"Three hours and radio your with Brian Kilmeade very dangerous precedent because what what they're doing what they're saying is basically what we have enough to prove our case that's what that's what measures ships as but not really so we really need more evidence not because we need it because we want to but we don't want it bad enough when we were in the house so we didn't get it so now you issued a subpoena and then let's took it out in court and see what happens sounds like to me if this is the acting like this is some municipal traffic court proceeding it is crazy and J. circles test but really what what witnesses you got seventeen what it's supposed to be continuing to try the it was supposed to examine the case was given up and Dominique she's here Ben I think that they made a very strong case yesterday barring any bomb shell do you think if I saw you Friday in the bard had some happy hour which was beyond this is just a matter which one you'll be talking about it being over I think we're gonna be talking about it being the either either over or this is the this is the ninth inning I mean it's just there's there is no real what path forward for the people who have been trying to make the case for this and they're gonna have to deal with the consequences politically of botching this whole process twenty twenty Joe Biden is in front of me and the more you watch in the more you have to be concerned the latest example yesterday in Iowa is talking about a running mate cut twenty six for me it has to be demonstrated that whoever I take two things one is capable of meeting being president because I'm an old guy okay I'm in good health but you never know good good report it could very good point right I'm I'm running against him I might say that but for Joe Biden is say I'm an old guy kind of an interesting tact look the the Biden campaign I think is actually really struggling I think that they're much weaker than people might think by looking at the poll numbers look Bernie Sanders is going to win Iowa I'm I'm just I'm happy to put the money down on that even though I was mine with polizia I feel stronger about that than I do about the Superbowl I think this is a situation where Bernie on the ground has been working toward this for more than four years and keep in mind the unique nature of Iowa which is that it's a very difficult state to pull because of the possibility of frankly you show up to these caucuses and other people can publicly convince you with not a private vote they can reach out to you and say this is why you need to vote for my guy it also rewards places you know candidates who have staying power among the people who can stay there for a long time and you also have to meet certain thresholds for your candidate to remain in the voting threshold that I think at this point Elizabeth Warren is not going to me which I think will benefit Bernie all of that sets up a situation where I think you're gonna see a big freak out from Democrats over the next couple of weeks running through South Carolina at the end of the month looking at a situation where Joe Biden looks like a much weaker candidate they might be tempted by Michael Bloomberg they might look at other options but because they are terrified of running Bernie Sanders against the president but for those people on a marginally Bloomberg yeah and the national poll running we all took as two hundred twenty million dollars which I know is that cheapo to try to myself he's got ten percent of the vote in the national poll I he was it five one month ago by it's got twenty six Sanders twenty three Warren fourteen then Bloomberg so mayor Pete everybody else to trailing also important things like New York magazine came out and said how scary and disastrous Bernie Sanders would be others becoming as he would have disastrous the problem is the young spirit in the party of A. O. C. and the squad that's fine bird yeah New York magazine examples perfect because that that's an article written by Jonathan Jay who is notorious for being bad at predicting the future in terms of in terms of a writer on the left I think that Bernie Sanders has a lot more momentum than people are giving him credit for I think that Democrats and at the national level in Washington have written him off of for far too long he is consistently in pulling from morning consul going back several years ranked as the most popular member of the Senate and and people just a forgotten about that it's like you snuck up on but but by now by other senators you the Hillary Clinton's right nobody likes him and he's never accomplished anything you know it's true we know it's a call to let you know what I feel that so insulting and here's and here's why look you know Bernie I I worked in the in the Senate briefly several years ago for for John Cornyn from Texas obviously you know my father in law is is John McCain and that gives me a little bit of insight into the way that relationships work with other senators everybody likes Bernie he's one of the everybody on the Republican side got along with him and the reason is he is very up front he's very authentic he won't lie to you he'll tell you what he's going to do even if you think it's crazy and other Republicans respect that because the view that as a situation where they can be honest brokers in a relationship not someone who's trying to distance wait we started jamming some his programs what is the actually done and where is his wife's money the whole thing therefore destroyed a college along the way it's it's it's totally.

"AM eight twenty NPR news and the New York conversation the back with you now in the take away I'm tens innovator and I've been speaking about how politicians are trying to connect with Latino voters ahead of the twenty twenty election with Jonathan Jay's green national director of Latin X. out reach for the Elizabeth Warren presidential campaign so Jonathan polling suggests that when it comes to support among Latino voters Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders two white guys are beating Elizabeth Warren what does that tell you so this is senator Elizabeth Warren's first presidential campaign so I think I so I'm thinking about how we're introducing her to our people actually like what I've loved is that every time I talk to the penal annex people about centerless with worn her record and her policy plants they love her so I think of my job is making sure and all of our jobs really is not just on me it's on the entire team to make sure that we're introducing center weren't working unities and again because of the wounds that we've had before a takes a while to establish trust and that's why we're so focused on doing that when you say wounds what do you mean I mean I think there's many many ways in which people have felt like percent honest rations campaigns have taken our communities for granted I like I I I were not blind to that fact right and I know that you know being center wanted like being someone who's not you know was not at the not you know so that there's a lot of that is not wishing trust any set of Kerr and I think that people need to know who are listening to this interview that center one is is committed to one the establishing trust but also the accountability there's been many examples where in this campaign trail like you know we've put out plans that every time we put on a plan we talked to communities before your old out of for example maybe a month or so ago I we pull that provided by metal trusses plan and that was really important for us to do this we talked about the green new deal which is super important were all there but also we have to be realistic and talk about the fact that often times with communities of color that I bore the brunt right of the requirements when justice as a how do we center people of color Latinos black people communities of color in that fight right so I think to be able to talk even talk to them about ten to them about like what do they want to see you know there's so many once about like being taken for granted I think that's that let me know so in so many ways unfortunately when it comes to the political P. says only comes of people from the outside so I think that's one of the things that were also keeping in mind a word that's come up in political campaigns is his span during just things that feel very deliberately heavy handed yeah how do you avoid his spam during to this community I think it's less about this country more about like just actually just being able to connect because people understand that the odds of have been stacked against them they understand that we need big structural change trade and she not only talks about like yes with the tax the wealthy and you know how to make him pay their fair share right but then she also talks about what can we do once we actually have a tax code that better reflects our values and that means investing in public schools investing in childcare so when we talk about the issues that people really care about in a way that's accessible in a way that we get an accessible my means manage but might actually there's a lot of communities that you know most of our communities bilingual and it'll actually quite a lot of folks who don't speak Spanish hi Leon Castro exactly so that I think that why he really helps is sort of bring it all together right to and like he he he breeding and if you saw the crowd last night do you know just like so many I was working the selfie lined with Hammond center warned it everything every time I keep hearing like someone come up to them just like thanking him and her for being together people keep mentioning thirteen twenty five look at mentioning like the incredible things that he's done and I think you know her message was the same if he's if you heard it last night she talked about corruption how we're gonna you know level the playing field for working people she talked about a taxing you know either the wall tax you talked about the same things that that affect everyone parade and like that's how we're able to make it more than tech Jonathan Jay's green is the national director of let the next out reach for Elizabeth Warren Jonathan thanks for joining us thanks so much for having me January first March fifty years since the passage of the national environmental policy act legislation established the broad framework to ensure the federal government takes into account the environmental impact of federally funded projects but on the laws anniversary president trump wasn't in a celebratory mood instead he released a statement arguing that the actors complex difficult to navigate and leads to high costs and delays the administration has proposed changes to the act were federal agencies would no longer have to take climate change into account when planning for future infrastructure projects joining me now is Lisa freedman a reporter on the climate desk at the New York times Lisa welcome to the take away thanks for having me so it sounds like a pretty major change to this role is it it's a pretty major change to a pretty major law not a lot of people know who the father it's not as as well known as you know the Endangered Species Act of the clean air act but if you've ever had port built in your town or a road widened or a pipeline going through your community you know need that because this is the law that requires an environmental review an environmental assessment of it every major federal project how is climate change factored into the environmental review process now for infrastructure projects and if that's removed what would that mean there's actually a number of changes that are going to be released later today let me back up and say that the the regulation self we're told it's not going to use the words climate change what it's going to say is that agencies do not have to consider what's known as the cumulative effects or or in packs of of new infrastructure and in recent years courts have interpreted that to mean the government needs to study whether this project will itself in mid or or lead to a significant increase of greenhouse gas emissions which will help to warm the planet into the atmosphere on the other hand it also requires that agencies study whether a project will be threatened by climate change to be clear this is a proposed change to the act what has to happen next need a is the law itself it can only be changed by Congress what the administration is proposing are changes to the regulations that guide the implementation of the law this is a proposed regulation change there will probably be a a sixty day period where the public can comment and the White House is certainly looking to put out a final rule before the election it'll be tight but it you know it folks seem to think that can be can be done after that it's it really is going to be lawsuits city so it's going to be a long road there's a question of whether this will hold up in court it will certainly be challenged but once these rules are finalized later at the end of the year it will go into effect and unless it is successfully challenged Disney but actually have any enforcement Mecca Ms in terms of how it informs the public or actually prevents bad things from happening in the environment yes to the first part noted the second under nepa a project can the Horton the environments but what nepa requires is that the public be informed that a project may harm the environment and it outlines various options agencies are required to offer various options for how it will proceed with the project from the lowest impact to the highest it could choose a route that significantly impacts the environment but what Nita does is ensure that the public knows what's happening why does the trump administration want to change this rule it's been very controversial for a very long time neat but has been used by environmental groups to challenge projects time and time again the administration when they unveiled their proposal will point to projects that have taken many many years to be completed because of the need to process you know in many many conservatives have have complained that this process is long and bureaucratic and arduous and stifles economic development over the years you felt that you know by middle groups have agreed that need the can often be cumbersome they argue that it ultimately though fundamentally safeguards wildlife their habitat and broadly the you know the environment and the client Lisa freedman is a reporter on the climate desk at the New York times Lisa thanks so much thank you so much.

"The board center a little bit more we enhanced through there at a rally in Brooklyn New York on Tuesday night a long flight democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren Castro ended his campaign for president last week throwing his support behind Warren soon after Castro had been the only Latino politician in the twenty twenty race and now warrants team is hoping that having Castro on board will help close the gap with Latino voters not these yes Telemundo poll from late October show Joe Biden with the support of twenty six percent of Hispanic Democrats nationally Bernie Sanders with eighteen percent and Elizabeth Warren with ten percent all other candidates were below five percent Latino voters are increasingly an important part of the electorate in the twenty eighteen mid terms of you know voter turnout nearly doubled compared to the twenty fourteen mid terms and nearly seventy percent of Latinos voted for Democrats at the same time Latino activists often criticize the left for taking their communities for granted here's Clarissa Martinez deputy vice president at needles US speaking on the take away back in July you have candidates and campaigns that are not necessarily doing their homework in reaching out to this community and simply take it for granted and or ignore it but there is also told me she noticed some encouraging signs during the mid term campaign this last year we also sell a lot more campaigns and local efforts to reach out and introduce themselves to these voters for Elizabeth Warren the person leading that effort to connect with Latino voters is Jonathan Jay's green the campaign's national director of Latin next out reach for my family and I came from Panama over for fourteen years ago we came to the United States and I grew up in Maryland I've been undocumented ever since I came really I'm a doctor recipient rate and my status expires December so I really feel like the selection for me is a clear reminder that our communities lie eyes are at stake I spoke to Jonathan this week about how his background informs the work that he does on the campaign in the overall outreach strategy that Warren hopes will help her connect with this important constituency I think it makes the urgency really clear like everyday I walk into the office and I know I what's at stake I know what's at stake for me for my family for millions of people every day and that's the urgency that I bring into this flight and that's why I'm proud to be on this campaign because I think people get it Elizabeth Warren has an interesting history with the Latino voters there was a moment that she publicly use the word let the next room and that sort of set off a among many many things that are set off a conversation about that word in particular yeah what language should war in another candidates be using to talk about this voting group because we've even talked about this here on our show which is that there is a debate among Latinos I use the word like the nose more brought more broadly but some of them don't want to use the term does it alienate potential voters to think so when she started using the word is because trans gender non conforming by next people I told her that that's what was best to to make sure we are beating closest to them right that's why she's ready to work and since then you know she's been listening to people who said like actually I don't identify with this word and I think that's part of the narrative in the story that like our community right brings to the table and to be honest like so we're talking about Latinos in parts of this country people prefer Hispanic right there certain community center for for for for three can or Mexican offer Panama so Panamanian right like there's so much diversity in our community so far as you know you'll see as you know really being able to listen and I just to go that feedback but for us I think what we really want to get to as like you know allowing people to self identify how they want to on this campaign as there are part of it and then fighting for the issues that matter to our people right people wanted us to talk about health there are people want to talk about immigration people want to talk about climate change trace I think you know thinking about like how to be you know a lot of people to come in as they are and then to really be a part of this fight and really making it clear why we're fighting for them because that is really a key part of the question here when we you don't talk about the Latino vote the Latino population is diverse politically yes yes I know I guess they were a quarter of Latino voters who voted for president trump in the twenty sixteen we are not all the same race that's right I mean that was starting there yes yeah a big issue so how does the senator tried to address that I mean how do you try to address that with that level of diversity I mean I think a you bring people in the community right I think the fact that I think I might be the first offered at the note to be and this role for a presidential campaign speaks volumes of how she thinks about who she's surrounding herself with a tell me about how that what that experience to for you because a lot of Afro Latinos the conversation around a Filipinos today is almost emerging in the main stream yeah yes it is I think when we talk about at the knee that right only talk about this concept of our community and people like me have been at the margins right like I think there's a beautiful story about blackness in Panama and the migration around the process of the Panama Canal that often doesn't get talked about and I know that when we talk about the issues facing like you know even black people in the United States that also translates to throughout Latin America rates of the fact that I come with that experience like having experience at the blackness back home and then also came to be night states and then blending it or trying to be a part of the broader Latino community and then struggling with what that means I think like the some of those experiences also being query being a document that I think the lines that I bring to this campaign is of people who've been at the margins we mentioned that the democratic fields of candidates has gotten narrower we've lost two candidates of color so far Kamel Harris and course we are Castro Castro has since endorsed senator Warren he was with her at an event here in New York City publicly endorsed her he's now going to speak for earned you know speak on the campaign trail for her again caster was previously you know rumored to have been Hillary Clinton's potential VP pick I'm so he's been in this so severe for quite awhile how does senator ward intend to capitalize on on that relationship with Castro is she looking for him to help connect her to let the voters you know I can our entire strategy is to establish trust in the community I think what secretary Custer's going to be able to do is open so many more doors to be able to establish that trust and and actually maybe do it a little bit faster right he's gonna be Nevada this weekend he's going to Iowa like he's built an infrastructure are ready that we're gonna be able to tap into and I can his his voice he speaks for so many of us and I think like that that is going to make a big difference in this election cycle we have to take a quick break but we'll have more on that the voter out reach ahead of twenty twenty in just a moment this is the take away support for the takeaway comes from at last whether it's keeping thousands of people on the same page are managing projects from start to finish Atlassian works to unleash the potential of all types of teams with.

the United States and then blending it or trying to be a part of the broader Latino community and then struggling with what that means I think like the some of those experiences also being query being a document that I think the lines that I bring to this campaign is of people who've been at the mark gin's we mentioned that the democratic field of candidates has gotten narrower we've lost two candidates of color so far Kamel Harris and of course we are Castro Castro has since endorsed senator Warren he was with her at an event here in New York City publicly endorsed her he's now going to speak for you know speak on the campaign trail for her again caster was previously you know rumored to have been Hillary Clinton's potential VP pick I'm so he's been in this says fear for quite awhile how does senator ward intend to capitalize on on that relationship with Castro is she looking for him to help connect her to let the voters you know I can our entire strategy is to establish trust in the community I think what secretary Custer's going to be able to do is open so many more doors to be able to establish that trust and and actually maybe do it a little bit faster right he's going to be in a lot of this week and he's going to Iowa like he's built an infrastructure are ready that we're gonna be able to tap into and I can his his voice he speaks for so many of us and I think like that that is going to make a big difference in this election cycle we have to take a quick break but we'll have more on Latino voter out reach ahead.

In terms of the transaction process says can be very useful as well and understanding the if you're professional business by and they settled the businesses never done it before. They're under immense neds pressure. And it's your job to help manage that pressure otherwise they get sellers remorse and they put the deal so understanding these things these. These psychological dynamics eased as important as understanding the accountancy Illegal but I think you've taught us that through your story you've taught us that it's more than just numbers on a spreadsheet in all the other things so based on what you've learned from this story and what you continue to learn.

What one piece of advice would you give them? Have a great team around you with a set of skills that you can delegates the the issues that you don't know how to deal with to them and you trust them solve the problems that's the pace with Vice.

What's the main benefit that you can bring that business professional management? Now I would suppose that many of the Danish nurseries are run by men and women who are very devoted to what they're doing and making a great experience for the kids but may find accounting Absolutely mind numbing and not want to deal with all the regulatory in the distance they just wanted to spend time and help these kids develop absolutely spot on. That's exactly was but you can do. Both you can have a great environment for the children the children and get everything you would expect them in Walden to get out of that time at the story but at the same time it can still be run as a business it needs to make a profit.

"Jonathan take a minute and a further tidbits about your life. Well thank you for that Introduction Action Andrey Over the last twenty plus years is more like twenty three years now. I've made my money from buying and selling companies and most most people in business consider that they make their money from operating the business. A draw money out every month maybe is a bonus at the end of the year. But I've I made my money from sending the companies and typically the companies that I sell companies I bowl a few years earlier. All in some cases I all several companies in the same a sector of putting together a logic company and. That's the company that I sell so slightly different Paul too many businesses and I help nope business owners do exactly the same thing I spent about one day a week working with business owners say. I've been doing this a ten years. I I can't seem to get my company bigger. How do I acquire another business? Double the size of the next twelve months. That sort of thing very exciting. In fact I just had a conversation with my business this partner in one of my other businesses about that exact thing so we may have some talking to do later all right. Well now. It's time the share your worst investment ever since no one goes into their worst investment thinking it will be tell us a bit about the circumstances leading up to it and then tell us your story show so I went to a dinner and the dinner I got talking to someone who told me about company in the sector the I already had. Investments investments in the apparent was doing very very well indeed it was private equity owned and he thought that I should be talking to that so I made an approach and discover they wanted to sell the business and they were very open about the finances of the business and I could see that it John batchelor in the pasta the last year or so hadn't been so good but there was a rationale behind it and I took face by that stage. That's really what do we look to buying the business and we spent some months during due-diligence and we we discovered some things that wouldn't particularly good but that was to be expected. Because we were going to be buying this business for one pound and when you buy a business for a pound you take the library was he's with it. You unrealized Rough with the smooth and it's not going to be a bed of roses and are going to be some challenges along the way so we went into is open but the reality was just terrible in fact usually when you buy business there are one or two skeletons in the closet by ten in businesses over a period of time and they got different problems in different issues. This particular business had every problem in every issue. You could ever imagine all all in one place at the same time times Jane amid it was unbelievable. There was nothing right about this business stuff. With right's management wasn't right finances would right. The product was writes. The delivery was right. The supply was nothing right about this company it was still making money. Who which was our incentive to keep on going and sometimes actually an investment can be quite a good one when a business is making money despite itself so despite being terribly wrong terribly managed it still manages to make some money so the next six or seven months were an absolute loot nightmare because all we did was fire fight and solve problems every day was different? Every day was stressful. My managing drake the right to who I put in there to run everything day to day basis. quit after seven months. He just couldn't take it anymore. Every day was a new challenge. ENJ- we had to make a large number stoff redundant to save the business wouldn't surprise to the slightest. They knew there was a problem. So we had to make seventy five or eighty not star redundant a one single day which actually relieve the pressure and allow the business to survive otherwise would have just collapsed. We moved to small offices. We got rid of all the company. 'cause there was a whole swathe of management that went in the very first week and they actually contributed take a million pounds with the cost to the business but by removing not only do we free up that million pounds that was just being sucked into the salaries reasoning that assistance. Even their assistance had assisted a whole group of people once they gone. It certainly freed up the cash. Interestingly it made zero difference to the business Having no positive impact on the company by being there I replaced all of those people with just one person so we sold a lot of problems but every time we sold to pro there was another problem it seemed a relentless a a never ending stream of issues and problems but we ended up off to seven months with all under control. It was actually a business that I sold. Full months on slater so I owned it for eleven months in total seven months with solving problems. Full months was getting ready for sale. The actual facts. It was a very strong multi-million pound X. which was not a bad return on investment financially because we invested a pound almond to buy the business however I got a lot of grey hair as a result that ownership so even though everything toned down at the end it was is the most stressful acquisition. I have ever done so one of the questions about it before we move into the session where we'll just talk about what you learn. I I just curious you know with your experience and as you said. The sellers were open with their stuff did due diligence. You know obviously obviously everybody expected. You know there's GonNa be some skeletons but how is it that you would have missed all of that. Well because so many of these issues were caused by the people. Don't get close to the people in the business okay. So that I think that's a core thing that I didn't think think about but I mean that's like just right there. I love that you don't get to know about these people until you get close to them so up to that point is just a name on a spreadsheets spread shades with the scenery and the start date. And that's radio you will you have but when you actually meet the people that you've got and you understand the the level of training that they've had you discover. The count manages just deleting on the emails from customers because it's easy to delete the email and have an empty inbox in talks to do the job Colin customers in solving their issues. And that's a really hard cultural. I mean you don't get culture during geologists. You don't understand that so the culture was basically to hide everything under the carpet and little work as possible but take the salary every month. It's the culture of the management's again. Everyone puts their best foot forward executives. We met certainly presented very well in very professionally nationally but all they were doing was taking money out the company for example the day before completions day before we legally became the owners. I saw him the bank statements that had been transferred. Ten thousand pounds out to the finance director and try to find out what this was. I discovered that it was an expense account with a finance to not been paid expenses for according to her for the last three years. Quite frankly I don't believe that and is a very nice nice round number ten thousand pounds it was thrice by the CEO on a very quick email exchange thing. Yes no program really what was happening. They thought will will pay ourselves a little bonus here here if the sale goes through and this is coming from the finance right now if sites. UW that for a few days during our ownership we moved her all very very quickly. Okay so these are the things that Diligence you realize until you own the business which is one. I think you've got to be very flexible. If you're going to make acquisitions like it's because if you are original you know everything about everything you will never be able to adapt to constantly ever changing minute committed situation one could take the day all it seems. The people were quick. A if this person just quick do we know job they do. We don't even know what job they do and they've just quit so you've got to adapt to these changing environments. Got It got it and it's interesting because you know you're such an expert in this area and and what you've learned through this experience has gotta make you even so much more valuable to your clients now so tell us a little bit about like. What did you learn from this? That's what you've got to be resilient. I think if you get stressed by very small things lying businesses may be is not for you because there's always was gonna be some degree of stress and there's always going to be the unknown which some people find stressful in itself. I think what I learned from this. was that if you want the big opportunities than you've got to expect it to be lots of uncertainty and my resilience level certainly went up during this protests. I thought I was pretty resilient already. But this this really toughened me off and I suppose also that you should never believe anything including the diligence that you have painful. It can look great in a revolt but really you don't know a business until you own the business Which is why you must always expect the unexpected? Every day is a surprise. One of recent acquisitions was Tena Astray. Childcare is this and we asked the manager of the business while the reputation of the business was in the local community because really wants I find out whether yeah we keep the original brand or do we rebranded what we do with it and she said the reputation is that this is the nursery that you send your children if you don't you want to pay the bill and this statement but never heard this before and it was up. So what do you mean. Don't pay the bills. Will everyone knows that I'll billing link processes Poll that you can get away for months and months and months without paying a penny for the childcare so an actual fact. That's an opportunity for us. Because could we have to do is tighten up the money that we're and the business tons of coal in the very very quickly indeed so. This adaptability is absolutely K.. Yeah and I think that you know you've also highlighted. The point is if you're buying a successful smooth running business and all that well you don't have as much opportunity for that gain going from one town to massive exit. Yes Sir to talk. It'd be a sometimes. A business can be too perfect and there isn't any value to be added by the new owner and sometimes when you're at the point of perfection the only way down the value of the business gotcha diminished. It's what I look for. Businesses is the having a hatred for myself might seem to actually add value and as a result lagging adding that value business in itself increases fantastic. Well let me summarize what I took away from it a couple of things. I mean the first thing that you said is that due. Diligence doesn't really reveal the culture and I thought that's really valuable also the idea that people are just names on spreadsheets. But the reality is there's much more there than just is the name on a spreadsheet and I think it's a good lesson for for the listeners out there like myself that are very quant oriented looking at numbers and all that to always remember ember that humans are much more complex than a name on a spreadsheet. The other thing I'd take away you know you used the word stress quite a bit now. I think that the a type of business that you do of taking over businesses you know that it can be a pretty stressful thing and whenever I think of stress I always always think of health. You know the importance of maintaining your your health and your your vitality through that because if you don't maintain that you know it's critical and I remember many years ago people used to come see me when I was head of research and they'd say my staff would say you know how to go. I'm so stressed stressed and so one day I kind of looked at myself itself and I realized I wonder what they say about me when somebody asked what Andrews like and I thought I bet you. They say he stressed. So that was the day Eh. I stopped and I removed stress from my life because I stopped seeing stress and I started to replace the words dress with pressure. I'm under pressure but stress is definitely a component of your business. Yes the last thing that I would highlight that something that I've experienced. Is You have to it. Come to the realization. That sometimes the team that you have around you may not be able to survive that stress you you know a lot of times the leader light yourself or others can handle it but I think we always have to remember that the people around us they may have a much lower threshold for what what they will want on this and so always keep in mind when in the world of startup. They always talk about a runway and they're talking about financial runway. But I always say there's a there's an emotional runway that you have to deliver for your team at some point and that delivering release the stress On the people around you so those are my takeaways any thoughts. Yeah I I think you're spot on with those. I do think that if you can handle the Prussia Russia then the opportunities are huge and pressure can be a good thing because some people formal better under pressure when the back's against the wall up up against a deadline we often get more done leading up to that deadline that we have done in the weeks right to that. Wait a minute I think a lot of our listeners are just smiling as they're listening right now thinking thinking Oh yeah when I have that deadline looming. That's when I get stuff done some growing. Get your work done this evening before you go in your holiday so pressure can be applied allied in.
