Anything down while you're listening because the notes for this and every show plus the full archive podcasts. Our in the money girl section at quick and dirty tips dot com. This is episode number five hundred. Sixty eight best budgeting and personal finance tools to help get some recommendations for the tools. I wanted to bring you in this show. I asked the members of my private facebook group about their favorite tools so this has definitely influenced by their responses and I'll call out some of their recommendations as we go so the very first tool on the list is quicken. You've heard me talk about quicken before. It's one of my favorite tools. Quicken has been around a long long time and it's pretty much the gold standard in personal finance software. They have a suite of products that connect to multiple types of account. So it's going to connect to your bank accounts credit cards lenders and vestments. Whatever you've got to aggregate all your transactions and Jim Monica s from the facebook group says I purchase quicken. And it's helped me tremendously and by the way you can also join the group. If you WANNA send me a text I will send you an invitation to the group. The text is dollars. Do L. L. A. R. S. Just send that to the number three three four four four like many companies quicken has moved to a subscription model where you pay an annual fee and then you get automatic updates for new features and services the starter version gives you a lot including automatic categorization limited budget tracking and a bill dashboard. And you can get that for thirty five dollars per year or you can go a little further. And upgrade to the deluxe version for fifty dollars or the premier version is seventy five dollars those. Give you the starter. Features plus customizable budgeting loan tracking investment tracking analysis. Bill pay an online backup. You can use quicken on your pc or Mac but pc users can also get a home and business version for one hundred dollars a year. This helps you manage a small business. Or maybe freelance work by separating your personal and business expenses you can also email custom invoices with payments links and track your business tax deductions which is really helpful. You can enter transactions manually into quick and if you don't want to connect to your financial accounts online and there are quicken mobile APPs of course to sync up with your desktop version. Although you can't see all your data from the mobile APP but it is certainly helpful for an overview quicken has far more features than I'll ever use but it's my favorite way to manage money. Every week I import my new transactions. And I make sure that they're categorized correctly especially those related to taxes so that I can easily create reports at tax time the second tool I wanNA talk about is meant Meghan h from the dominate. Your dollars group says I use men and after seeing it categorized transactions. I couldn't believe how much I was spending at coffee shops a month. It really helped me budget and be more mindful of all the little everyday purchases I was making. Men is one of the original web based personal finance management programs. It's free to sign up and to connect your financial accounts and these include your bank accounts credit cards loans and investments through an easy to use dashboard and then once mint abrogates your transactions. You can easily categorize them create a budget and even set up automatic bill payments you can set alerts for unusual charges create goals and even get a free credit score. The MITT MOBILE APP has a lot of functionality allowing you to check your account balances and your monthly budgets but I will say the downside to most free financial. Apps is that you're gonNA see a lot of ads and sometimes that's not necessarily a bad thing but just be aware that's certainly how they're going to monetize. Plus users sometimes complain about not being able to connect meant with all their financial institutions. However I have not used a personal finance tool yet. That doesn't experience some connectivity glitch. From time to time the third tool is excel or google sheets if you know how to use spreadsheets you may find that excel or Google sheets is all. You need to stay on top of your money along time. Money girl listener and facebook group member named Charles. I says that excel is definitely his to product. Carla are says she's been using the same spreadsheet for years. Carly's telling me one way I use excel is to update my financial statement which lists my major assets and liabilities to calculate my net worth. I also have an Amortization spreadsheet to track loan payments on real estate investments that I own excel as part of the Microsoft suite of products which cost about one hundred fifty dollars or you can get it by subscribing to office three sixty five for about seventy dollars per year on the other hand. Google sheets is a free cloud based service with online sharing features with excel or sheets. You can enter simple formulas to add up rose or add up columns you can create charts and graphs to get customized picture of your finances and you can even export your data into a variety of popular formats such as PDF DAVID. C and Tommy s from the facebook group. Recommend checking out a service called Tiller that aggregate your financial transactions into Google sheets. Tillers pretty cool. It offers several free templates such as an expense tracker a business spreadsheet and a build your own spreadsheet tiller gives you thirty days for free and then charges fifty nine dollars a year and it looks like they're rolling out a Beta product for excel users as well so if you enjoy spreadsheets using them with teller is probably the most customizable financial tool that you're gonNA find. The fourth tool is a budget or a Y. N. A. B. If you're looking for a specialized tool to manage a budget why an AB is a really popular product with a very loyal following and it got a lot of thumbs up in the facebook group. It imports your financial transactions. And helps you create a budget based on your goals? But it's also got a lot of flexibility for unexpected expenses. You can use why. Nabc to generate charts and graphs to see your progress where you might need to come back. They offer loads of tutorials and education on budgeting best practices plus a great mobile APP why. Ab B. Again. It stands for you need a budget. They offer a thirty four day free trial and then they charge eighty four dollars per year. Now if you're a student who can proof of your school enrollment you get a very generous year long free trial so it's a great way to kind of get on board with budgeting when you're young before we go on. I WanNa tell you about a quick and fund way that you can help. Keep the money girl podcast going these days. Many of us are doing a lot more online shopping than we used to.

We're on tool number five. Which is personal capital? If you need a financial dashboard that manages every aspect of your finances. Four free give personal capital a try it aggregates all your financial accounts to track cashflow investments and even helps you plan for retirement Theresa F from the facebook group says she's a fan of personal capital and meant personal capital. Specializes in analyzing your investments by breaking out data such as asset allocation and fees. This gives you a really nice overview. Especially if you've got multiple brokerage accounts or multiple retirement accounts you can even add goals such as saving for a child's education and entertain assets such as the value of your real estate. If you enter all your assets and liabilities personal capital is a great way to monitor your net worth on a day to day basis. This is a free tool that does not push ads for revenue but they offer investment accounts and wealth management advice personal capital charges one all inclusive annual fee. That's based on a percentage of your assets under management. Nee charge point eight nine percent for balances over one hundred thousand and a range of point. Four nine percent up two point seven nine percent if you have over a million dollars. The six tool is acorns. If you don't have a lot of money to start investing try the original micro investing APP. Acorns. What you link it to a debit or credit card acorns automatically sweeps and invest the difference between your purchase cost and the nearest whole dollar amount that you set for example if you spend twenty dollars and fifty cents. The APP could round up to twenty one dollars so it would deduct fifty cents from your bank account and then invest it or you could set acorns to round the next five dollar increment and invest four dollars and fifty cents. So this is a really tech savvy way to invest your quotes spare change in a computer managed portfolio of exchange traded funds. Acorns also offers tax advantaged retirement accounts such as an IRA SEP IRA. And that's called ACORNS. Later using only investing APP will cost you a dollar a month but if you add retirement account to the mix you'll pay two dollars a month and that's for up to a million dollar balance and they also have no fee. Fdic insured checking account called ACORNS. Spend you can use all three of these services for a total cost of three dollars per month but get this. It's free for college. Students who have a valid dot. Edu Email address. Acorns is a really great way to ease into investing when you're just starting out or maybe struggling to save but the main downside is that paying flat fees instead of a percentage can add up to a relatively high cost when you have a small account balance. The seventh tool is better. Meant if you want a large online investing platform with low fees. I'm a huge fan of betterment there. A Robo advisor that uses a diversified portfolio of exchange traded funds that are based on your desired level of risk. And you're investing goals you get access to their team of license financial expert for advice and support betterment offers both regular investing accounts and retirement accounts they automatically manage your investments. So they do things like re-balancing reinvesting dividends and handling recurring deposits. The experience that you get with Betterman on your desktop or even their mobile device is really streamline and it's very easy to navigate and best of all the annual cost to use Betterman is relatively low. It's just point two five percent of your balance which makes it affordable even when you're just starting out and if you've got a higher balance above one hundred thousand dollars the fee increases two point four percent but you also get unlimited access to their certified financial planners for more personalized advice. I've enjoyed using betterment for probably a decade now and I'm always impressed with their customer service. Their communication and affordable fees. The only downside is that they offer a limited menu of investing options. But that works for me. Because I'M A hands off investor who prefers using global diversified funds. If you're somebody that really wants to pick individual stocks Betterman is not going to work for you but there are plenty of other options out there and the last tool number eight is online bill. Pay Tony M says. I really don't use any method except for online bill payment. I'm fortunate enough to be able to Max out my 401k. Ira An HSA and David be from. The facebook group also praises bill pay saying I was in a bad car accident in the hospital for a month but bills got paid automatically. It was one thing my wife didn't have to take care of so I agree using your bank accounts online bill. Pay Is probably one of the most overlooked free personal finance tools out there. Having all your bills in one place makes this often-dreaded task of paying them much easier. In my opinion your payments are either sent electronically or by a paper check so you can pay any company or any individual who has a mailing address most banking institutions guarantee. That your payments will arrive on time and they'll also reimburse you any late fees if those payments don't arrive on time you can create one time or recurring payments for the entire balance. Do or send a partial payment so between your online bill pay and APPS like pay powler Ven Mo- There's really no need to carry paper checks anymore. I have my e bills sent to my USA. A bill pay center so that I'm notified due dates. I can set up payment dates far in advance. I have bills that are said to pay months in advance and can also choose specific accounts to deduct the payment from centralizing bills inside. Your checking account really allows you to see where your money is going and to make sure that you've got enough to cover future payments if you're somebody who hasn't tried any of these personal finance tools or apps yet because you're worried about security here's what you need to know. I do think security is an important issue. But ABS- typically have a read only access and they've got high level encryption and that means that they typically only see your financial transactions. They can't change them or move money around now. There are exceptions the online bill pay services do make requests to move your money. And that's one reason why I stick to my bank accounts. Bill pay instead of authorising other services to do it. There is always a risk to using financial websites or even buying something with a credit card. But I don't believe the risk is high enough that it should stop you from using personal finance tools or online services in fact the benefits of using these tools to manage your money. Save more and build. Wealth far outweigh the downsides before we go I want to thank a couple of listeners who are also students of my bestselling class get out of debt. Fast proven plan to stay debt free forever. Ashley. D.

247. Picard Season 1 Wrap UP

"This is Garrett wanted you probably know is Ensign Harry Kim and you're listening to the FANDOM. Okay we are here. But with the fortress of Fan Dome who got people from the fortress to comedy comic to Kylie to? You The uncanny Ri- ab- from the NERD. Dome podcast. Hello as Nick English from the FANDOM. Podcast Guy Podcast name now apparently not hello and I am your friendly neighborhood. Podcast her Brandon Ushio So we are trying a new live streaming feature. I guess We I have a face for a podcast. Let me just say Nick whichever beautiful. Oh Eh so star Trek Picard. It came out it aired. It finished it finished all of that. So we're going to talk about the things that we were GonNA talk about. All of it spoiler alert. Don't watch this if you haven't watched card or unless you don't care about spoilers I guess You can drop if you're watching this live you can drop comments and on facebook. I'm just stalling for a couple of minutes. Because I was old is best practice to solve for a couple of minutes so that people can join the live stream. Hopefully people joined the livestream. We'll find out But if you got an thousand according to my right we got ten thousand awesome so if you have comments drop them in the comments on facebook and we'll see them and will respond to and there's a bit of a lag so bear with us we will laugh at. Your jokes admitted afterwards. Hey Nick quit watching facebook videos. It's going forever alright. So Star Trek Picard. I think unless you've been living under a rock you know that. Picard set twenty years after the next generation to thirty years twenty years eighteen eighteen eighteen twenty. See this is why we brought experts on it. What what I heard is that it was thirty. Seven years away knows like twenty seven years or something like that however long Alaska. I'm that that he played the last part so that he was exactly the same age exactly so however to it was that the last star trek movie was that he played Picard. That's how long it's been in the show that that explains the time the aging so they did it in real life then that's dedication to the craft. They wanted the series back right after. Tng But they knew they had to wait for him to. I'm just yeah so right now. We're going to wait thirty two years and then we'll probably do it. Why do it now? And every comic con is going to ask you when the next one's coming but instead will make them wait all right so star. Trek Picard is about Admiral. Jean Luc Picard it retired. Yes retired. Admiral Admiral I said Admiral John Picard retired. Engine attention all right. So he's left. Starfleet because of the events of the Romulo evacuation that is in the first J.J. Abrams film tying in the Kelvin University of the route with real universe. But not really tire me as if you this is Canon. That's all talk saying it's all Canon together so the and giving the access to a video stream is probably probably an issue here so okay. So card has gone back to his vineyard. He left starfleet been disappointed in how lack of a moral they have because John looked regarding the moral center when he gets crazy thing dropped on his lap Data's daughter another android after synthetics have been banned And if I were to break down this season in two three story arcs the first three episodes. I would probably call data's daughter because it's all about Dodge and finding so CI and finding out where she is and what's going on and she actually exists then. The next three episodes are like the rescue operation. And this is where he's rescuing Matic's where he's rescuing it's where he's he's being rescued by. L. L. A. Samurai Romulo on. Yeah so the kind of acts like it right is. He thought he was waiting around. Not A one. There's a the the evil woman's half half and half Rahmael and a half Volkan. Yeah Commodore Oh so so. There's a lot of rescuing going on in the next episode. Seven rescues them. They rescue someone else. You know lots of rescue operations going on the ultimately ends with them rescuing so cheap from the Borg Cube all sorts of rescue and going on and then the last three stories last four episodes with last three stories is is like a homecoming if I if I give it a title. It'd be homecoming because it's all about you know so finding her home but then realizing that's not actually where she's going to stay in that's not really where she's home and the federation comes home so to say And so it's it's a really kind of a cool way for it to tie all those together. You guys you guys. Did you see it differently? It or is really good analysis summary. No yeah very very good. I thought it was funny when I was watching the episodes and they gave us episode titles the last two episodes. I can't remember the titles but it was part one part two as if all the other episodes were stand alone. I think that Kinda cracks me up because this is all been a giant story to pull the Nostalgia Festival World Part. One and she actually thought about though that that the fact that they broke into two things is what is what made me think about okay. That is very clearly a story each of these three stories. Each of the chapters are three stories long. So don't they have season finale part one and part two most of the time I guess but it's a new. It's a new age nick. It's a new age EYLAU. I'm quarantined we can't let new Nikki. Expect anyone else. Hold on hold on no. This is live nick. He's out all right well while nixed doing whatever he's doing okay so the for the first couple of episodes did you guys. Why don't we go about this? Let's talk about so. Yeah feel like I feel like you had that ready knowing that you were going to use props for this for this. They'll actually for my constant or stuff sitting here and let's duty over there and I was like I should put on my smoking jacket. This was my grandfather's he since passed away. Come up the pike. I know I know I don't have a pipe. Let's see if I could use but no all right all right. Let's talk let's go. Let's talk about are some of the moments from from Picard. We just loved like what were your favorite moments in there. Let's not talk about the finale. That's because I think we can talk about the finale just on its own but I just want a couple now that the season's wrapped up a couple of your favorite moments. I will depart hands down. Just freaking out and seven of nine was like I don't want to take over this cube and she's like I might not want to stop and then she had been my mind blue and then she kicked and then when she kicks her down the in Classic Star Trek fashion kicking. Somebody down corridors. Yeah now queen. That was that was that was pretty good. What about like? Can you imagine how cool it would have been though if they had not like? What kind of scenes we had gotten if they had not vented all the board into space I was. I was really bummed when they did that because I was. I want this to go a completely different way when she activated the board Am I make? They kind of took away from us but still awesome. You know it's this this show Can reminded me of I'm a huge fan. So when they did twin peaks return it was it was a show when they brought this back it was. It was what I didn't know I wanted. Basically they you know. I'm glad they gave us some fan service. I wanted more but what they gave me was just perfect. I'm glad they didn't overdo it with everything and there was. There was quite a bit of Fan Service. There was like two plus. Oh Yeah but but to the point like breaker like you. You'd see him. You'd see him in troy the ads. They're like where are they? Where ARE THEY EMMY? Show up for just a little bit and do we want more? Of course we do but it was. It was perfect the way they did it. I think this is going to. There's there's a whole generation of Star Trek fans that can watch this and appreciate the story for what it is and not have to know everything else. After each episode I watched the ready room and one of the interviews. Where will we had Patrick Repair They talked about how he was very much like. I didn't WanNa do it. I didn't want to A do anything that I've already done before. And then when they kind of talked him in he was very much like no. We don't WanNa do that or no. This is wrong. The fans will no. You can't do it this way. Have to do it this way. And he was like a producer of the show. We had a lot of stay in what happened. And he was very much like a do some of the fan service. But then don't do a ton of it. And he got the choose a lot of what panthers they just put in what they didn't and like interviews that I have read and seen him in. He basically said the only way he would do. It is if the story was good and he. He gushed about the people that were writing it. He's like these are like some of the greatest writers in Hollywood right now and so. That's pretty much the only reason that I decided to do it and I was like afterwards. I was like yeah. They are the best like tell me where helmet next time because it just blew my mind now. I have to clean the sheets but like afterwards I was saying I I even said to lean. I was like Lena. You need to watch this and she had been half watching it but like the last part leading you need to watch this last part and she was like now you can just tell me and I was like no. You need to watch it. I was like this is as good if not better than mandatory in and I know that people are going to be like but I really now. You've got you've brought in star wars versus Star Trek. You know I'm GonNa say is better the Mandolin. I'll go on record as here's the thing. I don't feel like there was any spots in this show that it was just kind of like Like it was like with Manda Laurien. It was so you know that little dip in the middle you know. I mean it's like it's like comparing like Nachos to Nachos like they're both delicious making his nachos everytime having nachos with chicken or Nachos with beef. You're just I'd okay. So what am I gonNA reports about? This was the very beginning with his housekeepers caretakers. That ended up being taljaare like that. That was just every interaction with them. I loved 'cause it's like well of course the card would have caretakers. That were former tells Yaar. Have you read the book? I haven't I didn't. I made a specific decision when it came out to not because I did not I. I was worried that it was going to be treated a lot the way the star wars has Mike Nick's head chicken nachos beef nachos. I loved it all. I still want him both but I didn't want to. I wanted to experience this just the way it was and I probably will go back but you can tell me what. So what about these people from the comics it? It's about them. So if it's very much a supplemental story it has nothing has no real bearing show or or there's no information there that that you need to know or or anything like that. It's just a little story about how type A card and those two got together. They met and how they How what happened? And why they left the show to go with a cocker proper. Okay I love the fact that like she walked into the crime scene and it was like we can scan this and he was like that doesn't work. They was proven that it doesn't work. Well that's just what we wanted you to believe. And then and then with the I can't remember exactly what it was like in the third episode. I want to say which like you can't go out Bob. It by the end fight the towel she are by yourself and the other guy was like. Yeah you're going to need a team. That's what I was saying. I was trying to tell him not to do it. Just those interactions with them. We're just awesome. I absolutely loved it because they looked very much like just. Oh we're just your sweet caretakers but no no they were. They were bad tells she our agents during that same scene that you get the earl grey. Decaf he's old. He's there was nothing the age difference from. Tng to that then that one line of grey DECAF. I was worried. There was gonna be a twist where they were evil eye and I was like I was like him so much. Please don't make these bad guys. Please don't do this. It could have been a very easy way to adds something but I'm glad they didn't. Yes yes because I kind of feel like Picard would have been able to like no you know. These people are not good. I mean he's such a judge of character that that's true like even if they had tried to do that it'd be like nope that's wrong. What about okay? How about this? What about the DND mission? That they went on where to the crazy plan. Rescuing Matic's where they all played a different character role played. He had an at and the ridiculous French accents. And no one's GONNA no. It's not picard. I mean like really got to put a face mask goners though and put an entire helmet on top of yourself or something. I got a question throughout to you. Guys So they did such a good job of bringing original cast members into replay roles. Now Bruce Maddox was not the original actor. I will have it. Does anyone know why that is? He still alive. As far as I know he was not the original actor. That made me mad. I haven't even know the fact. That wasn't the original actor just the way that the whole thing was handled because each have became one of my favorite characters on voyager and so I thought to hijack your question Kylie but I like each just makes me the way they handled. That made me mad. They fringed his character right like he was. He was Lieutenant Commander off by mail gay. I don't know I don't see that's why that's why it's good to have people to call. They kill the character. Did They Kill Them? They kill the character just like that for no for no reason at all. Yeah but each. It's just one of those things that it was like okay. That was completely fan service because they could have explained. Seven being a thunderous ranger another way at her taking it so personal another way but they just like. Oh we'll just kill somebody and it's like each was fan service but I was watching it and as I was watching it. I got another friend that I talked to about this a lot. I texted him and I said is that each and then she called him my bike and then we find out it was each of it I was. I was just so mad about that I still. I'm still mad about that. Does that was wrong? Way To handle each ebb. Sorry sorry rant rant on that as Britt Matic lied. I didn't actually look. I was surprised that they didn't have him. I'd actually look out hoping that he would i. Yes bless you so I just looked up and the actor has not appeared in anything since twenty eleven still unsure why he was not cast in but he he was in. I mean that Greg Maddux episode is one of my favorite measure of a man is the one who then I episode of Picard. I mean I watched it like two or three times. I I just got a next generation mood and I was just going through episodes in that major man was when I went through. And I'm like okay. If they keep talking about Bruce. Let's see this. And then when they brought him on. That's when I was like that's that's not the same guy well and there's a picture of the guy and I don't know if he's camera ready either. Kinda like us. I mean he's probably not the best anyway but hey if marvel can get everybody camera ready like Chris. Pratt from two. He went to do that. You think star Trek went from this to those. I don't know about blue. Yeah Okay we can come in and had a canon. Okay okay. All right Yeah that's a good question so I I didn't notice those so I don't think anybody I don't think anybody I think they took it. The border like us. Should we talk to the original guy? Because he really wasn't in it for that long. It was just like an episode really. Yeah it was just an episode. I'm pretty sure that he was like ten million minimum. Kind of a big deal. One of those guys. You can't do the story without me. I'm Bruce Matic's so okay. So how about when they did start doing the fan service evenings and when when he showed up at will the Anna's place the best episodes their daughter. What's her name Goget Castro Castro? Yeah I was like wait. I know someone who gets kissed. Your drafty did you remember. It originates Kingston Us fans are busy Brian. Why don't you explain it for us? It was the data troy sister that died in that one episode where on a has built weird Memphis traumatic memories and then they have to go inside of her brain not just a hat rack. All right we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA need them to tell us if Castro was named after Star Trek Andrew when you watch this inevitably. I don't know if you know gastric Kester likes page. But I have a feeling that she's not going to watch this. Maybe we should tag her in it all right then. Let's so I thought she was amazing with languages so it was that she like extremely brilliant and gifted. We're both for children or is that just how children in that century are on STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION. They were doing calculus and stuff like that. The good question. That is a good question. Well we he's like the Chosen One so according to settle down working according to those. I like seasons. It's like oh that's genius. And he's the greatest that's why he's he's in it now and he's GonNa come up with you know solving like stuff that nobody else can remember. I have this theory. I have this theory. Your your opinion of of Wesley crusher depends on how old you were when you were watching the next generation. Because I liked. I liked him when I was young without now. I'm like yeah when you're watching it. Now e walks it's like e walk. Art Jar is the only one okay. Maybe maybe it's like jar jar. I need to pull out my larger pipe for this one. Nick okay so I don't know I just thought it was interesting because he created all these languages and things that only one of the things that really impressed me was that The character that we've never met there appeared onscreen. I felt a loss I was sad. I was those that he had died in the passed away at all of them. Were so bad. Like I really don't that and you've never even seen him or anything just through their acting talking about. I thought that was really cool. I'm glad you said that because I fell for that one like hook line and sinker to like I got really emotional over that but then I thought to myself. Oh it's because I'm a parent and so they knew which buttons to press to make the parents feel like this but you not having kids. I think they didn't just play me too much. I mean they play me and they knew what they were doing like a fiddle. So he's got a smoking jacket and now one that's a fiddle okay. I'm combining all phantoms. Because we're here at defend the fortress of Fan Dylan Liam what it is made out of endelman strongest alloy defender. Neom all right. So let's see what about. I got another one. If you want one young man. Now you dropped it you dropped. It advocate favorite moments from that up. I'm going to have to take you on an adventure to go. Get my phone charger. Hunkin Jay my other favorite moment. I did love when he was making pizza. Faith Autumn I want pizza. And it's one of those things where like He. It was like what would be the thing that William Record would be doing on the planet cooking all the things cooking and yelling at everybody while doing yoga and I love the way that they parents to. They're like yeah. Go in the forest and hunt with sticks and things. It was nice to see in that episode. Because I'm so used to. I've watched next generation so many times and grew up with it The good thing stuff where they don't they don't have that great of relationship so going into it. I'm like okay. Are they on the rocks here? Are they good friends? What's going to happen so it was very nice to see you. The they were still very good friends. I mean they. They set us up for that. Though when the caretakers we're talking about contacting Reicher and he's like will will do whatever I asked him to do so. I can't do that true. They did said that up at least but no. You're right you're right. That was good to see 'cause logically that's where they would not. I mean yeah. There's I can't imagine that there would ever have been something that would have separated them to the point that they were. You know things yeah. I think it's really cool that their relationship has changed though. They're very much. Not The the admiral first officer captain stops anymore. They are airborne equals their peers their friends. Yes yeah yeah definitely they they. They how their relationship was really awesome. It was really cool to watch them watching. Walk in and just like mentioned. Oh Yeah we might be being followed to and the cabin in. The Woods has a defensive system. Don't do it by an end. Scampered the cloaking tonight. And you're like Oh look fancy. I want that house. He's on top of that. We're going to set all this up and then we're going to go cook pizza because we're good do you know. Why do you know why they invented? Though I'm sure it was because of the cove in nineteen threat to have personal defensive barriers. Sorry sorry dated this podcast now. You don't have that in your house. That's an option. Rather shiels up. This is my personal barrier. I'm assuming for the audio listeners. Ask over his his camera car. Might Okay Nick UK. Yeah see ones. Yeah I picked it up. Thanks for dropping it. Okay all right okay. So should we talk about the finale? I mean we we. We jumped around if you haven't watched it like watch it and that's why we're not giving us a breakdown of everything here. We're talking about our favorite parts. And I think we really need to talk about the finale. Because finale was awesome just awesome cried cried. I'm in a glass cage of a Moshe very many episodes that I didn't get a little emotional. I don't think there was one that I didn't get I watched. The finale was Was in in. I mean I had to get her into star Trek So it was Kinda shocking in the last episode where she was actually crying. I'm like you get all this. This this is Stan. That's funny no. I left out because I came home from work and I was like okay. I WANNA finish this. I WANNA watch on the big TV. Because I mean as much as fun it is to watch it on a phone. I was like I want at least watch the finale on the big TV and Lena had decided to go out and pick up some stuff. That was going to take her while I was right alone. Like no kids. Anything and I was just I can just watch this with like like in the dark and like every it was so good I When I got home where space bio home. When when when Lena got home it was when Picard had was because dying. Just say it just say I was looking at it. She was like is spoilers. Spoilers she's like title is he really dying and I was like and covert comes over and he's like Dad. What's what isn't shown. I was like this star Trek. And he's like. Oh yeah okay okay. And then he's like what's happening to that guy town and everything better so I was watching it in my office. I've got a thirty two inch. Tv and they're sitting there and watching it and my daughter comes in right at that moment. Where he's laying on the ground and everyone's he just beamed down back to the planet and I'm visibly shaken right and my daughters my of my daughter's trying to get my attention and she's five and I and I turned to his. I'm trying to watch it. This is really important right now. And she said Okay and then she looked at me and she sees that I might visibly shaken and she looks at the TV and she's Dad. Is here friend and I said Yes yes he is because I thought about it like Picard has been with me my entire life and so when I was like he's dying. This is picard. Who taught me how to be a human being just the same way he taught since he taught him. He's dying now. I'm upset and then my daughter looks at me and says Oh daddy I'm so sorry. Thanks so this though that I when he was dying I was like well. They're just going to put him in a android buddy up. They said it out easily. It was like the episode before they're like. Oh you made a goal and this is how I can do this and I was just like they really going to making like live forever and so when his first questioned and his face during like the Acting Gash? Sir Patrick you you win. But like when he was like. You didn't make me immortal did you. And there and you know he has this look of like. I don't want that sounds like and they're like no no he says but maybe twenty more years. My female conversation came right after his discussion with data about how the end is what makes life precious and so if he was all of a sudden like data basically just said please kill me and then like wait. Am I gonNa be trapped the way the data is being trapped? And no no. You're okay but they were like. Oh Yeah we didn't give you any superpowers because we figured you wouldn't want that bullcrap. No there's nobody in the world who would want superstring there you know so. I think I think they handled it. Well so start So that Patrick Stewart can come back to do season to if they're going to do season two. Have you seen any news about data to season two? They've even announced within Goldberg. It's going to be in season to have announced that on the view I actually watched the view wants what obstacles fan it is so cool to see it Her get so excited and so happy and the January huge mile. She has when. Let me ask that. It's so cool. They had him on so I that I'm going to go off topic here for just a second. I will go through my dvr and look at all the talk shows. There's someone I like. I'll record talk show I wanna hear an interview or whatnot. Saw Patrick Stewart's going to be on the view like well. What the Goldbergs. On that I WANNA watch this interview so I sent my Dvr to record it that whole interview. He's supposed to be on their pimping picard. His whole segment was that it was that was all it was. They didn't really talk about the show it was. They were so excited that they invited back. And that was that was the whole thing and it was pretty sweet going to that finale. Knowing that they were doing a season two and she was going to be involved. Well okay. The death is still got me but I knew it wasn't right. I mean obviously. We know that he's not dead because he's got he's got. He's got plot hermit. He's he's the main character of a show. The show is called starter cart however I bet you season two is the end of card and they start a new show called like star Trek Rangers or something like that. I WANNA see seven show. Yeah so a show about seven then we get to see Chakothi. Show back up Gary It'll be interesting because of what they're doing with seven and and her sexuality because I I K- correct me if I'm wrong but the hand holding was very very tension base right when they did the scene with. You don't know what we're talking about the don't get into the scene with I can't remember the name. The Bad Guy Lady that captured Ruth Matic Attorney and Yeah I can't the the crazy. Yeah Yeah when they were playing back and forth and honest like seventy nine betrayed me and they count the Shared history. I very much got the thing that they were in a relationship. They were infamous. I very much felt that and then okay but nobody you if I read a lot of work into things that have maximum. They're kind of what I do but it makes a lot more. It makes a lot of sense so I mean okay. So here's straight straight guy soapbox moment throwing all these gay relationships do. It doesn't matter like I watched the show and I didn't even pick up on that it doesn't matter like it just was a good story like well. She was great and voyager. And I'm like she was brand new today exactly. He doesn't know although I tell you. I really want to coach to show up just to see what happens with the whole interpersonal relationship thing there because she had the Hawks Pacheco today saw might be try sexual. She'll try anything even Jack. Okay so yes. I think they're going to do a ranger. Show Picard pretty much pretty much spelled that out when he said when she's like Oh are you off to save the Galaxy and he said No. That's that's your job now and I'm old. He was referring to the Rangers obviously but felt like it was a wink towards the fourth wall. I gue- seven of nine. Show years want that and yes yes I do. Yes I do here was fans of Wager. I I love. It's one of my kids. Good okay good to hear that I will admit that I did not watch it while it was airing did like one or two episodes everyone while I was like. I don't know these people let's go watch. Tng and I. I I still get yelled at from this guy over here. Oh no over here. I have never watched deep space nine. You need to keep space. Nine is so good but I've watched I watched voyager. Because I was I was going to be the series and it was one of Lena's favorites. She loved it. She was like you. GotTa Watch it and I was like yeah I do. I need to watch it and so it's one of the things I watch on Netflix. I love I loved it. I mean voyagers boys right enterprise and I got about halfway through season one to keep you in it now. I just went and looked clips online We don't need to watch the whole show to get that Dick Dick all right so you haven't done. I did let me let me throw this one last thing in. I've liked how Roffe I've I love that character. I loved it at the end. Where she she kinda gets her son with. Eleanor where you know she. She doesn't have access to her son. And the grandson and her elmore have that bond and when he comes up when when he has died and they just have that moment. I was like Oh my God. It was. It was good. I'm very excited for Elmore Q. New moms and his GRANDPA I mean. Isn't that what star? Trek has always kind of story about found family. Yeah we get. I mean every every single one become family And I this one I mean just like all the recent shows it's a serial and everything but this one this one felt more star trek to me and I think the reason it felt more star trek to me is because it was not about one person. Yes it was called star. Trek Picard and it followed Picard Story Card had hero's journey but so so chee and so did Ravi and sewed Rios like it was about all of them off. And I don't get me wrong. I love discovery but that one is clearly about Michael where this one was about the entire crew and it really showed how it's done I I love. I love that I love. That actor got to do like every accent that he can do as in one I was like not flicker dream now took me. It took me until the final episode when they were working on the ship and getting that fix his ship has a Eddie Van Halen Guitar. Paint vibe going on with it. I can't. I can't believe it took me that long to see that in the show I mean. Yeah Yeah how? How did it take you that long? I Know Eddie Van Horn and even Horn Eddie van Horn. I know I know a Keith van Horn. He used to play for the youth and Brooklyn Nets. Now you're losing me at this point all right all right. I think Patrick Stewart might write it into all of his contracts. His mind can never die. Because if you think about it. They did the exact same thing in X. Men where his brain as he's bodies dying? His brain is conscious. Transfers into another body I mean that's honestly one of my first thoughts when I when I was like wait. They're moving them into that body. Okay all right. He's he's pulling a professor x with me he did. Put it up like that. You know that was going to happen but I kept convincing myself now. Back to red herring but something is going to happen. I don't want him to be a anywhere. Okay WELL AT THE END. I love the part where where you know. He's talking to her and she says I'm not going to be with my people or something like that. I don't remember what it was now. But then he's like and metoo now since ban is lifted. I can travel now since ban is yeah. I was just like well done now and that goes a lot to say. I mean that actually makes a Lotta sense card as a character because he thought he always thought so much for data to have rights and he was always there and so she made the comment of you know. You can't just do this for us like you can't decide because this is not your life this is our lives and basically said you are not a sin. Listen to make the decisions for the since. And now he isn't like I just thought that was a that was a very circular way to handle things there to kind of Reicher wasn't there at the end. He took off before he died. So the next time I see not I mean there's picard but it's not it's Card's GonNa go around to be like. Oh yes I'm a since now. No but I think if he if he becomes cost Reicher. Troy's going to be there and she's GonNa be interested. Ooh season two. I'm waiting for that to anybody else. Jump Out of the chair when the Federation fleet showed up so good Scott if you guys watched it like that last big battle and discovery was like this is what I this is what. I WANNA space battle. This is. I WANNA see Ya. I was just waiting for the shifts to jump in and just like I duNno. I happy that Reicher was there. That's when I jumped out of my seat I was. Did you not see that coming though I did? Everything was predictable but the way it was perfect like seeing Reicher in that uniform I I loved getting Reicher on the planet. I loved seeing there but the second I saw him. Uniform captain's chair. Yes I have a problem with that. Okay all right owned. So they just did the the HOLOGRAPHIC MANEUVER. The thing with the car plugged it. That whole thing. Partner looks great but Then then the whole complete comes in and all those are the things. I didn't like that. I like that at all and got a little fat on like there's just all cookie cutter ships now like that. When he mentioned he had like the most powerful ship in the fleet and he has he has a whole week. Then I was like okay I can. I can accept that a little more yet was it was a little boring when they all when they all jumped in and it was the same ship I will agree with so think about what the Dominion War would have done to the Federation the Federation with a Weenie attack right after that. Yeah we need a fleet of ships that can kick but that we can do this with. I'm sure they still have their funky looking signs vessels because the science specials always look. We thank you. We need to talk to him. I Really WanNa talk to him nick. He sent his up. Set it up so they all the thing I saw the the Romolo can come. Genera- door then I would have just doing the same thing again. Out In flat number the they were being hailed. The hailed them one out of that moment. I was bummed when we didn't see any fighting because of Mike we got this huge Robin Fleet and the Star. Leave the one hundred fifty eight ships. Come on I wanna see this when he's like we will escort you to the edge of the inland. No no he's like no I I would love to assure. Okay I WANNA know if you guys disagree with me on this. I okay wrong. I think that the orchids are a stupid planetary defense mechanism. Absolutely stupid so many SMART. Since androids whatever they call down there they could've designed we gotta think about it. It's a moon. They do anything if not dramatic and absurd so controlling the doctor doom. Making like you know what I. I WanNa Fleet of defenses but I want them to be organic or looking in vote so I mean here's the you've got one orchid you've got one orchid can take can take down one ship and so it's like all right over over effect that when they were so big that it looked like they were doing like two or three but they weren't the take down a single Romulus ship. Did they know they shot him? Apart with it was more of a fight but it it was more of a like like. Let's let's give them some time here to fight these things. If if it was like an energy disruption beam out of a satellite or something that that could have been cool like it would have had the same effect it killed your ship. Systems. And then you use the planet's gravity as a as part of the defense mechanism. Although I would like to point out. It was not very effective because even though the ships crashed to the ground everybody survived. The thing is really going to set up something that is going to be able to take down a fleet of two hundred eighty five or because he's been secret couldn't to it could take to kill one perfectly fine when it will burn ship for crying out loud. Yeah Very Naval Board ship. It did take one of those. Yeah time then. It's a perfect. Like perfectly good self defense mechanism. But they're not like oh you know what the whole fleet is gonNA come tack us because of his own. Hubris also think about it soon as probably really sexually frustrated because he's only human on earth and so he's of course going to make something that looks like a giant never mind. Oh of course you went there. Of course you would there am I not right. I'm right I don't know Oh okay Okay so what else about card like what? What else do we want to make sure we cover before we wrap this thing where we've been going for about fifteen minutes. Your favorite character. Mary favorite talk character. I like Rafi quite a bit. She might weeks they've really okay. I don't like I like her but I don't like like very compelling story why not. I don't like her My favorite I loved him favorite. Semi Sam Sam. Romulus like anything with him and I would have liked his character but the fact that he is of the order of candy whatever candor just like always take candidates they I mean his character was just so awesome he was the okay so I know we had. So Cheetah is the android the non human and he seemed even more. So right yeah. He was the one who was discovering what what humanity actually was. I feel like and so always have a character. That has that So I I liked that character. Rio says off so I I did like Rossi but realizes pretty sweet. I I think I like chemistry too though high chase heather you are the best and always will I really like I really liked Castro. Thought she was a cool little character. Did you just focus on me? Yeah 'cause you're talking you're talking. I'm switching live. Dang it back and you know I liked her. Rears is my favorite. But I think it's just because so good and and there was a lot of children. Children actors are hard are hard to really good and like she was really good at with. I like the conversation had was so cheap. Coachee was really cool. I liked that actress. I really don't feel like there. Was anyone in this show that I like. The question wasn't did you like them. Question was. Who's your favorite favorite? I would probably say Rios and Castro whereby favorite characters. I'm very excited to see what else the actor the plate Castro. I'm very she does because she was so good. She was phenomenal actresses actors. I loved the person who played so cheesy and Dodge and the golden skinned version of her. That was that she got only range and she looked creepy. No yeah that's that's what e- images as well. I totally love that. They like totally threw a fast one on us too because it was like. Oh there's these since they all want to be free and one of them like kill all the humans and then we're like wait. They're not all good like blowing my mind. I was like you're so easy to just write it like yes. We're going to save them. Take them off you. No they made it much more better. It's all right now. They're they're having some complaints that I've seen about this as a this was like a white savior type show the card's pin but It's Picard guy in the whole joe well for Reicher I love to and we could probably well questrom. She's not she's half Bays Lloyd talking. That's fine she's signed up anyway. Yeah anyway I just thought that was interesting now. Yeah I would probably say so cheese. My new is my favorite air crash. You have really not really crush. But just just because he knows what's going to come from her in the future. Of course we know I'm snoring knickknacks. We know we know who rio says. We know who picard is. Well we're characters. We know who all these characters are. I'm sure there's new things to learn about them but I I really think that the ones that we the one that we just don't know anything about yet is so cheese character in so that'll be interesting to see where they take that so. That's probably where I'd go with that one so great anything else before we wrap this up. Can't wait for season to start filming. Yeah we have discovery coming up though. So then something now they. At least they've finished filming that before. Everything went on lockdown strongly. Recommend watching the ready room. It's really cool beaten divided up interviewing everybody. I will be doing that. And also there's Screencrush has a like Easter eggs after each onto and I have enjoyed watching military. Pretty Cool Yuli. I think I can think of is. Did anybody else feel like Like get shades of the wrath of Khan. When Rio was eating his apple. Watch apple and that is Admiral Kirk. Eating is apple in the cave. I just I don't know I think you're giving a little too much credit there. That was that was kid. Ed Kirk in the Kobe Meru. Maybe I wasn't even apple just like in wrath of Khan I was like Maybe stretching looking for things that were in there anyway. I loved it all right Nick Spoken. Make it so okay. Okay that I really liked win. What what is the blonde doctor's name She was the white girl white girl. Asher sure. Sure when when she basically reversed it on Picard was like make it. Sounds like in the in the ready room? The energy apparently practice against that. But I don't want her to go line by line into and then worked out pretty all but he was originally mcdonagh's all right well. I guess we'll probably be talking more about this as time goes on just because it was so good. We'll find things to talk about. And it's three to watch until March twenty four earn something twenty fourth. April probably probably harsh words last week. Watch until that. No go watch it. Watch this whole thing. And you're like all right Ryan. Where can people find you if they want to hear more of your sweet sweet tones? I am not doing the me and Kylie on the NERD. Dome PODCAST APP Nerd. Don't podcast dot com on on the podcast there all right Kylie how. `Bout you you've got some more in Gem ner ner Dome of course and the fortress of comic to check those those on twitter and stitcher and all the fun stuff. Facebook's everything's and Brandon is not interviewing other people. Oh speaking of drying next week next week. Nick won't be on our show again. It'll be you and I I the podcast that also this guy does it's backwards. Here's the story right. All right all right okay. So let's wrap this up I am co host with Nick and someone else named Taylor who I didn't force her to watch all picard. Although if I'M GONNA Walk Chronicle Mars. I think she should watch card Easter sure that she would like this show. I think so Over the FAN podcast. Which is the page this live streaming on. But we'll get audio to whichever podcast want to use this that are participating but you can find us over fandom podcast dot com search for the Phantom podcast in your APP of choice. And so with that. I guess I'll have to say until next time. I didn't tell anybody about this. Live long and prosper made the fan to be with you.

What You Dont Teach in Sales Training That Guarantees Failure

"At farmers insurance we have concrete evidence that parking under an industrial cement mixer. That's just asking for trouble seen it covered it. Click for more in my arms truck. Fire insurance exchanges in affiliates products available in every state. Hey welcome back through another episode of m a radio. We have a rotating series of programs this month. Monthly show is outstanding out found the only show that takes takes a look at what's happening in the outbound world of sales these days with our house marian vanilla the author and c._e._o. All of the middle group she's going to bring her expertise to help us explore. This growing field gives us a few controversial points of view. I'm sure along away as well. Hey marianne how are you. I'm good you know i'm always <hes> i was gonna kick out of talking with you on the show here because you due present a contrary narrative to what we hear outstanding outbound forget it outbound is dead. I'll i'm trying to do is get inbound. I just want order takers. I don't want people actually trying to reach out. Is that tipping at all or is that still the prevalent wind well. It really depends on leadership and what is their vantage point and understanding of engagement so if you look at most large companies they have an outbound function chin so that fortune five hundred companies. They haven't outbound function large tech companies. They have an outbound function so it it definitely league is a critical component to identifying opportunities and there's really a unique element to having those conversations and outreach outreach is you're. You're able to see where your prospect is in the planning cycle so it's not a bunch of guesswork and scoring based on you know while that's valuable. I'm i'm not saying that it's not valuable to track the digital interactions that your prospects have but you can also glean a ton kind of information just from conversation and then that can enable you to put your prospect in exactly the right content stream of so. You're doing the right thing at the right time so that you're in the right place at the right time when they're gonna start making those final decisions on what they're going to buy and you you know a lot of that. I find is not something that is really taught in sales training and it's a lot of soft skills well. That's really the point of today's. They show is what you didn't learn in sales training and i think there still is a lot of sales training out there. You can certainly go see it online. You can certainly take seminars to read books but i would suspect all the big companies still have like they had a million years ago. The kind of xerox or ibm training sales schools the training process. They want you to follow but what don't they teach you teach you how to close. They teach you how to prospect. They teach you how to ask qualifying questions but i know i know that they teach you a lot of things. You're talking about yeah and when i say soft skills it's more you know. Do you understand the psychology of engagement gauge meant and what happens when you call someone. I had a client wants. That said you know they can't imagine doing the kind of work that that we do and i asked them build you. Call people you don't know and they said all the time and so you know that's all we do is call people. We don't now so l. It's not that idea of cold calling. Has this whole achey right because you're interrupting somebody you're you're you're suddenly appearing and asking them to drop everything they were doing and listen to. You and i think people are hesitant to do that just like they're hesitant to jump up crowd and and say hey look at me. Some people aren't some people it comes natural but <hes>. I think most people if they're invited in. They're happy to talk about their product. They're eager to talk about their a product or a until learn but this idea that you're going to interject yourself. You're you're gonna take. You're gonna roll the dice and see if you can get somebody on the phone okay. That's what scares everybody yeah. There is a way that you can have those conversations. I mean we do it all the time and it really has has to do with your vantage point as the person initiating the conversation and really understanding what you're stepping into so you know i look at in your puncturing their bubble of their their day right so what's going on what they're working on the really super busy and you're in an eruption to doc so it's not that prospects don't take calls. They just don't take bad calls. Bad call is starting off with an apology. Legit sorry to get you to bed time here. I'm sorry to interrupt you. I'm gonna give you a chance to hang up on me right now. It also really creates this class distinction. If you call your prospect and you apologize you know. I get emails that they apologized. College is for sending me an email apollo or people call and they apologize for calling and you know. I know you're so busy and it's like why why talk to me like that. Not because that puts you. You're not talking to me in a subservient role ray please. I'm sorry and it also it also says that what i'm saying is not very very important. I think that's what so many of these people don't realize if you come in and that point of view. Can you give me a second. I'm so sorry to interrupt you. I know you're really busy and everything well then. You're saying that this isn't important but if you if there was a fire outside you run in the door and you tim harrington interrupting but there's a fire outside. I'm i'm sorry i'm interrupting you but there's something terrible happening and we got evacuate the building. No you'd come in. Come in loud and screaming and say everybody listen i. I don't know that there's that sense of what i'm going to tell you is important enough to interrupt you and i have an exercise that i do with the training clients that i have and you know because a lot of them have an idea of what they want to accomplish quish when they engage with companies but a lot of times either so many missed opportunities to just really dig deep and develop that art of conversation because you can pull so much information out that there are often opportunities in areas that you would think there's not so i'll give you an example is when we do work with clients have marketing automation for example through adding a layer of conversation into that so we'll look at the different scoring whatever nomenclature that they're using. I'm for their lead ranking and then however they're attaching scores to digital behavior you we can find about fifteen percent of active opportunities by including some conversations in that so there are a lot of things that are missing and calling is becoming the last thing that teams do which is kind of interesting like <hes>. I know a lot of teams aren't doing any calling. They're doing all of their prospecting via email. They're waiting until the timing's right to call them and it's like <hes> you know i it. If it's a large enough deal you should have an outbound component gone on around that for sure because you're missing an opportunity to have a very meaningful engagement and you're gonna miss deals that nothing else is going to pick up other than a conversation well and you can cut through the clutter. You know people are bombarded by messages all day long and and were trained to just sift through them. No no no no no we read the caption or something quickly and we just eliminate them but if you can break through and do it in a way way that doesn't abuse their time yes. I'm interrupting you so i'm going to be quick and i'm going to get to the point and i'm going to present some value to you because i i. I really believe this is something you need to hear that you're otherwise going to miss in the noise. I think if you take that approach there's value bring in the people on the other end will respond to it. I know i do if somebody calls me unexpected and is quick into the point and has thought through something that really applies to me. I might listen to them but when they start this long process hi. How are you mister. Roberts <hes> glad to know you. How's your day going. It's like torture and and it it's not it. That's not a pure level business. Call you know the another challenge thought it was interesting near the bridge. Group does a report court on s._d._r. <hes> benchmarking and metrics in one of the things that and this is something that really stood out to me. Is that average s._d._r. Experience at higher and back in two thousand nine it was two point four years which it's still pretty pretty new now and now two thousand sixteen. The one that they released was one point three three years. Somebody's barely got fifteen months of experience under their belt and those are the people that get put on the front lines to call senior level level executives and to have a pure level conversation with them and often. It just doesn't happen because those soft skills. Aren't there fro it. Oh you've wurley gotta work on that with your sales organization in a way to do that. Is some of it starts at hiring. So how do you know oh. You're hiring people that can engage with people at that level. I don't think any of us really know. I'm sure that you do and i'm sure you're going to give us some ideas but i'm gonna <hes>. I'm going to put some truth serum in the coffee cups of a bunch of sales managers out there and say tell me the truth do really know how to hire for these skills well so you know it's interesting because i find that some sales people are good at selling themselves for the job is great eight at developing and and <hes> you don't get getting in gaining access to accounts in their territory and on what that has to do with are a few things is i. I see this quite a lot is organizations kind of assume that wraps apps bring this kind of system of operating with them like how do you work your. How do you work your territory. How do you make sure you have equitable coverage of your accounts. How do you do this so organizations need to get really granular about what is the work structure. Look like so so not assuming that people know how to do that but saying okay. This is how this happens. This is what happens when you get this outcome. When you get this result yeah so you give them this framework and it enables them to not have to create something that maybe is inconsistent with what other people are doing like a lot of times. I noticed that they'll start people and say okay. Here's your here's your database. Here's here's your sales intel platform. You know here's all your logging information sales. Training is a lot about products and about you know the battle card. I've okay you're if they're doing this. Then you can do that and here's these product features and here's these weaknesses and this is what we want to sell into and all that but there's i this whole like critical thinking engagement piece of it. That isn't even dressed often. I think you really hit on something there in ongo even deeper. I don't think there's much training or methodology behind <hes> territory management so many of us i was i was a sales sales. <hes> rep in my youth for a couple of different companies. I was part of that churn and burn mentality. They just hired a bunch of us and through us out and some of succeeded in most of us failed and then i went and got another job when i failed at another company and failed for them as well because they just said they taught me about the product but but they didn't tell me about the process. Nobody taught me how to go out and knock on doors. Nobody taught me how to engage with people on the phone. That's all we had in those days days and now you've got to do social media and you gotta do email and and twitter and other things that potentially as well who teaches you that do they even know how to do that or are. They just expecting you to figure it out. It's just it's just kind of how things have been done and so it's about selling ling is about knowing the product in on you've got to be able to map certain requirements that the prospect has to certain ways as to uncover that they have that problem would so however you have that conversation in that that part is that's a given like we know what what these features are gonna address. Are we know what the results are but the thing that really needs to happen is what happens when you you want to have an a one on one just pure level conversation and how do you steer and navigate that and how do you started and then. How do you navigate aided quickly to get where you want to go to many. I'm just wander round hoping that they'll pick up on some buying signal or some opportunity. Here does interesting. I was listening to a podcast yesterday and they were talking about account planning and planning before you go into accountant. I mean that's something that's just a given. If somebody is missing out on that opportunity to research there's three things you need to know. They need to know about their prospect. They need to know about that company and they need to know about that industry so it does take you know ten minutes or however. It's gonna take take to get that information information when you get on the phone so you know do a quick link din. Where's this person from it. Is there any overlap with anything that you could mention inches so maybe they worked at a previous customer of yours or you know. Maybe there's something that they did. That's really relevant to bring up so you wanna be able to make that connection. Also also you need to know about the company. So what are the recent press releases like what kind of stuff or they'd be on with just as an organization that would be interesting to to to mention or just to factor into how you talk about something and then the industry so are there changes in the industry there things happening in the industry that that are relevant to this conversation. Is there some compliance issue coming up or some regulatory compliance that they have a deadline around that you could aggressor whatever that might be. I'll give me an interesting parallel. You obviously produce a podcast here. Now and many others do the process of purposing podcast. Is you gotta do some background and some preparation. You gotta have some questions in mind you know who you're talking to and find in doubt what they want to talk about and find out what you wanna talk about but so many sales reps who are in effect going to go in and interview somebody and see if there's an opportunity have no clue who they're talking to their just shooting from the hip and trying to start a conversation. Hey how you doing what's going on. Hey guys just wanted to follow up the famous. I'm just following up. Yeah and it's not like there's some reps that are awesome. I mean i've i've certainly had experiences working certain people in organizations it's break but i also get a tremendous amount of that outreach and it isn't getting any better and people complain complain about it like oh all the all the spam that happens on linked in now and all the things that were going on that don't work that seem to be increasing <hes> how how do you stand out from that and you really do that from having a really quality the interaction with your prospect so i mentioned hiring on one of the things that i know a lot of companies are doing now is kind of marva marva a real world test of giving them an assignment and give them something give them a task and see how they complete. It see see how they problem saw. <hes> you know that gives you an idea. I know that there's <hes> an assessment that i often do before talking with people all where we take them through a series of questions and just kind of your what what is an accomplishment there really crowded and you can get an idea of how people thank and how they problem solve. What's what is the problem that you solved for a client before you know that gives you an idea of first off what they think of and and then how they solved it and so that gives you an idea so i think it's coming from a from a hiring standpoint. You can start started off right by making sure that you have somebody with the right mindset of going in want to help your client want to be able to problem solve want them to learn as as they go and develop their skills they go and you've got to find the person now already naturally does that versus you know i. I need a job right. I'm eager. I'll do anything well. I wanna take a moment. Let everybody digest that. Let that sink in and and then we'll do a commercial and come back a couple other questions. About when do we start this. And how do we start this because i think leadership is just with that kind of churn and burn. I think they're just just hiring a lot of people in thrown them out and hoping some of them succeed. I don't think they give them a lot of product knowledge. They give them a lot of sales basic training but i don't think they i teach them how to get in the door and engage with people as you say. I just don't see it. Maybe it's changed. Maybe i'm missing it but based on my interaction. The other end people salespeople approaching me. I don't see a lot of good outreach so let's take a break and we'll come back and see if you can give us some tips about when this should start and how it should start right after this <music> and this is a quick spot for our sponsor the vanilla group people who are committed to give back to customers more than and just great leads.

We only got a few minutes left any tips or ideas of how to start this and how to get the ball rolling. Don't want what i go in and work with organizations <unk>. I i'll ask them like what are some of the challenges. They're dealing with 'cause. Everybody doesn't have the same problem. Some people are really good with prospects. It's once once they get them. But how do you engage them and i find that engagement piece is one of the most difficult because it really takes like i said those socks skills you gotta understand how to get through barriers how to navigate these accounts landscapes gapes and how to get a meeting with the right person to know who the right person is so that you're not wasting your time and how to how to start conversations it really is that yeah and how do you interpret the information that you find on your prospect so i know a lot of the work that we do is teaching teams. You know how to read between the lines of what you discover on prospects how to pull something substantial stansel your research that you're doing than those minutes before your calls <hes>. How do you introduce yourself in a way that you're coming off his appear and they're not they're not automatically shutting you down. Because you opened with an apology or you know some something that it isn't getting you the type of access timewasters they all wanted to. They want you to give him twenty minutes and i'll give you a classic example unlinked him in our new. Everybody wants to reach me reach people so they send these little linked in things and it's all like hey this generic sounding thing i you you know really love what you're doing. The flattery you know kiss kiss kiss love to get to know you and let's have coffee. If i had i would drink a million cups of coffee. If i accepted every one of these things i'd be so wired and i couldn't get any my work done as if we all just have endless insure. Let's just get together and spend an hour together now. Tell me why cut to the chase. I just would like to see people get to the point quicker and then we can decide decide. If there's we should go forward but they they wanted to do these exploratory <hes> get to know you. How are you stuff and i just kind of step. Steph is really annoying and i was speaking at lincoln live about once and i used one of those emails about example of engaging with osama. Could somebody sent me this long email and it's it's like you still don't know what they want me to block off time with them and so somebody from the audience said well look at they got you to read. It wasn't that point. I know it. I'm using it as a bad example. So is that a success you know i. I don't thinks i'll give you another example. We whether in podcasts are videos or youtube or elvis sticking in these ads these messages trying to get you to pay attention to us and how many of us really find social saying stop stop. Stop stop. Stop 'cause rant frank. I'm searching for how to change my tire and here's an ad about toilet paper. It has nothing to what i'm looking for us so it it comes down to how to how to develop your thoughts skills how to make sure that you're doing something to develop those every day. How do you not only when you have a an interaction and a conversation with a prospect. Would you take out of that. That actually adds to your knowledge base that you can reuse and so that's a lot of the work that we do is teaching organization sales organizations how to really fine mm tune their engagement so that they got first off a lot more conversations going lot less sales resistance a lot less prospects going quiet and how to do the right thing so that you can't get in front of your prospects and that they will have that conversation precision with you so i think it's like the art of magic you know. You don't see people doing magic tricks anymore because it just not amazing enough when you see it in person. Maybe it's amazing but when you see it on t._v. Azazel rabbit other head home so what i and i think it's kind of that same thing. It's a magical skill that takes mastery you. You can't just say well. You stick a rabbit and you pull it out of the bottom had got it. Everybody go out and do it. It's not that easy to do the trick. It takes some skill training yeah. It's definitely a it's something that you have to deliberately put effort into to develop those skills so that you you are able a to gain access to executives a lot of the a lot of the complaints that i hear about people don't talk to you and people won't take 'cause it's like they do take calls. They just don't take bad call exactly. How are you not being a bad call for them so that you can have a conversation. I'll give you the classic again after i was a sales rep p._r. For twenty years and i'm old school you know nowadays they just flood you with emails and hope one of them gets through the noise here and you call them back but i found was. I was trained to do it old school. We got him on the phone. Not no reporter in the world wants to be called fifty times a day from fifty publicist pitching story so right away you know you're intruding and they're trying to write a story and we we would work on how to pitch them in like sixty seconds. It's like v. He sees when you go pitch a v._c. On your funding your company you got sixty seconds to get their attention and for them to decide whether or not to continue the conversation. I think so many eight people miss that there's a speed to this as an urgency when you've interrupt. You only got a few seconds of somebody's time. Don't waste it right yeah exactly well. I it's never a waste sitting with you because you definitely <hes> reinforce what i've always believed there is still an out born outbound opportunity. I think to many just giving up on it because it's too easy to just hit that button an email and send on a million of them and hope one of them hits. How did they reach you. If they want to learn more about how you do this this magic art find me on link. Dan of the website is vanilla group dot com follow me on twitter at vanilla group but don't send you a twenty page lincoln request the r- ends with let's have coffee together yeah exactly all right well. We'll look forward to hearing more. I'd love to hear some specific example. I still challenge you one time to try and we should almost do real life example of what a an outbound call all sounds like because i think there is an art to it. I know this art to it. I recognize it when i see it when somebody does come call me for example of somebody something and they do it right. I find myself eagerly engaging with them when they do it wrong. Which most of them do i can't wait to hang up all right well. I can't wait to hear more.

"Wants to know the latest and hottest music in in the airwaves don't be left out. Listen to the Golden State media concepts, music podcasts g keeps you on loop with everything. You need to know how rock hiphop top flooring, and we'll throw in news of your favorite artist concert and tour dates and so much more listen, no further because this is the gold standard in using podcasts. Greetings, good people, the planet earth and the known universe. You're listening to state media concepts, music podcast, the captain Keith an on deck, got some good for you. Sobs NBC's Nicki Menaj. Oh yes. Oh, yes. So as I said before, on deck today group out of Singapore called sobs, they're a dream pop group. They also described herself as uncool music. Other, I disagree with him new group called m. b. o. c.. And of course they came Nash McQueen. So let's get to it. Saab's their new albums caught tell tale signs and they describe it as this album is an Oto falling in and out of love on in the heat of endless summer much left to everyone that believed in right from the beginning. So they also did a video for the song telltale signs. You can catch it on YouTube. So I want to go into the album now. Oh yes. There are trio out of Singapore, so not gonna use the term power power because it's not really that, but it's. Alternative bedroom, pop bedroom, rock dream, pop indie, pop indie. Rock. Jangle pop. Lo fi rock. They also put c eighty six. These are the tags they have on their page on band camp. Yeah. So I gotta find out what see eighty six means that's a new one on me, but I would definitely say it's, there's like a dream, pop indie pop fuel to what they do and I can even go with bedroom pop. Yeah. Oh yeah. Most of these descriptions of their music of pretty accurate. So and the group is comprised of selene autumn on vocals, Jarrett lamb and RAF Rafael on so guitar. And drums. So. So there there is okay. So let me get into the review. So the first song on the on the digital album slash cassette because I haven't seen this on vinyl was available on digital album on cassette so said before it's called vacation. The song starts off with jump jump programming. That sounds muffled the muffler jumper game. He has a slight bell sound in the background. This entropy also sounds like it's a video game and sound effects similar to like the old school classic video game space invaders. Yes, folks. I said it space invaders, and if you don't know, you need to know you can YouTube space invaders is weird that I can say that now two thousand eighteen YouTube space invaders. No, back in the day either you had space invaders and you knew and you would like the baddest kid on the block with this coup advance Atari video game or you didn't have space invaders and you wanted to Beijing invaders and you wanted to go over to Bobby your Johnny OJ or Susan's house to play it Lori. Remember. But yes, basing various. The Qatar that comes in with the ancho has an acoustic sound to it. The baseline is over the acoustic guitar. By the third verse entire song turns up a notch, the keys become clear. You can hear the pamphlet like sound from them. The jumps are no longer muffled and become more organic. The base becomes more dominant navigates the song the song ends with going back to the minute to the minimalist muffled jump panir for about a measure and abruptly ends. The song is quite surprised is quite a surprising contrast. Actually, the music is bright and poppy while the lyrics are actually pretty dark and depressing the about a lady who has fall in love with someone new. But even though she's fall in love with this person, she can't get past on issues like like this, morpheus. I mean she sings about this morph you, but you know, it is what it is. That's what you're feeling. I get it. Okay. You know, hating aspects of your physical body is what does morpheus for those you like wondering what's he talking about? So selene autumn, the singers things about going on vacations so that she can feel better about herself. I mean, the song's about wanting love and I actually loving yourself and feeling like happiness is fleeting. Basically so his, here's the lyrics fall in love with someone new, just feeling a little blue. And when she sees this, she sounds so sweet and dislike cute and innocent, and it's just so charming when you hear her sing this stuff, but I'm reading the lyrics and going on like, whoa, whoa, something like they that big. I mean, they fought me. They gave me the great, lovely music. Just just really pleasant, bright with these like, well, dark lyrics. Let me finish. So I'll go back. The beginning of fall in love with someone new, just feeling a little blue. She's what you want to be, but that's not what you are. Midas morpheus though. Oh, what a dilemma and then you know she stays. She says, I need a vacation badly. Happiness is fleeting. Baby every day is looking. So bleak, your smile won't last. So take a pitcher. Now he'll be handing you, he'll be handing you a flower saying, you've got all the power now watch it all Crumlin your hands control for what it's worth, lacks demand, walk into your air of glory. This emptiness is killing me and every day is looking. So bleak, your smile won't last. So take a picture. Yeah. But when you listen to the song, you don't get their vibe, it's just, you know, you're driving like, yeah, shaking your head. I like that contrast. Like I said, I do. I like it when you can fool me like that. The next time I'm talking about is. Astronomy starts off with a strong with them and leak attire. The have a dreamy like slash shoe gazer sound. The baseline is initially lane in the background of the lead rhythm guitar, the city bass and drums anchor the song, the rhythm guitar, melody plays like a tart and sweet keyboard riff that gives the song and production more flavor. This song is about a relationship that went bad and is over so many wants. However, back she knowledged that the fault that the fault that they're, they are not together, lies with her. She knowledge that the things. That things will never be the same. She's also upset because she knows her former lover knows how she feels and she wants to get back together. She looks up and imagine she sees astronomy clouds, falling down and closing in on her Selena's desperate to get a lover back. But at what cost her own well being and sanity, you know, his lyrics. I can't understand what's going on in your head, but I want you back. Does it make you scared that the fault lies in my bed? Does it make you mad? All the tears? You shed things will never be the same. Always looking for someone to put the blame on. You know, I still want you. Patience wearing thin. It's getting harder to breathe standing all around me. I think strana me clouds in the galaxy closing in on me and it spiraling loose threads ripping off my glitter finery lost my identity, a horrible tragedy. Things will never be the same. Always looking for someone to put the blame on. You know, I still want you. Sinking deeper are. So I fear risking everything I have for you. My dear loose threads ripping up my glitter finery lost my identity, a horrible tragedy. Whoo. Okay. Yeah, that was a fun. I real joy fest there. So the next song is called eastbound twelve. My favorite songs I do like to song eastbound starts off with the video game, like sound affair. Sound like Atari Super Bowl video game from back in the day. So yes, folks, you know, this album's got does album is put Atari on my mind. It's crazy. Lasts for about three seconds and then the guitar bass, and drums all kick in full gear through the rather good tower has a lush texture plane sound Qatar, but the melody play navigates the song with the baseline, the jumps are moderately fast, paced Qatar, plane on this track definitely has a Johnny marr slash Smith's influence in his plane. The plane is definitely the star on this track at the bridge of the song when Salinas things to slow down. The Ben actually does the rhythm. Guitar becomes plucky mellow in the background while the base is on top temporarily. The song picks back up and the league Qatar solo is just as lush, textured a memorable as the beginning of the song. I mean, this song's about a couple on the verge of breaking up while waiting at the train station slain does not want him to get on the next train coming. She wants to talk some more and see if they can try to save their relationship. She just wants to everything to slow down before they head eastbound. So, yeah, I like that. I like that song. So here's the lyrics for the song walking in circles, heavy thoughts are on our chest. Never thought I would be in such a mess. Oh, won't you? Please just stick around just stick around. Just stick around hands in my pockets and feeling kind of down. Don't wanna make a scene, but I'm tired of holding on trains coming our way. I'll make sure I'm okay. Don't turn your back around, slow it down, slow it down. Slow it down, slow it down. Can't we wait for the next eastbound train to come. Let me read do that. Slow it down, slow it down. Can't wait for the next eastbound train to come train to come. I'm doing my best to keep my calm, slow it down, slow it down, stick around, stick around. So I like that saw because it's not. Have you isn't so fatalistic like on the other songs. She's like, hey, there's still something good here we can work this out. I know where the train. I don't wanna go eastbound just yet. Just just talk to me. Let's you know we can get through this. We gotta talk it through. So that's, that's now that song she's positive on. I mean, there's another song the she's positive on too. I'll tell you about that one too. Well, yeah. Let me. There's another song I like she does call party song. I didn't know review that one, but I do like that song. That one is more. I mean, of course, the music on the whole album is upbeat, but that one the lyrics aren't really that dark. You know, she's like, okay, we could party. That's cool. So I, I dig that. The work you're back to the next time. Let's talk about. Yes. So tell tale signs which is also the name of this record. It starts off with a psychedelic enter that sounds like music is being played backwards. The sound is small. I I, in crescendo is into tar bass and drums the baseline dominates navigates the song, the rhythm guitarist, faint during the verses and gets lush with textual guitar tones during the course the guitar on the song have gene texture tone to them, shoe gazer style all the way. So leans voice sounds great and other worldly as well as if she's singing to you from outer space, and you're like, wondering where she is because you can't see her, but you can hear her and you're like, who's this? Great? Where's this voice coming from? You know, where's she? The track is contagious this song about something and being in love with a guy who can't make up his mind on whether or not he wants to be her boyfriend. He keeps sending autumn mixed signals and it confuses and frustrates her. She's looking for a telltale sign. And to see which way to go to see which way he'll go. So I can dig that. So here's the lyrics for this. I've been up has noon my clouds may faces out of you, but I'm waiting for the sun thoughts at being in your arms of the hug material ones you're sent began to fade. I'm tired of feeling so confused. Stop, changing your mind. Telltale signs just want to lie her all day with you. Backseat of your car, count the stars. See that. That's nice. That's dreamy. That's romantic. So selene definitely autumn. You know, the lyrics dealer system vocalist she definitely has made it from size to who she is within the ban. Thought you always knew how I felt when I'm next to you, but you throw it all away. It's not too late to get out of this mess before you disappear. Lose yourself. Again, maybe I'll take the longer way home get a little loss, but at least I know maybe I'll take the long way home anything for you even if I'm cold, break my heart, but at least I know I'm tired of feeling so confused. Stop, changing your mind. Telltale signs just want lie her all day with you. Backseat of your car count the stars telltale signs, telltale signs, telltale signs, telltale signs. So as I was saying before. The. I'm going to see. I mean, so. And maybe I should have just been more observe it when I was looking at this. I mean, when I got this record and. I'll tell you what I mean when I say that. So like the track listing is they -cation astronomy breakfast, all poison. Partisans Sunday, eastbound telltale signs all poison. What? But when you see the song for vacation, astronomy, you think, oh, this is going to be a fun one. No. So we buy time to all poise, man. Do I really want to go there? But yeah, this record. Saab's total scientists are great dream pop Mercker. The has themes of depression, love breakups mental health, and the uncertainty of love. The amazing contrast of lyrics. There are often grim and depressing fused together with brilliantly craft is space slash dream, pop music production makes this digital album slash cassette a must have if you'd like pop music. This is a new group out of seeing him and said before that I could easily see opening up for the Smiths or Morrissey or the cure they're bitter. Sweet pop sensibility is refreshing to hear on scale of one to ten, with ten being the best score and one being the worst. I get this digital album slash cassette on nine. And once again, if you don't see it on Amazon or I tuned, you can definitely get it on bad camping. The cassette is available there. They, they only have one cassette left.

It's uncool, although I disagree with him, I think is very cool. So my favorite tracks offer this record, our vacation, astronomy party song, all poison eastbound until tale sounds telltale. Excuse me. Tell tale signs. And yeah, I made a big deal about how the lyrics really depressing, but what I liked it. When you put it to great upbeat music, it's like the best. So, and that's what this groups like the Smiths are known for and the cure. So when you can do that. Yeah, definitely recommend the records record. I should pick it up if you're into new pop stuff that's left field and still stimulating. So the next group wanna talk about is new group on NBC, and their album is called newborn, newborn outcry. So, and I'm pretty sure that's NBC stands for. So let me read you a little bit about who they are first before we get into review. So trombone tuba vocals, DJ slash producer artists, Courtney Browne, aka knees. Well, it's an e, e y, z. As the London-based musician, what the low brassy presence. He was educated the role academy of music where he gained a scholarship to study bass trombone. Okay. It's pretty cool while studying at the academy, Courtney started collaborating as a producer on projects, both in outside college. It was in the Rams university studio, the Manson room that production dual NPR co, founder Jay Phelps was first established as well as working on defining a direction for his production. He also started to develop his south as a base slash tenor trombone player. By the time he graduated. He worked with Jools Holland pixie Lott, Robin, Thicke, Jessie, J James Arthur rudimentary trike troika James Taylor quartet live Warfield and the mpg haunt kaneohe with a k. prejudice myth brass tracks. Emily, sandy lot of the world outlook orchestra and played in the orchestras of West End musicals The Lion King wicked and five guys named Moe. Trumpeter artist, Jay Phelps Vancouver on Canadian with an instantly recognisable warm, projecting tone. He was tutored by the city's top jazz and classical trumpet trumpeters and distinguish himself early on as the youngest bandleader in the Bank oover the national jazz festivals history. That's impressive. Excellent. And nine nineteen ninety nine eight aged seventeen Jade move. Jay moved to London determined to immerse himself in the jazz scene. Jay has performed and recorded with veritable who's who in national jazz and famed artists such as Courtney pine, Andrew hill. What Marsalis Ray Brown. Jon Hendricks. Sheet weights, George Benson, Jimmy column. So John dankworth gene to salt. Then Rollins guy Barker and he wind house, Charlotte church, Hugh Masekela gesture mak-. So wait till each scotch, onyx, Scotto, Bano. Geneka orchestra currently Phelps, his releasing second solo album, free as the birds. That's Roper. Dope records actually came out this past March, and then I'll Nova sneezy or just needs an e, e y, z and jazz nickname for Courtney met in two thousand fourteen and not only saw each other on the same recording sessions from time to time, but began to make music together after noticing share a passion and production and electric music. The group took some time to get started with their very schedules and other John Rich's, especially Courtney finishing his studies at the Royal Academy of music, but they worked through it and the dedication to where is now they have recently completed their debut album with m. b. o. c. newborn outcry. This London-based do are making cutting edge alternative hip hop and combining many Amish found in the mainstream version of John Ryan. But with an with an understanding of jazz and other sounds from around the world, they combined their talent to production brass instruments and singing, and have grown as the ban that has created their unique sound imagined. Outcast the Neptune's enersen pack and parliament, funk dog are had a baby. That's a good way of describing. Although I will say this album is more jazz than hip-hop, but there's there's definitely truth in that statement in that description that they give you when you look them up at their? Yeah. When you do research on NBC. So the car, the records, cool. It's got the two musical partners standing across the looking at each other, and they both have on white mask like you're going to opera. Then like on top of roof somewhere, and it's like a silhouette to picture and also like it's a blurred picture also like silhouette at the same time, it's yeah, it's, it's. Yeah, it's really cool. That's the best way I can ascribe the picture of the album. So the first song talk about called cookie jar, one of my favorite tracks so I can see. Say a grinding Oregon comes in. I. Synthesizer loop that sounds like dialing on the computer goes back and forth. Trumpets sale into the song and starts relaying back and forth in the song before the vocals come in, jump rope. The jump Grammy has a snare claps snare claps to it. The songs like a double entendre for eating cookies out of an actual cookie jar. And for turning on stimulating your girlfriend? The girlfriend and the cookies are both his joyful addiction. I mean, that's my take on. But it's like a really jazzy soulful song when you hear it. I mean, it's very jazzing and you can, and the soul is nicely laced laced into the song and. He sings. When I opened the cookie jar, ain't no talent ain't no telling while I'm gonna put up the cookie jar. When I open the cookie jar, ain't no telling tell them when I'm going to put up the cookie jar every time I go into the kitchen kitchen late at night. I'm searching for bike just to make me feel alright feel alright. Nothing bad with this dinner was last night. It needs to be sweet with little crunch. That's how much. I mean, that's how I munch. Excuse me. And and in the lyric, nothing bad with dinner. I'm not quite sure if that's actual lyric. That's where I was able to transcribe that. That one verse right there might be something different. Can't can't sleep. I can't breathe without putting my hands around the top and bottom open now, hear you scream and shout. When I opened the cookie jar ain't no. Ain't no telling when I'm gonna put the cook when I'm going to put up the cookie jar. When I open the cookie jar, ain't no telling ain't no telling when I'm gonna put up the cookie jar. Can't sleep. I can't breathe without putting my hands around the top and bottom open now, hear you scream and shout open up. The cookie jar. Ain't no telling ain't no telling when I'm gonna put up the cookie jar. When I open the cookie jar, ain't no telling ain't no telling. So I mean, and that just repeats over and over again, you know, and. It's really catchy. And when. He singing. I mean, there's his voice is almost a little bit. It's like a. Got the whole choir stone. Sexy, low voice, whisper, almost going, but it's very, very catching, and you're like, really into the psalm, the trumpets really do drive that tracks. So I like that about the song. It's really cool. And then the song newborn outcry. So that's basically like instrumental track, but it's really hard to describe just instrumental tracks while do my best, but this track. So it starts off with the English lady announcing the name of the song album. Title. The keyboard opens up with single, not rhythms, a muted, trumpet start playing melodic rhythm. They're almost feels like a music scale warm up, even though you know that it's not. This rhythm repeats for a second time. It starts to echo the jump programming, have a steady hip hop feel to them. The drums play like a pulsing heartbeat, they makes you want to dance. The meter trumpet is the anchor of the song trombone slide in and out. It makes one last memorable appearance towards the end of the song. The trombone that is, this is a great Ishmael track the blending of contemporary jazz and hip hop fuse. Well, on this track. So. Once you tell you that now. Now, the song I like, no, that doesn't have j. or Courtney singing is. LS g. now, no, you think what? Liver Swick and Gill. No thought that two four second. But now it's stands for love. So good featuring Ella Frank starts off with jazz organ, signing keys with elephant, harmonizing along with the trumpet. The trumpet are matching each other with their phrasing. Actually, the Trump takes Lee when Frank stop singing the harmonizing, a thick money. Sonnen baseline rolls out into the on into the song alongside the trumpet plan. The keys are layered, the jazz organ advocates. The song deluxe in the song are a little abstract for what I can gather the songs about the idea of love being so good. But in the reality, both people involved are yearning for love that will last forever that they don't have. L. l. a. Frank. She fits the psalm perfectly with vocals, even though the lyrics are abstract. This is still one of my favorite songs in CD. And she sings, we never meant to hurt each other, but our love so good. We'll find the time for one another because I love so good a lifetime you'll be waiting for for her doubtless love you can see in his sold out is a longing yarn for so long. She's been waiting for love our friend of time. You can see it in her old soul. The loved won't die. I never meant to hurt each other, but I love so good will find the time from one another because I love so good a lifetime, you'll be waiting for her doubtless love. You can see in his sold out is a longing yearn for so long. She's been waiting for love our friend of time. You can see it in her old soul. The love won't die. Love on die. Love on time. Love on by won't die. So I mean, either song, it's cool. And then. Let's see. Which track the last check. I'll talk about. So sure myself starts off with a trumpet and trombone. The trombone is playing high and low notes while the Trump is actually phrasing the chorus. The production is a cross between trap music and jazz literally. So it was weird hearing that, but I like it. It was cool. It's different. So it's caught myself and here's the lyrics. I don't need. You meant when I mad at myself, I don't need a match when I'm guessing myself. I don't need your class when I'm bad by myself. I don't need nobody. I know I don't need you. I don't need you mad when a mad at myself. I don't need a match when I'm guessing myself. I don't need your class when I'm babba myself. I don't need nobody. I know I don't need you. So and then, oh trip on the corner site. Now, got me. Dilemma. Had the cheer setback in me and pain. They multiply Medicaid on a new high, no wings history with, no, I'm going to then I'm going to sit on your ass. Take all the diamonds and dash, then I'll be rid of you how you just sift through the trash. So once again, I mean, I like this of the lyrics vocals become incoherent as certain points of the song. So, yeah, it's, it's, it's a good record. So. This. So this is a great like jazz trap hip hop soul album. I didn't realize to play to pay even closer attention to the record. It's different the way these two guys, these teams blend, the John was together. They do it very. Massive early. That is a word masterfully. Obviously we'll go with that, but here's the thing though, and it's very reminiscent to me of west anyway, heartbreak where you're using these vocal effects to sing, maybe because yourself conscious and you think people want like your voice, but actually a lot of times now minds of taking away from your voice. And so that's a complaint I have about this record. The biggest complaint we'll talk some more about that after this break. Giving a beach not close enough. So that's base between you. Who. Who's the way all dance and sway into the muse girl their body and how you move. And every time you cross my girl lose Alexa, play the country heat playlist. Okay. With Amazon music of voices.

We're currently reviewing the new jazz record in the scene. Stands for the name of the actually newborn outcry. So I was saying. You know, I get that. Maybe you're not used to singing, and so you use like vocal effect for buffer and lot of times sometimes sound better than other times it won't. So I've, I hear this record. That's my biggest complaint is because you using that vocal effect on your voice from time to time on different tracks. I can't understand the lyrics to what you're saying just doesn't sound good, and I feel like, well, if you just took that off, you better. That was the biggest problem I have with west is eight await state. I await heartbreak. I felt like it's a great record and is a great record. And it would be it'd be an even better record if he was taken that affect off of his voice. So. Yeah, that was my. That's my my big. The biggest issue I have with this new album NBC's Newport outcry is that that sometimes legs are kind of abstract incoherent so you can have some lyrics and I can deal with some of that. But if his abstract and incoherent, then that would be an issue. So now let's talk about what I like about the record. So. This is an amazing record imigrants blends and I'll goes Pacific. I'll go even more specifically what is blending, you know, you're blending as jazz music together with tribal rhythms, Neo, soul, hip hop, an trap music. So believe that this might be a I in that regard. And like I say, fos little short when the door relies too heavily voice effects for their seeing tracks with exception of the Ellis g. saw love. So good petering Ella, Frank, j Phelps and Courtney Browne would be better off just like singing without the special voices meant that special effects that they use in their voices. Just take away from everything. I already said that so, but having said that this CD, this is the CD as definitely worth picking up though because of the soulful and positive energy. It's still provides. For millennia who may be hesitant about checking out jazz music who is really into today's modern hip hop. This is actually a gateway into jazz music for that money. Oh, and his or her generation. So in that regard, it works and it works well, but not just for millennials, if you're somebody who's just say, you love hip hop. But you know, like the trap sound you really into urban music, but you don't. You know, you've heard mixed things about jazz like, well, you know. Should I really get miles Davis or you know, or should I be listening to, you know, Kenny, g. and Najji. I mean, there's definitely a conversation that have about, you know, was jazz and what's not so, but if you're someone who wants to dip their feet in just a little bit just to see what you think. This is a good record for that. Definitely. Because. The trumpet and trombone plan is superb on this record. So on a scale of one, ten with one being the worst for rating and Tim being the best? I this out a seven. My favorite tracks are cookie jar, newborn outcry, Ellis g. aka low. So good featuring on the Frank. Hi fi h. I f. i. big, bang, chuckles, insanity and myself. So, yeah, it's definitely I have album. It's great. I wish they would just extensive lion Elton is now is not what the CDs so. That's this appointment to actually. And now I'm even more intriguing hears about these lyrics couldn't transcribe them. You're definitely if you like jazz and you want something different jazz. This is a good album and a half. And once again, I can get us out on. Let's say for a second, I know where I got it from. Let me see other places because I know people like to do their shopping everywhere. But they're on rope adult Brecher, and that's a great record label. Out of New York. They can be very about guard with the artist. So I think that's one of the things I like about them. They've been around for a long time. So looking. Okay. So you can't get this record at Amazon. Someone to double check on that. And let's see. Apple. Apple music. See. Wanna see if it's bailable there as well. So they use the usual suspects music streaming. Our Spotify tidal apple music, Google play. Amazon actually way I'm prime and Bank camp. So those are the usual suspects. If you're into streaming. And. So I can see. I don't see the NBC's with apple music. It might be, but I'm not seeing that, but it's definitely the Amazon and I'm pretty sure. Actually, it's probably with. I tend to Google play. Well, definitely Amazon and I know it's definitely available on. Band can't. That's where I got all of it was on band camp dot com page. So. Enough on that. But yeah. Can check it out there. And now it's a. Talk about miss Nicki Menaj I knew albums call Queen this fourth studio record. And the okay, I can imagine. I'm definitely a fan of the cover. And if you all seen the cover. You know why she is laying on a branch almost like an Cappos and she's she's basically naked. I mean, she's got like a. Nefer tedious, Cleopatra like Egypt. Sharon costume on the covers are up in other places. But yeah. It's nice. It's nice picture. And she's claiming your Queen them. So. And she's got this polls just looking out. So it's cool especially on a branch or this big this big? Yeah. Tree branch, realize real sturdy or. And it's like maybe like an orange background behind her plans with their skin. So. The album. What do I start? The first track is called Ganga burns. The song starts off with a clip, so be stripped down Qatar, Coit a steady based drown with snares that sprinkle in and out of the song the calypso John be anchors to song the stripped down Rocketeer rhythm in the song actually also navigates to song along with clips star Trump programming towards the end of the song is like a clean distant, almost clean. Yeah, fuzzy rocket tar. Is the same Qatar within from before this time? Yeah, it's about the other ATar. This song is about Hunecke wants to remind you that there is no female competition hip. She is still the best in that the other female rappers with one. She shouldn't get, nah, shouldn't get ahead of themselves. They can never compare to her success and her enduring career. So braggadocio here's some of the lyrics Heo as the world turns the blunt burns who you get in that Mickey watch them sensor. Kitties, learn fashion icon, Audrey Hepburn move keys, but you hoes got one turn. You hoes get one turn. Yeah, you get one turn one earn. I I straight all these witches censor out with one Perm. Whoever guests them, none of my concern. But see the Lord showed me dreams to confirm. They don't went to witchdoctors to bury the Barbie, but double bag kill, which is sensor bury the body and that and that go from anybody. Where I live off at, you'll be thoroughly. Sorry. I could wage war or I can come in peace Gandhi all my powers back now. I'm scared. Zombies. Bring the heat to her says limb aint talking Kalonge Ida facet and prayed had to cleanse my body abstaining from sex had to Zimmer body I given. So don't ask. I don't let my body guy, it'd be king status to give to give them my body. He gotta be king stars, get in your body. Heke censor because Queen is what I am body. Burn, burn burn. Gajah, Brian. Yeah, guys should burn burn guys. Yeah, every time I get high, I just think about you every time I get high. Just think about you that repeats. Yeah, you can't wear Nikki wig and then be Nikki. That's like a. Fat brother. Simpson thinking he can be biggie, one rough right now you deem excess was e. Clever line video you high. Now you just giddy you may wonder what beat now you got a brother named Jay. Now you say. You got about three six now you Andrea, you put a part in your fate. Yeah. Yeah. You not. You put in your excuse me. You put a part in your fate. Yeah, you Nasr bay. You gotta have a real secure. Got to work for that. If it's really your passion, which the world which you give the world for that. Unlike a lot of these holes, whether wacko lit at least I can see every rap. I spit put my blood sweat and tears in perfecting my crafts. So every teams, number one, pick in the draft. You could bring anybody whether man. Pick pick a day? I'm Kobe. Katy Perry pick a k.. Gone Jaren Gajah. To make your high just think of you. And then I see, I see. I see. I see. I see to my surprise. I saw you is the nights. I cry repentant of the lies to my nine and on and on and on and on to my nine. Oh, burn baby? No, no, no, no. That sounds funny. Me just saying that. Majesty's. One of my favorite tracks on here features Eminem and labyrinth starts off with lab singing the hook and an acoustic piano in the background playing single note. His singing has a whispering tinged with a high range and it works his opening vocals, let you know that this song has seventies pop soul vibe to it, at least it doesn't actually, until Eminem comes in. And when Nikki comes in the whole melody changes to snare, drum and bass kick drum bass lash with cintas, has a vibrating feel to it. This part of the music only comes in. In her versus in Eminem's. Once versus are over. It goes back to Lebanon cores actually lava's course and is very reminiscent of electric light orchestra's Mr.. Blue sky. Yes, folks. I said, when I was hearing. His part of their production, the intro to the song, which also becomes a mainstay in the song and advocates it. It reminded me of yellows, Mr. blue sky, just the way the piano was some of the singing phrasing weird, right? But, hey, very interesting. Lavers piano is the mainstay say Eminem's co-production, celebrity and Eminem both produced this track. His co-production with the kick drum snare Texas on up notch lab towards the end of the saw the nowadays changes to a steady base drum pulsing with the bluesy phone signal behind behind it as Nikki Menashe delivered to last verse. We'll talk some more about this song after this break. Is ron. Is. About it. Kid fun. Somebody. Alexa play hits from Queen. Okay. Amazon, music of voices.

And we're back once again, listen to Golden State media concepts, music pack, music podcast, good people are the planet earth and the known universe always so good to be with. You always talk about human is. So as I said before. Nikki deliver last verse. Why said towards the end of the song, the melody changes to a city based Drome pulsing, the busy busy phone signal behind it as Nick delivers last verse, this song's about wanting to get with Nikki and how sexually. Assist means about once Nikki sexually, how once they get a taste, they can't handle it. It's also about how Nikki Hannah's offer female haters dismissively. I mean, that's the take from the song. Majesty. And by the way, this is one of the best versus I've heard him in MD win years. He, he killed her. He murdered a, he. Yeah, minimus is definitely still there. Just I just think a lot of his newer stuff. Just seems like. He may not be as inspired as he once was. But when you're young and you're coming from the Troy and you come from like a place where you don't have much and you get a chance to do what you've been dreaming, do you got a lot to say and yard have lot of fire inside of you burns burns bright and he he did it so, but yeah, on this verse, he he definitely has something to say, and it was it was it was great. Yeah, one of my favorite tracks just because the production house put together the music. Like I said, the different influences reminded me of air low with the piano playing and harmonising labyrinth. And then the be changes when Mickey start in and how it just goes, and then starts ramming really fast, like tongue twister, like really fast, and you're just like, whoa, what just happened. So here's a some lyrics, whatever you say, mismatch mismatch. Do whatever you want, you can have from me. Oh, I want your love. Just lead me on. Won't give it up. Hey, 'cause I'm a sucker for you. Boom. Shiner Langan like shake. Yeah, laboratories having some fun when he did this song and Nikki comes in and it gets serious.

So that was clever lamb when he said that you ain't dealing with a freaking featherweight. I used to medicate until I get a freaking bellyache and now I'm finished step on the pedal. Don't want to ever break. I want to celebrate to a level that I l avait dementia with the parent. The mother lover detonate. I wanna make acapella away.

'cause you 'bout to slow down, slow die, slow jussie as disease die, slow. And then just more of the ho- dis dis. Lau summer. Okay. All right. She wants the dice low. Got it. Another favorite track. I like in this is Barbie. Dreams. And you heard about this song before the came out. So it starts off with the sound of drumsticks as a count off the sun then goes from sneer jump to a blue tick attire link. He music is actually taken from the toys Biaggi's just playing dreams. The tar rhythm along with a snare Johm anchor the song. This is one of my favorite songs in a wreck. And like I said, NICKY, basically today's popular male rappers. She basically says that she was down to hook up, but the male rappers that she names have too many hang-ups. So she wants to hook up, but you got too many hang-ups towards the end. The sun, the beaches completely thumping, bass, drum with the Sarah in the background, so happens pretty cool. Actually, this part of the song turns into trap music. You hear Nikki's classic speed flow as she gets more graphic about having sex when she finally finds the right, you know the right dude. The song is catchy and funny and should definitely be a club hit for her. So. And here's some the lyrics. You know, our PD big classic crap. I'm looking for a brother to give some babies, a handful of easy, sprinkle Davies, man. I ain't got no type like. Jimmy Swaley Swaley. But if he can't screw three times a night piece, I tried to screw fifty four power for our all that brother wanna do talk powerful hours, be the kitty up, make sure it's a KO step your banks like you're moving that. Yeah, yeah. Can you imagine it? This was a news broadcast and the anchorman was reading the teleprompter. Priceless. Somebody go make sure correct. Okay, though, I heard she think I'm trying to give the cookie to quavo. They always want to beat it up. Goon up the kitty man. Maybe I should let him out a tune-up to Katie all these bowel challenged brothers lying in cramped man. These ferry what, but they stay. I m my crap, Drake worth one hundred. Millie. He always buying me stuff, but I don't know if the. The kitty, or if you crying and crap, mixed BMI Dino's be having the duck them. I used to pray for these times like this. Face. But when I had to. Screw him. Man. Uzi is my baby. He ain't taking l. but he took it literally when I said, go to hell used to mess with young. I address in this crap, see caught him in my dressing room, stealing dresses in crap. I used to give this brother with. I used to give this with the list test and crap how you want the kitty can't say you're s.'s in crap. Then the hook is dreams of. Screwing one of these little wrappers. I'm just playing, but I'm saying, you know, but Barbie dreams of scream one of these little wrappers. I'm just playing, but I'm saying, so that goes on. I mean, it's real catchy when you hear it, I don't do it Justice. It's a good song. I like to song it's very funny and humorous. And she just took biggie Smalls track and she just flipped it and used a female perspective. And that's the brilliance of what Nicki Minaj is. That's the brilliance of her when she does things like that. Her her flow, her Kadish of exceptional. It's a, I mean, there's more to this, so. I want to say. I remember we used to have a crush on special Ed. She says, shut designer because he made out a special Ed. You wanna scream and you gotta give some special. Yeah. Okay. Yeah, I'm gonna stop on that. Yeah, I'm gonna stop on that. So I'm done reading that. 'cause you know. I'm over here. Doing the clean edit version and it's and it's kind of a struggle. Oh man. Okay. What else. Oh yeah. Song it's longer towards the end. 'cause she changes the flow, whatever. I want to say about that. I haven't here real quick. Listen. Already spoke about that. Okay. So. This album. Mickey nauseous, Queen is a good hip hop pop rock with on trust issues. Relationships going arrive, villainy sexual fantasies, female and Parham empowerment, Amazon, materialism. So the only problem is that all these things do not get executed properly. It's like a fifty fifty split in that regard. So Nicki Menaj is she's flawless with delivery cadence. She can rhyme and I would just love to see her do a record where it just got really where she dug deeper just beyond the surface. She made a record for her crowd and for fan base and they should love it. Unskilled one to ten. I give it a six and a half. The favorite tracks on this album are Gandara burns majesty featuring Eminem labyrinth Bobby dreams. A hard white thought. I knew you between the weekend Chun Li rich sex featuring Lil Wayne and run and hide seal like rich, six. She's talking about, you know, women should respect themselves and don't be would've broke, dude, you know. And if you screw you, I'm going to tell people Mattel, but then a little wind comes in and he's like mumbling in his just. He just about context from the track, and then it's just it's just, you know. I like this song because you like, you know. Respect yourself ladies. Don't be with Debbie, and I agree with that, but you know, every, you know and she says, there's no such thing as broken, handsome. Okay. All right. I'll even go with that. But the problem is though, is that. Every man is not rich, every man and every good man has the potential to be rich. That's all subjective on what you define as wealth. You know, if you have a good knowledge of self and your good person and you're responsible and you're doing your thing, you take care of your business. You know, that could be perceived as rich. So my point is, is that she gives miss she gives off mixed messages and so I like the rich sect song and I don't like the song but put it there because it is important to tell women, no, you're worth and she's doing that in a roundabout way, but I think she can be more clear about that. And too often she gets caught up in the materialism aspect of of who she is in her persona. And that can often be like the wrong message. But yeah, those are my favorite tracks. Six, six and a half out of ten. They're definitely, you know there's something that sounds like like I like a lot. Like I said, she's very witty. I, I'd love to see her do a record where. Lyrically it's just all just lyrics and it's all about taking me on the surface talking about what it took for her to make you end. Just talking about her perceptions of, you know, a of what's really going on here. I'll love to see that. So. You know. Women shouldn't have to choose hip hop to be either sexy and sex oriented in rap or just smart you. They should be. You can have a balance of both the there isn't just one type of MC. Hip hop is so much more diverse in varied than than thinks it is so, but good people the planet earth and the known universe. Thank you for listening to state media concepts.

Big and small issues were shared of course and I brought Dr Anti James Our guest from show six ninety five back back to address the comments and we addressed issues such as autism and open heart surgery and tonight and Achey knees line disease and more and friends. I'll tell you randy is a paradigm shift Dean doctor he continued. Can you just ramp up as we talked to the point where if you're short on time I'd encourage you even just to go to the twenty five thirty minute mark and listen from there as you really just starts getting profound with some of overall messaging here. This is not a prescriptive telemedicine. Listen type thing but what you'll hear is this common threat of addressing our foundation instead of always trying to zero in on an ailment here or there. That's manifesting which symptom ultimately which means the overall message here gives us all hope intangible tangible methods that we can all address you can connect more with Dr Jane that his practice at true life medicine dot com or our new show together the true life show just got a great review their and our industry changing alternative turned to traditional health insurance true life protect medical cost sharing.

We should have always had for those who just want some assurance in case of big issues true life protect dot com. I rarely promote a lot of other podcasts but I'm going to now the true life show devoted to getting you fully functioning so you have the energy and clarity inability to do all you want need to do. It's not a health show. It's a get your work done brilliantly currently in have joy doing when you're done show. I'm also the ghost along with Dr Randy James so the true live show you get it. Wherever you get your podcasts okay yeah well here? We hit the comments again of the question I posted what does the health issue. You're currently dealing with or have recently overcome so I bring you now Dr Randy James Okay so we have a lot of people who who submitted a lot of things and brought you here today Dr James To heal everybody ready. Let's do this. Let's do this all right well. I'm just going to start reading through them and I think we'll hear a similar thread read from you as we go down T._I._V._O.. Here talked about his son having autism and I ask about that you know what are they doing. He says long story but they're going through actually addressed in the school district what they're doing in school school programs he gets. I don't even know what is that S.. S. P. Speech Speech Therapy Physical Therapy O._T.. At school after school he gets speech. You know I mean autism right. Gosh so I'm thinking about the the big this huge epidemic of autism that has washed over the country and of course it brings in the vaccine controversy and the and so firstly I would speak to the great the pain and concern of parents and as parents we ourselves in in you know I've got I've got autoimmune frustrations in my own family and in so addressing first of all the idea that it that we do not know that the human body is infinite and it therefore there are infinite ways it can go wrong but what I what I would do is I would approach anybody in the autism spectrum which by the way I think as we look at this issue from top down and I would look at Kevin and I would look at at at this family and say we are all on the spectrum yeah that nobody out there has a perfect brain with perfect thinking everybody can be a little too anxious or little too focused or little to Taipei or a little too type whatever and it it's very frustrating. When we live in a world that wants to put our brains in a box and say this is normal and that's not normal and so it is right to think through the lens of spectrum and to not get all caught up in labeling something as this or that okay well that being said parents clearly no and say well my child something is not right whether it's subtle or whether it's obvious and severe and it sounds like this particular family has already been availed to the state program which I'd say are great and in that context then and what doesn't tend to get addressed is what's going on metabolic Louis so as you're doing speech path and occupational therapy and all of those things my thought is to also think about the underlying metabolic dysregulation dysregulation that are likely going on and so number one? We don't know what is exactly going on. It's infinite and into this world this foggy world of autism what is going on in that child's brain. We have a lot more knowledge than we did. You know even ten years ago so from the functional ends I would say it is worth in and of course here unite talked. We can't diagnose treat over the radio in this particular family who knows what's going on but I I would say there's enough data. It's worth right off the bat to and I struggle. How specific do we get but cutting out the processed foods? Uh and you've heard me say there's a million times I would for sure not do dairy or gluten or corn products or soy products. Those are the kind of the top four food processing problem areas and so right off the bat I would do I would say yeah cross the line into a hundred percent elimination for one hundred days hundred days hundred percent and of course that might be in this particular they might have issues where they just won't eat other food and I would say yeah I I know and I've got a very picky son as well but whatever it takes you get one hundred days hundred percent of not doing those kinds of processed foods and then in our practice you know I think there's great value in looking at labs what is going on with Vitamin Windy with the OMEGAS and the other area I would look at is heavy metals. You know and especially if there's been <hes> teeth cavities if there's medals on in the teeth if you if you live in a certain area where are we all heard about Flint Michigan well how how excellent is your water supply in what about this unique individual with those water supplies and to answer the vaccine question in my mind. There is no definitive I answer in this in this world and it's very controversial and I would say if you approach it through the Public Health Lens we can prove that vaccine's are not harmful. If you approach it through the Individual Lynn's and then you can never prove that it's not harmful in this unique individual on that particular day in this infinite context so for for this family as you're doing speech path and all those is kind of things. I think it's it's easy to say look aggressively at an elimination diet for three months or one hundred days and reassess almost all autism spectrum people have G._I.. Inflammatory responses to something in their environment and so it's a place it brings me to feel like you're saying it is obviously it's always individualized but we're talking about somebody here who has a higher propensity you to suffer from the normal things of kids and we we have kids who range in age gender personality styles whatever and one of them does fine with less sleep does does better you know. Doesn't everybody needs good sleep it yeah some people that doesn't doesn't seem to bother him as much or same thing with gluten or sugar or dairy or whatever and then but we've had kids you have one I had one who had epilepsy amend. That's things that we did for him his wellness to try to bolster it where militant compared due to the other ones and that's what it took because he had a deficit new you're talking autism here or whatever somebody may have and that they have. They'RE GONNA struggle at a greater degree from the normal things that we all be better oft avoid but so in a sense the the analogy is they are the Canarian the coal mine so you know at a certain level down the canary is going to suffer in that context more than the human but it gives the human and the right kind of vision we could say I would argue that this autism epidemic is kind of a canary in the coal mine and instead of oxygen. The environmental issues going on are the kinds of things that we talk about the food situation in America is just disastrous the industrialized food production system in how we raise our animals and how we're producing this food and people have a false idea that oh it's modern in the F._D._a.. And the government is protecting us and it's just not the case not that granted it is clean it is it is better than a could have maybe been in the past in the past. There were other problems with other kinds ends of of hygiene issues but we have so many new chemicals introduced into our society year after year that don't go through testing. We have the situation like Flint Michigan and everybody's on a water spectrum and so vis young boy. I assume he's a boy is he's the canary in the coal mine in the tip over plop them into this thing we call the spectrum in and the most sensitive instrument in your entire body is your brain and his brain is perceiving. Something is not right and there's an inflammatory process is it because of just gluten in for Heaven's sakes no we're not saying that but gluten in the context of X._y._Z. Vaccine in the context of maybe he didn't get enough sleep that night in the context of got too many fruit loops that morning for breakfast and also maybe his friend was mean to him and he had an emotional response to that and then one day he tipped over one day. He was fine in the next. He's not that's so scary for apparent. It's it's so frustrating to try to get help in our society and in our society is responding with the appropriate speech path and physical therapy and all those kind of things but if you don't go underneath the hood it into the metabolism. I don't think you're going to have as much success as you otherwise could. which as we go into the other some of the other comments here I think is a threat? That's going to be true for all of us well. Here's one right here tempt tougher. He says since my open heart surgery a couple years ago I get out of breath really easy and wear out quickly. If I overdo it it can take my body up to three days to recover. Also I've gained about thirty pounds from the medications that are supposed to be eh helping me well. I'll give you a little back story. I know Tim I'm GonNa Guess He is early fifties at most very young yes so for this to have happened. Obviously is not the norm of what we think governor. This was an active guy joyful guy and now here he here he is and it's easy to be in that scenario and I think well it's downhill from here and that's don't especially when you're early fifties right and so I'm going to assume that there was a congenital problem that this wasn't a consequence of drastic. You know smoking all the time now okay so you know the guy so so here's a congenital issue and he needs a heart valve replacement or something like that and then so on one hand we would say okay well. This is mechanical right. Something is wrong and that's right. Say Thank God we live in America. We've got insurance and surgeries and and amazing stuff and otherwise is theoretically tim would be much worse off that the heart would quit working a five hundred years ago he would have just died in his forties or something like that so but here's a young active guy who's in his fifties and he you know like the rest of I want to look forward to a productive life into his mid eighties and go skiing hiking and all of that and so in this recovery mode and so so what I think I can offer is what that sounds like and we only have a few sentences and is in many people in the in the face of post surgery so there's a stress and trauma or other people in in a state of chronic chronic reaction of chronic stress chronically clean in a I feel like I just had surgery sort of place whether in their mind or even in their body and so if we use Thames Lens to say man I had this big thing and it feels like it tipped me over and even if saw were several months post up the doctors have said yes you need to go walk and do physical therapy and get your body back in that kind of thing what this sounds like is that that when he says it takes me three days to recover from two mile walk that I would have done easy before and so that brings up the context of the the idea of adrenal strain and so hormonally whether it's from the trauma of scalpels apple or the trauma of a bullet wound your body will respond to that in a way in as trauma that the body doesn't know the difference between the scalpel in a bullet wounds so it is now responding in at least eastern part all of us on the scale or the spectrum of a fighter flight response like oh my gosh. This hurts pain always does that or my expectations aren't met. I'm under stress because I can't do that or. The real feeling that he wakes up next day and he should be recovered but he's as tired as he was right after the exercise so exercise now is exhausting as opposed to exhilarating. That's the key word and so then I would say tim. I don't know if this is what's going on in you because you've also got these medicines going on but for many people out there whether the insult is a surgery or a bad day at work or ten years of of dealing with maybe an autism or especially the child that they're that exercise interns into something that you are recovering from especially if it goes into the two or three day mark if most of us were going to run or something like that and have a few hours of recovery in in wake up the next day ready to do it again in so tim is not in that place and that makes me think the adrenal system is sort of running on fumes and that's where people will say. I'm just OUTTA gas. I can't recover. I'm just kind of tired all the time and that's where I'd say in his case the the the if we say the fighter flight system in medically speaking the sympathetic nervous system has been turned on so much. It's have having a hard time turning off the opposite opposing para sympathetic nervous system which on one hand you have fighter flight and on the other hand you have the opposite of that that is rest and digest in intense case I'd say but rest effectively he's not resting effectively where his energy returns and there's recuperation and restoration. He's staying in the exhausted place so what I would what would actually tell him is now is not the time because many Americans say you know what I'm just going to. I got an exercise. I'm going to work. You would say this Kevin. I'm just going to work harder and really pull myself out of this and I would say no don't do that. Go backwards a little. Don't not exercise. Don't not do your P._T.. And those kind of things but for another few weeks or maybe even months your exercise might be the soft stuff the yoga the Taichi pilates body stretching breathing those kinds of things and the emphasis would be on in his particular case. I'd say we need to look at sleep. Is he sleeping well. Is there any worry about oxygenation during the sleep. Does he have a silence silence sleep apnea so those those within be the medical questions I would start well and that's what I go and wonder about because this is the consummate place to be whether you're regardless of age but you have a handicap app you have a disability is what he has and that we start slowing down and that's the scary thing because we know that that just is a continual path of of slowing down and so we're coming around going I would obviously I'm looking at how can I feel myself south. How can I recover? How can I do things to give myself as you have to say the best chance? Give my body the best chance to stop the reverse. Stop the decline if not too if not reverse industries as well and it's an and that's so in a sense if we use the idea of spectrum we're all on the spectrum of incapacity disability and if you're if you're scales at zero then that's a person we'd say they're dead. They got zero capacity acidy but even somebody who's a quadriplegic or something like that. They're breathing. They're thinking they're talking. They have capacity and then over on the physical side. I mean I can't dead lift however many pounds so I'm incapable I have a disability my ability to ride a bike a he'll compared to you I am disabled and I'm not so disabled as compared to a dead guy over here but we're all on the spectrum and we all WanNa be moving the needle forward with increased capacity and capability and Tim has has had this surgery so that's he took a hit and now he's recovering but we're all on the scale with him but I like how you said it's not that he doesn't need to go out and say okay. I got a ramp things things up. I'm going to run a marathon or lift weights no but you didn't say stay on the couch rush still have to do those things to help the body how the best chance increases capacity right continue it and that's where if he was a patient then I'd say okay let's what is the vitamin D and what is the the underlying metabolic situation going on how's the inflammation Wisey on these meds and that would be the individual questions and thanks these sponsors for bringing us today.

Here's one on the you've got of course a cute things and devastating things and things that are not this would be on a lesser scale. My Gosh Mason then <hes> BASSAC here. He says ten itis he says I'm a drummer and it's entirely my fault and there's nothing you can do but live with the constant noise. My brain has decided to create. He says I've had it for forty. One years too many concerts concerts as a kid says I invested in some nice ear monitors awhile back which allows me to enjoy the full sound without further damage but yeah that's one in my little understanding of that seems like people get it and they figured that's it for life life so let let's clarify because people often confuse that with tendinitis so he he said tonight is which means ringing your buzzing in the years and yeah he's a drummer and you know hard music when he was younger and so in all likelihood for for him this unique individual the con the the reason for that as noise trauma so people in the military gunshot gunfire and when it happens mechanically like that you're right. There's not much you can do that is noise trauma but there are some things you can do and over here we have a lot of people that have ringing in the ears and we call it tonight's and as for no apparent reason so famously famously in American medicine we have a lot of diagnoses and in the first paragraph in the pathology textbook will say no known cause and no no cure in fact. That's that's many of them is idiopathic. We don't know exactly why these these people get it and we manage it we can treat about how do you cure it. That's a different question so so to those two groups of people so even in his case I would say well how much of the tonight is his annoys trauma and how much of the tonight is might be metabolic or other things going on in those people tend to ultimately wind up with the diagnosis maybe have been years or or some odd kind of diagnosis and I would say the important in part is not what we call it but we're going to do about it so in my opinion tonight is can be best described by saying it's it's a form of inflammation so very simplistically. If we say it's RUB poison ivy on your skin or or something like that creates a dermatitis and you look at that and you say yeah that's Itchy it's red. It's inflamed imagine that in your inner ear red itchy inflamed in fact that's even back with autism or depression anxiety. Imagine Your Brain Rain Imagine Brain Itis inflammation the brain you one person perceives it as anxiety and another person might perceive it as as O._C._D.. And somebody else has autism in imagine that in your inner ear so the the neurological perception going to the brain is perceiving things not as they really are it. Here's noise when noises and they're so it's kind of like you look at you. Know could be an itch on your skin. There's nothing there but I perceive an itch coach. So how do we give the body a different context a signal to turn down admiral signals to turn up normal and of course now we're back to well don't blast the ear with noise trauma mother would-be Number One and two to tolerate a little better better a lot of people do white noise and things like that to create a context where it might be turned things down and then on the inside Metabolic Li i would say what are the most famous in inflammatory turning up regulation of inflammation that we do and we're back to will. What do you eat? How do you sleep what is the metabolic environment the body and so famously for the for the ear for tonight this is sugar and secondly might be the have to be careful here? Fungal or the Yeast East connection or candidiasis and I don't want to overstate that I do want to say it is a factor we live in a world where we have all these toxins. The body has to respond to it but I think that the biggest toxin that we live under his just I too many carbs too much sugar all the time all the time all the time and so two drummer here. I'd say well heck why not just try going to the extreme of hundred as one hundred percent of very very low carb and no the process sugar won't hurt you might help in. That's the interesting when we've seen that folks I got I gotta say testimony to to Randy to practice and patients so many of them where just getting hitting the inflammation out of their system has helped in so many ways we saw that recently with my dad Dan Miller who's public testimony on being a patient with you and so many things he was dealing with and just initially you had him fast some just get everything thing out and just from that alone doing some fasting and cutting out some key inflammatory foods increased his wellbeing so it's surprised them incredibly surprised him because he wasn't continuing to get that poison that caused him again again that problem and we all we we're smiling because we're all on the spectrum. We're all on this well. At least you're that I in this is not a a I can't say this about everybody's back problems and about out Chiropractic I've been lifetime patient of Chiropractic and dealt with back problems of as they ramped up about a year ago that's been longer than that year and a half ago or so ramped up and I was having these times of being immobile tweet my back act back goes out is what people say and literally just couldn't move and this is not sustainable for me and it didn't make sense because I would recover really quick the next day I might be okay again again. This feels more than musculoskeletal long story short and it was through talking with you talking with Jane the Health Coach here in the practice and realizing some foods I was having in my case. It was a night shades which is what's that potatoes peppers eggplant to tomatoes. Okay Yeah so some some nights which again you eat. Them doesn't seem to bother you but I ate them for me. It was causing inflammation in a perfect spot imperfect spot enemy that may have joined an injury from the old cycling days or something like that and it would. I put my back out after getting rid of those nights cold Turkey for me when I was eating a lot of peppers especially my back strong again I mean that's you can't hear right. There's no cookie cutter approach. Hey folks and this happened to me. Nobody Night Shays right that was the idea is that you would write a book and Say I'm GonNa Save the world's acting and we have so many of those books out there people whose there's a vitamin K book everything can be better with vitamin K or vitamins somebody it because it helps somebody so and now we have the Internet where somebody's going to post you know go lick tree bark in the trees outside and helped my heel my something and so one thing that's I think very important to say about inflammation. is we live in a world that right now is also blaming wing inflammation for all ills and so my trick question that I asked people as always Kevin is inflammation good or bad and I would say bad say back and I would say well what is what describe a human human with no inflammation zero inflammatory response and of course my famous one is they are don't exist. They are dead. Okay the debt but we would think if you're perfect you were superhuman purview eight perfect. You slept perfect. You still have so you were born perfect. You would have less but okay but but coming back into it. It's what can we do in an acute state to lower the inflammation well. Do you want do really want less inflammation. Let's say you he accidentally eat church Picnic mayonnaise and you now. How Salmonella do you want less inflammation? You wanted to stay in you or do you. Would you like to be highly inflammatory and poop twenty times a day until that things out yeah all right. That's what you want. That's what saving your life so. No inflammation is is AIDS. That's an acquired immune deficiency or you could say inflammation deficiency now on the other side. If you're inflaming all the time to everything. Do you know the famous disease that's related to is Lupus so lupus means a auto immune response so you're responding your your inflaming to your own skin your own blood your own hair and of course that's a miserable existence so you if you sprain your ankle it should be swollen. Read your body's telling you Kevin get off the ankle. Put it up rest for three days. That's awesome. That's what's keeping you alive and actually that's going on with every breath you take. What do you do? What do you do after you breathe in out right? What do you do after drink water and that's an inflate you're getting the toxins out in getting rid of them and pulling in the good the things that you need from the water in the food food and the breath in the air but every breath has a piece of dust or pollutant you inflame and you get it out if that pro you know we could if you stopped breathing out what would happen in three minutes? Pass out you would die because. Because the your body cannot sustain getting rid of this inflammation process even if we if we cellophane all of your skin you would last about a week but you can't get rid of the toxins we could pinch off your your Retha that that would hurt but you adine about thirty. Maybe you know a day or two because so inflammation is going on interest sell eulalie every second every day all the time don't blame inflammation. The problem is triggering it. Are you continuing to not get enough sleep and over train and eat too much these kinds of foods those kinds of foods back like you were talking with Tim Recovery. Are you not that's right because you're living in a hostile world and a number one thing that you do that as the famous anti-inflammatory is not take vitamin C every morning it is to get restful rhythmic effective efficient sleep that is number one and all of our listeners out there probably these days are averaging and they'll say about six to seven. It's not enough. You won't last an effective eighty years. You will linger well and then I I always want to point out the ones that are saying no. I get eight all the time and then of course how good of how's your oxygenation of course we live at high-altitude. That's a that's a factor in why found myself I am getting eight hours but then if it's bad quality on tossing awesome and turning because of what eight or stress or or whatever okay what we're on inflammation I'm GonNa read this next one because I assume it's going to be right in there Bryan Lynch and he says he's calling jumpers knee. I maybe you've heard that I haven't heard that jumpers need from playing pickle ball aw which is a surprise to me Stena's how much I've been hiking for the last few years. I would've thought my knees get handle a little pickle ball right now. I'm just rest in it. I just picked up the sport at the beginning of the year and had been playing once or twice a week with no problems until recently I played through the pain last Tuesday and haven't played sense hoping that it will only take a week or two arrest but at my age I've had other overuse injuries that have taken months in the Guy Yom smiling at the age thing because I mean you and I so you're I'm just trying to forty nine. You turned fifty and we're at that age it where we have peers who are saying I don't do. I don't play that sport like you said I don't ski. That's a big went around here. You know I Jonoski anymore. Achey knees and things like that and it's age right and I'm posting picked or videos of there was a recent one that was just awesome ninety one year old dudes sprinting and it wasn't just that he was spreading it wasn't that he just wanted it was his form I mean he was sprinting. He was literally. It wasn't just a ninety nine year old runner. The Dude is and I'm and we look at that. He's super human and I'd like to know his history but either way so here we are with Brian and so I I would say first as well Bryan. Don't blame anything age and let's be let's be wise about this. Does increasing age increase the risk in the entrance. Yes of course you know mostly old people are the ones that die so age is a in critical factor but does everybody at fifty have jumpers knee and the answer is no so why do some doing some don't we're back to we'll. How did they live their history? So age is a factor but we have grown up in a culture that yeah I'm fifty fifty. What do I expect will you and I we expect to stay skiing when we're eighty and that's very rational? That's not pie in the sky but the question is going to be for me between fifty one and eighty one. How do I sleep? How do I feed and turn your phones off and that will I thought you were going to say in? How do I live to beat your your line? Be Becoming. How what am I doing today to be becomes for him? I mean you and I four years ago. When we started shared an office or we're saying how how do we be the eight year? Old Guy who can do ten pull ups well. I better be doing temple ups or more everyday now yeah fifteen fifty maybe twenty if you're in but what are we doing right now so I don't know Brian's history I mean for and also so he's talked. How many how many people's knees ache now? I don't know how old Brian is. I'm GONNA guess are as Middle Age or whatever how many are having sore knees from jumping and my first thought was a lot of them don't because they don't jump anymore. I mean that's that's not the coming the type of person so if they're you know how are you doing. He's feeling like he was active but yeah hiking and jumping. It's diff- well and and I know pickle ball and like it. It's a Grub doing a lot of tennis and tennis's different different 'cause you're on your on a very hard surface and all those kind of things so it could be related to those things but let's if we use Brian are muse and we talk about middle aged people who are doing a new sport one of the things so don't blame your age in and secondly he said I played through the pain so that is I get it. We live in a country that teaches men especially you know don't cry. Take Motrin drive on don't complain. You've just getting older place through pain and I would say well. That's you know the Brian but it's just it's not smart. Guide gave us the blessing of pain to tell us. Don't do that now again if we're in a in a foxhole if we're on the frontlines of a football game Kevin when I don't want to hear about your headache right now that now's the time but after that football game in a few said Gosh my knees rake in what what am I going to do. We might say hey for a week. Don't play through the pain allow healing but how is your body going to heal if you're thrown own a bunch of inflammatory foods if you're not getting good breast at night and for Brian I would say if you're not doing if you're not stretching the muscle surrounding your knees so that pre patellar that Patella tendonitis that the famous jumpers kind of thing and you're not stretching out those muscles and increasing the joint capacity for movement you won't heal and pretty soon. You'll stop playing pickle ball as your body's just said he always going to ask about not to make this all about inflammation but if we go out yesterday I went out and road is my fastest mountain bike ride the season so I broke. I was breaking myself down stressing those muscles. They should be enflaming. Weightlift Kids Talk About Al Dad's Swale arms are all. I mean bloated with that inflammation. You're saying that's good. That's the bodies appropriate response now though it has to recover so in Brian's case here am I correct layman's terms and saying okay so he played he broke down his body inflamed around those muscles joints. Whatever the stress he's not recovering right that in that's a paradigm shift rather than blame the trigger? Let's put more emphasis on lack of resolution ORCA. His inflammatory process is not effectively actively resolving and could that be from a deficiency of Omega threes and Vitamin D and Iran paradigm shift though because Yeah you think oh he must have a weakness a week knee a week muscle tendon and you're saying of course we don't know maybe maybe not ah or maybe he's somebody next to him who has the same muscular skeletal skeletal makeup but is able to recover and he's not that's right. That's interesting and we have many people out there whether it's jumpers and your whatever that have a tendonitis his achey joints where now so on one hand there's the tendonitis side of that and on the other hand there's the Intra articulate our joint surface in osteoarthritic picture but everybody middle-age in above if they've had an extra so often be degenerative changes seen by the radiologist in and they call it normal expected level of degenerative changes in I would say we'll of course part of that is age again. We live in a world where I would look cabinet forty-nine and say yeah you got some wrinkles. We don't expect to forty nine year old skin to look like your ten but if you're forty nine and you look like you're eighty. I'm going to say you done some hard living right the wrinkles look that way and and so the question is on the spectrum how to be becoming a guy who's becoming fifty two with less wrinkles than I could have had or less tendonitis or less articulate damage will it doesn't mean go do nothing and sit on the couch. That's actually bad for all of those joints and tendons. That's worse inactivity but hyperactivity are over activity or and he called in and Overuse Syndrome and I'd say you know if you're a middle aged guy doing pickle Nicole twice a week that is not overuse that is lack that is under recovery and I would say back off. He'll so that Brian in maybe three months can be becoming the Kinda guy who plays kickable everyday aggressively and heels appropriately appropriately and he's doing it when he's and I'm sure I'm GonNa ask a question that you're going to say yes to all of them granted but that if you're able to see him talk to him and an audit him in some sense. Would it be fair to say you're going to be looking at is at a strength strength issue that he is a week and he's just not up to speed for that. He's GonNa have to strain themself or you. Mentioned a minute ago sounded like almost like a stretching stretching things is another thing or what if those things were or is it possible that that those things are great and he is just not recovering we look at why and then it may be lifestyle like that. He's not sleeping well. He's not eating well. He's ball blob either way. It's those three of those three quadrants of three squadrons quadrant pillars which I love. You have three quads that yeah that's right. It's you have brain is a doctor. Yes in the answer of course is going to be all the above interwoven uh-huh and if you have a tendon that gets appropriately stressed called exercise and that there's micro fiber breakdowns and those kind of things and then on the recovery phase if if maybe his issues he's got a good tendon but he's not recovering covering than that equals attend that won't stretch writing you tighten up and the next day he he because of the tightness he might have damaged that even a little bit more and so is the answer to just be very limber and stretch and I would say well for some people yes but for all of us yes have a stretched muscle. intendant have a strong muscle intended heavy recovered in recovery process of which is sleep and those kind of things in the fourth part tired of those squadrons I would say is how're you fuelling and we're back to nutrition and not just nutrition but are you chewing your food slow enough. Are you eating in the car where the bodies confused about what's going on our is your gut messed messed up with reflux and things like that and people say well. I'm eating really well and I said well. How are you absorbing? How are you a simulating how you evacuating all of that is giving your body to tools for recovery and now we're back to the infinitely complex human being now even though we're just talking about some of these knee but in in this is the thread that I knew we would come to? It's still you know regardless of what are we doing to help. Our bodies have the best chance of success. Here's somebody Christine O'Donnell. She says I'm fortunate my husband's in sixty five I'm almost fifty two zero health issues zero prescription medications. We rely one hundred percent on our chiropractor and proper nutrition and supplements. That's great. I mean that's well. I I would smile at her. I'd say well hang on. I Bet I could find something wrong but sure sure is a but Kudos for for not having some lots of fasting thing because we've got a lot of people coming in with at those ages especially with so many things and Dan yeah back to you know Achey knees and we expect that you've gotten us talking about. We expect to get it from the chair and in your kids don't do that because they don't feel that in wire we feeling that and we want it off as age and and the norm here here's one that I know is you know as we started talking about autism that is a. I don't know if you'd say it's another epidemic or whatever it's one of the many things it's just on the rapid increase Ryan over. He says lime disease. His wife has lime disease. It's been a challenge. She's had it for three years now and of course we have you deal with that here in the office. We've got friends who have dealt with that specialize in that talk a little bit about that because you're seeing it so much more lyman lyman I don't even know Layman's terms where that fits into the mold aspect and yeah so we'll if we could approach lime in in put it in the realm of all of these what I would call biotoxins toxins so lime mold even within your own body so we all carry around staff and strap and a few hundred million maybe trillion other critters critters in your microbiome and all of that so again recognize the fact that we as humans have been in a symbiotic relationship with all of these biological creatures in the world for a long time and now it is sort of kind of an all of a sudden why this expansive awareness of line and it is real whereas it's debatable and certainly highly debated in the medical community about well. How do we test for it and just like autism? Why is one kid get a vaccine in stopped talking and in in the Internet wars you know other MOMS blame other MOMS whether they vaccinate or don't vaccinate or whatever and just the controversy there but the Canarian the coal mine this kid in the mom's not crazy? She's like yeah he was fine he got shot and then and we all many of us have had a tick bite. <hes> in one person might get a target lesion and have a swollen spot and then get some antibiotics and be just finding another person person. It's a crippling situation and the medical community really has done a poor job over the last few years of recognizing these syndrome ick situations. We've got the yeast <music> syndrome fibromyalgia as a immuno deficiency syndrome the Line Syndrome and they just go on and on the auto immune stuff Hashi motives the thyroid and and a subset of these people there triggering event the tip over over is an exposure to in a line situation a tick by comes in that exposes the blood to these bacteria and there's an immune response again the the real issue is okay. What's it's the trigger lime mold? I had a really bad day at work or something and I got tipped over or oftentimes like with fibromyalgia famously car wreck not a crazy bad one but a little whiplash just gets tipped over and that response than bleeds over into how my my neck my back which bleeds over into my tummies now ache and what is going on and this is so common so again. We're using this guy alliance or I hurt. His wife and we're not gonNA put her in the box of Oh your line you get this protocol and you're gonNA come out the other end and be well. We say what's the unique situation her like. She might also need you to address and I'm sure she she does her sleep her how does she how do we give her body to what it needs to recover and so the way I think about this. I'll look at me and you and say we're not as capable as we could be. Although we don't have the typical symptoms line person but right now if I swab the back of your throat there will be strap but if you don't say my throat hurts and I have a fever we don't call you strep throat so what's the difference because you do have strep throat and staff and and as I talked yesterday with a patient as we looked at the stool and Alison said we'll send them a gun. You've got a little bit of cholera in there or appear Giardi AH in Colorado but if they don't have bloody diarrhea and gase bloody whatever problems then we wouldn't wouldn't say oh you have an infection of Jakarta. We would just say yeah it. It's they're just like strep his on your throat and everybody who's listening. It's in their throat will what's the difference between strep throat with fever and pain and night fever and pain. Gene and I would say it's this incredibly complex and beautiful scenario that God designed of tolerance to our environment. The Sun is shining on us right now but you don't sunburn but if you stayed in that Sun for an hour two three four five at some point you flip over into what we call sunburn and in the same way this particular person got bit by tick and she has her own unique genetic situation and maybe she was thirty or forty and so she's has thirty years of nutrition behind her thirty years of sleep behind her or malnutrition or under slept overstressed and of course now we're all like Oh yeah we're all in the spectrum of under slept overstressed undernourished and then boom. Here's another toxin just like everybody else. Every in this particular persons case it gets tipped over you paint the picture at thought about it this way of we talk about that that we all have strep. We all have this. It's all that yeah. It's not it's again a different paradigms. It's a significant paradigm shift to look at that say we all are having these these battles going on our body today. My Body is sitting here and it is either equipped to fight those things off or it is weakened and that thing that strep is going to come force. Come forward a manifest itself off into that throat that I can't swallow anymore and get antibiotics. So what am I doing today back to the be becoming to be the guy to have the body that can't fight it off and I think we talked about it every day here. In the practice I did this. I had a relational stress a work stress a financial stress that beat me down open the door for the manifestation of this thing that otherwise was able to fight off. I we've seen that with with sugar with foods. You know bring those in sugar comes in it lowers. What the bodies immunity I mean it just weakens the body and can open the door so we talked about you could open the door because they've done that their daddy? I had some of that sugar whatever right away my throat got sore <hes> which sounds sensitive then it's back to year the blessing of pain how great that they're that sensitive that embodies right away saying hey that's that's too much because if I let him do it every day they build up an immunity to somewhat probably performance lower level well I and now you you might have over stated the case there. Can you have four sites sugar and get a sore throat from that. I'd say that's that's a little weird and so two to use your analogy Cuba to new onset a little bit rather than saying. It's a war guy and use the word fight. I'd say it's a dance. There is nothing. Can I say I'm mortifying. I'm trying to fortify myself. I'm trying to build all look into is that yes but in but everybody out there is going to think of a wall like humans of a wall but your body right now your skin. It's a semi permeable wall. You need water to go through your skin but you need to keep out the bacteria and so so just in my experience of people think of a wall becomes too simplistic and you then people start to say oh we gotta write a book no more sugar. We're GONNA outlaw sugar and create these stilted PROB. You know viewpoints which is again going back to the vaccine thing we have nearly a war going on about anti vaxxers improve actors and whatever and it's just your both sides are being over simplistic and so here we are in the middle with this transformative dance in remember not to give them too much credit but the the bacteria in your throat. They don't want you sick. They need you that so it's it's a symbiotic bionic relationship with the world that we live in and of course the world is imperfect so we're all going to die. We all we can only sustain this war aspect of it for about eighty nine years and then we succumb but it's how well do you sustain. It and I don't want to give the impression that if you eat right in into all this stuff you never get sick. I'm like no humans get sick but you're lowering your probability lowering your probability. That's right I guarantee you're GonNa die and so we we talk about death and taxes and all that I would lawsuit illness in there and wrinkles in there and all of these things but do you are you an eighty year old that can get by you know look like a sixty year old and go skiing or you sixteen. You're already feeling eighty. I just over simplified it but if people can latch onto that that because right after they hear this they're going to go eat lunch and they're gonNA make a decision and like you said. Is it going to be fruit. Loops for breakfast and your daughter says Oh gosh I I don't know. Did she really hurt or was she just thinking it and she's trying to make her daddy proud of her uh-huh or is but so we're trying to pass along you're either going to eat and sleep with mindful wise awareness or your mindlessly eating and of course we want people to be my end mindlessly living over off you mentioned by Raja. I didn't even see this. Let Sarah tipped and here she says fibromyalgia twenty years much improved after cutting out white stuff sugar flour rice potatoes eating more protein she cut cut out all diet drinks and caffeine. She's using mostly Chiropractic kinesiology net therapy acupuncture walking and weight machines at the gym and so hats off to her and and she's much better but if if we fibro as as another muse known 'cause there is known cure and here's where I would go to her and to those of us that are in. I say this jokingly jokingly. We are all those of us who don't have FIBROMYALGIA. We are all potentially pre five miles right. So how do we eat live breathe in such a ways to lessen the chance of getting FIBROMYALGIA. Well don't get in a car wreck. Don't have a horse kick. You don't follow up a roof these are we all know these things. I would look at her and I would say didn't you already know that sodas in white sugar white flour and all that stuff was already not the greatest thing so here we look at at at all of us <music>. I'm not blaming her and putting her in a different box than me. We're on the spectrum in I would say randy. Am I going to choose a convenient easy fast food thing because I've just I don't have enough time that is not gonNa feel my oh by the way I'm increasing my probability of getting a fibromyalgia response. Here's an individual and once the physiology flops into these syndromes it's very hard to get out and so now she's having to also employ readjustments adjustments with alignment and the net therapy and and and giving the body all of these other signals to to get back on track so I would look at our children in those of us who don't have to say well. Why don't we go ahead and stop the sodas anyway? Why don't we go ahead and prevention yeah but we hate the word prevention? Oh okay so the only way to measure if you're preventive efforts have been successful is by counting disease because right right now you and I didn't walk in today and say Kevin No fibromyalgia dude another day I five no no hypertension or a thousand other. We don't think that way until you have high blood pressure high cholesterol headaches five miles or whatever ever station the manifestation and now so prevention in America is a very this is a paradigm shift and I would look at all the doctors and whatever else I'd say stop talking about prevention and talk about specific specific well promotion in define it so Kevin Miller would say I wanNA run a mile in six minutes at nine thousand feet and I'd say define your well markers. If all you say is I WANNA have my knees not have osteoarthritis itis more great. Go sit on the couch. Go Walk. We don't know what to tell you to do and that's why people get told eat right next. I don't drink don't smoke and it's just it's a nonsensical over-simplified way to do it but every website on every insurance talk about prevention and getting all these things done like you know Mammogram is not breast cancer prevention detection. It's death prevention yeah but it has nothing to do with prevention and getting a little and we have so many post here. I'm going to read one more though because it speaks to the humanity of living life and having to make these decisions Shawn McGowan she says I had felt healthy for most of my life than I hit aged thirty ish and it was one thing after another gallbladder removal avium in my brain resulting in radiation and brain surgery which resulted in E._r.. Surgery from blood clot then tonsils removed three years later and I don't feel like I'm back to where I was before. All this started. I find myself making excuses like this is just my new normal but at the end of the day I know it's just an excuse feel lazy entire did she hasn't quotes foggy because I make poor food choices and choose to exercise my brain and that my body I definitely need to find my mental and physical equilibrium that is a challenge gosh that had his well with wealth stated in. It's a nutshell of all of us. Everybody's brain is a little foggy and she is now noticing. No no no mind is foggy erred and and you know which of those surgeries tipped over well what let up to the need of gallbladder surgery right and so it you I would encourage her. Don't don't look at these surgeries as the cause in fact so another story in analogy is will pick on Kevin if we say okay. Hey here's here's a camel in front of us and we're going to call the Camel Kevin and the question is what Straw broke the camel's back in your case of your of your back pain and I look at you and say Kevin what Straw broke the camel's back. What would you say on my back pain yeah? What would you say eating inflammatory foods right that well you would say nightshade family foods and I would say okay I get it? That was a straw but I realized that wasn't it. So what is it which Straw F- Who knows the answer is all of them all sure the past injuries the whole whatever and the strength of the back the genetic infrastructure of the human being himself this the strength of the back so stay stay with US camel analogy and now we've got her story where here's another Straw called. Whatever led to gall bladder stones? Here's another Straw of whatever led to an A._T._M.. An eight year of integral malformation which is likely genetic and you know they just founded rounded but and then the straw of the surgeries like the first guy we talked about in the heart surgery. That's a big old straw but if all you do is blame that last straw you're oversimplifying in your not giving your camel the necessary attention in mindfulness to give all of these areas thought to say okay well. How do I remove straws and strengthen the camel's back and give the camel better air to breathe in and what if this camel whoever that person is now goes home to a really stressful marriage or goes home to in Colorado? It's a dog state so I don't know how many times people say oh my gosh. My dog is sick. This is crushing me or the one one guy a thousand dollars a month vet bill. That's crushing on and on it goes these are all straws so to to encourage her. I would say change your mind set of not accepting the new normal but to say okay don't blame those surgeries and you can't change the past anyway but you can change how you think about that passed and for somebody who stuck into I'm a little depressed. I'm a little brain fog. It's very very hard to say.

I'm Laura Adams and I'm so glad to have you with me this week. Creating this episode was and is eerily familiar to one that was published at the end of two thousand eight just a few months after I became the host of the money girl. Podcast the great recession which lasted from the end of two thousand seven to about the summer of two thousand nine was getting real and the show was a response to many questions. I received about how to invest and shore up finances successfully during the crisis. So this is going to be something very similar. We should be prepared for significant hardship in the economy about once a decade. Now it's been about twelve years since the last one so I guess we're overdue. The Corona virus is a big but invisible challenge. That is most certainly causing host of first-time problems for families businesses and the medical community. Maybe we should call this economic downturn. The novel recession. You probably know that earlier this month in early March Congress approved a big package funds. Eight point three million dollars. For various government health agencies that are dealing with the virus including Medicare and the response from the federal and the state government is still unfolding as I'm recording. This show they are still working on the second package and these are probably going to continue to come in phases but whatever is passed. It's going to be aggressive to preserve public health. Help consumers manage living expenses and help business owners cope with major disruptions? And I'll be updating you with details when we know more about what the specifics of pending legislation mean for you in your personal and business finances but until then I wanna talk about some things that we can do on a micro level to make our financial health as resilient as possible. So in this podcast. I'm going to offer five strategies to manage money in uncertain times and address. Some of the questions that have come up from members of my dominate.

It's a terrific group filled with lots of smart people who are helping each other. If you would like an invitation you can text the word dollars. Do L. L. A. R. S. to the number three three four four four. Or you can just go on facebook and do a search for dominate your dollars and as always you'll find the notes for this show and the complete archive of podcasts in the money girl section at quick and dirty tips dot com. This is episode number six hundred thirty called five strategies to manage finances during corona virus uncertainty. Okay so tip. Number one is. Check your emotions when the financial markets are down or extra volatile and when we have so much uncertainty with the economy and with what's going on with everyone's health the true nature of your risk. Tolerance gets revealed so whether you're a riverboat gambler or a stuff the cash in the mattress kind of person. You've probably been wondering what changes if any you should make to your investments right now and I want to encourage you that before you do anything. Remember that being a successful investor and money manager is mostly about managing your emotions. And I know that's easier said than done because there is no separating money from emotions however in general the fewer rash decisions. You make the better. We've seen how emotions affect the economy with panic. Buying of basic supplies such as toilet paper. Hand Sanitizer inbred which continues to leave both store shelves bare and with investor emotions. I mean they're on full display with the wild swings that seen in the stock market these fueled by two powerful motivating forces fear ingred. The problem is when you panic and you make quick drastic decisions such as selling your investments at the moment their value drops or taking a loan from your retirement account. They set you back financially for decades so instead of letting your emotions get the best of you. Consider imposing a waiting period on yourself before making any large-scale money decisions alone plan for making any changes just soak in for a day or two and definitely considered discussing it with a financial advisor or a representative from your investment firm before you pull the trigger. And I'm going to indefinitely encourage you not to pull the trigger have any conversations about things that you may be considering all right tip number to maintain cash reserves so as we all know this issue with the corona virus happened pretty suddenly. I mean the economy was just moving along. Life was going well. We had travel plans. Work plans a lot of things that we were doing and we had a sense for what was coming next and then all of a sudden here we are and it's a tough reminder. That events can change quickly and that we have to be vigilant particularly in good times to stay prepared for potential bad times so those with emergency funds in the bank right now are going to feel a whole lot less stress than those. Who Don't that's exactly why. It's essential to maintain cash reserves of at least three to six months worth of living expenses in an FDIC insured bank savings account. And if you don't need to dip into your emergency fund I want you to continue shoring it up when possible. Now if you don't have cash reserve you don't have an emergency fund at all. Do what you can to accumulate some amount of savings by cutting non essential expenses and even temporarily pausing contributions to retirement accounts. If you've been making them that's a better option than succumbing to panic and tapping your retirement funds early or taking a loan from your 401k. For instance most workplace retirement accounts allow you to borrow half of your vested Account Balance. Up to fifty thousand dollars. But you've got to repay that over a five year term but they only allow regular withdrawal so not alone but a withdrawal can only be taken from a workplace retirement plan for a few very specific needs such as avoiding foreclosure paying for a funeral or paying education expenses even if you do qualify for a retirement account hardship withdrawal. You're still subject to a ten percents penalty on the funds. That you withdraw. Typically you also get locked out of making any new contributions for a minimum of six months so if you are considering a withdrawal from your retirement account This is something that you only want to do. As a very very last measure you know another reason to not to break your qualified retirement account. Piggy Bank is that it gets special federal legal protection specific plans such as a 401k and even separate They're covered by a law called the employee retirement income security act or Iressa E. R. Essay for short. It's protected from claims by creditors. So that means if you went into foreclosure or Had some serious financial hardship. Creditors could not attack your retirement account your 401k but if you drain that retirement account then it's gone and you know. In a lot of cases. Many people are tapping it. Unnecessarily and the bad news is that not all retirement accounts. Get this automatic federal protection for example traditional and Roth. Ira's are not covered by Orissa however they may be protected in some states and under federal bankruptcy law. Therefore if you find yourself in a serious cash crunch which I know many of you will be feeling. Contact your creditors before you dip into any retirement account. Many lenders will be willing to work with you to either suspend payments or to modify existing loan terms temporarily. They should have options to help you. Based on pending new legislation the first round of consumer protections did put a sixty day halt to foreclosures and any post foreclosure evictions on the mortgage is backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac however proposed bills might expand these protections for homeowners. So what I want you to do is check your loan documents mortgage statements or visit the website. Know your options dot. Org to learn more about relief for homeowners facing a crisis due to the corona virus again. It's no your options dot org. The third tip is to keep up good savings habits. I think the most common question that I'm hearing right now is should I even continue to make contributions to my 401k. And I would say if you've got some cash in the bank and you can afford to make contributions and I would say if your retirement is at least five to ten years away. The answer is an emphatic. Yes continue making those contributions. Most investors contribute the same dollar amount or the same percentage of their income or wages every pay period. Not only is this a convenient way to invest but it allows you to dollar cost average. That simply means that you're buying a fixed dollar amount of investments on a regular schedule. Let me give you an example. Let's say you contribute two hundred dollars a month to your 401k. At work you end up. Buying more shares when prices are low and fewer shares when prices rise dollar cost averaging is a pretty simple buy and hold strategy that allows you to accumulate shares and see your account balance go up when the prices of those shares rally and eventually they will rally also. Don't forget about the benefits that you may be receiving from company matching if you're fortunate enough to get a percentage match from your employer on your 401k or four zero three. B contributions those matching funds can easily offset losses in your account. So you need to be continuing contributions to take advantage of that matching however if you've been laid off or you work in an industry that's going to be unstable during the expected economic downturn. You might be better off. Suspending retirement contributions and shoring up your emergency fund. Instead it just depends on how much cash you already have. And how stable your income should a before we go on. Today's episode is supported by M M Leflore. When women succeed in the workplace. The world becomes a better place. That's why M.

Promo code money girl for fifteen percent off your first purchase. It spelled m. m. l. a. f. l. e. r. dot com slash money girl and code money girl for fifteen percent off tip number four. Watch your investment choices. Another common question is is there anything different that I should be doing with my money right now while it's wise to continue investing? You still need to be picky about what you buy loading up on shares of a fundamentally lousy stock or fun just because it's cheap doesn't make sense depending on your retirement account. You likely have a very nice menu of funds to choose from. Sticking with diversified index funds mutual funds or exchange traded funds is very wise. Unless you're an experienced trader. I never recommend buying individual stocks even when prices plummet. So if you're not sure what funds you're buying with your contributions you can log onto your retirement account and take a look. You'll see your balance for each fund. The percentage return over different periods and the amount of company matching that you may have received and a lot more information. So it's a good time to check out your investment allocation and. I can give you a pretty easy shortcut that you can use to make sure that you're comfortable with allocation and it's easy you simply subtract your age from one hundred or even from one hundred ten if you prefer more risk and then use that resulting number as the percentage of stocks or stock funds that you should own for example. If you're forty years old you might consider holding. Sixty percent of your portfolio in stocks were stock. Funds is what I really recommend if you tend to be more aggressive subtracting your age from one. Ten would indicate seventy percent for stock funds but again this is just a rough guideline that. You may decide to change. You might allocate your stocks percentage to variety of stock funds. Or You could put it. All into one stock fund that's diversified the remaining amount of your contribution would be put in other asset classes such as bond funds or cash. This allocation should stay the same even in an economic downturn now most investment accounts have a really nice way that you can make sure that your investments are allocated the way you want them to be all the time and it's called automatic rebalancing so if that is an option that you haven't turned on in your account make sure that you selected. It's really helpful. Because it's going to make sure that you maintain your preferred amount of stocks in your portfolio. Even as prices are moving up and moving down. And if you're not sure how to use a rebalancing feature or to know if it's on speak with a representative at your investing firm for some guidance and the last tip number five focus on what's in your control once you've done some deep breathing and exhaled out the panic focus on what you can control many economic factors that affect your investment portfolio and your health or simply not under your control. So don't worry about them. Your job is to stay informed. Stay healthy and stay as calm as possible now. This isn't going to eliminate worry from your life completely but I want to challenge you to worry only about the things that you can directly influence or change unnecessary. Worry about something that you can't control has cost and it never makes the thing you or your family any better. Once you accept this idea. I think it makes it easier to move forward and your time on something else. Spend it on something you can control find a way to focus only on the limited scope of actions that you have staying home while the virus runs. Its course isn't fun. But you can use the time wisely by creating a budget completing some long avoided tasks paring down your closets learning something. New using some new debt reduction strategies. I have a whole lot of them in my book. Debt free blueprint. Which was an Amazon number? One new release. It's something that you could definitely spend the time reading right now. You could keep a journal. Update your resume. Find a side gig stream and online exercise class or connect with loved ones on facetime. Look around and figure out how you can create more income or cut unnecessary expenses or manage the debt. You already have better working on those tasks that you can control will give you a lot more clarity and help you manage stress in uncertain times before we go.

#A230 (appeal to appellant)

"Hello words welcome to another episode of the Dictionary Yeah. That phrase is getting a little old but maybe I'll think of something else later. The first I word for this episode is the second form of Appeal A. P. P. E. A. L. The first form was at the end of the previous episode and if you you didn't go listen to that what's wrong with you. Why are you listening to these out of order. Shame shame on you all right. This is a verb from the fourteenth century. The the transitive definitions are one to charge with a crime synonym is accused to to take proceedings to have a lower court's decision -sition reviewed in a higher court. Now we have the in transitive definitions one to take a lower court's decision to a higher court for for review to to call upon another for corroboration vindication or decision three to make an earnest request I as in appealed to them for help four to arouse a sympathetic response as in that idea appeals to him for some reason the idea for this podcast appealed to me and now I am doing it and it's ridiculous. Appeal ability is a noun appealable is an adjective are bananas appealable and a Peeler is a noun now. We have the word appealing. We've added added an I N G. It's an adjective from eighteen thirteen. One marked by earnest entreaty synonym is imploring starts with an I am to having appeal synonym is pleasing as in and appealing design English. Che's weird. There are a lot of words that have at least two meanings so just for instance our last word appeal when you're in court you can appeal the decision but something can also be in this case appealing pleasing It's very it's a very confusing language and I'm I'm not surprised when people from other countries who speak other languages complain about how confusing it is I've heard that it's actually one of the hardest languages to learn so I guess I'm grateful that I learned it from. You know babyhood but yeah it's it's a really really weird and confusing using language all right just to finish up appealing. We have an adverb form which is appealingly next. We have the word appear. It's an in transitive verb from the thirteenth century one. A to B or come insight as in the sun appears on the horizon one one B to show up as in appears promptly at eight each day to to come formerly before an authoritative body as in must appear in court today. Maybe they have to appear in court because they have an appeal three to have an outward aspect synonym. Synonym is seem S. e. e. m. as in appears happy enough for to become evident or manifest as in there appears to be evidence to the contrary five to come into public view as in. I appeared on a television variety. Show also is in the book appeared in print a few years ago six to come into existence as in hominids appeared late late in the evolutionary tree train ooh. What's the evolutionary train when you start on it. You're you're where you are and then. When you get to your destination nation you've evolved into a new creature. ooh that reminds me of the Super Nintendo Game I had when I was a kid and it was all about evolution in you would add new features to your your water creature and then it would gradually get more and more advanced and then you'd move to land who that was a fun game any way. Where did we leave off. Okay so the example was hominids appeared late in the evolutionary chain not train so the definitions for for this one are interesting because every single one had at least one example one of them had to. I like it when they give examples because it helps you understand that definition in a little bit more but there's a lot that just don't give an example at all. I mean if you look at appeal. At the beginning of the episode a few you of those didn't have an example at all and then you look at this one and every single one has at least one example. Here's a little bit on the etymology for appear it is from the Latin operate which is from Ad Plus Pereira which means to show oneself next. We have appearance. It's a noun from the fourteenth century one a external show synonym is semblance as in although hostile. He preserved an appearance of neutrality. I gotta say that that kind of describes me pretty well. I kind of like be neutral. I don't like conflict. I like solving holding conflict. I like helping when I was in junior high. I actually did a little bit of that. peer mediation thing. I don't know I assume they're still doing it but this was a while ago and and I really like doing that but enough about me. How about you know one beep outward aspect synonym is look l. O. K. as in had a fierce appearance one see this is plural so appearances definition is outward indication as in trying to keep up appearances to a a sense impression or aspect of a thing as in the the blue of distant hills is only an appearance that example seems like it should be from a poem or something it's it's very poetic and lyrical all right to be the world of sensible phenomena three a the action or process of appearing three three b the presentation of oneself in court as a party to an action often through the representation of an attorney for a something that appears synonym is phenomenon four be an instance of appearing synonym is occurrence. Prince next. We have peas A. P. P. E. A. S. E. It's a transitive verb from the fourteenth century three one to bring to a state of peace or quiet synonym is calm to to cause to subside synonym is is L. A. A. L. L. A. Y. As in appeased my hunger three we have these synonyms pacify and conciliate silly it C. O. N. C. I. L. I. At I think that's how it's pronounced especially to buy off an aggressor by concessions and sessions usually at the sacrifice of principles so that was an add on to the number three definition and then for all definitions we have a synonym which is the word pacify Ah Pisa Bowl is an adjective appeasement is a noun and appeaser is also announ next. We have the first I form of Appellant A. P. P. E. L. L. A. N. T. and the second form will be the last word for this episode so the first form is an adjective. It's from the fourteenth century of or relating to an appeal and a synonym is appellate. APP APPEA- E. L. L. E. and we will get to that word at the beginning of the next episode but we do have an example for this one an appellate court now. We have the second form of appellant. It's a noun from the fifteenth century one that appeals specifically one that appeals appeals from a judicial decision or decree the word of the episode is going to be the word appear because it has a lot of different front definitions and I just find it interesting that we have so many words in the English language that can mean so many different things that that is the end. Thank you for breaching the end and thank you for listening information to contact me as in the episode descriptions. Please please please share it.

I'm your host Kuhnen Taylor and today I'm joined by Eddie Donaldson For what assure to be very fun but also unconventional episode. I got connected to Eddie through our founder and CEO. Nate eight Morris who's pride for his home state of Kentucky literally knows no bounds and when he heard about all of the really awesome stuff Eddie was doing for Louisville. We knew we had to have him come on and tell his story. Thank you so much for chatting with me today. Thanks for having me super excited. Share what we're up to. So our podcast. Fast is generally categorized as a sustainability podcast but sustainability in a lot of its forms doesn't always have to meet environmental on today. I think we're going to talk a lot. More about sustainable communities in social impact messaging. But before we get into all of that I know you have a very cool story. Okay and I want you to walk me through how Kentucky Kid ended up in the California arts scene and not just ended up in the art scene but really at the heart of everything going on uncreative in California. Well when a you know born and raised in Louisville or at least mostly raised in Louisville my mother passed away when I was sixteen or fifteen years old so so Came to live in Los Angeles with her sister. My Aunt Doris Johnson. Who interesting enough kind of figure? In Louisville. She was a musician on on the scene on Washington Street. And all the cool like bars and sixties. I came to live with her. And after you know losing your mom barely having having relationship with your father and being dumped in a whole new city which is completely different than where you were you. Kind of options are limited to where he kinda migrate towards so you know fortunately and unfortunately depending on which lends you look at it through. I kind of found myself migrating grading towards gangs here in Los Angeles. Because that was you know it was it felt like a safe place for me and I was accepted for who I was and just kind of started hanging out in the wrong places. Let's say and then I was introduced to graffiti. You know and I was like. Hey this is a safer. Kind of environment with a similar her fraternal brotherhood. Feel a crew of guys that really care about each other look out for each other and will do anything for each other so you know. Even though it wasn't the greatest artist that's kind of where I ended up and then from there you know kind of you know naturally being a business minded person. I guess I've tried to figure out a way where since I was is it the greatest graffiti artists in the world. How can actually turn this into a business? How can I monetize these kids skills? And how can we make a business out of this. I guess you could say you caught foresight to a certain extent you know none of us knew what we were doing. As far as business was concerned or or the detention by ability for business. But you know I just had had the vision that one day this would be accepted art form and that people would pay for it and that's kind of what got me in the business of art in so what's now bringing you back back to your roots back to Louisville. Well it's an interesting. That's an interesting conversation as well. I mean you know given the fact that I lost my mom early it was Kinda four letter word for me. I loved the basketball aspect of my hometown. Whether it be local or you have L. or K.. Not Always Watch the Games and stay connected. You know through Athletics but you know it's just kind of a a negative feeling when I thought about home based on my loss and a friend of mind Danny Wimmer who does music festivals back in local. He does hometown rising Bourbon and beyond and louder than life started these festivals and we had some business together. And he's like you should come see what we're doing here. It's pretty cool so I I went home and you know I have to say I was completely shocked at how much change had happened in the city. How cool the scene? The Art scene was in the music scene and how much progressive it was considering. How how it was when and I left thirty years ago or whatever so you know? I reconnected with a lot of my high school friends and I and I really. I really kind of felt that special feeling and you know like how special it is to be in Louisville in how special the people are so I decided I wanted to try to figure out some ways that I could bring some of the stuff that I'm doing here. You're back home and not only expose people at home to how cool what. La and an international graffiti and street. Art Scene feels like but also get some of these skies from Paris or Australia or London to touch ground in Louisville and see how special the ground and the people are there. So that's really kind of the inspiration spradlin behind the wall sluggers project and talk a little bit more about that and what exactly you guys are doing with branded arts. Well you know it's natural for me due to try and bring something that's so accessible to me back home and something that we've been doing for over twenty years so I got together with some people here in La and we decided we wanted to put together a mural project not a mural festival because it's not going to happen happened in a short period of time. I'd like to have start during Derby create. Do our first activation in the end with a bang during the try festival varied in October with Daniel presents officially with them but during that time so that gives us a seven or eight month time period to execute as many beautification. You too fixation. Projects as we can whether it be for community or for commercial because we're having a lot of conversations in in different areas you know one of the things we're trying to do is as we would like to revitalize the area surrounding the Skate Park and we're talking to the city and I've got diamond supply company here in La that wants to help fund it will take some skaters back Jack and will do a huge day when we unveil the the mirrow but then also some of the stuff we're trying to do is we'd love to do some beautification at the healing place. which is the number one recovery center in local? We'll at least to my knowledge. They have three facilities. And we've talked about painting you know doing something at all three. And then we're also talking Johnson middle school about coming in and doing something something in their gymnasium and in the hallway that's motivational and inspirational to the kids on the ground. So I mean it's really it's it's really a pretty thick and robust program program an ambitious program but considering all the love for the arts and local getting everything funded should should be. I don't WanNa say easy but I'm confident that will find refunds. We need you have such a large network of artists and just like people around you and talent in friends in industry names as as we look back on the last decade while also like looking ahead to the next. I mean this is GonNa be hard. This is going to be like picking your favorite child but like who do you think were some of the most influential artists famous well known or not over the last ten years in the scene and also who do you think is really GonNa make an impact on the next ten. Wow how that's a tough question. You know one of the things that I always say when people ask me questions like this or Gimme the credit for being where I am in what I do is. I don't know anything else that no one else knows. Like I'm not the smartest guy in the world you know. I'm not Jeffrey Deitch. Or you know I just happened to have a lot of really cool friends. Does that make art. And I'm I'm just blessed to be in the right place at the right time but if I have to answer that question I would say shepherd. Ferry is probably to me one of the most influential fluential artists that I've ever worked with and of my time because of the reach that he isn't able to accomplish and a lot of the social chain he's been able to to to activate or or be a part of an and he keeps that as as a common denominator to most of the things that he does you know he has a ton of integrity. He understands the value of social economics and he understands the impact that his art has on people that see it so you know I'd give him the. Probably you know that credit to be one of the most influential influential artists of our time. As far as I'm concerned I mean obviously banks is is hugely famous and hugely popular. But I don't think banks he's making near the change range in the world that Shepherd Fair has been able to accomplish and I admire that and as far as the future goes the landscape is changing so much when I when I got into the art xenos like you had to pay dues. You had to you know you had to pay your time and you had to put your time in and you had to get the experience now with the age of the Internet and in how just media in general has changed who knows who the next new artist is going to be. I don't think it's going to be one. I think it's going to be thousands of new artists that have change your have the ability to to make change and and create impact. Because you know everyone has a voice now when it comes to art or creativity eighty or music based on their ability to publish almost immediately Anything they want so I don't think there's going to I think it's going to change landscape landscape to WHO's the guy who's the I think it's going to be the entire generation that actually is credited for for that space. You talked a lot. What about you know change in social good? I'm curious because obviously Rubicon Environmental Company. That's trying to make a change in you know we're trying going to do what we can. How do you think that environmental sustainability social messaging you all of that plays a role in our you? No I've done some research about Green Rafidi and I don't necessarily mean you know. Let's toxins in the paint can. But do you think that some of the messages that you've seen on some the murals and art are now kind of leaning more towards environmental messaging. What are some of those trends like? Well I mean yes. There's you know we understand standing power we have to to move the needle into communicate to the masses you know when it comes to street art and graffiti. I mean that's the core reason for doing doing so is messaging you know it started with like look at me and now look at these issues. or or let's beautify neighborhood there's a ton of people in the space that are now making different French choices to materials that they use and there's a ton of manufacturers in the business that are looking for new solutions just invited a guy yesterday named Dj that has a company called can love and their whole their whole idea. is they recycle cans and they make these beautiful hearts with the inside of the can facing out so you can see the different colors. They take the top the cans and they asked him to make him flowers. Yes really really cool and so everyone is a little bit more conscious as the world wakes up. You know people. We'll have to be responsible for what their footprint is. And what their messages in regards to that footprint so you know whether we find perfect solutions to to the environmental issues when it comes to materials or or application. It's really how we speak about it. And how and the message that we leave behind because at the end of the day. That's it's what art is. It's a form of messaging and communication hopefully to impact and create change or motivate people to activate. Something what you know whatever it is you know the message for our next show is called Love Los Angeles style. And you know it's all about love everything that we're doing in every bit out of messaging is about activating love so you know there's a huge social impact component to what we do and I think most of the people that You know are involved or or waking up and utilizing that tool for that for those purposes. What does that show that left? Show what does that look like. What's that GONNA be about forty to fifty artists from mostly Los Angeles natives? We've taken the love American style. Show from the sixties these are seventies and we've recreated the logo. We're actually working on one. That says love global style that I was GonNa toss out to the community and see if it sticks. And we're you know just taking a look at the tagline is love and all the right places you know I think love is the order of the day like we need more love less hate. You know. I'm not a genius for uh for that philosophy or that thought process but it's like you know once again social impact. I think it's my job or my duty at this moment to try and raise as much awareness Arneses we can for love so I picked forty five artists so far and everyone's challenge to come up with some sort of message that messages love pretty basic. I'm I'm trying to think of read through the powerpoint that was sent to me about the wall sloggers program you know. I've stopped her instagram. I'm a lot I you know. Done my fair share a research in kind of seems like you have a lot of hands in a lot of different buckets but one of your main passion seems to be marketing and branding right like what we talked about at the beginning is you're trying to find a way to monetize this art in this. So do you have any advice for aspiring marketers. You know with the age of like you're talking about the age of the Internet in the age of social media you know. Everybody thinks that they're our marketing. And more importantly marketing themselves and as someone who is a millennial on a marketing department curious to pick your brain on how you think marketing being can be really impactful way to tell story. Will you know as an old timer right you know. I had a conversation this morning. On my way to equinox someone and it was like back to that whole paid dues thing right you look at the landscape. It's changed as well. You know kids get famous miss overnight with a great idea on instagram. They go from ten thousand dollars to fifty thousand followers. Right and then there's the sense of entitlement from the younger kids because it's arrive easier for them to garner these kind of eyeballs or the or make waves per se but at the end of the day for me. It's all a hustle. You know most of the people I I know that have what they have didn't get it handed to them. They had to get up every day and go out and get it. You know. I'll watch the Dave chapelle special last night about Mark Twain gift and I was blown away with the admiration that people had for him but at the end of the day it was because he stayed at it twenty four seven he never stops. You know. There's a statement that GNAWS came out with success. Sleep is the cousin of death you know and that sounds drastic right but at the end of the day my point is if you're really trying to be we in the marketing business are you really WanNa make change or you really whether it's philanthropy. Whatever you're doing you gotta do it all the time? You GotTa do it one hundred percent you got to put the gas pedal to the metal. There's no there's no stopping you know that's been my my. That's my number one reason that I've been able the do what I do is because every minute of the day I'm working you know even when I'm playing basketball trying to size up somebody on the court to see what they do who they are and how we can make some magic agic together so for me any advice out to younger kids or any. Even the kids at work in my office is like there. You're never off work whether you have nine to five or you are an entrepreneur. Noor you're always working because that's the only thing that's going to get you where you want where you wanna go. That's really solid advice and we talked about the kids in your office so you're running the marketing division. That's really kind of the day to day thing that you're doing. How do you bring what you know all of? Oh you different hassles together. It's easy I think I'd I hinted to this in the beginning. It's like I don't have a roadmap to where I'm going because most of my businesses so oh you know as you said unconventional in the beginning of this conversation. So you know I'll have someone in my office to talk about how we're going to have an event for them and then by the time they leave. They decided decided. They fell in love with one of the artists on the wall and they want to do a collaboration in manufacture some product. Like right. Now I'm working on doing some collaborations with Lamar Jackson from the Ravens events. You know an old U of l football player and it wasn't hard for me I didn't. I made a phone call to a friend and was like hey. Would you like to do a collaboration with Lamar. So it's like I just have so many Goes back to never sleeping. Never stop working and look at every situation you come into as a potential opportunity. Everything I'm I'm doing just feeds it each other. There's no you know it's not planning it's just. It's the relationships at a bill and I guess the luck of the draw. Maybe I don't know any this has been like really cool for me. You know we got connected. A couple months back through nate in through nate's friend todd and they all had the best things to say about you but one the things that I love about interviewing guests on the town hall is Kinda go through your professional timeline. Wanted to find out what you were doing. Career wise asks for advice but now I've Kinda one of like humanize you a little bit. Employees are rapid fire. Game it's quick. It's ten questions and then you just answer the first first thing that comes to your mind and I think with your hand in every bucket. I think you're GonNa have some really cool answers you ready Jer. What is one song that you could listen? Listen to over and over again and not get sick of it says by most F- name a career highlight for you from twenty nineteen working with a con on lighting Los Angeles. You could have dinner with any celebrity dead or alive. Who would you choose? And why I Barack Obama because I think first black president of America regardless of the political side or accomplishments that would be an amazing mazing conversation. What is one quote that you've heard throughout your life for your career? What something that you've heard that's really stuck with you? You have to be the alliance. Sometimes you have to be alliance you can be the land that you are. What is one thing that you wish people understood more about street art feeding a wish? People understood that artists. Just WanNa be loved when you're little what. What did you WanNa be when you grew up? Michael Jordan where's your favorite place to eat now. Where would you take Barack Obama Knicks on beverly early and I think I've learned the answer to this one through the episode but if you could play any sport professionally would you play in? Why ask for right Gulf Wolf Golf and the reason I play golf is because I can't play golf? It's difficult. I'd take lessons all the time and I can't I can't I can't figure it out and I it's like a challenge basketball's easy to me. I feel confident can beat most people coming contact with unless that's what they do but golf office something. I just can't seem to get a grasp on what is your morning routine like I get up. I pray I workout out for fifteen to twenty minutes in my bathroom with lightweights feed my dog I go to yoga at nine. Am for an hour and a half. And then I find find myself either at a meeting already after that. Lastly what does success mean to you. That's changed over the years but currently I I think being being somewhat at peace with the things that I'm doing and the relationships that I'm involved in you know whether it's money or its friends or it's romantic. I think just having some sense of ease when it comes to the things that I'm doing not angst before I let to half off. Where can people learn more about you about the work that you and your friends are doing in how to really get involved in the conversation? What's the best way for people to reach out Wellman in here we go at the age of the Internet for me? I mean the the most active way to figure out are the most active thing follow from his instagram and that would be at guerrilla one on G. E. R. I L. L. A. O. N. E.. 'cause that's what I'm on on a daily basis whether it be poster stores I aca really inspired and I know that everybody who listens on the episode comes out after GonNa feel that way too. I think there need. There's a large need in our community for more people to create express themselves in like you said do more things with love so I just WanNa say thank you so much for spending your morning with me and not doing like ten ten types of workouts. Thank you for having me. I really appreciate it.

Does Los Angeles want a big art fair?

"The newspaper put coasties brought to you. In Association with bonhams auction is in seventeen ninety three to find out. More VISIT BOMBS DOT com. Hello and welcome to the art. Newspaper puck cursed. I'm Ben Luke. Thanks for listening this week. We're focusing on events on both coasts of the US freeze Los Angeles and a show in New York of art from the Hill region in the southern Sahara for for that. Just a reminder that you can sign up for free daily newsletter for all the latest news go to the newspaper Dot Com. And you'll find the knees link at the top right of the page. It's the second edition of freeze Los Angeles which the company Endeavor Freezes. Relatively new owner is hoping will consolidate the fares presence in its home city. But what does the art scene in Los Angeles make of freeze presence? Is it embracing the fair with open arms? What does it pose a threat to an art community that prides itself on its distinctive? Feel to the New York scene. Jerry Finkel Los Angeles correspondent joins me on the line. Now Joy I'd like to begin by asking does L. A. Really want a great big fair and a big market presence in the city. That is such a good question and I do not want to speak on behalf of all of L. A. of course but I can tell you that I feel like opinion on the ground is a little bit mixed that as exciting as it is to have freeze week. You know we have the fair in town so we have. We have a major art fair in the form of freeze but there's also frees week. The talks screenings the galleries putting on their best shows. The artists opening up their studios. Everything that goes along with freeze as exciting as that is. I do think that some people are wary of this becoming another or a more traditional art market capital. So can you say like for people that don't know? La who've never been there does la filled it has a different presence in the American ecosystem ecosystem than your does. Does it prides itself on that difference? Yeah I think so. I mean the shorthand I used to use when I was on staff at the La Times to explain it to editors who didn't follow the art world at all is that New York was so much at the time in this ten years ago. That New York was so much the center of consumption in terms of art but that La was recognized and appreciated and really celebrated as a major center of production that the artists live here. They're major arts was here. I mean we're talking five major art schools that have drawn artist to L. A. for many years and kept artists here because they offered teaching jobs and so does that because of the art school mentality sort of communities that those are schools in Genda de therefore have a certain almost I mean. Obviously artists need to leave. But do you have a sentence of resistance to market forces in La to a certain degree? I think plays out in really interesting ways. Of course you know. Artists need to make a living and I think they appreciate the art market as well. You know they want galleries and they want galleries to show their work and they won't galleries to sell their work so I don't want to pay artists as kind of naive part of the ecosystem but I do think that artists are participating in the market in really interesting ways. I just wrote a story for the New York. Times ON ARTIST RUN GALLERIES FOR EXAMPLE. Which have a really long rich tradition. In Los Angeles that E Fowler for example is an artist who started her own space. Co founded a space called artists curated projects and. She said that one of the reasons maybe the reason she founded the space was to give artists more agency. That artists aren't just there to produce objects for this market and in her case it was giving herself more agency. She was opening up her own apartment to creating exhibitions for her friends for artists. She really cared about and she let other artists curate. The show so the you can see and the way that artists are doing things in town. I think we saw this with Laura Owens space as well That closed down recently. That artists are opening their own spaces as a way of participating really actively in the market. I'm how do they spacey's operate of a M spacey's that sell work or do they completely avoid being market related? I think they're both You know it's all over the spectrum and But for the New York Times on artist Ron Commercial Galleries in particular. Because I wanted to show that it's even part. It's not just that artist run spaces pop ups here and there garage. Space or apartment galleries. It's not that they're it's not just that they're part of the ecosystem there actually part of the market here that you can. There are over a dozen artist run galleries that are part of the art market and four of them are in freeze this year. Roy Now you've also done this piece really interesting piece which is actually one of the newspapers. Dailies that we're having at freeze La and that's really interesting because you to Hebron nonprofit space in the rise of these sort of grassroots spacey's. Can you tell us more about And a few of those are founded by artists. I was talking about the underground museum which has been phenomenally successful successful. Maybe not financial standards. It's A it's a nonprofit but in terms of bringing out a community and appealing to community and having these great events in what they call the Purple Garden in in their backyard. I'm talking about art and practice. Mark Bradford's nonprofit that is in Lamar Perk and has a social justice component to it The mistake room led by Cesar Garcia. So basically what I realized I. I was absolutely fascinated by this by this topic because I realized that about five years ago. A number of these alternatives basis Were founded or opened in Los Angeles that we have some legacy alternative spaces like lace and then lax art which started in. May Be two thousand and five thousand six an eighteenth street center as well but in addition to the legacy alternative art spaces a whole new generation of of alternative spaces. was founded just about five or six years ago an in the story which you read. Aaron Kristof all the curator at the Hammer Museum says that she thinks a number of these spaces were created in order to promote artists of color. Roy So so is was that absorption that perhaps the more mainstream museums weren't doing enough of that and therefore there was a need for need to Philip Abbas essentially yet. That's the point that she made and I think it's a really interesting point to consider I don't think people thought really consider the role of these spaces together because they're so new But when you look at them yes I think. The underground museum is definitely Has has developed a niche for itself Because the mainstream art museums are not doing that kind of programming. Was there any sense in which they also responding to the mainstream art market because in a way perhaps a false binary but one imagines that in in terms of the ecosystem that we keep talking about on the one hand you have the commercial gallery and then these grassroots species are in a way a sort of diametric opposite to them when you took into these people? Did they talk about the market and how what they're doing relates to yet? I don't know if we were focusing so much on the market and I don't know if I I don't know if I buy the binary feel the space is I was looking at. Are THESE MID SIZED SPACES? That are one step away from being museums. They tend to be Kunsthall. They don't have their own clutch shots But they certainly for another another example of an institution I looked at for the story is the ICS La which has undergone a lot of changes in the last decade because it moved from Santa Monica where it used to be known as the Santa Monica Museum of Art to downtown La. Right across from a Greyhound bus station so you have a very present homeless community and the La has always done these really fascinating so both both Ad. Ics La and in its previous incarnation as the Santa Monica Museum of Art. This institution has has a history of doing really interesting shows that do not follow the art market. That are just a skewed. So I don't think they're opposed to the art market but In many cases they anticipate the market. You know giving McLean Thomas or William Pope L. Major surveys before they became art market darlings. So you know maybe maybe. I'm understanding your point a little bit. Better that yeah. These alternative spaces are trying to make space for artists who are not anointed yet or at all indeed that you mentioned there about the movement of a particular from Santa Monica to downtown. Tell me something about the geography of L. L. A. And how that has shifted we we hear constantly about shift in York from various neighborhoods to another one how how does. La Shifted L. L. A. is so spread out. That's actually one of the really interesting things. I discovered reporting this story for our newspaper on the alternative space. Is the one kind of newsy through line? Is that a number of these? Spaces are reducing the number of exhibitions. They hold each year so instead of four or five. They're looking at three or two and it's because people in Lake can't get out to see all the there also financial reasons. I imagine too but Galleries as well. It's really hard to see all the gallery shows within a six week period so if the galleries could start keeping their shows for eight to ten weeks I would benefit from it personally La is so spread. Out I mean they're so so there's no one center And even when we say downtown we often don't mean one thing some people say downtown and they're talking about the area where houser in Girth has opened some people say downtown and they're talking about where night gallery is located That even the downtown galleries are spread out. And that's not counting all the galleries in Hollywood the gallery still in Culver City and galleries further east one imagines a my my idea of La is the the. The communities are not geographies as much as related to the art colleges that you had groups of artists that emerged from from the arcologies and they have developed particular strands of work. I mean is not completely consistent but it is that still the case. Yeah I mean I certainly see socially. I don't think I see that in terms of the types of work that artists make but I see that socially in that yes there are certain groups of friendships or certain cliques that develop Because of where people went to art school But I think it's actually gotten more complicated than that because a gallery is another form of community right. The the dozen artists who show at a particular gallery get to know each other that way Or last night I went to an opening for Kalita Rowell's who was having her first major show at various small fires and she's a black female artist a painter And Her community showed up. Her community includes Dietrich Bracken's and genevieve Danyard who are both Both artist she knows and dietrich shows with that gallery and introduced her to the gala wrist. her community also includes. Amy Cheryl D- Who flew in from New York for it. So what you're saying is that. La's less definable in terms of groups of artists Certain geographies in other words. There's lots of very individual or two working but actually within a very dynamic seen yet I would love for some artist or sociologist to map out all the connections between among the artist. It used to be that I could see the clicks in terms of the art schools more clearly but I just think that. La has become a more robust and complex place. You were talking earlier on about not getting the tone to see everything as with London. Freeze week now in. La has dozens and dozens of shows opening. Can you just give a flavor of some of the things that you're most excited about? Particularly in terms of the public shows the public shows. Yeah well I just. This weekend went to the opening of all of them witches. Which is the biggest group show? I have ever seen Jeffrey deitch Gallery here. I know he's done. Some big group shows in New York but it was curated by Laurie. Simmons artist and Dan Nadel and it's about our artists mainly women artists who make which he works. Who HAVE A witchy sensibility? So it's not literally not artists who identify as witches although there are a couple in the show But but artists who are using occult imagery as metaphors often for body and gender issues And it was really I. One of the things I loved about the show is how intergenerational it was it wasn't just L. A. Artists Artists from all over but you had younger artists. You had kind of hot young thing artists and then you had some second wave feminist artists as well so Israeli. It was really fun that way. It was a great opening. You interviewed Lucci to who todd for the current issue of the newspaper of course and she has a show in a moment right it open last night so I just saw Cheetah Hurtado's show at lack Ma and I had never seen so much for work in one place. I don't think anyone has until the show was it. This is a version of the show that originated at the Serpentine And I was really amazed by how textured some of the work is I just also I feel like it's a sweet spot for me. I love this kind of her early. Surrealist work the work that has the most direct relationship tog- Wolfgang Palin who has her second husband. I just love that stuff of shows at the major spaces you know. I haven't seen the hammer. Museum has a Paul McCarthy drawing show that I haven't seen yet I need to make it over. I think the gallery shows are really where it's out right now and one discovery for me recently. Is the artist. Mio Sheba Roche. Who died last year? They're not not just one but three galleries in La decided to show her work at the same time. And that's upright. Now it's at the pit at night gallery and at Louisiana. Hey Zeus And it's it's installation work That deals with the fragility of the Human Body and interesting ways. I make it sound like Eva Hesse. But it's not but we can't really talk about the LA scene without talking about somebody who's very sad lease is lost to the La seen recently in. That's John Bell sorry the OCC died and John was a giant of a man in physical stature but also a giant of a man in terms of his influence in the La saying can you. Can you say something about about that jury? I'd love to talk about John You know some people ended up calling him a gentle giant which I think is is totally wrong. I mean you're you're right he he. He was very tall then but he was very sharp or rigorous in in ways that were just wonderful A friend of mine artists named Kim shown stat worked for him for many years as his studio manager and she said something that has just resonated with me ever since his death that he knew how to put just the right. Wait on things That means on words on images you know. His his sense of humor I guess I'm talking about his artwork. A little bit just how he managed to kind of rescue conceptual art from its own self. Seriousness own GRAVITAS. But then there's the then there is the contribution he made by being this really generous person on very very active on the scene and that consisted of being a teacher but also extraordinary support for other artists right. Yeah and it was all. It was all of one piece really for him. I mean I've lived here for fifteen years now and for the first ten years. When he was well he was out and about openings he. He showed up for people and as a teacher he. He literally gave artists some of their best ideas in one thousand nine hundred seventy. When he was teaching his famous Post Studio Classic Keller's He had this assignment list. That was over a hundred ideas and some of them seem really quaint. Now like make make a work of art using walkie talkies and I you know. I've always looked at that list and thought you know how generous for him to come up with. All of these ideas share them with his students. Somebody today could make a career out of any one of those ideas and here he is sharing over a hundred with his students I remember when I interviewed on a Leah's Sabban when she had a big show at at spruce mongers here And she was Really good friends with John She told me that he helped her. Come up with the title for one of her series that she was stuck in. He came up with this title threadbare for the series Where she made paint. Look like a canvas perfect title but also just another example of how generous he was in his thinking. And that's not always the case. Is it because for you often t great teachers unnecessarily great artists and with John? He you know he had major retrospectives actually towards the end of his life for instance the one that was at tate modern no began in in the US and so in a way. He's quite rare in the sense that he both managed to achieve great fame and continue to teach and continue to have that kind of community influence. If you look absolutely and I also love. You can go back through his work. The artwork that he put into the galleries and you can see him. Think about teaching. You know he has his early video series where he has like. It's like teaching a plant the alphabet he was interested in teaching he was interested in communication. He's one of our great great artists of language. And particularly when you say when you talk about language well actually. There's two things I think of one is him singing. So lewitt's instructions on the one hand in a video but also the text paintings which were normally influential. Exactly exactly I mean. I think he's right up there with like Lawrence Weiner in terms of how he uses words to open up. The imagination is indeed a great loss. Joey thanks so much for coming on today and for telling us about La and enjoy the rest of the weekend freeze. I was happy to do it then and I will enjoy the week freeze. Los Angeles is held a paramount pictures studios in Hollywood and the project. Section is staged on a New York City films that at the studios the Books Co curated by Tompkins reverse and our deputy art market editor Margaret. Carrigan spoke to her on the set. So Pilar last year the back lot projects were maybe one of the more popular areas of the fair. It's a really interesting set. Up Real utilizes the paramount studio. And I'm unique way there's also plenty of like area to hang out you know there's a food court back here Can you kind of set the stage for our listeners? About what they what the lot brings and how you kind of. Try and plan for presenting work here. Yes I first of all I have to say that this is a really unique thing in the context of art fairs. There's a lot of I take place around the world. Pres is one of the most renowned fairs internationally but by bringing it to Los Angeles and choosing to do it at paramount. It just provides this really unique opportunity for a new context to present contemporary art projects in and of itself presenting art work. The back lot is a little bit like trying to sue site public artworks. Because you have to take certain things into account In terms of you know the elements and And how things can physically be installed here. What kind of media? You can percents But this is so different and unique as well because you have an active studio lot and it looks like New York or Chicago. This is This is a space that already has a visual read to it that has its own history and its own particular connotations and so that becomes kind of a set of parameters around which you have to develop the project. Some of the projects are staged within the specific buildings. That are on the back. Lot others are more strategically placed around the back. Lot itself in our side and others are like onsite performances. How do you plan all of those? And what are some of the specific logistics? You have to take into account. Well I mean we've got We had a number of interesting proposals. That were forged by galleries. We started with that in terms of departure point and trying to see what kind of narratives that we could call out of of of the works to to bring them together We from there began thinking about other artists that we wanted to engage some of which work with galleries that are presenting in the main fair and others. That don't and so that became an an interesting and unique Way Of beginning to organize and beginning to lay the groundwork for the plan You know moving beyond that you have to recognize that this is so unlike doing an exhibition in a museum or gallery or White Cube space where you have control over display and here we have to kind of think about all these things as they develop and and there are certain things that you have to troubleshoot that you wouldn't necessarily have predicted like a slopes on the ground or or you know you're planning for your planning. What kind of work can be shown in an interior space? But knowing that it's not watertight and in case it rains it could be completely drenched so you have to just kind of think through that and that in and of itself informed decisions about a diversity of media the back lot also has a lot of other things going on as you mentioned. You've got the food court if you will Other other organizations organizations are being presented as well and it's a really dynamic and vibrant setting in which the art is activated across all these different points. Can you talk a little bit? About what kind of art you brought this year and what some of the specific projects are and what kind of La Flavor they lend to. What is a New York backdrop? Well many of the artists do have a connection to la or are based in Los Angeles and others are not other we wanted. Also you know. Create this kind of outward looking conversation about things that might touch back to The specific context of Los Angeles and other things that are more global in focus You know we have an artist from Brazil who is from Hassi. Brazil named Jonathan Genre J. for example that has a wonderful video piece that he filmed on the streets of San Paulo and hissy fit where he asked passersby to open up their wallets and reveal their contents and they kind of slowly open the their bill folds and inside you see all these very personal very private things that actually indicate a lot about the individuals that those wallets belong to and so it's here on the back lot it doesn't half tied to La in any way specifically but it can speak more broadly to these other kinds of issues that the market connects to. And so I think that creates an interesting dialogue. We're also were interested in working with artists from the Americas and that somebody that reconsolidate my co curator and I had been thinking about before for a previous project And didn't have the chance to work with so this is a chance to to present his work here. In the fair another artist that is international that that also gives a historic nod to California is Tanya Khanjani and. She's an artist from Mexico. Who is making a piece? That's based on images that. Dorothy Elaine took of the Japanese Americans in the interment camps specifically in Manson are and and Sunita during World War. Two and her work deals a lot with With labor issues with technologies around textiles. And and so this is a piece that in a way hearkens back to the documentation of Japanese Americans. Most of whom were you know. Many of them were hailing from Los Angeles who were forced into weaving these camouflage nets that would cover military vehicles during the war and so she's recreating these kind of makeshift looms That were that were made Where they were weaving in. That's not that far from here where this happened historically. So she's kind of asking us to look at that history not to forget that passed and then to think about the detention centres for migrants today. thinking about issues of labor around around migrants today and and incarceration So you know. I think that that's a kind of a project that really hits on a lot of levels of things that we were thinking about and then may you may jump from there to other conversations with other artists that we're engaging for projects here. There are a lot of work in the project section. This year that are very political. But there's still a certain amount of playfulness to a lot of it as well. Maybe just by virtue of the fact that it is on a set. We're you know you're not sure what's real and what's not and a couple of the artists as well have really kind of drawn in that. Hollywood history and played with a little bit. Can you talk a little bit about a few of those Yeah I mean. I think there's a kind of messaging that can happen in any one of the works but yet at the same time doesn't have to hit you over the head And I and I think that different artists have different approaches and And it's really about again creating dialogues and and making you think You know the artists been sent Ramos. Who is from Los Angeles deals with archives? It looks at historical representations of Latinos in Mexican Americans and Chicano specifically in In the entertainment industry and so his his project. Is this kind of calling of images over the course of many decades Going back to the nineteen twenty s Some of which pertain to Hollywood. But also how they get circulated and manifested in popular culture. And so within that. You know you you. You're looking at these issues of representation but you might be also looking at an image of the Frito Bandido or Cheech and Chong up in smoke so it kind of conjures a lightheartedness and pokes fun at that as well But then it also makes you really think about stereotypes and and lack of representation But other artists you know Also have a whimsy to the work that that kind of brings you kind of full circle with other art histories in southern California. I'm thinking specifically of of maybe like Sayer Gomez or we'll boone or among Thomson for example. Who have all created these really amazing sculptures? That are sited on the back lot. And you're just kind of thinking about This kind of history of art making that deals with them materiality that kind of specific to technologies that were developed in in in this area in this region and that makes me think about You know the light and space movement and You know artists that were dealing with vacuum formed plastics and all these These great kind of materials that were new at their time and that interplay with technology is either kind of going backwards in time to. I don't know a more direct approach to the media or let me just mention for example you know with with wills piece He has three works in the in the project section. And he's taken these toy kits that were developed in the fifties and very popular in the fifties and sixties model model kits at which in and of themselves may reference Hollywood films from like creature from the black lagoon or Frankenstein. Or any of those kind of Harsh Genre films. But they were then made into like these little metal toy my cats that people could build and then they would paint with their hobby craft paint and he's upscale them and cast them in bronze and removed them from their original sets configurations to create these new types of sculptures. I think the witches sculpture is my absolute favorite. So far that I've seen it's really funny and it just kind of shocks you like. Why is this even here and it makes a lot of questions so great. This isn't really wonderful. Thank you so much. Thank you freeze. Los Angeles begins today and is on until Sunday. The sixteenth of February. You can follow our live reporting from fair at the newspaper Dot Com. We'll be looking at a new show at the Metropolitan Museum but I hear review the top stories on our website this week.

Welcome back now. The Metropolitan Museum of art in New York has just opened a sweeping exhibition about the region known as the Western Suheil. The vast area on the southern edge of the Sahara that today encompasses Senegal Mali Mauritania and tracing the region's cultural legacy the show features. Some two hundred objects dating from the first millennium through to the late nineteenth century much of the Suhel has been rocked by instability in recent years including devastating droughts and violent attacks by Islamist militants. That's Kenny our senior editor in New York talked with the organizer of the exhibition. The met Curator Elise Alabama about some of the ideas underlying show. At least how did you up with the idea for this exhibition? This is an important topic for the humanities. That's been neglected by art history and four years when we were closing our last major African Art Exhibition Congo Majesty power. I decided that the moment was right to turn our focus to another region of the continent that had a very different history very different relationship with the world at large And I have been following the work of archaeologists Rodrick Macintosh. Who's now at Yale University for some twenty five years and he and I had been in conversation about the fact that This was a timely topic to address Given the importance of the cultural legacy of this region and The security issues that were developing on the ground and so In Two Thousand Sixteen We proposed this project For the museum and It's been a four year a long process of developing it and Bringing it into the public eye does the show have a thesis or an argument and a critical feces for this project is what is the role of figuration and the art of the Suhel This is a region that Today is around ninety five percent Islamic And it has a long history with Islam and yet When we think of art from this particular region we tend to think about figurative wood sculpture. And so I was very interested. In looking at what? The historical precedents are for the classical doggone and Bama sculptures that everybody is more familiar with and to see how deep in to the many layered. History figuration goes. There's been significant pressure in recent years for the Restitution of historical artifacts and objects from African countries. Did that pressure make it difficult to arrange loans of prized objects from the region? Quite the contrary We had Enthusiastic responses from All of the colleagues in across the Western Suhel that we borrowed works from as You. Doubtless know Museum projects were all about relationships and We as an institution That has a long history of organizing exhibitions of African Art Have very deep ties with our colleagues in the region and When we explain to them what the goal of this project was they were very keen to be a part of it and to be partners I would say that the the most complicated part of this was that Most of the institutions that we borrowed from our government institutions and so there were many government ministries that had to finalize the approval of loans so that was a bit of a lengthy process but Then the other complicated dimension to a project like this is The the lack of established networks for packing and shipping arts Back and forth between This region and The US we had actually quite a few Twists and turns In Nizhny Chair of the airport's cargo facility unexpectedly was shut down because of security issues Just as we were supposed to be sending The works that were presenting from share and And it really was A nail biting Experience to try and troubleshoot that situation But miraculously every work that We had hoped to bring over from the region. is now on display in the Special Exhibition Gallery. That were preparing to open in some cases the mechanics of arranging the loans and transporting these masterpieces must have been really tricky I see that there's a three ton. Eighth Century megaliths from car How did you get that? To the United States yes And three tonnes as I know now translates into eight thousand pounds and This stone megaliths from Senegal which was carved out of the laterite soil in the region where it was once part of an outdoor Installation sort of like Stonehenge was something that I very was very keen on having as the point of entry into this exhibition from the moment that I propose this project I really felt that Not only does African art too often get decoupled from a sense of history but also We needed a true landmark To ground all of the great works of art that we were assembling And so We literally had to lift this monument out of its Usual position and front of if Ifan Museum in downtown Dakar Have IT Placed in an enormous crate and shipped by sea It was Over a month Traveling to get to New York and We saw that. The most complicated part of the journey was actually making it out of the loading dock and into the upstairs galleries Navigating The museums arms and armor and medieval galleries but It was an epic undertaking. And I'm an enormous fan of my colleague who's our registrar who orchestrated all of these arrangements. You could say that the region is in some ways crisis own today couldn't to yes what's happening unfolding in this region Is is is very troubling. It's very It's caused for enormous concern. it's a crisis that began in two thousand eleven and has not ameliorated And friends and colleagues in the region Unfortunately don't see Relief in sight other is Growing violence and tension That has been caused by Extremists Who IN THE CASE OF MOLLY? At times have occupied nearly the northern half of Country And I know that in my experience very significant dimension of the for example the Mauleon and the Nigerian economies depended on cultural tourism and the fact that the instability in this region is by necessity leading to less visitation as putting enormous strain on people's livelihoods on and cultural sites Across the region. You also have Islamic militants leading an all out assault. Amal as cultural heritage. Don't you yes. The ICONOCLASM that occurred in a city like Timbuktu was really sobering awakening to the fragility of Cultural Heritage in this region And how vulnerable So many of the storied Unesco World Heritage sites even I'll have been We have as one of our collaborators. The Mama Hydara Library in Timbuktu. Who has lent several of the manuscripts that were taken out of Timbuktu? drawing The period when the al Qaeda affiliates had occupied Timbuktu and were Destroying libraries and other monuments and this crisis is not over All of those materials that were moved to Bamako for safekeeping are still there indefinitely. People do not feel that they can move Precious documents like the ones that we are exhibiting in Suhel in Timbuktu at present. It's still still too tenuous the security situation on the ground.

528 - 14 Tips to Kill Impulse Buying and Save Money

"Hello, my friends, I'm Laura, Adams and author speaker and consumer advocate. I've been writing and hosting money girls since two, thousand eight and I am so glad you are here with me today this week I'm pulling a show out of the archive for you that I also need to hear have you noticed how everything seems to be on sale right now I'm getting. Bombarded with emails from all my favorite stores about sales, you could go broke saving so much money as we spend more time at home due to the pandemic I think it's a little easier to be tempted by online sales almost as a form of entertainment. So this show is packed with very actionable tips about how to pull back and avoid those impulse purchases. Please enjoy it and I'll be back next week with a new show. Okay onto today's show called fourteen tips to stop impulse buying and save money, which is episode. Number five hundred twenty eight. No matter how frugal you are no one is immune for making impulse purchases from time to time, and this is such an important topic because the more you give in to those impulses, the more harmful it can be to your financial life. Overspending is a common barrier to achieving key financial goals whatever your goals may be whether you're trying to save fifteen percent of your income for retirement or maybe you're. Really trying to build your emergency fund from scratch whatever your goals are. They typically entail carving out of your budget to go toward that goal, and if you're caught in a cycle of bad spending behavior that can really get between you and your goal. So in a Lotta cases, controlling those spending impulses can be the key that allow you to have more money to actually achieve what you want so in many. Getting a grip on how you spend money that makes all the difference and whether you can achieve your goals or not. So I think that the tips today's show will give you some ideas about ways to really kind of rain in your spending ways to think about spending in a more mindful way you probably won't be able to use all of the tips but if just one of them helps you think more carefully the next time you spend, maybe prevent you from buying something that you really didn't need that I will consider my mission here accomplished. Instead of caving into impulses I want you to develop strategies that stand in the way between the compulsion to spend and actually spending if you can put more time between that impulse and actually doing the thing that you don't want to do a lot of times. That's what allows your brain to kind of settle down and realize. This is just an impulse. This is not something I really want to do and just about all of these or tips that I personally use to help myself slowdown stay more mindful stay more in the moment when it comes to spending. So let myself get out of control or find myself regretting a purchase that didn't need in the first place. So, let's get into it. I'M GONNA cover fourteen tips and tricks to resist bad spending habits. So you can save more money. So the first tip that I use is shop with a list I don't care if you're shopping for for groceries, holiday gifts or even close if you had a list of what you really need to buy challenge yourself to stick to the list I mean you're always going to find something that you didn't know you wanted right it's Oreos in the grocery store or designer shoes that are on sale. We can always find things to buy and just because you find something. That looks great or is on sale doesn't mean you need to buy it? So keep a list of things that you really truly need cultivate that list over time and use that as your shopping plan to stay focused. So this can work whether you're shopping online or you're in a retail store it can really help you become less distracted by anything that's not on the list and help you put in the cart just the things you need, check out and move on. Tip. Number to use a waiting period rule, this is one I implement all the time. So Creator rule that before buying anything over a certain amount maybe for you, it's twenty five dollars or a hundred dollars. Some amount that you'll give yourself time to think about it, and that time period could range from an hour to a month depending on your propensity to splurge. But certainly the longer you can wait the longer you can procrastinate purchasing something the better because the more likely you won't do it. A good rule of thumb is to give yourself at least twenty four hours to decide if buying something. Is a need or if it's just a random impulse purchase that twenty four hours gives you time to quote sleep on it and I think that really does allow your mind to refresh and reset about the purchase. It allows enough time for your impulse to settle down. So you can approach the purchase with a clear mind if you really do need something if you're shopping in a brick and. Mortar store and find something that you think you can't live without try taking a picture of it and take a picture of the price as well. Go home, and then you can revisit the item after the waiting period has expired and even use the information to do comparison shopping online. Let's say you're shopping locally or you're on vacation in your shopping or your downtown main street shopping and you. See something that you don't believe that you could buy later online get the information from the shop owner, get the card with the phone number and the name of the person that you could get back to later on. If you do WANNA buy it so don't feel like you have to buy something just because you're a local store you can certainly revisit that purchases well after the waiting period TIP number three calculate an item's value in time. This is a big one especially when you're first starting out, maybe you're not making a lot of money since suspending impulse is often emotional if you can engage the logical part of your brain, that's a powerful way to stop the impulse. So one tactic that I have often used is think about how much time it would take you to earn what? An item costs. For example, if you earn twenty five dollars an hour after taxes buying a two, hundred, fifty dollars, suit cost you ten hours of work. So is it worth the equivalent of a long Workday Day? Now only you can decide the answer to that question, but being more logical shopper can instantly change your mindset. So you think more rationally and you put the brakes on a spending impulse. TIP number four don't buy anything that cannot be returned sometimes the most tempting purchases are the ones that you can't return. Maybe it's a super low final clearance price that's online and you think, wow, that's just too good to pass up. But sometimes there's a reason that a markdown down. Is Mark Down and marked down so much because it hasn't sold very well like maybe it doesn't fit well, if it's clothing or maybe it's different from the picture we've all experienced how terrible it is to regret buying something you can't return at least buying something you regret that you can return allows you to undo the damage once you come to your senses. So make a pact with yourself that you're not gonNA buy anything that's on final markdown clearance less. You are just one hundred percent sure that it's something you need and it is on your list of things that you need. Tip Number Five, reevaluate what you already own. If you're a compulsive shopper, you probably have a lot of stuff like a closet full of clothes or maybe a garage full of gadgets that you rarely use. So instead of buying the next item that you probably don't need reevaluate what you already have sometimes paring down what you have is actually the key to figuring out what you really use. So you can find more satisfaction in those things instead of accumulating more things and I'm a big believer in buying fewer but. Things another strategies to organize your belongings in better ways so that it's just easier to see what you have. I really enjoyed arranging my closet and might kitchen using the method that's made famous by Marie Condo. If you haven't heard of her, she's a really interesting Japanese. Organization professional and her techniques and mindset for approaching clutter have become a global phenomenon. So. You might want to check out a couple of her bestselling books. One is the life changing magic of tidying up and the other is sparked -joy, which is kinda companion to the first one. Either one of them are fantastic and I'll put links to these books in the for the show on the money girl section at quick and dirty tips dot com. Tip Number six plan your splurges. If you're exceptionally prone to impulse purchases trying to eliminate them altogether maybe pointless instead give yourself permission to make smaller purchases on a regular basis. If you plan for, let's say one new inexpensive item a month or a relatively expensive treat once a quarter that can keep you from random binge buying setting aside a small amount of your budget as an impulse fund can give you a manageable and responsible outlet for spontaneous purchases. Tip number seven, give yourself a no spending challenge set up a personal challenge that cuts impulse spending over a set amount of time. For instance, you might only buy essentials for an entire month. So essentials could be groceries, housing utilities, and insurance those sorts of things only those for an entire month and cut out everything else that's frivolous or unnecessary. You might cook at home every day for a month. Instead of eating out, you might not buy any new clothes for sixty. Days or you might wait twenty four hours before buying anything more expensive than a certain dollar amount. That's the waiting period that I previously mentioned turning no spending days into a game can make them easier to sustain and they really do help you clearly identify what your spending triggers are such as surfing the web for clothes or dining out too frequently. Once you figure out what you're doing than is making your impulse purchasing possible you can be specific about cutting back that activity. And if cutting all frivolous spending is just too intense, consider identifying categories that cause trouble such as shoes or expensive cocktails and cut those out during a period of time. Plan the best ways possible just cutting back on surfing the web or doing any window shopping also put reminders of your challenge in strategic places like a sticky note in your wallet or on Your Credit Cards, and if you slip up just resume the challenge right away, you might even impose a good cause penalty. So if you slip up, maybe you do something like match any slip-ups as. To your favorite charity. Okay back to tips to kill your impulse spending number eight unsubscribe from retail newsletters. The next time you see a retail letter in your email inbox with attempting promotion or sale look for the unsubscribe link at the bottom and break the cycle something. You just happen to see on sale that you don't really need doesn't save you money. It just hurts your financial life. So what's out of sight will be out of mind so get rid of those email newsletters that seem to tempt you. That's one less way to spend money compulsive lay. Number Nine, only shop with a clear head. This is really important. Be Sure to notice when and why you make impulse purchases. Are you sad stressed, tired tipsy or all of the above you've probably heard the term retail therapy don't do that guys. There are many better ways to Easter ask that do not involve spending money even just being tired or hungry. When you're shopping can be dangerous instead of thinking about a purchase logically, you just end up loading up your cart and buying. So consider putting off shopping until another day when you're more rested and you don't have a grumbling stomach spending to boost your. Mood might work in the moment, but it really hurts you in the long run. It can lead to a vicious cycle where you're upset or stressed and you buy something impulsively and then you get stressed more because you just bought something impulsively. So don't give in to that shopping in the evening can be a particularly bad time to make decisions. If you're home alone you're bored or maybe a little impaired after a few glasses of wine. So remember never to shop when your restless or you're having a bad day instead call a friend go for a walk or take a hot bubble bath to cheer yourself up. Tip Number ten never shop for entertainment. If hitting the mall or Main Street shopping is hurting your finances, change your idea of entertainment. When you put yourself in the center of shopping temptations, you're probably GONNA buy something. So stay away from Alex or your favorite stores when you've got time to kill and you need to curb impulse buying and don't hang out with friends whose lives revolve around shopping when it just isn't in your budget when you really need something, take that list and go shopping alone it can be a more mindful experience that keeps you more in control keeps you calm compared to the chaos of shopping with friends or kids Tip Number Eleven, read the reviews. The next time you're tempted to buy something, read all the product reviews. You can especially the bad ones. oftentimes, those bad reviews are exaggerated claims but sometimes they show you the truth about the bad side of a product that may make you realize that it's not worth buying. Didn't number twelve, minimize the damage when you find yourself in a situation where you're about to give into a buying impulse online, try putting the item in your cart, but then leave the site in some cases choosing the product may be enough to satisfy your urge to shop even if you don't go through with the purchase now, if you're in a store and you feel like you're overcome with the desire to buy lots of stuff, consider taking one inexpensive item to the checkout and then get out of the store with minimal financial damage. That's not an ideal habit follow. But stopping while you're ahead maybe away the e ease away from shopaholic tendencies. Tip number thirteen think about the last purchase you regret before you pull the trigger on your next shopping impulse. Think about the last time you made a buying decision that you still regret that may reveal a pattern in your behavior that you WanNa, squelch decide that you will not let yourself make another bad impulse purchase today that you'll be sorry about in the future. Tip Number Fourteen remember your goals the idea behind curbing impulse spending is so you can use that money to achieve your most cherished financial goals instead. So write down your goals and keep them in strategic places that you can't avoid. If you choose the wrong path for instance, you might use a black sharpie pen to write your goal on your debit and your credit cards. You might put it on a sticky note or a laminated card for your refrigerator your desk at work your bathroom mirror inside your wallet, use it as a screen saver for. Your mobile devices and computers creating visible triggers that prompt you to think about what you want to accomplish can be a powerful way to sidestep destructive financial behavior. Any strategy you can use to keep your goals top of mine we'll help you focus on what's most important and reinforce your commitments. Your goals will guide your behavior but only if you remember them the best way to resist any impulse is to put time between the impulse and the action. So the more time you give yourself to settle down, remember your goals and reconsider the purchase the. It becomes to resist. If you have a money question is.

#RealTalk&#127897;in Real-time ep 3: It's all for love.

"Hello all welcome to another episode of Real Talk in real time your behind the scenes access to the creative process of real talk a blog and where hiller interviews with other creative souls and how they keep things real in their lives and objects but mostly off the cuff musings brands raise and a lot of real talk. It's interesting that when I wrote this new introduction. Tv show a have deja Vu moment. In fact I remember correctly. The introduction to modern hippie radio debut episode was very very similar in so it's Kinda cool that a little bit of a full circle which is nice which is awesome. Because that reiterates for me that these hind the scenes type of interviews and thoughts in the process is important to me because apparently keep doing it so anyway not to get too off track. But so I'm coming to you a few days. After Valentine's Day it was my intention to relief episode three of real talk in real time on Valentine's Day because that would have coincided with whole Friday episode that I had intended to help ever as I mentioned in last week's email if read it might be picky kid. I told you that new podcast. Podcast episodes would be released on Sundays. And I would alternate podcast episodes with my personal essays by typically release on Sundays. Well since then I've gotten a few comments from you. Lovely people indicating that accused Is a better idea for a podcast episodes in that. I should keep my stories on Sundays. well I like it but I love to know if that's a consensus. Would you want to get content for me twice a week? I mean. Of course I know many of you will pick and choose when you ingest myself. So there's that and I love love love doing the podcast episodes would. So here's the thing. Please respond to email updates like the email update at. You may be reading right now or leave a comment on the website semi email hollow H. O. L. L. A. J. dot com. And let me know is twice the week too much is alternating weeks for the podcast too little. I really WanNa know your thoughts. Maybe I'll do a survey in in any event. I think it's safe to say that. Let's stick with doing half-and-half so maybe a podcast and a story on Sundays for the rest of this month and then once I hear back from all of you thank you will say in March. I'll firm up The schedule for we'll talk in real time podcast episodes. How's that is I did? I hope that's good filthy Houston okay so going back to Valentine's Day. I did not publish anything on Valentine's Day did I. I may have done like a social close. I don't remember and anyway as I look back was wondering are people think the day which is just not the case to be perfectly honest people. I am exhausted between theater. Stuff clients off in my side retail hustle. South. Now podcast off. I am spent however as exhausted as I feel. I didn't WanNa miss an opportunity to get this episode out to you so it may be short and sweet but your ear box okay some other news the NF summit started on seven. And since. Then I know personally I have listened to some very interesting and creative I s I n F teas and Jay's I N T P's as well now for those of you who subscribes at I n F summit all of the video and audio from the summit will be available for. I think the next month or two months in any case you don't WanNa miss out If you subscribe. And you've missed any of the sessions fear not you can still listen and get in on the videos Any of the free goodies from each of the speakers speaking of which did you catch my session on Friday. Valentine's Day I know there were some technical issues with getting the emails out on. They went out a bit late. However you should have seen the links vital and I would really love to hear your feedback now. Personally I think I may have been a little too excited to talk to jazz Lord because I found the Roddick. Ya granted unbiased and I am my worst critic. I totally get that but I was watching and cringing like Oh my God who was crazy person so I would really love to hear. Hugh thing Of that session in also the free gift that I offer to anyone who subscribed to the summit is a couple of entry forty. Five minutes empowered soul session. So if you want to check out that free offer you can go to the I N F Summit Dot Com Backslash J. E. I. effeminate backlash J I will have a link to that in this show it of course now a little bit about my empowered soul session. So the whole idea of doing sessions came about. Because I'm I'm at the stage in my life where I'm pivoting. I'm sideways and going through a reinvention transition going back. I'm not this is only yes in forward but really it's more lateral than anything else and in doing that doing this these soul-searching conversations with myself and then I reached out to jazz and a couple other amazing creative people. We were just having these Really like casual conversations about where we honor lives where we want to be in our lives. And what does that? Look like in some of those trials in in you know inner critic stuff and so as I'm taking notes like well if we're having East Boston. These questions were going through these things. Perhaps this is something that I can do with my clients. Because that's a lot of the personal. Branding is whether you're launching a business or blah use. You still really need to have a focus on what your personal brand is and in doing that. Work with my clients and that's the foundation of a good marketing plan is understand what your personal brand. Isn't what your personal brand messages. I find that I'm doing this work anyway. Like what are you truly passionate about an? How do you want that to look? How do you want to feel howdy? One that to benefit other people and that is essentially the stuff that we were talking about it so that really became the foundation of what the empowered soul sessions are. And I'll talk more about that in some upcoming stuff in you know like I said if the summit an offering the forty five minute free Discovery Call to discuss that. And how can benefit you But also you can find the information on my site. J Irvine Dot Com specifically under the link. Unleash Your Voice. Anathema to business stuff going back to my Valentine's Day stop right so I'm not anti because I didn't release any like cute means or graphics. Or what have you? The thing is yes unexhausted but I get to celebrate a belated Valentine's Day with my hose next week when I go back to Washington kind of crazy that I've been in Florida since November need. The time has really flown by. But I'M READY TO GET THAT'S MR. So you may or may not see some lovey-dovey romantic style coming coming your way from me when I get back to Washington sweet but we'll see in in case the next real talking real time. Rt Archie episode will come to you next Sunday. Don't miss it because drum roll. I will be speaking to my very first guest on the radio. Talk in real time podcast.

That's coming for you I T's folks but in the meantime yes you can find real talking Rotan. Rt RT on. Google spotify stitcher offense speaker and I will have these links in the show as well a little bit more on this whole love theme for our month of love with a new. You're listening to this after on Wednesday but wait a minute. Shouldn't every day be love about love? Shouldn't we feel exude? The mob and Racing Day like why does it have to be one day which of course we know that the history Valentine's Day has nothing to do with love. But that's a diatribe. I'm not going to get into right now. Any HOODOO SO my other thoughts about love. Interestingly announced a new I guess at Tina Talk Tina Turner Song in my head with look at do with it. Meet up with that is on any so the other song has been like rotating in my head is put a little love. Your heart and I had an occasion to have mata confrontation one night and it was a confrontation with someone over the president number. Forty five I can't even bring myself to say his name and so now when I interact with this person that song plays in my head so that adults fit in her eye which is a horrible thing to say in. I regretted already. I'm so sorry didn't mean that I did. And and the other love songs has been playing in. My head is debarred st remember don't have any barge fans out there for the lover in. You. I'M GONNA have to put that the show that sued because you can kind of group that I really dating myself anyway to be perfectly honest this idea of love and forgiveness in what that means for me really stemmed from a photo that I released on Instagram of me in costume behind the scenes at twelve angry jurors which is the stage production that. I'm in right now. Just an adaptation of twelve angry men. This photo that I took I took the photo to sorta like show how much makeup on wearing for the show. I hate when he got each night. I put on my makeup and you have to look at yourself obviously than looking into my eyes and because of the hair that I have on leaked by have on. I look very much like my mother as a young. And for those of you who are not necessarily tune into my backstory in my Mama. Drama My bandini issues staring into my mother's is night after night has been very jarring for me. Actually and so at one point I had to Sorta whis per to her through my eyes. I forgive you not that I condone the emotional. Physical abuse suffered from my mother but that is released that. I've released connection to that so that I can. I can breathe. I can breathe through it. Still dealing with those emotions even as an adult. I'm still dealing with. Oh my God I wish I had a better mommy daughter relationship. I wish that I felt love from my mom. My mom cared for me. She she took care of me the best that she could at that place in her life. But I still have a lot of Sarah's I still have a lot of emotional baggage on caring but in a way I found a way to release that by talking to my mother through her eyes through my eyes but then also I see the strength of the amazing wonderful nurturing women that I've had in my life migrate odds and my aunts and my uncles. My Grandmother's very strong wonderful people. That help me become who I am. I see than in my too and I wasn't. I wasn't expecting that. So yeah of for anyone who's interested in seeing with that photo. Looks like I'll have a link in the sooners as well. So did I cover everything a lasting some other comments but I got about the podcast and I'm not gonNA name names. It wasn't anything bad but a good friend of mine. We probably connect every couple of months or so she said Oh. You're jumping on the podcast bandwagon. So that you don't have to write in more and her comment didn't did not come from a malicious place at totally i. She's a wonderful loving person but it made me think really like I'm being lazy by doing a podcast. No honey trust me. They're still a lot. That goes into releases a podcast now. Granted I had lunch with another dear friend business associate. But he's a friend is all in. He has a wonderful concept to release a podcast and I was like just do it. It's so easy so yes and no. It is easy in that I can record all my phone. I can download it and uploaded into sub sack and then you know I make little corrections to the transcripts for the podcast and then in creating graphic for isn't even totally necessary for the success of the podcast. I still do. I enjoy doing that but I still do. An outline just like when I'm writing oppose granted there are times when they sit down and just write into slows for the most part. I have the idea put the thought out within a NAP. It out how do I want this to look whereas the Star Wars middleware is end and I also do that for the podcast. These are my crazy off the wall thoughts but I still SORTA Kinda outline where I want to go because I could talk to you for for quite a bit actually just because but would you listen to. I don't even want to listen to someone I'm going to end their insane that I love doing this. Podcast I am so excited for Nixon. When visit here from my first guest Mr Stephen.

Start New Habits and Get Unstuck with Joe Gandarillas

"Jarvis Masters has steadfastly maintained his innocence since he was sentenced to death almost thirty years of. Innocent people on death row newly uncovered evidence posters those claims innocence. Believe. They found that women I would not been charged. You be the judge on dear governor the PODCAST. What a dagoes like innocent on death row listen to dear governor on the iheartradio APP on Apple podcast or wherever you get your podcasts. Beyond the beauty is a production of IHEART radio. I'm your host Bobby Brown. So my next guest is my friend Joe, who is not only my friend? He is my life coach. My Yoga instructor. He is so multifaceted and I wanted him on the show because I. He has helped me so much in ways that I never expected i. don't have a shrink and when I was going through a tough time, he really was there not to talk about my mother my. My brother or I grew up my husband, but really to talk about what I was going through now and not only just to talk about it, but gave me really concrete things to get through it and everyone who's listening could learn things like organization how to let things go, and basically just how to change your habits, so you could live your life better and less stressful. Here's our conversation. So I wanted to I. Tell You why Joe so important to me and also the funny way. We met I asked Joe this morning. Do you remember how we met? And he said I don't and I did so. He thinks we met at a barbecue right I. Thought we met at a barbecue. We shared the same dog Walker right and I must walk by and said Hello and whatever I'm not that he didn't make a strong impression, but for one of my anniversaries, my husband said we. We weren't going to buy each other gifts. And then one day the doorbell rang on a Sunday at three o'clock, and he said Oh I bought you a gift. I'm like what he said I bought. You are interior designers to come in and help you with the house for Dukes Bar Mitzvah and the doorbell rang and it was Joanna's husband Michael. Who is one of the most talented interior designers very renowned in magazines and you guys? Did this amazing job with the first floor of my house. It was so much fun, so we became friends dinner the whole thing work together, and then I left Bobbi Brown cosmetics, and I was having a little bit of a rough time in the beginning. Joe You called me one day in, you said. Can I come over and I I been going to yoga classes a lot and I said sure, and you said I'm a life coach, and I would like to give you on me one session, and I'm like what is a life coach like. I had no idea. And you came over, and we talked, and what I learned from that day was. It's not like going to a shrink. Talk about my and it gets analyzed right put. It's about what's going on in my life now. Actually, why don't you tell everyone what a life coaches? You know a lot of times people will compare life coach to shrink. And I always say the biggest difference. I think you kind of nailed it which is. In therapy, you can go to your past, and you deal with the emotions from the past issues from the past and that's really. Useful when when we need that, it's it's something really really helpful for people, but what a life coach does is. We look at what's happening in the present moment and we look at how the present moment can affect your future. Like. Where do you WanNa? Go? What are your hopes? What are your dreams? And then what's driving you crazy? Oh, absolutely, because what's driving us. Crazy is really often the doorway in right, because those are the things that often are holding back from reaching what we want. And, so you have to kind of process you've got to look at. What are the thought processes? What are the habit the things that you can begin to shift to make positive change so you could reach a higher level of performance, but you are not just a life coach. You are a well loved way too crowded. Yoga instructor in in Montclair. You know you help. Run your husband's business year businessman. You are a student. You have your degree as a health coach. I I am but I do and now you're just tell me you're in Grad School. I. There's nothing I don't do that I don't love, but I decided to go back to school because I want to learn more, and if I'm working with people. I, WANNA learn more about human potential human behavior, and if I could learn more about that stuff than I have more tools in my own toolbox to continue to be better, I'm always thinking about leveling up. Because when I level up, I can be better for my not only for my client, but I could ultimately be better for myself. But how did you even become a life coach? How did you even know that that was something yet? You know that's a great question. And and I'll try to give you the short version of. Of A. Long Story I spent almost thirty years in the retail business I started a store manager district manager, the thing that I love the most about it was the people aspect of the job and getting people to a better level of performance in their job. I took a lot of pride in that I got burnt out. What brought me to my knees? Right was a crisis was a health crisis that that got me I had been diagnosed with a form of spinal arthritis. Then left me near nearly crippled. I was thirty four. And I. Going to the best doctors in New York City and on one drug after another. Ending up in and out of the hospital. It wasn't until I found a holistic chiropractor. That man saved my life because he changed my diet supplementation, he said I'll have you off drugs in thirty days, but I two things. I had the support and encouragement of this incredible incredible doctor, but I had. I had incredible people around me. Part of the prescription was not only what I. What I put in my body, but he handed me a rubber band group of cassette tapes cassette tapes. Were We used back? Then they're meditation tapes. And he said you're going to start meditating start doing. Doing Yoga and I laughed and I thought I can't even bend over. I'll never be able to do anything physically and I started on this journey, and he said you will teach others one day what to do, and I I'll never forget when I sat in his office, and he said that that's that's your gift. I started doing yoga and then. I went through a yoga teacher. Training Program Been Teaching Yoga for fifteen years now I remember and I'm thankful. Every time I take that seat of the teacher I teach with the heart of. Uplifting the human spirit of making people feel better when they then when they came in, and I take that job really seriously, and the ironic thing is i. get to talk to people about not only how they move their body, but I get to talk to them about their life, and I use, either we have dr we call it a Dharma talk at the beginning and I teach them a lesson. You know something either from Yoga or something from I love those moments. I, do I I remember a bunch of those moments. So in a sense I've really been. Coaching Yoga students for fifteen years, but fast forward I got this book from student was called the charge and that student her daughter. WHO's in new? York Times bestselling author called me and said listen. This guy is somebody that you of all people should go take a course with, and so I went to take course with this guy called high performance. Academy is a life coach certification. Certification Program called Certified High Performance Coaching. So would you learn from? Everybody has the potential to have higher level of performance in their life, and that as a coach you can guide and mentor somebody on how people could move their life forward in a more positive way to create better habits to create new experiences for themselves to see what what what standing in their way and so. I have learned so much about communication about presentation. What do you wish that you did better in your life? Like what have it's? Do you struggle with that? You wish you could do better. No well. That's a great question. Sometimes saying no has been a problem for me so probably setting more boundaries for myself at different times in my life has been definitely hard. You Know I. AM definitely a people pleaser. We wake up as ourselves every single day and we have to decide who we want to be. And so I check in with myself all the time and. You know if I get into guy was in a funk the other day I. Tried to make a really conscious effort to not overthink things do pass for like. They just passed complete and I. If you said to me well, what was? About the other, I don't even know. But I felt like I was in a funk, and it was when I made the decision to feel something else. I was like well. I don't need to feel. I think people don't realize that positiveness the comes out and your attitude is so in your control my Gosh, you know peop- people like to blame other people. Yeah, it's amazing to me like the world just blames everybody else for their problems. I'm looking at myself I, but even with fighting which is normal with our husbands and our scholars. Have taught me, and I have learned instead of saying you attacked me. I say I feel attacked. And, so you know we all have those feelings and you can't blame someone else for how you feel. When you start listening to how people like that that sentence? It's really common sense. I hear it in my practice all the time. They made me feel right like nobody makes you feel anything. Somebody can do something that can create a feeling right, but. We can't blame other people for the feeling and you know what I loved. One thing you said before Bob. I deal with a lot of relationship things in my practice like you talked about getting back to the feeling. Right like that's right like we. We have feelings. See often. We attack our partner. You or you didn't do that, but listen it's. How did it make you feel and usually the other person? Will you know level down a little bit I'm curious from you like like. If you were to do something different today from yourself from your mindset from from an action, if it was just from the day, yes, kind of spent too much time on my instagram post today where? where I should have taken that thirty minutes and added to my walk outside, so I I did go out to walk, but I should've walked longer i. read the paper, but I need to then walk away from Social Media and go exercise sure and so make better choices what you're saying. I will come back to instagram. I can't promise I'M GONNA. Come back to my walk. That's right. We often put aside the things that are most important and so one of the things that I do with people. Is I get them to look at water? Their habits that can lead them to a more high performing life by the way it's a shift. It's not a Redo. Its using okay dry. You're the one that told me to start drinking two glasses of water before it coffee. Every day you said do it a bunch of times. It becomes a habit. And I do it and guess what now my second son who's who has coffee. Every morning has won't get off the couch until he has its two glasses of water. So. Yeah, it's it's impactful. Right in the body needs we. Just we just slept for depends right. Five seventy hours right and most of our bodies made up of water will. We've got to give water when we get up? Yeah, I mean for your beauty. Fear held for your brain. It's it's amazing. You taught me about you to death everything. It's elimination in. It's everything. Hey I'm andy. If you don't know me, it's probably because I'm not famous, but I did start. A men's grooming company called Harry's. The idea for Harry's came out of a frustrating experience. I had buying razor blades. Most brands were overpriced over designed and out of touch at Harry's. Our approach is simple. Here's our secret. We make sharp durable blades and sell them at honest prices for as low as two dollars each. We care about quality so much that we do some crazy things like by a world class. German Blade Factory. Factory obsessing over every detail means we're confident and offering one hundred percent quality guarantee. Millions of guys have already made the switch to Harry's so thank you if you're one of them, and if you're not, we hope you give us a try with this special offer. Get a Harry starter set with a five blade, Razor waited handle, Shave Gel, and a travel cover offered just three bucks plus free shipping just go to Harrys DOT COM and enter four four, four four at checkout. That's Harrys Dot com code, four, four, four four. Enjoy. Struggle with trying to to shift a new habit, but I always say if you start a new habit, and you do it for long enough. The old will get squeezed out. When you change your store, you can change your life. People get stuck in a story and people aren't know when you're willing to shift perspective, so you know. HOW DO PEOPLE GET UNSTUCK? Start with awareness. Start with what you want. What are your dreams? And then what's holding you back? What are the beliefs? What are the the habits? And how do you create new beliefs new habits? I, always say and I love I love something Wayne Dyer used to. He would get out of bed in the morning and he'd put his feet on the ground. He'd say thank you, thank you, thank you and I start my day like that and I think like we talking earlier. I say okay. How do own show up today? Like who do I WANNA BE? And then you know the the other things that people can do to get unstuck is have a ritual like what's your. What's your morning ritual? You talked about that earlier. You know whether that's you know knowing what you have to do for the day, but whether it's you know for me. My my morning ritual, go right in and I meditate for at least thirty minutes, sometimes an hour and a half, and to really depends on the day, but what are the rituals? We have to to put us into a better state of mind a double express. With one capital of half-and-half, though sometimes I do coconut milk depending. If I think I shouldn't have dairy, but that's after my water after I've left the dog out and fed the dog, said hello to my husband and read the New York Post. That is what I do first thing in the morning I am going to work on then closing that IPAD and going out to do my exercise before I answer emails or go on social media. So that's a commitment you're. You're willing willing to make an. I'm not right now. Yes, starting right now, great starting right now, and I'll tomorrow of. Before not. So see, you've already created something new that you can. You can begin to shift, and that's what I WANNA make. It really obvious for people like all nuts. What coaching is right like we ask the question. You say okay. Well I have a goal. I'd like to have more of this and not feel like I'm running, and then we go well. If there was something else, you could do to not feel like you were in such a rush. What would be one more thing that you would be willing to try schiff my morning by a half hour. set an alarm and just give myself. A half hour more of time, which I will use that time, not just for exercising or my morning ritual, but to give myself more time to put my because I literally come to work with the disaster of a bag that I pour it on the desk, and as we're having our first meeting I-, reorganize it because I didn't do it the night before. Just came up with two things. Oh, my God I'm going to be so officials viewpoint you got. You're really showing your viewers like how how like how we process and how you process things. So, what's a real common thing that people struggle with I think some of the most common things people struggle with him why they come to me are usually can be categorized into four areas. Something to do with their career. Something to do with their health. Something to do with the relationship. Something to do with their emotions or combination of those I, and and I look at the I look at all of this very holistically So what do you? What is the number? One thing people struggle with for their health exercising at exercising's number one finding the time that you, so you brought up a really really good point and number two making good food choices. It's amazing to me how people don't want to give things up. They say I can't. They need that Frappuccino or that. CARBS I would say probably is probably one of the number one things. What's the goal here? You're complaining about how you feel. You're complaining about your weight, so say okay, so you want to You want to feel better. You WANNA lose weight. Okay, so, what's what's something you could do and they might say boy. Maybe I could give up carbs all right. How are you going to do that? Like. What's one thing he did? What's going to happen when when you go to a party and You know, there's bread and Pasta and all of that, but then do you give them tips like what what I do is I make sure eat before I go. Fill myself up before he goes when I get there. I can make good choices, and it's why I made that one afternoon chocolate product, so I wouldn't touch the bread busk, which is amazing, so yes, so we ultimately get to that I kind of take them through the process of all right. Here's the goal. Here's the dream. Here's your vision now. What's standing in your way? The awareness is like the number one piece it's. It's in personal development I think. Think. Being aware is the biggest thing that's going to get you to where you want to be. So it starts with an awareness, and then I try to get them to come up with ways that they can do it so I have these icebreaker questions I actually liked them at the end. Because I think you'll be a little bit more relaxed, so here goes. What's the last thing you ate the last thing I was dinner last night and I had. A, Chicken, Burger. I had a cup of steamed Broccoli and I had a cup of roasted vegetables, and did you do put any salt butter O- on vegetables I put salt and garlic, and all of I tossed the after steam the Broccoli. I tossed it in garlic, and all of a little tablespoon of olive oil, and he deserved or any cocktail I of glass of wine red, wine, last night, K-. I'm still amazed that. At my last dancing birthday party I danced with you and your husband. You guys were on a cleanse. I was shit faced. You didn't have a drink and you had as much fun as I. Did you know? Because as I remember and I remember thinking I. Don't know if I'm GonNa like I felt I. Think I was a little tired to cleanse. You know what when you get around. People you you like that is a great way to increase your energy. Surround yourself with people you love and. Who We closed that party down did listen I like a good glass of wine see i. don't drink wine. Because one glass of wine leads me to and sometimes two and a half, and then all hell's going to break meaning like I'm GonNa? Open my cabinets and look for something junkie to eat and I don't have anything junkie, so I will eat healthy thing in my house and get sick I. Get that one can lead to to like definitely aware of that myself, so let's what the last workout you did Let's see the last workout I did. Is I went to the gym yesterday morning? I did a fifteen minute workout. And did chest and back, and then arms and shoulders I kinda tried to get in a lot. What's the last thing you googled I? Just finished my first course in college so I probably I had probably Google search something to do my lost bit of research something play therapy. It was it had to do with a child counseling. What is the last thing you said? said to someone on the phone I definitely spoke with my significant other last night. He was on his way home from a big meeting. He had in the city and I told him I loved him What's the last thing you bought pair of Adidas sneakers that I saw some guy in the airport in Italy have a few weeks ago. Their camouflage and Trying not to be so obvious, I took a picture of the sneakers and know long story short. The the Guy I had. We were in Lake Como. And we got on the plane, and the guy was sitting across from us, he and his wife, and the little baby, and I said I hope I. Don't know if you saw me taking a picture of your sneakers, but I love them. and. He said I don't think you remember me and I said no, he goes. You stopped me in Lake. Como taking a picture. My wife and baby and you said can I take a picture of you saw? Thought. Picture together. Funding I did I just bought. A. Love that is so funny and the last one is. What's your favorite splurge meal? You know a love. A good pasta meal I have to be honest and when I when I was in Italy. I was telling you this earlier. Had Pasta almost every day like I? Love Pasta has anyone ever said? Don't like Pasta. No, I don't like Pasta I mean, but there's not much you could put on that I won't like I. Will Try everything I'm so. Yeah. A Pasta would be my big splurge. Listen. I like a good piece of pizza once in a while till. I really can't just do one piece no me neither a half a PI. I'm really happy and I hate to tell you that either a glass of wine or sometimes a diet coke which is. I know. One one bad. Yeah right here I. don't eat pizza, so it's not an issue. But I do. Think and yes I could have a coke, but I go for the Diet Coke. I don't know why and I think it's more medicinal because I know. I'm GONNA be sick. And that will cut through all the stuff I. Don't know why but I don't drink diet. Soda. Listen we tell ourselves stories for us in that one more. Everyone things that anyone Oprah to Dr Oz to Dr. Phil, whoever else watched, has it all together? We're all working on stuff God well. That's what I think I think. That's one of the things. I love about this practice and I'd loved some of the questions you asked this. I'm I'm working on stuff, too. I I could I. Could you know I was definitely challenged when I started school I felt so unorganized and I take great pride in being productive. I really struggled the first week. I didn't how to get it all done I. Actually called the professor and I was like I. Don't know if I could do this, but it was a really. It was a great lesson for me because I looked at the entire some like semester's worth of worker, the five weeks worth of work. And I felt overwhelmed and I for that Short period of time allowed that to get the best of me. And I was like okay. Your solution oriented guy so I called the professor had a great talk, and she said Lemme. Break it down and I'm thinking I do this for a living and I realized that and I and I. I do this with people every day. Sometimes the task at hand whether it's something you want to fix in your career, your relationship emotionally something you want to fix with your health feels too big overwhelming, but when we break it down into segments, and you do bits at a time, it's so much more realistic, and then once you get into a new rhythm piece of cake piece of cake.

Logical Law of Attraction with Helen Racz

"Welcome, to the natural curiosity podcast. We are live every Tuesday evening at seven PM central time. You can catch us on facebook or on Youtube as well. Our show is called. Wisdom chats for the curious. Now! Enjoy the show. Hello there is. The baby boomer Babe and we have a wonderful thing to offer today, and it's an interview with Helen Race. This is delightful lady. We've just met her recently and had her on our show. The daily Reese knows on wisdom for the curious show, and we had such a good time, and now this is a way for her to get the information out about her new book. This lady can right I love her books. This is my favorite, of course, the logical law of attraction. I never thought about it being logical. This is good stuff. You got to have this book. Any anyway. I wanted to explain just a quick second about why. There's a camera in the back there now Helen's. Earns her screen. We could not get facebook to work. You know how technology can be some days, so she's live streaming hit on her phone. So anyway, all done with that I want to introduce my co host Marion Misao. Say Hello Marian Hello. Good Day tall you. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet Helen and learn all about her. Actually I've met PAL in many many years ago in Houston. wasn't body minded soul. It was another a group. It was like A. It was a bunch of buildings off a Westheimer and you were giving classes there remember. The weekly tapping and different classes. Yes, it was spectrum center center. That's where I met you. Because I knew I'd met you somewhere else for. Oh Gosh well. Halloway are just so delighted to have you here today, and to talk about your wonderful books. We love doing this so that you have this available for your friends and your followers, and all of the people who take classes from you as you have a ton of videos on your Youtube Channel, I am impressed very mightily. How do you like those from ten twelve years ago, the camera quality. Sticking with the newer ones so I didn't go back that far. Technology improves, so we know that sometimes it's just GonNa be a little fuzzier whatever, but we can correct a lot of that stuff, so bear with us if you're on facebook as a little blurry weaken. Where would you place it later? When we get the regular video up, so Helen let's start with you. And why? Why did you write the logical law of attraction? Okay, so first of all. I didn't write. It I wrote all the pro scripts to the chapters that Cindy childress. Let me see if I can zoom in there. I hired her as a ghostwriter. I see you. I had a student, and she said Look Helen I keep calling you minoan asking the same question. I know we all ask it in class gazillion times. You just need to write the books that we can look it up ourselves and I. You know Kinda sarcastically the descend. migos Jordan. And she sent me an email introduction. So I, said yes, and I contacted Cindy and I said what exactly is a ghost rider? What do you do at work? And Cindy's amazing so we. We plug through this book. Sheep. I said before you start. Please look at these videos and tell me if we're fit and she did. She said we could get this done in like three months while it took us a year. Oh! Let me. Tell you why because this. Is actually a huge consciousness shift. It's very cindy. I really slumped through it. Evolving the consciousnesses win so that it's easier for the reader. and Cindy has a high level of integrity and I mean she followed through. She could have dumped me numerous times. She did not I. Tell You check her out. If you have a book wanting to birth through you, she offers all kinds of different services. I needed. A writer I am not a writer I am the teacher. Dry and so she took. So, much of my teachings I mean I can't tell you. How much got cutoff from video? Cut from interviews cut from writing to put it together in the way that the reader can have an experienced engage. Would these mind changing consciousness evolving thoughts? Cindy as his jam, so what happened is she sent me the first prove now. This is after many months. Of interviews video talking clarifying you know sent me the first proof and it didn't have principal base father. Thought! It must be me, so I looked at all our interviews that she had kept copies of and no, it's not me. This is consciousness, and I said Cindy I. Love Your writing in the forward. Let's go back and do it differently. Were you share your experience learning this material? And God bless her. She shares with such ability and openness. We have created together. The most unusual book It gives you the teachers, teachings and the students. Interpretation and struggle to land it is that not beautiful. The to send you to fall I'm so glad you bring that up because. Don't we all interpret? Depending on our background are filters all the different things that have happened in our lives and the way we look at the world, so you can give the same information to ten people and you got ten different versions of what you said. Even writes in the book she goes accurate and successful books were to neuro-scientists. How hard could this be? Humor is incredible. It's a fun read the way. She's laid it out, so she took what I teach to some degree. Of course, you can always go deeper right and she put it in the easy to read format. I mean it's priceless and right now. I do have another friend helping me work on the workbook. Foreign Ariza logical law of attraction spiritual planner. In process of making that available that one's been tested myself. Many students many friends into now it's just the process of birth unit informat format of the people can get. And then some in this journey of writing logical law the traction. I was working with somebody and they said No. You need to make this information available to a larger audience so. Tell me where you're stuck, was bird? That resonates with me. Because you get sock you are, you need help. It's for the non-readers. There's pitchers a lot of whites. Murray small. and. Is. You know as a teacher. My Soul is only happy when I'm sharing information that makes the journey easier and faster forever's. On There's many different levels of delivery. That other people can have the best experience of themselves. You know that some that's a big step for a teacher to be able to offer it in the way that the audience needs to hear it or see it or experienced it for myself. It's gotta be video or audio. Books are fine, but my eyes are tend to make me sleepy when reading so I love the second book with a pictures and the and the open white space. Because it, it gives my mind away to breathe I think I I'm not really clear on exactly. Why, but I'm one of those types of people that I'd rather you talk to me I'd rather you show me an video It's just the way it is, but here's another thing and I. WanNa ask you. Do. You think you're going to be able to offer this in an audio. Yes, that is in the works Kobe nineteen Kinda glitch that one. I already have set at already paid the deposit sky. Dancer audiobooks in Colorado. Loved Bretton, his wife and I had tickets to fly out recording his studio and Denver closed down. This was in April right, so I've already paid the deposit. He already has the book. We are GONNA do it. It'll have three voices. We'll have the narrator that'll be Brat is. Wife is doing Cindy's voice and I'll do my own voice and. If definitely in the works again, also doing a workbook and then I will be figuring out how to open online program I'm I'm going to pay for that with experience by eight to learn and put up an online program. I have regular students every week. I've had them. Since will different ones since two thousand ten and a few of the same because he lens. We always learn the same way. That consistency is that Vedra of information we take so much repetition to change our consciousness to learn a new way of experiencing ourselves, so yes, Marian I am GonNa Learn. How do I offered on learning about? INSTAGRAM can start putting short clips. My brother bread by. Tell me where you're stuck. And he said are there videos to go with? It might wealth that's nets. New Okay. I'm I'm making a checklist here, okay? Oh Well Helen. I have a question. This is a true question that I just thought of. How does how did you get into the law of attraction? And how did you get into the tapping? How does the to Mash? In the same thing lady low, thank you. Thank you lady lays so. I have always had the entrepreneur heart, and of had many businesses that were to myself for over twenty. Six years, and then I had it had a women's gym and while I had the gym that Nison that's when I learned EFT popped browser, asserted, playing with a started working with members in the gym, and then strangers would show up and I would just tap with. Anybody thought they were GonNa join the gym. They didn't. They can get a tap and go. I started teaching at leisure learning. Unlimited, the adult education in Houston since his closed, but it was here for a long time. I loved it. We to and then many people said Hey, can you make this more affordable? So through Spectrum Center on Westheimer. Marian where you went? Rosa Riley such beautiful mentor to me. She hoped he set up a weekly tapping public events and I told everybody as long as room runs. Hole is covered through donation. All show up. And I never took a dollar that all the money went to room rental advertising. In. It was it was a public event. I never knew many who would show up and it. It went or over eight and a half years. Wow, isn't that time? I was also teaching spirtual classes. Life coaching classes, and what happens is all tapping. I started realizing the tax come through. Way Smarter than me, way non-judgmental, loving funny energy, and so I was like wow, will could I channel? Without the busy tapping. And in classes I would often teach things in somebody would say. Can you repeat that and I'd be like. I can't. Look the the audio and type it out, and so I knew that I was doing right personal work in prayer to allow wisdom to flow through me, which is what teachers right? And so then long story short for you. A lot of my clients come to me, and they would have the passion the heart to do their work and work for themselves contribute to our world, struggling powerfully and yet they were still stuck in loops of drama trauma. You got this just learn how to think. That cut infinite together, even coming. It's another seven habits. Are we affected? People hold Israel now not later and I had a few clients. Come to me and say look I tried. The book tried the Audio I don't get it. Can you teach it? Okay I'll teach one habit. They're seven a week for seven weeks, but I won't teach what Covey road because his work is a standalone. It's fabulous I always working. People read his book once a year for five years. There you go here's how principle based laws. Spiritual laws apply to all virtuality your study. At the end of seven weeks, my student said. And you teach it again and go slower. Moments. I realized it was like an epiphany right I realize. Oh, my Gosh, all those years I, bitch and Moan and complained and whined that. Where's the manual for life? It's actually knowing how to think. Teaching it ever since. The two thousand eighteen I started a whole series with my students There's three classes different classes a week that I teach, and it was all logical law of attraction. And then as I told you before, I, got introduced to cindy through email and I was like now i. do know what the gift is. What's present people? Oh. You. Were talking about channeling earlier you a brief overview of what channeling is. So chilling and it sounds all woo and mystical and I felt that way, too by the way and yet you know doctors, a surgeon who's in a in a really complicated surgery, he might channel intuitive now leaner wisdom in a moment that it's needed a mother with a child pat owner suddenly looks up and says I need to leash my animal or You know redirect their thoughts. Driving one day you suddenly get an urge to turn a different way and go different routes, and you don't know what you've avoided. Right so chain lane is about getting the Earth personality a little bit out of the way, so that something bigger and wiser and returnable than Earth personality cancer. So I noticed. That was happening all the time and I noticed it was happening in sessions and and then I thought. What can I do without tapping? So you could see 'em mysterious dot com, my videographer. Allan Anderson has loaded all our public channels, and so that's the same information same stream of intelligence again smarter than me more consistent than me more loving. The knee in Earth born personality. Teaching or you can access the taps. I have an audio library dated right now on Helen Race Dot Com and you can hear. It's very very directional educational. It invites you to expand your concept of life in having a good experience in how to show up. So channeling is just bigger broader knowledge than the earth. Personality can convey. them the emissary. which many emissary means messenger? That's beautiful, and any of us can do it right. Yes, anybody can, and anybody can tap the way I tap. Anybody can paint the way I paint being pipe piano like my son if Seoul prompts Put all the hours of practice that it takes composed. Darn. So when you were talking about tapping. Can you just show us the different points real briefly because some might not know what exactly tapping is and why we do it, which is interesting tapping you can just google eft. It was created in nineteen ninety. It's all over the world in more than forty languages, and it's based on using end points a major meridians in the body. It's not body tap. That's a whole different protocol, and they're. They are lightning fast, and yet you can do it in find endless information about if. For me, that was the opening into allowing. By Seoul south, my higher self, my connection to something bigger than me flow through support other people. Learn and EFT stands for emotional freedom. BREATHING TECHNIQUE BY JERRY CRAIG And he's been around for many many years. I have I guess it's original manual that he the allow people to download. Does he still do that? Yes, it's still free and if anybody is seeking. Ear like me, a self steadier student who work all alone and also from teachers his manual. The peace procedure is still on his website. It's amazing. It's all see. How utilize eft in a consistent manner. She make a lot of progress. I started. My forties I tapped excessively with his DVD's was livestream men and my eyesight improved both my eyes in my forties, and we're stigmatism. Quick grinding my teeth, and it was a lot happier, so then I was hooked. On that I would be, too. I was GONNA. Ask You. Who is the type of person or group that you feel most comfortable working with, and they feel that way about you. Anybody, seeking to have a better experience of themselves, and that are in the stage of personal growth where they take full responsibility. Right, so anybody just saying give me the information and I'll playa. That's my ideal client. And when I first started with tapping I was in a lower lower. Vibration does lower and higher doesn't mean veteran worse all journey, right? I was still in massive emotional healing. I was a red, hot mass hypersensitive codependence of the core and tapping cleared so much energy for me that it allowed me to live the life. I'm leaving today so the originally. I tracked people who were suffering. And now I've evolved more into. I don't really I do. Tap when people ask me in private session, I do teach still, but really my calling today is teaching people who are already successful in many ways how to expand their capacity for success by knowing how to fake. My knowing how to what he think. That's important because that's where all starts, as aren't thinking. They call it stinking, thinking for a reason, right? And if you are not thinking if you're brain dead, you no longer have an experience on this dementia. So. Visit makes sense that you would want to understand the formula the foundation, the logic of how you think have success you have, and then take it and apply it to your weak spots in your business. I love that Wonky Miss. Right him. You know you'd sex your US. What's up I said. I'm very experienced in warranty Oh. Well takes one the no one right. I understand you've written three different books and I'd like to show people here a yeah. These are what they actually look like. You can get them on Amazon the logical law of attraction. Tell me where you're stuck and this last book. Tell us a little bit more about that. Semi Amazing videographer Allen Anderson in. He records all channeling sessions. Will Not in class, but formal channeling, and then he will listen empl out snippets, any sends me a whole list snippets, and then I right Helen's perspective. And then I put a question. Why after one in this is like a newsletter? Even get every week at an email and after a year that I. The the east came through in meditation one day. They said three books Amazon March and I'm like. Okay. Gut Tell me where you're stuck I. Don't control logical law because Boba is the publisher on that and Cindy was writing it and there's editors you know. There's all kinds of other people involved. And I said well what could be the third book and I said what's all the newsletters and put them in a journal? So that people could instead of just coming to chain chainlink, they could sit in right and get into that. Space of a higher frequency, and so that's what it is interactive journal. and. And then you wind up. And when you engage with it, you will feel yourself. Won't Marianne like you said Your eyes get tired. You will get AIRY, high. On the energy and you start channelling your own with. Your working with the support of the. I Want Bat. I think anyone out there. Watching is going to say. Well. Is this for me and I'm GONNA. Tell you. Yes, make a path to Amazon get those books right and. If, you're not sure there's plenty of video and there's the newsletter from the emissaries weekly email. You know there's other ways to dabble. The interesting thing is. Dabbling leads to more dabbling to you commit to consistency in stamina. Great and yet a highly recommend you know these are this way? Bean works for me and for my clients in my students very task oriented results-oriented right. And then depending on where you are your journey, it may not be a fit now. That's fine knowing about it and I think both of you for bringing this out to a larger audience. Knowing about it, it makes it later right. We're not all here for the same awakening, and so those of you who will be of service to? You'll know you'll keep. It'll keep running across through different or it'll niggle your mind until you show up and engage. I like that I. Do let's talk a little bit more about your. You said it twice now. And I heard it, and it really resonated with me. Consistency. Okay so. Just like exercise or Dyin or you know a a study habits or your work habits your family if you're. Willy Nilly will today I'll do it tomorrow. I won't hurt. I'll take my pill today. Maybe tomorrow I'll take it in the evening. That doesn't work. It doesn't work for US humans. We need to have this this consistency. How do we get there Helen? Albus? No it had. Is created the exact same way. Everything that humans create. Clarity. Consistency Elif and action. And so I've broken it down into two different ways. Tell me where you're stuck. Gives you four questions to work with. the what why how and how successful you aligned to clarity which supports consistency, but if you haven't hit the level of clarity where you engage emotionally, and you know what success will look like chances are. You won't follow through now again. You're already doing this in every success. You've hit success by your definition, not anybody else's but every success. You've ever had this formulas. They're learning how to recognize it in then purposely use it is what I teach, and then the logical attraction goes deeper goes into a few more spiritual laws of why it is hard to be consistent. So. I teach in the medical community if you really want something that you don't have. YOU WOULD WANNA be consistently engaged with all the different aspects of you and I teach. There's the mental body emotional body spiritual body. Energetic body KARMIC body go ICK ATI and physical body now if you don't have all seven of those on the same page, the going Kinda slip. Who does slow, yes. How in do I know you teach phys teachings back when we could and you'll be doing that again soon. As this virus thing is over. Are you planning to do anything online for those who don't live in the Houston area? Yes. I will be soon in about a month Amena Different Emma student right now, but different teaching. Hello. Helena Bowen with her speakeasy program, and then I've been as Saina pay to learn from experience by Marissa.

I have tons of freebies on my my website and yet people don't have that consistency that through, so she's found a way with a platform how to game Afyon get people more engaged, and so the completion rate goes like three percents, sixty or seventy percent. All that's. All invest my time energy efforts. And money to get that setup so that people can be blessed through it when they're ready to come in.

Tue. 4/7 - A DEEP Dive into Kristin Cavallari's Bahamas Quarantine w Guest Claire Downs

"Hello and welcome to the Philippines ride home for Tuesday April seventh twenty twenty. I'm your host. Kate raft returning a little something different on the show today. I'm mixing it up. A mixing live because you know life is weird and this is a time to try new things right. You're on your cars right now anyway. So I'm allowed to play with the ride home format. I think. Today you're about to hear a special interview. I did with journalist and freelance writer clear downs. She had a thread go. Viral yesterday. About Kristen Cavalieri and her husband Jay Cutler vacationing in the Bahamas and kind of being stuck in quarantine there and it was so well researched so good so I had claire. Come on the show. She's a friend of mine and we're just like we did a deep dive on Kristen and Jay. And it's it's a real tree. It's a hoot. It's fun they're gonNA love it so yeah. Stick around for an amazing interview with Claire Downs. It's a blast. All right. I'll be back tomorrow with a normal show the normal average show but for today. Enjoy this treat. It's a fun special. Treat so yeah enjoy. Hello and welcome to the show one of my dear friends. I've named dropped her so many times. So she's basically celeb- at this point in the CELEB- news ride home extended universe. She's a writer. She's a funny comedian. She is my real life friend but she's also a freelancer who's written for L. L. A. Bustle you know where you love her. She's Claire Downs. Welcome to Celeb- news right home with you so much for being our Guinea pig. I interview here Claire. Now thank you. I am honored to be Here I feel like we should get cozy alert. Yeah that's dropping Kirk Anyway. Kills does easy cozy So clear your famous now because you did this viral thread about Christine Cavalry and Jay Cutler being stranded in the Bahamas for their like weird month long quarantine like we have to. We have to have you on the show because we have to dig into this like we have a celebrity in our midst. And it's it's it's a moment like this tweet is going crazy okay. So if you're just waking up on planet earth and you missed this somehow clear tweeted Chimera tweeted today. Wait you just tweeted this today right. Yeah this was at Lake. I'm in La so this was at a forty one is when I dropped the thread but I did start working on it around seven when I woke up in my naked while my husband was walking our dog I started the research and the threat in the same. And that's how it goes. That's the new way online journalism. Okay so the first post in the thread. Is this great vacation. Picture of Kristin Cavallari Cavalieri cavalry not sure unclear unclear. I feel like it's Cavalieri. Because her show is called very cavalieri and that would that would rhyme better okay we should also say Jay Cutler is a former big time. Nfl Player. Yeah you and I are not really football players but I always forget that like he's probably more famous than her more famous in potentially. I don't know maybe more wealthy I don't in my mind. She's The star but I realized that my cultural viewpoint is warped because of the hills and Laguna Beach. Okay so so Clara tweeted this this morning. She wrote Kristen carrying Larry and Jay Cutler have been stuck in the Bahamas with her hairstylist. For twenty two days. And it's this really long thread. Basically documenting how they've been stuck in the Bahamas before we get into it. We should say they're back in Nashville right like as of today as of today The hairstylist who actually I was corrected as a hair colorist Justin Anderson He tweeted Eric. Instagram story saying we are finally home. We finally figured out a way to get home. And that's natural that like an hour ago so it'd be like eight o'clock national time nine a cloudy National Times. It's so crazy that you like exposed to this and then they were immediately came home. Do you think you did that. I don't want to take credit for that because maybe they have chartered a plane. Like as a person who doesn't really charter a ton of private planes I'm not really sure when they had to start organizing. I feel like my son my knowledge of the Kardashians. You can just get one at anytime like in a snap but as of late last night they were still at like posting workout videos and stuff so they wouldn't they supposed to like tomorrow's the big day like a time games connoisseurs of them. Packing like yeah. I don't know a missed opportunity for I've content. I'm going to go ahead and say clear. Allegedly inspired them to come home today. I'm going to say one thing right now. This is exclusive to this podcast on my goop. Yeah so I was forwarded. Some press by Justin Alexander's People. That were released this afternoon. In joins Alexander is the hairstylists hair-color. Sorry Justin Anderson. I'm sorry Justin Anderson. Okay the hair the hair color. I was forwarded some pressure releases of Justin Anderson's. Pr People saying that. He is available for interviews this afternoon to talk about his. Co. Vid Respond Only God. Are you going to interview? Well Kinda WanNa Kill my God you really. Should you gotTA interview? We need to follow up. We need a follow up. You got any burn that bridge. Oh my God. Wow okay so everybody. That was a scoop. He's looking for press off of this. That's crazy that's wild. I don't really blame the hair guy. Because he's got work right like he the Stencil. They flew him out there so that he could style her while on vacation like. Isn't that kind of the VIBE. Like she probably would want to pay like some Glam to come with her if she's GonNa do a lot of instagram content on vacation. Well kind of I mean. So she refers to him and his fiancee scoot as her children's gunk -als which is right. Gay Uncles are of a term. I probably wouldn't use personally but that is from a- caption of hers So they're close to the family. They are sometimes featured in very capillary As characters asner actress. I still think that they they would have flown them out. At least if not paid for their services while on vacation or that the one guy yes. It's very the favorite. It's kind of like the favorite like yeah. It's like I think when you're famously your stuff is also your friends. But then it's like they have to be your friends because they're like getting money from you right but you can't get too close and they can't f. up your trip to the Bahama no okay. Let's go through the thread. So this thread is. It's starts on March twelfth which I remember that weekend vividly. It was like the weekend I believe. March twelfth was the day Shit. Started TO GO DOWN RIGHT. It was like that was the day of the NBA thing and like we found out. Tom Hanks Scott it and like so. You're threat also starts on March twelve. She's in New York that morning. She she posts on instagram woke up in NYC with like a hot fashion selfie or not selfie but picture. Yeah so she probably flew from New York to national got it and then we see them on March fifteenth which is quite a few days later later after like New York had been in a state of emergency. I think the president announced a state of emergency on the thirteenth. Like yeah that he's TNT. Was the big day for many people win like I was like home finally from a business trip right? I was freaking out and felt like I had done something wrong personally by not being home already. Yeah but I was on a work trip and then that was also the day that The Bahamas announced their first confirmed case and then they had jim so this is the day also that they decide to go to the Bahamas. Yes on that which they call spring break. I think it is like their kids are off school for spring break so they had planned this trip as kids. Spring break I'm guessing. Yes because Jay Cutler is there Justin Anderson is there. Scoot is their their three children. Are there I don't Wanna see their kids names. 'cause I'M GONNA mess him up because it's like Saxon Clayton but I just don't know only too but Justin posted the same photo. He kind of was immediately defensive about it. He put go to work. People judge you socialistic. People judge just wash your hands. Keep your space and use this time to be positive and take care of your loved ones with the Emoji of a palm tree and a heart and then photo him on the beach. That's why he's there for work because he's kind of being like he's kind of implying like I'm on a work trip like don't bother me right. Yeah sure I mean. That's my guess is that he sees this as more of a work thing. It's possible they were there to take pictures for her instagram or for her fashion line. Which is called Uncommon James It's possible that that was there but they. I didn't see any photographer's with the maybe there were photographers. Maybe that person took you know. I do have said think the this was around the time where a lot of people were like defensively on spring break and being like. We're just washing our hands like it's fine like this was still when people were being super not taking it seriously. This is P. Click evangeline Lilly gymnastics camp era. Oh my God never forget. This is also the era that I would say like. You probably have two more days and then you're like okay. We made a mistake. I flight home right before you're like actually being like your skoll flying the laws. Yeah but they take it way farther than today's She we skip ahead a little bit. Yeah let's skip ahead a little bit They you know Justin Anderson says that their stock there have no other choice to leave in some of the comments. He they also say it's like an empty island which it's not his there are like workers working there. there's people that live there. It's pretty like telling that they think it's like they think since there's no other vacationers there that it's not like they don't realize like these businesses. Hump to run by people working at that when like people probably live on this island lake in order to do that like it's just yes yeah So then like they're saying they're stuck but but there's a lot of evidence that they were still flights running out of the Bahamas both commercial and private Amanda. The embassy is like basically saying like hey all Americans who are abroad. We urge you to come back unless you are essential like people who are serving in the military are people who are abroad teaching. You can stay if you already live somewhere else but raised trip this was like when Caroline Calloway came back from Berlin for the true heads. A around the twenty. The Heyman government closed all the ports release the incoming travel occur and the embassy says okay. Fear abroad basically. You're going to stay there indefinitely if you haven't made plans like we're not going to help you get off the island. That's the same day. They posted a workout video called keeping tight of them doing squats in Ghana on a mad there clearly like they've rented some. I'm G- do you think. They rented a house on like a resort or something like it looks like a villa or like a house that they rented so. I didn't have this info fully up to be able to share earlier in the day because I felt like it would be just not enough research but being given a lot of Info from Bahamians who have it on record their photos that they're the Albany resort. Pay which is the most expensive resort In the capital of the Bahamas. It's not an empty island and it's a combo of timeshares condos and rent an like resort stays so. I can't say for sure if they own the property. Or if it's timeshare or they're just book you know a room so I can't say but yeah that's where they are. It's a resort okay. And it's the nicest resort in the capital of the Bahamas and if you look at a picture of it really is like a resort. It's not like homes like I kind of thought. Maybe they were at an Airbnb or they owned a house there. But it's like apartment style hotel Got It got it. Yeah that makes sense. Okay let's continue on the chronology of them. Still being the Hampton right not Hamptons Bahamas the south. I mean listen. The HAMPTONS is a state of mind. It's not a geographical place okay. So they're still there. They're doing workout videos. Now it's The twenty eighth of March. So they've been there almost two weeks and all the GOSSIP COLUMN START. Picking this up and a source is quoted in a few of them saying that the capillary. Cutler's will be home early next week. Which would have been last Monday or Tuesday so all week ago? So they did not know. This was around the same time. They posted like a peach but selfie and the peach but selfie like a picture of a Kristen Cavalieri holding onto is that her husband's waist now that the hair the hair color is sways and an her like little dog bikini. I mean wasn't just got a great body good for her. She gets Scott Body So around this time is wins like people in the comments are really getting upset and Anderson says that home meaning the. Us like isn't safe compared to the Bahamas which is really not I'll say this year Lake Island. Nations are incredibly fragile. They don't have unlimited hope. Hospital rooms A lot of cases were confirmed. Around that time there were already a few deaths and you know the hospitals should really be for the Bahamians that live and work I or people who live there. Full year rounded with their ex PATS Whereas this is like it's not really for vacationers to take ventilator. Take a bed so I'm being harsher here in the emptying on the thread. Bring the harsh. Yeah Hey where? We can be harsh on celebrities. Ride home So around like the seventeenth date. There there is the fear of missing out of like the way. We're all quarantined. So she posted like a thing of her cookbook being like. We only comfort food during this time. It's like you're not eating comfort food. You're eating like I'm chips in Guam and like the hairdresser said he was missing his bed and netflixing chill and like you could have had that we could have come home like they asked you to come home. I just think it's so funny because it's like so much of just like corona virus times are like different social media trends. It's like one international siblings day that everyone has to chime in on or whatever like you know when you go online and it suddenly like the day everyone's posting pictures of your siblings and your like. Do I have to do this too? And it's like no I don't want to but like that's kind of how they felt. They were like well. We were on vacation like we can't really contribute to this new social media trend like what can we posed against. We'll try our best. They could've like they could have said we're coming back and we're donating all the money we would've used on vacation to corona relief or to the Bahamians writer. She owns a fashion company and she didn't know like jar make masks eventually At this point in my thread just this out here. I realized that she's an Anti Baxter. Yet this is a real twist this got me. So she's an anti vaccine. I think I knew this but but immediately filed away into the dark part of my brain that I don't want to venture into so she's an anti vaccine are I found this out because I didn't know this either. But her hairstylist. Someone commented is quarantine. GonNa Change. Kristen's mind about vaccinations and he wrote back. I don't really care. T H that's her business. So he likes confirmed it that she is then. I went back and she actually went on Fox. News in two thousand fourteen to defend Not Vaccinating her son. Camden so she. I haven't really seen an updated article so as far as we know so I might be wrong but yeah she's anti vector. Yes wasn't don't ask me if you're listening to this near an vaccine I don't WanNa hear it. Don't leave me a bad review and say Gates. Pates me because I don't I don't hate. You're just think you're wrong. Okay continue okay so this is where I just wrap it up. You know. Yesterday was day twenty one. Today's Day twenty two. They were posting workout videos again. Different ones and then Jay Cutler posted a three days ago he said he was on day. Twenty eight which would mean for him. Today was day thirty one and I don't know if that's him being funny but I'll also say the the caption on it is so. He is sitting in the water shirtless with swim trunks on in he says not needed as pissing mission. He's pissing notion which is like a reference to arch toilet paper shortage that we're experiencing and they're not experiencing so he's clearly aware of all the things we're going through. It's this guy. This bronze to former athlete is holding an empty cocktail cups and his pissing on all of us. He's pissing on our faces with this picture. The last thing I'll say is like I. There's one of the cash which I can't find it right now but that Justin Anderson posted of one of his photos. It's like we're not sure of the the world we're coming back to the United States. That were coming back to and I just wanted to be like you know. Ignorance is not bliss no like it kind of is like upsetting. Because it's like will I've been along for the whole right here. I mean I haven't great like I'm healthy. I don't have any loved ones. That are ill but like how can you post? It's not one photo. They posted lack collectively twenty photos. Plus stories being like look at how fabulous our lives are. Yeah and like you don't have to post. Here's the thing it's like these people and I've talked about this a little bit in the episode. Were I got into the Arielle Sharona stuff? It's like actually don't really care. What celebrities do I don't even care? They're irresponsible it's if you're gonNA do something good tone deaf or like against CDC guidelines or whatever like just don't tell us about it like be embarrassed enough to keep it off the grid like it's it's wild that this is like so well documented. Like if I was as rich as Kristen Cavalieri and Jay Cutler I would just be on my vacation and I'd be like well let's turn the phones off or like take my change positive for me. I can't be trusted like no self awareness. And honestly they don't care and and she. She is promoting her products through all of this which is like the real reason why she's posting is because she makes money from her post slake her posts directly feed income. She doesn't want everyone else's losing their jobs but she can't be bothered to like take a week off of promoting her cookbook or whatever or her. You know jewelry line. Yeah and a lot of people like commented like you know to me You know what's so wrong about that? Like she's social distancing. They've all been together the whole time in its flake while they said non essential travel on the twelfth and then she got on a plane did international non essential travel then they said the CDC and United Nations as well as at the US embassy and the Bahamian Embassy. Said if you are not like if you're on vacation go home and she ignored that and so I think she ignored that because she knew what's waiting for her is two weeks in full quarantine in the United States where you can't leave and she might have to like face like a harsher like customs process coming back in which you know that's fair You know run like back. Everyone already went through that the people who were unfortunately already on cruises or already faced with these issues had to suffer through that already and she kind of like did it knowingly after I know you could have cancelled a trip like she knew enough to cancel the trip. It's not like they left before it got serious like they left after it got serious. Yeah and like I said I was on a business trip and I got back. The morning of the fifteenth from San Francisco. I live in La. It's a forty minute flight. I thought I was going to vomit coming when all this was going down like do. I have to go on this trip and like my boss was Kinda like well. We'll see we'll see in. You know I went on it and I just thought I was the dumbest person in the world and I felt so guilty and this is like going on a forty minute flight to San Francisco right in this and damning taking multiple planes. Take to a different country where they could unknowingly be infecting the people there. The you know what I mean like. I think it's like it's also like you've got to consider like your like hotel room as being cleaned by workers like your towels are being you know washed by workers. There's like people working that you're sensibly putting in danger like when you're on vacation. I don't know it's just like just like there's a lot of thought going into it. How your kids are? I mean I know. Kids are less susceptible to instantly. Your kids are touching surfaces that you can't control and then touching their faces and mouths and then touching you so like there. The kids are touching like the railing. And then it's just slightly different than a controlled environment like your neighborhood or like your drive. Yeah you know who is more destructive to the Bahamas Kristen? Cavalier Billy McFarland. Well lead the documentarian of one of the fire. Festivals has re tweeted this tweet and commented on it so I feel endorse using any good reactions like any like any like Haider papers or anything coming at you so the most common thing is. How do you have this much time on your hand? Hey Sis why'd you spend this time which is like I'm unemployed? Bids One of six million people out of work. This is what you're gonNA get only sorry and eat a lot of us. Have a Lotta time on our hands right now with free time? I'm a nightmare. Yeah no you're right. You're my nightmare. Drives Lincoln Daydream. And when I say nightmare I mean literally inject this straight into my veins. I love this thread so much. You're such a like you are such a good journalist and like so funny and like it is just so well put together if you're listening to this and you haven't read the thread yet. I'm linking it in the show notes. It's really really good. Is there anything that you like like WanNa snark on that? You didn't like get a chance to talk about yet with with with these people. I feel like we've talked a lot of smack today but I don't really care I'm proud of it all right. Here's a couple of things. I didn't say the thread because again I was like were I kind of knew that this would go viral like. I don't want to toot my own horn but I was literally naked in my bed. I refused coffee because I knew my husband. He's like do you want coffee and busy when it's like when the moment strikes you it's like you're it's like you're writing a symphony. I felt that way. I felt that way when I did my thread about celebrity homes during the imagine video. I think that sometimes you hit a celebrity like story. But just you're like you're like this is my duty. This is my God given duty. I have to let the people know. It's how I feel every time I think about Zach braff and Florence pugh and like I have to let the people know exactly doesn't go viral. It's still my duty. Not If not if not if not me who the someone else is. GonNa do it. So here's some snarky things. So I felt like they've really spiraled in the last week like there's a video of her. It might still be up from a story of her of Kristen drunk in a bikini going in a market like a small grocery store with the caption like only one family allowed L. O. L. And she's like drunk with his justice swimsuit. Yeah like I know it's the Bahamas. I'm not trying to shame but like I don't have that kind of body confidence even if I'm drunk in a supermarket during pandemic like being hot as a drug it lets you. Can you drive. Things can't being hot as a drug being hot as a drug I guess. They decided to walk to the supermarket. although they do have golf carts with their names like pasted on them in like a piece of paper but so they tried to walk with one of the kids and the kids got tired so anderson posted seeing of the kid and his His fiancee sitting on the side of the road with the caption. No Not Uber's here. Lol yet no UBERS here L. L. Shorty needed a breather. Yeah no UBERS HERE. Wonder why you should think about why. There's no ubers right now. Like pets yeah like you should consider wise. There's no why there's no it's because you're in this place during a global. Pandemic you wear your in your. Does your like in the supermarket. Basically in a in a bikini touching. You're exposing your whole body didn't like it I mean I don't leave the house with like every instrument covered up. Meanwhile you know one saying that. But meanwhile Kristen Cavaliers Grocery shopping into Bikini. She doesn't realize like we all have to wear masks now. We often mask now. Gloves like like put a sweater and like put some hair bands over. It might turn it into a mask. Yeah the last thing. I'll say this is a lot of people who are more into the Cutler World. A universe Let me know that. He is a type one diabetic. So he's he's immuno-compromised. Yes and how much insulin did they bring with them? What are they gonNA do if they don't have it like that was like a big question in the threat? I mean they're home now but lake. I thought that was like a little lake interesting. The hospitals are kind of like they're on Cova duty. You shouldn't really be utilizing medical services unless you absolutely have doing running. Needing Insulin is preventable. If possible thing. But the longer you stay somewhere like replenish the supply. So I didn't really get it though they're rich but I did not know he was diabetic. That's I said that adds a level of heavy to this story that I'm like I was not prepared for. Ooh That's heavy. That's dark. That could have gone dark. Luckily they're back in their safe and hopefully they're not going to leave their giant Nashville Mansion. That I've definitely read multiple articles about because once again I always get sent celebrity real estate. Click bake a one click base that I'm always getting sent on all my algorithms. They know the Algorithm knows. They know all cliqueish. Claire Is there anything that you want to plug promote while I have you here? Everyone should obviously follow clear on twitter. She's at Clare see downs. The threat is in the show notes. I'll click that link just read it. Eat It up through. Your nose. Snorted baby but Claire. Ya anything else that that you can guide oath. Of course. You're I'll just do it for you. I'm here I'm here. I'm here publicist. Now everyone checkout newsletter. I've promoted it on the show. Multiple Times called going downs.

R.L. Stine's The Best Friend (w/ Daniel Montgomery and Matthew Scott Montgomery)

"Sometimes friendship can be murder this week on the PODCASTS are l Stein's best welcome to team creeps. The PODCAST that discusses trashy teen horror. I'm one of your host Lindsay. Kate die and I'm another one of your hosts Kelly nugent and we have a couple of very special guests. Today they're actors they're writers. They are host of the goosebumps podcast. Welcome to dead cast. It is Matthew Scott Montgomery and Daniel. Montgomery we're here so so happy to be here. I have a feeling we're going to be best friends to to the end that end. That is very upsetting. What enhance personal? Truly the the interns. I didn't see it coming. I does it your first time reading. I have not read this one. Okay think I did but as a teenager and didn't remember it well all because wow wow wild ride yes was like a an hour and a half long panic attack time. There's a lot going on. I could not handle the gas lighting. The gas lighting was volume of credible gaslight gas leading the reader. Honestly because I am I never got honey story. We never got no. That was infuriating. Also also like you have crimes to answer for truly. We don't know if honey even ever lived next door she we don't know we'd she didn't even say when she went in the house in the end if there was in fact venture nowhere table so we know there were and table take. That's it when this book came out fans were so upset about it and like fired up about the ending of this book that he wrote a sequel equal to it. The best friend too and when the best to came out there was a sticker on the front of it said that the audience demanded it. Here it is or something like that the best friend. Yeah well I demand I do too. That's not a lie. Here's the thing and that is the best friend too good. It's no that's what happens to so this is that they own the media and service isn't necessarily a good thing. I think I saw US online. Where fans could recommend what they thought should happen no similar to the backlash of fatal attraction when that movie came out if you are you familiar with the the the drama okay? I mean really quickly but like You know originally if you remember that movie. It's Glenn Close who stalks Michael Douglas's family that she's a villain is for even though he's cheating on his wife and is is is being the worst guy ever but she gets blamed for all of it and movie. Well yes in when we test audiences. I think he's the late eighty S. I think it was. Maybe we should look it up. You should look it up. I think audiences for test screenings didn't think that Glenn Close got punished enough. It's right so they had to reshoot the ending ending where she comes back alive if you remember in the bathtub in the bathtub and he shoots her staff's or whatever yes audiences at the time think thought the woman needed to be punished. More that they trash that's sadly offing and not surprised at all so anyway. It's just like the best friend honey punished and they wanted it in the best friend. So honey is like oh is back well eighty seven hundred. Eighty seven okay. Okay yeah what happens I mean. Are we talking about ready. We haven't talked with. Let's let's we did reach like. Do you want to know the answer to this and then we can. Why don't we talk about the Okay okay do you think it'll be more it'll be more powerful. Yeah and and we'll go. God Okay I would like to say I am so excited to have you guys on the podcast because never before have we been in with our own people really know are also. It's a thing to write. Where like I love all of our guests I love I love above? Everyone brings a different flavor but like a lot of times. You have to be like okay something like this is the kind of book data like explain like what these books are like but like you know our boy rl. Oh yeah we know better than we do. I think because you only are l.. That's right that's correct anything about any like history. I don't know anything about the history of any single one of these well when you read solely are Stein and what our podcast does is we were.

If I'm wrong and I was listening please and the book is literally literally just phone calls between friends on a crazy Friday night and it's like the straightest thing you've ever read in your life at all it's like one hundred twenty pages of just dumb gags about like being on the phone. He's garbage I love it. It's so stupid I love that I also since you were saying the straightest just thing ever I wanted to talk about the The gay panic in this book. Tell me more. So did you feel honey is in love with with yeah. I felt perhaps incorrectly. Maybe this was not his intent. I highly doubt it was but it could read it a little bit to me as like look this girl. She can be like obsessed with you and like if a garage a crush on you. She's GonNa Kill Your boyfriend and I think you did it. I don't think he he meant to do that at all. No I read that a little bit. You can't help. But but imagine a world in which that was part of the plot yeah rooming but he's very he his zero queer energy in the stuff that he right absolutely not. Unfortunately I can't I can't imagine him intentionally putting Nuno they're all like it's so maybe not so much panic panic but but like I'm gay murder murder know how to phrase it but oh yeah what you mean lesbian stocker stereotype or something. Yes you single white females reference but but never seen single all. I have not ever used as a ref. I haven't used Swim Fan Swim Fan. which is a David yes? Single Swim Fan.

I was walking you out because I can't remember any details but it was burned into my brain. The idea of fast under eight to serve Sir t shirt being hidden from view and I was like why the detail is that a secret for us is we need to know under t-shirt makes me sir ill. I've got to do it. Yeah we don't see it investments. No one knew Mike dirty little secret. All I have are big denim vests that will have to wear under a suit by a fad undershirt.

A few tracks like metal title and shattering glass make sound effects. Whatever while I was listening to it last night and in this first chapter how emotional the first job emotional roller coaster? That we go through with Becca is that she's making out with her current boyfriend Eric who she can't stand and she's going to break up with him. She can't stop thinking about her ex boyfriend. Bill then she breaks up with Eric and Eric Is. It's been real and he's cool with it and then she's angry because he's not more upset. That's just fine. I'm going to go. Rebels place crashes in crashes or I six minutes of the audiobook and then the second chapter just start with like good good thing. You're you didn't die in that car accident I know she's like knitting a sweater. And we never referenced the Act and that is a classics also passing. Why they I can tell you? I know we're jumping ahead but like my favorite fake out in this whole book. Which really really tickles me is is honey saying trying to remember? Remember trying to remind Beca of that.

Seventeen year old girl with a banging body who has been coma since she was thirteen so her minus thirteen oh it's very good good Gregg twenty three year old in fact that tracks a little bit because it they constantly reference Bekker's endless breakdowns in this book yet mysterious ones from before we've joined them in in the narrative really yes they talk about how she took the time when she broke up with Bill Maher at one point to calm down.

They're nice her her mom by one hundred. They've so hard she's had it real rough 'cause how does it honey say her her mom died and then her dad has never around around But maybe she killed him maybe she who's to say we do find out though the honeys real and did know Becca that was shocking reveals right at the top all. She remembers she used to. I think violent Trish remember her as well as the second FAC- here in the class photo there like burst into tears all the time. Yeah and war-scarred honey like yeah honey. Has this memory of the day she was leaving and Jean Becker were crying and hugging each other. In a man on the street walked by saw the picture of memories are so specific yes or like that dead bird or something that they found a nurse or a life or whatever it was my favorite was when she was like. And then you hit up in your attic and Becca A.. So resigned that she just goes. I don't have an addict. He's like ignores her back. I just let's get away with it because she's been so browbeaten. Yeah she's so tired and don't have an attic it. It is one of those things where like I am shocked. That Becca didn't break sooner because like I think I don't know I've been I've definitely been there where someone is just gas lighting. You like so much and you finally just like start screaming I remember. I think we're told us on the show where I in my girl Scout Troupe when I was I think second grade our girl scout troop leader? I had a cough or something and so she just kept being like well Kellyanne. Yeah strep throat. Kellyanne strep throat Kelly. I wouldn't stop wouldn't just like oh well you know because Kelly strep throat and then finally I like I was like the weird quiet. Could that like didn't really have very many friends. So I just kept taking it in like not saying anything and I should let me sit alone at a table and keeping Kelly though says she can't hang out with the other and then I like was like drawing or something and threw it on my stuff and I was like picture like like honeybee like screaming. Why would you ever pretend that you know her if it if she came to school or I would a hundred percent fake just if she comes into your bedroom yeah I'm GonNa read where she enters because it is fully insane before backup could finish her sentence? The bedroom door was full lung open. Becca dropped her knitting lila sat upstream. Trish leapt to her feet. All through them stared in surprise as a girl with a main long auburn hair. Excitedly swept into the room. She shouted her is starting from girl to girl. Finally landing on Becca. The girl cried stepping over Lila. She bent down through her arms around BECO with those giant giant hands yes and wrapped up in a tight hug. I'm so happy to see you. She squealed her mouth open wide. Bewilderment Becka struggled wriggled unsuccessfully to free herself from the Girls Hug. I can't believe it the girl cried. Just can't believe it if you it's really you know we couldn't love it more. I love why does she. What is continue? She just keeps screaming about how she can't believe that cow violent Trish Acts like they aren't even there beyond like the one two three of seeing them in that moment where she goes. Oh there's Becca no acknowledge never and they will ask direct questions that she he does not answer cancer. She acts like there was some sort of natural silence in the room for a second and then just continues talking to Becca if somebody did that. She's like Oh. My God wouldn't wasn't me coincidence. We're going to be best friends again just like this remembering that. I wouldn't go okay. I'm just going to play along until I can figure it out. But here's insanity. Here's the problem and and I like and I used to be the type of person that was like I I would have stopped that immediately but if someone doesn't think with enough confidence sometimes you're just it's like okay like you're giving example. There's another story I really started to have to derail things. Oh this is totally off topic Kelly. The thing that you're about to say it's related needed to what we're talking about off topic doing well because you're strep throat so like so i. I was just showing the old car that I used to have like. Um the door sometimes wouldn't lock when I press the key fob and and so sometimes it just wouldn't close away but the alarm stewart so I had parked right outside my house and I was inside my living room and Lindsey. You've been my house. I have a balcony. That looks over the Driveway and I parked right outside there and I start hearing an alarm go off. It's very loud and very close so I got signed and there's a woman and sitting in my car and I was like Whoa wait like get the fuck out of my car. And she looks at me and she's like get out of my home and so she does and she's like this is my car and I was like an in my head. I'm like I guess maybe I was like no wait shit. No that's my fucking car. No get on my fucking car. She's like you WanNa see the keys and I was like okay. Okay so she gets out like a king like a million sober key. You showed me this. You're traumatizing me. was telling you about the I think like three were I would say I got my new car in two thousand sixteen so it was like two thousand fifteen. Yeah and she's like shaking the keys and I literally looked to see if there were car keys on there because I was like maybe maybe it is a car is her car. Har- like maybe I've been wrong this whole time. I was like okay because she was so confident she was like. Yeah that's my. It's my car shaking the keys at me. I was like oh no but no go the fuck away. Get away from my fucking car. And she's like well fine and then she gets herself and leaves talk. Yeah she's just sitting in there. Yeah I can't believe I've known you as long as I have and I have not heard this story but it's upsetting the fight if I didn't remember it. No I think I might have told it with a guest host but I listened to those while my God. I'm wow I can't believe forgotten it's like it's if someone is just like so confident though but for many seconds I was like okay. Okay like I would forgive Becca if it I. She's just like okay. I'll figure it out. But then she keeps saying memories of them being. It's probably immediately as like no my best friend in fourth grade was Dina Martindale or whatever. But I'm defending backer. But like and I think it's because you know you have this person who so clearly emotion on attach these memories. I think Becca felt guilty is like wow these really meant something to the scarlet. Meant so much turn. She recently lost her dad or mom. Or whatever you know you add that into the mix of it and it's like she is so intense about these memories memories like so upset about these memories that is like Oh my God. I don't remember this at all. I feel terrible. There's some guilt involves so much to her. Also like Every time she like tests the water and has like no honey shit. Yeah she's probably like Shit. If I like do something if I like Taylor. That never happened. She's going to like scream at me like she already gets so crazy about like Lila unlike Trish and those people like I would scared. Yes it okay I will grant you. Maybe that first night. Here's my reasoning. That I will gift to Becca. Okay eh a crazy person in my house. Yeah I need to placate them until they are gone and I am safe right. At which point I will sit. My mother are in father down and say here's what happened tonight. And then I went next door and she's not there the house it's empty. We need to be on the lookout for girl she. She said all these memories that didn't take place like meat. Trish and Lila remembered her but we were not friends with her mom. So please don't let this person and we all need to be on the lookout. I'll make sense it's other villains to are the friends who like Sauve this happen and then later when she's like she's coming on strong they're like now villa break every blonde everybody saying like. I don't know you seem in crazy right. Now that honey's upsetting you so much issue not telling any of these stories to people. These memories are so stephen even though when she goes over to bill's house and he says like maybe are we being too hard on her end. Cute bill think. That's not something you say. How bill the fifth year seniors on him? It wasn't a zeal. Talented the poll and his carpet house dirty greasy take a nail character in our front of him pushing his Berto into a whole. I wanted to fucking throwing US Navy. Corduroy cow I was like this. This is truly a hell scape that he. He's subjecting her to his toe going carpet. I couldn't and she wants him back so bad I remember what are you. Yeah what are you seeing him. She wants she wants his needy. Kisses is what she wants Eric Hauling at her anymore and his stupid laugh now. Oh yeah he always last. It makes her sick. She's not blame her. Yeah he's probably horrible and I would think it was weird like I. I don't think we should see each other anymore. Well it's been really low two seconds ago. Ours fucking pissed it you just because you wouldn't make out with me. I love that. He says it's been real. That is such a thing to say. I know want to say that to somebody might might come back later in some not necessary in a villain form. But I thought there'd be some sort of follow up to that something more than just seeing him across a field and like oh he's making out with honey which also the whatever not care did not care about area's taste men taking taking on fierce street. There's only so many guys to choose for also like a few say that you don't want to go out with somebody so mad and you have to go. I feel feel really bad about making them so mad. Yeah Yeah ooh yeah. Troubling books from the ninety s or like I know this is this is nine nineteen fifty eight it was yeah exact- Oh my God you guys why I and some people from work have decided to watch watch all of ally mcbeal a show I had. I've never seen that show is it's sexual. Politics are shocking really shocking. Tell me more every every time somebody has been sexually harassed it's played for laughs.

Okay it is a hauling hauling alley is is in court against this prosecutor or defendant. I don't know the lie doesn't really matter in the the first few centuries yeah their lawyer their lawyers. It's beside the point so there's a a guy who is overweight. WHO's she's arguing against against? She sees him in the hallway. She goes to confront him about something he has like heart palpitations and passes out. She gives him CPR. He's fine after that. Not and then. His fiancee comes to Allie. And he's like her she's like Oh my God thank you for saving him. He's the best thing that ever happened to me. It's so kind and the woman is also over overweight and she hugs alley and cracks her back. Because that's how big and strong this woman is And then he comes to Elian is like I'm in love with you. Do you think a person like you would be could be interested listed in someone like me and alleys like no and then he comes over he comes to her office again and he's like I totally appreciate that. You can't be with me. I get it but like can I talk to you about the fact that I'm not really in love with my fiance. I love her as a person but like I'm just marrying her because you know we're both oh by the way that we look and me and my co workers augers are screaming. They have no other choice and so he says he was like should I go through with it and she was like I grew up. I'm very room. I am romantic. I think think that we make ourselves a promise when we're little that we're going to be excited walking down the aisle to see the person were in love with and if you're not feeling it then you're not feeling it and maybe you shouldn't marry her and he's like thank you so much breaks it off with a fiance fiance comes back to her. And it's like you have doomed him to a life of loneliness because if you think that he's GonNa find somebody else people like me in him don't have the luxury of falling in love. Oh and again. We are screaming screaming. Oh my gosh. So allie sees him again and takes back what she told him and is like you know what I was trying to think about somebody who I thought might be good with you and I think of my friends and I don't think they'd ever be willing to date you again. We are screaming. And he's like you're right you're right and they get married and Allie comes to the wedding because they saw it was so it's like when it comes to the subject of weight. That's what it's like when it comes to the subject of race. That's what it AH whenever alley feels like she's been trodden upon she brings up some sort of oppression. That happened to black people. There is a scene where she trips a woman. In a grocery store store she gets arrested for it and and the when the police officers taking away she's like watch it need. I remind you of Rodney King and we're like really that's nice there's a scene where somebody has quote unquote hired her to try to get set a rabbi to grant the woman a get which is like Jewish settlers divorce under like Judaism. You have to not just be legally divorced worse if you want to get married in the temple you have to be divorced in the eyes of the temple yes and this is not the law. That's not you don't hire a lawyer to do this. But whatever alley keeps being so fucking antisemitic like instead of Mazal Tov. She says mistletoe. What why would you ever even things like this? Lots fucking stupid. He's like thank you for insulting my religion and she's like sorry but maybe your common sense can't get it through because of that thing on your it's fucking wash talking shocking. This show is insane. Ecology allergy sort of nineties. Like everything horrible is played for laughs. It women get by on their looks. There's another one where they're defending a prostitute and Peter mcnichols. Character gets up and he's like but don't women always use sexes currency and they're like they do not guilty t. That's so bad. It's not just bad badly written yeah it is an evil show. Wow Wow puts bad messaging out there. They just so indicative what the ninety s was like in pop culture. Yeah in your rewatch of friends friends. Have you come across the episode yet where phoebe is just giving massage therapy to a guy and he reaches up and gropes her track place no and he keeps doing it and every time it happens laugh track plays and she's like I don't know what to do and everyone's like well. You're lucky he's hot. I remember that yeah. It is nuts that like so much of that stuff was played for laughs in the nineties. See I'm hyper sensitive. The no homo stuff because like yeah seriously I should clarify. I've actually haven't seen friends a series all the way through. I just every Thanksgiving would watch the Thanksgiving episode in this year. The first year was watching them and it started to hurt my feelings a little bit and I was like. I don't have to watch this this year because there's so so many like jokes whole characters others mom it's like super transphobic too. It's like the whole Super Super Transphobic Kathleen Turner and I was like I would never take that role these days. That was like yeah better now. That was a mistake. I am sorry yeah right at that. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. People have to like you know say it's like snow flaky to watch that and feel triggered by now but but you have to understand that when kids are young watching these things or kids. accentless caught an episode of ally. mcbeal you pay attention to where the laugh track is because it's socially conditions of what's funny. What's acceptable not acceptable? Yeah and kids. It's watching listening to pay attention to that stuff. And then that's what they should do at school. That's what they do and then think about yourself. That's how you you victimize yourself in your mind. Yeah everyone who's now or you're eating and who's right a man is so rich and married to Michelle pfeiffer. Yeah Wow Mike look to that last night. That was shocking shocking. We Love Michelle Five. We Love we love to see her to see her. We love to yes. We hate to see what we hate to see alley mcbeal. I keep watching so that I can scream about it and then tell others show us. Ah I have to get that message out there before somebody reboots it. Mike was like you should reboot it and I was like no uh-huh I need you to reboot fear street. I need I need you to do the best friend I I already real needs to be like like the same exact. Every line is the same. There's no work your there's no there's no work to do any big organization like Secretario work. Yeah that's collating. I love collating typing. Yes yeah anytime. I was involved in a club I tried to be secretary. That's right. That sounds about right. Yeah yeah sounds like the ninety S. Yeah yes did I lose secretary class secretary in sixth grade. Yes I did. Oh I think I ran for secretary to. Oh but that's crazy. I got my revenge because when we took the gifted and talented tests giftedandtalented education main gate. The Guy who beat me for Secretary Lake came up to me. And he's like oh I got. I got a ninety eight point. Eight is like pretty high like Oh yeah cool. I got the ninety eight point nine so I was like. WHO's the secretary now secretary? Now Bitch Secretary Yeah. I wasn't gate to gate. No I don't know that California thing maybe California. They're young. Yeah there you go okay. So let's let's talk about all of like let's try and like narrow down all of honey's instances of either gas lighting or like like her fake memories. Can I point I'd like a yes so many. There's something she does. It's very small. That drives me insane a little bit. I think it right in that scene to where she's like. Oh my God. I love your posters on your wall. You've such great taste and Bekker's like whatever I don't even want these posters and like how can I have them. Can I have them. Yeah you know like like all take them and back realizes shifts really want honey just staring. I'll take the now okay. Like that stuff. Drives me crazy crazy. And then she was like I guess. I don't have to get them now. We live next to each other anyway. Then I think uses that to explain clean where she took the parrot him Like she's doing sort of a half like I said the first one drove me bucket shots. What's next she's like your ask your friends and I'd be like okay? No problem because I didn't fucking say that. Give me my pin. Yeah bill gave me as a very weird. You told me. Yeah I can have in the first thing keys. Beautiful Silver keys okay. The first the first sort of strange while I guess strange thing that we see with honey those is Becka coming home from school and honey's in her room crying talking talking to never mind talking to someone and trying on her clothes yes and she's wearing that's when she's wearing the silky blue blouse she is. She's wearing the scourge skirt that that that Becca hasn't even try has even put on worn wrapping paper skirts. So he's going to where over slinky black catsuit to the Christmas party. You'd be Christmas I I. It's not great. I'm picturing it and it's not great. I can't even really picture it. Honestly can I can I can. That's good. It looks like I need to see like what do you I I I literally googled catsuit while we were while I was reading it and I needed. Yeah like legs and arms legs right together. Legs and arms together all black and she. We know the skirt is silver. We know it's shiny way I'm still stuck on the catsuit. Actually self was the neck. Go up like a Turtleneck as crew neck like a crew necks being a scoop neck serving us like ballet. This is what she serving us. Seventh Grade Dance Recital. Okay it is it is it Meryl Streep Death Becomes her. That's got a black catsuit. Been Aker No. It's the last night. Maybe that's why it's in my head. Okay so she's not the cat to. I always imagine the catsuit as that fabric. That's lightly Sparkley. You're not so interesting. It doesn't say that we talk about the the silvery doesn't say we talk about the said the black cat is slinky. I know that I think it's like a Lycra but it's not. I don't know if my little gas wanted to be sparklys show. I think there's a shiny shimmer to it now. I think we're saying I think it would have been better. But let's facts are facts and that's how it is look. I'm not giving you my opinion. I'm giving you. The facts are facts. Erica my opinion is I don't Wanna I don't WanNa bring my feelings into it. How we have gotten Puckett about facts? What actually that's why we're we're catsuit? WanNa be part of the problem. It's the it's the stretchy material you were like in the light it has like that Sheen. Yes like where. It's like hitting it. Well that's like Jay Carney. Your skin is through so you would see flash photo the red carpet you can see right through it which you need to be wearing like cargo fisherman suit suit silky silver skirt underneath orange skirt looks like a picture. It's me a wraps ker. Don't don't know why so picturing sort of like almost pencil skirt oh silly straight just like or nothing much to be crazy accordion. Is that too much. Sorry I on the fact that I prefer that. But you're right it's out there but I think it's silky many for me it's like a crappy wrap skirt like you know the ones that kind of look like I'm picturing dance outfit. I think I'm a sexual electorally in this time. In those listening have given more thought time listener. Missile sign did when he was nine percent. I'm sure he's like girls like shiny stuff. She has a Chinese silver skirt over a black catsuit and that yeah and yet here we are ruminate to a question. Yes we only knows silver Silver skirt it just keeps saying Silver Sarai needs more than that then remember. There was a moment where she's describing and she's like I found this great silver skirt Italy going to just bring bring their into tears. Yours is really short in the little shop in the old village. Yes yes I got a great skirt. Becca like I said enthusiastically. It's really short and really silky. If any silver silky mini skirt though. So it's not tight because I imagine it being sort of like allusively kind of yeah be like but like like it really moves. Yes on her body but short. I should've guessed it was just like a strip of fabric. That's around her waist. Yeah but I saw it. Being like sort of a fold over. Waste is the material with a zipper. It's remarkable enough people comment on it at the party. Yeah and it's unique enough that everybody thinks what a funny fucking joke. Yeah that when honey which was up. She hasn't been the executive haircut that bitch. Honestly Talk Choker and push her down some stairs. Cut The brakes in her bike. Yeah you know what Poetic Justice. Yeah you push her down some stairs you proper up on a bike pusher in front of a truck and then after she's been hate.

Do you remember the moment where shows like China to about bikes and you can tell that. Rl has done like a little bike research because she's like what kind of bikes did you guys have. What is that like a three speed and Becca um speed or something like that? He probably had one also inducements books. He loves extended baseball sequences. which date on? I don't identify with could I on. I don't understand that we were down third and the bases were loaded. And we're like what the what we've noticed as the RL Stein loves is that the Joker Guy like the funny joke boy likes put food on his face or body Support Egg on his eyes. Earlier there is very fifties joke. Fuck Oh wow right. which was wow something like that? Oh I love that skirt the most beautiful. Oh but see. Here's the thing I would.

Two thousands of not nineties enough or she's wearing patent leather pumps We we don't get. I don't think we talked about the shoes. I can do. Something he doesn't that probably won't pay off but I'm going to Google goal. Black catsuit silver mini skirt. Yes yes does your trailblazer. Oh I I don't i. I mentioned shoes.

Yeah something like that. 'cause you immediately date yourself when you're like I had my bruce springsteen poster would I don't know it's in the nineties even listening to the I don't even know. Yeah he should steer away from should have steered away from it. I don't get it wrong. I love are all Stein. We're just pointing out the things we picked up over five years of podcasting.

Trish Trish ends up face first into some cake. Yes that's right her head Kakinada angle barely breathing fucking Nash. That always that line. I mean we're way ahead now. That line makes me laugh so hard. Because it's like you know. BECCA wakes up from from a crazy coma. 'cause she's constantly passing out because she so crazy. Yeah and then she's like is tricia cater. Mom's like she's okay. She broke her neck. But she's GonNa be okay. I love when they're like. Oh no she's not breathing she's dead and then she's like oh they don't move the body but I'm like she's choke on that K- K in the cake you cry. They're not supposed to move her about move her about the cake we got something. Something's gotTa be must be. Can we talk about also the fact that after that happens when Becca absolutely absolutely snaps and the doctor comes over and he her mom keeps saying that she needs to get total rats. Total total phone call. I might not mean said this very time today if very like yellow wallpaper. Let's lock her in the attic because like she's hysterical like it was like She needs total total. Rats statement. Ever heard that for you know John Phillips Yeah. I'm going to start saying it now I I. I don't early total. I want them to go. Yeah and total rest just feels very dramatic. Feels very like sunset boulevard. Mary of like my friend. Jason is I like. He very often can't do something if he has one thing that he did that. We because he has to decompress musty. That here is Trish falling the stairs or the description of her. And then here's the end of the chapter before and then Trish landed with a sickening crack. which which is classic crappy green crowd size but there's also a crunch yes? He loves people pull out long WOO. SHES OF AIR India. Yes yes he people falling downstairs. Have you guys ever read any Ah V. C. Andrews. No Oh my gosh really scary oops I know mother's been lying. The whole time though. Like drama like timeless taking place in maybe the forties or governor triggering. But there's like what like in a true trauma Wade. Johnny Stop Lying. Yes yeah and if you read the stuff actually written by her she is feminist. Celestin like it's it is good at least on the right side of history. Yeah there are certain ghost writers that are bad but internecine being one. But there's one part where I would say. They talk falling down the stairs moment though. Yes is when Vera falls on the stairs she has brittle bone syndrome falls. Don't spiral staircase spinal. Choose she's brittle bones. It sounds like she is total she does get at the bottom of that circuit. I'm so sorry is brittle bone cinema real thing it is it is but she is at the bottom of the stairs and she's like it just went on the part of skin like she's this just like completely bagged by X. Shells and a scam to bet she was carrying cake. Can I tell you I know gets the actual seen my favorite like. It's not really falling downstairs but is a death. It's not in the goosebumps book series Goosebumps Television Show in the headless ghost. There's this lore of this little boy who lived in this House House and he was spoiled. And you always get stuff sent by the servants up through the dumb waiter and what he loves. More than anything with strawberry draw area is always strawberry ice cream all day all night. He would ring his balance. Want strawberry ice cream strawberry ice cream with the dumb waiter and he would eat it for days and the dumb waiter is coming up with the strawberry ice cream in it. Stops right a little bit below where it's supposed to so the boy opens the dumb waiter and he reaches out to get ice cream but it's lower than than it he reaches and he's like he needs to strawberry robbery ice cream to get that fixed he asks board leans forward reaches for any falls and he crashes and the drum waiter goes all the way to the bottom and when people found him they couldn't tell the difference. The boy's face and it was so good Konak. That's great. Oh yeah all night isn't imagining West. Later Death to or I guess the people who wrote that show with actually not hit. That was ever talk. Show which will be my life. When I'm writing these tips? Yes which they're calling point fear because they're they aren't calling it point horror and they're only focusing on his books. That's which is saying. Please unacceptable so many female writers in the Point Point Horror series. Yeah and almost all protagonists or female. So instead they're gonNA focus only on male written books with executive producers. Rl Stein. And John. What you really John? I'm choose involvement shoes on it. Yeah he's GonNa he's executive director. I'm excited very notoriously. Torius Louis do whatever you want with my stuff. He's he's he's asked you for super headstones not precious about his stuff at all so I'm sure he's just like sure what everyone do. Whatever he doesn't care go for it? He's buried they would go to the other lesser known writers too. But that's the thing it's like. They want that name they wanted. That name hasn't Stephen King isn't that true. We certainly written more like you combine goosebumps and Fear Street and his point horror books and he's coming back with the new fear street books which we don't really like them. Yeah we only read you may now kill the bride covered fucked. That is so crazy crazy. You shop into knows it's all that is my least favorite kind of Rl Stein. Narration where the characters first person and they're like. I guess I should tell you a little about myself. Trying to buy goosebumps. Yeah Yeah Hello teen creeps listeners.

Honey's mind we really. It's not even the full chapter after it's still starts out with Becca and then it it's just the last half There's Rita's the stairs. Tristesse cross when when we last left off there was a sickening crack. That's right next Chapter Chapter Twenty three a Frightening Silent Knight. Everyone seemed to freeze as if caught in a snapshot. Shot a snapshot of Horror. The fire popped noisily in the fireplace. Someone screamed the room came back to life. Becker was one of the first to scramble across the room to Trish. Trish had landed face down her chest on top of the cake the dark icing and cream filling. Excuse me the dark icing and cream filling had splattered bladder out across the floor. Chris didn't move her eyes were closed. Her head was tilted at a pick Yulia Angle. What immediately lately falls into something worse later I think falls is very frustrating? which is one honey? No ooh king gas here. This tristesse head. It was tilted wrong. It shouldn't be bent like that. Yeah that's the other part. So like there's just like a ton of her own and then she. She requested change the schedules that she could be in home room with her and sit next to her and they walk together to school every day. I was not going to be surprised to find out that that was the only class. That honey was attending. Yeah Yeah Yeah and then just walking sometimes I take my bike and then literally honey goes yes. I need to get a bike. Why do you have the like the inability ability for her to take a hint and like it's like back hourly easel? You're getting the hint Bekker's like Actually I have this like like why can do that. And she's like this. Why do that too? It's very. She's especially now that you don't have lila anymore. Yeah I know and then after Trish she it's like why don't you phrase it like that. Yeah I love that moment of Becca going. That was a very interesting way to put. That is it's such a that is like a very very subtle little slip like now that you don't have lila anymore. Now that I don't have her. Yeah what is your saying Jews like. Yeah now that Lila had her accident pitch. That's not how you now that I'm your only friend and like also backup honey. took the break. Yeah cable out out of out of flightless but like Becca she lives. I think I'm really paranoid 'cause like the second that should happen. I would be like mm-hmm walking hung did that. I don't know how they're she does think that no. But like she's like a little. You said that. But like I would have been. It's like that bitch just sabotage my friends bike. She's been acting. I mean she mentioned that to Trish when they're walking around the track instead of being at lunch and Tricia yes and bill and Tricia something like it'd be really dangerous to accuser that like that's not fair the fact that every goes interesting. He's kind kind of cute. Also the one hit on you disease chapter break but were hunting. I mean Beca says what do I do about hunting interests like we. We can just kill her and then cut to new chapter. I'm just kidding that'd be crazy. He's like yeah me too. I was also getting being also. I just thought it was like really unfair for Becca to not let Trish eat lunch. Like I think that she should have been like. Let's get to like just get like we can get granola bars and we'll walk. It said she's like no. We must walk and not I would have another breakdown. Yes she was like whenever you say all of your breakdown Well it was the ninety s and this is a bit Chubby sued work on that. What was the book that we read where the girl used to be Chubby In worked in track administration at her schooling ran along sw sixteen candles. Areo Nicholas Prime. Yes mm-hmm yeah because she ran a bunch Yes I take it hot hot. Yeah so so. All the happens happens happens. It's nothing but God. This book is so frustrating. It is such a crazy read. Yeah I mean it does it is very upsetting. It feels like you're in bed with a fever at Christmas time. Time downstairs at a party and your fever is so high. I can't tell you why because you have strep throats. Yeah well yeah you can't use your like it is. It is delicious in in the way that like I could see this living in a lifetime movie basically already is yeah. It's it's great it like as soon as it was like the last period was typed. It became a lifetime. Happy as I would love love for this to be lifetime movie a Lifetime Christmas movie. Yes yes more than anything more than anything. Yes if there is a god it's up to us. We must know someone. Yea The lifetime movie that you wish to see in the world. Wow let's pitch it. It's this one left for us to do it and cast ourselves. People are went to high scores.

Nick I love the breakdown for for Lila be must be able to ride a bike and do her own stunts extended sequences of setups. Yes my God thanks must be willing to do sit ups on Canterbury all see. The thing is very the sit ups while talking thing reads as like a horror movie from the seventy S. What the team makes me laugh? I was like like Oh this is so this is so does not feel my like my natural at you guys as is like Oh my God. Some old white man wrote this book. Look about what he thinks teen girls said about and talk about. Yeah not as aggressively as some of the other ones. Yeah but less than some of his other ones too. 'cause like I think his work in cheerleaders is like really good as far as painting. Teenage Girls But this did kind of feel like we'll come on. What are you going to wear to the party? A lot of. It's like they're like surprising. Time to flesh them out as characters though because so busy writing all the gas lighting. Yes the time. There's no time to find out WHO BECCA is. We have to drive her crazy as quickly as possible. Yeah and nor should we find out anything about honey. We don't find out about event. Why why do we never find out why she's doing that? Normally we would apply. That's what usually that's a genius. Move because it kind of reminds me of like some of the old like horror movies. How like wet wet before we were like? But what Mike Myers. We'd like exactly it's like. Why do we care but then once the white back we'll back a while back but that's the thing why the Rosenblatt Christmas why the like why? Why Pacific Yeah why? The specific campers in The the difference for me is that those are personal killings not personal this is so very and it's so important portent to honey why sanity why Becca what just h- The death of her mother short haircut and they have fun yes.

We also did skip that hunting. Eric date for a second and then she breaks up with Eric just like you did Becca wink wink. I know which I guess. If you're going to like Alan and the Olive Bekker's greatest it. And then she she approaches and she she honey approaches Beckett says is that why.

I wish that was the arousing sold in Burns and noble well. Well it's just a pair of just. Don't realize that like the reason why the Gotcha game was soaking. So can you pillow hand able to get those hands all the way around Polish sausage around her neck. He's like really done. Got Deluxe edition of the game to come with a silver water pistol and it you have to wear the at the beginning of the game you roll dice. Whoever ruled the highest is honey and has to put the ribbon? Yeah Yeah so before their rousing game of Gotcha fake memory. She's feeding her. Is that remember how people always used to say they looked like twins uh-huh and and back like no we do not look like what are you know because we were the same outfits all the time when we we trade socks we treat pants. We treat everything and it's like and Becca is still at the point where she is like. I remember this. I know EXC ask. These memories are so specific does that affect and like their. What sixteen in this book? Seventeen maybe I think sixty and they. These memories are from third grade fourth grade. So that's like it's not that long ago years ago this research cert and you still have your memory. Ten fourth graders like would it be like okay so I do think that I probably just forgot that story of yours. We're the one sitting in your car. I'll never forget it. Imagine now I hope that I don't because that is a gorgeous story is like imagine if it wasn't just that I forgot got you told me that story I was that woman. Yeah that is what this is life you and you. Oh I these are your. You're like Oh yeah I guess I did it. I guess it's just so sorry I I am at a point like because my memory is so bad mike. My boyfriend will say something. You'd be like remember and I'll go no so I'm just going to have to take your word for it happened. I have to but I am not BECCA. Bekka is yes team won also like it is like. There's so many stories stories that like usually. If I'm reminding that happened after more details you like. Oh Yeah but these are like my realization. I need three pieces of of context in the Nike. That's what makes various things are very very specific but when their stuff like the fact that she doesn't have an attic and that's part part of the story than the that's a moment where you're like. Okay Oh yeah you're right. That's yeah that that I don't have an attic. I didn't have an attic. Does not acknowledge that that was said Komo. That's young Nana's do your homework do your homework. That's the thing is get your lives right specific about the things you know you can be specific about and vague about the things you don't. That's that's what she should've been doing the whole time ish she. It should have been that she was like watching. And maybe that's why it's Becker. So she was watching back in fourth grade imagining if she was back as friend seeing things that happened between Becca and other people. And then you show up and you say that that was you guys. Yeah yeah sure. It's like we're like what could be true from context tax bill. Does she remembers on of like Song that they all sang together as a class in assembly or something and she's like yeah and we were standing next to each other remember and then you dropped your music and I said that you could look over mine and and then we kept laughing and giggling. Yeah but it was like and she saw forgotten that looks right. Yeah exactly or you seasoning. That happens right. And you're like like Oh yeah and like at lunch like we always sit this one table and I remember like your mom always used to have ham sandwiches coaches for you in like you hated ham and like if those things are true and you saw the way to get away with us doing shit like that and it's when it if if if Becker's then like I don't remember you I don't remember that instead of fully freaking out you just go. I guess soon. We weren't as good a friends as I do very quietly. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Exact- here's another idea. Honey Bee likable. That's that's the problem I maybe if you're likable like and she had her hands behind her back and I saw her at the party wearing a catsuit skirt I'd like a whole lot. And then she bring her hands on the windows. When does it break? The tree gets knocked over. Yeah I mean yeah. That's the thing is like monsters. Just not good good. She's not good at talented mister rippling. She talked to Mr Ripley is he was good at talented mister rippling. Until he started to get bad at it until he got to when you get too comfortable dribble and sloppy good. You've got to be nice. You GotTa be nice to the parents gotta get in good with the parents. Yeah it's fucking things. That's the problem album. She's lying about random shed will. She ends up sort of getting away with all of it sort of so a little bit more than Sorta so beca comes. I don't know we call it. I don't know what the next scene after this or Beca to the house. We don't even know if honey actually lives never do we never find a model title home she should. I can't wait to find out if we do in best friend too. Yes she gets these freaks out she sees them and she's like a knife and she's like you does you just need to fully Russia's at honey holding the night out at her chest and then paints and faint and then faints because she can't hang and and bill comes to save. This is when we leave. We leave the perspective and it's not first person but we leave the perspective of Becca and then bill. We'll get sloppy fight with its money. I don't know why he's like he's like reaching for the knife handle and I was like really just like us take her on the knock could out of her hand just like be more aggressive. He just wasn't so it's but BECCA was screaming too loud to hear her screaming as she flew across the room screaming out out her fury as she lunged toward honey with the knife. Aimed at honey's chest yes go. Yeah the bill manages to get. The knife doesn't in the scuffle he a he dislike. It gets away from BECCA. Yeah he gets it out of BEKKER's hands I guess or he knows on the ground and then tries to grab it. They're struggling a he has. Is it at one point and then honey has it. And then he falls down falls like into the the knife and honeys like yes as he stumbled back. He made a desperate desperate attempt to hold onto the knife. But honey had it now. Catching his balanced bill surged forward reaching reaching and tumbled into the knife and the blade appears to his chest startled honey uttered a shrill cry and then he's dead and she's like Okay take knife put in back as hand. WAKEUP BECA used to have him. I'm so sorry I will protect you. Know it was self defense and Becca like you. That's the moment when it switches to honey it's like each and honey.

618 - 10 Facts About Solo 401(k) Retirement Accounts You Should Know

"Hello friends it's great to have you back this week on the money girl. podcast where my my mission is to help you live and love the journey. I've been hosting this show since two thousand eight and I'm also an author speaker and consumer advocate. My most recent publication is called debt. Free blueprint how to get out of debt and build a financial life you love. It's available as a paperback or an e book. And and now it's available as an audio book. If you'd like to hear me narrate it you can pick up the audiobook version at audible dot com. Maybe it would make a good holiday gift for you or someone you know who may need a little help with debt. I hope your plans for the holidays are coming together nicely. I'll be traveling to Alabama CAMMARATA. visit my husband's family there which is always a treat and I think it's a good time to make sure that you think about what went well this year. What went poorly and spend some time thinking about the goals that you want to set into motion for next year? So think about your downtime and how you can use I use it to really reflect on the past and the future that you want to build for yourself and your family. The end of the year also brings up a lot of financial questions and so today's show is inspired by Brady. H who is a member of my dominate. Your dollars facebook group. He recently recently posted some great questions he says I had an LLC in which I was the sole owner and opened a solo 401k and a Solo Roth for a one K.. But I changed the business to an S. Corporation and a hired my girlfriend as a non paid employees. Can I still still have the solo 401k's even though I have an employee also do my contributions for the current year need to be in the account by April all sixteen or just requested by then. Brady thanks for your host in the dominate. Your Dollars Group These are some great questions. And we're definitely only gonNA cover those. It's a fantastic plan. The Solo 401K. It's a great plan for solar preneurs but it does come with some unique rules so in this podcast. I'm going to answer Brady's questions and explain ten facts about using a solo. 401K that you need to know so you can save save more for retirement. This episode number six hundred eighteen called Solo. 401K retirement account facts. You should know and as usual usual. You'll find the notes for each show and the full archive of podcasts. In the money girl section at quick and dirty tips dot com. Okay so oh before you use a solo for a one K.. Make sure that you understand the facts that we're going to cover. In the show fact number one eligibility is generally generally limited to solo preneurs so a solo. 401K is a type of retirement plan for the self employed it's also known as an individual for 401k a one participant 401k and eight UNI 401k. It's all the same thing these come with some pretty unique requirements in the world of retirement plans. That is you can only use it. If Your Business has no fulltime employees other than the owner or owners and their spouses houses you qualify for a solo. 401k no matter your profession or business entity such as a sole proprietor partnerships limited liability letty company LLC or corporation. You can be self employed part time full time or even while you simultaneously work for other employers there is no threshold for how much revenue you're solo. Business has to make as long as you intend to make a profit and you don't have excluded employees. He's on the payroll you're eligible for a solo. 401K however be aware of two exceptions to the no employees rule. One one is what I mentioned. If your spouse works in your business even as a paid employee you can still have a solo 401k. And you and your spouse vows can both make contributions as owner employees to the plan and I'll I'll cover more about how much you can put in a moment. Another exception to this. A new employee rule is the ability to have part time employees. Who Work less than a thousand hours per year? So That's about twenty hours a week week. A lot of people. Forget about this rule so you can have part time employees and have us all a 401k. Note that you can have an unlimited number of of businesses or other self employed people working with you such as ten ninety nine contractors and freelancers. You can always have those but once you hire. Oh you're a W. Two employees who works fulltime hours you can no longer contribute to a solo. 401K it's important to keep in mind that self employment and doesn't need to be your only source of income. As I mentioned you can work for other companies as well for example. Let's say you might work a fulltime job for or an employer and do some consulting work on the side in that case you can use a solo 401k to set aside some extra income for retirement all right fact number. Two hiring employees freezes your account. So you're probably wondering what would happen to your Solo. 401K on K.. If you break the no employees rule after all you know your business can change and you may need to hire some fulltime workers one day so just to review you. You can have a solo four one K.. When you have part time employees or use independent contractors in your business but once you have a full-time worker on the payroll erol you can no longer make contributions to your solo 401k? What happens is that your plan will be frozen and that simply means that you can still have it and manage it and allow it to grow as is but you won't be able to add any new contributions to the account so it just s kind of stays as is you're allowed to manage it kind of you know move your money and and the investments that you have you just can't put any new contributions in that account and remember you've got plenty of other options as an employer you can open a regular 401k? To offer as an employee benefit then you could roll rollover you're frozen solo plan into the new regular 401k and cancel the old account or you and any other solo 401k on K.. Participants could roll over your accounts into an IRA. So let's get back to the first part of Brady's question. He said that he changed his business type from an LLC to a corporation and hired his girlfriend as a non paid employees Brady near one of those actions makes you unable to the have a solo. 401K as I mentioned you can have a solo 401k. No Matter Your Business entity type. But I'm a little confused about your paid paid. Employees and unpaid employees really isn't an employee but a volunteer. And even if you did pay your girlfriend as a W. Two employees you could keep your solo 401k. If she doesn't work more than a thousand hours per year or about twenty hours per week Brady also asked about contribution Shen deadlines which will get to a moment so from what you've told me so far brady. It sounds like you are fine to keep your solo for a one K.. Fact number KNBR three contribution limits are high with a solo 401k. You Act as both the employer and the employee in Your Business that means you can make both voluntary contributions on the employee side and profit sharing contributions on the employer side the combination Russian of these contributions allows you to save more than with any other type of retirement account. That is a huge benefit to this type of plan for Twenty Twenty Twenty on the employee side of Solo 401k. You can contribute as much as one hundred percent of your salary up to nineteen thousand five hundred or or up to twenty six thousand if you're over age fifty now as the employer you can also make profit sharing contributions in an amount that depends on your business entity type and both kinds of contributions are always one hundred percent vested so you never lose them if you lead the company or dissolve it if fear a sole proprietor a general partnership or have a single member. LLC You can contribute up to twenty percent of a participants earned earned income. Now if you're inc profit sharing contributions can be up to twenty five percent of the business entities income that is subject to the Self Employment Tax. It gets a little complicated so you may want to get some help from tax accountant to figure out exactly how much you can put in. However there is a maximum I annual contribution limit to be aware of its fifty seven thousand or sixty three thousand five hundred if you're over age fifty so for example? Well if you're younger than age fifty and you Max out your employee salary deferrals at nineteen thousand five hundred. The business could contribute an additional thirty seven thousand five hundred to your account for a total of fifty seven thousand dollars for the year. And if you're over age fifty you could Max out the employee decide at twenty six thousand dollars and the business could put in another thirty seven thousand five hundred to reach the sixty three thousand five hundred dollar limit I met. I know that's a lot of numbers. I would definitely encourage you to go back to the post this. Show the notes for this show to review these numbers. If they're kind of flying over your head Ed and as I mentioned you may WanNa get some help from a tax accountant to at least get you set up maybe the first year that you create your solo 401k. Now if the owners spouse also earns income from the same business they can both make contributions to the same solo 401k. The spouses spouses contribution. Limit is separate from the owner so in other words. If you're married and you're working for the same company you can double up and contribute twice the numbers that I just mentioned it comes out to one hundred and fourteen thousand per year or one hundred twenty seven thousand per year if you both are over age fifty if days so those are very high contribution limits but know that when a couple does participate in a solo 401k. They don't have to contribute the same amount amount or even make any contributions at all. There is not a required annual minimum contribution that you have to make a solo 401k as the employees or as the employer aright fact number four there are contribution deadlines the deadline to contribute to a solo. 401K in K.. Depends on your business entity type if you are a sole proprietor a general partnership or a single member. LLC You have until your tax filing deadline. It's typically April fifteen or even October fifteen if you file an extension and you have until those dates to make employee and employer contributions for the prior year but if you are incorporated or a multi member LLC your your employer and your employees side of these solo 401k contribution deadlines or different as an employee you only have until December thirty one to make current contributions and as the employer. You have more time you've got until your tax filing deadline including any extensions so the second part of Brady's this question is about the timing of current year contributions since he now has an S. Corporation. He will need to make employee. Contributions is by the end of the year but he has until his tax filing deadline to make profit sharing contributions as the business owner and the funds must be in the account by that date. So be sure to start the process several weeks earlier to make sure that you hit these deadlines fact Number Five Live you get excellent tax benefits just like with other types of retirement plans a solo. 401k gives you terrific tax benefits. That's why I love of these accounts. As I mentioned it allows you to stash away more money than other accounts because you get to contribute as both the employee and Dan the employer every pretax dollar. You contribute to a traditional solo 401k as an employee is tax deferred until you take withdrawals and the future in other words it reduces your taxable income for the current year additionally your investment growth in the the account is also spared from tax until you take distributions after age fifty nine and a half now on the employer side you're solo 401k. Contributions tribulations and expenses for all participants are generally tax deductible for your business and even if you don't Max out these high allowable limits limits that I've talked about making modest contributions over time can really add up. Let me give you an example. Let's say you're a sole proprietor. And you will have sixty thousand dollars in net self employment income in twenty twenty if you were to say ten percent in a solo. 401K a you would reduce your taxable income by six thousand dollars and if you invest this amount of money for thirty years with a moderate average return of eight percent you could easily have a million dollars or more to spend in retirement. So imagine investing more than ten percent of your income with a solo four one K.. You can reduce your taxes and build up a very healthy nest egg at the same time. All right let's take a short break to thank right. The sponsors who help keep money girl going and then we'll cover the remaining five facts you need to know.

We're back on fact number six. which is you can choose a Roth version the solo? 401K also comes in a roth or after tax version with a roth. You must pay tax up front on contribution and so you don't receive an immediate benefit in the current tax year however future withdrawals of both original contributions and your investment and earnings are one hundred percent tax free which is amazing. And this is true. As long as you've had the account open for at least five years and you reach age fifty nine and a a half another huge benefit. Is that unlike a roth. IRA which prohibits high earners from making contributions there is no oh income limit for a roth. Solo 401k it comes with the same annual contribution limits as the traditional version. I won't go through the mall again. But their high and one more thing to know about the Roth note that Roth contributions can only apply to the employee side of a solo. 401K one K when you make contributions as an employer they must always be made on a pre-tax basis. Moving onto fact number. Seven rollovers are allowed as I previously mentioned you can generally rollover funds from a solo 401k into other types of retirement accounts as long. There's your moving funds into a like account no tax will be due for instance. You could roll over a roth. Solo 401k to a Roth IRA or a traditional IRA to traditional solo 401k. Thank gives you the flexibility to consolidate retirement accounts when needed fact number eight loans may be possible a solo. 401k may allow you to take a loan from yourself. If you set up this feature in your plan you can typically borrow up to fifty thousand dollars or fifty percent of your account. Balance whichever is less for example if your Solo 401k when K has twenty thousand dollars in it you could borrow half of that or ten thousand dollars from yourself you can use those funds for anything you want with a maximum payback period of five years. In some cases you can include a feature that would allow a longer payback period. Such as fifteen years. Here's if you use the money to buy a primary residence however you must repay alone with the interest rate spelled out in your plan. It might be the prime crime rate plus one percent for example any amounts that you don't pay back on time we'll be treated as an early distribution so that's not a good situation Asian to get into because it would be subject to income tax plus an additional ten percent penalty if you're younger than age fifty nine and a half fact number Burnett nine maintenance is low having a solo. 401K is relatively simple to manage and it's inexpensive compared to a regular 401k. Okay you don't need to file tax documents until you're playing grows significantly if you have more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars at the end of a tax year you you must file a tax form. It's called fifty five hundred easy and the cost to set up and administer a solo 401k. It's going to vary depending on the investment. Confirm that you use and the total assets that you have in the plan there might be an initial fee of one hundred dollars and monthly fees of twenty dollars when you're just getting getting started and establishing a plan it's easy could literally take less than thirty minutes and our last fax number ten. There are plenty of investment choices you can put solo 401k contributions and a variety of investments. What's available depends on the firm that you choose such as a bank or a brokerage but it typically includes a menu of mutual funds were exchange traded funds at a minimum since a solo? 401K offers high. Hi contribution limits. It's perfect when you've got high self employment income and no fulltime employees. The only downside is that if you do plan Ryan to hire employees you have to make some changes down the road but in my opinion it's well worth the benefits that you'll receive now.

Experience the joys of massage therapy self care essential oils to promote total wellness and healthy communication among families in their daily lives and left that Sharon has been licensed massage therapist for fourteen years and many other training and certifications but we are here today with her to focus on the intersection of essential oils and massage Sharon. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me absolutely. I can't wait to dive into this topic. Because I think that for most of us be overlap of essential oils and massages. Like no brainer right. It's seemed right logically but for some that might be a totally new concept or people like me who I love it but I don't necessarily know wide like what's the science behind in. Are there certain oils that are better for massage versus others. So I'm excited to dive in. Let's start with. Just tell me how you got started using oils with your massage practice absolutely so it actually actually goes back to how I got into massage over. Fourteen years ago I came home from college. It was in the late. Nineteen Ninety nine two thousand. I can't remember exactly but I came home and my mom came up to me. She said. Oh my gosh let me tell you about these essential oils and it was literally one of those Hannah forehead moments when when I said Oh no what are Mommy and daddy into now right and she said no let me tell you daddy was in the kitchen and he was. He actually hurt himself selfish. Sometimes we do and we're cooking in the kitchen. And she said I grab this oil that they call the Swiss army knife oils and she used it on my father and and both of them were blown away with how quickly that it stopped the reaction that he had had and also helped with the whole process. Afterwards and to This Day my dad will still not be without that essential oil so I said okay. Well that's great for you guys but when I have to interrupt just just because the other day my daughter stepped on a hot iron hot a hot glue gun that was left on the floor and stepped on it and that was the first first thing we went to. We grabbed our lavender. We you know just dropped it right there on her foot and it was like an hour later. She's running around on her foot again so it really is such a great oil to have especially in the kitchen where yes burns are likely absolutely. Keep that one in the kitchen. The lavender in the kitchen I share and I'm glad that she's okay now too. So and then I was there to work the horse sales. In course that had been given people problems all week long and my mom came up to me like this goofy grin ends head here take oil with you. 'cause she was taking this horse to the ceiling and I was a little nervous about it and she said. Use this piece in calming for you to calm you down and and then use it on the horse to and I was like okay. Whatever so I get I let the horse smell the oil and she flips upper lip which is a way that they memorize sense? Actually actually and she I could tell she liked the oils like okay. Well that's a good sign and then took her to the ring and I kid you not. This crazy horse was is like putty in my hands and totally different than she'd been all week with everybody else and so I said okay. Animals can't really make things up. There must be something to yeah this essential oils and that was my introduction to oil as well fast forward and my mother unfortunately passed away in two thousand. Three of a brain aneurysm. So Oh sorry thank you so much. And so before our conversation Conversation that my mom and I had before she passed away when she told me that I I should go to massage school because the flexible hours in an opportunity help people. Because that's what I love to help people and so I. I went to a friend of mine who did massage and I said. Hey a have a whole bunch of these essential oils. I don't know how to use them and had not decided to actually go to massage Michael when I talked to my friend and so she traded me. Several oil traded her several oils for massage and during the sessions I realized I was being touched on more than just a physical Michael level that I was getting emotional. He'll as basically getting supported on a couple of different levels now. I know that she used some of those oils. She'd gotten from me in trade and I know she didn't know how to use them but no those oils or making a difference Touching me on those different levels too but going through those massages helped me make the decision to go to massage school. Oh so I went to massage. School did not learn very much at all about essential oils in massage school. Surprisingly after I came out I did massage for many years and hand use different Wales. Try Different things through the years not a whole lot. I mean some of the ones that my mom had and side note have innocent oil at the Bible Kit. That has a cassette tape with it. That's a low. Yes very cool. So I use the oils. Couple of different times friend came in in about two thousand fifteen and she said Hey. Have you ever heard of these young living oils and I said yeah sure. Can you grab me this one. And this one and she said sure and then the next time she came in and I asked her for pain away oil. 'CAUSE I love using panel way. That's one of the ones that my clients could see a difference with pretty significantly pretty quickly and generally what's in panel for those. That aren't familiar with that blend peppermint and winter green and some other really amazing oils. It help with muscle any kind of muscle tension aches and pains that kind of thing so it is a wonderful just overall blend so as like deep relief they have any of the ones that you do research about that can help soothe sued the ASAF tissues ligaments. Tendons muscles are fantastic. Of course to us when massaging you yourself or your family. So a couple different blinds but anything with peppermint and winter green are gonna be really great to the tissues for sure and so is that one of the big benefits of using essential toils in massage is just the will you kind of said that you could feel be essential oils doing something more than just physical when you're getting your I sort of oil massage right so yeah so let's Atkinson more of that. We've got the physical aspect and the like emotional spiritual aspects. So let's dive into those IOS benefits. Win combining oils with massage absolutely. Will we know that we know the science behind oils. How they actually passed the essential? Oil Molecules Are Small Enough Are Small enough to pass the blood brain barrier and support our whole body systems and not just A symptom so that we know that we have the physiological zoological piece but then the emotional support oils joy and grounding in release and even in Frankencense in White Angelica. Those Wales can actually. I've seen it in my massage work. And there's tons of science to back it up to that actually can affect us on the emotional level because they support. Well I mean the whole body systems support and we have a whole bunch of personal stories with our family with how joyous helped us through grief and a couple of the other oils have really helped us along that journey. And I've seen it with my clients who come in to when they are dealing with just regular stresses they're dealing with daily upset stress away on the temples is a great way to just calm into bring them back into their bodies and help to ground them. Why didn't Jelica is phenomenal for grounding and bringing in what I mean by that is just making you feel more like you're connected to to your body and connected to Earth and it's a beautiful thing when we add in some of those emotional support was at home and in the massage table setting at imagined that for some people in this is so not museum? I call myself a massage whore like massage from anyone anytime anyday and but some people are buried couldn't anxious nervous about the idea of coming in and letting a stranger touch their body right so you find that the oil can help kind of those more anxious. People calmed down to the point where they're really not worrying about that anymore. One hundred and ten percent and you know a lot of people have had doctors actually send patients to me for different reasons in anxiety of courses one of those and so oh people love it when they they come in they said wow. You're you're place. Just feel so calm and peaceful and I've had several people comment on that Ah-ha oils. It's a little trick my see right absolutely been a huge asset. Now I am a very scientific based raced therapist but until I used to think Oh oils are Foo foo and not play with them a whole lot. But then when I started incorporating I was like okay I stand corrected there. There is a lot more to these and so it's been an incredible journey using them with my kids and my family. I want to hear all your tips and in secrets and recipes will do that. After a quick break support today comes from daily harvests. Now here on the show we always talk about being health unconscious taking care and prioritizing. Your health is so important so I always try to be mindful of what I eat. Even my quickest meals which isn't always easy so much easier cheaper and convenient and often tastier right to grab for it. The carb filled salty salty. Sweet quick processed foods but it's so important for even those quick meals to really take care of yourself. That's why I I love. Daily harvest fairly harvests makes it so easy to eat more fruits and vegetables with thoughtfully sourced chef crafted foods that can be repaired in minutes or way. Less daily harvest works directly with farmers to harvest organic fruits and vegetables at their peak and freezes them within twenty twenty four hours to lock in their nutrients. We know how important this is. In the essential oil world right to work directly with farmers to harvest those plants at the peak peak time and then tip quickly process them to turn them into essential oils. That have captured the peak therapeutic value. Same comes from our food and I love the with daily harvest. All the foods. Stay fresh in your freezer till you're ready to enjoy them.

We're talking all about massage and essential oil so shared winter. Some of your sort of dirty tricks that you use as a massage therapist when it comes to oils that make people people go You gotta go to Sharon. She's the best okay as long as you don't tell anybody know what we're telling everybody now stress away as is like I said I mentioned before is great on the temples and then also valor or Frankincense. I love putting those on the neck as a just more of a comic homage grounding blend also I will also say Frankencense is absolutely my secret weapon it Kinda just does whatever I need it to do. My my clients will come in with sore backs or this or that the other end I do it. I mean some of my clients literally have had for fourteen years so a lot of their massages. are similar. I tried to do a different massage every single time depending on what the client comes in needs for me by adding in the oils is a great way to kind of change. Things up a little bit frank like I said Frankencense literally like they they call it. The coconut oil of his enjoyable has like over. Ten thousand uses in truly has been my secret grow weapon and does whatever I need it to do in the on the back on the neck in breathing it in just any way you wanna use it use. Frank Frank is a friend is smy favorite. I I love it so much but I never really thought of it as like a massage oil us. So that's really interesting to hear one hundred ten percent use it at home all the time time. Use It with your children and I kind of am very careful with it. I actually don't defuse it as much unless I'm really trying to concentrate in right or create one of my courses something something like that then it really helps with that concentration piece to but I- slather myself in it. I did it today just so saying right before this and then also also of course Panama. Now I have been using the CBD Muscle Rub is all the rage right now that CBD Russell Rep sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt you but now is so good like it has saved me so many times okay so these oils have just made a massage therapist life so much easier. I just wanted to say and so the muscle rub is fantastic. especially my clients have been using it on their knees on when they come in with the regular aches and pains. I mean the coolest Zoll that any of them that have the the cooling effect any oils have a cooling effect or or more of a warming effect. Some of the oil is also that I might use sometimes in the raindrop technique that that are used in raindrop technique like Oregano and time and people. Those are considered more hot oils. 'cause the wraps it rapid absorption but they're also very berry very a beneficial and therapeutic to the body and the spine in particular and then also it just helps boost my clients wellness. You know some of them come in. They're getting over something they don't know they're starting to get something in. There's been cases where people come in to see me and then they call me two days later they said Oh my gosh you know that week long flu. That's going around well mark. I got it but it only lasted two days because I came in and saw you for a massage ahead of time in pushed it through my system faster. Yeah well there's another benefit breath it right there absolutely absolutely so you said raindrop. Do you mind if we pause on that for a minute and talk about raindrop verb. It absolutely Ha John. So raindrop technique. It's a specific technique of applying the essential oils. It was developed by D. Gary Young so a lot of the young living people there are probably somewhat familiar. But I'm sure they'd love to learn more and then people who've never heard of it before they're going to be wondering what on Earth does that absolutely well basically as you he said. It's a technique of applying oil. Is I you start with the feet and the oils that are typically used in Oregano thyme Basil Winter Green Majority. Cyprus burst peppermint Valor Aroma. Sees in some people will add in another oil. Kinda I support. If they're feeling like emotional support oil something like that but you vita flexible. I am which was a technique taught by Stanley boroughs and Gary Young really loved his technique. You do that to your feet. And then you drop the oil through the air onto the back in a particular order and in Syria to a series of strokes with it. There's tons of places out there where you can learn it. There's videos you can watch for it and I'm I'm excited. I'm going to be teaching my team team soon. Have a class where I go through the whole thing with them. Everybody needs to learn raindrop. Please do your research look it up. Learn how to do it on yourself and on your family's I'm you can do it to yourself on your feet. It's harder to do it on your back right but you can do it with your children heavily diluted with your children I've done it is a great way to basically some people say detox is despite some people say hydrates the spine you know. There's is a phenomenal resource about the raindrop as the statistical validation of the raindrop technique believed. It's by Dr David Stewart about the Internet is just a hand up to show you some of the results that people had. It's really easy quick. Read worth it to if you want to see some of the the validity of it. That's great out. Grab that link from you. After this in we'll put it in the show notes so it's easy for people to find absolutely great will thank you for going into raindrop in an I personally have had a raindrop. There really is nothing quite like it like. There's not a lot of manipulation of the muscles like you would think of as a typical massage but when you leave you feel like you've gotten on a full-body Swish massage Insane I have had so many clients say that they said wow I feel like I totally got a full body massage so if you can teach your husband how to do it at home for you. Then you're going to get the benefits of like a full body. Massage raindrop right right. Do to each other nice like tackling the way to spend an evening smell like pizza. The end leads. That's exactly right something we'll go to the store smell like a pizza hut. The last question. move onto closing questions. Sharon paint a picture of how you use your Sancho oils in massage as far as how you dilute them. What's the ratio you know if someone were to go into talk their massage therapists and say? Hey I want you to use these oils. What would they tell them how to do them? Absolutely well first and foremost if you can find a massage therapist who is familiar with oils. That is fantastic. If not introduce them to them for sure it will just a can actually actually adds so much value to their practice and they will thank you for it take your oils in so basically when my clients come in stress away is one that I will a lot of times. TMZ put on their temples when if they start face up or even when they're start by face down I always ask permission to use an oil on one of my clients or oils. I don't just start pouring hiring them on them. And so and then I will also like as I mentioned before putting their valor or Frankencense on the neck. It's just a way to kind of calm them. Ground them bring them into their own bodies. And then the ones you've mentioned so far with those be diluted or put on need I actually do them a neat now when I start adding massage cream or massage oil that naturally will dilute them. I have never. I've applied tons and tons of oils neat in never really had a problem with with the ones that I've mentioned the stress away. The Valor Frankincense are usually very mild. So most bodies can handle them. But I do tell my clients that if for whatever reason they start to feel a burning sensation sensation or anything else to please let me know and I absolutely deluded is very quickly. But I've never ever had a problem and I've worked on literally thousands of body the but like I said if I ever do one of the ones that is considered more of a hot oil even panay actually can be considered a hot oil. Then I will have my dilution carrier oil oil right. They're very close so that I can apply there quickly in it immediately takes away any the burning hot sensation whatsoever. Also WanNa add them into the feet. I've never had a problem even with some of the hotter oils. Sometimes I'll come down and put the valor on the feed or like I said why delicate is great grounding oil to just kinda bring bring them into their bodies and then I'll start working and doing the tissue work and at an I mean lemongrass. I didn't mention when that I'll use a lot of times for some of the tendons ligaments ligament support and sometimes that around the knees and ankles and some of those joints in the COPA. Eva is another one of my absolute favorites to us. Expecially around with my clients have joints that might be a little more sore from the aging process and have a great story about a client client. who was kind of disbelievers end? Kabamba was one that district helped her to get a lot of relief. Her hands from the pains that she had on a regular basis So I'll see what my clients are dealing with. I'll put my mic joy over their hearts it or have them apply it to their heart and then maybe sometimes take some oil in my hand and lift him deeply. Breathe it in it just at ask clients kind of what they're doing and then through the years I've done a lot of research. Their knees may be when they come in to see me and and so it's just kind of slow after that and so after fourteen years and the last five years of using the the oils on a regular alert basis. I kind of learned which ones seem to work and so I always ask people what they're dealing with and then either do the research or from your knowledge base go from there and trust your intuition too. That's another thing to know wet. We need personally which kids need. And then I do that with what my clients science need to. So and then just whatever they need go for it. It sounds like with one session. You might use several different oils. You know I think think it like you said it really helps find a massage therapist that knows their oils already does but it never hurts to introduce it and where are you located. Specifically in case any of our listeners happened to be around your area they can come get a massage share share. I stay pretty busy but in other words I don't need any more clients as uh-huh I love helping people and I've created my own course online to teach people that people can learn at home at home with I I have. I have massage minute videos on my. That's where somebody people can really really. I am located in Lexington Kentucky but I have on my website. I have massage minute videos. And they're just silly silly. Some of them are kind of goofy in. But showing you different techniques that you can use to help bring harmony to your own home so highly recommend checking those out simple little techniques. I mean some of them are so basic but could be really beneficial. If you WANNA learn some little massage techniques. Love that all right. We'll share in. This has been fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing in with us today. Let's move onto our closing questions and the first is just give us a glimpse into what your sort of daily self care practices might entail. Absolute silly will thank you again so much for having me. I really have had a lot of fun. So great I think a morning routine is super super beneficial and I love have to get up in the morning and on Mondays and Fridays at home. School my son. He actually goes to a hybrid school where he goes Tuesday Wednesday Thursday but homeschool him on those days so I focus on him in the mornings earnings on those days but typically the other days. I'll get up a walkway listening to either a podcast by your more audible books and and that Kinda gets my mind me in the right mindset so I loved walking listening and then I'll come home. Drink my one cup of coffee and read my Bible and it's usually MCAT. I mean the bulletproof coffee that has MCAT oil and gas in it. And then I tried to get in. I get in at least one day a weightlifting week. Just I need the better shape hyman man the better I can show up for my clients on the table too and I always take my vitamins. Manning's red in the morning and usually put some oils over my heart. Art are on the back of my neck to to start my day and then I also started a gratitude journal. I think it's important to do that in the morning. And in the evening to be grateful full for everything and then a Lotta Times four to five days a week at the end of the day. My amazing has been will give me a thorough of all. We Sweet Hubby love it. Yeah well Sharon last question. What's just one thing we should all ditch completely replace a something healthier today?

Gosh twenty five years. We were related in distant. Kind of a way for for a bit that we didn't know and not through some marriages and Dr Still Lives. Right there in Grand Perry we. We got to go to Africa back in Hot Tober late. September tell us about that was great tablet. That was a life changing trip. It really was. I mean it's been on my bucket list for my whole life and then but giving to go and Obviously you spent a lot of time over there so having somebody that knew the ropes and being able to go and and do the things that we did and see the The help that you guys are doing for people in Harari in and really all over Zimbabwe and just getting to see the struggles Folks in different parts of the world it just you know we go down to Dominican. We've been down to Central America and stuff but I always knew. Africa had a lot of need. But it's The people there were just so loving. You know big smiles on their face even through adversity and That's always life-changing whenever you get in a situation like that always changes the way you think about things it changes the way you look at life and I know that I'll never be the same after going and coming back home. Yeah it was fun. I mean we got to see not only the office there in Harari. Meet a lot of good people and and see some of the ministry. Were doing there with the Epworth where we went to the people with the disabled disabled children but we got to see Botswana. We got to visit. Namibia Victoria Falls. We we had a great time. It was a fun trip. Got To go with you and your wife to beautiful wise at spend time with Queen Victoria as well as uncle. Pete Donnie fee. We had We had a really good time. Well thanks thanks going. I can't leave. It's been six months since we did that but often either we'll have to do a reunion tour at some point. I think so as soon as this whole Kobe. Nineteen is over with that. We'll be I'm going to be ready to go somewhere. Yeah me and you both travel a lot and as we as we've talked about not having a focus on what our next trip is is is a little bit. That's depressing thing. I have because I'm always ready to go. Yeah Yeah it's disconcerting. When I look usually I look at my American Airlines Go on the web and I've got like eleven trips. Plan now down to zero trips plan so as I don't even know what's happening so it but you know it's also given us time to you know you have spent some time at home with my daughter and my wife and and really we're getting out and I'm communicating with some of my old friends just on because I actually have the time to call people and been doing webinars. Almost every single day doing webinars for dentists around the country just got off on a little while ago head over seven hundred fifty. Dennis Online and So I don't know it's just it's been kind of calming time Everyday tends to run into itself kind of like we were talking about earlier is it's like going to church. You know I just turn on the computer and watch it. It's a little different. Yeah well there's nothing that delineates one day from the other it's it's a little bit I guess you'd say Groundhog Day. For Miller is moving deja Vu all over again. If you will. We'll bruce I think when we're in these situations I I don't i. Don't talk to me ministers. You knew being my in my business. We we get to talk to a lot. I talked to a few today. you really have to live your life whether you're in the dental business or whether you're a dentist or whether your in any business this is an opportunity to really plan think ahead you may be retooling your marketing plan. You may be retooling. Your Business Plan. I know from my dental equipment company. We're even looking at. How do we want to operate differently ahead and this is just an unbelievable time to plan so when you think about what what? Pda's doing productive. Dentist Academy in the business with JAL. Very innovative offer some really cool things for for for coaching in the dental spectrum. But when you see what? You're a dentist for thirty six years and you understand the the dilemmas faced. What do you think is the the first ninety days as a dentist businesses? You're at you're you're not preneurs. You've got businesses. Well what does this next ninety days? Look like and what do you do right now? The country really gets kicked me. Well this is the time if you know if you if you think about your business when you were going to open it maybe it was under construction or maybe they were doing finish out and you're doing all these things to plan how that business which is going to be what systems you're gonNA use what you know how you're going to do everything. Well it's time to reevaluate all those things now because you have the time you're sitting at home. It's time to download stuff are out of your dental software and do a practice by production Practice by procedure production reports. So that you can see Compare this year. To last year's I always look at similar times and because there's times when I just forget to diagnose certain certain things Like a graft when I extract the tooth will go back and look and two years ago I did two hundred grass and then the next year had ten. And there's gotta be a reason so this is a time when you can look at those production by procedure reports and it gets you clarity on what it is you need to do when you go forward the other thing that I would say in productive dentists working with a Lotta Dennis right now. We're tending to move in. We've always gone into offices with coaching. And we've always done those things but we're trying to because it is a new norm right now and we're trying to shift to a more powerful online community so that you can still get people are getting used to getting this education now. Zoom meetings and everything. I think there's ways that we can maybe reduce risk over this next ninety days to you. Know who knows six months I know it's going to be different until there is a vaccine for this but Things are definitely gonNA be different so. Pda is is just trying to move more to that. A communication platform through through the Internet Because we're all Kinda stuck at home and that kind of where we're at. I think when you're talking about PD. Euratom at initially grief from wrong was built around the coaching philosophy and still is but yet at the same time. You're going to have people that you know. I read something the other day. was actually Craig Rochelle's leadership podcast. That he does in Life Church and he said you know. Communicate communicate communicate that you have got to be communicating with your patients with your customers. Your clients whatever business that is just continue to communicate and I think that's where PD really steps in and teaches you how to effectively communicate with your patients and letting them know where you're at what's available. What procedures. You're putting places. Well yeah I believe so and something you and I have talked about but it's about the next ninety days. I think the way we do things in. You're going to be different and one thing that I think would be amazing. Marketing tool would be. How am I stabilizing my office differently? I used to because they're right. I I have seen From from ultraviolet light sterilization steam sterilization Ozone sterilization I think as a You know having your dental equipment company I mean I think that could be a great opportunity in the future. Because at differentiates my practice from anybody else and I've actually been researching all these different things to come up with. How could I turn a room in a short period of time but yet be assured that I'm taking virus out of the air and cleaning all the surfaces and so that may be a whole new business opportunity for dentistry? Well I it's funny Bruce I saw something recently And it made me think of the Middle Office and just the journey was and they've had them around. But it's these these cell phone. Ultraviolet sterilization cases. So you can pop it open. Throw your cell phone in there. And I don't know a couple of minutes it comes out and no ninety nine percent you think about that in a dental office with the opportunity to to people to see that in an office or just a business as business owner happiness. So yeah what are we going to do those next ninety days. That differentiates ourselves To build that that customer that patient trust for how are operating business. Yeah and there's going to be a significant amount of pent up demand you know so when we open what I also tell people and this is what we teach. Pda BE BE INTENTIONAL. When you're setting your schedule meaning people who need dentistry that have revenue associated with it. There's no such thing as an emergency. Buckle pit or AM I. This person has one filling. You're not going to want to get that patient in the first week or two. What you're GONNA do is you're GonNa Kinda load your practice with things. Because the average Denison the country produces about four hundred and twenty five an hour. Which you're going to want to intentionally produce I'm just GONNA use an example nine hundred eight hundred nine hundred thousand hours. Is it possible to do absolutely because you're getting to now start from scratch setting up your appointments exactly where you want them so that you can be productive those days? You'll still have time for emergencies. So have time for those things but you really want to take care when you get started. You're going to have a little bit. It's going to be. I think disturbance techniques. I think it's GonNa take longer for us to do appointments because of certain things we're having new between patients so it's really imperative in that first sixty days that you start practising again to make sure that your schedule is loaded with productive procedures and anything. That's non-productive unless it's an emergency can be pushed to to a time. When you know set goals set exactly where you want to be. Where have you been and how do I want to set my new practice With my new production numbers because my goal in opening up reopening the practice would be by the end of December. I actually want to have the same productivity I had last year. I'm not looking for eight percent growth. We've gotten every year but I WANNA I WANNA get back to where we were. I I tell a story I lost an associate years ago. He laughed took several employees and opened up down the street and I didn't know anything about it and he was a good producer was probably producing a million a year on his out. Well within three months we were. We had not only because my team was so focused. We actually covered all of his production and with less with six less employees plus less him and we were able to focus. And these are the kind of things that when it changes your focus that's what You know the covert Nineteenth. That changes your focus when you go back. GimMe Your yes. We WanNa take care of patients and I only have two goals. One is to take great care my patient. The other is to reach my goals. So now's the time to set some goals that would put you at the end of the year. And you know maybe maybe this stretches longer maybe that becomes not not possible. But I'd much rather have it in my mind inhabits set down on paper to know where I'm headed so bruce. I know this is a time. Where a lot of people are you know? They're they're reducing their expenses Mo. Most dental offices have had to lay off most of their employees at least for a temporary time until they can get back open because again most places. It's they're seeing emergencies. Only and there's just not a lot of production going on is what is what is. Pda productive dentist. Academy is this a good time to be looking at you? Mentioned about the production per hour had numerous conversations about this about how to you know people are at the four twenty five and having them to the nine fifty and I've been to one of your seminars and just amaze scheduling process is this an opportune time to get on board and to learn those processes and procedures now so you can Europe as you go back. Well it definitely is and we're trying to you know from the Productive Dentist Academy What we're trying to do is make it to where it's fairly simple and not real expensive for the next ninety days we're we're looking at maybe doing some online training for you know instead of paying for full coaching. Maybe it's a few hundred bucks a month so that people could could get enrolled in something that's not overly crazy as far as cost wise and and then get them get them ready for this opening getting them ready and I think we're going to be doing is doing some type of a Webinar series that I'll do every week between. It may start next week week after where it'll be a few hundred bucks a month and but you have total access to our entire team. Well I think that's neat again. No you Bruce and you you definitely sure everybody wants to make a living. Everybody wants to make a profit but one thing I noticed you care about your your patients and you care about your customers and I think that's really cool that Thinking ahead about I'm sure no obligation you can get on here. Listen these webinars. Learn some of the systems. Cover the overhead and the cost of keeping your staff on and your time and really learn how you can be better at because there's going to be obstacles over the next ninety days as as we all get going back into we can can can spool up bruce a coup- couple of your other businesses that you're involved in a compassionate finance as well as the Bella you and I had a couple of conversations about Abella with would you explain that business a little bit because interestingly enough. You're in a position where you can help some some some dental offices in some practices right now having a little bit about what you were talking about a balanced about what you're doing. Well a bell is basically an account receivable and we're able to go in if you're if you're using a Bella we turn it on and we're able to go into your software. We work with ninety five percent of all the software. That's out there. But we go in pull the data and instead of sending outdated statements and putting stamps which people don't even follow what we do. Is we reach out to an entire system. And it's a portal that starts to communicate with patients through email and through text messages We have had an and it really eight percent. A patient said they really wanted a different way of pay. And it's the old days you know. Every dental office usually has one person does insurance and does accounts receivable they spend eighty three percent of their time talking to insurance companies and on hold with insurance companies seventeen percent of the time they spend collecting and unfortunately they run the same report and they always start at the top that the highest balance and they work their way down and then something confuses them or somebody comes in and ask a question and the truth is when you're when you're trying to call people they know it's you and they may or may not know they. Oh they probably do and they're just not going to answer so it's a very inefficient outdated way of collecting money. What Abella does it sends these text messages. It's branded for your individual practice in it says. Hey just want to let you know you. Oh whatever eighty three dollars I call us or you can go on here to see your invoice so they actually get to see the invoiced through online through online presence with their phone and if they they can pay through the phone right then with credit card eight Jessica they can almost anything to pay or they set up. A PAYMENT PLAN. Zero Percent Headdress. I we had one person out. Thirty five hundred bucks and they decided. I'm going to pay one hundred dollars a month for we've been trying to get them for three and a half years we we actually collect. Abella collects fifty. Three percent of over ninety over ninety is usually just something that's waiting to get turned over to the collection agency which they never collect are very little but this is we start with thirty sixty ninety one twenty but we started when we first started the company. Let's just try it on the over ninety. See how that works. And now it's ingrained into everything that we do so You know usually we've had a thousand dollar setup you know when Matt is to put your logo on everything and do everything. And we've waived that entirely. We're not for this neck till July first and we also charged to ninety nine a month so we don't take a piece of the collect do working with several large medical groups. I'm talking that have hundreds of millions of dollars in over ninety and we're working with them and we actually with taking a small piece but with dentistry to ninety nine a month there's no other fees associated with it but we're waving that also so it really doesn't cost you anything to to get involved for the next ninety days in July. I is that kind of day that you have to make a decision but at that point you can say. Hey Bruce it's been great. We really like it. But there's just no way I can sign up for this to ninety nine a month or you're GonNa say I love this and we're going to keep doing it and that's fine too but my goal is all of our. All of our employees are laid off. You know many are not. They're not even doing collections. Well this Oughta make your collections and you might collect thirty forty fifty thousand dollars over the next three months maybe even more with no human interaction literate. I what is the? What is the amount that most the average dental office has in the past been there? What what would that probably be? Everybody's different. I think that you're probably looking guy used to say you know if you had if you had an accounts receivable of two times your monthly production that used to be what was good and then some consultants said Oh. No you don't want to have that much which means you limit your financial options. And then there's others said you could have one and a half times or two so if you're doing one hundred thousand a month it's not unusual to have two hundred thousand and a are now a big portion of that gets shoved out to ninety and one twenty almost becomes uncollectable. So just the thought process at work collecting fifty three percent just blows my mind so if you're talking about a practice look what an opportune time. Right if you're if you're in a practice you're not producing anything right now. Let's just say on the low side you have one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. That's that's out there in in past dues there's some automated things they can put into place right now. They could create some cash flow over the next thirty to sixty days. No question when we did ours. In our office we collected seventy seven thousand twenty eight days. We have a big practice. Five million dollars in revenue but we clicked seventy seven thousand in twenty eight days that I thought was gone. Most of this most of this was a year old. But and what what you'll also find is. You may get a lot of phone calls. I didn't know I owed this. And the reason they don't know because no one's ever really call them. This is a balance of thirty one dollars. And you're you're a person is not gonNA make a phone call for thirty one. They probably won't make a phone call for one hundred or one hundred fifty. They're calling the bigger cases that Oh you money and they never get around to the small. They always say well when the patient comes in. We'll get it. But that never had outs and those. Little numbers accumulating student into big. Never so that's where a Bella is A. I mean it's a no brainer. You could send you can send an email if you have an interest to info at Abella A. B. E. L. L. A. A. R. DOT COM. And you can send an email saying hey. I'm really interested in if you are and then they'll get with you. We now have backlogged as I've been doing webinars this week and last week and we have about two hundred sixty offices. That are already opting in to do this. So wow sooner you can do it the faster you'll get integrated it takes about fifteen minutes. It goes into your software doesn't automated and I think you'll find this amazing and so you're waving the thousand dollar sign on the and you're waving the two hundred nineteen correct Yup. It's free till just chill. I I there is no boss and April May June. You got three months to to use this and then decided to drop worry after that. And and and that's what I wanted to do because I know people are suffering on their freaking out. They don't know what to do and to me. It's it's not a one off deal for us. We know that a lot of these customers will continue to use this and it's a great thing for us but also it's the right thing to do now is that's the way we look at. Hey might not be the first time in your career that people are hoping they have a big past due accounts receivable. They can collect sign rats. Now I know what you're that's funny because if you look at the other company you look at Compassionate Finance and it's it's actually a brand underneath comprehensive finance. We have a balance and we have compassionate finance but compassionate finances doing your own in house financing. And you know we handle all the collections. We handle all that but very interesting week. We'VE BEEN FOR NINE YEARS. And we've got dachshund bringing in thirty five forty thousand a month on work. They did two years ago. And that's with interest and So they're that that's how to recession proof. Your practice is to set what we what you and I would call evergreen revenue money coming in after the fact and we always recommend you get a down payment to cover your heart cost your basic part boss but other than that. We'll do a lot of financing and we could someday do program on that if you want to do just exactly what it is but you could go to. Info AT COMPASSIONATE FINANCE DOT COM. And just tell them hey. I'd like to get some more information about this. We have tons of videos about what it is and explains it in a much more detailed online. So it's compassionate finance dot com and Abella DOT COM. So just so. They want information they could just send info at Abella. A are receivable DOT COM dot com. Okay it's funny. You mentioned that you know with our support. Dds services are insourcing outsourcing. Their in applicant. Would you visited we? Have we have so many people that that that discuss the calls that people don't WanNa make it? Is those insurance verification. It is the follow up to the insurance. But it's those collections. Because you know they look down a list and suzy's been working in your office and she gets down. And there's there's a there's j w Oliver's name He's owed a thousand dollars and they know man. He's really read on the phone. I don't like calling him so they just skipping rack. And they're gonNA they're gonNA ask him and then they're going to skip the one thirty one dollars so we know they're busy so I think there's ways in which you can utilize Services that that you've got there to do that again as as we. That's one of the things we're discussing is is how can utilize some of our insourcing outsourcing opportunities where you can have a full-time person helping you with these tasks for twenty five thirty percent of the cost and as you know you all are using some of those personnel and absolutely obviously. I work with. Yeah I mean it's been amazing for us at PDA and so for us. I mean it's it's you know it's an opportunity to help patients You know everybody's fighting for the the top thirty percent who supposedly have money. Nobody's helping. Nobody's helping the rest of the patients. They don't have good financial options. You know. I believe that you're GONNA have to have new financial arrangements new financial options available for patients because things are going to change. And that's what really brought on compassionate finance when I started it was After away I saw patients even with cash. They weren't using it. And how do we get the dentistry down? And so there's lots of different ways you can utilize it but these are two products that I'm I'm very proud of and that we've you know we've been growing you know exponentially over the last really. The last eighteen months to two years It's finally starting to hit mainstream. And that's what what about Bruce you to sum it up there. You really got a lot of opportunities. You've got your product identified. Kademi which can help people plan and get themselves into a position. Takes them learn how to increase your hourly production. Learn how to do your scheduling. I could do that now. You've got the Abella. Aarp DOT COM. Which would be perfect in this limited or no Kaslo if you will on time where where you can recoup some of that to help you limp along until you're able to operate efficiently and then goodness now when you get back into business people are going to be talking to your cash so the opportunities to even the guy with thirty thousand dollars twenty thousand dollars in cash for that big case you may want to hang onto that. Willard do that over a long period of time so I think your your businesses got a lot of a lot of potential to help people in a lot of ways yet one of the things with compassion and that has been a fifteen hundred dollar. Set the Because there's a little bit more to it but truthfully we've way that also on its one ninety nine a month And we're not charging that until you actually do training so my suggestion Kinda like with the P P P loan you WanNa get it but you don't WanNa get too soon you could get You can get passionate finance and do your training the week before you're planning on opening that gives you the opportunity to help a massive number of patients that you could sign up for compassionate finance now not pay anything and then you're one ninety nine a month would start when you did your training which let's just say that's may fifteenth gotTa will start at that point. That's right and that that's the way we wanted to do it again. So that during this time you've got people at home you've got people so do the training figure it out and now you're gonna hit the ground running when the time when time is right you'll be ready to go. We'll bruce Like I said I try to keep these people. Listen LISTEN TO IT. Little Short soundbite. You've got some amazing companies. But I got three little. I got three little questions for you. Wrote these now just for you. So so. What's the best place visited in the last twelve months and I know you've taken a bunch of trips that give me your top place to visit Africa. No doubt while Africa was the best. Although I've been Australia New Zealand Hawaii Hawaii I loved Australia. I Love New Zealand but Africa was the most life changing trip It was amazing Jack. Great People at Clemmie any good book any good movie that you watch recently you say. Hey your top your list. Well it's kind of funny. I've been what we've been watching a lot of net flicks. So we're we'll share. We're watching what's the name of it? Outweigh outlander slanders. And it's on. It's on Netflix. And about a scotch. Irish are Scott Scottish. Dude like me and my wife English and it's about an English lady and it's a great story at eleven. I mean it's just been a lot of fun. I put that on my list. I'm watching more Netflix than I've ever watched before this. This one just hits hits us between the eyes because you know the Scots stubborn guy and you know it fits are both personalities. Pretty Darn close so see. You're lousy you're laughing at each other when you watch this. We really are. We're having a ball watching it if you if you if you put everything You know they'll say the last four to five years what's the best lesson you learn or or maybe something you've accomplished that stands out and say. I'm proud of. I'm proud of something that's happened or I've done in the last few years you know. I think I'm what I've realized a lot in this last few years. That life is so short and I. That's what I hung up the hand piece Eleven months ago. I'm still acted with lots of my other companies and everything else. I'm not retired but I just realized I lost a close friend that was younger than me to cancer and and a couple other golfing buddies that have passed away and so all of a sudden you realize that you know every day is a gift from God and I WanNa make it as as great a day as I can I think I've You know when you lose friends. It's easy to be depressed but it's also a time to do some self reflection and look at things and say you know My sister just started her own blog. And it's called the the final third because you know she's younger than I am but she just retired. She's dermatologist and she's sixty one or sixty two so. She said she's planning her next third of show make it Her last third and I hope she goes. But I don't know just being able to reflect and do a lot of self reflection of things that not only I have enjoyed in my life and I'm so thankful for but the new things and hopefully that'll continue blessed with good health and and my plan is to continue to help other dentists and help other people in any ways that I can When where there's a need there's always an opportunity and so that that that's I. I think I'm most proud of just my ability to be able to self reflect and say you know I think the future holds some great promise and there's a lot of fun things that we're going to do and of course that's good Lord William Amen.
