New York's Broadway costume designers lament about being left out of coronavirus aid

"Shut down in March, actors and stagehands weren't the only ones affected. The Save Our Stages Act just passed as part of the Cove in relief bill and will help theaters and cultural institutions tread water until the pandemic is over. But as W one way sees Jennifer of Anasco reports some businesses that support the arts industry say they've been for gotten John Christians in New York Inc has built costumes for a lot of the big shows Cat's frozen and the new musical six, which was supposed to open on March. 12 the day that all of Broadway shutdown So we're getting ready for opening night That night, Every machine was filled. Every table was filled. People were doubled up. People were coming and going, and then Just like that they were closed. The leadoff all 52 of their employees. Like everyone they thought maybe let me for a few weeks, But in June, they were told No theater won't reopen in 2020, and for us, Everything stopped, like all of our orders just completely stopped. That's Brian Blight, Christensen's life partner and the business manager of John Christians in New York. And it was really a moment of what are we going to do? Are we gonna close? We put everything in storage, Do we? Walk away. They didn't Instead, Blake realized they weren't alone all through the city, small businesses that depend on Broadway and the theater industry. We're figuring out if they could survive the pandemic to And the shops are very specialized. A costumes aren't closed. You can't buy them off the wreck. They're made to measure for specific actors and designed for performers to dance and sweat in them eight times a week. Here's Christenson. But we do is cut your it should be the finest quality. It's the best interiors the best flat linings that we confined to make the product that will last a long time. And be beautiful and worth that ticket price, Christiansen and Blight realized they were part of an entire custom ecosystem. It includes specialty dry cleaners who care for $10,000 dresses made of fragile fabrics, study with sequence or flowers and people who know how to make those flowers and people who put the pleats in the fabric. And makers of tap shoes and toe shoes and beat artists and fabric painters. There are people who make specialty undergarments and hats and armor. The list goes on. So the two men joined with 54 other small businesses to found the costume industry coalition. They're clear about what they need money. Life once a kind of bailout from the government. $3 million to erase the debt of these small businesses for 2020 we have to, I think in this country I'm talking about the arts and culture as something that is a warm, fuzzy and wonderful the for the human soul and start talking about it as the economic driver that it actually is, because the economic between Arkin cultures huge, the U. S. Bureau of Economic Analysis says in 2017. The latest figures they have available. The arts and culture sector was contributing about $877 billion to the GDP. That's 4.5%. It employs over five million arts workers nationwide. In New York state. The sector contributes over 7% of the GDP. That's bigger than finance. It's bigger than construction. Hi, I'm Kevin McCollum. I'm a producer of Broadway shows, including the musical six. The one that was supposed to open the day Broadway closed. Save Our Stages is so important. Unfortunately, the shops are somewhat not involved in that. The venues will get grants, but the shops that support them. They need to wait until the orders come in. They say That's why the government should also give money to the costume industry. And to those who build sets and props. Because this is about more than the question of whether theater will survive. It will Well, the artists who make it the artisans who make it still be able to call themselves New Yorkers. Sure, I guess you could say Let's move everyone out of the city. And if that's the kind of city New York wants to be, I don't think that's the case. I think we want the artist to be able to afford and work and live in New York City. A few avenues over

So I brought you back <Speech_Female> on for another one. <Speech_Female> And what <Speech_Female> is this <Speech_Female> crazy story? <SpeakerChange> You have <Speech_Male> to share with us. <Speech_Male> Yeah. So <Speech_Male> this crazy story was <Speech_Male> a few years after <Speech_Male> that the one before <Speech_Male> we were trying <Speech_Male> to build a nice software <Speech_Male> for Amazon business <Speech_Male> back. Then there wasn't <Speech_Male> very many Amazon software's <Speech_Male> we wanted to automate <Speech_Male> stuff. So we saw. <Speech_Male> Hey, we'd <Speech_Male> hire a Dev team. <Speech_Male> Well, we didn't know anything <Speech_Male> about hiring <Speech_Male> developers hiring <Speech_Male> developers as a whole <Speech_Male> nother and off. So <Speech_Male> we had found someone <Speech_Male> on a porker <Speech_Male> fiber and <Speech_Male> they had referred to us <Speech_Male> one of their friends to <Speech_Male> be a developer. Well, <Speech_Male> we made a classic <Speech_Male> mistake of not really <Speech_Male> doing much betting <Speech_Male> on that particular person. We <Speech_Male> really only knew <Speech_Male> his first name <Speech_Male> and we <Speech_Male> spent about a month <Speech_Male> teaching <Speech_Male> him what exactly what <Speech_Male> we wanted laying <Speech_Male> it out creating <Speech_Male> blueprints. Not <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> only do we interview him, <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> but we actually created a <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> blueprint to build <Speech_Male> the entire software and <Speech_Male> off his <Speech_Male> whole thing.

I'm going to be in Florida <Speech_Male> and for some reason <Speech_Male> we just bought all of <Speech_Male> that and just took his word <Speech_Male> for it. And so <Speech_Male> we spent a good month. <Speech_Male> We're talking twenty <Speech_Male> eight hours plus every <Speech_Male> single week <Speech_Male> napping out this software <Speech_Male> with him creating <Speech_Male> timelines. And <Speech_Male> one day <Speech_Male> we go to message <Speech_Male> him and he's just <Speech_Male> not there and we had <Speech_Male> a meeting schedule at 9 a.m. <Speech_Male> Does not show up 10 <Speech_Male> a.m. Doesn't show up 11 <Speech_Male> a.m. Doesn't show up we <Speech_Male> leave for the day we <Speech_Male> come back from next way day <Speech_Male> not there <Speech_Male> and the <Speech_Male> guy just totally disappeared. <Speech_Male> We never <Speech_Male> heard from it again. We <Speech_Male> went to <Speech_Male> the person who referred him <Speech_Male> he's dead. Yeah, <Speech_Male> you disappeared as well. <Speech_Male> It turns out I didn't really know <Speech_Male> him as well as <Speech_Male> he thought he did and <Speech_Male> we spent a good <Speech_Male> month pointing <Speech_Male> out this Deb project <Speech_Male> with the developer <Speech_Male> that never <Speech_Male> ended up working on this <Speech_Male> step project <Speech_Male> to begin wage. <Speech_Female> Now that is a true <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> ghost <Speech_Male> story. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Absolutely <Speech_Male> and really <Speech_Male> just <Speech_Male> a valuable lesson about <Speech_Male> hey, you should <Speech_Male> probably know the last <Speech_Male> name of the people you hired you <Speech_Male> should come back here approaches. <Speech_Male> You should <Speech_Male> probably <Speech_Male> connect with them <Speech_Male> on social media get <Speech_Male> a copy of their drivers <Speech_Male> license and actually <Speech_Male> see if they <Speech_Male> have different profiles online <Speech_Male> and do some background <Speech_Male> before you <Speech_Male> invest in something <Speech_Male> big wage <SpeakerChange> developments <Silence> with someone. <Speech_Female> Yeah.

"And therefore they understand that it's in their best interest to partner with you instead of just be a typical employed. Yeah, but I guess my my hesitation is financial cuz I'm like when you talk about business managers, I'm like, oh they're expensive and I just the business is not paying for itself right now. And yeah, I have resources obviously to invest in the business, which I'm doing cuz you need that but cuz I mean, would love I would to hire someone just you know as a 1099 or something and just have someone there. It's just not there yet. So right part of mine. Yeah, and you can baby step into it. There's a lot of well a lot of business managers do charge kind of more like a a high-ticket, you know, they expect a certain number of hours per month and you have to pay them based on that. There's other opportunities where they're not billing that way or they have a starter package. It might be more affordable to you sometimes and again this kind of goes back to what's your time worth versus what is your how much money do you have to invest but sometimes you get Junior due diligence and find a VA that's almost as skilled and committed as an online business manager, but that takes your time to find that person to do that research to do that homework. So it's really kind of.

"But in business if you take my idea and you run with it and make money with it, well now I'm upset, you know, and especially if there's copyright infringement and who has time for all of that and the lawyers expenses so that that level of trust is there but then also I think for me on a more personal value level of I guess I'm looking for a a team member without being able to hire a team cuz I'm just not there yet, but someone who is willing to care about it as much as I do. Yeah, I hear you. And you know, that is definitely a big challenge. First of all the NDA that's a simple solution part of it's just letting go of that mental peace because as soon as you have that contract in place and this is one of the biggest mistakes I see people doing when they hire a VA or or Outsource in anyways, they don't have any sort of an agreement written agreement in place. So all you need to do to alleviate that concern is to get that written agreement that says that they do not own the works that they're producing on your behalf. So you can you can alleviate the fear of somebody taking your content and and duplicating it by having that NDA that contract in place now, it's it's still could happen. But at least you have a legal background to stand on and then you can you know, send out a cease-and-desist and have some bearing to behind that and even just dead. Having that contract often is enough to discourage individuals from taking that step. So that's kind of an easy one. Just make sure that you have the contract in place off and then you know as far as finding somebody that has the heart and soul. There's a lot of I found working with virtual assistance and other Freelancers that some of them are Kind of doing this as a part-time job. They're not really there or committed to it. If something better comes along their kind of fly by the night and so really is a matter of making sure that you've done your due diligence or that you're hiring an agency like mine that does the due diligence to find the person that's going to be committed for the Long Haul and off when you step up to somebody that's more of like an online business manager versus just a virtual assistant that online business manager has a tendency to get really be much more committed to the big picture. They're in this as a business for themselves..

"Myself Accountable I guess to not skip over that cleaning the toilet time block because then that's going to completely mess up the rest of my. Ideal deck. So this is going to tap back in a little bit to the peak productivity times in really identifying is there a certain task that if you put it at the end of the day when your energy is low, you're much more likely to procrastinate or or leave it off. There's this concept the really really famous concept in productivity called eat that frog and the idea behind that is you do the tough thing first thing in the morning. So sometimes, we have to schedule those tasks. Of Our peak productivity time because that's which is no that if if this is something, I really hate to do the later in the day against the much more likely I am to procrastinate doing it but if I for sure. If I, put it right at the beginning my day I'm GonNa, get it done. Check it off and. Feel accomplished and it sets me up for success for the rest of the day. So that's one piece of it. You can really look at that concept of eat that frog and. 'cause you know you don't WanNa eat a frog. So if you eat it first thing in the morning, then you're done so Make a smoothie out of their. Just. Greed smoothie. Only video podcast and they could have seen my face when you eat the FROG, right? All right. And then the other idea behind it is creative reward system for yourself. So if you know that this is a task that you're going to procrastinate you tend to put off think of something that you absolutely love to do and position it right after task. So that might be I don't get to take a break until I have done this and so it's a reward is you know what I love to have a piece of chocolate in the late afternoon. So just before I do that chocolate I'm going to get this one task off my list. And if it's really something that you're struggling with find an accountability partner the you can call up and say it's done I. got that off my. Have somebody at your back that you know is going to be able to hold you accountable to getting those nasty things done. That is an amazing tip for sure. And thank you for being my accountability partner by the way. Oh you're so local I like to call you the celebration sister instead by. That works to. Some of this, just the whole idea of being accountable to somebody else who feels a little bit too much like a J. O. B. and so I. Mention. Sister Right again, rather than you have to come up with another term, but it's just knowing yourself right I know that accountability partner is something that I wanted to avoid but I do have a celebration sister today's. Cheers to that. Oh, my gosh. Well, if you love this conversation as much as I did and you got as much out of this, I did We would love if you take a screen shot of the episode insurance on your favorite social media heck shared on every social media.

"And wanting to adhere to that as much as possible but then still allowing myself the freedom to be that free spirit and go with the flow. That's great. I can totally accept that. What do we do when it's not us? It's we're not the ones that are initiating that. Derail you get a call in. Your daughter needs you to come bring groceries or your has a flat tyre or what about those times when it isn't a that's initiating that. Squirrel moment. Yet, and that's another great question at another big challenge that you're not alone on There's a couple of things again, the we can address here. One is to really reflect on the boundaries is this US feeling guilty if we can't bail somebody out is this US feeling that? I. Am worth less if I don't drop everything that's important to me to go help this person. Is this a real emergency or is it just my own personal? I need to go do this. So when you can really dig deep into that question, you can you can solve a lot of the issues because a lot of those things are going to be. Really, more about you personally feeling guilty if you don't go help somebody if it's your daughter needing groceries. Is there an opportunity to say I can get groceries for you at five o'clock tonight when my day is wrapped up. I can't do it right now. On the other hand if you're heavy is has a flat tire and you don't happen have AAA or any other way to help him out then you may need to drop things and go take care of that. But that's why we have that. Free Day available at the end of the week to address the stuff that didn't get taken care of because of these random times sucks that we get into. For reasons that we can't fix. Right. That makes total sense and I did find that because I do have multiple clients might email is constantly coming in from different directions with people who have different types of needs. And I used to be very sucked into answering that person in that moment. So one benefit that I found by designing this ideal day was the permission to say, Oh, sally needs something but Sally's tomorrow at eleven in. So that gave me that piece that I was GonNa take care of Sally, but it wasn't in this very moment. So that was definitely a benefit for me knowing that okay. This time is allotted to this client or task or job role. and not feeling that instant need to answer right away. And that right, there is one of the huge powers of the system. If you know that there is time slotted on your calendar for later in the day or tomorrow or the rest of the week, then it's less tempting to address certain things come up in that moment You know one of the big things that we see is is that temptation to go be. Sucked into social media and kind of end up down that rabbit hole. But if you've already scheduled on your calendar to work on social media for half an hour at the end of the day, then then it's less tempting to go check who sent me a message on social media. You can turn off those notifications and lend me preached you about turning off notifications if..

"So. I may get into a project and go. Oh Wow I just had a great idea for that and Squirrel I'm off to that project. I'm not distracted by something unproductive distracted by something that is flowing naturally in that moment ends up to live in creative space Stop the the water flow of one to manage that timeframe. So I've got some insider little sneaky hacks to this whole process that I build in. Working with a client on this kind of thing, and these are called free time days or extra days or you know you can call them whatever you want. Some tips starts out as a half day sometimes has to take a full day. Once a week I usually book these on Fridays and these are my time slots were I. Don't have anything specific scheduled on my calendar. And what that allows is. If I get distracted if I'm like really inspired I the first thing I do is I try to take note of that and write it down and say ongoing to work on this project later. Because, there are so many times were US creatives are going to get a brilliant idea and we're going to. Take off and work on that brilliant idea get halfway through it and then be like. I'm not really all that interested in it anymore. I've laughing because. If you know how many times I started cleaning out a closet. And by the end of the day, my entire house is in disarray and I don't know where I started at the beginning of that day because one thing led to another idea that led to another idea and pretty soon, I've unpacked every closet and I don't really know why.

But but we don't live in that bubble, and so we do have other demands for our times other things that factor in but one of the biggest things factors in our inability to adequately determine how much time we need for a specific task. So. That's one of the number one barriers. We might think, Oh, I'm going to sit down and do accounting and I'm going to give myself and our jewelry accounting, and then you get in there and you realize. Oh my gosh, not only do I have to you know balance a checkbook, but I also have to go back and file the taxes for last month that I have to you know pay off the credit card, which means I have to reconcile the credit card and I have to do this I have to do that, and then all of a sudden that our love process that you thought it was gonNA take turns out to be ninety minutes in your in your behind the eight ball from the moment you start that process right and now I'm into my next pretty colored block, and now I'm stressing myself out because I'm thirty minutes behind. and. So yeah, that's when it takes over for me stress wise than I think why is this benefiting me like? In this moment I'm more stressed than I was before I had pretty blocks on my calendar. And so this is a lot about practice in mindset. So the practice piece is. Really better understanding how much time? For, certain tasks. So you may not realize that every time you get into doing the accounting, it's going to take you ninety minutes it as much as you wish, you could only spend an hour on it. You discover after practicing this activity over a period of time that really takes ninety minutes and you have to honor that ninety minutes. The. Other pieces being that mindset piece being willing to say I got to the hour I didn't complete everything on the West. Therefore I'm going to add another day later on in the week to accomplish the rest of those things that I didn't finish today. So being willing to say a not complete and that's okay I know this is. For, those of us that struggle with perfectionism saying that we're not completed something is like a deal breaker right there and it's it's I. Say. I feel myself hemorrhaging perfectionism. So you're telling me to just Kinda let it go. Let it go. Let it go. Okay wait a promise not to sing anymore. Well, I'll try not to sing anymore..

"Business Station, also, the timing capacitors that you have invest. So for those of the coaches that are just starting with Virgil events and need to grow. I would really advise to start with one they summons or series of one summits I. Think a series is a really great way to go. There isn't as of it out there yet. So It's a great. Time to step into it, and the series of one-day summits is a great way for you to create a continuum of a certain topic to make sure that your audience comes back to you. It's not a stressful as a full on summit, which of course great. But they are in heavy big events to carry. So I'm gonNA pause there just because So this this term summit I think for a lot of. My clients virtually team and maybe out there in the coaching world, you know we we're familiar with like masterclasses or webinars or You know things were kind of standing You know we are the experts standing in front of the camera and being the expert presenting all the information, how how was summit different from that? In the summit, you give the stage others and that's the power of it. You are together with other experts without influencers. Are Seen As A. And expert yourself because firstly, you're putting together this amazing and huge events. Secondly, of course, you'll be one of the presenters. One of the experts people will see us the experts. But you also are together in a row with other influences in. Like a son that worms everything around it, the influence is will kind of shine on you and give their glamour to you as well and that's very important to consider, and in my opinion we're moving now into the era of collaboration because you can't stand there alone and you need other people to help you to lift you up and you're lifting other people's up and summit is fantastic. Opportunity endured underestimate those connections with other speakers. Do not see them as competition as complementing in your business, and it's so important because if you leverage those relationships if you nurture them, it's GonNa give you so many benefits in future I've seen it so many times that really great relationships between the host and the speaker have taken the businesses off the host, even further upwards because they become affiliates of each other they invite. Each other to podcast the summer start events and it so so much more powerful. So really need to leverage this talk of events yet it's really an opportunity to kind of build an inner circle that you can go to and what I think of when I hear that you know I'm an avid podcast listener and if you listen to a core set of podcasts whether it's amy. Porterfield or Tim Ferriss or you know some of these other big names and you start hearing the same set of guests on those podcasts over and over again and you're like, oh, they all know each other and they're all tapping into one another's audiences, and then you start seeing Amy Porterfield promoting Michael Hyatt's stuff and and you know and it just kind of this big inner. Circle..

"So that's a definitely a personalized plan depending on. What your individual taxes look like what your business income is GonNa be in there are few other factors to consider so. As an estimate, I would say you know even if you're doing your own bookkeeping. From the very beginning, it's important to have an accountant that's going to help you with these tax issues because filing taxes for business is bearing very, very different than filing taxes for your personal. Responsibilities and so yeah working with an accountant, they can help you make those determinations. Doing. The balancing in the reconciling and you know paying attention to all of those things on your own I am a firm believer in. That an account is just absolutely not an option. You cannot out not outsource that particular task don't do it yourself. That's what I'm trying to say. I couldn't agree more. That is so true. Find someone from the very beginning who you get along. With thing you trust their knowledge and somewhat like when I get along with someone new can communicate with because if you can't communicate well with your account, it's GonNa be over your head or they're not gonNA. Maybe they just don't understand your business model or they don't nation that you know. So finding accountant who you communicate well with in his knowledgeable and that way you just have them for when you have those questions, you can still do this basic bookkeeping by yourself. But, you have their contact info for when something like this comes up in you need their help out for sure. I love the fact that you mentioned. You know that they that they meet down to what it is it your specialty is because. you know your personal accountant that does your personal taxes may not be qualified to do business taxes. They might not know what all of the rules in in different kinds of things are n if you outsourcing, you have clients or if you have an AIRBNB, all of these different issues have different legal you know codes and things like that..

"That. So this is like goes beyond you looking at Your Business, and this goes into more following the rules of your. Like legal roles of Your Business, yeah what the government wants yes. Got It. Back. To let I, just want to backtrack estimated tax teams because I know that's kind of a new thing for some entrepreneurs As an entrepreneur like Nicoli mentioned earlier, you're not getting a W. Two you're paying yourself for your profits. And when you get a W, you have bike taxes withheld you have social security, Medicare taxes you have withholdings for your income tax as an entrepreneur that's not happening anymore in. So you have to be making those estimated tax payments on a quarterly basis that's just saying a here's my withholding for what I've earned so far I. Recommend you're just starting out your business you meet with an accountant to determine what that percentage is of your withholding. Typically Twenty five percent is a pretty fair estimate next twenty percent because. Fifteen percent is the vicha social security Medicare, and then another ten percent of your income tax withholding. But. That is just an estimate. So that's a definitely a personalized plan depending on. What your individual taxes look like what your business income is GonNa be.

"About. Sometimes you just have to take that big bite and go for it so that you can grow right. Yeah, there's some there's always that big question it's. You know it's kind of the big leap. It's when do you make that decision to invest in something that you know upfront is GonNa, cost you more money. But you also know that it's going to help you recoup those costs much faster and social media's definitely one of them. You know we have tools like smarter Q. and a buffer and a Gore pulse in all kinds of other ones that allow you to. Automate a certain aspect of your of your. Social media so that you can come take that piece off your plate and focus on the parts of the social media that you have to spend time on, which is the relationship building so That it can't be automated, you got to humanize that exactly I mean. I love discovering new tools that make my life easier. You know for me the big eye opener was I could tell my inbox swear to send my emails so that I could focus on each particular folder based on what was time blocked me for that day. So I think it also depends on you to like there's some people that that would not be of any benefit to them whatsoever, and they would forget about emails and that so. Knowing what tools you need to be more productive to I think should be a factor in your considerations sprayed yet. Absolutely. It's one of those things where you you know you, it goes back to the what the the question what can I take off my plate right now and and that question. Even before we decide whether this is something we want to automate delegate. We need to know whether this is something that we should be taking off of our plate. So. Yeah. That's that's a great place to start. An automation is a great tool when it makes sense It's just a matter of doing the evaluation in knowing that sometimes, it's not rights. And Times it means taking that big leap in and diving.

"So this is kind of the detail that goes into some of these automations if your head is spinning now, just imagine one more kind of thing that gets added to your plate. When, in fact, it may have been more simple for this one survey. If it was US may be a list of under one hundred people to have the online business manager. Following up with those emails in triggering something manually. So that the technology didn't have to break down and we didn't have to create such. A high level kind of thing. Right and having been an online manager who has set up some of those automations. The detail and the forethought in your thinking process is is definitely something that requires some concentration in some know how you have to know how one is going to communicate with an other and then and then predict what questions should be asked at that moment to set up the next automation in predicting all of those if then statements there's. To to some degree, a computer programming. To that. So if I'm if I go down that route and I say, yes, this is definitely what I want. To also figure out how long is it GonNa take me to recoup that investment in should I? Should I? Just delegate for a period of time. Is there a benchmark cutoff where I can say okay at this point in time I, want to delegate I mean I'm going to automate this but for now. Right, and that's one of those questions you can use to determine. That is how much would you pay somebody to do those things? How much would you pay somebody to send out those emails to manually evaluate the information to determine which email needs to be sent out or which next step? which then? Action needs to be taken. So when you can kinda calculate, how much would I pay somebody to do this and how? Over the long haul you kind of begin to look at that. That number you can evaluate in this. My husband's really good at doing this kind of stuff me not so much choice told him to go do it for me. But it's basically taking this..

If somebody could do this in the future I just had this great idea about a Freebie I certainly can't make this today but I would like to create one Sunday start capturing those ideas and put them in a document put them in an area in your project management tool so that when you hire your Opium or your va right? You'RE GONNA have recurring tasks like on a regular basis but then you have the this other pile of Nice to have projects that they can also start picking away from. So there's a lot you can do in the early stages long before you actually hire your team to make it really efficient and effective when you do hire You and I think it's great that you just mentioned that because especially now that a lot of businesses are going through Cova Vid, if you're in that position where maybe certain areas of areas of Your Business or scaling back but you still WanNa be building in growing and being out there in the world, you can use your team to kind of tap into some of those tabled ideas. and.

I've given her several projects that I'm like, yeah. We might get to those later in twenty twenty, but then Kovic hit and it's like, okay well, we've had pit a little bit certain things change certain clients changed now is a great time to really move those up to the front burner and off of that burner and take action on them.

Goes, hand in hand in order for an ob 'em to be released successful or an OPS director or whatever you WANNA call that role more than that management piece they need somebody who's really good with the implementation. Right. So how do you know when you're ready when you get to a certain revenue level win you find that you're spending way more time doing all the things in your business instead of doing the stuff that used to light you up and spending time doing the things that you did in the beginning when you started this business to begin with. So when you're spending more time running your business than being. The face of your business or being in Arizona of genius than it's absolutely time and I always tell people hire before you're ready because you will be really. Grateful but you know there's a lot to that like how do I know when I'm ready? So we'll dig into that I'm sure as we go along here but. You know when you start hitting that I, I mentioned revenue number. So when you're hitting that one hundred and fifty, thousand dollar a year mark in revenue, it's time to really start thinking about outsourcing to some debris whether or not you start with a virtual assistant or you start with somebody who is managing your website, your inbox like very specific pieces of it, and then the obm really comes in when when you're starting to work upwards of that revenue number but that's not a hard and fast rule by any means I, just like to put something out there for for consideration. You know I often tell our clients you when I'm I talking to them and they asked that question. A lot of times. They'll say if you're great at managing people and you know exactly what needs to be done in how it needs to be done then you might do well with the virtual assistant, but if you're in that Oh. I'm so overwhelmed and lost, and I don't even know where to start mode than it might be best to start with that online business manager because she is going to help you dig out of the weeds and really get the systems, strategies and tools of lace. What do you think? Absolutely, and I think that that is an excellent way to put it. You first of all, ask yourself do I like managing people if it's a hell no. Then you're going to go straight for the OB and they will help you get the virtual assistant or whatever. The next team member is necessary to keep your business flowing. If you are good at that like in my case, right that was my history I was really good at managing people so. As grew my team like I started with a virtual assistant. Now I have a virtual assistant, an IBM I have a marketing director I, have all the things but I was able to start because I knew how to manage that if that's overwhelming to you that yeah..

His name as business manager and Susanna four women who were cited as rolling Jesus and pretty much what they said was there were many others who were contributing from their own resources to support Jesus and his disciples.

"Good Morning. Welcome to marketing over coffee. I'm John Wall today. Our guest is Mark Irvine. He's the director of strategic partnerships. At Word Stream. GonNa talk to us about what's going on in the advertising space and we are going to focus a lot on cove nineteen in what's going on. He's done a bunch of research on how this has affected searches. And what's going on with all the ad networks so we're excited to have him with us here today. Mark thanks for joining US John. Thanks for having me. This really exciting. Let's take a step back. Talk to us about Word Stream. What do you do and how did you get there? So Word Stream is an online advertising software that agencies and advertisers alike use to manage their advertising across Google search display Microsoft Bing facebook and instagram and so effectively. A lot of what people do online is a lot of repetitive tasks. In terms of how you go about managing ad campaigns what we do is we try to supply. Yeah that's really the big thing for me when finding out about you guys and talking about what you do is just that as a marketing department gets bigger. You reach that point where you've reached the first milestone where you have one person that you're just kinda like okay you become the ads guru and they're the ones that are doing the testing and learning what's working and not working but then they hit a point where they have to roll them across all the different networks the different channels and it reaches this point where it's completely unmanageable you know. They're spending like an hour of each day in each of the tools and you guys are an alternative to that. Did you see a specific point when somebody finally just cries uncle and comes to talk to you? Is there any specific place where you tend to see people give you a call? Yeah you know. It's really interesting. Because a lot of the businesses we primarily work small businesses and a lot of the people who are working with. They're not just in charge of that one ad campaign but they're also doing email and they're also doing seo and quite frankly a lot of these small businesses they're oftentimes the owner or someone who's out in the field at the same moment in time what you can't do as you operate business what. I've learned I can't do effectively. I can't manage. People manage business manager ad campaigns and do a task all at the same time. If you're just learning paid search or if you're just learning online advertising we specifically focus on okay. Here are the seven things that you need you every single week to be successful on Google Bing facebook and as you go about adding to that yes of course google and being or Google and facebook. They all share similar concepts online. But how you go about making sure. That your touching all of your advertising equally in effectively is a learned task. Yeah I do love that idea of. It's not just. It's not a system for experts where it's a power tool that someone would go in and do all of this kind of stuff but it's really an expert system in that it's reaching out proactively using okay. Here's the things you gotta get wrapped up this week if you want this to work and and it kind of puts people on the right track. That's interesting to me though that it does go all the way down to kind of smaller businesses and people who that's not their whole job so I actually Kinda come in a lot earlier in the cycle that I thought was the case. Are there any guidelines as far as spend or like how much of the marketing mix is coming from advertising? Are there any stats there? As far as when somebody can reach this point you know we often see. We do have people who've never advertised before we have agencies who are just beginning to offer paid search to their Seo clients or what have you. They're just beginning to get in the paid search space. Broadly across the board. When I talk about thirty thousand accounts we see an average spend of about a thousand dollars a month so it's still relatively small across all of their networks but beyond that we take small businesses and we also have some some larger guys as well who use the platform for for time management just for honesty and credibility. It's one of those things that paid searches so simple to get started at so simple to feel like you know what you're doing and in that same process just dangerous enough to be bad at one of my favorite hobbies to do a google search for hotels and in your local city and then go and do the same search on bing and you'll see like expedia or priceline or these large brands off have very different ads across those two networks oftentimes inaccurate ads between the two. So it's very easy to have a large budget and still be unsuccessful on a network. Yeah Yeah I can understand that you are kind of all over the place and it's interesting to me to that it's great. That is all the way down at that thousand dollar a month price point. Because that's definitely doable for for small businesses. Especially if they're able to get a return it only a thousand dollars then. Yeah it seems like you WanNa get up and running as quickly as you can and get to the point where you're not worried about the logistics. But you're actually you know testing ads and getting some useful tweaking exactly. Logistics isn't the thing that gets anyone who has a bed in the morning. So whatever you can do to make sure that you're going in and making changes that are effective in your ad copy rather than just pressing a series of buttons and Google ads or facebook. How can you go about making change? That's GonNa Affect Your Roi. Okay now another interesting thing with your background that I wanted to touch upon love to hear about just kind of how you got to where you are but a big part of it. Is You know your data scientist for a number of years. So you have the background that that we love to talk about people kind of getting in playing with the number so tell us a bit more about your role as data scientists and how you got over there. Yeah it's really interesting. I at ridgely had no interest in marketing when I first started my career. I actually majored in math because my mother told me that. If you'd be willing to do people's math you'll always have a job. And so lo and behold I found my holden in marketing a world where traditionally people were not mathematically your data and I joined word stream about seven years ago and at the time word stream had a still a whole lot of thousands of individual clients. We had a lot of data. But what were we doing with? That data was unique to the individual account. My role as it is. Scientists was really investigating not just the role with an individual accounts. But what was going on across thousands of accounts win at change happened when the Google Surp- changed when new ad copy was tested. When they google start running out with new tests or started watching new ad formats. There are changes that people see in terms of the numbers and anecdotally. Everyone has some sense of what's going on their own account but what's going on at large. We suddenly became the largest data repository outside of Google to begin to run those numbers so I spent six seven years at word stream really just running the numbers under saying the trends in terms of what made someone successful with their online advertising our own client set and as a had all that data as I understood all of that started working closely with the individual ad networks with our partners at Google with partners Microsoft with their partners that facebook. And so now. I'm having Lengthy conversations about the changes that they're having and how I think it's going to impact our SNB's sweet

Police have recorded 120,000 cases of 'non-crime' hate incidents

"I found this story on line and I think you'll appreciate it this is from the Daily Mail thank you really appreciate free speech here in the United States so over in the US the UK or is this Ireland let me double check so police have recorded almost a hundred and twenty thousand quote non crime hate incidents and quote was revealed today a judge slammed what they call the Gestapo police for cuisine a business managers work over his quote transphobic tweets and so these instances apparently are not crimes but they still want the government to investigate it we give you a couple of examples it's not just overseas where this is happening in some places like the UK it's all this is in South Wales it also happens in Canada more recently there was a book that came out written by a man he's the guy that has rebel media have assigned to signed I can member's name but he came out with a book very critical of prime missed print is not prime minister Justin Trudeau doll in the since they are going through the elections and they were going through the elections coming out with a book critical of the prime minister the he apparently passed that over to the police in the investigating agencies in Canada say about you better go check this out check out this guy's writing critical things about the prime minister so he was called in and questioned by a this government agency about the motivations of why you'd write a book critical of the prime minister during an election could you imagine he by the way brought in a secret video recording and re rod have been he's been over the last month releasing these things on you tube so you can see is major concern with that you can actually go check that out too but let's go back over to the UK it's under the hate crime operational guidelines adopted but six years ago in two thousand fourteen says forces must record any actions deemed to be motivated by an element of hate such as racism or trans gender phobic comments even if there is no evidence to prove them so if you're over there and someone read something that they believe is offensive and you know when we're here in the United States if you're on the left everything's offensive to you if you disagree with that I mean it's could you imagine here in the United States if there is the same sort of regulation where the police have to log everyone of your complaints because you're offended by something that someone else said just think of how wasteful that time would be when we have so many other problems going on so a hundred and twenty thousand nine crime he'd incidents have been recorded so far figures obtained by the telegraph South Wales police were found to have logged the highest number of hate incidences at thirteen thousand eight hundred and fifty six Metropolitan Police nine thousand over that same period may say this one person that they've been using as example Mister Miller at hearing Miller former police officer one of court victory against the police after they forced investigated him for his quote transphobic tweets and quote so it look into something you put on Twitter this is Twitter of all places hands do you know what he said that was seen to be transphobic no I don't want to read the line but I think you can read between the lines when I say this so it's a it's a poem that he wrote in there's one line in the poem that they found object bowl your you know female term for their genitalia okay but I guess not wrong for me to say it's like the biological term but I just feel weird saying it out loud your blank goes no where that said so because he used the term in its specific free female biologically they saw that as transphobic it was it was a not directed towards a person like he was trying to you know make fun of or whatever it was it was in a poem in a way that it was not specifically tweeted out someone or anything like that that was reported the police showed up at at his work they questioned him why are you so transphobic in front of his coworkers all these things they try to make an example of him try to shame him for tweeting this out you think the police have any reason why that is looked at as a threat other then there's just people that don't like get and they feel like the place has to intervene when they're offended by what someone else uses in speech so the fifty four year old Mr Miller said that he was sold there's thirty messages in the past that he's even re tweeted be in what they call a hate incident they look at that as a hate incident the judge they describe the police's actions as quote substantial chilling effect when it comes to free speech announcing that the court's decision the tweets were quote lawful in the affected the police showing up and Mister Miller's work place because of his political opinions must not be under estimated so that needs to be called out for as wrong as it is he said that the police overstep the line by visiting Mr Miller does work place and then the statements in retaliation to possibly persecute him based on what he said on Twitter judge Knowles rejected a wider challenge for the lawfulness of the hate incident guidelines ruling that it serves legitimate purposes in its not disproportionate to log them okay so I guess the judge hasn't swatted down the ability for the government to continue to keep track on the all for the things that you may be tweeting out there but them showing up at your doorstep in question you because of it is the part that goes too far I would even say that here in the United States if we have the police in St Louis dedicating their limited time and resources off the street but they're sitting in front of a computer in trying to pay attention to people that are in the St Louis region in reading every single tweet that goes by and then formally putting paper work together to log the things that may be seemed objectionable based on by the way the eye of the beholder not if it's actually objectionable or not or not that if it's something dangerous or not but you now keep in mind this is I the beholder south if you continue to move in a very social agenda and everything's offensive and you can't do this you can't do that in free speech is only second to whatever someone else's feelings are on the matter then you're going to find that the police are just gonna overstep the bounds over and over and it will become the normal in free speech has been attacked for a long time we've seen places where historically free speech has been celebrated but in today's world there's even places that have to put together safe spaces because it may be just a terrible idea that someone hears something that they would find offensive in dust need another governing agency to step in an object for them it's it's pretty sad in college campuses were looking at you that seems to be one of the places that used to have this sense that hate freedom of discussion being able to talk to other people about their ideas learn about what other people's believe what other people's believe and then if you do object being able to challenge the other people on their ideas although that's cut out now would sit at least in the UK let's just call the police and let them take care of it because he that person said something that offends me no it wasn't directed towards anyone it was just something that is in general offensive I'm in the judgment the judge emphasize I'm not concerned with the merits of the trans gender debate the issues are obviously complex is as I have observed during the hearing the legal status in the rights this is not for the courts and we'll see how that goes so good that they fought back on this one U. K. they have much different standards when it comes to freedom of speech were very lucky here in the United States to have that constitutional protection given by god so not to be given away free Lee by the government as they see fit to be abused and trust me they would abuse it in half and they try if you would allow them to don't you dare der der der ever give up your constitutional

Sante Kimes: Mother, Murderer, and Criminal Mastermind

"Is is the story of the original helicopter mother sean take times and her son kenny holy shit i'm about to tell you a story that i got an jay did the research urge for me i got sources from vanity fair article from two thousand by a writer named susanna andrews called sean times mother murderer and criminal masterminds as well as wikipedia murder pedia and sean taes LA times obituary i also last night watched this made for TV movie like mother like son the a strange story of sean kennedy times it's on youtube it's so good at starring mary tyler moore sean times she's amazing she play they like the quintessential like this is the type of person we're talking about like the quintessential mary tyler moore she like out of the box she's out of the box this is not the mary the MTA AMU thought you know she's a she's a schemer and con artist and a weirdly sexual with everybody and it's very uncomfortable to watch our hero mary tyler moore be the key such a villain expressed jean stapleton is in it who if you if you aren't familiar is a great actress she was is it all in the family i stephen yes that's how she's very well know but she is a an amazing actress when you when you see her in another part you're like oh my god she's so good very different and then and gabriel olds plays kenny times and i think he is from a soap opera but he is great so anyway and that made for TV movie was based on the book the mother the sun and the socialite socialite by adrian hill so there's lots of things if the story interests you get down and dirty details in lots of ways so let me let me get into it we will start with a woman irene silverman so irene she's a retired ballerina she was in the new york city ballet accompany member but she was also an elite socialite and she lived with her husband multimillionaire mortgage broker sam silverman in an extravagant seven million dollar townhouse on east sixty fifth street in manhattan seven million seven million in the seventies oh my god yeah and so so she is an extrovert she throws parties all the time she's she's a true social fun yeah right having money she's always entertaining guests has tons of friends canopies everywhere pays can pay an canopy it's even that can the pay can i pay existence so when her husband sam passes away in one thousand nine hundred eighty irene decides that she's going to take their humongous townhouse and and turn it into like an apartment building into basically luxury apartments so on average the rents of these individual apartments go for about six thousand dollars hours a month which in today's money would be seventeen thousand five hundred dollars or an apartment for an apartment in on east sixty sixty fifth street manhattan all right write nana's so her tenants are very impressive and include such luminaries luminaries as the marquis and marchioness of northampton you know i'm reading a phonetic spelling of both of those martian of north hampton danton marcia marcia s north hampton not a martian take me to your leader day-lewis and chaka khan i would together together we don't start gossip but yes they were deeply in love with those with that cast list i'd i pay up to eighteen thousand dollars a month to live there he managed to get a camera installed so i can watch your go downstairs to get your mail and their chaka khan like hey girl what's up you know like thank you wanna go out partying let's party so okay we're going to skip ahead about twenty years after she's established he's beautiful luxury apartments now irene is eighty two years sold on june fourteenth nineteen ninety eight a young businessman from palm beach named manny garren arrives at irene's home asking if he can rent one of his apartments he is traditionally good looking like lou diamond phillips special something you know everybody has different tastes we talk talk about people being good looking at beautiful time but who knows what people like you don't get a fucking say in it that's right traditionally good-looking means if someone drew a picture that's what a good looking person look like right look hugh grant traditionally good luck traditionally good-looking right but there's lots of people who are good looking dapper eh anyhow self esteem he's good looking traditionally well-spoken very friendly very charming i'm very smooth he tells iran he was referred by a mutual friend she recognizes the name oh you know it's all great or the marchioness from it's a yeah it's the marchioness us or the marquess unfortunately manny doesn't have any ID on him can't remember his social security number and the only he doesn't have any other references but he promises he's going to get them to irene the next day and then he gives her six grand in cash for his first month's rent so ordinarily irene there's actually very careful about stuff like this but because they have mutual friend and because he's paying in cash and probably because he's traditionally good-looking incredibly charming she allows him to move in the day of day of fact that okay everyone will and also well ninety eight early days of the internet yeah that's ten and eighty two year old woman wouldn't real absolutely it was all there at our fingertips okay so over the course of the next three weeks manny goes from being a charming suave a businessman type to a creepy weirdo he never turns over the proper ID or references he will not allow irene's maids into the unit to clean which goes along with your six thousand dollar rent ready yeah kind of like hotel he always hides his face from the security camera in irene's lobby show very acorn shell and he always has strange guests in his apartment and including an older woman who seems to be there all the time john chaka khan shocker gone she would shock would never go down she knows creeps when she sees him right now in the mary tyler moore movie that i watched watched she tells when the maid comes she tells her that she is manny's assistant and is very rude to the man so she doesn't make any friends so so basically after the first week irene decide she's gonna ask manny to leave she's like you had your you had your month enough of this he flatly refuses flabby creepy can you imagine that traditionally handsome i am flatly refusing something then you're just like well i guess this is the new reality yeah because the the hawk doesn't want to right well here's what irene does 'cause she didn't take any shit she cuts off his phone line thinking that's going to get him out of there and she begins eviction shen proceedings so she's immediately kicking yourself for being nice yeah which is what happened always a mistake so on the evening of saturday july fourth nineteen ninety eight i arena has friends over 'cause it's fourth of july and they also have noticed manny's strange behavior she irene explains the whole situation and her friends are very concerned and they say you know like do you need help what he wants to do she says that she can handle it they know she's tough as his nails so you know everybody feels okay about it the next morning july fifth nineteen ninety eight irene asks one of her maids if she would run some errands for her and when the made gets back from running those errands she can't find irena anywhere in the house from the made immediately contact irene's business manager who then decides to contact like the police and when the police searched the home they don't find any signs of disturbance there's no blood inside the struggled indicate that there was violence or or an incident of any kind so they start questioning irene's friends and the tenants but manny garin is nowhere to be found and when they run a name check on on that one new mysterious tenant the name manny garin is fake so suddenly the mystery tenant is now possible suspect in iran's disappearance it just so happens that on that same night july fifth a mother and son by the name of sean taylor and kenneth times are arrested in front of the manhattan hilton holton for stealing a lincoln towncar from a dealership in cedar city utah wow yes they finally tracked them down and they get arrested so when a detective who was on the scene for the silverman case sees the story of the crimes arrest on the news he sees kenneth and says that looks looks exactly like the description of manny garin and handsome hey that guy's traditionally handsome in a way that bores me but that but then i also immediately immediately trust for reasons i can't explain so he puts it together that they are one in the same person so on july seventh nineteen ninety eight the NYPD have shontayne kenneth times properly identified and in custody and that's when they discovered that the mother and son are being tracked by the FBI as suspects for a slew of crimes across across the nation including arson fraud and murder okay so now we'll go back we'll talk a little bit about sean times she was born sandra louise sing in oklahoma city on july twenty fourth nineteen thirty four she grows up in nevada with her parents mary van horn and mahendra promising and there's almost nothing known about her childhood factually they believe that her birth certificate was forged forged so her exact origins and even date of birth are they're not sure creepy about it and the funny thing is is mary tyler moore playing sean take himes all she talks about how much she hates getting older and aging it's it's pretty funny so it would make sense that the first thing she does erase her birth sir
