Secrets Of A Grand Prix Photographer, Bahrain Testing Day 2
"To go with today's action i'm joined by grand prix alex kalinowka and a special guest photography. Extraordinaire stephen t. To get his perspective from the front line. Stephen thank you so much for joining us today. it's been a very busy couple of days and bahrain How is the great nice to be here. Thank you for inviting me. Yeah it's been been okay at as you said. The weather was was fit. Weirder than we expected. I think everyone thought we were gonna come here. Very benign and a ball. They were able to really halt yesterday. And and we have to sandstorms but amazingly I think the amazing thing was caused the often is still managed to get to the time that they did a landau for about a day. That saying how amazed there was that you manage to get such a such a quick time in and he said that he thinks the because the track is Has got such a. It's a very rough track very wraps up. He seems to think that maybe the oldest a very very fine sand that was being blown around. What's going into the cracks and wasn't really effective in sumatra. 'cause they said it looks a lot worse. The cheap felt basically. So that's quite interesting. So how was that from your perspective because obviously it was very very sandy on friday. A love wins. And when you get bahrain as well you have to deal with the conditions of going from light to dark as a photographer. How does that change things. Foyer day these tests have been quite long. There's actually quite nice to have the dnc the otherwise everything will be a little bit one dimensional. You'd be reasonably nice light in the morning. He's got reasonably life nights. Layoffs at all or you should But it's nice. It's nice to have the opportunities to the lives as well. I'm here with them choosing mclaren so we're only allowed to even be on track or in team garage if you work and they see what folded at one team so we could allow full overseeing the garage then all out and circuit two very separate team says guys are on track. Spend the whole weekend on track guys in the in the cowards and spend the whole weekend in that garage is but so so it. It's quite nice to have to the you know the the change of life because as soon as the lights come on you can stop doing different things etcetera so It otherwise it would be very very long day on a bit. One dimensional when you set up for the weekends. You and the other talkers. Guts bahrain for the weekend diesel to come together make list of like the shots you want to get or is it very much A little bit more fluid than that shopping list is kind of creative. I in a client whether it be working might multiple dot com or ulcers. Full repay racing. We were We we put them yesterday. They they went suppress Last night basically. So they needed. They needed five parades and And pictures of every car. The team sponsors. We were all have big shopping list of stuff they need so it's very much driven by but yet you're absolutely right we do. It's around a on a breakdown. Who can do an five of the days. The best time to get the shot get shot there is a lot of discussion about basically and obviously in preseason testing updates as well which is quite important factor for editorially and i guess for you guys this photographer how do you kind of with that kind of aspects of preseason testing as well. What about talk of his mom. He's tossed with looking for that stuff and shoots just basically shoots stuff on circuit tries to get angles but my show walser. What the what. The teams are doing differently. So that's that's that's very much role this year because there's no active free actress to the line. I know access to other people's got the one working working working in it's it's very sham an od on the oneal and tracks Soup scenario about. He's been with this gopher nisa kind of see stuff so it's kind of interesting to hear it from especially within the time currently in but you know you've been you've been at the track stephen and you've been watching things happens. There been anything that's kind of caught your eye for the past couple of days. I mean just the number of laps they've been doing is one thing. Obviously we all know the calls on all the other they. They social differences to the merrill basically the same as last year. So somebody's been doing testing for chip more years than cats. Cats are remember One of the features of testing nor in especially you know going back a few years was the cause would sometimes do you know first day of testing four or five laps and spend the rest of the time in the couch being being get the updates in an engineer stunning scratching their heads over a various positive. But they've just been they've been pretty pretty now and they just been going round and round around so i think good other than that frustration for us i suppose The the there's been a lot flow is on the cars and And that's not something that Clients we go out to us basically because that gives away lots of secrets. So those those those locks have to be Speeches copy used from the laps. That's happening on and then hopefully they've been using the the arrow gates as well and a lot so That this There's been quite a lot of. Let's be quite a lot of that going on the last two days especially in the
How To Get Testimonials That Sell
"Everybody knows. They need to have testimony on their website on their sales pages but they don't really know how to get them and when they do they're not really sure if these system will actually help sell the products and services now this is especially true for those who are starting a brand new business or a new to business. they're like i don't have any experience. How do i get testimony l. We'll we'll talk about that later in the episode but first let's talk about getting testimonials from current clients from current customers. And how do you make sure that the craft testimonial that works for your business that sells your products and services first of all when people think about asking about testimonials they think about calling people emailing people and ask them. Hey can you tell me about your experience or give me testimonial and the thought of this makes them feel like huddle really wanna do this. This is a lot of work You know the confrontation all that kinda stuff. This is why i believe that. If you're going to collect testimonials you have to automate it. You have to the other thing you have to do is that you have to incentivize people to do something for you okay. This is just how the world works people work in incentives. There's nothing wrong with compensating and rewarding people for making an effort so first. Let's talk about the automation part. You need to automate the system. For example you can send an automated email with email marketing provider when someone becomes a customer after a certain period of time so wants to become a customer. Wait thirty days. And then send them an automatic email asking them for a testimonial some people like to ask for to simone deals. That are in some like video testimonials. We'll get into all that in a moment but right now you need to put this into place. You can do this in about five minutes. Okay maybe like fifteen or twenty minutes. Let's be realistic. But you can set up an automatic email that people get when they become accustomed after thirty days so after the bought something from you or you know used your service thirty days later they get this email it says hey hope you enjoyed the product of hope. You loved the experience. We always liked to feature our wonderful customers on our website. We would love to future you and your business or you and what you do alongside testimonial and you could just be honest with. Hey this is going to be easy. Don't worry and you're gonna tell them how to create testimony because most people don't really know how to do it or not really sure what the say They're kind of thinking. What should i write. What should i say out of our craft this so you're gonna make it easy for them. You could just say straight up. You can reply to this email with the system. Oneal answers these four questions. You can do it on your phone with a video or you can just writing in texts now by doing this. You're just telling them what you would like to be included in the testimonial the actual answers that are going to give you. But you're just guiding them so that they know what to right so the first thing you're gonna say tell me a little bit about yourself your business what you do whatever it is you know you wanna make sure that other people at watch it. S a monica. Identify who this person is. Okay this person's in this kind of business Okay i get it there. The ceo or maybe the head of marketing gives some context to the testimony. And that's an easy softball question. They can answer. I'm so and so. And i do so and so in this company or if you don't serve businesses you serve like customers and users could just say. Hey my name is so. And so. And i'm from Dallas texas the next question. You want them to answer. Is what was your life before my product before experiencing my service to paint the before picture so get them to answer that question. The next question the third question is what was your life. After consuming my product using our service is is important because you want to show the transition the result of using your product or service. This is a really want to know what their life was before what life is after and it shows. The transition shows the got on investment. And then lastly you ask them what their favorite thing is about your product or service and this is going to allow them to highlight your unique selling proposition. It might be your customer service. It might be ease of use. You might be the style. The design might be the price. The point here is that they're going to highlight something that is going to resonate with your potential buyer. When they read it or watch that video

Can I Buy a Motorcycle After My Girlfriend Dumped Me?
"Matt is in Washington DC I matt, welcome to the show. David asked thanks so much taking my call. Really appreciate it. Sure. What's up? Hey question. So I don't know if I'm over thinking this or but some twenty five years old and I just moved to DC, it'd be closer to my girlfriend and we broke up. and. So I'm thinking about buying a motorcycle for about five grand I don't know if I can afford it or not. I make a hundred and twenty grand a year. I've got about one hundred and fifty grand cash just in the bank, and I've got another hundred grand just sitting in fifty grand in single socks and their fifty grand four one K. you're kidding they do you got all of that in Holland us about a five thousand purchase. What's really going on six thousand I. Say it again sorry said what's really going on here how much is the motorcycle five thousand dollars While put out one hundred and forty, six, thousand dollars in debt. We'll write a check and pay all that off, and then we'll have a discussion about a motorcycle. And then by the bike yeah. I I don't I to investment properties I I rent where I live and twenty four grand on a car. But I don't know if I'm over thinking or not. But I guess if you know I don't you're saying maybe I am overthinking one percent of your life where he's is a five thousand dollar motorcycle ninety, nine percent of your life where he was one, hundred, forty, six, thousand dollars in debt. Yeah. Write a check and pay off your debt go by the motorcycle. Are you buying a motorcycle grieving over the girlfriend? Yeah. A little bit. Yeah. I want to do. I thought my weekends would be with her and now I'm out together. So I just WANNA go out and make friends and just kind of have stuff to do you know you can make friends without a motorcycle. Batman. Why why do you need a motorcycle make friends? The only down the only negative part about the motorcycles number one, the debts and number two it sounds like it might be some grief spending grieving over the relationship and the not that it's because it's not gonNA, kill you financial. You can afford to buy the bike. You can afford to buy the bike and set fire to it in the driveway and not worry about it wouldn't. It's not GonNa kill you financially but what you can't afford is to get into a situation where you react to. bad feelings in your life by spending. Yes you can't. You can't put that group in your brain that that group will destroy you long-term definitely will definitely will an and hear me clearly ma'am. When you pay off this debt I wanted to go ahead and get your emergency fund backup because I gotTa give it to you to have that kind of money at this age. That's great. You just doing a little bit backwards from what we teach you know. So go ahead and pause all your investments right now because I want to go ahead and get out of debt and then makes you get your three to six months out enough to. Do that he's probably just needs to allocators couple hundred grand if I understood right well as one hundred and fifty thousand in a savings in one, hundred, thousand investments no show you some of both it lets us all the savings. Yes. Hundred Forty six, thousand year paid off four thousand dollars, right? Okay. Pull some out of investments and make sure it's set aside an emergency fund can't him by the bike coke right and you get all three done. Then you've got your first three baby steps, we call them in place mat but just just search your own soul and look in the mirror and go dude is this just I'm just grief spending here. and that's not something you want to get into as a long term thing that every time I feel bad I spend every time I feel bad eat. Those kinds of. This is why we teach don't move until you are married. Don't make a life changing move because he said, he moved to this place for his girlfriend. I mean that's a different subject. We Dave Ramsey show so. Anthony Oneal show whatever? So I'll go with me. You're saying don't chase girls and boys around the country. And not unless you not unless you are married why move to the hardcore why move in with the person you are hardcore Dave Kinda move on I'm not saying on that. Yeah. But I mean chasing somebody you know moving to the city with the person versus. Moving in. Not Moving in. So you into the City House Oh. Yes. See I still I'm St-. If my daughter came home and said I'm moving to another city so I can be closer to my boyfriend I will have a problem with that. Yeah. I mean, it's not wrong. I'm just saying. You're up and ruining your whole life for the possibility of this thing to workout. I think I'd want some circumstances listed out around that before I would make that call. Okay. If it sounded like immature and flighty like she was being used up or manipulated definitely out if she's a strong woman, make her own calls. That's a different issue.
Will treating poverty reshape a childs brain?
"What does it mean to grow up for that sounded like a philosophical question? I didn't mean it that way. It's a real. How does a child's life change when they spend their formative years never having enough money living below the poverty line in some cases their family barely making it paycheck to paycheck? What don't those kids do because of that? What hurdles as a place in their path? How does it affect them? Down the road does the impact of poverty literally alter their brains. And if that's the case how can we change that a simple yep. Profound experiment aims to answer that question and perhaps even offer a controversial but effective cure for the damage. That poverty does to a child. What is that cure? While what do you think the cure for poverty is MHM Jordan Heath. Rawlings this is the big story. Shannon proud foot is a writer at Maclean's one of our favorite guests. Hope Shanna I don't either. Why don't you start by kind of level setting for us and in terms of research that has been done? What do we know about children who grow up in poverty? Okay okay so what has been known for years in all kinds of dimensions. Is that kids who grew up in poverty struggle across sort of staunching array of things. You know they tend to be physically smaller smaller. They tend to get sick more often. But for the purposes of this study the ones were most interested in are there's all kinds of of cognitive academic disadvantages. They have so that we know. Oh in very broad global ways. That kids who grew up in poverty tend to do worse in school than kids. Who Grow up more well off They have lower graduation rates. Their grades aren't as good. They have have less likelihood of going on to post secondary. But what was not known until sort of astonishingly recently is why I kinda Kinda came to think of the analogy as as you. You know we knew that that kids who grew up poor would kind of emerge from the woods when they finished childhood different point than richer kids but nobody had thought to look at the path of how they got there. Because there's different ways to have poor academic outcomes right which of their skills were lagging. What was what was going on there? And so one of the principal investigators on this new new study that I've written about Kimberly Noble who works at Columbia University. Her huge splash. She made early in her career. She's a neuroscientist was looking added. Exactly why it is. That kids who grow up poor tend to do more poorly in school and and and cognitively I'm so sh- she sort of unpacked the specific skills the specific regions of the brain the the wise in house of how poverty affects how kids process information and achieve academically later in their lives. And what does she learn so the big takeaway is that Kids who grew up poor tend to lag in language skills like reading and vocabulary and also in sort of what we might think of self restraint skill so the ability to ignore distractions to concentrate working memory that kind of stuff and then subsequently Noble Co authored authored. A big paper in two thousand fifteen. That made a huge splash again. In this area of academic research where they scan the brains of just over a thousand kids and teens and the average sort of the size of their brains they were looking at primarily. What's called the corneal surface area? So this is the the outer wrinkly part of the brain. It does a lot of the heavy lifting cognitively early and when they sort of correlated different different aspects of these kids profiles the one thing they found that was consistently associated with the size as of the coral surface area on the brain was family income so that raises all kinds of interesting questions about what's going on there and not immediately makes the leap to me. It's so compelling because it makes the leap from okay. There are different skills or different strengths. That kids were better off. You know have that kids who are poor. Don't but it's physically. We possibly reshaping their brains or at least associated with a different shape and size to their brains which is quite profound. It's something that you would just never expect to see proven. You might see the results of it but to prove that correlation is quite startling right and so using the word correlation Asian here is important because what Nobles Research and other people who've been working in this area consistently over the last couple of decades has shown is that we know that poverty is associated with all all these negative outcomes. That's correlation what nobody has been able to show is causation. Has What you could do is pull that apart and say okay but is it really. The fact that these kids are poorer that their brains are smaller. They have a harder time with these skills or is it that poor families are more likely to be in a single parent situation or have substance abuse or live in neighborhoods. That are kind of scary very like you just can't and scientifically say that it's the poverty that's causing this. You can only say that the poverty sort of shows us that this is occurring. So that's where this is new unbelievably ambitious but also incredibly simple and elegant study comes in that started about a year ago it will be ongoing for the next several years before we talk about that. Study because we're GONNA spend a lot of time on that. You mentioned that we tend to think and think of and treat the various disadvantageous effects of poverty offers. You know the the school skills that these kids can struggle within. What have we traditionally done to help them? When when those difficulties manifest yes there's sort of different steps along on the way where you could intervene if you start to notice that a child in grade one is struggling in school? And you know. They come from a disadvantaged family background where there's all kinds of ways you can kick in tutoring. You can have them go to special classes for extra support. You can make sure that there's an individual learning plan in place but those things tend to be a really ambitious that costs a lot of money either very time intensive and they happen quite late in the process because research shows that kids you know from from the age of two or even earlier you can already see the effects of poverty so if you're not able to identify the kind of downstream effects the symptoms if you will until they're in school and then try to sort of intervene and turn back the clock. Obviously that's a much much more difficult proposition. If you think about kids growing up in poverty have certain life experiences that appear to affect their brains in certain ways that then affects their learning potential potential. Well depending on where you intervene in that sort of stream of cascading effects it might be a bit easier. What if you could inoculate the kids against that whole all domino effect starting in the first place? It's almost like rather than intervening after someone has fallen ill with the disease in his experiencing symptoms. Would if you gave them a vaccine that prevented I'm from ever getting the disease in the first place. Now I'm certainly. This is just a creative analogy. I'm using calling poverty or its effects a disease but it sort of suggests that if the study study is born out there may be a more elegant more efficient possibly even simpler more effective way to kind of intervene earlier in the process before or the negative effects of already kicked in. And then you're trying to undo them so explain the study now and what it does. What is I guess it's called babies first years. Yeah babies first year so it's hugely ambitious. Seventeen million dollars in public and private funding very heavy hitting academic experts from across the US primarily so they're six principal investigators instigators who are sort of the top in their field at different institutions in different areas of expertise you have neuroscience economics sociology education. Things like that at what they did is they went to Maternity wards in four cities so they picked out New Orleans. Minneapolis Saint Paul New York City and Omaha and they deliberately picked cities cities where they would get kind of a nice cross range of rural versus urban different demographic make-up's and they recruited one thousand mothers within days of having their babies so they recruited created the right from the hospital to enroll in this study and there is effectively again because they're trying to establish causation. There's effectively a placebo group or control group and a treatment group and so all of the MOMS who are enrolled in the study will receive a debit card and every month money will be loaded onto that debit card. So sixty percent of the MOMS will receive. What's called a nominal amount of money? Twenty bucks so enough to be worth their while to stay in the study but not enough to really make a huge difference and that's essentially the placebo where you're giving them money. You're giving giving them a debit card. You're keeping them in the study and keep tabs on them and their kids but the amount of money is not really a difference making amount and forty percent of the MOMS in the study those in the quote unquote treatment in group are going to receive three hundred thirty three dollars a month. So that adds up to four thousand dollars a year which depending on your income bracket may or may not seem like a lot of money but all of the MOMS in this study are at or below the poverty line and so the idea is that because the families the MOMS and kids in this study are randomized into one group or the other? They're it just kinda drawn by a computer. If at the end of the study there are differences between the group that got more money in the group that got less then you can scientifically solidly say that. It's because of the money honey. That is the difference between the two and that would finally allow them to establish causation as opposed to just correlation in terms of poverty and all these negative in outcomes for kids. Well how will the study proceed. And how will they attempt to kind of measure this along the way. They've already started with what they call through to the year. One so what. The idea is that they will check in with the the kids and MOMS around the kids first birthday second birthday. Third Birthday the study is funded up to that point so far but they're now applying for continuous funding and there is is a pretty good precedent of really ambitious. Recall Longitudinal Studies that follow people over time being extended so you can easily imagine that maybe the study won't end when these kids are three. It might follow them until they're five until ten until they're twenty. There's fascinating possibilities there. But they will bring them into the lab and obviously the kids would be turning one to three on a rolling basis because the mom's been recruited all year. They'll do some brain scans of the kids. They'll talk to the moms about sort of how things are for them. On a day to day basis it will take a hair sample of the MOMS which allows them to measure stress through cortisol levels built a video of the moms playing with their kids so that allows them to kind of code for look at the quality of interaction between the parents and the kids and sort of how they're how they're mood is with each other and eventually down the road as the kids get a little older closer to three they will do more. Ambitious brain scans functional. MRI To show them better sort of specifically how the different areas of the brain are working size of the different areas and to really unpack sort of the differences that may emerge because they they don't know the end the research researchers very open about that. We can talk about what they think might happen. But they really don't know and either way the study should come out with a pretty fascinating fascinating robust answer about would if the real problem with an he's problem in quotes but if the real problem with poor families or four families is chess money and what if you just give the money like what if you don't worry about stuff like do. They have enough books in their house. Other kids enrolled in good preschool programs. You know do. The parents have a harmonious oneal relationship. Would have you just give them a chunk of money. Does that change everything a little bit. It's it's kind of has amazing possible implications or the answer might aby. No you know what it doesn't change that much. There is too much stress in the lives of these families. There are too many factors going on that money. Just can't cancel out so either wait you sort of end up with a really interesting answer will not put too fine a point on it but I can imagine that if this study did prove causation. Shen and did prove that look. It's not any of these other things it's just money that would really blow up some of the stigmas that are attached to kids in poverty. Yeah I mean there. There are obvious quite deep political implications here existential implications. You Know People's ideas about why some people have more. Some people have lost their ideas about how we as a society should help people or how much people should bootstrap themselves up. Those are pretty deeply held things right. Those are sort of the maybe the most hot metrics of by which we sort of see political divisiveness right now. So yeah I mean you're not going to convert vert everyone but it's always an interesting thing to have a solid scientific answer. You can point to know. The researchers are very careful to say they're not suggesting this panacea. They're not saying we should get rid of of all these ambitious. You know preschool improvement programs or parenting classes or anything like that and just give us families envelopes of cash. It's more that this is an interesting idea. That's worth testing. That hasn't been tested because there have been decades of testing that have gone on around. You know preschool programs parenting all that other stuff so we should road test this one too and no. It is a useful tool to have in the toolbox but absolutely if the answer comes back that guess what if you give poor families four thousand bucks a year. It improves a bunch which of things by enough to matter. Then that might suggest that maybe the only problem with those Pam families was that they were poor and if you give them a little leg up on the poverty already they can sort of solve all the other stuff themselves. There's also all kinds of other expectations baked into this about how poor people spend money and musicians about finances. And I when I asked I asked Kimberly Noble. Do you get us by people. Like what if the mom spend the money on crappy stuff like what if they make poor decisions in there you know buying liquor Acre cigarettes or whatever and she laughed and said we get that question all the time. It's one of the first things they get us because there's no strings attached to this money but the answer is that that just it doesn't really happen. They did a small pilot. Study to sort of test the feasibility of the debit card thing and out of I think it was eleven hundred transactions. Exactly three occurred at stores that could be considered liquor stores.

Okay let me tell you what I just got an alarm system my house so that I didn't have to have my phone by my bed paying Ryan for a dumb alarm purely so they'll have more self control and I've slept better in the two weeks that I've had the alarm. The armistice was just like a regular alarm alarm alarm alarm system. The line I was saying to myself is I gotTa have my phone me Ya if someone breaks in state helped myself now. There's an alarm arm. He's on the phone can be across the room. See you leaders in your office am office. Wow that is next. Level is hard. Yeah but it helps me sleep and there's two things I'm not staying up late on my phone and I do not want to wake up to other people's life because when I had it I'll wake up very first thing. I'll do go to instagram associate. So I'm turning over and I'm not acknowledging him growing my life I'm looking at your life okay. And I was like I can't do that. That wasn't unhealthy weight.

Just launched this I'm like I WANNA be happy for them but I started not being happy for people and also our work starts as soon as we open our phone absol- because part of our job is social media. Yes and as soon as my phone I might as well have clocked in absolutely I may oh I should just post this one quick thing and then I'll go have my quiet time which I hate using quiet. There's other words or let me just look at the lowest answer these three emails and then the next thing you know. You've never put your phone all the way down again absolutely and that's and that's one thing I'm doing now. I'm choosing one one day a week to stay off social media altogether when social media is a huge part of my day week during the workweek. Are you taking the weekend off. Whatever Rega- Armitage? I take a month off every year. So entire December For the last five years I've taken off so yeah well when I look at it my social media lady won't even access anything on my social media. I'm completely ghost and I did it last December and I'm telling you it feels so refreshing because I'm just I'm not looking at everyone's life and is getting better for me now I'm as being transparent show but it's like it's helped me. It's even helped me save more money because we buy see people going out buying this or binding later shoes going over here for a vacation. I'm Mike I should go there for vacation I should buy and so now it's I don't see a lot of stuff. Yeah because I'm not on it as much as what. I'm trying to newest post more in not look a lot. Yeah not good on my feet. Now that's what I was from. Trump card is easy. You're right it's the right thing I mean it has been at joked with dino torn wells musician how we should make you friends with him. So he's wonderful but he was just on the show and we joked like you didn't see anybody making New Year's resolutions of like I'd love to be on my phone more beyond my phone a lot more. That's what I want for twenty. Nobody nobody did you set like resolutions for twenty. How do you do that? Do you set goals or do you write a New Vision every year do formations keep on what. So you know got formed us in our mothers womb and I believe that goes are great goes I I believe that you know everyone should have a go but for me for the year twenty twenty. I'm asking myself who am I forming myself to become So every single day I have daily habits. That's helped me for myself into a better man Dan to a better communicator into a better author into a better friend. So every single day is what am I doing to form a better version of me because we're always for me yet. Once we hit the goal where done yeah and so I believe that I have small daily habits which are like small goes that is automatically getting me to become a better author You know one of my things would author is. I'm not grammar is not my best and so I'm teaching myself to read Not Teaching I'm trying to read two books a month which will help me become better with a former me into a better communicator. Yeah I like to do experiments because I don't think anybody quits experiments there you go. You say if I do this for days what could happen yes. I wonder how different my life could be. Ill Aw man. What if I saved fifty dollars a month? Oh what could I do at the outset nobody quits experience. Everyone wants to see blow. You should ask yourself what would happen if you actually budget every be my okay. You know I had no. I had to say that you're so right. You're not wrong every every I'll listen. You are welcome here anytime we would love it okay. So debt-free degree in the next one will be out in the spring so we'll make sure everybody knows about that. Because I I would imagine. I'm in my thirties as well as into my thirties. I'm watching. My friends are a lot of my friends who are married with kids are having teenagers. They've got fourteen thirteen year olds and they're starting to think. Oh Man. I'm not even done with my college yet and I've got to pay for my kids. We gotTA figure out to pay for my kids. So you're you're catching on the front side in the backside. I'm catching on front side and back early and this is what I do. I have my publicist enjoyed case of books. You can give out to some of your tribe members. Lisa helped him then we released. That will send you another game. That is why I like you go. Good that's called. That sounds fine. This is I mean yes good. We WanNA boring podcast. Okay Grassy. Why you're when the best? You're very. Ah Good it is very fun for me too. Okay there anything we didn't talk about. You WanNa talk about no. I mean we've talked. This is your podcast and this has been a very open by. We've talked everything theme from Jim Life. We're going to go deeper into the gym. Conversation was wearing and save that for youtube hop over to Youtube. Because I've got two more questions about the gym about your gym life but we're doing that on Youtube. Okay Hey the final question. We always ask okay if you're ready I Dunno I gave. The show is called. That sounds fine. Okay tell me what you do for fun. When did you have fun in those hours of your day Massey? I don't know if I have fun during the day but during the summer I love to get away for two weeks weeks and go somewhere where no one knows me and just have a bias. What give me some examples? Where'd you go last year went to Hawaii? Okay and yourself take some friends knew I'd go by. I WanNa go and just be free. I mean golf. I mean I have a great eight time. Okay just when you went to Hawaii what island Anna Wa. Who did you say that Honolulu for the two weeks so far no from one week? Okay then I'm going to Cali for the next week okay beautiful. Where are you going to go this year? Greece get out of here. You'RE GONNA go by yourself by myself for two weeks. Pray for me because when I get married I got to travel with my wife. She's GonNa WanNa go but throughout that as far as throughout the week fun. I'm a Golfer Fund Jim. Of course we'll talk more about that but then believe it or not every Friday. If I am free and not traveling I go to the movies. Oh let's go there here. I love the movie so much. You have the regal past year before it has a Rigo Pass ahead in the movie movie past movie pass. Was the Biz exactly. That's why they couldn't allow. I was so upset because I went there one day and it was declined decline. You got my money so I need you right but I'm a movie Guy. Watch catch more movies than I actually watch TV okay. What have you seen recently in the theaters that you love? Oh man what have I seen recently in the movie theaters that I love I just seen I forgot the name of it. But is the ocean one where they went to very bottom of the show and it was drilling. I forgot the name of this Friday. I'm going to see bad boys. Okay Yes yes Lawrence Will Smith Will Smith yes. Oh Bad. Boys is my ultimate favorite movies. So I've seen all I've seen there's only been two out but I'm really excited about this okay and when you go by yourself absolutely I don't I don't Wanna I don't WanNa talking to me or do you bring bring your own Ramsey. Say you out of debt. He doesn't care he doesn't care about your bring your own snacks back in the days. My Mama stop this you know by the store store and the way they got the twenty five cent coke bottles of wing went to the store and got some candy and she'll sneak a man that ain't Guy I remember one time I.

"Is. Did you pay cash for it exactly. That's probably not bringing McDonald's in for exactly and so but in other areas of my life I do have accountability partners and mentors hold me accountable. to life like this living right yeah no so it was like as a young man like. Hey Hey man hold me to it. And it's been great and it's been healthy. We all need mentors encounter abilities partners in certain areas of I think in every every Arab people always want a mentor. How did you find yours? You know the very first thing for me was Ashley. I was very involved with the church so I literally asked my past with I k. Can You be my mentor. I I eventually want to be preaching and teaching the Gospel and he said the goal. Is that like a part part of where you WANNA take life. Yeah yeah so it's like when when it comes to. I'm doing that now. Pretend Teaching Gospel But back then I was like hey I want to go down this path and he said Hey I'm GonNa give you one day in in that one day. I'm GonNa give you two hours that that will determine whether we proceed and so I was like all right cool so I get in there and this is our soup or you like I'm ready. I'm ready and so I I remember one thing. My Mom said one thing you have two ears on one mouth listen more than you speak. Um and she said going every three questions and I guarantee you would not need any more questions. How now I am? A MOM was right. I only needed to because when you really ask a mentor or someone you look up to a question they can take that one question and just talk for a long on time and I just remember taking down notes and at that time he said I will mentor you. Because you didn't talk much you didn't tell me a lot of things you listened was let as we noted you WanNa grow so when I met with that one person That one pastor. I started meeting other people in doing the exact same thing even to this day. I work with Dave but when I'm in the office with Dave I listen way more than I talk because he's wiser. He's wealthier and one day. I WANNA be a multimillionaire like him. So as he's talking looking I'm listening and so that's just one thing I'm doing as much as I possibly can. If I can't get run individuals like that I I I love it But I read a lot of books from mentors who we're not even who don't even know may follow them on instagram. We don't even know my name. I follow people who will help grow me and let them mentor me. Through their books through their podcasts through their g through their social media I don't follow a lot of people on my g because if you can't help me grow me I don't WanNa uh-huh yeah that's smart that because the other option is people you compete with. Yes are people that that walk you toward things. There's one account that I used to kind of stop because 'cause I thought it was funny and I was like this is actually not lead me anywhere. Good ever absolutely you just have to make yourself quit. I mean I just had to say to one of my friends. Hey asked me if I keep looking at this account as I need someone to know I do it and I need to stop because it's funny but it's not good for me and so followed. They help you grow or if they can help you you get closer to your goals Hustler. What happens when you ask someone to mentor you and they say now that's fine? Okay okay. That's right okay. They say no they you just said no today and so you know I always tell people step back and pray and figure out why they said no you know ask them did you say no. Because you're busy okay. Cool great what. If I don't take up much of your time Did you say no because you just do not want to mentor me. If they say yes a great but I believe anyone that's supposed to be in your life will be in your life if you pray seek God first and ask God to bring into your life the people who should be in your life. Who's going to help? Help you get closer to your kingdom assignment or just to your career goals in life. In general God will make sure that that thing happens. Do Not Force it Just just be precise fourth because that mentor is GonNa shut down. Hard is and what you don't want to do is have other mentors talking about you. So always say be respectful will be kind be loving and be persistent but do not be rude about yeah. I like looking for people at Church. Who who look like my parents friends friends and I go because my parents and so I'm like okay? You look about the same age as my parents and I've sat around you in church for six years surfer a year or for a couple of months or if you're new to town I've watched you for three weeks and Y'all sit in the same seat every week. Can I come over for dinner time. Yes I'm new to town. Could I take you to coffee. Well you know. I just think there's there's something about looking around. Don't I think the pastor is a good place to go when you're invested in Church but also sometimes the Patrick can only have time for one. Anthony any you know and then also two of you inside of church May look for small group leader. Yeah no someone who's WHO's leading a small group at home at a coffee shop there a good place to start Looking for mentors mentors. But if you really wanted to get aroused some influential people like in a business base. Start going to their conferences. Okay you know so like if Davidson town Anthony's down Hogan Rachel's in town start going to the conference and just start getting around the people who are at that conference and you'll find different people inside that a group that share you buy a ticket the first time the second time you volunteer. You're surrounded by people who are absolutely. I spoke at a young life conference France last week for staff. Oh Young Fokker fifty five hundred staff fifteen hundred more single. I got up on stage. You want someone who's on mission in love these job you're shooting fish in a barrel and partner up. Let's go fifteen hundreds of y'all if you're looking for business mentors or business peers in your city eight. Yep going to those conferences and look around and you've got people who care about the same thing you care about us it so when you're looking for mentorship they're they're sitting in the same conference as you're paying to sit in. Yes as being debt free affected your faith who. That's a good question I it's allowed me to really be more free and not be stress and concern. It's allowed me to really focus on my came and Simon rather than focusing on getting a paycheck. Yeah and I believe that God wants us to have financial peace. He wants us to have. Joey wants us to have freedom. And so for me when it comes to my faith now that I'm debt free now honestly just everything. I'm doing right now. I'm focusing focusing on the legacy for my name when I you know I want people to know Anthony as Anthony Neal was a man of God who loved people and who wanted them to have financial peace half financial freedom and to leave a inheritance to their children's children. If I was still in debt we'll be getting up every single day. Not focusing focusing on Akina but focusing on getting his paycheck to pay off the debt to get to the next paycheck to pay off some more debt and I don't want that lifestyle to live paycheck to paycheck. Being debt debt. Free has really allowed me to focus on the end goal which is to be pleasing and to get a job well done from. Jesus Christ. Yeah why is it that money has that much power money thing. I just blows my mind. You know we talk when we really sit back and study. Man Money's the number one thing that is talked about in the Bible it should. It has so much power But everyone goes after money. A lot of people go after wealth Which I get the wealth part? I'm still kind of confused. Wise money so important went to me. Joy is more than actual physical grain and yet we totally think having money will make us happy it just and it just doesn't It just I'm telling you right now. I've I remember one year. I made the most money I've ever made in my entire life live and when I look back at that year I wasn't more joyful. Yeah I wasn't happier now. Money does bring happiness because it brings some sense of freedom but it doesn't bring joy. Yeah and for me. That's what I desire is. Is Joe Away in freedom. But it doesn't make you honestly it makes you a little bit more bigger than what you already are. That's right exactly so you're arrogant. You're going to be a little bit more arrogant. If you're happy you may be may become. I'm a little more happier but I don't really focus on money. Our focus on joy are focused on my assignment and with that being said I believe if I seek ye first the all the other stuff will come and I'll be happy. I think it's interesting to look at the the path of that and look at money because what I'm seeing in your life based on my instant. It's Internet stalking of you is is the way you talk about money as an the healthy relationship you've grown with money. It just seems like when one the area is right the rest of them start to get right and it just feels like. You're living a very disciplined life. I'm full of joy. I'm trying to look like you're not having Finebaum the having fun but you're going to the gym I'm going to wake up every morning and that is my. It's the real thing who we if I if Jim from me is the coffee not really yes. If I don't go to gym I'm going. What time do you have to go to the gym? I'm Jim every morning at seventy But my day starts at four thirty because I live in Columbia. So that's our our Dr Jump back into the city and so oh so you come like you take your bag from home and you go back. Don't go back okay so talk us through your morning now. I'm fascinated ARMENTA. I listen. She needs to hear the schedule like she's buying into. It's an amazing journey. You know I get up. I do a little bit of music around the house a little bit of a beat Aid Gospel. Franklin you know I do a little morning. Devaux read the word. Read Tony Evans devaux in Study Bible then after that I flip the script. Okay we McKay go from this. This saved Gospel music to a little bit of A. You know RB HIP hop getting my mind ready. Yeah so I'm packing. My clothes. News responded to some emails before I leave And then I hit the gym I leave about maybe five thirty go to gym. Get there about six fifteen stretch and finishes the is hard. It's hard. Yeah and then after that I feel good I like I feel. I am ready to conquered the day And I just is get into office on McKay. Who can we help today? That's the very first question that I ask myself when I pulled onto our parking lot who can the AO. Oh team help today. Yeah Endesa Smart feel that or not. That's the question you ask. I mean I think that's important because we don't want to. You aren't presenting to people and we don't want him I think thank you and I live. pollyanna lives really. How can we be helpful after we go to the gym and have quiet time learning how I may feel terrible? Oh yes question is still yes. I feel terrible often. I'm upset often but but we cannot just be like. Hey I'm upset I don't feel like working. No we need to help someone. Yeah I've got no stage upset and whenever no save a because I'm still human. Yeah no I still have fillings and emotions. But I've been able to teach myself all right. Set those aside for right now. I mean there's only been two times in seven years of full time traveling and speaking that I've had to say to the people before I teach. You need to know this going on in my private life because I don't know how to teach around this. I can't pretend like one of a friend of mine had died while I was on the flight there really suddenly and so what can you do a. I can't go back home yet. I have to things like that but most of the time you're like. Hey Hey I can get up here and put aside. What's going on with me and do what? God's call me because who'd we get to help today air yes I love it and so how long have you say it. We're just keeping your whole day. Calendar I mean it could be all day Sometimes it can be all day sometimes. It can be a half a day when I really end meetings. I try to go home and go to my own personal Ersan office to do some reading to do some studying To do some writing. Yeah because a lot of my job is about creating content and delivering content. Yeah and so when I I really study best and right best when I'm at home in my own space but for the majority of the time I probably dolphins right around three or four o'clock in the afternoon but I'm there as early as seven thirty eight hundred And just back to back meetings or west next with our team and meeting with different things like right..

"That's different on all your every personality Ramsey when people get out of debt they hold a little wooden sign in their picture. Rachel share some. You share Christie's years and years always say I'm changing my family tree. Absolutely no one else's says that and I think it's become an hopefully if if I go too far you let me know when we related to African American culture unfortunately Wealth and inheritance is not really passed down a lot within that culture. I'm not saying that it doesn't happen but as a whole we are. I'm not blessed and privileged to have land passed down to us have businesses. Passed down to us. Have you know wealth money or even houses passed out. We get a lot of debt. A lot of frustration A lot of confusion passed down to us and so one thing that I'm seeing not just within African American culture but in in all the culture but specifically typically people who get lower income individuals are always say we live here in you know in Nashville. Always say to the people who live in Nashville compared to the people who live in Franklin and Brentwood. It would I relate more with the Nashville people. Then Franklin and Brentwood but it's They're getting excited because they're like. Wow I'm going to get out of debt. I'm going to build my wealth up and when I pass by kids will be able to start where I finished. I started and I think it's getting catching in a lot of momentum because the African American compare it to the Caucasian wealth is night in day. And so I'm excited to help all people good out of debt and build wealth but I'm extremely excited to see people who look like me. Who are African American or minorities be able to you? Know what learn The the true definition of stewardship and financial peace because it is not just impacting them. But it's impacting their bloodlines. After yes I read sixteen nineteen projects. Okay I hadn't realized until I read Sixteen Nineteen project how how much I had not thought about while I don't have a farm plot live my own historically in my family because I'm white. We can trace land ownership there. You go a long way and I just had not forgive me but I had not considered that has helped me. Yes I just thought. Oh my parents this. We lived in this neighborhood and I went to the school and my parents. But there is a centuries trays long Help that I've underestimated and I love that. You know what I hear is like I say this I citizen of log. I said privilege Israel and I think that's it's privileges that you have. Here's the thing for me. I didn't have those kind of privileges but my kids will kind of privilege and then their kids will have that kind of take their kids will be able to track their wealth back to Anthony O'Neill and whoever got allows me to marry and it starts here so now it's like privileges real with everyone and and don't be ashamed because you know why people are not why people I'm saying that like that but you know that culture can trace things but so can all culture and that's what I'm working working woman in my family so for your book debt free degree. I mean you really do. Specialize in students having being debt free so do a lot with lots of universities At historically black colleges and universities all over really all over tomorrow this morning I just did TRIBECA. Yes spoke there this morning and then a couple of So much I did on. But don't Cookman did Tennessee State University well and so I'm getting a lot of culture when it comes to a little bit of everything But the Hughes are starting to reach out A lot more only because when you really study student loans and how. It's impacting all people. It is just crazy but then when you really deep dive the minority community are feeling more. Yeah because in some ways they're delayed late in getting the opportunity to go to college so they're also delayed. Anyone lower income is delayed and having a solution to doing that without debt. And when you really step back and and do the stats The average person twenty years out today Graduate College owes about maybe sixty sixty two percent of their student loans still but minorities forties own hundred and thirteen. And so so it's scary because the income level compare from you know two different cultures cultures. It is night and day and so which is why I'm so passionate about the message. Debt free degree inches. Really getting out of debt in general because while there are some other conversations station that need to be had on that side of how do we fix it at least my parties. Let me help you. Avoid debt Bill savings build your wealth That's my Simon. Yeah Made A. How did you figure that out? How'd you know that was one of the things got put you on the planet today? You know my story. I grew up with four as parents like I said to biological parents to step parents and I knew everything about church new like in my culture. I knew how to fall out. I knew how I knew. How do all of that but no one really taught me how how to be successful with my money? It was just I go to school get an education and then after that get a good credit report get a good job get some retirement benefits fits and you'll be good right and so when I got into college I I didn't know the difference between a credit card or a debit card. I didn't know anything about that. And so I ended up actually homeless a sleeping in the back of my car trying to figure out where I was like. Nineteen sleeping in the back of your car. Yeah so for six months my life. I'm trying to figure out some nights. I'm sleeping on my friend's couch some nights. I'm seeing the back of my car. I don't know what I'm GonNa do for six months and it was. It was because of the decisions that I made ultimately but I didn't have the wisdom knowledge and guidance From my parents in the area of finance and so I got my life actually right with God during that time. God if you can just give me another chance nor won't be perfect but I will for sure. Make sure that I do not come back here. And that's what happened when back home with my parents allow. How many come back home to the Dave Ramsey financial peace university class? Back then A really got on a strong budget and just really went focus. So today I'm debt free Just built my house out there in Columbia time But that was really my call belt cash. Oh no I didn't do all the cash and you don't have to do all right now. Put down a law down payment. But you know I didn't pay for it all cash but it will be like go back and look at nineteen year old self south. Yes that he decided take Dave Ramsey class. And now you have Dave's phone number Davidson number and he is my number one mentor life. Yeah yeah that is just something. I'm grateful what do you say to yourself about. God when you look at. That story zoomed out. God is better than good to me. He has been better than good. I shouldn't be where I am today. Shouldn't be on a stage that I am on today and so because of that He has just been. I'm just forever grateful. The mother main reasons why I stay humble is because I know with my story with my history God still chose me. I cannot sit here and be a bad steward of them. The things we do when we get to a speaking event drive before we get out of the car I say God could have picked anybody and these people could have picked anybody picked us. So let's live like that privilege and so when we walk whether we've got me and my sister. I've gotten an argument in the car. A whether avenue bad mood which is usually anybody in a bad mood is going to be me right when we have at that moment. It really centers everything he could God and this church could have picked anybody absolutely. They both picked us for this. I'm so great. I'm so great for them so I just imagine there are people listening who have college debt for sure. What do they do? They don't want it either. They don't like it either but they're barely getting by the one in a very first things. I would definitely say as when I had college debt is I wrote down vision from a life. Okay where do you WanNa go where there is no vision s where people perish and so you need to have a clear vision when I say clear vision. I'm talking. What do you want to do with your life? Do you want to be debt free. That is a part of your vision so write that down and write that down and put it three places you can see it every single day in cake. The unique motivation you only motivation. Why does it matter to be debt-free well for me? It's like when the Bible says it. The borrower is slave to the lender and I believe that it prevents prevents you from going towards your goals. Your dreams a lot of people say Anthony doesn't want him to go after my dreams. Now I just want to prevent you from having a nightmare. Okay and so so you know nothing. Positive has come from the debt even when we break it down spiritually guide is never spoke positive about that now he never said it is a sin but he never said hey this this is a good thing for you to do or to have participate in and so for me. I want you to avoid debt and really focus on building your wealth and so the number one thing you just have a vision and a number two which is go ahead and put it down there. Take debt off the table and keep it off the table and get on a budget every millionaire that I have met with said that they can tell me where every dollar of their money goes rally air on a strict budget. And so when you are trying to why I now it's all the time I mean I look at it. I'm not I'm debt free. What do you do it every month? It is.

It's like hey why are you off work irk you know once you come out and what you just chill with us. I'm chilling what you ain't getting me paid me figure out some things but it's not just all on them like one of my pastor mentor. France just told me the other day said the reason why you're single the common denominator factor is you And so I'm like there are some things that were going away anthony. I sat with my counselor last last week and house like I recognize. I'm doing the work healthier. I'm doing the work. Also the common denominator here. I keep picking the same Kinda guy so that there's there's something and she was like. Okay well she was real calm because she was like I mean it's not overt. We're doing the work but you're right. Maybe there's some covert things that are making you pick the same kind of ending. Every she's us. Bring them into this this him. He's got some responsibilities. It is but he's working on me and while he's working on me. I'm really just stepping back. Are you so blaming well. She did that in the exit. That and I never really say what Anthony. What what did you do Here lately I've really been just asking myself and just really diving into God's word when it comes to me as being a king demands are picked up another one one of my mentor. Friends Book adopted Tony Evans Kingdom all in some really just diving into that and just growing myself as a man so when my wife does come I could be a good steward of that opportunity to have a wife and have a family. Okay I love Dr Evans. I'm dying to have him on here I've had Priscilla I've had crystal. Okay okay. Two sisters I haven't had either of the sons or Evans and Dr Tony Evans would be amazed. I know we have Sarah Jakes on your yet no. I met her at Christie's Business Batik but I haven't had her on she's awesome. I loved about them at Business Boutique. They were dressed S.. Two thousand nine showed up ready. I was wearing a shirt that I promise you. She had never warned that skirt before she showed up in. Sounds like my girl is coming in hot and it was amazing Sarah. Yeah that is Sarah Sarah. I mean it just said to me I am not a person who do I do not think you have to wear a certain brand. I don't think you have to show up looking like a certain thing. What I do think is the way you show up as how people treat and if you look like you've tried even if you have a very low budget budget absolutely tried and when she showed up I was like I don't know if you've got that goodwill or ignored I respect that skirt this story? Hey for you I like them. I like the thing I love about Dr Evans. I just got in the mail. His commentary and it's the First Bible commentary every written by a man. Yeah I got it to as soon as it came out I have that and the kingdom as big and His devils when I'm reading in the morning so I read his devaux and then I go to that that Study Bible. Yeah and I just put two and two together. And it's just he's a he's an amazing guy when it comes to interpreting scripture. Yeah just makes me like. How did you see that from so different that it's him that wrote it absolutely does because Dr Tony Evans with him being a black man also understands the world outside of just being an African American man so is he knows how to relate to african-american plenty also awesome had relate to the white people and then just bring us all together to understand the word? It doesn't matter what shade of anything you are. When you have the legacy he he has? Yes you listen to him. Absolutely I mean. He's the one that I want to be like. Can everybody in leadership everywhere called Doctor. Who actually can he be president? I just wish he could we you just move him into in charge of everything. That's my job okay. So we're gonNA find your wife. Tiny people are screaming at their phones. And I know what it wasn't this and let me tell you what I know. They're screaming there.

Listen Man. This is unlike in this podcast. That's how do you date women of all colors if you prefer today black women or white women or what is it. I have never dated any woman outside of my color. My preference is African American. And I'll tell you why I'm not a racist thing right at all. It's just that I was raised by two African American mothers so I have a biological mother and a stepmother and it says something about about just I WANNA have the same paternity is to raise my children Within our cultures they understand. Some things in is not a racist thing. Hit Up my twitter last year. Some time people are great onto congratulations. Someone asks me that question and I said no I would like to date within my within my a culture that's my preference and they just called me races and this that and this and SAR responded to the person and say hey.

The women in line at Car Karimun about uh-huh and Visa Melinda and I'm all for sharing we gotta we gotta couple we've got a couple little episode of the Bachelor here side Pie. Listen so now say give me some water would just have a good time. I think one of the beautiful things you're doing you're modeling here. That I try to do is to say to people man. We have got the full lives that are really fun and also we want to get married absolutely have kit. Like I'm assuming I I WANNA have kids and I think when the beautiful things we get to teach this weird twenty twenty world of our lives being public is you. We get to say I have and I want yes and holding both. What does that look like for you to be able to say like what does your life look on a Tuesday or Thursday? Where you're gone? My life is what I want and also there are things I want have. I'm very vocal about being a family. Man I desire desire a family more than desire wealth more than our desire fame But you know when I wake up on a Tuesday I have a great life. I had the opportunity to work with. You know Dave Ramsey Rachel cruze come into work within an amazing team. Travelled around the world right books and do this great stuff. I have that bestselling books by the way. I wouldn't say that but you know there you go. I appreciate you for saying that but I'm just grateful to even have the life that I do have But I'm also excited about where God is taking me. I know he's caught me to be a man husband I know he's caught me to be you know a father father and I just I get excited about. That was makes me Ashley Work Harder. Were throughout the week. Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday. You name because everything that I'm doing today is setting my family up for success setting my kids up so they could be wealthy setting my kids kids kids up to be wealthy theme because you know I don't come from a family of wealth. I come from a family. That was You know we live paycheck to paycheck We had to literally put tape on the bottom of my shoes. Just keep the sites in them. I I saw grew up split Fifty percent of my life in San Diego California than the other fifty percent of my life life was in Fayetteville North Carolina. Wow so I went back and forth because of again my mom Stepdad and siblings and my dad step mom So they live on opposite opposite sides of the world so I grew up knowing a little bit of all the world But in a very strong strict Christian Faith Church in God in Christ faith faith and Just living paycheck to paycheck. So I want to change that for my kids. I WANNA start the family tree to where when my kids get of age they know what wealthiest but they also know where we come from. Yeah so that's one thing I'm just really excited about when it comes to. This is what I want and I'm working towards that right now. I just love that. I think something taught us in Christian when we were young. That if you want something stay quiet about it because your needs to be content just be content and then God will bring you when you when you stop being hungry. You'll get fed. That's not how this works. It's not how it works. Works and I. I love life where we can say if I got nothing else I wanted. Aren't I lucky also Arabs things. I Want God Act Solomon is like hey asked me anything that you want and he said God give me wisdom and knowledge and gossip.

A couple of weeks ago there was a a girl young African American girl who had gotten out of debt. And and something..
Sanchita Balachandran Shifts the Framework for Conservation with Untold Stories
"The field of conservation was created to fight change to prevent objects from becoming dusty broken or rusted but fighting to keep cultural objects preserved creates a certain mindset the mindset of protector a mindset. It's too easy to imagine objects and cultures. In the state of stasis. This is how it always was and will be forever. Often I mean just given the colonial oneal had an imperial histories of museums. It was because people were going to be gone forever. That culture was gone. And so this is the last trace but in fact. That's not how cultural heritage works it. It's transformed it's changed. It continues on in different forms and a lot of the way the Conservatives think about cultural heritage is is about out mitigating that change. which makes it a little bit fossilized but to me that changes where things are really vibrant exciting and people are so closely connected to cultural cultural heritage that it really feels alive? This is since Cheetah Bala Chandran Associate Director of the John Hopkins Archaeological Museum. Hello my name is Cinci Bala Alexander. I'm conservative and I'm trained in the conservation of archaeological materials in particular and my day job is the associate director of the Archaeological Theological Museum at Johns Hopkins University. Bala Chandran founded untold stories a project that pursues conservation profession that represents and preserves a full spectrum of human cultural heritage for the past few years. The project has been hosting public events at the annual meetings of the American Institute for Conservation Conservation Untold Stories emerged of bollocks hundreds frustration with how narrowly the field of conservation has been defined at felt that there were literally early too many untold stories in the field of conservation. I wanted to find ways to actually start to think about what else cultural heritage could mean other than say the things we typically think of as belonging in a museum or many of us cultural heritage means going to this important looking building that has paintings and sculpture and has labels labels next to it and I think we kind of decided in some ways at that's cultural heritage and preservation means taking care of those things and really I've become more and more aware error and curious about the fact that cultural heritage is much more complicated and diverse set of practices. It's often not necessarily about a single object or a thing but rather how that thing might function within a community or communities as as part of a series of practices and exchanges and storytelling and I just wanted to have a way to kind of work with people who are really doing that work outside the museum and doing it in ways that I think preserved Europe but also change cultural practices since untold stories takes place at the annual meetings of the American Institute for Conservation. A lot of professionals in the field Are already gathered there. The meetings attract over one thousand conservators blake many professional conferences. The meetings are often held in a nondescript hotel how setting but untold stories makes it a practice to conceptualize where attendees are sitting and the history that preceded them an example of this is the twentieth nineteen eighteen untold stories event titled Indigenous Futures and Collaborative Conservation. How many times have you been to a conference and you could be anywhere right? I mean you're in this big room and you never leave the hotel or the conference center and part of what I was interested in was trying to actually place a somewhere so twenty one thousand nine since we were actually meeting at the Mohegan Sun which is a Mohegan owned casino. We were on native land. It seemed like a really important opportunity. -tunities to talk about native sovereignty kind of history of genocide in our own country. The fact that anyone who's non-indigenous in this country is a settler settler colonialist but to really think about what this means in terms of how we take care of collections that have come to us as a result of historical happenstance stance but also a very violent past and to acknowledge the fact that museums which for most of us who work in museums are very safe. Welcoming and joyful places uses are evidence of this history of of pain and removal so the opportunity to work with the commod educational initiative was really exciting. Because because it's a partly native co-founded and they do a lot of educational work around questions of how even think about the history of this country story and to me. That was really important to be able to say in native space as opposed to you know in a place somewhere else. Part of of Bala. Hundreds point is that there isn't such a thing as a textualist cultural material. The intentionally nondescript conference ballroom has a lot in common with deliberately sterile museum environment episode. Sixty eight of this show features an interview with Ed Wanda's spears director of programming and outreach at the adamant educational initiative and one of the convenors of the twenty nineteen untold stories event in the episode. She discusses her presentation about how native native narratives are violently presented through White Lens in museums. It was in Donna spheres of Who suggested the title she had worked in museums? She's very familiar with these questions. And she's the one who suggested indigenous futures which forces you to recognize that this is not something of the past. We really wanted to do something. The thing that felt like we were going to push. This had to be uncomfortable but it also had to be aspirational. Where do we go now? And how can as conservatives servers we actually be part of this very kind of collaborative supportive mission to ensure futures. We can't make it happen by ourselves. It's it's not like we're saving anybody and that's another big concern of mine. There's a real sort of savior mentality that I think conservation has ask we save objects and I certainly came out of graduate school thinking that I was going to save everything and to me. That's a very problematic way to think about it because frankly if the objects still survives it didn't need me it made it thousands of years without me somehow. We've decided that we're the ones that making the that make these things live live forever which is pure arrogance so part of this event was really to think about how as conservatives can come up with action items and by action items. It was practices but more than anything of kind of Shipton in a mental framework for working much more equitably and more humbly to really have a sense of respect for this notion that there has already been a history before you and so when you enter into this hopefully collaborative relationship you need to acknowledge alleged. Things have survived for a long time without your intervention. And they don't need you but you could actually provide some sort of service some sort of benefit that could actually really help the untold stories team. True to their mission is careful not to present the workshop as a single solution or even a set of solutions. The team wants wants to counter the assumption within the profession. That all you need to do is go to one workshop and then you're all done you know. Unfortunately this doesn't change the working working practices it doesn't change the mindset. It doesn't change the way an organization functions and what happens is then marginalized people are called upon again and again to kind of keep performing this vulnerability and this discomfort for themselves in order to educate people who are unwilling to do the work that consistent like every single day for the rest of their lives work that will be required to make transformative change possible part of what in the twenty nineteen in conversation we. We felt very strongly we had to say is if if you really believe in equality if you really want to do something that is truly collaborative that does not assume some sort of hierarchy. It means being really uncomfortable the entire time and maybe at the end of it things will change but you you still have to kind of follow through on it when it gets really uncomfortable. And the fact is most marginalized communities. People have done this entire lives so it it just feels like it's time for you. Know I think in general the museum community to say we're willing to engage in these kinds of difficult ongoing perpetual natural
June 17th, 1765 in Williamsburg Virginia
"On this episode. I'm once again on location in colonial oneal Williamsburg in Virginia last time we were together. We were outside of Bruton Parish Church a congregation that was founded an Anglican congregation Gatien that was founded in sixteen seventy four Williamsburg was founded as a town in sixteen thirty eight and of course Jamestown Jamestown was the original capital but in sixteen ninety nine the capital of the colony was moved to here and it held that capital all the way until seventeen eighty when and during the revolutionary war it was deemed that Richmond would be a safer place well we are interested in the year seventeen sixty five in fact a date in seventeen sixty five on June seventeen seventeen sixty five a group of seventeen men got together and petitioned Russian the court here and Williamsburg. This is what they requested. We intend to make use of a house in the city of Williamsburg situated on part of a lot belonging to Mr George Davenport as a place for the public worship of God. According to the Protestant Austin dissenters of the Presbyterian denomination well. This is an Anglican colony. The Anglican Church is the the established church and these seventeen presbyterians wanted an authorized legal Presbyterian church to be established they actually actually added a ps two it and the PS was this as we are unable to obtain a settled minister. We intend this place at present only for occasional worship when we have opportunity to hear any legally qualified minister well. The city of Williamsburg granted their request. They established their church perch. It was just a small little modest meeting houses. They mentioned they're not even able to have a settled minister. I walked it off and it measures about twenty two defeat by thirty six feet and in this very simple meeting house these presbyterians met member how Paul ends Romans by listing listing off a number of people well here are seventeen names William Smith John Connolly Walter Lenox James Holdcroft Robert Burke Nicholson John orchiston James Douglas James Atherton William Gemmell Edward Cummins Thomas Skinner Daniel Hoy John Bell James Smith William Brown John Morris and Charles Hankins. These were carpenters vendor's craftsman. Some of them worked in the courthouse. These were the seventeen who started this church on June. Seventeen seventeen sixty five these presbyterians came out of the great awakening. They were a new side Presbyterian Rian Church that meant that they were not only in favor of the great awakening but many of these were likely converted during the great awakening some of them might have been in converted under the Ministry of George Whitfield. Remember that sermon that we heard a paragraph from by Steve Lawson. Some of them might have been converted by I Samuel Davies Samuel Davies was a Presbyterian Missionary Tha Virginia his first wife died and his second wife was Jane Holt. Her family was a prominent family here Williamsburg and so Samuel Davies made many visits to the capital city not only to see his in laws but also to petition before the Virginia legislature and before the Virginia governor for Religious Freedom and no doubt bolstered these presbyterians that were here in Williamsburg one of those ministers who came occasionally to preach actually to those ministers who came occasionally here to preach once they've established their meeting eating house were trained by Samuel Davies well. That's the Presbyterian
Patriots may soon have to deal with their first Antonio Brown issue and it has to do with his number
"We have to talk about the biggest storyline in the NFL Antonio Brown as it looks like the saga for Antonio in some ways is finally ending and in other ways. It's just beginning for number eighty four as Antonio uh-huh Brown signs a one year proved deal with the New England patriots and it's hilarious because there is so much speculation when all his shenanigans with the Oakland Raiders for going on that really it was just a grand master plan for Bill Bella check to somehow land the all world talent wide receiver in sure enough he gets released from the raiders and later that day signs deal with the New England patriots another huge weapon in the offense four. Tom Brady and this has shades of what Randy Moss did did when he was with the Oakland Raiders. Moss spent some time in Oakland during his games he played for the raiders. You could just see that the big hall of fame wide receivers hardest wasn't in it. He wasn't really producing for the raiders he was now running routes with this full heart. You can just tell that he wasn't the Randy Moss when he was sooner in Oakland and then he goes to the Patriots under Bill Belichick and has a career year a record setting year with Tom. Brady Brady threw for fifty touchdown passes does that offense was just a cold plays away from being the first team to go perfect nineteen in Oh as they were trying to catch the seventy two dolphins they lose of of course the super bowl to the tremendous comeback led by Eli Manning and the New York giants. Is this going to be just like that. Are we gonNA see a patriots team. That could possibly go undefeated after Sunday night. That's a very real possibility that defense for the Patriots absolutely shut down the steelers and and if they know they're gonna get just a boatload of points on the offensive side of the ball you know Bill Belichick GonNa give all of his time and effort to making sure that that defense is ready eighty each and every week for their match. Make sure everyone's healthy ready to go that the scheme is right and we very well could see a run at history again in New England might right sound a bit presumptuous just in week one but the steelers are a classic. AFC favorite especially when they had the big three Bell Brown and Rothlisburger now with two of those three pieces Gone Smith Schuster looks to pick up the slack for Antonio Brown but now yet to find someone to pick up the slack for Juju at that wide receivers Chris to spot you also gotta be be frank here that James Connor is not living on bell. We saw that in that game Sunday night so the steelers were still a good test defensively civilly always are fantastic and brady made them just look like a peewee football team out there as he had no problem going for thirty three points in that game and pass over three hundred honored yards. You put a be in that mix with Josh Gordon Julian Edelman the running back tandem of James White as well as Sony Michelle is going to be a really tough challenge to beat this patriots team and because of that you who who's to say I mean they they could do it. They could do it you. You can't say they can't there. There is a real world possibility with the addition of Antonio Brown that the Patriots could make some history but now we gotta look back at how this came to be an Antonio oneal brown you could tell really from the Gecko once he got into camp once he started running some routes with Derek Carr in this raiders offense something clicked in his head that he did not want. I WANNA be in Oakland. I mean he did the cryotherapy happens and you chalk that up to operator malfunction with the frostbite on the feet then he goes on this insane escapade with the helmet trying to get all that taken care of in think in trying to use his old helmet. He's used forever he. He's had six months to do it and he doesn't think that's enough time to find a new helmet. I mean he's not looking for new kidney. He just needs a helmet you. There's ways to figure that out to make it fit and make it. It'd be comfortable everyone else in the NFL did it why couldn't he that becomes an issue. He's stays out of training camp. He doesn't do the walk throughs. The helmet issue did not mean he couldn't couldn't practice with the team he did that on his own accord and then he goes after the general manager of the raiders after he gets fine for actions he knows our final. He did them with that in mind. There wasn't like that fine just came out of the sky on him and Mike mayock gets verbally costed by Antonio Brown he goes on a barrage. I use of slayer of slurs cuss words to Mike May Auchan your raiders still still planned on playing him in there Monday night game against the broncos broncos that says a lot about the raiders as an organization that they were willing to take this abuse from Antonio Brown and take all this Prima Donna behavior behavior that was happening with Ab and still play him Monday night when he's barely practice with the team we talked earlier in the season here here on this show about how Antonio Brown by taking all this media attention has helped the raiders rookies developed because they haven't had to deal with it and that's still true in the lot of the raiders rookies have talked talked about in themselves and the second year players have said by having Antonio Brown. It's been nice that they haven't had to deal with the media coverage and hard knocks and that was really a lot more centered around Antonio Brown but he's also had a terrible example as an a way to conduct yourself as professional with what he's done with the raiders clearly didn't want to be there show the the reaction video when he finally gets released from the raiders and all of that finally goes down and I think the raiders are better off for it you if you're going to establish a new culture in Oakland. You can't have this going on in your locker room on your sideline. You need to get Antonio Brown out of out of there if he wants out all the better let him go you cut your losses just saved a lot of money by voting that twenty nine million that you would yet. You'RE GONNA pay him over the three years Antonio Brown you get your wish you go you get to play for the Patriots I think both sides can kind of wash their hands of the issue but now the rest of the NFL has to deal with the Patriots and Tom Brady having Tony Brown as viable and very real. You'll weapon for them
An Interview With Actor and NFL Veteran Anthony Alabi
"My next. Guest is an actor writer and a former n._f._l. Player and he's been talented at all three. His name. Is anthony lobby anthony. Thank thank you for being on the show today.

I'm glad i'm the podcast you the podcasts at least at least what you tell me so. I don't know where to start here. So as you're growing up right you grow up and seeing antonio oneal dad. Has this like love of of movies and is that where you pick it up from my dad is my parents foreign so my dad is nigerian. My mother is puerto rican and so my dad a lot of time to connect to american culture he watch movies and so he would take us to the theaters on sunday to the theater on sundays and what would happen is we'd say they're basically from my. I don't know nine or ten in the morning until like eight thirty nine o'clock tonight. Why and watch just watch like three or four movies. And of course i loved it because of the fact that you know i wanted to be everything i saw aw and i think one of the times we went. I either had enough of it or he was just like let me tell let me let him in on this but he was like you know what you can be all of those things. If you're an actor and i was like what's that he explained it and i ended up i lit up and it was from that moment on. It was like all i wanted to do. Is there a particular movie or actor anthony that you see in your like like you know what that's the one or this is the movie that i has really ignited that flame in me to to want to be go into acting yeah you know honestly there wasn't one significant thing one memory i do have <hes> and it's still one of the first time when i was kind of told what an actor was was. I remember watching this and i'm sure now. It's like the cheesy lifetime movie as a kid of the hank gathers story. Do you remember this. I do yeah yeah eh loyola marymount right. That's right yeah. That's the first my her that school and like he he died of heart heart condition and i remember i cried so hard because sounds like wow that guy's dead and and i was so scared like not scared but more just like i felt so bad that he was gone. My parents were like it's okay like he's fine in real life i was like what are you talking talking about. He just died and that was another instance where they were like. No no no he was acting and i was like what was i remember. I told you actors look and they showed me a movie with that same actor in something else and i was like oh my god and i think that for me that has always kind of been burned into my head as being something like that one what do that. I want to move people like that and it's almost like a bryan song right. We're yeah. It's definitely acting portraying somebody. That's very very real and right yeah. That's a great. I never would have expected that. I mean that's a pretty great. That's a powerful answer man. That's that's a little. That's a little more than acting. That's just really being moved but not only a person but certainly only your love of acting yeah and for me i just i loved the idea that you can move someone and that you can kind of change people's perceptions and just the power our that the art. Has you know what i mean and i fell in love with it anyway <hes> so i have to say. I want to come back to acting obviously but we got to start off at the beginning so i thought i read this. If i'm wrong. Please correct me at anytime you and yet you attended the naval academy. Is that correct i did. Yes well one that super hard to get into and it's one of the if it's on par with harvard for those of you listening that don't know it is. I'm you have to get a letter from what like a representative or congressman again. You're being person yeah yeah. There's two ways to get you need to be appointed or you can be kind of i forgot the name of it but recommended basically so by by congressman and then it's put put to a vote and it's very difficult process. I was appointed <hes> and <hes> you gotta think football for that but yeah they appointed me to the naval academy and i and and i you know i ended up going for about a semester i think i i went and i love and the worst thing you didn't like. The military's actually loved it. I'm super structured sure. I'm very type a. so i loved that part of it for me just kind of tying it into football. The thing that i didn't agree with was just that you know at navy they're passionate about beating army and that was everything you know and i appreciated it and i love the pageantry of it but i just didn't feel like anything anything like the other games whereas significant you know what i mean so they went one in twelve and beat army was a winning season. You know what i mean. I just you know overall it just did the wasn't there and so that's when i transferred and walked on at t._c._u. Yeah that's a very complex situation at navy it. It's definitely a an honor to go there and to be there but yeah. I mean you kind of want for sports. Perspective bigger things and t._c._u. Is certainly that right. I mean that is a hop and yeah i think when i got there they had just kind of gotten to that point where they were getting national recognition as as a top tier you know what i mean yeah yeah and then you drafted by the dolphins you play for nick sabin talk about him a little bit anthony. Was he tough to play for. I mean you get the is very rigid at the naval academy. I would imagine the life in general right. I got the feeling that that's kind of nick sabin but just the football version of that absolutely you know nick is when he drafted me you know he's very straightforward straight forward and and he is a funny guy. That's thank you realize he's actually really funny but he's very he's very serious about football. He knows football. He's he's a genius sat. It and he's not what you would call it. A players coach and i know that that kind of new movement not new but the movement for the past few years in the n._f._l. Or decade or so as been this claire coach thing which is worked out because i think when you get into the n._f._l. You deal with egos. You guys have bank accounts and kids and i think you get to that point you. You can't really throw a dictatorship at them. You know what i mean. So i think that nick sabin he was though he's an excellent coach and he's phenomenal what he does. I think it was very tough for him kind of being in the n._f._l. Because you can't you can't just kind of rule over everybody the way you do in college you know in college. Those kids are looking to take take them to the promised land now. Whether that's a national championship or getting drafted you can get them. There and you've been there so they listened to. They hang on your every word in the n._f._l. You can't necessarily thoroughly do that because these are grown men. You know what i mean and so i remember i remember story particularly where we lost a game pretty badly and it goes to the front of the room and he goes now. You guys don't start doing what i tell you to do. I'm gonna whoop you look my kids and obviously he was kidding but he just kind of he was so upset and he let that out and i remember vonnie holliday who was a defensive tackle. At the time six foot six long arms built like superman he stood up and he goes a nick back when you come and try on what me and i remember going all right vanni we all right. What i'm saying is the point. Is you know and so i think i think that's kind of thing but overall. He's a great guy. I always had a great relationship with him. He's very intense about football which makes him so good at his job but it was a different. It was a different beast. I think being in the n._f._l. And i think where he where he is now is the perfect place for him to be. I think you know they eat breathe and sleep football. Uh and i think that's where he should be yeah. He's licking icon down there absolutely here yeah so. I have to ask you because i do live in massachusetts. It's on forty five minutes away from right so boy okay so you play for miami or the senior in the a._f._c. Straight talk about i mean there just seems to me a universal hate for the because they win but for for tom brady and belle attack. What's your purse. I mean you. You have a unique experience. Here's where you can comment because you've played against them. You've had background. What's your take on that whole thing their dominance lately a lot lately but for a long period of time to start this answer with the fact that my wife is from boston ace so i have to hear from in-laws laws constantly but that being said we played them twice a year. I personally don't like new england win the patriots but not for the reasons that everybody else i played against them so when at in the era that i was playing i didn't like the players played against us. Because i you know and please don't confuse it with respect. I respect that team and i respect those players. I don't like the players that played against because of the way they played and they did certain things and that's just more or inside baseball. It's like little things that are like you know considered like upstanding or norms in football that they broke just to kind of be jerks. You know what i mean like pushing a guy over a pile or being a prick about something but other than that the team itself the reason why they get hated on is because they're so good right and they're good because bill check is honestly that guy's a genius and what he does and the systems they have in place. It's built on it's built on teamwork and it's built on the system. Not the players were and that's why why win. Tom brady goes down as wonderful fantastic as is someone like jimmy. Garoppolo or or the other guy could jump in there and function
"oneal" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"Around eight Oneal tendon in his right ankle a lot of talk about him wearing high top I feel like it was palpable within the story is he not fifteen weather and the question is is at the Marc Cain itself they're shooting into that ankle of blood from the shop while the drama was just unbelievable because very is playing for the red Sox with the red Sox you know fighting through the pain felt when them a World Series and you know here's the thing so he was talking he sent email to the to the Republic by the way the Republic says that showing is in Arizona native not true he actually was born in anchorage Alaska his dad was in the in the army for a number of years so he we was army brat moved around a lot but he he moved here he's kinda in Arizona native in the sense that I mean I'm not I wasn't born here but when I moved here to school kids Jamie is actually a native born here yeah yeah I just got soon as I could and I so I don't get I don't fault Kurt shilling for read only these not a carpet bagger if he comes back to the state that he really essentially grew up in with the shadow mountain high school and all that right but the question is which district will he run in some people said and Kirkpatrick's district but that's to sun one two sun still care about the World Series from eighteen years ago nineteen years ago I don't I don't know because that was played here right I'm thinking if he's gonna pick it a bluish district he's going to go up against Greg Stanton who is of course the former mayor of Phoenix and is now serving the district accused in cinema vacated when she ran for the Senate successfully that disturbed by the way though it might not be the best four of a staunch conservative like showing has turned out to be to running because it's so evenly split among Republicans and Democrats and independents you really have to be a moderate not that I think Greg Stanton is a moderate but the I think you know and he leaves definitely is pretty far to the left but I don't know if that's a winnable for Curt Schilling so I think after he has if you talk to some people I think he may come back here but I don't think he's gonna come back here and run for Congress I I really don't it's five forty eight now that K. T. A. R. but it's fun to talk about it I mean I love talking about anytime we can talk about the.
