What we've learned about Barrett's views on abortion cases
"Judiciary Committee hearings in full swing this week. Arlene's outta wrote this report. For many feminists, it is the most painful, outrageous and sad irony that the Supreme Court seat once held by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the most staunch supporters of women's rights and civil rights, will soon be held by another woman. But one who seems to be the mirror opposite of R B, G and all her views the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings this week on the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the Supreme Court. But her views on full display despite the fact that she repeatedly refused to answer questions about her opinions, questions on such settled issues as the right to birth control and the right to vote, including a peaceful transition of power. As the result of that vote, all got I cannot comment answers. When asked about her view opposing same sex marriage, she offhandedly used the term sexual preference when referring to the LGBT plus community, even though many activists say the term is offensive. One after another Democratic senators tried to press her on her record, such as the fact that she previously signed onto an ad describing abortion as barbaric and calling for the Roe v. Wade decision to be overturned. Her two dissenting opinions and abortion related cases, one of which involved allowing minors to get an abortion without notifying parents by way of judicial bypass, and another that would have required fetal remains to be formally buried. Observers say 17 cases related to abortion are one step away from the Supreme Court and three including a 15 week abortion ban from Mississippi could be taken up as early as its next session. And her only nod to any progressive opinion. Barrett seemed to support the idea of desegregation by calling the Brown v. Board of education decision a super precedent that isn't likely to ever be overturned. The Judiciary Committee is set to vote to approve barrettes nomination next week with a vote of the full Senate by the end of the month. Bang. With the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the U. S. Supreme Court. Questions about her ties to the religious right have raised concerns about the fate of Roe v. Wade and a person's right to reproductive choices. Her turn. Reporter Ellen La Luzerne spoke with Karen Garst, who author to anthologies about the impact of religion on women. Women beyond belief, and women versus religion. Last received her PhD in curriculum and instruction from UW Madison and is a current resident in the state of Oregon. 2016 you published a book Women Beyond belief. In the book's introduction, You stated that you wrote the book after learning of the 2014 U. S. Supreme Court decision regarding Hobby lobby's denial of reproductive care for their employees. Your reaction was to question why a corporation can use its religious beliefs. To dictate the healthcare a woman could receive. Fast forward to today when we're witnessing the Supreme Court nomination process for a woman who is a valid Lee, a member of an extremist religious sect that believes that women should submit to their husbands What was your reaction when you heard about the nomination of Amy Clooney Barrett for the U. S Supreme Court. First of all, I wasn't surprised because Trump has already appointed people to the Supreme Court. I didn't watch quite a bit of the confirmation hearings of his previous nominees, so I wasn't surprised that he appointed someone who's conservative. He vowed when he was elected that he would appoint justices to the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade. If Connie Bear is confirmed, What is your opinion about the impact that this might have for future cases such as the Affordable care act and a woman's right to choose? Well, I think it's going to have very dilatory ous impacts because now we're going to have a Supreme Court. That is considered very conservative. I believe six of the justices will be considered Catholic, and there are going to write decisions as they have for that have a conservative bent. I think it's very unfortunate that the Supreme Court has become so politicized. If we look in our history. One of the things that I was doing some research on was previous decisions and Brown vs the Board of Education. Which desegregated schools was fundamental change to the way this society was operating was a 9 to 0 decision, and people saw what was happening in society, and I talked to a friend of mine who is a lawyer there. Who said, you know, there's this public sentiment. That's how culture changes. And people were attuned to that, And now we're not appointing people to the Supreme Court who have an open view. They're very, very one sided, and I think it's totally tragic that she's going to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg. What do you think the consequences will be for Roe v. Wade and access to freedom of choice? An abortion? There will always be abortion. The question is whether it's going to be safe and whether it's going to be legal. There has been throughout time before Roe v. Wade. It was back alley abortions, and I think younger women today they don't know what it was like before then Roe v. Wade. If it were completely overturned, I think would have a revolution. It might take a while to put it together. Rather, I think what they'll do is just approved all these restrictions on it, making the doctors who on abortion clinics we associate with the hospital, whether it's making AA lot regulations on the clinic itself and what it can have and what it has to have delegating more. The authority of states and people are going to have to say I don't want to live in a state like this. If they overturn it completely and make abortion illegal. I just Hey, I'm ready to start the revolution. I don't think they're going to go that far. But who knows? What do you think, drives the women who are supporting people like Coney, Bharat and Support these types of efforts to keep women as subservient to men, such as the belief system of Annie Cockney Barrett. Religion is an indoctrination in a set of beliefs. I'm 70 when I was growing up in the fifties in Bismarck, North Dakota. Every person I knew went to a church or there were three Jewish families who went to a synagogue. But it was part of everybody's life. So you're indoctrinated in that It's your family. Everybody else around you is like that. Unless you're exposed to something different. This shapes who you are. And we know that Trump was elected by conservatives by people who identified as religion, particularly fundamentalist religion. That's too he appeals to, and it's unfortunate that the religion hasn't changed enough to deal with our society today. What is interesting to me? Is that this woman, Amy Cockney Barrett is very intelligent. She is ah, Notre Dame professor. She's an appellate court judge, and she has seven kids. I can't imagine trying to balance all that. But in spite of that conservative religion, it is pretty hard to say, Well, she's helped meat of her husband because she is Ted her own career. In your
How one catering company found success by hiring ex-convicts as employees
"Up First Today we hear from Alex Head Chef and entrepreneur behind social country, london-based events and contracts catering company with four sites in the capital. What makes a business rather specialists that she works with UK prisons, mentoring prisoners, and she also employers ex offenders. So what's it like to work with prisoners who are rice out of jail and? That's more business should do the same I caught up with Alex to hear more and I she told me how entrepreneurial story with food began already when she was fifteen and selling sandwiches in Riyadh where her family moved for Work Gosh. So I was quite not when I was younger and I was expelled from school just being really noisy. So I got home for the kind of Easter holidays my own said, well, you better make some pocket money. So I thought my goodness, how am I going to make some money and I printed out some clip posters Dayton if you're old enough to remember clip up I. Definitely am and I went up to my dad's and put them on the wall and I sat by the phone I waited for it to ring. So I sat by the phone and in came the sandwich orders and I delivered some really crap sandwiches totally overpriced to people stuck ultimately in the middle of the desert we didn't have delivery back in the day. So my sandwiches really with the option for my dad's to enjoy. So I started selling them and managed to make a tiny bit of money and not just kind of I suppose fueled my entrepreneurial spirit exactly in two thousand eleven you launched the social. Penser Pros, how you got the idea to launch that business sense what was the gap in the market you saw yet? So I would love to say that it was really planned and I put lays of time and effort into business plan. I definitely didn't. So I'd hit London when I was Kinda early twenties opening restaurants and as running them for other people and we opened a little pizza place behind circus and after six months it closed so actually didn't work which was one of the best. Business lessons I've ever can have learned really it taught me so much and luckily it wasn't kind of any of my investment or any of my money. So I was twenty five and I was back to waitressing again at time I already had a couple of catering clients that is doing the ordinance for their freezer or very simple kind of cooking for and so I decided that I would give that a go and I would kind of go food time with my hobby at that time. We'll mike an of pocket money stream which was social pantry. So I. was in my flat in Battersea I think probably had a couple of hundred quid which I spent on a website and I made some really shoddy looking business cards and I handed them out and I disconnect waited for the orders to roll in and the business grew from there from the little flat word of mouth meant each event another event of the back of it and said sorted. so organically in a tiny little. Flat in Battersea or do you think that was? Why do you think you were so successful from the beginning? Did you do something Rice or were you look? Oh, my goodness. I have done lots of things well, and my goodness if I got it wrong over the years later it is definitely. So challenging running a business and I am the first to say that God I like to think I've made every mistake that someone can make but I think if you're reactive to the mistakes you. Make a mistake if you learn from it, then you're going to survive as a business. I'm back in the day I just made sure really that I serve great food. So really tasty food and I served smile and at the beginning I was cooking I was serving I was driving it. I was doing everything and I made sure really the product was great and still now eight years online is on, I can't remember I didn't make sure that the people that the events of fantastic and. Food the product is really fantastic as well. What is your food philosophy? What's okay? So fresh seasonal and delicious is tagline and we have always from the word go caps it just really kind of simple good food is locally sourced. It's delicious back in the day it was myself cooking. So it was quite simple. It was just really you know tasty seasonal food. Now we have a fantastic team chefs who really are incredible. So the you know we now a competing with those really big caterers. So the level of finances you know we're right up there as one of London's goatee caters. So the food now is really incredible. But if you to visit one of my cafes, it's lovely to salads big, day yesterday my dad and we had big Chia sandwiches Guja, salads loads of Fateh which a bloody love and we had some nice fresh juices coffee. So it simple but it seasonal and local suppliers. I think is really interesting earlier. You mentioned that you've made many many mistakes and you've. Learned from them, can you give me examples what have been the most educational mistakes you have made yes? Oh Gosh I think I mean it's so talented I think one of the things I really struggled with there's a managing a team it can be really challenging I. Think you know nothing can really prepare you for that I. Think if you were to go off and do other university degrees under the sun you've got to practice practice makes perfect managing and you know I suppose going leading it's. But ultimately, where we've grown a bit too quickly, that's something that I would look back on. Okay. We've won intendo or we have said Yes to something can actually you know we can pull it off we've done well but internally we need more structure more people power internally but each time you just you know you learn and adapt but being reactive as what's seven important really

I'm Scared to Invest in Real Estate in a College Town Right Now
"Anthony is in Kansas City High Anthony. Welcome to the Dave. Ramsey show. Hi doing great. How can I help? I have about a half million dollars in my checking account and I have had it in there for a couple of years I'm trying to figure out exactly what to do with it. My plan was to use it for real estate. But the real estate market got me a little spooked right now while or. we live in a college shirt close to a college town and. the market there they've built so many brand new complexes in the last. Ten Years Nobody's going to college. Okay. I'm with you exactly the enrollment rates are going down you know so I'm a little bit Leery of that. So what town are you at all? I'm Manhattan. Kansas Yeah, okay All right yes. You're far enough away from Kansas City that you're probably not investing in. Kansas City. Correct okay, Anthony holder you. I'm forty five. Okay. You've done a great job. Yeah. Are you planning to stay Manhattan. That depends don't necessarily need to have a hobby farm. I'm I'm an electrical contractor by trade. But my my real estate holdings I have a couple of rental properties to, but I have about a million and a half in real estate that's all paid for. about one, hundred, thousand in cash five, hundred, thousand in my checking. about four, hundred, thousand other assets like. Crack loaders tractors. You're. A. Stud. Done. So proud of you. It's got to feel great man really did it and I'm assuming you did all this start assuming you to all the starting from nothing. For nothing inherited nothing way to go well, here's what I would do if I, woke up in your shoes and I find myself in similar situations from time to time. I'm between real estate deals and I need access to the cash when I get ready to do the next real estate deal. That's where I find myself. It's where you find yourself because you're not going to drop that half million in Manhattan you've made that decision. I'm not going to recommend if you've listened to me for more twenty minutes, you know this to be a long distance landlord. and. So what I'm GonNa end up doing is just parking this probably in like an S. and P. Five hundred. you know a no load fund there's no commissions and just ride the market with it a little bit while I'm waiting to decide what I'm GONNA do. and. One of two things will happen. One of three things will happen. You decide to stay in Manhattan and the market get soft as you predict. So you will not pull that money out in buying Manhattan. So you're probably going to turn and invest in some other vehicle for probably some mutual fund or something number. Two thing that could happen as you move and you're living in whatever Kansas City and you got a great market to invest in. Then, you pull the money out and you invest it then what was the third thing that could happen. The third thing could happen would be Manhattan back the college market firms back up and you feel good about investing in Manhattan again, pull the money out there s and P and invest go so your parking it until something else moves another variable moves in the situation. But checking accounts not okay. Yeah. I realize that it's been but you know how it is Kinda fly. And I'm sure your bank is reaching out blowing up your phone with all their ideas and thoughts. Real helpful now. Drysdale's on the line. There's a saw ball mister guides deals on the line. There's a fourth option you may begin to look at something that gets to be on sale where you've got someone that has to sell or is looking to sell, and now you've put yourself in a situation to start to have some conversations about potentially buying that that could happen as the market. In Manhattan that's right. that somebody couldn't quite survived the turn and it's making an upward turn and you're comfortable with it that could result in a really good for a great deal. Yeah. That's that's a very, very good point. Dr. John Loney is. One of three, thirty, two degrees he's got he's got more degrees than a thermometer is in higher. Ed. And he's talked about with you and I and a bunch of US behind the scenes and even some what on the air The to the extent that. Because of the student loan debacle and because covert scenario by home, they realized These colleges are trying to charge just as much sitting at home I'm not getting like the college experience. I don't see any ivy on the walls here at my house. So to those two things hitting together are accelerating p the demand for college degrees. On campus living college degrees, they're accelerating that demand dropping right been dropping. Student loan the covert thing is pushed it over the edge. So, we are seeing some things like he's describing a college town like Manhattan, which is what Kansas State. Of Kansas, state and So you know we're seeing so many smaller towns where the economy's driven by resoluteness. Affecting their economies it really is a lot of those around America.
Why Bribes and Threats Aren't Helpful
"Children. So the first point wanted to talk about is why bribes and threats aren't a good idea. They interfere with intrinsic motivation for one and the most widely known educator who talks about this is Alfie Kohn. He had a book. He wrote several years ago called punished by rewards. It talked all about this issue of using rewards to control behavior and how it not only doesn't work but it interferes with our children's intrinsic motivation and I'll never forget one of the examples of the studies that he shared about even though I read the book many years ago. There was a summer reading program that a library was doing. It was something like who read the most books they were going to get a free pizza. So, here are these children most of whom actually already enjoyed reading books, which is why they knew about the library and they heard about the program and now something that they had done for enjoyment with turned into work. It actually made the children less interested in reading for enjoyment, which was obviously not what this program intended they intended to encourage but what it did again was it was basically the message that if you do enough of this thing, you're gonna get something good but you have to do these things which then the children getting oppression these are unpleasant things and they're not to be enjoyed you do this to get a positive result. And I think a lot of us can relate to this even in terms of maybe hobbies that we've had that we've considered making into a career and then somewhere we've. raised. I don't like doing this when I have to I only like doing this when I want to. One of my daughters enjoys drying and other kinds of art and in college she thought she might be an art major but she found that it was a lot of pressure to have to come up with these assignments and finish them and she's very slow. She enjoys doing it but she takes her time. It takes for a long time to finish something creative that she's doing and it was so much pressure that she realized that wasn't for her and she still enjoys art as a hobby, but she became a computer science major instead. To ideally, we want to preserve what children are born with, which is intrinsic motivation. They are entered directed unless we train them to be otherwise and this is precious. This can guide us through life. So I can hear people thinking well, yeah, reading sure aren't sure but you're not gonNA enjoy doing chores or cleaning up but chores you know maybe there's not that much enjoyment in it but there's this inner sense of accomplishment that we can have and I know for me when I do cleanup something, I'm not very tidy as a person. But when I do organize a drawer or something I, go back and I check that out twenty times that day to enjoy my accomplishment and this is what we want our children to have around all the challenges that they take on in life. So. That's number one number two. Probes and threats aren't positive for the relationship that most of us want to develop with our children. Is Trust mutual respect a sense that we're on the same team. I even respond when I hear it and I hear it a lot in articles about parenting, and this parents has it in order to get him to do anything I have to. That idea that we're getting children to do something even that. To me comes off as right away. They're going at it from an US against them approach instead of helping my child to do something or creating the environment that allows my child to do something encourages my child. Not I want to get you to do something because children are so intuitive especially around their relationship with us in the messages were giving them about what her relationship is and they sense when they're being tricked or when they're being manipulated or we're trying to get them to do something it's not that it damages them but it takes us in a direction that is not going to ultimately help us or

The Conflict Between Motivation and Money
"I'm sure that all of you have at one time or another. Thought about your motivations for doing photography with such passion and devotion. If you haven't, it's probably time to do so because after all. Doing photography the way you and I probably do it is an expensive time consuming sort of all encompassing activity. It's the one thing in our life we probably do without thinking about the consequences of spending that much money or that much time it's our pursuit of excellence. It's a passion and as such we SORTA don't care well, within reason who would it costs us and how much time it takes. With that in mind however, I do find it odd. People seem to develop a website or A. Semi Business Strategy about what it is. They produce without really thinking about the conflict between motivation and money. I hope I'm not explaining something that is so obvious. So trivial that it's going to bore you but business one. Oh one seems to be missing in a lot of photographers, minds and so. Here's the basic truth about business about selling anything is. You don't make the decision to sell anything. That's not the way transactions work at least in a free society, you can't be compelled. To purchase something you have to want to purchase it on your own. So, sellers don't sell unless buyers by does that make sense the power the decision the entire transaction only exists when buyers decide to buy, and so therefore, the way that rule sort of manifests itself in practical implications. Is that smart manufacturers, smart producers, or in our case, smart photographers and artists. Will create the kinds of things that they know people WanNa buy if money is the primary objective than you make things that you think people want to buy you anticipate their demands. Essentially keep in mind the what the buyer has to do is say owning that photographic something or other that you've produced is more valuable to me. THAN THE CASH IN MY POCKET? And if the cash is more valuable than the photograph, then they won't engage the exchange of cash for photograph. That's the way business works. Well with that in mind wouldn't it make sense that if what you're really wanting to do is sell photographs and have a website that sells photographs, etcetera. The most fundamental thing you need to do is make the kind of artwork that you know people will want to buy. Well, what people want to buy they. WanNa buy really pretty pictures. You know romantic sunsets they wanna buy pictures of their own family members, professional portrait, and that kind of thing they wanna buy calendar shots. If you will in my youth, we used to use the word calendar shot as a real pejorative term for someone who had sort of. Sold out and sold their artistic soul for the idea of selling prints in the marketplace. Calendar shot would be the kind of thing that people would wanNA hang above the fireplace in all on and because it's fantastic decor and all the colors in it go with the couch. But I suspect that's not why most of you listening to this podcast. Are doing photography. You Might WanNa make money because after all photography's expensive travels expensive and equipment has to be purchased in a Cetera et Cetera. So money is definitely a part of our thinking relative to photography because it requires money a lot more expensive to be a photographer than it is to be a pen and ink artist, for example. So we can't just ignore the requirements for money to fund. Our. Hobby. And a lot of photographers try to. Get that money to support their photographic pursuits? In the marketplace but yet. If you get right down to it and ask them. They're not really interested in making the kinds of photographs that other people demand and WanNa, buy and sort of our calendar shots or whatever the case may be. nude. Nude photography always sells. People don't necessarily want to do that. So. Your motivation is to create personal artwork personally expressive. The things that excite your is those are internal motivations they have nothing to do with the marketplace, but then you turn around and try to put them in the marketplace and earn money. So you can find your pursuits to do more of the kind of work that people don't

Star, prioritizing the time in your life for what you want to do I'm working on creating even more balance in my life with my day job this blog hobbies exercise and resting it takes a lot of time. But as I am prioritizing at all, it's allowing me to input breaks for myself. I cannot stress how important breaks are for your mind body and soul is important to let yourself. And rejuvenate. Taken a few blogging breaks and breaks from all media. You need to get away and focus on what's important. You can't be everything everyone all the time because you stress yourself out and burn out how will be good for anyone. So don't push yourself too far. Instead take a break whether it's a ten minute break that your job gives you and you never take it or it's a fifteen minute walk on your lunch break without looking at your phone. Being stressed and overwhelmed is in good for anyone and I've learned that I'm the type of person that needs rest and take care of myself. So learn to take care of you too. So you can be the healthiest of yourself. Learned to say. No. You can't stretch yourself thin and be everything to everybody. So learn a stand up for yourself and say, no, if you don't want to do something because you just don't feel like it say no. I remember going through a period in my life when I was a people pleaser Al's miserable once I realized that I didn't have to continue being this way and I started saying no to things I didn't want to do and yes to the things I did a made a big difference. Myself as sounds sometimes you gotta put yourself I. I don't even think saying, no is selfish. You can't do it all. So take it from me because I learned that the hard way. Give yourself grace. Mice hard sometimes in too many times we make ourselves feel bad about everything we do is why giving myself grace has become a big aspect of my life. I'm the type of person as extremely hard on myself. I even wrote a post on letting go of control, which is still a struggle at times. We. All worked so hard and giving yourself time to Binge Watch a TV show or sleep an hour later on the weekend is okay. is taking me a while to feel like this I'd be myself up over the little things like I didn't exercise for exactly sixty minutes instead did fifty five minutes I mean who cares the point is that I actually took time out to go to the gym which if you know me a hate exercising. So just give yourself grace and be kinder to yourself. That is what is most important. Make time for your hobbies. My Love Hobbies, I didn't realize. I'm born they were to me until this summer especially since I started running this blog more like a business. So I got back into adult coloring books and creative ways to shoot images. I love photography, but I dismissed it for awhile. Now, I'm into it even more and I'm looking at investing in an even bigger DSL. Our hobbies are a great way to get out of your head and do something purely for enjoyment and start finding that blank space in your life he able to prioritize your hobbies more. Practice minimalism. I mean, need I say more? Practicing minimalism allows you time to focus on what you find valuable and like over the rest. When he simplify your life, you're able to prioritize your time in a way that is perfect for you. You can rest more on weekends and take part in hobbies you enjoy instead of doing something you don't care about. minimalism has shown me that I need to give myself grace. When I need a break is maybe look at everything differently in slowdown because sometimes less really is more.
You Won't Always Be In This Situation
"Find a video streaming as part of a hobby that I eventually want to make into a one of my careers. Well one day I was talking with one of my regulars nihar about how the stream is really gone far. Like it used to be laggy on the game play the audio. You said Echo. It was just like a low-quality experience. Sometimes the the Streamwood to stop or you get dropped frames, which is what either the computer or the internet connection cannot keep up with it. It was just not a fun experience. I feel that my stream that become a lot better since then, but it's interesting to realize. Wow. I'm at a better place and I was then and it kind of made me realize who you are right now. It's not where you're going to end up just because you're struggling with something right now doesn't mean that you always will don't know what you're going through. I know the things that I'm struggling with in my life right now dead. I don't know what you're going through. But I want to encourage you that what's going on right now. You're going to learn from this and it it won't be easy. It's not cuz it's not easy for me right now and some of the stuff that I'm going through Thursday. I really do believe that we're each are going to get through what we're struggling with I use the streaming as an example cuz it's a public-facing example of a something that I've struggled with in my life. I've upgraded my tech over time. I've met proven to the stream. I've become more confident and even in July my internet provider finally, let me get faster internet, which means I've got a stable connection now to Twitch to stream. We are in life. Cuz of us cuz it's because of circumstances like my internet speed and sometimes we have to wait for it to get better. You won't always be in this situation. I don't want to do toxic positivity them. Tomorrow can be great America Baker's hate tomorrow may suck. But I really do believe that you and I will be in a different place and we'll look back at this time be like, wow, I learn from that experience at that time and it's May A different and hopefully better person I'd given up on streaming if I give him on different things. I would not be where I'm at right now because something was difficult. I've given up on it and I've given up on the people things in my life. And I regret those things I've given up on but if I had given up on streaming in this example to use the Zenon girl of the 21st century. I would have regretted it major.

The top of mind resume obviously would be my name and address should not be revealing podcast but I grew up in New York City and I was premed Johns Hopkins University, which is like you know where you go to be premed or any near neither of which I am I intern at Harper's bazaar the summer between junior and senior year and I think that's what kind of really set that light bulb off over my head that I wanted to work at magazines and I wanted to work in particular fashion magazines and Then worked at Elle magazine for three years and I worked at Teen Vogue for seven I was freelance for a bit ditzy consulting, and then I was editor in chief of Lucky for about a year and a half fifteen issues is how I think of it. Then I been at instagram since then for five years do fashion partnerships are you supposed to put like hobbies are skills? There is no right way to do this and I love how you doing it. So yeah what are your hobbies and skills if I were literally? Screaming my resume, my resume reflected. When I just said, I would not get hired. Super. In all over the place, my current hobby is composting and learning about gardening, and I feel like that would be a conversation starter at an interview and my skills are I.

Or maybe if I'm feeling wild and crazy like a gossiper say. I'm very much a homebody. I don't know that people would assume that right off the bat
Interview with Brandi Davis
"All right. So tell us who you are and what you do? Hi, my name is Brandy Davis. I am a graphic and web designer by trade. I am recently entering into the apparel industry we're going websites for my Niche is small businesses. I love helping small businesses and entrepreneurs create their branding and get their sites off and running and able to be profitable for their businesses. Nice. Now before we kind of get more into what you do and your background and everything. I've been doing this check in with everyone this year back of the pandemic. So, how are you kind of holding up during this time? I I'm starting to balance out. Thanks for asking. I'm starting to balance out when it first started that first month was very tough wage literally work came to a stop and understandably. So everyone was scrambling trying to figure out how to shift their business models from events and different song. Things I think stuff started to sort of shift a little bit better for me. Probably around May or June right now. We're starting to wear like on an upswing. So we're starting to get more clients that are looking to now they have a better grasp of what they're doing virtually. And so now they want to execute so things are starting to pick up a little bit more but that first month was like whoa, like it was silent. I had to struggle myself to sort of figure out like, how do I shift to support people in a life that that this ideal for us virtually for it to be a graphic and web designer. This is ideal. But how do I shift my model and Mark it to my existing clients and helps them in a virtual world. So I have a shift a little bit as well as a little scary at first, but it's starting to balance out and feel a little bit more like normal. Nice. What are your work dog? Kind of looking like right now just in general. So I try to balance things out between the graphic and apparel side because I do in-house printing for that piece. So I have sort of like a split day where maybe like the first four to five hours. I'm at this desk designing probably the last and then I do like some mean time in between and then late in the evenings. I'm printing for about another 3 to 4 hours. Wow, and you're doing the the printing in-house. Yes, I would say about 93.3% I know that's a weird number, but about 93% of the printing is done in-house. I used to use an online resource, but now just to kind of keep quality and that's basically to keep quality in shape. I was like, you know, what is an investment, but I need to bring this in house to make sure that I'm giving the customer what they expect. Wow. So you must have a dog I mean, well, I don't know tell me like what does that space look like it is so I'm home base. I am fingers crossed looking to move into the studio space of bigger workspace wage, but it's literally basement Workshop setup. I have a printer that he presses everything all the equipment that I need to treat the garments. I have any other like vinyl cutting different things that I do depending on a designs. It has been self-taught to for certain extent. I was not familiar with any of this at first I had other people that I would work with so long. It's yeah, it's it's not a massive work space but it gets the job done. You know, it's enough to kind of get the job done. I utilize about a fourth of the basement. Okay, I'm curious about that because you mentioned you know that you were doing it online and I know that there's a lot of these sort of print to order type of places where you can just like upload like an EPS birth. Something upload the design and then they'll do the printing but I feel you on the quality. We try to do merge at revision path. Oh God, like two years ago. Yeah and the quad he was definitely very sketchy. Like some people would get the shirts and the image is all glitchy and stretched out and I'm like, oh I didn't expect wage is definitely a trial-and-error with different printers. Yeah, because yet you could have a good run with one printer and then all of a sudden you'll get an image a t-shirt back in your life. This is not how we should look so it is it was so hit or miss and what I didn't like was I would have customers or people it was it luckily. It was people that knew me and so they were reach out and say hey just FYI. This is how a shirt look in case other people call and say something and so that's how I would know because lung Three people who were supporting me in the beginning were friends and colleagues. So they would reach out and say hey this is what I receive. And so then it was like, okay. I have to think about other option and I did do some local printers here in Chicago for a bit, but I still needed to they all had different print processes. So one person might get one shirt printed with screen print and then one person may get a vinyl shirt. And so it was so all over the place that I was like you need to streamline this because at this point it's starting to look more like a hobby business. And so I had to make the investment my family was super supportive everyone around me, you know were super supportive and helping me get support page that Financial place because I was literally diving into something that was way out of my budget, but, you know, we managed to, you know, they were able to support and manage the page. Get everything in place. But yes, it is very sketchy with online printing. Yeah,
Solving The Stress Cycle
"Navigating stress can be challenging at the best times and now in the midst of a global pandemic with concerns for our health and finances were all facing a new set of worries stresses ingrained in our world and day to day lives, and while this might sound overwhelming if we learned to understand it, we can then hopefully break the stress cycle. So. This meets food for thought sees Pharmacist Tunnel for Dr David Hamilton and I explore what stress ready is how we can control it and intern combated Hello David Hi there how are you today of? Thank you for asking I am very very well thank you how about yourself a really good. been working on morning on the bookwork in. Mathematics in Part Team University degree in Maths and physics. So I I was working or not this morning as well. So it's been. A multi tasking morning. Feeling that sounds incredibly strenuous. So just destroying your mind further today. I'm talking about strengthened kindness and self esteem missiles, things today, and let's start by a stat that I wanted to bring up. So research has shown that if adults in the UK. That work seems to be riches convenience through what you just said the biggest stress factor. Now, do you think this could be where businesses are perhaps maybe going wrong in terms of health of their employees and how they looking after them Yeah I think different companies have different different ways of looking at us, I think some companies. Don't really either notice or it's not so much of a big deal. The stresses experienced by employees it is other companies the new of a s really much. Something that they really have ongoing programs like stress management, Magma volt in a couple of companies. Where we've actually look to closing the culture of kindness really as an antidote to stress I think, varies from one company to the next and I think it's just the. You. Know. How How. Much I. I guess the the company not really notices a what's happening with employees in Ho what the Anita? Exactly exactly and I know you do a lot of work as well in the area of even being kind to one enough and the fact that. I the way we speak to one another as well as noticing the effects of stress because there's different types of stress isn't that that can affect us and how we talk to each flea could be a factor the definitely I mean but we have you know what you call acute stress the stuff that just happens. Because of something, maybe even something not necessarily this happened but your your perception, your perspective on on something here the way you look at something for example, and then you get a law of was what you might call episode stress. You may get a lot of a stressor, a succession of them and I think if these we hand and then stress becomes almost a hobby is. Something that you've experienced a law. Then we call that chronic stress and so and that's when I think that's when you stop to associate when people talk about the impact of stress on our health. I think in general we we're more more thinking of the impact of chronic stress can along term stuff that that really does occupy much of our psyche, but really has stone physiological effect.
The Top Facebook Updates You Need to Know
"Facebook continues its recent efforts to Enmesh all of its apps into essentially one single platform just with different flavors whether this is a logical streamlining or an attempt to make development of any individual property that facebook owns impractical is, of course, a debate for another time but we have another example today facebook trying to make it all just one service facebook has unveiled cross App Messaging Communication Between Messenger and Instagram, and basically this will work even. If an instagram user doesn't have a facebook account or vice versa coding tech crunch on instagram users will be presented with an option to update to a new messaging experience that offers the ability to change your chat color react with an Emoji watch videos together set messages to disappear and more as a part of this update. They'll also have the option to chat with friends use facebook the apple inform them the broader set of more fun additions. To the INSTAGRAM inbox will serve as a way to entice users to agree to the upgrade. This decision intern locks users further inside the facebook universe with cross platform messaging interoperability users may see fewer reasons to try a different chat APP as one messaging. APP. Can reach friends and family across two of the world's largest social networks in time facebook clans to fold what's up into the experience to in a further consolidation of its market power. Though many users may choose to update for the fun enhancements. facebook notes can then opt out of being reachable across platforms using new privacy controls. After the fact, through an expanded set of privacy tools, users can specify who can reach their main chats list who is sent to the message requests folder and who can't reach them at all. If an instagram user doesn't want to hear from anyone on Facebook, they can turn this feature off and quote. Giving, users at choice and the to opt out. Just, forcing people to do what you want them to do. That's not the facebook we know, right? But then maybe they'll get to that eventually because unification is clearly in the wind facebook also introduced account center a tool for managing the growing number of settings across facebook, instagram and Messenger. It's found in the setting section of each of these. APPS. Quitting tech crunch. Again, in the new settings area, you'll also be able to make adjustments to your stories post for instance, whether you want your stories to publish to facebook and Instagram at the same time though not available at launch facebook said, it will add facebook pay to the account center later this year as well in the US you'll then. Be Able to enter your payment information in one place and use it across both facebook and instagram. When you make purchases like in the new facebook and instagram shops or when you make donations, facebook says users who choose to use account center won't have to publicly use the same identity across all facebook. You could, for instance, continue to use a personal profile on facebook while using instagram to promote your business or hobbies but the feature will likely be more useful for those who do maintain the same identity across platforms as you can do things like sink your profile photo across APPs and quote.
Discussing Minimum Maneuvering Speed
"I have one question Jason. What whether you're talking about the G. NS everyone's talking about this determine minimum maneuver speed. You heard about that yeah. Yeah I've heard about it This is the thing that Dan Rider I think I put forward with slight chops rate where There's kind of a lot to talk about their there really is on let me just before we get into the conversation. Let me tell you something that occurs in my life. All the time is that nobody wants to Staal you're playing nobody wants to spend the airplane everybody reads that if you bank in Airplane and your stall speed increases so because this conversation is so prevalent in the community and people are reading this kind of stuff before they come down flying lessons when I get new private students more often than not I mean guessing seven out of ten maybe or at least half of the people I fly. When they start to turn that base leg start picking up speed like so you know where we're at the beam position, they pull the power to idle certainly down at eighty five and you know the whole real point of landing is slowing down progressively as you are on the pattern. But what they do they turn basis sort of push forward presumably out of fear that they're gonNA stall. So we come around the base screaming at like ninety nights and it's just it's never gonNA work. You know you're not gonNA get to speed to be able to land and just feels really weird. And usually when I see that students, we go out to the practice area. We go up and we start drilling into that edge the below we do accelerated stalls so you can feel. How hard you have to pull in a bank with to see bubble. To really get that to happen. Understand, how slow you can actually find as I wanted to uncover the truth because I feel like when people know what the airplane can really do, they won't behave some. You know they will. Exaggerate the countermeasure so much. So I, get a little concern when I hear about minimum I don't know what they're calling a minimum maneuvering speed I guess is that what it is? I get a little concerned that it's kind of that same thing like it's a big band aid on the idea that people don't really understand what's happening and it feels like a really big band aid. Let's just. You know. Hack it at the knees, cut down all the trees. So there's no fire, right like it's just it doesn't It's too much of a reaction on the other side of the coin is, and that is what dancing is look. The reality is if you don't get slow enough to stall, YOU'RE NOT GONNA stall spending lose control the rate so. On that point is is taking I. I don't really recommend IT I. Can probably tell from what I'm saying I prefer to really lift up the Rock and teach people what happens like why it's happening how it happens when it feels like when it's happening when it starts to look like when it's happening I'm just feels like two big abandoned me and maybe in a in a in a you know there's certain things I'm young. Someone talking. But as It lasts as in bigger airplanes. We fly a little bit differently. You know like you put two engines out there you flying in A. In a transport category aircraft something like that we very rarely bank more than twenty degrees at were way in front of the airplane, not putting big g loads on the airplane. Replanning really far out I can see in an airplane that you know that that type of. Abandoned or whatever it is might work. You know that you're never going to lose control the airplane but I think in a light airplane not sure that's going to help the people that are actually losing control the airplane on base to final because when you look at the exit a really happening, you keep hearing me say to people at sea level is like when you when you take that. person who's been learning to people at sea level and put them in an environment where maybe they have four people on board maybe the air is a little thin. There's distractions maybe the passengers are talking air traffic control is talking and they get you know distracted like that women at Houston Hobby Airport crash where she was you know lost control the airplane. and I wonder if some speed on the airspeed indicator is going to help in that
How to Invest: Meaning and the 3 Circles
"How to invest meaning and the three circles by Phil town of rule one investing dot com. Investing for beginners. Circle of competence. The most important thing. I can tell you about becoming a great investor is to focus on your circle of competence. What that means is that area of the world that you live in that, you actually know quite a lot about for most beginning investors. We sort of think we don't know anything about anything I know I certainly felt like that when I started off. But in fact, my teacher told me to start by looking for meaning in each investment. Invest in a business that means something to you. Try to buy businesses that really mean something to you to start with, I have to find out more about me. What actually means something to me what do I actually know something about To figure it out I, want to look at the three circles exercise. Choose Industries you're interested in. What we're doing is loading in industries where we already have a lot of knowledge I'm pretty good at computer software and services as well as Internet hardware, real estate, stuff, clothing, personal items, automotive, and getting those off of this list. If I see things that I made really already know quite a lot about like, let's say leisure and media recreation entertainment hobbies. I just read the description and you can see some of the stocks are in. That category, for example, storm and Ruger and company they make guns and I like guns. So I'm adding Leisure and media to my list. Now, we'll see that leisure and media is on my list and I'm on to the next part of the three circles, which is talent circle to add to that. So you go through each of these circles and simply save and continue by putting on items that you know you already know a lot about. How to choose a business? That is right for you? The first one is passions. The second one is talent. What are you really talented at? What do you know a lot about what can you be world class at and the third one is where you spend your money. So you start to look for things that are in all three of these save them and the program will go out and find industries that matched the talent passions and money circles that you already put up. Now you can see this has come up with a pretty darn good list so it started. OFF THAT I wasn't sure I'd have any companies I might know anything about and it turns out. There are many many companies that I know a lot about for example, let's go over and look at recreational vehicles that sounds like something I might know a bit about what I get is a list of all the companies that are in the recreational vehicle industry group. You can see it's got Harley Davidson and they make motorcycles polaris makes no machines and four wheelers Arctic cat make snow machines winnebago makes those big Winnebago's right. I already know something about these companies. These are companies that I have some connection with in my life. Why we care about understanding a business. So. Why do we care about understanding the business? Well, in one if we buy one share of a company, it's as if we bought the entire company when I buy one share of something I, feel like I own the entire business. Investing, tip the my rule. One Way to think about this is that imagine that my uncle gave me a billion dollars to go out and buy a company with. But the rules were that only get to by one company and that company would be the only way I, make money the whole rest of my life, and if that company went under I would have to live on welfare. So I by every company that I look at it as if it's the only company, my uncle will let me by this is a great rule. You should think about it, I, call it my uncle rule. Investing tip the ten ten rule. I also have what's called a ten ten rule. It says, I'm not going to own a company for ten minutes unless I'm willing to own it for ten years. So if I'm going to buy a company and be willing to own it for ten years, he'd better be something I like and matches my value systems I'm passionate about it I. Love It. I'm talented at it and I spend my money in it. Conclusion. Those are the things that make me connect to my investments and the more I connect with my investments the more I own it as if I owned the whole business, the more I understand the meaning of the business, the better investor I'm going to be.
My Husband's New Hobby is Harrassing People
"Corona virus arrived in February and my husband retired in May, like the rest of us he is in doing what he planned gone. Ernie thoughts of traveling attending sports events or picking up a job as a substitute teacher I worried at first about what he would do when he retired he doesn't Gulf or fish and has never had hobbies. But I didn't need to worry he's found a new hobby and it's consuming hours of his time. He is now harassing people. The other day he spent an hour on the phone with our Internet provider. He found out he could save twenty dollars a month by cancelling his current contract and starting out as a new customer by the end of their conversation. He had lowered our bill by sixty dollars the day before that, he spent three hours talking to the insurance company. When he got off the phone, he said I got our premiums reduced and there's no copay. Last. Week, we got a check for one hundred and fifty dollars in the mail. What's this check for I ass? That's from the class action suit. He said class action suit. Yeah. That's why I was on the phone. So Long I looked through our records and found out we were eligible for some money. Today I opened an envelope and a fifty dollar check fluttered out. That's a refund for overpaying our dental bill. My husband said I was on the phone with them for three hours I had to speak with four different managers before the agreed it was their mistake. At first I was irritated by his endless hours on the phone. But now I'm enjoying his hobby I like watching checks drift in but even better than a cheque is my brand new stainless steel oven. Yes. You heard me right I I have a brand new stainless steel oven. Are Old of and broke and we have a yearly service contract for appliance repairs. The service company sent out a repairman, but he needed to order a part only the oven was so old the part no longer existed. My husband got out the service contract and read all twenty six pages until he got to the fine print. Do you see this he jabbed a finger at a line of print the size of fire ants. I can't see it even when my glasses on what's it say? I, ask. It says, if can't fix our appliance, they have to buy a new one. I didn't believe even with his success ed acquiring checks that somebody would give us a free appliance. I was wrong. It took him six emails, four phone calls and some texting back and forth. But we finally got to pick out a gleaming new stainless steel oven, several more phone calls and the service company installed it for free. I think you wore them down I said. I thought this was his biggest harassment success story but there's more talked our daughter into buying a service contract with the same company. But when her washing machine broke, the repairman couldn't fix it after a month of going to the LAUNDROMAT and washing clothes outside in a plastic kids swimming pool she called. Dan Do you have any suggestions we've been without a washing machine for a month. Did you read the fine print of your contract? My husband said I think you can get a new washing machine give them a call. She called them but she was too busy to spend hours on the phone and her husband is more like me. He likes the tenacity in the stomach for the necessary blitz Craig phone calls. So my husband went to work only this time it looked as if success would elude him. They sent another repairmen out, but it still doesn't work. Right our daughter complained they said, I'm not eligible for a new one. My husband escalated the situation. He even stayed on the phone when we were taking our walks, you go ahead of me. He said, as soon as we headed down the sidewalk, I've got a manager on the line. This went on for three days and then our daughter called with good news. She had a new washing machine. I can't believe it. She said no washing clothes and the kids poll. Today. My husband is on the phone with the mortgage company. I don't know what they're talking about, but it's a long conversation.

It was very very romantic and classy drinking at a Bar I was twenty four. He was actually I met him in a studio. He was recording music with a producer that I was and he and his band. We're like all eighteen nineteen years old and I was like twenty two, and they were sliding up and down the studio halls tube socks I remember thinking. These guys are fun and wild, and they were so funny in great and talented so I, was kind of knew him not well. And then we ended up working the same producer. Get in that that was working produced. That's how I knew each other, and then later on a few years. Later I was at this bar because I was gonna all the time you know, get my flirt on. Get my drink on trying to. Mix and mingle. And I saw him at the Bar, Do you? What are you doing in? This weird guy was trying to flirt with me a chocolate being. It sounds like you talk to me like. Distract this guy away from me, so we ended up talking about I thought he was so young because he was like three and a half years younger than me. I was like I.

"Okay so this. I'm doing. Answering your questions about me I've gotten so many raw talking to me saying you need to tell your story. You didn't answer questions. You introduce yourself. So. Let me introduce myself. My name is Caroline Hobby. In thirty six years old I am from Texas I grew up. Great Family My Dad's a dentist. My Mom taught philosophy at Baylor University of an older sister named Kathryn, and she is married to an amazing guy named Willie they have a little girl named genevieve. His nine interviewed Willie Catherine engine. Vive. All My podcasts, so go check out the powers. They Adam Powers Willie bowers and Jimmy thouars. And I grew up in a really great family. My family taught me great morals and commitment and love each other support each other. And it was great Then moved to Nashville am not say I didn't have my own personal struggles, or whatever along the way, but as far as having a loving family I was very blessed. Then? I went to Belmont University in Nashville move to national. Be a country music singer. And I ended up forming a trio with Jennifer. Wayne and Taylor Lynn Jennifer Wayne is now in runway June and they're kicking butt. Doing so great in Tayla, is she? Her Grandmother's? Loretta Lynn Jen's grandfathers. John, Wayne. Taylor now is in a duo with conway, twitty's son and She and Conway twitty son. Do do it and they travel all over the country pre, covid. Covering Loretta and Twitty Conway Twitty, which is amazing, so we ran this band stealing angels for about seven years. All over the country open for everybody. did a USO tour went to Iraq. It was amazing. It was such an amazing experience and I. Feel like that is really. What honed my skills. I guess to say of interviewing because in that trio interview interview after interview after interview, and you're entertaining. People and I just started to realize good questions. What was engaging what I wanted to know when I felt like I was as good bad questions, and like I just started to realize. The Art of interviewing and getting stories out, and I really loved having telling Stories Aston. Getting. Interesting things out of people and I learned that from being in a band. Also after my band, stealing angels fell apart, Jan and I went on the amazing race, and that's on CBS, and it's a race around the world. Obviously, that's not happening now with COVID, but Jan and I did it two times. We did season twenty two, so watch it. We're the country singers. We're both single and freaking boy crazy. Kosh on my God. So we did amazing race season twenty two, and we got fourth place, which was really awesome, so made in the season finale, and then we got ask back to do all stars, and we got second place. We almost won the whole thing on our all-stars season twenty four, and all is like where they ask like the favorite teams to comeback all compete on one season, so it was so much fun. Seeing the world open my eyes so much. It made me realize that we are also similar, and people have so much of the same desires which I feel like is just. To provide for their families to have a happy life to live in community into love and be loved, and I got just got to see so many different cultures living beautiful lies in seeing how everyone lives so differently, but yet we are are so much the same. So, it was just an incredible opportunity to travel the world and do Jin. We had so much fun. We were so supportive of each other, whenever towards other down a lot of teams on the amazing race will self destruct, because it's so stressful like you're doing the most stressful things like one time Jin. had a jump into a muddy river and swam laps to grab a clue and in a wet suit and the freezing cold. It's just crazy. You're driving all over countries that you can't speak the language or on the opposite side of the road driving stickshift barely drive a stick shift at one time. I forgot turn of the parking brake noodle, the highway and like a car started. I was like Oh my gosh. I'M GONNA blow up on accident. And it's just high pressure because. Everytime on airplane like as soon as it lands. You have to have your back. BE READY TO DART out because you've got the first cab and try to get to the next place. I to beat on the other teams. Because every second counts, so mean is adrenaline adrenaline adrenaline, and it is so easy to self destruct, but Jan and I stayed so positive and we. We just decided to assume the best in each other and to work as a team always into know that we are always trying our best. Don't tear each other apart and we did we did that. We did that the whole time and I have to say that's probably one of my greatest accomplishment is how great Jinnai worked as a team and loved each other and. Had Fun and didn't yell and scream and tear each other down, so that was amazing. And then after amazing race. I came back to Nashville. Had moved to Texas for a brief stint, because I met my husband, and between all this like before amazing race I had started dating Michael Hobby. He's in the Banda. Thousand Horses. We did for four years and then we broke up. The caller halftime show. And I moved to Texas to be with my family and that's what amazing race happened. And then after I finished doing the maze and move back to Nashville to work at a record label. I was a record I went from singing to the amazing race in in Austin is teaching music to kids in the little school called music together so sweet just trying to figure out my life lost. I've had many seasons of feeling super loss so. For All of you guys who you have gone through phases, or you're feeling loss. Know that I'm right there with you. My life has been waves. It's been highs and lows and. Feeling totally lost in between, but looking back now all the seasons are so important and I'm hopeful all of them so after amazing race a move back that to Nashville and I started working a record label I started. Doing promotion which is were you promote an artist to radio? You take artists around, and they have a single pushing radio. You take all the radio stations in Gen and I did that together promoting Natalie sobol to radio. She was artist which is so amazing, because now Natalie is in Jin's band runway. June, it's just crazy. How full circle everything is like? You have no idea how everything's working together when it's happening, and then you look back years later and like Dang. That's nuts that those relationships. Form so early on in such different roles, and then like it can circle back around to see Natalie now join runaway June. Has Been so cool because she's so talented. Genzer talented Naomi talented, and they're all such great talented singer Seagal. Make sure to check out in June. They have a new song out there we are. We were rich and it's amazing. They're so talented. Surgeon workings promotion was US nothing. Jin Wasn't an unmanned either that time. She was doing promotion with me and we were promoting Nellie sobol. The now John Frat Flash Board Jin is now on a band, so it's like you never know when you're gonNA end up a successful You never know what's GonNa lead to what? So when I was doing promotion, I and I was awesome. Song Plugger, which is pitching songs had writers that works for the company I worked for, and they would turn in songs to me and I would listen, and I would decide who I thought. She reported that song at which country artists and then I would either pitch it to their manager to the artists themselves today and our person, which is the person who listens for Music Barness anyway I could get that song to the artist's to try to get that recorded on that artist's album that I thought it would be fit for so..

"They aren't looking for accommodation. They are looking to impose their psychotic culture war bullshit on everyone else right yet. It goes back to exactly what I said before. Which is that hobby lobby what they would like to be able to say is we don't want our employees spending their wages that they earned at our company on things we object to and again if a Muslim owner was saying right like I, don't know I, don't want my. He's spending a lot of money on food because it's Ramadan, it's. Insane it's. It's ridiculous, right? It's wild because it's like it's not saying like you want an exemption from the law. It's like seeing the law doesn't apply to us to have to notify you that we're not complying with the law. Because we just we're just not going to obey the law like not for us. I mean it's, it's just placing hobby lobby's religion as they describe it right above the rights of everyone else regardless of what those rights look like substantively right, you might be listening to this and be a little bit confused because. In the early to mid two thousands, the political right had sort of centralized around religion. Right on the Bush Years Evangelical Christianity felt like it was the driving force behind American conservatism. Yeah, and now it feels that the right has become completely untethered from it. and. That might feel to you as if those are just sort of different. Ideologies or something, but it's important to remember that. Religion is not their ideology fascism is yes. Fascism is about control centered in a small group and religion is just leverage to these people. And that's not to say that there aren't people probably like Sam Alito who are religious ideologues? Religious zealots show yeah, but the movement is not driven by zealotry right religion is just a symbol that they are good and right, and that is a guiding light for them to sort of. Allow themselves to suppress their opposition by whatever means necessary. Their goals in their mission are righteous right?.

"All right, and now we get to the meat of this because. Even if you accept that hobby lobby is a religious corporate entity protected by Refrige- The question is whether the requirement that they provide contraceptive insurance to their employees is a quote. Burden on their exercise of religion right and when talking about the burden, the court talks about the fines under the law. If they continue to violate it, which are in fact substantial, so they're facing a one hundred dollars. A day per person is the fine that's built into law, but that's not what the analysis should be. The analysis should be whether complying with the law burdens, hobby lobby and the court really doesn't address that. That at all, which which is completely nuts, because it's the central question of the entire case..

"Legal and illegal antiquities market without having a clue about the history, the material features cultural value fragilities and problems of these objects. He also said I don't understand isn't a lobby where hobbies. All this assay is you know we're gonNA walk through this and be talking about like these people's religious beliefs in sort of assuming that they have some level of sincerity to them or whatever, but these people are deeply to their core, some of the dumbest people on the planet. To keep it in mind. Yes, that's right and too dumb to rich. That's right so as we've mentioned the claim here is that the requirement of the ACA that employers provide insurance for contraception is a violation of Riffa and one important aspect of this is that refer doesn't forbid laws from imposing on people's religious beliefs as re mentioned, what it does is subject. Those laws too strict scrutiny. Scrutiny meaning they must be serving a compelling purpose must be the least restrictive means of achieving that purpose, and we've talked about strict scrutiny before, and just like in those cases here. You don't really need to know the details right? The real point is at the ACA has an exception for religious institutions, such as churches and other religious nonprofits and They don't have to provide coverage for. Contraception under the ACA and what the court says here as Hobby, lobby should be able to opt out to 'cause. They're like a religious company. And similar to citizens united our second episode, the Fundamental Problem here in my view is this ruling that corporate entities somehow hold religious beliefs or the same religious beliefs as the people who run them allows corporations to have it both ways i. they get to take advantage of the corporate form by creating a corporation that they can hide behind to limit their liability in the event. These sued or go bankrupt, or whatever right right so they're. They're benefiting in that case from the separation of them as individuals and the corporation has an entity, but then when it suits them that separateness goes away, and suddenly their personal beliefs about religion are shared by the corporation itself and. Again. As we discussed in that in the citizens, united episode of the entire purpose of the corporation, as a concept is to separate for legal purposes, the owners ended the entity. So this is flipping bat on its head right, and rather than like recognize enshrined to work around the absurdity of all this. The majority actually leans into it. They say look. It's unfair that we're forcing people to choose between their religious beliefs and forming a corporation. But. That's not unfair. That's as link the natural result of being able to insulate yourself from liability by operating through a non senti entity. That's the definition of fairness. Yeah it's a trade off right and that's the point of it, and it brings up a sort of interesting side point, which is that if hobby lobby's owners were really dedicated to their religion, they could employ all of their employees directly right. You don't need to form a corporation at all. Nothing is stopping them from striking contracts between them personally and their employees, which would give them a much stronger religious objection here because there wouldn't be a corporate entity in the way, but of course they. They don't do that. They wouldn't allow themselves to be exposed to that level of liability, right? That's why they formed a corporation. They want to take advantage of the corporate form..

"Yeah, yeah I think that's right, but after that opinion is issued, lots of people are Super Big Mad, so a bunch of groups get together including the ACLU the National Association of Evangelicals which I think. There's a whole podcast episode. Maybe, not this podcast that's like a critique of the new, and like what it means if the ACLU is partnering with the National Association of Evangelical but whatever. Else I right. Okay anyways! So the a bunch of groups get together, they're screaming about religious freedom. Saying the government shouldn't be able to substantially burden an individual's free exercise of their faith in this way, and so like as a direct response Congress passes Riffa in Nineteen ninety-three. So what Riffa says is that the government may substantially burden a person's exercise of religion, only if the government demonstrates that application of the burden to the person is the least restrictive means of furthering a compelling governmental interest in other words, if someone's exercise of religion is substantially burdened by a law, the government has to show that it has a really good reason for that law, and that it used the least burdensome method it possibly could so for. For example there was a case that came up under Riffa called Gonzales versus Oh Centro, and in that case of the Supreme Court said that members of a church could not be prosecuted. After the feds seized a Sacramento teeth that contained to schedule one legal substance, and in that case, the court said that the government didn't have a compelling interest. They hadn't shown a good enough reason for banning that specific drug, and so it failed under Riffa. These are my religion. Mental with, schedule one drugs in it. Behind us. Yeah, I'm finding religion as this bad guest goes along. I just WanNa note really quickly that there's like some debate in this case between the majority and the dissent and I think Ginsburg, and dissent gets the better of it. which is that like this law? The were describing it might sound like very sort of expansive, but it's about establishing what the status quo was. Before this Peyote case, there was a line of cases that had used basically this test in the legislative history and the language with the lot self references, those cases and it's supposed to be like. A pretty low key like we're just going back to how the were the same protections as they are yeah, but as we'll discuss, the majority instead uses that language like fucking, you know. Drive a truck through this tiny little pinhole accepts. Yes, so that's a good point. Yup, so we get refresh in nineteen ninety-three, and then like Peter set up top. The affordable care act is passed in two thousand ten and one result of Obamacare is that all twenty contraceptive methods approved by the FDA are now fully covered by most employer based healthcare plans now.

"On today's episode of five to four Peter. and Michael are talking about religious freedom. In two thousand fourteen, the supreme. Court ruled in Burwell V. Hobby lobby that for profit, corporations may be exempt from laws and regulations. They object to on religious grounds. The ruling came just a short time ago. The Arts and crafts retail chain will not be forced to pay to cover certain forms of contraceptives for their employees issues combining abortion religious liberty, obamacare, a corporate rights all into this one ruling today a we heard the ruling from the five conservative justices ruin in favor of hobby lobby. This is five to four podcast about how much the Supreme Court sucks. Welcome to five to four where we dissect and analyze the supreme court cases that have undermined America's integrity like water seeping into our homes foundation. I am Peter Twitter's the law boy I'm here with reaction. What a Pie! and Michael Everybody. And today we're talking about Burwell v Hobby, lobby stores. Aka Hobby lobby as it is better known hobby lobby. Hobby lobby all right, let's. Team I told you guys this right that I cannot stop like seeing that in my head. It's a Hurricane Chris Song about Halle Berry. Say? Go on in our citizens united episode we discussed the inherent absurdity of corporations having the right to political speech. Hobby lobby takes that issue digs a little deeper and asks us can afford profit corporation have a religion Kenneth Company, that sells arts and crafts supplies sincerely believe that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ prohibits ladies from using contraception. The answer is yes. Of course it is. What else could? This. This actually isn't a First Amendment case. This is a case about two laws the affordable, Care Act Aka obamacare requires employers to cover certain basic contraception in their employer provided health care plans, but hobby lobby argues that this violates the religious. Freedom Restoration. Act, better known as Riffa which requires that laws accommodate the exercise of religious beliefs. They are religiously opposed to contraception, and so they claim they shouldn't have to provide it. The real bottom line of this case is that the court has endorsed a theory of corporations whereby these legal entities which are basically just stacks of paperwork can have their own beliefs, and that has led us down this path of increasing absurdity..

"There's no use in that. What's the worst that can happen? You know at the end of the day. If I were to lose you know if I were to get in a lawsuit over business and you know one of my employees rex vehicle and you know. There's so many things that could happen that you know if if if if all this happens I still have family. That loves me. There's no amount of. There's nothing I could do. That would cheat me from having a place to live with my kids and being able to feed them because of the family support system that I have and I feel like God would not fail me and that if in the event you know something happens tragically and I lose. You know something happened in the business. I have enough faith at this point to know that. That's because something else is coming down the road and whenever I start to get overwhelmed and and I don't know stressed I always you know. Get quiet and just go through that whole thought process. That really leads me back to realizing that the stress I feel is from the blessings that I have you know. I'm feeling stressed over. Always blessings and it is a lot but most sources can happen. Where am I gonNA end up and you know even if I did and up there? I know that God putting me on the right path so you know at some point get so far off that he's gotTa just completely completely knocked me down so I gotta stand up and be walking the other direction. I don't know But I have have grown in phase in that Since because everything I feel like in the past everything that's happened that at the time Felt like was a tragedy at the time. I felt like you know I wouldn't be able to overcome or moved past. It's always lead me to something better that I had no idea about and you know I can't know the future. I don't know what's in store but I trust you know he does and if you know if if he's keeping me from something that I feel like is great you know. There's something even better. I just got to trust that. Keep going love that man vets in love that wraps up my last question. I always ask is leave your light inches. A very broad question. Whatever COMES TO MIND? What do you want people to know? Think I would like for people to know no matter what setbacks they have in life and no matter where they're at that and it seems Kinda Cliche to say that you know you can be who you wanna be but you really can. I was divorced with two children hours. Waiting tables and kind of you know could have been at the bottom point my life but I can remember deciding that wasn't at the bottom that I was. I was at the starting line and that you know this was this was my chance but you know you you can take everything that is That that is bad and wrong in your life and use it to do something wonderful. No matter how I mean no matter how bad or how wrong things are. I feel like you can use that to fuel something great in your life and if you feel like you can't believe that if you become close with God and if you pray with him he gives you the strength and he gives you the ability to see that that through him. You can do all things so I don't know I guess that. Just take away that. Don't don't use it. Don't use your excuses as crutches. Use them as.

"So I have five sisters and seven brothers off. Avi y'all would share one room. I mean that's a yeah totally I can see why you want your own space a little bit. Yeah there's a big age gap no. My youngest. Three sisters was really May and Christine. And Maggie's there's really three of us that Kinda shared a room With me being the oldest I was kind of gone before the last couple were coming along. I mean my youngest brother is Sixteen now so there's a pretty big in my oldest brother's thirty six and there's twenty years between the oldest and the youngest but you know we. We didn't have a lot. We had everything we needed. We you know we ate off the farm. We never missed a meal. You know there wasn't anything I needed that I didn't have but it did. I feel like kind of make me WanNa work to have some of the things that you know. I didn't have as a child even though I'm thankful for that childhood because I feel like it made me who I am But whenever I think about you know being at the end of my life in and wanting to look back and see a success that to me is more about family and the people in the relationships you know. I do want to how nice things I do want to. Have you know big house on the lake with a Pool? And you know we live in the life but at the same time You know way I really want to focus my time. Is the relationships. And the people that are important to me and family's always been huge for me like I said I mean that's I grew up with family. You know that was. That was my friends that was was it. You know. Have brothers and sisters and we did everything together and We'RE STILL ALL PRETTY. Dang close and we'd still do a lot together An are now so fun because so their thirteen children. You know my parents had thirteen. There is twenty grandchildren already. And still like that. Part's not even halfway done. But you know it's just a look at my parents and I think you know they. They gave all they had to us and I to me. I look at them as the richest people in the world. They don't have a nice house they don't have a nice vehicles are all the fancy high-end whatever but they are never not surrounded by people that love them you know and they. They've really built their wealth. You know that so when I do. I can't say that that I don't think about wanting you know nice things because I do you know when it comes down to Ashton actually asked me the other day one of those questions. Would you rather this that one of them was? Would you rather live in a mansion with nobody or live in a tiny house with ten people and I just laughed and I was like you know? Of course I would live in Alberton Ally so I love that gives nugget perspective. I learned so much from you all the time and I feel very thankful to have married to Mr with you. I'm GONNA wrap up. I have a couple more questions than than we can come out of hiding out of are. I'm doing this applies. What have you learned from being married to landed about like being a partnership being a wife like what have you learned that so really. Don't want to answer that without saying that we him and I both were married previously in relationships. That didn't work out and you know it's like I wish I met you. I wish we got married. I but the reality is that both of us went through what we went through for a reason and we both appreciate you know what each other's gone through and we appreciate what we have now and there's like a I don't know kind of a mutual respect for each other and in that way you know we are two very different people and I think that really for me just continuing to try to learn and understand who he is. I mean we've been married for two thousand twelve eight years now And you know I guess you never really true. We can completely understand who someone is because they're constantly changing and you know an older couples always have fights while you're not who I married. You're not who used to be and you can't be you know every event that you go through every day of life that you live is continuing to mold and shape you into the person that you are the next day or the next day or the day after that and I think that if you can try for me I try and understand. His personality is very different for Mine and he does the same with me and we definitely have our arguments in our fights because we do work together and you know we have a lot of stress with having a business and with I'd get having five children You know there's there's a lot that comes into play with that and we I know a lot of Women men to would appreciate hearing that we have a blended family but you know we have five kids so lane and had a daughter and I had the two boys but since we marry. We've both adopted each other's children so we have a full-time household five children that are all mine. And all his Not that they wouldn't be otherwise but it is still difficult to try and Mesh families and you still have different dynamics that come into play and I was a step parent for a long time. As was he. And it's hard to have stepchildren. It's hard to go through all of that I think when you really just decide that you're gonNa love someone in your all in you know you just dive in you. Don't give yourself the option of not being with them. You figure out how to work stuff out and I do believe that you know most everybody can work out in unit. That's maybe could work things out with my ex husband. I've talked about this before and someone's like well. You know if everybody can work things out you know why are you still not with him not probably could have but. I do think that there is a time and a place for people not to be together but I think everything in life lead you somewhere for a reason and for the most part the arguments that we have you know the time they mean a lot and you know her personal to both of us usually but at the end of the day. They're not important things and I know he loves me and you know every time we fight. I know we're going to get through. It is just how we're going to navigate it but I don't know that's a really agree with you like you just have to decide and go all in. Yeah and that's one thing I have learned about marriage because now Michael Together. I think we've been together since two thousand eight. Is that when you land in together? We are a little bit but the Michael broke up in between. I have learned from being married to him in having a child with outs like people have this fantasy of marriage that it's like storybook and it's like a movie in it's You know like every time you make love your like throwing each other up against the wall and it's like fireworks are going off in. It's just like you to La. I'm not saying this moments don't happen. But it's like on the day to day life. It is like your navigating life in combining why and personalities and everything that is Michael is now me and everything is not him and it's like then you have a kid together. It's like it's just you just have to decide to love this person in accept them and realize all of their great traits and then I feel like to me I now I I the uptight and anal and like I can critique. I have all these things I think need to happen in live in. I'm just like starting to realize really and I think quarantine is doing a good job that like rounding off some edges for me just like have a great good guy who loves me. You shows up works hard who loves our daughter. We may not do everything exactly the same the same way but like the core fundamental things are there. What more can you ask for? Truly everything else is just the the stuff that happens in life and when you combine. Lhasa someone you're GonNa get a whole bunch of shit with it too you know but it's not bad. It's just learning how to address this issue. Taking on someone's life now would it's the the thought of the idea of when you watch a love story or a movie. That's there what I was about the other day with their facebook. Real like their highlight. Reel like you're looking at you. Know the the most wonderful parts just like you know the things that people typically share on social media you know. That's not yes that's real life but you know that's the picture perfect life. There is always all the stuff in between. That's the real life. That's the real beauty that you know grungy dirty you know getting into fighting it out and get into the other side and realizing that you can have disagreements and you're going to argue but you can get past that you know you can. You don't have to you know you're not gonNa always see things the same way And I think that communication is one of the biggest. I don't know one of the biggest problems that if we're ever arguing or fighting or upset about something it's a lack of communication and once you can understand where that person's coming from and they understand where you're coming from you. Usually you know it kind of makes sense and you. Can you can navigate from there but Yeah it's it's tough especially having kids and all all the emotions and live. Life is quite challenging. What do what do you do to center yourself whenever you feel overwhelmed and like you have so much going on? How do you get back to a peace and calm and centeredness? You know I do have a lot of stress issues and a lot of responsibilities because I do. I run a a nation wide glass business with you. Know Logistics Nightmares and Right now we're we're running all the stuff from our homes because we're corentin home and there's a. There's a lot of things that come up that Stress me out with work. That puts me kind of on edge with family life and vice versa. You know you try not the mix family and work. But it's I mean it's who you are where how much you're putting out but Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed and stressed I really try and get to a quiet place and I showed you my Blow Quiet Yoga Room. I've got a little screened in porch. That is just really just my my quiet place I can go out and sit and sometimes do yoga and sometimes just sit there and Her right I like to write things down but you know always go back to thinking. Whatever I'm stressed about being stressed is not gonNA do anything to help the.

"You'RE GONNA love it. So you're saying something about you. Listen to God like you. Let him guide you. I love when people say that. 'cause I always like to know how do you know and God is guiding? I like to know that to be nice if it was a little clearer and easier One of the things I was kind of fixing to say earlier is that sometimes. I think that I'm a little eager on thinking that. Oh this is this is my opportunity got sent this and Kinda jump in from path to path and I have tried to You know when things come up. I'm I'm not as I guess to make decisions real hastily like if if an idea presents itself left like is a good idea a really try to pray over it and you know just. Kinda feel in my heart if it continues to pull at me and I feel like you know. It's something that I need to do. I've really in the past done so many things that you know. Just maybe I should be doing that. I've had had an insurance agency. I had a Personal Training Company. I Bought several tanning salons while lane and was Outta town. One time you know got into the Dany Biz us so you know like jump you know really learned that just because something jumps in front of you in a shiny you know. It's not necessarily something that God put their Not that those were not put there by God but I will say that you know I've had a lot of struggles with things that I felt would be blessings and I think that you know. Maybe God put him there as lessons So you know. I don't think that I think that the closer you are with God and the more you communicate and open and almost like a daily conversation. I feel like things become a little clearer clearer. But it's not ever like you know. Follow the yellow brick road. And you know exactly where to go and I do think that you know you steer off of that path often but as long as you're in that communication I'd guide you back to where you need to be and I don't feel like if you know if your heart's right if you're in the place you know I guess being okay to to follow his plan whatever that might be no matter how far off you. He's always going to guide you back. So how does it guide you back? 'cause like for me. I know I've really kind of the same thing I've had a lot of different career paths Directions and like I now have identified for me personally. I also agree like being constant prayer is really important to me. Like always coming communicate with God talking with God but like I know now when I feel a ton of resistance and when I am like trying to walk through the door it feels like mixing Stomach or makes me feel like it's GonNa be very hard not like hard is GonNa take a lot of work because I also loved work instead. It's like not scared of working hard hard feeling where this is just like heavy like it's almost like you have a big boulder on your back. I just feels like Iggy am. That's to me like when I get that feeling. I sort of know okay. Maybe this is not the road I need to go down because when things fall into line for me an when everything sorta it's even if it's a ton of work to do but if it's like all filings line if it's work that. I loved to do if it makes me feel good then. I feel like that sort of how I know when I'm in line with God had how do you know like how does it play out for you I think that uses different things I feel like in at different points in my life that I you know. I think that God knows how to get our attention. If you're listening and the things that catch my attention now the things that you know would stop me in my tracks now are than they were you know. Years Ago I agree with you on the resistance saying I also feel like you know just as much as I believe. God's will do feel like the devils real and that you know sometimes things are thrown at you trying to get you off the right path you know and just like shiny objects are you know may not be for you know. Maybe it's a distraction or something that you're not supposed to go after. I think that the most important thing is really have in that relationship and knowing what you're feeling inside so like you said if you're just not feeling good about it it's probably not right and you know. Sometimes it's it gets point of just asking God you know. I'm I'm really not feeling good about this. Can you show me a sign can you? You know if if This wrong you know. Give me some light. Show me that you know. I shouldn't be having this feeling the opposite. You know really feels like this is right. You know I feel like this is where you're trying to lead me you know is this. Is this what I should be feeling if not you know help me. In you know seems like something happens that kind of ger up a little bit. And you're like you know I know that's this is telling me something and I think that just listening to your gut feeling you know that to me. It's my gut feeling but that's God tugging at me telling me you know which way to go and I got listened to that and I think saga had knows that I think the older I get the more in tune with that. I get because of the things that I went through in the past and the You know I've learned that I can't be as much as I want to be. Everything for everyone you. I can't you know have to have to pick and choose and try and stay on the path that I wanna stay on so that I can continue to progress instead of just jumping after everything that was perfectly into what ask you. How do you find balance with being businesswoman with being a mother since you've been in your early twenties with Just having a family your family the and a family of thirteen like you have so much in your life like demands in your life. How do you find the balance? I think that is something that I wish that I had the answer to. How do I get through everyday? I constantly think about the balancing. I'm very very much Success driven and I want to build in and continue to grow the company and the more time that I put into it. You know the better that I can make it but you know there's you and I've talked about this before or that You know when you Burma to me. That IS MY PARTY RIGHT ALEC. Yes I absolutely love my career. I love my business. Love what I do But I am a mother and I know having you know a fourteen year old. This time goes by so quickly and right now I have a one year old five year old and you know I don't want to spend all my time building this wonderful business and then you know. I'm at their college graduation. Y'All got a great business but what's important to me right now is being a mom so I do struggle with the balance because you know I'm not I don't WanNa just completely let go of my business. You know. Get into pass my divorce but you know since then getting remarried to your brother in law and You know he is now working with me. Don't say for me but with me. 'cause we support each other but You know I'm I'm GonNa keep it going and I really WanNa see it do well but at the same time. I have to remind myself that what's important. I guess maybe not remind myself. Sit back and think sometimes like okay. Where's my life at? Where do I want it to be and I do a lot of self analyzing probably too much but you know I look at things a lot and say you know I want to spend more time Visiting my family you know. I want the kids to see the grandparents more or think about stuff that is important. I try to prioritize and then it comes down to time management which I feel like is probably the most night and day of me and my husband. He kind of has no concept of time and he picks at me and says that constantly gotten this clock. Ticking but you know in order to do all things you know you have to have a schedule and you have to. Have you know? Set Time in some of that set. Time is okay. This is my mom time and you know what the blessing though this Corentin has really truly been a blessing for me and my family and I say that with a heavy heart because I know that so many are suffering and it's such a terrible time for so many but for me and for our family we haven't directly been affected by the virus and we're pretty blessed. It'd be kind of out here in the middle of the country away from everything but it has helped to reset us a little bit and we've really been so busy for years now with so many events and things for work and school and this time that I've had with my children you know during this Corentin like I'm so grateful for because you know I do get on that time thing like okay. You know moved to the next thing exiting but spend pretty awesome and getting to see you guys and spend time with y'all and nobody really has anywhere to be. It's just I don't know there's there's beauty in it now. I totally totally agree with that. So you were talking about success in that your success German. What when you look at the whole picture of your life. What is a successful life to you when you're reflecting back when you're old and gray and you're sitting on your rocker looking back at your life. Are you going to say this was this is what what do you hope you're successful? I flight and Dad's one of those questions that I often ask myself like. Do you know I do have expensive tastes and I do like want the finer things and You know I I. I wasn't poor growing up but I was certainly not spoiled by any means you know. We had hand-me-downs and I shared a room with all my sisters and funny story until I took over the living room for a short time. But.

"Move through that. I mean I didn't know you act in where you are able to move through that and you still have. You have figured out a way to have a good healthy boundary relationship with your acts in the in the boys do too and it's just like how did you come to peace with that. I guess when you felt like maybe it morally didn't align with what you wanted to do well. At the time I felt like I was kind of looking for an out not happy anyway and win. I felt like I had justification for that that you know people got. I look to for their approval. I felt like they would understand. You know took advantage of that moment and there was a lot of turmoil and and things you know when when you and I met things are a lot different with me and my ex. And then they were. When we separated you know people have amicable divorces but most the time emotions just run. I mean there's just a lot at stake looking back a lot of things that I wish hadn't done hash wish hadn't have said but you know it's such an emotional time and both of you are feeling and saying things out of out of being hurt and whether you whether you want it or not. It's still hard even didn't want to be in that relationship anymore. It was very difficult to to go through that and you know especially with having young children at the time of the boys were one and two in one and three And it was you know it was a lot of questions like what is it. GonNa do to them. How are they gonNA feel about me after all this but I think that the relationship that you see that you're talking about now? I wish it would have always been like that. But it wasn't and there was a lot of hard feelings and hard times but I think that you know time does heal a lot and I do feel like I'm quick to forgive if not for other people say but more for Mine. I don't like holding grudges because when when angry at somebody or you know when I have those feelings it does feel like it doesn't leave me and you know I've learned that I wanna be at peace so you know the sooner that I can forgive and move past and forget you know the quicker that you know. I can get rid of this feeling so you know I think with that. Do have any advice on on how how to go after all that I would probably say. Try really hard not to act out of emotions you know. Think about the things you're doing because I wish I would have done more of that but You know time does heal a lot and looking back. I'm very thankful for that relationship because you know where at in my life right now so much of it started from that you know I've got lane and Ashton my two sons that are Twelve and almost fourteen and you know wouldn't trade that for anything and you know the business that I'm in now I learned from being with him When we divorced so going back to all those raw emotions. At that time I had dropped out of school. I dropped out but I basically just Quit going to school because I was running a business and my thought was. Why am I going to school for business? When I'm already running a business and it just to me was not a good Use of my time or money when I could put that time and money into the business and plus I was in a class. I'll never forget this. That was not the deciding factor but I wanNA class and whatever they were teaching I had just went through that the previous week and what he was teaching a new wasn't correct and I went up to the professor after class. And I was like you know this. This is all right. I just wanted to court over this last week and he was like. Yeah these these textbooks are a couple of years back in You're you're right I do. This did change but you know your test is going to be based on the textbook and I'm thinking why am I paying money studying grim useful for information out of date like this doesn't make any sense and it wasn't that big of a deal for the thing that was it was over a non compete or something and It was just the thought that you know. I started thinking that college is a business just like what I'm doing. They are luring me. I started going through this whole process in my head of you know why am I paying another business to try and teach me things that are out of date and so anyway I had dropped out of school and you know when I was going through this when I decided to split up. There was a little bit of panic. Like you know what? Now what am I gonNA do? The business was clearly his. I mean he had the business before we got married. Even though I had basically ran at for I guess it would have been about two years. would have been less than that but in I wasn't have any stake in the company so that was his The month before we got married so that was his. You know pre marriage so he had the house he had the business in. What am I GONNA do? Now drop out of school and that time you know. I immediately went and got a job waiting tables because I had to have money coming in of some sort and I thought longer wait tables and figure something out you know what I WANNA do. WanNa go back to school. What what what is it that I wanna do and I started thinking that Are Really really really enjoy business and I enjoyed the the business that he was in was strictly auto glass so it was only windshields Car Glass and I had talked to him about branching out into other avenues. He also was strictly like direct marketing. Where we had salesmen that would Orca gas stations or Car Wash and sell like on the spot you know an. I had ideas of cultivating relationships and building up accounts. And all this other stuff and gotten thinking like I don't want to compete with him but you know I can do this industry that I've learned and I really loved and have a completely different spin on it. That doesn't compete with him at all so I started. I started My company which would have been July two thousand nine and it started out just with auto glass with intentions of building in growing. And that's one thing that I have always like. I never want to keep myself in a box. And even like my ex husband's glass company name was such and such autoglass and I thought will my company is not going to be glass because I wanna do all types of glass and at one point. It was thinking about like POW meadow glass and then I'm like why how is South Carolina's known as the POW medal state so it was kind of a good name but then I'm like I don't Wanna I trap myself into just here in South Carolina. I really WANNA think big so That the sterling glass came about because I can remember writing down a holistic names. And.

Will well actually started sterling glass in two thousand nine so alive nine. So we're sneaking up on an eleven years this July. I've been in the industry in the glass industry for about fifteen years so talk me about your process of how you landed upon this company like starting this company in what it takes to run a company like this okay so So right out of high school okay. So I mentioned I was home schooled and Berry sheltered and right out of high school was a lot of excitement of going to college and For May it was more about partying meeting people having a good time And I think you know. Obviously that's I don't know I guess what they call the preacher's daughters the wildest one but you know just being sheltered a little bit. You just wanted to let your hair down. Yeah let my hair down go experience things and I did not have a bad childhood by any means and I would not trade the way that I was raised for anything because I feel like all of that played into helping me the things that I want achieve and learn I feel like I'm very blessed for the childhood had but at that time it was like okay. You know enough of being sheltered like I won't experience everything on the world and That came along with some very quick boyfriends and I didn't date much or anything but anyway long story short was in college party in Ended up not doing really great in school and always been getting in school so it was just. I just didn't have a reason or a want to. I was really there for socializing I went to land our for semester and come back to Colombia Actually at that time I was a front end manager of winn-dixie Grocery store which had become front and manager when I was seventeen years old while in high school and playing sports I was working like forty hours so I started this doing a lot. You know in the time that you're given from a pretty young age And I I've always really thrive to do my best and you know the apartment me envy's people like you that you say you can lay on the couch and be in pajamas all day. And you know part of me envy's that because I can't really enjoy that and sometimes you know if a rainy day and I can I can get into it every once in a while but sometimes I wish I could put the brakes on it and But then I think you know this is who I am. This is what I enjoy but Getting back to muster up getting side tracked Move back to Colombia. Was working at the grocery store picked up a second job at a tanning salon. 'cause I thought that sounded like a fun job And while I was there I met a guy that completely was smitten with immediately and we ended up moving so we met moved in together. Then all of a sudden pray months later on pregnant alley end nineteen ago nineteen years old. This was in two thousand five Move to Charleston with him moved away from my hometown of Marysville about two hours away And I actually stayed in school because accurate. Member vary heavyweight on me of that. This was the right thing to do like I'm already pregnant out of wedlock. I'm the guy either. I'm not married to saw already. Felt like I was a disappointment in the family. You know I don't think it wasn't that my parents were that judgmental. I think it was more myself looking back that I felt like I was letting people down So I tried you know stayed in school but I really didn't have a clear. Hey Jer what I wanted to do. Sarcoma about bounced around with majors at. I did really miss being home but Try to get back to the story in the question. And but how I got out fast like this is like talked about culture shock. Go from being home schooled with pretty much just being around your family to being in college for just a minute. And now's said you've moved away your with in a serious Pregnant with a baby on the way I mean that is like a dramatic change for anyone to comprehend. Yeah and I was very much at the time. Felt like I was I guess when you're that age you feel mature you feel grown but looking back. It's like I've got sisters that are that age and you know you just you just. There's just so much can't no you know when you're that among but it back to your question at hand The Guy that I'm married in the glass business and from day one of meeting him. I was just intrigued by business and really had decided that. That's what I WANNA do like. I enjoyed everything about it. I liked you know negotiating. I liked Selling just the I think the the building of the business and the I don't know just an of accomplishment that that's yours and you know the work that you put into it you get to reward from it you know if you have a regular paying job for me. I don't think that you go into work for somebody else at a salary. Or whatever wouldn't wouldn't fulfil what I need because you know if I fail right now I'm definitely GonNa GonNa feel it in a house going. It sounds like there's been a lot of ups announced but anyway I enjoyed business Got into the business with him. We ended up getting married the following January And I really learned a lot because even though it was his business he didn't he had A bookkeeper accountant that was running the business. Which when when when I started asking questions and getting into trying to figure things out it became pretty apparent that he didn't know a lot about the business and the more we learn the more questions came up but it turned out that his opponent was actually stealing a lot of money from him and not only was he running the business but he was he was doing a lot of things that were not Not In line with how. We would've wanted things so anyway. We was twenty years old at the time when we took the business from this guy that was running it and I think that my background so I'm the oldest daughter of thirteen children have two older brothers. The rest of your younger than me. So I've always been very responsible of been motherly I was home schooled and we lived on a farm so two things two major things that I take away from this and how it helped me was being home schooled. I learned how to self teach because my mom Scott you know babies toddlers And all different grade levels and it was Kinda like. Here's your lesson for the day. Go do it and so I didn't have a teacher that would stand there and teach a class on the same thing. This really helped me because I really grasped that I can learn anything I can figure it out. You know right and then from being working on the farm and having that many siblings we had a lot of chores. I had to wake up early in the mornings at five. Am Milk House before school carrier in feed. We had Gardez There was a lot of work to be done. Always House chores kitchen chores cooking started cooking at a age. And it really taught me that you know if you want something you work for it and that was just how. I was raised and what I knew so when we took this business kind of jumping all over but I love how it's playing out in my head when we this business on this guy and I remember we brought it in our living room and I've got a young lane who's thirteen now almost fourteen and a few weeks. He was a couple months old guy. Newborn Baby I was in school. We took the business over and it was kind like here. It is now what you know and I just remember like not really even thinking about it other than it was almost like something. Click like. Okay this is you gotta do this like figure out or run a business and we turned our dining room at a time into an office and I can't remember sitting there all night just watching Tutorials and youtube videos and Harley. Remember if it was you I guess you to was out then I remember watching like all the quickbooks tutorials and then researching like. When do you pay sales tax? Windy all the different things and then I would ask a lot of questions. I joined a business leads group and it was a lot of business owners in there and to me. I just saw a wealth of knowledge and I'm never been afraid to ask questions if I don't know something or if I feel like even if I feel like I know something if I feel like someone knows it better you know I really really really Enjoy learning from from people that have the experience and that sort of thing so Took over his business. Learn how to do all kinds of things got in trouble because of not knowing things that I should have known or should have researched that I feel like if I had gone to business school and you know had the the schooling back around the that I would have been maybe more equipped to make better decisions. But you know that kind of was my cost of learning was my school you know hands on and make mistakes and figure it out and figure out how to get past it but so that was. Kinda how I got into the business now. Our marriage didn't last very long. We did have two sons semi I was born And then Ashton came sixteen months later and trying to even think back to all of that Also a tough time in my life because I think that I realized that I wasn't happy. Didn't want to be in the situation. That was part of me. Felt trapped a little bit. Like you know of already to make this right. I've already messed up. I've already know not done the Christian Way and you know it not became apparent and I'm not going to go into all the details but some things happened. That made it a lot. Easier for me to be okay with it and leaving with with leaving. Was that a hard. Was that how did you? How did you navigate those feelings of that because I know a lot of women get not position where they fell in love? Got Pregnant early. And then all of a sudden. It's just not what you thought in. You have all this moral dilemma. Going on like how like. I feel like you. You were able to.

I got dressed and had heels on and look I was going into the office and I'm at home and Linden's where are you going. I just I needed to dress up for a second. You know to make myself feel prepared. I think working out for me is more of just keeps me in check keeps. My mental health keeps my physical health. It's important for me in. It's it's not easy. It's not like I you know the clock goes off and I don't jump out of bed. Happy to run to the gym. I struggle with it and it's something that you know. I have to decide the night before. If I'M GONNA do it set my clothes out you know and I actually think about the reasons why I'm GonNa do it so that when I wake up in the morning. My reasons are stronger than my excuses. And how big the biggest thing that I think of when I wake up and it's like you know I could just snooze and go to sleep and you know do this tomorrow whatever but I always think I will not go work out and feel bad about it but if I don't go I'm going to feel bad the rest of the day like whatever eventually do get up and be like. Oh man I should have went so it's important for May and It's been really tough during the scorn team because of just the completely different structure or lack of structure. I should say but You know I've been getting maroons in here. And there and taking the baby for a jog and just doing the things that I can so I I do enjoy that. So you mentioned living with type one diabetes. When did you find out that you had it? And how how have you navigated that because you already have on your plate in? That's a lot like you have to really think about it all the time. So how have you navigated that? And what have been your different emotions feelings and vases and just Your outlook on it. Well I was diagnosed when I was seventeen. And Seventeen is a very I would say trying time for anybody anyway But for me it was a a different point of my life because I was home schooled and I had a law siblings and grew up. Berry sheltered. I would say and the year that I found out was actually my first year ever in public school and it was really tough year. It was exciting and fun and I wanted to go to public school. It was something that I had asked. My parents for Really really wanted to play sports and get into you. Know sports that that was interested then And I remember being diagnosed in at the time and being that age you know I think I I just thought this is just. This isn't fair like I've twelve siblings. I'm the only one that gets diagnosed with this And I think I would. I would go through different feeling that I had been sick for months and months. Not Knowing what was wrong. You know had a lot of different symptoms but it never added up in. Once I found out there was a sense of relief that at least I know what's wrong and weakened fix it but I do remember being so overwhelmed by the thought of the rest of my life and you know you get so wrapped up in like I can't me. I see like their certain points in your life where it's like a changing point a defining moment in your life you know few get engaged the day you get married that day you find out you're pregnant the day that you find out you had or the day you have a miscarriage days you know that from that point forward things are not the same and the thought of you know. I have to live with this every day for the rest of my life at the age of seventeen is so overwhelming that there was times that I just Kinda gave up and I think that the seriousness of it and the thought of death are not making. It really didn't click. It was just. I'm not doing this. You know and My parents were there for me and I can remember them taking me to this one doctor who actually happen to be a diabetic and she said she explained it to me in a way that. I feel like I've looked at a lot of things in my life. And she said you know you do have to do this for the rest of your life. But what if you never your teeth before a Hin? Suddenly somebody came to you with toothpaste and toothbrush. Was like you're going to have to clean those things in your mouth twice a day for the rest of your life. Like how overwhelming would that be if it wasn't part of your routine and she said this is going to become part of you part of your routine just like everything else and once? I really Kinda grasp that it was like you know what it's not. It is very serious. It is life threatening but I can control this. You know I can manage this and handle this and I stopped getting so well MD with the rest of my life and just tried to think about you know today. I'm going to check my blood sugar and Take my shots and do all the things that I need to do today and I'm not going to think about the rest of my life because you know I gotta take a shower every day the rest of my life or most days all the all the stuff that you do. I mean it is overwhelming and it is something else I do that. A lot of people don't but I do feel like in a way it has you shaped me to be who I am but it's also you know I feel like I'm very healthy because I'm diabetic. Which is you know. It's kind of weird to say that But I think if I wasn't I wouldn't pay such close attention to you know to to all aspects of my health so.

We Australia kid all the time so we have to notify ourselves of the good things that each person does and then it goes back to another thing. I think but I think we owe it to each other to be honest and communicate like if I'm actually upset with you if you're upset with me you can't do this like beating around the Bush O. Rien ways like you need a straight up. Say I'm mad at you. Hit Me Straight ahead and we can figure it out. I'm not trying to old rag out early to create some weird. Let's talk about it if you got to get heated about it for a second that goes back to just not taking chip personal but deal with it confronted and don't be don't be an asshole and come around sideways and be mad at your partner when they can't read your mind.

"As the way I feel about you. What have you learned through this whole with this current situation? I'M GONNA interview the interviewer. I feel thankful and grateful that you and I like Carpe Diem. Seize the day and we went to Texas and hung out at the farm for month with my sister. Catherine brother-in-law Willy and East genevieve. Because in my parents they would social distance coming but they were still involved with their life and stuff and doing things like a small level so they just stayed at their house but it was really cool to hit the pause button be in nature. We're very blessed to have that chance to go be a nature and like have a month just to be with them. Which one will we ever do that again? That in like to hike every day and to be outside every day and to have like piece of dislike quietness. I don't know I have never really lived on a farm before lived lived and I know you grew up on a farm but we're farmers but we grew up on. That's right yeah but I just I appreciate that and I tried to say president every day that this was a moment in time that we probably will never ever experience again and like you said. We had permission to to press pause. Because there's nothing to do. Actually there was a whole lot of fear happening. There still is a lot of fear but there is a lot of fear happening in beginning and I don't know that felt really good to me. Just be a nature via family. Absolutely incredible sunny got to be with genevieve which is really cool cousin. I don't know the whole world's weirder and I think like you're saying sort of just It's like opening my mind to the fact that nothing is certain we put in place all of these systems and all of this stuff all these rules and things that we have to happen to make the world run and then we've seen everything to stop on a dime so realize that nothing is certain and what is certain to me. Is The people that you love. And I don't know trying to make an impact around people that you love and that you care about and help where you can and then everything else. I pretty much like so. Many people's careers have just stopped. You know because they can't like somebody careers involving around people serving people servicing people. I would think about the people right now that you're in the medical field and the nurses and everybody out there and like the people like really you know there's a there's there's two sides of it you know you're either super involve saving the world or pause and you know. I think it's important for people to take time. That are on pause to help and appreciate the people that aren't because it really is zero or sixty point And and you Kinda I I find myself feeling guilty. Sometimes that like. I'm not on the sixty side but there's nothing to do if you are not in those occupations like you really need to get out of the way. I think doing your part in staying home in in in following the rules is your contribution to the other side you know and not being reckless and not being and helping where you can small businesses. Where you can. I mean all those things are your contribution to you know. I mean just because we can't work as far as touring doesn't mean that we can't do other things to Kinda staying at home you know. Essentially as is what you're supposed to do that helps the people that are working so I mean you know it's a it's a crazy time and it's it's something that I hope. People stay positive in their situations. I hope people stay motivated and also you know take a deep breath and find things that they love or maybe there's something they wanted to do. They never had time to do like try. You'll give it a go being only upset and sad like try to use this as a chance. Yeah you don't enjoy your family. You know you know some people enjoy your family like I'm away from my family a lot. You guys obviously being on the road and it's it's been a really special time for me actually being home for the first year of our daughter's life in like being able to Be with her and see her grow and see her do her thing because you know once all this goes away everything turns back on. And we're GONNA get you know so you know looking at the at the positive sides of things you know that you know the time that you'll never get back and that's kind of what I'm thinking with this whole. I'm trying to be that way. What do you do to stay present? What are your tricks to stay present? How do you stay in the moment like with sunny? Like say like say you wanted to just like notice a moment. Be In the moment. Be Actually right here at this second in this podcast talking to me like what do you do to make sure that you're not drifting away thinking about something else? Jimmy distracted by something else. Like what does a tip that you do? A tip tip. I think just like subconsciously knowing like there's no guilt of doing this you know. I'm not missing out on anything else or missing. You know what I mean. You're not married that you're not Y- you feel like maybe you had something you're supposed to do because you need to work and like we'll awesome just like sometimes there's just nothing else to do. You know everything seems to be like a slow pace kind of different feel than it has in the past. But I don't know I just like saying this is like makes you realise what's important You know and it's like well this is important. This is what I'm GonNa do and you know whatever fuck off like did that make says but I feel like you and I have grown up together because we met when you were twenty one and I was twenty four and we went from like kids to saying we're like Mitch Yard adults but like we have really evolved together a lot. I feel like even like with our thinking like when we first were young. Both of us. I was a musician in the beginning We both just were like chasing dreams. Working hard hustling all the time going out constantly trying to meet people doing everything we could. And it's like the older. We've gotten the more we realized how what say. Yes to and what say no to you. Do you feel that way? Yeah absolutely I mean. I think what's the saying you know if it's not a hill yet no I love that. Yeah you know. I think that applies to a lot of thinks that applies to life in general. But let's get back to the sex talk. How much thanks to you think? Oh I was just. I was just kidding. You're out I don't know another loaded question. There's this loaded questions. I love this thing as connecting with the one.
