How live coding can level up your development (Jesse Weigel)
"So I, want to switch gears and talk about live coding, which is something that you do. You are a youtube live coding streamer for free coat cab, which sounds terrifying. How did you get into voting? So when I was at this job, it was at a university I. decided that I wanted to collaborate more with the computer science department. I wanted to help the computer science students start to build a resume before they graduated and I thought it would be cool to get some of their ideas because I knew my own gaps in my learning, not having a computer science degree. So I thought we can kind of help each other out in the maybe they would have a lot of knowledge that I didn't, and I would have more practical not. That, they hadn't yet acquired about just like getting things done in making live in applications. So I decided to record myself doing some work and then put a link to it in the the facebook group for the Computer Science Club. And My boss thought that was a good idea and you said, yeah, let's let's do that and I had always been developing everything I. Could Open source on get hope anyway. So that wasn't really an issue and I did some live streams and I didn't I'd never livestream anything before like I really didn't know what I was doing the first live streams were. You couldn't see the code even the the the video quality was terrible the phone I had two small. So it was, it was pretty bad So I went on the Free Co Camp Forum and I a post saying. Just. Here's what I'm trying to do, and I don't know what I'm doing. If anyone has some time, please check out one of my live streams and at appreciate any advice that you have. And I ended up getting a bunch of people watching and giving advice. But probably, the most important view that I had was from Bo Corns who's in charge of the Youtube Channel for Free Code. camp. Alcohol. had asked if I would be interested in doing. Some live coating on the Free Co Camp Channel and I. You know, of course, 'cause my channel, add maybe three subscribers at the time in the Free Co. camp. Channel at the time had maybe somewhere between fifty thousand, one, hundred, thousand subscribers gone up significantly since then we're over a million. Maybe three years ago. So after I did that Quincy who's the head of recode camp also, ill, he watched the stream and he said I really like this and new said, you know you could do this? You know however many times a week you one. So I started live coding for at least an hour a day five days a week. Monday through Friday. How? Is a lot of time that is dedication yet in would really helped was I lies streamed my work. So it wasn't prepared beforehand or rehearse. It was whatever I had to work on that day. I would try to pick whatever I thought would be the most exciting in helpful for other people to see. And I would lie stream that portion of my work. And they were real projects that I was working on, and thankfully you know my boss was just super excited about it and saw this as a great opportunity for publicity for the university. which it really was for a tiny university in Ohio, the logo of the university was seen by people all over the world. So we definitely got some publicity and we also got a lot of people contributing code. So since it was open source. We had a nice community of developers from all over the world that would contribute code. Actually, add a developer. Believe was fourteen years old when he started watching the show from the Himalayas was one of the top contributors on most of the projects and he was so good. He's fine. The Best Coder I've ever worked with. He was so good. I would be in the middle of a livestream talking through a problem of. So here's what, I'm trying to do and I would look over the live chat and there would be five or six messages in all caps saying check my request. And I would look. In, he would have already solved the problem in submitted requests. Yeah It was so. He would often call me out on things. I was doing wrong and I tell you I. I kept in mind all the time. How young he was. I if it were an older person, I may not have taken it so well. A. Little Bit. Yeah. It it did. But I just imagined that he was young. US very excited about what he was doing us very skilled. With it and to be honest, I love what up so much during the live streaming so much more than I ever thought I mean, well. I never thought anybody would really watch it maybe a few computer science. So like. Like maybe one or two people watching to now having hundreds of people you're watching, live all typing and contributing code, and then my work day changed dramatically. It went from me coding most of the day on my own to me spending my mornings, reviewing pool requests in merging them, and then spending my afternoons live coding. And that was like my daily work, we would regularly have you know maybe. Somewhere between like five and a dozen contributors to each one of the projects that I was working on and I, I'd like to think that it was a pretty fair exchange that I would. I would give a shoutout to everybody that contributed in review their pool requests on on air just to let people know what they had done. So I kinda helped. These people who were volunteering their code, build up their portfolios and get some exposure on the Free Code Camp Channel, and then in turn they helped make my projects better. And and I learned so much because I couldn't merge
How Vivian Kaye Turned Her Hair Care Needs into a Multi-Million Dollar Biz
"K. is a fourteen year veteran entrepreneur who has bootstrapped to companies from the ground up for the last seven years. She has strictly focused on the e-commerce world where she built kinky curly Yacky, which offers textured hair extensions for black women to over one million in annual revenue Vivian has been featured on shop. Expert Academy Series Ted Conferences the way we worked and has been featured and digital publications such as Black Enterprise Magazine and refinery twenty nine Vivian, welcomed being boss. Thank you for having made such a pleasure to be here. Vivian! We've gotten to know you a little bit over the past couple of days. You've popped in on some of our sessions. You've been offering us so much guidance and. Radiance and your smarts and all of the things. So now I'm dying to hear your story like, can you, can we? Let's rewind a little bit and we're GonNa. Get into all of the wisdom that you have to share, but I want to know more about your entrepreneurial journey, so tell us like. Where did it begin? How did you get to where you are now being on Ted and refinery twenty nine this morning i saw on your instagram. You're on somebody's vision board like talk about goals. How did you get there? Honestly I really don't know. Because, it's not like being an entrepreneur was a big thing right, so you know back when I was growing up? Being an entrepreneur was for people who didn't have jobs. And so I kept you know I was always in jobs where the one person department one Person Marketing Department and then you know I was at a job one day and decided to start side hustling. So I started out my first business as a side hustle and then while I was running that side. Hustle I got fired for sorry I got laid off. That's the momentum. Laid off from that job, and then at that point I said. You know what let me just let me just go for it. Just go for it and do whatever I need to do. 'cause I'm young I'm free and I can. I can do whatever I want. And while I was running that business I started running, and then I had started a side hustle with kinky curly Yacky, so it was like I had businesses running at the same time so it wasn't something that I set out to do, but with both businesses I set out to solve my problem. And at the time I didn't realize that that was the best way to start a business. But that's what it was I. set out to start to solve my own problem or to solve a pain point that I saw people were having so so that's how my entrepreneurial journey began. What was the first sight hustle? The first sight has a wedding decorator. So all I would do is go in and decorate people's wedding so instead of being on a an event planner doing you know doing all those little things I focused on one thing and what it was I decided so there's a whole story behind that so I'm one of four girls and I'm the second the number two. So my older one was getting there. My older sister was getting married and she hired a decorator who who sent you decorate the wedding for? Say a thousand dollars right, so she paid her deposit. Everything was good, but two weeks before the wedding she came back and said I need another thousand dollars, but didn't have a reason why. Right so I thought well. Of course, she couldn't have paid for A. She couldn't afford to pay her, so she ended up having to hire different decorator that decorated did a crack tastic job. And so I'm like. Why is it so difficult? Why can't decorators just say that they're going to do X. Y.? And this is what it costs and Bass what they do and keep it simple, so then I thought well. I'm just GONNA I was been into decor and HGTV when TLC used to beat more home decor than reality so I would So I started I decided I wanted to be a wedding decorator I. wanted to create weddings that were simple, but fabulous so I would ask. My bride's like okay, so do you remember the last wedding that you went to? And they would say yes, will do you remember the centerpieces or the decor? Remember. It was pretty I'm like that's what we're going to do. So instead of spending mortgage down payments on decor. Why not create something that is memorable, but affordable and people just remember it was pretty, and that's it so that's what I set out to do. And it was a it was a great success, and this was a business that I started with no prior knowledge like I just figured it out as I was going along. And so I can tell that you're a branding lover at heart because you're like, forget pretty. I want memorable and I think this is going to be a thread that we we've through all of your stories, but before we get to connecting those thoughts. I went to hear more about kinky curly Yucky, so what was? What was the problem that that was solving? And how did well I I'm the worse doing I always do this. I always asked two questions in a row. So question one is more about kinky curly yacky. What problem did that solve? And then I'm really curious to hear a little bit more about how I do think that whenever we have side hustles and day jobs and we're trying on a bunch of different things they all start to. Tie together in some ways like we're always learning lessons from one thing to the next. I'm also really curious to hear. What lessons did you learn from wedding decorating that you're able to take to kinky curly yacky. That's a great question. Okay, so the first question was How can you KEROUAC even started? About problem so the problem was I as I was a wedding decker, and so I'm I. I actually live in Toronto, so it's one of the most Toronto Canada, and it's one of the most diverse cities in the world so I was doing everyone's wedding from you know the Muslims to South Asian to Indian to everyone, everyone's wedding so This is going to be a bit explain if anyone really wants to know the real detailed answer. I could always do that at a later point, but. For Black Women. We have to present. We have to show up in the world in a certain way, which is quote unquote presentable so most a Lotta Times wearing our hair, as it is naturally with kinky curly with kinky hair It's not professional. Why don't go professional? So I wanted something that looks like my hair. But would protect my hair because our hair is not suited to this north. American environment, it's it there's not moisture. It dries out really quickly but anyways I wanted something that looked like my hair and know what asked me where I bought it because I didn't want that whole. Nikki manashe thirty two inches of blonde wig down to my I wanted something that looked presentable. So I searched and searched and searched for something that looks like my hair, and then when I found it I weren't to a meet up. To just like a general networking event, and another black woman came to me and said WHO's your hairdresser? And what is your regimen for keeping your hair like that? And I said girl. This is a wave. And she was like I would buy. And this was in this was in two thousand eleven, so I thought well if she would buy it. And I bought it. There's gotta be at least a dozen. Other women would buy it to now. When I was looking to solve my problem, I saw I saw the gap in the market I. Thought There are no companies just selling kinky hair, but I was already running the successful decor business. I was buying my coach bags. I was going on vacation. I was happy with that, and then I decided then I thought well. You know you know. Weddings have a down sees. It feels like you know what I can't like. Itching the back of my brain, so then I said to myself you know what in the down season of of of Vivian the core I'm going to launch his company and I literally made up the name while I was in the shower like I was like Yankee curly. Jackie, O okay and I bought a domain name, and I launched it in December two thousand twelve, and it immediately took off. Okay so I actually do want to hear the details about the actual hair. You don't mind no worries because okay, so I remember talking to emily in the early days of ALMANAC supply company, which is her business and she was trying to find very specific candle containers to pour her candles into, and we talked about some deep googling like how you just have to search like. Get real good at searching. So how did you well? I guess two questions? Are It was a we've, but it looks natural so I think this goes back to that almost that brandon conversation of like it doesn't have to look quote Unquote Professional. Let's make it memorable like let's just make it bigger. Bigger let's make it more of a statement. which I think is so cool so I guess I have two questions here one. How did you find the natural hair? If there is a gap in the market? How did he find a? We've that had the natural texture and then in that might be getting too much of your secret sauce like you might not have to answer that one, but like how do you? How do you find the materials and then guess my next question is? How did you start to then scale and expound upon that not having any experience in that industry so how? Sold! The key was that I was trying to solve my own problem so What I was doing is I. Would I was doing that deep googling I was in facebook groups I was on hair care black hair care forums. Just you know just. Talking with other people and people of course at that time, a lot of people were sharing okay well. I bought this here I. Bought that there, and so that I would of course make note that, because again at the time I was not looking to start another business I was just looking to solve my own problems, so I wrote. You know I would contact every. Every single factor, every single manufacturer, every single website that said they would do kinky hair, and the once I found the one I was like. Wow, this, actually a pretty decent I would ask them to tweak it a little bit. Just a suit, my needs and they did it and I was like okay and I thought well after the girl confirmed my idea. I decided okay well. Let me see the state. Factory can still do it and I would order the same product under different names and asking to do different things to it, and they would do. So I thought okay. Okay. I'm onto something here. And so that's how that's how I was able to. I guess perfect the product because again. I I like to get high on my own supply, so that's the beauty of the businesses that I M my customer. I know what I'm looking for I know what problems I'm looking to solve I. Know What my pain points would be. And what other black women's pain points would be, and the only person who's able to address that is me. So of course I use that to my advantage You know to tell my brand's story but at the time again I listen, I'm an immigrant. I'm a college dropout and now a single mother. So I had no clue. About all these storytelling and branding mark I had no clue I just thought it was just doing what kind what came naturally to me. So so how I scaled that business well, I think one of the mistakes that a lot of people are making in starting businesses that they don't have an audience for the product that they have and so then what I had done again I inadvertently created an audience by by being on those facebook facebook. Forums a facebook groups that had black hair care forums because I was shining. Just being Vivian online people remembered me. So bad, and the funny thing was what I, when I when the business launched, no one knew it was me I didn't. I wasn't. My face wasn't the base of the brand it was just like here's some products. You guys will love Ed Oh. My Gosh and people bought it, but what happened was. I was facebook group and someone I didn't do. The WHO is on the back end of my website do that. Who has privacy on the back end of my product? Someone in one of the facebook groups created a fake place book profile and posted all my information in those facebook groups. Saying this is the person who owns that brand. So what she meant. To to like to help me to make me fail actually was what turned my like. What is what actually skyrocketed my business? Because once people found out that I was the person behind that brand, they were like well. Shoot I'm going to almost support her because she's this. She's that I remember she's Great. She's awesome, and that's what took off so I realized then that. My brand, my person like why. Is What is going to help me succeed in business. Amen I. Resonate so much with what you're saying and. I have branding agency as well and really focus on personal branding and I i. feel like one a lot of people always tell you you need to identify your customer and what they need, but I always think it really does start with you if you can start with what you need you like, you can trust that. We're not all that different and that if you can just get specific about yourself, you're going to be getting specific about your dream customer. Customer so we are so aligned there and then the fact that I mean it was an unfortunate, and you know really inappropriate way to learn the power of personal branding, but you did learn the power of personal branding, so that is incredibly exciting and I. WE'RE GONNA dig into more about like how you leverage that and who you are, and what you do, and how you bring it into your business and draw boundaries and all of the things but. We do have an attendee question that I. Want to slide in here if we may. I'm in this question is from. Death and I think especially for creatives. Who is you know most of our crowd here then we add like to hear your. Hear your thoughts on this, so here's your question. so Vivienne said she had the hair problem herself and chose to solve it, but what kept her on that path instead of ending up as an all purpose, beauty, Guru or similar. To be honest. Hair is not my jam. So really what I? How I think of it is just the ends to a means way or means to an end it's the means to an end, so my real goal is to give black women confidence to show up as they are in the world. So hair just so happens to be the the means to that end. So how I just stick to hair you know I'm pretty. I'm pretty good at focusing on the one thing like it's what I've learned is You know niche of and that's my I will preach about I say niche, but its niche. You know it's either. We can use them interchangeably potato potato. Okay, so with me I. Find that if You speak to a very specific group of people, and you sell them a very specific product. They will be your most loyal fans. They are cheaper to market to they. Are you know more about them? Especially when you already are them so for me that makes it very easy to stick to that one thing because I know that very well and I can speak to it now. Let's just by started venturing into. Say. Make up girl I'll even know how to put on eye shadow right so it wouldn't. It wouldn't. I wouldn't have authentic voice I can't lend that often into city to that product, but what I do know is hair. I'm not a hairdresser. I'm not a hair stylist. Because I had a passion for solving my own problem so that I could show up as quote. Unquote professional in the world. I can solve the I know what looks professional for me. You know I learned you don't like it. That's your problem. Not Mine Right, so we as a black women. What started in two thousand? I want to say. In Two thousand eleven two thousand twelve. Is that Youtube? We started all jumping on youtube and teaching each other how to care for our hair. We stopped putting before. We're used to put chemicals in our hair in order to straighten it to look to fit that European standard of beauty. But then we were like you know what I'm tired of that crap. We're tired of that. We don't want that if that's not Howard. The hair grows out of our heads. You're either going to accept this as we are or not right so so the goal of. Of making black women confident in how they show up in the world is really what keeps me focused on here. There's other people and I and I realized. I'm really good at that, so if I just if you just focus on the one thing that one goal your why. Then you're. You'RE NOT GONNA get distracted by all the Shiny Mirror. The the shiny objects that are floating around, because yeah I could make some easy money doing makeup, but I'm not passionate about that I. don't that doesn't that's not my jam? I love the what you did was instead of doing. The sheds are what people may have expected you to stuck with thing I think oftentimes people in this crowd see either see someone who have sort of diverged from that path, or so. They're thinking okay I. Should I should diversify as well or they sort of get these little inklings of like going to different. Different things I love that what you've done is just focused. You focused on doing the one being amazingly well exactly, and that's and that's the one, if I had to give one piece of advice to anyone is do that one thing and do it really well before you move onto anything else because you know doing that. One thing really really really really really really. Really really really advising that really do that. One thing really well. Guess what you can do anything you can apply that same, so that's what I learned in billions, the core I learned that if I kept it simple and I just focused on providing my brides with this one product and do it really well, it would speak for itself, so I took that same. Simple yet fabulous and I applied it to. Kinky Curly Aki. So people like what can I all? I'm explained the Kinky curly Yacky. What is that, so? It's Kinky kinky hair, and it's curly for curly hair, and then there's Yacky. So? Yuck, so yacky actually is short for Yak, or against the long overreact so back in the day when they wanted to mimic black women's hair straightened. They use hair from Jack the animal. So the industry just put an eye on the end and call the Yacky, so you would know what Jackie was. If you were a black woman, so any block won't be like. Oh! You got that Yacky in and so it's a sort of tongue in cheek, so you would have to be part of that target demographic in order to understand the name of the the name of the brand clear I love that. You're very specific about your dream. Customer to effect. Because I was her I get hot on my own supply. So at some point, did you end up closing the decorating business I did? I closed it I. Shut it down back in two thousand fifteen, and the only reason why I did is because I got practice. More. Yeah so I launched kinky curly. Aki in the summer of two thousand twelve by July of two thousand, thirteen. I was in the business was doing really well at that point? It was I was just doing just under four hundred thousand dollars in sales. and I found out in July I was pregnant. Anti ago. And so you know with my? With wedding core I had brides booked a year out. Right so so I was still doing those weddings, still going to the still going to meetings breastfeeding doing weddings that type of thing. And then I started I wasn't really paying attention to what can carry Aki was doing I didn't know all these numbers until later on because I was doing it just because I just loved it and I was learning about H. Tim Allen Marketing in Seo and I just I just threw myself into it, but wasn't paying attention to the numbers. I just knew it was doing well. But then when I found out, I was pregnant. I was like okay. Okay, the being you got to the chill, you gotta chill. You can't be can't be doing everything and then in two thousand, fourteen march, two, thousand, fourteen I, gave birth to my son and he's been wonderful ever since he's six now. and then I saw what can curly accu was doing I thought. Ma'am really half assing it. What happens if I put my full ass into this? And once I did again. It took off, so so yeah, okay so. I I know that whenever entrepreneurs are listening to this or site hustlers listening to this. They're like wait a second. She accidentally created a half a million dollar business and wasn't even paying attention. So how does that happen? Did was that like word of mouth or referral? Launches You have specific marketing plans. What did that look like for? You had none of that I had was what people knew me from in the facebook groups, and and because I was also also go. Gee of the niche, their niche of just selling kinky hair did not exist before I. Start before I created my company. So because I saw a gap in the market I'm A. I pioneered that so any other company that you now see selling kinky hair is because of me. And so then because I was first to market with that bat just. Exploded because that's women were looking for. I was solving their problem and on top of that I looked like them. Right so it's like they were like girl. You know, 'cause. One of the things would be like girl I was tired of the whole African in the front, an Indian in the back. If you're a black woman, you know what that means, so what that means is we're all from. Black women are from the African for so we had these tight kinky air, and then we are putting on these silk weaves. I didn't blend with our hair. So I was tired of the whole African in the front and Indian in the back, and that resonated with people, so it just and I didn't do I didn't i. Here's another thing I just literally launched with one product. I locked to one product and I only had three lancs. I only had three lengths. I remember at the time, and someone would buy one I would take that money in going by two. And that's how I built. My business I didn't I. Bootstrap I started from zero. I took no outside capital I didn't have any debt I literally started from the bottom. And was it easy. No, no, it wasn't. Is that possible ABSA freaking move?

So I, WanNa talk a little bit about authenticity because you. I feel like that's the core of who you are is being who you are even whenever it's not. By design, you know it just kind of showed up that way. You are your own client and I think that's one of the greatest ways to be authentic when it comes to creating what you do. So. Let's let's talk a little bit about that. Why do you think that autheniticity and being true to yourself and using your own personality is important for anyone who is building a business or a brand? Because people don't necessarily. I think one of the biggest things people need to keep in mind as people aren't necessarily buying the product. As you can see, it's not like I'm the first person to ever sell Kinky, textured hair extensions and back. There were tons of companies that had it, but what they did. is they buried it underneath the silkier texture, so not the first. To Sell Kinky textured hair extensions. But what people don't realize that people aren't necessarily buying the product. They're buying the person or they're buying the emotions. They're buying lifestyles behind the product. So brand is where you can tell that story so branding will help you. To, help you, stand out in the crowd. It will help people remember and especially when you have a story that resonates with someone one. That's what they're buying into. They could care I. Mean Yeah, you could, you could be selling something. That's more expensive and more has a tools unless this unless that, but what they're buying is the person or the idea or the emotions behind. It so I that's what I realized very quickly is especially in the wedding decor. Businesspeople clouds giving. You made me you made it. It feel so simple. You made me feel so comfortable, and you made this process so easy for me and I realized. It doesn't go learn how to do all the fancy. You know all the fancy. Do Decor all I want but that's not what they care about. They care that I made them feel good about the money that they were spending made their wedding. Feel pretty like I made them feel that way. So that's that's really what you should focus on. I love that you said that you're not the first person to sell kinky natural hair extensions, but that it's been buried, and so you took a product unique in on it, and then you highlighted it, and it's beautiful, and you're owning it and you're helping. Other women own it I'm curious, little bit with some of the activism around. Natural Hair California has banned hair discrimination. It's something that I was so excited to see and when it continue to see, are there any levels of like activism or do you think even products like yours have helped? Create that kind of. Activism you know? Do you think that it's like no? This is who we are and this is just as professional as any other hair well I. Think the problem was that we were letting you know black women in general were we were leading the world? Tell us what was beautiful. And you know Youtube and you know the the beauty of the Internet was us being able to see each other people outside of our own communities, and how they look. How many rock their hair and all that jazz so I think really it. It just helped people just be who they wanted just to be who they are like just to be their authentic selves and truth be told, and it does just women in general, because even society tells us. Women were supposed to look like like I'm pretty sure after this quarantine thing has done. There's going to be a lot of people who were blonde. That aren't blonde anymore, right? But you know with black women where we're especially, you know we. Don't want to say Alison to say hated on because of how we look, and so then this i. feel just the way to just listen world we have to teach. We have to teach the world. This is how we are. If they don't like it. That is their problem. Because this is how my hey, this is how the hair grows out of my head naturally. It's curly it goes. It goes to the heavens because that makes me closer to God in the Sun. Right, as so if that's not something you think is professional, I think you really need to reexamine what your idea professional is. Karen sorry. Goes show that Chad. Presentation matters absent. That is what the Internet gave us. It gave us access to each other and to To all kinds of beauty and bodies and ways of being right, and it allowed us to see ourselves and others, and we can't help it, but need permission you know, and that permission sometimes simply in representation I have so many role models where I'm like. Oh, I didn't know I could do that until I saw them do it. And you're providing tools for that awareness as well which I think is like that's an important part of this, too. It's not only having access to the vision of its having access to the tools to, and that's even what you've done. Okay Vivian, you're you just radiate confidence? We all see. We all feel it over these past couple of days, do you? Some of our listeners are indeed here today WanNa know. Do you ever doubt yourself like? Do you ever have what we call being bossed? Friday? Feelings I mean especially going into industries that you didn't have experienced in. Full frequently. Battle with imposture syndrome Prodi feelings all the time. But then. I. Think to myself you know what. If. I don't do what I'm. Put on this earth to do then nobody will. Nobody will be able to do it either, because people who who look like me or even in the same situation as me so I. Guess I'm a single mom. I've been through depression. I've been I've been through all the things that tried me and I came out gold. So if I don't tell that story, I don't tell people how it's done. Then everyone's just this is GonNa be one hell of a boring world so if I. Let that Imposter Syndrome. Eat Me! Eat Away at me. Then that's not that's not fair. It's not fair to anyone. Right, so I shine so that everyone else can shine to. Raise that's like. Your purpose higher than your emotions absolutely. Thinks the. Catholics. Say she's like yes. I, know what with his quarantine? My bow talks has worn off so you can see my reaction. That's right. My eyebrows moving now. I love it. Up Cackling. Right I'd like to bring this to. The branding things, which you've talked a little bit about and the conference, but not everyone has been a part of the conference like listening to this we have. So many more people who have been who have been here with for the past couple of days, so I wanna to talk about this personal branding piece. And if you have any top tips for anyone who's looking to infuse more of their personality into their brand, how can just any old person in by any old person I mean? Everyone is a snowflake How can anyone shine in their business and use themselves as a tool for growth? Or what I want to remind people is you don't need to be me. So you, you know there's. If you think about people like if you think it will jams, right? There's different Jams Jentzsch. Ruby shied differently than a diamond emeralds than that, so you need to be exactly that so be yourself because the minute you start being someone who you're not. It's going to feel like work. It's going to feel You're going to hate it. People will see right through it. So you really don't have any choice, but to be yourself and so sometimes that means you being quirky, or it means you know. Maybe you do more blogging than you do video or whatever the case may be. You just need to show up as yourself. In whatever platform however way you want to do it and the people who it will resonate with. We'll find you. They will find you, so don't be. Please don't be anybody else you don't. That's not what you were. Put on this earth to be to be someone else I just doing yourself a huge disservice by not being yourself. How windy you feel the most yourself Vivian. Like sometimes it's hard to know like what what is me. What should I be sharing? Where do I draw these lines? You know what you know you know where the lines are to be drawn right? You know you know liking. We women. That's one thing I find with specially with women, and there's a lot of things on finding, but anyhow with women we need to trust. Our guts were always second guessing ourselves. We're always doing all these things, but you just need to trust yourself because you know what you know where that line is. You know what you should be sharing what you shouldn't be sharing. Someone there's comanding that unlike very existential questions, which is basically sums it up I'm like, but but even are we but a bundle of sell. What is time? What is personality? What is money. So sorry asked me asking the question again, so I can play it all night, so the question is windy. You feel most yourself like. How do you know what is authentically? You because I think all of us. WanNa show up as we are and who we are. But we can start to second. Guess Ourselves, so you were saying like we. As women need to listen to our guts like we know, it's in our guts. But how do you tune into that like I know like? Let's just say. I remember doing a couple of years ago, I did. I was I was asked to speak at a hair like a beauty hair brand thing and I didn't like it. 'cause hair was not my passionate kid. I could give to kicks about hair, but put me on. Put me in a forum or an opportunity like this. This is where I shine. So I know. You know you know like you know like you know. I'd so, that's the only. Way Can I can explain. We know you know you know. My in I think even what you're explaining is that you know by trying things, and then like listening to yourself right, so you did the hair thing or you went and spoke at the hair thing and you're like this feels gross like, but you wouldn't have known that if you hadn't tried it. I ache, factly eggs, and that's the key to life to. You gotta try. You gotTA. Try GotTA. Try GotTA. Try 'cause. That's the only way you're gonNA. Find out what you. You like and don't like you can apply that to life like you don't know you like Kale until you try it. You don't know you guys that do this until you try it. You have to go through and try a bunch of different things, and then and you know one of the things I started to realize because I'm I'm forty two, so at forty I was like you know what I'm done trying to live in this Fox like I'm done, it's over. I'm Vivian means lively one so Vivian you just need to go about living your best life because. You know all before I was forty at kept trying to be. Everyone kept trying to put me in this box. You know be a box. Go in the box. You know what I. I discovered that I was a parallelogram. Graham is is a sideways buckler rectangle that has. The Google it okay. I was a parallelogram and I was tired of being put into the box, and so once I turned forty. I just flip the bird to everything and said you know what again if you do not like it, I do not care. That is not my problem. You can go kick rocks with an open Tokyo.

Mary Kay Letourneau dies of cancer at 58
"An infamous person in the American pop culture history. Has Died. Mary Kay Laterna and I know died of cancer fifty eight. Mary Kay Letourneau is one of the biggest tabloid type stories. This country has ever seen. She was the shoes at a teacher who fell in love with a fourteen year old student. Got They got caught. And she got sent to prison for seven years. She did seven years and as soon as she got out, they got married. They stayed. She stayed in love with this guy. She was married had two kids I think. she was thirty four. Or something like that Villi. was his name is name. And As soon as she got out because she she got arrested the first time they were caught, and she was put on probation and ordered not to be anywhere close to him. She violated her probation when they were caught in a car together. And that's when she went to jail for seven years got out. Say in the whole time. It doesn't matter what you do to me. We are in love and. I. Know that people think badly of it, but we're. We're in love, and we can't help it, and we will be together and they were supposedly. In in love with each other the whole time she was imprisoned, she got out they got married started having kids. Data Cancer. And she was married at the time that she started fooling around with Villi because he went to her house. I think the first time. In a month, yeah! Fifty eight years old. But we had that was. That was the first big. Nationwide that I remember teacher student. Scandal yet, but and I. can't think of a of a pop culture tabloidish type scandal. Of recent years that even comes close to that to be able to give an example to the kids,
A conversation with Golfer Joseph Bramlett
"To get that experience anyways, but it's. It's always funny to be. We. We kinda over this I. Forget if you mentioned this, but you were at the time I don't know if there's still the case, but you. The youngest qualifier for the AM ever at age fourteen I was yeah, it was Yeah, that was that was awesome, and that was kind of part of the reason. My Dad kind of pushed me towards amador golf after that point to try to play with guys that were bigger, better, stronger, smarter Um the end when. I was fourteen years old and I went through thirty six qualifier ironically I had just lost in the qualifier and a playoff for the US junior amateur three weeks before, and then I play the US. Amador qualifier and got myself in a playoff and was able to somehow. It a wedge into a five Verdy the playoff and make its Oakland hills for the US am and it was It was unbelievable. I mean I was fourteen. No idea what I was doing what it meant, but it was really really cool. Yeah, I was the youngest ever well. This is a question that I never know how to word I guess, but what I'm trying to get at, and I know there's there's been a lot of ups and downs from injuries in your career, but I always want to know from guys that have kind of lived in that bubble between you bouncing back between the Korn ferry tour. As to what how you view, what separates you from? The example I always go to his Kevin Kisner who is perennially on has his card very safely does does very well doesn't bomb it, but just has a very i. don't want to say normal game, but a more relatable game to a lot of people in your mind. What is what's the difference between you and Kevin Kisner? What are you have to do to get to his level of consistency? It's honestly it's interesting. You bring up Kevin Kisner, because kids actually had a period of time that he bounce back and forth from the PGA tour the Korn Ferry tour back. I think he went back to the Korn ferry twice very early in his career out of college and He had a tough time. He almost thought about giving up the game. I read one time, so kids has got to a point in his career where he's figured. Figured out what it takes to succeed for himself to succeed on the PGA tour I really think the difference between me and him is simply experience I've actually played against him quite a bit growing up. We face each other in the US. AM In two thousand four. When he was in college, I was sixteen, and he beat me on the first playoff hole and I mean. I've I've played quite a bit against him and he's a great player. He's you know. parentally keeps his car now he's. He's in a great place in his career, but he went through those growing pains as well I think for myself. My career kind of got put on hold for about five years, and so my learning curve got a little messed up in there, and I think that having gone through the Korn Ferry tour now and got my car back. I've learned a lot. Lot about what I need to do. well to succeed again week out and That's where a lot of conversations about putting with math has come up because that's one of the areas of my game that I can get more consistent and stronger at from a ball striking perspective. I think I'm in a pretty good place. wedge game has gotten much more consistent in the last year and a half and I think from a mental. Perspective I think there's something to be said for getting comfortable out here and and ceiling like you can compete with these guys, even when you're game is not sure. My rookie year when I played on the PGA tour, I thought every aspect of my game had to be firing perfectly for me to have a chance to succeed and I've had several events this year. That I've had pretty good finishes and look back on how I played. I'm like man. I really wasn't that sharp this week. but I. I'm starting to figure out kind of how to peace tournaments together again and I think that's. That's where kids has gotten, too. I mean he's a great ball striker and I certainly am not taking anything away from what he does. He's a great offer, but I think the he is so consistent at where he's at now because he's gotten through those growing pains, he's gotten to a point where he knows exactly what it takes for him to play well, and he does that and he kissed on worry about anything else
The Chess Grandmasters Extreme Workout
"I. How did you get on the chess? Beat in the first place? So I get really interested in these really need sports that. People are super invested in Ashwari. Kumar is an international features writer for Espn Lake if you're going to which. Of People Are Watching these chess tournaments that you wouldn't even know where that's happening in. Iceland. Or Finland, and so I had this curiosity so I was thinking so Bobby Fisher was such a huge part of chests in the US what Ron Labor is tennis. What Jack Nicklaus's to golf? That's what Bobby Fischer is to chess. Bobby Fisher of the United States will finally meet Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union in Belgrade Yugoslavia, but the chess championship of the world plus a purse of one, hundred, thirty, eight, thousand five hundred dollars, the richest prize for a head-to-head confrontation in any sport, but boxing. So who is the next Bobby Fisher? So I went to Saint Louis last year to sort of figure out what is going on in the chess world, so saint Louis has sort of become this chess capital of the country. Let's start with the basics here. What is a chess grandmaster? And what does it take to become one? Usually what happens? Is this International Chess Federation F. And they have this point systems so chessplayers. Lead different tournaments in accumulate these spines that. Gets them to a certain level of expertise, and they are then title the grandmaster, which is in fact, the highest I do that. A chess player can be awarded by International Chess Federation usually these. Players between the age of ten and fourteen, and so they go through these rigorous tournaments one after the other parents take them all over the world. And the get the title by around thirteen fourteen, and then they start to perfect the art of being perfect, just player. So you mentioned Bobby Fisher. Who is probably the most famous chess player all time? Actually is definitely the most famous chess player of all time. Who are the stars of the field today? The poster by of chess is at the moment Magnus Carlsen. Calzon is the best in the world. The youngest number one ever and no one can explain to you how he does what he does. It seems to come from another world, which is why he's become known as the Mozart of chess. He's from Norway. He sort of had this. Has this bad boy live to him? He's like interesting. He'll drop these nuggets about other players. You make jokes about his opponents. He talks trash social chicken. How do you not? He's GonNa do the same. Yeah the lack of comas is astounding. And quite disappointing. He talks acts. Yeah for sure sorta like that kind of Worcester wise. He's called the golden boy of chess. And then this. Is. Bobby Ana crew art, there's this Chinese grandmaster Ding Laren and then USA's Wesley so and Kara Nakimora. Really Good Armenia has live on Romanian so these are some of like the famous players at the moment that go up against each other all the time. So I the grandmaster that you decided to focus on with your story, the one who lives in Saint Louis is actually Italian. His name is Fabiano Caruana. Who is in? How did he get here? Fabiano Caruana is the number two seed in the world. He's an Italian American chess grandmaster. He became a grandmaster at fourteen years of age, fourteen years, eleven, months, and twenty eight to be exact, and he at that time was the youngest grandmaster in the history of Italy in the United States. E was sort of beg to be the next big thing in in US chess and he came back now. He has an apartment in Saint Louis. He lives there and he sort of boot. BOOT his life from scratch, and he was never like the big personality like Norris Magnus columnist. He's the guy that will is very chill loves video games and let us work to the talk to his justice stories about that call in the next Bobby Fisher like the next big thing. He's the one person that can actually dig down. Magnus, Carlsen in the world championship and become the next world champion. So what does? Chess match in a grand masters tournament. Actually look like. How does it play out? Okay so two grandmasters shake each other's hands. sit down across from each other is chessboard. This o'clock next to them that the are constantly looking at. This goes on for at least six hours right every day, and so during these six hours, the brain has to have most oxygen supply. Which means your heart is functioning three times faster than on any given. And because of that sustained higher blood pressure, and sustained higher level of activity by the heart and the rain, the body goes through intense physical. Energy lost during. A chess game that lasts six to seven to sometimes eat hours said.
Epstein's alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell set to be arraigned next week
"Maxwell. epsteins closest associates. And helped him exploit girls. who were as young as fourteen years old? Mental played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify the friend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Okay if you thought the Jeffrey Epstein case was over after his apparent suicide in his jail cell last year. Thank again you'll remember that Epstein was the disgraced financier and convicted sex offender who socializes powerful men like Prince Andrew Bill Clinton and Donald Trump on Thursday, his longtime associate d'alene Maxwell, was arrested and charged for allegedly helping Epstein recruit groom, and sexually abused girls as young as fourteen years old. She has denied any wrongdoing. Here's more of what the US attorney from the southern. District of New York had to say about it. Max will and Epstein had a method. Typically. They would befriend these young girls by asking them questions. About their lives, pretending to be taking an interest in them. They would take them to the movies. And treat them to shopping trips. Maxwell would encourage these young girls to accept offers from Epstein to pay for their travel and their education. Making these young victims feel indebted to Jeffrey Epstein. Developing a rapport with Victims Maxwell then try to normalize sexual abuse with a minor victim. Joining me now. Our our sisters in Law Maya Wiley Professor at the new school and NBC legal analysts Barbara Maclead, former US attorney and MSNBC contributor and Joyce vans, also a former US attorney, and also MSNBC contributor so ladies first I love the all female panel, but I will say starting out I used to be a field producer for America's most wanted, and my beat was covering missing and exploited children. On, this and ask you if you could. How important is the role of the person WHO's The enabler? The person who is recruiting these young girls and my experience, that person was integral to abuse cases when I was a journalist covering these types of cases so. What what say you on that? Yeah. You're absolutely right, tiffany. This is this person and the person who plays the role that. Just Lane Maxwell accused of playing is a Predator is just as culpable as. Jeffrey Epstein or anyone else who sexually assaults anybody? The reason it's so critical to have a person play the role maxwell is accused of is because it's manipulation gain. We have three hundred thousand young people in this country estimated to be sex trafficked domestically, and what that means is finding young kids met male and female. We shouldn't pretend that it's just girls here. In this country who are vulnerable, who need help who need the support of a system hasn't provided it. These are young women who were disadvantaged in many different ways, and what the role that Maxwell played was to play on their need. Get them to trust and being a woman who does that is particularly important, because if you're a vulnerable young woman, you're more likely to let your guard down and believe that the person who is offering you help means it so her role. Is Pivotal in enabling essentially the victimization of a lot of young women and girls, and it happens all over the country. One of the things that so important about this arrest is that predators who are powerful too often go unpunished. So something I found interesting reporting coming out of the Tampa. Bay Times highlighted that this case is actually being handled by the Office of Public Corruption Unit so I. WanNa ask you, Barbara. What does that say about the scope of this? Nation is that. Link to anyone in the current administration. Is it possible that Labor Secretary Alexander Costa's entangled in this break it down for those of us who don't necessarily know how the inner workings of the Southern District. It's a really interesting detail. Tiffany of the press release that was put out by this other district of New, York. This is also true when the case was originally just against Jeffrey Epstein that the public corruption unit is involved, that's a unit that has specialized training and expertise to deal with public officials who get charged there a lot of nuanced issues that arise when public officials are involved and so it says to me that this case. Case at least touches in some way public officials. Now as you said we know that Alex Kosta had some involvement with this. We don't know that he is a subject or a target of the investigation, but his involvement in negotiating sweetheart plea deal a number of years ago. With Jeffrey Epstein could be a reason. We also know that Prince. Andrew has been implicated as recently as last month Jeffrey Berman. The former US attorney recently ousted. Ousted was demanding an opportunity to talk with him and Prince Andrew was a dodging that request to be interviewed. It may be that he is only a witness and not a subject or a target, but this no doubt touches some people who have positions of power, and that could explain why the involvement of public corruption unit or could be others as yet unknown I think four names I be looking at immediately or not public. Public officials, but enablers as Maya, was talking about. If you look at the plea non-prosecution agreement that was negotiated with the Southern District of Florida back in two thousand eight. You'll see the names of four individuals that Jeffrey Epstein specifically wanted to protect. Those are very likely to be people who were enablers recruiters I'd want to get to the bottom of their role. and I think that this case is not done being charged yet. I want to turn the Joyce. Barbara brought up Berman and his abrupt firing. Do you see any connection here with what the dismissal of Berman and the FCC case? So, Tiffany I think it's very hard to know. We know that. The Attorney General Poll Day late Friday night effort to usher Berman out the door, unceremoniously in the southern district of New York and that didn't work became public when Berman refused to go along and instead of having the Attorney General's political appointee in place. We ended up with a woman who was. was already in the office, a career employee, a career prosecutor who will hopefully be playing things straight up so it's difficult to make any sort of direct political line there what we do know is that this is the classic type of an indictment that looks like prosecutors aren't done. It looks like they're headed in further direction, and that's something that there could perhaps. Perhaps be powerful. People who are interested in shutting off when I say it's a classic indictment. What I mean is this indictment comes in six counts, and there's a I can't. That's a conspiracy count and the maximum penalty. There is five years, but there are also substantive counts and conspiracy counts of enticement and transportation of minors, and those counts actually range from ten. Ten years to lifetime sentences, and so as MS Maxwell, is forced to confront the potential charges. She's looking out. Does she want to go to prison for the rest of her life, or is she willing to cooperate and become a witness and look at lesser charges? Perhaps five year sentence that I think will give some powerful people some reason to sleep poorly. All right. Am I GONNA? Go back to you. What do you think that gain maxwell will do you anticipate that she? Said they say. It's hard to know. We're looking at a case as both Barbara Jo of a choice have said where there are powerful people connected to Maxwell and Epstein. There's the mysterious death of Jeff Jeffrey Epstein that has still raised questions in people's mind. And I think the question becomes. Where do you feel more vulnerable? Do you feel more vulnerable from law enforcement, or do you feel more vulnerable other ways we don't really know. We're not going to know, but the one thing we do know and I think is important to remember is this is an over for the victims? This is only the beginning of what will be a very deeply difficult. Possibly re traumatizing process that they have really bravely stood up and faced down despite the fact that I don't think there's any illusion for them. They will have to protect themselves from further victimization in the way, in which the defense will be mounted for Maxwell. So if there's any decency at all left in this woman, she will certainly spare them.
Laverne Cox: Fighting for Trans Lives
"I want to start with your Time magazine cover if that's okay into dozen fourteen year on the cover of time and the headline, said the transgender tipping point. Wow, I wanNA to know if you knew that that's what the headline was going to be. And what your reaction was, it was a cover. Try so I wasn't. One hundred percent sure I be on the cover. They told me it stem news item happened. That was really big that I would be bumped from the cover so I didn't know that the cover. What's happening until I? Think the night before that was happening for sure. I didn't know what the headline would be. The first time I saw the cover, a friend of mine named Precious Davis. Who's a brilliant activist and human beings? She's in Chicago. She texted me a photo of the cover and then it was. The editor of time premiered on like think morning America. One of the morning shows that morning. And then it was and I think that certainly changed my wow, so, what was your reaction to the transgender tipping point part of it? You know it's I, don't it's hard for me to separate my reaction in two thousand fourteen from the subsequent sort of reaction. That community has had to that title. There was so much. Criticism. From my community of that title, and the suggestion of that tipping point and criticism of the way the article was written, and who was excluded in there was a lot of that. I like about my community, and what I appreciate about activists who are on the ground doing the work is that in their honesty they keep us accountable. They keep us pushing to go further to be more inclusive to think differently and harder about who is being left out and what? We're not talking about so it's hard for me to separate my reaction. Of the tipping point moment from. The criticism and the critical interrogation of that moment my engine Mitchell, it's we did a panel for variety magazine. A year ago about Trans Representation in the media. For Trans Actors, and she what she said, is that that moment in two thousand fourteen, with kind of all about Laverne is the way she framed it. And then she said Post Post because we're probably impose moment, even though poses still in the air. It's about all of us. Jin, Richards contended, and I like that because I think it was always my goal, that was very clear in two thousand, fourteen at that moment was not about me and man it was about. About a community that was part was about all the activist who worked for years to create space for me to have that moment on the cover of Time magazine, and so now that is coming to fruition that more of our voices are being elevated and more perspectives and It's taken a lot of pressure me I feel a lot of pressure in two thousand fourteen I gotta tell you reflecting on that moment is. Do you remember the criticism more than the celebration? Of both, they covered with revealed on my birthday, so my birthday now is not only my birthday. Anniversary of me being on the cover of Time magazine, which is pretty dope and I decided that year I said to myself. If I'm going to be on the cover of time, magazine, chiappa Party and so. I wasn't going to be on the cover. If I was bump for any reason I was like well, they could just be a birthday party, and so I had a party that year and Time magazine mistake were so generous that they gave us tons of copies of the magazine and my boyfriend at the time had posters made of the of the magazine as opposed to of my Time magazine, covering my apartment, and I went to my mom, and then we gave one. Away for charity, so we had a party and it was indeed celebration there were tons of Trans People at the Party and some people from orange, new black with the party, and so I have fond memories of the celebration of the moment as well but I think both can exist all about both end that I can be in the celebration, the neck, and also critically effect on the moment

Why Was a Doctor Once Ridiculed for Recommending Hand Washing?
"Even, when there isn't a pandemic gone, we all know were supposed to wash our hands especially before we eat or after we've touched something gross, but that wasn't always the case. As recently as the eighteen hundreds, a doctor was mocked for even suggesting that physicians wash their hands before working with patients, and that dear listener is how we begin the strange and sad story of Nets, some of ice, a nineteenth century doctor sometimes called the father of infection control. them vice was born in Hungary in eighteen, eighteen and graduating medical school. He started a job at Vienna. General Hospital in Austria in eighteen forty six there there. He became a gas to the mortality rate of new mothers in one of the hospitals wards. In this ward up to eighteen percent of new mothers were dying from what was then called child, bed, fever or pure berle fever. We know today that this is a fever caused by infection of the reproductive or urinary tract in new mothers? Yet another of the hospital's wards where midwives instead of doctors delivered all of the babies, only about two percent of mothers died of this then mysterious fever. similize vice began reasoning his way to the root of the problem. He considered climate and crowding, but eventually ruled those factors out in the end. The midwives themselves seems to be the only real difference between the two wards. Then Zuma vice had an epiphany one of the hospitals doctors, a pathologist accidentally nicked himself the scalpel that hit used during an autopsy of one of these unfortunate mothers. The doctor was sick and with child bed fever and he died. Zamel vice made the connection that doctors were performing autopsies on patients who died of child, had fever, and then immediately afterward going to deliver babies without stopping to wash their hands. He suspected that this was the source of the deadly problem. We spoke by with Dana Towards e eski philosophy professor at Purdue University whose name I hope I'm pronouncing correctly. She explained, basically has hypothesis here was that it was cadaveric matter from scalpels, the entered the pathologists blood, and caused the infection and same material could be transferred to the women on the hands of the doctors, because the doctors do autopsies, and then go straight to examine the women who had given birth without washing their hands, changing their clothes, or basically taking any hygienic measures at all, he then tested this hypothesis by requiring people who had performed autopsies to wash their hands with chloride of lime, a disinfectant before attending the weapon and this, the mortality rate in the first clinic fell to that of the second. You'd think that some of fellow doctors would have lauded him for this discovery, but you'd be wrong. You see in the eighteen forties. Germ theory hadn't been conceived yet. That's the theory that diseases are caused by organisms, not visible to the naked eye and people still suspected the diseases transferred from one person to another via toxic. Not Bacteria or viruses, this was called miasma theory in washing their hands. They probably wanted to be rid of whatever was causing a bad. Not to kill germs that might wreak havoc on them or someone else. We also spoke by email, but Michael Melanson, an adjunct professor of medicine at. University he said physicians of Vices. Time simply did not understand or believe that something microscopic could be wreaking such havoc on their patients. They literally believed their own is less. We feel too smug. Consider how many people currently embrace a lack of COVID, nineteen deaths among people like me geographically racially economically or otherwise as evidence that scientists are overestimating the pandemics risk. Better hand washing regimens dramatically improved death rates at the maternity ward, but some vices colleagues were at best miffed at the implication that their ignorance was killing their own patients, and perhaps implication that midwives were better at delivering babies than they were. It didn't help that Zimmer Vice essentially laid the deaths of the wards mothers at the feet of his superiors. His own supervisor countered that the hospitals new ventilation system must be the reason for the decline in maternity deaths. Also, Zimbabwe's was a Hungarian in Austria A. Working in country in the throes of xenophobia. So those doctors rejected his theories and some of ice himself as being inferior, they opted to stick with their miasma theory, and for good measure in eighteen, forty nine did not renews vices appointment. As vice eventually got a medical position in Budapest where he according to the British Medical Journal quote publicly harangued doctors nurses about hand, washing and reduced maternal mortality. He eventually published a book on the subject some fourteen years later, but it was poorly written and poorly received. Possibly, experiencing mental disorder or extreme stress from his rejection by the medical establishment, Zim of ice ended up a patient in an asylum in eighteen sixty five weeks later, he was dead of an infection from a wound that he received in the facility. She was just forty seven years old. similize left behind monumental legacy, but the tragedy of his story has made it Garner a few minutes. One of those being that demo vice was the first suggested theory about doctors transmitting germs. Kaletsky said he wasn't really a pioneer. Other people before Zamel vice had hit upon the idea that child bed fever could be transmitted from doctor or midwife to patient for example Alexander Gordon of Aberdeen showed in Seventeen Ninety. Five child had fever was almost always transmitted by doctors or midwives, and also that it was connected to a kind of streptococcal skin rash. He also thought that the best treatment was copious bleeding.
A Guide To Relationships on Lockdown
"So. You know how we've spent a lot of time these past few months. Talking about everything, the covid nineteen has changed while. There's one big thing that we haven't covered yet. It's sensitive. It's intimate. It's not easy to talk about even when there is no pandemic, it's just messy. It's marriage. And living together and partnership for life with kids or without. If you're married or partnered, you haven't been alone throughout all this and you're lucky, but you've also likely spent the last few months navigating an entirely different landscape, adjusting to a new daily life, and probably fighting at least sometimes. Today, we'll talk about the unique stresses that these and I'm sorry here. Unprecedented Times of placed on couples who pledged to spend their lives together. Just maybe not this close together for this long. We'll talk about how to fight and how to divide household labor how to survive till death do us part, and beyond and I will try not to get myself in trouble at home by saying something dumb. Can I do? We will find at. Jordan he's Rawlings and this is the big story. Stephen Marsh is a writer and a podcast and his new show is called and I'm GonNa say it, and we'll see if the producers me. How not about your marriage too bad? Hi Stephen. How're you doing? I'm doing well. Thank you, I'm going to start because we're GONNA talk about relationships today I'm just going to start by asking you. How has Being together with two kids, homeschooling and working twenty four seven impacted your partnership. You know to be honest, a kind of love it I. Mean Like I'm a freelance writer, so I'm used to being at home alone and so for me. It's sort of like the kids are home from school. There's like a lot of activity in the house and I'm less lonely. That's really that's really the big. The big change I think it's a little harder for my wife to be stuck with me the. The whole time, and certainly it's you know certainly to be my fourteen year old son in be stuck with your parents for the indefinite future without being able to go to camp or anything like that is a bit of a nightmare. I mean you know. I think were were kind of lucky. Because like whenever wherever covid goes like divorce, rates spike like in Wuhan the bureaucracies just totally overwhelmed with divorce. applications the sames happening in Italy It's a classic relationship accelerator so single. Single people who were you know at home? Confronting Death by themselves unable to touch anyone are like desperate to get married and people who are married or like I need to get the hell out of here. You know it kind of it kind of works both ways on people. Do you remember at the beginning of this? When people were saying? Oh, there's GonNa be a covert baby-boom. Then everybody with kids said well. If there is, it's going to be all only children, Yeah I. I mean it's like the hormonal effective covert I. Don't think has really been written about, but like I I mean I knew there would not be covid baby boom. There were there were stories. I mean. You've heard stories. The early days of people who'd been on three dates shacking up that cannot work out well, so tell me about this podcast which recorded pre pandemic, but is being released now in the middle of one. What has cova done to the subjects you discuss on the podcast? It seems like it must have just put more pressure on all of them. Well, yeah, I mean. It's very interesting because you know not to be too glib about it, but the time like the timing of the release could not be better because you know the questions that we deal with in this show like. You know the physiological basis of fighting like. How do you fight better like suddenly? This becomes very very important to people who are jammed together all the time. How do you deal with money together? This is also about going to become very very important for a huge number of marriages how to deal with death how to think through divorce. Should, you schedule sex? How do you deal with housework? And suddenly all of these questions which we were dealing with which matter you know in the best of times suddenly, they've all come very much to the fore the it's the old questions I don't think the questions have really changed. Just their urgency has and I'm going to get you to. Well give me some of the advice you get to in the podcast and the listeners to because I'm sure we could all use it right now, but I. You mentioned at the very beginning that you think it's been great for you to be at home in also have company my honest question to you is Would your wife? Would Sarah say the same thing? No, I don't think so I think she you know she. She's a more social person. It's not really a marriage question. She likes being in an. An office she likes being with other people. She likes that space quite a bit and be denied it I. Think is actually pretty pretty rough. You know also there's the question of we. We have to educate our children and do our jobs at the same time, which is hugely stressful and really frankly not possible. Yeah. I think for me a freelance writer. Where like you? You find me in my office where I am every where I've been every day for fifteen years like tied to this table in the tower of song. It's not. It's not really that different for me, but for her. It's huge. What have you guys thought about during this pandemic I know you've fought i. you know what I think. I can't even remember the subject I. Mean I know that sounds like a capo, but I definitely have fought, but you know the subjects are really irrelevant. Because what were you know when when we did the fighting episode? One thing I learned was that you know fighting is now. Now is not really about issues. It's not about the problems in your marriage, and certainly never helps to solve those problems It's really a physiological response to Stimuli. It's about when you're when you're intimate with someone. Your brain naturally looks for threat and that and naturally response to threat and when you do that, you're you know the tends to build on itself very very quickly, and you know the conditions of covid really are the conditions that make us all. Very intimate suddenly and. Without escape, and so it's natural that you're going to have more fights is just. It's just part of your body. It's just basically a physical reaction, so yeah, we've had some raiders, but I don't think they've like. The subject matter is kind of irrelevant. So how do you fight better the topic of a whole episode? Yeah I mean it's complicated like I. Don't want to reduce it to a one point because you know like. We talked to Stanton. WHO's very famous neurobiologist and we talked to cloudy Hasso. Who'd who does like lifetime studies, couples, and how they fight, and how it affects their bodily reactions to? Overtime and you know they have. They have a lot of collective insights into it, but I mean I. Think the real the point the takeaway for me anyway like fighting is not an intellectual process. You're not going to solve any issue that you have through fighting. You're not even going to address. It and so the really when you get into a fight, which is natural. It's it's inevitable. There's no escape from that the. The health even to fight. The point is to get jet to safety as quickly as possible. What does that mean get to? Safety means to make your partner feel like their loved rather than threatened, and you know the simple ways to do that are just to look each other in the is for about thirty seconds, or just to leave and run and do a silly dance, or do something physical to get out the energy. And just returned to a where you feel like you like your your interest or mutual again. just get to that place as quickly as possible because you know, the other way just expands forever. Don't you not fix the shoes by doing that though? But you never fix an issue by fight. I mean there's no you will not find anyone like. That was the point. That's what I learned like. You Talk to these people and you're in there and they're like well. Don't you need to have fights in order to solve problems in lake? Well, no fight has ever solved a problem and I I thought about it. In my own case I've been married for nearly twenty years and I was like. Yeah, you're right. I mean like the way you solve a problem by sitting down calmly with a glass of wine and talking things through and being frank and honest about it, and we're and we're talking to a therapist or D- But. That's not fighting. Like. That's not that's not that's not. The fighting is just response to Stimuli. What about just living together in general, which is another topic of one of the episodes first of all I guess. What did you discover that either? You've been just doing wrong? The whole time or wish you'd known before you lived with your partner. Well I mean one thing I learned I sort of. Of knew already had written about before in the unmade bed is that there are no solutions to the problems of living together like the there, there is no magic bullet you think think when you're when you're a kid. When I was a kid, I thought Oh will drop contracts, and it'll make it all simple, and then we'll. We're reasonable people. We both believe in equality. We both want. Want to do the same things, and and and we and we don't want. We don't WanNA fight about dumb stuff like who's cleaning the toilet and stuff like that, so we'll make up a list, but that's not actually how it works at all. It's much more emotionally driven, and it's much more about the quest for recognition, and the truth is those matters just like never really get solved. Solved so then you then you come to the place of Lake Well. How do you? How do you deal with that irresolution I? Mean that is the one thing that I really learned from doing this show is that marriage is quite hard You know look. I wasn't an idiot I. knew people were in pain in their relationships, but I. Guess I kind of thought that they were. Met screwing things up, or they had their own problems or something like that, it's like no actually doing this is actually quite difficult, and it requires a lot of endurance, and it requires a lot of skill and tenderness, and it also requires a lot of luck, and so that's I. You know that was the that was kind of the takeaway for me like you know. This is actually a lot harder than you think. Yeah. You realize now that we're two men now talking about housework, right? You don't know how. Yeah, no, and it's really. I'M GONNA. Get in trouble for this, and so are you yeah? and. Also maybe we should be doing it like. Let's also take that into account, but anyway go on one of the reasons why I wanted to talk to you and to talk about this is because I think it often falls on. the woman in a marriage to to try to fix the marriage, and to try to have those emotional discussions and try to bring those topics up so I think like. Yes obviously There are probably things that we're going to get wrong and screw up by having this conversation. It shouldn't be left to wives to make the husband go to counseling and to initiate these conversations, and you know to try to save the marriage, so so that's what I'd say that but I. Wanted to ask you about recognition because I find when there are inequalities, it is the recognition that makes the difference between a fight and no fight. It's not necessarily the active. Okay. Well, you take the garbage out five days a week and I'll take the. I'll do the dishes five days a week and etc. It's the lake. I see you taken garbage out. That's awesome. Well. That's the getting to safety. Part of fighting. Getting to safety is like that feeling like I'm seen in you, know me and were together right, and so you always want to get to that as quickly as possible, but you know I mean I'm on the record like my about housework like my feeling about it is that? Every like everyone should do a lot less of it, and that the the long term trend with housework is not men doing more where it gets women. Doing less has been that. That's true everywhere in Western Europe North America. It's called disinvestment in some well known sociological category you know. My mother was a fulltime physician who also vacuumed the the drapes of our house lake. That's not it quickly realized. That's no longer possible, and but that whole debate around what housework is it so fascinating but it's also almost impossible to have rationally like it's it it it becomes. It becomes super emotional and. Layered with with norms so quickly, you know it's it's almost impossible to have those conversations. In general, although I definitely agree with you, that men do not do their fair share of trying to make marriage is work or Thinking through their marriages right, I mean like I, I think there's this this thing with men were they don't WanNa even consciously try and conceive of these questions they want to just push them aside and get on with things and I think that's really bad and dangerous and stupid and just stupid like there's there's ways to think through this stuff that are very can really improve your life and can improve your marriage, and they're not hippie nonsense, right and the and they're not you know snake oil salesmen stuff they're. They're quite practical. I WanNa, talk to you, but a couple of. Of the other episodes that we can may be covering somewhat rapid fire succession associated. You schedule Sex. What what are the experts say? Yes, I mean you know in this show we take all these questions and we we try get multiple perspectives on them, and you know definitely different perspectives and see how we feel about them. We literally could not find a single expert who said don't schedule sex. They all say schedule sex because you know the simple truth is. If you don't, you won't have it and you know the other thing is if you get to once a week. that is the equivalent in happiness terms of going from making twenty five thousand dollars a year to making seventy five thousand dollars a year so i. don't know about you, but when I went from that from twenty five to seventy five K that was like the most happiness that was the greatest increase of happiness that I could have so yeah. You do absolutely that one you know most. Most of these things, there's no AB testing for most the stuff, so you know most of the things we don't have as definitive answers that to these questions, but that one is a pretty straight. Yes, how about deciding who to marry? That's I haven't listened to that episode yet, but really fascinating. We talked to a a matchmaker traditional matchmaker who charges ten thousand dollars for a? A relationship and we also talked to a WHO works at NASA Jet Propulsion Lab. Who as a sideline has developed as algorithm for determining when you should settle essentially and so like we look at the math of you know. How do you pick basically and not nothing works I? Mean that's the that's the sad answer, but like when you get to when you get to like trust, trust your. Your gut doesn't make any sense, but also trust. The numbers doesn't make any sense I. Mean I think that's kind of a lesson in itself. When you're picking this, you're doing it with. It's very partial information game. It's an asymmetrical information game and you have to know that when you get married. You're taking a big risk. What about should we just get divorced? How do you make that call? Yet, there's a whole group again. See. This is the kind of thing that I think that there. There's a kind of practical. There's practical solutions to this like there's a whole group of scholars divorce ideation out there from various different political beliefs and very leg. They study how people get divorced, and I mean about forty percent of people in divorce proceedings. Regret it in court really. You know the lesson here is divorce is a wonderful thing. It's kind of the key. People underrate the power of divorce like divorce is key to modern life as In freedom of the press its that important because it means that we're not locked in these terrible relationships like there is a way out and super important for human liberty, but at the same time you won't understand that if you're thinking about divorce. Especially coming out a covert I, think take it slowly like to take take your time to do it because people get divorced for his bad reasons as they get married rate for emotional reasons that are really temporary, and they don't really think through and yeah like divorce slowly. The last one I want to ask you about is pretty profound marriage death especially now when you know probably number of long term, marriages have lost a partner. How does marriage survived death? In what is that look like you know we talked to? That was a very powerful episode. You know it was. It was a sign of its success that no one who dealt with it could actually get through the whole thing without stopping and crying like our executive producer couldn't edit it like had to keep stopping. The sound designer couldn't really get through it. He kept crying. I. Mean it's your worst nightmare. Anybody who's married well I don't know I think they're i. think are much worse things that can happen in a marriage actually certainly after doing this show, but I think the You know that we talked to a woman who texts her dead husband like three years after the thing that's so interesting is that the relationship doesn't really end. We talked to all these people for whom including my mother for whom they're dead. Spouse, you know. The fact of his death was just kind of one more fact in the relationship, and the relationship went right on. It's just without one person, and so you know what this show is really about the difficulties of marriage, which can be grueling like the housework, the money problems the sex problems like all this stuff, but that show really showed like it is worth fighting for like it is actually worth trying to work out because it can be incredibly powerful in life life-affirming. What did you learn about? Marriage is an institution and a concept while making a show well, it's very It's not natural. When we did the show about parenting leagues, the thing that we kept returning to the kept coming back was like love your children and express your love for them, which is actually kind of the most natural thing in the world really late. That's not a tall order, but with. Marriage even the best couples, even the luckiest couples. The most compatible couples are going to struggle. Because because it is, it is not a natural arrangement. It's not built into our biology to do this, and and so that means it's doesn't mean that it's not worth doing, and it doesn't. The institution isn't powerful. Because in some ways it's never been more powerful than it is right now, but on the other hand I like it does require a lot of effort and a lot of endurance. My last question is just did this podcast the process of making it make you a better husband, and as a follow up like I, asked before. Would your wife agree with that I? Know? Did and I I know she would agree with it for sure. You know I, think just the the fighting episode was a really big one. Where it's just like you realize like actually, there's no point doing this. If you really WanNa change, things like have a serious conversation about them. Don't get into these screaming matches that. End Up just backtracking on and nothing ever happens like and you know there was something there was some very serious sort of I mean not very serious, but I am medium sized family crisis and in the middle of doing this podcast, and because I did the show I was really quite a bit calmer than I think I would have been before i. was just like you know what it's like. I feel threatened, but don't, but it's just. It's just physiological. Just just let it go. Just let it go, and you think about it when you're when when sanity is returned I'm going to remember that advice when Rosemary gets mad at me possibly while listening to this episode. Well I. Mean I think one thing that's really important like you really realize that how much pop culture and media assumptions about marriage of created this impression like it's i. mean it's happily ever after whatever and it's just. It's nonsense I. Mean we all know it's nonsense, but you the figuring out how this works involves a lot of effort. It's hard to admit that to yourself that. That it's all nonsense, yeah, I think I think it's really shoved down our throats, and then we don't ask ourselves these questions like I. I actually assumed doing this I. Mean it's weird to think but I was like a forty year old man who thought that married people had sex three times a week. And then I talk to an expert and they're like no joking like. And it was like right. Of course, of course that kind infer even basic information is not really available even to married people. You're kind of just left alone to deal with it, and there's no reason not to know. There's no reason to be ignorant. Stephen Thank you so much for this and I look forward to listen to the rest of the show. That was pleasure. Give give my best rosemary.
Engaging With the Marketplace with Chris Ruder
"What are the prerequisites for starting and building viral multimillion dollar, international brand, a degree in business or finance, tenure, strategic plan and annual marketing strategy well, and NBA would probably be helpful, maybe several high profile investors and contacts well. That's a great list, but it turns out that while most of those things might be good. They aren't actually necessary from the Ramsey network. This is the entreleadership podcasts. Were we help? Business leaders themselves their teams and their profits. I'm your host, Alex Judd and today we talking to the founder and CEO of a company that made gist over ten thousand in revenue in two, thousand, eight, one, million, in two, thousand, thirteen and twenty, one million in two. Two Thousand Nineteen. Chris Rudra leads the business known as Spike Ball. Have you played it? It's the four player round net game that is taking the nation and now the world by storm. y'All I. Am a huge fan of this game, but here's what's funny about Chris's background. It isn't at all what you would expect. He didn't have some profoundly intentional plan strategy or goal for Spike Ball. In fact at the beginning. He wasn't even allowed to play. So I, I first spike ball in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, so I was about fourteen years old at the time, and my older brother's friends who live just down the street from us, they bought a couple sets local toy store, brought it back to the neighborhood, and they started playing a bunch and I remember thinking. It was a super cool game, but I wasn't really allowed to play because i. was you know just kind of like the annoying? Annoying younger brother, so I kinda stood on the sidelines and got to watch, and they play over the years and I'd play a little bit and fast forward to two thousand and three me, my brother and those same childhood friends. We all went on a trip to Hawaii together. You know and we are now adults out of college and kind of working, and that was where I really I got the bug for it and when we were playing strangers would. Would stop and ask us the same three questions. What's that game? How do you play? And where can I get it and the work could I get apart? We could never really answer because from what little we knew. Spike Ball was launched in nineteen, eighty nine, and it was killed in one thousand, ninety one, so it had a very short shelf life, and assuming they stop selling exit didn't sell well, not really exactly sure why but enough people ask that. That question where light bulb kind of went off, and I was like I wonder if there's like the marketplace talking to you, sort of the saying goes and I had such a blast in that game. You know my brother and I were partners. Who is he and I? I is Tim and Pat Kennedy. Who are childhood friends and their twin brother, so we just had this like brother rivalry thing going on some of the world's most beautiful beaches and. My brother and I weren't all that close and we were kids. We were kind of rivals ourselves. So this was actually the first time we. We're competing together against two other guys so I. Really you know that trip hit me hard, and that's where I really got the bug, and we started using sentences like you know. Wouldn't it be cool if we could bring this thing back to life like? Wouldn't that be fun? And you know none of us knew anything about starting a company or any of that and it was a great idea to try and bring it back, but we did what I believe. Most people do with an idea is nothing. You know you just talk about it and. We did that for a couple of years and I, finally said I'm sick of the talk I'm actually GonNa talk to an attorney and see if we can legally do this. I don't even know how this world works. So. The tourneys told us. News there was never a patent on the product, so the design and all that kind of ever you want and the trademarks Ben expired for I. Don't know ten years, or whatever and the trademarks protects the name's spike ball. So. They're okay you can do you want. We did reach out to the guy that invented it and talked about potentially relaunching together and. Didn't really find a way to make that work, so we went ahead and me. My brother, my cousin, and a few of the childhood, friends chipped in total amongst all of us about one hundred thousand dollars, and we incorporated in two thousand seven and went into business in two thousand eight. Unreal so up to that point. That's just a crazy store like had you're not GonNa? Be Vacation. This might not exist today. One other thing happened on that beach vacation, which was a major moment. Life was I got engaged to my lovely wife Shaab now fifteen years. And to go to Hawaii Moral Michael. Pretty well okay leading up to that trip. Did you have aspirations to one day? Own Your own business. or where is your head space? At that time in terms of your career Chris? By the time, I quit my job and went fulltime, so guess by that time I was working. I think at monster dot com at the time and had worked for big companies doing sales, and you know their jobs that paid well. Well and but there was nothing I was passionate about I. Did the job wasn't really that? Into the culture of the companies I worked for and knows a paycheck, and that was about it and you know. My Dad was an entrepreneur. My grandfather was my brother has his own company like it's kind of in the family. And I was kind of the one that was you know an employee for the big company and. I remember just like. My Dad ran. A few small businesses had some rental properties and stuff and the thing that I love was he had control over his schedule. He got to make decisions and decide what he was going to do each day, and that was something that I was a very foreign to me. Working at the big company I really had no control I was of told what to do and just go do it and I think that's where the sense of apathy of like yeah I'll just do the job, but I'm not going to be excited about our like it, and so I never thought that I'd actually. Launch a company I think I always wanted to, but I wasn't like a creator. And like you know, even though spike balls become as great, a company has I believe it is i. don't see myself ever becoming like a serial entrepreneur selling this and building another one selling going I, love this and I hope to be doing it for a long long time, but just having that freedom I think was what I really really wanted, and if that was going to come in the form of starting my own company great if it was GonNa, come in the form of something else great, but. Having that freedom, and that control was something that I wanted for a while. I just had no idea that. This would be. The form would show up in. So you have that idea kind of sitting on the shelf of ma'am. Wouldn't it be cool to do this one day? And like you said it just stayed as an idea for a long time. Can you identify a specific tipping point, or what was the thing that made? You say okay I'M GONNA reach out to legal advice and actually see if this could be possible. I need to go back and I'm sure I've got the emails, but I'm not sure if it was a bad day at the day job that I was just like I'm done I'm going to start looking into this or I don't remember exactly what the motivation was but I know in general, not a very patient person, a term that my team will hear me it's. It's spike ball. Say as you know I. Really don't like never-ending projects or just talking forever about things. It's like you know. I'd rather use to units of energy planning, and that eight units of energy doing I got a feeling I. You know just having enough conversations with you. Know the guys saying yeah. Wouldn't it be cool if we did this or that and? Enough of those, and I just lose my patience and my heart. I gotta go into action. Unless just start exploring. What's possible?

So they're going to form an opinion. So, you know, you need to be careful about who's taking the pictures. What the pictures look like because I mean, I've seen some bizarre pictures that I'm like what three year old took that picture need professional photographers, you need to spend the money for that kind of stuff. You know, this is a very large financial transaction you you don't get by by cutting corners. So you have to be off from the seller about not only we're going to do professional pictures. You might wanna bring a stage rain, you might have to bring a stage to help get the house into into shape because you literally have one chance to celebrate you come through and they leave and they don't think about your house again. It's over. You want them to come back for the second showing look at it again. So you've got to make sure that the house is is spit up and in the best possible condition, and it's a hassle.

Well, the thing you have to realize you could take a house and have the exact same problem come up. You've got an electric panel situation in a basement wall crack, and you're going to have a buyer and a seller in one transaction that are going to deal with it one way. And then you can have a different buyer and a seller. They're going to take the same house with the exact same problems in deal with the differently. And that's why as an agent you need to be able to adjust to what the buyers and the sellers what their emotions are like what their Bank account allows. You know, there's all kinds of different things that come into play. It's not just how you feel. But do I have the money to fix this? What I'd do. I care if I fix it. Maybe I don't really care if I move, you know, there's all kinds of emotions that come into play. And you got to be able to roll within emotions are very important. But that's why you have an agent. Involved in this that they can take the emotions out of it manage it real amend a little bit. That's actually a great point. Because that's where the problem comes in with the for sale by owners when the buyers and the sellers deal with each other directly, the emotions are butting heads in the transaction. And it's hard for anybody to separate themselves from it and as an agent that's a big part of our job as we can stand in the middle and say, okay, okay. Think about this a slowdown now sleep on it overnight. And then we get back to the other side the other parties, and we say, okay, you guys think about it this way or let me give you another suggestion. Offended by an offer. I know a lot. Defensive because it's. A lot of blood and sweat equity and do that maybe they did the remodeling by themselves, and they take a lot of pride in that. How when you're on your offering me X amount of dollars. Yeah. Well, and that's a that's a big part of why I'm in the office more than these guys. These guys are very good at dealing with the people, and I'm more good at staring at a computer and dealing with the numbers. And I realized that over the years that you're banking. I love to be out there with the people and meet the people and put the deals together. But I'm not good at dealing with the emotions Craig and dawn and all the other agents, we have they're very good at at the hand holding sometimes that needs. Sometimes you need, you know, put your foot down and draw a line in the sand to, but they're very good at going to both sides of that. And I think that's normal.
