"Derek. Down thank you so much for being on room vroom. Barron welcome to the show. How's it going man? It's fantastic. Thank you for having me so you are welcome so tell us a little bit about what you're most excited about. Your Business Today. Some businesses a little weird. It's a niche in the construction industry. There's really kind of hated upon and frowned upon. But here in Nashville we've been able to I guess you'd say scale it so It's called punch work so anytime you buy a house We go through. And you tell the the realtor or the sales agent that you want this this and this fixed and they make a list and then they hand it to the contractor or the seller and. We go do that list. They hand that list to us. And we we basically fix this stuff about five trades also. Yeah so punch. Work is what we do. it's kind of our bread and butter. It's about sixty eight percent of our business. We are however pushing towards We fell into screen enclosures. Back in two thousand eleven and We started doing that. And we're just now. We just now heard of marketing persons. Were super excited about pushing that product. I could've yeah and if you've got a yeah no doubt right. We're in the process of creating a villain for it. Were thinking about Connie Mosquito Joe or something you know him and his band of Vampires. So yeah so. That's kind of exciting marketing stuff and That's fine and there's a new product that we just Kinda came across called quake flashing which is a exterior. You still exterior penetrations with the during the construction process of kind of thing but Basically anytime they puncture a hole outside it could cause a potential leak issue January I had and they created quick vice in created these panels. That have a rubber gasket in you you basically shingle into the house. Wrap and tape it off in a shingle pattern and It seals a-share penetration with with a rubber seal so it expands and contracts with the weather. So we're super excited about where the first turnkey quick installer in the world. Wow so That's pretty exciting. That company's been around for twenty years and so we're kind of on the the really cool rise of that hidden momentum so that company really hasn't hit momentum until you know so hartland. We're catching that on the before the Trans so So yeah that's kind of a society me about what's going on what we've got going on exciting. That's great and your guys are still working even though we are look at corona now no virus is the correct called. The Kuroda Corona no virus. Ally is a comedian Andrew. Somebody who says he has this corona. No no juicy sprays on you. GotTa Cry Honora though The Corona virus is going on in construction. So we're a essential. It's got a nice main Nashville man to be able to draw without getting stuck in traffic. Right tell you man. It's kind of Nice ambience that you but but you know all things considered you know. There's not p There's no meat writes No hand sanitizer gloves right. So yeah man. It's weird Super Weird Mendy. It's a an everyday essential but man a out everywhere. So yeah it's so weird now when you see toilet paper in the story. I think this is like a city thing. So if you're in the boonies like my parents live in like like three hours away from Milwaukee in Upper Michigan yes it is it's FM. Okay the Michigan. Hey there's some beautiful parts of Michigan in Oregon about three times zoo that area or been up to Holland. Saga cut area Michigan fishing up there. Man Yeah and I like being out in the woods. I don't like the fact that it know. It's so far from the airport but you know what are you GonNa do? Yeah is what it is but yeah they have no problems getting toilet paper. They're also run out of toilet paper here in Vegas on the Nashville. Yeah you're in your national. I'm in Vegas but we're both running into this situation where the crazy people are just going out there and buying everything it's like there are people lining up at six o'clock in the morning and get toilet paper. It's not right. And then the pallet comes in the first twenty people have everything in writing. There's nothing left for anybody else. So yeah it's crazy. My wife recently has stumbled upon the secret weapon in Vegas. So don't tell anybody but I'll I'll go ahead and tell you go to places that people don't usually think about to get toilet paper you can get a bit like cvs last of us That's hilarious because I have you know we haven't hit those small places. We kept going to the big places but right down. Yeah it's funny you're in Vegas Craig from Gore. Quick flashing is is in Vegas and he sent me pictures of Vegas House just like a ghost town right now. I'm in yeah. This is just in Vegas January and it's it is it is a ghost town man. It's crazy it's crazy. It's nuts so okay we have to. This is room bear. So that means we have to dig into this whole thing about you being a musician and having a business where you're not really doing that primarily so there's got to be a story there which I lost her. Yeah so where did you grow up? Did you grow up in Nashville? Or did you grow up somewhere else now? Grew up in Mobile Alabama and On the The bay mobile place else Called Donald Parkway so this Dolphin Allen Parkway and Grew up on the parkway and then going into eleventh grade mom Met A guy and moved us four and a half hours north to a small town outside of Tupelo Mississippi called Baldwin Mississippi and lived there for ten years before he moved to Nashville. Okay so so yeah all right so all around the South Alabama south man all around. That's it you're Kinda like well let's see here. I said a Mutt. I'm in Panama City. Florida Tyndall Air Force Base. That's the closest that I got to Gulf coast. I was yeah. I had family on Kiesler airforce base base. Yeah I did I did about six or seven weeks in Air Force Tech School at Keystone. Okay Yeah Cool. Yeah and what is that other? There's a there's a funny sounding there's another city around there. That always makes me laugh. I can't remember no that's not at the end. There's wave land blogs Gulfport Ocean Springs Pascagoula. Pascagoula was have you ever heard of a place called. We gotta we were his Tonka That's good it's an Alabama. All right so yeah. I love that area. That whole like. There's just so many things to do like Panama City we would go to. We went to Atlanta quite a bit. Because you're only four hours from Atlanta. We went to non ORLANDS A lot. Because you know that's just I would never want to go there for Mardi Gras but like any other given weekend was a great party. You know not a girl. Speaking of moderate originated mobile and man. They're they're monographs is a lot more contained. It is a party but it's not like a crazy party. I mean it is a party but You know it's a little bit more family oriented then the New Orleans is of course. I've never been New Orleans so I can't really say I don't know it's fun on a regular old any gibbons soon Friday night on Bourbon. Street is a black right right. Yeah is amazing. No doubt yeah so okay so you grow up and are in so. When did you start playing music? I A actually live with my dad in Fort Worth Texas for one year and at the end of your mom and my step dad had tried to get me guitar lessons before that And just what? They were trying to keep me songs. Achey hard and in all this as wouldn't have in it so I never practiced anything like that. So yeah so then. I went to Alabama Dad for year end that year. That of my dad at the end of the school year in eighth grade they had a talent show. Of course I never heard anything about the talent show. Could I enter anything? Of course I didn't have anything to intern. Talent that about it that trump that point but there was these two bands van and they played one played. Smells like Teen Spirit by Nevada and the played zero by the smashing pumpkins. Okay and I was like drawn. Jake did that crowd when absolutely beserk and I think that's what really I wanted us. I WANNA make a crowd go beserk like that. It's amazing do is absolutely amazing so I pulled that little guitar that my mom had had and it was my great grandfather guitar apple that little thing out me on a books online like low guitar sheets online trying to have a little want to man man. I forget this. I'm learning how to do that. I want that reaction. I want to own a feel that good you know. Yeah I get in so for sure. So so a starter. Plan that eighth grade year than we moved back to mobile with my mom and that ninth grade year in a buddy of mine had been picking up guitar to that summer and Christmas that for Christmas. We got guitars up. We both got guitars for Christmas. And we started playing. We played at the talent show. We entered got got accepted. And I'm Tony Man.

"Terms of operations where we're global And so for me. You know a good chunk of what I do is related to technology because technology has a place you know from the initial customer experience ordered a cache procure to pay record to report so that plays a big piece and that's the the people and the process and the tech strategy goes with that but then there's overall financial operations and shared services for. How do we support our line of business segments when when they conduct their business and and how can we run those kind of back office functions a lot more efficiently and in the right locations with the right skills and it's really you know the the guts it's the engine room You know that enabled us to go out and attract business and and you know executed efficiently. That's really my my core role and can you talk a bit about the form that digital transformation takes an organization like yours. I mentioned a moment ago. That said clearly part of what excited the executive team about your abilities in in bringing you on board talk a bit about the formats taken across the now as I say to. Nearly two and a half years so that you've been enroll it's quite pervasive because the digital transformation is everything from the systems and technology that allow you from the very beginning of you know just doing looking at the opportunity. So that's in your your crm systems. It's in your data systems that allow you to you. Know Ingest customer and supplier information that's in portal strategies its self service increasingly because a lot of our supply base is third party it's creating API's and more of an ecosystem to allow different participants to play without having to make it so complex and and build Point to point integrations or do it manually. So in one sense that's one piece of the digital transformation on the other it really is around the efficiency and and in using robotics Cr and different Technologies so that every piece of data that comes and hopefully we can bring in digitally. We could process it. Digitally we can analyze it did Chile and make more sense out of all the data that we're collecting. You know to make better business decisions and and that can be in in pricing. We buy an awful lot. You know we're buying and selling you know. Forty billion dollars worth of energy in one way shape or form and it doesn't take you know a you know a bit of an intelligence we can use that data you know. Apply some a and machine learning to a can. We actually improved you know our operating margins but also improve the experience back to the customer so that it really it entails everything from the very very beginning from opportunity all the way back to you know how we close the books and do our our analytics on the back yet. No doubt a lot of what you just described Were things that either were in nascent forms or perhaps in some cases were were already up and running. I'm curious when you join the organization. How much change was necessary. wraps the changes continuing in order to realize the vision of what you just described. I think one thing I learned Who wore wounds pass rules and stuff as well as your strategy and tactics have to manage the town? That's you have on the pitch so if you WanNa you know you want to move to the cloud aggressively and use and use digital technologies You know you have to have the skills to do that. So a good chunk of my very first year was really taking a look. You know from the bottom up you know what our core skills. We need. How those roll up into roles? How do we create an Agile Organization? We did something quite different that I experienced And my last couple jobs as well as rather than doing an orange strategy top down. Go from the bottom up. Look at what work needs to be done. What's do that? Well and apply more of spotify model of grouping people into small self directed teams that are kind of loosely coupled tightly aligned into tribes tribes into a domain so that you run a leaner management structure unless levels. But in order to do that. You've gotTa have the talent to bring that in so we went on. You know you know really strong. Assessment training bringing new skills in and I would say over the last two years. We've turned over You know about a third of our workforce you know you needed that amount of replenishment to bring the skill base up because there is no You know there's no compression algorithm for experience. You need to have done it before so we needed to bring people in that. Could you know others could could learn from at an accelerated pace and pick the right partners and ride their way? And so I think that's the other key strategy of being ready as you know you're only as good as the people you surround yourself with sweets that you have ever principles. It's pick our partners based on the company I product second. Because your company's you leading indicator your product features you're lagging we spent. The first year was an awful lot from you. Know who we need at the executive level. What kind of practitioners do we need? What kind of special skills and analytics and digital and cloud and and replenishing to the point that we could execute strategy that we really want to really like that pick people based on company I products second for the reasons you articulated as you thought about the people that were the worst of this replenishment the replacement of the third. Or so of folks who changed over. How important was experiencing the type of work that you foresaw as important or more or less important than experience in the industry. You need that you need experience in the industry and we had a a decent amount of that but it variance in the the technologies and how to solve problems in different ways. You need a mesh need this kind of diversity of thought in any great organization and and that's in addition to gender and race so you need the industry piece but my piece my history experience would tell me that attitude is is more important than an aptitudes you need to create the right culture and and people have a much larger capacity to learn then they get themselves credit for but you have to have the right people to create the right environment and then set high expectations and the better people will come up to speed more quickly that we have a capacity to learn whether it's a business domain or technology domain far greater than we think and but you have to have enough congestion of talent and leadership. You know just to enable that to happen they have very interesting indeed. I'm also curious. You talked about the need to build a better set of partners a broader ecosystem. My Word Not Yours but how on translating what you were describing who curious what sorts of changes you made from that perspective as well. Clearly you've been thinking about the mix of people the internal as well as extra. What sorts of changes did you make as a result of that analysis? Why think on the on the partner side we had a few business objectives and I think this is probably the other thing at least good advice for. Cio's that went to you. Know take on other broader business roles look at it in terms of what's the business objectives and the business outcome. You Really WanNa get in one of the things that we needed to do. To connect people across the world in a more effective way was to create a strong productive environment for them so that they could collaborate and learn from each other at a faster pace so we looked at. Who are the best companies in collaboration? And we're GonNa make you know hard. I would call student body right. Turns and get on those companies because we knew that in addition to the products they sold we could learn different things from them so three companies. We used in what I would call. The employee. Collaboration environment were box. Zoom in slack and their three. You know great run companies. They've got they've run it's interesting. They run similar management systems with okay ours which are from John. Dora and how you do a objectives and key results and you know box for content management zoom or video and PBX and communications And then slack for collaboration and all three of those companies have helped us Outside yes their technology is in use utilize them for the problems they've solved we've looked at their leadership techniques If you take a look at zoom one of the top rated companies to work for actually all three of them are looked at their leadership techniques. We looked at their engineering practices at at box. We sit on their advisory boards to to you know. I think one of our other key principles. Both parties should benefit outside the commercial relationship. And so we use those which. Reiki changes. I'd say in the collaboration environment and the we had a very big goal to Closed down our data centers and Migrate Everything to the Cloud. So we partnered with. Aws than they try. They train onsite even help us recruit at universities. When we're looking at undergraduate hires and really help us become better company. By looking at some of the things that they do in their leadership system and And even how? The recruiting practices things like that. So those are four partners that we have gotten measurably better at a faster taste because we were relying on your good skills internally but also hiring what's needed but also partnering with the People that are measurably better than the ones we

The Movement Lifestyle with Valerie Beichner, Executive Director, Venture Outdoors

"I think our first question. We always ask and for people that we've we've asked this before but we'll just kind of cover a little bit of your background. Pittsburgh native if not why are you in Pittsburgh? I am not a Pittsburgh native actually I. I moved to Pittsburg in two thousand four out of college to work for channel. Eleven News. Boomeranged around for a little while and came back in two thousand eight to start my career in environmental nonprofits. And I know when we first met you you were friends of the riverfront the executive director there and I think one of the things that really struck me. I've mentioned you not by name but by description. A number of podcasts interviews. I've had is. You are not a lifetime mover and I think the neat thing for anybody who's looking at being more active is really finding movement and being active. Both alone with your family has really changed your life. Yeah absolutely I was just having this conversation earlier today with a colleague of mine being from Rural Pennsylvania. People assume that you're always outdoors and they are always moving in. That wasn't actually my childhood experience. I did not start to move and start to enjoy my relationship with the outdoors and my relationship with physical activity until around two thousand fourteen. I am as I've stated in the past a former to pack a day smoker and junk food self-proclaimed junk food addict All of that changed in two thousand fourteen when my husband and I undertook our very first five K. Ever the Susan G Komen Five K. That year and just really became addicted to running eventually running from Washington D. C. to Pittsburgh as part of a two man relay for my oldest child's our fundraiser for the Pittsburgh Children's Hospital. Now I'm a self-proclaimed ultra marathoner and I actually just locked in my very first ultra coach to undertake my first one hundred miler next year very cool. Which one hundred miler is that Oil Creek? Somebody we've interviewed in. The past has talked about that and. I'm whoever you are. I think it's either Jim. Skull or Jeff Smith up in slippery. Rock has talked about that. So whichever one of you I missed I apologize for that. What I thought was most interesting when we first talked to you about that Relay run from Washington. Dc to Pittsburgh is not the fact that you each flip flopped off and ran about a half marathon or a little more a little less each day but once you've finished running you then had to be the mother or the father to your four children so you can just stop relaxed and say okay. I'm done for the day. Yeah we took all four of our children with us on that adventure. We spent eleven days. Basically hopping each other about fifteen to eighteen miles a day so my husband would run Fifteen to eighteen miles in the morning I would have the children and then we would meet him and pick him up and he would take the kids and I would run my fifteen to eighteen. He would meet me the kids when an US would all do a one mile family fun run and go have dinner and do it all over again the next day for three hundred and thirty five miles very impressive and I think I told you in our last interview you've mentioned. I don't really consider myself an athlete. I said yes if you do that. You are at athlete. Not Maybe not so much. The relay run but definitely taking care of four kids afterwards. Because I know how active kids can be. I think it's really important for people to listen because there's kind of always a division of four groups people who can't imagine life without exercising people who don't understand why why somebody would want to exercise and people who go. Yeah I wish I could exercise. So in twenty fourteen. What was the impetus for? You said you know I wanNA run a five k because as a junk food person indefinitely as a former to pack a day smoker. I've only I've seen two people in my life. One individual run a five K. And he finished and ran to his car grabbed a pack of cigarettes and lit up a cigarette which was kind of shocked with and then when I lived in Atlanta. I used to ride with a guy who was retired military and he was either co pilot or a pilot for one of the major airlines and he would kick my butt on very very hilly rides and then pull up to his car and light a cigarette so those are two people who've done endurance athletes who were smokers. I got in touch with either of them. What was it as a two pack? A day smoker. So you know I'm GONNA run a five K. So I quit smoking in two thousand eleven and I think that was the first step towards my health and wellness journey and I quit smoking because I was pregnant and just didn't go back to it. Fortunately after that pregnancy but it was really one of the hardest things I ever had to do right cold Turkey and because I had to fight so hard to not be a smoker. I didn't ever want to go back to that. It take a long time by the way before I stopped thinking about smoking to this day every now and again I think about it but but in two thousand fourteen. It really was okay. We have four kids. We live a completely sedentary lifestyle and we put on a lot of weight right like things have just gotten out of control. I'm no longer in my twenties. I can't just eat whatever I want and call it fine. The pounds are starting to pack on. We have poor health history in my family. And I've really in the last ten to twenty years watched my mother's health significantly declined and I didn't want to follow in the same footsteps so we just started running because it was cheap and it was easy and I had a a pair of sneakers. Some jogging pants right And then we quickly realize this isn't gonNA stick if we don't set a goal so we set the five K. Goal and that five K in the moment was so difficult so hard to train for and it was so hard to undertake that first three point one miles but when we had that finish line and we realize what we achieved and that euphoric feeling of having done something. I never thought I could do was in itself really addictive and we went from five ks to jumped up to ten miler. We jumped up to the half marathon on it's just continued to climb from there So it's been. It's been really fast journey. It's been really shocking. This isn't somebody. I thought that I would ever grow to be but I'm so glad that I did. I'm so glad that I have this relationship and now really I just WanNa bring this feeling to so many other people who in this moment are the person who I'm sitting at home and I don't think that I could ever be that person and now defunct the joy of crossing the finish. Line the fact that you get to add another t shirt your collection. I lecture my husband constantly about his abuse of free t shirts wearing them every day. I always say it's the addiction to a metal and a medic at the finish line. That does something for me. It's definitely the metals. We have a wall of metals in our kitchen to help keep us motivated so we just bought a long curtain rod and we just started putting our medals on it and the really fun part is now my eight year. Old Son has really blossomed into a runner and his curtain. Rod is right under ours with all of his little metal hanging. So we're watching him. Collect with us. I'm going to stand in support of your husband of the t shirts the useful when I defended my dissertation and were a collared shirt. I had a number of people. Come up to me and tell me. They didn't know that I owned a shirt without writing on it. Nice

Get ready to remove room beer with your differently traveled road chauffeur jeff smith smith lever. Thank you so much for being on room beer and welcome to the show. How's it going. It's great. It's great. I'm glad to be here. Thank you for being here again. So you are at torch is so talk a little bit about what you've got going on over there at tortuga that you're most excited about today. Yeah we <hes>. We have a lot of fun at company. <hes> we kinda to make a long story short we provide <hes> machine learning enablement and and they i- technologies to big fortune one thousand companies and the federal government. We have a lot of fun doing it. It's a it's been a venture. I bet so i checked out your one cheat in the first the thing that jumped out at me as you're working with the department of defense and you're helping them automate the security clearance process so yeah having a security clearance myself for like twenty plus years. Thank you yeah the process it is. It's certainly an important mission and and it's been in the news quite a bit the last couple of years back you know the obama administration. There was a big half that occurred <hes> really kinda prom prompted everybody to really focus a little more heavily on this this <hes> this challenge that we have but now you've got <hes> really a combination the nation of of factors <hes> you know the the the actual security focus <hes> around this particular topic is heightened. <hes> certainly there's a workflow issue where there's a backlog of folks <hes> that we need to get out in the <hes> in the mission space <hes> with the appropriate clearances and we need more efficiently move through those right at the same time protecting protecting the country so it's a it's a challenge <hes>. It's a very important mission and we're you know we've you've got an awesome team. The government has an incredible team around them and and <hes> it's been it's been an honor and anna challenge but it's been good yeah i can say like i'm pretty sure it was in the beginning a very manual process with you know just people going out doing interviews with their badge they sit down and they take a bunch of notes and then they go back and type those in you know and i think just depending on and how you like your very first clearance back in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. I'm aging myself there. I think more than six months for for my i clearance to come through and then it took longer than any fast for you you. You obviously haven't done to many questionable okay. I'm proud. I think i was just too young. I it's funny is is the kind of the joke when we talk about. This has nothing to do with the clearance necessarily kind of the joke in the beltway battlespace you know we're trying to recruit kids for some of these important missions missions as quickly as we can out of school yet as you get them before they make their mistakes. You know nice. It's <hes> it's it's <hes> but yeah yeah it's it's so it's good to hear that you you breeze through at least the initial stage so i have a funny and embarrassing story that that goes along with my first security eighty clearance. If you wanna hear it because i would actually love so okay. The recruiter okay says to may all right so it's okay for you to admit on your security clearance paperwork that you've used marijuana. We just have to get the story straight right because you know your your kid and people understand you're going to experiment with these things you just have to document it right and i said okay so okay so then we came up with this thing right where we said the same thing over and over and over again was i did marijuana. I wanted to two times from this year this state to this day as an experimental or something and he said that'll pass. You'll be golden and i went. Oh by the way i oh by the way i did do hash hash one time right and the word no. I'm sure you've art you started with. You started with the good part right. You've already kind of you know. Let the tension out of out of the story because everybody knows now that you already got cleared so you protected yourself so now so you say you. I'm good. I'm good. I've freely admitted that i did get cleared but the funny thing is is he and i had this discussion russian right and he and he just vary officially says oh hash marijuana's the same thing. You don't need to mention the hash and i went okay. You're yeah right. Yes so now you know where the story is going so flash forward. I'm in japan at six or eight months later or whatever it is and now how might clarence has come through and the air force o._s. I is calling me to their office and before they before they talked to me they make me they read me my rights and they have me take off my uniform blouse and take a picture of me a polaroid in just a t-shirt okay so this is setting the stage to scare the fuck it scare the hell out of them and they proceed to good cop bad cop the fact that i did hash one time out of me and so i finally admit it. I'm just trying to figure out why they're grilling main right and they went. Yes you should've told us was that you did hash one time. I did go talk to this recruiter. He said the same thing yes and they said it's not and i'm like okay so we'll amend the the statement to say and ashwin any. It's a big deal it is. I mean <music> as you know. I don't know if you've ever been poly but the when you take a polygraph. That's the that's the key thing is <hes> you know it is a you know there is isn't zero latitude <hes> if you're not honest and it it you know the dock that you fill out when you first apply for your government clearance. It's an our program actually supports the entire federal government all federal es and right and you all kinds of agencies right. It's the dod has the responsibility for this program but it's a it's it's vast yes sir so so the key thing there is <hes> you have to be one hundred percent truthful truthful and this is a hundred and sixty page document <hes> need your talent credible fidelity yeah and and and i think you're probably right. I mean when you look back on it not to not to you know provide too much a- editorial around around but you know thirty thirty forty years ago you had you know really really great <hes> traded draft around and investigations and because of the volume of this the workflow has has changed and the the information or knowledge worker. <hes> you know has has evolved so there's just a lot more people. There's a lot more requirements wants. There's a lot more data flowing around. It really creates a really tough problem <hes> for for this this workforce of incredibly talented people <hes> <hes> but at the same time again that trade crap is not the same as it used to be and so that's where when you think about this proliferation of data not just not just the volume of data edinburgh data sources that are available and the fact that you've got <hes> you know kind of interesting characters that are <hes> trying to steal intellectual actual property <hes> threatening you know various at various levels. <hes> really do need to have a system technology. <hes> machine enabled technology that scales right under the hood this thing so that that's that's the the real big thing. That's why i applied machine learning to this particular. Their challenges is made use case to evolve it. Yeah i mean it's a huge problem so it's a perfect used case because it takes it's it's so laborious for for anybody i mean even with the machines helping it's still going to be a lot of work to do a clearance and there's so many yeah so oh so good on you for helping out with that problem and and gay at least the sky nets doing something worthwhile when you when you go through the clearance process i mean it's you know. This is the one thing i need to say for. You know right up front. What is that that <hes> you know what in the government and i will tell you <hes> with every agency we work for. Everyone is incredibly sensitive. <hes> <hes> you know with the the concept of making sure that the privacy <hes> american citizens is absolutely protected. Yes when you submit that one hundred sixty page document you're you're letting the government and asking the rental look at medical records records financial records and all that other so record everything yeah but i mean it's. I think that you know sometimes the i think the one thing that makes our country great is is the fact that we have privacy and we have you know some of these these protections and and that is something absolutely that's i i can. I can assure everybody that i'm at at every level that we at least interact with <hes> our customers and and some of these these folks are incredibly sensitive to that and it it it. It's a good thing as a as a twenty year air force vet i can say there's there's no more sensitive unclassified information mation as privacy act information. I know that i mean everything in the air force's f. o. Right for official use only you can't even have like a piece of paper lying around that doesn't have f oh you owe on it but privacy at okay so we need a special drawer for that right so yeah you're right and it's it's a good thing so and we have that right right right of privacy. The privacy act of nineteen seventy four amazing amazing law right so good on us yay u._s._a. U._s._a. and more and more even unclassified information is being moved into the secret bucket yeah two years to complete to protect the and it's again. I think it's very positive evolution so anyway <hes> yes. It's a good digression so don't worry about yes so let's let this room from various of that means. We have to go back in time and talk about brian weaver say like in high school but you know so. Where did you grow up. Did you grow up so my father was <hes> an army intelligence officer. Sir pretty accomplished guy and did some really cool stuff. He was an aviator in the u._s. Army and flew helicopters early and then ended up flying a spy plane for the the army called the mohawk and it basically took pictures all over the place and they did all kinds.

"Things that you posted if that makes yeah so that's the reason I like facebook. Is that if you if you understand like how facebook works you can really cultivate a lot of that content specific to the people that are following a lot of your stuff <hes> so I don't really post. There's a lot of personal stuff on there anymore. <hes> sometimes I will end like you know if I'm on vacation or something or out on a date or something with my wife then up or something like that every once in a while but most of the time it's I keep it very very very positive <hes> so that people know what to expect one day see post from me in their newsfeed now that makes sense yeah and I know that you're very much into the group kind of situation yet yeah yeah and that that that actually leads perfectly into that because that's that's one reason I like facebook groups <hes> because you do a lot of the same practices but you can you can choose groups to be a part of that are specifically pointed to the area. You like to talk talk about a lot so I'm in a couple <hes> I'm in one or two podcasting groups. I'm in one or two sales groups in one or two entrepreneurial groups <hes>. I'd try to keep it under five that I'm really actually involved in <hes> because I think that again it's a long term game aim to get in there when you get into a facebook group and you think that <hes> you can go in there and then post one link to your website and because the group has sixty thousand people you're gonNA YOU'RE GONNA get sixty thousand people visiting your website. That's not how it works. <hes> the algorithms are the same in facebook groups as as they are in non-regular facebook so if you don't go into that group and become actively engaged and <hes> and <hes> <hes> a a good member of that group Brand Algorithms Not GonNa show anybody anything that you post as you didn't put in the work who it it earned. It's almost like the exposure on your post in their life engaging apple commenting on people's stuff asking questions and stuff like that then you're never going to <hes> received engagement on your post that you that you want which is why I recommend to keep it under five groups five groups and under because you're fifteen or twenty groups it's just impossible in unless unless unless one hundred percent of your marketing and sales come from facebook groups which nude I know some people that do that <hes> then it's impossible to spend fifteen to spend a proper amount of time to be actively engaged in fifteen to twenty groups on a weekly basis just you you'd be spending thirty hours facebook groups and like I said if you're making money doing that then great keep doing that but for most people that have a lot of different ways. As an strategies to get business <hes> you know four or five groups is the Max. You can't spend a lot of time in in other groups like that so <hes> spend time in those groups get to know people because you can. I it's unique because you you've you're literally in a group. We're a bunch of people have joined because they enjoy that topic just like you do so it gives you a different perspective whereas like you're saying like I don't WanNa cut in my newsfeed with my friends and family because they don't care about what I'm doing business. They're all fine work and their nine to five and they don't care if they've seen motivational post you know they're just going to skip it. Finding keep your facebook personal profile for for personal family stuff and you know whatever you WanNa do share a funny meme or two or post some sports clip or whatever you want to do with that but go be actively engaged in four or five facebook groups groups and and <hes> spend time in there on a daily basis comment on other people's things once you're in those groups for a week or two post a question on questions. I always get the most engagement. If you put a couple of movies in there. You'll also get higher engagement. All this stuff is covered in in my book. If you you WANNA learn more about how to get better engagement on your facebook groups <hes> go download the book it's at build your network dot co forward slash F B F facebook forward slash F. B.. There's my e book there you download it and read about all this other stuff. I'm talking about just more in detail will <hes> but it's a great way to get to know people on one year when you're in a group and people see your name all of a sudden coming up every once in a while and they start liking your stuff now you can friend them on facebook then they go over to your personal profile. They see what you're doing is start following your stuff on your personal profile. It's just a really good facebook. Groups are very under utilized but really good way to get to know people and build relationships online. Yeah I learned a lot about the power and value of the facebook group when I joined podcasters paradise because they've got sort of like a written unwritten. I'm not sure if it's written or unwritten but there's kind of a rule in there where they want you to answer questions before you ask questions because people there's like a ton of people and podcasters paradise is and all the newbies WanNa know how to make podcast right so it's super easy I mean if you're a podcast or and you've been at it for a while. You can easily spend an hour just answering questions right right and people really dig that yeah and what it does to it sets you apart almost as an authority figure in the space too so those people that are just getting started when they see Ohau Jeff Smith he's. He's run this podcast for a couple of years now. Let's really impressive. Most people are GonNa make it a month so I mean he must know about podcasting. I'm afraid of them and then go look at his stuff and then here's a link to his podcast to check that out. I'll hit the subscribe button. You know what I mean. You don't know what can come from just giving to other people and facebook groups are great a great way to to make sure that that happens and the other thing I've learned is that people are more. What's the Word Open? Maybe <hes> in a group because it's it's kind of like an isolated group whereas has like in the rest of facebook. They're a little bit more closed off and they're going to they're. It's not it's less. They're less M- intimate right right integrate rupe people share stuff. Maybe they shouldn't didn't but you know they really go. Deep you know and so that means the engagements are sort of at a different level yeah and more genuine Virginia for sure for sure see that was a one one of your big chapters chapters right and this was what you were just talking about was an extension of your be genuine chapter in your e boom. was you know don't pretend to be a member right. Exactly a lot of people do that. They'll be like well facebook. Algorithm will will will measure that I go in like people's posts so they go in the facebook group and they go like scroll like scroll likes grow lights and then what happens when they posted a post and then they don't get any lights man what happened. I thought that you know I would get good engagement because I was liking other. People's stuff facebook understands when you scroll pass something and when you look pass something so if you're if you're if you're going through growing Mike is growing just to get better engagement physical actually detect that and they'll send you notification and be like hey you can't like posts for like another two hours or some sort of time period. You're not reading any of them. facebook knows knows when you're doing stuff like that so stop doing stuff like that and stop trying people just are always looking for shortcuts jazz like what he wants to know the shortcut and how to do it the quick way and <hes> and beat the system but true true genuine caring for what people have going on. There's no way to beat that system. You just gotTa do it. Just be genuine and helpful and just try to think about hey if I posted this. If I posted this question what kind of feedback feedback what I want to be getting from that and impose something that would be that would be like that I mean the golden rule is still stood the test of time so <hes> don't forget about that and be genuine with people for sure for sure. This has been a blast man so okay. You've we've shared a lot <hes> we're gonNA wrap soon so you are at Bilger Network Dot Co Dot Com but oh so I will give you the last word what what do you want to leave my audience with Com. We've hit on it a little bit today and I always hesitated the end because I get asked that question a lot. You know one partying piece of advice and I just think that that's I'm gonNA stick with. I'm GONNA stick with the underlying theme of this whole interview view and go with think long term and I WANNA take a second to pound that in even more because <hes> just to <hes> I think people here that it just goes one ear out the other because it's kind of cliche you know think long term long term and I just kind of like a yeah understand Dan. I understand I understand but I need to make money now. You know and I understand that but you have to have a plan for the long term so for instance. I have a different business besides my podcast. I'm a dealer for a water machine company water machine manufacturer so whole-home water filtrations water softeners <hes> under counter units in and stuff like that and that's how I make money right now. I gotta pay the Bills Right. The podcast has not made any money at this point <hes>. I've put a lot of time and money and effort into it. I've I've traveled to Puerto Rico to meet with Jami. Do Mr Talk about it. I spent a lot of a lot of time doing that but I know the runway is a very long time to hit revenue to hit good revenue with it <hes> but it's just a long term play and if you don't have something that you're working on right now that is a long term play one hundred percent that you can look in the future and say this is where I want this to be in ten years from now. It may not benefit me a lot right now. I made have enough to eat dirt for the next two years but one day it's going going to benefit me a lot and I know that it will then. I suggest getting something like that. If you don't have one already do something like that for me. It's the podcast I just I just know that building good relationships with people but the people have been able to while doing this podcast <hes> will in the long run benefit me more than <hes> almost anything else that I could spend my time working on right now and so while I have my short term while I while I while I well I do have to pay my bills. I know that the podcast is going to be something that in the long term just has it's much more benefits that I could even imagine right now so that would be the that would be my partying piece of guidance there Jeff and I think I'm with you on that because I think the you know the podcast in and of itself has value so even if you're not getting money out of it you're learning so much from each one of your guests right and you're and you're making connections in your providing value so you know yeah.

"I mean, the Jeff Smith dot com is probably also taken or the real right? Not real Jeff some of the what was it? The frugal gourmet is the most famous Jeff Smith and you've probably never heard of them. But. Yeah. That's why all Jeff Smith's that have any sort of like presence have some other name. Otherwise, you'll get lost in all the other Jeff Smits. It's amazing being Jeff Smith. I would never wanna be anything other than Jeff Smith. But it's, it's just something you have to live with and deal with. It's all good. It's all, yeah. Hey. So I wanted to ask was there a moment when you had this, like, like I said, like. I'm hiding, you know that, that sort of like awareness moment where you said like I've got to stop hiding when did that happen. And what did that feel like or was it more gradual? No, I have currently I have two children. I have an almost six year old daughter and a four year old son. I give shout outs to as often as possible, because Jeff, they're the reason. They're the reason I'm here today so so early on early on in their already young lives. I realized I see what's happening here. I'm the child in this scenario. Right. I, why am I? Yeah. And they were quick to point that out in verbal and nonverbal ways. And the way they looked at me, and I'm like, okay, you know, I just can't be this, this angry breast this needy the last thing I wanted to do was I, I started projecting myself. Oh, we're twenty years down the road. And when my children are now out of the house, and I've raised them. Let's say in that world, and let's take my daughter, for example. She saw her father in that vibe seeking approval just doing all this stuff. And now, she has the same, you know where she seeking approval I couldn't I couldn't I wouldn't be able to live with myself if that would have been the case, and at that point in time, there would have been nothing. I can do to change it. And all of the all of the cards on the table said I gotta change things. Now, if I want any any hopeful future for myself, and to be the best father that I possibly can so all things combined. I said, you know what for certainly for for you guys. At least I got I want to be the best father. I possibly could be in. That means owning everything that I am and really just coming to the table and making that work and I made that committee. A year ago, July eleventh two thousand eighteen nice happens to be. That's when I went with my very first episode. I launched my brand, and I came live with my first episode. It's also really by no accident. My father's birthday who continues to be an extraordinary inspiration for all. I'm doing so it all just ties in keeps me on the right path saying there was no looking back. I'm the hidden entrepreneur. I can't hide. I can't be stopped by the year and. And always. Now, we're getting into a whole new episode of you. Not knowing. You get it. That's amazing. So congratulations. You know, and I wanted to say I you know, you may have I have this sneaking suspicion that you may have a clue. So do yourself onto the mystical path of enlightenment as they say in the semi. Which means what does. Well, I think you're realizing that there is a true, you and there is a false, you and you've always been your true, you and you've always thought you were your false, you, correct. And now you may not be one hundred percent the true you. But at least you're on the path that try to work on it a little bit every day. Own. That's what I might. When I say, you may have stumbled upon the mystical path of finding your true self you may or maybe you did. Maybe it's not a question. Maybe you just know that. Well, it's all yes. And it's all it's all an evolution. I'm not saying you're going to ever get there. But just being just no just having the awareness that there is a true that you want to be more of every day. That's as close as you can get. Every every good. Mystic. Mystical student will tell you that all you gotta do is walk the path, and try to be true, it every day. And that's yeah. That is that is. And if people watching and or listening to me in anything I do see something and say, I got it. I can do that great. Then then that's the win. I am in. This has been a blasted. I agree agree. Sorry if we went to long. I don't know what I you. Okay. Good. Good. No. We actually didn't go long enough. We didn't really we do it again. We went we went as long as it needed to be. We've said it all as Howard Stern would say, we've set at all. We've said it all Intel until next time we've said it all. All right. And you are. Good. I appreciate it. Jeff. Thank you so much. You're amazing. You know, we could hang out and be friends, and then we'd hate each other, and then we could hang out and be friends. And then we'd hey I think this is this would be the path if we were buddies it would be like you suck. You saw you. You. While I do I did hint at the idea that I absolutely love Vegas. But again, my Vegas is the strip grandma, if you come to biggest let me show, you red rock because they can get in free with my, my disabled, veterans card. So if you come.

"Okay. So you don't necessarily have to change the world. You just have to. You don't have to do anything earth shattering, you just have to do you really I think is just have to be you. And just like I my mission in life is to be Jeff Smith. The best. I can Jeff Smith like Jeff Smith is a verb. Right. I want to be the best Jeff Smith. So it doesn't I don't need to change the world. I just need to change me right anyway. That's I'll get my soapbox now. I hope that, that's one of the things that people get a take away from, from, from the show, and I would say, it would take it a little bit further is that you can change the world by being the best version of you. It's small overtime that Ashley accrue, and that make big impact. Right. And we, we look at it from personal finance and investing. If you look at the large wealth graders in this country, whether it's real estate or slowly investing in diversifying your portfolio, and it's not an overnight thing. It's not like you'll invest in tomorrow, he'll get all the wealth but it's over time that cruise and does Bill generational wealth. And I think that's definitely one thing I want to get into this into this episode as well kind of my realization of that in how that played a role in ten of my me being on the show in the in the first place, you know, being able to talk to you and one thing that you said quickly, you said, you want to just be the best Jeff Smith. And an look at look at what you've created you have this podcast, medium that reaches. So many people. So the best Jeff Smith is already making such a big impact in an I would say is already the world by having meaningful conversations that people that you don't even know that are listening to you in, June into you so over. That's one thing that people get away from the show. I think you're right. I agree. So I don't wanna say disagree. I think it's a mindset different. It's not really ineffective prince. So I look at this like. If I take the mindset of I want world peace, right? Like every beauty pageant contestant ever. Piece. Right. We all just started chuckled just like you did. Right. But if I say, I'm I'm making a very important piece of my life personal pace that sounds to me and my brain every part of that thing is possible. I know I can create peace in me right now. How how that translates is. If everyone in the world focuses on personal piece it's possible for everyone and therefore we get the thing that we want. But if we if I come at it like saying, I want world peace. I don't believe that's possible. You see what I'm saying is that make sense, is that thing totally totally adopted mindset, you will look for the solutions that you're trying to get you end up not yet does the Laffy guide. But the thing. Exactly right. Exactly. But, but you'll look internally, and that's really about expense. Answer is right. Right. And so that's what I was started off with, like an like you kind of, mentioned, as you look at the solutions internally within you. Like what contribution can you make? Right. Instead of looking and asking and feeling change the world. No. No. No, no, no. Yeah. How? Right. Right. One hundred percent. Yeah, the internal external kind of thing. It's okay. So this is room broom Bayer, we can't avoid it. We have to make this into a mini therapy session with. Preti and Jeff. Okay. So don't expose anything you don't want to expose, but let's get into it. So where did you grow up because I don't know. Yeah. So I was actually born in the in the Netherlands. So I. A few kilometers outside Amsterdam. That's yeah. That's where I was born. So. And then it kind of moved around a little bit throughout Europe and the night came to the states, a little bit before college. So I came back from Europe, I wanted to come to the states, I wanted to. There was kind of grown up in Europe, especially you know with my grandparents, and my dad being a big influence. You know, that was like the place to be and it still is. And just America playing a huge role in western Europe and the postwar generations. Everyone wanted to come here. This was the place and. Yeah. I was wanted to come here for the opportunity specially because I've super passionate about about business. And I knew that if I wanted to take my entrepreneurial drive floored, it would have to be in this days now. That's what I really just felt and believed in, so I moved here college, you know, met my late teens and that's yeah. That's a little bit about my background from from where I'm from. Wow. Okay. So a little bit outside. I actually visited Amsterdam more than once. That's it. That's awesome. I love that whole that whole area. Let's see what am I usually say. I was really excited to see the red light district and all drugs and stuff just because at that time that was what I was interested. Yes. And my comment now would be even then it was just sad. So in my mind, the fantasy world was, it was going to be this big party, right? It's the red light district. It's party. It's not. It's just that the nice thing about it was wow, just want an amazing city, and it seemed like the police were bored because they didn't have anybody to bust for drugs. Yeah. Right. So when I went, and I want to say it was probably when was there like the early two thousands, I guess, somewhere between two thousand and two thousand three was when I was actually in the air force in England. And we took one assay we took a bus. No, I probably flu could have been one or the other. There was buses, there's planes nose, but the those little like skinny little, what do they call them like streetcars? Right. Yeah. Yeah. Cars and skirts. Yes. Lots of bikes and cars with boots because the they were parked illegally, so there, the police putting boots everywhere. Right. It's great. Is a great great town and melons is fantastic. You know, it's funny like now that I'm going to states, a lot of people want to go to Amsterdam, and being from there, you don't you know, the as being a local, you don't head to the red light district or a tourist thing. It's, it's more of a tourist thing. So I'm gonna grab people are so fascinated with it because there it's just a thing. Yeah. Like once eagle like there, it's legal. So I, I don't hear his our big debate about marijuana and. What age should people consume alcohol and stuff, and like we, we've had those debates longtime ago? So it's a really kind of a non topic. Right. But it's, it's great to see those cultural differences, but also being a local and now going back to visit my family there. But yeah, I liked about the Netherlands is, is one of the few European countries where people speak English really. Well, as of course, there's an accident, but you grow up listening and watching American movies in an entertainment, without it being dubbed. So in other European countries like Germany or France, you know, the movies all times are dubbed. So if you wanna watch English, you have to go to special showtimes. Oh. In the Netherlands, you just have the Dutch, subtitles below. So you kind of you kind of forced in many ways to learn English. And I think it really helps wed really helped me 'cause although my English wasn't really great was not a super good. But it was good enough where I could get by that runny. I'll meet tremendously when, when I came here, of course, I picked up some better better accent through through the years. But for sure I think that was a huge value on. I know a lot of people that go there as tourists never have any problem really finding people that can help them out. No, when the speak English all of Europe is amazing. But I, I really did enjoy my time in other Lund's. It was awesome Francis great Germany was great. Australia's great. I mean, my, my thing is growing up in the states. I always wanted to go to Europe. It's like oh man. It would be awesome. The live in Europe. So when I did it was, it was fun. Yeah. Actually, I would like to go back and live again somewhere. I don't make the Netherlands would probably be a good choice just because you're right. I mean it's, it's really easy. If you don't want to speak, another language, so, yes. Yes. Yes. So anyway. Okay. So. Swear. Did you end up in the state's going to college boss? Yup. Went to Kim to Boston and I went to Boston University pretty big school here in Boston big research university. And I came here, not I knew I wanted to do something in business, and entrepreneurial lead. But I didn't know like what I would want a major ad. So I did switch it up quite a bit. And I know it's a lot of concern for a lot of younger people to go into school, or parents, like, hey, Matt, my kid needs to know the major right from, from the bat, and there are benefits of when you know what you wanna do, and you're debt set on it starting early. I think has a tremendous amount of benefits because then you do have a little bit of a leg up. But if you're someone that isn't really sure what path to take a night night, credit Arkan school system for that because you don't in your we take our path about which, like professionally wanna go into like in early in high school like his fourteen fifteen year old you gal. Yep. So you take a test, and then based on your grade. And then you go into. Schools like they're in your we have a big push for vocational schools in technical school. So the government wants you doesn't want everyone to go to college, because we had a lot of manufacturing jobs after no World War, Two that need to be filled. So they have a school system. That's based on really strongly, not having people changed their major or go to college. So when you go to college, you you're either gonna be you're going to do a professional kind of job and you can't just go to college, and then end up doing something tech, like they don't want that so day, Ashley kiss a really young age to kind of decide their path. And if you end up choosing the wrong path in high school, you have to do like extra years of high school, which is why we see a lot of European you know, students they they're much older and the graduate much later because a path, but the stage is awesome for that. So because you can choose your major down the line. I didn't know in the beginning of really what I wanted to do. I knew I wasn't to health and fitness in and I knew I wanted to do something entrepreneurially, but I actually didn't decide what I really wanted to do until night. Late sophomore or my my junior year. But one of the things I was able to do again, taking vantage with the American school system was just meet tremendous amount of amazing people being like be like that was just mind blowing because I can from pretty small town, and we had, like my high school might tire grade was, like twenty five people so are we smoking? So I need so tiny as I grew up. I went to high school in Switzerland, and it was released in mill school has almost laughable in Switzerland in. Yeah, it was it was tiny in so coming here and being a school with, you know, twenty thirty thousand people was just that really big class. It's one of those auditory classes in. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Those are all my classes freshmen. I had never seen anything like that before except for if that done to soccer game this will this was really a mind blowing but really, it's easy to get lost in those in those places, but it's easy to easier to find a other like minded people who have some sort of similar dry. Five and really create something that can push and propel you. And that's another thing. I to get out of his is your network and building up a great network, which is what I think the value lies in the American educational system, which we don't always have another places in the world..

Comics for kids

"Her a chapter book. She loves ambulant. There's a new one coming out this month. I'm trying to think of the other comic ones. There's a lot of good ones out there. I mean, I think this is another one of those things where it helps to have a rabbi. So if you go to a comic shop and finds somebody who's down with like kids stuff and understands kick kits, comics, you can get some great recommendations. The only one I'd throw in beyond the ones that you've suggested is a comic by Jeff Smith called bone. Oh, yeah, right there big thick addition to that. Yeah, my my kids loved that one, and it's not superhero style. It's more comic strip style, but it's really, really good. And and I, I've known lots and lots of people have recommended this to come back and said that their kids really, really enjoyed it. There's nothing in it that would ever be considered even remotely adult, and it was serialized since like the early early nineties to the early two thousand. So it went for a long time. Well, and and the artwork is great. Stories are cute and it's just a fun, relatively wholesome type type of book for kids. So and parents to well one, I don't know why always feel so reluctant because to recommend this just because I'm. A weird liberal from the left coast. But if you think it's okay for your kid and you think kids ready for it? Lumber Janes is very good, especially for girl child, lumber jeans is real good. It's just about about a bunch of girls at summer camp and it's got some both medically, woke stuff in it, but it's also just really funny and super cute. And so for your tween or teen out the lumber Janes, it's really good media. I make sure it's okay with your, you know how you feel about the world, but I love it and it's full of messages I'm more than happy to put in front of my kid. Yeah, so that's really good what this is really good less adventure time? No, we haven't seen it yet was, was it sad or happy or what was what's gonna talk about it. She refuses to watch it really. It's like trying to get her to lie to watch the last Matt Smith doctor who she just she refuses to acknowledge that it's over how man? Yeah, I got to get into Stephen universe. I'm kind of in the Steven universe. I'm just not super into Stephen universe. I don't know that like all the Stephen universal. Please save yourself an Email by telling me, I really, really need to watch this. I know I really need to watch this every new episode of Steven universe. My daughter is literally screaming from another room. There's a lot happening right now in Steven universe. You wear Steven universe. I know about it. I've never. Uh-huh.
