He is the medical director at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine in as a medical advisor to bill and Hillary Clinton as who went from eating fast food and hot dogs on George Foreman grills to being Pasqua -Tarian. I have an appreciation for food as it relates to our health. That's why I wanted mark to share his insights with all of you because eating healthy transform my life and it can do the same for you. How did you originally get into the medical field? Well I was studying. Buddhism believe it or not in college and took a class called the medicine Buddha and begin to understand the nature of spirituality and healing connected and I WANNA be among rabbi and figured out so I I decided to go into medicine it was a way of serving and I believe that the the ideal they still do that. You know we're here contribution. There's so much information about what to eat. What not heat online. How do you know what to trust? It's really important to learn how to be a critical reader of the media and the science and doctors are taught. That's for the most part. Certainly most patricians are most government bodies. Give recommendations are it and here's the real simple answer. There's two kinds of stats that are worth looking at. One is population. Studies will Biaggi that takes people over long periods of time follows a behavior habits. And see if there's a correlation so eggs cause heart disease but it's not really that causes it. It's a correlation and most of the nutritional centres we have our correlation studies which do not prove cause and effect so study of women. Over fifty five six I would conclude with sex never leads to pregnancy the study. The purpose accurate. But it's completely invalid so what we do those kinds of analyses we we see these headlines. Extra kill people you know. Coconut oil is going to kill you and people get so confused. We have to begin to look at whether it's a randomized controlled trial or an experiment. Which means you take two people. You can have them. You know one treatment and half of them another treatment and see how they compare. That's the way determine what's true or not and most of us when we look at a paper headliner. Study aren't thinking about that. We're seeing owners are the correlation and that's the problem so it's time to think through that and it's important but I would not take every headline as Gospel Click big and you should be smarter to them. How do you structure guys? You're getting enough sleep in how you're taking everything into account because it seems like especially pursuing just starting to try and break negative habits. Bad Habits like this would relate son. Is it one time it's prescription to the by is really important and then connected to the house and it's a skill like anything else. I mean I can cook three meals a day from scratch whole foods in thirty minutes toll for offerings. But it's a skill. I learned out exercise into my life and structure my days that I can do the things I want in and this morning meditated today mock exercise tomorrow morning to visit. I know I play the meditation session afternoon and and control what eating in where I'm going so it's really about skilled at all. Men Learning how to practice the skills it help sustain you and actually invigorating overtime. The World Health Organization came out and said that as an occupational phenomenon. Recently what's the best way to prevent burnt out any food part of that you know? It's interesting mental. Health issues are rampant in fact In terms of overall effect quality of life it's the number one health bird around the world and also cost burden becomes particularly Lack of being gauged in a society as an active member. The solution solution in part is figuring out how to connect mental health with those behaviors generate mental health or social behaviors. Of 'cause L in the food again is probably one of the biggest drivers of cognitive function of mood of energy and people don't understand that I was. Exercises is very powerful in terms of rejuvenation regeneration. Sleep were asleep deprived nation. All those things are just super simple. Building blocks his focus on E. sleep an exercise in pure hearted dials in necessarily perfectly every day. But for the most part of the huge difference my nephew for example was having you know depression and lethargy and function and was not doing well and it really blame wasn't exercising. You couldn't function. I want to get bigger every day this week. And he's like completely turned around stuff. I think people don't understand the connection between their mind and their body in the reverse order in other words we know about the my body effect.

"Dan Shah about my goal security. The best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just five questions. My I guess today is the CO founder and general partner in recent Hurwitz Ben Hurwitz. Born in London England ben was raised in California. He graduated Columbia University with a Bachelor's. Choose of Arts and computer. Science then got his master's in computer science from UCLA from their bedhead. It's first job at silicon graphics before joining Netscape founder. Marc Andriessen As a product manager when Netscape was acquired by AOL Ben Became Air Walls Vice President of ECOMMERCE he and mark left Netscape to Co found loud cloud eventually taking can you public and transforming it into enterprise software company ops where then grew the company to over one hundred million in annual revenue before selling it to HP for one point six billion once he laughed he joined forces again. With mark to create venture capital firm Andriessen Hurwitz which has invested in box facebook slack. Instagram an Airbnb to name a few. I caught up with Ben for this. PODCAST here's perspectives on raising capital leadership. Choosing the right career and to learn more about his new book. What you do is who you are. What should entrepreneurs do to prepare for a pitch meeting with you. And what is your criteria for which companies you invest in. Well I think they should have have their business articulated as clearly as they can. I mean I over prepare. I mean it's their job is to come in. Describe what they're doing. I think if you over presented it will presenting not like what you're actually doing but what you think we wanna hear which is always a mistake and gee I mean our criteria a very allowed. I mean like our main criteria is is an original breakthrough idea and can the entrepreneur built a company. Those are It's a primary criteria. Yeah what qualities do these type entrepreneurs have that you know you find consistent across all successful entrepreneurs. Yeah well you know. It's not very consistent assistant in general Entrepreneurs coming lots of different shapes and sizes. I would say the one thing that they all have in common is they have to be original bankers They have to be able to come up with their own brand new. Take on the world and how they're going to prove it and that's a pretty rare rare thing and one of my favorite is when my favorite questions is Peter. Teal's question whether you believe that nobody else does. Because it's very difficult question to prepare for or because whatever you say by definition the personnel asking. It isn't GonNa like the answer because nobody believes what you're about to say unless you say something unoriginal original so you know I I I would take far. That's the one thing that you have to have. A thing is leadership skills which are also come in many many many different styles but at the end of the day people have to want to work for you and be motivated to do. So and without that you're not really gonNA build anything interesting. What what have you learned. From studying successful leaders of the past and present on on how to create highly engaging and productive organization that lasts yes so a lot From leaders of the past. Actually Mrs One of the kind of big topics of my new book and I I take you know. Maybe the most interesting leader that I've learned from is Toussaint L'Ouverture at the leader of the Haitian Revolution who was able to read program slave culture into a military culture and when the only successful slave revolt in human history and you know many of the ways that he did did it or one very innovative but very relevant today For example one of the techniques that he used was to create rule. That was so kind of shocking. Absurd that a change behaviors for example. One of the things that he needed to do was bill. Trust in the army because trust is probably the most important cultural element in a military operation. And then if you don't trust the order you kind of degenerate into the Byzantine generals problem and you you can't function and so then you know coming out of slave culture where there isn't a lot of long term planning because you don't even own your own tomorrow ends up being a very kind of fragmented. Trust Hannah Culture. So he had to convert that one of the things he did is he made it kind of required. That officers don't cheat on their wives. which which was very absurd in the kind of very extremely rough raping and pillaging kind of era of French colonialism and the European Paris French army the British army in the Spanish army vying for control of the colony but that rule change or that rule let everybody know his organization mad like commitments? Your word are the most important thing in Tucson families said. I'd rather relinquish Mike Man than break my word and in that kind of thing that can enroll what can really change a culture gonna did for him in. He ended up not only winning army delivering more casualties to Napoleon than he had Waterloo Waterloo. But also kind of what was known as most kind of disciplined in coach. He's about the. How'd you align what you do in who you are in terms of your values and just in terms of work styles and whatnot with the right company. Yeah well I think that part is pretty easy to figure out. You know as you're going in like if you're the company I think it's pretty important to communicate clearly your work style your culture in your your values up front candidates so that they know what that is and what they're getting into and then as a candidate. I think there are some questions that are pretty easy to ask. That will will enable you to figure out like whether to fit for you You know like hey if I get an email on Friday night. Do you want that thing turned around Friday night or Monday morning. is like a pretty easy question to get what we were just talking about so It's important like you go someplace where you'RE GONNA fit. There's a lot more opportunities for entrepreneurship than to own on yourself on your arm businesses. And what's your the best piece of career advice. Don't listen to your friends. That's my best career advice for young people you know. They want to know what their friends are doing or graduating reading from the same school as they are whatever. Their friends that they're hanging out with your friends may be able to figure out what they WANNA do with their life. They're gonNA be able to figure out what you WANNA do with your life and so when you ask people for career advice they give you the advice for them but you need the advice for you and the advice for you has to come from you ultimately so so. Don't listen to your friend. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom band to follow. His journey can read a book. What you do is who you are finding on facebook instagram and twitter where he shares pictures issues of celebrities. Travels Live appearances causes. He supports and business perspectives. We hope you enjoyed today's show. And the amazing advice. Our guests is provided. Remember that you can only benefit from advice.

"dan shah" Discussed on 5 Questions with Dan Schawbel

"Alam. My goal is to create the best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by ask them just five questions. My I guess. Today as Chairman CEO Co-founder Blackstone Steve Schwartzman born in Huntington Valley Pennsylvania. Steve went to Abington Senior High School. Before enrolling thing in Yale University when he graduated he had a brief stint in the US army reserve before enrolling and graduating from Harvard. Business School Steve's first job was at Investment Bank Donaldson Lufkin and generate then. He became a managing director at Lehman. Brothers at age thirty one before co founding the blackstone group with his former boss and former CEO of Liman. Peter Peter Peterson today. Blackstone manages about five hundred forty five billion in assets with over seven billion in annual revenue. Leaving Steve with a network of over seventeen billion. I the opportunity to visit Steve at New York City offices to talk about the lessons. He's learned and it's business perspectives. That are captured in his book. What it takes for Dad. When you were growing up operated a linen store and instead of expanding was really successful. He decided not to. He's very content content. What did you learn from that experience. And how did that. How was that incorporating jurors thinking moving forward. Well I've learned to people who are much different and just because you can do something something. A lot of people don't want to do that and I found as as my Careers evolved that that sometimes you can even tell competitors what you're thinking of doing an you think it's a great idea and almost always a sort of look at you and say that's interesting. And then they go about their day so so I learned that even though my dad was super smart much smarter than I was and a ham of his need to to overwhelm something create. Something of what wasn't there. An and people are very reluctant often to to change their habits their decision making looking looking at something new. I don't know why that is. They think it's risky or just unfamiliar And it's a great advantage for those of us who who don't have eh Problem what do you think it is about you to have the ambition to build such a big company to have so much influence in power. How in the world that really drove you whereas other people might not have wanted to build. Something is significant. Sort of like playing sports Somebody throws you the ball you WanNa put it in the hoop right Or if it's football. He threw the ball. You WanNA catch it And so this is a series of of of games if you will and if they're played against better teams it's still basically the same game you're just trying to win And as you have more ambition if you will you you're playing against it's better players and it makes it more interesting and so the drive is always the same. It just depends what scale You want to get to and these things don't happen. As part of an organized plan they come as a series of opportunities. And if you see a great opportunity how can you not do it. It's you create something very substantial with with virtually richly no risk Because I I don't believe in taking risks. I never WANNA start. Anything I don't think is a is an easy success. Most entrepreneurs don't see the risk which is why they take the risk of but most entrepreneurs Arno who is right. Yeah I'm very successful especially at at at your level and you've donated over a billion dollars to charities. How do you select what causes to donate to. And what is the criteria. Jeff for that selection. Well that's a great question Because the people who work with me as the same question and part of it is is just a consequence absolutes of of things that you haven't be interested in an somebody bringing you a proposal. I get proposals all the time. All you have to do is look a little little bit prosperous and they find you You know everybody wants money for something that is inevitably pretty good cause and so that has to be something that strikes you as a person something in your experience. Something that a problem. You want to address risona who has a huge network multiple going the dollars unlimited resources. What can money not by that brings happiness into your life. You have to be able to enjoy. Beautiful sunset sunset You have to like being on the water with You know sort of the the wind in your face you you have to delights. Do Athletic things you have to like. You Know Great Food and beautiful music and and elegance and you don't need to be uni dimensional. That's like a waste And money doesn't facilitate all of these things A lot of Moore Murville for the taking and you have to have that sense of balance and elegance of execution of of whatever. You're doing just just a walk. You know looking at beautiful things. Beautiful Environment you know. That's pleasure says so financial wherewithal. His is good stuff you know. It helps Obviously Day to day life or or logistics of but the content that you have has nothing to do with that type. What's your best piece of advice to something you love. You may not find it when you start. Get a good foundation for your first job. Learn things don't be too impatient watch but other people have done in terms of worthy. Oh the leave and when they start something else and what the record was my. My experiences. People tend to leave things. Absent Tech Tech leave too early before they've really learned enough lessons and then they're confronted with situations that they don't know how to handle. Oh so well. And then they make a mess. It's it's one thing to make a mess within an organization where somebody can help coined it up when you're alone and you make a mess. You got nowhere to hide. You have no one to really help you and then it can bring you down or damage your your career. Because you can't get back on the learning track so you have to be careful when when you make a move to change. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom Steve to follow his journey can read his book.

"dan shah" Discussed on 5 Questions with Dan Schawbel

"Shaw Bell as your host might go secrete the best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just five questions. My guest today is the twenty fifth. US secretary her tariff Defense Ash Carter born Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Ashes father was a doctor military veteran and his mother was a teacher after graduating. Abington Senior High School. As the president of the honor society. He went to Yale. College then became a Rhodes scholar at the University of Oxford from nineteen ninety three to nineteen ninety-six. Ask served as the assistant stint secretary of defense for International Security Policy during President Bill Clinton's first term during this time he was responsible for strategic affairs including the US nuclear weapons weapons policy. He continued to work his way up the hierarchy until two thousand fourteen. When President Barack Obama appointed him to be the twenty fifth. US Secretary of defense after after over thirty five years of service. Ashra book called inside the five sided box about what he learned during his time at the Pentagon in this episode ash gives us his insider sided perspective of his decision making process relationship with the troops and advice that's applicable to our lives outside the five sided box. Most people don't understand how alumini both the Pentagon employees larger than stabs of GE Amazon. The world's largest company so talk about the responsibility walkability of manner gain in working with so many people hiring firing through what that's like in some of her decision making process to big responsibility. But it's if you think about it. A lot of important things in life with making sense of people can wake up in the morning. Their kids send him off to school. Tom Go to work live. Their lives dreamed your dreams. You can only have that if you got security secure. You don't think about if you don't you think about nothing. He also is. It's like oxygen regard and we provide that that oxygen and so wonderful. Wake up in the morning and that's a lot of responsibility but it's really noble thing to do stuttered hold your at the garden. Workforces battlefield other countries. I was talking about empathy before this. How do you guys them and connect with them everywhere. Every every place for people to avoid compute Dr Joao her their only job faced with abandoning. And I'd always tell them to this. The first is wire here with me. This and the second thing I tell is how noble their mission and how proud I was a and they would understand. That knows talking to them. I wasn't only Sarpi to them. I was talking to their families and I would stand out in the one hundred twenty res. The Desert Afghanistan and or rock and Shake Hands I.. I'd see the leaders of the country and Mike Commanders. I'd always always goes to the troops and every time. I should have a picture of me and we would give those pictures to kids and send them home and nat pictures. GonNa show up as get sent home mom. It's going to show up on her bedside table or the mantle and she doesn't know the sector defenses dances and don't care but she wants her loved one in that issue to look like they're doing something really really important. There is the secretary you can tell you tell suit. Can you see the flag and I.. I wanted to look at that picture too. Great for the whole family. I I think little things like that in a big organization or beef things. Yeah the word con. Dao were most associated with you mentioned. That's who you hire. That's part of why you fire back part of why dress the way. This is the first time I've wore for a SEC. A separate in bitterly two years. Just tell me more about your personal conduct impact. You think that's mere career. It's into rare to go through thirty seven years of uninterrupted garment and I was always in Washington and I was always a close enough adviser that I was a special boy and I never was investigating for it now. Why is that. I quater did anything but secondly I never even got close to and there's so many ways that you can cut corners corners or seemed to cut corners and in public life. I think in life in general but but you can't have that kind of thing in the profession of arms warfare and in leadership of something serious depends on the need habit either. What is the responsibility all year. During turbulent times and what are the first few steps being able to handle that and being able to connect with the report that they're confident that you've ever will be when you entered what I'll call a crisis situation You're usually any sense. You know you don't really know what's going on therefore you can't really know what you're supposed to do. The worst thing in the world is not to say or do anything leader so the question is at what do you do in a crisis when and you know you don't know all the facts and here's my advice. Don't be styled. If you're silent the worshippers will okay going and you will seem feeble indecisive and that takes away the room that you need to do the right thing. Whatever this crisis turns out. So you need to say something. I just say a few facts that will satisfy people. Aw that you're willing to speak. You're not trying to hide anything. Don't go out and tell them everything you don't know because then you look foolish eventually. Eventually you will know you wanNA show communist so say would you now. Secondly even though you don't understand the situation you can't know what old ashes tape do something. Give your people instructions. They crave that because they they need to know that everything's GonNa be okay and they'll play a role once these curve us. People ask me all the time they say I met her four here and I've got I've narrowed it down to Jude Joyce's and what I really WanNa do is eh Eh but if I do not do it but it. It'll lead to this thing. And they had this whole billiard shot. We're finally after bouncing scene often number of cushions and go to law away doing a bunch of things they don't WanNa do finally knock ball pocket. My advice is to do you. Ask Yourself when you wake up tomorrow. We're you rather be going to work. And that's not a self-indulgent plot is eh lodge goal instrumental thought. 'cause if you wake up tomorrow and do something that you you really like you too well and that will carry you forward. You'll excel at if you do something that you just think is. I had a longer Shane. Indeed you do it poorly and it won't lead anywhere So I think it's both Good emotional advice but mm-hmm more importantly it's good instrumental advice INNIS. That's the important. That's what I find myself in my own. Life does the advice. I'd give anybody thank you so much for sharing your wisdom ash to follow this journey. COMEDIANS book inside the five sided box and fight him on instagram and twitter where he shares his live appearances media interviews and his book a tour to watch the full extended video version of this episode.

welcome to the fifty third episode of five questions Dan Shaw Bell as your host my goal is to create the best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just five questions my guest today is the CO founder her and the first CEO of Net flicks Marc Randolph born in Chappaqua New York mark's father was a nuclear engineer his paternal great grand uncle was go now says Pioneer Sigmund Freud and his paternal great uncle was pr legend Edward Bernice after he graduated college in one thousand nine hundred one he began working at Cherry Lane Music Company based in New York and was in charge of the small mail order operation it was there where he learned marketing techniques how to sell music directly to customers and use technology to track buyer behavior mark continued to gain experience building direct to consumer marketing operations at Borland then at various silicon valley startups becoming a founder of integrity Qa a year later pure a tree acquired his startup and CEO read Hassi's retained mark as vp of corporate marketing later that year rational software acquired bureau trio for eight hundred fifty million market we decided to join forces to lodge Netflix in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight with mark as CEO I sat down with Mark Learn more about his fascinating background hear stories from his new book that will never work and get advice on everything from pitching ideas overcoming criticism you from a family of overachievers in Pioneers Hound Bay influence you growing up so one thing in my household there was always this the two of risk taking the point I was outdoors guy and I would come home one came home and told my dad handling caving and rather than being one of those dads what are you nuts yet crazy it was always like oh it sounds great so every junction it was always take the riskier path the other thing kind of interesting that for our family when someone said no that was more the cue that it was time to try and figure out awesome way to work around this so I've never been a person who takes no for an answer yeah I'd read that your big into pitching why do we pick your mom and your co founder what makes a good pitch to investors to anyone influence them to buy into your as a person in your business idea well actually in the book talk about not explicitly by pitching but about asking and the story they told the Book of course is that it's so much about pitching or asking I was leading trips for urban youth they were outdoors trips we take kids from inner city bring them out into the wilderness where they're totally disoriented and so someone had the great idea that the staff should have an experienced equally disorienting and so they soften the streets in Hartford with no money wallet no ide- No watch nothing and said we'll pick you up in three days and you get hungry so I decided well I I I begin stealing food by swooping in after someone gets up at the food court and cutting out the middleman and I began panhandling and what you learn when you ask for money just the naked ask give me something nothing in return is eventually the way to do it is to be on I am to be vulnerable and reveal your voice in your words your body what you're looking for and in that case it was hungry but when you're looking for money raising money in a pitch it's really letting people know that this is not yes I believe in this and here's why I think I'm vulnerable here's why we're strong and people see those things but the ultimate skill this is not learned the streets Hartford is empathy you have to understand in advance how what you're saying is going to be perceived by somebody how were the offer you're making going to impact that person because his trade as it is business walked repeated the win win so much more powerful than than you are and so you're going to do what I said yeah that's a really good point eight with the idea early on but what does it take to overcome that and continue to follow the path that Leinster your dreams and goals whether anybody who's ever had an idea has had that exact same thing that you and I had you wake up only this great idea and you can't wait to tell someone in rushing down you tell your wife you tell your kids you come to work and tell your co workers and you're right they all say the same thing which is after work and then they helpfully tell you all the reasons so stupid but my favorite saying is actually it comes from William Goldman as a screenwriter but he wrote a nobody knows anything talking about Hollywood no one knows of movies going to be successful until after its launch and every ideas like that really. no-one knows so to answer the question one preamble you have to venturi realize they have no idea this so-called experts they have no idea whether it's going to work or not the only way to find out which were the only off my book is going to be good the only article is going to resonate the only way older it's going to get accepted is to write it try it pitch it and see what happens yeah and different from Your Business Partner you've kind of been a little behind the scenes I know you've been in

Obviously we've all fall in love with Daniel Jones kind of off the board here. which young quarterback would you want want for the next five years young quarterback? Would you want for the next five years. Not your obvious choices here. We're going to Daniel Jones Baker Mayfield as cuyler Murray now Jacoby percents. Oh so once you get mono they forget about you. It's only gonNA while you're not on the field to give us some game tapes that we can't really let's see how good you are me. That makes you stand out as you know in yesterday's show wait till he follows it up with rickets and scurvy dysentery would be unfortunate cholera. Okay I got these are all significant actual illnesses and diseases from the Oregon trail video game right yeah so you're posting the rich Eisen show on twitter vote now. Give us a call Daniel Jones Jones Baker Mayfield cuyler Murray Jacoby percents have we received already knew nicknames from on our rich Eisen. Show twitter feed the I I heard the the Dan Schayes right the the dance. John is a lot to be giving you grief though like being the same guy that tried to push the Matchel and the patch role. Excuse me so you can't really chime in your day. Danny dimes isn't a good nickname okay now to that. May I resort sure thank you short. I have this Richard Shut up. I saw that on Fox News last night. Shut up no here's my retort the Matchel plays as all of his name and rid rid him of a nickname about a beard sugar. This is way before the chugging of the beers became I'm a metric by which quarterbacks are measured in the NFL guy yes so this is just understand how far the first ballot all of Fable Kate. This is. That's how far back it goes so to call him. The match role to remove Mattie is I just assumed knowing him and just seeing his outward demeanor and he's now a CEO Joe face font individual for the Atlanta Falcons. You can't be his Mattie is especially since natural. Ice Beers have been gone essentially essentially right. I mean it's a column right exactly so I tried to help him playing off the name the natural he's the Matchel and then Patrick mahomes showtime. is we own on the spot. We rejected it no matter the fact that his dad called him that back as a kid that just was rejected on the spot on on mass by the Monday night viewing and it's also our second our guests nickname sean showtime porter. I understand that but one I'm saying is those are maybe poor fits but Danny dimes a Duke University quarterback alliteration as a wordsmith. You would appreciate yeah but there's Danny dimes. Again sounds like a goodfellas character johnny two times Danny dimes okay Maury Maury the whig mouth. He wins again this week so he's a gangster. There's no there's no gangster to him. I I don't know if it's available in Mike del Tufo. 's Labyrinth that you have in front aww you Daniel Jones after he shot everybody up on on some. Did you have that Jay. It's okay if you don't don't okay back. He's probably got that deep somewhere. The guy doesn't have a single bone in his body that is outwardly gangster none because it gangster would have come up to the podium and and how do you like me now. Okay right like it's it's magic last year or Aura Lamar Jackson not bad for runningback right not bad for running back. I hear what you have to say. Guess what I use it as an I'm going to destroy my opponents using this fuel. That's IT Donovan mcnabb for Years War your he still does today and I got that the other day when I said Daniel Jones in my sixteen plus years I've never seen a more Kilifi draft choice and I got all the mcnabb stuff booed. I understand bye bye bye. Eagles fans who wanted by the way Ricky Williams Ricky Williams of all people right but one one I would say to that is that mcnabb was before my time hosting the draft and two there is less pot on online by the way that's not the way I was going to finish the sentence that's okay don't worry about it but and to mcnabb nab wore that for years to his benefit and Daniel Jones just didn't it. You just passed on it. There's no Danny dimes to that. Danny Danny dimes would have stepped up to the podium and said hey guess what Danny dimes today. Shut all your piles up. All you back page writers that supposed I didn't have this in me made fun of my goodwill hunting sounding general manager for over for drafting me thanks to falling in love with me three senior bowl snaps. How do you like you know he didn't do that so there's that but the the the Dan Shah's isn't too bad and I'm not sitting here saying the Daniel I will say this but here's the thing that we can move is New York forty on you got to move on didn't work out with the Sanchez and I'm going to you know I understand that I it can be made fun of here on on a show with my own name on it? I I have to be able to take it if I dish it out but I will use a rich Eisen show preemptory to say that that drop up the way it is has got to change because he said and rich you gotta move on. I love you but what you've got to move on and the I love you was edited out. I don't have any recollection bombing really under remember that was you're it was edited to make it seem worse than it was. I think so and I tried to give them one less. The one time I will give you this though and then we can move on that I I strayed and I went too far with the whole match. Nickname was to go to Stafford after Ryan rejected it knowing knowing that those guys are best friends and Stafford if he wanted it now matt has no he's got he's got no nickname stafford know victim nine. Just call you nicknames. You can't just be called by your now it took brady forever to get the TB twelve right yeah he had that create that company and the his brand some guys just don't have a nickname and Daniel Jones is going to be that guy. It does not matter how many times he does what he did. Danny dimes blows us. That is a drop all right. We got bubba Montana Montana. Let's take his call where riffing here. We'll get you news in a second go for BUBBA. What's up man how you doing rick what's going on Bubba well? I'm sitting up here watching some people load. Hey and I was listening to the radio. 'cause we finally got the radio station back up here in Montana but watching some those load. Hey and I think you should call him. I'm Daniel the professor. The professor is not a bad one and so there's also a history in new liked professor on Gilligan's island. Get the ladies eighties you know get the ladies and I called pump up my broncos but only thing they need to pump up the tires on there is there is southbound us so thank you great talk me. I've been watching the crying or a guy like that better than the other fellas may dress in the morning on Sunday bubble bless you you know what the Professor Right now the hazing that barn the professor on Gilligan's silence. I'm looking at a picture right now had a great tan he did. He's Roy wrinkly Casey stangl. There's a history in New York City of being nicknamed the professor professor what was called the professor not a bad one. Dan Daniel Jones taught the bucks a lesson today okay all right. I see where he's the professor he's from Duke. He's a smart guy okay. The best nicknames aren't playing off off of somebody's name and I say that as trying to force the natural for all these years the bus right what a great name the bus because he's taking people to School Jerome Bettis the bus write these down by the way I you can't beat phone calls to begin again with. I'm I'm watching people in the born from Bubba from bubba in Montana love it what's our poll question. Results Okay really stand right here all right which quarterback young quarterback would you want for the next five years and everybody tweeting me Patrick Mahomes and to Shawn Watson Lamar Jackson I get it. They're awesome. We're not debating how great they are. We're talking about these young quarterbacks who are unproven at the moment Daniel Jones Baker Mayfield coury jacoby percent forty four percent Baker Mayfield right now twenty two percent Daniel Jones eighteen percent jacoby seventeen percent cower Moran. Everyone still on Baker everybody's still dylan on him. I mean I think I take was debating if he was overrated or not yesterday after my Gosh Rex Ryan called overrated on get up I'll again but if you rex is season full hype magazine profiles all these commercials got to back it up man. It's just tough for me as a jet fan here rex. It's just tough just tough and I'm sure for bills fans to Ravens fans. They know what he can do oh last. AM to justify to win foxborough you say when rex showed up in New York. It's exactly what the jets needed swagger somebody to say. Hey we've got this town town to Amac Kissing Bill Bell checks rings problem is you got to back that up and the ground and pound jets got as far as the AFC championship game two years in in a row and you have to give it up to rex for that but the the moges disappeared disappeared Gino Smith Mr T. Mike Tannenbaum over over capped the the the team and their window close their window closed and they've just ran into big Ben and Peyton manning but it's tough to hear rex evaluate alleyway quarterbacks you just as once upon a time he knew how to get them off the spot and destroy him and then he just he just couldn't get one just couldn't evaluate him Baker Mayfield you think he's overrated the guy that we let me say I don't. I don't think he's struggling to start this here but he's got a new head coach. I'm telling you the wage rives the ball. He can drive it man. Oh the ball flies out of his hand. He can drive it those those his throws over the middle that takes some time to to develop he can get it in their man..

"dan shah" Discussed on 5 Questions with Dan Schawbel

"Welcome to the thirty fifth episode of five questions with Dan Shah bell as your host my goal. It the best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just five questions. My guest today. Songwriter producer author Moby Borden. Richard Melville hall in Harlem, New York City Moby was named after Herbert Melville, who authored the classic Moby Dick, his father died in a car crash will drinking when he was only two years old. His mother struggled to support him relying on food stamps and welfare to make ends meet his first job was as a caddy on a golf course then took up music when he turned nine Moby play guitar and his mom taught him how to play the piano in one thousand nine hundred eighty three he became the Qatar for the punk bad. The Vatican commandos and started producing electric music after dropping out of college, he pursued his career DJ, eventually siding with instinct records in the mid nineteen ninety s in one thousand nine hundred nine Moby released his fifth, and most well known album entitled play which soul. Old over twelve million copies worldwide, any went on tour for almost two years. He's written two memoirs porcelain and his latest, Thanet bala- part, which will be discussing in this episode in the book you talk about how you grew up in poverty in the long term impact, that's avenue. Can you describe that? Yeah, I grew up in Darien Connecticut, which is one of the per capita, one of the most affluent places in the world. But my mom and my dad died quite young, and so my mom and I lived in dairy, and because the schools were good, but we were on food stamps, we were on welfare. She was unemployed allot, so until I was eighteen years old. I never met another poor person and growing up poor in an affluent, and such an affluent environment. Is very disconcerting in a lot of ways because you have a constant sense of inadequacy a constant sense of shame. You know, you can't really bring people back to your house. You have to know. Pretend that the clothes you're wearing didn't come from Salvation Army, or will. So even now I mean, I've had you know, the circumstances of my life changed a lot, but I still feel like you know, if you grow up poor to some extent, you'll always self identify as being a porchet when you were at your lowest point, what was the first thing you did start to revive yourself. Bottomed out as an alcoholic and just a an emotional mess for pretty longtime. There's about six years from two thousand to two thousand eight when I finally got sober and. That bottoming out as I said it wasn't just like one or two episodes was hundreds and thousands of daily misery. And when I finally sort of emerged from it. Emerging involved admitting to myself that the things I thought were going to bring me happiness and meaning didn't, you know, whether that was fame, affluence, degeneracy depravity, you know. You know, alcohol drove all the thing that I relied on CNN happy, I had to finally mitt they weren't working. And then there's that huge challenge when you accept that the things in your life art working, but you don't have the skill set to replace them. So you have to start like humbly, cautiously assessing the other things in your life to figure, what does actually work in who are some positive influences Dalby get through that tip. And it's funny 'cause we're sitting on weaker and Elizabeth between building mountain Elizabeth. And when I was drunk, I mean, the first time I got drunk and this neighbor who was nineteen seventy eight so forty one years ago. And but I also got sober in this neighborhood, and the best teachers, I had in sobriety where the old alcoholic and a, you know, I mean, also because we're a block away from the Bowery so like AA meetings around here, especially awhile ago really gritty. You know, it wasn't like fashion stylists, who had may be had like too many glasses of Chardonnay. It was like bottomed out, Bowery drunks, who had like lost kidneys and had hepatitis seat. Like really bottomed out people, but their wisdom their simple simple and it was very unconventional at times, like. Remember this all Valerie drunk saying to me, once he said, he's basically, the key to happiness is selflessness and spirituality. This is like eight year old bottomed out our drunk, who's probably still homeless. And he said, it's he said, if you focus on spirituality and service, he said, you'll do. Okay. And I thought he was full of nonsense. Turns out he was hundred percent. Correct. Yeah. And you talk about mental health, and both are up from, as I depression is somewhat of mental health crisis in America and you everywhere in the world. People are feeling it who how do you best deal with mental health, your mental health and then, like the being at the other people that are interesting. I think first and foremost, easiest is the physical side. You know, I mean thoughts are complicated. Emotions are complicated personal histories are complicated and trying to understand thoughts and emotions and our personal histories like fair challenging, but our bodies that we can kind of understand, you know, like if you eat garbage you're going to be depressed, you're going to be second. You're gonna be depressed if you fill yourself with chemicals you're going to be depressed. So it's almost like, like I think there's the Buddha apparently said like you can't really have a troubled mind in a very healthy body. So it's like first and foremost, get healthy. And I think for a lot of people like remove the toxins, remove the super refined foods, remove the animal products, and you'll find that like a lot of depression, actually comes simply from your body trying to process stuff that it was never designed to process, and then once you've done that, and you can with the degree of clarity address, your thoughts address your. History address your feelings, and what's your best piece of crew? My best piece of career advice is might sound like a cliche, but it's above all else, love what you do. That's nothing's more important than that. Because if you love what you do like, like why is tesla? What granted he Lonzo team? But like why did tesla dwell because he loves what he does? And why did apple become like the biggest corporation and human history? Because Steve Jobs, love what he was doing if you love what you're doing. It increases the chances. You'll be good at it. It increases the chances, you'll work harder at it getting creases the chances that you'll like work through adversity. It increases the chances that, ignore the haters, like, if you don't love what you do you will doubt yourself every step of the way if you love what you, do you will be so good at what you do, and you'll work so hard at it. And then, like, for example, music, like if I make a record and it's does well fine if I make a record and it fails, I don't really care because I'd love to working on, you know, so that's. Two most important piece of advice. I could have anyone just give up too quickly. Yeah. I'm going to see how many times have we people do that, like someone start something that they're not sure about it doesn't work out. So they stopped same thing. Start stop start stop like just love like being spied by the love for what you do. And you will work eighteen hours a day, and be happy constantly, thank you so much for sharing your wisdom Moby to follow his journey can read his book, then fell apart and find him on Facebook, Instagram. Twitter YouTube where he shares his new music travels political views and pictures of animals to support animal rights.

Our power chat start sound. Welcome to the thirty third episode of five questions with Dan Shaw bell as your host my goal secured the best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just five questions. My guest today is the co lead vocalist of kiss Paul Stanley, born in New York City to parents who were avid listeners of classical music, and opera Stanley took interest in the works of Beethoven growing up his right. Ear had a birth defect called my crochet. So he wasn't able to hear on that side and was bullied by other children because of it, but still enjoy listening to music at age thirteen. He received his first guitar and started playing songs by Bob Dylan and other artists after playing in a few local bands. He joined his friend, gene Simmons band wicked Lester, which eventually fell apart, then they formed kiss releasing their first album in nineteen seventy four each member of kiss took the persona of character on stage and Paul chose the star child over the course of his career kiss has become one of the best selling bands of all time, with one hundred. Hundred million records sold with mega hits, including rock and roll all Nite shouted out loud. And I was made for loving you in two thousand fourteen he and kiss were inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of fame. Paul is the author face the music and its latest book backstage pass he and kiss a currently on their farewell tour. What do you think has allowed you to sustain your career for decades? I think the, the key due to ongoing success is loving what you're doing. I it the, the keywords always passion. I think that success comes with the joy of doing something that you love, if you're in purely for the success of it, then you saying that much more chance of, of losing it if you're doing something because you enjoy it, and because you believe in it, you get to sustain yourself through the times that aren't great and all the times can't be great not, not in terms of. Being at the top of the heap, so to speak, and long-term success has its ups and downs. And, and what gets you through the, the down times is the passion you have for what you're doing. How can you be tough on your south are also being your biggest fan? I think if you're your biggest fan it should come from accomplishment, and it should it shouldn't be blind. Adulation nor should fan. Adulation blind. It, it needs to come with merit. And when we set a standard for ourselves, and we reach it, then that's something to be proud of. So I love what I I've done, and quite frankly, I, I'm, I'm proud of who I am. But I it's not without substance, whether it's parenting, or or how you help other people who are not in a position of good fortune, like. You are that the list is endless, but those, those are the things that really count. How does making others feel worthwhile? Improve our own lines. When you make someone else feel good, hopefully it makes you feel good because it empowers, you and it lets you know that you've done something to make this a better world. And that's something to, to feel satisfaction and pride. And I really believe that giving is is, is it's own reward to the person who gives. And that's something that perhaps, I found later in life, but it it not only changes your outlook, it changes, how you view the world. It it's a much more positive way to look at things. How do we overcome the barriers we inherit or create we overcome the barriers by refusing to be victims of. Victim in in one sense, or another compromises their own life because instead of rolling up their sleeves and changing things, and it doesn't mean perfection. But it means improving things if you're not willing to do that, then, the only life that is compromised as yours and really seems Awasthi of good time as far as I know, we're only here once so we need to make the best of it. And if we're sitting around looking for pity or pitying ourselves, it means that we're we're not moving forward. And what's your best piece of career advice? Do what you love do something, you're passionate about because success is never guaranteed. But if you love what you're doing that will drive you forward and perhaps lead you to success, but success starts by by loving what you do that. It is a success in itself.

You know, so does the world end check my Email at night on the weekends. If I don't check my Email like if something's really that they can text me. I'm not carrying cancer. Selling handbags. So I think I as a had one two three children. It's just been important to me to start setting those boundaries. And I think it's fair for people that don't have set those boundaries to I've had plenty of staff say, hey, I don't wanna be talked to on the weekends or nights, unless it's urgent and I think that's we all need to start doing because you'll just be fried, your mentors in the industry, that have had a real positive. I am not a fan of the word mentor because I think that people attached as idea that they're going to have someone who's going to hand them success on the platter. I think I've had women that have taught me to work hard, the first CO the company, she taught me to work, incredibly hard. But she didn't teach me anything other than if you want something, you got to figure it out, and then, you know, the first sales person for the bags really challenged me, but she wasn't teaching me anything. She just made me look at myself and figure stuff out. So I think you can find those people all around, you don't have to reach to like the CEO company. If she's not my mentor, then I'll never be successful. Like I always say, you know, mentorship is next. You below you, it's meeting someone who knows something that you don't know, your offices with all these great employs. Keep them motivated to continue to come up with new ideas invention. I think the one thing we want is we want everyone to feel like an entrepreneur within their zones. So no one's in a box. No just has that role. If someone hasn't that idea, we wanna hear it, and I think they see what we're doing behalf of women. And so two really exciting place to work because they know that, you know, as a company and as something that's personal me. We want to change the equality game for women. And so they're here as part of that mission. And what's your best piece of groups? I think your best piece of prayer to lean on your network. There really are six degrees, separation between you and I wanna get to and to make those asks, don't be afraid of. Now, I will all time. And I think just having the courage to pull yourself out there again. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom, Rebecca to follow her journey.

Welcome to the thirtieth episode of five questions with the end Shaw bell as your host my goal secured. The best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by ask them just five questions. My guest today is. New York Times off calmness bestselling author David Brooks or an Toronto Ontario. He spent his childhood in New York City and then Philadelphia in one thousand nine hundred eighty three he graduated from the university of Chicago with a degree in history during school he wrote reviews and satirical articles to campus publications upon graduation. He was the police reporter for the city news bureau of Chicago, which influenced his conservative political views, then he was an intern at the national review when that ended he spent time at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and wrote movie reviews for the Washington Times two years later, the Wall Street Journal hired him to edit the book review section in two thousand books penned his first book called Bobo sin paradise that new upper class in how they got there in two thousand three he became an op-ed columnist for the New York Times since then he's written several other books, including his latest the second mountain the quest for moral life, which will be discussing this episode. Do we have to achieve personal goals before serving others? No, I. People some people do their second. And I what I do think you have to do is you can't live in the go. And so like a lot of people I sort of grew up wanting start my career wanting to make a Mark on the well known and those were ego driven goals, and if you're driven by the goals of the go, you're on the move, you're working. You're not really committing yourself to other people into relationships. So I do think something has to shock you out of the go and get to down living within your, heart and soul. You're longing. For others. You're longing to do something. Good. And for me. It was a valley. I think some people get blasted out of their ego by some great love, call them with something a cause or a person, but something has to happen for you to just live at the center of yourself and not at the surface of yourself. Why is commitment the key to creating a meaningful life? So I tasted freedom at one point. I was at remarriage, and I was living alone. And one thing I learned so I had a life of total freedom. I could do what I want. I could move where I wanted. I befriend who I wanted. And I learned that freedom sucks. Like political freedoms great economic freedoms pretty good, but social freedom sucks 'cause you're attached. You're remembered, and you're isolated you have no real commitments. And the people who remembered have given themselves away usually to family or to vacation or a community or two loss of your face. And those people are planted to down and those people have really tight relationships and the 'cause they serve is not just themselves. That's the thing. They are in love with what's the best way to overcome loneliness. Make friends, you know, pay attention other people and one thing I learned when I was in the value can't pull yourself out on your own. You have somebody to reach down and pull your pull you out and show you a better way of living. And I just got lucky I got involved in really a second family community of people, but forty DC kids age seven seventeen to twenty two and then maybe ten adults more my age, and we would just meet every month and just throw our crap on the table in total owner ability, and those kids really showed me how to do relationship and how to live a much more. Open what they have is motion transparency. You know, what they're feeling all the time. And they gave that gift to me a little and so I I was listed out by the generosity of others. And why should we choose attachment over personal freedom because if you s people on their deathbed, what is their life was the most important thing in their life. Ninety nine percent of them will say my family, my friends, they always talk about relationship. And if there's one thing we know about joy, it's what emerges out of relationship. I make this distinction in the book between happiness and joy happiness is when you when victory and get promoted your team wins. The SuperBowl yourself expands, and that's good happiness is good. But joy happens when the self transcend self you forget the self you're out of nature, and you sort of feel merge with you've nature or you're in love with somebody and you feel merge with them or you're serving a civil rights 'cause and you feel merged with your fellow protesters in in pursuit of something. Just and those happiness is good. But joy is better. And if we ain't or joy our life will go well. What's your best piece of career advice? I was given a good piece of advice early on when you get out of college say everything you never really know what you like. And you have to try things on the second piece of career advice is early in your career. Do something completely crazy because your horizon risk will be a lot wider than it would be. If you do something conventional your horizon Riskoul stay small third bit advices pay attention to density capital that say if you can do something interesting than forever after an every job interview in every dinner conversation. People will ask you what was it like to be a yet, Kurt or in Mongolia, and you'll have peace of identity capital? And then the final thing I'd say is get to yourself quickly. A lot of people they have some far goal, but they should get a graduate degree before. I do that job or I should prepare this way before it you that. But it's usually best if you know sort of what you wanna do just start doing it and the practice of it is more valuable than anything else. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom.

Welcome to the twenty ninth episode of five questions with ancho bell. As your host my goal secured, the best vice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them, just five questions my guest. Today's actress police. Ical activists and podcast host. Elizabeth Lonzo born in Brooklyn, New York to a fashion designer mom and film using editor dad she began her career at the age of seven when she auditioned for the national touring company of Anne. She was selected from over fifteen hundred other girls for one of the top parts during the tour her and her mother were on the road for eighteen months. Then when they returned Elissa peered in several television commercials off Broadway shows eventually landed in agent Milano made her film debut in the coming of age drama old enough which won first prize at the Sundance film festival then had her big break as Tony danza daughter on the sitcom who's the boss since then she's had other famous roles, including on Melrose place. Charmed wet hot American summer. Ten years later in her latest. Netflix is insatiable her latest project is our podcast called. Sorry. Not sorry where she tackled social political and cultural issues as she speaks to key figures. How did your family influence of your? Early career family was actually totally unsupportive of my career started out, which I think is why I'm somewhat of a normal human being because I didn't have staged parents. I had parents that very much had an have their own lives and livelihood. So their lives did not revolve around their child. And I think a lot of times when you see the child actors that grow up in the industry and that maybe make bad choices. It's because they're rebelling like any normal child does. But they're actually rebelling in a way where it hurts the financial aspect of the family unit. My parents never came with me on the set of who's the boss actually had a guardian and your later when I asked my mom, why they did that my mom said because it was important to me have food on the table when you got home for dinner after work and also I had another child and it was important for me. To be able to pick up that child from school and show him that he was, you know, also an important member of the family, how do people overcome the fear of trying to break into your history and all the rejection that comes from edition ING and really putting yourself out there. I think that part of the industry is rejection, and as soon as you can look at the people going hand in hand than the rejection becomes less catastrophic. When it happened if you can bury wisely and simply look at coming into this industry as maybe five percent gory and ninety five percents struggle, and you have the nasty to still feel like a complete human being even though you will get more bad news than good news than those are the the actors that rise to the top that actually are able to have a lung Javadi in the industry people in the world. Try to break into this business. And if it was just about talent all of those people would replace other people. But I think there is an element. Where really not only is the is the industry about having this acidy to deal with the disappointment. But also about being in the right place at the right time. And and none of luck. And those people that the rise to the top. I'm times those people are not as worthy and sort of get up every morning and try again than I think I think you'll go very far in industry, when did you decide to become a political activist when I was fifteen years old and on who's the boss? I was sort of this weird pop culture teen idol, I guess, I don't know if that exists anymore. But I was it was during the height of my popularity which coincided with the stigma that came along with HIV aids HIV aids at the time was considered to be. A really? Oracle disease. It obviously still is dig MMA surrounding it, then became very politicized. And was really just put again, the LGBTQ community in a way that was really heartbreaking to watch. I had gotten a phone call one day from John C. Obviously, you take that phone call when you're fifteen actually take that phone call when you're forty six even any said, I have a friend named Ryan white. And he's like meet you Hannah. And Ryan white was really the first percent that came forward that was supposed be Haase's that had a story that people could not ignore. He was kicked out of school. He that HIV aids from a blood transfusion kicked out of school because the school that other children contract the disease from casual contact, and he fought the full and and won the right to go back to school. He also spoken. And when I met him, and I became great friends. And I was so taken by his strength, and courage inspired me greatly one day. He asked me if I go on television and him to prove that you could not get HIV aide Harold contact and I decided to do it. And that was the moment that made me an activist because I realized what power my platform could have in impacting, and creating a narrative that would hope people and the responsibility of that platform, and what it really meant. So I think that land really changed my life and really put what being the celebrity means into perspective for me. How do you stay true to yourself instead of conforming? Well, that's an interesting question, especially dealing with this aspect of social media that I think we have. This for most tribe set of values that I think is actually more hurtful than good. And then specifically this idea of, you know, criticizing in a way that feels like you're being bullied or gang up on. I think it can be harmful. Not only do, you know, your own sense of wellbeing and worse, but also to whatever movement you're priming for. So I think it's really really important to have people in your life that you can talk to that. You've downside is awesome. That use have similar ideologies or political affiliation. But beyond that, just similar morals code, and I think in my weakest places in my life. Meaning those those times when I have felt that perhaps I had gotten it on just to be able to have people in your life to either say, Yep. He's got that wrong or or no, you know there. This is this is something that you believe strongly, and that you should stay true to I think is really important honesty, having people in your circle that are going to be honest with you, and what's your best piece of career advice? Always have a plan b do not allow that one thing that you make your living off of be the one thing that makes you feel fulfilled. You always have to have other things that you can find in to that. When you feel as though your career is not on the trajectory that you would have you know, we all do that. When we're kids though. Yeah. By the time, I'm twenty five I wanna be at this point my career. And then by the time thirty five I should have a house, and a, you know, a wife or a husband. I think that it should have goals, but it's also good to find other ways to keep yourself fulfills and keep your heart. Filled and your brain fired. And sometimes that's not what you do at all for living. Thank you so much for share your wisdom Elissa to follow her journey. You can listen to our podcast. Sorry, not sorry.

Welcome to the twenty eighth episode of five questions with Dan Shah bell as your host my goal at the best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just five questions. My guest today is rapper and political activists killer, Mike born Michael santee ago, render in Atlanta, Georgia, he was the son of a policeman father and a florist mother in one thousand nine hundred five while attending Morehouse college. He met the producers the beat bullies and big BOI of Outkast his music debut was on outcast two thousand album stand Konia with the song snap and Trump. And and later was part of their single collaboration the whole world which won the Grammy award for best rap performance by a duo or group after being featured on Jay Z's album, the blueprint to he released his own album monster with the hit single Adidas. He has released other albums, including two I pledge allegiance to the grind albums pledge and rock music. He's been featured in films, including aqua, teen hunger force. Baby driver, south park, and is the host of trigger warning with killer. Mike on Netflix killer. Mike opened up a barbershop called graffiti swag barbershop in Atlanta with artwork honoring historical black leaders like Martin Luther King junior. He's been a social and political activists on topics like social equality police, brutality and racism, if you could change one thing about American politics. What would it be? And why? Hey question, you want to say the big audacious stuff, like let's take money out of politics, but the corporate greed out of politics and all that stuff is true. I just don't think it happens from a national perspective. I think that on a local level that needs to start. So on a very local level. I would want constituents to get radically and much more active on a local level. And the reason I would change that is because we look at all the national policy that's going on there. It started from local grassroots organizations pushing the line especially around issues like cannabis I would say for as long as I've been alive. I've seen an organization like normal try to push the line on their wanna legalization and that has morphed into what I will in my lifetime. See the ending of the drug war. I think that that certainly a local level the people who have suffered under the drug wars. You have more local control. I don't think, you know, the national festive for that would be civil rights bills. But I think the local level we should fight have respected that. I saw my Georgia to black people make up thirty five in Georgia. Now, there's no reason I was thirty five percent of the marijuana legislation should be allocated towards those people or at least a five ten percent marker for those people there most romantically things. So for me it before miracles get much more radically acting if I just had one sweeping national policy to pay it would be they're radically drove war interest in federal sentencing. Where does your entrepreneurial spirit come from black and as long as I've been alive in America. Black men have been greater employees, and then the other people. So it wasn't an option. It wasn't a spirit of dead overcame me. It was just your faceting. My grandfather worked a regular job five days a week. And then he does he he drove up truck on the weekend or a black man on several dump truck the drive so in my community, Allah falls back on the shit. I knew that land ownership whether it was renting or using the land of real props people money, and I knew that I was never fit to work for job. I also many. Job their money back because I was late from on them rows on his fight to work for the how do you we've been your social and political messages into your music and Netflix show, I weaving in just doing that. I understand that people don't wanna be preached to. And I'm in no way of creature or I don't declare myself a lead over the organization that's gonna March you minor league into a new future. But I am is a regular guy that managed to pick up that it is not trying to share that freely. But I am curious child at this. Why why not and I try to put those things in my music in my art, simply because I think that's what artists are supposed to do for supposed to challenge perception we're supposed to walk up to our own ears and math them. There was supposed to push aside. And you do this thing. So hopefully, I'm doing my part is in arts, how do you manage being a husband, father four and business odor? At once. That's a very difficult thing to manage to days ago. I was sitting with the billionaire at a breakfast table taking some protein on my business in how to help it grow. You know? Yesterday was hoping that stepping on. My wife's side all day was another husband had been murdered. And without even saying I knew that she did not want me out in the public and the taller may before you called was my daughter might eat who miss that. Because he was sleeping now. She's in Tennessee, and I was checking on her and her field trips. So I don't know how I do it. I just know that I do you know, what I what I do know is I'm no hero. And I'm not special because the thousands of mothers and fathers millions of process country that are doing much harder without, you know, much much harder work without the without the support system. I have I have heavily supported family, and I have the means to you know, to circumstance some things other people aren't so when I write just regular middle class day of my life is more reflective those people, so I go get my own. I take out my own trash much like the people who raised me did much like almonds, the millions of people around the world around the country with and what's your best piece of career advice? My best piece of career advice was something that was just given to me the hawks owner, duck dot com. Talk to him earlier in the year. He said make sure you save thirty percent of your gross. You know, make sure you're saving, you know, my daughter, and I gave her two hundred dollars per trip. We took thirty percent of it out into a mother said this is gonna be for your mother to say and the remainder will be will be your run is on the field trip and every dollar. You get you'll be saving thirty six because that's what ads from be on. So the Vesta Riyadh. Vice I think if anyone is to say because you know, once you start getting a little older like, I never understood my grandma. You don't wanna have to work as hard so say thirty cents on every dollar.

Welcome to the twenty seven episode of five questions with Dan CIA bell as your host my goal secured. The best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just five questions. My guest today is former CEO of HP in former US presidential candidate Carly Fiorina. Born in Austin, Texas to mother who was an abstract painter and a father who had a variety of jobs, including being a professor university. Dean deputy US attorney general and judge she frequently moved in her childhood living in London Ghana and North Carolina to name a few Carly studied philosophy in medieval history at Stanford University while working as a secretary during the summers while originally aspiring to be a pianist, she attended and eventually dropped out of law school Carly ended up getting an MBA from the Robert H Smith school of business at the university of Maryland and a masters at MIT's Sloan school of management in nineteen eighty. She started as a AT and T management trainee and eventually became the company's. I fee. Female officer as senior vice president and then led its North American operations in nineteen ninety five. She led corporate operations for Lucent Technologies. Playing a key role in an IPO, and then was named group president for their global service provider business in nineteen ninety eight fortune magazine named fear Rena as the most powerful woman in American business from nine hundred ninety nine to two thousand five she was the CEO of HP since leaving HP. She has served as chairman of good three sixty the world's first product philanthropy organization as chairman of opportunity international, a Christian based organization that lifts millions out of poverty around the globe through microfinance and chair and CEO of the feary foundation that donates to a variety of important causes. Fear. Eater ran for the United States Senate in two thousand ten and the Republican presidential nomination two thousand sixteen her new book is called fine your way unleash your power and highest potential. You talk about how you should find. Path instead of six to a plan. Can you explain that? Yeah. There's so many people who especially to get into corporate America Nate immediately start thinking about the plan, I need to be at this level. By this time, I need to make this much money by this year. They get so hung up on the destination. And what happens in my experience is they're so focused on the destination that they miss so many opportunities around them or they make so many sacrifices to achieve that destination that they're not at all they wanna be by the time they arrive or they arrive, and they figure out she this isn't what I wanted at all. And so my advice is don't get hung up on a plan but follow a path a path of how you behave a path of focusing on collaborating with others path on making a positive contribution of path of solving the problems right in front of you. And when you were growing up, you're moving from place to place to place how. That impacted your path. Well, I think it did because moving around a lot. You don't have much time to build or to sink deep roots? And that meant that I had to be very flexible, I had to learn how to get to know people quickly, and I learned to really love that. But I will also say that early on my plan blew up. I thought I was going to go to Las school. That's what my parents wanted me to do. I went to law school. And I hated it. And I faced this for me. Very excruciating. Dilemma DOI stick to this plan that I know I don't like or do I bitch the plan and have no alternative and just sort of find my way. And that's what I did. People say you, you must've had a plan to be a CEO. No, you must have been planning to run for president for years. No, I've never had a plan. But I hope I sick to the path. That's one of the big challenges. We all have whether it's you. I anyone. Who's listening at some point or multiple points? You're going to be stuck. So what's the first thing? So much ado when they feel stuck well when they feel stuck the first thing they should do is look around them and say where is there a problem that I'm impacted by that I understand because I'm close to it that others are impacted by. And how can I work with others and make it better? Because what happens when people focus on solving problems. They learn how to collaborate with others. It's a win win experience not a win-lose experience. But more than that when people focus on solving problems and changing the order of things for the better, which is the essence of leadership. They figure out how much potential they have. But they also help others figure out how much potential they also have. And that's really fulfilling where do you think men can learn from women about leadership? We know I think so often we confuse leadership with position entitle power wealth fame, and so often men because they more often have positions and titles and power. Unfortunately, still because men more often have those things they think, well, I have position entitled a big office. I must be a leader the position entitled doesn't make them a leader. So often people without position entitle are actually leading more effected with one of the stories. I tell them this book is of a woman who had no position. No title. No power. And yet she represents the purest example of leadership, I can find men need to learn. It's not about your. Position. It's not about your title. It's not about how many people report to you. It's about or you saw them from changing the order of things for the better. And importantly, are you unlock potential in others? Once your best piece of career advice. My best piece of career advice is don't get hung up on the plan. Don't worry about which job wherever you are. Do the best job you can solve the problems right in front of you look for others with whom you can collaborate and change order things better. Thank you so much for share your wisdom Carly to follow her journey could read her books and find her Facebook Instagram Twitter Langton where she shares her speeches media appearances, political views and motivational advice.

My guest today is New York Times bestselling author and the leader of the strengths movement, Marcus Buckingham born in London he grew up with a stutter leaving him unable to speak until age thirteen he overcame it by pretending to speak to one person instead of three hundred when addressing boys at his prep school. He was educated at Pembroke college. Cambridge graduated with a degree in social and political sciences in nineteen eighty-seven in school. He was recruited by professor Donald Clifton, the founder of SRI, which was later acquired by the Gallup organization. They're Buckingham was part of the team that worked on a survey measuring factors that contribute to employee engagement based on this research. He wrote its first book first break all the rules, which went on to settle. A million copies. He followed up with now. Discover your strengths and the one thing you need to know before launching his own company, the Marcus Buckingham company in two thousand six fast forward to twenty seventeen when ADP acquired the company and Buckingham became their co-head and talent expert his latest book that he co authored with Cisco senior vice president Ashley Goodall is called nine lies about work. A free thinking leaders guide to the real world. What's the best way to find your purpose? And align it to the right leaders and companies well, the best way to find your purpose is to take a moment and breathe in and breathe out. And think about when you are most clear thinking about what you instinctively lean into and for you, this something kind of authoritive and true about that. Like, you know, it as a certain kind of that we humans have when we feel like we're on. All right pot. It just feels different. And when my running running running running, it's really hard to stop and feel. That. So the first thing is taking time to stop and think about whether you must clear when you instinctively able to know this is the next move. I should make this is the next step. I should take. Because when you're in that kind of frame of mind, you're on your rights pause. The challenge to find the right leader. Of course, oh leader is a whole different ballgame. But it all begins with you knowing where is your PA. How can people discover their strengths and then use them to advance their careers and lives. But I know what you're good at weakness is not what you're bad at if something drains, you boys, you deplete she will you procrastinate it even if you're good at it. It's a weakness. A weakness is an activity that weakens U strength is an activity that strengthens you you may not yet be good at it. Good Obama's performance. But a strength is what strengthens you and there were signs early signs before you do an activity. You find yourself looking forward to it. Why are you doing time speed up you get into flow you doing it for five minutes? You look up at. In an hour when you're done with it. You may not be quite ready to saddle up and do it again. But you don't deplete don't drain. You don't like sank goodness ova. You'll in fact, you're magnified. You're invigorated you've got a different sensibility to you. When you're done with those are the three very obvious signs of strength. And of course, if you look at the most successful people in the world, they are not well rounded, they're taking the natural strength, which I simply activities that make you feel strong and they found ways to tunnels into contribution. So that's what everybody should do you? You you are affected when you figured out where you're spiking us is. And then you've applied your spiking in the roles in which you find yourself. And then once you're in those roles, you do what every successful person does you deliberately mold the role to fit you every week little by little you gradually help the role you tilt the role until most of the job becomes the stuff that you like the best for the most of your job becomes the best pop of your job. That's the most successful. Do they deliberately on Dennis with a strength on and then mold the job week by week by week in order to their strengths better? Why do you think we should give helpful attention instead of constant feedback because human beings definitely thrive in response to another human being there's no question about that. If you want to destroy someone you just ignore them. So yes, we do need the attention of another human being the question. Then is what does that person doing? What is the other person doing with their attention? At the moment, we seem to have a conventional wisdom that the other person should be giving his constant critical constructive from candid sometimes radically candid feedback, though, the other person is responsible for telling you truth about you that if they weren't telling it to you wouldn't know and the truth that they tell you Stickney the critical truth that they tell you a Vipul fee remediating and fixing yourself. So that you can excel, unfortunately, none of that's true. The moment somebody says and tells you what you're doing wrong or indeed what? The truth about you is presupposing that they have that true. They for example, the audit or what not GIC thinking is. And that you don't have it or what executive presence is. And you don't have it. Or this is what you should do in order to have it all of that presupposes. The other person is associate truth imbera devices relevant to you at all. In your excellent is built upon your future. Excellent

"Has some cool ideas on what it takes to be a leader today this week. I spent a couple of days at this conference in Los Angeles called Montgomery summit. It's put on by this guy. Jamie Montgomery who founded one of the original L, A investment, banks. Anyway, now, he's a VC and this conference is sold as a way for top startups. I'm talking about ones that have already raised at least as a series A to investors. But really what the conference amounts to is a networking opportunity for a few hundred investors ranging from late stage p guys too early stage investors, they hang out drink Margaritas eat hamburgers from the in and out truck see startup pitches in and that's basically it it's at the Fairmont overlooking the ocean, and Santa Monica and. It was a really good event. Jason I to be at we ate tacos with the co founder of lime connected with a bunch of VC's that we know or have been on the pod. And we met some really cool founders. But the main value comes from just being around the hoop in order to become interesting to investors, you have to be interesting to other investors when you're there mingling meeting. People investors start to think, hey, there's the pay club guys. Oh, yeah. I like their monthly updates. Hey, look, there's Ben from any a laughing with them. And then Hans walks up and Ben's. Hey, Hans good to see you do know Jason and Alex from pay club. Boom. That's how it works then from there. Everyone flies to Austin for south by in the mingling continues Jason's there now we pitched at a fintech breakfast on Saturday morning. So a let you know what happens with that soon. This is the day in the life for a startup founder, building and shipping a product. That's delight. F-full us hitting user growth numbers that pop off the page in our case stopping fraudsters trying to steal money from us flying all over the country going to conferences meeting founders and investors, and then bundling all that up into a neat little package that causes investors to say, wow. Okay. That's it for me interview time. All right. Dan, Shah bell from New York big time author. Leadership thinker really influential guy. Happy to have you on the podcast happy to be here. Thanks for having me. Yeah. So we're here today to talk about your new book, it's called back to human how great leaders create connection in the age of isolation. So just tell us what is the age of isolation. And how leaders can do that. Technology is connected us like never before. But at the same time our overuse and misuse of. It has led to loneliness isolation. Lower engagement in the workplace and a less organizational.

"Stronger ties me because especially now since we're in the age of the A, I and I know that, you know, I love the movie, you know, her and I have a great relationship with Alexa. You know, we're we're we're trying to make those connections. But it does fall short. Even when Alexa pays me compliment. It just doesn't feel right. It's not the same. And I think if you re if I were to really be honest, I would say if I didn't see in here. My for my business partners for a long period of time. If I if we didn't have for events year where we were interacting with our customers. There would be no business. It would be no business relationship. It would all combust because we ties do not yield strong B two B business relationships. Right. And so I think that technology can be good because it can serve as a reminder. Right. If I'm commenting on so Instagram profile. It's like, hey, remember, I exist, but if you only do that over time, you never create the bond that you could create if you use the technology as handshake in order to eventually meet in person or over phone call. So I think that technology can be good to remind someone to go to a meeting. But if you're in a meeting, and you're just looking at your devices, you're not. The present. And you waste your time. Even going in that meeting, and I think that's part of why meetings are dysfunctional is because people wasting time looking at devices instead of paying attention. You is interesting every two years, I go off the grid with my family. There's no devices, no internet, no social media. And I realized Dan how much extra time I actually had to connect with my family, and what was going on around me. Not having your phone is a new vacation. Exactly, I love that. The average workweek in the US is forty seven hours a week and then on nights and weekends and on vacations were still connected. And the reason is because technologist convenient we have guilt feeling for not responding and gets all right, especially as business owners and even more. So we can grow on Colleen, maybe we are in the sense always on call not to reestablish boundaries. And then I vacation we don't want to come back from vacation with a hundred emails, so psychological in order to prevent that. Where like oh. Well, if I check my Email every hour, we'll come back, and and it won't be as bad. And so I think these are all bad habits that we have. I think out of offices are still valuable. I think setting boundaries between you and your manager your team or it's just really important. I see more in poor people without pushing these boundaries because it's the the only way they can stay healthy. And when you're away from work you actually, come back more refreshed productive. And you might have a different lens. On how to solve a problem. So Dan is the place to start where you just recently said is that to use technologies a good reminder? But to remember that it's not a basis for real relationships. That's a huge a huge factor. I mean, a lot of people are interviewed for the book. They don't read technology be in their bedroom or when they're having. I mean, look at these technology founders Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, didn't let their kids have technology in a lot of the suburbs. Now, I'm we have a client in Atlanta, and they have wait till eighth grade. So wait till eighth where kids aren't allowed cellphones until eighth grade. It's because their brains aren't even ready to handle all those dopamine hits. Like, you're pointing out. So I think that we have to be smarter about how when we were using it. And and if you have an argument with a colleague attacks is only gonna make it worse. If you find yourself resp- going back and forth, sending a bunch of emails and the other person on the other end. You know, doesn't understand what you're trying to do what you're asking them that this confusion that is a signal that you should've picked up the phone or donor buddy O'Connor. Your walk foot to their office and studying there Harvard Business Review down that one face to face interaction is more successful than thirty four emails exchange back and forth statistic. You also talk about in the book that you should promote work friendships to keep people engaged. And I think the advice has been for so long that we shouldn't be friends with people we work with especially if you're the leader of the company. Mckay's for work friendships, and I did a study with virgin pulse. Over two thousand marriages employs ten countries and found that seven percent of the global workforce has zero Bruns at work in half a five or fewer, and the reason why make a case of work friendships now even more so than five ten years ago is that we're working so many hours, and I believe this the two most important things based research when it comes to work is the work you do and who you do it with. So when it comes to work, you do you want it to be purposeful? You want to be passionate about it that you want it to play to your strengths you sow at that work. But the people you work with or even more important because you could love what you do. But if you have a toxic manager and team you'll never be successful. At that. You'll hate it. The experience will be so terrible for you. So I think that if you're not if you don't if you're not in love with what you do. But you have a supportive team you'll RAF longer than if you love what you do. And you don't have a sport of. Team. So I think I think the human element is so important, especially because you're spending so much time with these people at thirty year life. Absolutely. We're talking with Dan Schwab, bell, ten of his new book is called back to human how great leaders create connection in the age of isolation. Danielson the book, that empathy with your colleagues is so important, and we don't necessarily hear that empathy is important at work too much. Yeah. It's really interesting. I mean, we both know Seth Godin. He's even said when I interviewed him for his new book, this is marketing that the quality when it comes to consumers them leadership across the board, is empathy and Ivanhoe chapter called lead with empathy chapter nine, and the reason why it's so important is because in many ways, you're less empathetic. If you're just using technology, you just are because it's hard to have that connection and understand what these people are going through if you're disconnected from them for minimal standpoint. And so I think today, especially with all be SWEB. He's coming out like Mariah Carey's thing. She's bipolar. Anthony board games death to Ryan Reynolds coming up as separate things -iety. You people wanna bring their people are becoming more comfortable with who they are and their mental illnesses and issues, and you know, maybe down the family and people want to bring their off into the workplace and. And meaning that they're full south could be their cages got you've got a school or their mom just died in. So we have to respect that empathize with them and support them and their needs not moment because this could happen to you. This could happen to anyone and we have to take note of that. And and really ties with those people things, Dan, I can't stand when people say, well, it's just business. Not personal. I've really see those things together. And especially because you're an entrepreneur, right? Even more blurred. Right. So it's it's blurred already. But then you're not sure preneurs and like, I never know. And you probably relate to this. I'd never know when the holidays are like I'm just kind of doing my thing. Right. But I think that yes, I think you do need Some Marines. You need to set them you need to have these intimate conversations with your team to see what's going to work for everyone. But yeah, boundaries important because work in life or blurred and work. It's creeping into people's personal lives and found in a recent study with Cronos that of a few thousand employees globally that over seventy percent of workers. Don't have enough time for personal related activities work interferes with their personal life, and to me that's not healthy in and it's going to actually cost the company more in the long term. So last question what ask you is? Because it seems like this whole situation, Dan is really exacerbated by there's so many remote workers these days. How do you? How leaders form those connections to breakdown than isolated late if they're remote and people are working all over the world ended up being the most interesting part of the research in the book and the most relevant right because the workplaces very decentralized. That's the big that's one of the biggest changes in terms of work cultures in the past one decade or two decades. A third of the global workforce works remote yet two-thirds just engaged in their job. And if you work remote, you're much less likely to say, you wanna long-term create your company, so working remote impacts team and organizational commitment, and and to me this assassinating because everyone always talked about the promise of and the light side of Oromo at work, which is you got the freemen flexibility to work when wearing how you want, and that's great. I'm working remote right now. But no one talks about the dockside. The dark side is the isolation and loneliness you get from not having human contact that you need not just to be productive in. Functional, but I revival. And so if you are just always working from home, and you don't get the human contact, you know, video conferencing, you don't have social events you're disconnected, and that doesn't just hurt your work, but it hurts your entire life because work is a huge part of life. And so what would your recommendation be for small business owners and entrepreneurs that want or make sense for them that the skill? They want for their company is remote. Yeah. I mean, there's so many small business owners that ever more workers because it's more cost effective. And it expands your talent pool. Those are the two two of the big reasons and lowers costs, right? Those three top. And so knowing that and knowing that that's good for your business. That's great. But because of that, you need to have certain things in place, for instance, in the research, you found that you know, video conferencing is is good because not only do you get to hear them, but you get to see them. So it's of course, as we can you can get in today's world of being there without being there. And then from there we've found that. I like doing one social event a your team. They'll be some thing that it might be outside of the office or or in a different country is gonna create a more socialized work environment. People when you're not in a stodgy boring office, let's say, and you are out and you're doing on terrorism you're getting to know people on a personal level that establishes charge relationships in a in a more of an incentive to stay with the company longer. Well, Dan, I appreciate you being again on the show the Tel the book is called back to human how great leaders create connection, the age of isolation where can people get in touch with you?
