Is Lara Trump the Future of the Republican Party?
"Where does the republican party go from here. How much do they go back to trump or you know. How much do they kind of. Rebuild this mega faction of the republican party. Going back to lindsey graham. He said that you know richard. Burr obviously is going to be retiring. This just opens up the senate seat for lara trump president trump's daughter in law. So that already kind of laying the groundwork he's saying that she's the future of the republican party. I think that anyone trump in their last name is going to struggle to win office. I think that they will have money and some support but there will also be a lot of opposition even within the party. Sort of even a quiet structural level can make it difficult to run. But i think that The party doesn't know. I think the leadership of the party doesn't know and i think you've got the josh hollies type cruises of the world. Who would be happy to continue in that. Populous trump approach. And then you've got the benz asses and the mitt romney's who want to abandon that and find a new way forward and i think they're really going to be fighting it out over the next. Several years

Masking Herbal Tastes
"Is a really strong indication of the medicinal properties of plant but as we know from a physiological perspective certain taste of herbs especially bidders actually tasting that flavor on. Your tongue is a really important attribute for actually the medicinal virtues being conveyed to the body and so a question came up. Recently in regards to someone may be sweetening up and herb tea with some stevia or some honey and if we added a whole bunch of things to an herbal formula that changes its taste. Is that going to change the medicinal impact of that formula. So that is the topic of discussion for this week's post and hopefully you learn something good from it all right question. Number three is coming from lara. And laura's asking if a patient takes a bitter or pungent herbal tea or concoction for a digestive condition but then adds a bunch of stevia to mass that strong bitter or pungent taste ending up with a t that tastes sweet and not bitter or pungent. Well that somehow dilute intended effect or send the wrong signal. To the brain and oregon's will the tongue and digestive tract receptors registered as sweet and thereby weaken the resulting action. Intended with the originally prescribed herb. That's a really good question. Laura yeah that is a really good question so different. Herbalists are probably going to answer this question. Very differently i would. So i'll do my best to show both sides of the equation. Here i would say more of probably an old school traditional herbalist that really sees the importance of the actual taste of the herbs. Conveying the medicinal influence. Yes adding a whole bunch of stevia to a bitter pungent t and making it sweet and no longer bidder is definitely going to take away from some of the medicinal properties. More of a bio chemically oriented. Herbalists is going to say no. The herbs still have all of their biochemical constituents there and regardless of whether they're actually tasting it as bitter or not. You're still going to get the medicinal effect So which one is true. Well i would say a little bit of both right and it's always me right. I'm always like trying to see both sides of the equation. I don't necessarily think either one is necessarily right or wrong You know. I don't think that the herbs are going to like completely be nullified by making an herbal formula taste sweet. I'm not sure it's going to be quite as strong as it would have been if it was at full bitter potency right so i definitely imagined that it will still have a medicinal effect but i don't think it's going to be quite as strong as it would be if it were full strength. Now that being said. I think your question brings up an important consideration here. Though in regards to client compliance. One of the biggest reasons client doesn't take the herbs that you give them is one because it's too complicated right. We give them way too much all at once and they get overwhelmed and then they don't do any of it or to Taste right there. Just like i can't take this just absolutely tastes awful. It's really hard for me to get down. So i would say herbalist will take that into consideration and try to adjust their protocols to make it more suitable for the client and their lifestyle and what they can actually do and tolerate. I think. I don't think it's great for a clinician to be like well tough shit choke it down. I don't care like you need to take this. I don't really think that works so much. Maybe for some people it does but for most probably not so much so this is where when you're administering a formula to a client. It's really important for you to listen to those things

Fueled By Climate Change, Hurricanes Are Causing Industrial Accidents. Who's Liable?
"So, you just got back from the Gulf coast where you were covering Hurricane Laura. How was your trip? The, hurricane damage was really bad. You know a lot of people down there have lost their homes, which is hard to see. Yeah and just to remind everybody Laura was the one that hit the Texas Louisiana border in August. This storm is clearly roaring. You're reaching that critical moment here. This now joins an elite group. It's in the top ten, a small elite group of the most dangerous hurricanes to ever make landfall into the US residents along the Gulf coast are bracing for potential devastation, Hurricane Lara and that area is so flat. It is so full of petrochemical facilities to their these refineries, a lot of new natural gas infrastructure, their chemical plants that manufacture all sorts of things like plastics and solvents actually even the raw materials for p. p. e., a lot of them are manufactured. Rubber gloves and surgical masks. So so what happened when the hurricane of hit all of that a lot of them shut down and when petrochemical facilities shutdown they usually release a lot of pollution right stuff that can't safely sit in pipes. So it has to be released or burn and preliminary estimates just in Texas showed that more than four million extra pounds of pollution were released. That was actually before the storm even made landfall. But the reason I wanted to talk to you is because one chemical plant caught fire because of the storm that is a look at I ten, which has now been shut down as these plumes of smoke emerged about an hour ago. The governor now is confirming this as a chemical fire has made an emergency crews responded to the inferno at via lab in Lake Charles which manufacturers pull supplies. Okay. So we've we've talked about this on the show before it didn't chemical plant in Texas catch fire after another hurricane Hurricane Harvey. Ago Yes and we talked about it on this very podcast because that fire in Texas started this totally new kind of legal battle, a climate change criminal lawsuit, and I have to say so far there is no indication that this most recent fire will lead to similar litigation but with this really active hurricane season that we're having in the super hot water in the Gulf of Mexico hoping spawn these strong. Storms head right for America's petrochemical centers I thought it might be a good moment to revisit that story and the questions that raises. So this episode, we're going to hear that story. It's a story that asks this question can companies and the people who work for them be held responsible, even sent to prison for failing to adequately prepare for climate change, you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. Okay Becky, take us back to the beginning of this story. So it's a story that happened in twenty seventeen at a chemical plant near Houston Texas, and it's when this major hurricane struck. We are coming on the air for breaking news. This is Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Harvey barreling into the Texas coastline as a category four storm with one hundred and thirty mile an hour winds. It's yeah, I remember. Hervey was kind of unique because it made landfall and then it just kind of stopped and sat on top of Texas, just dumping and Dumping Rain. Some places got as much as sixty inches of rain. There was a lot of flooding obviously, our primary layer of protection was our power supply. When the storm hit we lost our primary power. You're hearing a guy who is a division president at one of those petrochemical companies that was overwhelmed by the flooding. His name is Richard. Rendered the company he helped run it's called Arkham. We brought in emergency generators to provide backup power. So what he's describing his in the aftermath of the storm, those generators were compromised. There's this intense effort to keep the power on at the Arkansas plant outside Houston. The plant is near a major highway. It's in a relatively residential area. So why were they fighting so hard to keep the power on basically because the plant was full of chemicals that have to be refrigerated Otherwise they catch fire. We do have that breaking news that we've been bringing you throughout the five o'clock hour this brand new explosion and a fire burning. As we speak the Arkham plant in Crosby, you can see that plume of black smoke billowing into the air. In fact, you can see it for miles and miles away. So they make organic peroxides which are. Volatile Chemicals, they're used to manufacture plastics and other stuff and organic rock sides are pretty hazardous because they can catch fire if they get warm right and they don't even need a spark, right. So organic peroxides contain both fuel and oxygen and when they become unstable, they heat up on their own and catch fire. Yeah. I can really hear that PhD coming through. So the Arima plant, it had a lot of refrigerated warehouses and buildings to keep these chemicals cold, and they also have a bunch of refrigerated trailers outside those warehouses. Okay. So talk me through it. What happened that resulted in the accident so harvey was stalled over the Houston area, just dumping rain for days and the refrigerated warehouses, the buildings they were flooding as the warehouses flooded. The employees were using forklifts to move containers of these chemicals from one refrigerated warehouse to another to try to keep them dry and cool, and the water just kept getting higher and higher and the electrical generators for the buildings started. Flood that's not good and then the forklift flooded. Okay. So would you do when you're forklift floods? So according to the US chemical, Safety Board investigation employees at the plant started carrying individual jugs of these highly flammable liquids in the dark my chest high water while it was still raining to get it to the refrigerated trailers we talked about because only the trailer still had power. Yeah. I read this report and it was terrifying like I can't imagine being one of those people still there as they're in like deep water trying to move these chemicals at one point, one of the trailer started to turn over. On their side. It was really like super scary. Yeah and you might be able to guess what happens next the trailers flooded they weren't refrigerated anymore the chemicals got warmer and warmer until they caught fire. So did people get hurt when the fire started in the plant? Well, the plant had been evacuated. So the employees were okay that we know of but there were some first responders who say they were injured while they were patrolling the area that had been evacuated specifically that there is and respiratory tracts were urinated by air contamination and there were some people who live nearby who also say they were injured. By the smoke and the ash from the fires. So we knew the chemicals themselves can be toxic was the smoke from them toxic as well. That's a good question. So when the chemicals burned, they actually just turned into carbon dioxide and water, but I talked to multiple organic chemists and they explained that the problem is actually the containers that were being burned a chemist at Bryn Mawr. College Name Michelle Francis explained it this way everything from the labels on things to whatever plastic or metal that the containers are made out of all that stuff is GonNa absorb other chemicals that didn't burn entirely. So the ashes nasty. The ashes nasty so that ash is made up of container junk and chemicals that didn't totally burn. That's the stuff that potentially could have harmed the first responders and the people close by and it's not something you ideally want in the air or water right so much. So that in two thousand, eighteen, the district attorney's Office for Harris County Texas announced criminal charges against the plant manager who was actually one of the people carrying those chemicals through the water. And Armas North American CEO, and later they also filed charges against a third person and executive at the company which was really surprising to a lot of people because in general, the criminal courts aren't used to punish companies in their employees for polluting the air and water especially when it happens during big storms and I went down to Houston interviewed the district attorney about it. Her name is Kim Og-. The. Charges are environmental. They are reckless emission of an air contaminant and endangerment of persons. Reckless emissions of an air contaminant feels like a bunch of words that be polluting lawyers like. Big Words. So why did she say she was filing these charges you mentioned that there were a lot of petrochemical plants around Houston that flooded and leak stuff during Hurricane Harvey is there something about these fires that was worse? Yeah I asked her that and one argument she made is that the fires happened because people at Arkham ignored the risk of flooding like they should have known that their plant could flood like that and prepared better. For example, the plant is in a flood plain and even though Harvey dumped more rain than any US storm on record the argument the county is making. Is that there were signs that flood risk was increasing before harvey because of Climate Change we've had new normal in Houston. We've had three five hundred year floods in just a short period of time, and it's true that flooding is getting more frequent and severe in. Houston as it is in many parts of the country and something climate models have been predicting for a long time that extreme rain will get more likely as earth hotter including rain from hurricanes. So in this case, the county is basically arguing that the company had a responsibility to recognize that flood risk was increasing and do. More to keep their chemicals from catching fire. So obviously, the company doesn't agree or they wouldn't be in the middle of a trial right now what is the company say? So after the indictments for announced, I interviewed two of the layers representing Komo and its employees. One of them is pretty well known in Houston been working for a really long time. His name is Rusty Harden Arkham did everything they were supposed to do here hardened says the company followed all the regulations it's required to follow. He seemed pretty galled that employees were facing criminal charges trying to find scapegoats and calling individuals felons. Are you kidding me this is outrageous. It's morally legally ethically wrong and the point he made is that if the current regulations for chemical companies in flood prone areas aren't enough. Then the regulations should be changed by legislatures not by courts and especially he argues by criminal courts sometimes bad things happen that there's no crime. There's no responsibility is not anyone's fault we need to look forward to. The future and make sure that we are prepared for these kinds of things if this is going to be the new norm in many think it is. Okay. So becky, like what is at stake in this trial if the county wins and the company loses will that change how we think about climate change in the law it could actually yeah, I talked to this Guy David Omen he's. A law professor at the University of Michigan, and one thing he said that I think is really interesting is that environmental laws and regulations are generally based on this underlying assumption that the future will look like the past today. Already, we expect companies to be prepared to handle what I might call ordinary rainfall. What climate change is going to do among other things is change our definition of what is ordinary rainfall. Another way to understand it in a legal context is that you can be held accountable and punished. If you don't prepare for something, you should have seen coming. It's the idea of foreseeability so. Like if you know that climate change is happening, does that mean it's foreseeable and you should prepare for it yet that's the big question exactly and how foreseeable extreme weather is hinges in part on how businesses inform themselves about the climate science that's available to them, right? Yeah. Like I talked to an environmental lawyer at the Conservation Law Foundation Alina Mehalle that foreseeability isn't just a question of did you personally know that this could happen but it's really what kind of maps were available to you. What kind of experts did you hire to inform yourself about this decision? What kind of modeling
Interview With Niraj Shah And Steve Conine
"So. Pretty much everyone we'd had on the show had a passion for a product that they needed to put out into the world lower American believed the world needed Lara Bars Jenny. Britain Bauer was convinced that her ice cream was gonNA change how people thought about ice cream even Jimmy Wales founder of wikipedia. Everyone should have access to free knowledge. But I'm here to tell you that that is not always the case. In fact, sometimes, the product isn't what drives the founders what really drives them is the challenge rather solving the challenge and that's basically the story behind wayfair neither Steve Konae nor near shopping felt that strongly about home furnishings but they did feel like people should have choices no matter where they lift because there was a time. When if you lived in say Evansville Indiana, you couldn't easily get the same type of Cool Coffee Table, or Sofa that someone in San Francisco or New York could get. And today we ourselves almost five billion dollars worth of this stuff every year. We're was actually the third company Stephen, Neeraj started together. They met as teenagers at a summer camp for math and engineering nerves in the early nineteen nineties quickly touch. But then almost a year later, if fate herself was watching over these guys, they both ended up as first years at Cornell assigned to dorm rooms on the same corridor. Did, you know both of you did the other one was going to cornell no end really kept in touch. So I think it was It was a surprise. Very much I was like, Hey, what's up? This past year. So were you friends like right away? Yeah. We were part of A. When your freshman year, you sort of have a small group of friends that you sort of connect with and spend a lot of your time with and we were in that group together and then junior year near started. We've got to be a lot closer and live together that year. Junior and senior we actually live together as well with it with a few other. People up at Cornell. Yeah, did you guys near to shoot you steve us to talk about starting a business when you in college I don't know that we have talked about it per se but our last semester at Cornell we took an entrepreneurship courses, one of our elective courses and in this entrepreneurship course, one of the things you had to do was create a business plan and what really happened is through the process of doing the project which is creating the business plan. We basically started our first business. Yeah. It was ninety five and it was very early as the netscape browser come out that year. Our idea was actually to develop Internet. Directory Services, and we would go downtown New York and try to pitch companies on paying five Bucks Avenue Listing I in our Internet directory. Of course, most people look at us like we're nuts a few would say, hey, that's interesting. But I I don't even have a homepage called at the time. Could you help me build a website and you know maybe at least get present on the Internet and what would that cost me and so the business turned into kind of an Internet consulting business that built sites for companies, and you kind of knew how to do the basics because you were engineering students exactly. So you'd go from project to project and Comey's were to move very quickly. You know different people would ask other people in your who could be higher so on. So forth, we were one of the few shops that actually done things. When you would meet when you guys are going meet with clients. Did you ever get a feeling from any of them that they would look at you and think late these guys. Fired A twenty two year. Old Kid. You know we did we both were pretty good sales guy. So I don't I don't remember that being snacking me too hard. I mean I I think that you know the prices were charging versus what they would be looking at consultancies I think a lot of these bigger shops looked at it as like. Play money where they're kind of like. Well, whatever how bad. Kimiko. With a couple of college students here are doing this for us if it works out phenomenal if it doesn't work out, you know whatever we haven't really we haven't really lost a lot.
CEO Chris Best on the growing appetite for paid newsletters
"Welcome to the day podcast. I'm Lara Riley debate here correspondent in London I'm filling in for your regular host Brian Marcy throughout the on August. Today I'm delighted. So well, respected to the show Chris is the CEO substance. You'll obviously now is the newsletter of formats helping provide the obstruction for grabbed new class of entrepreneurs and some of which Reggie making more money now than their individual needs and they were. Prestigious salary jobs Chris got have you today thanks for having me? Where are you joining us from San Francisco fantastic? So, of course, before you joined stack just wants to go back a little bit. You're a software engineer and program by trade is that right? Yeah. And so prior to substitute stuck, you're one of the founders of kick, which is the the messaging APP that was particularly popular amongst teens but shutdown last year. which was also after you'd left to 'em. So how to kick come about how to kick? Why met Ted In. Third, year university. And kind of fair early on in the SMARTPHONE era I guess we would on -Tario the. Rim made the black. That'll phone that had the keyboard accident and there was sort of. A. Time back then when. It was early days smartphone. The people that had lack breeze were kind of like wall, Street, traders and interns from the university waddled the work that Larry and so we sort of had this early idea that okay. The smartphone is going to take over the world. which is something that was is seems really obvious rep respect. But at the time people maybe didn't fully believe or didn't fully understand and we started working on we actually started making a music player for the blackberry and went through a bunch of iterations morph in March and ended up. Coming to messaging felt like messaging was kind of the core most Gordon application of this magical new computer physiologic her And the kick was around for around skin ten years and it was I guess without its controversies Choisir. What was one of the biggest lessons that learn in in building that business? I mean, there was a lot of just mechanics of building company. I sometimes joke that doing it a second time as a chance to make mistakes. I think one thing that really stuck with me is when you have a system that people are using to communicate the rules of how the system are and the inch rations the just the the way the present interactions people can have a massive effect on. The emergent behavior in that system like the the outcomes, the kinds of feel a place. Is Massive we can be massively shaped by the rules of the game you set up a system Dealing with use a content as well, which which comes with its own challenges. Sure. This move on said why sub stacks 2017 is when you can officially founded the company what was the genesis of the idea that it can have start as a bit of a sites to hustle while you still CTO at kick? No, I've left kick under. Circumstances. That seem like the right time we bought a company. There's somebody that was perfect advice. Great your means by. Taking. I. Plan to take a year off and sort of do all the things that you don't always get to do when you're running fast company like spend time with friends and Family Rivas. Always, things and one of the things I've always sort of had envisioned to do try to write because I've always been an avid reader. I'm a huge believer that what matters sheets. Think you are in so great writing. Very, valuable high leverage to Like trying. Rights Vanessa blockbuster something. Projects that I do and I started writing something sort of complaining about the state of the media ecosystem. The. Theory being that, hey, the internet came along and revolutionized distribution for for content. You publish globally instantly free in this magical utopian technology. But at the same time, it came in smash all of the existing business models. and I was writing an essay complaining about this senator, my friend Hamish a writer SORTA got into it at. said, it's easy to complain about this stuff your what would you do about? This even work differently and it. Turned into the company. So I I sometimes I'm still just procrastinating from finishing not one essay.

Twitter Will Be Fun Today - The College Kids Who Hacked Into Twitter
"Today's guests. His Hip Awan CEO of Afani. Secure and private cell phone service locum his Heeb. Thank you Laura for home. You'll show. You were one of the investigators in touch with the young people who hacked twitter last week and gain control of prominent accounts, including those of Joe. Biden Obama Elon Musk and others as well as those of crypt companies like coin, base and finance, and when they had control those accounts, they were soliciting bitcoin from twitter users. How did you get in touch with the hackers? So Laura be in like. four-time itself, so then after I was so pissed off that angry that I said I need to solve this problem, and so I've entered into a form that relates how they have those accounts holiday getting pretty much all the ring of how they operate so. When you say that they had had your twitter account, nor they have my Sim Sark four times. Okay, and when you say Sim, swaps just described that in case, listeners does up. Does improper pretty much. What happened is like someone will take the form so the underground market like think about Ebay, but like I knew democracy with information. So you said your name, your information social security number your call logs your life, your life, location or anything on you. If I say hey, I need to find out for Laura Shane telephone number, and they'll give me telephone number will give me a call loss to give you. An everything comes through telephone numbers of numbers unique, and then if I say. Say Hey. I need to take the phone number 'cause I need so they will just prophet abuse him that I control, and I need to pay them few hundred dollars now. Your formula not work anymore because I had control of Sim card, so then I use that telephone number to get into a g mail, facebook and twitter, so if you go on twitter, new likely rescinded to email our number. If it's telephone number you've got. Someone's adopted very common technique deployed across US for a long time. So. The twitter hack twitter said that their employees had been socially engineered, and that's how these hackers gained control the systems. Are you saying that? Some twitter employees have their account. Sim swapped like how how does that you or Simspon tried? These people relate to the twitter Hack Greg? You wanted to ask me like how to get in touch with them so I'm trying to understand. You, that of analysis himself, so started going into the industry into this form than trying to see how they operate and to Dodd funny, so which will provide the made acadia that probably that cannot be Simpson's. That's what we did an offer that. VINCI START GETTING customers. Have you would actually getting a lot of attempts to do so? You would getting Dempsey pretty much every week that someone prior to himself or customer, trying to like hack into our system and mend the failed. I got in contact David Mayhew call, they would email method you and they will do all kinds of attacks. You know they'll try to let pen to pen tests. The everything did and obviously in one of the cases restocked immunity stopping messing around it right I know what you're up to. And after I got in touch with him to signal and author that the lake. Not I won't say that become a friend, but I told them why you're doing this. Thank you know you should not do this multiple hackers and they said okay. If you don't have anything to do pretty much, does it okay? Why don't you get a job? He said job, and then they start feeding the all information to proved at. Legit than a lot of information and how I was getting information from a lot of talk of the vote. And when it all this happened that you got in touch with him and had it happened late four five months ago. Okay They were diverging to me not just for this hot, but for other purposes to ride like a kid discount. Lot of databases beach everyday, so they wanted to see that a hey. If I'm interesting in the database, just wanted to work pretty much. is not money. It's also about ego that they wanNA prove something that they would do something so. So Mike Context for not hacking, but they'll be into the songs that they had access to. That follows A. Up I didn't want to. Excessive today were passing me. Hey, today. This is for sale to do sports on tomorrow. This person's so on the deal stood attack. I got a message that will be fun today, and when this message I thought he'd be like a distributor barks. Like scam scams, and but after why? That's all the kind. We got attacked ten. Finance Accounting Noble at depth one time. I taught that it's just a third party API like you know you have like you know where your schedule. The in everything I thought that may be compromised, and that's how they got author. Riley said No. We have everything. A screen chart I tweeted screen shot, and after that is blue. Well and so, who are these people? who were the people involved in the actual twitter hack? The difficult to identity like frankly I don't know I can speculate, but obviously because someone security and privacy I don't want to speculate but I can tell you wanting like college. Kids are maybe like someone between eight, eighty, twenty, one, twenty, two, and they are video gamers. They'd metaphor armed, and they found fascinating for them. Dislike a game like you go into video game on you killing you do stuff for them. It's like that. They, probably living in some way or radio patterns right now in basement. Who does not even know anything? and. They just do it for fun. Obviously, money's there, too, but most of fun for them is just a today. And so originally. The way you got in touch with them was they were targeting these different cell phone accounts, and what does motivation and taking over the different cell phone accounts so for account you can actually to when people take account, they can actually destroy you financially emotionally ended up recently, though by financial I can say they can get into your county bank accounts ticket by Tiptoe through that they can buy a lot of levels of securities financially they can do. obviously going to facebook in an email to, and then they donor all information from your facebook, and then they start blackmailing you that. Hey, likely when a lot you have done this like you know you have this. And you have to pay me this information out there and a lot of people would have to pay them the money because they don't pay the money. They looted operation right so and then third party. They just become Parson Mike is the word processing me. blender used to take my county new. They cannot get anything, but they wanted to talk to me. Just fun for them like people. Some people are sick. Like how did they pick you out of all the different people that they could torture also the league, if not just me like everyday hundreds of people to get them soft, though I'm just one of them on average, every second medical become victim of since up, not himself but cybercrimes so. But I had the impression that this was primarily targeting crypto currency people, but you're saying it's any bundled nor I think eighty percent of people who was himself to an entrepreneur L.! And the new in the cases of those people is it like personal vendettas that they're trying to? You can make more money by a hacking Lord cell than anything else you know. is one thing but Lloyd is like one number one target Loyd and has professionals league doctor medical doctor then. In Lord other number one targets in suffers, and what is the motivation for targeting lawyers Don. Money don't happen. How do they monetize that Yeah, so I tell you doctors, basically busy less tech, savvy and rich. It's that easy to find out any doctor information. You can find out who the best doctor in the city and you consume. Stop Him. And once you get into that account, you can transfer money between accounts who can be that people have been? Going into the count, Simpson calling the bank making via transfer, and then just checking accounts. That's pretty common. For for doctors to clinics have a lot of money. If you'RE GONNA clinic, instead he did even like five hundred hundred million dollar distorted the front because Alaska. Election for them. Okay, so let's go back to the twitter hack. They were some names that were identified of people who are involved these names. In The New York Times article that quoted you as a source one was kirk. There were some other people ll and ever so anxious. Who were these people? And how did they know each other? So they don't. Know the Best Birdie. They just hang out on rooms like chatting channels lake similar people on developed talked with you. The pirates channels. We had people a go if they WANNA have information to the document industry for finding information. If I want someone associated Gordon dissipates on one. Don't get call for these people trade information. And you asked about like a leg. Imagine your lawyer and you are fighting for my open kiss. We begin go to the website by that long since he will. They are who they're talking to the day can. Make some delays on them. That's one thing but other than that. These people are just a game as they would play like you know different video games and kick the die, who was basically a source of the rate industry rock says they'll be extra agents, and they are in room for longtime and David. Obviously you want you want something you don't trust the new guy. The new guy who is basically the main culprit punching the entity because multiple reasons, but the main guidance, the just which had A. Reputation. If you say you want a username of Laura at Laura, Shannon inactive. You may not trust kick, so you can do this. Middle Diane Tell Them Hey, can you hold the money for because you have a good relation? Because like Ebid forums generally have a petition systems. You know so then you ve into this guy like you know every inch it He went to care. Concur depended he the credit employees but I. Don't think he was employees. And, then he gave him the concert start building. So this is just a middleman. He was just broken deals. You tell them what you want. He was just keep his car and transfer the money. The is completed that fall. And so so kirk was was saying that he was a twitter employees, but as you said, you don't think that he was, and he was essentially selling valuable twitter accounts, and if people didn't trust, Kirk, they would use ever so anxious as their middleman to get the different twitter handles that they wanted. Is that what happened? That's correct. Good Gig, only unharmed on in July of. July it was very recently. that. He actually came so obviously not trust someone admit. That soon. July seventh in the New York Times article are. Limited okay, but all right so but ever so anxious. How to longer reputation and. And that was who people are transacting with. And so then. How did BITCOIN come into this? All. On these things happen through Bitcoins, so the way it started was they were selling. This twitter handles four bitcoin and then later. How did the scam change? So I. Personally is what I personally think. That kid was in touch with the employees who was giving these accounts. For a few thousand dollars. And then. Either bribed him. Architects. Social Engineering Him. Legs because like hey can do. This is my. This is purely my speculation that you're working for so long. He warned the trust. Any may have said Hey, can you log in forbid I wanNA see how it looks like something that he made it something so the guy is pasta on. Hey, just do it, but don't do anything crazy. You Know Butt kicked. Decide Okay, man I can just go on or can also go online with I can do it I can. Can also go on like you know. All those accounts crazy. That's what I okay, but you're just speculating. You don't have any proof that or or do you know what? I don't have any proof of that I don't approve. Have critic probably do it? And Kirk? Is probably a guy called coup, which is on a farm for a long time, so he speculated that he someone that was in the industry for wide, but not. Approved that. Kicked it, but from all the action than everything it all points to cook. Irene so in a moment we're gonNA. Talk a little bit more about what happened. Exactly I, in sight, twitter and scam, but First a quick word from the sponsors who make this show possible. How much in fees are you paying?

Back to my conversation with his Heeb Awan. So, we don't know exactly how. Kirk got into twitter's internal systems. However Once. He or she did then what'd he do or or she do with their power? So. Kirk than they went to buy I think. Start with by notes I'm coin base. And the see your finance and he made it account Egypt first of all. What did it was did with other? Account. Okay, which means when you log in, it asks you to do a second type of security, which is hopefully. If you're in the crypto space, you have used something like Hugo, authenticate or key, and you're not using text message based second factor authentication. Where they sent a code your phone because otherwise if he gets swaps than than having no. Buyer so. Removed that and then keep going good thing. They added wall a secondary second. You know Autodata so now. I'll give example like you have my username seep, so they moved to a FE, and they're also removed. Jane, Email. And then they. Did possible reset. So the new email guard, the chain deposited garden the account. and. tweeted whatever they wanted. Well, and what were they tweeting? So, they were tweeting that you know. About Co. Ed Nineteen I believe like you know because of Covid, we like helping people. I don't remember the wording. Health Has Something and they said Back. And this is video any comments in YouTube. Actually they were so good that frankly sometime I get like you know Oh my God like the able to make it like a secondary thing. That's real you know and like, but this happens pretty commonly, and and it's happening for almost two years now i. It, really is the kind of thing where people think it's real I honestly. Had created a question for you, which is who are the people who are savvy enough to own bitcoin and know how to send it, but not savvy enough to spot. What to me seems like an obvious scam. Actually went on the Internet and are tweeted out this thing same thing I said like who are those people who can have sophisticated enough to buy Bitcoin, but knowledge to. Send. Bitcoin but I think leap Dick's everything. Like I agree people think okay. Let's give it a chance. You know it's like a lottery ticket. You know people may be, but they think what if this is true and other than that. If you like an must happening there, actually flaunted, be efforts on twitter. All the time with people are donating money on twitter, but they don't ask for anything they say hey, can you give me your Alfred Egland who this every day, so he will dollars to off fifty dollars for every person everyday. You'll say. Retreat this. I'll give you this money. So this happens right now and obviously As hit audible, read like you know when viewed come in people, people forget everything that you know. We have so many Ponzi scheme like so many scattered that happened that exist today could if I come to unity Laura investment scheme, which is a pretty good you know. He hit all the MACHIDA. But it only gives you five percent. You may not listen to that. Say Hey, Lord the Child who may tennis money tomorrow. You may skip everything. Cocaine is thousand and ten dollars tomorrow. Okay I'll take the risk from doing that. Hopefully I'm sure my listeners are savvy enough to know if it sounds too good to be true. But people do that I. Think I have estimated that around like maybe I. Just in this journal given us cam like. He put a lot of tens of millions of dollars and well not last week, but no, not over time overtime. Yeah, yeah, we'll be sending money, so there are enough food. I guess yeah over I mean for last week. The hackers did net about a little over thirteen bitcoin, which was about one hundred twenty thousand dollars, although analysts said that about twenty, thousand of it seems to have come from a suspicious address that they actually think controlled by the hackers to kind of make it look like this was legit and people were actually sending money. But then also by the way they could have netted more. However, Cuevas said that it did prevent more than one thousand customers from sending about two hundred and eighty thousand dollars worth of Bitcoin to the twitter hackers so oriented, so let's talk a little bit also about just what happened in twitter which was? Twitter blog posts. Hackers a targeted. Thirty accounts for forty five of those they reset the password and sent tweets from those accounts for eight of them. They actually downloaded that counts data, and then for thirty sixty legitimate direct message inbox, including one elected official from the Netherlands, and it was who. What do you think they could do with such information? I think it's A. Black, man that I've been talking to you about what happened with sin sopping. Let's think about it if you have first all that fool Phoolan that why didn't put? It wasn't like planned. I don't believe it was just like in the move in the heat of happened. BANDAIDS slaves. They clearly guy who just got drunken pretty might do everything but I think if you have access to like anyone, social media, proper social media like I have been I've received. Messages. And I but I don't believe that I think we have forged around. Believe the electoral, so, but if you have someone should media that maybe confidential information that can be misused by Stacey when leg if you do about it on dedic messages, a you know that's not confident that even with the journalist visceral broads. You know so I. Don't know who the information was. What fast, but that's video very very concerning and I believe this may happen on facebook or other social media from his. Because to same. Attack Factor. Yeah I definitely think that this is. One of those cases where it makes you want to just use encrypted social messaging APPS. Such as like signal or something, maybe what's up? So, let's just also talk a little bit about what we said before about how the hackers were able to remove two factor authentication on these accounts. Well, actually what they did I was. They changed the email address. And then the chain Laras Oh, actually bid on a there was A. There was an email. There was a blog post by somebody who had the at six twitter account, and they said they believed that the hackers change the address, but that when that happened, it did not send a notification to the original email address, but not I don't know if this person was surmising, you know six hundred interest in history, those belong to a hacker. Their the community of Hackers Gobi Twenty six hundred. That's like a court for hackers right. Not a quarterback, just like community for hackers and you were the hacker who ended up homeless anywhere. They will do attack into I think he would to. And he went into multiple you as homeless, but he was a hacker. And oxygen community belong to sixty name. Is this secretly off? I believe his name. And, but yes, but I think the first drift was removed and then. moved. To the letter. Control of it now thought it was the reverse, but either way. In Like for any of us who are in the crypto space who have been? Keeping up with our security and using things like Google. or UB and avoiding. Text message based to a or or any kind of to a based on our phone number. What? Can we take away from this like? Is there any advice that you have for Crypto? People on how they can protect themselves if the services that we use have loopholes like this. Let's not that'll be biased in obviously you know. Will. Finding here, but that's what we do, right. We work, but a lot. Actually I am surprised at how many a compromise them security argue out stocking some customer yesterday and they do You know an extra seat is probably the most I can tell you I know. We are making like a faces, but at same part exit. She's most prominent used offer manager for probably ninety ninety nine percent of the word. What would you recommend instead? Use a password manager, anything manager pretty much everything in the top five six. It stood, you know. Don't cheat on family plan. out on like those like a caveman. This company go with a better company. Even if you don't go the final leg, that's fine at least hell better company like Dourthouse I'm plan because no fan mace. You make you very vulnerable to now you're putting your own life on risk, but everyone who is in the time is. You know and the third party. Don't give out your telephone. Number molasses everywhere. You know like. Don't go to like you. Know have different email address if you want to. And you let you. At Google. Authentic get off your. There's something at one time I have statistics, said ninety five percent of people who are like major changes. Do not have to a fait. Sms I'm talking more to a and I think ninety nine percent of those are what you estimates to say. The people who've been additives Everyday I have started I deal with at least two or three people who get up everyday and came and we had some of the to affair, and I can get into that lot of people into the spark that they were not believe enough not to change it. please. Don't please don't be those people, but I can tell you like I've spent people and I said do this. Man How much time did it like five minutes six league. Logistics you Donald and APP, you know. have to familiar face. You know if you are very cautious, taken for a number, but I can tell you that Khomeini would make this mistake. Ordering will end and it you know, and in the end I did lose industry learn. That's was part. There was still use the same SMS to a fait. The dating did not happen to them. Again happened again. Because if it happens to once, you become more, you know your motorcycle getting out again. If they have found something and something, they just do for fun, and and you know what I because obviously I'm. Biased in a way that the. Customer. Time I've been a victim four times a feed Logar they can. What would you do? Please please please setup. SMS elected more music episodes into gear and please get family plan these I. Know You're saving their ten twenty dollars per months, but in the end you know if you call it a, it's like insurance. You can live without insurance to. But like you know. The one day you need insurance when you need it.
"The other day I was doing some beauty editor homework and having a little bit of fun and trying out a new eyeliner. It's a brand new eyeliner from a luxury brand and it was A.

Are, you're so funny. Well, that's what I that's. What I want is no, because here's the thing like I was not trying to be Funky I was seeing Jeff and his family. With the baby I was not like trying to do like a euphoria. You know like Mo okay. HBO four again, Google. If you're not familiar with that show, I was not trying to look Funky, so I was just like okay I. Guess It is what it is now I know so I immediately knew that makeup artist Christopher buckle would be able to explain this phenomenon to me I just had a feeling he would like. Give it to me real so I took a picture of my eyeliner in the bathroom, and he had a few different explanations I said. Oxide is now. He said that. You know he's an oxidation. He said it could be that, but he really got more specific. He goes sometimes. It's the PH in your skin that can change the color. It could be anything from you know of the chemistry that's going in your body chemistry. He's not a doctor and he's not saying he's presuming to be like Oh got pregnant or At least scan or not or hormones, it could be alcohol. Consumption I had a glass of wine. It could be he. You know. He had a funny story from East. That like you know. He had a client that she was drinking wine. You know about an hour after he did her contour and it went gray like their clients who that actually make sense because you can like. Like sweat that out, and it might change the form. Yeah I can't ride in touch. He's like I can't go touch her foundation after you because we have to start from scratch, so he just wanted to reiterate that like make up. You know is chemistry like we're alive, and the chemistry interacts with the products that we put on our face. We're not just this blank canvas. That, you know, it's not A. Sheet of paper that we can just put the colors on from the Sephora Palette and then you know it's all equal like makeup interacts with our bodies, so I thought that was really interesting, and then some people and like this is me I. Don't know about you, but have a lot of red and purple around the I. If. We don't conceal the skin. It's going that redness is going to come through. Any shadow were liner and it's going to alter the color so I'm treating my you know I'm looking at my eyelid. Not all like looks pretty pretty neutral today. Like I didn't rhyme. I didn't put any I didn't put anything on that morning. I was like you know my i. My my my sorry. KINDA PEACH! This is kind of Topaz. Put It on looks cool, and then I'm sweating I'm talking. I'm having food caffeine. The whole thing, Bam Bright Orange, so so should you have done a prime? Exactly? I should have done I should have done. A concealed base should a primer should it against healer? Maybe even should've done a shadow even though I kind of didn't want the look of like perfect shadow within, and you know I didn't want this perfect like done. Look because I was like. We're just going to be sitting outside and having you know. A lunch, yeah! You just want to have like a throw on an eyeliner, but it's A. It's a good tip to 'cause i. feel like more contact has directly with your skin, your sweat in your chemistry, the more likely to be color Balanga at the Laurie Al. Cosmetic Kim Yeah on she talked about she said I. Nobody Calls It. Oxidation is not always oxidation, but like your skin affects what you wear and I remember her talking about Primers before for foundation to to make sure it doesn't shift colors. So, I wouldn't use Promo, normally, because I would think twenty like easy going about it, but I don't know. Do you use primer well? I think that's what you WANNA. Do you're making a little shields between the chemistry of your skin and the eyeliner and you're not using it because you're doing a whole contoured i. look you know it's just to give the line or something neutral to cling onto I do. Use It when I am doing like a look. I like Lara mercy. I- basics primer. It's lights. Good one. There's different shades of choose. You could get skin tone matching and has little applicator. I do not like the applicator little pokey. pokey, stick in my eye. So what you? How do you put it on like I? Swear, I pulled them out of the tube. Put on the back of my hand, Dat, my ring finger on and DAB that onto my eyelid, not for a look just to give like a nice base. It really makes everything's Day, but I'm sure the easy to sheer out. We don't want to really share out. You just WANNA. Get that nice little canvas for your eyeliner so that then you're all your caffeine. Consumption Alcohol and whatever shifted the color isn't getting through to the eyeliner. You know okay. Okay all right. Yet you do use. Primer I used to I used to get into the habit of doing it, and then I think I dislike. Fell by the wayside, and then I didn't like like you, said the pokey sick. Like funny about my eyes lately, so I stopped using it because they didn't like the POGGI. I I. Think you need to try this liner with the primer so that we can see if that was the issue and then if. You have to tell us what it is. Okay. I didn't I know. I'm not giving this liner fair shot. Yes, give it a shot. Jess okay to hammer.

My boss reprimanded me today. How? Zuma. Zuber? And I was getting ready to. I was getting ready to fly across the country on my own money to hopefully be on a show to hopefully be on TV. Hopefully, get to tape a set to hopefully be on TD. Just not knowing if it was GONNA work out. It was like a lot. It was a big gamble for me in Wisconsin. and. This is my little Kogyo. and. I showed up a showed up at the airport and in Chicago you take the Brown line to Midway and then between the Brown line and Midway. There's like a quarter mile. Of a hallway and both sides are aligned with pictures of the Koslow. Like really felt the presence of Gosh. I'm getting felt again chill. Really felt the presence of God because I 'cause I had been praying like constantly like please just. Who's I learned like? If you're afraid than do it afraid, and so I was like. Please just like direct my feet. Just take me through this experience. Walk me through this experience. and then. Like I saw. You know a hallway lined with the images of your higher power. At a time of extreme extreme uncertainty. I can't remember so you flew to La and did you do it? Included Atlanta get it and I got on TV show. I thought for sure that story ended. In my memory with. It all got cancelled. Everything worked out how. I was on the show taped and my mind got picked to be on TV. I feel like. When you talk about a universe universe one one. You know I know there's the multi verse, but it's when you're talking about. You're at home. Nece in this place your belonging in this place. Did you freeze? Mother Fuck Are you there. yeah, but you're screaming front back. I heard everything you've said so. It was probably recorded your back your. Did. Did you phrase mother fuck? Mother, Fuck. You can keep all that this is life on Zoom I don't care. Who let the people here? I'm saying you're talking about finding your inherent dignity year belonging miss in the world and. We have been just these past weeks. steeping in serendipitous and signs like that that I really feel like we all are, and there's just like a frequency. We need to bring ourselves to start spotting them. I had a pitch. Talk about fabulous as you are. I had a pitch and I was. Ten out of ten one of the things that happens when I stopped. Smoking Weed is my full full brain comes back. and I've just been very sharp. And I have to deal with that. It's like my friend told me about when he was going through the program. Here was like when you stop drinking. You feel better meaning. You feel angry better. You feel sad better. He feel happy better and I always think about that, so the price of p having his brain is that sometimes I feel other things I feel anxiety or feel this because I'm not numb, so it's not always easy. But I'm ten out of ten. The tank is full. When I'm sleeping on actually sleeping, I'm not detoxing. You know what I mean like. I'm actually resting and so I had this patch. And On the pitch, it was a warm pitch meaning everybody was very receptive and happy to be talking with us, and I just went for broke. And then I went in, so was this pitch where I was really shining as bright as I could and. Sailing and being charming or whatever whatever I thought would help. Then I went in, and it was like valid. This is what I think I know you know though, but people might not know. The price of that is that you get what we call of vulnerability hangover. Meaning, I'm like I. Just went on a date and I told them that I wanted to have their babies I was like I am in love with you I'm in love with this project I see this going for a long time, please. Don't hurt me I'm showing my neck I'm showing my heart, and I said about I was like I feel. Naked in cold on the beach. I just feel so exposed right now. I'm going to go for a walk. Called Rebibbia his years a a wonderful friend. And I needed somebody that wouldn't be a uncomfortable or intimidated me talking that way I could have got you obviously, but I I called Mike, and I was just like I just shown as bright as I could, and I'm feeling so. kind of embarrassed like vulnerable and afraid. And he talked me down a little bit. And then I started feeling better exercise always helps just going on a walk. And a monarch butterfly flew by my face. and. This is just one of the stories whereas like Oh. They bought it. And then I found out that they did buy it, and it was sanctuary great moment, but like again Disney Pixar will butterflies fuck you. Butterfly doesn't mean anything, but when it happened like you in that Hallway, I'm just trying to relate. It's like falling in love. It's like a you know you know. Sometimes. It's just a butterfly, and sometimes you're like that was the butterfly I needed to.

People with nervous systems like ours Benefa- from like not. Like! We're we're the nervous parents that like you could have called. Like we need to know where people are. There's a part of my brain.

And I can go stay with him if we don't find a place by then, so it's not I. Don't want you to worry for me I. Think I have shut you off? If you text you and a couple friends, I, do worry. I worry about people and I. Worry about people that aren't able to work and I'm just like. That's my dad energy. That's going to be something Leila's going to have to reckon with where I'm just like. You have enough to e which is which is a good instinct I. Don't want to get rid of that, but. You're okay, and it means so much to me because like you.

Here's what I want to talk about There's a couple of things I want to talk about. One is your experience because you're in love. And that's so wonderful and I'm so happy and I'm GonNa Tell Val and she's going to be so happy your time dating now I know most people and a lot of people listening are where you were which that bites. The place is so beneficial when I was watching you so the one that and we can edit this out of this is in a comfortable. Thing but remember when we were in Disneyworld which was awesome. which remember being in that line, and we were so miserable to be in that line, but now with the quarantine. I'm like we don't know how good we had it. We were surrounded by all those people even part of me. That doesn't like being around I was like. I still remember some of the faces and the kids that I saw running around. I was like it was good like we should have enjoyed that. We were just with a mass of people I think about eating Mexican food with you and. I and people that's right couldn't have been more crowded and it was at the Mexican restaurant that you showed me this video that you were very not well. I'm GONNA say obsessed with I'll this guy? It was sort of demonstrating how good he was with kids, and how loving and Sweetie was, and you were doing what I always would do, which was I'd really like? Throw myself into the future and be like that probably means they're this and they're that and we're probably going to get together. I would just love to share with the listeners. What, you've learned, and what your experiences were in the perils of online dating because I watch you doing that and what you learned and your perspective on a I think it would be very valuable to people that are the the thousands of people that are going through it right now. Yeah, I mean everything that I've learned is like such a cliche but I also appreciate talking to you got it and talking to my sister about it, because you guys are both with your soul mates, and my experience of talking to people who are with their so maces that they're like. Event with him. You know 'cause like I. Know and my sister actually was the one who suggested we move in together and my sister likes her. Husband is a pastor and they met at Church camp when she was fifteen, and they were virgins when they got married. Like you know, you know because she's never heard me talk about it. Anyone like this, you know. Do I found my guy. And when I met him, it was like I was able to stop holding it back and they didn't realize how much I've been holding it back, but I've held it back for everyone else. I not want detects to much of not wanted to say too much. I've not wanted to let them know how much I was thinking about the future because I thought I was. Crazy because I was a little bit with this guy. It's like I can say anything I told him I thought he was my soulmate a weekend and he kept talking to me and I think that that was a little Lara being like. How safe are you really? Testing the limits a little. But also to that. Helped me now that like he knew were then, but he didn't say 'cause he was like I'm like marathoning. Like I.

"The same part of me. That's calmed down by work relationships and again I. Don't think I have to say this, but what a nightmare I hate the suffering, I hate the disease I hate the economic ramifications of social ramification all of it. My personal experience. My anxiety has been lowered living in a world where I'm like I. Don't have to make as much small talk. The first thing that you and I bonded over was that you were wearing earplugs in the Largo Green Room. And vow sad that night. She was like I think you and Lara would get along. I said why and she said she was wearing earplugs in the green room. And she knows that even though. Look I've done a good job putting big spotlights on my comfort zone, but that might be misleading. This is my comfort zone talking one on one with somebody I can make seem very gregarious very extrovert and don't get me wrong I often am. And the stage that also looks very extroverted. I'm very comfortable the truth is you and I bond so hard. Over the fact, it's like. People to close people too loud. Even though I am too loud, it's like. You and I have had so many laughs in green rooms where Mike where you and I both closed the door, we had closer. Turn the music down. Why is the Green Room shaking with the base? We are in touch with the my child south definitely wants it mother fucking quiet. It hears voices through a wall, and it thinks it is unsafe, if thinks the world is going to end in the same way that the the lower part of my brain that has malfunctioning, or let's say over functioning and tells me to eat everything in sight. Same part of my brain here's. If forget it if they're fighting, but if somebody walks by on my street, you wouldn't know my stomach, does it? It's such a weird thing to share, but I hope it's helpful. My stomach jolts and twists that like if I just hear three people walking down the street which I often do. And I've acclimated, and I wouldn't say people would notice. I don't think val necessarily notices except Taylor. because we talk about everything because we're best friends, but that part of me when I see people watching show picnic style. Like which is what Chapelle special was I was like yeah. Why do I have to sit elbow to elbow? I couldn't agree more. Watching how how closely together people have to set a comedy clubs I might. If you put me that close with strangers, I'll I'll leave. I won't watch. I won't watch the show. After all like I just can't. Do It if I'm not on an end, if I'm not close to an escape, I just can't. And I won't do it. It's not that I can't physically could, but that's not the space you WanNa, be when you're watching. Shell for your own amusement, right? That's right. Anytime I saw show. My whole life I wanted to be backstage or in the back standing. And that's what getting one of the reasons I got into show business. What's I was like? I? Bet they're. A little bit more comfortable backstage. I think most people would go yet, but they have to do the show. They have to know the lines they have to do this. They rehearse. I'm like it goes back to the sign building. I know how to do that. Like public speaking is so comfortable. Ice I have bits about this where I'm like. There's a comfort I. Talk You laugh, you clamp I leave it so anxiety-free from me once we get up there and once it's rolling, but it's actually like. I haven't taken his annex in fifteen years. What it feels like Xanax, ultimate anxiety reduction is that and sitting in a crowd and watching a show would make me feel stressed out I'd WanNa be on the side. I took a another Graham test. Which I think was social sexual. It was figuring out your bounds between social energy I i. don't even know what those terms mean. One of the questions was when you go to a movie. Where do you set the best seats in the middle of the action? Do like there's some people I remember year. Seven rose back because that's where the surround sound is or whatever I'm just. I know where I said at the arclight. It's it's you you sit. where the bar is because in front is where the wheelchairs go. And it's not about the view. It's about the it's usually empty, and you're on the side and you can leave, and that sounds like it's I have some Mike. There's going to be a an attack or something. It's not even that. If, I'm the middle of it. The movie will be only about what the people in front of me and beside me we're doing. Which is a nightmare? What a nightmare! As I say that what a prison! Which is why I'm always drying to go like. They were talking. This is what I do now. If I'm going to move, people are talking or being disruptive or something within reason like they're not being to to nuts. You just have to go like it's more important that I can be a normal person for how that I can not obsess and get lost i. go like the memory is going to a movie and enjoying it don't. Don't get sucked into that trap that my brain wants to where I'm like. I always use this example, but it's a real one. When I saw paranormal activity, there was a guy three rows in front of me. who wasn't just check texting? He was scrolling through old texts. Laura! Your face right now you look deb. Texts! In a like the brightest screen. Just remember when Tim said. What's up three weeks ago? I was like. Losing my mind, and this is what makes us funny. This is the same type of brain that makes us funny, but in the same way that the lower part of my brain that keeps me alive makes me entire pizza, because it's overacting part that makes me funny over axe, and makes it hard for me to have dinner in a restaurant Manhattan because in too close to the tables next. I that makes me sick to my stomach. Upsetting to me..

"Head. That? I didn't hear the end of the because they have to. He's still we're still you know online friends I haven't seen him in over ten years. But Norman Baker who I love. Who booked me on Best Week? Ever? The first time we had and this was when I was new enough to drinking that I didn't even know how to be a good drunk. So, I would take a shot. And I knew you're supposed to chase it with something so I do a shot and then I chase. It just makes no sense Laura with a sip of Tequila. Shot to kill him, and I was like announced time to wash the taste of Tequila with Tequila, or maybe it was with gins. Tequila I. had no. I don't mean that is a good thing. But I had no game when it came to getting fucked up and that night I blacked out. I thought I used to think the blacking out man. You fell asleep. That's. But. Yeah, we don't we all? Norman if you hear this, I call him Oprah and Cosby me. Oprah Lever Lever because I love him. and He loves Oprah and I put him in a not a not a headlock, but like a tight hug, and I licked bald head, which was if you had told sober pitch going into that party. That's my first TV show. You'RE GONNA Lick Norman's head tonight I would have run away from the party. Did this was my first break? It was my first job in show business. It was a really big deal. And I met Doug Benson at that party and I picked him up because I. Get A. Strength Challenge Drunk, or I can take Doug Benson up. He doesn't want to get out. That of you, no one would ever ask that of you. And then I thought I. met him a week later because I didn't remember meeting him and he was cold to me. We've laughed about the sense. and I didn't know why and he was like. You don't remember picking me up and I thought he was joking, I didn't know a blacking out with. But It's it's when you are away. Can You for those for those sweetie? PD's out there that don't know it means you are there and you are doing stuff and no one is behind the wheel. And you pick up Doug Benson. But you're you're play the tape thing you know what I wrote so I during the quarantine. I went through like a weird. I don't know if it's weird, but like the addict in a will always look for an excuse, and it's sort of like when you don't WanNa break up with somebody and you're like. What's their birthday in two weeks? And then it's Christmas. New Years I want someone to kiss on New Year's. And then you know it's Valentine's Day, and then you know it's march. It's my birthday. Don't want to, and then you end up staying with provide. You want somebody to go. Do All that Stop Flynn. Brain will do that, so the quarantine and my heart goes out to people staying sober during the quarantine because I know how hard it is especially. If you're by yourself, so please stay strong and know you're not alone. I went into. I realized my little. It's the hamburglar. If I. IF I was going to give my addict Avatar, it'd be the Hamburg where he just wants Ambert and he doesn't. He'll steal it from fucking. The Bird One birdie bird, he'll still win from the lesser known McDonald Land Characters. The Bird One birdie Golden Birdie. All I can picture it. Yeah like. Isn't that a prisoner isn't the verdict prisoner of some kind well. The hamburgers wearing stripes because I think the story of the Hamburglar I think that he broke out of him prison. Speaking I may be thinking of Robin. I love it whatever you're thinking of makes me so happy. But. There's a bird earn somehow involved in the game. She reminds me of roller girl. For some reason she might be wearing roller skates, but anyway. That voice that character in my brain and I. Find it helpful to de personalize it being like it's this other thing. even though that may sound unhealthy, I mean. It's an overactive part of my lower brain. That thinks you need a pizza, or you'll die, and that's I can say I love you. I see you thank you for keeping me alive, but his Jack Cornfield Communist. I'm okay just now I'm okay just. Is Not good I'm okay just now. Yeah, instead of going. Get the fuck out here. You Idiot. You're killing us. You just go like. I, Love You I! See You. I'm okay just now, but. So the quarantine and I keep hearing stories of people friends of ours valentines that never really smoked weed, and it's like they're smoking every day and my hamburglar goes. Oh, it's an excuse. And I was like I just ordered a bunch of weed and I went into a place. That was always at night. What like that makes it okay I'm just saying like it wasn't like I was waken baking or whatever it was different times. It is a little different, but I was like this time with your child. Yeah, that's right. It was Lee would be down and. get stone and there were some nights where it was great. And, then I would just keep doing it because now. It's just what I do. So, it was funny, though things that I wrote so I have it in this glass or this classic clear container all my weed, and what helps me stay away, and this is gonNA sound weird maybe is I wrote on it in Chalk, and. Be as fabulous as you are. which is something, my friend? Chris told me he was like for my any type. Which is the achiever? One of your fears is that you're too much to take. It's the fire, Hose Pete and it's too intents and he's too big. He's too loud and this is where it sound a little self aggrandizing it is. He's too fabulous and then I was just like so you're smoking to like. Slow down and shut the fuck up and be stupid or whatever it is and I. Don't mean bad stupid. I used to be my curb. The brain and I just wrote be as fabulous as you are and I. I haven't wanted to because I, realized that there's a hurt part of me that wants to. To Mirror itself in reality. I was like we don't need to do that. It's okay to be light. It's okay to be big and loud, and everything seems like it made you think about what what were you thinking well? It's so crazy because once you said that. Was that your any gramercy achiever? I was like what I wonder. If I am too. 'cause I'm probably whatever pitas on. I think you, are we. We've talked a little bit about that. And then yeah, yeah, we have, and then when you said Fire Hose, it blew me away because no one ever says that it's an unusual thing to say, and my boyfriend said. The when he started dating me, he was like I had been so thirsty I such a long time and Erstad was, and then you're like a fire house. Will that's crazy. Yeah, that's crazy that you just described herself as a firehouse and I immediately related to using people. That you have a fear of being too.

My problem with weed is I'll have an epic night like that and the next night I'm just at home alone and I'm like. I'm going to watch the first Batman and get stoned, and then it sucks. I had to write myself a letter Lara, way wrote the. Funny I go. It was something like p. You stay home. You get stoned. You always order a pizza. You eat the entire pizza or worse like even more indulgent. And I just wrote. These aren't classic night. Looking GonNa like when an old man I'm not going to be like that Thursday. where I ate the and I, had already done it that week it becomes. That's the sickness. Is You go? Isn't there something about like repeating something that isn't working over and over and over. Well. I don't know I mean there's that there's that saying like the definition of insanity. I don't think that's what you're talking about, but there is stuff in the literature that I've read about just having an incredibly poor short term memory. And then getting back in the situation, and you're like Oh. That's right. This doesn't make me feel this bums me out. I feel depressed now. 'cause I just ate a pizza at right. When you run over Utah say play the tape and that's something I still say to myself. Why don't you tell the people what you mean by that so like when I was quitting drinking, and actually now I am in a program for food as well that I started, and so I've been using that strategy of playing the tape out so usually when we think about and pro like when you think about drinking. Did you think about like? Ordering a pizza. If you're a compulsive eater, whatever you just think about like the I drink you now you think about how good it would feel to like. Take the I drink or how good it would feel to like. Order Pizza and take the first bite. in like addiction treatment. One tool that I've learned is to play the tape out, so don't stop there, 'cause you're like attic. Mind will stop there. It'll stop it. Could I bite, and it's like okay, but what happens after that? Oh, I eat a whole pizza. Maybe I throw up. Like shed, I feel super depressed. Because I promised myself I wouldn't do this again. I mean lying. Or Okay what happens after I take the I drink. Don't stop the tape there. Play it through to where you hit on your boss and wet your pants like you want to see that part, too. For me was when I, put the booker best week ever, and it had blocking licked his bald.

"There aren't many corners in the world to lift that would still hold culinary secrets. Recipes undiscovered by the white world but Indonesia is one such country with plenty of great food still waiting to gain global attention. All three shifts. Lara has now released a book. That's a great introduction to what intonation food is all about coconut and Somebo recipes from Indonesian. Kitchen he's out now and I met Larry to find out more. My experience of Indonesian cuisine rowing up in Sydney Australia. I felt really surrounded by Indonesian food and pots of the cultural growing up. Sorry Books Timoti Indonesia. It felt that Indonesian food culture with something that many Australians Newell they would know what nause glorious wars or Saute or or renting those kind of dishes but very familiar to millions because so many. Australians visit Bali in Indonesia on Holiday. But you know going. Further afield feather travel away from Indonesia. I realized that people don't really know understand those flavors and I do think for people here in the UK. Where where? I'm based in London? I think that there is an Indonesian community here. But there's an absence of the many restaurants. I grew up with growing up in Sydney so I think in the way that Indian cuisine and Indian restaurants in London bountiful. You'll find the same kind of thing in Sydney but here in London. I think they may be one to Indonesia and restaurants scattered across London. So I don't think has had a presence or had its moments in English food culture yet and I think that's because the community Indonesia community in England is so small. Indonesia was called Nice by the Dutch. So if you go to Holland there's a huge volume Indonesian restaurants. There that here in England you just say it and I think that might be why those flavors and those dishes on so well nine. He'll now how would you introduce Indonesian cooking to sedan? What have we been missing out on? So the Indonesian table is a really exciting ones than me and at the center of every Indonesian table is some ball which is a hot fiery Sheely that Indonesians will have at least one or two SOM- balls present at every dinner table at or at every meal time and they will eat a little bit of Samba with every bite of food. So it kind of seasons a meal in the same way that we would season food with solden pepe in the West. Almost you kind of have to think of it like that. The law so have rice or rices eating with every meal and in fact almost half. A plateful of rice will be on every Indonesian plate in Indonesia of say that if they have not eaten rice they have not eaten. So it's a really important part of their diet and also they'll be career poke which is an. Indonesian cracker is meant to stimulate the appetite. So it's kind of similar to a prone cracker there are so many different types of flavors whether they're prone or garlic squid but usually flavored with some sort of Emami element and that will always kind of convincing meal the cracking the crunching of the crew crackers but within the spice paste in the flavorings of Indonesian cuisine. You'll find garlic. Shallots Chili lemongrass gallon. Gal Jinja Cafe Lime Leaf lovely bowed punchy flavors and you'll often find those kind of mixed together in curry's with coconut milk. Call Stir fried with noodles or rice so Indonesia have a wonderful way of borrowing from other cultures and interpreting those ingredients into their own dishes so Indonesia was a huge trade route for thousand plus years. So you'll find a lot of influence of Indian spices saute was influenced by Middle Eastern kebabs noodles in soy sauce. Came from the Chinese and the Indonesian reformed. Soy Sauce added palm sugar and coconut sugar to it and created this luscious thick sweet soya sauce known as catch manus. So when you think of Indonesian food. It's very very diverse. There are six populated islands of the seventeen thousand that make up the archipelago and within each province in region. You will find different flavor profiles depending on what the external influences wherein who might have traded through that area historically so in your book. You've got a recipes. I'm wondering Helpers Arby's recipes did you have too much research to collect all these. It was a huge amount of research for me particularly because I grew up in Australia so while I grew up with Indonesian flavors. Thanks to my grandmother Paul. He lived with us for a few years. When I was little I had very strong food memories of her cooking for us when we were children. Beautiful Big platters of Bala knees chicken or heard nause goering or she'd make these lovely spiced lakes called who I peace get which kind of grilled under the oven each lay with grilled fragrant with cardamom and Ginger and cinnamon and so on. But as an adult. I moved to London nine years ago. And I was craving those flavors again so to me. The cookbook really was reconnecting with my grandmother's recipes. You know she passed away seventeen years ago. So the Cookbook. Almost started out really as a means for me to really get to know her again through her food and so. I spent quite a lot of time. Sticking with family members and extended relatives tried to kind of uncover my grandmother's recipes and what came out of that was my grandmother. Had written a couple of recipe books collected all of her recipes and these notebooks which is very rare in Indonesia because recipes are usually passed down verbally between the generations. So that was this remarkable discovery. That really kind of was the foundation of the cookbook that to me. I wanted to garner to Indonesian soil and research. There and I also wanted to share in the book. Not only my grandmother's recipes family recipes in the foods in memories that I grew up with but I also wanted to give the broader archipelago a voice and I wanted to meet locals from different parts of Indonesia Sumatra Java Bali Sulawesi and so on and meet with those locals and learn their family recipes recipes. That had belonged to their grandmother isn't so on so I spend a Lotta time traveling across Indonesia following my nose meeting a taxi driver. Who would tell me that? He's mother was a fantastic cook then. The next day I'd be in his village grinding a spice paste with his mother and learning their family recipes and it was a really remarkable experience so I spent about six months in Indonesia about two years ago collecting about three hundred recipes and then brought those recipes back to my kitchen in London and started whistling them down based on what local produce was available here in London. Things that we could actually recreated domestic kitchen and testing all those recipes and what came out of that other recipes in the book which are a collection of both my grandmothers recipes but also the recipes of these generous locals who were really so proud to share their family recipe with me. I feel it covers a lot of Indonesia but it really only scratches the surface because Indonesia is broad and diverse and food is central to everything.
Lara Lee, author ‘Coconut & Sambal’, shares one of her favourite recipes
"My name is Laura Lee and I'm the author of coconut and SOM- ball which is an Indonesian cookbook and a collection of recipes. That belong to both my grandmother who was from team. Oh originally and also the many generous Indonesian locals that I met across the Capella Go. As I raise such this book I wanted to choose for you today. A recipe that I felt could Bryson even the dullest of meals as we all? Sit at home during lockdown. Thinking about what? We're going to Cook Nick so the recipe that I will teach you how to make a tomato. Samba and somehow is a chilly. Relish that Indonesians loved to aid in fact. They can't live without Samba and they eat a little bit of Psalm. Bal with every meal so this particular. Samba is very very simple to make. And you'll need a few ingredients. I would always recommend having a food process. That will blend on hand if you want to keep life easy for you when you make Your Samba. All but the most traditional way to do it is to use a lodge and Ula Kahn. Which is an Indonesian version of mortar and pestle but you can really use birth. Start to start with. You'll need twenty long red chillies. I like to keep the seeds in but you can deceit if you have a lower chilly tolerance. But I'm all about the heat's you'll need to garlic cloves about twenty grams of Jinja. That's about four centimeters shoe. Small Banana Chamot's or four TASHA lot if you can't find shallots during lockdown than you could also use roughly about a quarter of an onion. You could also use and eighty grams of cherry tomatoes or you could also use normal red tomatoes so if you place the chilies garlic. Ginger locked and tomatoes in a food processor you can blend them to a semi fine paste and you want to try to retain a little texture. If you want to go the traditional route then please do Ryan those ingredients in your mortar and pestle and start with the hottest ingredient first and then work your way up now to place a frying pan on a medium heat and add around about four tablespoons of a neutral oil such as sunflower oil. You want to add the pace to the pan and stirred around continuously for around about ten to fifteen minutes. I'd almost even suggest saying fifteen minutes is Betta just because you want the fragrance in Roy to release from those ingredients and you want to see the liquid from the tomatoes evaporate as the pace cooking wants the Sambas dockand in thicket consistency. You can now remove it from the heat and you want to seize the Psalm Ball with one teaspoon of tamarind paste Hafa teaspoon of palm sugar or brown sugar up and a little bit of sea salt and black death up now in lockdown. You might not be able to find cameron paced so a great substitute would be one teaspoon of lime or lemon juice mixed we have one teaspoon of Brown's show got you can also substitute the brown sugar palm sugar with normal sugar. It's a very forgiving recipe and do season with a little bit more. Tamarind and she'll get to taste as you see fit what you can eat ball with his anything and everything. I will dollop it onto pizza. Omelettes fried rice noodles. Anything GOES WITH SAMBA. And what is wonderful about? It is that it keeps in the fridge for a roundabout awake or you can freeze it for up to three months. So it's a really versatile condiment and it will transport your taste buds to

"The actual job is. Okay. I've I've seen things where you know, people describe something. And it's like, you know, my job that idea. I was a client solutions executive what the heck does that mean? Nobody that IBM is. No, right. So you don't wanna put yourself in a position where putting the job title the way you actually name the job description that or the jobs high. It'll is not conducive to finding the right person. Because I'm not sure that I'm an executive. I'm not sure if I'm a client solutions. What is that? Okay. It's a sales person is what it is. That's what my job was. But you know, again, the title obscured it so be careful make it simple. Keep it straightforward. Don't do anything to cutesy unless the whole thing of your brand. I mean, one of my what am I great friends here runs a business called by girlie party? And she does spa and diva parties for you know, for the young girl set. Right. So it may make sense for her to have something kind of cutesy in her title because that's so much part of her brand. So she needs someone that maybe can step into the role of Biba or Princess, right? She literally does higher princesses become into these parties. It'd be you know, one of the Disney princesses for whatever. So that you know, that makes sense. But I'm just saying make sure that it works and that it's the right choice. If that's what you're doing for your business. So be straightforward in that job title. The other thing is when you write the job description, again, I'm always going to choose something that is pragmatic, but I don't want you to be boring. Okay. If you write up a job description that sounds like somebody, you know, at, you know, at a hospital wrote it up and trying to cover the legal basis. I don't know that that's going to help you stand out in attracting, the ideal client are the ideal employees. Okay. You don't wanna be boring. You want to you know, you want it to be exciting and compelling, and that you want someone to keep reading. So you know, there again with social media. There's so many things you can do with great graphics and different fonts and headlines and things like that you can make it really fun to read. So you wanna just because of the fact that the the job description needs to highlight things. Like, the basic skills they need to cover. But here the piece that I really want to highlight for your job description. You don't want to just, you know, list the skills like the front desk person needs to answer the phones answer emails handle customer satisfaction. Questions. Handle onsite questions. You know, blah, blah. You don't want to just list, the basic stuff. You also want to include something that features that communicates. The message about your customer experience you or your business experience. Okay. So saying things like what kind of what kind of team? Do you have there? What kind of how are you attracting this person to fit in with the brand to fit in with the culture at your job? Okay. We want that to come across really clearly because that's important. So for some of the like the daily method clients that I work with. Their brand is very warm, very inviting very empowering very positive thinking. Okay. So you wanna include pieces about that and your job description because the we there's a quote that goes around all the time says, you know, we we hire for skills and we fire for personality. And that's what I wanna get at right now. I want you to really think about that with your job description with the whole way you go about trying to look for a new teammate think about that. Quote, we hire for skills we fire for personality, and the reason for that is we often think that if someone has the various skills, and does the various, you know, can do the very skills required in the job that they're likely to be a good candidate. You might not be attracting the right candidate. If that's all you look for what kind of personality does this person need to have how does that fit with your brand we need to be aware of that? And cognizant of that and attract. That. Not using a really solid job descriptions think about warm positive friendly. You know, you want to add some of those features some of those soft skills someone who can make customers feel at ease. You wanna add some of that into your job description? But at the, you know, not to make them too wordy, but don't just make sure that your job description and that you're hunt for the perfect employee isn't only about the hard skills. It needs to include some of those soft skills like the personality attributes this person, do they need to be a self starter someone that you don't give a lot of direction to or are you pretty aware that you're really Taipei, and you really want someone who's gonna follow your instructions, you don't want someone who keeps reinventing the wheel and coming up with interesting ways to do things because you've already figured out how to do that. No that about yourself and write something in there about that description because if you know, if if I am not a self starter, and I read in your job description that you're looking for a self starter that may help me realize that that's not the best fit for me. Some people don't have that self awareness. But some people do so I would give it a shot and just tell you that part of your job as the boss and the person trying to attract that best fit for your company is to include some of those soft skills and personality attributes that will help your people know that they've found the right company to work for and it'll help pass your brand and your image on. Okay. 'cause that's really important for you. And that brings me to the next one. So using your voice being the real true voice of your company. You know, you wanna stand out in your ad you want it to have a great job title. That's very clear you wanna have a job description that is inclusive of. Soft skills as well as the hard skills. You want to drop jargon. You don't want to use. You know words, you only use the business, and nobody else knows what it means. Don't do jargon. Okay. What you want to is what you wanna do convey your brand. So is your, you know, if you're running a spa, and this is just going to be stereotypical just for an example. But you know, maybe you wanna convey something in your brand. That's really calm, really easy. Okay. So you wanna use language, and you want to write a job description that reflects that voice of your brand if like my client, and my friend that I was telling you about that has the, you know, girlie parties the diva and Princess parties, she needs to be a bit more playful, right? She needs to be hip. She needs to be fun. Maybe a little young that that language is part of her brand that is the voice of brands. So that's going to be important for her to convey. That if you you know, when I first came out with my very first website as a coach, you know, I was just coming from having worked at idea. And I tell you my very first website. It looked like IBM it sounded like IBM. It was very sincere is very much about my expertise is very much about my competency. You know? And you hear me dropping my voice, even right there. So be a real honest. Make sure that your voice does reflect your brand. Okay. Use language in your job description that will help people get a feel for your brand when they come a fly for the job just just in reading that job description and title, these are nuances guys, but I can tell you if you've had the experience of having to hire someone for your company, and then they you know, maybe they just weren't the right fit and struggled with that. You've wondered why oftentimes these little pieces about how we think. About the job. How we conceptualize the job that we're trying to hire for and then how we promote it that caused us to attract an employee that is not ideal. Okay. So that's what I wanna give you today. I wanted to give some of those nuanced pieces to help you understand what you're putting out there and how that will help attract the right people to you. When you're ready to hire. I hope that helps I hope that you don't have to hire for skill than fire for personality. I hope this will help you attract the right personality for the job that you need to get done. Okay. So that's it for today. Guys. I hope you have a great experiencing hiring some help over the holidays. A lot of people.

Welcome to the show guys continuing with our business basics series today. We're talking about crafting a really awesome job description to get the right person in the door for your company. And the reason I bring this up because I one of the things that I do end up coaching a lot on our some some of the challenging things that we go through as entrepreneurs and business owners, which includes some of the hiring and firing stuff. Right. Like it. When we think of all the things that we need to know to be a successful business owner being a good boss being a good recruiter. You know, some of those probably were never at the forefront of our mind when we started the company, we started we thought, oh, we'll let me create a great product. Let me offer a great service. I've got to be you know, the best at that. Then, you know, things like how do I get the word out? How do I find my client? So we focus a lot. On marketing, and you know, getting ourselves out to the people that need to find us and work with us. Right. But it's it's hard sometimes to to get your head around. What it takes to be good at all of these different areas of your job. And it's hard even harder. When you know figuring out for yourself as one thing, but then turning around and hiring people that are now going to be an extension of you and help represent your brand to your clients. I mean, gosh that can feel all kinds of scary and difficult when you're not confident that you're even getting the right people in right? So I've been talking with clients lately of just about this like, they, you know, they have small businesses and everybody that they bring in is going to be like a family member, you know, to some extent now that may not be true necessarily for you and your business. Maybe you're just looking at trying to hire a copywriter or a new website designer or. You know, maybe you're looking for someone to handle front desk phone calls or customer service calls for whatever it is. If you're trying to attract someone that is going to become part of your business and part of your family business your business family, then it's it is gonna feel a bit intimidating. If you don't even know how to go about finding that person. And that that is exactly what people say to me all the time. They are. I don't even know how to begin looking for this person. And so there are a lot of different ways. And I wanna dress some of that on this session today on this episode today, and one of the things we need to think about the different ways that we do reach out. And we do attract a lot of us are using you know, there there's certainly advertising through our pages on Facebook or Instagram. There's indeed dot com. There's linked down there all these different ways out there word of mouth, but no matter which medium or which message board or job board, you decide to. Put out there on you have to figure out how to communicate what it is you actually want. Okay. That is the first big step. And I think it's one of the most challenging we may think about gosh. I don't know where to find the people. But if you haven't put enough time into crafting a good job description to really attract the kind of person, you want no matter what medium you use the chances are going to be slim that you don't get the right person. Okay. So let's think through that a little bit. So what goes into a good job description? There's a good question. And that's the right one to start with, you know, there are there are lots of ways to do this. The biggest thing I would want to say, you know, the biggest tips, I wanna give you are just some of the, you know, the keep it simple type stuff. You don't want to be you know, the way you described the job make sure that you are are being very clear. I always choose. Clear over something cutesy or fun. God almighty, the days of using the word diva as a description for everything are I think we're passes. Now. Thank god. If you're looking for someone to be, you know, a front desk manager front desk or -ception, as you know, calling that person the, you know, front desk diva. I don't know if that's necessarily communicating what you want. I would rather the title be pragmatic and straightforward than being too cutesy. Or or even something that obscures what the

"Client who's a photographer. She does wedding and family, and baby photographs right and engagement photos and stuff like that. It's a seasonal business. She has a boom time in bus time. And she has learned that if she takes like couples engagement photos that she can go ahead and put them on a payment plan for their wedding photos, say the weddings a year off or six months off. She'll let them pay over time rather than having to pay, you know, half down now and then half the day of the wedding, or whatever she wants paying monthly installments, and that helps keep her income up on a monthly basis, and it helps her customers out because they get to pay overtime. So offer some alternatives to payment. If you've got some existing customers in good standing, they appreciate that. Even if it's not something they take you up on. They appreciate the offer. This next one number four is really obvious. But it's important provide great customer service. Okay. Like, I said that if you go in and you try to reach out and ask a question or resolve a problem that you have with a product or service, and you can't even get through to the company or you get dropped or you know, sent around or put off by crappy response on a phone. It's going to resonate if someone doesn't feel like they got treated, well, when they purchase something we remember that we also remember if we got treated really, well, you know, if if every time I walk into your store, somebody greets me said.

But let's talk about why so many of us just set a price and forget, it that's part of the reason just because it's about numbers, and we just kinda want to decide on something and be done with it. So let's say you are selling some, you know, let's say you have a promotional products company like one of my clients, and you decide that these, you know, quarters that put he's they are going to be, you know, twenty dollars. And that's that's the price. You're happy that you can offer a good valuable. You said that price and for the next ten years. That's how much they cost. Well, you're not taking into consideration. Whether or not demands or for that product, go up or whether you're cost your expenses. Where are you sourcing that hoodie from it could change over the years vendors, come and go, and it could be that something that you were offering at a price point of twenty dollars. Which was you know, at some point, let's say a great profit margin for you. Maybe it's a fifty percent markup or forty percent markup over your wholesale cost. That's awesome. Right. But over the years, if you're wholesale price goes up because of a change in vendors or a kind of change in product or quality, or whatever it is changes things, you may be losing money because you've got a much slimmer profit margin than you realize if you never adjust your price when your cost change. Okay. That's one example, if you've got a service, and like I said in this other podcasts, they were talking about Uber and how Uber the car service. It one of the things that it does is for instance, on New Year's Eve when there is a lot of partying and partaking of alcohol and such in the evening. People are very very reliant upon services like Cavs and Uber lift and whatever because they don't want to drink and drive, right? They wanna go out and have a good time. But not have to worry. About getting home responsibly and safely. So with that that surge in demand. Uber has raised its prices and said, you know, listen on New Year's Eve cars are going to cost more, but you can have peace of mind, if you're willing to pay higher price, you can have peace of mind that you will get a car. It's just not going to be at the lower rate that we normally offer. So yes, it's more expensive. We're open and honest about being more expensive. You're not just paying for the car ride home. You're paying for the peace of mind that you can actually get a car when you want it because how many times have you come out of a restaurant or a bar some big event at, you know, an entertainment venue, a concert or something and stood there with your phone circling circling circling trying to get an Uber, but there were not available because everybody else right next to you was also calling Newburgh at the same time. So Hoover created that or they didn't create idea. Uber introduced for its business surge pricing, which is a form of dynamic pricing. Thing to say that yes, we are going to do our best to meet your demand. But one of the we're gonna do is we're going to get rid of a lower price point that is going to make some people choose a different option, and those people that use a different option, they free up some of these cars for those of you who are willing to pay a higher price and at the end of the day when it feels a little bit maybe strange to raise the price for some of us a lot again, I work a lot of people that feel strange if it's hard to do what actually happens in that situation. Is that Uber is more giving more of a guarantee more piece of not a guarantee, but more peace of mind and managing the demand that they know it's going to happen for their services and helping meet that demand. So the customers that are willing to pay more. They get more. They get peace of mind and a ride home right without being out there in the cold all night, those who don't wanna pay who are going. You know, what that's a ridiculous price point. I would never pay that. That's not worth it. I'll just try it some other way to get home. You know, then they don't have to pay it. And they may be ticked off at Uber. In fact, I think the study that it was saying a lot of people were very upset. How could you do this? How could they do this increase search in their pricing? But the point is that it actually met demand better. And it serves the clients who use the service better. And that's something I want you to think about for your business to that. Sometimes raising the price in order to make sure that you know, as something becomes more scarce. Let's say you only have a certain amount of seats available in a workshop. Let's say that you only have a certain amount of of something you're selling as it becomes more rare. You can increase your pricing, and I've certainly done that my coaching business over the years when I have a full client load, and I have a wait list. Well. Well, you know, if I you know, if I want to increase the prices on my coaching services because something's going crazy. Everybody's drinking the same thing at thank Kuwait. And everybody's looking for coaching at the same time. Well, I can increase the manned and raise that price. And that's, you know, a service to me to help manage the demand, and it's, you know, going to help me bring in more money while I'm dealing with all these clients. And also if I have extra space available if I have several clients completing at the same time, and I have extra space that I need to fill. I may drop rates. So that I can get some new people in the door. I may drop rates for a month or two and say, hey, come on and start out with me at this lower price. It's a great deal because I've got my schedule, and I need to fill it. So I'm willing to do it at a discounted rate. So there can be really good reasons for being lowering the price. What am I friends? I think this is an interesting example, one of my friends, her son, her son mind, you fifteen year old son got into. To a business with her where they saw the demand for American Girl dolls, and, you know, American Girl dolls, they if if, you know anything about them, which I didn't until I had a daughter, and then I learned a little they release a new American Girl doll of the year every year, I think and they only make it available for a short amount of time. And then after short amount of time they no longer sell that doll. Well, they got really smart this friend of mine and her fifteen year old boy scout son, and they would buy several of the new American Girl doll released each year. And they would just buy them and set up in the attic, and then they would wait until a few months after sales had closed, and there was no availability. You couldn't get it new anymore from American Girl, and they would turn around and sell it for a higher price than American Girl was selling it for because now it is a rare item there is established a man for. For it. And they you know were able to just hang onto it for a little bit and sell it. And you know, so that kind of pricing that kind of dynamic pricing. They they would sell it. When they you know, let's say they bought five dollars, and these are like hundred something dollar dolls each let's about five of them. Well, when they had five to sell the price might be, you know, at a certain point. And then when they had only, you know, if they were selling really quickly, and they only had two they might raise the price even higher because it's becoming more rare. Or conversely, let's say when they had when they bought five of the dolls, and for some reason, they weren't selling very quickly. They might lower the price in order to get them out in the market and get them out of their attic. Right. So you can change adjust pricing in your business because it makes sense to do to do. So it makes sense not only for you. But it can also make really good sense for your customers. For instance, thinking again about how Uber's surge pricing made available cars for people who wanted to go home on years eve. Well, that's similar to what some of my studio clients are talking about considering doing and their businesses, which is let's say the the most popular workout class at one of the studios is at six AM and six AM the class. You know, it can only hold so many so many students for each class. Okay. So let's say the maximum class amount of students in the class is twenty students. Well, this this studio is very popular very successful. And that six AM slot is absolutely the hottest Amand, and there may be twenty students in class. But then there may be ten or fifteen people on the wait list to get into the class. Okay. So the studio owner is considering raising the price of that class. If you want a Gary. Antiques spot versus you know, are creating different sort of price point. So that the people that the six AM has to be the class. They get to they can reserve that spot. They know they can get it. There's no question there will be in the class, and for some people it'd be like, no, I'm not paying more for this class. I'll just go to one of the later classes. Okay. But that's that exact kind of pricing don't can help make things available in the business. Make rooms and slots available in the studio for that class for people who really have to be there at that time. It makes it work for them. And it allows other people to self select say, yeah, you know, this this more expensive classes not necessary. I go somewhere else. I could go later. You know, I could go to the the eleven o'clock. I could work that my schedule. No problem. Okay. So that's what I've got for today. I want you to think about that and determine whether or not dynamic pricing might be a good idea for you to is it something that could help you is something that can help your clients. Is it something that would make things possible in your business that aren't possible right now? about coach take care. No

Busy solution show. Your host Laura Galloway coach so excited to be here with you today. I have another great episode for you in my business basic series. This one is all about setting expectations for yourself. You know realistic ones, you guys, I it's so funny, again, this is the whole purpose of the business basic series that I've been doing recently is just remember some of the things that are so fundamental that we we lose sight of them. And when I'm working with a client who tells me, she feels you know, like, maybe she's being really successful. But she feels like she may have beard off course. And you know, she made she's feeling like there's a struggle between some of her priorities in a way that there hasn't been before a lot. Times this kind of stuff that we're talking about in the series is why okay why we're feeling feeling. So you know, you hear me talk a lot about setting expectations for other people. Okay. 'cause this is, you know, one of those fundamental things as as a business owner, and as a mom and an entrepreneur and a family manager at a partner, a spouse, you know, sister friend neighbor, we juggle a lot of rule of roles and responsibilities. Right. I mean, they're just they're so many people that need a lot of the things that we offer. And a lot of the things that we take responsibility for and setting some boundaries around what you will do and what matters most and then outwardly communicating expectations that others can have of you. And that you have them is so important, right? Because if we don't do that, and we wind up with everybody making demands on our time. All the time and feeling like, we're never successful. And like we can never get anything done because we're always just so busy. So that's that's the importance of communicating and outward expectation, but equally important is communicating to our selves these internal expectations. And that's what I wanna talk to you more about today because it it's kind of funny. A lot of us aren't not really great at setting expectations for ourselves. A lot of us are not great at setting goals for ourselves. We're not as we talk about smart goals for business and all that. But the fact is just even in the internal promises we make ourselves the things that only we here in our own heads. We might not be doing very good job of setting those bacterium's. That's where this today. I want to help you get better at that. Because a lot of important ramifications. If you don't do this. Well, either. Okay. So let's think about this for a minute. Like, I always whenever I start with the coaching challenge. And this is something I literally just hung out with a new client with about half an hour ago discussing it came up here and. Start out working with somebody. I always I look around and try and understand how they are honoring the priorities that they have of selves how is their life working out? There. Some reason they've hired me. What is it that they're trying to do better? What is it? They're trying to do differently. What changed in any bring about? And oftentimes this is a place for me to look, and I this client that was just working with us. Okay. Let's talk a little bit about your business and your home life. And and how these two are working. Well, and it turns out hurt businesses going really well. In fact, it has grown again, and again, and again, she added on different lines of business to her previous and most established business model. She has quote, unquote, followed the money, right? And you know, done what hurt arket and her demographic needed from her and was willing to pay her for which is awesome.

When we get to do a little rebranding and refreshing of our of our stuff. So I hope you like it a love your feedback. Hey, welcome to a very rainy Wednesday here in Michigan. You know, the weather always affects me, so I have to give you that update met forecast. I get it for my father who always calls me with the forecast from Georgia or South Carolina the cracks me up anyway. So today, we're going on with our business basic stuff, and what's more basic than you know, getting paid right? We're not in this business to do things for free. It's not a business if we do it for free. So when you are an entrepreneur, and you put your blood, sweat and tears into the products and services that you offer for a living to your clients, and your customers, you certainly want to get money in return. And you know, as as exciting and rewarding is is to get paid for the stuff. We do it is it hurts so much when you find that you have yourself a situation where you've delivered the goods, but you haven't gotten paid. So I have been through this. Very painful painful experience, and I wanted to share with you some tips that I found in the years of being a business owner and in the years, I've spent coaching business owners to help avoid this dreadful situation when a client won't pay. So first of all, let's just kind of talk through you know, how this happens. Right. So let's say I mean, if you are someone who sells products for a living, you know, some of that can be really nice and easy. If you if you're doing a web store, whatever things have to be paid up front right before you ship them out. Right. If they're going through an e commerce site on your website and they've got a shopping cart. Well, of course, things aren't going to go anywhere until they pay the money, right? If you have bricks and mortar type business, you know, client comes in and before they walk out of the store if they don't want bells and whistles ringing because of theft, then they're gonna pay you when they walk out the store all straightforward, right? What can happen though, is a a lot of different things, especially in the services business. So if you run a service type business, you might run into something that one of my clients who runs a PR and marketing company in Wisconsin went through recently. And she told me Laura, she said, I'm I'm so frustrated because you know, this client, this is one of my biggest clients, I've been working with them for years, but there's been a change in management, and they you know, the the new manager. Whoever is the decision maker is is apparently just not, you know, taking my invoice as a priority, and this invoice has been outstanding for maybe sixty days or something. I can't remember how long she said. But it's way overdue. They've had plenty of time at now done so and oh my goodness. The heartache because you know, what it was worth about six thousand dollars. So. So my client is waiting on receivable of six thousand dollars. That is for work that she has done in. Oh, by the way to add insult injury. This client also under charges and over delivers which I'm working with her on. But you know, she's she's done above and beyond the work that she needed to do, and she's not getting paid for it. And you know, as as a small business owner what happens when you plan on getting paid and you budget for getting paid. And then it doesn't happen. It can throw you into some serious cash flow challenges. Right. Okay. 'cause you have things you have to pay you have to spend money on resources on freelancers on the help that you have on people in your team payroll, rent utilities, all kinds of stuff, right? You've got to pay those things, and you can't just not pay them. So if you're relying on income, which I know you are from your clients for the work that you're doing it can be very challenging. To come up with that money when you are six thousand dollars in the hole over what you budgeted, okay, or under what you budget, this sort of thing happens a lot and this this is a particularly challenging situation that my client isn't right now. And what it's going to take is some very specific sitdown conversations. And I've, you know, talked her through recommended a meeting specifically with the the former some of the former not former some of the people that she still works with who are not the decision makers necessarily at the at the paycheck writers, but they are the influencers to the new people that she has. And I've suggested that she go in and have a specific meeting that she calls schedule. It ahead of time and make it specific only to the discussion of the billing and the contract. So it's not to be rolled in with any of the other ongoing meetings. They have every week. So that's how she's handling it. Now. Again, that's a specific example. But what what it shows? I mean, I think a six thousand dollar deficit of what she is due to be paid is is I mean, I think everybody can relate to how painful that is. Right. That's just a huge amount of money for an entrepreneur. Now that said what I want to spend time on this podcast today. Talking about is how to avoid getting into that situation in the first place. Okay. Because it is so much harder to collect money. Once the goods and services have been delivered. Your leverage is very little if you have not yet delivered the goodness services. Of course, you have greater leverage. Right. I know I'm not speaking anything genius here. But I just wanna have you think through this. Okay. Because when I do coach clients around pricing and invoicing and getting people to pay on time. I find that. It always starts the the problem always starts at the very front end of this process. Where the clients should have made some specific process to avoid these things in the first place. Okay. So it's a basic assumption. But you may need to check your process and see if this is something you haven't place. All right. So number one, the very first thing you need to do to avoid getting yourself into a situation where client won't pay. You is to make sure that you write it out in an agreement. What you are agreeing to sell them the scope of that. And I mean be very specific you may need to have bullet points. Okay. You don't have to have some legal contract. You know, that you get a lawyer to review every time, although sometimes that is necessary depending on the situation, but by and large you need to have a standard agreement that you send to your clients that describe the scope of work. Okay. And that describes the cost for that scope of work there also needs to be something in your agreement that. Says for you know, for work beyond this project for changes beyond what we have agreed to hear for additional things. These things may be purchased at this rate or discuss separately at another time outside this contract. This contract only covers this project. We have agreed upon. Okay. So you need to have very clear boundaries around the scope of work and keep asking questions of your client to make sure that you guys do get to agreement in some level of detail about what the the work is that you are providing every single time. I take on a new client. They do have to sign by coaching agreement which is not difficult to sign his not hard. But it says, I, you know, I agree to pay, you know, at the beginning of the month for the services, rendered, Laura is on a retainer, it's this amount per month. And I will pay that you know on a monthly basis until. We both agree to stop. That's it. Right. And it says exactly the amount. And it says what day in time we're meeting on. And how those meetings will be each week yada, yada. Okay. So that's still it out. Very simple. Because what I sell is very simple. Okay. But that's the first piece you've got to have that established. And I can't tell you how over the years I've had lots of clients who have felt really like embarrassed or show or like a bully because they don't want to they they don't wanna feel like a Lear or barris to have to ask their clients to sign something like an agreement or scope of work document or a contract or whatever it is a Bill of sale. They in fact, they they would rather it seems operate without these things and writing and guys I'm just gonna tell you straight out every single thing that we do and the rest of the world we sign off on things all the time. Whether it's with your cable company, whether it's you know, signing on the bottom line when you buy groceries at. The grocery store you sign some sort of green that is an agreement pay. Okay. So this is something we do everywhere else in our lives don't be afraid to establish this expected as a business owner. All right. That's step number one establish it write it down have both parties signed it and agree to it. And then you stick to do not go beyond the scope of work and keep doing free work beyond what you've agreed to. And then expect that they're going to pay you for it. Nope. You have to manage yourself to the requirements and the expectations of that project that you sold your client. Okay. Secondly. And this is whether you do business online offline whether you sell products or services for the love of God, make it easy for your customers to pay you. You've gotta make it easy. And I mean, I for that reason don't accept checks, and I don't accept cash 'cause most of the people I work with are not local to me. They're all. Over the place. Okay. So waiting for somebody to send me a check in the mail. No No. Thank you waiting for some cash for somebody to drive on my house, local and drop it off. No. Uh-huh. Everything. I do I run through online billing. I have I set things up through pay pal? I use as my merchant. I used to have a really fancy pay pal store that I paid premium money for I don't do that anymore. I just use pay pal as my processing as my payment processor. So you can pay via a pay pal account or if you don't have one that's fine. You can pay through your checking account or through a credit card. It's so easy. And yes, they take a small payment out for that a small. I don't know what it one and a half percent or something if whatever I'm getting paid. But that's fine. That is the cost of doing business and it ensures that when I go to deliver coaching. I know that my client has has paid. Because pay pal has verified that payment. I know the money is in my account, and I didn't have to even send them multiple invoice. They Bill my clients every single month. Okay. So that kind of stuff is super helpful. If you can set up an easy way to get paid. If you can always, you know for services, I recommend you do at least part of it up front of very, you know, I have like I'm kept on retainer. So people pay me up front for the whole coaching. But if you're like when I do a speaking gig, I require half of the agreed upon price to be paid up front within you know, like a week of the voice that I sent them. And then the other half is paid once I complete the speaking gig or the workshop or whatever it is. They're paying you to do so half up front half later is a very good way to do things. Those are the biggest points. I can tell you right there if you're operating without any boundaries around the kind of work that you've agreed to do with someone. It is very likely that you will be stuck in a situation where you're thinking you're getting paid for something. And a client is thinking, it's covered. And therefore, you may have a discrepancy and not get paid what you're expecting to get paid. And that will hurt do not put yourself in that situation. And the second thing is if you are chasing around checks and cash or otherwise making it hard for your customers to pay you rather than making it super easy online with square or pay pal or the various other payment processors that are out there. You're making it difficult for yourself to be a profitable business owner find a way to make it easy. Make sure you get it up front. Make sure you communicate that these are the boundaries around what we're going to do make sure you have something in place and signed by both parties. So everybody is aware, and then you will not be forced to be chasing money after the fact that you absolutely deserve. All right. So guys that is. Is my advice to you get yourself out of that situation. If you have more questions for me in specific examples, I this is a big topic. And I would love to share it with you. I'd love to answer it.

I am your host Laura Galloway this coach and co author of mums me business guide to creating successful company and a happy life entrepreneur. Hello, everybody. And I am a day late. I was supposed to do the show yesterday at needed to move it out because God bless flexability. Let's just say that right? Part of why we do this job why we are not working in corporate America and working for someone else's because we do need the flexibility that comes along with, you know, running a family and running a business. And that's where I was yesterday. I couldn't get one more thing done. So I'm very excited to be here today, and I'm excited about the topic at hand because again, this is a really heated conversation. I was having with client last week. She was telling me so says today's episode is all about does your partner understand why you work. This is one of those business basic things that I you know, it's it's I go for a while. And I will get you know, focused on coaching, my clients around certain things or things become entrenched. They'll ask questions they'll have challenges or wanted discuss certain things, and you know, we'll do that. And then after a while some of the things some of these topics business basics come up again. And again and remind me that. Oh, yeah. Yeah. You know, what I I haven't brought this up in a while. And the partnership discussion, the, you know, my husband doesn't understand why I work or my partner expects certain things out of me that I think are unrealistic or just general partnerships really frustrated with me working all the time. That's a big one or my partner really wants me to be making more money than I am. So these are these are the sorts of conversations I've been having with my clients that have created today's discussion. So let's dig right in. Okay. Because here's the thing when it comes to, you know, working right? When we talk about the word work. We most of us are programmed to view work through the lens of going to work for someone else and getting a paycheck every week every couple of weeks every month, whatever it is. But it's kind of handled that way, it's, you know, somebody else's responsible for paying us. Somebody. Else's responsible for telling us what to do somebody else's responsible for determining the hours, we work and the amount we get compensated for it somebody else's responsible for telling us when we are on track or not on track. Right. So all these things are generally handed by somebody else. But when you're in business for yourself, you've got to manage all these pieces. Oh, by the way, on top of doing all the stuff to get the things out the door to make the money that you need to get made. Right. But you have to have an incredible amount of self manage and to our spouses and partners. You know, those of our and those in our world who are closest to us, and who may get to see, you know, the good the bag and the bad and the ugly of our work life really up close and even under a microscope. Sometimes. Okay. It might not look so great. In fact, it probably doesn't look so great all the time. Because you know, if you think about it again going back to the you know, the way that most of us are. Conditioned to seeing work. You know, we don't get to see those inner workings and details the decisions being made the trade off the sacrifices, the the games the glory. All these different things. We don't really get to see that. We just go in clock and do our job, you know, people do their thing. Get our paycheck. Go home. Do it again the next day. Right. And that that lack of transparency into work life is not a luxury I'll say putting quote around the world luxury not something that we have when we are working our own business from home or even if we're running it in an office chances. Are you come home at the end of the day? And you talk about your work with your partner. Right. So they hear it. And if you're stressed out about anything in life, usually tell your partner, right? And if you've had a really good day, and you're super excited about so that you tell your partner, and if you're worried about something I mean, it's just like we give our. Partner all this emotion. And they can that give them a window through which they may scrutinize the work that we're doing and a lot of times, you know, I I'll play it all day. There's so many easier ways to make money than being an entrepreneur. Right. And you maybe not really happy to hear that. But most of us did not go into this work because it looked like easy money. Not the fact being an entrepreneur generally is not easy money. And if somebody's promising you that I go search up whether or not there scammer on Google. That's what I would say. Okay. Probably have something to gain at your loss. If you believe that. All right. So being an entrepreneur is not the easiest way to make money. It's a hard way to make money. And yet we choose to do it right lie. Why do we choose to do it? Why choose to take all of this on all the decision making all the all the stress all the responsibility. Why take all of that on in the first place. You know, it's time for you to make sure you can answer that question because that's what your partner needs to hear your partner most likely, I don't know your personal situation. But I'm just going to venture to say 'cause I'm pas. Thinker. Your partner is not a jerk. Your partner is not a moron. Your partner is not unreasonable. Your partner is just looking at what you do for work and comparing it to what other people your partner knows do for work. And they may be looking at you going. Oh, gosh, you're doing all this work, and I'm making any money or you're not making enough money or it doesn't matter. How much money are making you're working too hard. And it's taken away from our household or it's not even about the money. It's about the stress level. You never seem calm and relaxed anymore. You're always stressed and your partner may be looking at that going. You know, what I don't like who you are. Because of how this job makes you be right? I don't like the person this job makes you I don't, you know, maybe they're thinking. Yeah. I agreed to this. And we spent a lot of our savings. To to, you know, get you started in this business and agreement you know, you should have been making that money back, and you should be profitable. And should have paid it back. And, you know, having a lot more income than you do now. And you know, it's great that you love this work, but our family needs a certain amount of income. And you're not providing it, right? I could go on and on with examples because like I said these come from real life conversations.

I've resisted it forever. But my marketing directors awesome, and she's gonna make that stuff happened for me. And we're gonna get some new music for intro Alto, very excited about that. And we're going to be doing some on air coaching for some of you. So, hey, by the way, if you've been looking for a really good way to get some free coaching, and don't you know know, how to do it. 'cause I know it's hard sometimes to be able to get the coaching you need when you need it when you are cash strapped. You should apply to be one of the on air coaching clients on my show. So reach out to me, Laura. At mom is coach dot com or go to my website, mom, coach dot com and you'll see a link for the podcast there. And you can reach out that way either way. I hope you'll connect with me if you are someone who could use a little coaching and doesn't mind sharing what you're learning and doing and challenge with on the air. Okay. That said I'm excited to jump into today's topic. Because as always this comes from another one of my awesome coaching clients that I spoke with about this. I guess it was earlier this week. We were talking about you know, when it comes time to expand. When you want to add on people in your business, and this goes for whether or not you, you know, many of my clients are the daily method studios all over US, and Canada, and Mexico, and you know, they hire employees to come in and and the front desk or new teachers to teach the classes or childcare staff or operation, staff, marketing, whatever, but this also goes for. All of you out there who like me, don't hire real im- say real with quotation marks real people who come sit in a real space, but maybe higher virtual assistance. Okay. And virtual person may mean, maybe someone who works for you from far. But you know, one of the biggest questions I get all the time as Lara. How do I find good people? And you know, I have had a lot of coaching hours spent with some of my clients who have not attracted the right person when they decided they needed help. You know, they've reached out they've gotten to the point where they've been in a pretty desperate need for the help. And then when they finally get it the help, isn't right. There are things that go wrong. It doesn't work out. And then they're stuck with a very con- confronting thing. If they thought hiring hard, firings, even harder. And it is something, you know, you want to avoid getting into a relate. Ship with someone hiring someone to help you get things done in your business that you really need. How getting done right like, otherwise, let's face it. You would not be reaching out and being willing to open your pocketbook and spend this money if you could avoid it, otherwise, right? 'cause we're entrepreneurs were strappy. We're going to we're scrappy we're going to ourselves up. Our bootstraps if we can possibly do it and do what we can do ourselves. But when you can't do that you cannot afford to waste time hiring people. So how do you do it? How do you hire the right people well into a couple of different podcast episodes on this topic, and this one and this one I wanna talk about the actual interview. Okay. Because this is again, this is just what I happened to be coaching client on earlier this week. So when you get into an interview, I mean, let's there's yeah. There are other pieces like, you know, writing out a proper job description describing the job in such a way. So as to attract the right people in the first place. And to help that some of the people that you don't think would be a good fit for the job to help themselves selecting realized that they might not be the right one. So there's definitely some work that has to be done beforehand in the job description, and and the promotion of that job posting process, and I will cover that in another episode. But for today, let's say that you've done all that you've been advertising you've gotten a few responders. And you're ready to start doing some interviews. Okay. And how do you do that? Well, well, first and foremost, as I do with anything if you wanna know how to do something the first step is to focus on what you want. So what results do you want so much of this is the this mindset work that we have to do, and this internal work that we have to do in order to figure out how to get what we most want. Okay. How to present ourselves in a way to get the things that we want. So it starts with you. Okay. One of the most important. Things that you can explain in an interview is well there there let's talk about their their couple of different things. So before I tell you the most reporter went a couple of different things every job description, and every you know, when we're trying to find a suitable candidate for a job we have to describe what skills they need like literally. What are they going to be doing? Okay. So if this is a person who has to, you know, for childcare if this kind of pick up kids and corral kids, and whatever they've gotta have a skill set related to that that shows that they're reliable, trustworthy that. They're good with kids. They don't get rattled by crying that they can handle picking up and putting down sizable toddlers. Okay because that's a requirement. If you can't do any heavy lifting or if you're, you know, nerves get rattled by screaming people this probably the job for you. Right. So the skill set is absolutely something you've got to talk about. Out. So in the interview, you want to be you want to be very clear and ask for people to describe their past experience that specifically relates to this job. So if it is for childcare, you're going to get them to tell you tell me about your last, you know, two or three jobs, tell me about your last two or three clients that you worked with or families that you worked for what were your responsibilities. Okay. And your job as the interviewer is to ask questions to get them to talk. Because it's not only important what they say. It's how they say it, it's how they talk while they're talking you're going to be whether or not you're aware of this. You will be picking up on their body language. You'll be picking up on some of their idiosyncrasies. You know, do they have a sense of humor? Are they saw spoken? Are they assertive are they very dry are? They're very warm. Are they go getter are they? They talking nonstop. And not letting you get a word in edgewise. Are they so shy? They can barely get a word out of their mouth. All of those are the really important pieces that the interview the soft skills are what's going to come out in the interview that are so important to watch for as a business owner. Okay. Because at the end of the day, the chemistry you feel with this person the personality

Hey, how are you? Happy almost end of summer. Happy end of summer for many of you. I know across the country already had kids. Go back to school here in Michigan. We are holding out one final week and the kids go back on Tuesday. So we've got our last summer harass scheduled. We're gonna have a fun little vacation up in the woods. Go to some fun outdoor stuff to finish off the year. And well, as we start tightening our belt and looking forward to what comes next when we go back to school and back to work and really hit it hard. Again. I thought it would be a really good time to talk about some some of the business basics that really get overlooked a lot. And that is how to make sense of some of your business financial. Now, the thing is when I whenever I take on a new client and I start working with her. You know, pretty soon we, you know, we go over things like their priorities and their vision of success. And what it is that they want to you know, work with me on what they want to figure out. You know, what they want to you know, maximize the coaching time to get on. But very shortly there after the topic of your business finances comes up, and I gotta tell you when I I would say nine times out of ten. This is a scary question for the clients that I work with they are not comfortable talking about their finances. They know that they're in business and they're in business to make money, and they may be very comfortable with making money. But it just so happens that when you are in entrepeneurship chances are you're in a very lean, you know, entrepreneurial small business start up mindset, right? Meaning. You are the chief everything officer you're doing all there is to doing your business. You probably got into this business because you're really good at delivering or or developing or giving a certain product or service to your clients in exchange for money, and because you're really really really good at that. You might not have a business degree. You might not have an MBA of some sort. You may not have you may not have ever had a business business terms class. Right. You may not be really good at even balancing your own personal checkbook, let's be honest. Okay. You're not alone. If you're sitting here going, oh, God, that's horrible. But yeah, that's me. I'm really scared of my finances. I wanna just give you a quick brief primer on like, I think it's about seven terms that. I hear a lot that I try to use with my clients that I read about as a business owner that I use to kind of bring my focus. And this is this gonna just give you a little bit of a jump start to help you think about more forward about how you organize your business. How you make buying and expenditure decisions. How you choose to grow your company. Right. We want to grow our company and a big part of growth. Let's be honest is how much money you bring in not just how many people you hire. Or how many clients you have are how many wages you sell. All right. So that's what I thought. I would spend our time on today. So let's jump right in. Okay. The first term that I want you to get a hold of in your business basics. You know, financial numbers kinda game is the is the term bottom line. You've probably heard people using it. You've probably you know, it's out in colloquial limbs all the time. You hear it you probably you may have even used it yourself. But what does it actually mean? Okay. The bottom line. It's kind of like a literal thing that when you're doing a balance sheet when you're looking at your numbers. You have you know, you have costs up at the top. You have all kinds of things you have to sales. You have lots of different numbers. We're gonna go over. But at the very bottom of all that when you separate out how much money you've brought in versus how much expenses it costs you to you know, bring that money, and that's the bottom line. It's another word for overall profit. Okay. Profit is the money you get to keep now a lot of business owners that I work with when we first start working together. They're hardly even making a profit. They're running a business. Yes. But they may be upside down and the bottom line is often read. Okay. So that bottom line number that could if it's red it's debt if it's black it's profit. Okay. It's money you get to keep. So we all wanna go towards a positive bottom line number that allows you to gain a profit in your business and continue to grow that profit that overall bottom line number. So that you get to grow and make more decisions about how to keep your business going and keep making more and more successful. Okay. The next term that you'll hear people talk about a lot is a margin and the margin. It's it's usually expressed like as a percentage, so you'll say, oh, we want a ten percent margin or fifteen or twenty percent or fifty percent margin. That represents the percent of the total sales price or the total. Even if we do it per item. It's
