"But there's lots of different ways to practice loving kindness, but literally that's what you're doing. You're practicing. It's like going to the golfing course and hitting the ball over and over again until you can do it without it feeling so hard. And so I was like walking up and down the street being like happy, healthy, safe, live where these might be happy, maybe healthy. They would safely with these. And I was like, what is the point of this? But then, in the hard moment, all of a sudden I was like, I just need a little ease right now. And that word came to me, and it was like a start, so I was practicing when it was easy, because you can't practice things in the middle of chaos. It doesn't work. And then in the chaotic moment, I was like, I just want to live with ease and what would help me do that right now. So that was, that was my entry. And if you walk around saying to yourself, parenting is hard for everyone, and it's okay that it's hard. And you just repeat that to yourself a million times. That's fine, too. So you're right, hunter. It's not going to feel authentic at first. And if it does for you, that's great. But if it doesn't, that's normal. So try out a bunch of stuff, right? Try putting your hand over your heart, try giving yourself a hug. Try having maybe a beaded bracelet or a necklace that somehow reminds you like a physical touchstone that reminds you to have some kindness and forgiveness and acceptance. There's a bunch of different ideas out there, and so I have a ton in my book, hunter's got ideas, but there's a lot of different ways to sort of sneak into this, and then you just need to keep doing it, and eventually it will feel. More authentic and normal, and you'll be able to speak this language fluently. All right, last time, yay. For hunter, clap track for Carla. Yay.

"So I just want to go over what Carla said, just to recap for the listener, that this practice was to maybe to recognize how you're feeling, to be aware of, oh, I'm feeling overwhelmed. I'm feeling, I just did something that I didn't like. I'm hearing myself maybe think, you know, recrimination thoughts. And so that's when you take that moment. Sometimes it doesn't take a lot of time. And as you practice, it takes less time. It really doesn't take that long. But you take a moment. I mean, and for me, I put that hand to my heart because that for me, the touch really matters a lot. But just that acknowledgment of that basically that's mindful awareness. Oh, this is happening right now. I'm feeling like a shitty parent because of X, Y, or Z, right? And then also there was that acknowledgment of this is hard. This is a moment of suffering, right? Acknowledging that I'm feeling this difficult feeling, and this is hard. And she also acknowledged that, you know, it's hard for all of us, like being a human being is hard parenting is incredibly hard. This is really hard. And then what and then that coming to that place of kindness. You know, how can I, how can I offer myself some kind words or if I can't kind of reach out to somebody else who can? Is that a good summary for you, garlic? Yes, I love that. And what I want to point out to our listeners and one of the reasons I love being friends with hunter and I love learning from hunter and coming on her podcast is she and I have such dramatically different ways of practicing this, dramatically, I don't know, it's dramatic, but we have different ways of practicing this, right? And I won't even lie, hunter, the first time I was in a mindfulness based stress reduction course and we were learning about loving kindness. I like almost threw up in my mouth because I was like, this is so freaking I can't handle it. Do not talk to me about happy wishes people. I need a plan. I need a life plan. I have a plan and happy wishes are not my plan. Oh, how I have a mighty of fallen? What am I saying? I don't know, but really I've come to understand and obviously seeing the praises of self compassion. But what I will tell you is that I love that hunter pointed out, that she actually does put her hand on her heart, which is a practice that many people do and many people teach and to be honest, it's so not resonant with me. It doesn't like it's not meaningful. I feel cheesy, it totally doesn't work. And what I encourage your listeners to do is find your authentic way of speaking this language. Right? It's going to look a little different for everyone, but the fundamental ideas behind it about connecting with what Kristin Duff calls common humanity, which is this reminder that you're not alone, no matter what you're suffering is, I promise you, you're not alone. This real sense of curiosity about what's going on about what you need and then treating yourself with kindness. Those are sort of the fundamental aspects and this mindful awareness. These are the fundamental aspects of compassion

Who Is the Sellout?
"Whenever I'm on air and I can't address this in stories like this pop up. I'm always one here's what I fake racism, real racism, perceived racism. Real racism is what our ancestors experience. What many fought fought against in the civil rights. Fake racism, CRT, perceived racism, idiots like this, like this khalisa wing who now believe because she's been brainwashed by the left that anything a white person says to her is probably racist and of course she believes that black people can't be racist. Here's the problem with that inrix, ignorance. And I feel compelled to talk about this just swiftly here. It is dumb as hell to say that black people can't be racist. If you're a black person that says that you can not be racist, that is a very dumb thing to say. Let me tell you why. Because where do you get the moral authority to say such a thing? To say such a stupid thing, is it you that judges your heart when you die? Is it the black community? See, this is why when people say Carla, you're a sellout in your uncle. I'm like, shut up. It's not like you're gonna be judging me. It's got that I gotta stand before. And by the way, please don't call me a sellout when you're the one. You're the black face of white Marxism.

Everyone Asks Charlie: Trump or DeSantis?
"Questions on our campus tour. In fact, we also have a lot of questions here for ask me anything. And Greg from Cincinnati and Carla from North Carolina and Cynthia from Arizona. They all have a very similar question. And I received this question at every single one of our campus stops, which is Charlie, Trump, or desantis, Trump, or desantis. And I answered it, I said, look, if Trump runs again, he's going to have my support. I said, he's earned it. He's been good to me. He's been good to the country. I consider him to be, I guess you could say a friend, and that's pretty cool to say. And he's been terrific. I also say though that Ron DeSantis has an opportunity at some point to be a once in a generation once in a century statesman. Ron DeSantis is hitting home run after home run after home run. Ron DeSantis has just now signed a pro life Bill that the left is losing their mind over. He signed the anti grooming Bill the parental rights education bill, he just signed a fatherhood initiative and on top of all of that, Ron DeSantis has bailed out the corrupt dumb and I would say double minded Republican establishment.
The Collaps of Public School Education
"Let me ask you about their education at Tiffany because I've been covering gender education K through three and the end of excellence education in San Diego's Patrick Henry high school, 9 through 12. Education is collapsing in America as it collapses in Washington state. It is collapsing. And people in Washington state will remember that I was 11 years old when patty Murray was first selected. She ran as the mom in tennis shoes. Oh yes. She was a preschool teacher and she was on school board and she was going to fight for our children. So under her policies, our education has gotten worse. And we were a 44% average in public school system prior to the pandemic. You could imagine how those scores of considerably gone down. All through my boys are in the public school system. And here in Washington state, our kids were out of school for almost two full years. And not only that, we have to get back to teaching math and reading. We have to get back to competitive quality education.

They're kind of stunned in astonished that Donald Trump endorsed Doctor Oz, what was your reaction? I'm not telling the Pennsylvania race at all. And people ask me about Pennsylvania. They ask me about Georgia and Arizona and Alabama and what I tell people and I'll tell you is I am laser focused on my race here in Ohio. People start voting two weeks from part of me. Election day is two weeks in Tuesday. People started voting last week. And so my 100% focus is on Ohio. Have you given up on getting the endorsement of Donald Trump? No, I'm doing everything I can to earn the endorsement of Donald Trump. I'd be honored to earn his endorsement. And I think I'm the one candidate in this race who embody the Trump America first agenda. Most of my opponents were with Kasich to the bitter end in 2016.

Republicans Hope Education Wave Drives Parents to the Polls
Is Middle America Turning Red?
"Now, sleep. I put in the category of Jonathan Swan Joshua, who's just a straight down in the middle reporter. He has a call not on Iowa this morning, Jonathan. Iowa has gone from purple to red to deep red. They're not going to have any congressman standing. They're not even going to have a senator on the ballot against chuck grassley, which is malpractice. I think that's happening in Pennsylvania as well. Just take us up to 30,000 feet. You cover politics. I'm going to come back to a couple of issues in a second, but up at 30,000 feet. Do you see all of the blue washing out of the non coastal areas and the heartland of the country's red? It's certainly been the very pronounced trend. And I mean, the problem with this year as something to sort of draw 30,000 foot conclusions is the best political environment for Republicans in 2010. And so you could have some really astonishing results that are atypical. But yeah, absolutely. As a macro trend for sure, that's what's happening. And Democrats don't really seem to have answers for it. I'm not seeing any anyway from the national leadership.
What's the Strategy for Ukraine Going Forward?
"Congressman, let's go back to Ukraine now. I try to be an optimist about these things. If neurons house Intel, your buddy Tom cotton is on Senate and tell you only use open-sources on the radio. Here's what I fear. I fear that everyone thinks Ukraine is much stronger than they are because they beat back the Russians in the north. And now the Russian tanks in the vast planar on mariupol are pool are positioning themselves. There are 10,000 dead bodies on the street scenario. People should put that in the context of Brooklyn yesterday, 33 wounded or incapacitated on a subway. Imagine 10,000 corpses in the city, what could we do? What should we do when the Russian tanks began to roll out of the Donbass through Mario pole destroying everything in front of them heading to keep from the other side? Well, I think our best strategy now is to provide the Ukrainians with all of the hard power requests that they have made. Now, again, as we started off this conversation, we've made progress on that front. Obviously they're using stingers and javelins to devastating effects, but there is more that we can do. There's more we can do to harness some of the offers that our Eastern European allies, NATO allies have made. And the fact
Biden Administration Revisits Failed Obama Middle East Policies
"Now, congressman, I got a new column up over at The Washington Post on the fact that we have a new axis. Russia, Khamenei and Iran and she and China. And being critical of Putin is being like critical of Mussolini in 1938. What about tojo and Hitler? And we've got these other two adversaries. You've recommended steps to help Taiwan. What about helping Israel and the other states in the Arab partnership with Israel threatened by Iran? Well, this is critical to you because what have we seen in the last few days? And something that is really unprecedented or at least in my lifetime I've never seen there was basically a Saturday Night Live sketch that came out of Saudi Arabia criticizing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. And I think that gives you a window into just how far the relationship between the United States and our traditional Arab allies in the Middle East has trade. And that is a function of the fact that the Biden administration has pursued a resurrection of the Obama Iran deal. And of course, by doing that, they are messing up all of the progress we made in the Trump administration with the Abraham accords.
Kathy Barnette Reacts to Trump Endorsement for Dr. Oz
"So tell me a little bit about your reaction to president Trump's endorsement of Doctor Oz because a lot of people were flabbergasted. Some dumbfounded some angry and some said, okay, I'll vote for us. What was Kathy Barnett's reaction? Well, I mean, you know, initially, it was a shock, right? I mean, I was downtown Philadelphia. I've been working with the Horn of Africa. There's those who will have come here from the Horn of Africa. There's over a 100,000 of those from sedans, Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, who live here at Pennsylvania, highly concentrated between Harrisburg and Philadelphia. I've been working with them for several months. They hosted a very large fundraiser for me this past Saturday, and we were registered every single person changing their registration from Democrat to Republican. That's what I was doing. And someone turned on their phone and showed me what Donald Trump had done, and of course my initial reaction was like, oh my goodness, definitely know he's not really a conservative. But very quickly thereafter, I saw when a lot of people are seeing and that is across social media, my name is on everyone's list. So like I said, I started off. President Trump's endorsement of Oz is truly one of the best things that could have happened to our campaign. A lot of
COVID Death Toll Reaches 500,0000 Mark
"The COVID toll exceeded 500 million this week, dead around the world. 500 million dead. Now it is changed into a variant that is less killing. So that China will not have the same death rate that we did in the U.S. with the first coronavirus iteration and then with the subsequent iterations that Delta omicron is not killing that many more people, but we felt the brunt of it. And I'm increasingly coming to the conclusion there is nothing that anyone could have done. Short of what they do in China, which we will not do in the United States. And their economy is not going to recover for a decade because of this. And at some point, you do what you did until we figured it out. We got the vaccine done. We rushed the vaccine out, and then you go back to
Frank James Now a Suspect in Brooklyn Shooting
"Let me begin by updating you on yesterday's shooting in Brooklyn, which began just as I left the air. Good job by Mike Gallagher of today, if you follow me on many of these stations and picking up the chaos and carnage in New York or Mike would know. I do not know Brooklyn well, of course, been there a few times over the years, but I don't know well. 33 shots fired inside of a subway train in Brooklyn. Ten wounded, 13 others treated for smoking inhalation, and Frank James, the person of interest, not called a suspect, but boy it sounds like a suspect to me. Had a 9 millimeter handgun at least one, which apparently jammed. And consumer grade fireworks. I don't know what consumer grade fireworks are. And I hatch it. Gasoline did something planned in a deeply deranged mind, obviously. He's from Milwaukee, 5 foot 5 black man dressed in green construction vest and a gray hooded sweater. So just about everything you heard yesterday was wrong at the beginning. Orange construction vest, big black man. He's a little black guy. And they can't find him. He rented a U haul truck. He's gone. He's posted rants about Eric Adams, New York's new mayor on YouTube.
How People With Machiavellian Traits Cash in on Claims of Victimhood
"We hear a lot about victimhood these days. In fact, victimhood is one of the kind of central themes of one of the major political parties. The whole politics of race of identity politics rides on the concept of victimhood. And here's a very interesting study, I see it on a website called psi post dot com. It's essentially psychological research. It's an article in the journal of personality, and social psychology is written by a whole group of academics and Brandon stretch and Carla, you know. Anyway, the theme of the article and the study is this. They're looking at people who have a personality that is sometimes associated with what's called a dark triad, a dark triad. What's the dark triad? Well, it's narcissism. It's psycho pathological conduct. And it's machiavellianism. So these are all personality traits, narcissism, of course, the sense that I am the center of the universe. Psychopathology or basically pathological, in other words, you are fundamentally you have no clear sense of right and wrong. You operate without a clear moral compass and machiavellianism you are very manipulative and you see the world, including human relations in terms of power, not in terms of fundamental values or decency. Now here's the point. They studied these personalities, people who are in this so called dark triad. And what they found is that these people are extremely good at exploiting victimhood to get what they want. They're not talking specifically about the race context, they're talking about the fact that we know when we hear about victims, it automatically arouses our sympathy. We go, oh man, that guy was obviously listened to him. This is a person who will obviously had a hard time, their ancestors had a really hard time. What a life they've had they've led. We need to reach out and help. And what the article is showing in the study showing is that some very bad people have realized that this is actually a staple part of human

They're even an organ but it's on amazon and christian books and all those places you could get it to. So yes it's easy and available. There's also a kindle version of it and one of the things. I wanted to say the number one common i've gotten about the beauty of the book is that allowed. People don't want to write in it and their space for you to write because like you said it's a hybrid it's devotional. It's a bible study in its journal all in one and so i said get yourself some really pretty pence and writes in the book because then it will be a keepsake for you and so these right in the book and Like i said it's meant to be enjoyed. It's meant to slow you down and it's meant to hopefully deep in near connection As you allow the spirit to transform him yeah. That is a good word for today my friend.

Those are the three that help us live this out limit out on a daily basis and impracticable way. And so that's really. I am a teacher at my profession. I was former high school english teacher college professor and then for the last several years teaching bible studies in my church and speaking at conferences and things so the book is written like that. It's written as a teacher would write it starting battle. You can go very easily. I set up an acronym For soul that just takes you systematically your each of the spirit. The soul part is searched stands. Stn's search and so the first thing we do is search the scriptures.

"Show it's i need more so than any other comic book plans coming up. Yeah I have to that hoping to get out by the end of the year. It's so hard to finish everything I'm working on a comic with my girlfriend. Marissa tesla's who's an amazing writer. And i'm doing art for it and it's called hellenes unions and so hopefully that'll be the end of the year and i'm working with artists matt northrup on a comic that i've written and that one is going to be awesome is tentatively named processes gift but We may change the title. But i'm really excited. You more comex this year. Not being on the road. Although i miss being on the road it has given me time to do some more project. So that way when i go back out on the road i won't be pining away to do comics are allies. Had this time to do it. Which i think is important. You know i mean. This is a good time for people to get all these projects that i've been trying to do some freelance work. I haven't had time to drama. The creative projects and the year has flown by moved. I it's it's just been like. I still have more to do. There's more that. I need to finish before we start up again. It's like slowdown. I know most everyone wants the world to be open I do too. I one hundred percent do. I'm excited about getting back out there. But this has been a gift of time. So how do you multitask everything in your life. Once it does get. What will you win when it gets back to quote unquote normal. Whatever that's gonna you know when we go back on for. There's a lot of long hours where you're not doing anything. That's why i started drawing again in the first place. You know to fill up those hours. So i'll still draw every day and just you know kind of budget time and make sure that i. I don't ever want to not give time to my art writing again. You know you can do everything. It's just like i said. Budgeting and priorities may not going out for drinks. That night and working on your art died. I know it's so in rock and roll right. So yeah i gotta do some. I do some writing tonight or some illustrated. But you know it's like i've been a million parties. My favorite party is just being on stage. So i get that every night on tour you know. I'm up there drinking shots with my best friends and and throw it down. That's my ardy. I don't need the after party anymore. I think that's where the a lot of the illusion. the rock and roll life has changed. I think people became aware of what happens when you do much of that. It's it's harder when you get older to keep that out to be honest. It's like especially with our voices i. We can't party all night. It's i wouldn't be able to this thing the next day. I've talked to like older singers about that. The fact that is certain ages had s- okay. You know what if you want to keep this going. You can't keep drinking all night long and smoking in you. Do not know how certain people do it. And i won't name names. But i know some vocalists that have just they they can. They don't drink water they they'll drink coffee and alcohol day and they still but on a great show I can't. I don't have that ability to so i think those kind richards gene. I need to baby myself. When i'm on tour. I need to make sure i get sleep. Drink tons of water and tea and you know. I only drink jaeger on the road. Because it's a nice little kind of coach throat dry you out. I guess it's a close up by asking what life lessons have have you Gained that you could impart to let your fans valuable things you've learned over the years. I think that again. You know not wasting time living your dream to the best of your ability honing your craft. You know you can't just say that you wanna be something you know i'm from out l. A. where everybody says. They're this says there that you gotta go out there and do it practice everyday. You are what you do every day. Then be willing to work as a team. That's something that when i was young. I didn't care to do so much. But as i get older. You know the magic that each of my bandmates brings to. The table doesn't go unnoticed. You know finding people that share your passion. Share your goals and are willing to work as hard as you are. That's huge and Also again expressing gratitude for everyone in your life and just saying thank you appreciate people more and i think you put things out in the world to get things back exactly cool thank you.

"Them. I worked at that hospital. Seen our ratings are going to Skyrocket cuz now we're a true crime podcast. No internet after. It was like, oh my God, they talked about a gang shooting in a hospital. That's amazing. That'll be the, that'll be the headliner clip, that'll be the headliner clip that will share about this show, you know? I mean, I even have, I mean, if we're talking True Crime, I, you know, I am. In San Bernardino, California and when that whole, you know, terrorist act happened, my daughter was involved with that. They had to shut down two of the schools that both of my grandchildren were at because I'm one of the people was actually going to the high school that my granddaughter was at. So, you know, a lot of this hits home for me. Yeah, I know we talked about True Crime. I've been involved in it, so I thought, let's shift gears and let's go from True Crime back to NLP cuz I think NLP is so incredibly powerful. So it is share a little bit more about how we can all use em in our lives and the power of NLP. I can tell you the one thing that I think in L. Lee really helps people with on an everyday basis is refraining and what the way you look at something is not going to be the way it actually is and I can say, you know, if somebody says to me, well, she doesn't like me. But how do you know that, right? I go back with the person and I say, well, how do you know that that person doesn't like you? I just you know, I just know, right? And and they don't. And so it's all about reframing. It's like a person walking down the street. All of a sudden. You see, a man pushed this woman, right? And you're thinking, wow, he just pushed her for no reason. He doesn't know her, but what they didn't realize is there was Brooks getting ready to come down on her head. And he's pushing her out of the way. Yeah, let's see. So people don't see how to reframe or what's actually happening. May not be what they think it is and so sometimes it's just it's stepped back. Look at it for what it is, you know? Or if you're having negative talk in your mind, I always tell my clients. I'm like, if you've got negative talk, you know, one person will say, oh, I don't have enough money. This is just something that I can think of off my head. People are like, I don't have enough money. Okay, well you just put that into the universe so guess. What's going to happen? You're going to get more of not having money, right? All of the stuff that you've just called in. I said so now what I want you to do, if I want you to put out into the Universe I take that back. You're going to take it back really quick and now we're going to refrain that money and we're going to say I have enough. For what I need right now. Yeah. And so abundance, what is how abundance is a great mindset to have their scarcity? There's abundance, and I love that about money is that way? You always have enough, you always have, you may not have everything you want, but you always have enough. It's just it, just you always do. Yeah, I had a, I had a client that could literally called me back and says, hey, I tried your, you know, I tried your manifestation and she said, it worked. She goes, she was actually coming back from Africa and they couldn't find a flight out, cuz they literally shut Africa down again, and she says, but I kept saying, I want to travel first class, I kept putting it on the Universe. I wrote it down. I did all of these things, and literally the day that she went to the airport, she literally flew back from Africa. First class, Yeah, it's amazing. If you just let if you just get into flow and you've let just trust what the universe has for you and you get in your lane magic happens, C, ROM. Oh yeah. Oh yeah, I mean I've had things happen to me. That people are like blown away. And I'm like, you know, I never say, I don't expect it because I, if you ask for something then you're expecting it to happen, dog? Don't push away the gift when it comes and say, oh my gosh, I wasn't expecting that to happen. Yeah, you were you were expecting because you asked for it. So when it happens to be grateful for it and so that is really the manifestations, a guy that I talked to people about because if they just take time to just again reframe, what they're thinking about start writing it down. I tell people put stickers all over Europe. Wake up in the morning, have a sticker that says hello. Beautiful. Put another sticker on another wall. That says, I'm great today, you know, because once you start feeding yourself this overtime, you really start to believe it and you start to clean out the e. Other negative self-talk that you had. I've had women that were on in our products that have cleaned themselves up and gone on to do interior design, you know, just keep doing the little things on a daily basis but again, it's consistency. That's going to count with that. Absolutely. All right. Carla. You ready for a good one? You ready? We're going deep. All right. What is your? Why why do you get up? What is Carla? Get up in the morning. What drives you? What? What? What allows you to get up out of bed? Why? Because I was put on this Earth for a purpose and it took me a long time to really find my purpose. And that is really when I'm when I'm at my best life, helping others. And I'm, I'm pretty much kind of pouring into them. And so, what I mean by that is I have been in corporate for a long time and I've had teams from, you know, having 15 people under me to 831 and literally being able to have them in a room and literally just pour into them and Mentor. Them, I literally I have 231 employees. I would sit at their desks each and everyone if they need a training on something, I was there to give them that training, which then made them become a high-performance team because once I learned how to give back, it's about service and not. So once I learned how to do that, once I learned how to Mentor, once I learned how to coach and I brung I brought in LP into it because now I can build that rapport with you. Literally that is my reason for getting out because if off Can make you a better person in the end, guess what? You're going to do it to two or three or four and you're going to pay that back tenfold. Then guess what everybody comes together? You know, so I look at the world now. Yes, what we're going through what we're in, but we're going to come out of it and if we all just start to learn to work together, then we're going to be a better place, and we're starting to open up our eyes to different things as well. And because I'm going to open up our eyes. People are like looking and saying, okay, yes you might be different but that's okay. That's a good thing because I don't want you just like me. And so that's really really dear to my heart is people you just live authentically people are going to accept that I had just a sidebar. I was I was on LinkedIn the other day and I read about this guy and he's known for saying for a Chuck Berry and some other people. But what he's really known for is literally having Klu Klux Klan. Now mind you, he's a black man sitting down with the top of the club. Slam the guy ended up turning giving him his cap in his gown and everything and about. I think fifty-four more actually did the same thing to me. That's a why bring love to this world. Bring knowledge. This world apply that knowledge and then everybody can actually live together. Wow. Wow, okay, that's just from a power of a conversation and that's what I love about, podcasting is. It's the power of conversation off..

"Am so good. Thank you so much for being here. We are live on clubhouse with a with an audience, and it's so much fun to do it that way. Because what's going to happen is what's going to happen. So there you go, that's all I can say. So, welcome to the show, really thrilled to have you here. I love that. You are so powerful. I love your motivation. I am your photograph. Girl, you a badass. Like really like I just look at you like dang, I love that. So there's a lot to Carla. Like a lot. So let's unpack. So I don't know if we should dive into your Finance background, your leadership background, your fashion, or your beauty background, but I'm going to let you just spinning wheel and you tell me cuz we're going to dive deep, Get Ready, Get rid of that. That's a, that's a hard one cuz there's there's so many ways that they can go. I can basically start off from the beginning of having a son died and being in the hospital and watching how everything transpired, which led me into my corporate career working in healthcare, for the last thirty years. Yeah, let's go there. So I have a daughter who is fourteen years old eight years ago and she had four strokes and was in a coma had brain surgery so I can totally relate. I just a little PTSD when you she survived barely but she did survive. So let's unpack that and Thursday Definitely a story of transformation. I think that's where everything for me started and so I think going back to that time having to go bury your son who's 22 months old, you know, a marriage that failed because you had a son that that died in and neither one could really communicate or connect anymore on a level between husband and wife. Literally everything just came down, my job was great. I was working for a different company. I was working for Dean Witter Reynolds, as a sales assistant, making great money. And I just realized that that was not where I needed to go, but through the whole thing off and kind of taking you fast-forward. It was one of those things where I kept trying to find a job, kept trying to go for a nine-to-five kept trying to do, the do certain things. And literally was making no money or either, I was being fired because I just found no thrill in what I was doing within the Healthcare System, right? So it took me literally to come out of Health Care off. Still working in it, after thirty years, but to come out and do something different, which led me into Makeup and Hair Artistry. I love that. So, you know, I had to get into something different because having an analytical mind I was losing myself and so the creativity side was going everything that I was doing. I mean, I was, you know, talking to people, it dealing with numbers, you know, and not like a really engaging with them as people. So I I kind of lost that feminine energy and literally, I had more of my masculine energy and literally didn't trust anybody. So, I had to find something. So I took up singing and then I went into hair and and makeup and then went in even deeper into digital makeup. So, being able to do that, I saved was a vice to get me to where I am right now because being able to make up, you know models. I mean, I've literally done covers. I've been in fashion weeks, you know. So big Able to be behind the scenes and really talked to models and see what their problems were. I take one story and I tell you, one girl sat in my chair, she said, Carla, make me beautiful. And I'm looking at her like, she's crazy. And I said, what do you mean? Make you beautiful? She goes, I just found out that my boyfriend, a five years has been cheating on me for the last three of those five years and we're walking down the runway today together. Wow. So that literally I had a chance to either say girl you need to leave him and go a different path or I could just sit there and listen and see where she wants to go running a specific questions. That was my number one mark of me saying where I could literally help and be a coach in people's lives. But you know what? I was going to just jump in home, I think it's important to make a distinction of this model who's going through some severe trauma finding out that boyfriend has been cheating and people will say, oh you know, make me look beautiful. Well, and look, she's a model. She probably was actually gorgeous and you're just going to add like a little bit of essence here, a little bit of essence there. And I think the distinction that I got when you said that for sure, was that Carla? I really need to do something for me and it's time for me at this very moment before I go out and give everything I have for some self-care. So, if you could really just treat me and spoil me, that's what I think she was asking, would that be accurate? That would be accurate, that would be accurate. Just because going on to talk to her boss, really kind of brought everything out. Brought everything up, she didn't understand it, she had a crying moment and so sorry about that, my computer control off the device, you want for him for me to do that. As I said turned on. There we go. So going dealing with her in that area. Once she was actually made up took me about an hour to give her the look that she actually wanted for or for the designer. We were dealing with, but at the end of it all, she literally kissed me. She thanked me because I didn't give her information of like everybody else would say, leave. You need to do this, I said, girl, you look beautiful. You need to make a decision. Do you want to stay with them? Do you want to go? You know, what are your, what are your choices? What do you thinking? Where are you at right now? And Soul by asking the right question. Literally, I can tell you today and it's been probably eight years. They're still together. What she learned from me is really how to set boundaries home and talk to them. There you go. Well that's boundaries is like my thing. I'm all about the boundaries it makes life so much simpler. It does it does. And even with my own life I didn't have any boundaries, you know, when I was actually younger, I had absolutely none and as I got older and I started getting literally fired from jobs because I just wouldn't stick up for myself. You know, people would put me as a scapegoat, you know, when I'm like, wait a minute, I'm doing what you're telling me to do, but yet I'm the one getting fired, let go because of it. That's what I really realized. I had to really turn internally and say, what is it about me? Because this is about me. I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong to figure out how to fix myself. And a lot of people don't see that because they're they want to say okay it's the other person's fault, it's the other person you know they fired me. There was nothing that I did wrong, but if you really kind of go deep inside, you'll find out that there was, there are some insecurities that you have that led to that or putting something out into the universe, such as I.

"Before things got big. This was in the in the early eighties. Eighty five and i also notice that when we got to this apartment like i was obsessed with turning over forks and looking at tablecloths and everything in the house was made in italy and i was like wow this country sustains itself because backing connecticut everything was getting huge supermarkets and this little downtown that we had with a butcher shop in a fish market and everything was all closing down and and then i had this one memory of it's called the night of san lorenzo when there's a lot of shooting stars so we went up into the hills you could see the the adriatic coast and then we just sat there in. The sky was so clear and they were shooting stars everywhere. And i just said i wish i could live here someday. I was. I was totally hooked. I was thinking. Why did my grandparents leaves paradise. Yeah so that trip clearly had a huge impact on you And i guess when you went to college went to connecticut college i went to connecticut. College wanted to stay close to home. Because i didn't know if my father was gonna be alive or not. So that's where that's where in in your dad. Your dad passed away pretty soon after that trip. He did a couple of days before actually started college. Well and it got to the point where you had to decide your major so i was looking through the book and i said let me look in italian and it said if you majored in italian and you have financial aid. You have to spend a year abroad in italy and the program covers like your -partment which is stepping mouse mats me. That's me a half to go. It's calling me. So you end up spending your junior year abroad in italy and that year would be like chains rest of your life because year you met the man who would eventually become your husband and business partner rodolfo. How did you guys. how did you meet. yeah he. He was a friend of one of these distant relatives that i had that lived in modena. And he said oh. Let's my mother said. I should come and pick you up and take you to her house so you can say hi to her so we went to his house and been had just pulled up because his best friend live next door wasn't your husband. Yes he was gone as soon as i saw. I was like if. I'm pretty enough for you. You're my man. i just knew it. he was just. I don't know it just had this feeling and you hit it off right away. We were just friends. I mean we would. I would go in italy. When you're that when you're that age you have like this group of friends. And they all go out together. So on friday or saturday nights they would say. Hey do you wanna come to modern. Go out with us so the girls would sit on one side of the table. The guys would sit on the other and they would just talk all night long and i was. I'd get bored. You know they were talking about things like oh. Have you ever heard of like band row. They have these roll ons now. That work as the and i was like. Oh my god but They would always sit next to him because he didn't have a girlfriend. Was he a student. He actually had just finished military service and he had previously studied agriculture in bologna but his family had had some financial hardships so he had to go to work. So i guess youtube start dating and as a certain point you go back to the us to finish college. But then you return to italy in yoon rafa moving together right. yes and what. What were you both doing. He was working as agricultural company. And i had my first and only job as a translator but after a couple of months i got yelled at because i translated stainless steel to inox sizable stealing. It was an important company to those important. You know customer so the man who ran the place took me in his office and just yelled. I'm in. I just looked at me said i quit. You know so i. I've only had one job in my life and it was like two months and we were already having a hard time making ends meet. because in italy pe- people don't really make a lot of money in fear. Parents don't have something. It's almost impossible to get ahead and i didn't wanna be like my parents always worrying about money. I wanted to have a family. I wanted to. I wanted to do things. So i was very motivated to to get ahead. You wanted to start a business. I did and so i convinced my husband to go to the united states because one day i was like kind you can open up businesses states for like two hundred dollars and he said okay. Well so you convinced him and by the way to speak any english now. He studied german school so he knew no english. You convince him rodolfo. You convince them to go to the us and you're not married at this point right now but we did have to get married for him to get it. I got you just like he called. My my cousin was like a justice of the peace and we signed the papers. That was you get married to come back to the us and now what was the idea. What was the business you. we're gonna do. The first business idea was to move to miami and open up dna hut at the beach. So paige dina is like the flat bread that they make on the adriatic coast and they have these striped huts. And you just stuff them with pursued or ci user greens or tomatoes and that was our idea so we drove to southern florida and we actually stayed in a campground in a tent and it was very frustrating. Because nobody was going to give you the permit to open up in a hut in miami beach and so one night. I went to bed and i left my sneakers tent and when i woke up in the morning i put them on with no socks and there were these little teeny fire ants inside the sneakers and my feet and it was so painful. I looked at my husband. I started to cry. And i said let's go back to connecticut. I can't take it anymore. All right and you go back to connecticut. Did you go back to new london where he grew up. We love of my parents. I didn't have any with my mother. I didn't have any money so we were in the kitchen brainstorming and my brother and his friend were there. And i said we're going to open a fresh pasta shop with lake prepared sauces in the first town called mystic connecticut. And they were like you'll never make it. You need to make sandwiches and grinders and things like that so connecticut. Yeah so i was like all right all right so we found this man who made this really good italian bread. It was like twenty minutes away and so we would go. We would leave our house. Alight five in the morning. Pick up the whole load of bread. And and then i would weave in some italian thing soleil made. I made spinach pie. And we found an empty store and it was only five hundred dollars a month. We couldn't really afford a or anything. So i actually painted the windows backwards in red paint and this was. This was in like the late eighties. Right get was ninety one. Oh wow so if. I have my cinematic history correct. This is after mystic pizza. The movie came out probably. We didn't get many tourists though. It was premature local spy. And we also. My brother had loaned us five thousand dollars and we took fifteen hundred of that and bought this old famer cappuccino machine so we were the first people in town have cappuccino machine and.
"carla" Discussed on How I Built This
"We spend a lot of time. Researching founders and their brands but every once in a while an idea grows from something we come across in our daily lives and about a year ago in the supermarket. I noticed box of gluten. Free spaghetti made from cassava flour intrigued. So i bought it and it was pretty great. The brand was called jovial. And i'd already been using their diced tomatoes and rice pastas and my cooking. For a few years they make olive oil and tomato paste and even cookies all produced in italy. But the brand is probably best known for its pasta's made from a wheat called. I'm corn and because i'm a sucker for stories on boxes i read about. How jovial helped revive this ancient on hybridize wheat. A type of wheat. That is not genetically modified so some people with gluten sensitivities can actually eat it anyway. I decided to dig around to find out more about the brand. I came across the story of karla bartolucci carla and her husband rodolfo grew jovial from shaky startup into a national multi million dollar brand over the past decade. They were inspired by their own daughter. Who had a sensitivity to wheat gluten but the journey to building jovial was filled with personal tragedy failures bad business partners and very slow growth. So i called up carla and we ended up having a wonderful rich conversation about her life about her working class upbringing in connecticut and most importantly about our mutual love of cooking in the weeks after the interview we stayed in close touch. Carlos sent me her on sour dough. Starter i sent her photos of my cornflower pizzas and then a few weeks ago. I received a small bottle of balsamic vinegar from modina. She wrote this ball. Sammy comes from one of the oldest vinegar makers in mota enjoy this black gold. Which i did and then a few days ago i got a call. That left me stunned after a very brief illness. Carla are lucci died unexpectedly at the age of fifty three. Even though we never met face to face it still felt like losing a good friend. And while carla wasn't a household name she was well known in the specialty food business and widely respected for her vision and integrity so while there are a lot of important business lessons to learn from this episode. We wanna think of it mostly as a tribute to her remarkable life and career a life that began in new london. Connecticut or carla grew up. The granddaughter of four italian immigrants. Food was really important to my family. My both my mother and father were really really good. Cooks my mother. She was just effortless in the kitchen. I never can remember one bad meal. Maybe one but she would also make vegetables really good she knew how to clean artichokes and cook them with parsley and garlic and a little white wine so that when you eat them they just melted in your mouth so as a kid i would just walk by this huge bowl of artichokes and just plop them in my mouth. They were so good. She made fresh ravioli. Yawkey tie attala with all kinds of sauces and you know my dad. He was a great cook to he. Didn't cook that often but he would make cabbage and bean soup. I'd never be able to ride. Can't replicate the flavor and you know my died. He he was fishing. So he had a lobster boat and lobster pots and we had a ping pong table in our basement. And i still remember that. Ping pong table being lined with trays of lobsters stuffed lobsters relatives and he also made wine in our cellar. We made wine and it was nice. You know but at the same time. I was growing up in america. And so i think when the My grandparents immigrated they didn't wanna be italian. They wanted to be american so they tried to lose their accent but they held onto these food traditions. Where you grew up in connecticut was it. Italian was irish. Was like most people of waspy. What you remember about the people in your in your town. I mean there was basically italy. People would choose a town that was similar to where they came from and so a lot of people there lived came from this one area of fun. Oh it's called and they actually developed a neighborhood that was called the fort and on the other side of the town was kind of the nice beach. Area were more wealthy people lived and my father was able to buy a piece of land on the night side of town and build a house for us so i grew up in a neighborhood with people who are better off than us. So tell me about what your dad did for a living. He was a bricklayer. Did he have like a small business. That he ran he tried. I mean he really wanted to own his own business but he had four children and so he ended up just working for construction companies. So your data's a bricklayer and you had three siblings other siblings. Were you the youngest. By the way. I was the youngest and Were you will you. The only girl. I was the only girl. Oh you're surrounded by boys. Yes so i was very competitive in at a young age because i just felt this pressured like to do good at just to do things that they were doing. Yeah all right so you grew up your growing in connecticut and from what i understand when you were sixteen year. Father was diagnosed with cancer. Yes my parents sat us down in the living room and told us and the next day i went to high. I was in high school in english class. And my friend's father owned the funeral home in town. And i said you know my father has cancer. Is that bad. I didn't even know what it was. And she just looked at me like yeah. Very bad and so That weekend. I asked my mom to drive me to the health food store. Missiles little teeny health food store had never been in. But i saw it when we were driving past it to go to the supermarket and i walked in and you know it smelled like full awful mix and was kind of weird you know with all the bulk bins and and i went to the section where they had books and i noticed the macrobiotic. I think that time it was called cure for cancer. It was a long time ago. And i asked my mom to buy and then i came home and i was like dad. I'm going to cure you of cancer. Mccook and he just he just was not interested. How old was your dad. When he was diagnosed he was he was fifty six. Wow but he had been to italy to reconnect with these relatives. Spy on his own wants and his final wish was to go back there so he was very very sick but he took one of my brothers. And i and we were therefore monkey. He wanted to go to italy knowing that he did not have a longtime love now. He died a few months later. He was also a little sick bear it but but the trip was amazing. That.
