"Peace, and that's, I think that the highest level of currency for me in my life right now. Because I had so much lack of peace for so many years and different relationships. I take responsibility for a lot of it, but right now, to have peace is incredible. And so people feel like you want to say, you want, oh, it's fireworks. It's all this. I now go in my life and I go, I want to breathe easy. Relax. I want to, I think about coming home. Being accepted, being yes, and just knowing it's like a warm blanket. Like when you're in your comfiest sweats and you're at home and you've ordered and take out and you're with this person that just makes you like breathe. That's when you found the right person. What would you do if you could go back and speak to 20 year old Kendra? What would you say to her about love? I would tell her it's going to be okay and that on those days we know you go through a breakup. It is and you know I see my sons in relationships now and like that young love and oh my God and I just know I know how hard it is because I remember that. Oh, you just feel like you're gonna die. I mean you really do. I mean you and you go through some breakups it is not easy. But I think you're gonna be okay and that think about the things that you loved about this person and think about the things that maybe didn't work so good. And then next time when you start dating somebody, you're gonna see some of those things that you loved in the person that you had this relationship with. But you may not see some of those things that you didn't. You're gonna identify the things that you did it. And if we can start even with business and other failures, think about it with relationships the same way, this person may be the reason to get you to that next person. I know that seems horrible to think about because we want every love to be like the love. Yes. But there's a lesson in every relationship, even friendships that we have. The Friends that make us feel so good when we're around them and bring out the best in us and the Friends that make us feel bad about ourselves or bring out the worst in us. You start to see those in people, right? And as you start to grow in your own life and some people are lucky, I mean, one of my best Friends they met at 14, they're married. They have grandkids. Oh my God. I mean, they have kids and grandkids. They're madly in love with each other. And I look at them all the time and think, wow, that is a beautiful, amazing thing. And not that they haven't gone through ups and downs over all these years together. But that's okay if your life doesn't turn out like that, every person in our lives has come to our lives for a reason and there's a lesson that we can learn from them. Good and sometimes bad. That's going to get us to this next beautiful place to hopefully find peace and happiness. I've got a couple of final questions for you. I'm curious about if you could go back and tell her to learn three specific skills. It could be personal skills, emotional skills, business skills, what skills do you wish you would have been able to learn faster at 20? At 20, I would have told myself Kendra, you

"And so we see our customers over 20 years who and we've built such a connection with her and him now. That it's such a cool thing to see as a brand. So how do you, I mean, with someone, I'm not in this industry, obviously, I don't understand, but with let's say a brand that only focuses on the high end jewelry. The engagement rings and the more expensive jewelry. And that's all the obsessive about. They don't have the other two lines. Right. The generations of lines, I guess. How do you compete as a brand with a specialist brand? That just does that. Well, first of all, I always tell everybody, if you're doing what everybody else is doing, you're already failed. It's one of my favorite things to say. You got to be disruptive. So if you're doing high end fine jewelry, you have to have your own unique fingerprint on it. You are what makes it great. Your personal brand, who you are, your aesthetic. So be you. Don't try to be all the jewelry brands that are out there. You have to be you and you have to be doing something different, unique, and bringing something to a customer that nobody else is offering her. So that's the most important thing. Whether that's through experience, whether that's through product, whatever it might be. It could be a combination for us as a combination of all those things, like the experience has to be amazing on wherever she's shopping. The product has to be amazing. So do I so the only, I don't know, the jewelry world. So I know I've heard Tiffany's, right? So it's like, how do you just an example? How would you compare yourself? Or how do you say, okay, we're going to try to draw in some of the audience that would normally go for a brand like Tiffany's and have them have one of our engagements. Yes. How do you think about that? So I think about it from a customer perspective. I think about the shopping experience, Tiffany's. I love Tiffany's and who doesn't, okay? But I think it's a very high end. It can be intimidating. It's under the glass. And you can go in there and you can feel it. Right. People. And in any store and I'm not because I'm not saying it's Tiffany but I've gone into stores as Kendra Scott in my workout clothes, my hair and a ponytail, sweaty after the time.

"Monthly payments to manage people to manage all the softwares you're paying for, all the logistics, this many things entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. You don't go into entrepreneurship because you think, oh, I want to just have my own business and be my boss. Nobody's going to tell me what to do. Oh, honey. Everyone was telling you what you do. Everyone's your boss. And you are going to be working so much harder than you've ever in your life. But if you're working for something that you're passionate about, you're excited about. I mean, for me, I would get up and still get up every morning and I can not wait to be part of my business. I love designing. I love my customers so much. I love their stories. I love meeting them. I love my family at Kendra Scott that we've built, you know, I love it. And if you don't love it, you can't do it. And if you're just doing it for money, stop right now. Because that's not going to get you through and you will never become successful. Because for ten years, you weren't really thriving financially. I mean, the business was growing and you were making good salary, but you weren't like, I've got all this money in the world now. No, no. Ten years. Ten years ago. After ten years, it was still so hard. Every day. So hard. But then, you know, you start to see and like, again, the recession hit things change. My business was changing. And we were starting to see, and it was lightning in a bottle. That's cool. It was 5 million to 25 million in sale. 25 million to 75 million the next year. I mean, we weren't just doing we were growing at this unbelievable rate, but that ten years of authentic dedication, love, standing by our core values, really just creating something and listening to our customer and being agile and pivoting when we needed to. Not being so laser focused and it has to be this way. If the pandemic hasn't taught us that, I don't know what it is. I always say, you know, if you looked at my plan in 2020, I wish I had a piece of paper. I ripped it in half before. I looked in half. You have to be able to be agile. And shift, okay? With this upcoming recession that might be happening. We don't know. Be agile. Your plan that you have today may not be the plan that's going to look like it as you go down and traverse this next year or two or three years or whatever. Flexible. Be flexible. So where you're at now is completely different than the plan you had two years ago. Totally. What do you think was the factor that got you from the 25 to 75 million like that fast? Was it? What were the couple of shifts that you did that allowed for that growth? Yeah, so within you and then tactics. Yeah, so within myself, I felt like I had the confidence to, okay, my family's going to be okay. We're not going to be on the streets. That's like we're going to be okay. I could really start to think outside of the box. Take some risks. And I was seeing this magic happening in our store that we were walking into every day. And the lines and the it's crazy. My office set right above that store. And I could feel the roar. That's gotta be amazing. Laughter and people having fun and the energy, this store was creating, and I knew that this was magic. And so we started opening stores. So you said one then. And then we started opening stores and opening stores.

"And we realized that this is the missing link. But it all came from a shake the snow globe moment of the recession. Right. For us to think differently, because we were doing okay, we weren't making any big headlines, but we were paying the rent and I was being able to put my kids through school and things were good, right? But that recession was the greatest gift Kendra Scott ever got. And you would think that sounds crazy, but I say it's a ribbon wrapped in yellow was our future was because it forced me to think differently. What is this? What looks like recession forcing you to think differently about the next evolution? Well, we don't know for sure if we're in a recession yet. You know, look. It looks like. But I also think it's economic challenge. I get excited now. Which seems really weird. What is the thing that what's your blind spot that you haven't yet looked at within your business, that if you really start to peel back or lean into in a different way could explode it to a nice level? When you think about when I started my company, it was cade was born, two months after 9 11. Wow. I started at one of the most unstable times in our history. I started a business. Crazy. Here we are. 2008. One of the biggest economic crisis that we faced in our lifetime happens. My business becomes lightning in a bottle growth afterwards because of that shake up. The pandemic scary, closing stores. It made me think about how we relate to our customer differently. Where is she and how do I meet her there? Does she need curbside? Just we need to make mobile access better. Does she need virtual styling? Things that we were doing were doing now is every day as part of our business because the pandemic had us thinking about where our customer was. So when you think about these things that are happening, it is fear is good. Normal. But usually on the other side of fear, something great. Yeah, of course. And if you can get through that scary that's scary phase that uncomfortable phase and go, how am I going to make my business better today? How am I going to make my customer happier today? How am I going to understand where they are so that I can be there for them in this moment of whatever it is we're going through, those are the businesses that are not only going to make it through this period, but they're going to absolutely thrive. So how many stores do you start with one in Austin? How many stores do they get to before 2020? We were at just about a hundred. Hundred stores around the country or around the country. That's a lot of stores. Hundred of your own stores, not like other countries. Kendra Scott stores. Hundred stores. Now we are over a 120. 120. Did you have to close any of you said though? Well, we close and temporarily during the pandemic, but we were really creative and a 120. It's incredible. March 16th, I closed those stores and my birthday. Is it? Yeah. That was like the week of the pandemic. Yeah. And I was like, happy birthday to me.

"Boston is for real. And down, down at 8th, potential first round opponent is Kevin Durant, maybe Kyrie Irving maybe Ben Simmons, and obviously PJ Tucker was on the team last year to guard Kevin Durant, and you could say, well, look, I mean, Kevin Durant went bananas in that series. Did PJ Tucker really matter, but they didn't have to like double and triple Kevin Durant. So I think you met her a little bit. Which of those teams, if any, do you find yourself not necessarily worried about but thinking about the matchup the most? Like when you're just sitting around thinking basketball like, oh, that matchup. How would I guard that guy? How are they going to guard us? Which one of those is most interesting to you? Well, I mean, and it's interesting the way it stands now. Maybe get a chance to exercise the raptor demon from a couple of years ago, which would be good for these guys because it still sits in a bad spot within I was talking to Chris Middleton just the other day about that. It's got to be to me. I think Brooklyn, you know, I mean, I have so much respect for KD and his ability to take over. I mean, the shot that he hit against Dallas. I think it was just yesterday whenever it was in witty knocks down to three to win it. But this shot going to the left. I mean, they were trying to double him, bring another definitive. He gets to his spot elevates, you know, nothing but it's crazy. His solution to being double teamed on the perimeter is I'm 7 feet tall. I'm just going to jump. I can't jump and shoot. I'll shoot him before he gets here. You know, that could be 20 feet, that could be 28 feet. It doesn't matter. He's getting it up before you get there, and he's so locked in on that rim, Kyrie, 60 points driving the ball like crazy to the basket. He concerns me in terms of presenting that as much as I love drew's defense guys like Kyrie or guys that can that can nullify some of that great defense that drew could put it because he's got that capability. That's true can only guard one guy. He can only there's only one drew. He can't guard KD and Kyrie. But Kyrie's capability with his handle. His handle is just so tight that it's just hard to, you know, he plays, it gives you just a hard 35 to 40 minutes in a playoff series, just trying to stay with them and negotiate screens and keep it in front of you. So it would probably be what you mentioned Boston Boston right now, having watched him a lot since they've turned things around, but you keep reading about them. You keep seeing what they're doing as a team. And you see in the results of what they're doing as a team. And they're an interesting team. Tatum and Brown and smart and that crew and then the Horford did. The element he gives them. But I'd have to still say that anytime and with Brooklyn, I think they've been reading all the stuff. They know that all this stuff about KD and if he had a shoe size or, you know, half a size smaller, all that. But remember, he played Daniel the whole game, the last three or four games of the series fatigue makes cowards of us all. It gets us into a mindset where we're not thinking, you know, as sharply as we should be thinking. And remember, after he set the game in overtime, he airballed a jumper that could have whatever tied to the one at the very end there. So, but I think they've got something to show themselves to show the world that, you know, healthy and whole, they're going to come in and just it's still some question as to how much the new additions have been Simmons, how much he's going to bring to the table. What does he get? I mean, the back, all this stuff that's going on now, how much they can get that chemistry together in a short period of time. And then I got to have a whole lot of time to develop some really, really kind of championship caliber chemistry. So that to me could play in the bug's favorite, but still you look at them on paper and they kind of scare me more than anybody right now. Any team with KD is going to scare you. Philly's interesting because they've had embiid guard Giannis a lot of match ups in the past and I feel like Giannis has solved pretty much every individual matchup like we're like Boston I think would tell itself we've got three four guys. We could put on Yanis and feel like not terrible about it. Grant Williams and Al Horford and Robert Williams Horford was like the Giannis anecdote, but that's like four years ago now. You solved that one a long time ago. Time lord, that's going to be tough for him. So we'll see. But I still feel like I would pick the bucks to win these. I love that they're still bitter about the raptors. I just thought you win a championship you forget all that they're still upset about that? We're up to love, and we were just kind of waltzing our way into the NBA Finals and up to love and they go to Toronto for game three. I was talking to Chris about, I told you, you know, I think he missed it. We didn't play well, gave three. He missed a shot that could have won the game, right it toward the end of regulation or whatever it was and just to be so close. And so yeah, but no, you know, they wouldn't probably admit it like it's readily as Chris talked about it with me, but I know for a fact that there is still some I feel like that's a bad sign for the rest of the east. They're not resting on their laurels of having won the title. Like they're hungry. Well, and that's the thing..

"Is giving them all of that right now and to your point, I thought for the first part of the season, he was very clearly interested in scoring and taking the ball to the basket. And like you said, I mean, you blink and this dude is not at the rim. He is on top of the rim. He looks like he's gonna eat the rim for a snack when he's going up to dunk on it. And not only that, but as you said, in the last month, I think he's really kind of eased into the dribble handoff, read and react, flare screen. It's not natural maybe for him. He's still learning it and you can tell he's not as snappy snappy snappy as the veterans, but who is. I mean, we're talking about genius players to draymond green and Andrew. But he's starting to get it and he's starting to move the ball and he is shooting 33% on threes. I don't mind when he takes wide open threes and defensively, I mean, I was watching them play the Lakers a few weeks ago, there was a span in which within 45 seconds you guarded Russ, LeBron, and Anthony Davis last night he's guarding Tatum and brown. He's gonna make some mistakes, particularly off the ball, but he's got so many tools. I just think they're gonna need them. I don't know if the coaches are gonna trust them 'cause you know what's gonna happen. He's gonna, he's gonna lose track of a shooter off the ball and the guy's gonna make a three and the coaches are gonna be like, we just can't hats. I don't know. I think they're gonna need them. I think it's gonna be, it might come down to situational things, right? And you mentioned Gary Payton before. So if they need a scenario where they just need a lockdown defender, okay, you bring in Gary Payton if you need someone to go just be incredibly athletic and just attack attack attack. Maybe you go to Jonathan kamina, but it's changed from there's no way that they're going to see playoff minutes or meaningful playoff minutes to there is a strong possibility that if things are going well and things are going right for the warriors and the postseason. Yeah, we're probably going to see him and Moses moody. I agree with you. James wiseman is not going to be a factor in the playoffs. This season. I've been told that he's probably won't because the thing that Jonathan and Moses have done is earn the trust of Steve Kerr and the coaching staff. James wiseman and it's no fault of his own just how to have the opportunity to do so because he hasn't played in a year. So it's really hard to believe that after not playing for a year in the most important time of the season. They're going to hand the reins over to James wiseman. Next season, completely different story, but the thing that Steve Kirk keeps talking about is he needs reps, he needs reps. He needs a summer league. Exactly is not played in a summary. He is not participated really in a training camp. So there are a lot of other steps that James needs to take before getting a greater opportunity. But Jonathan and Moses have both proven themselves over the past two and a half months to at least when the coaching staff is in their coaches meetings, talking about strategy, their names will be brought up as a serious options. And you know who else is pretty good. Kavanaugh Looney. I called Otto Porter not a sexy player. Kavan Looney is like the least sexy player. Plus sexy. You shot a few jump shots this year, he looks okay on him, doesn't really do much, but he moves the ball, he rebounds, he's in the right place, defensively. And if you watch their game against jokic the other day, he stonewalled jokic about as well as he can in the post and reminded everyone, even if it's 1618 minutes a game, he understands how the warriors play and whether it's jokic, ayton Gobert, whatever, they're gonna need them and that just doesn't leave minutes for wives. And back to commingle, by the way, a hypothetical I've gotten, I don't know, 40 times this season, and the tone of it has changed from October till now is, boy, can you imagine if the warriors had Franz Wagner? Because Wagner is clearly entered the league as way more NBA ready than kamina and would have fit the warriors pass and cut and read and react style. I'm already over it. But I would probably rather have come go right now if I were the worries. That's how excited I am and I love Franz Wagner. He's a no brainer first team all rookie. If I'm the warriors, I might lose sleep over wiseman instead of LaMelo Ball. I ain't losing any sleep over comming in Franz Wagner. Right. Well, you look at you look at kind of what the master plan of is with these young guys of minga and moody. You can throw James in there, throw Jordan Poole in there as like eventually there's gonna be this passing of the torch, right? The San Antonio spurs, which obviously took its own path. But, you know, that's the plan and when you look at the collection of players that they have and the different kinds of players that they have in Jordan and comming and Moses. And James will get out of that. It's a very complete core group kind of waiting in the wings and Jonathan has the extreme potential to be that that leader in that group. And I always think back Zach to leading up to the draft and then it immediately on drop my after the warriors selected kamina and it was so underdeveloped. He's going to be such a project. It's going to be two years at least until he's really able to offer anything to this team and here we are in March and we're talking about how he has a serious chance of cracking the playoff rotation. I mean, the way that he's developed and learned so quickly is so astounding and it's such a stark contrast to how the warriors initially were developing James wiseman, how much they learned what they, with the mistakes that they made last season and how they pivoted to now set these rookies up is it's pretty impressive how they've brought him along so quickly. You know what you know what you're entire statement just made me think is I don't think I'm ready. I don't think you're ready. I don't think God is ready. I don't think the world is ready for the level of bravado and arrogance that is going to come from Joe lacob if the warriors win the championship and Jonathan kamina and mozi's moody play a role in it because if you thought, if you thought light years ahead was bad, if they actually right now. If they pull this off where they have the present and the future, which he has boasted about, we want to be dispersed. That's exactly what we want to do to help with all of you who say we're wasting Steph Curry's prime. Blah, blah, blah. I want comming. That Franz Wagner. If they actually do it, I mean, this is a guy who said, we're light years I've ever won. Slept with the Larry O'Brien trophy and made it. I don't even know what could happen.

"I'm worried in the sense that any path through the west is perilous, I'm worried in the sense that Phoenix, Phoenix has a little bit of a team of destiny magic dust, feel to it this year. That worries me, but I just have a lot of faith in the talent of their three core players. And more than that, this is what I really wanted to dig into. In draymond's absence, I think they discovered moody and comming. Yes. All right, ahead of schedule. Yes. And so when I look at their and not only that, pool towards the end of draymond's absence found his footing and if I read you the numbers with Stephen Poole on the floor and Stephen pool and Klay Thompson on the floor, your laptop might burst into flame spontaneously. And so I look at this team and I'm like, okay, they're top 8 in the playoffs. Let's go through it. Because everything starts with 8 man rotation in the playoffs. Starting 5 is going to be Steph, clay, Wiggins, draymond Looney. Looney is the starting center. That's not gonna change, correct? No, no. That's 5. Their first three locks off the bench are pool. Otto Porter and I think Andre Iguodala, at least walks back into, I'm a lock to be in the rotation when I come back. When is Andre, where is Andrew? It's a great question. You know, he's been practicing. I saw him in practice. I actually saw him in practice the other day just bombing three pointers. I think he made like 12 consecutive threes in a row. And at this point this season, you know, now that now that stuff's out, maybe his timeline changes, the words have not put an official timeline on Andre, but now that stuff's out, maybe they kind of start saying, okay, Andre. Let's get it together because they always knew that Andre was a postseason player, right? They were. He'll tell you. He'll tell them if they reconsider that. Andre will let it be no one, what he's there for. Right. He is there for the playoffs for the postseason. They were going to bubble wrap him all regular season just to make sure he was available for them in the playoffs. And I think that's what we're seeing. As I said, now that Steph Curry going to probably be out until the start of the playoffs, does that change the fact that they might need a little bit for him from him as a floor general, just as a calming presence, yet to be seen, but he's a playoff player for them, but I do believe yes. Once he comes back, especially in the postseason, he will be high in their rotation. And Porter is not as sexy player. He regularly will go entire two week periods where he doesn't crack double digits in a game, but he's a 40% three point shooter. He's a great rebounder, and the warriors sneakily after a little bit of wobbling are now fourth and defensive rebounding, which to me was almost the number one big picture question about this team playing draymond at center so much which they were clearly lined up to do. Can they hold their own on the boards and they have importers a big reason for that? And he just understands how the warriors play and as we saw toward the end of last season and I was super bullish on the warriors coming into this season because of what those last 25 games of last season reminded us when you put guys who understand how Stefan draymond play on the floor with them, it's just a really hard team to defend against. It's a really hard team to play against and they've been awesome. So that's 8. We're up to 8. We haven't named moody or comming. More Gary Payton junior or nemea bay leads to ATA who I love, but won't be in the playoff rotation. I'm saying this. I think one of moody and kamina is the 9th guy. I would bet the coaches because coaches are so risk averse. They're such babies would prefer moody because he's just sort of a more reliable veteran savvy player than coming. I am in danger of falling head over heels for comming and I think I think to make a run the warriors are going to need both of them to play important postseason minutes. And I think both of them are ready. And I think they'll need the other guys too like Bailey to come on when they want to stretch the floor. If they ever face morant, I think Gary Payton junior is like, here you go. Do you have fun with that assignment? But I don't know, maybe I'm being naive. I think both moody and comming should and will play in the playoffs. It might naive? No, I don't think you're an ice fall go head over heels, Zach. It's okay. It is okay to go head over heels because my careful because my coming crush is getting a little out of control. Okay. Well, we'll make sure it's realistic, but we'll be there to catch you, you know, if you fall, but I think that's okay to lean into comming and Moses moody. And it's something that the team has been saying. Well, first off, you're exactly right in the fact that no draymond injury, no Jonathan comeing in Moses moody getting the opportunities that they have gotten over the past two and a half months. There is no way that being said, they have taken those opportunities and have forced the team to publicly proclaim that they will get meaningful minutes throughout this final stretch of the season and into the postseason because they're in my playoff rotation. I don't care if I got to go ten deep. I'm putting them in. They're going to want to try and find time for them because first started with Moses as you're saying, the constant description that I get about Moses moody is what he's 19, 20 years old, but his brain is he is the brain of a seasoned veteran. He just gets it everything moves a little slower for him. And he understands really where he fits into this team. Jonathan came when he is when he gets downhill. You do not want to be in his way. He does things on this team that no one else does because Zach, you think about you think about that dynastic run that the warriors had, right? They had incredible players, right? Just incredible players. No one on any of those teams were the athlete that Jonathan is. The warriors have not had just a freakish athletic player like him in recent history. And it just brings a whole other dimension to this team. And the thing about JK that's really encouraging to this team as well is how he's been able to learn. The example that Steve Kerr has given multiple times is there was one game a couple weeks ago. I can't remember who they were playing. But Klay Thompson hit 5 threes in a row in the first quarter when he was in that clay zone. Jonathan brings the ball up and he launches a three. And that's like a big no no, right? You give it to clay because Jonathan missed it. You don't do that. A couple of weeks later out of the all star break against Portland, Jonathan had an incredible game, and I asked him postgame about not shooting threes, and he said, we have two of the best three point shooters ever. We have 7 guys who can shoot threes. I don't need to shoot threes. And Steve Carell loved that that sound bite because it showed how Jonathan has completely understand to understand now where his game fits in and how he doesn't need to shoot threes because he brings something completely different to this team that makes them so much more dynamic. And harder to defend. So I think your crushes are very valid. I've been hurt before. I'm still recovering from Mario hezonja. I've been hurt too many times. But look, there's this fixation and warriors world and you've lived it and you've heard it on James wiseman. I got a scoured the G league film. How's James wiseman? What's his timetable? How many minutes is he gonna play this year? Is he gonna be in the rotation? Should he start? Forget James weisman. Like, to me, and I've said this since before the season started. I think James weisman is a next year question. You can all watch James wiseman beat the crap out of the G league ignite on some streaming service or something tonight or tomorrow whenever they play. And talk about how the warriors need his vertical athleticism. Just watch the warriors..

"Bring in our warriors expert reporter, Maven, the super talented, somewhat nudie ESPN, but not that new Kendra Andrews, how are you? What an intro? I'm good. I'm good. How are you? I'm doing better than the warriors presumptive starting lineup, which as you pointed out in your game story last night reacting to the Celtics blowout win in San Francisco. I almost said in Oakland, which would have probably punctured like a small dagger in your heart. Is played exactly one possession together the entire year and that was the jump ball draymond intentional foul on Klay Thompson's return. Steph Curry, strained ligament in his foot after Marcus smart, dove into him for a loose ball last night drawing the ire of Steve Kerr Kendra. You and I have both been talking to warriors people this morning. They just loads just reported the timetable that there's optimism you will be ready for the start of the playoffs. What are you hearing from inside warriors headquarters? Yeah, I mean, there's optimism that he'll be around for the playoffs. But as you said Zach, you know, when you're starting 5 has only played 7 seconds together, that not barely counts as playing any time. There's a concern level draymond green was saying on Wednesday night after that Celtics game, it feels like every time we get someone back, someone else goes down, consistency is so important to any team in particular, this team that is trying to integrate some younger players, some new players that haven't played together before this season. So there's some concern just about the timing of the season. Of course, getting stuff back by the playoffs is huge. It's needed, if not, who knows what's going to happen for their success, but not having him for the final 13 games of the season. Just as you get draymond back, it definitely hurts what they're trying to do. Here's where we are. 47 and 23, third in the west, 11th in offense, third in defense. I actually think all this panic Kendra about how their defense fell apart without draymond green was like completely overblown. In two months without draymond, they worked 9 or ten depending on what metric you prefer in defense. I actually think that's pretty good. Like you take the best defensive player off your team and you remain in the end of the top ten. I think that's pretty good. This is still an elite defensive team. However, Steph is now injured. You just hit on the continuity issues. They are third. Now they already trail Memphis by a game. They are at risk of losing depending on how the rest of the season goes and Steph may not play in any of these games. They have games left against Utah and Memphis and I don't think they have any against Dallas actually. No, no. But they are at risk of losing the tiebreak to every one of Memphis, Utah, and Dallas, Dallas, one they've already lost based on head to head matchups. Utah and Memphis because the NBA is stupid and clings to the tradition of divisions have the division winner tiebreak over the warriors who have done misfortune of being in the sun's division. It's on the table that they fall to 5th. It's not out of the realm of possibility. Yeah, and you look at the makeup of their schedules act and on this upcoming road trip that they have, you know, they have two back to back series Orlando Miami, then Washington Memphis, then later after they get back, they have a back to back Utah Sacramento and Klay Thompson still isn't playing in back to back series, draymond green is still under somewhat of a minute restriction. So if you don't have stuff out there and you don't have clay, which presumably will happen, at least three of those games, that's losing a lot of their offense, a lot of their scoring, then draymond, it seems to be that restriction is getting eliminated quickly, but you're still some type of restrictions there. It feels, yeah, standings wise, it doesn't feel great for the warriors right now. The value of being third, which right now would get you a first round matchup against Denver who's 42 and 28 and we'll see where they finish up, but they're two games back in the lost column before. If I let's just say for the sake of not breaking our brains, that Denver stays in 6th. The value of being third versus fourth and 5th really sort of is in the eye of the beholder. If Denver doesn't get Murray and Porter back and this is just who they are, I do think I'd rather play them even though I'm absolutely terrified of jokic in a 7 game series than Dallas or Utah. Maybe I think, but in addition, three gets me out of the suns, half of the bracket, falling to four or 5. I've got to play in this scenario. Anyway, Utah Dallas and then Phoenix, I think the three seed depending on what happens with Denver, I think that has real value and I think the warriors probably half of their brain doesn't really care because they're like, we're the warriors. Like clay and draymond have already come out and said, basically, draymond said, we're winning the championship. And I think there's probably some people within the warriors who are like, huh, that path that path from three seems better for us than the path from four or 5. Do you think they care? I do. I do think that there is some care there. Draymond is never going to admit that, right? You're not going to, he's not going to show his cards and say, well, we really are gunning for this because we want this match up where we feel this, or even we feel better about having home court advantage and XYZ versus that. I don't think it's the number one thing on their brain and they're putting all of their eggs into a certain standing basket. But there is going to be some care because as you said, they're smart people and their smart players, they know that some matchups are more favorable than others. I was talking about this with Brian windhorst and Mark skewers the other day. Also, when it comes to just like home court advantage versus not on current advantage, yes, the wears their veteran players have so much experience in the playoffs where that might not matter to them. But as I said before, they have a lot of players who have never played in the playoffs before and don't quite understand what the postseason beast is. And so for them, Jordan Poole, Jonathan, you know, want to Gary Payton the second, having hill court advantage probably is important to them just because they've never been in the postseason and they haven't had to experience what it's like to go into someone else's house and not have that advantage for the first two games and then if it goes on further. You forgot about Moses moody who on this podcast on this podcast is forever known as moody Moses. Not even this just this podcast in my head too. It's my initial inclination to always call a Modi move and then I have to oh wait, that's not your actual name. I'm sorry. Shout out perk that was at all an all timer and no, I will never let perk with that down even though if you put all of us on TV long enough, we are going to have a moody Moses moody Madrid moment. It's going to happen. So Kendra, for the last two months, I have been asked on podcasts, television shows, conversations, how worried are you about the warriors as they went, I think 15 and 15 over a 30 game stretch without draymond. How are you worried? How worried should we be? And I just consistently said, I don't care. I'm not worried, wake me up when draymond is back. Clay is just finding his footing after two and a half years away. And by the way, clay's games being nitpicked to death. Like, I just look like the same defensive player. He's kind of not the same four as he's only shooting X from these two shooting too many long twos. He's pressing. For two and a half years off and it's not like two and a half years he sat on a beach for two and a half years recovering from two of the most severe injuries of basketball player can suffer. Klay Thompson looks incredible. As the bucks how Klay Thompson looks after he put up 38 on them in a blowout win over Milwaukee, the only game Milwaukee has lost in like three weeks. The other day in San Francisco, I just, I'm just not worried..

It was it was crazy. Science anyways. failure is a big part of all of our lives. Obviously because all kenya. We all know that funding. We've realized in common with oliver listeners. All failures so we thought we'd hit you with the fundamentally human is what i think. We'll talk more about. How are you. this is so funny. The midst osam sam beautiful. I love toronto. i constantly. I know in a previous podcast talked about the perfect window of a banana. There's also a perfect temperature for me. And so like sometimes we go from winter to summer. And i'm like there was like three perfect as do. I actually just kind of exaggerated. What would you describe in celsius. Well what i realize. As i get older as i love really hot days when i was younger but they are often linked with being poolside. Or by be okay. Whatever i all. I mean is i love being hot but if i know i can get out of it. Yeah okay true. And so now. As i'm older i've always told myself but if i had be like near. Who'll build a growing up. You can't pull time gets okay. So you're no longer pool size just had experiences when i grow up around like swabbing somewhere like or even like i love going to the beach because might get so high and the water's too cold for me to go into. So called does my. I have a very narrow some of comfort for my body love the summer weather every now and then i'm like it's too hot but i'm like i feel bad 'cause one month ago i was like i love victory. You're just like going getting hot and just gonna do you happen to have a pool. They're like no okay. What's going to rely on the. Oh buddy we learned this week or am to bring in some positive light to the pandemic we sadly through. Remember those hard dark times. They're still going on actually for many of us. So the one good thing about cove. The cove in nineteen outbreak is accelerated. The science of org annoyed which are like sofer can cool. But there's in the past about organ awards far liver for brain for guts for lungs. But what's important to know. There's they're tiny tiny versions of cells. That are in our lungs and they are. they don't have immune systems or blood vessels attached to them. This is what an organ knew. it'd be. Yeah so it's like yeah. You can make tiny tiny lungs like for example. The study i read was fifteen thousand little little almost like alvie at the tiniest little parts of your lung and then they just blast it with covert nineteen and they cover and medication and try and watch one. And it's like that's how they're studying the medication over nineteen because it was so intense. They were like we need to go all in on organiz which are like really important science. But they're expensive and they did a bunch of they ramped up the science and it's just like okay so it's so interesting but like through the organized research is how they were able to literally put the sars virus onto these tiny little like thousands of lungs and see that the ace two receptor was the receptor that was going to actually bring in the virus. They before they couldn't go and then that's how we got these vaccines there like. They knew the receptor. They also realize that vero cells which is the old way of like in in petri dishes studying things with hydroxy chloroquine. It worked and so. That's part of the reason why we all hurt hydraulic promise. In the organ of the lungs which are like a more complex system that is like more different just picture like a little tiny avi they drastic chloroquine and they knew it wouldn't work because it is a more complex actual system and we wouldn't have had to go through that hydroxy cork when we had been using organize old. Yeah okay is organized like an thing. I should have did not expect. I thought okay wait i. I shouldn't assume people know what organizers are organ noise organ delayed. yeah sorry. I don't think i know what that is and then. I was kind of video on indiscriminate. Because i think i mess up made it. But it's like what it is is that they are able. It's like you know when you learn about salads. It's like they start with like adam and it got to element than molecules. And then you have to sell. Then you can issue. Yeah picture that instead of nsl an organism tissue. It's like it's like a bigger version like a tiny little segment of a long. They're able to build almost like picture like little brains livers little lung and their mark an empty stem cells in many ways. And they're more complicated and then they studied that feel. I should've known that and know. Maybe i'm having a brain fart. No it's new. That's why i brought up a really ally video about that for sure. But i i learned this. Would i've learned that in high school or more modern nature diarrhea. But i'm actually no you're right like it's probably like a three year old there's buzzy things and science yeah it's a buzzer thing. Okay cool. i'm going to look into it. And i'm like maybe i'm just having one of those moments mortgages. Forget everything in my life. And then tomorrow and i'm like oh yeah. Yeah yeah let her own organization. Explain why you so. We'll find out you beating. So okay i mine is not like a specifically science study. But you know my favorite place to find mind-blowing factual information is to talk and saw dog and i was like you know what i'm not going to try and describe it. I kind of wrote it down as my blood learned this week. She's a fascinating thing to think on fact ish. Because there's a caveat at the end we'll see so basically. They explained that. Anatomically modern humans came into existence around three hundred thousand years ago. Right so we maybe that number give or take some people say one hundred fifty thousand years ago is when we would say like homo sapiens. Humans were existing but okay. Well let's say three hundred thousand as that guess to clarify for everyone not caveman quote unquote. Their anatomically similar us. They had brains like us and they ultimately act like not necessarily act like us. But you know what i mean right home homo sapiens really around. Yeah yeah homo sapiens. One hundred that's when they all have one hundred thousand hundred fifty thousand but there's been all these young scale and so now in that timescale think about how the some of the first major recorded civilizations didn't come into recorded history until six thousand five hundred years ago and that's when writing was quote unquote invented. It's offered considered the beginning of recorded history. So this tick talker pointed out that all of recorded history potentially only represents two percent of human existence and the rest is unrecorded. So it's like in those hundreds of thousands of years of these creatures that were so similar to us they were like living with neanderthals at one point. Yeah there was like if who also were intelligent an had levels of speech and they're like giant sloth only ten thousand years. The giants lost like the things that eight avocados giants slots shitting ivankov does like that. Big spread avocado trees. Were like killed. The dion's lost off avocados and have just planted them since they don't have a natural thing that spreads their seed because the giant sloth. And it's like i didn't i read that. They could have been up to the size of elephants now. They were really cool like photos. And we'll note what's drying because it's not. It's recorded history but as far back recorded photography. They're just like the picture camera wasn't gonna really i anyway. This was ultimately saying you know. Ninety percent.

And so many other young black girls kendra ray whittaker had once walked the halls of wagner books herself and now delegates to work there every day.

But also it was noah's dream to walk these halls wagner is the hardest publishing house to get into in here. She is now she just has to work her way up. That's proving harder than she imagined.

"Been around a lot of girlfriends and wives of my dad. And she. And i just hit it off right away i knew what a a true gem she was like right from the get go. My boys love her. My husband loves her. Like she's she'll be part of our family forever what about all the memorabilia kendra because we got a little tease of it so people always ask me you have a lot of memorabilia not have like a sweatshirt that my guy or leave me a bike ride seen. I mean my voice have a lot so we have the hitchcock bell With my dad was the last recipient of the hitchcock vote. I'm not sure if you aren't hancock. Hickok belt hickok said that run Goes to athlete of the year We have that Has been s- lombardi trophy He left my boys the super bowl ring in the national championship for alabama Couple jerseys but that's about it mostly just like family photos and Just everyday stuff. That doesn't have to do a football so do do your are your sons play football. They played all through high school. They played young and then stop. My dad wasn't really ended playing. He was really worried about them. I think because he knew there was so much going on the he hid from us. Now knowing what was going on He really worried about them. So i think they also. They lived with him for a year when he moved to arizona driving. So we thought it would be really a great opportunity. He got a house right near their high school and he would drive them to five. Am practices and he would make them smoothies and do their laundry and like have their socks flow that he was a neat freak completely ocd. Everything was perfect. He would like we've be a hotel. He would make the bed before even put a foot of the bed like crazy clean light so he played mr mom to my boys And and because of that. So i remember saying to my husband if you times. We would negotiate taliban games or raider games. Maybe telling people always telling stories in. He started repeating historians quite a bit and i turned benefits from the west coast. And said he goes. That's a southern thing. I go now. It's not a southern thing but kinda depressed it off and that was around. Probably maybe two thousand ten on and then my boys were. Like papas becoming a really bad driver. Because they weren't gardening. And i was like. He's stopping at green lights. He's going at red lights. He is getting confused at stop signs and more like then i call cam and i'm like there's there's something going on and i did not the time but my dad was battling prostate cancer in hiding it. He didn't. he never wanted anybody to worry about him. That was one thing that coach madden told us is my dad. Wait till everybody left to get treated by the trainer he just. He didn't want his teammates to see him getting treated. He was destined. Want anybody to worry. Didn't want anybody to fuss sir. So it didn't surprise me that he hit that but then when the cit started get pretty bad is when the colon cancer hit and unfortunately or fortunately the cancer took him before. C. did but it was getting progressively worse. He wasn't sitting in an enclosed dark room and depressed. But the tonight is was so bad. You know he. He would grind his teeth from the headaches that were so severely broken in his mouth and Any any was just about to get his knees. Done was bone on bone. So like when you said. he's tough. He tougher man. Yeah and so Back to the boys. Yeah i think when they saw that narrow they're staying One is wants to be a coach and he's coaching high school now. And he is kind of looking into scouting and so They just graduated today. So we'll see what happens and then my other son graduated in the business school at business law degree. So they love the sport but They're both find that ended when it did right. Yeah i think my sons are the same way like they'd played my son. Gunnar had both had a couple of concussions in my son. Gunnar went on a played a few years in college and just said dad. It's too much rather go to school and be a kid. I'm like hey. I get it. It's a lot of work. It's not easy in on. And my son gamely played through high school. So it is it is it is hard and you have to have a dry for it and you when you do see people that have been injured or hurt from it is makes it tougher. Yeah yeah thank you. Yeah my one of my boys had at a pretty bad concussion. His still not the same It's gotten a lot better but you know and that's been five years and so yeah i think that really kinda seal the deal to makes it tough to. We still watch it. We watch your still big big for you In your family and your dad just created such a legacy at the raiders at alabama everywhere. He's been. I mean the there are things that your dad has done in his life that he probably you know like you said. He was a rebel from the standpoint of who he was on the field and the people in the locker room and how people loved him you know that he was just a shining light when he walked in. So thank you so much for sharing his story with us today. Because i always loved your father i mean i played a longtime play the same position. And it's just one of those guys that they ask you why So tough and get up. It's because of people like your dad's just did it before us and you wanna be like that. That's really cool. Thank you definitely kendra. Because so many people. I think even if they're not lawfully act. Here's what about your dad might not have ever watched the ball. But you know what you know who they will say is their neighbor player. Kennedy right so rain no idea.

Your dad had a little bit about the You know how the hall of fame is a museum and it takes those items in. I know that i donate a ton of my stuff already to the hall of fame because for me. It's like okay. I'm going to sit in my house. What's that gonna do here in. Actually i will call them up and say. Hey i'm gonna bring some friends over. And they will put it all out in a room for me and like all the magazines whatever press clippings and so you can go see it and visit fame. It's actually kinda pretty. You know kinda cool over there with my kids. It was a lotta fun cool. I love that. Yes so you know. I think that they're one of the best museums that In the country as far as how they take care of memorabilia and all the items. I know don shula donated all of his stuff to the to the hall of fame. It's pretty cool there. But i know that that maybe you have a little different feeling of the hall of fame there was probably a little bittersweet injure for you because of of kind of what happened. a little bit of on my shoulder. My dad taught me. If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all. So i will just say that he should have been in there for spell it and But he he's there and they can't take that away so My family's really happy that he is where he belongs. But when we went through the whole process and the they do treat you like royalty. We had such an incredible time. They make you feel like family It was such a cool experience. I'm just so mad that my dad didn't get to experience it. Yeah yeah a great job in the things that you do as your dad's legacy support our and biggest cheerleader wearing his legacy and talking about it and sharing it and obviously yes it would have been amazing and certainly i. I wish we. I mean many days if only we had great yet experienced it. Because he would've brought his own sharman styling and everything to that event in a great job carrying his legacy. And you do that with all of the things that you're involved in between the foundation and the animal rescue use it you do all these amazing things don house and over. There's in addition to your dad. Being accused of horror in alabama. You have a beautiful room at the house. Euro-zone that i know you're very proud of and console. Everybody then on your books are sitting in really cool. We have a program adopt a room in soviet dominated a room in his name and so many people came together to make it super crazy cool. It's kind of half. Alabama have raiders Lot of hounds too but there's pictures of him all over this room and called the. Ken stabler room. And so there's people staying in there. And i stay in touch with them and they said it's you know everyone's favourite rail like so many people that has said what a great place it is and it was such a labor of love that was so great to do and and we put all of mearns books on a bookshelf in there for the kids and it was super great. I would love to do one in every house. you know. it'd be so great. That would be great. I think it's it's amazing what you do for that. And how much support that. You give the wrong mcdonald's because it is hard for so many families out there especially after twenty twenty. I mean It's it's been difficult for so many people and i think that It's amazing that you talk about in. You got cheerful about your dad. But i wonder if he would've gotten tearful up there right because he was such a tough guy like for me emotionally. I cry altogether. I coach kids in high school when they graduate. And i'm like you know. There's this kid jack who really close to play a lot. But he was just he just loved game in connection and when he was leaving he said nice speech about me. And i'm like i'm emotional right. And that's kinda how goes. But i was wondering about your dad. Like know. yeah he he. He was so tough so private He i think i've only seen him cry once in my whole life. That was at my wedding right before he was about to walk down the aisle and he looked at me any to handle tyrannous like that. Are you crying now wiped and we walked down the aisle so yup. I don't think he would have been Emotional but i think he would have given the most epic speech like it would have been that it would be at. The house will come down on that. It would have been pretty cool. Who would have been his idol. Does he ever tell you like who is failing growing up. Who was his favorite athlete. Who did he love watching so he loved cash. There were so many he was such a huge baseball guy but he was a bigger Boxing fan really. Yeah he loved ali. Huge sugary yeah. He loved boxing. Glove nascar But we looked up to Was the most was his coaches bryant. really shaped him and molded him described him as like the grandfather. You never wanted to disappoint bum phillips. He this the same and then he described coach. Madden like your buddy your best friend. And and that's what they are. They were so close. Coach called me. Dad and i think he was crying harder than i was and They had such a special special relationship. It was really cool and the fact that coach madden let my dad calls on plays and.

I'm sure you guys are in the same shoes right. Like i couldn't check her in the locker room. But i can take my son's in right. I can do a lot of things with her. But i couldn't take a lot of places that i could take other people. So for you tell me about your earliest memory. Kendra of like that moment of sports that you had and why how you fell in love with it has my earliest memory so it was pretty young I was seven when he won the super bowl. I was a sophomore in high school. I was fifteen when he retired so pretty much. My whole life was either wake up on christmas and go to a game and listen to people yelled at. Your dad is throwing two main subsystems or One of the biggest memories. When i realized how much of an impact he had on people was when dorothy hamill came for the is conveyed in oakland and my dad took me on the front rows right after he won the super bowl some seven and they announced that he's there so every dad took their daughter to see dorothy hamill all of a sudden formed aligned to get autographs. And so i'm trying to bob my head back and forth to watch my idol and while these men were getting my dad's autograph And he he took so much time with every single person that came up to him and I just watched how he treated everybody the same. Whether you're the president or the janitor you were equal to him so That was fine my biggest memory and then after he passed just worldwide. The impact of people reaching out to my family was pretty mind blowing. I could imagine while he was a hall of famer. He was an incredible player. We all knew him as the snake. And i always wanted to find out like if you like. Did you my kids call me. Call kind of nicknames right for me so what did you. What was your nickname for your dad. It was his daddy who is But my i have twin boys and They remind dad's only grandchildren in. So he was papa snake. They were gran. Thanks so papa snake in the grand snakes awesome. Monette I i love that. So what about you. Did you play sports. growing up. exited play tennis Skiing and scuba dive and all that stuff. I'd never really had an interest in football. I didn't really understand it until i got older when i have. Boys is what. I really truly started to love this for a big college. Football fan I roll tide and so spoke. That's my team But yeah i've always been super athletic Really active my dad lived on the water so we are always on the boats and fishing in Snow ski and all that good stuff awesome. Awesome yeah i think it's great you know and then You know marnie You and marnie have these crazy things in common because you and marnie come from parents who were in the nfl. I was in there. And i have daughters. Who are in there who are kind of seen all the same things right. She's she's been through all that where we dragged around everywhere played for seven teams and she they went everywhere with us end in hotel rooms to -partment and you just go everywhere. So it's interesting. I wanna hear from marnie about that side in how you guys feel like That's very similar for you. Yeah well ball. Donnelly the the opportunity and i know casual agree like we were so fortunate to get to go to places and see things from a different level. Not just traveling around the way that people would race. Her dad been suddenly. I know people would be nice. My grandfather so they wanted to be nice to me and kendra. I'm trying to wear as close to alabama roll. It happens to be my kids old sweater.

The New Season of Shark Tank
"Well, mark with the economic downturn. It seems like shark, tank is more relevant than ever. Do you feel that way? Also I love the show. I appreciate that yeah, absolutely. I mean look there are so many small businesses going through hardship. There's so many people who've been laid off from their jobs and trying to determine should they start their own small business and the answer is yes and Shark tank a good job of educating people and getting people to understand what entrepreneurship is all about, and you know one of my favorite sayings is one thing that separates the American the United States. Of America, from every other country in the world is our sense of entrepreneurship entrepreneurial spirit and that's a quote from that Joe Biden gave me at one of his events and I. It's so true and it's even more important today. That's who we are as a country. We are a country of entrepreneurs and Shar taken spires people young old in the middle to go out and starts company start companies and I'm so proud to be part of it.

It was just so much at stake. We knew that we were studying the example for America to really get people excited about starting companies because honest guy honestly guys I think what we look back in twenty years at this pandemic twenty twenty won't find out that some kids from who knows where started amazing companies that have become world class companies, and if we can inspire those kids to go out and do that I, mean who wouldn't want to be part of that and seizing twelve is all about that.
Interview with Brooke Schultz
"Creativity is more than just having talent. It's about making a choice to utilize whatever talent you do have. That's a lot easier to say than do sometimes because self doubt and insecurity can service considerable obstacles. It didn't start that way because as kids we created without such distractions sometimes I think we spend a lifetime trying to unlearn all that stinking thinking. For Brooke Schultz her love of photography is more than just about making memorable portrait's families but helping other photographers to leverage their desire to be creative person. Using her workshop center podcast heartful with Brooke. Celts, she does just that. This was a conversation that very much looked forward to as it provided a special moment of positivity during some very dark times. This is e body and ex and welcome back to the candidate frame. The KENDRA frame thriller Nice to have you Thank you so much for having me a buyer your next. Are you know Marshall is often about more leading a creative lifer leading fruit for photographic line, which is all about just being creative in your your podcast in a lot of what I picked up from you focuses on that as well. So I thought this might be fun time not just the learn about your work but just to have. A conversation about creativity. Let's do that as much as I wanNA learn about you in your work I think. Having a conversation like this, like this is always always good to have someone. Yes. Thank you. In one of the things Dow was kind of interesting was this idea of giving yourself permission to be creative. And having been a man I you know I always taken it from the male perspective because it's the only choice that Hap- But. It's interesting in terms of something that I heard in terms of what of your episodes speaking from a woman's perspective especially, a woman who is. A wife, a mother, and in terms of sometimes the guilt that some women feel who are under the circumstances about making the choice to be creative from the cells in in terms of seeing it as something that selfish. And thought that was really interesting and it's not something that I really have had an opportunity to really discuss specifically of touched on it. I. Think at least a couple of times on your podcast I thought that would be really interesting way of starting in the conversation so. Talk to me about that. Wow well, I'm curious to know. have. You ever experienced that like a guilt feeling for being creative or is it just like I'm creative and I need to kind of work through the creative process but not so much the gill in terms of other aspects of your life most of my guilt is been not doing mea. Not so much that I felt like I was depriving. The. People in my life something as a result of making the choice to be creative. No every you sharing that because I think it's speaks to what women currently experience in a cultural sense that to be a good wife mother or just women in general, you are expected to do it all do it all perfectly and don't let anyone see you sweat dining and Especially to be a quote unquote mother you're expected and it's kind of like this seeing that runs in the background I think of just give yourself entirely to your children and any time that you spend away is somehow. Demerits or like a is taking away something very valuable from them, and so that's been something that I've had to really consciously. Reprogram in my own belief system to believe that the creative impulse is a human impulse and regardless of our roles whether it's a mother grandmother, you don't professional creative person or just someone who enjoys taking pictures or whenever you're creative outlet might be that those impulses are human that any humans in your care whether it's children or otherwise are going to be benefited by that creative impulse in my watching you be creative. Did. You ever feel this before you were a parent or is something that seems they've. Become especially pronounced after every given birth to kids. I think it's definitely more after having kids kids are so needy. ME. Need you all the time and especially as. In my family and many women as a mother, you're the primary caregiver and so you're the one that it falls upon to fill those kids needs all the time and my kids are really little. They're seven, five, four and three months so. You know they they need me a lot and so walking that line and that tension and dance between how much they need me and what I need. Myself is a really interesting one to walk and I think all of us walk that one way or in creativity because we have other obligations besides just you know sitting around getting inspired making creative work you know. So it's attention that everyone can relate to but I think it's especially prevalent in mother had.

"Joe Biden's choice of Camilla Harris as his running mate is being met with excitement and hope from many women in and around Sacramento. KP CASE Joe Michaels joins us Live in studio with more Oh Bill Bynes decision to add California's junior senator to the 2020 Democratic ticket brings a smile to the face of the only woman currently sitting on Sacramento City Council Councilwoman Anjali Gash be calling the choice, exciting seeing yourself reflected in leaders. Is just so empowering, not just for young people, but for all people. Women have never seen themselves in the Oval Office. In the White House. Never so to see a woman actually get to vice president of the United States of America would tell women and girls everywhere that it is possible and it is possible in our lifetime. Kendra Montgomery Block of the Sierra Health Foundation, is pleased to finally see an African American woman chosen as the running mate of a major party's presidential candidate as a black woman, how we are constantly looked upon as the backbone of the entire country, and in doing so So making sure that you have not only just a seat at the table, but a voice at the table means a lot in our democracy, and Camilla represents that voice, not only for us before the people Montgomery Clark believes Harris will also serve as a rule model for young African American girls. You always want to be able to look at folks and say, Hey, that's a path that I could take two And now that's incredibly connected to black women, Indian women and two women of color that we can take this path that we can build strong families, built strong education connections and then be able to take on top leadership role in this country. Councilwoman Ashby says Harris is well prepared for the opportunity. This isn't choosing a woman for the sake of choosing a woman. He was a candidate for the presidency herself. She's been the senator for California. She's been attorney general. She's been a D E A. There's no doubt that she's qualified to do this job. Ashby understands the possibility that Harris could be polarizing and doesn't out W naysayers were choosing the next president and vice president, United States of America. We get to look at them through a critical leads, but we need to look at them through balanced lenses, and that is what the people of this country are asking for. So many ways through protests through support of candidates. The things that you're hearing is a nation that just wants equity in its decision making. They want to see women and men have equal opportunity they want to see people of every race have equal opportunity. When you look at American history, it's been a long time in coming. From the women's suffrage movement that ultimately gave women the right to vote 100 years ago this month of the civil rights movement aimed at ending racial discrimination to 2020 when an African American woman now stands as the running mate of a major party's presidential candidate,
"kendra" Discussed on Daily Sales Tips
"You're listening to the daily sales tips podcast. I'm your host Scott Ingram. Today's tip comes from Kendra. Marlow Kendra came from a non sales background and has found a deep love in helping companies and employees through patient. She loves developing relationships working on her model, a scuba diving, and helping her neighbors. Here she is. We've all been there where we're putting off something. We don't WANNA do and for sales people that can be cold calling. We might come up with literally anything else that. We have to get done instead of sitting down to make these calls might tip to make this easier is to take ten minutes before your call time and put on your favorite music dance. Sing out loud hum sitting dancing your seat, whatever you need to do. But Jam out to your favorite tunes for ten minutes. This is going to boost your mood get you excited, and it's going to alleviate that initial anxiety that you have about picking up the phone to make these calls. These are just prospects that you're reaching out to their regular old people. You're trying to solve problems for them and help them with solutions what better way to get yourself into the mental space to do that than by listening to your favorite tunes. Up, these calls and that's okay. Take a second put on your favorite song again, recenter yourself and get back after it..
"kendra" Discussed on Four Letter Word
"They're not saying it with conviction but I I actually really enjoyed the way that Kendra. He had delivered her lines because there's there is this almost like bratty boredom to of that was really hot. Yeah. And I what I liked about their. Exchanges that you know I think in sometimes in in other like. That I watch you know Y-. One person will ask a question and to Ms Versatile just not answer and then bill just like let it go and then just like. Not Not like stay in the scene and like kind of follow up with another question and so I really like the Kendra such as use your words like was like stating character the whole time. Yeah And so and so yeah, I was I was also more so just like fascinated. By her. By her embodiment of the role and just how it seemed like quite natural to her but it wasn't. It wasn't over the top and it was very believed. Yeah for Mary INCR-. Like a plus plus. Plus performances from both actors and from opening scene. Lubinov. Big Old Dick. Shoot. When she says so I, guess for those of you who have not seen this club, it's about twenty minutes long opens with Kendra. The Dom in this incredible read, the tax will fit Big Ole. Big Old. Dick in the one call to holster. That's not the word. It's like, yeah like like a like a matching strap on holster like matching with the laundry at. Yeah. The Latex Laundry S. So. It up and then she starts talking to our little sub who is naked and wearing some. What you later learn to be very useful. Like black leather, there's cuffs on both the recent ankles I feel like this is maybe not after like another another scene because there's a little bit of a reference to like earlier one point With the cuffs and the cuffs in general, they're not using the scene, but they easily could be like you could be attached to all sorts yet off. And he's wearing like the waist piece which has those snoops which I haven't seen us yet but I was like..
Nearly 1700 coronavirus cases in Arizona, 87 deaths reported
"Testing is up in Arizona, but are the number of new cases as well? Where's Taylor? Kendra joins us live with the latest numbers. Yeah. Bob. More than 13,000 tests were processed overnight, which is nearly double the number of tests from the day before, but the number of new cases is still relatively low, with 1698 new cases reported. However, our daily death count's still remains relatively high, with an 87 new deaths reported this morning. And it appears that after yesterday's slight uptick in Corona virus related hospitalizations, ventilator use and I C u bed use those numbers all went down today again just under 1700 new Corona virus cases. An 87 new deaths reported live in the new
"Just. Okay at one two three boom. Nice I'm still got it. This is why you go. US to some shows when when when wedding We have to literally music and visuals when something? Technical doesn't work so. Lights Lights One. Oh, yeah, absolutely I mean that's we should. Actually we could talk about that in a second. Yes it's it's a funny thing. I was thinking about your guys career just in general, and you know from when you started performing up until now just so much of the the not not the music, but the actual production of the show has changed. You know the level of the festivals the technical level the just how much money is going into the whole thing. It's Kinda Wild I. Wonder if that was was that an adjustment period for you guys, or was it just sort of gradually? You ramped up your show at a match it. Exactly that was a gradual thing, right? I remember even apart from bad back when we started. Obviously, we didn't even have a manager for years. Right, Bussey. It was like everything Wednesday buster another than we played shows even think of visuals than we created also visual loop for like remember. What was it like? Twenty five thirty minute loop? Yeah. Yeah Yeah, and it just runs in the background, right? Slightly at the beginning what manager? What's what's visual loop? It was not a DJ showed the DJ when we started was placed somewhere in the corner right, and then like some of the big room. KLOPP's eventually with the DJ a little more visual 'cause it start into. Hey, people are looking for that special guy, or they're coming for to guy and then. On on. I remember that when some shows in Holland I think were the first ones where we saw an anti club. All facing the DJ before. Dancing everywhere all over the place. and. It was so interesting. That was new doing those the early two thousands that we had total new kind of conduct dance culture. It was like people were into collapsed there were you the bar and dancing, and now it's like when when we play a show. Every single face in our in our direction, so thinking about it, yeah, it's actually a total different way of going out and partying and enjoy the night. Yeah, it's really interesting. I started DJ in the late nineties, and so I was right on the tail end. You know when I started when I started going to events and all that it was very much the old days that you're talking about where it was dark you. You couldn't really see anything I didn't know where the DJ was, and then kind of right at right at the end of the nineties when I first started getting my first real show as when that switch happened, and it was really weird. I wasn't expecting it for you guys. Was that something you? You know in the early days where you comfortable with that. Did you feel like performers? You want to be on stage. were. Just mentioning the one word, a DJ turned more into a performer these days. It's more occur forms as some people come more for the event performance than eventually for Dha Music which still? Meal, wrapping it up in what what I say now still Farrah's The music is always the center and should be key over tension, and that will always be what's most important for us, but of course these that you cannot you cannot just you know. Look on your players at a not interact at all with the crowd. You can't do this these days. Maybe, I can speak for the two of us we. We grew into that where we're never the guys that search for every Kendra. Oh, we gotta jump in. but yeah we. We grew into the situation with comfy with it now it's it's fun. And when when the crowd is so much energy to to cheer back into It's awesome that. Really emotional at driving and so it wasn't it was we. We grew insulin and wait. We really enjoyed. Now may be boring to still do just the cool Dj Noah you right so. It's nice to see when they all face. You also especially back then because. The production was as Baker, was still about the music, but there was still facing. You just felt like they really care about the music they really. WanNa hear new music and expect you to surprise them and it was. Good to see all this attention than it made us also better DJ septic.
Supreme Court Says States Cannot Discriminate Against Religious Schools
"The past two weeks of Supreme Court rulings have not been encouraging after a disastrous ruling last week. And Bostock, arbitrarily expanded of rights protections to include sexual orientation and gender identity this week, according June medical all but handcuffed meaningful state efforts to restrict abortion finally yesterday, some good news, the Supreme Court by a five four vote held its ground on discrimination against religious education in espionage versus Department of Revenue The court ruled that a state tax credit which discriminates against religious schools in the families whose children attend or hope to attend them violates the First Amendment Free Exercise Clause. This case dates back to two thousand fifteen when the state of Montana created a dollar for dollar tax. Tax Credit for individuals who donate to organizations that provide scholarships to private school students after creating the program, the Montana Department of revenue ruled that such a tax credit. If used to scholarship, students for religious private schools would violate the state's version of the Blaine Amendment, which prohibits state funding of religious education well. Kendra Espinosa, a single mom, who works extra jobs, so her kids can attend a Christian school challenge the Department of Revenue's ruling in court in late, two, thousand, eighteen, the Montana Supreme Court acknowledged that the department's ruling probably ran afoul of the US constitutions free exercise clause, however instead of overturning the ruling. It just invalidated the entire program well. Thankfully, that didn't work in. In his opinion. Chief Justice John Roberts said that went. Otherwise eligible recipients are disqualified from public benefit solely because of their religious character. We must apply strict scrutiny that statements a reference to the Trinity Lutheran Decision, which was a case successfully argued by the alliance defending freedom back in two thousand seventeen strict scrutiny means that the action can only be justified by a compelling governmental interest. Montana lacked a compelling governmental interest. Instead the state argued that the law serve Montana's interest in separating church and state more fiercely than the federal constitution while Montana's interest replied Justice Roberts is actually limited by the Constitution, specifically the free exercise clause in other words, the establishment clause and the free exercise. Exercise clause cannot be pitted against each other. The separation of church and state can't be done by discriminating against the church. And religion is not some secondary part of the First Amendment even more. Roberts continued Montana's attempt to sweep the free exercise problem and had under the rug by just invalidating the whole program doesn't change what he called Montana's error, a federal law after all because of the Trinity. Lutheran decision the Montana Court already knew the department's ruling was unconstitutional, but instead of applying the decision as it should have hit, just invalidated the whole program to make absolutely sure that religious schools received no aid ban action. Itself violated the free exercise clause according to Roberts a state. Need not subsidize private education, but once a state decides to do so. It cannot disqualify some private schools solely because they are religious. Liberty opinion is a resounding repudiation of dozens of Blaine amendments and other states as well originally targeted to limit Catholic education. These amendments provide legal cover for treating religious institutions and the people who depend on them. Ask second-class Citizens Roberts made it as clear as possible that day, and we are not Roberts also rejected a suggestion by Justice Briar, which he called a quote, flexible context Pacific approach that may well vary from case to case religious. And citizens he said should not be at the mercy of courts waxing philosophical about the purposes of the religion clauses, and then applying them on some ad hoc basis, not dimension. It's hard to imagine how briars flexible content specific approach could be applied to any other right such as abortion, and perhaps the best part of this ruling. It offers a roadmap for Christians who hope to help people like Kendra Espinosa Afford Christian education. The Montana program can serve as A. A model for other states could even open the door for other solutions such as vouchers. Educational Innovation has long been among the best gift. Christians have to give to the wider world. This is an open door for us to become even more creative today. That's why this decision is such good news after the earthquakes from the court in the past couple of weeks, it's certainly nice to have some solid ground on which to stand
The Voice Layer - Jan Knig, Jovo
Neural Architecture Search and Googles New AutoML Zero with Quoc Le
"Welcome to the PODCAST. Hi Everyone. It's great to have you on the show I've followed research for Your work for quite some time and I'm looking forward to digging into some of the new things that you're working on but before we do that I'd love to have you share a little bit about your background and how you got started working in machine learning okay so I was born in Vietnam. I did my Undergrad in Australia. And in my second year. My undergrad I started some project doing machine London with Alex. Mola a back in Australia and back. Then I was played with. Kodo methods Then I Did my PhD AT STANFORD. A on a lot of deep learning back in the day when deployed in whispers or very cool. And that's the route two thousand seven and around two thousand eleven I did a summer internship at Google and that was when Google Brin project was founded so when I was there that was a long and Jackie Naan Greco data was there and I. It was the sun so we started out small. That sounds cool. Yeah and then I did some of the Scaling Up Neuro networks with Google Britain folks and then You know at the end Up to two years did some work on machine translation with the media and Oreo VR. He's now did mine. Owner of Ilya is now at opening I and we develop sold end to end. Solution methods and Around two thousand sixteen. I started looking into more like You Know Auto. Mau Architecture search and more recently are looking to Malacca together with Otto may also look into Sent me supervised learning and it's awesome awesome now. You mentioned early on doing work with Alex. Mullah was he was this before he was at Carnegie Mellon was visiting in Australia. He was a professor in Australia. Yeah I I went to a university. In a small air. In the capital city Austrailia go Kendra. He was yeah camera and he was Professor Edward Research. So I thought I had. I have along Very interested in AI and machine learning and took me for that. I took a class data mining and so on and talk a little bit boring but the ability to actually learn. It's actually a super fascinating so I contacted him and he was moonlight co methods machine learning and we worked together for maybe a few years before he went to he went to America then. Cmu and Amazon. Okay okay so a lot of your. Recent work has been focused on this idea of You know automating machine learning and neural architecture surge to allow machines to find the best deep learning architectures in like. It's a little bit about how you arrived at working in that area. What some of the motivations were for getting started digging into that problem so I've been Along interested in this idea of self improvement machine should be self improving itself a machine learning and even and when I started doing co methods with Alex. I always ask him. You know how the Dakota bandwith and so on how some of the HYPOC Ramat does include methods decided and apparently they decided by using things like Cross validation on then where I work on. Koroma two narrow networks. My hope is to make the hype. Affirmative go away. But that's how is the opposite so if you look at the a Kabul Lucien neural networks at has a lot of hype privatised right like how many how many layers you want it to be and how many channels you wanted to be. And what are the some of the high assize apprentice since on a Coulda with all the training parameters? Yeah all learning. Dry and as researcher develop more and more techniques FAW EURONET. There's more decisions that you have to make. That feel like. This is like a problem that can be helped by a little bit of automation so So I I observe a lot of my colleagues who will when designing networks and I asked him about the principles of design. Your neural networks. And you started are having some really solid principles like Skip CONNECTION SO. The gradient can flow through the network concern. But as you tune the network Karen Hata do no longer have the principal is around. You know trial and error right you you try this a little bit and simply with better so you try that more so. I think that that is something that may be ready for automation so even during my Grad School. I already talked about trying this but I thought you know. Maybe we didn't have enough compute because training net already takes took me days so when I saw that new control. Units are are in thirty minutes. Something like that on on safer I thought. Oh maybe this is the right time to try this. So that's when I started doing this. Newer architecture search in two thousand sixteen. It's interesting that you know. Even with all of the compute resources of Google. You had to wait until the time was compressed. Enough in order to be able to tackle the problem. Yeah to get really good results. You want the networks will be really big and that will take a long time to train. Yeah and it's it's It's funny coming from me that we have so much resources that will go train in EURONET still taking a long time And so maybe talk about the the first steps in In that area. Did you jump right into neural architecture? Search or was that the you know a a an end stage or end result of this work where I I on some of the related ideas on and off since two thousand twelve like playing around with how to do. Better hyper profitable tuning and none of that. It's really published. Because I didn't have good results have pugh and so on so so I tried it on and off over the time you know every year I would set out some time to try this idea for a few months and you know and it didn't work very well because like a procurement song and then Two Thousand Sixteen. I met Barrett's off would as my colleague now at Google and he's very talented. So we say oh. Let's let's try at the idea of Jews in like a reinforcement learning to generate and network like a little layer in an network for for a ceasefire model. Seafoam motto. Is already at the time you could say that you know enough of you depends on how where you want to be but you from thirty minutes to a few hours and the seems like about the right amount of time to get this going and my prediction is that you have to train. Maybe either between from one thousand to ten thousand bottles and I did a backup our calculation and thought. Oh this might be the right time to do it but you know I have tried this some of these related ideas in much before
Fighting Youth and Teen Suicide with Kendra Fisher
"We are facing an increasing crisis of teen and youth suicide in America and it is especially affecting young girls. Today's episode is a difficult one Kendra Fisher former elite ice hockey player and mental health. Activist and advocate helps me dig into the roots of the problem and what we can do to turn it around years ago. When faced with the opportunity to realize her dream of goaltending for team Canada Kendra was diagnosed with severe anxiety disorder coupled with severe panic attacks depression and agoraphobia forcing her to leave the national program in order to seek help to learn how to live with what had become a crippling disease. She now dedicates her life to helping. Young people get help for their mental illnesses. We turn now to a nationwide tragedy suicide new report from the Centers for disease. Control SAYS IT IS GROWING. Rapidly has been on the rise for more than a decade but nation suicide rate is at its highest point since one thousand nine hundred twelve year old accomplice allegedly harassed. Szechuan included that. You should drink bleach and die. No one likes you and you should go kill yourself. Sedgwick jumped off a near her home. After writing friends nine year old McKenzie atoms last week from other says the fourth grader was the target of Constant Racial Thompson? Name calling I was diagnosed with mental illness and I had no idea where to go so it was actually out at a team. Canada camping in Calgary and leading up to it in the weeks before I'd been to the doctors I've been to the hospital emergency room. I had no idea what was wrong with me. I felt like I was having a heart attack. I felt like it was gonNA Faint. Couldn't breathe swallow and and everybody told me it was fine. I love hockey and I love everything. It's given me both my hockey career. Also it would have had a shelf life and now. I'm in this position where I've learned so much about myself and I've met so many incredible people because of the journey I've been on and hopefully I can be a part of something that might stop somebody else. I'm Kendra Fisher and I'm fighting for the lives of those living with mental illness. Sorry not sorry so I mean. We've got a tough topic today but really before we dive in a love for you to give my listeners. A bit of information about your background. And how did mental health especially in girls become one of your causes? My background is hockey. I mean everything about my background is hockey. I grew up like so many Canadians. Just really wanting to have that red and White Jersey. That had my name on the back and I wanted to play for team Canada. I wanted to go to the Olympics and everything in my life through. My teens really suggests that I was going to be successful in that. I was carded member of team. Canada's National Hockey Program and sometime after high school I just got to a place where symptomatically and not knowing what. It was without a diagnosis. I was off. I just I felt sick all the time I felt like I was making trips to the emergency room constantly. Feeling like I was having a heart attack feeling like I couldn't breathe and it got to a place where unfortunately the perfect storm kind of hit. When I was out at my tryouts for team Canada in ninety nine and I was out at the camp and I just couldn't hide it anymore. It couldn't hide the battle that I was having every single day I grew up in in the greatest. You know possible situation. I had a great family. I had great friends. I was in a small town and I had a dream and my dream was. I wanted to play for team Canada. I wanted to play in the Olympics. That was that was what I knew. That was everything I worked for and I was well on my weight that I went to the coaches and I tried to explain to them what was going on and quite honestly their response to me was what it helps to know. What already made the team? They knew they wanted to select me that year. And I was finally get that chance to live my dream and it's obviously been one of the hugest moments of my life but not for anything I WANNA remember. Kazan's there was no at that point. What I eventually learned was a severe panic. Disorder and AGORAPHOBIA. Ocd clinical depression had literally taken over my life. And I spent the next five years unable to leave my apartment. Valey participating in my diagnosis just kind of scraping by and doing the bare minimum to survive and after five years I realized that just didn't see the point anymore and at that point I knew I had to make a decision and somehow I found it in me to start fighting and I learned everything I could about mental illness and the system and how it works and what supports are available when I really kind of became at the risk of sounding unhealthy obsessed with my own recovery and I got to a place where. I live very comfortably with my diagnosis. It doesn't mean it's gone. I live with it every day but now I live with it as a professional speaker and travel the world helping others learn how to cope and manage. I also work as a firefighter. I managed to go back and play for team. Canada's inline hockey team and it's really just kind of become a journey that I'm so passionate about because I understand how hopeless it feels but more importantly I understand how hard it is to find hope and defined real help and support and understanding about mental illness. And I just want to be a part of that. Narrative does mental illness. Run in your family. Yes yes and no I mean. I've always done this whole. Why did it happen to me and I think we always look for the answers because if we could find the answers we can fix the problem? Certainly on my on my Dad's side of the family. There's some depression but it wasn't so prevalent that I ever knew about. It wasn't something that I was ever made aware of. It didn't show itself to me until I actually understood what I was dealing with. And you said that you're now living comfortably with your mental illness. What does that mean? I'm fully functioning. It doesn't affect my day to day life in a way. It did in the way. It did kind of earlier on in my diagnosis. I got to a place where I just have an incredible system of support set up around me and I have all of my tools and strategies in place and I'm very quick to identify when I'm not doing well and I've also given others the permission to hold me accountable when they see I'm not doing well and in doing so. It allows me to really react quickly and now. I mean I would challenge that on my worst days of anxiety. I'm at worst as a panic on my worst days of depression doesn't affect me any longer than it would affect somebody getting a bad cold or the you know the stomach flu. It's it's a couple of days of really having to focus on what's brought me back to that place and making sure that I am doing all of the things that I know. Keep me healthy and usually I can rectify it. Just by changing those behaviors. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. But I think it's so hard that when we're in the middle of it to do the things that we know will make us feel better right like I know that going out and being in my garden digging in the dirt or taking a hike or taking a yoga class. I know that these are the things that will make me feel better and yet it's so hard to break out of it. Do you have any advice for me? Yeah absolutely with love and affection. Not as an not an onerous way. But I think that we forget to practice the things that keep us healthy when we're doing well We get to this place where we let life kind of takeover and that you know that pace of just going and when we're good we don't feel the need to necessarily revert back to that self care in those things that we know keep us healthy feel like so many people only practice crisis response and I think that it's time that people learn education and prevention are really the way to manage things crisis response is really you know. You're too far already.
Corona Personas: Real Housewives Edition
"Have a segment that I have duh corona. Personas out of your head and it's GonNa get that is my new favorite Hashtag Corona Persona and a lot of these not only housewives. But you know our our nearest and dearest celebs of our rights of all elks has been taking the the interwebs and developing some real corona personas. Yeah it's like some of your friends are are like the alarmist they're like other people are like doing their memes and their jokes. We've got it all and the housewives have not disappointed in your reactions. I would also like to shout out a listener of ours and someone who is follow on twitter. Who's hilarious and she has been just like diving into see. Where all the house where Casey and I were sending little things back to enforce to each other what the house is doing. But this person has taken it. To a new level I wanted to shout at Kendra James. She's really funny so take a look at her stuff. So one corona persona that has emerged is Ms Ramona singer and she quote feels fortunate to be an isolation with EX HUSBAND. Mario Singer after he cheated six years ago. They are hunker down though they are at a beautiful Italian dinner. The two of them sharing a nice bottle of red. Just really hunkered down there. Are they having sex? Danielle for sure they have always had a very sexual relationship. Yeah so I think. In the time of pandemic they are moving to towards one another. And have you also noticed? Her Corona Persona is stretched like not only. Has she done something to her face? But her the way that she's shooting or her filter has is like a blurry stretch. And there's something going on with that. We all want a vertical stretch. Yeah it now corresponds. Yeah it's a strange like stretch or filter. But I will say. It seems that they are all in Boca. Raton my hometown. I'm playing cards. H You're parks shows a beautiful photo with gorgeous sons and it is liked by one. Kathy Kelly. She says day one of being Hashtag home has shed. School has shag. Mom has shut principal. Hashtag I love. My Son's teaching is not my ministry. God May grant all the MOMS DADS and caretakers patients in grace during this quarantine. Godsend a village. How Shaka Rona how? Iko But nineteen now another corona persona. That I appreciate is Cynthia Bailey. Because she has decided to use this Pacific Time to get the SUNGLASS industry back up now as time. I wonder if she'll be packing up hourglasses. We ordered a year ago. Yeah I was GONNA say as everybody knows we order those still waiting on that and the cargo bag that we ordered from her many years ago so I feel like this she literally is literally coronas on. I'm going to get those I'm at home. I'm going to get those sunglasses ago and I'm GonNa get those orders out. You know now. Knee leaks posted a gorgeous photo and we'll get into this more but of her and Lil Sis Porsche and she's just kind of updating us on where a friendship is at big SIS LIL SIS is back.

Unlock Your Hormonal Advantage by Harnessing the Power of Your Infradian Rhythm with Alisa Vitti
"I'M GONNA jump right in to hormonal advantage. You know a few weeks ago my girlfriend I were having a conversation and it was before she was about to get her period and she was basically in a state where I won't get into all the words but you can curse on this podcast. And so she was like the gist of it was like this does not feel like an advantage right now. This feels like a big weight and a lot of women have thought that before. Why us we go through all the stuff then the top of that the gender pay gap and this thing and that thing and it just feels like. There's a lot of huge burden. That's there on women but in your subtitle you say hormonal advantage. Tell us what's more. I just love that. You bring right to the beginning of this conversation. The cultural narrative and mythology that we're dealing with right. We have inherited a cultural narrative that says that our periods are hormones are a curse that they're problematic that their mysterious that they're unpredictable that they're problematic and that there's nothing to be done and that you're going to enter the mythology is going to be painful and they're going to have symptoms and there's just nothing you can do. Just bide your time until menopause right. That's that's pretty much you know in the nutshell so to speak the narrative that we have the problem with this is a. It's not based on real science. Be It it. Perpetuates a huge behavioral problem for women which has them basically when you believe that something is supposed to be broken when you see it as broken you then do what you take no action right so puts them in in this situation where they don't think that there's anything to do and then they do nothing which then keeps them having symptoms. It's a vicious cycle. So you know it feeds then. It goes right back and feeds this cultural narrative this mythology. That says it's going to be a burden. It's going to be a big problem and women just feel stock and they feel unhappy and the truth of it is. It's completely false. It doesn't to be this way And and I figured out a way for women to liberate themselves from the mythology from the cultural narrative and also from the actual real symptoms to which you're so excited to share about. I can't wait to get into it. Let's talk origin story. Yeah what got you interested in this topic. And what education were you brought up with? And when did things shift for you? Okay so I mean for me I definitely have had my own run in with a hormonal issue That opened my eyes to the limitations of conventional medicine for chronic. Gyn issue so there. I was you know At Johns Hopkins planning to become an Obgyn and had sort of the apex of symptoms. With what I now at what? I now know to be the polycystic Ovarian Syndrome that no one knew that I had so you know at that time for at least seven years. I went undiagnosed I grew up in Massachusetts. I had access to Harvard trained gynecologists than of course at Hopkins. I had access to Hopkins trained gynecology. I had the best of the best and I went undiagnosed for seven years when I finally was able to get a diagnosis. It was through helping my gynecologist by bringing her a report from a medical journal that I had pulled out of the library at school to that had identified all the symptoms that I was having and I said I have this Kendra is what could you share. What the symptoms were. All I had I was. I was fifty pounds heavier than I am. Now I saw had obesity. I was covered face chest and back and cystic acne. I did not meant straight from the age of twelve to twenty two. I had maybe five bleeds two of which were chemically induced with synthetic progesterone. Which if anybody has done that knows that it is delicious experience and so you know it was and I was anxious depressed. Insomnia cle was a mess. Couldn't really function in my day to day. Life with any sort of regularity predictability. I would never know today going to be a day when I had energy was. I going to be in a good mood It was kind of a really negative scary isolating experience And then all the physical symptoms certainly didn't make anyone feel good about themselves. So you know in one of my insomnia coll- nights at the library. I like any young woman in her. Twenty s we do on a Friday night or Saturday night I was like researching medical journals in obstetrics turtles to figure out what was wrong with me because no one had any answers. Everyone was just saying. I'll just go on the pill and that'll solve these problems and I said but you don't even know what the problem is. They said that's true but we should try this anyway and I just didn't feel like that was good medicine for me to to without a known cause take medication for no accurate reason. I believe in more precision kind of based medicine so I found this journal this obstetrics journal and there was a little tiny article about The Stein Leventhal disorder that described my symptoms to a t and all the bells rang inside of my head and I said Oh my gosh this is what I have so i. I waited in the parking lot of my gynecologist office the next morning. She was literally like walking in with her coffee. And just like what are you doing here and I said well you know what I'm doing here is that I would like us to do to specific tests that we have not yet done that. I think will lead us to the conclusion that I have this disorder and she was intrigued enough and gracious enough without having an appointment to do these tests and was able to confirm my diagnosis that. In fact I did have polycystic ovaries and politico very syndrome. And when I I? I was so excited drew like Oh my goodness after years of confusion and dead ends and no answers to have something on a name for it. It was very validating since identity that I'm just crazy right. I'm not something actually going into something going on and I said excellent and I said so now what you know which is sort of like the new Englander in me like now. What do we do? Let's take action and she said well. Unfortunately there isn't really much that we can do for you. This is incurable. And you know we can. You're going to continue to have problems. The obesity that you have today is going to get worse. It might turn into diabetes You will have problems with fertility you may not be able to have children You will have an increased risk of heart disease and cancer. And I'm twenty at this time getting this prognosis after the diagnosis and asking for what support. My Medical Support Team was going offer me and she said we really just don't have anything we can. Just medicate your symptoms along the way and hope for the best but there's nothing that we can do and it was in that moment which I you know. You don't plan for these things. I wasn't like looking to react to particular way I was. It was all happening real time. But in that moment this very specific loud voice or see you know. I don't know how exactly to describe. It was just like that's not your future. An internal wisdom. Good way to describe it and I just repeated that to her. I said that's not my future. So he goes. I was terrified was very terrifying moment to just have to be facing this and so I just repeated what this voice was saying she said well what are you gonNA do. I said I'm going to go take my very expensively trained mind and figure this out and she said well. I'll be here when you want the prescription for the pill and first of all you chase me down on the Paparazzi me. And then tell me. I'M NOT GONNA listen. It was great you were forging your own journey so what happened from there. So that's I proceeded to really get deeply more into the research around functional nutrition epigenetics chronobiology Chinese medicine and really started piecing together what the endocrine system needs to be brought back online. Because fundamentally what I discovered in my research was that most of these conditions these castaway. Gyn conditions like fibroids like Dimitrius like P. C. O. S. Where there's nothing really that we have from conventional medicine to help women like us. That's why I called him castaway because we're kind of like left to figure it out. Is that this. They're fundamentally caused by systematic disruption. And if you simply start to support the endocrine system the body resolves the symptoms and it just works so efficiently and safely across the board for these different conditions. And that's that's really the origin story of my transformation. It was amazing to watch my body. Just recover fifty pounds coming off without deprivation without intense workout my skin clearing up and my ovulation and my cycle coming back. It came back at twenty two and has not left yet.
