"The second thing is you need purpose. The business is bigger than the bottom line. It needs to have some meaning to it more than just cranking out dollars. The third driver is the people driver. Building a unified team is the key to winning in business. Getting the thoroughbreds in the building and getting the donkeys out. Trying to keep the donkeys from getting in in the first place. The hiring process because no one ever won The Kentucky Derby with a donkey. I'll just tell you. So you need thoroughbreds. This is what it is. And by the way, they're less drama. And they're more, they're less selfish. Than donkeys. And they're less stubborn, literally, for real. So people people people people, we spend a lot of our bandwidth on people in business. We've talked about that earlier. The fourth one is plan. You have to have a plan. No one wins by accident, randomly. And then that leads you into developing your product. If you start with product and you're not, you ain't got your act together, you don't have the right people, the purpose and the plan, your product's going to suck. And people do this all the time. They go, I got this great idea. But you don't know how to find your butt with both hands. So, you know, you really need to you really can't just take a great idea to market. You have to have some business acumen. You have to have some people skills. You have to be able to do this. People say all the time. I've got a great idea. I want to bring in. Listen, dude, I don't need any more great ideas. What I need is great people that can implement ideas. Ideas are a dime a dozen. People who get crap done, they're not easy to find. Ideas are everywhere. Profit, profit is the natural byproduct of having done all these other things. If you open your business to make a profit only, and that is your sole goal, you're going to go out of business. You got to be serving your team, you got to be serving your customer and the byproduct, the natural thing that occurs is profit. As my friend rabbi Daniel lappin says, if you serve people well, they will give you certificates of appreciation with president's faces on them. And then as you go around these 6 drivers of business, personal purpose people plan product and profit, you will cycle through those and each time you do, you will get more sophisticated and more layers to each one as you walk through the 5 stages of business. The first stage is the treadmill operator too much of the business relies on you. You're a startup. You're a one person two person three person show. If you don't go to work, there is no work. That's how we all start, but if you stay there, you stay on a treadmill. If you want to level up, you got to get some of the business results that are generated without you. And that takes you to the pathfinder level. In the pathfinder level, your problem is you lack clear direction. If you want to level up and get out a pathfinder and move on, your team has to be engaged in a shared direction. That's where plan kicks in big time. And then once the team is all, we literally have got the ducks in a row. We literally are all heading towards the same goal. It's a stated vision, then we level up. We become a trailblazer. Now, trailblazers is where sometimes you lack the leaders and you lack the detailed plan to scale your business. There's a lot of stuff happening at the trailblazer level, but there's a lot of chaos too. It's reactionary, it's not intentional. There's bottlenecks. There's not enough systems and processes. There's not enough vision and strategy. Man, I remember that. It's kind of a fun time, actually. But it's not sustainable. It will kill you. So if you want to scale up on that, you've got to have leadership team that's executing a plan, executing processes, a systems that scaling the business and it doesn't require you to check on every little detail anymore. Because not only are the team doing what they're supposed to do, the leadership team knows what they're supposed to be doing. And they're holding them accountable, and pushing that on. That takes you to peak performer. Now your business is rocking and rolling. And you got to be careful, it can become too comfortable. And the way to fix that is you and your team have a relentless culture of excellence, a relentless culture of getting better. And then you level up and you go to legacy builder and you develop a succession plan in the legacy builder. We're at the legacy builder stage now, but we still work the 6 drivers all the time here at Ramsey. And you do too if you want to win. So that's the entree leadership framework. The 6 drivers and the 5 stages. The 6 drivers take you up through the 5 stages and it will change everything in the process once you recognize where you are and what you've got to do in the 6 drivers to level up and go to the next stage. And it's not necessarily about how much money it's not necessarily about how large your team is, although we traditionally see money get bigger, team get bigger as you move up through these stages. That's not unusual at all. All right, up next is going to be Dave in Canada. Hi, Dave. Welcome to the entree leadership podcast. How can I help? Hey, Dave. So I lead a team of about 8 loss, including my wife and I and I'm in residential construction, framing services to be exact and my question is, how do I get my contractors to pay their bills on time? Your framing a house in the general contractor is not paying you properly. Yeah, basically. So what happened, I used to I used to not have a due date. So finally, I didn't know exactly when to ask them.

"Hey. So my question is, so I work for the government, state government. And I just kind of I'm a middle manager. And I was just kind of wanting some advice on how to treat that business. Like my own, but it's not mine. And so kind of how do you treat someone else's business like your own? And I thought it would be a good one to ask for that. Okay, I'll give it a shot. It'd be a lot easier for me to answer that in my head if it wasn't the government, but we'll still try to try to think it through here. I think it comes down to the, you know, you're attitude, the way you're leaning in, the way you're viewing it, we're gonna trade each decision like I own the place. And there are several pieces of literature out there that indicate that that's going to cause you to be excellent at your position. It's going to cause you to be noticed by not only your current employer, but by also possible future employers that might steal you because you're so stinking valuable and adding value. Now, one of the pieces of literature is Seth godin, one of the best marketing minds on the planet is a friend of mine. He says to me, his favorite book ever wrote was not about marketing. It was about your question. It's called linchpin. And if you know what a linchpin is, if you've ever messed around out in the country where the tractor or a piece of construction equipment, it's the pin that drops through and it usually has a little clip on it that flips around, holds it in place. And it's the thing that allows you to tow something. It allows something to work that otherwise wouldn't work. And so without the linchpin and everything doesn't function the way it's supposed to. So you need to become a lynchpin is the essence the thesis of his whole book. And it's worth reading because it's about managing up. Is what it's all about. The second person that talks about that a lot is another good friend, rabbi Daniel lappin, who wrote the book thou shall prosper where he talks about reasons that people in the Jewish community have prospered over the scope of time. Inordinately, prospered. And one of the things is they view themselves as self employed wherever they are. If I work for someone else, I'm self employed with one customer. The company I work for. And I need to make that customer happy. I need to provide customer service. I need to add value to that customer's life to their business to an ROI. And so in that sense, if you're self employed here, one way of looking at it, one way of being a linchpin, one way of adopting that very positive Jewish mindset is to say, okay, I'm going to treat this place like I own it. I'm going to treat it like I'm self employed. I'm going to treat it like I'm a linchpin, and if I don't do everything that I'm supposed to do with excellence, and if I don't assist people laterally, up the chain of command down the chain of command, do their jobs better. If I don't help everyone around me, look better because of my excellence and because of my assistance because I'm adding value, then I've not performed as a linchpin, and I've not treated this place like I own it. So around here at Ramsey, one of our core values is that we want our team members to adopt the idea that we're all self employed. And we use all kinds of illustrations for that. If you were self employed and you're walking through the parking lot and there was a piece of paper trash, a potato chip bag laying next to a car, you would stop and pick it up and throw it away. If you own the building and you own the company, if you are an employee mindset, you'd walk past and go, gosh. Hope maintenance sees that. Right? Yeah, I understand. Yeah. And so that's what you're looking for here. And obviously that's beyond your job description, but when you're self employed, it's not beyond your job description because everything is your job. My job is to make sure this organization accomplishes its goals has a vision moves forward and with excellence in every freaking detail. And I'm going to pound it until it does that. And so if you own it, that's what you would be doing. And it's a little harder emotionally to get your head around that if we're talking about owning the state, but. You can look at just the organization that you're within. Whatever the, I guess, the department that you're within. The area, and you say, all right, all the way up to the governor, and all the way down to the entry level position in this department, the game and fish department, or whatever it is I'm in, I'm going to do everything I can to help everyone involved as if I owned the places. If I ran the whole thing, I'm not going to overstep my bounds. I can't go bossing somebody around that I'm not in charge of, but I'm going to help everybody be better. I'm going to serve and I'm going to bring an eye of excellence at an eye of caring, meaning I care. I guess that's the big difference is when you own the place you care. When you don't own the place, emotionally, you don't care. And you go, gosh, I wish somebody would figure that out. Instead, you go, God, I got to fix this. This is not okay. And so does that make any sense? That's the only way I know how to get at this. It makes perfect sense, yeah. What department are you in at your state?

The first recipes for whipped cream date back to 1549 when they used a willow branch to beat the cream into snow milk. This technique lasted for the next few centuries until a clothing salesman from St. Louis changed all of that. During World War II, when cream was rationed, Aaron bunny lappin began peddling stay whip. A substitute made of light cream and vegetable oil. Then in 1946, crown cork and seal company made the first seamless aerosol canister.

Even if a book is used as the basis for a film, the screenwriter still needs to adopt the storyline, so it works on the big screen. Unless you sit through the credits, you probably won't know who wrote the screenplays for your favorite blockbusters. This is your chance to start noticing these architects of entertainment. For homework, you can check out Hitchcock's 1963 classic the birds, which is also creepy fun for national bird day.

"A bun. Hashtag break the bun. Another great scene is when Michael leads Ryan down into the warehouse. There's that great quote. He's managing by walking around. Oh, yes. That would be in his book how I manage. Michael Scott's book, how I manage. Here's a little trivia. So the first time we go down into the warehouse. Yeah, yeah. And this episode we were filming in Culver City. So those stairs actually were real. They actually existed. We filmed in an actual building that was an old company. These offices were on the second floor of that building too. That's right. And so you go down the stairs to the warehouse. But in years later, they recreated the whole office in a different location on a soundstage, and those stairs still existed, but they led nowhere that was a tiny, tiny closet about three feet wide, and you would hide in the tiny closet, and then on cue, you would open the door and walk out. So there were many times when the you would either be up there by yourself in the tiny closet or you'd be up there like one time I was up there with Oscar and Kevin, and there's not a lot of space up there. And we just tucked in that little closet for about 20 minutes until our characters came in the scene. But this was where we were really using this real warehouse in this real space. And there are some shots outside where you can tell that it's not the same place as seasons later. I know, I know. There's some things they couldn't cover. That's fun for the super nerd. Okay, well, I think we should play this clip of Michael introducing Ryan to Craig Robinson, who plays Daryl, the manager of the warehouse. This is one of my favorite introductions of a character on the office because ever. The sort of journey that his name takes with Michael of how Michael comes up with this nickname for him is so ridiculous and Craig Robinson does such a great job in the scene of just throwing it away. He's so amazing. All right, we should watch it. We'll discuss. And here we have midday rajas neighborhood. Come on over here. Hey, this is Ryan. He's tamping upstairs. And it's the farm and mitten rajas. It's not my real name. No. It's Daryl, Daryl is mita rajas. Daryl Rogers. They'll philbin in Regis and reach and roger. The litter Rogers. What is the amazing history? How many years has Michael been calling him by not his name? I know of Daryl. I know. It's so good. It's so good. And you're so sweet and Michael's brain how he got there. Oh, Regis Philbin. Raj, mister rajas. So ridiculous and totally works. And I have to wonder, this is like when I would love to do a dial in phone call, but to call Mike sure because Mike schur was one of our writers on the show, and he is married to JJ philbin, JJ philbin's dad is Regis. Oh. And I know Greg had told me that some of the people's names were formations of different people who had family and stuff on the show. Well, you know, Jim halpert is Greg's friend, Jim held. Yes. His name is his first and last name, and Greg asked him permission to use his name and the guy was like, oh yeah, sure, it's no big deal. He came to set one day. I was like, yeah, no big deal. 9 years later, it was kind of a big deal. And he would call places and be like, Jim helper. Okay, right. I know, and Anna, Phyllis lapin, Phyllis last name lap and lappin is the last name of a friend of Gregg's as well. And so I have to think that Daryl philbin was maybe Mike Scherzer. To his father. His father in law, his wife's side of the family, but then became this great runner for Michael Scott, which is so great. It's so good..

A graduate of Japan's most prestigious university, she holds a high profile job that many envy. But unlike her friends, she goes back to her parents' house every weekend instead of hanging out with them, Mom because she needs to help look after her father, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and dementia 10 years ago. From the moment he wakes up until he goes to bed. He needs our help from walking, getting changed, brushing teeth washing face eating until he goes to daycare. When I was at university, he got fired because of his illness, So we felt insecure financially. But I also wanted to enjoy my university life. I was so worried about the future. But I didn't feel comfortable telling anybody that was really tough. According to the Japanese government, 5 to 6% of high school students look after a family member in Japan.

We received the actual items like diapers, which helps us indirectly but because we don't get money directly. My mom had to work full time until 1.5 years ago.

David Lappin on Sharpening His Poker Skills
"Have you been playing. A ton of poker certainly played more online poker in the last year than i did in the last couple of years. But that's mainly down to just having the the no travel time and the no live poker time. I sort of settled into free days a week. I just play Sunday monday and thursdays. Or sometimes i flick in a saturday. And then the occasional extra day off. But that's pretty rare and then by twice a year when you have a big series.

"Predicted the rise of Islamic state. And where it would establish a caliphate in his book. The virtual caliphate published nearly a decade ago. It's Yaacov Lapeyton military affairs correspondent and analyst research. Associate Bagan sit at center for research studies at Bar. Ilan University and in House analyst with the Miriam Institute. And it's with thanks to Chief Executive Sergeant Benjamin Anthony for making our introduction in nineteen twenty four the last caliphate. An Islamic state as envisioned by the Koran was dismantled in Turkey but in twenty eleven the virtual caliphate outlined an Islamic state that already exist on computer servers around the world used by Islamists to carry out functions typically reserved for physical state like creating training camps mapping out to states constitution and drafting tax laws. His book predicted how Islamists equipped with twenty first century technology to achieve as Seventh-century Vision would upload the virtual caliphate into the physical world. You predicted I. S I did and I even humbly. I predicted that they would establish it in either Iraq or any area where they would find a failure of state sovereignty. I didn't foresee Syria. But I certainly saw the crescent of Iraq area has a place where he's Law mcstay could upload it's vision and absolutely we have seen this transition from the online jihadist world into the physical off-line territorial world you've seen this vision being uploaded and then destroyed by a coalition of Western countries. I look at contemporary history around the world. I'm looking at that terrible attack on this for non-christians is not the same. Inspired idea that they are testing the Buddhist majority in Sri Lanka the Muslims there or are they sending another message is one hundred percent of the same ideology. Salafi Jihadists Salafi jihadists believe that they are in a state of war with the entire world. Where anywhere that does not fall in line with their fundamentalist a vision of how state should be run which is the most extreme of adherence to Islamic law They consider themselves to be municipal war with that place. It doesn't matter if it's an Arab Muslim country that's not religious with them. A Christian country a secular country where Buddhists country and the terrorist cell to carry out this relaxed bombings is perhaps the same Salafi Jihadist ideology that gave birth to al Qaeda and two Islamic. State's Yaacov as you develop these ideas through your research. What extraordinary developments have you found? Well when I was researching the virtual caliphate book which was as you point out approximately a decade ago. I was amazed by first of all how accessible this online activity was was an English. I was being exposed to English. Recruitment chat rooms where a senior Islamist jihadist figures were basically bringing me in British Muslims into their way of thinking and I was alarmed by this by published articles in the times when I was exposing this activity and it also makes me about how how easy it was to get into these foreign taxable. This entire world was these days. I know that things have changed very much so I'm not active in this line of research anymore. But I'm well aware that these chat rooms are encrypted. They're very difficult to enter and they've lowered their profiles so the activities still very much going on very much danger to international security much harder for people who are looking for to find it and get into these four without being spotted by therefore managers now since he wrote the book. We have seen the rise of Islamic state in Iraq and Syria than subsequent defeat and the consequential mass migration of refugees into Europe which has changed the politics of Europe is the gap between the people and their governments in the West bigger than ever in the West. It's hard for me to comment on because I Expertise does not focus on the West. What I can say about migration and how it's going to change Middle Eastern migration to the West. And how could change politics is is? This is just one reason why Middle Eastern refugees are pouring into the West. Another reason is say take the Assad regime. The Assad regime is responsible for millions of Syrians. Leaving the state of Syria. And the fact is that most of these people who are who have emigrated from Syria who who escaped conflict there are Sunnis and they're running away because of the coalition of Shiite Alawites who are waging the war in Syria on behalf of us have basically ethically funds them from their homes through mass murderer and war-crimes so what we're seeing here. Sectarian Warfare Creating wave upon wave of refugees from the Middle East and I think that will destabilize To a certain extent the political systems in the West if it repeat itself C. Another wave which I think is quite likely I mean if I said continues. He's about to launch a major offensive in Italy And if that creates another wave of refugees or if Turkey makes good on its threats to open the gates open the floodgates on Syrian refugees and let them travelling to Europe and we'll see this trend
