"Hey Everyone Danielle. Here I'm excited to get into this episode with our guest and curly will be back next week today Monica royer joins us on skimmed from the couch. She is the founder and CEO of Monica Andy An organic baby and children's clothing company. Monica had the idea to launch her company literally from the hospital after she gave birth. Who've with the mission of being the most thoughtful children's brand ever created and as we'll get into entrepreneurship definitely runs in her family Monica. Thank you for joining us today welcomed skin from the couch Danielle. Thank you so much for having me. I'm super excited to be here. Thank you. So I just WanNa say that like literally I think one of the days after I had told our team that I. Was Pregnant I had a call with Monica and I was like only slightly panicked about the fact that I was maybe a first time mom and really had no clue what I was doing and was like everyone keeps telling me I need a lay at and I don't even know what that is and Google that and Monica was like such a calming presence and literally knows this case inside a now. Thank you so much what we're is really excited to welcome people into Motherhood, in new, parenthood. So congratulations to you. Thank you. So let's start with an easy question scam your resume. To actually take back to what you can't see on link to in, which is that I came from a very hardworking family and so at the age of twelve, my mom was the manager, the ultrasound department at Good Samaritan. Hospital in Downers Grove and she's like you're gonNA start volunteering. So she went an air sign me up I was working at the front desk outpatient registration and that at fourteen she was like job permit time. So we went I started stocking the shelves at now very defunct retail store of which I. Can't even remember the name but work ethic with something was really important to my parents and so I spent all the time before I graduated from college with all of my summer jobs in the hospital. So physical therapy like you name it I worked all around the hospital when University of Illinois in Champaign Urbana graduated and I immediately got a job in the pharmaceutical industry. So I spent the first decade doing absolutely nothing related to what I'm currently doing but I worked at both Pfizer and Novartis for that decade which was. Very different from currently in that I launched. Monica. Nandy officially in July of twenty fourteen. So now this is my new baby and what I've been most recently working on what's something that we can't Google about you or look up on Lincoln I originally wanted to be a marine biologist. nine or ten old I would have told you wanted to be a marine biologist terrified of the ocean look at seeing but being in it. So that was sort of a non starter, the marine biology career, but I remained totally obsessed with like orcas. Great White Sharks in my very favorite place to travel as the San Juan islands outside of Seattle, marine, biologist, and pharmaceutical industry. This is all very, very interesting. So we're GONNA get into your family. And the support system that you've built around you. But I when I was talking to you a few weeks ago, you were talking about your mom and how her story had such an impact on you tell us about what it was like growing up in your house. What kind of expectations were there? Yeah. So my mom is an immigrant from India. She moved here from India's her dad was dying of Emphysema and some money home when she was nineteen. Years old as I have always a revered both of my parents Andy I always say that will never win the lottery because we did the first time by the parents that we got. So a massive amount of respect for both of them. But my mom, there was something about the family that she came from her family was very matriarchal in in a society in India that was much the opposite in. So my grandfather had nine children altogether the first. Five of which were girls as in India, like at that time most people wanted boys but my grandfather really cherish having girls in he educated each of them like they were boys and so when my mom came here, she came here on sheer well of the education that she had received and so education was of the utmost importance specifically for my mom mom was the only person in her family to marry outside of her Indian cultures or a dad is. Know his ancestors from European background and so my brother and I were so close growing up because we were so different from everybody else we were between world instead of fitting into any world in particular and so I think that unique experience really shaped the adults that we became.

"You downers Grove, Bretton Downers Grove had a question about credit cards, Can you Fill our listeners in on what Brett contacted you about my friend. So I got a call from breath during the week was a long time listener of the show, And he's heard me over the years say to never ever closed a credit card, but he was wondering how much of a hit he would take on his scores. If he closed the credit card he's had for two years, charging an annual fee, a monthly maintenance fee and 32 a half percent interest on unpaid balance. This is a good question, you know, and sometimes, David, when you're trying to build your credit, you need to take accounts like this just to get any type of credit on your report as quick as possible to help enhancer credit scores. So when Brian opened up this account two years ago, he had no opener active credit, which meant he had low. Fico scores are no score whatsoever. Since that time he's got in the car alone. Three other credit cards that are all in good standing, so his scores are pretty good now, and he really doesn't need this card anymore with all these ridiculous fees, So what I had him do before he closed the account. Was to apply for a new credit card from a company I sent him to, and to call his three existing credit card companies to request credit limits increase on each one of those so each one of those three accounts increases. Woman $500. He got approved for the new credit card for $1500. So right there, we're talking about $3000 in additional credit that's going to show up on his credit report. Then I had them closed this account that was charging him all his fees that only had $1000 limit. So following my advice gave him more credit than he had before. So even though he closed that account, his scores actually increased. So you can get around closing these credit cards. You know, there's a way to do everything so you don't hurt your credit score. It's amazing. For any questions on this type of situation or on your credit or credit scores. Call me at 6306.

What Happens When A President Is Impeached?
"My name is evey. Im seven years. Old I live in Downers Grove Illinois. I my question is what happens when presidents get impeached. Have you been hearing about impeachment. It's been in the news because the US President Donald Trump trump has been impeached. And there's been a lot of news and conversation about whether he did something so bad that he should no longer be the US president as we're putting this this podcast episode out the trial to decide that is still going on. We thought you might appreciate having a little bit. More of an understanding of what impeachment actually is is how it works and when it has happened before in. US history so we called up. Jessica Levinson to help us with this. She's a professor or a teacher. Sure of law at Loyola Law School in California so she teaches people how to become lawyers. She also focuses on politics and government in her work so she looks at the rules around elections and she looks at government ethics. How people should behave in government so she really knows what's going on when it comes to impeachment? Here's Eve these question again. What happens when presidents get impeached? So impeachment is basically a way of removing one of our leaders in government. We have a couple of ways to remove people from their jobs so they don't get to keep doing what they already do and one of them is through elections and we can choose to vote somebody out of their current position. We can choose to say you. Don't get to keep your job. Somebody else's going to do your job now and we could also also decide to use a process called impeachment which means that people will basically decide. You did something. That is really bad in really problematic attic and that it's so bad that we might have to remove you from your job Before the next vote before the next election and so so. That's that's basically. What impeachment is a way so that people don't get to keep doing their job because they did something pretty? Bad impeachment is a process that was written into into our Constitution. The constitution is the document that was created to lay out the fundamental rules of what the United States was going to be. Here's our other guests to help explain lane the history. I am candidacy Davis. The author of don't know much about history. Impeachment is simply a term that was adopted by the men who drafted and wrote the United States constitution in seventeen eighty seven and the word comes from an old English term for how to remove an official if he somehow did something that was wrong. Corrupt criminal unethical ethical or some other form of needing to be removed. And so this was an idea that was important to the founders of with the country because they were getting a great deal of power to one man in particular the president does they finally decided on it as well as other federal officials and is important to remember. That impeachment isn't only for president. It's also for other high-ranking federal officials officials who might have to be removed from office including federal judges because our presidential elections only happen every four years the men who wrote the US Constitution thought there needed to be away to remove the president in between elections. If he had done something so wrong that he shouldn't be president anymore even before for an election happened. And I'm saying he here instead of he and she or her because back in the seventeen hundreds the founders couldn't imagine that a president or a judge judge or a person in that kind of power would be a woman one of the most important things about a democracy where the people choose their leaders is just that that the people choose so it needs to be a really big deal for a president to be removed from office by other elected officials instead of by the voters in an the election so the writers of the Constitution created rules around win and how a president can be impeached. The House of Representatives can bring bring charges against the president when they think he has done something wrong if a majority more than half of the members of the house votes to bring those charges to trial then a president has been impeached. That has happened three times so far in. US history and that's what happened to the current president. Donald Trump Andrew through Johnson in eighteen sixty eight was the first president to be impeached. The second one was Bill Clinton in nineteen ninety eight so it was more than a hundred thirty years between the first two impeachments Bill Clinton Andrew. Johnson were not removed from office now. There was one other career impeachment in that time. Richard M Nixon who was the president elected in nineteen sixty eight resigned from the office in Nineteen eighteen seventy four because he was going to be impeached and it was quite certain that he was going to be removed from office because of what he had done. In what we now know as Watergate so impeachment is pretty rare but it also might be a little confusing because being impeached. Doesn't doesn't mean that you're no longer. The president. Being impeached is kind of like being accused of doing something wrong. Here's how Jessica Levinson describes it just because because that first group of people the House of Representatives decides to impeach you nothing actually happens to president it might be that it's really embarrassing Maybe the people who don't like what happened. Use this against you. Think about something that happens at school where somebody does something. Like take a marker that wasn't theirs if the teacher tells the whole class look at this person they took the marker that's really bad that's kind of like impeachment if nothing thing happens other than the teacher just saying that's really bad but it's really what happens next which is called a trial in the Senate where you might be able to lose your job. The trial in the Senate is kind of like if the teacher says. That's so bad that you don't get to use markers for the rest of the day and so there's this consequences to that so it's up to the Senate to hold a trial and if enough of them. Two thirds agree that the president should be removed only then then what a president have to step down and that has so far never happened in. US history

O. O. of citizen M. hotels he's from Amsterdam bodies in Washington right now what would you be in Washington it's very toxic environment Michael for a foreigner it's not that bad I guess okay we have not yet you you know with his you you already know we have a number of of a delightful hotels here we've got boutique hotels again big giant hotels we got everything in between we have cool hotel so you got to sell me this one now what is different about citizen Ammon why am I going to love it well again that I can tell you that we're not like everybody else Sumlin United sleep so well we are a hotel that I think what has been different for us from the very beginning is that we have focused our hotels really on the on the target audience where most hotels try to be something for everybody we created a hotel for frequent travelers those people that are too many nights on the road know exactly what they need from the hotel right so what we have done we have reduced all kind of features of hotels that they don't necessarily use and we have concentrated on those areas that would frustrate that not being you know in charge of their own timing all stations at check in check out you know features that are very important if you're traveling frequently you know what you want to get in get out everything in the room works you're calling downstairs because the wifi is wrong all of that what else what else to frequent travelers need what I think is that they know exactly what they want so really they want to have control by technology on most things what they've Mister Moses that time beach miles sold out we made a lot of things and give control to the gaps that friendly smile is right there when they walk in and we have long at all the employee's semi colon ambassadors because they really represent our brand and they're only cast their only focuses gas satisfaction and as soon as we have done that the days short of recieve you at their home and that it really gets a different feeling and one is in the hotel group we have been able to reach a ninety two and a half percent gas satisfaction which for our industry is is extremely high so if you look at that Fuhrman and PS from a napa motors for we are scoring yeah well let's do this sixty which is extremely high another TV is gonna work it's got to be great I got to have a great that integrate pillow any any issues there no I think that the use of a night of sleep you might as well have a good bet so we got that covered I think television yes is important but what is more important we always say you log on to the wife I automatically so that happened at our hotels as well so you just go on and that so we've taken those little irritations out an icon say that one or the other thing is terribly shocking but if you cumulate older little prostrations and you you got them covered that sort of the experience becomes much nicer now the most important feature I think is that we have squeeze the

"downers grove" Discussed on WGN Radio
"Coalition against downers Grove over its panhandling ordinance can you tell us a little bit about the law what it says and why you believe strongly that it violates the constitution yeah so the downers Grove ordinance actually mirrors the Illinois vehicle solicitation statute which prohibits people from asking for money donations for personal use and also rides and employments near roadways so it does not prohibit people from asking for money for donations to nonprofit organizations it does not prohibit people from asking for you to sign a political petition or fat mean there might be any other number of things that somebody wants to ask you by the side of the street and some of those might be very unpleasant but they're all legal in less you're asking for cash donation for personal use or ride or a job and what's the slippery slope here because I know that you know in with these kinds of organization you work for an organization that protects the homeless and what is the slope that you're worried about that if these kinds of ordinances are are brought in and they're gonna cap top what what is your concern for your the people that you advocate for right well I just think it's a very basic human issue I mean think about what it means for a democratic in a free society to say that it is illegal for one person to ask another person for help it's not only homeless people that panhandle any of us might find ourselves in a situation where we might need to ask for a ride or for a few dollars I know it it happened to me in my use and so it's it's just really pretty scary to to have any laws that that regulate the content of people's speech and that's what you know that's what the the first amendment is all about and I'm going to read to you from some of the textures and I knew that these would come because I was discussing this with some of my people in in my environment and that I got the same very same questions I feel no sympathy for baking these are adults and the no there are homeless people who make a choice to leave us to live on the streets they're not asking for help they are harassing Chicago we have to say for people I'm sure you hear this kind of stuff all the time well how do you respond to that well it's you know having spent about five years working with people who live on the street I don't feel that it's a choice I have met very very few people in that time who are on the street by choice there is a drastic shortage of housing resources in the city of Chicago for people who can't pay market rate housing so that's one thing okay and so how many homeless do we have in Chicago roughly speaking so our agency recently were released a report that puts the number at over eighty thousand eighty thousand people is a Chicago or Chicago area as well as Chicago is that per capita similar to other cities just generally speaking I actually don't yeah yeah so in the end generally speaking what what are the main reasons for homelessness is it is it mental illness is that alcoholism because again another texter said all they don't use it for food they use it for alcohol and drugs and therefore you shouldn't be giving them anything what do you say to that and and and what are the reasons for homelessness generally speaking so I think those are stereotypes about people experiencing homelessness this idea that there in a predominantly people with mental health and substance abuse issues certainly those issues do affect poor people just as they affect people in other sectors of society but you know the visible homeless person that you are a lot of the stereo types are links to really does not represent the majority of homeless people I mean you know in the city of Chicago many many families are are homeless many many families are living doubled up with other families and that's also a form of homelessness when the primary reason is because housing is unaffordable and unavailable and what kinds of what kinds of its resources are available for homeless people I mean I think there are people who believe that every night a homeless person can go to a shelter and find a bed to sleep in is that not the case that is not the case on any given night in the city of Chicago the city funded shelters may either be fall or may have you know ten or less bads that's just and in the in the winter you know it's very typical that they will all be actually full and that is you know provided that you could actually get to them and that they would accept you right so even those available beds might be an S. facility that's for all manner for all women are for only women with children or things like that so certainly there are people who are not gonna fit those eligibility criteria there is one shelter in the city of Chicago that almost always has beds and it is a place that is not accessible for people with disabilities of various either physical disabilities or mental health disabilities and it's also a place where you are required to engage in religious sect devotees while you're there it's been known to be dangerous and scary so there's a lot of people that don't want to stay there and and actually feel safer being either outside or on you know in some other situation which is also likely scary so the options are not great Diane texas' nursing homes are available for homelessness is that true never had even thought that I actually don't know how true that is I know that there are some disabled people who are pushed into nursing homes because they are homeless and don't have other options and I know that a lot of people find that offensive because they are not so sick that they need to be in a nursing home they are really just poor and I need a bed to sleep time just one final question before wrap this up of what you know homelessness is something I I take it that you're in this as a lawyer to not make a living for yourself but to help people out who are less fortunate which is a good thing to do what can people do if people want to help the homeless situation what can they do whether it's donating money or do taking some action what what would you suggest well one thing I would say is that we are fighting to increase the real estate transfer tax in the city of Chicago for the specific purpose of raising millions of dollars for homelessness so if you're interested in supporting that campaign you could call your alderman it's called the bring Chicago home campaign but also you know certainly you can support nonprofit organizations that do great work there are many good shelters in the city of Chicago there always struggling there is you know there's many organizations that they do great work and also I feel like you know if you feel compelled to give money to a panhandler you should feel comfortable in doing that because that's that's what human beings do we we we show compassion we share with each other Diane o'connell thank you so much dial Connell's attorney for the Chicago coalition for the homeless thank you for coming and insured thank you so much for having me listening to the Karen county show on WGN ladies and gentleman citizens of.

Slavery slightly was going to end his already started ending and other parts of the world. It was going, and it's Ron Paul pointed out we were the only country that try to win other people have as well Thomas, Lorenzo, we're the only country that fought a war supposedly over it. I think they were much more sensible ways that killing a quarter of the population of the south rinsed of doing so thanks for the call Brian. And if if it was about the right to succeed. I mean, he his strong point. Shirley wasn't diplomacy. Because you would think you would you would have thought he would have tried harder to sort of negotiate a settlement with the confederacy. Don't think it would not negotiate at all. I I ride quite a bit about that as well. It was no flexibility on his part. You had you had the the south Kozly and one of the most shameful parts of the entire conflict with the fact that the south was constantly trying to swap prisoners with the north because they couldn't feed their prisoners. They couldn't see themselves with the the scorched earth policy of Sherman and the other generals where they were burning the crops and stealing and plundering from the population raping, the women they had no they had no food for themselves. Let alone their prisoners, they even General Grant and under Lincoln, even turn down the south proposal simply to give northern printers back because we as a humanitarian gesture they would not do it. And I think that's shameful for that. And they ended up hanging. The commandant words of NFL go prison, which was a war crime. If ever there was one the guy was by all accounts. A decent person. They had prisons in the north as well as south, and he tried his best as he could didn't have food to feed them, and they were trying to join the prisoner. So, but again, that's the kind of history Americans don't know, Walt is in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Good morning. Walt. Welcome to coast to coast AM by Richard. Once again psyche for your beauty voice Richard prefect that well. Thank you. Richard. I just want to say that I love Mr. Jeffreys for what he said about the second amendment. Richard. It was straight. What Mr. Jeffrey said, the John F Kennedy was a life member of the National Rifle Association. So that just goes to show how far the democrat party has sunk. All right. Well, I'm sure there are a lot of Democrats that are lifelong members of our even today. You know, I think it it it it. It's kind of a non-partisan thing. Really? Did you have anything else Walt that you wanted to ask on? Well, I I love John F. Kennedy was the last democrat I love, but he was ambiguous on the racial issue. It's a little known fact that he would not let Sammy Davis junior at ten nineteen sixty not girl, Bobby because Sammy had married my brick. I of course, she was the lily white Swedish model actress, and of course, that was considered quite scandalous in nineteen sixty so they snubbed Sammy Davis junior. So that's the only thing that's sorta punishes the John F Kennedy in my ice. Let's get don's take on that. Is that how you see a Kennedy was up too much? I don't know about John Kennedy's. He's my hero too. But I had not heard that I didn't realize he certainly Frank Sinatra and the rat Packer big supporters of Kennedy early on. I did not know that he uh didn't allow Davis junior. I and I feel I feel he's accurate. He certainly was married to I don't know if he's married by having a fair with my bread and kinda scandalous, and that's that's again. That's how things have changed over because it was interracial any even though they both were famous fifty years ago that that kind of thing was frowned upon and then considered scandal. So it's certainly possible that the that he wouldn't have been invited because of that. So I'm sending the callers, correct? I like well, thank you for the call berries in rock hill. South carolina. Barry, good morning. Welcome to goes to coast. Hello, richard. I tell you what buddy keep up the great bumper music. You're doing it tonight. Thank you, my friend. Hey, listen.

Thank you, ending three one nine eight one seventy two hundred do we have any millennials on this show. Do we have any millennials Andy? It's definitely not us either way. I thought about this driving in because I wanted to talk about this millennial survey because Ashley who's producing today is a millennial. Right. You're considering a millennial. You're I'm playing a senior in college. Yes. There that doesn't flip because you think or twenty seven I have no idea. No, that's that's that's older. I'm close. All right. We'll get to that in a second. But Andy thirty years ago. Mhm? We graduated nineteen eighty nine for your seniors in high that Bradley on. Who's driving? And I'm like what happened where did the time? Go a kidney eighth grade. Now thirty years ago. I was probably just walking in thirty years. Yeah. Because this was would've been our senior years.

Did that every Sunday? It's nice. Millennials being millennial. Ashley, are you paying attention right now. Are you paying attention? Okay. No, how much would it take for you? How much could how much would it take for you to make a year to be happy? According to millennials. So let me ask you first. I don't know maybe like hundred fifty thousand one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year. Would make you happy static. What do you think? Andy. I would think it would be much lower millennial. I would think they were probably was said something like this seventies. Millennials say they need a salary of eighty thousand dollars a year to feel happy. Eighty grand a year. What's your cut off? I'd be happy to be happy eighty grand hundred grand two hundred three hundred probably three hundred now. Yeah. Think about it. He wouldn't have to worry about anything. If you're making three hundred grand a year to be much more charitable. Yes. You could which makes you feel good in intern. You'd have a better life. I was talking about that the other day because I was at dinner, and there are two small kids sitting next to me. Upscale restaurant. And it was you know, whatever the kids were their kids. Right. But you know, I would have thought if I was at the parents. And if I had the cash, I would like bought dinner about drinks for the people that were sitting next to because of the disturbance that will it's funny. You never think about that. We had a party of twenty people last night and ten were kids. I'm sorry. There was more. There was twelve twelve kids and the kids set at their own table. And the parents said another Tamil, and they went crazy. Going nuts. Jim freedom. Right. And they're all great beer and all hopped up on sugar, but they put us in the corner. So the kids were in the corner, and then the parents table as the buffer and then the rest of the restaurant, but I don't think about that. You know, that's true. But I I only have one kid and he's never been unruly at restaurants. That's good. That's good for you. But I can see your point so one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year. Ashley that would make you happy as a millennial. I guess. By the way, I looked it up. It's anyone born between nineteen eighty two and two thousand four is a millennial. So I'm definitely a millennial. When were you born nineteen ninety seven I had to think about. Oh, jeez. Oh, wow. You're born in ninety seven at least I'm in the ninety or. Yeah. That's true.

January one two thousand nineteen nice. Yes. It's very very nice. How much a year to make you happy? How much a year how much your salary year? What's comfortable for you? Where you don't have to think about anything. Ashley said one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year because millennials say they need a salary of eighty k eighty k eighty Kennington happy. Yeah. I would go there. Maybe a eighty to one hundred K I would be about a buck twenty Joyce. Oh overwhelm. You would love it. You don't have to worry about car payments car payments. You could put money away. Yes. You could save money for retirement, right, rainy days, and it my age. That's what I'm looking. Yes, any resolutions? Did you talk about this about him yesterday where they again, give money better money management? Yeah. I think we all need to work on that. And I found I think I mentioned this Andy you a couple of weeks ago, we were talking about workouts and so forth. I read something that everybody else. But me seemed to know about in terms of a workout where you can do it in ten twenty minute intervals you can do it at your own pace where you'd be maybe on a treadmill or stationary bike moving along at a regular pace. And then for maybe sixty seconds, really step it up sprint sprint, rain, intense travel down you didn't know about them, dropdown recover. Yeah. Get your heart rate up and then down I've been a lifelong couch potato. It's time to start have you ever taken a class and exercise class? Yes. I have I took a yoga class before he started working. So I'll get well yoga's the different animal if you take a spinning class or any type of cross training class. That's exactly what they do. They get your heart rate up. And then you do that for a minute. And then it brings it down. So you're up and down up and down in the end. They try to bring it up, and then you leave class. So you're still burning fat right in right? So this is what I'm going to try to do like I said yesterday PDF, I could lose ten pounds and keep it off. Right. I'd be happy twenty. I'd be just delighted a twentieth. Someone just texted in rich from Brookefield wants to know if you actually drove dean Richardson show.

Those guys sit around they were doing a question and answer. Thank you on stage. And I'm sure dean loved it. He had to get in his car and driving our home down. Right. By the way, when I was on the Kennedy this morning, maybe two cars when I pulled off on Ohio downtown packed which are dry was nuts this morning. I mean, easy four twenty in the morning downtown Pap, I know people are leaving the bars. But it was just crazy. Did you have snow any problems wet stuff driving slippery a little bit? How about you somewhat? Nothing. Terrible. Okay. Driven a lot worse. I ate a moment in weather like this. I say about five years ago, I was driving to work at four in the morning, and I was on the Kennedy, and I was heading south, and I was driving over division, and I complete. Did a three sixty hit that black ice. There was nobody around. Thank god. Yeah. And for some reason, I ended up going straight at the end of the three sixty and just kept going. I'm like, oh my God. What just happened? You have a guardian angel. Wow. It was one of those moments in today kind of felt like that. So I was you know, watching my speed because when you go over those bridges, you don't know about the black is no you don't. We're very fortunate. They not only spinning around and no one there.
