Moink Founder Lucinda Describes Her Experience on 'Shark Tank'

"Yes, I'm talking to lucinda, who is, I don't know, listen to how to describe you. You're the woman behind moin. I want you to say it. Where does moin come from? Moin. But you gotta go to moin box dot com to order the and so you can say oink oink just so happy I got moist. You could, but I never will. Okay, now listen challenge accepted. Now listen, so you were talking about when you were on Shark Tank. This is behind the scenes. Yes. And they had treated some dignified woman with their business, whatever, in such a way that she walked out of their sort of beaten up. Yeah, you know, look, she was very poised and confident and educated and like I said, all the things that I envisioned, maybe one day I will, I'd never be. But I had a lot of respect for it and so she walked in and she glad it in there. I was rooting for her. You're not supposed to see the people that go before you, right? And when she walked out her shoulders were hunched down, and I just thought to myself, oh, lord, no. If you are going to do that to me, I'm going to earn it. Right. So you went out there with a chip on your shoulder. Not literally. But Barbara corcoran. She wasn't in the room. I'm sad 'cause I felt like her and I, no, no, no. I thought she was the one that said you seem like you have a little chip on your shoulder. Who was that? John, who said Damon? Yeah. He said that. Yeah, they cut out what I really said in response because it wasn't TV appropriate, but it might have been something along the lines of if I've been disrespectful in any way, please let me know because I'd like to get right. But if you just think I'm a strong drink a whisky, you're I am. And not everybody can belly up to the bar and other words like, look, you don't come from nothing. And a small farming community, I lost my daddy when I was 11. My mother struggled, will you're absolutely right. This is a personal business to me. I'm gonna have a cookie. I'm gonna have a chip on my shoulder because the family farm is something that I'm passionate about. I'm with you. And I didn't know all the terms I had to learn them before I went on. I had to have a crash course of what these words meant because I knew the concepts I just didn't know the words, right?

"The window. I'm going to tell you the real deal listening today. I'm going to answer all your burning questions about work. Life starting accompany getting on track and much much more. Be sure to call in to the business unusual hotline with your question at eight eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. r. a. This episode is presented by. At and t. business. Hey barbara this is leslie from ohio. I was wondering if it's ever appropriate to ask what the salaries during the interview absolutely but save that question till the end because it's much more gracious to ask at the end of the chew and before you who in make sure you know at that. Job is worth searched online and going with that number and if they give you a lower number and you're looking for more say it right than in there. There's no harm doing that every salary. Believe me negotiable. Hello this is barbara barbara. My name is hayley from auburn california. I was just curious. Why is the best questions to trip interviewers. In your opinion you've been in a game for a long time and you're always you know looking for that fresh person. That really did their homework. So what questions Surprise and impress you think you. Maybe i never tried to ask a trick question or trip somebody up and i don't look at the active interviewing as a game at all in my mind. The purpose of interview is simply to find out if the person's going to be good for the job do they fit the company Do they have the skill set. That's needed to perform the job. Well now when. I think about what kinds of questions i asked to accomplish. That goal of the first and foremost is to try to get to know the person as an individual. I always ask questions about their family. Their parents siblings town. They were born in. What's it like. I try to get them to relax and tell me all about the background. Why because you really can't change people if someone has a very open attitude. They're going to be an open worker. If they have a spirited core about their family in the hometown they going to be a team player. if they have grudges or if they're insecure or are Couching their own personality. I know they're not going to be open minded and so i ask a lot of questions about their background because i want to really get to know the individual their attitudes most importantly And the way they look at life The second part of the interview is to really drill down on the skill set to try to figure out. Do they have the skills for the job. And this don't trick questions there. I just present different. Circumstances went on on sure and see how they respond to it. What would they do. And so i end the interview feeling like i know the individual and i know if they have the skill set. And you know what i've learned. I've learned that. You can never change individual when i was young. Doing my first early hires. I always thought i could remake anybody if i put my mind to it. But then i realized if their parents couldn't remake them and life didn't remake them by now. Heck what was. I going to do to remake them. Sino and i interview. I'm going to get what i see. I'm not always hoping like i used to. When i was young i could change them. I can improve people. But i can't really change. I recently interviewed a woman who is very talented. Obviously had the skill set for the job but in the interview. I wasn't sure if she was going fit my personality. I was concerned because she talked a lot. And i'm not a good listener around someone who talks a lot in the workplace and so lucky for her. She asked an amazing question. Before i finish the interview with her she said is anything that would get in the way of you hiring me well she s so i told a. Yeah you talk too much. I said and she turned right around. She said i don't have to talk too much. I can work around that. I could be exactly who you want me to be. I won't talk too much. And i hire good for her. If that was an a trick question it was certainly a great question and she wouldn't be happily working in my company today. Being tremendous at what she does issue and ask that question. I was ready to pass just threw that in. I think that has been something new. I learned recently. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love no doubt. It's been a tough year for small business but those were quick to go. Virtual and adopt new technology are coming out on top. That's why i've teamed up with eighteen business to bring you the business unusual webinar series with free expert advice on how to grow your business from some of the smartest people i know like gary viner chuck ratio ray rebecca jarvis of abc news.

Business shares my passion for small business. And we're eager to hear from you. If you've got a question tweet us at barbara corcoran and at att business. And i just might answer your question live now. let's get back to the show. Hey sh ruthie. From austin texas and I'm glad to go to college. And i was wondering what advice you have for young girls wanting to do something in business Wanting to succeed in business because it's really challenging for many to get past. The barriers are in place and i washed shirt tank. And all these shows. And i i find it really inspirational what you do permit people. So thank you so much tracy first off. You can't focus on the barriers you look at the barriers keeps you outside in the same spot. You're in no don't let the barriers and certainly don't look at yourself as a young girl or even a woman for that matter. I don't think i ever approached a day in my life and business trying to build my life. As i wanted it to be as a young girl or woman i thought of myself as a person and more importantly i thought of myself as a competitor so when i entered the world of men who looked down on me or didn't take me seriously. I don't think i was even aware of that. I just dismissed it. I was too busy. Just doing what added due to accomplish what i wanted to do. And if they saw me differently what the heck. It wasn't until i was in business ten years until i realized the great advantage of being a woman. You know what it was. The guys didn't take me seriously. And so i went around that back and competed so hard while they weren't watching until i became the number one rival. I surprise them. If i had been a man they would have seen me coming in. They would put up a battle. But because i was a woman. They didn't take me seriously. Stop thinking of yourself as a woman. Just go out and compete like you would if you were a man. And that's all we have time for today if you have a question. Leave me a voicemail in the business unusual hotline eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. a. r. a.

"Inside and out. So let's say in your neck of the wood you know your neighborhood you know your township you know the good blocks a bad blocks. The garbage routes the school district's. You know it inside and out as to how to identify great value. All right. maybe you should be on that side of the equation and focus on that. If you've got that you'll have money people join you and you could start a fund. It's easier thing to do the new at envision. You only need one partner to start. I wanna tell you a story to prove to you that this is a logical Way that the business goes and to great success. When i was starting out as a salesman. I had no money. I was just trying to make those commissions to pay the bills. I had no business investing in real estate but when i finally got money to invest extra money i had no time is running. A big business focused on that i had no time. What did i need. I need people who knew the market inside and out and they became my partner's side ten percent partners in the different boroughs because they found me the right real estate. They took ten percent. I put the money in. I took ninety percent. How is great for them. Great for me. But i had the right partners on that side. They had the knowledge. And i was there right partner. I had the money so decide. Second what side of that equation you wanna be on. It's very hard unless you got a lot of cash and you have a lot of time. Which isn't a lot of people for you to be in both sides market. Choose your aside and get really good at either the money side or the knowledge side. But don't try to do both a less again. I say unless you're loaded with money and have no job in of all the time in the world to get really smart on the experience side all right. So that's it that would be my Suggestion but remember that first question. Are you aggressive. If you're not aggressive this ain't the market you to dip into. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love now. Let's get back to the show. Hi barbara my name is emily. And i'm from chattanooga tennessee and my husband and not have about three renault's and to airbnb with the money coming in should we pay off the homes one by one for put that money towards something else. Thank you will emily. I would say that depends on a one thing. Only your appetite for risk. If you're buying these properties and doing well that you have the money coming in good for you have a successful business. But how much of it do you want. Would you feel more comfortable. If you double the number of properties you're managing and renting out. Would that be cold. You're probably doing this amount of renovation. I would think too on the front sight. Is that something you have the bandwidth to absorb and union husband. Love that kind of thing. You have the time to do it. Then i say go famour go as far as you can. And you have stepped into the most golden part of the investment community real estate. Because once you have those first few properties you have a gold mine. You can leverage leverage leverage again and. This is what i would suggest. I would not pay off the mortgages unless this is a goal you serve that you are feeling nervous and you wanna get rid of the loans. Then go ahead and do that. But if you not feeling that way. I would remortgage all those properties. They're making money. The bank will give you a big mortgage and if you go to the bank and remortgaged as properties. You could take that cash that they give you and by a lot more properties. That's how the big guys do it. Anyone who's grown rich and real estate do it with leveraging and that's basically the question you're asking should i leverage my properties were should i pay them off and that takes me to the first question again. It depends upon how comfortable you are with risk. If you're going to sleep well at night and on double the properties with the cash you just got from a bank. Go for it. You're going to be filthy rich. Not just rich but if you're not going to sleep at night and be worried it ain't worth it the only got one life that a good thing going. Why not continue what you're doing. That's it my best advice and that's all we have time for today. If you have a question leave me a voicemail on the business unusual hotline eight eight eight barbara. That's eight eight eight b. a. r. b. a. Aren't a you can also tweet it to me at barbara corcoran and i may just answered on a future episode. You've been listening to business unusual with me.

"Spend on that listen the more crystal clear you are about it the better hiring job you'll do so don't do a thing until you've got that really clear lists including the hours vacation time how it's gonna run overtime at times what you're going to do about overtime. Think of every single angle see of this law scary lists. You're record not for the next guy here. Okay secondly what questions you ask in an interview that gives you the meet the stuff you really wanna hear this one best question the world if you willing to listen. Tell me about yourself and then keep asking question on question. Tell me about yourself. That's how you're going gonna get a read on that person's personality which is key. Does it match your list that you need in the personality and then you want to ask about their experience specifically do this do that. If there's a way you can test the do this do that all the better. But if you can't you want to ask about and see if you believe the answers they're giving you a. How organized are you owe. A morgan is on a scale of one to ten. How organize i seven. Oh that's so organiz. Okay you want to drill down and get real good solid answers to your question and then last after you've finished doing the questioning you want to make sure you're hiring attitude over experience it's great to have experienced can live without experience if you get somebody with a positive attitude. I'm going to use my mike stevens. Who runs all my shark tank businesses as a perfect example cyber leave. You'll remember it in the interview. When i was interviewing mike he was just graduating from college. He was the football coach. No pardon me the football captain in college. Big muscular guy the kind of guy you picked treating seven hamburgers and may be dripping the catchable over his mouth but i needed someone super organized when i asked him how organiz she was. He said very organized. I said how organized she said. Well i was a scholarship kid at columbia university. The captain my football team. I worked twenty hours a week for the university to help support my tuition. And i gotta be plus average. You have to be organized to pull that off too. I believe him you bench. I was impressed. And then the other issue. I had on my list was a lot of men. Don't like to work for strong women. And here's a football macho guy. Who i enough. He likes for women who strong women. And so i asked him. How do you feel about reporting to a woman. I can ask that question and you know what you said. My mother is the most organized powerful person i ever met. I reported her my whole life. I love answering women who knew this. Football hero was gonna come out with that stuff right. So i hired him that day based on attitude and my other important trait can they report to own and you know perfect. Hire his attitude toward him. Everything he didn't know about the job any new nothing. If i had chosen based on experience he was the absolute wrong candidate. But i had my eye on experience a me. I had my eye on attitude over experience. And i had my eye on the key traits that i needed for that specific job because i had taken the time to make the list too. I know what i was hunting for. So that's what i would suggest. I know it's a way a lot of more information in the us for but it is a sure-fire formula behind the right people. It is and that's all.

"Hi my name is melissa. And i'm calling from new canaan in connecticut and my question is what advice Do you give to young entrepreneurs who are finding their way in the business world Water good jobs to take To gain experience or internships to apply to gain experience Thank you melissa. This is a question. I hear every single day in. It's a great question so it's good you're asking a lot of people can learn from it you just starting out. There's a whole world out there. Where do you go. What do you focus on what he'd take. What are you one. It's like so hard when you haven't started down a path okay. So my advice would be three solid things. Okay number one. You want to stay open minded. Okay just see what comes your way you gotta go out and play in the traffic to see what bumper cars of the air. And what do you like to do which you want to jump in and steer you gotta get out there and tries to alaska them. So don't go out there with an attitude that you have to find the right first step. There is no right. I stepped is no formula. Just get out and get in the fray. That's number one number two. You'll have opportunities along the way in the beginning and all along the next job and the job. I after that you'll have opportunities to choose more money or better position or more experience but you know they never come in the same job. A better experience comes with some jobs and better pay comes another other jobs always choose experience because when you choose the better experience it always gets you further ahead when you you back up from your life and look back and see wall. Thank god i worked for that guy. Thank god i worked in that place that opened the store to this one that open door to this one but if you had just bought the job that was offered you because paid more. Those jobs never really go anywhere for some reason. That's what i've learned. And i've had a lot of jobs. Hey and the last is don't overlook the person you're working with working for you boss if you choose a boss that you like and has your back. He likes you back. she likes you back. She protects you. You're gonna wind up in a better job. You're going to get promoted more. You have pushed ahead because you've joined a great team headed by great leader and so don't overlook who you work for has more to do as you happiness you'll find than what you actually do for a living so loosen it up. Melissa you sound a little tight loosen it up. Let's not get out there and playing the traffic. Don't be so particularly. And that's all we have time for today if you have a question.

"And i'm trying to match it with a great enthusiastic answer but the truth is that i got an invitation. Gordon shark tank. I just got lucky call. Not that i was already working very hard in the field to build a reputation for myself as someone in the media space. But i got lucky. Call someone who called me and invited me. Would i be interested in going on the show. that's how i got on shark tank. I might also add that. I got rejected on shark tank right after i signed the contract. We'll say cold and so they changed their mind and the best thing. I did not lucky. But the best thing i did was stand for myself and give them a lot of reasons why they had made a mistake and asking them to invite me and the other woman they already chose or so they said out to compete for the one seat so that was the best decision i made and really got me on shark tank but i do get that lucky coal. Initially that being said. Why do i do it. I wish i could tell you. It's because i love helping people and that was on my mind. In the gecko. I discover that later why i did shark tank. Initially as it was fun. I felt like i could speak my mind. Be myself and people responded well to and they got something out of it only then did i realize the power of plane. The fairy godmother and making dreams come true and how much satisfaction i would get of having many different partners all the time changing all the time becoming part of my family and how satisfied that was. I wanna say one of the thing and that is i love me on shark tank every single day. All right i. There isn't a day on that. Set that i don't say thank you god for giving me this shot and because of that i've got so much satisfaction. Well well well. Beyond what a job could give give. You feels to me just like a gift gift every day but you keep that old enthusiasm olivia from the city of long island. I never heard that line could feel and you sound like you're still from long island by the way. Don't lose that accent. Hello this is barbara. Hi barbara since they keep from olive branch mississippi. I have been a work from home. Mom for twenty five years. I built a very successful direct sales business. That unfortunately closed after thirty five years in business i was with that company for twenty years earned a healthy six figure income. And now it's gone. I never thought that. I would invest so much of myself and my time into that business but fell in love with the people i worked with and that exposed me to. I'm now floundering. And the fact that i've not yet found anyone who acknowledges the skills and stamina and professionalism that building and sustaining in that industry required is somewhat disappointing I have great people skills a higher than normal q. and work ethic. And i'm just wondering if you have any advice or direction for what line of business i'm not consider pursue mix while it's kind of a complicated question because there's a lot of layers would vicky so let me take a stab at giving my my best dancer. Okay first of all get about the regret. I hear between the lines. What always time. You can't spend any time regretting it because what it really is. It's another version of feeling. Sorry for yourself. You don't have time for that. You don't need it you to talented. Don't waste another minute even thinking that you regret any of the energy you put anywhere because guess what you got forward. You became successful. And that's all you can hope to get is success from really putting the pedal of the metal and try and everything you can all right so don't regret it. Leave that behind. That's number one next thing. You have to leave behind looking for the acknowledgement from others. You know people. Don't you know it's like being in a long marriage in hoping a husband brings you roses. Every day doesn't work. that way. Lucky remembers the anniversary. Frankly so don't look for acknowledgement of how talented you were or what you accomplished from people that you want to employ now or from the people that you work with back. Then it's over. You did well any job. You're paid well again. Another version of feeling. Sorry for yourself just looking for acknowledgement again. But here's what i hear in The positive vein of everything. You said i agree with you. I don't doubt you for a minute that you were more talented than most people there. And that's phenomenal package. You could apply those particular talents because said not industry related their people and job related. That could apply to any. You could apply to any job you choose. So what are you interested in. Make a list of what floats he boat. What makes you happy. What kind of industry catches your eye here. There and then to start applying for a lot of jobs. They're all those old talents you have. Don't go away you'll bring them to the next job and push them at the job with reckless abandonment. Don't hold back and you'll have another big success. Remember how happy you were in that old job before it ended so you just looking for replacement and i would also say if you have people you love people who loved you and you had great exposure many people which you mentioned in your question i say why not grab a few those people maybe even one as a partner and go into the same field. Do it for yourself. Why not start the business for yourself if you enjoy being a member of a team you know what you're doing and you produced money for the next guy so why not go out and do it for yourself. I just say maybe consider that but those are to clear roads to your future success. Oh forget the past. Close the door on that move on. Let's take a short break to talk about a company.

"Barbara my name is tara. I'm in from oregon illinois. I was wondering how to deal with Building a small business and a cop and copycat and how to deal with Someone who is trying to come in essentially do everything that you're doing so That's my question. I appreciate it. I appreciate your time and your feedback. Gonna s you. Question was the story. How i learned about copycats. Okay and what they mean and how how. I see it now differently than i did when i was younger. Business person when i was trying to build my real estate business here new york city. I was doing individual sales and rentals like one apartment at a time and finally i realized. Whoa there's a lot of development in new york. I wanna get hold giant buildings three hundred units and so i started calling on developers to get their trade three hundred listings versus one a time. I did the math. That's what i wanted. But i didn't know how to do that. Business a whole different kettle of fish. So i went to someone who's already in the business. Her name was Adrienne alpert who still in the business. I think i went to agent. Albert's office and pretended i was a customer. I'm ashamed of this. But i'll tell you i went into the sales office and pretended i was a customer so that i could see how they ran the operation and every form they use have that could i have that. Could i have this and even slipped if you forms in my purse. Then i went back to my own company and a replicated. All those forms and i knew the mechanism of running a onsite sales job and i opened a few offices all over manhattan with large buildings in effect. I was a thief. I didn't see it that way. I justified but i was a thief. Fancy thief but a thief gay. I was ashamed when i went back to my desk. The following monday's. This is a friday morning following monday. I get a phone recording. From mrs albert wong business. I was terrified to listen to it. And you know what. She said. She said barbara. I understand you're in my sales office at such and such dress and that you are wondering how that onsite business actually operates in that. We were able to help you with a few of the forms. I'm holding my breath feeling the pound in my heart and then she goes on to say just know that. I'll help you in any way that i can. I'll give you all the forms. I'll teach you how the whole business runs. And i'm very very happy to have you as a rival. Here's my number. Call me anytime. I was stunned. I thought what class act. And what a small person i am. I was ashamed. I called her. When i got the courage. I think it took me three days to get over my shame. I finally called for and thanked her. And i became her number one rival and then superseded her and she was always gracious. Here's what i've learned about copycats. It's the highest compliment in the world. Every single business. I invested in shark tank that is exceptional businesses. It's making the most money i copied every day. It's a good sign. It means we're onto something good and what also copycat does. Is it encourages. You insist that you do a better job. It keeps you on the edge. Keeps you on your toes. So when you're having copycats which i hear you are tara. Copycats copycats send them a thank.

And i i was thinking about saying this go. She is going to get so listen. I'll tell you it's different than perhaps you've heard before when i was a still in school my mother was a real estate agent and She idolized you and more than that. She so you so inspired her and you inspired her an interesting way. Which is that. I think my mom saw this industry that was largely women realtors and she looked around and said you know. It's kind of weird. Because all the agencies all the brokerages seemed to be owned by men and she wanted to have her own brokerage her own agency you grew up in westchester and there were no female owned agencies until maybe thirty years ago i agree with you. Yeah yes. Julia was the other not to get too detailed into the weeds on real estate. But she seriously would talk all the time. Barbara corcoran this barbara quirk. In that she was on the board of real. Oh and she must have met you some function or other first name Mickey mickey randolph was randolph properties swine. I put that together. She was solid rock. No question about that woman whatsoever. Who worked her she was. She was my inspiration in many ways as an entrepreneur. Because i i saw her doing the things you have to do to build a business. I mean at first as a realtor but then starting your own agency and then eventually having a network of agencies a network of offices but again I know how much he respected you. And here's the last piece to this. is that obviously. I've had this opportunity to meet lots and lots of really interesting really successful people and my parents aren't around now for me to telugu on meeting but i know that they wouldn't really been that impressed because they weren't that type of people. But if i told my mom that i'm getting a chance to talk to barbara corcoran that that would have resonated with her. So thank you for the opportunity. I would have definitely interviewed you when you were fine. If i had known that back then i see great things in this. My mom would have agreed with you. Put your mother's first thing together with your last name and helming. Wow what a treat to even think back at those reloj as and the good times we had but she was not a fluffy woman she told me like it was what she said said what she meant and left the scene. That was that was your mother. So i gotta tell you one little quick real estate story before we actually get into netflix's and all the rest of it is that we for those who don't know westchester county where i grew up chappaqua particular was a pretty upper middle class..

Come looking for paradise in its verdant rainforests and white sand beaches more often than not they find it and then they tell their friends. Tourism is a massive industry in the dominican republic. In fact around twenty percent of the nation's gross domestic product comes from foreign visitors though the population numbers just ten million people dominicans. Welcome more than six million vacationers every year. Almost half of them come from the united states in two thousand eighteen. A disturbing trend began among the tourists. One that would go unnoticed for almost a year. Someone or something was killing them in june that year a fifty one year old. Pennsylvania resident named yvette monet export on her first vacation in years. Yvette was excited to finally relax at the luxurious by principal resort in punta cana. Little did she know it would be her final holiday. One evening event in her fiance had a drink from their room's minibar before going to bed in the middle of the night her partner hurting gurgling sound thinking nothing of it he turned over and went back to sleep but when he woke he that was dead. Yvette was just the first in a string of tragedies. The following month of forty five year old man named david harrison traveled to the dominican with his wife. Dawn they state at a different resort. But like yvette. David seemingly had a target on his back one day. He returned from snorkeling saying he felt unwell after he dawn fell asleep. The unthinkable happened. David woke in a cold sweat. Unable to move his wife tried to get help but it was too late. David had suffered a heart attack which caused his lungs to fill with fluids. I condition known as pulmonary dima. He didn't survive as two thousand. Eighteen ended it. Seemed like yvette. And david were to random fatalities but in early two thousand nineteen four. More people died seventy eight year old jerry current in january thirty one year old tracy jerome gesture junior in march and sixty five year old john corcoran and sixty seven year. Old robert wallace. In april each of these tragedies were reported to the authorities but no one made any connection between them until forty one year old miranda shop werner on may twenty fifth two thousand nineteen miranda arrived at the bahia principe bougainville resort with her husband. Dan the getaway was to celebrate their ninth wedding anniversary. They hadn't been in their room. Long maranda took a drink from the mini bar. But after her first sip she suddenly convulsed she cried out for her husband and fell backwards onto the bed where she writhed in agony before passing out. Dan swiftly called the paramedics. Dan himself was a doctor. So he searched for miranda's polls he could barely feel it. He administered cpr until the emt's arrived. But neither he nor the medics could revive her. Miranda was declared dead on the scene the victim of a heart attack though miranda did have a history of cardiac issues. Her relatives back in pennsylvania had doubts as to whether they had killed her and their suspicion grew when they learned she had taken a drink from the mini bar right before collapsing. They took it as evidence that something else was a foot in just five days later it seemed they were proven right on may thirtieth at the bahia principe romana hotel staff entered a room to clean. They found two guests lying on the floor unresponsive. The housekeepers rushed to get help but it was too late. The couple was already long dead. The resort identified the bodies as sixty three year. Old edward homes and forty nine year old. Cynthia day of maryland. The pair had been scheduled to check out earlier that day. An autopsy revealed they had eerily died from the same cause as david harrison pulmonary dima. All three were cardiac related deaths in which fluid filled their lungs. But in edward and cynthia's case no one called for help. If their hearts gave out at different times one of them should have been able to dial reception but there was no call indicating the two people suffered identical heart attacks at the exact same moment with three dead guests in under a week. The bahia principe chain realized they needed to get ahead of the press. The hotel company released a statement stressing that they were doing everything they could to help the families of the deceased and they would cooperate with local authorities to determine if there was any link between their deaths

Creativity as a Mechanism to Win

"Creativity as a mechanism to win. What yes that's what. I'm talking about right now. I have been just in love with my own process lately and it involves a mindset as well as a time management hack and one. I'm talking about is i work on my money making projects as my core focus of my day. That has not changed. But what has changed. Is you know grinding. It out for four years plus on doing own gig. Sometimes i get stuck or frustrated or like burnt out for lack of a better word and rather than going. Okay send a day to quit. Seven o'clock tune out. Watch some netflix six. Instead of doing that. I have implemented something else which is far more satisfying and it is. I have a set of creative projects that i'm doing and allotting time for for myself and if i do it right i can also learn. New skill sets while satisfying the creative side of my soul. So it has professional benefits as well as sole benefits as well as productivity benefits like. It's just a whoop. It's an alignment so let me explain the for myself. It might be different for you but for me. One of One project. I can think of as i wanted to learn some harmonies and lay them down on audio software. Just for fun. Because i love harmonizing and with the pandemic it's hard to get together in person and harmonize with people So i just was like well elite. How my own tracks harmonized with myself. Because it's so enjoyable. And i did that. So he became more familiar with Recording software and how to to do what i needed to do with multiple tracks et cetera. So that was a skill that i'm building and singing is obviously the harmonizing is really enjoyable So that satisfies decreed site. And then i was like well. I want to be able to quickly make any audio files. That i produce into videos so i was like all right. Quick hack and learn that real quick check and then just keep going so. That's one and then another one i have is. Oh then. this is totally frivolous inhale. Larry is and that's why i love it. L. being in my creative project rotation is that i've set up in my library. A mike stand and on it is god a microphone. Obviously and then an audio processor with the gain and everything and i plug it right into my phone. Start taking video and my dream for the for. The project is to have gene. Eat some healthy snacks and do like little. Asmar videos because it's so funny. Like i would love for him to be tic tac famous. And i don't even know dog. Asmar is something people like because it might be actually disgusting. Like i don't care. So i'm not really looking at it as like oh i'm gonna make my career out of making dog. Asmar no it's more just hilarious to me the thought of it as genre but then it also gives me more experience with equipment and working with my dog in creating content from a totally different angle and also video editing and tiktok. It's fun So those are just some examples for me. So it's it's kind of amazing you can just be working on your money making projects and then if you get stuck or you get tired Rather than just being like. I'm done for the day. That's it you just switch gears and you activate the creative part of your brain and if you do it right you can also pick up new skills on the side just for fun teaching yourself a whole manner of things and this is in addition to taking master classes or learning from your favorite business. People like i love. Jay abraham so much and radio and sara blakely and barbara corcoran and mark cuban. Of course i'm very aligned with him on social justice as well as how he approaches his whole entire career so anyway that is super fun. I wanted to talk to you guys about that. L. creativity is a mechanism win. And when no if you're doing that is well. I know a lot of people like engineering types to have multiple interests. They kinda tend to do this naturally so they just go from thing to think to think especially if they're like adhd so yeah. I've just really taken a lot of joy in this approach because it makes me feel like instead of like i'm not enough. I didn't complete you know solving this problem. That i've wanted to solve for three days. You know instead of feeling like that feeling and going. I gotta call it a night and just go watch some amazon prime. You know some movie instead of doing that. It's like i'm to. I'm a shelf this for now. And i'm going to activate a different part of my brain know because some of us are both analytical and creative

Drug-Company CEOs Sign Pledge on Covid-19 Vaccine

Drug-Company CEOs Sign Pledge on Covid-19 Vaccine

"Week. The CEOS of nine drug companies that are developing corona virus vaccines all signed onto a pledge not to seek regulatory approval until the shots have been shown to work in late stage clinical trials. This is all an attempt to calm fears that have seen may be too soon for political reasons many Americans are skeptical about taking a vaccine if it seems a development and authorizations were rushed for more on, this will speak to Christopher role in he's the business of healthcare reporter at the. Washington Post. The stakes couldn't be higher obviously and what we've seen unfortunately from this administration since the pandemic began is a number of hyped and rushed through decisions through the FDA and through other political statements that have had the effect of kind of undermining the public's faith and exactly what the FDA is going to approve. The biggest example is the. Hydroxy Cork when debacle, which the FDA gave a emergency youth authorization to it, you know at the behest of trump in the White House really with very little two zero hard evidence that it would have any effect as a treatment for coronavirus for covid nineteen and when some more hard studies were done for hydroxy core Quinn by June, it became apparent that the drug pad dough benefit. And in fact, posed dangers of dangerous heart arrhythmias. The FDA had to rescind its way which was a big black guy for the agency and kind of set the tone for the relationship between the White House and the FDA, and so you've seen trump expressing frequent displeasure with the pace of FDA deliberations, and then what you've also seen was just recently two weeks ago trump totally over hyping the. For Congress and plasma for treatment of Corona virus, and then his own FDA Commissioner, Steven Hahn completely botching the roll out of the statistics and totally exaggerating what the effect of commerce and plasma is for what the benefit is. It's actually of somewhat potentially some use, but there have been good randomized clinical trials that even show what it does. That's the backdrop to today's announcement by the drug companies where they are want to rush in and here, and so the vaccine is a much bigger deal obviously than hydroxy Corcoran or convalescent plasma, and if people don't have faith in the vaccine, the safety and efficacy of the vaccine and not enough people signed up. To take and accept that it's GonNa inoculate them from growing virus. It won't stem pandemic I mean you need at least fifty to percent of the people taking it to build hurt immunity. It's GONNA be a couple of year endeavor and to rush something into the marketplace without having it appropriately tested is a really dangerous course and so that's why you're seeing the drug companies you know sort of tacit or implicit criticism of trump's path here. So they are you know boldly saying would normally not be bold at all. Don't worry folks. We've got you the headline for their Stevens said former leaders unite to stand with science, SCO right there sounds kind of. Sort of an unsubtle dig I think. The political environment, a lot of the top vaccine makers that are in contention right now that are in stage, three trials and others have signed on this. List a few those if you could please. So the ones that are in the most advanced stages three that are in phase three trials, Astra Zeneca Pfizer and Moderna each of these is not a traditional vaccine you know you have what's called deactivated virus and then you use the deactivated virus in some sort of growth grow it in like Ed Whites or And it's a very painstaking and long process with these genetic based vaccines. You can rush them through the manufacturing and development process much more quickly, and so that's what they've done. So that's why those three manufacturers are ahead of the game ahead of the pack and our manufacturing large volumes of vaccine in the event that they do prove safe and effective through massive stage three clinical trials. Clinical. Trials for vaccine take about thirty thousand people and that's an important distinction that these vaccines are made a different way because we don't have a vaccine that has been made in the way that they're going about it. So they really do need to do all the due diligence in these late stage clinical trials to make sure it's safe and effective. Well, that's a great point. Really. Yeah. These are novel technologies. So they do show in early stages they've shown clinical effectiveness and they've shown a decent safety profiles. And so it's encouraging. But until you have the really large scale population scale clinical trials that were, you can see that it's actually preventing people from getting infection out in a community. You really won't know how the other thing is. You gotTA figure out how long it's GonNa work that'll take even longer you'll see is a an e Ua before we know exactly whether or not the effect of the vaccine will last one year, two years, five years. So no one will really know that for quite some time as well,

How brutal honesty will bring you massive profits, happiness, and success with Peter Kozodoy

"Well, fire nation we have a lot to. Talk about today, it's going to be a blast. We're talking about honest to greatness how brutal honesty is going GonNa Bring you NASA prophets happiness and success and Peter. You're upcoming book is endorsed by Barbara Corcoran, which I'm very proud and have always been very excited to say was one of our power twenty, the first twenty people I ever interviewed on this show. So she was very kind enough are never forget to take my interview while she was getting her makeup done before an episode of Shark Tank. So it was pretty cool. It has some background noise going on but overall, it was a blast and. Kudos to that, it's about using brutal honesty to achieve massive success. So I just have to ask why honesty why did that concept intrigued you so much as to write a book about it it's a great question because I actually never set out to write about speak about or frankly even care about honesty. It's surprising to me as it is to anyone that I've written. A book about something we all learned in preschool, and yet I think when we look around at the we live in right now it's pretty clear that we need a whole lot more honesty here in twenty twenty So to take you back and help everyone understand how I got here Let's go back to that that figure Skater seventeen-year-old Peter and at that age. I was the same size, five, seventy cancer a smaller younger. The two things were true. I knew two things to be absolutely true. My Life I was I was going to going to the Olympics has a figure skater unequivocally that was what was going to occur and the second thing. John's I. Was GonNa go to Harvard I, grew up on the South Shore Boston there is only one college for me it was in. My backyard that was Harvard. Well, by eighteen I had missed my shot at the Olympics was clear that I just couldn't keep my nerves together to make it work I applied to Harvard Harvard. Sent me a letter back saying thank you. But no, thank you. Don't call us. We'll call you and from that point on I won't live I, was devastated. Devastated I ended up. Going to another college and When I came out, I started a company. it ended well, it's a long story. Short story has started a video production company, my business partner I. Having no idea what we can do I I've always been the type to think I can do it better. And so the great thing about that is when you think you do a better, you can go start a business. The bad thing about that is when you think you can do a better. You actually have to go out and do it better A. So we spent a lot of years having no idea what we were doing John we were we were shooting eight hundred dollar television commercials for local car dealers, which is exactly as glamorous as it sounds. And I remember thinking like, wow, we could only shoot more eight, hundred dollars television commercials, ain't we would be rich we'd be rich. That's the past millions while apparently I had not studied hard math classes at college because if I had, I realized that that was the stupidest thing I could have thought it was just unfeasible for a whole lot of reasons, and again you know this young twenties entrepreneur. More gumption than brains. So eventually we Pivoted into being a full service marketing agency, and the reason we made that pivots because we were getting hired by other agencies and we realized that Kinda sucked they didn't take care of their clients. They overcharged they missed deadlines. Strategies weren't that good what we can do this better again right? We can do better. So or what we do you slap a new label on our. On our agency. Now Boom, we're full service marketing agency, and so quick story. The way we got our first client was that we were doing videos for local college and shooting their students and listening to their stories. And one day the the market called and said, Hey, we have a pitch open. We're going to hire a full service agency. It's about a million dollar account. Do you WanNa come pitch in do you have the resources to do this? And so we put the phone on mute or like okay. We'll do you know we need like graphic design to do account manager. We're GONNA probably need some web developed. Do we have the resources to that? No No. Definitely not So we pick the phone backup we said, yeah, absolutely WANNA. Come and touch will be there whatever time you need a Haredi go. So. We're in the pitch and at the towards the end we show this video had been recording of their students and the students are talking than we reveal our Tagline, which is the foundation of the entire campaign. And the room goes quiet. And the President looks down at what we've done pause. She looks up. And says, where did you? Where did you get this? I've been looking for this for years and I was tempted to say because we're the biggest bunch of geniuses ever. Of course, that's why I didn't because that wouldn't have been honest instead I said, your own, your own students gave us this. This is how they really think and feel these by the way of the only people who matter the ones who pay you money for your product and service. And so throughout building my company I got very interested in how honesty plays into the organization into the executives because it's not just being about your customers, what they think but I was always fascinated by how some of our clients took our growth strategies and just crushed it Golic a five, hundred, six, hundred, percent Roi loved US stayed with us for years and others. John. We'd work with. We'd give the same love attention strategies and they would just blow up on the launch pad I. Mean They could not get out of their own way they descended into infighting and politics in both quite frankly, and I always chalked it up to stupidity as these people are a bunch of morons. But of course, they weren't that. Was Me being a moron did. A tremendous amount of acumen intelligence to become an executive in any role. What I actually found over the years was it was something much more serious, which was a lack of honesty and in a variety of ways you're honest about what was going on in the world and how consumer trends were changing honest about what was going on with their fellow executives or their customers or dishonest with themselves and with their own biases and self limiting beliefs as a leader in and I saw many. And it wasn't until. I had my own crisis of honesty that the whole solidified for me that I that I made sense of this both both in the organizational sense in the personal sense something terrible happened to me John. It took me years to get over I don't know if this happened to you but I turned thirty. Oh. My God I don't know how people survive that. It was just devastated. I was like this is off. So I turned thirty and Mike Okay. This isn't so bad and then as I looked around, I just started descended into darkness and I just started beating myself up over. You know what happened because I realized that those two massive failures I had seventeen had been sticking with. Me had had given me these big weights on my shoulders at said Peter you can strive for greatness, but it's never going to be the best life because you already failed at that you already done your already failure. And it turned out it was carrying that around. So so by thirty, you know I looked around listen I built a million dollar company just married. My wife were flipping anew house I mean bronze purposes show just shut the hell up and been happy. But life doesn't work that way and I realized that there was so much more that I still had him that I still wanted to do and that's when I realized I had been dishonest with myself. Here I was preaching organizational honesty and I had failed to get out of my own way in realized my own self limiting beliefs and in the year after I turned thirty John achieved than I had in the ten years prior one of these things being the book that is now going to come out this year fire nation I. Hope you can just hear and understand and absorb what Peter Sharing Right now how critical

The Cascadia Subduction Zone

"Today we're going to look at the Cascadia subduction zone, and what could be a mega quake the Pacific northwest subduction zone earthquakes have occurred every three hundred fifty years since six hundred BC with the most recent taking place January twenty six seventeen o one evidence for earlier quakes come from core samples taken from the. The Ocean floor, and from rings counted in the Ghost forest that I'll talk about a little bit later. The seventeen hundred quake caused several coastal regions, Washington and Oregon to drop sixty six feet, massive coastal storms during nine, hundred and ninety, seven, Ninety, eight, washed away tons and tons of sand, revealing hundreds of stumps, the remnants of a Sitka spruce forced. It is through. Through a combination of carbon dating an accounting of rings that the data, the last Cascadia subduction zone or C. S. Z. quake took place. The Earth's surface is made up of seven major plates and many smaller ones. The smaller plates creator earthquakes for short durations of fourteen forty five seconds at may reach nine point five on the Richter scale. They often take place of. Of Water call faultlines between plates March Eleventh Twenty Eleven Japan experience a subduction zone. Quite that lasted more than four minutes at nine point one on the Richter scale. It was a fourth, most powerful or quake in the world. Since modern recording began in nineteen, hundred shake created a Su- Nami, the reached a hundred and thirty three feet and mood six miles inland google. Google Japan's main island upon shoot, eight feet in shifted the earth on its axis between four and ten inches, this was an earthquake created by the shifting of the Pacific Plate finally to help put earthquakes in perspective, the long Prieta quake that interrupted the nineteen eighty nine world series in San Francisco. California lasted fifteen seconds the Great San Francisco earthquake of nineteen six was. was eight point six that lasted forty five seconds, but Japan's greater earthquake of twenty eleven lasted over four minutes at nine point, one of the Richter scale based on data from Oregon see geographer Patrick Corcoran and Usgs Alaska, science center kiss, missing mysteries will now tour the predicted minute by minute impact of Cascadia. Subduction Zone earthquake on the Oregon coast after three hundred twelve. Twelve years to see S Z could no longer take the strain it ruptures at a spot fifty five miles west of Cannon Beach Oregon and quickly spreads along the seven hundred miles of its length from British Columbia to Mendocino California. The North American plate slips fifty seven feet to the south. West sliding over the Wanda Fuca plate, but remember we're talking about across more. More than fifty miles deep, the first movement sons pressure wave that soapy way that travels through the Earth's crust at thirteen thousand miles an hour, it will reach the West Coast in ten seconds. The leading edge will hit Oregon's cannon beach and seaside thirty seconds later. It reaches Portland in fifty seconds his Seattle at nine point one is what seismologist call a full rip? Most cities can withstand a six point. Eight quake lasted about forty five seconds, but the difference between a forty second, and a four-minute quake has like the difference between a head on collision at four miles, an hour and forty miles an hour within three minutes shaking continues, the coast will drop from six to twenty five feet after five minutes. The worst is over for Portland and Seattle it will have suffered from ground liquefication Berlin will collapse, and they'll be gas fires citywide after six. Six minutes people seeking high ground to avoid the soon. NAMI will be impeded by debris driving. We'll be an impossibility at eight minutes. Nami will be about twenty five miles offshore. It approaches like an enormous high tide, but a flash flood speed leading edge will only be inches, but will increase to forty feet as predicted that the cascadia subduction zone quake would create twice the impact of Japan's great quake twenty eleven. Keep in mind the by the time you finish listening to this. There will have been earthquakes somewhere in the world. The Pacific

"Let me tell you that this is borderline genius. If you ask me, this is just borderline genius all right? Let's color code the runways. I like that it's it's. KINDA UNIQUE DEER VALLEY Because they have a lot of rocks it wouldn't work a lot of other locales OKO although. Fake being what it is, we would probably discover that. Harrison Ford is colorblind but. That was Hodgson agent. Now is just an easy Joko. It's too easy. Sorry about that Harrison. I know he's a listener and It's kind of a clever idea. So this is we found this from a listener I think he's a listener, but a tweet twitter guy Ryan Ewing Nine high-ranking guy. What did I say? You Twitter Guy Twitter? Guy Yeah I. Don't know what the on twitter at twitter guy. We're all twitter guys in this day and age. He tweeted he tweeted. The Phoenix area is one of the most popular regions for flight training as such mistakes do happen. Runway landings have occurred Deer Valley airport. He writes owned by the city of Phoenix Arizona has a unique solution to prevent this different colored rocks surrounding each runway. So basically the what what I would think of as being the grass around the runway apparently is gravel. Zona 'cause grasping grow real quickly. You said wrong way. That's not correct. Wrong runway wrong runway landings. Oh! If I said runway. That was a mistake. You're absolutely right. That was Corrigan Corcoran. Different meaning different meaning. ANYWAYS so they've done apparently have done it with colored gravel. The terrain surrounding the runway and taxiways has a distinct color to it and but I want to know whether ATC, do they say you know land on Purple? Runway, purple instead of instead of landing on on the green dot at Oshkosh. Read read one roster. I can't say one way. Runway Yeah Right. Valley. QUIT GLENN! Wait. Never. Only one drawback or Weakness in it. Being told to land on the color runway doesn't tell you which way on the colored runway will now. That's true. True, but you they could say. Let's see what are. Let's just assume that these are two seven and nine there probably not exactly that. Zuma would picture. It should cut down on the confusion on. is at this piece. Is Strip payment or that? Oh! This is the one surrounded by green now which way on that runway? It's seventy five. Seventy five, so they'll say land on runway to five purple or I don't. Know they'll say land on runway to five left the purple one, which happens to be perfect. Yeah, that'd be an interesting question, Ryan, if you're a listener Give us anything in the in the in the follow up in the responses here, let's see. Someone else made my hair. Practice four joke, but there's a lot of colorblind jokes. CH-. Help for blind pilots. That's that's. This is also true. Well. That's yeah I know. Are Up sorry. From flight DECK IS HE THERE'S A. Problem, with death pilots, because they just don't listen. Higgin hi. Let's just discard this recording is. Really really know all right so. colorizing runways. I I hadn't thought of that I hadn't thought about the. Air! Venture colored dots, thing which apparently is wildly effective. I've haven't landed on those runways during those type. Jeb. You have obviously. Is it I. Don't know what's your reaction to that system as a pilot who's used operated on and off it? It works I mean. A IT works well I'll be seems to work well. I haven't landed on the dots that often. Over the years generally I will get in before the show opens, and although the dots are there, I'm I'm. ABC is not asking me to land on them. generally there's been a few years at that's been. Landed on the DOTS, but they're easy to spot and and. My only concern. In the past has been when landing on the first dot of the runway the one I come to. Its. Knowing, that there's a bunch of traffic and knowing that the runway is constantly in use. My only concern is getting run over from behind

We have Barbara Corcoran welcome. Welcome to you to have me. Thank you for having me now. Sharks by brand Damon Johnny. My two favorites well. You've got good taste because Damon's might be favorite as well. How will you quarantine in? How's everything wh where you held about? What are you doing? I'm held up in new. York City right over Central, park seven beautiful view and I've watched those medical tents go up and down, which is a note of gave me a positive feeling but I'm trying to keep my marriage together. It's going on thirty seven years. I know everything wrong with my husband. There's nothing wrong with me. Wow? That's what my wife says. You know everything about them through then. Yeah, I do I'm sitting visit. I'm afraid at this point. Now with the real estate industry right now. You know you made a fortune off. Real Estate and I'm sure you continue to do so you know what what do you advise people to do? Is this a good time for people to get into real estate? I know a lot of people are scared with the market. Drop in I'm looking at real estate as I see. The House market is going down a little bit. What would you advise? People do right now outside of this pandemic. If they have a money saved as far as real estate is concerned. Today is a day where you could really make a killing, but a lot of people don't have the guts to do it. You know I think every single property ever bought. That became my best investments over time homes investment properties because that's what I do for a living I got them on certain times, and everybody was thinking which was gonna go. What's going on and right now? The real estate market's choppy. You've got some areas. We have overbidding Seattle. WASHINGTON portions of even San Francisco still urban markets, and then you've got markets that is dumping like crazy like New York City for example. Example people genuine renew their leases last month. That were up for renewal. Only forty percent of everybody releases people. Are they kidding cities for the time being, but amidst all that change what you've got is you've got a desperate seller somewhere in that pile is desperate seller, and so if you can stay in the market, you're looking in whatever your home ballpark is because that's where you wanna stay stuffy, know if you can pounce on something you get yourself a great deal, but again I say you gotTa. Have a set of you know what to get in there and do that could save. You love to say even now was legal now. Okay, I was so upset by the way. How was recently reading about a lot of people are going to Connecticut now from New York? And they said the prices a real estate. Connecticut are going up, and I'm seeing a lot of people I don't know if this is a trend, but a lot of people who had like small apartments in the city are wanting to have more space now and after this pandemic. They're thinking okay. Let me get rid of this small expensive apartment, and actually move somewhere and moved to Brooklyn moved to Queens moved into. Jersey where I can have more space. So what kind of trends are out there that we should be paying attention to? We actually named the main trend, and that is true of New Jersey Esther County Connecticut. If you're away from the fray, that's the new commodity out there. Everybody wants to be a way the idea of luxury forget about it. Nobody's talking those words. Even people families were shopping. The homes right now aren't even talking about what. How does the school district? You know why because they're thinking. They're going to home school their kids. Anyway, you know the say has to be the office. It has to be the schoolhouse it has. Has To be a place where you could actually love your family twenty four seven and have the freedom to get away from everybody else. That's asking a lot. So what that's translating to right now is a huge demand for housing those areas, even though they can't fairly show those houses, people are riding parking in the driveway, a broker opening door. Tell him to put a mask on. Help yourself home. It's very difficult to do suspect despite all that these properties are going up up up and value because of ear. Funny that you said that I'm actually selling my house and Dow the time I'm GonNa put it on the market because I live in new. Jersey and everybody has been reaching out saying. Hey, we want to get out of the city. It's too close i. need something and you know what selling right now. People WanNA pool with summertime. They like. If Your House has a pool, it will sell so I've had agents call and I'm glad I was going to sell it last year, but now it seems like the market the. The prices went up even more so I'm like I'm glad I waited and not only that, but interest rates came down, but now I have a question for you. Where are you going to move? I would do that a little bit awful. You have that family. Move into your house. I found a home run similar to what you said I found a home. Run this this was it was a it was up Dan Price, and I was able to get it for a great great great deal, so even if I. Take as much dirty dog. Shame on you. Followed in your footsteps. Coming out I wouldn't be the being shot in town. I love your story to how you started everything with a thousand dollars and I read an article where you were talking about how you feel like the people that you would invest in who you feel could be most successful are people who come from poverty and disaster circumstances, so do you find that still holds true especially right now? Yeah, I, identify with people like that and I can give you. You a whole list of reasons why it makes good financial sense as well. My background is one of ten in a two bedroom flat. Let me tell you we worked. Since the time we were twelve, we may not have been like I was terrible at school, but I was a great hard worker, and so people who struggle, and in fact, people who have a real deficit in their childhood I find make phenomenal entrepreneurs. They create a world of. Kind of how they envision it versus fitting in with somebody else's world, and so when on that short time show every time I'm sitting in that seat. I'm looking for a loser. It sounds weird, but I'm looking for the guy who was raised by a single mom I'm looking for the GAL. WHO's mother said she'd never amount to anything. I'm looking for somebody who's motivated by insult. Somebody who's got something approved. Somebody who knows what it's like to take a hit. Be smashed around a bit because you know what they learn in that journey, they learned to get back up instead, giving me a privilege kidder, and now I've got privileged kids so I'm not gonNA. Give me a privileged kid and they. They lacked experience of struggle. You know they've been on the fancy vacations. Everything's Kinda come easy. It's not their fault. It's just their environment how they've grown up and you can't learn the toughness in the skin, and the street smarts that you learn when you come from the ghetto with.

The first one is the right time to hire a publicist to promote your business. And how do you do that smartly today. We have a caller who's asking and should I hire the publicist now. Should I not at all and is good for stupid. Money spent listen. I'm going to give him some advice. Not really needs to hear. Hi Barbara My name is Tai from Boise. Idaho I'd like to know how to find the right marketing. The group or publicists promote your new product. Seems like there's so many out there that just WanNa take your money but how did you find the right one appreciate some advice. Thanks for hi TY BARBARA FOR FORTY YEARS I've worked with many publicity companies. It's certainly an expensive proposition. But let me start by asking ASCII. Why do you need one will? We are launching a new product company. And what are you sell product. We have gone called rural lights. There are new consumer markets are actually the consumer light sconces that going in the house and they actually opened up enclosed when you turn on and off and trying to get the word out there and get people to understand them in contract customers. I mean you gotTa have revenue branding is not my forte rid. You seldom tie right now. We sell them all online and then we also are trying to work with is a bunch of manufacturer reps or they go out in contact different lighting companies to represent our products to them. We you're talking. We do this. Who's the other irving good business partner? We've been in business for ten years. We actually own another company and we started for a light says a new consumer market company. So we're we're branching out okay and is it related to your core. Business is also lighting companies. A new kind of lighting but related to what you've done already. Yeah we've been in the lighting business for about ten years as we make our military lighting for aircraft and tanks vehicles. So they're pretty sturdy and We decided we want to get into the consumer market a little bit bigger pie out there. There we actually had developed New Light that nobody else out there. Has We went to a trade show recently and it was really well received. People were happy because it's something new. They were very gracious to see that some news coming out on the market. So we're trying really hard to find the best method to promote when you went to the trade show. Did she take orders. It wasn't wasn't badly that kind of a trade show is more of a manufacturer rep trade show and we got tons of contacts and excitement and we've been diligently working signing up these different it rips in the last month that this has all happened like within the last thirty five days really fast. So the reps that you're signing up is so that they can go out and sell your product product to the retail space so that the retail space can sell it to your consumer. That exactly how it works. That is correct again they also promote it to you know. No lighting designers and various people like that so tied. Tell me once more. Why is this light special? I'm not sure quite got that. If you think give a normal Scott slate that might be on your wall you go to turn the switch on it just comes on turn. It often turns off really quick. We decided we wanted to add a new artistic element to do those. And they're kind of a mini piece of artwork. When you actually turn the switch on they slowly open up? And they changed form in shape in the lane gradually increases and then when you actually turn the switch off the lights actually revert back to their normal stage and they have a little soft glow about him. So it's kind of unique. It's kind of a new product. South sounds spooky to me and you have two lights that look like little field mice on the wall and then you turn them on and suddenly they grow into an elephant. You've got to be elephant. Funny we know give me an example of how they change shape just like visual of it. And then I'll leave you alone on describing over and over again. No no problem at all. One of our lights is called the apex of a triangle. Shape as you go to turn it on. It actually grows outward so the side piece actually become bigger. The backlight lights up the wall while the front our delight as a RGB lights and they're made out of aluminum covers. They look really artistic. Actually Pretty Pretty Nice. It sounds to me more like you're selling art versus you. Selling life is a mixture of both It's targeted for a high end market. It's not your average going down to home depot so in Celena alight. This is kind of a higher end a home automation products. You know one more thing. What are they sell for list price on him is roughly seventeen hundred dollars? This is precis artwork really okay and the military lights who've been selling to the military audience. That has nothing to do you. These lights who you're selling to you're going out into a totally different landscape to sell your new business right. That is correct. Yep this is a totally new company. Okay okay thank you. Thank you for taking the time to explain a little bit more. I need to picture something to really help somebody. So now I get the lay of the land. You have quite beautiful lights. That are or beautifully made have a high price seventeen hundred dollars. Typically people wouldn't necessarily buy them for the practical aspect of lighting their room. They would buy them into. Wow people like wow what is that. That's gorgeous more like a piece of art both correct. Yeah Okay and you've recently been talking to reps direct you to the retail stores. Hi Sue high end so that people could come in and actually buy them. Yeah okay I mean it's hard when you're a new company. It's hard to wave your hand out there to you. Know in the big world of the Internet. I you offering them online right now. Now we do offer them. Online people can order them online. And what are you sales online. We haven't had any sales of those online yet. We've just had a couple orders through some reps ups and do people visit you online. Have you been promoting you online site. We have slightly through Google Edwards and stuff like that but We we really like a marketing company. Kinda take it over into. We've hired marketing companies in the past and it seems like you know they want fifteen thousand dollars from you just even answer the the phone. Fill out a ten minute survey from your product. That's exactly right and then instead of that you're thinking if I get the right. Pr Company they could put it out there. Get a lot of Action around it attention around it and the people will just have to go online or go to the store and buy a lights often. Wonder if a publicist isn't better I mean it seems like maybe they can draw more more attention to it and trying to find out if it's the bang for the buck it's not I'm going to tell you neither is for now anyway. You don't mind if I tell it to you straight right no. Let's take a short break to talk about a company. I love my friends at onto business..

"Criticism? John from Tiffen Georgia s how do you choose where to concentrate your efforts? If you're good at a lot of things whole lucky John not a lot of people can say that. But you have an embarrassment of riches. I think it's smart to sit down when you think you're really gifted with a lot of great assets and ask yourself, what is it that? I most enjoy doing what gives me the greatest satisfaction. And then I think is smart to pick only one or two to the most, you know, the whole world is filled with people that have magnificent talents along list, but these very same people are usually the people that will spend their whole life trying to decide which one they should build a career. It's the problem. Give me a guy. That's only smarter two things. And he's got a better shot at getting great success in life. Then some guy who thinks he's incredible. At a lot of stuff. So I would say John chis- pick one maybe two and get going with it the whole time if it doesn't work out. Remember, you have this wonderful list of talents that you know, you could fall back on maybe pick two more five years down the road. From roll this question. How can a working parent? Find time to be an entrepreneur and still do parents stuff. If your parent in a loving one the kids always come first, that's the way, it is and trying to be a great entrepreneur wild. Being a great parent is an enormous challenge. I speak from experience that kids can get in the way of your focus your energy, your time, you'd entire concentration in anybody. Who's listening who's apparent is not an agreement? I have no doubt. But I luckily started my business young before ever had kids, and I had twenty years think about that twenty uninterrupted not distracted years to build a business before adding my first kid at forty six, and I can tell you I could have never built the business. I had my children earlier. You can have it all, but you can have it in stages. One piece at a time. And that's exactly what I did. There are many many successful businesses built by young parents. I'm not saying you can't do it as a parent. But from what I've seen. These are the businesses that succeed because their partnerships one parent in business with another parent, I think partnerships with two parents and business with each other work because when you have your kids can only throw fifty percent of your energy at your business, you need to get the other fifty percent from someone else and who better to get that fifty percent from then someone else who's in the same boat as you. So that's my spin on having kids and building business at the same time. If you're the person responsible for your kids be aware, it's a very if not impossible tests to build a big business. So go out find yourself a partner. What's all the questions? We have time for today. If you have a question, leave me voice mail in the business on usual hotline. Eight eight eight Farber that's eight eight eight B A R B A aren't a you can also tweet it to me at Barbara Corcoran. And I may just answered on a future episode.

"Now back to my shot with Mike Stevens. But we've had certain entrepreneurs we have not closed on because they were unable to even produce a financial statement and my right on that or exaggerating them. No, no, I'm it's right there all sorts of things that we run into and due diligence. But that is a big, you know, a big ticket item. It's okay. Do they have their books in order to they have all their corporate governance properly handled? And all the businesses are different. We get some businesses coming in with just a prototype. Yes. And the pre revenue so it's hard to expect them to have all of their ducks and around. I can tell you from the Utah success on the comfy product that. Normally, I would say hey, somebody coming with just a prototype. No numbers notebooks. No idea. Really what it's gonna cost to make no idea what they could sell it for nor who they could sell it to that. That's probably a really bad sign and that happened last season to season nine right? And tell them the end of that story. So all logic pointed to run for your life as investor and yet we closed on the deal based on gut instinct and just sheer confidence in the two brothers that proposed the product. And so with nothing in hand, let them know the ending of that sort of interesting lesson on how to value a business. Well, they came on set with nothing but a prototype in jingle jingle. Kind of thing. But a year end of the business now, maybe thirteen months at this point they have over forty million in retail sales. We couple it's incredible. And what did I pay for what share by business? I can't even remember. But I know it's a hell of a good deal right now fifty thousand for thirty percent of the business bad bad not about. So the lesson there is you could ask all the questions you want on shark tank. You could talk about valuations overvalued undervalued, blah, blah, blah, all the guys constantly yakking on and on about. But sometimes the most pure valuation the world is what's my gut saying I like these guys I believe they're going to pull it out. And they did right. Bingo. That's a happy story. But we have five miserable stories for everyone. Happy stray once you know, my right or maga- trading. Not all of them were successful. And that's part of business. That's the business. We're okay. What spend the biggest or name a few big surprises, you found out working on the shark tank set working with the entrepreneurs that you go. Wow. Wow. Really? There shouldn't be any by this point, by the way, you should have seen it all. But is there anything left that surprises? You know will something unique in give a little insight to the people who are listening while your questioning the entre preneurs onset, I'm back behind the scenes watching on a big TV screen, and so are the other sharks for lack of better term me. Right. Who who will the same position? And it's interesting to see how the entrepreneurs are answering questions and kind of the the image that that we get them in and it's hard sometimes to shed that for instance, higher Santa that came on this this past season hundred Santa Claus Santa Claus with them. Mitch. He's he's jolly he's given a great pitch very high energy. And then I go meet with him in the trailer. And it's hard to disassociate Mitch the Santa and Mitch Mitch Mitch the businessman, but as far as being surprised by the businesses. That's why we do the due diligence, right? Something that someone says onset, whether it's yes, I have a Pat in or I have X amount in sales. And then you go back, and you try and reconcile that with the information you give sometimes they don't own the patent. They don't have the sales at this point. We've seen so many things like that. I don't get surprised. You know, you're almost now in my mind, I'm trying to check off those boxes, but that just comes with their right? You're in your ten season. I've been with you for six seasons now. So I don't think there's nothing that surprises me per se when you're sitting back there watching the show because we're on the set doing the show, you're watching the show you have access to computers you cell phone. Are you automatically checking out with this saying surfing to see what their competition is trying to get more information immediately on them? And does is it painful to you? If you're finding out things online that just aren't holding up already. And I'm sitting there saying I'll make you a deal obsolete. I'm kind of living and dying with the decision. Making back there. I mean, I'll audibly say don't know don't make that offer. So yeah. As soon as we see the entrepreneurs come out, I'm taking notes back there. But I'm definitely online searching to see what I can find. And almost fact checking in real time to see if you know what they're saying is true. If you can figure any of it out and truth be told you can find out a lot about the businesses outline to you, it you could whisper my ear and got something run doing I'm waving behind the cameras trying to but don't do it. I always always find it. Interesting afterwards to come up on set and talk with you and say, okay. Well, what did you see in the business? What excites you about? There's always an angle that you see that. I may not see. Yeah. But let me tell you something. There's an angle you're seeing and a little bit more angles. Because you're not there performing which I am right and trying to get my words, and yeah. But I'll tell you when you walk up onto the set after every pitch one look at you. We know each other well enough one Lookie era is I know if I've made a mistake. It's a terrible feeling. It's almost like I want to look at my no pet instead of looking up for you. I've just made another Walker. I don't wanna know about it till the next day because I still have to perform and keep my face up. You know what I mean? Well, the any entrepreneurs of that turned out to be like for me. It's the comfy brothers this last season. A big surprise was the comfy brothers. Unbelievable have nothing and make so much of it. Anyone who surprised you in the other direction? You saw it's going to be amazing. This person this business amazing. And then nothing ever comes of it. Or it's a terrific disappointment. Not singling out one business but somewhat the structure of the teams, right? We're so heavily swayed by companies that were founded by teams in partnerships. We like partnerships while there's a good reason almost every most successful business. We've invested in has been a partnership, and I have to tell you when to people walk onto the set or three I look at them. And I maybe it sounds, greedy. But I think oh good two for the price of one. Even better three for the price of one without the benefit. I mean, you get entrepreneurs with complementary skill sets at is important. And I know we've talked about this before it's rare to find an entreprer. Moore that has all of the traits of great entrepreneurs that we've kind of identified, but when you get teams involved in get multiple founders involved. One person is a great salesman, the others great with organization or ones, you know, a great marketer, and the other is whatever it may be opposite opposites, but speaking to okay surprised we've made some investments and businesses where the partnerships seem rock-solid the entrepreneur Sema rock solid. And then, you know, six months twelve months down the line. There's discord in the relationship, and that would you say that's the number one cause why businesses fail on the ones we've invested differences in partnerships. It has proven to be the case with several of the deals that we've done over the years, and even deals that that you had on the books, you know, before I started, and it's hard to gauge that I don't think they're putting on a face. But it's like anything as you grow and things change. And maybe the businesses growing too fast for one and not or whatever it may be. But yeah, I have found that. That's more surprising to me than anything their best friends when they're onset their best friends when we're going through due diligence and things may change. But for every example, we have going that direction. We've got two or three investments where its founding teams and partners that are blown out of the water. So it's still for us an important thing. But we're learning every day, you know, to look for those red flags that may signal issues in the future. You know, what I'm actually sitting here in our tracking through all the years all the partnerships that went awry, but as partner differences, and I'm thinking that usually the problem is with the partner who put in the initial money, the capitol get started is usually the one that leaves not the person who had the idea of maybe I'm just tracking through a lot of different people, my head in isn't that a pattern the guy who puts up the money versus a person who had the idea usually gets disgruntled in leaves the partnership that potentially that has to do with the passion behind it. Right. The person that has the idea has that sparked that passion to see it through or potentially the money man for lack of a better term. Maybe doesn't have that resiliency to stick with it. But to me, maybe not even so much in that direction. It's a lack of communication in hindsight is twenty twenty but a lack of clear delineation of roles absolute. Good fences, make good neighbors. I know it's a cliche, but it didn't exist in each of those partnerships in your business when you're building the Corcoran group. You had Astor. Thanks, guys. Couldn't be more different. But your skill sets were perfectly complementary. Well, she was exceptional at the things that I was terrible at and I was exceptional at what she was terrible at. So we couldn't be better partners. Yeah. And if you think about our our most stellar entrepreneurs that are partnerships. I have to say there is not a single exception where they don't have that phenomenal combination in my right? No. That's definitely true. I mean think examples Grayson lace, Rick and Melissa couldn't be more Delissa designed dynamo, and she's not only designed dynamo. She's put together a great design team knows what's on trend has a fanatical base of customers that want to see what are you putting out next? And what's next as far as clothing line items thing? Like that. And Rick he knows not to touch that. And he works as clan of interest. Yeah. He's just working on the on the back end and on the financial side and on what Melissa deems, you know, the more boring parts of the business now part of that probably has to do the husband wife team. He knows, you know, happy wife, happy life, not mess with the design side. But but he's phenomenal at the other side of the business, and he's a serial entrepreneur, right? You've done it two times before starting Grayson lace with Melissa and the same thing Jim and Sabin. Yeah. Was Jim and save him of cousins, Maine, lobster on first blush. Look similar that both charismatic. They can hold your attention in any situation. They both are sales people by nature. So what is the difference between those two because they are ideal partners. They have so many arms to the business that, you know, for a while e-commerce was Jim's baby and men Sabin was kind of on the front in and working with franchise. So maybe it's not so much. Yes. Do they have complementary skill set? Yes. But they're also have a clear. Okay. I'm gonna work on this piece of the business. You focus on this piece of divide up everything. And I think we've found with companies or partnerships that start to dissolve it's a stepping on each other's toes. He has more than me. She has wanted me, blah, blah, blah, the cat fighting starts. So what's your friends UP group? Think of you working on shark tank running back and forth between Hollywood in here. And getting all this you've been in a number of the episodes on shark tank. So you perform a little a what did they say? Does it give you any social cachet with them? Does do they think you're an odd? Duck two they think you're out of your mind. What goes on? Oh, it's always a great conversation starter. I think that's that's you know, the biggest piece of it. And they're always interested. They want to know behind the scenes things they want to know. Hey, what happened to this business? And they really think I'm the expert on any shark tank business. I always have by. Thank you are. And it's not just about. Hey, how's cousins Maine lobster doing a one of the other portfolio businesses doing? It's a as Mr. wonderful really that big of a jerk, or, you know, what's what's Damon like or, you know, all those things or how the deals get done. So. Yeah, I mean, my friends are definitely interested. And it is it's obviously a unique position. There's not a lot of people who are doing similar things by way of working with the sharks. So, you know, I'm grateful for it. Every say, you're you're at a party and people say, so what do you do for a living? What do you say? I know Coniston. He's only honest, the the honest answer. Typically, I say, oh, you know, I work for an angel investor. And then if they follow up with that, then oh, well, you typically my friends like to chime in all you don't know shark tank before he works for Barbara Corcoran. So. That sort of thing. But now when people ask I say, I work for Barbara Corcoran. I helped manage a short tank portfolio, and you know, then the questions start to flood in and they want to know more. And you know, a lot of it's you know, what's it like working for barb? And and

"Barbara. And now it's time to answer your questions on business unusual. Sharon familly, s I'm in sales and talent management. I have two types of clients. The ones I sell in the ones I pitched to it's like, I'm representing the buyer and the seller. I'm having a hard time delegating. Well, and not giving up what I do best which is selling Sharon, the most important part of any business is the selling because if you don't have sales, you don't continue to make more sales, you business doesn't grow. So you have a quagmire, which is you businesses growing, you spend a lot of time selling, but the other stuff is getting in the way, I know from personal experience that the people in the world that have the hardest time delegating are great sales people because they control freaks, and they like to control everything along the way to make sure the sale comes through. Here's my best advice to you sit down and make a list of every single item. That's. Supports the selling process that doesn't directly to sales. If you could get a list of all of those items and find someone else to do them. You will double your sales revenue, and I say that not lightly because I made more superstars at more sales people that didn't want to delegate in my life than probably anyone in the universe. So sit down today make the list and get rid of all those items, you'll double your sales within six months. And that's all the questions. We have time for today.

And there's no better time to explore existential dread than right now. But wait, there's more to the end of the world than that. Yes. The series is about existential risks. But it's also about hope the threats that are coming our way that could wipe humans right out of existence. Could also be just the thing that makes us band together. In a way that humanity never has before in the end of the world. I take you on a journey across time and space from the moment and asteroid collided with earth in set off a chain of events that wiped out the dinosaurs to the post biological future where we live in a digital format. If we don't already we'll explore big questions like whether we're alone in the universe and exactly how artificial intelligence could take control of our world from us. It also has a. Score and cinematic sound design. So it's an adventure for your mind. Which is just the thing to snap. You out of the winter blondes all ten episodes of the end of the world with Josh Clark are available for you to binge now on apple podcasts the iheartradio app or wherever you get podcasts. And now it's time to answer your questions on business unusual gala writes in I live in a very small town. The pool of skilled even unskilled labor is very limited. I find that instead of running my business. I'm stuck trying to fix all the minor issues that come up since I have no one else to take care of it. What do I do? Well, let me say there's always someone to take care of everything gala if you look hard enough and believe you can find them. So your first enemies you have it in your head that it's hard to find people and you're mistaken. What I think you need to do is think outside the usual pools of labour that everybody else's using maybe find part time employees is by looking for women groups who are raising the children and get together and tapping into them for part time work, they have the spare time while the kids are in school. You could also tap into high school kids available after class every day or retired people looking to engage themselves in something other than just relaxing the. The beauty to tap into local groups on a part time basis as you can fluctuate their hours and wages based on what you can afford, and what you actually need week to week simply because they're more flexible than the average worker who needs to have of nine to five commitment to stay around. You may also be a perfectionist, and I suggest you probably are from your question. And you feel you have to do everything yourself unless it's done perfectly, and that could be a real obstacle to your changing. And if you strike out with finding local help don't forget about looking online is Amazon mechanical Turk that can virtually fill any back office need, you might have. And this online services like task grab it that will provide just about any work of any need, you could possibly imagine. So stop thinking, you can't do and realize there are many more options, you could check into to make sure you have the needed help to build your business. Think about that a little bit. I learned after a couple of years in. Business that when it comes to delegating. Eighty percent was always good enough by that. I mean, you have to let go of your perfectionist idea that you're the best person to do everything and accept that job done eighty percent as well by someone else should be just fine with you. And that's all the questions. We have time for today. If you have a question tweeted up our Corcoran, and I may just answered on a future episode. You've been listening to business unusual with me.
