"You can't drive profits and profits are what you need in a business like a long-term sustainable profit. That's just hard to do. But that's why we walked away. You won't away, and you did the thing that nobody's nobody would say is right. So I have a friend who just who two years ago started a physical print magazine. Excellent. And she's done super well, it's completely counterintuitive, right? Because like, are you mad? You know, like, nobody's printing magazines, and she has a very high end magazine. It does very, very well. You encounter intuitive, and you went retail. You bricks and mortar, a young crack? What's going on? Well, we didn't necessarily go to sell to other retailers. We just did, we just did direct to consumer ourself. We said, we're going to drop our prices about 30%, because we kept having to creep our prices up to accommodate this increasing Amazon margin. And we called ourselves a direct to consumer company. And I kind of considered Amazon at the time, like a hybrid hybrid retail because they took 15%. It wasn't Keystone markup where they were taking half. Now they're taking half, I've jacked my prices up. I'm not really a direct to consumer company. I'm just a retailer. It doesn't sell in Walmart. I just sell on Amazon. So we said, that's not the future. We dropped the prices by 30%. We actually, we continue to sell on Amazon. We just drew our prices up, high enough to cover their costs. So it was like, I don't know, 30% higher to buy on Amazon. Still today, 10% of our sales go through Amazon. And what that tells you, I mean, they're buying a tower paddle board. The only other place it's sold is on tower paddle boards dot com and they're willing to pay 30% is not a small amount in this product. Another $150 to buy that through Amazon. And they're not even like, oh, can I buy this direct from the brand? 10%, don't care. And you know why that is? It's because Amazon is a convenience store. No longer is the best price, the best deal. It's not concerned about consumers. It's not concerned about the brands. It's just a very convenient way. And I love it too. I'm very price and sensitive, though. A lot of people, like, you know, they care. They can save a hundred bucks here, hundred bucks there. They'll do that. But that's what that's kind of what we did is we got away, and we went more direct to consumer. And we cut a cost down, but we took a haircut of 4 million in revenue in a very short period of time. And that almost wiped us out. Some other things sort of happened at the same time. We were diversifying. We got into electric bikes with power electric bikes. We started a beach club, which is an event space. So we could office out of this event space so we would pay zero rent basically collect rent instead of pay rat. And so, I mean, that's the name of the game now is, okay, you're in this vulture of this world. Get your burn rate to as low as you can and try to survive. Because if you can survive an organically build a brand or 20 or 30 years, I think those direct to consumer brands that can do that are going to be the ones that's the future. So I want to talk more about that when we come back, we're at the end of part one here. Because a lot of people might be feeling like, you know, I'm being killed by Amazon. I used to, I even sold them on myself on Amazon. I was threatened by them and I sold stuff by them. And now I can't even afford to do business with Amazon because they're killing me on the other end. And I want to talk about what you're seeing is riding on the wall for not just retail, but for business, you know, like, what is the writing on the wall? I want to come back to that. Talk more about that. In part two. So I want to thank you for being with us for part one. If you have been enjoying, of course, you've been enjoying this. You've been enjoying this conversation. I want to make sure that you know how to get hold of Steven. And here's how you get a hold of him. We're going to ask him to tell you all about that. And of course we'll make sure it's all posted in the show notes. Stephen, you tell people how they can find out about you about your products and about all your wonderful resources. And of course about the book. Yeah. So I'm pretty easy to find on our websites because we are small companies things listed there. You can call up the number and talk to me so tower paddleboard dot com tower electric bikes dot com, the tower beach club dot com and our new sort of.

"I'm just delivering the news. It's happening. And then the next year we did 7 and a half million and probably about 4 million of that was. And that's the point the inflection point where the Amazon revenues were bigger than our own revenues. And I started to get worried, obviously you got this one big customer, something something happens there. And about the same time about 2016, Amazon, I think went to the dark side. There were always two sides within Amazon. It was Amazon retail, which operated like a Walmart where they would buy products and they would sell them and they would undercut your Matt pricing and they would just sort of abuse you. And then there was this marketplace where you could set your prices and do stuff like that. And Amazon took about a 15% fee. And today, in any of those marketplaces, Amazon takes about 50% of your revenue, not just from the fees, but they force you to advertise because it's a very crowded marketplace. So we've basically gone and around right back into retail. And none of the sort of the savings of globalization, the fact that we can make a sneaker in Asia for three bucks and it sold a 120 in retail, direct to consumers started to say, hey, we'll sell this sneaker for 20 bucks. That was there for a while. And then it disappeared, because now we're back to retail. You got to buy it through Amazon. It's a $120. Amazon takes 60 the sneaker. We're just back to retail. But, you know, 4 million in sales with Amazon. You jumped ship. We walked away. Yeah. And we intentionally walked away. You know, the writing on the wall was that they were taking more and more and now you're going to have to advertise and every year. And this is like in any advertising any online marketing that somebody finds. It works great for a couple of years. And then marketers find it and it gets ruined. And then it gets really expensive. It's like paper click in the 2000s, even before AdWords existed. We were doing it for a scent to click. And now you can't even make it work for most businesses unless you sell some kind of scammy product or there's a huge margins on some kind of supplement or something. You know, so we saw Amazon starting to go down that path. And it's funny because a lot of people today are all like, oh, I'm going to start myself on Amazon business. And I said that the sale, like three or four years ago, the only person who makes money on that is Amazon. And you.

"But now, if you think about that, 23% more productive, while homeschooling, looking after your kids, you know and having to stop the dog barking or whatever the hell else it is. You know, you've saved some time because you're not wearing pants, but that's about it, right? And it can be a so, you know, it's fascinating that this old industrial age thinking is that if you're in the office, you're productive, but it's not true. But let's take that over because again it's a constraint. It's a revolution that we had no choice but to be part of. And then you've got the other side of that. And that constraint is. There are the constraints given by others. IE, let's talk about this Amazon effect. You know, you were a darling from Amazon, as I said, Bezos talked about you in the stock holders letter. Shareholders. You and then you stop doing business with them. Talk to us about the Amazon effect and the impact on you and what you guys did with it. 'cause it was counterintuitive. Yeah, and this has been an evolution, right? Like they did a case study on tower paddleboard selling on Amazon at Harvard. And that was published. I want to say 2014, 2015 or something like that. And I go back and I sort of talked about they present that case to the class, then they do questions, whatever. I did that for a period of about 6 years. And it's the position towards Amazon's completely switched. And in this case, they talk about four different ways to work with Amazon. Don't work with them. Sell through them. So there's four different options. Each of those options was the correct choice in a different time. In a parent of 6 years, that's crazy how fast the world has worked. And in the most recent book on Amazon, by the guy who wrote the everything store, Brad stone, he sort of the big author that writes about Bezos, he's got about a page in there and my first quote in there is talking about how Amazon is this great company that really cares about brands. And my last quote is Amazon doesn't care whether you live or die. And really, that's how far their position is changed. And so it's incredible. And it's not just Amazon. It's the Internet world today. And I first saw this back in 1999 working for this Internet portal for the radiology community. And we went from startup 7 people to dominant industry leader in like three years where we took over. It was a news and information and education portal for that industry, but we went from nowhere to disrupting all of the trade magazines to basically having a monopoly on that market. Everything in the Internet world tends towards monopoly. You have Google having 80% 90% market share. Amazon, everything goes towards monopoly. And that's very dangerous because the advent of the Internet was sort of the disintermediation of the middleman. Everybody got out of the way. Yeah. The idea of democratizing this possibility, really. And it's become in many ways an industrial age, you know, like well, you had three or four people who were at the top of that game. And that's what you've got now with Google. You've got, as you said, with Facebook with Amazon. You know, it's like these guys own everything. Yeah, it's made the entire world like a little tiny town and you have one big company that runs everything. It's interesting you'll see how China reacts to this. Like China is very because they have their own little monopoly called China, right? And over there. Just little. And they go like other monopolies. So they just shut these things down because they're like, we know where this leads. In America, we're like, you know, we want to be democratic and free market or whatever. But it swung so far that the government does have to go in and break these things down because they're starting to be really bad. Repercussions from these monopolies. So you did something so you like we talked about. You were in there, you talked about Amazon being the fabulous company who cares about brands and now they don't give a shit and what do you live or die? So it's a complete flip. And you you were doing business with Amazon at, can you tell us the numbers? Yeah. Yeah, yeah. So I have context. Of course. What was this really like? We started in 2010 as a company. I think the first year we did 3000 and sales or something stupid, we've kind of started at the end. The next year we did a quarter of a million in sales. The next year, we did 1.3 million. That was like our third year in. And in that year, we did 250,000 on Amazon. And we had just got on to Amazon that year. So it was already 1520% of our revenue. But first year out, the next year we did 3.1 million total in the company and we did a million on Amazon. So our Amazon sales grew 400%. The next year we did a little over 5 million and we did like 2 million on Amazon. And so now Amazon is like 40% of our revenue. The next year, and that year actually, when we did 5 million, we were named, the number one fastest growing private company in San Diego. And we were number two 39 on the Inc 500. We were growing at such a rate because and it was largely, you know, it was a small company, like 5 people, but we were leveraging the reach of Amazon, where, at the time, Amazon was a dirty word by a lot of retailers for a different thing. It's like people are buying our products and they're selling it on Amazon and I was like, well, this is kind of the future. It was disrupting retail as Jeff Bezos likes to say, you know, I didn't put you out of business..

"Work less and they're not trying to work 60 70 hour weeks and get heart attacks. They're trying to do an efficient. And this just fit perfectly with their ideals. And that's why it was huge in Germany. So, you know, I mean, because I think everybody got sort of very attracted to the idea when Tim wrote the book the four hour workweek, right? And then we all realized, well, that's a lovely idea. And certainly I think in many ways, it's fueled the gig economy and it's helped a lot of people in that way. But for those of us who run businesses with employees, obviously that's not what we're doing. And though we may have got some great hacks from it, because I love the book. But this idea of a 5 hour work day, I mean, I think that that is revolutionary, purely and simply because we only have to I mean, you don't have to be a genius to look around, you know, just do your own research by just asking people, you know, how many people do you know who are completely burned out? Most people have burned out. Now you've got then on top of that you've got COVID came in. You've got the pandemic and the pandemic came in, and now we are here as we're doing this interview. It is in the last quarter of 2021. And we are in the great resignation as it's been named, where people are en masse walking away, saying, you know what? I'm done. I'm done. I don't want to do this job anymore. I found that I can stay at home. I find I can do some gigs at home, or I'm just not willing to do 60 hours a week anymore. So in many ways, this book, the 5 hour workday resonates even more now post pandemic. Are you are you hearing anything about it in that context in the context of today being, you know, this great resignation period? Yeah, there's a lot more interest in this. I mean, the book was published in 2016 and all of a sudden there's a lot more interest around it because what the book did was it put an it was the four hour workweek which you talked about. That was very formative book in my life as an individual entrepreneur. And that was basically opting yourself out of the system. A lot of those same principles are used in this book, but what we're doing is we're applying it to an organization or a nation. How do you just not get yourself not working and get everybody else to do your bidding, but how do you do this to an entire organization? So that's really what this book was about. So the 5 hours was a constraint we put on. And the power of startups is essentially constraints. This is why if you have three guys in a garage and you have a $100 million $100 million business with a thousand people working at it, you can almost bet the three guys in the garage are gonna disrupt them in today's world. And this is because of the constraints. They have no money, they have no people, you know, they have to find a hack if they're going to survive. Yes. And they find that hack and that hacks ends up disrupting the larger company, which has zero constraints on it. This is why governments very bad at business. There's just no constraints built into the system, right? Exactly. So the 5 hour work that was an artificial constraint, the pandemic was a forced constraint upon society. Okay. You can't travel for business. Okay, you want to interview somebody, you're going to have to do it by Zoom. Your meetings are going to have to be by Zoom. You guys can't go to the office. You have a restaurant. You can't have people sit down inside. Here's your constraints. Get creative. And that creativity builds productivity and it builds sort of better ways to do things. So there's a lot of good that's going to come out of the pandemic. I mean, there's a lot of bad that's going to come out of it, but it's a very tumultuous time. And it's interesting. And this is all the parallels between the 5 hour workday and what has happened with the pandemic and remote work is just throw a constraint on something and let's see what happens. And I think what it exposed is that a lot of people were working 60 or 70 hours in the office. Now they're working from home. They're working two or three hours. You know, watching their kids on the side and they're just as productive. Their boss has no clue. And some of these people have 5 jobs. I mean, I read about this humorous thing where people are making $750,000 a year because they just apply for a job, do nothing for two months and just keep applying for jobs until they get fired. And they can work multiple jobs from home, which is a nightmare for the company, right? Because you can't judge productivity. But this is the world that we're living in. Well, one of the things we know, actually, from the research because I remember having corporate leaders coming to me and going, like, you know, we're terrified of this. This work from home. We just don't know if people are just going to be lazy and not do anything. And what was actually discovered was that people were on average, it comes up to 23% more productive..

"Is a seasoned Internet entrepreneur on the cutting edge of direct to consumer revolution. Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together and help me to welcome the authors of 500 and. Thank you for having me on, though. Very welcome. How are you doing today? Oh, good, good. Good. Nice. San Diego. Yep. I'm sure it is. So the place I always like to start the show is, you know, in the context of leadership development. What is the question that we should be looking for answers to that we're not? You know, as somebody who is a consultant and adviser, a guide. I'm often brought in a master question and the reason I don't answer it is because they're asking me the wrong question. I can give them the answer, but it's the wrong question. So what do you think is the question we're not asking that we need to ask in order to develop ourselves as leadership and prepare ourselves for the monsters that are coming in the form of Amazon's et cetera? Yeah, I think we're just in a really tumultuous time in the world and in a very fast moving time. Like the business clock moves 5 times faster than it did 20 years and 20 years ago it moved 5 times faster than that. And so it's getting to such a speed that it's getting really hard to manage organizations, plan into the future and do anything like that. So I think as a leader, I believe number one trait you need to have is the ability to admit you're completely wrong and to completely rethink what you're doing because I mean too many people will just sort of stick their head in the sand and pretend what's going on is not going on. And see if they can sort of hold out. You want to declare disaster, get out in front of this. And be looking for the next thing. You know, I love that it's not just a willingness to admit that we're wrong, which is oftentimes difficult for leaders, but the willingness to say, I am going to be wrong. It's kind of future paste as well. And so let's get more information. Let's get better guidance. Let's put the ego to the side. That's a very good how can I put my ego to the side, admit that I'm wrong and so that we can survive. That's a really simple but powerful piece that I think is undermined. In the introduction I talked about how the daily mail had said you were the best boss in America. The German newspaper said the world's best boss. Why the world's best boss? You know, what are you doing? You're giving candies to everybody. And it's kind of comical because we're relatively small company here. And you're not running to easy to be a big boss. Company. Well, but still the world's best boss is still comparing you to all those across and I'm not saying I'm not putting on this person saying, okay, live up to it. But how did that happen? How do you end up getting that title? Yeah, I'll tell you where that all came from. It came from this book that we wrote about an experiment we were doing in 2015 at tower paddleboards. We moved the whole company to a 5 hour workday. 8 a.m. to one p.m. straight through no lunch. And when I rolled it out, we did like a three month test in this. And I said, okay, I'm going to give you your life back. But if you can't figure out how to be as productive or more productive than you were before, you know, walking out the door at one p.m., you're going to be fired. So I put pressure on people, but then I gave them their life back. And all of a sudden, you have this lifestyle where you're workday is better than most people's vacation week. I mean, most people don't even get out of bed until noon on vacation, right? Well, you're off work. You got the weekend still. And we did it for three months. And it honestly works so well that we continue to do it for about two years. And, you know, I had written some articles. I think in like Inc magazine or fast company over the years. And the first article I wrote about this little experiment that we were doing got like something like 10,000 social shares. I mean, it just resonated with people. I mean, everybody sort of realizes that being managed by the clock and working these 60 hour workdays in America was sort of a farce. We have all these we have nuclear power at our fingertips now with the Internet and all of these technology tools and all of these productivity tools. And if you use them correctly, you can work at ten times the speed. Right. Productivity in the U.S. between 1971 and 2011 was up 80%. And a lot of people are like, oh boy, you know, productivity is up. You know, I look at that number and I say, that is insane, right? Like it should be up a 1000% or you're doing something completely completely wrong here. So, you know, when we wrote that book, we really wrote the book just because those articles did well and we said, hey, this resonates with our brand or a stand up paddleboard company. We're work hard play hard, you know, knock off, go surfing. And we said we weren't really living our brand. So we started to live our brand with 5 hour work day. And then we wrote the book because we're going to put that in every paddleboard packets that we send out. To basically, because it dovetails perfectly with our brand. Then people would maybe pass that on to their friends and say, hey, here's just cool company out in San Diego that's doing this crazy experiment with the workday. We think it's cool experiment. So that was the idea, but when we actually launched the book, it went viral, and it went viral around the world. We did. It probably more than a hundred interviews. You know, 5 or 6 national interviews in the U.S. on TV. And then internationally, it took hold in different parts. A lot of places in Europe really just sort of love this idea both those quotes about the best boss were from a European perspective. Because in the U.S. it was a British newspaper, one was an American. One was a German newspaper. But an American newspaper might say, you lazy Boston. Exactly. The press we were getting in America was so funny. It was so different from culture to culture. In the U.S., the press I was getting was very hardcore conservative press that brought me in and tried to say this socialist is this is a joke. He's going to fail. And I would have to spin it on air and get them. By the end of the interview, a lot of them were like, yeah, well, that actually kind of makes some sense, you know? But in Europe, they kind of loved it right off the bat. And especially like France, they loved it. My friends would joke with me. And said, of course, they like that, you know, socialistic, you know, nonsense, right? And I said, yeah, that's interesting. But you know who really loves it is Germany. And Germany loves it because Germany prides themselves on being efficient. They're a much smaller population than the U.S., but they're like, I don't know, the fourth or 5th biggest economy in the world. So they're very efficient with what they what they do, right?.

The Facebook Whistleblower Is a Pro-Censorship Czar

"I turned to. Cbs to see what was on. And it was this. Facebook whistle blower found the whole thing to be really strange very staged very scripted. And so you have this whistle blower going on sixty minutes and said okay. This doesn't seem right just the way she was answering questions it was she kept on saying i want what's best for the company wants what's best for facebook and i think they're getting in their own way. So that's strange whistle blower the keeps on saying that you actually want what's best for the company that's kind of a weird way to frame it and so then today all of a sudden the whistle blowers in front of congress. That happened quickly. So you go from sixty minutes to congress and forty eight hours thirty six hours not even who put all that together. Is there a democrat staffer. That wants her to go in front of congress and so this woman who is testifying francis how gin. She's a thirty seven year old former facebook product manager who worked on the civic integrity issues at the company. Now mind you yesterday. Facebook was down mysteriously for five or six hours. And there is a theory out there. And i just want to reiterate it unsubstantiated and purely conjecture purely speculative that all of this is tied together that there might have been some sort of algorithm ix system reset within facebook which is why facebook went down for five hours yesterday. Why none of the people in charge of facebook seemed that confused or irritated when facebook went down. Purely unsubstantiated and speculative but it's interesting and it would make sense in a certain particular theory of analysis so francis hogan gets in front of facebook and she says something repeatedly look in order to save facebook from the children in order to save facebook or save children from facebook. We need more government regulation to monitor the political discourse on facebook so basically she is a pro censorship.

"Texas is now in the middle of the greatest constitutional question of the modern era and outside of the constitutional question because the constitution is a moral document.

Dhs and border patrol sat there and did nothing now ought to be very clear. Dhs border patrol our american heroes. They are under orders to do nothing. It's not on them but the people did do something. The border patrol that decided to get on a horse get criticized by the national media of whipping these criminal haitians even though it's a rain.

Pros Versus Joes

Poker With Presence

03:50 min | 9 months ago

Pros Versus Joes

"Thing. I've seen quite a bit of in live poker. Is this attitude. This idea that the pro players are just better overall as human beings than the wreck players. Because they're able to do this thing where they can hold their emotions in check at the table and not do things that they regret not let the game get away from them so that they can continue to play pretty solid poker and earn enough money to make a living and what i've heard a lot of or seen a lot of. Is this kind of snickering behind the backs of recreational players. Where the pros adopt this attitude of arm so much better than him because look at him. He can't even lose two pots without going until oh look at that. He lost that one hand in then the next and he just gave it away. I would never do that. And so what i want to say about. That is those exact same people who are kind of talking shit about the wreck player businessman behind his back this exact same player quite often in order to hold their game in check in order to not do terrible things in terms of their poker player they end up having to go home and smoke bunch of we'd drink a bunch of beer or park themselves in front of the television for five hours just so that they can kinda let the steam off from all the emotions in the poker game that they were some -verting so they're not feeling their feelings in the game. They're not really letting that flow with presence and connection as a result. Everything's kind of blocked up and they're feeling quite tense quite miserable during the actual poker session. Because there's a lot of things that are going on in the game and it can be quite stressful and produce a lot of anxiety but instead of feeling those feelings and processing them as they come with they do instead is box it all away. Put it away to deal with later. I'm not going to deal with this now. I'm just going to do my job. I'm going to hold it in. And when i go home. I'm gonna release all that stress. I'm gonna do that thing. That's how they're going to deal with those emotions and so the funny thing is that this is literally the exact same behavior. Because if you're talking about the businessman or the person with the nine to five who holds it all in at work so that they don't yell at their boss so that their job performance doesn't suffer so that they can keep collecting their paycheck and supporting themselves in their family. Where does that person go to blow off steam to move the emotions through to deal with them. They go to the poker room and then they go and play bunch of hands that they should they get too aggressive. They call off too much money when they shouldn't as soon as anything happens at the poker table. That's not in their favor right. And so what they're doing is blowing off there and so there is actually the office for the pro and so the pros doing the exact same thing just in different places in so they're the pro is holding it together so that they don't blow their living so that they can continue earning money so that they can be respect. What work and not screw up their financial situation and then they take it home where they do the exact same behaviors just in a different thing. The context is exactly the same. The actual thing that they're doing the blow of this team is different. And so if you want a different way to go about it what i can offer you this idea that the more that you can be open to feeling your feelings as they come no matter what you're doing no matter who you're with you'll actually find that it's actually not going to be detrimental to performance in fact the more that you can get friendly with your feelings as they come have them be no big deal. The more that you can actually create presence and flow and move that energy ability to channel into higher performance than you've ever channeled into before with all of that energy of emotions comes the ability to use it to perform at your highest levels but most people want box it up. Put it away for later and then smoke away. Drink it away gamble it away do

We meant to stay for just two days. We were trapped in herat four or five days.

The Biden Debacle Continues

"The biden debacle continues in afghanistan. The withdrawal is a disaster. The biden administrations exit has been a catastrophe. Goof-balls on the left are doing. Now they're pivoting to trying to say well the it's still a big airlift. We're getting a lot of people out of their senator mitch. Mcconnell with dana perino and bill hemmer yesterday on fox news as this is one of the greatest foreign policy disasters in american history. I think it's important to remember where we were a few months ago before the president's reckless decision to leave we only had twenty five hundred troops there. We had lots of single american Personnel military personnel in a year. The taliban barbarians were not in charge of the country. We were keeping the lid on an al qaeda was not there so the decision to pull out was gargantuan mistake in a opinion having made that decision You'd have to conclude these guys an organized a two car funeral. I mean here's where we are. The president needs to forget about the august thirty first deadline. We need to send in enough american personnel military personnel to rescue our people and by the way they're more american soldiers there now than before. The president made the decision to leave. Wow it's it's unbelievable. Kaley mcenaney pointed something out to jesse waters a theme. That i keep coming back to. We wouldn't be seeing this under the trump administration. We're eight months into a biden president. Jesse wrap your head around that we still have three years and four months left look when president trump was president. You didn't see crisis after crisis. You just didn't see it. I shudder to think about what it would have been. Like under joe biden. We've seen afghanistan blow up crime ministries. You named it all. What would have been like. Because i was in the white house when it was pretty scary times. We weren't sure if we'd have enough ventilators but we were able to produce it with the private sector. I watched president trump overseeing vaccine in record time produce. Four working therapeutics. Do you think joe biden could have done any of that. The answer is absolutely not.

And i've only been here for a short period of time but i've seen it sorta descended into madness. It seems like it's getting worse and just about the last four years. I've been here even in four years. Which isn't really that long time. It has gotten worse with the covert lockdowns and the restrictions and the mask mandates. Things have gotten even worse san francisco which is right up north from us about five hour drive as put in vaccine passports in within their city. So this means that. I think it's going into effect later in september. But this means that if you go to jim in indoor restaurant Some sort of entertainment you have to be vaccinated new york city. Just put out their list of places that you have to be vaccinated for as well and then palm. I believe the same thing. I can only imagine that. Los angeles is not going to be beat out by new york in terms of leftism and they are going to choose to do the exact same thing. The entire state of california just made it so that you if you have a an event with over a thousand people at it then you all have to be vaccinated as well how they actually enforce something like that. I don't know. I'm just only going to be doing events for nine hundred ninety nine people like this in the future. But how are they going to enforce that. I don't know but it seems to me that if you go on twitter and you look at the comments underneath these announcements.

Are Internships Worth It?

"Wanna talk about a question that we received on instagram from one of our listeners. They were given an opportunity to do an internship out an organization and it's an organization that they would have loved to actually work for but it wasn't a paid internship was unpaid internship. And they asked about whether or not that would be kind of devaluing themselves to to take that or or whether the the other things that come along with it that kind of do. They outweigh the pay. So first of all have you. Have you worked at engine ship first of all in your life and have you ever had to do anything that you maybe you thought was like in spirit of a greater good but you didn't know whether it was worth. It is a little bit of an interesting concept especially based upon like what is the internship. What's the company. what are you doing for you. Know what is your. What is your intent with the work itself in for a lot of times. The internship really just about gaining experience or building network. Like that's really what it comes down to Especially when it's not paid you know like you're really just trying to get around potentially people or places that you really want to know to be around long term and potentially get a real job in in work for the organization as far as doing extra work and You know doing things kind of beyond a day job absolutely. I i kind of subscribed to that in general that kind of ideas. That if you are if you're lifelong learner if you're motivated by self developments If you're listening to this podcast now guess what that. That's kind of a sign that you are one of those You're probably always looking for little bits and pieces of things If it's a job it's a little bit more of a responsibility or project or something that you can get involved in if it's not at the job and something else that you do on the side so i believe always in finding ways to add value fighting ways to learn things or gain experience Through opportunities present themselves but again. Like that's kind of what i subscribe to and i've also met a lot of people that don't subscribe to that that are just like hey i have a job. I get paid from this time to that time. I do exactly what's outlined in my job description and if the estimate is for me to get this work done in six hours i turn it in at five hours fifty. Nine minutes Because that's what's expected of me. And i moved forward and they just look at you know a job as a job and so you know i i can see both sides of it but i think specific to the to the The internship thing. I think is a lot to talk about their In regards to just that idea of how much are you willing to put an effort into something without either it being your job or without getting paid for

It looks like i'm frantically looking through the house and and he's just kind of following me around your the ones frantic and what is the defendant's very very calm and have no showing no remorse concern for his daughter.

If you were searching for your child you wouldn't be doing laundry. But finding sharon was the top priority and the responding officers minds wesley's wife seaney gave them a photo of sharon and so they started to canvas the neighborhood knocking on doors.

But but it was a it was a a dance contest. I had always like Michael Jackson. I actually won the contest because I had learned how to do the moonwalk. No. Nothing. You remember the show spin city? I love that. I did like that show except I thought I thought they could have done a better. I thought they did a good. But I thought it could have been better. Because there are there are a lot more gaffes. I think that they could have could have spun. I think oh man, but they couldn't have written this. I don't care. How talented the writers were or are couldn't have written this part of it again is as you've said is we've been having the discussion off the air is about how the media how the media thinks. And and you mentioned to me, the just the the Washington Post, and and how they covered the fact that they, you know, the governor had an emergency meeting with the staff, but how they had to write it. Because the the thought you, and I would you and I would have written and said he had a meeting with the staff. How did they write that? Well, here's the line in. It's it's just bizarre. Because I I read the, you know, the the hill had quoting and and using the the wash. Washington Post story as their basis, but I came across this line. And I thought okay, I've gotta read it. How it's written in the post. I went to the post story. People familiar with the meetings said the governor had not reached decision. It was unclear who was present. But the group included senior staffers of color. Well, of course, it did. Was he contemplating on leaving them out with magin? Listen, we would like these senior staffers of color to please step out of the room. It included senior staffers of light light someone's actually asking that. We'll did it include senior staffers of color. I don't know find out from our sore. What's the governor expected to omit them into this meeting senior staff assigned on the door? Sorry, no senior staffers of colors of color allowed. Are you kidding me? Oh, my I'm sorry. That's how the media covers this because someone had to ask that question. Well, we need to point out that senior staffers of color were there. 'cause someone's in the newsroom at the post going. Hey, do we know of any senior staffers of color were there? So I'm I'm reading and I had to get through this without laughing. Dan, gainer groundhog date passengers keeps messing up the north and stories. He said this week was a lesson in priorities when a prominent democratic governor one on radio and appeared to suggest killing newly born babies it hardly made a blip in press, then the media mob form on the news service that the same governor had a racist photo on his college yearbook page, and he goes, they go through all the specifics of and continues here Democrats watch in horror as northern held one of the most disastrous press conferences in the history of television, keeping the issue alive.
