"That was just amazing and of course I put that in the newsletter, but hey, let's get to know Mark. Here is my very casual conversation. The not an interview that turned into an interview with Mark. You know what? And I'll just do the intro later. So I've got all your info. Once we figure out what we're talking about. I said, boy, the thing that drives me nuts is when people don't listen to my show, and this is where I really liked it because you pointed out something and I was like, oh, I am explaining that wrong because it made me sound like an egomaniac. You must, you must kiss my aura ring before getting on my show. And what I was really trying to say was it would be nice if you would do a better job of connecting your expertise to my audience. And I said, what do we do? Don't do a spray and pray to what you said, hey, can I kind of like, I have an alternative view on that. So what's your take on that? We should, by way of context, my book came out about two years ago when we did this and for various reasons I chose to self publish. I had the option of going down the traditional route. I chose to self publish. So it was all on me. And the book came out during COVID, which also limited options. I said, okay, podcasts, in fact, my friend Dory Clark, who is a national top selling author top business author, she said, you need to get a 150 podcasts. All right, that's my mission. And I started out where I would, okay, here's the podcast. Let me go research the host. Let me go listen to some episode. Let me craft a pitch and say, well, I looked at this episode and that one and all this, and I was getting hardly anywhere just getting no, no, no. And my background, by the way, I want to sound egotistical. I've been teaching at MIT for 20 years. So I'm not just, hey, I'm some chinook. Right. Please put me on your show. I have some credibility. I built a lot of tech startups, got some credibility here. And when I shifted, I just said, okay, this has to be volume. I did probably improve the pitch a bit as I did each time and saw what worked. But then it's really volume. And I've probably sent out will over 2000 pitches. Wow.

"Is starting to feel the stirrings of discontent in some way, hearkening back to our first point actually, I would say the most important thing that you can do is to really leverage and make use of your runway as much as possible. The truth is you can reinvent yourself into literally almost anything as long as your runway is long enough. The problem that a lot of people have is that they assume that things have to be an all or nothing proposition. They assume that, oh, well, I've decided I'm not happy in my current career. So obviously I'm going to quit my job and then suddenly find another job. Well, first of all, we all know, especially in a down economy, it often takes a while to find another job, and it often can be very, very hard, especially if you've built up a certain level of seniority to find another job right away at that same income level. That can be really, really challenging. And so what we need to do is we think about reinventing ourselves. Number one is to take to take the time that we need to really get clear on where we want to reinvent ourselves. What is the direction we want to go? What is the ideal job? And so that involves little experiments. I mean, everything from the kind of classic informational interview to maybe volunteering on a board, let's say, like a charity board so that you can explore some of those skills or even doing job shadowing for a day or a half a day with a friend. That's something that not a lot of people do. But is a very legitimate way to find out what things are like. So it's first about getting that clarity, and then beginning to try to build up as much experience and network on the side on your own time as you can so that when it becomes time for you to really make a shift for real that you're in a far stronger position to do it. One thing I've been thinking a lot about lately is what networking looks like. Now that we don't have physical proximity and I was a person who did a lot of it in my younger years, I got my first media job by essentially cold calling people toward the beginning of their career in magazines in New York and asking them for coffee. And after 20 coffee, somebody finally gave me a job. Well done. Well, it feels a little harder to cold zoom. It's awkward anyways. So what works right now? Cold calls are always a challenge. And they're never the optimal strategy. But I think that in some ways, we have to flip it around and realize something actually are easier and better. I mean, one of the things that I've started doing, as you know, in New York, I often host a lot of dinner gatherings. And of course, that is not happening right now. So I have switched to doing virtual dinner gatherings and something that I very quickly realized was, oh, wait a minute. When I do something in person in New York, I can only invite New Yorkers, or I can only invite someone who's visiting New York, but when I'm doing it virtually, literally the world is open to you. And so I have been able to tap in and have experiences visiting with colleagues from Austin and from Minneapolis and from San Francisco and we're bringing people together in a way that really wouldn't be possible before. So that's something that I've discovered that I think is exciting and better. I think that participating in events like that is great and oftentimes people underestimate their own ability to be the host of something, but it is actually such a low bar and people appreciate it so much. If you are the host and you invite them. And so I'd really encourage people to think seriously about doing that. That is great advice. Thank you, Dory. That was doy Clark. If you're looking for more information on how to level up your own plan B, Dory's website's an excellent place to start. She's at Dory Clark dot com. Now, let's talk about you. Maybe the COVID shutdown made you totally rethink your life plan. Maybe it was the peaceful protests across the world this month. Maybe you've already reinvented your career, and you have tips to share. Wherever you are in your journey, I hope you'll join me this week to talk about it. Over on hello Monday office hours. My producer Sarah storm and I get together every Wednesday at 3 p.m. eastern and go live from my LinkedIn profile. It's our coffee break. A chance to visit with listeners and talk about the episode. What's in your mind when you think about reinvention? I hope you'll come and share your thoughts with us. Hello Monday is a production of LinkedIn. The show is produced by Sarah storm and Madison schaefer. Joe de Georgie mixed our show. As head of original audio and video, Dave pond is our technical director. Maya mangini Victoria Taylor and Juliette Ferro, make sure to wear their masks when they go out. Our music was composed just for us by the mysterious breakmaster cylinder. You also heard music from paddington bear. Dan Roth is the editor in chief of LinkedIn. I'm Jesse hemple. See you next Monday, thanks for listening. I'm going for tons of walks. Oh my God. That's been sort of my little ritual because I'm sure this is the case for you too, but like the time on screen has maximized so much that I feel like I'm in front of a computer like 7 consecutive hours. So it can drive you crazy pretty fast. So I took a two hour walk this morning, I will probably walk tonight too, just to kind of get out, also because my gym is closed.

"Hello Monday, our show about the changing nature of work. And how that work is changing us. Okay, so quick question, don't overthink it. What's your plan B? What are you going to do if your job goes away? In your industry flat lines. Because this is definitely part of what's going on this year. Take media companies, I spend most of my career working for them. And I've been really crushed to watch so many of my friends and former colleagues really talented people get laid off. And it's got me thinking, as we prepare for this next big shift, maybe we just shouldn't be looking for a job like the one we have. Maybe it's time to look for something else. So how do you begin to do that? If anyone has a good answer to that question, it's my fun Dory Clark. Dory's a master at reinvention. She's actually written a book on it called me inventing you. She's written a couple of books, and she's a coach, and she teaches. She's taught recently the business school at Columbia and duke. Which is to say that she's qualified on paper, but I'm here to tell you she's also qualified in person, a couple years ago, I called her up for a drink when I needed advice on my own side hustle. Why Dori? Well, she's all action, tips, ideas, and she's always in your corner. That and she speaks from experience, Dory lost her job after 9 11. It really shook her. Here's Dory. It's something that has been on my mind for a long time. Honestly, because during one of the last great national calamities in 9 11, I lost my job as a newspaper reporter and was unemployed and was given four days of severance pay and suddenly had to support myself. So I really dove head first into the question of how do you deal with being laid off and losing your job in the midst of a truly terrible and frightening economic situation? So I definitely have a lot of thoughts and ideas to share. Wow. So as a journalist, I will say that every year that I have been in this profession, I have seen layoffs at the institutions I've worked for. And that is not targeting one institution. It's every institution. It is an industry that's deeply troubled. But 9 11, that's going back nearly 20 years. What was your life like, then what did you think you would do before that happened? Well, I think that somewhat analogous to our current situation, right now, if you are a journalist, let's say, it's not really a huge surprise when people get laid off because that's a thing that happens to journalists. But in 2001, it was a stunning and shocking thing that a journalist would be laid off because we forget it now, but the year 2000 was literally the best year all time in history for the print journalism industry. It was dripping in profits. It was so lucrative and then I totally remember that. Not to stop you. But I shortly after that period, but within a decade after that period, I went to work for fortune magazine, and they always talked about that trip to Hawaii for the entire editorial staff in the year 2000. And I was like, this is the life that I want. And that's what I thought I was signing up for, Jesse. I thought it would be all trips to Hawaii, and yet no. So I was really in the first wave of people that were laid off. And it had literally just never occurred to me that this could happen. I mean, first of all, it was my first job out of grad school. So I didn't know what was what, but I just never thought the journalism wouldn't be a secure industry. And I think for a lot of people who are experiencing a layoff now or who might feel that they are threatened with such a thing down the line, I mean, no one foresaw a pandemic like this. And so it's not like people have necessarily had a long time to think, oh gosh, I see all my friends around me being laid off. I should probably be cooking up a plan B for many people who are experiencing it today. It is coming like a bolt out of the blue and suddenly they have to deal with this very rapidly and very quickly. If you are in a place where you're needing to come up with something new or you suspect that you may in the future, how do you even start to think about what that means for you? Well, there's a couple of ways to think about it. So the first is about the urgency level, essentially. Because if you are in a position where you don't necessarily need to earn money tomorrow, but you think, oh, okay, this is a wake up call. I need to start planning for it. Then whenever there's a longer time horizon, you can be a little bit more thoughtful a little bit more deliberate. And you can start taking what I will call longer term steps that will position you better down the road. And so there's activities that you can do in that situation. Maybe it is starting a blog or a podcast or starting to write and create content on LinkedIn, something that can establish your expertise in your field, whether you want to continue in your current one or maybe you want to plan a longer term pivot and transition to another one. And those are great ways to get started and lay the groundwork. I want to jump in there and really hammer that home a second because this really is your superpower Dory. You are personally very, very good at it. One thing that I think is new about the time that we live in right now is that it used to be that if you were a journalist, as you began, and as I am, then it made sense for you to be writing on these platforms branding yourself as it were. But today, kind of anything that you want to do professionally, you're going to better position yourself for the future if you brand yourself through content. And I think that's really overwhelming for a lot of people. And a lot of people ask me, and so I would ask you, where do I begin? How do I know what is useless and spinning my wheels and what matters? I will second what you're saying. I think it really is important because ultimately, when you are creating content, we are putting something out into the world, that is the way that people who do not already know you personally can get a better sense of who you are as a person and what's powerful about that is it eliminates a large part of the risk that's involved in hiring you. And whenever you can do that, it is way better for your career. If you can make it less risky for people to pick you rather than someone else, that is a great thing. So one of the best ways that you can get started is literally to just make note of all of the questions that people ask you all the time. You're at a cocktail party. You're hanging out with people, and they have questions about your field, your industry, they want to know certain things. Maybe there's myths or misconceptions that bother you. You might have a contrarian opinion. You might say. No, location based interfaces are not the future of XYZ. Well, okay, tell us why, share your opinion. Put it out there. If you don't feel ready to start putting your own opinions out there, something that I tell people is a fantastic way to get started with training wheels is to interview other people. To reach out to colleagues or senior leaders or even somebody potentially who has a book out, I can guarantee that for many people, if you're not talking about world renowned level, almost anyone with a book wants to promote that book. And if you say, hey, can I interview you? Can I talk to you and write something about it, even if it's for your LinkedIn page, or if it's for something on a platform like medium where anyone can contribute, the odds are, they may well say yes, and it's a great way to help shine a light on someone that you admire and also begin to create content under your name and to hone your own thinking about professional development

"Conversion fanatics dot com. So rich, we're back and I want to collect the dots. I want to connect the dots. I want you to break down a fire nation. Why is networking the most talked about strategy that nobody actually wants to do? All right. So networking, it is absolutely by far the most important thing that I do on a day to today basis. And I don't like to network. I hate networking as a matter of fact. But through a couple of my interviews, one of them's Dory Clark, where she's like, look at, you know, we need to look at networking as a relationship building. Beth comstock is like, we need to look at networking like just learning about other people. There's this weird dynamic when it comes to networking, especially networking events, which are just absolute torture for me. I need to go talk to someone. And I did ask for something or hey, if I'm in the military and I'm getting out, I can not tell you how many resumes I get. Like, hey, rich, can you look at my resume? Can you send this to someone? No, no, no, no, no. This is not how it works. How it works is collecting the dots and connecting the dots. Meaning, meet people, meet people, find out what makes them tick, talk to them a little bit about yourself, have no expectations, and move on, and then just keep in touch with them. Prime example, I have a entrepreneur, army guy, he has a live streaming platform, and he's dominating the wedding industry, but we had a good conversation. He told me he's been following some of my stuff, and we talked. Next thing I know, I'm talking to West Point guy at a very prominent company who's in a position to make some big changes and he wanted my help. So they're having a few events coming up. And he wanted to enlist my help. The first thing I thought was that was probably a really this event is probably something very good to live stream. So there I go, thinking about my buddy, who I just met and hit it off with, who's in weddings, wants to kind of move over to corporate a little bit and nonprofits and everything else expand the pie for him and his company. And I did it. And now they're working together. And the reason is, I didn't give a shit about what I needed to do for me. I cared about collecting dots and connecting dots. And you know what? There's this really, really true and realistic karmic circle that I believe in. And I don't do this. It's really weird. When you do this with the intent to help other people, you kind of hope it comes back to you, but you can't rely on it to come back to you. So you have to even that is an expectation if you're like, well, so and so I hooked him up with this so they should hook me up with this. No, no, no, no, no. You can't even do that. All right, so collect the dots connect the dots and I think people will understand that you are a truly altruistic, helpful human being. And in the entrepreneur race, we are all just trying to help each other out and we're all just trying to make it. People helping people is the only way to go. So when you think about networking, don't think about who can get me this job, who can get me this money..

"So Melanie we're back and it was our mutual friend Dory Clark who's been on entrepreneurs on fire many times. She connected us. And she wrote a book the long game is a concept that I believe super strongly and actually had her on this podcast to talk about that. And I know you believe it as well. And we even talked about it a little bit at the beginning, which is do things that don't scale. That's in a way planned long game because when you're doing those things that don't scale, you're building this foundation playing the long game. So what motivates you to stay the course? Oh, yeah. And hey, I love it, Dory. Heck, yes. I love the shout out perfect. She's so awesome. Yeah, what motivates me to stay the course undeniably my core values. Period the end, it's super, super easy to say that. It's in the realm of it shows up lots of different ways in my experience, but I believe deeply in connection and contribution. And I believe deeply in connection as contribution courage as contribution. One of the people that I think of is Elizabeth Gilbert. And so people for people who don't know her, she's a writer. She's amazing. She's one of my key mentors as a writer. But basically, I read her book, eat pray love in 2007. And God, I just felt I felt so seen and so supported and I'm not alone in the emotional challenges that I was having at the time. And I was profoundly supported by her being willing to be a voice in the way that she was by her being bravely self expressed. And so that she was the model for me to then take this on and go, wow. I was so benefited by her courageous self expression that I took that on and was like, okay, I believe this. Courageous self expression is an avenue to our highest contribution to others ourselves and the world. So it's not even about the outcome per se, but it's about being an action being in the proverbial arena. That's where that's the actual victory. So it's not about the outcome that the being in action at all is how I lead is how I influence how I impact. Now, as for evidence, gosh, there's a lot of it. It's my entire career. You mentioned it about I mentioned it in doing things that don't scale for sure. So skydiving, for example, the way that I engage skydiving years ago looks really different than the way that I engage it now. So for example, my high level competition year. So I competed in skydiving for a long time and those that part of my career sort of gave way into this. Now I'm a known name in skydiving and I'm being invited around the world to coach and connect with people and show up at events as a headlining professional skydiver and help them again.

My life is that when i was about seven years old j just turned seven. My dad decided to move the family from israel to new york because there were better career opportunities in new york city. And so i was an immigrant didn't speak the language and was placed in a religious jewish school. A sheva and i was not. I didn't come from a religious upbringing.

And it's a very strong signal to show that the government of china is reluctant to bail out the developer. While you know like with oh these the social and economic problems. What does prepare mean. How are they getting ready. For potential demise of the company. So be understand for sources the local governments. They have prepared. You know difference working words and like to prevent n. a. and rest of like public and gurry and author like public protests may coming together with the fo out of ever grant the same time. The local government officials have already talked to local level like property developers and state both state and private companies and to prepare to take over the local real estate projects of ever grant but the government officials also taught hold these companies that you know they should only stop in to handover like the aftermath at the last minute and at the same time you know like the officials the how like older to prepare different groups of accountants and legal experts to examine the finance like around everett grand operations in in different respective regions. Helped me understand why people why chinese citizens would be upset by this fall. Are they worried about the lack of housing stock. That might come about because this were they worried about the effects on the economy in their everyday lives because of this. Well i mean like. I think like like something. I serves different points and so for example like we talked to people and in this particular like uganda documentary like we reviewed dolefully officials from guam chinese promises. There telling the government officials to ensure migrant workers employed on evergreen projects to get their salaries and the other cases. We understand you know. There are lots of contractors and to to every grand projects and they also have to you know like government officials also trying to ensure that oh these people to get their money like own time or at least to get some of their money back and You know like over the past few weeks they're already lost solo protests in cases. You know the different projects of every grant that You know either migrant workers or contractors there were trying to get their portion of the money back and the problem for like ever grant is like because it's so big that it covers every single province of mainland china and It's a problem that you know to have like over eight hundred projects that is undergoing and you know like they have lots of hired migrant workers and contractors that have to help with the size of ever grand might remind people of leman brothers in companies that are too big to fail because of the social end financial consequences is this potentially the next lehman brothers. I understand there are lots of discussions but personally based on our reporting i don't think ever grant is another like lehman or lehman moment in china. Because the chinese government's top priority first of all is to ensure for grant apartments are viewed and delivered therefore to minimize the risk of social instability. Which is like the top priority for the communist party of china and the president of xi. Jinping himself keith. Zai is a senior correspondent based in singapore.

"This is laura. This is episode two hundred sixteen. Which is airing in late. September of twenty twenty one. I'm going to be interviewing dory clark. Who is the author of the book the long game which is about building a long-term thriving career in a world that's really obsessed with short term thinking doors longtime friend of mine. She's a great networker. I've met her through various things that she's done hosting various author dinners over the years gotten to know her as she's built her a fascinating book. I definitely recommend reading it but one of the things she talks about. Is you know when you achieve various career breakthroughs when you first look it. It's easy to say like. Oh it's either a great stroke of luck or else the person's just so talented and fabulous that. Of course this was going to happen. But when you look at it and analyze it. In retrospect it's often that the person had lots of what she calls at bats so none of us bats a thousand which means that if you want to get something out of the park you need to guarantee that you're getting more chances to get more pitches so that you can hit one of those and you know it's part of being in the right place right time but sometimes you're not in the right place at the right time for stuff that you could have gotten. But you just didn't. There's a big element of some subjectivity to all this. So let's let's talk about this. You've had some big breaks in your career. Let's analyze those. In in retrospect and talk about what's being in the right place at the right time but being prepared and having other things that could have happened to. Well i can think of two so the first you're gonna laugh but i just thought the fact that this podcast in a way could be considered that i mean. It was such wonderful timing that i had thought about doing a podcast at the same time. You were mulling over and that we were able to create this partnership. It wasn't something that was destined to be or anything but it was really really Serendipitous combination and. It wouldn't have happened if i hadn't been blogging for like eight million years in contact with you many times prior so i would say that would be the first and the second in my professional career. I mean i. I kinda always was interested in having some kind of leadership role but i wasn't sure exactly what that was going to be but i definitely am the kind of new put themselves out there. I gotomeeting tonight meet people. And when our hospital systems started talking about making a residency program. I guess i was just in the right place at the right time and was able to Start doing that. And then when the program director step down. I was able to step into his role so i mean there are different pass. That could have ended up. Doing it wasn't like i set out to do that specifically but to me that rings very true. It's like well. If you want to go in a certain direction you can have a lot of different options in as long as you put yourself out there. Probably one of those at bats is going to make sense and that i found that to be very true so i really like that idea. Yeah i mean during got a great section in her book about In the year twenty nineteen she tried a bunch of big goals all of which had a reasonable chance of happening like these were very specific things that she wanted to do and she had a path to getting their four out of five like crashed and burned. Take this is. This is a woman who has a huge course business as many great public speaking written several books like you don't think she's getting rejected for stuff and yet it's still happens. I promise i get rejected for stuff all the time like i submit stuff. That doesn't doesn't fly ahead. A funny thing happened A major publication which saw go nameless commissioned a piece and then after it was written commission for it rejected it. Just like you have to laugh. I mean what else can you do right. But i was thinking for my you know one of the big breaks getting to do a ted. For instance was a fantastic stroke of luck. And i don't think it's you know it's certainly not because i was just like destined fabulous speaker going to be lauded up to the top of the ten stages something. What happened is a couple of things that i you know. I was putting myself out there. a lot. like was speaking at a lot of different events. Had even something. That could basically be a ted talk audition because i had done the edison talks at the chicago ideas festival the year before and those are eighteen. Minute talks with your little face. Mike up on stage in jeans and a cool shirt i mean it's basically they are like a smaller version of the ted talk and had that video out there so it was like an audition for that more or less and so then the reason i got noticed for it as i had written article for the new york times about tracking my time for a year which i was trying to just because i thought it would be interesting. I could write about it for somewhere. I had no idea what it would lead to there. Were sort of different things. I thought maybe it would be a book. Maybe an article somewhere. Maybe i could produce audio series on. I don't know what was going to do. But i thought if i did the work for this. That would turn into something. I happen to get noticed by an editor at the times. Who asked me to write a piece about it. I did marvellously at the same time. The ted women conference for that year was gonna be about the theme of time and so they saw it. And then i had basically the audition tape that i could show them so it got to happen. But it's like you certainly can't like people have asked me then since then. Like how do i get to be a ted speaker. I'm like i have no idea like there is nothing i can tell you..

You are doing really something better than i am so it seems to me like a lot of the work in the thinking that you now do full-time that all started.

Certainly i can relate having had the similar experiences myself. It it's such a it can be such a blow to not just your financial future but also like your sense of self of like well. What i do. What am i good at one thing. That's important to note is for almost all of us. we don't necessarily turn on a dime. I mean now. In retrospect i realized that losing my job was one of the foundational elements that made me so keenly aware of the kind of hidden or unexpected risks that many of us are exposed to professionally but in the short term like in that moment all i wanted was to be a reporter. I just wanted to get another reporting job. Because that was what i cared about. That was. That was the path that i was on and so for about six months. I just tried desperately to get a job with another paper. And i didn't really make any changes so i think over time. We perhaps have a more dawning realization of how things are going to shake out. So i i wasn't Kind of the perfect specimen of immediately. Realizing that i needed to change my life change my risk profile when it came to my career but what i have learned and what i have thought about a lot in the pandemic is this a few years ago.

I know i have gotten accustomed to making short term decisions. The kind of decisions you make when you don't know what things are going to be like next month or next week or even tomorrow even without a global pandemic to shorten our time horizons thinking long term takes discipline. But here's the thing it pays off. We make decisions differently about everything from who to help to what conference to attend to what jobs to take. We are more clear. Dorey invites us today to re imagine how we approach things to slow down and think about what matters for us in a very long game. Here story i.

"Cathy heller. So cathy heller. Is somebody who i first encountered because she has podcast. A podcast is very good. It's call. don't keep your day job. Which i just really like her style. Basically she somebody who is a a songwriter singer and she used her skills and some creativity to create whole career where she was able to monetize that in a real way. She ended up writing a book about that and sharing the lessons of her podcast and she's had tons of good people line but more than that she's cool she's cool person and she's done really amazing things and so i think what what i like about her in this show. We're gonna talk about her book. That came out last year is sort of like how do you take your skills and talents and turn them into something business. How do you monetize them. And i think that's always really hard to do. And so she just makes it really clear. That's what i like about her. Work and another friend of the show dory clark has a great book entrepreneurial you that also is about this. When i read dory's book i had my i think i was like highlighting every page but these two thinkers they get into theralac. How can people. Yumi our friends or families. Just like figure out what we're good at and then get paid to be who we are which is kind of the ultimate right and so you're gonna love kathy the other thing. She's just cool she's she's very l. a.

I think that we live in a really interesting world where people voluntarily choose to spend most of their time doing things they don't like it's kind of fascinating because we can choose there an expansiveness to what's possible and we can create a new possibility that may be we don't have to save up our happiness for the weekends and retirement like maybe. There's a way for you to be a part of this thing. You love in a just a more creative way. Bats cathy.

Yeah yeah and you know this kind of there needs to be like an entrepreneurial leveling books so by the way if anybody who thinks it can take that project on like you should. Because it's needed was interesting as case case ruling on an entrepreneur like she never has been. She was not when i met her. She had a nine to five job as she actually really liked. And all those things. And the reason why i work so well is because she's not this idea entrepreneur like big idea all over the place map. She loves having a job to do and doing it. She's operations she's detail oriented all of the systems all the you know the accounting that all this jazz. It's unbelievably important. Parts of the business that frankly people like myself and you and most entrepreneurs face the business are either terrible and or hate doing. And so kate came in. She's like i. I'm not going to come up with my own ideas do mel thing but since i see you have established business because i was like eight months and things were picking up. Momentum was happening. she's like. I can come in and help. She's like i'm not gonna watch ever my own thing but i commit and help that so she was a right fit from day one because we weren't like to entrepreneurs like trying to do this together where it was like. It was me launching schmooze on fire hacking out. A little niche a little tiny niche getting a little momentum and bring cadence just like the amazing in her role. Which is you know doing all those things that i mentioned in meeting amazing at my role. Which is this having these interviews. You know doing the face to face the voice voice and having the big ideas and her being like those nine of nine of those ten or dumb ideas and like totally right now on the side of terrible idea. We're doing it. let's go so what i'm hearing you say is that she is a great second man like every life. She runs an amazing number two. Like what blows in your business whether you're pulling you know like what she's on salaries so she's getting paid. Leave me but i mean you know whether you're like it's your partner or somebody who found you know find to hire and to do that like all that jazz. That is only the bar. Y'all new one. Yeah totally love it. Okay so next question for you. And then i want to dig into the book because i think that this is really a cool concept so i in my research play won't have seen names now. I'll have one name. I have stayed okay. So i'm a lover of gary v. I just adore him. And i read someplace that you used to have a morning routine where you got up and one of the things that you did might have been listened to gary and then you have this. Also this this You know if. I could give myself advice to my younger self. It would have been jilin relax right like just allow more. So let's talk about this. This dynamic this dichotomy between the go hard the work ethic right leg. Just like grinded out. Which is gary. V style nike desert. With a great attitude. I happen to do it with a great attitude. There's a grinded out with your monkeying back attitude. And there's grinded out. Like i just love what i do. And i'm going to anger ryan and then there's the relax and allow approach so you're saying both things. How do you integrate. What's your what's your vision on that. What is your personal. Not your theoretical but like how. Do you actually do that for me. I love to just knows the grindstone in work hard. And i did that for the first few years of my business like many many many hours a day many hours a week and i made it happen and then i built a business that has systems in tools in a team. And now. I don't have to do that so now. I have times when i sit down. And i'm working harder and more efficiently than pretty much any other human being. I've ever met in a two hour block in a four hour block. You know sometimes if it's really crazy day maybe a six hour block literally. Am i ever gonna want or be aguirre. Shock wakes up in the morning and then he's grinds till midnight. You know six seven days a week in new york city with eight hundred and fifty people in his business doing this doing that just the life i wanna live. I'm in puerto. Rico among the caribbean i want to wake up. I wouldn't have a block of unbelievably hard work to do and get get it done. And then i'm done and i'm down by the pool. I'm walking my dog. I'm relaxing reading a book. I'm doing this. I'm doing that. Like that's what i want. That's what i need that so again. I'm all about going all in but it's a very efficient block of time now. Nine years in. I was you know very to get the business off the ground. It was grind central. Yeah there were some leverage that had to happen there. Okay got it. That makes a lotta sense. I loved that clarification okay. Let's dive into the book. Tell us you told us.

You're creating your content production plan creating your content production plan. After i finish that chapter. I had no idea it was going to be that long. I i looked at.
