"Yeah, crime is up everywhere, man. Meghan Markle and prince Harry are scared. And their neighborhood. They're leaving their $14 million montecito home. There's no crime in montecito.

People say the couple have, well, their current sprawling home doesn't properly accommodate them. Because they're a family of four.

There's a nearby country club, there's a tennis court, a golf club, almost 30 miles of horse track riding trails, because all the 10% of the community owned horses there.

Who Is Pastor John Amanchukwu?
"Take a couple of minutes to talk about how you got to be pastor John. So before we go further with the rest of the questions I want to ask you, what we're going to do about it also why you wrote your book a race and what's happened to manhood in the black community in America. Tell us a little bit about who John ammon chuku is. Where you came from, why you're doing what you do today, and also let's start with, I love this. What amund chukwu means? Yeah, so my full name is John, kanayo chukwu, I'm in chukwu. And kanaya chuk remains I will keep trusting and pleading in God, and I'm in chuck will means I know God. And I'm proud to say I say this unabashedly that I am born again. Christ is my savior. I have not been bludgeoned by society to the point that I'm ashamed that I am a believer. You know, there is an attack on Christianity today. We see it from the left. There are tools, there are mechanisms that they are using, but I'm not ashamed. At the age of 19, I gave my life to Christ, I'm one of those who came to God early and often. And I kind of had things together, but by the age of 12, I went through puberty. And so, you know, as every young man battles and struggles with his desires, I continue with the same thing, but at the age of 19, I gave my life to Christ and the lord saved me. And from their own, I had a propensity to lean towards the things of God. And so I found myself during my sophomore year in college, pulling young men into the racquetball room at NC foot at NC states football stadium, calling them to God, calling them towards prayer and on Tuesday nights, I led a Bible study. And so I've been doing this now for about 19 years and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I believe that pastors are significant. I believe today that pastors oftentimes are using the spirit of cowardice, which is not a fruit of the spirit, but we need more pastors to preach and to teach and to make planes what CNN and MSNBC seeks to make cloudy.
School Board Candidate: 'It's Never Okay to Misgender a Child'
"My earlobes were tingly yesterday when I heard this at the school board thing. This is all right, let's play the audio here. This is the guy running for school board who is all over the whole gender pronoun stuff. You community. And I'm proud of that. I'm proud of the life I have and the life that I've built with my husband and my sons. I'm proud of my Friends and others. And that was one at one time not a possibility. Today, as I would want to say that every child that walks into my classroom needs to feel like they are comfortable that they are cared for that they are respected and their personal human dignity is respected by everyone in that room. And I would say that if a person has an objection, then they just don't need to speak to that child. Because it is never okay to misgender a trans child. It is never okay to miss pronoun them intentionally because that person is deserving of their own dignity, their own human respect. That relationship between child and parent that is being fostered is just as important as that other relationship with the family that maybe sees things differently. All right, and what you didn't hear because the first part got chopped off the guy says he's a member of the LGBT community. And that's all well and good. But the issue now goes to whether or not he is, he wants to use his position on the school board to advance an agenda where if you don't want to call and you heard him say this, that if you, if you've got little Sally and she says no, you've got to call me by he him or Cesar or whack a doodle this or whack a doodle that. If you don't do that, then all of a sudden you've got the problem and you do not have a right to address that child.
Stephen Miller: Biden Is Not 'Cognitively Present' as President
"Last night, former senior adviser to Trump, Stephen Miller, was on newsmax's Eric bolling show. Here's cut two. Listen to Steven Miller, what he accurately pointed out. And I want to play for you his argument and then I want to tell you ask you to call and tell me whether you agree or disagree with Stephen Miller's assessment. The President Biden is not cognitively present. He does not have the mental capacity to serve as the president of the United States of America. If he was in a nursing home, he would be in the assisted living section, not the area where people are in a retirement community who are living their own lives and who are making their own decisions. Maybe they just have a little bit of help when they need it. He would be in the round the clock care section for someone who forgets who they are, where they are, what they're doing, who's alive, who's dead, how to take care of themselves. He is completely cognitively diminished and deteriorated. So this is a terrifying situation. And of course, we see the results. We see the results all the time. The world is more violent, more dangerous, more unstable than ever before.
Tudor Dixon: Committed to End CRT, Implicit Bias Training in Michigan
"Can you commit to us in the audience that you are going to look at this CRT stuff I don't care what they call it They play the euphemisms games Whatever it is any kind of racial discrimination training and sexualization of kids and get that out of there A tree and root and rip it out We need people like you to do it Absolutely That is definitely going to happen And over and above that not just for kids we have a governor who failed and our minority communities when she had to protect them against COVID-19 And because of her failure she blamed the medical community And then she implemented implicit bias training for everyone in the medical community So all of our doctors and nurses even our dentists have to take this to get re licensed every time Imagine an implicit bias Meaning it doesn't matter what you do No matter how well you treat people it doesn't matter You are implicitly a race I can not think of a dumber more divisive more grotesque thing to do to divide faithful God fearing Americans and to tell them no matter what they do or how they treat people their racist

Jordan Peterson Breaks Down Over Olivia Wilde's 'Insane' Comments
"Know the Canadian psychologist, the bestselling author, Jordan Peterson, it became very emotional in an interview with Piers Morgan when he was asked to respond to the Hollywood director, Olivia Wilde, apparently using him as the inspiration for the villain and her new film don't worry darling, the film that's getting more pressed than any film in the history of the world. So he's been interviewed by Piers Morgan. On his Fox nation, Fox nation show, and he's asked about the comments that she made earlier this month. While she was promoting this movie, like crazy and Olivia Wilde said that this sinister character, played by Chris Pine, who, by the way, looks like a female tennis star from the 80s, with his blond hair that flips up in the back, Chris Pine, get rid of that hair, man. Come on, bro, you're a man. What are you doing? You look like Chrissy Everett. It's so bad. So Olivia Wilde said that this character played by Chris wild was based on Jordan Peterson. She said, we based this character on this insane man, Jordan Peterson, who is this pseudo intellectual hero to the incel community. You know what incels are? Incels are guys that are part of the online community who consider themselves unable to get a girl. They consider unable to attract women sexually, you know, some of them they say have views that are hostile toward women and you know, they're just losers, basically. And for some reason, they think that she thinks that Jordan Peterson is the leader of all these men, which is ridiculous, she said, these men are basically disenfranchised and mostly white men, of course, mention white because how dare you even mention a black man doing something bad, you can't do that. I mean, at this point, your career, how could you talk badly about a black man just keep blaming white men? It's so easy. And no one's gonna get mad at you. You can say white men are pieces of shit, white men want to have sex with their mothers, white men are whatever you wanna say. The vast media will never get mad at you. You say one thing wrong about a black man, you're done, you're finished, you're canceled. So go ahead, kick us around. Livia, wild

Fentanyl Crisis Continues to Ravage US Communities
"Can you talk to us more about this influx of fentanyl because people are now making fentanyl look like candy and it just seems like it's one of the drug of choices to bring over into our country. Can you talk about a little bit about what border patrol is seeing when it comes to the influx of fentanyl? No, definitely. It's crazy the amount that's kept across. And a lot of it is because of the fact that agents are getting put in other positions, administrative roles instead of where they would be on the line. And it happens directly because, you know, there's so many individuals that are coming across. You see, you see it in Texas, right? This is where a lot of the issues are. Do you see a lot of the groups that are coming across in Texas, they're turning themselves in, agents are now having to transport them, they're having to process many times if they're injured, they're having to take it to the hospital and they do hospital watches. But that takes them away from the areas that they're supposed to be patrolling the border or down the amount of officers that are able to be out there working. So that's what causes a lot of these issues constantly and the drug cartels, they know exactly what they're doing. They've been doing it for a long time.
What Is the Waffle House Index?
"This is fascinating. So the weather guessers, they rely on the national hurricane center for all their Intel. But it turns out that fema actually checks in with waffle House, they've got this massive system in place. It's called the waffle House index. Ben dieter, I know you're from what Pennsylvania, from the Amish country, a Pennsylvania. That's right. But they have waffle House. So you guys have a waffle House. Do you know what I'm talking about? Yeah. All right, have you been to the waffle House? No. You need to have a gun if you do. You've told me about it. It's always good to be prepared because there's always a fight going down at the waffle House. But the food is delicious. And they had the waffles and the hash browns and the whatnot. I'm blown away in trying to make the link between hurricane Ian and waffles. So here's the deal. Waffle House is open 24/7. It doesn't matter what's happening. 24/7. So they've got an index, and this is somewhat an informal metric, but the company uses this to figure out how bad things are in that community. So for example, if the storm comes and waffle House is serving their full menu, that means typically there's no or little damage and they've got full power. So that's green. So that's green. Next on the waffle House index is yellow. That means you may not be able to get, you know, the sausage patties, or the bacon, or the toast. They don't have biscuits at waffle House. I never could understand that, but they got toast. That means that maybe the powers a little spotty, there are some outages, and they may not have a lot of food supplies. That's yellow. Now red is the apocalypse. That means the waffle House is completely closed. And a fema says that they actually use this to determine how bad the situation is in a town. So
School athletic trainer charged with sex assault of 10 girls

Do American Mayors Want More Migrants?
"There's a paragraph in your story. In some communities where jobs are going unfilled, people have welcomed the influx of migrants looking for work, which communities, Michael share. Well, I'll give you an example. I did a bunch of stories when the Afghan refugees came when the President Biden pulled out of Afghanistan pulled out of Kabul. I traveled to Fremont, California, which has a little community called little Afghan where lots of Afghan folks have resided for years. That's one place where everyone I talked to said, my God, we need these people because we can't hire restaurants or closing because they can't get enough workers to staff them. Fargo North Dakota is in other place where I almost went. I didn't have a chance to actually go, but talk to people in Fargo. This was last summer, so a year ago, but the look, the labor market is incredibly tight. That doesn't mean that it is the same everywhere across the country. But if you look at where the unemployment rate is and where help wanted ads are, I think it is fair to say that even in some Republican communities, even places with Republican mayors, they are desperate for workers.
Netflix Is Mishandling the Jeffrey Dahmer Series With the LGBTQ Crowd
"I'm still watching the Netflix series on Jeffrey Dahmer and I love it. It's crazy. When I watched this, I don't even care that Jeffrey Dahmer's victims were gay men. He went after gay men because he was gay, or at least had a predilection to gay men. And now Netflix went and did a very stupid thing. Very stupid. In R&B woke, in order to make everybody think we know we got it, we get what's going on. They use the LGBTQ ten on this series as if, you know, well, we want to let gay people know this is an LGBTQ series. Now it's not. It's about a man who murdered and cannibalized people. Why wouldn't Netflix think, oh, yes, let's let the LGBTQ community know that we've got this show. Why would they tag the Jeffrey Dahmer documentary or series LGBTQ? It's so stupid. But they had to be politically correct. Let's let the clear community know we have this show and they can watch it. But if you're gay, imagine clicking on the LGBTQ category. And this is the series they suggest you watch, why? Why wouldn't it let's think that the queer community wants to watch this because he kills and eats queers. It's so stupid.
Naomi Wolf Exposes the 'Great, Great Evil' of the Media
"So Naomi, you're saying things that are difficult to comprehend. But let's just continue to go through it. You use the word aside. Can you say that the BBC and NPR and all of these others whom we would ordinarily trust on the basics, you know? On the basics, they reported, they reported that the queen died and we don't say, well, they always lie. We just assume that that's their job is to report. But they have ceased to do that. And now we find out you find out that they were paid, but paid by whom. Well, people and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation directly in many, many cases. But also with the cares act, that was a $1 billion of our taxpayer money and millions of it went to buying up what were called trusted messengers, community groups, small news outlets, local synagogues, and churches, and I've got a filmmaker working on the Jehovah's Witnesses. Being influenced in this direction as well, buying up little arts organizations. All the way down to the most local level to speak with a unified voice to exclude people who challenged the narrative that everyone had to be vaccinated. So a great deal of money has gone into basically buying up our civil society institutions and our media to suppress this information. And lastly, big tech is invested in these outcomes and the bodies of others explains exactly how and an America first legal foia and also subsequent lawsuit by the attorney general of Missouri and the attorney general of Louisiana showed as I mentioned that CDC and The White House were colluding directly with Twitter and Facebook to silence critics like me who were saying truthful things.
Job Creators Network's Alfredo Ortiz Describes His New Business Plan
"Us right now is Alfredo Ortiz, who is the mastermind and the driving force behind job creators network. Alfredo, welcome to the program. Hey, Charlie. Great to see you. Excited to be on the program. First time. Yeah, thank you. So Alfredo, tell us about your new plan. The American small business prosperity plan. Yeah, absolutely, Charlie. Well, your intro was right on though. I mean, small businesses in this country are the heartbeat of our communities or the heartbeat of our country. And without small businesses, we have no country. I mean, when you think about 30 million small business owners out there complain about 60 million people. So you're talking to pool about 90 million hardworking Americans that are really dependent on the success or failure of small business. And frankly, you know, this administration has done absolutely nothing to try to help them. In fact, has done everything possible to try to hurt them. We actually call it the war on small business Charlie, because that's exactly what they did from day one. And in terms of if you look at what the policies of the Biden administration have done in terms of inflation, you know, we're now in the middle of a recession. You've got the labor force issues, supply chain issues. Everything has been hurting our small businesses and really there's no relief in sight coming from this administration. And that's why I try to put together this 8 point plan working with Newt Gingrich on its release last week. And so we're really excited about the support that we've gotten. I'm going to just list out the quick 8 points because we try to keep it as simple as we could, Charlie. So that folks could actually focus and understand what we're trying to do. The first one, though, the most important one is really to make the tax cuts permanent from the tax and jobs act, especially when it comes to the small business provisions that were included in there. The second one is to really launch and unleash domestic energy production again. Charlie, you and I have both been talking about this since day one administration, but every single thing that's bad right now, we can trace all the way back to that fateful day. The first day of this administration, when he launched basically his attack on domestic energy production, and all the inflation, supply chain issues, everything we're seeing really comes back to that day. So
"l b j q community" Discussed on The Brown Girls Guide to Politics
"Be thoughtful about the change that you seek to make. And then put your mind towards it, putting all the pieces in place that will allow for that thing to manifest itself. When I serve at the BTG, almost four years ago now, I want it for women of color to know the various entry points into politics. For me, I've been lucky to work on campaigns, at political committees, and presidential administrations. And we'll be celebrating 6 years at emerge in 2022. When I help found immersion Nevada, a never envisioned myself working for the organization. Let alone being the national president. But throughout my career, I was always thoughtful about where I felt I could best fulfill my political passions and do it while having joy. And when I thought about it, it always came back to ensuring that other women of color felt seen, heard, and had opportunities. So in conclusion, take time to think about how you can best be of service in a way that fulfills you, helps your community and lets you play trails for others to follow.

"l b j q community" Discussed on Empowered AF
"Know. I'm gonna be like complete dichotomy to this. I was very isolated before joining this group on. I didn't just stagnating growth almost like reverted in growth from where i had been a younger man. And you find yourself kind of detaching from people community and so when i found myself in the shit of it when my wife said she didn't want to be buried in you know i didn't know what to do i didn't know where to turn and so going out and seeking information turned into discovering the empowerment community and it just resonated so hard with me and then once i became a part of it you kind of got to see the value that community brings to you and it pushes you. It helps it. Holds you accountable. You know you're no longer responsible for yourself but you're responsible to another group of men that are also sharing with you the same stuff that you're going through. You're not alone in this. You don't have to be isolated anymore. And it motivates you to you go to seek different communities as well to be a part of. Because that's your responsibility is being a reader for yourself. You know being a role model for your children it resonates and that's what i've seen community change with with me as i joined in gone through this process. Awesome man because isolation is one of those things that men just that it's almost like that's our default right. It wouldn't when push comes to shove even when we're amongst other men we will still isolate ourselves. We will still wear that poser. Hat like everything's good. Life is great and especially. I don't know all of you guys here but for someone like myself who comes from a faith background and kenya. Faith background that was even harder. Because i felt like as i was going through my transition i felt rejected by the church. I felt very rejected by the christian people around me not that they didn't want to be apart not that didn't want to help in. This isn't a bashing of them. But they are ill equipped to handle this type of situation and especially when you have like friends and church where the friends are the friends with you and your wife. Now they feel conflicted. We don't want to take a side so we backup and so the people that you thought were your closest allies. End up being the people who don't know what to do and they dropped their weapons and they're like. Hey man you're going to have to fight this on your own. And that was so disheartening for me and that was literally one of the main reasons i started. Power man was. Because i did not want other men to go through what i went through by myself. Or what i deemed as being by myself. Obviously there's a faith component. I had god those things but there is something special and something really supernatural about having other men or going through what you're going through not to just go through as you both also said to grow through what you're going through and to call you up to a higher level in that we talk about good and let's be honest in church church that the the body of building and those people there's often align judgement so it's not necessarily that church that christ talked about. It's that building down the street where there's a lot of judge sell I i appreciate where you're coming from on that. End the journey that we start to make it into a point Demand start to come out with their faith or lack thereof within this community to which is a beautiful thing for me to see as a somebody who values my face. And i think one of the biggest things that everybody has said is rate within our community and within inking. You what you're looking for is to get hit right and our like this story. Because i i think a month into my coaching. When i came on board and i remember his first day like it was yesterday in a guy in the corner. He'd turn on his camera. He'd turn off his camera turn off on his camera. He turn off his camera so on my calls. Everybody's gotta share especially when it's your first day i remember calling kevin forward and just bringing him up and that was the day we saw k talk really form you know. He came at the sadness he came with his. You know his hurt and everything. We showed within our community that. Hey we're all here were here. Listen we're here to grow and we want you to be here. We're not gonna let you sit back there and feel sorry for yourself. We're not gonna let you do that anymore. Vertically ford and really become part of this unity great today out on the same thing a couple of weeks later you could just you know adams lost a lot of weight. And he was a little bit. Chubbier uses guy. That was kind of just sitting back. And you know this week adamant now every single day adam sharon and it's the same thing because as you get to grow through this you become part of the community not only disturb your story bring other guys up with you and i think that's the biggest part of community that's missed outside of of stuff that we do is oh you just be who you are and nobody gonna call you under shit or call you forward and that's kind of what we're talking about you know become topdog and i woven hockey. I'm not the top though. I'm not on the number two guy and that guy is so much more alert but young guys still have tons of learn but i knew my role there and i call it the people how other people call me out and it's great apartment seemed ideal but today i'm sure with who i am and i'm confident and you put it out there that hey i want feedback. Please give me feedback. I get to grow through that feedback and is not going to hurt my feelings and at the same time we teach. And i'm going to say this as an manning coach now. A way to provide that feedback away to ask for permission to give that feedback. Not just some random this down your throat. It's hey you wanna place where you can receive some feedback on what you just said. You know nine times out of ten thousand times dan. It's gonna be yet sometimes. It's no good guys dealing with a lot of emotion that he needs to process through so netra. That community comes in to support everything in. Hey celia against you hear all those yet. it's funny. We did this a while back in our facebook group where i did the difference between the. What's the difference between a divorce support group in a men's empowerment group and it was like there's a there's a world of difference because you can have basic common unity with someone or you can have something that's a little bit deeper and sharing go beyond that no one. I'm going to talk about these three levels community in a second but it reminds me of the saying that i used to hear back in the day. Which is you. show me your friends. i'll show your future and it's very much even scientific proof that says that you will financially make within eighty percent of your five closest friends like like literally your salary your how much money you make will be within eighty percent of your closest friends because they have the most influence impact on you and that makes it challenging when you're in business when you're not you're when you're a business owner it makes it challenging and i know that a lot of guys that are listening. Podcasts are in that boat where you're financially successful and you're listening to this podcast. You're like man. I want to be a part of the strike. But i get in the free facebook group and i see guys that aren't on the same level of me and look it's not just about financial. It is about emotional as well. And there's an emotional intelligence that comes with that we are all trying to grow through. But if you're in that boat we're here to tell you that we're gonna pull you up to a higher level regardless of your financial wellbeing regardless of your emotional wellbeing if you decide to join and get a part of a group of guys that are different level so i want to do on a breakdown basic mid-tier in advanced so a basic group or what i call. Basic community is a basic common units. You one or two things that are in common unity with each other Adam you did not have much of anything but did you at least have one basic.

She mentioned but you mentioned a study that they're apparently it lasts even three hours after you switch the tv off now. Let's go back to community. You're not building community while you sit in front of tv. You're not building connections one on one when you sitting on your couch is a comfortable inconvenient at times absolutely yes. Go out there. Meet people talk to them. Actually one could think something really main. I'm not saying this is the case. It's just an inspirational thought spark. Maybe for you what happened over the past year and a half. We were divided. Don't talk to. Anyone believes that everyone could be danger. Community was just cut off. And there's so many states even here in the us where they did not have any measures and people survive. Just fine do your research. And then as a community to your research rethink. What's good for you. What fits you there in that region where you live of. Course when you're in alaska you have different geographics and you also have different weather than here.

And i'm not saying believe me. I say you can listen to me what you like. Go ahead and do your own research. Don't believe me go and look it up. Make your own thoughts. I want to inspire people to start thinking again because we were born with a brain and so we are brain owners. Let's become brain us otherwise we are giving too much power way.

Yeah that's my humble intention. That's exactly the kind of community. I would like to leave and i have to say you've said so.

Do your research all i want to do is to inspire you heaven. Look if not then. Listen to what i have to say what i collected but tell a vision television. Tell lie vision when we watch it often enough it becomes almost reality for us. Let's have a look at television. Tell lie vision when we look at it. Long enough often enough. Any lie will be believable. You can very much follow it. What happened over the past one year there were pictures and short videos sent from around the world that were five years old ten years old. And there's proof because there's with date in a magazine wagon c. o. How so they used that. Already in. Twenty fifteen i wonder what does it show now so switch. Tv off more often. Why because there are studies out there. What it does it makes you afraid therefore increases your stress levels. It makes you lonely. It makes you insecure. Makes you dependent and makes you in different now. There is a very specific. Study where it shows clearly that within thirty seconds of watching tv so actually in the frontal lobe.

I haven't been to see many of them at all. But when i at the size of the city i'm living in it's tiny compared to some of the cities in the world and i could see how community could start be lost if we not mindful about us very easily and especially through the division.

"We must go back this crisis. The global crisis has a great chance with an and i know they're people suffering around the globe and i don't even want to mention to what degree because it's devastating in some cases and in some areas on a big scale. But we need one another. I believe a human being is not born and is not meant to be alone. Does it feel good to take time out and to take care of my own mental hygiene and my own self my inner self my in a world absolutely yes. Nevertheless communities very important not only in crisis. It's beautiful when we have good things to share. I believe life is much richer when shared there is this meam circling around on the internet. Where they say. Oh you can get two million dollars but you need to go on an island for two years no internet and you will be all by yourself and when you look at the statistics. No one wants it so that shows us also very clearly that it's not the money that people are after it's what they can do and the freedom the money they would give them regarding their time so actually when we have deeper look. It's not the money we're after the freedom. It may give us when we handle it. Well that's also. I think very important when it comes to community. Now i'd like to really go back to the roots. The island model. I do not need to make advertisement for this book. This book is going. Its own way. I wrote it i authored. That's all. I have to do with the book but truly with that tiny book. Because it's really not very big. You can read it in an hour and a half or maybe two hours so you can listen to it as an audiobook in an hour and a half that principle. The island model makes it so clear how we can establish healthy community. Why because there is no matter where you come from. There's no matter where you going. It does not matter what pigmentation count is in new skin or your eyes. How tall you are. What's your gender. What your sexual orientation. What your faith. What's your religious orientation. What is your likes dislikes in life we humans and when we go to the bottom of it to the common denominator community becomes possible again. We must stop the division and the separation. This crisis shows very clearly no matter what caused the crisis we will find out. Not we like kathy ni- but we as human family we will find out what's all behind that because things come to the surface we learn more about it. Every day we learn about well actually immunology we learn about virology we learn about epidemiology and so forth and all we need to do is to be open and go online and search go to a library and search for evidence and you will find plenty of it without trusting me trusting the government. No make your own mind up very important. We must learn to make our own opinion and our own minds up again. That's also basics for community now another aspect of getting back to community and rebuilding community in a better way than it was ever before if we can if we're capable off. I truly believe in humans and i believe in the good in humans. We are so depending on the global connection. What i mean by that you sit online. You don't even leave the house anymore.

"Where they could. And that is very important in days of peace and in days of turmoil when it comes from nature or elsewhere so community is very important. And i do believe that. Somehow in our societies especially the western societies we almost unlearn. How healthy community can function. And what are the ingredients. And what can we do to rebuild that or reestablish community in the first place and of course when we establish something. I always suggest and i rarely use the generalization of always but in this case i do generated in healthy ways and created in healthy ways yeah. I'm so glad that you mentioned all. I sings dicey. Because that's exactly where i'd like this podcast to guard but i i want she touched on what you just said. You gave some really great examples of when communities have come together in across this. And i'm lucky enough to have also been brought up in a town where community came together like that and it is amazing to see and does alleviate. I think a huge portion of what would have been much much harder and today i also want to urge people out there like you said at the end of those examples to do this every day. Not just win. Wear in little crosses. Ob crosses because that is when you see it the most and you perhaps take mice notice of it but it's the every day acts of community and neighbors ship that really can change people's lives and can i think make a much better environment for a better mental hygiene within those communities to especially when there is something going on worldwide like right now we are in extraordinary times so i suppose we are in across but my point was for us to be able to help people do this in their daily lives. Because i think it's a super important component of living your best life is having a great community being involved in a great community and having that nurture you and you do the same with them. I very much agree with you. Well i'd like to bring up an example. That might be a little bit of a stretch. But i think it is a very good example to see how it can function when we look at native tribes in south america. I mentioned those. Because i gain knowledge of some personally so this is first hand information. It's not. I heard it somewhere. I saw it somewhere. Someone told me. I read it here. I watched it on national geographic snow. So this is. I handed down information that in these communities there many generations lived together. No one is outcast and the beauty of it is that no matter the age of the youngsters. They learn from the elderly no matter their age which then on the other hand it keeps the elderly young at heart and it helps develop wise youngsters so we have somewhat forgotten this in the western civilization. I count myself in it. Because i live in a western civilization without judging it and when i look around the elderly are sent away to elderly homes or retirement homes and the youngsters than have big problems. Okay so how do elderly at all behave. Because they don't have role models. So.

Hopefully that will carry through the whole day and you know you might come back to it because you want to juice and that kind of energy that you might you might get in and i think i think it's worth pointing out. You are wearing a pink hat minutes right there. We were on wednesdays with pink violent. Jackie which is the pallet at uc on the installation. Today i mean you talk about people maybe coming back hoping drawn back to and being uplifted by it you gotta residency here for two years. What do you hope to sort of. Start to bring out of that local community over that two years. What do you hope you can offer them. I mean this initial steps clearly uplifting but what else are you hoping to do with your designed for the community here tournaments a really special place. Strong from links in tottenham. What is happening is really special. Only for the communicable suspended for the younger community. Who are going to be. The future face of tottenham. I think for me having my work on. Kingston hoarding hopefully inspired generation of artists architects designers. Because what's been built with designed by architects designers. They're of the greatest vision. But also i just one inspiring or young kids who wanna be future architects or designers and let them know you know it's possible it's vita but also it's about trying to give the people that live in tottenham sense of pride and ownership of the community because i think kind of barra who have something that maybe in may not be seen as positive. I mean if they're proud of people are gonna wanna come down and log. Abc peace and tottenham so people have this sense of pride. I've got this installation. And it's mine and i think to try and do is when i create work is meaningless belongs to the communities overtime mitchell's the people become fabric of the artwork.

You know twenty twenty s weird here. We are at an event. And you know. I'm just doing it from this desk. Where i kinda do everything so honored to be here my friend. Well it's an honor to have you clint. So let's get into it. I tell us just a little bit about yourself. I'm a lifelong you. John for what that's worth. I don't know that people care about that too much i sure. Do i have four children. I'm married. I live in southern utah. County i believe utah counties better than salt lake county for those watching. I will a non just getting. I don't care. And yeah. I started my career. I went to Actually owned a deli for while when i was super yang school got a journalism degree. Recommend anyone do that kind of pointless. Degree and i worked at a software development firm with a couple of buddies where we help build startups early stage products and then and then inside of that Software development firm we launched a little blog called beehive startups which became a pretty big community platform. And then You know more recently over the past five six years. I've been the executive director of silicon slopes which is a five one c three nonprofit. And we put that together. After you know behi- startups two guys. Traction and josh james and i started talking and then we started talking to ryan. Smith is to ceo quality and erin stoddard ceo plural. Cy and dave elkton. Who was the ceo of inside sales at the time about what it would mean to bring the community all underneath one umbrella. So here we are in you guys have done a great job with that So tell me about the silken slopes model. Clint while the consults model i believe is a little bit different than other profit models. I think as you look at it. And i think it applies to any business not just nonprofits because i don't know that we run. It necessarily even like a nonprofit to be honest with you although have being a five one. C three is important to us and there are aspects of it. That are very nonprofit. -i the silicon psalms model. I think a lot of people. If you're just a part of the tech scene or you're not part of utah in particular you may view it as like another chamber of commerce almost that kind of advocates for various tech issues Behind closed doors and has kind of these Events that you have to pay to go to and you can only attend if you remember anything like that was actually exact opposite of all of that We want it to be open and accessible to wall Everyone who wants to be a part of the community we believe has every right to be a part in community and should be part of the consultants community and so given that that was a stance that we took early on that we wanted the organization to be open accessible to all we landed on this model. The i believe many of the people who are watching would be interested in in particular as it pertains to how do you build a community around your brand. How do you build a community around a certain topic. And how do you do in a way. That's actually authentic and doesn't come across as though it's authentic but is indeed authentic and so what. We landed on his three buzzwords. To be honest with you billy And so what we say is silicon slopes five one c three nonprofit that empowers utah startup tech community to learn connect and serve. And when you hear learn connect are you likely like most people say those three words who cares right. And you know there's truth to that even but what's behind those for us and what we've built around these three words in these three pillars within our organization is the entire reason why we've seen any success if we seen any at all and i believe it's The way communities should be bill. Just my own opinion. And so i'll go through what each of these Three pillars mean to us as an organization and those watching kind of think about how they could apply at least some of these aspects within their own companies organizations so the first is learnt right And when we say learn silicon slopes what we're talking about is stories and what we're talking about is media and what we're talking about is Letting the community know what's happening and that's critical and i'm gonna talk Probably go pretty deep on stories Here a little bit later but when we say learn it's silicon slopes what we mean. Is we want you to know everything happening within the silicon silicon slopes community. And we want you to have plenty of resources available to you. It's not just news. Although that's that's a very big piece of it it's not just media and it's not just stories but it's also helping and empowering people to learn how to be better within the industry Better within their particular profession

Thank you for inviting me. . Well, , we really excited to have you here because we want to talk about the stigma of mental health in the Christian and Asian communities. . So let's jump right in why is there stigma mental health in many Christian circles? ? This is an area where I'm very familiar I grew up. . My father was a Presbyterian minister, , from Korea, , as first generation Korean. . Moving here to the United States and I was born here. . So I'm a US barring korean-american. . So I got to see just what it's like to grow up in a church actually Korean church I believe that the stigma comes from misconceptions, , a lot of misconceptions about healing in general general healing of physical problems and especially mental healing. . So for example, , maybe seventeen hundreds, , right? ? Where severe mental illness just gets to frame. . Yeah where they're having nations and bizarre behaviors that used to be looked upon as demon possessed, , and so from those generations and centuries until now it's still has kinda trickled to this modern day of if you have a mental illness and you can't quote unquote, , shake it off that something's wrong with you spiritually, , I'm reminded of the Salem witch trials. . And Twenty, , the majority of people believe that was just an extreme overreaction based on on so many factors but fear being primary one, , and now here we are in twenty twenty and I I recognize that that we're not burning anybody at the stake but it's interesting to me that that we're allowing sort of this misinformation or there's misconception and this fear of mental illness Dr, , are thinking when the. . Average person in two thousand, , twenty completely understands that letting fear and misinformation drive are thinking all the way back in. Salem . wasn't overreach an overreaction. . It feels like the same thing just with less dire consequences except of course, , if if you're a person living with mental illness or mental health issues and you don't get the treatment and support that you need to death is a very real possibility. . Right I, , totally agree. . It's just a different form now, , just more maybe acceptable form today how people are being viewed or treated whenever they're struggling, , and then that causes people to not share their struggles. . Do you feel that the average Christian feels that they can't seek help because it salt their faith or is it deeper than that? ? Not about insulting their own faith, , it's about like if I help. . And I find out that I really have a diagnosis or I'm really experiencing something real. . then. . That's GonNa to prove that I am not a person of true faith or my faith is weaker than others and they're very fearful to discover that sometime. . So there's a great deal of denial and a great deal of I can just beat this with my faith. . All I have to do is pray or all I have to do is go to more worship services. . So I think those are the reasons why rather than a direct insult to the faith professionally, , I would say why there's a stigma there's such minimal knowledge ignorance about physiology and medical background and even psychology even the entire field of psychology there is another misconception. . Just based on the fear that that is not of God and they think that psychologists or even the theorists of the past are not aligned with God and they just kind of alienate them or marginalized them as opposite of God or atheists, , and so I found that very intriguing because I grew up even I think my own dad would talk about Freud or other famous theorists not there of the devil but like they're influenced maybe and did not trust psychology and maybe people don't even try to go to a psychologist for fear that Oh they're going to change me and if they changed me, , I'm not going to believe in God. . I might talking really extremely in terms of like what the thinking but deep down inside there is so much fear in going to a psychologist. . They don't know that these are actual neurologically based struggles. . For example, , major depression severe anxiety disorders polars your friend. . Yeah. . These are disorders of neural transmitter imbalances. . And they can be treated. . On the other hand on the spiritual level, , I'm a firm believer that many have inaccurate standing about what we call the Gospel or the good news. . They don't know the message of the Bible I think they misconstrue so many things and just pick and choose what they think the doctrines. . And then apply it to certain things. . For example, , have you ever heard of the word legalism? ? legalism is it term <hes> based on the law? ? So example, , there are laws of God or there's these traditional laws interpreted as laws of God, , and you must obey them, , and that's the only way to please God or get blessings. . And therefore, , if you don't, , you may get punished if the mental health issue is considered as a punishment than they may be experiencing Oh, , I must be punished. . This must be a consequence of a pass wrongdoing. . So it's totally, , it's the misconception starts to

"l b j q community" Discussed on Reinvention Radio
"Now I would be looking at and it'd be with these influencers in order but that's one of the reasons were partners in Tony Robbins. They're so much bigger than US as a company more up and recognition in the industry that by promoting their products. We bring a whole lot of New People in. That would've never paid attention us. But now they are because they've author us and we have an opportunity to continue to develop relationships with those people him. And just so. We're clear here because there's a lot of people who don't really get like it seem kinda pie in the sky like WanNa put some real numbers around the so so when you say you. Placed A in his launch is basically means that you drove people that knew specific on numbers. I decided in India but I can speak from the whole launch. And how it yet your But yeah that's that's basically the number so like four hundred fifty thousand people wrench which is up double from last year The sales role softer but still pretty solid twenty million plus sales which lasted thirty two million little last. But you know it is what it is given the climate the environment Nothing we can really do about that. People are afraid they're not buying Lisa personal shock and awe thing. I think also come back soon. People are buying on my stuff right now so I'm not super worried But we are seeing a little bit of a blip on the radar and it happens every once in a while. There's nothing you can do about it. It's a it's a black swan event. Nobody could have predicted that a virus come out of a bat and half China and then take over the whole world for our long so now we're in unprecedented times but it requires you to not fold up and say oh I'm GonNa just lay down. I requires you to look at things from a new perspective. Into how can I value? How can I help in this situation? so so to that. And if you're doing in Tony Robbins here. You know we're talking about twenty million in revenue than it's basically they put in about ten thousand new customers but I'm And they're still coming through various means so long story short. Even though they took a haircut there can be fine. Yes yeah I WOULD. I would venture to guess so. It's not about the money we just used as a metric of impact as the real thing understand. It's not about the millions of dollars that's just a function of changing people's lives in value to the economy has nothing to do with the money. They don't need the money. They're both billionaires for crap sake. I mean they both run NASA charities Tony Birthday in. La and he gave five million dollars of his own money to a charity. And you raise eighteen million total for operation underground railroad and Sexy traded and slatter trafficking. So if you're looking at just the money you're kind of missing the point. It's like at the house you to do more for other people so given the climate and we're we're at than right now. What what would you suggest someone do now when you think about it like that You know that will click clack thing with the balls and you knock. Wine goes out you. Knock WANNA go that way right like if the momentum like this and it always absent always. Flu is in right now. We're kind of just like way up here and eventually when it releases is going to be a lot of pent up energy there's GonNa be a lot of pent-up resources is going to be a lot of pent up demand and you're going to see people just can't lose their minds. I would think when whatever this is blows over so you know given your experience the people that you work with the circles that you run and I mean you you know you hang with some pretty credible people. What are some of the things that they are suggesting that folks do now from a foundational stamp point so they can really? Would you suggest you know from foundational standpoint of Build? Whatever those pieces are. What pieces do we need to be building now? So that when this things back in the momentum kicks in and all his pent up energy demand is released and resources what what. What should we be doing now? Y- so that's a great question you I'm GonNa Make. It really really simple. I believe that they need skills. I'm trying that I believe that relationship capital. I believe that they need a vehicle with which people skills relationships and as far as skills the best skills to be learning or master tweaking our copywriting sales. If you can't write copy or you don't know how Yemen investigated that yet. Start to learn how rights copy and actually generate some interest with just your words Start to learn how once you have conversation gallingly how to steer that towards a sale and create a relationship based on knowing liking and trusting and then finally have a vehicle through which you can serve those people right when the relationships are bill. Then it's just a matter of time when people are GONNA start to buy in. Communist can start to move again the more people right now that you can create relationships with that no unlike entrust you in the Communist. Turn when you have a vehicle to serve them like masterminds. You can go ahead and do that. How how does podcasting in your mind fit into this equation the host and as a guest? Yeah I think it's a it's a valuable skill right interviewing these incredible skill some of the best interviews in the world make the most money that have the most following you know. Just look Jimmy Fallon for example or not what what's the guy's name from academic try Johnny Carson Chart The Hours? He had any number of them right. So that would be an example of a skill haired with relationship building. They're building relationship with their audience and finally they just need a vehicle on the back end with which to to turn those relationships into a viable business. Got It all right so mary rich. Anything else. For Brad before we before we let him jump here. I really enjoy that. You tie in giving back to the community. That's really impressive and needed even like times like this. I think people are thinking more so about others even though we can't get to them so that's a really important point something. I'd like to put into mind business. Yeah that's a great point is like it's not for me about money or I need to pay my bills like everybody else. But if I wouldn't have built what I built. If it wasn't for the fact that I get to give more to people. I get to build houses schools and donate food and and raise money for charities because I have my my basic stuttered. If I didn't have my base covered I wouldn't be allowed to do any of that and most people right now. They don't even have the basics covered the only way to feel abundance to give more than you think you can right now and your life changes. I didn't make the world way it is. I didn't make universal. It is and what have you believe in creation. Whatever there's something in the universe that that says that if I give more I will receive more and it doesn't always come from the expected but it always comes back in so I just. I have to believe that. That's the way forward from this is not to live in fear but to push forward. WanNa give more than anybody else on more valuable than anybody else right now. There's so many people running right now. We don't need any more of that. I mean people are GonNa adult out anything else I just wanted to kind of go back to your answers as asking the questions earlier and said it was a really good point and I hope people are are will remember that you can either. There's a few ways you can come out the mastermind so you can come in Eagle with the people you can come in where you know more. And you're helping people out or you can come in the last way you were describing where you're bringing other people in that could literally be above you and your adding value to the group of people by bringing that knowledge in almost like documenting the process along the way and I I think for people who are sitting there and wondering you know. What's my skill set? What's my knowledge you know? There's just so many thoughts going through their heads right now. That just knowing you on help a community bringing back being of service with Mary. Just alluded to that it to not get so caught up in just one way to do this. I. It sounds like we could talk to you for another hour. You could probably describe another six seven eight more ways you could do it and I think for people that are just sitting there trying to figure something out that they could probably put something together that they don't really know anything about and they want to gather people that do know that knowledge so just thought that was very very good point. You brought up earlier. Thank you very much for Jason and guys like. I'm here to help if you need help. I can send you my book for free. GotTa cover shipping. It's the mastermind.

We're GONNA run on inventory soon. I'm sure em you'll get more from Amazon. Because they're only on on specific They're only sending out things that you need to add. So while they're there we're GONNA GIVE THEM AWAY. Appreciate the work that you're doing in the world and on the give back. I mean we're actually kicking around the idea of doing something called pod aid right now with the idea of really bringing together a large virtual gathering of leading podcasters to entertain educate and inspire and raise money for those on the front lines serving the those directly impacted by Kobe. Nineteen so given everything that you've got going on there Yeah maybe there's a way that we can play on some of that give back as well but W check out all the fun stuff Brad Hart.
