They can really live their best healthiest lives. So you know, if you look at what we've built out in terms of this wellness ecosystem, whether it's nutrition or activity or mindset, motivation, sleep relationships, whatever that isthe Having Oprah and her voice to be able to amplify and it's really her superpower is galvanized people.

"The opposable thumbs. Okay continue he or she may be gasping for air as they're trying to do it seeing as how they're outside of element unless it's an underwater tree so I'm going to give listeners some examples where we before we get into this idea because I want you to figure out today what is your gifting. What were you called to do all right? The word vocation originally meant calling. That's what it meant in the original. Latin is calling. We're vocation means calling or vocation means calling so I'm asking you what are you into. What is the thing that you pursue when you do you like it? It's like it's called the flow state three lose track of time and space. Because you're so into it. So Jason You the notable quotable for Mr Albert Einstein who by the way yes he was a physicist yes. He did things where you're going. I don't really. We know how applies that like. What did he do? He was a physicist. I mean how does that really impact our life. I'm sure a lot of people think about but yeah it was genius. What did he do of practical value of practical value? He was the one who introduced to President Roosevelt. The idea that the Nazis were developing a nuclear weapon. He pointed out that. Hey if we don't get on IT WE'RE GONNA die why because we hadn't started our program yet and they were almost done so we started the Manhattan project. Albert Einstein recommended that we choose Robert Oppenheimer to lead the project. They began to make the nuclear weapon. That we then dropped on the Japanese thus ending World War Two. We would all be speaking German right now. Though if Albert Einstein who was Jewish but he was born in in Germany did not save America so he read their Albert Einstein in my opinion is one of the founding fathers of modern freedom. We would not be free today day if it weren't for Albert Einstein so please read the notable quotable Jason from Albert Einstein. Albert Einstein says everybody is genius but if you judge a fish by its ability not to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. The question I have for you at this point of our journey together is what is your genius okay. So let's I want to get Dr Brex. Take on this. I'm going to. I'm going to throw myself under the bus to explain to you in what areas of my life. I am official trying to climb a tree. I went to school school and at school. I am semi dyslexic. Which means that? I don't understand the words reading on a page until I read it like the third time time thus it's hard for me also have very very limited capacity to memorize things so when I read something I have to read it over and over over and over and over and over so a lot of school consists of this all right class. I want you guys to do today. Once you get your book your history book read pages eighty through one ten and I want you to memorize memorize the states and the state capitals well for me. That's like an impossible task that to me is like asking a fish just to climate tree but our modern school system is based on memorization. That's the system drew so therefore because that is the system is memorization. I I can't participate in that conversation. I can't do well. They're so therefore in school. I thought I was an idiot and then and I realized fairly quickly. I'm not an idiot. I'm just a fish trying to climb a tree but I tried for a long time to climb that tree thinking I was an idiot. Another example physical coordination. Don't have it so I tried to live up to Dad was a very good athlete. I tried to play sports and I was okay at certain sports I got I got to be pretty good at basketball. Doesn't great but I was trying to climb a tree. Three and I was a fish what was born to do when I'm good at his business is very easy to me. It's what I do it thinking of logical conclusions of if you do this. This works like the scientific method towards business. If I do this this works asking me to me. It's very easy to go. I wonder I wonder how everyone gets to top Google. I know what I'll do. I'll download all of the websites that come up top for the search Tulsa deejays. That aren't mine mine and then I'll look for common denominators in. That's what I did and then I figured it out. I didn't know how to download site a pay. Some the students who are interns to come download the website. It was crazy as they were learning internet. They were they were college writing how to code and learning technology but they were. We're near new. They were about ready to graduate from. Osu with a degree in computer science and they knew how to download websites they didn't know how to get them to the top. Google into me. I just thought if we download the ones that are top. Eventually we'll find a common denominator and that's how I learned about title tags and descriptions and key words and content and all the things I learned about so again. I am naturally borne to be Internet marketing. Search engine hiring business growth accounting marketing expert guy. It's e business easy for me because I feel called to it so dark. Dr Breath you are. Do you feel called to chiropractor do. How do you notice how I was headed towards a medical school while I was in college alleged Kind of the opposite of you. A school came very easy to bring up God gifted me with a great memory. So memorization was an easier thing for me so real quick. Somebody needs to hear this it. It doesn't mean that I have to resent you right or vice versa. No we need to understand our gifting and respect each other because of them and to not compare in order to feel jealousy get off of social media and stop comparing Dr Brick is a very smart man for a good at memorizing. But you're also we're all we're all smart in our own way so you were good at memorizing good at school so you thought I should go to medical school right so I was headed towards medical school and then realized I was disenfranchised franchised with that whole idea and then I discovered chiropractic for the first time I hadn't experienced it as a patient But I started looking into it. Further and further deeper. I got into it the more I realized aligned with my passion and so it did very quickly become apparent to me that it was actually my calling the the philosophy of health. That health comes from the inside out that God has designed to heal that we're one with our world and the nutrients that we bring into. Our Body are important for its health and wellbeing and so all those aspects together gather to said yes. This is this is you. That is good that that right there. My friends that right there. That is good. Now let's say you're listening right now and you say I don't know my calling. Well I'm GonNa say this and then Dr Brooks has as a hot take care. I'm going to say this us. You should spend your entire day all day. Yeah Yeah you know no I know I know right now according to Nielsen I want you put it on the show notes Okay Nielsen. The average average person consumes eleven hours per day of media. Just do a Google Search for eleven hours of Media Nielsen. You'll find it in Google and put a link in the show notes but the average person we. We don't have time for you. The average person you have time but the average person doesn't the average person you listening right now. You have the time. The average person does not have the time to figure out. What's it's going to do with their life? Because they are on social media most of the day eleven hours a day. They don't have to date. They are busy right now. Thankfully when I was trying to figure this out social media within exists so so you sat down and thought about what you wanted to do. I really made a very conscious effort to figure out what path I was going to take and then very very intently intentionally went down a certain direction but I was going to say that I really felt that I could succeed in the school academic setting and so I knew you you know when there was a test What the measure was to success however once I graduated and I was in business? That's when I became fish climbing a tree so just the opposite of you you clay I was I was way out of my element trying to run a business and so that's why I figured out I had to put other people around me like you to be able to to make it for my shortcomings so that we could complement one. Another and the thing. is we all everybody out there in some area of our life we are a fish trying to declamatory right. Now I'm GonNa Queue up audio for you. This is what I spent my entire day on. Yesterday I spent over twelve hours yesterday on this and the way we spend my saturdays just to listeners knows I get up around three usually. Yesterday we were up late on Friday. A kids went to a football game. And so we're later. So Jason United met at the office at what time four forty eighty five or five. Is it five four five forty five so we met clients and do we did and then we got home around nine nine thirty I think and then hung out with family and did some chores about my western flowers and went to the store and watched a movie with my wife and swam and had a great time but then when the kids are off doing their thing and they go visit their friends kind of pocket of time so I had about twelve hours I was working on so it was like five hours on Saturday and maybe two on Thursday night and then another one or two Monday. But I've been working on this all week I. I'm very excited about this. This is an audio td. JAKES has a great sermon. He just did called called grasping the moment. Td jakes grasping the moment. And it's about how you if you are the one who it feels called to do something then you're gonNA run into opposition and people that don't agree with you and people that want to form committees and people and he talks about how trying to seek consensus is the worst thing possible because nobody is going to agree with you because if they already agreed with you they would have already done it and so it's a really good message but I turned it into this this.

"And chasing Kelly from Bloomberg radio the story Jill is not unlike that of so many esteem Silicon Valley tech started to move fast it disrupted established industry we're talking about the cigarette business that's right and it has found itself in the middle of probably one of the biggest public health controversies we've seen in quite some time learn at our joins us from LA she is the co author of one of the really most compelling read the magazine this week it's all about jul I learned a ton from this story Lauren this back to the beginning because the origins of this company are fascinating yeah absolutely so like many other Silicon Valley companies this one started at Stanford University the two founders of the company were graduate students studying at the business school and today were smokers and they were sharing smokes out back and decided that wow this is a very outmoded product and maybe we can innovate on this so that's what they set out to do they did a lot of research they launch their very first version of an E. cigarette at a time when there wasn't too much competition in the market so they basically innovated and the cigarette space and launched what became the most popular E. cigarette in the world it wasn't so easy right the first I think the the initial device maybe didn't work so well it was hard getting investor money to initially yeah yeah you know it's interesting because at the time when they were seeking money this is circa two thousand and five to two thousand and ten when they're really starting to have a prototype they want to start launching it and they kind of got the cold shoulder from Silicon Valley investors originally this is considered the tobacco industry is kind of considered to be one of the sin industries and Silicon Valley really kind of shined and shun those sin industry so they originally had a very tough time getting some funding but that all changed of course a little bit later down the road and what changed it I mean obviously part of it was is this sinning because they got people on board with this idea of no no no no this is actually an antidote in a way to what was already considered then a public health crisis exactly so two things well multiple things happen but really cigarettes hedges it was very clear that cigarettes were going to be a dying industry fewer people every year were smoking three percent declines year over year and everybody was starting to turn away from cigarettes but of course they're addicted they are due to the nicotine so that's sort of what the company founders really zeroed in on we cannot allow smokers to continue to have the nicotine fix but it's not gonna have the combustion that causes the tar and along sin is ultimately the causes lung cancer so the kind of position it almost as more helpful product is helpful attributed to cigarettes and that's really it started catching on but the second thing was really it's a very addictive product they invented to something called a nicotine salts vape liquid and basically they had tennis early on in their laboratories and they devices will try a powerful nicotine liquid and that that for sure helps get a lot of people hooked onto their products and I think it is so troubling is how did so many teenagers right those under age get hooked on a product like tool well this is victorious tissue regarding tool but the fact of the matter is early on jul laid out and marketing campaign that was pretty much designed to attract kids it was super edgy it had colorful graphics really bold they hire models on it just made it look like a very cool product they they marketed on Instagram and sure enough to much to nobody's surprise high school students eventually and medical middle school students eventually started trying the product and the combination of the market and a highly addictive nature of the product really allow this product facilitated this it facilitated the spread of this products across America and high schools and middle middle schools right and so now you have millions of people addicted to it well the other element your street it's so interesting is you say like many other Silicon Valley stars I think of something like were they just kind of came into the market may be ignored you know regulations this fast moving mindset that was very much a part of the jewel model like just kind of get it out there because from what I understand and your reporting along with Ellen Hewitt is that there were folks within the company there were uncomfortable about kind of how fast they were ramping up into who they were ramping up yeah exactly they really adopted and embraced the model that is ask ask forgiveness not permission and that's we saw that with uber or when they flooded the streets with these on demand cab drivers and then we thought with birds scooters that's why you trip over bird scooters everywhere on street corners so they really they adopted that models like let's just get it out there as fast as possible we need to really own this market as quickly as possible because was rapidly becoming more competitive with the big cigarette companies getting in it so they really did they scaled up super quickly they were hiring lots of new people they were producing the product at a really and fast free and yeah that'd make people inside the company uncomfortable they felt like well wait a minute let's let's slow down a little bit let's make sure our internal controls are adequate enough so we don't have any sort of problem down the road but the reserve constantly a mind set of growth first and then let's figure it all out later which is a traditional Silicon Valley model but when you have a product that has such it huge health implications that sort that's where got sticky well and learn it feels like also mindful of the fact that regulators and didn't really know what to make of this lawmakers didn't know what to make of it so they had this moment that they could seize that while those were filled for figuring it all out they were going to build a big business yeah this is the most interesting aspect of all of this is when the cigarettes and jewel started really on rolling and I'm rolling the products I was on two thousand and fifteen and the FDA have been regulating cigarettes and tobacco products now for several years but when they wrote the regulation they didn't include any cigarettes as a quote unquote tobacco product so here come these companies that are starting to sell these highly addictive nicotine products and there is virtually no regulation from the FDA so they had a golden opportunity tool and all these other E. cigarette companies they had a golden opportunity to seize the market to flood the market with as much as their product before regulators came in a kind of rain that man so jul definitely exploited that and all the other E. cigarette companies did too and that facilitated definitely the rapid wildfire spread of the jewel that we've seen over the past few years that's morning at our joining us from Los Angeles this feature story Jason unite talked about a lot the news and I think what's interesting about this one is I think we all just kind of take for granted jewel in the market place but this gets into the to Stanford you know graduates who worked on this created this the troubles and kind of bring it to market initially but how they became really the major player in this market and how they did it I find really under the radar of regulators well and now very much friend of mine for regulators in very much friend of mine I feel like in the broader public conversation this happened very quickly it's a fast moving story this is really important context and full transparency Michael Bloomberg the founder majority owner Bloomberg LP the parent company of Bloomberg radio Bloomberg television has campaigned and given money in support of the ban on flavor

I'm looking around and told the other teams, I baseball coach said are you gonna coach for us? I'm like, oh now, there's the fence thing. Yeah. Already a little frustrated per se share first game opening game of the season. So I'm like, okay. I walked back. I the plays next inning comes up the whole games neck and neck and like this is a pretty tight game. But it's cool. I just want to win. Finally, the last inning that were up. The score gets way ahead. When I talk about way ahead. We're like eight runs ahead. Y'all are okay. So it's pretty much over. But you never know you never know. I don't like stopping snowflake coach. He's a he's coaching with you. He's on the other side. Now, the third base coach. Aren't you understand your coaching was same thing? I'm making sure yes. Yes. I do the third base coach birthday. Mr. Allen, I picked basketball. I don't know the square could be thirty. Making sure you will not a first base and third base. Coach does I just wanted to make sure you're on the same team coaching Saint coaching staff. Exactly calling your own fellow coaches snowflake snowflake coach. Way more sensitive about like the score. And the score gets really hot word is kindness. He's more kind title. Jason. I'm with you on this coach before I coached the basketball team, and it was a church basketball team. So this is not serious. We press the entire time beat a team I ninety two to to fourteen and I wanted to score one hundred wins were on so I don't know about. So you're upset that he go ahead. Sorry Jarrett said it's like there's certain when you're younger sometimes the score. Like, oh, if you get up to high we're not even going to put on the board. Or if you if you're basketball, I remember you couldn't play certain amount time. But you know, it's a competition. So what do you? Oh, you do. Good. So we're going to limit you. Oh, say where you're going with that. I don't like that at all. I don't like that your either playing or you're not get hurt when you're not playing. You're halfway point. That is my point. He's not listening. He's crime anyways. The scores way up in his mind. He's thinking let's tone down the stealing and is his reasoning behind that. Because he doesn't wanna make the other teams feel bad. Yes. Oh that happens a lot. He needs to be Jerry does not happen. I played a basketball down eight him on the team. Eighteen is a visual eighteen and then everyone else, and I remember playing a team from Charlotte. Years ago, and they they were up by thirty at halftime. But there was no mercy rule. There was no they still press the whole game in a what we thought afterwards. You know, what we need to get better? And we learned from that, it was embarrassing, and I'll take his worst from the opposite side Jason sorry. Opposite side. I played more basketball football up like for basketball. We see the other teams that's like not really trying anymore. It's even more insulting. That would be. Yes. Like organizations, especially when it can't cut public, not the private organization. There's rules not so much. There's no rules in the pony that you can't do that. But there's there's rules in like Landon school basketball wants to get this far up. You guys can't do this. And this and there's rules for that. I think it makes them more confusing. Play doing so well, but you're going to be penalized for doing so. Well, anyways. Getting texts. No other coach is the complete opposite than the snowflake coach. Okay. He is like stop mother's roots. All right anyways. So anyways, he's sensitive to the fact that our really starting to beat this team up let's chill out a little bit. I look at what's two outs. I look at our position who who's at that. Okay. These and player, but you know, we have two outs is the last up. I want that third base player. Who's our fastest kid on the team to steal home right in front of the pitcher? Feeling. Right right in front of the pitcher. I know he's so fast. Yeah. So I turned around to the stop on your throat coach and say, I think edge send the kid home right now. What do you think is the fastest player? Then I turned to the other coach he was taken all the stats, and I'm like, what do you think? He's like house. Well means two hours. That's what I think. So I'm like. Cost the filming. Oh. His base coach Goodman, but it's his base is in charge of his name. Control issue. The basis. Head shaking. No back to me. Mike. The kid. At coaches. Like. What to do? Yeah. Like that. I'm gonna make it all these. Grunt sounds because you wanna say blatantly steel, but almost instead as the Ed. Snowflake. Going. Going back and forth. Doing all this weird dance. Because he doesn't know what to do. You know what I'm saying? So finally. Sure enough food. He goes and the guy just about the pitch it feels safe right in front of him. Wear. Yeah. Wow. Third base is right near the other team. And the other teams coaches he turned around and looked at the other teams coach and the teams coach goes. That is the most classless thing you could possibly do. Surena? So in the meantime. Basically in their dugout and they're going back away from the kids. So they can't hear going back and forth like pointing and this and this and the like me. Getting mad. I'm like why is he getting that? Because he's like, I guess he was telling him. That's terrible has classes you should score bummer. This whole thing is going on. And I'm looking and meanwhile, the game's going on there's no third base coach anymore. I'm like, oh crap. First thing I'm thinking of oh my gosh. As soon as the game's over we're gonna have to do the lineup and all the coaches have to walk and shake hands with everybody. And they're going at it in the distance because of you, I guess he got. I guess. Oh, you told me go. And then he gets blamed for it. Yeah. So that ends they're still he's still over there while the switching in the field, and he's still over there. I can see their heated. Yeah. He comes over looking at me. She can his head like C, which is dead. Because you he said, we're classes now either appreciative say, where's classless? But then at the end, the apologize, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And I said he goes I told them I never sent him. He goes. Yes, you did. So the other coast things that Ed sent them no matter what just gonna let them take. No. He's like he's like, I don't know why he did that. So I turned around to the coach the coach and say, even he says, you go I swear to you the air coach goes. Yeah. But the scores really high. I don't know if that was the best. This is ridiculous. So everybody's looking at me like I just caused all this episode. Stop on your face. Coach was cool because he's safe if he was out all I would have paid for. So what is the lineup games over? And I'm like, I'm like, did you tell them that? I suddenly goes now I walk over in line and the coach the coach stops me and goes just out of curiosity. Did you send the third baseman? No. That was crazy. I walked back. I believe in keep going keep going not let up Katie now. I'm with you on that your either playing the game or you're not. Yeah. Exactly. And there's there's common sense when the kids are three years old or whatever they have all sorts of different learning playing for real. But what's you know, what's going on? And you're actually playing the game. It is confusing. Katie. Don't do this. But then they watch major league baseball or or NFL or they watch a basketball like will. They don't stop pressing or they don't do this. What am I was against everything that you are taught play sports when everyone says do you go out and try not everybody will agree with what we're all saying? Absolute Jason United coach together. One hundred percent agree with you. Okay. I am but snowflake coach just text me all upset with us. And he says it's rack Paul. Still do you still? Now, there's a difference. I will say if you don't want your players to get hurt like professional football. They sub out because if you're up so high. Players get hurt. We'll take our best players out. And let's put whatever. But no, I think if you're gonna play play, well, maybe I'll change my mind when my kids are playing. Even more now. And then of course, there's a second side of it were sportsmanship like if you're running. Like showboating that's different different playing like you normally play, and you're winning your home part is not typical. Way up. But in my eyes, I'm thinking, well, this is the time we can take this risk share. And that is the fastest kid on the team. That's a lesson. There is maybe sometimes taking a risk pays off. And then sometimes it doesn't by the way that was opening day for the year. He's in at all. Did you? Like, we don't wanna play. Yeah. You start losing when you're winning planning. All right, Katie.

"A fascinating look inside. What once was really a TV pioneer really defined. What we watch but fallen behind right? It's a different world when it comes to content creation and distribution. And of course, the magazine known for its survey of MBA programs business schools. We've got a little bit of an update from recruiters what they're looking for. And how they rank the top b schools. It's also interestingly, not all the same does very fascinated by that. Plus, we take you to El Salvador where there's a city of coffins of sort building up an economic take on a pretty tragic political scene there. But I care we've got something from the economic. Section President Trump's overhaul of taxes that resulted in the tax cuts and jobs act of 2017 cut the corporate tax rate by a lot. But just I think the question is did it result in companies going out and doing a bunch of spending. And that as a result help the economy, you know, who's got the answer to that question. The guy in front of us the guy in front of us one of our all time favorites here at Bloomberg TIMMY, Hiti he's an economist with our Bloomberg economics team here with us in New York. So maybe he I felt like reading your story. It was a really good reminder of how economics actually works in real life. So as you try and analyze this tax cuts and jobs act. How do you do it? It's very difficult. And I think I want to start out by saying, and this is in the economists on the one hand on the other is that this is a very hard thing to measure a lot of other people have taken a stab at it and the range of estimates and impacts is quite broad that being said, I put a lot of time into looking at okay. We've had a lot of promises from the White House about what this is gonna do for the economy. We've heard about consumer spending we've heard about investment, but are we actually going to see that second piece actually gonna see abuse from investment and the takeaway from this pieces. Yes, this is very big. And so this plays into the supply side argument a little bit that you will see something from tax cuts, but also kind of puts a puts a bit of a cap on and says like even if you get something really talking about a tenth of a percentage point here to growth last year and this year. All right. So Carol was an econ major take a step back with an English major. This is where we take a step back and remind us supply side, demand demand-side basic definitions. Sure, so supplies out economists believe that if you deregulate, and you give tax cuts that will help incentivize businesses to invest their view is what's keeping this businesses. From investing is actually the government demand. Economist will tell you look that matters. But what matters more. Is where we are in the economic cycle raise their demand for those products. So that was essentially the framework with which I started with we put together a model that looks at both of those things are puts components from both tax cuts, and these other demand side effects turns out demand siders win in this case. And that's because these demand side capacity constraints output gab, those kinds of things matter much more than tax cut capital spending did increase right after the tax after the corporate tax cuts. That's right. And so I think this is where a little tricky because you see a number go up a year after something happens doesn't mean that that is the reason that the tasks for the reason that number wasn't effect. We can say that that's a true one to one correlation. Exactly. And so in order to do that we have put together a counterfactual kind of situation which would have been like if we hadn't had tax cuts. You talk a lot about the effective tax rate. Go into a little bit of that. And why that's important to discuss when we're chatting about this. Absolutely. Again. This is you know, you see a lot of the times in the headlines. Well, tax rates were thirty five percent for corporations are dropping on twenty one percent. That's a fourteen percentage. Point decrease sounds like a lot, right? Here's the thing though there. They're all these other pieces of tax reform and just the structure of the tax code that don't involve the actual rate, but do change the amount of taxes that businesses pay. So one thing to look as effective tax rate, which is the amount the businesses reported pain in taxes divided by the corporate profits. That's a better measure of the overall tax for businesses that is much lower and the change that number from the tax code from the TC J was also much lower. Well, and what's so interesting to in? This goes to the politics of this right is what is ultimately behind. A lot of the rhetoric is this idea of people just feel more confident CEOs feel confident because even if the numbers don't bear it out. They just feel like I got a little more money to play with with consumers. This whole notion of animal spirits. That's something I understand a little bit more than all these terms. Right. So how does that play into it? Sure. So if we look at what the model showed us return. To pieces the mattered quite a bit. The first is the output gap. So that's kind of this measure of how far the economy is from neutral. That's a little hard to do because from from potential is hard to do because you can't measure potential and the second was this animal spirits as business confidence. I mattered quite a bit quite a bit more than tax cuts, actually. And so that makes sense if you step back and think about it, right? If you're a CEO and you're thinking, oh, there's demand for my product my existing facilities. Can't meet that demand. Which is what that Alpa gap is supposed to measure, and I feel good about the future of the of of my economic prospects. I'm gonna invest right? So that's the animal spirits component of John Maynard Keynes is brought up and others have brought up and it's similar to the consumer side consumers do something similar, right? The go have more money. Do I feel good about the future or don't feel bad? And you put that in the back, and that's a similar to businesses. It's important to have this discussion. Right. Because as you say the White House comes out with estimates. And said, hey, look, we did this we cut taxes the corporate tax rate businesses are spending and look at what he did to the economy. I think they say like a full percentage point to say, and as you say there. Lots of different estimates out there. So we kind of have to be smart when we hear this stuff. Absolutely. And that's hard because there's so many elements, and because there's these things are so easy to fudge around the margins and the models are all different. But I think the important thing to note the results came out, I wouldn't say to my expectations. We did you know standard scientific theory. Here we test says, but I think when you get these kinds of things if you can find other work that supports those hypotheses as a results, and it's usually like you starting to build a house right out of break. One piece at a time, so TIMMY, he Bloomberg economics. Jason unite love talking to him because we first of all kind of a lesson reminding us about basic economic principles supply side versus demand side and reminding us maybe.

"All right, neck, Spokane Washington, XM satellite. How are you? Hey, good evening, Mark next to talk to you again. Thank you. He look I spent almost twenty nine years in both. I'm gonna Marine Corps in Russia time any army. I will say first and foremost women provide no force multiplier by being an infantry or Rangers special forces et cetera. What does that mean? It means. It means do not add to the combat effectiveness of those types of units effectively. Now, you are sergeant major. So you you you were in a sort of a command structure, correct? He kind of does it. Special talk right into the mouthpiece. Because I'm losing you. The army does it kind of oddball where once you get so highly specialized move up into the leadership e eighty nine Rome, you're taking away from your specialty where you were the biggest asset. And I I appreciate the army decided I was worthy of of being a sergeant major. But that said I was in a very male dominated chills. I was aviation and believe me I took. I took my beatings, the only, female and female aircraft mechanic. I worked on helicopters was the first female in that particular state aviation unit. I was also the first female see twenty three flight engineer in the country. And I worked my way up into actually managing the fight standards program for the enlisted side of the house. But all that said I've watched over the past thirty years. The men in this country. Just absolutely being emasculated to the point where they sit around sipping hot cocoa in their footy pajamas. And and I don't I understand that the military. Secondly, since the fifties, you know, the Korean war when when the military, I integrated blacks into the military, so he had blacks and whites serving in the same unit. They weren't segregated like they were in World War Two. That was a positive social experiment. Now, we're working toward the negative side of the spectrum as far as the military being used social experiment, and that they think that women are qualified. Yes, you may be a strong woman might my daughter of of anybody. I know in that age group, she'll be twenty eight next month. I would say she could hack it. But I wouldn't want her to do that. What about a draft for crying out loud? Well, I I mean, I could see if if they restructured the selective service programs to where when high school seniors, male and female get to that age where they've got to register for the selective service and on a funny side note, my daughter got one when she was in high school, they had her miss gendered. We got that fixed. But I if it was terrible. Yes. Yes. We didn't get her fixed. We got that. No. I understood. But I could see if they actually did take teams going to high school with people that need to register register for the selective service, both male and female give them an onsite evaluation. Okay. Are you physically capable of carrying time motorist seventy pound load and designate just an area that they could serve. And I guarantee you nine percent of the females would not be able to. But that's not what turns me the bureaucracy at the Pentagon and other places even pressure from congress would change the standards. So that they would. And like, I say, I have no problem with these backup positions and so forth. I'm talking about the heavy lifting in combat. Type situation. And I and I suspect the vast majority of husbands fathers agree with me. And the vast majority of mothers agree with me. And I wanna thank you for your service lend that don't get mad at me. I got to roll here. Thank you. Thank you. It's an interesting topic. I don't think a federal judge should be calling all the shots. That's for sure. Pete Fort Bragg, North Carolina. How are you, sir? Remarks. Thank you for taking my call. I appreciate everything you do. And you know, I don't agree a hundred percent with you or anybody else. That's just the nature of yuma's. But I do agree with ninety nine point whatever percent of things, and I gotta support you on this. I commend the young stars. You may young lady just gone for twenty nine years. I only did twenty and then the young lady before her. I kinda understand what she's coming from. And I'm with you nothing against women serving support decisions, you know, even though she's a helicopter aviation mechanic. That's great. I don't think she should be doing that at combat zone and the young lady that was a marine. So you know, the marines are souls year their soldiers I carry a weapon. Well, same thing of the army, your doctor or lawyer, whatever you are the officers carry a nine millimeter or forty five Cal the enlisted. And and many of the most of the shows carry a M, fourteen sixteen whatever it is nowadays. I don't know. And I don't know what percent of the women are. But just sergeants major and the first arches. Jason unites most century forty five or nine mill. And like I said I've been retired fifteen years. So I don't know what percent of the of the military is female now. However, I've had this debate with my twenty two year old daughter and her friends. Rachel is against my face. And I'm not going to go into that right now. But I don't know anywhere where the bible says the woman is supposed to protect a man a man is supposed to protect the woman. I cannot see my daughter going. She expressed an interest at one time. I said Rachel she has five older brothers and a younger sister. Eight hundred thirty year old now is gonna make real soon. Very proud of you now one of his older brothers tried to go in the army, and he's got his bachelor's degree and say in public right now, I'm a serious radio. But he didn't he didn't make it because. He's on his mathematics, or whatever you call that part of the part that battery of adjust. But anyway, I've got nothing against women's services support. But my question to all the ladies out there, if you're that patriot that much of a patriot you wanna serve military, guess what? There are thousands of jobs out there in the military, where do you think all these male soldiers and sailors, airmen, every get their training from they have to have an instructor and a trainer, I would commend a woman. And and they do that now as doctors, and lawyers, you know, all the different aviation mechanics. Your your point is just gonna have to go your point is there are many many positions. In the military that do not require women to be on the front lines and excuse me. And I absolutely agree with you. And I also believe that women should not be part of the draft period. Let alone a judge ordering it. Thank you for your service Pete in for that of your family to let's grab another one before it's too late here. Let us go to Doug, Los Angeles, California, eight seventy the answer the great K R L, go choose me. Hey, mark. Thanks privilege. You got a while ago.

And I said, you know, I'm an attorney myself. I said I'm going to go to the source and do what I can do. I'm going to apply for a master's program. Go back to school get in philosophy or something like that psychology. Whatever they'll take the end, and then take three or four classes, and then not to create a disturbance get thrown out of the class. But to present a well presented argument. Well, thought out counter perspective TV's professors well have to care about my great. If they want to give me a Sierra de or something I deserve a that's fine. But yet.

And we can go into these courses. The point you raise not to sabotage the class, but to provide a counter viewpoint. Exactly. And if we did this by a large number of us, this might be very very interesting. Go right ahead. Yeah. I was gonna say we're legally on campus. I can't those off where students we behave. We don't go in there like militants, and how many of us already have a bachelor's degree. We can go back to a master's program or a doctor program or go to a JC take courses get on their legally be respectful, but right at the point of indoctrinating, throwing the alternative point of view. Just the the only issue would be if people can afford to do this. In other words, take the time off from the professional from other kinds of work and so forth. Well, you know for some of us like myself, I I run my own office. I got hours that can be flexible, but a lot of times these masters programs or the JC jaycees, especially they're inexpensive. They have a lot of night courses. The universities have a letter night courses for the masters and doctor programs, and then we're right there right there on campus. All right. I got it buddy.

But then again, the brand new, I'm at pro shipped with a bunch of USB ports on seventeen contel. Quick story. Yeah. So apple had the I MAC right now, we all know that machine and they got rid of all the legacy ports USB or GTO. Yeah, it was actually the internal marketing hurt. It's not true. But then they had the power. MAC g three similar case like the blue color translucent plastic, and that machine shipped with a single AD port on the back it did and people use it for various things.

So if you were cool kid like me and high school and use cork express for fun, you had to have that thing plugged in. So I think about that. But apple wanted the opposite with the MAC book per right, the the new machine that people like us us to like do a live podcast. We gotta have Dongling new cables. And so this is a time like the past doesn't really give a lot of inside think, except that apple is willing to break these boundaries sometimes. And I won't say what I think about your pick yet.

"jason united" Discussed on The Product Startup: Product development for small business
"User of online based absent Jason United Sas dice products and whatnot. Like I've got a big vision Businesses at Now my vision is is a lot larger than that so I kind of feel like I'm one step ahead each time or each year as a guy. You're in appreciate you sharing. How you differentiated did Your Business? Because I think a lot of people step into it and think that they have to compete on price and in reality. What you're doing is yeah? You were making your business. More accessible by focusing on the online market and people being able to get custom tailored you know furnishings a direct door pretty much I and the also dominated the middle area. Where like you said there wasn't anybody in that space? You either had really expensive products or something on the cheaper end. And that's really something important Horton to know in almost any market is that there's probably going to be gaps that aren't being filled right now and you need to make sure that you're well positioned for that and it's not that you just saw the gaps you you also recognize that your skillset was doing the online stuff that other people weren't doing. Yeah that's right but look having said that they took meanwhile to get to that point to be honest. I when I started. That was the idea that I had biden are how to get they. I didn't know how to get it online. How to make end another big element for me was getting the right business model with this industry? Even though you know you you products very expensive profit. Margins are actually very large so that was something by a sat on for a long time and I tried to strategize around you. Know How can I have a product that is at the right price. But then I'm also going to be a High Greis company. I'm going to be able to make some money. So that was a big challenge and it took till a few different business models before I could get it right. Appreciate you sharing that because I guess that we've had on the show. It make it sound like it's a straight eight line to go from the from the concept to Soudriette realized right And I know that's not the case just personally as an engineer. I know that we interact are designed resigned. Constantly you're constantly. It's almost a guessing check where you're going out there. You're testing the market seeing if it works growing if it does or scaling back if it doesn't and changing pivoting to a different audience and it's almost like you have to do that constantly. It's constant yeah just being able to adapt being able to change range and for me. It's been a lot Abou- passive heiresses. Well you know they would times when your sudden business wouldn't walk. I kept at it and it got to the point where it was like. Look I needed changes or I need to quit and I was just is never prepared to quit. I never quit. Basically in that case the past Characteristic of mine but it's paid off you know knowing knowing when to quit is so difficult because sometimes they answer is that you need to quit. Because maybe you've picked up by a market that saturated or the audience and product. It isn't right so maybe you can talk a little bit about the the business models that you chose. That didn't quite work out. Can you mentioned some of those. And maybe why they didn't work for you show show will initially look my idea was Have ready made high quality product. It's like a lot of the ready made. That are out there. Probably not way your advice here in astrology really tacky shade ready made could and so. I thought you know what I'll have already made product. We've old costume will be spike standards and my idea was just sat. Ah How ever I didn't have the big buyers I didn't have enough buys for that I needed to have some cash flies. Soy I got into custom-made again but then I was sucked into doing it. The traditional way of selling constant made couldn't way you you in visit the clients. She do a free measuring quiet and I did that for about a year in. Just it wasn't working for me like I at the margins in the industry very lar- and unite. I had my son was still a baby. I just. I couldn't do it as mother. It was too difficult. United to what fifty seventy hours a week full very little return and so I went back to my original light. A Year of the ready made out. Mock it vanishing and I thought I hey will how can I do to mate as well and not swin. I decided decided I need to sell custom made online men. I've moved towards doing that online. KABADDI about a year end yet. Light Light Benjamin was just the website. went through about seventy for websites. I'm actually J. to launch a new one again and then getting that right getting old assistance behind it right now. Yeah I know exactly what my business model is in where it needs to sicav right to the header to San sounds like quite a journey. As you've gone through this you know. How have you handled the customer aspect of it and still standing behind your work or providing returns when needed and things like that that must be a challenging aspect of the business as you know beauties of the beholder and someone gets their custom furnishings? They might not feel like it's up to par with what they were expecting even though that's exactly what they ordered yet. Look I actually face a law when customs officials in a traditional way. I would visit the Klein design it for them etcetera now because it's all online it basically the customer feels like they're in control. I helped him along the way I I give them ideas. And I can customize any element they want it's not just a matter of choosing assize in a fabric if they want to add any other element they can do that in I've start thought it doing it that way. I have not had a single complaint in re body loves WHAT THEY GONNA get now. If a customer ease I represent shore we do also scale drawings for them And sketches really get a lot of issues like like the customers that I get now people who want to do it themselves. They don't WanNA design a- and you know they they just feel in control of the whole design prices and it's very satisfying for them but look the biggest challenge for me was finding the supplies those allies. It could work with with ready. made it was. That align was difficult enough because I was so seeing. Aw offshore and finding supplies that could you know do minimum order quantities. That would be flexible in that. All sides could develop the product with the quality standards that I required. It was very difficult. I actually went through about two hundred. Supplies is by even had to teach myself a little bit of Chinese thought. Could get tricky cue. which is a bit like baseball? Bet The Chinese as us. I tried like Indonesian Indian companies and nobody could get the right quality. Eighty four Masar yet. It took a while may define a supplier but until I action found one. That was was happy for me to train them. Sorry I train them through. Video is in like I said initially was fruit. Strapping soit wasn't like I could travel traveled there and talk to as they were just very genuine people who wanted to help. I said look this is my idea. I don't have any in money in. What I'm willing to do? Is is take she end. Thanks of bullet. They provided my inventory. Three off a free of charge for about six months. Sorry I built a very very strong relationship with them and now the next stat. Once I went to cost to made that was another difficult. Poss- I've actually Game on the Gold Coast here Estrella area and that was really good bye kept it very lice Gal. Because I didn't want to spend too much. I didn't WANNA have to charge my my clients even more money for my products. I'm just sort of made it work between international than also making my products likely as well talk about that strategy a little bit. Are you sourcing fabric from one area of the world and dropping your manufacturer and then they're providing a custom custom a drapery for your clients and then sending it to you. So absolutely one of the biggest strategies May to be able to offer a A good price product is for made souls the fabrics direct from the mills. Otherwise it's just basically impossible not I'm doing the same thing. So yeah I mean whilst I try to under promise in either deliver. Generally I do promise promise like.

"Upper midwest and the big ten pretty much misery. And I think that style starting to be lost a little bit with TV and internet where everyone watches each other and plays with each other. What do you think about in terms of soccer? Boy, that's that's a tough question. I'm trying to I'm trying to think because you have an east coaster in Bruce Arena coaching the galaxy. Yeah. So I think oftentimes style is often dictated at least in the mainstream from the highest level that you're watching. So it's hard to say like, I couldn't sit here and be like, oh, you know, the ten teams in southern California really play an expansive aesthetically beautiful. Style football. I just don't know. Yeah. I don't think. So I think it's interesting that both sides kind of have like a ground zero of talent, you know? Of course, it's the LA southern California area for for the west empire. But but here on the east coast. I think it's just west of here in that like jersey, Philly eastern, Pennsylvania or not eastern eastern, Pennsylvania kind of triangle area. And that seems to be where a lot of that elite talent comes out of Florida starting to make a push as well. But that's interesting. I wonder if people that are more embedded in say, like the soccer culture, or like college high school, whatever could answer better. I think one of the things he seeing the college soccer is what you end up with at the end of the year, which is one playing in cold areas at one playing in. So you have different styles. What I think is unique and exciting about molasses. You have that academy system, and you have the potential to keep guys at home, and you have a potential to build a culture where you can say. Hey, look, this is how Philly soccer place and we play for the Phillies. Union rather than other sports where you have to get drafted. So it's tough. And then adapt one to get in. They are probably drafting you for your attributes and your fit. Exactly. So I think that's that's an exciting. Interesting question, if anyone has any a- respond to here's your interesting note that just came through on the wire Jay Vitovich, the head coach of Wake Forest that's east coast. Of course, heading all the way west Portland he will be the head coach at t to yet. So that's an interesting move. That has some implications for both college soccer MLS on the pay attention to. So here we have a question from Brendon from Irvine. And he said he was on Twitter the other day reading, rob Hainan's Cuna. And when asked about if Kansas City would try and site, Stephen Girard. He heard that the New York red bulls had a discovery claim on him. So he's wondering do MLS teams just put out claims on the Messier the Renaldo those Lonzo just in case they end up trying to sign or is there a limited amount where you don't wanna waste and another the hotel bar like super draft like a discovery signing a lot. I think the way it works is that you have a limited number of these. I believe it's ten I could be wrong on that. But you have to be intelligent about how the us though. So if you don't have a shot at landing guy, AK Lio Messi, don't put it discovered. Claim it on him for the red bulls put winning on Jared that tells me that they think that they have a chance you have. Of course, we talked about this on the last show has that relationship. So they probably think there's a possibility here that you know, we could get this guy. And that's how I have to do it. A lot of them. Of course, are people in South America, guys that you don't know probably but ones that the teams have been scouting for a while. And, but if you had the chance to get messy, and you didn't have the discovery Claremont, and you'd be kicking you would certainly real quick before we get out of here.
