"With an organization this big, and when you're dealing with high school, kids everybody's very passionate about it, and so she's taking some heat, but I think that she has actually navigated the waters pretty well she keeps saying that as is in line with the with everybody else. The main priority is education for these kids, but it's also. She went on to say that. We need the Colorado economy to be back. Back so she did. She did mention both of those things. That's a great point by you that Hey, the main priority is that we have to have kids back in class and in school now question is Gail. Is that what happens if you know say school down in Denver has an outbreak and they have to shutdown all online again. What does that look like for the rest of the conference? So they have a ton of what if scenarios that they're playing through the one good thing that high school football high school athletics have going for them is that there's not a ton of travel right when you talk about college and the pro's. They're having a go across. The Nation in high school were staying in Colorado. We have experienced pretty low numbers. Compared to some of the other state. Excuse me compared to some of the other states around the country, so that's going for them as well and you gotTA. You've got a CHASA commissioner and a chess, a commission board that is really pushing to get this done in whatever format that they can can do. one of the things that I was looking for for her to answer was. What's the plan that? That you submitted and she did that was one of the questions that she got. And she replied quickly back and said We'll release the finalized plan, but we'RE NOT GONNA have released any of the evolving plans as to be, and that makes all the sense in the world. Because you know, I've been talking about Dr Anthony Algae you know our epidemiologist in chief. He now is dealing in speculation, and unfortunately it all goes to credibility so I think it's very wise that you know. She keeps those plans under wraps because the sad reality of this entire scenario as you mentioned earlier tanner. Is that well yet? CHASA can make plans as we can. All make plans, but were not charged here. That nasty little critter known as Cova. is in charge right and that's exactly right, and the thing is that she can't get people's hopes up. Because I would be way worse for to come out and say, here's our plan. It's in for. Submission then somebody's going to be a bad guy right. Well. Somebody's GonNa say that make sense, but you know we got A. WE HAVE A lot of smaller schools here in northern. Colorado Ryan. We've got the Eaton's. The the plant valleys the the highland up and. we've got all these smaller schools that it's easier to operate with, but when you talk about chance that they're dealing with the entire state, so they've got schools ranging from all over the place, you know from schools with a senior class of twelve to schools with senior classes of thousands upon thousands, so they've got to try and find a middle, plan. But to your point about speculation, gail, that's kind of in the tough thing with all of this is that there was not a lot known. The early on in this is. that. We didn't know how to examine these numbers and I. think that where a lot of people are trying to find. Some hope is that when we first started this pandemic wh, we were discussing the we were discussing the not overwhelming the hospitals. And that was the big thing, and unfortunately that narrative kind of somewhat sneakily I will say has changed from not overwhelming the hospital to hammer. Record number of cases even if they are asymptomatic and we need to remember, that's not exactly the same thing. That's actually nowhere close to the same thing. To, the climber, my friend, right and I don't mean to get up I mean. If you want to hear me on my soapbox, you knock on. but but speaking with mayor. Gates I know you've talked to them to. We've got six six hospitalizations right now in Greeley and they're keeping an eye on that particular with that You Know Open Air Food Court. He's keeping as are other city officials, keeping a very close eye on that, but that we are talking about two parallel tracks. Number of cases is one thing. Thing yes, that's a number, but as you mentioned tanner, what we really need to look out for is number of hospitalizations. Yeah, and I think we're lucky here. In Northern Colorado that we've got a lot of elected officials that understand that, and that's what they're basing their decisions on Now like we said, we've still got restrict. We've got pretty restrictive guidelines still in place. Four July. Who knows what August August Mike Bradley? Who knows what What new information about this virus we will have because we're still I. mean this is still pretty new virus I know that there are different vaccines that are getting funded out the Wazoo with the money and and everything that goes into that, so who knows isn't there in gale, isn't there some called operation warp speed going on right now? For a couple of them, so, but the problem is i. mean you can only. Fast track a fact zine a so far and if I'm not mistaken, the last vaccine took five years for it to work its way through the system. Now that said we might see more progress made, but once again I just think covert nineteen is a reality. It's going to be with us for a long time. We won't even talk about the first versus the second way for right and I I D- I don't disagree with you at all and with that being said. It's let's say five years. We can't continue life in this way for. Business as president, trump has had the entire time that hey, the cure can't be worse than the cancer over the Cova nineteen right, and so that's where I think that tying all back together I think that's where Chaz is really really pushing to say we don't know how long this is going to go on. We have to get a plan into place. That could be effective for now could be effective for next year. whoever who knows, but they might get a plan that we can't keep disrupting these kids, lives and their livelihoods. For much longer so I. Respect what Rhonda's Do and Look I've got an interview request in for her, so maybe we'll get caught back up again once I. Talk With Rhonda and push her a little and talk exactly what this plan looks like, but I appreciate you having me on gale, and now and absolutely always my pleasure tanner as you know here on. Itching to rich and to get this role, and we've actually got a highschool awards. award show happening next Thursday from five to eight PM. This was going to be our first ever awards banquet that was scheduled for May and of course with everything else that got canceled. We were a part of that so we're going to be honoring northern Colorado's finest athletes Thursday the sixteenth from five to eight PM. So I want to throw that out there as well see it's all about being flexible and creative and innovative, and that's exactly. What you are doing just so appreciate that tinge swint host of Noko now sales manager, thirteen ten KFI A preps director, thirteen ten KFI and nice call. I might add on the shoebox parade.

"Gail continues now and thirteen ten KFI. Yesterday to reconnect and sit down with a preps director Tanner swint, and what a fortuitous conversation! Indeed it was because we were talking about the future preps. Well unfortunately at that point in time, and it could still well be the case future of high school sports, still kind of kind of up in the air, but little. Did we know that Colorado High? School Activities Association Chasa Commissioner Rhonda blamed for Green would take to twitter yesterday to answer a couple of questions while it turned into the equivalent of a digital free for all Q and eight swint in this morning tanner morning gale, and yeah, you're exactly right. It did really turn into the and I was joking with A. High School writer actually said. Yeah I'll take questions. Okay, every answer is I'll let you know later on, so it was. It was a little bit a little bit of that, but yeah, we did get some information at least Rhonda. In terms of win high school athletics are going to get started again all right, so do tell us spill the beans here because everybody wants to know I'm sure the kids, the coaches, the parents everybody. We're just Jones for sports. Oh, there's no doubt about it. In high school politics especially here in northern Colorado are so popular and so needed That's that's what a lot of small towns they strive on it and I know you. You know that Galas is these high school athletic regardless of of Sport, but the Big One we talk about this is football as it is obviously the most, you know most at risk when it comes to contact sports, and that's where a lot of people like you know. If you remember the chance task force released well football's high risk in basketball and wrestling, obviously our high risk sports. They broke it down from low to moderate high. that. Had everybody just terrified that we thought that was the cancellation of everything wasn't going to happen. Then run blind for green came back out and said Hey, relax. We are putting together a plan for things to start in the fall. She got a couple of interesting questions out. Obviously, the big one yesterday was. Hey wins the timeline I've been here in mid-july. What is that and she said? That's the estimated time line but they're waiting on the state health department They're waiting on the education officials agenda resuming education is the priority, and we will support and complement the direction of our member schools when they have definitive Rhonda talked about that one of the other questions that came up a lot is hey, what about switching since baseball is? is just a moderate risk and so as track what? What about switching the fall and spring sports to wait, that was the one where I think that. If you read between the lines, a little bit that that that Rhonda kind of put that out, it's not going to be a possibility. Somebody asked. Hey, there's a couple of other states that have done this. She said no, not there's actually been to knock it down but everything's still on the table, but if you read between the lines, I don't think that's going to be an option. As of right now. They've submitted a plan to the state the state offices. For approval so if that gets approved, we're all systems go, but that was another question that people had was what happens as soon as one kid test positive and she went back to just wait exactly what they're doing now. Because Gale, there are teams that are practicing. They are not social distancing it practices AS Roma's mentioned. They are full boards at some of the stuff So what happens when one of them gets tested? She says state and local health guidelines for reporting contact tracing a quarantine. We'll be strictly adhere to. Once we resume, which is exactly the same protocol that they're following now so. Still some stuff up in the air, but it's always good in this time especially for over sharing and I think that's what Rhonda was trying to trying to do yesterday and trying to calm some nerves. Now you and gale know that this could all change with the drop of A. Hat could just mean time. It could be absolutely This conversation could be useless by noon today, but I don't expect that. I expected. This plan will get approved. They've been working diligently with the state health officials and really. We go back to the financial burden gala. No, this is something that you've covered a ton on on your program in the economy and everything that goes into that, but sometimes people don't think about highschool on folks as a money driver, it absolutely is, and they're bound. They're trying to bounce back from missing the spring season and the end of the winter. Season So? They are pushing to even get fans in the stands, Gail, because they wanting that revenue and they're wanting to do it in a safe way. Obviously, that's their first goal is to get high school athletics and activities back on track, but they do need to make up for that financial burden that they lost in this spring and the end of the winter season, so I expect. Expect at a push everything, they can to have athletics. We will have some form of high school in Athletics I. Don't think that's doubt whether that's just golf or whether. That's golf softball and and a couple of other exports I don't know, but we will have high school athletics, the big one up in the area now football still yeah, exactly well, and you know it is that. Ever present challenge that balancing act between the financial aspects and the hits that so many institutions schools businesses, small businesses across the board had take from have taken from a financial perspective but balancing. The very real dollars and sense with a public safety, and it's my understanding that she also said what is really key. Here is getting the kids back to school in the fall. Yes, she absolutely said that she said that you know, and and this is where I think. Rhonda has she's taken some heat as every elected official has during this time and and I'm not by no means. She's elected official but with..

"In our reservoirs, because we don't allow per state statute. Our reservoirs and Outside of a Swim Beach the vessels, a three chambered vessel, meant to transport people in in gear, and we don't allow these these know four dollar. Blow up inner tubes from Walmart because. They're not as sound might hope they would be. And you know if you get out too far, and then the tube leaks, and you're not a very good swimmer. the yourself in jeopardy, so and just the sheer number of people we cannot. Allow that because we can't keep track everybody so biggest. Drowning here some kind of major incident just due to overcrowding the water. Thankfully, know a lot of our water water capacity. We can control by our parking capacities. They go hand in hand. Though we only so many votes on the reservoir overseen a really large uptick as you know and stand up paddle boards and Kayaks. That's really the the biggest increase we've seen you on the. It's obviously it's causing user conflicts with the boat ramps out on the water. You and the wind comes up because we're in the foothills here. Colorado gets windy and we get win burst. You know the folks rather reservoir and its high wind gusts come up, and there's no way of fighting on an inflatable paddle boards. They get blown ashore like a flock of geese and. Retrieve a bunch though there's a lot of safety hazards out there that new powder borders just don't don't understand. Is there any talk of perhaps a creating paddle borders zones closer to shore? Because you know you've got those surf boats. The bowel is up in the air. It's tough to see and scanning scanning scanning all the time, but. Sometimes. Particularly Saturdays and Sundays, those paddle boarders out in the middle of the rest seems to me that that's a that's a pretty I don't put themselves at risk, it seems. They are that's one of our biggest challenges. multi-use resort horse tooth, one of the upsides to force reservoir has a lot of coves. Get into so if you're still stand up paddle boarding places, you launch your paddle board. You could be a cove and stay in a cove, so we're trying to do a better job. Educating our visitors on on how to properly paddleboard with the safe and safes. Areas are one thing that we are working on by implement next year. If you've been down to Florida, they have kayaking trails right coaster cynical. Cynical starting implementing some of those ideas and we have a better more defined trail for them and give them some safe areas. Unfortunately, you know you talk to folks that boat ramp staff the main by the water, especially when it's coming up and and people don't always make good choices, and so we're always going to battle that but we're doing the best. We can to do that, but ultimately you. You know visitors have a say in what they do and kind of create their own jeopardy. At times we're trying to eliminate that, but will never be one hundred percent right right mark. coughlan is horse to a district manager Mark I. Know You've got a lot on your plate a lot to get to today, but need to ask you now. We hear tell that they're lowering the lake eighty feet to work. Work on something at the bottom is that. Is that true? Yeah, you gotTa Love how things out and how accurate things portray you dropped forty feet, which is half of what what's out there and so and the reason we're doing that is the water's going to drop now and there's there's two reasons for that one of their building a secondary outlet structure at one of the Dan City for Collins. Takes Water Out to treat for the city for Collins and there's only a single pipe that goes through there, so they want to put a a redundant system they're. They're getting ready to build chimney hall reservoir, and there's some things upstream by and reservoir to reduce some piping in Hartson infrastructure for that to happen so thankfully the reclamation in northern water. They're doing this project on the same year. And so that's GonNa Occur. Occur in July which stop water coming in, and so we started dropping now in our boat ramps will stay over boat ramps water through through mid September then we'll probably one or two boat ramps from mid September through October and the water starts coming back up again in November, so it's going to go down, but will always have a boat ramp in the water. What about the Marina? Because my understanding is? The Marina has to close at fifty, three eighty five. Is that correct? Yeah they're about fifty three eighty, two's really when they when they kind of start going on land so That's the way up to folks. Glenn Worth and his staff to to figure out when a good time. To start pulling boats out. I think everybody who has who has slipped they're. Kinda understand that is coming That'll be later on this summer. It's not going to happen. You know the next month by any means, and really you know we're in close contact with northern water for the the water, and where we're at projections, wise as far as how fast can drop and win, you know and those folks have have have an elevator where they need to start. Moving vessels out there, so we've been in close contact with them so hopefully be a smooth transition you go. That's so good to hear Kudos to all of the Rangers. Because you spoke of the fact that a lot of it is education based and I am just amazed at their composure, and they're calm when you're dealing with a combination of votes, alcohol, testosterone, and sometimes flat out stupid. They do an amazing job. Great thank you know..

"Restrictions eight. Oh eight now thirteen ten KFI, a thirteen ten, Kfi a dot com northern Colorado's voice mornings with Gail live and. And local the the auto collision specialist studios, but with that a boom in visitation rights Kevin Dugan and the Fort. Collins Colorado and come some safety concerns because Mark Coughlan. Horse Tooth district manager I I gotTa tell you Mark I have never ever? I've been going to horse two threads for eighteen years I have never seen at this busy with multitude of kayakers paddle boarders and guilty as charts surfers. Good Morning. Gail you're absolutely right. Yeah I've been with accounting twenty six years in our average. This visitation around horse teeth, reservoirs tooth mountain is about one point two million visitors a year there where she threads for a third busiest reservoir in the state of Colorado. You Know Chatfield is number. Two employee blows number one as far as visitation on on reservoirs. This year even though we're busy, we've been in the past our visitation. This year is about forty percent of kind of across the Board for day use and a and boating and such, so yeah you. What's your feeling is absolutely right we are. We are busy on a normal year, but let alone during a the pandemic as it were we're. We're seeing our visitation even higher about forty percent higher. What do you attribute that to and other lakes and reservoirs that are open experiencing that same increase? I think there's a couple of contributing factors. One is certainly aglow, flung at front range. I think at about happy over visitation is from out of county in a in a fair amount of. Get people are from well county out your way. They like the recreate. I think there's a very. There's a shortage of water in Colorado. It's a fairly dry state. There's very few natural lakes over most were bodies. Waters are reservoirs. You know we have the populations, and then you have people that are or furloughed or out of work or not in school, and people just want to get outside and and I. Don't blame on the same way you. You know my wife and I do the same thing. I'M GONNA chance. We go outside and recreates I. Think People are taking advantage of that, so it's a combination of things that are going on right now and I think we're gonNA feel that for a while. This is probably really for us a snapshot in the future you know four or five years out. I can't help a believe. This is going to be a normal occurrence for us. And I think to. There's you know so many other attractions for example water world isn't open and I can't help but think that that. Leads to the overcrowding. We are seeing because I gotta tell you mark. It gets a little bit frightening on the weekends. Because unfortunately you've got voters that really don't understand You know the rules of the road so to speak the rules of the lake and you've got. Said kayakers and handlebars Porter's safety is obviously a concern. It isn't. That I point is that you know a lot of US sports play. There's no sporting events. There's no place to go social gathering. Some people are taking advantage of the recreation areas. In you're right? There's a fair amount of new voters. A lot of new boat sales this year as well as RV sales in the RV sales are up about six hundred percent RV reynolds up about four hundred percent in the same goes for boating. You know there's a lot of dealers i. know that are having a hard time keeping boats in stock, so we're seeing a lot of new voters across the state. You know we're we're. A big part of our job more parties, visitors safety You know the state of Colorado for example. They've had sixteen drownings already this year. And the state of Colorado, the record was last year two thousand, he was in two thousand and nineteen at eighteen drownings I'm pretty sure it will pass out this year, so everybody in our field on is doing any kind of water based recreation their number. One priority right now is water safety. We have four but rangers to. We try to run patrol early morning to late.

The Salesman

"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard and I'm an alcoholic sober since nineteen eighty eight one day at a time in this episode the Fifteenth Story from the Personal Stories Section of the first edition of alcoholics anonymous published in nineteen thirty nine. It's entitled the salesman and was printed only in the first edition of the big book. It's one of those stories that listeners may be hearing for the first time that prominently featured Dr Bob and other early members of a personally helping another alcoholic achieved sobriety and now the salesman I learned to drink in a workmanlike manner when the law of the land said I couldn't and what started out as a young man spun became a habit which in its later existence laid me by the heels many a time and almost finished my career teen years. Were uneventful with me. I was raised on a farm but saw little future in farming. I was going to be a businessman took a business. College course acquired a truck and a stand in the city market of a nearby town and started off. I brought produce from my folks place and sold it to city customers and there were plenty of them with bulging pocketbooks. Back of me was the normal life of a farmer son. My parents were unusually standing people. My father was a lifelong Conrad till the day of his death. The business theory I'd learned in college was now being practiced and I was equipped beyond many of my competitors to be materially successful soon. I had expanded until I was represented in all the city markets and also in another city in nineteen twenty one we had the forerunner of the later depression and my customers disappeared successively. I had closed my stands and was finally wiped out all together being a young man of affairs I had begun to do a little business and social drinking and now with time on my hands I seem to do more of it following a year of factory work during which time I got married. I got a job with a grocer as a clerk. My Grocer employer was an expert winemaker and I had free access to his cellar. The work was monotonous in the extreme behind the counter all day when I had been used to driving around attending a business meeting people and building for what I thought was a great future I marked to a milestone the death of my father. I missed greatly. I kept hitting the wine with just occasional use of liquor leaving the grocery I went back into the produce business and out people went back to liquor again and got my first warning to quit before it got me. I was anxious to get with a concern. Which would give me an opportunity to build up again and landed a job. With a nationally known biscuit company I was assigned to a good business region covering several important towns and almost at once began to earn real money in a very short time. I was the star salesman of the company winning a reputation as a business getter. Naturally I drank with my better customers for on my route. I had many stops where there was a good business but I had things rather well under control. And in the early days of this job I seldom wound up my day's work with any visible effects of drinking. I had a private brewery at home which was now producing fifteen gallons a week most of which I drank myself. It is typical of the attitude. I had toward alcohol at that time. That when a fire threatened total destruction of my home and garage I rushed to the seller and rescued my most precious possessions a keg of wine and all the beer. I could carry and got pretty indignant when my better half suggested that I had better get some of the needed effects out of the house before it burned down. My home. Brewing gradually became a bore and I began to carry home bottles of powerful bootleg whiskey starting with a half pint every night and winding up with a cord as my daily after allowance. For Time I kept on the job. Spacey my drinks and route and very little of them in the morning hours. I just couldn't wait until I got home to drink. In a very short time I became an all day drinker chain store managers and quantity buyers. Were both my guests and hosts and every now and then we had prodigious parties finally in a reorganization shakeup resulting in new district managers with a pretty poor territory. Deal for me. I gave the company two weeks notice and quit. I had bought a home but in the year and a half following I had little income and finally lost that I became satisfied with just enough to live on and by the liquor I wanted then. I landed in the hospital when my car was hit by a truck. My car was ruined entirely that loss and my injuries. Plus recriminations of my wife sort of sobered me up. When I got out of the hospital I stayed sober for six weeks and had made up my mind to quit. I went back in the business where I had been successful salesman but with another company when I started with this concern I talk things over with my wife and made her some very solemn promises. I wasn't going to touch another drop of liquor by this time. Prohibition was a thing of the past and saloons and clubs where I was well known as a good customer and a good spender became patrons. I rolled up my business until I was again. A star but after the first four months on the new job. I began to slip. It is not unusual in the drinking experience of any man that after time of sobriety he comes to the conclusion that he can handle it in. No time at all liquor again became the most important thing in my life and every day became like another steady drinking in every saloon in club on my route I would get to headquarters every night in a top heavy condition. Just able to maintain equilibrium. I began to get warnings and was repeatedly fired and taken on again. My Wife's parents died about this time. In unfortunate circumstances all my troubles seemed to be piling up on me and liquor was the only refuge. I knew some nights I wouldn't go home at all and I did go home. I was displeased when my wife had supper ready and equally angry when she didn't I didn't want to eat at all and frequently when I underestimated consumption of the amount of liquor I brought home. I made extra trips back to town to renew the supply my morning ration when I started out with five double whiskies before I could do any business at all. I would go into a saloon trembling like a leaf tired appearance and deathly sick. I would down to double whiskies feel the glow and become almost immediately transformed in half an hour. I would be able to navigate pretty well and start out on my route. My daily reports became almost illegible and finally following arrests for driving while intoxicated and on job at that I got scared and stayed sober for several days not long afterward. I was fired for good. My wife suggested I go to my old home in the country which I did continued drinking convinced my wife. I was a hopeless case and she entered sued for divorce. I got another job but didn't stop drinking. I kept on working. Although my physical condition was such as to have required extensive hospitalization for years. I hadn't had a peaceful night's sleep and never knew a clear head in the morning I had lost my wife and became resigned to going to bed some night and never waking again. Every drunkard has one or two friends who have entirely given up hope for him but I came to the point where I had none that is none but my mother and she devoted soul had tried everything with me through her people came to me and talked but nothing they said some were ministers and others good. Church members helped me a particle. I would agree with them when they were with me and as fast as they went away. I'd go after my bottle. Nothing suggested to me seemed to offer a way out. I was getting to a place where I wanted to quit drinking but didn't know how my mother heard of a doctor who had been having marked success with alcoholics. She asked me if I'd like to talk to him and I agreed to go with her. I had known of course of the various cures and after we had discussed the matter of my drinking fairly thoroughly. The doctor suggested that I go into the local hospital for a short time. I was very skeptical even after the doctor hinted there was more to his plan than medical treatment. He told me of several men whom I knew who had been relieved and invited me to meet a few of them who got together every week. I promised I would beyond deck at their next meeting but told him. I had little faith in any hospital treatments meeting night. I was as good as my word and met the small group. The doctor was there but somehow I felt quite outside the circle. The meeting was informal. Nevertheless I was little impressed. It is true they did know psalm singing nor was there any set ritual. But I just didn't care for anything religious if I had thought of God it all in the years of drinking. It was with a faint idea that when I came to die I would sort of fix things up with him.

"district manager" Discussed on #QualityMatters

"A good and so but these are the things you gotta be careful about how you address Especially as you move up. The ranks is in. It's so tough. It can be very heartbreaking like you WANNA protect your people on one hand but then on the other end you've got to work with the customer and you've got these other requirements. It's how you can get pulled in so many durant so you know again. It goes to what our care to really is. We consider this guy who was so rude to us. And just think maybe he just wasn't ready for that probably. He's a great mechanic probably really cares about as employees. Yeah but it's just not right and so then it makes me think you know two episodes ago or three others that you know about the mission statement the mission statement. We have discovered in this process that each one of these shops is independently owned and operated. It's really hard to get a hold of Somme. I don't know who the district manager is that we're talking to. Maybe he owns both. He has to own bow shops for him to be able to. I don't know but there's some chain of management there. Yeah in you know. There's no mission statement that I can find and I spent a lot of time looking and there was kind of a mission statement for their owner operator group bright like hey we had this owner operator website and remission of this website for owner operators is blah blah blah blah blah So it looks like they haven't taken the time to make a mission statement for their whole chain probably because each one is individually owned and operated in. They're expecting that. But that goes to choosing your managers and choosing your owner operators. You know it feels like through our experience that they just say. Oh you WANNA do it okay. Great give us a cash. And here's how we're going to help you now and there's not a lot of which then itself. I mean really. I think most people assume that's the way most business operates is will provide a sheriff's you haven for dog it which only works. Everything's perfect right and things far perfect. You have to have something deeper that you rely on to get the job done and this district manager those vid lasting. Sat This district manager. While maybe he's not done was awesome job of explaining his his wine to or his mission to his facility. Managers he clearly has some very old school values. That rhyme is personal decisions and he's got something deeper to attach to. If you don't have that deeper something when things get rough what are you GonNa. What are you going to stick to? What are you gonNA unifier around? Yeah I I really think you know. Of course I don't have any say in the matter but the lube shop needs to consider having an overarching admission like we go and talk the hotel chain that we talked about that. Stephen Covey visited the global chain or whatever. National chain had its mission statement. Each location has mission statement that reflected that and the each department within the location had a mission statement and I think the this lube shop definitely and it could be that it's just this one location could be that's not functioning and I know that this location particular has changed management several times. That's why I keep getting better now and I'll try it again so it could just be that little one location. I really haven't visited any other locations for this particular company So it was just an interesting. You know we look through. We looked at everything through the eyes of this quality world and mission statements unleashes management. So as we were going through all this we both said that we really gotTa talk about this. Folks can learn a lot from it. You can learn so much from these things well and it goes back to on our previous episode when we were challenging you to make a mission for your department you know. If you're an independently owned franchise make a mission statement if you don't have one and even if your over arching you know brand has one still make one for your. Don't just copy. There's I think that was great with the hotel. Did they said well? We're in this location and we know what these people need you. So make one for your location for what your people need there. Now if you didn't have already quality matters x-ray listening..

"Out of the the thing is a lot of times. Jewelry is is a mystery right. If I'm buying Alexis whatever I know what it is but when you buying jewelry is it worth what it's worth wolf she like it. Will he like it? And all that stuff. So once you have a customer your top performers how they build that relationship so becomes a lifetime customer. You may notice us when we were on our way walking back to the room or in now. We went by several small room. Small booths out there. And perhaps you've noticed. I always noticed when I walk through that some them. Have you know shamrocks tint solar decorations or one of them have doughnut? Sir Lights or different signs pictures or postcards and that's strategic in a way I mean that's a definite Statement that they make about themselves or personalities and what happens and generally speaking many of them have candy in a dish or something on their desk generally speaking. That's all there to establish that to put people at ease. One of our greatest sales associates was showing a diamond to a woman and her son for his future fiance. And they're here around lunchtime and that had been a long process. It looked at several different things and the sales associate said. You know what I'm hungry. Why don't we order a pizza? That's very unusual. A jewelry store right so they chose what they wanted on their pizza. They ordered a pizza. They were able to get the process. They had lunch in that booth and they were able to find something for her. And so that's part of the fun and that's one of the things that's really. Greg Smith is well is that you're pretty much able to do whatever you like. Many selling organizations I think associates know what they'd like to do but for whatever reason be at a corporate line or management line. They're they're hindered from being everything they possibly could be. That's what's Nice about here. You're not so I heard the story and maybe about eight years ago but I still remember it. We were having lunch at this restaurant meeting someone you my wife was there. I was there and this person is a nice meeting and the wait staff was so amazing that I made a comment to the manager said hey the quality of service outstanding us as just last week. See that over there. His name's John and he has regular couple that come it's a mother and a daughter. The daughter brings the mother because she's getting older every Wednesday for lunch and while chatting two weeks ago the daughter was telling mom you know. I'M GONNA be out of town and you're GonNa Miss Your next week's appointment so the waiter said You know you're not and the waiter took time off. His shift went to get the mom bring into the restaurant. The management it and that's like ultimate customer service and that fantastically wasn't even for me and it was just. That story still remembers a hat. It's amazing that's really good. And and that makes you know you're in the right place either as a customer or as an associate we often don't hear people say. I could work anywhere I want to but I WANNA work here. It's all about culture. Yeah so tell me about culture because you've got people you mentioned This woman Who WORKED IN ANOTHER JEWELRY STORE? Hetero own for a while so when you bring different people in how do you indoctrinate them in the best sense of the word because it sounds like very not so good into the smyth way what is the smyth way. And how do you get people to really believe it? So it's not just going through the motions but it's actually living it breathing in a lot of the begins with the selection We take a lot of time getting to know the people that are gonNA come to work for us several interviews that we go through and we want to make sure that we're a good fit for them and they're a good fit for us and we have interview guide so we follow right down kind of the answers we get to things and we may circle back question those again and we don't always hit it right but most of the times when we bring someone in one of the questions we ask. Is there a lot of things that motivate people to many to be asked one question but we're going to if you could Rate these than the matter of importance to you recognition advancement money and quality of life. Tell me about each of those and what those means here. It used to be when I was first asking that question. Decades Ago There's always money or advancement the recognition. If you had somebody who was my age older they might say quality of life almost unfailingly now. Quality of life comes up and that can mean different things to different pdf so we expand that a little bit says but it's Really hypocritical if you're in business disengaged and helping people celebrate their most important occasions with their families and then you don't take notice of the importance of the families and the life occasion sees people have so when we find that fit. That takes you a long long way already into establishing women our culture we only see you cannot teach personality. You can't really teach character. You can teach techniques and you can teach product and I think to teach. The other stuff is very much Things stories are so important that when one of our employees does something notable that we capture that story. He's because when we talk about the principal customer services really important and most people like UK Customer Services. Really important. Let me tell you about Judy. This happened a year ago. And you tell that story now all of a sudden people go. I get what that means just like when you were talking about quality of life. What does that mean to people that we need to dig deeper and this allows us to share. This is what great service looks like. And you know I remember Stanley. Marcus wrote In his book quest for the best when business is good no employees as good as they think they are. When businesses bad no employees as bad as management thinks they are right. And so we're going to have good times and bad times but if you establish a high level of trust you'll get through all those times together so we've had associates that had personal tragedies and things that have involved being away from our business for a period of time being away from work but what I can say is when you do the right thing for the people who work with you and work for you. That comes back to you. Time and again also. I think sometimes what's happened in retail general payrolls such now that it's very difficult every get si- staffs training is expensive whether you do or not. Yes and if you only have to st to coverage to people opening three in the middle of the day somebody can run to the bank and to closing it's very difficult to have meaningful customer interactions right or associate interactions. So sometimes you have to overspend. I guess would be the term for it just to have enough people president to get a experience. Yeah Mark. One of your children was coming into sales. Maybe the jewelry business would be the advice. You would give to get them to kind of understand it better and be successful at it. I think the first thing that people have to learn how to listen and not just listened but really hear what someone else is saying. I've been fortunate. We have lots of kids and I've been fortunate that they have all Sort of found their way what they'd like to do is you and a couple of them have worked through here and brief periods of time. They've come to have one now that's twelve and he works on special events industrial. Things enjoys that and even if they all make a career out of this the skills that they learn from doing. This loss helped him. I think everybody sells and it starts. Who Listening and then find out what people want or need and in helping them figure out a way to achieve that. Unless you got that done then you can do what you want to brilliant if you were looking into the future and the jewelry businesses changing just like every industry is changing. How are you seeing the transaction Happening in the future. Let's say ten years from now. What does the future look like in? How Are you hearing your staff to meet the brave new world? I think that retail in general is changing dramatically. Obviously there's a convenience factor from being able to go online and order things. I think the retailers that are going to survive the brick and mortar retailers are gonNA survive are going to have to offer compelling experiences for the people who come. They're going to have to do something different than most of the stores and they have to be really consistent so if you're trying to say someone well if they look at this they might also enjoy this right or are they might like this service or to take advantage of an appraisal or to take advantage of a repair service. You have to discipline people to mention those things to make those top of mind because the computer does it. The computer does know who you are. But they'll say if you like this you might also like this right. He liked to do the dance shipping. You'd like to do other things other financing the computer's very consistent with that see. It's one thing to say. We bake fresh cookies but the day we didn't or they someone burned the cookies and we didn't get any other ones out that ruins it for whoever comes on that day. We can say anything we want to about our business but the proof of our business is in our delivery. Every with the customer right. Thanks so much was in now with me..

"district manager" Discussed on The No Limits Selling Podcast

"Hello everyone today. I have the privilege of sitting down with mark rose well. He is a manager at a jewelry store. It's a different way of looking at sales right. You're helping people get that that joy that love if you give a gift to the right person also romance their true very true mark. Welcome to the program. Thank you very much nice to be here because I want to look at sales through different lenses. 'cause sometimes you get insights. That help us figure out what's going on in our cells lives through your eyes. Yeah so I appreciate you coming in today and I want to take you back in history. The date was April Seventh. Nineteen seventy-nine you a Roofer you're in Texas and it was frigging hot. Tell us that story. That's all true has actually a a welder and I also built roof trusses and so we were installing trusses on the roof of the First Baptist Church in my head Texas. It was April seventh and it was already about one hundred six degrees. I remember that temperature and Texas Summers are notoriously long notoriously hot and I thought surely there must be something I can do or I can work inside and wear my suit and so I thought well tomorrow I will go and apply at all the different jewelry stores in the Mall there in Waco. There's only one and if I don't get hired there then the next day I'll go and try and be hired at one of the banks and so the third jewelry store I went to hired me and I was on my way so you started coming a salesperson and They probably paid you a huge hourly salvo yes. It was two dollars and ninety cents an hour and there would be commission and the way they sold it to me. Was they said what you are going to be able to work You know fifty to forty eight hours a week. But we'll pay you for fifty two nice so that was good right and back then we have blue law so we were closed on Sundays. Which made my mom happy still was able to go to church and my hands were like catcher's Mitts are. There are just rough right so my first job in the jewelry store was to get my hands into conditioner. I could show jewelry and be presentable. Shake hands with people right so for the first several months. I just wrapped packages. I worked in the back of the House and every couple of days the manager would come up and Salem feel your hands and if they were still to calloused. I was ready to go yet so after several months of doing that I finally was able to get out on the floor and start showing jewelry. Who's your first customer? First customer was a gentleman. Well it's not really true are first encountered that I thought would be my first guy. Throws Gentleman came in? He was looking for a watch and it was about three hundred dollars and he told me that he would be back. And I was so new to sales that I believe and the older manage well. The associates in the store said you know what would really impress him would be if you would get the boxster that watch and you'd gift wrap it and put it in the bag and stand out in front of the store and wait for him to come back by. That'll really impress him. Because you won't be wasting time and several hours went by and I would look in the store and said I hope nothing happened to him. He said he would never came. And the managers knew it obviously but it was like an object lesson though very iota of so now. Tell us where you are now. We're sitting in the offices at dealers into Monia Maryland where one of the largest chillers the United States we're probably the largest jeweler on the east coast the United States and warned this story that we're in right now it's fifty one thousand square feet. It has an eighteen thousand square foot sales floor and then we also have two other stores. And those are the stories that I primarily work with and so one of those tours is about eight thousand square feet and the other stories about forty five hundred square feet. Those stores are in Ellicott city and then the other one is in the Annapolis towne centre down in Annapolis and we're fortunate. Most of the people that staff those stores have spent time in this store So we have a process that we go through that kind of tries to get everybody on the same page and you get the same level of service. Even though the stores are smaller in either of those stores that you would in the store you have many million dollar producers a year that work sue can you highlight to them that may have different personalities but still get the job done so you don't have to name names but just breast to get a sense of what kind of dedication what kind of personalities producing? That can be different as well sure. Yeah so we have every personality type you can have at Smith. I've always said this is more like a theater troupe. Than a retail store. Right you know all we need jugglers unicyclists and we could even have a circus. Sheriff wanted to and so one of the associates his very nurturing very mom like very much Able to take a true interest really relationship selling. That's my tendency. I like to do that as well but she. She's very good at Bringing people in and getting them in the moment of their engagement or their wedding. And what's going to happen and she's gone many engagement parties. She's attended several weddings. And she's been in the shadow on store for about eighteen years prior coming here and she She's mazing and she also happens to be my wife so that's pretty good. Well we she. Countless hit a home run and then one of the other ones Is Much more. Technically oriented and that appeals to a certain customers. Well so we have a lot of clients. They'll come in there like engineering. And they're not interested in warm fuzzies. They're not interested in the emotional vaccine. An exactly they find a diamond that meets their specific needs to the equation and the metallurgy and everything that goes along with. Go ahead make a purchase. I think one of the things we do here. Is We try and match the customer to the associates? We have people at the front of the store. In fact you mentioned that you agreed upon coming in what was the name of the Lady Young Lady who was out there with Mackenzie and she's We have a couple of Erin McKenzie. I'm not sure which was Mackenzie and it was just a really warm. Welcome to the store and it was noteworthy as soon as I might use it. Only she's amazing. Yeah exactly right prior uptake and so we're trying to that will offer a beverage. We make cookies every day. We do that just to try and welcome people kind of like you'd welcome them into your house. And then in that brief conversation they can sort of assess maybe who they have a little bit who they're going to match you up with initially and then proceed from there in the typical sales kind of organization. It's getting the appointment. It's Doing the presentation handling objections closing the sale and then deepening into the account. So you can sell the more jewelry or get referrals. That will allow you to sell to their friends and family. So how does that work here in the jewelry business? What does that process look like? I think jury is stalling. I've ever done other than roofing right. And so you know not as much but my experience has been. Is that Before anybody who's going to buy anything from you have to believe you. They have to trust you. There has to be a report that comes from. That jewelry is a very emotional purchase We always say that the true value of a piece of jewelry is what it means to the person who gets it. Whether it's ten dollars fifteen dollars a hundred thousand dollars. I only have all of that so we can provide anything anybody's looking for so the first thing we have to do is help them lower their guard. I think people don't like to be sold things. They and they're going to be much more receptive if they feel warm and welcome entrusts even the engineers if they feel. Let your competent than what you're saying to them is correct. They're going to lower their defenses law. So sometimes we'll use language like you know more I work for Smyth drillers but today I work for you and the more I know about who you're shopping for and what you're trying to say more help I can beatty. So let's just have a conversation each. Tell me tell me about the person. Tell me about what we're doing. Tell me what matters to you. Let's backtrack a bit. He used a very curious phrase. What are you trying to say because we're trying to say something that gift do people understand what you're saying what you're trying to say so we process here to try and help keep the sales mentality in front of people before he began making product presentation and we call it grows so the first thing is get on a first name basis with your customer g? Yeah NEXT ONE IS. What's the name of the recipient so has the are? Then what's the occasion and then what's the when and when is the occasion because we need to know that we have to get this engraved or we're going to have to make this? How much time do we have? Many people come in and shop like I do they. Shop the day of the event right and then the last one is what he wants to give to say and the hardest thing for us in teaching. The process is to get newer salespeople to wait for that because many times everyone has something they want to say to someone when they give them a piece of jewelry they may not even know themselves what that is in fact when they get the right piece of jewelry. It's going to help them say in a minute what it might take them years to put into words. Rosalie and so they have to process that they have to work through that. I've been interested in following some of your work. We have some similarities. And some of the things we do and so through that process when you get their name when you get the recipient's name when you find out what the occasion as those are all familiar. Thanks to the customer if you can get them to picture those things that's non-threatening buying a piece of jewelry can be scary but celebrating wife's birthday with your friends out for dinner. They can see that in their mind and now you can find a piece. It's going to help them in that moment. And that's really what we're talking about fantasy books. They have this thing called Talisman where people can go to scary places as long as you've got the talisman they feel safe than what you're doing is by building that rapport is taking the fear..

How I Built This

Panera Bread/Au Bon Pain: Ron Shaich (2018)

"Ron Shake isn't a household name like you say Howard Schultz but you could argue that. What Howard Schultz did for coughing Ron shake did for cheddar broccoli soup or the SEO cheese he's Bagel because like Howard? Ron Wasn't just focused on product. He was interested in creating a space of place where people could hang out for a long time. Maybe even have a PTA meeting or social gathering and really linger over that Bagel or cup soup. This is the famous third-place concept concept that both Howard Schultz and Ron shake wanted to tap into in. That's how Panera became one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the world. In fact if you've invested the seven thousand dollars in Pinera stock in nineteen ninety nine. You'd be sitting on more than half a million dollars by two two thousand seventeen now. The thing is if you met Ron shake say in high school. This is not the path you've predicted for him. Ron Wasn't even interested in business. Is Passion was politics. His parents were raging liberals and Ron grew up going to rallies and volunteering on campaigns. All over New Jersey eventually went to Clark University where naturally he majored in politics and he was quickly elected to student government. And that could have been Ron's life life except for one day when something happened to Ron and a group of friends something kind of small but something that when you look back on it probably probably changed his entire life. Yeah so we. We were in a local convenience store called store. Twenty four cross the street from the main entrance to the Clark campus and they accused US shoplifting and tossed us out cecily guys just being rowdy earnings or wild. No we were shopping but I came back to campus episode and I was in my dorm with a couple of friends and I said you know. Why are we shopping there? How they can they treat us like this? What supports that store? We said what do we need what we can we can do this ourselves. We can have our own convenience store and I said you know this isn't going to be that hard. Let's go do it. And we approach the university. They weren't so keen on this but I moved the question to student body They voted in support of it and I basically agreed to spend that summer between my sophomore and junior here opening this convenience store guy. Wow So. What'd you guys Sal We sold Everything from drinks to Munchies two cookies and candy and you know our assistant manager would come to my apartment at five in the morning and we actually would go to this deep discount supermarket and buy I don't know ten or fifteen baskets full of merchandise that we'd stocked the store with and We hired twenty or thirty different students to work there. I will be very franken. Saint Joe's more interested in that store than when I was in my own academically. And and your guy who's all still focused on public policy in government but I guess this it was Kinda cool you liked. He kind of liked doing business running a business. Yeah and and you know. I didn't see myself as that kind of guy and it took me a wile to make sense of that but in so many ways running a business is no different than campaign in fact a campaign is a the business that that essentially has one day in which it ends a business campaign that goes on and never ends so at this point in his life. Ron Wasn't quite sure what he wanted to do. Business or politics but people around him saw how how much he loved running that convenience store and a lot of people said. Hey why don't you get an MBA. So Ron did he enrol at Harvard. Business School in Nineteen seventy six. And when he finished unlike a lot of his classmates who went into banking or finance ron decided to go into retail and he took a job in the mid west and a place called held the original cookie company. Twenty stores in shopping malls We grew it to about one hundred and twenty five. I took the job as the third year of the NBA. What I mean by that is I took a job as a district manager? Basically Iran ten or fifteen of these cookie stores half the United States and I spent went My time running around the country and I ended up opening thousands of these cookie stores around the country so as certain point you're learning about the cookie business I guess and then at a certain point you get this idea like hey I can do this myself. I can have my own cookie store yes and and I can literally remember traveling Cross Indiana. I'm away to Fort Wayne Dope a new cookie store and it hit me and I said why are we opening this in a Mav. There's a huge opportunity open these in in an urban setting. Why don't we open one and I can remember going to my boss? I remember him taking me to meet. Beat the CEO of the company. Said I wanNA open an urban cookie. Store looks him and he says we don't do that here. We Open Mall based retail units. I thought to myself well. If you're not GONNA do it. I'd like to go do it. Why shouldn't we and I'm the Kinda guy by Sam going to do it? I want to go do it and it led led me to actually resigning my job and I moved back to Boston and I started looking for real estate and the reality was. Nobody would Li space for cookies. Find any sir for cookie store because they thought it wouldn't make enough money to pay the rent. 'cause I had no credibility. Yeah I had no real money I had you know no balance sheet to sign a lease and so I went to my dad and I said I I want my inheritance. Whatever it's going to be I want the opportunity to use it and I had about twenty five thousand dollars Ned Essentially let me. He gave me seventy five thousand dollars and that one hundred thousand dollars became the GRUB stake the equity. That allowed us to build that. I four hundred square-foot cookie store. Wow in downtown Boston. What did you name the store? We named it the cookie jar and I can remember. We took the toll house recipe. Right it off the bag. I bought a small mixer and I would pass out cookies in front of the stories that we were building. It and I'd start to adjust the recipe based on what I learned talking to customers and and you were the baker. You were making cookies yourself. Yeah we opened. There were three employees. I made it was me and to folks I will never forget at that day. It just seemed like people never stopped walking a coming in and purchase fifty thousand people day going by and I'll never forget it. I got to the end of the day walking past or foot traffic. Yeah but I got to the end of that at first afternoon. We opened one o'clock guide and by six we closed and my back was hurting. Oh and legs were hurting. And I can't in the money and I I realize we only brought in four hundred dollars.

necessarily understand exactly what we're doing but they were supportive so you know that really helped in our journey we have some good friends who may not be on the plan but they understand if you're gonna hang out with us we're gonna cook at home or in a play euchre like we're not gonna go out to a fancy dinner and I really I know you're gonna ask a question I really feel like that's like the support we're looking for through that they just really helped us stay on process absolutely that's very very cool good very good so what do you tell people the key menu you got her home older I'm

the envelope system on a budget you know it's got to be on the budget the budget is the law and if we wrote it in the budget we were aggressive budgets we were going to hit that budget no matter what is that in like at the beginning of this side of really nice gun collection I was a big gun collector and going into Dave Ramsey plan I'm like alright we'll give her everything I'll be super aggressive just don't touch the guns yeah there's no contract and I mean we were three months from you know with the house and we're gonna be two hundred dollars under budget and I had a Glock it was the first gun I ever bought it's like very important to me but did not budget that month and not miss my tuner house of way more important me with three months left so got rid of it and you know we

few way too many but or to go man congradulations you guys very cool okay what do you tell people the key to getting out of that is I definitely to have your spouse on board I will admit that I was a little hesitant at first I cried our first couple budget meetings with taking everything away from me and then I learned that I didn't really need all that stuff so yeah it's getting near south

standing in my underwear in front of the Mirror there was this ledge to put your clothes on purse etc while you change I heard a loud sigh that sounded like a man in him aroused state ah looked up at the mirror to see if there was someone or a ghost behind me and saw a reflection in the mirror of a man's face looking at me from the closet through Ooh the park window I screamed he came out of the closet I thought he was going to attack me and being cornered in the basement I ran toward him ready to beat the shit out Yes yes parentheses mind you I'm still just in my underwear he ran away from me an exited the locker room I quickly got dressed and went went out to call security I recognize the man as a housekeeper who frequently came to say hello to me when I was working security called the police and searched the property to find him well I waited in a secure location I didn't want this creep to follow me home they eventually found him hiding on the property and arrested him he was cited for misdemeanor and release lease I never heard from the DA or the police after that but he was fired from his job as you well know at that time peeping wasn't seen as a first step in escalating sex describes I never saw him again but I hope that asshole didn't go on to commit more or worse sexual assaults I don't live in Santa Barbara Anymore but I will be coming up from my favorite weekend

closing alone one night and in the back area washing the dishes when I hear the bell rang signaling customer had just walked in this because I could've sworn I locked the door when I had started my closing task asks who Peek my head out from the back to see a large man right inside the front door staring directly through my eyes into my soul I call out my customer service service voice I'm sorry Sir we're closed for the evening this did nothing to stop him and I realize he's most likely on drugs when he continues to stare and Walk Towards Me Only we saying Yogurt I apologize again and my brain goes into survival mode pretend to call out to my non existent co worker saying no it's okay I'll let him know reclosed large and burly maybe meth man starts to walk towards the door that leads

Disassociated: Christian Longo

"Christian did Michael Longo was married at age nineteen and he was the father of three by the time he was twenty six originally from Michigan and raised as Jehovah's Witness nece Longo did not adapt well to his life as a husband and father his wife Mary Jane Stayed Home with their children while Longo was expected to provide for their family but he quickly turned to a life of crime after getting into trouble for check fraud. Longo took his family on the run in a stolen minivan Dan but after promising to turn over a new leaf he continued to steal and to scam for money the Longo family moved from Michigan to Ohio Ohio to Oregon then their four year old son Zachary and three year old daughter Sadie were found dead in the waters of lint slow the bodies of Mary Jane their infant daughter Madison were recovered. Just days later join us at the quiet end today for the story of a young family destroyed by the evil acts of compulsive liar and manipulator Christian Longo the lives of this young families started out with hopes and aspirations and but ended in tragedy and despair. The only one left to explain what happened was the one who could never be trusted or believed but we can debate causations nations and examined missed opportunities in our efforts to understand these murders of Mary. Jane Zachary Sadie and Madison Long Ago did an Oregon beer for this. I did one of the brewers you really liked. 'cause they make a bunch of wild sales this cascade escape. Bruin and we're going to have some cascade Blueberry Kale. I Spear Deep Reddish Purple Colour Pinkish head. Don't don't see too many for me pink heads now but I'm GonNa have to be honest here and say that I have had this fear and I did enjoy it. I know you have on telling our listeners okay and it's got a nice earthy blueberry aroma a tart. Lou Berry taste a little bit of that earthy funk in there and it's a dry beer with to settle tartness is spear cascade makes it a lot of Nice while Dale's the the problem is rather expensive. They Act Pricey but they're great. Wait for a special occasion for someone you love. That's why we got. It could be more special than have a beer with you. I can't think of anything more special than having. NBA With you here we are see right so we'll open his beers up who had on down to our friends. At the quiet sounds good all right. Follow me down to the quiet end will enjoy the spear and share it of course I we will. We'll share it with ourselves and we'll share with the rest of the folks down here. That's right so on Easter at our story today. I mean I'm going going to say it's a difficult one but there's also a lot to learn from it. It's kind of an amazing remarkable tale through some things to learn very tragic of course firsts so but I think to understand the lives of the family we might need to have some basic background to the beliefs and practices of Jehovah's Witnesses Yeah. I think that helps because that is a the disappointed story. It's a large part so Jehovah's Witnesses was founded in eighteen seventy nine by Pennsylvania businessman named Charles Russell Russell believed the second coming of Christ would occur in nineteen fourteen so Jehovah's Jehovah's Witnesses emphasize the coming into the world they reject blood transfusions because of the New Testament Command to abstain from blood and they don't vote they don't serve in the military they also don't celebrate any traditional Christian holidays and they don't celebrate birthdays. I remember before I started ready learning anything about Jehovah's way back in the beginning of my career. Hilo boy any office and I noticed from his chart that his birthday was the next day so I said to him happy birthday. He looked at me as mothers says we're Jehovah's Witnesses. We don't celebrate birthdays say you can't even say happy birthday. She was research pretty conservative witness. I guess she was very staunch. I don't know it's just hard for kids like that to not be able to celebrate what other kids are celebrating braiding and then they ran into some of those difficulties with interactions with other people and families. That weren't Jehovah's Witnesses. Oh absolutely I mean I think it's difficult perfect for the kids and it was definitely an influence on Christian longos childhood that followed him into adulthood or through so Christian Michael Longo born in nineteen seventy four in Iowa he was adopted as a child by Joseph Longo who married Chris's mother mother joy in the late Seventies. The biologic father divorced his wife Right. They didn't stay together so this year nineteen seventy four was an important one for for Jehovah's Witnesses because many of them expected Armageddon to happen in nineteen seventy five right so nineteen fourteen didn't happen obviously and and they came up with a reason for that not sure what the reason was then when the world didn't end in nineteen seventy five they also said well. We can't predict it exactly okay but the world is going to end so it's hard when you're calling for the end of the world and then that time passes you better come up with some reason right so I think it makes the people very skeptical and rightly so so in the nineteen seventy five terminus which is what some witnesses called the potential event was based on the analysis of Watch Tower Society Biblical experts who said that the year nineteen seventy five would mark the end of guides day of rest so they reason because God could be expected to go back to work once a day of rest was over what was going to happen to end the world could be expected to happen before the end of nineteen seventy five yes. It's a very complicated way that they were figuring that out which I don't think is that relevant to go into just as long as you know that I think you're on board with what would have been going on in the minds of people who were Jehovah's at this time to an extent so Chris was Joyce first trial and joy was a teenager. She was actually a teenage and h bride of an abusive husband according to joy when she was pregnant with her second child Chris's younger brother Justin. Her husband beat her in her abdomen with a chain gene trying to induce an abortion according to a psychologist Dr Steven share who would later evaluate Chris. The violence in his childhood destroyed enjoyed his sense of self worth this meant that after he became an adult Chris sought out the approval of other people in order to maintain his self esteem so Chris lied a and he stole in order to get approval yeah. It just seems like a simplistic explanation for how this guy acted behaved well. I certainly don't think that's the whole story but it's something can't be the whole story now of course not it's never one thing that affects the person or make someone who they are were. Berkshire fingered as well. I don't know if it was that simplistic but that was one of his things that he brought up so join divorced Chris's father when priests was just about four years old then she met Joe Longo in a store where she was working. Joe Was Athletic. He'd been a star wide receiver on the Morningside College football team in Sioux City until he was about ten years old. Chris's family was Roman Catholic in the nineteen eighties. Joe Longo became a district manager for a chain of retail detail stores and then he began to earn a good middle class salary. The family was financially comfortable and Chris got what he needed from his parents and seemed seem to be having a happy childhood at that point yet but then one day some Jehovah's Witnesses knocked on the rondos door joy let them in and she became quickly the interested in the faith so she began attending meetings and one when she went to the meeting she would take Chris in his younger brother along with her so so Chris and his brother became involved field service activity with joy by this I mean that they would spend hours going door to door to try to convert people into to Jehovah's witness religion now. I don't know how big of a thing that is now but it was certainly a big thing where and when I grew up we had Jehovah's Witnesses coming coming to our door at least a couple times a week where you're in a hot spot I we we had them at times but it it wasn't that frequent I did grow up in Michigan not that far actually from where the longos lived that might be it might have been hotspot yeah but you know it was funny is that when my older sister became a teenager she would purposely let the Jehovah's in and give them T- and talk to them just to irritate my mother because when they came by and it was my mother home she would have US hide and draw the curtains because she didn't want to have to talk to them so just kind of become a game when I come home homeschool. If these people were there my sister would be entertaining them until my mom came home from work and then after they finally went home because everyone was polite in front of them. My sister and my mother would have it out. Our would love to hear that discussion. It was kind of fun yeah so Chris it. His brother became involved in this activity and this meant that they would spend hours going door to door Christmas smart and really socially comfortable so it didn't take long before he was a speaker at the meetings and he began talking to people about his faith he really became something of a religious prodigy with his excellent public speaking ability and from the young age of eleven he'd be called up to do a Bible reading into explain Bible verses at their Kingdom Hall which is their Church Right now so Chris had definitely really the gift of Gab yes he could really charm people and convince people of almost anything you could and we'll we'll see as we talk later about uh-huh his crimes how facile he was with his language in how he could talk people out of things into thanks really quite remarkable. Yes yes yes for someone who really didn't even have a high school education right. He did have a gift so eventually stepfather. Joe Longo also joined the witnesses assists and as the Manga family became more involved with the witnesses. Christmas brother began to have very limited contact with children who were not witnesses so that's the problem. It can become very isolating ensure. Can

"You know i remember vividly probably what a decade ago um you're going to a holiday party that my district manager hosted and you know in you walked in and he collected all the keys remember the that was there and we had fantastic food and he had catered and you know there were adult beverage is because everybody there was an adult in we just reminisced on the year and celebrated the the results that we had and told some funny stories and cracks and jokes and had a really great time and i am at the end of the night you know made sure that everybody made it home safe this was pre uber so if somebody knew the taxi somebody got a taxi but everybody made it home safe it was a great time uh but i also think the reason why it was great time is because everybody there was was a good person and there was nobody there causing trouble so you know i hear stories like this and i nearly think that it's not about the alcohol at a party um it's the fact that you probably hasn't jerks at work there and regardless of alcohol or not they're going to be jerks and the probably jerks throughout the day anyway so you know the the root of the issue isn't that you're having to get together with alcohol the root of the issue issues at you still employ people that are problems and their djuric's nation work there and you should address that at its core yet you you you bring up a a good point that the article mentions further on down it there's a code that says people get mistreated all day long when there is no alcohol the holiday party is only revealing what is more more than likely happening behind closed doors so to me the companies that are that are eliminating this it sounds like a fall into one of two categories either one they know their some skeletons in that closet and and they're trying to toe the line they're walking on eggshells right.
