Jobless Claims Fall After Recent Upticks
"We saw the market rally again on thursday this time. Good jobless claims data. That was released earlier today. Initial jobless claims fell last week to seven hundred twelve thousand. That's well below the expectations for seven hundred eighty thousand and down from seven hundred eighty seven thousand which is the revised number from the prior week. It's the first drop in three weeks and the lowest since the pandemic hit in march. But it came during thanksgiving week and people don't really file claims as much when there are holidays so there is a natural fall off that occurs. But we just don't know how big it was and we can't really read in too much to these numbers thinking ahead. The thanksgiving related drop could cause a measure of catch up when next week's numbers are released. So we'll continue to monitor that very closely. It's important to note that while these numbers show gradual improvements. They're still well above pre pandemic levels. Were talking three times. The pre pandemic levels and they haven't even dip below the great recession peak of six hundred. Sixty five thousand initial jobless claims. So let's hold off on the parties. There are still over. Twenty million people on some kind of benefits context really matters here bottom line. Layoffs are still happening in the cove economy. Twenty five states reported more than one thousand layoffs each last week. They are concentrated in the same sectors. We saw when people pulled back in march like food services healthcare retail and hotels and once again the jobless claims data has come under scrutiny. This week the government accountability office said that the labor department hasn't provided accurate estimate of the number of americans claiming benefits states. Backlogs are overloaded with the historically high number of applications. Which is contributing to this issue and on top of all of that. Millions of people may not be receiving the full unemployment payments that they're actually

Ken coleman to be equipped encouraged and even entertained from time to time. We started off in jacksonville florida. Michelle joins us there michelle. You're on the ken. Coleman show how are you. I'm living the dream. Shell what's going on. I said i'm good. It's a pleasure to be speaking with you today. my question. I'll start off you know. I'm in the lamar. I'm wondering if i should sacrifice and take a lower paying salaries in which is a significant pay cut to pursue a position in a different field. The work well. I need to know more before. I answer that one. What is the field of work and then take me further not just into the field because that the it implies that you're gonna beginning entry level here which would be the reason. Hey cut but take me to the dream. Take me to the mountain. Top in that field. So what's the field and then what would be the dream job So i wanna get into human resources. I actually don't know what my dream job would be within the human resources umbrella. I'm not sure if it would be benefits payroll maybe just a generalist position or employee relations. i'm kind of in the field now but not not so much. Kind of that core I'm in talent acquisition. So we're kind of alongside day. We partner with them a lot and become the company i work for. It's a great company. But i've been kind of just stuck on that talent acquisition side. There hasn't been many opportunities for me to jump human resources or even to learn Other than kind of that surface. So i you know took it upon myself to explore other opportunities outside of the company to really see you know what is out there for human resources. How can i get started I've been in my line of work for about eight years so with that. I've got promotions. I've thought raises. And at this point. My my compensation You know a little bit higher. What's your station about. Eighty thousand right now while. Okay so i think. I i gotta tell you michelle. I think. There's a disconnect somewhere here. I don't know how someone is sharp as you who has moved up the ladder in talent acquisition. Now making eighty thousand dollars a year. Can't catch a opportunity to move. I even want to say laterally in your own company. And i'm not doubting you. I'm just saying there's a disconnect. How is it that you are succeeding and growing in company and and not and not one opportunity to move over into the hr side of things has ever developed. How is that possible. Since being with the company i i've seen you know opportunities for between only just a couple you know would pop up here in there. Maybe once a year once every six months and either we're looking for more qualified people so that means searching externally for someone that already has those credential or or kind of competitive internally. We have a big. Hr team so everyone trying to shift on over okay but you will. Have you made the right relationship connections within your company with the hr decision makers given that you're working with them in your certainly in the same building I have to a certain extent. I haven't you know bluntly tell them that you know i want to be in a pause. I'm not saying that's the. That's the single silver bullet revelation of this phone call. But that's a big one right there. The wing you said it actually is beautiful. You said it really. Well you've just haven't bluntly told him. I want to be over here. Don't you think that's a challenge. That's a problem. I guess. I am. Because i haven't said that i'm kind of afraid of their reaction or or what they would say or if they interpreted. What's the worst that could happen. Let's let's go to your. I love this exercise. This is the monster under the bed. That our kids tell us dan. I'm telling you there is a monster. There's a dragon is going to eat me as soon as you close the door.
Positioning Your Business in an Unpredictable Economy
"In every episode. We talk about business strategies. And what i want to do is give you been more. Well rounded approach to the entire business spectrum. so you won't be boxed into one thing or other shona remind you that zags mindset predicates on you seeking like somebody about solid company. How'd you company. Looks like if the buyer is right there in front of you and they're offering your price forward without be fair price that you think you ought to be getting and by utilizing the product memphis structure and the conversation you would be able to expand on what you have and make sure that your companies operating at an optimal level in order to capture the highest valuation for your company in the highest price. You want from the buyer having said that has yourself sometimes. What about the economy. What about the way. My government spends money wherever you are on the world right now. Probably a government is spending some amount of money his incurring debt many listeners. Probably wondering is this going to affect their businesses. How does it affect their businesses. So i'm going to give you an example about what we have here in the. Us house things are moving in where we think is going to give you. An idea of high should look at your company and how you should look at your exit and your mindset building company. So in the us we have currently over twenty trillion dollar indefinite. Now in your country could be something else could be different. And w you know so. I'm gonna give you something that might not appear to be very obvious. You might know it deep inside but ultimately have to think about a little bit. Where do governments give their money from. Its one source usually. It's called taxation. So the government's usually tax us all of us businesses individuals. Dick that money and use it to spend and if you understand and keep that fundamental fact in mind you'd understand that the amount of money a- government can have wherever it is well it's the us government government it is proportionate to the amount of business as companies. Do now. let's go to the second part of the equation. Companies like you have to sell in order to reduce income and revenues which you'd pay the government doesn't on so now the more the government taxes people the less disposable money those people would have now. Let's take a little bit further so somebody at individual that was earning ceremony income and being ceremony taxes and not more taxes from when that happens that individual must choose which goodson service is gonna buy. Let's say yoga's was down. He might choose to. Because i'm big tax more to pay for all the things that the government wants to do. Then i'm gonna do not buy the item that your visits is producing. Y you guys is disposable. I don't have to do is the Before the taxi so much another taxation so high. I am not gonna do it. What is that gonna do to you your company you are gonna be selling melissa person. But if he multiplied odd by say for example hundred thousand people or a million the visuals or household. Now you're selling less people. Sure you might be selling but you won't be selling as much because the disposable income is less what happens when he said less less revenues. What happens when you have less revenue taxes. Because you're not selling as much now that you make unless refugees painless axes. New government was to get more. Money is negative from you so is gonna do more thing. What's not raise your taxes right so now the killing the goose that lays the golden egg. Where could this lead at some point. Each the government can only take so much from you and there's only so much talk station. They could get from people in our debate for things they get so you as a business would end up in about spot and you might end up having either to close or scale down your employees being have as many employees or them less whatever you have to do and ultimately that cycled. I'm just applying to you but you can imagine all those businesses that are doing now. They're all having the same fact that you're having who's winning. I proposed you. Nobody's winning now at the end of the day. The purpose behind that that front of you here is easy to understand how to position your business in a way that if these things happen that you're ready to move forward and to be able to thrive at least at least make it through those times and jill some of those governments either sack better start understanding economics and what is the meaning behind companies. Do on what they should do to help. Companies like yourself in order to thrive so they could thrive because the problem just raising taxes on people. What happens is that it hurts. Everybody including them. They could probably end up getting more taxes from you. If you're selling more and making more so think about it but they don't think you have to understand governments in the public sector doesn't understand what you do as somebody who is running the company and then understand your problems. This rise governments are concerned within the money. And that's universal because most of the people that run the government. I'm sure they're nice people but at the end of the day they're not in business like never having done it and if they have probably Workup or give exact experience either to understand the problems you face.
New York City positivity rate above 5 percent, highest level since May
"Of Thanksgiving. They have not yet been felt They will be felt in a number of weeks. Dr Fauci, I think said it best, he says, We should anticipate a surge on top of a surge. Take a look at what's already been happening again. These air pre Thanksgiving numbers, the 14 Day positivity rate has grown from 5.2%. Now to 7%. The seven day positivity rate even higher could see hospitalizations now have increased. 86% just in the last 14 days and ICU admissions 67% over a similar period of time. We've seen death rate Increase significantly over the course of the last number of weeks. Just take a look at this slide a month ago on November 2nd. We reported tragic loss of 14 lives related to this pandemic. In the last 24 hours similar to the previous 24 hours, we reported back to back days with 113 deaths. Just in the last 14 days close to 1000. Californians have lost their lives due to covert 19. The bottom line is if we don't act now, our hospital system will be overwhelmed. We don't act now. We'll continue to see a death rate climb more lives lost, and that's why today we are pursuing to the blueprint. We put out some 14 or so weeks ago of pulling that emergency brake. We've done it. Eventually over the course the last number of weeks, but we're doing it much more broad on much more comprehensive way. Today we're announcing on introducing a regional stayed home order in the state of California fundamentally predicated on the need to stop gathering with people outside of your household to do what you can to keep Most of your activities outside and, of course, always most important on pharmaceutical intervention. That is where face coverings where a mask Here's what we are introducing today regions where the ICU capacity is falling below 15%. We are now mandating that we are implementing a stay at home order for three weeks. These regions are defined by this slide. We have five regions in this state. These regions are considered and constructed based upon preexisting mutual aid system in the state of California, you may recall a number of months back and Imperial County We had a situation where there ICUs and hospitals were overwhelmed. We had Pre planned strategies for mutual aid and surge capacity against all part of a regional strategy well defined within the hospital and health care delivery system. We've defined these five regions Northern California, Greater Sacramento Bay Area, San Joaquin Valley and the larger region in Southern California. Take a look at what our projections suggest the five regions that we have highlighted most of these four out of the five we anticipate as early as the next day or two. As earlier rather as late as the next week or so that the Greater Sacramento Northern California regions as well. A San Joaquin Valley in Southern California regents will have reached that 15% or less ICU capacity. The Bay Area may have a few extra days. Our current projections suggest mid Maybe late December. But all within just the next few weeks are icy capacity in the state of California will drop in these five regions, not just in the aggregate, reminding you none of us live in the aggregate. But in these regions where we all reside 40 million of us the ICU capacity in all of these regions. By the end of this month will drop based on our current projections below 15% in total capacity.

NAACP leader on diversity in Biden's Cabinet and commitment to civil rights
"Speech days after the election, Joe Biden think black voters for helping him win the White House. The African American community stood up again. For many with always having my back on, I'll have yours. Now. There's some concern that Biden isn't making good on that promise. At least seven civil rights groups are pressing to meet with the president elect, including the end of the P and the National Urban League. They want Biden to name or black leaders to top jobs in his administration. Marc Morial leads the Urban League mark. Welcome. Hey, it's great to be with you. Thank you for having me. My pleasure. And if and when you get a meeting with the President elect, what will you tell him? So importantly way look forward to a direct communication with the president elect, and we're gonna reaffirm our interest on behalf of the community that the number of Diverse cabinet members, particularly African Americans. Prominent and every level of the body Administration Cabinet sub cabinet. As well as at the White House. You know, we want to give the president elect due credit. He chose an excellent running mate, Senator Harris. He's made an important appointment of Cecilia Rouse, his chair of the president's Council of Economic Advisors, and Linda Thomas Greenfield as U. N ambassador. But we're heavily focused. What's known as a statutory Cabinet, defense and justice and transportation and commerce and labor and hot and education and HHS, For example, that is where The important levers of power are We're going to communicate that to him, and the second thing will be communicating. Eyes our interest in the public policy arena. We need aggressive enforcement of civil rights laws. We need strong investments through both stimulus. And infrastructure plans, and we need Focus on long term issues of racial justice, criminal justice reform, police justice reform just to name a few high priorities and finally With respect to cove it we need to ensure That the vaccine is safe and effective for all people and that there is a community based distribution system. To ensure that people in our community have access to the vaccine. I guess What I'm trying to understand is if you are actually concerned with what you've seen so far, or if you're just trying to get ahead of the process, As you point out, there have been many black officials appointed to keep jobs in the Biden administration says they're not done yet. Yeah, I think it's both. And I think it's uh they've been to statutory Cabinet nominees thus far. Treasury Three rather Treasury homeland security as well as the State Department, and that's important and we do have a concern and we do want to get ahead of the process and We want to be clear that we're looking for a cabinet. When it comes to African Americans and meets but really exceeds the high water marks of the Clinton and Obama cabinets. This is a different time. And the president elect is made of important public commitment to racial justice, and I believe he's serious about that, but toe execute that He's got to have people who have lived experiences. As well as professional qualifications, along with connections to the communities that have borne the brunt of the country's systemic racial injustice. Look, there's no doubt having a diversity of opinions from all walks of life is critical in any leadership role, but make the case why Race matters so much here. Ben Carson. I'm thinking of Ben Carson, a black housing secretary. I assume you don't agree at all with his policies on many black leaders At the same time, we're saying that outgoing Senator Doug Jones, a white man would make a great attorney general because of his record fighting for civil rights. So let me say this. Van Carson is a great doctor. I never thought Ben Carson was qualified. To be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. I thought he would have made made a great surgeon general. You made a great secretary of health. Human services. I think it was an example of picking a quote unquote black person and putting him in what some perceive to be a black position at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. And I think it was It was a mistake, and I think it was a disservice to Ben Carson. So I mean, it's important. Understand this is not just about a black face in a certain place.
Interview With Shawn Van Dyke
"John thanks for taking the time to come and chat with us today. How's it. How's it going on doing great man. Thanks for having me. will you give us. I read your bio on your website. But will you give me in the audience of big picture of your background and kind of have to where you are now in. kind of. Give us the backstory. Yeah sir so by education and training or by just sending a lot of tuition money to the university of tennessee. I eventually ended up with a couple of engineering degrees. So i started my career in construction even though that might offend some people when this always used to be an engineer i make fun of engineers used to be one but i got a degree in civil engineering and then a master's in structural engineering and then went out and did the engineering thing for several years and then realized i don't really know how to build anything and i wanted to get out on the job site so transition from i'd say transition from engineering into construction. I really got laid off from the engineering firm. Heart was working for In went and joined project management team for large commercial contractor that. Put me out on large commercial sites Building all sorts of seven are really really like that Did that for a few years than my way. Up working for some architects and then for real estate developer Doing construction management so. I ended up traveling around the country building commercial real estate projects. You know big stores in the out lot developing out lots and all of that kind of stuff in that for several years. And by this time i was married had five kids now so the second kid was on the way my wife was like. I'm glad you're enjoying your job but You gotta stick around mean. I was on the road three or four days a week wherever the projects were so. That was my first business. Started back in. Two thousand five was a construction management and real estate development company. I'm here in knoxville tennessee. So as doing that work here locally then two thousand eight hit and banks were not lending money to real estate developers anymore So i transitioned from there and started a remodeling in general contracting business People these days called a pivot. I didn't realize pivoting at the time. I just time. I had four kids. Three four came back them So put the tool belt on and started a small construction company. Built it up from there and then one of my subcontractors might trim and melwork subcontractor young guy. We went to church together. His business was blowing up because he got into the high end. Trim and melwork work Market here in our area and typical difficult construction business owner great craftsmen horrible business person and he approached me one day and said man. Your i like the way that you run your construction business and everything's always organized I wanna talk to you about how to run a better business. So we met up for lunch and was talking to him about that and giving them some tips and tricks. And and i didn't know he was interviewing me at the time he said. Okay well i think. I need to hire somebody to run my construction business. Much mill work company and He's an acid yeah. I think you should do that. Because you're a horrible business person but you're an awesome. You're awesome craftsmen in great with the guys out in the field and the work was just unbelievable and he just said okay. I want you to do it. And so i thought i was like i got my own thing going on. I'm okay and he's a great salesman and he's like listen. You have a small construction company is gonna take you twenty years to get where you want to be. I'm already in those projects as a subcontractor we've landed some really high end stuff but this business that we just acquired meaning that the projects coming up he said it's gonna put me out of business doing these projects because i don't know what i'm doing and He he so he said I want you to come and run the business. And i thought i bluff bluffing okay. The only way. I'm going to run your business that you let me run the business. You run the field our on the business. But i'm i'm in charge of the business side of it. And he said no problem and he literally pulled out of manila folder with the entire business and it just random paper. Here's the business slid across the table and said you run it and went home talked to my wife and said this is a crazy idea. This is really stupid but my friends gonna suffer and he was right. It was an opportunity to get on some really into high level projects high end projects that i'd already always been wanting to do in such kind of step back and said all right. Maybe we should do this and So bit the bullet went on went. Joined that team as a as the chief operating officer and at the time we had six guys out in the field in within eighteen months we were at twenty two guys in. He was in debt and not making any money. And we kinda turn that around and and that wasn't all me. We had great team a great owner. That had a really good vision and i was just the execute and putting systems in place. Oh did that for about four years and then got another crazy idea saying. Hey what i've done with my businesses and now with this treadmill work business. I think i see the problem here. Within an industry. I can help a lot more business. Owners with systems. All i know construction. It's all i've ever done so after about four years of being the executive there. I left that that job and started writing books and and speaking at industry events and now it's four years later and i've been doing coaching and consulting work strictly for construction business owners since those back in twenty sixteen. So yeah right up for years. We've been doing this Before we move on but are you recommending to your kids. They go to college. You spend a lotta time in college. You said a master's in engineering of some type so talk about that for a second. Are you gonna man. You're gonna make mom hears this. He's gonna get offended. And it. Every time i say but m. i. encouraging my kids to go to college no not specifically i'm encouraging my kids to develop skills in areas that interest them and figuring out how they can make money at it now. Some of those things that some of my kids are interested in now will require them to go to college. But especially as we're seeing in twenty twenty man colleges change. They're still the same tuition rate but they're not allowing you to go on campus and all of the other things that higher said that here's where value is. Now they're saying nope can't come to campus. We're going to do all virtually. So i think the whole world has changed so but to answer your question. No i don't encourage my kids to go to 'cause. I don't discourage them from going to college. The i feel like it's my job as a parent when you're out on your own which i got four boys in a baby girl. I say baby girl. she's five. She's always going to be my baby girl. The boys they're on their own at eighteen. You better figure out how you're gonna make money at eighteen and if that means you're going to college then you know what i took me. I was on the five year plan to get my undergraduate now. Four year plan right but i worked the entire time and paid for most of my most of my college through work. They can do the same thing so And it looked statistically it takes most people at least six years to get an undergraduate degree and only forty percent of incoming freshman even graduate with a degree at all. So yeah do. I encourage them to go that path. Only if it interests them. Only only if that's that's where their future light. Hey you know. One of my kids wants to be a doctor yet. You probably better go to college. I have several of them that are interested in computer stuff in graphic design and other things and got my fourteen year old son this year to start working for a contractor and over the summer and he came home with more money and more cash in his pocket. And said yeah. That's what happens when you go work. And that's what happened with skill so

Just clean it up. People respect that
Coronavirus Stimulus Talks Moving in Right Direction, Party Leaders Say
"This morning Democrats getting behind a scaled back stimulus toe. Try to restart talks for more. We're joined by Brown University Political science chair Wendy Schiller, professor Good to have you on with us this morning of morning where it seems like stimulus hopes. Spring eternal. But how much hope do you put in Speaker Pelosi in minority leader Schumer backing this bipartisan legislation that was worth about $900 billion it was put forward this week. Good morning, agent. Well, I mean, I think that they recognize that the you know the whole country is being hit really hard by this, but that they're the areas that are you know, traditional sport of Democrats are getting hit again really hard, and they had wanted direct aid for states and cities. They couldn't get it from Trump. They're not going to get from Senate Republicans. So basically someone like Durban and represents Illinois Big City like Chicago has to make a decision system Majority Minority Leader and them hard party and say, all right, we gotta get something you know if we you know, we especially unemployment, either top off or extension or some combination of those things on. I think the Democrats want to get what they can and not turn this into the first battle that Biden have the face once he's inaugurated. Is this about the pandemic, getting to the level that it's at now? Or is this a dose of political reality, given how the election turned out for the house, particularly with Democrats losing seats in November? I do think that the Democrats are not looking at a scenario that they hope to be looking at come January, which was a majority Democratic Senate and then picking up more seats in the house, where they could really, you know, right from ticket with Biden, so given that that's out the window. Even if the Democrats take one or two of US Georgia seats that's still not really a likely scenario you can control the Senate, barely. I have a very razor thin margin in the house now for the Democrats, So yeah, it's a political reality. But I think it's also about what they hope Biden can achieve What becomes president and taking one really big thing off the table before he starts that job, and I think that's a big incentive for them because then they could turn to things like infrastructure, which would also help the economy. Well, what's your sense of what President Biden could achieve. Given the realities of what Senate control is gonna look like either way, depending on how the Georgia run offs turned out, it's going to be a razor thin margin, no matter which way you slice it, and the president elect has said. Whatever gets past if something gets past, but during this lame duck session is going to be a down payment. For something much bigger. Well, right. I mean, this is what you know. Obama wanted a much bigger stimulus than he got in 2009 as well, and he had all three chambers. It's a very hard thing, particularly with it, you know, $3 trillion deficit and rising. So I mean, I just think one of the key factors. Both parties were looking at Tau look towards 2022. Because that's where both parties are looking right now, at least in the Congress side is that suburban voters were willing to split their ticket. And very noticeable voted Republican straight down the line voted for Joe Biden and maybe because it in like Trump. We don't know for sure, but they were willing to do that and then vote for Republicans in other offices, knowing that they're willing to do that means that they're up for Gramps, and I think that's the serve Achilles heel for the Republicans in blocking everything for Biden. I don't think they think they can do that and still safely hold onto the seats they want to defend in 2022, so that's where Biden and the Democrats have a bit of a bargaining advantage. In trying to get moderate proposal through that will help Cove it will help the economy will make suburban voters happy. I'm curious to get your take on how Biden has been starting to fill out his cabinet. Now. There are reports that he plans to announce his health team next week, and one of the names were hearing for health and human services. Secretary is someone that you're familiar with in your home state of Rhode Island Governor Gina Rowe Mondo That Gina Romano has done in an outstanding job in a very small state, but a very, very heavily densely populated state. So she's been dealing with sort of a big outbreak for a long time It subsided. Then it came back. She's been excellent communications and made some missteps very early on in terms of summer management with nursing homes, as other governors did, but generally speaking, has had very high approval ratings and has been thought to make this situation much better than it would have. Then, so she shown leadership in a very stressful time, And she's also communicated really well about why she's doing what she's doing. And I think any pick for HHS secretary has to be an excellent communicator because you have to basically explain the American people why we're doing what we're doing, and when we're doing it, and she's been doing that so consistently, and then it helps bring her state's not complete compliance. Bring her state along in a way that's been relatively successful. Are you surprised at all that, at least so far, we haven't heard any names of Democratic primary opponents on any of Biden's Cabinet shortlists. Well, he can't take. I mean, really. He just can't take anybody out of the Senate. Right? So that takes worn out that takes Sanders out. I know Sanders. People are very disappointed about that on. I think that's what Bernie was hoping for debris Sanders was hoping for, but you just can't take a Democrat out of the Senate. Even the Democratic government still can't do it right now, so that makes sense to me. I think people usually think people wanted him to get something he may still get something There's been talk about veterans affairs. But remember, you know, the Republicans have been relatively accepted to buy these choices so far, except for one choice. Neera Tanden for O M B. I think that's going to hit some some bumps along the way. Probably big bumps. But generally speaking, he wants a smooth Cabinet confirmations, You know process. So anybody who's super politicized more to the left of Biden for a top job. It's just probably out of the question, given the composition of the Senate. Only about 30 seconds left here. Do you think Attorney General Bar is on borrowed time after the voter fraud allegations from President Trump? I think during her borrow, looked ahead to the future and decided does he want to leave the Trump administration with any shred of credibility? And I think this move was designed to show that he wouldn't be try to leave with credibility and confirm the election knowing he's gonna leave anyway. And, you know, thinking about what's next so that he gets fired doesn't get fired. I think what he did was forward thinking for him. Not Miss Ellie and President Trump. Thank you Always could have you on with us. Brown University Political science chair Wendy Schiller with us this morning on
What's the Point of Storage Space
"All right so three key things for storage space. Accessibility usability and maintainability. Okay so all right. Well we're done. I'm just kidding. Of course i'm going to talk about other things anyway but but really though let's talk about you know. Is this something you can actually get to. Because that's going to determine what goes in there all right for us. We store our christmas decorations in the attic. We i'm thinking of this because we just got them down about a week ago and there's part of me that gets a little bit jealous of like my best friend. Who has this storage closet underneath her stairs. And that's where our christmas stuff. And i'm like and that was the case. Then it will be so much easier to get that stuff alibaba but in reality this is my house. This is what i have. That's the space that i have and that stuff is accessible because it is an event to bring that stuff down what i don't use my attic four or are things that i know. I'm going to need. But i don't know what i'm going to need it like. Here's what i picture and you guys can tell me. I'm wrong but like i picture new england having an attic where you can actually stand up in it and like its its own door and you go into it or it has special stairs. No ours is like you poll there. There's this square thing in the ceiling. We've got one In the hallway next to the master bedroom and the kitchen and then we have one. That's in the garage and so there are these two different things. And it's got this cord hanging down and you pull on it and it makes this. Very distinct squeak. Okay and then. It has a ladder. That's like folded up onto that door and you like don't don't that latter day on and then it's sturdy but it doesn't look sturdy anyway and then you climb up into the attic in the attic. One of the reasons. We can do christmas stuff up. There is because at christmas time you can actually in the attic and in the summer in texas. It is like it's horrible up there. The heat is unbelievable in the attic in the summer. So you can't put anything out there that could melt or anything like that but you know and then there are boards across a few places in the attic. That are right. just right inside That that little thing when you go up on this ladder and have to pull things down but you can't just walk around in the attic First of all. It's not tall enough in most places and second of all there's just installation and so there are certain places where they're boards on top of that installation to give you a little bit of storage but it is not this like being dusty is not the issue with the attic okay so but it's accessible for what we store up there but that accent that level of accessibility is a big part of what determines what can be stored up there which is helpful to me because i know it's not just every random thing go put in the attic because it is a huge pain to go up there and i i have been there maybe twice in fifteen years but i please don't be offended when i say this. It's really just one of those things that i choose like a mike. If my husband is willing to believe that that's the man's job to go up there. Of course i could do it. Y'all but if he's willing to believe the man's job to go up there then i am not going to argue with kinda like willing to believe that it's his job to take out the trash which he is amazing at and i'm so thankful for Yeah i've never going to argue with that. Like why would i argue that anyway. So he goes up there. He gets the stuff day on and it is kind of hard to get things down out of that. Not that i couldn't do it. But you know what i mean but it might determine how heavy things can be. You know how big things can be our christmas tree box. We had a new christmas tree at costco last year. Which i love but it is right at the edge of being too big for our house because it's too big to fit in the attic. Okay and that so. We're probably going to buy one of those christmas tree bags. I don't know. I shouldn't say probably i because when i say there's something i'm going to do. I try to avoid that okay. i'll just admit it. I bought those pillow covers. I think i said last time that we were gonna sit down on has a family and decorate them. It didn't happen now. It's still might happen. And i hope it does. There's also a chance that somebody is going to be thrilled at the thrift store to find brand new pillow covers and anyway But yeah so. That's why. When i said it i went. I'm really going to do that. And then i thought dana you know better. You know better you. I always try to tell you guys things after. I did it not in my plans because i've
Why We Need to Quit Coal
"In nineteen forty eight. The british politician emmanuel shin well appeal to people to avoid wasting coal. But just as i am asking the minor but a greater effort to give you the coal you need. I also asked uses fuel at work and at home to burn coal catholic and to avoid way then cole was seen as key to a prosperous future Now seen as a means to a hotter and deadlier one it accounts for nearly half of the global energy systems carbon dioxide emissions this week a united nations report laid out how coal use must be drastically reduced. If there's any hope of reaching the paris agreements target of limiting warming to one point five or two degrees above pre industrial levels the un secretary general antonio gutierrez urged the world to get rid of it. It is time to put a price on carbon to phase out fossil fuel finance and then fossil fuel subsidies to stop building new coal power plants and co power financing domestically and overseas the report this week from the united nations and a group of international climate. Researchers laid out how difficult it might be to meet of these targets. Charlotte howard is the economists energy and commodities editor. So to meet the one point five degree target coal use would have to drop by eleven percent each year for the next decade to meet two degrees would require coal demand to drop by seven percent. That's about the same decline that we are expected to see this year and twenty twenty which was really a historic bad year for coal amid a global pandemic and so that lays out just how hard it is to achieve these goals but even safe the knowledge that it is a terrible fuel. It is still widely in use right. What what is the the global picture of coal consumption look like well. This has been a really interesting year because in some ways it has eliminated both the progress being made against coal as well as illuminated. Just how tricky. It's going to be to get rid of it. In parts of the world in the west and in europe you've seen coal under consistent pressure due to this combination of factors that are mutually reinforcing from government policy which promotes renewables investors becoming increasingly wary of stranded assets and the risk of investing in coal. As well as really good alternatives to call in america this wave of natural gas that was unleashed by fracking. Helped retire a lot of coal plants and now the cost of renewables have declined by so much that in most of the west new solar new wind is actually less expensive than coal from existing. Coal fired power plants so caused really struggling to compete. And the question is how you can start to drive down coal and other parts of the world where it continues to grow if co falls in the west but rises in asia which already counts for three quarters of coal consumption. You're gonna blaze right past the goals of the paris. Climate agreement and yet the question around fossil fuels more generally has been developing economies can essentially catch up to the west without making those same mistakes while while the west is taking. Its foot off the gas as it were. It's worth remembering that american europe. Of course their own economic development was powered by coal and that even now coal consumption per person in india which is the world's second largest coal consumer is less than half the coal consumption per person in america. And so there's this question of. Why should we limit our own economic growth and limit access to a cheap and reliable form of electric city and so you see countries starting to reckon with this trying to find ways both to meet their climate targets as well as continued to support rapid growth. But you say that. Asia is sort of central to to this equation and yet even china for example is is making very ambitious promises about zero carbon output. That's right you saw decision. Paying set out a goal of carbon neutrality by twenty sixty in september and that is a really big deal. China accounts for more than half of all the world's coal consumption. It is the world's largest emitter so having that level of political commitment from government that essentially controlled is very important and the question is how soon china may act to set in motion plans towards limiting its emissions. There are few really key documents that are coming up. So china's five year plan will be published next year that could include a net cap on coal. Which would allow new installations of coal plants. Only as they replace older ones that are more polluting and then also by the end of december china has to make a fresh pledge to fight emissions under the terms of the paris climate agreement of two thousand fifteen. So i think we'll get some more clear direction soon but it's part to overstate just how important it is to think about china and coal just because of how large the emissions are will. That's the story for china. But you you said. Asia more generally is really the the big piece of this puzzle. Some of the forces that are helping to drive down coal in the west don't fully apply in asia and that's largely because of the degree of government intervention. Obviously in china you have state backed coal companies elsewhere in asia to you have governments that are involved either and owning national electricity companies in india coal. India limited is the state-backed coal company. That is the world's largest coal miner. There's a very difficult political challenge. Which is that. The interests of the state and the interests of the coal industry are very closely intertwined and so even when private capital begins to fall away from coal you can have public support for it and that means that it can be more challenging to make this transition. That in parts of america are parts of europe so with all that in mind then. What prospects do you think for reaching the targets that are laid out in this week's u report. I think there are a few really promising things that have happened. One is just this extraordinary decline of coal fired. Power in the west shows that it is possible. Five years ago. Coal accounted for about a third of britain's electricity generation and in the second quarter of this year accounted for zero point five percent. The other thing is that in the five years since the paris agreement you seen real progress on a number of levels you've seen market forces evolved such that renewables really are competitive in much of the world. Even some middle income countries like indonesia where coal is still technically cheaper than renewables. You've also seen a really big ramp up in commitment from global leaders not just xi jinping but india's government has set very aggressive targets for renewables. Of course you have now. In the form of joe biden someone who really views climate as a key part of his presidency. He signalled his commitment to fighting climate. Change the appointment of john. Kerry's climates are and. I think that having the person who was america's seniormost diplomat a secretary of state during barack obama's presidency is important signaling to the world that a new round of leadership on climate is coming and one of the most important tasks in thinking about climate. Diplomacy is how to encourage this shift away from coal and that includes how to support those who suffer from the shift the workers of course also some of the patients that have vested interests in call.
A New Type Of Multivitamin
"Hi sarah welcome to the show. Hi thank you for having me well. i'm kind of curious about your own background. So can you tell us more about that. And of course with jim is all about. Yeah so. John is hiring food first nutritional ecosystem to improve our human and planetary health. I'm so he believed food as medicine with that philosophy in mind were designing products that replace traditional supplements with real fruit bites made of whole foods plants in algiers. So we can get into more of that later but a little background on me. I've been long passionate about the food. Nutrition space. I studied this mortgage lens of policy sustainable development in college and then i went on to start my first company in a plant based Beverage space and i really had my own set of health experiences in my late twenties that brought me to realize just how broken our food system is dealing with commission metabolism that Digestive skin issues. You name it. And i always consider myself relatively healthy but it turns out better. Food system is just so depleted start of its nutrients today that we really do need to figure out how to fill the gaps in our diets in a more holistic way. when i turned to the supplement. i'll. I just found a lot of confusion a lot of dirty things a lot of things that did more harm than good. So that's what kinda brought me to building jen. I'm building this food. I on attritional solution so before we talk a bit more jim. I'm kind of curious. What do you think is wrong with on current nutrition general in the us. Yeah i love that question. I think so much how we look at our health and our food system is through the sort of reductionist lens. And so it's kind of addressing just parts of you not all of you and truly taking if you just look at our supplement. I'll today for instance a lot of it's just taking vitamin c. n. Driving that micronutrient straight into a capsule not including any of the other kind of health benefits that come from you eat real foods the bioactive compounds that enzymes antioxidants that really helped create a synergistic effects. Do a lot of good for your body and the way that we approach service supplements that same reductionist lens we eat. We have on our health in general even looking at our medical world right. A lot of our doctors today in their decade of medical schooling. They have one course on nutrition. So we're really just not approaching our health in a holistic way in one that takes our lifestyle into account as well. I think that that's a huge problem in in. Why we we just gotten more unhealthy over time. I mean even just looking at thirty years ago. One in four hundred people that often autoimmune disease today one in four you which is really crazy or one in twelve. Excuse me so. I think this just speaks to both the kind of decrease in our as a whole of the nutrients in our food system and also just the rise of These supplements and things that are working through this reductionist lens instead of building. Something that's more holistic and rooted in a more nutrient dense product. Right in. do believe that. There's no possibility for us anymore to will live without supplements. You think that's still something that that is necessary. And there's no warnings of that to get all of our nutritionist through our wreck vast lunch and dinner. Yeah that's a great question. I think you know it's sadly impossible to to get all of your nutrients from a well rounded diet in. I believe you know you should still shoot for a well-balanced diet but that's what happened to me in in my own story that you know just looking at an apple today doesn't have the same tree power due to our soil soils being depleted and whatnot. So we do have to figure out how to supplement our diet in get those nutrients that i think the way that our supplements have been set up. Today is one that isn't built holistically to put in play. And so that's what we're seeking to do. I think that the definition of supplement needs to change. And it's not just one in a gummy bear or pill or capsule or all of these complicated powder routines. It's one that really is rooted real food. And how can we choose these different plants in superfoods that have higher nutrient density to help deliver that And that's what we're trying to do with jam and actually with jan were a real food. Product actually fda regulated nutritional penalty. Don't have a supplement panel but we're really trying to replace a lot of those supplements and how we think about those supplements and how they're designed so to our listeners who've never seen what jim looks like what the what should they imagine. Well it's looks completely different than what you would imagine. A traditional supplement with tila quake so instead of a pill or capsule is a real food bite. So it's our first product is made from thirteen different plant based ingredients compress down into one. Chewable bite that you eat And it's all plant based it's different plants. Algae and mushrooms herbs and it's designed to address you in a much different way than most multi vitamins multivitamins have notoriously neglected kind of key nutrients that i think are really important to our modern lifestyle demands. So things like we have also gone to for instance gen and national gone desert really powerful adapted jin herb that helps regulate record levels. And we're all very stressed out nowadays so having things like that in your multivitamin and having things Other really great superfoods are the types of things that we want to think about. And how you and how you take your supplements what they're actually designed to do for you so it looks differently on. It's also designed completely differently
The Most Important Chart for the Markets
"We start off tonight with the most important charter in the market. Because of course we would according to one of our traders check out the yield curve spread between ten and two year treasuries at its highest level since february twenty eighteen. So our rates off to the racist. Could this rate shock crush this record rally karen. You flag this yeah. I don't know it will crush this record rally. We don't want rates to skyrocket to quickly. I mean this is a big move but still you know. The absolute is seventy eight basis points but it is sort of telling us that the expectation is that the economy. Oh heat up and we've seen that. The resources traded that tim talks about. We've seen in energy. We're seeing it in the banks Even though they don't really aren't giant to ten spread they do trade that way. So it's indicative of the expectation of a heating economy. Maybe also more stimulus. So that's sort of how position but i also have a big inflation bet on because i do think there is a chance that inflation gets away from the fed and i don't know what they would do in the shorter to medium term the timeframe though tim i mean it's got to be a goldilocks right. Just enough inflation. Not too much inflation. It's gotta be just right. Yeah i mean it definitely not too hot not too cold and you have a case where normalized rates coming out of this and whatever that means also but where we were coming into kobe remember. We're somewhere between one. Forty one seventy five and the ten year so pointed out what the trades that have been beneficiaries or have had the extra boost that comes from this and the resources trade. I mean look coppers three fifty. We haven't been three fifty since march of two thousand and thirteen and some of the trades that look like it's back to the future in the resource look at steel companies. And i'm not just talking about us. Steel look at mattel which arguably the biggest deal company in the world or posco. These you know mt. pk ex. Those are names. you can track over here freeport. We talk about all the time. So i think you have a case where the assessment of all of this to me is more about normalizing. It's not that we're in great shape. And in fact i think we're in a tough place for markets and even some of these trades when we've normalized but we aren't near normalization at this point then later on fiscal even if that's disappointing number Infrastructure to me is is going to continue to rally in these trades member again. you don't buy commodities when you're when they're cheap you buy them when they're running and when they're expensive and i think there's a lot left to do here.
Protect Your Sobriety Through Holiday Stress
"To this topic today about overcoming the overwhelm of holiday stress protect your sobriety through holiday stress. Okay that's what we're going to be focused on and you know the first thing i'm gonna talk about is planning ahead. Holiday season comes at the same time every year. There is no excuse for not being prepared. This season will probably be a little different because of corona virus. I know for me. Some of our family isn't going to travel just to be safe so our celebration will be smaller than normal. But i'm already thinking about my plan for myself right. There's no reason to sit back and do nothing and wait for the overwhelmed to crush you when you know it's coming and holidays stress isn't only about the parties and drinking either. There is added stress of preparation for travel or prep for people. Staying in your home. Cooking and baking. Like i talked about a minute ago. The grocery shopping for all the cooking and baking and of course the holiday gift shopping being surrounded by family members that we don't know all that well being in crowds social anxiety. All of it is exaggerated in at a higher level than normal and then throw in the corona virus on top of it all and the stress of trying to stay safe. Keep your family saved decide whether to have your celebration or not travel or not staying socially distanced through all the grocery shopping and gift shopping. I mean it's a lot it's just a lot. Did i even mention the financial stress of it. All i mean money money money going out every frigging direction. It's kind of funny to me too. Like i said holiday season comes the same time every year. So it's always a little bit amusing to me when i don't think about it earlier. You know what. I mean like the last couple of years. I've been really good about doing some of my shopping much earlier in the year. Instead of leaving it all till the last minute because it is stressful. I don't care if you have ten million dollars in the bank like it is stressful. When you just see your money going going going going going every direction so we all have stress in our everyday lives on some level right in the short term stress can be good it gives us a shot of cortisol and adrenaline and your body goodson action mode and keeps you focused and helps you get things done. But you can't live in that state long term you'll start having all kinds of crazy side effects mentally and physically. And it's just not sustainable. What i want you to focus on in the next couple of weeks is getting a plan together for yourself not just thinking about it. Haphazardly but really mapping out a plan to protect yourself protect your sobriety and keep your stress manageable. So you don't end up vulnerable to the drink right it out in your journal talk it through with your sponsor or your coach or your accountability. Person have a thorough plan in place for those of you. Who are really doing the sober thing and have made a true commitment. You've probably already started thinking about this. And the first thing i want you to think about is having some boundaries boundaries. Around your time and your schedule okay. I am a person who needs to take a time out here and there. I need to step away from the work. The phone the computer the family the dog the everything i need a few minutes to decompress get my thoughts in order and give myself a little pep talk and i need to do that in silence so the way i do. This is when i'm in any type of group situation whether it's business related friends or family or a. My escape is always to the bathroom. And if you've listened to this podcast for any length of time or for sure if you've been on a coaching call with me. You already know this is my thing my group actually in my six week program right now. We're just laughing at me about this the other day. But it's so true. We all have to go to the bathroom multiple times a day. Excusing yourself to the bathroom is acceptable in normal in any situation. Like it's the perfect escape if you need a minute so use that
Do Not Adjust Your TV
"Their feet a lot of the time though. It's simply a matter of broadcasting a stronger signal than the station is the equipment can be sophisticated but it can also be made of scrap. Parts from things like ham radios. The motives vary widely from frustration. To it's just a prank bro. to we don't even know what heads up. There will be real clips in this episode and some of them are weird with a capital. W t f the earliest signal intrusion anywhere in the world that we know of happened back in nineteen sixty six in the soviet city of kaluga and almost triggered a nuclear war. If you know only one thing about world history in the second half of the twentieth century it would probably be the cold war decades of itchy trigger finger tension between the us and the us are one night. The regular broadcast was suddenly interrupted by a seemingly official emergency warning that nuclear war had just broken out with the united states. Many viewers took the message seriously running for cover and seeing their final prayers thankfully as what happened with stanislav petrov. Nineteen eighty-three when he correctly guessed that the early warning system was malfunctioning. When it reported incoming us bombers you can hear all about that way back in episode eleven for want of a nail government. Officials weren't quick to react a good thing to at the time. The ussr had over seven thousand nuclear weapons at their disposal. Ducted eighteen nuclear weapons tests that year alone. The us had nearly four times as many. But that's neither here nor there. It would only take fifty hiroshima sized bombs to plunge the world into nuclear winter. The soviets weren't messing around. If one official had thought another department had put out jim. It message about the us attacking. That could've been the start of a very fast extinction level event thankfully. The officials didn't panic at least not officially it would later be found that a teenager had hacked the station. His name was never released possibly because of his age and possibly to save him from retaliation from his neighbors or maybe it was a made up. Cover story tin foil hat. Nuclear war became a running theme for signal takeovers and it wasn't confined to the cold war in june of two thousand seven a show called panorama was part of the regular programming in the city of prague. In what is now czechia. The show was meant as a sort of tourist program to display calm scenic areas around the country. Like a tv travel brochure. This particular episode started off as usual with long. Lingering shots of picturesque locales around prague. Without warning the screen was bathed in a blinding flash and mushroom cloud began to climb into the sky above the city. This would be disturbing enough to see on its own but panorama was usually aired live meaning terrified viewers. At home were left. They had just witnessed a nuclear strike on their hometown. The hijacking was seamless. There had been no static or breaks in the tv signal. It was so realistic. In fact that even government officials and authorities believed the explosion was real. Luckily it doesn't take many phone calls or glances out of a window to confirm that there is not in fact a mushroom cloud rising above a blast crater in the middle of the city authorities soon turned their energy to finding the perpetrators. It would eventually be discovered that a guerrilla artistic collective called sto hoven which is known for their extravagant hoaxes and pranks were the culprits. Apparently this was a piece of performance art whether or not making hundreds of people think they're about to die.

"This beginning part was pretty hard. UPI stumbles part in a house doesn't mean that you're not like if part of your identity I feel like was over a bit of like freedom and being a nomad having home doesn't mean you. You chant still do that. It just means that now you have roots. So now you can go fly. And be no matter. But. You'll always have somewhere that you can kind of like root for a bit and then like go do whatever you want. So which is nice. Roots are nice. Roots are so nice I like did not have roots for the longest time and again here I find myself moving again but I feel like we'll have we'll have some solid roots That's what we're trying to do so. I'm excited. Real. Centerfield. Yeah. Let's do it. Okay. Oh my gosh this is a really good one. This is wrong at fail underscore. Mitch I. Love Gale Sale. She's amazing. You know. I WANNA know Gail Okay Dale says, how do I told that voice? That tells me no one is GonNa want what I have to offer to shut up off. So good Well, there's a couple of ways so. This is the best sound so basic, but it sounds like you're either wanting to like do something new start something new and I'm guessing it has to do with business or starting a business around something maybe it speaking writing opening something new new product, and one of the things you can do is put out a survey your people. Hey if I did acts or provided axe or coached in acts or created this product and acts, would you be interested or does the sound interesting? And like just start exploring that and don't just put out one survey like ask a million questions about it So when I first started the alcohol company like I knew, I, was going to do it because for me I just was like this is an idea I really. WanNa. Do and so I took on the responsibility of people may or may not be interested but I had a feeling they were because everybody I knew had cocktails and typically liked lighter cocktails At like in girls bond over wine. So it was a pretty sure fire thing that if my demographic while I was going for was girls, then I was going to create something very girly in in do market research. So first of all, you can do some market research. If you're like I don't even know if this thing is a popular if it's not then you want to kind of like start asking would this be something you would use? Would you like this you know if I if it's a service of yourself or a book or something like Hey if I wrote a book on this, what else would you like to hear from me or what would you like to learn from me like survey your audience like what something interesting you know that you would like to learn from or you can ask your friends like get a group of friends together for some honest truths of like. When I'm Oh I. Love this question. Love this question I think we asked it to each other avenue when I'm at my best, what am I doing in your opinion? How you know if you need to start it so I want let's ask you again because I'd love to hear your thoughts when you're at Your Best Evans. What are you doing? I'm writing this down right now. To look at it again came on what am I doing, Yep? I'm not on my computer all day. Yep. I think I'm connecting with people and This is very vague. I don't know you do not I do going. I. Think. I can make people laugh in some ways maybe with you. Guys whenever with Evans like everyone that I've ever met his like Holy Shit she's a comedian and you have to watch your stories. It's ridiculous. Okay. Keep going. Yes we know this. That's the thing like those little creating those little things like stories and stupid stuff like that. Make me laugh and I love when people are like that made made me laugh today I'm like great. That makes me feel good when I'm major day. Feel a little better. Your listing of my dog, you should probably is some modality start with something like. podcast an instagram page whether it's you under a different personality I know that you love paper companies and greeting cards and all like you have so many different ways to go and so I'm saying this to you because there's a million people like you. There's so many people listening right now who go well I don't know is that a skill? Yes. Oh my God, like you want to know what I thought, my skill was or like what I I'm like. Well, I guess I'm good at kind of putting out a motivational idea and changing perspective. Do you really think that I could I was like, yeah, this is GonNa be a great like moneymaker. This is a great idea Laurie Lakes leave your gym like cellular Jim you're one skill of. Making money and then go and be motivational because one day you're going to have a book and speak on stages and have a podcast and you know do all of these other things that was not the idea it was like just start and be consistent with it, and then what's going to happen is you're gonNA, start seeing the opportunity from it. So that is what was the original question. The original question was about. time that voice that says like no one is GonNa want what I have to offer telling you buy it. What voice I would be worried about is the voice that says do I like myself or not. Oh Lori just dropped a ball. Well, this is because I'm dealing with it with me like I need to stop charing what other people think and so worried about should I ask that what if they think that I'm like you know just wanting them for their name or what if they think Oh. Oh my God. Just ask like what what would what happens if you go to bed tonight and you're pissed at yourself again and you're like, what is your problem? Why can't you know the Stream is from God like why aren't you actually thinking that you have the strength to ask This person and to deal with criticism like stop being such a baby like I have to say this to myself sometimes, and and literally like God's GonNa Quip, you to to number one ask and then he's also going to equip you to be able to handle criticism. So it's kind of like remembering that if we're not willing to go there, we actually don't trust that we are being looked out for and provided for and that we have that were given something external whether you believe in God or universe and I think that's a big slap in the face to whatever kind of. Form of God you believe in Energy Universe because I think we're abundantly provided for and it's it's like saying, I, don't believe you. So I don't WanNa live with that either that I'm kind of like it's almost like in your prayers at night instead of being like, Hey, give me the strength. It's literally like saying. Hey. It was another day of me not believing you just want to let you know and I just I'm not gonNA live that way. It's so true when you get in that mindset, everything just gets darker. Oh, so dark. Oh, by related. Lonely and that's not because we cut ourselves off from that that energy of source. So when you cut your bet that's when you know you've cut yourself off, you were never caught off right from the abundant energy that's flowing from the universe. it's always who cut ourselves off. So when it's so funny because it'd be like on a sunny day being turned around and be like why why isn't the Sun hitting my face? What were the sun goes like oh? Yeah I turned around. Analogy terrible by us. It's all about your you choosing the I some podcast and they were talking they gave him a similar example like a guy's in his nice suit and he's going outside to work and it starts raining and one of them is like Oh. This reminds me of Childhood in the warm summer rain and it's so nice and then another guys like Oh. Why days ruined I'M GONNA be late to the meeting. My suits stuttered yet. That's another cheesy example, but I love it. It's it's one percent the truth just like how you're going to deal with winter. And me like.

"Does Laurie always know what I need to hear from fitness to self love to business somehow whenever I hit play on, earn your happy worry comes on saint exactly what I need to hear so many amazing guests and fantastic content. Thank you for being in my ears. Oh my God Beth, you're amazing what Evans and I do is we tune in to we've ha we've learned how to Hack Alexa in your home and we in on spyware. So it's pretty easy to be able to give you exactly what you need Actually, what Evans and I do is we say what we need and I think that what happens is we realize we're all humans and we were so isolated in that. Our problems are so cool and individual Having Zayed and can't do it I don't have the skills and then we realized that we're all saying the same fake made up excuse and I have no idea that relates to this might be the first day that Beth is like didn't nail it. Yeah. That that that definitely nails it every day. Yep Bath is nailing life. So Beth, thank you so much for writing in. It actually makes us feel like we have a listener like now I can picture best listening to us and that gets me really excited. He'll. Beth was like such a cool name and I think I probably wished for that name at one point in my life because it sounds like a popular girl. So Bass, I love you thank you and I appreciate your name is much as I do. So with that sad, we'll move on and I would love know If we have questions from the audience, we do have questions from the audience the audience wants to know about leveling up. Oh I wego about that. The first one is from Amanda EADS. Amanda. Says, can you talk about Imposter Syndrome someone will find me out ERC quote unquote someone will find me out maverick promotion. ooh This. Is so good So everybody has imposter syndrome and everybody. This is what I think is so funny and actually listening to it in that book winging it today. So I I'll say please get the book Wayne yet you'll love it. Because she was talking about how? Everyone who's ever done anything is doing it for the first time. Like they are an impostor like so when you get a job Evans, so if I were to hire you for a job that perhaps you've never had before but we think like, okay, you know you go in and you're like my maybe you go in and you kind of like. Blow up what you have done before bloat don't ask me inflate Yeah Eric. Blow Up. Diarrhea. Up Diarrhea. On the interview God. Why do bathroom things make you like I don't care how you are it never gets old. Thank you for that. Okay. So you inflate. What year capabilities are? And I'm like okay great. That she's done this a little bit before and maybe I really think she can because she has a lot of confidence and you did that because you want the job but you go home and you're like Oh holy hell I'm not sure I can do this and you go to the job and you show up and you feel like a total what? Like a fraud. A fraud like, yeah I'M GONNA put my aunt's again because I can't do this and it's the first time. You've ever done this particular job and it's like, okay, Great. You got the title is what I'm trying to say. So now you have this new title that you've never had before and you're supposed to feel like you're a genius added except it's an also even if the title was the same at an old job, it's now a new place. So it's things that you've never done before and it's like you're supposed to show up. And just like, yeah, got it and and here's the thing is it's never that you don't get it. It's never that you get. It's the willingness to say I. got it meaning you're GonNa, take that task and you're going to run it in every possible scenario even if you can't figure it out, you're going to be willing to go and ask for help and figure out how it's been done before and that is how you get over imposter syndrome. You're you're always going to feel like an impostor because it's always gonNA be new like. I feel like a million percent imposter starting this company right now like I. It's funny because I was talking yesterday and I'm like Oh it's so weird to have this title of life founder and CEO I've never done it now like well, you are one now Mike Yeah but I feel like I'm not like running this company yet I don't have like all of these employees and all of these things lined up yet and they're like, okay. But you're doing you're doing it like you're figuring it out. So like own the title and act like. One and I was like So you never know what we're doing lake you live into it. So if people find out great people on employees that we have tell us they don't know how to do it all the time but then they say I'm GonNa go learn how to do it so I don't get mad at them for not knowing because I know I'm throwing something new at them every day I get upset if they are not willing to learn it so nothing makes me feel better than when an employee says to me like Hey So I gotTa, tell you never done it I'm figuring it out right now I have a call with I've set up a call with this person I got really proactive over sheer I'm reading this you know could I maybe take this class? Is that possible on the company like all all of those things so don't ever act like you have it all under control. It's the worst possible thing that you can do as a human being and as an employee. So ask for help and say it or just go in start figuring it out. So I think that's how you overcome impostor syndrome is like. Why would why on earth? Would you ever know how to do everything you know? Giving yourself grace and and like you said earlier, it's about that deciding you're deciding you're the CEO. Now, some deciding to be the CEO in my actions totally million percent. So tell me tell me Evans where you have felt like an impostor and the new like worked through it or what you did. This is a very strange example but I'm feeling that way with being a homeowner Totally. Because I've never owned a home before young and I've always rented in little apartments little things and I'm like I don't know what to do with a house like how is this? This is too much. I shouldn't live in this house Well, actually you should if you like the House and it makes you happy you're going to take care of it. What's the big deal is ridiculous example but it just I totally get it isn't that strange? Well, it's a question of like and maybe this maybe this isn't new but I'd love to hear like. A of like. Am I capable of taking care of a home? Am I responsible enough will this be something that is actually like? Worthwhile I'm sure like all of those things come up and like Oh that's a it's a big responsibility. So it's kind of like, Oh, my God I am i. I don't know is that something that comes up free were not at all what what is what's the underlying issue that comes behind that I guess I've always kind of felt like a little bit of a a nomad like moving around doing different things and freedom in different ways and now it's kind of like, Oh, you are in charge of this. Thank you need to do a good job and it's just strange. It's like moving into a new exciting people are going to be like, what are you talking about but you know I think they're totally understand. So I'm glad that you're sharing it. Because, it comes up in so many forms and I want to remind you you have now taken care of two dogs. That's true. You want to know what is more of a like. Staple and like a grounding thing ever like you're responsible for two lives and I have like it's not like that is now whoever's listening if you've never had a dog, just ignore this part in, you can roll your eyes but it is no small feat like I've had friends who haven't had dogs and had children and then they get a dog and they're. Like wait, this is.

"Ski mask to walk so you might want to. Anyway. Jack over who even carries you're just cover your face you'll be warmer. So it's like wearing an eternal scarf that gets wet and that's how it felt in the winter like you just have a wet scarf. Yes. So I think I helped, right? Yeah. I think a war excited. Now thinking of just wearing like a wet face covering. Really. Pay If you ever get depressed about the weather being talked to me and I'll tell you all about just all the all of the things. So yeah. Are we're going to try to fry an egg on Iraq when you move? Definitely. I'm definitely going to do that. No I'm really. Is it weird that I got super excited and kind of bum that moving there while it's cooling down yeah I do WanNa. See that when you do it, we take a video. Everyone are you kidding? Yes I will document it. Maybe I'll write about it. There will be a podcast about it. I. I will make rock eggs and I will try to eat them. So you know you know how you go to rock like you cook Sushi on Iraq and you cook like steak on a rocket these fancy fancy restaurants. They're like, ooh, this is hot stone in this is, is like hot stone flay and for some reason, they upcharges like to hundred dollars to cook your own food on a small rock and it's the most frustrating experience of your whole life. 'cause you're with a table of four and you're like, let's go experience this and only two pieces of meat can fit on the rocket once and the rock is cooling off and it takes fifteen minutes to cook it and you're worried about food poisoning in you're having a conversation like, do you think this is safe you've had that experience, right? Of course can. I actually can't believe we paid way more to wait this long and worry about food poisoning and it's not. It's not that great because you're cooking the rock with like plane meet you're not seasoning it. Yeah. You're not getting his love infused into it but anyway, I think that I'll go into rock cooking and I will clean off the rock and I'll have my guess over and I'll be like. Two hundred dollars on the table. And Cook rock eggs. Melting pot did you ever go to a melting us and I swear I got food poisoning from a melting pot because I I'm an eater I'm main excited eater and I used to really fast and like overeat and binge eat a lot when I would go out you know in my twenties because I would like it. I would wait until the. Weekend. This was my cycle. Wait till the weekend like eat really good during the week and then drink a ton with Chris and then you know eat a ton and we happen to melting pot a few times doing that and I, think when you're drinking a lot and you're excited for your food you under cook it. So I just think I was like. Tell me about your melting pot experience. I swear that was like the place to go in highschool like with your friends you'd be like, let's put a melting pot. Also not smart because you're cooking raw chicken and it's the waiters like are it's our it's literally like drop off raw possibly salmonella poisoning food to the table and then be like. Careful make sure you don't use the same Tong. You're like, why does no one thing they said? And you get lazy don't you. You'll get so lazy you just eat raw chicken. It's not a good thing I feel bad if melting pots listening I'm sure you've changed your process by now do you WanNa know I want to say about melting pot in a positive light Cool what a cool experience. It is cool but desserts with chocolate. Now, that is a good melting five. Yes and I think what we're actually saying is just make sure you don't drink too much and make sure you cook the food. Clearly we both had problems because we were. Speeding to the food process. So you know what I want to say five stars. Stars and you can't beat the fondue the cheese. Oh. Yeah. The cheese is really good. The melting cheese I forgot about the multi. Yeah. So here's the deal. You don't even need the meat just like go have cocktails have the cheese have the dessert the chocolate fondue yet you definitely don't get out of there without. Putting on a couple pounds that's what I'm saying. Why think we've done a good job of rain people down Joe try to bring them back up. Yeah. You know what? I love this I I don't think a podcast has good unless you bring people through an emotional journey just like writing a book So, let's take them on backup YEP. What's your quote? You here? Go you really good. Let me tell you why this quotas good because it is from the book that I'm loving it's from Isaacs in wing it and she said. I wrote this in my email to myself. So let me make sure there's no. Can't wait. Oh. Here we go. When you know you know and when you don't know you decide. So it's never about like waiting to be like, I'm not sure I'm not clear. So this really helps me like even with the thought of like my company I. It's like I had moments of knowing but then you have a lot of moments of not knowing and being super scared and I just decided I was like you know what I kind of have a theory that I've seen work throughout my life and it's like if once you decide and you just you're just committed to the vision of that journey but being malleable enough to like change with what comes up in what's being shown to you a long journey. Because that will happen you can't be so committed that it needs to look a certain way. But as long as you decide, I fully believe that thing will be successful. It's just making the decision to commit to it and follow through So I think so many people quit because they get roadblocks or they're they're not sure or you know at Oh my God look at all these problems I knew maybe it wasn't right. I know I wasn't one hundred percent clear. You're never going to be a hundred. I don't think you're ever going to be like a one hundred percent clear because even when people say there are one hundred percent clear doubts creep in So you'll have moments of that and then you'll have moments of like, what am I doing and that's where the decision the decision is the thing that will pull you through to the end but not the moments of clarity those are just for you to make a decision. So anyway, that's why I love this quote. It with your hours. Really good. Feel like we all. Kind of goes with the one I got. And you just pointed at this you literally of this clean doing less than one second. Yup It's Brian Hoda copy is book and it says the best way to predict your future is to create it. Oh MIC drop. That is that's it. That's literally goes right along with us because it's the same exact thing. It's making the decision that you are not GonNa wait to be like a why isn't my life's mission and purpose coming falling in my lap it's never gonna look that way ever. It's like, what do I love and how can that be applied to something? How can I decide to follow through with that and from that I think once you start that in motion it's amazing how things start opening up for you and you start seeing things you would have never seen so love that do you have a review? Yes I would love to hear from our review of the week. Well, this is from Beth la one-two-three what a coup last name One-two-three One-two-three. that says, how.

You know I think that that's a telltale sign that you're gonNA stay independent within your marriage and it's going to be so successful. And I don't like paperwork. It's exactly what that is like how many things did not get done when you move to California that now that you're moving out, you're like well, never had to do it. Exactly, like law ever did this. So it's fine. I Still Have My Min- Minneapolis cell phone number It's totally fine.

I'm great and I don't know if we welcomed everybody to the podcast but welcome back to questionably awesome. If this is your first time listening welcome, you're going to your mind will be blown. Part of the podcast where I just get to really relax be myself and invite someone on who I have a good time with and you know this is that point where I either gain listeners like really gain their attention and they're like she's got this other side to her that I love or they're like I can't. Chant ever listen to these people again because I'll never get that time back in my life I. Hope There's a couple of those people, right? Cheers to a couple of them. Oh. We're good with that. I feel like that actually just makes me really clear on my identity and if it's not for you, that's fantastic Are you thinking about some of the reviews and I'm like Oh. I feel so bad for them because as or are negative reviews which are so few and far between by the way. Thank you for that. But because I can't imagine being serious like I have a meeting with you know Jackie are Nick's girlfriend who we both have in common who adore and a meeting with her 'cause I'm working with her on some stuff for my new company and she was like, no laughing at this meeting because we need to get work done and I was like that sounds terrible.

Moving on from that Evans back to your show where we answer our audiences questions and we try to get them some value while also potentially making them laugh. Yeah. While devaluing while also evaluate. Yeah. It's like an even processed by the I like that because you know what I don't like to get to high. That's dangerous. So. So. Let's see. Where do we begin? How are you? Really Great. Great at why is that? Well actually I feel lot better. Now, this morning this has been I'm I lied I lied I. Don't agree. Yep But today feels a lot greater. Do you know it's so funny as I was having like the best morning ever and then talking to you made it even better but this week was one of the hardest weeks of my life ever like probably felt the most stress I've ever felt in my entire life and. Yesterday I like pop dot of it because I did a lot of reframing. I've been reading the big leap again. Have you ever read that? No I'M GONNA write it down right now though I. So I gave her a book this morning to read. So now you have to books that you've but these are fast rates because they're so good that it's the it's the type of books that you literally are like Oh my God, why can't we and then you you're on a dry spot after dry spot dry spout dries hurt I spell dry spell. Thank you. Bye. Sounds like you either need water or some sort of cream The word cream is just while it sounds soothing. It also sounds gross um yeah. I don't love the word Green. Well, it's strange strange. It's it's both delicious and disgusting at the same time like. Coffee without cream seems dry A. Creamy. I. Don't like at all but I like the taste of I don't know this is terrible. Using. I'm GonNa talk about something else. So with that said, we were talking about books. So you're GonNa have to read the big leap and that really got me back into the place of like damn I'm doing this to myself like I'm upper limiting myself, which means like blocking myself `bout training these things into stress and focusing on things that aren't going to come true and even if they did, what are you going to do about it and you know, I, realize that if I'm going to remain you know in a place where I wanna feel content happy progressive that you also. Have to really pay attention to that call in your life or it will actually show up in really negative ways whether that's you know problems with your relationships, anxiety, depression all of those things. So that's how it shows up when you are not living into your highest potential. So that's what that book is about. Everybody at the Big League by Gay Hendricks read at three times reading it every morning right now and it is helping me cope with a lot of pressure and then this next book way out on the podcast yesterday and it's coming out in a little bit. That I was telling, you about was Emma Isaacs in the book is called winging it and not is all about just like how successful people actually make their decisions and that's actually where one of my quotes from his her book that I was listening to also on audio this morning. So I read both books you're on fire today. Well, here's why I'm waking up earlier and going to bed earlier because I'm in this place of like knowing, I need to support myself extra 'cause. I can't live the way the way that I was living there for a little bit like going to a new level in that requires me to pay more attention and support myself more otherwise. I'M GONNA. Crumble. So I'm just doing I'm doing that for me. Otherwise I'm not functioning. Does that make sense? Yes. Makes Perfect sense and I think we all need to hear that. Yeah. It's like this is not just happening. This is like next level supporting myself I'd even cut back on coffee. Oh. What that was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. So I'm probably only having a quarter cup of coffee every day. Oh. My that is I feel like you're a big offi person. Oh. That's. Literally, there's no blood in this body, it's straight up Mocha Java. It you can do that and the rest. The rest of us can do any. We can do anything you know talk to me in a week I might be off books and back on coffee. So. We'll see it happens all the time like I. Just Record these podcasts in the highlights of my life much like instagram just getting highlight reel I really share really bad things as well. I promise go back and listen to a few. You'll definitely hear me like crying on some of them. Yeah. So that's going on in my life Evans, you're moving soon. How are you feeling about that? I'm feeling excited a little nervous mostly because of the coldness of the weather bear. Yes yeah.

"The spectators daily politics podcast I'm sending you an I'm joined by Johnson and former chief executive of ups. Mary cannot cook say today's Results Day England, Northern, Ireland and Wales and much expected. It's being pretty much carnage over third of grades across the countries have been downgraded with some schools and colleges see more than half of their students affected Mary he questioned numbers for us today. What would we learned in terms of the downgrading? Well so we've heard. that a large proportion of grades have been downgraded mostly by only one grade. What was interesting is at a system level. The A level results are actually up compared to the previous year and they look quite healthy and also translated through to quite a healthy looking recruitment cycle into universities. So I think what we're finding out today is not, but the system has failed, but obviously, a lot of individuals feel that they've had very unfair results and and there's a lot of anger about it. Fraser there are lots of horror stories out around in on social media in the papers, and you've spoken to a few kids from Social Mobility Foundation that you said on a board full rights and every spoken to two of the teenagers help decision ability foundation both of them have got some pretty shocking stories. The first one I spoke to with 'em wasn't is a brilliant student she been predicted for a stars she be given an offer from. To study medicine, the only wanted one day star into as an art member telling me when she got the offer delighted she was because she thought that would be a dull. She was on course to get forty stars. The computers come back today and told her she's got four bees instead now that obviously means Oxford has withdrawn its offer she doesn't know what she's going to do. Interestingly, she didn't sit marks. The government assumes everybody in England sits marks she didn't the virus got in the way of her marks of also spoken to somebody else helps. Social Mobility Foundation she was predicted for as and she found out today that she's been allocated ateb. So her over to study medicine at UCLA has been dropped her back over his at Cardiff has been dropped. She had mocks that she didn't do particularly well in them because she didn't focus on them. They happened in January at the same time as her med school interviews. So she was going all out to prepare for these pretty difficult school interviews didn't worry about too much more and thought well, the marks will just expose what we can says I've. Got So they can focus on that enables the marks of ended up dictating what she's got now statistically, they're in the minority, but that doesn't really help them. You can say that Sam for stars downgraded to Abe is such. A big Dan will if it's the difference between the university you wanted and having new backup that is a pretty big difference I'm not going to say those Arab for these kids are M are typical but I will say is that they're both from schools at ten not descend people with straight East University that's why they're being. Held by the Social Mobility Foundation, they typically have to qualify for free school meals to get on that scheme..

"Did you feel once had been introduced entrepreneurship that it was somehow inherently who you were, Troy. I definitely always wanted to work for myself. My great uncles were really great entrepreneurs, you know. Not in a sense of people with no them nationally or maybe even locally, but they were they were. Community based entrepreneurs where? My Grandmother's brother. One of them owned a funeral home business in Philadelphia and you know he works for himself. You know had a middle class family and you know. One of my uncles had my great uncle's had a hairstyle and business in a bar in his. Shoeshine shop you know within within within his neighborhood, and then one of my other uncles was a minister who had his own church, so these were like men who I looked up to and so seeing. Also, there were a lot of great black entrepreneurs in my neighborhood. That owned the local dry cleaners, and you know the restaurant on the corner, and then after a while we saw you know one wave of turnover where immigrants came into the neighborhood, and you saw a shift from local entrepreneurs to immigrant entrepreneurs, and then from the immigrant entrepreneurs you saw gentrification, and so two chains come in, so I I was kind of watching this turnover, but for me it was Abou- ownership, and this whole idea around pride of ownership and. An that does always been important to me. You know this this idea of pride of ownership. You started a company. You sold that company and that was all before. We got to the point in your career where you met lady Gaga Right. Yes. My first management business I ended up. Building add up after work for Puffy plus started managing the artists Eve and then met my co-founder irving and we built up a company in Philadelphia, which was. Really Cool Boutique talent management company. And after four years we sold it to a company, called sanctuary group out of UK, so that was sort of like the furs exit opportunity to had as entrepreneurs, and now coming out of that let I was particularly struck by the very first time I heard it was this point where you were at when Lady Gaga came into your life. And that is that you had ups at that point you downs at that point and you were bottoming out..

"Exactly you know so I think I was motivated to get out of there as quickly as possible and. So that that motivation help work, but also I think. In terms of education dropped OUTTA school in Eleventh. Grade I would go to. I would go to the library. A few times a week and just learn about subjects that I wanted to learn about and so I've always been his curious person in this perpetual learner just couldn't do it. And the typical school structure, so that was one of those. Things that. I learned about myself. very early on. A perpetual learner, but from a structural standpoint just not. The typical educational system structures. What do you think your motivation comes from? You know because try. If you look over the long arc of your career, you've had such passion and a drive. No matter what you've done, you've completely applied yourself. Is that a nate? Is it learned? A think I got lucky because I. Fell in love with hip hop culture. You know from the time I was. As far back as I remember and so you know whether it was break-dancing whether it was the style close graffiti culture. Music and DJ and it was like this thing that was happening as hip hop was coming onto the scene that I was just so enamored with and inspired by so Ma Ma fuel has always been inspiration and and. So I've always followed that so. I got lucky enough to fall in love with music early and The artists that I've managed you know were mostly artists that I've been really really inspired by the actual art in so like I was never driven financially where you know I thought okay. I could get rich doing this or anything like that. It was really driven by just a passion of of an culture music. So, let's talk about the actual thing you did early on with musicians in later with tech companies now it gets a little of both. I was reading this piece about you and in it. You're quoted as saying. This job is about believing when no one else does. And I want to know where your commitment comes from free to believe yourself over everybody else. Yeah. I think because I've been underdog all my life. I think I'm naturally in the corners of the underdogs, and so I you know I know what it feels like when you're trying to get an idea out of your head, or when you worked on something so hard, and you just got to get those first couple of people on board, or if you need somebody just to kind of be a voice for you and kind of push you and motivate you or motivate other people on your behalf, and so I just naturally fell into that role as a manager, just an advocate for artists I cared about. You know so when I knew the music was good. I wanted everybody else to hear to music. So I was personally gone around passing out a cassette tapes, or CDs or flyers. Two shows a still do that now as an artist at I love the first person. To send out songs on email or invite people to shows up come this advocate and then natural. Invest in entrepreneurs. You know because ideas that entrepreneurs have. Sometimes. Is that same idea that I I compare it to an artist having this idea about a song that you know you just gotTa get it out of you, and sometimes like that would entrepreneurs, so we like to be at I. You know check in to that company or that I call that that that entrepreneur makes when you know. They have a new idea or they trying to figure out a problem, so that's why I get my my my fuel. My fire from. So early on before the entrepreneurs, and even before lady Gaga. How did you get started rapping in promoting other people?.

"Levels and an end of the day. I knew that Did appreciate and respect the fact that I'm briefly to to be an assistant. Were you know I am? I didn't feel the pressure of winning and I say that because I had supreme confidence in myself and then when I went to Iowa we we got You know a number of players. That probably wouldn't have gotten had. I been at teeny so You know that goes with his. You're at Florida. You know. Don's at South Carolina. Whatever I mean. It's it's about the players but I know that I would have done. I just wanted to coach. Yes I did refill due respect A sense of responsibility with everything that I do I don't necessarily feel pressure I do feel like Of responsibility a a necessity for other bland coaches to be an example. Be a beacon of hope to to allow them to get an opportunity. Because I know if I do battle someone is GonNa get chance because of the success that we've had somebody you know that it's a black coach will get an opportunity because of our success and in that response to -bility Was passed on to to myself. Do I think we need a whole our kids to a higher standard? Yes I do. Think data coaches right on on if via Lau our players to do some of this stuff or safe on stuff on social media over act out a certain way It comes right back to me. Unruly where this where that was. Sometimes kids just being kids. Kids are doing what they what they do in their own households if they come to South Carolina. They know they have to. They have to do things. Certain way again says a certain look. It has a certain sound hazard seal. And mostly I will say this. Or black coaches coaches. We have to be disciplinarians to that too. Whatever its core value your principal. I feel like you know I grew up in a household where I had a stroke mother. You know who who ran her household a certain way and I know what came out of it because of who post today island at that we hear it all the time like lethal our players. They're like you know you know their their furniture saying we don't WanNA come South Carolina. But we do that absolutely right because you know we're trying to prepare you for the rest of your lives like you're you're whether you're you got a big black body or small black body or short black body or you got to your black body you're going to be a black young person old adult You'RE NOT GONNA BE. You're not going to be seeing like everybody else. So you got an attorney. Learn HOW TO NAVIGATE CREATE HABITS. That will train race. So people can see you for who you are. If if they got hard to do that if they don't then you gotta you gotTa Be Gotta. Have you have no shortcomings that that seapaul everybody has shortcomings but one was deep out in places which will deter you from get an I? Honestly you know. We're not coaching. I didn't really look at myself. Oh I'm add to the black coach number. I didn't look at it like that but being around this game. As long as I've been around the game people make you look look at yourself and look at the color skin and that's so unfair to the game. It's totally unfair. Because this basketball I picked up a basketball. The projects northeasterly you know why colleague counterpart picked up a ball wherever they picked up the ball whether it's inner city what is rural we in picked up his basketball and we got good at it and we got so good at it that we're at the teaching it. Now we become coaches so now we have to be stewards of our gang is in you know announce stewards of of hoping that we give other lack. Athlete did not paternity coach this level. Because it's few and far between so you feel responsibility to do it the right way. Not Because I've been given this opportunity because I still although my mother's been gone for three years. I Still WanNa do her crowd. That's an excellent point. Done both both. You coaches have done a tremendous job in recruiting the last interviews. I did with you. I ask you about your created. The number one recruiting class. And you talked about some key element that you look for when you recruit what what are some of those elements that you look at well. Here's the Has Evolved over my twenty year career as a coach. When I first got into coach I wanted the most talented kid that we could get in. Sometimes that didn't work out but as I got more into this profession. You've you figure out what works and what doesn't work in in works. Twenty years ago didn't may not work. Tenure continue sees this surely nineteen twenty years in your season. You evolve as a coach figure out what you what you WanNa tolerate and what you don't WanNa tolerate and I just feel like nowadays We've lookit the relationship that a recruit has with their parents in an indicator of the type of respect that you're going to garner from that young lady because if they don't respect their parents and they talked appeared any kind of way if their pulse. No social media. Ab CON way. That is a true mark of their character. So I got I got to think long and hard whether or not I want to bring somebody in our program that this active parents I won't anymore. My heart went out to young people that were like that if we if we can help them change just changed a little bit of who they are and how they lash out they can go back into neighborhoods. Change a mass of people but sometimes it takes too long or longer than four years for somebody to change kind of the core of who they are and the defense mechanisms that they use the lash out at people So parents parents are key in my whole recruiting young people nowadays and we got some great out fortunate enough to have some great parents but we also once they get here. We continue that relationship with payers because they are a car of the village. And we don't know everything. I don't know wha- kid comes in eighteen or nineteen years old or sometimes seventeen you know that pair has been with them for seventeen years. They know a lot of things in how to deal with their their their child their daughter than I do so some sometimes. I need a little bit help so I check. I check in a couple of times a month distant. Make sure they're OK in their their their daughter is okay and I think that's worked out. That's an element dynamic. Has worked out well for US over the past few years in South Carolina. You've been doing it for forty nine years. Well of knowledge. What are you looking for in your recruiting of young women? Well I mean much like don set of you know because if the kid if player doesn't respect their parents we want hard work you know. The there was a time when I remember one parent to me like The only person that my daughter will listen to issue a look for us to to establish a good relationship. A trusting relationship institute any street and yet When when it all said and done I wanna see I wanNA know that. Their parents are involved. Because I will tell the plant players right from the beginning that If the person isn't doing what they need to do that I want to reach out to the parents and I told him that in front of in front of the the the player so that they know that if I have a problem one reach out to to mom were dead because this is the way it goes you know we know that the records is a is a tough school academically. And we expect you to go to classes. We expect. You should go to the train. The tutoring whole thing But yeah it. It's it's about respecting US restricting. The parents for they can't possibly respect us if they don't respect their moms and DADS and And coaches we were watching carefully. You know how they come off the floor how they relating to each person out walked out with some homes because the the player would say what you know like. I know all about you and you know what I'm not worried about the team not worried about you. Know how we get along because they knew that they were good. But that wasn't enough. You know you have to have.

"And having this big pile of money who stood up pay. We struck it rich. You know it's probably not enough to pay for some pancakes or whatever but long story short. We didn't have anything but we had what was most important. Internet is a desire to compete and The belief that that we were as good as anybody that was there that was simple as that in dawn. You went to three final fours as a player even to the national championship game and then as a coach she went on and won the national championship in two thousand seventeen. What was it that you to from your experience as a player that allowed you or helped you in building a championship programs while Thought Debbie Way Job at coaching. Us up in getting us to the final four. When you're there for the first time you're literally happy to be there so when you get the overtime you don't win you're like you know either is not in the cards or you know what was the separator so when when I was able to go to the first final four as a coach I wanted to that final. Four saying we're not we're happy to be here but we're not GONNA act like we're happy to be here. We're going to act like it's business. Keep our same routine as we had done all season long so we will fall into the pit fall that we did. As you know as a team like like GENU- Didn't give it again. You WanNa you WANNA stay true to who have been 'cause everybody's excited four last teams play as a weekend of the the college basketball season. Everybody's happy to be there but a team that could it more the newer their norms. The normal self is a team. That's probably GONNA the win it in not get ahead of the pressure. That's being applied plan on the big stage of college basketball season now. The three of three African American women That have have coached to the to the highest degree to all three of us have been pursued for job. Right Air. Lot of coaches out there nowadays. That are busy hunting that next job. No what am start with. You coach Stringer. Do you feel like we're the attributes or the thing that you demonstrated that made you made these programs pursue to go from Cheney to Iowa Iowa to rutgers let let me just say this I I never applied for a position ever and so today I felt that my work because wasn't interested in going anywhere quite I Love Cheney state you know it was a dominant Mexico and It was it was pride and joy. You know we were. We took great pride in overcoming the odds. It didn't matter did we didn't have money or Didn't have you know a bus to take us. You know here there or the the great meals that everybody else tended to. Have you know it was it was like we we we played with an attitude and our our mindset? Was You know we have had a chip on his shoulder? Quite frankly That we didn't have anything didn't matter you know here. We were playing. One of the schools was Tennessee. Tennessee you know with with whatever our many twenty thousand students and ten he was with six thousand students were at the time. Probably four thousand students long story short. We didn't have a lot but But what is most important? Is that That we believed in ourselves and I think that the players believed in the US is as a coaching staff. And you know when you win people are GonNa come after anyway so I had an opportunity to To close some of the teams that were from the USA basketball as well as The opportunity to take it to the next level and really We didn't we didn't have it and I didn't count on friends because I didn't have a what you call friends like. We have the women of Color Organization which allows us to communicate with each other which. We didn't have that before you know. It was myself in I think coach Washington that was at Kansas And that was it and not and probably by the time we went to be as I don't know if Washington was still coaching at at the time. So we didn't have the you know the the friendships that are now established and that makes a world of difference If it just does it it's a lonely position to be in but You know I think as long as you this in what I did. Is I focused on my team and my my family don how. `Bout You I've been very fortunate in it I got into coaching when someone saw something in me that it myself. I just didn't really see myself coaching basketball. It wasn't that I did have great coaches as examples. I just didn't see myself being a supervisor. In twenty two year olds and I was. I was when I got him to coach. I was twenty nine years old when I took the job at at Temple. But here's what I did. No I knew I was drawn challenges and also knew that I love basketball. A whatever the challenges of turning the program around or the challenges of coaching whatever was thrown at me I knew a headed against ability stamina mental stamina to to overcome and then when I started coaching at Temple I mean I really liked it like you know. The the relationships that bill with our players were some dysfunction did not anticipate that part of it. I only saw turning the program around the winning just winning being successful. I didn't see really understand what really went into it. And when you when you dive into coaching you really find now what makes people successful in Atlanta town as you. You work hard you part of it is the known. The unknown is who you're doing with who you're doing it for an went when those things are lined up you have some success and I you know I've I've had great people around me. Great great people that have allowed to grow in this game. Allow me to be my Itself like I don't ever been anybody other than myself. Maybe probably a year a year or two here in South Carolina Win The former that I used to help temple become successful didn't work and then I'm like. Oh that's not working because these players aren't receiving it the same way. That was giving it back at Temple so either. Either YOU'RE GONNA lose a whole team as far as trends or wasn't at Providence. Revelant back then but it could have been. We weren't successful. I wasn't listening enough. I wasn't Somebody Lisa Boyer to say. Hey you know what you lost. You lost them. They're not listening to you anymore. Look at their faces. You know at at to hear that made me really upset and I probably use a couple of choice words but in using those choice words. She made me think out. Been home at night thinking you know. Gosh she she might be ready Boys in the business for a long time so she had much more experience at coaching. The united once I got past my emotional outbursts in got into you don't Nitty Gritty of why we coach we call the dream merchants. We coach to serve we. Don't we call it the wind as well but until you're able to get those things lineup nucleate Illinois your Wi will get to the end result Fortunate in much like coach Stringer. I'd never applied for job either. And that's the place in which very few people have had been and I will go a step further than say. Probably not any other. Black coaches were a white their own. You know they're all ticket to go wherever they wanted to go caroline at. I like to hear view. You know if you apply for any jobs or or your success took you to wherever you wherever you needed to go to W. in other places or your you know where you are now and not applied for jobs until after I got fired at Florida and after then I reached out or some job that obviously I didn't get you know it's at times it can be frustrating because after you've proven they can win and you had missed that for you and you didn't win enough and not taking into consideration all the other things that you did. It's harder to get back in that but being espn and having the opportunity to watch and see how many so many other coaches do things and learn a thing has been a wealth of knowledge. Coach stringer I remember in. Orlando the black coaches get together for conventions and when I walked in to the hotel you were sitting at a table with George Raveling John. Tainting the head coach Washington. And you're in coach Freeman and I had just become the Restricted earnings coach at Tennessee. Making sixteen thousand dollars and you out to me. You are the first African American woman that Pat Summitt has ever hired and I hadn't even thought about it at the time from that point on I felt a responsibility. I gotTa be good at my job so that others would have the opportunity. How much pressure do you feel being an african-american woman that you have to be successful when I ask you? Coach Stringer first and then dawn net. Well let let me say this Another on driven Much like like Don said on driven I'm driven to to to competition at the highest level. So it really wasn't a strain you know but I really felt that With the teams in the way that I had had them presented before everybody. Because I knew that we were always going to be on stage and people are going to make a comment about anything and everything you know our hair. You know the way we play the game you know to to. To a great extent did not allow us to run and do the things that our team was very very capable of. We could have blown people out but I didn't because the first thing that everybody was saying is okay Then the just as just a wild just ends up down before and shoots we. We were very calculated. And we wanted to go away from stereotypes. It was the way that we presented ourselves as much like Don said that every time that we played we wanted to To present ourselves professionals. And that's where me as an African American coast knew that everything that we did was looked upon and I just wanted to make our people to understand that. There's no question about it. I knew that we were one of those teams that that has been around for a long time. And so everything we would be accepting anything other than just play the game straight up and And and that was it but I did know that This was an opportunity for our players to go on to other.

Now this week when announcing the dates of the budget on the eleventh of March the chancellor's slurs such avid once again reaffirmed its commitment to leveling up the regions of the UK. Think leveling up has become a catchphrase of the government of light and sort of being widely interpreted tate as chance for the government to spend more in regions particularly in the north where they did particularly well in the election recently to rebalance the economy away from London slightly but what is leveling up. And what does it really involve. And is it possible. We'll find out.

We've heard various visits to the northeast. I think genuinely. They will obey infrastructure capital funding coming forward and a budget for the north. I think where it gets trickier is around public services you know. Why are they gonNA find the money money to genuinely make people fareless public services? Having spent on the some extent is a regional inequality think certainly why local government is concerned. And I've got a big questionable coca you know. What are they gonNA do about the state that local government is aimed to put more money into it? All going to east of five funding review. It was done unless you choose anything but for in terms of how the government funding redistributed more broadly. There is a why question about how this government's he's going to level up public services when at the same time they're saying that you know they're not gonNA put up taxes Saudi job is making it clear that he is going to keep a very tight grip on dates. Day spending stuff. That's the bit that I got the big question Malkovich Jamesy sort of express your doubts in the Times this week about the idea. Instead of throw infrastructure money at the problem and that will somehow level up regions can solve explain. Why well firstly? I'm perfectly happy with. It's more infrastructure spending funded by borrowing if needs be. It makes perfect sense. I mean I have to extend about whether or not the just building. Bridges and bypasses and reconnecting railway lines is going to be enough to address the core of this is productivity big and boring the Deeming it is being from the from my in my terms the warm tropical sites. Because I'm from I'm from for assembling an earlier in the week in think Grand Champs went to. We were obliged blinds valley. The blind went to worry. That was it. We all knew either at least was coming. And he's more or less promised to reopen the blonde youth railway line. Now that will cost to me if I drink of money so you re run trains from from blind Ashington ear an old castle now that will be nice. It will. Some money will make some people happy. It made lissome votes for if the jury pouty and Blah. I'm not sure it will close significantly the gap in Productivity Z.. And the amount of stuff produced one every hour of work done in the northeast versus. This is east. which is I mean you northeast proclivities getting only of a sixty sixty percent of Lonzo visa zone as as a technical question? But that's enough. You have to look at workforce development skills but my my real points opposes. It's it's about the narrative it's about in that you were very quickly. Westminster has decided that the entire election result. Basically boils down to the fact that Gosh we've just discovered there are some folk in this place called the north little bit unhappy about the fact that Oscar people in the south east of all the money and all the shining China all the shiny concrete and steel. And maybe if we build if he builds bridges I'll give them shiny glass beads or something. Then they'll be happy showed up and go away and vote for us again and I don't I think even the best shiniest set of infrastructure possibly even better public services will be enough to to reconnect the bits of the countries that currently feel like they are needed. Fromm this place. Speaking from media loved yield Cozy Westminster agreed weapons. Seems to just decided to the ounce to this. This is the plough capital spending and see. You know lack behind tons of reality obsolete. It's it's kind of return to Joel Joel. Showed I mean you know it assume that was originally firing infrastructure money in Manchester when he was in the Treasury but at the same time keeping you know holding down revenue spending and backed out seatbelts We may end up but I agree with James. But it's you know it's just spending money on bridges and worry lines it's not going to be sufficient to rebalance productivity levels. Make people save lives. I think the challenge that Boris Johnson. This is something within the space warm parliament. That makes people in those places failure Taylor so something has materially better and actually if you don't plan with significant amount of money into public services chances all at sea. There isn't necessarily going to be an awful lot to show for it because if you do build around way line or you do build a bridge you know these things take a long time to sign off and they take a long time bell so when we got to twenty twenty running full what what will they be able to demonstrate about James. You get the sense. That hasn't really learned the lessons of the northern powerhouse of Cameron Osborne Aero they should be paying a bit more Lord Hanson to it. Because I I can't say it's been like a roaring success can they. I think there are some Christians. An generally alluded to them in the first. The first comments remade one of of the missing. Bits of this puzzle is how central government relates to local government and the and the mayors and in a sense. It doesn't me it's slightly inconsistent to say we want to talk to the north the provinces to you to do better for them and he has some you hear construction spending with at least coming up with a answer on the question of well. What about the evolution of power? May Well be you just. You got a good argument is actually. We need effective delivery of power. If you have a government in Westminster that is probably serving those parts. What's the country? But I think that has to be part of the conversation. It's currently. It's not there I don't you know there's a little bit of you. I'm not much significant visible Involving conservative thinking about you know about what comes after the northern powerhouse equally those are should point out. There's a there's a sort of question on the line because I mean Joe Joe you veterans of the boom days would pointed out that they tried. I mean actually tried to have other powerhouses particularly in South Yorkshire and actually they were century told. No thank you very much. We don't we don't want to deal with you by yeah. Sheffield particularly was regarded. Being unfriendly. Also leads leads was the place they tried. They tried to the offer to offer the Paris deal to leads. Denver was no thank you so eager W. has to be cooperation on both sides. I think that's that's the missing the missing the big missing at the moment I think is is structured. I mean that's always talking about deletion white paper and they were talking about A pouch conferencing manifesto. I think what it looks to me like at the moment is that it is a kind of continuation about such a patchwork if if you want some powers come and bid to his those powers kind of situation. I'm for Manchester. Obviously it's a concern because all the talk about getting everybody else the level of powers Christ Grace Manchester was always looked three steps ahead and so so. Where are we going with this? Like what are we next. And if all you're doing is going to bring up other places to the level of Paris that we will then will and it makes sue fails very much kind of continuity and I completely agree but I haven't haven't seen any evidence yet there is any kind of really serious original thinking going on with the conservative policy about serious English deflation and parallel with If if you look in the way that they have even the extensive devolution did we have already which is affected local earth each. That's also with with us. You have an issue about whether you are actually serious about rebalancing power as well as well power resources because if you look at the time is an interesting interesting example about why you know. He's been paraded this thing. That will supply the intellect behind towns and particularly places that the Tories were seeking to win. And now we'll be taking see see but if you look at the small print essentially what they've been told he's a small amount of money underground to draw for bed and then you commit into we. I will tell you whether or not you can have that. That's an deletion in any meaningful sense south. Exactly the same as it's always been a bit into the Treasury over. DFT or they might sail Jay Eh. I'm crossing my fingers stuff not deeply power James Biblical Mint perhaps should have a little bit of credit talking about moving officials and certain diplomas in the treasury very open. Also we've got Abassi getting people out of the bullets put it in the face of dominate. Cummings way decent. That's a meaningful noticing wet window-dressing on I'm surprised priced hasn't been more conversation about the treasury. Me You mentioned. Don't cummings last week. We had another break comings and excitement about the the demolition of why I told and bootcamp civil servants oral old arrest. I'm slightly surprised that in that. We haven't heard more about some reform. All break-up break-up of cultural change at the Treasury because I mean if you get into Nick Negrete of it we will now. We all know Green Book. We only the great you. The Greens Felicitous Sir. How the Treasury Desai's business based on the green structure projects but yeah th-the tour comes but changing the Treasury rules that essentially how how perspective spending assessed which some people say excuse skew spending tools? These some people say no actually. It's the politics spangles age these anyway. That is not small small thing. If you really want to shake government to recast the government machine to do better and do differently then stop by blowing up the Treasury because that is power resides ultimately where all decisions Goldstone is. We're talking about the the refusal to hand money and control over to local government dot org little staunton ends in the Treasury Genyk..

"I'm really looking forward to who <hes> you know learning a new office assistant <hes> defensive systems are just no learning that xs no part of it and player development. I'm really looking forward to you <hes> learning <hes> different different training. I'm really i'm really excited about learning the player development piece even today. I've just <hes> having opportunities listen. It'd be a sponge <hes> working with the different system coaches that are here. They have so much knowledge. Oh my gosh the n._b._a. They have so much knowledge they have. There's so many players right <hes> it's triple probably quadruple what we had in you know <hes> in our system so i'm just really looking forward to that part of it that piece <hes> and just just to be around great people like being just you just i just love being around people that just love the game have passion for the game and and i feel like i'm gonna learn so much just by being around. <hes> you know this group 'cause a lot. There's definitely a lot of people in the organization and that's just <hes> in college. We don't have the as many as many pieces earlier today but didn't have as many pieces as far as five video coordinator six assistant coaches. There's so many a lot of moving pieces and that's organization so i'm just looking forward to learn as much as i can but the player development in the extra something. I'm super excited to learn. I know we gotta let you go because we you told you fifteen minutes fifteen but this is just so interesting and we're just decided for you but i do have one more and it's a double so <hes> you mentioned in that you had aspirations of being a head coach and i'm very curious mental. The fans are too <hes> if there had been any opportunities for you to be a head coach in the n._c._w._a. Because ah i find it difficult to believe that all that time you spit on the sidelines for one of the best coaches that this game has ever seen nobody has ever reached out out and bill. I hey like come. Come coach for us. So have you had that opportunity in the second part to that question would be <hes> so those who are still assistant coaches in associate coaches and are looking for their opportunity or waiting for their moment. What advice would you give to them. You know about patients about what they couldn't do and how they can position themselves themselves to one day take their game and their career to the next level <hes> <hes> i have had an opportunity to <hes> interview at a at a couple of different places this as an associate coach <hes> notre dame <hes> but it really great places. I've i've made some great connections <hes> with a couple of different schools in eighties and and i just feel like the timing was a little bit offer me <hes> one. I think it was maybe right <hes> right after jason's freshman year so honestly he's a sophomore so a lot about it was a a little bit of timing and i feel like you know everything. Life is just about guys timing to be honest <hes> so those though it was a couple of different reasons but it just i've met and had had some really great interviews <hes> so that was more family family decisions for me <hes> and you know i have a lot of loyalty for notre dame and a lot of loyalty for coach mcgraw <hes> <hes> and so that was a big part of it you know <hes> just really just being a really great position and notre dame <hes> with the talent that we have count talent that we had of the times of the years i was there so a lot of loyalty and loyalty for coach <hes> and then for your second question <hes> my advice <hes> it would be honestly. I just going to give kind of overall advice. That definitely wanted to make sure i said is <hes> i've had great mentors i have had i've surrounded myself with great mentors this entire time <hes> and i liked adventure them outside of coach mcgraw cokely's washington carol owens kevin the gus and teach mcgaw <hes> they were all coaches at notre dame either recruited me my position coach <hes> and you know all successful than head coaches..

"Share. Neal's please tell me to mind my business <hes> if it's too much but there are two areas that i think people are are wondering about as it pertains to the work work load for a top assistant like you at the college level and that of what you'd be doing in the n._b._a. So tell us a little bit first of all about your job description because i'm not going to just jump to the money in life balance quite yet but <hes> that's where i'm going next like when you look at what's comparable. You don't have time of money you're making but i what are your responsibilities and then wasn't attractive monetarily in terms of just maybe having a little life balance. It's because you don't have to go home every night recruits on the phone so right. I'm out there but start with with job. Description would be yeah. Well <hes> definitely only just very similar to notre dame from what i've been told the honestly what we're having a coach's retreat yesterday was my first day <hes> so i had orientation i was i was i felt like i felt like a freshman. Honestly i was like i was the first day of class because i'm just walking to a whole situation really not knowing anyone so <hes> but so i will i say to say so. We have a retreat next week though a little bit more kind of how i think we have we have six assistance on sas and so how close jenkins <hes> there's there's going to be up the responsibilities <hes> so there's a lot of player development in every day. <hes> you know i'm working with different people today. It was the first thing i gr- jae crowder order so i think every day i think you're gonna find a way to kind of has <hes> opportunities to work with a lot of different players so not just the point guard so i think that's really that's gonna be awesome stars far from my home development as a coach but just having an opportunity to work with a lot of different players so player development is definitely on court. <hes> you know scouting very similar to notre dame. I like you said that the recruiting part that is out you know i have no responsibilities with recruiting so that's gonna be a lot different so it's gonna be a lot of a lot of basketball a lot of film study <hes> <hes> you know even with the guys and <hes> you know that kind of thing but i will honestly will no more once i can actually get <hes> you know with with the with my boss and and kind of see how he's gonna have this year look like so there is a possibility you'll do scouts like you'll actually present scouts. That's what i'm assuming okay again again like i. I'll i'll find that out but in the interviewing process that was what was said so be scouting so i don't know how they're going to divvy up the you know who gets which go through that kind of thing with being six assistant so we'll see i will let you know. Maybe we have a little a round christmas time. I can tell you that i was going to be right. You'll be you'll be <music> yeah right now. That's that's my assumption so but i'm you know i'm ready to work and grind so i'm gonna do whatever's necessary. How i wanna help out as much as i can so let me do whatever i'm and with having a son and jason and he's the co corrective wrong. He's committed to purdue right that okay so he's got one more year with having a son. How does this position 'cause. We talk a lot about women and having work like balance like disease to help a little bit with you having more time for him or is it going to be challenging with all the traveling with the n._b._a. How do you see that working out. Yes well well. Are we are so blessed that <hes> a he's had a prep school right now so he's not with me so he's in a prep school beer. It's like look for indiana was right in in writing between south bend in chicago <hes> and so that's a i mean it's it's definitely a sacrifice..

You know in star blazers skirts or something like that but i'm sure it's gonna change every year. I feel like my my style has evolved so sometimes. I don't even know that designer. If i feel like it's something that fits i'm like oh. That's a good one. Yes the list list out do shopping at the iraq. I didn't make that final four months at nordstrom rack. I'm making a hero okay.

I've also been outspoken about the higher women women of color in head coaching especially at the power level. You saw dos daily when a championship you saw carolyn peck when a championship like you've seen what vish ringer has done it. The success comes but this past year with the number of power five jobs open at the division level. No-one women of color were hired and now i'm not saying you hire just because it's a woman of color but you'd have to start asking yourself some some tough questions.
