"More and more people are trading podcast promos or in some cases paying for a podcaster to play their promo on their show. And you've heard the old saying a picture paints a thousand words.

A good picture paints a thousand words, and likewise, if you're gonna be putting marketing material in front of people, if you want them to come listen to your show, it better be really good, at getting people to come listen to your show. So I listen to a show called The Voice inside my head for my buddy, Neil hedley, which enticed me to buy his copywriting one O one course. I'll talk more about that a little later. And it's good. It got me to think a lot.

No, there isn't. So what's the secret to a good promo? We're gonna talk about that today and we have a really cool because of my podcast story.

And listen to what's going on with Ken, because he now describes himself as a pop up pastor and speaking of that, that means I gotta press this button. You guessed it, invisible sky buddy alert, invisible sky buddy alert. Beware. Hey, Dave. Thanks for allowing me to be here. Because of my podcast, I'm able to fulfill my call to ministry. The speak life church podcast is a church without walls. I am essentially an at large pop up pastor that I've passed through about 300 people in nationally. I've been able to travel to officiate Christian weddings, perform baptisms, funerals, and have answered the call to help. About ten people so far, who have considered suicide. Because of my podcast, the speak life church podcast provides 20 to 30 minutes of the gospel without fail. Pop or circumstance. I've been faithful with it even though I'm going through a little bit of a situation providing for my wife and family during her illness. It's been going on, probably about ten years now. Because of my podcast, I've officiated weddings on a cruise ship in Jamaica on the beach in The Bahamas. On a sailboat in Annapolis, Maryland, in museums in Baltimore, a chapel in Richmond, and a backyard in a few places. In the spring of 2023, I'll be traveling to Missouri to baptize and to preach at a country church. You know, I started this podcast because I dislike politics. I just like what it assumed to be church. And come to serve the people of God who are looking for intimacy, honesty, and knowledge about the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. And the book we called the Bible. My messages are personal and my phone number is given out my email is given out and I speak to people on a weekly basis that listen to the show. And because of my podcast, I can share stuff like this about Micah, the prophet, who prophesied during the reigns of king Joe fan. He has and hezekiah Judah. Micah's messages were directed chiefly towards Jerusalem. His message was that evil is still present, and that the enemy of God is still influencing people. Church people. I draw their attention to Micah 6 8. I'm here to remind you that God wants us to love and trust him. He wants us to love each other as ourselves. And there are three things in this passage in 6 8 that also want to highlight and lift up for you. To remember this week, act justly, love, mercy, and walk humbling. Dave again, thank you for reminding me that I had something to share and just in case nobody else has told you today. I love you. And it's not a damn thing you can do about it. This is a reverend Ken Blanchard of the speak life church podcast. You can find me at speak live church dot net. Thank you, Ken. Love you too, buddy. And who knew? You started a podcast next thing you know, you're in a river in Missouri, baptizing people. I think that's cool. And one thing I want to make sure to mention here is I record this. It's December 17th, and really this is good year round. It just seems to be that there is a spike because Ken has mentioned he's like talk ten people off the ledge and I realized the holidays are not always Holly or jolly. And if you're having a hard time during the holiday season, at least in the U.S., I'm not sure what it is overseas. You can dial 9 8 8. And just get someone to talk to you and get some help. Because for some of us, the holidays are just brutal. They're just brutal. So 9 8 8, if you're finding yourself in a really dark place.

So school of podcasting dot com slash survey 22. Now on to Neil. Here's the fun thing about Neil. I was thinking about this. How do you introduce a guy that's been a comedian? He's been in radio forever, like decades and decades. He's been on TV is on TV. He's been on the radio. He's been a voice-over guy. He's been a stand up comedian. He's done it all, and so I thought about that. I'm like, I believe the word a copywriter as well. He works in advertising. That's what we're here to talk about today a little bit. And the word I came up with is entertainer. And Neil reached out to me. He's been on the show before I'll put a link to this out in the show notes at school of podcasting dot com slash 8 5 8. And he came through Akron, Ohio. We met had some pizza. And I listened to his show, the voice inside my head, linked to that again, school of podcasting dot com slash 8 5 8. And in general, I like this guy. He makes me think. And you know, I always say, part of being engaging is making you laugh, cry, think, grown, educator, entertain. And in my case, I'm taking Neil's course right now. You'll hear us talk about that a little bit where I'm taking his copywriting course and his podcast makes me think. And the reason I bought his course is because of his podcast. I was like, wow, I didn't realize this guy had such a vast knowledge and everything he said. I was like, um, that's a different way of thinking about it, and I like it more. I'm gonna have an episode on that in January. About how do we make decisions? I've talked about this in the past. I have a new way of looking at it and I think a clear way of doing it because I had almost spent a $1000 that I didn't need to spend. I did spend some money this week. I actually got a Mac mini and I'll be talking about that in the future, but when it comes to Neil, this is a guy that has a wide range of knowledge and he makes me think and I love people that make me think and we're gonna hear my talk

"They'll walk a hundred miles around their conflict avoiders. They'll walk a hundred miles around a conflict then deal with it. And that may be part of the issue. That may be part of the issue. But again, I'm going to come back to some of the things that I said in the coaching and action signal. Remember the deposits and withdrawals. One of the best ways that you can more successfully address corrective measures with team members is to have lots of deposits in the banks of comp genuine compliments. Where you're specific with the team member. You know, it's one thing for you to say, Maria, you did a good job today. And Maria will feel warm and fuzzy about that. But it evaporates pretty quickly because it's not very specific. But imagine if you were able to say, maybe Maria's a hygienist. And maybe you overheard a conversation that Maria had with her patients with a particular patient that afternoon about their perinatal health. And imagine you overheard that the hallway at the end of the day, you went to Maria and say, Maria, I want to take a minute and compliment you. I think it was mid afternoon, you had a patient in your chair, and you were talking about her periodontal health. And first of all, the words that she used were fantastic. But even more important than the words was the tone that you had as you were talking to the patient. And I can only imagine that if I was that patient, I would feel that she cared very deeply about me. Your tone was one of caring and compassion. And your tone was fantastic. And I just want to take a minute and compliment you for that conversation to have with that patient. And I'm sure it wasn't easy to have the conversation. Your words were perfect in your tone was even more perfect. Thank you. Now imagine how that complement will resonate with the team member. Even better, you know, because it's very specific. It's not just you had a good day. But you did something very specific. And what's likely to continue? That team member is likely to repeat the things that she was praised on. Before. Well, I do have a very specific reference for you in correcting team members. It's from the book and I say, can you remember the Ken Blanchard book that we did in book club? Yes. I can Blanchard as written a really terrific book called the one minute manager. One minute manager. And there is a chapter in the book called the one minute reprimand, the one minute reprimand. And I would encourage you all to read it, you can read it in about four minutes that check. It's very concise. And I would encourage you to follow the wisdom of Ken lantern. Maybe we can put a link in the show. The one minute manager. Right. I'll simply, I won't go through the full steps of it, I'll let can do that himself. But at the very end, he finishes with this. Now, let's say you were the team member and I was needing to correct you for whatever reason. And they've end that conversation. The manager or leader would end the conversation by saying something like this. And I have 100% confidence in you that when you have an opportunity to reflect on our conversation, you're going to make the necessary changes that will make you more effective in your job. And now we close on a very positive note. So maybe it's tactical that you don't know how to correct. And that book, the one minute manager by Ken Blanchard, and the chapter of the one minute reprimand will provide you that information to be able to do that more effectively. Well, narratives would bring this episode to a conclusion. The 8 tips to developing high performance team. It's not something you can just click your fingers and be done with it is something you have to be continually working on. But let me bring it back full circle and remind you that I've yet to meet a world class practice that didn't also have a high performance team. And I want to encourage you. I believe that each and every one of our listeners can, in fact, develop a high performance team. It's not going to be easy, but it's definitely going to be worthwhile. On that note, let me thank you, and your team and ecwa for all that you do to support lifestyles, but also to support our clients and developing effective marketing. If you're a new listener to the thriving dentist show, you have the opportunity to schedule a marketing strategy meeting with equa, where you can learn how your website looks in the eyes and mind of Google and some things that you can

"The ones who do well with Google reviews carry are typically have a morning huddle. And I think they just stick with that habit of how do we get a review as per review, at least once a day. And that becomes automatic and then it just like brushing your teeth. They don't have to think about it. It's part of who they are. It's like we noticed that not uncommon in our mutual clients. They'll come out of the gate with reviews and rocket. You know, maybe this is an office at the beginning of historically two or three Google reviews. And by using our system that we teach, they ramp it up and they're getting 15, 20 reviews. And then we look four months later and we're back to two. And I think that dynamic is very common. And it can happen for any number of reasons. One of the reasons that the shiny object syndrome, right? So in other words, you know, all of a sudden, the shiny object was the Google reviews. And now there's a new shiny object over here. And so we dropped the reviews and we did this. It's kind of like the jug love that's trying to keep multiple balls, juggling in the air, right? So one of the things you could do in those semi annual team meetings is revisit the KPIs and the systems that drive the KPIs that are underperforming in your practice. And go back to fundamentals. Go back to revisiting the system. I think the mistake that so many of us make, you make it Marin, I make it our listeners make it, let's face it. We are accomplished people. You're accomplished. Would you accept that compliment? Thank you, Gary. I humbly accept the compliment. You're accomplished. But I think we also make the mistake of thinking it's one and done. We only have to cover once and then remember to rarely does anything lasting work like that. Yes. Nothing has ever won and done in a dental practice. You got to revisit it. You got to fine tune it. You got to go back and go to fundamentals. That's why I'm looking at my office at a wonderful quote and photo I have of coach John Wooden, the legendary UCLA basketball coach. And there's a wonderful true story about coach when he would meet for the first practice of the new season with his NCAA championship basketball team. And there would be a couple of new team members on the team. You know what he would teach them in that first meeting? He'd teach him how to put their socks on. Honest got true story. He'd teach you how to put their socks on. And I know, in fact, one of my clients played under coach wood and he said, Gary, I couldn't wait to meet with the wizard of Westwood. That was his nickname coach when wizard of Westwood. And I thought I'm going to learn all about triangle defense. Let me learn about the latest state of the art offense that I'm going to learn this and that and this and that. And we sit down and the very first thing he taught us was how to put our socks on, but why was that important? Well, UCLA was a running team. And you can't run and you can't move fast if you get blisters. When your socks on right, you're going to get blisters. So it was a very important detail. So what I would say come up with some there's all kinds of things we could do in that the initiative, the projects, the things we want to do, and maybe some in service stuff, as well, because we have a longer period of time. But in service type training with our team, is another good purpose for that morning part of the semi annual team meeting. Thank you, Gary. Let me ask you the third question. This is linked to the morning huddles. I'm having trouble with a couple of team members being tardy. I know I need to address this individually with these team members. But I also don't want to be too harsh in the current hiring environment. If they left, I may have difficulty replacing them. Any suggestions? Yeah, I'm going to answer this very bluntly and very directly. We can not allow a barren behavior in our practice. For the fear that someone's going to leave. That is not leadership. That is, it's not effective leadership to do that. I'm going to use this very playfully. You know, doctor either you run your practice in terms of approach and philosophy and direction. Or it ends up being kind of a free for all. And I'm going to say that a free for all doesn't work. And it's okay to have certain expectations with your team members. Now again, if someone can't make the morning huddle because she can't drop her issues a single mom hypothetically and she can't get her kids to latch key. Then pivot. And set up a different time for her to come in. That's fair. That's fine. But if the reason they can't make it is because they're out late the night before and they can't get up in time. It's not acceptable. And you can not be fearful of someone leaving your practice because, you know, they feel like you're being too harsh. You can't run your practice that way. It's more important than ever to have alignment of our team members today. It's more important than ever. And it's critical, especially if you're going to have a relationship driven practice. And I'm going to suggest you need a little bit of tough love, a little bit of leadership on this. Sit down with them. You know, there's a great way to do this. We covered in a book club. Do you remember the book that we did by Ken Blanchard near and that's called the one minute manager? Yes, we did. Yeah, there's a very short chapter 7 pages long called the one minute reprimand. Can I go ahead and do that for you as a way to absolutely and this wouldn't be you of course sharing, but I'll use you as the team member. And you're the opposite of this wouldn't be I'll be clear. But let's say I'm the doctor and you're my team member. You know, it's come to my attention that you're having trouble getting here on time. And you know, I understand life gets complicated sometimes. But first of all, I want to take a minute and apologize. And what I want to apologize for is I haven't been clear to you about how important it is for me to have you here on time. It's very, very important. I count on it, our team members count on it and ultimately our patients count on you being here on time. And if you're not here for
"ken blanchard" Discussed on Gun Talk
"The police show up because they're probably going to shoot you. These are things we talk about a good bit. But it's something for you to consider. I agree. Hey, what if you could teach a thousand women to shoot in one weekend coming up, you'll have that news. All right, that creates the H 6 6 talk gun, Tom Brady. It is gun talk. We're talking about pretty much the guns you want to talk about. I took our neighbor kid out. It's like, it's like our neighbor kid out. Yeah, we've had Nick on the show before. I went out, did a little shooting a couple days ago. He had his 70 MO 8. I had my two 84 and the funny part was the guy shooting next to us. I was shooting a two 80 AI, so we got all three cartridges together. I said, look, here's the deal. We're doing kind of the lesson deal. All our shooting 7 millimeter bullets. My two 84 year 7 MMO 8 has two 80 AI, just different velocities. Maybe just kind of interesting that we're all shooting the two ages or I'll shoot in two 84 diameter bullets. Get ready for home season, had some fun. The two 84 get the dialed in, getting there, you know, I've been struggling with this one, get a little work done by the gun smith and I'm down to one inch groups with this little lightweight rifle. It did not like the partition bullets, but it shot the 160 grain acu bonds very well. I still haven't worked to do. I'll keep you posted on that as we go along. All right, so let's bring in a fellow that we've had on the show before. He's doing some amazing work up a Detroit Rick actor joined us right now. And Rick, you are right in the middle of your event of getting all this women out to the range, aren't you? Right now, I am doing the promotion to let them know that we're having it next weekend Saturday and Sunday. Okay, so sorry from the beginning, what is the promotion? What are you doing next weekend? I am a very dedicated group of volunteers. We're putting on a personal protection weekend. We are aspiring to train as many as a thousand women how to safely operate a firearm and give them a range safety briefing. Great. You've done this before and you have kind of come up with a system almost a conveyor belt or assembly line system, but they still get individual attention. How do you do that? Man, it takes a lot of dedicated professional trained manpower fellow firearms instructors and range safety officers. We bring them into the gun range, two gun ranges at the same time across town, man. We bring them in. It's pre appointed scheduled times. We give them a quick half hour range safety briefing and we pair them up one on one with a credential firearms instructor. We have them shoot. We give them a target and they're smiles all over the gun range. So what do they have to bring? What do they have to contribute to the cause? A positive attitude and a willingness to try. We provide everything, the range time, the firearm, the ammunition, safety glasses, earplugs, target silhouettes, the gun, man, all they need to do is bring a healthy curiosity and we'll take it from there. I can actually hear you smile as we're talking. You love this, don't you? Man, it is the single most project that I have ever done that brings me the most joy to see people who are a little uncertain as to what's going to happen and you see the end result at the end, smiling faces and target silhouettes with holes in them. How long have you been doing it and why did you do this in the first place? This is our 11th annual event of this nature and I started it 11 years ago after seeing unfortunately a distressing story in our local news media. A woman's body after she had been raped and killed was found on the street, man. And I thought that someone should do something about that. And so this is my contribution as far as generating a solution. You know, honestly, Rick, a lot of people look at stories and say, someone should do something about that. What made you decide that you were the one? You know, this situation just vexed me for so long, man. And I talked to a good friend of mine, Ken Blanchard, black man with a gun dot com. Man, he encouraged me to, you know, this crazy idea I had about training women for free and I followed it and pursued it, man. And I haven't stopped. And I'm going to keep doing it as long as I can. Who pays for the ammo who pays for all this? Oh man, see, that's a question I wasn't expecting, but let me tell you, dedicated, volunteers, sponsors, ammo companies, gun organizations, the gun owners of America, National Rifle Association, people that I'm connected to in social media, that contact me, they make donations, by the way, they hit us up at info at Detroit CCW on PayPal or they'll contribute, I have another payment option set up on other sites, just search for my name in the program, and if they want to support by all means help us out every little bit helps. It's Rick actor EK TOR, right? It's like vector without the V okay. I can't spill where the flip. Okay, so question. Give us a briefing on what's going on in Detroit. Now that conceal carry is much more popular Detroit, it's always been known for decades as a crime city, but I keep hearing reports of people using guns to defend themselves. Yeah, man, we have a perpetual problem here in the city of Detroit like we do in a lot of major urban centers all across the country. I don't claim that this solution is the panacea for all of our problems, man. But for the specific problem of innocent victims being attacked by violent criminals, especially women, this is my contribution to having that problem solved.

"Now, let's get to today's episode. Hey guys, how you doing? Welcome to dad devotionals and welcome, of course, to man up Monday. Since we're talking about leadership with the last episode, last interview episode last week with John gi, and we'll be talking about leadership actually in the next couple of episodes with Adrian shepherd, who's going to appear later this week again, second time on the podcast and also Matt ham next week on the 30th. So 23rd will be Adrian and the 30th who we've met. Since we're talking about leadership in general over the next few weeks in this leadership series, I wanted to just bring a couple of poll quotes into today's man up Monday and talk to you about leading like Jesus. There's a great book. It's more for, I would say for the business element. But I think there's a lot to be said as well from a leadership perspective for us dads. So it's good for your job, but it's also good for your family, you know, kids and wife. So this is lead like Jesus lessons from the greatest leadership role model of all time. And it's by Ken Blanchard who's, if you know anything about management and leadership, he's been in the game for years as an author and also Phil Hodges. So I have a couple of quotes here that just want to share with you and I'll let you get back to your week. So his first one comes to us from talking about the heart of a servant leader on page 67 and the authors say this humility is realizing and emphasizing the importance of others. It is not putting yourself down and it's lifting others up. It is also saying to yourself and others, I am precious in God's sight and so are you. And then on the next page..

"And isn't this great? You never have to go on that ski team again. We work so hard. He never wanted to be on my team, my ski team. Again. But he's going to tell that story. It was therapist. For sure, my wife says that. All the time, but I want us to be hard workers. Obviously, the parents have an influence on what the family values are. I don't think you could take a 6 year old and expect you know what I mean? You've got a guy that a little bit. They don't have a prefrontal cortex yet. So it's not like they're gonna spit out a perfect values at that point. You got to guide it a bit. I think there was a practicality challenge here too. It's one thing if you've been doing this all along since your kids were really little and they're like, okay, this is what we do. And this is dad's deal. But you come in hot when your kids are like 14, 15. They ain't having it. That's a fair point. There's a book everybody should read called the one minute manager. It was written by a guy named Ken Blanchard and one of his concepts is when you manage people, which is like managing children. You have to set really tight expectations in the beginning at the moment that person joins the organization. You can't let them run free and then clamp down the vice grip 7 months later. Does not work, right? They're going to lose their mind. With your point, you can't at 14 years old say, all right, now here's what we're going to do. You've got to start laying the tracks early on. And I definitely laid tracks early on that we work hard as a family. We chopped wood. We hiked up the mountain. When Charlie was four years old, I might have told you that when Charlie was four years old, he was, he was not the most ideal before Christmas. So everybody got presents that year, but his presence I put on top of the mountain. And so in his little feety pajamas, with snow shoes. We had to go. There was a note from Santa that said, look, Charlie, I'm sorry, but because you didn't give it 1000%, I couldn't get the presence of the house there on top of the mountain. Get out of here. My God. So this is not new. They know. They know what they're getting into with us. My wife is definitely the softer side. Now I will tell you, well, you know, we put on this death camp on the farm, right? And there were many kids at the death camp that would say to me, oh my God, this is so hard. I said, can you imagine what it's like being my kid? When you guys leave and you get to go home, my kids. This is their home. I want to read their book. When they're 28. Yeah. But you got to get value straight. Yeah, values are, look, I completely a 1000% I'm on board with that. I mean, I think the tricky thing that I've experienced as a parent is the balance between setting the hard boundary and what happens when that expectation isn't met. How hard do you come down on that kid? Because especially when they're in those teenage years, like the communication is so critical. And I don't want to do anything that's going to shut that down. And if I come in really hot, I risk them just clamping down and then they're not telling me what's going on in their life anymore. And keeping that communication open I think is critical when they're trying to figure out how to navigate their social circles and drugs and alcohol and the temptations that teenagers face. Like I want them to feel like they can come and talk to me about that stuff. But if I'm too disciplinarian, then they're going to, I'm not going to be the guy that they're going to come to when they need to clear that stuff. Well, in our family, and I didn't go in with this plan. It just happened. So it's a good model to use. My wife is the pressure relief out. So they'll go to my wife. And they'll open up and talk to her about anything. There's no doubt about it that based on my communication and our family. They know that I'm hardcore and I have high expectations. I've tried really hard to explain that my expectations aren't, I don't care if you get a pluses. By the way, they're all striving for. I didn't get a's. I see. They're all like speak Mandarin and stuff. They all speak man. They do extra math. But I know some people are rolling their eyes that might be listening. It's like, again, we don't take tests in Mandarin where my expectation, you've got to do this or that. No, you just, it's kind of like you got to exercise a little bit each day. You gotta speak another language with a teacher every day. Well, the Mandarin thing started because your daughter came to you and said, I want to learn Mandarin, right? It was a little bit of that. We had a Kung fu master living a switch was it was another story. How old were they? They were very young. I saw the movie kill Bill when they were young. And Uma Thurman had a Kung fu master. And I turned to my wife and I said, wouldn't it be unbelievable? If we had a Kung fu master living on the farm, so I called a friend of a friend of a friend, and I convinced a guy to come from China who didn't speak any English. And I would train them every day in Kung fu. And then my daughter said, hey, I'd love to learn. So then it started. Did you take the Kung fu also? Hide it, and you didn't I didn't. And I'm a wimp. What did they learn from that discipline? Tremendous discipline. And it's really the Kung fu is kind of like almost gymnastics, if you will. So they had gymnastics class with a Mandarin speaking master for three or four years before we switched to.

Um, partly, yes, I think that every book has a part of the author in it, No matter what it is, Um, And this particular journey is because most CEOs are challenged in the work that they do every day and leading an organization. And the biggest thing I think, is there all alone there by themselves, so it's really hard for them to find people to confide in and work with, and we all I need somebody to talk to. This book is about CEO that really struggles and in that journey and hires a coach to help them and it's something that is becoming a lot more popular now. But it's been around a long time. Right? And I just think CEOs and executives should always consider and can understand how to heads are always better than one. We say that And then we don't live it right? Because we should say the book is sort of laid out in this scenario between Karen and Paul Mariners coach Karen's the coach somebody that Paul had worked for in the past. It's really interesting because its position where he's struggling with everything With his job with his family with his kids. He's struggling with everything and doesn't know where to turn and went back into his history. And Karen was somebody who had worked with in the past and somebody trusted. And called her up and said help? Yeah s O s. But that said you bring up a good point. How do you go about finding a coach? I mean, he'd worked with Karen in the past. But what if you've never worked with someone in the past, you trust where you began? There are coaches everywhere in our days, but typically, I think that if you just ask around and ask other CEOs who you're working with Um, those kinds of personal referrals are probably the best way to find a good coach right before we get into the seven steps. Tell us a little bit more about your background. Your professional background got an ROTC scholarship at the river's Connecticut got an engineering degree in mechanical and metallurgical engineering. And went right into the army. And, uh, when I was 25 years old, I had the first opportunity actually command a unit of 120 soldiers. Wow. So with three older brothers that were in the military All enlisted and I was the first that went into the military as an officer. They made it very clear to me. Listen to your non commissioned officers, So I kept my mouth shut, and I listened to these very experienced sergeants. And had a pretty successful career. But I learned in that experience that the culture of the army wasn't the right fit for me. My whole family was navy, My dad. My four brothers, my son. We're all navy. And we have 108 years of military service amongst us. And so that's where I began my journey and then went to manufacturing with my engineering degree and Procter and Gamble. It's got paper was Got a lot of really good management, leadership training. Uh, again. I just wasn't It didn't feel right to me yet. So I started my first business. I work for Stephen Covey for the Cover Leadership Center and Ken Blanchard teaching situation leadership. And my wife told me that I needed to get a real job. So went back into business. And I learned at that point that in order to really do something. The old way of living with diabetes is a pain you've got to remember.

"Whatever you want your life. Not your pride you life dude. I'm just saying i understand that. But point is philander. casteel was not being route. He literally was saying the officer. Hey officer he's got his hands up. I just wanna let you know. I got a legal firearm. The guy shot him. Sandra bland was being reasonable until the officers start harassing her. This idea that we can magically jet. I mind trick somebody. We can't you can't and even the example that you just gave you know we just had. We just had a case of saint louis right now. We're cops just got convicted for beating and undercover black police officers. I gotta tell you like that that to me that i just fundamentally disagree with at its core level. We cannot control. I can be as nice and charming and reasonable. I wanna be and quite frankly if my existence is offensive to a police officer if me sounding polite trigger something them because they don't like uppity educated sounding negroes. They gonna hurt me anyway. I totally. i totally agree with you. I'm not. I'm not disagree with that at all. And that's all the trouble we've had forever. We're going to take a short break when we come back more on gun rights in the black community. This is a word which jason johnson stay tuned. You're listening to a word. Would jason johnson. Today we're talking about gun rights in the black community with gun. Rights advocate ken blanchard look. You're lifelong member of the nra. And you know. They've used a lot of race baiting things in their advertising. I've been to nra conventions. I know what it's like. There's some people who are just straight up gun people and then there's some people out there where guns are clearly a proxy for their hostility to black folks. What's it been like to be a lifelong member of the nra. Given some of the racial overtones overt of both some of the membership and leadership challenge. And i've been at the parties with the heads I still got a couple of friends that they're in the book. And i bring all this up to their attention all the time and it is because of that i don't go to some things It's kinda like you got a neighbor day. Ain't that cool but your neighbor is the same A lot of people who have been in leadership and make things happen don't represent the whole organization. They represent themselves on. There's been some a whole bunch of bad actors in joint who just abusing people and using them using them for their fear on using them for whatever they can use them for money mostly to keep the keep the ship upright in recent years. The nra has they've sought out black people you know they. They'll do panels with maggiore. They have done commercials with killer. Mike i wanna play this twenty eighteen video with killer. Mike in it from the now defunct. Nra tv and sort of get your thoughts on the other side. I had a celebrity very famous like like so well over twenty thirty million records. Call me and say hey my assigned to a ninety second. I call you. I was like what's up. He called me. He was at a radio station. They were pressuring him to do a anti gun thing. And i can tell you what comfortable with it and you say. Would you mind explaining why you say very. Very simple mapping american. You know fifty four years out of apartheid. I'm i'm very pro. Second amendment this is why and before you say well. What about the children. My my daughter goes savannah. State university does also shooting on that campus. Talked about wife talked to my wife and daughter after that decision was we're gonna go to savannah. She's gonna give a gun and train more and after they say might we never heard that perspective we surely respect and understand it and then stop pressuring him to do something they wanna do. What are your thoughts about that. Because i mean look what killer. Mike said is logical but at the same time you know. This idea of a weakened arm to safety is also something a lot of people. Just sort of fundamentally disagree with killer. Mike and and calling on the war who was working as a spokesperson at the time. Did some good in actually showing a different face to pro-gun people being armed is a choice And it's like everybody shouldn't do it. everybody doesn't have to do. What's what's cool though is if one in four people like say you live in georgia which is probably more of a pro gun. Placed in florida is for at least for black people. That is if you if you know that one in four persons in that state might be armed you will not carjack them because bad guys want easy targets bad guys want to attack the female who they know doesn't have any training if you walk and you're acting like you might be a ufc champion. No that's not what i'm gonna do among pick somebody else. So the fact that is one in four or small number that may be in this move then that saves other people. There's nothing wrong with being totally. I don't want firearms in my house. I don't wanna be a gun. Person is not my thing. I am really really cool with that. Just be that same group. There won't dog me for going to the range won't dog me from owning it. Just you be you. Let me be me. Kim blanchard is a gun rights advocate and host of the black man with a gun.

"I'm your host jason johnson. The summer is renewing zaidi's about crime in a handful of high profile. Shootings has put a spotlight back on gun. Violence three years many black leaders. You've been stronger gun control with for of the solution but black gun owner. Say that's a mistake. The phone control things that we have in place always always had in place. They don't work on criminals because criminals don't obey the rules gun ownership in the black community coming up on a work with me. jason johnson. Stay with us. This is a word a podcast from sleep. I'm your host. Jason johnson gun. Violence kills thousands of americans every year and that pain is especially sharp. In the nation's black communities for generation a lot of black political leadership has called for more guns be taken off the street and being closely aligned with gun control advocates but a growing number of black americans seem to be choosing a different approach during the trump administration black gun ownership rates rose and in twenty twenty of all demographic groups african american saw the sharp increase in gun purchases at the start of the year for people like ken. Blanchard advocating for black gun. Ownership has been a crusade for decades after serving in the military and holding a series of jobs in law enforcement. Blanchard brandon himself the quote black man with a gun with a book a website and now a podcast with that name he rejects the idea. That gun control will make black community safer and has made it his mission to encourage black americans view gun ownership as an important element of self defense and kim. Blanchard joins us now. Welcome to a word man. Thank you for having me. Your military veteran former law enforcement officer and guns have been a part of your work for years. What led you from. Law enforcement work to being a gun. Rights advocate entrepreneurism. Actually i tried to figure out. What could i do actually would make a difference. What could i do that. I could do without batting an eye so i thought in the beginning all i wasn't going to do was become a gun instructor. I was going to hang out near range. i was gonna put up a shingle and whenever mom and pop bought a firearm for their home. I was going to be the guy you can call. I was gonna make every home safer. I was going to have family classes. I wanna make sure that the undercover gun owner didn't exist anymore because see we. We kill a lot of people in our homes. Because we don't know about the firearm that we have hidden in the closet does not secure the proper way. We haven't gone through the education with our kids that tell them that unlike elmer foot. If you point this thing at somebody you face will not just turn black and you'll be okay tomorrow. There's education that has to go on. And i was going to be that guy But once i got into it. I learned that everybody didn't grow up on a country farm. Everybody didn't know about hunting aspects and the responsibility aspects. And i had to go way deeper than just being the shingle guy. Being a guy entrepreneur had to go into gun rights and gun history. I had to show my people. I that you have the right to do this. That is been prevented since the creation of this country that african native american were not allowed to have one of these things and that has caused us to have like a purpose ignorance and that has hurt us in the long run. So i wanted to demystify this thing and it took me back. I became activists before. I became an entrepreneur. So it's the money never came. I became the The black man with a gun. Because i was always advocating safety and reliability and responsibility and then getting beat up for sticking up for the person who actually own one and that does what started it can you. You've heard statistics about how the us leads. Industrialized countries and gun. Violence and deaths how black men are disproportionate victims of gun crime. And how even legal gun ownership it can potentially increase the chances of suicide. If i have a gun in the house and i'm having suicidal thoughts my chances of going through with the m being successful or greater than if i just have pills. Or if i have a paring knife why do you think it's important to advocate for gun ownership before the community figures out how to handle the guns out there that we already have. Education got off the plantation and education can keep us free if you have a problem. The firearm is not going to solve it. We do it on both ends gun. People people who are pro gun. Think that a by this bazooka that they will no longer have crime. And that's false and the people who don't have a firearm think that all guns are evil and that's false so it's it's It's a two way street and there is no solution because we haven't fixed humanity we haven't we still don't know love thy brother and sister. We still don't have that part down so when we're looking at fixing things stills education is information and there's no shortage of that right now i wanna talk about that because you're also like a pastor and there are people i they have some particular interpretation of the bible where they think that you know advocating for guns is somehow anti-christian. Talk a little bit about like. How have you been beaten up. Rhetorically were you. were you getting criticized by other clergy. Were you being criticized by parishioners. If you ran a church how were you getting beaten up for being the black man with a gun. When i first started. I was a janitor of this. Big church in dc. I was the guy came at four o'clock open. The place up got ready for the choirs cleaned up. Things made it was also security for the church so while little folks was in there practicing acquires. And whatever. I was keeping the things straight. But while i was there i was riding my first book. Black man with a gun. A book for responsible gun ownership and everybody thought that was like a cool thing. Until i became a minister and then i thought well. How can you advocate for gun. Ownership and i said easy gunston equal murder. My grandmother was the first owner that i ever knew She actually shot a water. Moccasins within feet of me which came my hero. My grandmother celebrated freedom on watch night. Service night you know new year's eve she fired at thing off in the middle of the night. In the middle of suffolk virginia. It was what melissa buni boonies. And that was the first gun ownership that. I saw so i had to be able to explain that in the church and then as time went on i got pseudo famous being pro-gun black preacher and didn't go over too. Well as as a became a pastor on folks would snicker and make jokes about until I even had like foreign press. Come over and they wanted to see. This pistol pack preacher. My deacons went into keen on my my own notoriety for that thing But i was trying to tell them that. I am still a piece. A hollick still a peace. Nick still a hippie. I just have been trained. How to protect people. I just know about this thing called a gun. I'm still the heart of man. That is desperately wicked. It is not the tool that use. I i am curious about this. I think this is key especially again because you're clergy in a black church when we think about the arc of you changing from law enforcement to being you know a a writer to podcasts and and and now clergy did the shooting at mother emmanuel church have any impact on your advocacy. That was an instance where just six years ago you know. Mother emmanuel church in charleston south carolina. The white nashes winning killed nine people after doing bible study with them. That change how you talked about gun advocacy did that change attitudes and the black church because i know a lot of churches started bringing in armed security on sundays after that incident. Did you see.

His face is still in the place. that's pretty. That's hilarious would dow be be be so crazy to go into that restaurant and you're like yeah. It's not really donovan. You know the just going to start calling him donovan. We're gonna keep it gully that would be so great to have to have your image as someone else and see donovan's back. Donovan came into the restaurant. That'd be even funnier right if he actually showed up. And what did yeah. That's not you might think that's me but that's not me. That'd be great before we get to show. I wanted to talk a little bit about This came from our buddy adam curry. Who pointed this out. And then adam curry handed the ball to james cridland.

"Things that you want to work on his start moving forward in creating that space so the number one thing like i said before in creating your checklist is you have to acknowledge that that exists. That you're gonna have fear you're gonna have self doubt you're gonna have anxiety in give that a time limit explore it understand it. Acknowledge it and then set it aside. Because here's what. I've always said about attempting something you've never done. You're already not doing it. Mythic about that. You're already not doing any of those things. So how can you really consider it a failure. Which is the bigger failure that you never do it and you live with the what if it for me personally that his aunt really drives me to do quite a few things. You know if. I have the opportunity to do of the things they talked about. Whether you got the time to do it is the right thing to do for you at the time but the what if what if you don't you wanna live with that. What if forever that to me is really what drives a lot of things for me but you gotta put all that aside and move forward. You're already doing it. So i guess several other episodes that you can listen to to kinda get your mindset the right way some gonna briefly touch on what they're about so back in episode ten. Why i you really dig into very prime examples of people that you've heard of people that you haven't heard of the have started from not doing any of the things doing now to seeing how wildly successful they are and they will the first people to tell you. They've had many failures along the way and they've gone through all those things they've gone through. Are they good enough. The anxiety level. So you go through. Why not you in just that simple question. Why them why not you. While the simple fact is there are people doing what you want to do. Because they're just doing it. And i know that sounds so duh but that begs the question. Why aren't you doing it. They are a good thing to look at to keep you going is a podcast number eight. The two two word senses that always propel you forward because the thing is when you start a journey were most failure occurs this not in the beginning. How many times have you heard of a friend or a family member. Somebody you know. Just just crazy excited about students. Starting this whole new thing. I'm gonna do this. And i'm gonna do that quite honestly. One of the most annoying type person in the world is somebody tells you that over and over and over how. They're doing this and they're doing that. They're gonna have this great job or they're gonna go to this great place or other all. I'm talking about but they're always talking about getting started. They never duties Well these podcast will talk about two two word sentences that get you to where you need to be so the first two sentences now. What kind of question amnesty statement. I mean you've gotten to a certain place now. What or maybe the complex something will. You can't stay there forever so now. What and the second to toured sentence is when you get stuck after the now. What you kinda can't answer it. Well then ask yourself what if what if the conditions were different. What if i tried this thing. Those two sentences really help you define moving forward of asking yourself will now. Or what s so you can continue to move forward. Lastly a podcast number twelve five disciplines exponential growth really dig into how you can create a process because there's really five key categories that you have to put time and energy into no matter what you're trying to accomplish to get better because they talk about the very first one in a comparative to to the sport of a high school wrestling but it's kinda the same in life where the very first component is strength in. That's not just in the gym or how much you could bench that is. How much can you lift. How much can you do when you think about what stage you want to speak on or what even have to be something like that but what project you can do like. How much can you do. How much of an influence can you make with a group of people. That's a strength discipline. Number two is related to conditioning in strength and conditioning are not the same thing strength is how much can you move. Or how much can you influence. Conditioning is how long can you do it. How can you keep it up. How can you keep going for the long haul. So again like i said most people hope vale is starting something new at the beginning once they get started and they start to dig into something and then they kinda have those self doubts as kelly. Ken blanchard's situational leadership. Were step. one is. You don't know what you don't know you're just happy to be here. You're giddy. you got the job. You're super excited. You're starting this project and then you get into it and you go to face to where you start to know what you don't know and that's when it really digs in on you like wow. I'm a. I'm a fish out of water. I'm out of my league here. So that conditioning. How long can you go. That's what leads to discipline number three about technique about learning how to do something and that is different because that's the if for lack of a better term the technical side. How do you do what you're trying to do. And that's what i'm talking about really studied the masters of what they're actually doing which habit which things should you be doing. How should you be doing it. And that'll be a combination of learning from others and finding a way that suits you and how you do things so now alexei. We're talking about writing. Well if you're a writing style is a certain way you're like to write in the morning or late to write a ton at once or a little bit all lt but learning. It's hectic so you have strength how much you could lift how much you can do how much you influence conditioning. Can you do it before you run out of gas and do give yourself what i call a little mental gas stations along the way to keep you moving and then number three technique of learning the technical side of what you're actually trying to do so for example. When i started this podcast. I had to learn how to record how to edit in how to put it on a hosting site and all of those things that i'm still learning a lot of things because it's not where i want it to be but i don't look at other podcasts. Wish they could be like them. I look at mine is they. Okay how do. I get a little bit better than us. Where the technique comes in number four is kinda wraps up all three together and it's just simply mindset and i say simply mindset not that simple because that's one of the hardest hurdles because as my high school wrestling coach once said the mine always quits before the body. So if you're dedicated enough you probably pass out before you give up. Think about that That's kind of tough advice but the mental game of keeping yourself going of having the mindset had known him doing. I'm going in the right direction. I'm i'm starting to achieve the goals. All those kinds of things. I can keep going. That's keep those three together than once you have those four going forward going the right direction. The last thing you need is number five. The last discipline is community. And that means how do you show up in the communities you serve big about the pilot. Meeting talked about that. I go to once a month where. I am surrounded by much much much better pilots than i could ever be. Well hopefully I'm working on a slowly. But they're they're way ahead of me. But how do i up in that community. Doing be jealous. All of those things do a cower in the corner and say oh. I don't belong here. No you'll learn from it and you grow from it but depending on what you have all kinds of communities to show up for work community you can be part of a church community part of a city government committed. It doesn't matter facebook group who care in whatever community you're involved in but you need community because you're not gonna do stuff by yourself if you're going to accomplish anything will be just you on a stage somewhere if you wanted to influence or whatever abigail. That's the biggest thing about that followers on social media you about that So you need community so you need to work on all five but when you can take those is and break them down into just actionable items. Make that part of your checklist were am i in these these five different blocks and continue to grow as you focus on a process. A lot of that self doubt in anxiety and fear will always be there. But it'll be a lot less than what you'll bring to. The forefront is where you're going so understand that everybody at some point in their life has some form of imposter syndrome and the sooner you learn to deal with it the sooner you learn to set some of that aside in use it as a driver may just do whatever it is. You wanna do the better..
"ken blanchard" Discussed on The Ziglar Show
"When we get really focused on how we can serve others and solve problems and do it from the heart and do it with character and integrity and love and we value relationships and we celebrate those on our team all of those things all of those super high level cognitive things that make us unique they get they get amplified they get accelerated. And that's a that's a pretty cool place to be in so when i talk about disruption we're going to see in the next five years is nothing compared to what we've been through. You know what we've been through is nothing compared to what we're going to see in the next five years but i'm optimistic about it because i think we're gonna see the possibility because you know one person can do so much you get two or more working on something together. Three or more five or more in. But they're in that environment were were. Were supporting each other. We got each other's back. We're celebrating the growth. It's not one plus one equals two. You know it's two times two times two is what's going to happen. It's going to be crazy tom. You talking about the go where you're celebrated not tolerated. I just. I just wanted to hit on that because i think we can look at that and feel could easily jump into a victim mentality with that. Hey i'm not celebrated you know there's tolerate and point the finger there but back to attracting what you said attracting who you are. Are you celebrating. And you said that so many to some degree tom. Are you celebrating others. Are you being that person celebrating others as well. I know that. I can in in the right environment the wrong environment. Maybe i just tolerate people. Just go about keeping myself tolerate people. I'm not celebrating them. And yet if i then turn and go why am i not being celebrated well. I'm just tolerating them as well. So you know we gotta look at that and be honest now. I say that you can also go in with great intent and celebrate and celebrate and celebrate in some environments. You are not going to lift like you said tom. If they're you know negative enough it's going to bring everybody down to that level. So you folks you get a balanced. There's no black and white answer you've got to discern where you are but you know be aware of and cognizant of your own spirit. Are you celebrating tolerating those the people around you but then also the aware that sometimes it may be toxic enough or negative enough that you need to go. You need to go elsewhere. So that's one. That's i think calls us all to awareness. I got a couple interesting ones here tom. I wanted to hit on amber hendrickson. You talked about family businesses a minute ago and she says i know amber known her for a while she says it can be hard because i work with my significant other all day every day. We hardly get a break from each other. They run a food truck real a real successful food truck. She says maybe one night a month if that they get a break for each other otherwise. We're always together. Which is great most of the time because i love spending time with him but when we have a personal issue it bleeds into our workday. Our work issues arise and it bleeds into our personal lives. We really don't have a way to draw a line between the two since our business based out of the house and we never really leave work. We have a friend helping us some days and have tried hard to keep any issues and check so he isn't negatively impacted. He has told us many times. He loves coming to work because he enjoys his time spent with us and his pride in the product which has been a good motivator to remember that we all can affect each other very easily. Doesn't have to be just about families necessarily tom. I guess but i will speak to that. So nepotism that's the word. I actually got into that word from. Ken blanchard. ken blanchard. Most people know him. And he is. He's a proponent and advocate of nepotism of families working together and bring it family family members into the business. And obviously tom. you've done that. I mean my gosh. I think all you kids have worked in ziglar with your dad and now run the place as well. I mean my dad. I worked with him. Some my sister pretty much runs his business overall. So we see as. I have my dot you have. You've had daughter working with you. I've got my daughter One of my daughter's working with me as well. But that said you gotta you gotta look at the personalities. My wife and i i did work together at one point and then at one point decided. I don't know if that's best for us. We are very opinionated. Were very we have similar styles and it wasn't always the most healthy thing for our relationship and so for the most part. We don't do that and we do a lot together and share things but don't officially work together. So i wanna give that out there and just because you're married may have a great marriage may not mean that you work well together or should work together just because you have kids doesn't mean that you should are the but maybe you know maybe you can't balance that and i appreciate ambient open that it can. There's there's good and bad we've had a lot of people on the show that worked together just recently had mark victor hansen and and his wife crystal that work. I mean constantly together. It's doing doing really well. But i know plenty of other people who they don't do that they enjoy having centralized like my wife. She works in cognitive research. It's not my air. I don't know what. I don't understand half the published scientific papers that they do. I try to read them and give some kudos to them. But i don't know what they're talking about so both my my pay grade in that area and love that she has that pursuit and i have mine and she respects that but family business. Tom is you know. I mean can be glorious. But it's like everything there's pros and cons tensions that come with that. I think we all need to go in with open eyes with that and again i appreciate ambers honesty in that and that they're making it work but also open about the struggles. Yeah just just a couple of thoughts on that just from a personal relationship you know i love the five love languages and i love boundaries but also you know my question would be about the food truck business you know is the dream to expand into two food trucks and three food trucks and five food trucks and maybe a a regular business or is this is this just kind of this is all we want you know we just love doing this type of business together in.

"And i'll explain that in a minute but the first thing is you definitely have to have a mindset for grow in what can give you the biggest biggest return so when i say mindset for growth. I'm not talking about sales goals things like that. I'm talking about what is your mindset for growth with your people your team so think about it this way. Think about financial investments. Think about a bank savings account probably pays the lowest yield out of almost anything you can do so that is like i'm just keeping my money. It's safe right. It is not very volatile. So you may be thinking with your team while i'm gonna invest like that to where it's safe and i'll keep most of them by not really investing just a little but not spending too much time with it or you think about things like stocks where you pick the right stock. You can get a lottery turn. But there's a lot of gambling going on with that it would. It comes to individual stocks or even just some some stuff like bitcoin. Some things that are huge huge discussions about bitcoin crypto currency. And they're real and they work in all of those things but they're still very incredibly volatile in Is almost like investing in a flavor of the month. You think about all. We're going to have a company cookout or do this or do that. Try and keep the teen motivated. It kinda comes and goes or would you really think about is mutual funds where you are spreading out investments in several different buckets. Give you a return and that is a lot more like leadership. That is a lot more like okay. I'm going to invest with the team. I'm going to invest in individuals and even with that you're going to break that down into what those individuals need like.

Are they clear on what they should be doing. Speaking understand what your team goes through. That's where you really learn with your feedback and probing questions. What are they actually going through. One thing you can do if you really wanna dig deep is anonymous surveys and come up with some really creative questions about how they view their job. View their value. Are they valued in really dig a little deeper into how. Your team really looks at erie leadership or at your company. You're at their environment. Another thing to really key it on is how do you meet. What kind of meetings you have. What is the purpose of your meetings. People have meetings just to have meetings and makes no sense if it doesn't really drive forward. The strategy mission envision the daily behaviors decisions of. Does it give people information.

"This place was made for them. That's the kind of visit on talking about. It is not just just putting some words on the wall is how you create senses incites and sounded if if whatever it is you're trying to come up with if you can picture what the most perfect version of that that's was on your vision that you've created at the you've created those feelings and it's not just your job to create the vision you also have to drive the vision and won't be pulling some key phrases from this vision that will become your action items for your mission statement and that's where we'll start to create some action for your vision Turn into a reality. It has to take action because simply you can't just have something on a wall in. Just look at it from time to time. You're getting ready to actually go on a jury so another example for creating vision is a personal vision in this process. Works for personal goals as well regardless of money ear which you might have now how you live your life. What kind diversity. One of the is totally up to you. So here's a little personal vision. Might look like it will be as Examples when you talk about was imported to you things like morning workouts before anybody else gets up or maybe you get up and do some meditation or journal how you prepare for the day. What is your commitment to your profession. How do you connect to your friends and most importantly your personal vision. Does it reflect what you want to be known for. So lastly you know. How do you have a visit. Establish company already has on. So i use it absolutely support. Your current company's vision after you work there and they are paying. You might be a good idea to support him. But think about your gold. Cabbie staff your circle. Vince laments versus your concern. What you do in that space. Oh great example this is the vote gung ho by ken blanchard in sheldon bowles. But a great book. That's a perfect example of vision where the organization they work for. This manufacturing plant was just a nightmare. Disaster by this one department was absolutely running perfectly and they did it on their own. Made him do it. They just decided this is how they were going to run. Wander ticket that in putting that through the rest of the plane in turning everything around so even in your own space for the majority of us that do work larger corporations when you really think about it. They really really isn't much holding you back from doing something like this. You can't do it on your own so look for things that you can actually create a in order to do that so looking at what our vision was we can pull some key phrases from their season about things like comforting aroma. Fresh ground coffee baking items fresh from the other variety holiday known throughout the community known not have good stuff is everybody knows it. That's a huge difference person. Happy to see them caused by. He can't wait to help them. truly enjoys creating amazing products. And how each team member interacts with each other than this place was made for them..

"Brennan at ken. Blanchard podcast. but you can't compare your stat. Wanted somebody step twenty five. That's kind of what i think. People back is the instant success gratification. And i think they're never gonna get it their to lose this that they just give up and it's kinda sad so brings me to songs from the boss. I was eighties raf it. I mean that's just who i am. But they're song rock and roll band perfectly pointed out all the sacrifices they made so let me just read. A few here says playing in all the bars sleeping in our cars. We practiced right out in the street. No we didn't have much money. We barely made enough to survive but when we got up on stage and got ready to play people alive then later in the song it paid off his lyrics skill length this a man came to the stage. One night he smoked. A big cigar drove a cadillac car. Instead boys at disbands out of sight. Sign a record company contract you know. I've got great expectations. When i hear you on the car radio you're gonna be sensation. That's how how things started you keep going into you find that right opportunity and maybe it is collaborating with others. Need help you may be. It is creating that product. Finally that people just love or getting in front of companies. How many times have you heard over and over and over of you being told. Now you product doesn't work are you musics. no going. Mark are just stories that can shut most people down and they just kinda can't believe later they are able to turn that around obviously listen to eighties rocky. Oh boston's a huge network also reminds me or other song by boston. Calm peace of mind were essentially kind of bothers me a little bit in their song. The song starts with now. If you're feeling kind of low but the dues you've been paying futures coming to slow you want to run but somehow you just keep on staying. Can't decide on which way to go on a lack of direction it's a lack of it might lose one on putting in worth it yuna give up too soon or you disdain. With things don't work too much and it is great. But here's where. I have a problem later in the song that now they want to quantify what is a good dream in was not good. So now you're climbing to the top of the company ladder. Hope it doesn't take too long to see the common day where all matter come monday when you'll be gone so dan their dream about becoming a big rock and roll just right under street. They had hardly any money they didn't. They did what they needed to do to live their dream. Good lord. how many times have you heard of somebody. China do the job wife. they're never gonna make it. The odds are against them. That here in this song will. What if you wanna climb the company ladder. Go for it you. You run that big company. Nobody should be telling you what your dreams should be. It can be anything it.
