"Kurtz. The Washington Post fact Checker column generally does a good job, but really Mr Markham Republican Senator Tim Scott, Because the story tells about his family is true. His grandfather left elementary school to pick cotton. The Post could even give him a fraction of a Pinocchio on that instead ran this long piece. About land records and census records and how Scott's great great grandfather going back to more generations once owned 900 acres of land in South Carolina. Of course, the historian to say even Lando is that the time could be financially strapped, might have to work for other funds. With the same time this land purchase goes back to 1905. What does it have to do with senators? Grandfather was even born yet let alone Tim Scott himself now I don't know that it's just a coincidence that Tim Scott, rising Republican star was selected to deliver the GOP response to president by Address to a joint session of Congress.

Happy Monday there, Ray, How are you? I'm doing fine Brandy. Good morning to you. So let's dive right into something You've been watching very, very carefully. And that is and it's something we need to know about. How spill 1 10, But you're talking about how this you see it as a missed opportunity for Ohio. Well, why so? Yeah, so The Ohio budget is basically based on a two year protection, right? We have what's called bi annual budget, which means that we right now are debating our budget for the next two years. And after the last year, which is unprecedented in terms of the economic shut down the pandemic. Time is ripe for good change in Ohio took as we talked about Ohio took some prudent steps raising state spending. We have a strong rainy day fund. Our economy is bouncing back. We need to see some bolder action, and that means specifically Really addressing how we educate Children. We know. For example, lot of kids.
What Is Bidenomics?
"Three parts of Joe Biden's economic policy agenda with Danielle Kurtz Laban reporter on NPR politics team. Then now here's where I want to start. You said something interesting to me recently, which is for both of these candidates pandemic policy ease economic policy. Let's make that. The first thing we discuss what is Joe binds pandemic policy as it relates to his economic policy. Sure. So Joe Biden is very much focused. On containing the corona virus yes. He wants as badly as any of us do for there to be a vaccine for pharmaceutical companies to stay at work on that but he also is saying look until then make sure that we have the virus as reigned in as possible, and here's a line actually from his website that really struck me it says Biden believes we must spend whatever it takes without. Delay to meet public health needs and deal with the mounting economic consequences. I mean. He's really saying one can't happen before the other you can't have the economy bounced back without corona virus at least to some degree really hemmed in. So to do that, he's encouraging a lot of things like mask wearing that sort of thing more testing but one other thing he said is that the CDC centers. For Disease Control needs to come out with clear guidance for states and localities on. Okay. Here's what you should be opening and when based on how Corona virus looks in your area. So of Corona virus is really bad. Maybe you shouldn't have schools open right now indefinitely, not restaurants or concerts or whatever. But if things are looking better, maybe you can open schools but what he saying is this is not. Necessarily an all or nothing thing but we need clear guidance from scientists on exactly what to close down and one. So it's fair to describe this as a somewhat detailed approach as opposed to thinking of it in binary terms like everything locks down everything stays open. It's an attempt to find out. Okay. What are the details at matter and then let's apply those on a situation by situation basis, right? I mean the way he makes it sound as nuance, but also to some degree simple or at least clear like, yes, there might be gradations between states but we at least want to give states some sort of guidance on exactly what they could or should be doing in one. Let's go on to the second part of his economic policy agenda that we're talking about here, and this has to do with. Joe Biden's proposed spending programs which are a lot higher than say what Donald Trump is proposed. So why don't we get into that? What? What is Joe Biden proposing spending money on all right. So the umbrella that he has put all of these policies under he is calling build back better now I've heard better alliterative strokes of genius but fine we'll stick with that build back better and what's in that This isn't about marketing. This is about economics. So okay the first is manufacturing making sure that there are more manufacturing jobs and he's clear on this. He wants them to be unionized manufacturing jobs and also to make sure that there are supply chains here in the US to make sure people can get the goods they want, which is something that we have seen laid bare a bit by Cova. Number two is green infrastructure. So yes, he wants to build roads and bridges the way that we think of infrastructure pretty traditionally, but he also wants to make sure that lower pollution methods of transportation for example, are encouraged like light rail's in cities, electric car production, that sort of thing. Three racial equity he wants to close some of the really gaping economic gaps that we have between races and ethnicities in the country and I know you guys have reported on this on your show. The, very big for example, unemployment gaps between black Americans and white Americans. Also Hispanic and Asian Americans. There are some huge gaps there likewise the big wealth gaps and finally caregiving he wants to make sure that people are able to get quality and affordable care for their kids and also for their older relatives when they need it and that one's interesting. Tell us a little bit more about the approach to caregiving that Joe Biden is pursuing here sir, and this is really of course important right now because cove has shown us as we're all staying home as kids are not at school, that caregiving is important for people to be able to do their jobs and participate in the economy. In fact, we've seen people falling out of the workforce because they didn't have access to childcare and elderly care. Yes. Most definitely. So what Biden is proposing is pretty ambitious I mean what he wants to do is universal pre-k available to all kids. He wants there to be higher pay for childcare providers he wants them to be able to unionize to collectively bargain. And he wants to grow the number the supply of childcare establishments around the country to make sure people can get that child care aside from that in terms of spending and making it more affordable he wants to make sure there are refundable tax credits to low and middle class families to help them pay for childcare. So that's a lot of stuff and childcare I. Know You know it's a complicated thing to make sure everybody can get it to make sure there's enough that it's high quality that it's affordable. So it's a tough needle to thread, but this is his attempt at doing. Okay and let's get to the third part of the agenda, which is sort of the flip side of the spending, which is where are the tax revenues to pay for some of this spending to actually come from higher income people incorporations room. That's it. We're done. That's not okay. So it's not gonNA come from a middle income or lower income folkston what Biden is saying, right so what he wants to do is raise taxes for households with incomes above four, hundred, thousand dollars a year, limit their deductions, and also he wants to increase. The top corporate income tax rate from twenty one percent where it is now twenty eight percents. Now, president trump you'll remember lowered these taxes with the tax cuts and jobs act that big tax bill that Republicans passed in two thousand seventeen. So Joe Biden is saying look I, WanNa roll a lot of that back I want to change things back now. So in terms of those income tax changes yes that would overwhelmingly, of course effect the highest income people there is some question about what the corporate tax plan would do I. Mean how? Much that would be knocked on it all to people at the lower end of the income spectrum. It's possible that it would be to some degree but again, you compare it to those income tax changes in it's nowhere near what a change those would be essentially looking at the last four years in saying, I'm undoing some of this and putting place the agenda I prefer instead of the one that president trump has preferred, right? Yes. Now listen we're laying out all of these economic plans. Here's what Joe Biden wants to do would do in. His perfect world has theoretical I get everything I want world. But of course, he won't get everything. He wants he can't. Okay. But what's your priority in Biden's cases are going to be green jobs is going to be this tax plan is going to be childcare. What does he do? I decide to spend all of his power on right you've got to prioritize because you're not going to get everything you might not get anything you are true right? Yeah. But in speaking with you today tomorrow I am getting everything I want what a pleasure
Ruth Bader Ginsburg's army of clerks to stand guard at the Supreme Court
"To the United States Supreme Court. Her body is arriving now in a black hearse in front of the Supreme Court building here in Washington, D. C. It will be brought inside for a memorial service in a building where she took part in historic rulings over more than a quarter of a century. We want to tell you that her former law clerks and dark suits and dark masks have lined the marble steps in front of the court. Supreme Court police officers are about to carry the casket into the building. Her foiled fellow justices, of course, were there along with court colleagues and family and friends for what is the first of several services. To honor her life and her legacy. Ginsberg lived 87 years was born in the Depression and lived well into the 21st century and her influence on American history spread over decades. Well before her appointment to the Supreme Court. As a lawyer in the 19 seventies, she argued a string of cases before the court, pressing it to recognize the equality of the sexes. As a justice, she authored landmark rulings herself and we're going to bring that service live. NPR's Daniel Kurtz Leben is outside the court. Now as Supreme Court police officers have taken the casket to carry it inside. Daniel, What are you able to see in here? Well from a distance. I can see those. There's just started to carry the casket. And right now, now where I am I'm on the south side of the port, where people are lined up socially distance to to pay their respects to her later this morning, and it's it's really hard for me to convey to you how much she personally met so many people here. I want to play a piece of tape for you. I spoke to a woman named Shaft Collins. She flew here from Colorado. People came from far and wide to come to this today on she told me just how much theater Ginsberg meant to her. Here she is. I have struggled in my own life and her achievements. Let me know that I actually might be able to achieve something in life. I was a homeless veteran for years. And although I'm now late to school, I hope to go to law school one day, so I'm now pursuing my bachelor's, and that's all from having been on the streets after serving in the Army. Yeah, There are so many people who I talked to who who start crying when they talked about received organs, especially women. She she meant so much to a lot of these people.
The Secret History of the Korean Bat Flip
"Icl Insane power right now. I don't know how I feel about this. Meantime, is a senior writer for ESPN and NFL analyst on NFL live and yeah, the former host of this podcast. I am the captain. Now you will feel how I want you to feel I think is how this works. People can't see this, but Kabul was doing the thing where he points his fingers at his eyes and then he's pointing them at my eyes and it's very upsetting. So. How did the story which I love so much actually come about what was I think the spring early summer of twenty sixteen, which is important because we are coming off of the two thousand, fifteen mlb playoffs where as I'm sure you will remember Joey Batista flipped his bat which feels almost like I'm understanding what he did after an home run in the Al. Ds. I was between the Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers, and there were much hand wringing and commentary and debate as a result of that critics called the BAP slip disrespectful not only to the opposing pitcher button. The game in general were a player. I wouldn't do that. The fact of the matter is what he did did not offend you just don't sit there and flip your bad especially in the seventh inning but throughout this time, and before that, there were these videos of backflips coming from Korea right where. Korean baseball players were flipping their bats as defiantly as Batista and with great joy and style and panache, and these videos had gone viral in social media. Turk. Looking, looking into it a little bit. There's a there was an account on twitter website called Mike Abo run by a Korean American guy named Dan Kurtz, and so he was sending them out and then they go viral. Asked him kind of how he got into it? He used to live in Korea he was huge. Fan Korean based organization. But then I asked him. Okay. So why why are they? So Common Korea is this normal there why our guys not getting drilled in the head and he didn't know and I was super intrigued by that. So I got in touch with another Korean baseball expert, a commentator for the Daniel Kim who is based in Korea, and he had so many great stories about backflips and what they meant there in how they were so common but he also didn't know why or where it started and he told me you should just come here and figure it out. So that's what I did. So, you actually go to Korea and this I. Remember I, remember it sounding like one of the great expense report boondoggles ever. But you actually go to Korea with Mickey and your story begins in in Bussan right and so what do you actually find when you travel across the ocean and get there So we went to Poussin, which is a extremely large seaside city on the southern tip of South Korea. So they have a very popular team, the low tech giants, and the first thing we do is we go to a game at stadium and. It was revelatory.
Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’

NPR's Daniel Kurtz, Leben reports. Democratic rival Joe Biden blasted Trump during an address on Friday in a speech planned as a response to the August jobs report.

"They've had at a time to heal to get back where they have to be and I. think There's A A very healthy club right now, and they get that line that one line intact for the front end they've got a number players of the front end that are extremely explosive been Minnesota has got to be ready, but it's going to go down once again always usually does at the end of the playoff run between goaltending and Spencer team but especially, this first round where it's going to be the best three out of five and that's very short Cirri. So if you lose that first game, you're in a whole right away and how good are your specialty team's GonNa be. Had this. This is this is unique in the fact that they've been off for four and a half months, which is basically an entire offseason. They have one one exhibition game, and then they start the playoffs and it's best to five. Now with with Colorado at one thirty today on the fan that's the exhibition. Cool. Can't wait to hear you guys I'm tripping on the avalanche because it doesn't count went went when Bob Mentions early in seasons and and this is a continuation of season pre pandemic purge but it is playoff like Bob Adroitly said that the teams the. The the the high talent, the most talented players may jump up on you when you're coming up way up like these teams are so that said, it's dumbest question you're going to get all day but like for both teams brock, Besser what would would Burnsville back Sir be like considered one of the not the best overall players on both teams. Got Pettersen to don't forget him. Yummy it's. When you look at Vancouver Hoover I mean there. There's no question that They've got some pretty good Taylor and also in, but that's a fairly young club tube and the other guys we have is Quentin. Hughes. The guy that's going for the calder trophy against Macara Colorado. So He's another guy they've got pretty strong contingent on that. West. Coast Vancouver and. They're not quite an experience when you have a guy like pederson who could make some some terrific place and you've got TJ Miller that also can. Can make some. Bonafide offensive ability that hockey club. In all goes down I said before down to the guy between the said how he's going to play Bob what last one with a seriously calling hockey off TV for the radio? What do what do you anticipate like some of the big challenges will be? Well. Denali screen just went blank. That would that would be that would be the biggest jail. That's the other than that though you know like, say, for example, you've got a two on one. Oh And there a trailer you may not see the trailer on TV thing you also depending on where the goal comes from you may not see the number. But we do have backup in the fact that you've got the the the Fox sports north feed to our right, and that'll be a seven second delay. So you that'll help your long a little bit I think is just trying to get your time down now with with with Kevin. Foulness running the wild radio network. It's weird that I hear him in the background right now are Bob. You're sure all the chords for your mic and like TV and they all work, right? I mean you've you've liked jiggled them and make sure they're completely plugged in right I have no idea be well, it's weird because I hear fondness in the background going six Besser besser six besser. Four band four band four, Band twenty-one Eric's he's memorizing conducts numbers, Bob. It's weird already has the Colorado numbers down. So this is good.

"Twitter am I going to see? Tom Ray shirtless hope not. A few years ago we've been. Okay. The old school and we never had a set up like this. Well, the old school some didn't have. A bomb, a Tom Good Morning I'm ask Bob a couple of questions because. Has All the leaving anyway Abba Europe, Bob, I mean you're you are play by play immortality at least in my eyes. So from Michigan State in the seventies through eleven years at Nelson Red Sox whatever to where you are now have you I'm GonNA assume you've called Games off TV but I'M GONNA ask like how many this'll be the first of any sport area of any sport various the first by heavens well, congratulations on that my first broadcast I did do one of those old style re-creations as a student, but I was the guy at old hall in Michigan State Doing. So called play by play while the Western Union teletype. Typed it back to Colorado. But they had to recreate it at the other end that wasn't my problem. Bob So I mean if it's like recreating baseball back in the Michigan state days one of those deals when when there was a hit yet like hit the microphone and go, Oh, what a shot down the left field line I never did that you know what's going to happen. If we lose the picture something, we'll make up something like Tom There's a dog on the ice, and then we'll follow the dog for forty five minutes. While we kill time he had the thing is also PA when I. Go to the the venue in a covered wagon. R backing goes. He that's weird. You said that because when I was seen with Bob last night assuming any tax. When I was corresponding with Bob last night Tom I don't they call that dialoguing now it actually was the the rotary phone with long cord now late on the couch. But what But what he said Tom off what you said about the covered wagon, he said when you started broadcasting end or playing hockey, it was like Barney rubble in the flintstones for the cars had to like run along real fast because they didn't have engine man. It's a it's a little bit different now pa this. Certainly, this is going to be A. Challenge for us, we've never done a game off of monitoring before but. Done Yeah we'll see what happens. Yeah. Innocent such a Fast Game I. Just I'm looking at my pub and I'm watching on. TV So fast. Kevin Fallen down pretty good job said this whole thing up for us. So but work there is one other thing since the game is being played at the worries it Rogers place at Edmonton we are closer to the ice here at the Xl Energy Center and Edmonton. would be if we were in the press box in Edmond Ok hardcore question speaking of ice because I was thinking about this last night when I was watching what was the avalanche and somebody else at Rogers In an exhibition and and the ice I mean like when there are multiple games, even if it's Rogers place xl. Energy, center, wherever when you're having multiple games on the same surface de for those who play the last game did do you think it will impact the ice? Condition. I think a little bit but you know the technology technology is so good now and the other thing is. Here with no fans in the stands, your doors aren't opening quite as much as they used to obviously with not eighteen thousand people opening shutting that door. So you're not getting that heap coming in from the outside. So I think the I should be pretty good. Especially, they can jack up the certainly the temperature dropped temperature whatever they have to get to to make it work but I think it's it's the same for both teams. So it should be it'll be interesting Bob. Bob Kurtz Tom Read Colleen avs Wild Exhibition on the fan today one thirty cornfields, and they'll be calling it from xl energy center of the. The setup you mentioned Kevin Fall Mrs set up I'M GONNA. Guess that you have multiple TV's with multiple angles. Well we've got a couple in here. We got the one main game camera, which is probably I'm again, we haven't done this before. So I'm guessing that's what I will work off of almost all of the time, and then we've got one that they. Shows all twelve people on the ice how will you be able to read the numbers that I have no idea. Right. Now, we've got tennis on is very easy. There's only two players one on one side of the court and one on the other and they were different colors which really helps when at. least they're wearing shirts. Now when it doubt when it comes to you mentioning Bob Kurtz longtime play by play, Voice Minnesota Wild Kevin Foulness the the man who who leads an executes the vast and ever expanding wild radio network. When you say Kevin as you guys set up, are you sure that part of Said setup does not involve your microphone breaking Bob so Kevin can jump in there and say something's gone wrong with Bob's Mike. It's Parisi over to Fiala shot, and so you know what? I'm saying you got to be ready if Kevin's ready. Kevin jump, right in there and the second. Do I. Then see how it goes command. Kazakova. Burn right now Evans read next Bobbin of. Medical emergency he could just jump right in there. Yeah. It's weird man I was texting Kevin earlier and I'm like, why are you memorizing all these avalanche numbers on that I was just like getting up to date on their roster post purge now with the Bob and Tom Kevin Fiala beginning exhibition today. But specifically when we listen to you guys Sunday night around nine thirty Cayenne about Kevin Fiala stealing the. Show in this bubble because he gave out there deal the show he's that good, right? Well, he is. There's no question you look at what is asked year number one in the team here, which was his career best but he really picked it up the second half of the season. I mean he was really hot to and he had had fourteen games last year, we have multiple points in a game and. You, look at his best with thirty one points. But he's a guy that loves this move the PUCK quick he can shoot and. He led the team last year also in shafts with one hundred and seventy five shots. But he was driven he picked up fourteen point in his last eight game seven being goals. You got stay. Walk Starts Today in the exhibition, right? That's what they tell us you. Yeah. That's what we assume. Now Sunday night against the conduct side Betty starts wouldn't you? I would think it depends on what happened today I mean you can't go beyond today in case there's an injury or something happens that you're not aware of you know hopefully, the team could say healthy that's going to be the big pirates. Of this whole thing, if you go back and you look at Colorado the last game of the year they had they had four five players. Key players are out of the line of because of injury. All right. So this time off the ice, which one, hundred, forty plus days has given Colorado a chance to get much healthier, and this is a team that is going to be very tough to beat down the stress if they stay healthy. And you just never I don't even know how the handicap something like this I mean the old rule of thumb is, would you come into the start of the season? Obviously, this is playoff for one thing. So goaltending obviously is huge I, mean every every big save you can come up with but usually talent wins out over structure and system early whether that will happen. Now I have in the middle of the summer I have no idea. The thing also is when you look at, if you look at both of these teams I, mean Minnesota has more experience when it comes to play off competition that being said, you're playing against club today that being Colorado that has got some very young talented players led by Nathan MacKinnon was lights out above everybody else and his hockey team. This year I mean point why he's just a terrific player but he was also he missed that last game because of injury. So.

Biden uses progressive message to roll out his moderate economic plan
"Learned learned that that 1.3 1.3 million million people people newly newly filed filed for for unemployment unemployment in in the the U. U. S. S. Last Last week. It adds to the bleak backdrop for the presidential election as the candidates pitch their plans to revive a pandemic ravaged economy. Today, Joe Biden went to Pennsylvania to announce his economic recovery plan. And here to unpack it is NPR's Daniel Kurtz livin. Hey, Daniel. Ailsa. Hey. So, what is Biden proposing here? So it's a plan, he said, to rebuild after Cove it after this recession we're having. He has said already, for example, that he wants to better aid local governments and extend the crisis. Unemployment payments people have now But his speech today also laid out more. He took an optimistic tone. Amid all this bleakness, saying, yes, their crises happening right now multiple, but that those can also be opportunities. But each of these also presents tremendous opportunity for the nation on opportunity to prepare now for the future threats. Ueno are just around the corner on opportunity. To address fundamental inequities of our nation. Growing gap between the very wealthy and everyone else. So he has four big pillars to this plan he laid out today. One is boosting manufacturing One is spending on infrastructure. One is boosting people's ability to get childcare and provide care to their relatives and fourth racial economic equities, closing some very big gaps between different racial and ethnic groups in our country, so Yes, he's saying, Here's how I want to get out of this crisis. But also he was making the pitch that we can come out of this with better fundamentals Underlying the economy. I mean, wow, when you lay out the four pillars like that, they're pretty ambitious ideas. What struck you in all of this? Yes, it is ambitious. That is definitely a big thing. I mean, largely what he put out there is just an outline with more concrete plans to come. But one is that this is a firmly Democratic capital D plan with a focus on unionization and racial equity and paid leave. Very popular ideas among Democrats. So while some of the ideas are ambitious in size or scope, the what of these plans like buying American goods and boosting unions, those are broadly agreeable among Democrats and maybe some independence, too. One other thing is, we should also say that he did release more detailed plans in particular on one of those pillars manufacturing. He wanted to make sure, for example, that the government buys American goods when it spends taxpayer money and That is one of those big in size and scope, things. He's proposing for $100 billion in procure procurement from US manufacturers. That's a lot. Yeah, it is a lot. I mean, on manufacturing. We do see politicians talk a lot about manufacturing. Like President Obama did it. President Trump definitely does it. Tell me why does manufacturing in particular? Why does it so often gets so much political attention. That's there's so much here. I mean, you can read both economic and political motives into it Economic because yes, automation has eaten away at a lot of manufacturing jobs. But even then, manufacturing still employs a lot of Americans and those can be good paying stable jobs like Joe Biden often says. And by the way we've seen during this pandemic that we've needed a boost in producing things like protective gear and ventilators. But aside from that, think about demographics. There are lots of white men in manufacturing. Trump has done very well with them so Biden could maybe pick up some votes there. And super importantly, manufacturing is big, big and swing states like Pennsylvania, where from where Biden was today.

I would say with the Internet versus direct now because now I have the opportunity to basically and I. When we were riffing a little bit before we started that I'm unable to fish without bay. By that you know in in a direct mail package. You always have to lead to the sale immediately because you're paying a lot of money to be in the mail with this piece. That's going into someone's mailbox, so you really have to. Have the call to action, and you got lead up to it and all of that online you could I mean I have I. I just did a course copywriters. Yesterday and I'm not. I'm not a copywriter. I mean I write a lot of copy and everybody's copywriter to some degree, but the idea that copywriter kind of weirds me out because I don't write sales, letters left and right. What would I do is I blog every week I was going through my by half blocks or going back five years, and every blog is has a purpose. It's got you say it's got Achieve something from me I. Mean sometimes aren't even have a PS in. It and people say how come you didn't have a PS. I said well. I didn't want one house that. Because I'm figuring that next week. You'll read my blog because you read it this week. And then maybe I'll have a ps that all will something now what I do in my in my life, I mean I'm not a nonprofit so I'm not looking to You know to not make a profit in my business, but I'm basically my women. The consistency is so important because my blog goes out every Sunday at six am us, eastern time regardless I, get something in the mail. Everybody knows who opens it. They know it's going to be content, and that's why the content it's like it's like content, marketing and away so I have this long blog. I might refer to something. with with a link that might be something that was something I had sold in the past or I'm talking about the great copywriter. Jean Schwartz and breakthrough advertising, and just hyperlink breakthrough advertising, because I sell it not subtle, but I'm not really selling, and then I use the PS as my selling vehicle. so and when I say selling vehicle. Telling, you know I I. You know I have a mastermind group that Scott a hundred seventy people in it for two thousand dollars a year, and I'll put down in the PS I'll say you know the thing I was talking about. It came up in our call at titans accelerator, and I'll hyperlink tightened celebrator, and then I'll say know, and if you want to join, go to the slain, we do calls very subtle, and again I'm dishing without bay. What I'm doing is. Shining a light over it basically saying I'm here when you need me, I'm here. You know when you're ready when you're ready. Come see me, but if you don't WanNa see me now, that's fine. And so it's the whole spirit of. Life is long. That that you are To think that everything you do has to sell. All the time is just crazy now. A lot of people do it. A lot of people think I. Leave a lot of money on the table because I could be selling like crazy every week. And I don't I also one thing I, do and again I'm not endorsing these things. This is what I do. But. This is in the in the spirit of using content strategically. I don't do affiliate deals. So if someone wants I, have a if someone has a copywriting course and want to advertise in my in my blog. I don't do it for commission, but if I have a strategic way to use it. I do that, so I just did it last week. It was really exciting. This guy who's a WHO's a top notch copywriter just developed this incredible course, and I endorse it I mean it's a great course, and it's a thousand hours. And I said I said to him. I said all. I said I don't want the you'll. He chose two thousand dollars means the commission five hundred dollars so for everyone I I sell I would get five hundred dollars I said to the guy. I don't want the five hundred dollars, but if I can link it up with my titans, accelerator program and people who pay two thousand dollars for their years, subscriptions accelerator if they buy your course and. And I could reduce their their fi five hundred dollars to fifteen hundred from two thousand I would do that, because then. He's getting the same amount of money that he would gotten from my link. He's getting his thousand dollars and he's giving me five hundred, but I'm taking the five hundred and I'm giving it to my my my people, not I'm not jumping. It's my people for a discount. If I can swing. At that's what I'll do an affiliate. or I'll give it to charity, and I'll even say giving it to charity. 'cause it also. It enhances it always. It always enhances yourself by standing on the shoulders of someone else like you know when I when I When I give Like to take credit for a way of looking at things or a quote, or a a method, and I go out of my way to make sure that you know who invented that. I gotTA give him credit. I? Think it's way better. Because again I didn't invent anything, but I want to give people credits for it, and you get you get so much more from giving people credit, but finding it is the kids I never would have found it without you so I'm the bloodhound looking for everything. I found you this course. You never would have found it on your own. But it says it's amazing. I didn't invent it. It's great, and so that kind of thing is also just a great way to. Use content strategically so there's a lot of elements to it. But I I and I have a philosophy of my blog, which is my philosophy and I'm sticking to it, and it's not necessarily the best, but it's. It's what I do. Yeah I Well, there was several things there. That were starting to to ring bells in my head. Brian but the the. Accreditation. Not Accreditation but but crediting your source with something. I learned I went through a communications degree. In in university. And they emphasize that and I. Just it just totally made sense to me, and as time has gone on, I've found you can. Even you can even play with it. You know so my favorite way of saying it is I stole this from from Ballantyne, but he stole it from somebody else, too, so you know. That's funny when I I have a close US ally. It's in my book. The if you're the smartest person in the room, you're wrong room. So I went on I, went on, and on the Google and I tried to find you know who said it and I found all these like like you know thought leaders taking credit for it like and he got, and was like these guys that I never even, and I went back, and I went back, and I went back, and I finally found out who said it originally, and it was Confucius. That's about as far back as I go. I go. said it I made a t shirts with the whole oil you know. If you're smart person in the room. You're in the wrong Confucius and have a big picture of Confucius, and so I put a big picture on the back of the t shirts because you know what stop taking credit for it, I've used it forever in my in my work. I've used it. Totally, but I never never said and people give me credit for it is said. Brian Kurtz always says. I didn't invent it. It's Confucius now, so I.

Either full interviews or a comment or question from past interviews time wise, it's about one to four minutes long on an average. When you when you live long enough, all kinds of strange things happened. Very, right in saying that the Greek heroes were the original superheroes. In part because of the whole nature of genes vision, but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion. Recently, I spoke to Greg Miller. He's the author of Star Wars Memories someone who's involved in the very beginning of the Star Wars. Universe and we talked about Gary Kurtz Yeah. Gary does not get I feel the credit he deserves. I mean not to take anything away from George of course. AIRY was part of the creation of Star Wars. He worked with George on American graffiti. As. They were sitting in I don't know where they were sitting, but they wanted to go see a movie, and this was in the early seventies I guess like seventy two seventy three something like that and the way you decided what movie go to back then if you look in the newspaper to see what was playing. And back when we still had newspapers and they look through the paper and they couldn't find anything they wanted to fe. and so they decided they should make a movie like they wanNA sing which was going to be like a science fiction adventure movie. And at first they went, they approached universal where George had an overall deal. Yet a three picture deal based on American graffiti. About doing Flash Gordon, 'cause universal owned the rights to Flash Gordon. But they would not. They were not interested and they wouldn't sell the rights. so they decided to do something else. which was star, wars or Star Wars than idea? That Georgia come up with in college, although it significantly different as produced than his original version. In some ways he was both the. Technological brain and the spirit behind Kerry was a very spiritual guy. And he's been credited by Georgian others for really having come up with. The whole concept behind the force George wanted had the force, but Gary was the figured out how it worked and how it played through everything. And he was I've I worked on a lot of movies over the years worse because a lot of directors and producers and Gary was by far the most knowledgeable. Filmmaker he actually, he was not a deal guy although he did make deals. He actually had been a camera man. He had been found man He was in U. USC film school with George. He was the one everyone always went to when there was a production difficulty when there was. How are we going to get this done? He really knew how to get the movie made and on the budget they had available. so yeah, he really isn't as credited as he should be. And I I? Do have a section as you know in the book about Gary. Just became rightly sung uses well known as he should be. Look for Star Wars Memories ever you get your books..

The Secret History of the Korean Bat Flip
"Can you explain in your own words? What a best slip actually is so normally. When a baseball player has a big hit he just kinda gently lays down his right and continues on his way down the base path. But sometimes that doesn't happen sometimes. A hitter is very proud and here. She will watch the ball takeoff and sometimes they'll pause sometimes. They'll do this while they're running. But instead of gently laying down the bet they will launch it into space. There are many different ways of doing this. It can be a flick of the wrist. It can be a throw a defiant curl. Perhaps the bat can travel feet. The back can travel very far but often it sort of twirls through the air majestically like a baton and flip is it's almost like spiking a football Pablo AIDS Celera Tori gesture and as you know. This is something that is taboo. In the United States in major league. Baseball violates the unwritten rules and executing this maneuver will often result in a hitter. Getting next time he's up but in Korea. Backflips are not only accepted. There are also extremely common. That was yes. Our Own Mina cards describing a unique feature of baseball in Korea. The Korean baseball starts it season today as one of the only pro leagues on earth playing amid this pandemic and you'll be able to watch those games on ESPN. So since you might just see. K B O Player flip is bat. I asked me to be a guest on her own show to share my favorite story that she has ever written on why Korean players love to flip their bats. And how it start. I'm Pablo Torre. Tuesday may fifth this is espn daily presented by marathon. I feel insane power right now. I don't know how I feel about this. Meantime is a senior writer for ESPN and the host of this podcast ESPN daily. I am the captain. Now you will feel how I want you to feel. I think is how this works. People can't see this but Pablo was doing the thing where he points his fingers at his eyes and then he's pointing them at my eyes and it's it's very upsetting. So how did the story which I love so much? Actually come about what it was. I think the spring or early summer of two thousand sixteen which is important because we are coming off of the two thousand fifteen. Mlb playoffs whereas. I'm sure you will remember Joey. Batista flipped his Bat. Which feels almost like. I'm understanding what he did after a home run in the AL between the Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers and there were much hand wringing and commentary debate as a result of that critics called the Bat Slip Disrespectful. Not only to the opposing pitcher. Button the game in general if I were a player I wouldn't do that. The fact that a matter is what he did did not offend you. Just don't sit. There is flip your badge especially in the seventh inning but throughout this time and before that there were these videos of backflips coming from Korea. Right ed where Korean baseball players were flipping their bats do as defiantly as Batista and with great joy and style and panache. These videos had gone viral social media. Just so I started looking to a little bit. There's a it was an account on twitter. A website called my K B O. Run by a Korean American guy named Dan Kurtz and so he was sending them out and then they would go. Viral asked him how he got into it. He used to live in Korea. He was huge B O. Fan Korean baseball organization. But then I asked him okay. So why why are they so common in Korea? Why is this normal there? Why our guys not getting drilled in the head and? He didn't know and super intrigued by that. So I got in touch with another Korean baseball expert commentator for the O named Daniel Kim who is based in Korea and he had so many great stories about that flips and what not they there and how they were so common but he also didn't know why or where it started and he told me you should just come here and figure it out. So that's what I did so you actually go to Korea and this. I remember I remember it sounding like one of the great expense report boondoggles ever but you actually go to Korea with Mickey and your story begins in Bussan right and so what you're actually find when you travel across the ocean and get there so we went to Poussin which is extremely large seaside city on the southern tip of South Korea so they have a very popular team the low tae giants and the first thing we do. Is We go to a game at the stadium and it was revelatory cream. It is just crazy crowds. They're much younger than American crowds and they are cheering and dancing and going nuts. And they're they're drinking beer. I guess that's also different. They're all these events. There are cheerleaders cheer master and they're standing on a platform and it is just so much fun. There's an American Fan Mickey and I met at the first game that carry my her and he told us. Mlb is like opera and K B O is like rock and roll so were there and we're having a great time and all of a sudden this player who we. I'd seen before because I had seen of backflips name was Choi Jin Sook and public. He is enormous. That's just the only way to describe is an enormous? He would be so he comes out and his song is Elmo Maceo shots just were not I remember that

And so the whole thing about how anybody everybody's got to deal with in life is long but and then I have a whole series of different things in next chapter that talk about how you can be fulfilled for your life looking at it. I don't think I don't think I talked about the quarter to quarter Aspect of strategic coach. But I did talk about you know living in the resin doing stuff like I think. I have the whole thing about intentional. Dinners have dinners with people who will share with you. I have I have a I have. I have a really interesting story in there about you. Know don't don't think you need it. Don't don't think you'll have a little humility. Don't think it made it just because I have a story about how I L. I passed over some guy. It's a very interesting story. I hope people get the book can read it I've got a guy on Christmas cards in July about how you appreciate people because I always I talk about it. He's not in the book but I've been doing a speech lately about the five ways we get paid and the fifth is cash. Four ways are really you get paid? And it's IT'S. It's that you utilize that you enhanced people that you appreciate people and you refer people and you do those four things. You will be able to utilize other people you will. You will be able to get enhancements for other people. You will get appreciated back. Even if you're not expecting it from other people and you will get referred by other people and that's really how you make money by those four things and so That I think if I if I redid by ever do another edition of the book. Get that in there too because that that was a that was a real revelation in terms of Thinking about in terms of the five ways we get paid. That's really great and your Christmas cards in July. By the way we implemented that at my after I read that 'cause we were sending them out at Christmas and then I read that and I was like. Oh this makes so much sense like we'll do it so we did it at a different time this year and it was amazing. The response and feedback we got was was greatly improved just because nobody else was sending anything at the same time. Yeah it was awesome so really really great stuff in there.

"So those are the things that I've been thinking about a lot during covert but they go beyond close because you know people should be doing this. Normally Intel health could be an alternative. Even if you can get out of the house because you're sick or you Or a snowstorm or whatever and then you know you you have both working for you all the time and again you're meeting somebody you know one is alive and one is could be recorded. It's recorded but they're both Kinda live but one is one is one is off. Kline one is online right. So they'd be in different quadrants there so it is interesting to think about media and messaging in that in that context tonight. I do all the time. And so it's differentiation as key. Specialization is all that you know. I even told this guy. He's got four different things that he wants to do. Online have have four videos. Have one video for physical therapists. Have one video for acupuncture. Have one video for fitness and one video for meditation and even if you just do the beginning different and do the rest of the same you at least have a lead in to market and then then. It's it's Morgan to list at scrape. And you said you were talking in previous podcasts. About you know talking to your market markets and you gotTa have the copy to the to the list all the time. I always say not not going to tell you whether a trump supporter or I'm a not a trump supporter. But I will tell you that Donald Trump's Campaign for presidency in two thousand sixteen is a marketing a case history for the ages about how he knew his audience and he knew the message thing that would appeal perfectly to them. You know going to build a wall and I'm GONNA put a door in it. I mean who doesn't understand that and that goes back to Gary Halbert or a lot of the great copywriters and I'm sure trump didn't study copywriters to do this but he understood instinctively that you know you want a right to kind of like a fifth or sixth grade level and don't use big words and use the words that your audience using them not saying trump supporters are dumb but most people are done in the world and you're not writing for the Harvard PhD. You're writing for the everyman Europe to write dumb copy. You just have to write up that suited for everybody at least common denominator. I think there's something called the Hemingway score that you can score your copy. What level your copy is APP? Based on the words you use an actually I. I know from my blog. Someone did Hemingway on me and I was surprised. And he's I think he said I was like a tenth or eleventh grade level which is not good. It's really not good either. You don't WanNa be that high You appeal to some people but if you're fifth sixth seventh grade level you're going to be appealing to a lot bigger audience. Yeah I mean you again. A ton of things there. I know with the Hemingway score like I use a tool called grimly. That tells you what level you're writing at and there's also. I think there's actually a hemingway APP. That's free that you just put your stuff in and it tells you. I've always said I wanted to do that. I never did it so I was so lazy. I'M GONNA go get it now but will the whole thing about knowing your audience. Your market I think is so key and we actually just talked about that in episode one of season two. So if you haven't listened to that go back and listen to that well by but that idea of identifying exactly who you want to get to and most people just blaze right over this like I just want to sell to everybody and I just you know who do you want to sell to. Whoever will buy? And they don't spend any time like really digging down into exactly what that buyer you know what their fears are what they're looking to do what their life is like I. Even I interviewed Last week Shannon McCaffrey from the titans accelerator group in mock. She even brought a thing up to me that I hadn't even thought of before either about how in her customer profiles. She writes how she wants her customers to interact with her like. I want them to value my time. I want them An. I hadn't thought of that. There's so many benefits to that. Including what Shannon said. But you've got a You know it's always narrow to why so you WanNa start as narrow as you can now. Most people like inventors people have a new product or service. They just assume that it's good for everybody so I had. I had somebody in my masterclass couple of years ago and she had a time management tool. That was really works for anybody. I mean in her mind I mean. Let's say let's say it does but let's say it works very and it's impossible to take time management tool mail it to everybody and expect really good results and to be able to get a good price for it in general so I I interviewed her about it and I said eventually I got to the point. Was You have people who are using it? He says yeah. I got a lot of people using it. I said WHO's written you. The biggest checks for how they're using or who. Who Have you had a few people in a certain category and it so happened that her two biggest clients for this product were both kind of self-help personal development types. So then I said at least you can narrow it down and just go after them you'll be able to get so much more out of them and you will. You'll get you'll make so much more money and it's not just about the money but then you'll be able to dive deep. Find out what they want. Find out what they need Kinda Chan and says I also say that you really want your Your audience to just be. I had a story in a blog. Once it was a guy who had a product that he said I have had this product. And it's going to help men in their midlife crisis and I said that's a pretty narrow market. I said sarcastically. And I say what you know. Y You qualified to do that. And he said on qualified to do it because I that was fifty two years old. I I I lost my job. I became an alcoholic. My wife left me. I know relationship with my kids. I almost committed suicide. He had the whole line of things but he came out of it at the other end and he was kind of cured or he saw the light and he wants to teach that to other men. Go through that and I said okay. You kind of have a qualification based on your experience through it but if you try to sell that to everybody they're not all gonna be able to relate to you and they're not gonna you know really dot. Yuk died it and I asked the right question I said. What were you doing for a living when you had the nervous breakdown? And he said was lawyer and I said Oh we got it now. Why don't you just go after recovering? Attorneys go go deep on that. There are enough attorneys. Who hate their job. Who even if they don't go through a midlife crisis. You could just go for disgruntled attorneys by. I could see the lead on on on the sales letter asked. If you're an attorney chances are you're miserable or something like that. If they're not a miserable attorney you don't want him anyway so Y- know you can and then once you target bad that's an ascension that's like product a coaching program a mastermind that you could move up and that's enough you're gonna go say be in in the online market today. You really want something. That's you know a product or a course or something that's A. That's a a reasonable price. You want to move them up to a coaching program or something. A little bit more Dan Sullivan. Who Coaches entrepreneurs as much as anybody in the world is probably the number one coach for entrepreneurs he always says coaching is to today as management was in the Nineteen Eighties and think about coaching. It's not just management in a business but everybody has a coach now everybody. Has You know a a Consiglieri A confidant someone who's walking them through stuff and you know if you can be that coach people pay a lot of money for it if you're effective at it and how are you going to be affected at it. You GOTTA BE NARROW. Outta be going you gotta be a mile deep so that your client is only a quarter of a mile deep in the you can take them with you. It's going to be a lot harder to take everybody when you're not you're you're only an eighth of a mile deep in their deeper in a lot of other things it just makes so much sense so it's differentiation and specialization is the combination that you really need. Yeah that's so true. One one other thing I wanted to talk about before we wrap up this interview though and we actually been talking about it. I think this whole episode with Your Hundred Zero and you talk about your list is your online family and the importance of connections and things like that in one of the chapters of the of overdeliver you call it a long game and I thought that story you had in there about how most people say life is short but Mardi used to always say life as long like that was like. Yeah that was like an Aha moment for me because I I don't know how many times I have. Just mindlessly said. Life is short by without even thinking about it and and when I read that I was like Oh man. I've been looking at this all wrong and I think especially in the online marketing space. People tend to think it's the shorten the quick money. Yeah and maybe we can talk a little bit about that. Yeah Yeah I mean it's it's basically you know. Everybody talks about cold traffic in getting the order and acquisition. And I say if you have that if you do acquisitions a cold traffic with the second order in mind. That's GonNa make you so much better at the second third and fourth order in mind. It's even better and they gotta be related whereas a lot of online marketers. They think that a product is a business and they have a product and they go boom boom boom and they just milk it and they keep on making money with it. That's that could be business but it's not a business for the long haul and neither is a promotion. You have a winning promotion on Click Bank or you're doing affiliates with a letter or whatever it can make a lot of money but it's the short game and you want to have that long And mortar used to say lights as long because he felt that you only have your one Weiss so if you look at it as long then it becomes short and Dan Sullivan has another take on it. Which is he says that I did a blog post once it was called living. Two hundred and fifty six and Dan has a whole will concept in strategic coach that he teaches is that it's quarter-by-quarter. Everything's a ninety day segments and you're not looking ahead that makes life short. You make lifelong and you plan at your life in ninety day segments. And that's why a lot of that's why he's got all the best entrepreneurs in his program because they go to quarterly quarterly and we work on our next ninety days for the most part and so you know all of that is tied up in the life is long concept and it's it's the only way to live in. I'll give you another angle on it. I mean if I if I if I thought life was short A YEAR AGO. Just almost exactly a year ago. I had I had a massive stroke And Came really close to dying In fact the the neurologist who saw me a couple weeks after my stroke couldn't believe because he has seen me in the hospital..

Now you know free inches apart and you know if you know something if everything about something share it as much as you can so that therefore you know it spreads it out you're paying it forward and I gotTa tell you it it comes back now. I've been in the business for four years and I did thirty four years of boardroom. I became rector became an equity partner in the company. I work done already. Elston who was the founder. And then you know five. Years ago I started I left boardroom. Went out on my own. I have this company small company. It's titans marketing and I've got a couple of masterminds urine. One of them is accelerator program. Which I really really proud of six hundred fifty of just great marketers copywriters and entrepreneurs all helping each other Just a wonderful wonderful groups and then I have my titans mastermind which is a more of an expensive senior group of solid. Everybody accelerators accelerate took. But they're they're more sophisticated direct marketers and they are all members in accelerator to because they're in mastermind and now those folks are all like interacting and it's just so much fun I mean I you know I might my work and might play. Are you don't know if I'm working playing 'cause I this is what was on the back of Marty's business card it's like it's like you never On my wall to whether he is You know you don't know whether I'm working or playing because I'm always doing both and it's a nice place to be. I would say I'm retired now. It's because I retired from things I don't like to do. I've retired from things I don't do well and retired from people. I don't want to hang around with so based on that definition of retirement you know about eighty five percent there so it's pretty good. It's pretty but I paid my dues and I did a lot of a lot of you know. I had a lot of big successes. I had a lot of big failures. I learned a lot. That's that's what over delivers. I have a lot of big successes in that book. I talk about my failures in that book. All in the context of you know the the subtitle of the book is You know build a business for a lifetime by playing the long game in direct response. Marketing and playing the long game means you. You never lose but you win or you learn and hopefully that after forty years of winning and learning winning learning learning being losing. But it's not really losing that you accumulate enough wisdom you've got enough to be able to teach and Jay. Abraham who wrote the forward for the book always said to me. You know it's it's not even choice to teach it's our obligation to teach you know if if you've done it you have to teach it. It's it's your obligation before you die you know and You know so. I'm living by that mostly at this point my career and Having a good time doing it. So that's like that's like my career and in five or ten minutes. Well I mean you you touch on a lot of things just in that five minutes a couple of things that I think are super important to our listeners. One is you know the you talked about. You know the connecting with other people and I think like a a misconception that a lot of people have about online marketing. Is that a lot of people want to get in and do it and not talk to anybody like they want to hide behind the computer screen and you know my experience has been it it. It requires just as much networking and one to one communication. As if you are out there in the real world building of business and I really got that from your from your book when you were talking about that at connecting part and your your hundred and ten. That's one hundred and ten roll right on one hundred senior in two hundred zero one hundred zero. You go into every relationship giving one hundred percent and you don't expect anything in return and that's what it's really about and so interesting you said though about about you know. I think there's some. There's some data on the percentage of entrepreneurs that are actually introverts and I think it's like I don't know might be seventy percent or eighty percent. Maybe it's not that high but for the purposes of this conversation let's say it's seventy seven and but that doesn't mean you can withdraw from society and it's interesting because when I went out on my own sitting in my basement as opposed to an office of eighty people it. It was a big shocker. For me because I'm an extrovert and I gotta tell you. Zoom is amazing because it gives you an opportunity guy. I want a guy I do calls with my accelerator group by do do all sorts of stuff with my mastermind group office hours every and. I don't want to do anything. That's not video at least so that at least on making it's not the same as being with them But it's amazing that you know you gotTa have a connection. And what's interesting is that we're we're recording this During the Corona Virus Cove in nineteen which you know I want this interview to live forever but you know it happens to be happening now and there are so many ways to connect even when you're socially distance you know and it out and it's not only it's not only video audio but it's also you know. Dare I say direct mail where I grew up? I grew up in direct mail in the In the eighties nineties and I always say even today the least crowded. Inbox is the one at the at the end of your driveway. Or the one that is in your lobby of your building and during the cove in nineteen twenty twenty thing My Mailbox is was always empty emptier and now it's even emptier than that and what an opportunity for great marketers to go after you know going to direct mail and you know what like you talk about. Restaurants that are that are not able to to Have people eat them but they could do all around and it's it's so interesting because a lot of them are giving up or a lot of them. Just put us this store and say you know. Take out curbside delivery but if they if they just called up all the college students high school students and did a direct mail campaign by going door to door with a a special main saying you ring the doorbell because you can too you could but you can't ring the doorbell and it's not just throwing a menu in the in the door or in the mailbox but you actually going to go to the door. Put a one pager that it's like a menu like a a limited menu and say I want to cook dinner for you tonight and put like a couple of specials with the the price crossed out and special price with restaurants phone number and then if the restaurant really wanted to go another step they could accumulate the phone numbers of everybody that got got a menu dropped off and go outbound call them and say hey. Did you get my menu? I want to cook dinner for you tonight. Make a reservation. You know so those kinds of things. That's direct now but it's one to one in a weird kind of way. So you know I I got off on a tangent there but I I I I really resonated with what you said about you. Know making that connection It can happen in so many ways in so many different Things that you can do. I mean I always say. Advertising opportunities are now incident and you can take the ones that are tried and true and turn them into something else. I mean if you if I took the top ten people in my accelerator group. Who were I don't know? They bought a book from me. Federal Express the book with a note they might end the mastermind member. One day. Or something you gotTa treat your best customers with everybody's VIP in my. I always say my listeners. By online family Because I hate lists for people to you. Don't want to treat them like a number. But you gotta you gotta you gotTa Walk You. GotTa you gotta you gotta you. Don't just have to talk the talk on that. You gotta walk the walk on your your your online family and and that it's not networking it's contributing to connect. That's been my. That's been my life. Mostly yeah that well. That's awesome what you said about the direct. Now I'm always telling people like in my in my other business or reteach people how to grow agencies. I'm always telling them like. I had success with direct mail just sending out letters to local businesses. Like Kay I can help you with your marketing and I'm always telling people like do that because no one gets out. Nobody gets letters these days and you know you just do some simple things like hand address them. You don't even have to send out a lot and it's like the the response is amazing. Compared exhibits email is. Do you do something you can have it? Make a bulky package if it's you know if you have somebody who's a more A customer that you know is a little more There's also thing I in my book. I have a section. I think it's on abuse in the office chapter. I call it. Oto offline to online offline or online offline on that. It's not it's not an effect. I think on This week we're going to have on accelerator. We're GONNA Perry Marshall Speak. About something that he calls nays two point. Oh and as e e two point. Oh it's just a phenomenal thing. Because he's it's basically two axes that criss cross and on one axes on either end. It's either online versus offline and then on the other two axes it's live versus recorded and you can put any media. In one of those four quadrants something that's Laughlin something that slide and online something that's recorded offline or recorded online and recorded could be be printed also so you could put like every media like hundreds and hundreds of media in those four things and then you take a look at like two or three in each quadrant and if you decide where your product is most suited you go into into those and you can basically look like you're everywhere without trying everything all day long? So that's what I'm going to really dive deep in that with Barry because it's just an amazing concept and it really is you know marketing if it's not multichannel it's kind of a waste of time because if your entire businesses on Amazon for example and I knew a company that had a thirty million dollar business in supplements on Amazon and one day this Amazon calls up and says I'm not taking your ads anymore because you violated this or I don't like him anymore. Your Business and of course you know all about facebook. Not You know shutting you down or or or Google shutting down and that's why you have to be diversified for one thing. That's why it's out. Oh a you also WanNa pick places where you can if you get shut out of one or one stops working you can easily toggle back and forth and you have to meet your customers where they want to be met. And that's what it's all about what I think one thing that gets missed in this kind of Kovic nineteen air right now like I see a lot of people using it as an advantage to say see. You should be doing online. You should have an online business. You should be doing online because of the Corentin things that our employees but one of the things that occurred meals like instead of just as easily been a catastrophe that took down the Internet. And then where would all those online businesses be so the thing? I think I get out of this. It's not about being one or the other. It's about being just like you said diversified and I know for us You know we have. Our our agencies will help to local businesses.
"kurtz" Discussed on You Can Heal Your Life
"Brian. Kurtz sues He's a business man. He's been around for a long time he worked at this newsletter called Board Room like a company that did newsletters. And he's GonNa. We'll get him to tell us a little bit about that. I know that my Christina used to be in charge of publicity here at Hey House at our big dream was to get people in that newsletter. 'cause it reached so many people and help so many people and we used to have lain dire in there and other of our authors and Brian also wrote a book for House called overdeliver and it's a marketing oriented book. How you can overdeliver for your customers to help them. And I I'm doing this whole series with thirty different authors and thirty days and I thought it would be a great change because so many of us are involved in business or thinking about businesses. We might want to start or you know. Everyone has a job. Mostly I mean in some way or can relate a little bit to what we talk about four business so I wanted to have a different approach. So welcome Brian. Thanks read in an IT's It's a pleasure because I I don't you know when when we originally did the overdeliver book I always said. You know I'm not I'm not personal development guy but on the other hand you know personal development and marketing always go hand in hand. We talked about that a lot and so I can't be the guiding force for a lot of a lot of people who are listening On you know meditation and And Yoga and all kinds of spiritual stuff will though I am very spiritual but I think that I kind of convert that into a business mindset and it's all about over delivering and now more than ever. I think we all have to think about how we can over deliver to our customers. Our students are prospects. Whatever and there's so much you can do in just looking around me and there's so many people that are inaction doing a lot of really amazing things and I'm trying to be out there to teaching and learning and figuring out more things that we can do up so some people definitely are a challenging time right now. A lot of people losing their jobs because of the economy. I mean it's really. There's not a lot businesses can do sometimes to to hold on to everybody but I know Louise always used to say you know like if if you lose your job out one place. It's just an opportunity to find another job somewhere else and for some people might be the opportunity even to start their own job or to be and charge of their own way of going and I know even for entrepreneurs some are having a tough. Some are doing good. What are you noticing out there with everybody? How they're dealing with this situation. Well I see obviously the entrepreneurs because they they went into a business. That was probably risky in a good time. They're they're somewhat less effective at. I mean their their their challenge. Sure but they're they're less effective because everything about their mindset and the way they work is all about overcoming risk so just that the risk has mounted doesn't mean that they give up or they back off they actually go into it. You know head first The the people who are working in a company where they get or if you own you know a brick and mortar type company Whether it's a restaurant or your you know you've got a pharmacy or or food store or you've got your an eye doctor or chiropractor. Those are the people that I seem to the people that those people that seem to be coming to me more and saying what you got. What do you have for him? You're a marketer of what can I do and you know I. I'm just pushing the envelope for those people because they need to you know. Try to hold on for the two or three months and it looks like it's going to be another two or three months. I I duNno. I. I'M NOT NOT A infectious disease doctor. I'm not a prognosticator. But we've gotTA figure out ways to create revenue wall over delivering. What we've already done so for example you know I I've seen a lot of people in the entrepreneurial world if they have a following were a big facebook group or just a big list there. Just you know sending out more stuff to help people. I mean I'm doing it. I mean I'm just I'm going to send out more might blog more often. I'm going to Get on the phone with my groups and and just just give them more content not to overload them with content because they're also really stressed. And what do I listen to? What do I not listen to but I try? I'm trying to give them specific ideas that can kind of get their mind in a in a place that says I don't have to give up right now. I might not be able to make the income that I was making. You know pre cove nineteen but I can really do some things that if I if I don't make the money and I can hold on and I can give you know as much as I can to my core customers. My students if you have students Whatever I I mean most people should call their clients students. They should call their prospects Family you know I always say my online family instead of my list and so if you treat them like family you just want to give them stuff you WANNA. I heard about this here. Look at this look at this presentation. I found on facebook. Look at this look at that and so there is an amazing. This is happening all over my email. All over my facebook is that just people are looking to just give not give back just give. I mean Dan Sullivan says that. You Know Entrepreneur. Gore's should give not give back because they never took anything while if that's the case they know should just keep giving and and. I'm seeing a lot of that as far as the brick and mortar businesses. I'm trying to like if you're if you're there was a chiropractor in my group. He was lamenting that his offices closed. Everything he does on personal visits and I was just explaining to him that you know how about can you afford pace so that can you give your clients or patients away to get a free visit once? This is all over and at the same time you know. Be Able to sell them something that could ease their pain whether it's a drop ship supplement or it's a laser of some sort that you can you can white label from someone you know. I mean I think you have to do some research and you have to do a little work but someone's home. They regularly go to the chiropractor. Chances are they still have back pain. And if you can alleviate that pain without seeing them that's the key in the case of a restaurant I've been really fascinated by this because I think that you can. I think if you're going to be the PROACTIV one you're GONNA get more business and it's not gonna equal probably what you were doing in your restaurant but if you can you know employ a college students to go door to door with a with a flyer which is like direct mail and don't knock on the door but just give them a one page thing that says. I WanNa make you dinner tonight. And has the specialties of that restaurant and then you have a phone number. Call me anytime I'm I'm I'm I'm not we. You can't sit in my restaurant but I really want to Cook you dinner and then you can go out and call them once they have the little menu and you know you. Can you know? Of course you want to do things like discount. Also you want to cross out the price of whatever. The price was on your menu and just discounted and being able to. I mean there are. There are restaurants that are just cooking for free if you don't have any money and that takes it to another level and that that's doable too. But I think it I live in a a fairly affluent town in you know the people have the money they just don't want to go out and so you know that's an and then I. Interestingly I had a call yesterday with a company in California that does fumigating. That basically can disinfect. Your office to your home and we were brainstorming ideas of you know if if they could go just to the pharmacies grocery stores and the restaurants which are the businesses that are open and doing stuff they could basically make a deal with them going to the grocery store find the owner Say I want a fumigate? You know the entire store you'll close for two hours. It may not open twenty four hours probably and then you know put on your window you know that we were just humiliated so you don't have to worry we're going to keep sick. We're going to keep six feet apart. We're GONNA do social distancing but we've just fumigated so you know that the the story is clean and then go to your facebook page and say you know we're we're fumigating. Whatever three times a week four times a week and I think that it's sort of like if you're going to be if you're GONNA do it do it. I mean be proactive. Show that your you know your for the customer. It's all about them. Not About you. You're not fumigating because you WANNA fumigate your fumigating to get more customers so that they can feel more comfortable and it's all about safety and so we were brainstorming from that point of your customers have to be safe when they're in the store. What are the best ways to do that? You have a solution. So that you know the being the fumigation. How can you put that you know in the hands of the the the store owner at an acceptable price? You can do repeat business and you're doing an incredible service and you know if you discount or you do it at cost you can. You're setting up for the future so when this is over they're gonNA remember you and that's a big thing of course that anything you do. In marketing that has over delivery built into it and as as as a bonuses built into it has has discounts or free. Things built into it. Hopefully you're not doing it because of that but you hope that they might remember you when this is all over because you did the Masala during this time you know so if you have a product or service that can can help people right now There are many ways to be proactive. And the pro activity becomes your differentiator. I mean I've been home. I've been I was in Italy Right before this happen and I came home. I self quarantined for two weeks. I've been in my house for four weeks basically. I haven't gotten anything from a restaurant. I haven't gotten anything from a grocery store saying you know we're we're safer than the other guys and I think that if I did I feel more confident to go out and get stuck so I think you have to think about what's in the mind of of the customer right now what you can do for them at either a good price of free price a discounted price whatever. I mean the pricing becomes. You know your thing but this is about being able to over deliver for everybody by like he said like the everyone's Kinda reaching out to help each other like here at hey house. We started our free resource page. Anyone can go to discover dot hayao hs dot com slash free resources and we have.
Arizona man dies after attempting to take Trump coronavirus 'cure'
"On March twenty first trump re tweeted quote a drug Sickler Quinn and is it through a mice and taken together have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine people may be surprised by the weather will be a game changer but back game took an ugly turn an Arizona man died after taking chemicals that he thought would protect him from corona virus and his wife is in the hospital this morning the couple took chloroquine phosphate the active ingredient is also found in aquarium cleaner kills algae what would be your message to the American public our goal thank you I right right but I have yes the president is even more than usually present with his rallies canceled he's turned to the daily coronavirus press briefings into spasms of self congratulation I dreaded attend I think we've done a great job the question is what is the press's proper role here in these daily briefings Washington post media columnist Margaret Sullivan floated the idea of simply not airing them live so the press says time to sift the facts from reckless statements and while you may be a professor Jay Rosen thinks the media should not repeat the president's unsupported assertions at all unless they're sandwiched between context and fact he goes even further suggesting that the press boycott trump briefings and photo ops fox news channel's media reporter Howard Kurtz called cutting trump's Mike quote the height of condescension as if he wrote to the media think Americans are too dumb to recognize spin and that quote only the pundits and the press are smart enough to figure that out so they will watch the president and then filter out what you need
Playing The Hero
"They flow four from public health officials celebrities. Medical experts politicians facebook friends. Partisan trolls some remediated by the media. Others are just ad libbed untruths from on high. Anybody right now. Anybody that needs desk gets there. They have the tests and the tests are beautiful. Two weeks later still in catastrophically short supply. Meanwhile earlier this week trump waxed rhapsodic about a holiday reprieve Easter as our timeline. What a great time line. That would be the beautiful beautiful unless you don't want a holy day celebrating. Rip Birth to be the occasion for spreading deadly contagion to prevent that. You need some sort of miracle On March twenty first trump re tweeted quote hydroxy chloroquine and as if taken together have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine and people may be surprised by the way that would be a game changer. But that game took an ugly turn in Arizona. Man Died after taking chemicals that he thought would protect him from Corona virus and his wife is in the hospital this morning. The couple took chloroquine phosphate. The active ingredient is also found. An aquarium cleaner kills algae. What would be your message to the American public? Take anything completely anything yet. The president is even more than usually present with his rallies cancelled. He's turned the daily Corona Virus. Press briefings into spasms of self-congratulation rated at ten. I think we've done a great job. The question is what is the presses proper role here in these daily briefings Washington. Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan floated the idea of simply not airing them live. So the press has time to sift facts from reckless statements. Nyu media professor. Jay Rosen thinks. The media should not repeat the president's unsupported assertions at all unless they're sandwiched between context and fact he goes even further suggesting that the press boycott trump's briefings and photo ops Fox News Channel's media reporter Howard Kurtz called cutting trump's mike quote the height of condescension as if he wrote the media think Americans are too dumb to recognize spin and that quote only the pundits in the press are smart enough to figure that out so they will watch the president and then fill out what you need to know. Of course filtering explaining and contextualising is exactly what the press is supposed to do in all of its coverage on the other hand. Such basic journalism may have an unintended consequence namely giving cover to a chronically untruthful commander in chief. Here's how Atlantic's Adam Serwer put it this week on. Wnyc's the takeaway. Most Americans do not watch these conferences live. I think the larger issue is that they consume them through newspaper write ups and local news clips where the falsehoods erratic behavior and rambling by the president. Downplayed as producers in editors China Hammer Trump's statements into something that can be digested his information. So there's an impulse. Even when the president is not saying something that makes sense to make it make sense somehow to right around it or to edit around so should. Tv journalists just let the nation see the emperor naked at the podium or cherry. Pick his most cogent moments. What's an enemy of the people to do last weekend? New York Times Health and science reporter Donald McNeil Junior proffered a third path diminish the White House's presence by four granting the steady and trusted experts standing nearby today as you all know after nine days we've flown over twenty two thousand sorties and air operations in those air operations. We have over twenty six air to air kills by the Coalition Air Forces. That was General Norman Schwarzkopf in Nineteen ninety-one briefing. The world on Operation Desert Storm not a politician but the government's handpicked explainer of the war. One obvious choice for preempting. The president in these circumstances is Dr Anthony. Fauci director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease. Who's already been at pains to correct the record with trump just a few socially incorrect feet away. She was explained yesterday. There has been some promise with a drug. Chloroquine is potential therapy for people who are infected with corona virus. Is there any evidence to suggest that as with malaria it might be used as a prophylaxis against code onto the answer is no and the the evidence that talking about John is anecdotal evidence but Fao she seems to have been pushed farther and farther away from the president on the reviewing? Stand this coinciding with a right wing troll campaign portraying him and other experts as partisan saboteurs out to harm president trump unless I've misinterpreted the term deep state Hillary Clinton loving stooge but if we're looking for a corona virus Schwartzkopf. There's one who already has a podium. Facts CAN BE UPLIFTING. They can be depressing at times. They can be confusing at times but I think facts are empowering New York Governor Andrew. Cuomo's morning press. Briefings haven't garnered the same. Audiences is trump's prime time appearances but they've been well covered and unlike the president's widely praised. This is partly due to New York state's unfortunate claim to epicenter status. Almost a third of the nation's confirmed cove in nineteen cases are in New York City but Cuomo claves strictly to the science the data the advice of experts and the imperative of public health. He does some pastoral work but offers no POLLYANNA declarations or unfounded. Hope in a situation like this not knowing. The facts is worse. Because that's when you feel out of control on the other hand. He is a politician and his resume is not

another another former former democratic democratic presidential presidential candidate candidate is is endorsing endorsing Joe Joe Biden Biden in a video on Twitter California senator Kamilla Harris threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

Remembering 'Star Wars' Producer Gary Kurtz
"Recently I spoke to Greg Miller. He's the author of Star Wars Memories. Someone who is involved in the very beginning of the Star Wars Universe and we talked about Gary Kurtz. Yay Gary does not get. I feel the credit he deserves. I mean not to take anything away. From George. Of course airy was part of the creation of star wars he worked with George on American graffiti and they were sitting in. I don't know where they were sitting. But they wanted to go see a movie. And this was in the early Seventies. I GUESS. Like seventy two seventy three something like that and the way you decided what movie to go back then if you look in the newspaper to see what was playing answer Back when we still had newspapers And they look through the paper and they couldn't find anything they wanted to say And so they decided they should make a movie like they wanna see which was going to be like a science fiction adventure movie and at first they went. They approached universal where George had an overall deal yet. A three picture deal based on American graffiti about doing Flash Gordon because the rights to Flash Gordon. But they would not. They were not interested. They wouldn't sell the right So they decided to do something else. Which was star wars or Star Wars than idea that Georgia come up with in college? Although it significantly different as produced than his original version in some ways he was both the technological brain and the spirit behind Kerry was a very spiritual guy and He's been credited by George and others for really having come up with the whole concept behind the force George wanted had the force. But Gary was figured out how it worked and how it played through everything and he was. I. I worked on a lot of movies over the years where a lot of directors and producers and Gary was by far the most knowledgeable filmmaker he actually he was not a deal guy though he did make deals he actually had been a camera man. He had been found man He was in U. Usc Film School with George. He was the one everyone always went to when there was a production difficulty when there was how are we going to get this stunt? He really knew how to get the movie made and on the budget they had available My own so yeah. He really isn't as credited as he should be. And I I do have a section you know in the book about Gary just became rightly so uses well known if he should be
"You can't tell g story without telling Dartmouth College Story. Dartmouth was really the Institution Matt. Handed time sharing to Ge as both use of those computers and as a way of doing business dartmouth at a very young mathematics department in the late fifty s and early nineteen sixties and several of the faculty including John. Kennedy and Thomas Kurtz had experienced in computing and saw computing as a way to attract really bright math and science students to the college by Nineteen. Sixty two you. They were ready to propose time sharing to the National Science Foundation to get funding to actually build a campus wide and eventually New England Wide Computing Network. That was efficient for the user. They really thought that computing would be a necessary skill for their students in the coming decades. And they saw time sharing as the form of computing that would enable all of their students to gain computing experience and that was revolutionary. That was something that was really not done anywhere else. At the time even at a place like mit which also implemented time sharing or Carnegie Mellon the users were primarily the scientists and engineers whereas at Dartmouth which was a liberal arts college. The users were nearly all of the student bodies have regardless of area of study or previous experience. When Kennedy and Kurtz who were the math professor's leading this project review proposals and really it was the two twenty five in combination with the data net. Thirty that. They saw the way to implement time sharing. They knew the two twenty five would quickly be upgraded. There were already plans for the two thirty five but it was really that combination of the Dana Net. Thirty which could be used to sort of stop the clocks so to speak and enable communications between users and the mainframe to twenty five or to thirty five that the Dartmouth people sort of latched onto in the early nineteen sixty s mainframe. Computers are so expensive that G. E. TO twenty-five computer cost about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Actually as delegation from DARTMOUTH WENT TO G in Phoenix hoping to create a partnership with G. E. saying we the faculty and students. Dr Will Create this time sharing system for you if you give us a two twenty five an Edina net thirty for free. Ge declined that offer but they did give the college a substantial discount. I believe it was a sixty percent discount on the machines. General Electric delivered the two twenty five and the data at thirty two dartmouth in March of nineteen sixty four and two undergraduate students acquired responsibility for actually programming and implementing time sharing using those two computers. Their names were John. Itchy and Michael Bush so Jon. Hagey acquired responsibility for the two twenty five and Michael. Bush had programming ownership on the demon at thirty so they had to figure out how to make their respective machines communicate with each other and they took ownership of those responsibilities in not the machines were known as McGee and Bush and the young men were known as two twenty five and thirty. The two of them took this terribly. Personally it wasn't John's machine and Mike's Machine it was John and Mike who were not responding and they would stand at opposite ends of the room and yell at each other at the top of their voices so I think that's the soul of that machine as these two college students who are so immersed in their enthusiasm for making time sharing work that they become the machines and their personal efforts actually enable literally hundreds of thousands of not millions of other students to access competing in the nineteen sixty s via basic time sharing once it was implemented and New Hampshire those students. Some of them actually went to explain what they had done to the GE engineers and very soon after that GE started marketing time sharing as best and a feature of its computers. Ge sells off. Its ME frame. Business in one thousand nine hundred seventy but it retains its time sharing business for at least another decade well into the nineteen eighties and continues to provide time sharing service to individuals and businesses around the world Over the course of several
Talking 'Art' with Graphic Designer Adam J. Kurtz
"My name's Adam J Kurtz and ever and calls Me Adam J K and basically. I made graphic designer who became an artist and author so I started with design and now I do a lot of other things that aren't designed Matthew who attended one of your talks. He said that you said something on stage which really connected with him. That you're okay with calling yourself when referring to yourself as an artist and that used to give you an allergic reaction. Can you tell me what that was about? Yeah I mean I think I think the word artist is really scary for a lot of people Because it is so broad and because you know we're we're sort of raised to think about artists like Picasso or something you know art in a museum and so if you're not on a museum you're not an artist but it's really up to all of us to define what art is and for me. I think it is really just sort of creative expression. It's making a feeling An intangible feeling into something tangible it's communicating a feeling that you had in some way It's a response or a reflection to inexperience. Really art is so broad and almost everything is and once I understood that for myself it became really liberating. An artist is just a is the easiest word for someone who makes does a lot of different things Do you do you define that in any way or connected or tie to the idea that if you make art for someone else and somebody else is paying for it. Then that moves you into commercial artor. That's an old term but Like what graphic designers do versus somebody who just has an idea once express something and puts it onto the world? I mean I think it gets dangerous when we start assigning labels and unlike breaking them down further and further because design is interesting. Where design is really sort of halfway between art and craft or art and craft and trade But then also you said commercial art and an even fine art is commercial right because people you might do one painting but it still for sale and then there's sort of this whole like fine art complex economy however you want to describe it where are being sold or artists monographs or the way work travels through museums and is used to bring like everything is commercial like we all have to exist in capitalism. So I find like it's often helpful to not get too hung up on the labels and part of that was was accepting. That artist isn't okay. Label and not being hung up on it and nothing scared of it in. When did you become comfortable with that term to describe yourself as artists? I don't know I guess a couple years ago. Maybe because other people called me in August I and I was like all right. That's fine okay. You didn't punch him in the face when they said that. I have never punched anyone in the face. Okay I have to say for myself. I think maybe it's from my my art school or my design school background and I think one of my professors told me that. And he said something like design is when you solve somebody else's problem and art is when you solve a problem of your conception and that's how I kind of stayed in that box for a really long time and so it wasn't until I think almost two decades in my career my life of anybody had said you're an artist. I would correct them. This is my version of punching them. A face on Magnolia designer. Make things for other people and get paid to do that. An artist like be like you said Picasso and all these other people is not so much the the expression or even how much money they make selling art but the fact that they just go off on their own and they solve a problem they want to communicate a feeling with the world. That isn't other derived its self generated and I put that line pretty hard in the sand but all that changed. I guess a couple of years ago when it started making videos on the Internet. Or It's like this is my form of art. Now you might not think of it as art How I express my feelings and communicate to the world. Yeah I mean I think that is that sort of a case of a well-meaning educator Saying something to you which. I don't disagree with But then you really. You really accepted that as hard fact for a long time and sometimes sometimes that happens with advice right as we. We take advice at face value. Maybe we don't understand the nuance or the context or the specific perspective and and we let that rule us or we let that impact us maybe more than the person who said it in the first place intended and so I don't totally disagree about You know client versus personal work. I think I think there's something there And that's maybe not how I would say it but I don't I don't disagree and so when you tell me that for like two decades you let that guide your understanding of yourself that makes me that makes me. Kinda sad because you've got all the tools and you make stuff for yourself all the time You're often your own client. And so that definition kinda stops working and I almost wonder like what what else would you have made? If you just started doing anything you wanted sooner.
Ross and Carrie Meet Nick Little: Homeopathic Lawsuit Edition
"Hello and welcome Ndo no Ross. And Carrie the show where we don't just report on for in science spirituality and claims of the paranormal but take part ourselves Yup when they make claims we show up. So you don't have to.

Nick little welcome tone arising thank you good to be here. I pleasure you met nick in Las Vegas yes at Sei con and then again here in Los Angeles shortly thereafter and and Nick was giving an excellent talk about a fight against homeopathy. But Nick has a very special position as the sole lawyer I am. CF is legal department. Yes yes this is at now center for inquiry. Yeah we talk about CFI every now and then on the show we all talk about the CFI the investigations group wing of that. I've been involved with for many many years and our first episode was recorded at the old. CF I- office and guess what we are now at the new CFI office which is still in La but now on Temple Street yeah come on by visit. There's going to be lectures all kinds of stuff. And that's at least that the old one that's where Kerry and I I met that's right club a club. I'm now co lead of that Book Club. We still meet every month if anybody's in L. A.. And wants to come talk about. Books is trying to get people to your book. I am absolutely the more the Mary Nick. How long have you been working with just over six years? I think it was six years in September that I started. And how did they lure you in. I'd like to give this sort of great story about how you know. I was led by the heart and emotion to the nonprofit world but I'll to law school I worked for a a big law. Firm represented fortune five hundred companies and received obscene paychecks. So doing and probably would of ended up doing that for the rest of my life because the paychecks are really compelling sure I'm syncing regretted and my phone went bankrupt really ooh God which which kind of happens to law firms occasionally and just imploded and through a combination of very weird circumstances and says I was offered another couple of jobs and failed the conflict check because I've done and then I was offered a job and it turned out that it was the law firm that my brother works for in the London office. And they have anti nepotism world. But he's not your nephew. Indeed you know I got. I need a job. I saw advertised that which was an organization. Confess I had never heard of. I was looking for somebody to though I amendment law which was kind of a passion of mine and so I applied without thinking a lot about that and then the more all right look at the organization I was like this is great. And if I don't get out of the big low world now I am never going to do it right. I'm so I took the plunge and I went off from work and I always say that I much prefer my job now to my old job two days a month when eh the first one came into nightly took it back to run Lensey at the time. I think there's a misprint. No zero somewhere. Oh my goodness misplaced. We should probably describe. CFI A little more. The center for inquiry was founded in nineteen seventy six thereabouts By Paul Kurtz and other leading lights of the critical thinking skeptical humanist Atheist Movement you had Isaac Asimov Carl Sagan. I'm James Randi Lot of those types involved early on in it's kind of existed for many years in two parts. You have your council for secular humanism which is all about sort of that humanist side more the philosophy side and then what was originally the committee for skeptical inquiry of claims of the paranormal S. I I just notice I cop yes okay. Not sure I had ever known instead I I may have messed up the CSI part of it because now it's just CSI it's not to be confused with CSI Miami or the other TV shows but it's the committee for skeptical inquiry. I think the original psycho had a different acronym boot good. Yeah so you came in six years ago now. We really brushed past what sounded like a very juicy. You See story what the Hell happened with your firm and what what were your conflicts of interest. This is the real juicy stuff neck. I wish I mean I wish the the foam went bankrupt Tom if they even have. La Office okay and a fell into the problem of expanding too quickly. Okay and have have a Salt Lake City office. I think which never made any money. Okay Mormons elements and they don't do anything wrong. Yeah and what happened with me on conflicts. lex They totally bizarre was had done seven hours work on a huge class action lawsuit that was representing. I can't even remember if we were representing or defending against the dairy farmers of microbes. Like milk price fixing literally did seven billable hours on this house else. Just something I filled in when I had some slow time And we would have to have got a signature to waive the conflict from every single angled member of the plaintiff's class that was like every thousand dairy amazing.

We got into a lot of different things. I realized that you know uh of that. The Internet was this incredible direct marketing medium that I had to learn about now a lot of the people that I grew up with they didn't feel that way some ended but most either stayed in their niche of of direct mail and print or they retired or they got out of the business or whatever because it was kind of intimidating eminating now it was intimidating to me too but what I did was I. I put myself in places where there was I I joined mastermind groups. I went to events of online marketing so I got myself exposed that couldn't become an expert right away but I got myself self exposed to all of it and then was able to bring that back to my company and then after I left board room and that's the end of the career at this point or the beginning meeting of the new career I went and formed titans marketing after I did an event at boardroom. That was the titans of direct response. It was a tribute events. It's a more yellowstone. The founder of boardroom would passed away in two thousand thirteen and then I did that event and then after the event. I said you know what I think.

Hey Brian Welcome to the show happy to be here. Guys looking forward to this one because I think you guys are. Maybe the most prepared. I've ever seen uh-huh podcasts. Slash like two pages of questions and I'm like I didn't see the other pages that we have written did no no the funny thing is we typically we write up like all sorts of questions and topics and things to go into and typically. We get to like two or three of them. That's how kind kind of deep week goes with me. I just you know once I start talking. I I have a hard time stopping so you can cut me off anytime man. That's that's what we live for for is just good. Greek conversation the whole interview thing that gets boring for us. I Love I love gas. It's great it. I I don't do one myself south but I I've been on so many and it's like you know. Speaking of you know one of the things in my book about list building. It's actually one of the you know. It's a slow oh bill through podcast but it's great bill because people have to listen to you either the either they get sick of you or they like you and they like that's true the person you want on your list so it speaks to a lot of what you read about in overdeliver and just all of your work in general is it's. It's that bond. It's like you talk about customer service for instance about being like such a good brand build relationship builder and podcasting. That's what we're noticing. Thing is the engagement rates late just through the roof and it's such an intimate type of media. I this is this is not anecdotal. This is like real own. I find it very very interesting that I've gone on a lot of podcast. You know to promote my book and you know I gave away. We'll talk about the bill bonuses that I have but you know that that I the people that opt in our our so you know they're really interested in either either the book or something I said so that's really gratifying and then you know I've been watching my list grow steadily but not not huge numbers and as it's grown my open rates have gone up and you know that that's counterintuitive when you're doing like a big list bill bill or you're adding names from facebook or you're building your list in other ways that are not as you know tar not not as pinpointed to podcast and content and it's interesting because it's like you know quality over quantity in and that's the way I like. It and it's been a really really great. list builder do a lot of them. You know because it you know any one podcast you you know one podcast will get six people in one will get you twelve and one will get twenty again. I'm not selling a lot on giving mostly content content so it's a really really gratifying way to build my list and I really appreciate you guys savary and we find that listeners of podcasts. Are you know the absolute best customers. The past leads the best. You know best everything along business spectrum because it's such an intimate medium and we have people that will will tune in and listen to us for an hour at a time twice a week. I mean you can't get better prospects in your business than that and you know people are on the move. It's it's very convenient so yeah really now that we said podcasts are good. Let's do it yeah exactly for the you know the handful of folks not that many any that don't know you. I mean you have a very interesting story directing marketing all the way but you're you're just so tapped in with some of the and the best experts out there in marketing ad books and you do a lot of speeches and a lot of just so much content and you literally literally overdeliver in so many ways. That's why it's perfect for the podcast here but give us like a little back story and we'll touch on the umpiring as part of that story says well. I'll give you give you forty. Forty years in three minutes survey nailed. I I I started. I A bargain was my second job out of college. I went there thinking I thinking I ended up being writer editor or something like that but the job job got was enlists management and for those of you who don't know list management is it's you know basically a boardroom has a newsletter that doesn't take advertising so. I was representing our listen the marketplace they were great lists. I mean everybody in direct mail at the time would use them so I got exposure sure to all of these incredible mailers all over the place not just magazines and newsletters but catalogs and fundraisers so I got an incredible indoctrination to the to the direct marketing industry through our lists and at the same time boardroom had had the best consultants and copywriters and all of that so as my as I went on in the list management area I started getting involved in marketing and I I had access to these amazing consultants now. Most of them were older. I always say that too many of my mentors whereas get because you know when you are twenty and thirty years old and all of your your consultants and copywriters and a lot of them are in their sixties and seventies you know when you're sixty and I'm sixty now. not a lot of them are around now. A lot of them are still around. Thank goodness but I think that that was an incredible credible. I mean I just I. I'm fortunate to being an entrepreneurial company. I didn't have to start it. I became an equity partner so I did have have a lot of the responsibilities but I didn't have to do the bootstrap thing and then I just I was. I was a business grower so boardroom. During my time Nair from nineteen eighty one to two thousand fifteen we went from you know five million or ten million dollars to one hundred fifty seven million then back down again but it was a height of two hundred one hundred fifty seven million in two thousand five and it was all direct marketing and so the early part of my career was you know there was no internet so it was all like very finite media it was direct mail it was TV radio radio but just.
