You're Not Starting From Scratch - You're Starting From Experience
"I saw that great post on linked in a few days ago in a special shout out to Michelle Connor who shared the Post that I actually saw and I think it's an important message for a lot of people to hear right now. Because right now, obviously, a lot of people are in a situation where they've lost their jobs. They potentially are facing a loss of a career by need to now think about restarting, and there's this feeling of despair that they're starting from scratch this dining from zero. But if you've been working for five or ten or fifteen years, then you've got a whole wealth of experience to bring to that next position that next role. So you're not starting from zero. You're starting from experience you've got that experience lock experience work experience. Now admittedly, it's going to be about how you. Channel that experience how you utilize that experience in a new capacity and a big part of that might simply be how you repackage yourself. You need to repackage the way you position yourself because we tend to have a lot of our identity tied up in the career and the job that we have. You may now need to think about repackaging that for a new role in a new industry. But the important thing is that you're not starting from zero it's not like you're coming out of school with zero experience you've already been working. You've already got a lifetime in some cases of experience again, work experience life experience. That's actually a strong super super strong acid for your new company for Your New Korea. I'm a big fan of. The way that you perceive your current circumstances situation at how you handle that and deal with that will determine to a large extent how things play out for you. So instead of taking the perspective that you're starting from zero, you starting from scratch, take the perspective that you're actually starting from a point of experience and with that you actually I think have a pretty good stop on the next phase of your life.

White Nationalist vs. David C. Smalley
"Further ado join me in welcoming Gordon. Call? To The podcast Gordon thanks for joining me today men. Thank you for having me on. So you have a podcast, I can't pronounce it. I don't know why. To just sorry, go ahead. Yeah. Yeah. Tell you the name of myself? Yeah. Yeah. It's totally the name your podcast and and your your your reason for coming on today. So. I'm Gordon Call I'm the editor of American her dot Org. It's a blog website I host the podcast tune Americana which acting is you know the German word for attention right and then America Connor is a term that some people on. If you WANNA call what I am the right or the dissident right have used to refer to white Americans right It's based on the term for white South Africans Afrikaner. And the idea was to we needed a word to represent the unique white ethnicity of America, right because you know. I. My background I'm German and Irish right I'm a midwestern Mutt but I'm not German and I'm not Irish right. I if I went to either of those countries, I would not culturally fit in there. I am a unique. Example of my background and nation. But Our podcast acting Americana is kind of A. Talk Show I guess we go over different topics and news stories focused primarily on the Midwest and fly over country and we kind of examined them from a white nationalist or distant right pursue. Okay. So do you consider yourself a white supremacist? No. And it would probably depend on what your definition of white supremacist is I've a lot of times people throw that word around to me. What white supremacist connotes is this idea that you want white people to like rule over other races like I don't know like the antebellum south or something like to enslave black people or whatever. I have no interest in that quite frankly if I had my way, I would not live near anybody like I mean I have no desire to rule over other peoples I want to. But quite frankly, I want my people to have the right of self-determination and to be left alone. Okay. So in that in that situation, this is where. I think the the lines will be blurred is, let's say, let's say you had your way and let's say there is a section of America. Let's say thirteen states or fifteen states or whatever that is dedicated just a whites-only. When that became overpopulated and that white part of America wanted to. Expand. Its borders. What would happen I mean? You wouldn't just say well I respect that that's the line. That's the because we're segregated I'm not GonNa Cross it, and we wouldn't you try. Then at that point to take the land of people who weren't like you. I mean isn't that what's happening to Europe and America? Now I mean considering the huge population boom and Africa and the massive population and say China right white white people of European, descent and if you want to get into the what is white debate I'm not really interested in that everyone knows what a white person is. But white people make up like ten percent of the world's population. Total. And the only countries that are being flooded with immigrants of a different race are white countries. You don't see massive populations of Europeans going into say tenure, for example, that is viewed as colonization, which is viewed as an evil act by the left. But when it is done in white countries, it's viewed as progressive and diversity. Okay. So back to my point there's no. Okay. So if you want to ask like what like first of all this whole like ethno state thing I know that that was something that Richard Spencer brought up when he first came on the scene. Like. My thing is this. I whatever idea of an ethno state or whatever people have. You'RE NOT GONNA get that in the foreseeable future for one thing politicians don't even talk about white people in a positive light in America today. So the idea that you're going to have like a political platform of okay we're going to split the states up based on race is ridiculous because you know Donald trump the supposed-, White Supremacist Fascist Nazi president that we have or whatever. Right who all of his children are married to. Jews. Which you know somehow makes him a Nazi. I guess. Like even he the most he said about white people was believe early on in his campaign he mentioned the farm murders in South Africa and then I think like a few weeks ago on an interview he mentioned that white people are killed more often by police than black who which is statistically true obviously their arguments about per capita or whatever yeah which is which Is the entire point not something we could just brush off. I. Mean that is the entire point there. There are far more white people in the country which goes without saying that you know but the percentages are much higher if you're black for you to be shot. So that's why that's problematic is it states something that's a technical fact but missing the entire point of the movement. I mean I guess but I also like I gotta be honest there are tons and tons of political. Groups, NGOs advocacy organizations five Oh, one C. threes what have you dedicated to blacks and black interests just like there are plenty of them dedicated to Jews and Jewish interests. Or Indians right both like native American American Indians right and you know Hindu Indians Arabs what you there are no organizations at all that advocate for the interests of white. Americans.
Obama urges Americans to honor John Lewis' legacy by voting
"For the funeral of Congressman John Lewis rose to its feet with an up roar of applause during a eulogy from former President Barack Obama. Mr Obama talked about the selfless sacrifice of the civil rights leader and that the voting rights he fought for our under siege by President Trump, who's floating the idea of delaying the election. Joining us live to talk about CBS analyst Leonard Steinhorn. Great to have you, Leonard? Happy to be here so to other presidents were on hand. But it was poor former President Obama, who offered this impassioned defense of democratic ideals that he says are being threatened. He's been more outspoken, but not like this. Can you talk about it? Look essentially what President Obama was saying is, if we wanna honor John Lewis's legacy, truly honor it. We need to finish the work of John Lewis's lifetime. Which is to ensure voting rights, for all with no obstacles in anyone's way and in effect. What he did with his rhetoric is he entered the political fray not directly not through partisan attacks, but with clear and pointed assaults on those Particularly Republicans, who were doing exactly what John Lewis fought against all of his life, which is to undermine the voting rights of the American people, So he did it through lofty and impassioned rhetoric. But his message was clear. He was definitely part former president and part preacher today, talking about the protests as well, something that Louis energized in his day is a civil rights leader, nearly losing his life in the fight. Can you characterize what Mr Obama said, and its relevance at this moment in history? So, in essence, what President Obama did was draw a straight line from Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge from Bull Connor in Birmingham. ER, George Wallace. The black lives matter. And the civil rights struggles of today are voting rights struggles of today. So you know, he basically said Bull Connor may be gone, But today we witness with our own eyes, police officers. Kneeling on the next of black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But then, he said he worries about the federal government's sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. Clearly referencing what happened in Lafayette Square when President Trump wanted to go to the church and hold up his Bible. So he drew a straight line from John Lewis in the 19 sixties tow what's happening today, and clearly, that was a strong message that this next generation now has to take the torch. And continue on with the fight that John Lewis began when he was just Ah, young, a young man in 1960 CBS News political analyst Leonard Steinhorn Thanks so much for being here. Thanks Always. By the

Dallas Cowboys' Dak Prescott will play on franchise tag of $31.4M
"This was the biggest surprise I think I've said on this show. Eighty million times I thought this was going to get done We were recording this thirty seconds before the franchise tag deadline at like three, fifty, nine, twenty, five, as I'm saying this so you know. Knock on wood that it holds true, but Dak Prescott will officially going kirk cousins route as his long term extension with Dallas cowboys was left. negotiated a long term deal reports indicate that the sides broke off talks as early as march in never really hop back on the wagon the cowboys would like you to know and I wrote back in September that they were offering him more than one hundred million dollars in guarantees. Guarantees which depending on if it's a practical guarantees, are actual monetary guarantees would be an NFL record Dak Prescott would like you to know that they also insisted on an extra year of service for that privilege. It looked like he was. He was searching for more something along the lines of the Russell, Wilson, deal where it was more of a four year more compact thing, and then you can dip again, for your thirty Still Shocked I think he's a top five quarterback I thought Seth Wall Dirty Espn made a good point that if you had to round up, Fi, you know. Two or three quarterbacks that you were sure in five years, we're still going to be top five quarterbacks Dak. Prescott would certainly be one of them so I don't understand why this didn't get done I think it's a gigantic financial mistake. for the cowboys of cost themselves now the franchise tag now becomes the floor. The next franchise tag now becomes the floor for the next negotiating period, and so on and so on. We've seen how this works out. But what's the deal I wonder you know he's? He's one of the most efficient players in the league. He fits well in the offense. You kept the coordinator. Is this Mike McCarthy saying? I WANNA. Get a look at the Sky I. Yeah this one is surprising as well to me. Connor I mean it seemed like they were the last couple of weeks headed toward their kirk cousins situation, but it's still kind of stunning that they took care of their running back before their quarterback like this all dates back to that decision to sign Ezekiel Elliott I instead of taking care of the quarterback, and that and they end up here and now they're in this as you referenced this. Three, year kind of tag situation where the numbers go up, which obviously is the base negotiating point for a long term deal, so you know next year would be. This year's tag is about thirty one million next year tag is like thirty seven and a half million or so, and then they have a choice between the transition and a super high franchise tag the year after that as opposed to the long-term deal. Deal

"This week we talk about fighting fires twice a week. A firefighter dies in the line of duty. Heroes sense of the word firefighters spend their lives, doing gritty dangerous work, wearing down their lungs and their bodies, so that the rest of us can have safer lives the biggest fire in recent San Francisco history began with just a few wisps of smoke from the top story of the building right here within a half hour, the entire structure was engulfed. Here's how it happened beginning with the first call to fire dispatch. Construction. East of Los Angeles more than fifteen hundred firefighters are facing walls of fire, eighty feet, tall, hot, dry gusts, or whipping up fire tornadoes across brush, Brittle from drought. Firefighters a frontline responders in the battle against climate change whether it's fighting raging wildfires or helping urban dwellers overcome extreme heat or rescuing victims of rising seas, firefighters, a who we call on. What is less well known that? are being exposed to toxic soup of chemicals from melting screen TV's and nylon carpets each time they respond to a residential fire. I talk with Tom O'Connor. Battalion Chief in San. Francisco's five. The poppin as well as one of the directors of the San Francisco Cancer Prevention Foundation about how firefighters a leading the charge to clean up. One Community at the time. I stopped by asking Battalion Chief O. Connor how long he's been with the San Francisco Fire Department. Had Been a firefighter in San Francisco for roughly twenty seven years until one attracted you in the first place to becoming a firefighter. ability to help others and engage in some sort of civic duty that I wanted to serve the community and as well as a kind of drifting between jobs. At that point in my life I thought I was going to be a college professor and I was in Grad. School Davis and this job came up in San Francisco, and I thought well. Maybe I'll do this and make our way through Grad. School before I get my Phd and twenty seven years later and all but dissertation, but one day I'll go back and finish up. What what was on Tom. Science that's pretty amazing that you made that switch of that time that you thought about being firefighter before and the first and the family come from a family of new. York cops and ironically enough My mother's an identical twin, and both sisters gave birth at roughly the same time, and my cousin is in New York firemen and I'm San Francisco firefighter. So yeah, we both kind of follows similar career paths in life. We're in an interesting time as it relates to public service and firefight is still revered, and you'll everyone's local hero, whereas the police are going through a rough time in terms of public perception, and and frankly the behavior firefighters are very fortunate in that. Every time were called. Were there to help? We don't give out tickets. We don't arrest people like there's no. Negative outcome of a visit from a firefighter. We know that the public call us at their absolute worst moment, so we make sure that they have absolute trust in us if they call and they want us, there were at their lowest of low. We WanNA. Make sure that's a very non-intrusive private visit and we WANNA. Maintain that trust so if they opened their doors stranger to. To come in and help we WANNA make sure that they always feel welcome to open that door, so we're always in the community talking to people and we make sure we follow up on the clients that we do visit for Medical Paul or fire call I mean we really nurture the relationship with the community, so it's sort of an oral tradition that's been handed down. With virtually every fire department in the nation, that's you maintain that that level of trust in that relationship with the public and one of the things that's unique about firefighters is you'll live together I mean it's more like a family. You're going back to your family of firefighters. How does that shift even work at one twenty four hour shift, and usually you're off for forty eight hours, and it comes to forty eight or fifty six hour workweek. But yeah, it is kind of a unique social experiment where you put all these people together for twenty four hours. We have meals together and us. You know live and fight and work together, and it's like any family. You'll have fights. You have disagreements and you make up and you come together, and there's high points and low points, but. You make it all work. Some people say we put the fun and dysfunction, but Like it, it's a it's a great experiment and is really an enjoyable profession especially when you put that family aspect together, and where's your battalion Tom I'm battalion one which goes from downtown, San Francisco Chinatown North. Beach all you over to the wharf, so it's a big busy battalion. How many? Do, you have We have roughly seventy firefighters this battalion every day, so it's five stations and I get about six thousand runs a year so I don't know how many would get with all the engines and trucks put together probably in excess of ninety thousand calls a year amazing. It's huge. Yeah, we keep busy. It's really slowed down now with the pandemic because downtown is emptied. So, there's nobody to call nine one one anymore. They're all sheltering in place somewhere
How Too Much Content on Your Website Can Harm Your Business
"Recently our team at. A have been doing some auditing to our website. This has a lot to do with the fact that we're designing a new sign in removing a lot of things over from the old to the new, and they want to kind of clean up shop. One of the things that we learned from SEO expert Brian Deane over a back link Oh dot com. Is that the number of pages on your website? Net includes your blog. Posts were any page that you have? have. Public has a great effect on the SEO juice. You get for your site for Your Business Fixer ranking. If fixer exposure a whole lot the way he explains it is, let's say for example. Each website gets a hundred units of power. Okay, and your website has a hundred pages. The power of your website is spread against all the pages you have that means in this scenario. Each page only has one unit of power, but if your website had twenty pages. Pages versus one hundred, each page would have five units a power five exiting the SEO juice. Now, of course there are other factors in play, but one of the things that can really boost your rankings almost instantly is calling your website taking looking at the pages, the posts that are just not doing well and you guessed it. Delete them. Get rid of them on. Publish them. They're not serving your site. Get rid of him. It's actually better to have high quality. Quality blog posts on your site that are back linked to that are popular shared, then just having a ton of blog posts just for the sake of having lots of blog posts now actually practices what he preaches, he doesn't release a block post every day or every week or every month he actually publishes a blog was every six to eight weeks, but when he published the blog post, it is epic. It's like ten thousand words. It's basically an e book. But it becomes the definitive guideline for the topic of that blog post. It becomes a sharable blog post because a blog post, people linked to and because he doesn't publish them much all his blog posts are epic has enough time to publish deep content and go deep on a topic. Yes, time to work on making sure the content is shared and back link to buy big sites so. So one of the ways you need to think about this is every time you publish a page on your website. It's like an investment. You have to really think twice before publishing a page. Make sure counts make sure that you're giving a lot of value, and you're not just publishing pages just to have lots of posts or pages on your site. This is trying to be economic with. His. It's better to have a long page. Then several short pages, so one of the things you can do to get started is just go to Google analytics. This is exactly what we've done. And this is what connor? Our head of content is working on right now you just go to Google analytics, and you see all the pages that are being crawled or are public that Google is finding. On the web and you rank those pages by page views how many people have viewed that page and you can do for the last six months or the last year and depending on the number of pages on your site. You'RE GONNA, have two different strategies, so the first thing is if you have a lot of pages on your site, let's say over fifty pages I basically. Look at the pages that. That are just not getting as much traffic as my best pages are my best blog posts and to me, that means anything less than five X. Save for example You have a block. Post is getting five thousand views in the year. Anything less than a thousand views. I WANNA get rid of is just not doing well compared to my best post, you can consolidate in, so maybe you have A. A blog posts that's on three different topics. Maybe you can merge these topics and make one big epic post same thing for pages on your website. Informational pages things about your product. Is there any way you can merge these pages into one page like one feature page? This is going to be tough because you're going to have to be brutal. You gotta be like killing your darlings. Here's where they call. Call it, but you got to cut. What's not serving your business with us? Serving your site? Many people see an increase of twenty five to thirty percent and traffic immediately when they do this audit because Google will recognize this audit and boost your rankings so when it comes to your website, the more is not mayor. I got more today's topic, but before that let me give love
So did Connor McKenna have coronavirus or not?
"So no one can we talk a bit about Connor McKenna, he's an essendon football player. And he tested negative corona virus on Tuesday, but he'd had a positive result over the weekend and he'd had an irregular test result a couple of days before that, so they weren't really sure which it was, and now they're sort of. It's looking like. Maybe he's fine, but I thought that it was way more likely that you'd get a false negative than a false positive so this. Is Not a great surprise in. You'd have to say that he has had the infection. He has been positive for covid nineteen, and it was accurate, because false negatives are much more common false positives. So what's what are we talking about here? So if you were to postulate, the comic has not been infected at all with the COVID nineteen virus. You'd have to say that the test. The day where he was positive was a false positive, so he was really didn't have. have any virus and the test falsely said that he did. That's extremely rare. What is much more common is the test doesn't show that you're positive. When you are in other words, you're carrying the virus, but the test doesn't show that you are and so. What Connor McKenna has shown a very typical pattern of people with corona virus. Is that early on in the infection? The test is either equivocal or negative, because he simply just don't have enough virus there to. To trigger the test, or the might be something wrong with the test early on then as more and more environment accumulates in your body, the test becomes more accurate, and therefore you know. He had some equivocal tests then he's scored positive. That's roughly around the time that you'd expect them to be accurately positive. And now he's scoring negative, which either means he's truly cleared the virus from his system, or he still has the virus, but the test isn't sensitive enough to. To, pick it up. Which is why he'll have more tests, so you have to say there's no confusion here. McKenna has been infected with the covid nineteen vars very typical pattern, so we possible it would be technically possible to see whether or not because you could do an antibody test if you wanted to. Maybe we're not talking about comic specifically here, but someone who had these sort of testing Patton. You could have a look at the antibodies and see if they. Had had it or not, after the fact after the fact, and well after the fact, it doesn't help you this week. It might help you in a month's time. True to get to the bottom of the affair, but at the moment antibody tests don't help you. You've got to go for the virus itself or the genetic trace of the virus so I. Mean you're making it sound quite cut and dried. Why are we still speculating about these wise and it just? Yes, he's had it. He should be an isolation while assume because. Team would love it to be. A crappy taste and he's never been positive all along and the and the one player who seems to have had significant contact with him is off the hook, and as a quarantine for two weeks and the team. You can get back to playing. I mean that's me being cynical, so there's there's a lot at stake here whereas if it's your granny. Important to your granny, but not necessarily to the community at large
Sameer Pandya on "Members Only" Book
"Everyone John Wartime here. Sports illustrated tennis podcast. Everyone is doing well our guest. This week is severe Panja. Who is a professor at the University of California Santa Barbara teaches creative writing Asian American literature, and also more importantly for our purposes has just written a terrific tennis book members only which tennis figures prominently both as a plot device in a metaphor I. I absolutely devour this book. We will link it link the Amazon page on our show page, but this is a fun conversation talking about tennis talking about writing talking about tennis as a storytelling device full disclosure Samir I share a publisher and publicist, so I want to dispense with that, but this was a really fun conversation a fun book timely book. I think people will love book members. Only it's called, and here is a on enjoyable half hour conversation here we go. I start off by congratulating him. I really you know people. Binge Watch TV shows I. binged dread members only and. Plowed through edited, it did not disappoint. Grad seriously congrats I. Mean it's it's great. It's it's really. SMART, and funny, and I thought we'll talk about this later. I thought very topical, and it's also does. Does tennis right so you succeeded on many dimensions as far as I'm concerned. CONGRATS I. I will say that you saying it did tennis right? Is means particularly lot because you know. I think. In terms of different kinds of readers, right, there's there's. Specific details if I'm reading something in if somebody gets a core detail wrong, which is not that big of a deal? It can be. It can break it for me. You know I'm Mike. Okay I can't do this anymore. Right I can't go down this road trusting this person and so I'm really happy to hear that I mean. Tennis is a big. I love the sport and we can also talk about that as well, but so that's great. Thank you I I. I wrote it with a certain kind of. Kind of propulsion in mind, right and I kinda wanted to be read that way, and then hopefully there other things. You know that you can go back to, or you can think about in ways in terms of how Raj operates in this in this book that can take a little bit more consideration, but you know in these in. These days. I want to read a book quickly. And I think in some ways I wanted to write a book that people could read quickly as well. The I say it's your talk. Not I feel like you're talking about a nonfiction book and everything's on the table. Right everything the next serve I feel I. Don't know what lessons You'd like me to take I don't know how much we can reveal here. Well, let's start you. To your character, so let's let's start there To to tennis fans, it is not spelled R. A. J. as your character is, but you know Raj is a name of relevance. Tennis fans You, you mentioned the details. You Got Right now. I think you're absolutely right. I think the second somebody writes about tennis of calls. A rally volley! We've got issues right? You did not do that this either was a studious research or else. You really have some grounding in tennis. What's what's your background sport? Yeah, you know so I so we came. We moved to America when I was eight years old. I lived in Bombay until I was eight owes a huge cricket fan. I played a ton of cricket. And we moved into A. Kind of an apartment complex when we arrived here and and. There was a tennis court. Right next to it where we're well. This was in the East Bay. This was east of. Glee in in in a in a city called San Pablo. and. You know. I think when I was like nine or ten years old, there was a man who would always come there in hidden serves like ten down the t ten out. Why ten down the T ten out wide, and I just started going down there and Collecting balls for him. And this! I think a you know him and his wife. They didn't have kids, and you know in a lovely gesture. At some point. He showed up with a tennis racket. And kinda showed me how to shift the grip for forehand and backhand, which was my first official lesson in the game and so. I so I started playing there. I played through high school and you know. and. Then I stopped playing the game for years. I stopped playing college. I didn't play it in Graduate School You know I moved my wife and I moved to new. York For five years where I had my first academic job. Getting Court New York as you know, is not an easy task, and so I have always kind of played the game, and then also I just love the game the pro game as well right, which is that I wasn't quite. Aware of the Borg McEnroe Connors era, but I think I really started watching you it with lendl real under at Burgh those are the I think in Michael Chang, so that was kind of mid might time said mid eighties moment. And so I've been kind of a fan of the sport in that way throughout the time and then. You know it's a great middle aged sport like I, love. I love the sociology of it. The player talking yeah. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, so in both of those things, so that's why I'm just. It is as a kind of as a spectator as a player It's a one sport that I kind of gravitate towards the much.

They're still stuff that I'M GONNA learn in that I will incorporate right into you know when there's continuing ed or maybe even just in future courses so I'm I'm hoping you know there's starting again it almost goes back two elite performers just in anything whether it's sports or even in business they all have coaches Lebron James He's got a coach he's got a trainer all these people are all CEO's they all have coaches that people that are bringing to them at different perspective or keeping them grounded or or giving them new information so we can learn exactly so I wanted to share this with you at as as a result of going through workwise I came up with some goals and just just so people can hear they can ill we can illustrate the point here and then I'd like to hear yours take on them and maybe we can ask a few questions and see if some of the are realistic shortsighted whatever the case may be I'd love to hear so the way I do it is you know I my goals are always focused around things that are within my control so the only person hi can blame if they don't get done as me right good so far so good yeah so you know the the racing I have three weekly goals in three monthly goals and these all have to do with publicity spreading awareness building my list building my connections buildings I might the people that I know and I can reach out to and so forth and so on so the first one is you know I I have a minimum of two news do interviews on my show per week right and that's that's taken from the fact that I've been have I been doing two or more interviews week for the last six to seven months consistently so impressive Jesse now I mean that's not an easy thing to do so Kudos to you on that well I thank you if it wasn't templates and that's what I figured out I probably wouldn't be able to but so there's that then what I'm this one is is actually much more much trickier for me I'm trying to I'm working towards getting three new appearances is on someone else's show and that can be a podcast it could be radio TV it could be a blog whatever per week and snow this tomorrow I go to Idaho got my first TV appearance which is great but I but apart from that you know I and have anything and so I'm well I take that back I do have I got one over the weekend and I forgot to put that in there so we'll start coming out of the gate if you number one from blog standpoint there's something that you've written that relates to adding value and anything networking related I would Alan Jere have you write something on our on our block we get a lot of traction on there so at supplement might be able to help you and even you can write about this you can write about your Eric even you know so hopefully that helps you with one there other people that you can reach out to that have been on your show I would almost go back to that have to each and every one of them share the goals that you haven't asked them who they know that they can put you in touch with don't ask if they know because if you ask an if question you know you're GonNa get yes or no in everyone's automatic default is no just test it so you got to overcome that and give them a who do you know so you can now you've overridden yes or no and you've given them the opportunity to get right to you've already told them that you know they know somebody because they do though it's a matter of you know who do you know looking for two or three people and if they give George Three people that were for you what Nice Okay Yeah well I I'm grateful for that for that generous offer and I'd and there's another example of something I had you know it would be something I would I would eventually probably figure that out about nine months from now so you've just a bunch of time you know what that's what networks do when you have these networks they help things I love Michelle till's Letterman is she's fantastic she's written a bunch of books on on networking been on my show but I love I a user code all the time I think it's even in the course where we you've got you develop out would you develop these networks they make things happen for you faster easier and better already been you know why not reach out to someone else who's already has twenty years of certain experience if you have access to them you'll get the learn within seconds or minutes what's taken them twenty years though yeah and you've got that network you've built the network as far as I'm concerned Ball you've got everything at the tip of your fingers it's just a matter of accessing that part good and when we started this conversation you know you talked about being forget how you worded it but it was like a super connector or strategic connector I forgot exactly the wording but I don't think most people understand what what that needs so you know net workers what they are they're essentially like you're an information broker you're person that occupies a key role in a social network by connecting despair groups of people Oh so superconductors those people that serve people in their networks by connecting them others so think about all the people that you've connected all the people that you've helped out and again I would challenge you to go back to ask them you know about you know let them know in your situation is in this you know these are my goals how can you assist me in these bowls yeah yeah no that's good good thank you for that I I I agree that's in fact that's a lot of what I'd tell that's how I tried to describe strategic connections is I'm basically delivering a prequalified prospect right straight to your door are so that's shrinks the sale cycle for you where are you cut out you cut out the the strategy you cut out the marketing you cut out if you gotta go outbound trade shows or networking or whatever you cut out the phone calls you cut out the pursuit prospecting I'm taking all the way to the closing point and all you got do is is shut the door right now I'll give you another one do you know do you know Laurie social capital you might know social capitalist so on that's another one so I think that that is someone that you might WanNa talk to she's got a good acids all about relationships and how to develop this social capital which is right in line with what your messages also yeah so gear coming right out of the gate again is just having a conversation and I hope that that your listeners it you know we all have access it's all sitting at the tip of our fingers it's just a matter of have you built a strong enough relationship with someone got deep enough with that number one that they can trust you and that they feel that not only do they trust you trust is transferable because can put their name Bahaji though spending a couple of extra minutes getting to know people adding some value then again when it comes time for you to need something response no as opposed to ally don't or but you know what I don't talk to this person because they might know someone who knows somebody I know I yeah it's it's it is it's in the question to me always balls back to can we a step back enough from ourselves to to realize there's a lot more opportunity in front of us than than we think because we tend to get tunnel vision you know after a while if you if you're not sure of what to do and then on top of that you're not aware that you're not sure what to do.

wise course and host of its opponents podcast Adams as social architect and we're GonNa get into what that means but like me he's a power House Strategic Connector Adam thank you so much for joining us and welcome to the show my friend man I've been looking forward to it I just wanted to hear your voice savings my name I feel like now I've made it in life you feel a degree of legitimacy do you I I totally do I appreciate your kind words boards and We'll go ahead I'm sorry I cut you off oh I was just going to say not to worry if you if you're feeling a degree of legitimacy will soon dispense with that if it's up to me so it gets Adam you've gotta I WanNa get into your background here a little bit you you know you and I both come from the professions of finance asset growth protection and that kind of thing and that is one of the the groups that I feel that I can speak to the most authoritatively but but the reason I I I I like to speak to them is because the people in both finance insurance wherever you wherever you're you're applying your trade you have to understand how much how much more valuable relationships are you're then you're you're technical knowledge of you know interest rates mortgages whatever that may be anyway we're going to get into that but the first thing I always like to do at him as if you wouldn't mind sharing a little bit of your back story and all that in your own words well it's a boring guy no in all seriousness I think I'd like to think that my background's pretty interesting being that you touched upon financial services have spent a decent amount of time in but I've had the good fortune of being able to be in a bunch of other different industries as well everything from including neuro technology cannabis insurance of work in a bunch of really interesting structured finance which again falls under the Financial Services umbrella but it's kind of its own special niche niche if you will career coaching of at a resume writing but really interesting things and I've got a decent modem of success and at the end of the day each and every success that I've ever had or experienced isn't it China low it's the result of just these amazing people that I've been fortunate enough to surround myself with so I mean as I'm sure you're gonNA test ed similar experiences there's really nothing that you do by yourself and I know at least for my in my situation definitely the nothing by myself it's really other than surrounding myself with top shelf people and no as for me personally I mean a serial entrepreneur at heart and I've been involved a number like I was saying these industries and I have held a variety of different roles mostly in like a principal officer or founder capacity Oh and of a podcast called conversations with the Congress but but so what I did I kind of combined everything that I had done and created an organization called network wise in for lack of a better term we are is a networking content company essentially we've created gold standard or the governing body of what it means to build world-class relation church so that's my entire focus and that's what I'm doing just having opportunities to speak with awesome people like yourself and try to kind of keep people kind of have the right mindset in to show them the way to build he's world-class relationship so they can expedite outcomes positive outcomes in their loss yeah no well and that's that's the whole thrust of of the show of this show influence our networking secrets what what I what I really want people to to catch here is to a double edged sword if you will one and is this is how influencers network right and the other one is is the the network of influence answers right that that the show everybody who comes onto the show in other words is building an expanding influence somehow sometimes it's through their their their their command of connecting with people that always plays a role and other times they do it through both through that and also through what they do right we have a lot of people that I've been establishing relationships recently who are not only doing it personally but they are actually of a sufficient degree of understanding of the tech world that they have ways of creating in creating opportunities for it to happen digitally as well and so anyway that's that's what we're always looking to highlight so that's that's great and enjoying it upon all of the content that you upload every day I see it on facebook and linked in most frequently but there's a lot of good value out there and of course we're going to have links to all of what you do in the shout so everybody can delve into that but this episode I've seen this Hashtag on probably on instagram's where I saw it at him and it's it's the Hashtag relationship goals and I just thought to use it as a bit of a play on words because you know what they're talking about their when they use that is usually has to do with your romantic relationships I could use some of what we teach for your romantic relationships but what I want people to see here is something that I got from going through your course work wise we're going to have links to that as well And you made you emphasized quantifying goals and objectives with respect to you know you're you're in person your personal marketing platform So you know this this I assume is is something you've arrived at from for many years of doing it and I'm curious to know what difference it's made for you to have those goals and objectives written down you know that is a great point actually in a really good question I'm I'm personally at a point where this is this has become a habit for me this has become just second nature for me so these days do I have specific quantifiable network goals no Mike overarching goal is actually to be available resource to the austerity of others however in the beginning because what you're doing when when you're kind of developing this way of thinking because it's really a mindset is a way of thinking you're developing skill set and you need in order to do this changing behaviors because a lot of times this networking it's not we're not naturally inclined to do this do not almost like riding a bike naturally inclined to do it but you know once you learn how to do it then it becomes second major so goals are really the idea behind setting goals is to you know again quantifiable goals is for a variety of reasons you know I just to kind of reinforce what you're doing so avas settlement of goals in terms of how many people you're going to connect with or how many people you're going to connect to other people or things that you're going to do for other people that's going to get you back into that it because that's the that's what we're trying to do we're trying to teach you how to make this networking mindset habit because all as much as you'd like to think that you've created your success as a result of you it's not it's a result of your habits in your habits or create your result Joe so I I love the saying by Thomas Carlyle Man Without a goal ship without a rudder so if you don't have this goal you don't know where you're going so it's good a set some goals follow them and you'll be able to Kinda get on that path or or idolizer I'm sure you've heard in the founder of being I he said you can't hit a goal that you are aiming for so again how do you do this if you don't have set some goals if you don't set them up you know from the beginning yeah yeah well and this is something Adam that I know people don't have the reason I know is because I started out just like that I didn't know what my goal was when I went out to lunch and chamber meetings and stuff like that I only do that I had to do it right that was that was my goal was to do it but what happened over time was I started to see this this continual continually increasing level of success from it I you know I I I would get one little opportunity here and there but over time particularly the when I began to incorporate social media into it they started coming at me left right and center now as as this evolved and I became something of a of a I developed something of a reputation as big networker in in the city where I live one day a mentor of mine told me you know you should actually do a presentation on this stuff and and when I present said people started coming up to me and saying I've never thought about doing what you recommend there but I'm I'm I'm interested to try it so and the results came back it over whelming Lee positive and so it just it just gave me ample proof right that people were they were they were going they were they were getting step one right they were showing up for meetings but they weren't showing up there with a very with a very strict intention a very clearly defined reason they were just doing it because that's what people do you know when you're in business you you go out and make yourself available and make public appearances but doc beyond that most people don't really know what to do they don't I mean everybody tells you all you know you gotta go network in networking is so important but nobody teaches how to do it and a lot of people say oh you know it's common sense will you know common sense is now so common in less and less commonly practised so I'm glad to hear that you did that I'm glad to hear that you're sharing that because you'd be surprised it also at what levels you know the people that I have worked with it really don't understand and it's just not their fault you know they they've experienced success because they're so good at one particular thing but guess what.

There's something about that that just the special if somebody said Jimmy are you the best tennis player to ever live? But would you say I mean, that's really not for me to say. But I will say this that if you if you say Jimmy, did you give it everything you had every time you walked out there. And you broke your back and bled for what you were doing. I'd say I was the best at that. That's what I'll say I was the best app because that's what I want is my legacy. You know, not the winning. You know, everybody wins, you know. And but, but I I went out there every time with the understanding that that, you know, that's that's what I love to do. And I wasn't afraid, you know, whether it was five minutes or five hours to stay out there and to play it into do it. And and to love every minute of it. So for me, you know, that's, you know, if people think somewhere down the road that a Connors was pretty good, a, let's cool. That's all right. But if you say Connors was a great competitor. Now, you're talking. Mr. Connors, it has been a pleasure being inside of you today. I wanna make sure there's room for the next time. Yes. Thank you so much as it's been incredible.

And you've turned it around. Yeah. They they stayed until the end they stayed till about one thirty in the morning. And when was the moment, we said, I'm in his head, man. I got this. I just got a focus. So once once I got back in into the third set, and I was down a break and almost two breaks. And and once I got back into that. And things things got even you know, there's. Things that happen in a match. Whether it's, you know, one call or a noise or a clap or something that that you feel turns it around and and one set did, you know, my my confidence and everything even though I was still down to is just lifted and at see his shoulders kinda slumped a little bit. And he says, you know, this match should be over. I should be in the in the shower should be out getting something eat this an old, man. You know, I felt I felt everything that he was saying in my head, you know, so I'd also, but, but once I got through that, you know, I kind of took that as business as usual, you know, that you know, that was down two sets. I was lucky I got I got in a good grind and was able to win that match. But the next day I got up early couldn't sleep. I got up early went practiced in and in Boris Becker. I was on the third court, and he he came from the first court down to the third court and shook my hand and says that that that was some some play in. Last night. And I'll never forget that because you know for him to come and do that. I said Jesus something might happen there. You know, something good happen there that you know, for Boris, you know, and I'm prince force. We've been friends for the gives you more confidence young. Yeah. I said, geez. You know, salsa. I'm kind of starting to question myself. What happened there last night, you know, but but the thing about it is from that point on then I I was I was in the middle of that hurricane. I was in the I I didn't I didn't really feel you know, what was going on around that whole. And then you beat Michael Schapper shapers. Yeah. And that was pretty easy ill-will. I won my next two matches in straight-sets straight-sets. You know, when people are going what what's going on here, the something special happening? Well, it was that was good because I played almost probably four and a half hours with Patrick. So you know, a couple of times it was better. And then and then I played played my friend Aaron Krickstein and fourth round, which was now this is one of the he's about to go up two sets to none, right? Yeah. And. He had this thing. He knew that. He and again, you could see when I was watching the match. I could see that face. There was something he missed the shot that was one of the overheads that he would get ninety one hundred ninety nine percents. Always nailed and he missed it. And were you shocked where you absolutely shocked that he missed the shot. You never know. What's going to happen in a situation? Like that. You know? I mean, that's that's why the difference between number one and number one hundred is so such a fine line. Right. You know, the, you know, does does the Stefan Edberg who who won the tournament.

"But you know, it's tough for me to ever think that MAC would have hugged me after a match hit just tough for me to think that you know, or vice versa. You know, these days guys today there is just different. Right. You know? And and it I'd like that you know, I'd like to have that kind of rivalry with him. Because it brought out the best in me. But I was at a stage Michael where things that happened over the course of my career, they'll every time I walked out there. I felt like these guys would rather beat me than. You know than anything, you know, which was you know, to me what a compliment. Yeah. Did you did you feel like you wanted was her party you part of Jimmy Connors every match he played I wanna get under his skin. I want to piss them off. I wanna fuck with. This guy's head. I wanna psychologically beat him. I wanna physically beat him. I wanna fuck and beat the sky. Anyway, I can't was it always like that. Couldn't have said it better myself, a real. But it's, but it's true because you have to impose you know, what you have on them because it's not only that match because you're going to play these guys over and over and over again. So you gotta try to figure out a way to never let them forget the last time, you know. So, you know, for me, whatever that took right on our Jeter, and I've been and I've been criticized for that, you know, for having that kind of attitude. Sure, you know, but you know, you know, what the hell like you said, you know, I am what I am before ninety one. You had an injury you're out partic- what was happening like in the late eighties before that tournament were were you having a lot of problems now hurt your. I didn't you know in in ninety ninety your risk missed a lot of games. I've missed a whole year miss the whole year, and you had how many straight US open appearances before that.

And the the end result is like going back. Then you know, there was there was nobody like that. While McEnroe is a bit of a hothead. Yeah. But he came after he came after right? You know there. There's guys that are bad boys. You know, you ever say that to him you ever say, you're copying may. I started this shit. Well, there was there was there was nostalgia and Connors.

I think he can sure I think he can had if you guys went at it youth would have been a good scrap. I'm glad and never went there. Right. You know? But, but yeah, I think it would have been fun. And I think he I think he thinks the same thing which was which is even better. What was the first moment that when you the first time you played each other. Did it start right? Then I had everything he wanted Almira. She's Irish I was number one in the world. He wanted to be number one in the world. I was number one US he wanted to be number one the US. My my return in my my one game was totally opposite of his. He was a certain volume. So we clashed at everything, you know. And and the first time we play was in the semi finals of Wimbledon. He qualified got to the semi's, and I played I played him in the semi's Bateman four sets. You know, right. Then I knew he was he was my competition. I knew that, you know. And how old were you at this time Seattle was seventy seven. So I had to be twenty six when he was eighteen he was eighteen twenty five twenty six, and he was what was the worst thing he ever called you that really pissed you off? Off on the court. I don't ever say old, man. Even though you're only that's cold out. You're twenty six you're not that old. But no, I Don, it's you we just we just combative. Yeah. We just went at it in.

It's staying away from the trouble. I was pretty good at the first moment where you said something come came out here that you hadn't seen before. Or your coach end seem before your family hadn't seen like ferocity that energy that sort of like just that that Jimmy Connors that everybody came to know that you never knew him was going to happen. It's unpredictable. When was the first time that's something came out. We were like you surprise yourself. How like you lost your shit? You lost control. You scream. You did something and you then you were okay with it. I want how did that evolve. Was that just a slow evolution of? The PI wasn't amid just didn't all of a sudden happen. I mean, you know, my at my soi wasn't gonna use this were rage. Hey, let's get going to use that my rage came from an early age. I I had I had a lot of it. And tennis was very good for me because of to to get rid of that. Right. And and and then, you know, as as I as I use that I could push myself further and push myself harder because of that.

"You know, I didn't have any so trying to figure out ways to to make money and they offered me a good contract to to play team tennis. So plus it was it was matches leading up to Wimbledon and the French and all. That which would have been good for me. So all that aside the French decided that team tennis wasn't good for the game in itself. And and that that was going to keep guys from playing in the major tournaments and so forth, which for me was just the opposite. I was going to play the majors and use adas as matchplay and getting in shape and all that. So anyway, they decided to keep me out piss you off. You know, so many things happen then. Yes, it pissed me. It did. And and, you know, you know, go back, and whether I would've won the French or not, you know, it's it's almost a it's a better story that went on in one Wimbledon and the open and the story is now wish it who knows Conners go to won the grand slam. You know, who will never know. Now, it was you know, then lawsuits come in. And you know, and all that. And and it was nothing about that that I enjoyed that was one part of my career that that really wasn't. You know, a fun part? I had a manager. Who was you know, took over that did a lot of things it was his Bill Reardon reared Ilori at who you know, who was probably the greatest marketing and promoter. I'd I've ever met Don King of tennis beyond Barnum and Bailey before Barnum and Bailey, and he could he could sell sell you anything. And how did he sell you for him? And he sold me that was the whole thing. How he sold me. You know, when I was first coming up, Michael. And I walked in one of his tournaments. I I don't I I don't even think I was a pro yet in and I walked into do a cocktail party, you know, for him and the sponsors in and as I walked in. I I had no credentials. No anything, and he says the one and only Jimmy Connors, you know, Dom looking around saying know, where is he, you know, I I have no credentials to to warrant that where. But that was his starting of building me know, my reputation in in in what I was you know, what an is point where you start believing that. All right. Like, I am the Jimmy kite. Then you're right. Then you're like, I am Jimmy Connors. Yeah. I mean, obviously, you know for him to say that you know, he he had to to see something. So, you know, okay. I'll take it. You know? So then you, you know, then all of a sudden you start winning a few matches. And then all of a sudden you start believing that and you're right district believing. What was the first match where you're like? I'm gonna like, wow, I'm somebody. This is the one that now it puts me on the map was seventeen years old. I was playing in the Pacific southwest, which is right here in L A at the loss, Los Angeles tennis club, and I'd gone through the qualifying won five matches in the qualifying to play the great, ROY. Emerson L. I I found I had all this later, but he had just come from the US open where he was in the semi-finals, I think which is a grind..

"No, it was great. What do you mean? We laughed at the monitor interesting. I couldn't fuck in here. You laugh louder. We can't right? But there's something about that. There's something weird about that that, but that's all about performing though, don't you is that the reason you you go out there to try to reach that that, you know, something special. Yeah. Or perfection or? Whatever to to get the the feedback if they're not clapping, you're doing something wrong is wrong. Right. Right. But you did something that no one ever did. I mean, when you watch those some of those matches in the ninety one comeback at the US open, you watch these I like in just watch the SPN thirty for thirty. And I was just like I've never seen tennis crowds like that. It was just like people, and you say give them what they want or whatever. And it was. You were like part of them. They felt like they were part of Jimmy Connors like somebody said on the show that they felt like they helped him win that match. I was there. I was part of that feeling people say, well, I mean, that's that's that gave me what I worked for for twenty years. You know, right, then and there, you know, to to get to get that noise in that stadium. You know, that was twenty thousand people sounded like sixty you know, and and offer, you know for them, but they they weren't applauding a shot. They were applauding performance. It, you know. I mean, they they it was, you know, an at I I haven't gone back in washed a lot I did watch a few quips of you know, that that the that open occasionally, right, but but I would watch that every day, but I've been no. But Michael, I didn't even watch tennis. I watched the crowd. You know, the crowd was what you know. What was what interested me, you know, an in? And they were clapping, you know, when when the tennis was still going on, you know, you know, in in their involvement that gave me everything I worked for right there. Now people out here like, you know, listening and watching this was you know, when you hear Jimmy Connors. I mean, you think tennis legend, it's not like everyone knows about the ninety one US open, you know. But don't forget that Wimbledon when you beat McEnroe and eighty two and don't forget the eight majors. Don't forget all these. You know, do you know, how many matches you played I played a lot of Matt get number. Give me a number fifteen hundred fifteen thirty five. How many wins at twelve hundred oil fifty six K eight yet over eighty two percent winning percentage? I mean, it just baffles me and you look at this. And you're like, you know, a grand slam grand SIMS like, you know, for those people who don't it's it's one of the majors. Right. That's one of the four main make Straton the French US open and Wimbledon, right, right? And the one that you didn't win and you could have won it probably a couple times all four in one year. Which is how many times has that been done? But you didn't plan the French Open. And why not well, I mean. You know, a lot of people bring that up, and and and one Australia writes back, then you went Australia. Then you're the only one that can win the grand slam. Then the next one was the French. And that was the first year the team tennis came in. And team tennis was something new that was brought in by Billie Jean King where I played for Baltimore. So there was Baltimore and Pittsburgh and New York and then Los Angeles in there was like a Houston. There was ten or twelve cities around the country that that would bid on a team and and for their players. So it was a first year, and you know, as early in my career, and and I was still like seventy five seventy four before. And I was still looking to make money..

I want laughs when I said something I applauded I want if feeds you makes you better gives you more confident it strengthens you and it's probably there's some unhealthy aspect of it. No buyer in it, the you know, they're in. It up there in it. And they're you know, they know what you're up there doing no matter. What acting or tennis are what music or whatever in? And they they wanna they wanna get as involved as you, do, you know that that's why you know, this happens, you know, so that they wanna be a part of it. They want to be drawn in you know, an and to sit there and not just sit there to say, they're they're watching a movie, or what are they they wanna be sucked into something special. You know? And and you know, it the more they gave me the more. I wanted to give them, you know. It's funny. Rodney Dangerfield one of my favorites time and he doing Caddyshack. It was his first movie. He's like, I'll tell you. I don't know. He does something. I don't know what the line was an afterwards. He kinda goes into corner. That's pretty good, by the way, really Jimmy. All right. He goes to the corner. And he's looking upset. He's shaking his head. And the the guy that was the Italian guy in Caddyshack. But I don't remember his name comes up and goes, hey, Rodney, you'll k- know what's mad because I'm bomb in here. I'm bombing. He said, what are you talking about?

Rob this this is you don't have to be a fan of sports out a fan of just somewhere severence ceased adversity to the utmost what he was like forty when one of the best tennis players of all time. He can he made a comeback where he talks about media. They made it thirty thirty. He never should have been in the US open. And it is shocking to see what he does in that US open. It is one of the most memorable matches. Even if you don't like tennis. The story is incredible. I mean, the first match people turn off the TV. He was playing Pat McEnroe, John McEnroe's brother and turned it off. Because Pat McEnroe was up like two sets to non and Jimmy came back and then people at three in the morning. There was almost no one there and beat him to advance. And then the story gets even crazier. His mama's idle, his mom and grandmother taught him how to play tennis. He has anger issues. He's one of the most amazing. He was when he was on the original bad, boys. He was the bad boy before Jimmy for John McEnroe. Yeah. For sure this is one of my favorite interviews. Listen to it. Learn you're going to enjoy this Algom creator of smallville. He always says Jimmy Connors is my favorite he walked in there. You had no idea who he was. I mean, you know, he was you didn't know him.

You're good. Honestly, arguably the best desperate play wherever lip and still alive. And you look great. Well, you know, keeping up with things now is important. You know, and I live by one word Michael discipline, the annot and the older I've gotten since I've gotten away from tennis, and all that I still gotta live by that a little bit along the way so getting up and doing things and taking care of myself. And and you know, trying to stay a bit healthy I've done enough damage over the years. You're telling me there was a time when you weren't disciplined. I can't always always. Yeah. And and that's the word I still live by. So I. Still have to you know from my own head. Right. It'll get up and do something so CD. Oh, terrible. Yeah. Me too. Like, not not not like the lines like walking over lines or cracks not that bad. I was was pretty I covered it up pretty bad. When a pretty easily when I was playing because the tennis, you know in the adrenaline and everything kind of kept me out of it. But you know, even now today I've been out of tennis. You know, almost thirty years. You know, I still have it, you know, but, but you know, I kinda muffled a little bit and get by..

"The Connors was tonight. And we have we have to listeners that have called our attention to the fact that the show is on you know, obviously now. Zan somebody was asking if we would talk about it. It would be hard for us to talk about as we haven't seen it. I am DVR because I thought the reboot was funny. I did I enjoyed it. I love Laurie Metcalf. I know she Chicago. I love her. I liked the daughters. Sara, Gilbert and lazy. Yeah. Love them. Roseanne? Humor is not it. She's a little harsh for me. And but I love the supporting cast. So I will watch it. Well, and and tell you what I think with the four one four says are you going to talk about the Connors re-rebirth didn't like the show, but Laurie Metcalf performance was very good that calf. She's a Steppenwolf is just one of the nicest, at least, most unassuming talented talented. Actress is the first time I met her Dean Richards was interviewing her and she was waiting. We had a green room back, you know, in the Tribune tower when we were on the first floor, and it was like an old card catalogue system. You know, where you'd pull out the card catalogs and wait a music library saw the records and whatnot were written on there. So Laurie Metcalf is in there kind of looking through was this old card catalogue, and she she's very tiny and petite, and I'm like God, it looks like Laurie Metcalf, but I didn't want to geek out and be like are. I look over. She looked arrested. Oh, hi. So I answered hi, I'm Andrea. She said, oh, I'm Laurie Laurie Metcalf. But I didn't quite like that. And she was so cool and just so nice. And you know. Just like down there. I love hearing that green. But I want to go see lady bird. I was like Laurie Metcalf. I didn't I had no idea. I had no preconceptions about the movie when I went to go see I saw like the weekend that came out. And I I was so thrilled. And I was rooting for her to win the academy. Me too. You know, the things one I don't know who did win last Laurie Metcalf. Oh, no it wasn't. But she was so good in that. I always feel bad because I think is that her last chance to be nominated. No, I think that she's got. I mean, I think it actually catapulted into more roles, and I only I don't mean that because you know, it's toward the end of her career by any means, but that role particular role. Yeah. Was almost kind of like the role of a lifetime. You know? It was heartbreaking. There's a scene where they're shopping for dresses. And and, you know, her daughter asked her do, you do you like me, you know? And she was like, well, I love you. And she's like, no. I mean like you. But do you like me? Yeah. And it's such an honest moment that kind of conversation that most women don't necessarily have with their moms resonates with them. Yeah. Totally you kind of have that feeling. Sometimes you would we be there's a there's a moment in a movie that I love home for the holidays with Holly hunter. Oh, yeah. Jodie Foster directed there. Yes. And there's a scene with her. Her and her sister. And she says, you know, if we weren't family members. Her sister, basically tells her if we weren't related, I wouldn't I wouldn't be friends with you. I don't like you, isn't that crazy. But that was the genuineness of that moment. It's a very real moment. Laurie Metcalf was was spellbinding so good. There was another scene member when they were driving the car. It was right before labor jumps out of the car and her mom. It's just funny. It reminds me knock at my mom, and I had this dialogue. But we have we have a fantastic relationship. But you know, she's like any mom, she'll say, you should really do this and do this and do this and do this, and where your seatbelt, you know? So she does that still to this day and Laurie Metcalf said to lady bird, you know, you need to listen to me, she said, otherwise, you're going to go to city colleges, and then go to jail, and then back to City College, and she just kind of was rambling and she didn't wanna hear any of it. So she jumps out of car broke her arm. I was really nervous. I thought you out of the car and just break your arm. I know there when you really have to calculate that move. That's something that you had to have planned ahead of time. I, you know, I don't know have you ever gotten out of a moving car. No, okay. No. I don't think my husband will tell we weren't fighting at all I really wanted to go look at an open house. This is years ago. I think even before we had the boys. Maybe no we had to be before the boy how fast was the car going. He was taking a turn. And I didn't Jabbar the car, but I opened the door to the and I just got out while he was stopping. Because he wouldn't stop to take me to this open house, and I just got out of the car. And if you get hurt. No, okay, because he stopped. Yeah. But the car was moving was like, yeah. Right. I wonder if anyone I mean, that's why that resonated to for me was that she jumped out of the car, I've had have you ever felt like just getting out of the car. Yes. As both as a move. And as a statement. Yes, right. Yeah. I've only done it once and because I knew he wasn't going fast enough, even if he didn't stop I was pretty. Yell at you. Then was it. Like, what are you doing? I don't remember. I it's all a blur right now. Yeah. I let my feet that's all I got out like basically walking. But the car was still moving this very poetic so stupid and dangerous. Landed on your feet, and he stayed were already married. So I guess he wasn't enough to divorce. What are you doing? I think he was like what are you doing? By the way, the house that we went to go look at was really cute. You bought it? No. I wish we could have it was during the height of the housing market. When houses were it was like a ranch for four hundred sixty five thousand dollars Skokie and I loved it. It had like, you know, it wasn't it from the outside. Didn't look like our dream house on the inside the way, it was laid out. We just thought it was perfect. And there was a garage that was turned into like an artist's studio, and you could almost use it as a studio apartment if he wanted to invest in it that way. And I yeah, I still trying to find it. I drive by it. I'm like where was that? He's I don't know the car was moving out, right. He wasn't looking at the house at that point you. Yeah, we have no idea where it's like this mythical house. We now I really have no idea where it was. Isn't it funny things like that in your life? You remember something you really liked or you really enjoyed. But you can't remember like, okay. I know I know you're going to know the answer to this. But there's a place called candy cane lane. Skokie or will met it's on the north side. And I went years ago. I was either high school or college home for a break, and it's just we're all these beautiful Christmas lights are and it was always called candy cane lane, and I remember being so beautiful. And I was just so impressed with all the Christmas lights the holiday lights. And I couldn't tell you where it is. I hope hopefully, a listener will here, and I'm trying to find it right now. But there is that those those sort of memories you tried to chase down. And you don't remember exactly where it was. Yeah. Things like that. It's almost like you have to make carve out this part of your brain that just honors there, and you have to like keep it there and not worry about chasing it again. Yeah. Crazy. Yeah. Right. Like enjoy the memory at the time. Like, there's food. There's certain things that I've had my life that I know I've been chasing. There's a tie food that when I was in high school was incredible. And I've never had the same tastes really always like some restaurants will have some things that are kind of the same like the pods. My friend's father loved that. So do I, but some places make it with regular broccoli and some places make it with Chinese broccoli. And I didn't realize that that was part of the problem in the way, I ordered my food for a long time. It's just not the same thing. I agree though. I agree because there I look pad Thai and some people make it with catch up. What I know know know, truly or it's more tomato based and I don't like that. No. I said, okay. Yeah. I know there's again, there's certain tastes that you can you can spend the rest of your life chasing. And at some point you have to go. You know, what that lives in a moment in time? Yes. Like this one. It's gone more in a moment on seven twenty WGN. Did you hear the news metro PCS is now metro by team mobile?.

"Turn to the ground before faking founders hand, he raised his right arm and made a fist some interpreters thought, but he was doing a black power salute. He said, no, that they had no intention of that. But this was a moment. I think it would've been so much to him that he impulsively raised his arm head full, filled his lifelong dream in doing so. He had become the first black man to win a Wimbledon singles title after the match ash still angry at Conner's. Lawsuits stepped out of character again and suggested that his opponent had choked that just drove Connors crazy when he heard that, Billie Jean King, no, she won Wimbledon and seventy five and by tradition, the two singles, winners dance, the first dance at the Wimbledon ball, Jimmy Connors. He said he'd come only if he could have the first dance meaning he could be treated like the winner. When You. he knew he couldn't be, he didn't show up. Two days after the Wimbledon final Ashra verdict to his usual sportsmanlike self. He described Connors as nice guy and the best tennis player in the world a few days after that Connors drop the suit against ask. And so I think it's probably a credit to Jimmy Connors that he did have enough common sense and decency to drop the suit. A lot was riding on the nineteen seventy five Wimbledon men's final, the clash of personalities, the right of players to represent themselves the right of governing bodies to determine who can play in what turn amounts, but Arthur Ashe raised his game accordingly. I think that he relies he was on the biggest stage in tennis, he felt he was representing the ATP and that Connors was a threat to them. He wanted to make a moral statement as well as win the tournament. For many years. It was considered the greatest upset in Wimbledon history. I think it's one of the great milestones in modern tennis. Arthur ash is still the only black Wimbledon men's singles champion. That's only games..

"Zero dash had dreamed of winning Wimbledon since he was a young kid, and I think he pretty much knew this was his last chance but ask also knew that might be wishful thinking, Jimmy Connors, nine years. His junior had won the nineteen seventy-four Australian and US opens and was the reigning Wimbledon champ. He started the nineteen seventy five season by winning nine of the tournaments he entered. He dominated in a way that few players have ever dominated. He was thought to be unbeatable invincible, really avenue. There'd be a good chance he'd have to go through Connors to capture a Wimbledon title. In mid June of nineteen seventy five ashen Connors competed at the Nottingham open a pre Wimbledon warm-up tournament both lost in the quarter-finals in a post tournament press conference. Connor said that he had been just a little bit off his game, but in the future of he would just crush his opponents. And to be honest, almost all of the journalists covering Wimbledon thought he was correct, but that statement just stuck in Arthur's craw ash, kept his anger to himself for a little while anyway, he filed it away when play at Wimbledon got underway. Arthur Ashe Jimmy Connors were in opposite brackets. They breezed by their opponents Connors, didn't lose a single set at dispatch, Tony, Roach in the semis on July third and sat in the stands to watch Connors, play, Roscoe, Tanner Roscoe. Tanner had the fastest serve in tennis and every time he would hit the scorching serves or ground strokes. Conners would hit back ten miles an hour faster. When Arthur's saw this, he thought, oh, wow, Roscoe. Can't out hit him. Then really, no one could Connors defeated Tanner in straight-sets, but while watching them Ascott and what if he didn't try to out hid Connors, don't give him any pace. Just constantly take it off ship and lob just drive him crazy, hit loaded, his forehand volley. And that might conceivably work. On the morning of July fifth nineteen seventy-five. Jimmy Connors was the overwhelming favorite to defeat Arthur ash when they took center court Connors, gamesmanship was obvious. He had an Italian designers outfit on, but Ashmead a fashion statement of his own Arthur's wearing the Davis Cup sweatshirt blue with red letters thing USA, but it was a reminder that Connors had led his country down and let his fellow players down. I mean, that wasn't like Arthur to play those kind of mind games. But this may be been one of the times when he did it was also unlike ash to play a strictly chip in lob game. He killed him with kindness with the slow ball with the spins. Love. I wonder if Cuomo's lost head of it there. I think they asked bowl would floated out. Don't give him any pace. You'll drive him crazy. And he won the first set six one kind of wasn't even in it and hardly one point in the second-set. The crowd is just stunned no one thought this was a remotely possible down two sets to none Connors came back to win the third. Well, here goes founders is gonna come back and he's going to win three straight sets. The fantasy of ashes is going to be over in the fourth set. It looked like Connors would even the match at two sets of peace, but Asha abandoned the ship in lob and reverted to his usual array of topspin backhands and well-placed forehands to build a five, four lead in the fourth set. Two points for authorized.

"Jimmy Connors may be America's greatest tennis player. Arthur ash may be its most influential. They couldn't stand each other Ashra really disliked anyone who had a kind of braggadocio anyone who preened himself in the way that Connors did. That's university of south Florida professor and historian Raymond Arsenault. He just wasn't one to attack anyway, always gave everybody the benefit out. But as a member of his family told me once the only person that he really didn't like on the tour was Jimmy Connors was brilliant, but craven the other quiet revolutionary with a powerful sense of patriotism. Here's only games Gary Wallich on Arthur Ashe's clash with his greatest nemesis when that unfolded on and off the court. The quarrel between Jimmy Connors and Arthur Ashe probably began with the Davis Cup the annual international team tennis event that dates back to nineteen hundred. According to Raymond Arsenault their attitudes towards playing on the US team were diametrically opposed, I think, asked the minute tremendous amount to him because it affirmed his notion of self worth that he was a citizen, a proud citizen, and they was respected enough to represent his nation as was the first African American to represent the US in Davis Cup competition. He had played on the US team in eight different years. By the time, Jimmy Connors was dominating men's tennis in the mid seventies, but Connors refuse to join the team. This irradiated. Ash could never understand why Connors didn't share any of that sentiment that it didn't mean anything to him. If he didn't make money out of it, he didn't seem to want to do it in June of nineteen. Seventy four. Arthur Ashe was elected president of the association of Tennis Professionals. A new governing body created to represent the interests of male tennis players. Well. They're never been anything remotely like a tennis players union and the national federations around the world and tennis promoters. We're really making all of decisions and the players felt that they were left out that they needed a voice Connors refused to join the ATP. Instead, he kept playing a member of world team tennis or WTT. In nineteen seventy four WTT filed a ten million dollar lawsuit against ATP executives and a major sponsor of the European Grand slam events for barring WTT players just hours before ashes, election as president of the ATP Connors and his agent joined that lawsuit, ash was infuriated. So we wrote a letter to the members of the ATP in which he described Connors as brash arrogant and unpatriotic, but letter became public on June twenty first nineteen, seventy five. Just two days before Wimbledon's. First round began Connors and his agent filed. Another lawsuit, this time it was for libel and it named ash and his letter, specifically Connors and his agents sought three million dollars in damages ashes, fighting in and on more than one court. Wimbledon was really special to him. The thirty two..
