They didn't have much success. There because florida state was a dumpster fire at that time But but doing what his dad did failure and how they kind of. Reinvented the offensive. Terms of going sideline to sideline and going full tempo. Like they're on the front edge of that obviously And then you've got berry autumn defensive coordinator former head coach missouri to had hard time i thought his missouri rebalancing you know. Do we want to be the kind of offense that runs one hundred plays because look look what that does to us defensively and i felt like arkansas got stuck in that a couple of times last year the the their game at missouri was a ninety eight point total. They lost fifty to forty eight. They have momentum they have opportunity they get texas coming to their place week to that as important as conference. Games are to arkansas. I don't know there's a more important game under schedule. All season especially with the old heads who have been around the program for for decades decades going back to the southwest conference because that is the team that they want to measure themselves against And i think. I think that's a winnable game. I think sam. I haven't done a deep dive on texas but we we know the the story lines the whip that right back though saga texas guy. This week i meant it is texas going to be good this. How good is texas gonna be. He said pan. We're going be great in three years. So what is texas gonna be this year. I don't know There the win totals in league have been climbing. Sec only scheduled last year but They were so much better. Defensively that i really feel like that will end up being their identity. There were fifth in the sec in defensive efficiency last year after being thirteenth fourteenth the two years prior. they've got really good young players in the secondary. I think the most underrated player in the sec. Jalen cav lon was true as a freshman safety last year. It's rare for a freshman to be impactful. But he's a quarterback that defense in many ways especially the back end they bring back productive. Linebackers grant morgan and bumper pool. Greg brooks at another secondary spotlight. That is a really good defensive team. And i wouldn't be surprised if they are able to flex some of that defensive superiority against texas week to the rest of the schedule. You gotta go to georgia. Ole miss is gonna try to throw for billion against you bill. You intercepted that quarterback six times last year You know you get a couple of really easy. Non-christian in rice and arkansas pine bluff georgia southern not as easy as those two but probably fairly easy form i think. Think that's a program on the upswing. Yeah i think they're gonna be right around that five or six win you said. There's some easy should win games. And then obviously some really tough games bama's on the schedule as well in tuscaloosa and that's at baton rouge as well. Those are back to back weeks by the way But you're right. I like that. They've come a long way kentucky. We can't you know can't exclude anyone here so kentucky real quick. What can we expect from from the wildcats. Well i was standing on the sideline last year to kentucky practice which was a rarity because i was typically doing games for my basement so it was nice to be on bluegrass but as i was talking to mark stoops towards the end of the season he said man. We've we've gotta find a way to modernize this offense Their offense was pitiful at times last year. They they have been at their best when he has had a defensive. He can lean on an offense in run the football and he's had a lot of success doing that but they weren't able to run. The football last year in their defense wasn't as good in. He saw his eyes were opened the fact that the rest of college football in the sec is specially had blown right by. They didn't have wide receivers..

That's just the fact is is in real estate for the power that it can provide to our live and in that sense we liked to help people set up their business so that it serves them it serves their live in their greater purpose. And the things that you're talking about is exactly right. Like is it your. Is it your job to two tie every single text message every single time. I'm not really sure. How about makes sense. And i'm not really sure how that serves greater purpose of trying to be the best at that. You can be the best house that you're trying to be great the life for your kids that you're trying to accomplish so we like to stay focused on keeping the main thing the main thing which is having a business that you instead of you having served at all i mean i think that's the number one issue we see with most of our clients. They don't have any. They don't have any time to do the things that they really want to do in their lives because they're answering the phone circle prostrated. They're running concer apex. I mean people tell me why can't trust somebody to put a package together like a really. You can't because the process that you go through eighty ninety percent of the same every single time nine percent science you know putting up with with a little bit of ours so someone else can't put together a package and then you review in scan it row quickly to make sure the best but it takes us forever to run cops. I mean it takes awhile. Even if you know the neighborhood you gotta go identify. The right property. sold them appropriate timeframe. So you can use that information in just the by you know the numbers on your listing appointments and the things you're trying to accomplish it's just so much high grant so people are literally making a choice every day whether they you this layer not. You're making a choice either. Spent time in that text message. Grinding transaction coordination grinding on the go. Or you're spending it with your family and picking your kids up from school and going to soccer. It is a direct trade off there is. There's not an inbetween there. You're making a choice. And in my opinion the most successful agents have figured out to to leverage their time where they spend their time in their highest best years and then the rest of the tasks that take to make these transactions are off their plate so then at the end of the day when they go home they can be dads spouses t-ball coaches. I literally just got off the phone with one of our agent client and she's coaching her dull daughters volleyball tape. And that's what she'd on this year and she absolutely loves it but she never could have done that. She could have jumped into that role. Had she not had the structured and work with teams like ours to get her time back so she can travel but he's volleyball games at goteborg ball tournaments and be a mom and and do all those fun things so for us. It's not an either. It is literally directly relates. You can either half time for the things that you hear or you're going to spend all your time grinding in this as in the there's not really and way as such a profound profound thought right we all try to get into the business to create freedom but none of us understand how to and that's one of the things i love about rocket station.

I could not agree more with every single thing that you said. I think that you know we do a really good job. Not to toot. Aren't horn helping. people understand. Marketing implement advertising strategies who have technology that for them We've we've truly mastered. I think the art of creating systems and processes around helping somebody generate new business when it comes to advertising and stuff like that but we we create more problems for people because typically we get people really busy and then they're like oh crap i gotta figure out how to handle business. I love being able to send people to rocket station to kind of take their business in their their brand. And all this extra things to the next level. And i appreciate you guys being great partners of ours. What is the best way for summited. Reach out and connect with you know.

"Mean, hey, So what's funny to me is it seems like there's gonna be a lot of starting quarterbacks available in the trade market. Because sound like to me. You could have Gerry Goff of you wanted him to Shawn Watson. Although the Texans are not saying anything, John watching is apparently one morning out of Houston. Yeah, Yeah, I would imagine San Donna would probably be out of the Jets. I'm not sure who they take number two. I don't know. Do you take Justin Fields number two. Or is that is that Do you trade down and take Zack Wilson? Do you or do you stick with sand? Oh, no. Well, I mean, you have a new government man, So it's not the coaches choice quarterback. True, Um If you're if you're sold on Donald, you trade back and try and fill some of us hold you back, which they have a lot of a lot so you could trade back and try and fill some holes may be getting the second round. Maybe send your one and you get to two twos, right? Um, but if you're not sold on Sam Donaldson, you have take Chesterfield is fields Were I come? Josh Fields, the baseball player. Is Justin Fields worthy of being in number two pick. I think, Justin Fields. I mean, it is this feel like you know the old Ryan leave Peyton Manning the old What was it? He Shuler? Trent Dilfer. Um, no, I don't think so. And I want to say I think I think one of my friends from back home is Listen. Yes, Ryan, you're all on Uh, Was canceled. I don't know. You're talking about quarterbacks. We You just said his name's to one number two behind Peyton Manning. Oh, leave. Yeah. His name's Ryan is I gotta stop right. Like what Do you talk that right? Ryan's like Ryan Leaf is better. I said no, Peyton Manning. So I won that one here in like, you know, it was amazing to me, and that's one thing on that. I'll never figure out about football is you could see the guy looks so amazing on Saturday because Ryan leave really look great with Washington State. There was no question about how good he looked and how bad you looked on Sundays. Well for me, I always okay. What type of what competition are you playing? And what are you doing against, but it The Pac 10 back then, was not bad. They weren't bad, but they were good is the SEC. They were not as good as SEC back then, because back then Tennessee was good. Georgia was later all Jane not gonna ring out, man, because, you know they were gonna get this Alabama fight if you bring him out again, But I just It's kind of like Gino Torretta winning the Heisman. No. You just had guys that Miami just threw the ball. It'll make caught it. Ken Dorsey winning the Heisman as well. Yeah, I mean, Don't think Zack Wilson is good is Justin Field? I don't believe so. I think Justin Fields is worth the world. The NFL is going with their quarterbacks. I think Justin Fields is the prototypical guy. By the way, do the Packers regret taking Jordan love marriages? You know? Is it a waste of my picket This? It's a waste of a pick. Unless you're going. He's gonna We're gonna keep him there for three years. But then in three years you've got to decide. Are we gonna franchise them? We're going to sign them long term way have no idea what he can do. Because here in J moving in exactly, Um, I I think Go on the air. I just think I think people a Rogers is the LeBron James of the NFL. And I say that meaning people don't realize how good and Rogers this well this. This is his first ever and if he championship game at home What That's not all his fault. No, I'm not blaming him. I'm just I'm just saying to me that that was an amazing set. My heart was like, really? Check out this one. He threw more touchdown passes this year than they punted the ball 48 cats cry. Think about that for a second. I want to say Josh Allen did the same thing in Buffalo is well, that is crazy, more touchdown pass, then you planet when he threw a pass. To Tavon Austin and completed it as the first passing his career toe a first round wide receiver pick. And it was Tavon Austin. Yes to this. Are you kidding me? That was the first one in his career that that is mind blowing. And it was Tavon Austin then does the quarterback make the receiver and that situation? Yes. Because I mean, look at the guys that have had whether it be bred far for Aaron Rodgers. The receivers. They've had that from Shannon Sharpe or sterling. Sure, I'm sorry. Yeah. Greg Brooks, Greg barks. Um Antonio Freeman. And, you know Freeman, um Who was the next landmark tremors of Titan, But there was another great guy in between that and Davante Adams. Well, that was that was, um And Rodgers. Greg Jennings. Great that you guys got here. Roger Donald driver. Those those guys are first round now sin. None of them are now he's throwing to think about who is strong, too. Alan Lazard. There's Lazard. Valdas scan Scaling and ST Brown are so bad then Aaron Rodgers basically walks it to them and puts it in their arm and they still drop it. That Tae von Austin? That's that that is, um and came out, wasn't no. That was the first time he was a first round pick on his third team. Now, exactly so that was it. I mean, just think of what he In his and his 14 year career 14 or 15 year career. Something like that. He's only if he's throwing in that long spread far was playing quarterback in Green Bay.

"In this episode, what to do when you get a job offer from a start-up head PC, we recently began a series of workshops for startup founders with this very topic. And so our audio is from this session and the sage advice from our panelists could apply. To any job, offer, not just ones from start-ups. Now, we shift gears and propose an idea for you to start up job Seeker. If you're going to listen to offers from start-ups, you should be evaluating these start-up companies. As if you were investing in them because by working on one of them wage, you're making a bet on them. So what kind of homework should you be doing on these companies? Here to tell us is Tom Vander, schaaf are Princeton Alum and general partner at Edison Partners a venture capital firm in New Jersey, Edison Partners mostly focuses on later-stage companies, but the concepts and evaluate a start-up are very similar valuing people making sure that there are literally going to a Justin you and inventor, you mean the payoff maintaining some time, but it's going to read you too much higher Heights over time and then, you know, you can look at it. Different things about the financial performance of of Colby's. Our goal is to invest in companies that have gotten to some Commercial Success. So we we measure that by Revenue by growth of the business year-over-year. These are things that are important wage. It will help establish leaves on Baseline, and power companies, performing, and how well past results, May not necessarily assure you of any future results. Kind of thing, you know, how you get a sense for what I could accomplish particularly with capital on the future and hopefully build your Equity that way. But I'm not saying don't count your strike price chickens until they're hatched. Granted invested, I always say context home is everything, so in evaluating a company from the job offers standpoint. Tom says, you are well, advised to look at the market around, it is an interesting aspect of the month. Maybe appeals room is the company currently or prospectively a leader in this market, or is it very commoditized? And having a difficult time, differentiating itself these are off as an investor are important. I think for your sake figured out the longevity of the opportunity that you have in front of you and is it a highly evolving Marketplace? Could add to the excitement off. Or could be a warning sign of the risks levels. As I mentioned growth and kind of traction. In in markets, those are easy things to measure, if, if the companies will share enough information, so you need to ask pretty proactive probing questions. They're not similar to the discussion around your employment. Letter most companies are going to be relatively secretive about their information with prospective employee that you're not going to tell you that they have. Number of customers or why amount of Revenue. The so you need to ask specific questions and more often than not, you'll get at least a directional sense of the size and scale of the opportunity. And then you need to sit down with your own parameters of what you think are valuable Grant, like it's can be exciting if you're getting a rental, right? But you have to be cognizant that raises level was very different than if you're going to go join Google well now but you you know join Google and 98. That's a different story, right? You can hear Tom's complete remarks in the full audio from the workshop. You will take us to the brake right here is one critical point though is mostly about the people wage, are these folks that you could Envision working with quite some time, are they going to afford you connections and Farah value to you over the course of your career? People like the great philosopher Barbara Joan Streisand said, people people who need people are the luckiest people in the world. I know what you're thinking, you're thinking what this is Barbara song have to do with anything that God that's after the break. Let again podcast listener. I would love for you to send this podcast to a friend, if you were like me and I know I am, I'm probably washing the dishes as I listen to this podcast, so you probably can't quite send it to your friend wage II.

Now, back to the show, Welcome back to the Princeton sparked production of the president entrepreneurship Council. Just heard from Tom Vander schaaf about how his Venture firm evaluates companies and how you can use those techniques as you evaluate a potential employer, whether it's a startup or more established company, you can hear the rest of this month marks in the full audio on our website or in your podcast feed. We now turn to two people from True Talent advisory an executive Search firm. You could say that Rachael ye a freshly-minted Princeton alumna off.

So in terms of things that you can negotiate with a start-up offer things that I don't even think about, you can look at your offer acceptance deadline, I know some companies. Now exploding offers, which can put a lot of pressure when you're navigating different offers. So that is something you can always negotiate. Start date. My start date was set for four days after graduation. I pushed it back base salary and bonus structure. Even a relocation stipend, that's something that people don't often think about. But that is a cushion to get you started. Fringe benefits are like health-related work for healthcare, other fringe benefits. That might be like a cell phone reimbursement, or a gym, reimbursement. All these things that you might not think about, but woke up and a bigger picture for what you could be looking for. There's also equity which meant your lawyer and entrepreneur, Jason Meyer described in part one. If you missed it, go on and give it a listen and not doing education. Next, Rachel talks about other factors to consider other factors to consider when you're thinking about your overall, offer is think about the product and the team, the people that you log. Working with I love the people at true like honestly it's awesome. Like Greg has come with me. I really look forward to going to work every day and that's not something. I thought I'd be able to say even thinking about your commute, if you're going to be commuting. In fact, I think about, if it's an hour-and-a-half commute, is that important to you, what kind of time do you want to be spending doing that in terms of growth, speaking about your personal growth within the company, as well as your professional growth? Also even articulating what your concerns are is a really good exercise because maybe that's an area of where you can continue to monitor within your first year vacation. PTO wage is something we can probably talk about as well, but a lot of startups offer unlimited PTO. I think that is a double edged sword. A lot of people end up not even taking vacation time off when they have unlimited PTO, but that's something to consider off. And then thinking about your criteria and robot promotion, ask about that know what the next steps are. And if they don't have that, may be creating your own structure. And at the end of the day, it all comes down to.

"greg brooks" Discussed on AM 570 The Mission

"I on Kevin McCullough. Radio those delegates opposing no. Two thirds of voted nip -firmative the motion is adopted. The platform has been amended is showing on the screen was a rather remarkable moment at the democratic convention to conventions back when mayor Viagra Rosa from L A made that proclamation and took that vote he had to take the vote three times because the Democrats that were in the room. They had expected to adopt. This very kind of inane amendment to their bylaws to recognize Jerusalem as the state capital of Israel, and to basically, a firm belief in God, and he was supposed to get a two thirds voice vote, and they they overwhelmed it the guy saying, no. And he eventually had to dislike in say the two thirds of the people that said, yes. But it was it was fifty fifty at best. And three times in a row. The no voices got louder the democratic representatives from the Democratic Party across the country said, no, no, no. Well, are they on the verge of doing something similar to that this time in the legislative process? Gregory is an editor for Fox News dot com. And of course, we love the Fox News dot com. Greg Brooks Syngman and others contribute regularly. I think we've had you once before so thanks for coming back. But you've got a story out today that tracks what they are doing now in terms of house committees. What is happening on this front? Sure. It's actually very similar to what happened in two thousand twelve and that we have a new democratic majority in the house as part of that each committee is able to set up its own rules for how they wanna handle witnesses. And basically, they wanna get rid of the the NFL's, which is so you got all witnesses have to save the first part of the and now they no longer have to say so help you God to out if they want to, but they're not going to be asked to say it anymore. So basically getting rid of God from the os replacing it with a. Players that you basically just swear on the on the law, basically. So the the wording changes to do, you solemnly swear affirm under the penalty of law that the testimony that you're about to give is the truth the whole truth and nothing, but the truth. That's right. And it's it's a little bit redundant because already any any testimony that's false before congress under penalty of why would be a legal. So it's it's replacing God. And it's it's adding a reference to law saying under penalty of like are you telling the truth, but it was already a legal penalty. Right. So Greg, I know that you're you're a hard journalist and not an opinion guy. But what's what's your best? Guess as to why? This is such an important thing that they want to change the rules and the committee to do this. Yeah. It's a great question. I mean, there's there's two big series. I is the progressive weight of the Democratic Party is increasingly moving increasingly showing some stability. Certain religions at least we already saw some fresh for democratic Representative is make some comments that were interpreted as either or hostile to religion in general. I think there was there was one comment about Jewish politicians happen to a royalty Israel that turn some heads. There was also a conduct die do presentative out of soda basically saying that that you know, I allies is quite a lot of evil one threat that says that there are certain hostility to Christian base belief. It's going around at the Democratic Party. But there's another belief that basically Democrats are really working hard. You just make sure that nobody is offended. And I part of that. I mean, they don't just take God outta the oath. They also take references to shoes or her out of the oh sorry out of the out of the. So previously. Witness can do can provide documents that. He or she has to say that they that they want place to pronounce, but they because they're worried about offending people based on bass agenda, presumably, so there's sort of making these broad changes to language, they would say to include more people. But you know, obviously, I think a lot of critics are saying that it's going far. Yeah. We're speaking with Gregory who is an editor. And reporter for Fox News dot com, and you can read this piece today. We'll post it up on all the social media, but you can read it at Fox, News dot com. Just look for the title dams to strike so help you God from the oath, Greg. There is in the congressional Representative. You were referring to. I believe is congresswoman Omar is that correct? Omar is the one who said that the two thousand twelve she said Israel has hepatitis the world they awakened people and help them see the evil doing that was before she was in congress, and she's obviously in two thousand eighteen or was elected one of the two I, you know, Muslim at congress. So right. That was what she said. And she's actually out of. Right, right. But you've got you've got that trio. Those two that you're discussing Mr. MS how do you pronounce the other one's name to lie? La eib. Lead to leave. You've got hurt you've gotten his, Omar. And then you've got Alexandria, ocasio Cortez who is who all three of them are really much more vocal much more aggressive and seemed to be almost anti anything that is traditional even if it's within amongst their own party. Like, the certainly they're going to tee off on pro, family and pro faith Republicans. But even if someone like Steny Hoyer or Joe Biden or somebody who tends to be kind of a a mainstay kind of an old school kind of maybe a big government liberal, but not necessarily a hardcore progressive type, they're they're treating them all the same way more or less is that is that what you understand. That's a fair statement. And I. Cortez. I know as as whole, you know, one of the reasons she was elected out there in the box was she was saying I which I'll take on the democratic leadership. No traditional whether it's the progressive tradition or delegation is is safe, and she wants to sort of a band all about I mean, there was a big role. Spike. She tried to lead a revolt in the first week about a rules package because she wanted the democratic password of even more the less Nancy Pelosi wanted basically Cortez wanted to limit all restrictions on on new spending her programs could be limited there, definitely. Characterizes an assault on tradition. I think is very very accurate. There's some readers who wrote in most of them down the story. Interesting. Some people say what's the big deal? You know, why do why would we have an oath for their God or? You know, what's the difference? And there's a real lack of respect or at least understanding of the country's origins and a desire to get rid of that quickly. And that's extending to inter inter party fights see potentially a far left candidate dominate potentially. Because there's such an outpouring of very very far left in its scorched earth for anybody. That's not on board. Liz Cheney said from Wyoming, the congresswoman said, and you this in your article, but it's incredible. But not surprising that the dams would try to remove God from the committee proceedings and one of their first acts as the majority she said, they really have become the party of Karl Marx. I think from historical perspective, she's not far off, Gregory, great peace. Thanks for breaking it down for us. A bit absolutely. Have a great day. Kevin McCullough.
