"On saturday april fourteenth nineteen eighty-four. In cahiers sabine in county kerry ireland a local man jack griffin was out for a jog on white strand fees when he saw what looked like a doll wedged between the rocks in a plastic back. It was the body of a newborn baby. Boy he had been strangled. His neck was broken and his tiny body had twenty eight stab wounds. Four of them were in his heart. The baby was about five days old born on or about the seventh of april and had been dead for two days the irish police known as the gardy recalled and they in turn called the undertaker. Tom carnitine when he arrived tom. Cruise into the baby with water from a nearby freshwater stream. He placed him in a small casket and gave him a name john. The gardy suspected the baby's mother specifically an unmarried mother perhaps a teenage girl or woman who was having an affair with a married man in catholic ireland in the early eighties. Abortion was illegal as was divorce condoms were only available with a prescription and birth control. Pills were only prescribed to married women. Both were difficult to obtain any sex education or lack thereof was laid out by the church. Young unmarried woman found herself pregnant. Her parents could send her away to a church. Run home where she would have her baby in secret and then the nuns would take it away for adoption. Irish women few options could use. Evine was a small town in police. Knew that someone with no something. They questioned women all over town even physically examining some of them for signs of a recent pregnancy before long. They found a suspect joanne hayes. Joanne hayes was a twenty five year old single mother who lived roughly forty miles away. In abbey dorney north kerry. She had recently been pregnant but wasn't anymore and no one had seen a baby.

Solutions for Menopause Symptoms
"Well. Let's get started on today's topic. And i. i want to clear up a misconception. That many women still believe in the past. Many women were told that as we age and reach menopausal years we become deficient in the hormone estrogen. Now the truth is most women have too much estrogen. The excess estrogen. Let's just call it. Estrogen dominance and joanne is gonna talk more about that as well. That's right. I think a better way to explain. Estrogen dominance is if we compare the amount of the hormone progesterone that we have to the amount of estrogen that we have so. It's really we really want to be in balance and when we have too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. That is where we get the term. Estrogen dominance right and when we taught her popular menopause survival seminar in house. Most women were very surprised to hear they did not need more estrogen from hormone replacement therapy or hr t which has a lot of what they had heard from Their from their doctors And to be honest these women actually needed to detox. The excess toxic estrogens for their health. Now some of you might be wondering what are the symptoms of access toxic estrogen. So i want to share some information before. I answer that question because i find that women. Even when they're younger you know in their thirties or forties they can also experience those symptoms of estrogen dominance or excess estrogen and so again too much estrogen. That's the of what we've always been told her. That the misconception that we need more men right. here's just a couple of the symptoms that can occur from this. Estrogen dominance and so many women will experience. They'll notice a decrease in sex drive decrease in libido irregular menstrual periods swelling of the breasts breast tenderness. Even fibro cystic breasts. Disease and uterine fibroids sign of too much estrogen right. You had mentioned earlier Headaches or migraines the ones that come before the menstrual cycle. That's right irritability. Depression problems sleeping insomnia and of course weight gain is another one favorite topic right exactly. Oh in joanne You and i were talking before the show about how we have both had clients in the past who had come in and they would talk about. Oh i used to get headaches and migraines but they would be coming to us postmenopausal and they say oh my headaches and migraines no longer bother me right. So that's just an example of someone who was getting headaches and migraines due to likely s excess estrogen right and then with you know with menopause. The hormones all shift right and then the headaches and migraines style and that's not the only caused migraines but it definitely plays in because yachts of women have come in and say i used to get migraines but now don't anymore so we know that's true and there are also more Other more serious symptoms that have been linked to excess estrogen or estrogen dominance and there are certainly links to estrogen dominance and breast cancer. There's also links to uterine cancer. There are links between excessive estrogen and autoimmune diseases especially comes to mind the hypo hypothyroid shimoda thyroiditis. There is a link between excess. Estrogen and excessive. Blood clotting that can lead to heart disease so those symptoms can be very serious.
How To Support Your Child With Autism
"Joanne. I thank you so much for joining you today. I'm eating for kids podcast. Thank you. Thank you for inviting me. My pleasure. Tell me more about your work. It sounds really interesting and we've been chatting a little bit this morning, but tell me a joke. Yeah, so I've been working for two with children now for about twenty years and I specialized in supporting children with additional needs and special needs. So these are children who have autism like you already HD sensory processing disorder any variety of needs including communication difficulties and behavioral difficulties. Wow. And do you ever come across children who are very picky eaters? Yes. Absolutely. Yes. Yeah, absolutely. And that's one of the things that we do support at home as well. And it's supporting the parents of the obviously to put a plan in place for their child. Okay. So tell me a little bit more about your services. So for example, if a family listen to the podcast today and thought wow, they really loved the sound of Joanna. How exactly do you support your families. So the we have a number of Specialists and these are dead. Sleep specialist tutors. So we do have an academic approach but these because we're so specials. We're also able to support children in their communication and in their behavior, so when it comes down to communication that links directly with eating and nutrition as well because nutrition is about how a child can communicate their wants and needs which is of course includes the hunger and their thirst as well. So cheesy will come in place and talk about any variety of need that their child is experiencing so it could even be fine motor and gross motor skills that you're that HR need to develop and so the tutor will come and provide in a sense three support communication School support nutrition support behaviors off anything that that term is and it's all completely TaylorMade. Wow, it's nicely. You've got quite a big team of Staff working with you. Yeah. So searching my rolling is dead. 2:00 is when a client or new parents phones me. I have a really in-depth discussion with the parents as to what they're looking for in a specialist or a specialist user and then took my role is to match that client or that that students with that child with the specialist immediately making sure that that matches absolutely perfect with regards to the skills and experience of the Specialists. Okay. Perfect Well, I obviously do work with families with children from the autistic spectrum and I generally help them with regards to either very long selective eating. So not yet a Ford Explorer as I like to call them. But also they may ask me about some of the special diets out there and we might explore the evidence around them to see if they were wanted to try an Elimination Diet. They me then we might go down that path. But obviously it's really difficult if your child only eat a really small dog. Except sometimes children who come to see me are eating less than 10 foods or less than 20 foods and I discussed strategies to help them expand that page list of foods that list of safe foods really and it sounds like you do a little bit of work around it as well genetics time on that. Yes. So what we really do is discover the sensor needs of the child with the environment. So there's some things that parents aren't really recognizing it could even be found for example, so what sound is going on in that child's environment is and is that having an impact in a diet e and therefore in that willingness or unwillingness to taste new foods and and to explore and obviously taste but even light and the feel obviously the feel of them food in the mouth and the look of the food so I'm will talk heavenly father about obsessions and colors of food and and ideas around that but its rebirth Thinking about that texture in the child's mouth and some children really like no strong textures some children like quantity text textures and it's how to age gradually introduced different textures into the child diet. Let alone, you know, different nutritional values in the foods as well to being really really aware of that sense of yeah, that sensory needs that that the child is exposed to as well

What You Need to Know About the iPhone 12
"Apple held its second big virtual event of fall yesterday word announced an updated home pod smart speaker, and of course, the headliner its first five G. capable iphone. We originally expected this phone in September but production was delayed due to supply chain issues from the pandemic. Now that it's here, we turn to senior personal tech columnist Joanna Stern to tell us what we ought to know join us. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me. Joanne on tell us about this new iphone twelve. I think you mean four new iphone twelve's because in making things much easier for us all to understand apple released four new iphones. But they also have these slight differences. There's the new iphone twelve mini with is actually not that many but does look a lot smaller than the last few iphones we've seen. Then there's the iphone twelve and then there's the iphone twelve pro and the iphone. Pro Max you got that all. Only. Just. So what new features did we see I think that's what makes this year's upgrade pretty great is that there are lots of new features across the entire lineup and the big ones include five G. Five G. is an all of these new phones. There are new designs of all of the new phones more square edges looks a lot like the iphone five or the iphone four was very nice beautiful design some. Really happy to see that you've got camera tricks and you've got all new screens, new Oleg screens across the entire lineup plus your favorite anew charging configuration. Right? I am very excited. The design has a new magnet in the back. This is not visible, but it's below the surface and there's a magnetic coil and apple is now rolling out a new accessory line called MAG safe. You might remember the name from those old macbook. And these magnetic accessories will clip to the back of the phone and one of them is a new wireless charger. That apple says will be a lot faster than usual wireless charging, and of course, the big update here is five G. capability. Five networks are supposed to be the next generation networks and bring faster download speeds better connectivity. And we know investor sentiment has really reached a fever pitch in anticipation of this new phone, what are they and apple hoping this new phone can do for the company I think they are all thinking back to other quote unquote super cycles, and these were big leaps in iphone technologies whether it was big leaps in screen size or big leaps from three G.. To Four G. and there was a lot of excitement around these almost a decade ago and that really got people to upgrade in by new phones because the technological leaps were significant here we're seeing a little bit of that, but it's certainly not the leap I. think that investors or even apple thinks it is especially in five G. I've tested a lot of. Five g phones and they can be very fast but they can be pretty fast when you're in specific areas and when you're on your phone, you don't really feel those speeds. Of course, what the investors and apple are hoping is that the speeds unlock newt sorts of innovations, new types of APPs new types of technologies that run on top of it we saw. This with four G. Four G. unlocked a whole new generation of APPs things from Uber to instagram our phones could load these things faster. Now, our phones are pretty much fast enough. What are we going to do with this faster speed? That's the big question yeah, and we heard over and over again during yesterday's presentation that quote five G. Just got real you've quite. A bit of reporting on five G. Networks I wonder what's your take is five really real now for smartphone users five G. Israel and you can get it but you have to be in a very specific set of circumstances to get it. You need to have the right carrier you need to be in the right location in verizon sense you actually need to. Be Outside standing near a opole. So it is real but is not going to be very real for most users right now. So it sounds like there's a bit of a disconnect between proponents of five G. and consumers. How are we expecting to see apple and their carrier partners trying to close that gap? A Lotta this is about future proofing you have A. Five G. Phone now, and these networks start to get better and they start to get better pretty rapidly. I have to say I have seen a substantial increase in the last year last summer I had to journey to different parts of the US to get five G.. Now, I can just go to a different section of the city or a different section of. My neighborhood to try to test out five G.. So it is getting better the speeds are getting better but there are a lot of technical hurdles and there are a lot of glitches frankly, I mean, there are times when I testify g and the same exact spot and I could get blazing fast speeds, one minute, and then another minute just sort of four speeds. Are Joining as our senior personal columnist. The big question is, should people upgrade to this phone or should they wait my advice is to wait for my review but if you're looking preorder, my first piece of advice is do not upgrade just for five G. that's not a reason to upgrade. But what's really nice about what apple was there was a whole other big feature set that you get here that isn't just tied to five. G. You get those nicer designs you get that nicer screen you get that more compact form factor. If you want to get that many device loads of new camera tricks many that I don't frankly understand and need to even dig into because the presentation was so packed with all that information. So don't just go by for five G. go by for the big package and what it all means together. All right anything else that jumped out. At you about yesterday's event. Yes. Interestingly, they started the event talking about the product that we never remember that apple makes, which is the home pod, a new home pod mini, and this is a really compelling little product. It is a smart speaker from Apple Ninety nine dollars. Obviously, they're to compete against the Amazon and the Google Minis of the world lots of features that others have had before it's lagging in music support. No. spotify and Pandora's not going to be there for a couple of months but seemed like a compelling holiday gift by

Unpacking Palantirs Public Debut: CEO Alex Karp
"This is squawk pod I'm CNBC producer Katie Kramer today on our podcast. unpacking Pailin, tear the high profile highly secretive software company has operated quietly for seventeen years and it's finally on the public markets. And -ticipant I I think for maybe the past ten years CEO Elon on why it it took. So long my lawyers will shoot me what I can tell you is we are very very focused on building software a longtime before other people building and how he expects to become profitable with a small, but mighty and mighty controversial of customers. Well, how can you have the Super Valuable Company? They're only a hundred and twenty-five customers to which I respond. Yeah. But one, hundred, twenty, five most. Interesting institutions in the world I would ask people who are watching this to make a list of the institutions they admire in the world, and then roughly figure out if they're using pounder that interview plus the politics behind listing journalist Joanne Lipman fits a company that is very, very closely aligned with the trump administration. There's a huge question here about what happens if trump does not win the presidency it's Thursday October first October twenty twenty the year is still twenty twenty squawk pot begins right now. Good morning and welcome the squawk box right here on CNBC. I'm Andrew Ross Sorkin along with Joe Kernan Becky off today. Today on the PODCAST volunteer goes public analytics company that is usually described as secretive debuted yesterday the direct listening selling new shares on the New York Stock Exchange covered live on CNBC how tears for trading why secretive well here is named after magical orb and Lord of the Rings. But in seventeen year history, it hadn't made much public volunteer received early funding from the venture arm of the CIA and provide software products designed to crunch numbers. One of these programs is called Gotham and it's for government clients. Who Need to organize an understand massive amounts of data. So surveillance predictive policing, possibly rooting out potential terrorism threats, Pailin tear works with US Army Navy Department of Homeland Security and it's working with health and human services to help track the spread of Corona virus case data that we just recorded. We can immediately narrow into emerging hotspot counties, notable backers of talent tear include investor, and Co founder Peter Thiel who has gotten attention for his conservative politics and support of president trump in the two thousand, sixteen campaign. Evening. I'm Peter Thiel I'm not a politician, but neither is donald trump as well as his work technology companies. He was facebook's first big investor other pollen tear backers include wall streeters like Hanlon and Stanley Druckenmiller when talent tear filed paperwork with the SEC to pursue publising listing earlier this year it's called the swan event is finally got a sense of the books turns out pollen tear had never turned a profit and. A, huge chunk of its revenue came from its three biggest clients which are anonymous in the first six months of twenty twenty. It's revenue of nearly half a billion dollars a big jump from the year before this was addressed by pollen tear CEO, Alex Carp investor roadshow, which true to carbs personality, and true to the weirdness of twenty twenty was virtual and started on cross country skis. Welcome to Powell, tears investor day. We're very proud to have you here. Carp is an Orthodox for a CEO. He has amazing curly hair. He uses the modifier super allot super cool and speaking to potential investors. He made the pitch for the importance of Pailin tears purpose. This way of looking at the world war literally savior situation and in many cases Save Your Life Allen to has moved beyond. Just government clients fifty-three percent of its customers are in the private sector big name businesses who use a software program called foundry include Airbus Merck Ferrari and United Airlines but it's work for governments here and others around the world stuck to its reputation allentown faced criticism from privacy groups and for its work with the US Customs and border. Patrol. Tracking immigrants at the border. But Carp in the company not backed off in. That s one filing the leader of this highly valuable tech uniform said, Pailin tears work is different in his view software missions to keep safe may have become controversial but companies built on advertising dollars are commonplace and carp took aim at big tech culture directly writing quote our company was founded in Silicon Valley. But we seem to share fewer and fewer of the technology sectors, values and commitments. Helen tear moved its corporate headquarters to Denver and its shares headed to Wall Street. If you think, we are going to change our internal culture drastically if you think we're going to work with regimes that are not allied with the US enter abusing human rights if you think. that. That the future is going to be a super rosie place where the past ways of supplying software are going to work because enterprises and governments do not need to be reformed you should not invest in pounder. Andrew. Ross Sorkin has interviewed Alex Carpet number of times. This conversation was reported Wednesday yesterday right after the first trade for here on the New York. Stock Exchange. We've had lots of conversations over the years. This has been probably one of the most highly anticipated offerings or listings in a very long time. Almost every year that we would talk in Davos I would invariably ask you are you going to go public? Are you gonNA list and invariably you wouldn't. So let's start with why now? Well, first of all, thank you for having me and I and I really would like to thank all the pound tyrians who stuck with us and built this company and our investors you're stuck with us and you know over the years we've been skeptical about listing and for lots of reasons, we really needed to build our products. With enough protection so that we would be ready to launch them into the public space. And we built we built out PG government and foundry product and and built a way to maintain them so that we wouldn't have to scale the number of people and. You know we've reached a base where where our company's very significant and we believe being in the public space will help us with our clients and help us grow and quite frankly I believe the people apparently who built this company over seventeen years. Deserved a access to liquidity. So we we decided this would be great time for us and so far. It's been a really interesting process and and our clients are embracing it. So it's a really good time for us and I'm very, very grateful. Outlets. The single biggest question that investors ask about this company is seventeen years in while you know may have an operating profit, the company unto itself is still not profitable. So so walk us through what the path to profitability looks like. Well, you know we build these products years before people build them, and that takes money and what you see in the cove it pandemic crisis is we had built this way of going to market with foundry, which would allow us to literally supply an enterprise with a completely new stack of products within six hours and maintain them. And what you saw when we did that is we grew the company forty, nine, percent, forty, nine percent off of a seven, forty, three base and the divergence between expenses and in growth is dramatic. And we're just going to be very very focused on on an invigorating, our software offering. But when you're growing forty-nine percent off of a seven forty base. I think that's a pretty strong indication of what the future could hold and we're super proud of that and I think you're seeing that people are taking a look at our financials and our our company is often been used viewed as complex and. Needing explanation both moral and financial but it turns out our financials are quite simple and you look at this dramatic growth with flat lining expenses and I think that gives investors comfort and it certainly makes me feel as. Co Founder and CEO that we made the right decision to invest heavily over well over a decade in building software, the way other people don't to build it and you see the results do you think the profitability is at twenty twenty, two, proposition twenty, twenty, three proposition can I put you on that? Well, you you can push me but of course, my lawyers will shoot me I can tell you what I can tell you is we are very very focused on building software a time before other people building, supplying it and I think that are year I. First Half of the year growth will be reflective of the future and if I'm right. That will answer all of your interesting questions and we'll be interviewing. You'll be interviewing me again maybe not a Davos but virtually, and we'll see how we do. Confident confident we'll do well. Alex, one of the other questions people ask is how to comp your company meaning what are the comparable should this be considered a technology company as SAS company or should this could be considered a much more traditional consulting company? Can you speak to that? Well I think what the investors are seeing is they're asking the question at this point they used to ask is this is this a company that built software for the government and how do they build it? Of course we always sold this as a license. Then they saw our margins of the first half of the year round eighty percent. So I think the real debate now is. Move significantly away from is this software services because although people think we're very smart, we're not smart enough to get eighty percent margins off of a services company. The question then is, how do you comp it and honestly I think that's something investors will have to figure out. We're not focused on that we're focused on we are going to be the most important software company in the world. And people will figure out what valued over a long period of time and we're very comfortable with investors toying around it could be like this. It could be like that. We are going to deliver the best software. With the morals most efficient way of delivering it investors will decide what's that. What's that were is worth to them and I think you'll find a number of years that will be a consensus. Palette. Here is a truly special software company that is arguably the most important software company in the world. Alex has everybody knows You have contracts with various government agencies, obviously and some of the bluest of the blue chip companies in America today, but it's a concentrated list of about one hundred and twenty-five companies. About Twenty eight percent of the revenue actually comes from three of those clients unto themselves. Two thirds of the revenue comes from the top twenty. How much of a risk does that pose on one side but also when you think about the opportunity on the other, if we're having a conversation like this in in twelve or twenty, four months, how much do you want that list to increase in size or do you just want to keep that group effectively and a effectively raise the margin or cost for those clients? And grow that business. Well, we want to do all the we're going to do all of the above. So interesting about our client list people people ask, well, how can you have the super? Valuable Company they're only one hundred and twenty-five customers to which I respond but one hundred and twenty-five most interesting institutions in the world. These aren't just any institutions. The literally, I would ask people who are watching this to make. A list of the institutions they admire in the world and then roughly figure out if they're using, we don't go out and advertise our product, but I would say the list of our clients is the single most impressive institutions in the world I've ever seen we. So we want to keep these clients. Also investors will of noticing in the one that well over ninety percent of our growth in the first half of the. Year came from our existing clients. What does that mean our existing clients? The most important clients in the world are really happy that's what it means. So of course, we're going to expand those really happy clients who happen to be the coolest people on the planet, and then we've built this product which has gotten very little attention called Apollo Apollo allows us to maintain and deliver software to any number of clients with essentially. Not growing our our force apparent and force at all. So we're planning now that we have Apollo to grow the number of super cool customers all over the world, and we can do it without raising our headcount, and so what you're going to see is we're going to continue building with our clients why they're the most interesting clients in the world and they clearly based on our numbers like us and some of us. We are going to expand our client base. Why? Because now with Apollo, we can deliver the whole stack in six hours. I don't think any other company I've ever seen in the world can do that, and we can do with efficiencies that I don't know any other companies going to do because we can do this with a small number of people sitting in our office that we have maintaining, updating and providing them with new products we built. So they don't have the Frankenstein monster that takes two years to build and has to be maintained with either human hours like in the government contracting case or by purchasing new product or compensating sales people or behind. It people you don't even talking to you can actually buy one stack. So we are going to increase revenue with current customers, get new customers and continue our march. Alex how easier heart is because I know you've talked about trying to keep things in in terms of the platform if you will how he's your heart it for four clients to leave in terms of the churn. Well, as I mentioned, ninety, five percent of our revenue comes from existing customers. So customers, obviously if a customer wants to leave they, can I think the main reason our customers stay besides the fact that the output is very significant as they look at this product, we supply foundry the average customers paying less than six million dollars and they compare it to buying twenty products paying ongoing licensing. Fees. You can't get out of or building something over years, and the last thing they compare it to is we're not delivering a roadmap. Most people are living roadmap of what are you going to get in a year we're delivering a product after six hours so customers can leave. But what you see in the numbers is they by and large don't, and it's not because of my charming personality. Alex well, let me ask you a different question. We've had lots of fascinating geopolitical and philosophical questions about the role of technology and Pailin tear itself as well as the approaches silicon valley has taken. I'm curious in terms of risks how you think about this Amnesty International as you know, criticized, the company recently for its role of working with ice. How much of that does that pose a risk to the larger business? Especially, the corporate business at a time when we have corporations at taking both political positions and also being oftentimes being socially at activist. To Your Business Well, look the fact that we take positions that are sometimes controversial can cost. US clients. But it also gets us. Clients because when we talked to a client and we say look we're going to work with you. We're not gonNA walk away just because the winds change and this is super important especially to our government clients if you're supplying special forces and army and the US, those clients have to know that they will not be left on the battlefield. Because a because Silicon Valley has decided they don't like the warfighter. So of course that costs revenue many of our decisions of cost US revenue we only work in certain countries we've walked away from work because if human rights issues we've said, we disagree with very prominent human rights organizations and we engage in dialogue but also by the way is a reason why I Think people who are watching this may consider investing or not investing. We are not going to stand up here and say we're for everybody we're not going to pretend, and by the way we're going to try avoid jargon. We will actually tell you what we think it's not going to be created by fifty media people it may have to be carried by a couple. Of Lawyers but one of the unique things about power tears, we actually say things and we actually stick to them and that's something not everyone likes but many of our customers do and by the way I think it is a reason why ninety five percent of our revenue comes from customers because when we tell them, we're going to deliver we are going to deliver. Alex. One of the other questions now you all republic company. But as you know, you have three tiers of stock classes of shares that is and to some degree there have been critics who said, this is effectively a private company masquerading as a public company. Can you speak to the decision to structure the shares the way that they are structured and how governance experts and folks should think about that I think it's important for government experts to look and make an deliver opinion but I would also ask them to consider the environment we live in pound tear has been in silicon valley up till recently for seventeen years and in silicon. Valley. Defending the. warfighter providing our troops with technology that allowed them to come home is very controversial. I do not believe a company like ours that makes really consequential decisions for government clients and non-government clients could be run without an F. share structure and I understand there's criticisms investors look and say, well, why should talent you're having F. structure? What is my? What is my what? What can I do if? I don't agree with them. The primary reason why we fought for an structure and we asked investors to buy into it was we need to be able to go to our especially our Intel and defense clients and say, we will not just blow with the wind. And does shares for a company like ours gives us a unique ability to have long-term commitments to the most important clients in the world, both commercial and government, and that's why I believe they're super important, and I also again would encourage people if that's not something you're comfortable with there are many shares to buy. We don't have to buy challenge your shares. You should buy shares knowing that these shares reflect our views. Alex we've often had these conversations in Davos where globalization has ruled the roost but as you know so well, the world seems to be shifting to a globalized world, a splinter net if you will. How do you think long term that will affect the business of here We made this decision, which is actually a secret only because no one believes it's true which is that we didn't solve the problem of fighting terrorism. We solve the problem of doing data protection and fighting terrorism, and the architecture we built both PG and for foundry will allow a super set to work with subsets, which means if the world's splinters and every country has its own jurisdictions, it's GonNa be very hard for normal software companies because they're not built to do that but it's going to be very good for Palette here and finally Alex. Decision five years from now today. How would you measure success? Here, what would be the metrics which measure it? We know they're there obviously financial metrics but I'll tell you Powell cheer has recruited and retained I believe the most interesting most talented most ethical people I've ever met and we work I've interacted with thousands of institutions and in five years when meet I think he'll say to me. Wow, that wasn't just you saying that because it was the right thing to say it's actually true. And the products that will build over that period we'll we'll. We'll be unique and they will tilt the course of history. In favor of things that are good and noble. And will not avoid the complexity that's necessary to do that outlets. Carpool. You lots of luck and we do look forward to having that conversation hopefully in five years. But hopefully sooner than that. Thanks so much Alex.
Edit Your Weddings on the iPad!
"Welcome back to another episode of this week. In photo I'm your host Frederik van Johnson Today on Hodzi is Rep Marley like I said in the intro there he's a wedding photographer destination wedding photographer he knows his way around the camera way around his way around the wedding business. In fact, he's in the not hall of fame. So he knows his way around this industry, but he does a lot of his post processing on an IPAD. So that's what intrigued me about this array. Right. Welcome to the Joanne. How's it going man? I really appreciate the opportunity this is great. I'm excited to talk to you and I connected on twitch. Lurking in one of your streams, watching you edit photos on an IPAD and you know what I said when I saw that blasphemy. Early. Actually get that. A lot of people don't like what are you? What are you doing on the IPAD? This is it's definitely not something you would typically see when you watch photographer edit for sure. Yeah. Yeah. So yeah, I wanNA talk about that. Well, let's talk before we get started with let's talk about your pedigree you know with with photography how'd you get started and how did you get inducted into the not hall of fame? So I got into the wedding industry actually from I've been doing this. Technically, my business started in two thousand and ten. So going on ten years about eleven years here in the next few months but I started my business technically while I was in, college? And it's definitely one of those things to where there's just listening to have done so bad. Interview before. So. You really yes. Yes. Cool. Your you're perfect. Your Voice is perfect your audio serve big your lighting and background or perfect. Just thinking this is a conversation is chatting. All right. You start. You may answer the question again and ask again I'll before okay let me let me pause that from not pausing banana. Leaves some blank space for my edit here. So here we go. Okay Aereo. Case a here we go. was I on a two-shot wasn't a two yard shot Aereo. Okay. So before we dive into your workflow and you know the IPAD and how you're able to use that in in in a professional setting, give us a little bit a little bit of background. First of all first question would be you the what what's your origin story I always ask people what the radio spider you know story is how did you come Zuber Chiro? How'd you get into this this crazy world of taking pictures? Okay. So it actually started for me out started out on the yearbook staff of my high school those the first time that camera had been putting my hands. The teacher was like, Hey, we need someone to take pictures in that moment I was like sure all do it, but I really had no clue what I was doing. But as I began to take pictures in high school, I found passion for it fell in love with it. and. That's really where it all began and then when I went to college actually applied to be a part of the magazine staff that would go around and take pictures for the magazine for the university I went to and from there really just kind of became a snowball effect. I. Guess You could say it in college was probably one of the few students who had his own DSL our cameras it was a canon x Ti. So it was another fancy, but you gotta start somewhere and so you know I was really proud to have my own cameron year in college and so as. My friends began to get engaged. They came to me Be Willing to take our engagement photos sure and I would just take photos and that right there is what I guess. The snowball effect is and what started everything and so. As I began to take more and more of my friends engagements eventually led into weddings and was really just doing it for fun. And before I knew it though by the time I had graduated from College I had enough photos to put a portfolio together for a website, and so you know graduated no SEC. Okay Let's see if we can make something work and so I put a website together and then the fun began of trying to figure out how to. Grow it into a business probably a whole different rabbit trail, but it did at eventually grew and grew and grew to where it is today

"Are so excited to. To introduce incredible Stephanie Fleming. She is a creative entrepreneurs speaker of and wellness seeker. Most notably, she is the CO founder of me and my big ideas creator of the happy planner, and what began twenty years ago as a tiny garage business is now an industry leading lifestyle brand and offers a wide variety of products that inspire customers to live creatively and plan a happy life. Please welcome Stephanie to the show. Okay, we'll Stephanie. We are so excited to have you on the here for her podcast. Thank you so much for joining us. And we are so curious about everything that you've created and your and so I think. Our audience is going to be very very interested in the business aspect of. Everything that we're about to talk about some super excited cool. I'm so excited to be talking to you. Guys for those who don't know. Tell us a little bit about your health. I'm Stephanie. Fleming and I'm a creative entrepreneur. I actually call myself like an accidental entrepreneur. I started my business me and my big ideas with my mom twenty actually over twenty years ago started in my garage with an idea of just one idea for making stickers for the scrapbooking industry at that time and. And really just kind of wanted to do it too. I needed a creative outlet. Yes, but I needed to pay the bills like I. was you know a young mom and struggling to make ends meet, and just really wanting to like. Go out there and I would do anything because I you know I wanted a better life for myself, and for my kids and and so I was definitely you're. You're? The definition of a hustler like I was like I have no money, but I will put in the sweat equity so. We been hustling with me and my big ideas for. Over twenty years now, and we've created everything from paper stickers and now planner, so planners is our latest the happy planners, our latest product line and It's just been such a a wonderful thing for us to get into because we get to share a love for creativity for positively, and that's been kind of where I have fallen in the last probably five or six years which. Not only being an entrepreneur in a business person, but also being able to be the spokesperson for our product and our brand, and that's something that I've been totally passionate about. It's amazing. I'm curious. So, what did you do before you started your business? Were you a stay at home? Mom? Did you have have a job, so I was? I was pregnant when I was eighteen. Not Married had had a baby, and when immediately from high school to I need to find some way to take care of my son and I did in home daycare for eight years, and was daycare provider for six kids usually at one time and it was you know it's honest work? It's hard work. It's eleven hour days for you know for eight years and you know all I to do is be a good mom, and and so I didn't have a college education. I grew up in the craft industry though my. My parents had a manufacturing and distributing business so I grew up from picking orders in the warehouse. To you know watching my parents who are entrepreneurs basically navigate the craft industry and come along with them to trade shows and things like that so I always had that creative bug, and and even as an entrepreneur as a kid I was making little catalog, so you can buy these cards here, my designs and so, but then life hits, and then you have to go out, and you know and do the best you can and and so at the time. In one, thousand, nine, hundred eight. My mom and my mom had sold that business, she and my stepdad divorced and they sold their business, and so she was kind of at this place in her life where she was like okay. I'm ready to start over, I need. She was probably my age now, and it was like thinking I need to start over and figure out what life looks like for me. Now and I was saying I just I want to start something something I want to do anything and so my mom had some seed money and. Like I said I would do. You know so. I stayed up all night trying to find just hustling to find hair. Competitors are advertising in this trade magazine. So that's a potential a mailing list for so anything possible. I was willing to do so. Yeah so it was not like I had this pedigree of an MBA, and I'm going. Go start a business, and that's why I say I'm definitely. An accidental entrepreneur, but I've I've loved it. We'll story. It is very very cool. It seems like you had it in your blood like raped in the beginning. Though like it was something that you're meant to do. I, think so. I think without knowing that that's what it was like. I was just cleaning out. One of the things we've done in quarantine is cleaning out our garage and so all my memorabilia. That's where I found my card. Catalogue of here are the things you combine I'm like I always was. Experiencing entrepreneurship right in front of my is growing up but I never really knew it. In fact, my mom was in charge of all of the creative side of the business, and was the one in charge of new products, and out there trying to find out what creative women were doing next, and so when my mom would go on an rnd shopping trip and take all of us with her. We didn't realize what we were doing was watching her shopping trends and seeing what was out in fashion, and how we can bring that into the craft and creative industries, so when it just seemed like something natural, and now I'm trying to identify people go. Where do you find your trend Mic-? Just Watch I. Just look and so yeah. We were Kinda groomed without knowing that that's what was happening. So cool and so. You had your first business you? You began doing that twenty years ago. And then you landed to the happy planner, which has been a huge success and It's a it's a beautiful book. It's something that you want to. Hold in your hand, and just like carry with you all the time. It's so cute and fashionable. Where did that idea come from? And how? How did you of get to that point? Where like I want to be in this market of making planners? Happy like honestly we've had a lot of great products that of sold weller mckellen's pretty cool, but the happy planner is like it's so me. It's totally me so the the way we came up with. It was pretty much the same process that we did it with anything. As we and my sister is heavily involved in product about men in our company as well, but we watch in decide okay. scrapbooking was huge for a while, and so we were able to kind of ride that. That wave and we've kept coming out with products and line extensions and and then you kind of see that it was kind of starting to taper off. It was not as popular and the products weren't as weren't selling and going doing the having the sell through that they did before, so we're like okay. We need to know what creative women are doing next. which is what my mom did, so we would always be looking for what. What what do i WanNa do what is something that's interesting for me. and and then also kind of searching pinterest looking around water, creative women doing so for some reason on pinterest people were taking just regular planners from staples, or whatever and they were putting our scrapbooking products, stickers and things and making them cute but the scrapbooking don't really fit like they don't fit size-wise. They didn't fit if you're you know the stickers we were. Were to commemorate memories and things, and that's not necessarily the things that you need for planning so I kind of just you know, and they were boring to staples like office supply things. They have black brown different color bays. You know really great. You know what I think. Someone would would think the businessmen would like. And then there was like three designs that were like purple. Paisley or some ugly grandma color. You know I'm a woman, I. I don't want that, so we thought definitely we could do better in design. We could get them more affordable. We could create accessories that would go specifically for them, and then you could put in those accessories like things that are positive so that every single day when you're planning when you're having fun putting stickers out ever, there's this creative positive message that makes you happy that keeps you going, and so it was just a kind of another. Offshoot into what we normally do. What are creative women doing? And at this point? It was like people are busy, and they want to be creative, but they need that little bit of licensed to say it's okay when you're planning your schedule. You can kind of put a sticker downer. Says you can do it or just. Those little positive affirmations make a make a big difference. I love that so much were all about positive affirmations and There's something that I still love about having a planner in front of me like an organizational planner. Where where I. Can you know touch the pages and I can mark things off. It's so different than a calendar on Google you know and I've always I've i. still have a planner, so I love that, but I'm curious because you have built such a successful brand and obviously. You've separated yourself in so many ways by having something very unique You offer as something that's very I would say year to the millennial woman. But how how have you separated yourself with your branding? I'm just so curious about like where your sales come from utilizing social media, you have a huge social media following. So, how what kind of what was your? What was the method to your madness at that point when you started thinking ahead? Yeah, so at that point. We had we had a very successful company in the craft industry and up? Until that point, we had what I figured successful products. We didn't really have necessarily like brand. Following social media was just coming up, but you know there was something about the happy, and I think my own personal passion for the product helped in planning it. No Pun intended. because. I feel like we got to this place or like this product line. I just feel like we need to be able to have a brand. There's gotta be a message behind because the message of the product is so powerful and so really. What happened I mean there wasn't? A Master Plan I love this product so much. That I just started talking about it and sharing on social media back in the periscope days. You remember, periscope yeah. Remember. About it and I just said you know what I would anytime we would come up with something, or we had something new exciting happening in office. I'd like I'm just GONNA share. It's just going to be I wanted to our product and the brand to feel like like we were just friends sharing like. If I was you know to call you up and say Oh, my Gosh I'm so excited. We just got this prototype in, and here's what it looks like. Here's how I'm going to use it and every. Every new products came in. We previewed it on periscope did live Q. and A. is, and and that's before people really doing that and we were sharing the process and the product, and sharing my excitement, geeking out over stickers and a paper planner you know, so. It became I thought there was really no plan other than to share authentically, and that was really before, but you know everything authenticity be authentic was just such a overused catchphrase, but that's what it was because I didn't actually want to be the spokesperson. For our company, and because it's such a team effort, and so I'm not. I'm not maybe maybe I wouldn't had the idea for. Let's let's look into to paper planners, but I didn't create designs, and I not the artist, and I'm not the one who source the product and sold it in such a team so but. In order I felt so passionately that. Don't have relationships with companies. They don't have relationships with products, but they have relationships with people and brands, and if I could be that conduit. To Give A. Personality to our land our company then. I'm like all right. I'm willing to do because I was the one before it was like no, I don't really want to know I'm just I'm fine to not do it, but when I was sharing something, I was so passionate about the following just came. We did not say hey. We want to get to I. Think we're over six hundred thousand on instagram. We didn't have a plan for that. I mean eventually to grow. It takes you get to a certain point. It's like okay now. You have to plan, but we grew our numbers very very organically, and by just engaging with them. You know true engagement and it's. It's not even just the number in the plan, but it's like. Are you engaged? Do you care about your followers? Do you care about your customers and deal you know? Are you engaging that way? Are you doing it for the rise near following? Are you doing it for the sale? Are you doing? Are you doing it because this? Just feel so right to you know. Yeah while you're on that topic, too. Because so cool that you grew organically because. I mean it's such an easily marketable product, but also like how how do you stand out amongst your competitors are? There's other planner companies out there. So what's your differentiating factor with your product? So at the beginning? We were the only ones pretty much doing what we did, so we stood out really quick, and it's almost like I. Always say like it was like. Like when I had my first when I said WHO's very well behaved typical. I am such a good mom. And then my daughter came a second, and she is like great, but she's you know totally like wild spirit and I'm like oh my gosh. I need to to work at this little more. So when we did when all of a sudden you're like It's growing and you're thinking. Oh, my gosh is great. People are just listening, and then all of a sudden when you're onto something, people and other brands and other companies go. They're onto something I. Think I'm going to try that, too. And then what you were doing so authentically is being duplicated right so. So what we have always done I think and even back in the scrapbooking and paper. Crafting days was just advice. My mom gave me is just really don't worry too much about what other people are doing. Find out what you uniquely do. What is it that your company or your brand do what do you? How do you stand out and for US There's a lot of people who have high end stationary and people. People that are saying a professional and I want it to look like this or I. Don't like this about your as well. This is who we are. We are colorful and fun and were affordable. We have a disc bound system where you can change things in and out, and those are some things honestly and with the brand that will turn people off when you really claim like who you are. Some people are going to say. Well, I. Don't know but I. don't like that well, but this is who we are when you can really find that those are the things that just kind of narrowed down, and you nail it down so much that these are the things that make us unique, and so for us. We embraced all of that. That is who we are fun and colorful, positive and an interchangeable, and all these things about the product and about our messaging. That's what we focused on, and I think even especially going forward when it becomes harder and you. Maybe at this point, we're going like you see a slowing in not just gaining followers as fast when you get up high. And there's more people in the space so for us it's how can we find? What, we, what is it that we offer? That's unique whether it's the message product. And, you kind of have those pillars of our being authentic. Is it something that's different or are we just white noise in the space? Should we be making a change? We be pivoting. Right now do. Is there something we need to be doing to be more aware of the surroundings of the economy of this of society so You're constantly looking for you have to just be aware. Of who you are where you're going and not being paying too much attention to. The competitors and the people aside. It's really hard though it's hard to do because you find yourself looking. They're doing so good over there. Maybe I should change and go that way so knowing who you are is a huge part of that success for us. And, I love how you really made an emphasis on. Being okay with not being a good fit for everyone, and you know we talk about this even on social media. How you know people always give us questions on. You know my Gosh I I lost if I don't post for three days. I'll lose one hundred followers well if those people want on, follow you because you haven't posted three days. They're not your people. Like they were never people anyway, so I love that you have you have a focus and you understand your branch so well. The you know who you're catering to, and also you mentioned pivoting when you need to because. You know I think that people get so focused on the end goal, and if it's not if it doesn't turn out exactly how they anticipated that it would be, they give up right, so I think that's I. Love that so much and it kind of brings me to my next question on. The hardships entrepreneurship because I think that when people look from the outside, they see this beautiful brand that you've built a successful mom who's who's doing it all, but it takes so much work and behind the scenes that the people don't see. Can you walk us through some of those hardships that you faced in how you've kind of gotten through them? Oh yeah and I think. I'm so glad you brought that up because you especially on social media, people will see their, so they'll say. Where were you because I'm pretty active on my own, and then also I with the happy planner, but it like where were you? We Miss John there. I'm like you guys like if I would have shown. What I was doing for the past seven days, it was get up in the morning. Go to work. Stay there till seven o'clock have like meetings altay come home barely figure how I'm going to get the door dash before I wanna fall asleep, and then you know over it over and over again and I'm like it's not glamorous. It's hard There's a lot that goes into it. You know and you have to love it if you are somebody who has your own business or your own brand? You have to love it because it is not I mean I would say. Ninety, eight percent of it's not glamorous, but it's rewarding. You know it's something that you love, but you're GONNA have failures. You can't be afraid to work hard and fail. Because, you're GONNA. Do both of those all the time? And you know and learning from your from your failures for me. It's like you know we've had products that the ones that you've mentioned like happy planner that quadrupled the size of our business in the matter of two years But in the in between, and we had already had like a pretty successful company, and we were like well, but what you don't see, are all of the things where you come out with the product and you're like that's a dog. You Know Kate next. What do we? Can we learn from that? You know that's what you can't. You can't shy away from it, but nobody wants to see that nobody, but those are the lessons. Are you know what you're seeing? When when you see the happy planner is our success of you know Gosh over twenty we did that. It was fifteen years. I think into the our business before we hit that like Grand Slam, we'd had several. You know that was. This product was a triple. This one was a strikeout. This one was a base hit. And then you know, we never know we not. Even we're not even. Promise that we were going to have that big of a success that we just kept going and every time we did we learned something like Oh we didn't do. The packaging wasn't right or you know. Maybe we rent to too early into that trend, or maybe we didn't research it enough or maybe we learned something every time but I mean we've had. We've had product failures. We've had really difficult times in the economy I've been around here through September eleventh through the two thousand eight crash where the business was doing great, and then all of a sudden we've had were having to like have layoffs and figure out how to make the hard decisions. To keep your business healthy and around and surviving, and that's really hard. I mean that's something that right now we're going through. You know we have. Luckily we've got a great basin. We've had a very successful business, but this is a gut punch, and for a healthy business like ours. This has been really difficult and I can only imagine if you're struggling before this, but you just have to figure out you. It's almost like a business as almost like being a parent. You've got to make those tough decisions. Decisions you know that not everyone's going to understand. That's going to be hard. It's going to keep you up at night. and those those you don't see those on social media. No one's sharing like we had to really hard today and or have been meetings all day, and if they are, they're showing you the picture of themselves looking really cute, and you know here I am with my thing and it's. It's just not always like that victims hardly ever like that, so I think it's sometimes i. I've shared lots more real version especially on my own personal social media on instagram. Especially because I, think we do a disservice to. Everybody but to women's in general specifically where it's like if you're trying to be an inspiration and trying to share with other women, this is what if I can, we can all be here for each other. You, know in business, and this is how we can succeed. We are doing a disservice if we are just showing what our lives really never looked like And how how then do those? How'd you push through? How do you push through at the worst times for people that are listening that are entrepreneurs have launched their business or not seeing success right away. Like what have you learned to cut has kept you going. I think i. mean this sounds like something that my husband would go. No, if you can't measure it, you can't manage it because he's. My husband was our CFO CEO and. But for me, I, it's so much into an instinct. And then pushed through because I believe in my instinct very strongly. There's a thing like I feel like you know for us. We were very fortunate that the business that we started stayed healthy, and was viable forever, however I. Kind of look at our product launches in our product releases and different product types almost like many businesses, because there comes a time when you know this isn't working, you know there comes a time when you're like. We just need to let this keep going. We need to work at market. We need and you just you kind of. If you're really being honest with yourself, you know when it's like am I pushing too hard for something. That's not really making. Any headway or do I just need to keep working harder and I feel like You know if we ask ourselves how we done everything. HAVE WE EXHAUSTED EVERY OPTION? That's what I think. We need to kind of listeners, though because I just feel like if you are sitting here like. With a struggling business, let's say whether it's from the economy or just like I'm just not going anywhere It's hard because some people will say just keep going. Just keep going all the time. I don't think you should do that all the time. Sometimes you want maybe need to move onto. Something different doesn't mean you're not going to be. In business or start your own company, or but maybe this, isn't it? Maybe it is? Maybe you're just sitting there going. You know what this is going to be tough times, but I believe in this business i. know we have and we're going to keep going, so you kind of have to listen to that. You know you're got to say. Where are you? Are you? You know? Do I need to keep pushing through this, or is there something else that I need to be? Doing are exploring. It's such a weird time to because with everything going on I. Mean People are obviously doing less news less really to plan but I think there's still an opportunity and it's great that the product isn't just a manner planning out your daily activities that can also be used for intentional set goal setting in just writing down thoughts that you have journaling so I love that it's it's I town that regard Have you guys thought of ways to during this tough time? Kind of still sell your product in different ways or maybe thinking about different product lunches. Were you know what kind of has been brewing in the last few weeks, so it's like a perfect example of. Of evolving and pivoting right so like. Yes, when you're when we're looking at people that are planning your days just filled. My days were just like I couldn't even have the whole damn thinking. How tiny can I right because there's so much going on, but you know one of the other things we have in our product, minus positively journaling and guided journals, and then when you you know for us, it would be so tone deaf to be talking. Talking about we know you're busy. Let's just talk about busy busy busy schedule Hustle. Let's go because this is not the time for that, so we had to look at. What do we have in? You know in our offering. And what do we have What do we think is important or is there something else we can offer so for us? you know slowing down journaling 'cause for me. It's all about putting the pen to paper. I Love I love my. Technology and I. On my computer as well, but there's something to me about writing stuff down whether it's my schedule and prioritizing key efficient or whether it's like you know just journaling what I'm grateful for writing that down I did a whole like wellness like year in two thousand eighteen, where every single day for the entire year I journal. Like what am I feeling I thought it was going to be like more. Of a fitness thinks I like. My cholesterol is high, and I needed to lose weight, and I was going to do all these things I'm going to travel the stuff and what it became was. Oh my gosh, I'm realizing that I'm tagging my emotions now like when I would write things down the journaling became the biggest part for me is what I was feeling like I was really I felt very marginalized that meeting today, and I came home, and I think like I was going into hibernation. You know and I was angry and I was, but I was identifying my feelings. Why was I instead of just going like writing down my food log? You know it's like it wasn't helpful for me. I. Know How to eat healthy. But to realize that when I feel angry, I don't know what to do with those feelings and to eat them you know, or and I'm like an eye stuff them and I. Try and do anything in Canton. and that was like a realization for me, so we're kind of leaning into that and saying hey, right now when you're stressed or you're afraid or whatever it is that you're going through. What can you lean into? And how can you get in touch with your feelings whether it's do journaling or if you really do maybe you're a mom who is trying to work fulltime at home and also. Also home school your kids to the distance learning the. Maybe you need to be really efficient, so you need to you know. What is it that you need and listening to that? Do you need to be productive? Do you need to be kind of moving a little more inward, and then just writing it down and really getting out of your head and onto paper, so you can help process it. Yeah I need to start journaling. That is something that. I know he's for the whole year. Did you notice that it had a huge impact on? It changed the way I thought it totally and I'm the same way because I'm like I'm so famous for starting a journal. And then it's really good for like a couple weeks, and then it's empty, and I keep it and all these like you know journals that have a little bit done in the beginning, and then like I wish I could combine them all. And are they now? It's like so I just said I have never made like a year long commitment to myself I. Will I mean I will do anything for my kids. My husband, my family, my, you know the team of me me and my big ideas, but for me. It'd be like I'm always the first one to get shoved off the list and so I, said I need I was stressed because just like what you were saying. Our business was. Wildly successful that year, and the year before that but I was so stressed out. Because when you quadruple the size of your company, and you're trying to do the same things that you did before scaling it and learning how to do that so quickly is really stressful for a for a creative person who likes to do things like. As I'm inspired. And so. So dealing with that was huge, so all of these things that I saw which were gaining weight having high cholesterol, not sleeping at night, having hiring Zaidi I was thinking, it was because I'm out of shape or this and I didn't really realize accepted the journaling. which that's not what I started to do. That it was more than just that and so this journaling process just gave me. Such clarity and insight into my own feelings that I had no idea and I don't think if I if I just tried to do that at the very beginning for just a little bit I, don't think I would have. Gotten as deep because like doing it every single year someday the destroy today sucked. He knows the worst day ever and I didn't know how to see it through, but then as I got used to journaling just as an exercise every day. I learned to go. You know to just kind of. I guess like look a little deeper. Really. Shed light on stuff that I had no idea I was looking for. I feel like now. I'M GONNA. Go buy one of your journals because I'm so inspired by that by just what you said and I think that I'm someone that just keeps everything in my head and I talked to myself all day every day just. All the things that have to do all the things that should you know that are behind me? That I should have done yesterday it's that's great. I love that with you. You know you don't realize that when you're not like kind of emptying out. It's like for me I was not able to. I was not able to like think of I was kind of creatively blocked, and then I was like even motion. Lee blocked and they just didn't realize because I'm the same. I am an over thinker. I like I process everything and I just I kinda hold onto it and I get very wrapped up in my own head, and so it was just almost like an emptying of it and helps me sleep. Helped me do all that stuff, so my guys. I think you'll love it. Okay. I'm sold. journaling. Borsch, now let's talk a little bit about living intentionally, which is very much related to what we're talking about now, bite. What does it mean for you to live intentionally? And how can people cultivate a more meaningful life? Because obviously you found your passion, you work really hard at you. Know keeping your mind rate, and it seems like you're a very self, reflective person, but how how have you gotten there? I think. I've always been somebody who really likes. Growing looking inside I ask a Lotta questions of myself and. Other people like I. Try and tell my husband like I'm not really trying to psychoanalyze you. Even I would love to just get into everybody's head, but I think that there's so much we can learn. And one of the things that I have learned just by trying to grow as a person and being teachable. Has Been You. Know there's nobody in the world that is going to take charge of my life, my happiness, the things that I want that me. Matt what happens around me it doesn't you know we can all we can all be complaining about what's happening in the world with your job with your relationship, but when it really comes down to it, you're the one that's responsible for what it is. You want in your life and how happy you are. And so for me, it started with number one. I needed to. Learn how to love myself because I didn't love and accept yourself believe you're worthy of all those things, and then once you believe that those things started kind of coming into my life and a realize it's like you know. That was something that I had to really focus on. I had to work on with myself I am. We're a project, so if you go out there, and you really want a job, or you really want to start a business, or you want a relationship. You have to almost I think. Go for the life that you want with that same passion and I mean for me. It's just been about really starting to identify. What is it that you want? What is it that makes you happy? And how do you need to get that? I think that's why I'm a planner at heart, because living intentionally as really planning, you're trying to like you have to identify something first and then figure out how you're going to get it right, so it's like for me. Identifying. What makes me happy? What the name of our podcast plan? Happy Life at the Tagline for our company. Or for the for the happy planner, because really feel like you know if if for me, I need to identify what it is, that makes me happy right, and so I'm not somebody who is an Adrenalin Junkie I'm not someone who needs a lot of activity in my life, I need I need serenity a need. Calm I need a place to be creative I want to go travel I want to be with my family so when I. Start to really identify Granular Li, like what it is, that makes me happy and what I want I can easily say you know okay well. Then I am intentionally going to make the choices that get me closer to those things that I want and. It's really a responsibility. You know it's really taking responsibility for For the actions that we take and you know and I think it's empowering I actually feel like instead of going like Oh. My Gosh I'm responsible for all of these things in my life and no one's going to do about me that makes me. I think it just gives it gives me the power back to say you know. Stuff can happen all around me. Crap can just be going on like everywhere and internally I can live intentionally with what makes me happy, which what? And I can be. Responsible for especially this stuff that's going on in my head. You know so setting intentions of you know whether it's daily whether it's setting an intention for a year or whenever you're feeling like you need a little more clarity into. What am I working for I think it's a really powerful thing to do and I know sometimes when things get more popularity. They gained that whole like people in Oh. Yeah, okay. Setting intentions are doing all this, and it sounds a little Wu, and all that and I'm like it, but it really really makes a difference in how we live our lives, and the decisions that we make yeah, and it's all it all goes back to taking accountability, right and totally nine I. always talk about this on the podcast where a lot of people struggle with that I. Think they kind of have this. Poor me, mentality or you know I could never accomplish that I'm not ex- enough. I'm not educated. Enough I'm not. You know fast enough smart enough pretty enough whatever it is, and I just do I. Hope that if pe- when people listen to this episode, they really if they take anything from it. I really hope that they listen to what you just said. Because it's so powerful, that's such a like. I can't I've had a lot of things. People will ask me like well. Of course, it's easy for you to be happy because where you are today, you know and I said, but but here's what you don't understand is that? The reason I'm happy is not because I have all the things that I have the reason I have all the things that I have is because a happy positive person who believes that I have. that. What happens in my life is a result of you know of the way that I go about it and what I believe I deserve and how and then I can have those things I'm happy. And I'm positive period. Doesn't necessarily. Happy happy I just mean like I'm going to be content and positive and optimistic in my life. No matter what is going on and I have lived through a lot of things I've had like I said I shared with you. Guys had some traumatic things in my childhood that have happened I was had a child eighteen I had a lot of money issues. I'm growing up. I was in an abusive relationship with physically and mentally, and there's a have been drug abuse them I mean lots of things that I've had to deal with and. I could very easily any of those instances been. Why did this happen to me? I could never start a business because I don't have a college education and they don't have any money, and they don't have this and you know. What will people think of me and you know a? Growing and believing that you can do something, no matter what like having that resilience and having that. Like I'm just going to figure it out like I said I. It pretty much anything now I'm probably going to be more of a of a jack-of-all-trades master of none but that's okay. That's who I am, and that's really has gotten me where I'm at, but yeah. I just I think if anything I totally agree with you. If I share anything, it would be that no matter what your circumstances are in life. I think optimism and. And believing that no matter what happens to you, you will get through this, and you make something of yourself, and you can get the things that you want in life If you know if you're working, you work hard. You have to be willing to work hard. You have to be teachable if to learn to be confident, but all those things are things you can control. And it doesn't really matter what your circumstances are. So that would be something I mean. Yes. I love the product. Yes, I love our brand. Yes, I love all these other things, but that's just something that I think everyone can take with them throughout their lives. Such great life advice, and it's so true I feel like there's been looking back and reflecting on my own experiences to and the hardships that you know everyone has different forms of adversity, but how you respond and react to that is I think all the difference and I think it was a murray furlough that said everything is figure out. That just. When you said that because it's true like if you have that drive and that hustle enough to do what it is that you WanNa, do you can figure that all out and I think Alex also reiterated several times. There's this concept of just start now. Figure everything else out along the way as you go. Otherwise, you're never gonNA start. You're never going to achieve those goals but in terms of goal, setting and just organizational tips. I mean I feel like the ideal buyer of the happy planner is a very organized individual, or maybe they're aspiring to be more organized. So what are some good organizational tips just in general that people can start practicing and then apply to the happy planner. And I am not a naturally organized person. At like what you see back there on this video that we're recording over is not what it normally looks like I'm a creative person so I'm very like. Just kind of scattered and I will follow an idea like if I have an idea, I'm like I'm down that rabbit hole and. There's a chaos and mastic usually follows so being organized and using happy planner and using organizational tools is actually been essential for me to be like a productive society member of society or running a business, so one of my favorite tools and I think we kind of alluded to this a little earlier was getting things out of your head in getting him down I use a master What I call him Master Action Item List, so it doesn't matter if like you are thinking of I've gotTa. GotTa do cupcakes the Kids School I've got empty. The dishwasher I have a huge project that I'm working on. That's do every little thing. Take space up in your head and It doesn't really you know you're not really. They all have the same weight, so you're thinking constantly of the Dishwasher, the cupcakes and all of these things and you don't have the space to really think about Give yourself like. Hey, now. I'm really focusing on the project because there's so much stuff spinning in your head. And, so I think David Allen I think is his name he said you're. You're headed for having ideas, not storing them so like for me. It's like Oh, my gosh, that is so perfect so I take and had this one massive list actually I have to, but it's ones home in one's work, but usually for most people one will do and. If everything that comes out of my head is something that I have to do if it's an action item. I put it on my list and then I work from that list. Would plan my weeks when I plan my days, so I look at Monday and I think okay. I've got five meetings not lot. Stuff's going to be coming off that to do list, but on Tuesday I have one meeting in the morning and I had the whole day that I. have so I'll go off of my master list and then start working from there. I'M NOT GONNA forget my tasks that way. It's not going to be like oh shoot cupcake sting it. You have your your things that have due dates and everything so when I'm working from it I don't have fifteen sticky notes everywhere and a piece of paper that I wrote over there. That I got lost cause. I left it in my car and you're constantly then figuring out. How do I remember where it was that thing so keeping everything kind of in one place has been a big tip for me. the second organizational tip that I use I plan every Sunday I plan my week out every Sunday so or whatever the day before the start of week.' In for me. Mondays the start, so I sit down I. Take a look at what are all of the to the must do's appointments. The the deadlines that have to happen that week and get all those things in there and I. I plan everything out from date night with my husband every week. we're putting that in their first wins the time that I need one of my GonNa. Go exercise. When am I going to those put in appointments, and then I start to fill in again with things from that master to do. If I don't do that, then you know, there's things that come up and they're just time. Thief's and they come in to take in all of a sudden. You look and you've spent. Monday and you're thinking I've done nothing you know. It could be a week and you're going like shoot. There's nothing off my list. conversely you can take a look at that, and if you've been really productive, there've been times. I had no idea I could get that much done. So those are two tips for me to stay on and just to contend me. Being organized means being productive, because if I'm not productive, my stuff's all over the place. I get very easily overwhelmed, and that is not a good place for me to be. I was GONNA ask as well with with your master. Master list you add everything from like emptying the dishwasher doing laundry like every task so usually I have like if those are ongoing I will have just started doing this, which helped a lot, but all I kind of assign like if something that occurs every week for me I have a list. That's basically recurring tasks, so if you're if it's a cleaning thing, it's like an you know you've got changes sheets. You know the bathrooms or whatever I've got empty Roomba. because. Just, all those little things that are like take the trash out. Those are of things that I put off to the side which are more recurring tasks. And then when I sit down. Unday, I think you know empty room by the today's the in the evenings and do my meal planning here and those things happen all the time. The the Master List for me is you know the things that are their projects or their like like for me for my work one. It's like every time like I need to talk to him about this Call up this person and make sure I return this thing and check out on. All of the let's marketing meetings scheduled out. Make sure to reach out and so then I can cross them off. On Cross them off. And then when they're done, they're done, and of course you know once it gets to about halfway marked off at create a new list because it's prettier. And I like doing that, but yeah, the reoccurred things I keep separately. Of It, so we're GONNA. Get this all in. Your home about really what you're saying is it comes down to time management skills right, and yes, you know like you said there are some days ago by and I'm like. How did I just spent two hours scrolling through instagram? Checking emails bearing bearing myself in emails that really don't I don't need to get back to these people right away and you self reflect and go like that I see I'm busy, but to hours of that time was wasted. Time management is huge, and that was another thing that I uncovered in my memorabilia box that said think I was in like fourth grade and the teacher says like Stephanie needs to learn time management. Because it is true, because I do the same thing and I feel like there's so many times when people say I just don't have enough time and I'm thinking i. just spent four hours binge-watching. Whatever I. We. Do have the time and that's okay. If you're going, you know what I'm going to. It's going to be a binge party like I am going to be watching and It's fine but I think we need to be aware like you don't WanNa miss out on the things that you either want to be doing our need to be doing because you're not managing your time well and like I said it's a constant struggle. This is going to be something that I'm GonNa be. Be doing for my whole life. Because you know because I'm just not naturally inclined to be that way even, but it's a habit you know, and it's easier for me now, but managing your time well and scheduling it out is is a habit that we form you know, and it's just like it just becomes easier and then yeah, you find him. There's nothing to me like when I look at a list I'm like. Oh, my gosh look! How productive I was this week! That is such a good feeling when you even when you finish the day, and you're like man I was on point today like I knocked this off the list and I. Did this and you just feel good? There's just this feeling it brings. There's something about they say like an actual like I don't know what gets release, dopamine, or whatever that when you cross things off your list. That, yes, go. It is what? What are some other resources that you? You've enjoyed yourself or that? You would recommend to listeners in terms of time, management or building, good habits, organizational tools and practices. I think that like to meet. Okay decluttering. Making sure that you like you don't have because again. The more clutter at the worst and I know they say you know a messy desk or whatever they say, but the MESSI dozen. Beans or whatever and it is, but it's probably one who's just driving themselves crazy 'cause they can't find anything so developing somewhat of. Of A protocol for how you're GONNA. Plan your weeks and then also. One of the things I don't know if it's not really a resource, but it's something that I learned that. I kind of tend to first thing in the morning. I want to like answer all like you're saying I. Want to answer all my emails, and then of course I go down. Somebody's asking you know unsubscribe to all these things now and then I started subscribing, and then I go down, and so somebody told me to block off your days and at the beginning. Do the most important thing for you that you need to. To get done in the morning or whenever it is that you work I work best in the morning and freshest van, and then about three o'clock, I'm looking for anything else. I'm looking for something to snack on or any distraction and it, but some people are not also if you're like going, this is when I do my best work. Then make sure you can identify those times because you're gonNA. Find that you have. You're going to get more done. You'RE GONNA feel more efficient more. More productive and I think that's going to help I. Definitely, figure think that if you can figure out how technology and productivity work for you. I am kind of a hybrid between outlook and all of the technology that we can't. We have that really does keep us I've got when I have meetings. All my stuff is stored. I, don't WanNa. Right down the zoom. Call Identification Number and the password, and all these things you know, that's all stored in my outlook and I have a really good relationship between paper planning and my tech, you know. And then but I have a process every time I have like a nice system. I think I think that works I've been I've used a lot of productivity tools into honest with you. Nothing's really kept me more productive than just keeping it simple and planning things out and getting stuff done I mean it. It starts off great, but then it's just something else for me to. Keep track of so having something just right in my face whether it's my outlook, calendar or or my paper planner I just like I, said I've tried I've tried them all I've tried. And I know they were really well for some people, but for me it's just all about keeping it really simple and just getting stuff done. Yeah, and you know what I love the realness because we get questions, sometimes of like. How do you have a business and you work fulltime in your mind like? How do you do all the things? And I always kind of self reflect in its and I always think you know. You make time for what's important to you. That's the bottom line. We all have twenty four hours a day. I think that that hustle mentality isn't always helpful and isn't always positive, but at the same time if you have something that you want to accomplish. You just have to do it. You have to figure it out and do it. That's the bottom line. So Yeah? I love what you said on that. You know what I'd like to ask you Stephanie. If there's some sort of book or podcast or resource that you'd recommend for our followers, I don't know if you have any in mind that something that is is really impacted you in some way. Yes, so two different two different things so a book that basically just changed my life completely were was the gifts of imperfection by Bernard Brown. And it was one of those things where I just realized I don't have to be perfect I'm worthy of just the way I am, and that just really kind of just her whole. I love her so much that book. When I started to believe those things about myself, things change. They think changed in my life. They changed in my business That's why I think that no matter what you're looking at doing that. Inner work is I. Don't don't try and like. Get the promotion or getting the relationship, because you think that's GonNa make you more successful or happier, or whatever, because if you're not okay with that first step I it's all going to be empty. You know you're going to get the promotion, but it's not gonNA. Feel as great as you thought it was. Because you're. There's there's that whole in there that you're trying to fill so. That personally was amazing for me and then I love how I built this by Cairo's and. The podcast and for business. That's something that I listened to and I just. If, you're ever wanting to start a business and you think well I don't fit the typical either entrepreneur or business owner, or whatever I don't fit that mold listen to those stories there from every walk of life and every kind of story. It's so empowering to listen to them, but it's also really interesting to see how some of those people dealt with you know the setbacks, and how they how they innovated, and how they funded their businesses, and it's really interesting, and so, and they've covered just about like every aspect of business so I love those, too. Such third-rate episode actually heard how I built. This I've never listened to it, but I've heard it is great good, so that'll be one that'll that'll be added to my podcast list. podcasts our life right now in quarantine.

Georgetown's Prof JoAnn Volk Discusses Health Care Sharing Ministries
"Joanne Lemme, ask to begin. What's generally the history? or how did these healthcare sharing ministries come about? Well, they've been around for decades, and they're generally for religious communities that opt not to have insurance instead to agree to share. One another's medical expenses think of like the Amish community, rallying around to rebuild a a barn after the. Fire similarly you know folks look to their community to to offset their healthcare costs rather than enroll in insurance in the ACA when they were crafting the individual mandate that said that everyone has insurance, unless you can show a good reason not to say about affordable or some other reasons, there was an exemption created for people who are in healthcare. Sharing mysteries so long as they were enrolled in one that made us specific definition that was in. DEPORTABLE CHARACTE! Okay thank you so these. Go back quite a long while they originally a religious affiliated. My understanding is less so today, and they really became more popular over the last few decades. In fact I'll just note here in my research. It's uncertain, but it appears that as many as a million Americans now hold. one of these plans. Let's go to specifics. Relative to what you're getting or how these health care sharing ministries work, so can you generally describe? These are how they work. Well so at their core. They are not insurance, so there is no guarantee that you will get payment for any of your health care costs if he were a member, but the way they are structured, members pay monthly. Share, it's called a share monthly fee to the healthcare sharing master to be a member and then you can submit as a member. He can submit your health care bills, and so long as they meet the requirements of healthcare sharing ministry, they may be shared with other members who will either directly send a check to you or send the check to the healthcare sharing ministry to redistribute to the members who need help offsetting healthcare costs. But the trick is that It. The though it's not insurance there a lot of features that look a lot like insurance to consumers that are shopping for coverage and frankly act a lot like insurance so. Where there's a deductible in your assurance plan. They call it unshareable amount where you have to pay out of pocket. You know two thousand dollars per medical event before you can submit something for sharing the monthly contribution is to find typically by age number of people in the household and enrolled in some cases. can be adjusted based on whether or not. You have a healthy lifestyle. Were had risk factors unhealthy lifestyle There's a very specific definition of what services can be covered. You know type Beatty's, but not type one prescription drugs only up to six months no pre existing conditions will be covered without a weight dollar limits on the benefits that. That can be covered, so there are a lot of aunts and many even refer to provider network, and with ramifications for going out of network. You have to get prior authorization. You'll pay more if you go out of network so there are a lot of features that look and act an awful lot like an insurance particularly for consumers when they're looking at these documents but importantly, and I would argue it's actually not so close to short-term plans, because at least they're in their many tricks do not pay, but there is some contract between the insurer and the enrolled that there's supposed to be payment for covered services. There is never a promise to pay healthcare sharing ministry. Even if your doctor says it's medically necessary, and what you've gotten for, care is within the definition of what should be covered. Okay, so they're? They're not insurance, and they don't guarantee payment yet. You pay various fees, something that resembles a premium deductibles, etc.. So, what's the attraction why? WHY WOULD PEOPLE! participate in one of these. Well this work. It's a bit murky and I think even more so with the repeal of the individual mandate penalty I think originally there were people and there still are people who sign up for these because they don't believe in insurance, they would rather not pay their money to an insurance company, or would rather not part of a plan that covers certain things that they find morally objectionable, so I should point out that they typically exclude coverage for mental health and substance use disorder. As I said pre existing conditions, prescription drugs for more than six months so not. It's not useful to people with chronic conditions But They, so they will not cover those conditions but for consumer it looks a lot like insurance, and so there's some will by the policy. Because they don't believe it should be covering. Maternity out of me outside of marriage or something that might consider the result of unhealthy living like excessive drinking or drug use but others I think now or buying it because they see it as a more affordable alternative to aca plan, and in some cases, there are brokers in websites that are presenting them as or affordable alternative to ACA. Plan so there. They think they're getting something akin to insurance, but for a whole lot less money.

amazing some amazing stories some beautiful rhymes and we kinda wanted to get your story and the stories of the books and find out a little bit more about what motivated you and it's my understanding that Santa's dog the lucky little pop on the sled there has some homegrown homegrown found foundations right it's it's it's a story from from your from your heart it Sampson I believe is who is modeled after he is that the name lands comes from another favorite rescue dog avars that happened to be some tough times when I was writing the story but Sampson is the original Salas dark no wait a minute join are you Mrs Claus well you know I can't answer that because Mrs Claus would never answer that on a on a podcast crispy added that Jamie's point this is somewhat autobiographical can you explain that it is so when my husband Loyd to Iraq and this leads you know oh I ask you know over ten years ago we had just moved into a new house it was big house two stories was I wasn't used to it you know and so I went out and I adopted a dog without yeah and I got home this douglas wonderful he kept me safe saying I'd take him everywhere he was just the best dog ever trained I mean you name it this Husky Gorgeous asking he was an older dog and he was wearing Las Vegas and he was at a kill shelter at the time so he was like on the on the block and a Husky Tean and Vegas so he probably wanted to check out I mean it's a little warm this has gotten vegas my husband gets home and you know this D- Dog welcomes wonderful God and I realized you know Samson's having a hard time hearing like I call him in he does quite calm immediately realized so something must be wrong with this earring right because otherwise why wouldn dot com but I take them to that and that tells oh honey no hearing's fine this is typical of northern breeds they do things on their own time I never really thought about northern breed husky it just never clicked yeah he was just like the dog that I brought home anti go home and I tell my husband and this and he looks at me and he says northern major he's santer ain't GonNa wind or whatever we sketched out the story of a dog who fell from this lay on the military family I have to read the book to find out what happened but I finally ten years later Earth that story will join I gotTa tell you by your own account and I don't want to call you out during our show but I'm going to have do it sounds like he was your husband's idea now yours I like you up to that you should Lee split the royalties with them or something really bad rhymer so it's it's a great story and now it's a it's a children's book it touches on the plight of shelter dogs at soldiers going in deployed and you know it's a very real story for a lot of people it's a and I'm sure you've gotten some feedback that indicates same oh absolutely in fact last year we worked a little bit with loose our families and you know it's an organization that helps the families that military personnel when they're deployed and so we donated simple for them for their Christmas gatherings you know with the families and then this year we're working with the Yellow Ribbon Association Yellow Ribbon Organization and the day to day help military families so in addition to working with rescue dogs Israeli you know where my heart is this book just offers us the opportunity to also help military organizations in family and you know and the chiltern so it's a really good thing well if I can just you little synopsis of the Book I don't know if you read it man yes I read it okay so the the book well if you if you hadn't so play along if you hadn't just basically Santa is a crappy pet owner he leaves his dog the dog the dog is not microchip they can't find them and then the shelters dopey shelter within twenty four hours adopts it out to another family I mean what's I know it's a very sweet story I'm just I'm playing with you join suspended belief for okay so Joanne looking at the illustrations I like the illustrations there are a little different there stylized there would a man would you call them Auburn they remind me there's an artist here in Detroit slot is reminiscent of that so ed is is the illustrate later on this how did you ed connect and and and how does the process of of Ed illustrating your stories work yeah the illustrations are very unique wonderful to work with Yeah Santa's talk was my first story First Children's book that I've done so I didn't know what I was getting into quite frankly when I started this right more from the heart and so I actually found it online I searched illustrators for days weeks and just trying to find one that I liked and everything I had is at work and you know do you have time for me that kind of thing in connected with ad and we talked and it just and they were they were just so wonderful they were right on the mark and so we went back and forth and tweaked things here and there but overall he was he decided he was very easy to work with which is also why he did my second book in this series called Carols quest for courage when I was a kid I re- remember this very very clear clearly there are books few books that I hated simply because I didn't like the illustration I've always been partial to really good friendly warm illustrate in a in a children's book and this is one of those books you look at it yeah I I'd bring us home to my kid because it just it's it's really really well done the UH you know it's it's written in a poetic verse you know and the kids will love and it's a it's a great story about dogs and you know maybe from the dogs perspective how they perceive being re homed there's little things in the illustration sometimes we actually makes you look a little bit deeper into the story itself like I'm one of the pages you have to actually gopher so are there any are there any Easter eggs in there anything Haydn in the story a couple of things and each book and and we figured out how to get him into the second one so we'll keep on doing that and even just the front page where with the placing with ah in that book and so so that's good to hear he's giving me a lot of other dogs to choose from with some really cool names like not me other holiday themed book it is Carol You know Christmas Carol Carol is Santos Dogs Jane but she's afraid to sing in public ah we will we will find out and then so another another one of your features I just love the the name of this one is a second chance Sam king the junk yard yeah that was so because I felt bad I didn't use hymns name Santa's dog 'cause I leased land well but he gets a doctor he has a and he's GonNa shelter and nobody wants him because he's older dog which is fairly realistic you know a lot of most most puppies get adopted really quickly from shelter and the older dog's not so much and so then this man with a cane come with older man comes around and says hey you know looks like it might be a good match and you take Sam home and so Sam has big ideas of what home is if you yard word kids running around this big huge mansion yard and he's all excited and he gets to this tiny strack next to John's yard but doc to read the story but in the end fan fines his purpose and his his love his place Alright Joanne worker people find find.

"Okay. So here's the scoop. This is gonna be a weird riddle ready. Okay. Go. It may be true that they provide you that programming for free. Okay. But they're stealing it, and then you in turn receiving stolen programming. Okay. So this is similar to the black box thing that I think was there during the late eighties early nineties, except now they're doing it with full bore high death and getting you all kinds of programming that maybe you don't even have rights to that. You're able to watch. So this has been something there are perhaps several million people in the United States that are using these boxes to steal programming. I see and it's different than your remember? There was a highly publicized stuff where the music industry was going after individuals for a while there were stealing music. Yes. I remember that. Well, nobody seems to be doing that about these pirate boxes yet. Which is. Yeah. So people are doing it. I've had talked about it before I've been so negative about the pirate boxes and all people come up that are just so insulted by that and they're mad at me. And why would I be trying to help out the cable company, and I'm like, you know, it's not about helping out the cable company. It's about that getting the content for free. Just isn't right. Correct. So I would just keep deleting the emails receiving, but that's your choice. I understand there's risk involved. Well, I'm not even sure there's that much risk. You know, it's kinda thing that very small number of people will ever be prosecuted. But it's just it's ill-gotten gains to stay that program. And something else you can do is if you will be disloyal to who you're with. Now, you mentioned the GOP Lee, there's very few choices. Because people are getting rid of their pay TV subscriptions and going to streaming. No. They're cutting the cord or dialing back on it. It's become far more competitive, even in a not very competitive industry that if you put people into competition with each other you may be able to lower your costs a lot in legitimately have pay-tv that makes perfect sense in our house. We use sling dot com. Yes. That's one of the six that I read briefly up on. Yes. And I've been happy with that. Okay. Who live is getting extremely positive reviews. Okay. So it's who live YouTube TV, very good, and there will be continuous refinement and improvement in this area. Okay. And the costs are so much cheaper than a traditional cable or satellite package. The big problem is if you're in a data cap. With whoever provides your internet. You're gonna blow through that data cap pretty quickly. If you get all your TV from stream. Brian is with us on the Clark Howard show. Hi, brian. Hey, how are you? Great. Thank you, Brian. You are a fellow landlord. Are you not? I am. Yeah. Yes. I am. And you and Nubian it or have you been doing it for a while? So I have one rental property, and I had just gotten into a second one, and sort of looking at the insurance a little closer and comparing quotes, and sort of having questions the first time around I was, you know, little more recklessness supposed to now little more concern. So that's kinda wear him. And had a question for you today. I'm ready. All right. So I have to quotes one for actual cash value and one is four replacement costs. And I kind of spent the close to the comp- each competitor to see you know, what the difference wasn't if they could beat the price, and they both broke back with a kind of lengthy explanations. As to why their insurance is better than the others for the current rate. Really? Yeah. So. So I was kind of like, okay, great, no price reduction. But what's the veteran? Sure that I am still kind of actively talking to them. But I haven't found the right answer yet replacement value coverage, I have a big bias for. Okay reason is that when you look to rebuild something the cost of rebuilding will be higher than the market value of that property. When our home when a home is built usually particularly visit production built community where you know. They're doing active building in an area the cost per square foot of that build is far far lower than rebuild or even building an individual home. And let's take new construction versus an existing property, which your rentals or existing properties. Construction costs are so much higher per foot than the market value of that property as it sits today that making sure you have coverage that will rebuild it at the prevailing cost to rebuild you from being terribly exposed in the event of a catastrophic loss to the property, right? Okay. So so when I when I get a quote for replacement costs. One hundred percent replacement costs. It's okay that it's higher than the actual cash value costs. I mean, it's you're getting more for your money, essentially, absolute, absolutely. Because if somebody insures you for only the value, they say, oh that home would sell for give me a figure. Ninety thousand dollars that home would sell for ninety thousand dollars. So we're going to insure you for ninety thousand but the reality is if you have a significant loss or full walls on that home, and you go to rebuild it. You're never going to be able to rebuild it for ninety. Exactly, exactly. So that's why policy that covers your rebuild cost is key to you being properly insured that terrific. What thank you so much of the clarification, it's a little bit of a weight off my shoulders song knew about it. One. Other thing is once you make sure you have plenty of liability coverage you have a number for that for injuries. I have three hundred thousand dollars. I think as a liability is not enough that may not be enough. Because here you are this is success tax. You now have to rental properties. See me of your own home. Probably have other assets. You wanna make sure that if there's a serious? Issue that happens at one of your rental property. Somebody gets hurt are whatever that they don't see you into poverty. Very good. And so look at something known as an umbrella insurance policy that sits above the liability coverage you have in your life. They're relatively cheap policies to buy. And it provides you that kind of coverage in the event that there is an unlikely, but what could be very expensive of vent happening in your life ni-nice early. Just at one of those two rental properties JoAnne joins us on the Clark Howard show. Hi, JoAnne, high court, thanks for taking my call, absolutely JoAnne. How can I be of service to you today? Okay. I just wanted to ask a question about the five nine plans versus a Roth IRA. Hopefully, it's going to college at the end of the school year. But we also we are raising grandson and open to five t nine plants for him. And we contribute to it mostly to at credit union. And I was wondering since we will be close to comedy. We get off to college. If it would be better to put the money into a Roth IRA as opposed to a five to nine in case, he decides to the doesn't want to go to college. Yes, I much prefer you funding your own Roth IRA, and you know, you along with millions of other Americans right now are raising grandchildren, and it's causing a cash squeeze on people and a year you can't figure out. What should I be doing? Do. I need to be putting this money aside for my own retirement. What do I do about our grandson's college grandchild's college? And so what I read. Recommend is that you go the Roth route, and that's where your emphasis should be. And your grandson has a lot of different options had to acquire that education candy colleges, so affordable and in many states now community colleges or issuing four year degrees bachelor's degrees. Wow. Oh, wow. I didn't know night that. So is there any like once we reached that age? Is there any like limits to how much money you can pull out at one time in a Roth IRA? No, see that's the beauty with a Roth is that you once you're at retirement eligible age you can pull out as much as you wish. And there's no consequence at all, tax wise. I mean, you can. And I talk about this frequently use Roth money to help a child new year case grandchild pay for college, but I wouldn't want you to treat that as a high priority because I need you to make sure you have sufficient funding for your own retirement. Yeah. And it's always important the right because there are no scholarships and retirement. Absolutely. That's a shame. As an I it is, isn't it? Is to since we have this five tonight for him. Can we just notify the plan and just tell them that we want to close it out, and they will send us. No, you don't. Okay. So the plan you have you probably want to leave the money that's in there. And there L okay and going forward because you don't want to trigger a taxable vet Willie my out of the five twenty nine now. Okay money. You would put aside forward. I would do Roth IRA. Oh, okay. Perfect. Thank you so much. And if you're over age fifty you each are allowed to put sixty five hundred into a Roth IRA wall. Cecilie? Okay. Thanks much day. Sorry. Best to you. Thanks. Glad you're with us here on the Clark Howard show, where it's about you learning ways to keep more of what you make is humbling when someone comes up to me who's in his or her. Early middle age, and they say I used to listen to you when I was his Asia her age, they got their kids in tow. And I realized I've been doing this a long long time since the mid nineteen eighties in so over. One and a half generations. I've been answering your questions related to your wallet. Producer Kim, our executive producer recently went through this sound funny to you. But we used to keep notes handwritten notes in a book of wet topics. We were dealing with on the show. What advice I was giving on major topics and had quite a trip down memory lane looking through and was looking at the things that came up as questions from listeners, which we track manually every question someone called in with in what we're big things that people called about that they? Never call about anymore or the company. They were calling about doesn't even exist anymore. Number one is the most common question that Kim saw in the book was people calling to complain about junk fees from blockbuster. Think about that. If you're younger, you're like block what?

See, of course, there could be bad people among them as there could be in any group of people you see walking down the street. One of them might be bad. What you're saying? Is you think Trump with the whole thing together himself to make a political issue? No are people who think that? Oh my God. No. That sounds like bag that sounds like a left wing exactly theory. No, no. I think it's real. And he knows how to whip up his base in immigration was the biggest issue. I think that helped get him in and. And now, he's pretending. They're at invading force. I mean, he keeps calling it invasion. They can't get past anything. You never know. They'll apply for asylum, and they'll either get it out. And I assume most of them won't, and especially if Trump's genius people at the border can identify them as bad people. I mean, it's absurd. We're not being invaded and then fifteen thousand troops Doug Saltzman, if indeed that could just be rhetoric from grand going, I have no idea. But in the Washington Post today, Greg Sargent wrote a piece that so much flying by that much of the obvious doesn't occur to me for a few days that it should. And that is that if Democrats take out they should investigate that you're sending fifteen thousand troops to the border more than we have from what I read today, fighting ISIS more than we have in Afghanistan for a couple of thousand people fleeing injustice, most of them at any rate. I mean, and is you know, the rules of engagement they they can't do anything but assist right unless they throw rocks. And then apparently, the president is going to give them permission to shoot. It will. Anyway, do you find the whole thing is a political stunt absurd? Because they really should if the house if the house was taken over by Democrats in quite a waste of if it's a political stunt that is quite a west waste of taxpayers money to send fifteen thousand troops. If I'm right that it's political stuff that I had no problem with sending some troops because you're going to have this many people coming to the border, and I don't understand what will they do. There's plenty of ways to get across the border people. Do it every day and this number. It's not like they're coming to immigration processing centers. And we don't really know that. I would hope I if you can't you can't get across the border.

You make it a, you know, you're more on the the the worldwide left side of this issue as far as immigration fringe. I think it's better. Guy. You have a lot of Democrats, including a lot of black people who don't think that illegal should be in this country. I don't think it should be in the country either. I don't think we should send fifteen thousand troops when there's no threat to the country. It's a political stunt. It's a waste of money leave please allow me finish. I don't know what you have not been seeing, but you have had people in in this caravan fighting with Mexican police and troops falling rocks at them. And in in Mexico says I will give you a silo they say, they don't want it. If if you're making statements that point if you say, you're fleeing something in your in your country that you escape and you get to a country and says, okay, we will give you a silent. And you say no, then that's going to hurt your cause. And in the imagery, you're trying to make John period. And this is why green hardly with Donald Trump. And I myself for doing it that is one of his main jobs to secure our borders. Thank you. He's not doing this to secure the border. Anthony, he's doing it as a big fat publicity stunt. He's acting like we're being invaded by a gang of a horrible Hispanic terrorists. That are going to steal our children and eat our dogs. Now, I'm against dog eating I want to make that perfectly clear, but I know you're an eight dog. How can you be against it? Muslim days was put the dog away roof that Mitt Romney put him on the roof. And then they found out Barack Maeve eaten which is perfect. And also they threw rocks at the Mexican police. Oh, that's practically Ozama bin Laden. Also. I don't even know if that's true. I've just heard Trump say it. I haven't seen reported. Yeah. All right. That's been reporting. And I don't know what the circumstances are. And I don't have the Mexican police engage them unnecessarily, and they felt their only defense was to throw rocks. Now, have you had that if there's two thousand of them were fifteen hundred of them throwing rocks or three I think that many people coming to the border insisting they're coming into the United States and don't wanna be properly processed and you have to stop them. But no one has reported that they're not coming in properly. They're intent. They're going to do it appropriately either. So you have to take proper there to seek asylum. And for everything I've read most people don't get asylum like ten people apply to get that's not a real number. I'm just not even that high. Well, okay, then so most of them, I guess, they don't think they're gonna get it. Then they're probably not gonna try to get it. Now, they are going to try to get at least I thought that was their stated intention. There's a lot of people coming in. They're not even they're not going, right? We don't need. We don't know. I agree with that. But we don't know if they're not there. This week. I'm tired of that. There's no evidence that they're dangerous, and there's no evidence that they're not. Yes, there is the fact that the dangerous. Nobody's proven just as dangerous. We of course, it's dangerous. Of course, it is. It's stupid. They should have been arrested for attacking police. Why didn't they arrest of in Mexico? Exactly why they let them in because they know that they don't have to worry about him 'cause you're not interested in stained Mexico. But you know, that Trump is making he's making it up because he has zero proof that there's anybody dangerous in there. And he says it like he knows it. And he doesn't know it. I know people there's some pretty rough people you can just tell by the way, they walk is some pretty rough people in there. Well, I agree with the comments the president is not making any sense at times. But we don't know what these people are planning to do once they get to the border. They're not. But I think we can assume that since most of the ba- refugees fleeing fleeing piece of fleeing persecution that they're not here. We know that. I don't know that take a look at the pictures on the internet. But most of them are women and children k what we don't. I don't find. Usually that most terrorists are women and children. I don't mean. None of them are right. But they usually men in this country. They're white men, obviously. Like, the guy who shot up, the squirrel hill synagogue. Who lived half a mile from my house is that right guy passes apartment every day, man. All right. Let me go back to phones. We will get to you momentarily rich in south bend, JoAnne has been holding longer in point breeze. Hi, JoAnne, high who hopefully there's a couple of points. I wanna make when I heard that guy talk about how much he his insurance as well, sir. I'm paying about three hundred dollars a month for my insurance. And you know, I I can't understand why these people are so angry. They have their man in the White House. They have their man their people in in federal the Senate and the house, and they're still screaming and hollering about a few people coming into this country. Who's who's they're not gonna let all those people in here. It's just a political ploy by this. This man this president that keeps nonsense going, and he knows he has a lot of unhinged sun hits people, and they don't have commonsense. The other thing I wanted to say to your guess what's going on that I hear that they want to. Take about five percent, if not more which is a lot out of the veterans budget, which is ludicrous to even touch that they need to take texture own salaries, JoAnne. Thanks, you mentioned that last night. And I'm not saying, it's not true. I just haven't heard anything about it yet. And even if somebody is proposing it it sounds like there are a lot of legislative loopholes to go through before. They can I don't see that happening. Yeah. Anytime soon I heard that anywhere is like. These threat. I've looked it up. And I don't know what that's about. And I'm not also the spokesperson for them. Whoever them are play. The spokesman after all these bad people who want to cut the money, buddy. Who's brad? Spokesperson. Although, you know, I mean, you must be talented because that would be pretty tough gig.

Do you think he's running for president Iowa a red meat speech to to the base that he got a sort of his star turn in the cavenaugh hearings as one of two two or three possible? Presidential candidates on the Senate Judiciary committee that was sort of a very caffeinated speech. It's sort of doing it. Oh, by me. I think he was trying to rally the base and come up with a national message for for Iowa voters who are the Democrats at least are hungry for change Booker is someone who is going to be a little little too hot. You know that that Obama did? So well in Iowa that was his launching pad in two thousand eight Booker maybe trying to build a similar coalition while we're on the topic of New Jersey. There's a story in the New York Times this morning talking about Bob Menendez Senate race questioning whether how secure is currently why would you parse that Menendez because ethical issues is he should be coasting. It's a competitive race. Ultimately, though when you have a Blue Wave in a democratic state, like New Jersey, it's hard to see how Menendez doesn't win another term. It's just the environment is just so good. And New Jersey is going to be one of the there at least three house races in New Jersey that Democrats are likely to pick up. I mean, that's an environment. That's probably going to help. Menendez win. Another term, Debra. Pratt's line from John in Ohio. Hello. Hi, I just wondered if climate change will be a big issue in any of these races. Thank you. You know, it's a question that a lot of a lot of liberal activists want one one the care about. But it's not coming up in democratic campaigns for the most part Tom Steyer for one is funding. Certain candidates included in Florida with Andrew gillum running for governor. But if you look at the messaging on the airwaves Democrats are talking about healthcare. I mean, they're not talking about the environment. They're not talking about climate change. So all it does you goes energize a lot of base voters at energizes younger democratic voters. You're not seeing it as a huge issue in democrat campaign viewer. One veer off a Twitter says any politician that won't publicly support Medicare for all will not be getting my vote. Does that topic even come up anymore? Well. A lot of Democrats are now embracing a more liberal vision of healthcare, whether it's Medicare for all whether it's single payer Medicare for all the sort of safe all that a lot of democratic candidates of all stripes us and Republicans are trying to raise the specter of of socialized medicine. I mean, that's that's the attack that Republican candidates are employing, but healthcare, I think over half. There was a study that showed about half of all the democratic ads in the country are focused on healthcare healthcare was an issue that drove Republican majorities in the house in two thousand ten and in the Senate in two thousand fourteen Republicans were running on healthcare. And then it was giving them a huge advantage. The tables have turned dramatically and Democrats now especially on the issue of protections for people with preexisting conditions. That's an issue that they're driving home. Josh Kraushaar with this with us from national journal. He's political editor here to talk about the November elections from Minnesota independent line. Mike alot? Hi, I was just curious in my lifetime. I'm sixty years old. Every time I go to work for somebody. And they pay me. I'm expected to do what they want me to do. Now. We've got congressmen and women and senators that are working for us the people who don't give a damn what we say what we want. They just vote. So that they can be reelected now. How do they get away with this? Well, I I would argue that a lot of members are just simply voting based on on the mood of their constituents, and we live in a very polarized time. We live in a very polarized environment. So they're if you're a Republican, you're moving further to the right? If you're a democrat, you're moving further to the left, so I don't think it's because of money or campaign donations. I just think we live in a very tribal time and the political incentives for both sides are to play to the extremes. More than the play the middle from North Carolina Democrats line Mary. Hello. You're next. Seven years old. Traveled all over the world and the way to. I do not like. I do not like the way it happens day democrat to behave the same thing. Dave. Bulleting straight Republican take it. Thank you so much. There is some of this negative colorization that we've seen in the light of the cavenaugh confirmation fight that voters think that even if they're not fans of Trump, they disliked the Democrats behavior the the rush to condemn cavenaugh that they're voting Republican regardless. I don't think it's going to have a major impact, I think Republicans generally vote, Republican Democrats, generally, get democrat. But there is a worry that that Democrats went a little too far to the left and appealing to their base over cabin on that could bring some Republicans back home while we're in the south. Let's talk about the governor's race there in Georgia, featuring a female black candidate how she doing that Stacey Abrams. How is she doing competitor competitor? Stacey abrams. Very close race against the secretary of state Brian Kemp. What's making this Abrahams race fascinating is that she's talking about a campaign, which she focuses on an rallying new voters rallying the democratic base instead of appealing to swing suburban voters around the Atlanta suburbs. And then you had Brian camp coup. What is primary against that down a governor because he appealed to got an endorsement from Trump appeal to the Trump wing of the party. And now he's trying to run to the middle and try to appeal to the center both sides are trying to figure out how do you get the centrist voters? This is a race. It's going to go down to the wire you make you have a runoff in Georgia you need to get fifty percent of the vote to win outright because a third candidate on the ballot. So it's very very possible that we could have overtime in Georgia that that rates may not be decided on election day, many states in the United States are ruled by Republican governors. How could this set of elections change that when it comes to governors races particularly in the mid west? There's a democrat Democrats are going to get a lot of pickups in those governorships. So Scott Walker for example, in in very serious trouble in his bid for another term. We talked about the Iowa governor's race. With Kim Reynolds. That's a race. The Democrats are optimistic about Michigan. Gretchen Whitmer is looking like a clear favorite in that governor's race there. Minnesota is looking like a democratic hold that with with Tim walls as the nominee. So the midwest which was a region where Trump did so well, I mean picked up Wisconsin, Pennsylvania. Michigan those states have reverted back to their democratic form. And I think we'll see that take place on the governor's race in California. I will hear next from JoAnne high Republican line. I wonder if he can clarify I'm so perplexed by district, California, forty nine lives der Leisa. I see lots of aunts with the democrat Levin nothing for the Republican hockey. And I I hope be nationally pelicans haven't forgotten us here. Well, I have some bad news. I think that that raises moving the Democrats way. Mike Levin has lead in a lot of the public and internal polls hockey is not getting the support from Republican groups because they think that raises is not particularly winnable. So you know, it's still competitive enough. But that's a raise at leans in the democratic column, and you're probably not gonna see too many more ads outside Republican groups is immigration in issue. This time around big issue, especially on the Republicans are running on cultural issues, you saw that Ted Cruz ad earlier that that's a familiar theme and a lot of these Republican advertisements. But but at the same time Democrats feel like the Trump administration's overreach on border security on splitting up families who come across the border. They feel like that's going to propel a lot of energy and turn out on their side as well. We'll show you a little bit of the bait that took place in Detroit from the w the new show flashpoint. This was represented, Mike. Bishop Republican in Michigan debating Elissa Slatkin, the topic I immigration that about the border wall. Here's some of that debate. Raleigh is not when you say, well, you suggest that it's a structure across what we need is a secure border. There are places along our border that have a unique spot for a wall. But there is technology that would allow us to create a barrier. That is equal tool wall. And I think we need to invest in that I when I hear well, I understand what people are saying we need to secure our borders to ensure that we have proper immigration to ensure that we don't have a direct flow of drugs, and and trade of of sleep traffic back and forth with human beings. I think we have to do whatever we can to secure borders should ice be a part of that. Absolutely ice is important part of what we do. And you know, the color solution would be to have no no borders at all or like, my opponent's party has proposed get rid of ice and support sanctuary cities. And that's not common sense. I don't have the opponents party here. But I have your opponent. What are your thoughts? It's just a another example just to respond to where I am a different person than this sort of stereotype that mister Bishop likes to put out there of every democrat whether he's talking about Pelosi, whether he's talking about my party as someone who served her country. Let me say unequivocally that I believe ice should exist. And she continued to fill out to carry out its mandate, just like any other service and border force should and we're not all the same. We're very different people and as much as he'd like it to be the opposite in terms of immigration listened the system is broken. Right. We can be clear on that and immigration is a national security issue. It is an economic issue, and it's a moral issue. Right. I served in my entire life trying to protect this country from attacks homeland attacks. So I feel very strongly that we need to enhance security at our borders wall. I don't believe a while makes sense, but more technology and more border agents. Yes. Mr. cross our well this is a race. We're Democrats are getting very optimistic about their chances of feeding a very well entrenched incumbent, Mike, Bishop a slogan as you see in that in that clip, the democrat, she's a national security background. She worked in the administration on national security issues. So she's credentialed in a way that a lot of other that other democratic candidates aren't and she's also struck a much more moderate message as you see there versus the national party. So she's done a very good job inaugurated herself from these attacks that she's too liberal that she doesn't she's not able to represent a swing district like the one Bishop represents. That's that's a race that the Republicans are getting more concerned about that think it's fair to say that smoking has a slight advantage at this point. And it's one that sort of ties in all the themes of why Democrats are doing so. Well, a a woman running for congress is doing raising a lot of money and running to the middle of a lot of these big national security and immigration issues to women running for the retiring Jeff flake seat, that's represented Martha mcsally..
