"Even some cancers osteoarthritis and a clear link to mental conditions source as depression so as the number of obese individuals grew so did the number of people suffering from these diseases today more than fifty percent of the us. Adult population are living with obesity or overweight from a health perspective. That is devastating. But it's not only a us problem duplicity. Search has made obesity at local health problem. Many inside and outside the mill community believe obesity is not a disease they believe that obese this condition a condition brought about by too much eating and too little exercise as a matter of fact a lot of people living with obesity.

But where is the scientific proof. That obesity is a disease. Well medically speaking. There's many ways to define disease but let me give you just three examples as a process that impairs your functionality and reduce life expectancy obesity check. You can define disease as a process that gives you more susceptible to other diseases or causes disease. Obesity check or you can define disease as genetic impairment that leads to functional impairment like for instance at duplication of genes on chromosomes. There are clear evidence that a single gene mutation can lead to obesity such for instance leptin deficiency and pump c deficiency. We also have two three teams leading to obesity. And it's my prediction that we by the year twenty thirty. We'll be able to explain most obesity by the genetic makeup of the individual so obesity deceased by this measure check. Let me be clear. We humans have had the same genes for decades and just recently. Obesity has become a bigger problem. How do we then explain that. One obvious thing is actually food especially carry rich food which is much more readily available. It's relatively easy and also relatively cheap to eat your entire daily need of carries by.

"A in it in a way that many people never think about before. And that is He's going to measure my life by the people who i could help become better people and he. He's given me an opportunity to do that. And i believe that everybody has been given an opportunity by god to help each other and I just tried to think about how god thinks and how he made us better every day. And every once in a while i come upon somebody like fossa god is able to post to form in a way that that is a two way street because everything i've learned he learns and It's a wonderful experience. So all i can say is i. I'm grateful to god for rigidity professor clay. i think you so much for impacting my life. A boy from oklahoma Never met in person. I didn't really know harvard business. School even existed. Frankly until somebody recommended it to me. And i just i cannot tell you that the impact you've made on so many people just like me small business owners all over the world and the fact that you guys would take time out of your schedule to be here with us if oh so you guys have so much going on. I encourage every listener out there. If you're listening today pick up a copy of the prosperity paradox today by a cop it by one more copy for someone you care about. This book is a game changer. Think you so much for being on today show. Here's you're welcome. Thanks for the opportunity. There's just something about clay christianson that blows my mind. I mean this is a guy who is the most iconic most well known the most respected professor at the world's number one business school and yet he just thanked me. He just thanked us for the opportunity. That is the kind of person that i would love to become. Someday he is truly a business hero for me. And i don't want to take any of the thunder away or the focus away from his newest book. The prosperity paradox. But i do wanna share a notable quotable from one of his previous books called. How will you measure your life. How will you measure your life. And in that book he writes in your life. There are going to be constant demands for your time and attention. How are you going to decide which of those demands gets resources aka time. The trap many people fall into is to allocate their time to whoever screams the loudest and their talent to whatever offers dim the fastest reward. That's a dangerous way to build a strategy. So thrive nation is an action item. Today i would ask you. I would ask you to do two action items for me to take action steps for me today. One by a copy of the prosperity paradox by clayton christianson. This guy is one hundred percent sold out to helping people all over the world. His book is powerful. And i promise you that you are going to have countless knowledge bombs and epiphanies as you turn the pages of that book also. I would encourage you to ask yourself today. How are you allocating your time. How are you utilizing your time. If time is truly our most important resource i mean. We can always make more money but we can't make more time so if time is truly our most precious in finite resource. I think the most profound question we all ask ourselves. Today's how are we spending our our time. And just because somebody since you a facebook message or sensual linked in invite or youtube paying of some kind or a tweet doesn't mean you have to spend your day responding to those things. Listen this digital age. It's very easy to get our per parodies. All all turned around and misaligned. It's easy to focus on the most important thing last and then spinner day focused on the least important things because we're getting them urgently. We're getting updates push to our phone and maybe we need to turn those push notifications off. Maybe we need to focus on things that matter. Maybe you should turn off those push notifications and to schedule some time to sit down and to read a book a book that will impart wisdom into your life and to help. You become a proactive person. Maybe you need to turn off the push notifications and to invest time into building. That business. you've been talking about. Maybe this is your season to write that book. You've been dreaming about. Maybe it's your time. Maybe maybe this is your year to be the family man. You've always wanted to be the family woman. You've always wanted to be put. Don't drift because by default.

Low temperatures are good for building but visitors dislike extreme cold so the company's sites in utah. Colorado new hampshire and wisconsin are in areas that often hover near thirty two degrees some years. It's really cold some years. It's not and we just gotta hold our breath and work with what we have last year. The wisconsin locations opening was delayed because the ice was melting and climate.

New York's Broadway costume designers lament about being left out of coronavirus aid

"Shut down in March, actors and stagehands weren't the only ones affected. The Save Our Stages Act just passed as part of the Cove in relief bill and will help theaters and cultural institutions tread water until the pandemic is over. But as W one way sees Jennifer of Anasco reports some businesses that support the arts industry say they've been for gotten John Christians in New York Inc has built costumes for a lot of the big shows Cat's frozen and the new musical six, which was supposed to open on March. 12 the day that all of Broadway shutdown So we're getting ready for opening night That night, Every machine was filled. Every table was filled. People were doubled up. People were coming and going, and then Just like that they were closed. The leadoff all 52 of their employees. Like everyone they thought maybe let me for a few weeks, But in June, they were told No theater won't reopen in 2020, and for us, Everything stopped, like all of our orders just completely stopped. That's Brian Blight, Christensen's life partner and the business manager of John Christians in New York. And it was really a moment of what are we going to do? Are we gonna close? We put everything in storage, Do we? Walk away. They didn't Instead, Blake realized they weren't alone all through the city, small businesses that depend on Broadway and the theater industry. We're figuring out if they could survive the pandemic to And the shops are very specialized. A costumes aren't closed. You can't buy them off the wreck. They're made to measure for specific actors and designed for performers to dance and sweat in them eight times a week. Here's Christenson. But we do is cut your it should be the finest quality. It's the best interiors the best flat linings that we confined to make the product that will last a long time. And be beautiful and worth that ticket price, Christiansen and Blight realized they were part of an entire custom ecosystem. It includes specialty dry cleaners who care for $10,000 dresses made of fragile fabrics, study with sequence or flowers and people who know how to make those flowers and people who put the pleats in the fabric. And makers of tap shoes and toe shoes and beat artists and fabric painters. There are people who make specialty undergarments and hats and armor. The list goes on. So the two men joined with 54 other small businesses to found the costume industry coalition. They're clear about what they need money. Life once a kind of bailout from the government. $3 million to erase the debt of these small businesses for 2020 we have to, I think in this country I'm talking about the arts and culture as something that is a warm, fuzzy and wonderful the for the human soul and start talking about it as the economic driver that it actually is, because the economic between Arkin cultures huge, the U. S. Bureau of Economic Analysis says in 2017. The latest figures they have available. The arts and culture sector was contributing about $877 billion to the GDP. That's 4.5%. It employs over five million arts workers nationwide. In New York state. The sector contributes over 7% of the GDP. That's bigger than finance. It's bigger than construction. Hi, I'm Kevin McCollum. I'm a producer of Broadway shows, including the musical six. The one that was supposed to open the day Broadway closed. Save Our Stages is so important. Unfortunately, the shops are somewhat not involved in that. The venues will get grants, but the shops that support them. They need to wait until the orders come in. They say That's why the government should also give money to the costume industry. And to those who build sets and props. Because this is about more than the question of whether theater will survive. It will Well, the artists who make it the artisans who make it still be able to call themselves New Yorkers. Sure, I guess you could say Let's move everyone out of the city. And if that's the kind of city New York wants to be, I don't think that's the case. I think we want the artist to be able to afford and work and live in New York City. A few avenues over

Alejandro Martinez reports on prides career Charley Pride made his mark as the first black country music star to hit it, big music critic Thor Christensen says. When Pride's career took off in the late 19 sixties, he moved to Dallas. He told me I grew up in a segregated society, and he didn't want to subject his his three kids to that. And when he thought about where you could travel around the world and not be subjected to such racism, he said. You couldn't find a better place than Dallas. Pride was also part owner of the Texas Rangers baseball team. I was a regular at home

I want to focus on these three things cuz I think if we could just give like suck. Simple advice this might help some people out. Okay. So let's start with the right goal. Okay. So for me, I'm trying to figure out if you're helping a customer. You're hoping someone that comes to you. They're like, I don't know if I should be you know drunk people to my thing directly to sales my ad just about like I'm selling this thing. Here's the price or do I give someone a freebie to get them on an email list. Do I like how do you help me? Figure out the right goal? Cuz there's a lot of goals in Facebook. Yeah. That's it. That's a tough question to answer it comes back to where are they at? Currently? They can't all be softballs. They cannot be softballs. Yeah. It's one of those. It depends answers because yeah, it really depends on how many people do you have right now there that are engaging with you that are going to your website. What are your business office is your product selling already most people I work with they're already selling their products if they're not I typically just say you need to really work on your messaging and figuring out that in your brain dead. Be in there are people that can probably help them out even better than I can so I would say really yeah get clear on where you're at in your business. Right? Are you are you selling anything currently? If not down the steps you taking that you're taking to get there. So are you know having built your kind of your brand identity yet? Have you figured out your your voice online? Have you figured out who you're trying to serve and what you're offering them what they're paying points are so really get clear on that part of your business when it comes to kind of the next part. So I don't typically work with those type of people. Sorry, if if you're listening your great people. It's just there's better people that can help you with. I like to work with those people that already have some sales coming in. They've already figured out there messaging. So if you haven't done that just really work on getting clear on your messaging and I like to work with people with their ads to on this and I would say, you know, you should really have a voice and it should be not everyone necessarily should love it, which is weird to say, you know, you hear so many people like I want to sell it everybody and it's like well, you're not going to sell to anybody then really dead. Oh, you really want to get clear on who you're actually serving, you know, listen to my Kim chat that you had with him on your podcast his like who do you want to meet out of my friends? Right? You want to meet my ID. You want to meet my mom my sister? Whoever might be referencing all your podcasts now consistent grade, right? So Provo, I love it.

Appreciate it. No, it's my pleasure. So I've been following your work on Instagram for a couple of years and and kept my eye out when when you first had a collaboration with her and and then also with Alliance but recently frequent contributor to our Thursday night show Thursday night. Ryan spirited blades had just took a misfit from you and man it knocked my socks off and everyone else tell me how you got into Custom Knife making and apparently it started with pimping. Yeah. I mean it all starts from when you're a kid, you know, I would say probably twelve thirteen, you know, I've always my dad was in the military and yep. He always had out the front, you know stilettos and stuff like that. You know, what I was running is room and play with them growing up. But yeah, just all start your Frome. I was younger and my dad bought me my first knife and carried it religiously for a couple of years. So I finally fell apart, you know, a lot of wood carving and whatnot. But it all it led to to what it is is my nice pimping knife modding. So I started collecting when I got a little older actually he passed away wage and I started collecting more. It was like a different hobby for me. I grew up racing motocross with him. Okay, so when he passed I didn't like Me and him were like always together. So it was something else to get me, you know my mind off of racing and you know doing that because me and him a brother were every weekend, right. So after he passed him didn't really want to ride anymore cuz you know just made me think of him. So, you know started other things. I mean did coincide. I don't know but sort of collecting and then I've seen videos on YouTube Jeff from tough knives soft thumbs. It's just started modifying nice and you know, I started getting to the you know higher end, you know, I would say, you know higher $100 knives that was hard for me, but when I first started and I just tried pimping and it just kind of left from there and you know, you start one thing you gotta start somewhere and then home Kind of leads to the other. You know, it's like everything you do you kind of want to go up the ladder and I would got really good at doing that. So starting off like talk to try to make my own, you know, get a couple of fixed blades nothing special but that was kind of, you know to the Wayside and you know, whatever was fun game ever. I did and started a YouTube channel doing the pimping and modding. It's not it's not available anymore, unfortunately, but What's a hacking accounts in email? So I had to delete the YouTube but I still have all the videos. It should pop them all up one day and start from there. But you know, I started getting pretty big in the customizing and pimping and you know and kind of went from there, you know, the customizing and pimping thing was really big for a while back and it seems to have seems to have waned quite a bit. I remember thinking like why would you get a why would you get a production knife and then have someone customize it now? I totally get it and I'll have scales made or something like that. But why do you think the the whole life modifying game kind of trailed off a little bit wouldn't say a trade-off if you really look there's a probably a lot more modifiers than you, you know, would expect maybe it's my interest that trailed off. Yeah, it can be. I mean, don't really dead. Up with it, but I know a lot of guys that are still doing it, you know on a daily basis even with all like my Kaiser's there's a couple of guys that bought Hummer of them just to modify them and sell them, you know, the the critical here cuz it's a you know, it's a knife. It's Titanium and has a lot of room for modifying and they would do flipper deletes and everything like that. So it's you know it off it's not as big as it used to be I guess but there are more people if that makes sense. Yeah, cuz there's a lot more I would say production stuff that is already Faith or you see is just a, you know, a blade color change or like a anodizing nothing like I was doing regrinds and full-frame lock to talk to, you know rely on their lock the frame lock conversions, you know, Emerson's, you know, doing that all the time. So, you know to me it made sense for instance Jeff tough thumbs. I've followed him and then sort of watched him go into knife-making and it seemed to make sense. You know, you're already changing handle. You're all you're all ready customizing and modifying knives. You're learning how they work from a very intimate perspective seems like the the jump to making knives is logical until you've ever found a blade and then you see like that is a whole other part of it, you know changing the handle and anodizing and all that's one thing but grinding a blade is a another. How did you make that jump off? Well, you would think it'd be like Simon like the same thing it is but isn't in.

The Air Force Struggles With Diversity. Can The Space Force Do Any Better?

"The newest branch of the military just promoted its first female three star general. The US Space Force also recently appointed the nation's first all women space operations team. Top space force leaders say gender and racial diversity is a core part of the mission. But his Colorado public Radio's Dan Boyce reports, some female veterans are skeptical. First Lieutenant Kelly McKay serves with the all female Space Operation Squadron stationed at Schriever Air Force Base near Colorado Springs, The squadron command's one of the country's GPS satellites. I obviously never gotten work on all female crew for these were women that I've I wanted to work with their close friends of mine and co workers. The work of the space force is almost entirely digital Space Force members operates satellites and other national space assets from computers down on Earth. Lieutenant McKay says an all female squadron makes a bold statement for the military's news branch. I'm hoping that women will see that they have more opportunities, and they might have realized growing up as long as they're actively seeking out the women to come there. They have a great opportunity to be the the service that leads the way Don Christensen is president of the nonprofit Protect Our Defenders. The group focuses on reducing discrimination in the military. The space force grew out of the Air Force last December, Christensen says It's continuing the airforce tradition of a better gender balance than the other branches. But he worries the space force could continue another worrisome course when it comes to racial disparity there force with worst in analyzing military data Person's sins team found black airman 70% more likely than their white peers to get court martialed or receive other punishments. The air Force is own data shows that trend getting worse in recent years. Nevertheless, in just the last few months a couple of milestones confirmation of the first Black Air Force Academy superintendent and then the first black Air Force chief of staff General Charles Q. Brown Jr. Here's Brown's own candid assessment of the challenges ahead. I can't fix centuries of racism in our country, nor can I fixed decades, discrimination may have impacted members of our Air force. How much to make of these nominations depends on who you talk to. While we're very proud of gentle brown. It's It's so even Pacheco is a recently retired air force commanding officer. Photo op Shea. We like, like people. We like minority. Yea, we promoted on so don't complain anymore, okay? And we're like, Okay, So what? We want to see his action. What policies? Are you going to drive? What changes? Are you going to drive? She argues the ways to report discrimination in the space force are all inherited from Thie Air Force. And if you don't restructuring I honestly I don't. I'm not sure that you'll be able to restructure. I don't know. I just think they might continue get away with it. Unfortunately. Pacheco says As discrimination charges work their way up the chain of command senior officers often suppress reports to avoid looking bad themselves. They're going to be shaped to encourage honest communication, the space force's chief diversity and inclusion. Officer Carrie Baker says They've already placed heavy emphasis on developing open minded leaders and pushing them to learn about unconscious biases, even to the point where one should be careless enough to Speaks to their leadership about concerns that they have without concern of retribution. Baker says. The space force has targeted outreach initiatives to recruit women and people of color. Keep your eye on us. We're going to make you proud Tanya would nightie professional. They're working for the department defense for about 20 years, Tanya would lives in San Antonio, Texas. For years, she worked as an Air Force intelligence analyst, a job similar to the desk bound rolls found in the space force today would who's Black says misogyny and racism were rampant? Not getting a fair seat at the table, having to prove myself constantly having to prove my technical ability Trying to prove how smart I am. If if you will constantly challenged by my male colleagues, she's pleased to hear about that new all female space force team. She's still not sure it's a sign of systemic change. She compares the all female crew to the Tuskegee Airman, Those heralded black fighter pilots from World War two. That was an experiment. But was it sustainable? You know, do we still have that level of diversity? Now? She wonders if the space force doesn't address fundamental challenges involving race and gender. Will those experiments ever lead to anything beyond history? Making headlines for NPR news? I'm Dan Boys in Colorado Springs.

Travel to Penang Malaysia

"Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about paying. I'd like to welcome the show ruth from Vancouver and that's not the one in Canada but the one in Washington and that's the state of Washington. DC. WHO's come to talk to us about Penang? Malaysia Ruth Welcome to the show. Thank you. Glad to be here and some of you met ruth. If you traveled a with me to Morocco ruth was one of the people on that trip and we're friends from long before that and you have spent the last. Three years up until the coronavirus down in southeast. Asia's that have I got. The timing writer was longer than Well, we had three years in Singapore. And then we were into our just pass our first year in Penang when the covert virus and I actually was here in the states and got stranded here as the movement control order went into effect inning and I wasn't able to get back into the country. So we're now home back in the state of Washington and Yeah. But Penang was our home for about a year. Will, and when we get to the point where we can, why should someone go to Penang? Penang is just a very interesting piece of as. You have three distinct people ethnicities who make up panning opening is one of the thirteen states of Malaysia. It's the second smallest. It's the only one that has a island plus mainland components, and the island is the part that we are familiar with. That's where we lived. We lived in Penang Island Penang. Island. Has Like I say three different distinct groups. There's the Chinese, which are about fifty percent, which is more than the most of Malaysia, your Chinese percentage, and then you have forty percent Malay- and about nine percent of the Indians who are mostly Tamil speakers so there from southern. Yup and then we have the expert groups and in particular, there's one large group of experts that now reside in Penang as a result of Malaysia's M. M.. Two H. Program, which is Malaysia my second home. So quite a few people have actually retired they've made it their permanent home. So it's a very eclectic group of different ethnicities and different cultures and they do not intermixed very much. So you really do have these distinct. And distinct foods and distinct ways of living and languages, and you can do it all in a very small space and people have been to Singapore Penang. It's about the third of the size of Singapore. And only has about fifteen percent of the population of Singapore's on the island about seven hundred thousand people that makes it much more spread out. You're not just in these big crowds of people and yet you're experiencing the same kind of cultural mixing and interaction that you might get in Singapore. I like to think of Penang sort of like Singapore before Lee Kuan Yew came in and modernized and sanitized. Everything, so Penang gives you that old feel I think of what Singapore would have been like. Before everything was cleaned up and so and not to say that it's dangerous or unhealthy to be there but you just get that kind of older. Feel you have people cook it on the streets for food and things like that. So the I highly recommend going just because it's different than a lot of other places you might go in Asia will in terms of Malaysia we're on or just off of the mainland portion of Malaysia in the. West Coast in the north. So we on cow before we're south of that which is way up by the border with Thailand and then we`re Two thirds the distance from Kuala Lumpur up to the type border. Yes yes. Like you say we're to the west of the mainland and very close actually up. I think there's only one one state may be two that are above pinning on the mainland before you get to. Thailand. So it is still pretty close to time. There is some influence of Thai Culture Thai food. In. What is in Penang Yeah I? Think you're forty miles from Thailand. yes. Yeah and what's interesting about pinning to is, and we'll talk about this a little bit more but you came and visited us when we were in Singapore and we went to the parental museum to remember that in singer. So Penang is one of three places in that Malaysian Singaporean area that has Parana Akin Chinese or also called the Straits Chinese also called the bubble Nokia's so they are located in Penang Malacca and in. Singapore. So I've actually been to all three places. I've been to the museums in each of those places and it's a fascinating culture. People from that culture came from China from mainland. China many years ago. treaters remember correctly yet and they came in and adopted many of the Malay Practices and cultures, and some of the foods and sort of turn them into their own. They were usually very very wealthy and their homes were extravagant and their furniture was lavish and carved, and they also incorporated some of the colonialism of the British. So they had fancy dinner ware and fancy glasses and mirrors and their homes were just beautiful and in Penang you can go onto Church Street, which is down in Georgetown and there is a Paranthan Museum there for Twenty Ringgit. which is almost nothing that's four ringgit to a dollar. So it's five dollars you can go in and get a tour of the product museum there, and it's fascinating. It was owned actually by a gangster. A Chinese gangster and his family I and It's now part of the state I believe as a museum and they do try to preserve this product can culture because it is only really in these three distinct places.

Thanks it's good to be here and let's deal with these tools for Amazon. Tell us I used at prosper show while ago, so that was really cool. You're obviously aware of how the world works settlers. What are these tools that you can share with us? Honestly tools are. I kinda Geek out on tools. I'm in general I'm kind of a software nerd.

You're just in the middle of all of the tools, so I'm going to mention a couple here and I'm GonNa give you like a one liner. Here's the tool. Here's why I love it. So, honestly, the one that's kind of up on my screen right now and so it's kind of in my face is slack and I find that a lot of Amazon sellers haven't adopted slack yet, and the reason I think a lot of them haven't adopted. Slack yet is because they haven't realized how inefficient email and just regular Google hangouts is. I find a lot of people using skype to communicate with their with their as your different individuals that way I love slack and its ability to create channels to create a context where everything goes. Basically, it's an instant messaging platform that allows you to do direct messages back and forth between individuals, and then it allows you to create public and private channels where you can discuss things like key metrics that the businesses going on, and it gives. Gives you a way to keep the context of the conversation going so for example we have a slack channel access needs and anytime someone needs access is something they go into that channel. They Post. Hey I. Don't have access to this Amazon seller central account. How do I get access? And then we go through that process to to figure out exactly what that looks like an and get it where it needs to go if that makes sense. Absolutely I'm just discovering. Slap myself. I'm very guilty of using. skype is the primary meeting for communicating with Va's and. It's OK until you get to the point where you try and dig into some information from weeks ago and then it comes. That's the thing like I'm short video about this. Did I even tell you about the? What was the link for that again? And then you nightmare? You described so elegantly before. Say Anything that helps you get organized. Upfront is a great thing for sure so my. Virtual Assistant. I when we use like I have an entire channel dedicated to the video. That I create for her so I've I've I use a another tool. WE'RE GONNA mentioned hair called screen cast, defy and screen cast if records videos and drops those videos into Google drive folder us another tool called. Zap, beer to automatically pick up those videos and push them into a specific slack channel so anytime a record video i. literally title it in a certain way pops it out into the Slack Channel and tells her what she's supposed to do with it a minor. That is just loving this. Because I use screen falsifying. I've used got a lot of videos on. There are US or got slack now of it up I haven't really been vigorous into my stuff I'm like Oh. Wow, I could do that I can say totally see how that would save me that. The assistant 'cause batsman three days and guys Mike, whereas all yeah got to send it. T- sorry. This is behind the. Title to get up and so I've got it. Set up now so if I don't put the word in all capitals private in the title of the video, it automatically goes to my va, and says hey. I was too lazy to title this, so please Bug me about what this video's even four and where it should go, so if I record a video, it goes to her period unless i. I write in all caps in the title private. Zapper is totally capable of listening for that word private and be like. Oh don't send this to her. So if I wanted to like, make video from partners, talking about everybody salaries or something like that I wanted to be a little more private. A totally could do that and I made Zap, Zapper drop it into a channel and away it goes and. And then I'm not hunting through a thread of threads imagine how much conversation goes back, and forth between me and my executive virtual assistant, its way to have channels man I would be in all sorts of trouble, so I try to use direct message communication with another individual I. Try to define those channels and say this is information that we're probably not going to need again. This is about chatter about. About. What's going on if I have information that we're going to need to look up again? I try to create a channel the to associate with that client, or whoever else it is, so we've got a lot of channels. Assist I'm not going to get a bit overwhelming I? Guess, but at least it's a lot less everyone undifferentiated stuff. Okay, so we got slack. Go Screen! Falsify because up here. What else your faith tools, so another one is the tool we're using right now to communicate zoom and a lot of people have heard of zoom, but maybe it will especially now they've probably heard of zoom, really powerful, very stable tool in terms of of video calls and getting face to face with people and getting some of those other pieces out of the way I just really appreciate. How stable is they've run into their growing pains, but even with the growing pains. It's outpaced several others that I've used.

"christensen" Discussed on Amazing FBA

"Development over it ship station, and we picked apart nomenclature, and what that does to automation it was it's. It's been a superfund series to to kind of see what it's like, and and take all sorts of different angles on that pivot point, which is the point at which you decided gaze at time to automate this process, delegate this process or eliminate this process at an I found that that exists everywhere in all businesses amazing so since you call it a pivot point I guess implies it's the point of change of direction between two different directions when the points come up, and can you just give us a concrete example because for those things abstractly? A donavan windows, people not, but let's give it simple. So what what you have to think about is. How are you gonNA, take what you're looking at and really build upon it and grow upon it and see where it's going and as an entrepreneur when you're getting into a process, let's say that you're process was taking tracking numbers out of manufacturer's email and pasting those tracking numbers. Amazon because you're fulfilling that way you as. As somebody WHO's dropped shipping your stop, or let's say that it was managing some piece of your FDA process where you got these. The labels that are coming in, you gotta put those labels in spreadsheet. Print them all out and do whatever it is. Whatever that process that you're doing is what you're looking for is when it starts to take more than five one. Or more than fifteen fifteen, one more than fifty minutes a day fifteen, one one and I got to know my own tagline here so more than fifteen one one more than fifteen minutes a day more than an hour a week or more than an hour a month fifteen one what K., so if it's taking more than those different time points. That's where you start to look at it. Say Okay. It's probably time to start looking at it. Then I add a further litmus test on this where we say okay. Is it taking more than that much time and if I were to bring on an intern, somebody who had basic cell? Sheets and email experience. Would it take me the same amount of time to teach them how to do it as it And if you think Oh, you know what I could teach, somebody like they only have to watch me do this once and then led need little to no guidance after that to do that job. That's probably a prime target for automation delegation or elimination. And in that in that situation I would do it in sequence I I would delegate that responsibility to someone, and after they delegate it, I would say I would like you to document that process and see exactly what that is how I. Did it where it goes, they documented. Then after you've documented that process, you're ready to start saying okay now. That I've documented at other person. It's been running there for a couple of weeks. Can I automate this start doing some google search and seeing where it is, and then you eliminate the manual process? It turns into something that's automated. See kind of have to see where that is in terms of that talking about those labels that you're creating or or whatever else it is, it's about finding a process that is repetitive. That you can then systematize enhanced off to a robot or to a human being told me about the eliminate pace than. Not come earlier in the process. Let you view what you're doing and go how we don't need to be doing this. Boys you elimination eliminating stuff on your personal play. I think elimination goes into to those damn points while you talk about eliminating business, waste and elimination really is the process of choosing what's working so another book. That I love that I think has talked about the on our on our last episode. On this episode I want to mention the lean startup because the lean startup is all about elimination. It's all about. Fail faster right find out what isn't working so that you can eliminate it and start working towards what is working and do real life test to figure out as quickly as possible. Okay, so elimination is really part of developing business was probably business development as much as just not wasting money aspect. I'm I suppose the conduct size of the same thing on is what is saying is is not enough to have a fatty wasteful business that kind of works, anyway, the whole thrust of what you're doing is finding those unnecessary things getting rid of getting rid of getting rid of I'm what you're left with this the kind of Basic framework of a really powerful business. Is that your take on complex book ready obviously like a lot of people. The thing that I would say is it's about creating that. Stop doing list. I found that my start. Doing list is generally always longer than my stopped. Doing list I always have new ideas that I want to try new things that are there, but I have a hard time letting go of things, and so if I can figure out how to systematically let go of that, which is less important, my money generating opportunities are going to increase because I'm finding the things which don't generate revenue and I'm eliminating them so. It's very important that you have a start doing list, but you equally important, if not more important, because less people are doing how a stop doing list. What is it that we is? A business should stop doing. We should stop allowing customers to call us. We should only allow customers to it. Put it in be a form, and here's why right and and that might not be right for your business your. Business might need a hotline where people. People can call in. There's something there, but you kind of have to see what is it? That's becoming a drain on my time. That is not generating as much revenue as the other pieces of the business I guess they say that the perfect of the goods. That's the kind of perfectionists Secreta. I need to remember on the other hand. The quite good is the enemy of the excellent as well as the other thing that the really halting. Let go of I. Find is stuff is kind of working not really great. I mean I know that. What was missing status? For example you have products that clearly that profitable, but they soda Shave degree that kind of work, and then they have some wildly profit products. In some cases, they also sell a low volume always like. Please would you consider reality your capital on time and energy from here a here in other words from the media could said the great products and I completely get why people don't do, but she's really valid, or is this just a nice theory or no I think that's that's beyond valid. They've come out with this new. I don't know how new I would call it but foam right fear of missing out I. Think if you let foam, oh, drive your business. It's GonNa. Drive it right into the ground because you are missing out on the potential increase opportunities on the other side, so it's important when you're recognizing like all I WANNA cancel I. Don't know if I want to stop ordering not because what if tomorrow it picks up and it starts going where it needs to be I think you kind of have to put a time limit on it. It right when you hire a new salesperson. Are you hire a new a new person? You kind of have a mental note of our I'm going to let this go for two to three bonds, and then we're going to revisit this. We're GONNA see. You know if this is really gonNA work, or this is what we all want to do, and so I think it's important to do the same thing with products you look at it. It's okay I'm if this product has not increased ten percent above where it is right now. In in the next three months. It's out. I'M NOT GONNA. Order any more of it so healthy i. think you just said. It's so easy to just fall into. It's kind of making money so mess with it and I think having really tough criteria. And holding yourself to Mrs so hard I sleep. It's kind of simple, isn't it? has like things in life that work? I don't know what else to say. Except this is really great advice against the the final question them before we wrap this up. His was simple nextstep forgetting on with us. If people feel like they recognize ability of what you've said, what do we do next I?.

Travel to Brittany France

"Today, the amateur traveler talks about walled towns and standing stones, beaches, and folk festivals, pirates, and you boats as we go to Brittany in France. Welcome to the amateur traveler I'm your host Chris? Christensen. Let's talk about Britney. I'd like to welcome to the show Kristen Montgomery from growing global citizens dot com who come to talk to us about the region of France known as Brittany Kristin welcome to the show. Thanks Chris and I want to say the Duchy of Brittany, but that's really not the term anymore so. It's definitely part of France officially where we talking about. So Britney is located in north western France, and as you said, it used to be a duchy, but in the fifteen hundreds it was incorporated as part of France basically taken over a against their will, so there's still a very strong regional identity. There are some people that still identify as being brought tone before their French slump. And why should someone go to Britney? Britney is a place that is not usually on lots of travelers lists. Obviously, if you're going to head to France, you think of Peres you think of southern France provence or niece, but there are a lot of really great things to see in Britannia, Britney there are beautiful beaches first of all, and it's actually sand beaches, unlike the rocky beaches that you find down south. It's a great place for a multi generational trip. So if you're traveling with family, it would be an excellent place to visit because it's a little bit less touristy, less crowded. There are more things to do that are in small towns out in the country. And it has this Celtic identity like I said the the Britain identity that really is not found in any other place in France, and so you're going to be hearing things like bagpipes for music. You're going to be seeing traditional dancing, even some of the Breton, language. and. I found that people here were really very very friendly. which is something that I hate to say, but sometimes and other parts of France especially, you think of Paris. They don't really have the reputation of being very friendly, but people here really took the time to be able to chat. And if you're someone that likes history or is into myths and legend Brittany has a lot of that, too. Excellent. What Are you going to recommend for us? So I would recommend starting in Ren, ren is in the eastern part of Brittany. And you can fly in, or you can take the train. The TJ evade from Paris. It's about an hour and forty five minutes. There are international flights into rent from other places in Europe, but I don't think there are any from the US or from north. America directly. If you're looking for a place, that would have more connections. That would be a bigger city. You can also fly into note, which is farther south and not officially right now is no longer part of Brittany in the administrative region, but it was part of that she. And there is a quite a bit to see there, too. So I won't talk about that today, but that's another option if you want more connections. And, so for the itinerary like I said you're going to start in Rin and then most of the things to see our along the coast, so you're basically going to do a clockwise circle, and you can go all the way around following the coast and then get back to ren okay. Excellent we'll let's jump in a little more detail. What are we going to Iran before we head to the coast? Okay so. Is the cultural capital of Brittany to university town, and it's really easy to get around. I will mention that you're gonNA. WanNa rent a car to be able to do this. Because there are a lot of small towns that you're going to want to be able to go in and out of. But when you're in rent itself, you don't need a car. They actually have a great metro and it's the smallest city in France to have metro. And this one is driverless also so it goes both underground and above ground, and it was really clean and safe and efficient, so that was that was something that I didn't really expect, but it was a very pleasant surprise. So, Ren is known for its half timber houses, which is funny, because that really I think we're on the other end of France over and. Also as lorraine or something like that when I see the half timber houses, yes, exactly that part of France and then Germany to places where you usually think of those, but it's very much native to the architecture here and I believe it's done in a slightly different way, but I'm not positive about that, but the half timber houses are usually the first level is stone, and then on top of that they're usually three or four other levels that have these big pieces of wood, and then they're deaf clan of plaster or mud in between them. When they're all different colors, and so when you see them all together for example, plastic undone. It's a big square where you can see this architecture and Ren, and some of these are incredibly old. They're dating from the fifteenth to Seventeenth Century. All the way back in the Middle Ages incredibly old by American standards is an exactly. Yes, thank you. Yes. It's all relative actually in Renton. They're kind of pockets of these and the reason. There aren't more is because like many other places. There was a big fire in seventeen twenty, and so many of them were destroyed, and so part of the town has this much older architecture and part of the town has more modern architecture. And another thing you're want to see. Is the Britain parliament building and like I said Brennan kind of the. Of Brittany, and so this parliament building originally had a little bit more autonomy than it does now now. It's really part of France, but they still do some court cases here it's it's basically a court of Appeals. The architecture that's there is beautiful. Especially, the grown Sean Code they have paintings and tapestries in there. It's all Gold Leaf. I believe the

Travel to Alabama

"Welcome traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen just see if we don't deliver on that word epic that I put in the intro. We've got lots to talk about as we talk about Alabama. I'd like to welcome the show. Larry Beiber who is a freelance travel, writer and editor also has his own website at Larry Bloomberg. Dot Com, and also at civil rights travel dot com, and he's come to talk to us about Alabama Larry Welcome to the show. Let's great to be here, Chris. This is a show that is about a year and a half in the making at least not with Larry. We just got him involved recently, but I've done three trips to Alabama last year and a half and had been really wanting to do a show about it. But I really wanted to do it with somebody who knew more about Alabama than I did and Larry. You've lived in Alabama for eleven years. I, think. We say that's right over a decade. And you came there to work a job in the travel magazine industry at. At coastal living, which was based here as is southern living in cooking, light and a lot of other magazines. Why should somebody go to Alabama? There's lots of reasons and I think the place to start is that most people don't know about Alabama? They they know. Their stereotypes there's. There's what they've heard over the years, but the truth is the south remains one of the most colorful and least understood parts of the country and the best way to learn about. It is to go there, and it's easy. It's easy to do and this I. Think will turn People's view under head. It's the center of Civil Rights History which I think. A lot of people know in the best way to understand that as visit the sites where these famed events happened. But it's also got incredible food. One of the most vibrant food scenes in the country right now mountains in some of the best beaches in the country, if not the world, which again does not fit that stereotype that people have the deep south well. I'm going to be one of those people that admits that I Alabama was something like my forty seventh state to go to or something like that, and it was kept to the last somewhat because I grew up in the sixties, and my picture of Alabama was what I saw on the nightly news. It was that troubled. Civil Rights history that we talk about which we can. Celebrate what happened now and and what went on, but it was kind of tough to watch it all going on at the time, and that colored my views of Alabama for pope. And I have fallen in love with the state here in the last trips that I've gone through and a little surprised to say that because I didn't really expect to. But what would you recommend for an itinerary for Alabama? Alabama literally goes from the mountains to the seas in I I would start just for simplicity's sake in the north. In Huntsville and in the Florence area where you will see incredible NASA rocket history because I was intrical part of the NASA system, the NASA development and then. Some a rock and roll shrine in the muscle shoals hall of fame, and then down to Birmingham where you do find that civil rights history where a lot of those disturbing images happen half a century ago. Frankly and now it's one of the most vibrant food scenes in the country and a place. That really has a buzz to it. There's a lot of new parks architecture. There's a lot of people they may be. Decades ago would have left to go off to find their fortune in New York or Los Angeles. And now they're staying there and creating some wonderful things and then I. go down to Montgomery with the state capital. Eight incredible new memorial is just open. I don't know if you've seen that. The equal justice just there. The Lynching Memorial, which I was told by an architecture critic, maybe the most important memorial in this country in the decade. Right up there with the Vietnam war memorial to the victims of lynching very sobering in your face, challenging kind of place, then go out to places I don't think are as much on the radar for people as far as Alabama mobile is a surprise mobile I call the little easy, because it's a lot like New Orleans, but it's tiny. It's much easier to navigate in. It's a lot of fun and then down to this beautiful beautiful Gulf. Shore beaches, the white sands, sugar sand beaches that I literally I been in Borussia of all places in the Indian Ocean on the beaches, and I came to the Gulf coast the next month. For some reason, it just worked out in the Gulf coast. Beaches were better than what I had seen in the Indian. Ocean Sept-. Beautiful I will back you up on that end in both a surprise part and the beautiful part. That will give you a good week from north the sound that

Travel to Devon and Cornwall, England

"Welcome to amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Devon and Cornwall. I'd like to welcome to the show. Ryan Duffield from Devon who has come to talk to us about the city of Plymouth in southern England and also the surrounding area, including Devon and Cornwall. Ryan welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me Howie. Good well, you know and it's funny because we just talked about the English coast, but we've moved a little further to the West and talk. Talk about a different region of the coast than we did on the show recently when we talked about Suffolk and the the downs. Why should someone go to Plymouth Plymouth? Actually it's a fantastic city. It's a city that goes amazing maritime history and tradition that dates right back to the medieval times, but actress quite often overloaded when people think of cities in England. They think oh of Lunden Bama again. Manchester Liverpool perhaps. I think Plymouth is just as much. Interest is end if those cities, but it's just north of us so much, and I think particular twenty American. Listeners interested is also the city where the pilgrim father set sail on the mayflower. Sixteen twenty associated with the traditional thanksgiving. S Pre interesting point. Is also surrounded by beautiful coastline. It's right on the border of the county's of Devon and Cornwall these are two of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK down in the South West of England, said Scott lost offer. Willing we're looking for dividend cornwall if we go down to the English map and you go far bottom left. That's where we are, and if you go further bottom further left from there, you end up in the ocean. So we're. Right on the south coast of Devon Oklahoma so are literally facing out to the Atlantic okay well and facing out towards the south. Yes, excellent well, what? Are. You GonNa. Recommend Fourth Festival is obviously starting in the city centre, so the city is actually pretty much based around the coast and its large harbours, so I would say starting day Sutton Haba, which is the main harbor in the city and that so where the city spreads out from I'm from around the. You've all sorts of things to say side. You've got things like the mayflower steps. Steps, which is where there's the pilgrim fathers actually set sail from and this museum dedicated to that you've also got what's the Barbican? which is this old coupled street state specs, medieval periods, which is full of these is correct, slim pubs and bars, restaurants shops things like that, and it's one of the few passes cities. The city was actually bombed June. Sacramento War by the Nazis and the. The city was destroyed, and this is one of the well preserved areas of that city out, also recommend site just basically following the coastline of the city's known as Britain's Ocean City for good reason, because it will revolve around that and overlooking the area. What looks like is huge, fool trust, but what actually is actively operating? Royal Marines and Royal Navy base. That's right in the heart of. Of the city and they still have people that you can save people, training and things, and they actually do tours of that interestingly and I'm not sure how many military basis you can know many Abitur tour during the middle of the day. You can't do that well and it seems like one of the reasons they do that, too. Is You mentioned? This is not a new military base. Quite historical, so this is where the ships sailed out to fight the Spanish Armada for absolutely, and the city is very synonymous with Francis Drake. Who is the man who led the defeating of the Spanish the? He was from Plymouth. Things like the main shopping center in the city named optimus could drake circus, and you'll find lots of other places around the city named after him. You also have along. Along the Bob sell them this coupled medieval street. You have the Plymouth Gin distillery, which is actually the oldest gin distillery in the country, and of course you can go in then you can have tools that you can find out how the GIN is made. You can find out the botanic WHO's they use? Jin's at the end of that. So if you're GIN, Fan Pathak place to go we'll. Get into more detail on all these things. So in terms of the BARBICAN. For instance you mentioned the Plymouth Gin distillery. There are different pubs and things. Do you have a favorite pub? Is there someplace that we ought to check out? There is a place I feel bad commending it, but there's a web spins now Weber spins is a national chain across the country. If you live in the UK, you know about web of Spain's. They've actually got really nice bar that down on the Babacan. Babacan, which is right by the Plymouth Gin Distiller Selfish Nickel Jin from that, but they've got huge selection of our genes of a drinks there, but all the buildings there because they're all medieval style buildings that is then become ingrained within the actual itself garnered sovereignty. Highly recommend that this is places down the thyroid record. Think of any off the top of my head. Okay mix over a new kind of places and very traditional old pubs as well which great.

Travel to Bosnia

"Welcome to the amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen? Let's talk about Bosnia. I like to welcome to the show. Canaan Charter, which who is coming from Bosnia and his coming to us from highlander adventures dot, be and has come to talk to us about Bosnia Herzegovina. Canaan welcome to the show. Thank you very much happy to be here excellent and for people who can't find Bosnia and Herzegovina on a map. Where are we talking about? Well. Everyone knows how to find Italy. It's a big shoe ships country. You have a boot-shaped country, so just go to the right side across the Atlantic Sea and we are right there. Well and your neighbor of Croatia. Bosnia you know goes around like little crescent moon. knoll on the West and south, and then these we have Serbia and southeast Montenegro. I to address. You're interested in making sure that people understand that. If they remember news about Bosnia, they may be remembering news from twenty thirty years ago when Bosnia was going through. A, war that's done, and that's been done now for quite a long time there there are people who are out in the working world who don't remember that and it's a wonderful place to go I. Want to say that I was anxious to do this show because we haven't done a show on Bosnia for a long time. And since then I have been to the country and loved it. So why should someone go to Bosnia Herzegovina? Well, there is a lot of reasons depending what you're interested in now. Bosnia is very complex country, but extremely small size of Pennsylvania, but inside. You have so much for the adventure seekers. There are so many adventure opportunities from Whitewater. Rafting canyoning to paragliding hiking is spectacular, and then if you're into history, we say that we have much more history than we can handle. Different Than Empires were here. We like to say where the crossroads or that where the meeting between the East and the West. Culturally very complex country, and also religiously we have Muslims, we have the Orthodox Christians, and we have Catholics with three big groups. Of course there's the Jewish community here which has been here since they were thrown out of Spain after Kista, so for five hundred years, all of these make this crazy, crazy and beautiful mix that very interesting for foreigners to see because inside I will for example and. And in many other cities in Bosnia, you can pined mosque Docs Church Catholic, Church and a synagogue literally in two hundred meter radius, and it's been like that for five hundred years while inside I will because that's how will the city is? And all of a Bosnia and we're very proud of that architecturally very different from anything else you can find in Europe you're GonNa, find this mix of. Of European styles as well as the optimum styles and a lot of course, local Bosnian styles in all of that mixed together will like to say that we are a Bosnian pots. That's one dish that we have. It's cooked in a big pot with a lot of things, mixed sight, and that's Bosnia a lot of things mixed, and it works perfectly. An Indian taste is fantastic why you should. Should visit Bosnian well. Whatever you choose. You're GONNA love it. If you're into history too much of it, you're into nature. It's absolutely stunning. It's fantastic, magic Pennsylvania, and then put inside the Rockies Grand Canyon Inca trail at a lot of other things as well a bit of New Zealand as well. We just like seaside. We have twenty four kilometers of seaside, so that's one thing with them have. And then, of course, for actually learning history or getting certain messages, let's say about life about history. How people live together or how they don't like each other, because while we had a lot of wars, let's especially in the last two hundred years. There's a lot of lessons that you can learn in Boston. Let's say war tourism doctors is now very big part of tourism in in Bosnia so if you want to learn about that, we are definitely to come to see what happens. If you don't defeat fascism, like most of Europe defeated off the Second World War and it actually shows how life can be both good and the bat also if you want to visit a place. which is completely different than rest of the Europe and very relaxed very laid back with fantastic food, most at a lot of reasons I think.

"Like two percent milk, perhaps and So. Like beyond sort of monster design ideas It wasn't ever talked about too much, but I will say like when when you're when you're writing a script for an eight year old. You do worry that you're gonNA have the Baba Duke Child actor performance, you know. Because I mean as great as that movie is. That kid is incredibly annoying and so you know I think a lot of people are put off by that because he's always screaming and you know it's gets kid actors. They're they're terribly. They're very hard to work with so when writing dialogue and stuff like that, it was very much about keeping it simple and keeping it smaller, and you want to mitigate as many chances for. For something to not land because of a performance and we got super lucky. Because jet was able to do it all like there's no, there's nothing in the film that I kinda cringe through right Gullick crap. It's kid actor and you know that goes all the way to just him. Being on set like he was never just a kid actor was always just jet the actor because he's very Polish. He's been in a million things. So it was, we got super fortunate with him. But that you know it's always the fear I mean. If we knew ahead of time. That jet was the kid you probably would have had a lot more. You know. The six cents type lines in there. Just give him give him the opportunity, so but when you're going, you're just like okay, we're. We're on a path. We have to follow it. is a challenge like that something you enjoy and look forward to now I mean. It's terrifying, because I mean when you're doing an Indian, you're doing a small budget film. You're trying to keep the amount of fail points to a minimum. You don't want to. You're not gonNA write a film like all like Z., and then all of a sudden you jump to Air Force. One and there's like guys guns. You're just like you just don't do that because you don't have the budget of the time or anything like that. You have to keep things very small so you can have your little set piece opportunities like going to play an indoor play place, or you can go to a train yard. So, you have these moments, but yeah, you're. You're definitely just trying to limit the amount of headaches that could exist and that all started from when we worked on, it stands read We were shooting like an hour to two hours outside of the city every day. So you wake up extra early. You drive for an hour to two hours every day, so you can get to your location, and then you..

"Christensen good stuff right there and I had some good stuff not a lot of people are aware that either and that's what today's about the second thing that I would check this out actually saw that the other day okay I have someone come and they're they're planning on getting a certain amount of security and then they had a beautiful pension to go with it okay we'll call him Johnny all right so Johnny comes and he's got his his whole retirement mapped out he says I'm a get fifty Grantham says Kerry I'm all get thirty grand for my pension and I'm living my current lifestyle that I'm living now that I'm retired all doing what I want in retirement I'm not working to make that money I'm retired so he's got this all set out of his mind and I asked was if you run into any type of tax report on this he said well I figure kind of be taxed at my normal tax rate or or a lot less though because I'm not working anymore right right that's actually sat a lot less because I'm not working I solicit those pumps a cinema city because he wasn't aware so securities tax like most people I don't blame them exactly so he's counting on about fifty grand from social security interview of forty five and now less than that thirty five right because of his pension because the search committee to be taxed even markets count as ordinary income so you go some fifty to thirty five some fifty down into the upper thirties wow right from social security tax that's a game changer all right that's a lifestyle change and guess what else is tax but a pensioner I just talked about yeah by the way that's still tax too right right so a lot of people think all not working anymore me tax last well hold on X. not necessarily because you're so scared is taxable if you're allowed to be in your pension taxable in two income sources he's relying upon he was getting a lot less than you planned and budgeted on yeah right I looked I saw the same thing the other day we'll call call of my client Lucy all right we'll say Lucy Evan username a long time so so Lucy they're doing the same thing they had about fifty as well and what they found out was dead so security ministration iris is going to take about fourteen thousand dollars of you a year just from their social security and it let's say Lucy lived thirty years in retirement do you know how much money Sam total they're going to take the next thirty years let's just call out a lot all right it was well over three hundred thousand dollars of their social security money they were gonna take in the form of taxation three hundred grand people don't think of it like that now as they do not now that's three hundred grand gets taken from a search here too so that means that's three hundred thousand dollars that you gotta take from where from somewhere else your own pocket drone pilots to make up the difference right tonight depend on those other funds that you didn't plan on dipping and well what can you do that let let's say Lucy okay listens to looking at that three hundred thousand dollar number is going to be taken from a social security reform attacks Asian she's like Hey Chris stamp what can I do I want that money back I want that three underground because I know I could do some with long spend about or than the government can can she do well first thing you gotta do Chris you gotta see where the problem actually is right what is causing your search committee to be tax right and then you're going to analyze it like you just said and see how much you're going to pay in taxes which then allows the report to go through and see what to do about it what sections you might qualify for to reduce the taxes on your social care to so Lucy can reduce the taxation on her social security and actually keep that money for herself absolutely there's tons of potential to actually reduce taxes on social media people are taking advantage of because not bother to log your rides him or the or more important maybe they don't know where to look your rise him because that's what I did for the city I actually almost eliminated all of it for her and she was able to keep almost all of that social security number to keep that three hundred grand for herself the way you do that is with the social security tax report same thing I did for her here's here's what we're gonna do if you want your own social security tax support all you gotta do is be won the next nine callers gotta cut got to have a a cut off their next nine callers get your pen and pad I'll take down this number this is complementary for you but for the next nine only going to get your very own source tree tax report and show you how to reduce the social security.

"That was a one hit wonder Christensen says was none of the subsequent records even made it to the charts yes everyone does call him when he went to and laughs at him cetera will forte welcome doubles I and I so enjoyed extraordinary thank you very much it's so funny when I'm when I'm listening without a visual component and I believe that they can be conceived of this movie is basically that it is I I play a character that Sir I'm jumping right into this but I play a character who was it who had one huge hit and then I haven't washed up grow old rockstar and I want another hit so I sold my soul to the devil basically and the movies about this woman Maeve Higgins who tries to come after me but but there's always a little suspension of disbelief in watching any kind of movie but when I heard that to believe that that was that was that some of the icing lahmlahlah let them but I guess you know so I was gonna say a song that I didn't think should have been ahead I don't want to be mean to anybody I mean you get the pleasure of it in this realm wearing some truly glorious your character lives in a castle yes you get to wear some castle appropriate garb in the film area and do some nice for some really cool prancing that I read the word but it's great because a lot of lot of the satanic robes and stuff like that but but it was just kind of cold when we were making this and we're in this you know castles in Ireland don't have great heating systems so so it was nice to stay warm and and yeah if it all worked there some multi multi scarf system's going oh yeah I think no it's a real it's a real Steven Tyler meets by Alastair Crowley I guess were there any particular rock stars that you observed in preparing to play this can really do anything like that but the guys my commander who directed and and wrote the movie they they kept talking about Krista Berg and I was like I you know I like lady in red and and kind of feel like he has some other songs that were were popular that's the one he's most known for but he seemed like a very nice guy so I don't know why they kept bringing up you know him as this person to be appointed to assist hate nest I don't think he's as safe as we may be is very religious I don't know but yeah well he's the same did you know that he's not a singer I don't I don't know why I will I am open minded to everything because yet another question that always comes up is do you believe in ghosts and what what the hell do I know I don't know your maybe I don't not believe in ghosts I I think too many people you know make makes it is just stand by this belief that they're not a hundred percent about but then they get real stubborn on it I don't know I don't believe in ghosts because if ghosts were real I don't think I could deal with that really but I'd I really fear freaked out but that's the thing is I I tend to believe that there might be goes some you know in some form or another at the end but they could be but you know they just like the movie shows there in just like a little teeny things it's not not at all it could just be here because over here I can help you with today you know to maybe my favorite joke in the movie is have you ever had a bad dream after eating cheese it's very easy for ghosts it's very easy for ghosts to occupy the live cultures students should have yes there's so much little fun stuff but in fact when they sent me the script they sent along with the script this I think that they have put together like a three minute clip a three minute short that is made to look like an old video taped show it essentially is the very beginning of the movie if you're going to see the movie which is Maeve Higgins father used to you know do this series where he would kind of explain the talents which word you know basically the talents were your abilities to you know interact with ghosts and stuff like that so so in this it's do you know it's explaining how ghosts are everywhere they're in you know you could do anywhere you look you can find them in in about ten seconds and they're talking about the different places you can find them in to your member ID he says how gravel all right and if there's just like a little spare you know one piece rattles skittering along the the drive way and and I was like Justin from that moment I hadn't even read the script yet I'm like I'm gonna do this thing I'm Jesse thorn you're listening to bullseye my guest will forte stars in the new horror comedy extra ordinary I'm you mentioned how hard you worked on your sitcom last man on earth yeah there were three creators of the show of whom you were one two of them almost immediately upon creating the show became the most successful action comedy writer producers in Hollywood after they made the lego movie and you where you became the basically the the soul show runner of the show along with being its star I can't imagine how much work it wise to star in a network television sitcom where if it's working you're making literally almost two dozen episodes a year while also right our supervising the writing of all of this it was so insane it was just it was a crazy my work I never knew what went into doing the show and I came up as a writer and is so so but but it but you know I I got the SNL job before before I was that high up the ranks that you were involved in too much production stuff so so it you know so so I had to do all this stuff it did agreed to be the show runner at first just thinking how well do you know that's my show I'm a control freak I wanted to turn out the way I wanted to it but but had no idea what I was getting myself into and and it was the most amount of it just crazy amount of work because it you know you'd you'd be for a while you're just writing in your trying to bank as much material as you as you can but then production starts and so you have to be you especially for this show I am and I was in everything in the beginning because it was just me and then shawl Kristen Schaal and then there were like three people but you're in everything and and another one is showing members of the show to be clear is that of virus has destroyed the human race yeah initially you believe yourself to be the only survivor eventually find a couple of other survivors yeah but like basically for especially in the beginning the camera is always on you know like there's no there's no B. story where another guy from the office is stuck in the elevator or something so that your off screen for seven of the twenty three minutes of the show yeah just you yeah and then and then even later on when when more people came in and and there were a couple of years there would be scenes that I wasn't in it's still my shows so I got to stay down there and kind of check out what they're doing and then and then once we start editing then it's just then you're trying to write and right you're acting all day trying to find times within that data to rate and then editing on weekends it was I don't know I think I worked it out at some point it was like hundred and twenty hour work weeks for six months or hours to I I forget the exact thing but it was just so mentally and physically draining the best with the best way to describe it was it was the type of the type of workload where I remember new years one year writing until five minutes before the ball dropped on TV just scrambling over to my next door neighbors grabbing a Cup of champagne as it did you know it hit midnight cheers saying slurp down the champagne go back over at twelve ten and then start writing again is that was the kind of stiff is just bonkers I must have gone out of the house besides you know six times to do over the over that first season it it was it was just an insane amount of work more bulls eye after a quick break still to come we haven't talked with will forte about Saturday Night Live he was on that show for eight years we'll talk.

"Talk radio I mean the fuller well so leave recently you might find interesting it said that basically January is like one big Monday we're talking tonight with Christensen on a Walker of the mental health news radio network about how we seem to have this I'm sure you're familiar something called ME and anxiety apparently a third of commuters are stressed out before even stepping foot in the office no good way to start a day also talking about something perception matters emphasizing a woman's achievements will make her more likely to leave so we got a couple topics Kristin so glad to have you here thank you so much absolutely Amy you know I love to be here we are so glad to have you especially with everything you have going on you you run this whole network mental health news radio network you're one of the hosting you oversee dozens and dozens of people how many podcasts now many hosted topics are we up to now or up to sixty different shows that sixty different topics and we just launched our first responder mental health network so we're pretty busy you know that that doesn't bear mentioning first responders have far more PTSD than we that more than the average American the average citizen of course they see things on a daily basis and we probably don't see in our whole lifetime so how did this come about well we have five shows on the network that are dedicated to first responders from a detective in the police department to fireman's EMTs to veterans and I just I thought about it and I said you know we should that's enough shows to create its own network and make it easy for first responders to find as many shows covering you know mental health as possible so we just decided twenty twenty was the year we were going to launch this and we got it launched in December of twenty nineteen it's pretty good and it always bears mentioning that that anyone who might have an issue with mental health whether it's you or your family January is a tough time of year the holidays are over we have seasonal affect disorder that people talk about the probably is a very viable thing for so many and what we do here sometimes if there's a certain day in late January of it's known as the saddest day of the year now I know from you the stats show that suicide sadly it is about even all throughout the year but it does bear mentioning that that late those late few days in January the saddest days of the year you know we really should put out the help there you're doing this for not only first responders but for anyone who would just type in your website and mine so many resources and Kristen you started out helping on a suicide prevention hotline years before you started doing this yes as a teenager I'm surprised they even let me do it but this is before regulations but it was wonderful experience I'm really glad that I did it and I I can't express enough to people to just pick up that phone and make that call even if you know you're not you don't feel like you're suicidal but you've had suicidal thoughts just pick up that phone there people there they can understand where you're coming from and I'd say ninety nine percent of them have felt exactly the way you do and it's you know something like that I'm sure seems like a giant a giant step and it could be a giant step to well being but what it isn't is something we're going to check your social security number asking for your address your phone number your name anything it's private absolutely absolutely that's what I try to stress with the first responders because they likely don't call there they don't call it you know they don't call more than other people because of that whole I'm a first responder I don't have pain that kind of thing going on and so for them to be able to call and have their own hotline numbers to call and talk to other first responders is so important and they know they can no no one is going to call your fire chief or the department had a fear of the police department it's completely confidential yeah yeah so great and I understand are going to get like an seven nine one one the response a short number for people that's a suicide hotline that sort of easy to remember yes there that's in the works I don't want to say the number yet because it hasn't been decided exactly what number but as soon as they you know give the word will definitely talk about it on the show she is Christensen on a Walker she's a CEO and host of mental health news radio network along with all these people and many many more they are there for you twenty four seven so some of the topics we're talking about Kristen I'm let's just talk about women right now before we get to the commuters and the stress so we all have an ATM apparently it does sort of look like that even though typical businesses have been you know some other male driven we've all seen mad men and some of those lovely charming fifties and sixties and seventies shows that reflect our culture when they were male driven perception does matter and emphasizing women's achievements will make her apparently according to this study this report will make her more likely to leave it is very true I mean the younger generation so we're talking you know not Jen acts were talking millennials and Gen Z. you know they don't have as much of an issue around this which is great as we do in the you know Melissa in the and while I've got it all wrong the Jacksons on up in the boom and the baby boomers right so you wanna hire Jen what we're Jan axes in here about this till after they started with a millennial's reason why and then I heard that we had a title so as long as we're not part of the the baby boomers that the millennials and younger are saying Hey okay boomer statement to make it so it's a put down of of an older generation but the generations of ours where we've been in whatever our field is for a long time we're looking for those leadership positions we have the experience to have leadership positions but we're still carrying a lot of baggage from the days when women weren't so you know nurtured in the workplace we carry that a lot more in there a lot more of us out there that are you know in positions of wanting power and of wanting to be a leadership position so there's still a lot that needs to be done in order to make us feel comfortable taking on those leadership positions founded report reflected that the people of of the people higher levels are looking at women either positively or negatively and or does it have more to do with people our ages having this affliction where we feel like well where where men we came up this way were was a man's world and maybe it's not affecting millennials and Gen Y. I guess because they don't really see it that way they don't see that there's been any money and they may not even know what the phrase glass ceiling means Christian right they don't even know what that means ceiling I can go as high as they want and that's that's what people have been fighting for for decades that's what we are we're generation fought for yeah I think it's I think it's a lot of our generation so these Gen x.'ers we're in that in between state where we see what's happening in the younger generations but we have the experience and that kind of lash back back backslash announced from not being able to get to those higher places and hitting that glass ceiling so we are nervous about going after those leadership roles because we don't feel entirely comfortable so I think it's a lot of what we do to ourselves for good reason I'm not blaming our generation at all but you know it's hard to be kind of in that middle place question I have to ask because we see so many you know as as many times as millennials say okay boom or to make a few purchases and we might say okay millennials you don't know who dot EDU is you don't know what this phrase means at the other end is kind of funny we can all relate to other is there a sense of entitlement with millennials when it comes to male or females this stand age twenty second I'm gonna bring you right back but I just can't help it reach out and ask about that I see it all the.

"Whom I'm sure I'm sure you're very familiar with Christensen on Walker of the mental health news radio network she is CEO and one of the many many host and she gives her time to us tablets have all better mental health and if you think she's talking about Kristin I love this because it talks about a new report and parents who have to sit down and try to re learn math and other topics to try to help our kids do homework this is a great it is a tip on how to help your kids do better in math specifically we're gonna chat about that and we're also talking about a survey showing many women feel trapped in their relationships due to financial independence Chris about if if what I feel trapped because of financial dependence they may not even it may almost be like a sort of job or not a sort of thing where they may be happier than they are but they have this this false belief that they can't get out and be on their own if they wanted to and it's just it's just a little bit heartbreaking on on each spectrum absolutely we had a wonderful private investigator come on about a year ago and he talked about how he would have many women call in and say I need you to investigate my husband he's doing these awful things and so on and but I'm really afraid to leave and that was the biggest reason was they were afraid to lose that financial security and it wasn't because they were used to being pampered and you know they were used to the high life it was more that they were just afraid that they couldn't do things like eat pay the rent take care of the kids so it's a real intrinsic fear that comes up for women that are you know taking care of by their husbands financially and this is a study of two thousand women married and cohabitating who discovered the the report discovered that two thirds of the respondents whose partners are the primary providers do in fact feel trapped in all seventy percent of those surveyed said they feel society felt societal pressure to be subservient to their husbands and to take the husbands last name again and all these things where they're sort of fighting traditionalism not sure how many of these respondents had kids or not but what are we supposed to take from this well I'd say we need to take for meant that even if you know you're married and you're the homes you know the person that staying at home with the kids you still need to have your own autonomy and you still need to build your own life and you know if you're not staying home taking care of the kids but you make less money than your spouse definitely Kerr about what life would look like if you you know can only rely on your income and make it less scary for you there's something about you know the unknown that scares us but if you just take a little bit of time to see what this is the apartment I can afford this is what I can afford in terms of paying bills and and make a checklist of that it makes it less scary to you know think about doing something like maybe going out on your own especially if you're in maybe an abusive relationship you know we always hear about these sometimes it has to do only hear about charities our organization to come forward and say we can help you so if you need to leave a bad situation if it is something abusive you can come here no questions asked don't worry about whether you have enough money will put you up for a certain amount of time will mentor you I work with the group in southern California that does just that it's it's quite fascinating in this study nearly sixty nine percent of those surveyed admit they would not be able to maintain their current lifestyle without their romantic partner and another seventy percent which they have more power regarding monetary decisions with their partners do these numbers surprise you in this day and age where were decades past women's lives now they don't surprise me at all I mean there's so many things that don't get talked about that are still going on and and when there's still a lot of stigma around reaching out for help you know about why I'm not going to be one of those women so you know there's a lot around education that you know one of those women and all women it's it's not you know something to be ashamed as and there is something to be said for you know carving your out a life for yourself how much is your freedom works and to me it would be worse everything but getting past what society's idea of how you should live that's really tough be interesting to find his for the ages were of these people who are responding Kristin because you do it's just different self talk at different times and live it can be very scary depending on what you've gone through in the past absolutely I think a lot of women are they've been doing it so long where they've counted on someone else to do for them and even if you know that is an abusive relationship you you've lost the muscles the skill building that it takes to do it on your own so some of it is something that you are creating or you're perpetuating yourself and that's why those skill building things that you can do to see how you could live are really vital maybe there are things to talk about with your spouse and working on it all could be good so but got to move on to the next topic Kristin this has to do with our children and math is there anything there might be far fewer far fewer things that pure worst things that a parent and trying to help your children through all that math homework I guess many kids can develop a long lasting sense of low self esteem when it comes to math skills early in their academic careers and a new study finds that positive self talk can boost a child's math grades so what do parents need to now well they need to know that it even if your afraid of your you know math because of your own Hey I ditched those classes and went to the beach which is exactly what I did you need to know that you know you you can do this you can support your children through this and you are not a last stand parent if you don't understand this algebraic equation that they're doing take some of those courses that you know some of those mass schools with them and that's what I did to actually feel better I took a beginner primer course at a math center and that was you know four children and I paid for a course with thirty you know the tutors there so that I wouldn't feel so ignorant about it since I did go surfing instead of focusing on my mask and this is a study of over two hundred children in the Netherlands between the ages of nine to thirteen grades four to six hours interesting you took a class to help your kid I guess there should be a class on Lawrence high school or middle school maybe saying here's what to tell your kids later on I don't know well I think to in in math classes let's talk about mental health in those classes you know let's have a teacher who is a math teacher that's very science focused talk about the science of mental health say you are not stupid if you don't understand this if you don't just automatically get mass that is not a great against you some people's brains work differently and that's OK we'll talk more with Chris is not a Walker.

but our friend Christensen on a Walker of the mental health news radio network is here to chat about a few things including what do we do how do we handle the toxic people in our lives and are they really toxic do we need to be around them at all Kristin welcome back to America trends hi Amy happy holidays happy holidays to you dear how's it going it's going great I'm I'm loving this holiday season because I have all these great tools to use to make it through unscathed I was just going to say that this is what you study every single day so you know where to go you know we only boundaries in so many instances alive all year round but this is one where they really do come up absolutely every trigger wound everything during the holidays and you add in eating too much maybe drinking too much you know you as stress of extra money being spent I mean this is a this is a perfect storm here that we have during the holidays it is all the usual suspects we've we've already started Halloween and thanksgiving we already put on a few more pounds were a little nervous about seeing anybody maybe we shouldn't be but maybe we are we've got all the money that the people would we feel like we need to spend during Christmas and the holidays whatever you're celebrating and then the rest of time management and and so just and then having to do with the talk to people you try to avoid all year long holy cow Kristin she yeah I think about those work parties where you're like you know IT did ballot at lunch when I have to run into so and so and now I have to go to a work party where my colleague and their toxic wife are going to be there and I can't really did out of that so yeah there's a lot of extra pressure cooker situations that we have to deal with with holiday cheer any products making sure your product alcohol to so some people might be extra annoying because of that little bit of help from us something bubbly out there yeah absolutely and other things but yeah absolutely that's the bubbly definitely makes it so people that death that you know keep quiet mind their own business watch their piecing cues and then they get a little step of you know the eggnog was something extra in it and all the sudden you're like what who was that who's who just said that yeah you know I guess people is there some of us are stronger than others I don't know and sometimes we can be our best classy yourself but then those people around us whether they again co workers or family they know how to push our buttons and there comes a time when you need to put your foot down but how do we do that at Christmas when everyone is around and maybe if if there are certain people in your life that are so bad to be around want to know is it okay to to cut them off altogether is that just being mean and ugly now absolutely it's actually here to think about it like this how mean and ugly do you want to be to yourself yeah to your family to your spouse that maybe at or your your your your girlfriend boyfriend partner whatever that you're at these events with you know that year would sit and smile through some horrific thing that's been said you don't want to cause harm to another person who may be struggling and that's why they're lashing out but there are ways to handle people to where you definitely say here's a boundary this is my line in the sand and you're not crossing it without you know wounding them to where they go home and and then they have more issues because then they have the shame walk the next day for their behavior how do we tell maybe the host or hostess of the party I'm not gonna make it this year do we say I've got it to work I am traveling for this that or the other or do we just straight up say you know aunt Hilda is going to be there she drives me crazy and here's why and I'm just not going to do it this time your aunt Hilda yeah I mean I think that you have to determine what's okay for you if you're going to punish yourself for missing it overhand and Hilda van Gogh but have things in place like you gonna leave in an hour you have a get away car you have the Batmobile on speed dial which is your friend that's going to show up and get you I mean all of those things that you can leave or yes you know I'm I'm not going to go this year I even said to people that have invited many things and I know they love to play games and I don't and I'm talking about you know party games and I don't like playing games it's a hot bed for toxicity so I tell them ahead of time don't include me in the games and don't try to add me on later if you do I will just walk out and it won't be pretty soon just don't include me in the games also talk to the side and whatever but don't you know try to add me on after I'd said no I mean you can set boundaries like that ahead of time so that people realize she's serious you know I don't know if I can think of some games and boy that is playing with fire especially again there's alcohol involved people are feeling especially loosen faster not so good yeah absolutely and people are letting their guard down and you know you can be in a work environment but then you get someone who is extremely competitive when it comes to games and at work you don't play those kinds of games but you get them in a game of charades and all the sudden they're a nightmare so I just don't even I just don't even go there and I ask people our our animals going to be there because guaranteed I'm gonna spend more time talking to the dog and I and many of the people will there be dogs be involved in on site I love that exactly exactly Kristin I I do love also what you said about it sometimes it's what you can live with and there are a lot of things in life we like so I take a or B. both have this the size the other what can you live with you want you don't want to hurt anybody when you're saying I'm bowing out this year it's just the way it is but you were you know you're gonna beat yourself up later maybe you try to go just this one time and then I I don't know it it really is a decision that you have to make yourself and then be okay with and give yourself the great for that absolutely it goes back to the new year you are you'll and you're the one that has to live inside your head in your heart and if you know that you're going to punish yourself later it you know I I like to pull myself out side of myself and say well what I do if this was a friend and then say okay well I'm the friend I'm the best friend I'm gonna have to me so how am I gonna feel later about this particular situation and if I know Mike sailings okay I'm gonna feel really bad about and it now and the guilt that comes with it so I need to just go to this but put time limits then I'm going to do that for myself because in the long run that'll help me sleep better it's not about one week that I went when I didn't want to it's more you know give yourself the same grace you would get a good friend yeah we have to talk to ourselves like we would talk to our best friend absolutely and I like we say it could just be a matter of time limits and this other thing to go to and then you've already established this is how much I'm going to be around for this long talking to Christmas in on a Walker mental health news radio network she's a CEO in one of the podcasters just a bevy of podcasters on so many topics were gonna bring a right back after the break and talk about you know some of these toxic people one thing that's always so popular on your show Christian the issue of narcissistic people people actually have the personality disorder that goes with it and that how to arrange yourself for that sort of thing back with Kristen.

"christensen" Discussed on Quirks and Quarks

"A new plastic that could be broken down to its molecular molecular building blocks and reconstituted to make pristine new material over and over again doctor christensen welcomed the cartoon quirks it takes me about now i mentioned you're latest research comes from existing problems booms with plastic cam which is really a necessary part of her life but before we get into you're solution what you see is the big problems with plastic especially when it comes to recycling i mean there are a number of problems i think it'd be dark cultural problems you know how a society is trained to think of objects in general are both with respect to how it's used in what you do with that object when you're when you're done with it 'em there are major problems with a infrastructure globally billy and by infrastructure i mean you know be the way that you can discarded object of it it's handled appropriately this could be you know your recycling bin at home or you know a container at a at a store that allows you to you know drop drop off your laptop drop off your shoes and then there's what happens in between how do you how do you transport those object a to a facility 'em that hopefully has the right type of equipment to very quickly and very easily take things apart and then sort of a different materials into different streams and then on the back end you have to have the right materials that that make up those product that can ideally be recycled over and over again it's kind of this whole system approaches system problem that the materials are kind of a very small part in but but that's what i focus on now one of the problems with a plastic insolvent i think most people think well plassey just melted down and reform it and make something else turn your shoes into computer monitor something what's the problem without him plastics in general are not just one thing you always have this problem of of mixed materials and even small fraction of a percent of color or additive flame retardant could make be recycled material have a significantly lower value in terms of how you could revisit a to make new products the second biggest issue is that the process we used to recycled plastics and by that i mean grinding up old plastic and melting down and turning it into a new shaped actually chemically degrades the material and for that reason you could only often used a certain percentage and that percentages typically very low of recycled plastic in new product so what are you doing to try to get around this problem and you introduction you you talked about building a new building block to make plastics and that's the perfect way to think about this and.
