I wouldn't say mood boards. But that's not really the the right thing but like the kind of pull from the influenced how you want this story. It'd be influenced from shakespeare. How you want it to be influenced from nineteen twenty. Shanghai like to really kind of get sort of the visual aspects for yourself before you start writing some the scenes and some of the details yano absolutely i because so i've always been interested in the nineteen twenties because of how cool over an aesthetic it is and i feel like when i read books. I love being transported to the sitting itself. So when i wanted to write something like with a sitting like as vivid as the nineteen twenty hours. Like if like this writing. Doesn't make the rita actually st. What's going on in front of them like failed. So when i was writing i definitely wanted it to like be able to actually bring out like what was happening in the details of what was happening but without getting to quote up on it like i didn't wanna like boss someone with description but it had to like paint the scene so that it was like vividly cleared this one thousand twenty shanghai yukon. You imagine that this is somewhere else that you open the spokane meal i will. Maybe this could be somewhere else. Had to be very rooted to place and to time. So while. I wouldn't say that i work off of pictures or anything but i definitely like wanted my. I had a lot of references of lay. Oh so the the place. Look like the Since since i was in shanghai lake so much anyway like pop up one of the parts of the city from back then still kind of preserved soy always had an ideal of like what it looks like But then also like looking at the fashion of the time head styles the music of that I wanted to like really emphasize that this is its own. Little like aesthetic niche. I guess and because you know you've been writing kind of as a pastime for so long Has it become such a routine for you. That even with College life out whether the academic side of the social side you're still you're still able to find time to sort of commit to that rainer to that ever become difficult. I know you said freshman. Year was especially hard. But we're able to find a way to incorporate it as your college Time went on. You know definitely after freshman year was especially rough. I think because of the adjustment. And because i i'm not american to begin with that was also like the cultural adjustment as well So that was wrong..

Like blood feud idea. I had because So the nineteen. Twenty s in shanghai was kind of inbetween When the imperial dynasty fell and win the nationalist government came in reinstalled himself so there was a decade where it was just warlord rule in each sector things were so messy.

Best intros for cold calls

"Hey, this is Jason with possible prospecting I hope you're doing safe and great. have. You been during this covid nineteen thing terrible way to open up your cold calls. Now. I'm GonNA talk about intr- alliance and things that you can use here. But the reason why those lines are so bad is one you're talking about Cova D- thousand in Corona virus in your opening line you're automatically getting the call off to a negative start. You're talking about something that people probably aren't superstock about. But to it's really insincere. When you say I, hope you're doing safe in great. I'm assuming this person you're calling you don't know. So you actually hope that they are doing safe in great when you don't even know who this person is in. Lastly it's what everyone's saying right now. So the big thing with a cold call is you want to create a pattern interruption. You WanNa say something different at the beginning of that call that will grab their attention right you want them to focus on. What you're saying and really grabbed their attention that I ten seconds, right so your job is to be different. So I wanNA share just real quick a couple lines. There's five of them that a combination of our clients are using and people on our podcast of shared in I'm personally using all of these and we're coaching our clients to use these lines as well. So the first one is from cerebral over at Gong. Did an interview with and she's also been interviewed on Scott's podcast. She says two Freakin. You know Rockstar I don't know if I'm allowed to use profanity on this podcast I'm going to save rockstar. But. She's super awesome and here's what she says. So after she does the you know, hey, this is Jason Bay with full prospecting. These are lines that are gonNA come right after you introduce yourself and she hey I know it's kind of weird to be making calls when there's a pandemic going on but then she goes into in upfront contracts right? So she does talk about the pandemic but she Acknowledges that Hey, it might be kind of weird and that's a variation of a line that you can use. It's really effective like you might be kind of weird to be giving you a cold call right now it's a really really great when you're acknowledging the elephant in the room. The second one is someone that Jonathan may hand over a bomb bomb who I'm coaching key prefers this line. That's. Very very up front about the fact that it's a cold call and he uses a sandler style upfront contract and his sounds like this. Some cold calling right now, it should take me about thirty seconds to tell you why I called and about thirty seconds for you to tell me if you WANNA keep talking. Sound Fair. So it's got that upfront contract with some huge fan of but he says, Hey, I'm cold calling you right now in the response he gets to as really good. So a couple of these other ones are are ones that I don't even know I. Think I've heard of or just have figured out how to do myself but my favorite one to us is, Hey, this is Jason with boastful prospecting. Probably cut you at home in the middle of something. But the reason for my call and then go into the call. That's my favorite one. I know I probably caught you at home in the middle of something. So a great way to kind of acknowledge the situation that people are working from home without having to talk about corona or covert or any of that other BS number four. This is a really cool onto hey, Jason was blissful prospecting. I'm sure the last thing you're expecting right now is to get a cold call. But the reason for my call is this and then you can either go into an upfront contract are going to your pitch or whatever might be okay. There's another one that works really. Well in this last one is more of a getting straight to business. You're kind of approach so you could say something like Hey Jason with full prospecting. Calls probably expected saw get right to it. I always used this line when I can hear the other person like inpatients on the line from the other person's or I get a sense that they're just extremely busy and I can hear it in their tone of voice. Hey, I know this call is probably unexpected sell kit right to it. You're acknowledging the elephant in the room you're letting them know that this was not a call from someone that they know in your also letting them know that you're GonNa get right to

Should You Offer Chat Support in Your Business?

"Like I mentioned that the top of the episode chat support is a great solution. We've been doing chat support under Ninja for over four years. Now we offer twenty, four, seven life support, and it's one of the hallmarks of our company. It's one of the big reasons why our customers stay customers and the reason people choose us over our competitors but there was a lot of work that needed to be done before we were ready to offer chat support. There's some foundational work you need to do and things you need to consider before you make that switch. It's also important to understand that once you offer chat support. It's one of those things that you want to offer it. It's really hard for you not to offer it again. So once people get used to a certain level of support, you might start with email. Then you'll at chat support if things are not going right or you didn't set yourself up properly and then you remove chat support this disgruntled some customers and really can affect their experience and mega make him feel really took something away from them that they're used to maybe enjoyed. So there are a few things I want to highlight that will help you get prepared to launch chance support in your business the right way. First of all, why would you want to offer chat support in the first place? Why don't you just stick to email more and more every single day every single month every single year chat support is becoming the new phone support. Prefer to chat. Now, text than to get on a phone call it's often faster to solve a problem get questions answered through chat suppor- think about it most people don't make phone calls or take phone calls or get phone calls that often but they sent a lot of text messages and facebook messages and what's happened all that stuff. It's a way for you to go back and forth with your customer live and get them a win in that moment in the moment, they reach you the moment they visit your website allows them to make a decision quickly rather than the hit your website, and then they're like, oh, I, have a couple questions. Let me see if they have. An e mail or contact form and most people don't even go that far they're just leave the website and check out a competitor. But if you have chat support allows them to say hey, I got a quick question. Let me just ask right now there's somebody right there and that question could be very simple. It can be somebody overlooked it could be something that's on your website or on your your sales pages, and the answer that question could make them feel confident enough to make a purchase right then and there it's also a huge benefit a huge benefit for your customers that already paying you. They feel like you always have their back and you're just one message away. And flat out chat support is just fun. You can send him Ho- Jeez and Jeff's funny images, and you can really express your brand and your style through Chad. The email really doesn't do as well. A lot of our branding is done through chance support a lot of our customers become customers because we're like everything like your style on chat your team really made me feel comfortable and welcomed in a professional yet casual way. So what are some of the things that you need to consider before you say Yep, let me go ahead and go chat support. The first thing I want to say to you is a Lotta people think okay. What software do I need to chat with? You know there's a lot of chat software out there whether it's intercom. Or. Fresh desk or Zen desk or help scout there's so many out there. Right and all the offers are pretty much assume depends on your needs not gonNa really get into that right now that's the easy part. But what are the things you need to consider is your customer base where is your customer base? Do you serve only a national market the covers maybe A. Few time zones or your customers international around the world. If that's the case you need to make sure you're able to offer your chat support twenty, four seven throughout the day. So you can cover the entire globe that means having at least three people on chat or on your customer support team. Each of them have an eight hour shift. Now, some people they start with five. It is week of chat versus seven days a week, and that's a good way to get into the game. But if your customers are global, you need to consider the fact that you can't just offer chat certain hours of the day. Those hours could just be in the middle of the night for somebody else and it's just really not a benefit at all you also. Have to take a look at if you have the manpower, the staff to be able to handle the amount of chats are getting. Now if you're on email support right now, this is not a good measure. Why? Because email support takes a little bit effort for the customer to actually send an email they'll probably go through a few other hoops or maybe how the tutorials or Do, a little bit of Reading for trying to figure it out themselves before they email, and this is while I will start with mail because it lowers the number of support requests but also drastically lowers the number of presell emails or chats or you'll messages. So as soon as you offer chat on your website, it's Gong to invite more conversation. That's a good thing because you're. Getting in touch with their customers and you're making connections, but it's also something you need to consider because if you were getting, let's say a hundred emails a day in email support. That's no indication of how many messages are going to get in chat because that's really going to open up the floodgates because now it's easily accessible. People can easily chat with you and send a message. It's not always easy to predict, but the traffic to your website is really a good indicator forgetting getting over one hundred thousand visitors to your website. You're going to have a good amount of those people chatting with you asking questions out say ten percent is a good measure at least ten percent people are going to reach out and ask questions especially, if you prompt them to ask questions, which is really cool. You noon chant. Throwing the pricing you can ask, Hey, you got any questions about pricing or choosing the right plan for yourself chataway with us. If you think about that, if you have if you have one hundred, thousand visitors every month that means ten thousand people chat with you every month now you might think that's a law is a lot and it's better free to over estimate and be ready for the traffic.

2020 Fall Movie Preview

"Hi everybody I am Peter Travers and welcome to this special edition of Popcorn where creed you all the movies opening between Labor Day and New Year's Eve I know wait what aren't we in a pandemic Will really be moved this fall and theaters to show them in I mean the answer to both those questions is a huge. Yes. Sixty two percent of all US theaters are open now and there's going to be more to come covid permitting, of course, and those movies that can't make it to the multiplex will be available for rental or streaming in sickness and in health people, you can't keep a good movie down. So let's start with the blockbusters that are out there. Number one is tenant. Brain Teasing epoch from Dark Knight Director. Christopher. Nolan. That's geared to fire up the fall season and in theaters and with your mask and distancing in place you can strap in for this kind of Christopher Nolan throw ride and watch the spy master he's played by John David Washington give James Bond a run for his money you know you just have to. Get your head around the physics in this movie. Maybe don't know about how you can go forward and backwards in time at the same time I don't know either I was a little confused by that but you'll be glued to the visual miracles that are on screen here every cent of tenants two, hundred, million dollars production budget shows up onscreen Eisele popped. Jaw dropped pulses. Oh, pound all that good stuff movies and back baby. So what else do we have? We have Moulin which is out there right now and you'll check in Disney plus to watch this because it's not in theaters but you can rent it and you could see live action film of the Disney animated hit about a young woman who disguises. Herself as a man to replace her sick father in the Imperial Army the new moon is not musical and there's no comic relief from eating Murphy as the Voice of a fast talking dragon named Moo Shu. This is not that kind of movie. There's no whitewashing but using Western actors in the drawn from Chinese legend and as Rouland the astounding Lou ye. Leads in Asian cast that includes martial arts icon jet. Li is the emperor up and China's leading actress Gong Li as shape shifting witch who teaches on how to survive and prosper in a man's world. Look move on is not your typical princess. She's a warrior fighting for her place in the world prepare to be well. Next up wonder woman one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, the sequel to the two thousand seventeen smash that made a star of Gal. Gadot, remember her places the DC comics immortal wonder woman into the cold. War where she does battle with the media tycoon played by Pedro Pascal and the villainous Cheetah played by Kristen Wiig always to me an asset in any movie Chris. Pine also returns Steve Trevor The American. Pilot that one woman loves I know didn't he die the last time during World War? One people you gotta go with this this is Hollywood. So if we can borrow wonder woman's last sube truth for a moment, credibility isn't the issue here. It's the show stopping stunts engineered by returning director Petty Jenkins executed by Godot, and she's a formal Israeli military structure. So you know you're in for a really good time. Next up is black widow look wonder woman has competition already. You know we've been waiting since spring for Marvel to let its first solo black widow epic out of storage and into theaters. Now, the wait is over Scarlett. Johansson is back in action as Natasha Romanoff Aka black widow. She's the Russian assassin with no superpowers road just skills she's like the female Batman this Prequel looks back, Arjun story in it's a doozie forints pugh is there as Natasha, surrogate says sister and Rachel Vice is the leader of this black widow organization. It's not just one black widow you can become a black widow tells witness business. So Watch your back wonder woman next up candyman there's nothing like the Primo horror. Film to get us all back in the dark of a theater where we can scream bloody hearts out behind a mask of course, end with get outs Jordan peele writing the screenplay. This direct sequel to nineteen ninety two's cult fright fest stars Watchmen Emmy nominee Jadu Martine the second as a visual artist drawn back to those housing projects in Chicago's Cabrini-green where he was born now the whole place is gentrified beyond recognition but the green is still haunted by Candyman Tony Todd an urban legend who still kills anyone who summoned him by saying his name five times. Okay. Altogether now with me candyman candyman candyman candyman candyman, we did it. So I'm looking around here to see if some him up. Okay next up no time to die look no red blooded movie Fan is GonNa Think of missing Daniel. Craig's fifth and final outing James Bond you know for my money Craig and Sean Connery are in dead heat for the best bond ever. This one directed by Kerry from Gonzaga who did true detective from Script Co written get this by sleeping bags phoebe Wall Rich Daniel Craig asks for her because he really wants a little feminist touch to this. This is the. Twenty fifth, all seven Cape and you know this is a record and we're GONNA lose Daniel Craig. But in the movie James Bond's been retired for five years and he gets called back in. You know that's what happens to everybody from the Godfather on. You know Bohemian Rhapsody oscar-winner. Rami ballot plays the facially scarred villain named SAFM and he's described the director as more dangerous than anyone bond has ever encounter. Man How about you?

Thank you for for having me. Thank you for having me youthful days created. Soviet. Usually starter show with an inspirational court. So is there a court that's sort of on your mind right now and how do you apply it in your day to day life? I what I find especially lately, very very inspiring is is the quotes that you cannot drive darkness out of the world's by fighting darkness but by my shining light and I think especially. It's always been like that but I think especially now it's very easy to become a little bit negative feeling. You have to resist things in in life and fight against the things were system or a disease. It's I think most importantly for human beings as an individual what you can do an repower that you have is to start to really Stein, the light of awareness consciousness lifeguard however wants to call it within so that you can start to become a positive five in your surroundings for your family for for for this whole world to add something who live instead of just complaining and fighting this. Become a shining spirit because that's in essence what we are our full of for start that you shared we can't fight darkness darkness. We have to use a different strategy over here. Because otherwise, it's going to be very stressful anxiety driving and mark useful and so are we need to do alluded to is use these different practices these techniques, these ways of thinking that will allow you to eliminate the light that has already within you or shine it in the right areas so that I. May Be facilitated the healing of people around you as well as collectively in the word where is I think a good place to begin with but let's start from the beginning Mikhail. How did it all begin for you? Where did you grow up as a child I grew up in the Netherlands and I was raised in a Christian family and I got a lot of beautiful values in my in my life in my raising as the upbringing and Yeah. especially a lot of what what the? The teachings of Jesus that you have to be loving and kind forgiving and all these qualities I. Always found very inspiring. Later on I win a little bit on my own path the not. Very. Much Christianity. But still I find very beautiful. Everything's that Jesus said everything spot on but then I went on my own path and I got more. I found it interesting. How without theory? How without reading certain stories or a theory about what God is or what life is without theory to experience directly the truth the essence of this reality because a story, it's GonNa help or an idea but it's it's with the mind if you know what I mean but experiencing it a feeling is, is above the mind you do it with with the heart if you know what it means. So then I got more in to meditation into instill nece experiencing life experiencing God's there's Universe is reality this creation and finding that reality? Is Different experience for everybody. But in essence, it can only be experienced and not really be told

Businesses Complain Generous Jobless Benefits Make It Hard To Find Workers

"Tens of millions of people are out of work because of the corona virus but if they apply for unemployment they get six hundred dollars a week which is more than some were making in their previous jobs. That was a deliberate effort. By Congress to cushion the economic fallout from the pandemic but now those benefits are getting a second. Look here's NPR chief. Economics correspondent Scott horsely preschool teacher. Lady Morris has been out of work for more than two months but the Portland Oregon Childcare Center. Where she worked is thinking about reopening. Moore's is dreading it as much as she loves the infants and toddlers. She used to care for. They always have naughty faces. It's just one cold effort and other. That's just the name of the game in daycare and it feels just like an epicenter for spreading disease and it feels really scary to go back to that preschool. Teachers don't make a lot of money. Thanks the extra six hundred dollars a weekend. Unemployment benefits the federal government offering during the pandemic. Moore's is actually making more now than she did on the job. She hate to give that up if she and her fellow preschool. Teachers are called back to work. It's terrible to say but we're all doing better now. It's hard to think about going back to work in this pandemic and getting paid less than we are right now. Where we're safe at home and minute quaranteed. Atoms of Gravel Switch Kentucky is in no hurry to go back to work either. The cracker barrel restaurant where he worked has just started offering limited indoor dining again after weeks of takeout. Only service. Adams's worried though. Too many people are still getting sick. I don't feel like it's over yet. I would wait to see as things we open. If the case load increases again for now Adams has decided to stay home mostly out of concern for the four elderly relatives. He lives with but the extra six hundred dollars a week and unemployment. He's receiving did factor into his decision. I would say it has to some extent it still really needs to be more about my family members but it's been very generous having the cares act. Some business owners complained that generous unemployment benefits are making it harder for them to find workers. Rachel Davis runs a consignment shop in Warren's bird Missouri since reopening this month she's been buying hand sanitizer by the gallant disinfectant. Is My new fragrance. She jokes she's living traffic in the store to three customers at a time and everyone who comes in must wear a mask customers have thanked us for that and my sales are actually up since we reopened. Davis also gave her part time employees. A modest raise but the ten to eleven dollars an hour. They make is far less than they work. Electing on unemployment one of her four workers has not come back. I know I shouldn't take it personally. That she's doing what she feels is in her best interest but as an employer actually. Kinda hurt economist at the University of Chicago estimate. More than two-thirds of the workers unemployment are making more in jobless benefits than they did at work in some two to three times as much. That's a stark reminder of just how low the pay is in many hard hit industries when millions of low wage workers were suddenly forced to stop working to protect public health economist. Joseph Vavra says there were good reasons for the federal government to step in with some relief. Getting people money today so that you can buy groceries and NOCCO hungry getting people money so they can pay their rent. The basic necessities of life kind of makes sense still bobber and his colleague. Peter Gong say the flat six hundred dollars a week. Benefit does create questions of fairness especially when other low income workers are still on the job doing essential. Work if you're a janitor and you work at a hospital you're facing increased risk at your job and likely have not received a pay raise but if you're janitor and you worked at a school that's shut down and you actually get fifty percent raise from claiming unemployment benefits likewise retail workers on furlough or collecting forty two percent more on average from unemployment than the grocery workers who are still busy stocking shelves. The six hundred dollar week benefits are set to expire at the end of July and Congress has to decide whether to extend them good on. Bava argue with double digit unemployment. Maintaining some kind of increased benefits will be vital but they suggest those benefits could be more closely to workers old paychecks so as not to discourage a return to work so new chartier and her husband opted not to go back to their old jobs with a Wisconsin. Furniture store customers. There aren't required to wear masks then short worries about infecting her mother-in-law. We're lucky and we can decide to stay home. And I'm grateful for that and I know so. Many people can't make that decision and I. It's really hard but we don't have feel like it's safe to go out short to your nose turning down. Her old job may cost her unemployment benefits and she started look for new jobs. Maybe one she can do from home or while. Otherwise avoiding risk her number one question for would be employers. What are you doing to protect your workers?

"gong" Discussed on Sales Success Stories

"It's like everybody's just like helping each other out so it's very very like we're all in this together. We're GONNA win as a team and that was important. It was important to have the right manager and then it was important to have a company that took how they enable their. Str's really seriously because there is a problem within startup culture that's like str's young. They're green their dime. A dozen like turnovers usually typically high in a lot of VESTI ARE WORKS AND COMPANIES. Just are like. That's fine because we'll just get someone else to fill the seat but that's like a broken system and you WANNA company that knows the SDR's are incredibly valuable and that the hardest part right now sales basically everybody. Who's not because I don't know anything but like when I talked to people who've been in sales for a long time like I was just talking to our new. Vp OF SALES OPS Benun. He was saying yet. Top of the funnel is the hardest. Part is so much noise so having someone who can cut through it is so important and that takes a lot of training and a lot of enablement to get someone that skill set so you have to have a company that takes that really seriously and gone does so yeah I mean I think those three factors were super important for me. Yeah so I was talking about this. I don't know a month or two ago about and I think I did this. The daily sales tip on it just in terms of I think the SDR role in sort of that traditional model that you described in the beginning right where it's super high turnover. I'm like it's a career trap. You're never going to get the experience you need. You're never going to be able to move beyond this unless you find an organization like Gong that is treating this as hey. This is a super important developmental opportunity like we need to grow people and help them be successful in this role and and have a place for them to go right so they can move into an eight-year-old or I also believe that we can actually professionalize the S. Yaro I've seventies really great at being an SDR. Why don't we just pay them like an e e because they're probably generating three or four times as many meetings as somebody that's new and fresh. That would churn in a typical organization. Yeah exactly and I just think like it's better for business to invest up front in a new SDR because that s tr is going to become your next CSM your next e your next whatever and that ends up being incredibly economical right. We spent so much money trying to get great people in seat to be a commercial av or commercial. Csm or you know. Have an entry level marketing role. You know if you just took that money and you spent it on developing an SDR. You have someone that you don't have to ramp. You have someone who's invested in the company to me it so much. Smarter to get your. Sdr's really good at being SDR because you also developed so much grit you develop massive business acumen. You could be a resource to accompany in a myriad of areas but people just have to invest in them. Yeah so we've been dropping like acronyms like crazy so I'm going to do like real quick definition on stuff just in case so. Icp is an ideal customer client profile a our annual recurring revenue SDR sales development rep at account executive CSM Customer Success Manager. Client Success Manager. I think I got them all. Yeah so Sarah I wanNA come back cause you already started to outline this but I wanNA just go. One layer deeper if somebody is either thinking about their first. Sdr Job or they just interested in sales. Maybe they're in an SDR job but they know like I'm never gonNA develop and grow here like this is not working but I still want to do this. Let's go crazy with the questions. And just that due diligence process like. What are the things they should be looking for one of the questions? They should be asking to find that right opportunity. That's really gonNA give them an opportunity to develop and grow and bill just an amazing foundation for themselves so that they can become that enterprise account executive. That's that's making multiple six figures. Maybe even seven figures. Yeah I mean so I think one of the first things if I was just starting out as an SDR. I'd want to know who I was selling to. I think one of the things that my last company was that actually really didn't identify with our buyer and it was kind of hard to imagine myself my imagination my empathy skills to get in their head and I love talking to sales people so getting on the phone with a VP of sales or CRO. And then I always ask them at the end of my cold calls like hey what should I have done differently? How can I make this better? And it's like immediate coaching. No love it. It's amazing. It's great I I like the conversation. I like that type of person. I like the way sales people think so I think like first off. The bad is like do you want to sell two. Because Tech sales you could be selling to a CFO you'd be selling to cro you could be selling to CTO CIO. You'd be selling to a tear down from that like who do you like to talk to an SDR? You don't need to necessarily know the answer to that question because you might grow into liking what you're selling but you do you want to be involved in a far more technical sale or do you want something a little less like that to be talking to. Cmo's or who do you WANNA talk to? I think is important. I think like another important questions when you get into. That interview is just like you need to be asking questions about like. So what's turnover like you know how many str's have actually quit in the past year? How many yards have been promoted? What was their promotion path? Like how long has your ramp how many. Sdr's have hit that ramp. How many str's are currently hitting quota like what's your average quota attainment a month. How are you comping people you know? What kind of accelerators do you have in place? Just questions like that. Because you're interviewing them as much as they're interviewing you and like until corona virus gets super bad and the economy takes a downturn is still an employee's market so you can say no if they don't answer the question the way you want them to. I also think like. Do you want like questions to starting out. Str's is like if the company is one hundred people you're going to be one of the first SDR's which means there's going to be a lot of experimentation failure and processes aren't going to be built out as much. Are you comfortable with that? That's personal question. You have to answer for yourself versus. If you're working at a larger company they might have processes in place that might require you to be in for a certain number of months which might limit or make being an St are longer before promotion becomes an actual feasible opportunity for you to be asking questions or around those things. And then I think what am I missing here a Kinda Kinda tangent now? No I think you're getting a lot of it and I think as you were talking about you know if you're going to be the first one enroll right if you're at that sort of scale of organization. I think really just understanding their expectations rate. If they don't have the experience of this is how many people are achieving ramp bender at quota and those types of things just understanding. How quickly are you expecting me to be productive and Kinda calling out the fact that you realize you've never done this before right? They just need a lot of stuff. I'm going to have to figure out and also the things you were talking about earlier in terms of just vetting. The leadership and the management right like the culture of an organization is always top down. This applies both positively or negatively but the negative. Way I think about this as a fish stinks from the head down so if something is Squirrelly oftentimes that emanates from the C. Suite. So what's the personality of the CEO? What is their track record? And then your immediate manager I mean Serta your point. I think you're a perfect testament of this. I don't know that I've interviewed anybody on this show. Ever that is wildly successful despite their manager. It's typically because of their manager right. They've got a great partner. That is helping them win. That is a great coach. That is developing them and is in this with them right. So I think you've really gotta dig in and just figure out. Is this somebody that is going to help me get better and is going to coach me and develop me or is this just somebody having a fight with my life going to be miserable exactly and I think to that point? It's like is your manager incentivized to move you forward in your career. I think sometimes what happens is an SDR manager your top performer. And if they lose you they're going to lose a big chunk of their number right. So what is currently in place at the company right now to make sure that person is invested in you developing your skill set so much that you're not only a top producer for them but also so that they can confidently recommend you into whatever role you want in the timeline. That you both agree is fair. Yeah I think cheaper important. Yeah good stuff awesome. I'm I'm so glad we talked about that. I mean I. It's something that I keep coming back to because very few people do it. Well right what you said. That was super important. Is your interviewing them. Also like this is not a one way street. You're just not trying to sell yourself and get the job you've got to figure out is even the right job for me. You're about to invest a huge percentage of your waking hours. You GotTa make sure that this is right for you so you know taking that responsibility and asking these questions and just doing the work and don't just ask them of one person right. You've really got to kind of triangulate these details. I'm always asking. Let me talk to somebody that just finished their ramp. I WanNa understand what that new person experiences like from somebody who just went through it not somebody that went through five years ago but that went through it now and let me talk to somebody. That's at the top of their game. That's doing really well. What does that look like in just getting those different perspectives to understand? Not just what the hiring manager might be telling you because they might be desperate and working really hard to put a button. The they'll tell you anything that's bad too. Yeah you always have to do that back. Investigative detective work. It is so important and also a sign that you're a good SDR because that's literally what str's do all the time we're constantly being detective so it's good practice exactly exactly and I tell people I met the number one piece of advice that I have is. If you're looking for a new sales job that is a sales job so act like it right. Like build a great pipeline. You know have a lot of people that you're interviewing with those interviews. It's like a discovery process. Run it like a discovery process. Make sure you're following up. Well you run it like a deal. You've got to close process okay. Explain what are the steps in your process before you hire somebody understand all of those and who's involved in managed the freaking process? It's a sales job. Yes exactly in that same realm. I've been thinking about this a lot lately One of my coworkers. Adamo chart said it to me and he so rights like when you're an SDR and you're trying to get promoted into the next position especially if it's a closing role think of it the way you would deal cycle run those conversations like a deal cycle figure out who your actual buyer is versus. Who Your champion is and who you need to be talking to you and communicating with getting on the same page as you work your way through through the organization at through the company. That's been something I have been actively learning as I'm gearing up to become an E. S. Like how are we going to get this done? And how are we going to get it done today? Guys go there you go. What is your favorite sales story? Talk about an experience that you had. Maybe it was a super hard to get meeting. It's a meeting that you're super proud of or maybe you just fell on your face and you learn something from that process. Yeah so one of the things that I think is challenging as an. Sdr is knowing what professional persistence. Actually is I think that what happens often is someone tells us no and so we think no isn't no always instead of a not yet or not now so every time. I hear no I think no for now if I believe the no is actually no so my first thought. When someone rejects. Be as well. They haven't heard the pitch they don't actually know why I'm talking to them. That's on me my dad so I just need to take a new approach. Try to get an opportunity to educate them a little bit because I know that if they hear my pitch. They're going to be more intrigued. And then if they tell me no then maybe it's a no for now and then it's like okay so like. When is my opportunity going to happen? So like there's a company that. I was hunting and happened pretty recently but I read their quarterly earnings call for an Aq- four and they just launched new product. They've been talking about how they want their sales team to be performing product that they launched. They felt like they really well. But the CEO was talking about how he's got these really big expectations for it and it hasn't fully reached the expectations that he set out because he literally says Multiple Times throughout the quarterly earnings call. I've got big expectations. A out of this product supposed to differentiate them it's company in the Security Space Twenty twenty s big year for security special because of the elections but a lot of customers are consolidating vendors. So if you're so under security this great time. Great Time did so sale software to them. So there's this guy I know he's my guy and I sent him an email and I know he's reading it. Because outreach is telling me he's read it he keeps reading. It keeps opening my emails. I call him. I get his buddy because he left his cell phone and his buddies car. He's like yeah. What do you want and I was so thrown off that I fell on my face and just missed an opportunity to pitch to his friend. Who has a cell phone so I.

Licence plates, education fights and other dispatches from Doug Ford's Ontario

"This is one of those bizarre little government. Screw that probably happened on some level to every single government anywhere on the political spectrum is an embarrassing sure. But it's also not a big problem is screwed something up you've vixen. You apologize annual move on. It's the kind of screw up that only sticks around because it says something about the bigger picture and it says something when you refuse to acknowledge that and you won't answer questions as you guys. The Media WanNa stick in this little downtown Toronto bumble and start worrying about little things in this respect from them in my opinion first nations right today worse. So welcome to year. Two of Doug Ford's Ontario where alongside the big issues like teacher strikes autism funding and pandemic preparation. We also have license plates. But you can't read and look the plates will be fixed. It'll be fine but this could have been a one day story and instead it's a three week story. Because the first time the issue was raised we got us. We have worked with our key. Stakeholders and our plates are readable. And that right there is how a small story becomes a big one. And that's why it's worth taking a look at how it happened. In a look at the bigger picture and Ontario rating and discussing the government. It's trying to balance a of spinning plates. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big store. Cynthia Mulligan is the Queen's Park reporter at City News in frequent guests. During at least this administration I Cynthia Jordan. Why don't you tell me as we sit here today? What is the Ontario government dealing with? Like what issues are kind of swirling around them. Well license plates are a huge one. I mean license plates have just turned into a boondoggle fiasco nightmare for this government and it it should have been such a benign thing you know. The old license plates were peeling. The contract was up and they wanted to sort of put their mark on the province so for people outside of Ontario who Like to enjoy a laugh at Toronto's and Ontario's expense told me about the license plates like start from the beginning. Why does Ontario have new license plates? And what are they well early on in his tenure doug four decided he was going to rebrand. Ontario in his vision license plates. Were one of the main things. And he redid the slogan. That sounded like you know a Doug Ford campaign slogan and he did them in colors that are known to be more conservative blue colors and they were instantly dubbed Vanity plates by the end EP and partisan plates and they were released early February and it instantly turned into a gong. Show because a sergeant from Kingston a police officer took a photo of a license plate and said Oh my God. Didn't anybody research these plates. Put IT OUT ON. Twitter went viral. Because you couldn't read them when the light is Sean on them in the dark and it became a joke but it also became a how not to handle a crisis lesson for government. Explain what happened in the days following because again government screw up right Lebanon's highland and this could have been dealt with and done in a day. Maybe two days on the news cycle except the way they handled it. It then became a much bigger story so Lisa Thompson. Who was the former Education Minister? And you know I hate to say it she. She's she's really struggled in front of the media particularly in scrums she was the one who infamously said. Let's raise class sizes because it will make kids more resilient and you know would fall apart in scrums under the intensity and listen. Scrums are not easy to Queens Burke. They're really not so my hat's off to anybody who can manage an intense scrum. She has not mastered that skill so she stands up in the legislature. Somebody brings it up the MVP brings it up first day back and it's don't forget it's the first day back after the Christmas break and instead of coming back and I think everybody was expecting you know five weeks off six weeks off. They're coming back. It's going to be nice and calm. And he's talked to you in in late. Twenty nineteen about the new calm and friendly Pc government yes. They were trying to rebrand themselves. They have a new chief of staff after Dean French left under that scandal the patronage scandal and they were really trying to rebrand themselves and you would see. Doug Ford and even when he got questions at the time Before Christmas he was very calm and he handle them very well and he didn't Bristle and he didn't get angry and I think that they were just expecting you. Know SORT OF WE'RE GONNA start up this new session and we're going to carry on with that tone and Kabu license plates blow up in their face. Lisa Thomson gets up. The minister in charge gets up and denies. There's a problem when there's so clearly is a problem and basically says we've done a ton of research no problem and then it gets worse because then she does a scrum with the media calls says that they had to replace the old liberal license plates. The previous license plates were created some forty years ago under conservative. Premier Bill Davis so it just it just got worse and worse and worse and they wouldn't acknowledge there was a problem that then became a much bigger story than it had to finally the next day or so. They're like yeah. Ok well we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA look into this and they were very begrudging about it but it created a bigger problem than what what they should have had. And what really is the problem with these license plates. I mean in the grand scheme of things. It's yes it's a mess up. It's a big flood whether it's three. M's fault or the government's fault will never know because now there's a nondisclosure agreement but what it does is add to the pile of mistakes and backtracks at this government has had to do and it's it's becoming ingrained in the public consciousness because every time they look at a license plate they're Gonna. Think. Oh Yeah. Those are the license. Plates of the government messed up on top of the Autism. File on top of the gas pump stickers. That wouldn't stick on top of like I could go on and on and on what's happening at Queens Park right now just in terms of scandal or issue after issue and what's it like down there because it it seems like it's a bit chaotic from the outside so I had somebody from inside the government high up in the government. Come to my office recently. And they said how do you think we're doing and I said I think you're trying really hard to reset the channel and be different than your first eighteen months in office and I think your past mistakes. Keep coming to bite you. And she looked at me and went That's what's going on. How is Doug Ford navigating? All this this week he gave his first press conference in a while. Judy address it well. He was doing an announcement about a road to the ring of fire that He he championed as a historic agreement. In it's going to bring prosperity to first nations in northern Ontario. I mean it's really a a very preliminary announcement in it's basically an announcement that we're going to try and do this it. Put them in front of people. It also put them in a positive place in terms of indigenous affairs which you know we've been grappling with as a as a nation the last weeks so he wanted this positive announcement. The problem was the whole thing was a disaster from the get-go I mean it's at the Metro. Toronto Convention Center in the bowels like several floors down at a trade convention. It's packed and where they've set up this announcement they don't have enough room and the audio is terrible and the cameras are on a riser looking down at the premier and two chiefs and there's a ton of people from the public who WanNa Watch and they can't because they can't see the media can't see and the audios terrible and nobody can hear a darn thing. It was terrible optic to begin with. I think in watching him because he came when he arrived he was. He seemed in a really good mood. He was smiling. I think from his vantage point. He could see how things were going wrong. I mean one chief was standing at the microphone talking. You couldn't hear a word. He was saying and that had to have been frustrating for him so I think when the questions started and the first couple weren't even about his announcement about about something entirely different which is not unusual when we haven't seen him for five weeks so he has a lot on his plate and he wanted to change the channel with this historic announcement as he

Top 10 Things If Your Kids are Under 10

"GONNA do the next couple of podcasts. We're going to kind of Do a little top ten And so so kind of walk us through. What's his first one this first podcast? We're going to do what we can talk about. So Do's and don'ts for parents ages one to ten or thankful to some of our listeners. Out there that have really been plugging in things that they wanna hear about a little bit more focus on Dad's a little bit more focused on legacy and data and so we're going to hit you. swear smack in the forehead on a couple of these and probably in the meantime hit ourselves with them as well so number one is. Don't be quick to reprimand or punish a child from minor. Grievances do have patients intolerance forgive as God has forgiven us. Show that love and model it. Okay so one so a number one. We're talking about this don't be. Don't be quick to reprimand or punish a child from minor grievances. Now we're not talking about just giving your child free licensed to do whatever they want right. That's not what we're saying here. No yeah definitely. Want to be hands on parenting. You know as we've talked about before in previous podcasts. Not like helicopter not micromanaging. But you know it's gotta be acquainted to the Child's development you give a really good roadmap to that Lance On our page and The the roadmap for ages kids throughout all the way up to adulthood so follow that. But what we're saying here. Is You know as they have development stages of development on obviously the older they get the proverbial Lease gets looser. But you gotTA protect a child. That's warriors of old not walking out on the street and get hit by a car because mom and Dad said sure. Do whatever you WANNA do. You have to use a sermon and some wisdom in the process of what? We're talking locker odd speaking for you Dante but for me. I know this was A lot of times not flying off the handle In in the moment when maybe the child did something or there is I heard. Hey something happened at school or whatever like that. It was like okay. Let's give the child the benefit of the doubt. Let's let's hear their side of the story and and just yet again that slow to speak slow to anger Bef- before understanding really. What's going on and I know there's been times in my life where I was. I was ready to explode on a child and then it turns out you know what the child did was actually admirable or they were in the right. They were just defending a friend or defending their what they believed in. And then it's like okay. Hey that that makes sense to me I you know. Maybe I'm really glad I didn't. I listened I and didn't let my mouth you know or or You know fly off the handle or something like that so I can definitely see how this would be applicable in that. So let me. I'll jump in our hit number two here Dante. So Number two don't don't show limited emotion In by that we mean don't don't hold back affection or don't You know base our affection or that emotion based based on on a child's Efforts or or something that we may approve of Or a child's behavior support so going back to number one if the child is misbehaving or something like that that doesn't mean we withhold love and affection from our child is way of punishment so we forbid if God was with us like that and it was conditional love because God every every day. Okay not that you woke up and now I'm just GonNa you know that was the case. So this what we're talking. We're really this again. We talked about this. We hammered on this with marriage to But this is that unconditional. Love is saying that even though if the child disappoints us or or or their grades are down or whatever. It doesn't mean we stop showing them love and affection. We make that very clear you know and I I made A. I made it clear with my kids when we were disciplined him. The say listen I love you? You know I but but I have to discipline you. There's consequences for what you did But I do love you and then has nothing to do with. It doesn't change my love for you by having to do discipline you or ground you or whatever may be But I think that's what it is just letting the child know. Our love is in contingent upon their behavior. Their grades or some sort of effort based a metric does that does that make sense. Don't yeah yeah that's right. I mean you don't want your kids to grow up checking boxes because you know all of a sudden when they're eighteen nineteen and they do that. I mean one. You're going to impact the relationships they have and to. You know they're gonNA probably reject that way of living because they're gonna find you know especially if we're modeling them to biblical application that that that form of love or that conditional love does not jive or lineup scripture. So likely they would probably reject that way of life. You know another thing is something. My wife sees a lot with her Doing doing behavioral health and Counseling. With kids is kids will learn that. Okay if I'm acting up or they learned to get attention and if you're only giving them attention when they do something wrong or or you're overreacting. When they're doing something wrong. Kids learn that and it almost reinforces were Bad behavior were kids will then start saying well at least. I'm getting some reaction from dad when I do something wrong. So it can sometimes have the opposite effect where if were withholding love and affection It pushes a kid to another extreme of doing anything to get our attention or our lover approval And so can have detrimental consequences in that got daughters and wetlands. I want that to be like a loud gong in your ears. And just let it just permeate through your brain to like you have almost brain damage because the idea is like if if that's the way that you're going to be with your daughter Newsflash she's GonNa find that acceptance anywhere she can get it as Lynn likelihood be in relationships that she has no business being in. But because you know we're prideful were angry or we are. I am man. Hear Me Warren. We we show a different kind of love than what God calls us to. Do you know they're going to be doing these things? He's very things that we're trying to protect them from. And you need like raise your hand and say Lord that one's me because I did make my love with my child. Unconditional as as daddy issues as daddy issues. Everybody everybody knows somebody. That's got daddy issues so guys don't fall into that trap. Yeah absolutely what? What have we got next number three? Don't threaten a child if you have rules in your house you know whether it be safety or based on you know what our house rules for. The child be consistent with them based on fact not on emotion so in the case of one to ten year old. If you're telling them not to play with electricity unplugging the TV or they're doing something dangerous not only. Can they shock or electrocute themselves? But you tell them that they're gonNA LOSE TV OR THEY'RE GONNA lose the media or the IPAD as a result of that be consistent with that. Don't all of a sudden Rian reinvent the rules that you set forth in your house and I'm just using that as an example so I got a good example? You know So me you know not being the British child. I learned that the hard way. Because do you know you know at one? Ten light socket looks exactly like the place. We put your car Qian. If you WANNA drive a car so six year old lance decided. I'M GONNA put a key in the light socket and see what happens and Let me let me just say that was shocking day for me. So did you ever make that mistake again? They'll know strangely I learned in. I've never thought about that again. And right there what. Lancia said GUYS. I want you to hear this too and gals that are listening. You know sometimes like yeah were horrified or we don't want the child to have any more danger pain or hurt but instead of coming down on even more sometimes you have to assess you know if you're not sure the wisdom of the discernment the Situation Prey on it. Talk to your spouse before you put potentially overreact. And sometimes the mistake in itself is enough. You know quences. Yeah exactly I remember like one of our little kids you know was at a school and was playing with scissors just learning how to use them and accidentally was playing with another kid and cut some. Harrer you know and it was parents. Were fine everything. I'll say that nobody blew a gasket but just bringing that up with that that child not to be named You know is horrific enough and they were broken and they were. You know they're never gonNa make that mistake again with scissors you know. And that's the thing is like I could have been overbearing. Could have been like. That's it just realizing that. No lesson learned. Now what you know shape model you know. Give them guidance and all that but let the idea is not to threaten them or to make their life. You know to a point where they can't function because they're so worried about how mom or DAD's coming down on the counter to that is do develop boundaries and conditions for a child to navigate life through and so that means you know boundaries for your child relative and meaningful to the ages at their at you know one they got to have the cognitive ability to understand what those boundaries are. You know obviously a little kid. You want to protect them from burning themselves from taking a a pot of hot water over stove and knocking down on themselves. There are certain things that immediately they have to know pain so a spank to the hand or to that but you know to let them know that this is sharp pain versus you know something. That is just ridiculously over borders apparent. Just because either were prideful. Were selfish retired. Were angry you know if we give them if we're more of a guide in truth and give them boundaries and give them conditions for them to navigate. This goes to what Lance is put on the Road Map. This develops character. This develops integrity. This imbalance develops honesty and while these things so important you know to this child. Will that all relegates back to know why these boundaries why these conditions are so important especially in the formative years of these kids ages one through them. Yeah no I think I talked about this a preview podcast but we did with our kids when they were about five six years old. We actually sat down and made out this list of rules with the kids and it was real simple stuff like you know. Don't don't lie cheat or steal and then we kind of added some like fruit of the spirit of glacier five twenty five stuff in there and From there then that that was the rules and we actually typed it up and it was on the wall. I framed it. And that's what the kids knew. That was the baseline and it was like okay. If you break one of these rules you knew that there was going to be consequences. And it was pretty clear it was pretty clear cut And and there was never any questions about it at that point and if it was ever any questions we could say. Hey what what were the rules on the wall that you you helped me develop these rules. You broke the rules on now. There's the consequences so I didn't ever have to overreact or anything like that. Not Not saying that. I didn't 'cause there were times. I overreacted but I always tried to say. I didn't have to threaten the child that say okay. Hey you knew the rules. There's the rules right on the wall. you broke the rule so now here's the consequences. I think it just makes it a lot. Easier for US So long when we talked about these rules I'm GONNA get into number four here and Number four is don't overly protect your kids from failure and so what I mean by this and we talked about this in our podcast and overprotective parenting. But YOU WANNA WE WANNA encourage them to keep trying and always keep learning but they're gonNA fail and when they fail. We don't always run in and try to save them from the consequences of failure or Rescued them and make sure they never experienced failure in their life because we want them to experience failure in some of these smaller areas. Because that's how they're GONNA learn Resilience and that's all you're GONNA learn to

"Followers and only a tiny tiny fraction come from the paid advertising that's number one and I'll I'll say something else on that in just a minute. The second thing is we found. That, even campaigns that we did to try and get new followers, which might make sense if you're trying to grow your Lincoln following like we are we found that even campaigns to get new followers. Ninety five percent of new followers came from people who were organically reading our stuff and we approached them either on Lincoln or email but only like less than five percent came from paid campaigns that we spend a lot of money on to get new followers are our conclusion is that people don't want to be sold to whether content or product they wanna buy something that's interesting and useful to them. So if you produce enough interesting content and get it in front of their faces, they will follow you if one of your friends liked a long article or post and you. See that in your feet and you're like this is actually interesting to me. Lincoln shows you that big follow Gong to see more of these posts button and you can follow them. That is the way to get to them. It's not by shoving your ads in their faces because if they haven't been falling until now, they're not very likely to follow you because you shoved in their face and I know other networks like facebook are far more efficient at helping you buy new followers. Lincoln is not a good place at least it hasn't been frost to do that. Interesting. So So point talk about organic basically means that you're posting things to your Lincoln page or through. Like Lincoln page doesn't have a crazy amount of free speech and I think followers Lincoln is quite hard. Correct. So I this is something we've done a lot of research on and here just a few of the insights that we've we've come to. One is that we are performing a delicate balancing act between using the personal linked in profiles of some of our internal thought leaders or influencers that could be Chris from my team profile, my CEO's profile just to name a few. And the.

"The only reason I've I've had a few successes under my belt is because I've had like ten times as many failures and That's absolutely the honest truth. I've tried paid advertising on like ten different channels. I failed miserably almost each and every one of them. I've done events that I shouldn't have I've done so many things that just don't work but because both my CEO and I create this environment that encourages our team members to experiment with the understanding that it's the only way for marketing team to move quickly by. quickly, failing quickly understanding what doesn't work, kill it and they use the money for your next experiment until you find something that works and then you scale that for as long as it works. But you know that that's GonNa Start working like six to twelve months anyway. So you'd better start working on your next experiments as well. That's really the process of finding our channels of finding our content of finding everything works in marketing but now to go back to your question, Roy. I would say that the three most successful. That Gong has right now. Are One Organic Lincoln and I'm happy to dive into that a little bit of needed to. Email campaigns and three speaking opportunities at industry conferences. Those are the three channels where we get our story out and we see the most conversions from. Organic. Organic Lincoln I. Think I know what? You mean. But instead of guessing. actually. Sure. So first of all talk about why linked. And then why organic so why Lincoln for Gong Again this is something very specific if I were selling to medical professionals or even it professionals, I don't think Lincoln would be our channel Luckily, we are selling to sales professionals and it turns out that says, professionals actually live on in In case you're not sending sales professionals and maybe you don't know but says, professionals live on link because that's where they're looking for their next. Customer for their next employee and for their next job and just a network and and read content by people like them for them and so sales people. Sales leaders literally live on Lincoln all day long Hey I'm not in sales, but just working for Gong Lincoln has become my number one preferred social channels. So one, I spend most time on you know as lying in bed. Looking the APPS it used to be facebook I. Now find myself spending even more time on Lincoln. It's really where where my network is where where I pick up interesting ideas for content and events and see what other companies are doing and it's well audience lives. So that's why Lincoln. Why Organic? So here's the thing we've we've been doing. Quite, a lot of paid advertising over the last three years experimenting with many different motions and target target Sorry audience targeting, and different types of content everything from the lightweight content marketing to the heavier commitment of come ask for a demo and we found something very clear.

"That is solving a real life problem for them and we immediately recognized that these insights from our own customer conversations could it light on these age old problems of what really works and doesn't work in sales? And by just sharing these stories with our prospects, we could quickly position Gong as an authority on sales, and from there the road to getting them to request a demo and actually using Gong is is much easier in short, and so we literally figure that out on day. One of the rest of my day for wondering was spent that day on quickly downloading an email automation system quickly downloading and installing a landing page builder billing my first landing page setting up an email campaign, and by I think five or six PM that day, which was just the morning hours in the US sending out my first campaign with that book that that's how I spend my first day at at. What were your lives like what what leads to descend? So I was I was I mean what? What list actually had in my? Email That's a good question. This was three years ago. Who Remembers we had. We had a database at that time we were using. A database called you know me that have since been acquired by work. There were an Israeli start up God. was there. A CEO is now with with we work in New York I think their database was one of the databases were using what we were doing as quickly trying to understand, okay. Who should we selling to and the at that time we didn't even have lots of clarity between should these be sales leaders or sales ops or sales enablement or other buyer personas that if you're selling to sales, you do need to understand the differences I won't bore all of your listeners without right now. And basically took an account based marketing approach said we think we can sell to this industry in this country in this size organization and these are the buyer personas that were contemplating between.

"The benefits and the uniqueness of Gong without going into technical explanation, a lot or most be to be companies are using their technical jargon so much they can kind of say, Hey, were important were interesting were expensive. And they're missing out on creating review with message which drives me to thinking about your entire branding because going has went through a massive rebrand. And and I think it's a very, very interesting branding position and interesting processed it so would love it if you can talk a little bit more about it. Sure Happy to address both things in order that you did I, think you know around the way we tell the story of Gong today to us it's second nature but but I agree that there that is a challenge with many many companies I think especially coming from Israel I can speak on behalf of my fellow Israelis. We usually lead a company with the product and it technology and it's really hard to get out of the position of talking about how wonderful the product is and how groundbreaking technology is most customers in reality don't care they absolutely don't care. If, they're easier ways of solving their problems. That's what they want to know about. They rarely care what goes on behind the scenes, what the nuts and bolts or bits and bytes are doing their to make it happen, and if they're several ways of getting that done though choose the one that makes no sense in his most easiest for them to us. They don't need the best whatever transcription engine they. Don't need the fastest network at after they need something that will give them the biggest benefit in easiest way possible and I. think that's one of the things that sets apart Gong our CEO he'd been dove. He was a CEO of science, a very successful BI company before starting Gong and when when people ask him how he thought of the idea for Gong he he starts from the business. Side stories said, Gong was born in a quarter from hell which usually gets a few laughs and then he explains that they had a quarter size since the things were not going as planned and he is a CEO could not understand why and what usually happens is and and I'm sure everyone here has been the situation sales blame marketing for not bringing enough leads marketing blame sales. Forgetting, all the leads they could hope for, but not knowing how to sell to them, and then start the discussions about well is this really a qualified opportunities? Should we really be talking to this person and the only way until recently to to find out what's really going on in your sales market conversations was listening to the raw calls and so a meet who loves to be in the weeds of the details. Started listening to calls, but after like three, four, five. Forty five minutes, sales calls you're done you. No. One can sit and listen to like two hundred calls to start understanding are patterns there of what's making a good sales conversation, Rabat sales conversation, and that's when I got to thinking. Well, there must be a better way and fast forward that that's how long was born, and so I think from day one, we were used to talking about our product not in the sense of. How amazing the technologists and trust me it is but about the value of the business problem that we're solving, it is a huge business problem affecting millions of sales people in the world, and we're out to solve that problem on the way we also get to make like really cool technology, but that's really not the interesting story here. So so that I think addresses the first part of the storytelling aspect that you talked about. Our branding process was was very fun and interesting process is probably worth. Highlighting a few points I I. Think it was literally during my first month..

"Awarding someone the Nobel Prize for peace is always tempting. Fate saw cha the vagaries of human affairs. Yesterday's warmonger is tomorrow's peacemaker and vice versa. That it's not really the Norwegian Nobel Committees Fault when Pulse Charity Makes Mockery of some of their judgements. When you give a piece Gong to someone like Henry Kissinger oh Yasser Arafat? It's just a risk you run. And it is nevertheless startling to see an actual Nobel peace laureate appearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague to defend the government they lead against allegations of genocide. It's pretty much the one thing that isn't supposed to happen. History had given us the opportunity to give up our best just for a cause in which we believed when the Nobel Committee chose to honor me. The road had chosen of my own free will aw became less lonely path to follow sang suci daughter of the founder of modern Myanmar Aung San and a formidable politician diplomat and and activist in her own. Right won the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen ninety-one at the time she was rivaled only by Nelson Mandela as a universally admired Royat. Avatar of all. That was good displaying exemplary courage in resisting. All that was bad. She led the National League for Democracy as it faced down only terrifying and ruthless military GIONTA which had turned Myanma into North Korea with Palm. Trees saying SUCI spent most of the period between Nineteen nineteen ninety nine and two thousand and ten under house arrest. She was a hero aside from the Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded the Sakharov Prize. US Congressional Channel Gold Medal and Presidential Medal of freedom an honorary order of Australia. Honorary Citizenship of Canada and Amnesty International's ambassador of conscience since award. Luke pestle made a film about her. U2 wrote a song about and in time she triumphed the NLD won a landslide election victory in two thousand and fifteen though denied the presidency on a technicality. She became state councillor effectively. Myanmar's prime minister it. It was hailed worldwide as a victory for decency determination and patience and now she's denying that she is some kind of an accessory to crimes against humanity he sang Succi has been fair to say on a journey. These ban mind this complex situation and the challenge to sovereignty and security already in our country when you're assessing the intent of those who attempted to deal with the rebellion. Surely under the circumstances genocidal decider intent cannot be only hypothesis loan and it is important to be clear that while Aung Sang. SUCCI is in The Hague. She is not in the dark. She is appearing voluntarily and has not been charged with any crime the allegation before the ICJ EJ is against her country. Not Her the case has been brought by the Gambia. Backed by the fifty-seven members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Asian a coterie which includes several nations who might want to pause before mounting their high horses where human rights are concerned. The allegation is essentially essentially that Myanmar's recent persecution of the Hindu people Myanmar's Muslim minority. Who lived mostly in the country's raccoon state amounts to genocide this? This is a term with specific legal meanings and it will be for the court to determine if events in Myanmar meet the threshold. What is known is bad enough? Enough since two thousand and sixteen perhaps a million ranger have fled Myanmar mostly to neighboring Bangladesh journalists NGOs and the UN win have reported a consistent pattern of atrocious violence much of it directed at civilians not excluding children Myanmar's military known as has the top Madore have consistently claimed that they are waging a counter insurgency against Islamist terrorists though Sang Suci does not directly command the Tatmadaw. Aw this is also the line that she has held. The most sympathetic imaginable interpretation of aren't sang Suu Cheese behavior. And it's a reach is that that she is still in some respects the prisoner of the same military which once held her under house arrest. She may have calculated. This is a compromise. She has to to make to maintain such democracy as me unmanned now has that if she takes hold in the military the military will once again take charge of the country. This is a question unlikely to interest the hundreds of thousands over hinge in now wondering if they'll ever be able to go home again and they of course are the ones who have have survived the Tatmadaw's pogroms justice for the victims.

"I am a feminist but today Yoga I overheard a woman in the shoe area saying will men men like to claim this way but women to scrub. That's the difference between men and women how they clean and I wanted to say. Excuse me I don't want to be rude. But these binary ways that we talk about men and women do invite a certain culture that says that somehow Manohla always like this and women are like this best you kind of know to cleaning trend. You kind of noted agenda trend. Don't undermine that but saying men do and women do that. It's actually not that helpful but what I wanted to say. Even more was how common link to clean because I missed that pond. I heard that women's scrubbing wing section. How to clean because as far as I can make out not at all but what I did say was nothing talk? Get involved in this lady's life I don't know she doesn't need be tapping around the shoulder and telling her about does not but it's annoying. That would have been really fun though. So if you just gone up and being excuse me I don't think you should prescribed a cleaning gender binary now must stay and then just like and then like the little bells you know the the meditation Gong goes off and then you just evaporate. That bowl sounds off bowl. That could've been my interruption. Maybe it could have Donald Binary that yeah. I must not do that because I feel. It's going to be steeply culturally insensitive. I don't think we should throw that right. I'm a feminist but the last time I I was on the guilty feminist podcast I tweeted about it. I put it on instagram. I shared it on facebook and my mother called me and said congratulations nations. I've listened to the PODCAST. It's very good. You're very funny. Deborah's a lovely person. I just need you to know that you spelled feminists wrong in every single one of your posts. Oh every single. Oh No I cry ball. TURNS ZACK turns out. YOU DON'T SPELL FEMINISTS DEMAND S. I think you put a man into feminist. Yeah stop it right now. It's very on brand for me. I can't spell it the best time I remember in the second grade we were allowed to pick five words to be on our own spelling tests. That were special to us that we needed to learn how to spell so I had to put my name on spelling second grade. I was like nine and I still was like no the nine in the second grade. I think so are nine and six. Are you six. I think I'm nine and everything when in doubt I'm always like when I was nine number you would not nine. I'm a feminist but if I had to give up feminism or yoga for one week it'd depend where my head was Some weeks I really need yoga. I get it. I'm the same way I mean it's only a week. I wouldn't actively anti-feminist but if I had to rest all NAMA state I get it. I am a feminist but whenever I wear a crop top onstage to show my stomach and a fellow curvy woman comes up to me after the show and touches me lightly on the Elbow Elbow and goes I love your body positively. I WANNA puncher. That is the exact same thing as a guy coming up to me. Going your your tits. Look good in that top. It is not to be discussed. It is only to be enjoyed in silence. Yeah I agree because on the live tour I had this this big green sequent Cape and one night. I happened to be walking posted on summers and they had the same green sequence in full please swimsuit saw so. I thought pretty funny if I had that on them with trousers over the tall swimsuit was like a body suit type thing green sequence and I thought it was funny and kind of cabaret but look good and then afterwards one of the other acts message me and said I just want to say that my friend was in the audience tonight and you really inspired her to buy a swimsuit because she didn't WanNa buy some soup for holidays and you're such an inspiration to she. Thought if Debra can do it also the swimsuit so let me a fucking swimsuit inspiration. Yeah I want people look at me and think I can't do that. Why was it no look at the swimsuit go? I would never be able to pull it off. Don't find inspiration in my no. I wanted to have it. What does that mean? Yeah I've been able to let it go. I've not been able to let it go. I'm feminist bus. I saw a cat dressed two two two so that it looks like it had arms coming out of it cites it was like a front only situation like a babe but it looks at the front like the cat is wearing wearing a pink Tutu with point shoes and my first thought was. Where can I get one of those for toast? It's not a feminist outfit. Not Not that balance isn't feminist but to address your cat in. I guess well we have to question the agency of the cat at this point. Yeah does does the CAT WANNA be in sequence toast would no. I'm a feminist but I think top gear in the grand tour. Where are the best television? I've ever seen I genuinely think Jeremy Clarkson and may make the best. Tell you Joe Kendo thank you thank you. I thought I would be a really alone in that like so much okay. I'm a feminist. But if someone was like would you you like to sit down and Rewatch fleabag or the grand tour. GRANDPA I love it.

"Real show starts where they announce quote, China has a long history of spirituality, but in China today, you can be arrested or killed just for meditating. Here is the power of compassion a scene from contemporary China, which by the way, I feel like this is. Avows watching. I'd be like. What's what am I? There is a scene and hopefully earn it is basically a group of young students meeting giant Falun Gong books. They are performing good deeds such as helping old people or chasing down people who had dropped their purses to return it nicely, pure, good deeds that one point a trio of people in black uniforms and giant felt Hamel in Sixers hammer and sickles on their T shirts. Come in beat up the Falun Gong practitioners attempt to murder them of venture -ly. They get their books torn up. They get beaten and destroyed, and then they rise up and in a moment where they can overcome these communist, quote, unquote, thugs they show compassion to the communists at which point the communists abandoned their communism to join Falun Gong there. Some seen apparently a hand histories dramatically, and he's about to give the final blow. But then. In stops in the act of kindness, and like sways, the communist China of so bizarre. Also are a bunch of scenes that feature colorful animations where monks descend from heaven and perform spiritual deeds such as healing incurable. Diseases during cancer ridding the world of evil and afterwards. The reporter for the guardian was standing outside and said that around theater young people with audio recorders will corner patrons. Ask them for quotes and reactions trying to get people to like play up what they just saw. And then the next morning. There is a magazine by the name of the epoch times, which will publish about fifteen different articles on the performance praising it saying that it was the most amazing thing that ever happened such as Toronto's showgoers, smitten was genuine or Shenyun quote extraordinaire. Gary on a different level says Toronto entrepreneur, and I remember seeing like celebrities like Alec Baldwin's brother William Baldwin or something like that. They're like loves our show like these off like beasts celebrities that get pro so wet really took a turn year was the revelation that the times is not a newspaper independently ran it is the. Propaganda arm of Falun Gong thing. I don't want to listen. Well, I understood again, right? I studied propaganda in school. I have a degree that acquit me to see it in the world. Lived importer to me to shown me many situations in instances of propaganda from our own government overseas, governments companies corporations, were leaders, etc. And skimming this newspaper. I think it's a safe bet to call it the propaganda arm of felon gong. I think we have we do have some more info on like how it started. I think we've into later. Yeah. One. So briefly, let's get into a little bit of the history of Shenyun. So I'll take a little bit of this. 'cause I just like I'm like as the person who wrote this. I'm just like oh my God. I have just coming out of me. It's like a waterfall of info. Genuine tries to constantly minimize its relationship to failing gong posters say that it values Chinese culture, which will use in images that drive people in interest who want to see, you know, something typically outside western feeder conventions. It was supposedly established in two thousand six in New York by elite Chinese artists, according to the origin story on their website. They came quote together with a shared vision and passion to revive the story of the lost world of traditional Chinese culture and share it with everyone. It doesn't make a habit of expanding on the story in any way. They rarely give this is where I want to call it the times Shenyun almost never give reports or interviews or exclusives to any newspaper other event times, the only people that actually will report on it. Just consider that. Also it will. Constantly tour promote the show endlessly and rarely as I said grant interviews to any or you know, insiders to anything on the show's production. So Falun Gong also called Falun Dafa, sometimes is the spiritual movement that we brought up that emerged out of the chi-yong boom in China in the early nineties. The boom is obviously like we said Taichi practices that became more popular to the masses..

And Michael Cohen, straight strange. It is when so many lives are being told that rubber Muller said enough is enough. It's unbelievable. Continue with your calls. We have thousands on hold millions and millions are listening. Let's go to Mitchell in Washington where the apples are Mitchell in Washington. Welcome to the Bill Cunningham show Mitchell. How are you? Doing fairly. Well, thank you for taking my call Bill. I wanted to call about the harvesting organs comment that the guy made. But after that, if you'd let me I'd like to make another comment, please. Uh-huh. Damn shaikh. So I should say I'm not a fan of communism. Harvest organs of the Falun Gong because they're so healthy in the eat. Right. And they do exercise. Harvest the organs. Gong on the way to the airport in mobile execution vans. And you can look that up on the internet and find it. Well, Mitchell, I am certain. There's hundreds of thousands of Muslims viciously incarcerated as I speak by the Tchaikovsky. I am certain with prisoners and others, they harvest their organs. It is one of the most repressive regimes on earth that the mainstream media is completely fixated with Russia. Everything is rushing, you know, the Russians are coming. And it's like a nineteen fifty scare with McCarthy that the media wants to create the idea that we should be at war with Russia for someone benefit, but the truly great adversary. We have calms they're the ones that supposedly in ten years will surpass our economic force. They're the ones building islands in the South China Sea, but the mainstream media in this country wants to go to war with with what's Russia, but the cops are the real problem. Absolutely. I completely agree. These people are the worst of the worst. I I have a brother lives in Korea. And it's been working with the South Koreans, or you know, he's a contractor. Used to be the army special forces, actually, technically green beret, actually. Let them. Me and him are in complete agreement are the worst threat. The worst of the worst. And they are they I mean, harvesting organs. They like force abortions on women they like drown babies and buckets. This is like these people. I mean, there is bad as the North Koreans Mitchell. Why is our media fixated on Russia? Russia Russia who wants who wants to go to war with Russia. The mainstream media now is playing the part of McCarthy for the nineteen fifties every stories about Russia about Russia that one hundred thousand dollars in Facebook ads they ran and a four billion dollar election was supposedly the biggest thing in the world to make de legitimate the presidency of forty five I don't get it. When we got major problems in this country, the mainstream media will not touch because they want. I mean, unless you're hold NBC ABC CBS CNN MSNBC wants to go to war with Russia. They want us to fight Russia and the president is kept from having normal relationship with Russia because of the mainstream media. I can answer that question perfectly. Why leave media has been infiltrated since the forties.

I'm sixty seven sixty seven year old high Kwan new was only released from detention last year for his Falun Gong activities. You speaking to me from Toronto where he also lives in exile. Is this the reading of people for organ harvesting or? Just another facet of the ritualized humiliation and sometimes torture. They seem to have been subjected to to come up with our Bush, and what is your holiday on the days when I wasn't being beaten up or into it. I was forced to sit on a small wooden stool from the time I awoke to bat time. They forced me to watch the video or the TV programs that defamed Falun Gong. They were actually using these to brainwash me rules. You don't. If I move as I wish I will be beaten up I will be slapped over my face. I'll be kicked the police guard told leeza drug addicts say you can use all kind of the way to torture her. That's means a toltar- me say, but not beat her. Yeah. Yeah. And drug. Addicts told me, see you'll will be cultured softly, whoever came to the labor camp to see you. They won't see you'll injury. Like, a bruise you won't get this by were told her your softly, and I was as a lady in the room and during that time it was like in summer two thousand five in summer, and the temperature was a forty degree. And I only gave a Leica one small bottle of water for twenty four hours. No enough for food. No enough water. And also, I was forced to cede under stool like sooty slutty centimeters a square is made by the plastic. Yeah. You have to stating their feet close new clothes and who rest hand on your knee. The facts have to be very street sitting there for over twenty hours a day. I'll with all move your now. If you move on the drug addicts, they can ask are drug addicts too swearing at me to could beat me because I heard the woman got beaten up and I heard their screaming. My name is Manfred Novak I'm professor of international law and human rights at Vienna university. And. I had been UN special opportune torture between two thousand four and two thousand and ten and in two thousand five I made an official training vision to China. So tell me about why you went to see any in Beijing. She was also. Well known businesswoman before, but she was part of the Falungong movement, and you know, as a special you'll get many individual complaints communications, if people are being tortured, why for eight of being tortured or actually have been a wasted etcetera. So I was sending an urgent appeal to the government of China on her behalf. And in her case, it took us quite long to locator because she had been moved several times. But we found it and finally in one of these sweet occasions, we labor camps and. Yeah. It was a very emotional encounter because she immediately when I introduced myself, of course, we used to Chinese interpreters. She was very happy to see me until she started to cry. But then she made it very clear to the interpreters that she was happy to see me into a square footage dose coming. But she would not be able to speak to me simply because the very fact that you would talk to me, even if this is a confidential interview and all my interviews VR, confidential. So that China respected this part of my terms of reference, but the very fact that you're speaking to a certain person, and a dispersant is willing to speak to me can have negative consequences for the person, we have to go somewhere in quiet place, where we are not observed, etc. So that is something I cannot hide from the government. And it's I of course, she knew. So she said if I would speak to, you know, then I would most certainly have to stay much longer still in prison. And if I don't speak to you have spent quite some time here, and I have good chances to be released after Philadelphia Manfred Novak some would think it's unlikely that any all the other Falun Gong followers. I managed to speak to would be considered. For organ harvesting as well-known dissidents that too high profile and the disappearances would have be noticed. However activists continue to accuse China of harvesting, the organs of many other lesser known Falun Gong followers. China has not permitted scrutiny of its military hospitals, which undertake transplants, but it has allowed some carefully controlled and pre-announced visits to other transplant centers. Former head of the global transplant surgeons body, the transplantation society, Jeremy Chapman was invited to see inside some hospitals. He's dismissive of the claims of mass organ harvesting, but still feels the Chinese will not be believed on this issue until they're more open to go as far as to say that specific individuals are being killed to provide organs. That is an additional step which innuendo and belief cannot take it has.
