"Reagan, eldest son of Ronald Reagan, and now chairman and president of the Reagan legacy foundation. Mike, I got to tell you a funny story, and that is I was, you know, I had sort of a standard speech, which I gave after I wrote my book on your dad. And I was invited by the Reagan library to give a speech and Nancy Reagan, your stepmom was in the audience. But because I was giving my standard speech and in the Q&A, somebody asked me, they said something like, you know, it was Nancy, the power behind the throne was she the one telling Reagan what to do, and I used a line admin using on campus that worked really well, but I forgot that Nancy was in the audience and I said, well, I think that I think that Ronnie's hero was Calvin Coolidge, and Nancy's was Calvin Klein. You know? And the audience of course roared and then I looked down and I see Nancy Reagan looking up at me and I couldn't tell from her expression if she thought it was amusing or not, but I slowed a slight chill of terror went down my spine. When I did that, but that was, I still remember that very vividly because of how odd it was. She might have thought Calvin Klein was a downgrade. Oh yeah, that's right. She would look at you. That way. But no, you know, that was a great reader of history. I tell kids to come to young Americans foundation all the time. I say readers are leaders and Ronald Reagan if anything was a great reader of history, the books in his library, he actually read those books more than one time. And that's important because we don't read that much anymore. We watch the news we watch this, we watch that, but we don't read and readers are in fact leaders. You know, a story about my dad and again talking about him and World War II, great generation. You know that he was legally blind. He was one of the first ones to wear contact lenses. And he wanted to be in the army. He was in the cavalry, wanting to be in the army. But he knew he couldn't pass the eye exam. So we went and he memorized the eye exam. And when he went to go for his test, and they said, close your right eye or left eye, read line three. He had it memorized. Really? He couldn't see it. Couldn't see it, but he memorized, and that's how he got into the army, retired as a captain doing 300 films for the military during the World War II. You know, interestingly, over the years, I think the intellectual respect for Reagan has increased. I remember the historian Doug Brinkley who had written the book about Jimmy Carter. And he had a rather dismissive view of Reagan, and I told him, I said, listen, why don't you go over to the Reagan library or the ranch, go pick up the books off the shelf, Reagan's own books and look inside them, you'll see Reagan's own markings in there and then go read the letters of Reagan and so Doug did that to his great credit. And I think wrote the important book the Reagan diaries which I think coming from a liberal rice university helped help the intellectual class to see that Reagan was no dummy even though a lot of people had portrayed him as such. Well, absolutely true. Just read him. All you have to do is read them and you will really truly understand him. And that's why I think it's important for me to do the things that I do with the Reagan legacy foundation. The scholarship program we have for the kids on the USS Ronald Reagan that we've been doing since the early 2000s when she was commissioned and what have you and the brick project we have at saint Mary gleason Normandy France where people can go online to walk away to victory dot com and purchase a brick in the name of a loved one who served the European theater during the Second World War. And see it placed in the ground at saint Mary gleason, which is the first town free by America on V day. If you saw Saving Private Ryan, that's where all the paratroopers are going. If you saw the longest day, Red Buttons is hanging from the church steeple in the center of saint Mary glees. And so we've been doing that now for about the past 5, 6, 7 years with this brick project. And it's amazing to see these 99 and hundred year old men who bailed out of airplanes at 17 years old. Go to saint Mary and look down and see a brick, you know, with their name on it. And we've been doing that. And that's why I try and help carry the legacy of my father for what he did at point the hot with that speech at point to Hawkins and carry it forward because he has such a heart for those who save the world. When Margaret Thatcher was asked about your dad's legacy, she said he won the Cold War without firing a shot. What I find interesting about Reagan was that he was very hawkish toward the Soviet Union in the first term. This was the term of the evil empire speech, the arms build up the MX missiles, strategic missile defense, but in the second term, it's almost like your dad pivoted and began to work with Gorbachev, whom he recognized had something different about him, and I'm wondering if in thinking about all that, you would say of your dad that he distrusted, he saw evil in the empire, but he was also able to be optimistic about the human spirit. And so he had the sense that Gorbachev was capable of steering that evil ship if you will in a more in a better direction. What explains your dad's pivot from the first term to the second term? It looks to me in retrospect he was right in the vote times around, but many conservatives liked him in the first term and then they're like, he's too soft on Gorbachev, but your dad and only your dad was right the whole way through. He was right the whole way through, but he knew that Gorbachev was the only way to finish the Cold War and end it. And he knew his term was coming to an end also. If I have time for a real quick story, 1976, my dad loses the nomination. I'm with my dad in the upper room of a hotel that night. I say, why are you even running for this position? He said Michael for so long I've watched American presidents sit down with secretary general of the Soviet Union. And every time we sit down with them, they ask us to give up something to get along with them. He says, I wanted to be the first president to sit down with the secretary general. I was going to let him pick the table, the cherries and the place because Michael that's how they do those things at that level. And as he was telling me what it was, I was going to have to give up to get along with them. I was going to get up from my chair and walk around the other side of the table, lean over and whisper in his ear. Net. I want to be the first president to say net to a secretary general of Soviet Union to this ten years later. Now remember, Nancy and not told him he was going to run a 1980 yet, all right? So ten years later in wreck of it. He is there. And Macau Gorbachev, they're designed salt. Mikhail Gorbachev says you have to give up SDI or Star Wars. We've all seen the photograph of my dad turning away. What did my dad say? Yet, I was the only one on the plans to do what the answer was going to be. And a year later, Macau Gorbachev came to Washington and signed that agreement..

For all of this, including the walkway to Victory project doesn't have to do with the fact that President Reagan made that historic visit to Normandy. I think that has something to do with it. But the foundation started with scholarship to the kids on the USS Ronald Reagan and evolved to where we honor my father in Berlin at the Checkpoint Charlie Museum. Black in the ground of the Brandenburg Gate, where he gave the iconic speech tear down this wall so we could have done this around the globe. And I was invited to raise the American flag at the American cemetery of normally a few years ago. And went there and visit. Of course, all of Normandy. What'd really struck by ST Mary glazed in the first town pre buy America. I saw the longest day of the mayor with the church people and all that.

"It's taken years for me to start thinking about specialization. I think for what it really is. Which is it's a beachhead in a lever. So a beachhead in that you pick a place where you can actually have impact and if you're businesses in a pretty good status quo. That's not going to sound very appealing. But if you're if you're experience of your businesses it's hard to get attention for what you do. It's hard to get clients in the right sort of power dynamic where they see you as having something they need or can't live without Or if it's just hard to like realize the promise of digital marketing which is getting attention on the internet for your work. then you're a lot more receptive to the idea of bike. The value of a beachhead. Because you can sort of like. I don't know i think most people have some sort of fuzzy ideas omaha beach invasion and allied forces picking a beachhead around normandy france and and concentrating this immense amount of firepower on a very small area in order to break through enemy defenses. So that idea. I think is resonated enough that we can start to imagine what that looks like for us and i mean just that that first time that you do something that looks like creating a beachhead and someone on the internet cares someone that you don't know who isn't predisposed to like you and you know Be happy to support what you're doing like a stranger i think that's that pivotal moment and From that you start to approach everything differently. So i think you know thinking in terms of beachheads and minimum. Viable markets minimum viable everything. It's a really transformational change. So i would argue for specialization. Both on the basis of can help you clients that you wouldn't have access to And also on the basis of i think it it kind of changes how you think about making progress in your business and you start to think of not just a specialization beachhead but okay how can i do other things..

"You've probably seen footage of d day or perhaps you've seen a reenactment of the landings and a movie like saving private ryan on one incredible day. Tens of thousands of soldiers arrived at the beaches of normandy france to establish a toehold for the allies in europe. Of course the goal wasn't just to take some beaches or even normandy itself. The goal was retaking the entire continent of europe. To this extent once the toehold was established the hard part started. Hundreds of thousands of people and millions of tons of supplies had to be shuttled into continental europe through a very small gap. One of the first things that was done after the landings was the creation of temporary harbors off of gold and omaha beaches. these were portable harbours called mulberry harbours. There were only intended to be used until the allies could capture major french ports and repair them from damage done by the germans as temporary harbors were built. It led to an almost non-stop unloading of supplies vehicles equipment and personnel. In the first few weeks after landing things were going slower than anticipated the hedgerows of normandy made advancement very slow. Having personally rented a car and driven around normandy. I totally understand how difficult it was to fight in hedgerows. however once they broke through the hedgerows the fortunes of the allies suddenly changed. They went from being behind schedule to being ahead of schedule. They managed to break out and race towards perez much faster than expected as the german defences collapsed. While this was obviously a good thing. It did cause problems getting supplies to the front line. Food fuel ammunition medical supplies and numerous other miscellaneous things were needed to keep the advanced moving. Many units had to limit their advance not because of enemy resistance but because of a lack of fuel and supplies. If you ever watched the movie patent which is a great movie by the way there's a scene where the advancing allies had to stop. Because they ran out of gas. One problem was that the allies had previously bombed french railroad lines to prevent the germans from resupplying their troops. That meant that when they took over the same railroad lines. They had to be repaired. Which would take weeks or months. The twenty-eight allied divisions in france consumed about twenty one thousand tons of supplies per day. Each day they got further and further away from the coast and delivering. Those supplies became more difficult. Winning the war was becoming increasingly dependent on getting supplies to front line units. The allied command needed to do something quick to solve the transportation problem. The solution after a thirty six hour brainstorming session was the creation of the red ball. Express a red ball was a symbol used for trains carrying perishable goods which needed to be given preference. It was first used in the santa fe railroad in the late nineteenth century. The project was led by brigadier general. Ewart g plank. Who is known as little pattern. He immediately went into action..
