"I'd love to do a little race walking one. Oh one with you. Because i think there are a lot of Pretty widely misunderstood. I think a lot of people look at race walking.

There's two rules You have to land with the straight Knee and then that has to stay Straight until it passes underneath the hip and then you know always have to have one foot on the ground at all times by the judges.

Breaking Down the Post MLB All-Star Break Stats
"Let's go ahead and start with a look beyond the box score. Those post all-star break numbers still very very high. As of monday's show was a fifty to average street. Twenty four base. four twenty. Two slugging will now. We've added a couple more days of three more days of data to those numbers. Still the two fifty two average on base down a little bit at three twenty one. But slugging up to four thirty five so at three twenty weighted on base average since the all-star break here across the league and that big uptick in slugging percentage is what i'm really focused on here for. Today's show as we know. The strikeout rate is down the stretch outrageous down quite significantly since that spin rate. Crackdown to hold a with the foreign substances. And all of that so guys are putting a lot more balls in play but now not only guys putting more balls in play but we're also seeing better fortunes at high-velocity contact and also more carry average fly ball. Distance is up here in the second. Half from june third. The time that's the second memo was actually sent out. It was a first memo in spring training back in march then. The memo came out june. Third major league baseball said we're going to take this seriously. Then enforcement started on. June twenty-first but any about from june third in july eleventh average fly ball distance three hundred nineteen here in the second. Half three hundred twenty one feet could be something could be nothing could be factors is obviously very hot in the month of july as we know and also to. You talked about this a lot on monday. Show but it's something that's still very relevant here on thursday is that we've seen a lot of below average starting pitchers since the all-star break guys are hurt. We've had several doubleheaders all of that. But also just what i've talked about on the daily article and then also on the shows here in that you've got a lot pitchers that have pitched on seven eight nine ten eleven days rest shohei.

CPI Rises 4.2% Over the Last Year
"Welcome to the investors podcast. I'm your host trae lockerbie and today. I'm super excited to welcome back to the show. Fan favourite merrin tusa and always a pleasure. Thanks for coming on the show. That's my pleasure. So one of the reasons. We love having on merrin is that there's always just a wealth of knowledge that you bring to the table and it's always such a wide ranging discussion and today's no different. There's a lot to cover. And i want to go ahead and dig right in one of the most interesting headlines. I think we've seen recently is the. Us bureau of labor statistics releasing some new cpi numbers and the is risen. Four point two percent over the last year so given your knowledge and the gold and silver mark is. I just wanted to take the opportunity to ask you about what your stance on those metals looks like right now and if you've been expecting maybe better performance out of them lately as my subscribers know when you have such a lockdown in so much pent up demand you look what's going on with copper lumbers so many sectors or hitting it and people what about gold and silver. I remind everyone that eighteen hundred dollar gold is a phenomenal price. Or me and the company that i'm heavily invested in and i get it. People want the to handle as four handle. Cpi came to thousands better than eighteen. Hundred i agree but when you're all in sustaining cost is eight nine hundred and you know you have a one hundred percent margins. That's a pretty good business to be in so yes. The investors want. Bitcoin like returns. They want that action but mining is the remember. Gold is the oldest currency in the world so moves a lot slower and it's a much more global. There's a hundred eighty six minds with over for example with over two million ounces. It's everywhere and it's a big business osama silver silver nod as much of a currency metal. Like gold is because over half is used for australia. Uses has got one foot in the industrial sector and one foot in the precious metal. So you would expect silver to be doing better than it is

Looks like they're half strapped into a roller coaster. You know just this big thing coming down over them yeah So who cares okay. So they're You know talking about how some have covid.

So you're going on a trip and you have five animals a cow. A horse alliant a lamb and a monkey really picture each one a cow a horse a lion a lamb and a monkey all right now on this trip huron. We're going to have to give one of those animals away. Which one do you get rid of. I all right. You got which one you're giving away now get rid of another animal and then the next one and then the next one and then which one do you keep that last remaining animal. Just hold it in your mind's eye for a minute that's the animal that represents what you value most in life. Each of these animals are representative of the priorities in your life and like the lion is your pride in the horses. Your job and the cow is wealth and the Lamb is your significant other and The monkey is like a child. Michelle learned about this game from her aunt back when michelle was a teenager and the wish he thought about it back then was like okay. If the premise is that. I'm going on a trip. I need to pack really light and so i was like it's going to be a real pain in asks to like carpet lying around so like that's gonna go first and then like the cow is also like this really like large stubborn animals so like i can get rid of that and looking back it makes sense that michelle would immediately give up her pride in her hopes of striking it rich. Because you kind of have to. If you're going to grow up to be touring musician my name is michelle sonner and i also play in a band called japanese breakfast but before japanese breakfast was playing venues all around the world back when michelle was a teenager playing this game with her aunt the third animals she gave up was the horse and then as a real toss up between like the lamb and the monkey and when michelle played this game with her aunt. She was like wait a second. Have you played this game with my mom. What animal did she pick. Since you know choosing your child is an option why she better have picked the monkey. Although michelle wasn't a hundred percent sure that her mom would choose. The monkey felt was my mother's priority. But she was also kind of like somewhat of an enigma to me. And i think that that was why the type of game was so enticing to me because she could be very private and somewhat withholding as michelle writes in her new memoir crying h mart. Her mother wasn't what she calls a. Mommy mom my mom was by no means like coddling anyway. She was very present and very involved in my childhood but she was not easy on me in a lot of ways of every time i got injured. My mom would be very upset. Instead of like you know rushing to my aid and taking me to the doctor and sort of like telling me it's gonna be okay. She could you know she would get very angry and start yelling at me because she was just so angry that it happened. I think and didn't know how to track that energy. Even as michelle grew up her mom was always a source of tough love. I remember when. I got fired from my job at a waitressing and mexican fusion restaurant and i was so obsessed know worked really hard and and a lot of i've seen other moms we like you know it's their loss honey like you'll find another job or whatever. My mom's i won't show anyone can carry a tray. She just had this like very like cruel reality that she would hit me with in michelle's mothers defense. Michelle was kind of a handful. I was such a rowdy tomboy. I didn't take care of my things very well and that drove my mother crazy. My mom was someone who had like a twelve step skin care regiment and tony piece of clothing for twenty years and looked like it had never been worn and she took so such great pride in like self care and her appearance and fashion designer handbags. And you know. I was like a little punk kid that wore daniel. Johnston t shirts and patched overalls and wanted to like play rock music for a living. I was very angry and perplexed by my mom's decision to settle for
The Legend of Asmodeus
"And magic. Don't play a major role in the official christian bible but that wasn't always the case. Tales of enslaved demons and spells. Were quite popular in the apocrypha works. That didn't make the cut for the mainstream religion. We know today one of these texts the book of toby it chronicles of fearsome and powerful demon named as modena's. His legend goes back three thousand years to ancient iran. They're the name as modena's is thought to originate from a vest in the language. Used to write the sacred book. Zoroastrianism specifically scholars have traced asthma diaz back to the invest in phrase ace mma davida which roughly translates to demon of wrath. Legend has it that he held a high position in the underworld and was often described as the king or prince of demons. Born of an unholy union between demon and a human woman as medina's was a shape shifter able to materialize out of thin air and take on any humans appearance but in his true form his demons wings were said to stretch from the earth all the way to the heavens however regardless of what shape he took at least one foot always had the gnarled talons of a rooster despite his domain over rage. wrath as medina's was hyper focused on one thing ruining marriages. The king of demons was a home wrecker in the testament of solomon as medina's tells king. Solomon my business is to plot against the newly wedded and god forbid you become the object of his lust because once asthma diaz is obsession begins only heaven. Strongest magic can defeat him.
The Problem With Track & Field World Records
"What goes into a world record. Obviously it has to be an incredible performance. Everything has to come together just right. They don't happen very often. When bob beamon broke the world's record in the long jump in nineteen sixty eight. See my previous episode about that. The conditions were perfect. He had the maximum allowable. Tailwind it was at a high altitude in mexico city. He had perfect form and he put together his best jump ever at just the right time since the advent of competitive athletics nine thousand nine hundred twelve. The international association of athletic federation's has been keeping world records in every event. There's been a progression of world records. As people of incrementally bested previous performances. Most world records are only broken by less than one percent. The greatest single increase in a world record was the aforementioned bob beamon jump which beat the previous world record by six point five percent so that is sort of the world record of world records. Each event has a very different progression in how frequent and how recent world records get set. And this gets into the real heart of what i wanna talk about. You should expect to see world records being broken at a slower and slower rate over time as humans. Approach the limit of human performance should become harder and harder to break records. Records will require more luck and more people who have the perfect physique in the very peak of their careers. But this isn't quite what happened in some events there hasn't been a new world record set in over thirty years. You're shulte set the world record in the men's discus in one thousand nine hundred eighty six at seventy four point zero eight meters to put that into perspective. The gold medalist in the two thousand nineteen world championships had a distance of sixty seven point. Five nine meters a full six point five meters or twenty one feet short of the world record the men's hammer throw was also said in nineteen eighty-six yuri set up of the soviet union through the hammer. Eighty six point seven meters. The two thousand nineteen world champion through it. Only eighty point five meters that six point two meters less than the world record. The oldest existing world record in track and field is the women's eight hundred meters. Your meal acrostic viola of czechoslovakia set a world's record finishing the eight hundred in one minute. Fifty three point two eight seconds. That's almost five seconds. Faster than the two thousand nineteen world champion. You might have noticed something that all these really old records have in common. They're all held by athletes from former communist countries. If you're thinking that these records might be tainted by performance enhancing drugs. You aren't alone.

There's a variety of protocols and situational awareness. That is needed. But i'd really like her more from you on that. Because in my estimation this mindset is what separates those who make it to the top and those who unfortunately do not on different stages of climbing i have a different kind of a mindset. I would say that. If i fain like there there might be avalanche. There might be a route wash. That might be bad weather. Something which has detained my plans to climb a mountain. I get into a buddy confrontational mode. Because i am. I'm trained as a soldier. And i had to fight my adversity so at times i started seeing the mountain. Asthma adversity. it happened to me on mount everest. I had to in my second attempt. Also i had to turn back from three thousand feet twice before i made my tent and succeeded so in those two attempts i started challenging everest. That either you can give me death or injury you can go ahead and give me that and i will keep on doing what i'm capable of doing. So sometimes i get into that kind of confrontational mode. Where i see that. Yes the mountain in front of me. Is the obstacle that i have to overcome he. It is an enemy. And i have to fight it with all my might that i have sometimes from vivid me. There are certain sentences accord or something but have support him that just springs up bent. The conditions are really tough. I'm climbing exhausted and the going gets very very tough. I have seen these flashes. Coming from within a volume by Kipling everybody had about displaying very famous swim. If so there was this lions from this point if that some everything is finished and nothing is left to new that still a wasting your head which says hold on so at one time this would hold on just a up in my mind and i just continued. I just held on and kept my foot one foot after another in front official. So that is how it happens sometimes. It is ready spinach with because london's are so beautiful. I get into that meditative state also but i contemplate the nature of life seeing a mountain see a mountain the stance alone so anybody who is strong mighty and wants to rise high. Perhaps in life would be like that alone solitary having his own battles and also facing all kinds of storms videos rain gold snowfall everything but still standing very tall and after that i absolve that seed they also the cloud at times at times it is just sunny so this is how life also is on. Mountain's what i love the most about is that i don't have that usual crowd around me.

Athlete Chris Mosier on Being a Trans Athlete and the Queerness of His Sport
"Everyone my name. Is chris mosier my pronouns him his i am a How you just stumped me in the first question how you want your audience to know me. So i am the first out a transgender athlete to make team usa. I am an advocate activist for transition in sport. My mission is to make it easier for every person who comes after me to make sure that everybody knows that they have the opportunity to play the sports that they love and be their authentic selves. And i'm the founder of trans athlete dot com which is leading resource for trans inclusion in sports. And will you also talk about your sports specifically like what. What is your specialty. Yeah definitely this is fun. So i started off as a triathlete when i first transitioned actually before transition identifies a trans man. I was raised in socialized. This female grew up playing girls and women's sports but in two thousand ten decided to make medical transition transition categories. Kind of the short version of this is that. I wanted to make sure that i didn't lose my opportunity to play sports and so delayed transition for a while before. Actually the saying that transition. Because i didn't want to lose my ability to compete in sports so triathlon was the first part swim bike run and then i moved over to duathlon so duathlon is run bike run. It's a lesser known sport. It's associated with triathlon. It's super fun. And i don't like cold water so it's perfect remain and then last year in january twenty twenty. I went to the olympic trials for race walking so i was first trans man to make it to him. Men's olympic trials and i was in race walking. It was a sport. I picked up the year before Because i know somebody who is race walker and they recruited me and it was super fun. Okay this is this is. I'm sure the question that you get the most often after saying that. But how difficult is it to not break into a run when you are race walk. I just want to really understand the mechanics of like. I know my body can go faster than this if i do this other thing but the rules are right right right. So are you familiar with the rules. Let's talk about it. Yeah no i. Don't i mean i've seen it. I've certainly seen it. And i would imagine. That are very specific. Rules on what your body can do. That has to be true right right right right so the difference between a run and race walk is that your leg has to be straight when it hits the ground so your front leg has front knee has to be straight when it hits the ground and then you can't break that knee so bended until it's under your body. Ramen other thing is that one foot has to be on the ground to the human eye at all times so it has to look at if you slow down wow will do liftoff but so it has to look like you are on the ground at all times with one foot. So how hard is it like. It's funny that's not. Actually the question that i get the most the question that i think. I'm pretty interesting with my nose. It's around race walking like come easy on yourself. Question i get the most around race. Walking is was it harder to come out as a trans man or as a race walker. Which i love because it was way harder to come out as a race walker at this point in my life. If we're being honest. I didn't tell people about it for a while because i was like super because it's like the queerest sport that i could think of t tried to to go like You know in in the most wonderful

A Simple Choice
"I'm nora mcnerney and this is terrible. Thanks for asking. This is a continuation of the episode. Just before it in your podcast app so if you have not heard the previous episode stop right now. This is not a place to start this. If you're a first time listener no no no no no. You don't get to start here. I'm so sorry. I can be slightly bossy. But you're gonna wanna go back. Listen to the episode from the week previous and then you may have this one as a treat so for those who already listened to the other episode at the end of that episode. Mark told his girlfriend. Melissa he was going to have children with her and it is not a small decision it never is but it was a particularly brave one because mark had lost his mother to cancer when he was just nineteen. He lost his wife karen to cancer fifteen years later in three years. After karen's death he was in love with melissa and willing to make this huge scary leap with her for both of them. Things feel good and they feel hopeful. This is melissa okay. Good things are going to start happening now. Like we're gonna start having kids we're gonna start the next chapter and it's going to be full of wonderful things for mark and for i a year and a half. After that conversation the two them are married and melissa is pregnant. The wonderful things are happening. That's mark melissa. Seeing their baby's heartbeat hearing it seeing it at their six week appointment that little butterfly wing rhythm of their future child. It was pretty amazing. The lady was surprised that we would see it already. And at that point. I'd still feeling like. Is this real. Come not fully comprehending what's about to change in my life at that point. I'm just thinking like things are going. Well that's a good sign. Melissa was feeling sick which was also a good sign and at their next appointment. It was ten weeks and mark goes with melissa again. He's there. He's ready to document than the ultrasound tech. She was anime bali and she wasn't saying anything but this was our first pregnancy. So i really think anything of it and then she came back with a doctor and they told us that there is no heartbeat and it looked like we had just lost the baby just like within the last day or two and we. We both broke down. We were both devastated and it was. It was way harder than we would have anticipated. Pregnancy loss is just so much harder than you realize. Until you've been there. So i i don't really swear very often but i think my actual words were what the fuck and nobody talks about like the hard part like i mean. It's all hard but nobody talks about like how painful it can mean. There's so much blood that they spend the next day in the emergency room and mark is back in the hospital taking care of the woman he loves and nobody would blame mark for pulling back and saying see see told you my brain was right. The worst case scenario did happen again. All my previous losses didn't affect the statistical probability that one in four pregnancies are lost instead the loss of this pregnancy. Reaffirms that yes. This is what they want both of them so after we lost the first pregnancy. We knew that at that point we wanted it badly We didn't know how badly we wanted it until we lost the first one the first one because they do get pregnant again. We were just over the moon. We were taking videos of like everything right away but we were terrified. I think that's like some of the first words that came out of my mouth was like i don't wanna lose this one. There's a balancing act after loss. You learn to put one foot in front of the other hoping for the best in preparing for the worst hedging your bets and counting your blessings trying to enjoy what is while crossing your fingers and toes that the future will take care of itself that it will all be okay and pregnancy is intense. Your body is three d. printing a human being. That is actually my child. Put it to me recently. And i was like. Oh my goodness buddy. you're right. i did. Three d print you after a pregnancy loss. It feels like every twinge. Every ache could be bad news and this pregnancy is different than the first one
Gaurav Afore Discusses Pre Seed Investing
"Grab welcome to the show. Thank you for having me your the co founder of a four capital which is an early stage investment company. What was the thesis when you started a four. Yeah so both. My co-founder automates banerjee have been investing in venture now for almost nine years. And we were both. I was at a fund Fund and one of the things we've noticed in the kind of four years these funds. Is that the goal posts for early. Stage founders shifting. So if you were trying to raise your first million to a million dollars pre product market fit. When you have little dune attraction. It was getting harder and harder to raise capital not from angels and scouts through definitely been obvious explosion of that which is great for the ecosystem but none of those investors usually lead the route. So if you were to go to a seed fund Fund for them to lead around price terms so on and so forth they were very often telling founders. Like i like what you're doing. I like your background but you're too early for us. Go get some traction go. Bill the A little bit more than we can invest so we saw this firsthand and we said allow there is a problem. There's a gap there because a personally just from our passion. It's like we love getting involved very early. In love helping founders. But we think there's a problem here to be solved so typical founders. When you see a problem and nobody solving it the best way to solve it is to go. Go after yourself. So my partner adamantly denied we left our previous funds and middle twenty sixteen we raise our first fund in the fall and the rest is history if you go back before that you were an early product manager for android. What was it like being google in the early days of android is a lot of fun like looking back. Obviously come a long way when i joined android in two thousand nine. It was like a skunkworks kind of projects on the side. I mean look at google building massive business right in an online ads in the early two thousands but it was pretty clear by. Oh seven ole that mobile was going to be the future not desktop so from google. It mobile was a potential existential threat. Right if apple was the dominant you know or the way that most people accessed mobile if that was apple or the carriers right if reisen etc like the own the customer relationship. That will be very problematic for google right. Because the reason google's been able to really flourishes. There is no sort of toll booth if you may for the internet and anybody can spend up a website and you can start to make money directly with consumers but mobile was potentially to be a different dynamic so when i joined android it doesn't nine. We essentially had a blank cheque right from the management at a google. Say look this is potentially going to be existential for the business. We need a horse in the race. Right we need to have something where we can compete with apple and have a dominant position or or at least one of tour to three key players so that was intended to mandate orchid blackberry. Back in the days so at started a company in mobile as well as building software for smartphone platforms. So i'd seen the movie before and really put frankly one foot in front of the other was a leap year for the next product line. That was our way to really put enjoyed map. Because when i joined had already launched a couple of phones but always considered december the fourth operating system after blackberry in iowa s maybe windows mobile as geeky operating system. Open source right. It's like on the fridge and we would really trying to show demonstrated the world that android has come a long way and it is a very formidable competitor to less so the next one was something google we paid for. That product developed by. Hec in that case. We work closely with the carriers to bring that product market which tried to sell the phone online ourselves. That did not work because we realized people still like to buy the phone in person. After the two years that i was there android went from when i joined less than a million total users. To by the time he left we were getting about a million new users day in that kind of scale for small. You only see a few places and in hindsight it's twenty twenty Bunch of things. We did right in the moment it was. We were just running around with their heads. Cut off and trying to figure out how to compete in a very fast growing world
Accelerate Revenue Growth with VIP Guest Darrell Amy
"So let's talk about. Because i said this out about you. Being that super expert at help businesses grow. So i wanted to warn dokie different angles. I wanted to ask what gets you excited. Have businesses grow. Yeah and get excited. When you walk into a business you can usually tell what kind of business you're walking into either your walking into business where there's growth which means people are excited. They're energetic you can just feel it inside a business whereas if you go inside businesses not growing you can feel that vibe as well and i get excited about going into businesses. That are growing. Because i know that what's going on. There is two things first of all they're creating meaningful jobs and right now you know especially right. Now we need to create more meaningful work in company grows able to create meaningful jobs. And the thing. I'm most passionate about is nonprofits. I serve on the board of of two different nonprofits and i've noticed people that moved the needle. The most our businesses business leaders that are generous. And so i know when. I'm going into a growing business that the fruit of that business is not just meaningful jobs. It's also the giving that happens back into the community and in all of that adds up to make the world a better place so when it comes to growing revenue i get really excited about helping companies grow because the impact. Those organizations are able to have on the world and write ray girl what you shared. Is your excitement conferencing the impact. And i think that was great wisdom immediately at the beginning itself. Show it's not the revenue generated for the brands. You work with would how the trickles to other nonprofits and other areas in brexit community and the dubs. I really think to do it is it is and you know if you look at at where we are right now. Who's going to move. You know in so many ways. We're facing unprecedented challenges in our world and our countries who is going to solve their problems. What's going to solve those problems. It's businesses driving forward in helping nonprofits come along Behind them and all of that we're going to create a better world back. Gets me excited. Nunca a bitter and now before we go to the beker. The i want to come to nonprofits few cents. I wanted to go to the revenue growth. The core promise of your book. I just want to understand. What the real uniqueness what you've done to help. Businesses accelerate the revenue growth in this key areas that you held businesses focused to achieve this. So what things that you can share. The secrets for garros accelerated revenue growth. Well yeah thank you for asking either way and and i you know there are. There are several secrets. I wanna start with two today. That are are really really critical. When it comes to growing your company the first has to do with goal setting and when it comes to setting revenue growth goals were in a challenging time right now because a lot of conservative companies i found set goals based on what they've done historically may say well we've experienced this percentage of growth over the last three years so our goal next year is going to be that same number again ten percent whatever that number is however. That's real challenge. Right now is for businesses. Some businesses obviously have seen a sharp decline. So don't have a trend to work on their. That's very useful. Other businesses are exploding. They've had you know whole new areas of opportunity open in front of them in and so in either case. How do you set growth goals. What i found is the most powerful way to set realistic growth goals. I call them aggressive but realistic goals is to look to drivers of revenue growth. And if you oil it all down. I believe there are really only two ways to grow a company fundamentally you either get more net new clients or and or you grow your revenue per client and when both of those things happen at the same time arjun exciting things begin to unfold If you can accelerate your you can accelerate your growth if you can show reasonable growth in number of clients and simultaneously show reasonable growth in your revenue per client. When you add those two things up You see some really exciting results. I call it the law of exponential revenue growth for example a company that grows their number of clients by twelve percent. Simultaneously grows their revenue per client by twelve percent. They're actually able to double their revenue in just about thirty six months. Which now. I've got some things. I can really set some goals around. Not just setting the overall revenue goal setting the goal in terms of number of clients revenue per client. That's the first thing i would say is think about your revenue. Not just in terms that bottom line numb our top line number but in terms of what are the two factors that drive it. And how can we get more clients in selma current clients. And this is you make it so simple to me. Back to my beginning of my career in the b. to seaworld i remember What listen i losses. Amazing human being. She started as an admin and then she grasped the business and she learned. Explain to me the way you are explaining restaurants fix restaurants to convey simple vase. He said your sales depends on. How many guys you open the cash register how much you put in every time. Not that smart arjun. You could make thousand dollars. Yes one time putting thousand in a thousand times putting one in or something in between and based on that your strategy can be there. So i really love the simplicity as you start going through so as you have come here i just have to ask this question as a friend to understand how daryl get here like was. He warned that smart or not. Get in this journey. Get here well. the. I don't know that was a a that that smarter that i was certainly born this smart but but i did I think like a lot of us Most of what i've learned was has been in the university of hard knocks along the way. And i spent I've had a unique perspectives in that. I've spent half my career in sales in half of my career in marketing For the first twelve years of my career. I was in b. two b. technology sales sales management And then ended up ultimately starting a sales training company in the space. When i started that sales training company the fun part of my story was my very first came to me and said hey darryl everything you taught. Her team is fantastic. However our website doesn't say anything about it do you build websites and of course being my first client. The answer was yes sir. We build websites at actually built several for nonprofits. But it put me now and this was seventeen years ago when this happened over the seventeen years of had the unique perspective of having one foot in the sales world doing sales training consulting with companies about sales even helping some fortune five hundred companies build sales. Training programs have been very involved in that mad at the same time. I've also been on. This journey in the digital marketing space. So that first website turned into managing digital marketing for companies across north america and australia search engine optimization social media management inbound marketing now account based marketing. And so all of it. You know what i noticed was number one. There wasn't a lot of alignment in companies between sales and marketing. In fact i think that's an understatement. He knows it's kind of like your car. When you're driving your car in its non-aligned one wheels pulling the left. The other wheels pulling to the right and the poor driver is just trying to get to work. down the freeway Not only is. They're not allowed of alignment really. There wasn't even a common language between the two sales You know has their focus Marketing has their focus and there are a lot of finger pointing back and forth and where the lights came on for me. Arjun was when i had realization. That was actually getting ready to speak at a conference And had a realization. As i looked out over that that room of marketing professionals sales leaders in business owners realize this isn't about sales. It isn't about marketing. Those are just means to an end. What's the end. The end is revenue growth. And so when we started. When i started looking at things that way everything on this journey that i'd been on in in the sales world in the marketing world started to come into focus and out of that is where the revenue growth engine model emerged.

Nothing people say right and the thing is is that when you operate like that you know with saying all they'd have multiple she's income and you know let me make sure that i don't put all my eggs in one basket and things like that issue that you have is that you don't get enough time in focus to put into the one thing that you know you want to master In order to get it to a level where maybe you can rent itself or you could replace yourself eventually with someone else a teammate or automations of some software things like that and that's what happens to the investing a lot of people they come in rosaiah bessinger.

I'll start to drift off. Prowler around. I would say Late two thousand ten started to kind of drift off a little bit. And when i started drift off i started to see my business started taking this kind of when i end up close to arrive at their. I lost my My my bmw. In i quit my job. I was going fulltime. I was trying to like hustle. My life followed little other little stuff that make money here near while i was waiting for some of the deals to close and able to put the time edgy into the hotel. Business like i should have anyway. You know because was still brand new And i ended up. Losing my bmw. I start having you know My mom was getting me because deals was falling apart. Things you know wasn't going right for me. And that was the case of me one foot in one foot out all right so i quickly learned. I changed everything around in two thousand ten December going to january. Chinese things around. And i had a phenomenal year. Two thousand eleven. And i was really the spark of you know me seeing that if i put my full time energy into this business then it will pay me like a business. You know you look at this stuff like a hobby. You got one foot in one foot out you just trying to see if it works stuff like that. Which is fine if you wanna do that but just not going to get paid like that. Okay if you're gonna treat it like that you're gonna get paid like now. You can still do this business part time while you have a full-time job that's what i did. But you still have to be all in okay. You can't have any distractions of any other businesses because is is this going to be hard to pick them unless you got a super good team and you have real good leadership skills and you're able to light budapest team really fast and delegate tasks really fast then you can do that but most people start off. They don't have those skill sets right. They've never built the visible for never built a team before. But maybe maybe you built team your job and you know that you can influence Basically put this infrastructure together. Just like you did for your corporate job and if so that's fine then But if not if you're like most of us who didn't have that experience that doesn't have those skill sets the you want to start from the ground up and like i said just go all in period. Just go all in. Don't keep one foot in one foot out thinking don't know if it's gonna work so i'm not gonna go put everything it's not it's going to work. I mean you can go on youtube and see.

And other people there's other you know quote unquote gurus do whatever you want to call them. That have the same thing. Have success for other students and things like that. So there's plenty of proof if you just go to youtube of this working all right some people have had it worse than you or you know just as much as you have and going through some trials and tribulations the real life there's so many people are no differ from you and if they've been able to do it there's nothing that you you know why you can't do up same for me. I can barely passed. You know high school at take summer school to graduate finish college Like the thing is is that. And i was a average student. You know a c. Minus type of student in high school model life. Like so if i'm able to do it. There's nothing to stop you from it. The only thing that is stopping you is getting in your own way and going all in all right. That's all it is so just wanna leave you with that. Stop playing small. Stop having one foot in one out.

A conversation with Joaqun Niemann
"Let's get back to joaquin neiman. Did was there. Anyone who would have been the person that you would have been the most nervous to be around either to have played with or walk by on the range. Or if they're watching you hit balls on the range you'd have been nervous to be around. Who someone that that at that age would have major nervous riley. Yeah probably playing around here. I think i think the first time i saw was the moriarty was late north third or four tournament which Experience i remember. I was playing great. I was almost the last ruben sunday. I mean i could hear that. There was not only ten groups front but i could hear everything that's note and the people following him by think. Sergio helped me a lot to like. Get that pressure off. You know like lie. Know him. Before i turn pro. I will to play with him before on unknown how good they are also know that i can like i can be here. You know. I was actually at that memorial that year and i remember watching. Ut off on the tenth hole once. i'd never seen you hit a ball in person and it just stuck out to me immediately and do on tv. And i'm sure you hear a lot about how low you hit the ball and i'm just curious. Has that always been the case. And is that something that you know you. You were aware of growing up or any special reason. Why would hit the ball. Low and chile. Or do you think about that at all non. It was is fine because at the beginning that league union a lot of confidence. When i'm like a little bit nebulous son. I need to hit the way. I'll heed that show on a new. I remember when i start being professional a using. That showed that now during the time. Yeah i've been using it less. I'd i'd be using more hydro. I'm just trying to hit farther on. May i have that show that. I feel really confident when a heated unease yummies late may go to That's what i was. I was curious. And i was looking back at the highlights from when you won at greenbrier every now and then that forty one foot apex driver shot comes out and i was. I was just interesting because of how different the game appear the direction. The game appears to be heading seems to be you know track man. Everyone's telling you hit it high. Hit hi hi. I'm wondering if you know as you were transitioning from amador into pareo if anybody came along and said hey you could hit it this much further if you hit it higher or but i think what you just said though it's interesting how you've you've prioritized accuracy. But i'm wondering if if that has evolved at all over the years. I remember when i played. Infirm courses The bogus along. Way i Relate to two seventy and he runs it. Depends on the fairway ferry. Sometimes when their firm for example greenbrier they allowed so sometimes is not that short by yemi normally. I've been preferring. yes More with hydro. Sometimes i got bunkers around when he died. I'm like are now monday. Just gonna he'd been the hydro and the beginning. I was really. I don't know if i was a little bit more secure or no but early. I prefer yesterday that low one being more coffee when the on knowing that i'm gonna hit the airway but now he's more like a feel like i feel better on the course right now and i just. I just thought that showed that like more. And he's been pretty good lately. So i like it do you feel. Where do you feel most comfortable. Like firm and fast conditions or when when it softer yeah. I like away. When when he's firm. I know that. I don't hear really really high with the also with the iron. So it is hard to me to stub on own the green when i when i'm lega 5-iron their firm 'cause i don't get it like really high but yeah i mean like bain with firm conditions. I think is is more fun on unb lehner green or heating widgets from the hundred twenty yards is is is good to see that like bouncing around the great in those more fun. Yeah i mean. I find it interesting you know. Obviously when it's firm your drivers going to run out a lot more but like you said it's hard to hold greens. If you hit it low and i i wanna talk a little about royal melbourne in the president's cup. You know you have it's interesting. You didn't have the most success at royal melbourne yet at the same time at olympia fields this year which was very firm and fast you finish third. And i'm i wanna talk a lot about role melvin. But first off. I would say. Did you learn anything in particular from that week. That helped you in later situations when it is going to be firm and fast. Yeah more than of course it was more like the atmosphere. Unlike the like getting that amount of pressure it was one of those way i mean the whole way was really intense. On the course roy ever was unbelievable. I mean i think he's one of my favorite right now. Unease eighty s a lot of strategy. I remember ernie was standing us. They don't in many drivers. You gotta The ball on the right side than it was more. Legacy smart play yet was different course. i remember in chicago Driver everywhere every bunker was laid three or three. Oh five three. Thank ari so i was trying to cater scarlet side. Ken he was going straight. You which is which was really good that we
Dr. Shauna Shapiro on using mindfulness to help grow our emotional resources and our childrens self regulation.
"So I'm open. I'm ready. Can a couple of minutes a day? Do Anything. Absolutely, in fact, change happens in a moment right? We also have an A. Or insight, and it also happens over time and so there's this kind of interesting paradox or juxtaposition that you don't want to limit what change can happen 'cause I've seen huge change happened a moment and you also don't want to underestimate the power of subtle changes over time, and that's why my theme is. What you practice grows stronger than really the only thing you have control over is setting your intention setting your compass direction you WanNa head over and over as best you care not perfectly everyday practice mattis taking a deep breath today and again tomorrow practice counting to three before you snap at your child practice putting your hand on your heart and often yourself kindness once today. And love those because it's so. Manageable and rate. Now, if we can take those small moments, it's incredible if you just yeah find those moments of breath. How different your interaction can be with your family. Absolutely, and also the body would I've noticed recently 'cause as I said, we have four kids and a dog in their lives chaos going on. Is really softening body because what I noticed that sometimes in the kitchen and unlike braced for war A. Tie My shoulders here in like my buds pledged district to soften rate in just just leading the body settled and I feel my feet night truly wiggle my toes because that unlike there we go and so I think it's really about remembering and so had we remember is we practice in eventually it becomes a habit I remember growing up whenever my daddy get angry and we all know he really you could feel it he would close his eyes. And he would take a deep breath with his handling this. And I was normal I thought that's what you did. That's appearance do when they get angry and it would always calm him down not that he would be super happy afterwards yet that was his automatic habit when instead of the Elliott you that's what he would do and what I realized from that is it wasn't that my dad didn't get angry wasn't that he was perfect he got angry. But that was his goal to practice, and so if we can start to implement these practices in our life, it's like when I get angry, I put my hands behind Madonna. Hop on one foot I don't really care what it is interrupt your pattern and interrupt superhighways of habit so that we can start to carve out new pathways and what you just described with your father sounds like it was constructive. He wasn't not getting angry because sometimes you do need to get angry to meet whatever your emotional goal is is self-regulation is just it's intentional and so that breath made his anger tension on I imagine sometimes when he took the breath, he was like actually. I'm that that anger not where I wanna go I don't know better know his experience but having that moment to I would love for you to talk a little bit about making those emotions constructive instead of just pretending they're not they're exactly. So what this does is it allows us to have the full spectrum of motion. It's not saying push. Those are bad never have does it saying being human? You're going to have the full spectrum, but you need to know how to wisely. Relate to regulate your emotions and so when anger comes up, what mindfulness does is puts you back choice it doesn't say that you're not gonNA still be angry, but you're backing choice. So you can use the anger wisely instead of reactively and causing more harm and I think that's really the key to to mindful -regulation of motion is we welcome all of our emotions we see them clearly, and then we respond
Kate Jetmore Stalling Uphill in a Manual and Crazy Drivers in Spain
"US On podcast where we bring on a new guests every episode to talk about the crazy things they experience on the road who they are as drivers and how they became the driver. They are today I'm bobby and I'm Karen Jeep and today's driver is Kate jet more. She was raised in Indiana and lived in New York for twelve years before she went to Spain to hike the Camino Day San Diego where she met her future husband and Nash. E is a translator and a voiceover artist and also hosts the listen podcast. Today she shared with us her experiences of driving in the US versus driving in Spain and a traumatizing experience she had with driving manual uphill in Spain. Welcome kate to drive with US podcast. Thanks so much for joining us today. Thanks for having made a joy to be on So glad you're excited to be here. We love starting off the show with your crazy or most memorable experiences. What is one crazy or interesting experience you had while on the road? Oh my gosh. Well, I have to say when I think of this story, it makes me just break out into a sweat like it's the kind of thing you would. You would not wish on your worst enemy and you just hope and pray that it will. Never happen to you again. So I live in Spain as you know and in I would say in Europe but definitely in Spain almost everyone drives the stick. So when I moved here, my boyfriend, who's now my husband had a car that became our car and it was a it was manual it was a stick shift and I actually learned to drive on a stick shift. So luckily, I wasn't starting from scratch I knew how to drive the car but I grew up in Indiana, which is corn country flat, flat flat, and I never had to deal with a hill. In Indiana which actually changes everything when you're driving stig. So I live in a part of Spain. I live in in Cuenca, which is is definitely not the mountains, but it's kind of a gateway to the mountains and there are some serious hills Harrison seriously steep hills. So my first several years I didn't even drive the car I wrote in the car but every time I needed to go somewhere around town in this is also quite European I would ride a bike or just walk and I. I. Suppose somewhere in the back of my mind, I was trying to avoid driving his car. Driving stick shift on these hills. I do think it was sort of in the back of my mind but one day I couldn't avoid it. I had to go somewhere and it involved going this extremely steep hill and I I don't know what gear was when I started going up this hill probably third gear or second gear. But definitely, not first gear which I now know is the Gary I should should've been in it's this. It's actually not street it's almost like driveway that goes up the steep steep steep hill to get to this really Nice Hotel which now that I think about it as the hotel where. I had my wedding banquet years after that. So I'm driving up this hill and everything's going fine until you know you know that the car starts to go, I can't do it in this gear. You'RE GONNA have to help me out and I had you know I I just had so little experience with something like this that I didn't really even know how to downshift, which is what I needed to do and I don't remember the details. It was so traumatic that I think I probably blocked a lot of it out but let's say I started in third gear maybe I managed to ship shift down to second gear But in any case, you've already imagined what happened, which is that I get halfway up this hill or a third of the this hill not only was it very steep, but it was very long I mean it's it's quite a ways of this hill and I get only part of the way up the hill and the car stalls and stops. So I'm sitting there in a car that is not running. It is stopped in the middle of this hill I'm in the middle of nowhere I'm in the car alone and I thought okay I can do this. I can do this but I was panicking I was I mean I Kept telling myself I can do this but I, just knew that I couldn't. So I you know I, put my one foot on the on the oh I'm so nervous telling the story that I can't even think of the words I put one foot on the clutch and foot on the break and I start the car so I'm like, okay good will it's running I, managed to start again and then I just had no idea how to get this thing going up this hill because I knew that as soon as I took my up the break, it would roll backwards I. Now know that use the parking brake to make sure. It's sort of a game between the clutch floor and the hand on the break, which I still am not able to deal with even many many years later. But that day I was just a complete virgin
Resilient Leadership in Anxious and Uncertain Times
"Welcome to extraordinary women radio Christine. I am so excited to have you join me today. I know this is going to be so much fun. You and I are long long time Pals and I am just thrilled to have you hear me to thank you for having me. Yeah, and you've got so many interesting stories. I know you're going to be sharing with us today. We we've talked a little bit about this direction that we're going to go in and and I know that you were sitting in meditation this week actually thinking about you know, what is it that wants the flow through you and this week on this conversation and I love first of all you were doing that because that's there's so much Beauty and stopping & pausing and listening to that inner wisdom that's there for us to find jobs then being able to hear Hear that message that that bubbles up and I know you and I have had many many conversations about this and what I know it came up for you was accepting when it's time to Pivot off and I love this first of all, and it's it's funny because any of my listeners are going to go wait a minute you've been talking about it's not about the pivot and sometimes it's not about a pivot in this crazy or sometimes. We really have to stand in our truths and and who we are and just show up and serve our our people and at the same time there's definitely times and places. Where would we need to Pivot? And I know that's a theme that has been showing up for you for multiple years in different ways. You've been very courageous and brave and how you should up in your pivot should tell us a little bit. Why you think that's the topic that came it came up for you on this. Sometimes we don't know what's going to come up right part of it makes no true. Right right opening to The Unknown. So this definitely wasn't coming from you know, this song theoretical analytical part of my brain now, I will say I may have been influenced because I've been watching the NBA finals and you know, there's there's a pendant in basketball who knows that that had anything to do with the it's okay. So I'm going to add you on that because guess what I used to play basketball in high school and we had the best coach we're off we had he taught us how to Pivot and this really strong space where we when we pivot we pivot with our body and we'd hold the ball in front of us and we'd pivot which keeps you safe from them, you know, having a foul or anything like that. There's such strength in that so I'm just going to let that keep moving off of that that theme you know, and as you know in basketball, you can't pivot all the time off. Like to your point there's a time in the game when you strategically go up on you know, you always leave one foot on the ground right when you pivot right? You're not home, right? Very good. You think about like you leave that one foot and then you literally can pivot 360 degrees with a ball and I say there is wisdom in knowing when to let go off all and win to let come what needs to come into your life. And so for some reason that seems to be the overriding theme that came through Thursday. So tell us some of your I know you've got multiple stories of pivoting. Where do you want to start share a little share a little share a bit about you and just your journey that's gotten you to this point. I know you've built this amazing incredible company and I'm always so proud of the work that you know, you are doing in the world. I just go look at the work you're doing and I'm very exciting. For you, but you have a you have some some big pivots you've made. Very much. So and I was thinking all the way back to 1994. So somebody do the math. You'll figure out that that was a long time ago. And at that point I was living in San Francisco that place of my dreams. I had the dream job working in Corporate America and knowing that this was I thought this is it off. This is where I'm going to be and a pivot came and that pivot brought me to Denver where I transitioned from my corporate career, which was advertising sales in the high tech magazine publishing industry. I pivoted to being a stay-at-home mom and I would put those in quote stay at home because I don't know any mom who stays at home and I certainly didn't wage and for a number of years. I took a detour from my professional career to raise three children by kept one foot in the professional world all the time whether it was dead, Marketing Consulting sales, I even became a book publishing coach at at some time

"Throughout my whole training life in Fort Bragg and then it carson and your a car is just this very safe place you know when you can turn the AC on if it's hot if it's warm it's this small notion of privacy. You see you don't have a car and basic training. You have zero privacy but when we have a car you have a little bit of freedom and if you're able to use your car for whatever reason before formation or just in general you have so much that is just creature comforts and Dr Driving off base in Colorado with basically everything I owned in the back of that truck and I just cried on the way off base and I couldn't believe it because this was supposed to be this really positive step in my life I was going to go get reunited with the love of my life and it was going to be. It was post to feel different and already just hugely missed my my team. I missed that way of life and I I felt like I was abandoning them and they were going to go back to war and I wanted to go with them now is uniquely not uniquely. I was well trained in America's is to to be on the front lines and continue to serve and I believe in our mission in regardless of you don't always get to choose the destination that you go and that's fine right. I believe that when America says it's time to go. I want to be the kind of person that says. Send me and so that that was the sacrifice of the individuality that I was very willing to submit to the team into the mission into our country and it just felt like I was losing all all of that and and so you know eventually your tears dry and you wake up in you. You learn how to be resilient again but it was just it was as you go. Where where's where's the plant right? So I I drove back to Florida where my mom was and I was just GonNa put my stuff my car and storage and then I was getting on a plane to fly to Africa to go live with emily. Because you know I was now her dependent right so it just was atypical. Because I had not gone with her out of the gates I mean it was. You know you're supposed to be together. That's kind of how this stuff works. I mean a community of two. That's a foundational community. Sometimes Times you and your dog sometimes it's you and your family but it's that's a community and that is very important in not only my life but our lives and so you know that was the plan. Drop my stuff off. Get on a plane and fly. I did that and it was just as weird as it. was that Christmas before four. It was just a lot weirder. Just everything was just nothing. Felt right and I didn't have mission or purpose. She you know oh she. She was used to operating alone. I mean she was hurting her dog Java right and so you know that was her life hundred hours a week by Wednesday twenty four four seven all the time and then I'm showing up almost like deadweight because I got this. I got this sort of chip on my shoulder because I just gave up everything to be with her her and you know it was just very. It's not fun you know. This sounds like a nightmare. Because 'cause you're showing up there you just got out of special forces you just got back from these deployments and you have been turned burnin working twenty hour days for the past however many years and then you show up. And she's in the middle of that exact lifestyle and you like I'm going to watch more. TV Right now. I mean this it was horrible. There is nothing to do right so I even applied for jobs at the embassy. I'm thinking how do I serve for the next year because she was gonna be there for the next year. How do I do something here for the next year and literally the only job available that I could get was as the janitor of the embassy and I'm as as reference earlier I'm not above mopping the floors and cleaning the head? I was not ready for that at that time in my life though. That's just not what I couldn't go from this. This thinking that this vision that I had for myself and working with these guys on this team to on the janitor pushing them up at the embassy. Oh by the way you know my my wife on the top floor in this you know really he cool job. She's saving America. Yeah on the front line frontlines. And I'm doing nothing but commuting head and so it flicks we didn't even exist. At that time there was armed forces network was all that we got and so then. It's it's me and Java at the House right and this is where this was the beginning of my life turning into that bad country song where a guy's got his dog and his sort of bottle of whiskey and all of his sorrows and I ended up only being in in Africa for about two months wants and then I it was like we're this just isn't worried. This is to miserable to endure. It wasn't sort of like we. We hate each other by any stretch. And oh by the way I'll get to the point somewhere down the line where we got divorced and then we eventually got back together. We're together now right right so it's even ten times messier but at at this point we were just really good friends and we had gone to the well for too long and I just didn't wasn't a part of her journey and she wasn't a part of mine and we were trying to make it work and we said okay. Well we'll skip to the end and that just didn't work doc. And so I'm I'm flying back to Solo you laughed where you're like. Yeah this is do you leave on. Hey with probably not going to work or did you leave Yvonne like okay. Well I'm going to go figure some stuff out America. She's going to stay. We still thinking is going to stay together at this point. Hope is not a strategy and we were at best hoping and it just just if felt like a sledgehammer when you rolled out where you kind of like. Yeah this is probably the end of it or do not want to say this on the air right. No no I mean I think it was just already originally. It was just very confusing. I mean for me and this was very mutual by the way this was not all me or all her. This was both of us and and it was. You know she didn't want to. She didn't want to bend her lifestyle for me. I mean where. She thinks she was going to stay on the agency forever at this point right so I mean this is how this was the ultimate irony. Was that part of the journey that I wanted was to join ground branch the CIA. That's I started mike span rest in peace when when we on our heroes it will inspire further service in that had inspired service in me and so I didn't know anybody in that process of hiring to get to ground branch. I didn't know anybody. And I eventually started. And made it through and became a green beret. In in in Emily's training I met lots of people in ground branch in they became friends of ours and so it was kind of. Hey why don't you just come back and go go through the process. I mean that's how it works if you know someone you're more of a trusted person and especially in that place. The agency's always looking for things to do with spouses. I mean and if you can because you're already trusted Right I mean there's risks in that job of of leaks and all that stuff that you have to trust your spouse and so if felt like okay well I guess I can go do that and so started re applying for some of that stuff but frankly I mean I was not in the. I didn't have the head space at that time too. I went from hero zero real fast and I'm sleeping on my buddy slanted floor couch. You know apartments with the slanted floor on his couch in New York and the lower east side for four months. I I mean he's a bartender. Most of the only times I leave the place. I'm going for his shift to drink free booze at where he was working. I mean it was just it was I mean call it what you want some state of depression or not having mission or purpose in in my life and feeling feeling like now. I don't have no job. No mission. No purpose no wife which I was kind of banking on as the foundation for the rest of my life. You expect something to go a certain way and it doesn't. That's harder than just knowing that something's going to be miserable the whole time and so it was just this one of those things. Where emanate stayed in touch? We took a trip to Morocco together and it was still weird and then eventually you know she came back to eventually. You guys has need to go to a place like Hawaii or you know the Bahamas keep going random African nations that are in turmoil. Yeah I want to think through that thing from uncle job over here the other part of this is. I'm actually insufferable on a beach with nothing to do right insufferable. What am am I supposed to do? You can serve. I wish I could. You can try. I can try. You're right it can be really bad at it until I'm westbound the same places without security checkpoints checkpoints is what I'm advisor. Yeah got your reference. So we're kind of in touch again and doing this weird long distance thing and it just it just kept getting worse and worse and worse and it's sort of confused. She comes back to America and has Java and Java formed a really big bond with him well it was in Africa. 'cause he was kind of my only job and Francis Francis was our our housekeeper and sort of almost like M's chief of staff for the house she would have parties to over to house or she would host people or whatever and he was. Just make that train rope and I became really good friends friends with him and he was my best friend in Java and I was at the House all day and for a period of months and this is anyway really a fast transition to doing nothing and having no purpose so eventually she comes back and it's still really bad and we're just sort of subjecting ourselves to further misery right but you say you hope. Oh this is going to get better. It's going to get better or how's it going to get better right. I mean something's gotTa give and and then eventually you just you can't endure it anymore and so it's like you know she's like Hey I'm I'm done so went through that I stalled that because I'm and the eternal optimist right. I mean this everything can work out if given enough time and then it almost becomes a competition of who can suffer more right right and I think I can suffer a lot and I'm willing to kind of be that kind of martyr if left to if left in a situation where I want what I want. I'll suffer almost anything and so eventually you just move on and you know. I started business school which I had applied to and I also had this little hobby for go rock. That was kind of nothing at at that time but she had actually recommended it the first time I went to Africa because I built her a go bag. Builder go rock and that was something that then I just was applying what I didn't war. You have a go bag. You put it in the trunk of the Humvee in case vehicle GEICO gets disabled. And you've got to fight right so you have bombs and guns and batteries all that kind of stuff and just extra supplies that you don't want to have on your back all the time I'm and you might as well have more if the if the trucks going to carry it around with you so are for you. So I'd done that for her and made one at her house and made and some others for some of the other folks that she was working with at the embassy and when I was trying to figure out what to do we were trying to figure out what I could do. She's like you should do the go rock thing and that just kind of meant teach people what you know from special forces or go.

"Drop. Well, clearly location games in Santa Clara, California up by in the bay area. The two teams are in the south twenty six hundred mile drive, very expensive flights very expensive hotel, and it takes place on a Monday night. Right. When work is back in session, schools back in session hard to get that time off the other part is just familiarity. This isn't rally your dad or family or get your your college friends together and make one trip to the title game. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. These guys are here. Every year is a pretty good chance. It's Alabama Clemson next year that game is in New Orleans. You just wait. It's nice easier drive. So that's really the two factors. But this is sort of an instinct classic third time in the last four years they face off. And I'm sure that one of the thoughts going into California was hey, let's spread the game around. Let's try to get some national interest. Just like the NFL has in their product when they have the Super Bowl all of country. It is. Is that the right model for college football? Well, it's kind of a catch twenty two you do this. And nobody comes. The bay area's not a college football area when they had the Super Bowl are few years ago. Denver and Carolina the money that is in the Silicon Valley and San Francisco drove the ticket prices to a then record high. So they're football fans there there's not into college football. But it's tough this this event lacks Pac twelve teams the last few years not made it no big ten teams things like that have kind of made this feel a little bit like, it's a southern invitational. As much as a national championship the way other NCAA titles are that's the tough one though. Because if your college football, you're saying, look, I mean. Yeah. Alabama and Clemson great. But I don't know if the game is going to be there next year if it's somebody else, then we're parking the game in the south all the time. Isn't that a problem for them? Absolutely. Again. What are you going to do? I mean, there's no denying these are the two best teams and so- Alabama and Clemson have earned the right to be here and trying to rig that to try to be more popular wouldn't be wouldn't be the right idea. Low ticket prices aren't necessarily a bad idea. Either. Maybe some people get to go the game that normally wouldn't because you can get in for a hundred and thirty one hundred twenty bucks right now. But what college football has not been able to do with this playoff over the last five years is true. We turn it self into a national sport. When you have an area of the country, like northern California, basically yawning and saying we're not interested that doesn't show that this has captured the imagination of the country the way, I think they thought when they designed this playoff how much do you think the bowl system impacts all of this? Well, the bowl system gets in the way of certain things in that the semi finals or the title game aren't played on January first except once every three years because the Rose Bowl in the sugarbowl aren't going to give up their time slot. So you play the semi finals on a Saturday between not an ideal time yet low ratings in part because of the blowout nature of these games. The bulls get in the way, they're trying to wrap this playoff around an existing bowl system. There's all sorts of special interest. There's outside forces college football continues to outsource its most profitable product these games to these private bowls. The NFL the AFC championship game. The NFC championship game the Super Bowl they control at all. And they don't have third operatives or worry about the tourism industry of some of these places or any other things it's all about how do we maximize it for the fans the players and the bottom wants to grade which what ball doesn't do that is a great point you want to see those games on new year. But that playoff couple of days. Earlier is very complicating for college football, Dan. Thank you so much. Appreciate the time. Thanks, Ron well coming up Steph.

But right now, it's obvious that Nick Boles makes this football team, much better football. Let me ask you another question. NFL ratings NFL doesn't get a lot of credit for what they do. Right. But the NFL ratings are five percent this year. That's big when you consider the TV ratings in general or down. You're talking about many. If not most of the top fifty things that you've seen on TV have been NFL games. What do you attribute the gains to look at offense? Great almost Patrick Mahomes lit up this year. You saw the excitement around that Baker Mayfield a young rookie company. I think the youth movement at the quarterback position has really elevated the ratings and people are just tuning in. My kids are coming up. Eighteen nineteen twenty years old are tuning in to watch Baker Mayfield tuning in to watch those Patrick Mahomes and a lot of that fantasy as well. The big points the highlights that's what they want to see. And I think that's what we're seeing right now, we're seeing a youth movement at the quarterback position. I think we're going to see the.

"And once we'll be looking for a new deal. But foles in talking about is playoff experience responded as a level-headed veteran quarterback would it's like I've been talking about just focusing on the Moines today, the most important thing is Wednesday. So that's the thing. I learned is you know, it can you can make as big as you want it or you can make it a small, and I choose to make it smaller. So I can just hone in on what I gotta focus on today. Gotta love the Mark Jackson like kidney, candy store and NFL analyst joins me. Now, love them. Right. Talk about the quarterback quandary that the eagles and ravens have. Okay. So in Baltimore, you've got this youngster Jackson taken over for flacco, wet risks. Do you think there are for the ravens when they put up young guy like Jackson with a Super Bowl went around the bend? None. There are no risk. Because you've you look at it. If you're a fifty fifty two guys in locker room of the fifty two the three you're sitting here, you're watching Lamar Jackson play lights out in your six and one you're going to rally behind that guy. And I think that's the situation right now. We're looking at a quarterback who's carried this team changed everything not only on the opposite side of the ball. But deep until the entire mentality of this team has changed since Lamar Jackson took the hell if you're down twenty four to nothing in the second quarter and a playoff game. And you got flacco on the bench who's won a Super Bowl. You gotta let them sit there. No. I think you can utilize guy like Joe flacco up you're down. But we haven't seen. That we haven't seen that presence of that. We've seen this team play legitimate football can't City Chiefs where they got into it back and forth. They went back and love. Lamar Jackson hill does own. It took Patrick Mahomes to convert or or down to win that put ballgame. He's played against up rivers. He's played against great quarterbacks in the last six seven weeks, and he's held his own. I don't think they get down especially with that. They don't get down. I don't think he was going to. I don't think we're going to see Joe flacco the remainder of the season. I'll just put it to you that right? The same next season. No plant, not not not as a Baltimore raven. I I think the changing of the guard has come. It's Lamar Jackson. So speaking to change in the guard. And I know Philly fans are gonna wonder what's going on here. You got foles who's lead them to glory. Now back again in the playoffs. You got Wednesday young star. They got a choice to make at the end of the season. So what do you think they do with these two quarterbacks? I know I'm jumping ahead. What I listen. I think this week will vote. No, we can't Pam Bo. We're gonna find out a lot this week. Philadelphia. Eagles are traveling to the Chicago Bears. There bears defense has been a lights out all season long lit by Khalil Mack. If Nick foles goes roles in two Sakado and wins that ballgame we got a controversy on our hand. We simply put because we've seen this same story last year. We saw Nick Boles take this same team at the end of the season in go on a winning went rampage and go in and win the Super Bowl. Nick Boles makes this team better offense. We didn't hear about Alcyone Jeffrey all season long until Nick foles came in Aguiar disappeared a lot. We we didn't see the weapons that they had. We knew Zach was there all season long exact ROY breaks, the all time tied in go with a young guy that gives one at the number two pick on who's been so good for you. All..

"We saw what happened with Levy on bell. They managed to do just fine. It seemed at least for most of the season offensively despite the fact that they were without the third be in that three in the big been Antonio Brown on bell trio. So I think the Steelers are capable of doing it in. There is something to be said for addition by subtraction. I think if he is I'm not in that locker room, and I'm certainly not going to jump out here. And pretend like I know how bad Antonio Brown is for that locker room. But if Mike Tomlin and the rest of the organization believes that his presence is a detriment and to the mentality of that team. I don't think that there is any amount of touchdowns that can make up for that. So on the flip side, Mike Tomlin coach here. And I think there is this impression that you got the Browns situation you have the Levy on bell situation. Something's going on with that environment. What do you make of that impression? I think it's a fair impression. There's certainly something going on. And this is not happening while it does happen in lots of locker rooms, it's not happening in every lock them right now. I don't know. I think it depends on it's kind of a bit of a war shock test. When you how you feel about? Mike Tomlin because I think you can look at this and say, wow, Mike Tomlin has done an amazing job kind of making this team as competitive as it's been over the past several years one Super Bowl. I think he's one twenty six and or one twenty five and sixty six has a record one of the best in the league. He's been to two and one Super Bowl, you could say, wow, it's amazing that he's done this in a situation where you can look at it and say man, Mike Tomlin's really lost control of his team. I think it's fair probably two two draw either conclusion based on the information that we have I'm going to look at a guy who's been to Super Bowls in one one Super Bowl and say we should give him the benefit of his out. He's earned it. Okay. So you give them the benefit of the doubt. But I have to ask this everybody always talks about having the players coach. And how great that is. And obviously he's got that reputation as well. But is it possible that maybe when when in this role as a player coach that things have become a little bit too lax? I think it's certainly possible. I don't necessarily think it's true. I don't know that we have a lot of evidence to support that. I think what happened here in this in this situation is is kind of a one off. And we could look at what happened in in. Minnesota would with feeling and cousins yelling at each player's emotions run high. I'm a I'm a player I've been in locker rooms where we had to Pro Bowl players come to a fistfight before. And we were still just fine. The next day like that happens in football. I think Antonio Brown's personality may be one standard deviation away from the main as far as most players NFL. But generally those locker rooms a tough situations and being able to manage those. Locker rooms requires coaches to make some judgement. Call sometimes they pay off. Sometimes they backfire would say over the long run for Mike Tomlin a judgment calls that he's made have paid off. And I think most theaters fans would agree. Okay. We'll see if you can make the right judgment call with Antonio Brown. But of course, takes two to Tango to make this right? Dominic. Thank you so much. No problem. Thank you. Now onto teams actually in the NFL playoffs of the eight teams this weekend vying to advance to hope to do so with signal callers who were backups just weeks ago in Baltimore.

Touchdown catches at one hundred and twenty more total receptions than any other NFL receiver over the last six seasons, but Willie be a Steeler next year. Antonio brown. Sagas are big stories today. A macro to speculate on trays and things of that nature. We haven't formally received the request in that regard. So I'm not gonna speculate seems like everyone else is given what's been happening between the team and star white out Antonio Brown. Head coach Mike Tomlin attempting to stem controversy from Brown's allegedly getting into it with a teammate and subsequent practice. No-shows? They didn't being sidelined for the team season. Finale made news for what he didn't say an answering the question did Brown quit on the team. You know, you can describe it in whatever ways you want to describe it. But there was a lack of communication there. The bottom line is that we're playing significant game. He didn't do a good enough job of communicating or being available in hours leading up to that performance. And since yesterday's news conference Brown has been putting himself out there in more ways than one here. He is and this video with James Harrison promising his own tell presser that never materialized, but what did. This appearance as a hippo on the new FOX show, the mask singer singing what else Bobby Brown's my prerogative? That was obviously taped weeks if not longer ago, but the timing is interesting Dominic Foxworth writer for the undefeated and former NFL player joins us. All right. So dominate. There's what the rumor mill says about him possibly being traded in. What's fact, he cost twenty million against the cap if they trade him, so should they? Yeah. I don't think. Well, first of all, I think the cap numbers a little different. I know that that's the dead money. But I think that's assuming if they if he makes it to his salary. I make from what I understand that the cap if they trade him before his roster bonus which is in early March they can get about recoup about fifteen million of that that they don't have to pay roster bonus. They don't have to pay in salary. But I do think it's still a hit on the field for them. But if there's any team that I think is capable of withstanding hit. It's definitely the Steelers. They seem to be kind of like a wide receiver factory where every couple of years they bring out a new all pro wide receiver, and they. Have experienced in having a dealing with a major hole in Iraq..
