"genevieve" Discussed on The KTS Success Factor (a Podcast for Women)
"We need our one on one relationships with our members our staff but we need to really impress upon them to have each other's backs were not there to confide in each other to share. What's going on at work. And maybe what's going on at home that might reflect what's happening in their in their workday so i think if we can teach. Our staffers are not members to rely on each other. Just as much as they rely on leaders. I that will bring everyone closer. And those human connections really really do lead to more successful workplaces. I can certainly resonate with that message. Because i'm really working on teaching women how to peer coach so that they're not relying so much on leadership for that so that's a great tip. So what's the valuable free resource you can share with the women who are listening today to help them understand this challenge better. Why a couple of them. Actually sarah covey club is a great online community for professional women. Women looking to find their purpose. Listen to their heart and also become a successful as they can so it's cub club and similarly little pink book online has a really great group of women who are leaders and who are sharing their stories and their passions and helping coaching each other great. I will Put that in the show notes so that it stands out so genitive. What's one question that i should've asked you. That will help our audience. Take action to address this challenge and then would you answer the question. Oh boy well. I think there's a lot of fear and trepidation coming. Maybe hopefully close to the end of the and and quarantine emergency that. We're we're in. So i think the fear. How might we address. Fear new fears and i don't know that any of us have the answer that works for everyone about to conquer fears. I don't have an answer. I've always thought field if you're in any way and you know just just have to get through it and i heard in a movie something that really resonated with me and it really made me sort of relax if he can relax into it and it was. Sometimes you just have to do it. Afraid and i thought wow that was. That was something peaceful in at that instead of fighting it and being afraid of the fear i would just have to try to make peace with doing it afraid anyway. Oh what a great great piece of advice be. Thanks so much for being with me today. Thank.

It says shot wound head inflicted again. Whatever that is homicide and not homicidal intent. No that's his suicidal. Oh not oh you're late. Stack says suicidal. So that the word that they keep putting they're getting close to it and i listen. I used to work in this industry of having to do these things. I don't know what the hell that is. It's in handwriting with. Is it worth. Oh you're right maybe it is. It looks like an. Am radio with now seidel intent. Yes with homicidal intent and with suicide. Good job mom.

California father fred hall birthplace of father unknown and yeah so and then it says here trade profession housewife So again. I don't know how you can be a housewife when you're divorced. But i i guess she wasn't really working So yeah this is her death certificate which i will also put on the And they're oh here see it says here. She's twenty one. Okay so if you come over here and you click on his and we zoom in because remember it said seventeen eighteen seventeen. You see that y'all seventeen so seventeen and twenty one and again. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with being seventeen in twenty one. I mean if the people were like pregnant at thirteen and married thirteen and fourteen. It's not shocking. I think a in this case. I think it's more. It's not along the lines of that. It's more along. The lines of he was seventeen right. Married divorced with tickets with tickets. I think that's the the the the line i think. Probably he wasn't willing to cross. I mean again. You will never never know because he never woke up from nap that he took after whatever they did in that house selling. So that's my story about genevieve sweeney. Mum it wasn't an insane mexican after a well. I think i think we got that at the beginning of the story that we knew there was something that story. So that is my story and of course we'll have many more to come but You know what we always forget to do not You don't remember because it's been too long.

"The thing when i go back. He had been connected with the parker commercial company in which his father is heavily interest in it should be invested. Mr fuqua owns the woodford. Here i don't know what that is but it's obviously a place and a ranch and jp beats is the grandfather of the murdered boy and he apparently is like some big to do and her parents. Her parents don't seem to be. I don't think it's a. I don't think it says one way or the other whether they're wealthier not. I think i mean i mean. She sounds despondent. It doesn't really matter at you have money to be too despondent. I mean you. Don't obviously something is wrong when you make a decision like that for someone else that that's it it's time to go check out. This would not was would not be a first or last and you know that right not not even close it not even close so yes. There's only there's only a little bit left. So poor hubbard laid to rest the entire town the entire fucking town about what was done in the albany other. Nobody had said earlier on in another article that he was also like super popular with everybody right so it seems like he was probably just a really nice guy. You know what. I mean like in that everybody in town kind of knew him. And that's like a lot of these towns in china. The sanctuary here but some people are assholes and he just seems like what everybody's saying. Just a really nice guy you know. I'm again maybe their relationship again for him it was. I mean it was seventeen years old. And i know people at at that time russell. More adult in the sense of they had to be had to grow up. Much faster But maybe he did love her and maybe he really did plan on marrying her and she didn't think that that was going to happen because she i don't know maybe they just never had a discussion about it. Maybe that was a delusion in her head that that wasn't going to happen but maybe he did love her and he was just all or more or we can think also he was young she. You already had two children. Maybe that's not what he was looking to get involved with john. Look who remind me of the case of the mom who ground her kids because the boyfriend because the boyfriend was interested and she. She drowned her children and she blamed it on. The african american guy are starting to honor and the father that was like the most horrifying shit because what the hell is her name. People who are listening to our podcast right now are screaming at us. You know a are ours. Lord it says a joke. It just came into my head when when i was thinking to kids.

"The phoenix papers had a story which for falling short of the facts was truly wonderful. It told a weird tale of mexican. He'd see hit. It told the weird tale of a mexican who threaten the life of the young men and laid the crime at his door. Additional details published subsequently. Were along the same line in. Never a hint was given a woman figured in the killing the journal minor scored a statewide beat on this important story and that every word which it published was true is confirmed in the account of the affair given in the last issue of the parker post. Its accounts although going into more detail substantiates in every particular that given to the readers of the journal minor it is as follows so now this is like two papers that have collaborated to have collaborated. They have the same facts now. So it is as follows. Because her love for hubbard. Fuqua was greater than her courage to live apart from him. Genevieve h sweeney successfully laid an executed her plans to take her own life and that of the man she loved the tragedy which has inexpressible shocked. The whole community occurred some time last saturday night in the old smith house located on the messa getting the river. So there is no frigging mexican. Could your isn't that desert and there's no desert and who even knows if the story. I mean maybe it's true that this quote unquote a mexican guy walked into their store and threatened them. Who know who knows. But that is not how the shit went down. So it's in a house down by the river all right so the dead bodies of the two young people were discovered monday afternoon and from a number of letters left by the unfortunate woman. It is clear that she shot young fuqua and then killed herself. Genevieve sweeney was the daughter of mr. And mrs fred hall who resides six miles north of parker on the california side of the river. She was twenty. One years of age was the divorced. Wife of william sweeney who operates a ferry at needles and leaves two small children so in the last article that said. She left three So hubbard fuqua. Was the son of mr and mrs b. m. fuqua and was but seventeen years of age. So she's twenty one the first article that i read said he was eighteen right but now this one saying seventeen if he was if he was seventeen and she was twenty one again. It's nineteen fifteen. She's already been married. Obviously she's got two kids but seventeen maybe eighteen. He possessed an unusually pleasant disposition and was beloved by everyone in the community. His tragic end is deeply regretted by his friends in has prostrated his parents with grief while the young people were known to associate together at intervals. It was not thought that the woman in the case was so desperately in love with the boy. She arrived in parker from her home up the river saturday evening after previously writing a detailed account of what she intended to do which he addressed to her mother hidden address her door. So i'm gonna take this story.

"Hello and welcome to breaking the slipper. I'm lucy handsome. I'm megan leigh. And i'm charlotte bond. We constantly discuss the stereotypes and assumptions in popular culture. But we don't often stop to look more closely at the way. Those issues are expressed. I'm talking about language and its ability to explore ideas in a highly nuanced way. Phrases like bad language common pollens even trigger warning or carry social weight and inherent bias because who determines what language is considered bad. What words can be labeled common experience being as diverse as is so to help us unpick some of these complex questions. We have genevieve coltman with us. He has built a whole world or series world on the premise. that language has and is power. So welcome to breaking the law. Sipa genevieve to introduce yourself and your work Thank you very much indeed for having me. My name's genevieve cockman and i'm the author. The invisible live series. Whose main character is a librarian spy. Irene winters of mysterious traveller between pool worlds. And you've said who's life quite often depends on who use all language. Well i'm glad you've mentioned irene. Because actually she is my when i when i was thinking of a kind of some some talking points this episode. That was the very first thing i thought of his rn's ability to weaponize language. And you have a very unique sort of. I mean when we talk about to magic systems. Don't me a marine one where which is cooled. The language and irene can basically tap into this kind of ultimate the ultimate it's almost like a platonic form of the word in a way and she has to be specific about words she uses. She can turn these into two thoughts. Become things sort of thing. Certain thinking along those lines of kind of weaponising words. How do you think that words can lead to physical harm. The there is this link between what we say and what. We do to pluck good example from the headlines. You may remember that one of the things that covid nineteen has been cold is the chinese flu quote unquote and in fact when covid nineteen was given its name by the world health organization. It was deliberately chosen supposed to avoid bias to or against any particular country ethnic group area. Whatever because they that's why they called it corona virus nineteen covid nineteen because something like cooling it..

"These engineers are educated in able to manage this new technology or weld or take digital weather. We living in the police to increase communication between the different disciplines. I love how you put that there because when you said i mean you said you x. doesn't encompass everything it it's what touches everything that to me says it all that means that as a so many of our guests have said through the years. What they do for a living is help people understand each other. So we help the different stakeholders understand. What we're doing that. We helped develop developers understand what we want to make. We talked talk re research and talk to users and then the clients were managers. Need to understand something as well and we help them all understand each other and that is what we bring to the table whether we call it you x. Or not yet we're lifting the question. We're we're raising. The question of does a certain of the discipline needs to be included to make things safer more sustainable or whatever you want to talk about them we bring we bring people in but that makes me wonder of course again as we always. What place does you x. have as term in terminology. When we choose to call ourselves. You xers that sometimes confuses more than it helps whereas if we if we would stick as i've been doing i know over the last sort of removing the title you x and pushing design and communication science which are core competencies. And i like that. About what genevieve is. She's an apologist always but the space that she's been working has changed. Yes well all the way from digital of course into the work that she's doing now. Yeah so that's an anthropologist. Cheap pre did you ex post ex. Probably as it moves moves forward the matures which which imply that we all need to start thinking about what it is that we're bringing and what we need to be aware of what we need to be aware of our surroundings to help the people interact with as much as possible so it is sort of our job to be generalists whereas we most of us have a competency that we bring to the table. That is sort of our core core competency but being able to research and understand many different facets of technology is always always helpful. Let me go to be careful that we don't the many things that we do people in our profession do doesn't disappear we still. We still need graphic designers Zeina's or writers or whatever i mean there's lots of different competencies are still there but some people in our field will be the generalists that need to bring people together. All of us will do it to a degree and even even the Engineers and the developers will do this do this to a certain degree. It's teamwork. Thank you for spending your time with us links.

"I think i think many of us when when we actually think of technical systems we think of the modern digital technologies but technical systems. They've been around weavers an awful long time they have. And it's nice to get to talk to you. And per james and often when i start conversations not usually podcast but other conversations. I'd stop by actually acknowledging. I am and that's partly a story about an older technical system are today. I'm sitting on the lands of the wall and nambi people. I don't want to pay my respects to the eldest pasta present and to acknowledge that this compensation will be listened to on the lands of traditional owners and traditional elders all over the world. I wanna pay my respects to them to and from a pot of acknowledging the place where you're standing with the place where you're starting is whenever i want to think about technical systems or about build a future all telling stories about the future. I like to imagine that most of those stories didn't come out of nowhere right. They start somewhere with someone. And i'm lucky enough to live these days in a country where humans have been building technical systems. Well first closest forever as we can probably get so. There are technical systems in australia. That died back. Forty sixty thousand years. And i was thousand years. Yeah absolutely humans deliberately creating structures that changed the world in order to create different kinds of experiences. I was lucky enough. Two years ago to go visit one. I in a town called warrener was on the new south wales queensland border. So you're thinking of a map of australia. Go two thirds of the way up mostly to the right and the river system and there's a place where a large riba abandons basically and on that band there are a series of stone. Fish whiz archaeologists argue. About how old they are. But the running argument somewhere between four to forty thousand years old in either instance that makes them some of the oldest human built technical structures in the world and these are deliberate right. They extend columbia in distance. Downriver they are a series of stone u-shaped pens that were built to contain the fishes. The water moves up in flows down that river in the fish. Move up that are filters the fish. Basically in flow of their series of fish fish traps all they built like fishnets. That is the origin story of the one of the ancestors decided to build a stone. Fish nets they will lost photographed in use in the nineteen teens <hes>. So a system that is thousands if not tens of thousands of years in the making it suggests incredibly on robust understanding of hydrology of fish behavior. These have been carefully tended and curated over seasons and he is in decades and they were not built for the sake of them are. They weren't because someone said got some startling lying around. We should do something with that comes from quite some distance. It's dry stone. If you know anything about that. Kind of technology said dry stone walls familiar. I suspect in your part of the world as mine and they were utilized with complicated social patents about who tended them who will job to the fish but ultimately what they was in the service of doing multiple nations to gather on the banks of that river and trade conduct rituals exchange information a human at scale and so he has this system that says the humans that lived in that place on the stood stone but amsterdam hydrology. They understood the behaviors of fish. And i thought about people and human society. And so whenever i think about technical systems in my now life twenty-first-century like to hold that idea in the back of my head that it is possible to build technical systems. That are not just technologies right. They are systems of knowledge. They are ways of understanding the environment ways of making sense all the end supporting human behavior and that those things don't have to be <hes>. At all to each other they can actually exist as a system of systems. And so it's kind of this powerful image that sits in the back of my head most is not that system if it lasted that long forty thousand plus years then they have been managing it. I guess you mean they're they're also iterating it. Because the absolutely there's evidence of that system evolving and growing over time expanding and contracting in terms of where the storms will being moved. And of course it's also system that existed through a period of european colonization of australia so when europeans i turned up in that set of river valleys in the eighteen eighteen twenties. They sold the ways. They knew that average won't people had fish there by the time. The townships built there later in that century <hes>. Europeans took some of the rocks out of the river because they were smooth and well shaped and use them to make the foundations of the towns nearby. Thus both changing the way that system work but also taking some of that knowledge and in some ways inserting it into a whole although structure and in the meantime new concrete ways will put on that river to redirect the water so that it could be used for shipping and that sort of changed those systems. but no. you're absolutely right. That's a period of time. So thirty ten thousand years forty thousand years multiple changes in global environment such that people would have had to have thought differently and continued to write and evolved that system and work out what worked and then they were willing to change and how to go about changing it and i think you know for me. I don't know about you to. I've spent a long time silicon valley and it's been a long time around engineers and the notion of site someone right. Here's the thing that system you'll building. I need to get at least ten thousand years out of it. Forty would be excellent but tanzi bottom is other than stewart brands long now foundation. I can't think of that. Many people who are thinking on a ten thousand horizon for a technical system given given that we've we've done those can achieve those kinds of technical systems of those kind of periods of time on scale given the frustrations with with how many the systems we're dealing with the developing six silicon valley valet or in the digital sphere. That feels frustration. Feels were not building stuff with that kind of sam. Not we're not just diligence but thoughtfulness and consideration for how. It's going to do what it wants to should be doing. In the beginning we do. Also i think we have not necessarily thought about technology inside those other relationships and responsibilities. Right when i sort of may one of the things about these fish traps in war and other systems like them is that they want just about starting right. This is not olympics oriented system. We have a phone system. It's not that right. It was designed with the intention of supporting human activity in known human activity and things that mattered and it was designed into the environment rather than pretending that it didn't exist with a blank slate right so there's a. I'm not sure that we miss the ball. I think it's that we allow ourselves to imagine different starting point and we haven't always thought about technologies that way you look back at multiple points in the history of the west in the history of technologies globally. We've often been willing to imagine. That would different starting points and didn't always start with. Oh have this technology. What will we do with it. It often started with this thing. We should look at how to do better. Or i think being trying to think about having a soul or or attention we need to resolve. And we're going to put technology in the middle to resolve it.

We have a phone system. It's not that right. It was designed with the intention of supporting human activity in known human activity and things that mattered and it was designed into the environment rather than pretending that it didn't exist with a blank slate right so there's a. I'm not sure that we miss the ball. I think it's that we allow ourselves to imagine different starting point and we haven't always thought about technologies that way you look back at multiple points in the history of the west in the history of technologies globally. We've often been willing to imagine. That would different starting points and didn't always start with. Oh have this technology. What will we do with it. It often started with this thing. We should look at how to do better. Or i think being trying to think about having a soul or or attention we need to resolve. And we're going to put technology in the middle to resolve it.

A Work Schedule without Childcare
"Had a very interesting blog post. Recently, I thought that detailed away that A. Two Person. Could Alternate things like in a very structured way you want to go into that. So I got an interesting amount of feedback from this not so much in comments on the blog but I heard from people who wanted to share it with other audiences because it just hasn't been spelled out exactly how a split schedule with two working parents. Splitting fifty-fifty could, in fact, work in could give both parties approximately thirty hours a week of focused work time. Mostly during the workday. So none of these like get up at four. I, am and work till I am things which if you have today you have to do but you also wouldn't have to in this sap. So the idea is. that. You have two different shifts on during the workday one is eight to three. And one is one to six, and that is predicated on the idea that it young children who are home are napping from one to three those a rough nap window. We are recording this at two-thirty right genevieve napping and Sarah does not have childcare today. And you know older children could use that time for independent work or for screen time or whatever you wanted to do. The idea is that that is that could be double in terms of the parents. One Parent is on during distraction. So some of their hours are not pure hours but. Mostly, two of them will be able to work anyway. So one party takes eight to three Monday, Wednesday and one to six on Tuesday and Thursday the other party takes one to six on Monday Wednesday and eight to three on Tuesday and Thursday, and then they alternate on Friday who gets eight to three and who gets one to six. So each week it's butts off there and what works out to is then twenty nine hours during the weeks when you have the three one secs shifts and It works out to thirty one hours on the weeks where you have the three, eight, two, three shifts, and the key thing for this to work is that when you are on your job is not just to keep the children safe like being adults present in the house, you are also committing to keeping the children out of your partners office, right so that they can be guaranteed those hours being at eight to one one, the sex or whatever. are focused right like absolutely focused they are not on your they're not dealing with anything, and if you do this that each of you can, in fact, get the twenty five cure focused hours and then between four to six hours each week of. Most likely but could be interrupted because of naptime was or whatever. And both of you would have both some afternoon in some morning hours and so I know that that's an issue that some people be like well, we just split it that she takes the mornings when I take the afternoons. But then what you know, there are some teams that always WanNa meet in the morning because some other person has a different shift of their schedule and so this allows you to occasionally have morning meetings or occasionally have afternoon meetings as the case may be again, this has to be pretty much you are committed to this. You're committing to keeping the kids out of your partners office you can obviously arrange for A. Sub. Credit. On a day, if there was something like you have to pitch a new client, a huge project in the only time they can meet. Tuesday antenna at ten. AM technically Tuesday as the tae that you work on the sex like probably you could arrange with your spouse to get a sub credit that you would make it up for that person at another point but. You WanNa. Have that be relatively infrequently but you know working twenty nine or thirty hours a week with no pay childcare is. Pretty good. If that's a situation that a couple might find themselves in and if they need more hours, you can extend the swap idea to different times I mean. Maybe each of you works from six to ten pm one night a week and that gets you up to thirty four hours a week or you do six to ten am on a weekend or something you each get one weekend morning and you know what it is but. That is basically fulltime ours, and if they are plans, well, you will be okay.

But it was unmistakable and I sat down and I realized, wow, fifteen years in thirty eight years old now I'm thinking was right path. This is the question I have to answer. Really the answer was came to me so fast it was no, you know what was what was the big deal? I was alone and I would be along if I didn't really think about what was important because I realized all of a sudden nothing mattered.

Q&A: What are your plans for school in the fall?
"Your plans for school in the fall A hot button question for reasons. I don't really understand I. Wish people could just choose if they have a choice like what they're doing and then be happy with their choice and let other people be happy with their, as that sounds like quite an idea. I can see why there's third for for different. Because nobody knows what to do, so it's just helpful to hear what others thought process these are, and there is the tendency in our culture at as it stands social media to kind of look up to certain people, and so you Kinda WanNa know what did they do so I get it. I know what you mean like I guess what you're trying to say is it's really a very individualized choice so in a way like you can't look at anybody else's decision or thought process, and use that to make decisions for yourself, because all the variables are probably going to be different but people still WANNA know. Sarah, what are you doing? Yes, so as of now and again, who knows things could change, but I did make the decision to enroll my rising first grader in a private school, which is the same school that my toddler attended? It's like a Montessori that goes all the way through middle school. I really liked the school, and to be completely transparent My husband and I were considering having him make this transition anyway, just because of his learning styles and fit with. The traditional public school setting didn't go completely. Bump free. Last year, so we got three months of distance learning. Yeah, correct, so this was not a fresh new idea. We had thought about it anyway, but then having gone through those months of distance learning. And observed that certain things were just not. You know it seemed I. Don't WanNa. Say like emotional damage, but it was taking a toll on all of us and I don't think. There is. Much learning happening and I also don't want. I don't know I. Don't WanNa have him look back and think of his beginnings of school being traumatic, and therefore have like a forever hatred of learning develop, plus it was just sort of torture personally, so for many and I think our nanny was also struggling completely understandably because you know, she's a fantastic nanny, but she's not really a teacher, and neither am I am able to care for two older kids with complicated teaching schedules while watching a toddler so Wanted if possible something different than what we were doing. And so The school has very small classrooms in his able to separate the kids into pods, and they're planning on an in person. Start to the school year so I Call them they initially did not have a spot and then one opened, so I took it so he and genevieve will be going. And annabel will be continuing virtual school at home through our public school system because for her. Pretty well and so I don't see any reason to. Change things on that note.
Who Were the Wild West's 'Petticoat Rulers'?
"The United States continues to lag in terms of the representation of women in government. As of June twenty twenty, we ranked eighty first out of one hundred ninety three countries. One perhaps unlikely town became known for unprecedented progressiveness a century ago, Jackson! Wyoming In May of nineteen twenty, yes, three months before the nineteenth amendment nationally recognized women's right to even vote an all female nicknamed the petticoat rulers established order in this wild. West, town. Wyoming was ahead of its time. In terms of women's suffrage back in eighteen, sixty nine, it had been the first territory or state in the union to pass a law. Guaranteeing women the right to vote. We spoke by email with Morgan Jawan. Executive Director of the Jackson Hole Historical Society and museum. She said this may be a bit dramatic, but I often say that Jackson could very easily faded into landscape in the early twentieth century. If not for these women, this was a rugged place, incredibly difficult to settle while Jackson had a strong community where everyone helped each other out, there was very little emphasis on government and civic responsibility. It may be tough to believe that an all female government could have ruled a small town in twentieth century. America, when sexism still remains a major barrier in modern politics, but on May Eleventh Nineteen, twenty, Jackson elected Grace Miller as mayor and rose crabtree made Loney Festina height and Genevieve van flack as council members, the five women claimed victory over an all male roster, and crabtree even beat out her husband Henry for the position. This landmark win was no accident, either the election drew the most voters. The town had seen at that point, and in many cases, the women dominated their male opponents spy margin of two to one. While towns in Kansas and Utah had already elected all-female town councils in eighteen, Eighty, eight and nineteen twelve respectively, this election was a major turning point Yellen said the all Women Town Council of Nineteen twenty stepped up and shaped the town into the place. We know in love today. They graded the streets. They expanded electrical service and installed streetlamps. They established the first town cemetery and built the town's budget. Be Able to continue serving community members. According to a nineteen twenty two article from the Delineate or magazine, there was only two hundred dollars in town coffers when the women took office due to uncollected fines and taxes. As the article states. went out personally and collected every Senate due to the town from those who ignored the notices. Before the end of a fortnight, there was two thousand dollars in the treasury. Things didn't necessarily all start out with a Flash Bang. Though Yellen said a funny story I'd always heard all women town council had formalized the square, and until recently I assumed that meant creating the park like square. We see today, but what it actually meant was that these councilman as they called themselves and official documents simply prohibited the grazing of cattle on the town square. You have to start somewhere. As for what inspired the women to effect lasting change. Yellen says their methods and motives were rather simple. She quoted mayor. Grace Miller from an interview in Nineteen, twenty two. We simply tried to work together. We put into practice the same thrifty principles. We exercise our own homes. We wanted to clean well-kept progressive town in which to raise our families. What is good government but a breathing space for good citizenship? While so-called petty coat rulers successfully establish a lasting legacy y'all win cautions that celebrating their history simply isn't enough. She said the story of the All Women Town Council is incredible and certainly something to celebrate and be proud of for the town Jackson Hole has many stories of powerful women, and generally our history is one of inclusivity, adaptability and ingenuity. Everyone had to pull their weight and be open, minded in order to survive. However it still important to look at the big picture and use history as something to learn from, and not just celebrate Jackson did not see another woman in an elected position until the nineteen eighties, the all woman town council was necessary and successful, but unfortunately did not create a new normal, and Jackson was not immune to the times, but it is exciting and encouraging to see more diversity in our local government, including women in all levels elected positions. The women of nineteen twenties still serve encouraging role. Role models for anyone in Wyoming, a visit to the Jackson hole historical. Society and museum offer plenty of additional insights into the legend of these women of the wild west. The museum houses a number of historical documents and photographs of the women and information about their time in office as well as Mayor Grace Miller sidesaddle and the black coach. She can be seen wearing in most photos. They also have a number of exhibits online, and you can do further research through their stand classen research center.

I don't want to be aligned with that. You have to be like you have to care about what you're doing and like be passionate like otherwise like what is the point this under reason why you can't do both. Yeah you know there are a million people in the world and you know I mean. I only need to work with like ten of them.

What are some of your pros and cons about Lincoln like right now? Do you have the live feature by the way to have that yet. I don't have the light feature. I love me either not just playing because I just think so which. Fun So I don't well so my cons are When I got started I instantly. Got Scammed. Cost me by eighteen her jobless. Oh my God yeah so those the constantly have to be really really careful about what we're getting into if you're a new you know In really really. Do Your due diligence about like looking at the profile. You know like everyone says Oh yeah. Connect connect connect next connect with that. You actually have to go look at the profiles. Look at you and see who you're connecting with and actually have a real life conversation as if you're meeting them you know in a really bad bar and do that. Thank you for that analogy. But you know what I did it episode once where you can spend the time and you look at their profile right like they're legit and they're good and then two seconds after the connection you could there mile long pitch and I actually have a friend and she just posted this on facebook where she actually copies that and pace at right-back and the person that's sitting there so confused like send back my shitty spam message. She's like yeah. I did like knock it off like block like they're blocked immediately. I don't even have the time to even do that. But now What I was saying I recorded another episode of actually I send voice messages on linked all the time because if I have my phone off and I'm recording for so long I'll put on my l. Put IT BACK OFF Airplane Mode and then all my social notifications will go off. And I'll have so many messages in Lincoln. It's easier for me which I loved it. They have the voice message Feature now I don't know why I can't talk right now the Voice message feature and so I talk to more people through messengers so much you know from running around like it'll just take half the time typing something out so I'm excited. They have that. I like that as well. I think it's also a personal touch and you can hear someone. Those are fun like birthdays. Oh Yeah Minions over on my God I know that many I know impatiently waiting for my life feature I really. I've been waiting. I think it was I was still in Vegas. Forget when when the published post Came out I was one of the first people to get it and I don't even know why but I was like thank you and I blog. I think I have like over three hundred articles on there now. Now I used to repurpose my thank you. I use it to repurpose my podcast. That's how it now. But there's just so many Ways to utilize Lincoln and thanks for sharing. Although it was an unfortunate unfortunate situation but I myself did a lot of business in Vegas and overseas and with fight weekends and I was eight grand with one deal at the end of the day So I'm still owed that I'll never see but you know you have to be. Everybody has a story like that and I just think it's you know it sucks for us what we need to share it because that's called reality and it doesn't matter what platform were on but Lincoln is more of a quote unquote professional situation. Where you would assume that wouldn't happen. But that's probably where it's going to happen the most in my opinion I think yeah and I still have an open case far as like legal and all the things only was it. Us It was a US person or at least the front was but oh my God. I'm so sorry that happened to you. So what is your favorite thing to do when you're on linked in like how do you connect with someone like what is your? I know how you do it because that's how we connected but like when you are on their for work like how are you using it for work to find clients to share your message. Tell us what you do like on an average day like your favorite things to utilize Lincoln. I connect and You know tell them that. I'm looking to expand my community with like minded business owners and then I invite them over to my facebook group. I have a facebook group called Productivity accelerators in so. I look at Lincoln as the networking group in the morning. Where you go and you have your coffee. You look at facebook as a networking group. Where you go at the happy hour and you pour the wine or the another Tequila and so I and the persons coming more fun and facebook then linked and because you know I like the white in Teela so you know that's also because I so I have lives in facebook so immediately. Try to get them over into my facebook group because then we can have more fun over there You know so. I invite them over there just to collaborate in network over there because I I currently have where options over there other say. Join me and sometimes they don't depends on where they're more comfortable. How do you feel about Lincoln Groups.
How to Home-School Your Kids Like a Pro During Coronavirus
"We thought we'd do a few short episodes talking about life in these sort of more challenging times is everything is in flux so both. Sarah on iron working from home right now. I mean I always do but Sarah tell us a little bit about your situation and how this has changed with the corona virus epidemic going on. Yeah there's just I mean I'm a hospital. Worker and part of my job is clinical and part of it is more of a leadership role with our residents and everything is really up in the air right now. I'm currently working from home because I have a very mild cough and just in an abundance of caution in our healthcare system has Basically required anybody with any kind of symptoms. That could be anything to stay on out of there which is very smart to protect our patients and protect other caregivers. Because you know if we interact with our colleagues and then spent something around then that could be very bad and there's just so much uncertainty with this. We don't know you know exactly how long most people are contagious for like we don't know You know the the the rate of symptomatic shedding that happens. We don't even know how good kids are as vectors. So there's all these question marks and politics aside. I think we're all in the same boat right now as many of you guys are all working parents and we all have our kids at home. Which many view a few of you not many of you? A few of them might be home school. So that's normal but most of you probably aren't exactly no. It's funny because I've written a couple articles over the years about people who work and also home school and it's more possible in these days than it would have been like you know in the in the past that just would have been like what on earth like that. Those two things. Don't go together. But there are so many ways of working work does not need to be done at a particular time in place necessarily for some people and school actually doesn't have to be done at a particular time and place in many cases With the rise of remote learning options. I'm certainly children. Who are slightly older are able to be quite self directed in terms of their learning. And there's actually a number of like online charter schools for instance and I think you mentioned like Florida has virtual school right for for Housebound children they do like. I've had patients that use it. They haven't deployed it to any of the current students yet but I know that platform does exist. Because I've had some medically complex patients. Like patients. Going through Chemo or who? Otherwise just aren't safe to be in the regular school system Have done school from home. And it's considered actually separate from the homeschool. It's considered an actual public school called Florida virtual school. So I mean I don't know will happen. I do think everyone needs to bre- from minute because it's been like five seconds and then there's been like ninety five elaborate schedules. Maybe I'm guilty. I mean I made one although mine is like super non elaborate so involved a lot of screen time so But like I'm not super worried about my kids like losing a ton of ground. Maybe because my kids are pretty young. Yeah like if we do a couple hours of stuff each day and that can include reading will probably be. Okay yeah well. That's the cool thing. I mean from having studied a lot of home schoolers. Schedules Fun Fun fact here. My senior thesis at Princeton was actually on home schooling. That's how long ago I was interested in this topic but it was it was less common than But it the people who do this. It doesn't take six and a half hours a day. Or whatever your state mandated. Instructional time is for your for your schools. You can a lot of that. Time at school is transitions. It's Things that your kids might be doing anyway like recess or eating lunch. It's things that you might not even consider to be part of school while they are. But you might do them on your own like instrument practice for instance or reading right like having. That's that's part of it too like a elementary school teacher is GonNa have their kids. Read do silent reading for Awhile. And so that's part of it as well. So the actual instructional part can be relatively limited and still be moving forward. Mike Kids depending on age have have somewhere between two hours and fifteen minutes in three hours of stuff that I have assigned per day and an hour of that is independent reading. So we're it's it's not like eight hours a day by by any means but it's actually been kind of fun to try on. Dance Day Day. Three Day three here. Oh right your little bit. You guys were one of the first. We're on the district's too close. So we knew it was coming and we have gotten into it now but Yeah no each. We have a checklist each day which the kids have one hour reading. They have thirty minutes of math practice which we have been doing. Khan Academy in Dream Box. Ruth was creating her own worksheets for a while but then she thought better than we have a thirty minute research project which each day we have a different subject so we. I did science than we did. History today was health related so everyone research to different epidemic and they need to write me up a short report on it. You know based on link sort of based on kid age but So they can get writing practice in. How is how is Alex's report he doesn't have to do this his his He gets stories right. We're reading stories than he does Ten minutes of writing practice just just sort of keep working on the hand coordination and then we've actually been working with him through the bedtime math books which I can highly recommend they are by Laura Who did a couple of these there several of these books? But it's the idea that set up like a bedtime story so you read a short paragraph that sets up a topic and then they have four different levels of math problems associated with the story problems in so you read it to the kids in the figure it out a So we've been doing that with Alex for math cool. Yeah we have like our kids homework. They use a program called. I ready for both reading and math. I think it's a Florida state wide thing so we've just continued their normal cycle of that and we use reflex math for math. Which is more just? It's not really like they. Have I ready? Math for more concept type stuff and reflects is just like animals memorizing timetables and Cameron's trying to learn like four plus three. So we do that and then have them write a story Either like a journal? Entry of what's going on. I think those are GonNa get a little repetitive. But we'll see for Cameron. It's more leg. Tried to write one picture and then I asked him to read either two chapters of a chapter book either. Annabel can read it to cameron or he can read his own to picture books or she can like whatever they want but like two books or chapters. Yeah so sounds good animal would you do? She's like I read genevieve green eggs and Ham. Good I mean. There's so many things you learn by doing that right. I mean I. In addition to the reading practice obviously but reading out loud is itself a skill that I would say. Many adults don't do very well. That's a real presenting. Words to other people is not automatic. And so you're absolutely right about that. She's working on that now. Wait we're actually So the First official virtual Instructional Day starts tomorrow recording this on a Tuesday so the Wednesday. Our teachers are starting to send assignments So we will incorporate that into the schedule. It's mostly Jasper. Who's going to have the more formal remote instruction like his different. Teachers are posting assignments. So he's GonNa start mostly doing that. The other kids. I think it'll be more just reinforced like math practice. And things like that so you know they'll still need a few additional things to keep them busy and we are still having our nanny come because currently I still have a lot of work. Responsibilities headache seven thirty. Am Conference calls every day. And then I have to disseminate that information to the residents and trying to redesign a lot of their education to figure out how to do it remotely which is not that easy apparently now also yeah I feel like I know this is a dilemma for a lot of people but our nanny herself has sort of agreed to isolate Incidentally she has like the same coffee shop. So I'm not worried about transmitting or getting or giving her 'cause that already happened before all of this but yeah. I know. This is sort of a dilemma for some people whether or not. It's even okay to do that. There are a lot of college students that currently have a lot of free time. That might even you know I was thinking about. It might even be willing to live in if you have the space to keep them so they could become a defacto additional family member. If you really need some somebody You know you can pay them. They can earn extra money. And you could get your remote work done without worrying about an infection risk. Especially if they're willing to to stay with

"You know nervous you know Rosie like this nice churches and this doesn't have to be like that and so just kind of being realistic modeling things. But the things. You can't control the things that regardless of the job you end up doing that. Yeah like you said you can control and affect how much of a positive experience it is. yeah working hard. Treating the people you work with well and Yeah trying to learn and get better at it. Those are all all positive things that Maybe more important than the job itself. Yeah definitely and yeah just the the work effort Yeah that's really great and I mean it's clear that I have gotten to take her to work so many times. I thought that I love her seeing me in a different role. I'm like yeah for you to you on the same weather so Cool so and As we wrap this up in the last five minutes or so Do we come to any conclusions about fairness or expectations. I know he's through a lot out. There I know is kind of quick to figure that out in our when we've been now office. Yeah not too high not too low figure out you know what straight for her and in the situation and You know keep the focus that you're probably going to be happier if your expectations are not unrealistic and you know if they exceed them then then you happier and maybe it's just Maybe realizing the expectations are something you can manage one way or another and that if you can learn to manage them then you can move that dial up or down depending on the situation or the experience or the relationship or the job To you know to to match whatever you're encountering too Kind of try to optimize how happy you are in that position And optimize you know your growth in that position. Whatever may be but I think part of that just takes Not React I definitely practice but I think it's more just trying to step back and not reacting every situation but You know looking at the situation right but you know what I'm saying. I mean honey give me. It's it's ready but but but you know what I'm saying. I mean if you're just reacting then you can't really manage those expectations. You're not giving yourself time to manage them. Maybe or to think about it And and who knows? I'm probably in a lot of situations. reacting maybe the way to go without thinking about it man. I'm sure there's a lot of situations where you can't over think it and that's that presents its own set of You know issues but We'll have to save that one for another time but yeah I think In the next two or three. If you're available that's what I like to do. I kinda like to Breakdown daily habits everything. I've thought about a couple of everything from you. Know like sleeping habits to eating habits to You know the the way you think about things that I think if stressed or practiced on a on a daily basis is GonNa You know help build those characteristics are going to help build you know those strong relationships and education and work experiences and I think that would be cool.

"Did not like that. Tragic actually talked about my basketball Days last week and Ended up in the same place on the bench Pretty passionate track and track like a big deal for middle school because they hadn't lost in like a lot of years or something and basically everyone did and I really really didn't like it. Yeah I felt peer pressure to the the maybe One last thing to touch on I remember bring it up. I don't know maybe like fifth or sixth grade when I was talking last week When's the first time you remember You know like being attracted to someone. What grade do you remember? Oh my gosh you're gonNA cringe because th th that's a significant part of the education around here yeah I think said fifth grade or something like that And but but I mean I I brought this back to genevieve a little bit. Is You know your educational experiences. Probably going to really have a big factor on how you approach. You know learning and discovering things in the future and Even more so the first few relationships you have a pregnant affect how you view you know future relationships and how much probably both of us would like to control bets. At least they're positive experiences which can be very difficult. But yeah it'd be interesting to hear your take on that okay. We'll let you think about. Maybe we'll do that in In part to but I think that's a big part of people's you know that the time of their lives right you know whether it's not just romantic relationships like all right. I think if you wait too long like if your parents are too protective over you or something like that. I think it might be harder. Yeah not just romantic but with friends family and coworkers. And we've talked about this from the beginning and we've talked a lot about when choosing Educational Experience for genevieve. You know the importance of being somewhere where you could have a a social learning experience And kind of Not even always a good one but maybe one way or not always comfortable so you're learning how to The main thing that's going on main kind of warning that so so yeah which you know I mean when when you look at it. I think it'd be argued that that's the most important I mean it's GonNa it's GonNa Creep into every single aspect of your life. You know how you how you treat people and how you react when yeah when you're treated well or poorly I I was thinking about this the other day and we just have a minute but you know how they say you know everything you need to learn you learn in kindergarten or whatever that goes and and I think that's super simple and most people can agree to that and most people can do those things like being ice and share and stuff. I think I think most of us run into issues when other people don't do those same things you know what we're fine sharing and being nice but when someone else is it nice or does show. Then everything's out the window and we all become monsters because yeah because it's not fair or whatever it may be but maybe that's a topic for another show with like kindergarten ages so normal for them to Tau and all of address what I was. GonNa say it here playing before that to you really develop. It's important to developing a sense of self when you can see how you relate to other people like see what they think of how what they you know like. I don't know yeah but I think that is important but also to realize how much how much weight should I give? Their opinion and some people's opinion should probably deserve more weight based on certain factors. And probably maybe your own opinion should always carry the most weight and that's always a balancing thing and kind of a tricky gray area but Yeah no I I totally agree. People like define you back. You know. Having a sense of how you relate to them where you fall yeah yeah well Katie Appreciatively learned a couple of new things which is always a joy Is genevieve still around? Genevieve hear me Love you buddy. Katie. Are you guys in just little bit right. All right. Thank you for listening and that's it..

"Just go around the choice. Time something Genevieve would do but now kindergarten with just a half day for you yes. There's my dad. Dropped me off the first day because my mom like she didn't want to take it and he might. He found a little girl that he thought looked nice and took me over to her. And it was basically like you're gonNA be my daughters. Yeah well you know what those That other girl. She's probably GonNa Frontier so maybe work both kindergarten back then like all of all of the different cases we've been even weighing education for genevieve like that wasn't they didn't do that. I knew I was going to my school for all the years. We weren't moving. Yeah right yeah. We mentioned that before. Yeah it seemed like everyone went to the same school there. Weren't you know nearly as many charter school right? Yeah definitely changed. Do you remember any other particular events earlier anything that you remember about kindergarten. I remember Just like I can still picture my kindergarten room when I was learning the pledge of allegiance and also like which is your right hand which is but I remember learning how to prop oil Like filling the bubbles for standardized.
"We will be talking about childcare a topic we've talked about in the past but some sort of general guidelines for people to think about as they are making their childcare choices that we've heard from our listeners things to keep in mind as general philosophies because you've you've made some changes recently Sarah Right. Yeah I think I think the reason I thought it would be interesting to another childcare episode since we did talk about it before we'll a couple of reasons number one. We have some new listener so this is always requested topic anything from time to time. It's nice to go back on but also I think people forget that this is an area in which you can't set it and forget it because what works when you have one baby is different than when you have two children and it's different when you have older children that may have different kinds of homework and in fact really. The logistics can change every year or even more frequently. We're finding ourselves. It was funny because all of a sudden you know my I wind about it on this podcast. Enough you guys know. I was very frustrated with a lot of evenings because Josh often gets home fairly late there are exceptions. But I certainly can't rely on him to get home. You know around dinner time or anything like that or even penn time and I was finding myself dreading those evenings but our nanny worked from she used to come at seven thirty in the morning and we used to live fairly far from where she did. Now we don't But she came really early. You know she commuted and of course. I wanted to get her out on time. So she left at six o'clock saliva basically get home from work and she'd be pretty much out the door leaving me to deal with the evening on my own. Which again I did it but I wasn't always very happy. Happy about it yet. So you know all sudden. It occurred to me that we didn't necessarily need our nanny to do the morning. Drop off like I don't know what was stopping me. Did Change because it has to do with our move and the timing of the fact that genevieve goes to school now but genevieve school is conveniently located on the way to my office and I had this block on my head thinking like well. You can't drop off the big kids engine. Vive and then one day aren't any had to be often. Let me try it. It was like that is so easy. Like throw Momma car or sometimes we do it with scooters and and a stroller drop off the kids and the timing actually works perfectly because they need to be there really dropped off by like seven forty five and then. I drive halfway to work. Genevieve's drop-off coincides pretty much. Exactly what that halfway point of one I need to get to work and I can actually get in time for when I first patients there and do the drop off which means. I didn't need our nanny to come so early. Which also meant that? I felt free to ask her to work later. So like you know a cascade and now we have her come. Sometimes she still has to come early. We had a parent teacher conference this morning in Josh. Both wanted to go without being distracted by genevieve so she did come early so you know she's still available to come in the morning and usually it's one to two days during the week that she does come early but a lot of other days she comes in around eleven and then we'll stay until seven thirty and then the hours kind of even out to the same number of our. She was working before. But I get that support in the evenings usually put to bed while she's still here and I am a happier person so but it it just like you know we could have easily just stay on autopilot thinking that you know we had a system that worked and you know she was already working a lot of hours. We'd boxed ourselves in a little bit. Yeah so that that was a big thing and then kind of around the same time. I got empowered because I just came to the realization. My husband's actually had to take a little bit more weekend call with the changes at work and it's fine. It's it's reasonable but he's on call one out of every three weekends. I was just started seeing these thirty three percent of my weekend. Stretch ahead of me for the rest of the next decade and not being able to work out and And I was like wait I hover. Genevieve will be twelve though by the end of that second. I'm pretty sure that you can leave a twelve year. Old a fifteen year old a seventeen year old out certainly leave a twelve year old. Okay maybe I was seeing the next five years and I was like. Why can't I just hire someone to comfort like? It doesn't make me a bad parent doesn't make do anything and then. I'm like oh I could hire someone to come. Watch the big kids while I take her to my gym and so now I went back on. Care Dot com which is where we found any. I found to babysitters and I can talk a little bit about the application process. Because I've had pretty good luck and the last two weekends I've come for like two hours since in the morning so I can workout while my husband's working and actually sometimes when he's not working I'm trying to have them come so that he can. Somebody asked to do some work when he's not working so so he can do that without it really taking me and even so we could maybe both at the same time once in a while so again. It's like you have these stories. You tell yourself about what you're allowed to do but we're grownups allowed to do whatever we want. I think there's a mental block about having childcare when you're not actually working right and I think a lot of people have in their mind that the only acceptable time to have it is from the start of your commute to the time when you walk in the door and you know maybe you get a date night every month or so that you have a sitter to regularly build into your life extra hours beyond that I think makes people you know feel weird and we can certainly explore on this podcast. Y that is like why do people feel that way but I think that is definitely we should exactly first before we get to that though the deeper question maybe you can talk through the ads that you put on mystical standpoint so again we found our current nanny through care dot com six years ago. She still working with us. And I found these babysitters what has worked for me. Is that put an ad and I do. The paid subscriptions communicate and then in that ad. I put very specific things about what I'd like them to respond with. Please respond with number one. Your availability number. Two like two references. Unlike number three time you can meet with me like that's pretty simple right and yet. Most people cannot follow the instructions to respond with those things. So I'm like okay. We're done we're done here. You could follow my instructions on the ad you just sent clearly a copy and pasted thing. About how you WanNa work because you love children but you didn't answer my question so that's a really nice filter on that seems to work. And then you know. I set up interviews. I have a friend so I set up for interviews for a few weeks ago and I will admit to them just cancelled. One of them just cancelled in ghosted. One of them Sent me a text like five minutes before the start and was like sorry never mind and then the other two showed up like beautifully on time professionally dressed like darkness. Good yes Contacts in fact both of them at least one of them like sent me a text like just just letting him on way like just like fully and then I knew they were professionals. The other thing I really liked too is if if this is not to hire someone for primary job but like for these babysitting short little gigs. If you find someone that's hired by an organization you know like one of ours is working for a government organization locally. I kind of know that they're not a government. Organization is not going to hire like someone with criminal record or major issues in. If I can find out that they've been there for a couple of years. It's a nice setting processes well to make me feel safe and secure. I feel less scared about like I know. There's a lot of angst when your child or very little They can't talk to you yet about what's going to happen but at least. I know I have an eight year old almost and so she'll tell me if someone's you know not great but I still feel much better knowing that okay. This person was vetted to work in a medical practice or to work at a daycare. Like they've been through background checks drug testing all that kind of stuff. Because I'm not necessarily GONNA have the the the ability to do that myself although through through carry dot com you John Various things. So that's that's a service you can look there's others to like sitter city. Nanno is an on demand one. There's there's a number of players in this space now that there weren't in the in the past in you had to go through if particularly if you're hiring full-time childcare. You had to go through Nanny Agency for instance which they still exist. You may wish to do that. But you know the people's mileage may vary with with them and I really like references so I I asked. I'm like I want phone number of someone you've worked for recently and I do call and usually you can tell instantly in that person's voice like Oh yeah. This is someone that they've trusted. I mean it's the same as a word of mouth wreck but I'll be honest. People are not always including myself so excited to share their favorite babysitters contact information They may want to dig their own date nights and they don't want you to pull them off the market every Saturday night. So that's why I N N I feel awkward asking for that reason because I don't want to steal someone else's best person when somebody has kids that are kind of aging out of the need for babysitter. That's a great time to ask like. Oh you've mentioned that you're leaving your Ten-year-old or twelve year old at home now like any babysitters that you love that you don't need any more that can be a window of opportunity.
Clothing Hacks for Kids
"The first theme that things seem to fall into were kids clothing. A lot of people had some great ideas in this room. So many of you like to buy all the same color socks for your kids. I feel like I haven't done this because I kind of like buying random looking socks but I get I get what you're saying. 'cause sorting them is kind of annoying will but then each kid would have their own color. Is that what you're saying? Well that would be an idea to but I think the everyone has the same color. It's hard to. How do you sort by size if I'm wondering this probably would work like? Have you had a foreign six-year-old could wear the same by this name? Song cares right. That would be amazing. But you're right. I love that variation if you have five children for example they have different sizes. It could get their signature sock color. You only match that and then you know where it goes or even if it's if it's white with like a some of the Hanes for instance I've noticed. The lettering is in different colors for a long time as Jasper only had the hanes with the blue lettering and SAM had the hands with the green lettering. If you're having to look closely enough to look for the letters I feel like almost defeats the purpose and you might as well have to prepare. Obviously you can also have your children. Your older children start their own socks like this. That's my hack not. That's actually a great hack. So there you go. I actually started kicks this whole thing off. Maybe that's why there's a lot of kids with the fact that might think for genevieve in particular is like all by two pairs of shoes at once and I'll skip the half size like who need tasks is is right. But I'll I'll buy like a size seven and a size eight Sandal because this is Florida and like she's GonNa need sandals year round so it's not like I'm GONNA risk that she won't be the right size especially if I find like a decent couponer sale at zepos It just is just like such a nice comfort feeling like if she's growing him to be like Ooh we already have the next one because Peter only gonNA growth in inevitability until a certain point but we haven't gotten there yet now they can go on for a long time. I'm curious about finding the shoe sales as just that when you when she needs new shoes. You're looking to see what's on sale or Alex. Your shoes recently and I actually. I like that bose because they will deliver in one day so we had a cold snap and our nannies like I lost one of her sneakers so we need shoes. I'm like wells. Apples will deliver by tomorrow so we can beat. The cold snap actually aren't policy so and this is not a sponsor but anyway so but sometimes they have good sales in. Or if you just know the like they're gonna you're GonNa need it like you might as well just by two at once Or I've got twenty percent off coupons that will apply to the whole order so there you go by three by size six seven and eight or whenever I listen work. Obviously your kids are going to change their mind about or if or if it's seasonal. I mean that's the problem if you live in a place with four distinct seasons like you don't know for sure if they're gonNA be wearing the size thirteen in summer or in the next winter so but but there's some shoes that they might wear year round like dresses for instance. I like this next one that we got from a listener says for items that don't get a lot of where like snow pants by. Unisex colors so they can be handed down or make sure your son's okay with the purple. I mean that's the other. The other option there are most most was my side note. Only snow is such a rarity that I don't think Cameron Would actually be be distracted by the fact that we were like in

"And you talking about politics today. That's another So we touch on education a bunch that was that was really good and and I really liked that. We touched on College because that's that's a huge You know jumping off point so deciding whether one you're going to do how you're gonNA approach you what you're trying to get out of it I think is super important And maybe waiting to you know exactly what you want to get out of it Because in the end it is knowledge it is education That whole goodwill hunting quote. You know Things that guy from Harvard you spent two hundred grand on education. You could have got for a dollar fifty and late fees at your local library. I mean the education is is available especially in this day in all my goodness. I mean So I it's not about Accessing the education necessarily But maybe more so finding What you WanNa do and what you can actually use To make a living Because me personally. What I'm interested in isn't necessarily what people are paying you to be interested in type of thing. I mean I I wouldn't go to classes but then I go to the local library books about chess and other stuff that I would be interested. It's amazing they have Had just online you can do the these mooks right. The massive online open class Yeah and you can take a class at Harvard. You can take a class. You know In kinda just audit and and sit in on these classes via these these mooks these massive massive online m o o c whatever that first time is massive online something online classes but his opportunity to do that. And Yeah so the world is open to to do whatever you on just between like you jump on Youtube and you got a million Ted talks. Oh how many educational podcasts are out there earlier. It's it's just yours for the taking. You can't possibly choose at all no so But having those options and Yeah so And of course that leads to work but I guess in closing genevieve and I appreciate Jamie for helping. Clarify this Yeah in before college. You know having these conversations I mean so far. She's wanted to be a cashier a ballet dance instructor a teacher. And which will probably change one hundred more times but just having those conversations and And Yeah just discussing the pros and cons and that education or learning curiosity. It's not a school thing. It's kind of a live thing and it's going to enrich your life regardless and Yeah just being flexible in and going from there yeah any closing thoughts job shadow rate experience. Get out yeah get experience And see see what's wrong with the real world like job shadowing. Is I think not necessarily an internship but just shadow somebody You know if she still wants to you know when she's fourteen fifteen still thinking about maybe ever job shadow a dance instructor. Yeah I think. Job Shadow just a day or two. It's incredible that builds your network of friends and people you know I'd love to see that in school is actually people from the community. Come and talk about their jobs. I mean how many jobs are out there that you don't even exist. Oh Yeah my job. Before I had the industry existed. I think a lot of people fall into that. You know so. Yeah Keep Your Eyes Open and Kind of know what you want your education to get you and hopefully it will love Ya. Genevieve and That's it..

"See Episode Four Bill. We've talked about politics and and I think this is one where It was kind of obvious where we we try to You know create a bridge to how this might be helpful for you. Genevieve you know politics Kinda governing people and that applies whether it's a country which we kind of spent talking about the problems on the country level but for you growing up I think it's really gonNA Be With you know that relationship bucket it You know you're making friends in kindergarten And you'RE GONNA be in groups of two people and five people. Oh in ten people you go to dance which what had ten people in your class. You have teachers you have parents and all these are different. French structures where You're either the kid taken an advice or lessons Or you're the student trying to learn something thing new or you're the friend To one or more people and I think even at that point. You're finding that there's different power structures for different reasons Sometimes to give you information but in the sense of The friendships I think even on on that small level. You're going to have kids or people that are want to be your friend for different reasons and you might want to be other people's friends for different different reasons but How they're going to be everything from you know the way they want the relationship to go whether that's a power struggle in kindergarten not enough that means playing hopscotch instead of jumping rope but As you get older you know and you get into You know these Colin political groups of different sizes of two. I'm five ten people You're going to deal with a lot of different people with a lot of different perspectives. That want to accomplish a lot of different things and trying to do that. Peaceably with everyone on the same page. as the group size gets bigger it gets exponentially harder. And so so you're left Probably feeling like you know what the best decisions are. At least decisions are going to benefit you the most and then left with a lot of people who have different feelings on that subject And then I think that's why it's important also to do you know realize everyone is is working with a different set of information which is probably why they want different things and and one accomplish it in a different way But I think it's important not to get frustrated Maybe do what you can into effect the situation positively knowing. It's not always gonna go that way but yeah yeah I mean you're going to be dealing with politics for the rest of your life whether it's on smaller large scale and can't just maybe understanding that's going to happen and not expecting people to think like you Or even the majority of people even though it may be crystal clear to you why is is the way it is which can be frustrating But I think it's even more frustrating when you expect people to think like you. They don't act like you think they should your it's You're GONNA spend a Lotta time not liking people further further. Why they're different than I think? maybe a healthier perspective would be realizing everyone's different and working from kind of a place places mostly ignorance and that way. I don't know if I want to say not to have your expectations too. I for people because I'm not sure that's the case but to some degree that that's what I'm saying because to save you you from being disappointed by people and having that fill up your head space Just focus on what you have in common and in working with that as a basis poacher different to the.

I think that's another part of this. podcast not talking about these things with you and others and hoping that clarifying vying Evolve my thoughts but you you mentioned that one or two episodes. You did that And like I said this is. It's this is early. There's not a lot of structure to it or knowing where it's going or how it's going to go in the future but You have all these different ideas and how they connect with each other and how they're gonNA help genevieve. And that's another thing with Joe Rogan. PODCAST is. He's got so many for so many hours. He hits the same subject so many many times but kind of from these different angles is he always interviewing other people. I mean listen. He's always got somebody that your plan Yeah well I mean. Bill's been here a couple of times. And so you might see a lot more acadia coming up here. And we've seen it is held forty nine and genevieve Jenex great really and like you said she's she's grey says she could absolutely come along but he's interviewing people but is more like this. It's that's what I like about it. It's a conversation but like as he ever on there by himself. Do you ever plan to. That'd be a lot of people. Don't show up. We may very well happen. But but that's the thing he'll he'll be interviewing some astrophysicists that I've never heard of love and the best part of the interview. That conversation isn't about Astro physics which they may touch upon because they've got a new book or whatnot it's about him talking to an astrophysicist about something that's completely has nothing to do with astro physics whether it's politics our family or some current event So what I hope to do is Kinda come back and touch all these subjects with different The people of different experiences and perspectives and Hopefully that'll be helpful thoughtful. But no and I I really enjoyed talking with you today. So I think that that is a great idea Not only because not only that we think will be helpful for genevieve but the things that we think will be helpful for us. I think most helpful for us to you know think about okay. What do we need to work on next terror in? Yeah right I mean you talked about relationship stuff even something. That's going to be helpful for us. US Not only be beneficial for her but you know she probably listen to that sometime in the future too. I mean she's good chance you're GONNA be gone through the same things but So Yeah I had a lot of fun Genevieve can you say goodbye. She's not really say goodbye by genevieve.

Well that is excellent That's what I love about kind of this format and the conversation side is it goes in organic directions and I think that's I think one you learn more not not only us to but to the people listening as opposed to going. I mean it's good to have stuff in case you dead air whatnot but I think You tell us a ton about you. Even though we didn't get into your childhood or The kids well. But that's the thing I I think it also shows there's a lot of information insight there so we can look at doing more with which I would love to do it anytime. Yeah so we we. We definitely need to do that. a couple of things at the end I was thinking of is now that I look at the parenting side but And maybe bring it up but yeah we'll say that for next time okay but Genevieve Love Ya and so that your GRANDPA and GRANDPA loves you too and you to Katie Yes thank you Katie.

"genevieve" Discussed on Noble Warrior with CK Lin
"So I'm so excited to him at friend. GENEVIEVE on Djembe blew my mind mine a while ago during the conference she said are telling me about sexual orientation Obviously Amana. I'm curious. No her point of view as especially as in sexologists as an expert. So thank you so much for being on the show be absolutely. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited to dive in with you so rather than ramping up. Let's just jump right in. Yeah great perfect. I cool so you blew my mind with the whole idea of the collateral climax verses like you know everything in Repeat that conversation Salau. We could I think my my listeners especially those who were listening to a curious about in August could be actually benefit from your knowledge beautiful. Yeah well one of the things that I find myself speaking the most on is is educating people around the like the multitude of pleasure that you can have in your body like there's dozens and dozens of orgasms awesome and climaxes that are available to everyone no matter the gender for for the female gender Vulva bodied people. We've got you know there's so so many spots internally that often aren't even activated And they can allow women to reach such high peaks of pleasure that they can actually go into into altered states of consciousness and the clitoral orgasm is only going to give you a small release. And then there's deeper orgasms like the ace spot or the X. X spot or the g spot or the cervical orgasm that can actually make the body go into a state of like altered consciousness similar to plant Madison Journey. Pretty amazing so you just said you. Freeze Zab never heard of before the X.. Spot in the woods the second one as five a spotter never find cervical orgasm. I've never heard of these before. Eclipse oral yes. For sure but go into a little take more that would be the communists. I yet so inside of totally incited the the vaginal canal rate. The reason that most people don't know that they exist is because the vaginal canal. Most women harden the canal right. So it's pretty tight and that makes it hard for the nerve endings to respond to pleasure so one of the first things that I encourage people to do and they start a sexual shoulder. Journey is to learn to relax the walls of the vagina. Or if you're with a vulva body to vaginal person to start to almost during penetration notation with hands or whatever allow them to just be in hold and breezy and you'll notice the walls start to relax of the outside right and then when that happens you're going to be able to hit different nerve endings. So there's areas kind of beyond g-spot into this the g spot and then if you go deeper m maybe like an inch or two you're GonNa hit on the spot you hit. The spot is kind of behind the anal cavity rates. There's all these like and some I've worked with some women that have spots I didn't even know existed right because it's simply a way that the nervous system in the nervous system kind of moves down the spine the a lot of the nerves basis that holds for women in the vaginal canal. So you've got all. Hey this bundles of nerves down there. That a lot of people haven't even activated yet is pretty pretty fun so yeah for men to Oh interesting. Yeah yeah so I guess this is. This is really a Intrigued and and and think that this is an unusual topic for the podcast. Me On the show about The root chocolate to me. He is equal to the the sexual organ and me. It's one of those things that it's the primal instinct that we have right do Paul. Oh create two at a Tutu to to get pleasure out of this very important aspect of it but you know culture. Why came from Chinese culture? I they came to the US or actually have both sees in the West but even in both cultures. We don't actually quite public publicly. Talk about this aspect is very important about life so if you don't mind telling us a little bit about against the challenge of being a even know how to call you an expert in pleasure in sex is that would that be a proper way to address that totally works. Yeah absolutely with. What's the challenge of actually being an expert in this area and was the was the pros and cons? I guess yeah thank you. That's beautiful question in one that I don't think I've ever been asked so. That feels really nice to be able to speak on it Stepping into this mission was very scary for me because because sexuality is the elephant in the room that no one talks about right people get turned on all day long and no one talks about it and to you be the person that saying. Hey I want to address the thing that we've shut down for centuries I get you know. Get Hate Mail. I get a lot of people telling me see that. I you know all sorts of things that had your boundary lists. I've had and you're like no boundaries. told me it had no boundaries because talk about tax Had people tell me on on a slut that I'm a bad mother right I've had people in my family. Tell me so you know. Shame on me and say you know. This isn't okay. So there's a deep burial of this of this part of our our nervous risk system and its societal and honestly it's painful but it drives me more than anything is when I see I see people builds telling me these things and asking me. Oh you should take down that post that you just made or or why are you always naked of people. Say things like aspirin where you need to be because freedom right. My my job is to show people that we don't have to live constricted anymore. We don't have to live afraid anymore of the power within us this creative eight of life force that sexuality is. It's it's more than just the root Chakra. It's it literally runs through the entire body. And it's what makes us a live It reverses the aging right it can create wealth and abundance it can change the neurotransmitters in the brain like an extremely powerful mechanism awesome and we have it within US and and to get out there and tell everyone right that means that they can't go and buy their antidepressants essence anymore ray. That means that their way of living is going to be completely shut down And changed and so I'm going I get that people are going to give me some backlash slash and I'm okay with that Because it it feels super important to help people wake up to the power. That's within them. I think part of it is that they're projecting their own their own internal resistance around sexuality around pleasure on you the fact that I mean. Obviously I'm not an expert but you know it's huge percentage of women and men actually mostly women have an achieve of female orgasm specific stats there but the fact that you are able to ask the help them even get you. That baseline is a huge step up. One Yeah and can I tell a little story around this to happen. So in April of this year I was is doing an event and one of the audience members in the event the event was meant to be a sensual experience. Not a sexual experience right right and I was on staff for it. They brought me in to be on staff and to kind of disrupt the audience. Because that's kind of what I do need met me right. I like to go in there and like shake things up so I went in and I did what I do which was really just me being in my erotic energy and this woman got so triggered that she got up on stage got on the microphone and yelled at me and started crying and raging and I at first so all the construction of Ono. I'm bad I'm wrong. This is an okay and then I started to feel this deep compassion for wow. This is such a scary place for her. That I'm awakening just by my being this like I didn't even do anything. I didn't say a word just by being nece to be that triggered And then we had this conversation afterwards. The woman I found love and compassion for each other and then fast forward a few months. She comes to one of my events and she said that night. Eight put me on a path of massive sexual awakening. I didn't realize how much resistance I had to my own sexual freedom and she's like I'm I'M A. She did my entire workshop. We were getting really sexy and she did the whole thing and she was still alive and liberated and that's it right like sometimes ends with sacs actually always with sex. We kind of need to trigger people first behalf to get to the we have to get to the place where they hate you or where. They're Matt or whether sad. That's what awakens that couldn't believe that sexual energy in the body I we allow that to be there and then they can start to find tatum so sharing that story. Yeah talked about earlier some of the possibilities of this work you said that aliveness. You said the that gateway displeasure of these to a likeness. At least twelve these to some of the things things that you have mentioned if you don't mind going into those stories lead but maybe there's a few stories can share with us even adding your other people. What's possible like why should people care about not just the pleasure park alot very important show? A lot of people love it or all people love it. But in addition to that What else is available going on? This is the pathway to ones on radiance once I always love my clients at the end the lowest say. ooh I get it tentative. It's not even about sex. It's not so much bigger than that. And you come to me for sex and pleasure and you leave with a completely different in life. So it's it's huge changes. Everything and I think the best way to demonstrate that as they're a little bit of my own story I can give snippets of it and you can always ask more if you want but I was the opposite of how you see me now so very shy very afraid. I had no money. I come from very little money My family you know just kind of scraping by as a kid I also come. I'm from pretty severe trauma sexual abuse from like three years old all the way through so it got to a point where I couldn't even be in the same room room with a man because the smell of a man would send me into trauma slots extreme so I didn't leave my house. I had a chronic illness Where I was in basically fevers every day And I actually started the journey. The Awakening Journey Ernie. Why it's kind of keep going? There's always like layers but one of the moments that have me work with masculinity and with men was when I realized that I was pregnant the boy and I had this moment I remember going to central park and crying and thinking how am I gonNa love a boy right. Men.
