Where your spouse to like interview a grandparent and talk about the traits that you have your grandparents has been. What did they pass to your parents. What trait it. Absolutely acidic weird. Yeah guests who just drove right up to the school. And i was like. Let's just talk about this because first of all this is making my own. Kids fell credibly alienated and isolated. Let's just talk about of course. The teachers really like generous. And i'm like can you just go through all the kids in your classroom and imagine which wants do not apply so some kids are adopted. Some are with steps. Some of these kids have been fostered. Are renell yeah like this is not the nuclear family structure that is the common story anymore and so bravo to gil for introducing those narratives to our kids. I think we raise them up differently. And this hopefully will never be something. Anybody ever has to talk about again. That's families just look different at. And i know yours and mine does and i love that. And you're right. There's so many stupid books for kids and weird weird shows. My kids are big. But i have. I have little nephews. And i'm like i hate what is happening on the tv a. Cozy comfy cute. These are the three cs that defined what i wear. They just are. I apply the same rule to my shoes.

You guys you just have the you've got the secret sauce. You got the magic funny ever some like brand people here not the show but for like at a. I'm working for another company because of the show and they were in the house and we had finished filming and they're like thank you so much you've been amazing to work with your so great and my husband walks in and i was like baby. Did you hear all that. The people do like like a high. You guys don't know her totally totally you write that down for him. Were like nodding the looks. Yeah you could be like no. They say i'm delightful. So what do you know. Yeah i was just telling you that we did a short season show on hgtv. And i was telling just my community unlike. Look the best thing that i can tell you for some marriage advice. If you're going to remodel a house together with the person you married is to have cameras producers around. That's it because they make you behave like you cannot act like the lunatic that you want to act like you have to be pleasant and and kill and like nice and so yeah Built in accountability. I hear you. We're going on season seven so my husband lost that built in. Idee gene is gone so he just doesn't now. Donnelly totally yeah. This shine is off the penny so at this point it's probably very much is what it is in your world which i love so i can't imagine anybody that is in my community and listening and doesn't love yield at hdtv. As much as i do but just in case. Somebody's under rock of already kind of told my listeners. A little bit about you could have high level your credentials. But i wonder if you hand just kind of give us a look at how you got started doing what you do because you are. You're a girl in a man's world. And i love to hear about your kind of ascension to be right. Now i will try to do like you know the the nutshell version but i don't have any training. I never wanted to be a designer or architect or anything like that. I went to college. For general studies waited tables and high school and college after college. I did like my first house that i lived in college. I worked for my landlord and it had been an over under duplex like but it had like a beautiful staircase that they closed in to make it and over under duplex and wasn't anymore. So i was like. Hey take this wall down and open up staircase like it's truly darkened the living room and i don't know why but he said yes so that was like the first thing i did and got like a little taste of it and there wasn't much after that until i graduated like a built my bad in badger because i'm in college bedrooms or this big so it was a big platform bed with dressers under it and stuff like that but when i graduated with no job prospects that i wanted. I didn't want a cubicle. And a crappy pantsuit. So it's still waiting tables. I decided to convince my mom to cosign on a house for me because like i was like okay. This is my thing. I don't have a job while they house they'll make sense and it was. It was a hud house which is urban development which is shorthand for ills rare. Very bad and it was a full gut. And i got a construction alone but the construction was nearly enough to cover the work that needed so i went up when he comes in so my mom and i did a bunch of static. We didn't touch the mechanical. 's because my advice i give everyone as it can flood or set your house on fire. Leave it to someone else but me dead like the flooring in the cabinets and the tile and with windows and doors and i did trim just literally learned as we went washed each videos. I legitimately bought construction for dummies. Don't actually ever read it by on a lot of other books that like read the instructions with the flooring the flooring installing and that was that was the first one we did and it was fun and i had a little bit of money. Twenty grand save from out pretty bad crack and i was in college that invested and this rate before the market crash so it was about. It's like forty thousand dollars so was like all right. I'm gonna pull it all out in oregon. And i bought a twelve thousand dollar house and mom and i renovated it was about this bag and that was just the beginning of of the cycle and for a long time it was just i was still waiting tables. Mom was an is an attorney but she doesn't really practice anymore and you know we'd worked. I wait tables at get some cash by tile. we'd install it. She not kidding. Get like a brown paper bag of cash from her criminal. Science softening eventually got my real estate license in two thousand nine. After i pay my i and says like i could that that second realized five hundred bucks and made a like a little facebook page and i came up with the name two chicks and a hammer. Because i wanted something like fun and quirky not serious and made this facebook page and just kind of started documenting the homes. We were doing more kind of for our and i had a handful of realtors at followed me because the area we're in at that time was up and coming so they wanted to see the houses that were coming up next and acer pages. How the talent scout from high nuclear crushing company found two chicks and a hammer and had my cell phone number and my home address and said you ever thought about making a tv show. and mom. And i are not mistaken. I i'm shredded once. I did some research mom. And i definitely aren't the type to pass up an opportunity and i was just waiting table so i always through. I don't know a lot of people probably don't understand as much as we do. How long the processes between like you get called by talents. Now you go through twenty steps for the next ten months or whatever to maybe even get a pilot to maybe get a first season. And so i was waiting tables like all the way through filming our pilot and then it aired and it got kicked up and that was the beginning of the end in our season seven. That's bananas indorama story. I mean just like you know overnight. Success obviously waiting tables real estate license flipping houses shooting a pilot. You know just eat piece of cake a real piece of cake. I love that. And i think what i love. Maybe the very most. Is that your self top that you know we watch you now. You know everything about everything when it comes to a house. you're just you absolutely have it locked and loaded. I assumed this is what you studied. This is what you grew up doing. You had some sort of mentor but you bought a handbook for dummies. Any disfigured. It out i. i think i love that. I'm curious what was harder for you. Was it harder to learn construction or was it harder to learn how to run a business because you. That's that's two pillars that you.

"Hey everybody welcome to the for the love. Podcast with me jehangir. You're very very happy. Host as we continue on in our flipping the script series. We're going to be looking at all the ways that even changing our home our career and ultimately our point of view enables us to create new possibilities for ourselves with the one and the only meena. Hey everybody jin hat maker here. Your host of the for the love podcast. Welcome to the show so right now. We are in the middle of a series called for the love of flipping the script. We were really interested to talk to people right now. Who are pivoting. I think probably collectively. We are pivoting. Were were re entering life. Some semblance of normal is coming back. Whatever that really means and so. We're all in this season of like kind of a new story and so we really wanted to talk to learn from people who have done this themselves so maybe they flipped the script on their life on purpose. They started something new. They tried something new. They change their mind. They changed their life and for some of our guests. This script was flipped for them. And either way. I was interested to learn from them. What do they have to teach us right now. What lessons did they learn. What courage could they share and thought it was timely for a series like this for so many of us who scripts have changed whether by force or by choice. Either way what we do. So i have really wanted to talk to today's guest. For more than one reason she literally flips like she literally takes something old and what most people would say beyond repair and flips it and turns it into something beautiful and new slash old and stunning. And i also wanted to talk to her because she flipped the script on her own life on her own career on what she knew how to do what she was willing to learn how to do and so today. I have the absolutely incredible main a- hawk on now. If you know where you love you may have heard of her little show on. Hdtv called good bounce right good bounds and she is incredible is a superstar. I love what she has done and she'll tell you this but she doesn't have a background in construction. That's not what she grew up doing. It's not what she studied. She taught herself. She taught herself. She went to school for something entirely different but discovered this kind of passion. I mean there's no other way to describe it. It's it's her absolute entire life now. She discovered this passion and figured in a what. I'll teach myself a learn. I'll take a risk. I will pivot from where. I thought it was going. And i'm going to go this direction. Instead she built her business two chicks and a hammer with her mom and has also been growing her family like right in front of our eyes over the course of her show growing her business expanding and kind of every possible way and then most recently she added a new layer to her repertoire. She wrote a kids book called built together. And of course. I love it because it's centered around the idea of diverse families and what makes a family. I think we have a lot to learn from her for what it means to take a risk to make a change to make pivot to try something new even if it's a male dominated industry even if you don't have a history for it and you have to learn from scratch. I just drew a lot of inspiration from her. Today pasha's darling. She's absolutely darling podcast listeners. You might wanna pop over to the youtube channel so you can kind of say her too because she's got this like infectious way about her in a good way i are left. She literally was outside. Working on a remodel came inside for the podcast and went back to it and premiering a show tonight so hilarious anyway. That's over on youtube channel. If you wanna watch his talk and not just listen to us. Talk but any way you're gonna love her. You're gonna love this conversation and if you don't already love meena get excited.

"Okay so i wanna talk a little bit about your tv show and also your new line for at home. So tell me a little bit about your tv show and the new christmas collection. My tv show on hgtv is called one of a kind and it's basically about what i do in real life which is taking people's memories and and experiences and putting it into their homes You know i like to think about going beyond just making him pretty room and really making it personal and unique to them to where they really feel like their home and so i've done two seasons of that that have already aired and you can watch it on. Hdtv dot com or amazon. Or you know whatever you watch television in four at home so a really you know awesome adventure in my life has been working with at home on product line and Which includes christmas a really beautiful christmas collection that. I'm really proud of actually. Just put up christmas lights yesterday. The earliest. I've ever decorated christmas. Ever normally you know when. I'm pulling christmas out for one thing. My christmas stuff is not well organized right now but i am changing not in twenty twenty days yes but a kind of dread it like pulling it out in the boxes. They're all broken and blah blah blah. But this year. I am pumped. I think you know. I've seen a lot of this just looking at social media to people decorating really early because We are just ready for the cheer and some magic like let's get some magic up in here. it's true so you're at home. Is lots of releases and chris. Mrs just one of them right. Yes so this. Is you know where the grace mitchell for whom collection is going to be around a long time in though. Yeah so we. We worked pretty pretty far ahead. And i just feel like each collection gets better and better just so excited about all of them in just the unique things that they bring to a store you can just walk into which is great. You know a lot of people online shop. And i do some of that too. But it's sort of like magazines and books. There's just nothing like getting a magazine and opening and feeling the pages looking to pictures and dog airing and tearing out you can't. It's it's it's different. It's just hard to get that feel online. And i feel like it's the same sort of with home decor to go in there and piece things together in my car and looking at all I love you know when people send me videos and photos of them going in the store and looking at it and talking about what they like and and showing like with what they already have at home and how they're gonna pay for it and then with the holiday collection I really love a sort of a vintage kind of heirloom like special christmas things. You know I feel like a lot of christmas for a number of years of for us was like throw away. So yeah you get these begging by like the two hundred ornament It breaks your kids. Terrel the top soften thrown away. So i love this like every item just feels really special and unique and personal. It's just like the weight of it even like some of the weights of the ornaments just feels good and like some of my favorite ornaments are some from My husband's grandmother. Who i feel like it's my own And you know. They're really old from those thirties and forties. And there's you know the details the hand painting and the magic of them. I really just tried to for that too now so that you feel like when you buy it at your find something really special like something that feels like it sort of have a has in memory attached to it in a way.

Because i feel like it's just so magical even when i showed my kids you know. I took my kids here. They were like oh. This is your special with really sweet. And it's been you know. A lot of the collection has sweet little like woodland animals And each animal sorta corresponds to. You made me think of one of my children. So it's just you know kids like there are very specific things that i remember my childhood that my mom would bring out like we had this little box with the dancing santa and light up the kids love that stuff so some of the ornaments light up the trees light up. Some of the things twinkle. They've got like a snow globe with the music box. And those are the things that.

True Christian Hospitality with Karen Ehman

"Me. I've always just a pastor's wife so you know you would think with the resume that hospitality should just come easy. And i had a mother who was amazing at hospitality even though she worked fulltime job My memories are so full of our house. You know not only having people over for dinner but literally. My parents opening their homes for people who needed a place to live for a while. We used to call it gustafsen home for wayward boys and girls. I love that and there was just this open armed like we knew if someone needed a place to say even today even though my parents are much older i know that if someone really needs somewhere to stay that my parents have an extra room and would be happy to have them and so that spin just a part of their life which i would just imagine. You should have become part of my dna. But it doesn't come as easy to think that this that hospitality in that open armed approach to life. Is that a a personality type or a spiritual gift or something that we all need to cultivate. Why definitely think certain personalities tend to have an easier. Go of it. I definitely think it is a spiritual gift however not off the hook if we don't have the personality or we don't have the spiritual gift of hospitality because you know in the bible. We are told to practice hospitality. And when you look into the greek rendering of the word it's written as a command. It's not a suggestion. It's not a a sentence that best translated now. If you decide to offer has to do it this way you know. We are all told the practice hospitality and so. I don't think that it's something that we're exempt from. However i think if we can learn to have the right perspective about it it can be something that all of us can do. Because what's happened. Joanna is that the world has tainted what we think of hospitality. We look at what. The world says entertaining. Is you know which is having people to impress them with your fancy stuff in your gourmet food big house and all of those things we see on. Hgtv and i'm not knocking hdtv right. I love watching it. I'll ride but we need to learn to use those decorating websites those fixer upper shows. And all that as a resource rather than try to mimic them the lifestyle. And think that if we don't have gourmet food and a lovely redecorated house than we can't practice hospitality entertaining. What the world entertaining puts the emphasis on you in impressing others. Hospitality puts the emphasis on your guests and seeks to refresh them. Not impress them when they are in your home. It's it's about them not about you. Say about your stuff about your your food about your home. It's about them and how they feel when when there with you and the person who i reached out to me with welcome with my pastor's wife and they lived in a very old church parsonage that hadn't been redecorated in years. She used to feed me. Warmed up creamed chipped beef over day old bread. That had been into toast because that's what her family was having their eating leftovers that night. But you know what it tasted like. A gourmet feast when i was with her. Because i really didn't care about the food. I really didn't care about the house. I cared about how i felt. And i wish i could quote properly who i. I heard say that you know people will never forget how you made them feel. And that's what has battalions. It's making them feel wanted and welcomed and really listening to them as they speak. It doesn't matter it doesn't it doesn't have anything to do with your home your

"hgtv" Discussed on Behind the Yard Sign | A Real Estate Podcast

"So as a recent college grad it was really tough Even get a job let alone consider starting my own company so i just kind of took the first job i could get. I ended up being a cost reduction consultant and i traveled the country meeting different companies. Trying to figure out how to lower their administrative skills so that instead of letting go of people they could lower their overhead and hopefully keep jobs. It was a great experience for me as far as traveling and learning how to talk to different executives and interact with different companies. And i went from there into social responsibility for a large investment firm who also actually managed help manage a large foundation and then also a volunteer program corporate volunteer program. That was a great experience because it opened my eyes to the world of nonprofits and how important it is to be involved in. Your community was something i'd always done but just as like never been never taken that next level and so from there during that job i was working fulltime. My husband was working fulltime. We decided to buy a piece of land and build ourselves house and also build a house next door. House as an investment project offset the cost land and building in southern california is crazy expensive and your husband has the same degree in entrepreneurs. Right he does yes and so he had started his own staffing firm as a subset of a family company that his dad had started twenty five years prior so he was working fulltime corporate america. I'm working fulltime. corporate america. both of us up on our business suits leave the house get back late. Scrounge some food and go to bed but through all of that we had taken on this real estate in denver. And the problem with taking on large real estate endeavor. When you're working full-time is that you don't have time to necessarily work on it. We're like oh you still the house and we'll build another house and it'll be great. We had both had our real estate licenses in boston during college. So we understand real estate and we kind of knew we were getting into but we never built a house. We never remodeled the house. You never done anything like that. So long story short or maybe long story long two years into the project. We really haven't made it very far. We were framed which is a big deal. In new construction that she's scrapped. The old buildings leveled everything started with a fresh clot of dirt. Gotten everything through the city with the engineers and the architects got everything framed but then it was time to lake. Make the house. Pretty and put the drywall up. Which is a big deal and construction. Because you're closing up the walls and you can't really change anything after that. And then my builders. Like i need to know what type of cabinets you guys want of countertops. What type of tile my husband and i. We just looks at each other. We don't know any of us. We don't even know what cabinets are. We knew nothing like this. This is in two thousand twelve garage. Twenty twelve. I left my job and i went and manage those two projects and so literally gave my two weeks notice and i was on the construction site two weeks later and the guys that.

How Vivian Kaye Turned Her Hair Care Needs into a Multi-Million Dollar Biz

"K. is a fourteen year veteran entrepreneur who has bootstrapped to companies from the ground up for the last seven years. She has strictly focused on the e-commerce world where she built kinky curly Yacky, which offers textured hair extensions for black women to over one million in annual revenue Vivian has been featured on shop. Expert Academy Series Ted Conferences the way we worked and has been featured and digital publications such as Black Enterprise Magazine and refinery twenty nine Vivian, welcomed being boss. Thank you for having made such a pleasure to be here. Vivian! We've gotten to know you a little bit over the past couple of days. You've popped in on some of our sessions. You've been offering us so much guidance and. Radiance and your smarts and all of the things. So now I'm dying to hear your story like, can you, can we? Let's rewind a little bit and we're GonNa. Get into all of the wisdom that you have to share, but I want to know more about your entrepreneurial journey, so tell us like. Where did it begin? How did you get to where you are now being on Ted and refinery twenty nine this morning i saw on your instagram. You're on somebody's vision board like talk about goals. How did you get there? Honestly I really don't know. Because, it's not like being an entrepreneur was a big thing right, so you know back when I was growing up? Being an entrepreneur was for people who didn't have jobs. And so I kept you know I was always in jobs where the one person department one Person Marketing Department and then you know I was at a job one day and decided to start side hustling. So I started out my first business as a side hustle and then while I was running that side. Hustle I got fired for sorry I got laid off. That's the momentum. Laid off from that job, and then at that point I said. You know what let me just let me just go for it. Just go for it and do whatever I need to do. 'cause I'm young I'm free and I can. I can do whatever I want. And while I was running that business I started running, and then I had started a side hustle with kinky curly Yacky, so it was like I had businesses running at the same time so it wasn't something that I set out to do, but with both businesses I set out to solve my problem. And at the time I didn't realize that that was the best way to start a business. But that's what it was I. set out to start to solve my own problem or to solve a pain point that I saw people were having so so that's how my entrepreneurial journey began. What was the first sight hustle? The first sight has a wedding decorator. So all I would do is go in and decorate people's wedding so instead of being on a an event planner doing you know doing all those little things I focused on one thing and what it was I decided so there's a whole story behind that so I'm one of four girls and I'm the second the number two. So my older one was getting there. My older sister was getting married and she hired a decorator who who sent you decorate the wedding for? Say a thousand dollars right, so she paid her deposit. Everything was good, but two weeks before the wedding she came back and said I need another thousand dollars, but didn't have a reason why. Right so I thought well. Of course, she couldn't have paid for A. She couldn't afford to pay her, so she ended up having to hire different decorator that decorated did a crack tastic job. And so I'm like. Why is it so difficult? Why can't decorators just say that they're going to do X. Y.? And this is what it costs and Bass what they do and keep it simple, so then I thought well. I'm just GONNA I was been into decor and HGTV when TLC used to beat more home decor than reality so I would So I started I decided I wanted to be a wedding decorator I. wanted to create weddings that were simple, but fabulous so I would ask. My bride's like okay, so do you remember the last wedding that you went to? And they would say yes, will do you remember the centerpieces or the decor? Remember. It was pretty I'm like that's what we're going to do. So instead of spending mortgage down payments on decor. Why not create something that is memorable, but affordable and people just remember it was pretty, and that's it so that's what I set out to do. And it was a it was a great success, and this was a business that I started with no prior knowledge like I just figured it out as I was going along. And so I can tell that you're a branding lover at heart because you're like, forget pretty. I want memorable and I think this is going to be a thread that we we've through all of your stories, but before we get to connecting those thoughts. I went to hear more about kinky curly Yucky, so what was? What was the problem that that was solving? And how did well I I'm the worse doing I always do this. I always asked two questions in a row. So question one is more about kinky curly yacky. What problem did that solve? And then I'm really curious to hear a little bit more about how I do think that whenever we have side hustles and day jobs and we're trying on a bunch of different things they all start to. Tie together in some ways like we're always learning lessons from one thing to the next. I'm also really curious to hear. What lessons did you learn from wedding decorating that you're able to take to kinky curly yacky. That's a great question. Okay, so the first question was How can you KEROUAC even started? About problem so the problem was I as I was a wedding decker, and so I'm I. I actually live in Toronto, so it's one of the most Toronto Canada, and it's one of the most diverse cities in the world so I was doing everyone's wedding from you know the Muslims to South Asian to Indian to everyone, everyone's wedding so This is going to be a bit explain if anyone really wants to know the real detailed answer. I could always do that at a later point, but. For Black Women. We have to present. We have to show up in the world in a certain way, which is quote unquote presentable so most a Lotta Times wearing our hair, as it is naturally with kinky curly with kinky hair It's not professional. Why don't go professional? So I wanted something that looks like my hair. But would protect my hair because our hair is not suited to this north. American environment, it's it there's not moisture. It dries out really quickly but anyways I wanted something that looked like my hair and know what asked me where I bought it because I didn't want that whole. Nikki manashe thirty two inches of blonde wig down to my I wanted something that looked presentable. So I searched and searched and searched for something that looks like my hair, and then when I found it I weren't to a meet up. To just like a general networking event, and another black woman came to me and said WHO's your hairdresser? And what is your regimen for keeping your hair like that? And I said girl. This is a wave. And she was like I would buy. And this was in this was in two thousand eleven, so I thought well if she would buy it. And I bought it. There's gotta be at least a dozen. Other women would buy it to now. When I was looking to solve my problem, I saw I saw the gap in the market I. Thought There are no companies just selling kinky hair, but I was already running the successful decor business. I was buying my coach bags. I was going on vacation. I was happy with that, and then I decided then I thought well. You know you know. Weddings have a down sees. It feels like you know what I can't like. Itching the back of my brain, so then I said to myself you know what in the down season of of of Vivian the core I'm going to launch his company and I literally made up the name while I was in the shower like I was like Yankee curly. Jackie, O okay and I bought a domain name, and I launched it in December two thousand twelve, and it immediately took off. Okay so I actually do want to hear the details about the actual hair. You don't mind no worries because okay, so I remember talking to emily in the early days of ALMANAC supply company, which is her business and she was trying to find very specific candle containers to pour her candles into, and we talked about some deep googling like how you just have to search like. Get real good at searching. So how did you well? I guess two questions? Are It was a we've, but it looks natural so I think this goes back to that almost that brandon conversation of like it doesn't have to look quote Unquote Professional. Let's make it memorable like let's just make it bigger. Bigger let's make it more of a statement. which I think is so cool so I guess I have two questions here one. How did you find the natural hair? If there is a gap in the market? How did he find a? We've that had the natural texture and then in that might be getting too much of your secret sauce like you might not have to answer that one, but like how do you? How do you find the materials and then guess my next question is? How did you start to then scale and expound upon that not having any experience in that industry so how? Sold! The key was that I was trying to solve my own problem so What I was doing is I. Would I was doing that deep googling I was in facebook groups I was on hair care black hair care forums. Just you know just. Talking with other people and people of course at that time, a lot of people were sharing okay well. I bought this here I. Bought that there, and so that I would of course make note that, because again at the time I was not looking to start another business I was just looking to solve my own problems, so I wrote. You know I would contact every. Every single factor, every single manufacturer, every single website that said they would do kinky hair, and the once I found the one I was like. Wow, this, actually a pretty decent I would ask them to tweak it a little bit. Just a suit, my needs and they did it and I was like okay and I thought well after the girl confirmed my idea. I decided okay well. Let me see the state. Factory can still do it and I would order the same product under different names and asking to do different things to it, and they would do. So I thought okay. Okay. I'm onto something here. And so that's how that's how I was able to. I guess perfect the product because again. I I like to get high on my own supply, so that's the beauty of the businesses that I M my customer. I know what I'm looking for I know what problems I'm looking to solve I. Know What my pain points would be. And what other black women's pain points would be, and the only person who's able to address that is me. So of course I use that to my advantage You know to tell my brand's story but at the time again I listen, I'm an immigrant. I'm a college dropout and now a single mother. So I had no clue. About all these storytelling and branding mark I had no clue I just thought it was just doing what kind what came naturally to me. So so how I scaled that business well, I think one of the mistakes that a lot of people are making in starting businesses that they don't have an audience for the product that they have and so then what I had done again I inadvertently created an audience by by being on those facebook facebook. Forums a facebook groups that had black hair care forums because I was shining. Just being Vivian online people remembered me. So bad, and the funny thing was what I, when I when the business launched, no one knew it was me I didn't. I wasn't. My face wasn't the base of the brand it was just like here's some products. You guys will love Ed Oh. My Gosh and people bought it, but what happened was. I was facebook group and someone I didn't do. The WHO is on the back end of my website do that. Who has privacy on the back end of my product? Someone in one of the facebook groups created a fake place book profile and posted all my information in those facebook groups. Saying this is the person who owns that brand. So what she meant. To to like to help me to make me fail actually was what turned my like. What is what actually skyrocketed my business? Because once people found out that I was the person behind that brand, they were like well. Shoot I'm going to almost support her because she's this. She's that I remember she's Great. She's awesome, and that's what took off so I realized then that. My brand, my person like why. Is What is going to help me succeed in business. Amen I. Resonate so much with what you're saying and. I have branding agency as well and really focus on personal branding and I i. feel like one a lot of people always tell you you need to identify your customer and what they need, but I always think it really does start with you if you can start with what you need you like, you can trust that. We're not all that different and that if you can just get specific about yourself, you're going to be getting specific about your dream customer. Customer so we are so aligned there and then the fact that I mean it was an unfortunate, and you know really inappropriate way to learn the power of personal branding, but you did learn the power of personal branding, so that is incredibly exciting and I. WE'RE GONNA dig into more about like how you leverage that and who you are, and what you do, and how you bring it into your business and draw boundaries and all of the things but. We do have an attendee question that I. Want to slide in here if we may. I'm in this question is from. Death and I think especially for creatives. Who is you know most of our crowd here then we add like to hear your. Hear your thoughts on this, so here's your question. so Vivienne said she had the hair problem herself and chose to solve it, but what kept her on that path instead of ending up as an all purpose, beauty, Guru or similar. To be honest. Hair is not my jam. So really what I? How I think of it is just the ends to a means way or means to an end it's the means to an end, so my real goal is to give black women confidence to show up as they are in the world. So hair just so happens to be the the means to that end. So how I just stick to hair you know I'm pretty. I'm pretty good at focusing on the one thing like it's what I've learned is You know niche of and that's my I will preach about I say niche, but its niche. You know it's either. We can use them interchangeably potato potato. Okay, so with me I. Find that if You speak to a very specific group of people, and you sell them a very specific product. They will be your most loyal fans. They are cheaper to market to they. Are you know more about them? Especially when you already are them so for me that makes it very easy to stick to that one thing because I know that very well and I can speak to it now. Let's just by started venturing into. Say. Make up girl I'll even know how to put on eye shadow right so it wouldn't. It wouldn't. I wouldn't have authentic voice I can't lend that often into city to that product, but what I do know is hair. I'm not a hairdresser. I'm not a hair stylist. Because I had a passion for solving my own problem so that I could show up as quote. Unquote professional in the world. I can solve the I know what looks professional for me. You know I learned you don't like it. That's your problem. Not Mine Right, so we as a black women. What started in two thousand? I want to say. In Two thousand eleven two thousand twelve. Is that Youtube? We started all jumping on youtube and teaching each other how to care for our hair. We stopped putting before. We're used to put chemicals in our hair in order to straighten it to look to fit that European standard of beauty. But then we were like you know what I'm tired of that crap. We're tired of that. We don't want that if that's not Howard. The hair grows out of our heads. You're either going to accept this as we are or not right so so the goal of. Of making black women confident in how they show up in the world is really what keeps me focused on here. There's other people and I and I realized. I'm really good at that, so if I just if you just focus on the one thing that one goal your why. Then you're. You'RE NOT GONNA get distracted by all the Shiny Mirror. The the shiny objects that are floating around, because yeah I could make some easy money doing makeup, but I'm not passionate about that I. don't that doesn't that's not my jam? I love the what you did was instead of doing. The sheds are what people may have expected you to stuck with thing I think oftentimes people in this crowd see either see someone who have sort of diverged from that path, or so. They're thinking okay I. Should I should diversify as well or they sort of get these little inklings of like going to different. Different things I love that what you've done is just focused. You focused on doing the one being amazingly well exactly, and that's and that's the one, if I had to give one piece of advice to anyone is do that one thing and do it really well before you move onto anything else because you know doing that. One thing really really really really really really. Really really really advising that really do that. One thing really well. Guess what you can do anything you can apply that same, so that's what I learned in billions, the core I learned that if I kept it simple and I just focused on providing my brides with this one product and do it really well, it would speak for itself, so I took that same. Simple yet fabulous and I applied it to. Kinky Curly Aki. So people like what can I all? I'm explained the Kinky curly Yacky. What is that, so? It's Kinky kinky hair, and it's curly for curly hair, and then there's Yacky. So? Yuck, so yacky actually is short for Yak, or against the long overreact so back in the day when they wanted to mimic black women's hair straightened. They use hair from Jack the animal. So the industry just put an eye on the end and call the Yacky, so you would know what Jackie was. If you were a black woman, so any block won't be like. Oh! You got that Yacky in and so it's a sort of tongue in cheek, so you would have to be part of that target demographic in order to understand the name of the the name of the brand clear I love that. You're very specific about your dream. Customer to effect. Because I was her I get hot on my own supply. So at some point, did you end up closing the decorating business I did? I closed it I. Shut it down back in two thousand fifteen, and the only reason why I did is because I got practice. More. Yeah so I launched kinky curly. Aki in the summer of two thousand twelve by July of two thousand, thirteen. I was in the business was doing really well at that point? It was I was just doing just under four hundred thousand dollars in sales. and I found out in July I was pregnant. Anti ago. And so you know with my? With wedding core I had brides booked a year out. Right so so I was still doing those weddings, still going to the still going to meetings breastfeeding doing weddings that type of thing. And then I started I wasn't really paying attention to what can carry Aki was doing I didn't know all these numbers until later on because I was doing it just because I just loved it and I was learning about H. Tim Allen Marketing in Seo and I just I just threw myself into it, but wasn't paying attention to the numbers. I just knew it was doing well. But then when I found out, I was pregnant. I was like okay. Okay, the being you got to the chill, you gotta chill. You can't be can't be doing everything and then in two thousand, fourteen march, two, thousand, fourteen I, gave birth to my son and he's been wonderful ever since he's six now. and then I saw what can curly accu was doing I thought. Ma'am really half assing it. What happens if I put my full ass into this? And once I did again. It took off, so so yeah, okay so. I I know that whenever entrepreneurs are listening to this or site hustlers listening to this. They're like wait a second. She accidentally created a half a million dollar business and wasn't even paying attention. So how does that happen? Did was that like word of mouth or referral? Launches You have specific marketing plans. What did that look like for? You had none of that I had was what people knew me from in the facebook groups, and and because I was also also go. Gee of the niche, their niche of just selling kinky hair did not exist before I. Start before I created my company. So because I saw a gap in the market I'm A. I pioneered that so any other company that you now see selling kinky hair is because of me. And so then because I was first to market with that bat just. Exploded because that's women were looking for. I was solving their problem and on top of that I looked like them. Right so it's like they were like girl. You know, 'cause. One of the things would be like girl I was tired of the whole African in the front, an Indian in the back. If you're a black woman, you know what that means, so what that means is we're all from. Black women are from the African for so we had these tight kinky air, and then we are putting on these silk weaves. I didn't blend with our hair. So I was tired of the whole African in the front and Indian in the back, and that resonated with people, so it just and I didn't do I didn't i. Here's another thing I just literally launched with one product. I locked to one product and I only had three lancs. I only had three lengths. I remember at the time, and someone would buy one I would take that money in going by two. And that's how I built. My business I didn't I. Bootstrap I started from zero. I took no outside capital I didn't have any debt I literally started from the bottom. And was it easy. No, no, it wasn't. Is that possible ABSA freaking move?

So I, WanNa talk a little bit about authenticity because you. I feel like that's the core of who you are is being who you are even whenever it's not. By design, you know it just kind of showed up that way. You are your own client and I think that's one of the greatest ways to be authentic when it comes to creating what you do. So. Let's let's talk a little bit about that. Why do you think that autheniticity and being true to yourself and using your own personality is important for anyone who is building a business or a brand? Because people don't necessarily. I think one of the biggest things people need to keep in mind as people aren't necessarily buying the product. As you can see, it's not like I'm the first person to ever sell Kinky, textured hair extensions and back. There were tons of companies that had it, but what they did. is they buried it underneath the silkier texture, so not the first. To Sell Kinky textured hair extensions. But what people don't realize that people aren't necessarily buying the product. They're buying the person or they're buying the emotions. They're buying lifestyles behind the product. So brand is where you can tell that story so branding will help you. To, help you, stand out in the crowd. It will help people remember and especially when you have a story that resonates with someone one. That's what they're buying into. They could care I. Mean Yeah, you could, you could be selling something. That's more expensive and more has a tools unless this unless that, but what they're buying is the person or the idea or the emotions behind. It so I that's what I realized very quickly is especially in the wedding decor. Businesspeople clouds giving. You made me you made it. It feel so simple. You made me feel so comfortable, and you made this process so easy for me and I realized. It doesn't go learn how to do all the fancy. You know all the fancy. Do Decor all I want but that's not what they care about. They care that I made them feel good about the money that they were spending made their wedding. Feel pretty like I made them feel that way. So that's that's really what you should focus on. I love that you said that you're not the first person to sell kinky natural hair extensions, but that it's been buried, and so you took a product unique in on it, and then you highlighted it, and it's beautiful, and you're owning it and you're helping. Other women own it I'm curious, little bit with some of the activism around. Natural Hair California has banned hair discrimination. It's something that I was so excited to see and when it continue to see, are there any levels of like activism or do you think even products like yours have helped? Create that kind of. Activism you know? Do you think that it's like no? This is who we are and this is just as professional as any other hair well I. Think the problem was that we were letting you know black women in general were we were leading the world? Tell us what was beautiful. And you know Youtube and you know the the beauty of the Internet was us being able to see each other people outside of our own communities, and how they look. How many rock their hair and all that jazz so I think really it. It just helped people just be who they wanted just to be who they are like just to be their authentic selves and truth be told, and it does just women in general, because even society tells us. Women were supposed to look like like I'm pretty sure after this quarantine thing has done. There's going to be a lot of people who were blonde. That aren't blonde anymore, right? But you know with black women where we're especially, you know we. Don't want to say Alison to say hated on because of how we look, and so then this i. feel just the way to just listen world we have to teach. We have to teach the world. This is how we are. If they don't like it. That is their problem. Because this is how my hey, this is how the hair grows out of my head naturally. It's curly it goes. It goes to the heavens because that makes me closer to God in the Sun. Right, as so if that's not something you think is professional, I think you really need to reexamine what your idea professional is. Karen sorry. Goes show that Chad. Presentation matters absent. That is what the Internet gave us. It gave us access to each other and to To all kinds of beauty and bodies and ways of being right, and it allowed us to see ourselves and others, and we can't help it, but need permission you know, and that permission sometimes simply in representation I have so many role models where I'm like. Oh, I didn't know I could do that until I saw them do it. And you're providing tools for that awareness as well which I think is like that's an important part of this, too. It's not only having access to the vision of its having access to the tools to, and that's even what you've done. Okay Vivian, you're you just radiate confidence? We all see. We all feel it over these past couple of days, do you? Some of our listeners are indeed here today WanNa know. Do you ever doubt yourself like? Do you ever have what we call being bossed? Friday? Feelings I mean especially going into industries that you didn't have experienced in. Full frequently. Battle with imposture syndrome Prodi feelings all the time. But then. I. Think to myself you know what. If. I don't do what I'm. Put on this earth to do then nobody will. Nobody will be able to do it either, because people who who look like me or even in the same situation as me so I. Guess I'm a single mom. I've been through depression. I've been I've been through all the things that tried me and I came out gold. So if I don't tell that story, I don't tell people how it's done. Then everyone's just this is GonNa be one hell of a boring world so if I. Let that Imposter Syndrome. Eat Me! Eat Away at me. Then that's not that's not fair. It's not fair to anyone. Right, so I shine so that everyone else can shine to. Raise that's like. Your purpose higher than your emotions absolutely. Thinks the. Catholics. Say she's like yes. I, know what with his quarantine? My bow talks has worn off so you can see my reaction. That's right. My eyebrows moving now. I love it. Up Cackling. Right I'd like to bring this to. The branding things, which you've talked a little bit about and the conference, but not everyone has been a part of the conference like listening to this we have. So many more people who have been who have been here with for the past couple of days, so I wanna to talk about this personal branding piece. And if you have any top tips for anyone who's looking to infuse more of their personality into their brand, how can just any old person in by any old person I mean? Everyone is a snowflake How can anyone shine in their business and use themselves as a tool for growth? Or what I want to remind people is you don't need to be me. So you, you know there's. If you think about people like if you think it will jams, right? There's different Jams Jentzsch. Ruby shied differently than a diamond emeralds than that, so you need to be exactly that so be yourself because the minute you start being someone who you're not. It's going to feel like work. It's going to feel You're going to hate it. People will see right through it. So you really don't have any choice, but to be yourself and so sometimes that means you being quirky, or it means you know. Maybe you do more blogging than you do video or whatever the case may be. You just need to show up as yourself. In whatever platform however way you want to do it and the people who it will resonate with. We'll find you. They will find you, so don't be. Please don't be anybody else you don't. That's not what you were. Put on this earth to be to be someone else I just doing yourself a huge disservice by not being yourself. How windy you feel the most yourself Vivian. Like sometimes it's hard to know like what what is me. What should I be sharing? Where do I draw these lines? You know what you know you know where the lines are to be drawn right? You know you know liking. We women. That's one thing I find with specially with women, and there's a lot of things on finding, but anyhow with women we need to trust. Our guts were always second guessing ourselves. We're always doing all these things, but you just need to trust yourself because you know what you know where that line is. You know what you should be sharing what you shouldn't be sharing. Someone there's comanding that unlike very existential questions, which is basically sums it up I'm like, but but even are we but a bundle of sell. What is time? What is personality? What is money. So sorry asked me asking the question again, so I can play it all night, so the question is windy. You feel most yourself like. How do you know what is authentically? You because I think all of us. WanNa show up as we are and who we are. But we can start to second. Guess Ourselves, so you were saying like we. As women need to listen to our guts like we know, it's in our guts. But how do you tune into that like I know like? Let's just say. I remember doing a couple of years ago, I did. I was I was asked to speak at a hair like a beauty hair brand thing and I didn't like it. 'cause hair was not my passionate kid. I could give to kicks about hair, but put me on. Put me in a forum or an opportunity like this. This is where I shine. So I know. You know you know like you know like you know. I'd so, that's the only. Way Can I can explain. We know you know you know. My in I think even what you're explaining is that you know by trying things, and then like listening to yourself right, so you did the hair thing or you went and spoke at the hair thing and you're like this feels gross like, but you wouldn't have known that if you hadn't tried it. I ache, factly eggs, and that's the key to life to. You gotta try. You gotTA. Try GotTA. Try GotTA. Try 'cause. That's the only way you're gonNA. Find out what you. You like and don't like you can apply that to life like you don't know you like Kale until you try it. You don't know you guys that do this until you try it. You have to go through and try a bunch of different things, and then and you know one of the things I started to realize because I'm I'm forty two, so at forty I was like you know what I'm done trying to live in this Fox like I'm done, it's over. I'm Vivian means lively one so Vivian you just need to go about living your best life because. You know all before I was forty at kept trying to be. Everyone kept trying to put me in this box. You know be a box. Go in the box. You know what I. I discovered that I was a parallelogram. Graham is is a sideways buckler rectangle that has. The Google it okay. I was a parallelogram and I was tired of being put into the box, and so once I turned forty. I just flip the bird to everything and said you know what again if you do not like it, I do not care. That is not my problem. You can go kick rocks with an open Tokyo.

Leslie Welcome. Hi. I'm so excited to be here with you. Guys for those who don't know Leslie wasn't amazing. Tennis player career high numbers seventeen as well as doubles number ten and we're going to talk to her about her career, but also what? She's been up to since stopping link. That's a lot to get into. Let's begin with. How has your quarantine shutdown period band during the coronavirus pandemic? What have you been up to? Well. It's a good thing that I like myself. Because I spent a lot of time alone I'll like everybody else and I'm in new. Jersey so very close to the epicenter of New York. Things were just out of control a few months ago or a few weeks ago. so one of the things that I decided that I would do once. I heard that it could be helpful was too so fabric masks so I just went to. My sewing area, dug out all the savage that I had because I. Work in real estate as well usually for my client I will so the Mahan. ME, apron and I just had. Had all that fabric and turned it into masks donated it to the hospitals they they accepted it. They sent us. I did it with another tennis player Pope Amuse and so we would get them picked up, and then they would send us pictures of them in the hospital with the signs with masks with signs that would say, stay home or stay say or be well, so it was a little bit. It was a lot rewarding. So. What else have you been focusing on during this pandemic? Tell us a little bit more. One of the things that I did I spent the last few years working was some tennis athletes that were on NJ -til, excellence a team and they were now heading off to college, and I wasn't quite sure that they knew all the things they would be facing as a student athlete so I, did a virtual training with them, and they were from all across the country. It was about a dozen of them may have different challenges and things to to figure out or interview. current athletes. What's it like so? It was really eye opening for them rewarding for me because my friends. They call me the professor because there's two things that I did. I either get up in the morning and I profess I'm GonNa do this I'm GonNa. Do this do that do that and usually I'm spinning like a top and do any of it so so they can hear me and my cadence, oh. You're professing now. They just say we don't even listen to you. We know we know you're not GonNa do, but maybe one thing on the list, but the other thing that I do. The professors is I. Love to teach in. You experience some of that I. Just I just love so it was rewarding to work with the athletes and some of my individual clients virtually to do win for life trading. So, how do you guys Know Each Other? You mentioned? You know arena from from working together. What have you guys been up to together I guess in the past couple of years. Will I will the first time. Obviously followed her career in since she was from New York and live not far from where I lived in New York. We were both in Washington Heights arena. Would you say you were Washington Heights to? I typically say Washington Heights but I'm more in. Would in lactose seven I street? Yeah, that's why I ask because I know there's a difference. But anyway we were, we were New Yorkers kindred. Areas and so I was coming down to do someone's life training with the boys and the women were young men, and the women just help them be ready for what they might face on the tour in terms of media training. How do you do interview techniques? How do you pivot and not answer difficult question? How do you get your point across and we bonded right away. Away, because we both loved HGTV and we still do so so that was I don't know two thousand fifteen in Ben, I, guess the last time I saw her was in November during winds life training at the Sloan Stevens Invitational Camp and Rada was there is one of the guests, coaches and speaker, so we just and we just kept up. Overtime was the magic of text. The company's the Wgn Usda than hire you and win for life. Colin teach people and train them. They need to. I have done some. You know I'm always involved with Billie Jean and the power hour and I haven't done as much with the US, but perhaps I, will you never know? So you know it's, it's my passion, so I'm not gonNa Chase people to to take the opportunity to to get better and to have To improve your. Your ability and I think when we feel more confident about ourselves, especially as as young women. you just do better. You play around the court. You're not worried about some things because you know all I'm GonNa. As that interview I'm not worried. I know how to speak at this party I'm not worry, and that's just one less thing. You can check on your list so. Game! Oh I believe it helps you.

"Okay coronaviruses changing everything including house hunting and house renovation twenty seven percent of homeowners said that they would consider moving to a home with more room I'm a current of ours now if you watch any of these home improvement shows HGTV even TLC has a couple of them everybody wants to open concept concept and I love watching them because they're hilarious because they see like he wants modern and she was more traditional or whatever they walk into like a gorgeous craftsman from the nineteen thirties hasn't been touch beautiful beautiful dark woods never been painted and the first thing they want to do is knock down walls so I can get a clear line of sight from the kitchen to the to the TV room so I can see that the children are doing it nobody wants a dining room anymore so they just went like this big huge open floor plan and they paint whatever what is left white I mean really so like that is going to like these beautiful old homes and knocked down all the walls and if they don't want no walls at all and so I always laugh whenever I see shows will now we're finding out that maybe people want more rooms because of the corona virus now searches for new construction homes during the pandemic of search seventy three percent compared to last year and a lot of people are interested in designing their own home now we once knew I mean you know thirty five percent said a new floor plan would be appealing now they found that twenty seven percent said they would consider moving to a home with more rooms and that open spaces with combined kitchen living rooms and dining rooms are too noisy to work in when you live in a warehouse that gets to be a little noisy there's no walls to contain the noise so say you need an office you need a space you can actually cordon off and do your work yet they said or they decide they're just in need of quiet spaces to do at home workouts or just to simply block out the noise and I had seen another study awhile ago another it as it was actually study that was done and found that this move towards open concept is against human nature as humans we like to feel cozy we like to you know snuggle up on the couch and watch TV my friends in England had a room called us they called it the snug and it's just this little room and it's got a little two person couch and has another little two person couch and that's the only thing in the room as well with the TV and they just curl up in there and watch TV or read a book or whatever and it's cozy you can't you is the word cozy with these open concept homes yes or not cozy there everything but it also depends on Tuesday they also depends on like how many people you're routinely having over in the space like in my family we have so many people over for dinner on weekends is that it is kind of nice to have a big space for everybody can mingle and hang out but you do need a place that you can get away too I get that and then when you so when you have limited dollars to spend on a home and you've got to make those decisions and your priorities Hey I need a space that I can actually do my work and you can see why people are making that decision now although we love like as much natural sunlight as we can get into the house so that's a good excuse for why these open floor plans often work is because you can get a lot of light kind of pouring through the home yes you could probably also get warehouse space is cheaper than you can get a house yourself I'm sure you're sick hello I'm not contemptuous I just laugh when I watch on the shows when they walk into these homes and they're like I want to tear down this wall we're gonna take this Walgreens take this when she walks in and the first thing the wife almost always as always so cozy and then she's going to take on this role in this wall and what it's going to be everything but cozy is just funny to me I yeah funny and amusing I don't know it doesn't I read the use of it you just bring it up a lot that's right they like it's it's trance it's moved from funny to like you've got a real beef with these people no because this shows make me laugh I watch the shows and they make me laugh because it doesn't make any sense a Texas realtor group other his dissertation realtors is no longer using the word master to describe bedrooms and bathrooms now on their MLS the multiple listing service they are now primary bedroom and primary bathroom apparently the word master is also being stricken from the English language along with whiteness fair whitening fairness that kind of thing all that stuff that I'll change I thought that was the thing that kind of that debate happened awhile ago I can see it like why it's happening again now because everything is selling crazy but I remember this fight before and if they changed it and you can even see it now if you look for real estate like they don't describe them as as the master bedroom anymore it's like instead it's the owner's suite or the owner's room well I think the number is also bad owners probably also bad additions with the word owner there's some people who could be offended by that yes you know if you had a masters of business a bit and then be a masters in business business administration will just be like a really good business administrator now wow yeah I had to go because it really good other court of master sommeliers they great wine stewards master sommelier title after they pass an exam of the study and everything they no longer will use that term before a Somali gaze last name so it's not even worth getting the masters anymore if you can't use it in your name if you can't be the master sommelier then it's just not even worth it anymore what's the point so did you ever do this around like growing up or direct and in your family or anywhere where you would call young man master until they turned twelve years old where you would like eat either formal invitations right yeah your address a letter to you know master Walter yeah I kind of like just because he's under twelve at that point that probably is not a thing we do anymore is it no that was the way of thank you notes those aren't a thing anymore either so it's probably is it since you know we're all a lot of the old I I think rules that went out with you know with matters and that type of thing also read that that that's been gone for a long time south that's interesting very interesting seven twenty three AM WMAL hello David are you talk about and I'm one of five point nine FM W.

"In gardens and I got weans running on a drip system for her backyard so that she could go on vacation and enjoy herself without worrying about plants. Because it's a real thing it's scary gift for you and you don't even have drip irrigation for my nursery. I literally have to pay either my fifteen year old or the fifteen year old kid down the street and I pay them like twelve dollars an hour to stand around with a water hose. Wow and I told him I was like you cannot stand on your with the water. Hose in your phone because you'll be wasting my water. Trust me I know because I can't do it either. It's a resource and you're super green. You're all about this Green landscaping and and live in Green. Is I can be without being a purist but I. I'm kind of a freak at home. Like April puts up with a very interesting man that she gets to call her lover. Because I'm weird like here's here's my latest weird thing and I'll just share with you guys and then I'm not gonNa tell you everything but so I finally restarted my heart too. I have a wooden hot tub in my backyard and it's been down and out for like five months and it was the cold season so I was like nobody wants to be out there anyways and I didn't have time to fix a hot tub because if you have a wooden ought to have a snorkel tub you have to drain it. You have to dry completely out which means you have to carpet in the wet season or good luck with that so funny when it got warm. I had it all dried out. You open it up. You have to loosen up the hoops on it with a Mallet. If to tighten up all the hoops if to fill it with water and then you have to hope like hell that it's swells up and it makes it self waterproof all over again so. I filled it up two days ago and then yesterday I ran the hose at like less than a quarter percent running constantly in it because I could still see it and hear the leaks coming out of it so I'm sort of putting water into it and water is dripping out of it and I'm wasting water and I recycle as much as I can and it was killing me the wastewater so for the last two days. I've been bathing in my hot tub. I keep calling the house and then turned on the shower. I'm like wasting water out here. It's at one hundred and two degrees. Just dip into the hot TUB Kevin. I'm running chlorinated water from my hose into the air. I'm so in chlorine tabs in here and so I'm bathing in the hot tub but this morning because I knew I was doing zoom call I shaved and then I jumped into the actual shower. And Wow thank you guys thank you we get smell you from your we rake like that. I come post like crazy I catch all my gray water. I'd dump it onto my compost pile. I recycle wherever I can whenever I can and I have about a thousand gallons of water than I'm able to recycle from rainwater up here and then I have to cart it by hand. Run hoses downhill environmentalists. That's awesome yet. Can I bring you guys back to what we were because I had my brain on a trajectory? Yes yes Dr Ahmed. When we were discussing how does how do you get to the point where you're at landscaper? And then you get on television. What happened? Someone came up. They said you've got the political class in TV producers. Come over there okay. I'll tell so I'm taking all these classes in horticulture always at night because I'm always working during the daytime like literally learning information at night. The next damn regurgitating information to my clients and my clients like wow. He's a wizard on my yup. And here's my bill. So I'm I I'm working with and I'm taking classes I mean with with installers with different folks who do different things all landscaping horticulture. And one of my designer. Gal Friends was She was moonlighting for. Hdtv shows and she was getting paid as the designer and she told me she's like you know they're always looking for good looking young people who have great ideas. I'm a good looking young person and I think I have great ideas and so I got the number of the production company and I pitched them an idea to. Redo this fabulous landscape that happened to be in my backyard with me and my wife and my first home and They're like well. You know you can't really do that your own house but could you your wife be like the homeowner. I'm like sure I don't know who that attractive white woman is more and so my first show was. We pitched it and my wife at the time. Tiffany who duly Enos Tiffany was the homeowner. I was the contractor and I faked the whole thing like Hollywood sakes it meaning. I really led the landscape and I directed the landscape. But I had to look like I was a builder so I just put on my buddies nail bags. I made him. Who was the actual builder? Looked like he was my labor and we all just faked it for television and it worked. That never happened and then the rest of my television career was similar to that. In the sense that it's not faking. It completely faking it. It's like faking. It like improvising. A little bit more so you have to pretend like you're doing a little bit more and you know a little bit more than you actually do until you actually arrive there and you know it because you learned it during that project right. And that's a lot of was totally out so I was watching the format of Yard crashers so you Kinda go and scope out people at home improvement stores places like that or did people come to you. Or what was the? How did you were always going out? Yeah we were always going out to the home. Improvement Stores In northern and southern California it was primarily lowe's because lows was kind enough to turn off their music when we were in the story. Home Depot was like no. You need to come after hours bringing your extras and we're like we don't have that kind of budget so Yeah it was. By the time we got two yard crashers because my first television show was actually a little gardening show called the dirt on dot dot dot like that was the title of my show. I had an ellipse in the title and It was a gardening show and it was really Horticultural Information. Gardening information and it was great but that was a show more geared towards women. Because that's who was watching. Hgtv and DIY network at the time and they don't have those kind of shows much anymore. Now it's all like houses and homes and I love the gardening stuff. I used to go for that. So the gardening shows the problem with them and the reason that they don't exist is that one. The gardening industry is very regional. It's regionalized so like your gardening stores in your area and your garden supply centers. They don't have money for television ADS space. So they're like yeah. We love to be on but no we're not going to pay you for ad sales marketing. Where the real estate industry will pay for as sales marketing. Because it's a huge industry. It has more money and it's nationwide sure. All the regional based gardening elements can't afford television so therefore they're not on TV because that's really where the dollars come from as much as the world would like to think that TV is just about. Entertainment is really about ad sales and marketing. It is if when someone figures that out. Maybe I'll get to have show on television again but until then there's just there's no money in it and I demand quite a bit of money for me to like drop my life and go be on TV everyday well and I wanNA talk to you about that part and I want to bring you know. Let's start a show. I know okay so when you're so the yard crashes show. What was the style of that you would go to lose and you would find someone that had bags of stuff and it looked like they were going home. Mid and my job was talk to everybody. And I have producers with me and producers alike. Pitched THEM. We're going to go home with them. They Look Great. They will be great on. Tv They were watch this. Is it true? They really were Strangers then they weren't set up it was. It was a mix so really. My job was talked to everyone. And typically the producers would set me up and they would have a ringer in there. Or a few ringers in there. But the ringers weren't guaranteed to be able to get their yard done. It was really. Whoever was the best that day on camera and a lot of times? It was the ringers. And sometimes it wasn't and there are people that they found where ringers are sent over to the store. There's somebody who got the inside skinny that we were going to be there A lot of times we would do someone's yard and so producers would call them and say. Hey we're going to get the story if you have any cool friends like yourself you know looking at people who can talk on camera would be great cinema store so it doesn't mean they're going to get chosen but the producers always want to make sure that there were plenty of people to choose from so they want to on the other side television. I understand this because you don't want a dead fish. I don't know what else determined to use. But you don't want a real camera. I do want that on camera because that person is hilarious. Because that's going to give me something the play off of so. I always preferred sons coming out I always preferred real life oaks and I couldn't stand the ringers. But the bottom line was it was my job to really figure out. Who are you and why should you be the one? I think I'M GONNA move gone for a while there. He's well lit. So that's what happens. The Sun comes up over my house in the morning It's really bright. I love it. He's really high on a hill to over there. I liked it behind him. You will see. There's a ravine right. Isn't that Cameron? Park is pretty cool. I'm on top of the hill. My Front Yard faces the Sacramento Valley. But there's all these trees in the way and then the backyard looks out towards Tahoe in the SIERRAS paydays gorgeous. Yeah Yeah it's beautiful there okay. So now you're doing your television show and are you loving it. Are you feeling like did you ego or you? Kinda cocky jail. Women's television helps you to be come a little more plumpness. I mean you have people coming around taking your food orders and Limos picking you up at the airport and get your name on it and treating you like royalty and they pay you reasonably well and So it does it does all go to your head and then people are like you know how people talk about folks in Hollywood like. You should see what he eats. I mean it's just crazy and I was vegetarian at the time and people would like to talk about my diet and I'm like so wait a minute. You don't allow me to go feed myself because I can't leave the set. I can't go pick up my own food. And now you're GonNa take my order and then you're GonNa ridicule me for what I ordered because this is how I eat. Wow this is interesting. Accusing you of being a diva and right requiring these fancy things have a special diet and you have to send someone else to go. Get your food. Because they won't let you go feed yourself now. You are a dealer right now. You're hanging man but also have noticed on the film sets is everybody wants to have a story about the star so they wanna be able to say like. Oh He's terrible. Yes they're gonNA make a news story that they're close to you so yeah so. I gave him a few stories Television was fun for me. to be able to do what you do for a living what you love to do. What's your hobby in which your livelihood and to be able to make good money for that and be recognized no matter where you go what plane you jump off of what train you walk off of what car you get out of. That's pretty cool these days and the guy who walks around people look at me and they're like Hey. I know you used be on TV. That's cool it's coke to that now. Do you feel bad like. Was that a fall from some. Did you feel like Oh shit. I don't know who I am now. I will lose yourself..

What We Inherit: Marie Kondo and the Security of Stuff

"Parents are preparing to remodel my childhood home. They want to add a room to the house. So that my mom's mom my paw-paw can stay with them. She's been in and out of the hospital and at ninety three. The family doesn't think she can live on her own anymore. The first and last time we remodeled our house was sixteen years ago. And I'm pretty sure that's the last time or house was D- cluttered at any in-depth way since then. My mom has made several attempts to clean the house. But it's never really worked now that my mom's busy taking care Paul. I thought I should fly home to help. Assess the situation okay. So this is the most this what we're looking at right now. Is the most thing that gives me the most headache when I come home. What are we looking at mom and are standing in the living room looking? Glass Window that spans. The back wall and overlooks an enclosed patio inside there are cardboard boxes plastic bins plants. An old fish tank and a bunch of other stuff large clear plastic sheets cover the boxes and another sheet for some reason is taped to the ceiling. How many would you say that? There's in patio. Oh some of the some empty boxes but how do you? Why did you because I don't have time to go? Charging the go on the cops can so they put it in here? Just get away from my side and it's also kind of an eyesore eyesore. I mean is is so I I would have WANNA clean up a couple of time. I tried to let them know is paper cannot just toss it. I had to look at by details a lot over the sweat a lot. Even when there's a task at hand like cleaning our house my mom always has to multitask. Since I'm only visiting California for short while I thought we would be able to spend the weekend decluttering instead. Mom had other plans money doing. I'm pure and the ginger could make some Sephora Papa and knife family. Whenever anyone sick we make soup. It's something that my papa always does. But since she sick herself it's my mom's job to make and deliver it to her. Which is why I guess. Mini cleaned up pasta sauce jars. That mom's saved over the years are finally coming in handy. Mom is the Middle Child. She's the third five she and three of her siblings emigrated from China to Hong Kong to Sacramento California with Paul when my mom was just eleven when I was growing up. That's all I really knew like a lot of other children of immigrants. I knew a lot about my mom's immigration story while also knowing nothing everything she told us was very matter of fact. Papa sacrificed a lot and worked in sweatshops. So you and your brother have to study hard. Mommy had to take care of her younger siblings. So you and your brother are lucky. You don't have those responsibilities. Are FAMILY HAD LITTLE MONEY. So we had to save everything. And even after my mom escaped the Clutch SA- poverty moved out of Papa's house and started a family of her own. She held tight to this rule. Anything that came into our house rarely left so we did toss something out. I mean not top. We put in a box and then we put it in the uncle Terry and he says garage okay so so you didn't technically throw away anything we when you were modeled. We was in a hurry so he everything that box. We originally remodeled the house. When I was ten I guess I was so young that I never realized what my mom's main cleaning technique was putting things in boxes and shoving them into my aunt and uncle's garaged. Okay what happened to the VOX? After year we moved to think that in so some of the box be opened up. Nba Use it and some of the box. Do in the in the patio thing. Yeah so can you. The patio is filled with boxes from our first remodel. But also things for my dad's parents my union and yeah from when they passed away many years ago aside from the patio. Our House as a whole is just so full of things even before we planned this newer model to add a room for Papa. My Dad and I had been trying desperately to help my mom. Clean her closet. We thought we could start small before tackling the whole house after Marie condos the life. Changing magic of tidying up was released and translated into English in two thousand fourteen. My Dad bought a copy for mom a Christmas present. Murray condos hopeful osophy is that if an object to spark join you. You should get rid of it. I thought that there was no way that all the things in my parents house could possibly spark that much joy. I was hopeful that reading this book with somehow enable both of my parents to turn into something worthy of hgtv show but simply put it. Hasn't okay well. So so dad bought you this book. The Mary Condo Book for Christmas copiers. We use did you. Did you read it? Sure did I did. Did you learn anything from it? You Go Clo- make it nicely and I love this. I kept it and I found out. I love a lot of close i. That's why we did make it like that but the problem is one. I had too many close to the way they set out after two. We have our mess up again. That the purpose of that is you have to keep it up every day. And I don't have time to do that. I don't but I don't have done it before. That's when they don't have like five pair of jeans ten pair you know or they have won. T shirt I had twenty one t shirt male one of my friends too gene. Naturally he could do it I have. I do have to go over my plant pans now. I have pobably thirty pair or more clearly. The MARIKANA book didn't drastically changed my mom's cleaning habits and because I live on the other side of the country for my parents. I can't be there to help clean every step of the way so I thought that having my mom watch Marie condos new Netflix. Show tidying up with. Murray condo would provide her with some tips aerial Bernstein a professor and journalist whose parents fled to Cuba then to the US refugees from Eastern Europe also thought that when she told her mother about the show You know we watched episode or two of the show together and then we went to try to do some of the Actual tightening and it's just really hard for her You know it's just very difficult to to think about getting rid of things You know my mom is living in the US now for for fifty years so it's not necessarily that she's not used to American culture. But I think that I think that just about legacy of having to to give things up almost sixteen when she came to the US. And I think that's for her. They're still idea that giving up something that's very integral unimportant. Throughout my mom childhood anything that could possibly get a second or third or tenth use did but I never really contended with the idea that this history this life of immigration impacted my own childhood as a kid I really resented how're cabinets overflowed with tupperware or how. We had an entire room in our house dedicated to storing stuff that I thought was junk photo albums. My Dad's records and broken record player kitchen gadgets. I was always embarrassed that we couldn't just get rid of things like other families. Why you think it's so hard for you with stuff like everything I buy like it. So that's why why would I taught away the thing that I you know. I like okay. Let's talk about some of the things that you allowed things. You have a lot of your tupperware though. Oh my mom has an obsession with tupperware. It's mildly unhealthy. When I was in elementary school she's to sell Tupperware to friends and coworkers but mostly to herself so she could get rewards points and get even more tupperware. Oh I love tougher billy. I do why because I don't know because I am over my end. Shoo Shoo Shoo introduced me to upper. Because you make a lot of cookie Dune a holiday and she put it inside a separate and she just eat it you know and give it to friend and so I think from there on I found out you know. That's good to use tupperware. This is the first time my mom has mentioned the story to me. Despite knowing tidbits about mom's immigration she never talked about her early life in California and any emotional sense. But it's something I've always wondered about. Why do you think that we have so much stuff? Because it'll be good furniture and those they last a long time and then Miko Shah Gobi. -CATION BE BY A souvenir and which I haven't done lately. Yeah Yeah but but all those good we cannot just toss it and you not quite sure what my mom means by good. No one in the house uses those things anymore but saying something is good has been excuse for not getting rid of a lot of our

"Wow and I was like set my resume and got the job. A girl had broken her leg on vacation. Ecuador thing and she's he needed a replacement and so I just kind of like went up and I look and I fell back in love with television so hard. What my little spirit needed at that And so lived in the production office like with Tucker Smith and you literally live there and we slept in the Peo- rooms easier commute New York right but it was a blast. It was just yeah show. Big Sound stage was very different than trading spaces. That was before your son. This is before my but the reason why it's important as I went and took that job in New York and I made all these new contacts so fast forward baby working in Philly taken weird jobs not aligning and then. I look at my husband that day. And he's like I'm like what are we going to do? I got to do something you know we got I have to make. Some money is not gonNA feed himself. Maybe needs to show. Let me just reach out to people on. See if there's anything available maybe we can convince someone to travel me somewhere. We can get out of Philly for the winter because he got like a toddler Alfie Freezing cold I'm like let's see and it was like that week right after I left that horrible job and sent some emails and Tucker Smith who had worked with on design star was like yeah. I'm doing this show called brother versus brother in Las Vegas. I would love to have you interviewed for the job and got it now. That property brothers already been a hot property. At that point they premiered in two thousand eleven here in the United States today and brother versus brother. I came on season three seasons one and two were kind of like a competition show where they were like mentoring teams but season. Three was the first time that they went head to a head to head. So you've been working with the property brothers for awhile off and on since that. Yeah almost every single winter since two thousand fifteen doing that show and so tell us some things that we don't know about drew and Jonathan. I wish there is like so much juice by you and Laura. Nobody's got anything bad to say about them okay. I don't need anything bad but tell me something that we wouldn't expect. They're more fun in person. I wish I could be like a Harris the dirt I now I mean it's actually really nice like they're the kind of guy that you get a video of them singing. You happy birthday on your birthday. I know they just signed my kid's birthday perfect. They're not perfect human power. They would they have a really good family. Their families amazing. Yeah Jim Joanne. I'm like throwing my family. Yeah like they're great like I duNNo. They really put family first. They put each other. I have amazing relationship with each other. They're good communicators with each other. They're good to their people so they've become this empire and produced the show as well so talk about how that factors into them as talent like are they more hands on in terms of the production part of it you know like how does that work. They definitely are involved. I mean I would say overall. It's a really positive thing there collaborator. Yeah you know it can be really dicey right. You got your your talent who were also on the production company and are also executive producers of the show with you and that could maybe not be ideal right but I you know their ideas are always really good and the like St Holes. Maybe that you didn't see. And they know their brand better than anyone else so what they say usually brings a lot to the table. Sometimes I'll be like. Hey Man I'm I'm trying to figure out this and they'll be like Oh. Yeah we'll just do that and you're like Oh yeah that's perfect. Of course yeah. I think that's rare. I'm really great the really smart. Yeah they're definitely like future focused very ambitious very ambitious but good hearted. They're Canadian. Yeah now I do feel like that. Earn easing yeah right now I believe. When have you ever met an Asshole Canadian? Oh they're out there but Lorne michaels and kind of from what I've heard they're just lovely lovely. Humans feel grateful to have a working relationship with them. And I'm grateful that I've been able to spend so much time with them and call them friend along with CO worker like refunds. I love that so when you went out to vegas you brought you brought the family and that kind of started this adventure lifestyle and so at this point how will was Oscar. And like were you talking about okay. How are we going to do this? Like what's going to be our new life. Yeah Oscar to when we left Philadelphia. We've kind of already decided that we wanted to homeschool before we decided to hit the road. We weren't going getting ready to put him in preschool or anything like that. We knew that he was going to be home with US anyway. So it really opened up opportunity because you thought we could just be anywhere does that. Is the education right like you could road school? Your kid which is like the journey is the learning. Is that what it's car when we went to lunch? You said this philosophies called something but it wasn't I mean there's many ways that you call it like. Yeah some people call it like experiential learning or no soling or unschooled. Act schooling basically. We have a curriculum for him. We let him experience the world and have trust in him that he's innately curious and let him leave his way in his education so when a kid too right which is when you sort of decided this. How do you know what kind of kid he's going to be like if it was up to my daughter and by the way this will be her dream come true? She's do tick Tock all day. She's not going to be like. Let's go to the museum and read a book. Well you're still apparent right. He's two years old so much of an opinion. So you're like we're GONNA go playground. We're going to go science museum. We did all that to do. You know what I'm saying and and yet and you could argue. Maybe because of all the school they fight back you know what I mean. I don't know he doesn't know what it's like to go to school right. And so how does he experienced that? What's it like for him? I mean he's a smart kid he's a quote unquote normal kid in the world. Like how does he? He knows kids go to school. Kids also don't because he hangs out some you know. So what does he say about it? I think he likes IT I. It's hard because he doesn't know different so he really can't quantify experience right and it's just like he doesn't know any different than getting up and packing up every six months you know. It sounds so sad I know in some ways it is either going to be like the most amazing thing and he'll be so grateful for it can be like years of deep therapy pay for it. Probably both there's a lot of pluses and minuses By think for us it was important to be together and I think that the family aspect of it of us being a unit was more important and then with the Internet and everything like then the education would follow and so on his own he just became curious about reading and he taught himself everything. Thank God so far. He knows math and reading. Creasing are they're required state requirements. So we are on paper are I. I'm a resident of Texas blood. I well I needed a place to send mail so when we left Philly. We rented our house out on airbnb and we couldn't have our mail sent there anymore and so we're like well. What are we gonNA do so we found this? Rv Club and we have an address in Texas and it gives the PO box. It's a street address. The United States Union Street address so and That's my legal residents and so. How does that correlate with his education? Well Texas doesn't have any surprising so they're like slap you know about like good luck in like okay like carry a gun. I know I mean it's amazing in that way that you have the freedom to do that. It's a little scary sometimes because there's probably kids who do need some is on them right. I'm sure yeah but for us. It's been wonderful. Since we never ENRO- enrolled him. I mean I could deep dive on homeschooling laws. But really he's under whatever jurisdiction of where he is. I six months or more so each state has their own separate homeschooling law. So you have to follow that of what you're at. Does he like the adventure? Does he like that? There's always a new city a new adventure. I mean he's a yes I think so I he says so. And he hasn't complained yet He's an excellent road. Tripper will be like a seven or eight hour day. He'll be like Oh that was nothing and I'm like. Wow how did you just say that I well? He's eight yeah he definitely? We spent a lot of time in New Orleans last year and we did enroll him in like a little kind of I. Called the hippy. School but You know he misses his friends but the same same time like yesterday. He was at Knott's Berry farm with his new friend aiden and he's at home school coop today. And with a gaggle of kids and then he's probably really good at making friends. Yeah I mean he's like where's the beating heart? Hi I'm Oscar. I know it's awesome. That's so great so then in terms of how you look at the next five to ten years with him. I guess ten till He. He's not gonNA maybe well. That's right. Exactly it's history and you better go like you're staying with us. You know I guess. In certain ways you have no restrictions. I guess the question is for you. You know we talked about this little at lunch. Like show running is a hard physically. You know it's like how long do you? How do you see your career going in terms of you've been doing these home shows you start you leave the La in a month? You go back to Pittsburgh ride to do. Say what's the show naming? I'm going to do a show with Leeann Steve Ford Avenue title this year. But yeah and you become sort of defacto hero show runner for HDTV. If you listen to my lauren rich podcast. I think he's specifically names. You because you're just so great while they're so great you've saved many shows that I know for a fact for many production companies so I mean come in well I think it's you know there's a lot of different kinds of show runners. I think when you get somebody who's specifically good at this genre really gets it. You hold onto that person for dear life so I get why they treasury you. I treasure them back. So I didn't Treasury Lauren. Right back and he's so great and I love them to bits. So do you see yourself doing more home? Like what's the? How do you envision the next five to ten? I don't know I it'll be interesting to see how television changes right in the next five years like there's no guarantees in our business right now. I look at myself as a viewer. And I'm an I'm asking questions right like I love instagram stories. Yeah favorite shows a youtube channel. You know what youtube channels do you like? Oh they're all traveled. Really really yes always always goes back to travelers school. There's these sailing. These sailors sailing Lavar Gabon. Such beautiful footage such great storytelling. Their life is so captivating they just sailed Greta Thunberg across the Atlantic so she get to Spain that was down my God even on Youtube forever. The millions of subscribers like. Wow so you know there's something into that. I I don't know what the future holds. I love doing home improvement shows. I think it's something that I find interesting. It's always changing. The houses are to me the houses that we tack on the shows are characters of their own. And I feel really gratified in like bringing these houses back to life and you know being like helping to curry the story along of like our.

"Hiring isn't easy but there is one place you can go where hiring is simple in smart that place is ziprecruiter where growing businesses connect to qualified candidates candidates try it for free at Ziprecruiter. Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter. The smartest way to hire consumer reports recently outlined wind what most of us already knew that the fees being charged by cable companies are one rate in the adds another on the final bill you know it's similar to many travel aval websites which advertise come on nightly roommate but then. Ding you later with hidden resort fees and taxes so when I wrote an article about it this week for USA Today Day I asked Jonathan Schwab as the senior policy counsel for consumer reports what we could do about those fees and he told me there was only one option cut the cord and the fees would go away. I have some words of advice as well. Check your cable bill right now because when I took a look doc my bill was a steady in reasonable one hundred eight dollars and ninety one cents monthly until this month when it jumped to da Da da a hundred hundred and fifty four dollars a whopping five hundred and fifty two dollar yearly increase frontier communications my Los Angeles provider jacked up the Combo Internet. TV Rate from seventy five to ninety stopped offering HBO for Free Which Ballooned Up to twenty dollars and threw in a nice broadcast TV of twelve bucks to watch local channels and taxes went up to really when I called frontier complain they pretty much refused to budge saying that I had a promo rate that no longer was valid so basically I two choices cancel service altogether and re sign up under my wife's name which would now oh get me to a promotional one hundred thirty dollars monthly for what we had or disconnect altogether so I picked up a fifty dollar. You're watching your Internet service rate from frontiers. La rival spectrum and I have a router arriving hopefully today fees spectrum itself is notorious for digging us with extras like the ten dollar self installation fee they are charging me to plug in a router and to call them confirm that I indeed have service. The alternative is fifty dollars to have a technician. Come to the house and do the work and for cable subscribers. It's good to know that they do that. Twelve dollar monthly broadcast as well and it's growing at thirteen dollars and fifty cents monthly later this month I signed up for the one year plan so hopefully I got fifty dollars a month for that one year. I'll also be adding youtube. TV The Cable Alternative Service to replace the cable channels this this is fifty dollars monthly which is pretty hefty but the wife will kill me if I can't get her news channels and PBS which is coming to YouTube td later this year so so in the end. I'm going to be paying one hundred dollars monthly instead of one hundred and eight dollars monthly which really isn't much of a savings at all but I'm not about to give frontier the satisfaction this faction of nearly six hundred dollars hard in dollars every year for no good reason read your cable bills everybody cutting the cord fans no. I could've skipped up YouTube TV or slaying or playstation Vue or who live TV and just bought an antenna the pickup local channels in really saved but if you're a fan of cable able channels like FX AMC HGTV CNN ESPN and on and on you got to pay the Piper with one of the cable TV alternative services I I could live without them and just watch regular Youtube Netflix Amazon and be the happiest guy in town but I live alone.

Actor Alan Alda reveals Parkinson's diagnosis

"Flynn, six hundred and ninety two point one FM It's morning, news it is six forty six eight temperature Of sixty nine degrees I noticed. Some high schools are having some. Football scrimmages force Goodman, that, means it's It's back in the air college football teams opening up. Their practices today So one month away from the real? Deal, and but but you said high school high schools like approaching quickly yeah When their seasons get here they start the middle of August and hope hope the weather that we've seen for the last few days will continue. To stick, around as those young men get out there and start, conditioning and. Working out, and that sort of stuff because again that can. Just be brutal on anyone who's outside athletes construction workers I mean? That's I did look down the road the other day. In the the guys who put the roof on the house I'm like man if they'd just waited a few days because they were doing it right when I mean during that brutal. Heat wave, few days they'd have been better off so yeah well, it is. It is, man It is nice to have these temperatures like we've got right now for those working outside I, know it's a it's going. To help, them, be more. Productive and actually Heaven forbid actually. Be a little comfortable, while doing by the way numbers ran from shark week Which I. Didn't watch any I didn't watch any of it this year it was down it's my. Fault then they averaged one point million in total. Viewers on the Discovery Channel is down still. They, nearly doubled CNN's average, of eight hundred ninety, one thousand Melissa different. Times n., n. viewers well actually with those numbers it's more like minnows but that's. Another story Fox News twenty fifth consecutive month is the most watched network in cable in July Beating, out the the others, FOX was first in primetime. With an average of about two point four. Million viewers and. Finished first in. The total day around one point four million Hannity and Tucker Carlson or the top two. Programs for the month and and then MSNBC's Rachel. Meadow came in third with the appropriate named. Rachel, meadow show MSNBC overall, was second behind Fox, News channel in primetime. But then, in total day they dropped to third behind Nickelodeon believe it or not Out of the victory cable networks CNN placed tenth in prime. And seventh in the total day CNN. Lawsuit HGTV USA history channel Discovery Channel hallmark channel and I think shape with Martha, on public access perhaps or maybe after in that last one I missed that one but FOX. Business network beats CNBC who had a twenty three year low in, business day viewers for the month I haven't I in all fairness to, both of those business networks I, have a tough time watching those all those. Tickers and things scrolling or just distracting they're just really hard to to watch but so if if if you're into if you're a TV junkie. Our news junkie then those are the numbers that have been, have been coming in It would have probably helped shark shark NATO Oh I don't know about that, if it had, come out during the month a different channel but maybe they would have fed off. Of each other fed off of? Each. Other did you say that on purpose no now this and this. Was the thirtieth? Anniversary to of shark? Week wasn't that inter twenty fifth or thirtieth I mean I I know they. Were like celebrating some monumental anniversary thirty thirty okay in doing it and look and I I know people right now I, got, a, friend of mine and he's like oh man I got this recorded on the DVR, because he works. A lot and he's like I got this I can't wait to watch, this and I just didn't really think about it much this year, not, that, I was ever a big shark week fan and you know you wanna you wanna, give me a. Story about sharks giving jaws all right That's all you need right there. We're gonna need a bigger boat, did you. Hear about Alan, Alda I. Don't know if you heard okay. What's that he was Hawkeye yeah. Yeah yeah he is Oh wow just lost voice like. Al. Michaels or? Al Michaels has. A. Voice, like. Alan Alda Alan Alda. Has, come out. And said that he is he has. Been diagnosed with. Parkinson's disease oh man yeah he's eighty. He's I didn't realize he's eighty two he still doesn't he doesn't look eighty two to me I know he's been around forever. With, with. Mashan and he's been lots of all kinds of Malaysia ever since he left mash But. He said he was diagnosed three and a half years ago says he. Has, a full life and? He still loves to do his podcast to. Act and give talks and Ellen all, does a podcast really yeah, I can. Only imagine yeah he is a wild eyed left-winger yeah. I can only imagine what he talks. About I. Bet, he added. He'd suffers from TD s worse than. A lot of. Folks out there yeah but you know. What he does give some great advice in his he he put out a tweet says if you get a diagnosis keep moving Yeah. I love that good for him you know unlike our friends on. The, left when when someone on the left get sick I don't I'm happy and I don't celebrate and I don't you know wish the worst upon them I'd I'd give me he's a human being he's someone, who's. Been, in certain roles I. Never, watched mash but he's been in. Certain, roles in movies that light and you know. I don't wish this. Upon anybody so I would I do offer him prayers and I do. Hope, that it's something that? Does not hold him back eighty two years. Old, there's a lot of things that, can sneak up and get, you yeah And, you know so if if this, is the worst. Thing going on right now, it's something he can live with and and hopefully continue to do what he loves Yep absolutely. We wish we wish him well and a long healthy fight Parkin's. Yes And again unlike. Some or other, friends on the? Other side who would be happy you. Know if they. Found out rush. Had this or something and it would celebrate and dance in the, streets and late night comedians would make fine but that's the way they react the. Tolerance, side.
