Karen frost of a light solutions about the impact of covid nineteen and the economic recession on healthcare consumers ability to save we consider a range of strategies. Employers can use from lifestyle cards to account seating to support employees during times of hardship and set them up for long term. Financial success right. This is carla dunkelberg. Her and i am the vice president of sales for a light smart choice account sales team. I'm curious frost. And i lead our solution stretch. Help business at a light. Karen for those in the audience listening. That aren't familiar with the light. Can you give us a just a quick background on the company so a light is the legacy humid associates administration. This is so we used to be part of the who and he would at that point and just back in two thousand seventeen found off to a stand alone company and a light is focused on really all things. Hr we do health wealth. Hr and payroll management services to employers is that you're about five hundred lives in over If i look at the health book of business he served about fourteen million people representing about one hundred and set. I'm sorry seven hundred forty clients. And when i say health i need a whole variety thinks that starts with benefits administration including including cobra saying you know Aca compliance but we also do the rest of the circle so we have helped navigation services consumer accounts and his as benefit navigation services. So we if if it's an hr thing a like pretty much does me all right so the topic. The main topic for today is around savings and we know if you think about savings and spend sort of two sides of the same coin we know that cova nineteen has had a major impact on spending this year so it will start with the spending side of it. I'm curious what you guys are. Seeing at a light in terms of spend changes or trends may be karen. We'll start with you and then carly you can add to that if you want. Oh absolutely so. Let's think about this in two ways. So i would probably everyone on this call. His about is what you hear in the press around the significant impact on the delivery system. And so you heard things There was almost a six hundred billion dollar decrease in q two this year in healthcare spending But what may not be as widely heard his how. That's rebounded really starting in the late spring early summer and so i was just reading a kaiser family foundation report before coming out of this call in although there was about almost a forty percent decrease then in q two over the summer we saw spending rebound to all only about ten percent lower than prior years so we did see a big drop in things like elective surgeries. Those things that could be really delayed without significant long term impact on patients. But what we're starting to be more and more worried about are the things that could have long term impact like preventive care screenings cancer We saw a significant drop in that. Drop his remain and as we all know is you. Don't if don't find those illnesses early treating them that that charter later as well as more costly. And then if we think about the impact on people We see you know over. Forty percent of people telling us that they wouldn't care because they were afraid nearly three fourths of employers telling us that they're worried about an overstressed healthcare system and not being able to find a doctor one And then the impact of that with over fifty percent of people telling us that there's a negative impact on their overall mental wellbeing as a result of everything. That's fine out in the end. So we see an impact on the actual spending as well as people's outlook on future healthcare services.

Protests mount in Peru after president's impeachment
"Martin Vizcarra on Monday has led to ever growing demonstrations. Mr Vizcarra was voted out of office by Congress accused of accepting bribes during a previous term. A state governor. He's been replaced by the head of the Peruvian Congress Manual Marina. He's made an appeal for calm. Mr. His car's supporters say Congress used the corruption allegations as a as a pretext to seize power five months before the next presidential election. I've been speaking to Peruvian investigative journalist Gustavo Gorriti. Person discovered was declared morally impaired on perpetual basis. The reason that was ostensibly taken is that in the course of the widespread investigation, some leaders and industry leaders also Off the lava Giotto case in Peru on Off the department off, Okay, We're in the south of Peru, but they were in the initial stages off investigation. There are not even formalized such a decisive course of action. Was taken by Congress in which about 50% have problems with prosecutors as well. Discoverer had only nine volts of heads on and with general elections in the mist, so they didn't have any real reason to between. Because there was an investigation going on in the proper way with the prosecutor's office on I think they wanted to prevent what would happen in inter solutions on do. They also work this subject off some investigations related to the lab. A gentle case on what they really wanted was to have power and to be able to disperse the prosecutor's team and all the rest. They've tried this before. Haven't made to try to get rid off Mr Fiske. Carla, that is correct. Try that. In September, they were close to shitting the majority. Now they were trying to get votes and half made lots and lots of promises among the different groups on now, you see that that sort of coalition is dissembling. Many of those are both for the impeachment are saying that they won't give a vote of confidence to the new Cabinet that has been put together. But it was important thing is that people understood perfectly. What was behind that. I'm the kind of mass protest rallies, marches, mobilization demonstrations that you have seen around has no president after the kind of massive mobilizations that brought about the authoritarian government of Alberto Fujimori in the year, 2000 And I would say that in some respects they're mobilized even higher numbers of people. What the the country why demonstrations toe two days ago were unprecedented in Lima. The police reacted with brutality, but it didn't deter the demonstrators. And those who've taken to the streets. What What do they want? They want the president to be reinstated to. They are not explicit about that. They are very explicit, very clear about wanted these people out of government what would be the solution afterwards? A couple of solutions have been trade out. The most logical one could be to reinstate Mr Reese, Kara and half his term and in the normal way next July. He would have a month off government again a general election to supervise and carry out And then the other most important thing. True continue the country wide mobilization and actions against the covet against the pandemic on to prevent a second way as the one that is bringing so much havoc in Europe. And if that happened in Europe, if it good come now to Peru, and you have to understand with with all this mass demonstrations in the streets and on that the percentage of contagion would grow tremendously. But it would be devastating toe Peru infections are likely to

These little branches reminded me of my sunday suffers and it really made me even more homesick. It was fantastic and just watching. Everybody cook. I just didn't know how to cook.

She has a business. I was like what in my head i was like. Oh my gosh. So they they were like what's the name of your business. And i looked out at that picnic basket and i said the lunch basket.

She was cast on top chef and her television career has been rolling along steadily ever sense. If you've seen carla on any of the shows that she's been on you know that she just a natural entertainer she's warm and confident and charming and just a little bit kooky. So i was not surprised to hear that. Carla approaches strangers on the streets to talk about one of her favourite foods. Let's talk about biscuits. Because i know you love biscuits thread that you were doing something called biscuits with strangers. That i lived in new york for a little bit. While i was doing the chiefs i was new york in dc. And when i would ask somebody you know where where are their biscuits. They would send me. The places like these are not good biscuit so i decided to randomly go up to people and say how you but i love talking to strangers anyway. I don't to know how to make a biscuit. And if they said now like. Can we make this this together he has my whole thing was either. You need to know how to make a good this kit or you needed to recognize one and for me. I want you to recognize one. So that when you tell somebody where the good biscuit is you're not gonna send them to that place that doesn't have a good biscuit. So carla would invite herself into these strangers homes and they would bake biscuits together. There's different kinds of biscuits. What do you like. There are there are. My biscuits are layered little fluffier in the center and crunchy on the outside but really really tender. I love crunchy bottom. Which is why. I put butter of a pan the pan. I don't take them on parchment paper so i put butter on the sheet pan and then when i punched them out. I flipped him over. So that the punch to edge that flattened edge is on top so they disallow bit taller. And then there's a little bit of shortening in the mix as well as the because at shortening makes them nice and chris and i use a harder winter wheat versus a softer wheat. So white lily is a softer weight and king. Arthur is a hardier week. So i like a hardier week because they brown a little differently i feel like biscuits are something that people are by just like making pie crust. It's one of those like ooh. I don't know i'm afraid to make biscuits okay. So when i taught cook. I love to teach. I think probably because it's like performing. So when i used to teach a cooking class at top when i had the pie class i would say to people if you can't make this crest. I promise you. I will go to your house and make it for you.

The American Dream Daughter: A Conversation With Author Karla Cornejo Villavicencio
"When carla was one and a half years old. Her parents left her in their native ecuador in the care of family members while they emigrated to new york city the plan was they would work for one year to save up enough money to pay off their debt and then they'd come home but barely making ends meet. One year turned into four so they decided to have god led join them in their new home. She was just about to five years old growing up away from her. Parents would ever permanent effect on carla and shape her and her work to this very day therapist. After therapist told me i had attachment issues and that my mental illness related to my childhood. God is a dhaka recipient and at least on paper. She's the realization of the american dream for immigrant parents. She went to harvard now. She's pursuing a phd at yale but the constant pressure to be the perfect high-achieving hardworking child has oftentimes been a mental health nightmare. For god. Laugh once you hear your parents come home and their body is wrecked at the end of the day. And you know they've earned like little very little money and they look at you and they say i do this for you. You can't forget that for the rest of your life and you're bound to them. As down with god led to talk about intergenerational wounds mental health in the latino community and how we can take care of each other. God-like gordon hobie abby. Sense your to latino say thank you for having me. So you're writing this book as an immigrant with no you know essentially legal status. Was it difficult to harness your feelings while you were writing this book. Yeah there's just ways of describing my anger about the notions of citizenship and deserving this and privilege one of the original introductions was this fantasy that i've had since i was a little girl which was A hostage situation at a bank and all of the hostages were way blond. Children women cops firefighters people who are deemed innocent and heroes. And i walk into the bank and i'm undocumented and somehow even though i have no idea how to hold a gun i'm able to like russell begun out of the terrorist hands. Shoot the terrorist in the knees or somewhere. That's like not gonna kill him. Because i want to kill him in the hostages. Go out like they're all freed. And i'm wearing a slip because i also wanna look beautiful right which is also like a reference to two thousand six immigration marches where we all had to wear way. Then i walk out. And it's like swat teams are there and like everyone's there and of course isis there to arrest me because i'm the foreigner in my hair's in the breeze and everyone takes my photo and i'm like on the front cover of every national newspaper and i get my citizenship. That's that was my fantasy. Ever since i was a kid. That's how i got my citizenship. God it's like you have to do extraordinary acts of the hollywood magic and then you are rewarded your citizenship. I guess i'm stuck on the fact that you were having fantasies like this as a child. And i just wanna take a moment for people to think about that while other little kids are thinking about who knows there are undocumented children in this country who dream and have fantasies about somehow some miraculous situation that gives them the thing that your child takes for granted every day it's really burdensome to have to perform goodness and innocence and perfection And i know that as a kid who are as a person now is a thirty year old woman who is on the outside on paper such a poster child for the american dream. And i've never performed it. But it's so imposed on me and i described my own complex feelings about it in the buck. Like i really drank the kool aid of sociability. Very early on when i was a child and became fixated on accomplishment and success and being able to win day retire. My parents even now Am fully aware and very self aware of the intergenerational trauma issues in our community and in my own family and everything. But i still don't think i i know who i am as a person outside of the way. My personal accomplishments can result in the alleviation of pain for my parents and the documented community. If you were to take that away from me. I don't know who i am as a person and i think that's true for a lot of children of immigrants who have become successful.
Concerns rise over election-related unrest
"Episode of the Coma politic cast recorded Monday. Almost Charlie Harder goes in depth with political strategist Kathy Allen and Randy Peple. In this excerpt, Charlie asked them about their concerns for the coming days. Shops are boarded up in Seattle and across the country. We saw those trucks with the trump flags on them surround the Biden bus over the weekend, and then on the far left, you have streets burning with riots and violence happening. I gotta ask you what's your level of concern for the threat of violence in the days following the election? It all depends, I suppose on to turn out, but I suspect I think we're gonna have a lot of celebration and not necessarily the kind that break windows and scream and yell at each other. I tend to think it will be much more of a festive and positive time. With everyone's expectations. Likely to wonder what comes next. Ready. Charlie. I share your concern. I think that there is a real danger of violence because we've already seen violence in the streets all summer long in some of our major cities in the United States, and now you're going to have a situation where there's a good chance that the vote totals tomorrow night. Are going to favor Donald Trump. His supporters are more likely to be voting at the Poles. Those votes they're going to be counted on Election day, and so it is very likely that he'll be ahead on Tuesday night and then we will see the lead start to slip away. As other state start counting their mail and votes, And the problem is each day that goes by each hour. That goes by where more votes are coming away, and his lead is getting smaller that his people are going to be believing that It's being stolen, and that's what can lead to violence. And, frankly, on the left. There are some that they're going to embrace it. Just like on the far right. There are groups out there that want to embrace the violence. They want chaos. They are anarchists. And that is the danger that we're gonna have, and next weekend if we don't have a very clear decision in the presidential race. That's gonna be a day weekend that I'm staying indoors. We're speaking with political strategists, Randy Peple and Kathy Allen cabbie. Well, I could also say that that which gives me great hope that that's not gonna happen Is that the number of votes that have indeed come in now? Give me that sense of a really security blanket and well, by the way and taking a look today at all of the estimates as to how many of those votes that have come in You know, over a dozen states right now are saying they will have far more counter the name ever can act on election night. But the problem with that, Kathy is that in Pennsylvania, they're not even allowed to look. You said that thing. But the fact is, is that that's one state and that is the state. I feel most likely is going to have those log log route of divided and they will have disappeared. People voting on Election Day as they have indeed been voting early. I appreciate that, Kathy, but I tend to look at where the candidates are spending their time to decide where they think they need the most help. And the entire Biden campaign is in Pennsylvania tomorrow on today, I mean the he's there. Carla Harris is there. His wife is there her husband is there. I mean, they're putting all their eggs in that basket. If they were secure about Pennsylvania, they would be somewhere else. And that's why I'm concerned because under Pennsylvania law, they're not allowed to even start checking the signatures. On the mail in ballots until 7 a.m. tomorrow, and many of the county clerks have said Hey at 7 A.m. tomorrow will get ready for election Day. We aren't even gonna look at our mail in ballots until Wednesday and Pennsylvania is the tipping point state. If Florida goes for Trump, Pennsylvania or North Carolina is going to be the one that will determine whether or not he holds on And so that's what I'm very concerned about. I'm actually not as concerned about Pennsylvania. I think he's putting a homecoming together that actually will indeed increased the number of people that will vote for him. You can hear the entire conversation with Rady Peple and Kathy Allen on the Coma politic cast available wherever you get your podcast and on coma, news dot com and
Interview With Carla Hassan
"Welcome Carla to the CMO podcast and congratulations the new city CMO. So happy to have you on his, you're just promote it and you were promoted about the time city named its first woman CEO. Jane Fraser did you to celebrate in any interesting or unusual way during Cova? We didn't well, we we We did celebrate over over a phone call. I am a huge fan of Jane's ever since I met her a couple of years ago. I just and I'm so thrilled for her I really really enthralled for her and I'm I'm honored to be working for her and alongside her and. And Look I think. This is just one of those times when you just really proud to to work at the company that you work at bright because the the the. The fact that we are putting our values to action by you know by by appointing Jane the CEO of the company is just such a huge huge nod to the wonderful leader that she is the greatest compliments that she's had and then also values we have as a company around diversity inclusion. I couldn't be more thrilled. I. Couldn't be more thrilled. We're going to get into that later but did you do any celebration with your family or friends? Yeah. Well, you know it's funny I actually. Back to your first question about whether I celebrated with Jane. So my announcement came out a believe it was on publicly on Wednesday and then hers was on Thursday and I wanted to email her and say, you couldn't give me twenty four hours to like celebrating. I. I thought that would be the right thing to do. But anyway she would have she would have gotten a kick out of if I'd actually said that you know we did celebrate at home we have a thirteen year old and I think for her it was a moment of pride in fact, I'll tell you. The week before that, we were driving in the car I was with her and I? And I saw the note that came out the president that came out to to the company about promotion and I. I kind of choked up a little bit and I handed her the phone. She said, Mama. What's wrong and I said nothing's wrong north and sometimes you know your life you know things happen in your life in a good way after you've worked so hard and I had her the phone and she read it and she said she just kind of looked at me. She said, you know Mama I am really proud of you and that was. Honestly, enough celebration for I mean. Obviously, we've got another marketer in the household who was also a very, very happy for me. So we just kind of had it real a quiet. Celebration at home. Sweet story what what? What was it about the letter that moved you? You know I think we all worked so hard right I mean we all just worked so hard and some days we we slug it out and leadership is hard and marketing his hard and. You know I've. I've had ups and downs my career I mean I started off at Kellogg's it at Pepsico and I took very traditional consumer packaged goods, marketing routes, and I kinda knew really where I was headed and then I decided to the one time in my life that I actually made a took a risk in my career. It was such a public failure right and so for me it. Took a long time for me to get when you went to toys R. us. That's when I went to are. Yeah and you know I would not change it for the world. It has opened up so many doors for me and it has taught me so much about the kind of leader I want to be the kind of team I want to be around and the kind of. The way I want to I, want to sort of lead teams in and Dr Visions but. Say was hard right I. Mean it was hard and you know in in the at the risk of being vulnerable, that was not a not a not an easy time for me personally for my daughter to see that and for my my parents who live in Lebanon to see that you know for me it was it just it wasn't a fun moment in my life, and so I've worked really hard to kind of come back from that and so I think it wasn't necessarily the. The words, per se but it really was kind of the moment for me. That was just like all right. You know what a few years after that happened. I worked hard and you know and here I am and so I think that that's more what it was from than than than specific words. Yeah. We're in a very big role now internally externally but that decision of Toys R. US to me is one of the more interesting decisions you made in your life so I wanna come back to that. The podcast. So I've got a lot to say about that. Super before we get too much further into this, this podcast is a first. You're the second member of your family to be interviewed by me. We released their husband Tareq podcast in July. Of course is a CMO at PETCO and our viewers or listeners can hear this but you have a beautiful dog taking a nap behind you on this new. So it's a dog starts to make some noise just bring him in. No, forgive me if he does I, guess. So, did you listen to your husband's podcast? I did I thought he did a really nice job. You know it's funny Jim. I. Don't know if you well, you did you did have conversation about this. You know we tend not. We have in our entire career tended not to talk about. The fact that we're married and in fact, I would tell you that there are so many people in. That will will hear me you mentioned my husband's name not saying who he is and and will will say wait a minute what that Tareq is your husband hold on a second. So we been pretty deliberate about. You know not. Not, sort of mean public about it but I do you know we follow each other? We do. We do love to hear what each other stay and and so I thought that was actually a really thought. He did a really nice
U.S. cant meet Paris goals without federal leadership, researcher says
"I'm Dr Anthony Lewis, and this is climate connections. After president trump announced that the US will exit the Paris climate agreement many US states, cities and businesses stepped up with their own commitments to cut carbon pollution. Carla fresh with the Rocky Mountain Institute a nonprofit think tank. She's part of a team that's been crunching numbers to figure out what's really happening on the ground in the united. States on climate and figure out what's the impact of those actions so what does it really add up to? The researchers estimate that in ten years if the state cities and businesses fully implement their plans, us. Greenhouse gas emissions will be twenty five percent less than they were in two thousand five that significant. But to stay in line with the goals of the Paris climate agreement, the US needs to cut emissions by almost twice that. The researchers found that making those larger cuts in carbon pollution is still feasible but I says, it will require a nationwide commitment to transitioning to renewable energy and electric vehicles. Among other strategies, we have to have federal leadership and we have to have leadership from states and cities and businesses. So this is not an either or situation, but together, we can put on track to drastic emissions reductions.
Campaign pushes to ban the sale of tobacco-flavored products to teens in Washington, DC
"Community and public health organizations are banding together in a new campaign aimed at Paco products targeted for kids.

I mean I totally get it and even in Paris I mean correct me if I'm wrong I think even the bars of finger have to be closed for for a bit more as well. So they just removes a little bit of the magic of people but of course they're doing this for reason but it is it is a difficult time. It is very difficult very much. And let's talk about some of the songs I mean I personally love Calicoes I mean was that the first thing was well I mean it's funny. We're just talking about how difficult the world is at the moment, but it's such an uplifting track. It isn't uplifting track. I don't know I didn't write in the you know the quarantine a was not inspiring. It was great for the day most but I didn't write about the Corinthian of because it was actually too late every you know the mood of the album was on a very. Special mood about love and desire in sensuality in. So I didn't. Copied mood at all and then now. The caveat arrived? So the songs are like. Out of the completely out of the of the.

Enclave on edge: Armenia and Azerbaijan
"Armenia and either by Jan, rejected international calls for a ceasefire yesterday after deadly clashes broke out on Sunday pushing the two countries to the brink of war. Both have declared martial law and total military mobilization. At least one hundred people have been killed in the fighting which is involved artillery strikes and air power. The two former Soviet republics are locked in a decades-old conflict over the disputed province of Nagorno Carla. This marks the second time in less than three months that the countries have come to blows. This time edging closer to all out war one, which could ensnare of Turkey and Russia. We haven't seen detail death tolls from the by Johnny side, but the overall death toll now seems to be well north of one hundred peaches. Ski Is our Turkey correspondent that would make the fighting in nagorno-karabakh the heaviest since two, thousand, sixteen, when at least two hundred people were killed and on pace to be the worst since one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, four, the end of the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and what is that fight about it is about a region known as nagorno-karabakh disputed province legally recognized as part of by John. But controlled by Armenian forces to go back in history. Now, going to cut about had been a part of the Kingdom of a bar via over two thousand years ago and has been real sins by a succession of Empires. But under the Soviets nagorno-karabakh was a part of by John and as the USSR crumbled clashes erupted between the Armenian majority of the region which sought union with Armenia or independence, and the by Johnny minority and these devolved into the brutal war in which about thirty thousand people were killed and about a million displaced. Included episodes of ethnic cleansing and several atrocities. The war ended with a ceasefire in nineteen, ninety four, and as I mentioned or mean forces have held onto nagorno-karabakh itself, end to seven districts surrounding the region. So it's been despite the ceasefire still disputed since then correct not only has been disputed. There have been regular skirmishes the one in two, thousand sixteen, and as recently as this year in July, the sixteen people were killed in. Areas north of GonNa cut above thousands of Azerbaijanis responded to this also to the death of renowned as her by Johnny General by taking to the streets demanding that their government retake all of nagorno-karabakh. So why is it the conflict? This time seems to be escalating. So quickly, analysts see the signs of a much broader military offensive by as by John and a return to a much broader conflict than what we saw in previous years. Some of them told me the saw this as a much better prepared campaign with more troops and fighting on all parts of the line of contact or the frontline, and we're seeing is in addition to heavy weaponry, infantry helicopters and masses of drones on both sides. There's a threat that fighting could spill over into civilian areas and also into areas where pipelines. Deliver gas and oil from by John to Turkey through. Georgia. So it's clear on the ground then that this is a much more serious conflict but I mean, what set it off? There's a belief on both sides that there is no political solution, the new Armenian Prime Minister Nicol. Chagnon in his speech last year called for the reunification of the crowd about Armenia. Azerbaijan side feels that the only way it can recover at least parts of going to cut about or the outlying provinces is through force. Perhaps because of covid nineteen, there has been next to no international mediation of the conflict since this spring and that is said to have led to the clashes in July and the failure to mediate in the aftermath of July may have precipitated. What we're seeing today people in the region say that to some extent they saw this. Coming for miles and international community failed to prevent it and what is the international community's response. Now that it's escalated, the U. N. Security Council has called on the two sides to put an end to the fighting the European Union, the United States and Russia have also called for a ceasefire unlike other international actors Turkey has urged by John to push forward and edge of type air to one Turkish president said on September twenty eighth that peace would only come to. The region wants Armenia withdrew from Nagorno cut about his spokesperson added the next day that Turkey was quote unquote fully ready to help Azerbaijan, recover the enclave reports indicate that Mr Government has sent Syrian mercenaries who help Azerbaijan. It is also providing drones to the other by Johnny Army and our media accused Turkey of shooting down one of its warplanes, which is a charge that Turkish officials have denied and you mentioned Russia calling for a ceasefire how is Russia involved escalation? On the part of other by John or further, Turkish involvement could also drag in Russia which sells arms to Azerbaijan, but also has a mutual defense pact with Armenia. So in theory because not going cut about is not legally part of Armenia Russia is not under any commitment to defend Armenia in case of an attack on they're going to cut about and so far. In fact, Russia has only gone so far as to ask Turkey, to back its calls for a ceasefire. If Armenia dust come under attack by Azerbaijan or by Turkey, it seems Russia will have no choice but to defend Armenia and do you think that's the way things are heading I mean is there a way to calm the tensions here so far calls for a ceasefire have fallen on deaf ears it may be that Azerbaijan will succumb to Russian pressure and that both sides will. Lay Down Arms. It may be that other by John will simply settle for partial gains especially in the seven district near not going to talk about and declare victory, which would placate public opinion at home but this may yet get out of control.

Techniques including very powerful technique like noticing while you're doing something kind of noticing your own reaction, noticing your own feelings, noticing what's going on around you and it's fairly simplistic premise but I actually found it incredibly powerful. So I am not saying that I'm someone who loses it with my kids all the time. I. Feel like I'd probably do an average amount but I still feel like her book really helped me to. Calm down in those situations where I might have chosen to yell or give out kind of a harsh ultimatum or something like that. So. Yeah, good recommendation than which probably all check that out. There's a lot of. Whatever the word is with our kids these days. Yeah. You had mentioned though Josh giving you a night right like. That was amazing I had to ask for it. You know my husband is wonderful but we have kids and it's not always the easiest to put all three of them to bed. So neither of US typically wants to volunteer, but one night I just said. I cannot do this I do not want to do. Can you please just do it I want to go in there I want to go in our bedroom like locked the door and finish binge eating big summer, which was great by the way and I did and it was great. I will admit you've cried for me and I had to put her to bed but it was it was actually Up until that point and Exactly. It was. It was actually really nice and I will do it again I don't know that I need like a specific like night every week I know some people do that but I do think that asking for it when I need it. Fine with it, and then he asked it actually over the weekend he had a headache just like I can't and I was like you know what I feel like really good because you did this for me and I'm happy to do this for you, and so I think we may do that a little bit more. Yeah. That's great. Now, I took a sort of evening not not so much indict off. Having a really rough day than I You know we still had our sitter in after dinner for a little bit. Michael was with Ruth at her softball game and I said, I, really need to go for a run I hadn't got one in and I was feeling rather clustered about a lot of stuff and it was still ninety degrees but I went on a trail run and it felt much better in the shade at than it would have out on the. Street and it was just what I needed. I came back and so much of a better mood than if I had spent that time trying to answer random emails which I was going to do during an email triage time as we discussed in the last episode, just recognizing that you're kind of going off the rails and having some sort of treat or coping mechanism that you have to get yourself back to a normal place instead of wallowing in it, which is you know sometimes. Satisfying and its own twisted way. But probably, not the healthiest thing long-term if I'm GonNa Wallow in something that I, it's probably best for me to journal about it or like right out some words about it or even like draw a diagram or something because then I kind of get to enjoy the actual wallowing but then I feel like the active using my hands to do something prevents me from multitasking and also just kind of. Better know feels a little bit therapeutic. So that can be a way to acknowledge your crappy feelings, but then also relieved them at the same

"carla" Discussed on Breakfast Leadership
"Good point and I agree with you The education education system in this is not a slam against the educators I know that they're doing the best that they can and they have to follow the curriculum. That is the laid out by various school boards and whatnot. But I agree with you What is being taught? Today's not in alignment with what society society needs. Employers need And again we. We talked about this little bit in the in the pre show about a it with social media attention spans. And everything like that you have to like you the example he gave skinny and and get to the point. And when you've been in some of the work that I'm doing And helping an organization with some grant proposals and whatnot. You know there's this AH mindset of okay we get filled up with all of this fluff and this and this. It's like you know what. Here's a bullet point. Here's a hyperlinked to the website. They can look at it and figure out what the organization does it. They don't know about US already and from there. This is why we're asking for this grant money. This is how we're going to use it if we are successful civil in getting the grant and and this is how it will benefit your community by US doing us in get pinpoint in it. Also look for those cues that The grant reviewers are going to be looking for in order for you to have a a decent Chanson on winning bet award yet. Let me share two overarching principles. And then one of my writing strategies. The the first overarching principle. I explain as as this imagine seriously right now. Imagine a a white rectangle. It's it's about an inch tall and five inches wide that and now now inside that rectangle put the big fold word. Opportunity got the message. There is that every single writer both nonfiction fiction and fiction. Every writer is constrained by two items. You're constrained by the readers time. Everybody's busy knock knock knock on busy. What do you want? Tell me quickly I've got other things to do. And you're also constrained by space literally often a government forms will you you To the amount of space that you're allocated to either give input to your performance appraisal Justify resources whatever the messages ages. There's actually often a demarcation line on the area on the form so that's all the space you're allocated on web pages. It's the above above the fold webpage So the the individual the writer who can best leverage that time and that space wins so oh that white right to that white rectangle is opportunity. That's the first principal. Second principle is given that fact you need to not bury. Bury the Golden Nuggets if you only have X. amount of minutes or sometimes seconds to catch threes attention and make your point. The most important important part of your message needs to go first. And then it's backed up with the answer. Larry Information people so often make the mistake of putting down out all of the. Let me lead you enter the story. Let me give you the background information at that point. You've lost the reader so time space boom give me the important Porton stuff up front or I may not hang with you long enough to get to it and the other point going to your comment about the grant writers. The other principal is is empathy. You have to know the audience know your reader know your listeners. And what they need and then right to those needs so if you are applying for a grant know what it is no the the grant providers -nition it's values. Its targets. Its it's desires and then match up your capabilities and what you offer to to those items. I call that the great match game and then N.. Tell your story in a compelling prioritized manner I love those things I love the opportunity component. And that's that's one of those things where I'm going to commit that to memory because there's a lot of things we fill out all the time whether it's it for myself you know to be on other podcast shows or you'll fill out applications for anything and a look at that boxes and opportunity in again another key point. I really want people to to write this down is know your audience chance no matter what you're doing whether you are writer you're right blog. Post your author your podcast show host or you're applying for jobs or applying paying for grants or anything like that. No what your audience needs. And then right in in a way that addresses those needs because their brain is looking for that the the SPEC and addition of right to influence was published last month. There's a chapter in there I I. I really enjoyed writing this particular chapter. It's called the psychology of the catch. Know your audience and so a couch. This as if fishermen in the context of being a fisherman in the skilled the knowledgeable fisherman will know the characteristics of the particular fish. He's trying to catch. No the feeding pattern known where they tend to swim. No the impact of weather on their feeding patterns know the depth of the water in which they reside he knows the target audience. It's the very same psychology for a rider fact or fiction in trying to effectively communicate with the audience against you have to target them by knowing what they need who they are and then and then play to that and if you do that what if you make that the mandate of everything that you do You will notice sooner than later. I mean I wish I could tell oh you. You'll notice in thirty days or last night. Who knows what it'll be but you will notice an improvement in your success rate and what you're trying to accomplish whether it's getting more readers getting more listeners? Getting more approvals on grant applications getting more job interviews Uh for writing in over letters and resumes and things like that added rating has such an impact on so many facets of life and doing it the right way It will create all types of positive impact for you and the people that you serve. The I partnered with a a wonderful gentleman named Tim. Nulan any W. L. I. N.. Tim Is the artist artist Who who provided so many of these lighthearted Caricatures there in the book right influenced by the way is not boring stuffy textbook it it. It's a lighthearted touch. It speaks to the reader just like you and I are communicating. So I wanted lighthearted light-hearted images to convey some of these plants so so Tim Newlyn his Disney certified artists but but even more importantly he is a He's American ex PAT WHO lives in Denmark his professional career in addition to being. It's such a wonderful graphic artist. He was I mean for for images and cartoons and such. He was a graphic artist. Supporting Five Live Research Universities in Denmark. The the difficulty that Scientific and technical folks have is in communicating mutating their ideas to the board that allocates funds for their particular projects. Like anything else. If you can't convince the fund the the money owners the thunders of the merits of your project you're not GonNa get supported so so these scientists would come to Tim and he would. He would provide a graphic images not cartoons but but graphic images to help convey to the funders the merits of all these brilliant ideas and Tim's Tim's background is professional. Background mirrored. Very much the message of the entire book here. You have to tell your story well On concisely in a language that the audience is going to understand you. You Know Tim. Tim told me that there are so many. Brilliant ideas that that end up on the cutting room floor which is a kind of a tragedy for for for human society simply because the individuals weren't able to convey them and concise language that communicated to the to the audience. Yeah makes you think how many great creative things whether it was books or grant applications or even resumes of people. That would be absolutely amazing to work for your organization. Don't make it through because the it wasn't concise and it wasn't written in a way that caught your attention and it's those little tweaks that really make it possible for people to really we reach levels that you know they dream about and really aim to hit. So I've loved our conversation today and I want to. I know where people can find out more about. You you know about the book and anything else that you're working on today. Yes my right. My website is www right to influence dot net. They can email me at Carla's C. A. R. L. A.. Hey at right to influence dot net And what I'm working on now is is just continuing to get the word out. There and and teaches teaches many workshops as possible. This is an addition to my day. Job By the West will work for the federal government here and I. I loved that job also so I don't sleep a lot because because I have. I have two simultaneous passions. But I guess you know concluding messages that writing powerfully is essential whether you're wanting to develop author retain in house talent or or compete in In Large scale award programs either for Your Corporation or for yourself as an individual Joel defend existing budgets justify more resources. If you have a story that you that you think is is worth telling or working the occasional miracle. You can't do that if you can't write persuasively it's awesome. I'll definitely have that information in the show notes. And and Karl. You're doing amazing amazing work in we've talked about before the show And you know it. You know the impact that your work has caused in people's lives and continues to because speaks volumes and it. It really has made an impact on on so many lives and continues to do so. Thank you for for being on the show. Really appreciate you in all the work that you're doing. Thank you for the opportunity and I wish your your audience lock lock in all that they do. Thank you thank you pay. It's Michael again. Thank you for listening to the PODCAST. I really appreciate it. Sure like many the people you're dealing with some significant stress and possibly approaching burn out. I know how you feel in two thousand nine. My burn out led to a year.
