The Ruling Class Has Become So Disconnected From the 'Muscular' Class

"So there's two types of economic classes in America. And by the way, one is not necessarily better than the other, right? There's the muscular class, and then there's the zoom and Skype class, right? So I'm part of the zoom in Skype class, okay? That doesn't make me a better person. It just so happens. I was able to keep on doing my work in the midst of the lockdown without having to lift boxes or wear a mask all day long. But the people that actually run the country, which I think never got the credit they deserved quite honestly during the pandemic, are the people that worked at the Amazon fulfillment centers. The people that are police officers, the people that are our firefighters, the people that actually drove trucks and instead, you saw this growing disconnect of the people in charge, have this arrogance and this attitude almost as top down revolution like, oh, you work with your hands, you don't have a doctorate from Harvard, your DOM and your stupid, right? And so but we saw this bubbling up in a variety of different ways. And for those of us that look at the stuff really closely and are worried about these trends, we said, this is not sustainable. You can't declare war on the people that actually make your country run and act as if there won't be a backlash against that, right? It's like a steep on serving me food serfs and servants. And we'd always make jokes about it, you know when Nancy Pelosi would be out in Napa Valley and all of her donor Friends were maskless, right? And every single person serving food outdoors were wearing masks, right? And we saw that whether Obama's birthday party in Martha's Vineyard where, you know, we had to kind of watch all the videos of people that had to wear masks or masks, but they were a sophisticated vaccinated crowd. And we saw that some people call double standards or hypocrisy, it's not. It's hierarchy. It's people in charge I think they're actually better than you. So hypocrisy is like if you actually believe the rule or you say it and you do something else, these are people that actually think they're at a different level of

"Lot of people have dreams like i have dreams. Kate has dreams. People listening to this podcast. They have dreams. But there's a difference between having dreams and actually feet on the grounds accomplishing dreams. So let's get specific like let's really talk this through.

So how are you accomplishing your dream of building the next napa valley in the himalayas recognizing once again that had didn't start off as my dream to be involved. I just thought it would be super cool if they did it But then once. I once i became involved in realized i could be a piece of this and actually i think that bhutan is probably the last country in the world. That has the organic potential to grow. Amazing wine grapes. That doesn't already do it. Most places that can do it had been doing it for thousands of years and it was just to your point earlier. It's remote. And so you know marco polo and the roman army never got there with their handfuls grapes and so they ever planted in there. But what i'm doing is is we've taken a very collaborative approach with that. The country You know there's a. I don't know if you're familiar with with batons spent some time and and obviously the himalayas but they have a concept called gross domestic happiness instead of gross domestic product which is an amazing way to live. But they believe that. What's more important is the happiness of their citizens rather than any arbitrary economic success and so they have different pillars that that guide the gross domestic happiness for us. What we did is. We didn't approach the wine industry as like. Hey here's a way to make a few bucks it was. Here's a way that we think that this mashes extremely well with what you're trying to do with gross national happiness. And and then we went around and we got buy in from all of the various ministries of the government. You know that would have a say in this. The ministry of agriculture the ministry of economic affairs and so so on and so forth so we started with that then. Obviously you know. There's a enormous amount of logistics to try to get grapes up to the himalayas in vineyard plant. And but were. We've planted eight vineyard so far were up to about. We've got a hundred acres or so in total vineyard land but only about fifty acres are planted where we're still trying to experiment and see what's going to work there because no one knows it's never been done before and so you know back to your tactical what do you do. Well you do as much research as you can but eventually you just gotta grip it and rip it and and so we're doing that but we're doing it in a very mindful fail forward kind of way.

You feel like it's worth chai and so you sort of use move past that fear leaning on one another helps. Yeah he'll be worried about it. It's so true. I think i think that having that clarity. I am leaning on each other. You're both have already a commitment to being happy that euthanized signed before being coming partners this partners. I think that's really really. I'm just saying that. From my husband. And i only on the business is so so important. Do you like dessert. Way that you you can tell us like how do you disconnect being in business and being like just with your husband like is their way to say this fanatic. Not you know not get so involved. Every single can with them. Sorry i can't say word great at it. But i. I know that we both were so mean. I'm knitted to finding great experiences for us to enjoy that fools out of you know we might have a conversation about were while we're somewhere but we we enjoy savings love restrooms to to Or insight we love the san francisco giants. We love being around people. We love connecting with our friends so those opportunities allow us to disconnect like that.

Go to places to do things that we enjoy from it with more like you know the plate here. United soared from different angles. But it's fine. It's really nice to be taken care of when you're getting paletti all the time so it's nice to be on the other side so that's relaxing to match with you guys. You know we definitely enjoy we. Don't you know we don't. You're not shy about order food or you know or online that we wanted to a cocktail is something that when you're a kid like this is what i want me to be. You had other dreams. I really do have a i. Don't acknowledged ashes were when i was young nemesis. I'm the youngest of five.

"Our first space for Tearing kitchen took over will well-known space. I'll put a donaldson road and And that's where it began. It was the restaurant that we converted at the time had another business and so we slip the office between the small whining purpose. We had and The catering business. I was still an originally when we started coming. I was still working or tessa chasing room manager there and then we thought business half legs. It was time to do it together. So that was the first sort of building block and step in that direction and once we started it and i really enjoyed the utility to make decisions in control. You know what we were bringing to our business. I really started to enjoy that part of it at having independence to take what you're passionate about and increased something from it. So so you were doing fulltime contessa and then you had the vino Reporter expert company senior and then at the same time you had just opened up correct correct so we have those businesses Together for a We close the business in two thousand fifteen okay And then votes. Our energy things started happening at the same time. We have opportunity to open up the cafe. It was time to change. Can we decided to surgeons on those suits. Because you know when a when i think of your of your story and now that. I know that you've mentioned that. You were managing safety manager. Contessa tessa and opening up your own business safety. I mean at least a lot of people that come through the valley. They're looking for that opportunity there like the one l. How do they get started in specially nap. I feel like. That's hope. I think i mean at least for my experience is really hard to join the wine industry in a have. I thought it had a really strong. Cv to back it up. But i feel that you know it also has to do with the fact that before when jessica you had been some day you worked somewhere else as well ray. You're yeah yes. So i did. You are jobs into my my off a small. stay with them. i. I remember husband on tim. Position at cake bread. Tell you this But But i wouldn't have happened when i was contested besides the catering business a lot of women relate to this and that is i had my second child so i had my son and i think the desire to have a little bit of independence. Would i was going to be more time in independence resists a lot of time running your business but still there's freedom you know. Today i can plan in a a function at the kids school or by need to lead them up. I do have that flexibility. Doesn't mean you're free in the evenings miami. You catch up on some work later but it is nice to be able to step away arm. Choose two nights trim to not miss some of the things that you know you. You have miss with your kids. So that was part of the drag. Not just you know able to row an idea of our own but to have flexibility with families with the catering business that was that was actually one of the biggest reasons why did catering business initially versus the restaurant. The restaurant you're their seventies. We advocate you know. Stop in maybe not take events for a certain period of time empty asia. Okay so take me back the time when you when you met your husband He's at emi grant sira will so Before i moved to napa.

Twenties had a working with microsoft and another it company allow employees different different industry but still do project coordinating in planning different events for the team. social events switch but i love to do allow opportunity to find restaurants rotations to the team or create an event or dinner and.

Apple App Store Changes Fail to Stem Push for Overhaul Bill

"Peace offerings and settlements between apple and developers won't stop congressional moves against app stores couple of weeks ago apple announced a proposed settlement with smaller developers. Perhaps the biggest concession offered by apple was the one that would let developers use communications such as email to share information about payment methods outside of their ios app. A few days later apple settled with the japanese government that settlement included a pledge to let reader apps such as net flex and spotify. And who knows. Maybe some that actually involve reading under terms of the settlement apple will let reader apps include an in napa linked to their website for users to either setup or managing account and sign up using a non app store. Payment method will be possible according to a piece from macrumors. Maybe they think it's not enough. Maybe they just wanna look tough.

Why is it so important. Special rice so not by is a collection to come together and work with kids with disabilities and usually therapists occupation campus speech language surface and and they have same caves if they started off in los angeles type of ace and the next finding every sale. We used to live in australia. And we went to censor and then we buy to orleans two years ago on so phone you can you hear me there. Okay better now yes So since we moved back to ireland. She's been to boston to not And a group of moments have come together irish small and we had pushed a proposal together to get enough. Let's come to ireland's and we're really lucky there komeini next year around this time next year and it's just an amazing opportunity for kids with special needs to have a different type of intervention. So what did fiona do with nap on. How long was she there so she went for three weeks. You do three weeks time. I need you treat four hours of therapy a day and it's kind of this different therapy it's called. Bmi dynamic movements remember the is for but they physios kind of gets you to Walk on blocks and they of Prompt reactions in your body. And it's just creates your neural pathways. Because you doing the same painting for three weeks And at the end of us. It's really grueling. Physically for the kids like compared to jiang the olympic training or something. It's very difficult But my dole share started walking december. And i i'm certain it's down to the to lots of therapy that we've done three not by what. What is what is always difference. What what is it that she's tells with c. C. has a condition called cd ko five. There's seven kids in ireland to have us. It's very rare And she has epilepsy. She has a tube to help prayer be feds. she's nonverbal She she has a lot of sleep. Disturbances bowel issues. So she's very complex And whatnot that does is they. Don't kind of. It's not one one box for everyone. They kind of look at your kids and go. You know how it would work. Really well for her is based and they work around each individual. So it's it's amazing spoke in other words absolutely. Yeah this you had to travel los angeles. Boston said said knee. So ideally we should have something like this beginning. Our state airfield bringing sharon sharon. I think your daughter also hannah you. She went to the napa center in l. a. And again how how did it affect hundred hundred helper morning Yes we went enough and nellie I used to hide experience and intensive mas before retiring feeding problems and stuff. So i write off the nas. I really school to me and when we went there in. La we we were masked by a massive billeting very much open space and stuff but it couldn't have been more body friendly. It couldn't have been more child. Let parity i feel when it was saying it was very individualized. The therapist their their knowledge and expertise is second to none and the race. Kathy do was chosen over. There is absolutely amazing. How did you I suppose like everything. At the moment of his true a facebook group that i was on through or their parents recommend this to the facebook groups and i was reading from them and then look after all enough away place. There will not instagram facebook group. If it's really spooked me. And i suppose the positivity and they was founded by moore who are tied to child right near joni incidents i. She wants the best for her fires and wants to her like every parents want to restore fluid potential lives their best place and they got east hostages. Ramos sanctuary to everything not say even though it is an international organization. So i didn't talk it says amos core zone so like that. It is literally stroke. Bespoke and shaped with the child in mind is it expensive charon I like the bows like campari for the price per hour. It's coming to a hundred and fifty five dollars which is empire but you play therapy as where It's expensive in this offense if you're paying for it. Oh what a fun tax unit was saying you kind of do three to four with the day by day. Three for three weeks worth. I suppose watch cooking from does three weeks in comparison. They're not to send to base of six to twelve months. Therapy of three weeks therapy timothy of the site of you definitely saw benefit. Yeah oh yes. We so nasty penetration hannah and also in my beeline subject parents. We came home. So empowered the knowledge. Or so. And i think is why i wish to find this lanier's no that we hide telly. Houses enough again was born into a home to tally. Has to have ongoing is silent on poor team were hop across the whereas on on the the. There's now is it a definite plan or proposal to get napa toward where reading okay. And they had posed by coming this year and then of course copay with the way of us but they've confirmed their dates for twenty twenty two So the combing in august next year for six weeks and they're bringing six therapists with them and They'll be to lots of three week intensive and each intensively take between twelve fifteen kids. So we're chance to guess where that there because tons of where would they be based when they come. Well that's part of what we're doing. He is at the moment It's between cork until then myself. Some starting in the cork am focus. We would love to bring them cork and also with not by whenever they've done these pop up intensive places usually if if they're impressed with the place they will set up a permanent to send the bear. So we're really. We're going to try and make this is. Is grace experience for those therapists and monitors and get them to bring not a to europe and have ireland's and hopefully carcass their base because it would make such a difference.

Two point two million californian signed a petition to recall this man and it is estimated that between twenty five percent. They've even thirty percent. Were independent and democrats voted him just two years earlier. You start with the famous meal that he had at the restaurant called the french laundry. I never heard of it. Until until i found out it was in napa valley and i thought it was one of the most elite restaurants in california is not i thought it was. The most elite restaurant in america is not one of the most elite restaurants in the world and wind. Tab alone was twelve thousand dollars being picking picking it up and it wasn't just that he was dining there while he was shutting down business elsewhere. He was dining with the very same medical professions. Who dropped who drafted the corona virus mandate. They were violating. They weren't totally distancing wearing masks and meanwhile he has his own kids in private education in school and he exempted his own winery from the mary a mandate he was imposing on everybody else. Now i was a small businessman. I ran a business for fourteen years. It was accessible. I sold it was still going after i sold. It didn't liquidated didn't go bankrupt. But i will tell you more. Nearly half of all small businesses in going bankrupt and those revive are often operating on very thin margins. How many lies. How many dreams. How many hopes that. He just dashed by shutting down this date in the most severe way than any other governor.

California Extends Vaccine Access to People With Disabilities

"Starting March. 15th younger Californian to have disabilities or severe underlying health conditions will be next in line for vaccinations against covert 19. State health officials say the plan will open access to vaccines to another 4 to 6 million people. Joining me now to talk about this is KQED science reporter Molly Peterson. And Molly. What health conditions is the state listing that will make people eligible for vaccinations. And do they have any idea how long it will take to get through this next group? Let's start with the health conditions. The state's new directive to providers lists cancer, chronic kidney disease, It's stage four or higher. Chronic lung disease Down syndrome, having a weakened immune condition from an organ transplant, sickle cell, some heart conditions, severe obesity and very high type two diabetes as The health conditions that will make people eligible for vaccinations and as for how long it will take to get this next group vaccinated literally. The state does not know in part because the states as it could only see supplies three weeks into the future with federal partners. So far, state and federal data show. There have been 5.5 Million doses given 7.9 million doses have been have arrived in the state. But we've had some hiccups with that Napa in Los Angeles this week paused first doses to make sure that they had enough second doses for everyone who had gotten the first dose earlier. Counties and their health officials also speak often about being on wait list to get more vaccine Now, Disability rights advocates have been pushing really hard for people with underlying conditions. To be moved. Moved up in line. How are they responding to this announcement? Well, some people say they are happy. Just go lame and talk to one of our KQED colleagues. She's with San Francisco Senior and Disability Action group. And she says Essentially the march 15th is too late and that countless people will die needlessly and will make it hard for people with disabilities who aren't on this list, and people who don't have regular medical care to access the vaccine. I should say they don't know exactly how many people there. Adding 4 to 6 Million people is the range and that's because some folks with disabilities or severe health conditions are already in groups, including job specified groups and age specified groups. That are already eligible. There are a lot of questions left to answer, like Will people be able to do this at mass vaccination sites or will verify and things that like a mass vaccination site?

Protesters Rally Across Myanmar, Defying Coup and Risking Crackdown

"We start today's program with the ongoing turbulence in myanmar. Massive crowds of protesters have taken to the streets as demonstrations continue against last week's coup in which the army detained elected leader. Angsana suci over the weekend me and my its largest protests in more than ten years. It's also reported that police in the capital have used water cannon on workers conducting nationwide strikes for more on this. We're joined now by professor penny green. Who's amendment expert and director of the international state crime initiative. A penny. good afternoon to you. Thanks for being with us. Just tell us first of all about your reaction to what we've seen and indeed heard about over the weekend Water cannon deployed these huge protests This is something quite different than we've seen for well more than a decade yes indeed. The last massive set of protest took place in two thousand and seven. And and i think it's. It's really quite remarkable. What's happening inside. Myanmar at the moment and the courage of the demonstrators is is really phenomenal. I think that many of these people especially the young have really effectively only known some kind of democracy albeit very fragile. I mean it was very very weak democracy but the freedom that came with after five decades of military rule is something that the people of do not want to let go of. I'm penny we'll talk. Maybe in a moment about what the military's reaction to this might be sort of medium-term in a second. But i did want to ask you about that point about the this as brickley democracy as you pointed out it is nevertheless it. Is you know thirteen. Fourteen years of that and so many people who are teenagers young people students will only have known that. Do you think that reflects. I don't know if it's a miscalculation by the military but it may be an underestimation of exactly how wedded to those notions. This this younger demographic all is it probably is a miscalculation. I think that the military scared basically very fearful of the power of the people of myanmar. They lost so badly there. They're usd pm. Military party lost extremely badly in the november twenty elections And as a result. I think Recognized in some senses that the writing perhaps was on the wall and the only way that they could shore up. The future of their their authority was to initiate a coup. I mean there are all sorts of other explanations for the kutu loudly relating to the the power and wealth of Commander in chief gentleman lie. But i do think that they have probably miscalculated But it's it's also true to say that the man my people. The burmese historically have risen up against the brutality and repression of military hunters in the past particularly nine hundred ninety eight and again in two thousand and seven even though they hadn't been tasting democracy in the recent past. So i think that there is that that there is that desire for freedom which will emerge. I'm presented itself in. These kinds of situations are well short term than the police have been very clear as as we mentioned you know that's been the deployment of water cannon In napa all ready and you know it's been presented as very much a choice to the protesters leave move on or face force potentially increasing force. Do we have any sense of the lengths to which the military and police authorities will go to in terms of escalating that force in terms of the potential for more violence on the streets. Well we look at history. We know that this military is capable of the most barbarous repression. We only have to look at the genocide hinge which took place in over the last over this infect period of so-called democracy But the worst of it was saying in two thousand seventeen when thousands were killed and eight. Hundred thousand were driven across the border into bangladesh. And if we could look back historically to two thousand to two thousand and seventeen to nineteen ninety eight. The military deployed Brutal force against all forms of demonstrators. So we know that that is on the cards. And they have issued a message via state media to the people of myanmar now to say that unless you abide by the law you have to expect that there will be A reaction and that reaction. The people of myemma know well. We'll be one of violence.

"When abe rosenthal is graduated from columbia university in two thousand nine. She entered the job market during a recession completing program in an ivy league. School was a big accomplishment for eva. Who originally from peru and says she wanted to make her dad proud while she was trying to pinpoint her next step. Abe and two friends took a road trip to napa california while on a trip. Eva expressed her frustration and disappointment on her career uncertainty. To one of the friends. Jim gen able to write down three things. She was passionate about on a napkin. Eva wrote traveling children and languages at the time she already lived in eight countries spread across four continents and spoke five languages. Got her thinking maybe she could start a business with these skills somehow after getting home from the trip eva created a google. Talk and brainstorm services. She could offer then researched how to fine tune them for example. She learned that it's extremely beneficial to get credited in order to be an interpreter in medicine. It's not enough to speak the language. Well the certification. At least in this case matters after figuring out what certification she needed avis set up a linked in premium account so that her profile would have more visibility and of course she needed a name on the same napkins us to write down favorite topics. Eva had also jotted down words. That described her hyper polyglot. Nomad poly-lingual influence to name a few looking back at that napkin. Two words stood out hyper and flint. Ab decided to combine the two to create hyper fluent. So after she narrow down the services she would offer including personalized one on one language courses cooking sessions in different languages translating and interpreting and more while she was getting hyper fluent services. Squared away able was offered a fellowship by the ministry of education of indonesia to study bahasa indonesia for a year even in her new role thousands of miles in twelve time zones away. Eva continued to focus on setting up a side business. She made business cards and bought a new camera to take professional photos on location while in indonesia. She made her first website. Which at the time was more of a block pricing structure dependent on what the service was and for how long a person needed it free tutoring. The price was fixed but if someone needed a series of manuals translated the price dependent on the number of words the target language the timeframe and sector. It's likewise for interpretation. The price dependent on the sector the distance to travel for the assignment and the duration. She also decided to price services differently in different countries in reflection of market realities. The first clients for hyper fluent came after she plays her profile in different teaching platforms such as university tutor dot com but like so many. New businesses are most successful marketing. Technique has been word of mouth. One of asia's prince spoke about hyper flew to an acquaintance. Who happened to be the personal assistant for an nba player. That basketball star became a client was also through connections that she landed her most significant gigs with the bank. Bloomberg and for some of the wealthiest families in new york city. She's also active on instagram her favorite online platform about that website. It's no longer just to block. A couple years ago she upgraded one with all the features she wanted. And it's now much more personalized scents. Beginning hyper fluent in two thousand. Eleven avis had about six hundred and fifty clients. She currently prophets around fifty thousand dollars a year from macedo also and yes. This is still aside us oil. Her full job is project manager. The international centers for precision oncology. Even with the busy job she plans to keep offering language services after the pandemic subsides. Yes i can't wait either. It's going to happen. She'll also began offering a one to two week. Immersion program in italy called mummy. And i go to sicily. This program will aim to teach italian two moms and their or daughters through immersing themselves in country says that some of our favorite memories have been through her business since she's learned four more languages worked and cooked with refugees in berlin and visited more than sixty five countries. All right i have a suggestion. Here is in a similar place. That able was a few years ago. If you happen to speak four or five languages only four or five right my justice. Don't try to do everything at once. Don't try to offer translation and interpretation and tutoring and cooking classes. It's great that it's been able to work for abe. And obviously she's been doing this a number of years now and she's found the perfect rhythm between her day job on her side hustle. But i think for a lot of people. You're actually going to be more successful in this field. If you're just doing one of those things maybe even for a specific target market like for example One of asia's client bases is wealthy families in new york city. You could say okay. I'm gonna do language tutoring for kids from well off families in this particular area where it could be something totally different but just picking something. I think is going to help a lot. So you're not just overwhelmed and trying to do it all also. I really loved the google doc method. You know when he got back from her california road trip. She made a google doc and brainstorm services she could operate using her language skills and from there she made various observations. Like oh i should get a certification to be medical interpreter and probably some other observations as well so just kind of scratching things out and making notes of your skills and what services. Those talents might lend themselves to can be very helpful.

How to Get a Good Night's Sleep

"You'll sleep isn't quite right harrison. Things i think might be helpful to just get things back on track and before we get into tips though i just wanted to say do you feel as though sleep is the first thing to go when we experienced any kind of stress for me. It's really good. And it's just an indicator that i have a few more taps open in my brain than i can adequately cope with and that means that my thoughts begin wearing at three o'clock in the morning or my quality of sleep over the course of an entire evening just isn't good enough and sometimes it can be just because i've got too much on my mind and this leads me nicely into one. So if you are waking up worrying and then it becomes impossible to switch off and go back to sleep or if you find it a struggle to get to sleep because you're thinking all the things a on your plate essentially then making a list of all of them making a list of everything that's on your mind before you go to bed might help. It's been proven. I've spoken to several sleep therapists and sleep. Experts said that just the act of making a list of all the things that you on your mind can take the magnitude out of these things that seem really big because you attach all the other things to it like. Oh i've got to my taxes for example. And if you don got to do. My taxes means speech my accountant. I get really stressed. When is mike has an all. Will he have time for me. All of those things actually making a less kind of gets rid of a lot of that chatter and just makes them feel much more doable and is also really good. The next morning right. That's my to do list. They were with me yesterday. They were my mind. I'm going to do something today to make sure that that's not worrying me tomorrow. And it's been proven that a few minutes of mindfulness can take the edge off and make it much much easier to fall asleep so if you get into bed you're white awake will now. What actually whether you use an up whether you use a prompt of some sort a youtube video just counting your breath and just slowing down your breathing. But if mindfulness whether it's guided or not can we really make that difference to just get in your mind and body out of that mode to. Yeah you know what yes sleep. The seem like a good idea but this is also one the idea of writing down your warriors the idea of organizing your worries into something that you can then work through methodically and logically. This is also what you can take a little bit of a run-up i wouldn't be doing it. I'm not talking about making a list bed but if you are lying awake thinking about paperwork finances or feel as though everything's calls nita's organized than actually some time in the day to do filing to file things properly to get on top of your admin or just create an organized environment where you know where everything is that can have a really positive. Knock on effect of softening those concerns when you're trying to get to sleep so okay. I know this might make me sound a bit weird. But if you're a long-time listener you'll be no stranger to that. But i leave my office night but only a my office being my second bedroom but i leave my every night but only once. I've made sure everything is tidy. So i my desk so i've got my record. I'm obviously recording right now. So all my recording equipment out of my wires everywhere. I make sure that then nicely neatly wound up and put back in the drawer where they are recording device back ninety degree angle on my desk and when i leave at the end of the evening i use my call brush to like clete to rake through the copy or vacuum the carpet and anything i've taken out or use during the day. I put it back to how. I would have it if i had guests coming over the next morning and mentally. It ends my working day really neatly but the payoff is the next day. I am always and i mean always delighted to what to set foot back in my office. It feels like oh this is this is a place. We're going to do really good work today. And i know i said you know. Make it presentable as if someone else's coming around to see it but i'm seeing it and it's important that i have that feeling and that genuinely when i wake up in the morning at i think goku can you office today. I'm actually excited to get into the office. So that has definitely been one of the things that i have started to incorporate in the last couple of years that makes all the difference. The second tip is this one might sound really obvious. but it's dope nap and maybe it sounds really obvious for me. Because i've been working from home for eight years and so i've learned the hard way but if you're working from home for the first time or maybe the third time if you're in the uk and you're on your third lockdown but if you now have been working from home for substantial amount of time since we went into various stages if restriction around the world then. It's definitely tempting to have a quick snooze when you normally pep yourself up with a coffee or sneaky chat with a colleague in the canteen or out for quick walk. Whatever but while we're living and working in the same space it's easy for entity to drop and to think fifty minutes won't hurt and oversee no one's gonna see no one's gonna see you have a quick nap who cares but unless you're a great napa and that awesome effective ways to make napping efficient and actually work for you but let's revisit those in another time when another episode then give napping a real mess so like i said i've been working from home now for nearly eight years and nothing is a very very easy to fall into trust me. I've done it so so many times. But now i make myself go outside and walk around the block. The truth is that my body saying oh we need to sleep or or wouldn't wouldn't not be nice but the truth is the thing that's going to serve me better. Brain and body is a stretch. Probably some fresh air or just moving around. Because i've been sitting at my desk for hours on end my my heart rates will be slowed down. And that's why my body's like we haven't done much moving. Let's go to sleep now. Moving around for a bit. Even if it's just in another room even a bit of yoga will actually support a better night's sleep or more likely likely give you a burst of energy so if you get that i that three o'clock low what you think all honestly i could just kick off my shoes now and i could just go and put my feet up on the so. I just have a quick nap. No i find. If i walk around the block i come back and where i think. I was almost ready to finish my day. I've definitely got another few hours in me. And it's extraordinary. How many good ideas pop into your head when you out for a walk or you're in a downward dog come on. Who else has been there where you at your desk all day even working team. I've got. I've got to have an idea for this or i've gotta to do this. And you're trying to troubleshoot something and you at your desk in your in work mode. It looks like you're working really hard. You get up. Have a cup of tea or take a walk around the block pops into your head. That's me clicking. By the way the idea pops into your head a little bit of movement london he makes the body feel good but can sometimes just be the little bit of the release. The brain needs in the way. That when you're thinking of a word and you think really hard and then the second you start thinking about it pops into your mouth that kind of thing. The third thing make a nest and i mean literally obviously but just make your bed the most comfortable place you spend time so that it's an environment that lends itself to sleep and this is really important if your sleep begins to go out of out of wack. This isn't just about having nice bedsheets about the lighting in the room the temperature. I know it might sound nuts. Especially right now because we're in the depths of winter but i from my window for about five to ten minutes before i get into bed because i love the air in the room being being a little bit chilly. So that when i'm under the covers i can feel nice and cozy and i usually fall asleep listening to a podcast on a very very low volume and i use an. I'm ask so. I've got myself sort of prompt in with Coin she pillows but you know how many close your own thing. But i have myself mostly packed in with some pillows. I put an moscow on. And i have a pug 'cause playing and i spritz my bed liberally with some really nice leap spray so i used the one from a remarked if i use the one from this. I loved the one from the sanctuary. I always put the podcast on auto turn off. Say that it'll finish the end of the episode that i'm listening to on it's rare. It's really read by more than ten minutes of a show so that really works for me so that is just an. I sent in the bed opening the window for five to ten minutes. So it's nice and cool making sure that my bet is really comfortable that i've light blocked out and i've just got something quiet and gentle to listen to. That will help me get to sleep

Why The Housing Market Is Booming In A Bad Economy

"Glenn kelman has been the ceo of redfin for fifteen years and he says for all that time people looking for a home always put this one thing as their top priority rich poor urban rural people buying homes always had this one big question. What about the commute. The commute to work. Yes it's the old real estate mantra right of time immemorial location location location and most of the time. Those locations were big cities. Were most of the jobs were concentrated and as a result buying home in these cities had become kind of blood sport. The new york real estate market the san francisco real estate market. These were insane markets where there were bidding wars with twenty thirty forty buyers glimpses smaller cities rural areas. Were just a different world. In fact over the last few years housing sales had been a little sluggish and there was a bunch of speculation. About why millennials weren't buying houses. And what was going on. Yeah that has changed. The national association of realtors announced that from may to june just as the covid nineteen crisis was bearing down on businesses and millions of people were losing their jobs pending home. Sales rose more than sixteen percent. That's the biggest monthly rise on record. That is crazy to me because you know like in every five americans is on unemployment like i. It's like blowing my mind that homeownership rates might also be going up or that there's kind of a real estate boom but it sounds like there is well. It's white collar professionals who are able to work from home in some ways. This is a sign that the economy is just officially split in two. You have people who are worried about unemployment benefits running out and at the same time you have other people who are able to work from home and thinking about the home all the time and that's where they want to spend their money. These are the people who are really benefiting now because even if the economy is going through a crisis for them it's not crisis just sale. Glenn says that for the people who were lucky enough to have kept their jobs. A huge number of them are working from home now. And that's changed everything the traffic to listings that are in towns with populations of less than fifty thousand people is up eighty seven percent in other words. It's no longer location location location. It's more like space space space. And glenn says he's also seeing a big migration of people out of big cities like new york l. a. chicago and san francisco to smaller cities. Like palm springs tucson austin grand rapids and nashville and tiny san francisco and new york apartments. That used to have forty people. In a bidding war people have been leaving those places in droves tanya zapata and her husband moved to san francisco about seven years ago at the time they got one of those overpriced apartments in san francisco but a couple of months ago tanya and her husband noticed that a lot of people were moving out of their high rise. I started seeing a lot of people moving out of the building and tiny and her husband started to think maybe they have the right idea and they started looking around on the internet and then one day my husband saw this house and not by which is in the middle of vineyard and and the house is so beautiful because you have been yards all around the house It has space with fruit trees and also Raised beds for for growing your own vegetables. So we were like this is amazing. Go to napa. The house was not cheap. In fact it was about twice the rent that they were paying in san francisco but it had more than three times. The amount of space also their parents could move in with them. They had this big yard and all this land for their daughter to run around. Glenn kelman ceo redfin. He says people are making tania's calculation every day now paying the same amount of money that they're paying city but getting way more space for example he is seeing a lot of requests for extra bedrooms for parents and grandparents and requests for extra rooms for offices and home gyms

"It's David again from cheap wine by the.com. The other wine review that we put on the cheap wine fiber.com website and I noticed lately though. I'm kind of going upscale. Everything is Bordeaux or Napa or Rushing River and well, I kind of did that again? Let me grab the bottle and see what we got here. It's it's not expensive. But it it's Mom Napa Brut Prestige and sparkling wine from Champagne house in France, but they've been in Napa since the seventies so it's fifty years. It's been a long time. It's half half 45% Chardonnay 45% Pinot Noir and the rest is a little bit of a mix of you know, greed. It's just you know, Greenfield a green show your same thing. And what was the other one, you know, what a you know, what is the the hidden grape & in Champaign? It's in all the champagne. You don't know it. So there you go, and it's from Napa and it's one of the kind of weird things because this is a Napa sparkling wine and not a French champagne. Normally when you drink Snapple why that's oh it's Napa except when champagne and then it's oh, it's Napa off cuz it's not you. Hey, we're gonna go get into that because I think that's wrong. So what we have here is like I said, it's a little bit of a dead. Grapes that are approved of champagne right here is a couple of other groups really get used aren't here but it's got the main ones they use 45 different growers in Nampa all day from parts for the line and that's really typical. They make champagne. I know one of the leading Champagnes, you know, the uses a hundred different Growers to Champaign most champagne house and then champagne don't really have much Vineyard Holdings. They they contract long-term contracts for all other groups. And you know, that's how they do it. That's how they're doing it. That's how I am doing it here. I know it's like they've been the emphasis 1970 and they've been in Champaign since like 1827 or something. So these are people know what they're doing. They brought them know how to California even though like most of the American sparkling wine bubbly houses the schramsberg Gloria Ferrer Iron Horse are Sonoma. I guess there's some up in age, you know, they bring their expertise to Napa and this is a year and half second fermentation year and half the first fermentation is in mosul stainless steel and then they put some of it in French Oak barrels to give it that kind of thing going that they blend in. I mean the other surprise champagne house all Out their style ahm how Styles there's the first fermentation for the most part was where all the tricks are. There's just there the little bit of folk a little bit of stainless steel and all the other things had picked their drapes and all that are all in there. So you're getting a real bump style especially after fifty years and now but I mean, they they've come to get their own state of Mississippi cuz in my hand here, I mean, they probably get me a maid came with the French style. They probably created some Napa style go along with it. And here's what I have to say. Very expensive champagnes are Sublime. They're just crazy of every you ever get to drink it. But which I do every once awhile, you know, sometimes our ten years in bottle. I mean and they're so the spinach ten years needs in the bottle and they have all these exotic production techniques and these things are crazy expensive and just crazy delicious, but they're regular ones are kind of reachable this thing. I found out I think Seventeen or eighteen dollars Napa Brut Prestige Brutus, not too sweet. You are not miss out from Champagne. I mean in a blind tasting most people unless there's champagne had know these things. Most people wouldn't know the difference and this is Anna like half the price unless off. I mean, they'll be cheaper come December when all the champagne zor sa land they'd probably make after sales but you know regular time $18 for what is an excellent choice. It's delicious. It's balance is pretty good at this you wouldn't know the difference. So just because it doesn't have champagne or label has Napa who how bad could it be that has Napa on the label. It can't be and this is a really delicious sparkling wine. I'm going to turn this thing off and finish the battle. So.

Did this research started making wine. Learn about the wind business. Everything from growing grapes and making wine to understanding how the distribution you should network works in wine business this winery had turned into a warehouse so the property and converted into a winery where we could learn and so had that property Pity for about thirteen years. We grew up from about four hundred and fifty cases to about forty. Five thousand cases. Made every mistake known to marry but We learned a lot. We bought fruit from over sixty different growers probably closer to eighty different growers over that period of time. And so we really got to understand. The the lands ends of the Napa Valley's what about the land in Western hills of OAKVILLE. Drew you to it. The best way to the Napa Valley was on the west side of the valley. What they call the bench lands oakville rather for the bit so I wanted to be as close to there but the most valuable vineyards in the world were always in the hills especially with the the most amount of research over the longest period time well over a thousand years is in Burgundy and you'll find the ground crews the finest vineyards are on the slopes not down floor the Bali or the top of the hill? But what I think of as a tenderloin so that was the kind of land. I wanted to own land like that would have been the Western hills but they were all in forest and woodland so I was able to acquire a piece of land I forty acres and from there began to grow and at the time that you acquired headland. You had a hunch but you didn't really know that it was able to produce so I kind of wanted no. He didn't so tried to hire the people that knew more about these things and certainly more than I did at that time. So we acquired that land cleared the land brought into roads brought in the infrastructure planted. The vineyards began making wine that was in nineteen eighty four..

I was not happy I remember my priority list changed that day making family number one and career number three guests. What number two is my life aspirations? I promise it took to like all it will be hard and you will need some time to adjust to the new but you will be worth it tip number three time to re brand new. I love this. You need to find you again. You need to find what drives you. What motivates you? What keeps you up at night and makes you feel alive. There's a famous saying by Mark Twain. To most important days in your life are the day you're born and the day you found out. Why and that saying stroke me the first time I heard it. I'm like Oh my God. This is so true. I remember my life coach. Who passed away two months before we moved to Napa Valley told me Wendy leave a legacy behind that people will remember you by and Wendy. I know how much you love corporate world and to Change Eli Bulbs. He would joke about how much I love General. Electric but Wendy. There is more to Wendy. That others don't know show them train them. The moment you get your passions into action is when you who feel alive. Do you know what that is yet? Do you know what it is to feel alive. I had no clue at that. Time had no clue what day was telling me I was thinking yes. Have my own business. That's what I've always wanted but David taught me so much. He was my trainer for sixteen years. Someone knew how it felt on a daily basis. When they say trainer he was my workout partner but most importantly my life coach. Gosh I miss it so much so when I was rebranding I keep thinking back to the conversation. I had with David. Why light me up. What makes me smile I know is giving back to the community but then I was like I just moved to Napa. I haven't I don't know any one hundred even know about wine. So that's when I started I send up to wine classes. I started reading a ton of a wine and empowerment and then one day having a conversation with my bff. She said why. Don't we open our own media digital company to empower a Latino Community and Bingo? This was what I had been looking for to build a platform where I can inspire women to follow their dreams and make them a reality so we decided to work together for about two years building our media platform and during those two years. I learned so so so much I didn't even know about blogging guys or you to ring or writing. I didn't know anything or even had to podcast. I'm a horrible writer.

How you feel the day you decided to pursue your dreams. Are you like me that you devoted all your energy love and loyalty to your corporate career? This was me exactly. I'M NOT JOKING.

You have dedicated nights and weekends and ask yourself. What else can you be doing? Well don't worry you're not alone. That was me. I was so loyal to the companies. I work for that. I lost myself the string about ever since I was a little girl. I've been wanting to own my business. I didn't know what that would be. I just knew I wanted to be my own C. E. O. I knew I had to get trained and gain experience. Learn how to be cultural and need a business. This was the reason I decided to work for big corporations. I also knew I loved to help others grow. This just comes very natural to me.
