"melinda" Discussed on NICE WORK! A Super Nice Club Podcast

"You didn't but Melinda really does a great job of organizing this book into strategies that you can take a look at around a topic that you're concerned with. Obviously very few of us are going to be concerned that all of our kids are racist bullies with no self esteem who hate their brothers or sisters right. It's probably one or two things in here that you have a concern around or you feel as a parent that you could use some guidance on or you just don't have any knowledge of and so that's that's worth it alone right and then as a result of all these things i think you can kind of trust. Your kids probably pretty rad at the thing that they're interested in school. It might not be math. You may love math in your kid might get these or sees math. And you know you're bummed but they could be super into theater and a and a genius at that thing right and it'll be capable of just crushing the things that they're the most interested in when you can come out them as a parent that doesn't push them too darn hard. It's a tough world out there. We can't we. We tend to think. But when i was a kid when i was a kid. Throw that out the window. Because it's different now. I promise you it's different and yes i do promise. It's harder for them. Would you agree overall that. It's harder for the kids right now especially kovic time. I mean come on these kids g absolutely absolutely it is. i mean. They've been through so so much especially like little kids. I mean they've just gone through these huge shifts in their whole entire sense of reality over the past two years. You know it's just it's gotta be so hard. But i've been so impressed. By how like flexible and resilient kids have been to you know. I mean certainly. They're struggling. But i've also been very impressed by how well my own kids like handled.

If you're operating at a scarcity, don't there's voices that need to be heard and that's your voice. You need to figure out what you're laying as and go out there. Something that you just love the shout from the rooftops, that's the podcast for you. It's just, and with pipe, it's going to make it so you can monetize. It's going to make it so you can be found, and it's going to level the playing field in so many ways.

"And I did. I put myself out there and I approached you. And I said, hey, I want to be part of this. And I gave you how I thought I could be a part of it. You did the same thing that you did for your prom, right? Because you immediately not only did you approach me, but you immediately started contributing and adding value. And the minute people do this. I think it's interesting. I've mentored a lot of entrepreneurs over the years. And the best thing to do if you want something, yes is ask. But it's also in the way you ask. And I like your story, not only about the prom, but also about approaching because it was being empathetic to where you could add value. And being positive and enthusiastic, not just showing up with a begging bowl or like me, me, me, but how can I love you? And I think that's vital. Because when people approach a big influencer or a company, they want to work with or contribute to or whatever and have that in their mind's eye, anything is possible. The other thing, too, is asking for advice or mentorship from people. It's really the same thing. I remember my dad saying to me, very early on, you know, Melinda, if you want to know how to do someone, just figure out who's the best at it and go and ask them. Just ask well they do it. You'd be surprised how easy it is to do that because people at the top of their game at the very top of their game tend to be the most generous. Because they don't really have anything to lose. They're not in scarcity. They've succeeded. They want to give back and they're flattered that you're asking and people enjoy giving. And making a positive impact..

Because we can all take a lot of action, but if it's going nowhere if we're stuck on a task treadmill, you know, like kind of a hamster wheel. Absolutely.

How Talking About Feelings Helps Raise Kind and Generous Kids With Author Melinda Wenner Moyer

"I started the book with kindness and generosity and helpfulness. Because i felt like those were kind of like really key traits that to me was sort of the opposite of ass. Hillary like. that's how i kind of conceived these like what are the traits. That are the opposite of what you would have if you were an asshole. So yeah i think with generosity and helpfulness. They think that was surprising. Was how the how the research really clearly showed that talking about feelings and allowing your kids to have feelings acknowledging them. Validating them that is a really important foundation for the development of generosity and helpfulness. You know because it's kind of counterintuitive. Like why would talking about feelings make a child more helpful more generous. But then when i dug into the research i mean it. It does make sense because you know kids in order to be generous in order to be helpful. You kind of have to be able to recognize another person's feelings and other person's state of mind and put yourself in their shoes and figure out what they need. What would make them feel better. What what would make them happier and in order to do that. You really have to be pretty fluid in the language of emotions and sort of understanding and recognizing them and so yeah. The research pretty clearly shows that like talking about feelings is a really important aspect of helping your kids develop these these

"Final topic is that one of the people. I follow on twitter posted quote after a great deal of thought a lot of work on our relationship. We have made the decision to end our marriage over the last twenty seven years. We have raged three incredible children and built foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy productive lives. We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation. But we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives melinda gates and bill gates and had a a reaction or to wonder about you brian. How did you what what went through your mind when you heard the news. The only point of comparison. I can really think of with. This is two thousand. Nineteen when jeff bezos split from his. Wife mackenzie scott and she immediately started donating to a number of different Philanthropic causes but that couple when they split really didn't have the philanthropic reach that bill and melinda gates do clearly so i think melinda gates from what i understand of that foundation really does get involved with decisions. That are involved. That happened there. And i get the feeling that if she wants to make any changes to what this foundation does. It's going to involve a lot of time in planning but i really think this is one of those stories where it is. Certainly something personal. I'm sorry that it happened. But i also look at this as something that really could affect a lot of things when i think about philanthropy when i think about public policy and how that's by these dollars that's coming in this is potentially something really big.

"Melinda and she rode three has a goal and Melinda very well happy afternoon Hey ed when I got a bone to pick with the all you know on the radio but mark I don't know if you've seen this picture but a friend of mine email me a picture yesterday afternoon at approximately three thirty from Barton springs pool and it took a snapshot which is probably gets a loft but the person in that snapshot look like Melinda branch mark I contend that our teammate was at Barton today on the first day of opening and not on the show I rest my case the sun burn probably gave me a way to hahaha see I'm a I'm an investigative reporter I'm an investigative reporter but I'm glad you're back now thank you well in Texas is definitely the focus of many national news stories today about our spike in corona virus cases hospitalizations have hit an all time high you look at the Washington post CNN the hill dot com Texas Tribune statesman dot com they're all focused in on what they say is a rising number of coronavirus cases since governor Abbott started reopening Texas has been a saying of course they're blaming it on re opening a taxes what's it what I think is important is yes we may have an up tick in cases we all knew that was coming the more testing is being done and also I think it's kind of encouraging because that means more people are getting out and about when you also see that up to taking cases yes but I think it's also very important while we are seeing more people being hospitalized we still are no where near overwhelming our hospitals with this so I don't think it's as a sign to say up put the brakes on and we've got to stop everything and start going backwards again yeah in all of these stories said I started looking to try to find out okay what percentage of our hospital beds are filled with corona virus patients what kind of room do we have to work with here and it was really hard to find so I decided I'll just go to the state of Texas official website in the health department and we've got about two thousand people in hospitals in the entire state right now being treated for the corona virus just a little over two thousand we have thirteen thousand six hundred forty five open hospital beds ready for other corona virus patients had to dig deep for that information all right there on the Texas website I did yes but I couldn't find it anywhere in the Washington post to the hill dot com what about here in Austin we have ninety three in the hospital right now we have six hundred and sixty open beds that are dedicated to corona virus patients just in Austin well it goes to show that they're not interested in putting this in context it is a headline it is to grab your attention and say oh we told you you shouldn't have opened up you should be scared don't go back to that job is calling you back don't do this but when you put it in context it's what the governor has been saying all along his long as we're not going to overwhelm our health care system there's no reason to keep the economy here in Texas shut down I would I would echo that Melinda unless there's a used spike in hospitalizations I think you're right nothing as we continue open they're going to be more people get sick but I think this is a wake up call to choose also to people who are over sixty five who are vulnerable to say Hey you gotta be careful got to be careful where you go who you see and if you wouldn't want to wear that facemask or not but yeah this is this a bunch of numbers and it's it's it's a scary deal because when you think of a call within the hostile you think a death and a lot of times that doesn't happen but you can get in here and join us with your thoughts call or text is five one two eight three six zero five ninety can hit us up on Twitter as well at mark Melinda in ed they're having the hearing in Washington DC and a house committee on the police and the package of reforms they've been taking testimony Cleveland pastor Darrell Scott is an ally of president trump he was called to testify today at that house committee hearing and he specifically wanted to talk about these calls to defund the police dismantle police departments the prospect of deep funding N. or dismantling police forces across the country is one of the most Weiss irresponsible proposals by American politicians in our nation's history and makes absolutely no sense at all at least to me he said to you do this and you will leave good honest hard working citizens at the mercy of criminals mmhm I remark we need to have hearings we need to talk about police tactics and training I think it was Melinda sent me the story about Bernard Sanders Bernie Sanders says no don't shut down the police department different police departments I think it goes back to training and techniques for me mark that's what it goes back to well in it we spoke with a can Cassidy of the Austin police association he's the president there and avoid it if you ever he said and I also saw a report out of Dallas so they were having this discussion there with their city council that about eighty to ninety percent of the budget is for personnel so when you start to take money away from the police guess what that does that decreases the number of police officers whether they have to fire them or whether they walk away because they're going to have a pay cut and that that of course means what for it just a normal citizen that needs the police it's going to take a longer to get there if they have someone available former Austin police chief and now Houston police chief art Acevedo was also testifying before Congress today he agrees with pastor Scott when it comes to cutting the budget for police or dismantling police departments he says don't go down that path it'll be a disaster history has shown that underfunding the police can have disastrous consequences.

"Hi it's great to have a great to be here thank you thank you thank you Melinda so I heard the president and I thought I heard him say in his address to the nation a couple nights ago but but I certainly heard him say when he was having his little round table with the insurance company executives and brought the news media in that he he had directed the insurance industry or they had volunteered or whatever to cover almost all the costs no no no copays no deductibles for coronavirus testing and treatment is that the case did I hear that right well that is what what did come out of his mouth and yet that does seem to be mis characterization of what our for profit insurance system is willing to do we immediately after word that a lobbyist from the largest health insurance lobby made clear that they had pretended that they had agreed to testing but not to waive copays and deductibles for treatment and and so that was you know they were contradicting him or the mis characterization and you know I think it's really just laid bare just look at just how greedy are for profit health insurance health suppose that healthcare system is that they are continuing to make clear that they intend to profit off of coronaviruses treatment in the middle of a pandemic well the distinction that I think that it people who are opposed to Medicare for all keep missing and I'm baffled as to why particularly you know the Democrats who opposed to Medicare for all I keep missing this is that the health insurance industry it you know to call it the health insurance industry is a misnomer these are not people of any credentials with regard to health these are bankers you know they're they're they're taking enormous amounts of money they're scamming ten twenty thirty percent off the top and put in their own pockets the farmers the last two CEOs of United healthcare the first one bill acquired took one point six billion dollars in total compensation Stephen Helms I followed him and took off I believe was over a hundred million dollars in compensation these guys are getting and and there's over a hundred people working at health care make over a million dollars a year these guys are getting rich and all they do is pay our bills they just write checks the bankers they're not health people or my missing something that is exactly right and in fact their their business model is to take an obviously more in premiums and they pay out in services for services so there is enormous incentive to deny care in our for profit helped suppose that healthcare system and what we know what that means is that one fully one third of our in healthcare dollars so you know we spend double what most other countries are compatible countries spend on health care and our outcomes are dead last in almost every indicator well that's because of a fully one third of what we spend goes into CEO pay goes into profit and profits for shareholders etcetera when you really think about it the idea that anyone would earn a profit over healthcare and basic health care and now lead even more bear in the context of this public health emergency is an outrage and I think I think it's starting to I think what we're seeing is that even those who have been opposed to Medicare for all do find themselves realizing that we do need that in the context of the corona virus because this isn't it health care should be a human right but also if your neighbors don't have access to testing and treatment and vaccine when they become available that means that we are in a much more dangerous position than other peer countries and and being able to combat this pandemic yeah absolutely so essentially and and and this is I think probably the most shocking part of this and and I was surprised this morning looking at the news reporting on this and nobody was pointing this out essentially what the health insurance industry just said to the American public is that at because I I because there's very very few people who have you know no copays no deductibles you know there's there's very few I I'm guessing probably fewer than five percent of Americans have policies that have no copays no deductibles so basically what the health insurance industry said to the American public was if you think you might have the corona virus and if you can't afford that yeah you know.

"And now back to the market Melinda show streaming live on the news radio kale BJ at ten thirty to one of the textures have on their mind Melinda a someone wants to know what time is homeless camp happy hour with refresh I'm as someone else said wouldn't just putting a dumpster be a cheaper option for taxpayers you know slighted dumpster underneath these overpasses would that be cheaper they they have considered doing that it was reported by our news team last week they are considering the lacing dumpsters at some of these big intersection slash overpasses I we have Joe from had other things this is a good idea because he'd rather have a place for them to dump it rather than a huge pile that attracts rats and who knows what else yeah and that we're talking about a fox seven news report that the city is beginning a weekly trash service to four of the homeless encampments at major intersections or highway overpasses they're gonna go by and hand them trash bags and say put your trash in these bags will be back once a week to pick up the trash bags and help tidy up your location here on public property I could see this expanding as well because of the composting program we talked about they could have separate bags green bag is for your compostable materials the violent bag is for the other things that go in the landfill I think that if he goes that far the city is putting a lot of trust that these people are going to do that I I just don't see that happening I I don't fly because they don't have enough time to do that the I know that all the time in the world is the fact is that they don't care it's not a big priority to them on because if it was a they would find the local convenience store which is just across the street to throw their trash in their trash bins they don't care so that the to think that they're going to start carrying all the sudden because I they get bags in which to put it in and have someone to come around every week to pick it up I think it is is a little naive we're also talking about two multiple reports to seem to indicate ice did not go after the two thousand people over the weekend who were under orders by judges to leave the country.

"melinda" Discussed on Women in Business

"Translate very much over to when you're making a transition into another one. We can all be the best secret never known. Well, that's for sure. So so what are some of the programs that you have that people might be interested in? I am just starting. It will be in January, of course, on the power of questions, which will be taking topic a month and just discussing it the looking at how that affects our life. Be it the power of love the power of work, the power of others, the power of a community to start to tap into those things that we've sort of put on the back burner for the day when we have enough time, and realizing that we really do need to take the time to do it now because it adds to our life. One of the biggest questions is one. Will I get to it? We need to realize we get to it. When it's a priority. Yeah. That's always a big question. You know? And of course, the other thing what is the priority today may not be a priority tomorrow, and and that kind of difficult when you focused everything that you've been doing on this one goal so to speak, and then, you know, things change like you said, you had a major shift, and so things changed and you had to change along with it. And we don't like that very much. So I think that that's a big point two. And then of course, you you raise the point about wanting to be like him wanting to be loved how does that apply to people when they're on their journey. Oh, I I rarely believe that we need to know that within us, and we all do, but I don't know that we really acknowledged it. So when you're working with someone are you really giving them the answers that are true to you. Are you giving the answers you'd think they want? Because in every relationship we bring all our other relationships in. I am. Ecorse, I want everyone to let me we all want everyone to love was. But I remember working with the woman forever ago. And I swear I must have done something in a past life because she just didn't like me. And it had nothing to do with me. And it was a very strange experience and some ways I guess that helped me, but it also made me realize I do wanna please I do want to be the person in the room that you like talk king win. And perhaps it was finding my own voice or vice but being more comfortable with it that maybe my vices, I do want a lot of attention. And I'm not getting it from you. Or maybe it's I want you to sit there and say that's the best idea anyone's ever had. But then the question is who am I cheated? And ultimately, I'm just cheating myself. Wow. Yeah. That's true. That's true. So let me ask you something. Melinda. How can people get in touch with you? What's the baiter, especially to reach Melinda? Is there's something special that you want to offer our audience. What do they what should they how can they get in touch with you? That's the most important thing at my website, Melinda. Jake, Kelly dot com. And and that's only without an E. It's melinda. Emi L I N D A J K E L L Y. Yes in thank he is. So very much for for that clarification. Appreciate it very much and in. I am working on a calendar of thoughts that I will have available for the new year. Wow. That's great. And that's available to people who come to your website. Yes. It'll be availables. Download. Fantastic Brady thank heavens thank heavens for the joyful PDF. That is so true. That is so true where you know. It's interesting because I know that you've done a lot of volunteering in the fast and women who are listening to this. You know, women who may not be in business yet. But wanted to go into business need to understand that the volunteer work, you do counts as work experience. And all the attributes that you bring volunteering are are things that you can bring to your work life, and and you need to make sure that when you put your resume together that that experience is included would you agree? Oh heavens. Yes. If you think about if you're on the P, and you're putting on an event, you're doing budgeting, you're doing staffing, you're doing resource management. I really feel too often..

"We don't think about when you have a team working on a project, and it comes to fruition. And you can look at the end. And no you've achieved this that together. Each person is brought their component and made this work, and you can look at this. If it's a PR campaign, if it's the project for a client, and you can see the happiness that you brought to yourself personally and fulfillment into the client. So wonderful feeling if you look at a play everybody, there's so many moving parts each person bringing their own has a sensible film. It that creates the ultimate end result. Which is the performance which then creates the next result, which is the appreciation of the audience. We've started lost that sense of tangible and intangible success tangible is I gave you a service. You gave me a cheque intangible is I gave you a smile, and you gave me one back. Wow. Yeah. That's really true. You know? I I like that. I like that comparison. That's very good. No, what has your biggest disappointment taught news? Oh, I had a year, right? Literally had everything sort of implode and had to rethink the entire future. And could have been very sad about it. Instead just sat there and thought well young not thrilled about this. And it hurt. And then had to ask myself. What was I doing? And why was I do it was I doing it because I wanted to do it was I doing it because it made me happy or was I dealing it. Because I had always done it. And there was a time that made perfect sense. But it didn't make that that sense anymore. And now that sorta helped me get to the next place. It was it's very scary to ask yourself. What do you really wanna do? Yeah. That's that's one of my big question that the people what you want out of life. Want your life to look like what do you want your date of life? You know? And is what you're doing is all the actions that you're taking a does that really have anything to do with where you wanna go in life? Sometimes we do things because we we're just used to doing them by rote. Sometimes we do it. Because other people pressure us to do it. Or we think while we're supposed to do that. But does it really have anything to do with where we want to go? So how how are you operating in business now Melinda? What is it that you do what does your day? Look like. Oh, my day is quite delightful and entertaining and amusing in full. Because with you wear many hats each of us worse many hats. So I still have aspects of by traditional business that are ongoing continuing. And I've accepted that I'm shifting the focus of that. And then in terms of writing I'm enjoying that tremendously and then working with others. And then moving into speaking, it makes for very a very full day of dreaming rationing that in top of that. No man is an island. You have your social media to tend to you have business things. So dress you have your own, you know, advertising or promotion, so the traits from a traditional business life.

"Do it much easier to think that the person at the front of the room is just boring, and they don't know what they're talking about. But of course, I paint money to be here. I'm spending my time to be here. I I've chosen this. So what's missing and the missing has to be within me. And one of the things I feel I know I do, and I would be willing to bet. A lot of other people do is worse. So smart, we're stupid. I love that. You're right. But I am so busy having all the answers that you're giving me pearls of wisdom, and I'm so busy having all the answers. I'm not taking any of them in. The India where I've learned nothing, and I could have learned everything. So what do you think you're a ha moment was when it all it is kinda click for you. I would say. I was say letting go of what I thought I needed to do an accepting that maybe I was going in the right direction, but needed to make a few changes, and I feel sometimes we get so caught up that we're gonna take this one path. That we don't realize that we moved like a street over we could sail through the traffic, but we are so fixated on this one route we don't understand how we limit ourselves. And I'm in Los Angeles. I use the traffic announced a because we get so caught up that this is the only way to get there. But there are a million ways to get anywhere. It's knowing where you want to end up. That's what's important. So, you know, I guess you know, what you're saying is is absolutely true. Because we do get caught up within our own our own messages, our own hangups, our own, you know, whatever has gone to our paths and so forth. And so that is a part of everything. But you know, it's it's really interesting. What you're saying about you're so caught up in your own messages that you don't always hear what other people are saying. So when people work with you, Melinda. What are some of the things that they're they're trying to find out? I often think we all know what we really want to do. But we're sometimes not able to say it. And sometimes having someone say, yeah, you should do that or giving. You permission. Often, you know, talking with someone and we'll go through a series of questions, and and then I'll just repeat back what they've said. And they know their answer. But they just weren't sure. They could do it or should do it. Or would be okay to do it. And the one finding that situation. Then what are you find our people's biggest hang up? I think we all our biggest hang up for all of us is fear and fear of change in fear of being wrong. It's I heard someone earlier today just recently talking about how the way our educational system is all about the correct answer. But yes, I think most people would agree. The best learning happens when you make a mistake and all everything breaks loose. True that true. I mean, there's no question that we all seem to be in a situation where we we. We think there's only one way to do it. And there's so many different ways to do it. And. Yeah. Go ahead. I was going to say and even in business, or in volunteer capacity, sometimes the best discoveries. The best esprit de corps comes when everything's just fallen apart. And you look at one another and go, well, we have twenty four hours to make this work. And sometimes that will be the impetus to get people inspired and create that team. You haven't been able to make gel or you know, it's the famous little rascals, you know, moment where I have a piano in. My uncle has a barn and we'll put on a play. And it comes together we all had the other moments. But I found most of the time it brings out the best in one another. Will you often fade that the idea of success is multidimensional? Oh, yes. You mean by that? I feel that we have gotten so caught up with does it have a financial number to it. And that is definitely one marker of success. But there are so many other different levels..

She needed something fast in bottom law fine, and it helped for our communication to be much better. And I ended up actually with the very nice friend for a while. Because I'm sure if I'd been wordy in boasts and all of that she would have been like I got three minutes, but you doing. So I get that totally. I get that. Because in the disk, I'm a very high, which means, you know, an extrovert, and and talkative and light to be with people and don't want details and so forth. And my nemesis is exactly the person that you're talking about the analytical detailed, and they have a problem with me because I'm not very detailed. I, you know. That's just not who I am. And if I don't break things down, it's a problem. And I know that I've served as a head on many of these boards, and what I've always done, which is you know, it's it's good for me. I don't not good for anybody else. I've always had like a CPA or somebody on my board who could do the numbers and explain it much better than I could. Because if they wanted to nitty gritty, they weren't gonna get it from me. So I get that. And I I believe that you know, the perfect team is someone who who kind of shows. All the four different facets of the personality because they're all good at different things. But you also talk about introverts and extroverts and then ambivert. So I know what an introvert is. I know what an extrovert is not sure I know what an ambivert is. So tell us the difference in how that impacts working life as well. I read about ambivert s-, and to me made a lot of sense, which is were a little of both which depends on the situation. If I'm with people, I comfortable with I'm a delightful extrovert. But if I go into something new and a new unknown. I may hold back in silos seemed very much an introvert. And I've had people think I'm both an extrovert Annan introvert so ambivert sort of make sense to me because given the situation some of us present differently. Well, that is true. I know that basically, I'm a high, which is very, you know, extroverted when I my other high one is a high D, which is very dominant. So if things don't go my way, I take charge, and there's not very much Esser see about me. You know, I'm not very quiet or very, you know, dutiful kind of person. So, but it's interesting as my life change that was my in my first career when I had a chain of career schools and challenges in a convention service company. I was very much I you would need to be. But when I went on the road is a speaker, I became ID backed up by an eye because most of the people are not going to really believe this because they think oh when you get on stage, that's your old thing. But it isn't. It's getting there. It's making all the. Operation. It's getting all your your things ready, and and taking charge to make sure that the room is set. Right. And and the the Mike are right in the av is, okay, that's deed stuff. So you know, I would become a very high D And backed up by an eye. So yeah, all of this is really really important.

Much for the invitation to be here into chat with you. Well, I have a question. And that is then you know, I love those. Well, I'm wondering what led you to write the book, you know, when you talk about, you know, finding your coach diving deep within as a coach myself, I've had many coaches, and I know that you've had many coaches, but what made you to write this particular book. Well, as I started to go down my road. You know, we're all thoughtful intelligent people, and we all go and look for great advice. And that led me to speaking with people. And I realized one of my issues was my entire life. I had been told by should right. Oh, that's exciting. But it's also daunting because you don't wanna disappoint people. And as I went to seminar conference or webinar, sometimes everything seemed fabulous. And sometimes I felt like I'd spend my time doing nothing, but there were people getting a lot. So I had to ask what what was missing. And as I sat there one meeting speaking with the woman afterwards, I realized it'd be very easy to just make my life going to conferences taking nothing in am. I thought that's not what I wanted. So what was going on that? I'm not getting what I need. And then I realized if the only constant in the room is me, maybe it's neat. Which none of us like to think is the case. I was just going to say, you know, that's kind of shocking experience to all of us when we say, well, this didn't work and this didn't work and this didn't work and the common denominator is us. So it can't be me. Exactly. So I'm sorry Prego on. No, no, no. So so how did that work into the book will be amusing thing is I was originally writing a little tail on fiction? And this just wanted to be written. And I will tell you. I've heard that said by people, and I think oh, yeah. Really? And I now have had to eat my words because I understand sometimes things just wanna be and real quickly. I just sorta felt some of the experiences. I was having our universals and wanted to share it. Well, that's a good reason. Melinda. You know? I mean, I know that there is a course, you know, this is a a women in business show. So people are going to want to know, how's it supply to your work? And and what you do. And I know that you have certain feelings about various tests like Myers, Briggs Berkman, and so forth. I've always used the disc profile, I prefer that. And then I think it's so much easier to understand than Myers Briggs and some of the others. But how do you feel about the various tests available where do they fit into business and so forth? I think they are fabulous starting place. I was on a board..
