"This month the full manica is brought to you by LinkedIn. Let's talk about what's professional today. On LinkedIn, important conversations are happening around what it means to be a professional. Right now, LinkedIn members are talking about things like needing more flexibility around where we work, how we work, and even taking time away from work to focus on family or mental health. Because those things should not stunt career development and growth. Instead, they should enhance it as we show up on our own terms. Professional is ours to define. And your authentic self is your professional self. Post your truth, show the world the authentic, professional you, and join the conversations redefining professional on LinkedIn. LinkedIn, welcome professionals. Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is will manica. This month we're highlighting innovators. Women who helped shape the world we live in today. From inventors to activists. Today we're talking about the inventor of the first video home security system. A woman so ahead of her time that her innovation wouldn't make it into households for decades. Her invention laid the groundwork for quite literally every iteration of home security systems in use today. Let's talk about Marie van brittan Brown. Marie was born in Jamaica queens New York in 1922. She was raised in Queens and would live there all her life. She became a nurse, married Albert Brown, an electronics technician and had two children. In her 40s, Marie realized she needed a change. Both she and Albert worked long hours late into the night. And from 1960 to 1965, the crime rate in their neighborhood had jumped nearly 32%. Marie wanted to feel safe in her home. She wanted a system that would let her know who was at the door whenever she needed. And would let her contact authorities as soon as possible. So Marie invented modern home security. Her system introduced some of the fundamental features of home security that we use today, including video monitoring, remote control door locks, push button alarm triggers, instant messaging to security providers and police. And two way voice communication. To install her system, Marie created four PEEP holes on the front door. At a variety of heights. This allowed a slide in camera she set up on the opposite side of the door to see visitors no matter their height. From there, Marie connected the front door camera to a wireless monitor. She could carry the monitor with her, and therefore see the front door from wherever she was in the house. A microphone allowed Maria to communicate with whoever was outside the door. And finally, Marie could control two buttons from her monitor. A key to unlock the door if the person was a visitor. And an alarm to call the police if they were an intruder. The system was revolutionary. Up until this point, closed circuit television had only really been used for military surveillance. Marie's invention took this technology and brought it into the home. Marie created the system with the help of Albert's electronics knowledge. In August of 1966, the couple filed the invention for a patent, under the title, home security system utilizing television surveillance. It was approved three years later on December 2nd, 1969. Just a few days after receiving the patent, Marie was interviewed by The New York Times, and she laid out its potential uses. She said the system would enable a woman alone in the house to alarm the neighborhood immediately. And if it were installed elsewhere, it could help officers prevent holdups and crime. Despite its innovation and usefulness, Murray didn't make any money off of her invention. This could partly be due to the high cost of installing such systems and other houses during the 70s. Either way, it was the blueprint for the home security system industry we know today. A $4.8 billion business in North America that continues to grow. By 2013, at least 13 other inventors cited Marie's patent in their own. Marie was also later recognized and awarded for her work by the national scientists committee. She died on February 2nd, 1999, at the age of 76. For more information and for pictures of the women were highlighting, check us out on Facebook and Instagram at womena podcast.

How I Built This
"jamaica queens new york" Discussed on How I Built This
"From NPR, it's how I built this. A show about innovators, entrepreneurs, idealists, and the stories behind the movements, they built. And guy raz and on the show today, how a lifetime of shaving with products that irritated his skin inspired Tristan walker to build a better shaving and beauty brand for men and women of color. Walker and company. So what are the guiding principles of creativity? Is that some of the very best ideas? Come out of sheer frustration. Products like honest tea or clif bar were all birds or Dyson. These all came about because their founders couldn't find the beverages or energy bars or shoes or vacuum cleaners that they wanted. So they invented them. But in the case of Tristan walker, I think it's safe to say that he didn't just start from a place of mild frustration. He actually started from a place of being fed up. Even angry, because for most of his life, he had felt completely ignored, totally overlooked whenever he walked into the shaving aisle of a drug store. Virtually all the big shaving brands were making products that worked well on men with relatively straight hair. But Tristan couldn't find a high quality razor that worked on his curly facial hair without leaving razor bumps all over his neck and jawline. And he knew that like him, many African American men were dealing with the exact same problem. So he decided to design bevel, a shaving system with a simple, single blade razor that was easy on his face. And he wanted everything about the product to look and feel great, not like the dusty boxes of shaving products for African American men that always seemed to be on the bottom shelves of the drugstore, and his ambition to build a black owned and lead consumer brand as big as Johnson & Johnson or Procter & Gamble. But of course, when he first tried to raise money from all those VC firms on sandhill road in Silicon Valley, he got a lot of nose. But eventually, he was able to launch his company with the Razer, some shaving cream, a bit of oil, and a brush. And over the past 5 years, his brand has grown to include more than 30 specialized hair and beauty products for men and women, which are now sold in lots of big retailers across the country. A few weeks ago, Tristan sat down to tell me how he did it. In front of a live audience at the Lincoln theater, in Washington, D.C.. Thank you. This is like Tristan walker central. I'll take it. So let's start at the beginning. Tell me about your childhood. You grew up in Queens. The way I like to describe it is I had a bit of the rose that grew from concrete story. I grew up in Queens, New York, projects, welfare, bounce of homelessness, that sort of stuff, right? And I realized very early, I had one goal in life. And as a kid as wealthy as possible as quickly as possible. I realized three ways to do it. The first was to be an actor and an athlete. That didn't work. The second was to work on Wall Street. That didn't work. And the last entrepreneurship and thank goodness I came to that realization. We were little boy, your dad died. He was killed. He was killed. And you grew up with an older brother and your mom. What did your mom do? For work. So my mom worked three jobs, mainly New York City housing authority and administrative assistant. She spent some time working for Time Warner cable. And she did some retail, all at the same time within 7 days. I don't know how she did it. She did it, thank goodness for her. It was not easy, but she persevered as a result of, I think, her perseverance. I had to get fortune to be first graduate college in my family. And she really of course actually. What do you remember about your neighborhood growing up as a kid? Was it, I mean, I don't know, what did you do? Did you, you know, it's funny. I didn't do much because I couldn't do much. My father was killed when I was three years old. I don't remember too much about him other than the fact that he was killed when I was three years old. Which is a little bit telling to kind of the type of environment that I did grow up in. So I lived probably the first 6, 7 years of my life in Jamaica, queens, New York, 40 projects. And the time I turned around 7 years old, we moved to flushing queens to another project, kind of development. And it was much of the same, right? And my mother was like, you're going to be the one, you're not going to go through this stuff. So it's very disciplined. Stay home, get your studies done. You're not going outside. When I snuck outside, she caught me, I got in a lot of trouble. But that was really kind of my life. Get to school, get home, do your work, repeat. Wow. And that discipline actually kind of got me to where I am now. Easy for you, as a kid? Yeah. You a good student. I was a good student. Because of the discipline that was inspired in me, I always excelled. I tended to be at least up until high school anyway. At or near the top of my class. And I kind of slowed down when I say that stuff because by the time I got to high school, I realized I didn't even know what a verb was. I went through this entire kind of time all the way up until my high school years doing really, really well. And some of my class, not even knowing what the verb now, and that sort of thing was. As a teenager, you ended up going to this really elite private boarding school Hotchkiss in Connecticut. Shut up. So the way I like to describe Hotchkiss is is the first time I got to see how the other half lived. I went to school literally with rockefellers. Ford's, right? And I learned a couple things first, name, mattered. To being wealthy, wasn't the same as being rich. And the last and probably the most important was I can compete with each and every one of them. While. I didn't know what a verb was, I learned. And by the end of my four years there, on a roll, that sort of thing. It was a absolutely just wonderful experience for me. But transformative in a little bit different from how I grew up. Was it, I mean, was the transition for you when you got there? Because you were like 14 years old. Yes, I've been living away from home since I was 13, 14 years old. And were the first few months that hard for you? Academically, yes? We get to the school and I realize I don't even have a computer. And all of my other classmates had computers that sort of thing. And I went to, I believe it was the English professor who was my adviser at the time. And I remember he took me to like this basement and where all the used textbooks are. And then there was this old compact presario computer. That we had to haul out and take it to my room. So academically, it was very tough because I wasn't equipped with the tools to compete. But over the years, that kind of accelerated in one way. So you finish Hotchkiss, you go to stony brook.

"That he learned growing up through the music industry through the tv production industry and just some of the demons also the he had to battle to become better at what he does. One of my favorite things about this book is that early on in the book. Fifty points out that most people don't read. He recognizes that most people find it difficult to read so that when he decided to write a book he wanted to write a book that anybody could read that was in plain english the spoke to people directly that shared interesting stories anecdotes and yet was very practical and the book reads exactly like them. Probably one of these is reads. You could find in the business genre. And you feel like the sound of fifties voice. Then you can grab the book on audible. Because he narrates the book himself. The first chapter of this book is worth the book itself. Even if you just listen or read the first chapter nude be worth the purchase. The chapter is titled finding fearlessness. And it's about how you need to face your fears that anybody that she's anything. Life of any significance had conquer some fear or had to actually move forward. Despite their fear had to do things that they did not want to do they were scared of that had doubts about. This is a rite of passage. You have to do this if you want to succeed. And you really dissect says point in a really elegant way he actually gives you impractical exercises or even some mental exercises. You can do to face your fears to move forward. Despite your doubts. I've done in my life. That most of the time. When i don't achieve something by does succeed to a level that i am really happy with its because i was holding myself back because i was afraid to expose ourselves does not really pushing myself because of some internal fear and every time i did things despite being terrified it ended up. Being success ended up either being successful in the traditional sense but also successful in terms of i learned a ton about myself and about business. The second chapter is all about hustles gold heart of a hustler and he talks about his work ethic and boy does this guy work hard. He is very very passionate about what he does. And growing up in the inner city from jamaica queens new york. He really doesn't take anything for granted he really feels that he can outworked anybody because none of this seems like worked in. This is all seems very very fun to him. Compared to the struggle he was enduring in his earlier days. That's not to say that he doesn't have new challenges being famous and being rich and being sought after but in this chapter he describes bisky his daily routine. And some of the things that you could do every day to just be more productive one of the things that he does regardless of if he's busy if he's tired if he's traveling if he's sick if he's whatever every single day he exercises and he says this is the key for him to have the energy that he needs to have to hustle harder. The third chapter about constructing your crew or your circle of influence. The people around you as jim rohn is famously known for saying you are the average of the five people you surround yourself with and in this chapter he shares stories about how he cut off. People from his circle of friends has certain types of people in his crew to do certain things or help them in certain ways but most of all have fun. People that we're going to support your goals it's hard to achieve kohl's live as hard as it is. Don't make a hard on herself by having people around you that don't support you. And he defines what support means now support doesn't mean they just say way to go every single time you achieve something or cheer you on from the sidelines. That's good and all but really want is people that are doing what you are trying to do. We're success is normal. One of the things. I realize is that the more time i spend with people that have achieved things i want achieve the easier. Those goals seem just seems like. That's just the standard so you have to do. And even if i come up a little bit sure i would be far more successful than if i you know weren't around these people. I wasn't exposed. To what high level performers do another powerful chapter in this book that i loved is called evolve or die. He talks about in the hip hop and rap industry very few rappers can perform forever knowing this and seeing other examples in the culture of hip hop he realized. I can't wrap forever. I can't rap about the same things forever. i'm not the same person. When i started rapping. I have to diversify my towns. Have diversify what. I invest my time and effort and brandon whether it's making deals and investments with vitamin water or becoming the executive producer of power. Which is a huge tv series on starz or acting in films you gotta become more than what you were at the beginning. He mentioned other hip hop stars. Like dr dre who expanded his empire through beats by dr dre or snoop dogg. Who is really a social icon. Now he gets gigs. Just because people love him i was just watching some clips of him and kevin hart doing these funny commentating on the olympics but people dig their heels and say no. I'm one thing and never evolve. They die they get forgotten. And i really really resonated with this because i realized that this is applicable to all walks of life especially entrepreneurship. I'm always trying to evolve. Because i know that if i don't i'm not growing and i will not continue to be relevant in the world of business not in terms of relevancy people known why am but understanding what works and what doesn't becoming a better entrepreneur. Yes i'm a podcast. But i'm not just upon caster yes. I love a good blog but i'm not just a blogger. That's why i got into courses and that's why start a software company that's why started speaking on stages so it can be better speaker onstage. I know the future requires me to keep growing.

"You know you're a you're a tried and true new yorker. Your data's from alco puerto rico. And you know you really emphasize pudding a lot of puerto rican culture into your worse. I wanna start their first. How you got started as an artist. And how much of a factor did your upbringing have in influencing so much of your work. I mean well. I started off. An art mean grew up in queens jamaica. Queens new york actually grew back of my first influences of art pretty much cartoons back in the days we only had like you know very limited. Tv channels you know. We didn't have cable back then. It was no pads. There was no youtube so pretty much had channeled two four five seven nine eleven so everything from cartoons back in the day but which really gravitating. My love was a graffiti. I used to live right by the elevated trains in queens. That will bring a lot of artists from brooklyn and graffiti was pretty much alike a beginning process taking my art to that next level which increasement of know pretty much cartoons and everything you see on tv from tom. And jerry you know. Chew of space goes so a lot of cartoons that we grew up on everyday. Because that's pretty much what we had kids. We didn't have movie. We had movies but not to the point where you know streaming is availability now. We didn't have that back in the day. So the i love like the first dimension that took me to another place was graffiti. Actually the the thing about graffiti especially you know with five points and such a huge resurgence. I know of so many. So many friends are were that were intergraph when they were young and our back into it now and they're filling up their black books and leave in stickers throughout most of the boroughs The thing about it is that when you look at graffiti especially now it's become such a fabric of life verses back in the day when we were growing up it was always like i you know it was either a really nice mural or maybe a really good role gate at a store but it wasn't as widely accepted as it is now and i kind of want to touch on that because when you were picking up graffiti growing up. Did you always aspire to integrate that into your work or were you trying to go out there and and bomb and do that stuff again. Not that that's not that we're encouraging it. But obviously you gotta get your feet wet. You know yet. But i mean still connecting on your first question you know. My roots is pretty much also incorporated Because well you know being you know my nationality one in new york city but american but my ethnicity being body equa- Sense of who. I am and where we come from that also interprets in my work as well never never forgetting losing the cultural roots of where you are regardless of where you might be born from. You know what i'm saying. So that definitely is highly impacted.

"Well that is That is a movement that is ongoing and we have many successes two point to In that regard what our goal is to democratize power understanding bet that issues of infrastructure That we need to be able to connect pothole pothole in community to community so people in jackson mississippi understand why there's a community that looks just like theirs in jamaica queens new york In gary indiana or detroit michigan in that process of fixing pothole in that process of of how we repair our infrastructure in terms of water what we ultimately learned is that the pothole was never a problem in the first place. Your problem is that you don't control the decision making process that leads to the pothole being fixed and so we do that by having people's assemblies where we engage community. We do that by participatory budgeting understanding that. The budget of the city is a moral document. And if we don't listen to the community listen to what the community needs in scratch where they may be itching than it reflects what. Our values are as a community. we've done that through making sure that we extend We extend a model which is just in and transparent as we look at the issues of public safety and policing not only making sure that we have a police. Ib task force populated by the community. So that they can work alongside the police department and understand how public safety must look. And so we've done that in a number of ways we're looking at that in terms of economic mobility and economic development in community understanding. That we wanna be a business friendly city but we also understand that it has to be a reciprocal relationship and so we lift up cooperative business models as well so that we can learn how we can feel the gas even as we have this conversation about water and the incident. End the issue of water over the last month or so of the reality is that every effort in order to support. The infrastructure of the city of jackson has been undertaken by the residence by the people more than the state itself The decision to tax themselves more in order to help the infrastructure was supported over ninety percent by the residence. The state isn't filling in the gap or standing in the gap when people decide to tax themselves more. Those are people taking the issue in their own hands realizing that we are the we are. We've been waiting until we would be way or very quickly. Mississippi become the second state in the nation to offer vaccines to everyone above sixteen. At the same time the mask mandate has lifted the significance of this for your city for jackson the contradictory message. And i believe that it is. It is dangerous happy of that. We can expand the opportunity for people to be maximum needed You know every health professional I'm listening to all the health professionals. We listened to nationally. I have indicated that it is just too soon. In order to lift amass mandate on the city of jackson. We execute our policy based on science not politics And so we will maintain our mass mandate in the city of jackson. However the state's decision to do otherwise still puts us in a compromised position because we're not only the capital city where the capital health care. What that means is as surrounding cities may not issue the mass mandate when their residents unfortunately a fall victim to the virus they will overburden are hospitals in the city of jackson leaving. Not only of our residents In in greater danger of those individuals who seek hospitalization or seek medical attention for a myriad of other issues even outside of ovid And so i think that it is contradictory. I think that it is confusing in think that it is ill time. Shoka antar lumumba. We thank you so much for being with us.
