Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations
"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name

Hold me like you need to start doing so i would start doing it. And then after a while it really did feel like it was counry really did feel on getting strang. The same thing was going to church participating at a regular church. Unity a i. I just felt so awkward. You know and then like after a while you realize okay.

Why SMS Marketing Works
"Is the founder of converse smart. He is served in the us army. He's a smart guy. He knows more about sms. Marketing than anyone else. I know and so what i did. I posted on my facebook group. And i said hey. What are your questions. And i got a whole list. Great questions here to ask him. But the thing i want to start with ari is the the fudd around. Sms fear uncertainty in doubt. People are well merchants anyway. Seem terrified of s marketing. But like don't think twice about sending an email blast to got an email list right at least based on the sheer number of newsletters. I know i didn't sign up for but still somehow am on but s. They're afraid of it. So someone The question i want to open with you acuna. Hurry is a gentleman who said. I don't do any sms marketing presently because personally hate it as a consumer. But that's really the only research i've done it. I find it incredibly intrusive and kurt. Gosh this poor man. And so what he that was his. That was a setup. He's tortured by sms. text him. he'd like just wants to die and his name is jeff and his question there is are there any stats tracked about loss of customer finicky. Like fewer repeat orders unsubscribe. It seems like the financial is there in the short term. But i worry about the long term loss of goodwill. Please put this to rest. Yes let's do it so first of all. Thank you for having me on your podcast. Super excited to talk about sms out and this is one of the things that i hear all the time so every time i talked to marketers. Either someone is really pro. S other really against sms. That's kind of what we've seen Talking to many direct consumer e commerce marketers or people have received calls from telemarketers. Sean sell them something. So people are very reluctant to give away their phone numbers so a lot of the time as more of like a personal thing where people have had that experience like. We've all experienced. As i remember when i was in new york and got like a puppy like ten different messages from president trump. I never remember ever opting in for any presidential campaigns ever. But i guy like ten for once So this is probably like people who have experienced things like this and they never like ogden. So it's like okay like them. Doing it now feels like they're kind of like doing what the spammers are doing. Like you said it's the same people who would go and email a full list That probably opt in. That are still scared of sending those messages out via texts. But the thing is we've done the research we have tons of data on it We've lunch twenty twenty state of text marketing report. Move lot of information and what we found out is that there is no reason for someone to be scared of texts marketing. And here's why. The average consumer spending more and more time on their mobile device over ninety percent of americans can be reached via text and demographic demographics between ages of eighteen and sixty two prefer text over any other communication method. And if you really think about it when we communicate with friends family coworkers. Use messaging apps. Right and sms is probably one of the primary use and it doesn't matter who it is. Everybody opens or text message like obscene. Like people who have never like open their emails but when it comes to tax they always open every single text message. And that's the first thing that we need to know. That consumers are on that channel and the thing about marketing is that like businesses have to go where the consumer is at so. It's the same thing here where personally you might think that may not work or it's invading and no one should ever sign up for it but the data shows otherwise the consumer are signing up to get these text messages. They're receiving text messages. From presidential campaigns two factor authentication order delivery confirmations customer service
Just What is Going on at the Esports Stadium Arlington?
"Sports stadium in Arlington is the largest Esports arena in North America this week. They laid off almost all their employees including former president. Jonathan Ogden Josh. Whose been at the Helm of the company for the past few years made it clear. There was plenty of discontent behind the scenes. He tweeted quote would love to talk about what's happened a t Sports stadium and my fears what will happen with the new Direction off all the details but need to tread lightly from a legal perspective and quote in other tweets. He makes it even more clear that the exit wasn't pretty and that the new leadership represents a drastic change from the team driving the stage over the last few years. The new president will be luke Bauer Bauer doesn't have much experience in E Sports at all. Jacob Wolfe tweeted yesterday quote Bauer is a 2020 University of North Palm. Just graduate and Linkedin shows experience running a pressure washing company power is a friend of Luke lights means and quote. Luke is the other figure involved with the company and he's a bit controversial Thousand Years. Apparently the grandson of Ray Davis a majority shareholder of the Texas Rangers who helped launch the venue according to Woolf the current CEO of Esports Arena Arlington is Neil Lyman a minority shareholder for the Rangers. And if that name doesn't ring a bell, here's a refresher Infiniti sports and entertainment. That's the company that bought optic gaming back in 2017 and made an absolute mess of it before selling it off to a mortal's about two years later. Now, it seems like Neil is taking another popular is Esports institution run by a gaming veteran and moving it in a direction of wage earner nepotism Bauer didn't interview with Kevin hit at the Esports Observer, which I will link below in it hit questions Bauer about an odd tweet from Luke leitzman lights been again appears to be Bridge between Bauer and the Texas Rangers owners who are making the decisions here lights been tweeted and then deleted e Sports Stadium Arlington will not at any time require requests or inquire about the vaccination record of anyone. I will be buried in the ground before this changes. That's just an odd statement to make from a public health perspective, especially as venues have been one of the hardest-hit industries by the covid-19. Demek Bauer claims lights been does not have the authority to make that call but his entire page was wild with feared claims. And now as I searched for it today does not exist. So weitzman's actual role at the company is not clear whatsoever. Jonathan quotes who did the article and said there is much much more to this and is in no way being transcribed fully booked. It's not a fault of hit. Of course. It's a fault of Bauer who just is not going to provide the full situation. We likely won't know the full story until Jonathan's NDA expires, but for now given meals poor history. Use words to say the least. We certainly aren't going to give him the benefit of the doubt here.
The Latest News On The War In Yemen
"War in yemen has been one of the grimmer stories unfolding anywhere on earth for roughly six years now for most of that time it has struggled fool widespread and much more so this year as the rest of the world was preoccupied with the obvious. One of the reasons that yemen has been under reported is that it has been difficult and dangerous to report from monocle. Twenty-fourth beirut correspondent. Leyla moulana alone has recently been to yemen and joins me now a layla. First of all the logistics at this point of getting in and out of yemen. How do you do it. The logistics arch freaky and there are multiple ways now. there awesome flights operating into yemen. And on the way in the way it was done. was through cairo's flying into cairo. And then going into an applet. Who'd you in the south now the flights of neuron a few times a week. They don't necessarily ron time. All hugely overbooked. Of course with people want to go on another extremely expensive as what happened with us. Was that when we lost one can can you then looking out as well because these flights are constantly moving. So it's very unsure when you go in how exactly oh gutting be able to get out and in all case We had to change into a land route option and dry options country which took days because the flights simply went operational on the way out so not necessarily the stable of travel. Itinerary will clearly once in yemen which parts of it. Were you actually able to see so. I was in shabwah. Governorate which is in the south is traditionally very Very tribal governor. At and at the moment it's now the only southern governor this fact compete under the control of the central government it was until the end of two thousand and nineteen ponti occupied by the some transitional council which is the nutritional southern separatists of southern yemen. But they were pushed out at the end of two thousand and nineteen alongside the shabani elite forces which were essentially local mercenaries hired and backed by the united arab emirates. Who of fighting that. They had been fighting against al qaeda terrorists forces that they will push out the two thousand eighteen so it is now backsitting under government control but of course at still a lot of controls over the different parties that some things. That isn't the right decision. So in that part of yemen is life relatively stable and peaceful on the one hand is driving around the capital city act. They're all going up. There are shop opening people walking around. That does seem to be a bishop. Prosperity come back and stuff. People was antony there were jobs hidden now. We can't find jobs in other areas with coming his to work so in on that side of things know that building tourist complex building hotels that very hopeful that the level of stability having now even things like went scoreless Address the that level of civility means that they will have increasing prosperity. The problem of course is firstly that the country as many said to me is still seen as water but also there are a lot of problems with stability they currently have posited is because there is oil. it's one of the three governorates that has a lot of oil in yemen and the governor has made a deal with the central government that they get a twenty percent cut. That goes straight to the governor at so they can invest in rebuilding infrastructure analytical houses in the governor at. That's a great deal. But a lot of people in southfield they should be getting even more not so much of it should be going to the central government that trying to encourage more western oil companies to come back in as also lots of liquid natural gas that the moment there is just one australian oil company functioning on The moment there is just one austrian oil company who is currently can shop. Hope that increase was fired. You enjoy -tunities Very unstable as i say with the political situation still going around. They're all active. Frontlines from the nearest one is in marriage to the north. That's fine with the season is also still frontlines. The southern traditional council as well given everything you've said about life in shaw born those soins reasonably encouraging signs of some sort of return to normality. Does it feel like the government is itself a self contained country at this point. Is there much talk about trying to put yemen back together. So this is the big question with some people are saying shove what is the example of how of federalist yemen could work. You know in which the different governorates level tournament. A certain amount of money to run that own concerns are loyal to a central government and of course contribute troops to a central government. Which is what's currently happening. Lots of shift one young men going and fighting own the nearest frontline that the government has up in a way in tons for its relationship that they have on say. The governor is a loyal to central. Government has a good working relationship barron which she has been given this level of autonomous theoretically that is hopeful future. The problem is that people are fighting for different reasons. This is something people kept saying to me that you know there are some people who had the interest of the money interest of the oil. The pool of calls many people saying that the uae and the arabia of that those reasons. But then you've got some transitional council bay come from a long line of people who believe that the south of the. Nfl is completely different from the nose. Should be united and shouldn't be wrong from the north which causes where at the central government is based although i should say that most of the people who make up the central government actually are outside the country right now because he ended so constantly moving on stable But seth me they're southerners new feel wouldn't at shouldn't be enrolled in the as the south bend. Of course you have. The who fees. Who are the shiite iran backed militia. Who are still fighting in. How occupied a lot of the north of the moment. They are running at sanaa city at the moment still and they of course flight final ideology and copy one of my money as many people said to me that it's not just about these business relationships on the national resources so while the idea the united yemen too. Many people is hugely appealing. And so many people that saying can you with retired war. We want peace. We want elections. We just want to get on with our lives and have yemen stop being associated with the idea of this ongoing horrific war which the united nations is called the greatest humanitarian crisis currently in the world but whether or not that's realistic the number of political issues currently butting up against each other both in tunnel and the proxy wars being fooled by international powers is is another question is obviously not short of problems but it was also burden this year as every country on earth walls by the covid nineteen pandemic. Were you able to get much sense of how that has affected life in yemen or how yemen with the resources it has has been able to handle it so the area i was in has extreme yellow covid figures at least in tons of what's being counted now going in i thought perhaps they simply aren't being counted all covered up in some way. One of the arguments is of course. It doesn't really make sense for the government to be covering up coach. Vic is because it's one way of them getting access to aid. Amy because so much aid money to other projects has been coastal this year because it will bring directed towards codex but in the area. I was in shock whistle. The numbers are extremely loads. They do have a new testing center in the capital of. Its just couple of months old. That's incompletely funded and built by the saudis very center. It isn't getting much use because they don't seem to be that many people coming in now elsewhere in yemen. The problem has been much worse. Part of the reason might be that there is not that much movement in the south. Where's the north in ogden. In saana a further away from that is a lot of moving there and we. Stephanie seen horrific numbers of people really struggling particularly ibp comps. Where who's it spreads wildfire. Now i did meet with several people who said that in the prisons. The situation is getting much worse as well. I spoke a couple of prisoners families who said that they the dominant co code in prison and the conditions were horrendous. They were not being freed Unlike many prisons seeing around the world who've been given a thorough from prison while the coronavirus has been spreading shouts great concern. The big problem really is as i say. That was not much of it to be seen at the moment. But the very worried about Of course we know that in the summer does seeing that the transmission. I'll in the winter. Once that construe immune systems are the health service simply The local hospital is absolutely overwhelmed. Ready mary i was having a den. Gay deng massive outbreak which is affecting a lot of young children in particular from the rural areas. You have to travel hundreds of kilometers to get to the hospital. So although right now where i was as i say not that big a problem if it does hit in the winter and docs saying they're concerned about that. It would be really really devastating.

Google's Opt-in is a sham
"To opt in or not. How real is that opt in offer. You realize what you're opting in four. I'm jefferson graham. I've got some thoughts on this. You're listening to talking tech to plug the new pay app from google. Google is encouraging people to try it out and let google monitor your finances and purchases in exchange for personalize offers that it says you must opt in four so if google knows that you eat at burger king he could hit you up with specific burger king offers as opposed to generic restaurant deals in your neighborhood. But didn't know is that people are wary about giving google yet another license to track our every movement as it already does with maps youtube viewing searches and the like. It knows where you go what you watch who you spend time with what stores you drive to and more now. How do you feel about google tracking your purchases so in announcing the new program. Google said this paper civilization feature was opt in and offered a three month trial to give it a try quote at the end of three months. You can decide if you want to keep it on her off unquote. That's what google says and it sounds great right google's putting the decision in your reality check time. Most people won't even know what they signed up for the lettering as tiny is just another window of user agreements. That people's zip right through the turn on page is just one of many pages. Consumers will see when they download the new app and quickly as they always do to say yes to everything. The first thing. Google s is if could use your phone number as identification to introduce yourself to your friends on the new app which has been registered as part mo part quicken part apple pay of vehicle to tap and pay retail split pizzas with friends and monitor your finances so google needs identification is share with friends. I get it next. Earn rewards when you pay discounts and prizes are always welcome. Then the big one turn on personalization within google pay this is in big type but underneath in very small type you see there are the most relevant offers some stores and get recommendations for ways to save. Now here's the ogden quote. If you turn on personalization within google pay this data and additional info like the location where you made a purchase will also be saved in used to personalize your google experience you can also try the setting only for three months unquote consumers are then told they can go to their google account to turn it back and stop the ads. Once they've accepted good luck finding the place to disconnect so the new google pay app.
Repurposed Content Can Increase Your Traffic 300%
"This is John Jansen. My guest today is Shayna wide singer. She is the founder and CEO of business called re. Purpose House. So Shayna thanks for joining me. Hey, thanks for having me John. So what did you do before repurpose repurposes actually fairly new business so was so give us your your your concise history to this point. Yeah, you got it. Well, I mean my back on video production and post production. So I was the only person in the household do how to use the video camera when I was like eleven. So I made a lot of fun awesome little videos not knowing that that would be what my path was actually later in life so I went to school for films at all of that I ended up landing a GIG. Doing some freelance work for a business coach I was doing some branding stuff for him some marketing, a lot of video production, and we were at the infusion soft conference that year it was two, thousand fourteen when it was in Phoenix and. We were kind of trying to make a big deal of his. How do you make a big deal out of business coaches booth, right? So we were running around with cameras and lights and big obnoxious and So many people kept coming up to me asking me about. For their businesses. And I kept hearing the same to pinpoints and it was either they had done. It was so expensive and they didn't see an Roi on five figures for one video right and they put it on Youtube one time and expected it to get a million heads. Or they had like their friends brother's nephew had movie and they did it on the cheap and didn't get anything out of it, and so I saw like a really big need for strategic video production for video marketing in general, and so I got really used to telling people know because they'd come to me and be like we want this massively long awesome video. Great. We are going to be like, no, because nobody cares about that. Let's get them to see content that gets them to care, and then also we'll tell them about who you are but. So in that whole. Capacity I ended up later doing a lot of video podcasts with clients. So we would you every month they come in studio with we'd sit him down. We'd interview and stuff and these little repurpose assets were part of that package, and so when I started to try to sell this video podcasting thing to existing podcasters, they'd be like we don't care about any of the other stuff we just want the assets like it you've made. The little square video mean with the captions and the whole thing we would throw our money at you and so I realized that that was not something that anybody just did like there's platforms you can get yourself that are awesome like headliner and stuff, and then there's like full-scale agencies where you're paying thousands and thousands of dollars for that in addition to other services. But nothing that was like a product is service that was niche. Niche Niche never really know which one it is. But so that's how kind of purpose house was born out of just seeing that there was a need afternoon after need and filling it. Could. After this knit. Niche. I got to know him for us at Jeffer- Gif Okay because that's a lot about you too. So Sake gift but I hear Jif but I just can't bring myself to use it. It is a millennial thing. Quite frankly because that terms been around forever and I know, I remember when I used to I used to say, say gift to my kids they like, what are you talking about like Oh that's what we call it. So. So I'm glad you started with video because. You know as you talk about on your website and I've talked about this for years you know content. finally realize we have to have it, but it's probably the hardest thing to create even even with the promise of such high Roi. and. So I've always told him a lot of times start with video just record a whole bunch of video because that's the easiest thing to repurpose you turn your. PODCAST you can turn it into a blog post if you want. So you know how I mean how you? How you approach just the the entire repurposing strategy. You know when you're talking to somebody because I mean obviously part of the promise of repurposing is you're GonNa get more for what you already got. So you know how do you look at that as a strategy for? So, for those who already have an existing well of content I like to dive into. Let's talk about the content that you have. You don't realize can be re purposed right. So blog post you can turn those into video. We'll take to one hundred words of a blog post. Make it a cool text motion style video those goal cast videos and then now that's an optimized video that's repurpose you send them back to your blog posts. So you hopefully Lee Jenner Ogden something there. But you can get like out of a good blog post at least three small repurpose assets for all of the social media channels with a good call to action. Also, you want to get them off of the social media platform.

"And then I just took that leverage it kept going kept going and the last four years. I guess that's now going on four and half years. I've worked for Seventeen fortune five hundred companies. I've worked for the 17 10 or Fortune 100. I do Keno speaking coaching Consulting a two-time best-selling offer. I've written, you know, different programs and procedures and policies for clients do Consulting and I'm very fortunate to have a phenomenal team around me of exceptionally bright individuals who do a great job of what they do, but really and truly it all start with the first facet of I had to own the mistakes that I made with my business and that's when it really start to get better for me. Well his name what I loved the story Marcus by the way, it's we're talking to Marcus Ogden book entitled the success cycle. Have not gone into the success cycle. We just got through the back story. There's a couple of things I want to kind of throw in the back story. They made me chuckle. Okay, I I mean listen, the story is the story is absolutely phenomenal right that okay the sour milk moment. I think one of the things I want to go back in the sour milk moment is you say I think everybody has that moment at some point in your life and you you say, know what I cried but I am crying because I was a custodian I was crying because I knew that this was not the story. That this was not my story right? This was at the end of it. I thought that that was so powerful Marcus because I think people get stuck because they feel like this is their story. But it took it that one incident for you. Really really broke you and I think sometimes I've been broken more than once where I've had to have my prior ego just literally the rug had to be pulled out from underneath. My probably go got out of control. I think I think the thing is for so many people then understand that in order to be used mightily we have to be broken greatly. And and I think it's a powerful moment for us to be I mean, right cuz that really was a pivotal moment for you. Absolutely and without that moment. I'm not here today because I don't really believe I would have ever woken up and said enough is enough. You're the one that made the mistake. I would have kept playing the victim role the blame game the past the game I can tell my clients when they work with people who don't want to own their mistakes. I called the pass the buck game from April 2013 until September 2013. That's all I did. passed the buck. I bought and business partner developer contractor employees. They that's what it was and that's what I did and it was the point where I was just so tired of trying to figure out what went wrong with other people and I looked at myself first finally. I called the inside to outside Theory cuz most people go outside then look inside second. I looked inside. First went outside second and I realized that I was the problem. I was the one with the mistakes. I was the one who didn't do what he needed to do as a result of that. That's when I got things more live. But yes, absolutely without that custodian job and that spoiled milk moment September 2013. There's absolutely no way I would ever be where I'm at today. Just walk away.

I think it's really important that we talk about the back story because you've divided this book up into parts and then chapters Thursday and part one, which is the life-changing moment. And of course chapter one is the backstory. I think it's really important that people understand the back story of how they you basically come up with this success cycle and one of the one statistics that you quote and then I'll let you tell the story is that seventy percent of NFL players go bankrupt within two years of ritaj. But and that's on page four of the book. I mean right away you hit us with that. So what's Marcus's story that gets us to eventually the success cycle.

The Most Successful Cold Email Eric Has Ever Written
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them. To a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream. Host DOT COM slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to eight other episode of marketing. Skoll I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about the most successful cold email that we've written so I think a while back we've talked about the nine word email. This is from a copywriter named Dean Jackson. He's legendary in many circles. So the nine word emails basically this. Let's say I sell houses and Neil often to my list. Neal's not ready to buy a house necessarily but he just likes my website. 'cause I have the best houses in Beverly Hills or something so you know maybe six months down the road I might send Neil evil might hit my entire emails Neil. Are you still interested in a home in Beverly Hills right? That's not necessarily nine words. It's roughly nine words. But it's a very simple email that you can send to your list and it drives engagement because you're evoking curiosity kind of the point last episode that we did but it's also interesting and then also you got to keep in mind that people are not necessarily ready to buy immediately when the Ogden fearless but maybe later the timing might be right so you send us every could be every quarter could be every six months or so and I cannot. I mean doing this for our mastermind. That's worked well. It's gotten across a couple of mastermind people for growth accelerator. I've done this for phone. Calls for the agency phone calls for our agency accelerator program. It just works really well at. It's so simple. Most people tend to over complicate their emails too much. Some of my most accessible emails have been through using this my most successful cold emails were emailing the CEO of large corporations some publicly traded. First off you can google and find their email right. There's a lot of tools like violent norbert or hunter dot. Io where you can try to find the email addresses and email like. Hey John and a really super busy you can forward this to your CMO or whatever department trying to get a hold of. That'd be great. I've away to boost your sales or boost your traffic by X. Y. and Z. percent. I won't bore you with the details. Hope you're having a wonderful day cheers. Neil and I don't know this person but a lot of times they'll actually forward it is what. Ceo doesn't want more traffic or more revenue or sales. And they don't want to deal with this littler team deal with it and when they forwarded over people assume that you know the CEO. I never said I did. But people assume and you have their engagement. And in many cases they convert into paying customers. Oops screwed up. It's a cold email might tipples for warm evils but cold email. I actually remember email that Neil an i. We worked on this for a little bit. We hit up Zingo. When are getting into poker and the key thing here is when you reach out to the Sea. You keep it brief. We kept very brief like. Hey we've actually been in his face before we know how this all works and then basically what happened was CEO for the this to the leaders at the time for people that are trying to push the online poker Ford unfortunately they scrapped the plans for that. But Neil and I. We did get deepening conversations. And we've done this in the past. You just find out what the people are interested in. Neil you reached out to someone that was kind of going through a scandal and discuss a billionaire. And you got that person to respond yet. It's all about what angle can you end up playing? And if you can leverage angle or pain point in most cases you get people to respond. The other cold emails to his people who are doing
"Hello Hello Welcome to sheep. I guess I am just a cup for many of you are watching or listening for the first time. That's me this. Is She podcast? Episode to sixty four with my co-host. Lc as Khobar and our producer. John Jim Ingo. How are you guys doing today? Not to ridicule any news whatsoever about anything at all. I mean podcasting but like other like personal stuff. Well Easter was exciting. I did a drive by dinner. How while because I went to my ex this house and then because I'm not going in because they go to work and everything they brought dinner out so the kind of we set like six feet apart and they talked and I had dinner and it was weird. It was really weird. Bonnie says it's a facebook privacy thing about stream yard. They can't see your name unless you grant them permission right and I guess people just don't do it right so no or do they want in that point. A lot of them don't wanted grant permission right so but see. This is a facebook private group so we can see them in here anyhow. This isn't GonNa go. This video is not going anywhere I get it. It's not a big deal. Oh so elsie. So yes Jessica and I figured out something today that I can't believe I didn't think of this. Oh God Jessica has the adobe suite so she has adobe audition okay so one of the things. We've always had problems with his she uses quicktime and some so. She has adobe audition she can record right into addition and we've never used it in two hundred sixty four episodes. Why is that that is so card yet? Dum Dum Dum Dorky. It's Kinda Dorky. Right Kinda dark. You must have known that I've had it though right. No I wouldn't have put to do together because the thing is though just you wanted to break up with adobe suite so many separate times true and not one of the Times that. We've had a discussion about your break-up the possible break-up with adobe suite has audition ever come into the conversation that's never part of your everyday. It's just you know photoshop. Right so we use that to record her instead of quicktime and it would be so much easier and so much better and we would always know that the Mike correctly picked all the good stuff. I am so happy. Yes and we can also add to the track. We can also add compression because just could really her voice can really use compression so that you can do all of that. Pre like Yes prefixed prefixed. For her right so right now on excited like like a kid right before. Christmas. Because I'm excited because when we get off here we're going to make an appointment. We're going to go through this thing. I'm sure there'll be a lot of yelling and hollering there. Yes probably I noticed that I do have an issue when I'm trying to describe and do things when I can't see. It frustrates me when I can't see the other person's what they're doing. It frustrates me and I've been doing a lot of that lately for different clients and stuff as they set up to record in their home. Oh okay yes I need. I need to calm down. I need to be able to breathe through that. I need some kind of yoga breathing. Technique to center my Chee. Said what are you Senator Senator? Something we can just give you just can send Isaac. I can send may May and you can get through them. Then you'll find yours end. You know it's like a living. We'll be like here deal with her for a bit and then leave work through. That had four under the age of four. I know but you haven't. When was the last time? Oh well that's true. This is what I'm saying. It's like there's a practice I know when I'm in I'm in my sixties or seventies and somebody tells me how to deal with a four year five eight year old. I'm not I'm not going to be adapted. I've been like you know. Been out of it for awhile. I'm over. Yeah it's like it's forgotten like I don't even want to think about when they were infants. I don't I know Yeah No. I don't really like the idea of taking my clients and comparing them to eight year old child. I just. That's not the way it is that feeling. Oh the tenseness in the chest and the tightening in the chest he so we have some like communications. Lets say why. Don't we just acknowledge the folks and just to let everybody know that we are as of now for the past few episodes? We as in the sheep. Podcast team has been recording directly into the sea. Podcast super squad. Which is our Patriot community. So you guys can kind of watch. Us Record live in there. We're going to do the show as always Joe.

She's asking him. What version of Stream Yard? We are using John. This question is for you. Well stream yards a web application. So you don't have to update it so I don't know what version I know what? She's talking about tiffany. You can only record stream yard if you're a pro client pay for that So in order for you to to be able to record and download your files you have to be if you are not a pro then all you can do is stream. So you have the capability to stream. I don't know how many hours for you know. I don't think anybody needs more hours to stream. But that those are all pro functionalities one of the things that Justin I also wanted to do was to do a double streaming stream to hear and to the podcast main group or to the podcast page. And we can't also can't do that unless you're pro so if you're a pro you can. I think you can Cross post to two places at once. We have done that and if we ask. Yeah have the option of two. Yeah Yeah if you're did you upgrade it Ogden profile? I've been down. No I know I know John Is. Yeah but you know I didn't know. Yeah Yeah you can only do the same time. Yeah no no basic no base. It used to be. I think way back right. John like right windstream yard. I started loud. Yeah they allow for yet when it was in. Beta. That's right. They did allow for for recording and downloading but once they opened it up. Then that's what you pay for. May GotTA STAY IN BUSINESS. Somehow and you want him to be able to stay in business. I mean it is an amazing platform. Yeah we're streaming. You know I'm telling you right now. Once they decide if they can record audio as separate separate tracks right they will be a force in podcasting. I don't know if they ever get there yet but still
How to Keep Going by Greg Audino on Resiliency & How To Build More Resilience In Your Life
"How to keep going by Greg Audino of Greg Ogden. Oh Dot Com. What is it that separates those who keep going from those who don't in times of hardship? How is it that some people find the motivation to continue on while others fall by the wayside and start on a new path a common hardship? That many people face is a lack of motivation. Easy to wish for a rush of motivation to just wash over US and breathe New Light into us but there are just a couple of problems with that. It takes a lot for us to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps in. Keep going a lot more than the self-help idiots who just yelled. Don't quit at us. Allow credit for while hard work is something that people very much pride themselves on especially in Modern Day. America does more a product of nurture than nature by nature. Our brains aren't conditioned seek out challenging ways of doing things they're conditioned to restore energy and seek out the easiest way of doing things as possible. Finding the motivation to get through challenging times requires a little extra. But what is that extra well? Let's lighten things up and talk about my very favorite subject for a second the puppies. How is it that we're able to train puppies? Who barely have any means of understanding us to perform certain tasks with as much precision as another human? Would there are two elements reward and repetition if you reward a puppy or any animal for that matter for performing any given task? There'll be more likely to repeat it because the associated with a reward the more times is repeated with the reward. The more simple task becomes for the puppy eventually becoming like second nature. The good news is that we have an awful lot in common with those cute little and one thing is that we speak and rely on universal language of reward and repetition. Every single thing we do is done because we believe that it's in our best interest. All Things considered there's nothing we don't do because we believe it will bring us some form of happiness wherever it may stem from for us to do anything at all. It's necessary for us to believe any reward on the other side. The more were given or reminded of this reward the more likely we are to repeat the behavior. Conversely the more the expected reward is not given to us the harder it is to have faith in its arrival and the less likely will be to maintain. The behavior does the point which many people who have lost their motivation find themselves. They've lost in the inspiration. Keep on trucking because the reward they once believed in seems to be going further out of sight. The big question then is how to combat this well. A lot of reward we seek is something that comes from. The outside is important to remember that even when outer awards are virtual lock. We only have so much control over them side note. It's also important to remember that over time are desired. Rewards may change for example. He may become a plastic surgeon because it pays well and a lot of people time. More money's more happiness you'll enjoy work and go to work dutifully as long as you're getting your expected paycheck but if the time comes when your happiness requires more than money say requires free time. You're working all hours of the day. You'll be less motivated by your job because is now interfering with your happiness. So what happens? In the event that we are not receiving the outer rewards we seek but we still believe in them enough to want to keep going. What do we do when we see the light at the end of the tunnel? But it's getting hard to keep climbing towards it make no mistake. This ideas applicable in a myriad of ways extends far beyond just jobs which seems like it might be easiest to associate this with. The key is to tune into other benefits. A lot of which may be intangible. It can be difficult for many of us to believe in or even be cognizant of intangible rewards but is essential in maintaining good habits. That haven't yet paid off in the ways you envision them paying off what does this look like. Let's use an example of someone who's running for political office which all tread carefully with considering. I'm pretty useless when it comes to politics. Running for office is a huge task. It takes a humongous amount of commitment and the end goal to be elected is pretty clear. Certainly at points the requires sacrifice stands a chance of wing down on the candidate making it difficult for them to keep pushing and ask themselves if it's really all worth it. At this point. The candidate has an option of redefining their definition of quote unquote winning. Even if they don't win the election. Is it not a win? To have engaged more with the community is not a win to have gained the trust of some potential voters. Is it not a win to pay more attention to and do more for those? Who are struggling. Visit not a win to have gained more knowledge about politics. Is He not a win? To have gained more understanding as to the stress. Those currently in office are under the list. Goes on and reframing one's mind to see winning from Wider Lens in this way is very much difference maker when it comes to retaining motivation and don't think for a second that this mindset isn't after the election if they've lost tour for you if whatever you wants to accomplish doesn't come to fruition in the way you thought it would in this way we see that redefining a win by seeking out smaller. More unique winds is also a means of both avoiding regret and gaining gratitude. So if you're struggling to keep going or you're reflecting on that which didn't go as planned. Take this time to ask yourself. What the rewards are that exists. Beyond that one. Hardy goal you envisioned

"Boulevard on Fremont in Ogden veggies the high history did were destroyed in traffic and ridiculous traffic so it's a phenomenal site is the center of the universe for downtown near napa says it wasn't meant to be what it was designed for I think it opened in two thousand two it was constructed with in year two thousand two thousand one and it was supposed to be there dumping grounds for the existing casinos because they didn't have any room for retail and other activities because they were older casinos in there just wasn't enough room because the market has changed from gaming into entertainment and attractions that something requires that a speech so Jan Jones idea was to create me Annapolis and say let's put up all the activities that casinos cannot put because of lack of space put that into one building and let's get let's call it the metropolis of neon lights and therefore the name neon novelist after opening it was owned by a prudential insurance company and half of the property was already leased to Jillian's and Ted men's T. actors Abby does do a tenor sign in for over a hundred and twenty thousand square feet was a half of the building so he got the loan from credentials to build this project his name with Jonathan Snowden very close friend of mine and we were both against each other to develop this property he won Richard Lee because after signing these do leases and he finished construction these two tenors went into bankruptcy so he had to get out and go to a edit out with the wrong falls to mine on signing tendons that are not capable of enjoying their longevity so with that stayed he just left because it was a non recourse loan left the city with a parking garage in a Odjick with potential and they called me there were these you see if I can come back but instead I suggested the Dick some of employees that could revised this project and they did there were two sisters Chantelle Stevens was her name and she occupied offices here and she least everything except that it was the a management agreement with all the tendons so that D. don't pay rent V. paid them salaries to continue to operate the business is a potential said that's not our business is nobody's business but that's the only way you could lease in downtown three two thousand seven and at that time there was nobody paying rent so when I walked in again a third time to buy the property I did bite ones but I had a dinner that was not acceptable to the city and to the law each and sees and because of that it be I backed off and couldn't do the dealer for for this project and after a year they came back to me offer me a better deal so I bought the property for whatever I can do create a magic by the way and I could not create a magic it was very difficult down times are difficult in this downtown especially was extra difficult for any developer to do anything because I know you really made some changes here though it's vibrant now I mean it was just a matter of getting the right people imagine was racing downstairs you you've got museum over it's kind of exciting in the woods told me that you've got like ninety five percent of this place went right and I think what we have to concentrate on was instead of retail like we're Jan Jones I've proposed V. changed and war different had which was primarily food beverage entertainment attractions so we created doors for the pillars of our building and stayed can we concentrate on that and the reason is because he bought it at a price that we could afford and staying with it for a long time he could have that luxury of saying let's just we didn't get the right to medical pros to what the project should be and converted into something could be a success story that could be repeated all over the country in urban settings so first thing we did was a food and beverage if you see the front the Fremont street view that Danny's and the heart attack grill the cost because the Mediterranean alternative and a Mexican Asian and Talian food court by international eatery goals for food purveyors four of them are doing so well that he pays off in rent all my expenses which really surprised me because it is not just a minimum red but also a percentage or and or whatever the cell in addition we got a phenomenal broody for the mini meals craft brewery and they've got a couple of things one is called jalapenos via another's color watermelon beer which is become a very famous people for the millennials in downtown and on the social media and I think that's the key social media started buzzing with this project on the interpreters and that brought more engine to our project in indebted we've got to tenants who are television celebrities from the pawn stars Iker Harrison who created this phenomenal project on television his toys appraiser and sports appraiser became at our tendons who are rock stars because everybody who comes to see Rick Harrison's former star and we met him and I created a project with Rick and ridge my two tendons to create a bus service between Rick Harrison wreak deal and you know and by doing that we are getting six hundred thousand people a day more with throw heat you know she's not just.

"A lot of times leading up to the holidays and the gatherings I know that you stress herself out and even for myself even with my relationships that are. I'd say pretty good and pretty healthy with my family even with that I get a little a bit stressed out to not so much because I'm afraid of having conflict or anything like that but just you know when there are a lot of people a lot of personalities and just a lot of things to do in a lot of things to accomplish. It can be a little bit stressful and for those of you out there. That do have some difficult dynamics in your family. I know it can also be incredibly stressful. And I'm sure even more stressful than it is for me so the first tip that I want to give you is to adjust your attitude and and I know that can be a little bit hard a lot of times when someone approaches any stressful situation. You kind of really dwell on the situation that you were going to be putting yourself in a lot of times you get stress and anxiety and you worry about what will have been but I would like for you to try to focus on the positive go in there with a positive attitude and not only that but if you're stressing yourself out before hand you're actually giving giving yourself double the stress because you have the stress that you might be dealing with in the actual gathering in addition to the stress that you're giving yourself beforehand and instead of worrying worrying about what will happen cheers to do things that will help decrease your anxiety and stress. So maybe before you go to this family gathering or whatever event that you're attending do something something that you know is going to calm you do some if you're into it do some yoga. Do some meditating or listen to music. That's uplift dean that's calming. That's something that's going to put you in a good mood too. That will you approach the situation a little bit more calm. A little less stressed out and so you will be able to be more tolerant. Went and hopefully respond more tactfully. If there is some sort of conflict or difficult situation letters the second tip that I want to offer. You is is to have realistic expectations. This can actually be a little bit difficult because you do want to be realistic. But it's kind of easy to go then negative route and it's hard. It's easy to let your mind kind of go that way but be realistic about your expectations with situations and with people that you know are a certain way. Hey you can't expect for people to change for their behaviors to change for their personalities to change so approach. You're gathering knowing that if you have that difficult aunt or whoever may be chances are that their attitude their personality. Their behaviors probably have not changed since the last time that you encountered them so expect that be realistic but also don't focus on it. Tried to limit your contact with this. A person that's difficult tried to limit your interaction. Try to limit the conversation and do your best of course to be nice and be tactful but to not put yourself in a situation relation with this person that can possibly cause conflict and that can create more stress for not only you but the people around you because I can tell you for myself. Even though I don't have have conflict really with anyone in my family or with friends when I see other people having conflict it stresses me out. So you're conflict not only affects you do but it affects those around. You and you don't WanNa do that. You want to create a good experience for yourself and for those around you. The third tip that I would like to give you is to keep deep any potential upsetting topics or conversations completely off limits Of course there on the obvious things as you don't really want to talk about politics or religion. It's just kind of one of those things that you WanNa talk about really anywhere because You know there are going to be differences in opinion and that there is a recipe for some conflict because some people unfortunately can't just have a discussion about something and share ideas and share opinions without it turning into. There's some sort of debate and the is the last thing that you want at a family holiday party or you know Thanksgiving dinner or it's really just not appropriate and unpleasant. Wasn't that's just not what you WanNa do to you and your family or your friends. It's just not a good situation at all so definitely avoid those and also any other other topics that might be upsetting whether to you or somebody else if you know for example that One of your cousins is single and there little bit sensitive. What about it? Don't ask them if they're dating someone you know. Don't ask if they've considered getting on match dot com or something you know. They be considerate writ of other people and their feelings. Just like you want everyone to be considerate of your feelings. Just be polite and be tactful. Avoid any topics that can spur Birkin argument. And if you do have somebody that insists on discussing something. That's maybe a trigger for you or something. That upsets you bothers you. Try Try to change the subject if that doesn't work just politely. Excuse yourself and go to the restroom getaway for a second and take yourself out of that situation. I think that is is probably one of the best things that you can do. And I can honestly say Ogden before I have been poked and prodded a little bit with certain things that are sensitive for me and for me. It's actually kind of hard to change the subject or really say anything back and I don't ever really want to say anything back because that can really make an argument and I don't. I don't WanNa do that and I don't even like to argue. That's just not my thing. It's not my jam but if something ever comes up that it just really rubs me the wrong way. My strategy is always to excuse myself and go to the restroom. And that's also a great place to just take a breather to get away. Hey from other people's energy for a little bit and it takes a minute for yourself so just keep any upsetting controversial topics away it from any conversation anytime I would say but especially during holiday family get togethers the fourth tip that I would like to give you is to accept except that you can't control anybody else and the only thing that you can control is yourself and your reaction and this of course applies to to everything in life and to all situations with people in life but I think this is really particularly important during family gatherings where there can be some tension and during the holidays as and when you want to create eight nice experience for yourself and for your family you might have that person that says something upsetting or brings up a controversial subject. Ask Rude questions and that might not be filtering what they say and it might upset you. It might get to you. It might trigger something something in you but we all have the power to control our reactions. And I think it's really important to remember this during these situations and and you can definitely respond poorly and that's just a recipe for disaster and an unpleasant situation or you can again walk away or you can just see says something like you know right now is not the time to talk about this. Maybe let's talk about it another time and again if they persist. Just excuse yourself walkaway walkaway avoid the conflict. You are in control of your reactions to other people's possible nonsense so just remember to keep that in mind mind if somebody brings something up. That does not make you happy. Another tip I would like to give you is a little bit difficult for some people and can actually actually be kind of a crutch for people so you might not like this tip but tip number five is don't drink too much of course during holidays. Today's enduring parties pretty much. Everyone is drinking at any family gathering or Christmas party or Thanksgiving. You're gonNA see some drinks flowing you're gonna GonNa see some winds some eggnog. Whatever and people are going to be drinking myself included? I like a little glass of wine but if you are in a situation and with people that give you a little bit of stress. I know a little bit natural to be like okay. I need to relax them. Let me just drink okay. I need to relax but you don't want to do too much alcohol either you WanNa do it in moderation because for the most part people are a little bit more loose lipped. When they're drinking they tended care a little little bit less about how things come out of their mouths and of course like with the last time? You can't control what anybody else does. You can't control if somebody else's drinking too much and says something rude but if you're drinking too much you might not have the best reaction either so the safest bet is you know of course have forgotten wine or whatever it is that you want but don't don't overdo it. Don't do too much. Don't drink so much that you are not able to control your reactions to somebody else's rude comments try to minimize the Miza. Stick to what you know that you can handle be moderate. Make sure drink your water between drinks and also try to avoid anybody. Anybody that has had too much to drink because chances are like I said they are going to be a little bit loose lipped in my say something. That is a little bit upsetting into you. So Watch out for how much your drink and watch out for those that have had too much to drink especially if those people that have had too much are people that you might have how some conflict with and when we come back I will give you the last five tips on how to more smoothly handle family and friends that might be difficult during during the holiday season..
