"This is the Crossover NBA Podcast. I'm Chris Mannix joined by my colleague Rohan Nadkarni and Rohan this is unfortunately going to be a James Harden centric podcast because the three teams we're going to talk about today, Houston, Philadelphia, the LA Clippers all have a connection to one James Harden and the only team that's struggling right now is the team that James Harden is on. But before I get to what we're going to talk about on this week's show, do you remember that takedown from a couple of days ago that the Dallas Mavericks broadcaster did on James Harden? A really well articulated takedown. Also felt personal. Also felt a little personal. I didn't really, honestly, I didn't feel that way. I didn't think it was personal. I thought it was pretty professional. I mean, it wasn't bombastic. It was all facts. Don't get me wrong. All facts. Just funny to come from a Mavericks broadcaster, but continue. Definitely. An unusual source on something like that, but it was factual and it viral it and was widely applauded for the substance of what it said. Our friend, Jimmy Traina, our colleague over at SI .com says that Bally Sports Southwest has taken down that video because yes, they've taken down the video because according to Jimmy Traina did not meet with the values of the Mavericks. What? What are we talking about? That was the furthest thing from controversial. It was certainly, you know, spicy. It was opinionated. Perhaps it was a take, but isn't that what you want from broadcasters? Like, don't you want them to have a take? I mean, how vanilla do you want a broadcaster to be? I mean, again, it was out of left field coming from a Dallas Mavericks broadcast. You expect something like that from like Stephen A. Smith on first tape first take or skip Bayless on undisputed. You don't expect that from an analyst on the Dallas Mavericks broadcast, but that's where it came from. And that's how it got into the universe. It got taken down wild, wild to me. So I had no clue. That's kind of an embarrassing look. I someone had to have complained. Perhaps it was the Clippers. Who knows? That is or maybe just Mark Cuban doesn't want that guy, you know, acting like he's representing the Mavericks. I don't know. But can like, can we just be adults about this? We all know that that's one person's opinion. No one is ascribing this take to the Dallas Mavericks. It was again, as we sat here, it was all true. Nothing he said was a lie. Nothing was exaggerated.

A highlight from Aim to be above your business
"In this short talk episode I speak to Jonathan Jay about his experience in buying and growing businesses over the past 25 years. Jonathan bought a total of 53 businesses over the course of six years with five being before the pandemic and 48 during the pandemic. In this conversation he shares the top five mistakes entrepreneurs make when buying a business and the importance of identifying game -changing acquisitions based on the financial numbers, knowing when to sell business at its peak and the value of not being emotionally attached to the business. I create clear thinking and decisive leaders who can amplify their influence. Contact me to find out how I can help you or your organisation. And today our guest is Jonathan Jay. How you doing Jonathan? I'm very good thank you Judith, thank you for having me on. No thanks for coming on board. Now tell me, what's your favourite thing ever? I was expecting this to be a question about buying a business. My favourite thing ever? Oh my goodness, that's such a broad... my daughter, there you go. Can't get better than that. No you cannot, I bet she's gorgeous when she smiles. Even when she's grumpy she's fairly gorgeous. Brilliant. Jonathan tell us a bit more about you. Well this coming year, 2024, is my 25th anniversary of doing buying, selling, owning, growing and all those sorts of things in business. I've actually been in business longer but my first business was sale in 1999, so coming up to the 25th anniversary and it feels like yesterday in some ways and it feels like a very long time in other ways and I'm going to take it a lot easier from next year onwards, spend a little bit more time doing things other than businessy things. Interesting, so when you buy these businesses do you onboard a management team or do you become the CEO for a while or what do you do? Well it's an all depends answer on the different situations. I'm not particularly interested in operations and I'm not very good at it either. I'm not really the people person that's required to do that sort of thing so I always prefer other people to do that. Okay it's always good to know so many CEOs, founders as well they sort of get trapped into running it when they're not the right person. Well yes that's right because at the beginning you do everything yourself don't you? You are the business in every way possible so it takes quite a mind shift change to say that's not going to be me and there aren't any rules about when it stops being you. Does it stop being you after 12 months or 24 months? There's no rule so it just ends up being you all the time because at the beginning you can't justify anyone else being involved. You can't afford anyone else usually but it is a trap so the work on your business rather than in your business, massive cliche now but when Michael Gerber wrote The E -Myth over 35 years ago I think, it was quite a revolutionary change in people's thinking and he encapsulated it so well with that phrase work on rather than in and now I say to people work above the business so you become the investor rather than the doer or just the owner. And how easy is it to do that? I've never heard of anyone talking about being above the business. How easy is it to get there? Well there are very few things in business that are easy because everything takes discipline, effort, hard work, dedication and all of those things but I think it's important because if you do get dragged into the day -to -day you become the bottleneck in your own business and the growth of your business is going to be throttled by your time and your energy and to have boundless energy in our 20s and 30s past the age of 50 maybe the energy level is not quite what it used to be and we look forward to an early night and a good night's sleep so therefore capturing the energy and enthusiasm of other people allows you to do far more than if it was completely dependent upon you. Okay that makes sense. So in the last three years you've bought 48 businesses so tell me about that journey. Yes it's more than that actually, 53. So yeah I did a buy and build in 2019 which is what's that like that was five years ago actually five years back that I've been thinking about for a year prior to that so it really goes back about six years and I bought five of these businesses before the pandemic, 48 during the pandemic and it was stressful at times. I've got to admit that it wasn't plain sailing, very few people I've ever met have done that. There's only one person I can think of who's done it that aggressively and I ran out of energy. I was helping my daughter with her spelling homework and she was reading through the words for her spelling test that coming that coming week and one of the words was unhappy and she looked at me and she said that's you. Wow. And I said oh okay okay I let it go and the next day I said why did you say that and I said what makes me unhappy and she said work and I thought I've just suddenly become a very poor role model and at one point I was hospitalized. I'm not trying to put people off buying a business, I'm trying to put people off buying 53 businesses in like it was actually two and a half years. The stress started to get to me so no amount of money or no obsession with business is worth your health, your relationships, your family and all of those things and I think that early on in our careers we put everything behind our business and our career and then I think again when you tip into maybe when you tip into your 40s then you tip into your 50s you realize that you've got to get your priorities right because you start saying life is too short way too many times you've only yourself repeating that again and again life is too short life is too short so I think it's getting that work -life balance again yeah that was a kind of a new phrase 20 years ago and now it's work -life balance this that and the other but it's but it is very important. So you risked your health doing what you did but why did you do that? No one had a choice to be fair it kind of crept it kind of crept up at me I wasn't intentionally doing that. I had these stomach pains that wouldn't go away and one particular night you know I just didn't sleep the entire night I was just such agony and I was googling appendicitis and that was actually on the other side so it wasn't appendicitis I thought I couldn't figure out what it what it was I always thought my stomach was kind of in the middle and it's not actually it's to the to the side so I figured it was my stomach so I went to the doctor which I don't you know not something I've ever done on a regular basis and the next day I was having a colonoscopy which is not my favorite medical procedure out of all the medical procedures there are available a colonoscopy is not my most favorite one and they couldn't find anything which was good in some ways but what what was causing these the the stomach pains and it was all stress related so that was when I decided I've got to make a bit of a life lifestyle choice here and however big the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow if I'm not here you know because I'm as long as possible and I can't risk um you know I can't risk my health sort of suffering because of something which is let's face it financially based so um so yeah yeah it's a very common trait though isn't it entrepreneurs pushing themselves far too far um because I suppose you just get used to it and then it makes then it becomes harder to let it go oh I mean I I I have been and to a certain degree even now addicted to my phone I mean it's like it's like I get uncomfortable if it's not in my hand or I can feel it in my pocket which is bizarre I mean I shouldn't be looking at my emails at the weekend should I I mean it's like what's happening at the weekend nothing's happening at the weekend so so why am I even looking um so so it's but but I but I also remember the very very first day back in I think it must have been the mid -2000s when someone showed me how I could actually get emails on my phone and it was like oh my goodness I don't have to sit at my desktop to get my I can actually get them on my phone and you think that um you know if you if you again if you go back 20 25 years where we didn't have Facebook and we didn't have social media we didn't have um phones of any description but we still managed okay actually this is going back 30 years we still managed okay and we managed with a fax machine and uh you never hear anyone saying they make more money now than they did back then because they've got phones and technology yeah it it it is meant to improve communication but I don't remember anyone ever saying communication was was bad it was just you worked with what you've got and you didn't expect an instant yeah people these days you send them a whatsapp message and you don't reply instantly it's like a it's it's it's considered to be rude um where you know no one ever got upset when you faxed them and you didn't fax back immediately had it changed for the better not necessarily yeah why did you buy all those businesses in such a short period of time and it was in opportunity um that uh it was an opportunity to grow a grow a a pretty sizable group the fourth largest in the sector um within a short space of time and the pandemic was good in some ways business -wise bad in other ways um and one of the ways it was good it was because there were we just went for it um what it was it was just opportunistic that's all what type of businesses are they are these were all uh child care oh wow okay that made do you do you still have those no well my my business partner took over when I I I decided like I said the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow was not was not as enticing as I thought it was going to be so she took over um uh and and she was the child care expert I I was just the guy with the idea so my contribution was I had the idea and I knew how to do the deals and get the deals done um apart from having a child I I don't really know anything about uh how to run a child care business it's all highly regulated and you know I'm not qualified to do that anyway okay that makes sense so how did you know which of those businesses were good businesses to buy next to other businesses that you didn't buy uh because I looked at 500 so I looked at 500 first and it was kind of like a one in ten um of the of the 500 uh despite that you know some of them were better than others because they're not all created equally um and and some had some inherent cultural issues uh some had reputational some issues had financial issues uh you never get a perfect business right every business something that isn't appealing to someone else um maybe as the owner you live with it but to a new owner they wouldn't think it was um a good thing uh so so yeah so so the the bottom line was having choice of looking at looking at 500 in quick succession so if somebody was sitting there and they were thinking I need to I want to buy a business yeah is there any key things other than the fact that obviously you know the financials if you take the financials out is there any key things that people should be looking at well it is actually the financials the largest part because you want a business that's that's making good money and if you're going to buy a business why would you buy a business making 50 000 a year when you can buy a business making 500 000 a year with the same level of effort um as actually is easier to buy the larger business and the smaller business the larger business is going to be a better business than the smaller business um so they're uh yeah so the financials actually are are absolutely critical uh it's got to have enough staff enough people because you always get some when you buy a business you always get some people you want something that if you've if you've got a business with five members of staff and two leave you've got yourself a big problem uh if you've got a business with 50 members of staff and five leave or six leave it you know you don't notice yeah sometimes they were surplus to requirements anyway uh you've got to have a business that's big enough to be able to afford some good people to run it because you don't want that if uh it if it if it's you and you just bought yourself a job uh and even though it might be a well -paid job yeah we've kind of created that bottleneck that we were talking about earlier yeah and how did what sort of weight do you put on things like the culture of the organization well the that's the hardest part so you know if you buy two businesses one has a nine to five you know you walk in at one minute to nine you leave at one minute to five and then you've got the other which is work hard play hard and you know we're on call we're available anytime we'll do what's required to grow this business you try and put those two groups of people together and they won't mix so that cultural match is is really difficult and getting the staff on side is really important and that you know we did it really well and we did really badly yeah so and everything in between and sometimes it's practice slightly outside of your control as well so um you know you you might have a seller who who is a reluctant seller and some for some reason doesn't want the buyer to be successful and definitely doesn't want the buyer to be more successful than they were doesn't want to show doesn't want to be shown up so they they spike it a little bit with the staff and it's amazing how many people sell a business and then keep in touch with the staff and want to know everything that's going on they can't let go oh i suppose after 20 years of ownership i get that i understand that but uh that that makes things a little bit tricky so the the people aspects are typically the hardest okay thank you that's really that's really a good point so what are you doing now then um i go on holiday a lot and i take my daughter to school i pick her up from school um i watch uh dancing uh uh shows uh gymnastics competitions the other night last night and uh and i i do that i i i fill my day um helping other people buy businesses and benefiting from my experience over the last 25 years so uh these are either business owners already who want to expand by buying another business or they're entrepreneurially minded people quite a few property investors recently are not getting a very good return on property um and uh and see an opportunity in business so it's a it's a combination of all of uh all those different types of people and i i have sort of groups of business owners and entrepreneurs who come together and i guide them through the business buying process so they don't make all the mistakes and there's a lot of mistakes you can make and i've made all of them so i can help people avoid them that sounds really good so is there a top five mistakes that entrepreneurs make when they're trying to buy a business yeah um this is in no particular order because it's off the top of my head but uh definitely uh letting uh emotion rule the decision so ahead so it you turn into a motivated buyer you want to buy it and therefore you've got to make the deal work even though the deal shouldn't work it actually would help you if the deal didn't work um buying a business that's too small so you end up um getting involved because you have to and the business can't afford anyone to replace the exited owner um another mistake is using your own money you should never use your own money when buying a business why would you do that um you know we can we can finance the the acquisition without you having to reach into your own pocket and that's why people can buy multi -million pound businesses without being a multi -millionaire uh you don't need the money to to do that you just need the knowledge and the three mistakes that people make uh mistake number four um is that uh let's see um they uh get the numbers wrong so they don't do sufficient due diligence to understand exactly how much profit the business makes uh what the business will continue to make under the new ownership you know they rush the deal they rush this part of it because it's not very exciting due diligence um it's a little bit like waiting for the house survey to come back when you've already want to buy the house and even if there's a hole in the roof and you're gonna buy that house so people ignore the due diligence or skimp on it that's four thing four mistakes that people make i've done a video i've done actually done a video series of 12 mistakes that people make uh and uh so let me think of one of those for number five for you um so i i think going into an acquisition without enough knowledge of what to do so feeling as though you can make it up as you go along you can pick up bits of information of the internet i mean goodness me if you spend enough time on the internet you'll you'll be so confused because people say different things what you need is a process you need a system to follow you need to say like this is the first thing i do this is the second thing to the third thing and every time i see someone follow the system they get the result if they don't follow the system they don't get the result and it becomes frustrating or it becomes expensive or they end up just not doing it so i think it's really important to follow that process follow that system so there you go there's five mistakes that people make they're really good ones actually and they're things that you don't automatically think of and that i like the idea about not being a motivated buyer because you make mistakes because you just need and like you say you just need to buy it when it's been going on for ages so it's just like i've put i've already invested x amount of time so now it's i might as well just do well it um yes or i've spent x amount of money and yeah i feel as though i i have an obligation to follow through uh which is just not some not a good idea uh at all you you are looking for a motivated seller you're looking for somebody who wants to sell because if they don't want to sell why you know what you're going to do you're going to try and persuade them to sell to you does that sound like it's ever going to be a good deal so you want someone who wants to sell and you'll find that the more they want to sell the better the deal for you so out of all though millions of businesses out there i think you're probably better off finding someone who really is motivated to sell rather than someone who doesn't want to yeah and i suppose the other thing to think about is if you've got another business or other businesses is how does this one adds to the portfolio or does it distract from the portfolio i guess another one isn't it exactly and and it becomes a distraction it becomes a bad distraction if it's small and it sucks up time but doesn't give you anything back uh it's a good distraction um if it's a game changer acquisition and that and that's what uh um that's always what we're that that is a game changer or just something that you want to do how do they how can they tell the difference uh it's usually down to the numbers right okay to give an example a father and son duo who just bought their first business recently with my help um eight million of revenue 1 .1 million of pre -tax profit that's a game changer deal where you know you buy a business 20 that makes 000 pounds a year well that's never going to set the world alight right it's just like why put the effort in you might as well go and buy the bigger the bigger business okay and do you have any thoughts about knowing when to sell when someone should be thinking about it's time to sell yeah when things are going well but no one wants to sell when things are going well because i say well why would i sell things are going well now that's when you get the um most value and things don't go well forever no business goes up and up and up and up and up and up and up every business you know it goes up and down it's like a roller coaster so you need to know when you're going getting up to the top of the the peak and when you're going up to the top of the peak that's when you sell when you reach the top the only way is down and that's when you get the worst value and that's when you become seriously motivated to sell you should be motivated to sell because the business is doing well not motivated to sell because the business is doing badly. That makes a lot of sense and I guess you need to not be emotionally attached to the business because that's when it's difficult to sell. You get the best value if you're not emotionally attached. If you are emotionally attached your value goes down every single time. This is really useful. Thank you so much for that. Before we finish is there anything Jonathan you want to add or leave with the audience? Can I give a plug for my YouTube channel? Yeah go ahead and do it. If you type my name Jonathan J J A Y into YouTube I've got over 200 videos on buying a business and all interviews with my clients who've done it, me doing presentations to groups of people, all different types of videos and there's some free training videos there as well. If anyone's interested in doing this check out the Jonathan J YouTube channel. Brilliant and I think that will help as you said it's always good to have a bit of a template a bit of a process and an idea of what to expect rather than getting super excited and go I've got some money I can do something. Yeah and keep your money in your pocket don't use your own money when buying the business. Brilliant thank you so much for coming on the show. My pleasure thank you Judith.

"mavericks" Discussed on The Maverick Paradox Podcast
"So talking about what's next, now I you know I've been watching the Institute of Leadership and Management for a long time and then you had that huge brand change to Institute of Leadership and I thought, I had two reactions to that, first I thought it's so good to have someone concentrating just on leadership and then on the other hand I thought what does that mean for managers, so could you tell us why did you decide to go to the Institute of Leadership, why did you drop the management? As with almost everything else in the world, there are two reasons for this, one prosaic and one sort of cosmic, although cosmic is probably too large a word for it really and the prosaic one, I think it was Confucius who said first enlightenment then the laundry, the cosmic and prosaic for everything. The prosaic one is that actually there was a continuing brand confusion between the Institute of Leadership and Management and ILM. ILM is a qualifications company if you like a business, they produce qualifications and the Institute actually was a part of the same organization as ILM and separated about six or seven years ago and because we were still Institute of Leadership and Management and they still had the brand ILM, people still thought that we were the same thing, so we thought well we have to try and move away from that a little bit and Institute of Leadership, IOL was a sort of a technical shift if you like, just a practical and pragmatic shift just to try and diffuse some of that brand confusion that remains and it will take some time for that to dissipate but it's part of the process. The slightly more, I suppose cosmic is a bit too big a word really, the other reason is there is a difference between leadership and management and I hope that all of us who do one or other or both would agree that there was a difference and coincidentally there was a tremendous article in The Economist this week about that very difference between leadership and management and I was looking at it and I thought you know this is quite good actually, it gives me the rationale for what we've done which is quite helpful because it talks about management being a manager's value order and you know the cliche is like you know we manage processes, we lead people and things like this. Managers value order and leaders are tolerant of chaos and I thought that's quite an interesting mindset differential there that we should be aware of and consequently leadership and I'll quote from this article is about the embrace of change and inspiring people to brave the unknown and I thought you know actually that is how the world is at the moment continual change if not continuous change and the unknown is forever what faces us in the future so leadership and the qualities of leadership to cope with you know volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity those qualities are ones which I think are needed not needed more in the world but it's the area of organizational world where we can make the most difference because we want to focus on the capability of people to cope with a VUCA world rather than the process elements and I do not belittle management when I say this because process elements are vital to an organization and actually I see management leadership as two sides of the same coin, one cannot exist without the other but I think you know for us leadership is also a term that now has more what's the marketing salience that's the marketing word I never really understood what salience meant to be quite honest but it's a word that people that resonates with people now and I have to say this not least because we see so many representative examples of poor leadership everywhere you know political, economic, social, business, everything so yeah leadership is something that we wanted to focus on as this is a potential solution or part of the solution to what we see as the problematic future.You know what I love all of that and when he was talking my brain was going I think maverick leaders so that's the world's independent actually seek to insert chaos into management and I thought I just thought just came up and the way I say that is because maverick leaders believe everybody's leaders you know everyone's leading the first leader is first thing you lead is yourself right so it's all about making sure everyone can lead and I think that's what maverick leaders do they're trying to empower leadership and to do that they will shake up the management processes to ensure you make them more leadership in how you do it. Absolutely and in actual fact this is the process of creating change you know what is it they say if you want to on a river in a canoe actually you need to paddle faster than the current in order to be able to steer because otherwise the current will just take you where you want so we need to control the direction in which it takes us or in which we take it if you like so yeah seeking to insert chaos into management I really like that as a as a phrase and it certainly describes everything that I've done in my career up to now. I did recognise Kin there I thought there's my man. Yeah definitely and funny enough actually somebody said to me once because I've had like dozens of jobs and stuff like this somebody said to me once you're sort of a born consultant aren't you John I said in a way yes because I almost always take a job because there's something that needs to be fixed it's not just you know somebody's leaving there they want somebody to just replace them something needs to be fixed there's a problem so I will generally speaking fix the problem to whatever degree I can and then they want continuity they want it to stop being changed and just carry on actually I can't do that I can't do continuity I don't do safe pair of hands what I do is is change continually so I think that your your phraseology there is exactly what I tend to do. Yeah you know what I'm going to I'm going to disagree with you just slightly. Good good good this is what makes a market.

"Know now. You are listening to 103 .5 FM at DOP .com. Sports at 25 and 55 powered by Maximus. Moving forward. Maryland was a big favorite and it showed in a 103 76 victory over Julian Reese and Jameer Young each scored a season -high 22 points with Reese adding 12 rebounds on a night when the Terps shot a hot 58 % from the floor coach Kevin Willard. The 17 assists six turnovers I think we're trending in right the direction that way. You know if you look at two of our losses early the turnovers killed us in both games. So I think these guys understanding taking taking care of the basketball and getting a shot up every time and not giving the other team easy buckets and making guys work. Meanwhile Howard was a double -digit underdog against undefeated Cincinnati and fell short of the upset bid in overtime 86 -81 suffering their first home loss of the season.

The news comes the day after Cuban announced plans to leave his longtime TV show Shark Tank. Rob Woodfork, WTOP Sports. When you struggle with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis you get used to not feeling a hundred percent. I thought that was how it had to be until I discovered the Crohn's and colitis foundation. They told me about new medications that weren't around back when I was diagnosed. They helped me find a specialist who gave me a new treatment plan. I'm feeling better than I ever thought I could.

"mavericks" Discussed on The Maverick Paradox Podcast
"In today's conversation I speak to John Mark Williams about how mavericks introduce chaos as empowerment. We also look at why the Institute of Leadership and Management changed to the Institute of Leadership and what that did to the culture. John and I also look at the importance of leadership in embracing change and inspiring others and in this conversation we discuss the importance of being mindful of the impact of your words, setting clear expectations and promote effective collaboration. We also look at the value of playing games and taking on different perspectives to encourage critical thinking and non-threatening discussions. I create clear thinking and decisive leaders who can amplify their influence. Contact me to find out how I can help you or your organisation. And today our guest is John Mark Williams. How are you doing John? I'm doing very well thank you very much indeed Judith, I'm delighted to be here, absolutely delighted. I am so delighted to have you as well but before we even kick off I am interested, is there any sports that you particularly enjoy doing? Two I suppose really, one is running at which I am nowhere near as good as I used to be, time moves on and stuff like that and the other one actually is riding around the forest on my bike, my mountain bike. I really enjoy that quite a lot as well so those are the two things that I do most of. That's interesting, do you like that because you're out in nature and you like it? Partly yes, absolutely yeah and especially because I go into Thetford Forest which is a very large sort of man-made forest in eastern England and there are so many trails to follow and so many paths to follow and it's reasonably flat and at my stage of life it's actually quite nice not to have to go up on a mountain on a mountain bike. I get you, I get you. All right then, so John tell us a little bit more about you outside your running. Yeah I suppose I'm one of these people who sort of fell into the things that I do now. I spent quite a lot of my early career doing a variety of things, things like stockbroking and being an electrician's mate and being a glazier and working on a building site and then I did a stint as a civil servant and all sorts of things. However there are probably two themes that have run since I stopped working on building sites, probably two themes that have run through my career. One of them is international business and I've been very privileged to do quite a lot of business internationally including living overseas and having my own company overseas in Hong Kong and because I've discovered that I suppose that an awful lot of us and myself, I'm no exception to this, actually don't get much leadership development before we end up getting the burden of leadership to carry and it was one of the things that I noticed was that actually you know it's not that difficult to help people to become better leaders if we can give them opportunities, help them make contacts, help them discover role models, stuff like that. So as my career developed from looking for stuff to do internationally I began to do more and more around supporting people into leadership roles and in the end of course that's where I am now running the Institute of Leadership which is sort of a job that's been waiting for me for 25, 30 years or something like that I think. That's such a lovely thing to say, do you see it as kind of the pinnacle of your career like everything you did led up to this point? Yeah absolutely and there comes a time I think in everybody's career I suspect when there's not much point in trying either to get further up the ladder or to do more of something. Actually we just discovered that I think that I'm in a position where I can probably add optimum value for the people that I engage with, you know connecting them with all sorts of information opportunities, content, stuff like that and actually if I'm adding optimum value I probably ought to just carry on adding optimum value. So I'm sort of yeah I think this is probably the best role I've had in my career both in terms of how much I enjoy it and how much value I'm able to add for other people. Wow you know what one of my aims is to have more people actually say that, more people that go to work out and say I love my job, I love what I do. Yeah absolutely and in actual fact it's funny isn't it because we get so many messages through life that say you need to do more, you need to do better, you need to earn more, you need to live in a big house, you need to somehow need always to do more and more and more instead of actually let's just do enough, enough to make us reasonably happy, enough to make other people reasonably happy with what we do and actually I suppose for me the outcome of our efforts during life ought to be, I don't know whether we call it fulfilment or happiness or whatever it is but that point we reach where actually I don't really need to do different stuff, I just want to get better at doing what I'm doing now. Oh now you're talking about mastery, now you're talking about comfort, isn't that? Absolutely and it's a very zen concept in a lot of people's minds I think really because it sort of precludes this need to acquire more to you know to get more money, get a bigger house, get a fancier job and stuff like this, it actually is all about as you quite rightly, I mean it's the perfect word isn't it mastery, it's about how well we do the things that we do and getting contentment from that mastery. Yeah I totally find that when I'm working with people I hope to instil that pursuit of mastery, knowing that you can never master it and being able to hold that dichotomy isn't it, I'm always wanting to become a master in this whilst recognising I never will be. Absolutely and that's back to that sort of zen thing isn't it really because almost the essence of mastery is the understanding that it's a never-ending journey and actually there's a contentment in that. Yeah I was about to say that, I quite like the fact that I'll never, I would hate it if I knew absolutely everything about leadership and there was nothing more to learn, I mean I'd be so upset. Absolutely, imagine getting to the point in your life you say well I've done it all now, well there's nothing else for me, there's no worse, it's like what was it Alexander who was 33 or something like that, I would hate to get to the stage where I thought well there's nothing else we're doing now.

The Virginia Mercury reports that a nearly 3 .4 percent increase in enrollment over the past year can be attributed to fast forward. The state launched the short -term career credential training back in 2016 and while that program's enrollment is up by over 21 percent, total enrollment at the state's community colleges is still down 16 percent from 2018.

We built up over time with progressively larger rockets and this was our biggest one yet. Benjamin Miller, an Oakton high school senior, leads the school's rocketry team. He says they were recently able to launch a rocket up more than 34 ,000 feet, which is above most commercial and it's believed to be the highest altitude ever achieved by high school students. The rocket, which the students built entirely by themselves, was 8 feet tall and included a 12 pound motor. We were ecstatic that we had reached our goal. It was quite an experience.

A highlight from The Best Gaming Podcast #422 Bungie's Destiny in Question, Legion Go thoughts, Avatar thoughts, AW 2
"And there we go. Sup everybody. This is Keric with ACG and I'm here with Abzi for the best gaming podcast number 422. We smoked 420 so quick. Did we? Yeah. 420 was the event. No. 420 was the event. I completely forgot. Yeah. Yeah. And you didn't even put the number on that stream. Did you do on purpose? I think I went back last night and and put the number on there. I I've been looking at like trying to verify what people want to watch like what works for people because some of our podcasts get insane retention. We've got 85 % retention on a four hour podcast. It's awesome. Yeah, that's amazing. But then another will have like 55 or 60 which is more high but normal and I'm like, what do I need to do? So I've been looking at naming and stuff like that. Yeah, for sure. It's it's definitely it's definitely something I screw up. I'm not good at it. Like it's called the best gaming podcast because I'm not good at this shit behind the scenes. I'm like just dude. I'm not good. I like this is the one place where I have issues up everybody in chat. We're jereo Robert chicken wings flexing darge night. What's up, man? We had a long discussion with darge last night Eric maverick duck. I'm gonna have to read some of the discord discussion we had last night. We had a huge favorite favorite stuff, right? It was like favorite take an IP and give it to a dev and then that one is a cool question. Yeah, I like that question. It was awesome. I mean it went for like four solid hours. I went for a run with kiddies came home and they were still in there. Yeah, and I was like that's that's that's a gem. That's always cool. What about you? What like over the week? Let's see. So last we did was Friday. So over the weekend in the last couple days, anything amazing? Um, no, I've been addicted to all week to I went and watched a movie at the theater. The one with Leonardo DiCaprio and yeah, yeah. Is it good? Um, it's so paid. It's paced very weirdly like it's it's it's I liked it kind of I like the performances. I think what's his name, the one dude, the older guy, the Robert De Niro did a fantastic job. I've never seen him like, like be that way. He was like a, you know, southern kind of dude, you know, I mean, that was really cool to see. I like the story about the pacing was just it just killed it for me a little bit because they went like this and then it would go like that. You know, I'd just be all over the place. So, you know, I couldn't I couldn't, you know. Yeah. So I didn't love it. But it was it was cool. So it was more along the lines of like minutes. What the movies, three hours and 30 minutes long. Yeah, dude. Oh, my God. Dude, that's that's like birds for a lot of babies. That's a long movie. That's a long, very long. Yeah. How they prop up De Niro to be awake for three hours and 30 minutes. I have no idea. Dude, I love it. It's crazy. It's crazy. Yeah. Was DiCaprio going against type kind of thing where he does in some movies where he's like, I'm going to play Blood Diamond. He was like the South African Blood Diamond, black black market trader, phenomenal movie in this one. Did he play against type? Like, was he a nerd or was he or was he just Leonardo? He was a Leonardo. No, no, no. It wasn't Leonardo. He was very odd. Yeah. It was like different. He looked uglier, like purposefully uglier kind of. Oh, wow. More southern, more like. Yeah. He was he was he was different. He wasn't being like Leonardo or anything. It's a weird role, but he nailed it for sure.
A highlight from 21st Century Icons in business
"In this episode I speak to Sally Percy about what it takes to become a business icon. We talk about her book 21st Century Business Icons and the importance of businesses working for the greater good and the challenges women face in being seen as extreme mavericks in leadership roles. This is a wide ranging conversation about the leaders who are changing our world. I create clear thinking and decisive leaders who can amplify their influence. Contact me to find out how I can help you or your organisation. And today our guest is Sally Percy. How are you doing Sally? I'm great thank you. How are you? I'm doing really well thanks. And I was wondering what types of things make you sing in the shower? Oh, sing in the shower. Do you know I don't know if I do a lot of singing in the shower. I do a lot of thinking in the shower. Like trying to solve creative problems. Like maybe think of a headline for an article in my tube or something like that. But I don't really do a lot of singing in the shower. Do you do a lot of singing in the shower then? I'm more kind of like humming in the bath. It's probably nearing me. What makes you hum in the bath then? You know what I think it's definitely mood driven. Do you know what I mean? So it's sometimes kind of something with a really kind of like heavy beat that I would be like kind of like dancing to myself. And other times it'd be more kind of contemplative, you know, when you just, as you said, you just like your brain is just open to input. You can tell you're a journo. Look how you turn that round on me, sneaky woman. You're going to have to watch me with this one. You know, you are going to have to watch me. I like that. No, I do like that. That's really cool. So I've called you a journo. Tell us more about you. So I am a now a business journalist, and I've been a journalist for about 20 years now. I did a few things before I became a journalist. And when I first became a journalist, I was actually living in New Zealand at the time. That's my boyfriend, now husband. He's from New Zealand. And I went out there and I got, he was from a rural area, he's from a farming family. And I got a job as a rural reporter on the local newspaper, which was quite funny because I was a vegetarian from London. I didn't know anything about farming, really. It's quite eye opening. I do now know a lot more about farming and I'm probably a bit rusty on it, so don't test me too much. And then I stayed out there for a couple of years and I found New Zealand a bit quiet. So we came back to the UK and that's when I really started to become a business journalist. And I originally joined Accountancy magazine and became editor of Accountancy magazine. And then after that, I decided I sort of wanted to broaden myself out of it and not be too focused on accounting and finance. And so over the years since then, I've worked freelance and I really moved myself much more into the general business space. And I particularly like doing leadership and management. I'm currently editor of Edge, the magazine of the Institute of Leadership. And recently I have and I've written two books. One was called Reach the Top in Finance. I wrote that in 2017. And then my most recent book is 21st Century Business Icons and that kind of profiles some of the world's best known business leaders. And I really enjoyed doing that because I learned a lot from them and found out a lot about them.
A highlight from opBNB Goes Live On Mainnet
"Welcome to your Ethereum news roundup. Here's your latest for Wednesday September 13th, 2023. Developers introduce an EIP for a new BLOB base fee opcode, DAP Radar releases a zk -sync ecosystem portal, the SEC sues the Stoner Cats NFT project, and the Lazarus Group siphons over 54 million dollars from CoinX. All this and more starts right now. KCG ceremony coordinator Carl Beek introduced EIP 7516, a proposal for the addition of a new Ethereum opcode called BLOB base fee. The opcode is similar to the existing base fee opcode and can be used to retrieve the BLOB base fee value of the current block. The opcode would allow smart contracts to access the BLOB base fee, which can be used to calculate BLOB data usage costs and facilitate the implementation of BLOB gas futures for smoothing out BLOB data costs. The proposal is currently open for feedback on the Ethereum Magicians Forum. zk -sync released a new ecosystem portal managed by DAP Radar. The portal ranks DAPs by key metrics including volume, total value locked, and unique active wallets. It also sorts DAPs by categories including DeFi, NFTs, games, bridges, and DAOs. SyncSwap, MEW, and Maverick Protocol are currently the top 3 DAPs on the network by total value locked. DAP Radar is the first external ecosystem portal for zk -sync. Developers can now apply to feature their zk -sync DAPs on DAP Radar for increased visibility. zk -sync era is an EVM compatible zk rollup. The rollup is currently the third largest layer 2 network with over $400 million in total value locked. The U .S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed charges against the Stoner Cats NFT project for selling unregistered securities in the form of NFTs. The project had raised $8 million from its 10K NFT collection which sold out within 35 minutes. The SEC cited the project's marketing campaign which included holder benefits and promotion from celebrities like Ashton Kutcher. The Stoner Cats NFT project settled the charges with the SEC by paying a $1 million penalty and agreeing to a cease and desist order, which included the burning of all NFTs in its possession. SEC Commissioner Hester Pierce later issued a statement arguing that applying the Howey test to NFTs lacks clear boundaries and could stifle creativity among artists and creators. According to security researcher Taylor Vanno, the North Korean state -sponsored hacking group known as the Lazarus Group has siphoned over $270 million worth of assets in the last 102 days. Yesterday, the hacking group exploited $54 million from the CoinX exchange. Earlier this month, the group exploited Stake .com for $41 million. Vanno noted that while the stolen funds can be publicly traced to Lazarus Group, only a fraction gets confiscated through the freezing of assets. And lastly, OPBNB, a Layer 2 network built on the OP stack, is now live on Mainnet. An OPBNB network testnet was first released in June. Over 435 ,000 unique addresses have since interacted with OPBNB on testnet, processing over 35 million transactions. The network features a one -second block time and ultra -low gas fees. Users can now add the OPBNB Mainnet RPC to their wallet using Chain ID 204 and Bridge to the network using ZKBridge. This has been a roundup of today's top news stories in Ethereum.

The rollup is currently the third largest layer 2 network with over $400 million in total value locked. The U .S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed charges against the Stoner Cats NFT project for selling unregistered securities in the form of NFTs. The project had raised $8 million from its 10K NFT collection which sold out within 35 minutes. The SEC cited the project's marketing campaign which included holder benefits and promotion from celebrities like Ashton Kutcher. The Stoner Cats NFT project settled the charges with the SEC by paying a $1 million penalty and agreeing to a cease and desist order, which included the burning of all NFTs in its possession. SEC Commissioner Hester Pierce later issued a statement arguing that applying the Howey test to NFTs lacks clear boundaries and could stifle creativity among artists and creators. According to security researcher Taylor Vanno, the North Korean state -sponsored hacking group known as the Lazarus Group has siphoned over $270 million worth of assets in the last 102 days. Yesterday, the hacking group exploited $54 million from the CoinX exchange. Earlier this month, the group exploited Stake .com for $41 million. Vanno noted that while the stolen funds can be publicly traced to Lazarus Group, only a fraction gets confiscated through the freezing of assets.

A highlight from Authenticity and attachment
"In this episode I speak to Sangeetha Parthasarathy about the challenges faced by mavericks in fitting into the corporate world and how to navigate their uniqueness while still maintaining authenticity and attachment. We look at the dynamics of power and the ambivalence that mavericks may feel towards holding power within an organisation. Sangeetha shares her thoughts about the blurred lines between therapy and coaching and I express my concern about untrained coaching using therapeutic techniques and we look at how certain things work differently for neurodiverse individuals particularly those with autism emphasising the importance of being aware of functional freezing. This is an interesting conversation that looks at mavericks, belonging and othering on the nervous system and on the ability to lead. I create clear thinking and decisive leaders who can amplify their influence. Contact me to find out how I can help you or your organisation. And today our guest is Sangeetha Parthasarathy. How are you today? I'm doing great Judith and thank you so much for having me. No, you're welcome. Any time I talk about mavericks I'm going to be super excited. But before I can do that, tell me what piques your curiosity. The word maverick itself and paradox, like two of the things that I think define my whole life. And I also talk about paradoxes in my work and I have had the lived experience of being a maverick in pretty much any room that I've been in. You know, the round peg and square hole kind of thing. I think I sort of had that my whole life and as I've navigated through the world, therefore I have a natural inclination to find and connect with other mavericks. So that's one. And then the paradox, which is, you know, how do you kind of build and navigate career, family, et cetera, with this uniqueness, you know, what, you know, many aspects of uniqueness about yourself. Brilliant. What can I say? There's so much there to unpack. So let's start with where you ended. How does, so I define mavericks as willfully independent people. So how do mavericks fit into the corporate world in its entirety, bearing in mind, you know, the family interests, the curiosity levels, the conformity that's required in corporates. How do you put all that together? Wow. Okay. That's a big question. Oh my God. Yeah. I'm just going to, you know, yes. I feel, okay, so I'll start with a little bit about where I am and kind of what I do. I lived the corporate life for a really long time. And before that, I went to universities and college, you know, it's a very sort of, you do this, then you do this. And there was a point after which, you know, and now I don't, I'm corporate adjacent, if that makes sense. You know, so I work, I'm a nervous system coach and I work with people, not just in corporate, in various walks of life, some of whom tend to be corporate, you know, leaders, and I work and help support the nervous system. So I have a front seat view into this question, you know, like, how do you really navigate corporate life while being a Maverick? Because I see it from this vantage point of having supported nervous systems that are going through this journey. I think when we think about Mavericks, and this is again, there is a preferred level of uniqueness. And then there is, you know, a kind of uniqueness, or a way of being a Maverick that really challenges the status quo, right? So, you know, I want to, you know, one way to look at it is, when you're in the corporate world, I think there is a percentage where of us who might, for whom, it might be really hard to play within the boundaries, right? And then the middle piece, which is that we've found a way to coexist within rules and still not lose ourselves, right? But then there are the, and then the other piece, which is like the top, I don't know, 5 % or whatever, for whom there is a continuous challenge of status quo who actually go on to disrupt industries and, you know, I think, I don't know, I think of it as three buckets. I don't know if that makes sense. And then when you look at it from a nervous system standpoint, this is what's fascinating. And this gave me a new lens with which to understand my own Maverick nature, right? Which is that when you go into neuroscience, there are two things that are important for us to exist in relationship with others, you know, whether it's corporate or whether it's personal life or whether it's community, right? For an individual to feel fulfilled and safe and engaged and to feel like they belong, I think there's two things, right? One is authenticity, where this is me and I'm going to show up as me. And then the second need, and both of these are biological needs, right? So one of my nervous system based needs is attachment. Therefore, you know, do I feel accepted? Do I feel bonded to my peer group or, you know, this community or, you know, work, why being myself? And then we go through our whole life finding out that balance between authenticity and attachment. And then when one sort of challenges the other in a big way, then, you know, we sort of review this idea of how do I belong with it? How do I engage with it in a sense where I still feel like I belong versus, you know, not losing the authenticity or the core of what I bring? Does that make sense? Yeah, it does.
A highlight from Out Of The Basement Podcast Episode 119
"Welcome to the Out of the Basement Podcast, a show where a group of friends get together and talk about a variety of geeky topics. Find out what shows we've been watching, find out what movies we've seen, find out what games we're playing. Come along and join us. We hope you enjoy the show. Right, hello and welcome to another episode of the Out of the Basement Podcast. My name is always Devan Tarak and today we've got a lot of people joining us. We've got Patrick Leeson. Out in the PEI, but only for two more weeks. Patrick Ramsahoy. Hey guys. Paul Sanders. Hello. And joining us from the CTC and Xtreme Tabletop Gaming, it's Joe Miedema. Hey everybody. All right, so let's just jump right into it. What have you all been up to? We're going to do this in the new format that we came up with as of our anniversary episode back in November, and we're going to start with movies. Who wants to talk about movies? Paul, how about you? What have you been watching? Nothing. Cool. Okay, moving on. Patrick. That was fast. Easy peasy. It's true. There's really nothing that's caught my eye, nothing that's come out that I haven't that I seem to be interested in. None of the Marvel stuff has caught my eye at all. I kind of seem to have really drifted away from that stuff. I don't know why, but... Well, maybe it's just everything kind of ended with Endgame, right? So it seemed like a nice place to stop and then you haven't picked up with the new stuff they're coming out with. I mean, I have watched some of the new stuff, but it just, it doesn't feel as good as that stuff did before. And I'm not sure why, like it, I don't know. I just feel everything feels darker and I don't, I'm not, I'm not a fan of it. I just don't like it as much. So... That's just me. Pat, movies, go. All right. I saw Medieval, which is based on in the Hungary area, the hero of those times and it was actually pretty good. It was, it was nice and brutal medieval sort of one, like lots of gore and also good medieval, you know, healing. Oh, you've got to cut your eye here. Let's grab some maggots and throw them in there. So they'll eat the dead flesh and you'll be able to, you know, survive. I recommend it if anyone who likes that sort of, you know, Pendragon medieval sort of idea, it's a nice one. And again, not that much because whole thing going on with mom and all that. Oh, sorry. One on one, Hell Dogs in the House of Bamboo, which is a Asian one, Japanese. It's actually pretty good. Yakuza sort of idea, not too much Hong Kong action, more just brutal viciousness. That's it for movie. That's it for movie. I recommend if you, anyone who likes sort of, you know, Asian flavor, Yakuza sort of idea triads, it's a good one to pick up. Okay. Joe, how about you? Have you been watching any movies? No, I have not. The last movie I watched was Top Gun Maverick and then I watched it because it came out on like digital HBO or whatever. So I kind of watched that and no, we're in shows, not movies at this point. Okay. Pat? Yeah, we had initially been planning to see Ant -Man and the Wasp on to Mania yesterday, but the lackluster reviews from friends got us thinking, we'll just wait until it shows up on Disney Plus next month or something. Other than that, yeah, I haven't really seen any movies in the theaters or on TV for that matter. Oh, sorry. We did watch the Jennifer Lopez movie, Shotgun Wedding. Wouldn't really recommend it all that much. I was going to say why? Yeah. Jen ended up watching it on her own and she said, Dev, it's a good thing you didn't watch this. You would not have liked this movie. Yeah. It seems like all movies these days have just gone right to the shitter. I haven't seen any winners or heard of any winners or anything. From Norseman. Oh, I didn't talk about that North because it wasn't there last month, but watch the Northman. Hamlet done great. Northman was decent. Yeah. I saw that when it was first in theaters many, many moons ago. I love people like, oh, it's a whole bunch of action. It's like, not really. There's, there's not that much action scenes in the movie. I mean, I've heard, okay, this is completely off topic, but, um, well, no, it's not off topic. It is a new movie. I haven't seen it personally, but I've heard great things about it and it's, it's on, I guess it's on Prime video. It's the whale, the bread and free film. I hear, I hear it's fat, you know, it's a drama. It's not like our usual thing, but I hear it's really, really good. So I don't think it's something I would ever watch, but you know, if it's, if that's the kind of thing you're into, then I hear it's really good. But I mean, there was some good indie ones, like everywhere, everything at once. Oh my God. I tried watching that. It is garbage. It's Really? beautiful, man. If you want to see, if you want to see multi first stuff, watch that instead of Dr. Strange. Yeah. So I, I tried watching it. I got to the part where they're, um, at the IRS and I'm like, no, I'm done. Then I can't do this anymore. Oh, you got to keep watching, man. Yeah. I hear it's almost as good as that. Um, uh, no, that, no. Okay. Nevermind. I, it's something, I can't remember what it is though. It was Dr. Strange one. No, no, no. I think it had to, had to do, crap. What was it? I want to say, um, I want to say Game of Thrones, but not, no, no. Like I said, if you want to compare anything, it would be Dr. Strange. I'm looking, I'm looking because of the multi -verse sort of stuff and that sort of thing. Yeah. That's what it's, that's what it's called. No, I'm not thinking multi -verse. I'm just thinking it was sort of, um, wasn't the Lord of the rings stuff either. It was just something that they put out, they thought was going to be successful and it bombed really bad. Oh, there's a bunch. No, I know that, but it was sort of like, well, there's, um, the Witcher. Yeah, that was it. That was the Witcher. But that, that's not, that's not a movie. It's a mini series. No, I know that. But you know, just things like that, just, you thought they were going to be good and they were just out of absolute trash. Oh no, no. It did everything everywhere at once. It's not trash. It's good. Remember Dev didn't like the original Blade Runner. So he has no say in these sort of things to be fair. I didn't like the original. I thought it was long, convoluted and boring. It is, it is all of those things. Okay. Anyway, um, I was on a airplane recently, so I watched a ton of movies. The one I really want to talk about, because one of them was like the, the third installment of the Fast and Furious movies, Tokyo Drift, which I love. I just watched that for like the eighth or ninth time or whatever. I love that movie. But the ones I actually want to talk about, um, the first one is called The Menu. It's not really within our genre normally, but I think that's also available on Prime now. It is. Or on Disney Plus. It is fucked up in all the best ways. Um, it's basically, um, one of those elitist snobby restaurants in the middle, on an island where these people pay, you know, thousands of dollars to go and have a chef give you, um, food that's not really even food. It's, it's, uh, concepts more than anything like, or, or visual spectacles, but it takes a very dark turn, like three quarters of the way through the movie. And then it just goes off the rails. It is fantastic. I absolutely recommend The Menu. Very, very good. Really enjoyed that. Um, is this where they find out they're eating people? No, I don't think they actually ever eat. That's Soylent Green.

Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins says his team up this defensive intensity in the second half. Come out of halftime with just a renewed energy and mentality. Hey, we got to raise our level both sides of the floor. We made a couple adjustments defensively that paid off for us, which got us going with our groove on offense. And obviously that third quarter kind of changed the game. David roddy and Dylan Brooks had 19 apiece from Memphis while Jaden hardy led the Mavs with 28. Josh green at 23. Bob Stevens Dallas. In Houston, the rockets knocked off the Celtics one 11 one O 9. And jabari Smith scored 24 to lead the young rockets, one of the best teams in the league, where it was in the finals last year, you know, just competing with him. You know, going down to the wire like that with a great team like that. It's just real promise in this room. It's really good for us. The bucks beat the kings one 33, one 24.

"mavericks" Discussed on The Maverick Paradox Podcast
"Yeah, it's like that first mentor I told you, once he actually came up to us and said, you know, we've all got to do this work. We need to come in every Saturday for the next month for the half. And I'm not going to be able to pay you anything. We've got to go and do it. Now, this was back in the days when there was lots of unions, and we were an organization that would strike for it to strike because we had to do an extra 5 hours for the entire week, for example. Back in the day. And everybody went, yeah, right. And it wasn't until we got back from the decks. We went, what are we doing? Why are we doing it? Because it was irrelevant because he was so trusted if he said we had to do it. Well, we're coming along the Saturday. No, fine. But the questions we write for that, can we wear a jeans? As opposed to why we come in because he was so trusted. And so urgent he comes from knowing that the person is transparent, you trust them, they told you it's important, you buy into the story. And the alignment and you just go, when do you need to be done? I'm there. Yeah. So was a company look like that's implementing maverick leadership. So give me the visionary picture of a company that's got your principles, they're doing it well. How are they different from the company down through debt to not doing it? Okay. Well, first of all, people want to be there. But you have full engagement. Nobody looking at the clock going to come to go home now in two hours. That's right. So you have to encouragement. You have radical candle. I would say, people will tell you as it is with love, but they would say, yep, this is the one where or this will work, but if we do this, there will be decisive leadership and you know what I mean by that. People will make a decision with the right decision and they'll execute the decision. So they'll understand that execution is more important than constantly making the strategy sound good. So they want to say through. A team that you're looking at inclusivity, you're looking at commented diversity. So maverick leaders think things that follow my relationship want the best. The best means you need to get as many viewpoints as possible. Not to the point of your paralyzed with too many information. So you just can make a decision. They won't be they won't be killed with too much data. But they will want they won't care what color they are. They won't care about any of the marginalisation or the protected characteristics. They want the best person for the job. And they'll also you won't see an organization that has mavericks ship on board will not have any yes men. No one will tell you yes.
"mavericks" Discussed on The Maverick Paradox Podcast
"So interesting. I'm curious to dig more into that. So as an organization, if you're trying to develop, I'm guessing you'd want everybody on your staff to lead a maverick leadership. It's not just the people who are the bosses, so to speak. Everybody up and down the organization. So how does an organization create an atmosphere for more maverick leadership? It will probably be one of the best interviewers I've ever spoken to. Great question. Thank you. I appreciate that. Thank you. I think what you would need to do is provide an environment where it's okay to step out your job description. That is okay to say, this isn't going to work. Here's another way of looking at it. Because lots of companies don't want people to actually challenge. But challenge with the right intention, you'd want to make sure this psychological safety. You would want to provide guidelines not rules. And focus on execution, the right way, and the output, not the outcome. So I think when people focus on outcome, they will focus on getting something done regardless of how it happens, whereas you look so, for example, if you are saying we've got to get a particular project over the line and the outcome is the project's done. The output might mean that everybody's gone long-term sick now because they're so burned out. So it's a great outcome rubbish output. So execution is looking at the output rather than implementing to the outcome. I love that. You said something else I think I was critical there is that you have to create an environment of safety. If you're going to have maverick leaderships, you have to be secure enough in your own leadership to let people be mavericks. But that means that you know what? Yeah, go ahead. It's like, because mavericks, magic leadership, is about intelligent disobedience. Have you heard about that earlier? So it's you need to be secure as a leader to accept the going to be a bunch of people who may be the most junior that will be encouraged to disobedient. But your company will be much stronger if you let people lead based on their maverick leadership. And I think that's the key to this is that you create, even though you may have uncomfortableness in your organization, you have so much of a higher quality of leader and employee engagement in your company because of that kind of leadership. Yeah, it's a comfortable tension.

"In terms of how people work with me, sometimes that's a question that. I don't think you focus on as much as the types of projects. Or the industry, a lot of people ask me about what industry do I work with or what kinds of projects. And for me, I love the tech space. I love places where people are innovating, service, service providers, like for example, lawyers or sometimes in the healthcare space. I love to learn new things. That's really the bottom line is I love that quick study mentality. I love to just jump on board with enough knowledge to ask the right questions from that outsiders perspective. Yeah. As opposed to the insider's perspective that I'm always thinking about it from the audience's perspective. So it's from blogs to bios, ebooks to E courses and of course, website content and content for books. It's all kinds of all sorts of content. The other thing that I suppose people ask me is about facing my fear of video. And that all happened because of Facebook Live, actually, doing my own videos became a no brainer when people would bumble and fumble and get zillions of views and get good responses. I was like, I'm missing out here. I think I definitely had a fair of videos for a while. I hated the idea of having to do to do videos. How did you overcome your fear? Essentially, when you go live, the irony sometimes live videos can seem like more pressure. But in some ways, there are actually less pressure because when you're live, people don't expect you to be as polished. Okay, especially on a platform like Facebook, which is, although you can use it for business, it's just more informal in general. So I felt what a great place to start where people are bumbling and fumbling around me, why can't I join them?
"mavericks" Discussed on The Maverick Paradox Podcast
"I could either go nowhere and do nothing, be miserable, be empty, depressed. I was starting to really feel that. Really be at a low point in life, or I could go out there, do something and build myself up. From a position of strength and look at what I can do well, rather than trying to fit into these boxes. I mean, I'll give you an example. I wasn't sharing my blindness openly at the time to people that I was just randomly sending resumes to. Not really. But, you know, targeting resumes too. And so I got some interesting phone calls, like, do you know graphic design? I could draw your circle, will that help? Or even just other skills that I could learn to do, but that were completely out of my Wheelhouse, do you know HTML? Yeah, I know a little. But not enough to be useful in a job, so I feel like I felt like the job search process I felt broken down by it, whereas the entrepreneurial process was a building up, it was building on the portfolio I had. Going online, getting those initial jobs, building my portfolio even more. And finally, going out there facing my fear, networking, in the real world, because back in the day, we didn't have all this zoom stuff, we weren't really, a lot of the online freelance world was very commoditized. It was just kind of like, oh, here's a writer. Write this stuff for me. And that was kind of it. And it was less valuable and paid less than what I do now, which is branded content customized content with my wise words that matter business that's all about helping them to boost their credibility. Demonstrate what they know in a way that appeals to the audience or if not, I mean, a lot of times you don't want to share all of what you know or it doesn't make sense. It doesn't appeal to the audience. So you want to share the story. How did you learn? How did you get the experience or what are the turning points? What was your kind of maverick moment where you decided to make something a little different or have some new subtlety in your business that differentiates you from your competition? So is that how you do the ghost writing where you ask? Is that how it works? Pressing questions. Yes. And then you rewrite it in words that you think will have built in the target audience. Absolutely, and my goal of course is to do it in the client's voice. Okay. These ghost writing something that anyone can do.

"Our gain. It's amazing. Yeah. And he was the one who introduced me to the skiing. And that was very powerful because even though I had sort of imagine oh, it might be fun to ski and what a free feeling that must be going down the hill and whatnot. I didn't really think all that much of it. And I skied because the opportunity came up and I seized the day. Yeah. What can we learn from you, Christa? If you think something's impossible, go out there and find the Mavericks of the innovators, the people who are already doing something or those people who can kind of help you think outside of the box. That's what that was my lesson anyway. That was my lesson from skiing. Along with the basics like doing your research and taking those small steps to possibly get to those giant leaps later on and also the idea of the other part of it that I learned too is sometimes you don't have to be particularly good at something. To be proud of what you've done or even to inspire others. In the case of skiing, any of us who've tried skiing know what a challenge it is. And we know that a lot of people are so afraid that they don't even want to try it. So that is something that anyone who's tried skiing and who's taken the lessons and who's fallen and gotten back up and all of that. And especially if they had some challenge that got in the way that they were able to overcome, I think is inspiring. And a lot of things are inspiring like that, you know, in business, telling our stories can be inspiring because it's hard to share from that perspective of weakness and or perceived weakness, whereas if we turn it around and we share from a position of strength of what we've overcome, what we faced, what we've learned, how we've grown, then we're more human.

"At one point, and this was really the peak moment of my skiing was, it wasn't the time that I got on the ski lift. It was actually the time that the instructor gave me that little push down that little hill. And I was doing it. I was gliding. I was skiing. I felt so free. I was flying. And of course, I was falling, and I got back up again. You know what? It is amazing. I think it's amazing because it takes such courage because as far as you're concerned, you're the first. It's the first time you've done it. And to do anything that you've never done before is scary. But to do something where there is such risk is amazing. Well, I was not an adventurous kid. I never even broke a bone. And you make it sound like it's a bad thing. Well, I just mean in terms of, you know, I wasn't athletic. I didn't play loads of sports. I didn't. So when I came across this experience, I kind of thought, you know, this is my time to have a little adventure. And what I was told, too, is that the beginners come back in one piece, you know, they don't they don't get hurt. It's usually the people who are advanced who are taking risks who are not taking lessons or who are not following with the instructors saying or just who are going through more challenging courses. What they do is, for blind people, they have an instructor and either one or two ski guides that literally forge a path forward. So that they can then call out the lead person can then call out directions. And all of them are working together to ensure that I have a path forward. That there's enough room that there's not

"How are you doing, Christa? I'm good. How are you, Judith? I am pretty cool and excited for a call. So before we kick off though, tell us who you are. Well, I am a ghost writer and blogger, so I'm all about building trust for clients. It's ironic, though, that for so many years I was telling other people's stories. And that really is my focus, sharing the stories behind the knowledge, the wisdom, and being able to share other people's moments, what they've discovered, being able to learn and write about what I'm learning. At the same time, even though that's the focus, it's ironic that I wasn't sharing my own story. Even when I shared other people's, whereas now, I've stopped shying away from my story. I've started to embrace it and speak about it and go on podcasts like this because what I've discovered is people tell stories about us whether we want them to or not, so we might as well influence the stories that people tell you know what, I think what you just said there is absolutely perfect is that people will tell stories about us whether we like it or not. So the fact that you can influence the story can make a huge, huge difference. So what is your story then? Well, I am a business owner, networker, and skier, who just happens to be blind. Oh. So how do you do that then? Well, the skiing is a lot of fun. It's a fun story and it's allowed me to talk about my blindness from a strength based perspective and also from a perspective of fun. Here's something that I've done that a lot of people haven't tried. And wow, wow, wow, there's a whole community of blind skiers. I'm just one crappy skier among many people who ski. And people don't realize this. People think, wow, this is amazing. And it is, because when I first found out about skiing, I thought, well, I didn't know that it was possible.

"In this episode, I speak to Christa janik, who is the founder of wise words that matter. She's passionate about uncovering client untold stories sharing real impact through the written word. Having once shied away from her own personal journey, Christa now speaks about her experiences facing fear to become a skier who happens to be blind. Christa inspires her clients to share their own challenges and wisdom with the world. She believes that you want to do something and can't find the Mavericks that can and learn from them.

"Exactly. And that person needs to have credibility. So the ability to achieve what they say they're going to achieve. Now it doesn't mean that that person needs to be on knowledgeable, but if they say we're going to do X, I expect X to be done. Oh, yeah. If along the way, it can't be done for X one, so reasons. I expect to also be told, you know, that's part of credibility, isn't it? Well, are we planning to do this? But we can't do this because the next one's only like, okay, fine. But not to do what you say you're going to do is a lack of credibility and lack of integrity, lack of character, is how I think mavericks are very linear in their thinking. Also, mavericks have an extreme problem solving need. Extreme is like a dog worrying a bone. It's like, let's get to the bottom of this. And when everyone's moved on, it's like, no, we have not solved this problem. We are not thinking until it's done. She's good enough, isn't good enough. No. 'cause how can you complete? How can you execute if you haven't figured out what the actual problem is? So I think back what you were saying about people when you arch questions and people are worrying why you challenging me, right? It's not that it's just I really need to get it. So I'm going to keep asking questions until I get it. And the plus side of that is the solution comes very quickly for the maverick. So they may spend. So if you look at a problem, that's a 100% they can spend 800 at the time. Worrying the question, you know? More questions, questions, questions, questions, questions, questions. And then it's like, oh, just do this then. And that solution comes really fast because they totally get the real problem, not the problem you stated, but the real problem.

"There's too many people under the lie for it to be fair. So social fabric is all about fairness for all as opposed to Venice for me. All right, so now that Jude has taken us through that and you're listening here and hopefully still have your AirPods and you're going, all right. So I fancied myself the socialized maverick and this is what I do. I build leaders because I want leaders to lead more people to more outstanding outcomes. But what is it that as a socialized maverick or somebody who sees themselves as a socialized maverick, what's something that our listeners should be on the lookout for in others as potential mavericks, like early mavericks that they can shape one direction or the other, meaning that they can identify something now in a junior person to help make sure that they go down the socialized maverick path rather than be left to their own devices and possibly go the other direction. That's interesting. Good question. I would say because you can, once you can't create mavericks per se, you can create maverick behavior in the workplace. And I think if you looked at the capabilities of mavericks, which I've called Keystone, to one of the things that mavericks, socialized memories, have a lot of knowledge. And when I say knowledge, what normally happens is, let's give an example. Suppose in somebody's in HR. And they are a good HR specialist. So they know law and employ relations with union rights and all this kind of stuff. You'd expect that. You expect to competent hate to our person to do that. But what a socialized maverick or the right maverick behavior would do would say, what is it about my job? Where does it hit next? So they might say, okay, I know HR really well. But I need to know ops because that's what's driving the business. So then that person will then understand it. I mean, they look again and say, maybe by finance. So what happened? So you go from being a specialist in their subject to somebody who becomes specialist in other subjects. So they become much more knowledgeable in the organization so they can have better connections or they can really add value. So one of the things would be is to increase knowledge beyond your function and deepness, not just sharing knowledge, but deep knowledge because then you can be more creative or innovative and add more value to an organization. The next thing would be emotional awareness.

"Oh, isn't that the truth? And it's really perplexing, because it's like, but why not? I don't mind if someone tells me I'm rubbish, because I can learn something new. That's cool. So the capability respected him, I then went on this journey of learning if I want to achieve something. How do I still get that thing without upsetting people on the way? So then I looked at the behaviors I looked at persuasion and how people feel. And of course, when you do that, you change yourself. So you don't go into change yourself, but you end up changing yourself. So I eventually left that organization that went to a couple of career changes. And then made the realization that I understood mavericks really well. The people that people couldn't get on with the ones that played devil's advocate really changing people and I couldn't understand why people just didn't understand their point of view. And that's one of somebody said to me because it's your maverick too. You need to come out as a maverick. And I was like, oh. Yeah, yeah. And I ended up leaving a corporate life to set up my own business. Which we originally began with working just with mavericks, but now as expended around helping other people develop maverick traits and personal strategy so that they can also be successful in work. That's fantastic. And at 17 how bold to have the thoughts you had and how amazing that you had somebody who could connect with you in a way that you went aha, got it. All right, let me work on this. Let's see what this is all about. Because what a great journey it's been since that moment. To not only for yourself, but to impact so many other people. That's the thing. I think socialized fabrics is all about working for the greater good. So you really are looking about what is it that I know that other people can grow from? Or I understand what that person is going through. Because one of the things we've maverick is that the very they see people's weaknesses and vulnerabilities very, very easily, very, very quickly, but I can see behind the mask. And the socialized maverick will then help to empower that person past that. Whereas an extreme maverick will use that vulnerability for their own goods. Got it. So socialized maverick working for the greater good, extreme maverick, maybe some

Playing <Speech_Male> a factor in in <Speech_Male> game six. <Speech_Male> And how that might impact <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> the series for them. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> We saw through the <Speech_Female> first few games of the series. <Speech_Female> How <Speech_Female> chris paul's <Speech_Female> just lack of mobility <Speech_Female> with <Speech_Female> that shoulder and <Speech_Female> inability <Speech_Female> to shoot <Speech_Female> pass and even <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> handled the ball <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> effectively <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> really <Speech_Female> hurt. The suns offense <Speech_Female> the lakers <Speech_Female> defense <Speech_Female> which was number one in <Speech_Female> the league was just able <Speech_Female> to key <Speech_Female> in on <SpeakerChange> devon <Speech_Female> booker. <Speech_Female> Just pack <Speech_Female> the <SpeakerChange> top <Speech_Female> of the key takeaway driving <Speech_Female> lanes <Speech_Female> and force <Speech_Female> other guys on phoenix <Silence> apt to step <Speech_Female> up without <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> having someone like chris <Speech_Female> paul to create <Speech_Female> for them <Speech_Female> so he <Speech_Female> when he reinjured <Speech_Female> that shoulder <Speech_Female> again today. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> It didn't look <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> great to be honest. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> It took him <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> over <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> a week the first <Speech_Female> time.

"mavericks" Discussed on Dallas Hoops Fancast - A Podcast for Dallas Mavericks Fans
"We don't i don't think as recording this. We don't know who it is. We know that three players are out during jalen. Brunson josh richardson. One of them is positive. And then today we just found out that maxie is positive so there's maxi plus one other player. Those two players will have to be out to fourteen days which is five to eight games and then the other two that are just quarantining for seven days. that's oh. I thought it was four days. I think it's seven. Yeah so that's two games. They'll miss two more to your games. Yeah that they'll miss. And then yeah maxine and the other one will be out for another four five six to eight gay. So you're looking at a starting lineup. Next game of luca hardaway. I think a one takes over. Josh green. Because i can imagine was surprisingly good. Yeah and then James johnson probably starting at the four for for maxine. And then cauley stein at the five with your bench. Trey burke in powell and josh green and hopefully nobody else has to play. Yeah so i mean it's a. It's going to be tough. It's gonna be rough. Yeah i wonder look. There's some and i don't know if anybody has any inside. Knowledge of porzingis is coming back. I have well. I like how you just brushed that off. Like i'm trying to make a point. It's not about you. I think it's skin way that mentioned that. He thinks they might bring him back in the hornets game because they didn't want to bring them back in the pelicans and have to with stephen adams elbowing him across. Even adams is out. Oh he is okay migraine. I was like just good. So i can be serious. I'm thinking if i'm the mavericks if your intention is to bring about against the hornets considering the situation can you bring them back. One game early. Yeah just out of necessity. I'm not asking you to play him. Forty minutes ten to fifteen minutes just to help offset the lack of players that have and it's just one game. Is it really going to hurt. Clearly he's healthy targeted the hornets. And yeah maybe. If stephen adams is out and he's healthy ready to go why not. Yeah i mean if if that is it if it's just a one. His name was the white powell he would have been the order. Well last game. Yeah i mean if it was that just one game difference thin. Yeah just bring him back to prison back. They're going to be social and look. I'm not saying. I want to risk injury. You're putting his career in jeopardy but if it's a one game difference now quitting any raise. Yeah yeah it can't make that much of a difference if it's longer i get it But yeah it's a it's gonna be rough for the mavericks. I mean but a lot of teams are dealing with this. They actually just announced that they're postpone the game between the celtics and heat. I think the heat and somebody so that's going on anyways so hopefully they can still get some wins. Duri time per. Yeah so we'll see but that that's that's the ugly coming up for the mavericks because it is i mean. Thankfully they want against the magic they had players out to in its magic and their next two games. Aren't against the lakers and the clippers. It's the pelicans and the hornets. Yeah so of course. I already loss against the hornets. Good then chances are will be at true Will get to our game predictions at the end of the episode..
