Migration chief calls for all displaced to be included in national COVID-19 vaccination plans
"Head of the un migration agency iom is strongly advocating for governments everywhere to respect the fundamental right of healthcare when it comes to ensuring vulnerable migrants in the displaced get equal access to covid nineteen vaccines in an interview for us news antonio vitorino once migrants to be included in all plants regardless of their legal status adding that im stands ready to provide practical support to countries who need help battling the pandemic iom's. Greta began by asking the right. To general to outline the overall impact of the pandemic on migrants and the displaced coming matinees had an enormous impact on people on the move first for most that house impact because usually migrants leaving very crowded lively places households and of course they are prone to be infected. And secondly we've lockdown with travel restrictions. There are almost three million migrants blocked stranded all over the world so there are also impact and also social economic impact very serious ones that Underline the vulnerabilities tyrants everywhere in the world. It seems that there's not really going to be back scenes for everyone immediately. And i was wondering if you could tell us i o n recommendations regarding the prioritization and the inclusion of migrants in the various vaccine plans that national governments are putting in place. We've telling me advocate to have and refugees internally displaced people fully include in the vaccination plans you respected their legal status because as the secretary general of the united nations are very clearly. No omni safe a delivery body safe so the reasoning for the interest of the host communities. He's also to guarantee that the migrants irrespective of their legal status have access to national vaccination plans. And what does that mean exactly. Are you asking for a special treatment. No not special treatment to follow the criteria they used for nationals being applied to non nationals. Which means recognizing those wanting more vulnerable positions where co mobility's who have because of their age take risks extra risks of being community so it's an equal treatment but in these equal treatment. Everybody's were getting greedy then. Do you feel like governments around. The world are receiving got message. They're understanding the importance of facing their privatization on public. Health principles rather than immigration status principles. I think that other quite a number of countries worldwide presence texas State of texas in the united states or portugal are even countries in latin america like ecuador. Why are accepting the presence and the excess of migrants to not just the testing mechanism. Put also through the vaccination mechanisms. But i still think that there are a number of countries that have not realized that it is the interest of the entire community to have migrants fully integrated in the vaccination plans. So that is worth to back. Many migrants are finding themselves a nine irregular situations and may fear. That could be arrested or deported. If they show up to get vaccinated. What can the government do in order to preempt to that. I think that there is a green simple which is the respect for the fundamental riley for healthcare. And that's why the show. And i supports the claim for universal health coverage and we know that a difficulty there because sometimes migrants especially the ones we ne- regular situation reluctant to have recourse to the national health system. Because they are afraid of being detained or deported. The key issue is to get into the trust and mutual confidence with those migrants and to guarantee them that there will be no law enforcement implications for having access to healthcare and especially to the vaccination process. And those who feel that maybe The vaccine has not been properly shot. There's a lotta vaccine hesitancy going around not just on the curve the vaccine on other vaccines as well. What is your message to migrants displaced persons around the world regarding covid nineteen vaccine. I think that the vaccines always f- some risks. But at the couldn't situation. After current moment i think there is sufficient evidence from the scientific and technical point of view that the vaccines that will be available are safe and they guaranteed the protection of the person's against the virus. So my message is very clear. I think that it is absolutely necessary that each one takes get off feels out house. Eckenroth congress possibly using the mosque washing the ants but at the same time every score recourse to the vaccines that is a tool medical put at their disposal to protect them against these very aggressive. Fire that we are confronted
Kohl's CEO Explains Company's Relationship With Amazon
"Us about the relationship with Amazon now and are they a friend or a friend of me or how does that whole relationship work? Yeah, I would I would definitely put them in the friend category page, you know, when you meet created this relationship a few years ago and started testing and I can describe that in a moment. It definitely got a few questions like wait a minute aren't you competing with Amazon course, I would say there's plenty of market share to be had right there's billions of dollars in the kinds of products we sell but a few years ago. I mean we're looking at the incredible company they were building them tell when they had and we have assets they have and they have assets we don't have I mean we look at our you know, we get the store base. I keep talking about right healthy robust and you know another way to our earlier discussion the future of brick-and-mortar. It's not just about transacting and buying products as I mentioned. We're using them to fulfill Goods. So they're omni-channel fulfillment center as well. And so we've really dead. Challenge ourselves to think creatively about all the ways that a this this physical space can be used and serve our families. So, you know a few years ago we connected with a guy has on and talked about, you know, lots of ideas actually on how we could bring our complementary strengths. We've got this incredible store base and this consumer base. They have this tremendous reach and loyalty offer. Is there a win-win in here in can we think differently and build on each other's strengths. And so we started testing this idea where at the core of it. We accept Amazon returns and one of the insights we have about our customers. Andy is that and we knew this from our own experience customers hate dealing with returns packaging up finding the packing slip going dealing with it and we have already seen that 90% of our returns happen in the store. So how could we extend that and have that really be a skill of the company that we can leverage into other spaces and Amazon didn't have the convenience of these twelve hundred years. Is that we offer so the service and a nutshell is we take Amazon returns and we make it really easy for the customer. We have a dedicated space. It takes literally seconds to process the return the big Advantage free and the customer doesn't have to pack it to that. So literally they can just walk in with Whatever item that maybe they change their mind on and bring it to Kohl's and they're you know, they're done and what we get is we get our new traffic and importantly building a relationship with some new customers and what we're finding is we are getting new customers and we're seeing a younger customer and those are both very strategically important to us,
Omni Hotels Accepted Millions In PPP Funds But Didn't Pay Workers
"A lot of hotels closed their doors in the spring. And some still haven't reopened. These hotels were able to keep their workers on the payroll because of funding from the federal paycheck protection program. But one national chain omni hotels and resorts is under fire for laying off than and workers. They use the funds for other purposes bill driscoll of member station w. esa in pittsburgh reports one. Leadoff worker is killed. Sia moronta a health club attendant at the omni. Providence in rhode island. She's worked there twenty one years more onta. A single mother with children applied for unemployment and food stamps. Then she heard what she thought was good news. I well struggling to provide for my family. I learned that they only have received some ppp money great. At least you know. They're going to help us. Can't buy when it comes to basic needs. The ppp is the paycheck protection program. The half trillion dollar initiative was part of the huge pandemic relief. Package congress passed in march. The p p offered loans. That are forgivable if employers you sixty percent of the money for payroll related expenses. Ep was designed as an alternative to unemployment at least for the eight weeks of payroll benefits. It supplied the omni. Providence applied for a two point six million dollar loan and said it would be chained some two hundred fifty jobs. Balloon was approved in april but eight months later with unemployment benefits run out and health coverage long-gone meranti and the other laid off are still waiting right now. We are in december and we having here anything about using that money to help. James employees moronta belongs to the service workers union unite here with three hundred thousand members. In north america using government data unite. Here says omni. Hotels received a total of seventy six million dollars. P p p loans about a third of that went to hotels where the union represents workers. Carlos outta maiyo is unite. Here's executive vice president boston. I've spoken to hundreds of workers to work at the army. Parker house at not of them have received a single dime of this money and looking at this winter a lot of them could really use it. So where did the money go in a statement. The omni chain based in dallas said it didn't use the funds to pay workers because the hotels were closed or operating at low volumes. Ppp rules allow a business to use the funds for payroll even if it were closed but the omni chose not to instead the chain promised to repay the loans with interest at least the part of the loans that are not forgiven but these loans carry a below market interest rate of just one percent which angers demayo it's disgusting companies. Wanna try to use this as a way to get a low interest loan from the federal government. Critics say repaying the loans beside the point. Lisa gilbert is executive vice president of watchdog group public citizen. Thank you think about other businesses. That maybe didn't get money because he did either to small businesses over struggling or another company that might if you actually pay their workers as for these workers. Many feel betrayed again. You'll see moronta only call family. They always say that. We are finally so where the family treatment when it comes to the employees the unite here union has asked the small business administration which administers the ppp and the us department of treasury to scrutinize the omni loans. Whether they are forgiven remains undetermined even as congress approves a new round of pandemic relief
Interview With Signet EVP And Global CIO Howard Melnick
"Howard melnik. Welcome to second ovation. Thank you peter adding me. That's a pleasure. I thought we begin a howard with your your role. You're the executive vice president global chief information officer of signet. And i wonder if you could take a moment for those who may be less familiar with the company. Can you provide a brief overview as to what you all do. Let me tell you a little bit about my role and a little about signet. So i i've been at signet for about two and a half years and drew me to signet was that the company was launching transformation with a digital focus and a real customer first mentality. My sweet spot has always been integrating business and technology to create value as you mentioned. I'm accountable for information technology as well as analytics programs really focusing on things like being customer centric digital first or accelerating our cloud adoption and using analytics with machine learning in ai the Overall focus is really on driving business value. I part very closely with both our chief innovation officer arner chief digital officer To really create a world class customer experience. And so peter as you mentioned many people may not know the name sick but you're probably really familiar with the brands that we represent so first. Six cygnets mission is to celebrate life and express love so kind of what a what a great place to work at a particularly in these times where the world's largest retailer diamond jewelry and the largest specialty retailer in the us the uk and canada the brands that we have our kay jewelers zales. Jared piercing pagoda people's jewelers in canada h samuel and ernest jones in the uk and james allen which is actually a digitally native company which was a out of tel. Aviv's will thank you for that overview howard. I appreciate it Would love to talk a little bit about your your current strategy. I know from our past conversations that you've talked about the aspects like the path brilliants Some of the omni channel type aspects that you're doing and so on maybe you can dive a little bit further into some of the details of those if you would okay. Great peter so. I let me give a little background which i think really helps frame up the business strategy so signet. The group was founded in nineteen forty nine and grew organically until the late eighties early nineties. Back in february of two thousand fourteen signet acquired zales corporation which was based in dallas. And then two thousand seventeen we purchased to net. Which are the owner of the company. James allen which really starts to be our innovation hub so these acquisitions were great because they gave us breath and scale but gave me the ability now to say i have multiple technologies. Or how do i leverage that scale but at the same time be able to create really unique experiences by brand for our customers so with that we born are packed. Brilliant strategy now if you go back and think five or ten years ago. Julia was not a big on line. Purchase category jewelries intricate people. It wasn't a book and so we started to develop a strategy back in two thousand eighteen. That had three strategic pillars the customer first on the channel with a digital focus and building a culture of agility inefficiency and so peter when we last spoke which was about eighteen months ago we were just in kind of wrapping up to your one and one for us was fixing operational issues building a foundation getting us ready ear to came and that's really what strengthening our foundation rebuilding on the channel capabilities. We're actually getting us more product diversity and starting to really focus on innovation and then in year three where we sit now when we really were gaining momentum cova hit and coded for us was actually an accelerate. I would say in two months of kobe. We probably did two years worth of work. And so many companies kind of shutdown. We really started to accelerate areas of digital growth. And i think what we've seen is customer treads also accelerated things like buying line up in store curbside pickup. These are things that were kind of emerging at at slow pace but have really accelerated. I think in a post covid world are going to last forever very interesting and talk. Talk a bit if you will about the the way in which that. It strategy that path the brilliance supports the broader enterprise strategy with paths brilliance laid out. We developed an it strategy that had four key areas. I was when i called fix improved so a certain areas that we inherited that we wanted to make better Around people process technology data than the next area was with multiple brands. What are the areas. I should harmonize and then modernize and then the last area was really around innovation when we think of innovation innovation for us isn't just catch up. Its halloway leapfrog the competition. What can i do to really position as well so let me walk you through each one of those areas in some of the give some examples of things we did so if we look at one of the first area which was fixing improve. I'm a big fan of jim collins. The author good to great and one of the things he says. Is you get the right people on the bus. So the first thing we did is get the right people on the bus and then we started to look at our operating model and so since we had grown up with multiple banners multiple campuses traditionally were organized by technology by geography with some people sitting in akron in some people sitting in dallas. What we wanted to do is organize by foce. And so we started to make that shift where e-commerce team moved from traditional project teams to product teams but in other areas we started to leverage the concept centers of excellence particularly around areas like integration. Devops testing analytics.
Radiation used to treat benign conditions up to the 1960s has led to illness and death
"Element because it does not have as it should. This is a sideshow today. We have news about space weather. That may make the prospect of life in some of those earth like planets unlikely tale about trees. And how we couldn't wait to get rid of them and boy in iraq who amid the bombing and terror was inspired by omni to become a doctor but he wants more is madame curie which for i find it easier to observe talking. I measure uranium and i discover less radiations than i do in. It's all the always more powerful than the element exactly the same test six times. I get identical results. My instinct is that there is another element that skewing the results. You think you've found an undiscovered element. If you're laughing at me then i'm not laughing at you as exciting pinprick of radium gathered from four tons of pitchman. The most beautiful thing you've ever seen smash beautiful thing. I've ever see from the film radioactive now showing marie curie who won lasting fame and an early death her dedication and here doctor says he is not from the university of technology. Sydney reflects on some personal implications of that story as a young teenager going through a pile of old family photos with my mother. I came across a photo of myself as a small child. Cute murad the photo showed me wearing a close fitting skullcap buttoned under the chin. An old fashioned bathing cup. When i ask my mother about it. She told me she'd made matching cups for all my clothes because lost some here after some medical treatment will actually she conceded when pressed are gone bold and stayed bald for a long time. Wash nothing to worry about. I was assured. So i didn't not thin anyway. Mom was off hand about it. I'd had skin problems. She said moore richardson. I suspect to talk about the problem rather than the treatment itself. The skin problem was ringworm of the scalp. A common enough childhood complaint but it could be nasty and like headlights in primary schools. Today it was a sort of thing. Scrupulous parents weren't happy to own up to win the ring. Mom didn't clear up. The local doctor's advice was to travel from our country town to sydney for treatment in a special facility at a big city hospital. Mom was vague about the details of the treatment. What she recalled from the sessions. While is that they'd rub some kind of cream on my head and then they'd turn a ray on it for a while. This was done several times. She couldn't exactly remember how many but by the time the treatments were finished. My head was completely bald at the time. I didn't push for more. It couldn't have been a major matter if mama so inclined to dismiss it. And i hadn't really thought about it over the years or at least not until recently many decades later when i was diagnosed with stage three muscle invasive cancer of the bladder and in the ensuing panic we began to rummage around in the family. History for possible reasons. Why no history. Nothing obvious but then the image of my small bald self came to mind by a strange coincidence not long before i'd heard an interview on abc. We've pulitzer prize winner. Deborah balloon about her book. The poisonous handbook achieve lee shocking. Mix of science toxicology history and to crime the book tells her poisoning motors tended to be perfect crimes in the early twentieth century until detective work in chemistry and toxicology established forensic science as a tool in the arsenal of the crime. Stoppers of the day among the poisons detailed in bloom's book along with us nick cyanide mercury carbon monoxide and thallium. I was surprised to find a lengthy section about radium. Deborah blum's droll reference to the early enthusiasm for radium stuck in my mind and so did a story. My specialist told me during a pre surgery briefing about the british town of huddersfield. In industrial west yorkshire. Many hundreds of factory workers in the area had died of cancer of the bladder in the twentieth century as a direct result of long term exposure to various toxic chemicals and dyes. I learned later. That warnings had been ignored by both industry and government and research findings suppressed

I am still the ceo of johnson publishing company. So that is great and it. Is that the founding company for ebony jet magazines and fashion fair cosmetics all started by my family and for better or for worse i have never worked anyplace else and so i grew up in the business. Grew up in the in the magazine business in the publishing business and also in the beauty business but always surrounded by incredible people great parents but great staff who were very uplifting and all about aspiration and inspiration for the african american community. So i grew up in the business. I went to Born and raised in chicago got my degree in journalism from. Usc came back and got my masters in management from northwestern. And i got my masters in management. So funny i started out full time in school and then i switched and i went part time so it took me longer but i really wanted to work at the same time and i had the luxury to be able to do that. A lot of people don't have that. But i did because i wasn't looking for a job once i got my degree. I already knew where. I was going to be an actually once. I i got my masters in management. I actually became president a company like the very next day. But i do want to stress. One thing that i think is really important here and that is i have worked in a family business but it was not a given that i was just going to step into this role and if you know if you knew anything about my parents it was nothing was given. You've really had to earn it. And so it does seem like boy. That was a really fast. Reject re but This was decades and decades of work. I mean i spent more time at a copy machine making copies and doing all kinds of stuff that you know people do when you start out in in a company. I don't think that was any different for me. Something that people would be surprised to know about you that if not on your professional bio oh my goodness. Let's see on a personal side. I i love to ride. I have horses. I've owned horses all my life so that is sort of my luxury right now. I don't have one. But it's the way i can relax and i studied opera. We do you think. Please don't ask me to sing. But i did. I studied opera for for many years. Took voice lessons and loved. It absolutely loved it. We're gonna dive into the family business. Tell me about your family. Tell me about your parents so you know my parents. John and eunice. Johnson were part of the great migration of african americans from the south to the north. So my father came from arkansas. My mother came from alabama and very different backgrounds. This is so it's really interesting. My my father came from nothing. And when i say nothing his town great people but only six hundred and sixty eight people there. His mother believed in him so much and she just you know the love that she had for him she poured into just him and so for her. The best thing for him was to get out of arkansas arkansas and get education and the way to do that was you know they. They got on the train and they came to chicago. they had relatives in chicago. So a lot of people. With the migration from arkansas people came to chicago alabama. They came to chicago. My mother came from alabama so my father dirt poor came to chicago. Went to high. School became head of the debating team editor. The school paper graduated attended the university of chicago and my mother on the other hand came from a background. Where you have to think about this. Her father was a surgeon. Her mother was a schoolteacher in psalm alabama so obviously black african american back then prominent family. Her two brothers were surgeons. Her sister was a phd professor in english and my mother came to chicago to get her master's in social services at loyola. So now you've got these two converging people now completely different backgrounds you know and and they met ed dance. My parents met at a dance and my father. I remember him saying you know. Ask your mother. You know at the dance. Could i take her whole and my mother said absolutely not absolutely not it. She said. I'm going home with the person that brought me. And so for my father. Being the maverick entrepreneurs salesman was game on. That was

Eight billion in twelve point seven billion dollars that would represent growth of fifteen to thirty five percent from last year. You no surprise really there. I think to me what really stood out and again not surprising but still stood out. Because it's just pretty darn impressive was shop by shop by his stock obviously a lot of our listeners. A lot of our members and subscribers are all very familiar with in. It's been a good year for shoplifting. Is stock up around one hundred and seventy five percent. The numbers that day chalked up for black friday really impressive two point. Four billion dollars in black friday sales that was about seventy five percent growth from last year so clearly the investments. They've been making in business all along the way or paying off. And i think the thing the thing there is because we can sit there and criticize shop five for example oh it's overvalued or you know it doesn't make a lot of sense because the business doesn't make that much money yet that that may be true but these are the type of these types of numbers that will i think afford some time i think as long as they continue to record these types of numbers the market is going to continue giving it Some wiggle room there. We've seen it with amazon. We've seen it certainly with wayfair. I think i don't think it'll be different but there were some interesting numbers. There within shop of is report that i think are just worth noting average black friday cart price. Globally was just under ninety one dollars. That was up eleven percent from a year ago so people spent a little bit more in need thing here in this mobile world. We always talk about how mobile is really leading. Four mobile sales on black friday this year. If you look at the breakdown between mobile sales and desktop it was sixty seven percent mobile versus thirty three percent desktop in last year that was sixty nine percent mobile and thirty one percent desktop so the differences is marginal but it seems worse shopping on desktop this year for obvious reasons and so the data i think but yeah it all goes back towards this digital economy that we're witnessing in it. It's it's seems like it has a lot of traction. I don't know that we're necessarily going to be going back anytime soon. I'm glad you mentioned shop five because we have talked a lot about the big retailers like walmart and target in particular the investments that they have made this year for curbside pickup for delivery all of that but worth as you said pointing out the investments shop by his made and this is a stock that i do not own i. I understand both sides of it. It is definitely on my watch. List having pulled the trigger yet. But but i understand the concerns. I understand the around valuation the lack of profitability. And maybe that's why we've seen the rise that we've seen for target and walmart this year because those are just fundamentally. I think a little easier for people to wrap their heads around. But as you said. I mean what what is the future going to be. Is it going. is it going to be well. Wants to all this is behind us. We're just to start going back to the mall now. I don't think so it's going to be more online shopping and to your point more mobile shopping. I think you are. I think you're right there. I just continued to be impressed with wayfair for example the mobile mobile numbers that they continue to record are really impressive. And that's that's furniture. Man i mean like people are shopping for furniture on their phones in regard to shop applied. I think when you when you look at the future. I don't think it's going to be one or the other. I think we've talked about this before really when we talk about target and walmart i mean it really is becoming about omni channel right. It's just meeting. The consumer wherever the consumer wants to be met in the more that companies the more that retailers are able to do this They're going to be able to take advantage of the digital economy. They're going to be able to take advantage of people wanting to actually physically go to stores In so i. I think the future is going to be a little bit of both but certainly shop. A fi is keying in on their specialty. In and i think more growth is going to be coming in. Obviously bad digital space shop is is absolutely one of the companies dictating the development of that space so even even next year. When i think it's probably safe to assume that that we get a little bit more back to normal in and the the the in person shopping experiences a little bit less risky. We'll see people wanting to get out. We'll see people wanting to go to stores and have fun with that experience But but that that. I don't think it's going to really Deter people from shopping online. I mean hopefully. I think ultimately what i'd love to see just this whole black friday cyber monday thing. I really like the fact that we're stretching and just this whole month so it's not really about fewer sales. It's just about timing right. We're just stretching over the course of a month as opposed to really isolating on on individual days. I liked to see that. Continue to wear these concepts. These retailers are not just leveraged to a couple of particular days toward the end of the year. Just real quick before we move onto our next story on that point. Are you seeing this in your own personal life. Because i have in. The last week noticed that the promotional emails i get from different retailers are basically saying. Hey our black. Friday sale is gonna last for the next ten days. It's like the subject line in the email is black friday sale. And then you look. It's like oh this is actually going through december ninth. Yeah i feel like. I've seen a lot of that just anecdotally. I do feel like. I've seen a lot more of that. I think that's that's the right thing to do again. It's just it's a bit of a different time but hopefully as we've seen throughout this whole year this year has been an accelerator for change and a lot of good ways. And maybe this'll be one more thing one more change that will witness over the course of the coming years in the i think ultimately they'll be a

Walmart's Commitment to Hiring Veterans
"The right skills obviously is one of the core values that you have there. And the company is a foundational member of a new vet tech employer consortium. That's going to be helping. Provide training for high tech skills for careers in technology for veterans. Tell me about that program. How did it come about in. Who can access it. Well all answer it by by stepping back just a little bit and talking about things from a workforce development and labour market could perspective and even before that when walmart entered into lower the last five years we entered into this period where we really needed to integrate bland. The worlds of in store experience and an online experience for customers and through those efforts in kobe really highlighted the need and importance of us to be able to provide this omni channel or omni experienced for people. That's just a seamless. Shopping experience between the online and the in person domains. And what that has entailed is that we have any number of roles as part of this this leap into digital in leaning into digital where we have product developers and project managers and user experience individuals data scientists obviously the software developers and engineers in the cybersecurity information security individuals and it creates created. This huge demand going back to that workforce prominent so we needed to figure out how we considered our demand. What was the supply opportunities that were out there in. How do we build an opportunity to connect the two and this tech program that was established by the veterans administration or funded by the veterans administration and in partners with the us chamber of commerce accenture and others. We recognize the importance of it right away and so what it does is it helps take military service members. It gives them certain skills like cloud architecture or any number of other areas and with through those skills makes them exactly what we're looking for and we can bring people in who have those foundational skills and then continued to develop them into the people that were looking to grow over time. So we're super excited about that program itself that just one example within the employment heller that we're very interested in it. Aligned with our workforce demand and lets us tap into the veteran talent pipeline in a way that is that skill bridging activity in puts all that together in a really interesting and fun public private partnership example a model that we hope to see happen. Not just in the technologies but other areas over time how veteran access program through the va. It's just a simple google to the vet tech program. B. e. t. t. e. c. And the us chamber of commerce or the veterans administration. You can follow the path to that father clicks to that and check it out and we hope to see you through the program.

What About Your Friends?
"An Omni. Not to met in two thousand eleven. This is an talking about that night. We were set up by a friend, our friend dial Ola Padre a genius woman with a lot of foresight and the venue or rather the excuse for us to meet was A. Gossip girl television viewing gathering usually viewing party, but it was it was not a party, right? Like it was a bunch of people on the couch watching TV. Younger listeners won't know what this means, but you used to have to just watch TV when it was on. Like just imagine that TV was on at a specific time kids. So when certain shows like gossip girl became popular, they were just a part of the Zeitgeist because they were only so many things that person could be watching said felt like everyone was watching it. Plus Anna Nami. Naci both lived in DC where young and cable TV, the kind of Ecuador record in advance. If you WANNA to do was expensive and streaming didn't really exist yet it was a simpler time. This is on me not to. You know I was like, okay. I know that she's a feminist lady with like a fun sense of humor which. You know I was like that. That's such a very specific. You know kind of you know like kind of person I was like, yeah. We probably have the same length feminist hope bags probably you know like there's some like ven diagram like overlap there. So like very superficially that was one thing but like within the context of the Party itself, you know I was like everything. Was Fun. It was like yes dioz absolutely. Correct. I love how this lady dresses I love every joke she's telling I love her look I like her ideas I like the way she talks you know when you like imprint on someone that you like immediately like it's almost like they can't do anything wrong like everything is just charming to you and so I was very charmed. It was like that for both of them. They just clicked in that because of the tote bags but because for both of them, they were just in the same as of life and experiencing this phase in the same way. That really was a kind of unsettled kind of unhappy searching point of my life. I mean we were in Washington DC where our peers were pretty transient. Kind of place where a lot of people will go and work for a few years and then move on us included and I think we realized when we went to retrace our steps to write this book that we each had a very close friend who at the time we met was like either in the process of moving or we knew they were just about out the door and there was that feeling of unrooted this is that even a word we were not rooted. And we were really trying to figure out what the next phase of our adult life was going to be like, and so I, think that it really was profound to meet someone who I connected with. So deeply because it really felt like, I don't know it felt like almost like immediately being routed to someone as opposed to being routed to a place which I had not felt in the almost two years I lived in DC at that point.
7 Laws of Podcasting
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm the orbital and today we are going to be talking about the seven laws of podcasting. So Neil that I've been podcasting for about been four years now a little over four years for marketing longer if you think about your growth everywhere yeah. Longer will leveling off for for seven years on that one. So it's been a long time. So seven years. For seven laws. Right. But I guess I'll kick it off I. so before I could get off meal and I did it no this podcast was going to go and we've realized that we caught onto a trend that is still taking off right now and podcasting is just going to get bigger and bigger last year the number was about seven hundred, thousand podcast in the world has probably got a lot bigger since. Then, and there's a lot of advertising dollars going into podcasting Joe, Rogan's podcast. They did a deal as spotify for over one hundred, million dollars. So it's just going to continue to be good times. It's a nice medium for people and you know the first law will say about podcasting is you know you've got to be consistent and share story around that my leveling up podcast for the first year only nine dollars. A day off of their first year after second year only thirty downloads a day, and then from there, it started compound, and then that led to that podcast is still there and now we have the mark podcast but we've been very consistent with it on the same lesson that goes over to if you're doing youtube if you're doing blogging if you're doing any type of content at all, it just it just consistency. Number two, you need half quantity the more quantity you have the more episodes you have the more listens yoga time it really does stacking compound. So don't just think that you're GONNA do well, even if you're consistent and you're pretty senior episodes every quarter or even weekly, you're not gonNA do as well as if you just did a daily with people like us John Lee Dumas, there's quite a few players who just Do daily a is more work, but you get the listens in the Dallas away quicker if you just quit way more quantity number three. So if you look at the Joe Rogan's of the world when he does video podcast, it actually gets chopped up into a lot of different pieces. So we've often talked about Omni channel and hasn't changed air if you do a video podcast like we're doing right now and you. Can make a bunch of different pieces. One sixty minute long form interview can become six mini pieces and you can put it onto youtube. You can put onto podcast whilst now you have thirteen pieces right there and then you can make little micro content for social. There's just a lot that you can do chopping things up and you can use a service like repurpose house dot io, the adding Babbit two, hundred, fifty. Dollars a month find on a five, hundred, dollar a month plan. Eventually, you can have your own team, do it for you, but that's a good way to get started with repurposing number four. You GotTa do Keyword Research. It doesn't matter what you end up talking about. If you don't have the right keywords with the title of your podcast and your descriptions, you won't get as many listens in Dallas. So Do Keyword Research. Number five seems like a dust and but still a lot of people fail in this. I, remember back in the day I was using Blue Yeti microphone and the problem with that one was I plugged it into my USB port. What you should be doing is you should be using a mixer so both nearly have a mixer read one called focus right and you can use focus right and then we both have higher pr forty microphones and so these are high quality microphones route four, hundred dollars from the Mike and the mixer. I believes anywhere from one hundred, one, hundred, fifty dollars or so you don't need a start with anything crazy but. If, you're going to be using a blue Yeti, which one hundred dollars still make sure you have a mixer because you sound a lot better and a very important thing is the quality of your sound 'cause when Neil I used to record next each other when we first started this ambiguous when we had to turn off the air conditioner, it would get really hot but also more importantly, it was really echoey and done a terrible because we're right next to each other and people said, oh you guys sound like you're recording from the bathroom Blah Blah Blah and we started getting bad rating from it it just it's not a good user experience. Number six aspirations. If you don't ask for ratings, you won't climb the charts and you won't get as many new listeners and downloads. So at the end of each podcast, there's nothing wrong with asking for ratings. Yeah and on top of that, if you're GONNA ask for the ratings, we haven't done the best job of this incentivizing people to put a rating. You'll probably get a lot more exotic just neil haven't done a good job about it number. Seven, you gotTa know your numbers. You can use look at the apple podcasts analytics look at spotify analytics as we look at where retention is and you can see retention will tell you what episode you should be doing more of. So for example, what we do episodes Seo retention might be ninety, five percent but if we start talking about how we like to plant tomatoes than our retention might be forty percent or so so it might not do as. Well, the other thing too is when we use chargeable chart able, that's how you spell it. They will show you your thirty day performance or your seven day performance for new content that you have coming out. So now I've been looking at them like, oh, well, people really latch on what we talk about certain things and they just they totally get disinterested when we talk about other things such as I don't know whether I'm just making things up. So, use chargeable has a lot of different features. It's probably the most complete podcast analytics tool out there were not affiliated and we just use the free version, but she's been really good for us.
How To Stop Being Involved in Every Aspect of Your Business
"Hello and welcome to another top advisor marketing podcasts. Couple of days ago I had the honor of interviewing a guy named John Lincoln who's a an INC five, thousand growth company He's the CEO of ignite visibility. He's a digital marketing expert and he brought up stuff that has been subject Kirk and I've talked about four ever and it was so much fun for me and after I shared it. With the team that that are craziness is actually being corroborated by other people's craziness. But today we're GonNa talk about what some of the stuff I talked about with John which is how we hear top advisor marketing want you to market like you're a business not just like your some shop that was kind of a mom and pop sort of thing. So Kirk, where do we even begin with his brother? Yeah I mean the first time I heard of the idea of what you just said I'll paraphrase Michael Gerber. and Michael Gerber world renowned. Business consultant uses the words own a business, not a job. And I haven't gone here for a while in our conversations but. Mindset is everything. To, be more successful a high market in your business. We've talked about a year. WE'RE GOING TO BE WE'RE GONNA get into it today a little bit more so you need to think about Your financial practice like a business and you need to market like a business to say your thoughtful sustainable success. And the first title of our episode for this. Actually when we thought about it was market like own business, not a lifestyle practice and then you and I both kinda pause or like hey. Any sense either like why does it really matter what kind of business or what size of business you have as as a fast visor or professional advice giver Because if you have a lifestyle practice, wouldn't you want a powerful marketing machine like a system? To produce opportunities. To build brand awareness and have a system that you don't have to. Just kind of runs bills momentum in your business. So this is for a really everybody, every style type practice or financial firm. But if you WanNa be successful, you gotTa market you run your marketing like a business and stop Dabbler. Yeah. No more dabbling man what one of these US said a little while ago on one of our podcast is that you should give yourself permission to market to who you want to market to instead of just kind of casting net net out into the middle of the ocean and something that you're going to talk about now is this idea of kind of how you do that you've referred to that is growth pyramid. Would you mind breaking that down? Absolutely. I was actually speaking with a friend of hers coach. Joe Lucas. And he has a certain way that he loves to explain. How advisors should invest more in marketing adult adult think about marketing. these actually I named the Growth Pyramid for fun. This is through conversation I had with. Joe Likes to break down these three things. I wanted credit for stuff that I got from somebody else but he likes to talk to just about this way and he was he's bag on. And I've taken a little bit further as what we do some branding is really. One third of how you view. Higher GonNa Grow Your Company. and. That's your story, and then you're town that story to. Is Really important that you? Invest in having a story that really resonates with the people that you want to work with. Right when you said a complimentary Market like you have a choice of who you attractive business. That's a big deal for financial visors because I don't think most advisers thinking really have that much of a choicers too difficult to get there as not. True. The second part of the Growth Pyramid is marketing. And that's really having a system of staying connected people, attracting people to your message and being able to talent share that story on a consistent basis as many places makes sense for your audience aren't so being Omni present. Across social media in the digital landscape, SEO websites, thinking of all these things that can help you stay connected and telling sharing a story on a consistent basis that's marketing in need you need to have a system to make that out. If, you're if you're staying connected with. Axel get back to how these are all interacting the second. The third piece. Is Business Development and that seems to be the place of the focus of most fanshawe advisers in their mindset is. I don't need a system as much. I just need wherever I I just need to get. People in my office to talk with them. What's the most direct obvious to get to those people? That's for most advised focused And Joe Season, his businesses that when you can figure out how to get all three of these things working. Now you're running like a business but if you're just business development another word for that sales, you're just focus. You've got a sales mentality not American.
The Role of Marketing Has Changed (Here's How)
"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 another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about how the role of marketing has changed and how so I was actually looking at a there's a link imposed our mutual friend Yaniv shared and I thought it was interesting. So I can kick it off I just to give you an idea of what the template looks like and then we can kind of go back and forth if you think about the old way of doing mark disposals by guy named David Lewis, the old way was a lot of. Outbound marketing right album marketing could be maybe you're posting something on a billboard, for example, right and so you know outbound marketing is that's one thing. The other one is thinking about sales owning the buying process right so that was the past right sales like marketing is marketing, but you know sales sales and. You know. The other thing I'll I'll say here is sales and marketing in the old ways they were more focused on alignment, and so now if you think about it, they're more focused on being integrated. So it's not just US versus you type of thing, but they're you're actually together as one. So that's an example then versus now of the thing that's big to before there wasn't tons of channels. Now, there's a lot of channels you could do TV, print, radio billboards desert mentioned but now there's so many channels like even online. There are facebook youtube linked. In Red Pinterest snapchat TIKTOK GOOGLE ADS Tebboula out brain like the amount of places that you can go in the networks in the inventory that each people control is drastically different and for that reason, just marking has become now Omni channel whereas a marketer. If you can't figure out to wear multiple hats, you're not gonNA do well in the long run it doesn't mean you have to be great at everything you know but more. So even if you're really good at one thing, one channel, that's fine too. But if you really want to scale and be that executive. You gotta understand multiple hats and how to run a team that can leverage all of them instead of one of them because you can no longer build a company just a one channel like when you used to facebook was built off the email if I go and create another copycat facebook that's better and I just did it won't work look at Tiktok. They blitzed the whole web everywhere and offline to grow their popularity quickly they couldn't just use it invite slow from that facebook used. To grow I think the other thing I would add is back in the day marketing would-be targeting individuals. Now, what it is, now as a lot of people say account based marketing, what you're targeting in the account. So if I'm targeting Coca Cola I used to maybe just picked the VP of Marketing Coca Cola. Now, I might pick the entire marketing team or maybe even the broader team around coca-cola some targeting the entire count and eventually hope is that you know we'll get a hold of. Somebody and be able to hit them up and then utilize things such as dynamic retargeting to constantly be top of mind for these people and Neil just mentioned earlier being on the channel right 'cause you know maybe the rule of seven is is maybe the rule fourteen. Now, right people need to see a lot more to take an action and I truly believe that you know the people that do branding. Well, we're kind of all over the place when they're aiming for reach. That's how. They're gonNA drive long-term success in general look if you WANNA. Do well, try to understand all the channels understand how they play nice together and understand how in the organization everyone can move and think about sales and marketing because it's all intertwined and that's how concentrate growth hacking came about and if you do that I, think you're going to be much better off you're going to have to know fine tuning your processes you're GonNa, find your workflows but the concepts are still the same in which. The more people you get more eyeballs as long as it's converting the better off you are, and the final thing I'll add from my side is that you have to understand technology as a modern marketer back in the day maybe not so much. But if you look at how things are being done online right now, there's a lot of personalization going on right now you have a lot of data coming through your website. You might be enriching that

Austin political group says City of Dallas forced them to cancel convention
"Group in Austin says the city of Dallas is showing bias by forcing them to cancel the convention this weekend. Carol. These Allen's Kaya has the story and Americans for Liberty is based in Austin. They were planning a training convention for 1400 students and hundreds more investors and politicians. President Cliff Maloney's has Austin forced him to cancel. So they made plans to move to the Omni Dallas We took a bet, and we lost that that that that was that the leadership in Dallas would be competent. It would be rational. He says They got a call this week after the group had already started moving supplies and equipment that the hotel would not allow the convention. It's hard to not see this as a biased decision when the city is allowing protesters and then we slowly straight days of protest in the city of Dallas is the company managing the army made the decision, but large indoor gatherings have had to be cancelled to comply with the governor's order. Company managing the hotel says it gave a refund and offered to reschedule. Maloney says it's too close to the election.
City of Dallas Cancels Young Americans for Liberty Convention
"To to Dallas Dallas this this weekend weekend for for a a convention. convention. Organizers Organizers say say this this city city waited until the last minute to cancel over fears of covert 19. Charlie's Allen's Kaya joins us live with details on that, Alan. Good morning. Scott Young Americans for Liberty is a libertarian group described as a graph grassroots youth organization. They're based in Austin, and they'd been planning convention of the Army in Dallas this weekend called mobilized 2020 President Cliff Baloney says they were expecting about 1500 students and then hundreds more investors and political leaders, including Rand Paul, He says young Americans for liberty and agreed to wear masks. Everybody had to stay together while they're here, and they would serve boxed lunches instead of using of a fame. He says they had already arrived with equipment, signs and materials to set up on the stage of the army. But they got the call this week they could not hold the convention. I think where we got frustrated was the city of Dallas through a bunch of curve balls at us over the last month, and we continue to adapt and comply, and even about 10 days before the event, I mean, they gave us full sign off from the fire marshal. So that's why it's frustrating. They waited till the last minute.

Designing human-like voice bots for IVR with Einav Itamar
"For those who? have. Never. Come across Volk. It is is A. Platform describe as a platform technology enables you to. Automate in coming calls into the in the Houston. conversationally, I. You describe. It. Wa. You're automating. Both incoming and outbound calls using the I. We also providing solutions for Omni Channel. On top of feats, you know many auto companies. The are Chad with companies are trying to into the space of voice. But then the extent that you get these, you know naturally suitable because voice is much more complex than I'm your shed, but we went the other way around I created. A solution that is good for contact center. Now, we're also studying to provide the solution channels and to provide also on me across channels solutions. Across. Messaging Chats websites in-app in many other channels, swell. Rhonda's this because eventually customers today expect to get the best service across the channels to get it also to be consistent and fluent. so you're talking. On about trade-offs, contacts and trade offs, and how you kind of you develop the plow foam to try and counteract some of the. Can you elaborate a little bit on what kind of trade offs? You UTAH. Yeah, sure. So S I mentioned. I. Think Sense. There is such thing as customer service. There is always a trade off between. You know. The company's you know our clients at one to provide. Good. Customer experience, but Dan their cost. For providing customer experience and especially. When there is a your scaly. So as no telecommunication companies and banks as A. Growth in a number of customers, a number of agents, it becomes more and more challenging to keep the level of customer experiences still keep the cost same. Venture. Customers what we experienced when we are calling. Is. Experienced long waiting times. We experienced sometimes inexperienced agents or you know all short agents, we know maybe limited access to internal systems or. Out Maybe. So So. Then on the other hand when companies try to solve skill ability issues and use technologies like. Then again, they get. They throw their customers into amaze rights with the that is not great. Awesome experience, and then sometimes they try to. Come these using. Trying to divert customers the other channels that they're more scalable like email and chat, and so on. That eventually, still customers are still calling and again receipts during co-lead more and more again because if you want something and you now. You still need to call. So it's not one or the other, he needed to provide great customer experience across channels and I think that if chat was where like a trim two or three years ago. Now, it's clear that the voice is as important as jet and you need to provide again a solution across channels and. Make sure that you don't need voice s like. Sumptuous is. Completed to. Jets. It's interesting that you mentioned or what you mentioned earlier makes me think about how a lot of times customer service can actually be a differentiator. Sorts can be a competitive advantage for starting companies. In. The US you've got a handful of companies that are just like really known for good customer service like jet blue, a trader Joe's. Maybe, there is something that you as well. Cain any companies that Spring to mind. You're like, okay. I. Don't mind calling them. I think John Lewis Typically tend to have a pretty good customer service, but another one from the US is Tom's shoes. Of you've had this dog is where some very agents have spent like twenty thirty minutes on the call was among and something. I think any complaints they ended up just giving you a new pair of shoes in insulin, and then there's another one about flower. Flower. Company where? They, they missed delivery to someone's There was an important delivery wasn't birthday with something else and the Mr Delivery, the person foreign open ended up giving them free flowers not announced just free flowers everyone. Constantly after that. For Making one mistake. So it just shows how important is to have customer service because people like me who have nothing to do with it tells stories about. That's going to be really expensive if you're going to be willing to stay on the phone for hours with the human. So I guess Vocal Da da driven customer service help companies close that gap a little bit when it comes to that customer service advantage. I don't think they relate to that. you. You mentioned several companies that could. A similar experience. No. Before costs and for civil ones. Not just automated, but I will make sure that. The customer experience comes first. So this is our ideal customer. So for instance, American Express is also where known. In. you know in in their? Ability and willingness to invest quite a lot. In order to provide great experience. So when we met with them initially, they were very excited about us both from the ventures you need. innovation and business the different business units. So that got us into a place where they invested in as they are one of our. Trusted the Bucknell's and we are Again one example for. For Great Company that believes in US and knows the importance. So great customer experience and not just

You know, I I do stuff for legal clients where yeah I mean I need all of those quench oil processing all of that stuff and the I really need the review process you know, because I have to keep on top of everything, and even though I've talked recently that I'm, I use paper notebooks for some things, sometimes I'll make a list for the day of the key tasks. But that doesn't in any way, reduce my reliance on Omni focus because this is a Bank of many projects and tasks that I have to keep track. And I'm in that application, you know, a few times a day, I don't use it as much as I think people think I do you know, whenever I someone you know, they're like, well how often how long does they? Well, if you, it's like a garden. If you keep the weeds out, you don't have to spend that much time on it every day. But you got to keep the weeds out every day for what I do this application is amazing. But, you know, teaches own I, I mean, I think anybody would ima my advice to anybody is for task managers, get the, the least complicated one that you can get away with. Yeah. And out of all of these categories and after talking about task managers are perhaps, the most individualized. It's, it's where people have the strongest feelings, but also where the differences are so personal. And we live in. We live in a in a time where there's such a wealth of options.

"I like that the only thing I'm going to say, though, is I do think if you're going to do this is actually quite important to move or change it. On a somewhat regular basis because you can just become totally blind to it. Like, if you know if you write out, sweat, the small stuff, and you stick it on the top of your computer, monitor it becomes invisible after a little while you just you don't really notice it is it gonna always think of this as like in productivity, there's a thing about the Hawthorne effect, which is simply changing almost anything increases productivity. But then there's a half life to that. And so. If you're going to have something that you can visually. See I would move it around. So that you don't become visually blind to it. So for me, one of the ways, I don't print out what might theme is. But one of the ways that I do keep it in top of mind is that in Omni, focus, I do have folders that contain projects that are related to the theme can have the the year names like year of reorder. And it's like that here are the things that are directly related to this. And because I'm going through Omni focus, a bunch like that is one of the ways in which I help keep it top of mind, and that folder is also at the top. So that hopefully when I'm going through things I see that and that just plant the idea in my head a little bit. And then as reviewing projects I can see like does this does this work towards the overall goal of what you're looking for this year or not? So that's the place that it exists in my life. But I do think you need to have some. A place where you are revisiting or seeing it other otherwise, otherwise, it's basically like a New Year's resolution, right? Where you say like, oh, I'm going to do this thing. And then you never think about it. Again, you have to have you have to have a loop. You have to have a feedback loop somewhere of revisiting and adjusting it's much more than just having the idea. Yeah. Has to be something some kind of reinforcement mechanism for yourself. Yeah. You've got you've got to come back to it. And that's that's really the key..

"Seriously. Suggesting a you should give focus a try because I really do think if you're someone who travels and has the kinds of reminders that we do. It's just a total dealbreaker if you have a lot of them. It's just too frustrating. So I'm not seriously suggesting that you try it. I'm just going to keep waiting until Omni focus, fixes this. And then try to believe into switching because the fact that I can now set like if I have a swallow. Do I have all my tasks, they just float? And then when I get to a place, I will change anything I need to be in like the home timezone back manually right now. I if I ever have a task is very rare. I have these tasks, but now I can just when I initially set it up into fix it to this time. Yeah. That's exactly what I want. And that's that's really nice. It's really good that they've implemented that so that it doesn't even have to or like, you can be be more confident that you have set this task and explicitly the way you want it to be which is which is you know, what a deadline should be. But all of that aside that that that one crime doing issue do really love, Omni, focus and. I mean, I mentioned this before. But the thing that's the this. The really big deal for me is the fact that you can tag your tasks, and you can give them an arbitrary number of tags. And so. I'm looking at my Omni focused right now. Why does this matter? Why do tags matter for me it amplifies? What is the strongest point of Omni focus that no other task manager does as well. Which is I only want to see exactly what I can work on now. And it drives me nuts when task managers show, you all of the things that you can theoretically do today or stuff that has to happen later in the day, but you can actually start now. Like, I maybe it's just me, but I'm very sensitive to that kind of thing. And it just breaks my brain. It's very frustrating to see actions that I cannot act upon and by using tags.
