"Next to him and learn so much from him through all of it. The low i think would definitely be. It's been it's been difficult being far away from my family and all of our friends back home in texas we really created a really amazing community of friends and anna broncos am i family were all super close. I will never lived more than like two and a half hours away from my mom and dad. So you know going from having a huge network of family and friends serena onto not knowing anybody. That was really hard. And it's taken the we've been living here now for almost four years. I'd say it's taken about four years to really feel like drained goes home just because we had such such deep roots in texas and still do those roots are always there. Yeah good you've been able to stay connected. Oh yeah oh yeah yeah. What about you travel. I would definitely echo katie. It wasn't really part of the original plan that she would be working time in the dealership like we knew we're going into this as coronas and but but being there fulltime was not was not the original business plan after about six months. I just realized i was talking. I just couldn't. I was working fourteen hours a day. And she said. I'm a mike alongside you and really roll up my sleeves and dive into the day to day stuff and it could and probably one of two ways and we've been really really blessed now of course we still have her days but it's been so neat to watch her grow in her. Competence is a leader and everything. And also i just getting into serve our team. Our customers absolutely amazing in their high would be our second full year in business. We came in and out of six hundred plus dealers in the country by harley. Davidson motor company's were our reiterate seventh in the country in two thousand nineteen and then just seeing the growth of our our our chambers and seeing them go personally professionally and being a part. I mean we've almost doubled the revenue in in three full years of business from where he bought the dealership to where it is today. Like we we pretty much doubled. The top line revenue. And it's been you know it's been awesome journey and i think the low is. I didn't have as as tight of a family network and and you know. I love my mom and dad. I mean just amazing amazing capable. We weren't we weren't as close knit as katie was with her family. And so you know for me. I think the low is. I totally respect and appreciate how much she misses her family. And mrs that closeness in So just wishing you know. Wishing that i could i could close that gap a katie wasn't so far from her family. Would having her so far from her family would be kind of low. What what would you guys say. Two other couples that are considering going in business together. Because like you said it could've gone one of two ways not for everybody. What are some of the questions that you guys worked through in coming to. That decision even talked about it was survival. You know it really was is like wait. We've got okay. We're gonna to take both of us. And i think any advice i'd give other couples are thinking about going into business together or is making sure that you know that they're their friends to you. Know your life partner here and you share and the responsibility is their life and raising kids and stuff. But i think having a friendship is really important because it unites creates the trust and the respect. Our you know. I have the utmost respect for cover because of one his knowledge of the business. You know he's already been with harley davidson for so many years. So when i joined on i knew that i definitely not the expert here so knowing to take my shoes and my leadership from him order to do while myself so. I think it's important to have that friendship and respect mutual respect for each other and also know when you need to leave the office and close the door in their termini. you know. They're definitely days. Where one of us is not in the best mood and there might be some high level things drama going on or whatever and i just noticed they out of his office on those as you know whatever. We gotta discuss what happened later. You know. it's we try to really separate organ home Which is we can accept at three o'clock when the kids get out of school and they usually end up coming back to work with me then. It's a big family of lay around. But yeah no i i. I agree with everything she said you know having boundaries. I think that's important that in it's impossible to keep keep it from crossing over but you know when you're at home trying to focus on on home and the the marriage and the kids and and that and not always bringing work home with you or or even bringing your home life to work in china keep kind of keep those a little bit separate There's no perfect equation for that. But one thing is mixture. You know each other you know katie and i. We've been to some rough times in our marriage before we moved up here and we had you know we had a few years of really kind of working things out and like really getting to know who we were deep down without like all the stuff on the surface and you know having that friendship that katie mentioned understanding each other's boundaries and just even the level of respect that made it blows me away. Katie comes to every one of our meetings. We have a weekly owners meeting in comes with an agenda. Like i might. China told the rest of my managers are mike. Why can't she's the one person that doesn't have to come with an agenda but she comes prepared and is always really respectful of our time. And we've got a big note on our twenty twenty one meeting agenda template that says works not not home or something that were not personal to make sure when we're talking about work and it always happens always bring something in about a. What about the kids ski class this weekend. But the reason for that is is unknown. That that rule. Because i'm not there. Fulltime might trevor's nine if our rene i've never about eight to two thirty is when the kids get out of school. That's we go do all the kids staff you know. They signed Ski team some the hours that i'm in the office are so crucial so I try to not talk about home stuff. Unless it's really something pressing and important. I need to focus on work on there. I don't fall behind and so and the gender thing. I'm just a taipei. I so i can't help that. He understands that and he's also a super great helper with the kid. Everything outside of work. To and i think that's you know that's important. Things is as well if you're going to hear husband and wife and you're going to work together eating to share the responsibilities outside of work to whereas when i was when i was staying at home with my kids. Yeah yeah i- dinner cleaned the kitchen. I i took care of those home. Home responsibilities insurer helped but it was mostly me but now we really are a team. So if i cook dinner he cleans dishes. you know. We both shared laundry. And we do all of that. And i can't tell you what that's done My love language is service so when he does those i mean it says the huge is just..

And so what are your current job descriptions. Well so about three and a half years ago. We purchased the wrangle harley davidson dealership. Here during the colorado and our current job descriptions katie is our oversees our marketing and our retail side of all the different merchandise and stuff that we sell on the retail side of the shop. And then i'm the acting general manager for the dealership so the motorcycle cells eboni counting service and parts kind of falls under under my umbrella marketing. Pr and merchandise. That katy helps lead. And the recy- okay great. We're gonna get into much more of this story in a minute but awesome thank you. I wanna do a couple of fun. Get to know you exercises. If your marriage was a team sport what would it be Well i would think. Maybe i'd have to say baseball church. Dicate i think and they came based on. You don't have to have the same. Why i think if the game of baseball you know we've been doing a few curve balls in life no doubt and you know we've we've hit some things way out in the left field you know you just don't know what's up. Yeah also to do all of that. You know we still finished the game and still still work together as a team. So i'd say i'd which is my favorite sport anyway so it works out very good. What is the others superpower. What do you think. Trevor love for. Christ is is really her superpower. Her desired always be going in our faith to be sharing her face with other people. You know when when her. I've met that was a big part of my life that didn't really exist and do our journey and i know we're getting into this later but katie was a big part of as an adult bringing christ back in our life and Then together we've made sure that he say the center of our our family and our marriage but You know her her love. Maybe a more broad just general katie is as she's got an incredible way of loving people and And her love for christ is really the super power. That stands out to be very nicely. I change my now. Let's see trevor's superpower to me. I really think it's his ability to connect with people he Being in business with him and even before we were together. i've always admired. How he can just walk to a stranger and strike up a conversation and connection to anyone just by means of small talk and just starting conversations. And i think that's why he's done so well in business is because he's he's got a great ability to to listen and also be heard but really connect with others. And it's it's i would learn so much from him because that's not an easy thing for me to do it all and so he's a yeah i think for him and his not only career but just in his everyday life you know. He's able to really connect with people and just find a way to see what the other needs wants to kind of connecting go from there. So i admire that about him a lot. So would you say yeller. Moore's similar or opposites. i think we're alex is wouldn't you agree. Yeah we're definitely different crystal without be. That'll be fun to unpack because that keeps it exciting. Right shan always something to learn. Okay i have a series of rapid fire questions in katie. I pulled this from your facebook. Something you had reposted. Yeah uh-huh okay so this has to do with your relationship. Who was interested. I think maybe me she. She took the initiative to kind of like really spark up the conversation. But i still. I still remember the very first time i ever saw her. Get out of that red mustang in the park motor city harley. David said you know. And i was. I was in the season of life for a really gotten of a a really bad engagement and was not looking for for anything but you know. Katie definitely caught my eye and i said wow. There's something something special about that girl but so chaotic may think the attraction was there for both of us by. I initiated initiated. It you go girl. Who's who's the most sensitive trevor. Sure i'll took terror mccain has the worst temper maybe me. We both kind of temper. My red line is way out there. Like i got a lot more views as longer than mine so i snapped before he was Cracks the temporary. You know it's bad. But katie made me on shorter time level unless patients.

Blew about seventy miles an hour through cheyenne. But i mean it's it's just it. It really did make a big difference. And i do want to.

And and i know. He's very influential and big into the fishing businesses. Well but can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen but also you know kind of raising them during that time that you know you're just so busy and you got all these things on with the with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on. How did you manage all those things and still make it a great experience for your kids. They grew up in the business. they did. There's not all all seven right here except in children. I've got two boys all of the kids. even girls. Three of his kids are girls. They all served in the business wing. Some of your friends. At the time we started lindy dako copier reports sinkers learning advertised snow. Rapper mind cars. Were exposed to the business is a family run. I mean all their life you know and they grew up in many different fields yet. You know it other things. But-but-but number stayed in the business in our in the business today like jim. dna billing and mesa troy. Yeah you know and and my daughter niece who worked as a pr rest. For many many years fishermen still welts me A right right material and press releases and things like that you with the gifted in that area but they grew up in the business thing. Yeah and and that way you were able to spend time together so they understood it. They understand the crab and the things that this life style. If you went to make a living a good comfortable living in deficient indiscreet. I don't hurt my myself and i know many people that you and i do not that then ended the business row ripley. Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family. A number of where we fished in tournaments in canada Rainy lake in minnesota canadian border. Another one at nor tap happened awake to work and we fish team tournaments up there and over the years that we hit fished at is a group together ranch fish with one of his sons.

Two of back in those weeks the week caprice fishing leading into that terminated. That was the week muster sunday for fifteen years. Yeah you know it was the highlights of of our trip together with all of us as a family together and each one bus us. Everyone about when i talk to the boys inclusive of troy. Now he says that was some of the most enjoyable experiences we ever had and all of us at weren't time and other did really good way.

Maybe it was. It was jackie gigantic for bike. That was half water. Fish birds played beat of ball. That would be. That would be a lot of fun. I now i'm like. Wow that sounds like a blast. But i wanted to change gears just a little bit One of the things that have admired you for years is that you're not afraid to talk about your faith and i think that that's very important thing and you know i want to see if he can share just a little bit about your spiritual journey and how god is played a big role in your life after the two most important parts of my life. The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it.

He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point.

WNBA players celebrate Warnock's projected win over Loeffler
"Right. Before the insurrection at the capital there was two senate runoff elections that the country had their is on in one of them. The reverend raphael warnock defeated the incumbent. Appointed senator kelly leffler in georgia. Kelly leffler for about ten years has been a partial owner of the atlanta dream of the wnba. She's now the majority owner but she's been around the team for now ten or eleven years and you may have heard her own players and much of the wnba is diametrically opposed to everything that leffler stands force. It was a very interesting situation to see everything develop earlier this week. And then how it works in the team dynamic for more on that. Let's welcome and renee. Montgomery actually a guard for the atlanta dream. She joins us this morning. She's actually rejoining us this morning a second time. She's been on with this. Good morning to you so i guess the first thing i gotta ask you is being a member of the team and understanding everything. That's going on on the floor in off the floor. What's the reaction of you and your teammates to misled losing this election. So i'm just gonna speak for myself and the reaction is. It's not even just her losing. Its rafael worn off. One and i wanna make sure that the messaging stays clear because there's some things that happened on january six is trying to take away from the fact that a black man is going to send it a jewish man from georgia's going to send it and we won the presidential race so i would say for me. It's a sweep. it's a three no sleep. So the the the feeling is happy. Rene speaking of january six. What are your thoughts on everything that occurred that day. Yeah you know. It's kinda like we all felt something was gonna happen. I was worried after november. Third ominously like when when the number started tied and we could see that joe biden. Really my win this thing you know. We all started to get a little nervous even here in georgia the aquarium shutdown coach color. They all boarded up their their buildings because we were all expecting some type of reaction and not a good one so then to see what happened on january six and see the lack of policing that was there it was it was disappointing and most call a spade a spade. It was terrorism. Domestic terrorism is the term that we should use for that renee montgomery innately. Sorry thanksgiving i was going to say what is say about the platform that the wnba has like you guys like even a month before. Colin kaepernick took a knee in two thousand sixteen. The wnba pre-game conference about police brutality. You guys were black. Lives matters t shirts before it was even a thing. Guys always been the leader at the forefront say about the platform that you guys have in the work that you guys have been doing you know. I hope people start to licking because a lot of brands. A lot of sponsors. They don't see the value in in women would say 'cause you know. I think i saw a tweet. From china robinson that said of sponsorship for women athletics how chow especially now knowing the impact that a women's league not just so a player but a whole week and have i don't understand why there's no interest but i do hope that just seeing how things transpired and how everyone to see what's going on. I hope that there is some value added to women now. Renee montgomery of the atlanta dream is joining us. This morning on keyshawn jay williams zubin were presented by progressive. Insurance and rene is with us on the goodyear hotline to robinson by the way. Espn women's college basketball analyst shaina. Yes shoutout. I want to ask you this because people may not want to go back to leffler because i think this is just so fascinating with how clear she's been in how clear you guys have been She used to be for people. That aren't aware that maybe don't follow the dream on everyday basis. She used to be a constant present. at games. a practice you'd be a team functions. He was always be sitting in the front row. She was very active owner. Obviously things have changed when she went to the senate got other responsibilities. I just wonder what your relationship is with her. The team's relationship with her you know even before the senator race i would just fear before the games. We've been to her house. Where team function. But i mean any of the players know you're not usually best friends with owner in general you know you typically would talk more to your g Even when it comes to contracts and stuff so we did see her there and we would wait and she was you know. I know that she released herself. From you. know day to day duties as she became a senator but she was president and the wnba. I know probably the letter was her trying to distance herself. Thing is how she's republican and the wnba. Is you know highly majority. Lgbt in black and brown community. So i can understand why she's trying to distance ourselves but it wasn't the case beforehand. Rene we're kind of personal discussions if any at all have you had. We'll often about social justice nine. I'm you know this was a typical owner-player relationship. So you know. I never talked to my minnesota on her about social justice. And i know that this time is is different but by the time that all of these things try Started to unfold. You know it was already. She was already too far. gone by. then how do you feel now that everything is transpired and she still co owner of the team for me and this is gonna be unpopular to say but for me. I'm sure she's not the only owner. That probably feels the way she feels. And so i hope that the wnba and hope that you know even her you know i. I've already posed the question. I don't know why he would want to own a wnba team. If you have to write a letter to the commissioner opposing. Everything that that team is standing for you know. Our team is the atlanta dream. And i don't know if people know that's from martin. Luther king's dream speech. That's how we got our name so if you oppose everything that we fundamentally stand for. I don't see how you can build a relationship there. I don't know why you'd want to be there

"It was a ninety one year old subscription newspaper that had never missed a thursday publishing through two world wars famine and fires floods. Great depression like you know. People read this paper. Religiously my town. I've never missed an issue of this paper. So i thought that'd be a fun thing to do. It's not going to move the needle. It's not gonna make a lot of money but this be really neat and we did it and we solve the murdering her first year. We won a some incredible prizes. Did all this great stuff. It was so much fun. It also kind of speaks to me kind of kind of like to challenge authority and keep an eye on things. And i don't believe a lot of things quite cynical and so we we found this kind of bernie madoff guy in town and random out of town and that's really appeal to me and and we still have the paper. It's the most fun i've ever had losing money but it doesn't lose a lot of money so it was one of those one of those things and going back to work. For the first couple of years. I was there everyday. It was sort of reorganizing the paper. And how we gonna make sustainable with the internet and this kind of stuff will as we finish up one of the key components to successes mentorship and asking for help and my big people. At the time what was the thing. That was the catalyst. How could you lose all that money. Said i didn't ask for help. I was listening to everyone around me. Tell me how. Smart and great midas like i was in i started to believe all the yes. People steam hurts that great book right. Don't take yes for an answer. That's all i took for answers going. My wife and i was miserable. you know. unfortunately. I didn't ask help when i was miserable. You know by. I was said i thought therapists were stupid in too expensive now have over one hundred million dollars in a golf courses ski mountain. I got thirty. Three homes in san diego. And i'm worried about paying a therapist to deal with tobacco miserable and everyone thinks i'm the lucky. I'm running the most notable sports agency in the world with all these three daughters under ten gorgeous healthy daughters. An unbelievable why. I'm out kick my coverage and i'm sitting there crying in bed depressed and not asking for help and instead go through a lot of people do self sabotaging not paying attention you know my wife save. Save me was the help that i needed to rebound for. You was there in eagle play about asking for help or were you always open to deal asking for help and being humble in that manner. Because i wasn't no so that's a great point I think the difference between really great entrepreneurs and really successful people is that they learned that lesson early. Very few people i think. Have that naturally but uh oh my god. I'm so embarrassed by some of my conduct in my early twenties and way autism people because it was like i made a couple of million bucks on six months at school. I'm so Eight look at me. i'm so smart. I mean way. The way i conducted meetings and certain things and so now i read about silicon valley guys. You know and i feel. I can't feel sympathy for some of them. Because it's like they have so much success there told that they're such geniuses at such a young age and now the complete opposite like no. I don't understand. i'm so dumb..

I think in the world exactly the number one team in baseball and they proved it after. Twenty years allen's linski. He is the entrepreneur and one of the owners of the los angeles dodgers. Welcome do the playbook. Thank you very much for having me. I love that intro. I agree it's the number one sports team in the world. So thank you for that. I'm from southern california. Many friends and clients have played for your organization in is stellar from the top down from ownership down in has been historically that way. So it's even if it's not the team itself that you root for the organization is extraordinary. Now i wanna take us back because everybody dreams. That can't play of owning a team. You guys want to be The general manager. But i'm always wanted to be an owner. I've been blessed to have a small portion knobs in in different sports to me an owner and even a commissioner. But when you're young what was your aspiration. As far as sports went yes. So i grew up in an immigrant family and both my parents immigrants from argentina but they fully embraced america and really assimilated quickly and had us playing every single sport so i played football baseball basketball soccer tennis. Anything with the ball. And i was really competitive so i think probably until about well. Yeah deal is. Oh i could play to the dodgers. I could play for the lakers. I'm the man at the school yard. You know some. Maybe when i started high school i went to a large high school. Three thousand people Incredible sports put people in the nba and the nfl and a few mlb and quick. I realized there okay. That's not going to happen. But so from that point forward i would always watch that trophy ceremony. And you'd sort of see that shorter died balled and little outta shape. And he's like half in that in the seeing what the big show and i was like. Who's that guy. Maybe i could do that. Because i like numbers. I like math. i like him. He looks good and his wife. Looks beautiful you know. The family looks great. Only be that guy. So i think that was always in the back of my head you know and you ended up going to usc. Don't you didn't play sports at usc. Now no way these study you studied music music so I my family to go to college. And i didn't have a phenomenal social experience that. Us wasn't in a fraternity or shorty system. And so i wasn't the most popular guy and my freshman dorms. I started a business. So i was working so hard on this business and not loving the college experience to begin with but dropping out wasn't really an option because no one had ever had the opportunity to go to college so it was like your needed to do this and so i switched from business to music because i'd always loved music. I play piano and it was much easier. Major to get through than business and also business was so theoretical. It was like that scene from back to school. Dangerfield this professor up there talking about all this theoretical garbage it. Just you know classroom of eight hundred people. It didn't make any sense all everybody's like one out of two freshmen. Were business majors at. Usc not always bugged me. Made no sense.

Farmers Got A Government Bailout In 2020, Even Those Who Didn't Need It
"Back in the spring. Farmers who raise pigs were in panic. Some of their usual customers restaurants weren't buying prices had collapsed. Some hog farmers had no place to ship their animals because workers in pork processing plants. Were getting sick. This is just a grave situation on hot launch. This is nick. Giordano a top lobbyist for the national pork producers council in may on a call with reporters unless there is a large cash infusion from the federal government. We're going to lose a lot of producers lots of different farmers demanded government aid and congress provided thirty five billion dollars in emergency aid to farmers on top of regular farm subsidies which amounted to about ten billion dollars a year. Money went to hog farms but also people raising cattle corn and soybeans fruits and vegetables. Dairy farmers. Joe glauber an economist. At the international food policy research institute had trouble keeping up with at all. You almost lose track of of how much money is going out. Clobber used to be the chief economist at the us department of agriculture. And he finds it a little disturbing because by the time. Farmers got a bunch of those payments in the summer and fall. The problems were going away. Commodity prices have come back up and actually looking better than they've looked in several years. According to usda estimates total farm income this year without that emergency aid would have been about average with the government payments. Twenty twenty looks like it'll be the fifth highest year for farm income in the past forty five years. I think there is a fundamental question at that point. You say well. Why are we providing all this additional aid especially since farmers group are relatively wealthy while millions of other americans are wondering how they will ford groceries. I called up some farmers and got several different answers. Chad lehman is co owner of hog farm in illinois that got more than seven hundred thousand dollars in government payments in twenty twenty according to usda data obtained by the environmental working group which is critic of farm subsidies. Lehman says it's really not much for as big as his. He ran up against a cap on government payments to any single individual or farm. So didn't come close to covering his losses. None of us expect to be made whole but are asked was hey help us get to next year without that money. You don't think you would have made it to next year. What think you would have seen significant fallout from the pork. Industry significant fallout but farmers didn't have to prove that they needed help. They simply got paid based on their previous production of green or pigs or cattle the more crops. They grew the more government. Money they got up to that cap ron roseman farmer in western iowa says his neighbors sometimes made jokes about it. You know all these farmers were getting together and playing cards. These older farmers. I heard one guy say yep got another check from the government today. Didn't need it but boy. Yeah i don't know what to do with it. Roseman got some of money himself and yet i'm not in favor of an overall because it has Disproportionately gone to the largest producers which means those large farmers now have more money to outbid their smaller neighbors when land comes up for rent or for sale and when small farms eventually give up means fewer people in rural communities less life in small towns. We just continue to fight declining and aging population out here. It's a paradoxical result. Rosement says but passing out money to farmers this way can actually hurt farming communities and more money is now on the way. The latest coronavirus relief package contains another eight billion dollars in payments to farmers. Dan charles npr news.

Well, just by virtue of the business, there's not a lot of social distancing court ruling allowed San Diego County restaurants and strip clubs to remain open. A Superior Court judge issued that ruling here. CBS eight out of San Diego captured some sound from an attorney, Jason Said duds. Oh, arguing the case for strip clubs to reopen There has not been a single Kobe case that's traceable back to either the plaintiffs establishments. There's no apparent reason. White people cannot gather for live adult entertainment either indoors or outdoors, but they can shop in indoor malls until they drop. We have big box retail stores, grocery stores, airports, Hollywood production houses, cannabis dispensaries, so money other Activities being allowed, but no live adult entertainment. There's an idea and outdoor strip club, Okay, whatever the country you're in, So apparently, the judge's ruling is a little bit confusing to some. This is Chad Klein. He's the co owner of Waterfront Bar and Grill he was talking about whether or not his restaurant could reopen tonight is not really sure, he says. While the kind of says it, restaurants can reopened, But the caveat there. Maybe that someone has to be stripping. Which seems so wild to me, If that's what it takes for us to reopen our business, taking off our clothes, I'll do it. That's Chad Klein. He's the co owner of the waterfront bar and
Live events industry lost $30B due to pandemic
"Also about the entertainment concert event community because they're also suffering in this environment of no business Pretty much I want to talk to Tim Hutton, He's co owner of the hideout. And you've got some interesting things going on. I won't ask about first. How are you, Tim? How you doing? Hi. I'm doing good. Thanks for having a son. Yeah, I want to get to what you're doing. I just kind of want to just take a pulse. Tell us, you know, I mean, obviously, concerts. Those aren't happening. You know, big events, not happening. Um what? What has the industry been able to do during all this? If anything to get by. How's that going? The 100% closed in the venues that are members of the Chicago Dependent venue League, which we call civil. We're all 100% closed. So you know weird like music venues, So we're not the kind of thing that you congest, do a live show and have a 25% capacity. With us. We're faced five in businesses, which means that like we cannot be open, right? And so what we've been doing since March is, we have all been doing every kind of thing we can. We've been selling T shirts and we've been selling records and we've been selling posters and doing things like that. We can also doing fundraisers. On other things to raise money to keep our venues open. But what we really did in the last eight months is all of US venues around Chicago. We've all known each other for years. We actually have a really great community off music clubs and informally we always all of us would always go to each other's clubs. We knew each other, but we never had kind of a really in organization. And what we've been doing all summer long is we've just been really uniting ourselves into the real Chicago into kind of venue League. So now we have about 34 venues that are all partners. Numbers of Reed and we are before the year is over. We just thought you know what? We can't leave this year without having a festival. And so we've been having this this civilization festival we call it Um, And that's tonight and eight o'clock. It started the day after Thanksgiving, and we've been doing it every Friday night for the last couple of weeks. How cool is that? So it's um, tell me you know how you support it. And who actually how? How you help people through it. So what we're doing is it's it's free. It's live. You just go to civil Chicago dot com and civil is C I the L. Just four letters it stands for Chicago. Independent venue League civil shake, and then the words civil Chicago dot com And if you go there, it will just click you onto the YouTube and then you can watch it for free while you're watching it. What we hope is that you gonna chat room and stuff and you look down below and you'll see that there are links where you can make donations. The donations go to a group that we started with the giving back. But the giving back fund which is called civil safe. And civil save stands for sure. I wouldn't have any weight and save stands for staff Artist Venues, Emergency relief fund and we're just hoping that people will watch the shows will see their bands, though the shows are all filled in our clubs, So you're gonna have an experience that's exactly like if you were in our club. On Ben. If you want to donate you can donate and in the last three weeks in the last two weeks we've raised over $10,000 just, um generous people making donations and that money is going to be distributed.

Minimalist Backpacks With a Cause
"My name is Kelly from Denver Colorado and I'm the CO owner of adventurous backpack company along with my wife Matilda. Adventurous was previously featured on episode five, twenty, two of side-hustle school back in two, thousand and eighteen. Adventurous backpack though we designed minimalist backpacks with a cause for every backpack sold, we provide twenty-five meals to families in need across the US since adventurous backpack. Oh. was featured on the show back in two thousand, eighteen Matilda and I have both transitioned to running the business full time. So now we're we're both a full employees and owners of adventurist before ice wished I was actually working as a real estate agent but also. Directly before I was working as a lift driver and Matilda was a nanny. We've been fortunate enough to get our backpacks into urban outfitters we've been accepted by feeding America into their enterprise. Society. We've expanded our website adventurous two at Cox Dot Com, and we've been forced a enough to have our backpacks featured in outside magazine Forbes Travel Channel Woman's Day pop sugar and more. I would say that as many businesses are experiencing the you know. Setbacks from covid nineteen right now, that's obviously a big factor in a lot of our decisions and options moving forward since a lot of our retail sales to stores, universities and events have slowed way down. Since the pandemic we've chosen to focus on e commerce and direct to consumer sales, which is really the only avenue we have completely in our control and so we've worked a lot on making. Our website adventurous backpacks dot com as a user friendly as possible, and it's actually ended up being kind of a blessing in disguise because we're now learning how to increase their sales online on our website. Since that's the only thing we're able to do you wish will be even better once all the craziness ends and we're able to continue supplying retail stores in universities with that accident as well. There there are always. Downsides to owning a business with all the freedom that it allows like being able to create your own schedule, go out and hikes and take photos and do something different every day there's also the pressure to to make money because it's a business and if you don't sell your product and you're not able to make money than. Going to be able to grow or continue, and so there's there's definitely a fair amount of stress. You know you try to find ways to cope with the stress but. It definitely can be their state. You have like a slow week of selling backpacks. We can be like, oh no what's what's happening is the you know you can have a tendency to almost overreact, but the truth is as long as you don't panic and you kind of just put in the the work necessary. Even if things are slow at the beginning or even if something goes wrong, there's always a way to overcome that and continue doing what you're doing to make to make it would. Thanks so much Kelly thanks as well to Matilda. The adventurous backpacks team. Now, listeners I always want to encourage you do the thing that is available to you. Win. An obstacle presents itself. Sometimes you can choose to attack it head on or you can say, okay, this is a pretty big obstacle such as cove. Nineteen. And this is affecting my main strategy or it's affecting a lot of what I could do. Let's say a lot of things are outside my control. So what can I do instead? And for the backpack team like focusing on retail stores wasn't a great strategy for twenty twenty they began with with trying to build more retail wholesale relationships, etc. But then obviously, it became quite apparent that that wasn't going to work so well for most of this year. So they changed it up and began paying more attention to their ECOMMERCE model. Now in the future retail may become more important again but the time and attention that they have focused on ecommerce only help them then. So do the thing that is available to you. That's my encouragement to you into myself as well. I. Think there's always a good thing to think about when you're stuck when you encounter obstacles, what can I do now? So much is out of our control what can I do? That is within my control.

Step into fill Matt's shoes which are big shoes to fill in. More than happy to do so.
Laura Jackson Of Towpath shares Her Roast Chicken Recipe
"Name is Laura. Jackson I'M The, head chef and CO owner of Towpath, which is on the regent's canal in East London. And I'd like to share one of my favorite recipes with today, which is race chicken. Obviously. A very, very simple recipe but I think one that is quite hard to pull off properly and. Rest of chickens in my life. So I think by now I think got the recipe down to T. it's a great one to cook at home because it is so simple and it's a crowd pleaser suits quick to prepare, and the reason I chose this recipe is because while one is totally delicious but. For me my sort of philosophy and the way I love to cook is not anything and the great thing about roast chicken is once you've served the chicken, you can then make a stock with the caucus. which you to make lots of different stews and soups and broths, and then there's also tends to be quite a lot of meet the you miss from carving, which can then be used for another thing. So essentially, you can get three or four dishes from one thing which makes me very, very happy. So all you need to do is get roast chicken. Of Asli, I would say, definitely. To get chicken that has had a good life. So free range organic or from a farm where you know that the having a nice time and I used to always roast chickens with butter but then maybe seven or eight years ago I had to give up Daria had some health issues. So I switched to using olive oil and actually feel that it is much better than using butter because the crispiness of the skin, you can take it to another level because. The burning properties of olive oil much lower than butter. So definitely go for olive oil. For Chicken you definitely want one big juicy lemon, and then head of garlic. If you've got some Tarragon, obey leaves to stuff up. It's bumpy can do that as well but that's not huge thing. So really super super simple. What you want to do I get your oven I would say almost as hot as possible. Obviously if you've got very strong oven, I would do it at about kind of t twenty to thirty, and then I would cut the garlic in half and. Stick. It up. It's bomb with some bay leaves. Tarragon if you have. Cut The lemon half squeeze it all the juice out like you can possibly get out and squeeze all over the chicken and again, then put the lemon up. It's bum. It just cooks more evenly if you've got lots of things stuffed up inside it. Then I put lots of pepper and some Odin Sea salt, and then a really really generous gluck of olive oil. Than, just get your hands in just rub it all over. And then pop it in the oven breasts side up an idea between twenty five to thirty five minutes at a super super high heat. Basically, this is the stage where you want the skin to go. Really really crispy. So, anywhere between that time, and then once the skin is super crispy, you want to turn the heat down really really low. So I turn it down to about one forty, one fifty. And then Cook it for another twenty five to thirty five minutes. So total, you want to cook the chicken for an hour. So if it's super high for twenty five, then you delay for thirty five. Vice Versa and then you basically take out I. don't based or touch it during its cooking and let it rest for a good twenty minutes to half an hour and then it's good to go.

Week for do I have to play Ronald Jones over? Thank you for the email Jack and I'll tell you this right now new information since this email came in Leonard fournette wage is out this week. So it is Ronald Jones is backfield in Tampa. It's so weird. You know, we're week for we're talking about like playing McKinnon and Ronald Jones who thought we were going to be asking that question when the season started no one else but this is the situation we're facing fairly. Are you going to play Jerick McKinnon this week for the 49ers who is taking on the Eagles at home? Or you could play Ronald Jones for Tom Brady's Buccaneers? Who hosts the Chargers? Which one are you playing? I like both these players, but I have them both on my roster. I'm going to start McKennon cuz I like him a little more, but I'm going to flex Jose. And if I can you'll bulky I'm a big believer in next man up football, you know, the guys Ryan and Adam who were with us. They talked about the Detroit Lions and God bless the Detroit Lions fans. They said they put up with the Detroit Lions front office for all these years. Here's an organization that we hear a lot about Swift and Johnson at running back and when Adrian Peterson becomes available, that's who they go ahead and start but that's not what's going on in Tampa. That's not what's going on in in San Francisco these organizations and next man up at running back. These are very very good players Jones and McKenna with both very successful and you know the coach the the coaches and these two clubs San Francisco and Tampa very, very different and you know Bruce is Big players coach and he gives a real huge. I think Ron Jones is favoritism. And so I think he's got a chance to become a favor wage. Radius of the few it's quarterback in the coast like it. You can big big game and just it looks like everything is pointing in that direction for Ronald Jones So, my answer is McKinney a little bit more money Jones should be in your lineup date. If I if I had the choice between the two it's going to be McKinnon. I did not pick up McKinnon off waivers Northern that draft terminal. I don't really have many shows McKenna. I have a lot of shares of Ronald Jones because of the destruction of running back so far this season. I am forced to play Ronald Jones this week. I'm more leaks than I like to but I'll tell you what after it was announced in for Nets out. I don't really have a problem with Ronald Jones Is a flash even as you're a second running back this week.

"The customer has all the answers. Let you really need to do is go talk to your customer. find out what they need. Or they think they need then extrapolated into where they're going SP skater with puck is going to be Henry. Ford say they asked if he has his customers what they wanted they would have said faster horses but he extrapolating put into a manufacturing line and cars to same thing on his on the business business side. You gotTa look at needs. I believe we always get rewarded in direct proportion to the needs. We feel so fine. A big need out there and the provided that's the business as a side of it on the other side. Happiness is the key to happiness is learning to love ourselves and being our own best friend in once we get their that everything else flows from that in order to do that. We all come to this world today where were sitting with warts with insecurities ladies with all sorts of problems. So what's we accept who we really are and love herself through who we are and not try and do a be for other people not try and be successful for other people or please other people whether it's our father or somebody else but once we look inside and realize all of our answer insight and start pleasing yourself and become our own best friend then everything else flows from that and just verbalizing that and talking talking with Charlie and bringing it out which is really elevated. Though I might have known inside it really helped me to understand that and beware that bringing that clarity one of the issues with success in happiness is money even when you were describing what young people go through today. One of the first things that are stressing them out. Is these these huge loans debt for an education that's antiquated In its institutional formatting now compared to what our economy's doing and will to that end I love to hear your photos your philosophy about how is money related to happiness in in your in your perspective you know. Let me start with money okay. My father gave me a great lesson. We were starting to build his company and had worked with him for five. Here's what he came. He was originally appliance business but we started the first company Guidos. which is the Italian Isis? He came and worked fulltime he. My mom is okay. You blind your parents to yeah. I couldn't afford a bookkeeper people. The love being there honest and really good at magic but I would always focus on certain certain things in and listen and I played basketball in college for year. Big Sports back when those short white Jews guys can play basketball by the way might have anybody that bitty starting some bread this is. How many three point is did you have in college and I say well you can have a three point line that he says you're so old three point line? That's anyway but the issues that building a championship chip successful business is like building a championship basketball team. If you stand the half court dribble look at the scoreboard and never changes. If you look at the Basque ask you put the ball and basket score. GOES UP BY ITSELF SO in business. Okay putting the ball in the basket is finding a customer need assassin. Okay okay. That's really the number one. Our customers have all of our answers. We all know anything people would ask me what I thought the customer as you pretend the customer has the money give them what they wanted to give money back. So just F- find out what the customer wants concerts in both of my business. I actually have. I have five values. I live by both personally and in business. And they've held me in good stead and the first ones to exceed customer expectations and when we exceed customer expectations we have defined it first. We have to know what the customer what's and give them more than they expect. The second which is the most difficult is live up to our commitments. Okay if you can live up all your commitments your customer take you wherever they go. And that's a person's life too when my daughter is sun her soccer game and I say be there and also I got conference call. They didn't WanNa know if I committed to be there. Your third is to be the best with that means. Don't have your boss. I don't look at history. took to give yourself goals. Don't compare yourself to history compares of. What's the best? How do you raise the Bar Yourself? How do you be the best? You're right yeah. Fourth is to do the right thing which which is really hard when no one's watching when no one's watching okay. We all have a gut instinct that tells us right from wrong is not always to our best advantage to do that by always always employed people at work due to the come to work out for you. Yeah I would say it may not be in the short term but the truth vibrates the fastest so long run. If you put faith in in your future do the right thing. And therefore and the most golden rule and the most important treat everybody with care respect. You don't know if there's mother's Diet. Hello what's going on their life but there is no place to raise your voice to yell to be. I mean we're all equals. I don't care if your sanitation guy presently of of a company okay. We're all equals so treat everybody with care respect and if you live with those five things you people love you. They'll be around you and that itself will breed success by yourself as we come to a close here one of the things. Is You have millennials as kids. I find them to be sensitive. And you talk about A difference of caring and raising your voice but the construct of what I speak about a lot of times times is is very straightforward and it's constructive in the nature that I I really want to empower people especially my own children. We are. Loaded with millennials. Here my the goal is to impact them so they impact. Elevate them so they elevate others. That's truly my life's mission. One of the difficulties that that I have is that sometimes times I feel as if although I'm being completely in my intent to be loving and supportive and elevate the content in which a half to discuss us is of constructive nature and I feel as if sometimes it diminishes my capacity as a leader. Not even that I'm yelling anymore. You know like the old football days your old basketball all days if these coaches they could not run for Supreme Court for what they did to US guarantee it. How best do you think after writing the book? Which Arlene Raising Brat can you? You communicate constructive criticism to a millennial so that it doesn't hurt their feelings. Well I also have the Maxi. Don't leave aside but I would say I mentor young entrepreneurs okay ideal them and the way I find the best way to motivate them is to ask them questions so even even when I have the answer I know I've got to ask them questions and bring them along to make it their ideas. They have to learn thinking process of how to get there if if I give him an answer when they leave they'll have okay right so the real issue is for the young people it is. How do you ask right questions how they get their own values? WHO's had they understand the process of come to it? I think the biggest thing in decision making really is I try say that the real critical thing is establishment. What's the criteria people make decisions trying to make decisions without knowing the criteria if you defy what your criteria for decision the path becomes evident? WBZ which is which nobody really not no way. Few people spend the time and it's not hard and we're going through now my son. He's looking to change. I said what's your criteria Tirrenia Reich. I it's it's a challenging opportunity but in young people is they have to understand you. They can't everything today. Okay it's a process but find something you love to do. I say Find Passion. Follow it and if you don't have a passion you could follow find someone else with the same values to has a passion. Go go work with them. Because you'll be an passion environment and be the other passionate people will break off and go find something else and you can go with them perfectly last question. Both of us are happiness. People gratitude people are we share so many philosophies people think this entire playbook has been set up going when he'd come on this can't be unreal. But you do you prescribe and live and if executed even far beyond what. I'm trying to help others. Do you write poetry. I would love to know your favorite inspiring poem for happiness. And if there's a passage you could read or recite or when when mind you have your book here to whatever ever organised at least the title to my favorite poem about happiness is one I wrote in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine a long time ago and it's called eternal happiness and it goes like this our lifetimes paso swiftly in the search for what is real it often takes another heart to know what we can feel and though loves bond with friendship is the strongest ever known. It's Inner Peace Lacey Turner happiness we all must discover on her own for love that brings happiness lines with strength knowing. We're sure but what if we awake one day and that love remains no more more our hearts will fill with loneliness and emptiness abound. We will have lost their happiness until another lovers fouled but a happiness with one's own true self not an easy Bonte make allows our hearts to pour out love without the need take and then if we'd be blessed with love found only wished upon a star do we. I begin our journey in search for who we really are. So if we find everlasting love the one fate has meant to be together we will inspire spire him to set our spirits free. But if it's just another love to teach us how to care we each have our own happiness. Inner peace still left share. Wow that said this.

"I know in San Diego alone with safe skin but I'm really here to talk about. We share these great values gratitude being one but I think more than the great values that we I share. It's your perspective of what's important in life and you wrote this book turning crisis into success with your daughter because at first you're going to write it. I think she shared with you. Maybe a different perspective of your own success and brought to realization of how you could really help people besides travel around and speaking all over the world correct correct correct and Dave. Thanks for having me on all the time so tell me exactly what the idea. Originally of the book was well. Originally I had been speaking to a UH and the A. Students at Cornell. UCSD on the common themes of happiness and success. And so I said why travel. Why don't I just write a book so I shared with my daughter Charlie? She saw starting said Daddy. Let me help. You need my help. And she's a great writer. Why why did you think that success us in happiness word issue as far as most people see? Oh the successful people are happy. Those people that aren't successful aren't happy. And I'd love to know your your perspective of worldwide. Choose to speak at your old school and your local school about how to tie happiness with success. Firstly the truth is success arrested not create happiness happiness create success. When you love what you do in who you do with you have a much better chance of being successful and do as you can learn to? I love what you do. I'm a firm believer in my wife. Always says she's so lucky. You've loved everything you've done. I go. Who are the love selling legal research online? I learned learn to love what I do know. I think it's my I think the things I used to tell my kids growing up as if you do not like the way you feel change the way you think nice. I truly believe that you can have spiritual inspiration selling rocks or fowl cay. So the real issue is it's not what you do it who you do with an essence. OCCA- I talk in the book about the pillars her business pillars for happiness and the pillow for happiness. This is learning to love yourself becoming your own best friend and we can get a little more but but with that belief and with that attitude and learning in how to love yourself and then Sherry everything okay has an opportunity be spiritual to be successful things like that. And you brought here the advice of your daughter Charlie and but her perspective of what you should write about was little bit congruent in separate from what you thought kids kids wanted to hear. Well it was originally. I would tell as we went through the process. I would tell her what happened. I started to different businesses from scratch started boarded took public and then sold I one. I sold coca-cola second. One we sold to Kimberly Clark very successful and so as I started writing about it. Yeah I was telling the story and say Daddy. I don't WanNa know what you did. I know how you felt. Would you think what you will learn about how the stories as of what you did and so it became very challenging She really went back forty years but the issues were so different. She says down. She says you're you're very fortunate you lived a privileged life not financially but mentally. You've always had you the classes. Overflowing Yeah Okay always see see. You're lucky you optimistic. She hasn't challenges. She almost died in an accident. She went to some PTSD so she came from another area. So we start talking the happiness and what life was about. We came to the same conclusion but I saw a whole `nother side in fact after we started going through the whole process okay She said Dad. Okay teach me my friends. How did you keep your Bush stability to crisis? And that's the real key. Not Very fortunate. Russian I've been happy a lot. I do a lot of writing poetry. But it's how did you keep your motive stability crisis and in the book we go story Story Story to see all the different crisis. I used to think happy life until I wrote a book but anyway that's a real key I that's really interesting We were discussing. I have three daughters twenty eighteen and fifteen and and so many of their friends are unhappy. They face anxiety and PTSD and all of these things and it's very difficult for me especially when the kids go to college for that first year. which is when my kids all having anxiety They're very very much. Overflowing with optimism. It it was really really difficult and still is. I don't know how to communicate because people like you and I never want. It's natural but to even when it becomes conscious. It's just obvious we'll just change the way you think right like Wayne Dyer said there's no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. Just look at it and find the light find the the Glatt. What's good about about it and go with that and how you best or what in? The Book Communicates Best Of. Hey My life is about lessons meaning crisis my life. There's about lessons. Lessons are gonNA keep on coming till I learn them. Only promise I have those lessons are going to keep on coming. So do I deal with the lessons. I frame it a little differently. But he's saying is it. I think bad things happen to us because there are lessons to learn okay and they keep having to learn. The lesson was real in that lesson other breath things happen so so life is a series of learner. Bad bad things. Choose not things you would choose not to Harangue K. They don't expect it. I know when we started ordering the book I wrote about just came out of college. We started the Talian Isis Business at twelve hundred specific rush. After the first summer we OUTTA MONEY I didn't know anybody. Anybody is literally working twenty hour days five in the morning to one in the morning. Okay I got little depressed that clinically and so I wrote about paragraph two and Charlie says this to me dad stop. I want to read a couple pages. I said sweetheart. The book is about Happiness Success Not Depression and she said Dad. Most of my friends at depressed oppressed. Yes what are you talking about. She said look most of them have mountains of college debt. They're afraid to lose their job or they can't pay the rent and they all fight with the boyfriends friends. Girlfriends okay so teachers. Don't tell me what have so. How'd you try and get island? Would you think how do how do you keep your spirit going things like that. And so so in the book I tell from one Christ next to the next one I felt how I thought and how I got out of it. Is there a consistent. I believe in this continuum tenuous of the conscious subconscious and unconscious continuum of how we build our muscle of emotional Fortitude are there any consistent behaviors. Saviors that you've learned or discussing the book that can allow someone to say okay when a situation occurs that he don't expect one that you may say as bad or awful or tragic if you don't choose you don't choose and I had one of my coaching clients for example whose husband committed suicide and when the sun found out he committed suicide and I tried to tell her her this philosophy. How would you talk someone through that type of crisis of saying okay? Mr Half full you know. How can I not be you depressed when something like that happen? Well firstly you have. I would have lots of compassion. And I don't have the skill set of how counsel them but I would tell you in general when I run into that situation for me is the first step is accepting things. I can't change all crimes have gone through. I sort of fight eight back okay. I try not to act try and respond. I try and step back and once I'm able to accept things that can't change then I folks okay what could I do and it was interesting after an interview trying I had about the book One of the interview said the Charlie. Will you learn and writing the book that that you never knew what surprise you and she said you know my friends and I all think asking for help is a weakness but in say laser gentleman is vice are getting in every single crisis I went through. She said I see that he asked ask for help so he reached out to people he cared about who knew more than him who could help him and they cared enough to help him so he never really got out of a crisis himself but he was able to ask people to help and I now see this such a strength not a weakness. Absolutely you don't have to do yourself both to be successful. It's so funny. Say That because I believe there's two questions we always need to ask one. How can I be of service? How can I provide you value? That's what I'm always looking to do. I but more importantly the more difficult one in the one that has helped me is learning to say. Do you know anyone that can help me. Even brought in these spectrum that we have such huge networks. I love love asking people. Hey you know I'm looking for good place the dino anyone that can help me and that question is changed my life and if you do it often enough exponentially there's going to be such a great great flow into your life in that book you did ask how what was the biggest crisis that you faced and how did you solve it so I would say there's many of them one of them came in but you couldn't make everyone feel so good so hyper successful and everything you do but you had all these graces Mrs Show in one thousand nine hundred ninety We had started a safe skin which latex glove company and we took. We sold the first one. coca-cola we took all that money we put into safe skin and say she was going broke so I was. I got foreclosure. Notice and personal guarantees being called from Malaysia. To me here my a son Brett was three and a half. My Charlie was six months so we tried to get the house other my name but the bottom line is after I accepted the fact that it was there where I said who could help me and I actually ended up. I'm part of a organization called Young Presidents Organization repeal. Why Peel and so I just picked up the the the Nash International Book opened it to Malaysia? Chapter where the factory was picked a name out and called a chairman of one of the banks there and said. Do you know anybody at this bank. That could help me. This is actually no but the white member from price waterhouse. Okay actually the chairman of that bank back long story short. I called him. He took my call right away. He signed L. Nov.. I can help you. But when my partner went in that week to meet with them they give us an extra thirty days days and we ultimately found another bank to replace them. Okay and three years later went public and tenuously we sell it so just for hundreds of millions of dollars by the way for those people don't know safety and look it up Writing the book. He said you're the asked Charlie what her great is less than what what was the greatest lesson that you learned from writing the book That's really I learned that my perspective of happiness is different than everybody else's But a truly took back in the book we talk about two pillars one pillar for business and went pillar for happiness the pillar for business we worked out together Is the lesson skate to where you skate to. Where the PUCK is going to be meaning Wayne Gretzky? When they asked him he a sports writer? Said you're not that big you don't have a hard slapshot yelled slate skate. That fast. How you the best hockey player ever? And he's I don't know I asked the way the puck is going to be and he take that the business..

I if you know somebody knocks on the door. answer it because you never know what's GonNa be behind. You and I love that. That's you know I'm almost a firm believer of saying. Yes to whatever opportunity presents itself even though it doesn't seem ideal because you never know where it's GonNa lead you.

I'm very focused on on Tom. Brass freight and take the next level but beyond is you know a possible exit. You know the right thing happened then that that's always a possibility you know everything's for sale.

"Nine you know I had you know incredible. Mentor and over the years have had incredible entrepreneurial mentors throughout my career that those guys that weren't afraid to say no guys that that understood what a calculated risk was all about you know understanding of the details know that either aid still stinks stinks or or hey. This thing's got real potential. you know don't over think it just jump in but but what gave me the courage if you will to kind of jump out out and start you know sweet spot which my digital marketing and she was you know. I had a front row seat of a company goes from zero to three hundred eighty million dollars. I paid attention took notes and asked a lot of questions and also manage it a lot of different departments. You know managed over the sales department. I was project manager and managed over you know anyway folks and and developers and and like I said a brilliant mind with the owner as far as what he wanted to do what he wanted to call but but he was also nice enough to tell me y you know they've got a service based business and you can go through an automated. You know a lot of the the the the tedious data entry you know work that is that a lot of people wanna do the B. also kind of expensive to begin with an inscription stack bodies around. You're never really going to be successful. and also you know you cover that with and all yeah by the way we want to maintain the quality of life for the people that are with you know you know you take all all those things you know with that and then able to go through manage over multiple departments it takes a year out of why do you run a business. Why understand sales. I understand service. I understand technology and importance of that. you know finance wasn't probably my strongest suit but you know you want. You're in that quick and then go through an opening up a business the two words that will always haunt me as cash flow you don't have that lesson real real bad you know but but at the same time you know. I honestly got to go through and see what took you know again. Go from zero to you know x number one hundred million or seven employees Warner and employees. You know that's an incredible learning experience especially if you do it. It's not like I was there for thirty years years and you know slow and steady won the race I mean we had our foot on the gas and we had it on their hard for you. Know eight years solid it would appeal the mortal man but at the same time you know. I enjoyed it. I loved it. It was it was fast paced with something new every day. You know I appreciate and respect the challenge to where when the opportunity came up to where hey why would I do this. You know obviously I respect back the decision that I made and understood there are ramifications if bales and all of that but at the same time what gave me the confidence was I saw you you know I i. I had a ringside seat for the whole new probably they. Hey we're about halfway through the conversation but I wanted to take the time to talk about my good friends. The sponsor here this special series at Equity Bank. Have you ever noticed that most business bankers seem seem to really understand just one thing banking right and not a lot about business makes sense since most banks built generations ago and now they're often run by caretakers takers not business builders will. It's not the case here at Equity Bank. The bankers at Equity Bank didn't inherit a bank generations ago. They built one of their own one. They know that building something takes expertise vision in hard worked in over the past decade they've built one of the region's fastest-growing banks by working side by side with customers with entrepreneurs with leaders in communities all throughout Kansas Missouri Arkansas and Oklahoma recently Equity Bank was listed on the Nasdaq has that could change which gives them even greater capabilities to take on those big deals that growing businesses need to keep on growing so if you're tired of talking to bankers he's who've never really ran or owned or built a business and I think you're going to be pleasantly surprised. When you talk to my friends at Equity Bank. Thanks for listening to this show. Let's get get back to the conversation this unique special series on leadership and entrepreneurship brought to you by my friends at all the great leaders all the great entrepreneurs the leader. I WANNA strive to be when I look in. Even I look at my modicum success that I've had in my life same thing. When I got laid off from the Airlines I had to reinvent myself and he looked at my resume. There's no constant threat from a technical tactical aspect of the jobs it was all over the map the but the overriding thread or the consistent thread was that I did have internally. I haven't abdominal spirit. You have it in spades. You have this level of intensity city. I think where you don't quit but you also have this this what I'm sensing is this ability or the desire yearning to learn right and and I don't know how I think that's a choice. Somebody makes somebody born without innate with a taught at whatever but I think it's a requirement necessity. If you're going to succeed in today's world you've got to have that combination of an domino spirit of level of intensity combined with a teachable spirit. I sense that in you. What do you think when you hear me say that I I you know I I appreciate it. I take those is all very nice compliments. you know but at the end of the day you know and you line up you know a group of successful asphalt. Moore as one of the things they have is confidence in their ability right you know I'm not a student by any means but at the same time I understand respect what a calculated risk is. and momentum is another thing too where you know. I've learned over the years a few game momentum. You know keep it Movin. Who've stop. It's tough to get it going. So you know you learn that lesson over time to where you know you talk about that nasty and wanting to learn and you know I it's more you know to be honest with out of fear because I don't want the ball rolling because I know how hard it was to get all the move to begin with. I don't WanNa get in its way and stop it again or or God forbid having moved backwards for the new really in trouble so you know the the fear of the ball stopping or slowing down you know Kinda drives you to hey. How do we go through and keep pushing this thing down the hill and then eventually lead role on its own to where you know now. We're just trying to stay on to where where we wanted. Go yeah the power will meant something. That's often overlooked. You're absolutely right. I mean because once you can keep it going and I like how you put that the fear of stopping shopping or having it stop. It's at healthy fear. I think it's that fear of I think that's what most people seem to ah particularly entrepreneurs they understand the power of of that momentum in the in the ability of trying to avoid getting yourself in the mud right because goes out of the getting yourself out of the moments or some of the painful life lessons. I think is necessary. A sounds like you've been in some of the in the mud moments particularly those eight years of particularly when you said that has you put your you know full throttle going balls at all on that thing what some of those moments in that eight years because I mean what a eight years. You've probably saw a lot like you said I mean we're. We're some of those in the bud moments in those eight years that that you can't forget why I would say you know one one of the things I just had a conversation today. in an interview with the young lady can ready to join join the tall grass family. Is You know you never know what you I don't know man and never be that you know everything because as soon as you do that you're going to kill so and we talked about you know in the interview that I just had ah just a couple of hours ago. Is You know that momentum is something that's incredibly important but also you know every company shed its skin at different intervals somewhere with the headcount. Count You know a company with ten employees is much much different than a company with fifty employees. Company does a million dollars or revenue as much much different than a company that does you know twenty five thirty million eighty dollars of revenue and if you go through an ad headcount you know fifty employees seventy five hundred fifty you know those are evolutionary points with within your organization into where you know what you did with fifty employees is much much different than what you do and handle yourself at a hundred you know same way from a revenue standpoint. You kinda depend on what what industry are what type of you know like the service yourself. You know million dollars. You can't get away with the same when you twenty five million and you definitely don't do it at fifty million ensure the hell. Don't do it at one hundred billion so you know I it is really kind of keeping your head on a level to where understanding where those bumps in the road are with the HR needs whether it'd be benefits whether it be recruiting whether it be competition whether the you know you know disruptions in the market. You know there's a a whole lot of things. you know that that go through it again trying to get you in the mud if you will but that's where again. I wanted that some some momentum you know yeah you're. GonNa hit a soggy spot but if you're rolling fast enough and she had the foresight of okay this is coming in you know it's it's getting ready to hit the fan. you've got enough. Momentum takes you through that soggy part. Yeah it'll slow you down a little bit but you still move okay we learned that lesson and unless this with its redundancy and these departments or you know had counter or whatever they be so kind of wishy washy answer but you know there are a whole lot out of it but it was all due to evolution you know and you go through continuing to evolve and have the is on it where hey we can't do it that way anymore. Well you know we used to do it that way. And that way works well you did but it but it doesn't work anymore because now look where we are and this is where it is us so not only from where I said you know whether it be an owner or an executive position but also you know make sure your team members understand that just because as we did it that way yesterday then we can always go through do that and they also understand that that evolutionary part of the business growing as well you mentioned tenacity which I think is if after doing four hundred of these conversations that is the overarching theme I mean isn't tenacity really the the difference maker between someone who's successful and someone who isn't I believe so tenacity competence. You know like I said you lose your confidence events. Then you're dead the water and like I say one kind of goes hand in hand with the other I absolutely agree how does one how does one on overcome lack of confidence. We faced with it. I'm curious on how how do you deal with it. You know I I've been very fortunate. I have an incredible network of people people that are around me like I'm still in contact with the gentleman that I worked for the DOT COM I was very very fortunate to be selected it to be a part of the Pipeline Entrepreneur Group which is a group of entrepreneurs that selected once a year when I was selected it was just in the state of Kansas but now it's grown to shoot Kansas Nebraska Missouri. I believe Iowa and that some of the come the best of the best you know entrepreneurial minds in the Midwest in my opinion antastic fantastic organization you know when you surround yourself with good people you understand that that you know the things that keep me up at nine or the same things that keep my fellow pipeline people up at night or even you know people in mentors. I've been there you know I understand that you know. You're I'm not alone. You know you're not a failure because you weren't whether or not you're gonNA make payroll next week or you're not a failure because you know you're getting this bump in the road. We all go through uh-huh and when when you understand that people look up to you really respect and you you see what they've accomplished and you sit down with over you know cocktail. Taylor or breakfast or whatever may be they had to go. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Let me tell you the ass kicked undertook on this and they have a very similar story. You know I it it. Doesn't it picks back up because again you know even the biggest brightest smartest you have taken beatings and they're still you know still walk and talk in a day and therefore you don't feel as lovely in entrepreneurial world can be a very lonely place if you don't have the right people around and that is something that we are you know again. I've incredibly incredibly blessed to have is a whole lot of really smart people around me that have taken the launch and take him the same meetings yes. I have and I said yeah and disturbing other strive their junior. Keep going pretty quick. You just don't know the what is the power of that authentic. Network is can't be understated or overstated. I mean it's it's something that is everybody has asked to to come to grips with. How intentional have you been in. What do you do to build that network. You know like I say that's another..
"co owner" Discussed on Dose of Leadership
"David Barnes welcome to the show. Thank you coming on. It's exciting. I don't normally do these face to face but with the power of technology you're on the road in your car and I'm sitting here in my basement and we're having this conversation so thank you for for having the flexibility to do this this. Oh absolutely happy to do so. Tell me a little bit more about your Kansas native right I mean did you always find yourself in Kansas City or were you ever down here in which Tom no actually I grew up in southeast Kansas about an hour north of Tulsa Oklahoma just on on side it's Caney Kansas where from then I went to school Pittsburg State in Southeast Kansas and then moved to the nineteen ninety-seven after after my after my college well yeah when dad went to Pittsburgh. Stay Ah yeah guerrillas very good. Well what tell me a little bit more about coming out of Kansas or Pittsburg state. What was the dream then. What were you hoping to do or accomplish to be honest with you coming out of college. my goal is just pay the rent. Maybe find it brand. You know coming out young and you got the whole front of you but you know you really don't know anything yet. I'm forty seven years old now and I still don't know a whole lot but but I found a pretty good landing spot here in Kansas City. Kansas City will always be my how Kennedy's been very very good to me. It's very entrepreneurial town. It's an easy time to live in you can get from one into town at another lesson and our traffic is not too terribly bad. You know joke around people that complain what about kids. They traffic basically telling me. They've never been anywhere and that's right. I lived in the southern California and I've lived in. DC you see area in the traffic. Nothing came cities a dream. Are you kidding me. Yeah absolutely absolutely very cool so tell me a little bit quick about the pat hat of of how you got to be the chief operating officer in the CO owner of tall grass freight been there since twenty fifteen but what was that path generally there is a lot of folks that I that I won the professional lottery early in my career I don't know anything other than startups. never worked for the big fortune five hundred companies somebody's established and everything is already built and you know you really hope you get three percent gain games all of what you did the previous quarters to make stockholders happy and you know. I that world is completely Greek to me. you know coming out of school out of state state I I jumped on to wasn't necessarily start up and it was still a high growth company imagine if you will back in the day when he actually paid for long distance distance this company was a long distance reseller they go through by you know few million minutes from sprint or MCI AT and T. and then turn around and sell that to as a member benefit affinity programs that you will to those members and was able to jump in and got in as a customer service person just kind of doing that learning the ropes you know great trump and good people well-managed again you know fast track you know it was growing by leaps and bounds still very much had that that that you know growth startup feel to it and then the owners kind of saw the writing on wall when they broke up the baby bells and you know the director regulations came along and it broke up and we went from paying fifteen cents a minute for long distance three cents a minute you know they got out at a really good time and my phone rang one day from one of the previous owners of that company and he was starting a dot com company and called me up and says hey you know anything about free. I'm like now is like I really don't either. you want to come over here and he'll be this thing roll it up. You know nineteen ninety nine and somebody calls you up and says hey you. WanNa work for DOT com. You know you do the cartoon character kool-aid Van through the wall place. you know to go over and be able to do that and that is when you know. I kinda cashed my professional lottery ticket if you will because I started the day before the website long so company was truly Isiro revenues no customers you know just kinda hoping at a whim and you know that was may of nineteen ninety nine nine and when I left the company in October two thousand seven we went from zero revenues and I think I was employee number seven or eight to just shy of four hundred billion dollars revenue you know six seven hundred employees and you know was was was eleven the drain so and then during that tenure. I have the opportunity to do a lot of different things start off. you know originally. I was hired to go through customer service but when there's this land the website launching new customers really trying to no need for a customer service person so you know I did some sales and then you know working my way up to where you know as a sales sales manager in trying to manage through that process and in our member in its cliche to say but I remember sitting in a break room the owner and we would draw of ideas as far as a a Sierra or you know you know everything was homegrown there at that company and we withdraw ideas on a Napkin. I'll be like this button go through and do this and this helped me more efficient based on the way we're doing things today and literally kind of drawn stuff up on the dirt so I tell everybody made the logical move from sales tight T I and became a project of the product manager and implemented these processes and systems uh-huh and you know you know things in place to go through to make the machine. You know roll automation. Technology is a critical part especially in service industry that that that that I've been in to where you let the machine do what what the machine does and then you have humans go through just kind of picking up the EMINEM. Sofala all of the ball on the way and then continue to refine tweet can change that so you know I was in the it department for a good portion of my career rear there and then once the system is kind of built and established and enrolling then you know the other team to begin said hey you know anything about you know this this paper. Click Google illegal stuff and I'm like no and he's like well mean either. WanNa learn and I was like all right sure so then I made the logical move from from sales. It and from it over to marketing and become I Edwards certification and figured out you know some of the outcome pay per click and I did a lot of code analysis and you know I was Customer Acquisition Manager Director. Whatever I titles were ever really a big deal place but I have all all all customer acquisition and say learn you know tremendous amount and had the benefit of having pretty good sized budget behind me to wear are you you know budget in that world is a lot because you have velocity behind the numbers so if you turn it off the left turn right you can go through and see the effects of that pretty quickly uh-huh so that that helps to speed up my learning curve on that piece and you know towards the end of two thousand seven is some early stock options that I got made whole along. had a little bit of a war chest. You know two thousand seven. I was thirty five years old. you know my kids were still young. you know they really didn't know about. Nikes Zimba little limit or anything like that yet so you know they really cared about. Is You know it's peaches. They've finished their dinner. so you. Kinda that crossroads you live where you had a little bit of a war chest and and again you know things were were. You know fairly established how opportunity to go out and start my own company. am. I did I didn't. I never want to be one of those guys to where they look back at age. You know whatever it is forty forty five fifty picking number pick an age and go man. I really wish I coulda really wish I wouldn't you know I don't want to be one of the brothers that have been should have been what and then I broke off on my own and started a digital marketing marketed see you're in Kansas City and grew that and and was was very fortunate at successful exit in that in two thousand twelve has the golden handcuffs on me for about a year and a half after I sold that company wants those handcuffs came off then I took you know a little bit of time often Kinda roam the earth. If you will reconnect my network can watches and dinners and you know five o'clock drinks and then started doing some consulting work because one. I didn't want to get a real job into you know. I still needed to work because I was starting not sitting to my house and that is how I bound. You know tall grass free just through my consulting business. They were accompanied those very much on the growth in that startup phase and I knew the freight industry you know very well from a technical standpoint from a process standpoint yeah I still had a pretty good finger on the pulse of how that world works works and what you can do with it if you do it right and you know I did some consulting work for probably about six months and going through and kind of helping you can get some some things lined up in the morning looked at it. The more I liked it and again you know one of those cliche you know saying that this is absolutely true the owner and an and founder of of of Tall Grass and sat down at a steakhouse here down and literally negotiate and be buying in to the company on a Napkin. I had a ball the pin wrote it all out they I know with its revenues. Are this this this this sled you check for this amount. Would it be worth going to be coming in and you know we worked it out. We shook hands on it and you know here. We are three and five hundred awards later so it's been it's been an incredible ride. I love that to the synopsis. There was you had me on the edge of the seat in in what I liked about it. I want to get your perspective on what you think. The constant thread was but I love stories and examples of people who in a sense reinvent themselves every time they turn around or not reinvent or at least when they find opportunities unity's they just say yes and figure out the details later you you have a series serious inquisitive mindset. You're always wanting to learn more. You're not afraid to say no. There's so many things that I was thinking about as you're telling that story what do you think the common threads were when you kind of look back with perspective on what made you that ability to to get where you're at in other words. What were the kind of the marks of success or the the the successful habits that lead that led you down this path the successful journey? I really kind of goes back to when I joined the Dot Dot Com and ninety.
