Even Paris Jackson Was a Victim of the Liberal 'Apology Culture'
"Speaking of bullshit apologies, even Paris Jackson. Had to come up with a whole bunch of I'm sorry when she appeared on the cover of Harper's bazaar Singapore. Because some fans and some outlets out there criticized it for helping promote an organization in a country where being queer is a punishable event. And I'm sure you're all read this magazine because it's a major magazine. So, you know, this is on Twitter and this is a big story around the Internet. So I'm sure everybody read the article. In the very popular with the millions of subscribers gay star news. Okay. What was written in gay star news, which maybe is a publication that rolls on the street during a windy night in West Hollywood. They publish in it a fucking torial calling Jackson's decision to appear on the cover hypocritical. And then, you know what you did? Michael Jackson's daughter deleted her Instagram post showing the cover, and she made an official statement on Twitter. I didn't know. I'm sorry. I was grateful for the opportunity, but I'll delete the post now. I don't want to be hypocritical or hurt anybody. And my support for my fellow LGBTQ RST UV, WX why the fuck am I reading this list? first before my love for fashion and gratitude for this opportunity. Shut the fuck up,
Senate Passes the Inflation Reduction Act
"They did it. Joe Biden, the Senate Democrats spent another $700 billion over the weekend. Now the house will have to confirm that on Friday and they will. They'll pass it. And so Joe Biden's record after two years is pretty pretty straightforward. What they're running on. He's doubled the size of the IRS as of yesterday. They spent 80 billion of that 700 billion on the IRS. I know it's unbelievable. That's what they did. Basically doubled the size of the IRS. They spent three and a half trillion total over two years. Three and a half trillion. That was not needed because COVID had been recovered from that have been taken care of by in a bipartisan fashion by the last two congresses under the last two budgets under president Trump. But they spent 1.9 on the American recovery act that was unnecessary. 1.5 trillion, 1.9 trillion. 550 billion in infrastructure, 280 billion on the chips act, and 700 billion this weekend. So are you better off with a IRS that's double the size of what it was 87,000 new IRS agents in 9.1% inflation. Are you better off with Joe Biden and the Democrats running everything?
Breaking Down the Reason for the Britney Griner Conviction
"Brittany griner, her excuse was that she has medical marijuana and she decided or she accidentally left the marijuana in a bag because she was packing in an expedited fashion. She was rushing. And any man in America knows. Let me just explain it like this. Don't get mad at me. Women, they have a whole bunch of stuff to pack and they get crazy when they pack in all kinds of stuff. I can see how a woman can forget a vape pen or whatever in a luggage. However, Brittany griner is a man, or at least in her relationship she looked like the man in the other girl looked like a girl. So her masculinity makes me believe that she aligns more with men and you know men we ain't packing Harley anything. It's no way we gonna accidentally put a pen in there because we only got 5 shirts in three underwear. And we gone for a whole month. Women got makeup in there. And if they time them up correctly, they gotta put them things in there. And so you got a whole bunch of stuff that women are packing. But Brittany griner, she dressed like a dude. She acted like a dude. She's probably not packing that much stuff.
'Animal Algorithms: Evolution and the Mysterious Origin of Ingenious'
"Many things in the book that amazed me. You talk about the Arctic turn of obviously a bird that engages in long distance navigation, manx, sheer waters. Some of the names of these birds are beautiful manx. Shear waters are sure birds that migrate between the east coast of South America and several small islands near Wales and Scotland where they breed and raise their young. Besides the long distance, there are several other notable aspects of sheer water migration. One is that the adults initiate their return flight to South America before the juvenile birds depart. So the young birds must make the journey without any guidance from the adults. This is not uncommon in bird migration and it means that the information defining the navigation route must be pre programmed. Again, that is just astonishing to me. Absolutely astonishing. Yeah, and that's one of the most amazing things about this that we really don't understand completely how this information is actually programmed into these animals, again, it is programmed, so that means presumably that means it's fast down genetically. So it must reside in the genome in some fashion, and then when the next generation of birds are born, they already know what direction to fly to their migration. And everything about that is hard to explain because it involves first of all information. What are the information you can come from? How does it get into the genome if that's where it's located? And then it's programmed into their brains.
Arrest of Saudi for lying to FBI shows kingdom’s reach in US
"It began with a message that appeared on Saudi critic and advocate of women's rights Donna el Mayo's phone from an anonymous Instagram account a promise to help her crush a $5 million lawsuit She faced from a pro government Saudi fashion model But the mystery Texas said she had to meet him in person It was December 2019 a year after the slaying of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and Mao feared being kidnapped and taken back to the kingdom like others Now she's glad she didn't go U.S. federal prosecutors have arrested the man behind the message 42 year old Ibrahim Al Hussein on charges of lying to federal officers about using the fake account to harass and threaten saadi critics like move living in the U.S. and Canada I'm Charles De
Steve Moore: The New Democrats Are Too Incompetent to Bribe
"That there is a conventional wisdom. There's not conventional. There is a talking point that once Illinois hits rock bottom, it reverse course, I don't think that's the case anymore. It just seems as if there is just kind of an enjoyment of misery between the Democrats there. As long as they're in charge, they don't care. You know, I've kind of glad for having this conversation because I've lived lived in Chicago during the 60s and 70s. I went to the University of Illinois that since then I've lived in the swamp and watch, but I still have all my family in Chicago. And the whole, one of the big parts of the history of Chicago is Richard Daley. He was a Democrat, he was, you know, there was a lot of hanky panky going in Chicago, but they called Chicago, the city that works. That's a nice way to sweat. You had to pay off to get stuff done. In Chicago worked. And that's the old fashioned Democrat, right? Now, the new Democrats, nothing works. That's right. And the whole thing kind of just, you know, I think that's so insightful. I've said for the longest time, I will take the most corrupt back dealing Democrat in a second over an ideologue. I mean, okay, fine, you're paying off some developers, some contractor, you know, you have some, I guess, some it's just a cost to do in business. Yeah, it's built into it, but you know, it's kind of this old thing back in the, there's a true story. I mean, mayor Daley got John F. Kennedy elected through widespread voter fraud. That's proven. And so mayor Daley senior, not junior. And there's kind of this story where he asked all this money from for Jack Kennedy for federal aid to rebuild Chicago and he asked for something like $25 million to put in a transit system and all this. And he's like, hey, this project is only going to cost us 10 million. We'll be able to divide the 15 amongst all of us. And he said, we can get it done quickly. And actually, you look at today, it would cost adjusted for inflation ten times that. And so the new saying is that the new Democrats are just too incompetent to even bribe. Yeah, exactly. No, I've always said ideological a misguided ideologies far more dangerous than graphic corruption.
Layah Heilpern: The Digital Space Now Has Value
"But how do you respond to critics who say with Bitcoin specifically I get the other crypto as some of them are just pumping down some But how do you respond to Bitcoin people like Peter Schiff who say you're not really buying anything It's not backed by anything What do you say to that Yeah it's an interesting idea But I think what I say to that is it's such an old fashioned mindset unfortunately And I can understand why somebody likes Peter Schiff can't understand that because they don't think it's anything because they can't so that you see it It's not something which is physically tangible right But you and I connected through social media through Twitter that's not something physically tangible but ultimately this digital space now suddenly has values So I think we can all agree that we are ultimately moving forward into a digital space whether it's the metaverse whether it's more social media is going we are inevitably going that way And so we need a form of money which adopts to that new world that we're moving into It is inevitable And what I would say Bitcoin is backed by is the fundamental value is backed by the physical map and code that supports the network You have minor physical miners tangible things all over the world whether it's Kazakhstan Russia Texas the United Kingdom wherever it is You have difficult machinery which literally confirms every single transaction that's ever happened And so it's like saying to your grandparent you know I tried to explain to my grandparents what do I do Oh you know I do social media stuff They don't get that because to them social media what is that Is this irrelevant nonexistent world And so it doesn't surprise me that Peter doesn't get it But Peter did just tweet something actually recently about how his bank and his funds have been frozen or something like that and he can't move his money around and what would help him not gold but Bitcoin So there's the fundamental value
The Supreme Court Has One Job: Interpreting the Constitution
"Okay, so again, let's review folks. Their gutless. They admit sort of that, yeah, roe V wade is made up. And I think I want people to understand John how extraordinary that is because the Supreme Court has one job. It's to interpret the constitution in 73, they misinterpret the constitution, deliberately, which is an amazing thing. It's a power. Yeah, it's a coup d'etat by 5 lawyers as justice Scalia once said that the Democrats gave up on a menu with us too. The old fashioned way, like the equal rights amendment because it's hard and they'll fail. So they just decided to have the Supreme Court do it and be like a sitting constitutional convention, 5 guys ruling the country by decree. If you're not comfortable with that, you should be happy with the overturning of roe V wade. Regardless of how you feel about killing children for sexual convenience, even if you're for that. You should be happy that 5 guys are not running the country like it's a mafia family.
Why the Constitution Means What It Says
"We have a provably constitutionally illiterate country, right? We have people who just don't know what the constitution says and don't know how it works. The basics to wit. If there is something that is not in the constitution, it goes to the states. Period. Roe V wade was fictitiously found in 1973 by an activist court. That was a phony right that was fashioned out of whole cloth, and we've lived under that fiction for a stinking half century. That has been corrected thanks be to God. That has been corrected. I celebrate that. Not just as a conservative or a pro lifer or whatever I am. But as an American, I want rulings to reflect what the constitution actually says. And for three rulings inside of a week's time, we've had Supreme Court Supreme Court majorities who have delivered us the shocking news that the constitution actually means what it says.
Human Relationships Still Matter!
"Human relations still matter. No matter how technologically it lanced our worlds could be coming no matter how technologically savvy we are becoming, you can't separate out the man from the machine. And that goes for programming, it goes from social media. You can't separate it out. This is also one of the concerns and I wanted to start with this one because I see this so often if the machine is being substituted for social interaction, we see this in social media, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, all of these YouTube platforms, Roman platforms, all of them. All are good things when used in proper perspective. But what we're seeing right now and probably wouldn't envision from this movie top that matter was that when you remove the man from the machine, when you remove the human element out of the social interactions, then people will begin to believe that they're their own best, they're their own best advisers, their own best interests, and that they know best because they're never challenged. Because if you can put something out there on the Internet and you can top a comment or a tweet and you can send it out an anonymous fashion, you're not able to receive the instant feedback like I grew up when I was growing up in high school. If you had a problem with somebody, you had to tell them you had a problem with them. Otherwise, nobody would ever know. You couldn't go to some anonymous electric site, electronic site in tweet, I hate or I'm mad at so and so. No, you had to actually get front and that's where human interaction skills were lacking in a leadership lesson. If you want to hear it today, the best leadership interaction I can give you is the demand. You can't separate the command of a machine and you can't separate the social interaction that we desperately need is humans. And when you do, you start isolating people. We start seeing the rise of the mental health issues that we see. And we start seeing more and more of a pervasiveness in our culture that is
17 Things Jesus Never Said With Doug Giles
"I'm laughing because in chapter two of your book, you have 17 things Jesus never said, and you're quoting fake books of the Bible. And at first of all, you quote Leonard ravenhill, who is a hero with a faith. He says the church right now has more fashion than passion is more pathetic than prophetic is more superficial than Supernatural. Now he didn't say that recently, but it applies, of course. And then you've got a number of quotes, things Jesus never said. This one is from the book of Ringo, 12 36. And I say unto thee. Quarantine thyself live in dread and flee from the sick for thou art in American Christian. That's very funny. But to go right along with that, you have Jesus also didn't say this. This is from the book of specious dew 6 66. Obey civil magistrates who don't give two flying craps about the church. I mean, I don't want to forget this is the most important non scripture that Jesus didn't say. This is from the book of snafu to two 32. Hey, if there's a bad cold going around, stop meeting together, no more corporate gatherings, no more communion and singing and stuff. Exactly. From the book of snafu. Thank you brother for this non scriptural nonsense. It's very important. It's kind of funny because you and I know that like the scripture says what it says, but how we interpret it is not a small thing.
What Made America an Economic Powerhouse in the First Place?
"When you reduce it all down, a wealthy society is only as wealthy as your ability to deter invasion to protect your people and the way that the global American empire has been built built on neoliberalism, by the way, international trade, cheap products, tons of plastic coming from China. Invade the world invite the world kind of the premise of neoliberalism, has also been on if necessary we can crush you. Now, neoliberalism is a flawed ideology. It's a flawed philosophy. It involves open borders. Very questionable social the lack of social values, I guess you could say, seeping into the country, the most amount of cheap stuff you could possibly import imaginable, GDP is your God who cares about church attendance, youth suicide, marriage rates, or the ability to create families, no neoliberalism cares about the stock market. Cares about GDP. They're not even good at managing those things anymore. Neoliberalism believes not in protecting or conserving a society but opening it up to the rest of the world for anyone to enjoy to devour or to take advantage of. But the one thing that the neoliberals used to get right, the one thing that they understood is that this entire project of quote unquote an open society, it can only work, you can only use your currency, people will only take you seriously if you're the strongest participant at the table. By strongest not just economically strong, but it's most importantly militarily strong. That if you are not able to crush your opponents, kill your enemies in a quick fashion, then why should someone use your currency? Like, why are we using this again? I'm stronger than you or this country stronger than you. Why do I have to be using your currency as the world reserve?

If Roe v. Wade Is Overturned, What Does It Mean Around America?
"Roe V wade, it seems to me, will be overturned, if not today, tomorrow. One of these days, this decision is going to come out. So practically speaking, apart from everything we're discussing, what does that mean around America? For example, in a place like Texas, will it be impossible to get a legal abortion in the state of Texas? Well, one of the things that, to your point, if roe versus wade is overturned, it does go back to the states. And right now there are 27 states that have passed some kind of a trigger law, meaning that the law is triggered, it goes into effect at the overturning of roe versus wade. And in some of those states, there is a complete ban on abortion. And in some states, there's a ten week banner 20 week ban or whatever the state might have come up with. Now, in some situations, you have places like New York or California, Maryland, who are working to put trigger laws in effect that legalize it in an extraordinary fashion. It's one of the things that we know with just the polling of the American people is the vast majority of Americans oppose abortions in the third trimester. One of the arguments from pro abortion people is, well, this is a lump of cells or to feed us, and it's always, this is something that I know you have covered and appreciate too. It's always ironic to me that people refer to it as a fetus, as if they don't know what the definition of fetus is. Apparently, people don't know Latin and recognize that that actually means baby in another language. Nonetheless, with it being said, the argument is that it's a fetus. However, when you get into the third trimester, there's no confusion. What is growing in the womb of the mother with a separate DNA, this entirely different body, a functioning body on all kinds of levels. And yet what we are seeing is there are right now some extremists in the pro abortion camp, who are going so far as to not only argue that abortion should be legal in the third trimester, there are actually arguing abortion should be legal after birth, which
Mo Brooks: High Oil Prices Were Done by Design
"Congressman they have to be doing this on purpose The Biden administration can't possibly be this dumb I'm going to cover a story later in the show Even axios which is a left leaning outlet that's reporting this morning that if we were to engage in a Marshall plan like effort to produce energy in this country congressman we could produce 2 million more barrels a day And not that far down the road pretty quickly That would alleviate the supply crisis almost overnight Now congressman you and I both know the people who are surrounding Joe Biden they're not dumb They know this They just don't want to do it They must be enjoying these high prices Well they are enjoying these high prices and excuses they give are strictly a subterfuge to hide from the American people what's really going on This all comes from the global warming scam And I say scam climate change whatever you want to call it because if you actually look at the climate data going back tens of thousands of years or even into the millions of years climate change is the norm Sometimes it goes up Sometimes it goes down and whoever is living on the planet at that time just has to react to it And the appropriate fashion But what the global warming alarmist won't you can go back to Steven Chu when he was the secretary of the Department of Energy They publicly stated that they wanted to increase the cost of gasoline in the United States of America to approximately the cost that was being suffered by those countries in Europe So this was by design because the higher the price than the less is consumed in the less carbon emissions that there are in the air and according to these global warming alarmists the less the globe is going to heat up okay Now think about what Steven Chu was saying back then that was about four or $5 a gallon Now it's more than that This is what they won't by design Now they can't publicly say that because if they do you know what The voting poem is going to get angry So they have to come up with these other kinds of excuses like it's all Putin's fault
The White House Rejects Funding for School Police Officers
"Can you play cut number ten for me, please? Cut number ten. And when it comes to when it comes to schools and I don't know what he said specifically about schools, I know there's been conversation about hardening schools. That is not something that he believes in. He believes that we should be able to give teachers the resources to be able to do the job that they're meant to do at schools. Karine Jean Pierre rejecting from The White House press secretary's podium, the central idea that everyone could agree on on which there might be able to form a consensus around. As was happened when the drinking age was raised to 21, it was done so via the spending power, which is a constitutional exercise offering the state's funding in exchange for a drinking age. Of 21. The feds could offer school funding for armed police on campus, and I believe we need to at all 131,000 K through 12 public and private schools in America. And you could fashion a model statute the passage of which and governor now senator Rick Scott got one through in Florida after Parkland, the passage of which would unlock that money.
Biden Debuts 'Plan to Fight Inflation' Amid Highest Gas Prices Ever
"And let's turn to this grand old plan. That will actually just create more inflation because for some reason these politicians, they think the answer to everything is you just hand out more money. You know, you keep them down on the farm by keeping them a little bit happy, temporarily, but you don't actually address any of the real issues going on with our economy that will create more problems, not just for our generation, but our kids generations and their kids generations. We got ourselves one big old fashioned mess and I'll tell you this, I just want to point out the people get it. People know it. So as much as some on the left, Talking Heads want to say, oh, you know, the economy is great. Yeah, we've got really low unemployment we do, by the way, and I love that. But I would just say, if it's all so great, then why is everybody feeling so bad? Why do we keep getting poll after poll after poll showing us how miserable people are because of all this inflation, right? Higher food, higher energy costs, heck, we are looking at the highest gas prices we've ever seen. In history, and I'll tell you this oil, oil traded at a $115 a barrel that would be crude oil, I suspect that as we get into the busy summer driving season, that's going to go closer to one 30, which means you could be looking at gas prices in some markets of $9 a gallon very, very soon. And you wonder why people feel

"We probably wouldn't doing a podcast though they would automatically when the angels they shouldn't flip tables jeb. I mean he can. I like i said you could wipe the computer off the table. I think that's a perfect segue before we get nitpicks. I would love like one piece of advice that you all would leave with our listeners. What to do when you're wanting to change your role or thinking about it you know. Maybe it isn't flipping the table over or like gm said you can do it. But it's a small community. So i i'm curious like what's one piece of advice you'd live leave our listeners. Yeah i guess. I can start Like i think this is something i like. I echo a lot of what you all said about like staying too long. That was a mistake. Also made And you know it was. And i don't regret it but I think retrospectively. You know it wouldn't have been as consequential to have left early and may have been beneficial you know. We've crossed that bridge in. We'll never know. But one advice that i will give his. You know when you have an awesome team and we have like. It's really hard to to stop like you know being a part of this company family that they've created like when you're looking for a job just relies looking for a job as a full-time job. That was like one piece of advice that Someone gave me and you need to realize that when you are looking for a job you know you have to make sacrifices at your current job you cannot do both and you can't like go interviewing around but expect to be the highest performing person in your team or something like that like if you're looking for a job you need to take it seriously and you and you need to put in the effort because people will see that you're not putting in the effort when you're looking for a job they're going to be like I don't think this percent actually really wants to leave. So just be honest with yourself when you're looking for that job. That was a mistake. That i made i was kind of in this middle ground blake. I'll explore. But if i don't get it then i don't care and i'll just be honest. You're not gonna get it if you don't care. Let's see i guess Share but life is short and so really pay attention to what makes you happy and then try and adjust if you can. I know it's sometimes. It's a lot of privilege to be able to to change roles Easily switch things but but if you can it's worth it 'cause you're spending you know forty plus hours of your life doing this thing at least try and make it so that it generally texas many of those positive boxes as as you can. Ultra seco- the advice that was given in the show by all of you. Which is yeah. Understand your priorities. You should apply different weights to different things before you make a rule change and is stacey. I love what you said earlier yet. Like find a manager that vibes with you like that is so critical week. It's something that i think. Until i got to my current surge my career. I totally neglected. I've just like is it. Cool tech is at a great stack. Is it a cool company with good. Reputation is it. Are they paying me a lot of money and do they have a cool office in like all these other. I guess tangible things but the intangible of do get along with your peers. Do you connect with your manager. Is your manager going to look out for your career growth or are they out petty and if you threaten to leave their flip out on you or something like that. I really can't underestimate the importance. Of what a good manager will play in your career so when you're looking for role really interviewed them just as much they're interviewing you and like press and ask the hard questions and see if they. They signed up to your expectations. Because yeah. I like. Obviously when i say good manager. I'm talking about ryan. I thought i was privileged Manager like three years and literally. I would not be where i am without without him today but like that just like look at where i have now because of a good manager and like you can. You can do so much more when you have a good team manager. Yeah and also like i said earlier. Money isn't everything it is important and don't don't let anybody at all like don't take crap but but it's not everything if you're talking about two different offers at the same pay. Roughly like really really think about what's important. Jam how do i follow that. Thank you man you know. I like your advice. Good managers. I don't think i even valued it until probably recently where i thought like that is like one of my top criteria Because you you spend so much time with them but another thing. I was gonna say to that i've learned is don't wait till you're unhappy and and that's hard is very very hard but i feel like kind of similar to gaza said it's like sometimes you aren't going to show up till is interviews. Well i think when you're so unhappy and almost defeated in your current role it shows in the interview. Like you show up on confident like you're just knocking to show up your best self and that's tough. It's such a shitty place to be in. I feel for anyone having to be there. Because you're like get out like you've realized. I need to get out and you need to interview. Hopefully you can try and avoid getting in that and if you are in that space take a break take vacation try and get out of that head space and interview Because i think you wanna set yourself up for success in.

"Is the work you're doing valuable are you. Selling ads is people is it. Like soul-crushing work but it's more money like you. It's really important not to get too distracted by money. And i i say this in a in a position of privilege. I now because we're we're pretty good at here but the mistake. I made leaving company for more money and missing. All the red flags. Like hey seven. Pm wiser but he's still here all because the ceo still here. He likes to see us working. That's a red flag right there. But i'm like it's more money. Or hey the the two founders are like pretty buddy buddy and they like to go out drinking you crazy time. Come back to the office sometimes. That's a red flag right there. But i missed all of that. Because i've solely focused on the the increase in salary that i got and thankfully i was able to leverage that that opted to do more. But that's a mistake. Just looking at pure compensation is almost always a mistake. It's important factor but like stacey said you have the wave against everything else like not asking my mistakes. I think we're like as my career progressed. I've learned more about what i should ask in the interview and knowing the really important questions to ask because of how much they affect me make me happy or not happy and now knowing these questions better. I'm like i made mistakes. Not asking the right things in the interview process. And then you get to the job and you're like l. This was not. I did not sign up for this but not sometimes they aren't going to tell you at interview right like sometimes maybe they make everything more rosy than it actually is. But that's that's For sure and that comes a little more with experience to like you start to build a read it a little bit better where you're like Yeah you're you're pitching the rosy picture but like what is it actually liken this culture. You mentioned good managers. I've definitely stayed too long with like bad managers. And i think it's like you think it's gonna get better at. Doesn't you know. I wish it did. But it doesn't and so. I've definitely had that happen more than a couple of times where i've stuck it out being like. Oh it's going to get better. But i don't. I don't know when the right time is or when's the right. Timing cheers chair. I like to call it like where you're like. It is literally not getting better. I don't know that that's one that's always stuck out my mind words. It comes down to. I felt like i stayed too long. I still don't have an answer for this. But i'm gonna share it that it's like every time i reflect on like stay too long. That was a mistake. And so i don't know if i shorten that over the years when i've had that happen i don't know but it's a tough one to deal with. It's so hard because sometimes. Maybe you like your teammates are great in like other aspects are really jabre and that's the only variable that's not and you're like well i'll just ignore that all ignore my manager as much as possible and then but the other stuff like you know. Pay attention to my teammates. And maybe that'll make it better. You end up staying too long absolutely. Yeah it goes to those factors of like you put them all in you. Wait them and everything like that. And you're like we'll have this amazing team. I love the work. I'm happy in that aspect. But then you go into like a one on one with your manager and you're like all my god i hate my life and it's like that's a huge barrier right there but like you you kind of like rationalize it because you're like i have all these amazing other features that come with it i. I've been fortunate to be around a lot of people in and socialize with a lot of people. So i i can save some steaks. I've i've seen made in that were shared with me One is ryan just like you're saying staying too long like listening. I i guess falling for the emotional appeal of a role where it's like were startup. We're a family we brought you in and we took you out of boot camp in bill tuned to this incredible software engineer You should stay because we care about you. And i'm not discounting you know. There are really tight relationships. You form at work but no one else is looking out for your career more than you not not your manager not not your best friends like it's just you because at the end of that you have to do the work I've seen people stick around too long. Accompanies because they're like. Oh you know we're family. It's tight Unlike you can do better than this place and it's it's not the best place for you I've seen i've seen people leave companies like you're saying i guess this because like one bad day and granted usually one bad day at the the compound result of many bad days but like one thing you like flip out burn bridges and just like f you guys. I'm out. I think it's mistake even if it's a terribly toxic company tech is a really small world. I promise you the people. I run into ten years ago. Our people i see today at even l. We've never worked together. We still the circles are still the same. So leading. Poorly no matter how companies treating. You is as a mistake. Have your have your dignity and walk out the front door. That yeah i i've seen. I've seen a lot of mistakes. Obviously if if people had perfect careers than.

"Posters accepts you you take away all that the hanging there monkey. What your was is like. It's a job in job at the core is how you exchange your time for money and having all this time to think we've all like a collectively a at least in the states at but i think the broader we've all looked at our lives and careers in like. This isn't what i wanna do. The i'm not making a difference anymore and money isn't everything and that is it's not just tacky. It's all industries which is really fascinating. I for one in fascinating. See what's going to happen five years. And what's the result of all these things but yeah for people dropping out of tack to become like on to open a restaurant or do something like they really want to do with their lives. So that said Combined that that feeling we all have with the fact that if anything the pan-demic solidified texts hold on the world and the fact that we all need it it is no longer. Oh yeah which is nice. Renner payment and netflix is nice. And you know these These offer development tools. They're they're nice to have though. They are necessary parts of society. Now so every tech company that you have ever heard of is hiring every almost every single one so yeah you take up. Being burnt out in considering reconsidering career of choices and the fact that every tech companies are it is literally the best time in history to switch switch jobs. And don't don't ask me on twitter. I'm not telling you to switch your job. I'm just saying hypothetically if you wanted to do that. It's a really good time to do that. Also tech salary. That's just a chapter that being said to like. I honestly believe it's kind of one of the best times interview to is because you're not required to go in person and so it's a lot more flexible where you can just slot time on your calendar real like a meeting or a half day. I'm in a meeting you don't you. Don't show up to work really well dress and people like or you interviewing today like like. That's an obvious situation versus or have to take a random wednesday off. That doesn't have to happen right. And nobody's the wiser and you don't have that awkward feeling so agree and so many of what you said jam but also it's easier and i think that helps the situation but to someone else you said you mentioned comp and i think like comp is not a driver always for everyone but compensation is important. We need to make money right like we need to make money to survive and better ourselves. Whatever you you can look at it in so many different angles. I also want to call it something that i've recognized. Why have left companies or roles in the past not feeling valued and comp can be that signal is like but it may not even be that as having a manager being like. You're doing a great job. That is sometimes a value enough but compensation can be value trigger or just like being recognized for your work. And i think a lot of those things have stemmed me being like. Oh i should probably go look for something else. Because i'm not being valued and knock can be at to yeah to your point earlier about people like switching roles maybe more frequently now in the pen to make after having thinking about things like if you'd have asked me a few years ago if i would like switch jobs or switch roles like during a pandemic out of bed like no like that fun scary like i'm a conservative person in the in and a lot of ways and i'm like no i i would. That was too risky. And but i did it because of the i during the pin. I switched because i was like. You're you're assessing. What makes you happy and why you have a lot more time. You've had potentially more time to think about that now. It's like yeah i need to. I need to make a change. Because i'm happy doing what i'm doing. I'm so thankful. I made a change anything. It's a bunch of yeah so did yeah gem as well timing was right. You might say cheers while put cheers. I think an important distinction to call out for a friend and happy hour regulars. We're not saying switch jobs or switch. Companies were saying switch roles. Sometimes that's just switching roles within your own company sometimes it's switching roles within your own team like you move from senior software engineer software engineer to technically that is a different role. But you're still in the same team and you have a very different spot on your team. Ryan says this all the time about the manager but being a manager is a role on a team is not a promotion it is it is a different role role. We have dobbs on the teams just like software. Engineers have jobs on the teams. So it's not that. I want to call out that. You don't necessarily have to move everything and flip it upside down and throw table out the window. If you want to change you can often do within your own team. I mean sometimes it does feel good to flip table. Fuck such a great feeling is and we. We've all been there is when you've already you've already You have an offer. You've already accepted you put in your two weeks and.

"Welcome to a new episode of the front end. Happy our podcast lately. It seems like a lot of people are switching jobs or taking on a different role in this episode. We will share our thoughts on when it is the right time to take a new career change or maybe sure thoughts on when it hasn't been the best time. Let's go around the table or virtual table and give introduction of today's panelists. gem you on started off gem. Young engineering manager at netflix stacy london senior front and engineer on trello augustus. Gus software engineer at twitch. All right and i'm ryan burgess may suffer engineering manager at net flicks in each episode of the front. End happier podcasts. We love to choose a keyword that if it's mentioned in the episode we will all take a drink. What did we decide. Today's keyword is timing. Timing all right. If we say the word timing which i'm pretty sure we will We all take a drink. I figured a good way to start was. I'd like to really know what typically triggers each of you to start thinking about a new role or even like just not even deciding to make that role change but even just being like inkling. I think i need a role change. Maybe it's moving to a new company. Wha what triggers that so many factors. Maybe you're not doing. Let's just just as example. Maybe you're like not doing the kind of work that you're really excited about. You not necessarily board. But maybe there's something about what you're doing that's a little too routine and you wanna challenge yourself more indifferent in switch it up that way think. Boredom is correct. I was speaking with the engineering leader. Here who. I really respect a bruce wang. Any shared his page. Which all we can lincoln show notes but it shows his philosophy as a engineering leader. And it's like a chart where it's like you wanna strike the balance between challenging and something that is is is comprehensible in. It's in your wheelhouse and it's a really hard balance strike because if it's too challenging then you get burnt out because you're just like things fire all the time. I just don't feel like i'm accomplishing anything. And if it's too easy then you get bored and then same same thing but different side of the coin. You don't feel like you're accomplishing anything meaningful. And so you really wanna strike that balance. And i think when i'm thinking about the role change it's when i'm on either side of that coin More likely the boredom side. I'm not one to shy away from a challenge. I prefer them. But i'll there's a lot to like stacey said. There's many many things that go into a changing roles but for me. I think boredom and absence of meaningful challenge is one of the first things i think to add to the challenge. Part two is like. I think that years experience isn't really equal. If if that makes sense if you sometimes at a different company or different role you might be challenged that much more and learned that much in a year than you would like job where you're like i get this and so i think that that's something i think about to like constantly being challenged i'm gonna grow faster and so if i start to feel complacent and just feeling like i've got this. Then that's like knock going to help my growth in those. Those years of experience are still years of experience. Like don't get me wrong. But i feel like jumping into a new challenge is like ten years of experience just from that yet. I wanted to plus one the the growth part like not necessarily boredom. But i think it's always good to have an idea of where you wanna be in five ten years and if all a sudden you don't really see that path like really happening where you are then. I think that's always a good time to reevaluate like okay. What can i do at my current company to get back on track and if there's really nothing available than maybe it's probably assign you know. Maybe it's time to look into explore and you should never feel ashamed about exploring opportunities right like everyone it's like it's you have to do. What's in your best interest. That just like the company will do. What's in their best interest. And you'd like to think that for a lot of companies their best interest you that doesn't always align sadly that's just the sad truth so i think sometimes exploring doesn't mean you're necessarily going to leave right ultimately it just might highlight that you like what you do not like the best place for you and so i actually almost say that it's a good thing to continually look for new opportunities like. Yeah there's a balance. You're not going to do that full time but to keep your eyes open for certain things and just hear about different roles because it it may just remind you that you actually do level. You're doing and not can be awesome in itself or you find an opportunity like i can't pass that up because it's so good. That was the situation for me where i was hoping to stay inside of a technical track and the next step from senior was a principal and the the current plays the place that i was at. I talked to a few people about like no. That's not really an opportunity. You know here and so i was like well. That sounds like there's not a crew. Advancement were matt so like that forced me to look around and and then i found a spot where that could be an opportunity in a possibility. So that's definitely a reason. We can all learn from you. Stacey and being proactive about our career and looking ahead five years and saying where do i wanna go and is my current role where i'm at suited to take me there. And so i like i. That's why absolute respect for you. Because you will be proactive and think about these things versus. It could be five years from now. You're just like Can't get a raise. Or i'm just not going anywhere and you're just frustrated but like that is something entirely within your power to change especially in industry especially right now is do what you did. You want to be principal. Go go move to a place where you can be principal. Why right now jim. I'll man i we're gonna we're gonna we're to get to this later but so i'll tell you now right now. We are going through Compensation review season at netflix at work. It's not performance. Review and google is going through a bunch of this stuff too. I think a lot of companies are around the santander and they're not called performance reviews because they're not performance reviews. They are important distinction separate measure performance versus comp while we two different times a year deliberately but Part of part of beat manager. Netflix means i need to go out and look at the market and say what is the top market for my current team. And hang them. Enough is their compensation correct. And so doing that. I talked to a lot of people like a lot of people. And i read a lot of articles and i liked understand. Save the industry and right now across all industries. This isn't just software engineering all industries. We are going through. What was it. Called the great attrition where people are switching roles or dropping out of the market or switching to entirely new career. Pass because being at home this past Pandemic year so that's to normal years is a one pandemic year Being stuck at home during a pandemic year means that we've had a of time to think and reflect on what we're doing in the world in are making a difference.

I hope he's coped because if not his mind is racing like a mad man film may be the only way he can calm it because if you hear him doing this interview in every interview i've ever seen with him he looks like he's coked out of his head he's his head moves around and he grunts his jaw. Anyway i love the guy. I love his movies. And he says to rogan. That everybody in harvey weinstein's orbit knew what he was doing. The obamas wanted the clintons and all those democrats that he raised money for and hung out with michelle obama that said he was such a great guy. They all knew. Listen of this one of the things like ice. Sit at interview with with the with the two women that crack the case on the new york times. I did talk with them during that time and talk about it that much afterwards because like well. I did it with them. And that's enough but One of the things i ended up like saying is well. I wished i had done more During the time a lot of people like read a lot of what that could possibly mean. Well actually what it means. Is i wish i had talked to the guy i wished i had sat him down and had the uncomfortable conversation. I didn't know what about any rapes or anything like that. I just but i knew he was. You know i chalked it up to the boss chasing the secretary around the desk. As if that's okay but i mean that's how i that's how i kind of looked at it. You know he was. You know making unwanted advances. That's how i looked at it but I wish i talked to him. I wish i had back harvey. You can't do this. you got everything. Do you think that no one talked to him. And maybe that was how he got so yeah completely out of control maybe his brother bob. Maybe but i you know I don't think anybody talked to about it. And the thing about it is everybody who was in his orbit knew about it. There's nobody who said they didn't know that didn't know if you were in his orbit and that includes all the big actors who he palled around with. They all know they all knew. They didn't know any probably didn't know anything about rapes but they had heard they had heard things. They had heard they'd heard about him. Just you know you know putting the bite on somebody in a limo or something there you go. Of course they knew and you remember before harvey weinstein came out. That was how they were going after. Republicans was metoo movement and then it turned out in ensnared all the democrats so it turns out the white liberal men who were running around claiming that the rest of us were rapists.

Redistributing wealth. I'm going to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour that just think about the irrationality of this Small businesses are dying in this country. They're hurting badly in this country. Now you're going to raise the minimum wage. What's that going to do for employment? Ladies and gentlemen? What's that going to do for Relatively small businesses. Apple will be able to handle it. Twitter will be able to handle it. He's giving a speech about hunger. Here's what I don't understand. We spend a fortune on the food stamps program. What's happening. It doesn't work. He's had hunger programs, food programs, rent programs, he programs. We have spent trillions and trillions of dollars. We're gonna bail out states. We're gonna bail out cities. So do you think those cities and states that are going to be bailed out are now going to reform, their finances and their budgets? Of course not. It's like the colleges and universities. Money, you give them the more money they spend and waste. So he's giving an old fashioned hard core. Government speech. That's what he's doing. And for young people who haven't heard it before. It might be a learning. But there's nothing here in his speech that I was listening to it. The break It talks about how you're actually going to embrace Economic growth. You know the late, great Water. Williams. Great time of soul. The late great Building. Freeman. Hayak. So many others just common sense. Spending this kind of money. And expecting to have economic growth is simply not going to happen. If people need relief. That's one thing temporary relief, but this will not create economic growth. And when it's combined with massive Tax increases. Massive inheritance tax increases so people are losing their farms and their small businesses. A nephew it that's aimed at ideological redistribution of wealth. Massive regulatory activities because he's appointing a leftist every one of these departments and agencies. Which have is their purpose. Essentially, the core is to control Individuals. To control entrepreneurs and businesses and growth and so forth. You can see with building You can see down the road. What's going to happen? Who is going to talk about a national minimum wage of $15. The other things they're going to do is they're going to try to nationalize election laws. That helped serve the Democrats purposes, this election cycle and certainly Biden So they're going to do that as well. So it's going to be massive power grab. Here's Here's the thing that amazes me. How many more times the socialism or neo Marxism or Cologne? Whatever you want State ISMs. How many times the state isn't need to be tried before people realize it doesn't work? It doesn't create jobs. It doesn't create wealth. In terms of poverty. Typical Obama care I go on and on and on. We have debt as far as the eye could see, As I said, I'm the one host that kept talking about that. Maybe there's a few others out there. They oppose so much of the spending and I still do. If you could have open borders. People are going to flood into this country. They're already lining up getting ready to flood and even the president Mexico's a socialist, various concerned about this it a great working relationship with President Trump. And then buying is going to nationalize big chunks of our health care. Dismiss the student death. This is all contrary. Two. The economic process, not one that I prefer. It just is what it is. The market system is the natural system of human beings conducting business. This is not So how many more times this has have to be tried to tried. Britain's been tried France. It's been trying so many countries in one form or another. It doesn't create wealth that doesn't lower unemployment. And so we're gonna go through this again. As well as the power grab. You want to make sure everything they want to do. Cannot be stopped by a court by controlling the courts. Imagine if Donald Trump had packed the Supreme Court. So you're going to say you're going to see real live state is, um If you really want understand what's happening. You wanna put emotions aside. And I am not. And I am not pushing the sales of my book. Trust me on this. Trust me on this. These are older books. But those of you who have rediscovering Americanism and the tyranny progressivism. That's the key book that will lay it all out for you. It's not the easiest book to read in the world. I understand that I agree with that. So Biden says his plan doesn't come cheap. But if we don't take his enormously expensive plan in the end, it'll be even more costly. More government. More bureaucrats. Less liberty, more redistribution of wealth, the hardworking people this country her out, They're going to see less income. Heavy regulations, making a more more difficult for economic opportunity and growth. It's a vicious cycle.

"Flirt. GASP.

She wanted you to follow her the gentleman had one responsibility to return her handkerchief with their excuse me miss. But I believe you drop this in this dream sequence. The gentleman has a handlebar mustache and looks like Antonio Bandera says younger brother just play along. These were simpler times and yet has anything changed. You can try this age-old trick by dropping various items in his path, a scarf, a sandwich, a glove, etc. Bonus points if he actually own a handkerchief. Unless his foot is stuck in a bear trap, most men will chase after a woman to return her dropped item. But of course, once he returns, you're errand glove you still have to open the conversation a terse. Thank you won't Inspire Witty. Banter. You need to throw a bit more chum in the water. So instead of just thanking him at a quirky detail tossed item, for example, thank you. My sister would have killed me if I lost her favorite scarf, you just saved me for my siblings wrath or try. This is the second time I have dropped that scarf today do you think it is running for me?

"With being spread out all over the place you were speaking about making sure you bought quality meats and corn. y'All handle that on a store by store purchasing plan or do you handle that in the corporate office or what. Yeah we We we all do it. We have a full-time buyer her. Name's Rich Rachel buyer she. It's kind of interesting how she's worked fulltime right. I never thought of that so I just said it. But anyway she's our first. She's our full-time purchasing agent. And so what we do. And probably the things you'd find most interesting is like our beef purchasing report purchasing so I think we contracting attracted four million pounds of brisk this next year so we do national contracts so we'll go to cargill Tyson and talked to those folks and they will give us a steady price for the entire year. That's the same quality SPEC to all of those restaurants so we've we've done business with cargo for example and we've done business with Smithfield logic replaces. So we'll go in and whether it's port butts ribs briskets skits. We'll negotiate that price for as long as we can to get a steady price. And what they do. Is We all know the cattle market goes like this right. Well they're going out and they're hedging. They're buying futures futures contracts protect their side so we can get a steady price on our products for the entire year. That way we can dial in and we know what our food cost is and we know exactly what the what the quality level is of that brisket or pork shoulder but also we got to commit to that poundage so this year we committed to to a bunch of pounds of brisket. I don't remember the number but I think we had like two hundred thousand pounds extra so Rachel's out sitting there trying to literally sell truck a couple of truck it loads a brisket to some other people because we couldn't take it at that time So it's a balancing act you got you sign. A contract is a contract. So if we're saying we're buying four million pounds. We need four million pounds in the next so many months. So there's a little bit of risk on our point but we also know how much we're going to sell what we're GONNA do that. Works for all of our proteins. We do that really almost for everything weather as paper plates anything the probably ninety five percent of what we buy a contract price so we know and negotiation process for us. But we're buying truckloads of stuff tough. And so they're they're they work with us as well and then you go well. Gee Whiz if you're buying all this from cargill for example let's say they're sterling brisket. Good how do we get it to all these forty seven locations in seven states. Will we work with the national distributor. In right now it's called Reinhardt. Art and so they then get it from cargill's or Tyson's put it in their distribution warehouses and then they put it on. The truck can get all of our restaurants and so back to the consistency and quality. It actually has gotten easier as we've gotten bigger because we have more leverage negotiating power to get consistency right when we're starting we're buying street price and we're just trying to get stuff now talked to us right. You're going to talk to somebody that's buying a a fair amount of being so long answer to your question but that's how it works and those are those are great jobs and interesting jobs you know to go out and work with restaurants and and so forth in terms of in terms of buying and selling what's funny about a restaurant businesses. I'm like one of the few Weirdos that has a farm background in economics degree and I'm CEO of a restaurant company because we have actually team members the really deep down know what brisket is they just know. It's beef but I have like educate them on like okay. This is actually was an animal and this is what it was and so forth in another question right here so one of the things I I guess that's unique to barbecue versus like other foods. Is that people want it. Like I think people are looking for their local barbecue restaurant. Their city has some unique. How do you overcome that challenge? Like what's to your marketing approach and once you're kind of selling point when you enter a new city you're open a new store. What are you doing in the next couple months? It's because we're trying to figure that out right now we're we're literally figuring out what we're doing. Focus groups because I think I don't think this is necessarily really true with barbecue but I think it's true with any restaurant that doesn't have national presence yet so when we opened another one saying Columbus Ohio Cincinnati Body Armor Dayton. We do really well right out the gate because they know us the challenge for us because we're still what we would call a regional company when we jumped jumped to Chicago Barbecue. It's a clue we've done better when we call it the ripple effect so if we start in Columbus we go to Cincinnati we go to Dayton. They kind of know us as we go. That has been more effective now. What was weird is when we went to Raleigh North Carolina? They embraced us right away so I have no idea why they did other than the food was good. And maybe they're used to barbecue but in Chicago for example or Charlotte. They didn't embrace us right away. Because I think there's a lot of local competitors a lot of local folks what's unique about a company like say chick-fil-a. I mean you're doing national advertising. You could be living seven in Wilson. Kansas and know who chick-fil-a is so if a chick-fil-a ever comes into Kansas. You'RE GONNA go there because you know it. We don't have that advantage edge yet so we still have to really be very organic and start from very brash. A grassroots level. Are you a marketing guy. Do like marketing sure. Yeah I mean marketing. Let me tell you something. Marketing is so analytical. I hope you're taking a lot of analytics. Classes is statistical artistic classes because marketing in the analytics and the data. That's out there. Marketing is not Don Draper Your Watch Madman. Don Don Don draper sitting back and smoking a cigarette. Drinking Scotch and right in advertising marketing is analytics data data and taking all that data having customer insights knowing what it is and then presenting a a campaign or awareness to the guest. And we're really lucky right now. Our new chief marketing officer. She is wish upon. Outlay you ever heard of that small little company. She was worship poll when they had three units and grew it. So she's got a lot of this information to help us. Hopefully get what you put lays doing. It's fun though. But if you love marketing and you WANNA go into get into analytics and data to understand that how that works too great question. Hopefully I answered it because we haven't really figured figured it out right now so we're still trying to figure out what we found was city barbecue is we don't necessarily open it a big volume but we grow grow grow over time no matter where we're at we just don't want to open here we want open here and so that's what we're trying to figure out. Let me tell you three secrets of success. If you're if you're a I had to write these down because I just have to While you're thinking of questions and we have how long a man I thought it was about their. Okay run out of material. No here's three of of success and I just wrote these down a couple of weeks ago because it drives me crazy you wanNA know. Three stages of us are ready. Ready to run down show up on time. Return the phone call and write it down. You're going okay. Well what's so brilliant about that. I can't tell you the number of people we have not done business with because they violated one of those three covenants. They didn't show up on time or they wouldn't return our phone calls and get back to us whether the news was good or bad or they didn't write it down and so therefore they didn't didn't write down and guess what they forgot about it and it drives me crazy. If I'm in a meeting and we're doing something I don't see people either typing it on their iphone or writing it down now I write it down because I'm from the generation that types with my fingers way faster than my thumbs. I can't ride on an iphone but But you got to write stuff down so show up on time. Return the phone call and ride down pretty basic stuff. But I think if you do those three things you'll be ahead of seventy seventy five percent of the people out there any other question whether question. Yep keep going. So as you've you've gone from a really small company in Dayton have you brought in more investors have you just reinvested using your own prophets. And like what's the trying nine did explode like what's the big. Yeah that W- I love. These questions are good questions. So from one thousand nine hundred nine till two thousand and fifteen. We grew completely organically so body and I owned roughly seventy percent of the company. And we did it with limited bank debt and now in that God has to about twenty. I want to say twenty four twenty five restaurants somewhere in there but then then my fiftieth birthday. Hit a roughly around fifty right eight and I'm thinking man we're still signing these personal guarantees. You know what a personal guarantee is. It's what they do when you go borrow borrow money and not only do they want you to pledge your assets. They want you to sign personally that if this business goes bad. We're coming after your house. We're coming after your car all all. That's a personal guaranteed. I asked body to sign one right when we opened the first restaurant and that was kind of vague on what it was because we get it done but that's why it was scary. Start Start now so we still had those shadows. A personal guarantees fifty years old a heavily taken any money out of the business. But we'd grown at about I think as twenty four restaurants something like that But we still could have gone from there. We could have easily gone but I had a couple of desires in mind. One is I needed to get exposed to new learning and so I wanted to get a board of directors that really could help me with new learning and the second was to get some money off the table for myself in our investors and third at that point. I really thought we had something special enough because we could go national. We were successful in Indianapolis. We were successful in Raleigh successful in Columbus. So I we made a very conscientious decision to go out and seek private equity and so we went through a process and made a conscious decision to sell fell about fifty five percent of the company and it wasn't.

"Compensation above industry standard. We do not believe in minimum wage. We have sixteen hundred team members today. I believe three of them are at minimum wage. That's because they're sixteen year old kids first job. They'll probably be off the minimum wage pretty quick but we don't believe in it. We believe in paying above industry industry standards because if we if we can do that and provide the right environment. We're GONNA get the best teammates here. DOIN' in the first video The assistant manager. He was talking about some things. Do on came to us. I think about ten years ago and he was homeless it was from from an alcohol infused family and he became a dishwasher for us and he was desperate just to get a job as ten years ago today day. Doin makes over fifty thousand dollars. An assistant manager is just simply going up from there and I'm not sure even as a high degree but he came in with the right attitude. The right skillset and he wanted to perform and it's just a great success story while the coolest things about him is bonding are walking through norstroms. A couple years ago and fancy antsy department store and look over and there's two one at the jewelry counter by in his at the time fiancee's Christmas present. And here's a guy that was homeless living in his car. So that's an interesting things. A lot of people say restaurants is a bad industry. It's a loser. Industry is not good for you. Know it's a great industry and people that go in and work hard they can rise and they have that right to rise and they canoe progressed and do quite well but we do believe in starting them at a compensation that's above industry standard. What am I initiative this year? Twenty twenty is to Have every single full-time employees in our company at a living wage. Because I think that's just the right thing to do and I believe we're there right now. Share the wealth and the sustainable fashion that goes with that I believe in standards and accountability. I don't believe leaving equal outcomes if you all come to a class and take a test you all believe you should get an a no matter. What your effort was heck? No why should it be any different in the real world. If you perform well you should make more if you don't perform well you shouldn't make as much where you find another job profit cash flow to funds for sustainable growth. In in spite of what we hear in the political process today profit in cash flow is a good thing. That's what enables a company to grow. That's what enables you to have 401k programs health benefit the program for your team members bonus programs and the ability to grow that organization and so we believe in profit and cash flow. We believe in being positive members of the community we give give about ten percent of our prophets way every year to various causes throughout the communities whether it's in food trade sponsorships etcetera to nonprofits. And then I'm a Vega lever in long term value creation. I will never make a decision for the next week. I'm always making it for the long term value of our company can go so the values of our company opening our purpose. You might find funny purpose. Every day is a servant create happiness if an employee of a team member walks into the restaurant today and I say what's our purpose they say hopefully to serve and create happiness. That's your job is job to be to serve in Korea happiness with your not members and is to serve and create happiness with your guests if they do that then we all win and so those that's a little bit of a purpose in a values as is a company at this point. I've been gap in for. Oh my gosh forty minutes. I'm GonNa shut up now. Answer any questions we'll take it to. QNA Any questions. You have birth so this is i. Don't I mean okay. So how do you run a successful barbecue place in so many different places when everyone's barbecue is different out. That's a great question that was asked on day. One so city barbeque started in Arlington Ohio. And we're in seven states today or in Chicago and Atlanta and I think we we have a picture of where we are on their sure. I'll let the professor figure this out. Hey that's when we got the Tennessee tickets. Anything else on there. Well today we have fifteen over fifteen hundred team members and forty seven locations but I think we had a map there. Okay great because I want to answer your question so we're We're in Chicago. Were an Indianapolis. We're quite a few places in Ohio. Obviously we're in Louisville and Lexington Kentucky were in Charlotte Raleigh North Carolina. You go what we're in Atlanta. Hannah Georgia couple Asians and so to your question barbecues different everywhere how right. How do you adapt? Ironically we do the best we do really well Atlanta in Raleigh. And we don't do quite as well in Chicago where you'd think well there's all this competition in Raleigh Atlanta Chicago. Not as much but I think the answer to that question is that question. Twenty five thirty years ago was very relevant because barbecue is such a niche. Such thing that everybody had their their own style but today think about the country and I say this if you parachuted me into a the city at night and I did not know what that city was and they parachuted. In and in the morning I woke up. I'm GonNa see a home depot a starbucks nordstroms all the McDonald's on down the line right cities have so many of the same things every city out. There has the same things anymore is ubiquitous and so I think because society is always moving always rotating as well. The people aren't so worried about that style so we don't worry about the style the barbecue we were about being competition quality. And that's how it's worked for now twenty five years ago that might. You've been true but I think today it's changed a lot of questions. Yes do you think your thin barbecue sauce us a secret barbecue barbecue sauce or like Oh actually thing the barbecue when we say is if we have to put sauce over the meat we have something to hide because we believe. It's the cooking technique of what the barbecue is. The sauce is just a condiment having said that we have a tomato based sauce. We have a hot or thicker sauce. To your point we have vinegar sauce called swine wine. We have a a yellow mustard based sauce and then we do limited time offer sauces where we have a bourbon sauce right now going. We've had like a steak style L. Barbecue sauce to Kinda mix things up a bit sweet change that throughout the year but I guess our staple that started it was our original and that's a tomato tomato based little thicker and I'm another question. How do you adapt to all the Diet crazes including ingredient concerns but still in state trudy brand man? That's a you mean things like GMO. All natural locally raised Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. Abol first of all. I believe you're going to get me on a tangent I've tried not to but first of all don't don't believe what somebody types on a blog when they're sitting in their parents basement and their underwear. Okay go go with it has visual you want right. That's that's you'll rely on. Science rely on science to say what there is out there. Now having said that everybody's jumping on the bandwagon of. Oh we're not not GMO. Like all of a sudden. GMO's awful. We're all natural or organic roll this and that. Ironically we have not chased that it yet. Now I think a couple of items like one of our barbecue sauces gluten free so we put gluten free on it and I think but we you don't chase that non GMO and those labels right now because while people may talk about it when they come to city barbeque. They're not really worried about it and we actually did focus groups last week. We did one in Chicago and one in Columbus and that didn't really come up either as they're not. GMO NON GMO. So I'm not going to eat there now. I do believe that consumer today is very aware and being more cognisant of where the animals are raised you know are the humanely treated did etc.. And I think that's more about being a good human being But we haven't worried about the non antibiotic stuff yet there though. Our chickens are antibiotic free of that just because the way they were twenty years ago and they're really really good chickens that we buy but we didn't chase him because of that issue but who knows it's going to be what people think. Is this stuff a fad. Is it not a fad. I think we all need to be aware of it. I think we all need to study it but I think also thinking these are come down to science. If you can show me a scientific report the demos are bad than all. Read the report but I'm not not gonNA just believe some blogger in his parents basement and it's the same way with all natural organic all of that. I'm going to go back to the science of it and not just go chase. Ace the latest fad. But but it goes back to believe in the science believe in the science of what it is and do the correct thing. Now here's one on my one of my predictions and in this is just feeding the world is I believe in five years. You'RE GONNA walk into your local grocery store and you're not going to see a meat counter. Then I'll get scared. You'RE NOT GONNA see meat counter you're GONNA see meet but it's going to be a protein counter because of all these vegetable based proteins that are coming out and I'm not saying that's a bad thing I think there's always a place for beef and pork and lamb and chicken because it's tasty and delicious and it's a great source course a protein but I will tell you what the population of the world access a five billion and growing we gotta figure out how to get protein to a lot of places and just maybe a vegetable based protein can help fill that void. And that's not slamming and taken away from the beef producers pork producers because we're always going to have that and that's always going to be place place like I said that's still going to be on the shelf in the grocery store but we're just going to see a lot of other stuff that's going to be protein. And as agricultural people our job is not to raise cattle. Our job is to feed the world so when you look at feeding the world if that's an alternative that's okay in my opinion opinion. That's okay even those. I still love juicy steak and I still will but you get the idea. If you're going to get protein in the Diet of this entire world you you can't. I don't think you can do it on beef and hogs and chicken alone this plan to populate it and it will be. That's my little. That's my opinion China. You mentioned that you kind of like just like wrote down this whole plan when night and then went forward with it on Could you talk a little more to like exactly. What kind of business structure you're trying to go with at the beginning in whether or not like how successful was what you changed in those first first I couple periods the so? I I So I failed to mention I got an MBA from Illinois. Because I when I was working for John Deere got an executive. Mba to get more business skills and accounting and finance and so now that I've got my MBA. I feel like I know everything about business so I go out in a write this business plan so I did. I wrote a business plan. It had profit and loss statements pro forma the whole thing marketing plan. What the concept would look like? Because I didn't have enough money to do it all on my own and I also need some expertise with me. So Bonding I. When we started the company we owned seventy percent of it? But I had these other thirty percent. Owners of various specialties. That kind of helps so I had to prepare some type of business plan for them so I did go. In with a very structured plan I went to banks and because I just knew that banks would wanNA loan me money and I knew I hit rock bottom when I walked into a bank three weeks later after forgiving my business plan and they literally could not find my business plan and it was in a drawer somewhere and they said yeah here you go. We're not interested as pretty insulting. But that's the way it works. Works adversity so we had that business plan and we had a pretty good structure of how we wanted to do it but then a week. It's calling Mike. Tyson says everybody has a good plan until they get punched in the face a week after we opened. I realized that plan was so inaccurate and so bad The didn't even wasn't even remotely accurate in terms of what the performance would be in the numbers and all that but you still got to start with something and you still got to start with a good idea.

They're like, I think he may actually feel that way and be trying to bring things back together. I had no idea or it could have been a tactical play. But I don't know what that tactical play necessarily gains you, especially if you're other teammates don't feel the same way as you. Well, I think the tactic would be based on the understanding that the one guy who is above all others on this team has been Rothlisberger. This is not an was not Tonio grounds team Levy on bells team any of these other guys team. No, it was Ben he has the relationship with the owner. He has the diplomatic immunity to criticize everybody else. So the tactic might simply a young guy realizing, oh, this is how this workplace go. Yeah. But but again in the end, what does it get you?

What get you Tonio Brown and never stopped over giving the ball Antonio Brown Levy on Belgian like it didn't stop them from giving levian bells. If it's a tactic. What is it accomplish it?
