In perceived dig, discern all those things and you hear the problem you hear the challenge of the need, and then you've got to come and begin to coach and teach. And Guide if you will, and then at the end, you know it's Here's your homework assignment. You've got this I believe in you get after it and that's the cheerleader thing. So I had a sense. Of very clear sense. Of what the content was, which was what had helped change my life. When I went through, you know at the age of thirty, one, thirty, two, I'm faced with a real career crisis in that this fire in the belly I had had for public service in politics went away. And I had been aiming towards that and making progress towards that since the age of sixteen. So was a really confusing time for me and so in that time of wrestling through while I know that it's not politics I'm not one, hundred six, you're what it is. And this isn't very difficult to understand. But when clarity doesn't exist confusion reigns, right? Right. You know confusions runs like a cockroach Dila Corner when you turn the light on room and so going through the process that I went through getting Pete Richardson was really informative in my life and some other people and I went through the exercises that Pete told me to do. It was really a self-awareness deep dive. It's a that process gave birth to what I'm doing now. So I was I wanted to give that clarity to somebody else to a lot of somebody else's
When Can I Move Up in House?
"Andrews in. San. Antonio Texas. What's up? How are you? Deserve man, how can I help? Awesome I had a question So I'm like you in San. Antonio on the military right now got about probably three years left about and I actually called. I spoke to Ken, Coleman a couple of weeks ago and he encouraged me that this is probably should should probably look at me and my last and most because it just doesn't line up with my goals anymore. So we're we're kind of looking at that transition and were plotting a move to the Nashville area actually ended this most met. In the rest of America. Okay. So the House that we're living now is very much a starter home. We bought it only here for about one seventy and we're just wondering at what point is appropriate mathematically to move up in house because we live in like you'd like to be in a nicer part of town. Eventually you know a little bit bigger and so we're just trying to figure out like mathematically how to make that happen without like starting over on the mortgage you know. Okay well you number one, you wouldn't do this until you move. To Nashville. Ride that house for three years it doesn't make sense to buy and sell a house inside of three years. Right we're not looking at doing this now, I'm just just a planning purpose. So you sell the house there you move to Nashville start, your new career by another house, right? Right, and then he would start a new mortgage on a fifteen year fixed rate. Here's the thing when someone says starting over on the mortgage that makes me think you believe that all the interest on mortgages paid upfront. which is not true by the way. Do you think that? No I don't think. Okay. So, what's your all your starting over as you have a different debt, a bigger debt or a smaller debt. So what are you currently San Antonio House. Currently owe one, fifty five. Okay. So if you buy one fifty, five at the same interest-rate or less in Nashville which would be very hard to do or the Nashville market, you could get out in the country you might way out in the country might pull it off. Okay. But Anyway if you did that mathematically speaking. You would exactly star where you are today. You would just move the one, fifty five at the same interest rate over here, and if it was the same number of years, you've lost zero ground the only way you lose ground as you go further in debt, which you said I, WanNa move up in house. That's cool. So let's say you buy three hundred, thousand dollar house because your career, your new career pays more than your career. And you move to Nashville by three thousand dollar house. Now, that's a little more feasible okay and so. Now, you've doubled your mortgage. So what you've started over is twice as much debt. But nothing else started over other than that. Okay. Yeah. That makes sense how many years remaining on your current mortgage. We've only lived in this house for just less than a year. So we've got fourteen years. You did a year. Okay. So when you move, you would have eleven years left. You did my scenario on eleven years regardless of the amount you took out, you would still be debt free it exactly the same time agreed. That sounds yeah which you wouldn't do that. You'll probably get a new fifteen year three, hundred, three, hundred, twenty, five, thousand or whatever number it is when you move up, that's fine as long as it's on a fifteen year fixed the payments no more than a fourth of your take home pay. But that's how it's GonNa work. So sit tight where you are, and then as you arrange yourself into the new career three years from now and you decide which city you're gonNa live in for sure you start shopping for real estate and start figuring out how much we actually can afford based on your new income to purchase on a fifteen year fixed rate where the payments no more than a fourth, your take home pay, and that'll keep you between the ditches brother. Thank you for your service. We really really appreciate cash.
Why Talking Politics Could Be Hurting Your Career
"SO MONSTER DOT com. PADS done a survey. And they pulled people and they came up with that close to forty percent of American workers, Joe Engage in political discussions at work. Now, this is funny. In the Control Room Madison does not engage in political discussions probably not even outside of work she does not. Joe Engages in political discussions at work at home. Sleep talking sleepwalking he is engaging in political discussion, but I'm trying to cut it down a little bit. I'm not judging you. I'm just saying that it's very funny to me that this is what I'm teaching on today and you and Madison are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Yes, we are. All right. Here's the breakdown nearly forty percent engage in active political discussion at work thirteen point nine percent. Of people actively engaged. That's Joe I I thought it would be higher by the way, but it's it's right at fourteen percent. Thirty four point, eight percent. Say. They listen to political discussions at work but don't participate. and. Then twenty three point one percent passively engage in the discussion. So, that's where the forty percent engagement number comes at I gotTa tell you. That if you're listening but not participating, you're engaging. So I think that number's higher but I get what they're saying when it comes to engage because here's what Saudi these thirty four point, eight percent that say well, I'm listening but I don't participate and these people are going. Well, that's not engaged yet is because here's what's happening there listening and later when when everybody that's like really engaged leaves they're talking about it to everybody else and this is my point why this is dangerous. Here's the deal I used to work in politics. Joe knows this Madison as. I worked at it fulltime from the age of twenty, two, twenty three and then got out I love politics and the game and I love following it. Okay. I'll love it as much as anybody I. Enjoy a good political discussion as much as anybody. Well here's one thing I've learned Joe and I'm passing this onto the audience never once in my life ever. Have I heard somebody with a strong political opinion in a social gathering in an engaged conversation or debate. Let's be honest. That's what it turns into. I've never seen or heard somebody change somebody's mind Thanksgiving table or at the workplace never once. So. What happens is you engage? and. Their spirited conversation. It turns into possibly a debate. or a contentious situation and no matter how strong your logic is no matter how clear you're talking points are Joe you are not going to change the person's opinion. You're not. It just never happens. It's never like Oh, really. So. Here's the point when politics come up. It's probably best. To just listen not participate. That's what thirty four point eight percent of people are doing. Probably a good idea to just listen and not get involved because here's what happens. One conversation happens and I've done this by the way and you think you're having a fun healthy spirited conversation and you make a really strong point on something and somebody who's not engaged with you walks up and hears it and they are of a very different opinion. Now, all of a sudden you offended them. Don't even talk to them.

Can you imagine face to face have an interview and you do one of these numbers? Yeah Yeah. Sorry. I got a text from the wife. Could you imagine? and. Yet because the video interview and it's buzzing, people are looking down and they're looking at their phone or something else and they're fidgeting around and moving around and this is bad bad bet. It's a distraction for you and the person interview number to watch the up and down I move across the screen. I never thought about this until reading this article this really true when you're on a screen. and. You're doing a conversation with somebody you tend to your eyes are darting all around screen time. Is it here? I'm looking down here to get a couple of emails o a chat just came or whatever, and you're not looking at the person here's the deal just because it's a video interview, you need to have the same rules as an in person interview. We all know those people you meet them at an event and you're talking to them and they're scanning over your shoulder to see if there's somebody more interesting to look at Voi-. Number three. Don't be visibly worried and distracted by things. You can't control the home environment mishaps as Hell hanes refers to this has never this is key to here. Folks has never botched a really good interview. So the interviews going great and let's say a dog and this is what he says. I've Seen Dogs Butts Behind People's heads I've seen ups, guys at the door I've seen people do interviews with two year old, Noor Lap. The more natural. You are the better and this is an interesting statement hanes all these. Home. Environment mishaps in the middle of the interview have actually enhanced our ability to judge the real person.

Free resources that can come dot com how to win the interview and Hanes says, consider in advance. What questions you'll be asked You keep the person engaged make sure that you keep people engaged you do that by preparing ahead of time so you've got a really good answer
Going From Homeless To Hired
"Williams. Last. You've. Had Fallen on hard times and was now living in her car and she would park it. Outside of a kroger back in the parking lot far back in the parking lot in our state here of Tennessee this is a national story now in people magazine. This is her quote. She said I would lean my seat all the way back. So no one would see me because you know I knew I wasn't supposed to be there. But she eventually cross paths with the Kroger hiring manager a lady by the name Jackie Vandal who gave her a heads up about an upcoming, job? Fair. After Williams was repeatedly asking her if the store was hiring. So there's the first she is on really Really thin ice in that she's sleeping in the parking lot and if they figure out that she sleeping in the parking lot, they're going to kick around parking lot. So she's Kinda got that risk factor going on and she's on hard times big time and yet she keeps showing up she keeps going hey, are you hiring are hiring? Are you hiring at the lowest point of her life her desire even though that she's really really doubt her desire to climb out is so strong she risks getting found out so. This is the quote from Jackie Vandal. She says, you get a feel of someone sincere or if they're just trying to get a job to say they got one and then quit a month later I could tell she was very sincere. It was a gut feeling. So. vandal tells Williams to submit our application online. Williams retrieves an old laptop from car and spins out filling out the application with vandals help as soon as she submitted at Vandal hire on the spot. I love that story because the hiring manager decides to help her out. Not. Just given the job by saying you've gotta fill this thing out she sits in the car with her helps are filled this application out. and. Once she goes through the final step of hitting submit. She hires her why she wanted to see her go through the whole process. There's some wonderful wonderful teacher if you're going to help somebody. That really needs it. I really believe there's something to making them do some things. To prove to you and to them that they are willing to do what it takes and this lady Shiva Williams was and she'd been dealing with a lot of abuse physical abuse mental and. Verbal abuse. And she's been at the store. This is at the end of two, thousand and nineteen. She's been at the store the entire year of twenty twenty and has made the most of this opportunity. She saved up enough money to get her own apartment and then her workers came together to help her furnish it. Oh, my goodness that feels good. What's the, takeaway. The takeaway I think is twofold number one. If you're really down doesn't matter if you're in the situation that this fabulous lady was in. But you're just really down. Your desire to get out of that is what's going to fuel the climb. Secondly, if you come across someone who's really really down and you can see they've got a genuine desire. To climb out, you owe it to them. The SNOT, an accident you owe it to them. To reach. down. Let them, take your arms, your hands, and help him come out. They gotTA put some effort into it. Yes. But you owe it to him. So what a story listen to Williams I'd love to meet her. Because I think that is an inspiring story and also the hiring manager Jackie vandal. Love to meet her.
Headhunters vs. Recruiters (What's The Difference?)
"HEAD-HUNTER VERSUS RECRUITER What is the difference? There are some differences and I WANNA point out that while I am. Very very dogged in my belief that your web of connections is the best way to get hired it absolutely is. Okay your relationships and we're really talking about the relationships that you would say are outside that inner circle of family and close friends. But really acquaintances that is we know from sociology studies where most people find opportunities for great jobs is through your extended web of connections think spiderweb that the the the center of that Web, and then the the spider builds that well about in a fan if you will fan like motion and and so as you look on the outer edge there, that's where great opportunities most of the time exists an extension. Of that close personal network and so I'm always gonNA that is the best way to go about it, but it is not the only way and I really do believe in. What I would call the extra arrows in your quiver, the Arrow of over cruder. I think it's a wonderful wonderful service now companies. A high percentage I don't know the number off the top of my head, but it's high percentage of companies. In America, use recruiters or headhunters. There is a difference in the head hunter is is is somebody is an individual that works for company or maybe they worked for themselves and they are out looking for potential candidates. That the company is looking to fill. So they're out looking on behalf of the company. So they're they're out searching. Okay. The company wants this I gotTa, go find it. And the recruiter is slightly different. In that the recruiter is involved in the hiring process itself. So they're posting job openings there the initial contact person. There prescreening candidates to help move the hiring process along for the company and the recruiter is usually working with multiple types of job markets. And while they do specialize a recruiter, a recruiting company has a vast amount of specialist in their company and they're out. Looking for specific jobs, specific industries. So a slight difference there my wife Stacy is is is now in recruiting, she loves it. She's always been a coach at heart just like me. And so we're going to be sharing some more information on my instagram patients. They stay tuned instagram linked in I am unlinked in as well. On helping you figure out. Okay. How do I engage with a recruiter? What type of recruiter my looking for? and. How do I choose? To work with the right recruiter. What am I what am I needing to assess and how does that? Engagement. With a recruit or how does that fit my strategy kin of using my web of connections and using the proximity principle? So we're going to be teaching more on that on my instagram page very very soon but I think it is very important that you understand that that recruiter is and then recruiting firms. Those are very valuable sources for you that can open up doors when you are struggling to find that right connection and it's Taking, a little bit longer then you have and so employ both strategies is really important but make sure that you feel good about the recruiter that they really understand who you are and the type of work that you want to do. So that what we teach here on the show the sweet spot, they need to know all that and you need to be very, very aggressive in helping them understand that so is they're looking for things. They are seeing more opportunities than maybe they would. If they just felt like, well, I'm just trying to slap them into a job, fit? No, it's not about just the resume lining up with the job description it really needs to be in your sweet spot. So good information here that you need to know.
Google Career Certification Versus College Degree (Who Wins?)
"Article. From INC magazine about Google's recent announced if you missed this, this is really exciting. Google has plans now. To come up with their career certificate program for a while and they recently announced that they're launching it. It's called Google career certificates. It is a collection of courses. That will help those who take courses get qualified in high pain high growth jobs. And they don't have to attend. A college or university. That is significant folks. Not, because it's a brand new idea. This isn't a new idea at all. To offer. Certification Training that don't require a student or participant to darken the door of a college classroom and it gets them qualified this not a novel idea. The reason that this is so significant is because Google is behind it. We're talking about one of the most powerful companies in the universe. Massive brand awareness massive brand credibility. So when Google says, Hey, we're launching a certification program trust me. Parents adults like you who want to make a transition. You aren't doing what you love and the only thing standing in your way is. Stage two of our seven stages which is getting qualified. It's all of a sudden. This is going to be very accessible. Now, here's the deal just a few details. It's a six month program. So all of these certifications are running six months and at a fraction of college costs. No here's how this is going to change the landscape. This is going to threaten higher education. Make mistake about higher education is going to have to pivot. They'RE GONNA have to get more innovative and start off. Education. In the form of Real, life? That allow students to say, Hey, I'm not stuck in college debt and can't get a job I. I'm not dead it's affordable and casual my way through it. And I'm now going to be able to step into something that I. Really. WanNa do. This is what Google is going to do. They're going to change the landscape. Now here's something else that's going to happen. because. It's Google. Other companies. I believe Ramsey solutions will eventually do this. But other large companies will say. What we're going to create our own job training program. We know we're, hiring for character. And a culture fit. And then we can train people. Who have the raw talent we can train them for the skill that they need. To win here, and that's what we need out of people. Companies are going to start to go If Google's doing it, we can do our own training program. That's GonNa Really. Change. Things. Folks. When kids can come right out of high school and get right into the workforce for good companies. Because companies go. We don't really need the degree requirement anymore we're going to step up our hiring game and our interview process. And we're going to hire really quality people's we're looking for character here and good culture fit. Personality fit. PASSION FIT And then we'll train them on the actual skills. And you're GONNA see companies that are hiring. More and more go you know what? We're going to drop the college degree requirement. But you do have to have this certification that's going to be good for you the worker.

"Welcome back. This is the Ken Coleman show on Sirius XM. This is the show where we discussed. What is it that you were created to? Do you have a unique role and the world needs that from you and we don't care what has happened to you up to this point. What messages have been put on you. What lies you're listening to from others or from yourself, you're not damaged goods. Your valuable and the value is that you were created with talents, and you can develop skills from those talents and you are created with a heart that longs to matter not just to yourself but to others. And when you step into that reality. And you discover who you are and what you want to do and why you want to do it. You begin to research where you can do it the best way to get there. You come up with a plan. Because you've got clarity and confidence that plan's gonna get you where you wanna go, and then you have to step out. You have to embark on the journey you have to push off the greatest visual of this. I think for many of us is stepping out onto a new path or I love the the idea of a little wooden boat and you push off the dock and you don't have a motor. Because the journey to. Your dream destination to fulfill your purpose? Rarely has a motor to it in the early days. The engine comes along later, you begin to move a little faster once you have logged a lot of miles. So I think pushing off from that dock with some rose in your of physical effort and just incremental movement. That's why like the idea of the old wooden boat push off from the dock, and I'm just rowing. And I'm, hey, sometimes I've got the current going with me sometimes. I have some choppy water coming my way. Oh boy. And then there's the waves how many of you have just gotten absolutely blindsided by wave recently, it happens to all of us. And, but as we embark and we stay with it, we don't quit Rohan. Then we come along somebody who's got old outboard motor for sale, and we pick that up and boy, we get some momentum there. Point is we keep moving to move into movement at some point you arrive. At that dream destination the place of calling. I call it the sweet spot. The intersection of your great talent and your great passion. You get to use your talent to do what you love to do most. But when we arrive, are we hopping in the hammock with a glass of sweet tea. And reminiscent on how great the journey was to this point. No, why are we there? We are there. Circling back around to the start of this, were there for others there for us? Is it satisfying? Yes. Is there great meaning? Yes. But we are there at our destination. Where we are maximizing our purpose for the benefit of others. If you're paying attention to home, I just gave you a little teaching on dream d. r. e. m. discover research embark arrive maximize. That's what it's all about.

I want you to know what the signs are because I think that these signs sometimes all seem a little shocking that a breakthrough might be around the corner because it's generally a breakthrough comes in the midst of hardship and a lot of negative stuff. And I want to encourage you and shine the light on some situations you might be in right now and you're down about it, but I'm going to suggest and show you that you should be hopeful about us. That's coming up a little bit later. And then on Fridays, we love to have some good news can encourage you. Some real people doing some extraordinary things in everyday life guaranteed to make you.
