Twenty year old digital copyright law is still being fought about and copied today from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. You know, those music videos, you love on YouTube, and the memes you love to laugh at well. Proposed digital copyright laws in Europe and other countries kinda wanna make those a little less common, and they have their roots in a twenty year old copyright law here in the US called the digital millennium copyright act. So it's a big gnarly hairball of a law. Corey doctor was a writer and activist with the electronic frontier foundation. We reached him in his hotel room and Berlin, he and the F F have been talking about and litigating over the unintended consequences of the DMCA for almost twenty years. Now, the law was written at a time when it was newly possible to rip CDs and DVD's and put them online illegally downloading music was getting more popular Napster came out in nineteen ninety nine remember that and this big copyright law. The DMCA was designed to protect companies and artists from having their works, stolen and disseminated. All. Over the internet. But almost from the beginning critic said it was too broad doctor. Oh points to one section that covers the circumvention of tools that are designed to protect copyright the idea. Here was that if you like made a DVD player and he wanted to control whether DVD's bought in another country could play on it. You could make a little like code that check to see whether the DVD was bought in the same place as the DVD player, and if not you could refuse to play the DMCA made it illegal to tamper with things like that little code. But it basically said it was illegal to break any copyright locks in any product. And that's why you weren't allowed to open up your smartphone or your tractor to fix it which we talked about earlier this week. And so here we are twenty years later, and this tactic is now being used to lock third party ink out of ancient printers. It's in voting machines. And it's being used to punish security researchers who audit voting machines because they say if you reveal the defects in the voting machines, it might help. Someone bypass these copyright locks. Now, there is a provision in the law for a review every three years to consider exemptions one of those reviews just happened. It gave you more rights to fix your smartphone and your tractor and back in two thousand fifteen the library of congress did grant a limited exemption to protect researchers who were trying to find out if voting machines or other electric systems had security flaws as long as they were acting in good faith. However, there was a large catch the researchers can break through digital rights management DRM to find out if for example, a voting machine has a security problem. But if they describe the tools, they used to find those flaws they could get a huge fine or even go to jail, which means nobody else can verify the research. The DMCA should have been raised in the most common sense way imaginable, which is to say if you break the R M to infringe copyright. You're breaking the rules. If you're breaking DRM in your non infringing copyright. You're allowed to do. Do it refining. The DMC has been a long process, and it's not just academics. And researchers who want to fix it in two thousand sixteen major music industry organization said another provisions of the copyright law was making it too easy for sites like YouTube to keep hosting copyrighted music. And they wanted reforms to kind of ironic since the music industry pushed hard for the original law. And now for some related links related to copyright issues. Google is of course, a huge target of copyright owners. And yes, has let a lot slip through the cracks over the years, not even cracks canyons, really. But it put out a report yesterday detailing. It's twenty eighteen efforts to fight piracy. Google said it's invested one hundred million dollars in tools to spot infringing content. They actually scan uploads against a database of copyrighted material, which is something the proposed EU copyright law. Wants everyone to do in fact, and then if someone uploads copyrighted content, the original copyright owner gets ad revenue. From it Google said it's paid three billion dollars to copyright owners that way and another one point eight billion to the music industry in the form of revenue in its report. Google also said if you give people a way to pay for legitimate content. They are far less likely to steal it taking note TV. On demand people. Finally, if you're totally bored with smartphone designs, and I know you are because the biggest innovation in the last five years has basically been the notch. Then get yourself to the internet and watch video of Samsung's foldable smartphone, which it showed up yesterday at a developer conference. It falls out to become a seven inch tablet, and then closes up and there's a phone screen on the front. Google said, the Android operating system will support these crazy do hickeys Lenovo and Xiaomi and LG are also working on them willa work. I don't know. Do you want it? I don't know. All I know is it wasn't about politics. And I don't think it had a notch. I'm in both of those related links are on our website. Marketplace tech dot org. I'm Ali would. And thanks for listening to marketplace tech Tele friends, so they can listen to. This is a PM.

Museum of Failure: Dr. Samuel West

"The. Hey, everybody. Welcome to art of failure. I'm your host Steve Friedman. Thanks for tuning in. Yes, this is art of failure the podcast that explores what it means to fail as a human person. We all try so hard not to fail on a daily basis. And we also forget on a daily basis that failure is part of life, and that we can use failure as a catalyst for growth and movement towards bigger and better things. Did you know that Kodak started a precursor to Instagram Colgate toothpaste company, tried to get into the frozen food market, hate remember fat, Frey? Oles released Pringles. I do I did a voice over for them. I had to say things like may cause anal leakage. These are all examples of failed products. Our next guest said, quote, all the literature is obsessively focused on success, but eighty to ninety percent of innovations fail. Why don't these? Failures. Get the attention. They actually deserve. Well that guest is Dr Samuel west. He started the museum of failure. A museum that illustrates the failures of major companies in an effort to encourage people and organizations to learn from their failures, Dr west. We'll talk about why he started the museum of failure. What we can learn from the museum failure, and his very own personal struggles with failure including filing for bankruptcy. This is doctor Samuel west doctor Samuel west failure is a better teacher than success. I love that quote. I'm so interested to talk to you about failure, and your museum museum failure before we get into that. Can you talk a little bit about, you know, maybe some early failures some things that happen to you early in life that. Get into your connection failure. But what? Where'd you where where were you born? I know you're in Sweden now we born in Sweden. No seeing you just opened up a can of work here. Yeah. I've lived everywhere. I was born in Norway. Okay. Mothers, Icelandic my father's American grew up just about everywhere. He was works in the oilfield. So I I moved every year someplace. But now I live in Sweden the oil fields of Norway. Yeah. All right. What is that, like, moving moving moving moving? It's like you're an army brat. I remember can I say the word fuck. I'm podcast you can. I, I moved to California went to a good school there and the elementary school, and the remember I spoke English, but I didn't because I only learned it from my parents, I didn't know any of the bad words. So, so I remember out a recess. Somebody was saying some words and they were saying fuck. So I said it to, you know, fuck this fuck that I had no idea what it meant, and I didn't know idea is a bad word. So I got called in for foul language. I remember sitting there. I don't know how old I was nine or ten they're looking at saying fuck, I don't. What does that mean what I've never heard the word fuck? And they didn't believe me. I got detention and how old were you, I think I was about nine or ten ten year old doesn't know fuck is a bad word. That's quite understand that they didn't believe me. Listen, if you're a New Yorker and you're not saying that every two or three sentences. Nobody takes seriously. So what I mean it's like that's a big part of the article that people who swear are more intelligent people don't wear hats. Fucking true. Man. Are you fucking kidding me? Yeah. All right. First of all, tell people about the museum of failure. I and then what was the impetus to start that a collection of over one hundred different failed products, and mainly products products and services that the criteria to in the museum is obviously has to be failures, but they have to be in some way innovative. And then the probably also have to be interesting. Those are the three criteria to make it into the museum and the failure part from an organizational sort of innovation perspective failure. I like the academic definition is the failure is a deviation from expected results. All right. So you're an organizational psychologists, correct. Well, I started off as a clinical psychologist, doing a cognitive behavioral therapy and Daviel medicine, I work for about ten years, and I got tired of that and get a PHD. Doing research with an organizational psychology focused on innovation and climates for innovation. Let's what I've been doing past ten years would is an organizational psychologist. It's kind of abstract. I mean, an organizational psychologist doesn't really know that themselves. But it the study of, of the psychology of organizations. What, what defines the culture of a lot of what happens in organization is is connected to the culture. So how do you get from that? What's the moment? What's the bridge from that to the museum of failure? He went the long or the short version medium. The, the wages as of PHD's are really. Wade salary failure. I did a lot of consultancy work, the workshop and whatnot on the theme of innovation and realized that, there wasn't a lack of innovation message or techniques, and there's so many experts on vacation on the problem was that people are afraid of failure. So they don't take the risks the meaningful risks that they need to take the innovative. I was think as thinking about the how can I take exciting science? There's quite a bit of research on learning failure, and how can take that and package it in a way. It's interesting because there's so much information out there. The good stuff gets lost. And I didn't want to write a book and I didn't wanna do a couple of articles I wanted to find a new way of communicating and I didn't know how so two thousand. Nd sixteen I was on vacation with my family in Croatia. And I stumbled on a museum called museum of broken relationships. Google that it's common. People are just crying in there. It was just a beautiful beautiful beautiful museum simple. And just they communicate this abstract dot of broken relationships in the most wonderful way, simple, wonderful way. And it was there and then I decided, whoa, I should open museum, a failure. All right. So the museum starts give us give us some greatest hits from the museum. There's a lot of mean there's over one hundred one these there's. Tragic story of Kodak invented the digital camera. But in nineteen seventy five I think four seventy five but pay they didn't, you know, continue with digital cameras because they were frayed it would threaten their profitable, film products. Right. And once they cut up with everyone else, and they were they were really kick ass at digital cameras. And at the museum we have the first sort of camera for, for consumers, they even started an Instagram likes where you could share photos, but the used both the digital cameras and this image sharing service, as a way to get people to print more photos. So their whole business model is still about selling expensive photo paper. So then thousand eight nine people stop printing photos and Kodak goes up two thousand twelve and the same year Instagram was still Facebook for a billion dollars. Integrators thirteen employees. Remember that? Well, couldn't couldn't Instagram, just given Kodak? Here's two hundred million dollars keep you guys going. You helped us get to this point. We're going to be a little altruistic here. Keep you in the game just to keep you alive here. We're gonna throw the money your way. We're just polaroid stand these days, that whole instant photo thing, I have a polaroid video camera, a polaroid video camera. Yeah. It's a it's a polaroid video camera. The polaroid developed the uses same or similar film technology, but it was, so it was so complicated and expensive needed a special viewer to watch the film and all the films were like dark colors off. Go only film a certain length short films who's a hugely cost. The end of misadventure comes in the museum kind of being the of course, and I may have fun fun stupid things we have rejuvenate electric facial man, like, yeah, it looks like something about horror film. Itsel endorsed by Linda, Evan from the hitch. Oh, dynasty, you can't go wrong with her. He's a package thing. If you just shock your face for about fifteen minutes, a look is beautiful. It's really not that far away from, you know, at home shock therapy. I I'm I'm giving my producer Miranda a pen here. Unfortunately, it's, it's, it's a big pen and I think it's a male big man. Can you talk about the big for her? Yeah. She she holding it. Well, she broke her wrist into parts. So I'm wondering if that female version of the BIC pen would be better for somebody with a broken wrist because, because, you know how women are delicate. Hands a complete the so different from ours and most, I mean, the, the standard Penn is developed for us, intellectual strapping, manly men. Yeah. So big decided in two thousand eleven they decided to depend specifically, for women in this Semin hand. So it's, it's completely different from the pen for men comes into colors women, like, oh, okay. That's one check the box. Check one. Check two glitter. Of course, unicorns ruin it or mermaid things for this is for women, women. Okay. And then 'cause generally women, make the salary men big women are more expensive than the regular pens. So let's go to let's go to that. Meeting at big headquarters for big marketing arm, and they're sitting around a table. Bob, what do you got to Jeff? I got an idea. Go ahead. How about big for women. What do you mean? Women colors. You're onto something here because when I do my talks, I used the big Pender as an example of I don't know what actually went on at big. There's no documentation. I don't know. We're so bad. You speculate. So for a new product to be developed all these teams, I'm teams marketing teams, there's a lot of people who have to discuss product that's being developed before it's actually launched. So you have to imagine what's going on there, where there, no women at or where women or any half until Geant man would've said, hey, guys fucking stupid idea. It's not to it getting me. Yeah, you would imagine that somebody could have said that, you know, but I'm speculating again, there might not have been sense of psychological safety, the concept. It's really important for learning from failure, where in a team, people feel safe to express doubt to wanna Rable fallible and to speak up unpopular opinions and BIC Masumi that. There's no psychological safety because if somebody would have said, this is a stupid idealist is not do it either. They didn't say or they said it nobody listen to them. Right. Interesting. And and you know, we make light of the fact that these things are failures. But obviously this podcast and failures such an important tool to learn from always interested in the turnaround time from failure. But I'm thinking I'm thinking, go ahead. I can't I'm a museum the texts that are the presentation there is humor failure is. It's funny. I mean as long as nobody dies or get hurt. I think humor is important. I don't want to be a missionary of failure accepting failure without humor. Sure the people I have on this podcast are successful people who have had failure, and what have they done to us failures of catalyst, overcome it? And I'm I'm thinking in terms of, you know, again, that moment, let's, let's move on for a second to Colgate Palmolive or at the time, I guess, Colgate. And Bob or sewer Jeff comes up with the idea. I got it Colgate. Lasagna. Go ahead. Go ahead. Yes. And. In the grand literature, this failed products from Colgate, which is frozen dinners when I opened, I couldn't I original packaging from Colgate. So we created a replica based on the the miniature, so we're quite care about this is a reconstruction and yeah, I mean, Colgate they more or less denied this actually ever existed? But they also don't give us any more information about cease and desist. Did they say stop? We're going to see you not formally, but they I remember this is right after I opened the first museum into seventeen I was doing so many interviews. So I got phone call. It was a New York number. And I thought, oh, wow, this is something important, and I was excited about some high profile newspapers doing I represent Colgate like oh, shit. And all he said, was we this. We had Colgate, have no recollection of Colgate, lasagna. Yeah. Well, I understand because my inter made that replica, but this is what I've got this information. I have from, from literature, and all he said, was, we have no recollection of Colgate lasagna. Nope. But you had frozen dinners I made up the design. Yeah. You had other been can you send me some information, I wanna have the correct sort of uptick in the museum, and all these, it was we have no recollection of Colgate lasagna, a true politician with the American people. Don't want is a Colgate, lasagna. We don't remember I don't recall if it is a urban legend in the branding, that they could at least address. Hey, this is bullshit. Never existed. You know, this is wrong, but they haven't said that they specific as they didn't have gone. And of course, the irony isn't net. Crest has, you know, salmon, and couscous toothpaste. No, that's not true. I want to ask if you take the Colgate, lasagna you take all the big pen for her, which is essentially. Append that's different color. What, what, what are these companies learn? We just heard an example about the Colgate gay people giving some of availed denial, you go further with well polaroid learn this or Kodak learned, this is there is there a learning thing, or are you just putting the failures out there for people to see? Present at, at the museum each product reach item on display is presented, like, okay what, what was the idea? What did they want accomplish this, what was the was the excitement and expectation about? And then how did it say where did they fuck up and then present the information, and I don't wanna force the learning down the roads? It's there, there's the story of the product, and sometimes it's more, you know. Well describe sometimes it's not sometimes the pails are not due to the companies themselves. I mean I tried to for each object, actually what what can we learn from this? What's, what's the take home? So that's the doctor Samuel west take on it. But do companies what are your thoughts about companies in apologies? And did Google glass ever say we screwed up or another iteration is coming or they just have these failures? And they don't publicly knowledge in general. General leap it under the car. So there's very little learning going on just to ask about that. Like what do they learn from it if anything nothing and I would say that there's very few companies that actually make an effort to learn from their failures? I mean, they, they might you know, set up house committee or something into discuss it, but there's, there's very little actual learning going on. And you know what we don't do as humans you and me and other people, we don't sweep it under the carpet. We actually learn from our mistakes we try, and it's the same thing for individuals. I mean, when you fuck up in your, you know, whatever relationship does a parent or job, whatever you do you're doing we, it hurts. I mean failure. It's a it's not just a sensitive topic actually actually it's uncomfortable to. Thank you for my next Sigua. You said that you have to practice what you preach and that you get to apply some of this to yourself in un-unexpected way. Can you talk about this as, as it relates to the public bankruptcy that you are dealing with? When I started museum of failure. I had a business partner in old company that we had together when I applied for funding from the Swedish innovation authority, government money, I played for the money through company that we own together, and that came back to bite me in the ass when museum Pedic took off became successful. So then I got sued by my ex business partner, and the legal fees, etc. Were way out of control led to personal bankruptcy. So it's a consequence of anti fuck up in one way, what I have done differently, but it definitely has consequences is your background is kala just help you through that. Yeah. In many ways, because I am not my bankruptcy at something that just happened. It's not me. Interesting. And you know it's funny when I read about the bankruptcy in some ways bankruptcy is, is forgiveness. Like we're gonna forgive these debts. Right. We're gonna we're gonna Mark you or whatever they do. I'm wondering what your thoughts are on forgiveness and failure as well? This is not just for industrial failure, but personal failure. Forgiveness. Pacelle forgiveness of others. If you look at how, how do we react, when, when companies screw up even friend individuals when they do something when they screw up if you own it are very understanding that it's when you don't own it? The people start judging you, that's when you get that sort of negative mental part, doctor, same, it west. I, I hope that someday, one of my failures if not more than one, we'll get into the museum of failure, and the travelling exhibit. You're very look. I got I got some space, please keep a wall or an area of the museum open for me. Dr semi west. This has been an awesome couple of minutes to spend with you here. Thank you so much for participating in this very much. Hey, thanks so much for listening to art of failure.

Thanks Barry Friedman so much for our music and special thanks to everyone out there who has experienced failure at keeps moving forward. That's what we need to do. Let's remember that Winston Churchill defines success as the ability to move from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm. Stay enthusiastic keep moving. And I'll see next time.

Hour 1: And Then There Were 12

"Welcome to Spain. And fits the podcast it Spain advance on ESPN radio, the espionage and Sirius XM channel eighty sarahspain with you as always Jordan cornet is back again for this fry your show presented by progressive insurance. And we got some games to get to tonight. But I gotta talk about last night's Sweet Sixteen slate, and I'm glad that Jordan's back because we're gonna call this segment. Jordan. Explain your subject pegged it last night. Right. No, no. You weren't quite right on all. Let's take a little trip in the time machine back to Wednesday night. When Jordan was giving us all the goods on one of his favorites to go to the final four. Michigan. Michigan is as balanced on both sides of the basketball as you're going to see in his turnament. They've got a lot of weapons they're incredibly athletic. They do not make mistakes because they're coached by one of the grades in Giambi line Xavier Simpson at the point guard position. Dissect even the most intensive defenses and makes plays as a playmaker. Their ability to make shots how stout. They are defensively and how they don't make mistakes and give the ball away. They'll be unfazed by this defense. I got Michigan your own explain yourself. It was coded you missed what I was saying with the break down there. I got this one role. I was stunned and I was not looking forward to being held accountable and Friday like, I know Sarah, Spain would hold me. Look, I under- rated R downplayed I didn't underrate I knew Texas Tech defensively with stout. I knew how difficult is team was I didn't think they'd be able to score at the level. They did you know I under sold Jared Culver as being a top four three four pick in this NBA draft that I'd say he could have moved past potentially RJ Barrett. That's how good I think he is not just off this one game. But when you really watch he had twenty two points in this game. But let's talk about Michigan because I think I called them shot makers. And that's where the mistake would be made. Because clearly this Texas Tech defense was disruptive. Michigan was on their heels offense the entire game of three point line. The great equalizer in the game, not kind to Michigan. They made sixteen field goals. Thirty two percent and made one three point basket on nineteen attempts in mop-up time. I think they say you make one hundred percent of the shots. You don't take true? Michigan almost missed shots. One hundred percent of the shots. You don't even. Michigan missed one hundred percent of the shots that they took from three only making what look I looked at Xavier Simpson. I thought he'd be the calming force the point guard for the wolverines a guy who averages nearly seven assists per game was shook this defense. The perimeter was suffocating had him playing back away from the basket. Couldn't find those penetrating lanes. He had one assist. And if I only look at that Statoil, you the rest of the story because he sets the table for his guys the only guy on Michigan's team who seemed comfortable against his defense was the freshman Iggy brains aches, he had mild success to them a lot of shots to get to seventeen points while most of those dead calm went to the game is kinda out of hand. Tariq Owens is a guy that if I'm a GM at the next level. I'm looking at is the offense of game is so so, but as a rim protector, a great leaper who can change ins. There's a home for him at the next level. This Texas Tech team as a final four feel to them. There's no other way around it. I've never seen Michigan. Look this bad your Michigan fan. You didn't even expect this. And I know you had a rooting interest in that team. Yeah. I did tell you though that I was not nearly as confident in Michigan as you were. And I did not have them in my final four in any of my eleven teen brackets that was a consistent move. And all of my brackets was that. I I didn't like the way I saw Michigan give up big leads to MSU and some important games during the regular season. And so I just I didn't see it. I of course, did not see this happening forty four points. This game was tied six six nine minutes in and you knew what was going to be one of those that comes down to these are eighteen to twenty two year olds. And when the eighteen to twenty two year olds shots are going in like they weren't for Michigan your little less interested in defending. You're not as energetic on that side. You're not calling out screens like your customer. You're not switching with the what the fervor that you typically do when you're banging down shots. The lackluster performance the fruitless efforts time and time again on the offense of side. It was a domino effect defensively in Texas Tech. Look, it wasn't a great offensive night for them by any means only. Made six threes shot a very average forty-three percent from the field to little bit above average. But it was a blow out you get sixty three points at a tournament game. I don't expect that to be a twenty point win. But that's how good that defense was. And we know the old adage defense wins championships get into that later because I want to ask you if you if you had the chance of taking Texas Tech d versus Gonzaga offense, which unit do you want? But I want to continue with this segment which once again is Jordan, explain yourself. It's sarahspain Jordan cornet Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio. Let's hear what you thought about that Purdue Tennessee matchup here. He is Carson Edwards is a flat out star this team of spreads out the shoot the three fundamentally sound they capture their box outs. They're opportunistic in the open floor. They could operate in the half court. They can win games in the sixties. They could turn around win games in the eighties. It's a versatile squad. I think it's one of map painters best that he's ever had there. That's why I think they could be making a final four run. Yeah. You're welcome, sir. You get off my back now. If they weren't playing a team like, Tennessee. Oh, that's a shame. That is a shame. Dr by voice, there wasn't going on had it Aniela. You talk too much you end up. Get yourself in trouble. I should've just laid out theirself right out of that pick. That's what they always tell me. Jordan, less is more. Put a truly been more that look I told you I produce good. I told you why Purdue was going to be there. This game was over those Sarah. Hello Monte, turn enough out onto three I would have been prophetic. In everything I said, how good Purdue is how great Carson Edwards is produce ability to win in the sixties the eighties. Heck the nineties how this map painters. Best team ever. I didn't expect Ryan Klein to go off for guy who averages twelve game more than double his average. He was lights out, but Tennessee did just enough except over zealous on. What was a foul? I don't care what anybody says Carson Edwards was found on a three what I continue to watch over and over again with that sequence is how Carson didn't stand put his feet his heels on on the line to be out of bounce, right? He was on his toes. Now. Here's the thing. Did you think it was about? I thought I actually agree with what I heard Jay Bilas, San Stephen a Smith show today, which was if you put thirty rests in a room, and you told them it was called the foul. They would all explain why if you put thirty other f- syndrome, you told them it wasn't called. It was a no call. They would explain why it's one of those who could have gone either way. But I think you have to leave him. Mm to land. That's the rare was no room to land. So it doesn't matter. Whether it's the first minute of the game or the last second of the game you call the call correctly. Which is what they did. I got no argument there. It's just unfortunate. Because look a lot say Turner did not impact the three point shot. Carson Edwards was going to miss that off balance. Conference or not it's not going to happen. So what else say is if the calls not made I'm not going to sit there and mourn with Purdue fans at say they were robbed because Carson had words was out. What I would say was he got a clean look. He's one of the best players in the countries. And all American he missed the shot. And that's what it comes down to that. You make that three win the game. However by the letter of the law Turner him well, and it's tough to feel too bad for Tennessee because you had an overtime. And I thought they'd be fine and time because how they were able to re they should have been there. They got beaten this game. And then they turned it around cut into that eighteen point deficit, and when you do enough to get there, even though you can't close it in regulation. I still felt like Tennessee's back. They got back into this thing. Don't win it and extra five and that didn't happen. Yeah. And I wonder if there is any sort of mental component to believing. It had the game won realizing whether or not they believe that was the correct call maybe just frustration in in a poor choice on that play at that sending them. Into the overtime dejected because I believe produce scored eight of the first eleven points or something in the extra session. Just started. You knew it was over. Look, you're like what was it? A heptathlete is as Iraq nailed it. So you're the most truest of athletes. You're in. So you all sports, but you also played basketball one time you're like there is nothing to me. That's more pressing in terms of having. Ice innovations right, then to miss the first free of arson Edwards, dead and everybody. You saw us the CUDA waste was mom. I said, oh, no. This is going to be one of those moments. They'll never live down and then to make the next two free throws. You know, what I should have thought that point? That's the turning point actually when I played high school basketball the other girl on my team who we shared MVP honors. She was she she went onto playing college. Her dad made a video recapping the season for everybody. And you think oh that's nice only the highlights he elected to show a game in which I made one of two free throws and the other one if I had made it would've tied they gave insensitive to overtime, and he put in the background. It takes two to make a thing. Go right. Wow. End of the year highlight can we get a legend? I mean or worse. How about just some highlights takes for joke. Hey, if it's a little. The senior you weren't motivating for next year. So you're still old enough to get this like seventh grade high school, but we need that inter interrupting our series of highlights was just me I've been cursed by this song ever said haunting me you.

Sarahspain in Jordan cornet Spain and Fitz Jordan had to explain himself for Wednesday's picks next. We'll give him a chance to redeem himself picking tonight. It's Spain in bits ESPN radio and the SPN. We don't want Jordan to shut up. He is an expert on these things you can't get them. All in fact, nobody gets them all even that neuroscientist or neuro psychologist or wherever that guy was who had the perfect bracket is no longer Paducah Purdue broke his bracket role. So real quick very quickly. There was a girl. Well, that parents also had a perfect bracket that I saw local news did a coverage of put it was handwritten. And the mom's like, I promise she wrote it before. What's her name? Becky. Yeah. Exactly. Promise. This was home also gave a hundred dollars and a coupon to bed bath and beyond to the news station to get it covered. So I mean, I sorry. I mean, I'm not saying, I know for sure that the girl didn't have it. Right. But you gotta put it on the computer. No one's buying the promise. She wrote this out before more buffets given. Employees to scratch marks here. Got worn had it all nailed it. Jordan cornet filling in for fits with Sarah Spain, all of our guests appear via the shell Pennzoil performance line. And that audio was on the Westwood One NCW radio network as the Sweet Sixteen continues tonight. We're going to give Jordan a chance to redeem himself with a couple more games. Let's start with the number three LSU still without their coach. Will Wade some thought that that would have a greater effect on them? And yet they seem to be powering through facing up against a team that many think has a deep run 'em in Michigan state. How do you see this one game? Look LSU's playing phenomenal basketball right now. LSU squeaked by a couple of games in this moment, but yet still survived and that's allowed for advancement. I look at this game. I looked at the point guard position in this cash us Winston who I love her stray waters who wins that battle will be very interesting. This was going to be about the paint. LSU's a team that does not do a lot of damage from the three point line. They get at the rim. The only team that does it better scoring at the rim as Duke LSU's ability to finish around the rim challenge. Michigan state's front. Line. Second chance opportunities who's gonna win the backboard Michigan state at times, which you would think is never a problem for them. But has been allowing second chance opportunities LSU feasts on offensive rebounds. So there's a little checks and balances here when LSU blitzes the offensive glass that could lead to transition opportunities for caches Winston and Michigan state. So the balance of offense of rebounds transition points for Michigan state how that ebbs and flows throughout this game. But ultimately, look at the matchup of Nick ward and is rebound low. I look at trae waters and caches Winston who best wombs there. And in terms of finishing in the pink is both teams do it. Well, who wins those battles all that being said? A part of me wants to say LSU wins this game. I know we're recording. This. I'm going to go with Michigan state because I believe the best player on floors. Caches Winston the last time. Michigan state won a national championship was nineteen years ago. And their point guard was a very very special and on that team. And this guy is just like him. Mac leaves right there, by the way for those. I love you hedged, your bets by saying I wanna pick LSU, but I'm going that way. No matter what part of that. We play you can say, I mean, I had it. I had it Cuarto educate you kick anything. Reality dummy, the lawyer on around the horn today do come from a family of lawyers. Yeah, you're not going to get one past me. Let's let's stick in that region for the later game Virginia Tech at the number one seed and do this is a game. A lot of people are pointing to a previous meeting to massive stars were out for that one. I think it's really hard to use that previous game as any kind of indication of what happens tonight to massive stars because everyone talks about Zion Williamson play that game. But let's not forget, Justin Robinson, the heart and soul of Virginia. Tech was to out Zeile Williams returned even bigger batter better just the Robinson's not necessarily the same player. But he gives us Virginia Tech team a ton. Everybody says the blueprints been laid out. Thanks to UCF of how to beat Duke. Okay. Can convey taco fall just transferred? 'cause we gotta go into Blacksburg all week. They allowed for a rare mid tournament transfer. Yeah. So as you hear there from there's no seven foot, six guy on Virginia Tech. Conversely, it's the extreme opposite side their biggest guys six ten and carry blacks year after that everybody goes about six five six four six three six two an on doubt. So in that front. Everybody says the blueprint is a have a rim protector like taco fault. They do not possess challenge. Trae Jones, George gold wire to be shooters for Duke, heck, all of them, really. But by all accounts, protect the rip Virginia Tech does to that. Very well, so it's gotta be an all out blitz. Offense away from Duke to get to the rim and finish there. But what Virginia Tech has at UCF did not have and UCF was able to do some damage from three point line? Thanks reductions Virginia Tech is blessed with shooters permanent shooter's at every position on the floor. All five guys three point threats. They space you out, and they'll challenge the defense Duquense take a risk at a passing lane that could go the other way and be a three point shot with an open. Look Virginia Tech. Would be magnificent from three point line. They got hit double figure threes. And they've got to do what they can at the rim. I think Kerry black here gonna get foul trouble. I think Duke wins this one by double figures. I agree with you. I don't feel as much concern as many do because I think it's a completely different game. Was I in back in and with something to prove from that last time sarahspain Jordan cornet Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio ESPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty breaking down. Tonight's games. Let's move over to the mid west region. The first game a six thirty central seven thirty eastern start Auburn at North Carolina. A fascinating match up of two teams that wanna ratio Jared. Harper Bryce Brown or three point wizards for this Auburn team they live and die by the three point shot. It's what carries this team if they get hot there, though, hang around in this one Auburn, I don't think has the firepower to keep up with this North Carolina offense, North Carolina is a blur in the open floor off makes they go and most especially off MRs go. Watch Kobe white tonight watch how he plays for this team another guy, I don't know necessarily if he's going to be a great pro. But I know in the college game he has been phenomenal. This is the guy that makes them go of Zion. Williamson doesn't play in the ACC college basketball for that matter. This guy's the headliner the kids all the attention, the garners all the headlines highlights I love how he plays. But my focus gonna be on Kenny Williams defensively the guard for North Carolina how he can guard and limit guys like Bryce Brown like a Jared Harper. Kenny defend the three point line take that away. Run them off make them drivers. As you look at this. When the seer little is he healthy enough to give them the lift that he's given them in the first two games averaging better nineteen points per game. We'll have to see there. But all in all I just think when you've got the level of talent the North Carolina has it simply Trump's when Auburn brings it's the back court with Auburn. It's five six seven eight guys with North Carolina. And for that reason, I go tar heels. So you mentioned that they both like to play a fast pace so night. There's going to try to slow the other one down. But auburn. Does it differently with the three whereas North Carolina tries to get you in the paint. And North Carolina is out rebounding. Other teams by twenty-five in the tournament up. So if Auburn can keep up on the glass that gives them a chance it Carolina sweeps them on the glass, and then they can get those transition points that you talked about that's going to be thirty minutes. It might be close. But those last ten right should go. Carolina's Auburn on the other hand, though, they have turned over their opponent one out of every four possessions in the tournament, which is huge. So if they can get those deals, and they can give them self possession via that versus the revenge. We look at Kobe white is he gonna play like freshmen or is gonna play like Kobe white. I think it will be the ladder. And for that reason. I think Carolina rolls. All right. Our last game. We'll make this one quick. This is my upset. Actually. I don't I don't think it's going to happen. But I said today around the horn if anybody is is looking over their shoulder the most in this one it's Kentucky at Houston. Houston picks you up at the three point line. They pack it in. This is a team that's leading the nation in field goal percentage. Three point percentage defense, they aren't super big. But they're they're long, and they have a lot of muscle down there. Beautiful basketball team to watch Armani. Br. Is a score on his team at the wing position. Corey davis. One of the best two way players in league Robinson sets the pace. I love at backward. Those three guys that I just mentioned they've got servicemen down low her very good led by Fabian, white. They do everything right? They can play fast. It can operate in the half court. They can rebound. They can defend for Kentucky who's PJ Washington going to be a PJ Washington place. It gives them that Goto basket down. Low slows down a defense gives you guaranteed offense allows Kelvin Johnson to be that wing special player and allows everybody else to play off of him guys. Like Tyler hero to bring bang down. The three point shot PJ Washington plays at high level Kentucky wins this PJ Washington. Plays managed minutes and isn't much of a factor. I give it to Houston. I think PJ Washington will play minimum minutes or not be as much of an impact guy for that reason. I think Houston is gonna win this game. I got it on tape. Jordan's that scheduled to begin anytime soon, but we're gonna have them call what we're gonna make him for team himself or answer for himself. ESPN MBA report him leak Andrews is gonna join us next on Spain and Fitz. Phyllis in on Janas. It to compose injury. And how the bucks are going to handle the rest of the regular season. It's next ESPN radio in the SPN Yana Santa Toco goes out with an ankle injury. And leaves a lot of questions for this, Milwaukee Bucks. Team already plagued by injuries with six or eight games left in the regular season. And a first place seat on the line and the health of a superstar in the postseason on the line as well it Spain and fits sarahspain Jordan cornet filling in for Fitz on ESPN radio ESPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty we are presented by progressive insurance. Let's head out to the shell Pennzoil performance line where Melinda Andrews ESPN NBA report reporter covering the midwest joins us Melita. I just how serious to the bucks. Think this injury is. You know, Sarah, the bucks are pretty optimistic. This is just a tweak. What it seems like last night? When I was at the game was that, you know, there's eight minutes left in the fourth quarter and Janas he went down he dunked, which she does all the time. And he was retreating to get back on defense. And he looked like he stepped on Garrett temple foot with that right foot? And he just re tweaked that ankle that he hurt about two weeks ago. He missed two games after tweaking it initially against the Sixers, then he sat out against the Lakers. He's out out against the Cavaliers, and then he came back and last night when I asked him about it. I said did you feel like you even got back to one hundred percent after that initial ankle sprain? And he said, no, you know, it usually guys this four five six games. But I love to play. I really wanted to come back. And so I'm still working on getting my strength back from that initially goal, and he sort of beneficial ankle injury. And he's sort of tweaked it a little bit in every game. Then, you know. You know on the heels of what we saw the big fella for Portland Norwich kitchen that awful gruesome injury Belika a compound leg fracture that has him out indefinitely a blazers team that's playing for something out west. How is this? Not a this is our guy. He's in the race for him VP. We know what he means to us. There's six games left. Maybe the one seat is in the most important thing. But the preservation of our guy let's without question. Sit about the rest of the regular season. Is there that thought it seems like there's no clear decision. And they're trying to play this guy even in that game. Well, because I wouldn't want to be the person who stands in between the honest and getting back onto the court. He is I mean if she can play he will play he argues with bud coach, Mike gluten holder sometimes but says, hey, I really don't think he should play tonight. Yada, says no, no good. Let me play this g he lives and breathes to get back on the basketball court, and we'll push and shove to do. So now, sometimes the medical staff have to. Weekly say, okay, honest, you need to sit down you absolutely cannot play tonight. But if there's a will there's a way for him. And so key when we ask them that question last night, we could you know, is there do you wanna be wrapped in bubble wrap that for the rest of the regular season. He said, no, I don't even wanna sit against the Atlanta Hawks again, which they team hasn't ruled out that that will not happen. But that's still being said, you honest. I mean, he just he says, you know, be you know, I want to get back out on the court. You know, I wanna play, and I just wouldn't be the person that I I wouldn't want to be a person who stands between him, and that how much do you think this is about him wanting to be a leader and proved to the guys like, hey, not proved him because he's proven plenty. But show them like on the race. Do you think that's what it is? I don't know to me. Listen, I get what Maliki sing. But if the differences, you stand in front of a guy and say, you have to sit because we need you for the postseason. I don't care how much she wants to play. I don't care I'll hungry his to play. You don't need him straying by that though. Do you think he's driven? I think he's driven by competitiveness. Probably a bit of the MVP race and not wanting to be held back. Even if it's the best thing for me. I think boondoggles and everybody else needs to stand in front of him and say we already have enough guys on the injured list. We need you to be as good as possible to make up for those guys that aren't going to be there when the plan could do you think Sarah might be honest with the MVP portion of this thought, I think you're absolutely does want to be MVP more than potentially. He lets on. It's not his style to go out and peacock about things like that. That's just not who he is that being said, though, this is a guy. Remember they had to he slept in the gym when he first thought to know on he he like he he's a little bit. There's a little bit of some some some the bolts that are shaky up there, and he just loves this so much. Absolutely. He's partly driven by the MVP rates. But also like for them. It's a win that he don't under sleeps in the gym for them is a win that on what mud calls. Lockout days Yatta is still goes to Jim. They're not supposed to be in there on lockout days when he they can actually get you honest to follow the rules and not go to the gym on those. As he builds a home gym because he couldn't get into that gym. So when he actually follows that protocol and follows those rules, they consider that a win and also used to remember that last year, Jason Kidd. I mean, he played this guy so many minutes now he's in the thirties consistently. So Jaanus he says, you know, you'll better at this time this year than I did at this time last year and part of that is just because of the miles on his body, and they are taking so much extra care to make sure that he is good to go in the playoffs. But he has been plagued with those knee and ankle injury kind of all the way through. But I mean, it's a combination of the MVP, and they want the ones that you honest bet it last night they said he said when we play at home, we are pretty unbeatable. So that is that does play a factor in all of this Maliki Andrews NBA reporter for SPN ESPN one thousand covering the mid west you can follow her at Melita underscore Andrews. Yeah. I mean, the seating right now in the east is not as important because those six seven eight teams are so tight you don't yet know which one of you ever going to. I'd be more scared of the nets than the pistons or the heat myself, but you can't decide who you wanna face in the easel state never worried about last year. But that's that's what they're they're thinking bigger, which is wanting home advantage throughout to not just in east yet. And then when you look at the final six games they have a couple with the nets a couple with the hawks. They've got a tough tough to in the thunder and the Sixers how competitive do you think they could be over? The course of those games. They only need to win to right because they've got a four game lead in six games left. Correct. They number two. And if the raptors lose one of those and they only need to win one so quiet out in the bowl. So you know, who knows what happened there? But yeah, I mean this they should their end of season schedule. They have three games on the road, three games at home. So they should be able to pull out that one seat, especially if Chris Middleton is criminal played amazing last night. But that kind of got over overlooked because Jaanus went down with that injury. So if she could be kind of clicking on all of those Bill Anders the way he was they might not eat us to secure up that one of air blood. So can play the way he did against Houston. They may not need to walk up that one, but they all kind of feed off of Janas energy and play better with he's on the court. I wouldn't be surprised to see them go, you know, four and two five and one this last stretch. I mean, they are really on a roll they already formidable team, and we will then see if that translates to the playoffs because they don't have a ton of playoff experience, collectively. And so can this kind of regular season run translate there? And will they get some of these guys back, Nicole Amirah Tich, Malcolm brogden, those sorts of guys will they come back and be able to make an impact in the way that they did before they went out. Awesome stuff Melita enjoy enjoy Milwaukee and have some beers for us and. Good stuff as always, absolutely. Thank you Sarah Maliki Andrews on the shell Pennzoil performance line. Coming up we've seen collegiate players transfer schools, but we've never seen an entire band change schools. Will explain it next Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio and the espionage, you may or may not recognize this as the Ohio State fight song. And you may or may not have recognized the Ohio State pep band wearing Colgate gear for Colgate. March madness basketball game it's made in bed. Sarahspain Jordan cornet filling in for Fitz on ESPN radio and ESPN app. And this story was my FaceTime on around the horn today 'cause I found myself unreasonably, irate, perhaps it was because I was an AllState clarinetist. Also, the plot thickens forever a band. Geek. So that I want stand up for band members, perhaps loyalty school spirit and doing right by people that have done right by you is important to me loyalty, I say and Kyle road house of the Colgate pep band posted and started the conversation around the Colgate athletic department, hiring members of the Ohio State pep band to wear Colgate gear and perform at the highest level for this Colgate team in a moment that should have been for the Colgate pep band members who just like the basketball team work all year long toward a goal of this. Thrilling and exciting possibility of performing at the national level during March madness, the number of reasons that were given for why the Atlantic department decided to forsake its own band favor of a bunch of frauds included that there weren't enough people because there's only twenty but there's only allowed to be twenty nine. Nine. So if they brought their own pep band. They would have been close to the limit or they could have just hired an additional nine member more of Ohio State versus they were even at times looking at getting a high school band instead of bringing their own collegiate band, then they claimed well, they weren't always at every game to which that's fair the pep band director said it was often attributable to poor weather conditions that pose damage to instruments, and he expressed frustration that the athletic concern over attendance was never communicated to them. I think that there's a point in. Why weren't they every game? But we don't know the specifics or how many games they missed. And if that was bothering them something should have been said before merely ignoring and by the way, they were not given an offer to attend. They were not even told about this. In fact, the Ohio State members who played in their stead. We're told that Colgate doesn't have a band. Which is real rushing is exactly. Does it get worse? It does get worse. Then the justification was potentially that it was about the cost as it turns out, the NC double A provides funding for bands cheer teams and mascots to attend instead of using the money for its intended purposes, the athletic department, instead excluded the pep band and opted to hire a local band even asking that high school band. So to me the natural question too is, but wait when Colgate played Tennessee, they played them closely, by the way, I saw Colgate cheerleaders there. Those were no house feature leaders. They spent the money to send in the cheerleaders. Why this is the pep band that bad their attendance that they didn't want. That's what they send them by bringing them is the pep band bad. Right. They're trying to hide. Here's the thing. Keep it simple. Play the heads. I'm sure they can play the fights off shrinkage of shot that can pace loopy or whatever you gotta play. Right. They can play you know, some sort of beyond say turned marching band pep song. It's insulting to them to have a pep band. And then not let them play at the highest level. And to add insult to injury. The social media team posted to Instagram. One more time for the greatest fans in the world. With a photo of members of the fake Ohio State band wearing core goal goal gate gear. And then when the Colgate people started commenting, they kept deleting the comments and this guy from the band said at least eleven calmer. Over two hours were all deleted almost as soon as he could post it. And then eventually they took the whole post down. And then the official Colgate athletics Twitter account tweeted to the Ohio State band thanking them for being quote, nearly the winning edge, sir. I'm gonna warn you might be falling on the sword for public enemy number one up there and call gates campus. Clearly this band is not like, clearly, they're not loyal. Clearly, there's some group that can't believe you're taking the side this many layers of coal gates so against the ban when they'd come out and say the cheerleaders. They were loyal. They were there from start to finish. You know, what they're going to join it on a celebration span. Shaming sounds like your breath rank it's banned shaming. I think it's your standard band. Geeks not being appreciated talented. And guess what? Those are going to be Rockstars L observed they're going to get some serious from across and they're going to be successful popular. Sex. Getting superstars. The awkward age. I'll tell you what I'll tell you. What this one time fan Kim. Okay. Let's go there. Yeah. No, no. I'm good. I'm good. Honestly, this story made me really sad. Whenever the reasons are to end, listen, if you're not going to bring them, then you say before this happens. Unfortunately, we don't think your attendance or the level of your quality of play is up to the standard of performance at the national level. We are going to bring in a different band told me don't just have them turn on the TV and see a bunch of frauds. We're in their stuff to me. The worst thing about it is is this is much like Colgate soon. The same thing Bradley did. And what I mean by that Bradley bears were another team and been at a tournament ages. Colgate hasn't been there at twenty three years since the Donald foil days, both these programs both both both the Bradley bears and his Colgate basketball team should be celebrating the fact that they're in a place. They traditionally don't arrive at playing in the big dance. So including the band, so. Cloak fraternity Bradley had the issue with their head coach Brian Warno did not want their writer who covered the team for twenty nine years. I was massive it mutate because he didn't promote the brand eight Bradley. Hey, colgate. Stay in your lane. Celebrate this huge win. Don't try and be bigger than you are neither of you have a brand so bring the band allow the writer in and celebrate your dancing because you know, what it's going to last for a day, and it's going to be over. Yeah. Because you know, it's sad Wesley Roberts. Who's on the Ohio State band tweeted? Colgate doesn't have a basketball band to send out. So they asked the Ohio State ban to help out. It was a great game cited. This is the enthusiasm that was meant for the band members of Colgate. What you stay sarahspain. She's with you. Hey, you know, what never goes out of style.

How the midterm elections could shape tech policy

"This. Marketplace podcast is brought to you by Colgate. University now in its bicentennial year. Colgate university is celebrating a proud tradition of intellectual rigor at it's beautiful campus in central New York. The deadline for early decision this November fifteenth. Learn more at Colgate dot EDU. Net neutrality broadband policy privacy, the midterms could be major for tech from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy Hollywood. I managed to avoid it for two whole days, but the mid-term elections actually could have a big impact on the tech industry because the backlash against big tech is one of the only issues out there that is actually bipartisan and on top of that a couple of newly elected legislators have specifically made tech part of their agenda Beit net neutrality privacy regulations or even whether platforms are suppressing political voices. So let's dig into this in quality assurance the segment where we take a deeper look at a big tech story is he lebowski is a senior writer for wired covering, politics and national affairs. She says both sides of the aisle have been considering ways to regulate big tech in recent years. The problem is anytime you have a split congress. When you have Democrats running the house and Republicans running the Senate and a Republican in the White House. You're going to have a hard time getting anything done. So just imagine the amount of gridlock. We're about to head into. And then you see are Democrats really going to want to hand. Donald Trump a major piece of legislation terrain in the tech industry. When in so many ways they're trying to act as a check on his administration who are some of the incoming legislators that could at least try to have a hand in shaping policy. Well, there's one incoming legislator who will be familiar to the tech industry because she was formerly a member of the house that Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee. She is sort of infamous for her ties to the telecom industry, which has often put her at odds with the tech industry on issues, like network neutrality and privacy. We also have Josh Hawley who unseated Claire mccaskill he was the attorney general in Missouri. And he as attorney general launched investigations into Google Facebook Uber equifax and a lot of it had to do with data privacy issues. A lot of it had to do with antitrust issues. I think you could expect him to continue to bring those issues to congress. And then the big race. Everybody was watching was Ted CNN. Cruise beta a work race baiter work was heavily backed by members of the tech industry. Ted Cruz has sort of been a needle in the side of the tech industry. So I think you do see this growing coalition of anti tech voices on the right? You know, it's interesting because congress in particular, the Senate hasn't always been the most well informed bunch when it comes to tech. And I wonder with all of these kind of young up and coming candidates getting elected to the house. Do you think that there's a possibility that the conversations about technology could get more sophisticated? That's a really interesting question. So on the first hand, I'll say that. I think members of the Senate are learning. But I think there's something to that. I think there's something to having people in the Senate who really understand at a fundamental level technology. I've even heard from people, you know, as critical as they are of Marsha Blackburn. And as fearful as they are of her being in the Senate, you know, at least she is somebody who understands these issues, and so maybe that's a starting point. Is he lebowski is a senior writer for wired covering, politics and national affairs. She also said we shouldn't get our hopes up for net neutrality legislation coming out of congress anytime soon, but a federal privacy law has an outside chance. And now for some related links after twenty thousand employees walked out of Google last week to protest how the company has handled sexual misconduct claims yesterday, Google agreed to some of the demands those employees are making the big one, it's ending forced arbitration. So when people report sexual harassment, the company won't insist that such claims be handled internally and more importantly, it can't prevent victims from taking their claims to court. All right back to the midterms for a minute. I already threated about this. But I think it's worth repeating even if congress doesn't get a lot tech year after the midterms. It is definitely getting scienc- year ports. That's a thing. Of course, had a nice right up on all the scientists who are coming into congress who just can't help but make it smarter and actually politicos morning tech newsletter. Yesterday had a super useful rundown. On key staffers who will probably be handling changes to telecom and tech policy. Assuming anything makes it through our divided. Congress and remember last week when we talked to Salesforce, CEO, Mark Benny off about prophecy in San Francisco the tax on big businesses that will raise money to help the homeless. Well, it passed and the ringer has a really good right up on how it's really a referendum on big tech. Basically, San Francisco just can't wait to stick it to this industry.

Eight hundred seventy three. Cbc or Tweet Me Action Kramer. We're Corona Virus Twenty four seventy days and this purgatory could be with us until this epidemic runs. Its course sure. Hope it does while we wait for that to happen. Any Day can be colored by reports out of China on the number of people hospitalized. The number release the number who died. That's why the markets seem so whistles today delving tipping twenty five points. Spf Wendy percent. Now it's important to percents which is good a place as Eddie to roll out our game plan for next week. I as know. We're closed Monday for Presidents Day but China's very much open. I fear another awful set of statistics use antiquated Chinese authorities. But I don't know why more people though says they don't know what to do. They want people to go back to work. They want the GDP up. They don't want to let people down so the toll key to discouraging but the whole world is hang on these numbers because if this operate goes Pale he could turn to an existential crisis for the globe. If it gets there you'll have executives fearing not just for the coverage but for the laws that's right the very laws. I think the new infections will keep climbing. And it'll colored Tuesday's trading but again remember what I said from the very beginning. No one listened to me. Trust no numbers out of China Gold Trust them. What else Madison Tuesday Walmart reports? This also comes with an analysts beating. This now earns a bunch of people predict analysts. Predict this week that the quarter might be week. Although that's not clear to me at all I think much of their worrying goes back to targets disappointing results but if anything. I'm betting Walmart gain market share from target as lots of good things to say. We want to know how much they'll be hurt by the China's slow down and pick through their supply team we disrupt the important foods domestic. They've got a huge amount of business. That's that is from domestic source. But they have a lot of China now. Maybe you don't WanNa bet something something. So how about now case you bet on Mitch. Chronic medtronic member the medical device maker. We see them. We got to San Francisco. Now this is going to be the last conference call for the legendary. Ceo Omar Schroeck. And I expect it to be real. Good he's made shareholders a ton of money. In his time Wednesday. We might learn what this network plans to do with the assis buying for next to nothing from sprint. T. Mobile now I. They pledged to build out a wireless Debra can. I think we need some partners to make that happen. Or maybe we'll just tell us about the quarter in teasers about the future that could be now. We also hear from balanced health. And that's a company forming on his values and they come in all the time and this things become a reliable fixture in the growth stock community ever since Joe. Papa came in the CEO to fix the now. He's developed the habit of making the numbers. So unless bash reports are real bad day for the corona virus. I think the stock can go higher. Now we've seen some incredible moves in the semi stocks. Haven't we haven't witnessed invidia boring today? If you're amazing quarter we're going to spend more time talking about in video later this show how about analog devices. Api while it's nowhere near as is video. It's been consistent winner thanks to its Internet of things exposure kind of the manufacturing industrial semi. Then there's a Longo Alma health and I've been a big fan of wet as you know it's another animal health play but it's had been moved along on the other hand not as good as lettuce right but it's been a bit of a of a spun off and I like the odds on this one at this point. I'm not fan of oil to put it mildly. The stocks have been abysmal performers. Both because there's glide but also be his. Wall Street now cares about sustainability. Nearly every day that goes by we hear more stories about divestments and that block is gaining steam. The fossil fuel stocks tend to have no grow dicey balances especially for natural gas horrific fundamentals pressure naturalist. Kim Look at it. But there's one growth oil company. I actually want to listen to you. And that's pioneer not buying natural resources. We should push close now. These guys are always played straight. They'll give us the real skinny where the industry is headed. I trust them. I know lots of people are bonded about this negative stance when fossil fuels if you own stocks so if you hate hearing bad things about the industry well put your hands over your ears is. I'm doubling down right now. From energy transfer partners eating the giant pipeline company a same day. And I think you'll be able to figure out that we simply have too much pipe for ATP's own good. Now I also want to make further point says a very high yield and yet I worry about the size of that you'll given what's been going on in the AMMO situation. Avoid the stock well Thursday Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings reports. I think it said to say that the past is not prologue cruise industry right now. This whole industry is in crisis. You got a cruise ship quantity off the coast of Japan. It's filled with people to me. The Japanese you're making human guinea pigs for the krona virus number allowed off. Another ship was stranded. Asian wars didn't even have the virus. It was rejected by five ports until Cambodia. Generously allowed them in. I'm wondering just how many reservations have been canceled because the Disease Chapman crucible DEMOC. So how can you this Norwegian your? I think it's too risky. You know before the Corona I did like this very much but I want them to make the case. We also get results from one of the worst performers in my travel. Trust the embarrassing Viacom. Cbs Viacom finally merged with CBS. Reuniting after fifteen years separation I never would have guessed we had a first class ticket shareholder hale is incredible how this company has done when it said it set out to do to everything. It's it's it said emerged of the wall. Street considered impossible but it stock is probably the most hated the S. and P. Five hundred will why. Because it's all about cord cutting and people cutting the court that combination is. What attracted me to the but these days Viacom CBS. What more to entice other shareholders? Until then I'm talking about a broken stock you want consistency vote for American. Let you power con Ed which important warning respectively. These are two of the three best utility stocks along with Dominion Energy. Who we're going to hear from very night. I kinda napier absolutely worth owning ahead of the quarter but those talks have been smoke in all right. We hear from dominance to it. I want to know if the company still under pressure from these cheap on online delivery platforms. I'm talking about posts. Door DASH to privately held companies can afford to burn through cash because they're playing with venture capital money. The competitions hurt them but the action in the stock. Typically today for Domino's tells me that maybe there's some good things happening. It has traded incredibly wellness week. Now here's one that you know I've been behind. It's been struggling of late. Then toss booth and be able to pull out its tailspin. This was my favorite healthcare real estate investment. Trust re come under Farley. Because as MRS own forecasts thanks to an oversupply of nursing homes at least on the APP. Listen we missed it. I'm betting your deb. Cafaro gets the story back on track. She's historically been a bankable chief executive plus ventanas pay you a five point three percent yield to wait for the turn that I think deb is going on in gym. Cyber-security security stocks have become a little problematic plate now one of my favorite Z scaler reports after the close and its stock has been sneaking back up after some real turbulence makes sense to me. This killer does cloud scurry and I think that remains a hot area I think the Z. Scaler is going to be fine. I really do. I know I was cyber was a bummer. And didn't didn't that that well but I think this was finally. Friday brings us to deer and regular viewers know that I'm partial to the former equipment maker. Worries me though is that the corona virus has the whole agricultural complex. Stole who've been doing terribly but never fear. This is an election year and in election years. Farmers tend to get big handouts even bigger than these little subsidies bottom line as we head into next week. Remember every night. China puts out new corona virus numbers. They may be fiction. They may be fact. Probably something in between but the Rossi doesn't matter until the outbreak burns itself out the corona statistics and not earnings will continue to control the day to day action. I need to go to Bob in Michigan Bob. Jim Thanks for taking my call. I'm a longtime investor but only a recent convert to Jimmy Kill. But I'm wondering about Merck. It's been such a good performer for two three years now but they recently announced a spin off of some of their products or new company their stock prices off the coast of ten dollars from their fifty. Two Week is but fails forty five percent. So I'm unsure. What's next is this a buying opportunity or I have said Bob that it was not a buying opportunity and I'M GONNA change my mind right here when it got to three percent yield. That was enough for me by Merck at three point. Spying Saint Murky three percent with fourteen audible. I am ready to position now. The world is hang on these a grown virus numbers. That's really what people talk about. Expect those to color all of next week screen trouble in Toyland. Well I gotTa tell you. We've got Mattel. Wanted and Tomlin after earnings is a red flag or is it a buying opportunity. But then there's plenty of unknowns in this barking so which defensive plays could be worse circling back to you know themselves the group. I've got an unlikely one that you really like and demanding just committed to reaching net zero emission by twenty fifty. I'll find out what that means for the stock when I sit down with the CEO.

Llc MEMBER NYSE SIPC gotten to the ICONIC toymaker Barbie Hot Wheels Fisher Price Puerta seemingly solid quarter last night while they're salesmen tad light down three percent year over year. They still delivered a terrific eight cents. Earnings beat all three phases nationals full year forecast looked impressive. Initially mattel stock soared in after hours. It was up. Five percent of one point makes sense but then the enthusiasm faded stock coping flat and then by ten thirty editor negative and fish. They down three percent of the problem. According to some analysts this was a low quality. Most of the gains here are coming from Costco's now from any strength in the toy business which is in rough shape. My you look tells you turn yourself around if they can generate much better than expected. Profitability was slightly subpar sales. Well who knows I will do when the revenues go up. So could it be worth buying into this this? Let's start with being on cry. Mattel get more incentives confusing. Where TURNAROUND MR CHRIST? Welcome back to money. Thank you Jim. It's great to be here okay. So here's I'm GonNa Pause it something you take it. I think people misunderstanding. What's happening. You cleaned up everything including costs in twenty nine thousand nine hundred twenty beginning with the net flicks mattel deal you are now playing offense absolutely right. Two Thousand Nineteen was an inflection. Point in our turnaround we stabilize topline. After five years of consecutive decline we manage to significantly improve profitability and became positive free cash flow for the first time in three years. So the turnaround is working and when it comes to our revenue performance. We actually grew revenue in every geographical region and in five out of the six categories where we operate so. We're very happy with the performance. We grew market share in the fourth quarter and retain our global leadership position for the year. Now you have what I would describe as being a very attractive entertainments slate when I first met you. You were saying that. Michelle is going to be a platform when I see for instance a masters of the universe series coming. I'm thinking this is what's going to spur. Demand for Mattel twenty twenty absolutely. Our strategy is to transform a tale into an IP driven high-performing. Roy Company will in one of the strongest catalogue of children and Family and determined franchises in the world. And what you're seeing now with masters of the universe as well as movies in total that we announced between two thousand and eight thousand eight hundred nine hundred is a perfect example for his coming. Masters of the Universe is a great franchise. One of the Great. We thought Aji Superhero mythology to shows with Netflix. Another movie coming. Expect more to arrive now. In the meantime reenergize Barbie. I have to point out and people have to understand how important this is ninth consecutive quarter of growth. Where can franchise go if it grew nine percent to one point two billion highest for your gross sales list six years exactly the our purpose as a company is to empower the next generation to explore the wonder of childhood enrich the full potential? And you couldn't have a better flag-carrier than Barbie to promote diversity and inclusion and inspire bureaus to fulfil their potential. And be anything they want. Bobby is on Iran as you said it would just achieved our highest year of sales of the six years. Barbie has been the number one fashion property globally for each of the last four years and the best is yet to come. We have some great product innovation that we're introducing this year. Just can't wait to show you more. Speaking can't wait. I can't wait to hear what you're going to talk about with American girl at the food at the festival and I have to believe that. You've got a plan because that does that. The turnaround exactly American girl isn't turnaround. It is one of the most iconic cherish browns in the industry it has great legacy great heritage and deep engage fan base. We're now in the first year of a turnaround. We're launching a new strategy under a new leadership with enhancing the retail experience where launching new content new product architecture. Great experience in the stores again. It's a turnaround. It will take time but we are very firm believers in the potential and the future of the brand. I I know you as a total no nonsense guy. I needed truth on the ground appraisal of a very dynamic fluid situation which is China and the krone of ours. I have to believe that you've checked this out. You've made some decisions about how to handle it. Tell me what's really going on so I I should say that are Thoughts are with the people affected. Are People on the ground. Where taking all the necessary actions to protect their well. Being the health and safety we have a team of experts in the region that are looking to minimize disruption. We have the ability to mobilize some resources. Shift inventories leveraging our production capabilities and relationship with third parties. And so far. We're okay if this lingers it will have it will have an impact just take it will On the rest of the world but we believe we have relatively speaking A good standing in a better position than the rest of the industry because of our size our liquidity the where we design our manufacturing footprint which is now becoming a competitive advantage. And we hope that we'll be able to mitigate the disruption of course this lingers it would be tougher but for the time being we just have to wait and see and react as things evolve. I know you took over. You said you're going asset light your again completely true to your word last question. Where is the best place to build a toy? If China's off-line capitalizes key part of our strategy We as of now reduced three of the factories we consolidated or closed in China Mexico and Indonesia. We recently announced that we closing another factory in Canada. And this is all part of a campaign to achieve. More efficiency is higher performance and better output from our manufacturing footprint we are also in the process of reducing the number of items manufactured by thirty percent by the end of two thousand twenty. This is all part of our structures simplification effort which has been a headline driver for our cost. cost savings and really designing a company that is more progressive more than I make more flexible that is able to progress and cuts your value from our incredible acid base. This this is really part of a journey. We're not done this year. There's more calming. We expect to achieve fifty million dollars of savings in two thousand twenty from our capitalized project. And this is on top of the eight hundred and seventy five million dollars of savings rate savings that we achieved as of the end of two thousand nineteen so a lot of efficiency to capture dropping the bottom line and helping us drive growth in the long term. Alright well look. The story is just gets better and better. Every time I talk to you completely true to your word about what you said you do. And I think you'll do the same in two thousand twenty booths for shareholders. Thank you to eat on Christ sir. Thank you Jim. Man of his word. Toby is going to do everything that he's ended up doing. I think the story is a good one. Do have some corona virus risk. Obviously Christ he said Chairman and CEO of Battelle in my backyard down days for the Dow Jones Industrial Average. This is still a remarkable run so therefore what I do I get worried that it might not be sustainable. It only takes one bad set of coronavirus numbers. Maybe something from this weekend. To send the average into a tailspin. That's why I keep circling back to the classic defensive stocks because this outbreaks putting a real dent global economy and when the world slows will. You GotTa have some safety your performance. Why keep trying to expose you to these names. For instance last week we spoke to cross us. You know I think. That's the perfect corona virus play. We own it for the travelers. Don't forget bleach can kill everything including the grown virus because the surface does matter. It's a lot of is transmitted tonight. I've got another one for you. It's a long suffering consumer packaged goods. Name it used to be the best in the Group. It suddenly got screwed back again. It's called Colgate palmolive. Here's a company that makes toothpaste soap laundry detergent. All sorts of personal care products. Think Irish spring speed stick Ajax. Tom's of Maine. I mean. Think about it. Doesn't this look like what's in your bathroom. If I open the cabinet half the stuff is going to fall out. Unless you have it secured the colgate-palmolive for the last couple of years it's been dicey operator inconsistent was an inconsistent earner like Tony Soprano stock market. Prefers good earners as a result. The stock is under performance bouncing between the high fifty s and the mid Seventies. The better part of five five years in the last six weeks so come alive is up eleven percent for the year with most of that. Move Coming after the company reported a blowout quarter to SCO and stocks. That do that rarely stop at that percentage they go higher. And you know what? If you're spending years lost in the Wilderness. I think the future is looking bright for colgate. And I think it's a by what makes me believe in this turn consider where the company's coming from caucus main problem. It's been a lack of growth. Something that often happens to these big consumer packaged goods place from twenty fourteenth. Two Thousand Sixteen. The country experienced three straight years of declining sales. And that's thanks in part to a sprawling military restructuring effort by the twenty seventeen. It seemed like they had their house. Were but then. The business stalled out with another contraction the second after twenty eighteen. What went wrong. Okay first off. Colgate is a truly global company. This one even though you've seen all the time in the store only twenty one percent of his business. North America has very little for these kinds of companies forty hips income for emerging markets. Now that's a great source of growth but it also carries some unique risk when you get the vast bulk of your sales from overseas. Well guess what you're at the mercy of one of the worst markets in the world the currency mortgage getting a strong dollar in two thousand eighteen and declining currencies in Latin America. The most important regally colgate numbers just took a real hit remember. Strong dollar means they're foreign sales translate into fewer greenbacks and South America's put in wave greenback. Second thanks in part to these foreign exchange fluctuations raw cost inflation higher transportation costs. We've talked about a lot. Colgate had forced through some substantial price increases. Especially in countries devalue the currency's they had to do it to protect mortgages but obviously price hikes. Well you took the economy class. Probably they drive away customers. Put it altogether and these problems translated into a series of very weak numbers from two thousand. Eighteen and weak. Numbers gives you a stock. Of course colgate managed to rebound the first half of last year. Nice relief rally some of. That's because foliage chase me dividend dragged him. Although it currently yields only two point two percent but some of it was company-specific in April colgate delivered a modest beat that was good enough. Wall Street with management forecasting two to four percent organic growth. That's exactly what investors wanted to see companies able to raise prices without sacrificing vibe. That has changed now fast. Forward to July. You got another robust quarter. This time management told us that organic growth will come at the high end of the previous forecast. Stock China to seventy five however Wall Street started feeling more bullish about the economy landfalls. I've told you over and over again. So investors rotated they swapped out a defensive sock like colgate and they put their money into more cyclical names. It didn't help that when the company report November numbers were just okay. While the headline results were basically in line and management raised their organic growth forecasts slightly bunch of analysts took issue with the software than expected margin still stuck bottomed in a few days later. But it was in the mid sixties. Now you got a little bit of levitation. The run up to the end of the year and the first couple of weeks January but Kobe can really come roaring back until it reported. Its most recent end stunning screaming stunning results two weeks ago. Oh boy. This quarter was different while the line. The sales hotline much expected of five point five year over year price. It was up one point. Five percent global unify a five point five percent the organic sales rising and outstanding five percent. And you've got some nice margin expansion. Because that's the holy grail vegetable matter gave me very bullish forecast for two thousand twenty. No Wallace not met the new. Ceo Guided for three to five percent gaining sales. But this year. I think he's the only one in this whole. Sumer Package Group that I have not met Abe bricks more gross margin expansion two and mid to high single digit earnings will furry impressive. How did they pull it off? If you're struggling to generate growth colgate became a much more consistent opera it's a good earner get. They made that happen by investing in the brands and forcing price increases to maintain their margins. Wasn't doesn't hurt. Guess what the weekly which gives them a lot more breathing than the rest of the world. This is the ultimate weak dollar. Play right here. There are two more factors work since this fellow Wallace took over. Ceo last year the companies made a series of acquisitions. They brought this to Largo for large. I'll get it right for Laura's skincare business. Won't I really love the skincare business because I follow US water? This is a piece of it. This is the premium tight aging brand. And it's part of a broader strategy. We're doubling down on higher margin products. Florida deals already giving their sales a nice boost. It was really smart then last month. They NASA sport transaction pip hello products. That's rattling going. Toothpaste mouthwash brand. They're really getting a lot of toothpaste business. I used to use this sense and I know these really good. This is a real good book. The second factor Kobe's long been a leader in sustainability frears. No one on Wall Street really cared about this stuff. Think water conservation reducing plastic packaging. Now though there's a lot of money floating around that specifically earmarked for sustainable investments and so matters so. Can The stock continue to climb? Let me give you the bottom line. You're I the stocks feels little fully. I E trading twenty four times next year's estimates. But we're going to get some bad days in this market. This is want to buy a market white. Pullback the yard pounds coit exactly the kind of defensive name that could be worth buying into the teeth of a panic that. I expect now because the corona virus outbreak. And I've gotTa tell you panic possibility and when it happens colgate colgate colgate palmolive so fifty-six sixty five you know what I mean. It's got to wear them in Tennessee. William Jimmy Chill. Oh Man. I've been feeling what's up calling in regards to Yeti ticker symbol lights yes? I'm surprised that stock is back over. Five points despite Positive beat on earnings and a good twenty twenty outlook Followed you're successful guidance. To pick this up slowly as it sells off in the past in other time Yes ben Sterile and I my research record over and over and we feel exact same way. This talks being pushed down. It shouldn't be it is it had a brilliant quarter and there's been lean on thing from day one. They've got a good product. I think they do a good job and I thought the stock should have been out there for that. Were all right colgate palmolive. Yes holgate of all things is exactly. The pits name to buy the best doctor recommended for years eighties nineties. I think it's back. I think you should pal six hundred back now. Much money exclusive with. Maybe one of the foreign look totally companies in the country dominion dividend stocks suddenly back and styles at ten onto circle. Back to that company. I've got to see you then. The stock beat goes on. But is this sustainable? I'm giving my take and what it means for your portfolio of course oil on your calls rapid fire nights addition of light with fine yields plunging dividend stocks back in style in the Wall Street fashion show especially utilities which are red hot. Are Any of them. Still worth buying it. This move consider dominion energy. That's the Big East Coast Utility. It's got a little bit of everything. Regulated electrical and Gas Gas Pipeline look natural gas export terminal in Maryland. Oh and they're even a major player in renewables now reporter strong quarter earlier this week and talks been on a tear lately made new highs today but even appeared still sports abound four point three percent yield could have more upset. Let's take a close look with Tom. Foul the chairman president. Ceo Million Energy better in the quarter and where his company is headed. Hey Don we'll come back to make money. Jim Great to be with you happy. Valentine's Day same to you. You gave facebook terrific. Valentine's Day president yesterday with renewable energy partners. And I want you to talk about it because what this is about is when a forward thinking utility. Does something terrific to get business in where everybody wins? So you've got the floor. Thanks Jim you're referring of course to our Contract we entered into with facebook to build solar farm with them. We also done one with Arlington County. We have others with Microsoft. Amazon is moving eastern headquarters to northern Virginia in Arlington County. We've been working with them on that we have other. They have a lot of data centers. Here we've been working for that whole community for years now to help them meet their needs and desires to go to all renewable if they can get there and as quickly as they can and we're looking at trying to do the same thing if we can with the offshore wind farm we plan on building. Well one of the things when we went out to see Saudi Adele at Microsoft. I know he wants to have. Is these different scopes where he thinks that he can help. Change Really SA- food chain of energy so to speak. Most of the energy companies have are trying. Why are you so forehead? Why are you able to do these things when others keep saying trying? Well we've got a thoughtful about it. I think probably half a decade ago and started trying to instead of just saying hey. It's difficult to do that. Because of the way the regulation works or whatever we said. Let's work with them. Let's work with regulators to see if we can come up with methods that are worked for them making sure that the extra cost if there is any a lot of it can be done without any extra cost. Make sure that whatever extra costs are don't filter through to the rest of our customer base. So that's what we've been working on for. You know most of about five or six years. I wish others would listen. Because you're coming in you'll gross rate is still above the whole industry. Yes it is we you know just even five years ago Jim. We had a very little solar on our system. We wanted to make sure the cost got to a place where it was effective and cost efficient for our customers. Before we started deploying it in large quantities we brought from having none to the fourth largest utility holding company for solar in the country in just four years. Five Years Adulation for doing that. You've also put out a goal that I think is very hard for a lot of energy companies to do but I bet you beat. It introduced a Niro Net zero emissions by twenty fifty target carbon methane emissions. I mean these are very difficult for utilities. Meet they are and where you know where you have even more complicated for us than most because we also have a very large. We have a lot of local gas distribution companies in our company. We have a large gas transmission. Storage business. You Mentioned Co Point Allergy Export Facility Import and export facility a few minutes ago so we worked very hard on this. We'd had a goal to reduce methane emissions by fifty percent by twenty thirty and our carbon. We'd already reduce carbon by fifty percent twice the industry average. By the time I got this year to reduce it all the to eighty by twenty fifty but we worked hard on that over the last most of the year because I want to announce a target of net zero without seeing a way to get there and we became convinced that we can do it through a number of programs. We're already the largest investor renewable natural gas with some of our partners in the United States. And there are other things we're going to do. We are going to need a research and development to help with this in public policy support but we see a path to getting their good you Mrs Features Velvet. I think when you first this when you talk with the plastics companies. You're not hoping that they recycle more. You're hoping is that. Come up with a new technology that allows it to biodegrade you when you need if we wouldn't be able to give someone in science. Let's say five billion dollars to develop something. What do you really want to make it so that your footprints more? I think the two things that I would ask them to concentrate on would be a cracking the code on effective storage for electricity at fast scale. Americans we use electricity at an enormous scale and the storage for now is really see bits and pieces other than pumped storage which we on the largest one in the world. Actually in operated in the Virginia Mountains and the other would be and this will be controversy for some is coming up with modular nuclear reactors much smaller safer quicker to install one. That's good have you ever spoken to? Eli Musk have not been at a conference with him. But I haven't spoken to them closely. He was proposed at a dinner party. Is that the first one that you mentioned of the two things. He said it's going to happen and he said he would do it. Come kind of tell you this guy when he puts his mind to it. Maybe he's got some ideas and you can share with the industry. That would be great this what he's what he has worked on through. One of his companies is what they call candidates a wall. I can't remember exactly the name they use for it. It's a it's a standard set of lithium batteries that you can use for short term storage. What worked what I'm talking about. Is Longterm hours and hours and hours at a very very large scale not just for a house or Business and the other thing. We really need help with his carbon capture and storage. That's another that's part of the the international organizations looking at climate change of said we really got to crack the code on that too. Well terrific and thank you for all you doing -gratulations on your on your your all time high. And you deserve it. I WANNA thank Tom. Farrell the chair in presidency of Dominion Energy. I know if he's out there. You can challenge me. But I think he's the most forward thinking when it comes to utilize and carbon footprint for that. He's backing. It is time what is that. That's the pattern and then the lightning round is over. Are you ready? Steve Data with Michael in Florida. My goal good evening Dr Chill doctor Dr Chill sounds like a super villain true So Nice soft easy from Sunny Tampa Florida. So there you go. You Bet I was reading an article the other day. And this guy mentioned three stock. That might be used to play the Thomas Driving. That might be coming in one of the one listed with black there. He was wrong and that's interesting. That guy don't go breaking my heart with that stock. I won't go breaking my. Don't go breaking my heart with Blackburn. Let's go to protect those comments from the doctor Jill.

Sure Jimmy Chill Boulia. I'm a fourteen year old debt there in October. I called about this company at twenty two dollars a share. And you did your homework and many other segments on it and you said it's great with earnings on Tuesday. Should I keep continuing to be a buyer of the medical thank maker in most? I N now more believers. We wouldn't leave that one if we tried that. These heroes one. Fourteen year olds weren't interested in the market. I thought they didn't care. I thought they just wanted index funds. Let's go to heck during California's Hector. Hey Hey Jamie. This is your boy from Sunny Northern California. I wonder does on the solar industry as a whole but in particular a certain company solar as Technology Ticker S. E. G. Because your state and the rules these solar companies have gone up there great specs and this is a great spec in. That's how I look at and that lays is lose enough. Money is sponsored by G Ameritrade. There's an undercurrent earning season that you might not recognize if you're new to the business so I gotta explain it to you right now. Companies are being rewarded. Not just for beating the numbers but for giving you one glorious word and that word is visibility okay. This is where this going out of fashion in recent years. Ever since the great recession companies have been loath to talk about visibility became too dicey too. Many businesses told us they had this Bollywood. It turned out they and when they're disappointing. Well guess what there's stocks got obliterated somewhat bother sticking ed set yourself up now. Visibilities is making a comeback. Maybe enough time has passed maybe businesses. Just better I don't know what do I know we are. Seeing what we're seeing stocks weren't up into earnings then go still higher because measures able to make a claim that the futures brighter than the past. They see it taking video uber. Kramer fave sending DR Congo some of the greatest visibility into its future of any company on Earth and that is not hyperbole. Even though the stock flew into the so-called print it jumped again. Because they gave you not only a beaten arrays with. They talked about a clear path in conversational artificial intelligence. We're talking about technology. You can answer basic questions from you. Your Voice within three hundred milliseconds almost instantly requires the idiom so key. Magin getting your car to say. Hey Take it in your starbucks. Or how about? Where's the nicest hotel? Where's the four seasons around here and fans sake and it's like not smarter than we are in US going to have that inference? It's here right now and this story is still so early that there's nothing to fear about the future it won't be like that you're from Helwan. Bitcoin our bitcoin miners overloaded on video graphics because granted cars because they thought there was gold then Dr Hills. When bitcoin collapse they returned the chips and video that stuck with a ton of excess inventory. This time is very different. We saw the company reported last night. Excess inventory thing of the past A. Why does this kind of visibility matter because it allows the analyst Model Future with more accuracy? Let's them say the stock looks expensive on this year's numbers as it does but it looks very cheap. One twenty twenty three estimates and that more than anything else is why money managers paid up for invidia today up nineteen dollars. Who else is in the visibility boat? Well no one's really weird videos. Frankly but I felt that ringcentral which is converting thousands of businesses to its customer centric cloud based communication. Problem is monitor them. They have dozens of clients to the website. Talking about how they save money generate more business had happier customers. Brinker the parent company of Chile's said the payback for ringcentral was pretty much instant. And that's how this company noses can keep growing that's why Vlad Guerrero then there's autorickshaw now this is one the probably unless you've watched the show. I've been huge backer of it. This is the data analytics company with a product. That I think seems vastly superior to Microsoft's excel. Which is still the way people do things. All these talks have rally then rallied again as they guided up tremendously. Nearly ten percent was trying to get them on the show. It won't be long now. We've also gotten some raised forecasts from Fang. My APP can from facebook games on Apple Nevelson Google. But they don't give you the kind of visibility to smart start to crave in fact the only big tech company great visibility is the non Microsoft with new clients. Coming Dros to Azure cloud platform there again. As far as the I can see. That's why it accelerating revenue. You want to know what it takes for a stock advance and they keep visiting if Bernie's listen for that word visibility if the company has it. I bet it's a stock by stick with cream. Stay right there.

Listen at all turtles podcast dot com. Or find the alternatives podcast wherever you get your podcasts. The meat company trying to train up a more diverse generation of startup founders from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Only about one percent of venture capital backed startup founders are black according to CBS sites. Data even fewer are black women or Latino. There's not a lot of age, diversity geographic, diversity and underrepresented founders. Don't always have access to the networks or the training programs that can help them get startup funding. Mandela Dickson is a former public schoolteacher startup founder and was a mentor for entrepreneurs at the firm Cape or capital about a year ago. She created founder, Jim, which is an online only training program for would be startup founders. I talked to her the afro tech conference last week in San Francisco. Just like if you want to be a lawyer, you go to law school, if you wanna be a doctor you go to medical school, right? But there is no school for people who wanna be venture capital backed startup founders in often times the schools that are formed are informal right by your networks and a lot of underrepresented founders. Don't have the people in their networks who've raised venture capital who've Ben venture capitalists. So we're. Literally, creating kind of from the ground up this first Ebba curriculum, specifically tailored to meet the needs in how a deep level of empathy for the lived experiences of underrepresented founders. So tell me about the Taylor like what is different about the message that you give to underrepresented founders. What are the first activities we do is actually called differences as strengths, and it really is actively for founders to reflect on what makes them unique how because you didn't grow up where these other people grew up because you went to different schools and were exposed to different things that your purview is different in the world. And that you're able to see problems other people don't even know exist, and that's a competitive advantage because most people out there, are you mostly will out there are not from fluid background. And so the problems that you're going to go out and solve will actually help the majority of people since it's online only talked to me about the network building. Because I know that's a big thing that people talk about when they come out of us of an accelerator in there with a class, and they really have. It's sort of like we were all eagle scouts together. Baen it's huge. How do you create that in a in an online experience straight question? So that's actually one of the biggest things I underestimated Meyer, original hypothesis for founder, Jim was that it was a curriculum was a language barrier that the reason people were not succeeding here from certain groups was because they didn't speak the language. Well, what I grave underestimated was that people were looking for a community these individuals again, they're only in their world. They may be the only black or Brown or let LGBTQ are older founder in their circle in. So how we structure network it's in we're very intentional. We do affinity groups on a weekly basis. We also do peer trainings. So it's not just the expert trainers who have the knowledge we actually elevate the founders within our community to train each other Mandela Dixon is founder and CEO of founder, Jim incubators and exceleron for underrepresented, founders are becoming more. Common. Although experts say it'll be hard to change the industry for good until the venture capitalist themselves. Become more diverse and now for some related links. I did find some hopeful news about the tech industry, relatively speaking. An off Ed in entrepreneur magazine from about a week ago notes, a big upsurge in the number of events focused on women and investment, partly because successful women entrepreneurs are funding the next generation of founders and also because we're just talking about it a lot still only two percent of BC funding went to women at all in two thousand seventeen far less to women of color. But it's a good read binded utter website. Marketplace tech dot org, and before we go a super quick story that you might have missed and all the Amazon hubbub earlier this week. Google is not to be outdone. It said it also plans to double its workforce in New York City over the next ten years, reminding us that the ranks of the underrepresented in the tech industry are also anyone who's not in about four major metropolitan areas. A recent report on venture capital activity from pitchbook and the national venture capital association. Included what it said was a shift in attention towards startups in non coastal regions of the country. The report noted quote this trend hasn't quite surfaced in the data yet, but positive sentiment and interest are emerging. We'll see I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM. Hi, I'm Zach and I listened to marketplace in Arlington Virginia. I think what I appreciate the most about marketplace's their ability to take the economic news of the day issues such as tariffs rate hikes and tax reform cut through the political noise, and clearly and concisely explained not only how these issues affect our country and the rest of the world, but how they impact people like me.

Episode 41 Anarchy Ensues

"Uh-huh! Survival emotion podcast. Adapt. Prepared survive. There was that time when the COLGATE company decided to sell frozen foods. Yeah, colgate that company that sells toothpaste. They put their toothpaste logo. On a bunch of frozen food in your grocery store and in TV dinners. And like you could buy. colgate brand frozen LASAGNA. That was a pretty dumb idea. There was the Coca Cola company that throughout the eighties I think just had a couple of really bad ideas adopted on a grand scale. I didn't think new coke. was that bad, but new coke in retrospect is seen as a really bad boneheaded idea. I think this is the dumbest idea. I've obscene. Corporate American a long time, and that's saying a lot is when Coca Cola bought Columbia Pictures. You're a soft drink company. Why would you buy a movie studio? Well, the thinking was they want to diversify. No see diversify. That's like when a toothpaste company buys maybe a mouthwash company, and then they kind of work out some kind of symmetry like the mouthwash, flavored toothpaste or something that's kind of diversification that kind of makes sense, but not when a soft drink company buys a movie studio unless you're trying to say well, every movie produced by that movie studio is going to have a bottle. Bottle of coke there or something. I mean that didn't make sense anyway. These are examples, and there are many others. Really really bad idea has adopted on a grand scale I. think they even pale in comparison to this idea that's sweeping the country of abolishing the police departments or severely defunding the place departments in your local cities. It's the stupidest most boneheaded idea I've. I've heard adopted on a grand scale in I think my whole lifetime. It's really really dumb. One police officer kills a black guy and it was annoying to see that video I watched that video, and I thought what the hell the guy's in handcuffs. Just putting them in your back of your car and tell them to jail, but no, the guy had to kneel on. On his neck for eight minutes or something, it was a real outrage that happened at all. So the protests breakout the writing the looting, and now the movement comes to de-fund and abolish police departments, and it's actually gaining steam. If you can believe it, the polling I've seen is sixty five percent. Give or take against the idea. Fifteen percent is in favor of it. My question is what about the extra twenty percent? I think they're probably knows, too, but they're probably like. Oh, you're kidding right well. Apparently, not so on a grand scale, the movement to abolish police departments is actually catching on. It's one of these things that makes me think we're living in crazy times or Am I crazy. One Who thinks this is just flat out. Awful, the argument is oh well. There are some racist, incorrupt, corrupt and bad police officers out there really I mean dude. You're just now noticing this I. Mean you're just now realizing that there are some bad police officers out there I mean. Where have you been? I can say as a former prosecutor as a defense attorney now by and large the vast majority. Majority of police officers are good people. They're professional. They're not homicidal and they're not racist. Did I say all of them? No, because there are some bad place officers they're always have been, and always will be some bad place officers out there. That's just a fact of life, but I still stand by the statement that the vast majority of police officers are professional. They mean well. They're not racist and they're not homicidal, okay? So these people say? Oh, there's one or two bad ones, so let's completely abolish all of them. Man I mean that's like if you've ever been in a foreign country where you never really sure about the police department, this'll be even worse than that like Mogadishu or something or some parts of Mexico. It's a profoundly boneheaded idea, and it's a real travesty that so many people are falling for this idea. It's just crazy. I mean the rich parts of town will probably hire their own private security forces, so they'll probably do okay. The poor parts of town are going to be like war zones, and if you're thinking, is that well someplace? Officers are racist, so let's do away with all police officers, the bad parts of town that's mostly minority neighborhoods, and they're going to be in awful shape, and I can say that the city of Minneapolis. Is Pretty much on its way to join other cities like Baltimore Saint Louis Chicago Baltimore. You know that had a pretty consistent homicide rate of two hundred homicides a year until right around twenty fifteen and whenever that Freddie Gray I think it was the guy killed by the police officers or I should say died in their custody. A number of police officers were charged with having anything to do with. His killing and to his credit, there was a lot of these trials in fact I think all of them were held in front of an African American judge, just as a court trial meaning that jury was waived, and this is one example of a judge doing the right thing. He just said No. There's no evidence. The fact that this guy was being transported from point a to point B., and then he was found at point. B To be deceased does not mean that all these police officers killed him. Somehow, let's hear your case. You have no case so that was great. It's actually possible for A. A judge to do the right thing on occasion, but anyway I think that's the most boneheaded idea I've heard about adopted on a mass scale in my lifetime. Is this abolish the police? It's extremely stupid. I do have one proposal a nights ago. I was watching this documentary America. In color and it was the decade of the twentieth when everybody was buying Ford Model Ts and there were few newsreels that showed I think it was downtown New York, but whatever the downtown city somewhere where it was a complete mad house, who was driving? Where and I think they were all driving on the right anyway, but. Because, even horse and buggies were doing that in America, but there was no rhyme or reason about who would stop, and who would go at what intersection, so all of a sudden streetlights were invented, and then it showed the downtown city where there were street lights, the green for this way and read for that way, so you guys had to stop, and it kind of made sense in the documentary was treated as kind of a just a right of passage cars. Cars are becoming more prevalent, so we need to develop ways that cars will accommodate each other and do so safely. So that got me thinking. It seems like protests, nowadays more and more, they involve people streaming out into the street or a highway and stopping traffic, and apparently sidewalks are just not good enough. You can't protest enough. Just standing on a sidewalk with a sign, you have to go stop traffic so while there is already kind of a common law agreed. Principle that if you are endanger, you can. Protect yourself and get out of the danger whatever the situation is! That's called common law. I think it's time that we specify. Make specific laws on the books as to. What situation will allow a motorist to drive through and at what speed limit to dry through a crowd of protesters, because this is becoming more and more prevalent where protesters go out onto the street or on the highway and they blocked traffic. And occasionally they come across the car, and they decide to smash it, and if the person is really unlucky, then they pull that person out of the car and stomp on them, and that person is almost killed, and so forth I think it's become just a right of passage in our country now where we need to specify in what situation and under what circumstances a person can drive through protesters and I think it's going to be along the lines of. subjectively, the driver felt endanger for their life, and also that that. Feeling was objectively reasonable, which means that it's not just you the paranoid driver? It's anybody in that situation would have felt that their life was in danger. So assuming those two are in place then you can drive through the crowd in front of you, and under what circumstances the different states can specify you have to you know, honk a couple times you can drive no more than say ten or fifteen miles an hour that way people can safely get out of. Of the way or whatever but I think this idea of Oh. There's a protest forming in the street ahead. I have to come to a full stop and I can't drive through at all. I think that's just gotta go. A- protest is fine so long as it's on the sidewalk, there's something inherently dangerous nowadays about a protest, an angry protests streaming out into the highway or the St and angrily yelling at drivers, and if you don't take my word for. Any the truck driver who was in the wrong place the wrong time in Los Angeles nineteen ninety-one during those riots and he did just. What is the normal humane? Peace loving thing to do. He pulled his truck up and he came to a complete stop in the middle of the threat, and because he didn't want to kill about it, he didn't want to endanger anybody who was blocking his way in the roadway. Well, what happened to him with? He was yanked out of his cab and beaten up by a whole bunch people and left for dead I think! Think. It was a few minutes or maybe a couple of hours later. Somebody said Oh i. think that guy is still alive. And he was brought to the hospital by some good. Samaritan, and he now has brain damage and he's a mess, so let's just remember what happened to Him Reginald. Denny is his name and that's why I say it's inherently dangerous for protesters to go out into the street. Street or a highway even worse than that. There was a group of protesters in Lansing Michigan who blocked a certain intersection, and they said no drivers are allowed through here, and they actually had guns with them, and some motorcyclists came up and said Hey. I've got to go home. I've got to go through this intersection and go that way. And one of the protesters pointed a gun at him and. and Said No. You're not going through this intersection. We're protesting here. You have to go some other way and the motorcyclists that you know. The police know what you guys are doing. And the protesters said Yeah, the police are right over there. They're just watching all this now. I hope that what's going to happen is a week or two from now. The police are going to issue arrest warrants. Just sitting there watching all this instead of arresting people, but apparently that's the status of placing nowadays. There's no rule that a felony committed has to be arrested right then and there so it could be a week or two from now there's going to be an arrest warrant for assault with a deadly weapon felony against these protesters who were pointing guns at people who just wanted to get home anyway back to my proposal, it needs to be specified in the law books, not only that there's a general common law, right. Right of self-defense when you reasonably feel, you're in danger. There needs to be specific laws on the books saying when you are a driver and the road in front of you is clogged by a bunch of protesters, and you feel that your life is in danger, and this is reasonable Elif, then you can drive ten fifteen twenty. You know there might be some states that say you see you don't have to even. Tap on the brake pedal, he can just plow through. But it's up to the different states to do it. Different ways I think the days of just you have to come to a full stop. That's not right. That's not right. It's inherently dangerous for people. Storm out into the highway so I. had that specific proposal that I think are states should take up and specify when and how and what circumstances they can drive through a crowd. Another thing I wanted. Wanted to mention, and this is a criticism of our media or news reporting is ever since this happened this killing of the Black Guy in Minneapolis at the end of May it started off. Black lives matter mostly black people protesting. It's now gone way beyond that and I think the idea of George, Floyd. I think is his name. If you bring that up to the protestors, nowadays, they'd say who. Who you're talking about. They're not here to protest any kind of police brutality against African Americans. No, now it's just an anarchy thing and they're here to topple statues. Destroy whatever they can, because it's just an anarchist, anti-american thing and my criticism of the media is that when you watch all the news coverage of all this, and this is even Fox News is that it seems like there's no perspective you watch the news and all this covered, and you just think Oh, this is the end of the world when it's not because stuff like this has happened before, and I wish that our news media would cover this and say you know. This also happened a few years. Years ago or a few decades ago. Here's some film footage of that and just kind of put it in perspective so that the viewer doesn't leave thinking okay. This is the end of the world. You know because it's not these are dangerous times. We're living in, but we've been through this before and I'm almost tempted to just say. Watch the news maybe once a week, or maybe not at all. Here's my only reservation and let me back up for a second at our Bible study in our church. There's. A woman in. Her forties or fifties, single woman lives alone. Fair skinned I'd say maybe hundred and ten pounds blond hair one day recently at Bible study she showed up, and just said look I can't really read along you know. 'cause we read different passages and goes around the room. That kind of thing she said I'll just be here in. Listen I'm not really going to participate through some diplomatic. Questioning as to why not? It came out that a few weekends before she was in the proverbial wrong place at the wrong time. I think around nine PM went to a grocery store and she was coming out of the grocery store with her groceries, and there was one of these protests, and she was just doing her best to get to her car, and a big mob started beating on her and next thing she knew she woke up in the hospital with a collapsed lung. Sounds like she has a few broken ribs now she survived, but that's what's happening nowadays is. People have nothing to do with anything just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time are getting beat up and their lives are being endangered, and by the way. If you think well, I'm not a white person. Maybe I'm in the clear. No, no, this is happening to all people of all skin colors there that Guy David Dorn I think his name was just great, retired police officer. African American Philadelphia. I could be wrong, but he was a security guard for pawnshop. When one of these rights came through, and several people broke into the pawnshop shop and shot this Guy David, Dorn and I think he was like seventy five. Five years old or something and his photo when he retired from the police a few years ago, just showed a really nice guy. You see that photo and you just know what a great friend to other people. What a great police officer! What a great father and grandfather! He was well. This guy was shot in that pawn shop, and his final few moments were videotaped. Live on facebook live for everybody's entertainment I. Just think that was just awful. What happened to him? And what happened to a friend at Bible study, so it's not just a white people. It's everybody. Everybody is in danger around one of these mobs, so that's why I say. Your peace of mind will be a lot better off if you don't watch the news because nothing is kept in perspective, but it is good to know. If the news is reporting where the latest mob violence is happening, and you can avoid that area. Let me tell you I've got a permit to carry a concealed weapon, and I do carry a concealed weapon, but if I can avoid a life or death situation I will, and if I see that a mob is forming wherever I'll just turn around and leave a now, if the life or death situation keeps following me then. Then I can protect myself, but I would just rather not even be there and all of our family members I tell them the same thing. Just steer clear of it. Stay away from it if you're driving in highway and it's now blocked by a bunch of angry protesters, just back up to the latest exit and leave that area police are not gonNA. Pull you over for backing up on a highway or shoulder or whatever? police generally are not doing anything during these protests, so just get out, get out of the area and stay aware of where the mobs might be the other day I was driving by a protest. This is a strange one. It was like fifty and sixty something people, and they all looked pretty well educated, and fairly well off and I just thought. Before this year I would have thought that's the totally harmless protest, but nowadays you never know the twenty-something college students who are filled with anger trum. Having read that Howard, then book I can't remember the name. All it takes is a few of them to get things started and next thing you know. Peaceful protests turns into a riot so I saw that group of they looked like older parents or grandparents. Even I just saw that crowd and I thought no. No I'm staying away. Away from that crowd that could become dangerous another thing. I wanted to mention just as I close here is stay well armed and make sure you've got a lot of Ammo when you are in the process of possibly having to defend yourself with a firearm. Don't forget ear protection because guns of all kinds are extremely loud, and you've got to watch your ears. Cover them up. have those little orange things you can kind of roll up in between your fingers and putting your ears. Protect your ears. Here's another thing, not only guns, but it seems like nowadays. Molotov cocktails are the rage, so it might be the thing to start stocking up on fire extinguishers and beef up your water supply around the house. Maybe put up a water tank so that if your house gets lit on fire that you can put out the fire somehow I think that's kind of a new chapter in survival ism at least in the suburbs and inner city. City in America. Today is watch out for fires, and you cannot count on firemen to do their job, and this is really unfortunate. Firemen used to be held up as these are good people. Everybody likes the firemen well. No longer I mean the firetruck trying to get through a mob. It's not gonNA end well and I'll never forget hearing about I think it was orphanage being built during the first nights of these riots that was set on fire. And if it's the same situation, I'm thinking about. The mob actually stopped the fire truck from getting there. So that's where we're at right now. Anyway I hope. You have found today's episode of the Survival Emotion Motion Podcast, educational and informative. I hear the music, so that means our time is up. Thank you for joining me, God, bless.

This is bigger pockets business. Welcome back everybody. I M J Scott. Your Co host for the bigger pockets business podcast and I am here today once again with my partner in Crime Mrs Carol Scott. How you doing today Carol doing so graded. Oh my goodness. Is this really our twentieth show. I know it goes so fast ashby yeah. We've gone through twentieth these now. It's amazing. This is seriously the most fun job ever because we get to talk with the most inspiring engaging guests. It's it's an interesting role. Though is a podcast host because you're listening to these great stories in there are a lot of times when you WanNa talk a lot more in interject an awful lot not but that is not our role when you're on this side of the microphone but when you're on the other side of the microphone they're all kinds of new things to share. Yes so today's guest. I think that's a good ledin is somebody who's normally on this side of the microphone. He has a podcast host but today he's going to be our podcast gassed asked and his name is David Green and for any of you out there who listened to the bigger pockets real estate podcast. You're probably familiar with David. He is the CO host of the bigger pockets. Real estate podcast asked and that's only one of the things he does. He's the CO host of the bigger pockets real estate podcast. He is a book author who has written several books. He does a whole bunch of out of state investing stink and if you've ever heard him on a podcast or hurt history. You probably heard about those things but today on this show. We're GonNa talk about something that he doesn't talk about very often but I I find tremendously interesting. I think you will as well. He's going to talk about the business that he runs. So David is the owner he manages the David Green Real estate team under Keller Williams Realty and he basically manages team of real estate agents who sell high end real estate in the Bay Area Northern California Cornea and he has built an amazing organization amazing team of agents who have been tremendously successful in the world of real estate sales and and in this episode he's GonNa Talk to you about how he got into that business how he really helped himself stand out and create an amazing brand for himself in that business and there's talk to you about how he has scaled and grown the business and the team so that he's achieved even greater success than anybody thought was possible it. Here's here's the thing though even if you listeners have no desire to be a traditional real estate agent. You don't want to buy and sell real estate. He's got some awesome business sense. In general he especially especially hits like complete gold. When he talks about the hiring process he takes us really into a deep dive of how you can get at the core of people's values figure. You're out what they're all about and see if they would be a good fit for your team in your business to help it grow in fact he takes mazars interview process and what do you think maybe do. You think I'm getting the job not sure yet the job I guess people you have to listen decide for themselves. I guess how so one more thing I have a challenge challenge for all of you listeners out there so David Green is well known for being a guy who uses a whole lot of analogy so again. If you've ever listened to the real estate podcast you know that he talks walks in analogies constantly and he's made fun of by Brandon Turner has co host very often so here's my challenge to you listen to the hallway through the episode and count how how many analogies he makes in this episode at the end of the episode. I'll give you the total. That's a great salad. I love it okay so before before we jump into this episode. Let's listen to a quick word from our sponsor. Hey they're bigger pockets listeners.

Let's jump right in to our discussion with Mr David Greene welcome to the show David Green you doing David what is going on guys. I am super or excited to be here. This is pretty cool. This way super cool. I love that we're all Kinda like sharing our stories and cross pollinating and I think what I'm most excited about is that so so many of our listeners know so many sides of you from your book from being a podcast host from an investing standpoint but I'm not sure everybody knows this whole other beside you and how you built. Your Business and that's where we're GONNA talk about a lot today so I think it's really cool to hear that side of your story. Yeah I have multiple personalities but this is the one that never doc well for those of you who don't know who David as he is. The Co host of the bigger pockets real estate podcast with Brandon Turner. Unfortunately Brandon has this so this persona that kind of overshadows everybody in his wake so David doesn't get enough credit for that but he is the Co host of the podcast. He is the author of of this book that I'm holding up that if you're watching us on youtube is called by Rehab Rent Refinance repeat latest book by bigger pockets and he is also a big investor invested a lot of out of state properties but like Carol said today we are not going to focus on the real estate investing. We're not gonNA focus on the books. We're not going to focus on the podcast. We're GONNA to focus on David's business so before we jump in Dave. Why don't you give us Dave. Dave go by both okay good. Dave Why don't you give us a little bit of back story. How did you get into the business that we're GONNA be talking about today. Give us a little bit of your history yeah. This is really really cool. I hardly ever get to talk about this because like you said we're usually focused on real estate. Investing I bought the majority of my rental properties working as a police officer as when I first got started with bigger pockets blogging and being interviewed on the podcast I was working as a cop and I would just save up crazy money and I would go invest that money into real estate well the police kind of culture for an environment that job itself changed quite a bit and then I developed a an injury from working a lot and I realized that I wasn't going to be able to work for the rest of my career. The police officers my body was not going to be able to handle it and so I got my real estate license and I started selling real estate kind of part time. It was something that I would do with my buddies when they would come to me and say hey i. I know you're the real estate guy. Can you help me buy a house. I was referring them to other agents and then they'd complain because let's just be frank. Most agents stuck even the good ones that you refer people to. You'RE GONNA get complaints about. It and I just thought you know I'm going to try to learn to do this myself. Just to spare myself the venting. I have to hear from people that are like Oh. They didn't call me back. They made me wait a day so I got my license and I started selling houses and just object real quick so a lot of investors get their real estate license for their own benefit so they can buy and sell their own houses but you're actually Ashley looking to create an independent stream of income buying and selling for homeowners and other people correct hundred percent. I was representing my friends. My family and clients is it came to me and wanted to buy a house but I kinda had a leg up on all the realtors who were just getting started because they had to learn real estate. They had alert sales. They had to learn the contract. They had to learn the culture. I I already knew real estate. That was not hard for me. I understood it inside out and I'd been through the process so many times myself so really what I had to do is learn how to be a salesperson. I had to change things might cop persona which was very natural for me. Get on the ground or else. Type of thing is very simple as binary right you do this or do that into this like spectrum mindset instead of all these different people you're dealing with where on that spectrum you need to be to be able to connect with that person and help them see things from your point of view. Basically you needed people to comply with you not because you you had a gun it got it turns out that makes life a lot easier when you've gotta get in handcuffs and the authority of the state behind you. It's a whole lot easier to get compliance then when you have to actually convince. VEG- people sell your house or else. The whole you know doesn't quite work. I I found myself. Many times just frustrated because I didn't have that Chico to rely on. That was my trump card. I always get them to do it. I want it so yeah I took about a year and I kind of did both I sold some houses and I worked as a police officer and then in about a year into it I decided okay. I'm ready to go full time so I stepped away from being a police officer. I took a leave of absence and I started working at Keller Williams Williams brokerage fulltime. This is is before. I was hosting the PODCAST I was. I was riding long distance real estate. Investing the first book I wrote and I started selling houses in my first year ended up being the top agent in the biggest brokerage in the area Erica. What year is this a very good question. This is twenty sixteen sixteen so about three years ago excellent. Sorry twenty seventeen two thousand seventeen so this is just two years ago. Oh fascinating okay so in two years ago. You are the number one producing agent in the biggest Keller Williams office in that area awesome proceed so I I had a lot of success I was doing. Well is getting a lot of accolades from other people but it didn't feel good. It didn't feel like I love what I'm doing. In fact most most of the time I felt myself stressed and frustrated because what it took to be successful in this world where not things that I enjoy doing. They didn't really fall into my natural skill set. I'm just so stubborn that I can push through it so you're just glued to your phone your absorbing other people's emotions constantly. You're listening to people tell you what they're scared of. Why they're worried what might go wrong and the crazy things. People's brains can pull up when they're afraid of taking a risk they're looking to you nonstop and then you're doing administrative tasks like scheduling things and I knew my strengths were finding clients explaining the process and helping get people in contract which I understood from that the training killer was giving us through Gary Keller that those are the most important things finding business and earning revenue through that business is the most important thing you can do business but all my time is being spent with white noise the eighty percent of stuff that only gets you twenty percent of the results. I was in the wrong stuff and I was miserable. I knew because in my heart I just thought I hate this but I couldn't stop because I was doing so well and I saw that there is a need and I I the my business and my life really changed when I hired my first assistant okay so this is great so we have two places. I'd love to kind of go with this. I want to talk talk about how you ended up getting out of that incorrect eighty twenty mode so that you weren't focusing on the wrong things and how you scale the business but you also mentioned that in two ears you became a top selling agent so I know there are a lot of probably people out there who are listening that either have their real estate license or at some point may get the real estate license decide to go in real estate sales. Can you tell us a little bit about what you as an individual before. You even started scaling your team in Your Business. What were you doing differently as a real estate agent agent kind of shorter or early success in in your career okay so there's there's two things that I think I did well that other people did not do and anyone can learn it but most people won't because it doesn't feel natural only a select few people actually natural. Let me run you guys through an exercise this year greg excellent. I'm going to say the name then J fired. He did this with you in Seattle than you. Don't get to do it but if not you can play. I'm going to say the name of a household autumn like a brand and you guys are going to or sorry an item and you're gonNa tell me the first two brands you think okay if I were to say shoes you'd probably say Nike and Reebok Nike and Adidas Okay Close enough all right so the first two that come to your mind the minute that you hear it right when he goes a race to get it out first toothpaste call past. Oh Bam myself on all right. Were you about to say. I don't know what the second one was going to be. I knew colgate. I couldn't think of a second one right there but okay so here's why I love that exercise because every time I am I've ever asked this question. I probably done it fifty times. Only one person ever said something else. They said refresh. Everybody know they send nine. Sorry because that's what they use. They have sensitive teeth. Everyone else has said colgate crest with that means that colgate crest owned the mindshare in your heads when it comes to toothpaste when when you walk through the store and someone says has carol. Can you pick me up some toothpastes on the way over you say sure you run into Safeway the minute you're ICEES colgate crest. You're going to grab it. You're not going to take a risk on something. You haven't seen if you had all the time in the world and you might stop you. Look at the back of the package. You might check the price a little bit more but we don't. It's the same way with a real estate referral when someone says to you guys hey. I need to sell my house. Who would you use. You're GONNA say the very first name that pops into your head immediately right so if you're not one or at least two people sets and everybody knows like ten realistic unlisted agents. They are everywhere the air. The barrier to entry is so low. It's ridiculous to be able to be a real city. Which is why there's so many that are not good what I did was I worked very hard to capitalize on my real estate investing to brand myself as the colgate or the crest in my sphere of influence minds every conversation we had we talked about real estate when when I asked him what they were doing in their life and I showed interest in it they would turn around and say what are you doing and I found a way to make real estate via part of it so I want to hear a little bit more David about how although although I don't want to focus on investing what were those triggers no pun intended with the whole gun conversation earlier while we're those triggers for these sellers that you were able to to really hone in on from your investing experience that really made a big difference in the real estate selling world so let's say that you guys are looking to sell your house and you know I'm an agent. I know you want to sell but I don't want to be too pushy and just go straight for it. We're not at that point yet right back. I would bring up a conversation talking about how I buy houses and other states and what I look for in a deal and once I explained to them how you find a deal I then make a bridge with logic to why the person listing the home did a a terrible job and that's why I'm getting a good deal. I look for houses in terrible shape with bad marketing. This is what bad marketing looks like. The pictures look like this. They priced it incorrectly see this is just an example. ZAMPA A really bad listing agent costing their clients a ton of money. They're probably one of those one percenters who don't charge much in the commission and so their clients lose more money and you plant that little seat in their head. Oh I was thinking about doing that and I would say like so. Here's the houses that I don't even bother looking at because I know I'm GonNa have to pay top dollar for it and I'm not about to get into a bidding war. They have professional photography. If you taken these wide-angle lenses to make it look really good. They've cleaned the house. They've actually put some time into trying to put in really good care. If I'M GONNA go on craigslist and I want to get a really good deal on a car. I'm running around an offer. It smells really nice and the vacuumed it. I'm looking for the thing that's still has some French fries in the seat cushions and and stinks like a dog or like cigarettes. That's what I want so that's what I look for. When I'm buying houses the problem is every once in a while you come across the cellar. That has a really good agent and there's no way you can get a deal on that house. Factor pregnant overpay for it love it. That's great great south five hundred. It doesn't sound pussy right. I'm not saying I'm better than the next guy you need to let me. Sell Your House but I'm letting them know there is a science to how this works and if you understand it you can be on the right side of it yeah yeah. I think awesome yeah that's great because I think too often. We look at real estate agents as commoditised. I could go with the Keller Williams. I I you at the century twenty one person I can go with whoever and they're pretty much all the same. They're gonNA take my house. They're going to throw them on the MLS and they're gonNA wait for somebody to come in and give me an offer and so essentially what you're doing is you're pointing out that that's not the case and the your customer needs to think about the fact that the service that they're going to get is really going to be dependent on the choice they make right now the decision about to make right now and so that's GonNa love that that's great and I'm I'm drawing an analogy. That isn't a house because I could tell them this this about house and what they're gonNA think is we'll of course you say that your agent you'll say anything but if I use this craigslist car example their their brain goes oh yeah that's a good point. I could see that especially. I shaped like you said you're not being pushy. You're not like in your face. You're not just say anything to get the deal. You're just giving them. Another perspective that rounds out the little experience for them and you can move forward okay so so you're able to use this at all. This experience you have is an investor to establish more credibility tablet more trust to plant seeds in the minds of the cellars that said so those are some of the things that you're doing to really set yourself apart. You are became top selling really quickly but you weren't enjoying it right. You're only there is only there is only maybe maybe twenty percent of it. You are liking forming that connection so who was the first person that you hired and what was that person doing. This was my friend Krista now KRISTA. I had known from Church like ten years ago. We'd been friends for a really long time and we kind of drifted out of each other's lives and I became a cop I kind of moved away and lost touch with almost everyone that I had known and I had got my license so I had to now. Go get social media. I've only had social media like three three years. I had never wanted it at all. Because all the people I put in jail as afraid they were. GonNa come find me and it back so I found her on social media we started talking again and she would always volunteer to help when I had closing but I had to be at work to work a beat or or add on a listing appointment and I wasn't able to drop the gift she would volunteer to go get the gift that I wanted that. I picked out a target and go leave it at their house for them or put the bow on their door like I I wanted my a standard of service to be really high but I realized I should be the one to do it and she was filling in the gap for me a lot so when I realized that I had hit ceilings with my business that I I could not take on more than four five clients at a time because I would just get overwhelmed. I knew I needed to leverage off. Administrative stuff in calories was really good about teaching exactly how that process works works and Krista was the one that I realized should be the one to do it with me excellent excellent so what else was she doing in addition to all those well. I would have back up for a quick second and actually before we asked specifically what she was doing side note. The little things that you're talking about here are obviously just not little things right. You're talking about the bow on the door. You're talking about dropping capping off the gift and that goes back to what you're talking about earlier. Real estate is such an incredibly low barrier to entry right. That's why there are so many bad ones out there just a side note that you're just like. You've got surprise and delight all over you right. I mean you going so above and beyond and that in and of itself I can imagine just grew your business so exponentially that you became such an obvious referral and you became that colgate crest really quickly by doing those those special touches those awesome things that really set you apart and there's cool cool. He talks about it as if they're not a big deal. Even it's just what you do but most agents don't do it yeah so so completely far above and beyond so l. was Christa specifically doing the administrative roles or was she doing other parts of Your Business as well. Kristie started off by doing all the administrative stuff so when I had a new lead and I needed to put their name into the database. She would do that when she took over scheduling for me right away like what I basically started doing was I hired her and then I every time being a mistake I asked myself. Why do I make it. The majority of the time was because I am not a very organized person. If you and I are talking Carol and you're like David. We really need to talk about fill in the blank. Link out so yeah we do. Let's do that. Friday and I will have every intention of talking to you on Friday but between now and Friday there's a two percent chance I'm going to remember that I said that and it was really hurting people's feelings it was giving them the impression. I'm not important to him. He doesn't care about me or they would say well. He must be too busy. which is the worst thing that you could ever hear my running a business so I quickly cle- realized if if this is my responsibility to remember this I'm Gonna I'M GONNA fail every time so the minute somebody would say yeah? Let's do it I would take a screen shot of the text conversation and Senator Krista and we made a Google calendar where she used my email to log into it and she would schedule what we were supposed to do. Put all the pertinent information into my calendar so that Friday today when I forgot I was supposed to talk to you and then I got the reminder ten minutes before I can hit notes and boom everything that being careless supposed to talk about where when we last spoke all the knows I need to get right caught up to to speed so that we have a really good conversation but I would work her in systematically to almost every single thing that was not a sales person job that needed to be licensed to do awesome and that's a really good tip for our listeners right just from an overall business perspective what a great way to seamlessly integrate Chris to into your system so that it's kind of behind and the scenes and that your customer doesn't have any idea that you are. You're going through this process of you. Promise them you're GonNa talk on Friday. You screen shoot it. Send it over she. He takes care of it right so it's not it's just a great little great little actionable tap. I think that our listeners can take away from that and so what she's doing this. What happened to Your Business. What would happen is. I started to enjoy doing it more because I I would have point was scheduled and it was. Maybe we're going to talk about selling your house and on the phone call. I'd have to pull up your address grass I'd have to you'd have to wait for me to work on the. MLS look some cops and I'd be thinking. I really wish that I had done this before the call you know what I really wish. I talked to my appraiser before this conversation conversation. Wouldn't it be cool if I say already talked to the appraiser by Your House and this is what they said so I started to make checklists for every different kind of call. I was going to have to set me up and I had this analogy. Oh Gee of like you're GONNA put the ball on the tee. Whatever that takes a Golfer. I just WANNA step up. Have Someone Hammy the club and focused on hitting it 'cause hitting it is the most important thing you could do in in a sales job is closing that deal making you feel like. David is in charge knows what's going on. This guy wants to sell my house so I started to realize Oh. I really wish that I had run these concer. I really wished we'd called some of these pending sales and asked them. Hey what did you go into contract for you above asking price or below and I would just slowly have Krista start doing all that then on the phone calls. I'm walking in there. Superman totally equipped right. I've got all my full gear going into battle where the other realtors were like. They were just happy. They remembered to make the phone call so I started closing that people really quick which is another really important thing with sales because if you leave that door open for too long somebody else comes in and they're they're trying to tell your girlfriend why they're the better boyfriend for her. You're right and that's when you can like you. Lose your girlfriend so to speak so I I realized that being set up was actually making me much more successful and I could take a lot more clients. That's awesome so she wasn't just doing in your administrative work. She was doing research and that research is ultimately which was was allowing you to prepare better for your sales meetings with your clients or your potential clients and and and so essentially she was she became your your coach. I mean she was giving you the data that you needed to go in and closure closure sales else. I've always I've always loved Batman. I've always kind of secretly wanted to be. Batman and I looked at her like she was. My Alfred like every everything that has to go on behind the scenes so that I can look like the superhero she's got taken care of. That's really cool. Sierra enjoying doing business a lot more where you closing more transactions as well closing a lot more transactions what happens is you get into this really cool like virtuous cycle where your clothes more transactions so you gain more experience so you get better at the job you get more confident. That competent shows up when you talk you get. Diane should get more experience and the whole thing slowly starts to get better at what I found was that I was very committed to to be the best I could be part of. The secret was getting stuff off my plate that was draining me and finding someone else that could do it so another example of how I would use Chris so let's say that you guys are buying a house and you get a home inspection done and you're freaking out because you've never seen a home inspection report. You guys are experienced with real estate but you know to see fifty things on one of those is not uncommon and when it's your first time you might have a mild heart attack seeing now that I was spending an hour and fifteen minutes on the phone absorbing everybody's fears where they would just kind of like a rip into you what about this and what about that and I can't pay for this and the after the whole thing was done they would get it all out and then you'd help them understand how to see it and they wouldn't be so scared. They feel better but I was walking away like nothing left challenges. That's that's not my strength. Thank the staff exactly. Where is that is a strength of her. She loves to be that comforting presence. When you're worried when it gets to pay your hand and say it's going to be okay right it and she would have had more time in the day so I would have Krista have that conversation with the client before they got to me she would be my sponge that would absorb all that negativity and she would turn it into positiveness. Take a negative judo person right absorb it and give you back positively at I'd have her. Give me a list of the bullet points that you are actually concerned about. What are the things that we actually have to to get fixed here. That's what I WANNA. Make sure we do and now I have a seven minute conversation with you. Instead of an hour and fifteen minutes I know exactly what has to get fixed and I would say okay Chris. I need you to find a handyman and give us quotes on this and we build a spreadsheet with all the handyman for the different area that we worked in. She could make a quick call and everything. SORTA became systemized through that process. That's very cool. That's awesome yeah and it's a really good reminder. I think it was episode. Two of this podcast that we talked to a guy named Trevor Mock who who owns carrot dot com and we had a long conversation with him where he said the exact same thing you just did which is a lot of entrepreneurs. They feel like they should be focusing on the stuff that they're good at and they should be delegating the stuff. They're not good at and what trevor and you both have said. It's not about what you're good at and what you're not good at focused on the things they give you energy and delegate those things that drain your energy because as the as the person running your business the most important thing is the energy that you have if you don't have energy eh your day shot. If you wake up in your first meeting at nine o'clock drains you you're now your business is now shop for the entire day so so focus on those things that give you energy energy and get those things that don't give you energy off of your plate totally and Batman definitely gets energy out of solving those problems not out of listening to an hour and a half of of concerns and fears so Batman wants to fix things so that should tell me where the bad guys are willing to go get every last one of recon work and try to like look at the heat maps in the you know re run their criminal histories to see all this stuff you want someone. That's kind of helping you out that way. That's deck. I had one of the things I wanNA appoint for our listeners who aren't necessarily real estate agents. There are laws and every state's going to be different but there are certain things that your administrator your assistant can help be with and then there are other things that legally she can't help you with because there are certain things in your business that only a licensed agent can do. Did you find it any point that you were you. were running against running against like the limit of how she can help you because she wasn't licensed or were you pretty much. was there nice clean break where everything she was doing was well within which was allowed to it rarely happens where I needed her to do something where she needs to be licensed hardly ever in the beginning because we had this. I'm the only one that hits the golf ball but you gotta make sure it's teed. I don't WANNA walk up to the fourth hole and have to wait for the person she it up. I WANNA come up hit the ball move onto the next next thing to try to grow the business in this world real estate sales almost everything that you need a license do would be classified as hitting the ball so she couldn't discuss discuss price price with a client but she should never been in a position where she would have to. She should've had me have all the data when I have that conversation and that she can move on to do it now. She is license. We can fast forward a little bit it. She got her own licensed so she can help with because her confidence grew over that period of time and she can do more things for me but in the beginning it really never was a problem at all got it before we move onto the next part of of our show. Let's hear from one of our show. Sponsors real estate.

What's the next step in the evolution of Stephen Green real estate agent so I think the coolest thing that I learned about this. was that like most people. I assume that when you become a real estate agent is just just a job. That's your job. You're an agent Gary Keller helping understand. You're not it's not a job that is a business and if you choose to do every job within your business. That is your choice but somebody has to do. It doesn't mean that literally every piece of this could be leveraged to somebody else and theoretically I could find someone more suited for it or better at it than me which would actually improve the business which is weird because me getting out of the David Greenstein could be the very best thing for the David Green team. If I put individuals in place that are better at it than what I would do so what we're doing right now is. I'm slowly bringing in people and training them to do a lot of the things that I'm doing so we start with the stuff that drains me the most and takes the most time so listings. I've got extremely systemized I can with I can have KRISTA. Give me all the information I need. I show up at the house. I give you a presentation. You're blown own away. You sign a listing agreement. I bring it back in hand. It's them I literally do not see that again until offers have come in and they've been prescreened and we've talked to the listing agents agents and got them to come up even higher with the offer so I don't even get involved until it's like ready to be plucked right off the tree and then I go to the client and I explained what their options are and I tell them but I think we should do ninety nine percent of the time they agree with me. I go back to try to get him a little bit. More on the deal we get assigned handed back to the the transaction coordinator and they run with it unless something goes wrong the buyers make a request for repairs or the appraisal comes in low at that point. I would step back in but I'm training people that they can handle that part instead that are just expert at understanding the contract understanding how to take leverage way from the other side in the very beginning before we signed the contract so that that doesn't happen nearly as often at eventually eventually. We'll just be me going and listening points. That's all that I'll be doing the there will be someone else doing the rest part this that takes up most of your time a real estate agent businesses your buyers that makes sense. I want to come back to that but I also want to. Dive in a little bit more on you bench there that you have a couple of transaction coordinators earlier in the Convo you mentioned that I think you said idiot three agents and two administrative people on your team. Can you give us a more detailed picture of what your team looks like what all the roles and responsibilities are of those specific five people in addition to you. That's a really good question. Okay so there's there's kind of two branches of the David Green team takes okay on. You have admin that worked for me. They helped me to sell more houses very pure. I get a client. There signed up under my name. My admin helps me to do that job. So I can do better at at at at more scale then you have agents on the team who I'm training to learn to be a crest and a colgate to their sphere what we talked about to learn how to talk to people how to have a strong presence. We go over things like frame control in a conversation so that you're taking the frame and you're talking to someone in. They're more likely to see things from your perspective. Educating them on how real estate works so that they can grow business underneath mine and were split with them. They keep half the Commissioner Nike Pop the commission them all the support and I carry all the fixed costs because when and you're starting new businesses fixed costs for wicked sink you very very quickly they benefit from my brand recognition from my training in order to accelerate their learning curve I take pieces from the transaction of my clients and I let them do it so I let them go and let the appraiser into the House the home inspector into the House meet with the handyman when he has to go measure. The House for work needs to be done. It helps me because it's one less drive that I gotta take out to a property and it helps them because they get to listen to how these people talk and learn stuff about real estate that most most agents need nine to ten years before they ever get Rapson to learn that stuff. I also let them help actually showing the houses so the clients I give a presentation I explain what's going to happen. They get introducing showing assistant. That showing assistant is going to call them every single day and say what houses did you see that you like what questions you have about these homes. Let me go talk to David and find out what he thinks then when they're ready to see houses they go show him and as soon as they're done. I call the client and say hey tell me what you thought. What did you like. Did you not like what questions do you have. Is there anything you went around an offer on. How do we need to tweak the search so it'll be better the next time and they get massive experience massive experience the most agents take them years before they could ever do this because they're only working with their own clients and it's a very synergistic relationship that it helps me and it helps them and then through helping them. It also helps me too because I'm I'm GonNa make more money as they become better. That's right. That's and that's really great really good hands on training right. You're talking about taking pieces of every part of your process every part. If you're transaction leading these people not letting these people having these people encouraging them to really just feet to the fire. Go do it and that's the best way to learn. What other type of training are you giving giving them in addition to the actual. Doing those pieces like you're talking about. You know different things you're teaching them and so on and so forth is they are they through weekly meetings or is thank. You have trainings. What kind of training process would you recommend for listeners doing something like best productivity coach that I give a percentage of my side of the commission into to work with them. That's like an accountability coach and she's a very experienced broker. She's done it for twenty years. She's telling them okay. Your agreement with David was a you're GonNa talk to twenty twenty people a day. Let's talk about where you're having a hard time having those phone calls. Are you actually making them. Is your schedule getting in the way we have to adjust to do. What are you saying. Why are people oh hanging up on you? I are people talking to you for two hours at a time right. She's kind of working with those people and had to get more business going. She's also the one teaching them very ground level things. He's like what forums. DB Fill out how to fill them out how the contract works things. I want to be like at the upper level side of the business where she's kind of dealing with the day to day stuff. We we have a weekly meeting where I basically through every single escrow that I have and they all get to hear about the challenges. Were having how fixed it what came up the way that I handled it why I handled handled this one as opposed to that one. Let's say that I'm working on a listening presentation. I mean be giving the next day I will pull up the cops that I'm looking at walk them through this is why use this competences competences why. I didn't use this one. This is why in this case I'm. I'm okay to go twenty grand over the highest price because we're seeing the days on market is really low. These are with the other agents said but this house also over here this part of the state completely different we cannot be as high as the highest combat armor will sit there forever and I'm letting them see what my thought processes like and I'm watching them to see which ones are like that makes sense. I love it and which ones are just kind of staring blankly. I don't get it. You know it's awesome so it's really it's really a two-week straight in this whole training thing that I love that you've you've also it sounds like not only have you systematize all these different parts of Your Business. You're also systematising the training people in your outsourcing a little bit with your productivity coach so again that you are not focusing on that day to day those operations types of things. There's someone else who can handle that. You can focus more on the people development piece of it which in turn turn make your whole company more robust and let you continue to grow and grow into the things that you love. That's very cool. Now I have a question. I'm going to go in a different direction. I'm GonNa talk a little bit about marketing because the the interesting thing about real estate teams. Are you started out your career as an individual real estate agent so you were David Green. I am Mr Colgate David Green and Mr David Green but once you start bringing on other agents within your team it no longer matters who David Green is because yes certainly people are going to hire David Green. They want to even green to help sell their house but would you care about is that they hire the David Green Team mm-hmm and there's a difference between David Green and the David Green team so at some point. I assume you have to start your changing your marketing from Hi. I'm David Greene. I'm the expert work to David Green Tea and this is the business that is the expert in his business is going to help you whether it's me or one of the other agents on the team so how did you kind of transition position the the branding and the marketing from year. David Green to the David Green tea very good question so I'm still working on finding the people that can replace me in the parts of the job that are not administrative or showing home stuff this I I like. I like to divide every job or task into two categories. There are what I call checklists work meaning you make a checklist and somebody follows a checklist and theoretically anyone could do that. You can hire a virtual assistant. You can hire a personal assistant. Call all the city and turn on the water for this new house that we bought. That's a checklist task. Okay then there are skill tasks and skilled tasks or something that not anybody can do that. There's a specific skill set that is required to be good at that that would be meeting with somebody in person and giving him a presentation and making them feel comfortable with signing up with you or negotiating the repairs with another agent. That's just call and say we'll give you this much money. There's a whole dance goes on behind the scenes at me trying to figure out. Are you really going to back out if we don't give you this or is this just your client. Stay in it and can I make you my friend so that I get you venting about your client. I can figure out how serious you really are so I can save my client money. There's a lot that goes into that. That's not something you can just drop somebody else into and do well so part of your business is always looking for new people new talent to bring into the business and I would argue that that's rallied for me much harder than it is to actually learn a new job and get really good at it that part has been the right person for and that's what prohibits scaling so. I will be in this role until I find a several people that can play those roles just as good or better than me. Gary Keller has a saying he says people are not loyal to you but they are loyal to your standards yeah and if you really think about what makes me better than the next agent it's not that. I have a better personality or a better haircut obviously but I have a higher standard for how I conduct act myself like I'm willing to go back and forth with a buyer's agent. WHO's writing an offer on my listing for an hour and a half if I think it can get us another seven thousand dollars even even though the money I'm getting out of that is nothing it's not worth my time but I know what my head is. The pillow and I said I was going to represent you guys. I needed to make sure that I did that well. I don't feel like I need to be there when the photographer is taking the pictures of the home. I have nothing to contribute in that situation so fine to let somebody else. Go Open the door in order to replace me though I need to find someone who standard is just as high that I can say to you guys this is Mary. Mary is going to be the one that helps you with selling home. She works with all of my sellers. Mary is better than meet. You guys want Mary so that's that's how I'm working to get myself completely out of business during the transition phase to answer your question we use the word we a lot in fact. I just said we a lot of it is I if you look at the production for my team. I'm ninety percent of it. They don't really sell a whole lot of houses right now. Mostly they're helping me. It's almost all me and my clients that are that are doing the work but I'm still constantly saying we when my assistant calls someone she has to say David asked me to call and tell you that Phil on the Blake Right. It's creating understanding that is okay that several people are going to be helping you with this. As long as you know. The standard is the same for everybody and David is still in charge of Al.. He knows what's going on. It doesn't have to be mealy calls you and says hey we scheduled an an inspector to come by the home of this. Would you like to be there but whoever makes that call has to do with the the same standard that I do and that's as I grow as a business person I start to realize the only difference between a chick-fil-a somewhere else is the standard that chick-fil-a has that's what makes a franchise franchise possible is when you go there. I went there this morning actually and they I remember I finished my order and they said my pleasure forget that they say that you don't hear a lot of that the bay area right hi pleasures not very common where I live right but at chick fillet that's what they're going to have to say and that's probably what I would say to people who are looking to grow and make more money at their job you raise your standard entered in money will find you. I promise you even if you just can't get along with anybody at all. If you raise the standard that you hold yourself to how you do your job how you serve your employer you will make more money and for people growing their business in the role at me. It's the same thing find people who have very high standards so even if they didn't get paid would do it just because that's how they live their life. That's awesome and what are you doing to find Mary. What do you do you know Mary the the person who's going to have those David Green standards. What are what the types of activities are you doing on a daily basis to try and seek out those people who can do those things to those standards that you established you know hopefully in five years we do this again or last less and I can say I finally cracked the code but to be completely transparent this. It's hard the hardest. Pirbright it is absolutely it is I could not agree with you more any business any uneven job in which you have a leadership role in responsible for finding the right people is not is that not the absolute hardest part right is just getting the right people on board and just finding them. It's especially when I think the economy is good. People don't want to have to work as hard because you can get away with less so what I the way that I've done so far is that I don't ever let that myself get into the mindset of I'm at work. I'm not at work. I think it's very dangerous especially her SPA business owner. I am always at work always twenty four seven. You're always on so I'm hiring a girl. She's she's starting Monday. We we have like seven part. Take your hiring a woman. What did I say the backlash coming up. Now you know just just a wonderful talented skilled woman and she starting starting on Monday and I found her. She was working for a towing company a very small company but she's running the entire office. I mean when you walk in there was very are you clear you're not paying attention. You don't know what you're doing. I don't even know if you're awake right now. This girl was doing everything and I watched her as I was as I was waiting with my buddy and I noticed that she never stopped working. She never lost her rhythm when people would come in yelling she nevertheless recall is very impressive and I just realized that would be a really good person to talk to so I do this with when and I go to get a cell phone. I pay attention. Are the sales people really good right are they are they are they certainly without being pushy are they taking advantage of opportunities without looking like a slime ball and if they are asked for their business card right. I want to start staying in touch with those people. I invite him to a meet up that I mean the half where I teach people about real estate I do it. When I go restaurants with the with the bartender or the wait staff I mean when you're going to the mall. The person who's selling Cologne might be just itching for a new opportunity and they just don't have avenue that position and you have to train your activating system to always be looking for that. I WANNA follow up on that because I think is really powerful in. Let's let's make this even a little bit more day right. So this person this woman who's starting for you on Monday that you found in the towing office that you just running the show and she'd be the next Rockstar on your team. Take us through kind of an actionable plan on how you got her onboard because there are plenty of busted small business owners who do recognize that talent but especially in in the the real estate world. Let's be honest like we talked about earlier. Not always the greatest reputation right. There's a low barrier entry. How do you go about recruiting that person's. That person wants to come on board with you. You're so luckily for me. Williams actually has a material that makes it easier for you so they they have what's called a Keller personality assessment. which is a personnel segment? I I think it's witchcraft. I have no idea how it can tell you so much about yourself. Just from taking a test when I read mine I was floored without accurate is so I'll send that to them and they'll fill it out and it will we'll come back to me with a very long description about this person's personality how they react under stress how what their social scale is and then it also gives me what's called the job match report which says with all the twenty-eight positions at Keller Williams franchise has this is what their high match for all the way down to a low match tells you based on your personality. This is a role they would probably like so that's my first screening tool. They don't necessarily have to be a perfect fit for buyer's agent. Maybe if they're a really good fit for a single agent that's fine because it's a sales thing but if it shows all the sales stuff is really low and they rank really high for accounting type stuff or numbers. You don't want that person as salesperson unless they have a very strong track record that shows even though it's not their personality can still be good at it. That's my first step then. I bring them in and I basically verify that assessment with them. I make sure it's accurate grit and in doing that. I asked a lot of questions. I think most of us don't ask enough questions in general interview and I would say like let's let's go through a little thing here. Carol Gerald told me what is it about real estate. That's appealing to you. Oh I just love I love designing of homes and I love all those great shows on TV that show us what our homes have have potential for and I love seeing people walk into the front door of a house. That's GonNa be there someday and be like wow in helping them get that house okay and are are you more motivated by the financial means that are. GonNa come from this career or from the emotional spike. You're gonNA give when you know you help someone get a house and you can help design it for them. I'm going to be completely honest honest with you potential employer that me personally it's all about the emotional thing and being able to connect with people and help make their dreams reality okay so if you have to take take time out of your weekend or away from maybe your niece's birthday to go show that person houses because that's the only time that they have free and you know that you're gonNA miss out on one emotional oceano spike to get up potential other. Do you think you're going to make that decision to do with the best you have or. Do you think that because you don't really need the money. You may put that off. You know I never looked at it that that's a really good point. It's got to be honest. It might not be my top priority so those types of things or why you WANNA ask more questions right. Everyone's going to tell you you. I really WANNA work in real estate. I'll ask them okay. Do you think you'll do well. They'll say yes. I'll say what will you do. Well and they'll tell me I'll say. Give me an example of a way that that showed up in your life before for this excellent. It's probably without probing right. It's being without it's just saying tell me a story. Tell me more about yes exactly yeah. People live talking about themselves and they're going to share a story that reveals all the Info you could ever let it out or another thing. I like to ask him. If that's if that's who you are how come you're not doing that in the row you have now. Why are you coming to look look for this opportunity. Why didn't you do it. There and there's legit reasons. Why like this girl admiring. There was nowhere to go. They were never going to pay her more than fifteen dollars an hour. It's all the company could afford. She had that that made sense to me but a lot of the Times people are will tell you what they wished they were doing with their life for who they WANNA be. It's not who they are right now and they come work for you. They're going to be the person that they've always been and so. That really helps verify what they're like. Then the next step would be at what we call a thought process interview where I ask a bunch of pre-programme questions like what did you to prepare for fair for this interview. Who are the three people you most admire. And why do you admire them. Gimmie three two three examples of a time that you were supervise well. What does a good worker mean to you. You you go through all these questions and that really helps you figure out like their values. What does this person value in. What would they be like if they worked there. Then we get into a little bit more serious stuff where we actually go through an employment history you talk about the last four jobs they had what they light with the learned what they were disappointed by and what they wish had gone differently and and I get a really good feel for if you see most people you'll pick up the pattern. This person gets a job and when it's harder than they thought it would be they slack off right this person starts something and runs with with everything they got and if it's not easy and it doesn't come real easy within three months they lose interest right every time this person gets a girlfriend his head gets into the into the clouds and he can't focus on whatever is going on and so you're looking for those patterns because you know that's what you're going to get with yourself and then the last part we do is my favorite. That's what I call the motivational interview. We have have them. We start with a piece of paper dried into four categories. The first category is job. Next category is money and then they get to pick two other things that are really important to them in life. Most people pigs like family or friends or relationships or spirituality something like that and I run into this exercise where we start off with job and I say okay. I want you to imagine that I walk in this room right here one year from now after you've been hired and I say Jane. How's it going and you say it's freaking awesome. David could could not be better. Tell me what this looks like from the job perspective and I make them actually give me a list of okay well. I'm already already been promoted twice and I'm running this side of the business and I'm really good at this and then I dig deeper. Tell me how you did that. Tell me what went well. Tell me what challenges you had to overcome do it. Tell me how you feel inside to know you've done that and I'm basically trying to pull out of them. What is their heart's desire. Their deepest strongest motivating eating put things that drive them and we do that for every category. Now I go to money and ask the same question okay. I'm making three hundred grand a year. I'm driving this kind of car. You're have this much passive income. What does it mean for you to have that passive income. I feel like I'm finally not the loser. Everyone thought it would be so me how that impacts your your your mindset every day when you wake up and I'm digging very deep a lot of the time during that right and at the end I will circle all the words that showed up some writing down as they're talking repeatedly and those words you circle is what shows me what kind of person this is right. A lot of the times driven will show up ambition or happiness or whatever it is that that person's looking for you will see the pattern after running through that exercise then I just WanNa make sure that those things that drive them are powerful motivators within this space. I made our listeners to understand how gold this information. I'm serious so so caroline I spent fifteen in twenty years in the corporate world and I think I speak for both of us rights. We've sat through plenty of hiring seminars interviewing training things and the companies buddies that we worked for literally spend thousands and thousands of dollars to bring in trainers to essentially take a day to tell us all the things that you just summarized in ten minutes literally you just summarized in ten minutes how somebody can take their interviewing game in their hiring game to the next level so for anybody out there. That's listening to this that thinking about hiring their first or their next or their hundred employees fourteen member rewind ten minutes end realistic because that listen to it again and again 'cause Dave rarely just told how does how to get to the core heart and soul of somebody's character in how they're going to have that will align with what is available for that job and that is something that is not not an easy task to do and Dave just broke it down hardcore absolute gold. I if I if I were GonNA talk about this I would have devoted hall and that's that's why we should be listening to the BP money podcasts with rockstars Jake BP money. No that is absolutely everybody buddy she did alive. Scott everybody should be into the BP money podcast and the BP real estate podcast but they need to go in the BP money podcasts and talk about what money you can make by following the advice you learn about on the business where the real goal. It's one big happy okay so that was absolutely fantastic. I I love that. Thank you David question so now that you are a world renowned podcast host your best selling author literally early you are an investor and you spend a ton of time doing speaking in bigger pocket stuff but you're also the head head of David Greene real estate team. How do you split up your time and how do you. How do you ensure that your this goes beyond? Just just the David Green Team but everything in your your life. How do you ensure that. You're devoting enough time and energy to the things you're doing that that everything can flourish. That is a really really good question what I do what I've learned that I have to do in order to make this work is I can only take on start a business or take on a project that has some form of synergistic quality with the other stuff that I'm already doing so I love to speak and educate people about real estate. Which is why I'm involved bigger pockets. They have an awesome waits for me to be able to do that and they have the best reputation around for real estate education. I wouldn't be able to go start like a helicopter pilot business business while doing this it would it would pull away from one or the other but if I'm speaking to people about real estate investing and I also mentioned that I sell houses and they should call me when they wanna the House Acura they wanNA THEY WANNA bite investment property or they just WanNa use these principles that I've learned to represent them in the in the purchasing of a house. I'm killing two birds with one stone own so to speak. I gave my thing and I found clients. While I'm there I can also safe. You guys ever find a house that you WANNA flip. Call me. I'll make you a partner in the deal and I'll walk you through Rua we do. I'm now lead generating for flips so there's one hundred hundred and fifty people that are they're not. All of them are going to want to buy a house or sell a house in that moment. Not all of them are going to want to have their grandma. Grandma needs to sell her house that I can flip but the more things that I do real estate related the higher I increase probability of finding some form of lead out of that free education that I just gave and it's free for them to they want to be able to refer someone their friends and family to an agent who's actually going to be good. They want to find someone that can buy a house cash and show them walk them through how to do it. Whatever the case may be and I can then tie them in with. Hey you should be listening to this podcast. You should be following the bigger pockets Youtube sube you should be reading blog articles here and so while I'm bringing them value they're bringing me value and that's also synergistic those really only relationships. I wanted my life at this point. If I don't don't bring you value then you shouldn't have me in your life and if you're not looking bring me value to that. I don't really need you in mind. It's perfectly fine to have that mindset but I think that that's the key. Is You have to find synergy in what you're doing. Excellent excellent that is it's such a well rounded approach right like you said you're. GonNa stay in the mind. Space that your rain. You'RE GONNA maintain your expertise in the area. You're in an branch out a lot of ways and continue to grow in. It works for everybody all the way around this especially because I think a lot of times when we try and do too much. It's not just trying to do too much coach. We end up doing things that require us to go through a new learning curve and allocating curve takes a whole lot of time. If I want to go start a new business business and I need to spend a year learning that business. It's a lot different than if I go start a business that I already have the core competencies in the core skills because then I can do that that new business in five hours a week or ten hours we fifteen hours. If I have to go through the entire learning curve I need you to devote myself for some period of time which means I'm ignoring or. I'm not not putting the time into the other things that I need to be putting into. Its that's so good. Jay and that's I think the inexperienced business people don't grasp how important that is think about if you are a professional the NFL football player and the your season ended and you wanted to find something else to do to make money during the next six months when you're on the off season. If you tried to go become a professional national soccer player that learning curve would be changing your entire body. You'd have to lose a ton of weight. Your endurance would have to go up your muscle. Mass would have to go down. You'd become much less of the fast twitch muscle person much more of a slow twitch for endurance it would be completely different but if you went and played rugby minor adjustments would have to be made and you'd be playing shape right away you kinda gotta look at business the same way. I was able to do so well as real estate agent quickly because I was already doing wells real investor. My sphere knew me the as a real estate guy very easy transition to make. I had systemized how I would buy houses out of state. I had checklist for everything that had to get done. I just applied that same principle to all the stuff the had to get done in an escrow now. There's maybe ten times more things as an agent but that principal will work in the same way wasn't completely new learning curve and I think that that that makes you look much more successful than somebody else would be. Who's doing something completely different like you said this jumping around from being the thing that doesn't have anything in common yeah and that actually brings up another thing when you do that. You're reinforcing the brand that you're working so hard to build so when you build a new business that's completely independent of anything you've ever done. You have to start creating the new brand after staff sired art. Just build on what you've got. Why would you keep reinventing. Credibility is the hardest thing to build and staying in the same industry that you're already in order to have that credibility and you don't have to start from scratch there. You're finding expanding your breadth of knowledge and it just permeates throughout the whole process so before we get into the a former David I have. We have one question. We liked to ask our guests near the when we get near the end of the episode. What type of advice do you have for anybody. WHO's looking to become come a real estate salesperson or started team. Even maybe if it's applicable take it a step beyond real estate. Just anybody starting a business or starting a team or getting ready to hire someone. What's another another piece. Just one piece of gold nugget advice that you would like to share. Maybe something you wish you know in the beginning that you think is so super valuable now. I really want to write a book on this topic. Because is it is maybe I'm passionate about it because I'm on this end of it trying to hire people in his so hard but I've just developed a huge passion for you really should crave excellence in whatever you're doing. You're vocational wise whether you're a house flipper or a house painter or a bookkeeper. Your goal should be to be the very best you could be at that thing and I think what irradiates me is. When people say I'm not having success at this area so let me just abandoned it and try something else and hope that works out there and they're just bouncing around from the thing the thing hoping that they can find something. That's easy the advice that I would give the people that want to start. Something new is great. You should go give it a shot before you do. Crush rush it with what you're doing before you say. I want to go to the next thing you should be able to say I am the best waiter at the restaurant I work at and then maybe go find a nicer restaurant. Ah with a with a more expensive venue and bigger tips and be the best waiter at that restaurant force yourself to your brain to have to go through recognizing patterns will make you successful recognizing using how the eighty twenty principle plays out in that environment. I learned a lot of stuff about leverage waiting tables because I would get busboys. Do a lot of the stuff that I didn't have to do so I could take on more tables Abelson. Take more orders and make twice as much money where the other waiters were didn't want to tip the busboy an extra twenty bucks. I was happy to give him fifty bucks. If and then I can take three times as many tables right. I wouldn't be good at this. If I hadn't have done that I and so that's the first piece of advice I would give. People is don't think you're GONNA hit a new relationship or a new job and immediately. It's just going to be easy. You're GONNA do great the same things that made you suck where you are. Now will make you suck when you get to the next thing but if that's the perfect fit for you how heartbreaking isn't going to be if you fail at it because your work at the wasn't good or your attitude wasn't good or whatever the case. Maybe S S awesome yeah I so I heard a quote a couple of weeks ago. Maybe it was a month or two ago and I don't think it was on the show one of our guests but it's really stuck with me the quote even I have no idea where I heard it but the quote was nothing is good that could be great and you have to think about that for a little bit but basically what that saying is if you think you're something is if you think you've done something in well. If it's possible for you to do it better if it's possible for you to a great then it's not even good. It's not anything you need. You have to compare something not against against objective but how good it could be and I did a horrible job of explain that but think about the listeners to think about because it took me a little while to really internalize what Med ed but once once I did it really it changed my whole perspective when everything I loved. I loved that quote well. The world is looking for somebody who can do something great. Every single boss is looking for someone with high standards right even that most of those bosses WanNa get out of that role or they want to expand into more of it. What it holds us back is finding good people. They can you guys could be flipping ten times as many houses. If you had people that could do the jobs you could do to the level you could do it. You didn't have to worry about things going down. That's the hardest parts that keeps you from doing more so for the people that are frustrated that they don't like the job that they have or. There's no opportunity. I'm telling you it is everywhere. The problem MS that you're not ready for it. If you were ready for someone who would probably already approached you and said. Can you come. Do this thing guy guys like me are looking all the time for that person. Who's doing really good. Every time I walk into the bank and I see the girl that's irritated that customers there or the guy who doesn't even bother looking up from his throne to greet the clients like I would never hire somebody with that type of an attitude You spot the person right away with a really good attitude who wants to get into stuff so I feel like if people in the world woke up and realized if I start doing really good at my job I will have a lot more confidence that make it easier to get my next job because I know that I can do that job and I can make more money and then I've learned things two different jobs to give me skills now the third job I get that I can do even more they would find themselves in in the right role pretty quick update David. I love listening to you host podcasts but let me tell you something the this is this is where you belong giving advice and being the guest on podcast 'cause. This is absolutely awesome. Okay we could probably talk for another the two hours but I think it's about time that we jump into the next segment of the show when we call four more where we ask you four questions that we ask colliver guests and then at the end. We're going to give you an opportunity to tell us more about where we can find out about you and get in touch with you and learn more about your business sound good wonderful okay awesome so I'm going to start the first question but I'm going to put a little bit of a spin on it because typically we ask people dave. Our first question is what was your first or worse job rob in. What lessons did you learn from that. I'm going to challenge you to not tell us about your job as a waiter. 'CAUSE I want people to go back and listen to other be podcast. I bet you that I think a more well known part of your story. Challenge yourself to dig to some other unknown facts about Dave Green and I I our worst job in lessons that you learn from it. I got one for Ya Awesome. I think on the BP money podcasts. I think is episode twelve where I talked about the waiter think so one thing I've I've never talked about this is my first is my second John. My very first job was at baskin Robbins because that's the only place I could get hired and I worked there for about four months before I jumped next door it to the Togo's which was a little bit better. I got that job at the Togo's and within four months I was a shift manager and then about three months after that I was like domain manager and I was eighteen eighteen year old kid that was it was very surreal to be running a store with ignore teen adult but you feel like you're a kid. I was still like in high school. Maybe about senators right right. There's no ground. Tell you to make sure you're not just going crazy. It was like why would leave me with the Castro Day. How do they know that I'm not gonNA steal it. It was surreal but I would. I I basically ran the store. I would order the stuff we need it. I would do the scheduling. I knew what everybody got paid. That job that I took taught me if you work really hard so I could only make so much money at a Togo's and and when I had to leave and go to a restaurant where I could make more the guy was actually really upset but what I learned was I had the confidence is to leave and go to somewhere else because I went through the ranks so fast so I would watch the guy next to me making sandwiches and say I got a bill to bake faster than him. I have to be the fastest sandwich maker here I would study. What are the hand motions that you have to do. I'm going to grab the bread with my left. Hand grabs the bread with my knife. I'm going to bring into the same point every single time that I would practice that when no one was there describing the bread and the knife and bring together right then the sizing and systematising even your sandwich yes because ingrained in the fiber of your being yeah and when it was busy I would stand out from all the other employees because we had this lunch rush ripping through and doing a really good job and everybody else was going slow. The bosses see that that's why we WANNA make you managers. They just saw how fast I was working and anyone can do that. It's not like I have some crazy hand eye coordination no other human being can have. I was just more a purposeful about doing it. Now would get really good at okay. I know that I need more. Turkey and I'm running out of it. So when I walk by Grad the roast beef I'm also going to grab Turkey and on the way there I'd see that Guy Atas Nama lettuce and I grabbed them bag of lettuce drop it off and they did you even know I needed that. They thought I was Batman but I was training my brain pay attention to what was going on in the middle of stress in the middle all of chaos which came in very handy as a cop which came in very handy waiting busy table so I see now those foundations got laid because I was giving my best so what I was doing and then that opened up doors the future sandwich making is good. That could be great. I I love that quote. If you could be great you and you're just good. That's you shouldn't that'd be happy with that exactly exactly thanks for explaining that much better than I was able to question number two. What is the defining moment when you decided decided that you had the entrepreneurial which you ready to go out and do something on your own late bloomer that area I on the on the disc profile I was very high sea and the next was a d when I became a real estate agent and had to be like the boss would carrying all the responsibility if it fails. It's on me. My a D score actually got a lot higher. I became much more bold much more assertive. I'd make decisions a lot quicker but as a high see we don't like risk. We don't like things you can't control or you. Don't know what's coming. I was I loved investing because it was a numbers thing I could rely on numbers make every decision. It wasn't until I started selling selling houses and I became the top age in first year and I started getting a lot of people saying you're really good at this and I knew inside. I don't even really like this like I can't really tell people that but this. This is not my thing right like listening to people. Tell me how scared they are. After working as a cop for ten years is very hard like oh the sliding glass door sticks. That's really scary yeah yeah. I know what's horrible. Isn't it houses in other states that I've never seen and it's it's going fine and they're worried about the screen door. Having a you know ripping it I think that forcing myself into those positions and seeing that I was successful opened up at this whole side of my brain that I never had confidence just flooded that area so it's not like a cockiness. I don't think I walk around acting. I could do anything and who are you guys but definitely there's a lot less fear about new things because I've done enough new things and realize my brain will recognize patterns that I will figure this out and I will at least be decent added if not great that led me to start to crave entrepreneurial experiences so now I'm starting alone company. I'm opening alone brokerage so that we can start doing loans as well as real estate. There's a huge amount of synergy either. I already know how loans work because I have to do it to make the deals work a lot of the time I know more than the lenders do a lot of the time my clients coming to me and saying here's the two options. My lender gave me but he didn't explain go. Can you help me figure it out. Why am I not just doing those loans. I have very little anxiety about that. Whereas Oh God five years ago I'd have been terrified awesome really good growth in a very short amount of time okay third question. What is the worst advice you've been given in. What did you do with it. The worst advice that I ever got was when I was first buying houses in two thousand nine and ten and everyone was telling me don't do it. The world's going to end the sky's falling real estate investment. I only bought one house a year when I probably would have bought three or maybe four and I if I would have bought four houses year instead of one I would my network would be about two million dollars higher today. Just from that one piece of bad advice and what I learned was that they meant well. These are not people who are trying to sabotage you in their perspective they they really thought buying real estate was risky and it was a bad idea but they didn't understand finances. I was taking advice from people that didn't understand what they were talking about and what I did with it was was. I learnt don't do that anymore so now if someone wants to give me advice. I'm happy to hear it but if they don't have a tracker success in that area. I just don't really give it a lot of weight. That's great advice. Awesome love it. It's it's very easy to tell somebody. Don't do something something bad could happen. It's just too easy you can't you can't lose. I mean I'm so they're they're protected. You'd rather take the worst case scenario Mary where they missed an opportunity than than they got crushed so yet it's that's. That's a great great point. Okay question number four what something David Green has splurged on but it was totally worth. It was worth it totally worth it. I Ah Okay probably wars. Oh I had to answer both questions. Yes Ah yes. I've got a note. There is so much attention. I knew there was something I was remembering that mistake that I made and shared the mistakes. I bought a very cool car when I was like twenty one years old. I knew a guy that owned a car dealership. I had saved up a lot of money. When I graduated college. I had one hundred grand in the bank just from waiting tables how so I wanted to buy car and he said you can have anything in my entire dealership just at two hundred bucks to the invoice that I paid for it so that like my transport fees are covered so me thinking I'm a good businessman. Hispan- went to the showroom floor the coolest cardiac. I'm getting the best deal right took them off a little bit but I got this has ever seen rouch mustangs. They make these things rockets. Absolutely I bought a row cougar. There was only a hundred of them that were made by h twenty one and yes and it was so nice I mean tricked out lowered cool body kit. The problem was I use it as a commuter vehicle. It got keyed all the time it had these low profile tires that were constantly going flat and I ended up like I should have bought just a nice little Honda for like ten thousand dollars. Here's a guy it was a terrible by wasn't wasn't just that I beat the crap out of that car which I'd never should have done. I missed a chance to flip a house because I was seven thousand dollars short. I didn't understand partnerships. I wasn't listening to bigger pockets. At the time I just didn't. I was seven grand short of the money I needed a partner on this deal and I couldn't do it and I lost about forty five grand that why would have been my I half of that Prophet and all I could think about was that stupid card. If I would have bought the Honda Outta had the money you would've made me forty five and the opportunity cost of that cool car was huge in the end right like I could have been the down payment on a Ferrari or something to bend a little better so that was my splurge. It was not worth it. You don't need a cool car. When you're twenty one years old Zach. This was two thousand and three year so two thousand three seven fifteen years so let's see if you would have invested that money at ten percent interest over fifteen years. You would have a heart attack the nickname you'd be J. Salts in the the trust me okay so so do we get. We get a split totally worth it. Here's the good one when I first I met Brandon. He asked me to go out to Hawaii with him and all I was thinking about. Was I gotta pay for plane ride. I gotTa take time away from my business. I'll be losing deals while I'm there. I don't WanNa take the time away from the business because I'm going to lose too much money. It ended up being one of the best investments I ever made. Brandon became my best friend. I I love having that guy my my life. My relationship with him is very solid. It led to me becoming the CO host of the bigger pockets podcast. I learned a ton about him and got to know his family and while I was there I was so refreshed that I took three listing appointments via skype on on the computer and I came back to three listings that were all million dollar houses and a super good attitude and everyone was happy to be around me and I realized this is why I people keep saying you have to take a break. Be Like you're not your best when you're just never changed. Love your car just pinning it and going going going so I thought that was just a a fancy splurge. That really shouldn't have taken but it ended up being a great business decision. Yeah sounds like a best businesses flourish ever unintended. Lee So very very cool okay so to wrap this up David. Here's the question where can our audience find out more about what you're doing and connects with you the best way to connect with me right now. How is on Instagram and I'm David Greene Twenty four if you if you follow me on there and send me a message that's your best chance of actually senior message and getting a hold of you if somebody wants to actually like apply hi to be on the team or learn more about getting their licenser as real estate agent they can email me my email actually on instagram. I'll give you my email on there. Just in case I don't WANNA get blown up by like spam spam bots or something for putting out here and then I'm on bigger pockets DOT COM so brandon I co host the bigger pockets real estate podcast and you could mess his beyond bigger pockets but I probably most likely to see if they do not instagram. That'd be your best bet awesome awesome David. This was absolutely awesome for those who have been listening since the beginning beginning the challenge I put out in the intro of this podcast was to see if you can pay attention and figure out how many analogies David Greene made in this episode sowed. The answer is five. There are probably more but I got five. Five analogies in this episode accent is trying to hold back to I still had so you still had five so anybody. That's listening that that took the challenge from our intro. The answer is five David. This was awesome unbelievable content like I said I'd I'd like you better on this side of the nothing you're dot grade on the other side of the microphone but I love having you on his chest and I'm sure listeners are GonNa get so much chatted this so thank you again for being on. We really appreciate you Batman. You are amazing. We look forward to having you back in a couple of years to see where the David Green team has gone. This was a blast. Thank you very much. I appreciate it Awesome Angsana Actual C. Section that was awesome. I really did not want that interview to end. I think I could talk talk to him for like another hour or two just like about everything not just the real estate stuff we could have talked about the hiring stuff. We could've talked about the branding stuff. That was just. I really liked that interview. What did you think oh. It was awesome not in a million years. Did I know there was this other whole complete side to David that I was completely. Lee Unfamiliar With and I was just blown away by all the great tips he had and again.

The podcast for all your schemes, dreams, misdemeanor, conscript, hustles anyway, you're making money. We're here to talk about it as always. I'm joined by my two oldest weirdest and best friends in the world. The identical rose, Merck twins to my left joining me for the first time in Jeffries of Merman because head gum kicked us out there. Insolvent there in solvent or in between studios right now, we're hanging out in Jeffrey's apartment. It's David Rosenberg. Folks. Oh, new catchphrase trying new things lately going through something like, yeah, I mean, I notice I'm all injured. Introduce Jeff when it come back to this notice and on my right in his own living room in a fold-out camping chair, look in comfortable sipping on red wine. He just made some delicious chicken wings from scratch. Jeffrey Rosenberg trains about to go off the rails. And on my left, making his glorious return to the pig pen, new father at super producer. Hey, baby, daddy. From the other side, big pitch a catchphrase he's back. He's. Wild, hey, dick me. Oh, boy doesn't want me. They're moving in Jeff. I'm looking for roommate. Turns out the kid didn't take work out. I tried. It wasn't for me. Good luck. One Montessori materials? Yes. Suffice it to say at best. I mean, maybe university of Maryland night too, but not your fault them the turps God? No, I if he if he doesn't make it least lower Ivy league, he's not a man. When I retired about the dark of the world Brown, I think we agree brand. Happy with this Colgate skates. It that's sub Ivy. Yeah. I did not get in there. You apply to Colgate play, big time to. I've always been at Colgate boy every night, brushing my. With the founder, no one hundred percent. Until school tour parlay that paste empire into college smart, maybe super right. Or your boys call? I have a kid. I'm thinking a lot about education. What reports college essays about fucking. Got to learn to play in hockey. It's good to be a strong leader leadership qualities that I include. Let me go to you. I talked a lot about diversity. Wow, you're on that train. I mean. Like I don't wanna be around people that are similar to me too. Horizon directly, Jeff. I don't wanna be around these Jews anymore. Also, I don't want to be around people like me as an identical twin. Got cut from the past team junior year and then made it senior year. 'cause my other friend Victor was on the team and he got me on. I mean, you were pretty. That's perseverance. Yeah, that's like plug in your friends and you on it was like Michael Jordan mixed with like cronyism. Damn. We also want to shut out our our other supervisor miles Felix who is here, but him and knicker sharing. Mike. Yes, each half is good, I guess. Okay. All right. I mean, this will be the most well produced episode today zoom except for the refrigerator home and. Behind, and it's. We turn your fridge up. They're spoiling off. What about my rotates? Three EJ. You guys see that COSCO's still going to sell their rotisserie chicks for five. I saw article. I didn't click through on the article, but I saw. It was really up in the air about whether it was going to stand five. Why way? I think I missed this story is date. Costco was going to raise the price of rotisserie chickens above five dollars can't do that. And you cannot do that. And we wanna rotisserie chicks for five and no more. I actually got fifty chick game about a year and a half ago little about the price point of retrieve chickens because they're so cheap, like a full chicken and I was talking to our buddy gets more about the price of chickens life. Well, no, it ends. This is about five dollars a pound the day they go, they're gonna, go bad, throw in the history that what you get, you get more life out of it. You have to chickens about to go bad and it's like hanging out in, I'll twelve the like chicken breasts and chicken. No, the full chicken raked history chicken. Well, no, before for history to move it over to the rotisserie section, you wait till the regular halt. This chick. There cooking the oldest chickens. That's actually pretty fair, right. I think that's a fair assumption from somewhere or debated it with my Colgate men time and time again. I like, I think maybe I might wait till my fortieth birthday. I'm going to get a rotisserie chick like a roaster lake. I'm talking five. The ronko run. I just can't right now. Delaying it. Ten years. I can't right now crank. I just can't no automatic, but like slowly Danny to hand crank it for cheaper than a cost. I guess some of the followers might be interested in the stray cat situation. My Cutie will stray. Cat that have been trying to. No. Do you want to go into the beef? Could have been talked about the cat little kitty boy. Yeah, please is a cute little dirty cat seen. He's a mean motherfucker. At least I thought, and I have been befriending him. If you follow my Instagram, you've seen. I figured out that if I put tuna for him, he loves me. So we opened up the other night. He was over there that one way. Yeah. Oh, yeah. We got to wait until the tunes about to go about in your cupboard. He old then we throw in the rotisserie and then I bring it out. So I brought out the tuna for him and he let me pet him a bunch. And then he came back today. You're putting strikeout heading straight cats. I'm curious about it's very dirty. I wash my hands, washed my hands immediately. Got power, watch that searched, outdoor housing for fair. I think I'm going to try to make him my my pet that lives outside. It's going to get is what it's going to become well. I mean he'll kill the rats. Yeah, also kitchen forgotten. I have an oncoming rat war, Jeffrey, right. I think I want this guy in my side. I've researched Farrell outdoor housing for getting him ground rat instead of tuna though, so he gets working on it. Well, he's got to kill the rat first and then become like decadent tasted. You article about someone that was like recording the rats in the sewer, New York knick. This podcast is about. A long time. We talk a lot about. Cats rats dogs. Or talk about it. We're developing, go, go on with your elaborate story. Just a bunch of rats laughing under the sewers. Us food. We give them free food every day. Of course. I think they're watching CNN and they're like, oh, we got to ship. That's a CNN burn. That's right. Anyway. Danny walk by while I was petting the cat and then he's like, do that. He was like, you know, that's not like a real street cat. And I was like, what do you mean? He's like he lived across the street forever. The guy moved and left them there. Now he just lives on the street which is like super fucked up. But now I'm like, I can. This guy wants to come in, maybe I can haven't been outdoor indoor kitty mostly outdoor when the rats comic seventy. When the rats come, I let him inside eat away. Eat up by all means eat out at what is this little dome? Asya look like this little. He's a black and white. I don't know what kind of black and white cat. It's like a little mini barn. It's sponsored by, it's like the tile top line, like seventy five bucks. And it's like a little barn with a pitched roof and a little tiny hole for the cat to go in no windows, and there's nothing on the first floor. So like if it rains or floods, you got to put him bay. When the second second four bed though. And then it's made with materials, would that insulate from the cats. Warm, five, six using. Three, three or three feet by three feet or something. It's if the bigger it is the hardest for the cat to keep warm is what I learned supposed to be smaller. Make sense. Anyway, I'm hoping to trap them make my little baby. Survived the wind. He has. He did last winter. Yeah, he did a lie sleeping under the ramps. A lot of handicap brand. I would go under car a car parked on the way. The residual heat heat. Starts in the morning. Cats are up at Bill, boom, though. Bye. Bye. Anyone thinking about maybe having an outdoor feral cat as a pet. I love it. What are you going to name him? It's already named Lucy short for Lucifer because he was very mean and evil to for that. What do you mean the same? I made it up. Okay. So when you said it was already named right by. I named it year ago when I first allergic to cats very much. So I told my mother, she said, I don't know if she wants me touch the cat to be honest. But you know, people grow out of allergies. It's not so bad. So I'm honestly now my nose is a little clogged, but also I might just go get tested and see what's up. Sarah. Think about this loves cats would have a cat not interested in a dog and trying to talk her no dog for a long time, I think made why not just bring it in the house. Maybe the cat can't come in but and preferred to be an outside cat, then it doesn't hurt the couches and stuff. Suspect, Michael, he likes it outside. We haven't. We have a full house for him. What if he wants to eat some figs in the back? He's welcome to the figs. I'll bring them out front. You know, he is a, he now I don't know how find out, but I'm cool that Lucifer and Lucy, you kind of it's either way ends up being a girl. Keep Lucy. What's gender? Mr.. Diversity? Yeah. Why do you? Why does it. It was just like a curiosity thing to be on us. Wait, hold on male and female cats, probably dispositions, yes. Yes. So it's interesting. I'm looking at all these men's rights books hanging out in your apartment. Wow. Don't look at the books actually. Crowd boy with that. Top left book, the white one, it says. Taming lost aiming lust. That makes more sense. Tanning knows I haven't read it, but what's really back in the day. What's it called when you have sex with animals. -ality that was like normal. Really people used to bang pigs and all the time. In seventeen eighteen hundreds. Yes. Nick used to actively have sex with co. I. To Thomas Jefferson. The backyard's that book to me. Do the bit about shitty books that you're at. You wanna taming crimes against nature. In the early Republic, this is the one this is a Royal is a review, taming Las performs a remarkable double feat of Stoorikhel reconstruction. On the one hand in uncovers the tangled roots of a pair of highly anomalous trials for BC -ality in the late eighteenth century New England on the other. It unfolds abroad, panorama of social, political and sexual culture of an entire era, paired objectives and former writing that is strongly construct him l. expressed market with. Tail light. You're so proud of this. I also want to know why so many pages are bookmarked highlighted sticking together to read the description. In nineteen seventy six as revolutionary fervor, waned in the age of reason to cold in eighty five year old Massachusetts doctor was convicted of beastie -ality and sentenced to hang years later in seventy miles away. In eighty three year old, Connecticut farmer was convicted of the same crime Canoga in the same punishment. His name was David Rosenberg. Prior to nineteen Eighty-four practice, a criminal trails, neither Massachusetts Connecticut had executed anyone for BC alloting. Over a century, though there are no overt connections between the two sets. The similarities of their particulars are strange and striking. Historians Durant Benetton in Richard d. Brown, delve into the specifics to determine will social, political or religious forces could have compelled New England courts condemned to octogenarians for sexual misbehavior typically associated much. May maybe that's the solution not to like get into talking about sexual assault, lots in the news. Maybe if we allowed people to get back on this kick. Start being is going to be like, okay, fuck animals. Yeah, no. Rule to the animals. They don't know what's going on. Right? You're raping animals. Sali's people, rape and solution. It was just a pitch. Okay, but rain story. Pathetic. Fucked a few goats when you were seventeen. Can't you reform and then go onto the plank. Got me started on that scumbag cabinet pigs or like the go-to. I think pigs are the go-to because dogs will bite you like pin, right? Oh, no one was talking about dogs. Farm animals getting fucked, but I think it's getting fucked doing the fucking right. Doing the fighting. There's always like that story like a horse's dick, went up a guy's body and he died, right? Always always every day. You know that old. I do. I will describe the. Picture the drawing illustration on the front of it. It's a man. It pretty cool. He's, he's like. He's being struck by lightning history by two. That's what they say. It feels like he has his hand on the head of a dog and then also in the illustration, aval. There's a sheep, a cow, a horse AOL look various shape every single animal. And this is just like, this is cruelty. This man's ascetic is a vote. Yeah, there's there's some work. The man was hitting the ground anyway, taming lust. Doreen s? Benetton and Richard Debrecen check it out. That's farm animals. Y'all smell that hit it. The. This is a segment of the show where we call out someone who has wronged as someone who has crossed us. Anybody got a got anything to say. She, I don't know, man, I'm hoping I got your shit. I didn't get my shit. I'm told that it's out for delivery though. The final update on quest, it's finally out for delivery. I don't think this is gonna be the final update, but in what sort of state do you think your shit is in? I would be happy if it came damaged really. Rather than stolen. Okay. Why don't you take out renter's insurance? And then when you get it and it's damaged be like rob him, I dropped, but I actually should that there's an audio document, but we only hundred. David. Well, you should have renter's insurance anyway in Nick. Maybe be you ever insurance talk to me about what do you mean? I I've never had. It should get have home owners insurance now, but I didn't have it when I was rented. Oh, you should get it because it also protects your stuff. If you're driving in people break into your car and steel renter's insurance covers that as well. And it's like, you know, if you have a party and someone like fucking does too much coke and dies or like slips on fucking about the coke thing. Let's say they slip on a step Geoffrey. You have outdoor thing. You have a party, they slip on a step, hit, flip those pre party. Let me let me say a person with CoCo deeds. But they bleed out on the floor. They will replace the rug would couple cover the medical of something that your party. Insurance for like if someone gets hurt at your house during the party, don't trust it. It's like all major company when he talking about, I don't trust big corporate shouldn't, but you still get it? Yes, I'll say I will, but I won't. Okay. I don't care. All right, beef, Geoffrey, you gotta be. No. I mean, I made chicken wings lose. I was having guys over. I guess I am. Okay. Complain about offering to cook chicken wings. No, no, no. I was going to complain. I was going to be about you beefing over my chicken. Crispy enough. They weren't crispy enough and then you put them in the broiler and they were great and everyone told you so. So what are you complaining about help. Say you text me asking me bring them for HAMAs. Yes, yes. Did I not only did I get one container? Where is this. The the minimum charge was five dollars. This was four dollars. I ended up getting two containers of wow where chips it has been played. Yeah, where's this Hulme's do. Where's the Hulme's? I'm Chris Barnard up in the Bronx.

And I turned in look because I've been kind of like just like kind of ignoring him in just talking to Brad, I'm like, shooting off and then I just turned it look at him dead in his eyes. No. And he had taken like hidden looking at me and like staring this beater. He was trying to be tough guy with staring at me and took a sip of his whiskey when he was like put on the mockery.

Yeah, tastic men was one of our few friends that we knew there mean him and Sarah, it was a no liquor wine, no liquor wedding, wine and beer. And like a couple bottles of whisky is a whiskey more. So it was like a lot of Ryan brought a bunch of weeks drove up from l. a. and we had gone super-duper high, the after party had hot tub. So my my whole stance on hot tubs, you want to be the first in the tub, and there's one hot tub for a party house. You want to be first in the tub. Last one out first one out two. So we were the three of us were in there getting like smoking enjoying, very, very high. And Ryan goes had finished his drink as, hey, take some hot water. We're also saying, poured all over me and I like took it out. He because he was standing on the water. We Puerto over him and he was like, Sarah, try this. So then I it over stare. And then she was like, holy shit, Mike, try this, and then she poured all over me and then hard cut to us so stoned. And I'm going bathe the baby. And I have like Ryan is floating as like a little baby. I'm like bad. The baby. We're just pouring hot water. We're, this is like out of cupped hands almost like crack on the head type. It was the weirdest thing that bid. Like kind of like does the head scratcher shit tranche. Who didn't say, who was like staring, no. No baby the baby. That's the new hot to move. If anyone's gonna hot tub, take a Cup of hot water, stand halfway out and have your partner poured all over. You like that cold water would be your body was cold. It was about fifty degrees there. Where was it? Big bear. California I've heard of guys didn't seem like the the baby bit. Was it weird picture? Seems like something you guys twins in the bath. Oh, we still do. What were you wondering. Why like. How do you guys get changed from like your wedding attire till I cut Tubbataha there. Three par room. Our room was at the venues Kunkle during this part. I don't know wedding stuff I picked. You know, we're gonna talk about Kunkle wedding for the next twenty five minute. Have you guys noticed the super size, but we board in the corner. It's very, never marks on it. I've seen. I mean, we've seen seen the standard size one. What's us like two percent bigger that you print it by accident. Fifty percent bigger. Well, that's why you can't sell them, but I can't move them. I can't heavy too big shipping is prohibited. Don't make boxes outside coordinate just boxes. I was thinking about. Way back to go to the Brooklyn museum when they had the box exhibit the Bowie cheeks, going on. Still some of those boxes. I'm thicken. It's pitched remember. I went. Well, there's a bookstore down the street, kind of dislike, makeshift pop-up thing. That's like, yeah, yeah. Down the street. Like half a block down. I went over there. You know, six months ago, the guy showed kinda faked interest in a little bit. And then said it was more of a Halloween product halloween's coming up maybe to stoop sale. But we board thing think people by, well, I think you'd have to have your own candy that I think that know. Yeah. Think your market for that is hipster parents who have young kids in the neighborhood, which there are fifty one hundred dollars. You learn them in with candy for the kids decorations. And then you're also like, I'm also sell this for parents. If you're interested, you're saying Halloween when the kids are coming around on Halloween night because there's going to be parents with the kids. The kids get the candy trainer and try backwards. Trick or treat you get triggered day harder during the day kid? I think kids under seven. They like, you know, don't wait 'til 'til, nighttime to go trick or treating do an early. But on a weekday. You have to do it at night? No. Well, I think most people following our weekend there like five years old though. Does. And I think the parents would think I was a little like opportunistic if well, don't get me wrong if you're not opportunistic, but that seems like they're going to call some sort of a thorny on me for pushing my style if people can sell old shirts on the sidewalk. Oh, what do you for. For. I would try to just do it at this point anything you can so maybe ten, ten want dude. Loss to make. Price because of the misprint. Why did you just not pay addition? Because I had already put a down payment on on some boards and actually thought they were kind of cool. Big, big and beautiful. Triple b, how much? How many. How much aboard I would like I. So for. Probably probably ninety eight. You think under ten. So why don't you just break even in home for ten bucks. If the end of my bed neck, no one's going to pay fifty bucks for the timing night. Twenty. No one's giving you twenty bucks. But I feel like if you're taking a Bill out of your wallet, you don't know and carries tens anymore. ATM's don't spit out tens. Let's go to bed stuy. I mean doom for twenty if you want. But I think by eight o'clock on Halloween, you're gonna be busing those down to ten desperate pleading for people to take them off your. Escalating happen, but there on that on a patriot level. I can't move them through mail. He's already scammed enough of the fans. Okay. But I haven't scammed any fans. Okay. These were other people. Shrunk, people don't forget about our satellite beautiful show episode actually, ROY about idea. Maybe actually, I do have an announcement that I wanna make okay. I meant to do this up top, but I was talking about a hot tub for about ten minutes. I did a Twitter view with this company called tap.

There's this right now. My hair's too long only winning, but does it hug your head a little bit. Head hug. Peru is what I'm so it's less weight more compression? No, that's correct. But the weight ads is where the compression comes from, what I could put like a like a stocking on my head, and that gives me the compression without the wait.

It's just it's all embedded within the lining, of course. And what sort of material we're talking about talking about that. When we're talking about the, of course. No. Nylon, plastic pellets. Of course. Oh, that's where the weight comes from. The hat is actually made of a polyester cotton mix, and we actually blended Flynn.

Yeah. All right. We're good to product will about your about to find out Jeffrey. Compression thing or the way I still feel like the compression. Okay. It's compressed inwards on the head. It's compressed downwards. Okay. Okay. So it is wait? Yes, less compression more weight. It just doesn't sound some comforting to me. Plus investing. Seaming that I'm talking about twenty minutes.

This feels like, you know, heavy is the head that we're the crown. Now I have like more shit piled on the neck that wears. Right? Like it feels like the literal way over the world as opposed to like feeling like I just like moving down than like, have you used the compression Lincoln? No, but I do like a heavy blanket, which is why a little torn here. Why do you think you have your blanket hug? Yeah, feels like a hog. And. Supposed to someone. Please talk.

Go into a store and I want your technician Saotome e, hey, this is what your weight needs. This is what's right for your run on a treadmill where the Cup is a husky neck and your and you could take more weight. Yeah, you know, I was laying out and yes, sleep number because I was way out until you did that. And then I have this little little good right now in the perennial you present, right? You're aware of that hayne your brain solace like micro Pius, PTS, reverse it help reverse. All right. Jeffrey. Keeping sandbags in my half three weeks out. Investor, both look, I, I actually tried on my girlfriends. She has ankle weights. Now, kind of like the velcro things for working out those for like three hours today. I took them off and you feel light afterwards, so maybe that's fair. No, but I think they're on Amazon all throw up of fulfillment promo code later on the patriot. Cool. I'm in a customer investor, Dave big idea, love it, love it. David, I tell you sometimes there's just a product that you gotta try and when you put your hand on my head at first it was too hard. And then when you loosened up, I really liked it. And again, my final question is, can I customize the wait? Actually we can't answer that question too. Late Knicks here. This is the difference between my vote. What can you promise me? We can do that right now. You gotta have your cabinet member come on that. That's the whole promotional. Aspect of it for sure. Our cat numbers involved. Yeah. I'm willing to pivot on that. Then I'm in as a customer. Under a two point, three Nick customers. David, I wanted to count you when you started off. I haven't seen in a while and I thought, oh, this is what the podcast is become, but my fucking God. Head right issue, least everything. I think it kind of very nice. I'm in investor. I'm glad to be on team Davey. Teen Dave miles dog miles? Yeah. Do you wanna vote. Oh, I'm in. Could be therapeutic thing. You put it on for five minutes, take it out. Great. You know, bounces wearing a hat that says Stonehenge on it right now. Yeah, I've been a Stonehenge on the brim as well. Let's hear for Davey. That's great. A little work to get their row holding. All right. Next up in the pig pen is more Nick manic of the two twins. He's got a slender frame, strong joh-, broad shoulders, a nice pair of glasses on the mustaches looking good. It's l. Hefei Jeffrey Rosenberg. At the beginning of the episode, did you the whole thing? Michael? Did I say the abridged version when you intro me as just the chew. Yeah, fuel to pose a question, please do look at me. Oh, what's what's like, how am I wearing my clothes bad while I'm at home? So I can. To where it's comfortable. Actually my shorts, believe it or not? Yes, my shirt. But let's move beyond that to the broader picture. Okay. How am I wearing certain things loose? Well, sure. Lose that. Great. Yeah. Got everything is everything loose. Sucks. All right about it actually cut off the circulation and because they're a little higher there. Right? And what what do we notice when people where maybe pops moms? They wear high socks for a long period of time. Then you see them at the beach. They got these hail feet pale lower caps, but also have you noticed anything else about them? Lack of lack of care, Michael. What do you think that is? The socks are bad for the hair. You're not. You're not breathing, but it's. Fractious rub section maybe? Yeah, maybe one of the elements involved. Is it not the one you're thinking of? Well, I'm not thinking of anything. I'm just having a conversation with my buds right now. Well, then other than friction and heat. I don't know. That's pretty good. Mike, that's pretty good. Anyone else have any ideas. We are trying to figure out the reason why people who wear. I sucked don't have hair on their list. You need to the rest of your hair Brian. You never noticed that. That's still do not have. They're, they're racist the mile. Yeah. I also showing us a mothering those hair follicles right smothering hair. I mean, that's a heat situation situation. Yeah. Net doing here is taking that sock tech. Okay. Tech or an unfortunate side effect. It's a side attack. If you very nice continue. And what I'm doing is I'm displacing to another part of your body where maybe you don't necessarily want a laser hair removal for five nations. You can actually put it anywhere you want with my bare pads. Okay. And bear pads are sticky pads where you can put anywhere on your body, you leave him there for inordinate amount of time, really and within within three to five months, actually. Wow, you will no longer grow hair in that area because you've killed those follicles. I mean, what happens if I have to take it off. Take your socks off at some point too. It a sticky. So my reply is multiple. It can maintain it stick. Can't it? Actually does maintain it stick Michael. It's a loose stick almost like a posted stick off. What about sweat. Mean you sweat on your socks all the time and yet they don't hold on what if I don't want here my chest. What do you? How do you do that? Well, we actually also offer how do you beat gravity friend? Thank you for asking Mike. We also offer a small eight to twenty four ounce aerosol spray can if you need re sticking, you just lately spray the pad and you can re stick it. And that will last you about another. I'm sweating though because the sweats gonna keep coming out of the pores Michael, and I'm very glad. Yes. What this does is c. pores are if you look at a cork board. Right? And you have a bunch of pins in cork board, right? Yeah. Okay. So everywhere, out of that cork board, you're not finding if we're going back to the back here, we're going back to the chest. You're not sweating all the poorest because there's not a pain in every poor drew. Continue. Imagine each pin. I'm not done. Each pin is poor. Okay, and but you can't put a pin in every poor? No, because poor isn't you're not covered in pours pores are on a surface, right? Your your all of your skin, pores. If it was free, that's how skidmarks, right? But there's space between the Poor's Michael, I guess if you're sweating, you're not getting bigger, selling your skin and shit. I mean, yeah, you're not completely covered in pours a lot of force. Well, there I would say they're twenty percent. Yourself, right? Yes. That people are only twenty percent poor. I would say twenty to twenty five percent. So what we're doing. At least sixty percent even if it is sixty percent Michael word. If it is three times as much as you Michael, it doesn't matter. What bonding to next. It might not know what's the word. Force work and we're bonding. We're bonding to the that thirty five percent and you're sixty five percent poor scenario. This skin. Kinsey, you're saying that your material dodger. Dodge the poor neck because. Like I said, and I may not have said this at this point, it does have breath ability and sweat is wick to the outer layer. So this is a wick. It's a polypropylene. You're lucky. I don't know. Ceded polypropylene bitch. So like you explain to me what you what is killing the hair in your estimates, a lack of oxygen. We're also matting it down enough that the Falco can't grow out of so. Okay, go ahead. Dick sidebar. This is I'm very worried about my investment in caps at the moment, but. But people who are building who were hats, all the time don't become more bold because of the hats or maybe they do. It's the jury's out. Maybe they do, but go on, go on. I mean, that's the pitch guys. I think the sock thing is people that are wearing the socks like that for a decade or two. Right? Accelerating that that d- growth if you will, by having thicker pads, a little less breath ability factor than your average. And for the wearer of these pets, they stretch in their flexible. We do have twelve percent. What if you go to the beach to can, I don't have to wear the paddled time like we're slowly killing news here, follow. Here's my thing. Is this more convenient than shaving. Shaving is a lifelong process that no man or woman wants to have you ever shade down over ten years by covering on my voice. Six to eight months. You said three to five years? No, I never said three to five, three to five years, six months miles of it any until on the poor situation, getting a lot of conflicted data. What have you seem what percentages are we looking at? I saw numbers from one million pores per square inch to six hundred fifty pores per square. Well, that's a big one now we have, but then in that case, we end to find out the size of the poor because that doesn't give us any indication. Yeah, but a math, but you. How many finit so do the math, but I'd have to know the diameter of the poor. No, that's how you figure it out. You're there is one poor preference. What does that mean? How many square inch funny. Flay one inch thing skin. You have a million pours right? Do the math, but if the pores are incredibly small could be half an inch of surface area of skin, which is enough for my fucking bear pads to Bunn to you. My friend RA I'm gonna send it around the horn. David. Are you in as a customer and vegetables for the bear pets? What body part are you focusing on for me myself the shoulder, Dave. I don't like the shoulder here. I don't like the upper back here. I find that Bray, very cumbersome. You are your and you think that's okay to say that some people would prefer things a little different, you know? So not you. Well, some, I mean, some people wear hats because you know. They don't like to show the top of their heads. Maybe I don't like to show the front of my back. Fair enough. All right, customer investor, both. But I think the price points here enough where I would try also don't like my shoulder hair. What if we actually had the same exact pours? Isn't that interesting? Interesting. We'll talk about it off cast, of course, patriots. Maybe? Yeah, patron Jeffries investor though. I'm out in, oh, I think it's a semi bad idea. Hair removal. All you have to. Isn't going to go for rice pointing in Dave. Do you have any Intel on that on your price point? Yes, because he said the price. Note. Don't forget to ask you to fall. It's actually nine ninety nine for a pack of ten. Does that change your vote, Pac, ten Pac, ten borough what is packed. What's the. Need more than one. I thought I would just. Maybe your friends need or you want to do multiple parts of your body and you to do because they come to strips. Okay. How big is a strip? Three by eight inch strip? Sorry, three wide eight along three long, eight wide. It's the same thing. Yes, it is the same thing. Yeah, it's far as I'm concerned, Jeffrey. As a customer. I mean, I'll try it also where my friend. As far as investor goes, I'm not really interested. I don't understand the idea. It seems strange in to me. Have you ever had a war on your body? Yeah, and get those frozen off. Yeah, duct tape works actually duct tape. Does work, duct tape, work, vape works. Duct tape. Can Garrett awards because mothers, yeah. Yeah, yeah. How long do you have to wear the duct tape to head neck too week. Frozen. The fuck in when you get it frozen, it's still it becomes bulbous does not wanna hits the actual skin like it expands because it's like a blister duct tape works. You don't look any less a full where at work. Yeah, you guys are well versed in the work culture while it was one of those things like puberty where it goes away? Yeah, I feels like you. That's why you're wearing the hadn't. He words not feet Wirtz Nicorette. Investor, both out on this one. I feel like if I, if I really good idea desperate enough to remove the hair that we're talking about, I, I could lose some of my lower back here and be fine with that. But if I reached the point where I want that out, I'm gonna go get laser. Hold on. Hold on. Let me say this. Okay. If you were to get wax and you have to take a pad and rip these hair follicles out of your body every call it once a month for the rest of your life. Is that more worth it than using the beer pad for six months to never have to deal with that again, I'm not to rip it out, not gonna wag written. Not gonna wag written out of your body laser eight. You're not gonna laser eye. You're not gonna leave this. I'm not that I don't need to change it that much. I'm saying, like wearing these pads, that much is going to be as much. No one's gonna. See, you were in the Pat. It's they're almost like Chris strips or even the knows things that you put on to get rid of your black heads. Okay. Let's think of it like that. Those are non me for like three to five the problem, but you don't have to wear like through the three to five months. He can take it off when you go to bed. I think that's actually. So now every day I have to add to my routine, like throw on your your hair part of a beautiful process, Mike, and if you're not willing to step because you know what my body's beautiful because you're already married and you don't need to to win people over anymore. Okay. 'cause when you Papa shirt off and a girl seize your back here or your backer some people care and maybe I care. Okay. Maybe it's not because they're wispy and they're cool. Curly fund thickness. Take off your shirt seen it now. Show me. But if that's the result is what I want. I just wanna pop in and get laser and then be done with it. Well, laser takes six seven sessions because you have only there for an hour and then you're out, you're talking about seven hours. We're going into a doctor's office. I my casual homeware pads, bro. But this is three to remind you that we are in my home. All right. We're investor both. Nick dude allow miles. Yes, I can propose a pivot. Oh, we got miles on Mike, the witch folks ma-ma miles where so it's like a body suit that you're you're by, but has the material you every time you go to sleep. Just put this thing on you wear. Yes, you go on the website bodysuit body. You wanna be entirely hair removed about him. Custom body soon. Kathi Ramadi pivot on the Mesa. Doc body sack, put it on, you go to sleep your sexual though into that suck, but you're saying not the full body way we do. You know as much as you want. Like that. Well, let's give it up for Jeffrey. Do you guys? Will you guys pivot if we go with the bucks clapped, it's kind of guys, you know what time, and it's time for the mutter who utter, we're all taking. Taco from mum and beer micro. What do you have in store for us today? What phone pitch. I'm going off the phone. You never do this. Sometimes it's fun. Yeah. I normally go off the dome maybe this time I just had to remember the name of the product. I think foods and sations are one of my favorite things about modern day society. Think about when the Chiluba came out when when when. They're like, there's no more buns. It's chicken bitch, and that's fun. New foods and saints. Yeah, are can be fun. And it's also like a funding to recommend people, and I'll say this talk to a barbecue. What's something that you'll grab on the way Batato cell? No. To exile. It's it's, it's not a may. It's like an accessory to the to the meat cheese. We're talking about Hawaiian sweet rolls. Guys like wine sweet rolls. All right, hardy. I know what that is to be on us what you don't know about sweet rolls. I don't think swine you trash miles. Do you know about alliance wheat roles. Is going to go back. You learned about wines everywhere. It's like it's like kind of like sweet, yellow breaded. You learn about it. I mean ten years ago number. I'm with Mike. By the way I'm with Mike. This this weird Nikki, you now a thousand percent. The main kind of bun. That's the difference. These this is not like rich foods, Jaffer fucking hood. Kitano kings wine. Swiebel's of these are like standard barbecue, bright, yellow, this they're like bright, yellow. They're just like Berbon little slider boys. Sure. Yeah. Yeah, they're like bread and sweet, and it's like. Okay. No, it's bread. They're not biscuits pitches there for sliders there for anything that's law, potato bun. It's bad. It's a sweeter potato. They're great for the barbecue sauce, barb it, no, it's like a big barbecue joint. Can't believe this. This is crazy. I know what they are. I just didn't know what they were called. I mean, anyway, people don't know what they are. Just guys are miles. I don't understand you guys don't eat food miles seems like is big on Allard. True. I'm confused anyway. I'm mixing what it is, but picture very sweet potato role. If we. Sweet taste, the texture, chewy fluffy of a potato, but making it appear to the shape of a pita actually happen to think that pitas are some of the best sort of vehicle for a sandwich. No, Nick, you know what? We were always imagine a big one shaped like a pita that you could stuff stuff into. There's a slit in the middle bud, and there's a cabinet. It's a cavernous opening, but it's still fluffy fluffy. That's the problem with pitas is that they break sometimes because they're thin and they, this is like. Vicar now you're not gonna wanna go crazy on the SaaS, but like what's nice is that like it's also going to be more absorbent so like you're not gonna have Netflix through. I mean, I actually think. A Hawaiian sweet roll pita could be a revolutionary. I think there's a food truck that's like, yeah, we serve food, but we got sweet potato. We, we read us on the menu and it's like. Sweetly. Good name, right? All give you depths on that. I opened the Florida questions. Gimme gimme the range of what your stuff in their barbecue obviously stuff. Anything you want personally, my favorite is to go lettuce, tomato ham, cheddar, mayo, and regular, like maybe a little, maybe a little mustard regular sandwiches. I think you can do. I think my RO something I'm gonna cook up for myself is a little sweep a little mashed potatoes, a little gravy and a little rotisserie chicken with the skin on deboned stuff into sweet leader. What about like more like a Middle Eastern dish, like chicken, kebab home asleep to buy? We can have a little kebab knew what we do is like a little layer of Bobby shows, sort of absorb the first sort of line of defense of the sweet Rita, and then we're gonna stuff. Some schwartman they're and they're gonna put a maybe a little bit of a, you know, a Greek salad mix in there just to get some brunch motto want. Some crunch low keys a little to me. Meech crunch crunch some of your meat chips. If you want white sauce costing disease. Anyway, I know it's like a simple idea and you guys don't know what this is, but sometimes I'm just like, this can this week. It's like it's just like a krona member. The krona. Yeah, this could be the new sweet rita's specs on like diameters, size Peterson. Okay. Pitas thickness, thickness, it's much thicker. I mean, I think we're getting you're talking about an inch thick, so it's like a hamburger, Pedo must Amer a row. Well, no, it's a Hawaiian sweet roll. What he's saying. Not. What that is you're saying? It's the thickness of a Hawaiian sweet roll. The thickness. No, I don't even know what Hawaiian. Sweet. Well, you pulled up a four and it looks like it's a two and a half inch, or I don't really use. Don't like it. It's a, it's a Puta Cise to incher and it's a Hawaiian. Why are you calling pita then if it's not pita diameter, the pita shaped bitch and it's two inches thick? Yeah. No, it's why it's a hybrid. I thought it was pita thickness. Can I remember shit if you. That's too big. What did you big for bird. Food. Taste bread is so light like a burger. That's three times the size of a regular. You're exaggerating. Phone, you got buns on both sides Jeffey. That's an inch one inch, but it says big, a two wins. That's an inch and a half, at least my friend. That's not. I think that's fine. Don't you want the heart exterior to hold all the juicy you're putting. That's why. That's why it's more absorbent in. The Browns, just. Point, it's not. Why do you wanna know why you wanna? Because it's absorbent hard light, those opposed being thin and dense. Michael rip down to a personal juicy burger and a potato pun. It's gonna seep through the Nazis through. People don't mind Yvonne. All go to shit, don't eat it. Amount you're around. I'm out. Customer investor, both a link, some scared. Well, what all do. Yeah. As you should be now eight. The sweet where you don't wanna sweet. Read with the little chicken schwartman to Zeki. I bleeding. No leak. Jeff. Don't be talking about pours, get dumb ass. Thanks. Put porous tape, tissues to your skin. You, hey, we'll go away. Fuck you. Dude, you know, pure exterior with this. Aforementioned bread that I can't remember what it's called wine sweet rule. But what if it had a harder exterior that it well and it doesn't because that's not the best. It's a big ass. Hawaiians understand Meyer mentioning pita at all. It's nothing like shaped with the sled and you just say circle then a bigger certain because it's fun. The people are stupid Jeffrey. So you have to be like this new thing is this plus this. That's why for bread, it doesn't make sense any market, there's no pocket. If it's light slices of, that's that are open because if the pocket then it's gotta be thick enough that all the juice and good whites, two inches thick. It'll bleed through my won't bleed through customer investor. Both dude, Dave, just one quick question for Nick. Do you think it will lead through? I think it'll bleed bleed through through. Tiny, tiny pitch. It might soak. It might soak the bread, but that's a good thing you've ever French dip. It's a taste thing. Sometimes. Breads still ever gonna full foot long Italian sub. And then you put that second six inch sub in the fridge that oil and vinegar seeps through within twenty five minutes. I'm telling you to leave your fucking sweet rated the fridge, like a freak, throw either get less subway or throw it away. If are you in or not? Did you talk about the call your thoughts on the league game on a sandwich? Let Nick answer the question. You asked that he's debating it used to be at the baiting. Mike also was willing to buy a lot of his high art. So I'm curious about sentiments lie. I'm the product of the thing itself. I really wanna taste. It's like right down my alley. The two inch. Digging your heels in on the two inch thickness. I'm thinking concerning to me. Yes. You have a. Why? Well, because I feel like Fitch. The business, the bread ratio to whatever and put inside of it. That's how jumbo stuff offer sweet Rita sandwiches on that out. I've just saying that's where that's my concern on the fence about that. I feel like a thinner version of this. I'd be a hundred percent in and I'm want your. Don't want your. Thick Kennedy, half it can be half that gets that bread and twice because the pita, you know, can we talk about an inch. Give an inch. I'll go into the quarter. Honey side total. It's an interesting quarter, thick, thick. I'll send it around David cousin viscera both inch and a quarter min as a customer in an investor. Becerra both inch. Now. All right, Nick investor, both hundred percent and I wanna I wanna throw miles on this one to investor, both both baby. The one idiot that's left alone yard. He pivoted though multiple time. I'm allowed to one time. Order, and that's in. You could run the tape on that ship. Boys spirit and spirited and long first half of the episode. Let's take a little break. We'll come back and we'll hear from the nation. Yeah. And we're back and I wanna clear the air, Jeffrey who love you. We went out each other pretty high view to, but I mean, just maybe I'll make coin sweep. I'll maybe I'll try to do this all the bear pets too. If you just bear with us. All right. You're one sweet Rita. Wait, hold on l. smell that here. Related. Really. Really. Really is the kick cash. This is the segment of the show where we salute fellow Hustler's in the real world, make it happen guy guys. I guess this week it's us interesting. This is because at around three in the after today I emailed you guys.

Can I have been real quick though talking about social media that there is someone following fake accounts on our Instagram, rewrite. Some someone's doing what. I keep deleting fans, and I've kind like a thousand a couple of weeks ago and now seventeen hundred eight in Caribbean. You mean the account itself is following feature, Vincent good. So I looked it up and you know there's like different third party platforms that you can use to see like who, and follows. You can choose like a lot of these third party platforms are like, yeah, we can do this for you, but we're allowed to like post on your behalf or follow people on your behalf. And I'm like, all right, that's the problem. So we're like, you say, what third party got hooked up and we don't have any. Oh, really? With us. Right. You change the password. No, but I should actually don't. And I want to hear from Evers hacked. It will leave the password open. Let's have a dialogue. I, this is very interesting. I, I don't know. I don't. I worried that someone would be trolling for two years without me knowing. Can I say not surprised for sure. You know why just me that is responsible for this, your social media, ru. Abdicate the throne. I don't want to advocate it, but I would like a little bit of shared response. The most work you do the second most work? I do the least I'm not gonna take on any more responsibility. What I said? Yeah, he did say nice, appreciate that feel like I used to do a lot more and then I got sort of depressed and anxious over the Pesca barely did any. And I've slowly just, yeah, for sure. My presence is a present, kiss my ass. Federal little here, the car fives coming out aturday a little. Five years. The Macon been waiting. All right. Well, as I was saying before you interrupted by do like the mystery of Instagram. But right now it's time for my favorite part of the show. It's time to hear from to lucky fans who submitted their schemes to us to be read on the podcast if you want yours. Right on the podcast said yours to ideas at twelve Asian dot biz tweet at us at twin of Asian pod Facebook, I review or of course call our voicemail and. Michael. Well, I don't remember an we're going to have to go over the jingle again, but we're singing jingle whether you like it or not. So tell me what the number is. Please people don't like the jingle people like the jingle they do on person didn't like the jingle, and then people came out and said, they did like jingle. So what's the number David? Of course, it's going to start with the one six, four, six, nine news, ten ninety two. We don't do change the to wait one, six, four, six, nine, new six, ten. Ninety. One six, four, six, nine, two, six, ten to one six. Six. Six, ten, nine, two, good. All right. We'll play that Boyce spill Geoffrey, you gotta bud. What up cared. Oh. Yeah, dude. Please do. I respect that. Nice. Whoa, certified. Be so funny. We're that weirdo. And it got cut off there. Not at the price matching system? Yeah, sometimes voicemails get cut off. Wow, that is. I've got to say that it's a fantastic idea. I'm sorry that that got cut. But I mean, it's actually one of my favorite ideas I've ever heard what else. Rats here, but what are some of their options besides maybe you can have a beat, boxing squire, even Nick mentioned earlier in the podcast, kind of like your drum roll little drummer. Always require having an instrument headache. That's the main. How else do you plan to make an entrance with? Beautiful backless coun- and you spin when you nobody's knows your coming in, they're not put a. Like right when you're about to come in someone like a fake waiter drops like a tray full of glasses. So everyone's like turning in that direction. It's all. You know, because maybe there's maybe there's like a spectrum of Squires where you can have a bit of a more inconspicuous look if you want like we've planted a waiter, we're dropping glasses, or you know, you go full. The gold package, which is the trumpet people turn. And then just like, who is that man in that gown, God, it's backless. That's a good one doves walk into those fly around. Oh, yeah. Whoa. Hey, sorry. Just flew to destroy fan his blood everywhere, feathers in my drink. I love that idea and I'd love to. I mean, I wish there was just someone who could make that, but let's give it up for him. All right. Next up cut off once again. Please. It's hard. I don't do get a lot. The emir bid. No. Oh. And of pitch. About that. Tool tanks tank. You'll tank. Love it. Love you. Shit. Oh, you better believe it. Vibe. Thoughtful boy, and I like his idea like this is Google voice number. It does that transcribing on, please keep safe and keep screaming. Which is kind of still works. I like the hot water bottle is a very European. The New Zealand. What for kids, it's like, basically, if it's cold, you fill up a sort of rubber sleeve and you fill with hot water, and then you hold it and you go to sleep on your chest, like cuddle with it. Why. Keeps you live in the country maybe or whatever you don't want to spend money on. It's kind of silly to fill up an entire house. Body warm, you know, just saying it's pretty cool. I mean, I also love to change a culture and bring it to over to America. Bring that water hot water bottle of them into it seems like it'd be pretty fun right when I'm called. I put something hot between my legs right. A water about hands, water bottle filled with what? Yeah, hot water. I imagine how hot water bottle when I'm hot. Like I wanna put something cold on me. It's forehead or it's it's I hadn't. Then you laptop that left have crash, you're feeling become sterile, Nick. Hey. Hey. Who's today doesn't look at you in the eye mice, mice to really. I mean, I loved the idea and I love his like I just love his demeanor overall. I mean, so it's a dual tank right? Gotta be dual tank, but why? Why would you be tempted to drink. Like they're, they're like bottles. Were there like kind of like pads fill like floppy little rubber? Yeah, yeah. Why did he want to do? Why? Because say you fall asleep, but you want the hot water on you pre sleeping piss. So UP in the middle of the night, and it warms you up again after the hot water bottles. I don't know it right. This is hot enough is hot as it needs to be pretty hot. Two, it's warm. It's the temperature of your point, six degrees that came out a couple of weeks ago that that's not the temperature of the human body. No, the bodies that ninety eight point six wrong. What is it? Ninety? Five point two, no way. Maybe ninety seven point something. But what what? It's ninety? Eight point five. As far as the argument here you actually have miles. If you look above there, I have that that radar. Most of them there. Yeah, it's the gun that chose the. He very much unfair technology, I believe is that really worth ninety point to ninety eight? He's cold. His is boys. Do the mouth. Do the mouth hand ninety five? This is Mike hand. That's what I said. Ninety five baby. No one's ninety eight anymore. This is days mile. Climate change. One hundred degrees. Dave. I don't need that right now. Just ball that we've been looking at for the last hour. On what do we get ninety? Seven. Oh, you're cold. Right. Let's give it up for the for the water. I wanna say Jack, we'll give Jerry Jerry. Jerry. That's the Philly kid, Jack, Jackie, Jackie. Yeah, let's give it a little bit. Well, good job.

If he had a chance to be an anchorman. So I wanted to ask them about anchorman ghost and the fugitive because it was my understanding that he would have had roles in all three the lead role in the fugitive. But he thought it was a stupid question. So ended that line of questioning Meena was telling me here before we got started that Aaron Rodgers is getting a good amount of criticism today. And when a quarterback who's that good is under five hundred. I'm not the guy who you hear on here. Calling for coaches to be fired but good God McCarthy. Everyone can see how great your quarterback is. How do you not do more with him? People are doing the thing that I hate which is sending around a screen shot of Aaron Rodgers ignoring a wide open Aaron Jones for check down and Rogers has ignored some easy. Reads thrown away balls this season undeniably, and it wasn't perfect yesterday. But I hate screen shot. What's football so much because you've you actually watched the play you can see the defensive linemen are clearly in his way, he's stepping to the left. It's not the read the wide receiver wasn't open at all. But if you capture it, and then it's exact moment. It looks like Aaron Rodgers is wrong. I hate that so much Green Bay fans. Don't know. How could they've had it. My god. Like watch some dolphins football guys watch the bucks watch the Jaguars and stop complaining about Aaron Rogers. He's not been flawless this year. But I it boggles my mind that they're blaming him that he they think he deserves like more than you know, twenty percent of the blame for this season. I don't think he's he's ever been fully healthy this year. Yeah. I mean, his left knee just. I don't know whether he's still wearing a brace. But I just don't think he doesn't. He doesn't look when he's moving around. He doesn't look as lubricated as he has in the past. He looks like he's lumbering a bit. Yes. Although he's still his best throws. Are these improvisational crazy rolling to the side impossible? Heaves. I mean, he had two of them to throws that no one else in the NFL aside from Patrick Mahomes can make last night alone. What do you do though with the idea of an I don't know how McCarthy sleeps at night with this? You decided that it was better to trust anyone than the best quarterback any of us have ever seen like why would you ever like here you go? Here's I almost wish that the Packers played ignoring that its fourth down because this guy is so good at what it is that he does and yet on fourth and two he says I'm going to trust the defense that on the last two drives gave up one hundred fifty yards and I'm going to trust them to stop Russell Wilson. Who in this situation is gonna get to first downs. Because he always does in this situation. He offers you too many options in the last four minutes of game. How long have you been watching this? Meaning where Russell Wilson you do not want to kick the football back to Russel Wilson. Where all he has to do is get a couple of first downs. And he kills your game. I don't know. I think if he wasn't Mike McCarthy if he didn't have the record he his winning record Green Bay's ten in the playoffs, obviously the Super Bowl he'd be at risk for being fired. Mid should be fired. He would be fired, but they're going to wait till the end of the day. He has a lot of high profile moments like this so previously in Seattle during the playoffs after Aaron through that amazing Mary Marion Arizona deciding to kick the extra point instead of going for two and Aaron Rodgers doesn't even touch the ball and over overtime Aaron his telling you after all these games. I always want to go for it on fourth down. I always liked the play gall when we're not sending the field goal kicker out there when we're not sending a kicker out there do what he wants. He's he's earned it who what he wants. I was shocked. They on it on fourth and two in that situation at that time of the game with that score. It was a it was a terrible decision. But the thing with Aaron Rodgers that we're going to do. And maybe it's already started. We're gonna say as great as Aaron Rodgers is he only one one. That's why McCarthy should be fired right there. You can't have a quarterback that. For that long was getting you ten wins the season all the time. You can't and never get him. The players they've gotten rid of everybody else. Ted Thompson is the one who got Aaron Rodgers that trouble ran off. Brett farve got rid of him. Why we protect him Carthy because because what what is he doing in terms of game planning that looks to you like, it's a lot different. Like, I see it on the Rams and the chief you can see it in their offense. I feel like and this might be my Aaron Rodgers by. I feel like when I'm watching the Packers play football that he's not getting a lot of help from the scheming. That's true. Yeah. I mean, especially right. When you watch the modern offenses right now, forget the Rams the cheese when you watch the bears right or some of these young coordinators. Tennessee titans left to talk titans football. Anytime ready at any moment to talk football. But when you watch some of these offenses, you do see guys getting seemed wide open at every level. And you don't see that. When you watch Packers games. And it's frustrating now again Aaron Rodgers his style is not necessarily conducive to that. And he does throw it away. He's very he's conservative with the football. All those things factor into it as well. But you. Can't help. But imagine what would he look like in that offense? What would you look like with Lincoln Riley? I we're gonna get the chance probably next year with with McCarthy it it's the Marvin Lewis syndrome in a way, it's just tough to fire a coach who's consistently not having losing records. Who's who's always seems to be nine and seven hundred if you're brave not if you're a real leader, not if you're willing to risk unpopularity, I agree with all that the NFL the Bill the Bengals don't care about winning Bengals are the only team in the league that don't care about winning any other team in the league that long with that coach in that quarterback. And no playoff victories would've changed. Something look at the ravens haven't gone to the playoffs since two thousand fourteen saddled with a terrible quarterback Harbaugh's held on as well. When you win the Super Bowl, you get a few. Fair or not. That's fine. The Bengals haven't done that. The Bengals don't care about winning the Bengals care about the family business making money. It's also been a long time since that Super Bowl. It has been really has been there's been in years. There's been so many opportunities we've been at this point with Mike McCarthy for several years, it feels like and Aaron does just enough to keep my McCarthy's job feel like errands his own biggest enemy in this in this regard. Because he does enough to keep those other people employed, if your Pakistan, you're actually happy about last night because that might be the straw that breaks Campbell. I think someone's going to get in there, and you guys are going to be a bit jarred at how different Aaron Rodgers looks with someone else doing this gaming. Yeah. I I don't know if they're going to hire one of those creative young. I mean AirAsia. Air, which is pretty old rice what thirty five or something. Like, do you think that team's gonna hire an offense coordinator, who's younger than him like, Sean McVeigh? I mean, he's intimidating. It's a it's a very desirable. It's probably the most desirable head coaching position forgiveness your Browns in the NFL right now. But it's intimidating. You don't wanna be the guy who screws things up with Aaron Rodgers. And it's the very very particular type of coach that can take that challenge on what can you help us out because you are somebody Greg Cote? He's the one with the impeccable pronunciation record. But you are somebody who actually gets in there and get your hands dirty with scouts and films and talking to people who who know things the scheming differences that you're seeing explain it to me because I don't know football. Well, enough to know why it is that what I'm seeing in Kansas City, and the Rams look so much different than what it is. I'm watching when I watched Green Bay play football. So the outcome which you are seeing is that guys are hoping right like you wash them, and you see, you know, Todd Gurley and Anthony bars chasing. Down the field, or whatever are you? See Cooper caught was hurt. Now running deep crosser wide open. And you just ask yourself. How does this happening with these office? Why are these guys so open? There's a lot it's complicated. But I say the simplest explanation is these offenses are fooling defenses before the snap. And some of that's been direction where you see all those guys running around before the snap that plays a big role in it. They're using the Rams run. An extremely simple offense. They run eleven almost every time often with the same personnel. But they use them in crazy ways. The us wide receivers like running backs tight ends. You know, coming out lining up live swing a wide. That's what fools defenses. That's the chess match that good offense is in the NFL are winning right now. And New Orleans is also doing it. Right. And so this is the part when I see Goff when I see Goff and breeze to people that I know are simply not as talented as Aaron Rodgers having an easier time of it. Pretty talented. I'm not saying the breezes and talented, but I'm saying breeze. Can't air Rogers healthy runs around breeds and Iraj does all the things. Breeze. Does breeze doesn't do all the things Aaron Rodgers does. And Br breeze gets rid of the ball faster than anybody in the sport. Which is why he never gets act and helped his offensive line. But I know what golf was his first season. We all saw it with Jeff Fisher. And now he looks like he can play quarterback with anybody. So we can all point to a little bit of improvement. But also that's scheming. We've been watching the same Packer offense. Do the exact same thing without any variation. Except maybe putting a number eighty eight at running back every once in a while for the last seven years since they won the Super Bowl, you're saying of it. I mean, you sound Seattle to I don't we're talking about Mike was watching. I was screaming. I was very well. I was muted. But I I was not happy with the Seahawks offensive coordinator either. There's such divide right now in the NFL. There's like ten dudes or shredding the league. Evolve. Irs and then one else it's. Really frustrating. Because those are Chris Simms has topped two quarterbacks that went at it last night number one and two, and you could argue there being habitat by their coaching sats. You're not getting as much out of them as you possibly could. They're so talented what we're watching on Thursday night. It felt like those two quarterbacks are exceptional. And they're being asked to be remedial there that what we're watching the when I'm watching when I see that game is what I feel like our to remedial offense is hey you quarterbacks figured out. Right. Exactly figure move around back there and figure it out. Aaron Rodgers also wasn't getting much help from his offensive line last night. He was sack five times golfing breeze. Both have better protection. Well, he's had good protection this year though, as he not. Yes, he has that last night. You're right defensively. But he can't move like he used to he used to avoid these things. He used to be the guy who can move around the defensive tackle this limitation with that knee is a big story that that nobody wants to talk about because it sounds like an excuse. It was it was incredible because they Adams had ten catches for one hundred sixty six yards and maybe two of the catches. He was actually open. Gyco presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. This is Belinda Collins live on the scene of a recent hailstorm here to describe the event of all, bro. I was just hanging on the roof. When this gnarly storm starts dropping baseball sized hail. The shingles got beat up a few windows broken. It was savage. Did you do anything to help, bro? I was in survival mode. Your football can't help you in a hailstorm. But the guy go insurance it can see can help you get covered for personal property damage. Call gyco to see how affordable homeowners insurance can be done lebatardshow. Dan has it. Oh my God. This is this Bomani question. Mavis staples. Go. Stugatz. You can't hope papers together without some Mavis. Staples. I mean, everyone knows that these live at our show with his two guys on ESPN radio. Greg. Cody and meantime, during the break, we're just doing a whole lot of talking about a game that no one is talking about this weekend titans and colts. Lot of people are talking about this game. Good matchup. Good. Are you? Greg is on the titans. You're on the titan strain with me, right? No. Yeah. I am. I'm sold on that defense. I like the coach I like their new coaches again, he's daring in a way and daring in a way is. Standard goes on NFL standard. So I got into the titans to annoy Dan originally, right because when there were three and three hundred I can't watch this team. But I really wanted to be tightened expert just to bring it up and bother Dan next time I came back to Miami. But then I fell in love with them on my own and ever since I came on was like, Tuesday, right and talked about them and told everyone to tighten up. I've become like the king of the titans like their fans are so thirsty. There's thirsty for appreciate it's like. You know, they tell girls you guys are probably like is looking at me so concerned they girls if you're going to date a guy in the band date the drummer because he'll appreciate you. The titans are the drummer right? Like, no, one appreciates them. But me, I am there Poseidon know who's the king? I'm there Cronos Zeus. I think Cronos is the king of the times. I should've looked this up for, but I am the rat king and their their official titans account actually followed at me tweeted at me, they've been liking my tweet. My tighten up tweets Cronos. It is really again. Tighten friends at thirsty. They nobody talks about the tiny. Nobody wants to talk about on radar. They've got a flaw God or goddess in you because you only chose them to annoy me, and you just admitted as much so he's not a real heartfelt belief in what it is. They do. It's just let's annoy, Dan. And then they've won a couple of games since then, and they did what they did to the patriots became real love. Like, I went back and watched the entire. The patriots game. And I truly fell in love with what they're doing enough. It's great it. Yeah. You say like where you put the emphasis on the it has to be again. I mean, also during the break was talking a lot. She still mad about this screen shot where Aaron Rodgers misses a receiver over to the right? And it is a funny thing when you think about it. We are all there to hyper examine what this person. There are fifty Parana around him like everybody around is looking to try and bite his neck. Oh, you missed that one guy that one time on that one play and he was wide open. And we all feel like we could have seen that if we'd been dropping back and Khalil Mack was coming open for a half. Second. That's all his head turned in one direction and the pressure is coming from that direct. I mean, you could do you could take any play basically and finding open guy pretty much the fastest biggest humans people larger than anyone you've ever met in your walking around.

The meantime show has new podcast episodes every Wednesday. You could subscribe rate review ESPN app, apple podcast, Mike, you know, we don't do previews around here. We don't preview games. We don't preview weekends. We just like gambling and having fun. But I feel like we've all been waiting around for Monday night's game. And I feel like we should preview it start previous star tailgating right now for Rams cheap the Monday night game. I thought you were talking about the best defense in the history of college football. I'm talking about the Colgate raiders getting eleven points against army. This is not hyperbole. This is the greatest defense in the history of college football. It is a travesty that the Colgate raiders are not ranked. They should absolutely be ranked initia- get honestly, frankly. Consideration for the final four. I love the toothpaste as well. Army is good this year and on top of that they run the option don't they don't they? They run the option they've cut no chance against the Colgate raiders defense and the defensive line from Colgate. And you just switch the uniforms. You'll you say it's like I can't tell who who supposed to be a witch team. All right. So if you might possibly be Mike is told you very strongly Colgate. Plus eleven Colgate on the money line. Here's a Wilson have a chance against Colgate. Plaque and tartar my God. Wow. What's? We what my judgment skewed. He's he's on team. Colgate. I've never been in the studio with you. It is remarkable which part of it to you like so much that it's real that all of the all of it. What are you amazed by here? Mostly like, the part where it takes the heat off of me for being terrible at the mechanics of doing that like you and me in the studio together against the clock. That's like the Cavs with two JR Smith. I don't know. How this end, you know, what's what's funny about this twice to God's said. The other day of Meena and others around here that we have to have the smartest dumb people in the world because this is what actually happened the other day. We were trying to get Cody on the clock. And there were two options at the end of an hour. We were trying to clip him on the clock and the choices where Meena and my father, and I didn't know who'd be more encompass should put it on the poll because I think dumbest smart people is actually more appropriate. And also the Monday night football game is okay to really. It's all right. Yeah. Who else is dumb? Smart. I actually that's what I actually meant. What I meant was that smart people who behave dumb. Someone thrown stones from glass house. Then let's go ahead and get the grim reaper out here. We've lost our chance because Mike was talking Colgate to preview Rams chiefs. I mean, it's a great as defendant college football. No one's ever talking about them twelve points in the last how many games eight games the last eight games they've given up twelve points combined. They're running the patriot league, folks. They can't be voted into the top twenty five don't be beholden to the fact that they're playing in the F C S don't be don't be a drone. How did how did Colgate do this season against their archrival crest? You could have gone with are they going to crest do a victory? They've been. Probably should've yet subtle for me. I like to hit it over the head. Let's go ahead and. Oh. You too both go sit out there. Win reaper visit out there. Go both of you get out now. Go sit in the penalty box. We will send out there to visit you thank you all of your help going to be a technical challenge. You kind of need them into pseudo. Let's go ahead and go with Chris I closed the door Phil fleet guy. Thank you incompetent people. Appreciate it. Thank you. Hey actors is if you've ever done radio before thank you. I mean, it's unbelievable. How can you guys? Explain it to me. Hold on. I want to examine this joke is really good. It was the to joke was great. It's winching chose to say it, which is while I was talking. There was no problem with the joke. It's that the two of them talk whenever they have an idea, and they don't think about anybody else. Don't two dollars fine. Let's go ahead and have Chris reach into this bucket of death. And see what it is that he excavates from here. The panthers. So the Panthers are at the lions they are minus four Panthers favorite. You'll keep that. Yeah. Okay. Here comes gear mo- gear. Mo is now going to select from the bucket of death. Any last place team or any of them on a by? So is the hack. Last year.

Mike just select from the bucket. It's why I hate this thing. I mean, congratulations on all your rules. There's something in there that doesn't mean it's a great. It's a great form of logic Tilly me with helmet billion. I put most of those secret helmets in there. And neither of us have any idea. What that is. Why are you putting so many helmets in the I'm not taking the raiders pick the raiders I wrong. Wait a minute. Mike, you share the raiders are at the cardinals shirt, not taking the raiders. Layout colts arts and titans. Boulter at home. They're they're one point five point favorite. We're going to have to bring the guys back.

Cody make sure that Greg Cody he's checking his Texas Twitter to make sure that I'm sorry. Alison, I'm sorry about that. Can you come over here? Alison, I'm sorry. The reason the reaper what I meant how fate, Dan. Well, I'll tell you. What happened? I will tell you. Why it is that I became this discombobulated. And now, we gotta get it all out there because the reaper you oh, two dollars reaper safe. Kammer keeps hitting the camera. What is it says as her draw? Oh, so you have you have the veto. So you can drug and and if you need it you save yourself. But if you don't need it, you can save somebody else drunken. Yeah. You try again. Just in case you have you hold onto that. And you grab another one from the reapers bucket. Because I just hit the the reaper in the breast. When I reached out I reached out to to push the reaper away from the camera, and I hit the reaper in the breasts, and now the replays, both crying and laughing because I did not clearly not now there's probably video evidence of me hitting the reaper in the breast classes there. So armee uncomfortable to have that happen on television. May know, what did you choose? I got Bama so she will very likely need veto. She can save somebody else. Blacking blacker.

She gets very mad during Seahawks gets. She gets very mad, and she gets very vocal. And she directs curse words at certain people. Right. They're not going to say what who use your imagination. My favorite part. I thought the offense coordinator of the Seahawks because I haven't heard it. But I can imagine it Schottenheimer with which rhymes with a lot of things. Yeah.

EHP094: Learn Why Its Important To Live Your Best Life Now!Teacher Collabs & Devices In The Classroom, Oh My!

"Tint. Welcome to that any live talk show dedicated to providing emotionally healing through sharing. So you create a happier. Life. My guest today wants to know what is holding. You back auto McKinsey encourages us to encourage one another to affect change my living loving and dreaming, boldly see the supermodel to beautiful girls, a motivational speaker that empowers us because as she says, I'll goals are important and powerful when aligns without purpose. Her mission is to motivate you to capitalize on your now by pursuing a bold life with urgency and intention because your dreams just can't wait locum auto MacKenzie to the show. Thank you. I'm so excited to be here. Now, I know the shoe your undergrad is a concentration of neuroscience. Yes. So how did we get a nurse? To motivational speaker. Oh my goodness. So I currently practice in emergency medicine as a physician assistant. That is what I do full-time. Yes. And it okay. For those of us, the anot smarts. Please tell me what did is. Oh my goodness. 'cause we think physician's assistant. Okay. We got an idea what they do pay. But when you add emergency medicine onto it. Okay. Are you primarily in the emergency room? Yes. Oh, yes. So I do work in the emergency room at Johns Hopkins and east Baltimore and I worked with a physician team. I. Operates or I practice under their guidance. I see patients I diagnosed treats Orla. So I am the extension of a physician and always work in a team. I'm a big team person. So is that connected to you. Now, telling us me included. Because my metro at the conference what like two three years ago. Now, you were telling us that our dreams cannot wait in that we should step out and begin to pursue them in the moment. Don't plan don't think just where you are start moving. So the irony is is is not like I up. Why do I keep saying operate? So on a daily basis, I'm amongst change. People are coming in with things that are happening to them like acutely that they want help fixing and. There are times that ends in life. But as a provider, you kind of you have to externalize it to an extent because you see a lot you see a lot every day. And so. To the extent that maybe feel even bulletproof if if I can say that, and I believe that it wasn't until I was on the other side of the table that it changed things for me. So I will say in twenty thirteen I was I moved back to the area. I had to be the girls headed mazing husband. We had awesome careers. We had both had master's degrees. We had an awesome house. We loved our community. We vacationed internationally everything was all some and my career amazing. So when I tell you that every day when I saw these changes, I I didn't think that it applied to me. My husband developed a coffin pain. Okay. And that turned into a late stage and stage metastatic lung cancer diagnosis and we'll see smoke. No, right. No. Because most people that are diagnosed. With lung cancer are nonsmokers and have never smoked. I mean, he broke the mold on several different friends. He was young. He was a non-smoker on the outside. You would've thought he looked like the picture of health? But I mean, there's nothing to unfortunately, justify the fact that his life was taken by lung cancer. How did you first found out that he was diagnosed with lung cancer? It was that simple. He he had a little bit of pain. It didn't go away and chest. X Ray boom. Huge mass in mass that sits near his heart. It was huge. It's like the size of his fist. Why and being someone that can look at an x Ray and understand where you standing there when the light was turned on. No, I wasn't. He got a copy of the x Ray. And because he was able to tell me about it. I wasn't even at the appoint. Nobody because it was just a call. Yeah. He's a grown man can go to appointments like I don't need to be there. And then they sent him for an X Ray. Usually that's done is outpatient. So you just go to a radiology place. You get an extra and you come home. But I I don't recall it was the same day, he go with image. Or when they told them about the image, and we had to get a copy of the image. But yeah, startling took my breath away. I was like says John Norris. And fast forward to I guess that moment when you're at home after you know, all of evens, the planning the funeral in the family has gone, and it hit you what hit you what did you think that in that moment? I mean, all of those things that I mentioned previously. That I saw as a blessing like you just get to this place in life or you're just grateful, and then I just saw the floor of my dreams just drop out. And I said, you know, where do we go from here? I just. I was I was at a complete loss, and I say to things like number one like if it weren't for my little girls. Like, I promise you I could have walked in kept walking my nature is to be alone ranger. So I could have just kept walking. But I had these two little itty bitty girls that needed me and the incurred an Ingrid me down in a way that. I just had to figure it out which leads me to why I'm here today because I am so grateful because in that space. I was given a huge piece like it pass, my understanding how much piece I had. And I can only say that that came from God. And I just had this moment where I'm just like where do I go Ness next? I wanted time. But it didn't have any time. Like I had to go back to work. I had bills to pay because all of those things that I mentioned were touched to some sort of payment like, and you told me earlier do not identify with the term of the description single mall. Yes, why is it? Ooh. I mean, a part of this was the discovery back to why here. Like. Why am I here, and I had to get to a place of who am I and to get to who? I am I had to remove all sorts of hats about what I do or. How I am related to to get to me. And then so I get to this place, and I'm able to identify who. I am. And you know, as the term goes you wanted to be judged by the content of your character. I think Remo can't junior. You're right. But. People kept just wanting to you know, how how do we define her now? And I'm like, the single mom doesn't quite do it. I get the fact that I am the single care provider for my children, but all of these labels come with some sort of connotation with them. And I just I didn't want that to be like I wanted to be known for me. And what I gave is opposed to what I did. And so I try to break them old on all levels. Not just out one. Just you know, we can go down the list as a woman as a black woman as a black women like all of those things like the moment you give me label. I'm like give me a bat. I'm gonna try to snap like not the average. How does that break into motivational speaking because you have your hands full fulltime job? Okay. And then fulltime job in medicine. Yeah. Two beautiful girls. Then I'm sure at some point you had to fight bake family who was just overwhelming because they thought oh my God. Now, we have to help her like we we have to be there. And sometimes that can feel like a like yourself accounting, like they're putting a Cup over you and trying to prevent you from moving forward with the idea that you have of life versus what they see for you. So where does motivational speaking get into that? I think it kind of goes back to, you know, trying to define who I am and getting to the place where I think we all start off early trying to design our life in our careers that mutual looks like we're really immature at that place. Like, we we don't know who we are. And we immediately start defining ourselves by the things that we do. And so when I realized who I was I needed to figure that portion out and before like when I talk about those finance part of it like, it's a big piece of it. Because I was going to write a book for my girls on finance. I was because I was just like I learned so much, and I'm like they have to know this when they turn eighteen they gotta do X Y Z. And I wanted them to know. But then they said. Mom. What happens if you'd I? And for me that just changed everything. And that's what let me on a quest to I need to learn more about how I see things. And who I am. And so my book that I am writing is about. Who we are. As people would is your story going to be when change happens because change is going to happen. Yes. It always happens. It's not gonna stop happening. And I'm not grandfathered into no change. Like, what is that look like, and I want my girls to be able to say, hey, I'm well-equipped to say, whatever happens. I can do anything I can be anything. And if I tell them that they can do that. Then I have to have to lead, by example, I have to show them. And if I'm writing this book for them I plan on being here. Yes. And because of that grace was given that piece I feel compelled to share. I'm not a sharer. I'm a giver though, I am. And if I can give this back. This is the way to do it. I have to step out of my comfort zone. I have to stand up and be like, this is my story. Everybody has a story. And it doesn't have to be as dramatic as mine doesn't. But we all do have find things that we can contribute. And I'm just starting that conversation on the individual level on the on all levels, just to the extent that opportunities open up themselves for me to share than I am compelled to share. We'll be right back to talk about exactly what she shares. So that you can find it online for more motivation. What if I told you that you could stop the negative tape from playing inside your head?

Get your free copy. At that, Anita live dot com slash ample. Our in studio with the amazing auto MacKenzie. She was sharing her story of tragedy and trial. Right now, though. You. I mean, your videos that you post for motivation on social media go through the roof. Everybody loves them. Thank you. And the comments are furious. People are impacted by what you're sharing. Do you feel that that love coming back to you when you post those videos, and you get thousands of us? It's hard. It's hard to say because I started off in this journey saying that if I can just change one person's life in just the unknown ripples involved with that then I'm satisfied, but also competitive so. All right. So this is supposed to be doing with. This is supposed to be saying. So when you put metrics involves it just gives you this place of like. Competition, and it's not really a competition. So the the places where I get the biggest nuggets or when people leave comments and they're saying how they're personally affected by it. Because while you get thousands of us, there's very few people that actually reach out to you and actually have a personal conversation. And it's those people that I really really cherished. Because like I mean, I appreciate everyone for giving me time because that's my thing time. How do you? Choose your topics. I live life, and it's amazing. How just on a weekly basis things come up and everything is just shown up at the right time in my life. I can't lie. It's just. Okay. Let's go with it. Yeah. Says simple you were talking about like what my last post was. This is the perfect example, my last two posts so a couple of weeks ago is just in this place where I had to do video, and it didn't really want to do one. I'm just like, oh my goodness. Why am I doing this like in the sea of just so many people delivering content? Why am I doing this? 'cause who is actually hearing this who's benefiting from it. And it certainly said I'm busy like there's plenty of things I could be doing with my time. And so I mean video just encourage myself to be truthful, and it said, you know. Who who am I in a sea of many like, I am me? And I I recognize my worth my gifts now. So I have to realize to the extent that I can share that. And encourage people to do the same. Then it's worth it. And when we start talking about, you know, talents and gifts like outside of like. Yeah. It was a neuroscience major. But I was also a student athlete like I played volleyball. Me your jersey. They did you know the year after my husband passed, I'm still in this dark place and trying to figure out who I am. And I'm surrounded by people that are celebrating like the things that led me to those accomplishments, and it was really an awesome thing. And then so like the day I post my video Colgate alum reaches out to me is like did you see this article? And I was just like, oh, no I didn't. And I was just like number one. I'm not really history. Like, I feel a little dated now. But for black history month, you know, there was an article about me, and you know, what I had done athletically at Colgate. So it was just like the timing of it all and it's not something I share a lot. But it's huge in my life. The people that were part of my life at that time, then continue to pour in like my team showed up in a big way. You know, decades later after I lose my husband. They were right there. And I was just like, wow. Wow. So in so being down and feeling like I'm against all odds. Like, those are some of the things that happen on the court. Like you look at the scoreboard. You know, how you're feeling you see the other team like I was at least drawing from a familiar place of feeling down in new that I could still make it. So. Do you have a go back and watch your videos to see whether or not how'd that motivational moment affects you. In real time. I look at it. But I haven't gone back into 'cause I guess this is Ben. Maybe actually a year, videos and. I know I've grown a ton. I I've grown a ton in the past several years. So my writing my speaking, my interactions me being more comfortable in my own skin being able to share without like breaking down knowing that is gonna be okay. Like you start off at a point where you're talking about. It's going to be okay. But it's not really, okay. Right. Right. And then you're just like in a place where you're like. Okay. So yeah, what does this optics that you've talked about and you pass videos? Oh my goodness. I think the biggest thing that I just recently realized was, you know, one of my tagline is, you know, I hope that we all find their urgency to live this life. According to a dream some purpose. And I've realized that that's a whole big mouthful. But like what does it mean? What does it mean? How do you apply the Calcio? And so I've mentioned that I work in medicine. See change happen. All the time when it personally affected me, it came true in a very different way. I'm a different provider because of this like those walls that I had up in caring for those people like I have no choice, but to have more compassionate in those scenarios or have a sense of like. More ability to relate and so. When I say purpose intention like purpose intention in time. You never know when those changes are going to happen. And so if you dig deep down, and you find your purpose 'cause they all believe we all have one we may have several. But like, I believe that our gifts are tied in with those. And Sophie realized that you know, we can define time. You know, sixty seconds in a minute, sixty minutes in an hour. But what's the time of our life? We we don't know like we know the average life expectancy in clearly my husband left before way before his time. So we would define his time. Yeah. That's an excellent point. We would define us his time. And so I believe that got has a plan for me. And I don't know the time I have to complete that. So every day going to be very intentional of my time efforts. And I'm going to. The most I can do each twenty four hours. That's why I do so much. Like, let's go are you following? I want to be able to spend more time with my girls. I think that we engineer our lives to this place where we're just giving away. So much of our time to the things that we do and not necessarily to the things that we wanna do. And so to the extent that I can become more financially free. So that I can, you know, spend more time with my girls. That's that's why am I want to take back my life. I don't want to spend like nobody ever says, you know, I wish I worked more at the end other life. So to the extent that I can live life with them model for them travel with them show them other people experiences, you know, and. I I'm grateful for God's grace into the extent we can share that. I will. So those are my dreams living them in, you know, pushing forward to being able to do it more YouTube, beautiful girls. They're amazing. Keep you busy. Just they what what are their individual number one activities to share with mall? I don't know if we have any individual stuff yet we pretty much hang out together as a as a team right now. I have to give your times say Yuri. She is someone who lives with me now, and she's amazing and she fits right into the family. I am so grateful to like we're in the space where we all have these support systems, and she is here, and she's a huge part of mine, and I don't think are enough. I don't think we think everybody enough, but she skewed. So we love playing games together. We love traveling together in terms of like sports activities. There's plenty of time for them. There's plenty of time. They doesn't to be volleyball interest in either one it's early earned second and fourth grade. I've signed them up for. Like little classes here and there, but I mean, that's the other thing like once again involved in these sports, we're talking about you know, I turned into a taxi is opposed to anything else. You. And I mean, the burn out is real I realized that by the time I ended my collegiate career or like I did try out for the Olympics. And I was tired alyssa's like. My body was physically tired at that point. And so, and I started pretty late in my career in terms of you know, the year round sports. I think there's plenty of time you can smash it into last time. I don't think the advantage starting right now is there we can build our life as a family and that trust. And that you know, I want to have this life for the can relate to me and come back to me and have conversations like those tweens and teens are coming up. Kids are gonna take. To the extent that I can avoid that. I would like to and maybe this is being naive right now. It'd be like this. But I want to spend time to develop those relationships because in my opinion, I think that's what's missing if they enter the troubled years without that foundation. It's hard time to develop that foundation. Right. So to the person that is currently in the spot that you were in in two thousand thirteen fourteen and where they have lost a loved one their partner, and you know, caretaker their family. What would you reach out to them and say to get them from where they are now to where you are now. I couldn't have seen here from there. I couldn't have from. And in those moments. I literally was a moment by moment scenario and. To be brutally honest like it was like. In those moments. God, you got me, right. Okay. I'll take another step. You're right. They're all right. Like it really was. And if I look back on things was able to accomplish. That wasn't just me. And so to the extent that they find a way to face was a huge part of that for me, if they take it moment by moment and put their trust in God, he will take them through. I don't know any other way. That's how I made it through. I can't lie. Well, accomplishing your goals and living your dreams. Sure. Does do good things for your emotions? It's also an excellent way to set an example for all the little people in your life.

AH OPPORTUNITY TO COMPETE ON AMERICA'S Cup tour which is in Lake Placid New York and then the only other track is in Park City Utah and then from there you go north worker I use my English degree became alternatively certified got a job at US grant high school teaching freshman English enjoyed it in New York so I flew up to lake placid did the tryout and ended up getting recruited to be the second pusher on a four person bobsled team and to have you on air cool story and I think it'll be great for people to hear calls definitely you need so you went to College Football Scholarship my principal had to lay off sixteen eighteen teachers a grant and I was one of them and so just bought a new house down the road egg for about a year and a half and then oil went bust and I noticed I didn't notice it was very apparent that my colleagues Oklahoma and ended up going to the oilfields and worked on an old rig that was built in nineteen seventy for a really small oil company based here in Oakland Yeah I saw that west up there's video on your your government page was like a sixteen year you've lived an interesting life that's like one of the main reasons it was pretty awesome our August twenty nineteen and we've made significant improvement in all three facets but they're still so much form of that diversification of the economy doing things to give people more career pathways for like my friends on the rig running for improve mental health is going to pursue that and ended up not making it but I was recruited to the United States bobsledding team for a tryout and lake anyone can play on we've got ten more on the works for the schools who are going through the pathways to greatness and okay cps the elementary and just Americans I got to learn about their cultures and bobsleds kind of a bigger deal in Europe and so it was a really fun experience and came back and so we're giving them a little bit more age appropriate places to bikers okay CPS teacher Willer so she's in the transition of going from being elementary resulted in the layoff of teachers twenty twenty you and early two thousand sixteen yeah yeah it was at Spring and you know I actually went to more okay but you also in this time period you wrote a book and start a business correct yeah did I will the book came take care for people like my brother and then restoring all the funding that they cut from education and ran on those three issues and here we go because I when I was in high school I played for Bartlesville and we did not win very many games my soft my junior year Odin had just barely enough money saved up to decide to run for office and go knock on my neighbors doors and listen to them and ran on a platform AH run their nonprofit coat energy assist foundation and we do big we do three big things in the community we build these public soccer courts for kids to play friends were having a very difficult time finding jobs paid equivalent to the oilfield she's eighty five ninety sometimes one hundred thousand a year for regular oil field Monday to the locker room and the coaches offices empty but thankfully my highlight films from my sophomore senior year we're still there so I took the liberty of I remember on the evening of our last game I guess the night my head coach our coach was fired and I show up we won three games in my senior year we won and had been twenty years since anyone from Bartlesville had gotten a division one scholarship and no one was getting recruited work to do and I've got a lot of big ideas for each so here today I've got a wife in a fifteen month old I've been around affluence in that type of culture and really fell in love with that and saw an opportunity there and that's when I chose to go to SMU schools that are now middle schools were taken out the playground equipment and putting that to other elementary schools in and we're building soccer courts with Blake Griffin he's building the basketball court son got a daughter due in October and outside of the legislature I'm the Executive Director of a nonprofit for the Oklahoma City energy professional soccer team and I guess they never said we never contacted you so when it showed up maybe out of curiosity they ended up watching it but in about a month and a half I went from contingent upon this other person in other person ended up accepting and then Smu came in and I went to Dallas and talk about a different environment and published in two thousand thirteen but I don't think there needs to be a second edition because like I said it's pretty much timeless information and then on my in from I forty four you guys build those yeah we've got those and then we did the one downtown together square by myriad gardens which and they're all public taking those films and bought a DVD slash VCR recorder and I took those vhs tapes and is to make sure that there are known to give yourself more opportunities so while in the book I use my story is football for example it could really be applied to anyone it was the kids who are in my situation who don't have the help from parents who know what it's like now it's just exploded with information resources on the Internet and coaches and then after they had been in the mail for a couple days I had I would just call the coaches and say hey the information you requested on me is in the mail and you should be getting it today bought a house down the road and then about a year and a half later governor fallon cut education twice and the truck Odeon code the English with a specialization creative writing my professors sometimes let me write chapters of the book in which they would offer to their expert editing advice teacher to a junior high teacher in house that Ben sets a little stressful but she's getting the hang of it she stopped for them for saving twelve to fifteen years now since small kid on the knee sleeves I enjoy doing Olympic weightlifting cleans and Daedalus I mean that's I should I should point out Grandpa told me that back in the day dern I guess the depression era or the time leading up to one of the ways that communities connected was they had adult League Baseball Team Canada where you compete there and then my last year on the team I ended up making the international team where I got to travel across seas for the first time and compete against other people to say that our needs took a beating who'd be understatement so when I came home I got some neoprene some really thick neoprene kind of patched up zero scholarships to three full ride scholarships the first one was to Missouri State and Louisiana Monroe and then Colorado state flew me out and said you're scholarships but One of the reasons I decided to major in English is because of that experience I told myself if fight by some way if this happens where I ended up with a scholarship I want to help other off with the bobsledding teams and then I decided to get a mass produced and calm treetrunks because Arnold had referenced how his legs were his biggest tree trunks and sponsorship with mcdavid but they're neoprene was very thin and this seemed to hold in a lot more heat and provide much more compression and so they kind of took it the city man dangerous work yeah it was dangerous and I have a story about automation about that too and anyway worked on the competing on the bobsledding team if you're in Oklahoma that's about the only way you can practice for Bob sledding is because the movements in a clean jerker very similar to pushing a bobsled and awesome sleeves and took them back and my teammates liked him so I made them just far team and then other teams started noticing them and we had right in front of your belly button and then you drop down into a front squat and then you push up and then you do a push press above your head and once you have full control all of the barbell over your head that'd be it's a complete lift and so we would train and train and when my teammates and I would go to Canada when it would be with the book to help kids who are in my situation and while it may be different sport or it may be a job interview I feel like the principles in that book are that initial push and it was where you whiffed up and get it under you that's exactly right yeah it's essentially a really fast dead lift the bar floats up I'm on DVD's and made copies and sent him to coaches all over the country and I remember I specifically I could've maybe played Olam but I wanted to play D. Line so I sent him to the delight the dead lifting is not an Olympic lift that's powerlifting but an Olympic lifts you have snatch and power clean clean and jerk and when I was for thirteen but I kind of don't do that so much anymore I don't really market it it's phased out in fact I have about four hundred pairs that I'm gonNA probably sell to across a lot different than it is now and it's hard to believe that that wasn't very long ago but they treated him pretty poorly terrible yeah like he was incarcerated I attempted in two thousand nine and because he was fourteen when he first attempted they had to go take him to the hospital and they've pumped his stomach and he had because he 'cause you're kind of like I went through all this other people that go through it was helpful too because I knew I wanted to write the book after I got a scholarship so by majoring in timeless in the fact that you can use those principles to basically put your best foot forward to market yourself and if you have the quality there's many of them were published and so they gave me that was a huge benefit for me and helping assigned published pretty soon after I graduated yeah ten years ago I think that had an influence toward the end but I remember he went and it was very much you know you do what they say on their terms had tempted and he was under the age he became property of the state and they put them in a state psych ward and back then in two thousand nine it was we especially in Oklahoma it's not is looked down on to be weak physically or mentally and so if I ever gotten an injury physically you habit and you get back on the field and that's it and kind of the same with mental problems if very common amongst young young males especially the healthcare and mental health and we just won the five hundred million opioid settlement which go to mental health treatment and helping people who are in pretty much all my time is either spent at home with constituency issues or with the nonprofit on ask you about the state of Maine he's and then once everything else you know got busy with other things that hey you know how it goes so it was a fun venture and still paying became a representative and what you've done to maybe change we I've been pushing for day one to accept Medicaid expansion that would go to lower income people to help with Jim how were they can do what they want with them but we had a fun model with that in the beginning for every pair sold we'd plant a tree and so we ended up planting quite a bit of tree taxes on it though so maybe it's time to close this out and then shut her down but yeah that was a fun one but now for the movie pumping iron and so t r e x and I would say I I sold that I've been selling those for since about two thousand twelve addicted so that will be that will play a big factor but and when my brother he died by suicide and two thousand eleven he had they'll health in Oklahoma like you said like I remember in the video I watched you were talking about how terrible it was like what was what was so bad about it before you like sleep in a cell with a roommate with the lights on door open they watch you do everything and he was there for a month and it's interesting growing up as an athlete so there really was no treatment going on it was more like we'll treat them like a prisoner well you know there there was a medicine prescribed hand trying to get that combination right which was not it was rough in itself trying to figure out what worked and what did the science has changed so much since oftentimes those guns aren't store properly or you have people with good intentions who don't know how to properly handle one they had their fatal mistakes all of this same treat trump has the name of the book is called Recruit Yourself Aren't an NC double a football scholarship okay just give them back to the community seven thousand as of yesterday we know they have fifty thousand regardless if they reached the goal of sending that bill to the vote of the people yeah and and we're just talk that once you are perceived to have been healed just don't talk about it and I remember like my brother he came back initiative to lead the petition to repeal the permit lists carry bill that will go into effect November. I if we don't have enough signatures at the time of this podcast can be prevented and I'm just want to tip my hat to the legislators my seatmate one representative Jason Lowe who took on the he was left in a alone vulnerable moment with with a place he shouldn't have been and so that's what happened to him and negative twenty three degrees below zero Fahrenheit could be out there and you breathe any just feel your lungs icing and unfortunately Oklahoma continues to have more Morse's I'd go and because we are state with a lot of guns and after going into the psych ward and I know he didn't want to talk about it because he didn't want to end up back there and my mentality was I don't WanNa talk about it because I don't want to have him restriction they did a poll eight percent of Oklahomans believe that people who carry in public should have a background check MD why do yo l l s okay so we appreciate you taking your time to come on man have you had the storm damage or you're like man that was it went on and then that was another tough thing when he went back to school is trying to integrate all the kids kind of knew what happened and he was there's stigma and he ended up having to go to a different school and then he the has created a strong conversation that I believe is empowered a lot of people we have mayor Holt who came out and signed it multiple professors most state who is it would eliminate the need for a permit it would eliminate the need for said background check to open carry and it would eventually graduated high school and went to college his first semester and made straight as and we just thought everything was fine and toward the end when the doctor was prescribing it assist bad feelings which all the science now says that's not true that helps to talk about it and so looking back we know just didn't ever talk about it and he went ended up there medications that medication I just know that it was changed up and the dosage was increased and and in different medication and a higher dosage he found an unlocked firearm and he was very manic and what were these like S. Sri is or what do on you in a holster either showing or which is called ix open if it's showing or concealed if it's on your body what and we'll see how that goes but they you know those permit lists open carry entail just for listeners who yeah so right now in Oklahoma you can keep up his remembers like the most notable Matt Taibbi Morrison and Tommy Britain and they can do anything from training you to giving you social media presence assault rifle and there are currently people in Oklahoma who do it for Youtube views they call it a second amendment audit them all the time extend the firearm range of so right now you can you can keep a pistol on you this would allow you to open carry a rifle shotgun it's August twenty eighth the thirty Oh okay. Today's August thirtieth we don't know the signature count on the initiative petition they need to fifty and not just shooting a target but how to properly store like we were just talking about how to properly clean your gun and what to do in different situations to do that you have to have a permit so if a police officer stops you and wants to see Burma have to show it and and to acquire that permit you have to have gone through training mm certified have a permanently so sin this vote to the people if you're so shirts would they want to the people and then it will be decided but origin eight hours safety hunting safety hunting safety course and that's still a thing and no one has a problem with that so what this bill would do ended ego yeah mayors from across the state up in stillwater who say there are a lot of passionate opinions on both sides of this issue they'll have they'll go to public park and looks like an assault rifle they modify their pistol to make it look scares so much so to the police officers can't distinguish exactly the summer and that's terrified and that's exactly what they want they want to elicit a he losing money hand over fist and they're doing everything they can to incite fear had to keep their members engaged in paying but once there's a tipping point that I think is happening at this moment that to and you can see how fast public opinion can life because someone was walking around with a modified looking shotgun assault rifle and you shoot the person well you are completely immune from legal itution has a lot of amendments there there are situations in which your First Amendment right to free speech isn't very courageous grassroots organizations who are coming up and now for example MOMS demand has more members than the NRA and the NRA's range for example medical marijuana and there there are things it when an idea catches hold can happen very quickly and it's very powerful his life or her life and shoots back there under protection to now here's the real kicker if a stray bullet ricochets or hits a bias a constitutional right for second amendment says a well regulated militia that implies regulation and then they can come back and say shall not be infringed L. repercussions because of standard ground has extended out outside of those outside of the home now the person you're shooting it who's trying to do a second amendment audit will fear for recently the Oklahoma legislature extended the standard ground law to which it for those listening extent the standard ground law says a public place if you're in public at the park someone's doing a second amendment audit year a concealed carry license holder and you fear for your life they've gone to the gathering place and you can bet they'll be scissor tail park and here's an interesting fact in two thousand seventeen or maybe twenty eighteen all the different things that have changed over time but this one seems to be the real hang up and it's it's funny to see not funny but it's interesting to see that if you're in your home and someone breaks and enters your home and you fear for your life you can shoot them now they just passed a law that extends out to okay so where would you like to like bridge the gap you think we should have more gun control or do you think we should focus more mental illness to prevent more things like suicide we'll make the point well you have to have a license to drive a car and then the other side of that argument as well drive a car isn't a constitutional right and then you could say well zander both are immune from any legal punishment no way that does not make any sense how can we legislate the people who voted these in our those that's the only way it happened is passed the legislature in the signed by the governor I saw it was signed by the governor number they start to fuel the fire and eventually create more `isolation and less ideas having the same conversation that has been going on for a very long time but it's so quick through a screen because this is more intimate and I feel like we can have a better conversation this way people nowadays like back in the fifties you'd have bowling leagues and other one of the problems that we have today in society is less people are doing things as groups were talking in person we're not over the Internet and we're not chatting there's just a lot more things you would have to actually physically be around others to have that community and now people can find their tribe or what what's happening I'm glad you brought that point oftentimes I feel like people with mental illness or a scapegoat for he was the shooter he was mentally ill -ality that's not what the data's saying that these people who are committing these atrocities have been radicalized on Internet groups they fueled open-mindedness and to where they become so indoctrinated in what they're saying that they think what they're doing is a good thing and I don't think that's that is not mental allowed legally example you can't go into theater and you'll fire you can't make threats you can't do stuff like that and and they're and they're just the hope it does go to vote I don't know I never knew any about that like I never knew people were doing that it's terrifying to me especially someone who has kids like this or the other you know whatever gets Iraq's off when it comes to policy or groups and they can get in a bubble and then once in the echo the newly elected president of Young Democrats of America who's right here from Oklahoma City friend of mine they and of course moms demand action like I said earlier I think that there are a lot of good guys who have guns with good intentions who will make fatal mistakes if they're not properly trained side of the argument is just well it's the Second Amendment right and we should have our guns right that's what the there's always devil's advocate honest that is just indoctrination propaganda and it's almost like unfortunate took cult behavior yeah an attack to go through and verify each each signature and if they have the required amount than it will go to the ballot in twenty twenty November of twenty twenty all created who worked for the past two weeks to get over fifty thousand signatures to to be able to contest that bill that's about to spend time figuring out if he was the perpetrator after some deliver deliberation and figuring that out and they've found in fact he was just they will make mistakes and a firefight naval make fatal mistakes when the police are trying to identify the perpetrator and mistake them it happened presents low he was he's one of the leaders the man on the news last night I saw like the thing where the man was talking about what they presented then correct each signature will have to be verified they have to be able to canvass yeah exactly and so why would look at it but it would be reasonable to say that less mass shootings happened with assault rifles when they were less I'm always keeping in mind and it does help when they reach out to me and they share their opinions and we can make more informed decisions as legislators present thirty eight thousand five hundred people and you my district was Republican before I want it and so I do have a lot of republican constituents terrifying like so you're chairman actually is the one who authored the bill before the petition for it to go to a boat yeah it's and just in the there was a person who had a licensed to carry El Paso and was running and the police had to apprehend him and is because you had a group of very engaged and loud supporters belonging to a group called it okay to me same thing is like you really need a rifle in public right or even if it's a concealed carry but citizen who's had a permit to carry and nothing wrong with that but it did take away from the real perp that the police needed to apprehend yeah that were pushing while everyone else is busy working providing supposed to spending time with their families right but that is a good commentary employer involved but the whole reason there's permanent carey was rushed through the house it was rushed through the Senate and it was a very first bill governor signed what they're interested in what they're passionate about and they'll make change gosh the other day I can tell you story after story after story I'll tell you this one real quick we put a face to a legislator elected official they will have their voice heard no doubt and then they will put them to work on a campaign find out grandfather at the Capitol and we had a meeting and we legislated policy that would ban pets prizes and the first year we had a snowstorm in so assessable yeah it should be it should be harder to get I mean like you say with the car analogy you gotTa have a licensed driver car I mean guns are way more than first year I was faced with the school girl went to the Cleveland County Fair she noticed that the Goldfish were being used as prizes but problem was the nineties when you think something like that could curve the numbers that we're looking at with mass shootings and stuff like the it'd be worth your back and look at the data and I wouldn't want to speak on that before I got them in touch with their representative lived in Bethany Representative Tammy West we met with little kaley tinder old kaely her mom or her they put us behind schedule we didn't get to hear it the second year same thing it's been it's been shot down but we know exactly who won't hear the bill in committee and on how important it is to stay engaged because the squeaky will will get the re tasty we try to tell us toward young friends all the time like guys registered to vote backpack but that can't become the norm that is insane right destin stores like Clinton had an assault rifle ban heard like the Oklahoma supreme four and a half to go back and view it all it more likely that was representative LOA representative Donnington has played a big part of Joshua Harris still who's the WHO's three years old who has spina Bifida who needs a caretaker to change his diaper his mom and he's about to outgrow the baby changing tables they can only it was hot it was murky half the fish were floating upside down she wrote a letter and so I don't think that pets should be used as prizes I got in touch with her mom what I've come to here they think it's just all corrupt which is just not the case your vote does matter in that case I would ask them to meet with me meet with four minute meet with Andrus yeah but also however it's not a concentration all right all right yeah that's the thing about you know in the legislature pitt this little girl is important her she's ten years old and it's important a lot of adults to and she's going to be able to take that as an example for the rest of her life apple the county courthouse city hall have adult changing adult size changing tables and as well as private businesses that can hold over fifteen hundred Mongo out and vote with us personally told people like I will drive you to the polling place like just even if you don't vote for the person voting for a lot of them Shane stone there are a lot of legislators who would happily meet with kids and I have these conversations and if they can like again put a face to a name especially with the scissor Tail Park opening we've talked about personally like I got some fun to go to but the way the climate is in America right now like do we really want to be on a dirty bathroom floor and we just submitted legislation way ahead of

I'm going to go all in. I'm going to say what quarantine has to teach me. That's the first stage of accountability is the willingness to agree to. What's in front of you to say? Yes instead of arguing with the circumstances the ability to say I accept. I will be with this. I will practice what this brings me so i. Seven accountability is commitment. I'm all in second step is resilience for. Hey you guys have done. Great Ed resilient staying the course. In spite of barriers the third step is ownership that when we do see notice something of ourselves or others or something that we are participating in life allowing her an ebeling that we meet it with compassion. But we own it because what you can't own you can't change in the fourth pieces continuous learning. So don't want passing judgment on how people have gone through. This is not a test to pass but you can practice the reality based accountability model through this the four factors. Are you all in? Do you find yourself resorting back to just surviving being the victim. Where it's like. Well I waiting for them to do it for me. You're on the sidelines watching critiquing judging no are it binds verb. Can you just go? You know what it is what it is and I'm going to really radically accept this reality. So commitment resilience is staying. The course not overcoming not never sleeping not expending yourself to get everybody through. Resilience is healthy at staying the course in spite of barriers and that is about commitment and dedication as I've talked about these podcast. Not Her ROIC and perseverance. Because that is not resilience. It's not sustainable resilience reveals to us the habits we've had and I always say this is why we practice because when you need it. It's already established. So resilience isn't about brute. Strength and heroics and diving catches resilience as I've said is about connection and being able to ask for help and being able to be vulnerable so it's really revealing to us your commitment your resilience your ownership really getting to know yourself and dark size. What have you been avoiding from all that business? And then the continuous learning. And I'm glad that you brought that up because that's a key topic today. People are grateful for we want to go easy on people know a lot of people think accountability. Should I really be hold people accountable at this time? And that's why I talked about. The stages of the crisis is because in the beginning if people are just worried about safety and basics helped them but after that after we've come a made things work we've connected people. We have them safe. You know and and we've helped. Those who had less reserves than some of us are less privileged like once we stabilize the situation. Great leaders use this time to stretch people and you can be empathetic and call people great months and not let people up the hook and still expectations and tough conversations with compassion. So let's talk about that. Let's take that one in start out with so in the beginning of all of this and potentially at any phase like if one of your employees you know has now a sick member of their family at any phase. The first thing they do is leaders is respond to people's basic needs basic are important in safety and so anytime that changes for your people. It's like what are you need right now and what's happening in you attentive to that but it's shared accountability. It's like okay. Here's where I can connect you and here's some ideas I have and here's how I can adjust for you to get the implies but here's a sure the count ability that's temporary accommodation. I making for you and then you contract like how many days or can you come back with a plan on how you're going to Have a more sustainable way to rectify that situation. So we aren't just accepting people circumstances as the reasons they can't succeed. We are temporarily saying I see you. I recognize you empathetic. And let's make this temporary unique basics. You're trying to do it alone. Can I connect you in? Can we have you connect with the team member? Who's in a similar situation? Who has some best practices that they've discovered but the very next stage? After getting you connected in getting you safe is I got to be really identify. What the priorities are. And what your non-negotiables are even in this time here. The basic said I need. We've got to make it work and we can't let some of our customer needs go where a patient needs in savannah is the like get stuff done. Just fix it when that's done and most people then need that called the greatness where the next stage is like radically. Simplify be intentional. Don't add things back in that. Don't have our. I don't just have temporary solutions. Start to look longer term. How you're going to make this work and the whole innovation piece and then finally how do you cure rate this so that we are better off going forward as other operas we can be? So what happens? A Lotta Times. People think empathy is mich LE exclusive or calling people to great threats and in fact they are marriage empathy. Is I see you I hear you. I'm present for you. An empathy is more about what you sometimes do rather than what you do because empathy is different than sympathy sympathy goes into and I am going to reinforce in you. The victim mind set. Because I'm going to agree with you. This is awful where the victims or something we can do and I now I don't get anything done either in. It's like you know I don't know how they expect us to be productive to collude together and agree with one another that we can't be successful because of our circumstances empathy is just. I see you and given our current reality and the expectations. Let's focus on how we could and great leaders can do this. Empathy accountability thing by continuing to manage energy away from Waikiki. Ons to how we could one of my favorite words in that is given given that we don't have that today. How can we well? We just can't will given that you have kids at home and Have additional demands on your time. How can you have response time? That's within four hours given that in so a lot of people do is. They want to cite their circumstances. As the reasons they can't succeed and our job as leaders is to ten to the person so if they go back and they go you don't understand. I'm completely overwhelmed. Then let's back up. Let's talk about a plan for you to Given that you have this level of anxiety. Then what's your plan to find relief for that like? Are you reaching out? If you've found you know someone on zoom like what are you doing your self care. There's nothing anyone brings up that they can say therefore I can't unless it's totally out of the ordinary adapt or and you guys can use that term but now is the time to start saying. This is how you develop. Resilience is in the moment. You learn to trust yourself that we can and that you have part of that and so I do a lot of like what's your plan or why don't we talk tomorrow. You come back to me with a plan on how you can make this work in if the plan is all try harder. That's not a plan. I can invest in if the plan is you know. I'll just survive if the client doesn't seem like it is going to increase the capability of the person don't invest in the plan. Just say you know why That's hope as a strategy or that's I want something you really can have agency on like what's your part in this. You know it's like why have a partner who doesn't help out and so I can't do this because of them like what's your part in this. And what have you learned about yourself communicating? What you need and I can't get bumped in your personal lives by need you to come up with a plan on how to do that. And the the piece of this is is have flexibility on the non-negotiables Support. Prioritizing is here are the non-negotiables you have to deliver. How you get that done. As long as it matches our values and behavior we would condone how you get that done. Dowse right can give you flexibility right but these are the non-negotiables and it's time a little challenging but it's going to be time where if you call the people through this you'll just have less ready people for the next piece. You're not doing yourself any favors by saving somebody. Through the best motivator. The best thing someone can do is have a direct relationship with the reality and you not interfere in or an able it. And that's why for some people sending them home. That direct relationship with the reality is so scary. If it's a child that you know is now at home. Somebody that's abusively. That's the end of the spectrum but for most of us we got to just kinda sit in the life created for a while. And if it's like chaotic we haven't had boundaries and we don't do things that are self care we just do self soothing and we are on twenty four seven and we take care. We did too much for other people. Wow all of that got reveal dislike. Go home and sit with your current situation How much we had skipped becoming technologically savvy. How much we had skipped like developing communication skills. I've even saw it revealed how lazy people have been about their own engagements. They're like well. Nobody will we really don't have any meetings and scientists haven't really touched any of my colleagues. I'm like well. That's your engagement like why haven't you reached out or creed that for yourself. Like people are like well. You know we had Cappuccino at work and my employer hasn't really sent that to my house. It like reveals to you. How over dependence you are on other folks. How much how much you allow your life to be decided by not what you WanNa do but what other people are calling in from you like. That's what some important so don't waste this time As far as calling people up to greatness in the empathy is I care about you. And how could you even better? How could you have a adopt skill sets that grow in this what I would tell you is that whenever people are in pain and they're my employees my colleagues I start with three areas skillset? They're suffering may be caused by a skill set issue. So are they turn to use an old skill set for a new reality? Lot of US got exposed. That way people are like you know. What do you mean we have to do zoom meetings? It's like I wanted. I had some people even dangerous. I just want to go back in the office. Can't we just get together for a meeting? And like you can zoom not. My team. People have coaching. So it's like. Is it a skill set? And if it's a skill set whatever's gotten revealed about your people's technical savviness about their diversity in their inclusion in their view of the world in their understanding that not all of us are having the same experience and that we are more connected than we thought and some of the else's lack of justice Oliver lack of justice. Like that should be you know skill set. The next piece is approach because skillset is something I can put you. Through a course for so check skill set. The second one's approach the third. Willingness Approach has more to do with like the boundaries that communication skills they vulnerability the asking for help the emotional expensive. Now's the way we move through life like if I do everything and then get exhausted. And Rage of the people around me as a martyr and feel put upon by by environment and. I don't have any choices. That's more the approach part of it. We have similarly highly skilled people that over function see themselves as martyrs and kind of abused the rest of us right. That's the approach part of my using less than modern approach for these times or less than evolved approach for these times try and then the third one is willingness. What's the person's willingness like? Are they arguing with reality? Are they? Just not They just aren't buying in like I choice. They're resisting because they don't want to be revealed as being unskilled they don't WanNa change familiar approach. That feels uncomfortable in scary and has a lot to do with instead of just going towards the familiar and all but even if it's dysfunctions familiar that's so important so for all of us. That's a great question to work with your teams. Like what skillset did you find yourself lacking in what approaches to life in general do you need to change and you know what's your level of willingness right now and those can all be questioned yourself reflections so feed? That doesn't work very well. Especially when people are stressed because hits the ego so instead of the feedback I just state non-negotiables instead of me commenting on how you're dealing with this. That's I just skip that and go to. Here's what we need is organization and then I invite self-reflection so I just astles questions like. Do you find yourself under skilled to be able to work in this new environment because one question. We're asking people on our accountability surveys. Where just seeing the engagement surveys at Voltron Accountability? I've changed some of those answers. We also came up with a cool resiliency survey and I'll be coming out with a whole course of resiliency online but what we found out we ask. People might productivity remains the same independent from environment and. That's a big question like some people are more productive at home. They're like Cy. I get so much done at home. What does that tell you about your boundaries at work? What does that tell you about meetings you accept rather than decline or delegate or what does that tell you right in? So it's really helping people understand for themselves. What skill set. Or what have you changed your approach. In sometimes bizarrely. An upper pretension approach is more tolerance or lowering of standards in things. I have not seen as you like. I actually got intentional unconscious with one company that they were still requiring in quarterly updates to the executive team. That was all about whether the powerpoint had no misspellings and nobody could challenge it and so people were doing all this work. They're like well. What's the value of that Dudley? Leigh religious seemed to update people on these key metrics whether they actually need and it completely took a formal update. They've been doing for fifty years and made it into you. Know casual dress on the couch talking about real issues and what they found by changing their approach that they really uncovered very quickly. What the issues were people percent data and the exact the only ones processing it and now it's like they're getting much more processed work like they're saying if you can in one sentence tell me what you think the next issue is we should be addressing so and then that willingness piece because there are a lot of folks right now that have low willingness and they're like okay. That was okay. I got through it. Let's get back to normal. That willingness piece is a big deal right now because a willing person has good habits. They have cultivated relationship with uncertainty. They've cultivated the ability to be still and to be In an environment or circumstances and be unaffected by that like this is really revealing when I look at people's like lack of willingness is really revealing some adult adulting send maturing some evolving chapters chapters of evolution that we've skipped for some folks which is everything from some grits to we can do hard soft to The ability to be still and the ability to you know when needed Read a good book or sit quietly or not know the future those actually our competencies that come from contemplation but most of us have over developed on the side of productivity and underdeveloped on the side of making sure that I the vessel by which Inspiration can come through and that productivity is like this small part of the entire spectrum in so. I want people noticing your energy as you are noticing. I've got some things that I had the ability to look at just my energy. What depletes my energy what brings me energy so what type of work to police my energy. Just the hard part to venture through or is it something bad I up continually said yes to that. I just need to take off my list at my life less like I'm not what do I hate doing would would never WANNA do? What brings me energy. What's my energy like during a day? And you know how tuned in am I like my Circadian Rhythms? And how am I Really able to manage my energy so when I low in energy could be as simple as drink more water. Get up and you know Jump in place for thirty seconds like am I doing at managing my energy curing my life choosing what I WANNA participate in the law Because a year from now for most of us that life that you'll be tempted to complain about a year from now will be the one you intentionally create a tough full agency full accountability if you just going back to the victim stance and I've gotTa do this because I you know need the cash or whatever without a plan to make that difference the life a year from now that you might complain about is GonNa be the one you had a big opportunity to choose in so I've always believed that a lot of our life we have to do with whether it is than we claim. But this is really going to be the case. I've got a couple of cool questions. I WANNA unpack for us to Ellie sent. Some that had been sent in so hooked. This isn't dated but I think it will allow us to apply in as we're bringing people back to work so this person said I'm a nursing. Administrator for a critical access has full emergency department so those not healthcare critical access. Means small rural probably. Wouldn't be open if there hadn't been some federal programming to help with like building updates and different reimbursement stuff so we're really endanger right now. Folks have losing what those of us in health healthcare call access to instant having to do two hours for a sore throat or heavy general practice person in your community we fought really hard especially in the urban and and in areas were social economically. They don't have The dollars at their disposal. We have fought in healthcare. Really hard to keep at least access available to those folks. So that's what that means as fears mounting with regard to covid nineteen. I worry that my nurses will bake hit their role when they're most needed. We've been proactive preparations. And I've been trying to reassure them every day I would like some help with my communication. Do you ever suggestion for helping me. Quelled their fears while simultaneously calling them into battle. So I apologize. If we got to the slade I've done some things on that but I think is for all of you because any of you helping people return back to work you. They're going to be going through the same anxiety that the nurses have been going through this whole time and everybody else the the environmental services folks in healthcare. They're cleaning rooms and so you have to work These situations as a group and as individuals simultaneously so as a group what a great leader does is just name the elephant in the room. My fear is that many or some of you while you're engaged people out while your hearts are big in your intentions are great. You may win. This gets going from your own anxiety or worry about family just when we need you. The most may be the time that Do decide individually the step down and not be part of the collective kind of solutions. I would just put it out there I would. I would Give people best doubts. These aren't bad people that you'll abandoned ship. It's an acknowledgment that everybody in this room has thought these thoughts and they are considering Do I stay or do I go what I'm here to tell you? Is We have about a thousand more options rights. So people are like. Don't want to be safe. I should say home or do. I want to be unsafe and come in when people are scared. And that's polarity. I was talking about the beginning of this. They get into either or and as a leader we have to introduce perspective in the big word called and in so if your concern est standing say how can we stay safe and you know work in the Ed with cases that as they come in we not only don't know what is wrong with that person but we have a responsibility to quickly separate out the Non Kovic from colgate and sometimes the person making that decision. I mean that's just pure triage staff right so I with a group. The transparent. Speak the obvious non-judgmental normalize it go. I would be a little worried about some of you. Who were just you know rushing into this with no concern about yourself because I want you concerned about yourself so find a way to come to them. Name meant neutral benefit of the doubt normalize it and just say let's to good negative brainstorming tool we teach in the no egos booklets to make the brainstorming. Everybody we're GONNA take fifteen minutes and get super negative. Your your free. We AREN'T GONNA call a BMW driving. Tell me we're going to go round where he give everybody a chance to talk. One sentence goes no story. Just one sentence. We're GONNA go around if you can't think of something we'll come back nobody critique each other's idea what's your main concern just ride it up there. What's your main concern right up there? What has it been covered yet? What do you WANNA ads? The less be careful. That people aren't going into the future aren't a matching aren't stories but just is your consume and you put it up there and I label those right. In front of people. Visually consents riot. I cross it out. Put the word risk in so. Thank you for identify ing disc- Now let's go back unless add some out. Let's take away the fear and add some on logic or some Analysis to this thinking. So let's take a look at this fear and let's look at it. How probable is a Kaz? Sometimes we fear things that may never happen high medium or low and I just looked through each one and we just ballpark. Don't get bogged down in the. If people can't agree that it's low than at least meet him or high. It doesn't matter. Put up there what you're starting to show people in front of them beyond the ego outside the eagles. The Eagles campus said. You're showing them that something's we fear. Aren't that probable. Doesn't mean we should be worried about them. We do the next step. So what would be the impact if this did happen because some things aren't probab- ball but the impact is so high that rescinding to worry about them and so now we look at impact. Some of the things we're really concerned about. Don't have that big impact right and then now that we look at what we have in our environments. Where can we bring our agency to this? Where can we bring our effects so rather than just this is our environment in their victims given? This is what we need and I really need you out work given that. What are ideas that you have that we can do as individuals or a team because otherwise it comes up with all the things for other people to do if you can't get their bring out thinking inside the box another other like these are the tools to be practicing during this time and it's like think about risk unacceptable risk right. We have risk all. The time is an acceptable risk. Is I risk? Can Be mitigated is other risks that can be avoided or transferred. In how can we mitigate that risk up tune including even though? We're not completely certain. Antibodies some people are changing the way their staffing and they're using their their people with antibodies. Whoever recovered on these frontlines to do some of triaging in so they're putting some people in you know more rest of less risk than others it's like innovation comes from the absence of drama and when people are individually whispering in the corners about their biggest fear. That's all drama so the tools bring it out beyond the ego where it's just our reality and let's have agency and work through this reality and so now given that things were able to mitigate and the things that I need to secure for us given this world now we imagine your commitment. That's the group. Staff meet with people individually and ask for their commitment. Can I count on you individually and don't pressure don't blackmail just know who's in? Who's out and but here's the science behind that just like when someone comes on the airplane you guys all remember the things. We used to fly in after September eleventh when they came in on A. I was singing exit. I'll and this fight attended. Came up and she's like ma'am. I need your full attention if the plane crashes. I need to know that you would be willing to open the door next to eight assists in the event of emergency and thinking. That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of your time you. The points crashed and I'm still alive in the fires on the inside and you're wondering if I opened up the door next to me. Yeah of course they will like who wouldn't well one. That's coming from someone. High Accountability WHO's a total helper was a lot of healthcare Like of course that was my answer. I'm like why do they have to do that so I called my brother-in-law who's really He was a pilot that time who trained pilots for southwest. What is this ridiculous new thing? He's like cya social scientists. You know this if we leave it ambiguous right we just Kelly L. everybody in the group. I hope you'll all be here. We'll make the safest possible. Do the right thing get it. Got It good. Everybody's GonNa think somebody else will tend to somebody else. Take care of it just like if you buy the exit row and emergency happens. I the flight attendant will tell me what to do or won't we know about the larger group of people. The more likely in individual will take action on heroically is rare. That's why it's on the news when it happens right so what we need to do in the first step of accountability is commitment. Is We need to meet with people individually and just say If we had an outbreak right now and We started searching in the E. D. You listeners in that department. What's your level of commitment and you know? How are you feeling in? Can I count on you and if somebody like my commitments? Low long a scale of one to ten. What do you think your commitment level is? And it's like it's like a two and then. I would say I need to know I really want you on board. We've looked at these risks. Help me understand. What's your plan to increase? Your commitment is the skill thing. Do you need to you know Enhance your skills on innovation assisting innovation is that what is it and it may be like. I have no plans to increase my commitment level. It may be. I have to immune compromise kids at home. I'm a single parent. I like this is not my time and not my assignment. It's too much for me to commit to Okay Lake. We're not here to beat people up. We're here to call them up to greatness but if there's a real reason I can't commit now with they're just like I am not doing that. No then part of it. I need to look at my part. Hell have. I kept a nurse employed. Who is that selective in the work? Here she will be doing. Oh that's right when they didn't WANNA duties hours. I let them do that when they didn't do. These types of patients. I let them do that when they complain about. People coming in with mental health challenges. I put a social worker in so that that nurse would never have to deal with someone who was struggling with some addictions or a Lotta this lack of willingness. Leka stepping up from a town ables unless they have a real situation is revealing to you as a leader. What you've allowed is like are some nurses who are just saying not mean not now and I'm like you've been a nurse for twenty years. This is of course you of course now like what is going on well. I've enable them this whole time so individually. We have to talk about what's your commitment level and like I'm like a six. What's your point to get yourself to a ton what can you do? What can I do you know? Because you want work individually. Maybe something come up in the group. Nobody wants to say. I haven't innovative ways. Should we do one a month and said well it could be that we're doing ten a day so let's have ICU. Come down let's have our regional hospital in. Let's put a Pan Plan in place. And that's how you start working. Not to enable people not to coddle them but to show that billion. What's our plan? And then you know your high committed you make sure they're highly skilled and then you start having them reach down for your next committed to say Janice feels really comfortable in this. She has a lot experience in this type of environments. I'm GonNa pair the two of you. You'RE GONNA be working together on the section. I'm going to put the two of you together and tribally. I want you to see how you can get to be more like Janice in your approach to this you know. Group transparent normalized neutral and then individual is that called a greatness and if somebody has a something to accommodate accommodate them but we don't accommodate fear because fear is false appearing real. I went to the HIV crisis. When I was just first coming out of the social worker and household been a straighter and we didn't know a lot about that disease condition. We didn't know a lot about that but there is some of us who leaned into it and said let's learn what we can protect ourselves. 'cause people need service and there were others that were fuller judgmental ism and just said you know that's a curse or whatever they believed and it was that team that we didn't put high. Kambas and low accountable together because we wanted to focus on the patient. The the injury to the patient is to be taken care of by somebody who's scared of them. That was scared to be present to them so we can't do that. Our customers are all patients but we quickly put together a Dream Team that then broke the curve so put high Komo's with high accountable make life easy. Get people to claim where they are. Somebody's kind of mid committed than have them work with high accountable to convert them possible but if somebody's low and commitment then say you know what it seems like? I need you to take a leave or I have somebody from the ICU. That's wanting to come down. Can you cover there? And they're like well no because I don't that shift and that would be nice days. I'm working harder than you are. Really accommodating what is your feel fear and potentially based on not keeping your skill set up so I'm not going to accommodate that right now I am offering you some solutions and it seems like You're not taking those up in so what I can do for you. Is You know a corner. Public- put you on leave or bowl. That will be unpaid while you've got occasion you can use the. I shouldn't have to use my vacation in the pandemic absolutely correct and one way not to lose your vacation against to take us. Icu position so know. That's your choice in avoid emotional blackmail where people are like. So you're just laying me off without pay. Actually I'm not letting you off I've offered you some really opportunity. Your choosing not to and I don't even know that will be without pay because it seems like unemployment's tested right there on. That might be an option for you. Well if I climb on appointment I had to quit. Yes guy what we tend to do. Is We accommodate? Fear which leaves people believing they're the victims and that you need to work harder at their success than they are and not being insensitive here right if something as the reasonable accommodation that might team knows. I am the first to go. Let me send you my own personal like money to do that. I'm talking about the people who are conditional on a good day in their work. And you've allowed that conditionality. What I love for a lot of us is this is exposing one year bad leadership. But what you've allowed okay. You guys notice your anxiety as now. Another changes coming for many. We're talking about going back out again. Really don't lose what you've gained here so many times. We get a glimpse over the holidays. Which is why we southern New Year's resolution right regardless of your own on a spiritual perspectives or religions that you may practice yielders lot of holidays that happened November December time period. We get time off. We set these big intentions and then we just watched them get blown away by business and other people building your agendas in us not Setting boundaries not being brave us not being courageous in so as you notice your anxiety. Notice that anxieties their piper reason that you want to not give up some of the things you released or gains and have the courage to get conscious. Write down what you've learned. That asked you what this is revealed to you. What you've become grateful for like. Take that and really get conscious and intentional. To the point it can be something really little even though it felt good for instance to get my nails manicured on Every week basis. I really resented the couple of hours. I would be in there and it's like the little things like I don't want to go back to you. Know for some of you. Who Got Gray? I was pre gray if you made it this far. I'm telling you what headband. If you've thought about it good the rest of the way and let your natural self come through. It's like notice what It can be small like that large from me is like I've noticed. What a homebody. I am and how I thought to be intimate with all of you really be available and therefore you. I needed to be out in front of you. I'll give you an and Lebanon you guys up and what I realized is spend about twelve hours to get to euchre like an hour. Where if we can make this intimate and get some Group. Coaching going again. They're smaller are venues. And that I can get like up close and personal but then those twelve hours are myself care which leads to more inspiration in innovation which leads to be more prolific on the courses. I can take which leads to like. I don't have to wait for lung. Ought to bring me in could access it directly. You can use your own. You know team budget to say we're going to do this for our staff like it's really for me. I'm really looking at if you WANNA ask me. Do you love travel. I'm like absolutely I love travel but I'm so good at loving what is that. I'm like how am I love it because I do it site. Choose to love it and now I'm kind of like I love being at home and I love being online. I love this whole thing.

Who's e you're so big now who's e you're a regular size. What I saw. I thought it was a medium whose Evert I thought he was a Cousy. That one who wrote this theme songs name is Michael he's been listening watching our stuff since the college humor days. He wrote us a little who's Evert own wonders the way, it goes beat hope we like it. We did like it. And if we liked it a lot we can shout out his Spotify or apple music. He goes by the artist's name boo Koo Hannah and the song's called something to you. Okay. It only has five hundred fifty listen so far and was hoping to get over a thousand. So I get rid of that depressing under a thousand thing on Spotify. Yeah. Let's double that. Let's double his listens. So he gets that. Like, the k next to the name is that what it I've never heard. I've never seen like songs on Spotify. That have that little under a thousand is it like the opposite of a badge. I don't know. I'm thinking of sound quote. I don't know what it looks like on Spotify. Yeah. Anyway, that's what it is. It's called. It's buco Hannah. And the song's called something to you. Right. So there we have it, right? I guess he goes by the name MJ, collegiate or Michael. So thanks Michael Colgate Colgate. Although Colgate Jit was way on he is collegiate though. Yeah, he is collegiate, but that's unrelated to his name. This is the first podcast recording post Miley successor Jorie. Are you wearing you're not wearing glasses right now. Today's the first day I'm trying to wear non prescription glasses. Oh, wow. Describe them to me, get them. I got him from where you're Parker actually shot up to one of our sponsors, no shit. It was actually a funny story. My I went glasses shopping with my parents, and my mom told the lady working at worry Parker that I do Worby Parker ads on my podcast. And then I was kind of embarrassed because that lady had not heard of our podcast, but then somebody else at worry parkers like, wait. Are you a mere? And I said yes, and my mom was like see every. Knows his podcast that lady used her friends and family discount on me. Well, so your mom embarrassing. You saved you cash yet. And what happened there is that my mom clock that and was like, okay. It doesn't matter. If I am barris anyone anymore. It ended up working. And so for the next however long now, I have carte blanche. Green light access to to save. She learned no lesson. In fact, you learned a lesson. Your mum will always Barras you. And now now she's going to double down. That's right time. You guys go to like dinner. I think we might be able to get a friends and family here. Long to cast yelling at a chef in a kitchen. Hey, everyone, my jackass son as a fucking podcast. What do you mean? You don't listen a bucket? Just holding a bus driver steering wheel until pays attention to me. Amir tell the fuck and podcast is called. Jesus christ. It only costs a dollar ten. What do we need a discount on that? Mommy eba. No. I no longer want to ride the public transportation with you. Anyway, as it stands I bought three glasses at Worby Parker gonna try them out. But I will say that today's the first day where my eyes are feeling almost like I actually have glasses baked into them. It's been a slower recovery process than you. Let on oh interesting. Well, maybe you just didn't have as strong as that. Well, what it is is like the worst vision is the more. They corrected the longer it takes to heal. So yours was like a very subtle small prescription change or anything. My really was like the next day. I was fine. Right. Did you have dryness? Residual dryness in the morning. No. There really was like it was I guess it felt like maybe a tiny tiny bit like blurry or like a light leak sort of happening. But it felt there was no dryness and halos or nasal burning a lot of nasal burning. Did you have where your sinus burnt where it was like you wake up you have choking? You'll rose Asia. Yes. So I broke out at some sort of ocular hive where the RAB sheeting people. So my pupil had a little leak, and it sort of leaked out onto my eyelids. So it like a black little a dark black stain trickling down almost like Garo running like, you're crying soy. You're crying soy. I was beefing soy. And then the way it worked is that the tears would flow up. I don't know if it was like an anti gravity post, Lasix, whatever the fuck, but the black tar would leak up. It was almost like a horror film every night because you had vertigo you were upside down. Yes. So I sleep upside down and inside out. I had vertigo right? That's correct died that ocular rose ation. I had that pupular airy leakage. And so for the last let's see I got the got the I got the license on April. First the seventeen cities the first day where I can smell hear or talk. That's awesome. I'm really and you're wearing the you're wearing the glasses. And. Yeah, war bees. Yeah. They're called the loose. The lucie. Because that's that's how your is in your head. I saw on Instagram you lost one for a moment. I lost. I lost one popping out. I lost one ball entirely, and then the other one feels small and sort of like willing around. It's like it's like a gun ball in a single Gumbel Gumbel machine. Almost you have one putty. I don't use the the lost one. And they they made us claymation. I because you didn't want the glass one you couldn't afford the glass. I e. Yeah. And he sort of he took the putty out, and he like rolled it on the Sunday funnies, and then he put it back in. So like where one I is there's nothing and then the other one looks like a spherical like a Dilbert comic. That's really funny. Yeah. It sounds like you like are hot. Now. I forgot how to talk at forgotten how to talk. So I'm relearning. Rush. I had a voicemail from you. And you were you were screaming I thought it was Hebrew. But maybe it was just I think it was Latin 'cause I was sort of the way the Lazic worked is that brought me to a point where I was de aging. So like I like I was living in like three hundred CE for like a week and a half. But it felt like it turn it in your follow up. Was it was the the gave you like the the little I exam, and then also the doctor did an exercise them. Yeah. So he did he pulled he pulled the demons from your from your brain. Yeah. He was able to like shove a crucifix close to my brain that like a lot of the demons came out. But some of them were just so frightened by it that they they've now like recessed even deeper into my corneal like ridge because I saw I saw AVI tells Instagram story in the middle of the night, you were crawling on the ceiling turned and you history, but your eyes are just two black holes. Yes. Well, and you saw the veins on my face, right? Yeah. I mean, I couldn't even see your face. It was mostly veins and ice sockets. And again, you were on the ceiling. You hit eaten your dog? Yeah. Luke, I consumed them because the Satan in my head that had controlled me post Lazic told me to do. So and felt as though his word was God. And that I was doing his bit right? But now it's nice because you don't have to you don't have to put glasses on in the morning. You can kind of just go today. I woke up, and I was like, oh my God. Like, this is the first time we're like I can read like the clock in my room, and I don't have to squint or anything. So that like felt really nice. And I was able to like, oh, yeah. I was able to like by non nonprescription sunglasses, which is like a cool little neat thing as well. That's very nice. So like, even though my recovery was a little slow. I'm I'm happy that I have done it. And I'm excited to get to this point. Because a lot of people say takes, you know, two four six sometimes three months to recover fully from lake. Wow. Yeah. Jeez. That's crazy. So you didn't. Have haloes or anything? I. Drive. It was like a little halo effect. No my side effects. Didn't sound like there is severe is years with the the the demon possession the dog eating. I did have I did have some kind of light halo wing during the day and some light sensitivity. But it only lasted for a day or two feared the halos. Because they reminded me of the angels that were coming to get me. I felt like for whatever reason spawn of Satan, and some sort of bizarre way after the Lazic and that those represented another angel trying grave my life. You are the spawn of Satan. We're not recording podcasts. Abou-? Dog if you play that part backwards. That's what it says. But it look forward to keeping everyone updated abreast, and yeah, no, I don't know how I'm going to treat glasses yet. But we'll find out together. But what is this after all, this is an advice show? It's if I were you the only frickin advice podcast hosted by two men with perfect vision. Neither of them the devil. Amir. I'm Jake, and we got some good cues today. Your brother's going through helping us out trying to find the greatest questions we have Mike is on the case has he has he let you know that this is a fun job for him. This an annoying job see into it as he fast. See I think he's good. He's I like, I haven't been paying attention. But I looked at are like good questions to have. And he's has there's three hundred in their damn damn days. Looking. He's doing it. Yeah. But I look. And they're all spam. Right. Well, he's he's sort of just he pulling the wool over our eyes. He's just invoicing us hours and hours and hours. He thinks this is a good question. Pure one ten percent off Father's Day sale from let's talk about it sixty nine. That's not a good. That's the name for peer one guy. Pierre a receipt from the goat app. He bought jeez. Using our credit card. He put good questions kind of like as a fuck you. I talked to you. Yeah. Okay. He has bent over a fucking table hand over fist stealing cash from us. And he's leaving just got a I just got a on my phone from from our Bank. Did you buy two? If I took it or tickets to two that must be mica. So I think I don't know if I bought them, but I. Okay. I'm not trying to I don't want to cover for him to covering firm. Your stand. One of the three either meet you were mica take. I'm sure it's for a good reason away. I'm sure it's a good reason. Good reasons that he wants to -cation. Here's another probably. Here's a good question Email, I'll see into Lou, motherfuckers. So he's he's taught in. Yes. Got a I got one flight information put it into good questions doing this. Okay. So he did buy three tickets one for me you and him. But he's the only one on the plane right now, I guess the flights taking wanted us to pay for his flight. But we couldn't make it because we didn't know about until it was too late. So yeah, that's why it's a write off. It's not good. I'm happy for him. I know you are. And I'm sad for us. Oh, here's an actual question. He found. All right. This is from an Israeli, man. So it seems so we'll call him. I don't know what's an Israeli name e Don E, D, O N, John rights. I'm a twenty five year old, man. And I have a son who is four whose mother is. And I who's mother I was engaged to up until recently, we signed up our boy for 'em may classes Haagen a- an Israeli Self Defense Forces training, six months ago as a way to build his confidence. Meet other kids, stay active, and he's absolutely killing it making new friends left. And right learning to kick ass along the way, I'm never felt more than when I'm watching him fucking throw down. But that's not where problem is his mother. My then fiance sucked his sense as black belt. Dick after practice. I didn't attend about a week ago. Then. Told me about it over ice cream that night after we put our son to bed. So the fiance told him about it. I can't tell if. Yes, I think, but I don't know if it's like they were broken up, and they and this happened in there, like friends, I think that's more. The vibe got obviously, I was blindsided, and I lost it packed my shit and left that night only to be forced to come to face to face with this literal mother fucker three days later at practice. I approached him after the class while my son was playing with some of the other kids, and I told him I knew and I asked him what the fuck dude, he answered with a smile, and what are you gonna do about it? I didn't say anything quickly left with my son. Seriously. What the fuck am I gonna do about it? My take my son away from the thing that he loves it, nor it and have to watch this guy. Teach my different kicks while knowing also kicked a load into my ex's throat. Oh my God. Or do. I try to go toe-to-toe with a guy who's a black belt. Israeli armed force trainer. Mother fucker fighting machine. My son has another class this week, then I'm taking him to and I'm panicking. I don't know what to do. And Amir's a chipmunk thinks whatever. So I guess he's not Isreaeli. But this this M, a Haagen teacher is that guy is definitely has thick eyebrows. A bald head and his stacked yet he's hairy jacked for sure he's Harry everywhere except for the top of his could fuck in down. There's nothing like a guy who's stronger than you, teaching your son. How to kick your ass and Nutting into your wife's. His words not ours. Right. God this is a real emasculating situation. Right. That's like my biggest fear is like standing up for myself and someone saying what are you going to do about it? Yeah. If the other guys drawn already did did what I was going to do about it. Good confront you gonna have a war of words. I thought you'd like fear that I was strong too. Yeah. I felt like you might instantly back down. What if it's gonna come to blows? I'm I'm frightened of that outcome. Fuck it. Let's do it the old fashioned way who has has more Twitter followers about a battle of wits. Quick give me a topic. And I'll wax philosophical, right? A limerick. I think I can make fun of your occupation. Because while you strong, you can't be making much more money than I there. Once was a man who fucked my wife, he tried to ruin my life. Take down. Oh, Danny look away daddy's hurt. Yeah. I think that the already the X when this started is is my theory. It would it would seem that if they were this if it's like straight up the guy hooked up with your fiancee. I just don't that. Just doesn't seem like what's happening. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It seems like they had broken up. Now, they still hang out for the sake of the sun. And I guess the wife was kind of trolling him saying, by the way, I blew the sense. Blowing the sense as really if this guy did anything relationship. That's a really really good way to get back at him. My God isn't sense a feel like that's specifically for like martial art Asian martial arts. I don't know if like an Israeli self defense guys called the sense. What are they called? I don't know. I just always assumed sense. Say was like karate jujitsu, right? I don't know what the sense would be an Israeli. That's your native tongue though. Yeah. Everybody else just stole the belt system. They stole the geeze blacks. Yeah. They took everything. And then they just called it. What is it called hug know, not gotta asshole? Pieces shit Krav Maga. Guys type of Israel self-defense. This one is called Haagen, which is very close to hug Atta which is very slow. It is close to pass over. What are you doing for Passover forgot that I got to Passovers Easter this weekend? Wow. Joy of being in interfaith marriage. So you got you got the Sator Friday. You got the Seder Saturday, Friday and Saturday, cedar. You got the Easter Sunday through Sunday on you put a little Easter egg on the Seder plate. How's that for interfaith? That's nice is chocolate. Kosher for Passover. It is. Yeah. Okay. I can have chocolate mozza. Yeah. So works seeing it'll be a candy eggs. And then you got the bitter herbs. You got the basket full of candy. And then you have parsley Easter is the strangest Christian holiday just in terms of like the traditions. I it definitely makes sense. Like what it is what they're celebrating Jesus. But like, yeah. Like why on earth Easter bunny and chocolate eggs? You got to appeal. The kids. I think truly makes. No, I think it's like kids are like we don't want to learn about Jesus like, well, I will say that there's a bunny that gives you a chocolate. Yeah. Christmas is Jesus birthday use OC birthday with presence? And so like that one just it tracks. I know there's a fat guy from the North Pole with reindeer, and that's a little out there. But like it's still makes sense to you have no notes notes Santa lives in the North Pole. He has a bunch of elves working for him, and he and his wife make a list of Nadia. Nice people. Green light Christmas. That's easy. Ship it easy. Dun, Dun giant bunny dumping eggs were celebrating the day that Jesus came back from the dead now. It's harder harder. I can't quite wrap by cock around that one. Jeez this. I'm sorry. Your honor? I got a good one. I got a good way for him to get revenge. Oh, please. You gotta act like you don't give shit. Okay. And that's it. So the like, I blew the sense. And then you you sort of laugh you like act like really the fucking sense. Nice Sheila real fucking glassy. God holy shit. What next? Are you gonna eat out our fricken librarian? Now. You're you're fine. Whatever I don't care. Yeah. I wanna get another Sunday Sheila. Yeah. Yeah. This one maybe I'll have it with nuts. Oh. The problem is this guy already got upset packed up and left. So it's hard for him to pull back around be like psych in confronted the teacher. I think he's got to go to the other the only way he can come at this guy is to ruin his business. Okay. So he's not going to be able to take them out at the knees literally, but figuratively you go around to all the other children or the the children's parents children. That guy blew my wife. Right. I'm. Aller Cindy, cut her come here a little tiny little munchkins. Let me tell you. What your sense they did he's actually not all that wise. Belt, actually, hides the cocky, shoved down my fiancee's throat. Oh, my good Lord. No. You go to the other parents. And you say, I don't know what to tell you guys. But this guy. He had an affair with my fiance. He's and then he bullied me. So I think we should go to another hug on a studio. There's just twelve miles down the road. And I think there's a MUI Tyke clinic across the street, which I've been reading lots of good shit about. Also, I think I'm going to give this guy at two star yelp review. Hell out of it. But what you do my why Lou them? You know, Sheila. We were all at ice cream the other evening. Yeah. Did you notice things got tense between us I left my milkshake on the counter and stormed out. That's not like me. You guys know that? I'm usually cool as a cucumber the other thing you can do is enroll yourself at a number like ju jitsu or boxing studio in your town. And then next time he says, what are you going to do you just drop him because he doesn't know that you've been training. Yeah. That's like the sitcom answer you take your old self defense. And you challenge him to a fight. All right. Not win. But at least like own it like, no, holding your own a little bit hill respect you. Yeah. Is it more respectable to fight and lose or do not fight? It all to fight and loses. Morris respectable. That's like to to not fight at all. I think to walk away entirely is less respectable. But like to walk away and form a new plan. That's that's respect. Like, you know, you can't win. When a black belt is like, what are you going to do about it? So you have to kind of go off and be like, what am I gonna do about it? You can't just but you can't just do nothing. This is funny. Good luck. Dude. There's also the notion that if they are broken up, it's fine. So think about that too. I guess well. Yeah, that's probably more than likely that is kind of how he described it. So get over it. All right. Well, this guy did act like a dick or anyway, take a break. Let's take a break. We'll think some sponsors. We'll be back on the other side after this. Thank you to to. She for sponsoring this episode of our show. This is an exciting one. We had a Toshi in the office. And now we get to rant and rave about it officially that's right? We we were supporters of tissue before they ever gave us cash to talk. So we know and now you will that wiping your but with dry toilet paper does not remove all the shit. No, no does not. It's just smearing it around to to a nice thinness that you sort of can ignore. I mean, if you poop on any other part of your body, would you just wipe with dry paper. No use water, thankfully, there's a sleek day attachment that close onto your existing toilet and sprays your but with completely clean fresh water. It's called pushy. And it's the best thing you can do for your. Oh. And it feels so good. We have it. We use it before they asked. That's right Toshi saves you money on paper. Ever won't clog your toilet and sprays your ass with the same water that you brush your teeth with. It's not toilet water. Okay. Connects to your water supply. So it's basically fresh sink water. Pipes are worse than toilet paper. They cause anal fissures. And you don't want your anus fissuring. Do you? I don't think. So I don't want it to Toshi is only sixty nine dollars. Nice. So you can go to Hello Toshi dot com to get ten percent off your order with promo code. If I were you cool. Again, we use it in the office. We love it at home. So get your own at Hello, Toshi dot com. You get ten percents off your order with promo code. If I were you give yourself a gift or maybe a loved one time.

And we're back Jake. Do you have any? Oh, it's. Oh, yeah. Baby will sort of. I am I really really only sort of. But I've been very very into the show queer eye lately. I recommend it. It's so good. It's so good. Everybody's already. I'm like the last person to discover it. But you haven't watched it. I saw one episode, and it was very sweet it was a southern man who was large who got a nice little makeover to go after his old sweetheart who wasn't quite interested at the beginning of the she at the end at the end she's wanted to give him a date. That's really nice. That's really nice. I've been watching season three and every single night. I am crying. It's so touching. And I love the show. It's great. And are you crying because these people are in desperate need of a makeover. Are you crying because you realizing that you need to groom yourself in a different way. And you just haven't even thought about moisturizing, and that's Pacific mostly crying because I'm. Thirty three. And I only learned what a French tuck is. You pull that definitely gonna start doing a French talk. I'm going to start doing a French talk with a French tuck does that mean you have to wear like a jacket or blazer that covers the back of it that hangs down low? No, I think that you can like remove the shirt and have like a French tuck t shirt, but I don't know. I'd have to ask tan, maybe all right into Dan. Quick question high. Yeah. No high town new fan, I'm fairly stylish. I just I'm curious about this whole tucking your button up into the front of your gene situation willing to hear Koroma's answer as well. You think you're gonna upgrade from a t shirt jeans hoodie style clothes since I'd been since I moved to New York. I did I spent the winter trying to be a little more like style conscious in LA just wear the same thing everyday. Whether it's always good. So you don't really I never really thought about what I was gonna cool jacket. Yes. So here I I definitely have been thinking about. Wearing different jackets and shoes. But like as weather's been getting warmer and nicer I've been kind of reverting back to just t shirt jeans. Most of the time, I I don't usually wear hoodies usually wear like a collared shirt, that's nice. But I don't know if that's like fashionable I- fashionable now is like that kind of like St. work where big baggy pants that are like cuffed. I don't know if I can do that. That's not me yet. Yeah. I don't know would you ever wear the baggy pants, the baggy crop pants. I mean, I assume I'll do everything that society of actually gets to. I don't think I'd wear tight pants. I got tight now. It's going looser. It's going box cut. It's going straight leg size sumo do that. Eventually, it's really. Yeah. Crop pants cropped loose pants is like in. I don't know if I can't I can't imagine doing it isn't I guess I will remember thinking that like all the way buttoning, my shirt all the way was. Bridge too far. And now you can't stop. Well. I don't do it anymore. But like, yeah. That seems like the least defensive fashion thing to me now. Yeah. And then what kind of our our people still wearing really loose t shirts with those even though their pants or baggy or the t shirts. Now getting tighter. I guess it seems like the t shirts are getting normal. Jackets are big. Yeah. I've noticed a lot of like really like especially in women's clothes like is this a jacket or like twenty yards of fuckin- fabric that you sort of shawl over yourself. It's like games over shaky. Yeah. Yeah. It's a lot of fabric dangling down to the floor. The looser the cooler Japanese street wear has me wearing a sarong and a bathrobe. And a little bit of sleet, though, with a little bit of sleep. It's always snowing around you, wet sleep Mitch. All right. We should also mention that our show in Chicago is getting close to selling out yet. Another bit of unsolicited advice is to grab tickets to our show. Twin invasion is sold out Doboy sold out high and mighty sold out. These shows are going fast pods also that too because to selling out I think we might sell out this week. So go to head gum dot com slash live or Jacob dot com. To get tickets to all the shows were coming to Chicago June fourteenth fifteenth and sixteenth. It's going to be fun. Yeah. Great weekend. I cannot wait was going to be awesome. All right. We got another question or two to get to this one is from un-american man who had the word cross fit in his Email. So on it, we call this guy. God blanco. I remember taking cross fit years ago in Blanco was the most Jackson structure. Oh, cool plunk. Oh, isn't that's from like streetfight? Yeah. No. That's blunk. Oh, okay. Was Blanco and Blanco rights long story short. I've been with my girlfriend for almost a year. Now, we've taken several trips together gone to Vegas a few times. But somehow, she's always invaded the idea hearing me hearing or knowing about her shitting, obviously, I'm not one of those guys that thinks girls don't shit. I'm not a fucking idiot. But let me continue one day recently. She came over to my place for a chill evening in when she came over. She said she had to head to the bathroom, but that I can leave the TV on. So I left the TV on and a few minutes later. I realized that she was definitely going number two, but pun intended. She left the bathroom didn't bother to make sure everything went down and stuck all over the inside of the toilet. She probably had a bad burrito or something. I don't know. So here's my dilemma, I went into a few minutes later. I saw shit all over and I was like Duff we are considering moving into to my place, I've been to her place, and it's a shit hole. So we're not going there. But I don't want my place, dad shit stained toilets like hers. I don't know. She can stand it at her place. Do I bring this up to her? How do I ask her nicely to clean up her literal shit after she takes a dump? I ended up using my toilet cleaner right on the spot where I went to P just because I'm a clean freak in whatnot. Longtime fan helped me y'all save my week every week. I listen to your podcast on Monday morning commute. And it makes it not suck as much. So thanks for that. Yeah. Wow. Do I bring up the fact that she has to clean up after her shit. I obviously know like, of course, you don't do that. Right. But she's probably very very sensitive to this whole shitting issue or she's like, you can leave the TV on. I'm. Just going to go to the bathroom. And then you go in thirty seconds later. They're shit on the ball their shit all over the bowl rice, Sheila my God. Now, I know why you wanted to leave the TV on. I mean. I think it's I mean, it's not it's definitely not worth bringing up days later, like the you can't you can't let something stew. And then be like, I'm gonna finally say something, it's it's I've reached a breaking point because then you seem insane. You've been thinking about like a tiny little shits smear for for like a week. You gotta you do have to call it out right from the bathroom as it happens. And if you missed that window, then then it becomes weird. And it's your fault. I don't let the poo still you can't do what the poo don't do follow up. If you guys actually moving together. I don't think that this problem like prevents that from happening, obviously. Yeah. If you move into gather, and she's constantly leaving the bowl smeared. Then as a roommate you can be like, hey, why? If your shit, but you don't have to say it for the one time that she she at your place 'cause also just doing it. Once doesn't mean that that's a habit you've been with her for a long time taking trips and this is the first time it happened. I feel like she's probably shit around you before. Yeah. Or you could do it in like a cute way. So it's not like a rule. You can just be like I smell. You left a little skit bark in the bowl. I mean. Yeah. That's definitely one way that that's really cute that'll p. I don't. Who's my little stinky, Queen who's my little stink Queen? You forgot to clean. You forgot to clean the bull shitting on. Shitting on the kitchen table. And this is what happens to little friends. Now, I made a mis- to here. Poops shit. On the full. Shit it again with your. No, you do have to clean the bowl, obviously. Right going forward. That's why we have that giant q tip situation Sheila. Yeah. I I would think that I would be afraid to bring it up days. After like, you mentioned she's bright very sensitive scared. Shamed. This is you know, I'm sure she wants to be as clean as possible. She didn't do it on porpoise. Nice. She didn't see the skid marks. And was like whatever the fuck. Do you ever use? Do you ever have to use that the what's that thing called the toilet bowl cleaner? Oh, like the the toilet bowl brush, yet the brush. Yeah, I used I mean are using it as like a biweekly cleaning or using it to like actually like get off some of the the the bowl duties, I guess, I guess both. But probably more. So the by weekly cleaning. It's definitely it's view and far between that I have to use it to clean off shit. I feel like I can usually do that with Pete. Oh, yeah. You just sort of treated as a little carnival game using your pita chip off the thing. That's right. And then after the after use the brush where you where you cleaning that Zet like in the sink in the shower doing that in the bath. I don't I'm done answering these questions. Yeah. You a lot of people just flush the toilet. They clean it with the fresh toilet bowl water. You use the brush, and then they flush the toilet. And then it's like all right now. Let me clean the brush with a clean toilet bowl water. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Do that. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You ever get the the toilet. With like, the what is that blue thing? Like the blue little syrup that sort of it gets washed into the bowl every time you flush it the blue ever remember those I feel like those used to be a pretty popular thing. If feels like you're like bombing it stand up or do you? Remember the? What else what else the box, and you guys you ever you ever have a roomba. Remember, those the they they go around the clean the floor. Blue serum those first came out. Flipping through notebook else. What else are this just a suicide note hold on all right here ago? It's got two thousand flushes. Everything. Okay. Yeah. No. I'm fine. Good. I know heckling. Luckily landed on stage. Why did I come here? I I haven't seen the Blue Bulls that much anymore. I wonder if those were considered like a bad for the environment or something. Oh, I could definitely imagine. I could definitely imagine. That was that like something that you like the toilet water would refill blue. Yeah. It was. It was like that's what it was. It was you when you flush the toilet water come out clear, and then there would be something in the bowl. That would turn it blue blue that was getting clean seems like it's really bad. But I don't know why. Because the oceans already blue. I mean, how bad could it be? And it was a really nice blue those really. It looked like it looked like Bermuda beach. I mean, I wanted to I literally would my toes in it. And pretend I was like a white sand beach. Oh, I would splash my face with it. Just be like, oh man to be to be in the Caribbean again to me blue. The pirates life for me. I feel like a good gag gift would be it would be a Brown one of those. It'd be a good like gag gift. So like every time you clean, your your Fleischer toilet, and it's cleaned the Brown instead of the blue plus bleed. So it's still clean, but it looks Brown. Yeah. Like a prank. That'd be really funny. Prank to plan. Your roommate like every time they flush the toilet. It would just fill up really really nasty Brown. Yeah. Or like, golden. So it looks like chicken broth in there. So you flush the toilet. It's chicken brought the plop in a little a little Mott's of all in there. So it looks like every time I shit. It was it was a mozzarell- you cut up some carrots, celery, some onion would feel. I really would love to drink out of a toilet bowl. Like. Yeah. Like egg noodles with like it was like a hot toilet bowl with Motsamal suit. I feel like if we produce something again, you would like us to have like a perfectly clean toilet bowl with really clean water, and you could drink out of it like as as a set piece. Just a you would have that feeling is that. Accurate. Would you like to do that? What the fuck are you accusing me of right now. Something again, do I want to toil? There could think out of is that we always talked for ya. Always locked preoccupied with it. Yeah. I would like to drink out of toilet next time. We shoot something is that considered? Like, why is this? Gotcha journalism. I'm admitting to it. I want to drink out of a fucking toilet. We'll a prayer a prop toilet. Oh. Yeah. What is that like a fake toilet? Oh, no. You're where are you right now? I'm on a tub the next to a bowl, and you're not eating or drinking anything. Happing having a sip. And I don't think it will LaCroix or like, you're. Oh, you're you're drinking from the toilet bowl. Yes. Like LaCroix out of the toilet bowl. I'm having soda out of the out of the ball. Poured a grow at least is it a good flavor. Yes. It's a fine flavor. It's fucking grapefruit pom-poms flavored that's the best one. Yes. All right. And I'm bobbing. I'm bobbing for a little nectarines at the bottom of why are we like turning this into like this huge fuck in witch hunt. This witch hoax. You're saying that you're drinking a toilet. You said you're bobbing for nectarines fucking twitch hoax. It really is a witch hoax. So which hoax. Folks or a hoax a witch Hoke? Yes. Which which which hoax are we talking about which nice don't bring it up. You could still move in with her. And then you can disclose your Finnity for keeping the toilet bowl. Axe absolutely clean, whether or not she's left shit stains in it, which probably won't be a a recurring theme though, he did say that her place is kind of shit hole. So like if you talk about moving together, you could talk about general cleanliness, and you don't have to be like, by the way, you left to shit stain. That's good. See you say, oh, it's time. We should talk about our third roommate and she's like wait latte. And he's like we live with someone named general cleanliness who. All right. Those are leuthi. I'm gonna teach you within two toilet bowl maintenance. Meggett? It's tough for your basic training. I am general cleanliness. I do really prefer that the toilet bowl doesn't have shit stains all over the inside of it, and you will drop. Gimme twelve. I don't know. Untold. Lift a streak bowl. Nice. Thank you sound November to. Good. Really good. Actually, I know. It's like I was like fucking sleeper. Good. But like damn that's low key. Her was with with the golden Mike this episode at the end of every episode. We have been giving each other the golden Mike for the MVP. So I think this episode what numbers this three seventy eight or so so I guess for number three seventy eight I will be taking home the golden Mike for the episode have. I we have I ever gotten a golden Mike d thing. I think in episode. There was one episode where I did one episode. I think in the early days early episode, so and you hosted with Ben so that was an episode righted and take the golden, Mike. I asked you if you've never know, of course, you'd never taken it. And you've back and retroactively given out a golden Mike for every single episode. And you've won it for every episode except for the time worked in and then the one episode that you weren't in Ben God, honestly every single episode. I've ever listened to have the line of the episode. And it's like crystal clear that deserve the golden Mike three I have three hundred seventy seven Ben Halcion. And I have to do. I have the golden mikes, which is just given to somebody that had a funny line that up. Do you think be because it's nothing you never had a funny one. I didn't say you never had a funny line. Oh for three seventy seven and having the funniest line over three seventy eight. That's worse. Yeah. I think you're funny. General cleanliness was my joke, by the way, you just I did it for like a minute. And then you said, I don't know what I've been told. I want my toilet bowl. And then that got you the golden Mike, do you think that I deserve it a little bit for coming up with general cleanliness? No, I this. I think that definitely you can't have two golden mikes. I don't want to do anything this episode. I think you're really funny this episode. I thought it was really strong. I thought general cleanliness was actually really good. Yes. I came up with general Glenis, but I really elevated it to the point where it was golden Mike worthy. And before that for that you came up with it. I'm not saying you didn't come up with it came up with it. Give me the fucking silver, Mike, then like I want you have three hundred eighty trophies. There is no silver. I would give you absolutely. If I didn't do this episode and you had to yourself you'd have to golden, Mike. That's how funny you were this episode. You did a really good job. I don't know why you're upset. You've you've declared yourself winner. Which is this whole podcast has not been a competition up until now, and you declared yourself winner of every episode not every episode Ben sorry every episode that you. You think you have the golden Mike best fuck in line of the show. And I don't have any. Nothing. You you've done a lot of episodes of this podcast. You didn't really great coast.

That's the level that I'm playing. So I'm trying to like, you're not letting me say one thing can we? The. We open it up to the public where like people can vote on who they think is the goal deal. Like, if you your it's so unequivocal unanimous that you've won every single one every single one not every single one. I don't know why you keep on saying every single one because then one one. Okay. Three hundred fucking eighty bench shorts. One one of less than one percent. It will ninety nine point fucking seven percent and Evelyn's zero not one of them. I'm saying, let's let the audience decide. Maybe there's someone out there that disagrees. The maybe our fans. Golden Mike for one episode yet.

My guest this week back on the show is Zoe Dempsey. Founder of course of me, cake me and Perform McDonald's CONNOISSEUR. You had a look at the question. Briefly. So go back and I was like that's enough. How. How is the wrist? The wrist is improving. I have obviously I've turned to the fabric RESP- price today because I think Pinkos be. Very umbrella and it's yes, it is for bake me. The Black Suits Maya today so. Blend that in any Swami's also more appropriate for driving, because I shouldn't really wear the Bryce for driving the splint, because if I get in an accident, I can actually be sued. Yet they like you can wear it, but if you get in a car accident, maybe just quickly with that off interesting. Like have a fabric Juan. Thanks! And so challenge in the kitchen that basically you've got pretty much everything that can possibly be wrong with an arm. Breaking. When you prefer broke probably the pain. It was that bad I thought I broke. Pain is is a default. Have a place of break is like. Very Acute, and it's days like maybe a week, but then after the bruising goes down at sort of. Your in a cost or you're in a brutal whatever thing that is protecting its. Don't really notice it. You just become really wake in that hell like Oh. Your muscle withers away, but nerve mooring. It's really bad skydeck. Like so bad that she can. She'll be like crying in the middle of the night if she moves in a row away or whatever it's very painful, and it Kinda just comes on at any point like I could just be sitting on the couch and doing nothing and it just like the shooting pain. So and I've had I've had it before in my. Mouth is well like it's just comes on like I. Don't know it's this really unusual. Well, M- also with my tate when I got my teeth, wife and like so be careful of that new thing and I was like okay, and then I'd have it in. Have the whitening strips. Slate Ba fine, and then like get out of the shower just immediately. Get these nerve pain. That was just crusading. Yeah, so we using like What's up Brian that run us. I bought it from my I went to my dentist so I did. It's just my take the very sensitive, so they'll like. You can't get to one down in the chair. So just do this tycoon one for two weeks. Sensitive do things because of all that sugar. As, a child I had like seven feelings Jesus surprised as still attach student had a feeling to this day, but I do get sensitive teeth I. Don't know what it's many when I go from. Like really cold stuff fucking irritates back. Monday and. We should. Pretty. Inch No, since Cincinnati. So when you are whitening you'll meant to. You sense it on to brush it. And that's helped so much. Wonder, what's insensitive on that is? Going to be some sort of. It's not that take couteau Soviet research space, but it's not bad, but you can. Thais truth how we'd is. A toothpaste. We're talking about it. Can you talk about what's going on the job? He added to it yet. So it's basically a job for call. It's great because it's my first kind of big corporate. Job. That I landed. Post Corolla virus. So obviously lost. Quite a few clients because of that say universal teaches. The. Client but. When you even Vlad to go to the cinema. Cushion. Obviously. That's the one thing I'm really missing. Is A lot. Yeah, it's going to movies alone. The smell of the popcorn I think people started to realize that there will be value like cinemas will never completely go away. That's great. I love going to a cinema I. Don't like you can get everything straightened. Can Stream everything but It's really not I've actually been sitting there. Law recently watching Netflix or Stan or whatever the platform buying because we're GONNA Apple TV because we can buy movies. These movies don't movies coming out. and. It's just not the same lawrence fuck I really wanNA smell of popcorn and I'm like. Cool holiday. It'd be funny, yeah. That'd be good of purchase I. wonder if that's how. It's cool. Fully it's a miniature version of what you get at a cinema, popzette ad, and like it's read our member ecstatically pleasing. We went to an event Mardi Fox. From what folks had an event? Doing like there was a simmons homes had built a home like new modern home in Iraq. Just need the village actually, and they had this whole night and Porsche Melvin with all these different groups, and then there was the most pop- one of the most popular guys. There was the popcorn Mike. And I have one of those traditional. Very fifty sixties. Sarah Cool. We expect sorry back to call guy. Do you still want to? The I I believe they bring out a new product that is meant to. Remove stains for the past ten years, so the whole concept was like winding it back, two thousand and ten so with. Dan this whole concept about cakes. They're kind of winding it back to the top music tracks of two thousand and ten select Justin. Bieber Lady Gaga so it's kind of got psych. The cakes themselves very the obviously in the colgate colors, so they're gonNA be like chocolate mad with. Y very what buttercream! And then they're going to have I bought I went to a sprinkle my sprinkle wholesale yesterday and peaked. Perfect read and what sprinkles to decorate, and they're all these like Karaoke VOB, so it's not just the cake that they made. It influences banks. They're being sent like the colgate products cakes like a karaoke microphone at least of the top ten tracks. How did that come about that? I just reach out directly, so no colgate obviously went to appeal. Company so then I've known. Specifically Amelia who I spoke to from I. Think the Agencies Stock Matthews. She works for them and I've known Milford many's a feel like I'd probably Mitt when I was modeling to be honest. A lot of these people now that I work for with. Yes just from people that I've met over time through modeling Yuppie. It's it's interesting how that always helps you like I. Remember. Some clients will paypal that. We'd we'd worked within similar industries, but I would definitely not the same industry have been. They just come out of the blue. I don't know where it's like like fuck and it goes down to like the power of the network toilet as the power of the network and something. My Dad always told me like you know that quote. It's like it's not what you know who you know. Your Dad was always was not who you know who knows you. They're always gonna be people that are going to help you. It's a good one like that. He was a man of many wasn't. Because I've just about finished, she learned his. fucking? There is the loss books I've got a raid on the ride. Up Liz I remember there was a book that you mentioned that he's the radio talk about. I'm actually never watch. I've never I've never John. Watched the movie. I've never read the book. I I've never done. I should. Because Dad had like four copies religions very. Quite so lack yeah! I've been looking at books of course where we say I've been. Enjoying that old like an old English? Like sayings and Indians and stuff like that. Now. We've been us even when we did these remote. Interviews was okay. We sort of learning about this thing in January I didn't really suspect when they anything. Actually member going on a podcast January, saying like. This'll be nothing and then was mainly because I have a friend WHO's a dad whose dads an epidemiologist. He's like. Get this largely. Be Nothing, but then I don't think we realized like how much China withheld. And, so Yeah. I remember like wholeheartedly believing him, and he's like I mean. He told us a few weeks later like. We don't really know what's going on here. This is really serious I remember when lot does that run. On toilet paper not in strategy, but in Japan. And Hong Kong. And because we've been in Japan in October during a typhoon, and that happened, and so I thought Oh okay, this is really fucking serious like people will take this really seriously. So. What was that like was the moment. So the moment it hit might business. We knew really summit to take it seriously, not when? You. Would have been moments. We thought okay yeah. That's understandable. This person's being cautious about whatever, but like on that Friday the thirteenth to by the way, yes, the grumpy was canceled fashion week was canceled and a bunch on the comedy I was canceled. I think it first so I was watching like random bits of the news during two same January and our members, saying footage of the sky, just like passing out in China. and. Onto the pavement video and I was like well, what the happening, but I still just kind of just almost brushed it off. I was just Kinda like well. There's nothing happening he is. So I. Still working everything, and then obviously the toilet paper thing was just full on I. was, helping my sister moved house. So this is my sister. WHO'S A J? When was? Year so they moved into the new place in Q in. March I think. Yes, it would have been like early. March puck possibly fit, but I think was early March. And Darah. He is an anesthesiologist.

It's a block, but come out and you can give cigarettes. Anyway say he was like you ought to shop, and then it's also. We had that other period where people are like, don't panic shop. Don't panic by, but then you kind of insight. We'll fuck fug to survive like maybe shoot panic, pie anyway. Really did that just I was then panicked about then it kind of couple of weeks went by I was like well I went to. The supermarket couldn't get any aches you. I was like holy sheet.

You'll like doing now, but like this win. You've really started to notice and this is what we're talking about downstairs when you had to bother for. So I'm just contacting my shit to all of my girlfriends on Mike. Brown sugar in the House that they can drop off to me. At home can use like I had so many orders coming through from these like New, York City chunk cookies. So then that's when. I sort of had a major freak out about that and I was like Shit I've got a lot of priorities that I have to get done. Because I also didn't want to let people down. The call wanted to I. Sue hadn't had my mental breakdown then. I was like running on this. Thing and then obviously the post stopped. So I drove around one time two hundred kilometers around Victoria Mama's like sewing is insane like you can't go from like temple. To I. Don't even know where I went I just went everywhere, and I'm like going to do it, and then by the lab relation of. Win Win the happening. You like a post on instagram on a story about. It was like seven PM and you like having A. BRYK for dinner. Off Zoo, like barrick or some shit like that, it's just ridiculous. And then I missed a sub head that was right next door and Do you know what actually it's really interesting looking at it. In hindsight that is what was happening to. You is literally what was happening to the rest. Of the Stri with the breakdown of supply chains completely sorry I was the ingredients, and then it was shipping I. Remember Lawrenson her mom mum's birthday was in March. April April and she sent her a bottle of gin never arrived. So, she had to rebuy another one, saying that was close, so that could be delivered. Same thing happened with Mother's Day with into four rows. So the ball never been den like literally two weeks ago, the gene came back to us. Right so I think. Yes I remember talking to law and it might very sad to see subset it was. It was sort of I. Didn't think it was your fault. I think it was just A. All when you're in that situation, you realize like how talked the situation? And? I think it was. It was very stressful for me and I'm sure for so many other baiters 'cause I still get a lot of stuff from the supermarket. And obviously, when that was gone, I was just like holy crap i. have so many orders. What do I do and that's when I started talking to Bodey who? funnily, enough worked at the same cafe. New York that I did but I. was there one year prior? And he hoped me out with eggs supplier and I was like all dot, and then what about brand show? Ranch. Anyway and then I got onto. It's such a beautiful community of Baker's especially in Melbourne, because that's where I'm from but like. We just help each other out, so I couldn't I was so overwhelmed by the support of customers follows buying my product. Obviously, it was winter runs stuck at home. They wanted comfort foods. Go these orders. was so grateful, but at the same time. I just kept taking them on to try and. I think sustain a business. I had no way to do. Why that was so stupid, I remember. We ordered some because I said to learn fuck like this is getting a bad for people like. In this, so we will focusing on people and friends that were in the hospitality space and buying stuff, and then I'm member. You dislike fuck. I'm just going to give refunds and I'm curious in hindsight, t think. That help at. It helped me mentally like I looked at the bank and also. But, I was like what? I've like these people have been so good to me some email, so also my system. On my online system on shopper I could not work out with the help of my girlfriend. WHO's in the industry had to email everyone with the remaining order at the same time on. So I had to go through every single order individually, and I like to personalize things so I write their name I realized they were message so I said you have the option of these, so I I said like this is what's happening launched it on Instagram, because that's where that's the first platform I go to then. I sent them all emails and I gave them the option. Most people said they wanted to raise fund which I just had to call by. It's hard because I'm very emotional about my business, but I also had had to well. This is a business, so I just have to give them they refund, and that was fine, because mentally for me I would hate to be waiting for four cookies for like five months, and also people lost their jobs. It's like. Just. Give them the refund so they can use that money. Some dinner or something like that's fine so. And then I had some people that are still very loyal and are waiting for their order so obviously in new. South, Wales I did fulfill quite a few orders, but then when I did. My research physically could not make any more so the remainder ten orders that I had I amount the McCain, saying, what would you like to? Some said Raytheon. Others will like well why to buds three months. Whatever we have to support you, so that was really lovely. So I'm hoping when this podcast released. They have got the crease. But that's good, though it's not. It's not A. Ten people minus fee that go to array fund is not a massive. It's his overwhelming as what you probably previously had. A still. Low Brank, it was a lot of that was like thousands of dollars that IRA funded. But I mean the people now the left it's short. Yeah, yeah, and they're also the ones that are. Very loyal to my businesses, well Sir I think they're very understanding, but also to the people that wanted to ray on. I have no biggie with them. What that's your? Business like I would also maybe want to that. So, that's fine. What did you learn? In hindsight, what are you? GonNa Change about. The business. So basically last year when we spoke I sort of had just been doing those chocolate biscuits all the time. which sold really well, but then. I kind of became a workaholic and I put my hands in a number of pies or cookies. So I was like. Let's do this Colorado Cookie. This insomnia cookie zooms and Miss Minty Jenna Wagon. Let's do this this like so many different cookies and I didn't even realize that's a shit load of work like. You know and then I kind of created this pick and mix ID where people can like you know it's like picking your you go to shop and you. pecan makes the what flavors you always sort of wanted to do that with cookies so I did this and mix so people could choose I want to of those. I want three of those one of those which was great, but it was just too much work for one person to take on I. Mean I. Did my Pastry Chef Las G, who was great and he helped me a really stressful time lost August, but he's going to see me and I was very supportive going to Sydney in fulfilling his draymond. South then. It was back to me and I just. Worked way too much. In hindsight I really shouldn't have anyway. I did what I did pass in the past, but moving forward. I found what my name is as well so obviously. That's at the moment those chunky. The New York City Chunk which I've been wanting to do for since I got back from New York, but it's just like things. Just get to whatever and I wanted to do them with a lot of integrity, so I wanted to do them well. I wanted to. Market that differently I think before I used to just sort of like B.. Run off my fate and think like Oh. This is a good idea. Let's just put this on instagram and launch this without really thinking about budgeting without thinking about. The quality of the products I wanted to sort of investigate the best chocolate and the best supplies and wholesalers, and then you know really get my packaging like down to a t and I wanted met pink boxes, and I wanted them to a particular size, and I wanted this confetti in a lot of people started using the same confettis may which is great for my confetti. Lady like she's booming, but I'm like well. That's I wanNA point of difference now, so she got a custom mix just for me. That has plastic. That's another thing I wanted to change I. Do not want to have plastic. Plastic anymore intrusive, so I've got the cardboard boxes, and all of those chunk coming paper bags with the stamp, and then I have cards that now explain, thank you for purchasing. This is where the story about the cookies from. This is how you eat them, so if you want to rate them, you Nevin for what one fifty phrase them this and it's obviously got the ingredients on the back of the car so I just wanted to really think about how to mock it that well, and also on creating hot around a product launch now so I like this is something that I learned in. With Lauren and it's all about like. And creating that hot. before you launch, and also what I learned in my fashion curry to unite. Would sounds like really? You realize that you need to simplify things and be cutler. aric covered is actually being a really. Good opportunity for people like for for us as an example, we were doing like eighty percent of the work. We're doing this video based. And then carved came along, and we were doing website stuff some media and Maybe social stuff here and there, but we not advertising that type of work, and then we realize as soon as covert happened that we had to advertise for that, we had to get out. Our supply of freelances and videography that we use way better because we're getting. Just completely overwhelmed exactly like even now I'm hiring because I I was completely overwhelmed for change processes. We invested in like. Little even little software for managing client projects that previously used to just be all done in Google drive and shit like that, which is good, but Sometimes it can become, too, but is it. Does it really does and that's exactly how I felt? It was just all too much, and it wasn't until I sort of. Had this bright down during covert I finally last year I. Thought I wish my limit, but then I push myself a little bit. In the end of Laucius, same like so naive, in hindsight like I feel like he really October. November last year was intense for us, but in hindsight it's actually. December like for me. So East as probably my busiest time of the. People always eating. So Christmas tree. They were trade. Whereas Christmas is so busy, but not everyone wants cookies. Apple by other people Christmas presents that have nothing to do with food so I also Christmas. Time is the only time that my family kind of come together from other parts of the world so I really want to have time with them, so I was like look I can take on as other orders, but maybe. I, just sort of made the decision to like only make a certain number of things. I have a lot of self debt. That like she is this? Really what I WANNA do is in sorry. The products that I launched for Christmas. I was like Oh. Is this the best thing that I do and like I look back and I'm like wow, that would like us. GINGERBREAD men look fabulous. I, White, much impotent to those. But life. I also thought that was a changing point. Because remember September October. I talked to some of my girlfriends, and I was like I'm not in a good hit space. I feel like a still want bake me cake me, but it is affecting me in a negative way mentally. But I think this just happens. Being entrepreneurs, you sort of highs and lows, massive highs, lawyers, but also because we're happen, xenos, you start doing a new thing and the renell and the excitement from the new thing is there and then wears off after about six months when the consistency of it. and. That's what that's where I think that's the point where you realize you've got to get other paper to be doing that thing because the Eirik, the best about an entrepreneur is the. It is and that's what you needed. When I was constantly just doing the same thing and also repeating that process in the kitchen I was like. It's fucking. Term Up. It's like I have to think of all the I have to do. The social media I have to actually do the kitchen after the packaging like my mom. She's a real clean at the packaging. The shot flip but I'm like. This is just all too much I. don't even have time to sit down and think of new product, so December I actually just had all this time to January especially because everyone goes what no one buys January. January it's my birthday also. My birthday is like a sh- sheep talk. No one's here. I'm like shit like. Time it's just like I like to go away from my birthday so I'm somewhere else because if I'm in Melbourne, it's like why don't you? Go Down to the Moon GRUDEN's Syringe Paul soon like I do. Go down to Rye and things like that, but only for day trips. Really my family used to get a pricing lawn, so I would always there. In your living in Venice. Your you're you guys had a holiday has man Eliza? Lawrence parents live in math carbon. We'll try down once a month. We didn't see him for three months. Because of Covid so I love doing that, but actually yeah, apart from that. We don't really go down and stay there because I find amalgam album just moves down to either side of the eastern West Coast Yeah. Sighing away, from people dream. And it's like everyone. Stand there with the best thing to do would be to go away. Well! That's what I made isolated Bali all the time. Physique seven years. My family would always book, Bali we went. We went for new years one year. During that time of year was writing season. It's. Very litters. I would fly vein for like. Four or five years, but I used to go. With my sister Jackie she would always get. Villas in would go as a family, and that was the last place that I went with my dad on a trip, so we like. What do you want to do few twenty I? You want a party with your friends, or do you want to go to Bali and we can take like your best friend. We have the family there. Might godparents ended up coming up as a surprise, and I'm obsessed with Romeo and Juliet every movie that I watch I. Swear is a love story. We'd sort of why, but they my sister. How did this whole thing of Romeo and Juliet for my birthday in Valley. And I'm so glad. I took that because that was the last time that we will. Send me bit together as a family, the bedrock. Did you know that of the tone? Well No, because my dad was still fine. He had he's. My Dad has story. because. Yeah, so he had that, and that was fine, but it wasn't until, so that was my based. Jan Selena went for like. January for like two or three weeks to Bali, my birthday and then I came home worked at my fashion job, and then I went away to America, and then that's when my dad's. He's cancer started. He's got lung cancer. Before. I left to America and I was like Oh. Mom. And Dad like my should stay home like I think you need some help like I was like knows all you need to go on this trip. And then when I came back six weeks later, he literally could not walk. Choose it just, and then we'll like. This doesn't make sense. I could Bain diagnosed Parkinson's, but like this doesn't make sense like. How can you just go from like? Getting a few shakes to not walking? Send that. He actually had spot-on Tani's Brian. On the Sarah. Just shows that it had been there longer than well. It is yes a he couldn't actually. He wasn't strong enough. The Oh so when I was away, he was doing came, and he just was not fit enough, and he couldn't cope with it so then they went back to radiotherapy, and that just helped to shrink the tumor, so it kind of went back from. My recollection is sort of shrunk in the lungs trunk in the Bryans. Kinda kept shrinking, but it did go back and forth and then. For the last six months, it's sort of just shrunk went to Rahab. I used to go from the hospital around the corner. I used to be freemasons quite bit ruin. Yes, so that's office superstar Lawrence. That had a scare recently. So it's it's not it's not the worst about it is the. Like all the fucking testing. Yeah, because it takes so long. I didn't realize how long this stuff. Yeah! I didn't really go like. I don't I think I just kept working like I needed to keep myself busy on. It was only until and then when dad would come home. And I'd go with him to his Rehab and things like that, but I could really see quite a bit of depression coming back. And it was definitely very tough, but I just remember my older sister Jackie especially. When Dad was in Palliative care, she was like. I'd stopped working I also was dating God at the time, and I said I'm just you're so lovely, but I just cannot take these on right now. It's just not the right time for me. and. I would literally just go from work to Pella. UK, whatever and then just I stopped working after, but Jackie said she's I way as a family need to remain strong and positive around dad, you can't. We can't be wake around. Yeah. Exactly so. That's why the Palliative care at Cabrini though were amazing and we used to go in. Every weak- like I'll go in there every day, but like everyone would have. Parties would bring like little alcohol things we'd have like. Baby Pizza one day would have means to another like, and we just had these parties with dad because he was such a character, he used to love entertaining so even when he was like a. we just would go and. It was a really it was. It was very sad, but you got to. You can't be wake at those times. You have to be strong for those feel like those moments like it's better to have as we'd as the sounds, it's better to have a relative. I think having A. Terminal illness like cancer versus. A An acute illness that you have no opportunity to have any time with them like we've recently, my grandmother died last year like early in the year and she'd had dementia for like six years. So you've been a long time coming. But. My my grandfather died when I was six. And he died from. Ages when my grandpa really yeah, but it was unusual. Wasn't unusual. He was smoking a pack of cigarettes, and I had the heart attack, and he'd had a triple bypass before and Sony. Are We documenting his story because he's been covered in this Greek newspaper? Super thing at the moment and My uncle was saying like it's really. Fahim. It's still really upsets him. Because he was in Germany on a holiday at the time, got a call to say like. A he he by chance was coming back the day before and the day that he landed. Like in the morning to say like Dad's had a heart attack, and he just got in time to say goodbye to, and that was it. And so he still really like is still upsets him to this day yet. No, I'm very appreciative that we got the time to spend even those last six months six weeks. Whatever I'm very appreciative. We got that time together. We said what we need to I. Actually knew exactly when he was gonNA. Pass I just I, have this. I let us in yeah, I have the since it happened with my godmother, it happened with my grandmother and it also having with my dad. And I'm like. Wait a minute like the angle death like that like I'm like I. Just knew obviously we had. The doctor said you've only got once. He started having the morphine time we've only got. Two just had this feeling that I didn't want to go to bed that night, but I whispered into his ear and I said. I was I'm pretty sure I wasn't the loss of visa, but I think I was the last family member at. The palliative care room and I said we're here. We Love You Jordan's here from Germany orients here. Everyone's in the room with had a party together and it's okay you can go to slate now. And I was like and then I left, and just bolt is out then I went to bed and I just I was like I don't WanNa go to slow us if I go to sleep, I know that I'm going to get the call. I remember those saying similarly grandma because they think it's. It's really awful the way they're. They're in bed, and because the doctor start like. I just remember on had charted, said like nerve sauce, nor They just stop fading her. Giving it water and like. When someone's dementia died, they started to really deteriorate. Like more than a cancer patient, it's really strange. Night Dave's I. Don't know how to explain it, but like as an example, she had lost a taste so many times that it was useless her having tape, so she had no teeth in. Is Really? Like, the way that you see them, versus what they were like is very different, and it's also with all the drugs they pumping in the weeds. That medical middle smell and then went, dad passed away all went away, and he actually got because my very Carla. He got some vibrance back into his face, and I was like well like the next day I went back and I was like he actually looks to so pace and like back. He'll be nervous hair, but I'm like he looks like Michael it looks. Like? Yeah, yeah, it was really spend. My my dad like an I were. A they'd give you like a little cotton bud. Are and they. Water on my bedtime. Source Oh sad, but. Life unfortunately. I'm so grateful. Dead I had pretty good relationship, but I was very scared for him for quite some time. Just have this anger. Management issues and I was like Oh my God. I never WANNA. Do anything bad. My Devil get angry, but we had a great. Loss four years in particular like when I was seventeen eighteen to twenty one. which is good because that's when I say? Why! It's nice to have I. Parent Have Something Terminal Way you're. You're forced in a way to to maximize that relationship versus very seldom because I feel like people forget when you leave high school and you move out a home. That's like ninety nine percent of the time that you. There's a stat that I've seen it's like ninety five or ninety nine percent of the time that you ever spend with your parents in your life, and not not all of people. Realize when you move into. Well I'm so glad I'm and I just moved out of? Twenty, but I had those years with dad in the new tour accounts like I, grew up in Cantabria but I had those east, whereas a lot of my siblings because I moved out, older sister moved into state, which is very unusual yet. It's very very very rare to have. Would challenge before downstairs about grants and bonuses and whatnot. Do you qualify for any of the? Cash Flow Bruce saw. I said earlier I danced. Is that I accidentally bought Kosei job? Seek out and I'm like I'm not taking a job I. Have a job so I. I'm eligible for John Kepa a sole trader. So yeah, that's been very helpful. Especially after I had to refund all those people, and because of this I can't actually works. Do? You know if you qualify. There's this thing called the eight to your cash flow Bush is. Grand between grown that I didn't say that and someone I know applied for that and got that and we're like issued a done. That's also. Got It. To with this, I've been finding the about it because they've been debating McCallum so. I'm still working that out button. I found about one from the Victorian government the die before it ended. So lucky, and it is if you getting job caper in Your Business and your Melbourne and you're affected by Covid then they had expanded that to give ten grand to people, and I applied on the morning, and finished seeing that night, and I was like China Towel as many people as possible. To do. It finished on the twenty second of May or the twenty nine. I must have been the twenty, not because my birthday was early that week. Something like ours just before I came home just before the. End of May so and that has helped us by that camera. which is amazing. Damn, it's you know very. I'm very grateful for the job. If you had if you had ten gram, would you spend it on? Wow. It would go straight to rent. Well I live alone in south and it's good. I think it's I love my place, but it's it would go straight. We you be working. Yes so I'm working now with them, the dialing grope and I'm very lucky to be where I don't want to give too much, but yes I'm very lucky to my mentor. Also, that's given me space and I definitely need a commercial spice. Just for the quantity of cookies we have to make as on also going into wholesale, which I was meant to pray covert all shutdown. That's exciting, so that was great. I've never been ready for wholesale. And now I'm ready. That is a different whole ballgame you go from retailers, a little more volatile host sal waymo consistent because. Was Wholesale. They'd have to order minimum minimum amount and also I'm sort of only stocking a particular group of cafes. It kind of exclusively. Who I really have worked within the past. And I really respect, and I really love those cafes so I'm not just doing it to. Sort of yes I'm doing it to get money, but I'm also like that fits in with my brand, always about what? Makes a lot of people approach me, but unlike Nah know about going there. What was the place in Toronto village that you did the the pop up? Oh, yeah, I'd that Recommendation Mr L. Cafe? Vary! I'd very. We'd client meeting with the Guy Dating the Guy Lives around the corner I needed to make me around that area because I was literally on High Street for client shoot. And I just wanted to zip around. Lauren was still managing it and come back, and so he walks in, and so this guy has one of the first alcohol-free bees night stralia. But they look like BIA. Very good very very good. So we're competing CELAYA. This social media contract and He. Puts down these three BS. And, he's like Oh. And he doesn't tell him it's alcohol. We're in this cafe and he's plunked down these beers and I'm like you should probably. Like calm them down because you can get a lot of trouble for that licensing wise, and then he just opens it up. And it just looks like slamming beers in this cafe. We already coffees and all that, but it was such a strange mating, and I often asked me afterwards like Oh. Is that be I'm like no, it's it's alcohol free, Beer. lasix, it's interesting. The strangest encounters are generally the most interesting. Cafe. scored. Have met is current older guy with his. Yeah, think so. Bitch cars of. Another family run plays. Grow loose. Ball Yay. Loza question. You're asking you for that. Getting I cannot see many things about ECOMMERCE and influence and all this stuff, but I'm curious to get your perspective on what's going to happen with? The economy like I mean because you've got a perspective from what's going on in your world. And I'm curious because. It does fit into hospitality, but it doesn't. It's still like retail ECOMMERCE. It's still bates or edible goods. What are you noticing about? How people are engaging you at the moment you getting a lot of demand Parsifal, if yes, so it dramatically increased. Even pre well. When would we say pre covert? Harkin pre covered is anywhere before Australia. brought. See you think OK. Yeah, because this is an interesting point. I had a debate with an insurer. and. I had to take him to the regulator because they wouldn't pay out air insurance policy because of a wedding in May because they believed it was knowing all my by gender journey twenty-fifth say in my business. It wasn't that it was covered was like after so I'm always really busy and stuff. And that was a crime, so that was backing so much was a huge for me, so you can pretty much the but much included April probably, and then I was like yeah, okay, going came grinding, and then I was like all content any supplies. What I moment to do blah? But then I've been out of physical work for about two months now so. It's hard for me to say what it's going to be like coming back. I'm sort of I'm. Confident in my products and in my business. If he can personality that I will still have those contacts and I was still have those loyal customers i. also you know there's customers that I've lost because they were so pissed off, so you're just going to get those people, so that's fine whatever? You feel in your heart, but it's not going to go to zero. No, I feel like if anything I am like I've had a mental breakdown that came to a breakthrough and I've been able to reassess my business plan. And I'm just going about it a different way now, and I think it's you just have to adapt to what is happening and what I wanted to do. Before is not necessarily the Pathak going down, I. Do you just have to get to a crossroad and I? I'm a Catholic I do. Take calculated risks I think, and I'm very business minded, but I can also be a bit airy-fairy. It'd be like. Oh, it's down this track. Spend this money and it's like no. You have to be smart about what you do and not. Also caught. Yeah, I am I feel like I've got a smart. I can be hotheaded, but I can be smart about things and not invest all my money into something. I just try and go about things at a slower pace because I also feel like startups. If you invest too early in with a water. Money can lose that money quickly you done. It's like. The basically like. Running a setup I feel like. Just removing as many risks as possible yeah, and like some of those risk can be. A like. Risk like literally that all could be supply chain risk like moving from one supplier to another like with the eggs. So, it's little things like that and I agree I think. We've had that too, and I feel like co voted. For, at least a generation of entrepreneurs could be a really. Good lesson it's a great lesson for existing entrepreneurs. If, someone came to me and was like. Start a cake business. At anytime I would sight really. Do you really want you to start? Chris like GM San. HOW STRESSFUL IT! Maybe you should go work for someone because getting a salary like that is a pace of care, it'd be as you, but then I'd also say yes for existing entrepreneurs. It's been a great listen and people can. It's actually a time for everyone to slow down physically mentally everything and reassess what you're doing and say look at what is selling the most. What is the most important to your core values of a business and just re look at that and say if you're actually on that path, and like if you're not, then you have the chance to re. visit, but if someone said to me in covert I WANNA, start this business. I'd say. Is a terrible time to start. Toys Now. Maybe, explain just in two to three years just why? Will. This is going to be. This is going to take a good ten years to. Disobeyed like to like. The recession may be shorter. Yeah, in terms of timeframe, but the recovery will be the same as it always is, which is typically a tentative, so I think it's just an. If you WANNA start hunting, I reckon just too seriously. Have think like I still wanted to do. A pop found a great location Hawthorne, and then I was so excited, but then I went to my mom and she's like. Now you shaw. You've just started paying your own rent. This is another you know three hundred bucks on top of that rain. You've got really religious decree, think about these that I have hooked. She sort of brings me down. And I'm like you know what the pop ups all about the universe and signs and things like that and I'm like it's just not meant to be right now. In two to three years, it will be of enough I've enough business going on. Mike the Commercials. The wholesale the pope up got at top. Top Paddock. Sacred I'm guessing by the. Not an I, it's happening on the fourth of July so. The by. So I've got I've got enough on my plate. I think if you think anyone who's been through this period and is sort of recruit everything and. And like you said has reevaluated what you doing. If you can just focus and break, even and maybe if you're lucky, make profit in the next twelve months. Then you are doing. Better than the vast majority of people and destroying I think that. There's going to be like even in our industry. We are because we're about to hire the. Talent available like I think I was reading the daylight thirty percent of the big four agencies that liquor stuff. So so thirty percent of their work forces now eight, the under employed or gone. and not hiring any graduates. So it's going to be the next twelve to eighteen months is going to be tough, but I feel I. Look at scenario for Bartha different businesses, and I have a small internally knowing that least will be. Archaic something! I will be capable. Just I'll just have to tested and say what happens. Obviously there's going to be people that are not going to buy because they don't have as much money in there. You're not going to buy cookies if you if you have enough money. Yes, have I, but also it's sort of you know. You should consider this one thing that I was talking about recently with another. I can see found, and it's called the lipstick effect. So what often happens during a recession is instead of buying a selene bag. You may buy some Dior Chanel lipstick. So instead of maybe going out for wall. Fancy cake or Dinners out or cafes or whatever you decide to buy a knauss cake to have at highly cookies to have exactly why even last year I sort of looked at the business model and I was like this is all made to order, but. I'm not going to make a profitable business. Only doing made to order cakes, there's enough there's enough businesses in Melbourne do that and a very successful at it. I wanted to make a product that is A. Cheaper product price point, but still has the quality. The quality everything that's so. It's actually it's expensive for the the item in his. Michalis aren't shape, but you're paying for that packaging the branding Mike Creativity which also my dad said, do not sell yourself short based on your creativity. There's all the people that can make cookies out there, but they don't the same brain as you. So you've got to take that into consideration. You pay for everything about it. There's so much love that goes into it so I just wanted to create some products that were a cheaper price point that the average person can buy, but still we think that it's a trait for them, and it's very special. That seems like a some point during all this. You're watching the founder again. I watched that. Lakes. Maybe there was a lot. There's going be a lawn to in the movie about that. Yeah I think so. Why would say but he's? He's problem. Actually the business until it became the McDonald's corporation was he was too focused on cost cutting. Yes, which? Actually deteriorated the brand brand, and especially with like you know. The milk shakes that they had the sess- off talking. Like a Yeh doodoo memo. Relied hot on quality products. Can still sell it for profitable margin? There is no reason that I would cut on the quality of my chocolate like the chocolate I uses or West Calabro. Top premium chocolate like had to buy. You can trust love. Fifteen kilo bags Mike. If you. Try that compared to say. I don't have a problem with this. Because I used to use Nestle, but if you just tried one calabro chalk cheese. This is not the totally human outfield. Like. Tyson denise latest Kabri versus cold. And you. Completely, different. But one of the best. Pat. Is I've ever used? Is the WOOLWORTH'S BRANDT? and. You can always by the color of the course. The color is very defining the ice to find born euchre's. Coloring to be the best. Plus Star. That's another one. Anyway. That's past, always probably great one. I also use caliber now cocoa powder, but if anyone's making a chocolate cake if you don't use if you're not making. You're making A. Normal flour chocolate hiking always use a very high quality cocoa powder. That is a darker color to refer them on the point that you're essentially making this sort of like what is happening. Is People owning more of their? Business and supply chain a lot of freebies businesses they would outsource X. Y. or Z.. Maybe the packaging is an example I. think the more that you can earn. The price can still remain at a price, but the Mahjong crisis stool of really good product and I think that's what we're learning. That's why we bought that camera. Over time will save money by having internally and we better internally doing that thing that previously we would have just got out so i. just do well say on the opposite could now because I've got this problem and for mentally I can't physically take on. Not Amana work out source things. Still under the bike mccague ME BRANDT Pastry shifts and things like that. Sometimes I'm selecting it for a person who is very qualified at doing. It's a good Tyson product and I can at least outsource that, so I can ease my time in the most efficient and productive. Why somewhere else? Or want to jump into rapid fire questions now for Sort during last time. What's what are you been watching? Netflix Well pig on Netflix. Will recently I've been watching is a cold love love loss IEA. That's the right. Yeah with an Kendrick is a good year. It's really good. Sort of. She goes just love her. She's such a commit like she's Canadian really. But it's about literally just her life. She goes through dating different people, and it's I don't know it's just very reliable for me. Like for any girl or whatever I think it goes could relate to that show. I've seen the trailer for because we watched the great. With Nicholas, halts and Offending the youngest sister. Really fucking good very very good Seri-, so yeah, we'll have to check out love live. Any purchase that you made pre or during covid it's going to be on the turn of box and is like really helped to l.. A. Rose Courts Facial Rolla. Is. It was like seeing you can buy.

"Welcome to the sunny side up series. Seriously? What was I thinking with this title?

This is going to be a collection of ten how'd you podcast episodes, I repeat ten podcasts episodes that you're going to be able to bench right now?

The time is now these episodes have been created. Specifically for you know, go get a Colgate. Some paper your favorite little notebook and start this episode right now. Now, before you end it I would love if he could rate review. Subscribe leave me a comment on IT tagging at the hobby workaholic post to Facebook and Instagram. And let me know what you guys think I love your feedback. Let's dive in. Hello. Hello. And welcome back to your fourth episode of the Sunnyside F-series. Thank you, guys so much for tuning and I really appreciate it today. I wanna talk to you about how why it is so important to share your story now I've done a bunch of podcasts on this before. So. If you've listened to them think you but it had to be a part of this how to series because it's such a big part of my life, and it's such a big thing to do. So it had just had to be included again. So. Whether or not you're sick. Are, you know, somebody that sec or you're going through some things they divorce or a break up? You wanna share your story with others, because you need your own little tribe, you need to help other people. I feel like I went through. You know, the last three years of my life for that reason so that I could help so many other people, which is, again, why I'm sharing today. So it's going by sharing your story is going to help you power through it's going to help you find a community that you're need of if you're going through something that, you can't share the time you need to document it. You need to just save skis meager. Photos and videos and share them at a later time. I've been doing that for something that I'm working on now. And if you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I've been documenting everything having to do with my legal case, however, there's a lot behind the scenes that you have not seen yet and that's because I don't wanna ruin my strategy, ding my own attorney. Now, I have to keep in mind that. I just can't make a mistake. I can't mess things up. So there's a lot I cannot post now because it's going to destroy my strategy. And so, I have to keep it to myself. But once I'm done, it's all going onto my YouTube channel because I want others out there to be able to know that they can do exactly what I just did. And they can get through, what I went through, if they just power through it, and I'm sharing like so many more stories there. But. If you're going through something, there are others out there that are going through the same thing. And if you can help this one other person, it's going to be so powerful you're gonna feel so good. I can't tell you. Like I really can't put into words how it feels when somebody reaches out to me, and they tell me that they've been following me in listening to my shows or they saw, like Facebook live. Or they went to my YouTube channel, and, you know, they're going through the same thing that I went through, and like Saint thanking me for sharing my story, and like my tips and tricks, like whatever I was going through because it helped them get diagnosed or help them get another doctor or you know, just made them feel better general. It's like the craziest thing you know, if you're going through something you need to be organized, you need to document you need to, you know, put together a file on your phone, or in your office, or an notebook and just document be organized with everything you need to also share that whatever the case may be. There's other people that are. To go through something that you're going through, and by sharing your story. It's really going to help them. And that's all I can really say on that. Like if you don't wanna share it. That's okay if you cannot share at the time. I would just keep collecting things that maybe you can share later on. And if you don't want to do it, that's fine. But I'm just saying, I believe in the power of sharing what's going on because it's going to help other people it's like the most powerful thing I've ever done. And when I first was diagnosed with MS and animal, and all these other things, the first thing I did was to a Facebook live. I, I really don't know how I got the like the strength to do that immediately. Just went on Facebook and did a live video, and I was crying, and I was shaking, and it looked like I had to rats because I was shaking so bad. And that was from drugs, I was on from scripture medication. I was told a like I needed and looking back at them, I'm not sure if you have that time up time hop app, but there are so many weeks will like weird things will happen to me or just like feel weird and then I look at my time. Hop in. It's the anniversary of like getting put on a matter, starting chemo, or getting a diagnosis or a Facebook live. Papa will pop up from, you know, saying, I don't need chemo anymore. I'm so excited. And then, like two weeks later, it's like, okay, I do need chemo. I do have to start the trip in and it just really messes with my thought process in, like how to move forward, like with my healing, which are talked about on one of the last episodes, and those things are really hard to, like, get your mind out. I guess my get your mind out of the gutter, like get out of that negative space because it can suck you right back in make you so angry. But those apps are like good and bad. And I think I've done a show on that before, but, you know, I also have to realize, I've grown so much from those specific situations, and I'm a completely different person, and I looked completely different and I feel completely different. And if I didn't share those stories before. Or I wouldn't have found a community online that, you know, was supportive in that has has gone through that, and, you know, I still talk to other women that have an Emo and, you know, I wasn't cured, there's no cure for this disease. And when I'm done with my legal part, I'm still going to support them and be friends with them. And, you know, I lived through that, and unfortunately, there's no Karen, they're still living through it, and they're still going through their chemo. Treatments are being hospitalized and it just sucks. And I'm not just saying that for a moment saying that for anything in life anything. That you may be going through a divorce or break up or custody of children or. Just anything in life. Really, there's going to be moments that just suck. And if you feel if you have the power to share your story, you just need to because what you're going through is something that everybody else is in need to hear it in need to see because it's going to help them because they're going through it as well. And maybe if it's very different circumstance than is very relatable. I'm pretty sure on different levels. So that's really what I wanted to touch on today. I'm going to be writing a little bit more on this in the show out. So be sure to check out my medium post. And I just wanna share obviously, not a doctor. I'm just a professional patient. Hashtag professional patient. Hopefully, I won't be for much longer, but I was for years. And that's why I'm sharing this series. I'm sharing off Mike experience. I'm sharing my stories that I could help so many other people out there that eventually will hear the show. So if you have a friend, or family member that, just needs a little kick that needs a little boost morale boost that needs to understand the importance of sharing their story, please feel free to share this episode with them or have them reach out to me. I'd be more than happy to talk to them. It's just really preference. I just felt comfortable and so I did, sometimes I would just hold onto my content like videos and pictures until after the fact, and that's totally fine, too. You know, if you run a business online, it's scary thing because, you know, will posting my chemo treatment affect my business. Absolutely. It will however, you know, you find your tribe online, you find clients that really believe in you that know that you can put in the. I've been working with clients for over a year now that have been with me since I was sick and they're still here. So you just need to know that the people will your clients will show up for you just like you show up for them all the time. Your friends will show up for you just like you're going to show up for them all the time. So you're going to go through it all you're going to go through fringe. You're going to go to your family your go through clients, but in friends and relief, but at the end of the day, it's gonna make you feel so good by sharing your story. And having that first message saying, like you really helped me out, and I feel like I always say, sharing his carrying, so that's it. That's all I have to say on this topic because I'm going to be writing a lot more in my medium post. So stay tuned for that.

The Axe Files with David Axelrod

1:01:15 hr | 2 years ago

Ep. 285 - Gloria Borger

"And now from the university of Chicago institute of politics and CNN the axe files with your host, David Axelrod. Great pleasure over the last three years on election. Lassen debate nights to sit on CNN panel next to Gloria borger that network's chief political analyst and one of America's great veteran political. Journalists has sat down with Gloria the day after the midterms last week to talk about the results. But also the talk about her remarkable career as one of the real pioneers among women in political journalism. Here's that conversation. Gloria borger good to see you on a eventful week. We're recording this the day after the mid term elections, and I'm gonna get to all of that the sacking of the attorney general, and and all of that news because there's no rest for the weary. But I wanna talk a little bit about your own journey. I. Starting a new Rachelle, which I as I remember was where rob Petrie and Laura Petrie lived in the Dick Van Dyke show, your quintessential your quintessential suburban community in New York. Tell me about tell me about your folks. And so shall I actually was born in the Bronx. And when my father opened a air conditioning television store with his brother, we've moved to the suburbs. We moved to shell New York. But we lived in an apartment building never never lived in house. My mother was a homemaker and my father commuted into the city every day. I went to public schools culminating in the wonderful new Rochelle high school, which was very large high school. I think my graduating class at six or seven hundred kids very diverse, and it burned down my senior year. Oh, my. There was an arsonist actually my junior year. And my senior year we went to school in trailers in actually just went back to new Rochelle high school to speak to the the students there, and it was an phenomenal experience for me because it's now twenty five hundred kids all kinds of education from you know, kids who end up at Harvard to special vocational training. It's just an amazing place. So it was a wonderful place to go to high school new Rochelle back then was probably not terribly diverse. Right. It actually it actually was it actually was it was divided by one road in town. But there, but it actually was a pretty diverse high school, and my friends were black and white which for those days, and I'm gonna lady was kind of amazing. And so that's how we that's how we grew up. And there were a lot of private schools around. But we couldn't afford it. And I'm glad I didn't go actually knows politics discussed in the house. Politics was not a big issue in my house. My parents are Democrats were Democrats, and it was just kind of Sumed, but no not not really issues discussed local issues were discussed. My mother was very involved, but politics per se, not so much. I was the editor my highschool newspaper. You'll be surprised to learn. And so I was I was very involved with the politics of my high school, but but at home, it was sort of much more traditional than the way. My kids grew up in Washington DC where politics was discussed non stop. And you you were the editor of the newspaper. You were what drew you to that? What I think I've always been kind of gossip, and I like to ask questions the Ugandan herald was what it was. And and it was we we put it out. I think every couple of weeks and so. It was it was migrate experiment because I loved it so much in high school I knew and it was crazy that early on. But I just love the reporting, and I love the writing and I love causing the faculty to get upset with what we were doing. And nothing's really changed. And I went to college. I was in my college paper. So I kinda stuck with that. And my husband always says to me, you're so lucky because you knew what you wanted to do from day one. I'm not sure I did. But I liked it. And I still do speaking of diversity you brought some to Colgate. Went to school is like an all male. Preserve? I was in the very first class of women. I'm the oldest living female graduate of Colgate university. So I was in the first class of women there. And that's that's a a bold move. It was it. Well, it I loved the school. I was afraid of being a member of the first class. I actually wanted to go to Princeton. But I didn't get in. So Kobe was my second choice, and happily it I I ended up there. But it was very strange thing. You know, when you think back on it, and I've talked to a lot of women Colgate about its since. And Colgate now fifty one percent female they prepared for us by putting plastic flowers in the urinals in the men's bathroom, and they gave us irons in Arnie boards. And I remember my father turning to my mother and saying I'm not gonna leave her here. Do you know the other night we were sitting together on election night? You saw all of these. I mean, women really were a big part of the story. Women, you know, whole class new class of women coming to the house was their three or four women elected governors and women really driving the story that women voters in the in particular in suburban areas, and when we met women candidacies, generally, so I I asked you this in the context of of your own experience. I mean, how did you process that? Well, I I love it. I always think people turn to women when they need the mess. Cleaned up in many ways works that way in my house. And I think that now. Yeah. People are turning to women because they are different and they are offensive, and they provide something something new, and I think that when you see a hundred women now in congress. It's it's very exciting. I mean, I go back long enough to recall when women could not wear pants on the floor of the Senate when there was no ladies bathroom outside the the Senate chamber. I remember standing on the floor of the convention when Gerry Ferraro was nominated for vice president for vice president eighty four and getting chills because I thought this is the beginning of something only it really wasn't. But but things never go in a straight line. Exactly. Exactly. But I remember at that moment thinking, this is different. This is the beginning of something and being disappointed it time and time again and not only in politics, obviously. But but in. Every career. So so to see this happen in politics is really exciting. The the challenge now is to not judge women by different standard. You know, it's interesting. I I got a note kind of an angry note from a friend of mine, very very powerful. Women in business who said how can you call it? The year of the woman when you know, two women senators were defeated, but the fact is part of becoming of integrating women into the political presses that they're going to win and they're also going to lose. And there were obviously there's an Bill they'll be another additional woman Senator who come in this year because of what happened in Arizona, Nevada woman got elected. But would the the more? It becomes not unique. I think is is is progress, but the country the thing about these women candidates who came in so many of them were first time candidates first time politicians and the military a lot of them. Yeah. Yeah. They had credential. This Abigail span burger from the CIA. A right. No, it it was. I have to tell you. I've been brooding about the fact that I think in our own little panel last night. There was a rush to sort of kind of a rush to judgment about. What was going to happen last night? It turned out to be pretty inspiring knife. From the standpoint of hundred fourteen million people voted the these women and not just these women, but all over the country these stories of people who stepped up and said, you know, what I'm not going to sit on the couch. I'm going to get involved. I think an even these people who lost, you know, better Rourke was a inspiring story back. He will be and maybe sooner than we think there's an awful lot of pressure on him to to to take his act national Donald Trump today in this in this press conference tried to make it seem as if he was just fine with the Democrats take. Back the house. We had a, yeah, he tried to make it sound that way. But then he, but then he made it clear he wasn't fine. He wasn't fine with it doesn't want them exercising their oversight. Right. And he threatened to retaliate against them. And of course, now Jeff Sessions resigning or being fired. Actually, they're going to investigate it. So I thought Ron clean my old White House colleague wrote a good column in the post today in which he said, he thought Democrats should spend the first hundred days working on legislation to address some of these concerns about healthcare and other issues that their constituents voted. For them to deal with and I agree with that. But they may be forced to to act more quickly. Because if it looks like and it does look like the president's doing an end run. Well, Nancy Pelosi was very clear. I mean, you know, immediately, Donald Trump said, I effectively I can't work with you. If you decide to do your job, which is to oversight and Nancy Pelosi said, whatever we do. We'll do it the right way and in our own time shortly organized, and it's going to be you know, it's going to be within the within the rules. And so I I think Ron is. Right. And I think in Pelosi pointed out, look there are things maybe we can work together on like pre existing conditions, for example, pharmaceuticals drug prices infrastructure, get get those things done because their constituents care about that about drug prices, but you can walk and chew gum at the. Same time. Yes. I don't think Donald Trump can because he he he can't compartmentalize. And so and we saw that today. So I think that she will try and do it. But there's no doubt my mind at some point. It's just going to collapse. As long as we're on the subject would what of Pelosi, you know, her very very well. I know her, well, you know, I there is this conundrum for some of these new members because they campaigned and said they weren't going to vote for her. And now they're here. Right. And it's it no one knows who you voted for. Well, you know, the old mole Udal, I wanna thank this six the hundred twenty people who committed to vote for me in the sixty who actually. Yeah. But I mean, that's true. But I think a lot of them pledge not to vote for on the floor of that. I mean, tell me about her as a I look I think Nancy Pelosi and David, you know, this better than I do because you you went through the healthcare war without Nancy Pelosi wouldn't happen. Right. Wouldn't happen. Right. So she is an amazing vote counter. She knows how to get people together. She understands she's transitional she's seventy eight years old. She gets it. But wouldn't you want her on your side if at running if you've gotta bring generations together and try and get legislation through at least one or two, you know, how it was with health care. She was your guide dog, right? Listen, her determine the the president's determination was matched only by hers. And there was a period of time after Ted Kennedy died and after Democrats lost a special election in Massachusetts. When it looked like healthcare health reform was was was dead. And and she and the president and Harry Reid quietly mapped out a strategy to revive it and pass it, and and and she had to work very very hard to get her caucus to to go along with it because they they had to accept a Senate Bill that they didn't want because the Senate was not gonna vote again on this. And it was it was I have no, listen, there's no one within those four walls better than her at this process. And she knows that too. And I, but it's the outward facing piece that these, and that's it's it's it's going to be interesting to watch how she navigates us and how the caucus navigates this Trump deals with her because he doesn't deal with women very easily. So we'll we'll see how that goes. Yeah. Well, Rahm Emanuel always says. About Pelosi people need to remember. She's not a Pelosi. She's Adela, Sandra. She's the son of a Baltimore mayor and ward boss, and I I asked her on my pockets on this podcast. Once how what did you learn from growing up with dentures I learned how to count and and she she knows how to count does. She does and had a service the needs of all of her members and understanding what they yeah, I see I see the need for generational change there. I see the need. I see the problems of the members. But they're gonna have a hard time finding someone who's the natural replacement. Right. There isn't any was going to be Joe Crowley, and he's gone gone.

Yes. Study the British press that must have been an experience that that may have pre prepared you for today's. Yeah. I got a Watson fellowship for before that I saw when I graduated I got this fellowship, and it was sixty five hundred dollars. If you were single and eight thousand dollars if you were married so I called my now husband and proposed. And I said well come on over what we're gonna get married. Let's go to London together. So he knows what he's worth, right? And then so we so well in today's dollars today's dollars. So we went to so we lived in. We lived in London for year. And it was great. He was working at the time in Buffalo's. So we had to make choice between the buffalo. Courier express and living in London for you. That was tough as good. He had made the decision, right? Right. And then I and then I came back, and I had worked at the Washington star the now defunct evening newspaper, which legendary I worked for them during my summers in college. I worked for the legendary Jack Germond. Yes hired. Me we should explain because they're people won't know. Jack, Germond was a legend in political journalism in this country. I mean, there was a core. The boys on the bus from from the that famous book in nineteen seventy two but through a bunch of reporters who just travel the country knocking on doors, and maybe the doors of a few saloons, maybe and and but really had a sense of what was going on. You know, David broder was one of them from the Washington Post, and I David Maraniss one of his proteges told me that he was sitting in a lunch room after one of these after presidential election in at the post with with Dan Balz and David broder and broder serve at nowhere said it was like the February after the inauguration of the. President broder said don't you just feel like going up to New Hampshire and knocking on some doors? What? But that's that was this that and you know, what they're they're kind of journalism harder to practice today. Well, it is. And that's you know, that was my introduction, you know, to covering politics because Germont hired me and took a shot on this kid, and he Mary McGrory was it was a columnist at the Washington star. And she would travel with us and Germond was just amazing to work with him. Because he would it was at a time when you covered politics when you went down to the bar at night and the candidate would actually come down and have a drink with you. Yes. And there was such a thing as off the record, right, which does not exist anymore. Right. Yeah. There are no more relationships and Germont was sort of a master at that. And the candidates what son me is this young baby. Reporter was the candidate like whether it was Mondale or whoever it was would ask your mind. What he was hearing. And was he doing okay? And and they would they would have conversations not only about policy, but about what was going on the road. And it was so it was it was it was amazing to learn from somebody likes your Mont who who knew the macro politics. But also the micro politics. And there weren't a lot of us women at that time. I mean now, I would say political journalism is over half female if I had to go, but there weren't a lot right? And for Jack to sort of open the door to a bunch of us, Maureen Dowd. Yes. Is your fellow at the Washington Dr? Yeah. And so we we were able to learn from these guys, and they were they were terrific to us. They just couldn't have been better and more welcoming. And so it was an ex these experiences kinda got me into political reporting. When I went to the Washington star. They asked me if I wanted to cover education, which was traditionally where. Yeah. L reporters were shuttled off to right. Would you like to cover education? And I said not no not really. And they said, well, that's how you get your start. So instead, I covered said I don't really want to cover education. They said, well, the only place we can put you is in Prince George's county covering the county politics. I said great I'll go there. So I drove forty five minutes every day in a car a little old car provided by the Washington star that broke down, and then I covered that. And then I cover the Annapolis legislature. And so I got into politics kind of through the the back door until remind kind of brought me on the more national seed you. Part of that whole idea of shuttling off the young female reporter to educate beat was fact that these were male preserves these I mean, I grew up in a newsroom at a, you know, about the same time. And so you must have you mean, we're in the metoo urine. Now, the things that the things that that are now. I think properly unacceptable pretty commonplace. Yeah. They were. And I, and you know, I just was chatting with a bunch of women my age about looking back on what we kind of put up with. And it it's interesting because you know, I'm lucky enough never to have been harassed in the way that so many of these women were, but you know, we all had experiences like my first boss whom I loved and it was now gone. You know, once told me after I had been at the star for he was a metro editor after I'd been at the store for while. You know, I only hired you because I thought you had good legs. But you turned out to be okay. And I came home that night. And I said to my husband, but whatever I just we didn't. I just knew that that was sort of the way it was and looking back. There's a lot of stuff we shouldn't have put up with. But we didn't have numbers we didn't have confidence in in the ways that women do now when I speak with my younger colleagues they much more confident than I was as a young woman because they're they're more them around. And we didn't have as many women to go to and we didn't have role models or mentors that was unheard of. And so it was just a very very different environment. And so I'm so glad that women now can talk to each other about things that we never did before. I. Conversation who would Judy Woodruff about her experiences being the weathergirl on local TV on her way up to becoming one of the first female White House correspondence? And you forget, you know, right. Totally what those what those days what those days were like. We you also do you must have done sort of like, we all did the the casual police stuff and covered covered. Cops five AM went to a went to a scene of a crime. And almost had to go out and throw up in the hallway. I'll never and the cops were very nice to me. But yeah, I did it. I did the copy I so it was it was journalism at newspapers is, you know, very well as an apprentice. Yes. Yeah. And you want to experience it all. And I'm sad that we're so segmented now in even in our digital world people cover certain things, so but but the way we grew up covering covering writing for newspaper was you did all kinds of things. I mean, my editor of the Washington store. Jim bellows, legendary legendary wonderful started a daily soap opera in the newspaper. And I was he picked me as one. Of the writers. We have seven writers it became a book called federal triangle, not even remaindered anymore. And we wrote it under a pseudonym called hardy mums one of the writers was Diana McClelland who used right the ear. Do you? Remember that Maureen was so we, and we segmented it, and we did it anonymously, and it was hilarious. And he had this great idea. So we did that and we so we did a little bit of everything. And it was just a great experience to be able to do that. Not just come in and say, I'm gonna you know, I when I came to the Tribune is right out of college. I knew a lot about politics than I had covered it for a local newspaper there. And my city editor was this guy named Bernie judge still around great mentor. And he said, you know, you know, everything about politics of the city prime more than anybody. I have. But you don't have to be a reporter you're going on nights. And I it was the greatest educate. That could ever have an I saw part of life that I never was exposed to. And you know, it did make me a better report. It was it was a great experience of you went onto Newsweek the star folded does star. Yes. Well, yes. And I went will the star was bought by time magazine, and Jim Bilas was fired. And I didn't like that very much. So Joe Albritton was the owner. And I cried to him in the newsroom, see, how can you fire Jim Bill, which is probably not a great move. But and I did go to I did go to Newsweek to legendary. Mel elfin hired me hired me at Newsweek, and we had an amazing bureau. I mean that was the the Newsweek bureau and the and the craft of writing for news magazine and reporting for a news magazine was an education in itself because you it. It was a luxury because you actually had week right to do a story. Imagine shes. Yeah. I think that that there is there's a great advantage to that. And then, but there's you know, I always needed the deadline to write motivate me we used to write Thursday nights. And then it would get sent up to New York. And then they would re write it. And then, but but it was you could have a week of reporting which was so great at looking back on it. What a luxury that was it's one of the things that the new modern media environment doesn't permit and you wonder about the qual-. I mean, people do amazing work under difficult circumstances in deadlines, but you wonder what I don't wonder I know that something's been lost. Because we've lost strata of editors who used to read copy and ask the right questions and we've lost the time for reflection, and you know, the. Premium is on speed get it online and getting an this the other thing, which which is getting to know your sources, I mean, I was their chief congressional correspondent. And I would spend my weeks in the in the lobbies of the chambers. Pulling members off the floor to talk to them not on the phone not by taxed, but one on one person to person, and I still believe there is nothing that replaces that and you know, how we all do this by shorthand. I'm texting sources right all the time, right? But there's not that connection that you had when you were sitting in the speakers lobby every day and actually talking to them, and that's how I got to know Dick Cheney so well when he was head of the House Republican conference he was the ideas man, which his daughters now running for that job. And he was a different man when he was in the when he was in the house, I might add. But but members members like to do that. And it was such a great experience, and there's no big vivid figures. Including the speaker was tip O'Neill, probably when he was and he was you know, he had a daily presser in his little office. And we'd all go in every day at noon and tip would speak to the press every single day, and he'd make a lot of mistakes. He threw in the towel once on the tax Bill that Ronald Reagan wanted if you'll recall, and, but I also remember speaking of being a woman when I was pregnant he'd come in everyday and Pat my belly, and then he'd go, and then you sit down at his desk, and he'd say how you doing, you know, and he was so wonderful. I wouldn't have thought twice about that. Right. But he was a very available speaker. Yeah. And all that all that's gone. All that all that is completely. You went to US news and World Report. I think that's where I probably I. Came across you. And you spent another ten eleven years, they I forget how many semi my editors from Newsweek ended up running US news. And and David Gergen hired me actually at US news. I between his stints and. Turkoman Stinson government bought US bought US news. And my I had a couple of editors from Newsweek win over there. And and David Gergen went over there. And they hired me there. And it was it was great. It was wonderful place to work. And then when Gergen went to the White House, I took over his column at in the magazine. So we were underdog, but we did we did pretty well. And now to think that there were three newsmagazines is stunning. It used to I don't know about for you. But it used to be that. I couldn't get through a Sunday night or Monday without looking at the covers of three megabytes, right? That doesn't exist anymore for me. Right. No. No. Well, it's kind of an acronym is giving the modern media template. And then, and then you you you moved over to television or in March as part of that part time, so as yeah. As part of a tra- in that was a long transition into fulltime. But talk to me about making that transition from print to TV. So I think what what happened is that I was lucky enough that that CBS was trying to bring more women onboard needed contributors. And so I went on face the nation a couple of times and Bob Schieffer was nice enough. Eventually, I became sort of his sidekick on face the nation for about five or six years, and and a contributor to CBS evening news, sometimes standing out on the porch of the hay Adams with Dan rather during Lewinsky, which was awfully frightening to me. I was so intimidated by Dan. And so I, and I have always thought that it's turned out really strangely. Because I always thought as I h well print will always be there and TV goes away. But it's turned out just the. Opposite because print is always there. I mean, I can write for CNN dot com anytime I want I do, but I never an -ticipant it'd that that the print outlets, and now there's digital obviously, but the traditional print outlets that I thought would always be there for me when away no US news is a magazine, but his bits a lot about guides. And and Newsweek is very different and newspapers are in trouble and everything else is booming and has reporting differ here. Not just here. Well, I wanna talk about CNN just reporting as a as a journalist when you reporting for TV and you have to think about what images and when you're well. So there's there's different they're two different things because I do a lot of long form for for CNN. So there's there's a lot of different ways when you're just reporting for on air your reporting for the next headline. You're you're on your phone while you're sitting on the set, we all do it. When you're when you're writing a documentary, or when you're writing a ten minute piece your thinking about what your pictures are going to be which is very different. Which is you know, how can I we've this story given what I given the pictures that I have which I never had to think of as a as a print reporter. I also think in many ways when you do interviews, and you know, this yourself when you do an interview for print is very different for when you do an interview for television. Yeah. And because when you do an interview for television, you're thinking of the next question. How do I make this the architecture of this interview work where there's a beginning middle and an end, and when you're doing it for print, it doesn't really matter. And so it's a very different interviewing is completely different skill for television than it is for print, and I think more difficult, I think much more difficult because as you know, he's very difficult to get people to be more honest. When the cameras on them. It is. Yeah. No. It's it's hard. Yeah. In washington. The story often ends when congress passes a law for the impact. That's where the story begins. The impact is a podcast from box that focuses on the human consequences of policy-making hosted by Sarah cliff. The first season of the impact examined the way healthcare policy impacts people across the country for second season. The impact is looking at the most interesting policy experiments happening across the United States from housing education to family leave. The impact is looking at cities and states as laboratories of democracy wrestling with serious problems and experimenting with both solutions. They're following the policymakers who design these experiments, and the people whose lives have been changed by them. Check out the impact by vox right now on apple podcasts or wherever you're listening. And you've been at CNN now for since two thousand seven talk to me about the evolution of cable news for better and worse are well. First of all, let me say something CNN is the most dynamic place I've ever worked. Just look at the day today or yesterday we had an election yesterday today. Jeff Sessions is out and CNN has to be on it every minute. So it's it's a very demanding parent. It's very demanding. And is very labor intensive more than a network where you have twenty two minutes in the evening morning show. You know, CNN is a show twenty four seven. And so it demands were stamina in many ways as a reporter it demands you to have a greater depth of sourcing because anything happens, for example, I've been on the Russia reporting team, and that's been great because I've had to develop different kinds of sources. And stretch my muscles in different ways. I'm not an intelligence report. But who knows? Yeah. I mean, it's been it's been an amazing experience. Let's stop right there for a second. Because and get back to the the story of the moment having covered this investigation from the beginning. What happens now, do you think? Well, I don't think it's going to be over tomorrow. The way a lot of people do, but I think right now it's in jeopardy. I think the Muller investigation is in jeopardy how far along do you think he is very far? I think he has probably written a report. I think he is in the goes, I know he's into Goshi ations with the presence attorneys. They exchanged written answers to questions about collusion. But I think it's still an open question about whether they might want to subpoena the president if he doesn't want to testify. In person. And I think that is still being negotiated. And I don't know if that set Donald Trump off, I have no, you know, I have no idea. I think I think Muller has formed a lot of stuff out to the southern district of New York, and to other places that he cannot think he's been planning for this exigency. Yes. It would it would shock me. If he didn't have a plan knowing that Jeff Sessions was going to be fired. I think the big question now is what happens rod Rosenstein, and because rod Rosenstein, who is Jeff Sessions number two is in charge of the Muller investigation. So if Muller were to want to subpoena, the president or issue his report, it has to go to rod Rosenstein and get approved, but no longer because the attorney general won't be recused. Well, that's that's right. And rod Rosenstein, no longer has thority over Muller. This happened in our ago. So does rod Rosenstein, stay does. He what what happens? What happens or have has the entire top? At the Justice department been decapitated. I don't think we this is just unraveling in real time do sessions and Rosenstein. No are they free agents. You think to testify before congress? I don't have the president Vokic executive prove. Well, I don't know the I really don't know the answer to that. Let's see what happens with Rosenstein. So all the interviews that have been done with Muller. The White House has not invoked privilege on conversations with people who work in the White House, including the White House counsel. But they reserve the right to invoke it later. So you could have Muller. This is going to be very big issue. And it could be a bit of a crisis. Write a report. And you could have the Justice department redact most of it because the White House says its privileged and then have a half report go to Capitol Hill, which will create havoc particularly now with a democratic house. And there there would be a fight over that. There would be a fight over privilege at it could go to the supreme court. I mean, I just envision this potentially happening. So with all now, we don't know what's happening Rosenstein, we don't know, you know, whether Whitaker's gonna what's going to happen a ham. I mean, he's acting and you can do that under federal vacancies act for two hundred days. But it's only temporary seems to me Muller had to know something like this could happen. He's there too smart. But I don't know what his plan B is. I just I don't know you must know him though. I know you know, what I did a ten minute piece on him. And he speaks to nobody. So. I have interviewed a lot of people who know him really, well, but I can't say that I know him other than by his reputation, and by the testimony of people who worked with him for years, tell very funny stories about him, which in my favorite of which is that we got a couple of them one is he called Eric Holder at one time and he asked for demotion right because he wanted to trial. He wanted to get back on he wanted to get back on the beat. Yeah. Yeah. And and and then somebody who worked with him in private practice. You know, he never stayed in private practice for very long because this person said to me, you know, he'd sit down with his white collar client, and the client would tell them the story, and then Muller would say well sounds like you're guilty, you plead and that didn't go over to. Well. So he's always he's always preferred to stay in government. I mean, he's a real prosecutor. I heard one from from. Someone who's brother worked for him when he was US attorney, and he would call a meeting at six in the morning, call his senior staff together, and he'd always start the meeting by saying what have you done for your country today? Really that's six in the morning. He only wears white button down shirts. And I was told when he had a Christmas party at his house, which was called for six to nine at nine o'clock. He started flipping the lights on. People with time to leave. He's a I mean, I had a couple of encounters with them not just sitting in a room when he was briefing, the president on one thing or another and he was right from central casting. And I said in say a word because he scared the hell out of. Yeah. I could see that. I could everybody who works for him says, they call him the boss when you go into the boss, it's all business, and he s you fifty questions he makes a decision and then. There's the next thing. There's no kibitzing. There's nothing I do think don't you that the election of democratic house this week that it complicates things for Trump because they're not going to be eager to see Muller. Silenced Kerr tales stymied in his in his in his work. No. And I think you know, Chuck Schumer today, that's the Senate side. But they're you know, they'd like to pass legislation that guarantees that he can keep his job. But whether you could do that in a lame duck or how that would occur is not is not quite clear. There have been I should point out. Lots of Republicans last year who said firing Muller would be the red line. And of course, he hasn't fired Muller. He's fired sessions, but whether Republicans now still believe that or care about it, and you know Muller in our exit polls last night. Muller's popularity was underwater. And I'm sure Donald Trump looked at that. It was forty six disapproved to forty-one approve. Yeah. And yeah, I Trump looked at it. I don't think mother probably is not at all not about it. So what about the election? And what is how do you interpret the results? I I mentioned earlier there was you know, that really part of the Ning was interpreted as dark from a democratic standpoint because of some of the early defeats. But the fact is that Democrats did take the house one in some house seats unsuspected places, South Carolina and two seats in Houston and Dallas. Yeah. Suburban areas surrounding Houston and Dallas so elected six governors ousted. Scott Walker kansin. I think it was look, I look I I don't know. Second home state Senator John tesla despite the president's best efforts manage to win reelection. Right. Look, I think that it's a huge deal. The Democrats took the house, and and I don't know if you would use this David, you know, more about these things than I do. But I think we're seeing the beginning of a real realignment in American politics, and that the president can go back to the red states all he wants, and he's got his base etcetera. But if you're gonna grow that party beyond Trumpism, you can't lose women sixty forty you can't lose independence by twelve points. You're just can't he won independence by four points in two thousand sixteen. I think that's a a big story and the and the people the Democrats brought in were not the sort of Republicans like to say, it's the wild eyed aggressives, these were George H W Bush moderate, moderate Republicans now Democrats. They brought in. I mean, these were not these are not raging liberals that they brought into the house of representatives. These are suburban moderate Republican districts. So when you talk about a realignment, and the Democratic Party looks very different. I mean, it's it's it's white suburban. Well, educated wealthier, plus minorities. I mean, white plus minorities who are largely democratic and the Republican party is shriveling into this sort of older demographic. And eventually, you know, you can put off the inevitable only for certain amount of time. But they've gotta find they've gotta find new people. Right. And so what last night showed me is. Yes, Donald Trump can win in the places he won in two thousand sixteen and do very well. Maybe maybe. But when you. He took the Republicans to quite a beating in Pennsylvania in Michigan lost Walker in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, better better in in Ohio votes. Sherrod Brown one reelection there. Those were really the states that I mean, along with Florida that delivered the presidency to Donald Trump shrinking little even in the even in the sort of what he those three states you were talking about. They're not guaranteed, and he does have a great deal of blue-collar support. I think Democrats have to find a way to get that back which they because Donald Trump has done very well blue-collar. Well, I think you know, it seems to me, and I said this at the time out private sitting right next to you. When I said at that Democrats made a mistake in two thousand sixteen by sending this very pronounced message that you know, we've got women we've got young yet, we've got minorities. So we don't really need the rest of you. And that's why the deplorables thing Resnick so poorly out there. And if you tell people they're not needed. They're not part of something. They're going to believe you exactly and it made Donald Trump's mission or is his his strategy easier. But it's hard to think of a president and you worked for one. And he who who wouldn't after your lectured, go out and try and expand rather than tracked. That's the that's generally the strategy. Generally, the strategy is to tell people who didn't vote for you. Here's why you should have voted for me. And I'm for you too. Because I'm the president of everyone and Donald Trump just has never done that. And he will only went to places during the campaign where he would get full edge relation and knew that he can make a difference and then handed the house to pull right and then blamed him. So I think that's who Donald Trump is. And and then today, he shamed. All these people by name who didn't ask him to Cam. Pain for him in. And he sort of said, I don't know my happy that they lost. I don't know my happy. My sad. Republicans. Yeah. What do do you? Do you talk to him Trump? No, it's hard for anybody CNN to speak with the president. Let me ask you about that. Because you know, when I was in the White House CNN was the place that we wanted to be because CNN had such a broad reach. It wasn't just. People who liked Obama wasn't just people who hated Obama. But there were people who dependents dependent. And so on it seems as if the president's mission has been too partisan is, you know, his relationship with CNN. So as to as to sideline it or try to as a, and I know we both work for this Senate. So I, but this clinical question that that's a that's a challenge because I know there are a lot of people who who are very assiduous about what they do you among them for whom this is an unsuspecting unexpected place to be it's it's really unusual to be called the enemy of the people and fake news. And and. You know, when we started out this campaign because our boss Jeff Zucker had a pre existing relationship with with Donald Trump because he after all put him in the apprentice made him a star. So they had a fine relationship. It was fine. And in fact, I believe thinking back on it. You may remember this to that CNN calendar. A lot of criticism for running to many of Trump's oh without question live. Why are you doing that? And I'd hear from the Bush campaign. Mar you're giving him all this free media. And they had a point. They actually had a point. I think we probably did run too much of Donald Trump live, but Donald Trump live was captivating. It was good television. As he knows. That's the thing. You know that? There are, you know, elite opinions of Dow Trump that sort of reduce him to kind of cartoon character. He helps sometimes on that. But it it minimizes who he I mean, he has a real genius for the modern media environment. And understanding it understanding the symbiotic relationship between him and the news media. And and and you know, you saw today now whether it was his intent or not I don't know what you whether wanted to advance the story whether he just stepped on it. But he knows that at any moment, he can send the news cycles skittering off into another direction. And that all he has to do is be outrageous enough. Yeah. Any any is? And that's why our weeks or so crazy. I mean, we you can barely. Remember what happened on Monday on Friday? And and the look politicians. It's it's as old as the ages attack the media. I don't know one president who loved the media all the question. Right. Yeah. Of course. And with good reason a lot of the time. But this was set up that way, wasn't it. I mean, that's why. That's why the founding fathers wanted a job. It's our job to ask tough questions. And today it is press conference. The president was not only snippy with us and critical, but he actually accused African American reporter of asking a racist question. And he he was dismissive and talked about, you know, everything is the press is full it works. I mean, attacking the media works, and it's his tried and true. And if he doesn't have any other particular enemy, this is good as anything to us who told he told I think it was Leslie Stahl nut in this interview. Was she was it. She who. Yes. He she. He told her I want to want to make sure that people that when you write bad stuff about me people dismiss it. And so that's why I I go after the media the media, but it's hard when he goes after the media, and he says, I didn't say that. And. On tape. You know, that's that's a little bit difficult. The relationship with CNN is now very difficult, and you know, after the pipe bombs, and I guess three of them were sent to to to contributors to CNN in Atlanta. I think that it didn't get any better. And I think that I've never worked anywhere that was having an open discussion with the president discussion isn't quotes discussion with the president about our role as a free and independent press as we are now. And so we're under attack every day. And you just you just do your job. There's just nothing else. You can do it does strain relationships with people who work at the White House. Although I must say a lot of people who have revolved in and out of the White House who I talked to on a regular basis understand what's going on. And it doesn't stop them from. Remaining sources of mine. The president complains about all these fake news in these fake sources. And of course, you know, he's he there are a lot of people that he knows who were talking, and he talks to the press, you know, he'll call up Maggie Haberman or he'll. Yeah. And he'll say, I don't know her well or does. So it's he plays that game too. He's done it his whole life. He used to pose as his own PR guy. John miller. Yeah. John barren. And and he started out, you know, doing really well with the press with New York tabloids. He was the star of New York. And so I think now this is kind of a whole different ball game for him. And he doesn't like any criticism period when you're president. If you're not criticized you're not doing anything. What do you think? The what do you think this election mean meant relative to two thousand twenty? Well, look, I think as you pointed out the Donald Trump. I mean, the fact that Florida is remains for him. Maybe right. Yes is important. But Michigan Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania, big states for him may not be available to him. And I think he thinks of everything in terms of twenty twenty. So I do think it has impact. The one thing we. Haven't talked about which is okay. The governors are so important because you need a governor on your side. If you're running for president, right? They have the infrastructure and then redistricting which is huge. And you you see the state legislatures in the Obama years. I think thousand state legislative seats were lost. I'm not sure all of them were made up last night. But I think a lot of them were seven legislative chambers that switch right from Republicans. So I think that is hugely we've usually underplayed it because it's only day one. But that's going to have an impact for decades. So I think that you don't see it right in front of your eyes right now, but it will make it will make a very very big difference. And that's good for the Democrats. So I think that it was a usually consequential election usually consequential I think emotionally what we heard from some of our panelists last night like van Jones was upset. About Stacey Abrams or Guillem. It was sort of these were the emotional stars of the cycle. And if they didn't win that that that van called at heartbreaking, I think, but the others, but the, but the real story is that the Democrats made amazing headway here and control the house. And now have something to say about the agenda. No, which they did not before yet. Not only things to say about the agenda. But also to block check things that that. Like, the repeal of the Affordable Care checks and balances in. I mean, they can do their job of oversight. That's their job. And so they can start asking questions about what happened in the Puerto Rico hurricane. What what what was behind the policy of separating children from their parents right at the border. These questions can be asked about what's going on at the EPA or and those things the American public want answers to that. What's who is who is lobbying the EPA who's got the top jobs there. What are these revolving doors were hearing about that? So I I industry working with environmental protection and having too much influence. So I think the Democrats will do that. I think there's a dangerous, you know, over doing. Exactly, yeah. We'll see. So I'm away out. I gotta ask you where do you think we come out on this? When someday down Trump will not be president of the United States. He he he will have been an oversized presence, you know, for better worst, depending on your point of view. But in our politics, how will our politics have been changed in our country. How will it have been changed as a result of this epic? It's you know, I I don't know the answer. I'm not trying to dodge question. But I really don't know the answer that I like to think that the pendulum in American politics wings, and that after and after Donald Trump is just it's just like you got Jimmy Carter, you know, after a Donald Trump. You may get somebody who is the opposite. You know after Pt Barnum, maybe you get to somewhere somewhere more in the middle because the public is tired exhausted exhausted by it and try. Why not to leave the people out that the Democrats the deplore the so called that Hillary's mistake. Try not to leave so many people behind and that and that both parties will learn from it, but I can tell you now the Republican party is the Trump party. There is no other Republican party. And maybe they'll be a third party who knows? But, but but there is no other party. I when I did this documentary on Trump, and I can end with this. If you want that that I sat down with Ryan's Priebus who is in a chair, the RMC, and I asked him is before the convention, and I asked him, I said, okay. So is this the party of Trump, and he got Ryan says a very sweet person, and he doesn't get angry. He got really angry. It means. What do you mean is this a party of Trump? We're not the party of anyone person where the Republican party he'd answer the same way today. Exactly. And he got mad at me. And I said, well, he said, no, no, no, we're not the party of. Trump and today, it's the party of Trump. He owns it. He operates it. He believes he saved it in the Senate, and it's about him. And I don't know how long that can last. But that's what it is. Right now, we shall see. I look forward to sitting with you. Many many more interesting nights in the in the years to come to tell everyone. I supply David Axelrod with his twizzlers every election night. And we both by the end of election nights were sick to our stomachs, but the twizzlers cherry.

At the same time while producing results in very very measurable ways. Now I have to share with you I. Got these two stories from a buddy of mine who I admire greatly his name is Cole Shaffer. And I think he's the new up and coming og if If you'll allow me that. He's a legendary copywriter and He's done a bunch of work for us. He wrote LOCKHEAD DOT COM and every once in a while, he writes a clever email or two for us and I think he's amazing.

WanNa tell you call coming up during the pods dorm, we do an extraordinary episode where he shares some inside secrets on how to become a legendary writer and I'll tell you he taught me. Some some new tricks. Some really breakthrough eye-opening ideas for writing, so pay attention to that and go to honey copy, dot, com and subscribed to his newsletters all right here. The stories fender. As you probably know, fender is a legendary guitar company. They make guitars and amps and other various musical equipments and Sophie equipments. It's not a word lock had and so forth, and if you're watching a video, you could see I. Love Guitars got guitars hanging around me now. Truth be told I'm more of a Gibson Guy, but hard not to love fender. No matter what anyway, so here's the. Low Do category, leaders do well one of the main things they do is they expand the category potential over time? And in the case, guitars and amps, if you on a cell guitars amps. Need you need to manufacture guitar players because there ain't no guitar buying if there ain't no guitar players, so what fenders done over time is they transform themselves from a hardware company into a software company, and in so doing. They built their own data flywheel. And Checkout Episode Twenty Four of Lockhead on marketing on building data fly wheels with Eddie Yoon. There's a straight line correlation between companies who used data strategically to build relationships drive revenue and gain insight and action about what's going on in their category, and those that don't episode twenty four. Okay, so back defender, so hardware company set up this software platform called fender play designed to teach people to play guitar so that there be more guitar players to buy guitars. All right here's what happens. See Nineteen hits boom in February by March plus or minus vendors, retail business partners like Guitar Center, a lot of local guitar shops, and so forth music places. Those businesses are now made. So night fenders distribution channel is ambushed, is Jack and made illegal. So what do you do if you're fender? Here's what they did. They took their. Digital Platform for teaching people to play Guitar Fender play and they announced they were giving away a fender play for three months for free during the pandemic. Once they announced that they got over half of our, they got almost half a million new subscriptions and therefore email addresses overnight, which contributes to their data flywheel. Now half a million people are learning to play guitar during the pandemic. And if you're learning to play guitar? Maybe, you need a new guitar, or maybe you'd like a new guitar, so they are expanding their category potential. And the free three months, some percentage of those folks are more than likely to sign up for fender. Play which. Ninety Bucks. So at the end they take a terrible situation. And by being thoughtfully, aggressive and radically generous, they give something away. Free contributes to their data flywheel that helps make new guitar players to expand their category potential, and but a bank, but a boom. They're positioning themselves for long-term legendary success. Love it. Here's another story call shaffer me. This is back in two thousand nine imagine your of the CEO or the CMO of Colgate. And you're trying to get kids to brush their teeth. What's the opposite of what most people would do well? Give them ice cream. What colgate did colgate partnered with young and Rubicam? The famous advertising agency to come up with putting. Imagine the stick that I scream. Ice Cream is on what the? BLANKING ON WHAT ICE-CREAM-ON-A-STICK! Whatever that's called so imagine instead of a generic stick inside. It's a stick. That looks a lot like a toothbrush. it's in the shape of a toothbrush. That's a wooden ice cream. Stick in the shape of toothbrush would with a copy on it that says don't forget and colgate started handing out ice cream ice cream bars to kids. Now these are both I, think legendary examples of simple ideas that are very thoughtfully aggressive and radically generous as time. So how might that apply to Your Business? Think small think simple, think cheap, sometimes not having much about a budget drives creativity and ask yourself what is an insanely simple, cheap, thoughtfully aggressive, radically generous idea that we could pull off fast and then go do that.

Does he oh of Salesforce says homelessness is his problem from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. In San Francisco next week voters will decide whether the city's largest companies most of them tech companies should pay tax that will raise money to help homeless. Families. Other cities have tried similar efforts voters in Seattle recently overturned attacks on large employers that would have funded affordable housing efforts. This city is biggest tech employer their Amazon strongly objected. But in San Francisco, the city's biggest tech employer is four the measure, Mark Benny off is the co CEO of Salesforce. And yes, the guy who just bought time magazine, he's stumping for the ballot measure called proposition c he said Salesforce recently held its annual dream force conference downtown and attendees from all over the world were horrified. I could tell you how many phone calls and emails and stories have had from people who had adverse interactions with homeless terrible situations with the cleanliness of our streets, including encountering human feces and other terrible things. And you just have to ask yourself. What has happened to our great city here? And that's why I'm supporting proposition c you know, in some ways a business tax in San Francisco is really attacks on the tech industry, which has come under fire for all kinds of problems, including the housing crisis and economic inequality. Do you think that's fair should this industry shoulder the blame for the homelessness crisis and other social problems in San Francisco or anywhere else? Well, I think you know, Salesforce is the city's largest employer, and we are also the largest company in San Francisco, we're doing just fine. Our companies worth about one hundred billion dollars other companies here at them all up its hundreds of billions of dollars and all of this. Well, it has been built on the back of our city. And the question is are you giving back to the city now in a New York Times op-ed, you argued that business half's to have a purpose beyond prophets. And that that can be good for business to the counter argument that you quoted was Milton Friedman saying that. Who get in on social issues can undermine the basis of a free society considering that we've seen a lot of CEOs across tech another industries get more involved in policy and CEO's like you and Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg increasingly control methods of communication in the media. Can you see an argument for Friedman side, the idea of undermining the basis of a free society or unintended consequences at a minimum today? I could tell you that especially here in San Francisco, you cannot separate business from our city. You know, you can't tell me that this homeless problem is not my problem is the city's largest employer. It's my employees who don't feel safe going to our transit station. It's our customers. You don't feel safe coming to our conferences? So is this homeless situation somehow separate from my business? No the business of business is about the whole world. Mark Benny off is the founder chairman and co. CEO of Salesforce. Now, plenty of tech companies don't support proposition c lift stripe NBC funds acquire capital oppose it square and Twitter. CEO Jack Dorsey has also said it's not the right solution. And now for some related links related to the tech industry and social issues. Some two hundred Google employees plan to walk out of work today to protest how the company is handled sexual misconduct allegations a report in the New York Times earlier this week said Google had paid Android creator. Andy Rubin ninety million dollars to leave the company even though he'd been sleeping with multiple Google staffers and allegedly sexually assaulted woman. He was dating and after that came out the company put out a memo and said it had fired forty eight people for sexual harassment in just two years. Another one actually happened yesterday. A director at Google x is out. He was named in that time story about inappropriate behavior. None of those forty eight people got paid for leaving though. And then Tuesday in courts, the head of Google X gave this long interview about how he thinks that gender inequality is quote the single. Biggest fixable problem humanity has and he said men need to listen and change. So that's nice. I mean props for cleaning house or whatever. Okay. Totally other topic. Check out the latest episode of the podcast. Why'd you push that button from the verge, which is about my favorite topic group chats because you know, how I think they're actually the future of social networking, and I think apple needs to release. I message for everyone and be an actual Facebook competitor for the podcast has the director of product management for Facebook messenger. And as it turns out, according to a story in wired, Mark Zuckerberg said during Facebook's financial results, call Tuesday that the news feed will be less important and ephemeral stories and messenger, and what's up. We'll be more important. So the vision Facebook has pushed on us for ten years. A big huge comments full of people you barely know. Disagree with actually makes us feel bad about ourselves and gets boring really fast. And all we really wanted was a nice day place to talk to each other. And be friends. Glad to see that now. But, you know, props for cleaning house, or whatever I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is APN.
