some other type of employee. Ownership really does nothing for your culture. If you don't communicate the the reasons why it's good for the the new employees owners so communication Asian is is a big part of it. We we had spent a lot of time Since two thousand eleven we've been a complete open book management company and we've really we really spent a lot of time teaching people to think and act like owners and understand the financials of the business and how tough business is so for us. It was kind of the icing scene on the cake. And we communicated all the way through the e Saab Transition Process What was going to happen so Long answer answered your question there but just implemented in east quite frankly won't ever change the culture if you don't do it right and communicate the reasons behind it. I think so too and and I think that well tell me about some of the concerns that the employees had were there concerns from the employees. was there a bit of little bit of doubt or had you created such goodwill with the company that they were sort of on board with you or is was mostly well received because of are open management style the Open Book Management Style and the communication communication that we did along the way. The biggest concern comes in Informa-. It's almost an east APAs. One of those concepts is almost too good to be true through the tax advantages that are in play for the east self after it's a hundred percent he's up They essentially don't pay federal and state income income taxes because those taxes are actually paid through the Employees owners just like in a 401k when they cash out their stock whatever whatever tax x-ray they're at so the company along the way doesn't pay taxes but the biggest concern would probably be the just the thought process of Ono. uh-huh no was. That mean for me. I mean they think. Do I have to sign something. Do I have to pay more for this and again that that's just not the case. There's no risk. There's no personal personal guarantees there. There's absolutely nothing for the employees to sign. They have no downside potential. They've just got upside potential. So it's a great deal so for them but You know of course they're concerned about you. Know what type of risk does this create so And they answered as there is no risk. And how did you go about allaying. Those fears did you. Have someone come in and help you manage that process or did you know enough about it to be able to manage the process on your own to to Kinda help those fears and we we have some great Support from others in the industry that he stopped communities immunities actually a pretty small very helpful community so we we reached out to some other companies to see how they communicate eight these things. We had some advisors along the way that had some communication pieces as well so a little combination of everything. The great thing about the employee ownership ownership community is most people are very willing to share and And Mentor for no cost. So we developed a lot of peer friends throughout the throughout the process and continue to do that and and vice versa. Now that we're in it we like to talk and and be that mentor as well we. We're really passionate about the shop. And what's done for our company and all the people here. I think that's really interesting. I love this idea. I I think that Well like I said you you seem to have done it for really great reasons. But I know that there's other companies that are sometimes forced into doing it or do it for for less than you know philanthropic or altruistic reasons like you. Have you know motivated more by a company. centric reason may be risk management or looking for greater your profits or a better brand recognition with you know freeing up freeing up things the way that you can as far as tax advantages but I read an article go where you were quoted as saying that. If you take care of your employees they will be better prepared and far more motivated to take care of your customers. And I think that's great. But how do you do that without coming across as self serving. You know what I mean in. Maybe it's maybe it's in the way it's presented but maybe the experience that you've had or or some other organizations that you've that you've helped mentor found out about how do you how do you do that. How do you keep it? Yeah on the employee. Side as opposed to the company more company centric. Yeah Yeah I think that that really comes back to leadership ship and what type of leadership is in place in the Nissan is not right for everybody if you really not a servant leader and you really don't care about people and it is all about the prophets Then it's probably not a good fit for you. You really have to put the Egos aside and understand that Great leaders are people that ultimately try to put their people in positions to be more successful so Other there are companies out there and leaders out there that certainly wouldn't be a fit for The Isaq Motto and in my opinion so yeah because is you really have to get. I mean it's just not enough to do it to say great. We're going to put this in your hands because it sounds like you. You really thought long and hard about how to do that. And that you really really keyed into the fact that it's more than just the idea of ownership it's the it's the it's the realization of your part of this and you're helping helping to grow it to drive you. Yeah did I think the the the other just misconception about an ISA is okay okay. Now everybody's got ownership and everybody can vote and you know all these decisions. Now it's it's completely Everything has to go to vote. The reality of it is successfully sops much like other companies. They have to have a leader and they have to have a leadership team and Not Everybody is privy to every single thing that goes was on the company otherwise the growth would just be stifled so again just a lot of communication along those lines two with with every single individual in the company opening what that ownership really means and The fact that hey it's still is still run like a company. Now we do a lot of surveying and and we want a lot of input and we get a lot of input because we've got such an engaged group of individuals but At the end of the day we we do talk. A lot about How decisions I need to be made and Win Decisions need to be made by. Who is this? I love this concept. Really do well. We're going to take a quick break and when we come back we'll hear more from Sean about the challenges and rewards of running an e Sop stay with us. We'll be right back.

"I want to ask you about the report from the FBI read it. I know there's a lot you can't talk about when it comes to the report of the FBI report. What can you say about it? What I can say about it is that it we many. Questions, unanswered, many witnesses on interviewed and many leads on pursue, and it actually raises more questions than it answers. The other point to make is that the claim made by my Republican colleagues that there is no hint of misconduct in this report is absolutely untrue. I can't go into the contents, but I can tell you the failure to see witnesses and interview them witnesses who called in. I've seen the mounds of paper that record the FBI tip line people with relevant information who were never contacted let alone every doctor blazing Ford judge Cavanaugh himself never interview carry Burcham from Connecticut who offered very relevant information about outreach by judge cabinet before that New Yorker piece on Debra Ramirez, possibly contradicting his testimony before the committee never interviewed. So. There is a lot of work left undone and it amounts to, unfortunately a whitewash, not because of the FBI, but because of straitjacketing from the White House. And that's you believe the White House is the one who put a straightjacket on the investigation who limited the scope. The scale of the investigation, the White House is really responsible for circumscribing the witnesses. Limiting the time refusing at our requests made last Monday. The Senate Democrats gave them a list of twenty five including Dr battling Ford and judge Cavanaugh and carry Burcham who should be interviewed at a minimum. They got other lists as well, and they had the the tip line. They had suggestions from the interviews that they did do and the White House was the one who in effect straitjacketed. It's It's an. an Blumenthal, appreciate your time. Thank you. Thank you coming up. Next. What impact will the cavenaugh controversy have on the midterms? We'll talk.

"She said to me, look, she never really wanted to go public on this, but she can't get the attention of the FBI. She's tried several times to get these text messages through the. And she believes that they prove potentially two things that need to be looked in further one that Brett was fully aware of the reporting that was about to come down despite what his testimony was there that you just played that her friend who is named Karen euro. Savage was texting her that Brett was essentially trying to get her to do two things. One produce that wedding photo because presumably it showed the two of them Debbie and bread smiling together in a photo, ten years after the alleged incident and to to get her to go on the record, Karen to go on the record to refute Debbie's story, of course, carry never did that. She was an anonymous source refuting the story, but still my source carry. Things needs to be looked into further in terms of what Brett new and what he was coordinating and trying to do behind the seeds to refute w story. And Secondly, there's something I think that you need to point out lower down in the story that's really troubling, potentially, and that is. That these remember this is private correspondence between two friends and Kerry Burcham says, and that correspondence that she was very troubled by WSB behavior at that wedding, ten years after the alleged incident that she said that Debbie wouldn't go near Brett or his friends that she clung to her. Even though they were technically in a separate peer group, it was w was friends technically with Brett in his friends. And yet she wouldn't go anywhere near them. And she said in her memo outlining all of this, that it all makes sense to me. Now, Heidi of your reporting. These are texts from Yale friends of cavenaugh and so and they're referring to Brett certainly indicating that was direct contact with Brett himself above Debbie Ramirez before the New Yorker article came out and that what Brett was looking for was some way to refute what Debbie would say. That's right. And it was because my source carry Burcham who ultimately did go on the record with us about this memo was so concerned about that potential collaboration that she hired a lawyer because she wasn't getting through to the FBI on Sunday. Just yesterday, she hired a lawyer to help her bring this information forth because these text messages specifically say Brett, they say Brett wanted me Karen, her friend to speak out to refute the claims. Then she says, Brett's team, Brett's guy are trying to get her to do other things. I had to hand over this photo to Brett's teen, for instance. So clearly she is naming Brett by person by himself personally, and his quote unquote team that was trying to collect this information to essentially undercut Ramirez's story before it came out as of now as of ten PM any contact with the FBI about this? Nope. So I've been in contact with my source all day. Of course, in the course of. Today, it was reported. The White House is now ordering the FBI to expand its investigation, but Lawrence's a very much an open question as to whether this tight knit group of Yale University students who know Brett cabinet so well is ever going to be questioned in the course of this very short investigation. If there are text messages that exists between these two women, there could potentially be a whole stream of text messages as well between Brad cavenaugh and his close male friends as well who could have been witnesses to this alleged incident a run, clean Curie Burcham of partner in re in a major law firm trying to make contact with the FBI about this station, and she can't get through to the FBI with this information about these texts which appeared to indicate Brett cavenaugh had an awareness that there was an accusation coming for some reason. He knew that. Some kind of accusation coming from Deborah Ramirez before he read it in the New Yorker, and that's a contradiction of his under oath testimony..

"Comment relevent Hansen. I'm Katherine Burcham, Boston twenty-five new. That's not a real aircraft part. It isn't. It's DeLorean part. It's well, I'm not sure it came standard on all of the laureates Olympic only the good ones. So let's talk about a couple of things one it's not a flex capacitor. It's a flex capacitor to that's not a real thing and three it's from a movie, and how did she not know that that was I also have many questions, but I have no answers for you. I don't have any answers. But back to the future is possibly one of the most well known films in the American cannon from the last, you know, I'm not. Talking about whether or not, it's it's a great film of a bad film. Anything just everybody know at I thought I thought so too yet here we are having this conversation. And so unfortunately for her someone played a played a prank Connor, and so I wanna bring up one thing. And that's by wondering of two things first of all should she have checked with somebody? I mean, when you listen to the video it didn't she say that the pilot him sell for herself. It was either the pilot. I haven't seen the full segment, but it was either the pilot of the aircraft or was the owner or manager of the skydiving organization to immediate question would have no reason to think that that they're screwing with her. But that is epic trolling I applaud them. And so the flip side of that is was then okay thing to do. Yes. Absolutely. If you can't screw around local news. What can you do that? I don't have an answer for say. All right. That's fair enough. Yup. Yup. Believe everything you see on local news, especially if it's aviation related because they're probably getting it wrong. And this goes into a larger pet issue of mine in that there are people who know what they're talking about. And there are people who local news stations, especially can can often reach out to. And are we doing a good enough job to let them know the weird? They're I mean, they're in Chicago were very lucky to have in in some other places too. We've got some ABC geeks in the local news reporters who are also Aggie jokes. And so they're reporting is often much better than the local news would normally suggest we have had some issues where the local reporting has been very bad where I think it was an ABC seven investigation where they they had a Gotcha moment where flight attendant was taking a photo incitement engine now..

"And she didn't make much salary, but everything else is carved out and she was miserable. Don't worry, but five shame is she would say, you know, we had the Hungarian grandfather and once a year toward the end of her after she'd been at the VA for twenty years, she would, you know, do some gerrymandering and rigging with her days in her sick days and whatever. And she, she kick them all back so that she got seventeen days off or something at the end of the year. And then they take the cheapest flight to Hungary and stay there for two weeks. The case with those books literally like Europe on ninety nine cents a day, like literally. Steve, if that him he does version of zero. Oh yeah. The whole line of issues, Florida. You go back to those books max patta, like from the sixties or semi literally Europe onto ninety nine day or like insane, insane numbers. And that's what they would do. Great. We're staying in a youth hostel here seventies still care. Call the hostile. Yeah, so that would be their bag. And and I remember like sitting around going, how's it work where you just get paid for? So when you're in Europe, right, then you're eating crepes. Right. 'cause after you would do you are simultaneously getting paid making money like knew how does that work? Wizardry? Everything was like, hey, this is a big pile of wood over there. Now moving over there before dollars, but there's no like Ali crepes and the Woodall's stay there and then you pay me anyway. I'll still get my check. Never never could figure it out. So. Sadly that's kinda default setting. It's my. I spent zero to like thirty one and a half in that default setting later on when I finally got paid and showbiz show business, I got fifty dollars a bit to do Mr. Burcham on on Kevin and bean, and at the end of the month or every every two weeks we sit down and go. All right. How many bits did you do? Well, it did Monday and Friday. It's too bad. And then that following week I did a call. Then by two it'd be like, okay, five bits, two hundred fifty dollars like that. Was it. We back the beds out at the bits up, then I got a job doing like premier radio whenever over there in Sherman oaks on Ventura next to the Galleria. And that was like, will pay you eighty dollars, Burcham bet. And then I would come in with my Burcham beds. I did on Kevin being and they would send them out to other syndicated markets not not LA, but other physically male. The tapes, right? So then I'd go sit in the booth and it'd be like, all right. You did to dingo boys and three Burcham. The cabinet. Eighty dollars a pop. And so here's that. So even when I was in show business, it was still piecework. Yeah. And as they call it, like project pay for playing, yeah, you get paid..
