Because you're you look confused all tie. No no i mean that's all about. I like to goof off. But i mean really before. We even started talking about this. You mentioned that you're also from texas. And i think that is wonderful. Because like i've been interviewing a lot of diverse creatives of backgrounds and zoe's like okay. That's awesome does meaning people from other world but what about here in texas and do you think in your life. I numbers making up words. I i was like in your love.

Let me rewind again. You are a creative content writer up there right yes howard. How did you start writing like what. What's the origin of your creative passion. Said i really started in high school. Just wanting to ride more creative Creatively n I was in english class. And i hate writing prompts. That had no meeting. So i started to just Free hand right stuff and they're like oh your writings pretty good. We think you should enter it in a magazine so i entered in the school magazine one apprised etc and. It was a way for me to be therapeutic back then. Could to just get your thoughts out of your head onto paper in the creative juices. Just begin flowing in you know one thing led to another and i was riding on and off in. I left it alone for a bit in about. Let's see three years ago. I picked it back up then. Just being going solid and little did i know book was inside of me. What book was that chocolate. Drop in corporate america from the pit to the palace. so this is my lovely or yesterday The front design of. I mean so i mean i want to ask about cover are which i think. It's an interesting subject for authors. How did you design or like Create that particular heart because you see a lot of figures in the foreground Again you show the bargain. Yes yeah yeah like you see like a diverse group of people With one of of bloopers here. Because i i'm i'm on a roll on these different things but i do like the unification of this because this is something that i'm hoping organiser cousin fatal can it is where are you. Oh i thought a cedric. No that's good but is what was the sort of the inspiration behind that book in particular so mainly just talking about inclusion diversity. There's a world in the background to represent that the issues that we face in america can happen worldwide. It's just that we need to be open. An appearance about it. Really talk about the trials and tribulations that a lot of us face whether it's personal or professional than i had people from all nationalities as well as different career feels so different industries to let people know no matter what industry you are in like. We have all went through something in life where we have been slided whether it was through ageism sexism. Racism systemic racism oppression or whatever the case may be. There has been times where we felt like. We did not along due to the way that he would treat it as or reffell like we were overlooked. Because people said okay your resume stand out or we feel like you're overqualified or your underqualified or we're not going to hire you because you're just you know you're not the right fit for the position for whatever reason and then they give you a answering your light what that doesn't make any sense so that's why you see. The diverse group on the cover of the book and the title of the book is called chocolate drop in corporate america which is controversial to sam. But once you really look at the entire cover are in you see okay. The title says this but the cover shows inclusion diversity in it also shows a world. I wanted people to double take in say okay. I wonder what this book is about. Let me pick this book. Up if i get unraveling and then the subtitle is from the pit to the palace because sometimes we have to go through dark seasons in our life in order to appreciate the the brightness and to appreciate the glory days
Defining Moments: Stepping Outside of Your Comfort Zone
"We're looking at those moments. When we are forced to grow by stepping up to me to challenge and stepping outside of our comfort zone these are moments when our character can be tested and challenged to do something that is difficult and uncomfortable. These are defining moments in which god will challenge you and make you uncomfortable sometimes even allowing your discomfort. Why is that. Why would he do that to related reasons number one. You're never uncomfortable. You will never grow just as you only burn fat or grow muscle through the discomfort of working out. You cannot grow emotionally spiritually or intellectually without getting uncomfortable. God knows this. And so god who is provident will allow situations in our lives that lead to our discomfort. This leads to the second reason. God allows us to be uncomfortable. Our character is essential to who we are if we're not actively developing her character sometimes in his mercy and love. God helps us out. We see this clearly played out in the story of jonah. Perhaps you remember jonah and the whale. The book of jonah is a short book in the bible. You can read the whole thing in about fifteen minutes. I encourage you to do so for those of you. Who hear the story of a man in the belly of a whale and find it too fantastic to believe it's helpful to note that many scripture scholars see the book of jona as an allegory. Much like jesus's parables are allegories. The bible is composed of many types of literature. There is history. There is poetry and allegories allegories convey meaning through symbols symbolic and symbolic events. The catholic church believes the bible is inherent in everything. It intends to teach. The bible does not intend to teach that a person can be swallowed by a whale and survive et cetera which may or may not be so it does intend to teach us through this story that no matter how hard joan is tries not to do god's will through struggle in prayer jona finds himself in-in of where god wanted him today. Our passage from jonas started with the word of the lord came to joan a second time which begs the question when it was the first time. Well the first time. God spoke to jona. He ran away. God wants to grow joan as a prophet a leader. After god's own heart a heart full of mercy and compassion as opposed to jonas heart. Joan was hard hearted and judgmental. God told jones to do something that was outside his comfort zone in order to help him grow. Joanna did not want to do it. In fact jona got on a boat and went in the exact opposite direction from where god wanted him when he was sailing in the opposite direction of storm. Hit the boat. Geno was thrown overboard the ship and that's when he was swallowed by the whale. Whatever you think of the story of the whale. The truth of the story is obvious when we resist. God's will and insist on our own way we can end up in some pretty dumb places. Jona finally turns to prayer which is typical for many of us. We turn to prayer as a last resort joan appraise a beautiful prayer. You can find in the second chapter of the book of jonah in response to that prayer. God rescues him and saves him and gives him a second chance to grow. This is good news. Even if you have failed in the past to meet a challenge and grow god will give you other moments other opportunities to step up to the challenge of growing your character. In fact god might keep giving you those moments over and over again until you decide to grow and learn the lesson. He wants to teach you. There will be perhaps different circumstances. Different conditions different people but the same opportunity for growth. The story of jonah is a story of second chances. God gave joan a second chance and he wants jona to do the same for others. By speaking to the people of nevada. On god's behalf
Helping Your Child With An Unwanted Pregnancy As A Pro-Life Parent
"I wanna dig into a couple of components. What you've told us one your parents. You've mentioned that it wasn't as bad as what i thought it would be with. My parents Their parents maybe today who are listening right now that later going to get a call from their pregnant teen daughter or they're gonna see them at dinner and this discussions going to happen. What kind of counsel do you give to parents about how to react if this happens. Well i just believe that guide is the creator of all life and so he knew what he was doing when He blessed this girl woman with an with a baby even if it was unplanned by her. This baby was planned by god. And so we've seen girls that are almost about to kill themselves suicide or on drugs or just going down the wrong path and all of a sudden find out. they're pregnant and this is the thing that kind of gets them back on the right track and so to look at the bigger picture of what god might we doing here and leading his daughter back to him and then the other aspect of what. You said that really catches my attention as your christian convictions. I mean you're nineteen eighteen nineteen at the time. And so you know you're you're getting to the point where that maturity is happening and yet You know when the moment came and of course we understand passions and those things. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about realization. That i'm pregnant and now what do i do you know. Some people may be have never had to walk that difficult decision and even though your church you understand christian values you're pro-life in your heart now. The pressure's on you because you know this the situation and you've got to make this decision. Why do you think it's not automatic. Why do you think the girls are second guessing everything they've been taught for seventeen years eighteen years nineteen years in your case what what is missing in their worldview construct that they even go that direction. Well i think it's two things one as i said before. Fear fear is the biggest reason why women have abortions. You're scared and it does seem like alluring to have a quick fix of z z. Right even though it's a trauma that is a lifelong yes for sure But the other thing is i grew up in church my entire life and i never knew there was a pro-life movement ever. I never knew. I would stay outside abortion clinics with my parents sometimes and we would prey. But i didn't know there were all the resources like i had no idea and i remember when i wrote my first book even writing that book. I didn't think i'm writing a pro-life book stories of girls with unplanned pregnancies and as we started embraced grace. We didn't think i'm going to start a pro. i was like i'm going to help with planned pregnancies. And it wasn't until the first conference. It was actually care net conference which is pregnancy center training conference. They asked me to come speak. And it'll give me a booth in this like an exchange and so in. So we were like how to do some brochures and things and i had never heard of care net. I've no idea. I show up and there are hundreds of booths organizations of people that are ready to assist at a moment's notice for women with unplanned pregnancies. I had no idea that there was that out there. And i think the mainly the church in general is the same way when i talk to people. They've gone to church their whole life. They don't know a lot of them. Don't even know what a pregnancy center is and that's plague the one of the most important things we need in our communities you know. That's the first response team in the churches. The hospital and we gotta have. We gotta know what's all in our communities to help. I think when we talk about with the opening comments that you made in terms of where the churches at these are some great gains over the last forty forty. Five years at the church really has stepped up. It's not the same as nineteen seventy-three. The church is far more sophisticated and far better equipped to help. Young women are share and a woman of any age who's in that position to deal with an unplanned pregnancy and that that is the good news and i encourage you to get engaged with your local pregnancy resource center and volunteer support them financially That's what focus does and there's three thousand four thousand of these clinics around probably right in your neighborhood so look for one and join in the part of it. Most of them are volunteer run. So that's a good thing to do. They do need each one of us.
Much to repair: Bidens first day on the job
"My fellow americans a moment we have all been waiting for the washington yesterday. A new chapter began as joe. Biden was sworn in as america's forty-six resident biden junior do solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute. The inauguration displayed the unique circumstances in which he enters office surrounded by twenty five thousand national guardsmen. The ceremony took place with neither crowds. Nor mr biden's predecessor. But it's still featured some familiar inaugural hallmarks celebrity solos and a stirring poem written for the occasion by twenty two year old. Amanda gorman being american is more than a pride we inherit is the past we step into and how we repair it. We've incoming administration used the moment to project an image of well to choose a word that was often repeated. Unity are miss january day. My whole soul is in this. Bringing america together. Uniting our people unite in our nation. Mr biden takes office. Not just at a moment of disunity. In american politics but also a moment of multiple crises among the population president biden laid out at least four big challenges facing the country. It cologne is economists. Washington correspondent this time of testing. The first is simply containing covid. Nineteen pandemic has been raging for almost a year. Now four hundred thousand. Americans have died in a century virus in silence. Stocks country is taken as many lives in one year as america. Lost in all of world war two efforts to control the virus to vaccinate enough people to generate herd. Immunity have not been going. Well he needs to get ahead on that immediately. The second that he brought up is the economic situation right now. There are ten million fewer americans working than were before the pandemic started. Millions of jobs have been lost. Hundreds of thousands of businesses closed. Another is the crisis of racial justice that we saw erupt over the summer. In protests against police brutality. A cry for racial justice. Some four hundred years in the making moves us the fourth thing that he has to deal with it he emphasized quite a lot is the lack of unity. The feeling of partisan rancor between republicans and democrats. He emphasized that this was a moment for national. Doing this is our historic moment of crisis in challenge. Nudity is the path forward and we must meet this moment. As the united states of america. He acknowledged that although payouts to unity might seem naive. That america still needs to try to do those things i mean. It's a long list that that he got started on almost the second he set foot in the white house yesterday. President biden went to the white house and immediately went to work on a stack of executive orders. I think some of the things are going to be doing them. And there's no time to start like two days so he signed one. That started the process for america to rejoin the paris accords which set emissions targets for countries around the world. He signal that it was the end of the trump era by cancelling funding for the border wall on mexico. That trump had famously promised. He canceled the so-called muslim travel ban for citizens of muslim-majority countries and finally while wearing a mask while sitting behind the resolute desk. Something that president trump had not done. President biden signed an executive order. Mandating the wearing of masks in areas that the federal government had authority that is intended to signal that this is a president that will take cove nineteen on much more seriously and someone who believes unlike the previous administration that it will be primarily the federal government's responsibility to coordinate policy as opposed to leaving it up to the states. Okay but that's comparatively easy stuff. We we know that orders but what about the more complicated stuff that will take congressional backing the first bill that is going to consume the biden presidency is going to be another cove relief measure. It's supposed to amount to two trillion dollars in spending. It includes money for a vaccination drive for testing contact tracing and it includes some economic relief measures. They've signaled that the second big proposal they're going to try to get through. Congress is going to be a infrastructure package based on what he has laid out during the campaign we imagined that it would be also quite big perhaps on the order of two trillion dollars and this would be not only where things like universal broadband and roads and bridges trucial infrastructure. Get their day but also would be the primary vehicle. For president biden's main climate agenda items including massive investment in clean energy research tax credits for wind solar all those sorts of things will probably come in that second bill. Well that's what he wants. But what is he likely to get he. He does have a democratic majority in the house and in the senate but it's by the slimmest of margins so there are two ways that biden can get things through congress. The first is to attract enough republican votes to defeat a filibuster which is basically of rule that allows forty members of the senate to stall any legislation in other route that he has available to. Him is a procedure known as reconciliation. That's a budgetary measure. Which is immune to filibuster and often used by presidents with slim majorities to get some of their policy priorities through. It is a tougher route to take than the normal one. There are limits on what you can do what we've seen so far is that he's not shy away from proposing some of the biggest seeming most ambitious legislation that he can and i think the strategy here is to go big and let it get whittled down as you go through the process of congressional negotiations. And there's still the matter of former president trump's impeachment trial i mean. How do you think that will affect mr biden's ability to agenda going so the main problem with impeachment is that it will take up time on the senate floor because all the senators will have to be present to hear the evidence against former president trump and to decide. Eventually that is floor time. That could be used to confirm. President biden's nominees. The be used to confirm judges that could be used to debate. Legislation the sentence on session that much. So that's the main problem and the biden administrations actually hinted at the fact that they are somewhat worried. That impeachment might take up some of their time. But there's no indication that it is going to be stalled. Seems like it's gonna start relatively soon and probably what what might happen is split sort of schedule where the impeachment trial doesn't take up all the time that the senate has available. It's an understatement. To say mr biden has quite a lot of work to get done here do you. Do you think he's up to it. Do you think he is the man for this moment. Biden comes to office with half a century of experience in washington dc. He comes to office as the oldest man at seventy eight years old to occupy the presidency. He is an elder statesman. He might not serve more than a single term. He sees his role as someone who can turn down the flames of america's partisan warfare right now and he sees himself as a bridge candidate between not only the flanks within the democratic party but some conciliatory republicans right now given the crises. The country faces given the problems of hyper partisanship and mutual antagonism and loathing. You know an attitude like that will make market shift from what we had before coming from the white house so with purpose and resolve we turn to those tasks of our time sustained by faith driven by conviction devoted to one another in the country we love with all our hearts may god bless america and you might be naive to feel optimistic after the events of the last year but i think that there is some grants optimism this
Presidential Pelotons and data accountability
"What can happen if you have a connected bicycle in the white house and this reminds me. This is actually a good thing. I think to think about because we're old enough to remember this. But you know presidents used to get special. Even obama had a special blackberry created for him. It used to be that you didn't have to worry about cybersecurity because the president in his office had his landline phone rate. In the secret service had radios. And it's not like if you need to get in touch with the president you can get in touch with the president right. Well not you or i but someone important and then cell phones came along and everybody was used to posting on twitter and doing their thing and this became a real concern for people who are worried about foreign powers spying on presidential communications and now with the bringing in of connected devices. Maybe not a smart home like i don't think the white house kitted out with philips hue bulbs but a peleton is an entry point into the network so my hunch is i would. I would love for someone to tell me how to secure the peleton in the white house is on its own dedicated network. Maybe that can't touch anything else. I mean i'm trying to think of the ways that this could be bad. And i'm not really a hacker so i don't know but i like that we're thinking about this because we're probably going to benefit down the road as the defense insecurity infrastructure for the us figures out how to secure the stuff that will trickle down to the rest of us. And we'll get new an awesome best practices and the peleton itself. I mean it can track your heart rate at belief certainly detracts the rotations of the the bicycle tyre tyre but flywheel and so on and so forth like you could get in personal health information from if peleton's data was hacked or whatever and that sounds like who cares but really a foreign power could determine that while publicly every the president's in good health etc maybe he isn't and they would know that and that could change some outcomes. I think peleton does is great and we didn't think about this from a security standpoint but my wife wanted it on and we just didn't buy it because it was too expensive for us so we bought a non connected bike for about four hundred dollars and she the peleton digital classes so no data is actually tractor or something like that. And i'm not saying go do this for security reasons. Or that's what biden should do. But that's one way to mitigate it no. I don't think there's any speakers in like i don't know if he needs to watch what he says. He can't talk about microphones. My bad microphones. Right i've ridden a friend's palatine. And i don't recall that but i was also dying by the middle of my ride so i told you including speak. Anyway i'm like. I don't think anyone wants to hear me. Okay so just throwing that out. There is interesting security thing and something like we should all be aware of going forward. And maybe we'll get some new best practices out of this.
Fear of God Leads to Faith in God (Genesis 22:12)
"Genesis chapter twenty two verse twelve. God said do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him for now. I know that you fear. God seeing you of not withheld your son. Your only son for me. These are god's words to abraham as he was willing to sacrifice his son and obedience to god got it said in the very beginning of genesis chapter. Twenty two verse to take your son your only son. Isaac even the emphasis there on. This is the promised son. Your only son take him whom you love go to land of mariah an offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which i shall tell you the very next verse. Says abraham rose early in the morning and did exactly what god said and he went with his son isaac to this altar. He laid him on. Top of the wood reached out. His hand took the knife to slaughter son. That's what i ten says. Immediately verse eleven says the angel lord called him from heaven instead abraham abraham and then we have the verse that destroyed verse twenty. Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him for now. I know that you fear. God seeing you have not withheld your son your only son from me so think about it. What verse twelve clearly teaches us. Is that fearing god. Leads to faith in god. Trust in god with that which is most precious to us. We say that one more time. Fear of god leads to faith in god. Trust in god with that which is most precious to us all throughout this chapter abraham had said god will provide a sacrifice and we know based on james chapter two. That's exactly what this chapter is about in genesis. Twenty two when. James is talking about the relationship between faith and works. James writes in james. Two twenty one was not abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son isaac on the altar. You see that faith was active along with. His works and faith was completed by his works and the scripture was fulfilled. That says abraham believed god and it was counted to him as righteousness and he was called a friend of god. Put this all together. Fear of god leads to faith in god. Trust in god with that which is most precious to us. And it's in fearing god. Like this and trusting god like this that we experienced the depths of friendship with god Don't you want all of these things in your life today. Fear of god alone. Not fear of man or fear of anything in this world. The leads to faith in god. Trust in god with every thing in your life every facet of your life your life itself and everything that is most precious to you in it. You can trust god with fear. God faith in god and a depth of friendship with god not just friendship with any person. This world is wonderful as that is we're talking about friendship with the creator god of this world So we pray. God we want these things in our lives we know that abraham though not perfect in a variety of ways is shown here as a picture of the kind of faith that we want the father of our faith in many ways in so i pray for my life and pray for all those who are listening right now we pray that you would give us a fear of you that leads to fear of nothing else no one else in this world a fear of you reverence for you all of you worship of you leads to faith in you can trust in god. We pray that you'd help us to trust in you with all our heart with everything we have. We trust you with our lives. We trust you with our families would trust you with our futures. We trust you with everything we have. You are infinitely worthy of all of our trust. You are faithful in every way so we put all of our faith in. You gotta help us not to hold anything back. Help us not to have any area of our life where we withhold trust from you gotta pray for fear of you faith in you and in the process got we say we want to experience the depths of friendship with you even today. God i just pray this over everyone listening right now. No matter what they are doing today. Tomorrow god help them to do it. Infringed ship with you. Tell them to walk in close relationship with you. Gotta help us to experience the fullness of what you've made possible for us in sending your son your only son jesus to die on a cross for
Refounder: The Essential Longevity Plan for Every Small Business
"What we've all heard the term founder and many of us our founders of small businesses. But what is a re founder and can you be one of them. Help us with that. Is patrick colletti. Who's a leadership at organizational cultural expert champion for founders and author of the upcoming leadership leadership. Book rebounder patrick. Welcome to the show. Thank you invite me here so been surviving during this pandemic. We've been making lots shifts Founder should you know finding the opportunities and being candid and honest about what needs to change. And as emily it's been It's been terrific so we all know. When a founder isn't a lot of us are founders. What's a refunder. Well refound herships the same john as founders though is expressed in different ways so let founders visa visionaries they take a different approach But they're the turnaround artists. These men and women who reimagine existing but broken structures and aimed to improve them. So i like to think of them. In a way as very practical magicians taking the raw materials of the company a culture or even life and transforming them into something more meaningful so put more simply be founders used their magic to create something better from something broken and founders typically start and founders two to draw a parallel but a difference they really start with nothing a create something so refunders. Really take something that's broken and make it better so our refound. There's always someone from the outside or kenny founder. become a refunder or they can't because as they say you can't read the label when you're inside the jar. I absolutely believe that people can change. So i would say while it is not that typical that founders then become a founder. I say they are where when given the right stimulus whether it's a crisis Something with their business with their family. Something dramatic happens in other book point to the fact that he to change that they change in history shown that that absolutely can happen so give us give us some examples of history where outside persons coming been rebounder and actually found gold in something that perhaps the founder had given up on shirt yet. This is it's actually quite common. You know there's a. There's a life cycle for those enterprises. That are fortunate enough to grow passed. A few million dollars inevitably after a few years. Some form of entropy occurs and so whether it's the founder that gets them stimulus that recognizes something needs to change more likely somebody within the business typically visit trigger now as you know with small businesses Most of them don't crush that two three four five our they do the need for change. Change die becomes pretty critical and so virtually any business today. That is over. Ten million dollars in revenue has had to make some pivots that all would point to having founder in the business. Now that may be a middle manager. That's pointed out that the product line needs to change that could be a co founder Or it may be found as well. Yeah it's interesting because you see very few businesses. They're able to go from nothing to billions of dollars. I mean the michael dell's of the world. The bill gates the world's although bill gates had partners to typically the skills that you need to actually get something started are not the same skills to grow it past at least in my case past ten million dollars it also indicates that there are not a lot of one companies right and so while you know what what gets you to. The party isn't the thing that will necessarily keep you there. It speaks to the fact that you know you may be one trick Business and you may have one. Particular product speaks to an audience. But that doesn't necessarily create a real thriving. Enterprise that's just a product you know. It's it's interesting to me because what you're saying is the refounded necessarily a partner or owner in the business. It's just some kind of person that works with you. That's a catalyst absolutely so founder doesn't need to be an owner in the business. In fact when. I speak to college students or young professionals one of my encouragements to them is every employer wants this. Every employer may not provide a fertile ground for but once they once you share on these your founder characteristics. They want you there. You're gonna be the future of the business and there's go ahead. Yeah there's really four steps in so one could argue. There's four kinds of founders instead of behavioral models that are that are linked to this. But i think the easiest way to think about it is every founder follows four typical patterns in the first one is a refunder. Isn't afraid to take silver. Look at hard reality and when you think about those folks that are on the front lines and maybe do in hand to hand combat in sales part of that has to do with ignoring problems sometimes and ignoring the knows that you get to keep going another day and so that may not fit well with somebody who is focused and taking a sober look at a hard reality. And that's not. Take a shot at salespeople at all Salespeople are very important. i'm a salesperson. We all need to sell. We're going to be successful but that particular behavior taking a sober look at hard realities. Takes a very special kind of person in personality. The second step is identifying. What's broken and you think about that. In terms of your strength finders. The level of conscientiousness that takes imprecision to find what's actually broken. And then to to take a phrase from the book which is taken from william faulkner to kill your darlings because candidly most of us to have too many options and it's difficult to close doors and so if you can be wise enough to kill your darlings and selectively focus then you go to the third step of of being founder. And that's where you imagine a davis in bold new possibilities and even if those possibilities seem remote it just for a moment juxtaposed that with step one which is not being afraid to take a sober. Look hard realities those people in particular. Think about your conscious. Cfo or an accountant that may fit into that category than imagining audacious bold new possibilities. And so that's the third step and then the fourth is refunders spring to action and the key here is execution and so we all of her execution is key. But there's there's an important asterik here. And that is that they have to execute by creating better realities for people those in their communities in the world large because just executing to get it done that may work for a short period of time. But unless there's a just cause a real purpose that re founding effort walton fail in. I don't really want to sell short. How difficult this is really for. A founder because founders are used to doing it themselves right so have you found that founders may not want to refound your because they say i can do it. I can turn around or they don't wanna work with someone because they don't want to miss something's wrong absolutely image part of the human condition and so therefore it's just a reflection of the organizations institutions that we run whether they're not for profits for profits. So yes i mean i think this is part of the the human condition and and really i think the bigger question is how large of an impact do you wanna have. Do you want to have a comfortable life with a very small business. That teeters on the edge or do you want to run. The kind of enterprise that has global impact or create flourishing for hundreds of thousands of people. We're talking with patrick colletti. He's the author. A book called founder. I think it's difficult for a lot of founders. Patrick because there's so much ego tied up in their business that change is difficult. I'm running my next book. Is called change masters and how hard it is for people to actually change. Unless they're in incredible pain and they have no choice. I'd found that sometimes the best opportunities arise during a moment of crisis and it might be a giant burden on your heart broken relationship or just a corporate hot mess. But it's in those moments that i think you can trigger a great refounding

Business Lessons with Michael Teoh
"Michael is served fortune. Five hundred companies across forty one countries. Michael take a minute and filling for the tidbits about your law. Thank you so much andrew into all of you listening to this podcast and watching our interview right now lonzo doctrine that's a piece greeting from where i'm from kuala lumpur malaysia nestled in the heart of asia. Just in between singapore and thailand. A little bit tidbit about me is that i'm very grateful. Where during one of my productivity trainings. That i deliver to leaders around the world. It happened in malaysia. On one fine day. Web president barack obama actually visited my training. The president came for half an hour and it left me pleasantly surprised. Though i was shocked and i didn't know what to say for the next one minute. It was an awkward silence but the president gave his signal that i could carry on and then i carried the session on for the next thirty minutes and then the president came up took the stage gave his speech and we had a great time to connect with each other he gave a very very kind testimonial to the work that i was doing for the valla people because at the end of the day andrew really. I believe it's people like us many hardworking people out there watching this interview right now. Who's listening in. We are the ones that make the world goes round. We are the ones that put food on the table and we are the ones that really the movers and shakers many of us unsung heroes again. Thank you again andrew. And that's one of the reasons why i wanted. I was so excited to agree to be given this opportunity even to appear on your show again. Thank you andrew fantastic. You know. it's an interesting thing. Michael that as a financial guy. A lotta times. I spent my and i've spent my years during the performance of companies. And you know what. I've come to learn over. The years is that financial success has to do with two things number one the leader of the company if it's a bad leader in a bad direction that they choose. It's very hard to have strong. Financial success true so number one is the leader and the number two thing. is that what i've learned. In my opinion you don't need superstars. You need good qualified people but what you need is coordination amongst the management team. That's if you have a good leader and coordination amongst the land management team. That is the secret sauce. And so for all those people listening out there. If you think you're gonna find it in a financial statement. It's not there. Because remember as i always teach in my teaching of people in management i always say and particularly to my finance students finance adds no value. And what i mean by that is that finance is a mirror it is a reflection it is a way. It is a feedback mechanism for management team to judge the impact of their decisions. So i like people to understand particularly financial people. I know a lot of financial friends. Listen to this podcast. I want financial. People always keep in mind. That finance is a supporting function. Just as much as human resources and others and if you go into business only with a focus on finance you'll never get there but if you go into business with focus on management leadership strategy in building a team. That works together. It's unstoppable spot on andrew spa and also. I think you know the other thing about i. I often say to small and medium-sized businesses. Never fear giant businesses. Yeah they are so messed up. They can't easily coordinate. The activities of their management team and of the different business units a very difficult thing to do and they've also fallen prey to the the idea of. Kpi's in the sense that everybody has a key performance indicators that they're pushing and all the sudden you have everybody working hard in their own area but few people thinking about how to coordinate that effort and that's why the coordination of the management team is what really can said a small medium sized business apart and make an impact anyways. Those are those. What's your i mean. You've you've done a lot with large as well as small and medium-sized businesses. What are some of the takeaways. Let's just say there's there's listeners here to do have small and medium-sized businesses. What are some of the things that you've learned over the years. I believe one of the things. Andrew that i've just had the fortune to work with is with fortune. Five hundred companies as you mentioned across forty one countries and i agree with you spot on and you mentioned some of these large companies. They have a lot of challenges when they're not coordinated or even if the global headquarters is shoes a directive but when it comes to a localization part if they do not work or respect local partners to work with it doesn't work and one thing i find having coach one hundred fifty. Sme's during this pandemic because it is during this time where truth be told andrew if you would ask me. Is it my first preference to work with sms. Truth be told. It's not reason being because during this pandemic when it hit malaysia we ran into a lot now immediately all out. Huge corporate clients decided to freeze training. Funds decided to freeze employees development funds. And i realized that s my business was suffering yet. I didn't wanna give up so what i felt was. Hey if the big boys or the big corporates are not able to pay me. Where else can i bring my company. Where else can pivot. And where else can i add tremendous value. Because i'm a believer if you wanna get paid in. Whatever you're doing do not ask us of what people could give you but instead ask what you can give people so i started asking myself. What value can i give. And that was. When i realized that a lot of sme's struggling they were shutting down. And then i realized that. I coach i train. I guide a lot of bit. Corporates on sales marketing on how to happen entrepreneurial jal thinking and i thought i'm just going to bring all this formula that i've learned from all these big companies and i'm going to localize it personalized to sme's and that was how we help them generate five to six figures revenue during the time when everyone was closing shop independent lockdown that hit malaysia. And then people heard about us across the region and that was how we got invited across south east asia and part of the united states to do trainings consulting and even some mentoring virtually. But if you were to ask me what i really respect from. Sme's that were willing to at least fight. During this pandemic is their willingness that openness to be jal and to be nimble and to assure a-team that things are going to be uncertain. They're going to be uncertain if physician change of a drop of a hat. They must have be emotional audacity the strength to cope with it and to just have that faith that better things will come
The C64 'Maxi' Review - Full-Sized Commodore 64 Replica
"Retro video game consoles are pretty awesome. But i just got the one that i've been anticipating the most. I'm going to review these sixty four by retro games next. This is tweet hello everyone. Welcome to hands on tech. I'm jason howell. So if i had to trace passion for technology back to one key item from my childhood be pretty easy for me to put my finger on it. And that's the commodore sixty four. That's the one of the most popular computer systems. Especially at the time. I think it was known as the most popular computer system in the eighties. And i had a commerce sixty four for quite a few years. When i was a kid and i just had so many memories of connecting to bulletin boards with my three hundred baud modem downloading commercial games that i probably wasn't supposed to have just trading floppy disks with friends at school. I mean this defined my childhood. So when i heard that retro games was gonna put out a commodore sixty four mini console. I was elated now in twenty eighteen. They released these c. Sixty four mini. And it's about half the size of a normal commodore sixty four included some games but you could also tap into it to basically run any disk images from the congress sixty four that you wanted. I thought that was neat. Until i heard that the keyboard was completely functioning which is an issue i have a retro raspberry pi with retro pie on it and i've emulated commerce sixty four many times but not having the commodore sixty four keyboard actually changes. The experience are certain keys to re map is just not the same thing. So then i was super excited. When retro games announced that they were doing a maxi version known as the c sixty four happens to be what i have right here the full size version with a functioning keyboard and it is awesome especially for someone like me on the perfect person to give this a spin. So let's take a look at my experience with the c sixty four first. Let's talk about the hardware itself and boy. Am i happy that i waited for the full size keyboard release. The design is impressively faithful to the original bread. Been model of the commodore sixty four. There was a sand papery texture that surrounds the keys on the keyboard that to my memory is pretty spot on the like chunk of the space bar and how it feels when you slam. That feels just right. Totally takes me back and the keys themselves. They're pretty good. There may be a tad wobbly compared to my memory of the original commerce sixty four but thankfully typing this review on it. So i don't care as long as i can hit that run. Stop key when a game tells me too about the only real difference that i can tell from the original. Is that the shift. lock key. doesn't lock down into place when pressed like did on the original. It is a software toggle so it still has the same functional use is just not quite as satisfying all in all. I'm very pleased with how faithful this keyboard replica is. It's a joy to us where things are very different from. The original is the side and the back of the unit. Basically the i o ports on the side is a power button that you just tap and hold power honor office different from the switch on the original. Also three usb ports for plug near joysticks in on the side or other usb peripherals on the back is a micro usb port for power and aced out for your modern television or monitor. Something you can't do with the original commerce sixty four and another usb port and. I'm super pleased that they included that additional rear facing port because that allows me to keep a thumb drive plugged in there. When i want to add more games which you can do and we'll talk about that. My only real complaint is simply how light and in some ways kind of hollow. The entire system feels the original. Had some heft to it. You know one thousand nine hundred eighty technology and this new version contains a small arm computer with five hundred twelve megs of memory so it's pretty svelte. This nation system running vice after all also no true comer sixty four peripherals can be plugged in here at least not easily so no user port no port or expansion port. Now packed in the box is this joystick. Which as you can see has a lot more buttons than any commerce sixty four joystick. Ever had really you just end up with one if you're using a traditional commerce four controller. There's a lot more here and we'll talk about how that interfaces but definitely not quite the slick stick that. I adored back in the day but it does the job. It is super clicky. Pretty loud characteristic. Personally i never really cared much for in those old school joysticks. There's a large button on both sides. That makes it usable for lefties and righties and along. The bottom is a row of specialized buttons that tap into the carousel interface of the sixty. Four which i'll get to as well as for allowing specialized functions during game play so you can load and save states. You can open a virtual keyboard which on the maxi the large version of the c. Sixty four is is unnecessary. Really and then of course you can exit out to the main carousel screen to load a new game. The stock joystick is really kind of essential. If you want to jump in and out of games quickly. It's a bummer. There aren't other designs to choose from. Because like i said it does the job but it's definitely not my favorite for long stretches. Bluetooth support is not included But some people in forums have had luck with different. Modern controllers plugged in via usb. So assume that you're probably using the stock controller unless you really wanna go diving deep and experimenting you might be able to take your favorite controller and plug it in here but it's probably not going to be super easy out of the box now a mini console releases often only as good as the games that are included on it and if you check wikipedia it says that the commodore sixty four originally had around ten thousand commercially released software for the platform. So no matter how. You chop down to disappoint somebody. The c sixty four ships with you guessed it sixty four titles out of the box including a few vic twenty. Titles a firmware update. They you should. Flash brought another seven games to the carousel and some additional functionality. Over although game selection is pretty paltry and my opinion. It doesn't quite match my own nostalgic experienced. But like i said everybody has a different experience. I really appreciate the epochs heavy offerings here. So you've got impossible mission of all the games games summer winter games the jump man series of pretty much many of epochs is a classic titles are in there. There's also a few other favorites. You radium perr odroid. There's some good games in there. Don't get me wrong. But many of these titles simply were not on my radar when i was a kid so when it comes to nostalgia i'm really looking for titles that i know and going to get to more on that in a second but gameplay itself is as smooth as it needs to be. I didn't find any games that didn't work the way i remember them Playing it is an emulation approach though so consider that. It's not going to be perfect. But i didn't detect anything that clued me into it being ambulation. I have emulated the congress sixty four on the raspberry pi and some keys. Don't exist on the keyboard that you have to plug into the back of the raspberry pi in order to do it. So like i said earlier. Having this keyboard makes the game play experience that much. Better the carousel which used very frequently with the c. Sixty four is thoughtfully done as well. You've got some game. Cover art some gameplay screenshots and then a description of the game along with details like who the composer was which personally is a c sixty four aficionado. I can say that super important. The ship is is an amazing music. Chip that was included in the sixty. Four this dozen a perfect job of emulating it and it is really nice to know if hubbard produced not track that you're about to listen to either our display options if you wish to add some crt style scan lines to the experience though. Personally i kept those off for the most part so sixty four games out of the box pretty limited when you're talking about ten thousand total titles but it isn't a deal breaker because if you format a thumb drive to fat thirty two you can add play d sixty four disk images added to your heart's content though you might have to do some cleanup work. I in order to make that happen. The integrated file manager only two hundred fifty six files in a single folder. So if you have a library of thousands of games you're going to shift everything around into their own folders in order to get access to all of those within the interface or you can tap into a community driven upgrade for the c. Sixty four called project carousel. Usb this actually adds hundreds more games directly into the carousel interface so it's as easy to pick and choose as the stuff that ships with the sixty four. Now do note. Project carousel may violate copyright rules. So you're going to want to be sure to check your local laws before diving in check with your own ethics and see if you feel comfortable with that and if it's legal for you to do so but if you do choose to explore this it's super easy. It's non-destructive doesn't override the firmware permanently. Basically you just throw the image files on a thumb drive and then flash the firmware temporarily after boot up to access all the games in that interface power off. The original firmware returns to stock.
New Agent (or Returning Agent) Immediate Action Plan
"Three to one and we're back. It is january the twentieth. It is inauguration day. I understand our new president will be standing in front of a bunch of lights and flags as he takes the oath of office. Not quite the same as a normal inauguration but a historic day nonetheless. And that's the end of our political banter for today's podcast actual factual okay. So we meant to talk about this topic yesterday and frankly we got hooked into talking about zillow which was something that. I'm glad we talked about because many of you reacted very positively as we were. I think confirming a lot of your suspicions. About the fact that zillow is definitely not your business partner in the sense that You know a business partner abnormal normally be helping you and your business lewis definitely been waiting in the tall grass for over a decade Essentially to displace you to disinter mediate you and clearly. That is what they're doing so we talked about that yesterday. Make sure you listen to yesterday's podcast the day before that we were talking about this very topic in this topic is something that is near and dear to our hearts because of the fact that we have so many people joining our coaching business You know coaching business focuses primarily on teaching agents that complete system a system. That's designed to get them into taking listing so our businesses primarily focused on agents. Who will learn how to be listing agents. Because frankly we know. Obviously we touch on the buyer side. We touch on building team writing staff. We do all that stuff. But we want your focus on being powerful listing agent. Because that is where you ultimately get the most leverage that is regenerate the most profits. Frankly and that's how you create a real business Focusing on buyers as we discussed yesterday a bit of a perilous path going forward. If you have not listened to that podcast please listen. Because i think you'll be very very clear that the buyer agent business as it's been really i think prevalent since the ninety s when buyer agents became a thing. I think you really gonna discovered that might not be the future you over invest in giving what zillow and so many other companies are doing so. Please go back and listen to a podcast from yesterday. But today's podcast is a continuation. It's a focus on what action steps. You should be taking now. If you're a new aged or really. I returning agent and my by returning. I mean getting back in the business but maybe returning emotionally to recommitting to your real estate career. Is that about right julie. That's right. So i think a lot of these points. Apply to everyone as a revisit to your education. You can take any one of these points even if you are a fairly grizzled veterans. You know what. I need to brush up on that. I find that you know embracing the fact that knowledge equals. Confidence in ignorance equals fear. That's one of the core things here right. So i find a lot of returning agents new agents newer agents. They have kind of like an education deficit and experienced deficit. And that's really hard to just like give someone but these points are designed to shorten that learning curve. You have to acknowledge the fact. And i don't want to. We won't drill down on this too far. But it's really important that you acknowledge the fact that You're probably in a there's what four distinct arguably five distinct phases of learning phases of mastery. There's a incompetence conscious competence. There's there's what's the next one. Let's say you start out unconsciously incompetent. These views means. You don't know what you don't know literally what they mean unconscious incompetent. You don't even know that their stuff you don't know until usually something kicks your butt and then you move into the next stage which is consciously incompetent now. You have an awareness of your incompetence. This is usually when people invest in coaching Then you start to have conscious competence. You are working on your skills but you still have to be conscious of the competency. You're working on like getting your relisting package in gear and having a really great predictable listing presentation but you having to make the efforts. You're consciously competent. It takes mental and emotional effort. Because it's not you're not on autopilot in the last basis unconscious competence. That's where you don't have to think about it anymore. And then some people would argue that. There's a face beyond that but just for the sake of expediency and explaining what we want you guys to understand is chances are if you're new. Well not chances are if you're new in the business you're unconsciously incompetent in other words you don't know what you don't know if you're a returning in the business maybe you've had a bunch of false starts. You're in that same face to and that phase is not something to be ashamed of. That phase is something to be embraced because it means that you're basically a blank slate. Now this is also the most vulnerable phase that you can be and because you're gonna be susceptible to charlatans you're gonna be susceptible to snake oil salesman you're gonna be susceptible to people selling your shiny objects

And this is not my wheelhouse. But this i am excited to do and i'm excited to talk to you. I am too. I am looking forward to it. So let's get started talking about your soul in journey. Where does your sewing story begin. Oh goodness i grew up in the bahamas and my mom's sewed all the time and functionally though or if felt that way it was such an every day occurrence should the machine was setup. She would make my school uniform. She would make her clothes for work. She do home to core. Whatever we needed she would just whip it up and made it seem easy. I i remember some watching her. Do the pleats. My sister and i went to private school. And all skirts were pleated and she would just sit at the machine. No pattern no markings. Just follow the. Please fold aplly all the way around and had whip on the beltway spanned and ham up at it just seems so effortless and that's what sewing was for me. It was it looked effortless. It look utilitarian. It was functional. But i didn't appreciate it as a creative outlet. It was just something we had to do. It was cheaper for my mom to make our uniform so she did so. I appreciate it to some extent. But i didn't embrace it i did. I would whip up a backpack just for the heck of it. She would make my costumes for the productions. I was in a in drama. And i was in a clown through and she made my clown costumes clown true and sorry. I don't know how gonna be able to get past that. You must tell us. Don't know how you thought you would just gonna slide by the word clown troupe. In that wasn't going to say nothing so pleased small digression to tell us what the clown troupe is okay so i went to private school and that is not helping me learn about clowns. I know i did not realize that. Somehow clowning wasn't essential characteristic. But that's okay. I'll let you continue on with the private school and then through very complicated story is so i. One of my one of my classes was drama and his inner drama class and then one of our teachers who my homeroom teacher started a little getting together to do little skits and we do little gets performed the chapel and the assemblies that our school and then she started to do. She took over the drama production of the school and i got excited in seventh grade. I was in joseph on the mazing technicolor dreamcoat. I was in the how i at. My excitement for drama started there and threw out junior high and high school. She created a group call street lights. It was a drama ministry through and we would put on drama sketches our school and go to churches and travel around the schools in the bahamas and then ultimately part of that drama turned into a clown ministry where we would perform for younger kids in schools at parties and some of those parties actually funded trips to cuba and the uk in wales. Yes so we were doing clowning with lucrative was.

Well i know that tea and coffee at different things. Therefore i know the universe but then as you get older you realize oh wait. There's a universe of things out there. And so i become a life long lover of learning and every opportunity. I get to understand something and how it works. I take it along the way. I started to detect Some patterns that emerge and Some some trends some trends in the world thinking is some trends in the way people some trends in important things to to bring it back around to the conference Some trends and creativity and i'll be doing in our In our keynote the opening of the conference that a creativity and intrinsic quality of the human experience that you don't learn it cannot be told you because it's already there like breathing and as long as you ought changing and causing change you are creative and so once you start with that you realize wow everybody's trying to express themselves will try to coastal agents. They will want to cost shadow. Have their place under the sun footprints in the snow. We all want our existence to mean something and one of the ways that you existence can be meaningful is by having impact and so when we. When i was thinking about the creativity conference the goal originally was to was to create a kind of meeting of minds. And if you'll forgive me taking up the time with the story there's a please do. There's a beautiful concept that was explained to me years ago and i don't claim to have any connection with the tradition But i was told that in the native american tradition. The culture is largely shamanic. Shamanism is rooted in a siberian fire. Religion ancient siberian fire religion. But ultimately suppose you'd say that it's It's a religion that focuses on nature with a capital n so there is a small end nature which trees and bushes in that kind of thing. And then there's capital nature where which is closer to the concept of aptness. But there's a right way to do things that's appropriate under the circumstances and of course it's natural with a capital n us as a species spend time in nature with a small pen. But i'm going off topic so the when when Native american shaman is holding a very large ceremony. There may actually be to shaman the perform the ceremony and the first is the one who performs the ceremony they speak the words. They perform the ritualized aspects of the ceremony. The second shaman will be that to hold the space. It creates an environment in which that's a good work done. Whatever it is. And so. When i had this idea for the creativity conference originally it was intended to be held in reykjavik in iceland on the concept is simple. We get cool people together. Who are passionate about really being alive really participating in this thing called life and give them an opportunity to share ideas and connect and so i described it as a meeting of minds and my goal was never to be a speaker. I was never going to be if you forgive the parallel the shaman holding the actual ceremony. I wanted to be the one holding the space so my goal was to create an environment where everyone felt safe and included and welcome and it was meant to be kind of campfire chat where people say one person says the other person. Oh you do that amazing thing. Don't you tell me about that. Amazing thing the second person would say. Oh well thank you for asking. Actually is the essence of his the heart of the matter. Let me tell you how it really works. And in that safe environment people would learn and grow and connect. I hope and develop projects together and be more impactful in the world and healthier and happier more whole and i think ultimately creativity is about self realization. Our goal is to take whatever is the essence of you in the world. Whatever is truly you not the nurture the nature if you believe that people have a soul soul if you believe that it's the id and the ego and the superego. It's that that ina part of you. The observer that has no opinions and is simply experiencing an existential is. They would call it a passenger but whatever that being is i think. Creativity is an opportunity for that being to to manifest itself in the world
S6 E2 - What does a normal transition from the military look like? (LI)
"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are already asking nuts as question is a simple one but the answer is sometimes really hard to find. The question is this. What does a normal transition from the military look like and in this episode will try to do my very best to answer this question. But i'm also going to be sharing the five steps to nailing your transition from the military and in fact i dedicated an entire chapter in my book called resolve dedicated an entire chapter to just this issue and these five steps which i've never shared outside of the book. I'm gonna share them with you here today. Oh by the way my name is ear perkins. I'm us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Father to two amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve which i just mentioned and resolve is a book. That is a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and if you hadn't guessed on the host of this podcast now. I recently posed a couple of questions to our members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group and the first question. I asked to veterans and the second. I asked to veteran family members as a hero. Those questions said veterans. What is one word. Just one now. What is one word. You would use to describe your transition from the military and then veteran family members. I asked them something very similar. What is one word. You would use to describe. Your family. members transitioned from the military. Now look i know. Only one word does not give a lot of room to explain but there was really a theme here with not just veterans but also family members and here are a few of the responses. And see if you can kind of pick out. The theme loss unprepared uncertainty anger. Hell frustrating confusing difficult. And that was just the veteran responses. Let's take a look at the family member responses chaos unsettling rocky complicated. Now when we come back. Let's see if we can unpack these responses a bit to uncover what that theme is and and learn if your transition for the military was just as normal as everyone else's stay tuned will be right back who am i. Why am i still here. I uncover who i was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to plague my heart through the pain of job loss. Diagnosis often. Crippling anxiety finally discovered the reason. I'm here on the earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself so i wrote a book. Simply titled saw resolve is a book that is one apologetically faith-based step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other resolve provides veterans everywhere with things to help you step into your new life a life full of hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com now back to the show before the break. We covered those single word responses from members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And now i want to kind of dive in a bit and unpack those responses and hopefully once and for all answer the question probably all of us ask. Ourselves was my transition from the military. Normal was different was that the same wasn't normal. So let's take another look at those words loss. Hell complicated confusing frustrating uncertainty. You know honestly it just sounds really really rough in my own words that i kinda tag onto. My own transition is brutal now. I do everything in my power to include hosting and producing this podcast riding a book developing personal relationships with veterans serving on veterans nonprofit board. Do everything in my power. Everything i can to help veterans through the challenges of the transition. But what i found in all my. I'll say research for lack of a better term. Is that the transition is hard. Nearly one hundred percent of the time. I'm gonna say that again. The transition from the military is hard nearly one hundred percent of the time. Now that kind of brings up a follow up question right. Well what makes it hard. Is there just one specific thing or is it a combination of things. Now the truth is it probably is a combination of things. But i think there's one key element that makes the transition really really difficult and i wanna share a key insight with some practical steps that you can take on your own transition. But before i do. I want to take a quick detour here. So have you ever been driving down the road. And then you just took a short detour. Maybe you wanted to get a better lay of the land or you wanted to try out a different route to get to your destination. You're still headed your destination but maybe you just wanted a different picture. Maybe you wanted to take in the scenery. We're gonna take detour right now. Just a short little detour. And i want to detour into the meaning of the word transition. Now i don't wanna get all technical and bore you with just some definitions. But i think this is a really really key point so oxford languages defined transition as the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another for example. I'm in the middle of my transition out of the military or use another way of use it as a verb. It is to undergo or to cause to undergo a process or period of transition for example for talking about a war time scenario. We have transitioned from a high intensity combat operations role to a support role in the community. Now why do. I even bring that up. Why even take this detour. One that address. A misconception about transitioning from the military and the misconception is this that the transition from the military is nothing more than just another event in your life. That's the misconception that the transition from the military is just another event. So let's take a look at some of those events in our lives. You're born that's an event you graduated from high school. That's an event you got a job. That's an event you got married. That's an event even if you've been married more than once. Each marriage is another event. You had a child. That's an event you had another child. That's another event. So all those things i just mentioned are all single events. You don't have the same child twice. you don't get the same job twice you. Don't get married to the same person on the same day twice. So all of these are single events. And there's this kind of expectation that the transition will also be just a single event in the transition or rather the end state or the end goal that we're shooting for is not even clearly defined so when someone says transition from the military it can mean one hundred different things you ask one hundred people you get one hundred different answers. Since transition is not clearly defined in that context or another words. We don't even know what the target is. We're supposed to be aiming for. It's impossible to know whether we've successfully transitioned out so it makes sense. Then that people are saying gosh is hard. This is lost. This is hell. This is confusing is uncertain. This was brutal because we don't have any clear indication of whether we have been successful at it or not and the truth is transition isn't event but it's also journey so you do transition out when you hang up that uniform for the final time that's the event but you will continue to learn what you want your post military life to look like and that's the transition journey so now begs another question or another few questions is the target of the transition out of the military is the target targeted good job. Is it one hundred percent disability rating. Is it the approval to use vocational rehab Benefits for education. Is it something else entirely. What is the target when a service member leaves the military and frankly a as great as the cat program. Those transition programs the military are. I think that's where the military failed every single one of us. And i'm not trying to be the disgruntled veteran here because there's a lot of things that the military va do really well but setting us up for success in the transition is just not one of those and i think they failed us. Big time they said. Hey here's some benefits you could be eligible for. Here's some things you might wanna check out. Thank you for your service. Good luck with your life. There's no explanation of what your targets are or even should be so. I posed that question to you right now. How do you define transitioning from the military. What are the targets if you want to respond to send me message. Podcast at courage to fight again dot com. Let me know all right. So let's get back on track here. So i mentioned i wanted to share with you. One key insight into the why behind transition difficulty and i think the first and perhaps the most is what i just talked about in our detour. We're flying blind and we have no concept of the new target what it is where it is in fact. There's a quote in the book. I wrote resolve. That goes no one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until. I figure it out. Excuse me until first figuring out. Where was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was. They wanted to go all right. So here's those five steps. I promise you begin the episode step one. The and again these steps are key to nailing your transition from the military and these are just part of the resolve book. This is only one chapter step. One is cast the vision. Where do you want to be a year from now. Two years five years from now. Now mind this idea of you know where you want to be can fall into a variety of categories and maybe it's physical or career or relationships or va disability or post nine eleven gi bill. It could be a variety of things but one technique is to consider a single category. Let's take finance for example and let's say your goal is i want to be completely out of debt and i want to do that within five years now. That leads us into step two. We've we've got the single category that we're targeting one part of our lives or not being overly vague and saying i want to have more money are wanted to have more financial independence or i want to be a better person or went to be healthier. We're creating a specific goal in specific category over lives. And that's our vision right. I want to be out of debt completely out of debt within five years so that leads us into step to list out the challenges or the risks associated with achieving your vision of getting out of debt now for example maybe to use our example. We're in here. The financial financial say financial peace. That's daveramsey thing right To say like. I want to be completely out of debt within five years. Maybe you're living beyond your means right now or perhaps you and your family preferring higher standard of living so your normal expenses are higher. Nothing wrong with that but it could be a risk to achieving your vision within five years. Or maybe you've gone through a divorce in you're paying child support. Or maybe you're taking care of an elderly parent or an ageing parent so anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe. You're lauding for it. I'm going to say that again. Anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe you're allotting for it brings us to step three risk mitigation. There are several examples. I use in the book but what it boils down to. Is you sitting down either by yourself or with a group of other veterans who are also on this resolve journey. Where you're working through the book together but sitting down and coming up with a strategy of how you will mitigate those risks brings you to step four. Get feedback get feedback. Your perspective on your situation is unique. But it's only one perspective reach out to someone you trust. Share your vision with them and get their perspective on your vision and just a little side note. That is why the book resolve is created for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans. So you don't have to go out and search for those people you trust. You don't have to say men. Who do i ask you. Just talk to those who are going through the journey with you and finally step five experienced peace. Now i know it probably sounds like i'm over simplifying things a bit and into this more in the book but one thing i want to point out here is as we bring the show in for landing comparing your vision to someone else's is not going to help and in fact it could potentially make you even more uncertain about your own vision that you've cast for your life. Look where all different we have different skills. Different experiences different aptitudes in. We aren't all going to have the same vision and the sooner you embrace that the sooner you can experience the peace that comes from being your own path and making strides toward achieving that vision sir question today. Was your transition normal. Here's the answer if it was easy and you slip from wary uniform to not wearing a uniform with no significant issues. And you're like wow. This was great. Could couldn't couldn't have been better than no. Your transition was absolutely not normal but if it was hard like it was nearly every single one of us then yes. Your transition was absolutely. I hope this helps. I hope it helped answer the question. Did i answer the question. Did i not. What are your questions record voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast courage to fight again. Dot com more joined the post nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And post your question there. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. Them only comes through faith in jesus price whilst you right back here two weeks from today and the next veteran question we'll be doing our best to answer is this. What is the. Va solid start program. If you liked this leave survive star review on. I tunes help so much until next time. Thanks for listening. We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.
Five Storylines for 2021
"Everyone on. Your sports illustrated tennis. Podcasts are last ten of being ear. Jbl joining me. We already dispensed awards handed out Various honors we toasted these six players. Who won majors in two thousand twenty in this crazy year. We have good farewell to the bryan brothers. We lamented strangeness of this rotation around the sun we have looked forward to twenty twenty one. So let's just kind of do it all out rap. Jamie how are you. How goes in your parts. Are you dusted with snow. As we are here in new york it is a little bit more than a dusting here but We are warm inside staring. It's still coming down but we are. We are all good here. I can always tell the rhythm of tennessee's in based on knows a press releases. I'm sent in when there are no tournaments On the calendar when they're no match is being played They tend to get to increasingly distant for tennis itself. It's been a while since. I've gotten a press release about An actual tournament result or a match result. So let's let's just kind of take final inventory of twenty twenty one twenty two twenty then spinning forward to Twenty twenty one. Are there any any sort of enduring memory. You're doing capsule late straight year in in in one image. What would it be in one image. That is hard. I would say if that was the case in an empty an empty stadium. An empty arena. But i think i think for me you did this a little bit in your mouth but i kind of have to agree with you that feel like all in all a twenty twenty was terrible of course across the board but for china's i do think that sport distinguish itself in many ways in. I think that for a lot of the players that you know we have been talking about for years now It was really nice to see a lot of those players breakthrough in different ways. I think of course dominic. Thiem you know had finally won his first major and you know he had a really strong year across the board You know twenty seven years old finally gets to his high ranking. Gets that major. And you know it's all done at that first ornament back first major nine only osaka of course who not only is her major haul here but then she found her voice and you know use it and use it well and i think You know we can talk a little bit more about her but you have severe kenan against him. Thank someone who we talked about. Who is young and she. You know kind of proved again that she is here and you know she's twenty twenty two years old but her first major win was not a fluke and the list goes on. I think again. These are players that we've been talking about and it was good to see them all breakthrough re cement themselves and kind of redefine their careers This year in twenty twenty such important year for everyone. I can give you my My off-court analog to that I think we're all waiting to see which of these changes are stopgap in that means in life and not just a tennis We which of these are going to be a new way of life so our zoom good replace office and are we all going to be enjoying outdoor dining going forward and how much of this is just Emergency measure it. How much this heart and into our new reality. And i think at tennis we have the same thing that we haven't had a lot of match results I'm glad you hit on the ones we did. And i did have some really good tennis but i think a lot of the discussion has been about. How do we broadcast sport. How do we travel the australian open falsifying dough high then charter private planes for everyone to then quarantine them austrailia. And we have events moving. And we've experimented with different formats for tennis and i think if any good has come out of this year it has been that tennis has finally decided to innovate to cooperate. It's not always been perfect. But i think there's a real sort of spirit of enterprise it hasn't always been around the sport in some of this was the society Some of this was just trying to salvage events and put some some money in player's pockets. But i do really hope that. This spirit of enterprise. We can do things a little bit different than we break some models. We can defy conventional wisdom. We can try and shift dates around if miami has to be played for one year in the middle east so be it and if indian wells gets moved to october and everybody stops in the desert on their way to from china so be it. I hope that this is one of the legacy of this. This unhappy year is that tennis has a lot more liability and is a lot. More nibble has the job of its flexibility on the court. It can do the splits. And i do think that if any good comes out of this year apart from what you say that the emergence of team was great. And i always talk then. Profes- mitch there was. There was really howard moments on court. But i do think to me one of the great sort of i hope. Enduring legacies of this horrible year is a tennis has proven that it's a lot more nimble than than perhaps we thought. Perhaps it bought So i guess we'll sort of you know against a lot of we can use that to transition to twenty twenty one. There are still a lot of unanswered questions about the schedule about rankings about where the tokyo olympics factor into the this year. That's already growing complicated but I do think there was a real spirit of cooperation in our ingenuity video of enterprise. Haven't always seen in tennis

ever come of the name we don't think we ever came up with a name for the aughts that was sorry by Justin Bieber and the year was twenty sixteen later in the show Jessica Levinson from Loyola law schools going to call in and we're going to discuss sort of what may happen I with the impeachment proceedings going forward yet another Republican senator today saying she's on happy with the way Mitch McConnell's coordinating this with the White House what does it really mean doesn't really matter also if you think you're voting independent did you really do that did you really register the right way is an independent and we will discuss all that so that as the primary rolls around in March you will be ready to vote and the well I was gonna say make your vote count but in California I don't know on a presidential level your vote doesn't count it we all know how it's gonna end up still I always vote and sometimes I do Democrats sometimes about Republican I'm not taking my hand here but I do vote on the principle of it because a lot of people shed a lot of blood so that I could decide who my leaders are one other thing because it's California we have several laws kicking in tomorrow there's a law we're gonna talk about later that if you're a publicly traded company in California you have to half anywhere from one female board member on your board of directors to half your board of directors being female the lawsuits have come out about that because it's once again the government stepping in and telling everybody what to do all other laws that kicking in tomorrow which will discuss later is this new privacy law which is the strictest in the country for your online data it's a similar to what they have in Europe where starting tomorrow if you go on one of these websites like Google or well all Starbucks maybe on the main website there ought to be something that will pop up and tell you what they do with your data and give you a button right on the homepage not on the app but on the home page saying you can opt out this law was created for a Facebook and as you can probably guess Facebook says it's exempt Facebook is arguing that it doesn't really sell your information it shares your information and some Homer ridiculously it makes money we'll see how that stands up in court all but one other law that I want to talk about right now is eighty five which kicks in tomorrow it's it's all several lawsuits have already been five everything everything in America and particularly everything in California ends up being decided in court oh one one interesting thing one in four federal circuit court judges is now trump appointees so that's gonna help last him no matter what it whether he's elected or not eighty five is a state law though that will re classify many freelance workers as employees and it reportedly this could add twenty to thirty percent of the cost of certain business models like uber and lift you know employees would be protected by the minimum wage and overtime rules they would be eligible for workers comp and unemployment insurance the companies would have to pay half of their payroll taxes for Medicare and social security so uber and post mates have sued to say that they've been unfairly targeted that other industries have been exempted from this this will if they have to comply by this certainly the cost of writing in over a lift is going to go out and uber and lift drivers may no longer have control over their own schedules as the entire point of the gig economy is you can do it when you want and not when you don't want to on the other hand if you're not making any money at it and if they keep you know **** you over how much they keep in their commission well is that fair well then you don't have to do if you don't want to now this suit that to uber in post mates have filed is unlikely to stop the law from kicking in tomorrow a federal judge reportedly will decide whether to grant a preliminary injunction from blocking the law from being in force which could later turn into a permanent injunction or maybe not so here's here is how you qualify as someone who should not be considered a freelancer but as a full time employee or ask an employee three conditions one the worker is free from the control and direction of the hiring entity in connection with the performance of the work both under the contract for the performance on the work and in fact so you're you're not controls okay so so your new bird drive you're not controlled by over we're really not your your you're your own person too and this is key the worker performs work that is outside the usual course of the hiring entities business so this is where they get you what is uber's business uber's businesses on demand ride sharing so if you are a driver you are critical to their main business but reportedly uber has been trying to argue it's not a ride sharing business it's a technology business in fact it's actual name is uber technologies not uber ride sharing I don't think that's gonna hold up and the third thing that qualifies you as a full time employee as opposed to a freelancer is quote the worker is customarily engaged in an independently established trade occupation or business of the same nature as the work performed so that's how I massage therapist and all these people try to word granted many of them were granted exemptions like if your renting a a chair in a hair salon I view were granted an exemption but they had to fight for that because you are

"News ninety three point you get a free high heart athlete yeah fifteen thirty on a man there who has a new album out yeah I heard you talking about and it's just it blows my mind rock and roll radio is just changed so much that you don't even hear it you don't hear it on it where's why isn't on the rock stations was not no program director you know the magic of being in for me growing up and in a certain time with radio is that one of the great things I always love listening to on rock and roll radio is when they would say a you know the disc jockey will come on he would say something like you know the D. backs sell a set of music in front of that we heard blah blah blah we started off that time was it I don't even know if they do that anymore yeah selfie times and they say everything that they've done I love that because as a teenager as a teenager I would sit there candle and market I would sit there and I would wait there could be a song in it how much what is that I really like that but I'm just learning about music right at the time so it well what was that so then I would backtrack in my mind I would think okay that was you know six songs go inside yeah then I would listen to the guy in the so it before that we know her Johnny winter hi we sixty one we visit or whatever you like Johnny winter you write down and you learn all that way but but so cool when they do that yeah I mean to even do that anymore yeah I actually they do do that still and what I also like is a lot of the stations what they do is they'll do that and then they'll say if you want to know more if you forgot what I said then go ahead and check our website will have the play illustrate their feet up to check it out good good but you will notice so that they don't talk a lot about the artist anymore and there's a reason for that a lot of the shows are voice tracked ahead of time yeah well sums yeah some of the stations do that as a son some some stations deny and if you mention eight you know something about led Zeppelin's past yeah and muskrat love played before that well that's exactly station right there make any sense us why we would never do that there are I no we're all worried or how to present live here we are one hundred percent live the end that's a shame because it is shocking that's what a DJ's job should be doing a back sale to tell you about the artist little bit mean if there's a little tidbit not just about every every single artist maybe but but what what I really used to love what they did is I used to love when they woulda they would say they would finish back so in the same Hey Anna who the rolling stones Avenue Albany to play the title track will play a cut from the new album coming at me like eagerly anticipating wow man and they've a new album out I can't wait can we do hear it you know the Russians the radio station radio station couldn't wait to play it something new from a great band reach for so many years you wouldn't hear any new Tom Petty on the radio radio you will hear no rolling stones I'm currently now was it was do you play it's the same old thing over and over and over and over the same all hit you've heard a million times and they don't play the new one maybe I'm not a loop maybe someone in towns plaintiffs or giving credits enough you know and then and then I met I'm wrong but I have not heard anyone planes knew who album enemy there should be a big day these guys getting up there and they still rock so well and it's just a it's a wonderful album but so much of the planet so since they're not least that I've heard then I thought at some point we will go through some of these cuts tonight listen to it together I would listen to a little bit of a little bit of it I've I've heard so I thought why not missing do together right we can all explore the new album together we can all get a take on it and then maybe I'll they'll ask you to be music critic you could tell showing the new who among so think about that we'll do that at some point here last night now I'm not a by any stretch of a big under his phone number two nine one six nine two one fifteen thirty nine to one fifteen thirty and toll free one eight hundred eight three four fifteen thirty not a huge on watching Miss America here miss Universo whatever my mom when she used to watch that stuff what candles lasting can those laughing did they remove the bikini then they usually became a segment in Miss Universe or isn't Miss America I'll have to do some research on that path that you would you would know that well like I said I'm not a big you know like an expert on charges or anything but it is a nice looking ladies and all that but I know they they had eliminated the bikini say may because obviously it must be saxes if you have women in bikinis for goodness sake which by the way I just disagree with now they are costume contest I think are really a costume contest to get myself in trouble here damn my costume would be bikini rights miss Russia what is your it's a book came miss Canoga park what do I do notice when this is okay it's a it's a bird kini yeah so now it looks like they have it I think it was Miss Universe I can't

men out there not that many of us really sit down or really watch the shows these pageants but when you're when you're being a nice guy your I guess your wife your girl or whatever maybe is it down
