Burned through most or all of their emergency savings and more than a quarter missed a mortgage or rent payment know, what are the longer term consequences of this? Well, if you get behind on your bills, you pay a penalty and that can affect your credit score, which makes it hard to get a loan or mortgage.

Right. And can you get a sense of which federal workers felt this? The most women were less likely to have an emergency savings account black and Hispanic federal workers were less likely to have emergency savings than whites.

A normalized cannabis in the US the recent passage of America's farmville legalized the growing of hemp which is the cannabis plant psychoactive cannabis is still illegal at the federal level. But legal in a number of states hemp promises. A lot of things beyond altering one's outlook pain relief and relaxation or some of the claims smoke. Wallin is president of vertical companies which is doing cannabis from seed to consumer he came to this from a background in the alcoholic beverages industry. So this one plant cannabis there's a legal definition of hemp, which is if it has zero point three percent THC, which the psycho active element of cannabis. It's legally classified as hemp. So that's what got passed in the farm Bill. I think the most popular thing is everyone's curious about in lots of people are asking about is the CBD Kennedy all is the non psychoactive element of of the plant. It's an anti inflammatory you we can't make health claims because there's not been enough serious studies because it was not legal to study. But we knew anecdotally, it's helped people with lots of conditions. So how's it going to work? Now, the farm Bill is passed. Can you move a CBD product as long as it doesn't have the psychoactive stuff across state lines? Yes. But so. Depends on what it's going into and the level scrutiny. You'll get it's still unclear what the rules are with consumables food and beverages. Right. So FDA is holding hearings. I we plan to be involved, and they're not gonna crack down on health and wellness lotions massage oils topical 's, you know, the level the threshold level of what they're looking at. You know, kind of goes in a hierarchy number one hockey is don't make health claims if you make the claim that you have not backed up and don't have substantial evidence of the that'll be the first thing they crackdown on. So when we're talking about the CBD market, the non psychoactive stuff that comes from the cannabis plant. You think this market is going to be more free flowing in a year hundred percent? So look, I've I've had conversations with every big retailer that you can imagine the big hospitality companies. They're all really interested in because their their customers are being asked about this stuff. So they're all looking at it. And they're all watching what the FDA's doing. So.

Express news jobs get to know express. Welcome to before breakfast a production of I hurt. Good Morning. This Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to plan for fun in Uncertain Times. Longtime listeners knew that I really love to plan in particular, I love my lists. Every year around this time I post a summer fund list over at my website Laura, van dot com, consisting of activities that make summer feel like summer to me. Some are perennials like strawberry. Picking and others are based on summer. Vacation plans like a Disney trip. We booked for late August and early September. Planning lets us. Anticipate are fun. This year though there's a lot of uncertainty. Will amusement parks even be open. With a stay at home order be lifted before the strawberry season is over. I've read a few think pieces about how this is all teaching us the futility of planning. But I think that would be a ridiculous lesson to take away from this. Life is always uncertain. We are spinning on an improbable planet in the middle of cold space. Any of US could die tomorrow. But, we probably won't. So in general best to eat your vegetables loss and contribute to your 401k. Likewise we can still plan for fun in Uncertain Times. We don't ever want to become too attached to our plans. We don't want to get to the point where our happiness or even our self concept rests on our plans. This would be like calling off the wedding because it might rain. Life guarantees nothing. But. We can plan for various scenarios and hope for the best. Oh figuring out what would make us happy and the event of something far less than perfect. For instance my family loves our. Strawberry picking. But if for some unknown reason, outdoor activities like strawberry picking are still unavailable in early June. We can ask what part we really like I'm pretty sure. My kids are most excited about making strawberry shortcake with homemade whip cream, and that we can still do. We can plant our own strawberry plants in the backyard even if they never do all that well. Every summer. I like to do what I call a mommy. Day with each of my kids. The two of US spend one on one time. Day doing something the kid chooses. I'm still hoping that places like amusement. Parks and beaches will open, but if not we can choose other things to do together. Especial Picnic and walk somewhere doing a project reading stories together. Even camping in the backyard? WE HOPE FOR OPTION A. Action be if it doesn't happen. So I, encourage you to still make a summer fund list. I'm certainly doing so some big stuff simply can't happen if you don't plan for it. You will not get a reservation at Cinderella's royal table unless you book one hundred eighty days out. But, if a pandemic precludes eating there well, we've still got a lot of princess dress up costumes. And the option to go on trips in twenty, twenty one and beyond. In the meantime. The says Laura.

Express news jobs get to know express. Welcome to before breakfast. A production of I hurt radio. Good Morning. This, is Laura? Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to take on a long term project that you can associate with this summer. We are living through Tumultuous Times. And One way to deepen memories is to consciously undertake something. That will always link your mind to this time. If. You've ever undertaken a huge project. You probably recall when you did it. Over Christmas break when I was in seventh grade I built a dollhouse from a kit completely by myself. I sanded I fitted pieces. I glued on hundreds of shingles. Much of my teenage years have disappeared into the past, but that I remember. I also associate certain long books with certain times. I, tackled Kristen lavransdotter a door stopper of an epoch during a beach trip. My extended family took to celebrate my parents fiftieth wedding anniversary. Now Medieval, Norway the summer of two, thousand seventeen, and the Jersey shore are forever linked in my mind. A lot of places are in an in-between state this summer. Kids may be out of camp. Even some restaurants and activities are slowly backup. This may go in and out. There is much uncertainty with everything. It would be easy to spend open evenings watching uninteresting TV or scrolling mindlessly on social media. Or worrying without taking concrete action. Having a long term project on the other hand, dizzy something specific to do in the evening instead. Making forward progress on. A project offers a different way of marking the passage of time. The actual project itself can be just about anything though I recommend something that feels challenging, but doable and hopefully meaningful as well. Maybe you want to read through a certain list of books or a certain lengthy book. My daughter and I are now building a dollhouse together. It's similar to the one I built years ago. And it's something I've wanted to do for a while. As we are about to go through the teenage years, which will no doubt present challenges? It will be nice to have something we can look back on having done together. Maybe you want to write a book. Write five hundred words a day and a ninety days. You've got forty five thousand words, which is a good start on a draft. Maybe, this is the summer you finally enlarge those old photos and frame them and hang them somewhere prominent. Or maybe the project is of a different sort. My friend Emma Johnson who runs the wealthy single mommy? Business has responded to the economic crisis by giving no strings attached grants each week to a mom in need. This is a wonderful project. Or maybe this is the summer you start your mentoring program virtually. And any case, think about the things you find yourself saying you want to do one day or if you had the time. That time could be now. Your project will give structure to your time this summer and someday when you are looking back. You can associate the project with this time. So much of life and slip through our fingers. Memories disappear into the past. A tangible result can serve as a reminder. And this makes our memories deeper and stronger. And ultimately memories are all we really have. What term projects are you working on right now? Anything you're considering taking on.

Express news jobs get to know express. Welcome to before breakfast, a production of I hurt. Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast, today's tip is to journal one sentence everyday. journaling is a rewarding and generally pretty enjoyable habit. Even, people who don't love the process of journaling, generally enjoy the feeling of having kept a journal. Of being able to look back through the days and weeks and years and recall how it felt to be younger and in a different part of life. It's also valuable to have a record of what it was like to live through significant world events such as the pandemic, currently taking place. We know that memory is fallible. But seeing what you wrote years ago can conjure memories backup with more accuracy and detail. What's more getting your thoughts down on? Paper can have creative and emotional benefits. And her book, the artist's way. Julia Cameron introduces the practice of morning pages, which involves engaging in a stream of consciousness journaling practice first thing every morning. Many successful writers swear by this technique. However if you want to develop a journaling habit, you may want to start smaller. People who study habits find that many people do well by starting really small. An aiming to make the habits so easy that you can't say no to it. So if you'd like to start journaling, try reducing the habit down to a bite sized task that takes more than thirty seconds. By setting out to journal just one sentence per day you'll find that the barrier to journaling is extremely low. But you'll still get most of the benefits, and you can always right more on some days if you're feeling inspired. With something so small as a one-sentence generally habit. You might find it helpful to tie your journal to something else you do daily. For example, maybe you're right. You're one sentence per day right after you brush your teeth in the evening. or You keep your notebook by the microwave and right while you wait for the water to heat up for your teeth. You can journal in any notebook of your choice or even record your sense on each day's page in your planner. Typing works to you could keep running Google document. Many bookstores and online retailers also sell designated one line a day journals and some of these journals include prompts to get you inspired. Daily activities sometimes feel too mundane to record. But consider how your typical day now differs from what a typical day! Look like ten years ago. Gretchen Rubens Happiness project. one-sentence Journal covers five years. Sue can see what one-sentence you chose to record on the same day in previous years. You probably won't naturally remember the exact date your now kindergarten. The child rolled over for the first time as a baby. But with a one-sentence Journal, you might. In the end, the format itself doesn't matter. What matters is that by taking a moment out of your day to reflect, you can take yourself outside of time for a bit. In my book off. The clock I analyzed nine hundred time diaries. I found that the people who had the most abundant perspective on time. We're far more likely to engage in reflective activities such as journaling. Time didn't just pass. They approached it mindfully. And if you aim to keep a positive journal and look back on it in the future, you'll reap a second set of benefits. The. Sick web of memory that also makes time feel more, rich and vast. It's more like tapestry and less like a slick linoleum floor. So today tried journaling just one sentence about your life. Try Tomorrow to. It's an easy habit to keep. And in the long run, you'll be glad you did. In the meantime. This is Laura. Thanks for listening and here's to making the most of our time.

Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to spring clean without losing all your free time in the process. When the weather turns nicer, many people like to open up their homes and freshen things up. We're not living in the Arrow in this was about airing out soot, but still the impulse to spring clean is strong. This is especially true this year when many of us are spending way more time in our homes than we're accustomed to. In Normal Times you might keep walking past that streak on the wall in your kitchen and continue on to everything else. This year, there's nowhere to escape. Of course, the trouble with this is that housework like email can expand to fill all available space consequently this year in particular. We need to figure out how spring clean without consuming all our time. It will probably not surprise you that I. Think this calls for getting organized instead of just grabbing a spray bottle and paper towels, and going for it, or as one friend of mine posted on social media, rage, cleaning and Throwing her family's dirty dishes in the trash make a list of projects that will have the most impact. These are actual discrete projects. Maybe it's finally putting away all the junk on your stairs or kitchen island, or maybe it's wiping all the streaks off the windows I. Don't know but make a list and then next to each item state. What done looks like? The kitchen island is done when everything is off of it, except for maybe a centerpiece and the counter is wiped down. If you're talking window cleaning count how many windows you have! If you have twenty windows, this project is done when twenty windows are clean, or maybe you break it into upstairs downstairs windows. Nee May, object that housework is ongoing, which is true. There's an old phrase that house work is never done. But most households that have at least some system for the ongoing stuff. Eventually you empty the dishwasher and take out the trash. Spring cleaning is better focused on the other stuff. That isn't part of routine household maintenance so ideally. These projects can in fact be done. At least until some point, a little farther in the future then tomorrow. Anyway make your list ask any other household members for feedback. They may wish to add projects. They may decide that some projects aren't necessary in which case probably they should take on different projects. Divvy them up, ideally based on who? Volunteers. If you are often the task faster in your house, you can win people over by noting that this is the list you are all agreeing to it, which means that you won't suddenly appear later, telling someone to turn off the video games and go wash the windows. Then assigned times for getting these projects done. You have to know your household here. Some families do best taking a few designated hours on a Saturday. Others do best letting people choose the time as long as it is done by Sunday night at eight PM. But with a limited list. You can start seeing progress quickly. Yes. The House may not wind up looking like something out of a magazine. But with all of you living in their twenty four seven. That's unlikely to be the end result anyway. If! You choose a few projects and focus your efforts. They will get done. And then you can relax and enjoy your free time to. If you have a system for spring cleaning. I'd love to hear about it. You can let me know at before. Breakfast podcast at IHEARTMEDIA DOT COM. In the meantime. This is Laura. Thanks for listening and here's to making the most of our time. Hey everybody.

It's that easy, so visit apartments DOT COM and get into a new rental today. APARTMENTS DOT COM, the most popular place to find a place. Welcome to before breakfast a production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to learn the names of any plants or birds or other animals that you see frequently. Giving, names to the physical landscape and its inhabitants can help you feel more connected to nature and see your backyard or the parks near your home in an all new way. I took a botany class in high school that involved traveling to parks all over my home state of Indiana. I learned the names of various plants like wild columbine with delicate red flowers, the skunk cabbage that grows in swampy soil and how to recognize a beech tree. Basically if you see a tree with initials carved into it while you're on a walk in the woods. That's probably a beech tree. The smooth bark seems to attract this. Now whenever I spot these plants while I'm on a walk. It feels like I'm seeing old friends. I met them in high school. And here we are together now. Of course as a high school botany student, I didn't learn too many names. But these days there's a quick way to identify any plant. I recently downloaded these. Seek up to my phone. That's S. E. K., you let it access your camera and the APP will identify any plant. This was really helpful on a recent family height when we figured out what was poison ivy before stepping in it. But it's also really fun to figure out that those white flowers by my mailbox. Our summer snow drops or that. The poofy purple flowers are chives. Just, as knowing people's names helps us feel connected to them. Knowing names of things in nature helps us feel more at home there. This is true for more things than plants. I'm working on identifying the birds in my backyard, so when I hear a song in the morning, I know who's singing? Knowing the names of insects helps which are beneficial and can be greeted as friends. Walking into a park or backyard becomes something like going to a party. Where you know everybody, it's so much more fun. So today, stop and figure out the name of that beautiful plant or tree. You always see. If an APP doesn't work. Post a picture on social media. Someone will know and help. And then you can greet your new acquaintance properly. In the meantime, this is Laura.

Track your habits

"This is a message from our sponsors. Serve pro as America begins to reopen. We have a new sense of what it means to feel safe in the spaces where we gather serve. Pro is committed to bringing a higher standard of clean to those places with certified serve proclained. If you see the certified proclaimed sticker on the front door of businesses in your community, you'll know the nation's number. One choice in cleanup and restoration was there. Call one eight hundred serve pro or visit certapro dot com franchises are independently owned and operated. Welcome to before breakfast a production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is law. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to try tracking your habits. Checking in each day on whether you've done what you intend to do can be a helpful tool and achieving your goals. Habit tracking has a long history. founding father and self-improvement enthusiast been Jamin Franklin famously created a list of thirteen virtues such as frugality, moderation and temperance in his autobiography Franklin describes the habit tracker. He created as a way to visualize his progress. Each week he drew a grid his new book with a column, devoted to each virtue in the evenings he considered whether or not he had upheld each virtue over the course of the day. He filled out the grid for that day accordingly. Now despite my admiration for Franklin, I will say that his virtues were a wee bit vague. I think many of us would benefit from tracking more specific habits, really behaviors. Maybe it's keeping your daily spending under a certain amount. Maybe it's reading to your children for twenty minutes watering plants or walking ten thousand steps. All of these sound more than just temperance, but vaguer not Franklin's grid provides a lot of inspiration. Whether you use a paper note booklet Franklin Excel. spreadsheet or an APP have tracking can help. Keep you on track. I think this happens for a few reasons. First Habit tracking can help to increase the frequency of desired behavior, simply because the act looking at your tracker. Each day may remind you to do it. Second a habit tracker can motivate you to start and continue a habit streak. Let's say you want to write at least five hundred words every day. After a few days of adhering to this habit, they'll start to see a chain of check marks and your habit tracker. This can be extremely motivating, and you can make a game out of seeing how long a streak you can maintain. Third tracking helps us visualize how often we do things, and by giving us hard data, we can take some of the worry and emotions out of things. People are in general bad at estimating how often they perform certain behaviors. This problematic estimation can lead to broad pronouncements like I'm always on email or I never play with my kids. But by putting hard data down every day, you can gain a more objective perspective. This can provide a surprising level of comfort and reduce guilt. You may be on email a lot, but you are not always on email. Are Maybe you feel you. Don't call your parents often enough. That behavior. You may realize that you actually speak to them on the phone far more often than you thought you see you. Call them twice a week and you'd like to call them three times a week. So you just mindfully pick up the phone a little more often than you would. Success. Now I would suggest limiting how many tablets track. Even Benjamin Franklin knew that focusing on too many habits at once would be overwhelming. He chose to focus closely on one of his virtues. Rotating through the entire list four times per year. Similarly it can be helpful to choose a shortlist of habits to track for a designated period of time maybe a week, maybe a month. When that period is up. You can review your data and decide if you'd like to track the same habits again or change things up. Try filling out your habit tracker at the same time each day, maybe before bed and enjoy watching how your behavior changes or for the good stuff remain steady. I'm sure Benjamin. Franklin would have a great aphorism to describe this feeling, but I'll just say that progress is motivational. A page full of check marks will nudge on to great fix. In the meantime. This is Laura.

Fraud Rocks China's Hottest Coffee Startup

"Over the past decade investment in Chinese startups has surged to record highs and last year, one of the hottest names and the Chinese startup world was a company called Lufkin coffee. lucking coffee is an OP star Chinese coffee chain, the set out to disrupt the business of selling coffee in China. Gene Young has been following the story of luck in. The company was built around a mobile APP that handed out discounts and made it easy for customers to place orders for delivery or pick up. That model sent the company surging to a twelve billion dollar. Valuation in less than three years. It was a high-flying starter. Backed to by. A bevy of life well known investors from China and the US, so he's got pretty global base, and they see this as an incredible gross story. You know a simple business selling coffee with a innovative by easily understandable model. And then earlier this year. All those well known investors realized that some of that growth wasn't real. Luck in disclosed it had fabricated. Half of its sales, last year. Is probably the most blatant and audacious fraud by public listed company in Grayson history. Very. Few people saw coming. And now a wall. Street Journal Investigation has revealed the details of that scheme. Details include fake coffee orders, fake supply orders, and even a fake employees. Welcome to the journal our show about money, business and power I'm Caitlyn bought. It's Friday June twelfth. Coming up on the show, the fraud behind one of China's fastest growing companies, and what it could mean for the future of investing in international startups. This. Episode of the Journal is brought to you by T mobile for business, T., mobile and sprint are joining forces to power your business in more places than ever across the country visit t mobile for business dot COM to learn more. Roar. When luck was founded in two thousand seventeen, it targeted an emerging coffee market in China. Where is a traditional et drinking population? In China there's also growing affluence growing middle class, and there is opportunity there. To get these consumers to like coffee. Lukens main competitor was starbucks. STARBUCKS had worked to establish a taste for coffee in China for about two decades. Luck in wanted to build on that and overtake starbucks. So luck and built a chain that looked a lot like starbucks, premium coffee, beans, fancy espresso, machines and award-winning Baristas. But. The company also fashioned itself as a tech startup built around a mobile APP where customers order pay for their coffee drinks. You can order anytime anywhere on your APP and you either decide to pick up at the store, which is close to you or delivery, which will get to door within thirty minutes. Even when you're ordering coffee at a cafe, you have to use the APP because there. No cashiers at London's cafes. A lot of them tend to be smaller and tend to be manned by very few staff fly sometimes may meet just one or two staff. This was London's big bet that by using only at based transactions in opening smaller cafes, it could provide the same premium. Drink has starbucks with less overhead. That helped, the company undercut starbucks with huge discounts. Through the mobile APP luck would send customers promotions for free coffee or deeply discounted drinks, and they wanted to make coffee affordable, Chinese consumers, they believe that one of the reasons that Chinese consumers have not really got into coffees because these expensive. There were constant discounts. Pushing, to APP at various levels so either. Thirty percent of some seventy percent off and you come by. Which is on actually type of coffee of Chinese consumers, really like you can buy a cup of Allante for less than two dollars after the discounts about one third of the price of similar drink starbucks. Just seven months after started, it had opened more than five hundred cafes. Many of those cafes were opened near a starbucks starbucks. Newest rival in China chain called lock in underpricing starbucks by twenty-five percent, joining us the pillar of growth for starbucks better hope that this is not a huge level of competition. starbucks tried to keep up with London's expansion. A competing delivery service. But luck and kept raising money to keep pressure on its rival with rounds of fundraising that eventually valued the company in the billions of dollars. And then last year luck and hit a new kind of milestone. It went public on the Nasdaq stock market. With underwriting from big name investment banks including Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley. It took the company less than two years to go from funding to IPO is incredibly fast, and the stock jumped one and twenty percent on the first trading day it was a huge moment for the company in New York London's chairman and co-founder Charles Lou, high five colleagues on the first day of trading, and that was the start of a new period of growth. The. Company had build a network of more than four thousand and five hundred stores end of last year, overtaking the number of starbucks coffee shops in China. As the number of stores grew luck and reported surging revenues in the third quarter of last year, the company announced its sales increased five times from the year before and by January luck and stock price hit an all-time high. Then, short-selling investment firm called muddy waters announced that it was betting against the future of luck in. The. Firm released a report suggesting luck was inflating sales numbers. Luck denied the claims and some of the big name banks that underwrote its IPO issued research reports defending the company. But the timing of the muddy waters report was not good for London that was around the time that locking saw deters. About to do their annual audits. Discovered that a number of the companies in management personnel had engaged in fabricated transactions. In, April luck reversed its earlier denial and announced publicly that the company's revenue for most of two thousand nineteen wasn't what it seemed. It turned out that half of the sales from the second to fourth quarter last year will fabricated. How much is that? That's three hundred and ten million dollars. That's a lot of coffee. If, they really sold it yes. How can faked three hundred ten million dollars worth of coffee sales? After the break.

T mobile for business. Visit T mobile for business. Dot Com to learn more. Welcome back. When luck and admitted to fabricating at Sales Numbers, the company didn't reveal many details, but the Wall Street Journal's investigation started to figure out how Logan's fake transactions worked. It started out just before the IPO with employees using individual cell phone numbers to buy coffee vouchers. But then the scheme escalated moving into the corporate sales program. Typically look and sold large bulk or of coffee vouchers to a few regular corporate clients places like airlines in credit card lenders so that those businesses could offer free coffee to their customers as perks. But then some other companies also started placing bulk or Based on locking internal company documents, I obtained and sources I spoke to. We found that there are dozens of Leeann companies across China very nondescript that had bought. Large amounts of coffee vouchers from the company and these orders also sometimes occur being numb numbers hours like. Overnight hours. The registration records for these mysterious companies show that many of them had ties to London's Chairman Charles. Lou through his friends family previous business associates. One company was registered with a luck an email address. And the orders being placed by these companies were huge. They would often come in very large volumes. One Company would place an order of more than one hundred thousand dollars worth of coffee vouchers in one single order. The same company would come back again and again and make more than a hundred such purchases in a few months time. How many cups of coffee did it suggest? These companies were ordering? It must have been in the range of tens of millions of cops, so was luck in actually making any of this coffee that they were issuing vouchers for based on my reporting now. These fake voucher sales were just half of the scheme. They brought money in, but money was also going out luck, and was making suspicious payments to more than a dozen suppliers, many of which also had ties to London's chairman. Those supply orders helped luck and create a paper trail to show that it had so many coffee orders in needed to buy more supplies. And, the fake supply orders were executed by one employee in particular. There is a junior employees in lucking procurement department coddling loan. She in the space of a few months, protest over one hundred forty million dollars payments to this supplies. That is a lot of work for anybody working in procurement. Andy turns out the according to sources I talked to. She's fictitious what she does not exist. She's not a real person. Has Not provided any explanation as to why. Some of his employees's. committed. The fraud. What I would say. Is that in general? It is in the company's management and shareholders interest to keep the company stocks price high. And accompanies sought. Price will rise if he shows to investor. Is Business was doing great. Authorities in the US and China have launch probes into luck. Luck told the journal that it is cooperating with authorities wall, continuing an internal investigation. The company said he couldn't comment on any specific details because of its ongoing investigation. Chairman. Charles Lou issued a public statement last month, saying that he quote by no means set out to deceive investors. What has the reaction on Wall Street been? To the revelation that there were these fabricated sales. It was a bombshell. Shares of luck and coffee have fallen massively since the company disclosed an internal investigation. That's pushing the stock down. This is correct, seventy four and a half percent this morning, serious loss of trust on wall. Street for company that by the way was really very well loved by investors at sized. And in the weak sense, things have only gotten worse for Lookin'. The company's market value is less than one billion dollars now. Compared to the heyday when he was about twelve billion dollars. Wow, that's quite the collapse it is. This collapsed didn't happen to just any company. This was a buzzy startup backed by major American investors which raises the question. How did such a brazen scheme? Go unnoticed. It's a question that us. Investors have been particularly concerned about so what happened with locking kind of exposed? An issue that has been bothering investors for a long time. How do you regulate? Chinese companies listed in the US regulators in the US. Don't have the authority to look at the financial records of Chinese companies, even those that list on us. Stock Exchanges, which limits regulators ability to safeguard investors from possible fraud. What has happened recently is that there has been growing pressure on the US government and lawmakers to do something. About about how to regulate Chinese companies listed in the US. Last month the Senate passed legislation that would kick Chinese companies off. US Stock Exchanges, unless their audits are inspected by US regulators. The bill awaits vote in the House. But whatever ends up happening with regulations in the US remains clear that a lot of investors in both the US and China bought into a story. That may have been too good to be true. The basically duped a lot of bride and smart people. And raises very big question. Is the way way invest in startups these Siro enough. Is there anything more industrial or bank? All or anyone concerned could've done in the due diligence process. It's ver- typical in the situation of a hotly sought after start up. A lot of times investor may not even have time to do proper due diligence. They are more worried about missing the boat. About missing the ticket aboard the next or Unicorn, then thinking about going to the numbers and the legitimacy of the business. That's all for today Friday June twelve.

The Coming Wave of Small-Business Layoffs

"Chris Dodd is proud of the fruit guys. The fruit delivery business founded twenty two years ago. He's so proud so happily. Get into a full body banana costume to tell you about it. Hi, I'm Chris. You may know me from such workplace safety videos as how not to slip on your banana peel but I'm not here to talk to you about that today. I'm here to tell you. The fruit guys story. The fruit guys stories started in a small San, Francisco apartment were Chris packed boxes of fresh fruit and delivered them to office workers. In the years since he's built the fruit guys into a one hundred sixty three person company. He says they're very close knit. It is a family amongst itself in terms of the people that we have in the business. There's a woman who had been working for me for twelve years, and she was a friend that I met in the Co op nursery school. We've raised our kids in so yeah, this is very personal. But when the pandemic closed offices and schools, the places that by his fruit, Kris found himself in a painful position. Having to put his guys family on furlough. We were trying to save business and trying to say what do we do? There's no way out of this. Then in May, Chris got nearly one point seven million dollars from the government. That helped him bring all the staff. You'd furloughed back to work. But after two months that lifeline ran out. And now Chris and many small business owners across the country are making tough decisions. They thought they'd behind the. Welcome to the Journal our show about money business empower I'm Caitlyn bought? It's Thursday July twenty third. Coming up on the show why small business layoffs are happening now? Even after the government spent over five hundred billion dollars to save those jobs. This episode of the Journal is brought to you by T mobile for business, T., mobile and sprint are joining forces to power your business in more places than ever across the country visit t mobile for business dot Com to learn more. When the shutdown happened, millions of small businesses across the country felt an immediate hit, and that was a major problem, because small businesses employ nearly sixty million people, small businesses are such a crucial part of the economy, according to the Census Bureau account for nearly half of private sector employment, our colleague. Mirim okay has been covering small business and she says with so many jobs on the line. Congress stepped in to help by creating a massive relief program. The paycheck protection program. The name probably implies the point was to help small businesses. Keep their workers employed. And, so the idea was, you could take out a loan. That would be forgivable eventually. If. You maintained your pre pandemic levels of employment. Or if you had already laid off workers if you brought them back and this program called, the P. was designed to be temporary, so the idea was that the program would be a bridge to help small businesses get through what lawmakers at the time were expecting to be a short-term downturn followed by. Steep recovery what we call a v-shaped recovery so a very fast steep decline in activity followed by swift rebound. And you could see that. That was the expectation because originally. Congress gave businesses just eight weeks to accrue those expenses that they could then apply towards forgiveness. So really it was designed for roughly two months of payroll and these other expenses that we're talking about. Two months of payroll might not sound like much of a lifeline, but for a lot of small businesses. This was huge because most of them don't have much cash reserve like Chris. The Fruit Guy. It'll think people understand often when you're a small business or your self funded business. Everything is on the line like there's no backing from investors that we turn to. Everything that drives. The business is basically backed up by. Our House and everything that we've built over twenty two years. That's the way it works so in the PCP came online. Chris rushed to apply, but so did everyone else. Demand for the program was so high. Many small business owners got locked out on that first round of funding including Chris. He remembers getting the news that he didn't get P money. I feel this horrible sickness in my stomach like a Puke, and I'm not sleeping at nights and I'm awake. Two hours is just rolling. Thinking about what is coming, know talking to my wife and my kids about. Their asking questions or obviously seeing everything and I'm like. Yeah, this could be it. This might be the end of this. This may go away like I say. It's kind of like scene out of the princess bride, where like Wesley, tell you the story of saying yeah, the dread pirate. Roberts would say good night Wesley like so may have to kill you in the morning. I. Don't think I've ever experienced anything quite as extremists in my professional grew. Good Work Sleep well most kill you in the morning. I'm so glad that the princess bride is like you're. What you're relating to this moment. But then the fruit guys got a break, Congress put more funds into the P. and in the second round Chris got the money. With it he was able to bring back all his employees from furlough at full pay. According to the programs rules he had eight weeks to spend the money and Chris thought that would be enough time to keep his business going until offices started ordering fruity. This early May we were still hearing from some customers that they thought they'd be back in June July and so we're going okay great. This money's GonNa get us. They're like we got a weeks. If companies are gonNA, come back by the June then. We're good, you know we think that. At least we got a shot dread pirate. Roberts isn't going to kill. You isn't GonNa kill me right right? Sleep well Wesley Right in early, may there was reason to be optimistic around the country. New cases of Covid were going down, and states were starting to reopen. The PPO had helped many small businesses. Keep their staff. A recent study estimated that the program may have saved more than two million jobs. But when Chris Brown staff back, and he asked them to do some customer outreach, he started hearing a different message, and we called one hundred percent of our customers, thousands and thousands of customers over the eight week period, and we talked to them, and what we learned was that seventy percent of those customers. They didn't know they'd be coming back to work or how it were. Seventy percent of Chris's customers didn't know when they'd be his customers again and Chris only had a few weeks of his PP money left. He started to realize something terrible. The money that was supposed to be a bridge to the other side of this crisis. was turning into a bridge to nowhere. That's after the break.

T MOBILE FOR BUSINESS VISIT T mobile for business. Dot Com to learn more. By the end of June Chris is hope that his business could quickly get back to normal had vanished, so had his PP money, and that sick feeling in his stomach was back. The hardest decisions for me are always about people I mean. I know very deeply like so many of the folks in the business cows affects them, but the numbers are the numbers right and like you know there's only a certain amount of revenue. We have in the business right now, and we can only make that work at a certain way. With no lifeline left Chris did the thing he'd avoided doing back in April. He laid off half his staff about eighty. People know furloughs this time. And what did it mean for you personally that you had to lay off workers and it's just horrible. This is definitely like a village of people, and that's been very difficult. It One of the things I've been most difficult ISM is actually the generosity of the people that have worked. You know that worked for me that in the layoff. They were worried about me right. They're like. I'm so sorry this is affecting you this way. I'm like talking about you don't like. I'm lay you off in so so that's been part to To do. Not just the fruit guys as more businesses run out of their P P funds. They're facing wrenching decisions. After avoiding layoffs up to this point, the running out of options, here's a Amira the National Federation of Independent Business. Which is this small business advocacy group has asked its members about this and in a recent survey, nearly a quarter of respondents said they anticipated having to lay off workers when their money ran out, or they already had because they're pby money had ran out. And so in our reporting, we talked to several businesses who had either laid off workers or done some sort of cut in hours to deal with the fact that they no longer have the PPO money to rely on. And at the same time Cova cases. In parts of the country are starting to rise again. What effect does that have on these businesses? We looked at data from home base, which provides like scheduling and time management to businesses, and we saw the number of workers working. Pick up in like early June, but then as we started this, the resurgence of cases in many parts of the country that started to pull back in late June and that has continued into July this shows. That the uptick in cases poses a threat to the overall economic recovery, and within that the ability of small businesses themselves to recover. I, just think about like this. P P P program was meant to be a bridge, but on the other side of this bridge the land. The economy isn't there to meet them and so. We've sort of been supporting. something. But we can't. Help it land. This is what the business owners have told us until the public health crisis is under control in a way that makes people feel truly comfortable going out again. Things attending shows doing all these things, these little things that drive our economy, the outlook is uncertain and then the PP money ending meant they didn't necessarily have the financial flexibility to continue employing. Workers at the levels that they were. So. Will Congress step in again and provide more aid well? Congress is back in Washington this weekend they are. Starting to negotiate on this. Treasury Secretary Steven. MNUCHIN has signalled in the past that he would support further aid for small businesses, but he's kind of talked about it as sort of wanting to do it in a more targeted fashion, so the paycheck protection program was this really broad program that any business that generally speaking was under five hundred employees could tap. So, he's kind of talked about it. As in the next round, let's do something targeted to maybe the smallest of the small businesses, or maybe the small businesses in the industries that have been most impacted by this crisis. So it remains to be seen what further aid comes for small businesses. I think both business owners and economists will say it's clear at this point that PPP. Was Not enough because it was designed with a shorter crisis in mind. And because the crisis has endured much longer than anyone originally anticipated is just not enough. Today the government reported one point four million people filed for unemployment last week. That was an increase from the week before and the first time. The number has gone up in nearly four months. Chris has given up the idea of a quick recovery, and also on the idea that his business after the crisis. Look anything like the business he had before. We're now planning for saying. How do we survive the next two years? All the things that we've built over twenty two years have to now be adapted in order to be in that environment. Chris's moving as fast as he can. He's started some new initiatives for remote workers like fruit tasting experiences over zoom and home deliveries. And he says there is one thing that's driving him. Bringing back all those workers. He's just laid off. My HR director has every single name and address and email and phone on list. In this we recover. We remake the business. People be hitting phone calls. The only thing that will determine success for me instead I can go back to each one of those people and offer them a job That's all for today.

Our colleague Jim Carlton is a reporter based on the West Coast there were peaceful demonstrations during the day marches vigils, but then as nightfall the protest which kind of get centered in the Capitol Hill district near the Seattle Police East precinct.

I talked medic who actually is a volunteer at these protests on the side of the protesters got a big Red Cross and his told me about all the injuries that they had to treat burns to is rubber bullet wounds? So, it was very very violent like every night, so tear gas going into people's homes. There were store owners. Complaining was hurting businesses. And, so there was negotiations you know trying to defuse the tensions, not only between protesters and police, but also with the Mayor Jenny Durkan. Eventually the mayor moved to end the confrontations. She ordered the police in that area to abandon their police station. And when the cops left, the protesters moved in. The protesters crossed out the name police and they wrote in people. The Seattle police departments east precinct. This been rename Seattle People Department. But people are not police. The protesters declared the six blocks around the station and autonomous zone, run by the people and free of police. Welcome to the journal our show about money, business and power I'm Caitlyn Ball. It's Monday June fifteenth. Coming up on the show inside Seattle's autonomous zone, where black lives matter, protesters are pushing for change in the most dramatic way yet. This episode of the Journal is brought to you by T.

At the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone known affectionately as Chaz is in the Capitol Hill. Arts and entertainment district about a mile. From the city's downtown area is physically cover new city occupied by black lives matter protesters. Protesters took control of this area last Monday, and since then they've been continuously occupying those six blocks. I was actually pretty nervous about going in there. Because you've heard all the reports of Canada's confrontations, looting, a reporter is getting roughed up by both police and protesters actually very nervous, and I went in there, and you see these orange barricades, and I was expecting some kind of checkpoint. You have to show an idea. I had my press badge ready, and all that and basically they didn't even really pay attention to me. I just walked in and my impression was. Straight Party. There's people doing chalker to walk. There's a giant black lives matter in the middle of the street. The letters like nineteen feet long so gigantic and artists were like painting inside each slot. You know so very very colorful. Restaurant, there's a place called Bravo's Taco people lineup for burritos and tacos. There's a park. The lights are on almost like there'd be a soccer game, and there's people in little groups with a speaker down by one in the park and they're. They're doing speeches on anti-racism etc.. What would you compare it took? This reminds me. Some of occupy. Movement are burning man without techy Bros... The Anti Racism Anti Police. Brutality theme was everywhere. You see the black lives matter signs you see anti-trump signs. Speakers are talking on a bullhorn about we need to rise up. We need to defend the police department we need to. Look other list of demands, they WANNA revolution. I don't think they want peace. No changes they want a lot of change. Some protesters came up with a list of demands and have been negotiating with the city over them, probably number one demand to defend the police department. And by de-fund, not necessarily abolished. Please ferment, but to take away like half their money. They want half the money that the Seattle Police Department gets now. They want to go to the community. You know the black community in particular say want other things. They wanted to America resign. They want the police station to be turned into a community center. They want gone to say that once. These demands are then they will in the occupation. has there been progress in what the protesters are negotiating for with the city, they are making progress in their demands. Mayor Darcom is already in the council already considering taking one hundred million dollars and redirect into the community, so I mean I. think that is in direct result of this kind of pressure. From the protest movement, they definitely are trying to meet some of their commands. The city wants to reduce the size of the occupied area, so that ambulances and other emergency vehicles can get through, but in some ways the protesters aims go beyond that of demands, a think also what the protesters are trying to prove with Chaz is that there's a fundamentally new way of policing communities without police without traditional police. They see the police is an occupation force, and they say the police station as kind of a symbol of that, and so they wanNA have more of a community. Where if there's a problem, then you have an expert. Go over and help out or a counselor counseling. How did you see that vision? Play out in the autonomous zone? So, I mean, for example, someone had set setup outdoor Furniture Sofa. Tables in talk about how we can. Esociety eliminate racism and particularly police violence against blacks in their words along the sidewalk. There's something called the dream board. And it's a like a bulletin board solar with hundreds of posted notes. Like Pink Blue Orange, and it says the question is what is it question you can ask about Anti Racism? Around the CAL Anderson Park. which has baseball fields, soccer fields you could see like tents were set up along the side. There's one tenth for free. You know facemask, sanitizer water. And then you'd go out into the street and there is a table for chaplains. If you WanNa, pray to God. There's some chaplains her and this one shop on cocktail. People just seem to really be. Happy to be here happy to to be helping their neighbors and fellow community members. There just doesn't seem to be filled with any sort of vitriolic. towards one another. It's just a a re imagination of what society and culture could be. He's white. He's very much sympathetic to the the issues that the black people have of the police, and so he was there to offer his kind of religious services and spiritual services he was. Almost euphoric, he was just so happy because he'd been there. For the violent protests in Houston, he was just so upset and heartbroken to see just hiding hiding, and so he was like really happy, and he's one guy who was saying. He wishes this could go on indefinitely. My hope is anyhow that this is. This is a new a new way of existing. You know I'm sure the weather will will deter some folks if if it if it lasts that long through the summer year, but I think this is this is a picture glimpse of what a what a new way of living could be so hopefully indefinitely. Did talk randomly. A couple of people who live in this area and said you know We don't want to go on forever, but I mean you know we. We like this better than the tear gas. We like this better than you know the fights and so they're actually relieved that the fighting was over more than anything else, but while the tear gas has stopped, fighting is still going on in the autonomous zone. That's after the break.

T MOBILE FOR BUSINESS DOT. Com to learn more. Warm Welcome combat. As Jim walked around the autonomous zone spoke with protesters. One thing became clearer. Nobody's in charge there, even arguing over the name I was walking around the park in their speakers. That will just talk about whatever they want. And there is a African American man and he up, and he said who picked the name Chaz anyway, and he's talking to maybe two or three hundred people sitting on the grass said. Did you pick Chaz in knowing knowing that's so? He proposed another name a different acronym Capitol Hill occupied protests chop. Then he did vote on it and like everybody. Cheers. We want that name, so they can't even agree on on the name disagreements. Go deeper than branding I was there during the day in the middle of a barricaded street in an African American woman named Bridget Allen came up with a couple of other people, and she started instructing them. We don't want barricades. Barriers have been. Put on us all of our life and then when you see these barriers, we see these chain link fence. That doesn't resonate with us. We. Don't want barriers. That's the thing that we're trying to take down our barriers. So. Why would we want these here? That doesn't represent who we are just saying that she felt like. The black lives matter movement have been co-opted. The the antiracism. ISSUE TO BE CO opted. to be taken over our narrative, and this is our time to speak. We need action items, and we need someone to take leadership. I don't see anything being done. I just see more spectacle, and this spectacle is taking over our message. How do you think Brigitte's comments fit? Into the broader protest movement within Seattle. The black lives matter movement is so big you have LGBTQ. She has an environmentalist you have. Come against capitalism. You have a civil rights. I mean you have a lot of groups so a little bit unwieldy, a little bit disorganized I think because you have so many different players involved, and that's what we're seeing in Seattle. With so many different factions, there are competing ideas about what the protesters should be asking for. And because of that there are questions about when and how the protesters will hand the area back to the city. How do you see this ending? There's really only a few options to either MT peacefully or not. You know so obviously if it doesn't easily asked me about. I think the city is GonNa. Do everything they can to empty sleep because I think that the people there are so committed to them. It's like a war and I think that Seattle is. I have to believe that they really want to resolve this situation and I think they really want to yoga the protesters as much as they can to go back to some sense of normalcy in Seattle, and that's what they're negotiating right now, but I mean there's a peaceful way to end this and they could take it over the middle of the night and I think if they did that. That would just start a whole new round problems. Both sides are trying. Things have been tried before and I think the fact that the city Seattle just turned over entire neighborhood to protesters in a police station says a lot. You don't see that every day, but this could be part of the tipping point where. Things like Chaz. Maybe this is what it takes for. Some of these police llamas to fundamentally change.

If you want to know what really made exceptional, people tick, then take listen to personality. Find Personality on March ninth on the iheartradio APP on Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome to before breakfast a production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to work close to the bottom line. When you're faced with multiple priorities in must determine where to direct your time. Focused on the tasks that will bring in revenue, boost, profits, or otherwise produce immediate benefits. These tasks will buy you space in the future for other things. Listeners often tell me that they have trouble figuring out what tasks to work on I. If your boss has given you. Assign moment and has said that that should be your top priority well great. But what if your boss has given you six projects well? Yes, you eventually need to work on all of them, but we never know when emergencies will arise if your office loses power at eleven am. You'll be better off having gotten to some of these tasks versus others. This is the genius of the rule to work close to the bottom line, particularly in a monetary context. When you look at your meeting schedule and see that a client wants to meet about, follow up work at the same time that normally have a weekly check in for an ongoing project. Well, maybe you can delegate the check in. The client meeting is more likely to boost revenue. Similarly if determined that you are overpaying for supplies, a few calls to negotiate, that should take precedence over cleaning out your inbox. Cutting. Costs boost profits again the bottom line. And you don't actually need to be pursuing profits per se to work close to the bottom line. Nonprofit organizations need higher revenue and lower costs like anyone else, so the same rules apply. Suppose you're fundraiser for a nonprofit and your boss has asked you to write a letter for the donor newsletter, and also to submit a grant proposal to a major foundation. That recently visited your organization. The grant proposal could result in significant funding for your organization. It's close to the bottom line. Is An article for the newsletter valuable Mo- probably, but its impact is less immediate unless direct, so unless you've been given explicit instructions otherwise better to handle the grant proposal I Then after that submitted, turn your attention to the article. The bottom line isn't always strictly monetary. Sometimes, it's an immediately valuable outcome of another sort. For example, you might be faced with doing reference checks for an applicant. Your organization wants to hire. This is the last step before making the offer and bringing the person on board. You may also need to develop goals than a dashboard for the upcoming quarter. Both are important for sure. But the reference checks pave the way for immediate concrete benefits namely lettering. You hire this person that you want to hire. All the goals and dashboard in myriad other tasks on your to do list. We'll have an impact over time. Bring on the new higher, and he can help you with those tasks so direct your attention there, i. And I know, it's satisfying to cross items off our to do lists, but the downside of this is, we can get just as big a hit from crossing off order new folders versus call old client. WHO's budget just doubled. But clearly not all tasks are of equal value. When you're deciding what to do. Think about dollars, an immediate impact, the sort that will open up space in the future. Over time working close to the bottom line means we make faster progress toward our own and our organization's goals. Because we're accomplishing what matters most? In the meantime.

Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to think of progress when we're talking about relationships rather than basic tasks. Progress is motivational. Sadly the converse of that is also true. When progress is less obvious, it can be hard to feel motivated. Fortunately, there are some ways to recreate a sense of progress. No matter what kind of work we're talking about. Today's tip comes out of a question. I got from before breakfast listener who had recently left her job partly to spend more time caring for her daughter who is on the autism spectrum? The listener noted that her daughter was needing to interact with people more, and this was definitely challenging. She wrote she needs more support to cope with how exhausting! Is? The listener was also studying to pursue a new career as a chaplain. All of these are worthy endeavors, but as she noted I'm so used to measuring valuing my time by tasks finished. Parenting and researching are both. That are not task oriented I. Find Myself Struggling to measure progress and feeling unaccomplished after lots of time well spent. Do you have any tips for how to measure time and progress in these non task oriented settings. It's a good question. The nature of parenting or for that matter being a chaplain is to spend a lot of time with people simply being available to them. The quantity of time is a key part of the job. And while we contract time and I recommend tracking time, the outcome of being available is not always clear. One of the things that people who decide to be fulltime parents most struggle with. Is this transition from turning in a report at the end of the day to getting to the end of the day and wondering what actually got done? This can make it hard to stay motivated. But I think we can create concrete tasks within these sorts of time that allow us to feel a sense of progress and motivation. Yup It's quality time within the quantity time. I've been thinking about this a lot lately. As all five of my children have been home with me for the past two months. I know that theoretically this extra time together can allow us to deepen our relationships, but so much of the time is just managing chaos, keeping the five year old from breaking things in between feeding the baby, and keeping the other children I'm hurting each other. So to keep my sanity, I've come up with distinct projects. Each of us can do together. I'm sure that simply spending time together is more important in the long run, but keeping mum motivated is important, too. So we've ordered a bunch of Legos I. recently finished a whole rocket launching the ten year old plus a farm set with the five year old. My twelve year old has become my writing accountability partner. He's writing a novel and we check in with each other on how many words we've done in our creative projects. My eight year old daughter and I are taking a grownup dollhouse project not for playing in for building and enjoying the miniature scenes. Even. The baby can have some projects. We've been reading through all the old of baby bug magazine that have kept from previous children. I know that it doesn't particularly matter that I'm reading. A child focused magazine versus the dictionary with the baby, but it makes mom feel better that yes, I read through two issues, today and due to issues tomorrow and so forth. If you likewise are looking for ways to stay motivated and relationship work. You might try setting some particular tasks that you can do and then celebrate completion. A chaplain for instance might set goals for numbers and types of visits and follow ups and particular passages to read or spiritual exercises to do when it feels appropriate. Sure the main point is being there and listening and offering comfort. But we can create tasks for ourselves within that. Our Listener, who wants to support her daughter with social interaction might set goals for how to handle welcoming her home from school or sending her off to school or planning activities on the weekends that might gently introduce certain social interactions. She can note her progress and celebrate what she's done. Quantity and quality time are often presented as being in opposition, but really relationships are made up of both. A lot of the real work is done in the quantity. But the quality part. Keeps US motivated. And that's a good in its own right. In the meantime. This is Laura.

J well indepth and unfiltered conversations with celebrities activists athletes and influences. We'll cover topics. We're curious about topics I guess are passionate about and topics. Many of us are just too afraid to talk about. I get past the fluff to what we go there and it's fun pretty crazy and very revealing listen to. Let's be real with Sammy on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcast. Welcome to before breakfast. A production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to stop wasting time and mental energy ruminating over useless feedback in other words how to keep criticism from stinging. I WanNa say that constructive feedback is a real gift. Someone can be mean and nasty but if that person gives you practical suggestions for how to improve something that matters to you. You're best off thanking the person you don't have to be friends but you can be grateful that said not all feedback is constructive. I was thinking of this recently when I got a letter from before breakfast listener. Who LEADS THE CHURCH? This minister lost a close family member. Shortly before Christmas. It was too late to find someone else to lead all the holiday services so the minister did so well deep in grief then she received a note from a prisoner who knew about the death saying that her holiday preaching was sub par. Ouch in this situation. The listener knew that this criticism wasn't really fair but as she reminisced about it. She wondered looking forward if there was a way to spend less mental energy worrying about such criticism. I think this is a good goal but not just for criticism we should also spend less mental energy seeking out unhelpful. Praise over the years. I've had a number of people read my books before publication to see if they flag issues that I can't see I always tell them that I love it and I hate. It are equally unhelpful. Even if as a human being I vastly prefer hearing the former instead. I want to know things like I stopped reading in the middle of chapter two because these points seem too repetitive. That's good too now. We can control ourselves too much to seek out praise just as we can make shortsighted moves to avoid criticism better to decouple our self esteem from both instead. I think that unhelpful criticism or praise can best be kept in context by drowning it with a high volume of helpful feedback the more feedback. You get the more you can see that not. Everyone thinks ex but a lot of people do think. Why would you hadn't even considered you can evaluate all of it without assigning too much weight. Anyone bit of it you can see which feedback resonates most strongly with you and figure out a way to deal with critical feedback in a way that feels authentic in the ministers case. I suggested identifying a handful of thoughtful church members who could commit to providing feedback on her sermons. Every week. I also suggested inviting some skilled retired preachers to visit her church frequently and provide feedback as well. The higher the volume. The more the random feedback from grumpy people can be taken for what it is. If you find yourself thinking for days about unhelpful criticism you might think about how you can increase the volume of feedback. You receive as well. Can you show your work to a handful of colleagues? Can you enlist a few mentors to provide advice if you do public speaking? Can you try out new material? In front of smaller audiences. The goal is to have your feedback be somewhat like receiving a gift basket if someone gave you a box of chocolate covered cherries as a gift and you hated. Chocolate covered cherries. Well you might be a little bit miffed but when the Cherries are package with popcorn cheeses crackers truffles cookies and a bottle of wine. Well no big deal. You can find other things that you'd find worthwhile in there so it's all good. How do you keep unhelpful? Negative feedback in chat? You can let me know at before breakfast.

What's in your wallet? Credit APPROVAL REQUIRED CAPITAL ONE BANK USA in a welcome to before breakfast. A PRODUCTION OF I. Good morning this Laura. Welcome to their before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to make a conscious decision to do a just okay job on a few non critical tasks. You might be surprised. How much time and energy you can save. I'm sure most people listening to this. Podcast or the high-achieving sorts. We like to do things right. We pride ourselves on our high standards. Such diligence is admirable but part of wisdom is recognizing that there are only twenty four hours a day and not everything is deserving of our best work. This is common sense. The trick is figuring out when it is okay to lower your standards when can and should you drop the ball? This requires thinking about your time strategically the first thing. I'd recommend doing first thing I always recommend doing is tracking your time. Keep track of your time with an APP or a spreadsheet for a few days including at least one weekend day or ideally. You can track your time for an entire week. After you've got the data study your log and ask yourself what activities. Take more time then. You really wish to be devoting to them. Common culprits include work housework errands and time and transit particularly commuting. Some of these unfortunately are what they are. It's hard to lower your standards on your commute or your drive to your kid's school because you need to get from Point A. To point be some way or another but other categories are more malleable for instance within the category of work. You might see that you spend quite a bit of time on email or perhaps you find yourself. Rereading a weekly. Do you send your colleagues three times before you hit send. Perhaps he spent more than an hour per slide on presentations that now that you think about it no one pays close attention to anyway. Note which activities do not have a direct link to your organization's bottom line note. Which activities do not pertain to your long term goals note which activities won't matter in two days let alone in two years flag these activities on your time log then explore what it might mean to consciously decide to give these tasks an eighty percent effort. Eighty percent is still a B. on most grading scales. It's not a plus level but it's certainly acceptable. Could you cut the time devoted to these tasks by twenty percent? Or here's a way to think about it. Imagine that something. Huge came up next week could orbit. Your biggest client should up town unexpectedly and wanted to spend the day with you talking about future work or maybe your office shut down for two days because of an ice storm. What parts of these tasks would you skip? We've all had the experience of cutting corners when we had to and sometimes smart time management means cutting corners when we don't have to. I know this is easier said than done on some things. We WanNA keep our standards as high as possible with my books. I go through multiple drafts and fact. Check everything sometimes. Even hiring other people to fact check everything. I read every word allowed multiple times to make sure my pros sounds right. Being an author is a key part of my identity and I know that the whole point of a book is to create something that will still matter for years into the future but a spur of the moment blog. Post does not require the same attention to detail. I consciously decide to do one round of editing and then hit post if something needs to be updated later I can do so. I've been trying to do this on the Home Front to my husband and I welcome Dr Fifth Child in late December and through these newborn weeks. I wound up lowering my standards on just about everything else. The Christmas tree stayed up for a long time. The mail pile did not get sorted. The House is a bit cluttered. Oh well none of this will really matter in the long run or frankly in the short run either suspend some time today thinking about how you spend your time. Where could you settle for B. MINUS LEVEL EFFORT? Feel free to keep doing a plus work on anything that truly matters to you when it doesn't you can free up all kinds of time by doing just an okay job.

I everyone I'm Katie. Couric here to let you know that my podcast next question with me. Katie couric is back for. Its second season. I'll be diving into some big issues like this country's devastating maternal mortality rate. The rise of astrology and a little thing called the presidential election listened to next question. It comes out every Thursday on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your favorite shows. Welcome to before breakfast. A production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to make default decisions so you can quickly navigate the problem of having too many choices. I know that having too many choices sounds like the definition of a first world problem there are plenty of people out there whose lives are constrained by restrictions. They didn't choose and who struggled to meet their basic needs. But I'm guessing this is not the situation facing many listeners. This podcast we often face the opposite problem. How do we navigate the myriad choices we encounter daily without feeling stressed or regretful? About our decisions well choice. Seems like a good thing. Too much of it can take a toll in his book. The paradox of choice psychologist berry shorts explains that people can feel anxious at the prospect of making a choice and overwhelmed by all the options. Then we can feel regretful of decisions as we recall the options given up. This is all made worse because we feel responsible for the outcome having made the choice ourselves. So what are we to do? Shorts recommends choosing when to choose as he puts it rather than investing time and energy in every decision. We face figure out which ones weren't thoughtful deliberations for everything else. Go with a default option. And maybe this sounds challenging but it turns out that if you are an upstanding citizen you've probably already got default rules for a lot of things. Shorts gives the example of wearing a seat belt or not cheating on your partner. These are in fact choices but there are good enough reasons not to seriously entertain the alternative. That most of us don't spend a whole lot of time thinking about it. Turns out you can also make default decisions on many other things even if the consequences aren't so dire and lots of people have heard about the example of President Obama wearing only gray or blue suits by eliminating insignificant choices. He could focus on more important things if the situation called for it he'd wear something else but there had to be a good reason. Likewise maybe you can set mealtime defaults Turkey sausage and fruit for breakfast a green vegetable every lunch and dinner no alcohol during the week. It's also a good idea to have a good restaurant or two for work lunches and dinners when someone suggests meeting for a meal. You know exactly where to take the person and you know exactly what to order of. Course if there's a reason to switch from the default you can if you're entertaining vegetarian. Client for instance best to go to a restaurant with more than one veggie option but having a default means you can focus on preparing for the meeting rather than choosing a restaurant and you can focus on the mealtime conversation rather than the menu like President Obama. You could also choose defaults getting dressed if you love fashion. That's wonderful but for those of us who just WANNA look put together. Socially appropriate figure out what works and go with that for a normal business attire workplace. For example your default outfit might be a dress shirt black pants and black dress shoes your weekend. Daytime default might be sweater jeans and slip on low. I are flats. You might only by black leggings or running shorts so that you don't have to think about whether the color of your bottom half looks ridiculous with your exercise. Top defaults can help with your schedule to if Friday night is always date night you can have a babysitter who is scheduled every week rather than having to find a babysitter. Each time you decide to go out and did you can have defaults for just about anything. I love this example from before breakfast. Listener Jennifer. I work on a college campus with lots of parking. Lots she writes over the years. I have needlessly spent time walking around searching for my car at the end of the day last year I decided to park in the same parking lot each and every day this way. I don't forget where my car is parked and I don't have to put a reminder in my phone or think of another way to remember where my car is that day. At the end of the day I walked from wherever I am on campus to my car in my parking lot. It has taken one decision of list of daily decisions and has limited my aimless walking all over campus to find my car. What default decisions have you made? Are there areas of your life? You might be able to streamline with a default decision. I'd love to hear about it. You can reach me at before breakfast podcasts. At IHEARTMEDIA DOT com. In the meantime this is Laura.

Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to avoid a few email mistakes that can cost you a lot of time in the long run. Email is a relatively recent technology. Forty years ago, it was confined mostly to government and academic settings. Now it's ubiquitous shapes the way we spend our time. One study from a few years ago found that office workers spent twenty eight percent of their days on email, which is about eleven hours a week. All, that might not sound too bad. The problem is that people tend to check email frequently, meaning that all other time feels chopped up. With so much time devoted to email, you'd think people would be better at it, but we still make all kinds of mistakes. Today's episode is about a few rules that can help you be a better email citizen. I be careful who you copy. Before you, reply all or add a new person to a thread. Look at all the names on the email. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the chain to be sure that anything being forwarded is cool to forward to everyone listed. ASSUME NOTHING That person, your potential new clients CC'd might not be the clients assistant. It might be a competing vendor. Whose now got all your information because you hit, reply all. oops! Or maybe someone made an edgy joke, and then the email thread got turned into something else and then got forwarded to other folks. Who will not be amused by the humor? or at least won't understand the context. When in doubt. Delete. or start a new email chain. Second, don't use sarcasm without alerting people. Sarcasm and humor in general can be fun ways to bond person. They're also almost impossible to convey in the written word. One study found that whether people were emailing friends or strangers, the people receiving the emails or wildly inaccurate in determining what sarcastic and what was serious. This can go wrong and all sorts of ways. The person receiving your message might think you're being deliberately mean rather than making a joke. So don't be subtle. Either put in the word sarcasm or put a smiley face next to anything that should be interpreted lightly. If emojis don't feel right. then. Don't make your joke in the first place. Save it for the in person meeting when your comedy act as far more likely to shine. Third and a related point. Be More positive than you think is necessary. Email in general reads negatively. It's unclear why this is. Possibly when we talk in person We send reassuring nonverbal cues that the relationship matters, and we're not trying to be aggressive. But these cues are completely absent in the written form. That means that. If you right the way, you normally talk what you write. Be interpreted more harshly than if you're in person. So over the years I've learned to write the email naturally. Send then go back and make it look like it came from a happier bubbly version of Laura. Even a short greeting such as hope you had a great weekend tour I was so glad to hear from. You can go a long way toward making the emails. See more positive if you don't intend to flame someone. Finally. There's the question of when you're sending the email. The original genius of email was that it was a synchronous communication. I. Read an email at a time that works for me. You read and respond at a time that works for you. Alas we've now devolved into a situation where email is treated with the urgency of a phone call, but people email with prolificacy. They'd never manage on a telephone. In any case, this has some important ramifications. If, you're in management. You should understand that anyone who reports to you will feel like she should respond to. Your e mails as soon as possible. That's human nature. But maybe your email wasn't urgent. Maybe you're emailing at ten pm because you like to catch up on work after your kids go to bed. You Might WanNa. Save the email as a draft and send it out at eight am. You can also tell your employees that you generally don't expect them to respond at odd, hours. You'll call if you need them. Respect for boundaries means you'll have employees who are happier. And more recharged. So! How will you be more careful with your emails? It's worth the time to think it through. When we talk. The words are generally gone. But in email. Can last forever. Best to get it right. In the meantime. This is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time. Hey everybody. I'd love to hear from you.

Listen to permission to speak on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcast. Welcome to before breakfast. A production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to make your resources usable immediately. Do Whatever prep-work is necessary right away. So your resources can provide the value intending when you sought them out in other words. Wash the blueberries as soon as you get home from the grocery store. Perhaps you've noticed this same phenomenon that I have in my house. If we wash the blueberries as soon as we buy them and put them in an easily accessible bowl they get eaten. If we just shove them in the fridge door well. They often wind up spoiled and have to be thrown away. Now if you think about it this doesn't make a whole lot of sense. It doesn't take much time to pull out a handful of blueberries from Joran washed them. But somehow these extra steps become barriers to enjoying them just as a whole carrot seems much more intimidating to wash peel and slice versus grabbing a baby carrot or pre cut carrot stick said knowing this about ourselves we can commit to doing a little bit of prep work upfront or to spending the cash to have someone else do it. All were thinking about it with any resource build this prep-work into the acquisition step. While this does take a bit of extra effort it can be the difference between purchase being used and enjoyed or the purchase being completely wasted. There are lots of applications to this tip when you get new clothes. Cut off the tags Washer. Iron them if you need to and if there's something that needs to be altered ticket detailer right away. There is never going to be a better time to do this. Indeed wants your pants. Sit in the closet for a while. They're just going to become part of the scenery better to consider the trip to the Taylor to be part in the shopping experience. Seal actually get to wear your pants. The same thing goes for services you seek out if you upgrade your arm system so that you can get alerts when the front porch cameras triggered invest the five minutes to set up the alerts as soon as the installation has done. If it's worth paying the extra money for the service it's worth investing the time so that you can actually use it if you don't. The money is wasted. I see this issue. All the time with staffing an unfortunate number of organizations are terrible at on boarding new employees. What happens well? You've got a heavy workload so you feel like you urgently need to hire new staff but once the new people show up at work the workload feels too heavy for you to spend the time training them. They Waste Time. And you still feel overwhelmed. But if you wash the blueberries in this instance or actually plan out your new employees first. Few days with every hour give an objective. Well in both cases you'll actually get the value you are seeking in the first place and that is a huge win so when would you benefit from a little bit of prep work? What small investment of time can you make today to make life work better? In the meantime this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.

Welcome to before breakfast a production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to their before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to cope with being overwhelmed. By recognizing the exact nature of your overwhelming situation. You can take steps to make life feel more in control. Today's tip comes from Bill Burnett Dave Evans. New Book Designing Your Work Life. The follow up to design your life. This book teaches how to use design principles to improve your time at the office. We've probably all been in bad jobs, but in many cases Burnett Evans Right. People find themselves in jobs that they generally like it's just that circumstances are stressful. These stressful circumstances come in different flavors, which Burnett and Evans called the Hydra Overwhelm the happy overwhelmed and the hyper overwhelmed. They required different steps to mitigate. The, Hydra overwhelm takes its name from the. Greek monster that grew new heads. Every time one was chopped off. Perhaps. This feels a bit like your life. If you work in a place that has been made lean to the point where everybody is doing the equivalent of two to three jobs. Maybe. You're reporting to to managers or running too many projects simultaneously. Maybe you're having to pull information from too many sources, or you have to use legacy systems that are cumbersome and badly designed. The happy overwhelm is when you just have too much of a good thing going on. You volunteered for all the cool shiny stuff. A- love all of it, but you are one person with twenty four hours in a day. And it is physically impossible to work for all of them. And finally the hyper overwhelm happens in startup situations where there are no organizational norms and very little support. It's not that you're reporting to two different managers. It's that you really aren't sure if your manager is. Growing so fast that there's no organization chart. Anyway when you find yourself over weld, ask yourself if it's a hydra, happy or hyper kind of overwhelm. And, then you can figure out what to do. If it's Hydra, you can either drop tasks or ask permission to drop ones that are hurting your productivity. In the permission conversations be specific Brunette and Evans, right Say that you will be more productive if you can use the two thousand eighteen version of your software, the nineteen ninety eight version that you're stuck with. Or if you can write a monthly report instead of a weekly one, or if you can split your clients into as and BS, with the as getting responses in twenty four hours, and the bees is getting responses in ninety six hours. Most managers are happy to have people proposed solutions to their problems, so you don't need to fear this conversation. As for happy overwhelm. Well the problem here is that you may have a tougher boss yourself. You've chosen to do all these amazing things and you are now paying the price. The. Solution here is often to start delegating. Figure out which of these tasks you are uniquely qualified to do. and which can be given to someone else, maybe with you, editing or approving? At work, you can ask for resources, people, budgets, and so forth. At home maybe can hire a cleaning service. Send out the laundry or hire a personal assistant. The point is to multiply your existing hours because you are not going to magically get more. Finally for the hyper overwhelmed Burnett and Reconnect thinking of the situation as a marathon rather than a sprint. Run, the mile you're in take care of yourself making sure that your non-negotiables like in exercise happen. And finally change your story. Rather than I'm frantic. Because I have no idea what I'm doing, you could repeat. It's so exciting to be figuring this out. Positive thoughts go a long way. In all of these situations, check in a few weeks later to see if the situation seems more under control. Are the steps. You're taking working if so great. If not figure out. What else do you need to change? Things can be overwhelming for a while, but you don't want them to be overwhelming permanently. In the meantime, this is Laura.

Or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to before breakfast. Production of iheartradio. Good morning this is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to change the mood of everyone around you with a simple strategy. Greet people with the smile. I was reminded of this strategy recently while reading audrey monkeys book. Happy Campers Monkey is the director of the Gold Ero camp in California. The vast majority of children love summer camp and in the book. Happy Campers monkey explores the reasons for this. And how can transfer those lessons to normal home and work lights a key? Finding a good camp has relentlessly positive atmosphere. The counselors make every child Phil. Welcome positive. Peer interactions are encouraged. And yes the focus is on fun activities but even when people are making up their bunk beds the focus is on being upbeat. Not Olive Life can be sunshine and rainbows but monkey writes in her book. That being aware of your moods and making a commitment to small positive acts can go a long way. I can feel it when I sucked the fun out of the room for my family members because of my own bad food monkey rights conversely parents model positive emotions and interactions the majority of the time have kids who do the same. It starts with a simple smile. And maybe you're not a natural smiler but monkey says that's okay you can start the habit by giving your family members a smile at four specific times. I when you greet them in the morning to start the day second when you greet them after school or work or anytime after not seeing them for a while third during at least one conversation when you're looking them in the eyes and finally at bedtime when you took them in to say good night for smiles a day is not that tough add. Add that you can do this with other people in your life to if you're ordering coffee you're showing your bus pass to someone every morning. Be sure to smile as you're doing. So any regulars on your commute can be treated similarly the receptionist or security guard at your office deserves a big style rather than that hunkered down pained look some people have as if they're headed into labor and the salt mines for the day smiles. You say hello to your colleagues smile when you pay for your lunch in the cafeteria. You don't actually have to be in a good mood. This is a two second investment. In limiting the extent of whatever personal rain cloud is following you around. And you know what? There's always the chance that that two seconds smile will improve your mood to. There's some interesting research finding that when people are asked to hold a pen or a chopstick in their mouths in a way that forces their lips into a smile they actually do feel better and since a smile costs absolutely nothing. There's really no downside to giving it a try. So how will you make sure you give your force byles today? More is better but I'm pretty sure you can manage for in the meantime this is Laura.
