"So much that you can do. Especially with the sleep piece, I have a ten month old and she still wakes up like a ton that night. So there's not always immediate solutions, but at least if you're aware of it, you can start taking small steps towards it. Does that make sense? Amy, this has been so much fun. You're a soul sister for sure right now. We have a lot of similar, similar passions, and I for one just could geek out on fertility awareness all day. But I'm sure this has inspired a lot of people to check it out, maybe consider fertility awareness as their birth control option, or at least just research more about what the other options are, especially if they're experiencing any sort of side effects or negative things with the pill or they're considering getting pregnant and fertility awareness is as equally helpful for that as it is for not getting pregnant as well. So I just want to kind of give a second shout out to that and we'll cover some resources for that towards the end. But first, I always love to ask our guests these little closing questions and the first is what's just one or two self care practices you try to do every day to stay healthy. Yeah, I'm going to answer this in a mindset. Mindset health way. So I do a daily check in. I have like a little Google Doc shout out to my coach in our friends and if she's listening, so this is just a simple Google Doc where I ask myself for questions. It's like, what am I grateful for today? What am I celebrating today? Like a win however tiny or big, it might be. What am I affirming today? So I have several affirmations on I'm a patient and present mom. I have enough time to get everything that I need to get done done. I have enough time with my kids. I have enough time for my business. And then I also have a poor at art section. So this is how I trick myself into journaling and processing things without actually feeling like I have to journal. So if I don't have a lot of time, I'll just take like three minutes to post in the first three questions. What am I grateful for? What am I celebrating? What am I affirming? But if there's something on my mind that needs a little bit more attention, I can take a few more minutes to journal on it in my port out section. So I don't do it absolutely every day, but if I, if I do do it every day, I can definitely tell a difference to where if I'm stacking off it for a little bit, so that is like my daily self care practice. I love that. And that's a Google Doc that a Google form that you've created for yourself. So it's just a Google Doc. So for every day of the month, like Monday, and Tuesday, and then I just copy these questions. And I write my short answer. To them. Well, I think it would be cool to do it as a Google form. And then you've got those questions that you could just put your answers in. And then it would turn it into like a little spreadsheet at the end of the year or so. Oh my gosh, I love how you're just going with that. I can tell you geek out over a spreadsheet. So thank you for that. Yeah, finally, Amy, what's just one thing we should all ditch completely and replace with something healthier today? I feel like after today's conversation it won't come as a surprise that I'm going to vote for hormonal birth control. And this is, again, I said this earlier, not that the pill is wrong for everybody, and not that everybody should ditch it. But I feel like most women probably don't need to be on it. Or would even choose not to be honored if they have all the information of how the pill works. And accurate information about the alternative. So I'm just going to leave it at that hormonal birth control. All right. Wow, Amy, I know there's a lot of women who will want to learn more about fertility awareness and how to do it. I know we were contemplating maybe kind of giving more instructions on that here, but I want to just say here that if you're considering fertility awareness, it is one of the most empowering things that you can do. And the first step for that really is finding a good resource and reading about it and educating yourself about not just what the steps are because they're very easy. It was like taking your temperature, looking at your mucus, charting it down. It's fairly straightforward, but so much of the empowerment comes from really understanding how your body works. And it's not that complicated, but it does take, you know, finding a good book or good resource to learn it. So Amy, do you have a favorite resource you like to point people to that are interested in learning more about that? So the way that I learned was through a book that's called taking charge of your fertility by Tony weschler. But what I find is that especially with many women, it can only take them so far. So I actually teach the justice method of fertility awareness. And this is a very systemized approach to charting your cycles, which basically gives you the option to look at your cycle as a diagnostic tool almost. So we have very detailed descriptions for cervical mucus. And it is a lot easier, oftentimes.

"Can do that with voice typing. You go to the tools menu, you enable voice type, voice typing, excuse me. It might ask you if the app can use your microphone, and then once you do that, you can get rolling. It's really great. It's super useful. Also can come in handy if you want to record certain things as well. Something to keep in mind though, if you're leaving it on and you're just kind of freely talking, make sure that your computer doesn't time out because then it'll stop recording. So just keep that in mind. You don't want it to go to sleep and then lose whatever it is you're recording. The other big thing and this is a really good one too. If you're working and you're wanting to do some drafts is draft an email in Google Docs. So basically what you do is you'll type in someone's name. You'll go to your contacts, pick who it is. And then you can just start drafting the email. It's very cool if you're thinking kind of longer term, you're just thinking of a longer term email that you need to pull together. And it allows you to do it freely, because here's the thing that scares everybody no matter what. You're in outlook or Gmail or whatever it is, and you're crafting an email and you're just kind of prepping it and then you accidentally like hit send. No fun at all, right? So this is a nice way to do it without worrying about that. When you are ready to send though, you click the Gmail logo on the left and the compose window pops up, you double check everything and then you can send it super useful super convenient if you use Gmail and Google Docs and you're wanting a different way to draft your emails.

"Partially in response to the regularly documented fact that the posts garnering the most interactions on their platform every day are from biased sometimes misinformation lead and sources facebook announced that it will be publishing quarterly reports showing what content actually gets the most views overall therefore what is seen by the most people not just interacted with the most. The first of these reports came out yesterday showing public news feed content seen by us-based users from april first. Through june thirtieth. The report includes the top twenty domain sources link posts pages and general posts despite the fact that new york times reporter kevin russa's manually run twitter account that posts the top performing link posts in the us on facebook every single day based on interactions shows folks like ben shapiro and sean hannity. Making it into the top ten. Nearly every day neither of them made the cut for top views in facebook's official reports orissa's data by the way comes from facebook's publicly accessible analytic site crowd tangle so both of these are official numbers they're just looking at different data sets the top viewed content across the whole platform hasn't been publicly accessible in this way until this report instead of the some of the sources that reuss has found are interacted with the most everyday the number one top viewed domain source of all non facebook content shared on facebook.

Well, I'm good, and I hope you could help me out. Okay, So I am in high school and the school year ends in a couple days and over the past, I'd say maybe a month or so. My computer has been. I don't know if you're deleting them, or my assignments are going missing. Did your dog ate your homework again? And does a teacher by that? No. So I'm going to? You know, there's no reason for you to lie to me. I'm not going to give you a great so I believe you. The teacher. The teacher isn't gonna, but I believe you So So you're like you're writing. It's on the hard drive, and then you go back there and it's gone. Well, it usually is happening with Google docks. Oh, yeah, I will. I'll do my assignment of fully completed all turn it in and then 2 to 3. Days later, it will show up as UN submitted And I think to myself all I can just go press recent man, I'll be fine. But I go click on the document, and it's just completely wiped. I checked in history I press undo. I checked the files of the computer and I can't find anything. How frustrating bad enough that you got to do remote school and you got to do all that zooming? Yeah, And now you do the work and and it's disappearing on you. That is very frustrating. Three quarters of all my work is gone. You're using Google classroom? No, we're using a thing called canvas. Canvas. Yeah, so, but it's a school account, right? Yes, sir. I would ask. I don't know if the school has an I T person they do and they said to call Google No, because canvases, not Google Canvas is its own thing. But the thing is, um, they think, And I think it's more of the Google docks. Problem. Well, calling Google is there. It's not gonna do anything. There's nobody at Google. You're going to get a python script. It's going to you never there. Never. You can't get some So does the school. Have a Google account? Or do you have a visit? Your account of the schools account? Well, it's my account at the school set up for school is a school account, then Yeah. So the school might have a way to get through to Google because they're using Google classroom. Probably They're using Google four schools, right? Um, but so I get it. So you, you submit it through canvas. Mhm and canvas understands Google docs. Yes, okay. So you don't have to, like, download a file and then uploaded to canvas. You just say Hey, no, this is it. Yeah, they work with each other. Okay, so it's not getting through. It Sounds like it's not getting through the campus like you're pressing Submit, and it's just not getting there. And somehow, Google docs has decided well. I guess the Google Doc should never do that. By the way, one of the things that's great about Google Docs is, you know, unless you explicitly Throw it out. It's going to still be there. Even if you deleted it goes into the trash, and you can recover it exactly, which is why this is really confusing. It's frustrating, and it doesn't show up in your history. No, not at all. I'll go even into the editing history of the document. You know, it'll only show me the day that the document was created and that's it. I mean, I've written multiple essays worth like 101 150 points Just gone now. Oh, so frustrating, like six days to do like 40 assignment. Oh, I'm so sorry. This really stinks. Yeah, Bobby, I am. This is the a nightmare. It's okay. No, you're no. You're being very nice about it. It's not okay. That's terrible. Um I don't. I don't know. I don't know You shouldn't have to. Why is my assignments folder from canvas missing in my drive? All right, Scooter X. Who's really the genius of Googling? In our chat room has come up with something. Have gone into campus settings paired unauthenticated Google Drive of authorized Google Drive. Able to search and access individual students dress I wonder if canvas is clobbering. It must be saying, Oh, yeah. Alright. You submitted. I'm gonna deleted that's you Look and see if there's a setting in canvas. It does that because that would be wrong, right? I mean, I'm not really super big on technology. But, um, I've kind of noticed that on canvas a little button that you press to submit is never in the same spot. Oh, that's crazy. So in my mind, I mean, I'm probably wrong, but what I think is like I pressed the button. And it kind of sense is never in the same spot. It doesn't really recognize when I'm Yeah. Yeah, that could be you think you're pressing the button, but it's not. It's just where you see the button, but it's not what canvas Wants. What a mess. How sympathetic as the I T guy at school. Well, I mean, I'm guessing her only as sympathetic as they can be, because there's nothing they really can do. They just I mean, they just told me that as long as I get the assignments in, and they'll grade them, That's basically it that you're on your own. Yeah, man, This is why remote Has been such a nightmare. So all I can say is print. Um next time before you do anything when you write your assignment printed out. I don't know what the answer is. We're going to keep working on. I'm not gonna let you down by because that stinks. Um, somebody might come up with something. Uh, it's I, You know, I would keep looking in your Google docs.

Task-Level vs. Project-Level Thinkers: Finding the Right People for Your Business
"Thing i want to cover is something i've covered briefly danced around it and qna episodes but it's around hiring folks with different mindsets. And most specifically i think of name for this but i think of it. As a task level thinker project level thinkers and owner level fingers and back in the day when i was hiring virtual assistants. Fresh off the four hour workweek. This is what two thousand seven or eight. I realized i could try to replace myself by hiring five dollar an hour virtual assistant in the philippines and they were very much task level. I would record a screen cast and it would take me thirty minutes to upload it to website and then send it to them this before. Loom it all those things. But i could outsource some i guess some rudimentary truly just repeatable tasks almost things you could. You could almost automate with code. But maybe they would take too long to do or things that were just easy to throw into google doc or a screen cast and so for years i operated with task level thinkers and the i was happy as a basically a solo procure with seven or eight. I think actually peaked at nine contractors. Who are helping me. This is different. You know folks who were doing design work folks who are doing administration folks who were doing email support developers and it was like all right. Here's your next task to take care of this. But what i realized is i was then doing all the owner level thinking which was longer term stuff and the project level thinking which was okay. This project need there's project management right. It's like this project needs seven things to happen. So now i get to manage all those people and that was fine when i was small. That was fine before. I wanted to grow multimillion dollar company but there was a turning point for me. Let's say it was around. Twenty ten twenty seven where hired a couple of people who were more practicable thinkers and they themselves i could hand an entire project and they would then other resources for me or they would just do the whole thing themselves because they were essentially full stack employees a developer term. I think most of you know it but as someone who can who can design and who can code and it can do database work and maybe even devops work but if someone who has a multitude of skills and that's when i realized oh this is the achievement unlocked here and this is why when folks do raise a lot of funding. They will hire individual contributors. Who you could say well. They're thinking about their own task. But you'll also you're able to afford Thinkers which i was not able to afford prior to that point because i never had a business that generated income

And i know if i wait longer could be longer. But i'd rather get closer to an actual delivery date before i placed an order. Because what if i pay for something or something. I want a close to instant gratification. Yeah and also. I mean that would require her to not have an ipad at all for like two months almost two months smart lady that mallory i cannot connect us to sillier. That's a good question. We should ask apple that they fuck it. I conduct my it. Went back to a fucking seller connection. What's going on with that man especially when the ipad pro in one as cellular connection like tam could be a real smart ass and be like well. You know you just because ipad has. It doesn't mean to maximum half because you can't run mac apps on your ipad either. So what's your point sir. But you can send text messages from your ipad showing up from your map to still put cellular in the mac gotta do man gotta do it gotta do. Maybe that'll be a big surprise.

I really hope not. I'll it'll be too late. It'll be too late it'll be too late. Yeah and honestly mike honestly. I mean i could be wrong. I think mallory is better suited with an ipad pro.

There's no washing machine in the kitchen. But in other countries that's not true and so you notice that things are standardized differently based on perhaps even regions in countries but in sweden it. It's really clear. How how standardized things are at. It makes it so much easier of course to move around and feel comfortable and safe in a new space on. This makes me think. Again of jared spool. Because now he's going to love us they well what. He's talked about with current knowledge. So we discussed before about consistency on this comes into consistency and his argument. There is well not consistency itself. Us the thing. It's appreciating current knowledge on what you're talking about. Though with the top top drawer. Been cutlery all the been been under the sink. In sweden that been consistent is only one aspect of it. it's useful when the current knowledge of the people that are going to use it. Is that bins around sinks. yes right. there's nothing. I mean if if you need to teach people into sinks and then that's not a current knowledge different thing. It's kind of appreciating what they know what they expect understanding the their mental model or even their expectations of an object As part of it and we could probably talk for hours about going to tell and understanding the shower because you see people post on twitter about that all the time how even navigate the hot water and turning on the faucet and stuff like that so many of the things that are talked people's minds exactly so excellent stuff and i.

WSJ Tech News Briefing
Employers aim for hybrid working after Covid-19 pandemic - How will it work?
"Exactly a year ago the pandemic forces all out of the office and our studios and sent us working from home. Well we were setting up our at home audio booths. A lot of other people around the world were setting up their at home offices and it soon became clear that we'd need some long term solutions for that not just laptop stacked on top of piles of books. So that's when we turn to our senior personal tech columnist to anna stern and some of you may remember. We had a regular segment with her on the task of working from home now a year later. Were hoping that our days of working remotely are numbered but even when we do reach the other side of the pandemic a slew of companies have announced that they aren't expecting employees to go back to work in the same way as in the pre pandemic days. The new buzzword is hybrid. But what does that mean exactly. Well who better to answer that question. Then of course joanna stern. She's back with us today. Joanna so great to have you here so good to be back all right so right now. It's me sellin my home studio you and your home office. But we're all excited to get some more real facetime in person you've been talking to a bunch of companies. What are they saying about this idea of hybrid work. What does that mean. They are all saying the word hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid work. It means that you will work some time at home and time at the office and the analysts are saying that the brunt of people want this people want to work sundays at home. And there's a magic number. Two days i heard the number two to three days so many times in reporting this story everyone is saying we'll spend two to three days at the office or two to three days at home. You pick the number of days so that so bad fifty fifty give or take. Let's talk about what that's going to look like many of us work in open offices. How are those gonna change with this hybrid model so it definitely depends on your organization and how they plan to shake things up and move the spaces around but knowing that we might spend two to three days at home. It doesn't make sense for many of these companies to have permanent desk space for everybody. So that's why there are these new models of thinking about what the the office space will look like and go through. What i think are three ways. This could look at your company. One is same old right. Nothing changes you. Actually go back to your old desk. Maybe there's some more distance between you and your colleague that's nice you don't get the smell them smell bad anymore. It's great the other idea. This is number two which is becoming really popular because of that point that not. Everyone should have their own desk because not everyone's going every day. Is this idea. And i promise you. This is not my term in. It's horrible turam hot Hosking means that you don't have an assigned test you come in you get a new desk you leave you come in another day. You have a different desk and again it makes sense because not everyone is in on the same day. One of the people i spoke to for the story is the ceo of salesforce joanne. All saskia and she explained to me how they are moving to that model. Everyday you come in you find with your team if you want or you know wherever whoever you might be working with you grab a desk in there you go. And we have a crew that comes in at night and they reset the monitors and reset chairs reset standing desks. So the next day when you come in is completely clean completely sanitized. So we're already doing that will now. We're going to do that with most of our spaces and then the third one is really a big change and it's no desk. You have no desk. You're really just going to the office to collaborate with people to go to meetings and companies are doing. This dropbox is one of them. They are calling their their new spaces. Dropbox studios really call it in office anymore. And you just go in you have meetings you collaborate you bond with your colleagues and then you go home and you work from home most of the time. So let's talk about that working from home piece. We've all gotten pretty used to our at home. Setups how is this hybrid. Model going to change those. What are some of the new challenges. I think the big when we have to think about is that we're going to be bringing stuff back and forth and back and forth a lot laptops other. Techy wanted home. Or you want at. The office headphones microphones that kind of stuff. In some cases you won't bring it and you will have a situation at your office where you can keep some of it there but i think in some cases you really are going to want to drag that stuff back and forth because you might only have one of them or you like the thing that you use. Some companies are getting creative about how employees get the extra tech might need. Here's sales for ceo. Joanna subscale again. We provide any role that they need so they want an external keyboard they can have asked. They want mouse. They can have that they. Just get it out of the the vending machine. I need a keyboard and outcomes a keyboard. Did she say vending machines yes. She said vending machines and at salesforce. Unlike some other offices that we may work in. You don't get stale cookies or you. Don't get stale doritos. You've met computer peripherals and it's pretty simple. This is just a way for the it department not to be constantly responding to requests. That i need a new mouse or need a new headset. You're in the salesforce offices. They have vending machines. They're inside there. You go you swipe your card you get it and you don't pay for it. This is this is all free. Means like you're getting it from the department at another nice thing at salesforce to is that once you've gotten these peripherals they give you a cubby or locker to put your stuff in so you don't necessarily have to keep dragging back and forth your keyboard or your mouth your headset. You have it in your space at work. You got home. You have your home setup you come to work you grab your peripherals. You set them up. Got it okay. So that's the tech side of things but what about just communication. I mean we've been doing so much communication online. If some people are in the office some people are at home. How's that going to work. The biggest mistake you can make is thinking that you're going to go back to the office and you're not going to be video calling anymore. Don't think terry okay. And i spoke at length with the ceo of logitech about this name is bracket daryl and he knows a thing or two. About webcams impersonal. Webcams are going to continue to be important in enabling conference to superport. You've got Dynamic where it's hard to imagine going to the office for so many companies didn't have a lot of your neighbor rooms where you go by yourself. Do video call with few people do small group. It's hard to imagine video neighboring those rooms especially when it's so affordable. Obviously logitech is very excited about this because this is their business. Everyone has tried to buy a webcam from logitech in the last year. But other companies have said this to me to zoom. Told me this microsoft. Lots of companies webcams everywhere. Okay so we've talked about video calls but we're using technology for a lot of other communication that we would have done in person before right we've been using slack teams google products to collaborate. What's in store for us on that front. Yeah i mean you have to think about it as we're actually all remote workers now even when we're at the office because not everyone is going to be at the office with us. So that means we have to lean on things like slack and microsoft teams or whatever. Your company uses more to communicate because we're all going to be distributed and so slack in these companies are specifically trying to look at their products and change their products to help with this hybrid. Model slack is working on one feature. They told me about where you can send a video message to the entire team so instead of having to do constant video calls someone on your team can put out one short video clip to everyone in the in the channel and say something so everyone on the same page about it and again that cuts down on the friction of. Hey you said something in the office but the other person wasn't in the office and they missed what you said so. It's really important. The other thing that i'm excited about that they're coming out with is kind of like a audio drop in conference call thing that will let you create an audio call and have other other people jump in. I like to think of it as clubhouse but in slack google's doing a lot in this space to they've added some functionality to work space which includes all their collaboration tools like meat and doc slides etc. One feature. That i think is really important. Is this ability to set your status and let people know where you are ahead of. Google workspace aerosol. Tarot also gave me in scope on how they're planning to beef up. Google docs and this is something that we're going to be delivering this year and we started to introduce. How do you move from. The collaboration experienced made us famous. So the idea that we can all jump in and be the dueling curse into to say. Hey let's enrich that and go from like dueling pursers with names to faces and voices that live alongside the document. That's like a marriage of google meat and google docs right. Yeah i'm i'm pretty excited about it. I mean sometimes. I don't necessarily want my editor yelling at me. When he's editing a my script but at least you know everyone is right you. You know what. They're what they're working on and whether they are actually Looking at the documents. I think that's pretty cool. Said like a true boss. Qatari all right. So what about the home office side of things. How are our home. Office is going to be changing the going forward. I don't think they change much. I think if you've set up a really nice office you're going to keep working there and you're gonna wanna keep working there. Some of the companies and the large companies. I spoke to talked about continuing to make employees feel comfortable in their home offices which means nice stipend survived tech or furniture. Obviously the ceo of logitech is pretty excited that we're going to continue to improve our home
Sentinel's Sinatraa Accused of Sexual Abuse by Ex-Girlfriend
"What a sad day in Esports, once again after being able to celebrate the women in Esports on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday have been a stark reminder of how far we still need to be go. First off before I get into this episode a trigger warning. This minute is going to contain details that include sexual abuse gaslighting harassment and rape on my dreams and the Esports minute from a sports network. So you've seen the allegation by now. I can imagine J one better known as Sinatra has been accused of sexual abuse with plenty of proof by Cleo his ex-girlfriend Thora is the former MVP of the OverWatch league has been playing ballarin for the central since retiring from the uw-l. The allegations are long and I'll link down below they are difficult to read but it is extremely important to do so in the Google Doc Cleo details how Sinatra coerced her into sex made her feel guilty for not wanting to have sex and progress past the point where she was saying no to confirm You having sex with her that's rape. We should call it what it is. There's audio of them having sex where you can hear that situation play out. Clearly. The write-up is nine pages long including screenshots of many different conversations. I want to read a section at the end that I think is especially important quote if this isn't proof enough, I'm not sure anything will ever be to get you to understand the hurt those done to me by this man. It's not his word against mine. It's his word against multiple points of proof and an audio of his voice not allowing me to say no to having sex and quote. She's right and while many people have spoken out about how horrible this is other voices have chosen once again to ignore a victim. The fron is one of the high-profile ones eating out quote e girls can be scary as a twitch streamer. They will try to debate or photoshop evidence to fuck you. I'm not saying she is one, but she could be and quote I really Dubose. Giving his horrible message a platform but I think it's important as it reconfirms what Cleo said at the end of her message. She knew some people wouldn't believe her even with the evidence. I hope a community we see these types of people for who they are and shut them off as this won't be the last time this happens victims shouldn't need nine-page Google Docs detailing their trauma complete with audio recordings and screenshots of multiple conversations for people to believe them. And when that happens that people's first reaction is somehow to blame Photoshop just shows how damning it is and how far people will go to not believe someone in this

I've i've been on other people's podcast that use it but i've never used it myself Yeah i don't like there's no video component. That's the only thing you can run zoom and runs and caster and. I have done that before. But yeah so i've i've switched that up i upgraded my computer about a year ago because my old computer could not handle all the editing that i was doing and it was taken the hours longer. 'cause it literally would just freeze or shut down. So i had to upgrade my computer to be able to handle the processing of editing and all of all of that type of stuff and i would also agree. I think i've really been focused a lot on my overall systems and my overall processes of just trying to make it as efficient as possible. And i know. I'm not the queen of that by any means but i've really tried to formulate a process so it's not just like oh what do i need to do next like. I know exactly. I do this i then i do this then i do that. And it's all just kind of streamlined. I created very specific templates for my preparation slash show notes. So i like this. Google doc and there's a template on there and it's how i prepare for my episodes and then it's very easy for me to just cut and paste him and you know delete and all this kind of stuff and adjusted for my show notes which is fantastic and then if anything changes within my process i added in there so then i know i need to. I need to add this or i need to delete this. It goes into the templates so then for the next time. It's already there. i don't have to think about it. I don't have to remember it for the next time..

"It's my four step blueprint for turning any product idea or skill into a huge cash cow. And if you download that pdf and look at it. You'll see that the tactics the strategies that talk about their apply to almost anything you do in your online business even live streaming shows are. We're going to talk about today. C. over at my other company offline sharks. We do a regular facebook live. Show friday at three pm eastern. And we've been doing this for a while and we've learned a lot of things on the way. So i thought i would share some strategy some tactics we use to help you. Run your own successful livestream show. So first and foremost what a lot of the gurus won't tell you is that doing a livestream is a long game play. What do i mean by long game play. I mean consistency is the key when you start to do it even if you have an audience when we started our livestream we already had an audience our email list but our attendance on our livestream started off really really low right. It's gradually built over time as we've consistently shown up and done the live show week after week after week after week at the same time. So if you aren't planning to make that kind of a commitment to your livestream show. It's better to just not do it. You don't want to be one of those people that start something and then it just peters out and they don't keep going and also just expect that in the beginning you may have no one on your live stream event or very few people but you still have to treat it like. There's a lot of people there because people will watch the recordings the replays wherever you post them now. We do our live show inside our private facebook group and we do it again. Like i said every friday at three pm eastern and a couple of things we found that have made this really really easy is one. You need to plan out your life show. You need a planet out so that on the day you're supposed to do it. It's automatic so let me give you some things that we do for that one we use show notes and this can just be a google doc that you fire up and make bullet points on of what you want to talk about during the show but us show notes because you think you're going to remember everything you want to say but when you get on the live event and the cameras rolling that's usually when your mind goes blank so it's great to have show notes pulled up so you can constantly refer to them.

Ab decided to combine the two to create hyper fluent. So after she narrow down the services she would offer including personalized one on one language courses cooking sessions in different languages translating and interpreting and more while she was getting hyper fluent services. Squared away able was offered a fellowship by the ministry of education of indonesia to study bahasa indonesia for a year even in her new role thousands of miles in twelve time zones away. Eva continued to focus on setting up a side business. She made business cards and bought a new camera to take professional photos on location while in indonesia. She made her first website. Which at the time was more of a block pricing structure dependent on what the service was and for how long a person needed it free tutoring. The price was fixed but if someone needed a series of manuals translated the price dependent on the number of words the target language the timeframe and sector. It's likewise for interpretation. The price dependent on the sector the distance to travel for the assignment and the duration. She also decided to price services differently in different countries in reflection of market realities. The first clients for hyper fluent came after she plays her profile in different teaching platforms such as university tutor dot com but like so many. New businesses are most successful marketing. Technique has been word of mouth. One of asia's prince spoke about hyper flew to an acquaintance. Who happened to be the personal assistant for an nba player. That basketball star became a client was also through connections that she landed her most significant gigs with the bank. Bloomberg and for some of the wealthiest families in new york city. She's also active on instagram her favorite online platform about that website. It's no longer just to block. A couple years ago she upgraded one with all the features she wanted. And it's now much more personalized scents. Beginning hyper fluent in two thousand. Eleven avis had about six hundred and fifty clients. She currently prophets around fifty thousand dollars a year from macedo also and yes. This is still aside us oil. Her full job is project manager. The international centers for precision oncology. Even with the busy job she plans to keep offering language services after the pandemic subsides. Yes i can't wait either. It's going to happen. She'll also began offering a one to two week. Immersion program in italy called mummy. And i go to sicily. This program will aim to teach italian two moms and their or daughters through immersing themselves in country says that some of our favorite memories have been through her business since she's learned four more languages worked and cooked with refugees in berlin and visited more than sixty five countries. All right i have a suggestion. Here is in a similar place. That able was a few years ago. If you happen to speak four or five languages only four or five right my justice. Don't try to do everything at once. Don't try to offer translation and interpretation and tutoring and cooking classes. It's great that it's been able to work for abe. And obviously she's been doing this a number of years now and she's found the perfect rhythm between her day job on her side hustle. But i think for a lot of people. You're actually going to be more successful in this field. If you're just doing one of those things maybe even for a specific target market like for example One of asia's client bases is wealthy families in new york city. You could say okay. I'm gonna do language tutoring for kids from well off families in this particular area where it could be something totally different but just picking something. I think is going to help a lot. So you're not just overwhelmed and trying to do it all also. I really loved the google doc method. You know when he got back from her california road trip. She made a google doc and brainstorm services she could operate using her language skills and from there she made various observations. Like oh i should get a certification to be medical interpreter and probably some other observations as well so just kind of scratching things out and making notes of your skills and what services. Those talents might lend themselves to can be very helpful.

How to Create a Safety Net For Your Business
"I decided to do this lesson today. Because i hear from so many entrepreneurs about the stresses of running a business. The stresses of the unknown the stresses of the market whether it's a market crash or a pandemic or in some cases in some places in the world war these things can affect economies can affect your market can affect your business for an indefinite amount of time. You don't know how long that slumps gonna last. When covid started people thought. Oh this is going to be all done and dusted in a couple of months for good year in and people still don't know how long this is going to affect our lives and of course our businesses. So what you do when the inevitable will happen for talk about change things will change around your business in your environment in your market. One of the best things you can do to set yourself up to have that safety. Net is to make sure you have healthy profit margins. I know sounds very obvious. But this is just the first step. And he's gonna allow you to feel a little bit more comfortable. You should be working on building a war chest of funds for your business. This is not just for a rainy day. But it allows you to have a fallback something that you can use to pivot in your business just in case you have to reinvent yourself. This is what apple is so powerful. They have over two hundred and forty five billion dollars in cash in the bank. Why do you think. Apple doesn't just reinvest that money to make more money to build more products to hire more people. Will they know this rule. You have to have a safety net. Even apple is not totally immune to the things that can happen to them. Now i'm not asking you to have two hundred forty five billion dollars in the bank but the healthier margins the more likelihood you'll be able to have some cash reserves if you're self funded business a two one ratio should be your minimum meaning for every dollar you spend. You should be making to that means at the end of the month. You should be making double what you spent that month. Which means you have the equivalent of what you spent that month in cash. Leftover that you can put in the bank and safe now. Of course that's going to be counted as a prophet come tax time but your corporate tax are going to be a lot less than your income tax than if you just pocketed the money now. Having cash reserves is not as good. Because you can use that cash. If you need to create a new product to pivot you need to change but also by having some surplus having some cash in the bank Lenders are so so more likely to give you a line of credit. That will extend your runway that will extend your likelihood to be able to reinvent yourself like we say money is the oxygen of any business so the more of an extra reserved tank. You have of oxygen the better because things might be going well right now and they could go better but they could go worse to gotta plan for those rainy days or months or even years. Sometimes sometimes abysses can take a slump and then come back. It could be the market. It could be the fact that they're still doing. Research and technology is not there yet but it will be a couple of years. It could be that. They took a hit on their brand. And then you some time to recuperate. So that's the finances okay. But that's not all there are other liabilities in your business that you may not be aware of like the people that you work with the people that you hire. What's your safety net. What's your backup plan. If your top engineer leaves you or decide to retire what do you do if your best copywriter decides to part ways or your social media marketer Decides to work for different company. Can't be seen a panic and you can't allow your systems or your business to just totally stop doing. What only does because somebody's leaving. This is why systems are so important in a business when you're building a business or building a set of systems and you want to document these systems in what we call. Soap's standard operating procedures is literally. Google docs writing out exactly how to do. Every task in your business and the person who does every role so say for example the customer service manager in your accompany their job other than being the customer service manager is creating an sap for their job. This is gold. This is one of the biggest assets you can build your business because that way everybody can live and breathe comfortably. Why because save for example somebody in our company leaves. You have a playbook to give somebody new and say hey. This is how you do your job. This is what was done Before this is what your predecessor was responsible for in this. How did it so building and soap's in your business creates a layer of safety just in case something happens and by the way something will happen. People will leave your business. This is the nature of employment people. Move on next if you can afford it especially in the most critical positions in your business have some redundancy so for example if you're in the service industry and you service people on the phone then is a good idea to have more than one. Customer service agent right. Just get somebody leaves you. You don't have any agents left. You have a few backup right. You have people that are trained up and can do the job. They might have to do some extra hours. But you're not left high and dry if you're running a software company. He's redundancy in the engineering department. This creates a safety net okay. You're don't lose nights of sleep if somebody leaves your company next. Is your critical tools. Have some redundancy with your tools. And i'm talking about just the major once. You don't actually have to buy these tools to have the research and know what's available so if you need to switch out you know exactly where we're going. What are your backup tools. What's your backup website servers. What's your backup domain name registrar. What's your backup payment processor. If you have to change things around if you have to swap out which ones are they just going to be a list people that you've already vetted you don't have to do any homework afterwards when switch. You're ready to go.

How to Generate Hundreds of Content Ideas to Support Your Business with Melanie Deziel
"When we're talking all about how to generate hundreds of content ideas to support. Your business and melanie is a wonderful person to talk about this wisdom melanie. Why why do entrepreneurs need content for their business. Break it down. One of the things that we realized in our in our human life are like interpersonal life. Is we tell stories all the time you know when you're catching up with friends or talking to family. It's all about sharing information in telling stories. And i think what happens is when we put ourselves in our business mode we forget that sometimes those human natural stories are what really connects best with people. And so. it's a really important tool for us to be able to attract consumers who can attract customers who will have a better understanding of what it is that we stand for and what we do. It's a way to showcase your expertise to show what it is that you are so good at that you actually went out and created a business around that skill. it's also a really good way to keep that customer engaged because for a lot of our businesses. It's not something people are buying every single day right. There might be weeks or months or maybe even years between each time that they engaged with us. So we need something worth saying in the interim so content can be a really powerful tool for attracting retaining engaging your audience and making sure that you're still top of mind. They're still thinking of us to learning from you and engaging with you when it comes time to make a purchase decision down the line do all businesses need content dues every way shape and form every type of business need content. I think absolutely you know one of the things kind of toughest. Content is a bit of a buzzword right. And so maybe some of your listeners are thinking that content means youtube channel or podcast like yours but content also includes emails that you're sending to your audience that includes the copying the imagery on your website. So you know it's everything you're doing on social media and so i don't think there are too many businesses out there that are thriving without a website without a social presence without any email list. They're generally doing at least a couple of those names. You know so we have to. We definitely have to be more aware of how we're communicating with our audience and all those different ways so back in two thousand twelve. I looked in the mirror. And i said john if you're honest with yourself like you're just not a super creative quote unquote type and i was honest with myself that i just wasn't so i decided to go down. The path of encouraging and asking and then having other individuals provide the content for me. And i was gonna be in the form of these interviews. And i've now done over twenty seven hundred interviews in past eight years and guess what like i'm relying on other people's creativity other people's content for my content distribution channel. Which is this podcast entrepreneurs on fire. So that's my question like what if we're not creative types. What if somebody in fire nations like kind of like jail delek. I'm not super creative. Can we still come up with content ideas. I have a confession jail day when you said back in two thousand twelve. I wasn't creative. I got a pit in my stomach. And i held my breath like no no. We can't have that. It's so sad because some of us in studies prove this out when we're young when we're kids. We have so many creative ideas. We are really uninhibited with sharing all the crazy things we think of. You're telling stories about dinosaur aliens that become zombies and take over your middle school. You know you. You are totally uninhibited and as we get older. We learned to ignore those things to suppress. It were afraid of being made fun of or making a mistake or failing or whatever that that fear is for you so we all have that native innate creative ability and the way. I convinced everyone that you are in fact creative is think of all the creative ways. You have imagined that things would go wrong you. There is absolutely no end to the creative solutions. You can come up with for all the reasons why something won't work or or why it's going to be difficult so we still have that skill. Usually what's lacking is a prompt or inability to activate it when you need it so when we say we're not creative. It's usually more that you you're sitting down to to achieve some goal like come up with content idea you know figure out what to say and your next youtube episode or email and you can't come up with anything on the spot and you convince yourself it's because you have no creative abilities deep in your soul anywhere So really what it is. We often lack a system. And that's what's really important is understanding that you do have that creative ability everyone does and it's more about figuring out how to activate it when you need it. It's sort of like if you think someone woke up in the middle of the night and said arm wrestle and you lost and then you're like well. I have no strength. I am a legal arm. Human being you know and that's often how we treat our creativity we give it no warning we give our brains this challenge to come up with some huge solution out of nowhere no warning and then we we count ourselves out you know and that's one thing as well that i think that a lot of people don't realize is that being creative doesn't mean you have to come up with a great idea every single day or just this stroke of brilliance every week or so it's like i can look back over my eight year career where i've generated over twenty million dollars in my business and i've come up with like three or four good ideas like i've been creative like with these ideas like just a handful of times but they've made all the difference like those two or three or four or five things again over eight years fire nation are been what has been responsible for the bulk of my success of my financial success of my brand six ass etc etc so one thing that i want to talk about next melanie as you break down a really impressive content system in your book so first off give us a little background about this book in then expound upon the system yes the the book is called the content field framework how to generate unlimited story ideas and i wrote this book because of statements made before saying that you're not creative it breaks my heart so what i wanted to do is really break down what it is that i do in my head when i'm trying to come up with content ideas i know that that's kind of my superpower is to come up with ideas off the cuff and so i wanted to put as much of that process into the book as possible so people could adopt that for themselves if it's helpful for coming up with ideas so at the core it really just means understanding that while we think of content ideas and creativity as this amorphous saying you know amuse or a lightning strike or lightbulb moment it's really just two things there's a focus so it's about something right there's a perspective or a lens through which were telling our story and then there's a format we're bringing it to life in some way like audio here or video max info-graphic whatever else so if you understand that formula that every piece of content is just a focus plus a format all you need store a laundry list of focuses in formats at your disposal and you can create combinations at the drop of a hat so that's really the goal with the book to kind of prompt to think about content ideas in that way unless you have that shared language to talk about it becomes a lot easier to say okay. I want to tell a history focused story about this particular topic. What's the best way to bring that story to life Maybe a timeline would be really helpful. It kind of gives you a step by step process to activate that creativity so that you're not just sitting at a blank whiteboard or a blank google doc and hoping
Growth Experts with Dennis Brown
Why You Need Start Doing Video with Cheryl Tan
"Why don't you unpack. This no fell video formula. Because i think this is really going to draw the picture for people. I think this is going to put it a little bit more concrete structure for them. So as i mentioned earlier i have been in front of the camera for many many years. I was a long time tv journalist. I've made all of my mistakes. Live in front of a lot of people and when i started working with business owners when i started my company. I realized that the things that i did for. Tv for the news for my job. It was the system. I just didn't put it into words. Just i didn't have to. I was under a deadline. I had multiple deadlines a day and so focused on any of those pieces. I wouldn't get my job done. So i had to create this system to help explain to business owners. I was working with the path to creating video so zero video is to me a five step process and all laid out right here is five peaks. It's prepare position process publish and promote and again when i was in the newsroom when i was working under deadline i did all of these things. Just did them all at the same time and i did not wittingly. Didn't like think about it. I just did it. But then since then i've had to really break it down to help people who are not used to a deadline. Who are not used to being in front of the camera to really see how to make this work for them. So the one thing. I want to say before i kind of go through my five. Ps is that being on camera is comfortable uncomfortable for everybody for most everybody. Most people i work with. They don't feel comfortable. They don't like the sound of their voice. They don't like the way their hair looks right. Now i don't love the way my hair looks but you just push through knowing that the information that you're sharing the value you're giving is more important than anything else and the first step of my no fill video formula is to prepare. Unfortunately being on video needs a little bit more equipment than like logging or even podcasting. You kind of need a camera so most of the time a camera that you have that you're using to text with to check your stocks with is good enough. The smartphone that you have in your hand will have a camera that is good enough and preparing is just that preparing that preparing and making sure you have a camera preparing your audio to make sure that you're in a quiet place if you don't have an external microphone and then also making sure that people can see you so i do have a light on me right now but if you don't sitting by a window and making sure you're facing the window so that the light is shining on you is really enough. There doesn't need to be a huge monetary outlay. If that's where you want to start which is using what you have right now. And i know a lotta people kind of get stuck in the prepare mode. I know it. Because i hear all the questions. Oh you know. Should i get this camera. Should i get that an icee. Let's wait until we figure out how you're going to use video in your business and if you continue with it sure get the next level. Dsl our share. A picture with me. Because i love to stay ahead. I love a good camera just like anybody else but until you get to that point. Let's start with what you have. And then the next part is the next part that dumps people is the positioning that you have in your space. What are you going to say on camera. How are you going to connect with people who want to hear what you have to say and so positioning is really just figuring out who want to talk to on camera and giving them content. That will help them create value in their day so that could look very different for many different people when i do videos from youtube channel. I know that people are asking me questions about equipment. They're asked me questions about scripts and they're asked me questions about backgrounds and things like that so my videos are focused on giving them those answers. So i have a script template that i share. I have all kinds of equipment guide that people can download for free and if you look at your content in that way you can do the same thing for your audience. It's really funny. You know. I'm glad you brought that up. It's funny because i have. I think i have over one hundred videos on my youtube channel. And i would bet that eighty percent of them. The topics of eighty percent of them were questions. The people had asked me either. They asked me over social or by email or maybe it was in another video alive. I was doing. They had asked this question in the comments. But i take a lot of my content. The topics from questions people are asking me because after all i'm here to serve them. It's not about what's interesting to me. It's about what they wanna know. So i love that as a tip. I think that's a simple easy tip on how to start creating ideas of what you're going to talk about. I love this tip to is more more so in the last few months i've been on a lot of virtual call like summits and webinars with organizations with a lot of people who are on the call and they ask you a bunch of questions and so i'll take the questions that come in through zoom and i'll just save them a click save on the chat and take those questions and turn them into videos knowing that if one person is asking that question most likely someone else is asking it somewhere that i can figure out. Seo wise how to put that on youtube. But then i also have a piece of video that answers the question that i know that at least one person has so i can even send that video to that one person but it's not so much that we don't have content in her head or that we even have trouble organizing it is sometimes. We just don't know where to get started and to me. That's a great start. If people already asking you questions save it. Save it somewhere safe so you can refer to it over and over again. Just keep a running list. I actually have google. Doc and i actually have a note in my iphone. Wear whenever a topic comes up whenever a question comes up. I always just keep rolling index of topics and i usually put them in kind of title format. And then i use that as kind of the framework of what i'm going to create the content about whether it be a podcast episode or a video or blockbuster. Whatever it's just a habit that i've developed over the years so i think that's a great idea. I love that and my problem. Unfortunately i have a lot of ideas and a lot of different places. I put them in. So don't do that. Note to self right. Do not do that. If you're going to have a google. Doc have one not like five where things are difficult to find. And that's the other thing is sort of creating for yourself. A process that you will follow. I was just talking to a client. Just a bit ago and i said to her. What if you started a weekly facebook live to your audience. They ask you questions all the time they ask you all the time. All kinds of questions you have answers to that for them relate and you have answers for them that are related to your business. Maybe add some sort of product is out of stock. Or you're getting a new shipment of this or your hours changing. Why don't we have a weekly update like wednesdays at ten. Am that you can share all of the updates for the week and your audience knows to check in on that every single week at the same time and if they're not there live they can catch the replay. What i find is that me saying that is one thing but actually having them feel comfortable enough to do that is another so we just wanna give one tip dennis and you know. I know you probably didn't have to do this in the very beginning. But some people don't necessarily feel comfortable talking on camera so what you could do is just turn on your camera like turn on your phone. Swipe up put the camera on selfie mode and start recording yourself every morning after you get up. Maybe after you've had some coffee record yourself giving like a one minute tip of the day. It won't go anywhere it won't unless you wanted to won't go anywhere. Just have it on your phone and try that for seven days and then take a look at them. See how you feel about them after. You've recorded them. What you'll probably see is it wasn't so bad and then you're kind of building that muscle memory. You're like oh. I can do this. I can record this on my phone. I can share this tip. I can share that tip and it can be succinct. It can be valuable and once it's on my phone. I can share it.
Google restores services for majority of users after global outage
"Are in the spotlight this morning after multiple google services g mail youtube. Google drive. Stadia suffered a massive outage for reasons unknown. At this point. Google issued a statement saying service has already been restored for some users and we expect a resolution for all users in the near future. Please note this. Timeframe is an estimate and may change. Where do you want to start with. The is tanking there a couple of different directions. We can go but my reaction to this was different than sort of the normal. You know when we come out and we see as we've talked about in the past home depot has bend has announced that their that they were hacked and as many as forty million credit cards could have been exposed. Well i mean. We're i want to start with this. I i want to flip the script here. A little bit chris. Because i mean as we were talking Pre pre show here in our in our production discussion here earlier today. You you you seem to have a little bit of a take on this and you wouldn't really elaborate so if you remember the office. Well well well how the turntables have. Let's turn those tables and let me interview you friend. What was what is. What is your take on this. Because i really. I really wasn't interested here. That so i told you i had a weird reaction to this. My reaction was almost one of sympathy. It was not alarm. And i'm not an alphabet shareholder. It was not similar to the reaction. I had when in the past. We've talked about home depot or target or any of these major retailers announcing. Hey forty million credit cards had their data exposed and we. You just like boy. That's a little bit of rub my gut reaction when i first saw this news was almost like google. Was the coffee shop at the end of my block at that. I've been going to for twenty years. It's like a little local shop. And i know the guy who owned it and he had a break in my reaction was oh i hope they're okay all right. Which is. I don't know what that says about me. I think it may say something about me. But i think it also says something about the way that i can't be alone in this regard. I think it says something about the way that a lot of us think about google. It is an invaluable service for which we do not pay. We don't pay a dime to use google or youtube or google drive. You know all these all these schools across the country that use google docs to share information particularly as we're doing remote learning so my gut reaction was this weird mix of of sympathy. It wasn't alarm. And maybe it should be alarmed because this is. I would argue one of the five most important companies in america. Yeah i mean. I think i probably put it even. I think i'd probably put it in the top three. Even we could argue that till the cows come home. I guess but. I think that you're right in observation. It is such a valuable collection of services that they offer that we pay nothing for and of course we've been having this conversation all year regarding privacy and in really the product and they're kind of exploiting our data and yada yada yada so we as consumers we make that trade off right we choose to make that trade off and in google is not the only service we do. That i mean you've got social media Writ large said that trade off has made every day. But i do think. I think you're right if you look at something like twitter and facebook crashing. I mean i know that social media is central to a lot of folks lives. And and that's fine. I guess whatever but twitter and facebook crashing is not the same thing as google or amazon or microsoft crashing. Those google amazon and microsoft are far more important to what's going on not only really domestically here but globally. I would argue in. Google is it. It's just one of most valuable resources. We have as investors consumers as students. And so i think this This this to me. It's a good reminder of the risks of placing all of your eggs in one basket so to speak if you are a workplace or if you are a school and you're relying on on something like google in that all of a sudden that that rug is just yanked out from under. You doesn't matter how long it is. You feel it even if it's for five minutes. You're like whoa. What just happened here because it really does ding productivity. And it's difficult to say exactly. What happened here. I mean these things just happen it makes me think of the word redundancy you you see with a lot of these a lot of these tech companies today particularly the big ones in like amazon and microsoft alphabet where they talk about re redundancy where you have essentially a fail safe right so if something goes wrong they can fall back on something which which keeps keeps the world from from coming to an end so to speak. It makes me wonder and i'm not. I'm not a code. Or i mean this is just something i thought about but it makes me wonder that As these systems advance as the tech gets better it feels like to me that it would become oftentimes. They become more intricate. If developers in coders aren't careful in. I guess the analogy i was. I was coming up with this morning. It could be something akin to our tax code here. Domestically in that instead of instead of making it more streamlined inefficient. And making it work better if you keep on adding things to it without really accounting for everything that went into building in the first place. It just becomes more complicated. It becomes more complicated to unwind. It becomes more difficult to fully figure out in in you could ultimately run into situations where failure becomes a bit more of a frequent occasion. I or event. I just don't know but but either way it's yet to your point. It's always it's something you feel no doubt it also interesting to me

Gmail, YouTube, Google Docs, and other Google services hit by massive outage
"Out across a number of Google services was apparent. The short lived. It started about 6 45 this morning user said they weren't able to access Web sites like YouTube, Gmail and Google docks. While it appears the issue has now been resolved, no word from Google on what caused the problem, we'll bring you more information as soon as we get it, Hackers have
Google Photos now charges, so what to do?
"Dot com slash talking. You may have heard many people ranting this week about google which chains its plans for google photos for five years. Google has told us. Hey upload everything for free and the will not charge you well now that they've got four trillion of our photos. They change their mind on that in june. It's going to start charging a minimum of the dollar ninety nine per month. Probably a lot more for folks to be able to upload and access their photos on google photos. i'm mad. I assume you are too. And i'm not gonna use google photos anymore. I'm done the question for many people is so what now. Well let's run through the options. Amazon photos is probably the next best. Step anybody paying one hundred and nine hundred dollars. Yearly for prime membership to get the faster shipping and entertainment also get free unlimited photo storage now. Amazon photos is not as easy to use as google photos. It's not as easy to use. His icloud for prime is a good place to go. My recommendation though is created albums. So that you'll be able to find the photos. Don't just throw everything up there. Apple icloud over. A billion of us have iphones. And we're taking zillions of pictures and we're getting next from apple all the time saying that we've run out of room They can do something about that but they don't want to because they want to sell you this online storage program which starts at only a dollar fifty gigs. Which is really tiny. Three dollars for two hundred gigs or ten dollars. Monthly for two terabytes. I've got forty terabytes on my desk. So that shows you where i'm at. I don't know about you. But i do not like getting nag messages from apple. So i'm not an icloud. Fan dropbox very simple. They're not they're not trying to sell you advertising. They're not trying to sell you other products very simply ten dollars a month for two terabytes which is great microsoft microsoft. Three sixty five seventy dollars a year for one terabyte which is not enough but you also get access online access to word excel outlook and powerpoint back to google. Here's how much. Google charging ten dollars a month for two terabytes or fifty dollars monthly for ten terabytes. And don't forget that your storage also includes g mail. Google docs google drive all of it. I believe that my g mail is forty gigabytes. And i don't have the years to be able to sit there and start deleting like a madman. So i pay and i'm not happy. The best deal in town. Best deal in. Town is smug and flicker smug mangas aimed at pros and photographers. Who are really into it. And flicker is for the general. Crowd flicker is sixty dollars a year. Unlimited photo storage. Smug mug starts at fifty five dollars yearly unlimited photo storage. So again apple is and twenty dollars. A year for two terabytes smug magas fifty five dollars a year with unlimited photo storage. Does the best deal in town. They need to do a better job of letting people know about this. Now if you don't wanna do online storage there's always hard drives. That's good and bad. You get a lot more room on a on a traditional spinning disc car drive but they will eventually fail. You can pick up an. At drive for about one hundred fifty dollars

The Google Photos Free-For-All Is Over
"So the free ride is over. Google has announced it will end its unlimited photos storage on june first of next year thereafter imposing a new fifteen gigabyte cap before they ask you to pay up for more storage but before you freak out photos and documents uploaded before that date june first of twenty twenty one will not count against the cap quoting the verge. All photos and documents uploaded before june. I will not count against that. Fifteen gigabyte cap. So you have plenty of time to decide whether to continue using google photos or switching to another cloud storage provider for your photos. Only photos uploaded after june. I will begin counting against the cap who already counts original quality photo uploads against a storage capping google photos however taking away unlimited backup for high quality photos and video which are automatically compressed for more efficient storage also takes away one of these services biggest selling points. It was the photo service where you just didn't have to worry about how much storage you had as a side note pixel owners will still be able to upload high quality not original photos for free after june first without those images counting against their cap. It's not as good as the pixels original deal of getting unlimited original quality. But it's a small bonus for the few people who buy google devices. Google points out that it offers more free storage than others you get fifteen gigabytes instead of the poultry five gigabytes that apple's icloud gives you and it also claims that eighty percent of google photos users won't hit that fifteen gigabyte cap for at least three years and quote by the way even though this photo thing is getting all the headlines. It's also worth noting that this is a sort of new storage policy for google across the board quoting manageable going forward. Google says that. If you don't check in on your google drive files every now and then. It may delete them. Google frames this change as a way to tidy up abandoned digital detritus. Perhaps leftover from long forgotten accounts. Which may be sure or alternatively it may be that a google user simply stored some valuable files away for a while like when might with physical documents and a fireproof safe and simply hasn't peaked at them in a few years quote. We're introducing new policies for consumer accounts. That are either inactive or over their storage across g mail. Drive including google docs sheets slides drawings forums and chambord files and or photos to better align with common practices across the industry. Explains google a blog post announcing the change your inactive in one or more of these services for two years twenty four months who will delete the content in the products in which you're inactive and quote in other words. School at present has no plans to. Just start deleting your stuff. Willy nilly however it's letting you know that. Come june. i twenty twenty one. The clock is ticking and quote but back to the free for all for photos ending. That's what's gotten everyone all riled up overnight which makes sense because this sort of touches all of our buttons when it comes to google right something. Something never rely on. Google services to be consistent forever or to even exist for more than half a decade. Google photos has been free for almost exactly five years by the way but also this strikes to the heart of the whole antitrust argument with which google and other big tech companies are being tarred quoting casey newton. Google earned eleven. Point two billion dollars in profits last quarter and uses all your uploaded photos to train its machine learning algorithms which offers it other enormous competitive benefits also seems notable that free. Google photo storage helped to drive tons of startups out of this market. Ever picks loom ever picture life. Now that they're gone. And google is tired of losing money on photos the revenue switch flips and quote and quoting from a widely read piece by willa ramos in one zero quote. It's a galling bayton switch and an object lesson anticompetitive behaviour by a big tech firm. The unlimited free storage offer was arguably. Google photos is top selling point one that few. If any competing providers could match the company was likely willing to lose money on its service in exchange for the photos value in training. It's ai systems and for the value of keeping users in its broader software ecosystem. What was once a hotly competitive and innovative space now largely controlled by google and a few other giants such as apple and this points to another set of losers albeit nebulous. One everyone who might have benefited from the new ideas and fresh features that were never developed because startups didn't stand a chance against google. It would be easy to reach for a sardonic. Don't be evil reference here. But what google is doing and why it matters isn't best understood in moral terms at every step it was just doing what successful companies do. It offered a great product for free because it could afford to it. Crushed competitors largely by virtue of being the best option on the market. And now it's raising prices because the free storage offer has served its purpose instead. This move is best understood from the standpoint of competition and antitrust it's google's vast size and scope the way it's products in different markets compliment and cross subsidize each other that gave it unmatchable advantages over smaller rivals. In retrospect the free storage offer looks a lot like predatory pricing whether that was google's intent or not but the bigger picture is that google like other dominant platforms. Has its hand in. So many different mutually reinforcing lines of business that it will always be incentivized to leverage them. In anti-competitive ways from certain standpoint the standpoint of maximizing profit and shareholder value. It would be foolish not to end quote. But i will give you this interesting counterpoint. From dare obasanjo who actually engage directly with will on twitter about his piece quote. This is why break. Big tech is sloganeering without a coherent policy. What break-up action would be recommended in. This instance should google photos be spun out of google. Meaning they'd have to charge for it from the jump or that. Google build new free products anymore. The article title is literally that this case is proof and antitrust remedy is needed. I'm simply asking how so google photos as a lost leader. These are common business practices. Mcdonald's profit comes from soda. Not burger's what antitrust regulation would be useful here. Lots of commentary on antitrust and big tech is really. I mad at this company and want them to be punished. There is no government intervention that will cause a for profit company to give you free unlimited storage forever and quote

To Take on Slack, Google is Rebranding -- Again
"The pandemic has taught us many things how to coordinate business attire with sweatpants, for example, also how you can stay inside all day and still feel exhausted. For companies one of the biggest lessons is how much more productive many employees can be when they work remotely. In fact, a recent study published in the Harvard Business Review, found that knowledge workers are more productive and generally feel better about their work when doing it from home, it's the attention of these workers that Google is trying to get by rebranding it suite of productivity and remote collaboration tools. Google workspace formerly called G. SUITE INCORPORATES G, mail calendar, drive Docs, and other Google apps into a single interface. It's got a new look and a handful of new features that are supposed to. Save Time. That's the upside on the downside. Unlimited storage will cost you about eight bucks a month more than with G. Suite. The pandemic shifted such collaboration platforms from some what irritating office requirements to essential communication tools. So it makes sense for Google to coordinate all of these tools in one space to compete with productivity platforms like slack and Microsoft, teams but there's nothing truly earth shattering about the new offering and unfortunately everyone including Google keeps messing up the new name Fast Company reported that in two separate workspace related blog posts published earlier this month Google called its own new brand work place. Meanwhile Google is playing catch up with slack, which has more than twelve million active daily users and enterprise customers include the majority of fortune one hundred companies including starbucks, Oracle and target at the company's annual conference slack announced it was adding more security features like the ability to send secure slack messages to people outside your company. The verge reports that slack will also introduce instagram likes stories and push to talk audio by the end of the year. The goal is to cut down on constant video calls and inefficient text conversations by giving users communication tools they already use a quick story post can update the team and replace that annoying fifteen minute morning huddle. Plus slack already has so many integrations that make it more than a messaging platform including integration with Google workspace. But all of those bells and whistles might not matter as protocol reported. This month platforms like slack have been pouring resources into chat functionality, which is the heart of collaboration platforms but workspaces tools are already integrated into companies in other ways. G Mail is the world's biggest email mail provider and most companies already use Google docs, sheets and slides. In fact, Google now has more than two billion users who rely on at least one of those apps. So it has some home field advantage to slack may have an advantage in cool features for now. But Google has one thing that's hard to innovate sheer mass and when a player that big comes to play on your feel you better be ready with your.

Of the biggest mistakes, many new entrepreneurs make. is they make themselves and others on their team indispensable. This is not a good practice, and this is not how successful businesses work if you or anybody else on the team were to take day or week or month off, this should be able to know how to do any particular task in the business. This is why you should be writing a user manual for your business that way at anytime anybody. On, your team can tap into this resource to implement any task needed. This also adds incredible value to your actual business. If somebody wanted to buy your business one day everything's documented and ready for handover in today's lesson, you'll learn how to create this business manual how to make sure everybody on your team contributes to its you're not doing all the work. So let's get into it. Let's get down to business. This message is brought to you by windows and HP everyone has a different way to work whether it's typing on a computer, sketching out notes with a pen or accessing all your stuff on your phone with windows HP. You'll have all the tools you need to work the way you want. So whatever you do, make it you with windows and HP. See how at windows dot com slash HP. Creating a minimal welfare business is a work in progress as something that you're going to do today tomorrow every single day and when I say, you stopped talking about you specifically the founder but the people in your business job is to build the culture and the practice and that way everybody every individual is contributing every day. Now, this manual is going to be a set of what I call standard operating procedures. So peace and this is. Basically. The play by play the step-by-step of amy task that anybody does in Your Business. So save for example, you hire a social media marketer and they're on your team and they're posting social media posts on all the different platforms you're on facebook instagram twitter you name, you've hired them they're doing the job, and that's great. But part of their job needs to be to document the tasks they are doing the standard operating procedures, for example when. They post to facebook what are the steps they need to take. That should be documented in a document like step one, right the copy for the post step to at any relative links step three, right the hashtags set for post this information on facebook or on a social media APP like buffer or Edgar you get the point do you need to centralize all this information in your business and allow everyone on your team to be able? To contribute to the soap's they create also has to be easy to search somebody can find a procedure easily. So there are two resources I. Recommend Number One, you can go simple and just go with Google Docs Google Docs makes it easy for you to search for documents and a new recipe could be a new document. You can create for structures to allow people to organize the soap's per department. Another great tool I would recommend is notion. To show is a tool we started using, and it's actually quite easy to use. It's super clean. It's super easy and it's perfect for standard operating procedures and building your business manual. Now, your as the leader as the manager is to make this a practice. So anytime, you're giving a task to any teammate. Anything new they're doing you're gonNA tell them do the test, but also to create the soap for it. Now, what you're gonNA find that because they're creating an S. O. P., they're going to be a lot more efficient. They're going to be a lot more detail oriented with creating that task or completing that task. Now, this may sound like a very simple thing like, hey, just tell them do tasks and then create the sap, but it's really important for to remember to do this with every task especially at the beginning. Of A new hire, we have a set of s O p.'s that we've gathered just for new hires and it's part of our on boarding procedure. In every time, we get a new hire we ask them. Is there some procedure that was not now for you and they say, yes, there were a couple things that I had to figure out ask some questions, and in that moment we tell the new hire hey, can you create a standard operating procedure for those tasks that we didn't have and this beefs up your library? What this also does is it allows you in the managers in your team understand exactly what everybody is doing and you can value each team members work when you look at the library of standing operating procedures in each department each role you realize, wow, this person dealing with a lot of different tasks on a regular basis. Look at all these SOB's. Now you WANNA create a standing operating procedure at your manual, not only for tasks, but four processes and one of the porn processes that you need to document is decision making. For example, in customer support, we have a standing operating procedure on helping customers with difficult questions, troubleshooting issues, and we have basically a flow chart step by step guide on how to make a decision on what the customer needs a set a question, a set of steps, a set of if this then this. So the support agent understands how you make a decision, the process to find out what to

4 Simple Tips To Improve Your New Hire On-Boarding
"Whether! You have a team of one which is just you and you're making your first hire war? You're hiring your fiftieth employee. Having a system in place allows you to scale the hiring process so that when somebody joins your team, there are part of your team in the ramped up. The understand exactly what they have to do had to do it. WHO TO ASK FOR HELP WITH ZERO CONFUSION? This is going to allow you to get the most out of your hires to save you money to keep turnover down and of course produce. Produce better results for your business, so let's get started with tip number one and this one is pretty fun and simple, and it's just called a welcome pack. You want to set up your new hire for success. You want to make sure you give them something to give them a good impression, a big part of a new Harpoon will is that few welcome. They feel motivated, and it just kind of reconfirms their decision to say yes to working for Your Business and a welcome back is very simple, one of the things that. That we did in our welcome back is put together a welcome video, which is a montage of welcomes from our team members, and this is simple. You can easily do this. You just ask your current team members. Even if there's just you to shoot a quick ten second welcome as literally just saying Hey, I'm so and so I do this in the company. Welcome to the teams. Great to have you and we've put together a montage so that when a new hire gets hired, we can send him an email with a welcome. Welcome video from the whole team and it makes them feel like. Wow, this is awesome. Get to me all these people soon and I'm going to be part of this awesome team. The second thing you could do is send them some Swag Cinema Company t-shirt accompany Mug something physical in the mail, which is really really fun. One another tip that I learned from Wistaria, which is a really great idea is to send them. A Gift Card can be fifty dollars one hundred dollars. Whatever it is, you can send them a gift card. To have dinner on you to celebrate their new job with their family, this is so memorable for a new hire that they will feel so lucky to be part of Your Business, so a welcome pack is a great way to get them started on the right foot. They're like hey. Awesome I got the swagger. Got This cool gift I got this welcome video. This place is great tip number two a company ham book now. A lot of people do not write accompany handbook because they really feel like. Hey, this is a lot of work. Work it's GonNa take me forever to put it together. And that holds them back from actually having a handbook while a couple of years ago I got to know the founder of Git lab at a conference Dmitri was speaking on stage. Any shared a with the crowd. Hey, we have something called a team Hamburg. One of the first things he said is that they'll call a company him. Call a-team handbook, because this can be edited and revised by the team. It's a working document. Don't see it as something that's set in stone. And I love this idea because this allows you just to get started and to have something in place sooner than later. Even if you're handbooks only four five pages long, that's okay it can grow. It can be edited. You can add to it later on, and our handbook is literally a handbook written in Google docs and people with a woman or engine email will have access to that dock and they can edit it. They can add comments. And then we can improve that as a team, but putting together a team ham book is Super Helpful for new heart is when they first joined. They WanNa know about some simple things like how was a company founded You know who does. What like an organizational char? How do I request leave? What about If I need to call in sick? Who Do I speak to WHO's my own media supervisor? Whence payday who to speak to you if there's. There's an issue with my pay things like that. This is more like hr, and like a guidebook of how to really do well. We also have things in our handbook talking about our company culture about what's acceptable. What's not acceptable in our team? As well as some advice on how to succeed especially in our team, because we run a remote company and everybody's working from home and we get some advice when it comes to that as well so putting. Putting together, a handbook is a great investment again. Just get started with. It caught a team handbook. Make it clear to everybody. This is a collaborative effort. And when new hires join, they have something to read before they start their first day, so we send the handbook when they probably give notice to their other job, and they have a chance to review before their first day of work speaking of first day that leads me to tip number three. Three one of the best things that we've done is that when somebody joins us, we give them a full week of training, and this is outlined to them on outline the first week, so they understand that this is what they're gonNa do every single day. It's very comforting for a new hire to have a plan to see what's going to happen the first few days as they get to know people there timid, they're shy. They're worried about doing well. So by giving them a day to day plan for the first week allows them to focus on getting to know their colleagues do a good job and just feel comfortable in this new company we literally just create Trello Board for each department for new hires and in that trial board They have tasks to do every single day for the first week. Week it could be an orientation. Meeting could be some training. They have to do to learn about the product or service. If there know an engineer had set up their local environment so they can be able to start developing the point of this first week. Orientation is just to give them a clear cut plan. Okay, because later on, they're going to be. Be Autonomous they're going to be working on projects. You know we have very Thomas teams because we are a remote team in this is the way we work. Everybody has ownership over what they have to do. But that first week needs to be as prescriptive as possible just so they feel. They have some structure once they pass their first week. They're kind of like. Like comfortable now, and they can take on projects and manage their own time. and you kind of got out of the way the understand the company the values what they have to do, which means if the show up for setting up their counter setting up, you know their environment all that kind of stuff
Apple's new iPad Pro isn't quite ready to replace your laptop
"First topic is one. I'm eager to get to and it's largely because it's not about the corona virus we have Scott on shares impressions of the new IPAD. Pro Scott Ready. Check your macbook out. Police say yes. No I wish this is. This is an interesting Review Process so obviously working from home and So I thought about this as we left her offices a couple of weeks ago in in you know some people were like well what you still have a laptop anyhow but the point is everyone suddenly finding that their equipment is in limited supply and it new be really great to just you know. I keep thinking the ipad which allowed people have ipads lying around. And you think well. Why can't this be a full-fledged computer and it's it's hampered largely by apple's software you know at this point twenty eighteen review the IPAD. Bro and the hardware was great. But it was really about the like. How open was it? How multitasking was it so track pad? I went back and I looked in. I wanted to track in twenty twelve. So this is literally been eight years going The longest request ever and it felt overdoing. It's finally here so I will. That's my long way of saying the best thing about the new IPAD. Pro is something. That's not part of just the IPAD pro The track pad support is really helpful. It's not perfect. Though so right now I paired imagine track pad with it it should work with Bluetooth mice and other types of track pads like basically you can try plugging something at home to an ipad with a thirteen. Point four update. That's out and see where you're mileages. Which is really cool. That's Kinda where everyone's at it allows you to use it more like a computer like I could stand up the IPAD in control stuff. Why does that matter for editing? So for me? It's cutting and pasting getting in that workflow. It's really annoying on an ipad. But you you wrote that review on your ipad right. I did although I didn't. I tried my best to get it all into the system. And it's in at some point. I was like for speed. I gotta get back to the laptop. So the editing works but also part of it is that apple's APPs and the whole happy consistent had not been updated for Apple Apple's core work apps like Pages still need to flip the switch Or they may have just gotten the updates at the track but they should be happening really soon to make that Selecting of tax work better. I've found that it was really wonky and didn't work like a laptop all the time things like Google Docs. You'll have to wait for the rest of the OS. There's two and three finger touch and other stuff. You probably are discovering this so it's a lot better than the irs thirteen Thing that the the hidden mouse support before which was not great. That is my main thought on the IPAD PRO. The rest of it is a really minor update and it reminded me so much of the twenty eighteen pro. If you twenty eighteen pro you really fine. The speed gains were so minimal. Were non-existent in a Geek bench. Five Apple says it's more graphics gains and thermal envelope so it's like running at maximum thermal of that is the thermal really. Know what it really means. It means using the I go for like for like superpower stuff and running it all the time. The new one may run better but you know. That's a specific use case the the whole now the AR thing because I've I'm Mr Aarp. Yeah let the camera because that is the other big superficial muscle but the material change. It's got the kind of square bump thing that the iphone eleven has right. Yes but it's also different so it looks like the iphone eleven bump it's pretty significantly different. I has two cameras like the iphone. Eleven proud wide-angle and ultra wide twelve may pixel and ten megapixel so the camera quality is not who is good but it's close so talk about a are finally. Scott you cover a are what your thought is a light art sensor. This is interesting because it's a five meter. Just sorry just to be. Let's speculate on. What is the light our sensor for readers to ensure Sony so what this basically does is it is it sends out. Ping's to sense and map the depth of a space read the Three D. Environment. Add Up to five meters. So this tech. If you've been following this type of stuff has been around Google Tango. Their phones could could scan the environment. Heck go all the way. Back to the connect The connect Microsoft Canaria. Could scan that tag. Got Shrunken Down into the Hall Lens. Into Apple's face. Id Camera Lighters different than that. It's in cars but it's kind of a similar idea and that it's pinging longer range to get a more accurate. So what's the point will like any. Ar headset is GonNa do that. Three Mesh Mapping of the environment to know where things are in place things so not just like floors walls like furniture. Your cat people walking by like if it has a live update it could like continued update and do that but it's power hungry so that is a very big step for apple in their ar pursuits. And that's the tech. I would expect to see in the IPHONE and eventually in glasses and other things like. They're they're there for them. It's interesting for us. You know it's all about how good the APPS are right now. There are no APPS to test with it so I had almost no real formative opinion on this because it's all attention claims apple's core APPs do a little bit like the you can pop up in what's called air quickview you could play around and put a little item down to notice that now. It will jump on a pile of books. I put in the video or like on a chair which you couldn't do before answer. It's basically like more bay storage one twenty eight versus sixty four but it's kind of the same proposition and I didn't get to use the most interesting thing. Which is that magic keyboard that new keyboard case? Oh yeah yeah coming out in. May but it's like three hundred three hundred fifty dollars. It's like all of this. Whoa yeah it's it's really yeah reader. Fifty Bucks Yeah. It's the cost of a basic like an ipad mini much because it's the cost of a basic ipad or cost of a chromebook cost of switch. You know Wow yeah wow yeah and so like right now with this economy and everyone if you got if you got the money you hey congratulations but for a lot of other people. That's not a consideration so I'm curious but it's that's it's already a luxury thing and it's a luxury in top of a luxury. I would just say my advice for folks Considering that keyboard save your mind for toilet paper expensive in a little while saving for the teepee
Scholars Strategy Network's No Jargon
From The Tea Party to The Resistance
"Imagine it's early. Two thousand nine. Barack Obama has just been sworn in as the first african-american president in the history of the United States after momentous election soon resistance arises. The Tea Party comes into being all over the United States. In many places people come out to say they don't like what's going on and they wanted to stop now fast forward another eight years too early. Two Thousand Seventeen President. Donald trump has just been elected and the same thing happens people all over the come out to say they don't like what's going on and they wanted to stop so the tea party and the Democratic Resistance. Are they similar? Are they different? What can we learn by looking at the two of them together? Hi I'm Avi Green. And this is the scholar strategy networks no jargon each week we discussed an American policy problem with one of the nation's top researchers without jargon in this episode. I spoke to Lagos. She is a doctoral student. Sociology at Harvard University and it contributed to the book a- bending American politics which just came out edited by Caroline Turbo and are very unbeatable. And here's our conversation. Thanks so much for coming under jargon. Thanks for having me so we could. You've set the stage by telling us some something about the tea party. No what what did professors got bull. I think. One of your other colleagues Vanessa Williamson. Learn about the tea party. You can give us that background that that would be great. Yes so professor. Scotch and Vanessa Williamson have published a lot of really interesting work on the birth of the Tea Party. And what they've done since they started in two thousand nine so after. President Obama was elected there. Was this backlash and it started off really small and small in the way that it was something people were talking about. They weren't excited for the politics of of Obama they weren't excited particularly for the economic policies. That would come with a stimulus which was referred to as Porculus and so a commentator on Fox News Rick Santelli told supporters and people who are listening. Let's go out let's protest. Let's throw t in the river. Which really translated to? Let's make our own uprising against what we think are really bad. Economic Policies so the tea party was a movement of people acting at the local level and they did this by making friends at protests between Tax Day April two thousand nine to the march on Washington in September of that. Same year organizing their friends reaching out to people on meet up on this before facebook. I really popular we kind of have to remember. This was actually ten years ago now. And the idea truly became something of we are trying to make a movement out of educating people who are interested and saying no to Obama's politics and as educational movement was wasn't is really spectacularly unique because it involved local groups engaging with one another so sharing information where he together to host lectures workshops but also working with national level funders and think tanks and candidates support groups that would be their packs that would be the candidates themselves and then also the RNC and what happened in two thousand nine is Americans for prosperity Civitas. The John Locke Foundation the coke brothers. They all got together whether in public or privately and we're starting to fund these groups not just through grants to do things or signs but their education. We want to support certain economic and voter policies in particular so came down to this idea that we're going to give education opportunities to these local groups e solid partnerships between the John Locke Foundation between Civitas. And this idea of saying let's go on educate people on the constitution. Let's talk about how local politics works and so these groups working in tandem with national organizations and there was a relationship there that started to push the party to the right large part the Republican party largely. Because there's no compromise so the tea party wasn't about finding a middle ground. It was like they took their suitcase. And they marched to the right and they haven't really stopped since and think tanks and these foundations went with them and at this time the Republican Party. Rnc were particularly hollowed out in a sense that there wasn't a lot of national and local support and there wasn't a lot of work between those two factions of the organization. So they kind of just had to go with the. Rnc could say we're a powerful group of tons of people who love the RNC who loved the Republican Party. Being what it currently is and we're GONNA fight for our status quo or are moderation or center right or there's a few people and they were basically quickly stampeded. Moseley by this this kind of insurgency on the right yes so jumps forward eight years to the flip side and before you tell us what. You found out about the resistance. Because I think you've found out a ton of things I love for you to tell me about what it was like to do this research like was this about like looking at big data sets and sitting in front of computers. Or did you get in a bus or a train or a car go someplace and if so where did you go? Yes so the thing that interests me most about the jumping forward as we have to remember that the tea party still exists so jumping forward as almost like getting on a train and we're all going in a direction of the future which is currently now the tea party produced all of this knowledge about how to engage congressmen and senators congresswoman. Anyone WHO's working in local national politics and so when it came time for the two thousand Sixteen Election Liberal Democrats were all just of course Hillary Clinton's going to win and didn't everyone was unbelievably stunned. Stunned sad I haven't seen the word devastated so often on social media and in the news before this moment and so you have. This question of people are wondering who voted for him. What's the direction America's going in? I'm devastated what's happening. And this is happening in local communities in rural areas and cities on college campuses and churches. There's this response that you see your friends on social media and this big idea of what we're looking for an we're trying to understand right like what happens after election of Donald Trump is. We automatically know. There's going to be something similar to the tea party solely because of this massive immediate response on facebook so there was a group. I don't know if anyone was a number. It was a secret group. It was called pantsuit nation. But I I'm just going to tell tell our listeners. I have to admit it I was not a member I was. It was an exciting experience. I think at the height of the group which was the day of the election. There's almost three million members and grew the idea that was you would share your excitement for a female president would wear your pants suit or your child aggressive dress up in a pantsuit to go to vote and once. Hillary Clinton lost this group went from being cheerleaders to being a support group and all of a sudden a member in this group. Teresa shook was like why don't we have a march on Washington and I'm going to jump ahead a little a pants. State Nation Actually took on nonprofit status. It was no longer able to be politically engaged in the same way so groups. This is where this whole local grassroots movement kind of picked up force. I WANNA fly there too. I think that's like a whole interesting story in itself you know. And we've had other researchers talked about the ways in which the land therapy and tax laws distort what people are able to do because activists say like. Oh I want to do war of this work and then the first thing people say. Let's get some grants so we can do it and it was like well. Let's be a five hundred eighty three and then you can't do politics the way that you were doing it before and it's a it's a very strange set of things that are happening. We talk about like it's a natural thing but it's all a manifestation of ways in which our our tax laws in our laws about regulating politics advocacy and. Who GETS TO DO IT? You know play out in real life. It's almost as if we walked into a vacuum where people want it to be able to tell stories of that experience of the support of a woman running for president her loss. And that's what happened with dancing nation but at the same time you had millions of people primarily women who were saying. I want to be more involved. I WANNA do more. How do I do it? And so there's this large push for March on Washington which became women's March which happened and two thousand seventeen and at the same time. So we're still kind of in December. You see something pop up online. It's the indivisible guide so who wrote it in and what is it and how did that play a role so visible guide was written by as relevent Leah Greenburg? Who are at this point in time have experienced as congressional staffers. Dc insiders so they understand what the tea party has been doing for the last eight years. So they post a Google doc and remember tea parties. You've been using meet up basic aged him out where eight years in the future. We've got new technology. The Google doc explodes wasn't side of it is a list of ways to beat. Donald Trump in the future based on what the tea party did. Just kind of completely agitate Obama's efforts for eight years
