"So one of the things that I have said to the Republican Party on the issue of life is let us not start at the extremes. Problem solving is different than politics. There are real opportunities to limit abortion in real ways. And Somehow. Republicans and Democrats have never come together on something that the vast majority of people agree on the vast majority of Americans agree that abortion for any reason at all after five months is wrong. And yet, we haven't made progress on that. Despite having pieces of legislation in front of us, that's because playing politics on the extreme. You're either pro choice in any abortion. Anytime is okay or you're pro-life, and there is no middle ground, and we have to pass amendments on Person Hood. We're not making progress. And so. Let's focus on making progress where people agree and actually solving a problem. Let's start there I would also say this. That if we care so deeply about unborn life, and I do because I think every life has enormous potential in his gifted by God and I think abortion is used discriminated against poor people people of color. But, if we care about life, it's unborn. We need to care about life. That's in this world. Who and that means we actually have to make progress on criminal justice reform and police reform, and we have to stand up recognized systemic racism and structural racism make real progress on that, because true many lives that are here are being wasted and ignored and dismissed and overlooked and sadly. Murdered in broad daylight. Let's take a quick break. We'll be back with more carly Fiorina talking about where this all heads to in a moment.

"Welcome to the ticket I must've air. President trump is flailing his poll. Numbers are way down. All the empty seats at his Tulsa Rally left him to trudge back to the white. House people made fun of him and Republicans have begun to signal a kind of worry about him. That has been in the past four years. All the same few have taken big public stances against him on today show though we have someone publicly oppose the president and is now ready to go the full step further. Carly Fiorina is a conservative Republican. Who ran for the two thousand sixteen nomination. You may remember her duke it out with trump. Facing down a sexist attack from him and being announced as Ted, Cruz is running mate in a last ditch attempt to stop the reality Star from winning the Republican nomination. Even before politics, fury, and ahead quite a background. She rose from working as the secretary to being the first woman to run a fortune fifty company as the CEO of Hewlett Packard. Now, she runs unlocking potential a group that works to encourage diversity among corporate leadership. She join me to discuss president trump the Republican party, and how her thinking has evolved recently..

"Was a surprise. I think a second surprise though honestly was I love talking to voters people talk about. Oh my gosh. Campaigning is such a drag. I loved campaigning. I loved the voters. I'm loved Iowa New Hampshire I mean I. It was a wonderful adventure that I wouldn't trade. Tell me about the morning you knew you had to get out. It was obvious. I mean I'm a realist. You know I I I've said I don't mind long odds but I don't Tilt at windmills. I don't swing fences. I'm not an idealist I'm I'm pretty pragmatic and it was very clear. I mean we had had a very disappointing showing in Iowa We had a disappointing showing in New Hampshire. We had outlasted senators and governors governors and everything else but it was clear there was no path so it's time to get out everything that I have read about you and heard you say recently carly makes me if I were a betting woman which I sometimes say that I would put money on you running again. Will you run for president again. I have no idea and I'm not trying to be coy. I have no idea you know first of all because I'm a realist. Because I'm a pragmatist. It's not simply about Out Me making a decision. It's about many other things in the environment. Many other things in the context politics right now running as a Republican I. I don't think that's something. I have an interest in doing right now because the Republican Party right now now seems to be all about pledging fealty to donald trump no matter what and I'm just not in that place. Do you do you speaking of the Republican Party de Recognize. Recognize the Republican. I don't I I have spoken publicly about the fact that in this country. We pledge allegiance agents to a flag and we pledge of loyalty to the Constitution not to a party and not to a president. And so I I think that's all about politics. The politics of winning the party is focused on winning. Just Democrats are too by the way and so I I think Republicans are behaving the way they do because they think it's going to help them win. You know president both President Bush's President George H W Bush and and president Bush forty three did not vote for president trump. Did you Carly Fiorina vote for president trump. Yeah I actually did. And I've been very disappointed pointed. I did I felt that Hillary Clinton also was corrupt. I think there's a lot of evidence of that. I thought what I did not agree with her from a policy point of view. I thought she was dismissive and disrespectful to too many issues and too how many people honestly I thought she acted entitled to the job and I thought well all right. We're GONNA give this guy a chance. I must say. I have been bitterly disappointed. Will President Trump get your vote in twenty twenty Assuming he's on the ticket you don't honestly it depends who the Democrats put up and I won't go any further than that right Biden. It depends on the Democrats put a so. Let's just play a few scenarios. Joe Biden the Mike Bloomberg. Let's really not because again. It's one of the things I learned in politics. Honestly yes is never answer a hypothetical I hear you. There is a scenario though in which president trump does not get your vote and and and a candidate from the Democratic Party could that there is a scenario and one of the reasons for that. I I think it's worth explaining. Why because people evaluate these things differently? And I'm on the record saying this character matters conduct counts so I will have people say to me. Yes but the economy's doing great. Yep It is and I give him credit for it No more than any president. You should get credit. But he's done some of the right things I agree with him on some of the issues. I disagree with them strongly on others but for me a Character matters character is destiny for party for a nation for president conduct matters and Some of this conduct like publicly berating. A decorated war veteran who shows up in response to a lawfully issued subpoena of Congress. I think that conduct is not just unbecoming. I think it's destructive to our book so looking net net you compliment him on the economy and some other other things take major issues with other Moves he's made and things. He said his president trump. Who did eventually get your vote in In the last election has he been a net positive for America. I don't know I think the jury's out and I think it's one of those things where time will I'll tell the economy by the way Obama get some credit for the economy too. I mean presidents take in many ways too much blame in too much credit the economy but he's I trump is undoubtedly done some of the right things. I do. Think that the systematic this dramatic tearing down of people institutions political opponents. We'll have long lasting damage. If it goes on for much longer so I think time will tell what was it like took run for President Against Donald Trump and then we have a few clips that I'd like to play for you in a moment. Well they say. Donald Trump sucked all the oxygen out out of the room immediately. And by the way the media's complicit in this and one of the things that I think never had we talked about introspection I think we would be better goff if the Democratic Party would be introspective. And say you know. Here's some things we did that lost the election. I think we would be better off if the media would be introspective and say. Here's some things we did. That helped him win. I think it would definitely be better off. If Donald Trump would be introspective but introspection and reflection is lacking in general. You met with him after he won. Yes I during the transition right. You went to trump tower. You met with him. As is is the reporting is about The position of Director of national intelligence is that right We never talked about a specific position. There was all kinds of there. Were people who wanted me did he want. I don't think so. So why do you think he wanted to meet with you. Because I think it's what you do I think he had the people who were telling him he should meet with me now. I think he smartly understood. It was important for him to meet with all of his his opponents and I believe he did and I think when the president-elect asks you to come meet with him you meet with him did he apologize for what what he had said about you no nor did I expect it nor did I ask for it. You told my friend and colleague. Se Cup on this network. That president trump quote wasn't the only man I faced nastiness. Yeah from on the campaign trail who else and why did they do. What did they say? Ooh I let me just say I face this all my life. Our men making comments about my appearance positive or negative. Goodness been there done that honestly when my campaign staff told me what he said about me. My Reaction Action was to laugh. It was like all of course he would say that so They were more upset about it than I was the example that I will give you is. I was in a debate and I was. I told a story from my personal life and a very well. Well known he shall remain nameless. He knows who he is. A very well known radio host conservative radio host tweets Out Carly Fiorina just played the vagina card. I guess he said that because I was a woman telling my story but you know really I mean really so this stuff goes on all the time in truth. Donald Trump gave me an opportunity. But I never expected apology for what opportunity to take it. He gave me an opportunity in the clip. That you're playing the People Mr Arena. I want to ask you about this in an interview last week in Rolling Stone magazine. Donald Trump said the following about you quote. Look at that face. Would anyone one vote for that. Can you imagine that the face of our next president Mr Trump later said he was talking about your persona not your appearance. Please feel free to respond what you think about his persona. You know it's interesting to me. Mr Trump said that he heard Mr Bush very he clearly and what Mr.

"Lot of people in their twenties. WHO Party a lot? And so we sort of We were in denial for too long. And then it got to the point where it was was clear. This was a complex multi substance addiction. made worse honestly in many ways. By why the predilection of doctors to prescribe thanks. In all the truth is you can go see a psychiatrist and get prescribed stuff in ten or fifteen in minutes and so she got caught up in the same sort of addiction that so many have gotten caught up in. We spent many years and many tears and many hours trying to help her. And of course in the end Attest to make a decision themselves. You can't do it for them for many years. I couldn't talk about it and I number one because I couldn't get through it but secondly honestly because I think there was a part of me that was ashamed. That was embarrassed. That was Afraid that people would think. Wow what a terrible parent. You must have been a terrible mother mother. Couldn't you have done something. And so at a certain point I decided I I have to be able to speak about this. Because maybe it'll be helpful to someone what else And I think it has been helpful to others and so that has been helpful to us. uh-huh why have spoken to countless parents who have lost their children in the past few years because of the opioid what happened in this country. Who are living through what you felt that? Shame that inability to really talk about it. Because they didn't even know that their child Gal was even using any any substance. What is your message to America because this is the epidemic now but it will be something else later and it it? It hits every socioeconomic level every race every neighborhood It is it is a crisis in this country victory and as someone who has run the company run for president maybe running for something again. We'll talk about that and you know what. What is your message? Edge to America and to those in power at this point about addiction in this country and this epidemic. Well I in terms of move treatment and recovery. I think addiction is the classic case of what I talk about not all the time. which is people closest to the problem? Know best how to solve it. The best counselors are people who have overcome addiction themselves. How's the best programs are those that are grounded in a local community so that someone who gets through recovery actually has a community unity to return to part of what has to happen so many of the fixes are local? And it's why from from a policy point of view I think more money needs to flow locally. There are some things the federal government can do hippo laws. Get in the way. Honestly I mean hip. Allies were designed to protect people's privacy but the impact they actually have sometimes too often is to isolate someone from everyone. WHO's trying to help them? Um I can remember desperately trying to find doctors. Our daughter was going but I can't and when we finally found someone and they said I can't tell you anything they at least had the heart to say I can listen to you but I can't tell you anything. And so part. Part of what happens with addicts. Is they get isolated and they get they spend all their time with people like them and they're divorced from those was who can help them and it is an enormous waste of potential and I am delighted that the state's attorneys-general general are suing these drug companies. Because there's no question that just as the cigarette companies knew that cigarettes were addictive. The drug companies knew with these drugs were addictive and they did not level with people and they were over prescribed and the medical community is complicit as well you grew up with a fear of death. Yes isn't that child and you've gotten over it. You told a reporter for the National Review. I believe it was that when you're running for president you said I'm not afraid of anything anymore. So there's a lot of progress. Why were you scared to die? When I don't know I ah in thinking about it as an adult? I think it must have been because I knew that my father's father had died when he was Zhang and that my mother's mother had died when she was young and so there was this sense of sudden sure traumatic loss that suffused the Family Lor and so i. My fear was my parents are going to die suddenly and then my I'm going to die suddenly must be why so. How did you go from being afraid? Afraid of dying young too as a candidate for president being able to say. I'm not afraid of anything anymore. Really nothing nothing. Nothing scares Carly Fiorina practice. Honestly what I mean by practice is practice in overcoming fears. Everything I feared in my life has happened to me not dying but I feared my mother would go unexpectedly and I. I wouldn't be able to reach her and speak to her time it happened. I fear getting cancer. I feared child dying. I feared bad headlines. Everything I've been afraid of in my my life. I feared the Strip club. I feared looking like a fool. I feared all these things. Some of those fears were profound. Some of them were silly but the point is every the time I got through one of them. Yeah I was less afraid and so- practice makes perfect when it comes to learn courage and becoming fearless. Okay so you brought up the Strip club which obviously going to bring up for those. Who Haven't read your book yet? This is the moment. Meant when you're working your way up the corporate ladder and this is where you argue. Name your fear so who took you do the Strip club and why. Why did it eventually help you? Well first of all I wasn't working my way up the corporate ladder. Being far too general you know I was at the bottom of the corporate ladder and I had no notion Russian of working my way up the corporate ladder. This was my first job outside of the secretarial pool and finally getting an MBA. I mean I was a nobody I had honestly. My prayer prayer at the end of each day was please let me keep my job. I thought I was GONNA get fired every day because I didn't know what I was doing so I wasn't working my way up but my colleague colleague who I had been paired with and you can imagine he was not thrilled with this. Who is this young woman? She doesn't she. You can't teach me anything or bring any value. And he kind of wanted to scare me out of my job and so he did honestly what he always did. He always went to a strip club. Love for lunch with these particular clients. That's what they did and they thought why should I change it for her. So he said we're going to the Strip club you can't come. Sorry you're not GonNa meet the clients. I was scared really scared. I was scared of looking stupid which I did. I was scared of going into a screwed. Could've club I never been in such a situation but the more I thought about it what I realized I was even more afraid of is not being given the chance to do my job trying to scare me out of doing my job and so I decided I gotta show up. I gotTA show up and you know you've heard the old saying life showing up optus half the battle. It actually is half hour more argue. It's more so I showed up and once I showed up it wasn't as terrifying as I thought and the young women were very kind to me and everything in the office changed because people decided I had a little more guts than they realized and they decided he was kind of a classless guy for putting me in the situation in the first place again courage you went when when have you been most courageous in your life. And what have you been leased courageous. I don't know the thing. I The reason I'm hesitating over that question is I do think I am least courageous. When I don't stop and think about it I think courage takes reflection? It takes introspection and so if I react in the moment to something I am not likely to be my best if I take the time to think.

I feared my mother would go unexpectedly and I wouldn't be able to reach her and and speak to her in time it happened. I fear getting cancer. I feared a child dying. I feared bad headlines. Everything I've been afraid of in my life. I feared the Strip club. Yes the Strip club. Wait until you hear that story. She calls herself a problem solver and says that's why she decided sighted to run for president after running against then candidate trump in two thousand sixteen. Does she think the president should now be impeached. I think it is vital that he be impeached. Do you recognize the Republican Bill Right now. Actually will you run for our president again. I have no idea. I don't think that's something. I have an interest in doing right now because the Republican Party right now seems to be all about pledging fealty. Donald trump no matter. What and I'm just not in that place? Let's jump right in with Carly Fiorina Carly theory and it's a pleasure. Thank you very much. Thank you we're going to start in a place where most of us don't start and then we're going to back up into your childhood and and all of those formative years. I would like to begin because you were the first woman to run a fortune fifty company. You were splashed across magazine covers. You became famous overnight. Frankly and then you say I was fired in board room brawl. So take me back to that morning. You're walking into each P.. You know you're not going to be at that company company anymore and it's not going to be pretty what was going through your head. Well what was going through. My head is frankly I was being fired over a matter. Our principal for me. I had board members who were leaking confidential board conversations to the media. I had board members who were trying to manage the company and put their favorite people into jobs that those favorite people couldn't do and so I had issued an ultimatum of sort part to my board and said this behavior has to stop. And if it doesn't either you go or I go and so the board got together and I knew fundamentally finally that the board would not have the courage to expel fellow board members and so I pretty much figured I was going to be the one to go. My husband was assuring me no no. They would never do that. They would never do that so I was prepared for for what came but more importantly I had made my own choices. I didn't feel like a victim. I could have said to them. Okay all is forgiven. Sure done a lot of things to keep my job. I chose to stand on my principles because I thought it was important and so it was terrible obviously The press that followed was terrible but I was prepared and it didn't crush me and unfortunately a year later those board members got fired fired in the company went through a terrible time. Do you think that it actually eventually made you a stronger person. Perhaps a better candidate when he ran for president he I think any time we get through setback or difficulty or face our fears. We are stronger and better as a result of it. I think that's always true. And so at that time my fear was oh my gosh. Yeah if I get fired heard the headlines will be horrible they were and they were but my greater fear honestly was I'm going to sell my soul and be left trying to do a job without the requisite authority to do it and that was worse to make. What is the most important decision decision you have ever made to be true to yourself? It sounds so corny to not sell. Oh your soul you know I think in life we have to make that decision over and over again the first time I made it was perhaps when I dropped out of law school because I figured it wasn't for for me the most visible time I made it perhaps was when I decided to let myself get fired on principle or maybe it was when when I decided I wasn't going to support A nominee or president that. I can't support but the point is I think are difficult. Decisions are always. He's the ones that perhaps cost us in the short term but strengthen us in the long term and define us and it's why I say to people all the time don't don't sell your soul. No one will ever pay you back. Nothing we'll ever pay you back if you sell your soul and there are many temptations to do so along the way till let's go back to to that brave decision to drop out of law school and you start your new book. Find your way here you are at your parents house you are in the shower yes shower important decisions and you have a realization that you don't have to do this but it's it's what your dad wants you to do and it's what you think you should do what happens. Well you have to. I have to say that I was apparent pleaser. I was a people pleaser. That was my core competence. I pleased people and so I was born in the family. Who always did what my parents said? I was the good girl and so it wasn't just that I was disappointing. Them it was that I was acting completely inconsistently with the way they had always expected me to act and so I really was very afraid. It seems so silly now but honestly the thing that I was afraid of is. They're not gonNa love me as much if I disappoint them in this way they didn't he didn't take it. Well no neither one of them well. But but on the other hand the revelation I had in the shower was I can't live a life for someone else and I don't like the life I'm living so I had to dry off and the suit up and March downstairs and say the words I quit. Dad was a law professor law school dean later appointed a deputy attorney general. I mean here you are not pleasing your parents walking walking away from the path. They think you're going to be on need to be on your. Your father said something that really struck me which was essentially like I. I don't know if you're GONNA amount to anything. Of course. He denied it in later years. But specific I would not forget this specifically what he said was. I'm very disappointed appointed dagger to the heart for parents policing child. I'm afraid you're not going to amount to anything now. In retrospect backed thank goodness. He didn't say will you can always get married or it doesn't really matter what you do right. I mean I would have rather her. Had Him challenged me in the way that he did. Well what are you going to do then. SORTA say it didn't matter but it was harsh. Did you ever make him proud. Oh my Gosh yes they ask why my dad would deny he ever said We parents have selective memory yes Yes of course. I made him proud and I made my mother proud and and I hope I still make them around. What was she like? What was her open her life like because you you you've talked about in the book something that I believe give you said she told you what you are is God's gift to you what you make of yourself is your gift to God so my mother in another the era would have been a CEO? Perhaps she had a very unhappy childhood. Her mother died when she was ten. She was raised by a very Callous stepmother her father did not support her desire her to go on and be educated in college. said it wasn't for girls so she ran away from home at eighteen and joined the women's Air Corps in World War. Two Pretty Gutsy decision just got on a bus and Latte. I'd say so. She was gutsy woman and had a lot of What we would call rectitude? You know. That's an old fashioned word.

"Carly Fiorina, former chairman, and CEO of Hewlett Packard, and blah, blah, blah, presidential candidate and vice presidential candidate and good friend and really good person. Who? I got to know fairly well, and I just admire her so much. She is she is written new book that is not about politics. And I think it's far more important. Welcome to the program Carly Fiorina. Thank you. Good morning. Glenn? So good to talk to you can't talk to you. So Carly it's so strange that you write this book because I my father died a few years ago, and my father really shaped my life, and and shaped my thinking in so many ways and for reasons not worth getting into now. I lost a lot of that after he died and. I've been trying to figure things out. I went to Tony Robbins. I spent some time with Tony Robbins. And and and that is helped get my my Mojo back in many ways and trying to, you know, take control of my of my own power in my own mind, and and worked to my potential. It's a hard thing to do if you don't know a few basic secrets. To grab onto your own potential and to realize that you have. A a lot of power in you as an individual. Well, that's exactly why wrote this book, which is called signed your way. And I wrote it now because honestly, I think so many people feel the way you felt after your dad died, so many people feel kind of helpless, and powerless, and hopeless, and they look at institutions that they thought were supposed to be solving problems and making things better. They're disappointed by so many people who call themselves leaders because they have positions and titles, and yet what I've learned from my own life. But more importantly from the lives of so many people I've met in so many different places along the way. Here's some fundamental things. That are true all of us have more potential than we realize period. Number two, people closest to the problem know best how to solve it always whether they're given the opportunity to do. So where they think it's their job to do. So or they have the resources to do. So if there's a problem that impacts each of us, we actually know what would make it better. And number three. Leadership onto mentally the purpose of leadership position or title, or wealth or fame. It's to solve problems and change the order of things for the better and leaders are made in the end leadership is a choice. And so what I talk about in this book is what does it take to lead some fundamental things that are really hard to learn, but they are within each of our capacity to learn things like courage. We're all afraid how do you get over your fears character, we're all tempted to do the easy thing instead of the right thing, we're all tempted to let the ends justify any means, even if we know they're wrong. And by the way, we see that going on around us all the time things like humility an emphasis. That we lose Harley. Did we lose her because I don't hear it phones? Yes. We lost her. That's too bad. You know, it's it's amazing courage. Character, humility empathy. These are these are the things that would cure us. If we had empathy for people if we could hear a Trump supporter and not see a red hat, and you know, he's obviously a racist. And we had empathy and we said. What what makes you wear that red hat, you might find. Because I think he has the best policies, blah, blah. But you also might find because I am concerned about my job. I'm concerned about I'm concerned about the loss of the constitutional principles. That are happening. I'm concerned that nobody in Washington was trustworthy, you'd find out all kinds of things that are actually the eight you're able to you know. You know, work on and understand. Instead, we just make cartoon characters out of each other. Because we don't have empathy, and we certainly don't have we don't have humility how many how many leaders do, you know, right now on television, the people who are so called betters are humble enough to go. Wow. I got that one wrong. I really got that one wrong doesn't that? Make you more interesting personality too. Yeah. I find the people. I'm Blake Harrison. We've been talking about him a lot this weekend. I find people like that to be the most interesting types of people in my because they're they're willing to admit they made a mistake. There are in Blake's case, there's willing to have their mind changed. Yeah. And that comes from courage and character in humility and empathy Carly's back on I'm sorry. Carleen don't know how we dropped you. But she just dropped again. Oh my gosh. Third time is a third time is a charm. This is you know, at this is he's tricking us. This is Russia. Yes. Collusion with Trump. That's what Russia and Trump working together. Working to stop this interview. Right. Exactly. Right. I think I'm pretty sure anything anything bad that happens you can blame on collusion between Russia and Trump. They're very then they'll go for it. It's like a catch all what used to be global warming test scores Donald Trump and Russia colluding. That's what it is phones. Dropping that's what it is partly fee arena. Are you there? I'm back. I'm sorry. That's okay. But you couldn't hear me. Apparently. I'm so sorry. Okay. So Carly you were at courage character. Humility empathy the things that you say are really important. Yes. And seeing possibilities in even tough circumstances. But particularly seeing possibilities and other people. These have always been the core of leadership, by the way, but we're mixed up about it. Because we think it's position title also mixed up about it. Because our culture, let's face it lifts up. Everything about these things. You know, we lift up outrage conflict controversy fame, you know, we lift up all these things. And so people start to wonder do these fundamentals still matter, and yes, they do particularly if somebody wants to change the order of things for the better in their own life in their own place of work in their own sphere of influence and solve the problems in front of them. And that we can all do if we learn or relearn some basic disciplines, and I have some very practical. How to tips of you know, how to get more brave. Two things. How do you practice getting brace? So that is something I just had dinner with somebody last night who we had that very conversation about courage, and it is I mean, it was interesting, you said, courage character humility, I'm not sure which one comes first. I mean, I think character is the product of of embodiment of all these other things, but does the courage. Come before humility, I mean. How do you? How do we shape? Correct. How do we grow it? It's a package deal. And of course, one of the things one of the reasons I say, this is counter cultural right now is. First, let's knowledge everyone's afraid of something. I do a lot of work with wounded warriors. And you would think these are people who can't be afraid of anything given what they're what they've gone through. But they are they're afraid of being pitied. What are we all afraid of? I mean, there are existentialist fears. I'm afraid I'm going to die. I'm afraid my Buddy's going to die. I'm gonna fray, I'm afraid someone. I love is going to die. But the truth is most of us are paralyzed by the more superficial fear. I won't sit in. I'll make a mistake. I'll get criticized. A look foolish off fall on my face, those fears hold us back and in this culture today. My gosh, everybody wants to fit in. No, one wants to be criticized because criticism is so brutal out there, or you know, we curate our Instagram photos or life looks perfect for people. And so in order to actually change things you have to be willing to get brave and say, okay, I might make a mistake. I do have to take a risk. People will criticize me it's the price of changing things for the better. But nevertheless, I'm gonna move on. I wanna play something of this is an Instagram star yesterday. This video came out yesterday afternoon wanna play just a little bit of this, Sarah. Can you roll the Instagram star star that is that is receiving shutdown notices on some of her platforms? Hey, guys. In the middle at eight. Am I is that deleted? Yeah. I've tried to get it back. I'm calling everybody. I can't. Yeah. I don't know. Why it's so Righi Overby I've been because of this. Because I want to be on Instagram and really just recording this video. I I'm nothing without my phone. Without my phone, eight Carly, this is one of the saddest things I've ever heard. Yeah, I'm nothing without my following. Yes. And this is what our culture is lifting up right now. You know, I wrote this book for everyone who's feeling helpless, and hopeless and powerless, and especially in many ways for young people who have in normal pressure to fit in and. That is not our purpose in life. I mean, it's wonderful to have friends. It's wonderful to receive accolades, but I think there's a reason that the bible talks more about courage than almost anything else. Because all change for the better. Requires courage, bravely. One of the practical tips, I put in here is right down what you're afraid of what he did down. You know, my first business meeting ever. I started out as the secretary as you know, Glenn. But when I finally went off and got my MBA, and I landed in big corporation, and I was at this entry level job. My first meeting. I was informed that my first meeting to meet a customer was going to be held in the strip club. Because that's what men did. And because they didn't really much care for me being around. I was terrified terrified I sat for hours by myself trying to figure out on my God, what am I gonna do? And Finally, I had to write it down. What am I afraid of? And what I wrote down was I'm afraid of looking like an idiot, by the way. I did I'm afraid of being in a circumstance that I'd never been in before. And then I said, okay. What's the worst thing that happens here? I look like an idiot. But actually there's something worse, which is I get scared off. And I can't do my job. One of the things that we all need to do is stop and pause and reflect bravery anyone will tell you courage isn't the absence of fear. It's moving past fear, and we are so afraid of not fitting in, but when we all fit in guess what happens. Nothing gets better. It just all stays the same Carly Fiorina. The name of the book is find your way back in just one minute with more from Carly. Let me tell you about our sponsor this power. It is lifelock. The IRS is warning about scam..

"But we are United in our belief that people are capable of far more than they realize and leadership is always the catalyst the secret sauce. To go from what is to something that is better in terms of education for the past thirty five years since a nation at risk. We've all been bemoaning educational performance in our own country. And how we're lagging in terms of the rest of the world. You have a perspective as a businesswoman. As somebody who's run for public office to be able to see that we have really not made very much progress on this that issue talk about why you think that such a big challenge. The business community has been calling for this for decades. And we haven't really gained any traction. Now, you know, one of the things that I think it's important to be realistic about is the power of the status quo. Whatever the system is even when it's deeply unsatisfying and everybody knows it the system the status quo is very powerful the status quo in education is very powerful dislike the status quo in politics is very powerful. And the reason the status quo is all. Always powerful because because people are invested in it. There are so many vested interests not to mention political alliances around the status quo and education in order to solve education. We have to realize how powerful that status quo is. And I think as President Bush tried to do wanted to do when he came into office. We have to go back to first principles. And I think the first principle is the student is who we ought to be focused on the student is who we ought to be focused on principle number one principle number two. We cannot afford to leave any student behind our nation requires all of us would be better off if we were lifting more students up and equipping them and preparing them to be productive problem solvers in their lives and number three the resistance that is encountered Israel. It's. Powerful. And so we need powerful change warriors on the other side. It's why I happen to think charter schools while not perfect are part of that lever because they provide choice, and they put parents more in charge. But all the way back to your previous question about what makes me optimistic. So a place where the status quo was incredibly powerful, California. Incredible vested interests a group of parents banded together. In sued their local school board, and the teachers unions took them on those parents one in court, and what they were suing for was give us a choice when our kids school is failing. Wow, how fundamental if that happened in California that can happen in a lot of places. The other thing that you're doing to unlocked potential things is little interesting is that you're you're launching a podcast, and we were talking a little bit before about. So your first guests such as baron. Davis was not someone you would expect. How how did that? To happen. Well, what I wanted to do to the point of what am I after mystic about what I want to do through this podcast is to show people the leaders that are all around us because we do get so focused on fame and controversy and people with big titles and positions. When there are leaders all around us all the time and the truth is there are leaders problem. Solvers people who are changing the order of things for the better in every walk of life baron. Davis has happens to be an incredible leader in problem-solver most people who know him know him from basketball, but these folks are all over and speaking of unexpected we're looking for a little bit of an unexpected answer where we ask some of our guests this question. What is no one talking about that we should be talking about? I think what no one is talking about. And so honestly, I've started talking about it that we should be talking about is the role and the power that each of us as citizens have we started with a question about democracy in this country. The citizen is sovereign. Not a president not a government on a congressman not a mayor the citizen is sovereign. And I think as citizens we have spent way too much time looking up to somebody else..

"The Bush institute believes that developing leaders that are committed to solving problems as critical, and so does our guest Carly Fiorina who has a long history of leadership in both the for profit and not for profit realms. And I think it's also important to point out that she is a fellow optimist Carly, thank you so much for joining us. Thank you so much for having me, we're also joined by the Bush institute's expert on all things leadership policy and so much more executive director, Holly cues Mitch great to be here. So Carly you lived in Africa in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine as your father took a sabbatical at the university of Ghana and acros to teach the New Guinean constitution to law students. Can you tell us about that time, and how it shaped your perception of democracy and has that perception changed through your lifetime? Well such a great question to start with. So the thing that I remember I I was a teenage girl fourteen fifteen and we landed at the airport in a cry. To a totally different world. We were the only white people, obviously. However, I remember sitting in this wonderful brave new world to me where everything was different and exotic and strange, and yet everyone was so welcoming, and so warm and once a week, my father would invite some of his law students to our home, and we would sit around the table, my father, my mother, myself, my sister, and brother and all these law students, and I would watch them talk about their new constitution. And they were these law students were so passionate about what they were doing what they were building. This was a country that had just overthrown a dictator. This was their first real experience with democracy. And so it was a palpably emotional and uplifting experience. That's what I remember. About it. I didn't spend all that much time thinking about our own democracy until I got much older. I just you know, we're a democracy. It was like the air we breathe through the water. We swam it. If we were fishes unlike something brand new for these Ghanaian laws dunes. So I didn't really think about Ariza until much later. But there are features of ours. That are quite unique in quite powerful. The fact that we're a Republic, actually, not a democracy. The fact that so much of our constitution is focused on preventing the concentration of power. The fact that in our country, we believe local problem solving is better problem-solving. The fact that individuals have in Illinois, -able writes that don't come from government. These are things that are unique about our Democratic Republic. So Carly you just mentioned that what you when you lived in Africa. You you are often one of the only white people in the room. You've also often been the only female in the room. What's your advice to people?.

Because the next ad was a stroke of genius where it was featuring a lot of women in professional settings a lot of young women as well in school, right? And saying look at that face and all this, and I thought Carly Fiorina did a great job. It wasn't panic. It wasn't hand-wringing. It's not saying, can you believe how bad Donald Trump is? It was about empowerment. But what it's used for his fuel. It's like see how he abusive toward women and going after their looks and all of that stuff. Yeah. You know it. That's why I'm like, okay.
