"gerber" Discussed on MEDIA INDIGENA : Indigenous current affairs
"And saying that this happens at a time when segregation laws are not being upheld and they're being set back and so the right turns itself towards abortion as another way of shoring up white supremacy. I don't know all of that kind of history, but that makes sense to me, right? As we were talking about the Gerber babies on the pro life signs or who they're worried about. But the rest of us are going to get caught up in this. So these are things I'm just thinking about. I don't really study them and have any great insight. January? Yeah, I don't know that the topic of abortion is without its stigmas within indigenous communities. I think there's still a lot of nervousness around even broaching the subject of abortion if you bring it into community. And therein lies one of the issues that prevents women from even believing they have the right to abortions. You know what I mean? Culturally speaking. So I would like to see that addressed first and foremost and you know what I agree with this. It's not only women who have abortions, right? Oh, absolutely. But I can't disagree that this is these are laws that are targeting women. People who identify as, right? And so anyway, but yeah, I do want to acknowledge that. I mean, I know people who are not women who had babies. So I don't know that I don't, I can't speak to forced sterilization. Of course, I believe it exists. And I believe that that is very, of course, damaging. And the imbalance racial imbalance of that practice. Even though I'm kind of thinking to about if colonial white governing bodies are concerned about being the populations, the numbers of people of color and say the United States or even within Canada. Then, but we're still we still can't have autonomy over ourselves unless we are in a financial position to have that autonomy. Do you know what I mean? How do you call yourself a minority, even though we are populations brown people are greater in numbers, but we don't have the financial power to break out of the title of minority. Do you know what I mean? So you're talking about just our capacity to fulfill a full array of health services, including reproductive related. Yeah, that. Yeah. Yeah, yes. Yes, there's that. And just the idea of trying to control the population through forced sterilization. Our populations. You know, something I've not seen brought up is just making an explicit link to this emergent discussion around genocide and how this is another means by which that's being achieved. Absolutely. And I think, you know, I mean, it's a little more challenging because for some, any way to make the case because, you know, these are just healthcare folk doing this. In these individual cases and people are like, well, how does that constitute a state campaign at the state level kind of thing? Well, that's what we mean by systemic. You can have these disparate actors all working in the aggregate to achieve this outcome. We've run out of time. So any final thoughts in this regard? Well, I was just thinking it's all eugenics, right? I think forced sterilization of indigenous women black women of disabled people since eugenics, right? This has happened to many populations around the world. And then the promotion of the birth of a certain kind of baby of particularly white women in middle class women supposing, you know, there's these memes going around showing up. A professional woman writes college debt drinking wine and eating a piece of pizza versus a self actualized woman with four kids and a husband. So there's that a promotion of those kinds of views of womanhood and family while the promotion of that kind of family results in the idea that indigenous people should be sterilized. You know, that they should have their children taken away. I mean, it is largely eugenicist project. The question for me is, what is the kind of convoluted thinking around criminalizing.

Pete Davidson Is No Warren Beatty
"Because there's an article in the paper, some idiot reporter is calling Pete Davidson the Warren Beatty of his era. The fact that he's allegedly dating Kim Kardashian obviously was the big, the big grenade pin to pull to write this article, that makes him the big lothario of all time, the fact that he had a string of pretty ladies in the last two years, Kate Beckinsale, Ariana Grande, kaia Gerber, Cassie Davis, if you want to include her as a looker, Margaret qualley, I don't think she qualifies as a looker either. She's about as sexy as a two by ten, but you know, either way, celebrities, actresses, blah, blah, blah. And also one other chip. Bridgerton, some chick in one of those stuffy shows I can't watch. So look, he may seem like an unlikely Romeo. You know, the paper said, he's not overly handsome or cool. He's in the painful process of having his mess of tattoos more than 100, remove with lasers to help him win acting roles, and he's a pothead. And all this is why some of the world's most attractive women just can't get enough of him. In a world jam with narcissists imposes creeps and phonies, Pete is refreshingly real. He's the star we need right now. Oh, please stop star. Star we need. He's on SNL. Warren Beatty was not only gorgeous, but charming and usually talented a writer director actor producer. Pete Davidson walks around in a vintage T-shirt and high top sneakers with no socks with a cigarette or a joint hanging out of his mouth. Give me a

"The limits of their creativity to the limits of their resistance to discover someone within themselves they have never met before. It's like they discover someone in themselves who wakes up and says, hey, here I am. Where have you been all this time? Why haven't you listened to me? And that's what it's like when the entrepreneur wakes up inside. We call him, we call her the new entrepreneur. We call that individual, the creator. We call that individual, the one who's driven to discover the reason for being here on this planet. The reason for being born in the very first place. And imagine if that's not just my making this up, John Lee. In fact, every human being on the planet, this is the premise we're starting with was born to create born to create a world fit for God. And in this process, here, from the very first beginning of our lives, our job is to discover who that is and to plumb the depths of that one to the point where that one is leading us forward toward the realization of our lives, purpose. And all of that is to be discovered. But it has to be fund to the very depths of it. With an absolute conscious determination to not quit, not stop, even if it gets to be painful, even if it gets to pissing somebody off in that moment, something real is going to come to pass. That I'm absolutely convicted of something very real is going to come to pass every single time. Michael, you have such a way of infusing such passion into your voice, which makes you such a great podcast guest. I know fire nation appreciates it so much because this is an audio only format.

Wonderful John Lee. Well, thank you. Thank you. It's always the like to speak with somebody who in turn is impassioned to pursue exactly what you're here to with entrepreneurs on fire. The dreaming room is not just something to do. The dreaming room is something to pursue with every bit of the energy you can muster. The dreaming room is an ingredient that.

"And getting to a process where you can iterate faster and get commitment to design faster. All within the end to end solution and the pattern design solution that they use every day. I'll just add to that. So now the schools with 3D design experience already is it easier for people who say come out of FIT or Parsons with some 3D training to get into it than people who've been doing it traditionally? Yeah, and we have all types of users. We have hundreds of schools that are customers and teach acu Mark and 3D to their students. And then we have traditional users that have been working on for 20 or 30 users themselves. So we have user types all across the experience level. And more and more schools understand that they really do need to offer a 3D today to their students so that those students are equipped when they get into the industry. Mary, as you've been talking to people through those platforms, have they been talking back? Have you been getting different feedback than you normally would when you go through social media to talk to your customers? I don't get a lot of questions in the environment, but I do also do a three Saturday morning classes a year ago when COVID started March last year. You know, I figured we're all stuck at home. So we might as well find a way to be productive. And a lot of people have trouble in their Monday to Friday schedule to break away and learn a new technology. So we started a Saturday morning session in I've had well over a 110 days to these sessions, and that's a great interactive environment where people can ask questions. They have an opportunity to learn the new technology at their pace and I can really hold their hands as they go through the process. So that's been a great opportunity for folks. Thank you both so much for coming and talking to us on the show. It's been wonderful talking to you. And we hope you'll come back and be part of the show again in the future because Gerber really is so much a part of how the fashion business works. And that's certainly what our show's about.

"Yeah, I saw that on your website. And but it's also a lab for us because like for example, with savute and we just did a little integration of their tool into that workflow so you can pick a design AI based with their tool and then actually it runs through the process and you can sew it in our center. And so with these proof of concepts, you can now go to brands and companies and say, look, here's how it works. You don't have to believe a PowerPoint, send us some patterns or whatever you have will actually make something. And then that can then lead to an actual pilot project with a customer. And so it's a much more engaged way to work across the whole spectrum from your partners all the way through our customers, the brand and the manufacturers, you actually try to do more smaller proof of concepts rather than selling a huge engagement or project and then it takes forever to close because there's a lot of money at stake and the results may or may not be there. So trying to derisk technology investments for companies is one of the other ways we try to work in a lean agile way. And it helps the brands because it takes it from being a theoretical idea where maybe they had been discussing internally about an on demand offering and expanding business models, but when they can actually go to the innovation center and see it real tangible without put, it allows their own internal teams to have more valuable conversations. Right? Like, oh my God, we have to change that. Yeah. Are we switching? Yeah, they can see that it's possible. It's achievable to have that setup. And sometimes I mean, you do the virtual simulation, which is great by the way. 3D really helps to avoid a lot of these physical samples. But in the end, sometimes you just want to still make it and make it very quickly and easily. And so rather than having to wait weeks and weeks, being able to yeah, we did another collaboration with an Adobe substance artist in Brazil, where he developed several textile prints concepts. And we were of course simulated them in 3D, but we were able then to actually create the physical garment. Wow. So where is this innovation center? It's in your office. It's in your office. So it's actually the eye building on the 19th floor. We've got 19,000 ft² up there and a beautiful terrace. But about, I would say about not quite half but maybe a third of it in one corner. We actually have a factory line. So we have a digital printer from core needs. We have a Qatar cutter and a area with sewing and then obviously the number of servers with software. And we can actually it's like any factory and one of the reasons we put an actual working system in place with all these partners is because we found that there's a lot of digital talk, but at some point it's just people just feel like it's noise. Digital list, digital, that's 3D and it's just human nature, right? At some point you just have overload. And here with this, we can bring people in. We can walk you through the whole process and it's happening while you're there. So within an hour, we can make you know, so when you come we'll snap a picture and cut pictures and we'll make you address. So there's a suit. There's a front end where you can use the 3D look application to get your measurements and go through an order process where you can choose the style preferences of the garment. Your preferred textile print and then your custom order goes through the whole process, the digital print file is generated printed, cut and sown. Right onsite. So it's a great end to end workflow. So I know there's $362 million acquisition on the table from electro, which there's a vote I think in a few weeks. So you probably can't talk too much about that. But then in terms of what that will allow you to do, can you address that? No, absolutely. I can talk about what's public and it's actually not that complicated. So we've signed our lectures signed an agreement with our owners, which is a company called American industrial partners. So we're fully owned by private equity from today. And both companies agreed to essentially technically select drug buying all of the shares of Gerber and will be combining these two companies. It's been approved by various entities, including works counseling France, which is an important thing for lecture. And on our end in the U.S., there's still antitrust approval. That's pretty standard procedure that this needs to go through. We expect that to be clear end of this month. And then as of June, we should be one buying company. And a little bit on the background as to why and what it means, you know, in this industry and I talked about it, you know, where there's so much technology and also, frankly, investment needed for our side to help drive this transformation both lecture and group of shared pre aligned vision of digital transformation and bringing together this entire in a workflow from design all the way through production. And so we feel it's really going to enable us to move faster. So we're not thinking of this as one technology replacing the other on the contrary. How do we combine forces to really continue to drive that acceleration to implement a lot of these things that we've been talking about today and do it even faster? So hopefully as of June will be able to roll up our sleeve even more and start that journey like any integration there's going to be some work to get that. But you know, we're all very focused on making sure this is a great thing for customers and we're just stronger faster together. Mary, I saw that you've been doing a bunch of videos on Instagram. I think YouTube as well. Facebook after the customers and Facebook. Can you talk about your experience with that and what's been like to kind of be the video face of the company for a while? Yeah, so I've got a long history with Gerber. I've been for 33 years with Gerber working on acu mark since release one. So I've been through the whole history with our current platform and we started developing a 3D solution later than some other companies out there that also offer 3D solutions for the apparel industry. And, you know, we do have a very large installed base with our backyard cat system. So there are many pattern making users out there that can benefit from adopting 3D so I've just been working towards encouraging our installed base to look to 3Ds of solution to help them accelerate their development, their pattern development process, as well as the product development process. There's so many benefits to using 3D.

They weren't buying, you know, and so in fact, some of these tools we provided at no charge to that to be able to switch to production. But they needed other things from us like some consulting and some production equipment. So that's one and what we've also developed out of that is a process we call it digital readiness assessment. So we'll spend an hour initially it's just an hour and we have a little questionnaire with the company and say, okay. Explain to us which tools you've adopted, you know, what part of the value chain are you covering? And the goal is to identify where's the biggest bang, you know, biggest return for them to invest. Because there are a lot of technology options. That doesn't mean you should be doing all of it. And so what we try to identify, where is really the biggest value. Buy something off, get an employment. And then once you've ripped down the benefits, it's always easier than to go to the next step. You can still develop a vision for where do I want to be in a few years. But that's one of the ways we try to work with companies to say, okay, understand, you know, what's the biggest priority for you? And then we've created some new financial models to where you have subscriptions or leasing that don't require all the upfront investment. And so between all of those things, we've gotten to a much quicker return on investment for companies. And that's what it really takes for them to be able to invest and save money and be successful. And the impact of the PPE program was really substantial because factories that had closed due to COVID were able to reopen and bring their employees back to work once they had been set up to manufacture gowns or masks or body bags or some of the other items that were needed shield space shields. So it was very important project. That's amazing that you were able to give that support. So I'm sure that opened up, you know, just a lot more exposure for you also. Yeah, and we supported not just Gerber customers, but, you know, anybody that came to us that needed help, we help. It definitely pushed us out of our comfort zone, Catholic. Sometimes that's what it takes, you know? You get a little uncomfortable and try new things out and that then results in good things not just for you for your customers, but everybody involved. And so that was a great example for that. Say somebody is going to start a fashion line and they're going to have a small studio with three people in it. What do they invest in in terms of Gerber products to get started without biting off more than they can chew? So first of all, sometimes we tell them don't invest in anything. Here are some people that have the tools that you can work with to get you going. That may be one way to start it. Because forming partnerships is actually a really important part of how to grow your business. So that isn't just applied to us, but it applies to others. And so one of the things we also learned from the pandemic is, you know, if you can network people, if you can match make and that helps them to get to the next level, then they will be able to afford the next level of their own technology. But sometimes you just say, look, you know, you need production. Here are 5 factories that can make the type of garment that you're making. You need some patterns. Yes, we can give you typically pattern making is one of the first technical tools that you really need to make a garment. Well, there are a bunch of pattern makers out there also ones that use Google software. What other software that you can tap into? And so we also believe in these networks are going to be more and more important where people will have more platforms and ways that they can collaborate with each other. So sometimes it's don't invest in anything at all, but here's some people you can talk to. And then hopefully your business will grow to the level that you can then invest we can help you further. Are you seeing more collaborative factories emerging? Yeah, actually that is one of the things I have watched over the last I would say a couple of years, but especially more recently where you have one example that comes to mind is in Arizona. There's a group called fabric, which helps, I think it's a couple hundred designers that they have in their network where they centrally help provide design support services and production support services. And work with the designers and designers can come in and leverage that infrastructure and basically get help turning their creative ideas into real products. And so we do see more and there's some startups around that that are looking at some very interesting concept. Another one is called refashioned. Fashion OS that you might be. Yeah, exactly. So we support them at least in Eric. They've got a great vision. So, you know, it's not just, you know, what can you sell them right now? How do we help them get their vision to reality? And so networking a lot with people. But you know, companies like we fashioned or fabric are really thinking about this more as a network of people working together rather than silos of different companies. Right. And they also have to decide, you know, what part of the value chain they want to own in-house, we talked to a lot of different startups where individuals had come from a specific discipline in the industry. And that's the part of the value chain that they're mastered, they can keep and own ad and then outsource other tasks. So it'll vary by company. For the startups, how open are you to collaboration? Do you have open APIs or where do you have APIs they have to request access to interface with your technology to build stuff? So there's the business side and there's a technical side Charles from a business perspective first of all, and we've put in place a partner program where, you know, one thing is being able to exchange software. So by the way, savit is another startup for what was right now. Yeah, I based design and so for example, you know, we have a base agreement where we can use their software to better understand how does it fit with our systems and they get a copy of Akbar 2D in 3D so they can develop and integrate their technology into ours. Then yes, there is technical component some products have pretty simple interfaces. I mean, it's even text based file exchange. And all the way to sophisticated APIs on the PLM side where you can we've got the API documentation that you can plug into. So there's the technical components. But then we also have base marketing agreement. No, some of these companies I mentioned, we agreed we have a basic marketing template where we say, okay, let's do some webinars and thought leadership together. You're working on a topic that's very complimentary to Gerber and vice versa, let's go talk get out and share with people what's possible what can be done today. And then the third component is we work on proof the concepts with them. You know, you can write up agreements and have partnerships and do press releases and all sounds great. Then it goes nowhere. So it's always great to find a real use case. And we mentioned our office in New York. It's really innovation center. What we have there is we have a micro factory setup where you can make products on demand. So maybe we got to show you cats because you're close. Wow,.

"Will continue to play an even bigger role, I think on the design and development side. But then there's the whole rest of the workflow to making sure that garments do really fit to what a consumer wants. If you visit a car factory today, there are more robots than people. But if you visit most garment factories, there are more people than machines. So what does this look like for the fashion business as we move forward? Are we looking at the Toyota engine? You close the hood and drive for a 100,000 miles and it never needs to be serviced or is it still going to be interactive for people doing manual labor? Yeah. So I think there are a few components to this. You know, first of all, the design side, you know, there is a definite obviously creative element in fashion. And we see technology more increasingly assisting humans in new ways as opposed to replacing them. Definitely on the creative side. On the production side, there's some automation. You can argue the cutting machine is take it way out of the manual cutting and it's a lot more efficient. Sowing today is still very annual. It's not something we do directly in terms of automating sewing at least not at this point. There are some companies out there that are getting into sodic and automating it. But it's incredibly difficult. And I would say we're probably 5 to ten years out to get that same meaningful automation. But while that's happening, I also see an opportunity really for new more tech oriented jobs for the human. So, you know, people won't go away, but it's for how the tools consist of to do greater things. Thank you more sustainably. You know, leverage things that have been out there collaborate more with each other around the world to create unique things. So yes, if you look at any given manual hand cutting, was replaced by automated cutting. So that's where the robot so to speak takes over. But that person is not able, you know, with the right training and support to go do higher value added activities. And that's where I think we as an industry also need to keep that focus on education and training our workforce to, you know, frankly, work on really, really exciting things and have that opportunity. Are you able to see where the garment industry is moving physically in the world as trying to get too expensive? Where are they going? It's actually a great question though. It's one of the things I spent quite a bit of time on strategically, because I mean, you could see it going from the Western countries to China initially China wages have gone up that Vietnam Cambodia, Bangladesh, sky, the next wave, and then more recently, some of the African countries, especially Ethiopia, we're heavily in the focus. And on the one hand, we see some of that will continue for a little while, but you can also see, especially like Vietnam is a great example. It really actually isn't that cheap from a labor cost perspective anymore to make it Vietnam. But they've taken huge steps in automating what they do and how they do it. So you still find a lot of manual labor there, but it's evolving. And we see this happening around the world, which is also why we believe in new manufacturing models because you can only focus on that low cost labor perspective for so long. And then you're going to run out of physically out of countries at least on this planet to go do that. I think we have a ways to go a little bit on that. We do, but there are other trends like COVID, tariffs that support the notion of not having a supply chain that can be disruptive disease. And actually, we ran some economic models that, you know, we as an industry have been so obsessed with the lowest possible unit cost production that we've forgotten about the end result of what happened. So for example, if you make a garment very low cost at single digit dollars. But then, you know, you ship it around the world. You have a ton of inventory. You give discounts on 50% of it and then you throw 15 to 20% away because nobody buys it. If you actually then do the profit calculation on that garment, it's not that low cost anymore, right? So there's some automated on demand models that actually do compete financially very well with Apple cost production. So it's also mindset. It's not just, you know, trying to chase the needle as we say around the lowest cost. So three DY's and you were talking about customers and fit and obviously with online sales and returns have increased incredibly. So does Gerber actually have technology that can then be utilized by the consumer? Technology, right? That you can use from your phone, I think. Yeah, so maybe I'll start with that then Mary can add a little bit to what we're doing on 3D. So from a typically we've been a B2B company, but increasingly, we're helping the businesses engage with the consumers on ecommerce side. So for example, you know, we have a partner that we know several partners that we work with that can capture consumer data around measurements, sizing. And then we process that data to then make sure that the specific sizes get made. We tip our software typically doesn't engage directly with the consumer, but we help brands and retailers engage and collect that data and then process it. Mary, do you want to talk maybe a little bit about 3D in some of the things we are doing in that space? Yeah, so both with 3D and made to measure our systems can leverage the consumer data that come from these applications that the consumer can use on their phone. So for example, by taking a couple of photographs of yourself standing in a kind of a pose posture, applications like 3D look can generate a 3D avatar as well as your body measurements. The avatar can then be used for 3D simulations. And the body measurements can be used to automatically modify the patterns to your fit. And we've offered made to measure solutions for many decades. And if you think of the original model would have been the consumer walks into the retail brick and mortar environment and gets measured with a tape measure and those measurements would be uploaded to an ERP system. And then get pushed into acne Mark, our cad solution. So today, in place of that, the consumer can take the photographs and the measurements are extracted from the photographs. And then that data can be pushed from the brand or manufacturers, ERP system right into our cad system. And we also work with companies like true fit that actually are more on the consumer side that track consumer behavior purchases than any great with our PLM system to marry that up with the tech packs and the right products that the consumer might like based on their previous behavior. PLM is product life cycle management, right?.

"Across the Internet are carsten newbury, who is the chief strategy and digital officer at Gerber technology. Other great to be on. And Mary mcfadden, who was the vice president of cad product management also at Gerber technology. Hello. And welcome to the show. Thanks for having us. Gerber technology is basically under the fashion industry. It holds it up. You guys make the technology that makes the digital side of fashion possible to a large extent. You have a couple of competitors, but in most fashion studios you walk in and you see Kerber machines. Can you talk about the different components that go into what Gerber uses to enable this entire chain of ideation out to production and logistics? Yeah, so we'd be happy to all take a shot at it and marry you can add to it if I miss anything. So again, great to be on. Yeah, we've been in the not just fashion industry. We called flexible materials industries, but fashion is our largest segment. We've been in this space for about 50 years, innovating, and essentially what we like to say is we help close the world. We don't make close themselves, but we help others do it. And we provide automation tools, both software and equipment for the design development and production of fashion. So that includes things like on the frontend side. Pattern development software, 3D simulation software, PLM software to help with the now increasingly digital creation of products. So from an idea to the finished product ready to be made. And then we've got the production tools, be the machines, the cutters, but also a lot of software around optimization nesting planning, more the development tools on the production side that help make the garments. And then we also have a pretty vast ecosystem of technology companies. We work with that help augment that process that we support. And we do have a long long history in the industry. Mister Gerber invented the technology for cutting textiles and soft goods in the 60s and we even have a display in the Smithsonian. Mister Gerber was awarded the national medal of technology. Up there. That's an interesting point is that we often talk about fashion tech and fashion technology, but fashion itself is a technology. It is something we use to protect ourselves and it's all engineering. It really is. There's a style aspect to it, but foundationally, it is technology. We have woven something around ourselves to protect ourselves as we go out into the world. That's true. And we have many customers that do advanced uniforms protective where ballistic gear, military so we have customers on all different aspects of the spectrum in terms of wearable product or as carsten said soft materials, whether it's automotive seeding, windmill blades, aerospace. You know what, one of the super exciting aspects I find. A lot of obviously there's been a lot of digitization in the fashion industry as well, especially in recent years, ecommerce has driven a lot of it. But compared to other industries that have gone digital as well. Like the book industry, right or music. The unique aspect of close always being a real end product. I mean, people are still going to wear something real, right? So this is, I think one of the unique things where you really have to bring together that reality aspect of garment that needs to fit well. It needs to look not just look good, but it needs to fit well and feel good. So to bring together that digital and the real component. So what is Gerber technology do in order to assist in the consistency of a fit or is it and maybe this is a crazy question? Is it all still just reliant upon input? It's actually a great question. Mary, do you want to start with that? And I can add to it or because Mary deals a lot with fit. And I think that's where some of our roots are actually helping designers create fit. Yeah, and for successful brand fed is the DNA. For that successful brand. So we need to provide tools that allow our customers to reliably achieve that consistent bit. Starting with a strong software system for developing patterns for creating the great rules to get consistent sizing tools to allow our customers to measure applications and on demand offerings. And 3D to allow our customers to analyze the fit of those patterns that they are creating all within and end to end workflow that lets them deliver that final manufactured product. So the 3D portion of it I imagine was huge in terms of assisting on the Fitz side, right? Because you're not having to wait for a garment to put it on and say, you know, what was wrong with that pattern? Right. And what's so important about the 3D solution that we offer is it's got a very powerful cloth simulation engine and our goal is to create a simulation that really represents the true physical pattern. So the role of a pattern makers to create patterns that achieve the designer's intent and the fit of that garment on a specific body type. So when you do the 3D simulation, if there's an error in the pattern, it's really important that that gets shown in the stimulation. So we don't always want to be able to create just a really nice image that you might present as a marketing image in the pattern development process. And when we're validating graded sizes in 3D as well, we have to make sure that it shows the true effect of the patterns. And it's just one more point on that. 3D is one component of fit. And this whole notion of fit has evolved a little bit because first it was there's some made to measure, obviously that's been around. But fit was more about making sure the right, the quality of the production is what you designed it to be. Now increasingly with consumers wanting to have their own personal product wanting to have its fit them. Not just being a size, but fitting them. The technology actually rolls through the whole process. You know, it's starting with being able to integrate with technologies, that scan, body data, or take that off pictures from a person translate that to patterns that the scale to the right fit of that person, not just a small media large, but you know, it's your size now. And then turning that through the whole process into production to make sure that that can actually be made in an efficient way, still at scale, but fitting an individual. So 3D is played in the.
Why Mealtimes Are so Much More Than Feeding and Manners
"What is going on when a baby who is one year old is throwing food down the first time. That happens very likely an experiment. Let's see what happens causing effect dropping this food. Oh it goes on the floor because babies are explorers learners and they're experimenting all the time so our baby does that and maybe they feel something from us. They probably do feel something from us. Because ellison gop knicks extensive studies show. That children are born with a lantern. Type attention as opposed to what we start to develop more as we mature which is a spotlight attention so with the spotlight attention. We can get distracted and miss something going on over here. Because i'm focusing over here. Well a baby actually can't do that. They are taking everything all the time. So even if they're not looking at us they're feeling us. They're sensing our emotions. They're sensing if we're comfortable for sure. And it's not something that they can turn on and off this lantern is always on there always taking us in but if we don't see this as a basically competent person that we're dealing with then. We're probably going to be less likely to be attuned. So if we're not being attuned in the situation for not tuning into the person than to us it might seem like. She's just randomly throwing food. She doesn't know what she's doing. Just sort of more absent minded. I'm not intentional. I'm not aware but what are baby is actually doing their even the first time that this happens where we might say. Oh whoops you drop that down and it went all the way down to the floor while you're eating. I want you to keep the food at the table please. And i'm approaching this whole activity as an intimate activity. I'm not distracting. My child and i'm not going to be distracted myself. These are prime caregiving times. Where children really need our full attention and we will get more out of it to that way than if we're just trying to get food into a baby were actually kind of teaching or engaging or president. They're responding to us and it will feel more satisfying for us as well. So feeding with the riot. Approach with magda gerbers approach. It's not just about fueling our child with food. It's about fueling our relationship

You know the bible relates The basic instructions before leaving earth. I haven't been all of the pledges. Pick my grandma versus that really mean very solemn to me so in terms of religion that's more religion falun. Gong is organic spiritual way of life. it's very loose in organization. There's no money. No churches or senator centers that you go. It's not certainly not a cult as demonized is to be as some kind of evil cult. I don't know if you've got some of the audio or the video that i sent you if you'd like to play some for your for your audience but the following gong On what the nazis. With the jews which the nazis kevin kennon for the moore raw material. That have been bankrupted. Brutally persecuted announce slaughtered. And the reason. Why falun gong was targeted As a spiritual way of losses because the teachers the principals of truthfulness compassion and forbearance. It emphasizes character building Ways of success in mind sits virtue rather than some extremist cultish fanaticism as a true path to heath To health and squelch elevations. And i think. I've tried the exercises. I think there are wonderful. Sits of exercises very attractive principles. Follow them not being practicing with all the literature and there's nothing cultish Even religious about. I won't see it's just a innocent group of people are very loving calm group of people who have been practicing for many years now and i was in the st george because of the healing effects and that is wild. Ccp targeted the fallen gong for their organs because they saw such an increase of people practicing the spiritual movement. I tell you one out of every twelve chinese national citizen out of one point three one point. Four billion people the largest population in the united states in the world Second largest economy compared to the united states in the second largest military compared to the united states one dollar will be thirteen.

YES Spaces: What They Really Are
"Back to talking about. Yes spaces i. I want to give a little background. I i used the term. Yes space actually called it. Yes place i think and my post in twenty ten called baby interrupted which was about how we can encourage a long attention span and encourage play encourage learning by being careful around interrupting children beginning as infants. That's a normal thing that we all do that. I did before i learned about this approach. We don't consider that babies or young children are doing something of great value so when we want to show them something tell them to look over here or are we just want to say hi. We tend to interrupt and one of the ways that we interrupt children playing is when they are getting into inappropriate things or doing something unsafe. So what gerber said is give them a one hundred percent safe space which means enclosed and a lot of people don't realize this part maybe they've heard the term yesterday's but they don't realize that actually mean the space is enclosed so that a child can't wander out of it into an unsafe situation so this kind of space. We set children up for success for them to explore as extensively as they need to within reason of Long after lunchtime. Or there's another reason that we need to interrupt than we do but as much as possible we want to give them free rein to do what children do. Best which is explore learn. They're the masters at this. So we trust them to develop their skills and follow their own interests in this safe space where. We're not having to say no don't do this. Don't do
Todd Weaver on Purism and the Crypto Principle
"Yes so just get right into it. I wanted to start a bit broad and maybe a little bit of the background not back to they one. But i actually used to here so we're all pure ism users here. Excellent on the show today. A lot about open source hardware coming from you guys do software and there's open source software obviously let most. Bitcoin is worth their salt. Know about the idea of open source software free and open source software but this idea about open source hardware. I feel like. I used to hear that more around the pure brand. I'm not sure if that term is still used. Maybe haven't been paying attention but before we sort of go deep into pure ism and what's going on as of late and and sort of what you're trying to do in general you just give us a quick background for those who don't know what is the idea of open source hardware is sort of a nebulous thing and then maybe how does pure isn't fit into that. Yeah i'm going to say it is kind of a nebulous thing Because there's really There isn't o. S. h. w. open source hardware specification But the term in general I'm gonna say is diminished depending on what you're talking about So there's things where schematics can be released and is considered open source hardware Or is it the after release the actual gerber files to may do. The manufacturing of the pcb pba is then considered open source hardware or. Is it where you're able to three d print a case. So there's a lot of components go into hardware and so what we try to do is define a very specifically the things that we are releasing and the things that we are not releasing or are unable to release. So when you're looking and it depends on the product itself so the most Let's say liberated hardware that we have is the lebron five phone. The least liberated harbor we have is servers. And so then we have everything in between
Building The Build To Sell Business
"For your business be valuable. It has to be something that will work without you and that is really the essence of a valuable company. That when you take the owner out of the equation for a moment does the business continued to thrive and that's really the essence of all of the works that we do is is structure and this is not a new concept. Michael gerber course. The very famous author wrote the ems sort of coined. This term work on not in your company similar principles but the idea is for your company to have transferable value could sell it effectively. What it has to succeed without you. When i read built to sell i wasn't at a million dollars in revenue. I was that probably about ten thousand dollars of revenue. I just left running the marketing department at an early stage startup. i started a professional services. Business i had brought on my first client and i didn't know what i was doing. I was in what i call the. Atm phase which is anything for money and somebody needed some marketing help. And i said great. I'll take it. And fortunately for me. I ran into the podcast and the book and while creating a system where the owner can be replaced from. The business is one of the primary takeaway. One of my biggest takeaways was building a set of systems and products for services business. Instead of saying i'm going to come in and solve your problems it was. These are the things that i can sell. You hear my products. Here's how am packaging the work that i'm doing in a formalized systematic way which led me from being a. I'm a random marketing consultant to. I am someone who does brand development and marketing strategy. And here's how. I think about the differences between these two products and because their products. Here's how i seldom. Here's how much they cost. Here's how long it takes to deliver.

My Child Says No to Everything
"Son soon to be four years old has always been a bit emotional. He's our first born and we have a two year old daughter. however i've seen an increase in his emotions progressively over the last two years. And we have a new behavior that i am totally stumped by when my daughter was two months old. My husband's suffered a massive stroke and this event was a catalyst for a series of rough months with my son. He would have pretty major tantrums. Lots of crying and whining and lots and lots of no. This was all very understandable given the shakeup of a new baby and then dad being very sick my husband had a long tough recovery but after life start to settle back into our new quote normal. Post stroke we were able to work with our son on the tantrums and they seem less and less frequent however this no behavior continues and has gotten even worse over the last six to twelve months. Every single thing we ask him is no. It's time to go to school. No it's time to go outside. No it's time to go home. No it's time for a birthday party. No it's time for santa to come no. Sometimes it is as simple as an emphatic. No and sometimes this increases to more of a tantrum with crying and lots of no no. No every day starts with him saying no. I don't want to go to school usually with some crying. Drop off then when we pick him up. It's no. I want to stay with crying. On the way home. We have tried ignoring acknowledging redirecting talking about it but no matter what we have done it seems the no behavior continues. He even says no to getting presence in fact when it comes to giving my son anything new. He not only says no but adds that he wants to throw it in the trash. He's very adamant about not wanting it. I usually tell him. We don't throw presents or closing the trash but we can put the way you don't have to keep it once it's out of sight. He is sad and says no. I do want it any thoughts on how to best deal with this okay. I i'd like to give a little context and talk about the word. No and words like that. Our children us. What's going on here. What does this mean. and then i'll offer some suggestions for responding in a way that's helpful and maybe talk a little about what gets in our way as parents so i a little about the word. No this word is one that children realize very young has some aumf to it has some power to it. Because it's usually the first word they hear from us where we're stopping them correcting behavior even if we say it very very calmly. There's an edge to it. No they sense the power and that word when they become toddlers and have a developmental need to be more autonomous than they often. Latch onto this word. No as a way of asserting self asserting. Well i have a different point of view than you. This is me so it's very positive word in that sense of parents could see it that way. I know it's hard when it seems like our child is just defying or resisting us but it is an expressive powerful word. That children use even in situations. I remember magda gerber used to always say you offer your toddler an ice cream cone your toddlers reaching for it. And while they're reaching for it they're saying no they need to assert that will and disagreeing with us is one powerful way to do that so no is often more about a feeling for young children than it is a true command in this case it seems. This boy is definitely using no to express a feeling or feelings of overwhelm. I can't handle this right now. i'm not sure i'm feeling stock. I don't have control over this situation. We don't know exactly what he's saying. Although the fact that he has a two year old sister is certainly a big part of it and his father having a massive stroke. Yes there are very out of control feelings. That children have when their environment changes like that. When the dad that was always very able to take care of them and pick them up or whatever can't do those things necessarily and other family members are frazzled and upset all of that is going to feel like a big wall to a young child. It's going to be overwhelming. And that's okay. They can pass through this but not without some struggle and what. He's seems to be expressing in all these situations. Is that struggle. That emotional struggle. That is again much more about feeling flooded and overwhelmed about this than actually being decisive and commanding saying no. I've made this choice. And i don't want this. It's not coming from that reasonable

Popular baby foods "tainted" with toxic heavy metals, report says

"What do I do now? How to get to work in the early days.
"Amber. Riley said that's the key to life making your own path. Set your own rules because there is not a set rule. There's not a set. Look there is not a set anything you make your own rules in your life. You make your own decisions. I remember the very first day. I woke up and went to work as an entrepreneur. The weeks leading up to that day were filled with anticipation and excitement. I felt like i was doing it. Finally i was starting my own business. And then i sat down at my computer and i paused. Where do i start. What was i supposed to do like literally. What tasks should i do right now. What action should i take. And suddenly i was hit with a surprising and unsettling feeling i felt adrift or un moored. I felt like i was floundering. A bit. I mean think about it up until that point i had worked in normal nine to five jobs and in these jobs i would come in each morning and i would work on the projects that had been given to me. I knew my company's goals because someone else set them. My direction was really clear. I largely just had to execute and now here i was living the dream and i had no idea how or where to start. You see many entrepreneurs leave the comfort of their nine to five jobs in search of freedom and no doubt. You'll find it here. You'll find more of it than you ever thought. Possible out here and that can become problematic especially in the early days because there are two sides to the freedom coin. One side is opportunity the ability to build an experience. Boundless growth the feeling you get when you realize the ceiling has been removed on the amount of money you can make. It's incredible but the opportunity side of the coin is balanced by the other side. The responsibility side the side. That says yes you are free. You are completely free and now you must chart your own course set your own direction. Put wind in your own sales. No one else is gonna do it for you. The responsibility side. It also says yeah. There's no ceiling on the amount of money you can make but i've also removed the floor as well so choose your next steps wisely so today i wanna talk about some tips for helping you put the wind in your sails to chart your own direction and your course and made some of the common pitfalls that entrepreneur's experience in this situation the opportunity that freedom brings is balanced by an equal if not greater sense of responsibility and one of your many jobs as an entrepreneur is to accept that responsibility. So let's dig in there now before we go on. I wanna point out one caveat for today's conversation. I'm assuming you've done the check. The box work of setting up your business. I'm assuming you formed an llc or some type of business entity. I'm assuming you've figured out a way to accept payment even if it's in the form of a paper check i'm assuming you have insurance and the barebones tools you need to execute your work and if you don't have those things start there but with that said if you've got all that and you're ready to take the next step. There are two buckets of action. I suggest new entrepreneurs take and they fall under the heading of working on your business and working in your business now if you haven't read it yet. A man by the name of michael gerber wrote an incredible book called the e myth revisited. Why most small businesses don't work and what to do about it. E myth means entrepreneur myth. And in that book he makes the distinction between working in your business which is doing the actual technical work that either creates your product or makes up your service etc. So like if you're starting a graphic design business. This means actually creating designs for people. If you're a plumber. This means actually performing plumbing jobs for people working in your business is what generates revenue for you now. In contrast working on your business is what creates the actual business structure around all of that work setting the vision and goals for the business creating systems and processes that run each aspect of it
Some baby foods have high levels of toxic heavy metals, report finds
"Levels of toxic heavy metals have been found in some baby foods, according to a recent report from U. S congressional investigators. The House panel is calling on regulators to set limits on the amount of heavy metals permitted in baby food, such as lead and mercury. The report examined foods from nurture Hain, Celestial Group, Beech Nut Nutrition, and Gerber. Companies claim they meet the current standards set by the FDA, who says these elements enter the soil through soil, water or air and cannot be completely removed. Currently, there is no federal standard on these toxins or warning to parents about them.

George Clooney reveals how and why he gifted 14 friends $1 million cash
"Shall we talk about george clooney. I'd love to. I mean it's great stuff. What a joy to wake up on a tuesday morning and just find a profile of george clooney and cheeky magazine. I mean i can't ask for much more in this life First of all this is the man of the year man of the year issue. An annual occurrence for gpo usually accompanied by a party or parties. there's some kind of fun. Dj set online slash than doesn't sound fun. at all. i mean george clooney is just like the de facto celebrity to me. It's just like you've for for me. Just because i love him so much more so than brad pitt. Who is you know. One of our animating figures. Of course their friends part of both their charm. George clooney has always been lovable because of playing doug on er those politics both of which are part of this piece. But i just feel like this was like best case scenario for a celebrity profile. What stood out about it to you. This is slightly awkward as we noted. Your husband wrote this but you know. Just talk about his work. Yeah let me see. I was not involved in this process and just reading it. You know differently than i feel like i know the man who wrote this you sleep. You wanna say through this these interviews were done over. Zoom as the as the peace explains for a number of reasons but for the health and safety of everyone in this time so like they were done in my house on and afterwards i was thinking about the fact that george has such a distinctive voice that i should have just stood outside the door and listened to george clooney talking like through the door. Because i don't think i think act just uses the zoom without headphones for these interviews. I don't think he wants to bring bluetooth into this experience. And screw it up even more. So i i regret not standing outside the door like a creep and listening to george. Clooney talk and i didn't do that so i really. I have no behind the scenes information. I just absolutely charming. And that's why you want from george clooney right you want him to be a like cary grant but for now and i just like a hugely charming informed person that you want to spend time with. I honestly want that more. From george clooney than i want like a movie directed by george clooney at this point or movie starring george clooney. You know there are many movies starring. George clooney that. I really enjoy but i just. I'm happy for him as like capital g capital. See george clooney. And what's nice about. The profile is that he seems to know that too and he's just like let me give you some more george clooney stuff and let me just tell you about how much i love my wife for awhile and let me just tell you how acting works. I thought that stuff was so fascinating. I love it when really talented people just like switch into their genius mode and like i'm gonna tell you this and i'm going to tell you this and he tells a story about e. r. n. Any tells another story and he's just like annotating the scene and it's like talking to someone who knows a ton of stuff. I thought that was fascinating. He shares an anecdote from steven spielberg students. Billboard tells them to stop moving his head so much. And i loved that because doug ross did move his head a lot especially when talking to carol. You assert like trying to like burrow into the moment. And it's like dude. You don't need to your doug fucking rossier water. Attrition your renegade pediatrician. He also so happy that zach got him to talk about the time he gave his fourteen friends. Each one million dollars in cash on honestly the details are so much better than you ever could have hoped for. This story came out. I think like almost two years ago. We talked about it at the time. I think randy gerber shared the information. Right yes and then. I think we talked about it on jam session and zack knew about it. And then zach wanted to ask you about it. So i'm gonna credit usually with that particular. Thank you thank you so much. Thank you so much zach. So george clooney like basically impersonated danny ocean one day. Although i think the other takeaways like owed any ocean it's probably a lot like george clooney and he got a florist ban that he rented for the day and drove to an unnamed location. Downtown los angeles richardson. huge vaults. Like just stacks of cash literally. It's kind of like the way they portrayed the vault in die hard three. you know. there's like all that cash. What i guess the vault i was imagining i skipped ahead. Because there's an ocean's eleven here too but keep telling this story you're doing great. I won't interrupt. He goes down like multiple levels below ground and just gets tons of cash and then puts a a million dollars in two fourteen different to me. Suitcases he says that it's much lighter than you would think. And then he loads it into the van and he drives away then. He gives his friends the money. And yeah the reference. The correlation to ocean eleven is shocking. It's stunning right right. There is like i can see the duffle bags of money notions eleven being carried out of the blasio and it is absolutely that and they also commandeered a swat car that like it's very similarly ban also underground the whole thing is like it's hard to believe it's real george clooney. Actually i made that up. It's not how i did it. And he just was like. This is the antidote. I'm gonna tell. I also surprised because it's like so close to the movie.

He's a digital marketing expert and he brought up stuff that has been subject Kirk and I've talked about four ever and it was so much fun for me and after I shared it. With the team that that are craziness is actually being corroborated by other people's craziness. But today we're GonNa talk about what some of the stuff I talked about with John which is how we hear top advisor marketing want you to market like you're a business not just like your some shop that was kind of a mom and pop sort of thing. So Kirk, where do we even begin with his brother? Yeah I mean the first time I heard of the idea of what you just said I'll paraphrase Michael Gerber. and Michael Gerber world renowned. Business consultant uses the words own a business, not a job. And I haven't gone here for a while in our conversations but. Mindset is everything. To, be more successful a high market in your business. We've talked about a year. WE'RE GOING TO BE WE'RE GONNA get into it today a little bit more so you need to think about Your financial practice like a business and you need to market like a business to say your thoughtful sustainable success. And the first title of our episode for this. Actually when we thought about it was market like own business, not a lifestyle practice and then you and I both kinda pause or like hey. Any sense either like why does it really matter what kind of business or what size of business you have as as a fast visor or professional advice giver Because if you have a lifestyle practice, wouldn't you want a powerful marketing machine like a system? To produce opportunities. To build brand awareness and have a system that you don't have to. Just kind of runs bills momentum in your business. So this is for a really everybody, every style type practice or financial firm. But if you WanNa be successful, you gotTa market you run your marketing like a business and stop Dabbler. Yeah. No more dabbling man what one of these US said a little while ago on one of our podcast is that you should give yourself permission to market to who you want to market to instead of just kind of casting net net out into the middle of the ocean and something that you're going to talk about now is this idea of kind of how you do that you've referred to that is growth pyramid. Would you mind breaking that down? Absolutely. I was actually speaking with a friend of hers coach. Joe Lucas. And he has a certain way that he loves to explain. How advisors should invest more in marketing adult adult think about marketing. these actually I named the Growth Pyramid for fun. This is through conversation I had with. Joe Likes to break down these three things. I wanted credit for stuff that I got from somebody else but he likes to talk to just about this way and he was he's bag on. And I've taken a little bit further as what we do some branding is really. One third of how you view. Higher GonNa Grow Your Company. and. That's your story, and then you're town that story to. Is Really important that you? Invest in having a story that really resonates with the people that you want to work with. Right when you said a complimentary Market like you have a choice of who you attractive business. That's a big deal for financial visors because I don't think most advisers thinking really have that much of a choicers too difficult to get there as not. True. The second part of the Growth Pyramid is marketing. And that's really having a system of staying connected people, attracting people to your message and being able to talent share that story on a consistent basis as many places makes sense for your audience aren't so being Omni present. Across social media in the digital landscape, SEO websites, thinking of all these things that can help you stay connected and telling sharing a story on a consistent basis that's marketing in need you need to have a system to make that out. If, you're if you're staying connected with. Axel get back to how these are all interacting the second. The third piece. Is Business Development and that seems to be the place of the focus of most fanshawe advisers in their mindset is. I don't need a system as much. I just need wherever I I just need to get. People in my office to talk with them. What's the most direct obvious to get to those people? That's for most advised focused And Joe Season, his businesses that when you can figure out how to get all three of these things working. Now you're running like a business but if you're just business development another word for that sales, you're just focus. You've got a sales mentality not American.

The Power of Scheduling: Tips for Parents Working at Home
"One mom just had her third baby and she was telling me on the phone. The other day that she thinks, I need to do a podcast all about scheduling the power of scheduling because she has discovered this recently, and it's changed everything for her she and her husband both work, and they live in an urban area. And she had a maternity leave which is just about to end. So she was home for a while they only just recently were able to get their childcare person back. So they are privileged to have child care. But what this mom noticed was that when she was just there with the children on her own and then with the new baby even. She realized that having a scheduled for the day was a godsend. It was the key to making naps, work to her children being better able to cope with the challenges of the day and to do all the things that she needed to do. Within reason, I, mean everybody's noticing something that some of US noticed longtime ago, and that's that things aren't smooth when you have children and the more we expect them to be. The more difficult can be for us because our frustration tolerance is going to be lower and we're going to be disappointed when the day invariably falls apart and surprises, US and children don't do what we want them to do or expect them to do. But this parent found, she said in the old days when her nanny was there, her children seemed to take their naps and do the things they needed to do. But with her and her husband on the weekends, it would always be kind of a struggle and that's because they had a lot of outings plan and things they wanted to do, and they did not follow a routine. There's nothing wrong with that. Of course, but it just can make life harder when you need to work. Work at home and have those stretches of time to get things done. Or even if you are a stay home parent and you need to get things done, it is so helpful to be able to know that you will probably have this break coming up where your child is self directing their play and doesn't need you even when they're awake. So it not only works better for us that we have a rhythm for the things that we want to accomplish during a day but. Is So empowered I. have a post called empowering our babies with rituals and talks about even with infants or especially with infants that rhythm that we find with them and then stick to. This isn't some schedule that we impose on a child that we're deciding. It's based on their needs and the rhythm that supports them, but they like to do when they first wake up, which is maybe have something to eat or their baby nursing are bottle feeding. So this isn't something arbitrary. We impose into our lives as parents, but rather something that we sensitively develop in accordance with our child's rhythms. And then as soon as possible, we communicate this routine to our child beginning with babies. We say in the morning. Okay. Here's what we're going to do. After we change your diaper will go to your place space. For this mother that I had the phone consultation with she said that her son who was in kindergarten last year and it was online. She would have this time in the morning. First thing after breakfast where he would do his quote work I, don't know what it was exactly assignments given by the teacher. And even her younger son who I think was only a toddler, he would do something at that time that was more focused at a table was drying what he was doing, but they had that time that was quote schoolwork, and then they would play at home, and then they would have luncheon and naps and maybe have an outing at the park. I. Didn't really get into all those details with her, but she was so sold on this. It had changed her life so much and made her life so much easier. especially with a newborn baby, she felt that this was supporting her so much. She could see how her two sons were thriving with this schedule. So, this routine where our child knows, and then we communicate with them about what happens each day some people even like do a visual schedule where they draw pictures and they can show the child on a chart. Now, we're GonNa do this, and now we're going to do that. So that's probably the only kind of chart I like for children, and what this is is a story that we tell our child that they get to live out each day and feel confident about feel sure of even the parts of it that maybe. Maybe, they don't like as much the part where the to wash their hands before meals, and we all go do that together. They are able to feel more cooperative when they are empowered to know this is what's going to happen next this story that I've heard is going to repeat itself I. Know What's going to happen in my world. The world is so overwhelming to young children. They don't have much control over anything, but through this schedule this routine, they feel a sense of control that they are on top of it. And so where I would take this with parents working from home. First of a lot of parents rebel against routines. They do not like having schedules and I understand that I think. I'm that kind of person naturally. So I had to realize how important it was for my children and how important it was for me to know that I was going to most of the time. Get this nap time period where I could really focus and lose myself in something I had to be convinced of this and I, think this. Speaking to did as well. To. Realize that that is more important than me getting to be spontaneous and take the kids do whatever I wanna do with them each day, and we can still do that once in a while. In fact, giving our children that routine helps them to be more flexible when we break it once in a while it's kind of. Intuitive, and my mentor Magda Gerber used to speak about this that we might believe that if we take babies everywhere with us and don't have a schedule that they will be more adaptable, but she said actually, no, it's the opposite. It's the child that is secure in their routine as that little bit of control in their life. That is the child that can break the routine with more confidence.
