Anywhere between nine and ten, usually she goes down at and that's where I usually am able to get a good chunk of work done for a couple of hours whether have customers in or I'm doing work on my computer. So yes, she is fantastic a taking early nap and I really take advantage of that. Afterwards it's really hit or miss whether she's able to play in her little play yard independently, which is not for log or I throw or on my back, which is a new thing I've been doing and we're her or. I have in my lap and I try to take with her relapse. So tell us about warm and fuzzy yarn like why where did the idea for this business come to be and I assume that you must have been the crafty sister growing up if this? Maybe, take take our listeners through the journey of like how you made the choice with your career. Take really big and kind of risky stuff and like kind of with that thought process was like. And just kind of the bravery while I mean it's hard to to your own horn, but it was a very brave stop so. Tau Tell a little bit about that yet. So I had been working at a corporate job before for eight years, and now it's hard to believe that have actually been at the store now longer than the CIA which is amazing. But I was doing business eggs of doing. So a spreadsheet work during a computer all day long. Part of me liked what I was doing another part like hated just corporate of aspect of edge and I was just I felt like I hit a wall and just was brainstorming things to do and I kept coming back to yarn because that was always something like after work I remember driving to a yarn store in picking up yard and it was it was the highlight of my day and join know what exactly when it came into my head. I took a couple business trips down to Arlington, and nearby in Alexandria is a wonderful store. Named Fiber Space and they had just tons and tons of hand yard and each time I went. I, couple of hundred dollars on yard, which is pretty easy to do and I remember just feeling that that type of really was not available in the area or very, very limited. So I thought about that in at some point, I just. Wondered about how feasible it would be so I took a business class at night after work and handed amazing adviser helped me write a business plan feasibility studies in talked a lot. My friends were niggers and shares actually I was more of a crocheter when I started I got obsessed into knitting, which is more popular. Now, most of my customers and little by little, it somehow didn't seem impossible I needed to get my elsie license I needed to get. The finest space in have fire check, and it was just one thing after another and about a year after I started researching was opening my doors. and. So you sell. Tell us mean for those of us who are not yarn connoisseurs the hand I'd yarn is like the high end of the market right for people who are very particular about their sort of knitting. Yeah I mean there's hand died and there's also just a small scale production so. Pretty much all of my suppliers they're either one or two percents show or it's one of my brands that I love everything is sourced in a us from the actual wool the sheep event, it's died and a spun everything is done in the Uso just a lot of very very small-scale partners and it just makes it special. That's kind of exciting that the sheep are American citizens to. Sorry go. Have, some brands that come from like international destinations. So yeah, absolutely. Actually we have a lot and that's been a worry now thankfully supplies been okay during this, but a lot comes from Ireland Germany England. Had Oliver but still the production the dying is by usually just a handful of people it's not a large scale production. That's her door is beautiful by the way. I assume that a big part of this pre covid, of course, there's also that you are a destination then for people to come in and did you have like knitting circles going on quite a bit at three groups? So we can just that knitting couch. ICONIC. Yeah, it was. It was a really nice place and a lot of my friends. Would come and they would. Just, they would gather and make new friends and then you know those friendships would still they would meet outside of the store as well. So I feel like I brought people together. I miss. Very much. Yeah. Yeah how did you wind up then pivoting the pandemic to? I mean kids you're still open. which is exciting. You have not gone out of business so. New Pivot without. So I still rather lucky. In the fact that Ed my store was already set up online I had been getting orders before not a large amount, but it percentage I already set up probably a little bit because of my analytic background, just all of my yards in the system so that I had pictures of every single yarn in the store.

The Shade Room: Pros & Cons

"In a world filled with Daesh ously bountiful boss of headlines and videos that screen world saw the shave room has taken instagram by storm in two thousand fourteen Joachim. Wanda start at the shade room after realizing she can use her love for celebrity gossip to practice her writing. But after hating ten thousand followers you want to realize she was on something. Today, the Shade Room has over twenty million followers on instagram and features regular commentary from celebrities like the descent Nicki. menaj and Ti that last part is what makes the Shade Room truly unique outside of twitter it's pretty rare for celebrities and everyday people to have so many interactions with those blurred lines are also what makes the Shade Room? So controversial whether it's making Ziya, Wade owner of harmful comments or the legal back and forth with Cardi B. When it comes to boundaries, things can get ugly. So today we brought on journalist and author George. M Johnson to help us figure out if the Shane Room is good or bad for the culture. Thank you me. I'm excited. You know the showroom has built an empire. Moving celebrity gossip here's what's your take on the importance of celebrity gossip. Gossip. It kind of is what keeps your career going on social media wise. As media has shifted from red carpets to kind of step of house, you can kind of create your own `Paparazzi. Kylie Jenner. Day. The. Whole Light Brown skinned girl only. Even though it was big, it kept her name out there viability for twenty hours on. Sale somewhere absolutely down, I think that celebrity gossip in general is fun I. Think it just gives me something to think about. Everyday life especially, these days I'm like recently has gotten dark I will say. The thing that? Has To be say. For the most part, it can be fun. I think that there is a difference between having good fun and that exposing like the more vulnerable aspects of somebody's life four laps, all that being said, what's actually start our. Conversation today with the pros. So you our guest you welcome to start off with the pros at Oh i. Froze are that the platform very very large and When they are used for good, can generate a lot of money especially to light nonprofit organizations are community based organizations and especially small businesses. I think a lot times sites will amplify. Small black businesses or business owners were creating things and it literally opens you up to people to support your products i. think in ways when you utilize your platform to uplift. And encourage and support resources in things that are out there for black folks I think that's something that more of. These types of sites can start to do. Now that's the point I do wonder what percentage like if you actually did, what percentage of share on posts are act I kind of lean towards the lifted Maybe one out of every fifteen. Twenty. That's something I. Think if I'm considering what my pro is I think the showroom actually does what I consider a pretty exceptional jobs documenting how black people use the Internet, black folks have. In DEX on social media, you know we are on twitter. So much is referred to as black twitter. This thing that all kind of white corporate executives are trying to figure out and the share room kind of will break down those pieces before black people like I think about the the not obeying video that came out recently. Day aware she. Fucking Bang. Not A. wakeup talking about not obeying and I'm like what is going on and I knew that I can go to the shave room and it will break down who made it why popular all the means they had developed all around it and I think that actually can be a big service like I don't know of too many other places that are talking about. The way. Black people use the Internet and social media like the share room us. Come along with a whole lot of other stuff. Absolute. Auto. I think that this shade room is a reliable platform for black celebrity. A celebrity period is is celebrity gossip every single celebrity whether they want to admit it or not they benefit from the celebrity height machine and that gossip like gossip mechanism the shade room does is provide back black celebrities who are frequently shut out of your us. Weekly's people magazine's it's a place. Where you know a black celebrity knows that somebody is GonNa care who they are what they're doing whether they are selling Tommy T or in the case of the simone dry like usually I like to keep some of the scams but I can be some old was I can go on the find out but also Michelle Obama gives a speech at the Democratic National Convention. Even if I missed it. Yeah NPR. Have NBC. SHAVER. Remarks on that to the thirty years from now we look back. The Oscars, the grammys, the emmys, the institutions that don't frequently reward black talent. We might look back did not see an accurate reflection of what was happening in the culture, our culture at the time American culture at the time. But this Shade Room Shave is GonNa Habit accurate count black people the culture and shaver actually documents a wide variety of black people and I think that's a good thing. Archive of like everything going on black. That's a good point. It's an interesting slice.

How to Navigate the World of High Risk Lending

"I everyone. This is dominic. Thanks for joining me. Today we're going to be talking about part of the credit and banking world that is often discussed but unfortunately, in the current crisis, it's becoming a reality for many. Today's topic is about high risk lending and how to deal with the predators that exist that very dangerous world. On the surface risk lending is just banking and investing. However. When you look closer, you will find that the players and rules have changed significantly from a typical business lending environment. Why have they changed? Well it's all about timing in the corporate landscape. During a crisis business owners are under a lot of pressure. They will try anything to save their company. The first place they start with cash, they look everywhere for it. Because without cash, a company cannot exist however in this desperate search, they can get swallowed up and crushed is they don't know who they are talking with. They think that they're talking with respectable and respectful lenders and investors, but that's not always possible. The current global economy is challenging for many industries. However, there is one group that has been waiting for a chaotic and fractured moment just like this. There are opportunistic and they can be lethal. While the economy was growing this group spent years amassing billions that they kept neatly piled on the sideline. They waited patiently for a recession, a crisis or a period of time just like this, where they could take advantage of week companies. This group consists of distress lenders and investors. Within this group, there are three primary categories that I describe as bears, sharks, and vultures. Let's start with the first abair. What's a bear? A bear someone that can cause you a lot of harm, but it's generally just interested in eating well. Your primary lender and some suppliers that extend you credit generally are bears. During good economic times they might be baby cubs but during difficult times, they grow big pause. They're not happy that you can't pay your bills on time. They may charge you a little bit more to borrow from them. And they may even tighten the rules on you. But. Usually they're not interested in closing down. They want you open. They want consistency. They want you to hit the numbers you projected and they want you to pay on time even if it's only a partial payment. They're just looking for something that's predictable. A bear will be your. STOIC friend. Unless of course, you become unpredictable. You stopped delivering on Promises Lash out at them or lighter them. If you do any one of those things the bear will bite you and whether you live or die. Depends only on the size of the bite. Sharks unlike a bear a shark doesn't care if you live or not. They principally care that they get their huge chunk of flesh from you. They will lend you money but it will cost you dearly. They often will lend against collateral that isn't secured by the primary lender. Sometimes, they will lend against the proof purchase orders, signed contracts and receivables. Other Times they may take collateral from your personal assets such as your home or other investments or savings. This group can include factoring lenders or other asset based lenders. Sometimes, they offered to bridge loans to get you through a particular period in time. There by bridging the? GAP OF CASH. No one really likes a shark. But you have to respect to shirk why? Because the giving you cash when no one else will. And they're taking a huge risk lending into a highly distress situation. You may not enjoy doing business with them but when in need. Their lifeline for your company. The third category in this world are vultures. Vultures there to pick the bones. In this moment of crisis euro may be strong. You believe that your company can make it through a rough patch, but the vulture knows otherwise. They know that you're already dead. A financial vulture is a highly experienced scavenger. Often the aware the appear wearing nice clothing using proper English presenting business school credentials in boasting about the exclusive group of investors in their hedge fund. From a distance, they may seem graceful close up you realize that there grossing noxious. A vulture two ways to approach you. First. They can lull you into a false sense of security passively agreeing with you that you can make it through the crisis.

Coronavirus: Israel marks Jewish New Year with second lockdown

"Rush Shawna or Jewish New Year begins at sunset this evening. But for Israel this new. Year's anything. But happy as the country becomes the first major economy to enter into a second. Nationwide lockdown against a backdrop of serious discontent towards the handling of the pandemic and the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself Israel, which was one of the first countries to enact stringent measures to inhibit the spread of the virus is shutting down. Again, the three weeks we'll joining me now is Alison Kopplin summer who is a journalist for hurt a good morning to you alison. Why is this can lockdown necessary? Well. It's basically necessary because our infection rates which reached a really dramatic low back in in May. have been creeping up all through the summer months and then I'm have basically exploded beginning. At the end of August, beginning of September which was really. Enhanced by the the return of of kids to school we really see that they've absolutely been able to to mark. A connection between the fact that kids went back to school on. September first and that since then the the rates have been have been doubling and and surging among the general population at an unprecedented rate before that, it was basically concentrated in certain populations, certain cities, certain neighborhoods. But as kids went back to school, it just exploded across the entire population. So this goes against what the so corona virus saw said a couple of months ago when he asserted the socio economic trauma inflicted by covert restrictions was greater than its health impacts. So can you help line the state of the economy and how these further restrictions will impact on businesses? Well. There's been a huge debate going into this lockdown as to the extent to which private businesses should be allowed to continue business as usual a huge debate over the the pain that closing down business will cause versus the attempt to to fight the to fight the lockdown We already have a major unemployment problem and unlike European countries Israel has not been fully compensating businesses for their losses. and. So there's a huge bitter angry rebellion by business owners small and large and not insignificant chance that this time around because people have much less faith than they did in the first lockdown there's going to be a lot of businesses I predict violating the restrictions and an opening for business even in the face of the of the restrictions I mean, what does the Don actually entailed? Everything must close. Everything must close except for essential services such as supermarkets and and pharmacies public offices will be open, but they won't receive. receive the public in In Government Offices Private businesses. Again, this came after fight are two privately reopened with a with a minimal amount of staff in in Workplaces So you know the economy is being partially allowed to function. That's why there are so many as they say, Swiss cheese holes in this lockdown but they're worried that you know in the attempts to keep the economy going to an extent know if schools are out, you can't have a full economy running. That they're putting so many holes in it in order to keep the the economy functioning at a certain rate that it's going to be ineffective in terms of of actually bringing the infection rate down significantly what about the situation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip? The situation is bad there too. There's a lockdown in Gaza right now and and the West Bank is also suffering from from it from an outbreak. So they are they're not in any kind of renewed full scale lockdown, the way that that we are, but they are they're in a difficult place as well. Now, this as you mentioned a huge amount of opposition to this and people are actually protesting who's out on the streets. Well There's always been a religious secular divide in. Israel? Approximately. Twenty twenty, five percent of our population are Orthodox smaller. percent of that are also Orthodox and those daybreak cities where the ultra-orthodox resided partially because of the large family size there and how how dense their residences is that has been really a hotbed of infection as well as Arab towns and. Cities and so it's been very hard for them to specially over a long period of six months to stop with their large gatherings, their traditions, their prayers, etc, and that is countered by. On, the other side and on the secular side, the need to protest against a Netanyahu how he's had this corruption trial, they've had large protests. So basically, there's this back and forth going on why can we not gather in a? Study Jewish learning while you can gather on the streets and have a protest, and for example, why can you go to your ritual baths and we can't go to the beach? So there's there's a lot of fourth fighting and then the the biggest and most desperate cry is from the business owners who are feeling so much economic pain. So there's protests coming from from all directions and how will this affect the political situation? While the political situation isn't good to begin with one of the reasons that Israel has been. So crippled in fighting the corona virus situation is as I said, really hotbeds of infection at least as of two three months ago we're in these ultra-orthodox cities neighborhoods, and what the coronavirus czar planned to do came in trying to do is to really shut those cities down and really be able without harming the economy on a large scale to focus the approach inside these communities and political pressures. made it impossible for Netanyahu, to really stand behind his are and do the because the ultra Orthodox parties said, if you close our cities if you shut down now. If, you don't allow us to go to synagogue. We are going to leave your coalition and basically bring down the government, and that's why at every turn these ultra-orthodox parties have been able to twist the government's arm into allowing them to have more freedom than the secular public looks at what's going on in the religious sector and they say, well, if they're not GONNA do it. We're not going to do it, and then you've got a very bad dynamic there. I listen Israel forced all foreign arrivals to self isolate on March the night that was before the World Health Organization announced that it was in fact, a pandemic given the the the country is now in this situation, won't you think that other nations around the world can learn by watching this? I think really the biggest lesson that that Israel can teach the world is. Opening up schools particularly when it above the age of ten or so is really a dangerous difficult and problematic as much as we all want to see our children. In school learning getting an in person education that that is really the trigger. This is now the second time that that sending kids to school have have sent our infection rates. Rising, and that's why any kind of a resumption of studies has to be done extremely slowly carefully in a measured way starting with the youngest kids and slowly going. Up and keeping a very, very strong monitoring. On how that that is affecting the society because kids go to school, they get infected, they come home in the infect their entire families.

As Fed Meets, It May Need to Consider Unusual Options During Pandemic

As Fed Meets, It May Need to Consider Unusual Options During Pandemic

"The Federal Reserve begins its two day meeting today. It's a chance for chair Jerome Powell to give his assessment as to where things stand with our economy and with the Central Bank can do in the future. The menu of options is unusual. Let's focus on what's most important to understand with our chief economics correspondent Nick Tim Rose Good Morning Nick Good Morning Mark. So Nick, we've seen the Fed lower interest rates now to near zero is the Fed. Running out of tools the answer is yes and no. If you look at what they normally do to spur recovery, they certainly don't have the same conventional toolkit that they have in the past and that is to Cut Short term interest rates they've cut interest rates as you said to near zero. So what tools do they have? Well, what they did after after the two thousand eight financial crisis is they can purchase assets government Treasury securities, mortgage backed securities, which they're doing right now they do that to try to drive down long term interest rates. The long term interest rates are already very low. So they still do have tools they can use, but it's possible that there were just reaching a point of diminishing returns with those post-crisis tools. So with those options on the table already being used, what could the chair do or suggest to try to jump start the economy even further Well, the Fed Chair, and a lot of Fed officials have been outspoken about government spending. So called fiscal policy and the reason for that is once you've already lowered interest rates attend your treasury yield is sitting around point seven percent and so when it's that cheap for the US government to borrow. Spending is much more likely to have an impact in terms of boosting demand. The other reason the Fed is more outspoken than they have been in the past about the need for government spending is that the nature of the current downturn is different from the past. So an economics textbook might say that when a downturn hits the Central Bank can. Stabilize the economy by lowering interest rates. This offsets declines spending on demand, but there's research showing that this stabilization tool isn't as effective in boosting spending when certain sectors of the economy aren't able to operate, and it's in those circumstances where if you can boost spending in those sectors or at least replace lost income even if you can't get people to travel. or to spend money in restaurants, then there's a better chance that you're going to limit the kind of the vicious circle of business owners who can't pay rent means their landlords have less money to maintain their staffs. All of those things can lead to layoffs that really don't have anything to do with containing the threat from the virus. This leads to my next question because the Fed just announced they want to see somewhat higher inflation than in the past and that seems a bit strange. Why would you want this to happen? That's right. The Fed doesn't really desire more or higher inflation as a goal in and of itself. But what they're concerned about is that when when households and businesses expect inflation to be lower inflation expectations are an important and the Fed things very important role determining what inflation actually is. So if you look at economies in Europe and Japan which are stuck with lower interest rates, lower inflation and lower growth, it can be a very difficult. Cycle to break to get people expect prices to be higher when they can see that prices are going up and so this isn't so much about boosting inflation. It's about keeping expectations from falling into that trap where you're constantly fighting against this, you're swimming upstream against the current of ever lower inflation expectations, and so the Fed is trying to reset how participants in the economy expect growth to be in the future to influence their decisions now.

Biden's Agenda for the Black Community with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake

"I'm Jim Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate. On this episode. A have a conversation with Mayor Stephanie, Rawlings Bleak Mayor Rawlings Blake served as the forty ninth mayor of Baltimore as she joins me to discuss Biden's agenda for the black community. Now, if you haven't taken a look at Biden's agenda for the black community, you WanNa hear this conversation we discuss this plans to close disparities in homeownership rates within the black community his plans to help close the wealth gap the expansion of the affordable care act and has extensive criminal justice reform plans including employing the Department of Justice to address police accountability, decriminalizing the use of canvas and the automatic expunge -ment of all cannabis use convictions. So. Here's my conversation with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake Mayor Rawlings Blake. Welcome to the PODCAST. So I WANNA talk about Biden's agenda for the black community because I was reading through that and I don't think in my lifetime that I've seen or proposal that's this extensive and targeted towards the black community and I wanted to be fair. So I looked through some other past presidential platforms and a lot of them aren't really archived. You know how he crafted this or you know, did he have help from outside organization or WHO's influencing him on this? The vice principal former Vice President Biden has a theory broad group of. Individuals who have been advising him and who care a lot about making sure that the the Democratic Party is right by a black people as well as he does right by black people when he is very hopefully elected NFC among about. Today's that's right. It's like fifty days or something I think with just kind of makes me nervous nervous excited both at the same time. And he's got economists that have been advising him as well as advocates and I think when you take a look at the plan many aspects of the plan, you see their their fingerprints on it that this is not for show. This is not something that is decorative on a on a website. This is something then can be implemented and we'll have a real impact on our community. Absolutely. Right. I agree with that and when I was just looking at the wording and some of the things that he hits on. Pretty. Deep right in an isn't something I would expect it to see us on the democratic side. You wouldn't see it on the Republican side even on the Democratic side, you know five or ten years ago. So that's something. Yeah. I WANNA go really deeply into every policy proposal, but there are few that I want to hit on some pressings. Building Wealth no health care and criminal justice reform. But. I WANNA start with building wealth because one of the things that he proposes is doubling the funding for the State Small Business Credit Initiative which doubling that to three billion dollars to assist small businesses and targeting specifically people of Color. You don't WanNa talk about the fact that you know that that's great but you know black people I think in the group of people of Color by people are thinker are usually at the bottom in terms of getting capital access to capital for building small businesses because there are other bias and other limitations that we face, we try to start small business you know. So have you actually address that those unique barriers to black people getting capital in starting small businesses? The first thing you do to address the barrier is acknowledged I can't tell you optus pointed I've been to hear our current president deny ignore the disparities that exist or by people in our country as when you start off ahead in the game and you have someone's willing to name it. And to a work to address it in also wanted to bring to your attention. It's not just the the the money for small businesses Biden Harris. Focused on African American women business owners specifically because as you know a, we are the majority of the businesses offices that are being created in the NBA minority community are African American women see address s like I said at first by identifying them and second step by step I I know there's going to need to be mentors are business mentors that are working to help these these small businesses achieve and when you have an administration that is sensitive, you'll be able to do what was done under the Obama Administration where there was a lot of support event to two businesses. You know a lot of those sports have been ripped up by the current administration so A. Definitely identifying the issues and pudding supports in place to close some of those gaps are the essential you're right. So we have to recover from the damage has been done from the current administration, but then you know things like this policies like this have to account for the fact that we're pandemic. I'm a lot of the businesses that by people have owned have probably been hit in hurt quite. A bit. So that's another place to start. Definitely I. Mean I think one of the things you you will hear a line that I've heard a lot. It's not. We're not trying to go back to where we were. You know this is about ripping up be You know the race face inequities that impact the black community across the board and making sure that we are not ignoring you. Know, the problems you've seen,

We're about to show you in a moment. There's a warning that it is disturbing. Sarah. Ner. Is Out Front. This is the moment to Los Angeles County. Sheriff's deputies are ambushed. The shooter walks up to their parked squad car and Fires Multiple Times. Both are hit at point blank range outside of metro station in Compton. act. the two deputies were doing their job minding their own business watching out for the safety of the people on the train and. Seen some just walk up and just start shooting on them it. It pisses me off. A thirty one year, old mother and her twenty four year old partner a rushed to the hospital. Both have only been on the force fourteen months. The Sheriff says both were shot in the head. The female deputy was able to apply attorney came to her partner who was also bleeding from his arm recklessly they both survived. Outside the hospital, a small practice of just five people are so appears screaming at police. When says he hopes for the death of the deputies? iphone. The protester holding the phone identifies himself as a member of La's African town coalition a group not nationally known before he set out, he took to facebook I've been depressed, but this right here lightens my heart right because you know share department has murdered too many of our brothers and sisters matter of fact, law enforcement throughout the country has murdered too many of our brothers and says, this is the start of retribution. Then I think this is a very good. Starr's office the Mayor of Los Angeles. Reacting Strongly to his palace comments there's no place in civilized. Society for anybody to draw arm to shoot our law enforcement officers that put their lives on the line and I won't ever let a couple of voices that not only are uncalled for but it's important to say something like that both president trump and democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden weighing in on the shooting trump express his outrage to supporters in Nevada on Sunday you. So video of that animal that went up to the car did everybody see that There's animal this animal goes up to the car to unsuspecting fine people there was fine people. I mean they're in very grave condition as you know, Biden responded with this statement acts of lawlessness and violence directed against police officers are unacceptable outrageous and entirely counterproductive to the pursuit of greater peace and justice in America as are the actions of those who cheer such attacks on those who perpetrate these crimes must be brought to justice and if convicted face the full brunt of the law. And we spoke to a member of the community here who's lived here his whole life and he said as as a black business owner here he says, he absolutely is disgusted with hearing people say they hope that the deputies die he says absolutely no in this community truly believes that and they are praying for the deputies as for what is happening. But they are still in a major manhunt scenario looking for the person responsible for shooting these two deputies have they have just now up to the reward from one hundred, thousand to one, hundred, seventy, five, thousand to anyone with information that leads to an arrest. All. Right Sarah thank you a horrific.

"Over the years the accelerate your business growth podcast has gained recognition as a great resource for small business owners, sales, professionals, business leaders, and this is because of the guests these are folks with expertise in particular areas of business and they join me to share that expertise with all of you. Today is no different. My guest is Dan more after brief stints in enterprise and midmarket data center service providers. Dan co-founded vaporware to help entrepreneurs take their software ideas to market. Over the past six years, he's helped vaporware deliver thousands of iterations across dozens of APPs in four remain industries which are healthcare. HR Real Estate Nit. Ranging from the first. MVP. Versions to modern iterations on mature solutions. Thanks so much for joining me today Damn. Thanks for having me Dan. Absolutely so so Dan we're going to be talking about. Automating and and software and. I'm wondering if you would share with the listeners, your thoughts on Investing in custom software like Shit should we? Like build around. Should we just buy off the shelf? What? What are your thoughts? A great question one when we get a lot I think from the perspective of a business owner any new project or investment comes with a lot of risk, and so we evaluate each of those scenarios based on how much risk, what kind of risk tolerance of heads and so there's a there's a process of a leadership called thinking bets that if you don't know. All the facts. And want to make some kind of educated guess. How? How do you work through that process? In. So aligning those risks to what the business wants. Typically comes out. With a clear answer on the buy versus build spectrum in it's not just related to dollars. It's also related to outcomes that they're looking to achieve. So there's plenty of software off the shelf today, but if you're looking for a competitive edge or if your business is very unique in different ways and doesn't match up with Common practices than. Those are are some good opportunities for custom software.

When the Business World Shifts Gear, Use It to Accelerate Your Business with Agie Sihotang

"Augie say what's up to fire nation and sure something interesting about yourself that most people don't know fire nation I hope all of your healthy. Most people don't know about me most people don't know that I'm not a big fan of sweets I don't really eat dessert but if you come to the negotiation table with Fried Bananas Boba Drink, you will definitely out negotiate me Oh brother come down to Puerto Rico I will bring some fungal which are fried planes and you're GONNA be in heaven and everybody's GonNa win. I will lose for sure. So, fire nation has shared the we're talking about when the business world, the shift gear, which of course, it has, we need to accelerate our business and we're going to use this shift to do just that. Now let's just be honest covid nineteen. Was Cry and it is Cray Cray. So if our e commerce business was hurt because of this pandemic, what can we do? You are absolutely correct a lot of people were hurt by it are still hurting by well as the title says, shift gear adapt to the surrounding s an example a lot of Amazon. Sellers were affected in March in mid March because Amazon. Announced that it was limiting the fulfillment by Amazon or the FBI shipment meaning you can't send most of your products Amazon warehouse to store and to have itself. Through the FBI program as a customer, you might have noticed just delays in your products being delivered to your house, but as third party sellers, the couple or the few weeks that restriction created so much damage because people rely on the system. So it was a nightmare for most people they had to lay off some people they had to close them some of their categories or businesses or products that they're selling I, feel bad for them. But what I found, some creative entrepreneurs started to do the fulfillment of the sales themselves. They might have to store the products and their house or even their apartment. Some even started to look for a third party fulfillment company, which is pretty simple. By the way all you gotta do is Google Third Party fulfillment company in Los Angeles or New York wherever they might be and they will be able to fulfil your sales like an Amazon warehouse would be some even started to look into other platforms to sell it. So when the business world shifts gear, they used it to accelerate their business. Now, this this is when as a business owner business leader as an entrepreneur, you wanna have a fluid model in your business. Like water water always adopts to its vessel right so no matter how weird looking the vessel is water will always adapt to it. I understand that a lot of ECOMMERCE businesses are on survival mode right now. But don't be discourage. In your line of Business or category, there are gaps in the marketplace. There are problems in the marketplace that have never been faced before and you can adapt to them and fill the gap. You just have to look and ask everyone you're in business with to see what kind of gap you can fill and use it to accelerate your business. I believe instead of being an online seller jail d you need to be an online solver people have problems, people have problems, businesses have problems, some that they've never ever faced before. We're all new to this. We've never experienced anything like this unless maybe you you were alive hundreds of years ago, but I doubt it. So once you are creative once you become creative and listen to your surroundings, you'll be able to take that inner problem solving drive that most of us wrote in our first resume fire nation. If you are able to provide the best solution to your customers biggest problem, you're going to win a period. It doesn't matter the time it doesn't matter what's going on in this world you will. Win and I love how you put this Augie adapt or die. I mean I'm GonNa get old dramatic air adapt or die. But the good news is fire nation were human beings. We've been adapting for seventy thousand plus years and we're GONNA continue to do so and this those e commerce business owners the do adapt they can adapt that are not just going to survive, but they're going to thrive in this new world that we live in, and now I love the phrase Augie your network is your net worth. How can We properly use our network to provide solutions for our customers. I am an absolute believer in that I absolutely believe that we need to use our network at least to do three things. Number one is to generate revenue. If ten people know what you do right now and you create the amount of business that you're generating right now, multiply it most businesses, not all the most are a numbers game the more seat you throw out there the more trees you can expect to grow proper watering is needed I get that number's game. Number to create opportunities I mentioned earlier that everyone has a problem be a problem solver. If you're an online seller, you are shy in talking to people well, be a problem solver be an online problem-solver. You can still do that the more variety half a your network, the more you can build something.

We're dealing with unemployment we're dealing with racism. Some minority business owners are really really suffering from both the riots and covert nineteen pandemic so Steve Let's go to the phones talk to the People Ida everybody You know doing this time that we're all coping with on so many different ways. We decided to take some calls and just hear from some of our listeners. We don't have a all. We don't have a topic. Topic is just what's going on in his world to down me. It's all the same thing you know a moment ago. It was covert nineteen, which was the conversation and now I think we've gotten onto something that's. Equally as important in starting to have a more resounding effect or more people than I even thought it would, which is could be a good thing for the cause, so we're going to go to some of our listeners on the phone Let's go to our first. Call is Steve Harvey. Who is this? Is My spine. I'm calling from Atlanta Georgia Hi Myra. Hey, listen. You're a business owner here. How how is this affecting you? And what would you like to say I? Would they Jesus be Bob wire fence right now because this is a lot. I have been through an economic downturn. I've been through the recession. I've been through two three Republican administrations as business owner and I can tell you I've never seen anything like this. This is crippling now. I know for a lot of businesses. Before we got the people out in the streets, pandemic has a close so many businesses. How is Your Business closed I? Don't you don't? Don't have to give the name of what what type of business do you have and is it closed? And what do you foresee happening? Wish? She thought well I can tell you. This is my tenth year in business in this brand. I've owned Salon for twenty years. Over Twenty Years Since Nineteen Ninety, nine I'm moved to Atlanta. Nights and ninety eight and when I pull you. and. We felt in have always felt like. The streets were paved with gold. This is not a political city. This is not a city like New York Chicago, Detroit L. A. The cost of living with debt for entrepreneurs. So if you could see in, believe it, you can have it that reality television Atlanta, because I've been on reality TV and I know what that looks like, but this is real business people who if you set your mind to something and you had a drink could accomplish it, and it was not stagnant based on. On politics and the cost of living allowed it to be that, but this pandemic was nothing. Anybody could have prepared for in any way shape or form this the not like the housing crisis. It's not like the great recession where you could blame people who have forecast or over leveraged. This was something that was beyond our control and I'm in the beauty business where we can't. We can't say six feet away. You have to touch people and my salons and businesses have been closed since March twenty third. We opened three weeks ago. And to fifteen percent of the revenue that we normally do during this time of the year, which is our busiest time of the year, which is prom season, which is tax season, which is Mother's Day? Every major holiday before June is off big time of the season and our business was at zero. And it was if I hadn't been the type of business that I am. My employees wouldn't have I. See a dime because my employees are actual employees. They're not subcontractors their employees, so if it weren't for the federal government stepping in and giving the extra six hundred dollars on top of the basic unemployment that they get, they would have been homeless, and this is disheartening. It's sad. It's troubling and all of this. It's too much. Too much while. I understand that and now you know we we. We put in for you I mean we're praying for everybody to get through. This is still going to be some challenges even with the stimulus packages, and and even when it gets back to a sense of normality, still gonNa be a bit it just is. It's going to be a bit. It's GonNa. Take a while to get back to normal and I don't know what the norm is. GonNa look like either I don't know if it's going to be. Anything like it before I can play that. There would be what we had before. And you know what I'm okay. I mean things change. You know life has changed. Maybe this will cause some other things to be looked at everything so hanging there.

Let's put on a show and then by the end there's an actual show. Yeah but I mean. Here's the single. I got trained as an independent filmmaker. Everything I've done my life so far of any note is because I approached it like making a movie how do I pull off this smoke and mirrors thing with virtually no money and and being as insignificant as I am? I do with favors with goodwill tenacity. That makes it possible. Told Chris that when I picture him. It's like that old. Saying about ducks are they. Looked calm on the surface but underneath the water the paddling furiously. I wanted to know what it's been like in his head over the last month the mental strain of all this. He of course answered by referencing. A movie I keep thinking about the scene in Indiana Jones. Where have you seen the movie I have but it was a long time of course so just quickly remind you? He's looking for The Holy Grail. His Dad Sean. Connery's on this quest with him. He's overcome all these obstacles on the end at Stereotypical Indiana Jones fashion and he approaches this opening like a huge like endless pit and the place he needs to get to his. You know forty feet away easily. There should be a bridge there but there isn't. There is only certain Desk Philip and he remembers that you have to have faith and his dad is whispering indie believe in he believes.

"You know I never wanted to be a small business owner when I first started out in the early early eighties. I want to be President of IBM but for me. I then got tired of my boss. There who promoted incompetent people over myself so I struck on my own. My next guest is also an accent. Entrepreneur Markets Babcock. Start out as a personal trainer at a big box gym when he was twenty which eventually led to strike on his own. Her Name Mobile Mobile Studio and eventually formed a partnership with fellow personal trainer but at time he was twenty four. Marcus welcome to the show. Great to be here today. It's good I fine for most small business owners. If we knew actually what we're in for we probably never would have struck out on our own because it's just way too crazy absolutely it's kind of the debris mindset in the beginning like. I could be my own boss and comes second. So so why is that? Isn't that because we read all the things about these great incredible success stories? And we think we'RE GOING TO BE THE NEXT. Michael Dell Bill Gates. Yeah exactly I think in some peoples cases like myself. It's it's forced onto them so I actually ended up getting laid off at the big box gym and Had become a small business owner but then just the dream of. Hey now my future is really in my control. And I'm very confident myself and I'm GonNa make the same big of course that's the dream like. Okay now I work for myself. I can work anytime I want to with anybody that I want to. It's going to be fantastic. I control over my own life but it doesn't quite turn out that way does it. Yeah no not not quite You find yourself working more hours Less less pay more expenses. And you're not like really doing the fun stuff anymore. You're not doing the stuff that you were doing beforehand. Which my case was actually doing the training with with the people who is more about the marketing bringing New People on organizing all of that. And I think that's the most difficult part of having your own business because most of us get started to solve a problem. Help a customer but we don't realize there's all this other stuff right around running a business as you said marketing keeping track of. Who's paid who hasn't paid setting appointments all the things that kind of get in the way of actually doing the work yeah. It was very humbling. I was like Oh yeah I can. I can definitely track money on my own I can. I can organize my calendar on my own. I can keep track of all my clients Piece of paper or my head and then it actually start scaling and I'm going. Whoa spending twelve hours a day trying to manage the business. And then you know it felt like another twelve hours doing the actual training and that's a that's a real big issue. You said when you scale tell us about your journey and how it all worked out so when I was in the big box gym I had like a or nine clients which was a good load for me I was also doing a full time college at the time too and then a little thing called college right. Exactly just mixed in there Anyone I struck out on my own I actually took a year off college and decided to Kinda grow. That business I.

"Almost twenty years and served on our operating board. Jax thank you for being here with us today. Thank you good to have you jack. You and I Week ago were on spring break and we came home Monday morning and went right into what we've kind of called a war room. We took our normal operating board meeting and our weekly rhythm and disrupted that and said. Let's just jump in with all of our leaders Dave and start figuring out how we're going to respond to everything that's going on out there and so I want our listeners and viewers to remember that we also operating a business just like you guys and we're trying to figure out how to respond just like you guys. Are we all have new problems? Now that we're working to solve together so Jack Monday morning we come in. There's a little bit of energy in the air. What was going through your mind when we came back from spring break and realize like we've got a whole new situation on our hands it was so surreal because we left both of us left and things were sort of cautious like we were waiting to see how things might go and while we were gone. All of a sudden are building is emptied out everybody's working remotely which we had never done before We're trying to make sure things are gonNA work. We're trying to figure out. How do we do business while people are gone? How do we lead remotely which we had never done and we come back in and everything is different and all the plans that we had laid out where planners here all of those plans are put on hold while we stop and go? What's really important right now. So as a business leader know certainly we're trying to lead with confidence and also it's going through our head. What is worst case scenario? How do even plan for worst case scenario when we don't really have a precedent for something like this and of course we don't panic and go to worse worse worst case scenario and we don't want to freak out our team but we also have to kind of be realistic and you know how. How have you seen us? appropriately kind of set the the level and say this is potentially how bad it can get and then back out of a plan from that point. One of my favorite quotes. I've heard during this time. It's facts are our friends and what I've learned is with me and with other seasoned leaders is when you come in your emotions will tell you that your worst case scenario is far worse normally than what your actual worst case scenario is likely to be and so when we start laying down. What do the fax tell us. What do the numbers of our business tell us if our sales dropped by this percent or this percent or this percent and what I've found is in my own leadership time if I will look at on paper what the worst case scenario the most likely worst case scenario is an deal with that and get peace with that that if everything that could go wrong goes wrong? That's our worst case scenario and just take a moment as a leader and just breathe and go. I hope that doesn't happen. But that is my worst case scenario now I can set it off to the side and go. Let's get to work. Let's get to work making sure that doesn't happen. But I've Kinda Gotten Outta my head so that that emotion doesn't just hover over meal like cloud while we're trying to work our way through this when you're putting those ideas on paper and trying to figure out what numbers to us. You know. There was a scientist who said every model is wrong but some of them are useful. Yeah you know so. I think we can't go to like trying to perfect and have a crystal ball. But there's there's something about plugging scenarios. How do you kind of get close enough and move forward with that plan versus like you know really trying to get down to the exact percent? I mean. We can't perfectly tell so. How do you balance that tension? Well here's what we did here. We came up with phases. Hey Phase one is our revenues dropped by a few percentage points or less and And it feels like this is a a a difficult time in our business but not catastrophic. And here's what that looks like. And here's what we're going to do about it. Face to is worse. Our scenario is our revenues are dropping by more. This is happening. This is happening. Maybe the government doesn't let us come back to work as quickly as we thought. And what does that look like? All the way to a third phase. Which is wow. Things are far worse. They're closer to that worst case scenario and that we've planned forum but when we got him on paper and they will change they have to be fluid. They're going to change sometimes. Daily definitely weekly but as things are changing. We're able to sort of line up. This is what the facts are telling us today. These are scenarios in phases that we laid out that helps us keep a level head while we try to work our way through this. I've talked to a lot of business owners in the last few days and there's two different conversations around Worst case scenario and what you communicate with your team Some of my friends in the business owner community. We're telling our team everything and there's some who are saying. Hey my face. Three includes laying people off. I'm not gonNa tell them that because I don't want to panic the team. What's your philosophy on? How much to share. It's a balance for me. And here's what I mean by. That is as the leader. I can handle more fearful emotions. I feel like as a season. The leader then my newest leader on the team or somebody that just moved their family across the country to start with us and so. I want to be completely honest with our team. It doesn't mean I tell them every single thing that could possibly keep them up at night and what I mean by that is I. Want to be real with my leaders. But real with my leaders not sobbing uncontrollably out of fear about how great I am this business. I still am the leader and I'm charged with taking this group of people in leading them through a crisis but if I'll be authentic and sincere and tell them guys I didn't sleep last night either. I'm afraid I'm dealing with some things I've never dealt with before now. Let's roll up our sleeves and see how we're GONNA get through this. 'cause I believe by looking at the facts and the scenarios and the talent around this table. I believe we're GONNA get through this and so it's an opportunity to be sincere not over share but be sincere. Be Honest never mislead in any way and walk people. Sometimes they can only handle little bit of information at a time. Even though you've got a greater picture in your mind a love that that is so true Jack I WanNa talk about how we get our leaders. Our team to help us solve these new problems. I've noticed just among some of our leaders in the last few days that they're still a little bit of hesitation on what is my role now. My role two weeks ago was very clear. We talk about it all the time and now all of this new information is coming down and we're making quick decisions moving really fast and I think a lot of our team wants to get it right. They WANNA help but they also still need us to say. Hey I'm looking at you. Take this ball run with it. It's not normally even your job but I just need. Somebody who know can be the champion of this thing. What's important to bring our team in terms of communication with them. Bring them into the problem so that they have clear lanes to run IT I. I'll say that I've found. That are titles right now. Have less to do with what we're doing day to day than at any other time in twenty years that I've been here the CFO might be helping carry out an initiative. That has nothing to do with accounting. And that's the same way around. Our table is whatever needs to be done. Whoever's got talent the ability and the bandwidth to move that ball forward might be given that ball that opportunity to run with for the next twenty four to forty eight hours while we move the thing forward. Here's another thing I've found is when you give people responsibilities and they share in whether or not we weather the storm or not. It gives us more confidence. It gives us more of a sense of control that we have something to do with the outcome. We feel less like a victim and we feel like we're all working together instead of relying on just the leader or the leader and a few others to get us through this. We're all responsible to do whatever it takes to get through this well. These are great tips. You know we've talked about planning for a worst case scenario. We've talked about the value of getting your plan ahead and onto paper We've talked about appropriately sharing and being pretty transparent with your team Also let them know what the problem is and invite them into that so we can work on it as a team. How do we deal with the fact that we're all running about three times harder than we were just a month ago and we're exhausted? Our teams exhausted. I don't know about you but I mean I'm jumping out of bed first thing in the morning and it's just like this time-warp you know and I look up and all of a sudden it's nine or ten o'clock at night and I'm getting off a call and and I love a part of that because I just feel like our whole team is coming together and over communicating and working to do whatever it takes and I also know and and you do too that. It's not sustainable. So the value of downtime the value of taking a break and figuring out okay. How how am I going to pull back from the chaos for a second? How can we give ourselves permission to still do that? When everything's on fire when there is a fire in the business or just in your life when there's a crisis adrenaline goes way way up and all of a sudden you've got energy that maybe you didn't have before this crisis and you are able to work harder longer hours make decisions faster. And there's a certain amount of of positivity in that and adrenaline energy in that and we teach people to do the same thing when they're getting out of debt. Hey take an extra job. Throw some pizzas. Do whatever it takes but just as we've learned and getting out of debt that you can't do that as a long term plan you can't lead twenty four hours a day for a long period of time without hitting a wall and you may not see the wall coming but your body and your mind have a limit to where that adrenaline is. GonNa run out. And if you don't have a planned break in there to recharge your own batteries personally spiritually physically resting if you're not if you're not taking care of sort of the four walls of who you are as a then you're just going to run out of gas and you're not GonNa do your team too good. You got to plan. Some downtime. To recharge spiritually physically emotionally relational Jack Unit. I've talked about this. One of what I believe is one of the greatest leaders to ever walk. The face of this earth is Jesus Christ and if you read the Bible like I do you'll see times where Jesus was healing people and the multitudes were lined up and then all of a sudden he just went away to be alone and it never says in the scripture when everybody was healed then he took a break I mean. Can you imagine this line of people like a greeting line? And he just has to pick. And Say Hey. I'm sorry I can't get to you and help you right now because I've got to go be alone and pray. Recharge my batteries and so often think you know if Jesus did that None of us are him even as leaders. We WanNA fix every problem out there and unfortunately we're not going to fix every problem. I think is what we're saying Jack. This has been incredible before we jump off. Any final thoughts are words of encouragement for leaders right now in the midst of this chaos. Speak to their heart. My final thoughts are this. If you find yourself out of control. And there's some forced downtime a Lotta Times it's business owners. We are so busy working in the business that we're really not able to stop work on the business and we complain about that all the time. There's not enough time to stop and really think strategically about the next ten years. This is the perfect time for that. This is thinking time. It's also relationship time when this storm passes and it will. Your team will remember the things you said and did during the storm. Use this as a time to encourage to inspire to lift others up when you see them. Getting tired and weak use this a time to build relationships or to mend broken relationships and win this passes. You will be glad you did jack. Thank.

"No you said on our operating board and and Dave is very much in this stage right now where he's thinking about how our business nine hundred people lives is passed him. So what has it been like to get to spend time with a business owner that is in that stage. Well it's really great. You know and I gotta be honest. I was really in mature and and kind of naive in my world view about business when I started here and Davis taught me so much about thinking about this idea of legacy and what. I've learned what I've been inspired by as I've ever as I've said at his feet and I've I've heard more about this idea of second generation and third generation fifth-generation businesses that are thriving. You know it really is sad when somebody works as hard as most business owners work to build something and they're planting in these is fields that at the end of their time that the whole field just dries up. That's really sad. It doesn't have to be that way because they're still employees. They're still customers you. You've done all the hard work to get something off the ground. Nurture it and feed it and it should live beyond you. That's one of the really cool things about businesses. You can create something that for generations to come continues to have some type of life some type of energy some type of blessing people whether it's the the team or the customers hours and of course it's going to evolve and shift and the business model is GonNa look different from generation to generation but you could start something and get it into motion and so I would just challenge you know if you're on the treadmill and you go on sounds great but I'm just trying to pay the bills I get it. It's hard to think about legacy at that stage but ultimately what's life really about out. It's not about us. It's not about just growing our lifestyle and in the bills and and getting to have material success. It's about investing in people and bring in life into to the world in a way that they're really empowers people and builds people and so we get to do that with our team we get to do with our customers and and hopefully we get to do it in a way where they get to continue.

"And so one of the struggles is that you probably are gifted at the thing that you're doing and so there's a taking it for granted or not thinking it's great because like you do it or you've done it your whole life or like it's not that hard and so even that like the worthiness is such a base on on so many levels but like not thinking what you do is worth it so that's one of the the levels but then also and i learned this to going from like working life coaching part time to full time was that you have to be a business owner you know like you have to there's certain things where you're not just doing the thing you know like when you do something on the side on a in a traditional job you just you're just doing less hours and that's it and if you go full time you had more hours but when you are a fulltime creative than you have to be your own janitor you're your own marketer you're your own accountant you're your own boss you know and so that takes a different and i think it's just education like once you know what to it in place than you can do it in there comes grit like will you do it but it again so there's always like the practical but then there's also that like inner game mindset part too you know and so i think that if you can know that what you do is worth it that a it's a calling you know and so that it's really your duty to fulfill that calling and then also if that calling was placed on your heart that there's also people who need what you do specifically from you from your energy from your voice and if you can honor that and then just get whatever education you need to know how to do your own marketing and you know how to you know hire an accountant to help you keep your book straight than you're you'll be good you know and it's not as hard as it sounds i instead you're saying jolt let those barriers those i guess like find a way to can be very scary to create your own business so instead of letting those barriers maybe it's more of what are what's.
