"Asian descent and it was a a common gathering place during the last year and a half as well in chinatown new york in. I can't help but think that yes. What was around them happening in new york in elsewhere they said wait. We're we are the committee that decides historical landmarks in this great city. We don't even have one. So i i think i don't know So we need more of those around the country. You're here you've contributed you're you're you're accepted. You're part of our history right. That's what those landmarks say. I'm looking forward to march on the mall. That again we come together. This is what we do in this country right. We we march on the mall in washington. Dc and those plans are afoot. I am charged by that. What about a museum. The smithsonian four. Where's the building. Is that possible. Those are some of things. I look forward to say. Okay the opportunity is bigger than ever but are we activating on that opportunity in the doors open or more open in there before but we still got a walk. certainly yes I want to wrap up with one more light hearted question I mean we'll talk was really important in profound topics. Right ended definitely want folks to sink in on that but coming back to your book one. The very pleasant elements of the book is a lot of the humor and jokes that lay back next self deprecating stuff that you shared about yourself and you know such a contrast you perhaps your public persona when you're on cable tv. There's no way you can make these kind of jokes journalist your reporting on some of the most horrible things that happened in our country and our country around the world. And that's what people see a louis as which is perfectly appropriate. But if you read this book and you know. I actually listen to this book on audible so you narrated so i got your voice circling in my head constantly. It's so pleasant to have this humor worth into it and you know you're saying how y'all have professional comedians. Help you write some of this parts of the book. So i guess my question is was the introduction of humor to a lotta these profound heavy topics intentional or is it just an expression of your personality because you are funny when you're off air and so on so forth. What is the reasoning behind that. We've always loved late night. Comedians in my family. So david letterman was always a out a staple my family and we would watch him and it is part of who we are. And we're not necessarily that funny but we thinking my brothers and my sister and my parents It's actually it's actually siblings goof-balls in The part of the humor is i. Hope part of the fabric of what i lived through Because i don't want you know that. That's why i was so intentional. In huge fan of ronnie chang And i was talking with him Ronnie i need help. I like to be funny. But i'm not that good at it And so he gave me some suggestions about who to talk to. And he's a great giving person talk about a selfless person ronnie who's also one of the The folks that wrote a nice blurb fort is one of those great selfless people to and you see bit his standup go all not that. Ronnie appears to be not selfless but he is. Everybody loves him he always giving giving giving and so that injection of humor into the book was definitely what i wanted in is definitely part of the way i like to tell stories and the way i like to write And you're right sometimes when you're writing for for news you wanna put humor in because it just can't not.

"I have felt in the last since we last spoken over the last year where we've seen in in the year since the pandemic started the over sixty six hundred reported on incidents of hate During that time. I have been so inspired by our journalism. Community are asian american pacific outdraws community who have stood up in local places and regional places and national places on tv and riding on social that they were there to record what happened because they understood it. They were living it And they didn't want to report on. This is because they were asian american pacific islander but then they realized because they were asian and asian american pacific islander. They had the experience to really tell the story of the right way. And there were questions of bias. There are questions biased reporting. I should say there questions of Inaccuracies because of of of bias tendencies. But we're all professional journalists in what we were able to bring to. The story was an understanding of the context in the subject matter that not. Nobody really knew so well outside of our community and so i was very interested in the other. Anti asian hate times in our country's history and i thought about the internment of japanese-americans into american interment camps and there is no Journalist of that were api that were out there to to tell the story and the ones being locked up could not tell the story and so the other one that i can never lots of incidents we can go back in history and you know them as well to the eighteen hundreds where there arash you know a mob. Like killings of asians in america lynchings. But it was vincent chin. When we first had a documented reporting of a hate incident vincent chin club with a bat in the street died in. You couldn't i looked at his autopsy photos. His head didn't even look like a human. He was beaten so hard and there was a response and the response back then were from journalists from the bay area from new york in all in other places around the country in the ones. I can think of helen. Zia tawaf chang corky lee who ran to detroit to document the story so we had it on the record and then we had marches if if it was not on record and we wouldn't have marches Probably that's the only time. I believe in our history that we had recording at a civil rights response. There were fifty api journalist. I'm guessing during that time. Forty years ago fifty. We are starting our asian american journalists association convention. As you and i speak right now we have over two thousand members and so when they in the last year and a half now have been telling these stories to to america it. It is them that. I am very proud of of what they did. Because they became. And i saw it on air our saw and writings. They became civil rights reporters when they didn't get into the business civil rights reporters the on the bins to be journalists. But they they like this great evolution. They knew and they went and they did it. You know a lot of times us folks. Don't wanna say i'm asian american. We wanted to say. I'm a journalist but now are saying no. I'm asian-american this way. It is in. This is not right in hurts like that. Was all of our jobs to do to kevin. The last year's been my perspective on our community hasn't changed. What has changed is my pride in the community. And what it's done. Do you think there's more power in the community now than before giving your observation win crimes. In hate crimes reported the automatic default feeling is a sense of powerlessness. Right from people. Because you know you're victim you're being attacked and the tactics senseless in logical and based primarily on stupidity and ignorance. If not something a bit worse yet like you said there are also more or less now out there recording and documenting with professional as not just people with cell phone cameras still. There's certainly a lot of that too. And that's also helpful. Do you think it's generally moving in the right direction. The law of justice bending spending toward justice sort of feeling. I think the opening is bigger than ever four change. The opening the opportunity is bigger than it ever has been as you see industry business leaning in as you see communities of other caller leaning in as you see reporting that is as prevalent accurate in out there and Covering that story before may not have even been covered. Oh that's just a separate small. It's a small community you know i don't know we should probably covers other thing So the opportunity is huge right now. What we what. I'm waiting to see now is if we is if we have the big things happen. That say this community is okay. Then the big things to me are historical landmarks. That recognize the asian american pacific islander contributions to the country over the last three centuries. Where are those new york. Just got its first historical landmark. This year that recognized the asian american community in his history. The first was was it a response to a lot of the things that were happening or i mean it was. It was interestingly not to undermine the importance of it yet you know doesn't undermine at all because it was always important it was. It was a landmark for a soldier.

"I think out of ten fifty one percent fifty one percent right now man but then self less shirt was a seven point one on the best days. It's seven i'll take it. Those those are those are the things you really don't wanna know kevin life. I think you and i can agree. We just want to leave that to not knowing But that was that that measurement that we were able to see it was consistent in our own examples in the from the from the studies that we were using as benchmarks. You can look better. They go there's some. There's some very tangible benefits to volunteering. Folks you look hotter sexier as richard just with his study another question. Wanna ask you to is. Did you know this is another study. You cited related to babies in whether the display selfish tendencies or selfless tendencies. And you know there's all these different interpretation of human nature right and your religion played a big part in your life as well. Different religion has different assumptions about. Are people born good. Are they more in bad. They're born centers. they're born a blank page. Do you think people are born south less or selfish. Now that you've written this book. Yeah because we did the chocolate studying lhasa square the circle study and I believe that we are born both And that we're not born leaning a were born by some studies that we looked at were born tending to be more self police but we do have both qualities In in our in our Based on studies again that we dug into we we have both muscle sets. What happens over time Especially in this time is just become too easy to be selfish. I'm in the very structures and mechanisms Of of modern business have helped us reach that pinnacle of me I have the guide given right of being famous that we all believe that it is something if you went back you know twenty or forty or sixty years. No i think everybody today for the most part every day at not everybody most people in today's age regardless of your age believes you have the right to be famous and that you can be famous and the structures around us have given us the tools to believe that we can both in technology in media In business everything is a round that vary right. We believe that were born with. So i think that is what is left. Pushed us into this idea of a selfish pandemic. because that's always what i can say. I i right. I should in because look. That's all the stuff in the ecosystem says i can but the studies that we were looking at with the with the children of chocolate and the children with a with a animated circle square in a in a triangle which were were really looking at so in in the in the triangle square and circle. There was a there. Were three objects and the they would measure where the eyeballs would go from the child and the eyeballs. It was believed to measure what they prefer always looked. Well not always. The majority of the kids looked at the object that was trying to push the circle up the hill. Not down to try to help it to try to help it. And that is one of the Such than children are born to be self less So yet to answer question. It is both with a tendency to be self less That's actually a very hopeful. Finding you know given the message which spread here is that it coming back to fifty one percent role is not like we're born completely selfless or selfish in any way but if studies so far have shown that at least we had a more self less tendency starting as babies and you know whatever happened happened with society and all that and maybe week like steered into a different direction but back core or that route is still there than maybe. We'll feel a little less intimidated by the fact that hey we can be more selfish because we were kind of born that way anyways working against our in you know in the book talk we do bring up the idea of darwin dawkins and selflessness in selfishness in nature and nurture and it's kind of nice to know that No or not built holy to just watch after ourselves. And that's right another thing. I wanna talk to you about is kind of your reflection on the asian american identity. Broadly speaking but also perhaps your interpretation of it as well a lot of the book surly weaves that thread throughout your entire life so far as well and also now that i know you were writing best from the beginning of the You know throughout the whole period and witnessing reporting on not just the health care problem of the pandemic but also the hate crime particularly against asian-americans that were occurring at a much higher clip than ever before. Certainly you know based on recording and data has your interpretation of understanding of asia. American identity change during this time at all. I mean on the topic of the identity included in to what was to be a a mainstream book if you will Because we are part of the mainstream and but we are stories just aren't heard It's not common even to this day for. I think people understand that. United dad was a pastor from a church in tennessee. Just not i mean it just you. Wouldn't you wouldn't think it and he would travel the tennessee. Every year for the gathering. My first college t shirt was a university of tennessee. Orange t shirt and really and i'm here in california. What am i doing. What are you doing why. Why are you giving me an orange t shirt. Why don't eat orange taste. And it's tennessee onyx and their bass cost of volunteers which may be appropriate in some put gave it to me is very appropriate but it was like i was just strange as a kid and i wanted to share these things about growing up as an american that is also of asian descent. Because it was. I thought it was important. That We we started to understand our communities. 'cause they were misunderstood in heaven misunderstood for so long and you know my father being pushed over five years ago to the ground was during another one for the local waves in the barrier of anti asian hate and it didn't reach the national level that we see now so my view has not.

"I knew that was coming stanford you know. They really dug in on this idea of how we can think. Outside of ourselves to the point of racism and prejudice they lined up hundreds of pairings of people that were so within themselves at that moment at that time that they had prejudices against other people different backgrounds and so they paired him up and had them meet three times and after they measured their societa qualitative and quantitative measurement on the qualitative as a questionnaire of. What do you think of this group. What do you think of you know. People call her baba and then the the quantitative was actually doing a body chemical tests the things europe familiar with stress hormones and and the happy happy hormones as well. Happy chemicals should say in. They measured really high in the beginning. And then after three long meetings they the measurement of prejudice reduced just above zero. And that only took what they were trying to prove. One of the things are trying to prove if we were to reach outside of ourselves think outside of ourselves to people. We think we absolutely disagree with that. We are not at all like that. We can actually start to understand them and start to like them if we just take the time like watering those three plans of just meeting three times for a lunch and that's comes in the chapter three lunches but that's one thing and another idea that you can do If you're thinking about selflessness if you believe in that idea that a muscle tone will allow you to do something more more more readily and more easily like those who were working during the pandemic and still are working doing it. Why is it that they kept on going into the hospitals without the right equipment without understanding with this virus was and with great fear you saw the interviews on tv and you're like what are they doing. They put down the phone after talking to people like me and they go in and go to work and it's because a lot like the hippocratic oath describes. They had to help all people and they wanted to help all people and they had done so for for their entire careers and so in this thing happened. There was no way the majority of them were not going to go to work even though they could be their death sentence. It reminds me since i grew up in san francisco of the aids epidemic and what again nurses and healthcare workers were doing in the city of san francisco on around the world. Another great example of muscle tone. Because that's what they do every day that they knew they had to keep on doing it in the rebel. Do great things. So the idea of Making a decision that might be slightly selfless because we make a conscious decision about every fifteen minutes. If one of those can start to be selfless nature. You're going to buy coffee you pay for the Coffee for the next two people. You just tell the the the the counter staff that you're gonna pay for next to you folks smiling at somebody walking down the street. Could you're looking at them. Then they got a bad attitude. But instead decide i'm gonna smile the perennial question of. Do you give money to a person who is living in the streets. Everybody struggle. So that's another notion. It's another opportunity for us to not think of. Oh i mean some of the things that always go through. Our mind is well. Will the money be used properly Maybe they really don't need it. Maybe they're super superwealthy and they're just asking for money made so much money doing this They don't look like they really need it Whatever the case may be all they screamed at me But the way for that opportunity that can be potentially understood is that it's not a perfect decision and this is really important in. I'll finisher the answer to this question that you ask with with this one in that. We can't have perfect self decisions but we can have one that are mostly self less so if it's fifty one percent in your mind you think it's going to be good for this person in the right thing to do fifty one percent. I'm not saying ninety nine. i'm fifty one. The new give the dollar fifty one percent of you. Just let that other forty nine go and the chapter that we talk about that concept is is ten stones in we dig into marketing metrics and Algorithms that are used to prove the point. But i don't wanna get into too deep here but only to say that it is take ten stones when buckets. Yes bucket when buckets annot bucket when you when you're thinking about those decisions if you put stones in the us bucket over four in the no bucket. You'd do it. Could you know you're moving the ball forward better to do nothing at all. And so those are some of the ideas. I think that we can do. And the way to think about it day to day you can tell i'm not saying go. Raise a million dollars for your favorite community based organization. Oh you can do that but you know. That's not how we gotta do the digestible things everyday. And that kinda gives surpass sometimes if we give ourselves a pass we just have all these crazy goals. We see other wealthy people. Do these things while i'm never going to do that. So the other option is nothing. Where what you're saying. Is that just a simple majority fifty one percent would do to get us to do do something because another thing that you mentioned the book With regard you also citing research to is that there is a selfish aspect to helping people to because we get our dopamine hits as well right and there are studies instead of about like. Oh like the fact that you are buying coffee for the two people behind you at a coffee shop. Yeah that was generous for them and they will be happy about it. I would hope but it also gives you a bit of a positive head. There'd be like hey i'm such an awesome person. It does and we're human. We're not perfect right. We can't be there so you. I often get the question. Well you can never be purely selfless selfless right and Unlike no you can't you cannot be. It's very difficult to be purely selfless so just accept. That's what we are imperfect beings and be satisfied with that simple majority you just brought up And be okay with the fact that they are maybe some selfish element. Even to the reason why i'm doing this selfless thing and that's cool too cool to hey. This book My volunteer work. I know that you know a majority simple-majority is self less. But do i get From from the spoken-word donating all of the author profits to aarp alzheimer's association and asian american journalists association. But i know me even discussing this with you. I'm getting something out of this right. Kevin because now all of a sudden your listeners will now be aware of this book and they'll know there may be where now what i'm saying and and might might recognize the book or me or whatever so i'm getting something out of it too but that shouldn't negate me still wanting to do something like this because it's not purely in one side of the arguments not purely selfless so i can't talk about it. Not true metro. I mean so long as it again. The majority is for the right reason. And that that's really important in the book. You know this We talk about the typical self-help book kind of things which is live longer. Make more money.

"You know we had a scientist a hard. A scientist a researcher a a Syndicated cartoonist Brought in to poets brought in to a late night. Comedic writers To to consult as well to help me. Learn to bring out the All of this because we wanted something that would be like a a nine layer sandwich. You know something. You'll you'll find something in there you'll like and i didn't want it to be a lot of words because i know as a as a broadcast journalist is thinking about the different elements to pull together. So that you when you're watching can really have this stickiness with the story. And so that's why we put in all of those. Those things poets poems. I'm not a good poets. That's why had to get help. A non comedic writer. So that's why i need to get trained all these things and i didn't mind i did not mind at all learning got it so i want to jump into maybe some of the practical stuff i to quote unquote not bear the lead. Maybe what are some of the kind of tricks or practices or workouts that you want people to know if they want to be more self less right to train their selflessness muscle. Which is you know at least one chapter if multiple chapters in your book. You talked about 'cause i think the aspiration is there. You've cited really good surveys of people who wanna do volunteering but though actually follow through or we spend money by the self-help book or to look at models. Like motor are desmond tutu but obviously we don't even take the first step in. I am guilty as charged. One of millennials would think more about volunteering than actually volunteering right. So tell us some of things that we got a with some some intro workouts. Maybe we should start doing yet. That whole concept of muscle tone. I do think you do a lot of stuff that selfless this great podcast being one of those great selfless things that you've done for years now and i know you're being humble About that but this whole idea of wanting to bring on our stories with a very difficult and crowded marketplace is courageous by you an entire team for the podcast and so it is. This is a selfless space. And i can't thank you enough for for doing it. You're crazy but i'm glad you did it it. And that's what it is. What you did is to incorporate servicing and serving a greater community outside yourself when you knew but you're also very curious about right. I mean this is part of the curiosity up. That started the podcast as it would take resource your now one hundred ninety nine episodes holy hannah commitment and we can do that in our careers. We can find the mix of what we call him. The book three plants. Where one part of you informs the other and you need to water them The idea of watering three plants. Is you have a man activity in your life. Might be profession. It might be community. It might be faith. It might be volunteerism. It might be family a be relationship but we often do. We've had this happen to you as we sometimes water. Just one of them And you've had those friends at all of a sudden are calling him a kevin good to see where you been and because they've been in a relationship and they were their main water their main plant was that relationship and then when they broke it off all of a sudden they wanna Out again and that's a great example of you can't do that to friends. Friends take watering cultivation. They are they're not they're just all of a sudden and what is amazing about that idea is at. If let's say the other plans that you water might be community volunteer volunteerism all of these plants. A water informed the other so in your case. Something in your background that you were watering inspired you to start this three years ago something. You had your profession. You knew what you're gonna do but then something and then you put the two together. If you didn't do that other thing it would not have inspired you to start this. So that's one idea. That's from the book in terms of what we can do selflessly. There's a a a study out of stanford that we really dug into despite being stanford go blue. Sorry there's.

"Podcast. Wherever you get your podcast listening that all right without further do here is my interview with richard lewis. Richard louis welcome back to the model majority podcast. Today it's good to be home again. My friend to be home. Thank you so much for spending some more time with us for listeners. Who don't know. Richard one very i. Guess in one of my favorite guests way back in episode twenty six of the model majority podcast go back and listen to that episode after you finish this one but today we are gonna talk about. Mostly your new book called enough about me. That was released earlier this year. And i love to begin with maybe some meta points about the book. I when did you start. Wanting to write this book was before codeine or even during cove. Ed and what is the back story of the book itself. So i didn't know what to write about or when to do it. And so i was talking with my agent and we knew that you know for the last eight years. I've been talking a lot about the issues of taking care of somebody else being a caregiver to because it's a huge issue in america over fifty million people do it no training no pay they take care of a family member. It's worth about half a trillion dollars in value. It's a big big numbers around. But we don't talk about big cultural gap and we were sitting in trying to say well. We know there's a big marketplace for that but at the same time it's not like i'm a caregiver and i take our my dad's not like i am looking for books about that so we're trying to identify what might be something we could talk about in we thought from a journalist's perspective to explore this thing of The selfish pandemic of all this stuff we've been seeing in the last decade of you know hate being cheap in violence being cheap. You know. i've i can't tell you. The number kevin of Mass shootings and mass killings. I've covered of terrorist attacks. That i've covered you know end from a journalist perspective if you seen all the political hate speech all that stuff if from from journalist perspective what what are we living through and My thought was that we were living through a selfish pandemic. And so then what could we do for the at in a big idea book around around the idea of of being self less to offset that but at the same time. That's a little you know above my pay grade There's a lot of my pay grade to do something like that. But from journalist's perspective. I thought i could attack it. And so that's what began right at the end of twenty nineteen the journey to put together a proposal. It so happens that we signed in march of twenty twenty so right when the dow began it was me after. Admit it's would people be be buying books at rates. I mean will. They is books. Just gonna fall by the wayside just like a lot of products out there. Then for the next six months. I accelerated Had a team of ten working with me on this To help me Consultants and things like that. Because i knew. I couldn't do it alone to get the best product out there but i also wanted to get out a book that would be available sooner than later so we we accelerated the process and the schedule because we wanted to show that we wanted to offset the selfish pandemic as early as possum seat. There we have that. I mean you call you call the selfish pandemic before this pandemic really hit us end. Sounds like you were writing about it. As endemic was holding or this health spending was unfolding in front of all our is. How was that. I guess the evil harping to ask questions so just going to let you talk a little bit more i think how was that experience like was it like a in the arm and be like man. I really got to get this project done or is it like holy shit. There's so much going on. Maybe i should you know. Put this delay this until we have clarity on. Just how the world is even going to function. Yeah i mean it was one one of those things because it always sitting in front of my window in my small new york apartment typing away and i could hear the sirens All throughout the day. And i didn't go out much. Food was delivered and the water still came through the spout electricity's still turned on but you heard the sirens every night every day every fifteen or twenty minutes and you knew what that meant and so that was an inspiring part of why felt we needed to do it because i those people were the self less people that we're going to work in those ambulances in those hospitals and they didn't know what was happening they didn't have the right equipment and that's what we need more of and so that was certainly something i've thought about as i was typing away. You know just sitting by my window with my computer and in hearing all of that it was It was for them and it was for all the rest of us to do something a little bit bigger and a little bit smaller outside of ourselves as you know. That's what i say in the book. Is you know it's not like we can all be desmond. Tutu mother theresa. We do small things every day. Little things digestible. Things bite things that get us to be able to be those amazing individuals that are desmond tutu trace in. Whom have you and you know i. It's it's interesting. Because i wrote the book kevin as a self help book because i love self help books business. I'll help books and My old career and business but also knew that we're self-help books. Had gone is like mimi. Mimi love me love me. Love me love me me me me. And that wasn't what we wanted to do. So we but we wanted to show the practicality how you can do it right. That's the great thing about self help books. They show you how to do things and this one would be an anti self self help book in that you would learn little things hopefully along the way if you can just take one thing away from one of the chapters that you can start doing then were on our way to to changing our society and the other part of it. Being partial memoir was an interesting decision because as we were writing the book. I was putting in stories of basically where i goofed up where i was. You know. definitely learning what it meant to to inform me about what a selfless place might be and so in the end we ended up with a part memoir. Anti self self help book. That ain't easy to describe the folks. that's that's kind of what it is. Yeah i mean. I think there's so many threats to this book. A memoir by definition is almost like a me book right like most of the memoirs is about me me me me and there will be nothing wrong with that. Frankly if you had written that book given everything you've done nudging your career spanning from business to journalism which we talked about in our previous episode before you know breaking a bunch of barriers for the asian american community. But also everything that you've done to take care of your father who has disease and also be an advocate for caretakers. That could have been a perfectly of miami book as it is and no one would blame you for writing. That and i guess you still wanted. Don't do something more right and that's me just made it harder on yourself but also much better better book you summarize it really well. I did make it harder on myself and we knew that it was going to be tough to get that sort of hybrid together. But you know i may only write one book entire career and i just wanted to save as much as i could especially given what i was seeing with the selfish pandemic it was it without. We try and look i understand. It's it's dot com to have those sort of mixes in it but that's why also had to bring in the team to help me..

You know there's some other things that happened with Barcelona that you know Kinda soured messy a little. They didn't help him when he though those tax charges came up with his dad and I guess this whole time you know we have a saying in American sports you know. He was basically giving them like the hometown discount because Messi should be making. A lot more money or at least he should have been years ago So I don't know we'll see. But like I said, this is something that's going to be settled in court of law You know in the coronavirus just throws another wrench into the entire thing. Yes. City city is definitely I guess right now. The number one contenders the sign him I also read something. Excuse me. That apparently Neymar trying to get PSG to pursue. MESSI. Barcelona's already messy is not for sale. The only way they messy we'll be able to leave is through this clause in his contract he does have a a release clause in his contract, but the release clause is seven hundred million euros. And I, you know Man City, maybe psg they. They have that money to pay that. But I doubt it I doubt that anybody would pay that much money for you know thirty-three-year-old even though a thirty-three-year-old messy is better than. Ninety. Nine percent of the players in the world right now. But who knows so yeah Man City Psg, those are the teams right now that I guess are seriously taking a look at getting messy. Whether. It happens or not I don't know I would still say right now. with the president of Barcelona Saint. He'll resign keep messy and you know with Lalita siding with Barcelona there is still slight chance that Messi will be. Playing for Barcelona when the season stars I guess you know Ronald Koeman taken over. Wasn't something that you know messy I. Guess he just doesn't want to play under him. They were trained session for the upcoming season This weekend messy didn't show up You know he he is planning on leaving, but you know. If. The court decides that he still under contract I mean he could do a lot of American football players. He could hold out say I'm not GONNA play In. June tenth comes around I. Guess of Twenty Twenty One. He could decide it's time for him to move on. So. hopefully that doesn't happen but because. I wouldn't want to see a a season go on. We're macy's not playing. You know he is still arguably one of the best players in the world definitely top three best players in the world easily. And I think it's Kinda. Funny because this actually kind of helps Neymar to you know he was talking about going back to Barcelona. He was trying to get out of his contract with PSG arsenal is gonNA. Buy 'em they got grease men. And you know. I guess he was still trying to hope you know he could go back but now with Massey's leaving. He can still be the man in Paris.

I realized my personality of Introversion Cana. Would hold me back on on things not where I wanted to, it will get me where I wanna go so I kinda had to push myself. Beyond my comfort zone and learn to network. After I came bonk and. Pursue speaking, and and did all the things that Let, me. you know moved to where I where I am. Yeah Yeah. Scrape now you foam. Ilia! In the air Ginny conscious. That's connects connects actually. My my nephew gave you that idea. It's actually a second half of nineteen. and. Because of Communication You know the role of the purpose of communication is to connect with other people right so I.

Why is it the other? Sit other podcasts with them, which is listening boundaries or anticipated feat that cross country, Cross, cultural communication, positive self talk. So why did he? Go into those areas or Tommy more elaborate, more less sure sure so. Froyer I. Think it was and of two thousand eighteen. I do this as a as a personal rich wall twenty. During Q. For every year, I would sit down. And plan the year ahead so that year I said to myself Oh. What would I like to try you know next year? And I said to myself I left to do some real work. And I think in life once you are taking light. You want you begin to attract or identify the opportunities that you want so It was somebody that I met. In two thousand seventeen. At an event, that was part of the Kennel and she actually is the host of the. Radio and we caught up that year over Christmas and she was. Covering a shift at the radio station and we talked about it was timely. It happened You know it around time of year. Where go setting what Rela, so I went on and become her gas and I did three shows prior to accusation serious. At the end of the third after the third show she said to me, she go You know I'm I'm back at the studio in the fall of twenty, one thousand, nine hundred. Why didn't you pick something like to talk about? Back every, week, So I. You know. I looked at looked at that time at that times, a lot of communications, work and I said. Why do I do I do this? Think of seven topics. It was seven weeks. I think a seven topics and package it and I'll come. Come to the station every week and I'll. Talk on one of them and. because. Of My work with professionals in corporations, and even looking at you know my own development. I thought of some of the things that are often challenging for people shoe, understand or to master. and those. That's how I came up with those topics and the first one just so happen that the first show kicked off during leadership. International Leadership Week so suggested Oh why don't we talk about? Leadership sized great on August. Combine the two and talked about. The importance of leadership skills in leadership, and so that's how that was birth, and the how the whole show was birth. Oh well okay so The other topics, listening boundaries, authenticity, or overlaid so obviously to to. Take Communication Feedback Cross cultural communication which we, we spoke about because.

I felt that I was probably done with Hall and my appearance were also getting up there with age, so I thought okay I'll go. And, I worked throughout the year and a half.

Just to just to get back into the community. Left. Know left it for too long. But that job actually. gave me sharpen my skills for the next chapter. On in two thousand seventeen, I actually decided to come back in two thousand sixteen, I actually had an opportunity to come back to. Deliver a project training for an aviation company and Injuring a chance to. Look at the market again and at a time it was good so I made a decision to come back. Really twenty seventeen and it's been three years. Okay well I mean. We skipped a bit because when you when you actually relocate or you the first time when you decided. Point in life. You. Actually, that's what led you to the work. You're doing now, so tell us about that. You've got to Hong. Kong headed that all that evolve to lead into the wacky doing now I went back to. So so I shared that my first eighteen years in Canada was in corporate administration, so went to university. An ounce shared that. On. de Degree in. Our? In Secretarial Studies, so I had a long standing of administrative career in Canada and then. Period of time. Allowed me to see what my strengths were in communication was something that not only fascinated me, but also it was something that always good at, but then communication. It's a life long journey a dozen stop at eighteen years. I still today, and and still learning so I. I saw that strength to myself and I. I wanted to I. didn't I have no idea what I would come back to in two thousand but. Deep Down I just know that a transfer what I had learned from the West to east begun at that time I. Think I'll. Work Skills or workplace scales. You know the West was still ahead. And I didn't have anything to walk into, but I just knew that somehow. My role. Would be to transfer my knowledge whether it's in teaching or training. Or coasting or mentoring it's in some form of shape in in those roles and I think you know ten years. Ten years after my relocation have tackled. you know I continue to choose like I. You know professional writing. Training did public workshops even at the time. On and off, I have fulltime job, I would still try to do some psychics. Cave that? where I'm now to pave, long journey. You know continue to do. June occasions related work. Yeah!

A great story to to share in them, obviously with your expertise around a communications area show somebody audience to listen to my show lights to pick up on. On some of the tips you could share as well but. Before we begin. I know that you from you actually spent some time in Canada Very Young Age and then you decide to go return back to your roots. And then rely rely Katie Baxter has in Asia which led to do the stop. You're doing now, So I was from Hong Kong. Big Family of. Five siblings and parents I think we you know. I grew up in the sixties and I think I mentioned Call, through the nineteen sixty seven riots, so I do as A. I think in the early Seventies. That was big wave of immigrants. Similar similar to you, know I'll. Pull gone breast in the recent year. Yeah Yeah set off a lot of uncertainty in people's mind. So sixty seven. Sixty seven brides wasn't about China then was. It must have been about also the British climate I think it was yeah. I was a little too young to. Share the history, so you're now. It's very interesting for me to go back to. Some of the documentary and understand that history myself so you know I I in the early seventies see family up rooted at solve to eastern Canada. And I. by the time I came back in two thousand one I spent more time in West that I had in in my birthplace You know at that time. I wanted a change a single mom. I just wanted a change, so I took a year off before moving back. You know got that year that I took off. I wanted to sort out where life was going. Next so and one day. I said Yeah I'll call. I'm going Oh okay. So yourself as a Hong Kong, and did you feel that way in Canada I? Mean because I. Know I'm from Maine, have more of a Caribbean influence without my dad's from Mauritius which is on the Indian. Ocean tropical island on the. Net. East Coast Africa but. Mostly in Britain, there is a strong cultural of Caribbean Community. They saw felt more that from my mom's side. but so for you feel. You had the Hong Kong in Union while he's grown up and Kennedy. Do I mean I feel British. You feel you a Canadian. As? You know it's it's. It's very individual. Question I think I left Kong when it was. Why Young. Thirteen I think I just had. Charles Thirteen, year. you know during my lesson? I was trying to figure out you know which cultured. Whoever's eight more with your? Where do I stood there I? Think you know this is my nineteenth year in Hongkong. Many Westernize Asians who young to. This part of the world and feeling the same way in how? Do I fit in here. Do I would went along. When I came back eighteen years ago, yeah! It took a little bit of adjustment. You know I knew what the local couch was like and I You know it took me a little time. 'cause growing up in the West. It was certain things that. obviously I was more used to house since in in the West, and so that took a little while for me to understand, and I think you constantly understanding culture until you live it and to this day I'm still learning grouch so much about a culture. Right you you. You've got two to three under your belt so. But the thing is. Yeah Yeah, yeah I, mean obviously. and Mauritius for be over a long period of time, maybe a bit longer than since well, the Ni- is. NBA Is. I think. I embody some of the Chinese cultures very much so but I think the way I think. It's definitely more our West on, but being able to you know the eighteen years have have actually. to understand how the local mindset or the Chinese mindset or the Asian mindset. How it operates. That understanding over time. I realized that it's actually very important to us that perspective on the stuff that I do. so typically I go in. Into a corporations and some consulting. Let's say you have an issue with some of your staff and I listened to your story and I would try to Angolan what might be. The Hiccup. Bed. CASSISI disconnect or the. In slide, the team isn't. Placed on a cross cultural mean through cross, cultural issues or just anything communication wise. There's usually an underlying cross cultural element in there Carr's Hong Kong. It's very multicultural. You walk into any. workplace. The team culture. It's quite multicultural. Yeah Yeah! Yeah I say last year thing took a decent and they're actually and the first time I was in two thousand and six with work colleagues that the World Fifi Games there. So It's a small place, but central. If you're in central is like you're in a real buzzing. Culprit. In different to any other big corporate in Singapore Lord New York. So it is now, it's not that really the ace mousy cultural where I stayed was. It wasn't just Hong concrete for standard. It was others not I mean tourism, other people ex passer.
