What would you like to share about oats well other than than the the typical health benefits votes. There's actually two compounds in oats that i don't think very many people know about and so wanted to talk about those today but then also talk about the various types of oats.

But we're coming to find out that Oats contain more than twenty unique polyphenol compounds which are like phytochemicals Called evanston reminds have strong antioxidant anti inflammatory and anti itching properties which is why people can use. Oats says a bath like if you get poison oak or poison ivy. Get that itchiness on your skin. The compounds and oats are known to reduce that.

How the Military Is Being Indoctrinated Into Cultural Marxism via Critical Race Theory
"Mentioned. Also that defense secretary. Lloyd austin said that the pentagon's military training program incorporated critical race theory and the un-american sixteen nineteen project. how is it possible that these Utterly false ideologies. They're not merely american. They're fundamentally false that they would make their way into pentagon training this. I think this is where you know. Most americans are waking up. We're horrified and we think this has to end. We cannot live in a nation that is being protected by people indoctrinated with marxism with cultural marxism. How in the world is it possible. That things could get that far in the military. It's one thing if it happens at harvard and yale because they've always been drinking zeitgeist kool aid but in the military we. I would think that this couldn't happen. How has it gotten this far. The one answer this as something that most people don't realize is that very same instructors who are teaching on college campuses and saint. Harvard yale are teaching service branch academies there are teaching at the naval academy. This happened to the bill clinton previously. You had to be actually within the military to teach at a service branch academy under clinton you had the same civilian professors coming in. And these are the guys who are absolutely pushing radical agendas and. They are teaching the next officer class i. This is a huge huge problem. Now like million themselves are products for example of columbia their products of the same ivy league system. That is bad enough. Up at the same system has infested for example the naval academy One of the more recent issues. You have a tendency commander discussing america's problem with systemic racism and confessing his own bias. These kinds of things have become routine and this is the kind of marxist indoctrination on that our troops rejected even when they were prisoners of vietnam. There were people. Had bamboo shoots which another fingernails harrods the monks indoctrination now. They do voluntarily.

"Those of you who have it these some, like 300,000 of you. It's I start on page 3 58 Excuse me, 2 58. Higher education presents its own set of difficulties and challenges. It is the breeding ground of American Marxism were tenured Marxists and radical professors rule the roost. Be the most subversive colleges and universities should be subjected to the kind of BDs movement its students and graduates often unleashed against others. I can't go over territory we've already discussed BDs. I've discussed at some length. There are opportunities for real pushback number one. In the first place. Any parent who is involved in financially supporting a child's tuition to attend Ecology University must at least attempt to exercise some control over the child's decision. About which school he or she will attend. Here. We have real school choice, and the decision is whether the choice will be a wise one. That's the parent must become intimately familiar with the school's reputation for academic freedom, free speech, traditional education and the like, or whether it is a hotbed of Marxist radicalism and intolerance. Moreover, even if you are not assisting financially with tuition, a parent should still use his or her influence to help direct and guide their child's decision. In addition, if your child may have been accepted into an Ivy League school, you should not be hypnotized by its name and pass reputation. For example, I'm on critical race theories, most ardent founders where Harvard and Stanford law professors Now, as discussed at length earlier in an earlier

This North Korean defector was scolded by a university staff member for admitting she enjoyed classic classic literature such as Jane Austen. The woman from North Korea said. I love those books. I thought it was a good thing. Then the professor center. Did you know those writers had a colonial mindset? They were Racists and bigots center subconsciously brainwashing you. It only got worse from there, as she realized that every one of her classes at the Ivy League school was infected with what she saw as anti American propaganda reminiscent of the sort she'd grown up with. This story is stunning. She's a North Korean defector from a sworn nuclear powered enemy, the United States, one of the worst human beings on planet Earth. Kim Jong UN Tubs. What is the worst guys ever? Ever. Yet she comes over here, where people starved to death by the tens of thousands. If not hundreds of thousands don't even know the nobody's bury the dead and mass graves. And she says, Yeah. You know, the North Korean school system wasn't as bad as you guys here, folks. This is stunning. As I said in the beginning when we opened up the show, and I meant it. Isn't it frightening? That attacks being promoted by foreign enemies of the United States to destroy the United States from within. Are being absorbed and used by left this within the country to do exactly that. Anti American propaganda critical race theory.
Critical Race Theory or Marxism?
"Going to give you a little history lesson here a little little bit of information that you have not heard. And it is an american marxism. I should know better and keep my mouth shut. Because it'll be repeated and repeated and repeated and then suddenly you'll say well marks repeating what somebody else that i am not this critical race theory. I'm something called critical. Theory and it's part of a marxist movement of the nineteen sixties in this country and the founding father of this critical theory movement was herbert marcus. He's a man that was a professor mini ivy league schools in this country. He was born in germany he say hey galleon marxist ideologue he worked with the franklin school of political theorist was basically a communist beehive and as a young man as a young man in germany he saw the rise of the communist party and he saw the rise of the third reich and he was certain the communist party would win. He was certain that people will be drawn to the communist party. Because of the communist party's ideology he was a true marxist. But that's not what happened for a number reasons. I don't need to get in here. We'll do it another day and he needed an explanation. Why isn't this happening. So we escaped to the united states where he spreads his former what i call american marxist and he writes extensively and one thing you don't know is that he was the brainchild behind the new left movement. The right so the nineteen sixties students for democratic action. The violence that occurred the attempt to blow up the capitol building and other buildings pentagon. He was the idiological mastermind behind that movement. He's the ideological mastermind behind critical race. Theory
Remembering the Tiananmen Square Crackdown
"Which came 32 years ago today, when hundreds possibly thousands, died when China's Communist Party had used the People's Liberation Army to put a bloody end to the student led pro democracy protests. 1989. The date is always a flashpoint and nowhere is this more sensitive than the restive region of Hong Kong. Already a prominent pro democracy activist, Xiao Hong Kong, has been arrested by police there for promoting unauthorized assembly. The authorities say this year's event has been banned due to covid social distancing restrictions. Hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong residents would normally packed Victoria Park in a late night vigil. The BBC's Danny Vincent has this report from Hong Kong. For more than three decades. Ivy lie has marked every anniversary of the June 4th crackdown. She keeps copies of newspaper articles from that day under her bed, she does not forget. Hong Kong is the only place on Chinese soil that officially commemorates those that died in 1989. When the Army opened fire on pro democracy protesters. It's murder. It's a bloody massacre of Tiananmen Square. This year, the police have banned an annual visual marking the day they threatened to imprison anyone who defies covid 19 restrictions. Ivy becomes emotional at the thought of not being able to attend. Activists believe the pandemic is being used as an excuse to silence dissent.

Establishing the Discipline of Conversation Design - Rob Hayes Head of Product at Voiceflow Talks Conversation Experience Design - Voicebot Podcast Ep 209 - burst 09
"Let's talk about design so conversation design. You've probably learned a lot about conversations design of your fast job at ada and the now a voice flow when you think about the practices that people are employing today. What what do you think's the most interesting in terms of how this is evolving. The one of the more interesting things you're starting to see is as as these teams are as the teams are getting established within organizations You know. I think maybe the first conversation designers really get introduced into Organization focused on a specific and then another one for another channel. And now you have. Now you have a discipline established once you have to conversations niners working onto channels. You have a discipline established and so starting to see more of that. The conversation design practice being established. And then you know. They're they're starting to think about okay. We're not building. we're not building an ivy. Our experience and a mobile a mobile assisted interface Separately these are these are two touch points with with the same brands conversational experience. And so how do we. How do we think about consistency across channels ends and then ultimately how do we hand off between channels to the to the appropriate channel. That's best suited to to deliver on this. And so i think one of the one of the more interesting patterns. They're starting to see is just you know what is what is the interplay across conversational channels within a single organization whether that be behind the scenes just in terms of how that the teams approaching it designing for creating consistency of language content personality flows within the experiences to ultimately having interplay between these channels in the future. Yes are you seeing more of that cross channel collaboration. The it's it's happening on the behind the scenes part of a lot. Or there's there's attempts to really get that structure in place to be able to do that. That's how to. How do we share a source of truth on on our on our contents. What is our what is our content management system that we all pull from what is the what is the intense the list of intense that we support and which slice of that does each channel handle and wears their overlaps. Even between you ex design and conversation zion. You know where to these experiences. Start to overlap. an water the assets that were building around for those so you start to see a lot more of on the back office side or behind the scenes thinking about how do we work across channels To save effort redis redundancy but also ultimately to create a you know a a more cohesive cohesive experience for someone who's interacting with our with our company regardless of what conversational touch point. So it sounds like there's more coordination may be than in past when there was basically zero coordination across the different channels different different executives in charge different budgets all these other types of things different objectives So that's yet it's an interesting but are they actually sharing resources they are. They really collaborating beyond sort of the standards and policy level Are they actually creating experiences together. Are they sharing those resources of conversation designers across these different use cases. It has as much as there are enabled to do. I think this is. This is one of the the pattern the patterns that you'd see from from certainly from people with a connie copywriting background or a a u x background. Where this is like. It's a familiar thing because that's what you would do in those disciplines is year. You have design systems. And you've got your your content style guides and these resources that are built to be shared regardless of what channel output to create that consistency. So there's a lot of effort to being done to to replicate those those items for conversational experiences. You know what is our conversation was conversational design system and that includes everything from how we how we authenticate a user through a conversational platform to how we say goodbye. And it's it goes from everything from the the actual user flows the the functional interactions that users having to the contents of what's being said
Bitcoin Is Much More Than a Speculative Asset
"There has been a huge amount of talk of es g. as it relates to bitcoin this week specifically obviously in the case of tesla reversing policy and no longer accepting bitcoin payments for cars because of environmental concerns.

Entrepreneur Success Be Undaunted Kara Goldin - Know When to Move On
"I'm going to move ahead though here too on chapter five Which is entitled. Know when to move on and i want to give you a quote from page thirty three. You said money is never been a big motivator for me and still isn't what's the point of making money doing something you don't love. I stuck with it. But i knew i was not going to stay at cnn for long. I think this is. This is another one of those little -portant subtle things that gold and says that i think is really really important for people to wrap their minds around help them understand this that little nugget of goodness. Yeah well. I think that the most important thing is you. Go out and try things right and i was. I mean. it's interesting to think that at the time. Cnn was what would be termed today. A late stage starter. right ted. Turner was still running around the offices. I mean it was. It was just crazy. It was not you know the size that it was today and he was splitting his time between atlanta new york city. But what i realized was that i was i was coming in there. Initially because i thought the ted was this god-like figure and that it was an interesting brand and it was really really exciting. But i understood it pretty quickly that it was not what i wanted to do. I didn't wanna do the type of sales and business development that i was ending up working on and but that didn't mean while i was there that i wasn't going to do a great job and i think that that's something that i you know really really when eventually a when you look back on things and you connect the dots. I think that putting all that you've got into an organization and knowing that you have got a time line versus actually burning out on the job right and knowing that that's something that is That really you can take with you at all times that you knew it wasn't going to be the place. I not only learned a lot about sales and some of the other things that i was taught there but i also learned about culture. The culture at time for example was very. You know blood an ivy league versus what i was seeing from ted turner who you know very much the the organization was you know very much to him and which i think is so typical inside of companies to where you know his swearing his his suit and his cowboy boots. I had even growing up in arizona. Had never seen such thing. But things. But i think that it's just it really speaks to no experience along. The way is a waste of time right. That's another thing that i say to people. Sometimes people would say to me always should never have stayed at that job for so long instead of actually thinking about what you've done wrong figure out what the lessons you learned from matt and also understand. Maybe what you'll take with you. I mean we ended up doing a super bowl ad few years ago. That was super last minute. And i think that a lot of the things that i learned from being at cnn helped me to negotiate that deal. Right i didn't know it when i was sitting there that we would have. I would eventually be running a company and doing a super bowl ad. But i knew enough about trafficking and add through and waiting until the last minute and people thinking you know that it's going to be one price but it will discount really fast the closer and closer you get to the super bowl so all of these tactics team was saying. How do you know this stuff. I mean and i said you know. It's all part of my journey somewhere along the way so there's lots of lessons in that chapter as well. you know. this is this just in because this isn't in the book but you just triggered a thought in in me that you just said you know i think so often you know when we're on our journeys we don't we don't think about that where we're at is going to contribute to something in our future and the truth of the matter is if we could if we could appreciate where we are at even if you're not real happy with where you're at that you could see it as being something that is going to contribute to something even greater. Yeah right i mean it could make the it could make it. I mean because that's what you that's what you just did absolutely jobs always said. It's like the dots eventually connect right right but when you're in and you go through challenging time you don't y- i'll give you another example. That's not in the book when the pandemic hit the us which you know. I about as last march and It was you know it was a really challenging time. You were an essential product so

After not playing this past season at Cornell, due to the Ivy League, not having a season, he thought it was time to return to what he called home. Here is his brother on how it came about. Once you started, the season came and their season was canceled and just based off this season and performance he had last year averaging close to 17 a game. 67 rebounds really improved and This summer. I just realized that you got a lot better and he could. He could help us. I thought even this year, but he was ready to the point of this level. And me and my dad kind of talked about here and they're just saying what he could do for us, and I think middle of this year he kind of had his mind up that he was going to come here and it was just Excitement, and I think he just can't wait to get here and get playing. But when people talked, you know about you around your dad's program. No one said like he was the coach's kid. Everyone said you were just another guy and that you're coaching your dad made you work like everyone else. How do you think that helped you develop under him? And how do you think that's gonna help your brother? I think it helped a lot right from the start. I told him this streaming like everyone else. I'd yell at me when I make a mistake, And obviously he's often coach so I know he's going to do just that. I don't have to tell him anything, and he knows what more Evades me how to motivate me, and he knows I'm gonna work as hard as I can. No matter what. So Jimmy's the same way he works just as hard. He's got that great mindset. He's tough, and he's gonna be ready to work from

"ivy" Discussed on The IVY Podcast
"So one hundred degrees in Washington DC, really, humid, nothing could stop him. And he wanted to knock on every door whether or not it was a Republican, and they weren't even show up in the democratic primary and I kept saying sorry. This is a complete waste of time. Because they're not even going to be able to vote for your son against Chris van, Holland and the primary and even say, nothing's a waste of time. We get to talk to people. There's the Mary Oliver, quote, it was my favorite poet that you should hang out with people who buy their head and astonishment and say, look and Sargent Shriver had this that everything was the most fascinating experience of his life. Every. The meal was the most Alicia, but it wasn't set in a fake way. Like, he sincerely meant like every second was a blessing to be alive in the second person would surprise you. So he's got a bit of a national profile now because he ran for the democratic chairmanship recently seems Buddha judge. He's the mayor south bend. Indiana, smart guy, summa cum laude from Harvard Rhode scholar MacKenzie for a couple years, and I like him because he's the uncharismatic airs Matic, and he'll even say to you. I'm an introvert. I'm not someone who's going to beat my chest. He doesn't credit claim, but he just lets the data doing talking. So he's completely obsessed with trying to figure out how ambulance response times can be three point three seconds faster because as mayor south bend. He wants to make sure more lives are saved. And so he's trying to figure out the puzzle of how to ambulance get two houses faster from where they're starting and I think data's going to be. Really sexy and solving problems and someone like Buddha. Judge just blows me away with the way that he thinks about data to solve public policy problems. And I guess as you'll see them you'll see in probably on a short list for vice presidential nominee in two years. And if I get it, right? You'll think I'm a genius. And if I get it wrong, you'll forget, so I'm just gonna say that. Yes. With their biggest. Of those two individuals. Well, so with Buddha. He's not someone who's going to pack a stadium like Beto Rourke and get everybody fired up. That's not his style. But actually, let's ask ourselves. The question. Would you rather have a campaigner or governor someone who actually can make these decisions? And I think there's a mismatch between how we select people for the job. I think if we're picking the next president, we should just have a forecasting competition. Let's have people two years before predict where the euro's going to be whether or not air to one's going to be in power. What's going to happen in the Russian federation? What's going to happen in China? That's what leadership really is a seeing the future. And the way that we have these debates are silly. It's ridiculous. Give them a hypothetical situation to solve give them a difficult decision. Have them forecast things. That's how we should pick presidents. Senators governors with Sargent Shriver one of the issues with him is that he was completely guile. No, Machiavelli and spirit to him at all which oftentimes means the doggy dog world politics that he's gonna get taken advantage of which actually did happen to them. Even maybe in his own family with the Kennedy side of his family. And so he didn't get to where I think he deserve to be.

"And I was surprised because I thought the answer was going to be Nelson Mandela number one Pope John Paul the second number two. But the answer was Bill Clinton. And they were to expedite actions. One explanation. We won't talk about today. We'll do that next time, which is that Bill Clinton knew almost everything about something. And that if you put him in a table with Nobel prize winning economists, you think he was a Nobel prize winning economists. You put him a table of art historians. You think he's an art historian when he was at Oxford. He read three books every single day. He just has a really deep knowledge that's also broad in its scope. But the central reason that they cited is that when you speak with Bill Clinton, you feel like you're the only person in the world that exists one time my students, and I had lunch with him. And with one student. He looked through his glass in still made eye contact with the student who was speaking. But my favorite example, which is been related by Gillian Anderson of the X files was that on the rope line. Bill Clinton did something that was absolutely magical. He's got these really intense is that look right through your soul shaking your hand on don't be too nervous on the rope line. And he looks at you like you're the only person in the world that exists in this here starting to to stick up. But then when Bill Clinton moves on to shake the next person's hand, he's a little heartbroken because Bill Clinton's just moved on. You're the only person in the world that exists. You're the only person in the world that exists. I didn't forget about you the look back or the second candy after you. Remember something everybody gets one candy, you you're so special. You get a second candy. So two major definitions here. How can we train ourselves to get outside of ourselves overcome those cognitive deficits, and how can we start to pay attention to the really small things whether or not observing when the lips aren't facing somebody when they're speaking. Or how we look at people and how we hear what they're actually saying I'm gonna stop my prepared remarks here open it up to your questions. I want to leave you with wishes of good luck.

We're the architecture is getting you inside your own brain. I was one of the first couple hundred people on Facebook. And it was just the four classes we were taking you clicked on a hyperlink. And you saw the fourteen people you wanted to stock. It was just the Facebook that we had is undergraduates put online, that's all it was. And now it's completely dominating the way that we think about the world that we could have the exact same eight hundred Facebook friends, but we see a completely different world in front of us because how does Facebook make it's money. They get us to stay on the site for a longer period of time. How do we get on the site for a longer period of time? Will we like what we see three humble suggestions to be able to do this number one to increase the amount of surprise encounters that you have one of my favorite scholars says that there should be a serendipity button for Facebook that you start to purposely like things that you really dislike? This is why I'm living in Moscow, and we'll tell the Russians. But I knew they were not gonna like what I was gonna say when I first went over there. And I also knew that I was uncomfortable in having the type of exchanges I had to have. Now, I'm really comfortable in Moscow a little too comfortable when Sergei and Alexei follow me around everywhere. I go my to trailing KGB officers that watch me everywhere. I like the place. So now, it's time to move. So what can you do to increase these encounters? I read until my eyes bleed. I have an academic easy button at Georgetown, where I can essentially Amazon prime the library version any book to my desk within thirty six hours. It will be on my desk, whether or not Sunday or Saturday, some librarian will come and put it there for me. And I always avoid that we have the ugliest library in the country. I will go to that library, even though I'm tremendously lazy because the ten best books. I read last year were all books that I discovered in route to the book that I was actually seeking out number two flaw. Some rather than awesome. We tend to have a natural instinct to celebrate our triumphs to Baskin luxuriate and what we do. Well, but you should flip the script on this in think about where you're falling short. Even in trivial things like what you ordered at the restaurant is the reason why you didn't. Order what you should've ordered. Because the waitress was able to persuade you to order the item that gave the restaurant the highest profit margin was that because you were exhausted and you needed some comfort food was that the menu architecture that nudged you into ordering a certain you have to be able to analyze this and to confront where you're falling short. You're in the training room, and you can ask any trainer of politicians. Oftentimes, the first question is how did you think that went what did you like the first question you should lead? With is what went wrong, and what can I do better? Number three. What's the signature pose of the era? It's the selfie the signature anthem of the air. Lady Gaga, I live for the applause in one of his later books Kissinger. He doesn't understand how digital natives are ever going to be leaders because they're constantly thinking about the thumb up and the approbation the approval, and so it's not just about moving with the street. It's about moving the street is leaders. My favorite book is John F Kennedy's profiles encourage although those really written by Ted Sorensen, and it's a series of sets of politicians who did something that was politically unpopular, but was the right decision for the country. But if you're constantly reared in seeking that public approval seeking an applause, are you going to be able to have the chutzpah to do something that is politically difficult. But also, it's totally rewiring our brain in terms of our inward focus to to paraphrase, David foster Wallace. You've never had an experience in your life..

So it pays not to think. If you don't know where your next Meal's going to come from. So we go on autopilot naturally. And this is my drop the clicker slide because typically when I do the full test the first question just fifteen minutes before is a sentence where I asked you to count the letter Fs. And they're six letter Fs in the sentence. But the average person in this room will only count three they'll miss the letter f word of because they go on this cognitive pilot, and we talk about cognitive autopilot.

"Of your insights genius. If you get four out of five doing this exercise, probably twenty to twenty five thousand people have done this three people have gotten all five out of five one was a prime minister when he or she got all five out of five another one became the president of their country. Just four months after the exercise. The other person is twenty four years old. And I what's apper every single day. Just so that I can stay on the top of remind. So that when she becomes president or prime minister, I have a job. If you get four out of five you're in the top five percent of the top one percent. My guess would be only one or two of you would get four out of five in this room. The average person this room would locate two out of these five variables that we're going to discuss if you don't get any God bless, you know, about a quarter of people do not locate, and it's also a matter of articulation, so we're going to look at some observations skills here. But then I also wanna talk about some basic communication concepts that we don't necessarily articulate on a daily basis. How many of you want to watch the video again? So this is challenge. Number one. You're all locked in. You're not necessarily multitasking on your phones. And yet, you still don't see the full story that you would like to see and if we were working together for a full semester, whether or not it was at Reneta or Georgetown or another training facility. I would just play videos like this, and we will continue to work on your observations. Muscle that you would be able to recreate and repeat and summarize exchanges like this. Okay. What's the easiest variable that you came across. That allowed Benson to get lucky. The audience reaction is definitely not the easiest one. I put that number three at least, according to audiences that I've had that's typically the third variable. And there are lots of people in this room that didn't think of the audience reaction as contributing to Benson's victory. Now, why is this the case and one of the more important concepts? And there's a book that I recommend to you by the same title that you need to think of is pre suasion play on pursuasion fan of the book or not a fan of the book brilliant book. One of the reasons that I love living in Moscow and in Beirut is that I have skeptical audiences in front of me. And so I have to deal with what they're preconception is before I speak and come up with certain techniques to be able to overcome that skepticism on one hand, I need to be confident tonight another hand, I can't be here. Again, that's the thin dividing line that oftentimes rests with the benefit of the doubt that you would give me. So when you communicate you have to understand that oftentimes your weaknesses, the flip side of your strength. So Benson incredibly knowledgeable. But what is the flip side weakness to having lots of knowledge he can be thought of as condescending he can be thought of is arrogant, in fact, one of the trainers for Benson also trained Joe Biden when he was going head to head against Palin. And it was a similar situation. Which is Joe you need to watch out for people thinking that you're a bloviating blowhard. And that you know, it also when Sarah Palin puts her foot in her mouth, which she will do you can't necessarily rhetorically kick her while she's down. So this is considered to be if you think about this in polite company, a pretty rude line that Benson offers. So if I say the last time I did neither the event, and I was speaking to somebody in the second row, I knew that student that.

"I hated it because they were talking about things of interest to me, I just wanted to help people. So I thought how do I do this? I still don't know. And then I ended up in prison. Did I say? We laugh like we'd met before. Now, doing talk doing to talk. I just like to try and sound edgy sometime talk to a bunch of inmates. There's a program called the last mile and in San Quentin prison is an Francisco they teach the inmates how to code. So I went in. And I spoke to these guys fifty or sixty of them and afterwards, four of them came up to me. And they said, hey, that website you'll talking just talking about it back, then that website talking about we can make it and those guys what Harry Joel and Charlie and Erin, and that's in prison. These are the four guys that have gone on to build my side, which is called kinds of kinds of. If you like it, but that's what it's called. And it's essentially the meeting-place human kindness. Online dating the acts of kindness. If you need help, you go there and just post, it, whatever you need help with non financially, and if you want to help you go and by locational category, and you just connect and amazing things starting to happen. Because who the first person was who we helped the people in the world. I mean, there's lots of people who need help. There was one person the week before it happened to be Mark. And Mark said to me, hey, I wanted to marathon. What do you think? So the first time I've spoken about it. So Mark put historian kind sim said they needed fifteen volunteers and fifteen people volunteered and so three weeks ago, he completed the Melbourne full marathon. And I was the first thing that condoms, I want to do and since then there's been lots of really cool little stories as a guy even just today. I just arranged where geiko case in bend, Oregon. His eldest son committed suicide, and he always told his oldest son that hit building Matry house, but never did. So now he wants to build a treehouse for his youngest, son. But he. Doesn't know how to build a treehouse. So he put that story on. And now there's about ten volunteers. We're flying off including myself on December twelve I think to go and build a treehouse just because people are kind, but obviously takes bravery to ask for help. And I think that's probably more the challenge. Trying to dispel this myth that this week to us help because there's no it's needed helping in connection is so important to us as people. So anyway, it's a bit of a keynote on there's a lot of messaging in there about setting and trying your best and opportunity and all that kind of stuff. But ultimately the end of the day if there's anything I'd like to leave with you. It's just it's idea that what's on your list, truly truly consider that. Because I think with consideration that answer could really change your life or certainly enhance your life. When you do that. I think you then have the ability to go and help other people, and then applies in a professional sense to know, you'll values in your professional live move forward doing that. And you will be better fuel customers, clients, etc. But it is simply what's on your list. That's the one. Question. I'd love to leave you with. And obviously if you need help with anything let me know if you'd like to help go to because it's people that need help right now. So so thank you. Appreciate it..

And so. I the checking girl therefore for his productions, and they'd never seen a girl like me because I totally went overboard as I promised him. I would I instead of checking people learn with pen and paper expected I was creating whole excel sheets and databases and researching everything appoint on every single person. And as I told him, we'll take the most mundane tasks, and I would I would kill it. I promised. So I did as the check in girl, I checked people in over tech people. And and as a result, it started creating so much momentum for the show that after a couple of weeks, rob came to me and said actually instead of being our checking girl, why don't you become our general manager for the show? And so that's how I became a general manager on Broadway. And so, and that's how I later then became Rob's protege. And as I started working with him more and more than. One day. He turned to me and said, actually, I wanna introduce suit to my cousin as well. Stephen. And I was like great. I would love to meet Stephen even though I didn't know what even did that when I met with Stephen a turned out. He was an incredible thought leader in the music industry. He had the scuppered lady Gaga he had managed Britney Spears. He was writing endless articles on how music was going to be disrupted in terms of distribution. Because around this time Spotify was coming up and all these music distribution services. So I came to him and said anything in everything I want to learn just give me the most mundane task. I can't wait to learn a health in any possible. And he said while I heard that you have worked at your school newspaper, and I might emus articles. So you must be a good editor. And I was like. Yeah. Even though obviously I just been on the business side. I didn't know how to add it that. I mentioned this you because and made them teach you how to reach out to your models and get them to respond to you one hundred percent of the time. But what you're find is that is that all these VIP's always had these side projects he's personal things are working on that you can help with and that they'll be grateful for and therefore one they will you to become their protege. And that's what happened with Steven. He sent me his articles that he was working on autographed article. And I didn't know what the heck I was doing. So that night, I story number soon as he sent the first article that night on removing every word and putting a new words and not knowing what to do. And I just tried to like show every sentence by doing something to each sentence. I remember that was like my metric criteria. But somehow I ended up sending it back to him. And he ended up liking it. And he was like, yeah. You did a good job editing. So then he gets on sending me more. And more and more. And then all of a sudden he sending started sending me his projects and his ventures and everything he was working on. And that's how I became evens protege. And then later on he said now, why don't I introduce you to my best friend, and who is the president of BBC. And that's when I then went to go work for an who actually now serves on our board at mogul. And that's when I ended up becoming ends protege.

"Even obviously Colorado were pretty effective at least on me. Right. And then we'll come up with other things. But then I realized obviously when you wanna thriving business you don't just want to cut costs. You also have to ramp up revenue. So that's a suggest what was probably my worst nightmare at the time. No kidding. Which was that? We should absolutely will up our sleeves ourselves and go selling door to door to door. So meaning the shy girl that interpret literally after that suggestion fold up my sleeves and went selling door to door trying to convince every single association every agency recumbent trying to recruit on campus. Even local restaurants are please advertise in our newspaper, please. And I remember that around this time there is a new restaurants on campus your street new too. House and had just opened up, and I thought to myself meeting, I should try that place because they just opened and actually we could really help them. And so I showed up and the manager so Raya came out, and she was so kind and warm, and and I asked her that her could she flees advertise in the newspaper. I actually really think it could be helpful. And and then she said, yes. And I was like, yes. And she said, yeah, absolutely took an and I was so grateful overjoyed. And then I was like this should cool it because she'll realize things wrong. And then she advertise, and when she did I told her I was going to eat there every single day. I was going to bring all my friends there. I promise I'll eat there all the time. And then I did a gain to sophomore fifteen then I ate there all the time about all my friends there, and then her business took off and then because her business to coffee on advertising more and more in the newspaper, and then took off and we went from bankruptcy to record profitability and six months. So that was my first example for myself that I could be like, my grandmother that I could be entre preneurs and just with my little step forward towards an opportunity that didn't look so perfect. It could even that side alley become the right path for me head. So when this time thinking, again, more more like I could be like, my grandmother. I van watched another movie and this time it was legally blonde as anyone. And then the movie she goes off to grad school Elwood's, the main character, and I didn't have the funds to go and visit Grech school. But because this is what my one look at what it looked like I thought maybe I should go there. Maybe they might give me the chance so without ever going to them. I applied to Harvard to actually the business school and not the law school, but they let me and and and then it so therefore I ended up becoming one of their youngest students. I ended up becoming one of the students to the point where by when I looked around the class everyone different than me. And I barely wanted to speak up. So he didn't. So the whole first year went by and everyone was so smart always raising their hands always seeming with the right thing to say, and sometimes I would know the right things to and I had the right idea..

"So having watched the show that being might only image of what you s colleges what American universities looks like I plied there to yell, and I wrote them a letter asking them to please just give me a chance. I knew I could do this one day be like, my grandmother. And so by chance they gave me the chance, and I ended up there on scholarship, and my very first time they're stepping on foot suffing on the campus grounds was the first ever saw college for myself. And what it looked like? And so I was amazed that of course, they had therefore imposter syndrome, and I really didn't think belonged. So the whole entire year. First year went by. And I literally just went from my dorm room to the class to the dorm room and back and didn't make an impact at all. So imagine by the time it hit the summer. I came back to plano, Texas and thought, well, what an impact I had just like my grandmother, right? No impact at all. And at that time. I was really regretful and realize that. Yeah, I lacked courage and confidence. But one thing I definitely didn't want to do even beyond that was have regrets. I while I didn't have courage or confidence. I didn't want to have grad. So I. I remember looking back upon the year, and realizing all these things that I should have done. I should've put my foot for it. I should have spoken up. More conversations, I should have participated more in different school activities. So therefore when I came back to campus myself more year, I promised myself. I would go for the next opportunity. No matter how small I was going to put my foot forward. And so then I got an Email from the Asian American students alliance at you asking for webmaster, and I didn't know how to code. I didn't really know what a what master was. But I was like all the by master. So must have only one who applied because the webmaster so the Asian American Stevens lines, and what was kind of neat was that? This association as part of being the webmaster one of the benefits that I got to go to board meetings. So I remember still going into the first board meeting for Asian American students lions and stepping in and being really excited only to find that everyone was super mad. Everyone was so livid for some reason. And it was because they were so angry that the school newspaper that morning had printed a racist cartoon against Asians. They're so mad to going to shut it down. We're going to protest. It's let's get rid of it, and it's protests shutdown this newspaper. I remember them all saying so the passing around this newspaper, and then I remember them like flipping the newspaper to the back. And that's when I got the newspaper and the back of the newspaper had this green add like the color of money, and it said that they were looking for financial analyst the paper. Was looking for financial analyst. And if you were interested show up to a meeting together with the publisher tomorrow and join the business stuff so thought to myself well that that way to make a change in this organization, but perhaps join them make a change from the inside health because perhaps the reason why they thought it was okay to print this racist cartoon was because they lacked a diverse stuff. So I showed up the next day to this meeting with the publisher. And I remember that I was surprised because there are only two of us there present at the meeting as it turned out the business staff for the newspaper had completely dwindled. So is only the two of us because we even without a protest the newspaper was going to shut down. It had actually gone into significant debt and was actually going to bankruptcy, and the ministration was floating it, and if we didn't do something about it. Then all of a sudden. It was going to shut down even without protest. So I remember at this time, I was again, so shy the interview and lacking, courage and confidence. But at least like one thing I could do to help the newspaper was these think about ways in which to cut costs like, okay? Well, redistribute the newspaper to different areas where people actually reading it. Let's cut it away from other areas. Let's. Carte color ads. Make it all black and white..

So really is so special to be here with you all and I'm excited to be able to share with you the journey since all the lessons, I learned along the way, but most importantly than the stakes made many many mistakes made my hope the end of our session together is that you get to apply all the lessons that I learned all the mistakes I made to yourselves right away. So that you can accelerate yourself personally, professionally become moguls right away today. So my story actually begins initially with family with family. That inspired me to wanna become a mogul. My great uncle running equivalent of the economists in Vietnam. My father was also inspiration to me in France, where he was wonderful adviser in tech and media that actually my biggest role model in life was actually my grandmother because my grandmother was amazing to me. She was this maverick who ran newspapers across Asia, providing others in need with information. She was one of the first woman actually, the first window drive a car in Saigon in Vietnam. And I wanted to be exactly like her growing up. Can you imagine what of maverick? She was a mogul to me. So I grew up actually because of the war abroad, I grew up in Paris. France, initially grew up there had a very Delic childhood. And then my parents started watching black and white movies over and over again. So they were falling in love with Marilyn Monroe films after Hepburn films and docking right Films phone. that made them realize that America was so incredible. And they hope for opportunities for us, my siblings, and knee and hope that perhaps I moving there. We could have more education opportunities anyway. So at ten out of nowhere. I moved from Paris France to plano, Texas. And when I was there who here has been to plano, Texas. Oh, a couple of aunts wall. Yes, we went to the same high school. So.

And that's where I think it's why think entrepreneurs learned the hard way and business, and I think it's why runner learn firsthand hard way because there's really no way to teach that to somebody. You really have to see like where is that? What what is it optimal amount that you can do like we're sort of pressing forward, but not too much where you're sort of putting yourself in jeopardy or your your company jeopardy, or whatever it is? And that's that's one of those things where there's not there isn't a book for that like there. And if there is it wouldn't it wouldn't be specific enough for the person, you know, it'd be too general. So I think it's toward the I've seen these races. You know this this past weekend. There's a lot of first time hours field. And that's that's partly what they should be the failure rate being it's kind of on the high end for most races this race. I think the conditions very hard. But I think yeah. Certainly being a first time on her miler the people run races. They run on probably run fifty mile races. Well, but they've never seen what the amount of suffering before it, and it made a lot of those kind of started fast or just a little things long along the way. It was first, you know, ten fifteen twenty hours, whatever it is. And they just don't know how to fix the problem now. And and maybe they didn't finish the race. And I bet next race. They'll come back, and they won't make this sexy got because they now they they learned the hard way whatnot do, and that's that's a lot of what what life is. And it's a lot of running. Powerful are full stuff. Definitely I think we covered both, you know. Extremes relentless. But also be sure to take breaks. Ultimately, I guess, and then that comes down to you know, no matter how extreme your activity whether it's running a hundred mile race. Whether it's building a business, again, working on a some creative projects, and the and does come down to, you know, making sure that you have the right balance such that, you know, you're pushing super hearts at the same time, though, you're doing it in a way where you don't go overboard. So it doesn't become completely destructive. So that was very very powerful lesson before we wrap up wanted to ask you is there any piece of life advice. You would give to the ideology. That's everybody listening to this now as a parting message. The life advice. That's that's heavy. It's like it's like it's like the meaning of life question. I think I think you have to find and one thing I think you have to find the thing you're really passionate about and I know this people use in reference to like finding the job you're Gardner about and sort of doing that. I think that's it's not a bad idea. It's not always super crackle just think that you should find, you know, anything or things you're passionate about life. And then really, you know, not just pursue it sort of Gresley, and and sort of take pleasure in and sorta spend your time doing it. But try to try to get better at it..

"Fiat's reconciling, those two different competing priorities. One is like never let go Don ever get complacent on the other hand, it's like, whoa. If you kind of like, Don, like make it more sustainable, you can also burn out retire self out. How would use says like the best rates are all those things. Yeah. It it's tough to. It's something to do. It's it's a good. It's a good question in terms of you know, I think that the the running for a few few sort of like running experts in top say in running these races. It's not how fast you're in. And how fast you're slow pace. Like, the reason I finished this race this past weekend under the cutoff wasn't just because you know, always stayed in the race that was part of it into power through, you know, like, nausea and vomiting for hours hours. Yeah. Duration sort of thing. But it's really because my minimum pace aren't they got back on. The course it was moving. I kept above a certain threshold. So so it wasn't believing like flying around obscene. Everyone of the course like it was like the like an easy five to run. I mean, I was really sort of power getting a sort of the mountainous terrain, and then this running as much as I could but not very fast, but the key was sort of keep moving keep that minimum speed going. And I think that's true of really anything. You have to find that balance of trying to run that Boise and speed. In a working anything your business relationship, you know, life and running you can do it for a while. There's a certain amount of it. You can you know, like in your tank of energy? You can't you do that. It's your like capital and business to it's like, you know, like, you know, Bernie through money, and that sort of thing you can do it for a while..

"And I think that it's one of those. I think it's the hardest thing for me to explain to somebody is is sort of like, why do it? But it's you know, I I've never met somebody who just does one hundred mile race and never want. So there's something about the finish. Where there's a commonality across all finishers, even though we all come from different backgrounds, and we all different reasons for running that that that race in particular keeps us coming back. And so there's something there. There's some kind of attractiveness there. Really? So what what's interesting in terms of those like the different phases. Right. Like so good to start is critical. Because if you burn yourself out too fast, you know, if you're not in the right mindset, and so forth, you know, that can be really difficult. I think the middle especially like you were mentioning this in the race site. You dress run this past weekend's the middle. Seems like also like a killer point, right. Because if you're already incredibly, you know, worn worn down rights and feeling like, you're not sure you can continue and just knowing that, you know, you're not even like halfway there. And like obviously the remaining half you're carrying the fatigue from the first half of the race. So let's talk a little bit about that. In your case. Just for this anecdotally just from this race. It was actually kind of fortress that another. Runner worse shape came right? As you were about to get your ID, which gave you that little bit of time to recover which done guy. I guess thought acid. He's actually get up and walk to the next stop to see what would happen. So just curious. They're like what is the bigger lesson? There. Do you think that, you know, your initial thought on maybe given my vitals, maybe it's better to stop. But like just taking those extra moments before calling it a day. You know, is there is there a bigger lesson there for like before you quit just like take your time. Or like, what would you say was the key lesson there? Yeah. It's a good. It's a good question. I think that certainly. I think anyone medically that would've looked at my stats or or anyone who examined would say that. It was there's there's no question that I did the less prudent thing by staying in the race like even even without a little bit of extra time. So I think it was it wouldn't have been a hard choice to make. And it wasn't last year at the same race when I also had to drop out. Fortunately, so it's it's one of the things where I don't know if the delay chains I have seen other incidents where not not to be personally. But for other owners were they choose to drop out and. Like sort of medical situation. It's just kind of those those middle miles where you've already gone a long way. But you've already got you still have so far to go after that it just hard to stop them staying out there for ten more hours or fifty more hours and just keeping going so now, and it is sit down in the chair and aid station or maybe with the support crew somewhere. And they say, hey, I'm out of the race. And they do, and you know, it becomes official take off their number out of the raise. And oftentimes of those people fifty minutes later, and they're totally fine. And all the was breaking and good thing about alternates usually have pretty big buffer in terms of how much tiny as a break. Like, you're not you're not, you know, every second isn't precious. You can take breaks here and there, and I think the worst feeling I've ever seen people experience is they drop out of a race. They take that break. And then fifteen minutes later. I mean, they're not fine. But they're finding off to continue in the race. That's no longer an option anymore. And what they realize is like, that's that's what happens you sort of ice it on those negative thoughts is what that self doubt creep in that this is it's no longer possible to finish this race..

"You can lose it in the first model, which is like it sounds like an odd comically think about it. Because if you start to fast, and you're and you're like not really sort of being strategic at all all of a sudden like your arrive gas, but like mild talent, you still have sixty miles in America, and potentially ultimate there are people that running very fast I lap with me and most most of them finish the race. Not because they're not good runner. It's just because they didn't sort of plan accordingly for how long it would be to do sort of the whole the whole thing it sort of Budgie in their advert. And I think that the as the race goes on just like as maybe like a business goes on. There are going to be things that come up union expect. I mean every wrong fourteenth finish at one hundred mile race or longer and I've had things. Go wrong, all fourteen of them. And it's not always the same thing. Sometimes there's. There's similar things. And I think that's going to happen in business and your ability and sort of your flexibility to to to sort of see that change to pivot necessary, go with plan b plans see plans, whatever you gotta do to get to get job on. I think that's really where you sort of refined that that skill. And then I think when you just like seem sort of like a business mature, I think when you reach the finish line people who have done it. It's like people have seen, you know company. Go from an idea to to something really successful. I think only they really know what that means to them. I think you know, the public and kind of get a sense of it or just kind of magic what that might be like. But I think that there really is. No there there's no concerted describe it to somebody. I think he's out there experience to to really get y somebody, you know, why would define everything in their life. Like why they would why they would sacrifice this much maybe in the business sense like years of doing something or in a lot of. Hard work and running to be able to put your yourself, this kind of just torture really for for a number of hours over a gay or even a couple of days. Like, why would you do it? Like, what are you getting out of the end?.

"Your place Queen. Just like you have to come to come home tired and destroyed after racing. You just know that that, you know, like things to do only get when you back, but but bigger than that, it's more of. Yeah. I do try to wrap up his many as many like work out sending out into that can before race. It doesn't it doesn't necessarily help you to be thinking about the race. I don't I don't know either. I think it's you know, the thing I like about these races. And and you have so much time. Like, I said twenty nine hours this raise is you? You'll take about whatever you want, even if you're listening to talking to people so all the time kind of in your own head. And I think it's you wanted to be focused on the task at hand like not sort of worried about other. There's nothing to worry about in terms of just surviving the day. And it kind of if you have other things you're bringing to the race. It's gonna affect your performance in probably in a negative way. And so I think that I've never tried to. I think that I am busier than a lot of people that I know that. Do this in terms of like, I don't have family obligations, and some that do, but I think that my my work are probably higher than than most people who ultramarathons, but I've never used excuse because I see this. That's just something. I've that's part of my life. And they have other things that I probably don't know about it's part of our their lives. So it really comes down to try said that, you know, running the meritocracy because on race day, the race doesn't care the courses and care, it just it just cares. Like who prepared new didn't who runs a strategic race? And you're does not and you as the mental fortitude to push through something, and that's really true of everything wife, you know, business as well. And I think that you see a lot of you know, you mentioned the phases of the race. I think that that's very true in terms of like the phases of a business or something where a lot of things you seen in a race. Like any race could be a five K could be marathoner and ultra marathon that I there's a lot of enthusiasm excite one of these starting to rates and everyone's kind of like very highly adrenaline. They're ready to go. And there's a lot of mistakes people make early in a business just like they early in a race the phrase the famous, quote is like you can't win a marathon in the first mile..

"It's when you're mile, you know, forty five hundred mile race, and it feels like you can't go one more mile. It's really hard to give yourself at. Why can't go one more how many fifty five war? And so if you kinda let that thought sort of grow, it gets worse and worse and worse, and that's often wide, you know, finishing rates maybe fifty percent or lower in some cases for Sunday's races. Even among very qualified runners. But I think the cross section is that it's very driven people with very good attitudes were willing to see kind of what limit to their potential are mentally physically emotionally given that. It's an incredibly fascinating kind of a also an incisive, Luke out human nature to you know, what like what drives people to take on such, you know, quote, unquote on the one hand suffering, but on the other hands tremendous sense of accomplishment pushing boundaries exploration both physically and mentally. So I'm excited to really break down on the constructs all different elements before I do that though you did just complete one hundred mile race this past weekend's so for everyone who, you know, again, as it's very difficult to imagine what it even means through an hundred miles like how long it takes what it's like up some down. So she could give us a quick rundown on what the what the race was like this past weekend with up some downs. Then we'll go from there too. Break Donald learnings in lessons from it. Yes. Sure. I just got back from running back to Miami last night actually from running the Halima one hundred in hills. Arizona town just outside of Phoenix into the the race was it's a hundred miles and it was five roughly twenty mile loops. And then you changed direction each lap. And it's kind of the terrain is sort of like that deserty desert. He kinda washed kinda hard packed sand and rocks and some sections whether about two thousand feet of climbing per lap and the same amount of dissent in Duluth. And so the the difficult part of it is it's a little bit cooler as on a you know, that it would be in the summertime at least. It's late October raises always held around Halloween. So Justin costumes, and they got a big party out of it. It's one of the biggest ultramarathons in the world one hundred dollars. So there were about six hundred people running hundred mile race and another two hundred and fifty people running a hundred K K race, which is sixty two. Two point two miles. So you don't want to be on the course of the same time. But the the difficult part is it's full exposure to the sun. So even though it was actually one of the hotter years about ninety degrees for the raise. But that wouldn't be considered hot in the summertime, Arizona. But when you have this on you for the race starts at six, am, you know, all all day that first day, you know, then goes down. And then you're you're kinda running into a little bit cooler night, of course. And then at kinda rough day, so it took me into the next warning. So actually didn't finish. So almost eleven AM the next day. So I started salmon Saturday finisher just before Levin logged Sunday. So I was in the desert sun for day and a half there. And the second morning was as you're already sunburn yard in hydrogen. Now, you're sort of battling the sun comes up again. So the desert sunrises are very careful not to you have to spend another day..
