Episode 61 Power Of Words
"Good morning the money wherever you are in the world today visit J D C welcomed champions for life and I am excited this panel the year. Many great things are happening. I know that the whole world is on the pandemic mindset and all of that on the destruction of fear and on the destruction of negativity. Annalisa while I say this with empathy and sympathy for those of us who have lost a friend or a family member or someone we know and that's not anything to be taken lightly. I do want to focus our attention. In what language needs to be for champion for life right for the fearless warriors out there that are living to win and to be conquered and to overcome any challenge that they may have and so ladies and gentlemen. I WANNA share with you awareness for you. The language that we use you know it is a proven scientific research that says that the language we use though several things it can create problems in our health it can increase stress. Eight can create negative outcomes in life. If in fact the language we're using his negative but the same is true with positive language it can create optimum health it can create better outlook on life and it can manifest great things in your life so recently. I had speaking with several people end up. You know this distraction came to the whole world. Some of them are consumed by the distraction. You know the word distraction means that you are divided. Your mind is divided into different areas. It's a stress mind. It's a mind that is on able to focus intently on one thing. That's what a distraction is so by goal for you is that today. You reduce the distractions in your life. You reduce the negativity in your life and we're going to focus on today on the language. So looping back to what I was saying. I have been speaking to several people on their distraction on this pandemic has consumed their life where they become dramatic in their language. They'd be called Berry tense in their descriptive language. Of what they're going through and you know scientists say that that's truth for them but that's not true for everybody and the only reason why it becomes truth for them is because they're speaking it. They are demonstrating it and they are describing in dramatic language and I wonder what their life would be like. Had they chosen to speak in a different way for themselves? So here's examples. So people are extremely busy therefore they can't ABC so people are extremely difficult situation therefore they're unable to complete ABC responsibility. Some people are you know extremely tired. Therefore they can do. Abc and some people are and I think you get the point. The line was instead of being tired. They're extremely tired if they're busy. They are extremely busy if they are in being. They're extremely in pay if they are not feeling well. They've been extremely feeling sick and so I can't help it to wonder what's wrong if I'm GONNA speak something. I want to speak it in the positive term. That doesn't mean that I'm oblivious or denial. It just means that I know the opposite as well so then choice opera toys the speak good or have a choice to speak there by choice to magnify the good or have a choice magnified by choice to lift up the good stuff in my life or a hobby choice to lift the bad things in my life side. The most people are willing to lift their bad circles badges over the good therefore the field this empower they feel defeated. They feel that word. They feel on April. They feel lack of capacity to rise up to go up to be lifted up but here. I invited today to change their lives. I invited to change the way you speak to change the way you use your words so instead of saying I am extremely busy say I on super duper excited about what I'm doing instead of saying I am extremely sick. One of you saying I'm so happy that are feeling better. You know and talk to yourself. In a way that lifts your life awesome. You know I'm promising to myself. I'm awesome.

Why Martial Arts Is Good To Life
"Good morning, everybody. Welcome to champions for life. This segment today's martial arts Monday. This is where I get to share with you either interviews with other martial arts, or I get the show with you fitness health, wellness, or to share with you what martial arts really does. Why is so good? And today, I wanna talk to you about that. I wanna talk to you about the power that a great martial arts program has. And so it's beyond self defense is beyond fighting is beyond. You being able to perform at a level that is high is beyond the movement is beyond just a kick in a punch, you know, years ago. I used to say I am a doctor of character development. And I believe that today still because when I teach the Marsa LARs if you find a good martial arts program, you're gonna find that the instructor in that program is developed it is well read, it is a person all high standards, and so when you find that embrace because there's a level of leadership excellence in it. And then you make a connection between the movement. A life. And that's what I wanna talk to you about today. I wanna talk to you about why martial arts is so good for life. And I use a lot of the principals to coach people and to help people make decisions in business that will be desired results. So let me give you an example. Right. Why is it a most families when they think about martial-arts? They wonder kids to learn how to be disciplined. Or confident those are the two major reasons why mom was their kids to learn martial arts. Nothing else. And so there's a problem there because a lot of places a lot of schools. Don't teach that intentionally. It actually is kind of like almost like a supposed to happen. But one thing I've learned is that if it's not done intentionally. It would rarely happen by happenstance. In other words, if there's no methodical way of doing of really achieve in that discipline that they want and that confidence that they want. It is very rare that you will get that out of just the practice. And end up. Another problem. The other problem is. Parents need to be educated in how that's done because they're not do kidding. How that done then they think it is just something that's your kicking punching doing cod forms or whatever. Maybe you're a competition school, whatever it is. But they don't have a way of tally. Exactly how is this being developed and how confidence is really be developed. And so how did you? How do you? Then. Close GOP between the parent known what the one for the child, and then believing that you can actually get it done. How do you close that gap? What several things? For one. There has to be a culture. Environment. In your place. That speaks exactly. For example. When you walk in the school. How do you will Kim? How do you want people to walk in? How do you want families to walk in the just walk in the bowel hen or relate, say something create a culture that clearly states? There's discipline in this place. There is excellence in this place. There's a high standard in this place. There is structure in this place. And you know, one thing that new miles want and young people want and this new generation coming up. Want and desire is three major things. Number one. They really want mentorship. They really want to look up to a leader. And they really want that leader to signify success to them then into how that image of excellence. The second thing they want is structure. They want a structured environment one that they can come in another boundaries. Clearly. So that they're able to behave accordingly in that environment. And so the third thing that they want. Is constant feedback. It won't constant feedback. And if you're missing this three things, you're probably surely going to lose the my students. You probably surely going to lose them because they won't understand because what they really want. They're not getting. What the really really want is absent in the environment. So that's why so important. That you have a method. A way in which is step by step written. How you gonna accomplish that? And then you gotta have a way which parents get educated in that method. How're they understanding that what you're doing is actually going to get them what they want? In the days of good talking. And maybe it'll happen through the training itself on that those days are over because. Wor in new generations. And there is no such thing anymore as because I said, so so you have to be careful now that way you have new families coming into your place, right and new people coming into your place. That what you do. And how you do. It speaks louder than what you say. And how you say it. So I raised about Marsa LARs because it does teach discipline confidence self control the nasty right awareness. It teaches so much that if you're able to make a connection between the practice and the development the happens while is being done. Then you got something great going on. And you have a great program that people can understand and people come value because that is priceless. Developing leaders is one thing that is lacking in our country today, you know, people have been hungry for leadership for years, but there's a need for Lee. Leadership now more than ever. And when I say leadership, I say leaders. Understand excellence leaders that own this band standards of living. Leaders out of this panned, really really understand. What is most important in life? And so today, I find. That people are still hungry for leadership. And people are in desperate need of leadership and is evident in this new generation because like I said before. They volume mentoring more than anybody, and they really want feedback constantly. And they want to have that image of excellence of something to roll for of leadership right in front of them. And the one environment that is structured in a way that they can excel. In a way that they can thrive. In a way that they can be creative. So Moore's locks to me those all of that. But even more. So if you have a system away to actually get it done. And so that's what I use. I use those systems. To consistently code mentor train develop people to get to their best place in life to improve their own life to improve their marriages to improve their parenting to improve their focused to improve their lifestyle to improve their health to improve their outlook in life to improve their financial life. And so I really I'm a believer. Of that which martial arts provide. And again, if an only if. The instructor dot is teaching as well read and develop or is into development him or herself and is looking for excellence and high standards that right? There's the person that you want to be your leader to mentor your child your family to mental you and to give you a vision. So that you can go for with our action with specific direction. So you can get to where you want in life. If that is lacking in you're in the wrong place is important that you look for different place. And so. Today. I wanted to share this with you. I wanted to share with you. What is Marshall RS four and how we can really really? Build your life. And I wanted to show with you that that is exactly the method in which I. Us to coach and to mentor and to develop enter equip people families in the areas of parenting in the areas of personal growth in the areas of becoming a better person for themselves and for their family to equip them and to guide them to get into where they wanna go in life. When I do that. I am so confident in doing that because I don't if for many years, and I've seen the results at all kinds of levels. And I am considered an expert in what I do not because I'm so good at the kicking on the punchy on all of that which I pride myself in doing, but because the method in which I use gives that areso desired results to the families, and I take him from the floor, and I use them outside of the floor. And so if you're a needle mentor coach. I am a success. Coach. And I am a consultant. So if you're interested in knowing more of a high can be of service to you and how I can.

Great lead need or referral is going to come from our member diversity demographics. We would love for you to fill that out. Of course it's optional. It's just very helpful for us and understanding exactly who the members of the bar are you also have the ability as to whether or not you want your profile publicly online and on the s._e._c. eight app when it becomes available important here is how often do you want to receive information and emails from the bar.

Episode 54 Are You Winning Every day and In Every Way?
"Chiefs. Good afternoon. How're you? Everybody. This J D C, welcome to champions for life. Today's podcast is about winning winning in your life. I know is not Wednesday. So I'm not allocating winning Wednesday's. And any of that, I share that in my last podcast. But today, it makes sense that is about winning no matter what it is. I wanna share some powerful thoughts with you. That will definitely help you to see life in a different way and help you family your children to succeed in a very big way. You know for years, I realized that we've had our language backwards with things in life. You know, you heard people while I grew out of love. Listen to parents talk about their children. Well, they grew out of it. You know, the truth is that the only thing you grow out of your clothing because you grow if a child wears sized three they grow up, and they grow out of the size three into size four five or six, but when it comes to winning life when it comes to growing, you don't grow out of something you grow into something. So let me explain. Many times. We parents. I want include myself because I used to think this way on till I had this revelation, and it's that, you know, about the way I deal with a lot of parents. So I hear the language so often that is like none. I need to help them on the stand differently. So that their children can actually draw up and become wildly successful. Because you don't grow out of things you grow into them. So let me explain a little further. Right. They're doing activity. They do a sport. They do martial arts. They do something. Right. They go to school. And you know, if they lose entry they say they out of it. Well, let me help you on a different level of thinking. That is how successful people think this is how wealthy people think this is how successful people think this is how people who are Cheever's think our none of the above. And you don't care to be none of the above. And that's okay. You are. Welcome to continue using the language that hold you back from experiencing success at a very powerful level. So. In discipline. You don't grow out of this. When you go into this plan, the reason for that is because when you are introduced to take responsibility you begin to develop your discipline. You begin to develop your responsible behavior to do it you begin to develop Abedian, you don't grow out of obedience grow into Abedian is working process. Right. We don't tell our kids you grew out of obedience. No, no, no, no, no, you grow into it. The more obedient. You become more disciplined. You are. So discipline begins with Abedian. This is very important to understand you wanna become discipline. Then your challenge to learn how to become obedient. And so you grow into that you grow into self discipline. You go into self control, you go you grow into these qualities now. Hour of this qualities, and this is why it's so important one this band that you know, if you want to become fit. Then you need to grow into your discipline. If you want to become successful in your studies you need to grow into your discipline. If you want to become the best husband best wife in it to grow into that you want to accumulate wealth, you need to grow into the discipline of being able to accumulate it. Otherwise, you're gonna go buy your feelings and all of that. And you're gonna fall into the victim language of well my child or I grew out of it. Sometimes we think about we grew out of love. Well, you don't grow out of love you grow in love c-. Love is something that you grow into the longer you with somebody to longer that you're married the love needs to grow, you know. And how do you do that? That is part of your development that is part of a marriage working together to grow in love. I've never ever. Until recently understood why is it that people don't grow into. But they grow out of because they see it that way their perspective is backwards. Their language is being used in a way that holds them back from XL exceedingly or from excelling on another level. So you don't grow out of love with your kids, you grow in love with your 'cause you love the more as they develop as they mature they grow all the different stages. Will why is it different when it comes to marriage, right? You're supposed to grow in love with your spouse. If you're doing the daily things every single day that makes for a powerful relationship, then you're going to grow in love. You're not going to grow out of love. You're gonna grow in love. Right. If you are into your martial arts training, if you're into studying becoming. Successful and cheering your goals and your dreams. You don't grow out of that desire you grow into that desire. You're getting the picture I want to share this with you. Because too many times families people use it wrongly and they used this language member. That language has a value, and the value is based upon the type of language that you use that either helps you or hurts you, and if the line was helps you then is very valuable, but if the language hurts you and has zero to very little value. And so we have to understand how to use it and the type of language. Okay. And so I wanna bring this to your forefront of to the forefront of your mind. I want you to really begin to understand the power of your perspective the power of the language in which you use. And the power which you speak to your children and stop creating excuses for them by saying things like they grew out of it. You know, you don't grow out of something. Okay. If you're playing piano, you know, if you're understanding the concept of that if you understand the discipline of your understanding, the finishing attitude then you don't grow out over you grow into it you become better. Now that doesn't mean that you cannot go into something else. You can surely go into something else and do something else. But the very fact that you grow into it you develop it is that you finish. What you start? You. Don't leave it halfway you don't just stop doing because you grew out of it. And I think that's a big revelation that I just hide and understanding that we don't grow out of things we grow into things. Right. One of these. If you stop growing, you begin to die in the. The the major of life that these you're meant to grow you meant to develop you meant to expand your not meant to stop growing. You're not meant to grow out of something you meant to grow into something you become from birth a baby, then you go into being a child, then an adolescent than a young adult men on adult and then mature goal, and you go into elderly you become an older person an elderly, and so this is the process of life, and that is a mirror image of you understanding the things that you do in life that you grow into them not out of them. And so with that the careful what you grow into right became for. What you grow in on. Because what you say that you you grow out of so thoughts that I mean, you to think about deeply, and what are some of the things that you're aware of that. You have used are kind of language that really have put a believe in you. And in your children, perhaps even in your spouse that are limiting them to be in the best. They can be into being the person they're supposed to become or to grow into something that is been desire. But because of those believes then you have put the brakes on hesitation on your put limited effort on. And so therefore use the language I grew out of it. So one of the things that I like you to do is. Number one be aware. What they are. No more to write them out write down the line words that you've been using and into what you've been using the language on. Is it a sport? Is it a diet is a healthy lifestyle is a relationship is it in your marriage is with your kids is it with your kids on as an activity is it with your kids. Martial arts with your kids and studying is it with your kids? And I'm Bishen, you know. I think that it will get the hints of life. We get to understand that we grow into things. We don't grow out of things. And I believe that the only thing we grow out over our clothing, but we don't go out of love with grew out of compassion. We don't grow out over their standing, right? We are to grow into these things. We are to grow in disipline. We are to grow in self control. We have to grow in confidence. We are to grow in loyalty. We are to grow in all these areas the help of not only in business in life. But in our marriage in our parenting and with our children so until next time guys this J D C never mazing amazing day.

Did You Stop Self Promoting
"Good morning. Happy Friday can win any eight welcome to champions for life podcast. Today's episode is couples in love J D C, and I am and you know. Today's topic like very odd for me to say it. I feel like exactly like that. Because I mean, we just took a dry from New Jersey to Virginia. Visit our good friends. Jody and Agni piles, right and. The hawks right now. And so I look I like a mess, and it's very appropriate topic. Today's topic it is just look her undercover. The right, and well when you say the topic did you start self promoting? Well today, I did. I haven't saved my hair's. Not right. I slept with this shirt in the car while I drove on slept. See I looked like a mess. So this is what you don't want to do if if well there's a time for everything. Right. And so. Can kind of be excused this today is okay. I'll be. For a woman not for the whole day. Just for a moment. Just just doing today because procreate? The point. So what is the point? Like what what is promoting? Well, like, I don't think people realize that they stop. Yeah. Well, everybody's self promotes. Even when I when I realized I thought that that I that I was the most shy kind of person like people see me alive, and they will man you you must love doing this stuff. But I didn't start out like I like it. Now, I don't think I love it. But I like it when I see a face. She's a. It is he loves this. I like this. Now, I didn't start loving or like the point is that that I would force myself to do it because I didn't see myself doing it like this. So I was always thinking about self promoting like I'm telling I'm showing off or bribing by myself or or being late south center or something. That's the way I saw it. But it, but it's not true. Not true. We all self promo. Because actually, that's what attracted me to you is that well, that's the point right there because everybody's self promote. I'm not one point. So people stop like like I've heard comments like this world. You're married me. And you used to like me love me that we for the way I am. And I thought about that. And this this top came about because I started think when I heard that. And I said that's very selfish thing to say because the idea is to improve yourself in a marriage as a person to not let yourself go. You know, some people like, well, let me give you an example of me. Right. If I always shaved. And she met me always shaved. And she met me clean cut. And then suddenly, I get lazy, and I don't wanna shave, and I don't even keep my. Clean or any of that? And I don't even take care. You don't get rid of the tough under years. Will turn into a grizzly bear. So you went from self promoting to stopping the self promotion because I mean women do wear makeup that self promoting as a matter of fact, I was sitting in Fathur meal day, and I was just like did I get to Asia I have to wear makeup every day. You have to self promote everything. But you know, what about you? Wait. What about the way you dress political one at a time because I wanna hit the point hard because I want couples to know that you stop doing the very thing that got your tractor to each other and you stop, and you wonder why the sizzle or that excitement doing the marriage. How stop this is why people cheat right over Gibo or look outside or imagine or pornography sent in or all these different things that create a separation in the marriage, you may be physically together, but you're not spiritually together. And so the self promoting when he stops it creates that separation. And so in speaking about your weight, right? Obviously, your body changes. Obviously, obviously, you get older. I'm not talking about that. I'm speaking about you blatantly. Stop taking care of yourself, which is stopped self promoting is promoting yourself to your spouse, one of you stopped. So this for example, I've always been slim and all that and if I stopped exercising do my martial arts. And I started to eat whatever instead of eating for resolve star eating the way, I feel like eating right? I just feel how three slices cheese and extra cheese on it. I'm whatever, right. And I don't exercise and then three years later, I became two hundred and twenty pounds on my attitude would be well, she has to love me that way she married me. Well, no idiot, not marry you like that. She married you slim. She married you eating healthy. And all that. Now, why did you stop promoting yourself to her? And that's the point on that one. What will be for a woman? You you say the same thing for a woman to same same. Yeah. Because you know, if it's not a medical reason, obviously, you just you just stop working out or you stop just caring. I see a lot of women. They let themselves go. Outwardly appearance wise, you know, they they stopped dressing. Nice day, you know, they stopped doing their nails. They stopped doing their hair. Of things that I see happen a lot, and it could be from pressure from their spouse saying, you know, you don't have to do those things, but that's not necessarily true. Because you know, that's what makes you feel like a woman, you know. And that makes you attractive to yourself which is going to in turn, you know? You know? Attract you to me 'cause you know, let's go to the next. So your memorial I met right or most people I would say I would say ninety nine percent era. Always on your best behavior that soft promotion, and then you stop that. And you're on point with everything would courteous kind. You had nice words, and then suddenly you got comfortable and now instead of saying. The nice things you say that whatever things. And so. Your dating, and it's exciting. Then you're getting married, and you stop dating why continue to date what? Like right now. Like, okay daughter, right. Yeah. She has a boyfriend completely. They're both in love with each other. It looks that way. I don't know. But it looks right and their dating and they're there every day of the week as much as they can help. They get together. Now mind you she teaches martial arts. So she'll and classless nine thirty ten o'clock. They go out on a date. Night. What happens when you get married? You get tired you like going out. But that's what you used to do. So maybe you don't wanna do it every day. But maybe you wanna do it. Maybe wanted like we do. With a Wednesdays. Where is it? I know we could be tire. Right. But I'll say no one is gonna be I'll keep the exciting or the I'm tired. She'll go known as go, and it just changes my state of my right there immediately. Right. That's what we do. And we go up every Wednesday night. If for any reason that Wednesday night doesn't come through for life life happens. Sometimes we then we do it. We move it to Thursday Thursday. We're the Thursday, but we do it. Because why that's what we started to do from the first day we met, and we always did. Tonight. So keep those things going self promoting going if you stop it. There's a change, and let me tell you something is something I learned right? Whenever you make change. That is not an agreement is just accept it or tolerate it. They mountaintop to become a wet. They do not become something. Welcome is pretended to be welcomed. But after a while what happens is one person gets resentful and resentment in a marriage creates a big gap between you and your partner. Right. So before you save I'm gonna I'm gonna stop self promoting make sure is agreement. Right. This oblivion Beverly call too because Yuna fast sexual fast. You just go cut your husband wife out this. And I know what I'm talking alive live dot. Not with you, obviously with you together. See, but I've lived the fact, okay, I'm just going to nothing with you. I'm not gonna hide. I didn't approve that got the notice from God. But I got you that. So the idea is that you both are in agreement. So if there's no agreement. There is tolerance or. Level of acceptance is not agreement. So except. Okay. Go ahead talk a little bit about them part from a woman porno. Listen guys does not to you. Op stains or. Stops hugging. You. Okay. Yeah. So here you ready throw you the buses for you ready. Ooh. Okay. Put on your goody, hold my breath and take the hit. Okay. So talk about south promoting right? Yes. So when we first started dating, and when we first, you know, actually for very long time for years, actually, he you would rub my feet every night every single night without fails. Every single night him, I writer, my right you. Alright, right. I see that. Right about. Si, si. Okay. So all of a sudden now I have to put my feet him and be like, maybe run my feet in home runs. In home runs. Maybe two minutes, and then he'll stop and I'm like my baby. Or, you know. But before it was like, he would just rubbed my fiend. Remedy Motsepe will now. I have to make a date with him in order for him to my feet while I call not upgrading up. If you ask me before he he self promoted himself in that manner, and then he stopped well, and I didn't get the memo, and I do agree. That is true. That is. Excuse was of so tire. There is no excuses. But that was my excuse. I was I'm so tired before when I do that. I wasn't teaching everyday. Like, I teach our I guess you wasn't. Yes. She word. I don't remember that part. No is a matter of fact, you had an hour commute our kids. We were living together. All Casal, we weren't married. It was an hour commute. And I was excited. Yeah. So now, you're not excited anymore. Tell you what. A fringe owed Africa do hitting hard. He's bad for me. Feeling bad for me. So so yes, I agree. This thing keeps moving well. Okay. So I agree. So what's going to be the change the changes? I'll rub your feet more often. But I do Rover the Rover. So that that's that's a former self promoting because then you start and then you're just stop in. That's not it's not. It's not cool. Not cool. Cool. So let's talk about the ones from familiarity. Familiarity. His that finally kills our relationship is like think about is let you having a friend, right and your spas, your friend and right? And so you treat your friend with the up most respect. But then you get so comfortable that was used to be respectful now becomes. What's the word? Three spec. No because you're not really being disrespectful. It's just inconsiderate known. I got I got it. You become the real you. You how'd your you're creating a front. You were looking for a word. That's like an impostor. You know? You'll be calm this person. Okay. So like you start off every houses perfectly clean, everything is everything is into place injuries still unfolded away. There's no dust and dirt nothing. I'd also woman subtly the real she comes out. More. Yeah. And I'm supposed to tolerate now. Complacent complacent. Thank you. Being complacent. You know, even in business, you should never get complacent. You know, you need to be content, but never complacent always go for more. What a shame. If you don't right. And in the relationship, you got to always look for Moore, and even with a friend. I think I think of friendly friendship. Is exactly that you build more instead of less or stead of this. There's gotta be more powerful relationships come in. So the best relationship is between you and your wife, and so Dr relationship needs to be elevated this become better. He cannot stay the same. Because it was staying the same is to go down. So I think you have to set up no Stander that is upwards every single time that you. Yeah. So complacency kills your marriage. Complacent kills you Myers. You used to not complain about the two bays. And now you do why you complain not complain about the toilets. But now you why if that's how you met the person, right? Like, I'm well trained. All right. We'll train miles. And I do it in everybody's home. When I go to the restroom. I never lied the toilet seat up. Never never. And if I see it irks me now like if I see it, right? Because those because he was. Because he was down. It was down. Why my wife it up like it's like don't put it back where you found it. Well, that's part of this backward. All right. So so we call her. Quite a few things. So promotion that deals with self promoting number one, we covered the relationship part the excitement of dating. Why do you stop something more? We call Burt taking care of yourself. Why do you stop it and care of yourself? We covered weight management. Why let yourself go and then become selfish of audit. You gotta love me. Because there's the way I have no less ally. No love you either way. But like, maybe you're not going to be attracted anymore. I mean, you got gotta you got to not be selfish. What I'm saying? You know, then we. Besides just the outward appearance, but what are you doing to your internal parts to then then heart disease comes in? High blood pressure comes in diabetes comes in. And then then what like is that fair? Like, I don't want that to happen to me. But is that fair that you have to live with that burden because I didn't take care of myself? Either PS on. I just wanna make sure is good to get closer comfortable clothes like that. But complacency is different than being comfortable. I hope that makes sense, right? I think we get we get because I don't want somebody come back later and tell me, you know, you said view hand any questions or you need clarification by means reach out to us. And we're here for voices getting better. I think it's getting better. I have nothing to do with that. I had a different voice moment. I've just being funny. All right. Bianca?

We'll get into the sculptors on and many times we don't realize it because we don't recognize the Voices Belen wish we don't recognize what is doing in house speaking to us on what conspires. What excited to happen that without even knowing it. I gave you the analogy of a snake. You know a snake is like on the floor. And you're walking and you're looking forward and suddenly the snake Bites you the same way happens with the culprit. Oh it's suddenly bites you and there you are in the comfort zone and all these things are holding you buy and how do we get out so now you know how you get it now you know? What's the voice now? You know what language it uses one of the worst that it uses. Now we're going to learn how to get out right. These are the things that are keeping you in what you need to go to get out okay. So in my opinion the number one thing that keeps people in the coffers is fear fear is holding person back because is in my opinion. The number one thing now. Fear is ally right. Fear is also a mistaken identity. Alright fear is mistaken identity. We started to behave in fearful manner. We know that's not who we are and so call zone. The number one thing that's holding was back is fear as a result of why a mistaken identity right now. The reason for that is because we're not to be fearful right if you give yourself permission to break out of it you'll realize that you have that all door open. But the illusion of fear had point to you to behave in your mistaken identity. Fear Salt we WANNA break through the years. We don't want to stay here. We WanNA stay in power so I wanNA remind you the fearless warriors lift to win. Don't live to be fearful. They live to win. And so you're a fearless warrior and I'm inviting every parent to join him in this movement of being a fearless warrior. Okay so the first thing will end. Not Fear Is Not Yours K. Fear is not yours is yours not fear faith because your maker your Creator made you to possess you with the spirit of power for Mine. So it isn't fear it's faith the second thing that holes you in the conference on his lack of gratitude you know when when you're grateful and you demonstrate gratitude Fear appears so you need to develop an attitude griped. When wearing a grateful state fear disappears. Fear is absent in the presence of grout. Why can you see in your life that you are grateful for? Could it be your marriage? Could it be your children? Couldn't be your family. Could it be your health? Could it be that you woke up? Could it be that you have a business? Could it be that you're wealthy? Could it be that you have a lot of friends while no matter how great or how little what are we gonNA develop an attitude of gratitude which areas of your life? Do you believe right now. You are grateful for. How can you demonstrate dry to in your life more often if we practice the attitude of gratitude every Single Day Molin? By moment the more we took the better weekend be and the more we experienced these and the less will experience fear because of fears not yours though he may call is not assess. You all right. Why did you believe that gratitude is essential in your life? This is something you wanna ask yourself and already the reasons I've given you are plenty to say I'm GonNa get an attitude arrive hurting someone say a long time ago as low as above ground is a good day. They find reasons to be grateful. And you will. Experience Zero fear. The third-inning holding back is the inability to face our giants. The inability to face our giants. So why did you develop the ability to go right into the face of your giants and defeat him? So may I remind you that David he ran towards Goliath is federal running away from Goliath so you ran towards him then. He gave him his best shop. You need to say face your giant bull giving your best shot being cited at your opportunity to kill your giants man also right there. You know some people. Don't how chance you checks the moment you understand that you have a giant face them head on wrong Gillam Erotica be ruthless with that right. Remember there are more for you than against you is something very powerful. Remember because that'll keep in your comfort zone with being there's more people against you or issues or problems or giants than there are for you but also reminded this when they were forced or faced the opposition of the young men give fearful United Aski- to open the young man's eyes so he may see that there are more for you than against the we saw then he was a PC realizes more people. There's more of a bigger army with you and the is against you this overwhelming alone and that's not true. Go listen to that. That's a mistake in a debt. You must know that the very reason that you're alive is because there are more for you than against you. So basically the giants on slater claim your victory who are giants. Perhaps you're like police your doubts. Perhaps you're mistaken identity. Perhaps the feeling that you're not good enough or that you don't have the right things or you don't have the right education or you don't have the right friends and so on and so there's so many of the right but you need to identify them and run towards them with confidence on slay them one by one. That's not negotiable. Or it will control you and keep you dot com for the third thing for thing that holds you back in the comfort zone is your need to control everything and so you WanNa stop controlling. Give it up man. Give up the control right. What Are you controlling? And most of what we want to control his the outcome for example. I don't want to fail. I'm GONNA move scooping.

And today, I posted this morning on fear. And today we're GonNa talk about yard. How exciting is that? All while I sleep a little wine right here. Yes ma'am the power couple. Got My young lady here. Hello everybody I am channel. And I am happy to be here. So I just have really quick question like they j DC. What are you talking about fear? He's talking about fear of like insects are you talking about fear of lake, his covid nineteen like what kind of fear are you? Referring to. Well I WANNA talk about the fear power most people you know fear. When you? Recognize ear I like you make an assessment of life and you say, okay, I'm going to fear. Is Hard to detect what you don't. WanNa Miss, as you are fearful. Fear what it does is that a power license? And fear whole to walk. And you know what? You don't know how to deal with fear. You will make you surrender. I've seen a lot of people give up. And give into the fear and so when they do that. Their life is surrendered ear, which is not what you want. You know in this often on them ick. Kobe nineteen. The media, a lot of fear or else. The elections. Or a lot of fear. And why is that well because if you don't know the alcohol. And you don't know who you are and you don't know who's you are. You will surrender to fear in other words. Your Life will be available fear everything you your face it on your ears all. Scared to the way, be scared to take a chance. Scare to. Look at opportunity because all you see is. Here our license. All around. So how do you then overcome fear up? Quite, a ways. I'm Chris Gives I want to speak about what God says about. First. And then I will speak to you about practical ways which can overcome here. So the first thing is that God made us not the believe is if you understand got his life. And whose you are. But he made us with the speed of power. Over, sound mind. So that means. That every time I operate him here. I'm not operating in my right eye sanit. A making God a liar. ooh I. I did see that. Sometimes. We make God a liar because we wanNA be right. Because we're you might say. Or do your field. Well. Yes. I understand but you gotta go from Glory to glory in graduate to the level of fearless. Because you don't have a spirit, you have a special power. Out of a sound by. Lots of I think. And Rick who you are and who's you. The second thing I would say. Is that. This. Books written about this. All these feel the fear allude. Anyway you know. Don't let fear. Stop you working through. The acronym stuff like. That's cute. So. Then what do you do? Right? I have found. Best thing to rely on your mater. Lean on him. My Creator. God. And operate through him. because. The Bible is very clear. I can do all these priceless strengthens me. There's no weapon that is. I saw prosper and I moved his every day seriously like. I live this every single day. A lot of changes in my life. And So I recognize one fear will stepping in you know. I recognize what to do with fear. And so I went to my maker. My Daddy. Father. My heavenly father. By the way. You don't have a spiritual father. To get one. Because you need a spiritual father just like you have A. Physical father. Unit a spiritual father. And then need your heavenly father. And that's another topic there but. For now understand that you need one. So, what are what are some ways that somebody can recognize and come fear like? Somebody who's like? Overweight. Right and they're scared will one way to recognize the operating fear is when you're thinking too much. Thinking is evidence of fear. In all because you're thinking I'm thinking I'm thinking and thinking what are you waiting for? and. You rationalize that you're waiting for the right on the opportune time the opportunity to show off on all of that. But the truth is that you are the even. You are. You make it happen. If it's true that the Bible says. I believe one hundred percent is. The Bible says that you hopping given everything. Then, I have everything to make things happen. and. I've been given the power to create and I'm GonNa create with God. So what do I want to cook me? That's why I've spent time on long. Maker. And hear from him. And go creatively is what he wants me to go create. Those have. Plans for me. Good Success Bland for me. Then he wishes that my soul prosperous everything else about the prospers. Did I have to believe that. I do. And so that's way overcome here at the realize. When you're operating fear. So fear have to be. Not. Above. Fear not where you don't. Rush Year. Okay. So let's just say that you believe in God and you know you don't have that dialogue. Or you don't think you have the dialogue with God. She be able to be like. Okay. God. I know that you said level by you know like we we understand that that's in the word you know that God has plans prosperous and you know God is with us all the time. They'll never leave us nor forsake us like all that great stuff right now. Like, like what what if you don't actually hear an audible voice of God you don't recognize. God's voice in your life. The reason why you don't recognize the voice in your life is because you're not connecting with the voice. The Bible is clear and says my sheep. Hear me. My sheep. No. My voice is kind of like you know your voice is obvious voice, right? No. I get that I get that. But that's like that's like a whole process that you need to get into you need to learn to hear you need to. You know what I'm saying you spent with goddess intimacy right I want to spend time with. And nor the Voice of God in your life. Right God God is always speaking got his always moving so therefore if you're not moving. Really not hearing. He goes the only way to here is for you the more Dick Auction. So you cannot say that you here are not enough. Right. So in order for you this. My my dad taught me that. Got told me Dr Mark. Right as my God right. So what happens is that if you're not the only way to. Do it faith goes by hearing by the word of God faith is action basically, the action is dead. So therefore, you say I heard God but you know nothing about it you have no faith. And if you have no faith, you're actually dead. WHOA. that. I don't WANNA be. Dead. I want to be alive. So therefore, I want to action every single day action what the accident, what kind of action. Arch Lagat says do this anew that's obedience. Right, but you know what? You're not spending time with God because you will recognize his voice. You know it's kind of like a kid that doesn't know his daddy's learn how to do those things as why trying to get by spending time alone with. That is the way you learn to hear the voice of God and a soothing and his powerful and is encouraging and his dynamic and you know. You, get recognized I've always wanted to spend time. How can you not know the voice of Guy Only because you know spend time with God. By the way. Spending time alone. One of alone is not really spending time alone guy just to have the word of God. Bible Word Oh God and. With that word, you're going to hear God's speak to you. Your spirit yearns to be connected to got so therefore. That spirit has no fear. You gotta get. So many people. Fear. And what do they do you fear for? One number two, you misinterpret number three, you get paralyzed. Or you blame number five into nothing number six you don't think you're good enough number seven. You don't know who you are number. You don't know who you are number nine. You Call US everything in Your Life? All that stems from ear number ten you don't recognize opportunity because in the moment of crisis. Is Opportunity. You Know God is moving right now. Got His doing so much right. There is so much opportunity right now. Oh Man I wish I could do more. I WANNA do Moore's. Asking God to give me more. Ways to the more. I mean we'll have twenty four hours. Some of them. Some maximizing. Someone was don't even know that we got it. Will will happen is that I WANNA maximize my time One of the ways is to spend time with God. You don't have to spend with if you don't spend time with. You'RE GONNA be in your flesh and your pledge is nothing corruption. Ashes can ally exclusion.

So what type of team want to start with? There's so many. But off the top of my head without thinking about which is the first one that we start with. You know, one that I see a lot of couples with and some of this deep like the bedouin thing is how to keep your eyes for your spouse. You know that will be one. A lot of the other one is how to honor your marriage. The other one would be keeping yourself on his without pretending to be honest. There's there's a lot because a lot of a lot of couples, you know, when they get to a certain time together and hanging with the wrong influence in your workplace may not hang you know, you may not be hanging around with couples not honor God and on marriage. You know, you've heard the jokes. You know? I guess you're married. You know, those Deconda sending jokes that put down marriages know chat again to that Poland chain that kind of stuff, and and you know, that that is that is an insult to got us created when it comes to marriage. And we don't wanna do that. We want to honor docile that we can be fulfilled. Right. And we honor our marries are union honoring God, and you know, will continue to bless marriage the relationship, and I mean, it's just amazing. I I don't have all the worst right now. But his powerful. So there's plenty of topics that we're going to be like endless because they all connected one way or another, and we'll reminders and and reason oh. Why are you married? You know, you got married because we love them Google on. There's almost more deeper things why you actually got married. The purpose of what your marriage L. There is a purpose. People don't understand it. But there's a purpose to the marriage that that God put it together. You know is not about I love you. And that say it is not about, you know, all the perks that you get deeper than that marriage is is is like a perfect union that got together for an amazing purpose that he is through you in your marriage. You know, so it's almost like a business contract. It's like is a covenant actually deeper than that is like is like a deep rooted promise that must be fulfilled. So that you stay in relation to gather and in relation together with God, so deep, and it has a lot of implications. And. This lot to learn and kill way to share those stands get deep. We're going to get. We're going to go deep sea DC. Yes. So unexciting knows you know. So we're starting this off here at our house, but we're also going to do cruise trips.

Giretto Pinot Grigio 2018
"Wine dot com. Day with the wine a five dollar and forty nine cent wine from all these today. We have a penal grease yo the good Recco vinegary show from della benishi in north east Italy, which is in the area that includes everything but also L DJ, which is where the more expensive peanut gross come from. But this is a D C wine, which means it conforms with all the rules and the regulations of the region where you normally get GP wines. Which don't so this is kind of a step up and it still only five dollars and forty nine cents for it being breezy from Italy. And it's from all these, and you go all these wine in new shouldn't say that. Because in Europe, all these is the bang for the buck value wine shop, if you want, you know, you wanna get a bottle of wine that that hits above its price point, you go to all these now in the United States, they you know, the area where all these cells wines as just a couple of shows. No big deal doesn't look like much, but they sell tons of wine in Italy and everywhere else in Europe, and they have tons of context with top. Oh, why producers in the region, so they can get good European wines at a good price? So don't go turn your nose up at all these they can do well enough. I forty nine I'm, you know, you're getting an everyday wine. It's not going to be the, you know, second be a wine that Natura socks off. But it's going to be something that will you'd wanna drink when you're having lunch, or you know, you have a light dinner because that's what people in Europe. Do you know that states? We everybody thinks oh, it's under ten dollars. You can't drink it. Many get that all the time. It's it's too cheap. Cheapo. I don't wanna drink that. But in Europe, where they drink whatever when they have people who are in a culture where they drink wine. A may drink wine for that with with launch. They drink wine with dinner every single day, and they're spending twenty bucks a bottle on wine. If for every meal, they're going. Broken a hurry. Because some point you can buy a top line Mercedes with price. You're spending on a wine, you know, a year. And that's no one's going to do that that silliness, and they don't do it. And they pay just a couple of bucks. And here's a five forty nine wine which goes, oh, that's cheap. Now. This is what they drink in Italy in this is what the drink in Italy in Italy. It's five forty nine. This is the price shipped over here. And you know, all these taken cuts, though, all these cells in Europe, they're taking their Cup there too. But it's still it's an inexpensive wine, and it's not that bad at I'm gonna take a sip because you know, it's wine. Why would you not take a sip? Not. That's got decent flavor. Doesn't have too much city the leading. Agrees show from auto dis eighteen dollars and kind of an acid bomb. I mean, you pretty much have to have some sort of food with it. I mean, you need a cheese plate you need something just to kind of cut the acidity. And and that's the wrong with that. Because that's what it's made for bump. You know, you Merican don't always walk around gay and cheese with them. So it doesn't always work. You know? So you'd sometimes you just drinking wine to drink wine being a gritty shows of pretty nice wine to drink specially in the summertime. It's light. A lot of citrus things such notes in it. This one is maybe almost eight and then some. Some grapefruit. So maybe Chris green, apple take another sip. Take another sip touch a Lima. Maybe some peach pear, not anything, overly ripe and juicy. But all in there in the mix, it's medium to light, bodied wine. It's said it is. Okay. You can you can have it with food. You can drink it on its own. Now, the city says a little bit. But nothing that's going to put you off drinking it and test tastes good enough where you would actually pour yourself another glass. It's five forty nine. It's useful. It is very European beauty drink a wine and his price range. Don't fall for the marketing that says oes you're going to cook a meal you need, you know, thirty three dollar wine 'cause they're not doing that in Europe where they do this for decades.

What the CDC knows about Zombies
"Welcome to hidden history. I'm your host. Ken crumb today. What the C. D. C. knows about zombies? y'All oh come on zombies really yes really. History shows that the word Zombie came out of the Congo and means spirit of a dead person used in Louisiana UCI creole. The word describes person that has died and was brought back to life without speech or free will it seems so. ZOMBIES are coming increasingly crushingly more popular pop culture as time goes on countless movies books video games and even TV shows based on Sambas dated back to nineteen thirty two. When the first feature length Zombie Phil White Zombie came out? Could have you ever wondered where the images and ideas of the reanimation automation of dead people came from rising from the grave rotting pasty.

The Co Padre. The subjects be prepared for their descent. World of zombies would appear to die insofar as their heart rate would slow to to stop their breathing. Patterns would be greatly subdued and their body temperature would significantly decrease the public thinking that the person was dead would bury him or or her as if they were corpse they would then be exhumed still alive by the Bogor and although there physicality remained intact or memory would be erased and they would be transformed into mindless drones though still living they remain under the bulk.

Episode 56: COVID-19, Operating as an Essential Business in a Time of Crisis
"Other this recording on April six twenty twenty Kovic nineteen has affected over two hundred countries with world cases exceeding one point two million over forty states in the US have issued. Stay at home. Orders which in most cases includes the closure of non-essential businesses. And yet here you are. You've been deemed essential. Now what I'm your host putting Conway and on today's episode of connection experience. We're GONNA talk about how to react quickly developing a business continuity plan on the go and how to adapt to the new normal. When there's no official playbook to pull from I have with me. Esteemed guests Steve Others Mark Welfare and we are going to tackle this and more on today's episode of connection experience. A Good Morning Steven Mark. How are you doing great? Thanks also have rob McIntosh here with me. Good Morning Good Morning. Monday may mark actually welcoming you back to the podcast today Steve. It's your first time so we just want to give a chance to introduce and reintroduce yourselves to our audience this morning. Everybody thanks for having us on today. I'm Mark Waugh forced. I am the director of Technical Services and solutions at the Technology Integration Distribution Center in Wilmington Ohio teams. Cover all of the upfront part of the business. The imaging the provisioning technologies in Solutions Act. Thanks to he's not argue do mark yeah he does a lot more. Believe me good morning. Everyone I'm Steve. I'm the vice. President of our which is our technology integration and Distribution Center and. Let me just explain a little bit of what that means our technology? Integration Centers. Really a made up center of our configuration services that we provide solutions to our customers as well as our depot services and as well as the services that we provide out of our distribution center. So it's more than just a warehouse operation so we really put more emphasis on the technology. Integration piece of this and then distribution center says where we get the T. I. D. C. at Art John. Yeah and what that. Thank you for that Precursor using the acronym T I D C throughout this podcast. So good to level set so everyone knows. Everyone loves to talk in acronyms but doesn't always they are so. I'm really excited to have you guys on the podcast today. Now it goes without saying you. Guys have probably had a busy past few weeks. I am I putting that lately or not. You're putting it lightly penny you know. Mark was on the podcast back in. December. I think it was episode thirty. I'm going to quiz myself here. I think it was thirty one or thirty nine nine. Th One mark you were talking a lot about just general capabilities of the T. I. D. C. How you had about a thousand setups to do configurations at any one time and just your the regular volume you guys were doing. What sort of changes have you seen in your day to day business? That really is unprecedented. Because of what's going on today. Apparently there's been a big shift in the type of business that we're doing the type of configurations were doing currently with the covert nineteen pandemic going on. It's really switched from government to healthcare orders. Those are the front line individuals that are out there battling this pandemic and we have been seen a gigantic crease. Healthcare REQUESTS EMERGENCY REQUEST FROM MULTIPLE STATES NEW YORK. Of course and that's really been a big switch and change in our business. If I could kinda dig into that a little bit more. You know we do a lot of things that I think normal people. Think of when Lavar T. I. D. C. is maybe doing simple or complex imaging configuration services installation services. What kind you know without divulging too. Many company secrets are customer secrets. What kind of configurations? And what kind of support are you giving the healthcare field today? That maybe is different from what you were doing. Four or five months ago for them. What were getting a lot of quest for his be able to get the physicians and support personnel home. So we're starting to do a lot of telehealth telemedicine. Anything does environment set up for the physicians? Nurse Practitioners those people that are in the field that would be better suited to work out of their homes. So we're providing solution said everywhere from sending them network devices. Tablets microphones keyboards monitors to get them setup. So it's Kinda like we talked about in the past location in a box. This is really getting them. Set Up for Tele Med out of their homes. So it's like the location location out of a box for them up. Get it all ready to go so that we can get that equipment to them so that they can be helping the communities in the individuals in the US the take care of them to telemedicine. Yeah that's awesome. No one of the things that I have you know Robin I have said this on a few different episodes but just in conversations with people. You know what's happening right now is sort of kind of that very pivotal moment where we're starting to see all of the technical capabilities that we had with technology with managed services and with configurations and all that type of stuff. We've all had the capability to do this. But this is kind of been that pivotal point that's now worsening people who take advantage of all of those capabilities that have been in existence and so was TA DC set up and prepared for this. Is this kind of where you not waiting for this to happen. But sort of waiting for the need to present itself and see guys could kind of ride in like nights in your shining armor and sort of save the day or have you sort of had to bob and weave and set up new capabilities with what's happened. You have the technology in the request. You know this is in like you said. There's no playbook for how are having to deal with this. You know there's nothing been designed on you know. What do you do when you have? You know forty two out of the fifty states and shelter in place or stay at home all right you know that brings up some complexities for us at the T. I. D. C. Needed the whole. If you talk about it the social distancing those aspects of trying to keep our employees safe now. There's a lot of challenges that we had to put in place. That weren't there before I'm GonNa win. There is no stay six feet away from each other. Texts can be working right hand in hand next to each other so there are some challenges that we had to look at when this first came out. So when the social distancing requirement came out take keep everybody six feet apart we had to change how the looked and how the lab actually produced equipment without of our facility we went around and actually create it mark off and markers within the lab with red tape with X.'s. Though it tells employees stay in these locations to keep yourself safe so we had to do lot of internal processing and changes within the facility to adapt to this new. Maybe what we want to call it. The new normal rate right now. That's a good point. I kind of am coming out from the sense of what you've been able to do. You know from a capability standpoint. But now you have all of these. I think on the last episode you over two Hundred Square feet of space which we think would be easy to to distance ourselves but you've got work areas and workstations and you've got your laser engraving and your configuration lab and I know you're starting your your pod setup and so how has you know has the need to social distance to kind of keep your employees safe. What kind of impact is that had on? You know your ability to do business within the TI IDC. Hasn't really affected us at all penny that Steve can attest to this. With some of our shortage we have had some employees at you. Know if the self quarantine of stuff like that. Just because of their health concerns and things even with that occurring. We're still hitting and producing the same amount of numbers that we were doing before. This activity occurred so our productivity is still there. Were still able to produce. The amount of services is solutions to our customers. Whether it's still be location at a box whether it's complex network figuration or the more still able to do that. We do have the forty two thousand square feet facility and you would think like you said. It's easy to keep people apart. But human nature is to kind congregate next each other right and we've had a separate that but the team with our capacity load planning and the solutions and the team coming together the war with all the sales teams knowing some of our priorities. Our government in healthcare I get those solutions out the door and those were a mix of everything. It's everything from a simple chromebook still too complex. You Know Hospital or physician office in a box that we have to get them that equipment so it's very complex. Yeah I just want to say. I think it's amazing too. You know again I was out to that warehouse and I see all that goes into putting words together for customers and all of the integration that you guys do I mean it's very complex and with everything that's been going on with covert and folks you know moving to a remote setting that includes connection as well so we had an amazing amount of disruption within our company and I peering from Department Department to Department that nobody missed a step and I'm listening to D. C. Now you guys did not Nissen step. I mean I don't know if people can grasp the how incredible that is when you're running a business and running into that to be able to keep at a very high level for your customers. I mean I. I hate to toot our own horn but I mean I. I think that's impressive in any other company out there. That's doing that. I mean thumbs up to you guys to. That's really impressive. Because people you know we were designated as mission critical people relying on US and again it. Just like wow. That's those are awesome stories. So thank you. I have to say as a connection employees and not to pile on to Robin Guys. So many pats on the back but even as an a connection employees. Very seamless going from in the office to home. I think our our leadership a definitely handled it well and I think you know if I were to take a stab at why this may have gone so smoothly for many of us. Says you know this wasn't just you know. Oh today. We'll just decide to do this. You guys had to really put together a team in order to figure out how to tackle this what the next steps are going to be and no a popular term. We're using now is task force. Oh did you guys put together a task force you know. What did that look like coming together? And you know. How are you making these day to day decisions? So you have that continuity opinion. That's a great question and I'll take that mark. Mark has done an incredible job keeping the technical side of this going and moving. This eluded to but penny you're right you know back in the what it was you know. It seems like a decade ago. But back around April ninth. When this all started to unroll right you know we were in the forefront of this in a way that we were starting to see you know. Should we be traveling? You know we were getting ready to send a deployment of my leadership team up to Merrimack to do a e one testing. We've had to make some quick decisions on. Should we ground those people and a lot of this started rolling pretty quickly but the criticality part of this? That was really something that we thought it was. It was coming out of that weekend so we grounded everybody on Friday and we had a lot of discussions over the weekend with the leadership team and talking about. You know what's GonNa Happen? You know when it starts to roll out more and and we do become essential and start. Thanks to close like Mark. Alluded to it was critical. And I'm not gonNA speak just me but I thought it was critical that we deploy a task force internally to the DC that went parallel with Tim and his leadership team and Brian and his support. But it was a really on the ground level right so you had this battle that you facing on the ground level and I can tell you if we didn't have that task force place. Come that Monday the sixteenth. We would not be where we're at today. And what I mean by that when the team got together as a leadership and we started formulating our plan. You know things like social distancing that mark was talking about those were terms that nobody heard of before we we were trying to understand how we deploy that. How do we communicate? How do we get our associates knowing what that meant and not that you have this emotional piece as a leader that you start saying well you have to have empathy for the employees and you have to understand their emotions and what they're going through? They're concerned about as the place on. Clothes are their health issue. Are they going to be able to work and get paid? I mean a lot of our employees are on a week to week. Basis on their paychecks. Right and that's there's nothing wrong with that. That's the environment wearing wearing a direct labor force environment production environment so when we started putting the taskforce together we had to know that we had to support our customers on the essential piece of this right because we play a key role in ended up but we also had to make sure we were supporting our employees. So we when the announcement came out we put the taskforce together. We made a lot of decisions right off the Bat alluded to we stopped all conference room meetings. We re organized the cafeteria to have it social distancing right. We made shifts available to all the employees so we reached out this before we knew we were in a a stay at home state right so we were doing all this before. That guys kind of Jerome. Stay at home state. We we've we. Did we reorganized the center? We brought in a industry stirrer cleaning company to come in and D- Fog and clean over the weekend just to make sure. We were all trapped in ready for Monday when it came so when Monday came boom. Guess what happened a stay at home or or it happened. So we were already cleaned prepped. We already had communications out to employers around social distancing now where we as far advances where mark was talking about a few minutes. Go No but we were. We were getting out and formulating. The team meets every day at eleven for an hour. We talk about everything. We talk about employees. We talk about who's in quarantine who's went out sick and so that happened but the real key to the testament of the leadership team at Ti DC. That really I think was parallel to us. Still maintaining our customers orders. And we're at today is that we were hit with a double whammy. We were at a stay at home on Day. One right so that already. Everybody freaked out a little bit employees state. Because you know we were considered essential so people were already concerned about coming into work but we did have somebody at that same time. That was working in the lab for as temporary associate test positive to cope in nineteen. So if she was out corentin before we did the cleaning over the weekend so that cleaning over the weekend really helped us stay operational so we had to go through legal we had to go through the CDC. We had to go through all this talk to what we did and what steps we took. If we want have been proactive as a leadership team taking those steps we probably would have had our facility shut down for multiple days why we started to put together get an industrial team. That was probably already attained by another company at that time probably because of all the state home so we may have been in a delay. There could've been a multitude of things that arose from there so it was critical that we had this place in a in a New Testament to the team. And what we were doing to instill this because I can tell you. We faced a lot of dilemma. When that double-whammy hit we had people walking out of the facility. I mean we did. We had people say no. I'm not staying here. I'm scared I don't know what to do. I have a family. I have kids at home and we had. We didn't have a mass walkout but we had what mark we were operating at forty. Three percent of our workforce stiffer the first day or thirty seven percent thirty seven percent and then we all these customers calling us going. What are you guys doing? Are you staying open? How're you doing this? What are you doing? And what Mark was Lou to we. Were already in the mindset of Saint Okay. Let's get her operations in order. Let's get our production environment. Set for the social distancing and get us are set and give the employs a sense of calmness a sense of comfort knowing that we cleaned have the cleaning crews come in during the week we were able to bring the cleaning crews in Monday Tuesday and Wednesday the be there with the employees why they were spraying cleaning and disinfecting give them a sense of calmness right. Hr did a tremendous job. What they did is a really reached out to all employees and they started coaching them and talking to them. About what we're doing and what's happening. So they brought back some employees as well too so that was a big effort in the beginning. Yeah and that's been one of the things where everything happened at one time so it was. I don't think there was really a way to be ahead of the game so to speak. But you know where you guys met early where you brought in that cleaning crew where you sort of said all right here is. We don't know what's going to happen on Monday. But here are things that we can do that if something were to happen we can point to okay. We brought that in. We clean this. This is the guy line we're following. This is what we're looking to do. And did you find after you know that initial sort of fear from employees? That had some hesitancy coming into the office. Did you find that once you were communicating out? What you were doing what steps you were taking how you're protecting your employees that that sort of fear level started to reduce and they started to feel comfortable back in their workspace or are still sort of walking that line of Discomfort. But I need to come to work. That's a great question I can tell you and I'll let mark to some of this stuff I can tell you. We haven't stopped that progression right. We're looking at every day and every day we're getting more and more employees but we literally had like a flat line for about a week so we had to as a team. Say What can we do more? And what was really good penny that I don't know if you guys heard out in connection yet but we went out and retain to emt paramedics certified in the state of Ohio to do our fever testing. We have every employee now starting last Monday or last Tuesday. Excuse me go through fever testing before they go into the facility by professional. Emt So what? It is sort of like a drive through. We put up a medical tent outside of our facility. We have the nurses come out to the vehicle. They roller window down. They give him a thorough scan to the forehead or behind the ear. Get a temperature. Reading the temperature is below the one of one hundred four point four. They go on and they parking to go back in the work that has now started marketing. Test as he's been keeping track of our attendance that has brought back now. We're up over sixty three almost seventy five percent attendance back because that is starting to give that sense of okay. The rest of the employees that are in here least. Oh heff fevers. Or we're all sort of equal right. I love because I got gotTA. I'll say honestly I I went to. This is moving so fast and I went to the grocery store on Friday afternoon and I had to leave. It seemed so one incredibly depressing. Everyone's walking around with masks and gloves. There's places you can stand and places you can't stand the looks of other people that are around you. You can see that people are scared to be around other people and that makes us like. I'm not super scared to be around other people but seeing other people scared to be around me something. I've never experienced before my whole life and in another time we would think that coming to work and they're taking my temperature before I go into the office that something that would raise someone's fear and alarm but we're in a whole new world where that is okay. Everyone around me is healthy. As far as I know they're not just coming to work because they need their paycheck. They're clear they're safe. I feel safe. And all that is stemming from a leadership team that is recognizing that while we need to do what's good for the company and we need to maintain of business and a level of output. At the end of the day our employees are really important to our business and are what make our business and we have to think about how. They're going to be comfortable in order to feel comfortable to come to work. No let me. Just give a shout right there. Real quickly to that to tim. Mcgrath and Brian Hicks. We went to them with. What can we do for employees from a financial perspective right? What can we do to you know? We don't WANNA call it hazardous pay right. We don't we don't want to do that. It's not we don't feel we're in a hazardous position because we've done a lot of things practically to keep it safe. Let's give them appreciation pay and Tim. Mcgrath and Brian Hicks and the leadership team signed off on three dollars. More an hour for all of our employees for appreciation pay as well as we were able to freezer incentives at one hundred percent. So we didn't have to worry about it. They meet your quality or meet their productivity. Because people were doing different roles people were moved around the operation so that was an extra couple of dollars an hour so so the employees. I think Phil appreciated that way that we're investing in them knowing that they're coming here doing essential duty for us in our country. I love that so much and I. We're seeing more and more leaders. Come out with sort of that. Mindset a penny that when you talk about Calming Individuals Data Calming Staff. Down THE LEADERSHIP TEAM. Steve and others. You know we're around every single day keeping our social distance and just talk to the staff. That's air showing concern thanking them for being there every single day every day. Stephen I and others go down to the lab and out to the distribution center and talk to the individuals just to see how they're feeling see how they're doing an echoes a long way with building that trust that we are taking care of them right and how we're going to do this and when. Steve mentioned you know that that first day we dropped thirty seven percent the team members from all the other departments of my to work than shipping or worked in receiving that used to work in the Tech Center. They all volunteer to go down and go down there so we can keep the production rates and everything flowing as we should within the facility without putting undue stress on the other individual so I had people from the pods team you know the teams have built the images going down and working back as attack and the facility. We had people that are in corporate services going out working in shipping and receiving scanning devices unpacking boxes so we came together as a team and as a connection family to be able to ensure that our customers were still going to get the high quality and the products out the door and penny. Let me talk to about that market so modest. But but think about this. We were asked to force all our people that could work from home. The work from home right and my leadership team has the ability to work from home directors level in that. They could be working at home and doing that but none of them were. I couldn't get him out of the building. Let's put it that way so I basically told Dick and Brian. Hey Look my leadership team is staying with the ship. They're gonNA stay here every day and they're not leaving. I think that really showed the employees that. Hey look if they're here right and listen. You know you could say what you want to say. But when the communication came out that most of connection was going remote and some of our sales force officers were closing. Our employs down. Here didn't take that very well right. They they should have been sent home and they should pay but we had to really communicate and share with them like mark alluded to going out on the floor embracing their questions working in conjunction with HR. I mean HR has done a tremendous job on this too. I mean Gretchen and they have done a tremendous job because this is unprecedented for them as well. I mean they're used to handle a couple issues a day right. I've seen fifty forty people coming through the office right just asking questions. What happens if I get sick? Do I get paid house? My insurance where my husband just got laid off. What can I do? You know all these questions and I can tell you that. We're smiling his on Monday. Because this is fun right. This is something I want to get the communication out there because it's important but this is weighed on all of us. It's weighed on the leadership team. And it takes a toll when you have the responsibility of over two hundred something employees on your shoulders as a leadership team in. You're doing everything you can to make sure when they come to work. They leave the same way they came. And that's healthy right and you don't know what they're doing outside of the four walls. You're hoping that they're staying with new standards. That are set by dewine. He's been doing an incredible job in Ohio. But you're hoping that they're meeting those requirements so when they come back to work the fever test is a big one. That will let us know that they're doing that right. They're falling all the social distancing and doing what they supposed to do to doing but you know we also have a critical role on the other side and that's meeting. What mark was saying their healthcare? Our government contracts. Let me share a quick story with you that I got shared by Carl Who is responsible for the Abbot contract? I don't know if you heard the fifteen minute lab test The the new thing that Abbott labs is set up for the government. They're doing the fifteen minute Kobe. Testing it's it's revolutionizing the testing and really allow me more statistics. Go up those computers that were sent to them to do the molecular testing and do the testing on these kits were directly set the IDC and some pretty good story and mark. Yes so that was a big part. Presidents talked about at ABBOTS. Been in the news with everything so our computers were sent deployed and not only is what mark was alluding to the provisioning. And what we're doing from a solution to our customers the rapid deployment of equipment and things that you talked about earlier that the Marquis share to that people from the offices. We're going in the warehouse. Just putting their bodies out there scanning putting devices on the belts getting them through right. That would never happen if we went to came together and got out of our comfort zones and said work and we help and that was all being deployed and logistically controlled out of the task force on a daily basis. We we were staying up on that right. Mark was coordinating very closely with scheduling. You know where. Our priorities government healthcare. Where do we need to move resources? So when we did have an absenteeism. It wasn't felt in the essential piece of our business because we were moving resources to meet those needs and our leadership team with the sales leaders. You know Bob Howard. Jt and Rick. They all supported us on understanding. What those priorities look like so it was. It was a really a team effort from the connection. Leadership down to ground level leadership then and it is nice to see the connection team and family checking in on US daily. We'll get 'cause you know. Is there anything we can do for you Blah Blah? You know this. There's nice things at this team is working well together. You know the whole connection team no matter what location near at week calls every day and that means a lot the team it knows in all honesty. I rob knows. I like to be a little like washy sometime. No in a way like our frontline workers you know where we don't work in a healthcare environment. We don't work in a you know. Emt or fire police environment. But like Rob said. Our business was deemed mission critical. You know the product that we are pushing out is allowing for rapid testing and is helping healthcare workers gable to communicate with their patients remotely. And you know we can sit here. Comfy in our homes. And say that we're helping to do that. But you guys really are on the front line you've had to put processes and procedures and you know awareness in place in order to have that business continuity and it really. Is You know I'll to your Hornet. It's the leadership. I love that you guys and I'll say when we were scheduling this podcast. I assume were home. I admit it didn't even Magdeleine. It didn't even dawn on me that you were in the office. And I as an employee of this company. Eyeso- appreciate your leadership. Because I think it really exemplifies what connection is doing but also the example that you're setting and the advice that you can give to other companies that are dealing with a very similar. We're all in this situation together. So Steve You know I a question for you is for companies that haven't reacted so quickly that didn't bring in cleaning crews over the weekend that have home mandates but still have you know mission critical employees. You know what advice would you give to them if maybe they were a little behind the? Baler a little skeptical about what was going on. You know how do they now move forward with a task force? And what do you think is the most important thing they need to focus on so first off it is at formulating the task force. Right get your leadership your leadership team and get some good support staff around you. Hr Safety if you have an environmental safety team or whatever it may be get them involved. But communication communication is critical. If we're not communicating. It's just not gonNa work so you get in there. Communicate make sure. The team is on the same page right. Because we're in this type of environment what you don't WanNa do or you WanNa fail at as you don't WanNa pass the wrong message to your employees staff. You WanNa make sure you get your facts in a row. You WanNa take time to make sure you got all being deployed. We not release that. We were doing fever testing. We didn't have nurses alrighty on our retainment right so we had to be patient. We knew it was coming. We had calls all the time. When are you starting to when he's starting to try to get to Mt Nurses to cover almost twelve fifteen hour window in this environment? It was critical. It was difficult but I would. Just say be patient. Communicate formulate the right team and meet repetitively. And listen to your employs. Listen listen to their feedback. Understand what they're going through. Be Patient and try to formulate your plan right and I think that goes. You're also listening to the the guidance that's out there that you're states are giving and you know a curiosity question in terms of you guys are reacting so quickly to advice guidance. The newest guidance. That's come down where the suggesting that people wear masks or plugged you know. How are you guys handling that being snow on top of what your drink? What sort of your stance on this penny? We're we're always stay in touch with HR and everybody's working with the health departments and everything within the state of Ohio and and listen to the national requirements so even before the CDC came out and said Hey you know at least have some type of of mask whether it's a homemade map not medical grade but some type of mask. We were discussing this last week so we actually have. One employ has mother is making a hundred mask and we got another group making another hundred. We're GONNA have over two hundred mask available to employees when they walk in this week. So we're trying to. That can take those home like in hand. Wash them where I'm the next day. So you know we take this very seriously and we're always looking at you know things trying to get a Head game right. 'cause like you said there is no playbook. We have to think outside the box. And what Steve's leadership building this task force has been allowed us to have these team meetings and say hey. Should we do this? You know or should we put the face masks or do we need to get the shoe covers? And we're looking at even shoe covers as well employs and then we'll give them out daily and weekly advice. You know when you go home. Take your shoes off before you go into house. You know do things like that. That tried to knock contaminate or whatever and take it into your help. So we're rockin really close and getting that communication like Steve said. Communication is the key to this whole experience and the companies that are working and communicating to their team members. I think are benefiting from that. I love it while there is no playbook. I think you guys definitely are starting to write the playbook for what's going on now which will continue to evolve but also what's to come in the future and number one pull your leadership together start communicating regularly. I love the daily. I think meeting daily helps you stay like mark. You're saying you're thinking about the face masks and all of that you know a week ago you know before sort of that. Guidance came out so meet regularly. Stay on top of things. Listen to your employees. Your employees feel comfortable makes them feel recognized. Allow a place for them to ask questions and concern and as you do those two things I think coming up with the right decision to make in the moment becomes a lot easier so all of that's easier said than done. I know but I mean you guys are doing a great job and I think those that are out there. That are listening to you. Both our customers and employees definitely can take something away from what you guys have done so far and what you will continue to do down at the TI DC step. Thanks by just a little one thing if we got a couple of minutes here to talk about mark in the process right now. It's sort of sort of exciting for where we're at if I can say exciting. During a code nineteen pandemic mark started listening to you. Know what we're looking at now is the strategic direction that we need to go in the future. What does the now look like this? The now what does the future look like? Martin Luther to. We're already looking at re engineering. The layout of the lab mar attested to he's looking at. How does he drive? I'll let him talk about the new technology that he's putting in place to help mitigate this if it happens again in the future but we're looking at reengineering the layout we're putting plexiglass in areas of our depot stations. Where where we could separate the workforce of where we're at and so we're already looking at not only what we're doing today to mitigate this but what does it look like down the road. What can we do? Futuristic to help mitigate this pandemic if it does reoccur or happened or some other pandemic happens. How can we be better prepared? And how can we keep our employees safe during this time? But some of the technology that Steve alluded to as you know we. We are trying to get to a that. We call connect deploy that will automate the whole entire process. So what that does it limits. The number of touches people at the do touching keyboards touch machines as much as we can automate. We're working on. So we got a development staffer Heading that hit that hard right now to try to get that deployed within this year as well. Some of the other things are is. How do we train new staff members without having somebody looking over their shoulders? So if you think about the environment when you're in a hospital with the rolling workstations were building something similar here where we're GONNA have a a douse rolling pod embellishment machine that actually has dual monitors headphones cameras. So that somebody remotely can physically have up instructions on one screen bay talking until on the other screen actually trained individuals and that had to be standing over them during this process. You got to look at what what might be the new norm so you gotta look at technology to help us and take us there to win being able to do training like that live online video training with a representative somewhere within the cylinder at home. You know that takes a long way. Yeah no excellent point. Because I think there's GonNa be a few stages that we have to go through as this and I I don't think and I don't think any of us here things that you know. A switch will flip and everything is going to go back to exactly how it was and you know we had that first stage which was sort of. Let's get everyone what they need where they needed so they can work and be ready. And let's equip our employees as much as we can and now is the. How do we start planning for what is unknown but to what we do know we do that? Our business will continue. But what does that? Look Lake? I think putting things like that into place. Is You know if this extends for a long time. Here's what our plan is. And even if this doesn't extend for as long as some people think we now have a new technology and a new way of training and working with our employees that you know we never had before that we can scale if we need to and I think that that is super super important. Is that that return you know sort of pathway has to be scalable in order to be successful on penny right awesome so I would love to have you guys back and you know maybe a know to. I'm sure that this is going to look much different from now to win. And I appreciate both of you taking the time this morning to join The podcast this morning Super Informative. If anyone is out there and really looking to figure out you know how to manage business continuity moving forward. I think what Steve and mark or doing the T. D. C. is a an excellent beginning of a playbook. So if you're out there and you have not yet put together a task force. I encourage you to do so. Meet regularly with your team. Communicate effectively to your employees. Let them create a pathway of communication back to you and stay on top of what is going on and adapt as best as he possibly can to maintain that business continuity. Thank you both for joining me this morning. Great Conversation and I look forward to having you back Penny. Rob Thank you and Whatever platform you're listening to us today.

Episode 58 Why "Do what makes you happy" is the dumbest advice ever
"It's been a while I've been battling with my voice there's been some kind of attack my voice ends been months good afternoon everyone this is j. d. c.. I am here hosting today in champions for life podcast I'm excited sure that every day not everything makes me happy and so if we do only whatever makes you happy individuals why because people are giving advise without knowing what is God saying feelings and to live by what we want more than what pleases God and I want to address this today I WanNa talk about it today because is destroying destinies it is destroying missions is destroyed powerful I wanna do whatever makes me happy but the problem with that is that you're always going to but here's the thing I'm GonNa go with the comment do whatever makes you happy man that is what is it that makes you in alignment in obedience in precision with God that's the real answer the word of God to understand further what I'm speaking about and if your new WanNa learn about this then welcome I wanted to share with you today the comment that so many parents made to the comment I also know that you know God will fulfill us completely look for what makes you happy and then what when you're not happy then what happens what happens when whatever made you happy doesn't do it. The vision is destroying lives is destroying marriages this point parents is destroying children it is also destroyed ah so many people are really you know like they look for this were so hungry to live by which happiness comes with that but it was only to be happy do what we won that makes us happy that is a dangerous when you're living a life that's very shallow because it's so much more to that a real question here is what does God one anymore you know that nominated to parents parents tell their children whatever makes you happy but it's not even about us it's about what is it that God wants us to do and that is what will make us truly fulfilled searching on finding my next thing that makes me happy because happiness is fleeting happiness is temporary because if we believe in God then we know that he gives us the desires of our heart and we also know that he knows better than we know us and off well what have you been doing thus pleasing people all the time because that's not really accurate I'm not saying do what makes you unhappy that's not what I'm saying so let's twist this what I'm saying is what is it a God happiness is about an event happiness is not about a lifestyle is an event is something that and now we don't believe in got get off the podcast right now and if you do then getting the road kids to that is a dangerous road that you're bringing yourself too because I know for I teach this is say what does God want you to know to do what does God want me to do where does God want me to go and it's a happiness moment event but to have a long term life in which you're gonNa feel joy what is it that everybody is so hung up with doing whatever makes them happy you know I'm just half of the equation here that is a half truth because the whole truth is really not whatever makes you happy but spent time to hear from God to give you advice that is so shallow I do whatever makes you happy always getting something out of what you do there's always a benefit there's always I mean even if you help people it makes you feel good so advise are not people that are in the word of God so therefore they're going to give advise according to the worldview do whatever makes you happy whatever you want there's things there that you're doing that please you as well I learned a long time ago that there's always a cookie for you right makes you happy because a one point whatever's GonNa make you happy maybe very bad maybe we're very maybe something that I think I'm done and I was going to quit and just never show up again I never forget what my father told me have you found your destiny I'll be found your identity in God have you found your direction because if you're in the world I mean you only got to be happy with yourself you don't have to please anybody and so the language comes out I'm always pleasing people and you know it's time I please myself hear from God or maybe you don't any of that and the only reason why you won't hear from guys 'cause you're not in his word and the problem is that the people God what do you want me to do sometimes you're doing something that you don't like has nothing to do with happiness because happy then you're GonNa get side so I think that we need to change the language are wanting to change and how much time do they need before you can actually leave in other words when you wanted a job you got it of God and you're around people of God man you're GonNa fly you're gonna fly the conflict always comes in you trying to say talk will make you very sad so what do we do what do we do wants me to do that ultimately it will make me happy fill me with joy give me fulfillment makes my life totally powerful. I really didn't like the job I had didn't like it and I didn't WanNa do it anymore and I said okay that's it I'm quitting makes you happy you buy yourself a car you get a gift you get you know you'll get a friend on his awesome you know you get happy for that moment because saying when I wanted it I got it and now that I have it I don't WanNa do it and I'm willing to and you were happy you were excited but now you don't like it anymore and you just WanNa cut him off and leave them flat my father said you'll go over there in person and you tell them that you don't want to lose any more so I wanted to challenge that thought do I really WanNa do what makes me happy because if you don't know what it is that means yours that's totally irresponsible I'm not going to do so I went and I spoke and I gave him my notice planted right you want to leave them with you absent with your position vacant just like that with no notice do you think that that is the our perspective on wanting to change the expectation and we need to change a lot because this really poor advice to does somebody do whatever Bogota's you there for burps for a reason and you WanNa abandon ship I never forget this right nothing to do but then my spirit was saying you know what is true everything is and that that is what we need to concentrate on Dr is what we need to look at what is God wants me to have to be under to pray for me to improve this and I believe that it will be completely restored so with that in mind well I believe in God and I wanted to tells me but then you find someone who doesn't talk to God who doesn't get in the word of WHO doesn't pray Rosen I don't know what you're doing that means you also don't know who you are not means you also don't know your purpose you don't know your destiny so but when you get into word ask God it's not about what makes you happy is more about what does God want you to do and you're there the thing to do I was young my feelings were that's what I wanted to but my mind was saying that is the success coaching consulting also you can like me on Instagram J.

Taking Control of Your Process, The 7-day Challenge
"Hi, welcome to champions for life podcast. I'm your host JBC. And I am so happy to share what I'm gonna share with you today. When are we talking about little bit on how to take control of your process will live in a world that has speed Technology Resources? I mean coaches consultants people who've been there done that. And yet. We have a day to get things done. And not the end of the day will never get it done. And he goes on and on and on and on. And we just seem to think that it's because distractions come is because somebody distracted as somebody is to blame or some kind of excuse right circumstances. And. Face like that. So we blame where blame we blame. But very very few times. The we look at it on say. Maybe it's something that I don't know. And that's been my experience. Right. I mean, I've learned from. Many successful people how they get things done. I mean, I know people that can do things in three or four hours that takes me a whole bait to. I'm sure you've met people out or no people that I, but you probably can think and say, well, maybe they have a certain gift or talent that I don't have maybe they're more focused than I am and all of that. But see that that's an excuse because you can learn from these people you can look at them and ask questions and see how they do it and all of that. But maybe you don't have. Those type of people close by or maybe is hard for you to get to all these people or maybe is difficult for you to pay these people, but the information is there for you to get ahead. So I wanna share with you. A great great exercise has helped me to realize that is none of those things. I mean is not someone be more talented than I am is not somebody, you know, being more lucky than me or not somebody that that those better than me or is done allies me learning the reality of where I am because in order for you to get to where you wanna go. It is first important to know where you're at. That makes sense. And so when you do this exercise, you're going to see exactly where you're at and the beautiful thing about this is that it gives you a good picture that you can't deny. It's it's real if not in your mind is your reality. And then you can start making some changes that will for sure. Change the outcome. Give you more desired results than you've been experiencing in the past. Hopefully, this'll be something great for you that I wanna share with you. And then if you're interested in learning more just let me know, and I'll send you a link. So you can get involved in another training that I'm doing and sharing with people how they can become more productive because star Lee changed my life. I used to be the guy that was like a workaholic. Don't get me wrong. I still work hard. But I'm smarter. I have better balance in my life where I can do more in less time. Where there's people that work so much and so hard, but they're doing wrong, and they're doing it at the wrong thing and they're doing it with the wrong tools. Because maybe nobody ever taught them. Maybe they never member thought it was wrong. Maybe you know, culturally, they were taught to work hard, and, you know, be industrious and all of that is okay. But there's a better way in wanna share that with you. Imagine what your personal life will look like your family life. What your business life will look like many how you would feel you probably would feel more fulfill. Probably you would feel more a sense of accomplishment and chief -ment, celebrate vehicle. Yeah. Did so awesome. Feels powerful right. Well, here's an exercise that I did to help me control the process. So that I can have more of the desired results, and what I did was I took seven days. And I tried. Everything I did hour by hour for entirely seven days a human thing. You might think all nobody has time to do that. We'll know think of this backpedal a little bit and think less is more. All right. Just trust me on this and go through this process. And I promise you is life changing. So take seven days of this gate. Every night right down where you want to accomplish on the next day. And maybe right by although this morning with this in the afternoon, though, this until your work days over, okay, what other things are you gonna -ccomplish it the next day? Then on the next day from the time you wake up till the time you actually get done every hour every two hours write down. What you actually did write down if you had distractions like phone calls coming in that you didn't plan maybe an emergency. Maybe somebody distracted you. Maybe you got involved in social media so much it took it took you away from your focus, and maybe you gave it up like that. Maybe whatever it is BS detail as possible you wanna write Donald's much information as possible through in those times. So that you can see the reality of where you're at. And then you can understand why you're there. Then at the end of that they write down again what you accomplish the next day. Everything you accomplish. And then track down what you did in our than our the next day and write it down BS dealers possible again and start to see and learn. What are the patterns in your life? What other things are continually happened in that holding you back from accomplishing your goal? Whatever it is. Maybe didn't have enough knowledge something, and you had to find out whatever it is and do that. And at the end of seven days, you're gonna find out exactly what it is the has been holding you back. He's actually what it is the distractions that repeat themselves, you know, find these patterns. Because I'll wear nece is the first step to make some changes, right? And so do it and you'll see and you'll find all you'll be like, wow. I never knew I go through this. I thought about this or it could be like, I know how this issue. This happened to me all the time. But I didn't know what was it exactly that I needed to change. Whatever it is go for it. Go do this. Okay. It'll be amazing. Now, if you're interested in taking the course seven-day, challenge course, can do it on your own time. Right. Let me know send you this land you can register for it and make it happen going. There was some people that are already in there and learning this very thing that I'm I'm taking you right now. And then some there's a lot more things that you need to do once you find this information to really really change your life to be more productive imagine that in the twenty four hours of your day in your work, eight hours or nine or ten or whatever your work day is imagine you can do all of what you did in less time.

Thanks. Thanks, It's my pleasure to have you here and actually it's also my pleasure to have in hand your solaris knife. So larysa by Orion knives that's your knife company, and this came to me through the apex pass around group would you had up which will talk about in a little while but it's been a real pleasure having this knife over the last twenty four hours it is a Helluva of an accomplishment but I wanna find out you know I've got this knife in hand but you haven't been in this hobby for too long. How did you get started? Yeah, just really just watching of US trying to get a hobby. So sometimes your wife says that go get hobby and that was one of the hobbies to pick up So got into night he was just a little bit here and there I was actually talking with the knife beater channel J also kind of top Commun-, his videos, kind of more lengthy comments and then he like A. Video or maybe beyond his show and then so just when did a video now? So that's where I start with everything started out with one of the butts knocks out, which is a shark at titanic to us. That was actually my first video that put up such kind of kind of originated in abuts unlock punch lock, and then kind of a progress from there within the knife hobby. So how how did that hobby? How did your love of knives of blossoming grow I mean on your on your page you talk about E. D. C. which makes it sound general but we're all actually really just in it for the knives. It's a lot of it. I mean that's where I'd that's really where it is i. mean do have a little pocket slip where have like a little Kershaw pub on my little partner Pry bar has a she little sheets for the the slip is actually from a papa weather, which is the handmade in Canada and so they actually have a really good product. So kind of check. Those things out and then that's where I just really got into it and then the biggest thing for me in star in the channel was I didn't get to talk to anybody about nine. So most of the my co workers a Kershaw fraction on anybody knows that news editor Italian like a big that scared people so is kind of interesting interesting thing to try and even Get into have somebody you have a conversation about the knives So that was where the channel started now is able to kind of connect with stocks, twenty-three angoras heading up the apex of that time and also Zurich their code are running now the Apex Pastor and group, and then so got hooked up with them through best tech and then kind of started from there and. Then eventually took over for the administration role will sue the titanic to was your first video for the Blade Banter. Channel. But what was what was the first night? Maybe it was that that really got you hooked that that that got you to understand that not only gonNA probably spend a lot of money in this hobby but that you might down the road actually get involved with manufacturing. Really progressed. kind of oddly kind of kind of had big uptake on the first night I actually picked up was a Kershaw. was at the skyline. So it's a classic classic knife. I did so many different reviews I mean look into it and the did a lot of research all the other youtube channels out there are looking at a written articles on. Okay. The that's going to be the only knife however by is GONNA be a kershaw skyline be my one knife that will ever by forty bucks that's a lot to spend on a knife. I done a lot on it. Yeah. Yeah. I'll have it forever. Forty bucks that's going to be a good investment for that So that was actually my first knife and I was a bit let down by many people on the wasn't really there. So I was able to pick up on some of those things right off the bat and that's kind of the word kind of okay. Well, what's that and then after researching then move onto the other one What are the locks are there? What are their knives are their a one of the companies? So just I'm always about research those kind of a once tried to get into wristwatches as far as like getting the old ones and trying to bring them back They're just way too small for pieces I went actually fix the one of the The time watches like Ebay whole thing and then I was like, oh, I got one. Working. That I touched something wrong ident- something to stop work and I was like I'm done with that. I'm not GONNA do anymore. Yeah. So he was Kinda one of those things as I always like mechanisms will always interested in the. Let me let me ask you in as much as you want to divulge. What do you do in your an your non nice life that you are that you're rebuilding watches, fixing watches and and making not designing knives yeah. Also I. Mean it was kind of a family business on motor repair before. So that was kind of the initial thing. That's the thing that I thought I was going to be doing for the rest of my life. I is a motor repair it. We had the family business I'm actually from Hawaii. So that's kind of where I started from as far as where I live and then moved out to Oregon Nice that's where I am now and then. A lot better everything like that. But. I kind of went away from that because it was kind of a room and board things I appreciate my father for wanting to build something for the family trying to make a a business for all of us. It just didn't work out too well for that, and so we weren't able to keep onto it and keep on going but when did regular retail work Job it was I was in that for a long time I. Mean it was like the eighteen years. So after I got out of that in our retail world, I was able to kind of find myself again that's kind of where the hobby kind of started at the end of that, and then it kind of progressed. Aleph from that world I was able to find myself a little bit better. So was that you just had some some time left fallow. You could just Kinda dig into. And you're told you to get a hobby. Knife hobby boy yeah. I know. Yeah. I mean this kind of what got me a Amazon is a cautioned may start talking about knives or something the kind of random shirt so it's actually works really well, how long do you think it took you I guess you could probably chart it literally with your channel But in your mind take us through. How you go from sort of gathering your preferences from collecting knives and sort of discovering what you what you like and what you don't like. To to coming up with the design for the Solaris and and and you know have ended that. Come to this yeah that's started and I'm the channel started back in two thousand eighteen. If I'm not mistaken from it and then went over to lake the blade show I saw blade show West there was a the first year they came to Oregon. So that was the Portland show and then at that time I was I was probably about four hundred subscribers not really huge now. So a lot of people that have started after me have surpassed me but still about the communication that conversation but. Did not talking with different makers. One of the ones that really stuck out was like Leong Ma. He actually stated like what makes you different in this kind of like kind of stuck with me for a while as far as what does make me differently than other channels other folks out there. So that's something that of stuck with me for that and then just able to handle different knives. So that's one thing good about being a part of. A expansion round group. Just reviewing knives I'm able to handle things. Without going as broke out so I would say So that's a good thing about it and you can't really see every single knife. That's new and exciting But through the apex working with the manufacturers are actually able to see those things handle it ends then so. Handling all right now this feels I like how the shape is. So that's kind of where it went along but it was never really I think I, like this part about it I, like the blade I like everything about it. So that's kind of where it progressed from where. where my references start to build, and then that's where really just started from one of the blade shows where one of the companies was putting on a like a will render your nice. If you win the competition as far as how many likes you get who that was kind of where I went and I do something on this even so there's my little box. Said you on Burnley So you're on the box. It actually working. With everything here. So. This is kind of where it started from for the knife. I didn't win that of course but those whereas like I'll just keep on going with it now probably back in June and then. The the process on a lot longer than expected but insurance, some of the the podcast or some things that were given. TJ Schwartz was talking about most knives has about a two year dwell period from visit the design our to in the hand of the person So actually, if you're looking at that type of thing, I'm actually a little bit header that probably about a year and a half. To market and that's actually people in head. So. That's kind of interesting thing. Really Nice thing and really share kt with the Tattoo was kind of that start and then they didn't really hit the niche for what I liked about abuts lock and then so I was excited about it. Before the deadlock came out or the deadbolt. Lock Out, and then I was like, okay, I was excited they're going to coming out with another butts unlock and then when that hit the market was let down by it. So if they had come out with a fantastic to lock, I probably wouldn't make a nice but it will just like I was let down by something count gone. So I wanNA find out about your design goals for for. and and also Why it all centers around the button lock, it seems like it centers around the. Down a lot of it is I mean, that's the heart soul about a lot of them knives and So might have like the ones that can hang a car off of it and you're going to have other ones that are just non locking but the button lock I feel kind of underused lock. Probably have. If you. Okay. What's your best butter lock? There's not a lot out there despite maybe maybe twenty nine if you when taking custom makers and everything else there's not a lot of them. Probably understanding that a little bit but if you Just not a lot. So it has a factor now. So that's one thing I really liked about the button lock it has a strong lock. So it's basically kind of sheer type of mechanism. So yes, we have to break that off Maybe have a little bit of slippage to have that button talked that pop back out. But it really exemplifies the fidgets actor is I am not hard use person. I don't have knives that I go and take out the tunnel, the time but I do fidget with my knives more than I cut with them. So that's where the butts really you're. Kinda scratch that each for that, and actually took care that and then. I. Kind of went down that road in stuck to a going with the butts lock on it. I well, I've had it for twenty four hours and I've been. Visiting with it quite a lot and one of the things that you boast on in literature for this knife is that you can open it more than five ways which to me is an interesting way of putting it. I have I have what I think are my five ways as the slow roll the thumb flip the spidey flick, the locked depression, and then the slipper. You say more than five but you not. So. Yes I have nurture flip forward. So that's one thing I don't like about people saying that gravity. Gravity is a little bit different like you press the button lock you'll be gravity fall open but in nurseries kind of where you actually have to shake it up and so does shape I'll with some forest and everything like that but. It's not really like a Rubik's cube of. For Lake. Analyst not a number of things with it, but I think you've got all of them. Okay. Okay. Well, the thing that really strikes me about this about this whole setup is the are the angles here from the from the pivot to the flipper to the thumbs they all are definitely optimized to rocket that blackout and it's also on a multi robot pitiless, which you know obviously adds to the to the super smoothness but to me I think the real success of this is in this setup here. The has liberally good as far as on the leverage for it So one thing even with the Medford knifes I bought a Medford smooth criminal. The lock of from them I felt that the the defendant was really bad on and sometimes butts unlocks have that issue where the detect isn't very strong but were they placed their flipper tab is below the pivot. So that's why I really wanted to get above in handling some other knives having above gives a little bit more acceleration that you can get on it as why put it above the pivot a, you can't push-button. Air Some. Somebody some cough people caught push-button. So you actually go and actually push the pivot or the flipper tab in can't do that with any knife that's the tabs above the actual the the pivot So this on the lights which side of it, but does not have that push-button starter things but that's where I put it above. So that's why I was just really trying to figure out. What was I finding to be kind of lacking some of the other knives and I was trying to incorporate that the best I could within the Orion Lawrence and Orion really came for my kids because we're outside and then they'll be like all right belt and everything else on that's they're really important me. Hopefully like other people have kids. I think you have a daughter and I don't know if you have any other kids, you have two daughters him. Okay so I've three boys. They're all six years old because they're all triplets So it takes it's a lot Terrible twos doesn't exist terrible five six when they actually have a little bit more into having a few of their own destiny. Is. Kind of makes it hard Looking at looking at the design of this and this setup. How much would you say that you're you're you're talking about your family's automotive experience in your experience with that? How much would you say that your understanding of mechanics? Informed that design I'm not too sure how much it actually played into. Kind of a factor of official things being able to have a tactile feel. So that's kind of where I think I was able to. Some of those things I wouldn't say that that was all main thing for but it's something that kind of always stuck with me as far as being able to handle thing of trying to figure things out So even with doing things, they haven't done before our read like instructions and just kind of go like rebuilding a deck or something like that. So it's kind of doing the jack-of-all-trades type of thing to try and figure things out trying to figure out how things operate. So what were your goals in designing this knife The goal was to just really get a race solid now, button something that's really comfortable in hand something that actually is for the general population. So for me for forty dollars was a lot to spend for first night. is a lot spend for a lot of people. A lot of people have their ten are knives and they. Run through knives over and over again But I wanted to have it somewhat tenable for those folks but it's still kind of knife because the eighty dollar mark is something when people are starting to get no more enjoyment, other knives having more of a collection. So that's where I went with that price point. Once I was able to work with Chew Ski, which is the manufacturer for the knife. Xavi at the cost and for okay words, it's going to end up as far as my actual retail value for the customer and then I was aiming for in seventy five I went up to eighty. So I'm still within that Mark I didn't jump it a lot from that but you'll just a lot of just trying to figure out those things in really I think I got. Most of what I wanted out of it I I have a whole bunch of people that looked at it. I haven't had anybody say throw it on the trash it's garbage So they've actually been able to enjoy it really getting a lot of positive feedback from it which I like is I mean, that's the thing I just wanted to make it something that other people could enjoy as well. Yeah I mean it's definitely an enthusiasts knife. Made Bein enthusiasts but that doesn't mean only enthusiasts kid A. Cherry this and have it for a long time One of the things that really impressed me is how you handled the you know because I know your your goal is to get under a hundred bucks each supply, a titanium military team clip. You can reverse to the other side with just a rarity. and. But it's also. It's also very discreetly harketting on the on the off side it's not used. You barely notice that there's a pocket. Milled out of the G ten NASALLY fairly missed that too when they're at their own is not left hand carriers on. No, it is. Yeah Yeah I really like that because you're giving, you're giving everyone an opportunity to carry knife but but you don't have some big ghastly holes our affiliate ahead you know filler tabs are. I I don't know I don't know it's it's there. I mean you might as well. Just you don't to have a tab for it but that's where it is. It's it's still ambidextrous as far as the lock to just using your pointer finger or your thumb I started not as actresses in. The. Access lock or something like that but it's much better than probably like spider co compression lock as far as left hand operation. Yeah definitely. So so you come up with the design you figure out what your goals are. you start designing this knife how many iterations did it go through before you shopped it around and how did that? Process work that process is very difficult. So I really not as far as the design side, I had papers. So you saw the box and then I went over and learned draft site also just through Youtube metron affair it out I. Love Draft Site. It was a really good process for me to draft site So some people use that. I don't think people use it as much. Anymore but it is something that was super intuitive for me. I. Was able to basically take the blade, take the handle really move it around sure. Didn't hit anything what I was using it. And I really did that. Within the Thirty Day trial period of draft site. Never bought drafts. So. So that's where I started with the two D rendering I, I still like it, and so maybe I'll pick it up but there's other software that seems like is more of an industry standard than probably have to learn 'cause Fusion three sixty is a very powerful, yet frustrating program because of that. So. That's one thing I've been playing around with shopping around as far as doing that That's one thing that I really found to be difficult because when I industry built it, I was lying to have a USA manufactured knife and a lot of people are going that way now but this is still what I wanted to do back in two thousand nineteen. Almost impossible to do. So that's not something that anybody that's actually an oem manufacturer USA that no wants to really capitalize on I. Think it's GonNa be something that's. A market that can be totally dominated on maybe not in the sub market where this one is for eighty dollars but probably one, hundred, fifty to two, hundred dollar mark. Can really be taken advantage of 'cause I shop at around to people that have. Their own sites and everything else not gonNA call him out here. But I went and I talked to him said they're too busy with their own products. They don't have time to bring out anything new a price really large. If I had a large money account, I could probably get in there and do collaborations or whatnot, but they just weren't available for that. So these domestic I'm sorry. Yeah. That's where I started with China out as far as I started domestic and I really wanted to try and get it to be a USA manufactured product but it just was not available I found one Guy Keith on instagram that I guess some work as I know that might be interesting one to go about. To try and figure out maybe for future model or something but there's not a lot of folks that do oem work in these on the lower grades scale, and that's something that if anybody's dealt with like a Chinese manufacturer and that's what she has is they can take your product from that that piece of paper or that Napkin render it, get it through all the processes get it to numb design torsion, engineering, production they'll give you the pricing for us. Oh, it's really that type of all. Encompassing product that is really missing from the United States you could probably find somebody that would make your handle skills. They'll cut your blanks, they'll go and do the heat treat about there's not anybody you can go to. Okay. This is my drying How much would this cost to make? West the three. D. print like. Two Three D prints made. See this is the first one that was made for. I Three D. print and then the second three d print made a so it didn't change very much. There's just a matter of little bit rounding for some sections like this section got around a little bit a tabs about the same. for it but. Really, hard to see. But Everything kind of fell through with the kind of this. Type of setup. So there was a lot of changes from the two designs, but this is all done. Through OEM. Manufacturing key. So it's something that's available in that aspect that really is just missing from the United States and that's Kinda hard thing about it as much as people are harping on lake well. Don't by China's nines don't buy this company's knives. Won't. Give me. An option. Right right at the have such capacity. It seems if you can be full production house soup to nuts, you take designed from a Napkin and you have enough designers who can interpret that in a timely way I mean that just means. Their capacity is massive. You find US P and how does that work? Do they license your your model and put it out Zeke US night our yeah. This a site working with. Busy. It kind of came out of loose owed the apex pass around group I reach different companies and see if they wanna Kinda join in and this is how that. Works you need. One knife around and we'll send it to these people that are interested associates was one of the companies that I reached out to kind of out of the blue they were like, do you want to go to to blade show as a? Maybe I. Don't know you very well but It was kind of a little scary for players like some random company asking you WANNA go to show but I I went to the show. Wasn't affiliated with at that time but then they brought me out there to care things eight worked the booth and then eventually became the cures P. USA representative. So that's where folks have issues with their knives. comes to me email and everything else says the service that comes to me. So already built that relationship with them prior. So that's where I still checked around with some of the other folks of a ended up going with them because I already worked with Mary new them, and then we're kind of arm hash things out for the rest of the way. So it is my design is not a licensed. Do your speeds just manufacturer to them? So they're the Oh yes. for my design in my company. Ray Right that was totally absent minded question because I'm actually looking across the room at the box that this comes in in your marketing is a real on point I mean the packaging for this knife which hasn't even been released yet is. Really, Nice packaging comes with with a cool little pen, and the whole thing is a is a is a nice little package. It's not some throwaway box. How do you plan on marketing this once it's out I feel like you've had a lot of really great exposure thus far once say muffing how does that work? Okay. So you you get them to a great. So you go through kickstarter I'm sorry you gotTa. Take me through this process I don't understand it is there's so many different steps had no. So that's where it could be longer than necessary but So that's where so. Once, I was able to figure out with your speed as far as what the cost was for me I went to kick started because it's a reputable source for cod funding There's people that say well, why don't pre on duprey orders I don't WanNa, take your money and then not be able to make it and then have to refund all your money I. Don't like that idea some people we've worked for a lot of people. WanNa knock that But from years a, this is how much I need to make this knife. If I can't make it there, you're not getting charged kickstart is so if I can't make it there which I am one, hundred, twenty, eight, percent time check so we're going to run out. Thank you. It's it's been crazy but that's kind of like the. When it's like congratulations as it's like, okay. Now, at the I just drove all the way to the mountain To take a height. So that's kind of where it is now. So so once I actually have. The funding for it that's we're still things have to keep on going. So it's not like you ha- everything is done and they can get going but. So once I had the information I. Okay. I decide on kickstarter for that funding and then Then I have to go source the box that boxes for Orion is not a random box you're gonNA find on other knives it's one that I figured out for that. And then I source the box not through P and then that is one thing I picked up I wanted to still support company. So that's where it's pocket pen that little pen that's going to be in. There S A one zero five was that goal and then everybody gets a pocket pen. So feel like oprah with that everybody gets puck. and. So SO USA product not printed in the US the the The stickers are GonNa be printed going to be by L. H. Screen Printing that's in Salem Oregon So they're gonNA be doing the the labels, the actual stickers. So make these type of stickers. So this, this is not the exclusive on. So I'm going to have exclusive stickers for the backers that's just a regular sticker for the campaign. And then. Yeah so After doing the kickstarter teamed up with Jack Farm boy he has another Youtube Channel Instagram. Also, Gear House media is what he started when he helped out with Dan Designs. So he up with their launch. So tinder with him and he's the one that did the video for it. The photos that are on the kickstarter campaign. So teamed up with him and I saw a lot of those type of networking things to try and figure things out and try and make it all work and then writing everything up and wanting to know about kickstart is they take about a ten percent cut. From your whole campaign so And they also will take about twenty days to fund. I worked at all into the timeline for the knife and that's all in the kickstarter. You can kind of see where I'm looking at the timeline I wanna hit the goal. So unless something else happens other than Covid, which I I hope it doesn't Then you'll get your nice shipped to you in February of two thousand twenty. So do the knives come to you and the? Amount. Due. Your I I assume you're GonNa Yep you saw it on your own. Yes. I'M GONNA get all in. I'm? GonNa Choose. Be Done here in Oregon and then I'll be packing them. So I'm GonNa be doing busy everything else. so so everything is sourced it's all come to me and then I want to be cure seeing the knives packing tonight is putting the pen in their all the little information and then ob sent out. So I'm using like stamps dot com to work out because it goes to people's homes go Scipio boxes Fedex doesn't. Po. Boxes ups doesn't appeal boxes. I want to have something that was pretty well established, and then even working with Monterey Bay knives I was able to talk with him a little bit on. So that's something that he uses and then he recommended a thermal printer site picked up little thermal printer. So there's so many different steps that you don't think about when you just by Nice or just just so many things even down to. Law. What font size do I want on the box and we're want place it so you don't think about those things normally. While I mean, it sounds like you have this whole operation. So well, in hand you seem thought of everything and I can't help but think that some of some of that comes from the channel some of it comes from receiving so many knives through the pass around group and and and really breaking them down for yourself to discover what you like. So now that you've you haven't been through this process, you are in the throes of the process. And, it will be going on for quite some time. You're in the thick of it How has changed how you look at the knives you're not getting in the passer. Or that you're buying to review channel. Yeah. It's changed a bit because it's like I like the Nice I made and it seemed like other people like it as well. So it's it's kind of become one of those a little standard as far as is it better than the knife that is designing or? Producing That's kind of what I look at for those knives. It's still I still enjoy what I have and then I kind of try and have some type of like. In furtherance bars, they have like like the coffee beans trying to bring you back to like a regular sent. So I try to have some baseline as far as like a what does a eighty dollars nine hundred fifty nights look like as far as a good one. So I'm not trying to compare it to you at two hundred knifer. Benza or something to. Okay. This much better than this twenty ninth inning. Yeah. Well, that's GONNA be. Should be shouldn't it should be yes of. So that's kind of where I try and figure out so it doesn't really change. That much pry taken away a little bit from it because I'm really trying to concentrate on it running out. So I used to be doing like two to three videos a week in one, the two videos a week trying to get that in but still in the past around group. and. Then try to get caught up on the metal or the are testing a spreadsheet I work on that now. Prior to everything else and put that together. So what you care still doing a lot of shit. The HR she testing and then I thought that spreadsheet for that. So when you think of the Malibu Malibu. Yeah I want you to name names about button lock knives that you like I mean sides tied tack to WHO's doing it right in your opinion. As far as a really good tolerance at mid the Medford is a very good nice also except for the placement of that slipper tab and the deterrent I those things he could could have either had better detained or could have had a different place in the flipper type and that would just really sealed the deal for that Nice protect is excellent it I mean they do a great job for their butts locks I haven't been able to experience Brian ties, actual work but the the the scare t version of it when I first started was good and was fun but now I kinda outgrew it in a sense because it is. Very, sloppy in it's not didn't improve on it. So that's where I was like looking for that because when the titanic came out and then now they have the new Bryan ties tie fighters as expecting there to be a better lockup and everything else, and it's not there and that's where I was kind of let down by share Ktar that but they produce a of knives. So they work with great designers have great designs that come out just if they could step that up, is really a a knife that I was really surprised by and everybody's got a cringe. So so hold on to yourself I mean Gordon hold the chair anything M Tech makes a good luck I never really yes. They make a really good button lock. I bought it for like eight bucks or something, and then they granted some of them are a little sloppy but. I bought like five of them, and then I think three three or four out of five saw their mocked up real well. I was really surprised and impressed by that. That's interesting. That's another company that makes a million knives a year and obviously probably more than that. But you know makes you makes you wonder why not? Just why? Not just about like the Sierra kt they work with They just put out so many great great designs if they could reduce that by third, step it up Jews the touch with the materials. From what I'm hearing this with the fit, you know for the locks and stuff like that I feel like that could knock them in the stratosphere instead of coming out with these very expensive other nights like the shock you know which is just so beyond the Pale compared to the others. I mean the the the locker is is decent as far as it's very strong for the deadbolt lock they're doing it better. The M forty that came out with deadbolt lock on it now works really really well Blake Super Thick said, it's not a good slicer, but it's it's this purposes for it. and. That's where just buttocks. Not a lot coming out I. Mean I know swags has hers coming out She has one coming out you kaiser. So. That's the end of the straight. So she's GonNa have her butts unlocked flipper. Thumbs duds everything to. So it might be kind of the resurgence of the Button Marcus is as much. It is push a button on the box nine that is. Literally Push Button, so if you had anybody a nice new personnel anything else, it's very very. Close pushing on the lock bar the other way and trying to figure it out and it's like really just push a button lake. That's how you closed your hands out of the way but it's also kind of pushed a button colleague everything that you have nowadays the coffee machine and everything else a lot of cars is push a button. That's goat kind of another kind of thing for push the button. Oh it makes perfect sense. It's totally intuitive. I remember. Doing something for work several summers back and I handed someone para-military to is yes. For a knife I'm like sure. And and and this guy this person in particular? I. Knew it was Kinda funny handing this person in particular the House I wonder I. Wonder What he's GonNa come back with it was done using it and he came back and he's like It's to me out like I see a little tab I not pushing. But yeah, right here, push the button. No one's going to have any any any issues closing I wanNA. Talk a little bit about the design of this. for usability this is this is like a a super easy. And that's the main goal of. And you have this really nice drop point blade with a really nice point that's basically centered with the. Okay I. Like that a lot I also like this is you know spider co talks about fifty fifty toil. This is like a seventy thirty Choi L- and and it's really Feels really, really great. But it's also it allows you to have a grip all the way back without feeling like you're running off the back like a stage or something like that. So really really great design even like this little semi thumb ramp because I I like how it feels on the back of my thumb in this sort of four recruits our with my thumbs right there and so. Design wise I think this is a a really. Excellent excellent knife I I love like I said, I love how discreetly you you have a mill titanium clip on a sub one hundred dollar knife that can swap to the other side men very nicely done on this on. The ramp, that's there on that. You just talked about. There's the. Purpose for that because I was actually to not have, Jinping, I did not want to have been there because that's one thing that bothers me about separate tabs and that you run your finger into the jumping on the back of the knife I don't like that I want to have something to love for grip without having Jinping there and then also I wanted to put the button and a place where you're not worrying about actually president logging use. That's why not moved a little bit forward. So you sound a lot of buts locks air a little bit of behind the pivot Mine is a bit of a little bit of in sort. In front of the pivot. And that kind of changed the way that the whole knife kind of operated a little and then I didn't make the the French oil I mean the front not senior trial a little bit bigger to to some people are a little concerned about it so the guy will make it. and. That meter. So I made it four millimeters of bigger than I join at it. So how did you decide on the size is this year wheelhouse for knives you like to carry? Yeah. At is now four point two, five original goal for I. Think there was a mixup in to some of the translations for is I wanted to make sure that the blade actually now fit into the handle. So when the first one came out of the three D. print, the blade was a little bit short of the handle and then saw the could you adjust that and then so I instead of making the blade longer not just for the the handle shorter. A. Three Point one seven as far as like depending on where you measure. But Basically, the furthest point forward is three point seven I was going for three point five. So, and that's one thing. Yeah. No, no please Oh and that's one thing I wanted to. Found out about it in two because I wanted to have the. The inner liner, not a full honor and then some of the things even. One of the folks. Eating know who's who said that one of the channels of thinking about it later but OCD for. Mentioned about it being modern. Yes it can be. So taking that the same lock, all the parts are than the handle scale and the blade I can implant in to try and figure out how did offer just a new handle cows in new blade and you can make a bigger nice or you can make a smaller nice. Out of the same nice. So. Something modular a modular system like that sounds that sounds cool. So. After February twenty, twenty one. Okay. I'll. Come to your place. Your office you go through the mall you see them patch them send them off. Then what happens it's net then I'll hopefully the website fully from running by then still up now for RYAN KNIVES DOT COM. But right now, it's Kinda showing the pictures all the reviews. So whenever a new review comes out on Youtube that I, put it up there if some people on instagram that check out as far as shadow born hanks and then. The name of the first are bad with names sometimes. But name with that here what it down somewhere. Tech writer now just looked at it as well on Instagram, and so that's where I'm going to be looking to have the extra skills the different colors for the pivot and the dock space are available through the website. And then that's where I'll be selling the knives as well. So. So, when you do a kickstarter campaign at kickstarter campaign and you fully-funded you've. One Hundred Twenty eight percent funded yours that means a certain amount of knives are made but they're not all spoken for correct. Yeah. Have more knives to sell it. You don't. Okay. Okay. Yes I'm adjusting it. So so initially I had an idea as far as how much I was going to make and having to readjust that goes. Getting close to where I was going to how many I was. GonNa make so I'M GONNA have to adjust for that initial order and that's one thing that's nice about kickstarter as you get to know what the demand is. So I could I could have made so many nice and then I sold fifty I have and then so that's where it's kind of hard thing about it and that's where it kind of helps kickstarter campaign. So you know okay well, how much demand is there and then if I was digging to make. Two, hundred knives and then now on kickstarter. Five hundred boy I better make six, hundred, seven hundred knives or more. So that's gives you an idea as far as that goes. So, do you have other designs and often you have things you want to bring forward I have other ideas I. Don't I've been really concentrate on this so I don't have the the wheelhouse of I. Don't I don't mean to be like night. What isn't accent? Yeah. Yeah. I've already got that question before some looking at different things but a really, I don't want to be a revolving door of this is this Laura. is of the Sun Latin word So that's Kinda really where this is going to be every other knife product or knife is going to be a kind of orbiting around this lawrence knife. That's where it's going to be kind of that fiction is kind of like a rat to rat one that was just always there. That's idea behind it net I don't want to have. Granted if it happens I I, really don't WanNa have like twenty different models that I'm working with. I want to just really trade on what what I enjoy what I like kind of go from there. Will I in being totally honest with you this is in my wheelhouse and yet once I got it in hand man I it's really compelling to me and. I really. Love this knife in the one day I've had it and I know I'm sending it along. So I'm not I'm not developing a true bond but I think this has a lot of character not only is it By the way? It's it's relatively thin blade stock in it's got a high. Flat Grind it is thin and slice we haven't even talked about the performance of the blade but this is a really really great knife and I could see how. It could be great for people with big giant meet. You know who meet meet pause where Meat Hook. Hammocks. Get them on there and I just I think you've done an excellent job in and I'm really excited to seize hit the market and see. How how Orion knives progresses. It's working with people small hands, big hands. It's one thing that's been able to pass it around. Like A therapeutic edge in women carry knives non their husband wife came.

I don't even know what I just said B. R. O. A. D. C. A. S. T. I form adjective from seventeen sixty seven one cast or scattered in all directions. Going to cast out the stuff into the wind and it's going to go in a very broad. Way Out there. next is number two made public by means of radio or television.

Now, we have the in transitive definitions one to transmit broadcast to to speak or perform on a broadcast program broadcaster is a noun. I've never really thought about where this word comes from. Why do we call it a broadcast? Like a TV show or radio show well, you know. Because you're cast in it out broadly third form of broadcast. It is an adverb from eighteen fourteen to or over a broad. Fourth form of Broadcast Noun from nineteen, twenty, two, one, the act of transmitting sound or images by radio or television to a single radio or television program. Next is broad church two words.

Breath church is also the name of TV show that I my wife watched I. Don't remember if I watched all of it or some of it or something but. I think it was a good show. Next is broadcloth one word Noun from the Fifteenth Century One, eight, twelve napped woolen or worsted fabric with smooth lustrous face and dense texture. There are a lot of fun words and that one a twelve napped woolen or worst and fabric with smooth lustrous face and dense texture to a fabric usually of cotton silk or Rayon made in plain and rib weaves with soft semigloss finish broadcloth. Next is broaden. or he probably just say broaden of verb from the seventeen, twenty, six, I is transitive to make broader and then in transitive to become broad. Next is broad gauge. Do I, think that's nieces back. When you sneeze or cough you if you're GONNA do it into your hands, you should go wash your hands. If you'RE NOT GONNA do it in your hands which you shouldn't. Really. Should go you should put put your face in your elbow. Or into something. I see way too many people like cough or sneeze into their hands and then, and then they they don't wash their hands. They just leave it. There you your hands are dirty. Now you gotTA GO CLEAN THEM WHY? Why don't people do this? So I just need into my elbow, I should probably go wash my elbow. But. I'll do that later. Okay. Next is, where were we broad gauge two words with a hyphen? Could also be broad-gauged i. don't usually read that part, but I guess I did this is an adjective from eighteen fifty eight one wide in area or scope as in a broad gauge effort to comprehensive in outlook range or capability as in a broad gauge statesman. Next is broad jump broad jump. Two words. Noun. From eighteen sixty seven synonym is long jump. Broad jumper is a Noun I remember trying to do the long jump in. Gym Class when it was probably high school junior high remember exactly I don't think I was very good at it was never a very. Sports sports physical. person. But I tried. And failed. next is broadly.

Next is broadscale one word adjective from nineteen, thirty, nine broad in extent range or effect. Next is broadsheet one word noun from seventeen o five one, we have the number one definition for the word broadside, which is next. Don't worry. We'll get there. Number two is chiefly British, a newspaper with pages of a size larger than those of tabloid it's a broadsheet. Okay Now we have the first form of broadside, it is a noun from fifteen, seventy, five, one, a one, a sizable sheet of paper printed on one side one a to a sheet printed on one or both sides and folded one be something as a ballad printed on a broadside. So would that be a valid is printed like the text of a ballot is printed on a large sheet of paper. Okay. Number Two is archaic the side of a ship above the waterline three all the guns on one side of a ship also their simultaneous discharge. So the side of ship is the broadside because it's you know the the broadside, it's not the front which is small of the back, which is small. It's the big broadside and then all the guns are. The broadside. And then they shoot and that's the broadside do. Okay three be a volley of abuse or denunciation number four, a broad or unbroken surface. Next. Is the second form of broadside adjective from sixteen, forty, six directed or placed broadside as in a broadside attack. Third form of broadside. Oh I probably should have mentioned. Broadside has the last word of the episode. third form is an adverb from eighteen seventy, one A. With the side forward or toward a given point synonym is sideways like. The ship, the broad side of the ship is going towards something I. Don't know can ships do that? As in turned broadside. Yeah, I guess they can. You can angle the ship in that direction, but I think it can go in that direction. That's where their shape that way. They're shaped. So they can go in that one direction with the broadside on the side. Wouldn't be directly from the side as in the car was hit broadside. To In one volley V. O. L. E. Y. In one volley. Okay. Not sure. The context of that There was one in the first form of broadside that had the word Volley Volley of abuse organization I don't know. and now we have number three or the yeah. At random broadside means at random and then finally the fourth fourth form of broadside it is a transitive verb from nineteen eighty-one to hit broadside as in the car was broadsided. So we had broadcast broad church broadcloth brought in broad gauge, broad jump broad leave broad loom. Am I even say in these words correctly. Broad. Lebed yeah. Broad loom broad-minded broadscale broadsheet broadside. That word sounds incredibly weird. Now, I am going to pick broad-minded as the word of the episode because. I think you just benefit more when you are broad minded. You can accept a lot more out in the world and you're not. So you're not closed minded your broad-minded see. That's all I got to say thank you very much for listening. This has been spencer. Dispensing. Information Goodbye.
Magnum's Take on Pantone, Manfrotto Memory Cards, Instagram Blocks Fake Images, No Photos In Vogue
"Magnums variants classic blue man photos brand new tough memory cards. INSTAGRAM blocks fake news. Italian vogues googles photo free January issue and my pick for photographer over the week on this episode of taxes. Take uh thanks so much for tuning in for another episode of Photography Radio. My name is Thomas and today you are listening to attack us take with Staccato Cacao where he covers. What's new and interesting in the world of photography including digital analog mobile and everything in between enjoy? Can you imagine your life without photography. No then you will love this show and it doesn't matter if you're or a DSL are a mirror `less for a mobile phone shooter. We're here to help your photography grow. This is photography radio. Oh hello everyone. And welcome to this week's episode of Takis take which is my take on photography news this week. So let's let's begin now episode. One of twenty twenty. I talked about Pantheon's color of the year classic blue and I wondered if this would have a direct effect on us as photographers and it looks like Magnum photos has taken up the challenge on the website. Magnum talks about Pantheon's pick up classic blue as color of the year and the reasons for it as a reporter previously pant on statement about the color choice is unquote. We're living in a time that requires trust and faith it is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by Pantalone nineteen dash four zero five five to classic blue a solid and dependable color hue. We can always rely on wall. Magnum decided to answer back by looking back on their catalog catalog images forty eight of them. In fact and this is a quote about the reasons for choosing these photographs above is a selection of only a tiny fraction of the images in the Magnum archive which capture variations upon the panton color. They covered diverse settings capture myriad moods. It's and range from luminescent too. Muted Serene too exuberant yet. All convey some degree of the sense of clarity. That blue can transmit into the viewer. These coup photographs. Yes Pun intended or great curated selection of bluey images for mermaids to airplanes plains to urinals so check them out br APPs it'll inspire US advertising versus do our own classic Blue Collection The memory card market is flooded with various brands and now we have a brand new player tripod manufacturer man Dan Frodo. They dabbled camera bags mobile photography accessories and lighting and now they're adding professional rugged memory cards to their product line Manfred era claims. These cards are industrial strength. Reliable with unparalleled speeds in S. D. C. F. and micro Esti although no cf express cards which is unusual since they are targeting the pro-market now the SD. And Mike Reiss D. Cars are fully sealed and waterproof and can be submerged for up to seventy two hours underwater. It can handle temperatures of minus twenty five to plus eighty five degrees Celsius or the C. F. Cards are not waterproof and have a temperature their tolerance of zero two semi degree Celsius. They claim that these rugged cards or three times stronger than standard memory card and can handle high impact forces as well as being ben proof these cards come in multiple speeds but the top card has reached speeds of up to two hundred eighty megabytes per second and write speeds of two hundred and fifty megabytes per for second. Although Sony's top pro series cards have read write speeds closer to three hundred if you go to photos website. Now there's a fifty percent discount on these cards if if you want to give them a try but I'd be interested in testing these cards against Sony's tough series memory cards because you know what competition is always good for us. As consumers look back in December instagram announced a new feature that uses algorithms to block images that were either either altered or completely faked to combat the spread of misinformation on their platform. Now this is a quote from instruments website concerning this new feature. They said we. We want you to trust what you see on instagram. Photo and video based misinformation is increasingly challenge across our industry and something our team has been focus on addressing. In May of this year we began working with third party fact checkers in the US to help identify review and label false information. These partners independently assessed false information to help us catch it and reduce its distribution. Today we're expanding our fact checking program globally me to allow fact checking organizations around the world to assess and rate miss information on our platform and of quote so according to inscribe once you find these possible altered or faked images they would flag these images as either false or partly falls with these images are no longer being able to be redistributed and shared as well as having them removed from the explorer and Hashtag page with multiple. False image. Pose accounts can be blocked by I their algorithms making it more difficult for these accounts to be seen. The key to the system is both their image matching technology as well as user reporting these images or accounts with the use of third party. Fact checkers the palm. Is that some accounts that use highly altered images but for artistic artistic reason and not for fake news For instance purposely distorting natural colors or facial features again for artistic reason and these folders are also pink flagged the some of these accounts have reported that the images have been flagged as fake due to these algorithms and their accounts being shadow band or blocked from and discover and the use of their hashtags. Now I'm sure that this is the growing pains of an application of new technologies to help. Stop the growth of fake news By altered images. And that's something that none of us want but of course smart software can only be so smart. Let's see how instagram attempts do blocking these fake news on their platform on on one of the world's largest and most visited immature forms and see if they will succeed in doing so and if it creates more problems by blocking legitimate images that are altered or enhanced for the sake of art and creativity and for more information on instagram the temp to combat misinformation A. Leave the link in the show notes. An odd news this week. Italian Italian vogues January issue was produced without the use of any photographic images for the sake of sustainability. Now what does that mean. We're using their. I count as the main way to communicate to their audience as to why the January issue lacks any photographic images but uses artists illustrations for their cover and feature articles instead vote talks about the cost of creating images for each issue of their magazine. This is a quote one hundred and fifty people involved Paul about twenty flights and a dozen or so train journeys forty cars on standby sixty international deliveries lights switched on mm for at least ten hours nonstop partly powered by gasoline fueled generators food waste from the catering services plastic to wrap the garments lecture to recharge phones Cameras Dot Dot dot now end of quote and with the money they saved by using illustrations instead the photographs. Italian vokes said that they would use the money that they saved and donate the proceeds to the restoration efforts in Venice after the recent flooding for the February issue. It's back to normal so it seems that it was just a one opt-in for a bit of publicity as well as to give attention to the real cost of the fashion industry when traveling the globe to get a few images for their magazine. My take is that they could have still use models and photographers but minus the global travel and shipping clothing and the equipment and perhaps use creative photography to reduce the use of lights and power. And Hey even and illustrators have to eat right. While leave the link in the Italian vogues statement about this illustration only edition of the magazine which includes some of did the illustrations us which looked great. Or you can just go and buy the magazine itself or does that also contribute to the problem who knows This weeks photographer. The week is Filipino. Photographer and author size accrues Bakani. Although over initial pursuit was not dog iffy. She found her calling when documenting the condition of domestic workers in Hong Kong while she herself was working as one. This body of work caught the attention of Magnum photo who selected her as one of the recipients of the Magnum Foundation Photography and Social Justice fellows and in two thousand fifteen this exposure and mentoring by Magnum allowed her work to be shared and exhibitions around the globe with many more awards accolades glades and recognition. Since then I had the unique opportunity to spend time as well as interviews is a in Bangkok back in two thousand seventeen for the Monogram Asia. H street photography workshop and conference. And since then she's been busy building up her body of work to check out size of cruises work. Check out our website at size a cruise by Connie dot com or on instagram at Sisa crews Connie and again a leave the notes in the show notes and so. That's it for talking. Take for this week.
