It Z kind of a bumper sticker word That doesn't mean a whole lot just means a lot of changes is what it means and the devil's in the details. 51283605 90, let's give them some business. Biden administration is facing some resistance while dealing with legislation and the minimum wage Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, noting the push by some in his party to reduce the number of people eligible for direct Amulets payment took to Twitter, calling the idea unbelievable Working class people who got checks from Trump would not give them from Biden. Brilliant. This is the Congressional Budget Office released its report suggesting that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2025 would balloon. The deficit by $54 billion by 2031 would put 1.4 million Americans out of work with the CBO, adding young, less educated people would account for a disproportionate share of those reduction. Unemployment. Interesting. Yeah, the Biden administration still trying to pass or, you know a coping relief legislation totally $1.9 trillion, and people argue about the minimum wage. More than you know, you know the ideal thermostat temperature yesterday, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office gave both sides a little bit of ammunition. In this debate, the proponents seized on the CBO data. Phasing in a $15 minimum wage by the year, 2025 would lift 900,000 people out of poverty and boost the pay for 27 million workers. What the critics heard doubling the minimum wage would cost 1.4 million jobs and add $54 billion to the deficit. The CBL ran a similar study in 2019, predicting an increase in pay for 27 million and 1.3 million jobs would be lost in 1.3 million lifted out of poverty. So there you go. So against the backdrop of us this pandemic and you know this pandemic stricken economy president might have made a $15 an hour key component is proposed stimulus package. I'll have to.

I was thinking the worst I was thinking. You know this. This is going to be tough on business. This is going to put a lot of businesses out of business, or they're gonna have to lay off people. I'm starting it more of a feeling now and them and to talk to a couple of restaurant owners. It's just something restaurant owners, for example. It's something that a lot of them already doing that they're having to do. A lot of this talk of $15 an hour even though not required, is just, you know, caused a lot of employers to go ahead and do it way to get good employee. We've reached the point. That's what it takes to get a quality employees going to show up every day. And then you see the signs everywhere. Dairy queen, you name the fast food. They got to sign out. Help wanted 59 hours.

"You for inviting me saying up to fracture. She's a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Information and Library. Science. Well, the loneliness of quarantine and lockdowns has caused a rise in alcohol consumption. A study from the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism found that liquor consumption last year was up by 19% for adults between the ages of 30 and 59. The economic conditions brought on by the pandemic have also made it harder for people struggling with sobriety. All this could be causing an increase in severe liver disease here to talk about that is Dr Brian Lee. He's hepatology ist and liver transplant specialist with tech medicine at USC. Welcome Dr Lee. It's very nice to be here. Thank you. You Well, tell us what you're saying. You're seeing a rise in patients with with problems with their livers and alcohol addiction. That's right. You know, it's It's really been a trend that we've been seeing even before Kobe, but it's been particularly pronounced with Kobe that is people who are drinking more and come in with severe liver disease in the hospital. What is severe liver disease? What are the symptoms? Right s o liver disease. People think about somebody who was yellow and with a big belly and early cirrhosis, which is end stage liver disease. But the reality is that most people with cirrhosis don't have any symptoms at all. So one. I think it's important to recognize heavy alcohol use and to speak to that with your doctors feel describe the screen for liver disease, but in the hospital when somebody is very sick What we see is that people come in with alcoholic hepatitis, which is severe inflammation from alcohol use, or they have been compensated cirrhosis, meaning that they've developed you know a fluid in the belly or infection or bleeding from their liver disease. So if it doesn't if most people don't have symptoms, how do you know if you have it? It's important to be screened for it. So we have blood tests, imaging or biopsies to be able to tell if you have liver disease. And what is heavy drinking? What's the definition? So the actual definition is, you know, for drinks per day for women and then five drinks per day for men on that's the definition for heavy drinking. But what people don't know is that you can develop liver disease at much lower amounts. So they've been shown that women who drink more than one drink per day on average and two drinks per day for men can cause significant liver disease over time. Wow. Is there any safe level of alcohol consumption? So we used to think that if you were below the threshold meeting, you know, one drink per day for women and two drinks per day for men. But, you know, there's a recent, very large global study that showed that any amount of alcohol actually reduced reduced overall survival and life expectancy. So Many people would see that there isn't any safe level of alcohol consumption. Well, I mean, doesn't deliver regenerate itself cannot repair itself if it's been damaged by alcohol consumption. Yeah, Exactly. So delivers an incredible organ in that, after damage, is able to grow back and regenerate, so people who have had heavy drinking And they developed, you know, hepatitis. If they're able to stop drinking, the liver is able to recover. Now there comes a point, you know, particularly when you have cirrhosis that it might be too late. It's really important to recognize liver disease early, especially when it's from alcohol. What are you hearing from your patients who struggle with with alcohol during this pandemic? What are they saying to you? I think that Cove it has caused a lot of stress in many different ways, and we know now that Stress.

Whether it's from The stress of the virus itself for being lonely or bored at home or being divorced because of all the stress with Coben and then having that dream or losing your job, So we've seen all sorts of Different reasons to be stressed and anxious during Coben, and that's what I've been hearing time and time again from patients. And what are you advising? That they, Diogo? Um Are you saying you should not drink it all? Or are you advising moderation? Two people with liver disease, especially those who come into the hospital with liver disease. You know alcohol. It's really important that and I always say, not even a trump of alcohol ever again. Now That's easier said than done, and, you know, alcohol use disorders disease, But really somebody with liver disease really shouldn't be even having a drop of alcohol. And someone who may be on the verge of of it, who are maybe drinking too much? That's right. So I say that for somebody who's healthy from a liver perspective, you know, one drink per day for women two drinks per day for men shouldn't really cause significant liver disease. But those who already have liver disease, not even a drop. All right, Dr. Brian Lee. He's hepatology ist and liver transplant specialist with tech medicine at.

"The supply and vaccinated. Just be more delicious. Okay. Well, thank you. Wise words. Sociologist Zeynep to Fletcher. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for inviting me saying up to fetch a She's a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Information and Library Science. Well, the loneliness of quarantine and lockdowns has caused a rise in alcohol consumption. A study from the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism found that liquor consumption last year was up by 19% for adults between the ages of 30 and 59. The economic conditions brought on by the pandemic have also made it harder for people struggling with sobriety. All this could be causing an increase in severe liver disease here to talk about that is Dr Brian Lee. He's hepatology ist and liver transplant specialist with tech medicine at USC. Welcome Dr Lee. Hi. It's very nice to be here. Thank you. Thank you. Well, tell us what you're seeing. You're seeing a rise in patients with with problems with their livers and alcohol addiction. That's right. You know, it's It's really been a trend that we've been seeing even before Kobe, but it's been particularly pronounced with Kobe that is people who are drinking more and coming with severe liver disease in the hospital. What is severe liver disease? What are the symptoms? Right s o liver disease. People think about somebody who was yellow and with a big belly and early cirrhosis, which is end stage liver disease. But the reality is that most people with cirrhosis don't have any symptoms at all. So one. I think it's important to recognize heavy alcohol use and to speak to that with your doctors. She'll describe the screen for liver disease, but in the hospital when somebody is very sick What we see is that people come in with alcoholic hepatitis, which is severe inflammation from alcohol use, or they have been compensated cirrhosis, meaning that they've developed you know a fluid in the belly or infection or bleeding from their liver disease. So if it doesn't if most people don't have symptoms, how do you know if you have it? It's important to be screened for it. So we have blood tests, imaging or biopsies to be able to tell if you have liver disease. And what is heavy drinking? What's the definition? So the actual definition is, you know, four drinks per day for women and then five drinks per day for men on that's the definition for heavy drinking. But what people don't know is that you can develop liver disease at much lower amounts. So they've been shown that women who drink more than one drink per day on average and two drinks per day for men can cause significant liver disease over time. Wow. Is there any safe level of alcohol consumption? So we used to think that if you were below the threshold meeting, you know, one drink per day for women and the two drinks per day for men. But, you know, there's a recent, very large global study that showed that any amount of alcohol actually reduced reduced. Um Overall survival and life expectancy so many people would see that there isn't any safe level of alcohol consumption. Well, I mean, doesn't deliver regenerate itself cannot repair itself if it's been damaged by alcohol consumption. Yeah, Exactly. So delivers an incredible organ in that, after damage, is able to grow back and regenerate, so people who had had heavy drinking And they develop, you know, hepatitis. If they're able to stop drinking, the liver is able to recover. Now there comes a plane, you know, particularly when you have cirrhosis that it might be too late. It's really important to recognize liver disease early, especially when it's from alcohol. What are you hearing from your patients who struggle with with alcohol during this pandemic? What are they saying to you? I think that Cove it has caused a lot of stress in many different ways, and we know now that Stress. It's heavily linked to alcohol use, whether you start drinking or your drinking habits become worse. So you know, I've heard all sorts of stories, whether it's from the stress of the virus itself for being lonely or bored at home or being divorced because of all the stress with Coben and then having that dream or losing your job. So we've seen all sorts of different reasons to be stressed and anxious during covert, and that's what I've been hearing time and time again from patients. And what are you advising? That they Diogo? Um are you saying you should you should not drink it all? Or are you advising moderation? People with liver disease, especially those who come into the hospital with liver disease. You know alcohol. It's really important that and I always say, not even a trump of alcohol ever again. Now That's easier said than done, and, you know, alcohol use disorders disease, But really somebody with liver disease really shouldn't be even having a drop of alcohol.

"Let you go no that yet here to bring your daughter to cheer practice. So you're doing that okay. So let's let's talk about say. Somebody's been out for three years. They've been an associate. They finally got the courage to buy a practice. The practice is From a retiring doctor. That just turned seventy so no website at all working capital so they spend basically all of their borrowing capacity on purchasing the practice. So it's got no. It's got no online reputation. It's got no website. They have no facebook page. They have no instagram and This guy wants to ramp up their new patient Numbers per month so that they can increase increase a flow of traffic through there but also Grow the patient base and increase the production. So where would you start? Can we just put together like a quick marketing plan for this guy at was perfect? Exactly the same so fourth street family dentistry. Dr Brian Lee Fan. He's been in business now. Maybe four months and he actually went through a coach. Do Y- HIS STARTUP. Coaching on the things that he needed to be doing was betting agent season. So my my plan for him was he. Did all of this unsocial. He didn't need to invest. You know thousand dollars a month to have somebody social. That was on him. He's giving them ideas and content ideas and sharing with him. Like here's what you need to be doing And he's doing that so goofy. He's got the hunger and he's got more time than money right now. Probably Yeah Yeah. Yeah so The House the time to do it totally. He's doing all of his own social histories facebook and instagram. We all that helped him kind of guide him set that up. He's really fully owning and managing at himself And then we got his website up and running. It was a very minimal investment website. We just did a court pages at first and every month we're adding new pages to it so we have a deal with him where every month. We're adding three new pages to the services tab because he didn't get in how you know thousand dollars for Randy website or five thousand dollars or whatever it might be just a full-blown deal right. So how many should you work up to are you? Are you going to try to optimize to with him as you're adding these pages well while because I am you know? Seo's my favorite one of my favorite things. So I want him to have the amount of pages that he needs for the services that he specializes an I. It's not enough to go and add a ton of pages anymore and at a whole bunch of stuff to navigate. If you hate chief white name do not put that in navigation Yeah if you just WanNa do restorative and your client. Who Your clients for restorative than we build the pages around that and put a plan together. So that's kind of what we did for him. And then we're you know we're continuing to answer that You know crowns and bridges and things like that so So that was. The website started out very low budget. And it's just been a monthly maintenance plan that we have him on to get him up and running and get all the teams that were generally not now The website did come with a framework of Seo so we did all the Mana titles. Meta descriptions focus keywords submitted the site map to Google so your web designer should be doing that for you It's if you just want a website without any of that stuff you're not gonNA show up so we've been continually working with when we didn't start out with an SEO plan right away we just went right straight for Google Edwards And he was able to get new customers that way. And we we just call tracking on top of that so that we knew that the ads were simultaneously building the brand. Or did you have like a brand in mind with him How did that process work because you probably want to integrate the brand from his website to the socials etc? Yes I originally. He just wanted to do just a really simple logo but I was. I really wanted him to have a full brand identity when he launched so. We put a package together for him. It was affordable within his budget for Sinus for his outside building logo marks textures. Like the full lake. You know what I do for our brand identity kit. So it's like a full blown thing all the tools that you're gonNA need because you know if you start with just a logo and then you have to piece all these other things together. It's never going to really look like a full brand so I I want him to have all that stuff upfront. So that when he built a postcard or you know put out a Social Media Post. It was well while done looked very professional so that was one thing that I wasn't willing to flex along with him was just that we needed to do the brand identity kit and he was totally on board with that We did a really simple small website to start and then once he was open. We launched The Edwards campaign. He was doing his own social. So now we've integrated more services than we're doing working on his rankings and things like that but He stained busy and he's only wet for Munsan. Nice very nice okay. So what would you say You know what the minimum budget that you would need to allocate towards kind of something like this to a project like this the branding brand new website and really kind of allowing that particular doctor with a limited budget to kind of just wrap their hands around the social and do it themselves. What kind of budget is necessary on? Minimum I would say just just started up by for the branding and the website. I think we did like thirty five hundred for the website. We broke that into payments. So he did that over two or three months And then the branded entity kit with less than a thousand dollars that was just a one time cost for him And then we had him on a thousand dollars a month for PBC And then the rest of it was just like things like printing like business cards and we designed some postcards for him that was the one time one time investment and in his RENTA's locally and mailing them in house Brought to mention that so he was doing postcards and then he didn't add for him for his church bulletin too. So yeah so. There was some print elements mixed in there. She'll okay so it is possible. Yeah absolutely so okay I the here's another mistake that I've seen a lot of people make an we have we have. I hate to call them. Clients I I call a members but we have clients and Carmen that are That have made this mistake. And you know. Jodi is an awesome chair side assistant. She's on the younger end She Super Tech Savvy. She's on social all the time. I just made her my marketing director. So I mean it happens a lot right I mean I. I hear people do this all the time. They don't own anything about marketing. They have they give them. You know ten minutes ten extra minutes and ten extra hours a week to do this and they can't figure out why they're not getting any traction with their marketing. Yeah and I would say really like one in ten of those situations little workout. I have a client who did bring on it. You know had an in house Assistant move into marketing role in that worked but all the other cases that I worked with that has happened. are usually. They're at. They're coming to me again for coaching. So It really ends up being you know learning curve and there's a lot to it and so you just really just be you know. Are you willing to invest in their training? Are you willing to learn it yourself so that you can manage them properly And then Y- or is it worth it just to hire somebody that hasn't experienced? Yeah because you'll pay one way or the other whether or not whether or not. It's the painful. Oh this isn't working out. They have to Redo basically everything that Jodi tried to do And you're kind of you're kind of put back and you've you've missed out on that time. Tail Yeah I mean it's just it's one of those things where you Kinda do want somebody. That just isn't doing for fun. You know in somebody that maybe have made clear that they are interested in marketing. And maybe have an iphone it. That's fine but I mean I would really take a look at investing in some courses or training or Keeping a watchful eye on what they're doing And I always say lake for the girls that I hear on my team. I have to always know their job better than they do. So that I can coach them effectively right so I don't ever want to bring in somebody to social media if that client hasn't been my baby already you know what I mean and so it it. It does take a certain. There's if you just think about social media on the job for example you're a copywriter You're almost a graphic designer in some cases In your you have to. Tuck savvy enough to learn the strategy side of it which is like the hashtags and went to use. And when not to use the proper spacey and stuff like that so It's not rocket science but it does take some sort of education and skill level. I you know I just. I think it's possible. It could work but you do have to be really careful with that. Yeah for sure Lauren. Thank you for your time today. I would love it if you could give anybody. That's interested in your services. You basically do everything in marketing from from like the full coordination of a marketing strategy to individual campaigns.
