A Look at the Suspects in the Christa Helm Murder

"Let's look at the suspects for the police. Sandy Smith, Chris agent, and the person whose house she was murdered in front of. Definitely in the Hollywood party scene, potentially had mob ties and definitely was a shady character. The next suspects a guy named Rudy mosel. A drug dealer who was roommates with Blair aronson, the keyboardist who worked on Christa's disco album. And so I was to say that crystal was storing large amounts of Coke from azela and during that time she stole some drugs from him and he found out and got a bit violent toward her. Another crazy thing Rudy sprag that he was the one who committed the murder. Now we all know that there are false confessions that happen. They happen pretty regularly in murder cases, but this is one that I would take a little seriously. He wasn't looked at deeply at the time of Christ as murder, but when the case was opened back up in the mid 2000s, cold cased investigators found that Rudy had been dead for years so there's nothing they could do with that. I think he's the general favorite of whoever killed Chris to helm. But with investigators unable to interview him, there was no direct evidence linking him to the death. So the case is still unsolved to this day. What I would do is I'd like to know what sandy Smith saw. And why did he lie to the police? What's also interesting about this case is investigative found tapes among her possessions and audio recordings of her sexual encounters. I love to hear those tapes. Another fascinating possible suspect is Tony sirico. Pauly walnuts himself. The roommate Stephanie said that he showed up at their apartment right after the party to check on Chris as well fair, but that ended up not happening. And what ended up happening was he went to their apartment to steal fur coats and personal items of Kristin's. So Stephanie have always believed that it was Tony who initially stole Christa's tape recordings from her room after the murder. Why he did that? I don't know.

"Investigators had very little to go on at the scene, but they matched the keys to the car and the apartment that you shared with Stephanie. Stephanie Warsaw. When police went to the apartment step, they told him that a roommate Krista had the car last night. And this is where the story gets even weirder. Kristen's roommate Stephanie told investigators that sandy Smith was Chris's agent and was a mutual friend of both, and she said that Chris had called Sammy from the party earlier that he didn't try to get him to join the party. When asked about that night sandy Smith told investigators that she was sound asleep and never heard a thing. I mean, he was a he claimed that he had no idea that Chris had been stepping a mere feet Amir several feet from his house. That's weird to me. But according to witnesses, that statement is false because there were other people coming and going from sandy's house all evening and the person who found Chris body was on his way to sandy south. So that's the line. That's a first line. Why was sandy trying to hide this from the police? We don't know. In the recording from recessions at the disco studio, working on our album. Investigators found that they were littered with personal drama and tension. On those on those audios. Apparently your backup singer patty Collins was having a secret relationship with Krista, but Christa denied being a lesbian and that upset Collins, when they heard the recordings investigators went on the hunt for patty Collins, but she was never found. To this day, we don't know where she went. We don't want she left. Another weird thing. Christa was said to have been carrying a handbag that contained a diary. But again, like I said, the purse, the diary, never been accounted for. So after a few months, this case went cold. The police had too many leads, too many loose ends, too much on their hands. They passed things off and moved on to the next until there was nothing left to do.

How Christa Helm Got Started in Hollywood

"Foray into the entertainment industry goes back to 1974 about 7 years after her daughter's born, she appears in a low budget horror film called legacy of Satan, then she lands the leading role in let's go for broke. Another forgettable low budget movie described by people as a James Bond spoof. The producers Stewart Duncan put it that way. Apart from singing the movie's theme song, Christa helm portrayed Jackie broke, a TV reporter that gets herself kidnapped to save other brainwashed women working at a pleasure palace. Doesn't sound like this will get over 10% on Rotten Tomatoes, does it? Obviously the film was not successful, but Christa helm gave her best. And when you're young and in the business, you just happy to get the role. You can't believe you're on a set in someone says action. You can't believe you see yourself on screen, even if the movie's shit still gives you a jolt of excitement.

"There was a thing back then, make yourself relevant, go to the right parties, you'll make it. And when she went to these parties, she made people like Warren Beatty. She met Mick Jagger. She met the Shah of Iran. And she made a man named Bernie cornfield. His name you'd never think stands out within Jagger Beatty and the Shah. Iran, but Bernie kleinfeld had at a time in LA. Now Chris the helm slept but he was a guy who was in money to finance here. But Krista slept with some of the men and women she met along the way. Word like that gets around. Her sex life probably would have been irrelevant except for the fact that she kept a not so secret love diary filled with the names of people she screwed, even a rating system. This is never a good idea. Writing shit down on paper may make the wrong guy nervous. So instead of keeping that information private, she would talk about her diary and the secret tape recording she made with many of her friends. And some of her friends warned her, you got to be careful. You know, people don't want to be in these recordings. They don't want to know about this, man. This is very dangerous. One of her friends was really adamant about it and she knew it was dangerous and she thought Christa was playing with fire, especially because people believed the famed seeking actress was getting ready to blackmail some of her lovers. That's desperation. At some point, Christie tells her friend that she'd gotten into something deep and she needed to stay off the radar for a while. This is February 12th, 1977, 5 days before she was killed before her dead body is found outside of her agent's home in West Hollywood. And given the fact that she had multiple stab wounds, authorities believed it was a crime of passion. That the murderer probably knew helm. Didn't make the case any easier though, as several people might have wanted to kill a due to her complicated life.

Who Would Kill Wanna Be Starlet Christa Helm?

"Today's show is gonna be about one of those women, an actress named Christa helm. Who never made it. Thought she would was absolutely positive. She was destined for stardom, but again, like so many people wasn't in the cards. But murder was. Christa helm was killed in February of 1977. Her murder still remains a mystery. And after she died, the love diary and the tapes she was warned not to make and definitely not to keep disappearing. So she was at 1.8 27 year old mother of a little daughter and aspiring actress who, like I said, would do anything or anyone for fame. But she came to an untimely demise when she was brutally stabbed between 20 and 30 times. On February 12th, 1977, in the street in West Hollywood, not too far from where the famous actors Sal minia was stabbed. In the street in an alleyway, and died. What would make someone commit such a senseless act of violence toward a seemingly innocent wannabe starlet.

Trouble in the Writers' Room at 'Rescue 911'

"There's trouble on the set of rescue 9-1-1 and it's such a bullshit situation, but this is the state of Hollywood now. Who the hell wants to be in Hollywood with all this shit? So last April, station 19 8 O episode that was hailed as one of the most powerful reflections of George Floyd's murder on television. It was written by an executive producer showrunner named Christa vernoff and some other people on the show's writing stuff contributed as well. More than a year later, an incident involving the depiction of racism on the page has left the writing team of the show reeling. It's got nothing to do with the writers recent draft of an outline. It has to do with what they hand it in. On the upcoming season 6 episode that included numerous uses of a racial slur by a racist character right away the N word pops up, right? So I'm hearing the script was assigned to a white writer who can white people write what bothers blacks or Hispanics, I don't know, the word in question this white writer used was beaner. It's a word that they won't even write in articles and newspapers around they won't even write the R took me a while to figure out what the fuck they were talking about. Beaner. You know, Mexicans pick beans. Okay. Derogatory, I get it. If you're a Latino descent, meanwhile, it's a term that the comedian Carlos mencia who was half Mexican would use all the time in his act and on his Comedy Central show. Beaner. I'm not even worried saying that word. I can't stand saying the N word. I've used that word to make a point. I've used it if I'm talking about music that contains the word or a discussion that contains the word. There's no reason to say it now, so I won't. But if someone brings it up and a discussion, they're talking about it, then I'll talk about it this controversy. But Peter, it means nothing to me. Nothing. So the guy ends in the outline and it's met with shock. It's not with disbelief. When he shares it with the writers room,

From wonder media network, I'm Miranda pearman mayday, host of the things we carry, and this is one man. I'm so excited to be one of your guest hosts for the final week of this Pride Month. This month will manica is highlighting queer stars of the stage and screen. Today's queer star is truly a force to be reckoned with. Not only did she write groundbreaking, commercially successful scripts depicting love between women, but she put her life on the line to harbor refugees during Europe's darkest days. Let's talk about the incredible Krista Winslow. Krista Winslow was born December 23rd, 1888 in darmstadt, Germany. After Christa's mother died unexpectedly in 1900, her father sent her to a particularly strict disciplinarian boarding school in Potsdam. Her experience attending the repressive institution greatly influenced her later work. In 1909, Krista started studying sculpture at the Munich arts and craft school. Despite the fact, this craft was considered unfeminine and despite her family's protests. Christopher particularly enjoys sculpting animals. Kristin married the successful writer baron Ludwig hatvany in 1913. During this time, she wrote her first works, including an unpublished story called the black sheep, about a girl who feels like a social outsider. Then, Christa wrote the novel men return home, in which the female protagonist decides to dress as a man after being assaulted. The marriage with Ludwig didn't last. After she and her husband split, Kristen moved to Munich, where she continued her sculpting and writing career, including her first plays. Though her plays didn't hit the stage just yet, her other work was published in various newspapers or magazines. Then, in 1930, Christa's play night narrow Stan, also known as yesterday and today was released. The play which featured only women performers told the story of a forbidden romance between a teacher and a student and a strict Prussian boarding school. It was partially inspired by Christa's experience at her own boarding school. The story has a tragic ending with a student committing suicide after ultimately being rejected by her teacher. Though the content of the play was rather dark, Christa still broke new ground writing a piece that sympathetically depicted lesbian romance. The play was a success and prompted mad Chen in uniform, or girls in uniform. Though Christo was one of the screenwriters on the film, the lesbian romance was significantly toned down, and the ending was changed so the protagonist is rescued at the last second before her suicide. Girls in uniform was shown worldwide to critical success. Christa continued to write about women's roles in society or gender relations. Many of her protagonists cross dress fall in love with other women or struggle to fit into typical expectations. In 1933, crisp even published a novelized version of girls in uniform called the child manuela, which had a bolder approach to the lesbian relationship. As Hitler took power in Germany, Christa began helping at risk refugees escape the country. Her partner at the time, the American journalist, Dorothy Thompson, had been expelled from Germany for speaking out against the Third Reich. The couple split their time between Italy and the United States. However, Christa found herself struggling to keep her career afloat. Writing in English was challenging in Hollywood wasn't interested in her movie scripts. In 1935, christer returned to Europe and spent the next few years in Italy, Hungary, Austria, and Germany. As Hitler's reign continued, it wasn't long before Christ's work was considered undesired literature, thanks to its queer themes. Krista was deemed a political threat and her options for publishing a work in German started to decline. In 1935, she published life begins a book about a young woman sculptor deciding to live openly with her lover, another woman. In 1939, she wrote the film girls in distress about a child experiencing her parents divorce. The film didn't Garner the same success as her earlier work, and shortly after its release, World War II broke out. Krista moved to France and met new partner named Simone gente. They would stick together throughout the war. Christa remained committed to writing, but it was more difficult than ever to publish work in France. Especially after the German occupation started. Nonetheless, she kept trying to create art. Christer wrote to a friend in 1944. Of course you think of yourself as ridiculous to hide your head in the sand of your imagination. But after the war, there also must be books and plays. However, Christa was hardly hiding her head in the sand. Even though food and money were scarce, Krista and her partner Simone tried to shelter refugees whenever they could. Krista even wrote to her ex partner Dorothy to ask for financial assistance. In 1944, after receiving an evacuation order, Krista and Simone left their home to travel toward the town of cluny. The couple decided to make their way to Hungary to meet with Chris's sister in law, but they never left France. On June 10th, 1944, Christa and Simone were mistaken for Nazi spies and killed by four French soldiers in a forest near Clooney. Christo was 55 years old. Though Christo was found not to be a spy, the four soldiers were acquitted due to lack of evidence four years later..

So we talk a lot about eczema, which we, you know, talking with histamine tolerant patients get a lot of questions on eczema so we wanted to bring on Chris to talk about that. So she goes into what eczema is. The different types of eczema because there are different types. The conventional treatment versus the treatment that we do with functional medicine, you know, the foods that affect eczema and a lot of really great information. So we're really excited for you to listen to this episode. All right, everybody. Chris is here and she is going to talk all about eczema for us. So let's get started, you know, a lot of people don't even know what eczema is. So can you just explain what eczema is and how it's traditionally treated? So there's actually many types of eczema and we could talk about it from a conventional standpoint in a stampede. And we hear the difference, which is good, because there is a difference for sure. Well, the reason, so eczema is essentially inflammatory skin condition, right? It's used interchangeably with atopic dermatitis. Dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, I said atopic dermatitis. So any type of skin inflammation that looks red, rashy, it can look darker, it can look dry and scaly. Technically, a dermatologist will diagnose it appropriately because it does vary from other common skin conditions, namely psoriasis, keratosis pilaris. There are some other varieties that there are many varieties of eczema or atopic dermatitis..

I'm gonna give them another big brook Lopez. We'll see if he gets back. Hopefully baby brook Lopez is that other big. But I'm gonna give him one more big so they can get by make another deep playoff run. All right, I think that would be a good one. For them, the rockets. The Houston Rockets, they are getting a bag of pinball balls because that's what they are playing for right now. It's ping Pong balls. They're looking to increase those lottery od so that's what the rockets are getting. All right, Dan, I'm going to go here. My adopted hometown Orlando. I'm going to give them they're going to get the ping Pong balls. Those are common. We know that. But I'm going to give them actual lottery luck. This team, they hit the jackpot two years in a row with Shaquille O'Neal and Chris Weber, which then, whatever was traded for penny Hardaway, that team ended up making a finals run at one point. And then they did get Dwight Howard number one overall later. But they have had some pretty rotten lottery luck. It feels like every year, they end up dropping a few spots in the lottery. So I'm gonna give them a little bit of lottery lock so that they can pair those guys with that young core that they're building. And I said this the other day on Twitter, we might get a little racy here on the NBA front office show because if Franz Wagner keeps playing the way he is. This is going to become only Franz account. I saw that. I like that one. That was certainly a good one. But yes, he's been very good, and I think that's a good pick for that. Getting a little bit of lottery luck that would go a long way, towards building the next version of the Orlando Magic. The Golden State Warriors are getting the gift of clay. Clay Thompson is the gift for the Golden State Warriors. This team is already absolutely tremendous and clay coming back is probably going to make them that much better. So and they're getting it sounds like they are actually getting this gift not too far off here, but Klay Thompson for the Golden State Warriors. We're delivering a real one there. That's right. The Miami Heat, I'm gonna stick right here in Florida. I'm just gonna give them a little bit more depth..

This was probably the easiest gift anybody could give because this is a gift for the 76ers for whatever team gets Ben Simmons. Four Ben Simmons, and for all of us, because then this trade happens and we don't have to talk about it anymore. I was going to say that's a gift for us to bed Simmons trade that finally goes down. So, yes, I agree with that one. I'm gonna go to the San Antonio spurs. San Antonio spurs get something that they haven't had before. Or at least that they rarely have had. It's a mid season trade and I'm talking about that young. That young is going to be on the move for the San Antonio spurs, and they're going to get, I don't know what, just yet, but something of value in return for that young and that young himself is going to get sent to a team where he can be on a contender. Like he's wanted. I love it, that is great. All right, the Detroit Pistons. We're gonna give you more losses. You're trying to pile them up. You're trying to get down in there to get that number one pick and deliver you that once in a generation big man. There's a couple one of those there to pair with cage Cunningham.

He's really starting to figure things out now. So to more losses, more pushing into that top four for sure in the lottery. Oh, I like that one. I like that one. It sounds weird at first. We're giving you more losses, but that is what you want. What they need. It's what they want. The Memphis Grizzlies. Let's jump over to that. The Memphis Grizzlies, we are going to give you a true appreciation for John Moran because I think this is important for their franchise. You can't be upset that he came back. You can't be telling him to go back to the bench. That's going to drive him away. So Memphis Grizzlies, you are getting an appreciation for your superstar because that's what jaw is. John morant. Absolutely. The Indiana Pacers, we're going to give you those trades that you so sorely need. We're going to break this up. We're going to pull that expired chunky lemon milk down the drain, send it out, get rid of it. We're going to start over. And we're going to keep a couple of these guys around. Malcolm Brogdon, one of sabonis and Turner, rebuild around those two and see where we're headed moving forward. I like it. I like it.

She wait she can hold it for like ours and then she wants to go outside and then other days you know what i think. I'm going to in this crate. It's been thirty minutes this spills right so i'm about to bring in a dog whisperer to help me get it together and help get it together so that i don't lose my mind and i have fallen apart when it comes to my invisible line.

I only give you that. Update because episode one. We went into the whole brace gate saga so i felt like you deserve to know that that is the mess of my life right now. Quite literally puppy mess and also. My teeth aren't shifting. Because i keep losing my trays. Alright in today's episode. We aren't talking about one of my newer obsessions. Something i'm really into. I love personality tests. I love learning about personality types. I love the context gives into myself into the people that i love and care about sometimes. Enter the people that i don't like to be quite frank any grams. The graham is something that i if that's the way it is at the instagram. Sorry guys any grams or something. That i discovered i would say probably three years ago now and is this a really fascinating personality test that i took and it felt very spot on and because of that i've used it to help me navigate relationships and friendships Since then and it has proven to be spot on. It's a nine cited figure that's used in a particular system of analysis to represent the spectrum of possible personality types. So when you look it up online kind of you know how someone might explain what. The purpose of the graham is Is it like i said. Is this idea that everyone belongs to one of nine major personality types and the purpose is not to put you into a box but to help you. Identify both the strengths and limitations of a preferred strategy. So you can get some guidance on how you can develop more capacity beyond it so it's really helps me. I think it will help us. So i'm going to share that today with you. We're diving into how urania gram tight. My influence your emotions. Your attitudes your behavior. What's your like at your best. Your quote unquote healthiest. And what you're like at your worst who you're most compatible with what to do with someone that you might not technically be the most compatible with. It's really fun. It's super fascinating and you're gonna love it so here. We go any grams all right. You guys get excited. When i tell you y'all know i love. I am absolutely if says. Once i discovered i just dove headfirst into all things any agree. I'm and i became a fan. Very quickly of today's guests podcast. Her name is christa harden. She's rooted in almost two decades of experience counseling and coaching couples. Using top marriage research and on top of expert marriage advice krista host the weekly ideogram marriage. Podcast which i love. And she has developed forty five any agreem- globe guides for each and every couple pairing. So whoever you're thinking about right now yes. There is appearing for the two of you. Christie uses the ideogram and other great marriage tools to add another layer of understanding antics deeper insight into how we connect with one another and to glow brightly together in the world. Krista hello how are you. I'm good how are you. I'm doing so well as as you just heard. I am a fan. I've been listening often onto your podcast for a while. now i i discovered the india. Graham probably a couple of years ago now maybe two three years ago and was absolutely fascinated by just house spot on how spot on it was and i particularly love you operating in the intersection of the graham and couples counseling and marriage and how that can work for us. So i'd love if we could just kick things off by you telling a little bit of your story. How did you discover the india graham. And why did you decide to integrate it into your counseling. Oh well that's a great question. What happened was i had loved. All like myers briggs. I know you love that too. And there's just so many fun personality tests out there. So i of course tried them all and worked in assessments and just done these huge batteries on people and it would take hours for us to come up with the same information that leader i found out i could get from this new test called the any graham and it took a friend who is a really deep therapist actually type for which we'll talk about a little bit in a minute. She said. give it another look. This goes so much deeper than you realize that. I so when she said that and i knew how she was such a quality therapist i did and i have not looked away since because what it did for. My marriage was amazing. It gave us permission to release stop. Judging each other which. I think you do in marriage after a while or getting out of my married long-term relationship and it's like it's so easy to be like. Oh my god. Why are you like then. Why don't you just do it this way. And i can't wait to talk about this. A little later in the combo but i have been able to extend so much more grace to my partner and vice versa when we realize they are who they are and this is what that means and this is how you work with it. So it's less about. Why are you like this and more like okay. You're like this and this is why.

I don't say that out. But i exactly have this ferry. You know a strong awareness and understanding of what else can go wrong. And so for me.

The Queer Community And Body Image

"You've been getting in touch about your own experiences with body image of the back of our episode where we discussed the question was does the quake community have a problem with body image. And i think this is what i love. This would meeting gang on the politics me. Keep it down to quota trying to quote one of the guardians. Top ten pocus twenty twenty one year. Things have come to light you see. What's great is we sort of do the discussion episodes and then people start writing with other new views. Things that came up one of our listeners wrote in talking about we didn't have enough. The queer female perspective will say we didn't cover enough of the trans perspective on the body image stuff which contains so many specifics. And then we've had two more messages about certain angles on it that we may have overlooked first discussion which is so great. So i got something from dan dear christa. I've been listening to her savings over the past six months or so and love it. It's a great thing to all these viewpoints from across the lgbtq plus spectrum and feel that connection especially while we're unable to make real life ones during lockdown. I must however take issue with the point raised in last week's podcast about body image. We do have a problem in the community of body image and the way in which we raise up. The stereotypical white system muscular young man as the pinnacle of desirability. Well they go. I sort of just fine and thing. But i have noticed a growing aggression from some progressives within the community towards guys who do enjoy presenting stereotypically. Masculine i understand. It's very important to make sure all body types and the ways in which people like to present are important and should be equally visible engaged media across the board. however. I didn't think it's helpful to attack. Those do enjoy stereotypical appearances of masculinity. I have a friend who is very popular and well known online and presents as old school masculine. I'm recently had a tirade of messages from someone. Berating him for toxic masculinity. The friend in question is a lovely individual actually identifies pan sexual loves guys who present as feminine and was hurt by this unwarranted attack based on his appearance. Say my point is that will vote is important that we push for more diversity in image and representation within the lgbtq plus community. It shouldn't be on the basis of attacking those who happen to enjoy presenting as masculine in a more traditional way. Keep up the good work done from london thanks. Dan much appreciated. And we haven't covered that angle. It's really interesting and it leads me to think of perhaps a even bigger question big truck driving post is that i suppose. The persecution queer people have ever received is about sitting outside of the norm and argument. Is it's all spectrum. Let us be who we are. That's gender sexuality gender identity everything and what you're talking about. Dan is that within spectrum masculinity and femininity should be able to be apportioned to everybody. I wonder if this is about that. If we're going to allow people who are expected to be masculine to be feminine and we want people to understand that will say need to make people who just masculine and that doesn't make you. Not queer is about opening up. Everyone can be anything they want. Is the kind of the end goal here and the persecution of each other is something we have to be mindful of an ice certainly. Do you know because that can be true. Attached to suffering at the hands of people who are hyper masculine who have pointed out your lack of masculinity i needed. I had that like people you know. When i was a kid chris menial such go and they were always kind of the masculine people doing that. So you can then sort of demonized as people but actually there are going to be people who all they feel. Comfortable in. Their skin is being masculine. And that's what they wanna do and that is as valid as anything else. It's important to remember that

And but this isn't new. This is what they had to do for mattis when trump non nominated him for secretary of defense but it seems that Many of the deaths have said they would never support a waiver because of the importance of having civilian leadership of the military so blumenthal opposed the waiver as well Slot consists he. We shouldn't be appointing anyone that requires a waiver Biden wrote a detailed defense though of his selection. Saying because austin works well under pressure. He's clearly qualified. But you know.

'Piecing things together': Christa Couture on how writing about loss helped her move forward

"KRISTA couture is a cree and Scandinavian musician broadcaster mother and now author. It's hard to grasp the breadth of loss that Krista has faced in her life and those losses feature prominently in her new memoir. It came up that I had lost a child. This was before I had lost a second and the eyes of the woman I was talking to lit up. I have a prints of skies. She said she had lost a boy her baby late in pregnancy it was a premature labor with complications. She described as a special and I was taken aback special had never occurred to me. We know something very few people know she said. It's true. I have been witnessed exceptional events. I never could have imagined the love I experienced when my first son was born how my heart grew, how a part of my being that I never knew had hid within me was illuminated. similarily, there was no way to predict the change his death in my arms would make the privilege of holding him through his beginning in this world to his end. The. Loss of two children has deepened. My compassion for others expanded understanding inspired a letting go of little things and defined what matters most Nothing could make my children's deaths seem worth it. But I can also feel gratitude for some of the changes. It's a duality that's hard to accept. I might argue that. Is Bliss and I would have been content to complain my days away on more trivial challenges. I didn't want this insight. But I can agree we are special few and sometimes the separateness I have felt from other parents is rooted calmly in this knowing. That's Christa a tour reading from her new memoir how to lose everything. Chris is my guest on the show today. Thanks so much for being here Christa. Thank you. So. Your book is called how to lose everything and it talks about a range of losses you've dealt with in your life what made you want to write this book now Well, I couldn't have written it any sooner. That's for sure. I needed enough time to pass I needed all of these events to be in the past You know grief is such a falling into pieces and writing a book, a literal piecing things together So I kind of had to have it all in front of me so that I could figure out how I wanted to do that, and I mean these stories I've been telling through music for years the stories that are in the book. But I think there was something that I was searching for that whole time like in expressing myself in wanting to be seen and heard and put these out there for people. That was very satisfying through music but I felt like when I settled on writing the book, I got to go in depth in a way that I had been looking for the whole time and it felt like I finally told the stories in a way that I can now probably stop stop telling him I mean. Now the book is out in that story will be told every time someone reads it but as far as an artist and creating from these experiences, I think the book finally became the most. Fulsome method for me to do that, you've described your your point form grief Bio as cancer, death, death, divorce more cancer, and I think that this nist of that description kind of gives me pause bit it's a lot. It's a lot to unpack but it almost feels intentional away of to sort of putting everything out there on the table for you. Yes, just little catchy grief bio. You know it's chilly in bullet form. It's a staggering I think even for myself in in thinking about this book and what I wanted to write in sort of being like well, there was this and this I was like, wow, that is that's a lot. It's a lot. Each one of those is a lot. and so I distill it down to that to Kinda give people a sense of what everything is to me in this book And of course, the death death that's the deaths of two of my children. That's the biggest part of everything and then there's all those other losses around it but the grief just kind of became an easy way to try and explain it to people. And I think people like sometimes no one or two of those things about like at a glance they're like, oh, the person with one leg or maybe they've heard some other interviews like, oh, the person who lost two children are the cancer survivor like there's kind of these different parts that people know in my my little grief bio is my way of saying, oh no, it's it's all one person.

Keep Selling in the Midst of COVID19

"The years, the accelerate your business growth podcast has gained recognition as a great resource for small business owners, sales, professionals, entrepreneurs. Business leaders of all kinds, and that is because of the gas. These are folks who have expertise in particular areas of business and they join me for a conversation where they share that expertise with all of you. Today is no different. My guest today is Chris O.. Rien. Iger Chris Started Small Business Silver lining with a mission to help small businesses become more profitable and sustainable. She created the slap methodology, the silver lining action plan a thirteen month growth program, which is technology enabled data driven and based in behavior change science. Helping Small Business Owners developed the right habits and take the right actions to grow their business. Just regularly writes speaks and advises on small businesses. Thanks so much for joining me today. Christa. Thank you so much for having me. I'm so glad to be here. I am thrilled to have you here and we're going to be talking about. Selling through this whole Cova pandemic fan. which I think is something. So many small business owners are struggling with or have been struggling with of the past couple of months. And my first question for you is, would you talk some about? selling in a recession. People I think are afraid to sell Wen bad times but but I mean I think you believe it's possible. I. Believe it's possible. But what does that? What do you think? What does that? What like? Yeah listen I think. So, a couple of things number one is. It can't be sort of overstated how significant the disruption has been in twenty twenty for small business owners. I. Mean You if you're a small business owner listening and you feel tired and exhausted and worried. You know you're. Not Alone and this has been a really hard year. So you know I just you know I always wanted knowledge sort of the emotional reality of this moment because for many people are self included, right? You see your revenue go down a significant amount literally overnight no doing of your own and it's ridiculously stressful and so that is that is very real and we see that in. Almost all of our customers now with also true the silver lining. No Pun intended. Is that you know yes, we've watched all of our small businesses, their revenue go down things have gotten hard. It's also true that not one of our small businesses has out of business and the reason I think that's true. I is three things and this this goes to answer your question Diane the first. Is having a resilient mindset and we can talk about this more. But I in before Cova I talked a lot about mindset and how I thought the trick to sales and the trick to revenue really started with mindset. And I see that you know a million times more today than I. Did you know six months ago and so strong mindset staying positive? Not becoming a victim to the moment. But you know staying in control seeing all of this crisis as both risk and opportunity, and just choosing to believe that we will be okay you know and again there's a million things we could say about that. But that's number one and number two is getting really creative and adaptable. Now creative and adaptable does not mean that we start you know running around like chickens with their heads cut off. And getting really unfocused and getting you know really chaotic and throwing out what we originally did and try to start something brand new. But it means that there is always a new way to do what we do. There is always a new way to innovate. Even in my business journey, we used to be sort of consulting and training business and we've completely innovated how we do what we do, and now you know were software as a service company. But what we do have ultimately stayed the same and who serve stayed the same. But how we do it has innovated entirely, and so this is a moment where. Business, owners have an opportunity not to throw out what they do and not to throat who they do it for, but to actually get creative into innovate how they do what they do and the business owners that is seized sort of succeeding the most haven't been resistant to that adjustment but have releasing this as a moment to innovate to change and to ask the right questions of innovation, right not innovate. For. The sake of throwing everything they've built a way but innovate so that they can do what they do better in a way that really meets the times and then the third thing and it goes of counter to what our knee reaction is. Right when when we feel an element of scarcity or when we feel an elementary anxiety tend to think that the way we're gonNA generate more revenue is to. Sort of do anything to anyone rights, I will sell anything to anyone who will buy for me. You know anything's possible and we have tons of data and tons of proof. That's not true that in fact, the people who stay focused stay niche at but go really deep instead of really wide, those ones actually sell the most. So that's a long way to answer the question, but the quick answer is. I think there's a ton of opportunity right now I think business owners can make it through this right now but I think we need to be really intentional about being keeping our mindset strong. Being incredibly creative, adoptive, and sort of innovative around how we do what we do and staying focused and going deep, not wide and how we serve our customers. But at when we do those things for sure I, do believe we can get through this.
