'Dangerous' Alabama tornado slams buildings, uproots trees

"A massive storm system rolling across the south is spawned a tornado that costs substantial damage in Selma, Alabama, on Norman hall, the tornadoes shredded walls of Homs topple roofs and uprooted trees in Selma, a city etched in the history of the civil rights movement. The national weather service described the tornado as large and extremely dangerous and says it caused damage in a matter of minutes. That struck fear in residents who saw buildings brought down. She said that she was the baby queen. Oh my God. Severe weather also caused damage in Georgia, damage was reported in county's west of downtown Atlanta, including Douglas and Cobb counties, thousands of customers in Alabama and Georgia, or without power.

Working Through Analysis Paralysis

"For those of you that are not aware of what analysis paralysis is, it's where you start trading and you don't have a strategy that you can trust, or that you've learned, that you can rely on and you've just been essentially scrolling through YouTube and taking little bits and pieces from this person, that person, you try and pull it all together. And yeah, I get why you might do that. It does seem like a thing to do, right? But as I say in my courses in various free content, to get this right to get the right indicators to act with price in a certain way, the way that you wish to trade, whether that be trading ranges, whether that be trading short, trading trends, trading trendlines, like horizontal trendlines, or sorry, any trendline, really. All the right indicators that you need without giving yourself analysis paralysis and confusion. And to do that right from the get go, it's kind of like going into a professional kitchen, which might have, you know, 5000 ingredients in it. Now, you're not a chef. You have no recipe to work from. You are, you never worked in a professional kitchen and you don't know where all the ingredients are. Chef calls out on a ten souffles. You've never tasted a souffle. You've never seen a souffle. You don't even know what a souffle is. So your job now is to make ten souffles within the hour. Well, without a recipe, you know, the probability of you getting that right is pretty much nil. Even with the recipe, if you haven't got the practice and the know how that chefs have, you'll probably going to struggle. And the reason I use souffle is that I've watched enough cooking shows in my time to know that they're bloody hard to do. So analysis paralysis and how can we relate that back to the example that I just gave? Well, in the markets, if you go in and you look in your trading view charts or any charts for that matter, you're going to have a plethora of different indicators for which you can use. And of course, you can come up with as many ideas as you possibly can with relation to how they work. So it's an infinite amount of options you have available to try and pinpoint something that's going to work. It is highly unlikely.

Is Binance In Trouble?

"So let's look at the Bitcoin chart. You want to look at it, but I'll talk you through what I'm saying. And this comes back to what I've been speaking to a little bit lately when last week I was asked by some members of my Discord community. If I still stood by my analysis that I put out there on the 19th of October. Now that was in relation to Bitcoin going down as low as $11,000. Now, where I stand right now, yeah, I mean, the analysis is still just as strong now. If not stronger than what it was back on the 19th of October, keep in mind the 19th of October, that was before the support. That was before new lows for 2022 had been set. It was also before the fall of FTX, the issues with genesis and Gemini and if rumors are to be believed today, it sounds as though some rumors spreading about binance. Now, for the most part, the market hasn't been too badly effective. However, I will say the selling did speed up. There's no doubt about it. The let me just go to the four hour candle. The last two, four hour candles. The one that we're on now is still 23 minutes ago. He's down a full percent in the cannibal for that down .6 of a percent. And that sort of came off of a very slow weekend of trading, not a great deal occurring over our week. is something that we have become fairly accustomed to. Slowed right up on the weekends. Last week, now this is one of the smaller Bitcoin candles that we've seen in a long time, from the low to the high, the entire week's range came in at 4.55%, which it ain't much. When you consider when you consider that the week before, I mean, it wasn't a big week, but that candle was up 8.4% from low to high.

It's a four hour come back to an old level of support around 9 cents, just a bit. Just a tiny bit lower than 90 cents, the brake has gone the trend is valid and it is a very nice four hour cradle. For those of you of course, that know what the cradle strategy is. liking the look of that right now. As far as Bitcoin goes, well, so far today it's flat. It's at 16,831. And what does that actually mean? Well, it means that we sold off. And let me tell you something. Since well, in December, let me actually use a good idea. Let me tell you the whole range of December so far, given that we are on the 8th day of December from the high to the low, Bitcoin has moved 4.2%. Now that's over 8 days. It is a very sideways market. We did see, however, on the 5th of December, it pushed up to a high of 17,423 before closing at 16,958. So it pushed up. It pulled back and since then, two days ago, it was up to .7 of a percent yesterday down 1.5%.

Well, Georgia has the second most counties of any state in the country, and you can just go county by county, go to Wayne county, go to tattnall county, go to tombs county, go to Emmanuel county, their turnout was just down. It's just people who came and showed up or did not show up. It's that simple. We're not even talking about the nonsense and Fulton or Henry or dak or Cobb, turnout was down, and it manifested in hershel walker, unfortunately coming about 95,000 votes short, but 200,000 people in the state of Georgia had something better to do.

Will the Fed Slow Down on Rate Hikes?

"I'm going to start off by jumping across into the fed article right here. Now, this was back on November 30th. So just so everyone is aware this has got nothing to do with the most recent price action obviously the last 24 48 hours. But it is a trend. We watch the fed minutes. We watch what they say and it typically becomes like a cruise ship. You know, it's a long way to turn. It stays its path for a long time. It takes a long time to slow down and change course. The fed came out and said that they're not going to be potentially raising rates as quickly. What do you guys been keeping up on this and how has it affected what you do when your day to today? What are your thoughts on the fed reducing the rate at which it is increasing rates, guys? when I see it. I don't think inflation has come down that much, just looking at some charts and some data, I don't think inflation has, it has slowed, but it's not to the point that they want. Whether it's just some bit of a relief from the bear market that we've been in. And we're seeing some money flow back into the traditional markets with the U.S. dollar getting a little bit weaker. But yeah. I'm not buying into it too much. It has affected me with House loans. It's a bit of a pain. But it is necessary to flush out, especially weight companies that have gone through an aggressive growth cycle, especially tech companies. I've got a few friends that work in tech. And the companies that they work with went through aggressive growth cycles and now they're just laying off staff, which will go into with by a bit laying a 30% of the staff, but I don't think that's that much compared while the companies out there.

They were going to have their big party there and what about 90 minutes beforehand Jeff cats. They canceled. They canceled on them. They did. And this is what is so crazy about this Todd. Victoria Cobb, who is the president of that group, has been a guest on my program. I can't even begin to tell you how many times and the family foundation of Virginia great organization really, really concerned with protecting innocent life and what a great people. They're just great people and they chose this particular place, metzger's. And as you say about 90 minutes before they were scheduled to show up for their dessert reception, they get a call that said, hey, we've decided you can't come in because some of our staff members are not going to feel comfortable or safe. Yeah, and according to, according to their press release, Victoria Cobb's press release, they said that some of the gay staff would not serve them. This is insane. What you do at that point is go up to your employees who refuse to do their job and you give them an ultimatum. Either either serve the rice krispie treats or hit the road. That's exactly right side. You know, I reached out to my brother who has spent the better part of 30 years as a chef as an executive chef. A number of big restaurants in places like San Francisco and South Florida. And I said to him, so what do you do? He says, well, if you don't have trouble getting staff, you tell the current staff, hey, listen, you do your job, or you get out, and if you really are thinking, my gosh, I don't know if I can replace these people, then you is the owner you as the managers you as the executive team take care of this party.

Bitcoin Bull Market Back? Not So Fast

"So at the moment what we've got when we talk about Bitcoin is a couple of days where we've moved higher. And whilst it's really nice to see, and I want to, you know, I don't think it's time for celebration just yet. Sure, don't deplete the joy factor of seeing the market finally having a little bit of upward swings. Don't forget, we have been here before. And I want to make you aware of this. So before I go ahead and tell you if something that could occur and strengthen that argument with a few things that are going on in the market, I wanted to sort of touch base and let you know Bitcoin was up nearly four and a half percent, yes. So the other day before it closed off about 1.4%. And we now do have a higher low to go, sorry, got a high low and a higher high to go with it higher, which means there is a daily uptrend. And well, yes, it's nice. It's good. It's good. It's not as nice as damn nice. It's damn good. What we've got now is we've got people that are getting a little bit, oh, is the bottom end. And we'll see that continue to come out. Every time we see any green in the market, we do see that narrative evolve. The bull market might come back. Well, we might be out of it. There might have been the bottom. We might have at the bottom and you get the people that say, tolerant of autumn was in and all that sort of stuff. Just ignore all that nonsense. It's really worthwhile to just ignore it. You know, getting a head stuck into Twitter or anything else for that matter. It can end up just being a costly exercise that you don't need to do. And when I say costs, I don't necessarily mean financially. It could be financially. I mean more on your mental health and your ability to make your own decisions because at the end of the day is traders and investors. We can blame whoever we want, but the reality is, it's you.

We May See a Slow Grind Into Christmas

"There has been a number of these relatively slow days over the last couple of weeks. And today is yet another with the entire days trading range being that of, let me tell you. 1.2%. That's how much it has moved since the market opened very, very, very slow day, indeed. And look, in all honesty, we may see a real slow grind into Christmas. So look, in saying that, I mean, I only talking about what I'm seeing on the charts right now. What I'm seeing on the charts right now is a market in a consolidation. We've got some support down around roughly speaking, 15,467. I know that's not very roughly, but that's the region that I'm looking at. We've got two tests of support at the year's lows. That is the years lows of 2022. The current lows in this bear market. And what I'm seeing is not a great deal of enthusiasm to the long side or the short side at the moment, yesterday Bitcoin closed down 1.27%. And that represented a pretty decent move considering the day before closed down .17. .36 is over before that, the day before, that .46 and the day before that was .03%. So to give you some perspective since the 24th of November highs, we have come off to our current position 3%. It's not doing a great deal. Second to that today's candles. On the lower time frames and the best chart to look at really, if you want to see what confusion looks like, is the one hour on Bitcoin. It's really terrible. We had a candle this morning at 3 o'clock this morning that was pretty much the entire what was yesterday's range, but the entire of yesterday's range was 2.43% from high to low or so from low to high. And since then we've just been down. We've been up. There's no simplicity. There's no trend there. So what do we do when the markets get like this? Well, the bottom line is we look for opportunity.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I've got the pleasure of having Danny here who's the head of tax Australia full coin. Of course, we've done a lot with kindly in the past and it is the platform that I use to essentially bring everything together so that we can actually get our records and make it work. And what we want to be doing today is just discussing a few of the tax environments here in Australia. Of course, for different jurisdictions, there will be different laws and whatnot. But thanks so much, Danny, for taking some time out of your busy day to have a chat with us mate. Yeah, thanks, Greg. And it's great to chat. Yeah, look, if anyone's got any questions throughout, this is, well, we're going to be going for about 20 minutes half an hour. We'll keep it short to sync to the point because I believe you'll find a London after this, aren't you? I will be next week. No worries. So look, just to kick things off, I think one of the important things that people have been asking me, of course, this year we have seen Celsius go files for chapter 11. We've seen FTX Australia file as well for something similar and in different jurisdictions, BlockFi. We've seen the losses of Luna. There's been an awful lot of events that have had people make some fairly sizable losses. So I think maybe to kick this off, it's to maybe differentiate administration and loss and how we can work that in to tax filings HDL. Yeah, definitely. And I think it's a really important time to be discussing this as well, because it's only really after the fact that a lot of people realize, well, is there anything I could have done that could have helped me in this situation for tax purposes and often there are steps you can take along the way to make sure you keep good records and so on. So yeah, definitely a good time to talk about it.

"This market does continue to go through these big swings. Hopefully we see another big swing and hopefully there is generational wealth that we can build in that period of time. But you've got about 18 months to get your head around things. And you've got two choices. If you're the person that wants to quit and walk away, fine. Absolutely fine. But how are you going to feel? big, big run, and you are not involved in it at all. Well, what you're going to be doing is you're probably going to get back involved, but you're going to be buying when Bitcoin's at 50, 60,000. Not when it's down here around these levels that it is today. And I did a video on trading view and you can look at my socials. And if you're in the Discord group, I post the video yesterday and the TC post chat. At the bi levels that I'm looking at for Bitcoin. So you've got the option now to fight through the pain, remove the emotions from this whole process. And start to consider yourself in four or 5 years ahead. That is where you make your money. You don't make it today. You plan it today. You take action today. You educate today, you make it tomorrow.

Crypto Market Snapshot: A Lack of Trading Opportunities

"I did a scan this morning had a few levels to watch. I'm still looking at fitty, if I fit phi, if I TFR, USD T, a little bit of a level forming around, just above the three set Mark, but there's not been a great deal of action. I've got to be honest. There's not been a great deal of action that's really sort of captured my attention. A little bit of a little bit of everything out there today so far. Of course, yesterday, look, we did see the market come off. The problem that I found when it came to actual trading opportunities was, well, the lack of them. The lack of charting opportunities was, yeah, that was the one. But more importantly, we just haven't got simplicity. Yes, we saw the market come off. But what we've been seeing is kind of just a quick move. And the move down was a lot was lovely on many of the pairs. The problem was, is the pull back that it then subsequently came to create. The pullback was sharp in many cases and deep in many cases as well. And whilst Bitcoin, I'm looking at the two hour chart now. There is a lower high, there is a lower low, it's pulled back in, sort of rejected just shy of 16,000 with the high coming in at 15 9 67. There could have been an opportunity to short up in there. How do I have a smaller candle? A small bearish candle that follows a crypto cradle strategy, but it didn't get that. Did not get that at all. It wasn't something that played out the way I was hopeful for it to do so. And that ended up being the case for many across the board. What I am looking at at the moment, however, is some of those flat levels that I spoke of before. I did find the number of those. Anyway, yesterday's cycle on the daily time frame. For Bitcoin, well, it did close down. It was down about 3% if I'm correct. Let's have a look 3% down on Bitcoin. And it did in fact set new lows for the 2022 bear market there as well.

It is essentially saying, yep, we're open to doing it, but we've got to do our due diligence. Second to that, of course, this caused a lot of money, which is already flying out of FTX yesterday. And days prior to continue. Now, with that liquidity or would that money flying out with that money flying out the door, there has been a lot of delays in getting those funding. And I've had information from FTX in Australia here today. They are now looking to open up the transferable also transferring of stablecoins and also then your coins that may still be on exchange. Excuse me. I'll have a frog in my throat. So it's been a wild wild day. And I mean, look, this is one of those events that could you see it coming. I certainly couldn't. Not at all.

I mean, I just hope that at the end of this, binance are able to come in and essentially save the day, because FTX is a phenomenal trading platform, but we need to have that trust back. We need to know that it's safe that we can trade on that knowing that we are more safe than we've ever been.

Your Bitcoin Daily Up-Trend

"I'm excited for the week ahead because what I'm seeing right now is quite interesting. Let me take you through it. Starting off first of all with Bitcoin. Now I'm going to speak to the weekly first, right? Because the weekly did not knock it out of the park, the week before was up 5.4%. Last week only at 1.36%. I'm already interested right now on that daily time frame as we do now have an uptrend. We did see the high or low set in on what was that that was the lowest 20,033. So 20,000 has held this time around. I say this time around because we very well may come back to test it. But we held and not only that, we saw a very strong day on Friday up 4.66% on Bitcoin. Now that move high was seen market wide more or less. The only thing is that did not continue through the weekend, which is not something that really bothers me worries me or concerns me. Why will the weekends have been known recently, especially to have gone quiet whilst institutional volume has come in, we are seeing much more of a reflective market of 5 day a week action packed place. It won't be until retail properly enters back into our space that starts to pump over weekends or down by the weekends as well. So this little pullback that we saw, we saw a little move up on Saturday of 7.7%. Then we fell Sunday 1.8%, and we're down .3% today. So things sort of settling down a little bit. We saw the high of this trend so far, 21,480 and you've heard me speak quite frequently of the need or the hope desire to see us push on the 22,000. Now what we're seeing at the moment is a trend. First of all, Bitcoin's in a daily uptrend. And we're seeing options where it's pulling back on the 8s, the 12s, the 16s across the board. In fact, my watch list that I just put out to my community members in Discord is pretty much packed with 8 12 and 16 hour options on the cradle there as it is the higher time frames that are dominant.

Trends Are Around - Will They Continue?

"I've got probably one of the largest watch lists that I have had all year, I get. That might be an exaggeration, but really it's a big watch list. It's definitely dominated by the 8 hour time frame at this stage. Yeah, and this is what's really important about Bitcoin and the greater market at the moment is that we do get a continuation. Now, just to give you some context here, I know that the last two days were up 3.9% on the 25th. We were up 3.4% on the 26th yesterday, we pulled back 2.3% and we're currently down .3%. It's a pretty small move, right? It's two candles, realistically. We have gained a little bit. There is still no daily uptrend, not yet, no daily uptrend. The weekly is currently up 3.4%. It's not a huge week that downtrend on the weekly is still in play. It is still there. It is still building in to the support level. So there's a lot that still needs to be done. And where this starts is by setting a higher low on the four hour 8 hour and a lot of these mid to higher time frames. We get that in place and then we've got the opportunity if we do push to new highs within this specific trend, we have something a little bit more established and potentially fingers crossed. Anyway, we can see this continue to the upside for some time ahead.

"Welcome to the trader Cobb crypto podcast back to usual schedule of afternoon shows wrapping up what has been a trading day. Well, it's a really wrapping it up though, is it? I mean, there's still more trading to be done throughout the day if some of the levels that I have in my watchlist are to eventuate. And I've got a pretty good list. Before I go into that, the top ten and what's happening in the market and yada yada and give my two cents worth. I just wanted to sort of put it out there. Yesterday when I did my FTX scan, I did it ten 30 in the morning and you can find these on my trader cob YouTube channel. They're there we do content for the FTX virtual contracts pretty much daily there. And it's a watch list or to watch list. Sorry, so to watch list or it's a full scan to create the watch list. And it's there to point out trading opportunities that will fit the rules for which we teach here at trader cob. So it's worthwhile making sure you subscribe to that because an example to give you if you want to go and have a look at that and I know most of you probably won't. Once you get through it, my list is done alphabetically. So it's M KR maker, right? And at 11 o'clock, which was around about the time that I was talking about this, we got a bearish channel there on the two hour. Now it fit the cradle rules beautifully well. If you know what the cradle is, you'll see that. And it's gone on to be a nice little profit. Really nice profit. That was just off a free scan that was out there. Now, that happens that I do once a week. Inside of our Discord for the members, we're doing that 5 times a week, but often a couple more times than that because we'll just jump in and often just do a scan.

"Good idea ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the trader called crypto podcast. I am your host. Craig Cobb. And I just have a really great session with my apprentices. These are people that have shown that they're very eager in the market within my credit card community. So they've done the become a trader become a master course. They've done the full three strategies. And they've been in the community. And just seeing how much they're enthusiasm is and how much they help and give to others. That's how they get into the apprenticeship program. And it costs them nothing. That's a thing. I give them a great deal of my time to go over their trades and to help them with their psychology and every single different aspect of trading that comes to us. And oh, God, I love those guys. It's only guys at the moment. There's no women in there. I did invite some lovely ladies, but it didn't work out. So I was just a blokes. And oh gosh, it's so refreshing, you know? To be able to give that level of detail. I mean, I've been training for 17, 18 years now, and it does get stale from time to time. But you've got to give back and to give to people that are really eager and enthusiastic and to see what they're doing and to have, you know, good conversation around, you know, if I say I don't like this trade, the wise or is it? Why don't you like this? What is the problem? And to go into that depth that level of detail. God, it's just, it's just so satisfying for me and they've become friends, you know? We don't live anywhere near each other at the time being, but it's lovely to have and the accountability that these gentlemen have and I don't know. I told them tonight that I've got no doubt in their ability to have long-term success because not everyone starts with a big account. And look, it lights me up. It makes me proud, you know? I told them tonight that I don't make a lot of money out of this business, I told them, and the truth is that, but I know that most people won't believe me. I make my money through investing and trading. This income, the money that I pay myself for the business, it's my minute. It's half, it's half to a third of what I would get if I was to be out there doing something else. I do this because I fucking love it. I do it because I want to see you succeed. I want to help people with the expertise that I've got. Sure, I'd love to make more from it. But I'm okay. I'm okay, just helping other people. And making a wage. It's fine. I genuinely love to give to people and to help people.

"Able to see those classes actually happened, gave me an opportunity to wait a second. They're doing what I was doing, but drawing, but they're making stuff move. They make in their drawings move. How is that happening? Wait a second. And I think after talking with the professor that night, I actually went in the next day and changed my major to art. And then started to go down this path of being the football player leaving practice with an easel. Across the football field with an easel and all of my art mysterios and running it to the art lab. And of course sitting in the corner because pretty much I'm just leaving football practice and fresh hours but still just leaving football practice four hours of practice. So I dealt with that dynamic for two more years and it was incredibly beneficial for me. Just simply because it started to introduce me into graphic design. I was always exposed to graphic design via bubble letters, airbrush tees, just drawing certain things for certain people, but just didn't know that it was actual profession behind it. And being able to make that correlation there kind of sparked my career into the design world. Yeah, so getting that exposure to it knowing that this is something it's an option that you can take because prior to that design was something that you just sort of consumed. Like you mentioned in these sort of like bubble letters and stuff like that. But now knowing like, oh wait, I can do that too. I can make that. I mean, even that whole setup about leaving football practice and going to our class with the easel. Sounds like a feel good holiday movie or something. I mean, if you ever want to transcribe that into a story, I bit hallmark, pick it up. That sounds pretty dope. I may have to do that. That's a good idea. Yeah, so what were those like early days post college like in terms of your career? You graduated now you were majoring in graphic design. What was next after that? You know, it was the real world posting its first challenge to me. I think that first challenge to me was getting into an internship well as a football player, you're spending 40 hours a week on football. So you're not able to kind of go away and market yourself to other agencies and say like, hey, I'm a designer. I could do these things. It just wasn't acceptable, or it wasn't available for you. But in my case, the real world slapped that was put in front of me was I in order to work my internship, which I finally got at a local ad agencies, shown you with some partners there Topeka Kansas. I was only able to do that internship on Fridays from roughly 8 a.m. to three p.m.. In order to be able to do that, finish with school, but of course I have to make money somehow. So I hustled my way into talking to a Topeka youth project, a local small school that taught kids that were 15 to 21 jobs and life skill readiness. So it was my job to go out to the local fast food restaurants, the local libraries. Anybody who had a job for 18 and actually become a business representative and pitch the school to that company to say, hey, I know you manager and I know this kid that I just taught this class. You guys sound like you'll be a great match. You should probably hire this kid. Right? Getting the kid higher that was the first indication of negotiation and stakeholder like agreements, right? Knowing how to actually have those conversations, right? While doing that, I was only able to work, I believe it was 28 hours a week or 25 hours a week with that company. In order to do that as a business representative, I bargained to say, hey, let me help you with your website and your logo as well. So I'll do your website and your logo and I'll also be your business representative. I was doing that. So a normal day for me post college and this is how bad I really wanted to be in this world of design. I worked from 8 a.m. to roughly about three p.m., Monday through Wednesday at the typical youth project on Tuesday through Thursday. I was working overnight shift at FedEx, unloading trucks. So pretty much from roughly about three a.m. to 7 a.m. and then in between the Thursday to Friday, I was also unloading packages to target and basically being a target shelf stocker. All so that I can get the internship completed and also get the first level of experience out of the way. Now, I'm not saying that, you know, most designers now coming out of college don't have to worry about those types of stories and those types of hustles, but it was just a slightly different from me being in a small town and just wanting to make this work so bad and not wanting to go back home and say like, you know, hey, I didn't do it and make it. That was the start of hard work makes something out of you. But then also hard work increase the character that you need. As you continue to progress. You are hustling. Listen, man had to happen. That reminds me a lot of there's another guest we had on the show several several years ago. His name is Ben lindo. He's an industrial engineer out of, I think he's on affiliate Pittsburgh, one of the two, but he was mentioning how he would do design school. He was doing design school, and it was a UPS driver at the same time. And like would come to class in his UPS uniform and the teacher would always have something to say and that kind of thing. But he made it work. I mean, you know, when you're out there on your own, you have to hustle to make that, you know, it's going to make that happen. You have to make those sacrifices, those compromises, and it sounds like you really, really hustled to make that happen. So props to you. Exactly, exactly, and I think it benefited me a lot just because I was exposed to so many different conversations. So many levels of small talk. Yeah. So many levels of strategy. I knew that I can unload a semi truck of boxes from FedEx and under an hour. An under 56 minutes holding that record doing that, right? But I also knew the pattern of if I unload the boxes too fast on the belt, it could stop the belt. And then pretty much that makes the day longer for other people that are behind me. So it's just so many lessons that are there through on that first year out of college. Yeah, I mean, it really teaches you the value of hard work, too, you know? I mean, I think it's one thing if you're going to school and you manage to land that super cushy gig right out of school and it's not too hard but not too easy, like it's just kind of a Goldilocks kind of situation. But I mean, there's another thing when you get out and you really have to hustled like carve your way into a position or to get to a point where you're gonna be, you know, hopefully setting yourself up for the future in a good way, you know? Exactly, exactly. I think, you know, just being the first of the family to go to college first of the family to graduate college. You knew and understood you are your help. It wasn't something else that, you know, you can wait on you were your help. You were ascending this index avenue and arena so that you can then help your family on the back end of it. Yeah, like you said, you know, it's that thing where you don't want to go back home like defeated. You don't want to go back home like, oh, I couldn't make it. Like you sort of, that also pushes you and drives you to succeed as well. That feeling. Yes. Yes. So you worked for a number of companies between being in Kansas, being in Florida being in Texas, work for a lot of places. When you look back at your career now that you're at Microsoft, do you feel like there was a particular moment or a particular job or anything.

"External to the company as well. That sort of feeds into what I was gonna ask. What sorts of things are is the group doing internally and in the larger community, but recruitment sounds like a big part, at least of that external, I guess outreach of the group. Is that right? Indeed, indeed. I think if we look at just some of the general grounding of the group itself, it's based in on not just looking at one form of design. So that's one of the biggest differences there. It's not just a UX designer and you're a part of the group. It's more so of design with the capital D as its reference from our fearless leader Sterling. It is design. It's research. It's producers. It's data science, motion designers, audio designers, front end development, illustration, all of these people are a part of the group. And the key points there is getting into the intentional community to influence diversity. So influencing diversity internal to therefore make it external. Just creating that ripple so that we can continue to build from the inside out and doing that it was growing the community itself by creating teams channel as safe places. Along with the opportunity to share out hackathons right now, anybody in the group can kind of spin up a opportunity for someone to have a review and they can basically get started and you'll have multiple people join in and give them feedback. And it's different because you're getting feedback from friends in that sense, right? You know, I could tell you nah brought us, not gonna make it. That may not make it for yeah, since I like that. That's gonna be amazing, right? And it'll be a little bit different because it kind of feels that it's coming from that place that we get most of our things from that feel safe for us. So continuing to drive that type of community was important to us and doing it internally through the community piece, but then also reaching out to external to the community and going after middle schools and high schools and also HBCUs. Last year, we had a couple of events where we actually partnered with some of the HBCUs out there to kind of expose the craft of design to them. Interesting. You know, when I was in an HBCU 27 years ago, one of the first company one of the first tech companies I interviewed with was Microsoft. And actually, I mean, I think I've told this story on the podcast before. I'm well outside of college now, so I can sort of tell the story how I scan my way in there. But essentially I was as a math major in college. And my whole thing was I was part of this program that was sponsored by NASA like my scholarship and everything. And so the goal was like, oh, when you graduate college, you're going to work for one of these NASA facilities. I had already interned at two NASA facilities so in my mind, I'm thinking boom, career set when I graduate, NASA, right? 9 11 happens. When that happened, the funding from my program got pulled and it went towards Homeland Security. And so this whole guarantee of like, oh, well, you're gonna work for NASA when you graduate, completely gone. So I'm like, damn, I gotta find a way to like. I don't know what I'm gonna do when I graduate because I was working at the high museum selling tickets for like 8 70 an hour, like not making, you know, no real kind of money. And it really had no prospects of career stuff, but I had sort of gotten in really good with the computer science department with the secretary there. Shout out to misses banks. I don't know if she's even still there or not. But got in really good with her started hanging out in the computer lab and stuff, started hanging out in her office and that got me access to this interview book. And the interview book was basically, you know, juniors and seniors that were interviewing with all these companies and all you had to do was just kind of like slip your resume in, put your name down. And I was like, I'm just gonna slip my reservation there. And write my name. And I interviewed with real player to show you how long ago that was. That went nowhere. And then I interviewed with Microsoft. And I remember God, I remember the woman's name who I interviewed with, but there was a black woman. Interview with her. And she gave me one interview question. She was like, designed an alarm clock for a blind person, and she slid over like a sheet of paper and a pen, and I was like, just walk me through your process. And I'm like, oh, okay, so I was talking through, like, oh, we should do this. And it should vibrate and, you know, maybe have sound and all this kind of, you know, she was like, okay, all right, great, and she took it and she put it in a folder, shook my hand and that was it. That was the interview. I was like, that's it? Okay, well, apparently it was good enough because they flew me out to Seattle to do an interview with Microsoft and they had it in this sort of almost like an elimination style. I don't know if the interviews are like this now, but you do the first interview and if you pass the first when you go to the second one, if you pass the second one you go to the third one. And this was all day for like an internship. I remember because it started that maybe like 8 a.m. and it was getting until around maybe like 7 p.m. I was tired and I forget what the question was, it was something about notepad and right to left text or something and I think it was at that point that they realized, wait a minute, you're not a computer science major, are you? 'cause it was some programming stuff that I was like, I don't know. I don't know how to do this. And I didn't get the internship. But I remember vividly being on the campus and everything and like when I think of companies that are sort of giving me a chance in college, like Microsoft was that one company. So the fact that y'all are still doing HBCU research now some 20 something years later is a testament to the fact that you all have put skin in the game, and that it's not just, oh, we need to look for a diversity, where should we look? Why not look at black colleges like you all have been doing this now for a long time? Indeed, indeed. It's incredibly rewarding, not just to win by yourself, but it's also incredibly rewarding to see others win and see that spark in a high school is I that wait a second, I can become a designer. I could be a researcher. I can work at Microsoft. It was like, yeah, or actually one of the previous workshops with coat house, shout out to koda in Atlanta, who brought in 29 students from morehouse and spellman. At the time. And we ran through just a roughly about a 6 hour to 7 hour workshop with design and you can kind of see the amazing minds that are there and applying design thinking to those amazing minds. Our leaders coming behind us are going to be crazy good. And I think that is the reward that most of us get from that because there's a great chance that, hey, we will be working with these leaders later on in life. So it's extremely rewarding. And I would say the fact that you're, you know, you mentioned high schoolers and middle schoolers like you're going past just reaching them while they're in college. Like you're giving them at a really pivotal age when they can make a decision on where do I want to go in terms of my I want to say my career. I really think it's unfair to sort of burden in 18 year old with that anyway, but the fact that you're showing them that this is an option because now social media and technology is ubiquitous. When I was a teenager in the 90s, there was like Game Boy that was tamagotchi. They were super Nintendo. They were like, it was all consumer electronics sort of stuff. Certainly no smartphones or anything like that. But now you can sort of show them like you can be more than just a consumer or a user. You can be a creator. You can be someone that makes this stuff and to show them that at such a pivotal young age.

"Brevity and wit creative excellence without the grind. Now for this week's interview I'm talking with Terrell Cobb, a design lead at Microsoft in Dallas, Texas. Let's start the show. All right, so tell us who you are and what you do. So my name is Terrell Cobb. I am a design lead over at Microsoft as part of the digital transformation studios. Digital transformation studio. That sounds super lofty, and I'm sure we're going to get into that. But before we do, how has 2021 bin for you so far? How have things been going? 2021 has been a great ride for me. I believe that last year during the pandemic, it was learning how to be more self sufficient at home and also taking care of the family, all while taking care of myself as well. And I think within 2021, I've gained the appreciation of changing states and moving, and then also starting to center life around just taking care of me and also taking care of the family. So that's been a good ride so far. Nice. Also, you moved to Texas this year then. Yeah, so when Microsoft had the opportunity for flex work, I took advantage of that and got an opportunity to come back to the Dallas area and get to some familiarity and also just enjoy the atmosphere that we're in right now. Sorry to rub that into what was it in northwest folks? I was gonna ask what's changed for you last year, but clearly location's been a big part of that. Yeah, and the sun. Being able to see this one. Nice. So being a design leader Microsoft over the platform that you mention, can you tell me about that? Like, what all does that entail? Right. So the digital transformation studios is a conglomerate of several spaces within Microsoft. One of those faces in which I work in is the business applications group, business applications group are the parts of the business that actually build applications for large enterprise customers. And being able to sit in that part of the arena of Microsoft, it allows me to see how businesses are specifically using supply chain and provide certain intelligent solutions to that supply chain space. What does your team make up look like? Yeah, so my team today is made up of a couple of designers and also a researcher, however, one of the things that we kind of anchored to within Microsoft is being able to go with an a one Microsoft mindset. So I also consider my engineers and PMs as part of my tetrad or my team as well. So have an amazing group of people that I get to build amazing things with on a daily basis. I feel like that's been a fairly new development within companies to have like a researcher on the design team. As it relates to what you're doing, how does that work? I appreciate research so much. I believe I'm one of the biggest advocates for research and also content design. But specifically research, I believe that they're the silver lining of experiences. And if we don't have their heartbeat of what the experience should be, we're building in the wrong direction and that could be expensive over time. I can see how certainly if you feel like you're going in one direction and internally, you might think that's a good thing and then your users are using it and it's something completely different. Responsive to it a receptive to it like you want to and you have to go back to the drawing board. Exactly, exactly. I think just being southern and being from the south, those properties, like it's wrong to run a 100 mph in the wrong way. You would want to go in the right way so that you're not making program mistakes. So yeah, they're essential to a start of the project, they're essential to the midpoint of the project and they're essential to the delivery part of the project. Welcome me through what a typical day looks like for you. So a typical day from be these days are just a bunch of negotiating. It's either negotiating confidence of how much confidence the user is going to be exposed to by the options or things that we're building. It's also the negotiation of time of how much should the team be leveraged against a certain initiative? What are we talking about 6 months from now? What are we planning for a year from now? How do we engage the team itself? And I think recently, really taking a step back away from just design as a delivery as a process to more of enjoying the process of actually designing in the delivery will get there, but actually taking the time to enjoy the process of discovery going into definition, going into actually defining from the research and actually delivering something that's far off. And I'd imagine like in that process, you're also working in sprints and making sure everyone's up to speed in other parts of the company or maybe the other parts of your team because you mentioned engineers as well that you're working with. Indeed, indeed. So it's a healthy balance of speed and quality. And I know not a lot of other designers out there have to deal with most of that, but being at a large enterprise company like Microsoft is just there's nothing new under the sun. And you have to bring in your best footing on what that solution could be next. If that makes any sense. No, that makes a lot of sense. Yeah. Yeah. Now also at Microsoft, you're the cofounder of an employee resource group they're called black designers at Microsoft, which is for black designers at Microsoft. Tell me how that whole thing came about. Yeah, so the amazing story behind that is that I came into Microsoft and previously started other groups like Dallas black UX and also while I was that Capital One, with a couple of folks that kind of cofound the black end design employee resource group there. When I got to Microsoft it was more of, hey, I'm just going to focus on my career and a climb. I'm going to leave the employee recess group to the side. I'm going to just stay focused and do this. First day walking in, I meet another black designer and say, and she basically says to me, cheering Porter, from Houston, it's misses to be that, hey, I've never worked with a black designer before. You are my first black designer that I've ever worked with before. Wow. And that was the inkling of, okay, here we go. We're about to do it again. You're like the Grand Theft Auto meme. You're like, oh, shit, here we go again. Here we go. Here we go. No, so and then was intensified by both of us being on the same team and actually going to orientation. And when we went to orientation, we saw on the screen another black designer that was a part of the studio. We were like, well, wait a second. Where is she? And it's Zoe in and she's been inside of the studio, but pretty much could not find her. And then lo and behold, the next all hands, we meet with each other and we're like, huh. Okay, there has to be more of us. Where are we? I think along with that and just how big the company is, along with some of the understanding of designers being disenfranchised from not even being inside of the world of design from a black designer standpoint, we took that as an opportunity to build something ourselves inside of Microsoft and grow the talent that's internal. But then also attract talent that's.
