'Woke' Media Fails to Ask NBA Coach About China

"Com. Josh cross how are you and NBA fan? Somewhat. I mean, I kind of lost interest in the NBA when wizards don't make the playoffs at all. But yeah, I follow the NBA. I like basketball. Say you know, Popovich is allegedly this brilliant guy. He's very good basketball coach, but yesterday, Gruden gets fired from misogynistic homophobic emails and Popovich compares Columbus to Hitler and doesn't get asked a question about the genocide in China and the Uyghurs in his complicity in that. What's wrong with the NBA sports media? Well, not just the sports media, it's the leadership of the NBA, which I think they've suffered the most of all the four sports leagues because they got the most political, all the leaks of some extent have gotten more political than they once were, but the NBA really just like, I remember during the bubble season they put Black Lives Matter on the court. They let players offer their political takes on things left and right. And that's not a great place to be. We want one of the top roles of building a good team and effective team is that you're not divided by politics. You're one team and you don't talk about these issues that have nothing to do with the MBA. Popovich has a long history of offering his political takes. This becomes a no surprise to me that he says something like that. Well, I don't mind is giving his hot political takes, but if he's gonna give it take on Hitler, genocide, slavery in Columbus, somebody ought to ask him about the Uighurs and the ongoing genocide in China from which he profits yes and so much of sorry, someone should ask the silver and someone should ask a lot of the players who play in China, you know, what they think about that. Not so much more relevant, timely issue for the NBA, at least, but you're right, that there's sort of a double standard and you don't get the type of scrutiny. You're going to open everything up to politics. You might as well should be talking about issues that directly affect the NBA and the bottom line. And if you're going to hijack if you're going to hijack a basketball press conference to rant about Hitler in Columbus, you're going to get asked to China question if you have a real

Is Your Business Idea Good Enough?

"By saying. I don't even like the term good idea or bad idea. 'cause good and band is relative. Really it's subjective. If you ask me having a rock for a pet is a bad idea but it was a popular thing in the eighties. Millions were sold so it doesn't really matter if i think something's a good idea or a bad idea. What really matters is what the market response to is. Her need in the market. Is their consumers out there that want that product idea. That's all that really matters now. I'm not saying there's this thing is brilliant ideas there are but they're not really the dictator or the indicator of success of the business. My good friend. Justin jackson actually puts it really. Well he says ideas are more like a multiplier rather than the defining factor. There other things around your idea that really matter like your implementation how you execute the idea the team behind it the service around the experience in delivering that idea all these things will contribute to. It's success how good that idea is will become a multiplier in that success which means you can have an idea. That's not earth shattering. That's not really revolutionary but will be a good business because of the things that the business owner did around that idea.

Lessons I Learned After COVID Killed My Conference

"The first lesson. I learned is that. Don't use optimism as your guide meaning that you know. We were super optimistic. That we're going to still the conference when we went into lockdown. You know we didn't realize how long lockdown was going to be but It's always good to have a disaster plan. It's funny because i know this in my software company we always have these. What if conversations and Center standard operating procedures. But we need to have the same in the conference we need to think. Hey what if is in happened way before it would give me more time to have options or to Make some changes provide some options to the attendees but basically when i found out we're three weeks out from the conference so i had limited choices to what i can do. Second i learned was. I knew in that moment. The best thing i can do is i need to communicate. I need to communicate with my people. The attendees And i just needed to make sure that they're included in any decision and that i let them know what's going on so they don't feel like they're in the dark. I was very conscious. These people trusted me. They give me their money. I want to make sure that they know that. I got their back and that you know there are some options. I'm looking at when we actually had a discussion on that call before the cancellation was confirmed. Because the accession of lockdown of what are some options. And what. I was pleasantly surprised by how open people were there were like. Hey we totally get it. I understand they're all entrepreneurs zeno how these things happen and They presented some ideas from creative ideas. I didn't think of as alternatives creative ideas in terms of different dates. Different locations Because it became clear that this is not going to happen This oscar will not happen in the winter at least this year because The lockdown will extend past the winter season. So the idea of going skiing together is just not going to happen so by having open communication. Just putting your cards on the table. Hey these are options. This is will happen. This were our monies deposited. What's going on. this is what's happening. It makes it super clear to people to understand all right. These are options. Let's work with

The Importance of Having A Clear Vision Towards Your Goals

"The end of the day it starts with a clear vision. I didn't make this up. I actually picked up from out of all people. Arnold schwarzenegger arnold schwarzenegger is probably the best example. I can think of when it comes to vision. He says it's very important to have a very clear. Simple vision that you can look at the. You can imagine your head in a second because that's your driving force for him. He had multiple visions so at start. It was becoming mr olympia. Which is the highest title for a bodybuilders. And then he wanted to become an a list actor and then he the fill that vision that he wanted to be the governor of california which is the largest state in the us. And i think the eighth largest Economy by gdp in the world. And i picked this up in his book. Total recall his autobiography And it's really important because there are days that are tough. There are days that are harder than others were. You're required to do things each just don't feel like doing Your might be a little burnt out. You might be a little bit tired and might be dealing with are annoying thing and I often have to go back to the vision and say to myself okay. This is what i'm doing this for. This is why it's worth me going through this slog a little bit because it's one step closer to my vision by doing this. It gets me closer to my vision. And that's how arnold schwarzenegger puts it together like every rep. He did got him. Closer to mr olympia. Every set he did gone closer to that. You know that title.

So what's the point. And then the threatening holdout thing which i had heard about about a month ago. Yeah it was met with kind of indifference like all right. Go ahead hold out man But we don't know so why don't you take it in any direction. You think the headline part of this story is right now. The headline part of the story.

There's all kinds of takes. You can do with this but it starts when they try to trade him for harden and when you try to trade somebody you go down the road you actually think you got him which i think both of us had until that day that harden was going affiliate was the rap and simmons knows all this so it starts there.

What if questions to identify potential problems and devise a plan to avoid them. What is red flagging. Well the more you learn about the causes of business failures the better. The small business administration says the twenty percent of new businesses fail within the first two years and forty five percent of new businesses failed within the first five years. The good news.

Side Hustling Habits That Helped Me Quit My Job

"Let's talk about working on that side hustle. A business not going to build itself. You have to put in the time dedicated time. During the week i would spend about ninety minutes an hour to two hours on building. My side hustle. So gilmore on five probably done with dinner by six a relaxed for an hour and then from seven to nine ish. I would work on my side hustle. And then i would move on with the rest of the night go to bed start the next day very little wiggle room right very little time for dilly-dally i know but i knew this was gonna take for me to be able to build side hustle. That was gonna launch me into the next phase of my entrepreneurial career which is fulltime entrepreneurship. So i spent by ninety minutes every single day and i spent at least eight hours during the weekend so either one full day or four hours each day. Working on my side hustle. The reason why. I did it every day and not to say hey. I'm going to spend all weekend long and not do anything during the week is because it's again very important to have momentum to build upon something day after day if you forget about your business for a few days four five six days and then jump right back into it takes a while to get back into it and to remember what you where you left off and worded what to do you kind of lose focus so one of that momentum so i spent as much time as i can every day even sometimes just an hour but at least i can build upon the next

Different Methods for Structuring Teams in an Agency

"I think dan if i was agency today i would hire a bunch of specialized people. I don't think i'd hire jack-of-all-trades you know. One of the common positions that people come to us and asked us to help them hire is an operations manager because it's kind of last holdout. Most founders are like the operations manager. They are the person that holds it all together. They're kind of the hub in the middle of this wheel and then they have all these spokes so the most sincerely hey. I'm kind kinda pulling the team together. Like i have all these contractors. But like i really need to go out and do something. Higher value generally as business development or sales so. I need somebody to come in here and do this operations role. One of the things. I think is interesting. Is this concept that was brought up in the forum and spin written a lot about on the web is are you going to have a hierarchical structure or a pod structure and of course there's like overlap between what the two things are but typically a hierarchical structure would have that founder. Ceo and then the operations manager. And then say you'd have an seo group with like the top seo person and then you know seo assistant number one number two and there'd be these sort of this hierarchical management of all the seo in the company goes through this like seo lead and then there's this alternative concept of pods where you have like an seo person designer. A sales lead all in one pod and then that pod manages a certain number of clients and at least for us as like bootstrapping a relatively new service business. We've only been sewing recruiting services for twelve months. The pod concept really resonated with us both from strategy perspective. You look at what you're able to charge for your service and then you say okay. Well you know ballpark. I'm trying to get my labor cost to less than thirty percent of what i'm delivering the service for so that you know. Have a margin leftover after all your expenses of executing the service and so then you figure out like what that fraction analyzed pod is going to be and you try to get your costs there and this is the way you can sort of brainstorm new businesses. So i think it's kind of interesting if you look at like a traditional agency you'd say like a recruiting agency say all right. Well i sold this to a client. Now i'm going to have a recruiter. Do all the work and like day cost this and so your rates are going to be a lot higher than if you had this cross functional pod that can essentially split up the work and do it for multiple different clients.

How to Make More Time for Health & Wellness

"Today's topic is how to make more time for your health and wellness. Here's the truth. You can't make more time but you can allocate more time. See the thing is that we were all given the same amount of time every single day. We're all even twenty four hours. How we use at twenty four hours is up to us now. We all got a lot to do. We all have responsibilities. But you gotta look at your twenty four hours like a hand that you're dealt. How are you going to use those hours. Not every hours credit equal. How you use an hour for one thing can actually get you two hours in return or net. You a positive. Roi simple example. This is if. I spent two hours writing a blog post and publishing on my blog. That's going to generate more traffic to my site and more customers than if i spent that two hours scrolling through instagram. Same two hours. But i'm investing that time in a different way to get a different result. So i want to show you how to use your twenty four hours. How to prioritize time and allocate some time to health and wellness so you can get a return on investments. You can actually get time back. And i'll show you had to do it now. I want to start by saying. I actually believe this works until i actually tried it. You have to just try it okay. You're just going to blindly. Trust the suspend disbelief for just a moment and just do it. So before i get into the strategies let me define what i mean by health and wellness. Okay when i say health. I'm talking about just being healthy. Physically mentally spiritually emotionally. Okay you need to enrich your life in those areas to be healthy. Very simple and wellness is just feeling good. Okay because you could feel good because of exercises also could feel good because you're grateful you feel positive you have a smile on your face. Your content okay. This is how i define health and wellness feeling well feeling content. These two things are going to dramatically. Impact your life and your business. As a result

Danielle and i talk very openly about how much we have learned as we have built the skin but without a traditional business background and one of the top things we end up talking about with our mentors with people that are coming to us for advice and on this show is should you get an mba or not and there is no better person to ask than you as we dig into that. I want to understand for you. What your you to your business education. Well so let me just challenge the narrative behind the question. I actually i myself do not have an mba so my career. Ethnic profile is in the liberal arts. That was a psychology major. Found this field organizational psychology when i applied to grasp the schools and really liked the way in which you apply what you learn as a liberal arts student in psychology particular to concrete professional business settings the organizations so. I've my pathway to business. Education was released through the discipline of organizational psychology organizational behavior. And i have just been able to parlay that into really interesting scholarship and the development of new interesting classes like crisis management's leadership etcetera so. That was my career. Pathway is it weird to be head of school for a degree that you yourself didn't get well. It hasn't been weird. Because i've been doing it was dean at emory for awhile. I've been now dean here for just over a year. So i think in the role as a leader so much of what you do is around understanding constituents around setting a strategy rounder titillating vision around coordinating people to align with that vision and you have to obviously knowing nothing about the core product in our case it's business education that you can do those things though yes. Some people may find it unusual. That i myself do not have an nba. But i think if you were to survey many deans of business foles might be surprised at the number that do not have mba's themselves.

"Before we get into why you should invest in video marketing. I wanna i just bust some myths alana. People don't get past their preconceived notions of oh. I don't have the talent. I don't have the equipment. I don't have the expertise to shoot professional video and be a video marketer. The top tick talker in the world. Right now is a young man named copy. Lame shoots most of his videos with this phone. Half of his videos are not even his own content. he's reacting to other videos. He makes jokes. About how people over complicate things or gimmicks or devices that make no sense. And he's got ninety. Seven million fans on tick-tock. It makes something between fifty to eighty thousand dollars up host and he doesn't say a word on his videos. No script right. No fancy equipment. No huge pre-production budget. Nothing okay. he just puts out valuable content. And that's valuable to build entertaining. It's fun you found his niche and went all in but more importantly he found a growing trend which is video marketing video. Marketing is booming. Like crazy right now. All the top social media platforms are investing in video for reason whether it's instagram whether it's facebook doing facebook lives and facebook watch linked in getting into video. Of course. tick-tock is all video and it's the number one consumed type of content on people's mobile devices. People consume video more than any other content more than texts like blog posts more than audio podcasts. More than anything. And i'm here to tell you don't sit out on the sidelines. When something like. This is booming.

Building Deal Flow from Social Media and Content Marketing

"I think a lot of modern media misses the power of tiny little niches obviously consumer media which is like you know. Mtv or cbs or gigantic audience is full of not particularly other consumers. People buy beer and fords and whatever. Those are not particularly valuable customers on the business media side and that we used to work with these companies. When i was in banking there are all these like traditional sort of business to business publications advertising age marketing week pest control monthly or whatever it is a million of these like very boring business to business publications. The reason they work even though the audience is much smaller than the mass market consumer media. Because they're so niche focused their valuable advertisers want to reach all the pest control companies. You advertising you know. Pest control monthly you can reach all them. What content marketing allows you to do with social media blog and then twitter and instagram. All that stuff would it allows you to do as a creator is to define a very narrow niche. Potentially a niche. That's so narrow that it even wouldn't support a traditional to magazine. A tiny tiny niche. Your audience numbers are going to be small. I think at the peak. I had like five thousand people a month reading my blog. No normal marketer looks about audience in his like season. Like this is ridiculous okay. It's tiny but if it turns out that if you write e extraordinarily detailed blog about the nuts and bolts of buying and renovating apartment buildings in los angeles. Yes the audience for that is going to be small but those people are highly likely to hire you as a broker to help them buy and sell buildings or hire you to manage their buildings or want to invest in your deals. It's an extraordinarily specific audience. That happens to generally speaking. We have a lot of capital and be very interested and be very likely to transact with someone who they regard as an expert insight is by speaking very specifically about a topic that has an interest to people who have means you can create for yourself an enormously powerful audience even that audience is

Why We Built a Virtual Office and How You Can Too)

"Running remote team is a lot of fun. You get to hire people from all around the world and it really works for a lot of businesses. But it's not without its challenges. One of those challenges is that it's not always simple and easy to communicate freely with your colleagues if we were all together in a room or in a shared offices easy for a walk up to somebody at their desk and ask them a quick question. This something that comes natural to us as human beings but working remotely does it naturally. Come to us to be like. Hey i'm gonna jump on shah and asked this question. It's a learned behavior. And we've been doing this for over seven years running this remote team and we wanted to be easier on our team to communicate with each other help. Each other out actually started with our customer support team at webinar ninja. We noticed that sometimes our support agents would struggle with maybe new questions. They were getting from customers new scenarios or situations that they never came across. It would put the customer service agent or ninjas as we call them customer service inches in a strange situation because it wasn't super convenient or instinctual to just jump on a chat and chat with their colleagues. Ask them a question. Way for apply while the customers waiting. This could be a live chat with a customer so we decided to pilot a program called the virtual office. What this basically means is that. We're all together on camera and mike in a virtual room. There's a lot of complicated tools to do this. bowie literally just used google. Hangouts were like. Hey what's the simplest easiest way to validate this idea of without having to sign a for anything. Let's just use google hangouts but before we rolled it out to the customer service team. We wanted to test it out as the managerial team. So myself. my co-founder nicole. Our head of customer service because of service manager. Cj as well as our senior lead agent anna joined this virtual office and we worked together co worked together on this virtual call that basically went on for as long as we're working for about a week we wanted to see how would feel. What are some of the hiccups. Some of the things that we would have to work around

"Successful companies have defined enemies and you need an enemy in your business to go after Apple's enemy is the PC Tesla's enemy. . Our fossil fuels are any cars are running on fossil fuels. . Expedience enemy is your local travelagent overcharging you for your next trip. . This is clearly defined in their marketing in their sales in their messaging, , and there's a reason why they do it. . They do it because it's important for you to define who you're not who you are. . Trying to be the opposite of and this has a lot to do with human psychology as consumers. . We know what we don't want. . We don't necessarily know what we want, , but we know what we don't want. So . automatically, , if you say, we , are not this all the things that people get annoyed by you say, yeah, , , I don't like this and you automatically resonate with their brand who's defining that problem defining enemy some of the most successful marketing has been. . Painting a business or brand against an enemy <hes>. . Sega did this in the nineties with Sega genesis pitting itself against Nintendo, , and then later Sony playstation do the same thing with crash bandicoot <hes> against Nintendo clearly saying we're going after these people some beginners beginner entrepreneurs will say, , well, , that's kind of risky. . What if that doesn't? ? Now there's no risk in that landing it's either going to resonate strongly people people are going to be like <hes> I don't know if I like that but it won't be vanilla it can't be ignored. . The worst thing in business is being ignored and that's why it's very important for you define your stance we are not this we are here because we don't like how these people are doing things. . The reason why this also works so well is because it gets in front of the idea that consumers are shopping around there comparing you against the competition and by getting in front of your saying, , Hey, , this is why were better we are not like this we're like this. . This is also common in software web flow, which , is a website building application for designers. Mainly, . , they have dedicated pages on how they compare against their competitors whether it's wordpress or squarespace they go head to head they don't shy away from it. . They say these are our competitors. . This is why we're better. . This is why we created web flow. . A lot of new businesses don't want to do this because they're afraid they think maybe Goliath is going to be down on David in the big company is going to get angry and retaliate or something like that. . No, , they're a big company. . This is. . Fair game they know it and they're dealing with our other competition as well. . They understand the people that are the top of the mountain are going to be challenged and as the underdog people love an underdog story the love seeing and undertake on the big company and say we don't like the way they're doing their bloated there <hes> you know slow they're this they're that and we're here to give you something new if you WanNa. . See a very good example of this. . It's hey dot com I mentioned in an earlier episode this week behave dot com is a new email software it's basically a. . To g? ? Mail. . Is created by <hes> the guys behind <hes> base camp, , and they clearly say that g mail is their enemy or traditional email is their enemy, , and this is why they're better and they go after the competition to go after their enemy the our enemy does this this this? ? They don't respect your privacy they make email <hes> a chore. . You waste so much time in your inbox again, , your customers. . Can really resonate with pain. . They can really resonate with things. . They hate, , we all know we hate. . So automatically when you are the person that's defining this, , they feel like this person has a solution that's defining the enemy really does it really clearly states we're not this. . We don't do this to you or all about this that contrast is really powerful marketing that contrast is really good for your brand. . In also drives everything your business. . So you know exactly who you are a lot of us we get lost when we do our marketing or email marketing or paid ads or even our copy on our website, , and we're not really sure who we are. . This clearly defines when you have an enemy, , you know what you're not, , and therefore the opposite who you are the other reason why this is so strong and it's so powerful. . Is that when people? ? Shop around they come to your website they'll learn okay, , this is your enemy. . These are the people that you are going against. . They might not even know that your competitor has some flaws and by visiting our website, , they start reconsidering go into the competitor they're like, , oh. . Wow. . I. . Didn't know that people say that about the competitors I didn't know that this is what I'm in for. . I didn't know that there are alternatives and because you're not trying to. . Be a me too product and saying, , Hey, , we do this too. . We do this to having a clear enemy and and really expressing that in the language of your website and your marketing really shows hey, , there's a better way to do things you don't have to go with the status quo. .

"So how did you find the commonality with this person. where it transitioned from just a work and coffee chats is to heaven? This Person Show House that I felt like so what helped us start to. The relationship started getting more personnel when we were having coffee check or having lunches and it was never enough time because she was talking to me. I'm still interested in her. And not even that. I was super interested in her but her experience. As an affluent you know middle aged white woman that had reached a little organization. I don't know anybody else like that right. So I was inter- I was interested in like. Tell me about this stratosphere on which you walk I don't know anybody from that world but I wasn't being deliberate about the honest with her because I wanted her ongoing advice about one of her to help. I needed a safe space for me to be totally honest about what I was feeling organization and I WANNA say I wasn't just saying any and everything. I was being honest about my feeling but being choice school with my words I was telling the truth but I was not telling the truth in the same way that I was telling the truth to. You are my other under girlfriends or whomever right and so often. I think when we want to be honest or you WANNA be candidate. We don't have the vernacular do fe and Palatable Way and you've got to build heavy leary. Yeah and that's what I've gotten good at is the right words but it took me a lot of trial in a lot of error. I mean a lot of error to figure out. The vernacular is every company will have its own vernacular pay attention to that and it really really just as about paying attention. Yeah for sure paying attention and sometimes when I knew that I needed to say something somebody I write it down I Um because when you write it down and read it you're you're very clearly like now I say that and in the practice writing it down where we we use different words like we're educated in your email or writing an essay or writing a letter you write differently than you see. If you write it down you will likely write it in a way. That is much more articulate or eloquent than if you were just bank ready down for me gave me. Words hurts to use when I was in the conversation so I needed to be honest please. Not that I was sitting no conversations and read a script but having written out my thought I would say hey I am I waiting relationship with the Organization for example. It helped me articulate my feeling but for me writing being does that you have to find the way that helps you do that until you can build. That will be Larry now. I am adept enough that I had built a vocabulary that I can do more lives than I do before were early on it. Took me actually writing it out. That's some good advice because I know a lot of times learn from me. I tend to lead with emotion and that has not served me well and so I've had to learn to temper my emotional response and reaction and sit down and kind of talk myself off legislators and think through an an actually used pen to paper about how I'm GonNa react or how I'm going to respond and it's taken me Allot of time to get there because I am extroverted. So I'm very quick to respond and say whatever and be flipping and so I have to really fight to temper that but something. I was trying to get you to say that we talked about that. I I thought was really key when you think about you know building these relationships with people. That don't look like you mentioned to me about you. You think through like what do I have in common with this human being. I want you to talk about your thought that process of commonalities so when I am bill seeking a new relationship right I look for common ground and in some organizations that could be we've worked on on you worked on a business that I now working on or we have you know worked on projects where we come from similar work background rounded. There's something there something. There is some threat of commonalities that we can find Because for a lot of those by a cold coffee chat you know you're coming organization and you're taught to kind of find people instead of lunch with them. You need a jumping off point springboard. Because because if you don't have that it's really difficult to even create a foundation for relationship to bill to be built on you're spending on trying to feel people out and it's not a good use of time for you and it's not an especially good uses for that leader and so when I am Building a relationship from scratch. I I'm not like a relationship with my boss where I was introduced to her. Bet I recognize that I just need to talk to somebody. I only I talk to people that I have something to talk about and in a big company. There's so many people that can help you dance and help your career and you know Oh people that you should can be connected to and all of that but you don't need everybody right. You just need a squad right you know your slot can be a three five seven people however however many but there should be something that connects you to each of them so that you go into that initial conversation you question prepare is about to get their perspective on because once again that relationship can only start to advance. Its that conversation they feel like you have potential who points on the board. They're not gonNA invest in you right. Hey I'm working on business.

"Now and in the corporate world especially organizations that are highly higher cool with very tight structure. It's easy to feel that pressure like the leader. The president and vice president is bigger like they walk in rarified air right and I don't believe that they do and I treat leader in a way that suggests that I don't think they walk in rarified air and those relationships have gotten stronger because of that human element that I am vulnerable with them and I also give them a space vulnerable and recognize is it. We're all trying to figure this thing out right But it is that humanity that I bring with me to work every day and it resonated with me earlier saying that you know sometimes when we walk in corporate environment especially in these milky white bases for some reason they do feel devoid of humanity. uh-huh no matter. The industry and there are some industries where that particularly surprising because the industry is supposed to be closer to the people that Thurs right but for whatever reason we all kind of walk around they're like robots and because I have done the work to know when I'm at my best. I'm I'm at my best. When I'm being a whole person to like the unadulterated version of myself Is Women as I am truly at at my best and can we point where I can be successful in. My job can put points on the board where I can do the work that is required then game myself advocates? Like I only do that when I am really being myself. And the irony is not a lot of people are doing a- and because a lot of people aren't doing that it's become a differentiator the relationships that I've built our because I kind of heard about the nobles hypocrisy at work like I call a spade bait. I am candid ultra compassionate. People don't want you to be a braces off apple off brand for me to be abrasive but I will say the real to whomever like literally member and leader especially those that super senior in organization value that because the more senior you get the list fringe you having a place facts. So people aren't just like walking around till you the real right like if you are a segment leader. Fear President even go and responsibilities. Start to expand you have less friends. In an organization there are less people around to be real And and all of my relationships I bring that little humanity. I bring genuine connection. I tell people about who I am for real. I talked about being raised by single. Mother talked about being raising the inner city. I talk about about how I want the organization to be different from a diversity standpoint I can also just as easily talk about how to transform our business right right and the ideas. I have forgetting growth in places that we maybe aren't thinking about where we are getting after aggressively enough and it's that balance like like so often a lot of us have a lot of passion point and we walk organization to look for more diverse talent or it'd be more focused on retaining our talent right a lot of I feel that we wanted to march around and hold leadership accountable and make them care but boy back to courtesy. If you aren't performing if you are adding differential value for the plane nobody is listening to you right. I just hit me all in reflection points and like ooh yeah. I made that mistake. Yeah because you get sela passionate about the DNR stuff and inside the honest truth is leaders. Don't care about a painful and they say they care care they give it lip service but no they are trying to keep their jobs and their job is predicated on one thing. Did you hit the number did. Did you report out earnings to the street that made the stock price. Go up like that's it and yeah I think we have more filming. Just unlock moment in a very short on my career. I mean I've only been there for years but I've had to us and one of them in terms of building relationships was When I reach a moment my career that I saw I saw the moment and it happened when I I was in a role that was very challenging? The business was hemorrhaging emerging. Why could that we thought it cannot get any word right? Um We were fresh off what reward and I had Big Job to do in a very short amount of time and I didn't have time be like I didn't have time for that. They'd have to navigate the corporate policy but listen halftime because we was so aggressive so rotten that environment. Because I wasn't worried about my perception right. I was just being me and doing work. But I was still focused on doing the work to deliver on the business. And when I saw that it was paying hang dividends for me and my career in terms of the advocates that I gain and also the impact that I was having on the business I reach this kind of moment where I I realized that I can do. We all can do this. No matter your organization if you're having a positive or negative experience Dan. I wholly accepted and embraced the reality that I am a highly educated black woman with a point of view that brings a a unique perspective especially in a large organization and that I would be valuable anywhere anywhere whether whether an organization shows to continue to see the value in the or not I was going to be okay and a lot of the You folks in the organization. I mentor. I witnessed a lot of them. Give all of their self worth all our value over to the company and you cannot do that right right. No matter how hard you may be struggling no matter how are the job may seem you still the Shit Shit like you kinda gotta remember that all the time and yes. There are skills you can gain from it organizations. There are things that you can learn that can help further develop in advance. You Well you have to reach a point where you understand that no matter what happens here I will be okay right and once I've the holy and totally embraced that it was no-holds-barred I worked in the building My contribution to the business flourished because I was no longer concerned with you know basically am I gonNa get fired or are they going to like me or not right. I'm it's Kinda like hey visit who I am. Take it or leave it great but that that attitude came after I was putting points on the board.

And even if it's not about what you die but even when if you know at the end of a career at the end of a chapter in your life when you retired or whatever you want people to have ah to say about you or what do you WanNa have meant to people. What are you want your presence to have meant to other and I woke now in the words and personal nature about being a wife and about being a mother From what professional nature of impact that I went in my work to have on culture and adding Heidi but I use that as my star and so even if you don't do the work through an MBA program Worried you've gone through your MBA program and you still need the word. I encourage any everyone to articulate what you want what you want out of this life sending bike what what what. You're really working for it because it can just be so enlightening and it can actually start as your North Star every day so on the days a win you know the corporate back pat and he gets really heavy. I have a lot of those days it gets heavy. I have to remind myself of what I'm actually really working towards then that is bigger than the debt that I'm in. It's bigger than my relationship with a manager to give time like it must be bigger than that and if you don't don't make it bigger than that you will get bogged down in the everyday bullshit. Man I I just wanted chooses talk but you guys take a break but what we're going to talk about next. Though is something you mentioned about how you figured it out culture currency your job now and then how you use that to drive your career. So we're going to talk about what exactly is culture culture currency or corporate currency. I was like what so. We'll talk about that after this quick break. Hey guys real quick WanNa let you know the thirty minute. Coaching calls are no longer free but they're not expensive at all so for thirty minutes. You Pay Forty Bucks and I will give you my off and I will really really try to keep it within thirty minutes. I'm only try real hard. You know like the talk. Why else would I do a podcast? Second run my mouth. No but seriously I love hoping you guys I love letting you know that you are not alone in these situations that so you aren't the first black woman to go through it and you definitely won't be the last but hopefully one day we will all be the last and we can really work to to change the environment that we have to work in in order to survive. I don't want us to just survive. I want us has to thrive and we can and we will so if you find yourself stuck in a work situation invest in yourself go to trill Krill. Mba Dot com slash coaching. And let me help you and I'm really good at what I do so little gift so if you need some in help. I'm here if you have a question you can always email ask at trill. NBA Dot Com. I'm always happy to answer emails so with that Sinn. Let's get back into show. Okay guys. We're back before the break we were getting bombs of nuggets from this rockstar friend of mine. I'm so happy to know her. She is anonymous so she can in keep it all the way through and keep her coins in her good job and keep being rockstar where she is but we're talking about about her story of how she has worked to set herself up the mind frame that she goes into corporate America with and I hope nope that you guys are really internalizing the nuggets. She's dropping because these are the things that you truly need to be successful. Ten percent of it is the actual work you do and the ninety percent is all this other stuff and right now in this segment. We're we're going to talk about this idea of currency in a company and how Rockstar did you figure this out and so for me. This is win the Minty becomes the mentor. Like totally. Like hippy. Me On game. Because the the only time I've ever heard of currency used in the context of you know my currency is X. in this field is with PhD's so with PhD's their currencies publications right like the driving force of their career. So so when you frame this up for me when we were prepping for this episode I was like yeah. I am stealing this. I will be coaching people on this. But first let's define that term in this context what does currency mean from a company or from a cultural standpoint. The currency in an organization is what matters. Most what get you recognize. We'll get you all the special assignment. And it is the additional value that the organization place is on you being a in a chair right like if you are just a button a chair doing job. They're going to get a certain amount of value out of you right That is how the organizations pianolas structure picture. That's how you worked out is determined. You know that's how they made Adnan costs right like a understand. Roughly the amount of value you're going to generate by simply being in a chair But their value above and beyond that. That is your juice. It's your exceleron right it. Is You know what matters I most is. What gets you recognize? What gets you the special assignment What influences that narrative? We talked about that we talked about earlier. It becomes part of your talk track and you have to figure out what it is and it can be different at every company Some companies have relationship currency. And it's all about who you know and your relationships you ill I'm companies like the one that I work in has a performance currency culture. uh-huh and I didn't. I didn't coin this phrase right. I learned it from the on knowing. Hardly hear the long Danny Manning Director Morgan Stanley really. And you know her but expect to win. I've heard her speak a couple of times that she talked about. You know understanding the currency at Morgan Stanley earlier early in her career. Um So she helped me articulate it but I have been observing and evaluating it pretty early on when I got into my organization. And I'll kind of walk you through. It is because it was I stumbled into it. It was on my part. It felt much. Art Manager was not an advocate. My director is not an advocate I so I been at the company for bow all over year and nobody cared about me. And I'm Kinda like you know you hear all these things about mentorship and sponsorship ship and people will take a vested interest in you and you know you want leader to kind of take you under their wing and show you the ropes and all of that and that just won't happen unless you are putting points on the board right. There are far too many junior employees in organization for a leader to take a vested.

"But because I know that about myself I had to get out in front of it because the last thing that I needed a highly respected manager in this organization in a Hollywood director in his organization to then go around telling people that I had it would have ended. Yeah it does and then the next reordered you would have been giving good package like. Thanks but no thanks and so by acknowledging that I knew what was happening a hobby showing up I was essentially acting a little bit embrace. I do not be afraid to ask for great and find the right language. I'm not saying that you know. Go into somebody off a work vomit. I love her them. you know about your struggles but find the language that will resonate with people in the organization organization. And if you don't know if you can't find the words run it by run your message by someone else someone else that you respect someone else that you trump even somebody that that may not work where you work but has been in the corporate game a little longer so they can help you and to save the right thing. But I learned from that that it's important to be vulnerable demonstrate self awareness but also to get ahead of your narrative and what I did for myself in return learn what I gave myself a time line to snap out of it. That's good. How long did you give yourself? I gave myself sixty days. Okay that's fair and then what was that check in like when you check back in with your manager honestly by the time to check back in with my manager I. It's not out of it so it is. I gave myself to see as they didn't take me the And so by the time I had the second conversation they they had already noticed a change. Okay what it did. Was it really set our relationship on really strong foundation and put on a really great path because all of our subsequent conversations were about my relationship with the organization. They're like oh how are you feeling. You know. How's the team going? And because I demonstrated a level of candor and vulnerability based started to trust my perspective. And Trust what I was saying and those two individuals woah calm strongest advocates in the organization. This whoa what did you learn. This is it just. You've been paying attention you've clearly you've pat mentors even before you went to business school so like how did you become this amazing Tapie Honestly I think it goes back to my journey to the goal and what I felt valued about the past and the roads business school was the amount of the thinking that you have to do about yourself and what you want I- courage anyone that is appliances or considering business wall to do that work in the application process application process. Should not feel like you were going through the motions in order for you to get the most out of it to get the most obvious cool. Oh you choose. You've got to be clear on what you want. Who you are All of those things I did that work wing into business school and as I was choosing the school that I wanted to go to. I set a very clear goal for what I wanted to get out of my MBA. Or GAM and I wanted to come now on the other side a better leader. I wanted to know my voice. I want it to be able to discern my voice from the voice of other. That's key I didn't want to be falling victim to you. Know it organization or school pushing and pulling me I wanted to come out very self assured and because I knew I wanted to come out very for sure it influenced how I chose an MBA program. I chose to go to a school where I felt so comfortable. I would tell people that when the first time I walked in the door. It felt like I was walking into my grandmother out. Wow but it was important for me to go to a school where I felt so comfortable because I only had two years is to become a better leader. I didn't have any time to waste getting comfortable. Two years. Go by so quickly. And if you are spending here first year adjusting adjusting and trying to find your place in trying to say the right things and trying to figure out what clubs to join and how to recruit an all the things than I a new that. If I'd done that I wasn't going to be able to come out at the end of my second year fully self insured and because I was crystal clear about what I wanted to get out of my MBA program. You know all of this step before that kind of ladder up to that right but what influence. They're impacted the school that. I chose the work that I wanted to put into application process and now I feel like I am. I am reaping the benefits of that work. Yes Oh my God this. This is so he And this is the work that did not do so. Let me show you the counterexample. So I did not do that. Work the only reason why I went to business. The school is because my best friend and my other line's sister. WHO's my other best friend? They both have went to law school and they graduated eduated from law school and they sent an email saying hey. Why don't we go to Costa Rica for the weekend? Now Mind did you.

"Right like. Here's the deal. It doesn't matter where you start only matters that you keep keep striving for the end right for where you're going so even though you got a part time. Mba It doesn't mean that you you can't get this six figure job says 'cause you can K- and now the other thing I want you to think about doing if you're looking to switch. Your career is a want you to try to get on cycle with your school. fulltime recruiting routing program schedule right and I was you. Just get on in there even if you've graduated go to their events if you're still living in the same city a European in the same city as the full time program or if you can travel like do whatever you need to do to show up okay and if if you are starting a part time program or you're considering a part time program because I came only my job. I need this money and I haven't planned in advance enough to leave my job to go full time. And I looked at the resources that will allow me to have a full fellowship the consortium or Forte. I haven't done the due diligence and our really WanNa you have to score high on his G. man or Gre. Or our WANNA do whatever you come up with for these part time programs. Look on knock Ya on. I'm trying to better yourself but at least do the most to make sure that you set yourself up for success. So if you're going to go into this part time program for him at least start the program and try to structure it with the same cadence of the full time program so if you start your part time program start in the fall. Start Your program in the fall work to finish your program within twenty two months like the full time program right and yes. It's going to be hard because you're black. Wanted to still work and go to school. I'll know why but okay again. I told Ya I was biased. So if you're going to do the part time program at least try to put into the full-time programs opportunities especially if you're trying to switch careers especially if you're trying to leave your job. Ns especially if you are trying to get this NBA so you can make more money like the saddest thing I see is somebody in a junior level role especially you young ambitious people owning only. y'All graduate from Undergrad and then two seconds later. Yeah I WANNA get y'all NBA. That's not how this works but okay because see somebody told you you get your MBA. You can make six figures. ooh I WANNA make six figures. Let me go get my. Mba was the least past of resistance to go do that. Oh I can get into this part time program and now you are you wondering 'cause you had no internship you don't know any companies coming coming. You don't see them doing work working your ass off. Mind you because in the fulltime programs half of your time is spit looking looking for a job in the part time program. All your time is bid on the academics and learning the skills the full time program. That's the other half so you missing half of the puzzle of getting your MBA in this part time programme now how to fix it get on the cadence of the full time program. Consider taking off your job for ten to twelve weeks and going and doing internship and you should be able to do do that. Because if you've got on the cadence of the fulltime program you should be in the loop of everything the full-time students are doing and you should be right. They're lacking step now. Is he gonNA be real hard. Because I'm more time. Hell Yeah. Why don't you do this? But what I am telling you is if your expectation is to make six figures when you get out of your MBA program. Do you got a lot of work to do. which is why fulltime programs fulltime? When you think about it so that half the time? We're working on getting a new job. That's you actually doing your work because you're still working and look guys I get it. Everybody situation is unique. I ain't trying to give you know no money to help you do this. So my criticism comes just from my general angst. It's not personal. You know I love you guys I I just want you to set yourself up for success. And even though I have ranted and raved about how much I hate part time programs you still got an MBA ACIS. Use It figure it out. Do not sit there and not get your coins. Okay you must be smart. You got into the program program. You must be smart. You graduated from the program while working. This means you are a beast. You just don't know what but you don't know that's what this whole time today has been about so as always if you need some help or advice vice about a specific situation.

It can career switch because this intern ship gives me tangible experience to go back the next fall as a second year and start networking in talking with companies about my summer experience. What I learned what? I'm good at how I can add value to their organizations blase blase an interview for full-time jobs right. So when you're in a part time program you're not in this cycle you don't do.

"And find out. Are you this terrible manager or non other thing that sucks about going to get your MBA is the actual application process. It's time consuming. There are these essays. These schools is a game. They expect to see and hear certain language certain Lingo in these applications in order to let you win an and you really have to ask a lot of questions and you really have to be open to doing something different in order to get into the school that you really want to get into who and you have to figure out. What type of class is this business school building? And how can I make it shown through my application that I would be a perfect fit for that class at the end of this. I'm going to go through the NBA. Game in in how you have to focus on your best possible outcome because I know that might not make what are you talking about. There's way they're building the class and DO I. I've been in the class. What do you mean after I get through the bad and the ugly? I'm going to break down be game of the NBA. But right now now I'm GONNA stick with the framework that I've started out with and finished talking about the bad so the application process the G. man the bad the other bad thing that's really bad is be debt accumulation even when you get a fellowship fellowship guests let unless you have abundance of savings to burn through to live off of or twenty two months and some change until you start working again in your most likely going to have to take out some loans to get through so you can eat and have somewhere to sleep. Those things are important so I got some student loans from Grad School. There they're manageable. They're not killing me but again I also had a full fellowship for tuition fees. Now let's say you don't have a fellowship or savings and you full-on take out the entire cost of your twenty two months of Mba va program. God bless you people and that's probably the real bad thing when you get no financial assistance sense and you don't have rich parents. You really have to be strategic about doing this because that could be upwards of of two hundred thousand dollars of debt that you're signing up for and you're not going to be a doctor so yeah and then the other thing that's bad about the NBA that they don't tell you about. Is that after you go a conventional paths for example. I'm I'm in marketing. Let's say I wanted to switch to finance which I don't know what planet that would have to happen on but let's just say I was like you know I'm really interested. The finance function in our want to create. PNL's for the organization. Yeah you're not really going to be able to do do that like I have yet to meet somebody who successfully done anything like that. I think I might have met somebody who switched from finance to marketing marketing and that was an serious undertaking. But I have yet to me. That was one person. It just doesn't really happen. It's kind of like once you're in a lane you're stuck and I don't like that. I just know that it's really hard to switch careers after you've finished school. So that's why you gotta do that due diligence upfront and spin that time to make sure that this is really what you want to get into into. Now let's talk about the Goo. Ugly there is a lot of bs that goes on behind the scenes of these MBA gay programs and you have to make sure that you are not getting caught up in the mess so your school choice. Choice and your rankings. Unfortunately they matter that I know a lot of people again are going to feel a certain kind of way because they went into schools that weren't necessarily ranked or they were more regional schools. Or maybe you even went to the university I see a Phoenix for your NBA. Now I'm GonNa tell you right now. Good luck to you. You can do anything in the world that you put your mind into with Your University of Phoenix NBA. You can but understand you're never gonNA get treated like a Harvard Mba. Hell I went to the Indiana and I'm never gonNA get treated like a harvard. Mba let's be real clear not saying that I'm going to be stopped in my journey. Just saying that I won't get to experience some of the perks and I'll probably have to work a little or a lot harder harder to prove myself because I don't have a harvard or Stanford. NBA So understand is hard to get into those schools. But once you're in you're in and that network and that name and that branding is so powerful and let's be brill. Like I'M GONNA keep tra- I've worked with some Harvard. NBA's I've worked with some people that went to mit me. D Oh Kerr said with me Mediocre yes ladies and Gentlemen 'cause you know why we're all human beings and we all have our strengths and and we all have our weaknesses and a lot of the corporate game is about who likes you and we talked about that in the likability at the sewed so so if you have this name brand NBA and you're quite likable. You could get away with actually not doing much of Shit etre job and everybody will love the lack of production that comes from you because you're a likeable Harvard Harvard. Mba now if you feel a certain kind of way about that go look at yourself in the mirror again and let it sink in and work on yourself Oh okay now the other ugly truth about NBA is that it is not heed. My words not an equalizer or US black women it does not put us on a level playing field whatsoever. It gives us another check box tax. That may open a couple of doors but in actuality it is not an equalizer. And let me give you an example. I used to work mark with a young lady who actually really liked. Just love this. This person cool is a fan and I'll never forget my the first couple months at work. This person was on a panel for new employees and she talked about how oh she didn't have an MBA and she was talking to the more junior associates in the company and that she worked her way up through the company. And you. You don't need to go back and get an MBA to be successful now. What she didn't tell you was that her father used to be a senior executive in the company funny and had retired as what she didn't tell you so it's all nice and Dandy to tell people you don't need this NBA NBA? You can be successful. Look at me but you got to put everything in context. What are the odds of? My father is going to be a senior senior executive at any company that I'm working at the two zero zero zero so understand that it within the company she has this built in network of senior executives who have respect for her father and she does great work. Don't get me wrong like she's a woman you still got to come in and bring the brass tacks right like she ain't mediocre at all. Aw but I think she did a disservice especially to the junior associates of color who were contemplating getting their MBA BA noble book you need your Mba. Because you'll daddy didn't work here okay. So let's be clear about it and that's the ugly of the NBA. We need it to check the box to get in the door. It's not something that we can go without in certain spaces as we can't just rise the ranks will get beat now. It'll become a reason to not promote us. Well she doesn't have her NBA whereas for homegirl. Nobody will ever ever hold her back because she doesn't have an MBA at least not organization. Now we'll say let her try to go outside that organization the see what happens. She has good experience. She might make it. Who knows now? Let's talk about this game because the other ugly part is is getting caught up in the NBA game in going the status quo route the path of least resistance. Oh all these companies are interviewing doing me for marketing. So I guess I need to go the marketing route based on my prior experience. Okay listen to me and listen to me well let me break this down for you before you go and get an MBA. You really need to really be secure in what it is thank you want to do post NBA. Because if you're not then a lot of opportunities are just going to come at you and you're going to start feeling this huge sense of foam. Oh fear of missing out and you're gonNA believe that you have to say yes to all the doors with no direction people are gonNA come to you companies that you would never be interested in in a million million years are gonNA come and do their song and dance and take you out to eat and fly you here and talk about how great it would be to work there. You'll be like oh my goodness I never thought about this option CIA. Don't get caught up in that. Here's the game. Now take some notes us because this is important in need understand the game and understand where you fit into it so that you can get your best possible outcome. So let's talk about the players. The first player you have is the school these schools.
