"Welcome to the pick the brain podcasts where we pick the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health, self-improvement, productivity and kicking ass at life. Hi Jeremy Fisher, always alongside my co host Erin Falcon. Okay Aaron so today we are going to hear a little bit of a an interesting clip talking about how to navigate contradicting advice. Yeah, interesting. Yeah, it's from the better than yesterday Youtube Channel. We haven't really covered this topic, but since we hear so much advice on this show, I think it makes sense. We kinda talk about how to discern some of this right. Yeah, all right well. Let's go ahead and jump in. A. Have? You ever come across contradicting advice. You might have ready book by someone you admire and they say that. If you want similar results, you should do X.. At first. It makes a ton of sense, and it feels like a whole new world has opened in front of you. However sometime later you come across another piece of advice by someone else in a similar position, but the adviser is completely opposite to the previous advice you received. They say that you should avoid X. and Y. instead so now we have two different people both at a level want to achieve telling you different things, and it might confuse you as to why that is. For example, let's take a look at this contradicting advice. If you want to succeed, you have to work more and outworked everyone, but then you also have advised that goes something like this were class but work smart. What do you do? Do you work over sixty hours per week to beat your competition or do you work less and only focus on the most important part of your work both pieces of information can be useful. However, it depends on what you're taking, and what stage of life you're at if I tell someone Oh. Don't work hard. Take a break, but that person is homeless then it's bad advice. Instead he would benefit from. From trying to find more work, however telling someone WHO's working himself to the ground to arrest a little, that's good advice. He shouldn't take on additional work with benefit from taking a break. Even in my videos where I share different ideas. Some of them want apply to you for example. Let's say there are two different people watching one of my videos. One of them is Mike the other is Jane. Mike is an introverted guy. He likes to spend his time alone, so he rarely goes out whenever he gets an invite to a social event. He declines it because of his social anxiety because of that Mike often feels lonely since he barely has any friends..

"Welcome to the pick the brain podcasts where we pick the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health self-improvement productivity and kicking ass at life. Hi Jeremy Fisher always alongside. My Co host Erin Falcon Right. Right Aaron. Today we are going to hear from Viola Davis the award winning actress producer humanitarian. She's a powerful speaker. She gave a commencement speech back in two thousand nineteen before all the Corona Virus Madness Radio City Music Hall. Are you looking forward to this one? Oh the GRAVITAS. This was a good one. Let's go ahead and get started. History is not the past it is the President. We carry history with us. We are history in other words. You're a product of your environment. Now that term is usually relegated to people from low-income crime infested areas but why we are all a product of our environment. Your existence is an amalgamation of every triumph every hard one battle every woman who had an idea and massaged it and had the courage to use it to change the world every person who survived slavery Jim Crow when the black codes to the trail of tears wars and pass their dreams onto you of love. Hate you're also the product of the other of silence of apathy. A school built on stolen ground of women a parent grandparent and Sesto who suppress dreams and ideas who died with loss potential and horrific memories of sexual assault mental illness. Who didn't feel good enough or pretty enough or enough. Even your is part of your history and yet here you are privileged blessed to do what there are two roads that I see that people usually take but choice to think that you're pat is all about you and your success how high you can climb in your career in your status of soul call save the world approach you have a vision for the world and by God you will change it because your different. The perse road requires you to mistake your presence for the event to be in complete denial and the second requires you only to deny the really bad stuff it requires you to forget racism. Nazi color into Sexuality Poverty. But maybe I'll take the sexism because it pertains to me.

How consumed people are with their tiny white screens? And yet if you look at the players if you look at many of the most creative and productive people on the planet they're doing and working in such vastly different ways because if you want to achieve the results only five percent achieve you've got to think and produce and behave like only five percent of the people on the planet and the best people on the planet in terms of creativity and productivity are not spending their finest hours addicted to distraction.

"Welcome to the pick the brain podcasts where we pick the the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health self-improvement productivity and kicking ass at life. I'm Jeremy Fisher. Always alongside my co host Erin Falcon Falcon all right here. We are back. We are going to hear the second part of the Michael Bloomberg speech. The I kinda got started on You looking four to continuing this one. All right let's keep rocking and rolling in seventeen ninety four during presidents Washington second-term there was a faction joining up support for succession Washington recognized. The threat was what threat it posed and he was confident that it would not succeed. He wrote a letter and I quote it is not difficult by concealment of some facts and exaggeration of others to bias. A whelming mind at least for a while but he continued quote truth. We'll prevail when it's taken to bring it bring it to light end quote now. I know the phrase pains is taken probably just horrified every English major here as kids. We were taught that Washington never told ally but they never told us he had trouble with subject verb agreements. He's in fairness to George. Pains is taken as the way they spoke back then today. Washington would probably say take pains. Well maybe thi pain but Washington really Washington's point and Washington US motto our principles. I hope that all of you will take to heart. The truth will prevail. We're pains are taken to bring it to light and with truth comes strength. The pains that every generation taken to bring light are why succession didn't succeeds. Secession didn't succeed. In seventeen. Ninety four or eighteen sixty one the pains taken by abolitionists and suffragettes and civil rights marchers and marriage. Equality advocates. Brought America's court truce to light that all people are created equal and today today the necessity city of bringing pains of taking pains to bring truth to light is greater than ever because the tools for spreading lies. I'm more powerful than ever. Since the dawn of democracy there's always been those to paraphrase socrates who tried to make the weaker argument appear the stronger. And who care more about winning debates than being truthful in ancient Greece these were call sofas and they would have loved twitter can facebook social media has given rise to a new Golden Age of Sofa Street aided and abetted by blind partisanship the only way to overcome it. The the only way to lift our national de course out of the gutter is to he'd Washington's words and take pains to bring truth to light. Those pains pains are the burden of citizenship. In a democracy and a great education does not believe them it. Intensifies them this is especially a true. I believe for graduates university bearing the name Washington. All of you have been part of this institution's long tradition of Advocacy Chrissy and activism. Don't leave it behind carry with you and take it on this challenge to bring truth to light to help you get started. Let me offer some quick advice for dealing with modern day sofas who tried obscure and deny truth when when though when those in the political arena engage in name calling and other schoolyard chants and are trying to distract your attention away from the real issues and from their inability to address them or the unwillingness to put forward practical solutions. Don't be distracted when when they tolerate attacks on minority groups especially those who profess a faith that some fine threatening they are empowering. Those who traffic in hatred don't don't tolerate it when they denounced journalists as enemies of the state and declare any critical coverage to be fake canoes and dress up lies as alternative facts. They are trying to fool you into trusting only the news that comes from their mouths. Don't be fooled. Fooled when they exaggerate the risks we face raced from immigrants without talking about all the benefits they have brought to our country. They are preying on people's fears. Don't let them get away with Thick when they tell. Try to tell you who you can love or even who you can and be there either pandering for votes or playing. God Don't put up with it the promise you a free lunch or free college or free medical care or free income. Remember that bill always comes do you. Don't let them pass the buck when they prevent speakers from being heard by shouting them down and we're creating spaces we're different. Opinions are not permitted. They are trying to win arguments by bullying and censorship. Instead of facts and reason don't let them suppress free speech even even when you find that speech to be deplorable protecting their right to speak as the only way to protect your right to speak when people romance the past. Just remember something. My mother who live to one hundred and two told me the good old days when never that good and finally when leaders wrap themselves in the flag or the national anthem. And try to make you think that critics of your government don't love and respect our country real patriotism isn't about honoring entering symbols real. Patriotism is about bringing to light and when action is required standing up and taking action in other other words real patriotism is about taking Canes Surrey. Remember nothing else from today. Remember that the phrase or to make it even simpler just remember t pain graduates as Yuli this Great University. I hope you will take the pains pains that are necessary to preserve and extend our democracy take pains to understand the other side take pains to expose lies is take pains to reject scapegoating and xenophobia. Take pains not to fall for easy answers and take pains means to hold our leaders accountable for their words and their deeds. If you do that I have no doubt that truth and America will prevail and my generation will be able to say as we pass the leadership torch to yours the same words that Washington spoke with his loss breath breath so tonight have one last drink. Maybe a tease Dan steer own beat or the beat of the Ninja Turtle. Back Bagai and tomorrow get to work. The world needs you more than ever. Congratulations and good luck.

"Welcome to the pick the brain podcasts where we pick the the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health self-improvement productivity and kicking ass at life. Hi Jeremy Fisher always alongside my co host Erin Falcon Falcon all right Aaron. Today we are going to hear from Michael Blunt Perc All all this lip listeners. In bright before we hit record on this episode I was like where was his speech. Given again and Aaron Says Wash U. and and for a split second. I was thinking why wash me diet need a bath. Can you smell it over. The united went on in the same room anyway Yes this speech was delivered. Heard it at Washington University and He's got some interesting interesting thoughts for us to kind of the chat about this is going to be a two apart episode So that they were gonNA hear part one on the next episode. We're here partout looking for this one aired. I am all right. Let's see started in composing my rocks my remarks. I thought about the fact that Wash U. was originally named Eliot seminary after one of the founders Reverend William Elliott apparently he was uncomfortable naming things after himself so the board of trustees at the time change the name of the school to honor George Washington. Now I can appreciate what Reverend L. Elliott was thinking. I hate it when when people name things after themselves. We had a story about that recently on Bloomberg Television Bloomberg radio maybe it was in Bloomberg Bloomberg BusinessWeek or Bloomberg News in all seriousness. The board back then made an inspiring decision to choose Washington and anyone who thinks this school is in. DC or near Seattle clearly. Hasn't been paying attention. It seems fitting that an institution named for Washington it has played such an important role in presidential elections in recent decades. Wash U. is hosted a number of nationally televised debates including the last when you saw in two thousand sixteen hosting a presidential debate is an experience that few stool schools or students get. But I can't stand here and tell you provided a great civics lesson lesson. I wish I could. Instead of focusing on the critical issues facing the country. That debate was more about locker room. Talk and lock her up Lincoln Douglas. I think it's fair to say it was not and that brings me to the topic is your it would be easy to blame. The candidates for the moderate is for the poor quality of that debate. The but the problem runs runs much deeper. All across America at family gatherings in social settings and workplaces on college campuses and certainly on social media. Yeah Americans are losing the ability to conduct civil and productive dialogue with those who hold different political views and that has a profound effect profound implications for our ability to function as a society. After all when you can't talk with one another another you can't understand one another when we can't understand one another. We can't work together when we can't work together. We can't do anything at least it's not anything big and important. We face a lot of hard challenges in America today from climate change to gun violence to failing schools to the OPIOID epidemic and on campuses from the frightening trend towards racism sexism hatred antisemitism awesome and tolerance of Pop. The views and opinions to have any hope of overcoming these challenge. We have to start by reclaiming our civic dialogue from those who are debasing and degrading it and preventing us from getting things done in. All of you can help do that. No matter what your politics are and no matter. What Line of work you pursue later on? Uh maybe a passion science education or the arts or education or medicine or healthcare business. There is not a single issue that isn't affected by political debates. And there's not a single issue that isn't threatened by the breakdown in our civil discourse so if even if you hate hate politics and there's certainly plenty of good reasons to hate politics these days you will have to engage in political dialogue. If only survive Thanksgiving dinner with your crazy uncle and you will have to judge the arguments made by candidates if you're GonNa vote intelligently the question I hope you will ask yourself self on what basis you make those judgments it'd be actual to think that a degree. From one of America's top colleges disappeared you as a skill judge edge of political debates but unfortunately a recent study found that the smartest and most knowledgeable voters can actually be the worst judges and the reason is as they are most likely to make judgments based on which party is making the argument rather than on the argument itself. Now I know what you're thinking. I would never do that to say but it happens unconsciously all the time people have a tendency to assume the worst about those on the other other side of the aisle and when it comes to those on your side they tend to see no evil hear no evil and speak no evil and that's why that's why educated and knowledgeable people excuse these actions that are ethically wrong and defend statements events that are blatant lives. Of course some people say defending the indefensible is just politics as usual. But I don't accept that and I hope you won't either either one extreme partisanship replaces reason logic. Facts and data. The country suffers and special interests. Win I've seen it time and time again on issue after issue gun violence education public health and even one that threatens life as we know it climate Emma change yesterday. I stood with wash us next chance. Next chance to Andrew Martin and the President of Ohio State University to announce the Bloomberg philanthropies clamped apiece. Will help sponsor the first ever climate summit of Midwestern. University's next year right here on this campus. The we were joined by your mayor here lied light Cruzan because Saint Louis and Wash U.. Who has never has always been a real leader on climate change? Last year the city was one of the winners of a climate competition. My Foundation Ran. And we're now providing about two and a half million dollars of resources to help Saint Louis increase energy efficiency and expand solar power. A goal that Wash U. is helping the city to achieve thank you very much. Universities have a critical role to play in helping our country tackle. Roll this challenge and I want to thank everyone at Wash U.. Who has been part of that work? There really is no time to waste the problems driven by climate change ranger getting worse. And that's something you've seen right here during your lifetime. The recent Mississippi River floods affected life than say Saint Louis and they've devastated misstated farmers across the Midwest. Those types of natural disasters will continue to get more severe with climate change. According to the best scientific data aide. The trouble is too. Many politicians aren't interested in hard science. They're only interested in political science and winning the next election. So they ignore the data. They tried to cut funding for climate research because they know it will undermine their political argument sometimes even even tried to block public employees uttering the words climate change. You can't make this stuff up you just have to wonder. What are they trying to hide? And the only conclusion I've drawn is that they're either hiding their own ignorance or their own bad faith either way when government tries to gag scientists and senses our conclusions. Watch out and speak up. The America's progress depends on a dialogue. That treats these issues not as pawns in a political battle title but as problems to be solved ignoring data and facts and defending indefensible positions happens in both parties. But during your time. I'm on campus. It is enabled new levels of dishonesty and wrongdoing and is reached a point that I believe. No democracy can long sustain our democracy as the founding fathers undestood relies on more than just votes George Washington wrote in his farewell address address. Virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government end quote if the spring runs dry democracy where this away and the rights that we hold disappear..

"Welcome to the pick the brain podcasts where we pick the the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health self-improvement productivity and kicking ass at life. I'm Jeremy Fisher always alongside my co host Erin Falcon Falcon Right Aaron today. We're going to hear from ZIG. Ziglar cracks me up this love here. It is named Zig Ziglar regulars such a cool name Classic self-improvement guy. He's no longer with us but he's got so much good info and he is he is with Matthew mcconaughey. I know you said every time you think this is where Matthew Mocatta. He got his accent and you might not be wrong. I don't know but let's go ahead and jump in in the first seventy seven seconds of this presentation. I'll give you an idea wish you will agree is absolutely significant in the first twelve minutes. I will give you four concepts that if you will apply them we'll make a difference in your life as I present them to. You're going to be thinking to yourself. You know I like that. I'm going to remember it but the reality is when I finished this presentation virtually none one of you who are listening to this could give all four of them back to me and that's the reason we will encourage you to listen over and over and over because repetition is the mother of learning that makes it the father of action that means is the architect of accomplishment now. Let's start with this. How many of you have ever either heard me be four or else. This will be your first time good I could. I say your hands plays all right now. The second question is kind of tricky here so stay with me. How many of you honestly and sincerely believe as a matter of fact your totally convinced beyond any doubt there's something you can specifically do in in the next two weeks that would make your personal life your family life and Your Business Life all worse. May I say your hands in the live audience. Yes okay. You probably know the next question then there something you can't specifically do that will make all of them better. Okay nationalism listen to this tape. I hope you are responding to me as well. How many of you believe that the choice is yours. Can I see your hands. How many of you believe that every choice has has an end result. May I say you're in. How many have you believe making the right. Choices is your responsibility all right now in these seconds that we've been talking and it's actually a little less than seventy seven seconds. Here's what you have said whether you realize it or not you have just said that regardless of how good good or bad my past has been regardless of how good or bad my prayers an is there something. I can specifically do now that will make my future either better or worse and the choice is mine now folks that's profound. I'll always tell you what I've said something profound and the reason I do have found out a few years ago that an incredibly high percentage amount is do not recognize my profound statements when I make them unless I tell them. This is profound now. This is going to involve a lot of communication. We had a lady right here in Dallas win down to see her attorney about divorce and the lawyer said what's the problem and see started rambling. He said no said be specific and she said like how he said well. Do you have any grounds. She said Oh yes that is a matter of fact we got about. Forty acres right out here on the north end of town. He said No. That's not what I'm talking about. I said do you have a grudge. She's at Noble. We got really neat little carport. They're right on the side of the House and he said woman. We need to make like this personal issues at and he said well. Does that man ever beat you up. She said Oh no said I'm up every day. At least our two hours turns earns over and he said well the you accept responsibility for the difficult and she said he said well for example the you you ever wake up grouchy you. She said Oh no said I just let him get up on his own. You know whenever you well and he said well. Why do you want to divorce him. Dan and she said well the God jess can't communicate now. We're going to try add to make the communication such that. Is You listen to this tape. You will have no difficulty understanding exactly what I am talking about about. Everything is jealous for example for twenty four years of my life by choice. I weighed well over two hundred pounds now the reason I say by choices. This is simply because I have never accidentally eaten anything always a choice now. If I choose to eat too much then I have chosen and way too much you are where you are in many ways because of a series of choices that you have made nine the tenth of twelve children children. I asked my mom one time. I said mom why so many as he said well son. Where do you think I should have stopped well. It's for sure I didn't think after number nine now you can absolutely count on that. Let me say something that I think is very important. A few minutes ago you made the observation that the responsibility was yours to make the right choices now. The responsibility cares a lot of weight in Life Barbara Attachment two time Pulitzer Prize winner said the number one need. We have in our society. Today are are people who will accept responsibility and that is so tremendously true most people that I speak to think I'm in my early thirties is but actually I'm sixty eight now. What that means is. I was raised during the depression. My Dad died. When I was five years old. I was six of US too young to work small Mississippi Town Yeah Zoo city. We don't even have a village drunk. We share with a little community you know next to us but it's exciting about once a month to train comes through town and I know that doesn't sound like excitement trank there and then that puts it in in a different category it really does we used to hang on merit and of mainstream made sound familiar. Well Anyhow Small Mississippi town now. Let me let me say something. You know I can tease about my hometown for one very good reason. It's an amazing little town far American Medical Association's from Zoo city former president the American Bar Association from Yaser City former Presidents Southern Baptist Convention from you as city. The Formative Harper's magazine is from Yaser city former secretary of agriculture. I'll just from city. Chairman of the Republican Party is from Yezou city. Jerry clower is is from Yaser city. Now have no idea what happened to the other three but yeah you know I can. I can tease about my hometown because it has been so productive and we're GONNA be using humor throughout because you see people learn faster astor. They learn more and they remember longer but the major point I'm making is we can tease about that little town because of his productivity people Allah who are confident productive. They don't mind you kidding them along. Good clean kidding in human. I think very definitely has a place now. I don't need to tell you that is a tenth of twelve children six of them being too young to work harder than depression small Mississippi town. We had a tough time financially and the depression other other families had it tough too but I'm so grateful that for whatever reason I did not choose to notice what we did not have what what I did. Notice is what a lot of people did have in that little town see even in those times. I noticed some people wore nice clothes. They drove nice cars ars. They lived in Nice houses. They took. Nice trips may even had dinner out. Some of them even played golf at the country club. You know what I've noticed just in every decade of my life since and this is the message. I really want you to get right here. I've noticed that regardless of the economy. There's some people who don't pay any attention it all to it as you well know. The media has accurately predicted twenty seven of allies to recessions now. There are some some people who don't pay any attention to what other people are doing for example. I've noticed without exception that in some uh-huh Anniston says many instances when the economy is absolutely magnificent a bunch of folks going broke. I have noticed that in some instances where the economy is absolutely horrible. They're a bunch of folks getting rich. How many of you have noticed exactly the same thing now. This is major point number mature major born number. One is you do have a choice. You can do something now about your live making it a better or worse than the choices here number two is this. It is not what is is going on out there. You see a lot of that. You cannot change. There's nothing you can do about Bosnia. At this moment. Personally there is something about you and your future and that's that's what I want to be talking about. It's not what happens out there. That makes a difference in your life as what goes on between your own to ears now. That's what makes the difference. Neil Rose Danes have president of Harvard University and this number three. His mother is a part time waitress his father as a prison guard. See it's not who your Mama and your daddy might have been is not what they have done. The question is what kind of legacy will you leave. Leave your children and your grandchildren. It is what you do now a lot of times we encounter people who have departed on a regular basis. They have what we call. All the plum disease pl. Oem Polo me and they you know the problem. Basically with pity part is when the HAM is that very few people come and those who don't bring the president's now. Let me let me pull it out. They did a study of three hundred world class leaders now talking about Roosevelt and Churchill. I'm talking about Martin Luther King Mahatma Gandhi. I'm talking about Clara Barton and Helen Keller Mother Theresa World Class Leaders. Three hundred of them. Seventy seventy five percent of them were either raised in poverty are had been a children are s had some serious his physical impairment but you say point number four they understood. It's not what happens to you. It's how you handle what what happens to you that is going to make the difference.

"Welcome to the pick the brain podcasts where we pick the the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health self-improvement productivity and kicking ass at life. I'm jeremy fisher always alongside my co host erin falcon falcon alright air. Today we are going to hear from the c._e._o. Of apple tim cook and <hes> it's actually at stanford. It's funny. There's is a famous stanford address by former c._e._o. Of apple steve jobs. Would you and i've talked a lot about <hes> in previous episodes is this one is actually a more recent one like <hes> just a couple months ago. This was done <hes> from the current c._e._o. Tim cook at stanford university and he talks a little bit about steve jobs in this <hes> pretty good speech here you looking forward to this. One always inspired by tim cook well. Let's go ahead and jump in <hes> <music>. No matter where you go no matter what you do i know you will be ambitious. You wouldn't be here today if you aren't aw match that and bishen with humility humility a purpose that doesn't mean being tamer aim or being smaller being less than what you do. It's the opposite it's about serving something greater. The author madeleine liangel engel wrote. Humility is throwing oneself away incomplete concentration on something or someone else in other words. Whatever you do with your life be a builder. You don't have to start from scratch to build something monumental and conversely the best founders the ones whose creations last in whose reputations reputations grow rather than shrink with passing time they spend most of their time building piece by piece builder's comfortable in the belief that their life's work will one day be bigger than them bigger than any one person. They're mindful that its effects will spanned generations. That's not an accident in a way. It's the whole point in a few days. We will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the riots at stonewall wall win. The patrons of the stonewall inn showed up that night people of all races gay and transgender young and old and they had no idea what history had in store for them. It would have seen foolish to dream it when when the door was busted open by police it was not the knock of opportunity or the call of destiny. It was just another instance of the world telling them they ought to feel worthless for being different but the group gathered there felt something strengthen in them. I'm a conviction that they deserve something better than the shadows and better that oblivion ended if it wasn't going to be given then they were going to have to build it themselves. I was eight years years old and a thousand miles away. When stonewall happened there were no news alerts no way for photos to go viral no mechanism kick-me for a kid on the gulf coast to hear these unlikely heroes tell their stories greenwich village may as well have. I've been a different planet though i can tell you that the slurs and hatreds were the same what i would not know for a long time was what i owed to a group of people. I never knew in in a place. I'd never been yet. I will never stop being grateful for what they had. The courage change to build the graduates..

She's going to be talking about a very important topic, which is women's role in society. Let's get started. I am proud to be a woman and feminist. And this evening. I am extremely proud to stand before you on this significant day which serves as a reminder to all of us of how far we've come. But also mid-celebration reminder of the road ahead. I want to tell you a story that will sort of context to my being here, and my work with you and women when I was just eleven years old, I unknowingly and somehow accidentally became a female advocate. It was around the same time as the Beijing conference. So a little over twenty years ago where in my hometown of Los Angeles. A pivotal moment. Reshaped. My notion of what is possible. See I had been in school watching a TV show in elementary school. And this commercial came on with the tagline for this dishwashing liquid. And the tagline said women all over America are fighting. Greasy pots and pans. Two boys from my class said. Yeah, that's our women belong in the kitchen. I remember feeling shocked. And angry. And also just feeling so hurt it just wasn't right and something needed to be done. So I went home, and I told my dad what had happened, and he encouraged me to write letters. So I did to the most powerful people. I could think of now my eleven year old self worked out that if I really wanted someone to hear me. Well, then I should write a letter to the first lady so off I went scribbling away to our first lady at the time. Hillary clinton. I also put pen to paper. And I wrote a letter to my new source at the time, Linda Eller be who hosted a kids news program, and then to powerhouse attorney Gloria Allred because even at eleven I wanted to cover all my basis. Finally, I wrote to these soap manufacturer. And a few weeks went by and to my surprise. I received letters of encouragement from Hillary Clinton from Linda l'herbe and from Gloria Allred. It was amazing. The kids news show. They sent a camera crew to my home to cover the story. And it was roughly a month later when the soap manufacturer Procter and gamble changed. The commercial further ivory clear dishwashing liquid. They changed. It from women all over America are fighting. Greasy pots and pans to people all over America.
