During covid. Nineteen Marie launched the training series online to reach women where they are and changed their lives with a step-by-step Transformational coaching, program. Yes Marie Welcome. Welcome. Thank you. Thank you for having me. Well, I have been wanting to sit down and grill you forever because you are an executive coach to a good friend of mine who works for a very large. Company and you have totally impacted how she feels work I love hearing that it just makes my day to hear that and she is a rockstar she really is and I love just I grill her I'm like, what did she say this week so first of all, tell us what is an executive coach because I just love this idea? Yeah. Well, it's many things I mean really it is bringing somebody to their highest potential because oftentimes what our skill set is that makes us really good at what we do for a living as we move up or get into different environments. We weren't necessarily trained to be awesome managers are awesome communicators and all of these things. So it's really just building a new tool set as you grow and company and in most places it specifically. In the company that we're referring to, it's about building executives up because they see great potential in them. It's not necessarily as a lot of people think the some cases there are fixes that need to be made like somebody will hire you to say this is a real barrier for their growth but in a lot of cases, it's just having them realize their potential. and. Everybody can't be good at everything and a lot of times they're their original career as they made their selves up the ladder got themselves up the ladder you need different skills to navigate as you take on more was very true for us because we're writers and then it's like as you become show runner, it's entirely different skill set and learn on the job. So I wish we'd had your health way back. And everyone goes through that growth pain and having a toolbox at each stage in your career become so much more important especially at this stage in our careers of owning yourself, you know and not doubting yourself as you did when you were working your way up and got all that feedback, they confused you. Now it's time to really own yourself and with that comes freedom. Yes and I think for. Particularly Women in positions of power we're often perceived differently than men are in the same position. Do you have like top three pieces of advice for women who who are? Who wanted just improve how they're perceived at work? Yeah I mean that's an awesome awesome question because you know women and power is a tricky thing. We're perceived very differently. We're judged very differently and we've again as we've been told so many different things as we've moved up in our career in feedback and often times were trying to. Emulate that or or be something that we're not as we're exerting power because power is not a comfortable place often for women. Because we know we've been judged several times sir career and get to that place of executive or or at that. Place in our career where we all are you know it really is and what we what I really teach. Women is stripping all that out and just coming through as yourself because there's a huge difference. I. Think there's this horrible perception of brand. What's your brand and this is how you dress. It's how all this stuff versus your presence and we've all seen somebody walking room man or woman, and they own the room. Yeah and you don't even know what their titles but you know they're important. How did he do that and? That's presence in. So often men men can own that so much easier than women because they know their strengths, they own their strengths and they don't apologize for their weaknesses. They're

And then other parts of the economy where people are. Experiencing layoffs right now maybe even for the first time in a year that over sixty million people have been laid off at one time or another since. March. So. We are going to have. A, very, very confusing. Outlook on the economy. Because some sectors are now getting worse is an example. There was a lot of. Publicity surrounding not the kind they want. About. Walt Disney Company laying off twenty eight thousand more people. And they are just the tip of the iceberg in what's happening in the hospitality industry a new report that ran in the financial press. Just two days ago is that seventy percent? Of hotels in the United, states would likely to go bust either close till a new buyer emerges or file for bankruptcy because the travel industry is just dead debt and then tomorrow is when the airline layoffs start rolling out if you're not aware. we the. American, people. through our representatives in the Congress gave earlier this year twenty, five, billion dollars to collectively the group of Nations Airlines. And return the airlines had to commit to not lay anybody off till October first. So. Here we are at the point of the layoffs. To Airlines have been able to work out accommodations with their employees that there will not be layoffs for now, and that's Delta and southwest. And the others are laying off a head count and what looks like it's the many tens of thousands collectively among the airline industry, the Casino Industry. Devastated beyond measure. because. You think about the things that put you at the greatest risk. Of Getting Corona virus it's being an enclosed space for a significant period of time around this substantial number of people. So Casino Casino Casino Right. All those conditions and so. People I know who are really end gambling. And had been going to casinos one of my friends who loves it told me recently that he and his wife went to a casino. And they were found it to pressing because it was like, no one there it just didn't have. Any of the life to it. And so casino workers. Are being laid off and massive numbers. So you know about the consequences for the restaurant industry what we've got. is any sector that fits those things I described with the casinos. Where you're into indoors you around potentially a lot of other people for a substantial amount of minutes. Those are key gateways to get in corona virus and there are people who are like, Hey, what me worry, but there's enough because all these activities that people are choosing not to do. Or voluntary activities not for the workers but for the customers. And people are saying you know that's really something I'm not going to do and I talked about the movie theater issue same thing as well. And so we. FACE THE PROSPECT OF WAITING Until. There are effective treatments that people have confidence in. Or? There are enough people get vaccinated by vaccine that people trust that takes us pretty far in the future. Third Alternative that has worked very well in a number of other countries. Is that we go to a strict regimen. very well organized testing program. Where you find out who has corona virus early. Where you test in huge numbers and repeatedly, and then you prevent the community spread countries that have done. So their economies are actually as large or larger. Than they were a year ago, and so that's something we could certainly be looking at as a country that we have not been. So. Know that there are people are going to need your help. There are people around you in your community who if you're doing fine, there are people who are going to need assistance from charities they're going to need food to eat. There are a number of things that are really at flashpoints for a lot of people who work in certain professions and A, few cities are facing extreme hardship and the two facing the worst hardship in the United States Orlando and Las Vegas where the economies are totally dependent. On tourism. That's just not there.

ESPN plus I mean this is the craziness of meteorite. Now in that the the The Walt, Disney Company was more exposed than anybody else to this pandemic because the parks were shut down for most of the second quarter these parks were not operating not generating revenue and they're movie business was essentially shut down because for most of the quarter they were not allowed to release.

Mean they doing that because if they put it on regular premium video on demand, they would have to share a lot of that price with the platforms that help them That sale up here there's some rumors that they may be sharing a little bit of the price with the theaters that were promised movie that hasn't been confirmed but if they're willing to put it behind essentially a paywall and a paywall, we're really going to see what the demand is for this kind of high-quality a-list Disney content in a streaming

"At a new record today for the s&p five hundred up about one tenth of one percentage point. And we are looking at a new record high. And also, the NASDAQ joining us now, April simplistic socks editor here in our Bloomberg interactive brokers studios. It doesn't feel as rar is making it sound. It's sort of feeling like, I guess we'll kick it a little higher. Well, it does. Because Mondays tend not to be the busiest days when it comes to earnings. So there isn't a whole lot in terms of new results to kind of push stocks higher here. Google right? I mean, they're coming after the close of trading. So it's not like, you know, the really lifting things right now. What's interesting, though is to see the financial stocks do relatively well here. They're leading the way among the eleven main industry groups in the S and P five. Eight hundred naturally the biggest game belongs to Bank of America. When was the last time you say that? Yeah. Up two point four percent the moment. So, you know, people must be seeing something in the latest numbers or whatever to suggest that things are looking up for the banks. And it's kinda hard to figure that out when you've seen bond yields down. Immediately looked at the two ten-year-old Kern, and it's actually the steepest it's been all year right now. There you go. I mean, very well could be the answer right there. Right. I mean, the idea that, you know, maybe banks do end up in a position where that gap between what they're paying their depositors earning on their loans and investments the net interest margin actually goes into favor. And that's really been the question, you know, with the first quarter results we shot we saw in the last couple of weeks. Not so great on that score. So the idea that maybe things turned for the better for banks. Yeah. You can understand why why you get some gains here. Here's just the latest example of how I don't understand this whole stock market game, Walt Disney company sells one point two five thirty years. So that's quite the emission one point two billion dollars worth of tickets. And the stock is down zero point six percent today. I guess it's maybe sell the news. That's an easy conclusion to draw and you can draw on as well as I can. I mean, having been a media analyst Paul, and this is the area us focused on so crazy. No, it's not like people didn't anticipate. This was going to be a blockbuster opening. It's just the numbers are staggering. And then even if you look at the movie theater chains which they were higher early on giving back some of their gains. And we're talking much smaller companies. They're clearly Disney. No question. The new aim see entertainment, basically little change. Now. Even though Saturday was their biggest day ever for ten minutes and food and beverage sales. Well, here's what I'm wondering. Whether this can be Representative of the broader trend that we've seen across major US equity indices that beats whether it's news, or whether it's earnings beats haven't been rewarded as much as they have been in the past and disappointments have been more severely punished is that is that sort of what you're seeing in general. While you're certainly make that case. I mean, I'm looking at some research out today from Bloomberg intelligence, and it certainly fits in with the idea that you know, when companies come up short of earnings and the S and P five hundred average declined so far three and a half percent. And when they miss in terms of both earnings and sales down three percent on one side of the coin. The other side is here this earnings recession that we've talked about so much in the last few weeks is looking more and more distant we've gone from about a four percents Robin s and p five hundred profit for the first quarter when reporting season began now you're looking at one point seven percent and all they have to companies have reported so far by the time. We get the other half you may have actual growth. Not a lot of growth, certainly not the twenty five percent that you saw in the first three quarters of last year, but growth, none the less. So it's a bit of a different picture here might also be the fact that we've had. Just such a great start to the year for US equities for the SNP up over fifteen percent. Nasdaq up close at twenty I mean, your pricing in you know, very very good results. Presumably so when they do come through. Maybe it's a moment. But if they come in short, then you're gonna pay of course, you have to contrast the way stocks rebounded from their fourth quarter declines with what was happening with analysts earnings estimates short answer is they were falling in terms of the first quarter more than they typically, do you know as a period progresses. So you know, you had rebound and stocks you had an essence the bar being lowered enough that more companies could surpass it. And they could do so by higher margins and essence, you know, you're talking about something close to eighty percent of companies in the SNP five hundred so far beating analysts average earnings estimate in a Bloomberg survey. So you're not kind of tells you what's been going on here. And why the react? Action has been more severe when companies can't manage to do what so many others have meanwhile, in the economic backdrop it at core PC today Beshir of inflation, the fed watches particularly closely, and it showed really kind of confirmation of what the fed has been saying that inflation is picking up at a very slow piece in a decelerating pace. The interesting thing that I thought in this report was that expenditures Americans are spending more, and they're increasing their spending any significantly faster pace than they're increasing their paychecks. And to me, I have to wonder, you know, that's good for consumer for consumer dispensing disposable companies. But what does that say about the state of the consumer how long did that last certainly a valid question. And I will give you one piece of anecdotal evidence purely personal anecdote plays last weekend. I ran a yard sale, and I'll tell you made more than ever before. And you know, the way these things go tends to be if you have all day. That you have lows during the day at basically had no until the last hour. What were you selling? I was selling some of my music. I was selling of household items that sort of thing, and they purely one little piece of a much bigger puzzle. But it was interesting to see that things that have been hanging around for years actually sold and we did okay financially. Honestly, maybe it was just you. Maybe they were like I want a piece of Dave Wilson house. There's only one guy who did that was right place. Right time tables and consumer index. Dave.

Like, they did with the acquisition of Lucasfilm in saying the way the company is structured enables them to leverage their brands for digital at minimal additional costs. We have in the Walt Disney company not only collection of brands, and we're heading to them with National Geographic and Bax and searchlight at center and so on, but we have talent both executive talent talent relationships and production capabilities that gives us the ability to scale up nicely in terms of our output, and and not invest that much in overhead or infrastructure to do that. I was saying he believes there's huge potential for hula to grow most. Remember that Disney will control sixty percent of who wants that Foxtail closes back to you. All right. Julia. Thank you, Julie abortion in Los Angeles. Pete you own Disney. So what do you make of the quarter? What do you make of the emphasis on business? I think that's something. We've been talking about for a while. So that's the shift they've had to make. And I think we've all maybe I think we all have agreed upon the fact that they've been slow to do this. They finally earned the process of doing it. That's great. I think it's something that they're behind the eight ball right now, they still gotta make up a lot of room. They are they're still way behind at this point. Yeah, they're late to the game. I mean, Netflix suspending what eight billion a year developing original content. I mean that would be a significant stride for Disney to make if they really wanted to compete head to head with net flicks. Yes. Who would help them to get their partially? But I do think they have their challenges in the streaming market. They're actually spending a lot more than eight billion dollars. But the billion billion original content. It makes up less than ten percent of their entire catalog. What is Disney have they have a catalog? They're pulling their best stuff from Netflix. I think to say that Bob ideas lead to the game. Given what they're doing. The fact that the stock is down more on that guidance that they've just gave about this product of fact that cable subscriptions only to Klein one percent. I think investors are going to give them a little time to figure this out as they haven't they already. What does the starter? Okay. So that's the problem. I don't disagree with you own the stock. But my point is they are so together fifteen to twenty two traded as low as ninety. So here we are. Hundred thirteen dollars. I'd say trades market. Multiple is here I own it. Because of a couple of reasons I still think even though he's slow to it. I still good a CEO is there is out there. He's made great acquisitions over time that to your point. That's where their book is in terms of what they own all these brands everything else. But I just think that the streaming is something that they just kicked to the side for far too long that decided they haven't lost any position lost and be a little bit to make up a lot of that room. Even if they are pulling away, which they are from Netflix. Disney n media, let's bring in town Rogers longtime media executive MC NBC contributor, Tom. It is always great to have you with us.

"Archive change your, life, technology segments, as well In Anaheim California there's a coalition. Of unions. And they have gathered over twenty thousand signatures which is more than. Enough for the November ballot to require large employers who, receive government subsidies to maintain a fifteen dollar minimum. Wage all right this would also be for the demand for the Walt Disney company so you might be surprised to know that Walt? Disney they receive federal tax breaks that. Function as subsidies did you, know that as incentives to boost. Economic growth according to two thousand seventeen report from the institute on taxation, and economic policy it was the Walt Disney company, alone, they saved almost one point five billion dollars. Over eight years so we all remember Bernie Sanders when he, was on the. Campaign trail he was also on the campaign trail in Anaheim California He joined forces with union representatives. And he demanded, a minimum wage of fifteen dollars? Per hour as opposed to the eleven dollars and twenty five cents. Per hour and he said quote, I, want to hear the moral defense of a company that makes nine billion dollars in profits and gives minimum wage of eleven dollars and twenty five cents per hour and he was pointing the finger right at. The Walt. Disney company there in Anaheim so Martina starting with you does the. Company that claims that it's in the business of making, dreams come true actually do that with its own. Employees I find this to be very interesting because whereas the personal responsibility nothing says that a person needs to work there and I? Don't think the problem is truly with. Disney perhaps it's more of, where the person lives in other. Words is it the state of California that's the issue because they take, out so much money in taxes I wonder if, the The same thing occurs at DisneyWorld in Florida where they have a much friendlier tax structure so. Is it the amount of money that's paid or is it the amount of money. That's being taken out of, the person's paycheck is what's driving some of the issues here and again nobody says you have to work there that's correct. And these are things that you know the average American doesn't hear, from a politician Bernie Sanders is not going to, go into that little paragraph that you just gave all. Of us because he's gonna just be there. With a megaphone, pointing the finger and saying if? You can't make minimum wage of fifteen dollars an hour something is. Wrong with Disney Mitch Well Terry frankly I'm speechless, I mean Bernie sandals wants, socialism I'm. Just completely shocked the thing about burning, he's got an advantage a lot of. People don't, have numbers do not have to crunch for Bernie I mean this is the. Guy that, wants to spend thirty two trillion for free. Healthcare I mean there's not that much money in. All Christendom, you know reality doesn't settle, in for this guy I mean this is the same guy but. Also, gave a Bob Iger props for. Cancelling the Roseanne show well that costs three hundred jobs buddy I mean you either four, jobs or you're not which you can't. Have, it both ways but I do find it fascinating me yes. I'm aware that Hollywood gets all kinds of subsidies to me this, is ironic this Bob Eiger is part of the Hollywood left and he's. Getting some of his own medicine hair back to Bernie's point he was. Talking about, how folks can work at Disney for thirty years forty years even fifty years depending on how old you are and. Go hungry because you're still making eleven twenty. Five per hour that's just not true and. Fifty, years, ago, you didn't. Make eleven, twenty five an hour The reverse. On this but that's what Bernie Sanders says Disney said this about, Sanders clearly doesn't have his facts right Disneyland generates more than five point. Seven billion dollars annually for the local economy and it's the area's largest. Employee having, added more than eleven thousand jobs over the last decade which is a sixty five percent increase so she Disney they're. Also talking in generalities they took it back. A decade not forty years or fifty years They pointed also to the new one billion, dollar Star Wars themed land that will create thousands of new jobs across, multiple sectors dizzy is going to have. To look at Disney isn't gonna change I don't care, what Bernie Sanders says they're still going. To have entry level, jobs they're still going to have people that want to work there, and be part of that culture in Anaheim. For were even Florida for a very long time Bernie, Sanders can use this derail and Nashes teeth. But it's not going to change. If the employee doesn't wanna work there the employee quits, and? Goes somewhere else so to Disney's. Point about pointless finger back at Bernie I think they do have a point they have generated jobs and chances are in California that minimum wage will now go up but not. By much Martina, I would agree and I. Think this is also exhibits the, other issue which is the amount Of unskilled labor that, comes into the state of California these. Are supposed to be starter jobs not living wage jobs, and I think that's another important distinction. To make good points all we're going to wrap on there and hear what Megan has, to say right after this on this very. Subject Megan the millennial will be with a show also, change your life technology They.
