The crisis of predatory publishers sucking the blood of science

"This is an ABC podcast. This is science fiction. Hey, I'm the Tesha Mitchell. Welcome. This week the pursuit of a predator as a reporter, you get all kinds of of little suggestions tips complaints. And you know, you can't deal with them. All this one. Intrigued me I had started to hear about similar complaints, and sort of once you hear enough of them the signal adds up. And you think oh, well, maybe there's a story here. What was I seeing what what the clues that that made you smell? A rash was a researcher myself. I was a faculty librarian at my university. And I did a research. Probably starting. Five six years ago. I was always looking for publishing opportunities. I started getting letters, and I started to receive these emails sort of saying extremely nice things to me that basically said call for paper journal editors wanting me to submit my manuscript to their journal and they had lots of grammatical errors. In addition to that one in the emails, and generally, speaking editors don't say nice things about you. And they don't typically they don't write to you and ask you to submit a manuscript will you ever attempted to submit no. I mean, I'm a clinical epidemiologist and some of these journals were lifted from soil science, why would somebody from Swail signs Bianchi me and saying nice things about me. They wouldn't know me from anywhere. He's smell. I did maybe several. But that rat will several thousand rats they now well and truly on the loose predatory publishes and the predatory journals have become a major industry global enrich and in destructive potential. In fact, you're going to hear from someone who believes these industry represents the biggest threat to science since the inquisition. The US federal court has just ordered one of the biggest of these companies to pay up over fifty million US dollars owned makes international headquartered in Hajer bed India, but also operating in the US climbs to publish more than seven hundred scientific and medical journals. It was found to employ deceptive business practices to entice on tests to other published in the journals or participating conferences, so does the ruling site by predatory publishes. Well, let's see if any of that money, actually. Moves anywhere is not clear with a group will cough up that fifty million dollars, which is an estimate of how much the company made from customers over a six-year period all whether will appeal we sent a list of questions to its representatives. But yet to receive a reply, but it is nice clear. Message to all the sake journal publishers of the world that they're being watched and their consequences. Joan by Hanan a science journalist and now director of science at an artificial intelligence startup in San Fran cold primer that basically slipping under the radar and using American Canadian European banks to move money millions of dollars of money from illicit gains. So this court ruling basically makes that extremely inconvenient to do. Now Joan was asked to present evidence. In the case brought against the group by the US Federal Trade Commission because hate head and unusual in Canada with the publisher. So. So was one of hundreds of publishers that I tested in sting operation, I root some computer code to generate thousands of very bad scientific papers. In what have been next kind of legendary in sawn circles back in twenty twelve John was reporting for the general size, and the expression predatory journals wasn't in common news. There was a guy named Jeffrey. Beal who was probably the only person around making a big public stink about this and trying to actually shine a light on it. It was a very very bold effort. He had something called feels list, or at least it became known as Beal's last Miami's Jeffrey Beal, and I'm a retired academic librarian from university of Colorado. Denver buffet, said Beal Beal's, blacklist fame and climb and notoriety. He was the first to coin the fries predatory journals of a journal publishers hated being on the list because it stigmatized them and meant that their income was decreased. Most of the predatory publishers are predatory not only in their publishing. But in just the way they operate in general, and they would use the. Heckler's veto. They would call the library director and complain about me, and they would try to annoy people at my university as much as possible in order to manipulate those people at the university to make me stop the list. So that their complaints would stop. I also received several threats of legal action, including think it was in twenty twelve international threaten to sue me for one billion dollars one billion dollars. It was just a threat what I learned from it is that you can basically pay an attorney five hundred dollars in. All right, a threatening letters. So they they did that. But they never followed through with it. It was never introduced in any court consequences for Jeffrey of running that black least would immense and I'll come back to that. One estimate suggests that there at least eight thousand predatory generals. I makes is just one publisher of many that Jeffrey Bill provocatively Kohl's it the evil empire of predatory publishing iced. I stand by that statement, and what they do is. They have really hurt a lot of people, you know, the scholarly publishing system works on the honor system and people operate in good faith, but omitted or national has has totally broken all that down. They use a lot of spamming to solicit article manuscripts from researchers. They have journal titles that match the titles of respected journals. So usually one word off enough to confuse people that might be the respected journal in the field. They will add people's names to their editorial boards without the person's permission people from top universities top researchers in the field in the to use their identity to promote the journal. And when the person finds out about it and ask them to remove their name. They don't remove it. They just leave it there because they're operating from foreign country. There's really nothing you can do about it. And they specially prey on young researchers in emerging researchers researchers who. Who don't speak English as their first language. It's not just scientists from developing countries that a targeted although that Eason acknowledged problem clinical epidemiology, David mo- assays the crosses reaches into some of America's most delayed institutions, including Harvard in analysis that we did where we looked at a close to two thousand articles published in predator journals, we found that actually the most frequent corresponding authors were from what we would call first world countries countries with lots of money and lots of resources that is troubling very very troubling. Because it suggests that at these institutions authors may not be aware of predatory journals, and we need to oversee ramp up some educational activities people think that they're sending manuscripts to a legitimate respected journal when it's religious the phony oryx international journal, and then they quickly accept the paper without any pure of you and. Then send them an invoice. And that point the authors realized that something is wrong because the there was really no period done yet, the papers accepted, and they have this two thousand dollar invoice that comes through Email in the mix demanding payment. Most of them asked to withdraw the paper when they realize that they've been duped. But then omits says you can't withdraw your paper unless you pay us withdrawal and often than omits will publish the article quickly in one of their journals. And then they can't submit it anywhere else because then that would be duplicate submission. It would be publishing the same article twice which is something not supposed to do. Nothing about predatory journals. What he's supposed to happen in science. As John Bohannon discovered when he said, the taste. Yes. So I just wanted to data. It's frustrating to have such an enticing story of you know, bad actors that potentially Ricky and millions of ill-gotten dollars and not get some hard data to find out if it's true. So we pay AM molecular biology from Oxford Oppy slave, he plotted an experiment, which was pretty straightforward. And the idea nutshell is if I submit a really, and I mean, truly bad scientific paper to your journal, and you accept it with no sign of any peer review, and you asked me for money, then you're uric journal publisher. Yeah. Joan wanted to taste how easy it was to get published in a predatory journal. It can usually take many months used even to get a pipe into a reputable scientific journal, and even then it's not a given. That's partly because of what's called peer review essential to the scientific process. So you do an experiment. Hugh, wrought it up reporting results submitted to a journal, and then it gets pulled traits by a bunch of other scientists, and so it should that's peer review, it's designed to Cape science rigorous experiments well-designed the results real usable and reproducible many predatory journals site, I conduct p review about him fact, most of them don't appear of you. They go through the motions of peer review, they might have like a stock pure view that they used for every paper that's submitted. And basically the papers are accepted and just published almost immediately as soon as the invoices. Paid. And so pure review is it's it's a fundamental component of how honest journals carry out their business of looking at manuscripts and seeing whether they're fatally flawed or whether they can be improved whether they're acceptable for publication. Dive moa is director of the Santa fa- gentle Ola g at the auto a hospital were sich institute at the university of Ottawa. Hey in colleagues just hosted a global summit on predatory journals because they want to build a consensus IVA what they are and how to shut them down. So these sorts of behaviors and many other behaviors that are not trustworthy. Jiffy Beal when something is published in a scholarly journal that doesn't represent validated science than it pollutes the whole scientific record and can't build on junk science, or if you do then the future science isn't real science either. On science fiction on VCR, Iran. We may Natasha Mitchell, we're looking at predatory publishes and the threat they pose to science scholarship been truth. So back to science journalist, John Hannan, and he's sting operation own predatory journals. You wrote effect piper. In fact, you you actually wrote a computer program to rot hundreds of spoof papers. Yeah. Actually it. Sped up. Sounds of thousands. I ended up only needing hundreds he's computer program. Change, the authors, affiliations specific, chemicals cancer, cells and other ingredients. He's experiment, but the funding was pretty much the same and this Feick study was potentially. We'll changing. Yeah. It was a thrill could Cuba. Can't at this. John. I was basically claiming that this chemical that I found in this little lichens little plant like creature was able to kill cancer cells in solution. So, you know in principle, you could inject this stuff into your blood like you doing chemotherapy, and it would hopefully kill off cancer cells. And I had these very impressive charts showing the results. Very impressive. Yeah. At Feis value the pipe is sanded convincing, but I will say in with blaring eras, and this would take literally one minute just one glance really of any reasonable science who was to review of this paper. You just look at the numbers representing this charts. And they just make no sense at all. Just don't make any sense and the design of his experiment that was finally flowed to. I mean, these are the kind of mistakes that high school student would make these this isn't even college level mistakes. This is just like the biggest most embarrassing scientific mistake. You imagine this isn't subtle. And then Joan wind Aven Fuda. I just wanted to like bring it to the next level. So at the end of the paper, I have the authors say that, you know, the next thing we're going to do is test this in humans which to any reviewer should be the biggest red flag. I mean aside from the fact the science looks like completely junk, I mean, there's just completely unethical. They target a general suspected to be predatory including two run by group. One cold medicinal chemistry. Another biology amid Essen of eight months he submitted ten pipe is awake. And what happened next is incredible any reasonable publisher should have looked to that paper and said not in no way publishing this that a lot of journals d. Give us give us the very Murray. Doc stet's. Well, the darkest of dark stats is that sixty percent of the publishers accepted, my article so didata any of those sixty percent ask you to make any kind of amendments almost never when they did. It it involved formatting trivial changes that often they would ask me to add citations two papers that they'd published which is also by the really not a good practice. But no, they almost never did any substantial review and even in the few exceptions that DDP to conduct some kind of scientific peer review Jones piper was often accepted. Anyway, even after a damning review what's more to mainstream Totten's of signs publishing Elsa v and sage cold out much to their embarrassment. It was grim. That was not a great day for scientific publishing. And so yeah, over the course of that experiment. Too much. Months to finish. I just sort of got more and more pessimistic about the publishing world, it really changed. My view of the whole industry that I was a part of some people who have been caught up in the sting deed, contact me afterwards effect, we got at least one angry letter to the editor from one of these journals that got caught with its pants down. But I don't have that much sympathy for them because they had the one job. You know, if you're the editor of journal, all you gotta do is withhold the integrity of the journal, and you clearly weren't doing that his of the mole reputable journals think expect a sense of betrayal of trust. And I wonder what you'll response to these. Oh, yeah. Yeah. No, absolutely everyone craft all over. Old thing. How else would they have reacted? It was basically like taking a giant dump on their entire world. A couple of editors lost their jobs, but considering that they had jobs that a fake journal. I don't see that as such a big loss. So it he's a handful of us now in the industry. The predatory publishing industry has not gone away has not lift science infect indications that it has grown massively going strong. If you carried out the sting operation, again, what do you think might happen? I think the picture would probably be worse. If I were to do it again, though, I'll tell you what I would do is. I would send a sample papers to the publishers who have the more traditional model as well. It it's kind of a maze. Made that this whole problem that I uncovered was dismissed by many for the simple fact that I hadn't also submitted fake papers to different kinds of journals at so they felt like they were being unfairly picked on. So eat some people in the open access publishing movement. And it's a passionate movement. Did I think that you had unfairly targeted the in particular? Oh, yeah. Absolutely. They dragged me through the mud. It was really important claiming Michelle for the traditional scientific publishing world, which is hilarious. If you've know me at all, it's really quite the opposite. I'm quite an advocate for open access everything. But whatever fine, so journalist Joan Bohannon. The confusion between the open access publishing movement, and predatory journals ease perhaps for another edition of the show. It's controversial you say both charge authors to publish the pipers. Instead of slugging raiders all subscribe is with phase. So the open access argument for that. He's that that opens up scientific knowledge naval before freezing up from behind traditional journal piles, but some believe these autho pies model creates an inherent conflict of interest, and that predatory publishes of titan advantage of that in order to build prophets and the taking advantage of scientists to who had disparate to get published in the publishable perish culture of science. Some of them are taking up the offer because they're being tricked by the predatory publishers. And that's why I use the term predatory because they're preying on them. They're they're preying on their weaknesses that people need to get published. So people. Are earning degrees. People are getting promotions. At universities. People are earning tenure in some cases based on a publications in low quality fake, predatory journals that don't conduct any peer review and have almost no selectivity at all they accept everything. And we've also learned that pharmaceutical companies are publishing their research to justify the efficacy of their new medicines. And are using predatory journals to do that as well. What do you think the K drive is of the predatory general sane has been? It's easy money. As Jeffrey beals Blackley stove. Predatory journals grew in influence as did he's reputation publishes and others. Pushed back angrily at him at he's criteria for inclusion on the least at he's lone ranger approach, and he senior antagonism of open access publishing. Some went straight to his universities, later, sheep to attack his credibility. And he became a kind of hybrid of hero in pariah. Had it is university respond for the most part for the first few years. They were supportive of me and legal office. Did help me could I some tricky situations. You know that I'd gotten in because of the threats from the publishers, but towards the end, I think they grew weary of me and the support decreased we have received pressure to shut Daniel blog from your university. I received a pressure, but it wasn't pressure to shut down the block. Doug things became increasingly uncomfortable towards the end before I retired every tired of year ago. Did it become uncomfortable? The university did that some things I used to have an office, and they took me out of an office and put me into a cubicle. They hired a new person to work in the library. He had two years of library experience. And they made him be my supervisor, and you know, part of predatory publishing. There's a broader context to it. There's a social movement behind open access publishing a lot of people want to kill off the traditional publishers and have them all replaced with open access journals. So that everybody throughout the world connects us all published research, and it's very left wing social movement. And so the person that came in as my supervisor was among among those people, and so we had strikingly different ideologies about scholarly publishing. So that was way that they appreciate me. Why did you Dan bills? Least in in two thousand seventeen it has. Reincarnated with anonymous editors in some sense to protect themselves from what you went through. But why did you decide to shut it down in January about your learned that the university was working with one of the publishers on my list and the result of that was that the university initiated a research misconduct investigation against me. And I knew I hadn't engaged in any research misconduct myself because research misconduct means falsification fabrication or plagiarism by definition. And I knew I hadn't done any of that yet. They started this case against me. And I felt very stigmatized by it and that kind of sealed it for me with the university. I, you know, they take another action against me. And now here was something major research misconduct case. And that's why I decided to stop the list. What was the come of that case the outcome in July of twenty seventeen was no real? Search misconduct found headed that. Make you feel made me feel horrible. I felt like my own university that I worked at for seventeen years was turning against me. And I felt stigmatized and I felt like I really can continue the work. And that's why I shut down the blog and the lists. Do you think that Beal's least was a trigger for that action? Sure. It was the publisher that they worked with was was a big one, and the predatory publishers the ones that are doing really well are rich. They have lots and lots of money. They can hire lawyers to go after people and they can organize. Well, and there are several very large very successful predatory publishers out there, and and they have a lot of power, and they will go after anybody who threatens their income was that the publisher was frontiers. So you desist them to be predatory publisher. Yeah. I had lots of. Evidence from stuff that they had published in the published an article about Chem trails in the sky Cam spiracy, THEO. Yeah, they published an article about that which they quickly retracted after I wrote a blog post about it. They published an article saying that doesn't cause aids. So I had lots of lots of solid evidence that they weren't really conducting valid period view. I mean, that's bad science. It's not necessarily making them predatory publish plenty of crap lanes up in good journals. But it gets gets retracted and publishing junk science is one of the criteria that used to evaluate publishers. I mean, you're if you submit an article to publisher thinking, it's a good publisher when they're publishing crap science poor science that is a type of predation against on us researchers. They don't want to be associated with junk science as space in full university of Colorado Dame where Jeffrey held a tenured faculty position would not call me on any research misconduct in. Instigation but told Sant's friction the university coat defended and supported professor bills academe eight freedom to pursue predatory publishing as pot of his scholarship. Junk is the saw it seem predatory journals. You in colleagues have conducted a study to analyze the quality of the research. The studies that Mike eating too that are accepted by predatory journals what's striking divisions. Did you make the quick Chang? Co messages at the quality reporting of these articles is really horrendously bad epidemiologist dive moa at the university of oughta when we compare that to what we might consider as legitimate literature. It's very very much worse. And that's not to say that there aren't problems in the quality reporting of legitimate journal are, but when we moved to predatory journals it suggests that there's the screening that's going on. So for example, we consider peer review in a sense of screen of the integrity and the scientific composer of the research. Which is perhaps not going on many of these papers are funded by reputable agencies and so in a country like Canada where much research is paid out of taxpayer dollars. It it's really very very wasteful it scientifically, very problematic. It won't be seeing won't be cited. And of course, it's a waste of money. And it may also contribute to sort of adding layers fakeness to what people are trying to get at is the truth because they don't conduct a proper period view and their publishing bogus signs. If you have an agenda, nonscientific agenda or a pseudoscientific agenda. You can use predatory publishers to publish your work. You know to the biggest open questions in in science are what is the nature of dark matter. And what is the nature of dark energy? This is from cosmology. And there's no. Scientific consensus as to the answers to those two questions and their big big questions in cosmology and physics the biggest questions of all I think so but those questions have been answered many times in predatory journals. There's lots of people writing articles claiming that they've discovered the answers to those questions in the predatory publishers are happy to accept them as long as the authors pay the fee, and they're published. There's some out there that would happily publish your paper saying that that scenes 'cause autism or that there's no global warming occurring or that nuclear power is is going to destroy everybody a bread causes cancer. Anything you want to write you can write it, and they'll publish it long as you pay the fee dated Melissa's that like fake news. Scientists NC sins end clinicians and Nastro going to distinguish fact from fiction in predatory publications and he wants a global observatory set up to scrutinize they practices. The the problem is that many of these predatory journals. They are now making their way into trusted sources over example, for many researchers clinicians patients they may look at a PubMed put out by the national library medicine, the United States and big data vice of scientific papers a huge daughter basin. And what we see is that they're getting infiltrated with articles from predatory journals that are funded by esteemed institutions funding institutions such as the national institutes of health. And what is the patient to do? What's clinician to do will these people make decisions based on on on that sort of evidence? And I think that that's an incredibly problematic. Jeffrey Bill believes I'm mixing national will survive despite the recent US federal fifty million. Court ruling against them. But we'll save science from the sorts of publishes of predatory journals. I don't see the problem going away. In fact, in some in a lot of countries open. Access advocates have been successful at getting governments to pass laws requiring federally funded work to be published in open access journals. So there when the predatory publishers here about these laws, they are ecstatic about them because it helps them because a certain percentage of the people are going to be publishing in the predatory journals whether by mistake or or intentionally they will be the market the market is there, and it's encoded in LA now, increasingly so then had a we still the excess movement which many says a pulse ity thing you don't from being infiltrated predatory publishes. I don't know way to stop them publishers have freedom of the press. And there's really no. Laws. They're not breaking the laws in most cases, unless they engage in dentistry Pfaff door other things like that. But for the most part they're completely sanctioned by by governments because of freedom of the press. John hannan. I think we're gonna have to reinvent how we do things this old fashioned way of submitting a paper and having some mysterious peer review that no one ever sees happened behind curtain and results in. Yes. Or no, I think we may have to really put some effort into alternative models, and they do exist. It's just that. That's a big culture change, you could make pure review. Transparent. Example, you could have the review part of the record of the paper. That's really embarrassing. It's scary for most scientists to think of a world that's the norm. So there's a lot of resistance, certainly, if it's on to open up that whole he reviewed prices, and in fact, even Kratz souls, that's one way forward. Another would be you have some kind of global auditing system where you know, someone like me doing a sting operation like I did is just continuously rolling along to find out. If you're keeping your word of doing period view, that's expensive and. Unlikely to happen because everyone has to agree. To do it. Well, in some sense some base opposed to he that it's not happening at all. And that anyone pretty much anyone could establish a scientific journal poodle online. Mike it look legit and start making money, and I could make journal right now, I can do fifteen minutes. What were dress side and attach Bank out to? I mean, what do you reckon? Well on these fancy name. Should we use trillion journal of Melbourne? San francisco. Melbourne Frisco journal of. Well, we can work on that.

The predatory publishers sucking science's blood Updated audio

"This is an ABC podcast Sir. Science Fiction Hey on the Tesha Mitchell. Welcome search this week. The pursuit of a Predator as a reporter. You you get all kinds of of little suggestions. Tips complaints yes. And you can't deal with them all. This one intrigued me. I had started to hear about similar complaints and sort of once. You hear enough of of them. The signal adds up. You think. Maybe there's a story here. What was I seeing? What what the clues that? That major smell a rash. I was a researcher myself. I was a faculty librarian at my university and I did a research probably starting five six years ago I I was always looking for publishing opportunities. I started getting letters and I started to receive these emails. Sort of saying extremely nice. Nice things to me that basically said call for Paper Journal Editors Wanting Me To submit my manuscript to their journal and they had lots of grammatical errors in addition to that one in the emails and then generally speaking editor. I don't say very nice things about you and they don't typically they don't write to you and ask you to submit a manuscript. Will you ever tempted to submit. No no I mean I'm a clinical epidemiology in some of these journals were literally from Soil Science Right. Why would somebody from soil science be asking me and saying Nice things about me? They wouldn't no me from anywhere he's smell. I did maybe several but that rash or several thousand rats via now well and truly on the loose predatory publishes and the predatory journals have become a mega industry global in reach ending ending destructive potential. In fact you're going to hear from someone who believes that this industry represents the biggest threat to science since the inquisition Shen the. US Federal Court recently ordered one of the biggest of these companies to pay up over fifty million US dollars. Only international headquartered voted in Hyderabad in India but also operating in the US claims to publish hundreds of scientific and medical journals. It was found to employ deceptive business practices essentially entrapping scientists to other publishing their journals or participate in conferences. So does the ruling site. bye-bye predatory publishes. Well let's see if Any of that money actually moves anywhere. It's not clear with a mix ex-group will cough up that fifty million dollars which is an estimate of how much the company made from customers over a six-year period or whether it will appeal. We sent a list list of questions to its representatives but yet to receive a reply but it is nice clear message to all the Sake Journal. Publishers of the world that they're being watched touched and there could be consequences. John Bohannon a science journalist and now director of science at an artificial intelligence startup in San Fran called primer. They didn't basically slipping under the radar and using American Canadian and European banks to move money millions of dollars of money from elicit gains. So this court ruling basically makes extremely inconvenient to do now. Joan was asked to present evidence in the case brought against the annex group by the US Federal Trade Commission because he'd had an unusually Hansa with the publisher so mix was one of hundreds of publishers offers. That I tested in sting operation. I wrote some computer code to generate thousands of very bad scientific papers. And what happened next these kind of legendary in science circles back in two thousand twelve John was reporting for the Journal. Science and the expression expression predatory journals wasn't in common news There was a guy named Jeffrey. You who was probably the only person around making a big stink about this and trying to actually Shine a light on it. It was very very bold effort. He had something called feels list or at least it became known as beal's list. My name is Jeffrey Bill. And I'm a retired academic librarian from the University of Colorado Denver professor. Beal beal's blacklist fame and a climb and Notaro He was the first to coin. The phrase predatory journals the Journal. Publishers hated being malysz because it stigmatizes them and meant that their income was decreased. Most of the predatory publishers are predatory not only in their publishing but in just the way they operate in general and they would use the heckler's actors veto. They would call the library director and complain about me and they would try to annoy people at my university as much as possible in order to manipulate those people at the university to make me stop the list so that their complaints would stop. I also received several threats of legal action including think it was in twenty twelve international threatened to sue me for one billion dollars one billion dollars. It was just a threat what I learned from it is that you can basically basically pay an attorney five hundred dollars in all right a threatening letter so they they did that but they never followed through with. It was never introduced in any court personal consequences consequences for Jeffrey of running. That black least were immense. And I'll come back to that. One estimate suggests that there are at least eight thousand predatory journals. This is just one publisher of many. But Jeffrey Bill provocatively calls it. The Evil Empire of Predatory Publishing I stand Dan by that statement and what they do is. They've really hurt a lot of people. You know the scholarly publishing system works on the honor system and people operate in good faith but oh mix international has has totally broken all that down. They use a lot of spamming to solicit article manuscripts from researchers they have journal titles that match the titles of respected journals. Usually one word off enough to confuse people that might be the respected journal in the `field they will at People's names to their editorial boards without the person's permission people from top universities top researchers in the field and they'll use their identity to promote the journal and when the person finds out about it and ask them to remove their name. They don't remove it they just leave it there because they're operating operating from foreign country. There's really nothing you can do about it and especially prey on young researchers in emerging researchers researchers who don't speak English as their first language it's not just scientists from developing countries that are targeted although that easing acknowledged problem clinical epidemiologist. David Mo- assays the crosses reaches into some of America's most delayed institutions including Harvard in an analysis that we did where we looked at a close to two thousand thousand articles published in Predator journals. We found that actually the most frequent corresponding authors were from what we would call first. World countries countries would lots of money and lots of resources that is troubling very very troubling because it suggests that at these institutions authors may not Be Aware of predatory journals and we need to obviously ramp up some educational activities. People think that they're sending the manuscript to a legitimate respected journal. When it's really just a phony dough mix international journal and then they quickly accept the paper without any peer review and then send them an invoice and at that point the authors realized that something is wrong because There was really no peer reviewed done yet. The papers accepted and they have this two thousand dollars invoice that comes through email and the olmecs demanding payment. Most of them asked to withdraw the paper when they realized that they've been duped. But then oh mix says has you can't withdraw your paper unless you pay US withdrawal fee. An often than olmecs will publish the article quickly and one of their journals and then and they can't submit it anywhere else. Because that would be duplicate submission it would be publishing the same article twice. which is something not supposed to do that? Nothing about predatory regionals. He's what he's supposed to happening science as John Bowen discovered when he sent them a taste. Yes yeah so I just wanted some data. It's frustrating to have such an enticing story of you know bad actors that Potentially Ricky and millions of ill gotten dollars dollars and not get some data to find out if it's true so we appear stay in molecular biology from Oxford oppy slave. He plotted an experiment which was pretty straightforward. And the idea in a nutshell is if I submit a really and I mean truly bad scientific paper to your journal title and you accept it with no sign of any peer review and you ask me for money then you're you're a fake journal publisher. Yeah John Wanted to test how easy it was to get published in a predatory journal it can usually take many months years even to get a pipe into a reputable scientific journal. And even then it's not a given. That's partly because of what's called Peer Review essential to the scientific process. So you do an experiment. You brought it up reporting your results. Submitted to a journal and then it gets pulled to shreds by a bunch of other scientists and so it should. That's it's peer review. It's designed to Cape Science rigorous experiments well-designed the results real usable and reproducible. Many predatory regionals site. They conduct peer review. That in fact most of them don't do appear review they go through the motions of period view. They might have like a stock appear of you that they use for every paper that's submitted and basically the papers are accepted in just published almost immediately as soon as the invoices paid and so pure review view is it's it's a fundamental component of how honest journals carry out their business of looking at manuscripts and seeing seeing whether they're fatally flawed or whether they can be improved and whether they're acceptable for publication dive. Moa Is Director of the Center for Gen in a Lola at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute at the University of Ottawa. Hey and colleagues. Just hosted a global summit on predatory journals because they what a building consensus Ivo what they are and how to shut them down. So is these sorts of behaviors and many other behaviors that are not trustworthy. Jiffy deal when something is published in a scholarly journal that doesn't represent validated science. Then then it pollutes the whole scientific record and can't build on junk science or if you do the future science isn't real science either On science fiction. ABC Iran with Natasha. Mitchell we're looking at predatory publishes and the threat. They pose to science scholarship in truth so back to science journalist John by Hannah. And he's sting operation own predatory journals. mm-hmm you wrote a fake paper. In fact you you actually wrote a computer program to write hundreds of spoof papers yeah actually. It spat out thousands. I ended up only needing hundreds. He's computer program changed the authors affiliations specific chemicals cancer cells and other ingredients have. He's experiment but the funding was pretty much the same and this study was potentially. We'll changing. Yes it was a thrill cure cancer at this John. I was basically claiming that this chemical that I found in this little lichens little plant. Plant like creature was able to kill cancer cells in solution. So you know in principle could inject stuff into your blood like you doing chemotherapy be and it would hopefully kill off the cancer cells and I had these very impressive charts showing the results very impressive. Yeah at face value. The Piper hype is sanded convincing but they will all seed in with glaring eras and this would take literally one minute just one glance really of any reasonable double science who was doing peer review of this paper. You just look at the numbers represented this charts and they just make no sense at all. Just don't make any sense. And the design of his experiment experiment that was fatally flawed too. I mean these are the kind of mistakes that highschool stupid mic like these. This isn't even college level. Mistakes this is just like the biggest most most embarrassing scientific mistake imagine. This isn't subtle stuff and then John Wind even further. I just wanted to like bring it to the next level so at the ended the paper. I have the authors say that you know the next thing we're going to do is test this in humans which to any reviewer should be the biggest red flag I mean aside from the fact that science it looks like completely junk. That's just completely unethical. Then he targeted generals suspected to be predatory including two run by ex scrape one cold medicinal chemistry another biology amid a season of eight months. He submitted ten pipers awake. And what happened. Next is incredible incredible. Any reasonable publisher should have looked at that. Paper said not in no way on that publishing this a lot of journals. Dd Saturday status. Give us give us the very murray doc stats well. The darkest of dark stats is that sixty percent of the publishers accepted my article. So did any any of those sixty percent ask you to make any kind of amendments almost never when they did it it involved formatting trivial changes often they would it asked me to add citations two papers that they'd published which is also really not a good practice but now they almost never did any substantial review an even in the few exceptions that DDP to conduct some kind of Scientific Peer Review Jones paper was often accepted anyway. I even after a damning review. What's more to mainstream totten's of Science Publishing Elsevier and sage court out not much to their embarrassment? Yeah it was grim. That was not a great day for Scientific Publishing and so over. The course of that experiment took months to finish. I just sort of got more and more pessimistic about the publishing world. It really changed my view of the whole industry that I was part of some people who a had been caught up in this thing did contact me afterwards. In fact we got at least one angry letter to the editor from one of these journals that got caught with its pants down but I don't have that much sympathy for them because they had the one job. You know if you're the editor of a journal all you gotTa do is withhold the integrity of the journal and clearly weren't doing that some editors of the more reputable journals I think expressed a sense of betrayal of trust and I wonder what you'll response constant. Oh Yeah Yeah. Absolutely everyone craft all over the whole thing. How else would they have reacted? It was basically like taking the giant dump on their entire world. A couple of editors lost their jobs but considering that they had jobs that a fake journal. I I don't see that it's such a big loss. So he's a handful of us now. In the industry the Predatory publishing industry has not gone away has not left silence infect all indications that it has grown massively strong if you carried out the sting operation again. What do you think might happen? Oh I think the picture would probably be worse if I were to do it again though. I'll tell you what I would do. Is I would send a sample papers to the the publishers who have the more traditional model as well It kind of amazed me that this whole problem that I uncovered was dismissed by many for the simple fact that I hadn't also submitted fake papers to different kinds of journals at so they felt like they were being unfairly picked mcdon- so so did some people in the open access publishing movement and it's a passionate movement. Did they think that you had unfairly. Targeted them in particular. Oh yeah absolutely. They dragged through the mud. It was really unpleasant cleaning shells for the traditional scientific publishing world which is hilarious. If if you've known me at all it's really quite the opposite. I'm quite an advocate for open access everything but whatever it's fine science journalist John Vo Hanan the confusion between the open access publishing movement and predatory journals is perhaps for another edition of the show. It's controversial you say. Both charge authors to publish their pipers. Instead of slugging raiders all subscribe as with phase so the open access argument for that is that opens up scientific knowledge. Like never before I phrase it up from behind traditional gentle pie walls but some believe these author pies model creates inherent conflict of interest and that predatory traded treat publishes of taking advantage of that in order to build prophets and taking advantage of scientists to who had desperate to get published in the publish. This you'll perish culture of science. Some of them are taking up the offer because they're being tricked by the predatory publishers. And that's why I use the term predatory because they're preying on them. They're they're preying on their weaknesses that people need to get published so people are earning degrees. People are getting promotions at universities. People people earning tenure in some cases based on a publications in low quality fake predatory journals that don't conduct any peer review and have have almost no settling at all they accept everything and we've also learned that Pharmaceutical companies are publishing their research to justify the the efficacy of their new medicines are using predatory journals to do that as well. What do you think the key drivers of the predatory journal Sane has been? It's easy easy money. As Jeffrey bills blacklist of predatory journals grew in influence as did. His reputation publishes publishes and others pushed back angrily at him at his criteria for inclusion on the least at his lone ranger approach at his singular antagonism some of open access publishing some went straight to his universities ladyship to attack his credibility and he became a kind of hybrid of hero in. I'm Tara how did his university respond for the most part for the first few years they were supportive of me and the legal office did help me. It is some tricky situations you know that I had gotten in because of the threats from the publishers but towards the end I think they grew weary of me a and the support decreased. Did you ever receive pressure to shutdown. You'll blog from your university. I received a pressure but it wasn't pressure to shut shut down the blog. Things became increasingly uncomfortable towards the end before I retired I retired a year ago. Did it become uncomfortable. The university he did that some things I used to have an office and they took me out of an office and put me into a cubicle. They hired a new person to work in the library. He had two years of library experience and they made him be my supervisor. And you know part of Predatory publishing there's a broader context to it. There's a social movement behind open access publishing. A lot of people want to kill off the traditional publishers and had them all replaced with open access journals so that everybody throughout the world connects us all published research and it's a very Left wing social movement. And so the person that came in as my supervisor was among among those people and so we had strikingly kingly different ideologies about scholarly publishing so. That was way that they were pressured. Me Why did you shut down bills least in in. I think it was two thousand seventeen. Taint it has reincarnated with anonymous editors in some sense to protect themselves from what you went through. But why did you decide to shut it down. Well in January worry of that year I learned that the university was working with one of the publishers on my list and the results of that was that the university initiated a research. I misconduct investigation against me and I knew I hadn't engaged any research. Misconduct myself because research misconduct means means of falsification fabrication or plagiarism. By definition and I knew I hadn't done any of that yet they started this case against me and I felt very stigmatized pies by it and that kind of sealed it for me with the university I take another action against me and now here was something major. A research misconduct case. And that's why I decided to stop the list. What was the outcome of that case the outcome in July of twenty seventeen was snow? Research misconduct found that. Make you feel it made me feel horrible. I felt like my own university that I worked at for seventeen years. I was turning against me and I felt stigmatized and I felt like I really can continue the work. And that's why I shut down the blog and the lists you. I think that was a trigger for that action. Sure it was the publisher that they worked with was a big one and the predatory Tori publishers. The ones that are doing really well are rich. They have lots and lots of money. They can hire lawyers to go after people and they can organiz well. And there are several very large very successful predatory publishers out there and and they have a lot of power and they. We'll go after anybody who threatens their income was that publisher the publisher was frontiers. So you'd assist them to be a predatory publisher and yeah and I had lots of evidence from stuff that they had published. They published an article about Chem trails in the Sky Cam conspiracy theory yeah. They published an article about that which they quickly retracted. After I wrote a blog post about it. They they published an article saying that. HIV doesn't cause AIDS. So I had lots of lots of solid evidence that they weren't really conducting Valla Peer Review. I mean that's bad science. It's not necessarily making them and predatory publisher plenty of crap lanes in good journals But it gets gets retracted and publishing junk. Science is one of the criteria that I use to evaluate publishers. I mean you're if you submit at an article to a publisher thinking it's good publisher when they're publishing crap science poor science that is a type of predation against honest researchers. They don't want to be associated shared with junk science a spokesperson for the University of Colorado Denver. Where Jeffrey held a tenured faculty position would not comment on any research misconduct misconduct investigation but tolls friction that the university quote defended and supported Professor Bills Academic Freedom to pursue predatory publishing as part of? He's scholarship junk. hunk is the science in predatory journals. You and colleagues have have conducted a study to analyze the quality of the research that the studies that Mike it into that are accepted by predatory journals. What's striking observations? Did you make the Quick Tanko. Messages at the quality of reporting of these articles is really horrendously bad epidemiologist David Moa at the University of Ottawa. And when we compare that to do what we might consider is the legitimate literature it. It's very very much worse. And that's not to say that there aren't problems in the quality of reporting sorting of Legitimate Journal. There are but when we moved to predatory journals it suggests that there's the the screening that's going on so for example. We consider peer review in a sense of screen of the integrity. And the scientific composer of the research is perhaps not going on many of these papers. These are funded by Reputable agencies and so in a country like Canada where much research is paid out of You taxpayer dollars. It's really very very wasteful. It scientifically very problematic won't be seeing won't be cited and of course it's a waste of money any and it. It may also contribute to sort of adding layers of fakeness to what people are trying to get at is the truth because they don't conduct a proper period view and their publishing bogus science. If you have an agenda A nonscientific agenda agenda pseudoscientific agenda. You can use predatory publishers to publish your work. You know two of the biggest open questions in in science are what what is the nature of dark matter and what is the nature of dark energy this is from cosmology. And there's no scientific consensus as to the answers to those two questions in their big big questions in cosmology and physics. The biggest questions of all I think so but those questions have been answered. Many times in predatory journals are knows. There's lots of people writing articles claiming that they've discovered the answers to those questions in the predatory. Publishers are happy to accept them as long as the authors pay the fee and and they're published. There's some out there that would happily publish your paper saying that. Vaccines Cause Autism or that. There's no global warming occurring or that nuclear power is is going to destroy everybody. A bread causes cancer. Anything you want to write you can ride it and they'll publish as long as you. Pay The fee David. Mo- assays that like fake news scientists and citizens and clinicians and now struggling to distinguish fact from fiction in predatory publications and he wants a global observatory. Set Up to scrutinize they practices the problem. Is that many of these predatory predatory journals they are now making their way into Trusted sources over example for many researchers clinicians enjoy patients. They may look a pubmed put out by the National Library of medicine. The United States and big data rice of scientific pipers a huge database. And and what we see is that they're getting infiltrated. With articles from predatory journals they are funded by esteemed institutions funding institutions such as the National Institutes of health. And what is the patient to do. What's a clinician to do? Will these people make decisions based on on on that sort of evidence and I think that that's an incredibly problematic. Geoffrey beale believes makes international will survive despite the recent US federal fifty million dollar court ruling against them but we'll save science from they sorts of publishers of predatory journals. I don't see the problem going away. In fact. In some a lot of countries the open access advocates have been successful flagging governments. To pass laws requiring federally funded work to be published in open access journals. So they're there. When the predatory publishers here about these laws they are ecstatic about them because it helps them because a certain percentage of the people are going to be publishing in in the predatory journals whether by mistake or or intentionally in they will be the market the market is there and it's encoded in law now increasingly so they had a we stop the open access movement? which many says a positive thing you don't From being infiltrated by predatory publishes. I don't know a way to stop them. Publishers have freedom of the press. And there's really no laws. They're not breaking any laws in most cases unless they engage in and identity theft or other things like that but for the most part they're they're completely sanctioned by by governments because of freedom of the press. Uh John Behan. I think we're GONNA have to reinvent how we do things this old fashioned way of submitting a paper and having some mysterious peer review ooh that no one ever sees happened behind a curtain and results in yesterday. No I think we may have to really put some effort into alternative models and they do exist. I it's just that that's a big culture change. You could make pure review transparent for example you can have the review part of the record of the paper. Let's really embarrassing harassing. It's scary for most scientists to think of a worldwide. That's the norm. So there's a lot of resistance there are certainly if it's on the to open up that whole peer review prices Isis and in fact even crowd source at. Yeah that's one way forward another would be you have some kind of Global Auditing System. Where you know someone like me me doing a sting operation like I did is just continuously rolling along to find out if you're keeping your word of doing period view that's expensive and unlikely likely to happen because everyone has to agree to do it well in some sense? Some might be surprised to hear that it's not happening at all and that anyone everyone pretty much anyone could establish a scientific journal put it online make it look legit and start making money. Oh Yeah you and I could make a journal right now. I can and fifteen minutes to wordpress site and attach a bank count to it. I mean what he reckon these a fancy name. What should we used?

The predatory publishers sucking science's blood (Summer Season)

"ABC podcasts Scott. Chinn hey on the Tesha Mitchell. Welcome nick the quake the doot of a Predator as a reporter. You get all kinds of of little suggestions. Tips complaints this. And you can't deal with them all. This one intrigued me. I had started to hear about similar complaints and sort of once. You hear enough of them the signal adds up you think. Maybe there's a story here. What was I seeing What what the clued that? That Mela rash well. I was a researcher myself. I was a faculty librarian at my university and I did. Research probably starting five six years ago I I was always looking for publishing opportunities. I started getting letters and I started to receive these emails. Sort of saying extremely nice. Nice things to me that basically said call for Paper Journal Editors Wanting Me To submit my manuscript to their journal and they had lots of grammatical errors in addition to that one and the emails and then generally speaking editor. I don't say very nice things about you and they don't typically they don't write to you and ask you to submit a manuscript. Will you ever tempted to meet. No no I mean I'm a clinical epidemiologist in some of these journals were lifted from soil. Science right why would somebody from soil science be asking me saying Nice things about me. They wouldn't no me from anywhere he's smells a rat. I did maybe several but that rash or several thousand read via now. Well and truly on the loose predatory publishes and the Predatory Journal has become a mega industry global in reach ending ending destructive potential. In fact you're going to hear from someone who believes that the industry represents the big threat to don in the inquisition shen the US. Federal Court recently ordered one of the biggest of the company to pay up over fifty million. US dollars only make. International headquartered voted in Hyderabad in India but also operating in the US climbed the publish hundreds of medical journals found to employ deceptive business practices essentially entrapping fantasy to offer published in the Journal or participate in conferences. The Doug the ruling bye-bye predatory publishes well. Let's see if Any of that money actually moves anywhere. It's not clear with a the group will cough up that fifty million dollars which is an estimate of how much the company made from customers over a period. All whether we'll appeal we tend to leave leaked of question to its representative yet to receive a reply but it is nice. Clear message to all the Sake Journal. Publishers of the world that they're being watched watched and there could be consequences. Joan Bohannon thought journalists and now director to add an artificial intelligence data in San Fran called primer. They didn't biscuit slipping under the radar. And using American Canadian European banks to move money millions of dollars of money from a complicit gains so this court ruling basically makes that extremely inconvenient to do now. John was to present evidence in the kite board again. Anthem IQ Group by the Federal Trade Commission. Because he'd had an unusually Hansa with the publisher so all mix was one of hundreds of publishers offers that I tested in sting operation. I wrote some computer code to generate thousands of very bad scientific papers. They have been negative kind of legendary inside the back in two thousand twelve John Reporting for the general died and the Expression Predatory Journal Common News. there was a guy named Geoffrey Yu who was probably the only person around making in a big public. Stink about this and trying to actually Shine a light on it. It was very very bold effort. He had something called feels list or at least it became known as beal's lest my name is Jeffrey Bill. And I'm a retired academic librarian from University of Colorado Denver. But make the deal. Beal Blackley fame and a climb and karate he was the first to coin. The Phrase Predatory Journal the Journal. Publishers hated being malysz because it it stigmatizes them in meant that their income was decreased. Most of the predatory publishers are predatory not only in their publishing but in just the way they operate in general and they would use the heckler's actors veto. They would call the library director and complain about me and they would try to annoy people at my university as much as possible in order to manipulate those people at the university to make me stop the list so that their complaints would stop. I also received several threats of legal action including think it was is in twenty twelve international threatened to sue me for one billion dollars one billion dollars. It was just a threat. What I learned from it is that you can basically basically pay an attorney? Five hundred dollars all right a threatening letter so they they did that but they never followed through with. It was never introduced in any court consequences consequences. Jeffrey of running that black leaked were immense. And I'll come back to that. One estimate suggests that there are at least eight thousand predatory journals it is just one publisher of many but Jeffrey Bill provocatively cold. The the evil empire of Predatory Publishing I stand Dan by that statement and what they do is they really hurt a lot of people. You know the scholarly publishing system works on the honor system and people operate in good faith but oh mix international has has totally broken all that down. They use a lot of spamming to solicit article manuscripts from researchers they have journal titles that match the titles of respected journals. Usually one word off enough to confuse people that it might be the respected journal in the `field they will at People's names to their editorial boards without the person's permission people from top universities top researchers in the field and they'll use their identity to promote the journal and when the person finds out about it and ask them to remove their name. They don't remove it they just leave it there because they're operating operating from foreign country. There's really nothing you can do about it. And they especially prey on young researchers in emerging researchers researchers who don't speak English as their first language. It's not just dont. As from developing countries that a toggle though that even acknowledged problem clinical epidemiologist. David moas taste the Croats at reaching into some of America's most delayed institutions including Harvard in the analysis that we did where we looked at a close to two thousand thousand articles published in Predator journals. We found that actually the most frequent corresponding authors were from what we would call first world countries countries with lots of money and lots of resources that is troubling very troubling because it suggests that at these institutions authors may not Be Aware of predatory journals and are we need to obviously ramp up some educational activities. People think that they're sending the manuscript to a legitimate respected journal. When it's really just a phony dough mix international journal and then they quickly accept the paper without any peer review and then send them an invoice and that point the authors realized that something is wrong because There was really no peer reviewed done yet papers accepted and they have this two thousand dollars invoice that comes through email and the olmecs demanding payment. Most of them asked to withdraw the paper when they realized that they've been duped. But then omits says says you can't withdraw your paper unless you pay US withdrawal fee. An often than olmecs will publish the article quickly and one of their journals and then and they can't submit it anywhere else. Because that would be duplicate submission it would be publishing the same article twice. which is something not supposed to do that? Nothing about Predatory Street Journal devoted to pose to happening time as John Bohannon Govett when he hit them. Attest yes yeah so I just wanted some data. It's frustrating to have such an enticing story of you know bad actors that potentially raking in millions of ill-gotten dollars dollars and not get some data to find out if it's true. We stay in molecular biology from offered. Clave he plotted experiment which was pretty straightforward. And the idea in a nutshell is if I submit a really and I mean truly bad scientific paper to your journal final and you accept it with no sign of any peer review and you asked me for money then you're you're a fake journal Publisher Sharma sure. Yeah John Wanted to take to how easy it was to get published in a predatory journal it can usually take many months used even to get a pipe into a reputable contact general and even then it's not a given that partly because of what's called Peer Review essential to the conduct protest. You Do Fairmont you. You brought it up reporting your results. Submit it to a journal and then it pulled destroyed by a bunch of other daunting and though it should that Pity Review It's designed to Cape on rigorous behrman twelve and the results real usable Andrey projectable many predatory regional diet. I Conduct Peer Review Body Fat. Most of them don't do appear review. They go through the motions of Peer Review. They might have like a stock doc period. You that they use for every paper that's submitted and basically the papers are accepted in just published almost immediately as soon as the invoices paid and so pure review view is it's it's a fundamental component of how honest journals carry out their business of looking at manuscripts and seeing seeing whether they're fatally flawed or whether they can be improved and whether they're acceptable for publication dive Moa Director of the dentists agenda in a Lola at the Ottawa Hospital the institute at the University of Ottawa. Hey and colleagues just hosted a global summit on predatory journals because they what a bill to content as Ivo what they are and how to shut them down so is these sorts of behaviors and many other behaviors. That are not trustworthy. gately deal when something is published in a scholarly journal that doesn't represent validated science. Then then it pollutes the whole scientific record and can't build on junk science or if you do the future science isn't real science either you don three. IB Theory and with main attaches Mitchell. We're looking at predatory publishes and the threat. They poke dawn. Goal is sheep in truth so back took don gentlest John by Hannah. And he's Sting Operation Own Predatory Journal mm-hmm. You wrote a psych paper in fact you you actually wrote a computer program to write hundreds of pipers. Yeah actually it spat out thousands. I ended up only needing hundreds. He's computer program changed the authors affiliations chemicals Chantelle and other ingredients fairmont but funding was pretty much time and the world potentially will changing. Yeah it was a thrill Cuba Canada. John I was basically claiming that this chemical that I found in this little lichens little plant plant like creature was able to kill cancer. Cells in solution. So you know in principle you could inject this stuff into your blood like you. Doing chemotherapy be and it would hopefully kill off the cancer cells and I had these very impressed with charts showing the results very impressive. Yeah it fights value the pipe hypoc standard convicting but they will all dated with glaring eras. And this would take literally one minute just one glance really of any reasonable title science. Who was doing peer review of this paper you just look at the numbers representing this charts and they just make no sense at all? Just don't make any sense and the design if the experiment that was fatally flawed too. I mean these are the kind of mistakes that high school stupid make like these. This isn't even college mistakes. This is just like the biggest most most embarrassing scientific mistake imagine. This isn't subtle stuff and then John Wind even I just wanted to like bring it to the next level so at the into the paper I have the authors say that you know. The next thing we're going to do is test. This humans which to any reviewer should be the biggest red flag I mean aside from the fact the science it looks like completely junk. That's just completely unethical. Then he targeted general predatory including two run by tape one cold medicinal chemistry another biology amid the eight-month he admitted ten pipers awake and what happened. Next is incredible incredible. Any reasonable publisher should have looked at that paper and said not in no way on that publishing this a lot of journals. Dd Yes it gives us the very murray doc stats well. The darkest of dark stats is that sixty percent of the publishers accepted. My article did any any of those sixty percent off to you to make any kind of amendments almost never when they did it it involved. Formatting trivial changes often they would asked me to add citations two papers that they'd published which is also really not a good practice but now they almost never did any substantial reviews and even in the Buick that DDP to conduct some kind of Conduct Peer Review John Piper with open accepted. Anyway I even after a damning review. What more to mainstream todd and the publishing L. V. and Daij court out not much to their embarrassment? Yeah it was grim. That was not a great day for Scientific Publishing and so over. The course of that experiment took months to finish. I just sort of got more and more pessimistic about the publishing world. It really changed my view of the whole industry that I was part of some people who a had been caught up in the sting did contact me afterwards effect. We got at least one angry letter to the editor from one of these journals. Yeah that got caught with its pants down but I don't have that much sympathy for them because they had the one job. You know if you're the editor of journal all you gotTa do is withhold the integrity of the journal and clearly weren't doing that as of the more reputable journals a betrayal of trust and. I wonder what you'll respond CANETTI's Oh yeah. Yeah absolutely everyone craft all over the whole thing. How else would they have reacted? It was basically like taking the giant dump on their entire world. A couple of editors lost their jobs but considering that they had jobs that a fake journal. I I don't see that it's such the big loss so it either a handful of us now. In the industry the Predatory publishing industry has not gone away has not left. Scott team fact all indications that it has grown Mac. Delay going strong. If you carried out the sting operation again. What do you think? Oh I think the picture would probably be worse if I were to do it again. Though I'll tell you what I would do is I would Send a sample papers to the the publishers. Who have the more traditional model as well it? It's kind of amazed me that this whole problem that I uncovered was dismissed by many for the simple fact that I hadn't also submitted fake papers to different kinds of journals at so they felt like they were being unfairly picked picked on the people in the Nexus Publishing Movement and Compassionate Movement. Did they think that you had unfairly. Targeted them in particular. Oh yeah absolutely they drag me through the mud. It was really unpleasant claiming that I'm Michelle's for the traditional scientific publishing world which is hilarious if if you've known me at all it's really quite the opposite. I'm quite an advocate for open access everything but whatever it's fine God's gentlest John Bohannon the confusion between the open active publishing movement and predatory journals eased perhaps for another edition of the show it controversial you both charge authors to publish their pipers. Instead of plugging raiders subscribe with phase. So the open access document for that. Is that opened up on knowledge like never before afraid that up from behind traditional general pie walls but come believe the orthopedic model creates an inherent conflict of interest and that prey traded tree publishes of taking advantage of that in order to build prophet and the taking advantage of gone to who are desperate to get published in the publish. This you'll perish culture at dying. Some of them are taking up the offer because they're being tricked by the predatory publishers. And that's why I use the term predatory because they're preying on them. They're they're preying on their weaknesses that people need to get published so people are earning degrees. People are getting promotions at universities. People people are earning tenure. In some cases based on a publications in low quality fake predatory journals that don't conduct any peer review and have almost no settling at all they accept everything and we've also learned that Pharmaceutical companies are publishing their research to justify the the efficacy of their new medicines are using predatory journals to do that as well. What do you think the K.? Drive is of the predatory journal Sane has been. It's easy easy money. Jeffrey Built Blackley to all of predatory journals grew in influence as did his reputation. Publish publishes the now the push back angrily at him at criteria for inclusion on the lease at Lone ranger approach at he denora antagonism them of open active publishing some went straight to he'd universities Ladyship to attack your credibility and he became a kind of hybrid of hero in. I'm Tara how did he university respond for the most part for the first few years they were supportive of me and the legal office did help me. Could I have some tricky situations you know that. I had gotten in because of the threats from the publishers but towards the end I think they grew weary of me A.. And the support decreased. Dav receive pressure to shut Daniel blog from your university. I received the pressure but it wasn't pressure to shut shut down the blog. Things became increasingly uncomfortable towards the end before I retired I retired a year ago. Did it become uncomfortable. The university he did that some things I used to have an office and they took me out of an office and put me into a cubicle. They hired a new person to work in the library. He had two years of library experience and they made him be my supervisor. And you know part of Predatory publishing there's a broader context to it. There's a social movement behind open access publishing. A lot of people want to kill off the traditional publishers and had them all replaced with open access journals so that everybody throughout the world connects us all published research and it's a very Left wing social movement. And so the person that came in as my supervisor was among among those people and so we had strikingly kingly different ideologies about scholarly publishing. So that was way a pressured. Me Why did you. Shutdown bills leaked in in two thousand seventeen taint it has reincarnated with anonymous editors income since to protect themselves from what you went through. But why did you decide to shut it down. Well in January array of that year. I learned that the university was working with one of the publishers on my list and the results of that was that the university initiated a research. I misconduct investigation against me and I knew I hadn't engaged any research. Misconduct myself because research misconduct means means of falsification fabrication or plagiarism. By definition and I knew I hadn't done any of that yet they started this case against me and I felt very stigmatized passed by it and that kind of sealed it for me with the university. I you know take another action against me and now here was something major research misconduct case. And that's why I decided to stop the list. What was the outcome of that case the outcome in July of twenty seventeen was snow? Research misconduct found at that. Make you feel it made me feel horrible. I felt like my own university that I worked at for seventeen years. I was turning against me and I felt stigmatized and I felt like I really can continue the work. And that's why I shut down the blog and the lists you you think that builds leaked with attributes of that action. Sure it was a publisher that they worked with was a big one and the predatory Tori publishers. The ones that are doing really well are rich. They have lots and lots of money. They can hire lawyers to go after people and they can organiz well. And there are several very large very successful predatory publishers out there and and they have a lot of power and they we'll go after anybody who threatens their income publisher the publisher was frontiers. So you just ask them to be predatory publisher. Yeah Yeah and I had lots of evidence from stuff that they had published. They published an article about Chem trails in the Sky Cam conspiracy theory yeah. They published an article about that which they quickly retracted. After I wrote a blog post about it. They they published an article saying that. HIV doesn't cause AIDS. So I had lots of lots of solid evidence that they weren't really conducting Valla Peer Review Diet. It's not necessarily making them a predatory publish plenty of crap lanes up in good journals But it gets gets retracted and publishing junk. Science is one of the criteria that I use to evaluate publishers if you submit in an article to a publisher thinking it's good publisher when they're publishing crap science poor science that is a type of predation against on researchers. They don't want to be associated shared with junk science. And for the University of Colorado Dame Vera. Where Jeffrey held a tenured faculty position would not comment on any research? Misconduct misconduct investigation but told not friction that the university quote defended and supported perfect to build academic freedom to do predatory publishing part of scholarship. Junk thank you seem predatory channel you in colleague have conducted a study to analyze the quality of the research that the studies that Mike hitting two that are directed by predatory journals. What talking observations did you make? The Quick Tanko messages at the quality of reporting of these articles is really horrendously. Bad Epidemiologist David Moa at the University of Ottawa. And when we compare that to do what we might consider. Is the legitimate literature it. It's very very much worse. And that's not to say that there aren't problems in the quality of reporting noting of Legitimate Journal with our our but when we moved to predatory journals it suggests that there's Do the screening. That's going on so. For example we consider peer review in a sense of screen of the integrity and the scientific composer of the research is perhaps not going on many of these papers. These are funded by Reputable agencies and so in a country like Canada were much research is paid out of You you know taxpayer dollars. It's really very very wasteful. It scientifically very problematic. It won't be seeing won't be cited and of course it's a waste of money any and it. It may also contribute to sort of adding layers of fakeness to what people are trying to. That is the truth because they don't conduct a proper peer review and their publishing bogus science. If you have an agenda A nonscientific agenda agenda pseudoscientific agenda. You can use predatory publishers to publish your work. You know two of the biggest open questions in in science are what what is the nature of dark matter and what is the nature of dark energy this is from cosmology. And there's no scientific consensus as to the answers to those two questions in their big big questions in cosmology and physics the biggest Clinton's of all I think so but those questions have been answered many times in predatory journals or knows there's lots of people writing articles claiming that they've discovered the answers to those questions in the predatory. Publishers are happy to accept them as long as the authors pay the fee and they're published. There's some out there that would happily publish your paper saying that. Vaccines Cause Autism or that. There's no global warming occurring or that Nuclear power is is going to destroy everybody. A bread causes cancer. Anything you want to write you can write it and they'll publish as long as you. Pay The fee David. Maui day that like fake news Danz and Peterson's and clinician and now struggling to distinguish fact from fiction in predatory publications and he wants a Global Observatory that up to scrutinize they practices the problem. Is that many of these predatory predatory journals they are now making their way into Trusted sources over example for many researchers clinicians wins patients. They may look a pubmed product brother National Library Medicine. The United States and big data of pipers a huge database. And and what we see is that they're getting infiltrated with articles from predatory journals that are funded by esteemed institutions funding institutions such as the National Institutes of health. And what is the patient to do. What's a clinician to do? Will these people make decisions based on on on that sort of evidence and I think that that's an incredibly problematic. Jeffrey beal believed mcteer. National will survive despite the recent you with federal fifty million dollar court ruling against them but will die. From NATO's of publishes of Predatory Janelle. I don't see the problem going away. In fact. In some a lot of countries the open access advocates have been successful. Salaam getting governments to pass laws requiring federally funded work to be published in open access journals. So they're they're in a when the predatory publishers here about these laws they are ecstatic about them because it helps them. Because certain percentage of the people are going to be publishing in in the predatory journals whether by mistake or or intentionally in they will be the market the market is there and it's encoded in law now increasingly so they had a we stop the open access movement. which many as a positive thing you don't from being infiltrated by predatory publishes? I don't know a way to stop them. Publishers have freedom of the press. And there's really no laws. They're not breaking any laws in most cases unless they engage in identity theft or other things like that but for the most part they're they're completely sanctioned by by governments because of freedom of the press. Uh John I think we're GONNA have to reinvent how we do things this old fashioned way of submitting a paper and having some mysterious peer review do that you know no one ever sees happened behind a curtain and results in yes or no I think we may have to really put some effort into alternative models and they do exist. I it's just that that's a big culture change. You could make transparent for example you could have the review part of the record of the paper and it's really embarrassing harassing. It's scary for most scientists to think of a world. That's the norm. So there's a lot of resistance. They're out Bentley. If it's on to open up that whole peer reviewed pride it can impact David Crowds. That's one way or another would be you have some kind of Global Auditing System. Where you know someone like me not doing a sting operation like I did just continuously rolling along to find out if you're keeping your word of doing period view? That's expensive and unlikely unlikely to happen because everyone has to agree to do it.

What are the things you need to prepare for tax time. Ideally you're just you have a bookkeeper and you have an account that takes care of this for you. But i know some of you are just getting started. You've not been doing this for very long. And chris will tell you exactly what to do to get everything order so you can have your taxes done. Even if that means that you're sitting down side some time to get this done this year but get this stuff out of the way quickly so you can focus on the things that are fun in your business which most likely finding new inventory and if this is not your area of expertise i would implore you to find somebody that just does this for you and takes care of it so that you can really focus your time and efforts on the things that bring money into your business rather than Pulling your hair out doing things that you're not good at least for me Taxes is not something that's in my skill set. I'd rather find somebody that does that for me and takes care of it and i can focus on the things that only can do. And so. that's what i've done in. You'll learn a lot from chris. If you need help with that he also offers a a free consultation where you chat with him and figure out what you need to do moving forward but before we jump into my interview with chris just wanted to share something with you. That's been on my heart and it's a scripture in a fijian's three twenty now a scripture. A lot of you may know by heart. I'm sure you've heard it before. But let me read it. And just tell you how. I'm applying it to this year. In my life and my business. And i love the amplified version the classical version of amplified because it just kinda amplifies amplifies the scriptures says now to him who by in consequence of the action of his power. That is at work within us is able to carry out his purpose in do super abundantly far over and above all that we dare ask or think infinitely beyond highest prayers desires thoughts hopes or dreams that part there the i love. I love this. Part of the says is able to carry out his purpose do super abundantly far over and above all that we dare ask or think infinitely beyond our highest prayers desires thoughts hopes or dreams. I don't know about you. But i have some big dreams big goals but man i know god is way bigger than any of those and so my prayer is that i fulfil Every single plan and purpose. That god has on my life. I know that i am in. I am the happiest when. I'm doing that when i'm fulfilling his plans and purposes when i'm in the middle of his will for my life and not straying from that but unbelieving for big things this year and so i am just encouraging you to dare to ask big. It's not gonna offend god. It's not gonna offend him. If you're asking for health for your family if you're asking for finances to meet your needs to meet the needs of others around you He is big I now a father. I have a almost four year old son. And so. I have a different perspective than i did before. I love to bless cowan. It's so fun especially we just had christmas. It was so fun to see his eyes light up with joy when he's open up all those toys ban if if that brings joy to me imagine how much god loves to bless with gifts and just to see us happy. I believe he wants to bless us live bleed. He wants to us to be a fulfilled. I believe he wants to use us to bless others around us and so I believe my business is in a great position to be able to help. People already have been doing this. And i'm believing for the opportunity to reach more people. I want to see more people be able to quit their jobs to be able to earn money online. So that it can Do what they need to do. Some of you have some awesome things on your heart. you I get emails all the time from people that are like in ministry and they want to be able to say no to the money in the ministry to be able to have an income on the side that pays for everything that they're doing and basically do the ministry for free that's on their heart and to be able to see people do that. That is so awesome to be able to see people who want to build a business to give more or heck even just to pay pay the bills so that they can have free time with their family man. Those stories never get tired for me when people are like you know ryan because of what has been taught in your communities. I'm able to spend more time with my family. When he was able to quit. My job was able to give more able to go on vacation. Those are the things that i love to see. And that's why. I do what i do and so i'm believing god for big things this year and i just encourage you to do the same. What is big i was. I went to a a conference a couple of weeks ago And the speaker said that the lord told her one time. Ask me for something that makes me look like god asked me for something that makes me look like god. I guarantee that no matter what you ask. He's bigger has bigger plans. Bigger purposes bigger ways to bless you than you could ever imagine and so ask big this year who cares if you shoot for the stars and only reached the moon. I mean go for something.

I'll let me know high can pray for you believe big with you this year. Here's my interview with chris. Chris welcome back to streams of income radio man for you all on with me. Thanks ryan glad to be back. See you're in the coffee shop again. I am it's It's my home away from home at my home away from home in home. Are listening to the podcast you. You don't see him. Of course the podcast are on youtube and you can watch them. March these interviews But for those of you listening He has a cool background in. It's it's a either a coffee shop or a kind of a bar in the out in the middle of west texas or something that looks. Actually the real place isn't it. It is a rural place. It's actually in college station. Texas okay so we are talking today with chris about the everybody's favorite topic in business not really taxes but it's an important topic and It's timeless his. We're in february now. People are thinking about taxes. And if you have a an llc i think your taxes are due march fifteenth. Is that right chris. Yeah that's when you wanna get that in there and so we are Chris is really busy right now but he took time out of his day. to To get this episode out with me so we can get you guys prepared for tax season so chris. What's our topic today in regard to taxes. Will i just wanted to briefly touch on tax. Prep you know what what you need to have prepared so that you can do your taxes or your cpa can do your taxes so Every business Should have three different items that you look for in review on a periodic basis in the know your numbers course it talks about why should review them every month but definitely for tax time to have a profit and loss that shows all your income and all your expenses for the previous year That's going to be very important Because help your tax preparer understand all the deductions that she could possibly get. And if you've been in business for any length of time you know to deductions is the name of the game. Because you don't want to be taxed on your full amount of income if you have a deduction that can help lower that unless we have time we can get in on the other. We went over some deductions so guys. I'll get that. I'll put a link in the show notes to our previous episode that we talked about some of these things that we don't have time to go through some of the duck deductions by rumor episode. We did talk about we. Chris named off a lot of different things that As a business owner you can get a deduction for and there and there's also personal deductions when you're doing taxes and then there's business expenses that are deductions so I mean basically your business can pay for what you want your business to pay for And then that way you don't have to take a personal deduction for unreimbursed business expenses if the business just flat out pays for it. And i'm talking like electricity and talking internet. Phone that type of thing so if you're if you have your business pay for that one hundred percent You know every business in the world has some sort of shared use policy within the business and they'll they'll just pay for your phone plan for example and then they understand that part of it will be used for personal so anyway so run everything you can through your business like you need a new desk. Don't bite out of your pocket heavier business by if you Need new equipment a new computer. Whatever have your business by zone. That's a privilege of business ownership I know i don't know how many people listen to dave ramsey but He said on multiple occasions heat doesn't own anything his business so I mean he's a really smart guy and finance. I learned a lot from them so if he does it. It's gonna work for you too so that he doesn't own anything his business owns it. That's right interesting so I wish i had the episode number. So i could give it to you. But that's what he said in one of those episodes can find that the other one is The next one anyway is your balance sheet. So your balance sheet shows the values of all of your Bank accounts and all of your credit cards The amount of inventory that you have any any business assets would be listed It also shows how much equity you have in the company which which is a great thing to have But that measures the overall health of your business and you wanna see your balance sheet getting positive higher and higher every single month. You wanna see your business growth. And that's the report that you do that you rented to do that And then the balance sheet is important to have because there are several things on that balance sheet the directly go into your taxes Like the balance sheet is the place where you're cord. How much inventory. You have on hand So you can actually do a mathematical formula between the balance sheet at the end of one year here in the end of the next to determine how much inventory you sold throughout the year so And then the last thing you want at the to have handy as a inventory evaluation report so the inventory valuation report Let's just say you're working in a in a warehouse like sam's or bj's or costco A periodic they're required to a hundred percent inventory on all the products and they're building An inventory evaluation report for you as an ecommerce seller you go out and you look in your Inventory management system. You you walk around your house you walk around your own warehouse depending on how big you are and you added together the value of everything. That's still sitting there that the businesses bought to sell but hasn't sold yet that the value the retail value of what you would be able to sell it for. No you're looking at the cost that you paid. That's a good question. So if you bought it for three ninety nine then you write down three ninety nine. You don't write down fourteen ninety nine that you're planning to sell it at. This is the co author that you paid. Okay so question. Tool like inventory loud makes very easy and there's other tools out there actually the legendary seller tool they have a tool like it does the same type of thing to have those as your and putting those things into your system when you buy those things. Create your shipments. It kind of conduct be done automatically pull report. The hard part is now So many people are selling on multiple marketplaces So if you're just using inventory lab and say you're selling on four marketplace's your records an inventory lab may not be complete So if you're not using a multichannel software Then you're gonna have a bunch of accelerators hopefully at least that Or some other method of keeping track inventory lab does have a unlisted inventory feature for Pretty new and a lot of people are going through there and starting to use that to keep track of all the stuff they have on their ebay inventory. List for example. Yes but if you're doing something like walmart or jeter new egg or any of those other marketplaces. You're really gonna want some software. They can kind of tie it all together. There's several options out there. Okay what a what a couple of. Come to mind real quick because people who asked me. Yeah so celebrate is one of them. That's kind of like the stepping stone into the multichannel arena and there's pros and cons every software system. I'm not gonna get into that right now. a little A little more mature wearing like a step up from that would be something like listing here. that one's really good and then again if if you're just doing amazon but you're selling in multiple marketplaces again inventory. Lab would not be a a wonderful choice because inventory elaborate now only keeps track of us sales so you would wanna move into something kind of like scan power that does multiple marketplaces. And there's there's several others out there as well so you can actually find a lot of those if you log into your cellular central account and go to your apps menu and just look at inventory and it will give you a list of a lot of starting software and you can evaluate all of those if you want if you have the time. I don't have anybody that has the time. But if you had the time you could look at every one of them so anyway. That's those three things you need. So you need your profit and loss for all of two thousand twenty. You need your balance sheet as of december thirty first twenty twenty and you need your current inventory value as of december thirty first twenty twenty people get those things obviously Bookkeeper bookkeeper do those for you The that that'd be the best bet to have a bookkeeper. Do that for you. otherwise in the know your numbers course. We have some templates That is an accelerator. If you're if you're just at the beginning stages need to use excel and those roll up nicely into the categories on a profit and statement and balance sheet is literally just listing out. Okay i have twenty five hundred in this bank account. Have a dollar twenty five in this bank account. I have A target credit card with this value have art capital one card with this value. And and you can kind of symbol that together. You can just google balance sheets and profit and loss statements and you can get the format down and then it's just up to you to go in and plug in the numbers shirts. Okay alan. Would that take somebody like cruisers people out there like You know last year. It's mike i of selling um a little bit of money. That's awesome but i've never dealt with business taxes before anything like this We'll have a link in the show notes for the new year number scores In so you can get that and get these templates that we're talking about but how long what kind of. How long would it normally take somebody to pull things together for their accountant It varies depending on the state of your business. So for instance if you're selling on one channel you did twenty thousand dollars sales all of last year and you only had one account that she used only for business. Then you can. You could probably knock that out in three or four days when you break it all down but anything short of that all i can say is it varies depending on the size of your operations in the state of your financial accounts host I did want to go into a little bit about the difference between inventory purchased in cost of goods sold. There's aren't the same thing. Those are not the same thing. Unfortunately i used to think they were. It's so easy to think That while this is what. I paid for this ad these all up. And that's the that's my cost of goods for my. You know that that line of taxes. I do have a story There's a we. We're hoping they were doing this for the very first year. And and they're bookkeeper goes well. How much was your cost of goods sold. And they're like well. I spent thirty eight thousand dollars of inventory. So there you go. And they're like no no no. How much did you sell. And they're like well. I have thirty eight thousand dollars worth of purchases. That's my number. And and they're like no no. It's not so the cost of goods sold is only the what you paid for items that actually sold so if you spent thirty eight thousand dollars and your cost of goods was thirty. Eight thousand dollars that she won a report that means you would have zero inventory left. You would have sold everything you bought and We all know that's not really very doesn't mean that doesn't happen usually. That's right there. You always have like. Is that why you go to You know a car dealerships in the end of year clearance sale. They're trying to get rid of their inventory. They want they wanna get everything off the lot they. They don't want anything Staying past the new year For tax reasons but also to make room for the next set of cars are going to bring in so but but yeah definitely There several people that i've helped try to uncover their cost of goods and luckily a lot of them use inventory lab but that's not a requirement What we also do is pull your sales reports out of amazon. And they'll tell you every single product sold and All you would have to do is go back and figure out the cost that you paid for every single item throughout the year and this is i'm talking worst case scenario that you have no records this is what you'd want do So anyway There are some tricks that i've seen some people use like in in their skew. Their merchant skews they come up with Some of them put the purchase price in a certain location of those items So that if you were forced to do that you could use some excel formulas and actually extract the price for each sold item for you and then you could just add those all up so awesome. So that's that's that's one suggestion. I've seen And when you're doing fda the buyers they never see your merchants skew number so it's okay to have a little bit more detail in there but if you if you send it fulfilled by merchant They do see that skew number on your on your packing list. So be careful what you're gonna do for fulfilled by merchant and guys what he's talking about it might be. Let's say i buy an item at walmart we would always doing a lot of retail arbitrage. We'd say walmart underscore this. You could do hire one that makes sense to you. We do the store name. Underscore the price that we paid for it. So if it was five dollars would usually be zero five zero zero while we put on there. You could just do five. Five zero zero Anything like that and then Then we'd usually put underscore and then like the name of the item or something like that but you can do any that literally. That could be anything you want to be. But we always like to be able to go back really quickly and see. Oh well paid this. Because when we were doing repricing manually. It was nice. Look at 'em skew really quickly and no. I paid five dollars for that item. But so now he's saying if you need to go back and And you don't have a tool like inventory lab that were the cost of goods are inputted. When you a list. Your shipments you could do an excel file of all of your items that were sold and do a formula that would extract that zero five zero zero outta there. Put it in a different cell and be quickly animal up. You're not going through five dollars calculator next door. That's three nine in. That would be a nightmare. Are the other ones like Let me pull up my box. Receipts and let me go through the paper and then that date. I purchase that august seventeenth of last year. Not wrong receipt. And then yeah you adapt like old. Is that something. That's still in my inventory. Did i sell that. And she's now so we set up the right way to save you a whole bunch of headache so that i mean that alone to me. I know everybody's trying to reduce their overhead as much as possible. But there's just something you have to have Otherwise it's going to result in a lot of sleepless nights around text time trying to get everything together and guys. You don't have to like. I know some of you. Listen to this and you're just like man. I started my business last year two years ago. I don't feel like i'm gonna place. Reckon afford a bookkeeper or even expense of software. That's cool you something like excel and in the course You have a link in the show notes this episode seventy nine Chris has templates on their to for easy entry. If you're doing this mainly on your own in that will suffice. That'll get you what you need. And it's totally free. Takes a little bit of your time but we're not suggestion. Hey you need to go hire an accountant. Union higher bookkeeper any. Do all the stuff you can do account would be helpful for the actual taxes and But as far as getting all these records together you can do this yourself. But it's easier if you do it as you're going And even if you just like. Oh man i haven't kept any records at all You can still use the tools that we have in that course to get you all up to speed. And it's it's it's a lot better spending a little time each week then And making a little progress each each time getting to the end and having nothing so sure would you recommend people actually do their own taxes. Chris i know that's probably not the best because you might be missing out on a lot of things that you could be deducting because your account and we'll just know If there's a person's like i can't spend five hundred dollars for an accountant. But i gotta get my taxes done you know. Of course it's best. Use a cpa by far but is there a software or something that you would recommend. It's easy for people that just ans- ask them questions about their business and they can answer them and get you know do a decent job. Yeah i mean you can. You can always pick up software. I mean like turbo tax has information. Age are block has software all the all the big tax for filing places has some software that she could use But what i found with that software is. They don't really take the time to ask deeper questions about your business and really really help you identify All the deductions and everything that you can have less. They're not going to really help you. Unless you pay for the premium service which you might as well go by. I mean hire a cpa for But they're not going to really help with planning like hey you know when it gets down to november. Let's take a look where you are in the year. Let's look at how much money earned and let's see you know how we can reduce your tax burden the following year. Now now that you have six to eight weeks left in the year you know what. What big purchases can you make. At the end of the year to reduce your amount of reportable income But honestly Ever since i became a business owner i have had a cpa. Do it even if it felt tight when i was doing the first year and and it did feel tight. thing was filed. My personal they filed my business and they did such a good job. That i got more money back. Triple the amount from them. That i would have had done of myself paying it more than paid for itself and it does guys so i would say you know. Don't mess with this. Have somebody do it for you if you have a little bit of experience. That's fine but it's probably better the way way better to have somebody do it for its next brands. I'll get your money back that you'd never be able to true and one last little point on that is that your business would have this expense. You're not paying for tax. Prep out of your pocket right. So that business expense will help you lower your taxes. So that's just one one way to to help out lower. Your guys is when you're when you're a sole proprietor you're single member. Llc it sometimes feels like it's the one in the same was like well my businesses me so it feels like a punk spin and five hundred dollars for service. It feels like i'm doing it when So i i hear i can hear people background all it is me paying but you know it is helped. Lead you through your business. You get that deduction to do so again and you really have to get in the mindset. That i have a business you know i do. Time is money time time could you. How much more money could you create by being outsourcing than sitting at your dining room table figuring out the taxes when you can pay somebody to do that for you exactly so cool I think we went over. Cost of goods sold is talking about the bookkeeping. Several tangents several tangents later. Yeah so so. Yeah i just wanna get a little bit into into bookkeeping. So you're right ryan we talk about it in the but so when you're first starting out you have absolutely nothing You know i kind of call that stage stage one. You have to have something that she can run formulas with than add values quicker than by hand so you want to start off with some sort of excel files. Even if it's just a running general ledger of everything that you purchased. You can make it real simple today. Purchase this this price. Here's the unit price. Here's where i bought it. And yes. I did file that receipt. You know just something real simple and then Sorry about that and then once you get past that you're you're gonna wanna have a separate register for. You're not using inventory. Labs or something like that of Each of your individual items and say okay. Well i i have four items now in my inventory. Here's the purchase price. Here's the list of big price. And here's the date that i sent it in and then as you get more sophisticated you're like well. I want to track the weight. And i want to track the dimensions and i want to track my initial Offer price. And i want to track the price sold. And i wanna attract the roi and the and the gross margin per item so those are columns that grow over time so when you first off start you don't have to be overwhelmed by the number of columns so just do what makes sense for you but but then once you get to about fifty skews. Managing two hundred and fifty products assuming at five percents It starts to get a little time consuming. So then you want to reach out and you know get move onto stage to and find something that may not be true accounting system. But the could help you get closer to one so like inventory. Labs has a profit and loss section You can go in and record everything in there. it is a manual process which is a negative but there at least a process for you to type it all in yourself and then in mature lab would automate the handling of your inventory items so at least half of it. We fully automated in the other. Half is still kind of manual And then finally the last stages to bring on some accounting software that actually connects to your banks and your credit cards online or something quick books online so one the that we use for all of our customers and literally wall you're working it just pulls down the transactions and then when you're ready to do your books she opened it up and say okay. We'll here's all my purchases. And here's the mountain. That was for him in tori. That was for shipping supplies and that was for a subscription. And it's pretty much automated at that point. And then once you get more familiar with that software you can actually Set up some rules for repeating recurring transactions. That you know the same you know maybe say like i. I never source staples but only for supplies and automatically make it as sees staples purchase and it goes automatically the office supplies category definitely and then even if the rule fires you can go back and go. oh well. this was the one time. I did not by. You know shipping supplies. I bought stamps. So you know. I wanna go record that differently So so yeah you can always go back and change what the rule does for you but the rules means about immensely so the importance air is that use a system that you understand inside and out so if you don't understand accounting software is not good for you to use that accounting software by yourself if you don't understand the incident outs of inventory lab Get some help understanding inventory lab. They do have some tech support. That's pretty good between eight and five And bill though really take the time to make sure you understand and things and then again. If if if you're scared of using excel that's fine. Please take the time to learn it but you can even start off with the Old school mister. Scrooge paper journal if you want just handwrite everything knits. It's worked for decades so it could work for you too but you wouldn't be able to read my writings excels a way to go for me. But yeah i mean you you just have to understand. That's the most important thing in the same thing with inventory lab. There's a lot of people asking lots of questions about well. If is it a sellable or not. Settle when it's a return You know our my refunds calculated inventory lab. Says i had six sales but i only sent in four items. Why does a show. I have six sales. You know there are things in inventory live that you have to understand from a process perspective to make sure your numbers come out correctly. Inventory lab does a great job role in that up to four you in their profit and loss but but you still have to understand the process. So that's that's the number one thing get help. There's lots of to there's These these companies have tech support us their tech support If there's features in there you don't see that you need then put in a feature request and maybe other people have already had that too and Maybe your item could get slated for development who knows right and if you guys decide to jump into that we have mean ninety seven bucks There's actually facebook group associated with it increases in their answers questions and you can always book him for a fact. We do that people right now. I just need to talk chris Yeah and they so. On our on our website we have Www dot l. w. services dot com. And there's a a way through the website to book a consultation and Consultations usually free For the hour to see to learn about your business answer your questions But if you need me to Do some work and stuff like that. That would lead to something else later but the consultations are generally free. I'm in that facebook All the time Both in legends. And know your numbers and several other groups And then you could always Private message me through facebook messenger and stuff like that too. That's awesome so. And i do try to respond as quickly as possible but please understand right now. It is time. This is the busy time on top of also being an ecommerce seller at your own business. I do love about this guy is. He's a sullen on amazon. To he knows it. And that's another thing is he's a he does a great job and you can certainly go with him but if you already have an account we already have a bookkeeper It's nice to have somebody that understands ecommerce because that's kind of a different animal and so unless you don't have somebody yet go with somebody like chris who already. Who knows the ins and outs ecommerce business. Because another could do for you but they may have to learn some things before they could do your books correctly. That's true there's a there's a lot of fees and expenses that are unique to e commerce so I do want to say that. I am not a cpa but i am partnered with with a cpa firm. So i work really well With that firm it's e commerce accounting With cindy smith and we collaborate on a lot of projects together and I really trust her. Cpa work so love to talk. About reconciling so reconciling is a big word to those now used to hearing it but really when it comes down to it. It's it's called the match game. You know you you learn the match game when you're in elementary school even probably before you got to kindergarten because your parents are like what can i do. They can match big bird to big bird so So yeah reconciling just means matching so you wanna match all of your records from your bank statements. The physical pdf bank statements or I guess pdf electronic but the actual document to your accounting system. And you want to go line by line. You wanna have. That shows up on the bank. Statement is in your accounting system whether it's excel or inventory. Labs earthquakes. He needed to do this. If you use quickbooks online and are medically pulls everything you do because software software. So your bank could have a hiccup and not send all the transactions. Quickbooks could have a hiccup in import your transactions twice. Or if if you're in quickbooks doing some stuff you might accidentally do something and add a transaction. We didn't when he didn't mean to. So it's critical that if you have an accounting system that you're using to go line by line with your bank statement Versus your your whatever you're doing for your records. A bookkeeper does for you or is that something you as the client. She'd go in and check one hundred percent can be whatever you decide But when we handle books for clients we always do that We're always reaching out saying. Hey i need this month. Make statements so that we can so that we can do that and effectively officially closure books for the previous month. Because the last thing that we wanna do is closure books and then realized that fifteen items were missing and our official proof. Is your bank statement. 'cause i mean software's great but it does have hiccups from time to time I do want to say that if you're using pay pal. That has hiccups every single month. So you will have to be very close paying attention to everything that pay palsson over to quickbooks. The issue is the communication between those two systems is not very good. Okay good so And know With ebay going to manage payments. There's a lot less reliance on pay pal these days than previously. So i mean my mind. That's kind of a good thing. I love using pay pal. Don't get me wrong. It doesn't additional layer of protection for my credit cards But it doesn't talk nicely with quickbooks. So and then there's some there's some local credit unions that Don't do anything except forgive you. A paper statement so credit unions are wonderful We have our funds at a local credit union. That's only san antonio But again you have to look at what features your credit unions have to make. Sure it's gonna work for your business so But yeah reconciling one. Hundred percent vital. It's the only way to officially closure books for the year and for the month the other part of it is it will Keep you from skipping houses because we're all human and we are all extremely busy So last night you've met you might have gone to six stores. And then when you're typing in the inventory lab today you might only put in five 'cause you don't remember the sixth stop So it's very important there as well as the go line by line and make sure you get everything that you spent and that lowers your taxes and and really gives you try to have your business. Yeah i know a lot of people. We talk about Having a separate accounts that's important right having a dedicated business account not running things because people you know you might get started and you ran things through your your personal account to get started but as quickly as possibly one is which those up. Don't you hundred percent so you want to avoid the spaghetti complex. So let's the spaghetti complex is when you're looking at three hundred. Transactions for particular account and some are business. And some personal. And you might. You might buy business and personnel of the same story even And it's not easy for anybody Yourself included to untangle that spaghetti ami and it's it it takes you three or four times as long so so so the best thing to do is definitely get at least one account when you're getting started and said okay. I have this spare personal checking account that my mom set up for me when i was three And i've never really used for anything. We'll use that one and it is a good point. Doesn't have to be quote. Business checking account corrected just needs to be a separate one right when you're getting started and you don't have an official business formed or still doing sole proprietor. I just have one separate account. It can be whatever account. Just have it be separate. And that's good because a lotta times business accounts at some banks my charge a monthly fee whereas you might be able to easier easier to get a free account if it's just to what they call a personal one but your your dishonest needs to be separate. So that's about. I i i love Help a new people get started and people are saying man. I got this fee in this in this and this fee like holy cow You know. I'm just trying this thing out. I'm just getting started and so Trying to avoid that as much as possible so show people the the free way to get started But then you quickly realize you have a business. If you're making money you got a business now. And so let's start thinking like a business owner and But you try to keep the expenses low at the same time. We're and that's another reason. I love credit unions. There's very easy to go to her credit union and you can find a credit union that are not going to charge you the bank fees. They're just set up different there to serve the members their own by the members so obviously the members like i remember here. I don't wanna pay. That feels not charge that fee you know so credit unions you can actually build relationships with the with the with the credit union employees and you can call them up and actually talk to somebody and get the same person every single time that you know I have a great relationship with with our banking representative stella and she's on the commercial banking side and i call her up They were wants to say. Hey stella how's it going there like chris how you doing. I'm just not even a last name but like basis. That's awesome builders relationship because when your business grows you may need a line of credit and you're going to go to stella 'cause you know her exactly you gotta relationship. She knows your business. She knows you. So let's cool. She's she's like. I see your fill in our coffers while i'm trying 'cause you know it's it's in your bank it's in your credit union but it's still mind that's absolutely right. My guys. I know so a lot of being tax times coming up. You know you were talking about sleeping good at night. Let's get into what people can do to make sure that they're not you know Just worrying about this stuff because it doesn't have to be something that you worry about. I mean if you hold it all to the last minute you may be you know spending extra time doing it when you could have done it throughout the year But just what are some good practices to keep people to sleep soundly about their business numbers. it's great question so on that one You definitely want to review your numbers on a monthly basis. So i i do have a story short story. So i was helping the client recently and We liked to do reviews For our clients every month there as requested and sign into this review and him and his wife sir. And i've i've never met his wife and it turns out their husband wife. Tina do amazon and He does a lot of the Buying sourcing stuff like that and she loves to do the prep. because it's you know kinda artsy-craftsy as what she likes to do And they make a great team But she looked me straight in the face and said chris is this business worth it and i said well. That is a great question. Let's let's let's talk about it so we went over the entire numbers and said we'll hear the revenue. Here's the profit. Here's how much you paid yourself. Here's how much you could have paid yourself. You know the we went through all of that type of thing. And she's like that's great but we need more income. I said i said. Okay well How much income do you need. And she's like. Oh i don't know we just need more. You know some. I retired and we need to pay our bills and occasionally we'd like to you know Do something special. Msn okay Give me a number you know. Maybe we can come up on this call to a business plan for you and would that make you feel better like you have a game plan to follow for the next six to twelve months to get you need to be and she site. I think that would work. So then we had a quick discussion. we Through the course the very last course on know. Your numbers has a Has a worksheet in. They're in for planning out your business and I'm always tweaking that when To make it more relevant and more meaningful and always post the newest one know your numbers facebook but we went through that and say okay. We're gonna taylor this one hundred percent for your business. So let's pull up your profit and loss pool of your balance sheet all right. Tell me all your monthly expenses. So he went through. We listed them all out and said okay well this month. I know we pay this much for inventory lab. I know he pay this much for re pay this much for kifah i know. He pays much for a bookkeeper. We pay this much for prep center. I know we pay this much for shipping supplies. And it's a amount every month so we listed all those out and said okay. Well your your expenses that you're coming up with You're really gonna be looking at something. Like a thousand bucks a month for expenses at the level. They're doing it now realize for the newer sellers. You're not gonna have a thousand dollars expenses. But this is where they were and then they go. Okay we want to bring home four thousand bucks every month. I said okay. Totally doable put that in there. And i said okay. Well how much do you want to make on the business on top of that And they gave me a number. You know they're like okay. We'll every month that we wanna make like four hundred bucks off a cool. Let's plug that in. And then i said based on all those numbers you're probably gonna want to set aside fifteen percent of your Prophet inventory we call that real revenue or Gross margin you want to set aside fifteen percent of that for an attack savings account so when it's time to pay your taxes Then they're the money's already sitting there you're not like how do i pay my tax money. I mean like literally you never have to worry about paying taxes Because the money's argued there So then that came out to a number. Let's just let's collect six grand okay. We'll we need to make six grand real revenue gross margin every month. Now how do we get there So that we started digging into the numbers and says okay. We'll your gross margin for the year is twenty percent your average seller fees forty percent your average selling price as twenty five dollars. You know To get where you need to be. You need to sell about twelve hundred items at that price so Then we broke it all the way down and said okay. Well what do. I need to spend on inventory. Every single month says okay. Well based on your return a return on investment based on your average ternary all the stuff we talk about and of course You're gonna want to invest thirteen thousand dollars every month inventory and you need to buy your inventory at eleven dollars less if you're going to be selling it at twenty five bucks and they're like right so we have a game plan. I guess you need to go get twelve hundred items sourced and up available for sale and maintain all your metrics. And then if you do that then you will absolutely make four thousand dollars that she could bring home every single month. Yeah i love that. I said how does that make you feel everybody's like well which got it. There was there was no more like feelings about trepidation or fears or is it worth it. It's here's the game plan. This is where we need to get to. So they're like okay. Thanks for the call dr next month. So that's exactly. Chris why the and you know this is why the whole new your numbers course came to be. You had an idea like this. And i was been had been talking to people. And they're like i don't even know if i'm profitable and they would tell me ryan. I want to quit my job. But i don't even know how to get there. I know what number i need. But i don't know what you do in my business to get to that number and that worksheet in that course in my opinion was the courses amazing but that one work she right there is just is worth the whole expense because it gives people that game plan. I know that. In order to hit my goals i need to sell this much. Need to invest this much and it boils down to because sometimes you do this business as like i need to make this amount but that just seems like a big number. You don't know how even how to necessarily break down. Of course you can take your yearly goal divided by twelve. And that's my monthly. But you may not know what i need to do today to work towards that and you've got it down to where i need to go out and buy this much inventory. That's doable. Everybody knows like okay. I need to spend five hundred dollars this week. That's a doable thing. At something. I can control. Feels like that's in my control to go out and spend five hundred dollars on inventory but to go out and profit five grand this month. That doesn't seem like that. Seems like that's not controllable. It is but it doesn't feel like it but to say. I need to go out right now today and or this week and it's been five hundred dollars that i can do and the the important thing is the reason is the last item and of course because we spend the whole course telling you how to come up with all the other numbers you need so we show we show you where to get your average selling price. We show you how to calculate your are why we show you where to find your average trend rate and what that really means so It really lays the foundations for getting to this planning worksheet. I love ct cool. So you're mentioned that you wanna do a generous offer Talk about the people by the course. they get Get your consultation with you Beyond the free when you always offer right now. This one's a detailed look into your business. It's basically doing this entire calculation that we went through So i generally charge one hundred and fifty dollars to to do the business planning for folks But if you decide to purchase the course then We can go to my website and sign up and you'll get a hundred dollar coupon so it only costs you fifty dollars to actually do that so obviously the idea is you take you take the course so you learn about the number so when we need i can say okay. Well what is your gross margin. What is your average seller. Fees paid percentage. And you'll have that but Even if you don't go through the course than we can we can work through it.

I don't know a lot of people that do that. Coming up on this edition of the best moments of the Barbecue Central Show in ten minutes or less the guy that was just on meathead talks about. Let's say one was though this was back in September of two thousand sixteen. I'm sorry that is incorrect. December of of two thousand fourteen. We had a in depth discussion on perhaps many people's third or fourth favorite food fried chicken. We discuss it all dredging coating with the breading and doing doing the Pan fry versus the deep fry and what are the advantages of one versus the other of course any listener to this show.

The Cooking Sam says twenty minutes of Barbecue in fourteen minutes. That's my favorite episode. One or two. I want to keep this within the holiday season but I have to tell you bad as I was coasting through Cosco Friday or Saturday or whenever it was I think Saturday I quickly realized that there are are two different kinds of shoppers. In this while it happens to be during the holiday season. This has nothing to do with holiday. This is how you are made up as a human and there are two different kinds of shoppers There is a good shopper opera. The right way to do that shopper. Be but there's also shopper a and if you're not familiar with shopper a a shopper a will wake up one day and decide that it's a great idea to go to the store and you might be married or dating and Hey I'm going to go to the store and your next question is okay for what shop races. But I don't know I'm just GonNa go to the stored shop around and they get into the store and they find inspiration. I guess by milling up and down the aisles. Whether it's the Grocery Oh Sri store or the shoe store or the Department Store and eight times out of ten after they have done. Whatever Everett is they've been doing for hours on end they come back with nothing and you say did you go shopping? And they said Yeah Really didn't have anything. I don't understand what these people are doing. How can you possibly go to? A store are and not have a plan of attack. I'm telling you right now that if breathing and heartbeat it's were not involuntary actions if you had to choose to breathe and make your heartbeat in order to stay alive shopper. A might I choose against both of those and they would cease to exist and they would probably be okay with that because maybe it wasn't convenient need for them. They don't dig that they don't WanNa put that much effort into it shop way. Maybe let's go and see what happens. Who needs a list then? There Shopper beat shopper be is a productive member verve society. They value time. They value efficiency and to that end. They have a list that probably they're working on every week. It is somewhere accessible to everybody in the house as you are running out of things during the week before you go back to the store. That list is being filled out if you are a all tra- shopper. Be Like me and you go to the grocery store. You might have your particular favorite grocery stores aisles els memorized in order. So you can really efficiently fill out the list and the minute you hit the parking lot. You are go time boom home you hit the door you know. I'm getting bananas. I'm getting apples. I'm getting my vegetables. Now we're going over into the Deli section. Here we go. Here's the bread. I'll boom boom boom all the way through and you're systematically picking up everything that is on your list and it's almost a game. How quickly can I get out of the grocery store once I step foot in and I have my list? I'm being ultra-efficient. From time to time you might be around an item. That jogged your memory. That you wanted to try. It's not on the list. You have a short conversation with yourself on if it's going to make it into that shopping cart but you are able to maintain efficiency and effectiveness this fisa shopper. Be We value our time. We realize that once we were birthed the clock and timer has started taking backwards and we cannot undo that clock. It's not going to stop. And while we're not afraid to die we do realize that instead of meandering around the mall or the grocery store with no real rhyme or reason to be there. We don't know what we really need. We'll just throw a whole bunch of crap in the car and that's probably just going to get pushed to the back of the cabinet never to be seen again wasted we. Es Shopper B.'s. Value Time we would rather know that we can be efficient and get back to stuff that we want to do. That's shopper for be what are you. Are you shopper. A somebody who doesn't value time somebody who doesn't value efficiency someone who just likes to mill about because it's fun to shop. Can those words be used together. Fun and shop. I don't think some ah or are you shopper. Be Somebody who is precise effective efficient diligent. Ready to go in and out. Let's do this. We are commanders. We are leaders of humans to go into the the store. Get what we want and get out and then get afterlife again shopper a shopper and by the way since I you mentioned Cosco can somebody please tell me what the hell is going on in the food court over there when I was a member at. BJ's it was so uninhabited. The food court they uninstalled the entire food court. You go over to COSCO FIRST OF ALL COSCO's like black Friday every freaking being day. I've never seen anything like there's a line at ten o'clock or nine o'clock in the morning whenever the hell it opens the people are fighting to get in again not black flyer. It's just a Wednesday and people are all over Cosco like everything's about ready to sell out. It's a wholesale club. They have shit loads of stuff with truckloads on the docks to replace the shitloads of stuff that you are going to buy. It is unbelievable and a a have a huge food court and that place is packed. Like they're giving away three prime beef and Wagga Raghu briskets. Last I checked. It's hot dogs and pizza. Aside for the really cool sauce dispensing spinner. That goes on what looks to be a pretty average pizza crust. I can't begin to understand what is pulling people to the KOSCO food food court in droves and people don't leave it's a nightmare getting out of that store but the beats elections great and that's why I love our Kim Breaking boot court over there. Just piles coming up out of the break. I will talk to you about big POPPA smokers. Did you love big POPPA smokers. You know what he's got right rubs yes. Thirteen perfectly balanced rubs up.

Joining me now is a successful author blogger brand ambassador peers on TV of course the founder of Hardcore Carnivore branch rates for the hotline and. Welcome back it just prior to the show. Hey Hey I'm doing very well. Thanks for joining me. Lots to get to here this evening. First of all all I was burning up a storm right before you came on. Are you shopper. A or shopper. Be Intense well shopper. A just You know goes to the store to shop around and there's no list there's no rhyme nor reason and it's fun to shop a shopper. Be a values values life and time in general and efficiency. They make a list and they are in and out of the store and rarely do they deviate I'm shopping. Hey for close. Show close that much but I like hardcore shopper b-be when it comes to groceries know are you hard records. I am on shopper. Be By memorising the layout of the grocery store to most of my local grocery store chains. These are all liquid ago and I've never been. Yeah that took a while I had the same thing. Giant Eagle here It was about three years ago. They did a whole revamp so all the stores could look alike. They really screwed up about six miles and the I took a little while to get over there all right. So it's been a little while since jess has been back here on the show just piles dot com is the website you can follow her on twitter and instagram social media haunts of course Trying to figure out where we should be starting the thing that really seems to be jumping out at me and I've seen seen it here and there I see it with you. I've seen it with a guy by the name of Tim mccaskill. And it's this thing called beef tallow and it when I see so I don't. It's not on the top of my mind. I don't see it like in store. My Buddy James using it or anything like that but when I see it on your page age or you know somewhere else on a on a food Site like man. Yes it looks pretty cool. Looks like it would taste really good. have no idea how to get from point. A. A to point B. But obviously you do. I WanNa pick your brain about beef. Tell Yeah and you know so be fellow is basically the beef version of Lard so pork combat becomes Lord and be becomes callow and the differences that Lard or Wednesday soft but Taliban get quite hot which is why they used to make candles out of it Really really just like a lot of people. Still keep a a bacon grease next to their stove. we do it now because it tastes good historically directly. We did it because you didn't waste anything and instead of pouring little extra virgin olive oil in your pin. We weren't really importing that from Italy Italy back in the day you would just use a little bit of animal fat to start your cooking off. Be Fat is it a little bit different pork fat fat For example that you can use in baking because it soft nicot news ID pastries and biscuits the beef. That's phenomenal for frying back back in the day. McDonald's and places like that used to actually fry their French fries in it which is so deflect. The French fries about childhood and why they don't taste quite the same today and when you find like good greasy spoon that still trying tallow all these days. Amazing so that's the variable but it's really easy to make especially especially if you're trimming briskets at home you probably GonNa Leftover fat and it's just a matter of very very very slowly rendering down that fat Two melting points US US pouring in through to get any impurities out in less for months and months and months refrigerated and is it only like a couple stop process. You don't have to like do it once and put it back in and do it again to like the more you did not like a triple distilled vodka or something along those lines. I mean it can be you know if if you want to like the difference being of course like you can make take as long as eight hours to get lily white tallow out of it or you can kind of cheat it and do it in three hours hours and maybe it does a little hotter and has a little bit more of a yellowish color to it at the end. But it's basically just imagine putting it in in pot on the stove and money go then it's good for a long time. It's good it's good for a really long time. Do you make different tallows. For instance you Reference Brisk trimmings. But let's say you had a while I mean in your case you probably do. You have a lot out of dry aged beef hanging around in your dry aged beef machine. Can you make dry aged beef. Tallow and Brisk Italo and New York Strip tallow hello. I'm getting a little facetious at this point. But I mean can you have different flavor profiles of tallow and uses actually not being their positions because there's a measurement for fat right which is the tighter and brisket fat is very different complex makeup to any other fat on the carcass. Which is why it so soft and melty and it's actually not technically considered to make tallow but for everyone who's watching? Yes you can use it to make tallow us any beef. Fettes may tallow. You're if you're using age be talent. DRUDGE fat you're making dry age tallow because it's going to have that flavor carry-on on it but also because you're getting into that temperature above one sixty you're going to have killed any bacteria which may have been on there being on the surface from dry aging to the fun thing you can make which is also on my website it is. You can use tallow to make body butter because it's actually got a very similar makeup to the CPA Now Skin so If you're looking for a great great kind of carnivore friendly diy gift you can make these like jars of body butter pretty easily at home and you put it on your body. Well it's like moisturizer not to ask a stupid question here. But are you gonNA have a little bit of a beefy sent to you when you put that on or does that go away. No it goes away and you can add essential oils into a bit. This isn't the conversation you thought you were going to happen. But you see coconut well. Oil and I forget where like the baking section of my giant Eagle is so that's like the same sex where I get my ghee butter for my Kito coffee and then right next to it. Is this coconut oil. But you read the uses of it and then inevitably it says. Oh by the way in a pinch rub it on your skin. If you're moisturised so I mean it makes sense. I just I didn't know like it's actually even better than that because it's so much more similar to the makeup of our skin so it does it. It absorbs without feeling greasy is there. Is there a specific use that you think beef tallow is best for meat. Had referenced If you have a young steak you could take some dry aged beef fat fat and paint the state to give it a little bit more character of flavored. You buy into that at all or best uses. I think that that's you know that has as much Merida's Erin is using different oils to cook with that. That olive oil will have a different flavor profile to Walnut oil which will have more flavor again like a neutral vegetable actionable oils. I'm certainly using a beef fat. It's GonNa add another layer of flavor in. I don't know if it's GonNa you know really do much more than lipstick on a pig in terms of improving a super young state but I think that it really comes to its own when you're talking about frying so I did read by the teacher onto rebuy which they serve in Mexico liberally chunks of Rebuy cut up and deep fried until it's incredibly crispy on the outside and still kind of tender in in the middle. It's good that sounds that using fries I start my roast potatoes with it too so I get a couple of generous teaspoons in the in the roasting pan into the oven. Nice and hot dump your royal potatoes into their sizzling. You get that that they're like little sponges for that hot beef fat so I think you know it's one thing to try and make that make meat tastes better. It's another magical thing when you get the fats and make vegetables tastes better. No no doubt about it just prior to joining me here on the show just prior dot com or website hardcore carnivore dot com or website. If you WANNA check out her products and grab some items here. We'll talk about that here in a minute. let's talk about Prime Rib here And really dig into it because this is. I don't think it's like Turkey you know Probably more prime rib over the course of the year sure than people eat Turkey. Turkey seems to be relegated to only this time of the year one point last month some people will double up a need it again at Christmas or whatever holiday your celebrating eating over this portion of the year but prime rib and Christmas seemed to be a little bit more hand in hand like Thanksgiving Turkey. So it's way more expensive than Turkey even if you're buying an airline by the way back out totally and do a left hand turn. Are you familiar with the heirloom Turkeys. And do you eat those. I mean you know Australia thanksgiving so we really don't do that. and honestly someone who's on the side of the fence that I'm on. I'm required to cook my Turkeys about a month. Not before Thanksgiving to get everyone ready for the recipes because like that's when people like put the recipe up doing your pictures so by the time it gets to thanksgiving. I'm like I pay some having Chinese food. Yeah so yeah I'm familiar. I mean it's like any heirloom breed. You know whether it be a cattle or pigs or Turkeys for that matter so I haven't cooked with him yet but I can imagine or so turkeys by and large way less expensive than the prime rib so we don't WanNa screw that up to what are your keys to success on prime rib and Are you a person that would like go. Big and do the whole seven bone or are you more of a whatever your size party is going to be. Let's Kinda Trim it down and be a frugal but make sure that we also have enough for everybody. So the thing is this in my opinion the leading bone in his basically. Just like it's a pure showmanship at that point so if you WanNa if you WANNA seven bone in terms of like the grandeur of the bone and you want it to the point where the bones Tomahawk length. And they're they're it's this whole thing when you bring it to the table so be it bones on me. Don't change the flavor of the meat unless you're raising it so unless that bone is immersed in liquid and you're actively boiling Mero and other minerals out of the bone It doesn't change the flavor. What it does do when they meet cookery? Is it protects the meat meat during cooking so for example You New York Strip that was bone in one side. Has the protective bone calls the protective fat. You're doing yourself favor however each each. You have a foolproof Way To cook it which we would do for for prime rib with Gruber sear. It's not necessary so you can. I mean I recommend that. I'm going to be posting a video in the next couple days on my instagram. Actually I just did a boneless rural and you can buy the whole one and just size sizes down to how many people that you're going to be a cook and force it. Maybe a half is GonNa do it too obviously just has to be a minimum size to get a good result for the cooking. But you basically want to do the reverse era and to be clear the reverse series not using any specific piece of equipment. It's just the idea of using a low. Oh cooking temperature and then resting me. And then applying a high heat two sear it so that could be sued and then cast iron sear indirect grilling an and then direct grilling. It could be UBBEN. CAST irons here. It could be smoking and then you know the hot grilling whatever. It is the point that it's low and then high. Hi Honestly You Know I. It's sort of shameless. But it's true. The real secret is at my hardcore black robe which is that rubbed that has the activated charcoal charcoal in it Because particularly a lot of folks this time of year you know. I know it's barbecue central. Some people do it in their ovens some people do it in a smoker. No matter what you're doing it in to maximize the bar on an item that not really GonNa be in there for very long. Probably only gonNA take two to four hours Max ax. You'RE GONNA want that head start on the color and in fact if you're super duper extra lazy or you had too many beers it also saves your butt because is you. Don't actually have to see her already. Look seared doubt do you is there. A certain is just like a salty flavor profile that the the hardcore black cast to. Yeah it's really simple. My whole ethos with the robes is that where all here for the meat and I WANNA taste me. I don't WANNA taste sugar. I don't WanNA taste overbearing. Spices and the black was the first one in the line. Very simple traditional garlic onion and Some lights you probably wouldn't even taste it's earthy chilies in their course black pepper hallmark of Texas cooking just to enhance the flavor. Served the meat to really truly be a seasoning. Not a flavor additive. If that makes sense Oh works really would be in regards to the rib role you can just call up a butcher richer and say ripple and they'll know that no bones are supposed to be in that or do you need to clarify just depends where you're at in the country. Yes I mean. There's there's a book that you can e up shown before that a lot of people got excited about but the reality is that it is very industry heavy. It's the Nami meet guide not old witches even aware of it honestly the best last thing to do is just to outwardly. Say That you WANNA boneless rebuy role in. It also is quite confusing for people because the name prime prime rib you know you can get a select grade. Prime Rib so prime rib doesn't necessarily mean that the the beef is prime grade. Trade refers to any part of that revival. And it's not even a specific section so kind of drives the industry nuts. Because it's one of those like Kleenex. No doubt about it. Kleenex Kleenex just happens to be the name that everybody associated with that Prime Rib. But it's not prime grade Blah Blah Blah. So when you are. Are you just going to tell people to cook to whatever temperature they want or do you believe that you know really. It's best at a medium Liam rare maybe medium rare plus and then anything above that. You're taking your life in your own hands. I mean it's America. You have delivered ready to Cook Your Steak House. God Damn Watch sake but I prefer it. I used to order it rare and to be honest with you. I much prefer a proper medium rare these days. There's something about that. gummy noticed that just gets cooked out a little bit so you can still get a nice beefy flavor and the texture improves a little bit. But you you can get them. You know pretty reasonably well all the way up to medium to. I definitely think that there's no point. Reverse Syrian if you do like it well done Because the point of reverse sears to try fight against much pink coast to coast and if you like your steak while you're going for great the whole way through so you may as well. Just get hot and fast. So will you be doing prime rib for uh for Christmas then I would accept going to be in Mexico or somewhere. I don't know I've already took my practice a month or six weeks in advance of whatever the real holiday is right on the holiday. All all right we're talking with just piles you can find her just prowse dot com and hardcore carnivore dot com.

It's effort to do these cooks and record them. You're going to have this incredible journal of information that's going to last. This is like something your grandma was she would've had when she was doing the recipe book. Then she had stone paper like where the hell do you even finestone paper. How does that happen? I can't tell you that. Ah I can't tell trade center. Wow Are you the first person that's done this like I've never heard of before my life there stone paper journals. I'm the first person into my knowledge But pretty sure to apply to a barbecue or Chefs cookbook a month book. This is out now or words coming out. No it's coming it's coming.

We are back with more just prize right after this round be right back continuing to produce bruce incredibly mediocre content in an exceptionally professional way. You're listening and watching the barbecues central show once again. uh-huh here's your host Greg Ramp. All right welcome back. We are being joined by just just prior from just piles dot com and hardcore carnivore dot com. Follow her on the social media. I mean pretty much. Everybody knows already. If you're part of this alive fire how many like Social media followers stuff. Do you have right now. Give any idea a thousand hens of your are you are you. Are you down on social. I'm down on the socials. I hate them now. A year ago I was a year ago. I was trying to figure out. How can we blast the ship off in the space and now I'm like can we crash this mother effort right down to the ground walkaway? It'd be done. I don't know what it definitely goes in in ways. I I you know what the big difference for me is. I'm not trying to chase I'm not trying to play the game. I'm not trying to play with what I think. It wants me to post anymore. We've spoken about this before or I'm just putting my stuff out there as kind of a portfolio who I really am and who the product really is and if we follow along ingrate. 'cause I'm not about to spend my time trying to just you know chase the dragon as it were. Let's talk about this beef subscription box and I've You know I've seen one in particular and I don't maybe I just. I'm not looking for them but I guess there appear to be more and more rolling out and there was a specific. I don't know if it was an instagram story. Or something thing that I saw have yours and you are a little You were taking any an issue with things that were happening and I view it Moraes's whereas you know some people come across like she's just barn and on something and Blah Blah Blah. It's just stick but I I see this more of you being the advocate for the consumer especially Ashley One that might see a big name associated with this box and for the one specifically there are quite a few big names tied to it. And right you know I see it as you say. Hey you know. Let's Wade through the heat here and this is what I'm really trying to tell you. Is You know you better. Beware and there's some things you need to know about these services Mrs so you're an educated consumer. Do what you want like. You said it's America's spend your money freely but make sure you know what you're getting into and don't just buy into the hype because such such and such as names attached to. Yeah I mean I mean whether it's an influence or or destroyed out of celebrity endorsement. That's what they get paid to do. Right Right And make you want to buy that product I think for me. The thing is that I have the ability and yes I you know. I am an educated consumer like you said but I think that the role that I play in the industry is a someone who is much much much more clued in on the beef side of things be production actual processing and and to some degree without actually having a degree. The Meat Science all a bit too I can. I can decipher things that I sit there and go you know like you throw your hands up all like gone on so I'll tell you here. Here's a good analogy and then I'll tell you about someone obscene. There is a smoker company for a while. That and I think most your earnings as we get this the mark what they were marketing their there quicker as was competition grade right. That doesn't mean anything because you can roll up to a competition and win on modified World Drum but you know what I'm saying. There's there's no one that that look after that. There's no one that that that sanctioned competition grade but that's what they came up with so when the person who doesn't really know what they're doing is walking into their average barbecue shop and went all well that better. It begins competition grade right. So the the the existence of barbecue beef subscription boxes is great because because it allows for smaller holder ranchers that know that they have great product to get a a a high air products for their product by skipping the middleman and going directly to consumer right the problem with that. Is that a lot of these box. Subscriptions subscriptions aren't graded because signing up for USAA grading is expensive. And so you're taking their word for it that they're only gonNA put really good beef in there because some ranchers as as much as they loved their cattle as much as they want to be great ranchers maybe. They don't have the genetics. They are made it. I don't have money behind it on producing good be. So you're talking about a system. That's basically an honor system riot where the consumer doesn't really know a better because now that gray that's guaranteed by the USDA WHO's a third party has been taken out and you have to take the word that they were going to send you base for the most part they do because if they send send you bad beef you're never going to buy another ball right but it's still a little bit unknown. The thing that I really dislike about it is I'm here for all beef. And that means the big guys the little guys and I really dislike when the industry turns upon itself in order to sell. Don't worry and some of the little guys are using scare tactics like nowhere. Your meat comes from which was a big part of it as well And for me you know. There's traceability throughout particularly in countries like Australia and you can actually trace it all the way back to the ranch inch in the US you can trace it all the way back to the processing plant and before that it actually doesn't make a difference in terms of the health and wellbeing of the piece of meat. Need that you have to know any more information than so some of these boxing. When particularly the one that you saw I just found it fascinating donating because the people who have gotten speak on their behalf coming at it from the perspective of nowhere it comes from? It's this grass-fed head it. Better for you with the inference. It's better for you and that it's sustainable. And that basically this stuff is better quality which I I know where they're getting it from and it is very good quality but that basically somehow you're you're doing the the right thing By the neely there they don't say it but there's an inference that that local board thing to shop local eat local Google keep it. Sustainable sustainability is a big thing. Now what they do tell you because it's completely available on their website but you absolutely have dig for it because it's no. We're on the front page. Is that every single. Be Piece of beef from Australia because Australia has far superior grass finished beef than the. US does in in much more widely available quantities. Just because of the landscape of Australia right because of the the feed that we have It's like you know. America grows corn better Australia grow grass fed beef better. Other people grow tomatoes better so that is horticulture so you and we have good genetics. Too So A The problem is you've got a lot of people said the question I asked my social media was. Would you be surprised if you knew that. One of the biggest subscription boxes. We talked about sustainability imports from Australia. Yeah and I'm I'm not saying that the good thing or bad thing it's just like what do you think is a consumer and everyone threw their hands up and was like the. How can it not be American be fumble Blah and? I just think that there's also a lot of people out there that don't realize that It's not coming coming from you. Know within their state let alone within their country It would serve them well to kind of scratch beneath the surface. I had another email email among all the time from people trying to start these boxes so you might have one or two of the bigger ones but I get contacted all the time. I WANNA send you once in a while. Which is Kinda why I wanted to do this? Big Ride it up. And these people wrote on their website arm that grasps the B never grades above choice or never never graze above. Select or something like that and I wanNA roll back said Hey would love to know your thoughts on this you know and also they tried to use they they they talked about basically certified speeds that you know they use different name that the industry calls it and I'm like hey I can actually read. What the says what do you you think about this? What do you think about this and then I got this really long email back like okay? You know what you're talking about. Basically they said and I'm sure they have great product too but they said well. That's just our opinion on grass could be and if we put it on our website like that. It's just our opinion I said but you're you're putting up there like marketing material saying that this is how it is and I know for a fact that you can get grasp at the that marbles prime and eaten it so without bogging down too much in specific details. I think the thing that frustrates me is. There's a lot of of scaremongering. This is how it should be an a lot affects flying around that are eroneous. There's a lot of Buried details details in this big quest to give you the best in the freshest than in know where it comes from And I'm here to say that if you find a butcher a boxer a beef box that you really enjoy That's awesome because you're still eating meat and that's great for for the industry. But I don't necessarily think that it's better than some of the better grocery stores out there and what they carry so so should if you're a subscriber to be Fox's than I haven't gone to any websites to really like look through the whole thing. Should you be under the impression that that beef box number. One that you get Is going to be one thing and then beef box number two might have a completely different Beef Purveyor so if it's Australian beef this time it might be somebody else and should you be made aware of that or are you just signing up for whatever you're basically you're signing signing up for the beef and wherever they're picking from you know we hope you'll like it will it depends so some of that so it depends what they wanna do so one of these ones the one. That's getting it from Australia Australia. They want to offer their consumers high quality grasp finished product. So all their stuff is gonNA come from Australia. There are other ones who you want to source from a whole lot of different farms. So you'll get different stuff. Every time there's there are other ones that are more like a lineal like Veggie co off Fox right where you'll get different cuts. It's every time and you can't even select your pets so it really just depends in. You can find something that works for you But I guess just you know. Don't fall Dojo for the high. That's all if you like it and it's great price and it's great flavor in it fits your needs. That's awesome but just know that you know there's other stuff out there too and it's not necessarily at the expense of the marketing Story that we're being told and I think at this point if you're if you have any Monaco of Internet expertise you can find a lot of great me purveyors Some were here locally summer offshore and a whatever you like you can find you. Don't have to be relegated to signing up for a box you can go to the snake river farms website. You can go to PAT freebies website. You can go to a hassle. Cattles webs stroup brand. I mean the list goes on and on at this point in this day and age here in two thousand at the end of two thousand nineteen which is rapidly coming to a close. Just I don't know if you knew that you can hit did any kind of freaking beef that you want finished almost any way you want and you don't have to sign up for any type of subscription and if you don't like it from this guy this it's time you can buy it from a different ranch next time. and Are you really saving that much money or are you. Are you saving any money. If you're subscribing to uh-huh box or or is it their argument for the boxer in supported the boxes What you can't get from the big guys in these small hold ranches like I said that maybe hold a couple dozen head of cattle? They're slaughtering WANNA week. They've got great genetics and they're pairing about it but they just can't pay the grade and you can in fact end up kind of finding this diamond in the rock right just stumbling onto this great farm that has his feet but a great prize. Then it's a really cool story and that happens the other thing that I I think it's important to mention is and I know it's not possible for everyone because you know I go around the classroom Around on the country doing grilling classes and in some regional areas. You struggle a little bit more but there is something to be said for fresh beef as well which is not to say it hasn't been aged But anything that you order online is gonNA come frozen. It's going to be half have to be frozen to be shipped in. It is actually a different cooking an eating experience. What power free doesn't ship frozen fresh? But how far does he ship all over the country. I just don't understand how you can ship not frozen meat is what I'm saying like it has to go on dry ice at least by the time it gets to Texas. It's going to be similar. Froze he's got this. What the Hell you call it? I'm going to say ice pack but not is I think he calls him Gel packs but his his is separator. Is that no matter where you are. Obviously you know the mainstay of that business is through restaurant and all the notion. But he's gotten gotten into the end user. I'll call it a portion of it pretty heavy over the last eighteen to twenty four months but two separate from everybody else that ships frozen to your point. His Shit shows up fresh. And it's in a big cooler and he's got these gel packs that keep it. I guess you know right under where the danger zone Temperatures would be and it doesn't matter where you're at. I don't know what that looks like from a shipping cost to make sure gets to you without getting unsafe but his music is shows a fresh. You can unpack it. Throw it right on the grill. You don't need to wait a day the holidays or two days so just a little. But he's the only one I know that does it so everybody else's this is has showed up frozen so it's pretty incredible. I would still probably stick the mammary before I cook fish. And he and he says the way they package it once you get into your house you know it will stay in your refrigerator for three weeks or so before you know he would get a little anxious anxious about actually cooking and eating so I thought that was a pretty long time for fresh showing up especially I. Don't you know depending on when it actually gets to your house and then three weeks out after that. Yeah absolutely absolutely all right. So let me ask you lastly completely divergent barbecue and grilling did you. Try the Popeye's chicken sandwich I meant to today. I know God dammit I listen listen listen to me very carefully. I can already tell you that I like it. I haven't tried it but I like it. I Fraser it was the most underrated fried chicken out there phenomenal. Is it underrated. I'll fight you. Yes because there are people who automatically dismiss it like back. It's it's disgusting but I'm telling you can't you Lok all is insane conspiracy so you think that's one of the best examples or fried chicken out then ivory or so. Oh here's what I'm telling three weeks ago. I had the most dramatic interview of my life. Twelve years of doing the show and it was from a fellow tax text date while not technically. He's a fellow Buckeye but also a transplant. Like yourself into Texas Daniel Vaunt editor of Texas and we were talking about. We had all this build up a lot of drama and then I asked him to rate the chicken sandwich and I. This was the rating scale. Not In in the scheme of Fast Food Fried Chicken Kentucky Fried Chicken Popeye's Chick-fil-a you name. I said in the grand spectrum of everything you've ever eaten one being the worst and ten being the best thing ten being the best thing he rated it a seven and I said Daniel I have to question everything. Everything you've ever said in your life that you write a Popeye's chicken sandwich a seven out of ten so I have to ask you. Do you think and I'm asking you to speculate. Even though you think it's going to be good. Do you think it could be a seven out of ten. That Yeah you handle that vulgar seven out of ten absolutely beaten in the best restaurants in the world old and you're gonNa tell me that it could only be one or two or three points away from that but those those three points matter like you're getting a dipping being into the pointy end. Then they start to matter but yes it. It's what's over satisfaction. Do you derive from it. You know what I'm saying like flog raw right. I of low fog role that much. I'm sorry that amazing right. There are people who would say the ten just because his fog right all right. I mean possible right but from pure if I take all of the pressure away of what people expect I mean to say about it versus the pure enjoyment of it. I can tell you that sandwich will be better but but we can. Perhaps we can agree on this. Let's let throw seven immediately. Yeah through it. Let's say that honestly it's probably not gonna be any better than a four but you can derive a great amount of joy out of it but still realize that in the grand culinary world. It's a four but it can bring you happiness and joy and maybe it's got texture you got crunch you've got heat. You've got seasoning. You've got acidity pickle like law intents and purposes that is a balance culinary dish and not to immediately jump sides and Gopro Papas. People are literally killing people over. I mean I mean that's hard to nobody's killing people to go into Michelin Star rated restaurants or anything like that people are killing over. Popeye's chicken say what can I talk.

Ep 9: 10 Ways to journal

"I'm Laura Tremaine. And I have ten things to tell you. And do you have ten things to tell. This is an interactive podcast each episode has a prompt and a topic that I want you to take your journal text to your best friend or answer on social media. Using the hashtag ten things to tell this show about digging deeper and sharing our stuff. I'll go first. Every episode of the show, I having courage, you to take the topics and props to your journal now, maybe you glossed over that part because you don't keep a journal because keeping a journal seems a little bit too much thirteen year old girl to you. Or maybe because keeping a journal starting journal is way too overwhelming. Where does one start a journal, especially as an adult? How do we do this is it lame? Is it private will? I feel dumb. It's possible. Of course that a lot of you listening are ready. Keep a journal if that's the case, I really really want to hear from you. And how you do it. You know, have to show me what your journal necessarily looks like please definitely do not show me the words inside. But sharing the way that you turn your process that is helpful because there are a ton of. Different ways that a person might keep a journal, and there is no right way. But if you do wanna share the way that you keep a journal, please make sure and tag the show at ten things to tell you. Before I give you some journal idea inspiration. I just want to apologize to my sweet dad, although I doubt, he's listening. If he is he is cringing so hard and about four seconds away from asking me to remove this whole episode. My lawyer dad has always been uncomfortable with me not keeping a journal. But Helling everyone about my journal since I was truly like a preteen so early in my life. He has always warned me that my journal could be subpoenaed in a trial. What trial? Do you ask? I have no idea a hypothetical trial in the future where my journal might contain my murder plans knock wood right now because I truly hope I am never charged criminally with anything ever. But it so the cat is out of the bag. I keep a journal and prosecutors would be sorely disappointed. It'd in its contents. I assure you, but because I have kept some sort of a journal since I was in elementary school. I can tell you why I love doing it. My journaling over the years my stacks and stacks of journals. They look really different from one another as I have grown up. My introspection has changed as my time management has changed. What I value about. What was in those pages has shifted, but one thing has stayed consistent. And that for me is the fact that writing things down helps me figure out how I feel and as a person who has a lot of big feelings all the time, sometimes competing feelings or feelings that are too confusing for me to untangle it usually highlights for me, what the main thread is or what I really want to remember or often the act of physically writing something. Down. It just brings emotions or insights to the surface. I might not have noticed with my own messy thoughts that can be all over the place. Also, I just genuinely love looking back at my life in this way. When you keep a journal, you are a witness to your own personal growth. Even when you can't see it clearly, but when you look back once, you know, how a certain situation unfolds. It's really interesting to see the flags that came up in your journaling that you couldn't decipher at the time. This is true with relationships parenting work staff, anything in hindsight when you're able to read back it helps you understand yourself and your growth, it's just a fascinating personal tool. Now, if you don't journal do not let that be discouragment that you don't have an old stack of pretty notebooks. If you are so inclined to start keeping a journal. I hope this episode gives you some ideas on how to do that. And. And one of my main life mantras is start where you are just start a year from now you'll be glad you did. I'm gonna give you ten different types of journaling in this episode all of which I currently use or have used at one time, again journaling doesn't have to be complicated. And depending on my mood or my season of life for my general fatigue or interest level. I'm often combining several of these at one time not like on the same day, maybe within the same week definitely within the same notebook. So do feel free to mix and match methods. You are under no obligation to journal in just one type of way. So here we go ten ways to journal number one, the first and most obvious way, we're gonna talk about journaling is the most basic, dear diary, notebook journaling. This is I think what most people think of when they think about journaling. It's also what people are generally scared of. Traditional journaling goes something like March twenty sixth this happened. And this is how I feel about it. I do this type of journaling not daily but regularly and in the big picture. It's probably the most valuable type of turning I do, but I can tell you that it can sort of be chore. Sometimes not because I feel the need to write down every event or every feeling, but yeah. In some ways, it can just be a little bit of a task, even when I'm getting something out of it. It's like exercise or something. But I am so grateful to have journals of this type when I was young. I somehow got the message that writing down the stuff I was doing like I went here. Then we went here was stupid. And so I ended most of the facts and just spent pages upon pages on my feelings around whatever happened. So now twenty plus years later. Her when I look back on some of these entries. I have a good feel for where my heart was. But I have no idea what actually happened. Now. I know that it is quite helpful to include a sentence or two about the actual events sue broke up with Jack. And this is how I feel about it. Especially now that I'm a mom this type of journaling is important to me because I want to know what was going on with my kids what we did the actual nitty gritty documenting of a life, which is different than processing out your feelings. Although when you're journaling they can often go hand in hand. I actually ride out this type of journal as if my future ancestors were reading it. I'm sort of embarrassed to admit that clearly I've read too many novels of this type. But in some ways, I do write out this journal as if it's going to be read doesn't mean I censor it. Totally maybe I do a little bit. But it's not. A fully messy slog like some of the other ways that I journal. I am writing it a little bit for an audience. Even if that audience is just a future me, it's still a journal though. I do put my truest feelings inside. And that is not always pretty I really do ride out. How and feeling the good the bad the ugly a tiny part of me, maybe thinking that one day. These words will be read. But when they are they will be true. Number two. The second way to journal is a lot easier. If documenting and writing pages upon pages about your feelings is not for you. Then maybe you would prefer to journal by making a list when I am too tired or overwhelmed. I often just make lists in my journal. This is especially handy when there is a ton of stuff going on. I will make a list of things I want to remember about this vacation. I'll make a list of things that are bothering me right now or things that are bringing me joy right now, I'll make a list of fears. I'll make a list of the little things. My kids said over Christmas. I will make a list of the main points of a conversation that I want to remember forever. Sometimes if I have more time later, if the mood strikes, I'll expound upon something that's on that list or even just on the list at self. But if you're short on time, or if you're not the type of person who. Is ever going to write out a bunch of paragraphs, then brain dump onto the paper in the list that is still journaling that is valid documentation and processing of your life experience. And by the way. My lists entries are in my regular journal alongside all other regular entries. Just because it's a casual way of getting down these thoughts. It does not mean that has to live on like a post it note, you can have a whole notebook dedicated to this type of journal. This is your journal or you could just incorporate it into your regular type of journaling with full sentences for me, it's just so helpful to get out of my brain and heart and onto the page. Number three along these same lines. You could also commit to just one sentence day. They actually make specific journals just for this purpose. But you could always do it yourself in whatever notebook you have if every day you wrote down the most important part of that day. The one thing you want to remember of that day. Just one sentence describing it that alone could really be a reflection of your life. You could make it part of your evening routine. Keep a little notebook beside your bed as you crawl into each night. Take a few moments to reflect on the day right one sentence. And that's it. You can even do this in your planner. If you use a paper planner, if you wanted you could be so low maintenance about it the pressure is off you could meditate on your one sentence. The thing that stood out to you in the day almost like a gratitude journal, or you could just know that you captured one little moment of your life. Life. I think if you did the one sentence thing for thirty days, and then you look back. You might be astonished at the things that you might otherwise have forgotten or whatever stood out on random Friday might surprise you. You'll be glad to have those sentences. Number four. So this method has been one of the more interesting for me and not because I like it. I'm actually scared of it sort of which is probably something to be explored in my wait for it journal here. I'm going to call it free flow journaling, I've no idea if this kind of journaling has an official name, I I heard of it in Julia Cameron's book, the artist's way and she calls it morning pages. Because she recommends that you do this first thing when you wake up before coffee or conversation or anything because free flow journaling or morning pages. If you do it that way, it is exactly what it sounds like you just free flow, everything that comes to your mind, just dump it all out without worrying about punctuation or complete sentences. If it makes sense, it's just an absolute translation of your thoughts into words onto the paper. There's no structure. It just whatever comes to your mind goes on the page now people who are loyal to morning pages or free flow journaling, they will say that it unlocks something. If you do it for long enough, I think the general recommendation is to do it nonstop for like thirty minutes, or until you fill three whole pages, whichever comes first. And some people report that it is almost like your subconscious takes over in the artist's way she advises that you have to keep the pin moving even if all you're writing is. I don't know what to say, blah, blah, blah. What am I writing that the important thing here is that your pen to paper free flow thought this kind of journaling actually stresses me out a little bit? Not the free flow parts, but the don't lift the pinup part. It makes me feel like there's a journal emergency somewhere. And if I stop writing there might be an explosion like Sandra Bullock, driving the bus in speed. I do not. Wait to this method. It does not make me feel then, but I do know that it works for a lot of people creative people in particular. So it should be on this list. I do practice a version of this free flow journaling, but without the pressure to keep riding no matter what and see what comes up I will sometimes especially if I'm trying to work through a problem right down. My racing thoughts or at least try to catch up with them. And there is something to this that brings some clarity. I think when you're handwriting like this without any rules grammar structure, like not worrying about making any sense. Your brain does something different. So must like the same concept of why good ideas happen. When you're in the shower, your brain relaxes in some other kind of way that opens up a channel, and that can't really be replicated any of these other methods. I'm talking about so free flow journaling has a really specific. Thicke value. And it's the only type of journaling that I don't keep I tend to throw away my free flow journal entries after I write them because its use is in the process, a do not take much from it. When I look back over it later. Number five piggybacking on the magic of your subconscious. When your pin is flowing. I'm gonna take more of a woo turn here that will sound so weird to some of you and others will claim that you've been doing version of this for forever. That is intuitive journaling, listen, I know this sounds like a thing that would never work. But it really does. I I heard about this from Jess lively, she's a podcast called the lively show of listened to it for years. But after I I heard her talk about it. I've actually seen it reference in other places. So I guess this is a thing. I should know about it intuitive journaling is asking your intuition, your soul, your deepest self a specific question, and then writing down whatever comes up, of course, you could do this without the journal part. You could just in meditation. Ask yourself. Something, but I find it to be so effective in journal form because then you can't talk yourself out of whatever shows up on the page. The answer is the answer. And there it is let me give you an example of intuitive journaling, maybe I really don't wanna go to my cousins upcoming wedding. And I can't really figure out why have all this resistance around. It. Like, why am I dreading the supposedly happy event by cannot shake it cannot bring myself to find address etc. Etc. And I'm really bothered by all the feelings. I have around it. And the dang event is coming up. So how can I get in a better brain space? Well, pull out the notebook amusing intuitive journaling, we can just do this in a regular journal, of course, at the top of the page. Right. Why am I dreading cousin Sarah's wedding? Then you sit for a minute with your pin poised. Do not be too quick to answer sequentially and write down whatever comes up, even if it's random, and the very first thing that springs to mind is that you don't have anything to wear. Well, you might write that down. But you also know that that's not the real source of your bad feelings here to sit quietly for a few more minutes, and as the sand starts to shift. You write down whatever comes up, whatever little tiny whisper is there and before you know, it it dawns on you that cousin Cirrus, mom and Cina. She said something off handed to you at the last family gathering, and it has settled in to your bones. But you tried to brush it away. You didn't even let yourself think of it because you love aunt Gina and you're happy for cousin, Sarah. But this one little thing is a tiny red flag of something bigger. And now, you're getting honest about it. Once you get to the root of feeling of your resistance, or whatever it is that you're asking your intuition about once you come to some sort of an answer, it's up to you. Then if you take further action, maybe it requires an honest, follow up with aunt Gina or maybe now that you're aware of it. You can just acknowledge this thing that's been bothering you. And then you can let it go. But the sitting still with yourself the asking of specific question and letting your deepest self answer that is the important part in intuitive journaling, if you've never heard of intuitive journaling or asking your intuition of question do not outright dismiss this next time. You're puzzling over something just try it. I've asked my intuition all kinds of things about other people about situations about myself while I may not totally hit the Mark every time it's not science. But I always always get a little closer. To the answer. I'm looking for. Number six affirmation journaling. I promise we're gonna take a hard right back to practical stuff in a minute. But I am fairly new to after mation journaling and I own loving it. This is something that's all over the self help world. It has been for years like decades. Remember, those Stuart Smalley Saturday live skits that ended with doggone it people like me, this is kind of affirmation journaling doing. I formations is a mainstay of self help and of the people who make fun of self help. And yet there is something about it. They gets into your psyche. I've been writing down my applications since the beginning of the year and throughout the day when insecurities creep in they pop right into my mind. There is something at work there. Affirmations are statements that build you up you can view them either as something you're shooting for. Reminders of who you want to be or who you actually are mine work best when they are. I am statements, for example. I am beautiful in this body or I am a positive person. If you've been giving yourself a lot of negative talk. Maybe about the way you look, maybe you're being outwardly negative, and you wanna shift that writing down. And I am statement every day it somehow seeps into your blood, and when you open your mouth to say something negative that after mation that you wrote down earlier it shows up and it lodges in your throat, I am positive person. The new closure mouth. I have five formations. I've been doing since January a mix of personal family work and body. I had no idea that writing down these affirmations each morning would be so effective. This is the one type of journaling that I wish that I had started years ago. It's not a very exciting journal. I've been using separate notebook for these. So they're just the same five sentences over and over with the date. It is not something that anyone else would be interested in at all. But these little phrases they are becoming almost like many mantras, and they are reshaping my inner self talk and how I'm showing up in the world. Number seven. Okay, less. Woo. And more tack. Of course, you know, that there's an app for everything. So there's definitely an app for journaling. I'm a big big fan of using pen and paper journal. I think that it sends a different kind of signal to my heart and my brain. But I know that not everyone has that connection. An online journaling has a few other benefits for this modern world one. Of course, being that your phone is almost always with you. So if you wanna jot down a quick journal like thought, you have it right there in your pocket and to online journaling is storing these things in the cloud. So there's no fear of losing it or it getting stolen or God. Forbid, a natural disaster. Taking all of your life's journals, those are pretty big benefits to the digital thing. The only actual journal app that I've used briefly was called day one. One. And I did really like it the day one app. I liked the interface. It was pretty at allowed you to add photos, which is a bonus and you could keep multiple journals. So for a while I had a work journal where I was kind of keeping track of my progress on a project, and then I had a personal one for little bit while I was trying this. I ended up not loving journaling in this way. But it wasn't the app. It was just that. I prefer paper journals. I can see how people might really be drawn though to the journal idea. You can do some Google searching and Allison show notes the day one app that I was using. This brings us to number eight if you are fully digital or if the benefits of your journal being saved on a manically. Maybe you're just a better typer than a writer the other option here is just to keep a word document that your journal. You can always set it up to save automatically to the cloud or to dropbox, Google, whatever I have kept files like this off and on since college. I don't think I would ever switch to it fully, but it's really helpful to me to be able to type things sometimes because I'm a fast typer. So if there's a huge event or something I really wanna capture a ton of thoughts. My hand will get tired if I'm handwriting it. And so then I'll just give up and maybe I'll never like finish what I was trying to get out there. So a few times a year when that's the case, I will turn to some kind of digital document. And then occasionally if it's important to me, I'll print it out and tape it into my regular journal just so that it. It lives in the time line with everything else. Again, you can always mix and match these ideas journals do not have to be one thing. They also do not have to be one person only. This is my number nine two person journaling or group journaling Abacha dynamic. This is a journal where people take turns writing the entries. There's a few things. I love about this. I think that sometimes writing things down is easier than speaking them out loud. This can be hard things can be loving things. Feuded journal that you passed back and forth with someone where you could express some of those hard to say things, maybe that would be a new way to communicate. I could see this happening in marriage or maybe between parent and a teen. I think this could be a fun project between a group of friends that are all long distance. If they were sharing. Journal the shipped around passed around in ideal that could be really really meaningful. Number ten the last thing. I thought of why was brainstorming for this episode is really the only method that I have actually zero experience in. But I want to mention it because we live in an age where this is a reality. And because I think it might appeal to certain people in certain situations, and that is video journaling files naturally gifted at this, and I would be all in. But when this point is not my skill set. And I don't think I'm gonna learn it, however video journaling like a big trip or a project or something like that could be really special video journaling may you while you're pregnant if you wanted to give it as a gift to someone some day, although that'd be journaling without just be videoing. I'm not sure it could be done. Really cool not just us consumption for others. But for the very reasons that we keep any other kind of journal I've learned about myself in the last few years that. Even though I've always wanted to be a writer. I'm very much a verbal processor to talking to others even talking on the vox or app, which I do every day with friends I often have to talk things out before. I know exactly how I feel. So even if you were just talking to yourself on video or even if you were just talking to yourself on an app like FOX, which lets you send voice messages to yourself. This be a real alternative? If for some reason, you can't write or type right now, I'm thinking of a friend who has chronic illness. And I wonder if she would want to video or voice memo as a way of journaling. These are my many many thoughts on journaling. Can you tell that? I impacted about it when I told you guys all these episodes to take these topics to your journal. I really do mean it I really am hoping that these prompts will give you something to write about and explore within yourself while I always value our relationships and conversations with others. And I personally always have Tim things to tell you the most important understanding, we should have is with ourselves so sharing of ourself to ourself it can be a task sometimes. But in the big picture, it's worth it. If you are ready journal, or or this episode inspired you to pick up a journal for the first time in a while these do share it with me on social media using the hashtag, Tim things to tell you or tagging me ten things value. I'm so curious to see how other people do it. Also, if you liked this episode or any of my episodes, please take a moment to share it with a friend or leave us a review, and I to these reviews this word of mouth sharing. It is the best way to introduce ten things to tell you to others. I'm Laura Tremaine. And you've just listened to the ten things to tell you podcast.

"Nobody has respect women than i do. Nobody hillary clinton wants to abolish it but lately she wants to abolish our second amendment back. Victory didn't deny it. I don't think anybody denied it. Other presidents did not call could write letters at some presidents. Do anything many people have. Come out and said i'm right. You really do have to ask yourself. Where does it stop. Hello and welcome to fallacious trump. The podcast where we use the insane ramblings of the man who killed democracy to explain nautical fallacies on your host. Jim alarm you're either host mark. A logical fallacy is an error in reasoning that results in bedroom invalid arguments logical fallacy. We're looking at this week is the promised proof fallacy. I say we. I'm going to have to leave you. In the capable hands of jim flying solo with the help of one or two others have gotten used to you. Kind of way for the next several episodes. The work i'm currently doing means they'll be a conflict of policies in doing this especially at the moment. But i'll be back to join in the fun again when this period is over. Meanwhile then hand you back over the gym to explain promised proof so every now and again on this podcast. We talk about the back. Informal fallacies are informal both because of their form. And so sometimes just. Because you don't have to be specific person. You don't have to be a tenured philosopher or anything like that to to identify a fallacy and to give it a name. Fantasies are really is a resume reasoning as we say every time and try that happens so frequently that they give it a name and when something comes up time and time again in arguments or in an attempt to provide evidence of backup for argument or a statement that you saying and we see it's time again sometimes we like to give a name here on the show and this is another one of those instances. This is one. The i've called promised proof. It's not a fantasy that you'll find in existing lists until presumably some time in the future where people start making lists and they refer back to shows like this and think okay. That's one and they added to that list. So i look forward to that happening and when we finally get cited in some kind of philosophy paper journal anyway promised proof is where someone instead of offering proof to back up their argument they tell you that the pre will come they tell you the proof is just around the corner you'll see it And then often it doesn't show up. As in many cases with infomer- fantasies this is a waste fallacious. When someone does sometimes they will genuinely saying no proof. I will show it to you and then they do show it to you and it's something that is either. They don't show you for legal reasons that moment possibly it's going through the peer review process in a gentle but where it's used to deflect an argument or a requirement full you tobacco royal saying. It's just the same basically as offering something like a non sequitur the deflects distracts from the point. That is requiring to be made will requiring the person making the statement to to give an answer tobacco. Whether saying it's a way of saying let's move on. You'll see the proof it'll come now. This is something that trump does from time to time and example is from when the atlantic article came out of bounds trump. Cooling soldiers loses suckers basically. They said that that was why he didn't go to the The military cemetry when he was in france and he claimed at the time that it was because of the weather and when he was asked after the atlantic article came out. He reiterated that claim. He said this. As far as that day i mean we have so much proof as to going to the we went to paris and the environment and i was all set to go. They had a rainstorm. The likes of which you rarely see. The fog was so great it was. It was as dense. As i've ever seen and i almost new that you couldn't use the helicopter and because they had a drive through i guess certain parts of paris The secret service. Who by the way. We have people here that were on the trip. They're writing a report unable to even think about it. And i said nope i wanna go. I insist on going. It would have taken us forever. The paris police said please. You can't do this. Have to shutdown various parts of paris and it just was not a possible situation. The helicopter would have been very quick. They had the helicopter all set but the helicopter could never fly and that kind of weather so and that turned out. And that's all documented by the way we have all of the information from and probably will release that information so he's making specific claims that he's saying that it was the whether it was rain. Storms like you've never seen folk like he's never seen and the helicopter simply couldn't fly in that weather and the police in paris couldn't shut off the roads for him to get there by car but he really really wants to go in this proof that they will release at some point. They oversee didn't release any. They couldn't release any proof because that wasn't true in fact his reasonably easy to prove the opposite because their records cats of weather and i mean the publicly available records you can go to a website called time and date dot com and put in any city and any day. If you look up paris on the tenth of november two thousand eighteen. It says it was light rain. There was no folk that day. There was no heavy rainstorms. There was earlier in the week of the previous week. Rather it's is just not true and it's probably not true and and the proof that he suggesting he could give you at some point. Obviously isn't available doesn't exist the find. The all of the other world leaders made it to the cemetery on the same day. They will staying around paris. Ooh you know in other locations and they made it because it was a slight drizzle that day. That's why so he's offering proof that will appear at some point but obviously doesn't actually have that. He's been doing this for a long time. Obviously he was doing before he was elected. When he spoke to anderson cooper he made a claim that or he he had previously claimed that mexico were deliberately sending their criminals to the us rather than putting them in prison in mexico. An ensign cooper asked what his pref- was of this telling me that one illegal immigrant wouldn't have a slip of paper or something that would indicate that he was sent with an essay. I think it's common sense. Mexico doesn't want a house somebody for thirty years in prison when the united states will do saying everybody knows this is this is the case. I think there'd be a lot of people. There's the smart people. Don't i think the streetwise people's guards now while you're gonna find out if i have evidence i'm not telling you now but you're gonna find out what again anderson cooper's asking repeatedly and this is where this gets used frequently is where people ask for proof if you make a statement in someone says okay. Do you have evidence of that. And the person doesn't have evidence soviet and they say you'll see i. I will have evidence of it or something like that. The evidence will come then than that's a red flag that this is happening and in this case he saying we'll see we'll we'll find out if it's true they did. They never did find out if it was true. There was never any evidence that mexico was giving criminals. The right to move into the us That that hasn't happened. No evidence has come forward of that and no proof has been offered by the white house or by trump any point. The likely reason for that is it isn't true there's never been any reason other than trump saying it to ever believe it was true. It's not just trump. the does this obviously In fact just this week following the i mean terrorist attack on the on the capital which we will discuss later. One of the colours to c. Span was one of the people to know that i sort least to try and blame it on antifa and he was asked free. I don't promote what happened but obviously n. t for terrorists are not gonna show up in trump shirts with trump hats and trump flags. You know i am not show how. They're representing. They went in there with a plan a very precise plan and they accomplished what they wanted. And but what prifti have that. Oh it'll come out it'll come out. It is being. it's only a couple of hours. it will be. It will be clearly coming out obviously this. This caller has no evidence to back up the idea that that it was actually antifa people. Lots of evidence has come out since the sixth of january to show the these people who were often on camera with no mosques Smiling cameras often using their own phones to livestream staff often giving their own names to reporters who they talk to. And there's a lot of evidence that those people were trump supporters cue in on believers regular faces at trump rallies. That has been no evidence to to show that they are at any of them. Were antifa not alone. Even just a small group of them that is actually another fallacy. That's a sequel the impostor fallacy. We will come back to that another time. We will talk about that a more detail when he suggests that actually it's The thing that people you like when they did something bad. I actually wasn't them it was pretending to be. Then it's bizarre thing but it comes up frequently and we will talk about it and other times but in this walked josh was saying was when he was specifically asked for proof by the lady span was out of the pre full. Come out. it'll come out. He'd he has no more evidence for that than tobacco will he saying already. There's no reason to believe that evidence will come out for something. You don't already have evidence full. If if you're basing you'll believe in it on evidence then you already have evidence for it. By definition it may be true to say that something that you have evidence for more more evidence will come out in the future to to make it more robust. It may be that in the future. More evidence will come out on the other side that will make you doubt the evidence you currently believe. Either one of those two things could happen. What you can't say. Is this thing. Which i believe without evidence will be backed up by evidence in the future. So doing that if you try and do that. And you make that argument you're using a fallacy and now is the time i think marks british politics so marcus. Give me an example from boris. The go-to person for making promises and then failing to deliver either on the promised thing all the evidence on which he based his promise of course the the prime news cycle surfing ex journalist minister because he is covered in the snake oil he sells. It's very difficult to get. Hold of an example of him promising any proof For example to back up his assertion that leaving the eu will provide three hundred and fifty million pounds a week for the nhs and when squeezed he slips from your grasp and proclaims innocence by referring you back to the weasel words he employed to allow himself to shelter behind plausible deniability sepoys making claims that he can rick lance of later on he he tries to avoid this happening like in september. Two thousand eighteen when he said as and when the cash becomes available and it weren't until we leave the nhl should be at the very top of the list In fact even someone like nigel. Farage said immediately after the vote came through when people said okay. Calm is the nhc going to get that three hundred and fifty million pounds a week. Even nigel farage said well. That was not something we said we were going to do. It was just something we said could be done with that money. But but boris hasn't done that he's he's remained slippery and has said the. Nhl should be at the top of the list for any spare money. We have basically oversee where we're now two weeks out of the in the uk and And they money yet for the nhs so we'll see. So the nearest we get to bore submitting. That evidence even exists promising that he has an. If we'd seen it we would agree that he's right. Is this clip from commons liaison committee from the twenty seventh. May twenty twenty Meg hillier is asking about boris's response to dominic cummings the allegations that made them out. Donate cummings before you were with him for six hours to see the evidence to prove that guy. I want to get into mistress. A simple question. Did you see the evidence. I want to get into a much more than i've said. Did you see the evidence. I will if you say yes i did. I don't want to date one. That's fine privacy. So the evidence. Would you agree that it would be good idea for the cabinet secretary to see that to be published and then this problem might be off your table. Well i think actually that it would not be doing my job if i were to shuffle. This problem into the hands of officials. Who believe me meg as i think the public would one looking flash is to do with akron of. I think everybody's had the great political interested in this. I'm not certain the I understand that can be know. I took the understand public indignation. I take you understand that. But i do think this As i understand things. And i've said said about the whole business. I think it would be much better if we could not move on on the next steps so he is when pressed accepting there is evidence that he has seen the evidence but he's not prepared to give it to anyone else he's not prepared to pass it onto the people who who arguably could use it to do their job because that would be some kind of abdication of his responsibility in some way So yeah in this clip. He's basically saying yes. There is evidence. The is what. I'm basing my decision on. But no you can't see the evidence. So as mark says boris's statements all contain an inherent not somebody of incontrovertible evidence but his attitude of vacuous positive boost. Tourism relieves him of any sense of the to provide evidence during the covid response dresses. This up. as following the science wheels out chief medical officer chris witty to be the embodiment of current evidence to justify decisions made too late but never shows the supportive evidences to why the decision to go to three or four was better than full lockdown wimax community testing isn't government policy but only something that is encouraged by individuals. He never provides proof the things all will will get better makes promises providing that proof because there isn't any or it's unsupportable or not science driven rather it's just policy politics rule. That's the problem. He simply doesn't think he has to be accountable to anyone. He wants to play it being the king without taking any responsibility for serving his subjects. He's never watched spiderman so one more clip pair. I'm well again. This is an example of promised. Pref- exactly this is a british comedian called jonathan pie. Who his stick is the he's a news reporter and he rants at the camera wall like inbetween making his doing his actual pieces to camera because while he's waiting for the for the vp to run or whatever he has a a bit of rent his cameraman and This is what he said about. Boris his whole christmas and new year covert response. Boris his entire covert response from start to finish has been a tragedy of indecision is like a low rent hamlet three days before he cancelled christmas. Boris was talking about how important. It was not to cancel christmas then. He cancelled christmas on sunday. He told andrew maher that we're fucked but still waits another thirty six hours to lock town. He also told all that he had no doubt that schools are safe and then proves it by closing them. Forty eight hours later. Walk earth shatteringly. New information on monday night that he didn't have on sunday morning. Why send kids to school for one day. One day if it's too dangerous to open them on tuesday. It was too dangerous to the on monday. These mixed messages they breed mistrust which in turn breeds resentment which in turn brings people to go out. Fuck it all right. Got enough of this bollocks on going out onto the streets to cough on some old people dead only just way law suites lives Too donny voters gets soon. Just you wait and see fairly with the white cliffs of dover. Well i was not expecting to him because they better than now is a twenty twenty one treat for all of us so in the fallacy in the world. We like to talk about fantasy the week from a non-political perspective and this week i clip comes from The wonderful murder she wrote. This is an episode. Where jessica fletcher is helping an old friend of hers. hang on. that's every episode in this case. The old friend is a A police lieutenant who is working a suicide case or an apparent suicide case that he actually believes his murder and He has trouble breathing it so he is asked eventually by his superiors to give a press conference saying that. It was all the evidence so far points to suicide. And here's how that went. Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen read you. The statement following several days of indent investigation. There is no clear evidence. That gretchen threads dead suicide at this point. In time i think questions now lieutenant what does at this point in time mean. It means now to suggest that there could be proof at some later time that this wasn't a suicide i certainly hope so. So the lieutenant here is. He's being shaky the we believe because this is murder she wrote suicide. She right that there was a matter here. We we know who did it. Basically but He doesn't have proof he doesn't have the evidence that he needs to arrest the guy at the moment So in this press conference he's basically promising by you. Know by leering the reporters into asking the question about what he means when he says at this point in time he's going around his bosses and and getting the opportunity to say there will be some proof Which in the context of the show who is fair enough because again we know that it really was meta but in reality is is how you can do. Things is how you can make your argument that you know. i'm. I'm pretty sure. I just don't have any proof yet but saying everything that we know at the moment points to suicide an employ or state outright that that you will get proof that it was actually met my second example. We comes from okc ashley. He's pointed me towards this. And this is a pasta cool jack. Hobbs who spoke at the proximity conference in april twenty twenty. This is the hour to shine the light. Like we've never had before things are so messed up giddy up. Let's go things are so crazy. Yes reveling in the insanity of it. All what i am saying his jesus said when you see these things begin to happen. Look for your redemption draws near. This is an amazing time. So just you wait and see if jesus doesn't come back today. Just wait and see what he does tomorrow. Wait and see what he does on monday. Are you with me. Just wait and see what he does. This year of twenty twenty. Yeah i think we can all agree. Twenty twenty Didn't fight any evidence. The jesus was coming back Unless unless you consider it to be the beginning of tribulations it's possible but anyway yeah. This is a common thing done with religious types and other folks who want you to believe that something is going to happen and you can keep looking if if you if you make a rule where there isn't a set date then yeah if it doesn't happen today it'll happen tomorrow. Just keep waiting just waiting. Say it'll keep half it'll happen. It'll happen the proof that you have invested your your time your money your faith in the right gold. The right church will come to you. It will be proven to you if you can. Just be patient and wait long enough and without any end eight. That is just something that can keep going and they can keep people coming back to the judge and keep telling the same thing because people can continue to believe without seeing any evidence so long as they promised that that proof not evidence will come at some later date even in cases where you all give an end date like some of the end time prophets Who actually say State will be the end of the world and then it doesn't happen and everyone goes. Oh that's weird and some people will continue to believe because they'll just change it and say. Oh yeah we got slightly wrong. It's actually the state two years in the future. Should keep believing what i say in. Continue to give me. Money somehow doesn't convince everyone that what they were doing was all a big waste on site now you now before we move onto fake news this week. I just want to address a question that some of you may have an an annoy on some of you may have it because some people have asked me it and that is in two weeks time by the time of all next. Episode trump will no longer be an office Here knows possibly by the time you hear this trump in office So what what are we going to do. What is fallacious trump going to continue. How can we can send you if there's no if there's trump in the white house well the answer is absolutely. We're gonna continue. We have no plans to change anything that we're doing at the moment. Frankly even though trump is not going to be in the white house. I don't think he's going anywhere anytime soon. I don't think he's going to be out of the public ally. I think he will continue to be very vocal. I think he will be complaining about biden. The fact that he's no longer on twitter makes a bit of a difference. I don't know way he's going to be going instead. But i'm sure he'll still have an outlet whether it's on cable news or or even fox will somewhere also if he starts trump news network because they've been threatening oviously still at this point in unless he gets impeached a possibility that he will run again for twenty twenty four. If he doesn't. I wouldn't be surprised to see. Don't junior running. Twenty twenty four. It is vitally important that that coined of thing doesn't happen Or at least they are not successful in that attempt. And so we're going to keep doing exactly what we're doing. We have plenty of material to work with to keep this podcast going for a long time. We're gonna keep bringing you the news of what's going on what the republicans are doing what the democrats are doing if they do stuff. That's bad and what's going on with trump where he will follow the impeachment trial. If there is one we will follow the new york taxes trial if there is one and whatever information it comes out the hype fully ultimately leads with at least one of the trump's guy to prison who knows will be there so we're not going anywhere. I'm not going anywhere. Mock will absolutely. I promise you be back soon. You any have a little bit longer to wait. It's not be the next couple of episodes but he will be back soon. Inflation trump is is continuing. If a miracle happens and somehow we we stop hearing anything about trump and he just fades into the background. Maybe he heads off to russia and stay silent until something like that. And and charlie cut goes away and all of the trump children. Go away if something happens then. We'll we'll look at whether to kind of move in another direction. But i don't see any reason that we're going to have any less to talk about frankly Once trump is out of office. So join us next time and keep joining us. Because we're not going anywhere so we're gonna we're gonna play fake news folks. I love the game. It's a great game. I understand the game as well as anybody as well as anybody. Yes it's time for fake news. The game where. I read out three trump quits which arena. When i made up this week. Frank has to figure out which one is fake news. Welcome back frank. Thanks for having me again. I'm so excited mona. Actually this time. It's been it's been an eventful couple of weeks. Over christmas new specially just the last few days of seemed like a couple of weeks in themselves but but this these quite That i'm talking about here. The theme is all from the The last rally the trump well possibly will ever give but certainly has given. It was the the woman in georgia the night before georgia runoff election and He went there essentially to to talk about cutting la and david pu. The joe is didn't end up to him very much statement number one. I'm no hands talk about me. I'm here to talk about your great senate candidates and frankly. I shouldn't have to do to even tell you this but i will enjoy very strongly. I want georgia by thousands of flights and it wasn't even close. There's all kinds of pref- a lot that you haven't even seen and it's not just georgia and if you'll governor wasn't one of the dumbest governors in the country. He wouldn't have let it happen. God he's just doesn't give a crap anymore just like you governors rubbish rubbish guinness so statement number two. We've seen what our opponents of capable of doing iran to elections. I won't bite them second one much more successful than the first. But we can't let this happen any longer on election night. We leading by so much. We don't want to have that tomorrow. We don't want to have that tomorrow night. Way or leading and then all of a sudden boom is gone like magic. Okay and then statement number three gallup gallop you know. The gallup poll This bragging bradley the most of my mind in the world will the country. I didn't say. I say it for different reasons so i came in i i. Bum came in second and biden came in way low. Then i say and they say and people have said how is it possible that a guy who got eighteen million votes can't get any votes for the most admired man you know why because he didn't come in us. That's why one just makes no sense. Brilliant omega mus okay. Well these are very close in my mind. The last one undoubtful of because it's it's so nuts. But i think he's so dependent this point the just saying the most of mine mine in the world i feel like is probably true. But it's who's even talking about here too easy talking about biden myself himself shortly okay. Well let's begin with number one I the beginning with him being very supportive about the quite too great senate candidate and then later cooling. The governor dumb is very on browned But then i wonder if you would just really good at this by now. Which all goodness me well simone more successful than the past. But we can't let this happen any longer being successful. Is that what we can't help. I'm gonna go with number. Two is probably real. 'cause i can hear him say like magic very clearly in my head feeling. That's the one that's incorrect. Though we are and i'm gonna go with number one also being real because i think it's quite funny so i'm gonna go. I already have immediately regretted my decision. But i'm gonna go with number. Three is made out one. Okay so of the other two which you more convinced by Can neither of them. I'm gonna go with number one number one okay. Number one is fake news not sorry. Oh it's brilliant fantastic. Say that Yeah he did he. He did call. the governor of georgia dome in fact a quote in one of the dumbest governors in the country. But but not quite in that context. And no it wasn't he didn't quite do such a clear. Unhinged talk about your candidate knows me and then talk about himself quite as much but But essentially that was the theme of the whole speech was on his talk about your sinuses. His stuff about me but enough about me. What you think about me That kind of thing so yeah. Unfortunately that was not something he said but he did say number two. We have all seen what our opponents are capable of doing iran to elections. I won both of them. Second one much more successful than the but we can't let this happen any longer on election night. We were leading by so much. We're not gonna have that tomorrow. We're not gonna have that tomorrow night. Where you leading and then all of a sudden boom. It's god like magic famous wins. I just i just this okay. So throughout my s- of his presidency always like is he nuts. All is this who is actually you know. Is it an act. Or is it but often mitch mcconnell and The vice president were like yeah. There was no fraud my guy and he still continued to be like. You're very special. Let's destroy democracy as we know it in this country. Wow i read a thing and it was like The reason why he he doesn't want to leave offices because he would lose his immunity to prosecution once he well. Yes essentially i think so. I mean he's just a boom griffin as well and all the time that he can be saying we need to raise money to fight this. He can be getting donations into his political action committee that he sets up which he doesn't have to use for that he can use that money to pay off his own personal legal fees and essentially pay himself a salary from his pack in. This is kind of Kathleen checked where that money goes will comes from so i mean basically a lot of the stuff that he's been doing has just been to get more money from his supporters is kind of diabolically genius in the hanaway. Yeah they we are so Yeah i mean obviously that is you know he. He rented actions. He did than not much less successful than i in a way. It was most successful because he got more votes but more more people than african american history visit against incomes. I think he must've just rent that. He got the most votes of any republican ever and then stopped reading any news report beyond that. And a he say number three gallup gallop you know the gallup poll they did. I don't. I don't say this bragging. The most admired man in the world or the country. Say i say for different so i came in i. Obama came in second and biden came in way. Then i say and they say and people have said how is it possible that a guy who got eighty million votes can't get any votes for the most admired man you know why because he didn't come in first. That's why it's just if i'm ever on again. I'm just the most outlandish one. It will just be true. That's how i'm gonna vote next time. I thought when. I was like this much contradiction here. It must be just overdone. But if it's just seekonk right this kind of stuff. It's so knots. So he's he he did win gallup gallop poll every year. They ask people and it's a completely open question that it's not multiple choice. They say you know rights in the name of the person in the world that you admire the most the who do One under women's and he this year for the first time 'cause old throughout his presidency bomb has been winning and this year he won but the thing is he still go. Eighteen percent of people saying that he's the most admired person. And and barack obama still fifteen percents even though he hasn't been president for four years and the reason that trump won basically is because old republicans. It seems Wrote donald trump whereas the democrat vote was split between obama biden antony found sheep bernie sanders an and various other people because there were so many other people that democrats thing yeah that i really admire them this year that essentially kind of let trump rise to the top of of small pool. But yeah i mean the thing is normally an incoming president would be Up at the top they would be high on that and biden. Did any at six percent of the bite site is lower than usual but Posted that is because people still a mario bava so much really. Yeah if it was like if it was a full multiple choice at the between him. And i of for instance against biden sap clearly if it was between trump and biden biden. Go after a much larger number of people in thinking he should be president. So it's funny as well in a bragging about this poll versus the actual election is just quite funny. Also it's like you know when time does person of the year. They've not to be crossed. But they have put hitler on the front and i just think these sorts of art. Just think so interesting. the Well no interesting predictable and maui terrifying He's bragging about this. Despite clearly not having won the election he he knew that right at this point the he hadn't won. Yeah yes this is. Yeah i suppose. Clutch destroys the say lately. Have the opportunity to talk about it. yeah so. Unfortunately that means that you didn't win this time. It's to be expected but this was an amount. God really enjoyed this. I'm sure. I said it lost time but yeah this one was really tricky. So it's time for the show this week at least is called sedition is not a knowledgeable fallacy because when we think about what we're gonna talk about in this section a few days ago. I was thinking that probably be talking about with the results of the georgia runoff elections. And then i will on saturday that maybe i'd be talking about the the kind of treasonous. Cool trump may to gioja secretary of state. Brad reference burger about wanting to get eleven thousand seven hundred eighteen votes. And what can you fellas. But then the sick happened and Democracy crumbled and a grief of trump's supporters that would riled up and incited by well several members of the trump family including donald and giuliani and others To essentially assault the temple of democracy in the us the us capitol. So that was the thing Yes in the in. The morning of the sixth there was a rally in dc which had been going on on kind of right wing social media for awhile on paula and on various other things about saying that stuff was going to happen. There was a chesser online about Plans full possibly attacking the capital. That has come out since that they were people talking about you know. Won't they do once they get in there and even talking about burning it down and that kind of thing which makes the the response from the law enforcement on six laughably inadequate frankly clay. They claimed that there was no way of knowing. This was going to happen. And i mean even just watching trump's speech where he was saying right. You know i will go with you. We're all now going to march down. Pennsylvania avenue capital and to say that that was unpredictable. What is ridiculous. I mean when i was watching the live broadcast and i believe it was the head of police or or something. don't security pops in in washington She said well the other rally had planning permission. this one didn't so there was no way we could have nine that and therefore known to You know allocate resources accordingly and then later on when she was asked about the violent reaction to the protests her only answer with they didn't have permission to hold the rallies that they held and yet storming the capital. Sadly wasn't has the kind of thing you apply for planning with the machines. Bull run is so the the the difference in response. I mean it was absolutely stop. You couldn't you couldn't look at what was going on without thinking about lafayette square six months ago and Having peaceful protesters who were chanting kneeling. cleared answer lafayette square with tegas. And and kind of police with with riot shields whacking people and yet although there were some Police in some capital police in and people like that kind of fighting back and pushing back on on some of the people who are trying to get in that will russo lots of images of police just standing by and letting people go past and no engaging uneven in one case taking selfies with the riotous tease. I saw some footage of the one woman who he was. Show the footage leading up to it. Their armed police not with them mosques or anything you know and they were just standing at the back of the crowd just so magazine about not not speaking to another not speaking to the protesters. Just nothing and i was like. Oh the these militants who just happen to bulletproof vest the say police on them. I was really perplexed. Deny this. there's a lotta talk oviously about whether the some of the police were complicit. This there was a video that went round suggesting the police actually kind of moved the barriers aside to let the rights through ole thus nor substantiated. And even looking at that video pretty closely. It's really difficult to see. Who's actually moving the barriers. But this there's not a lot of pushback in and i can to some extent understand if this like twelve of you and five hundred people coming at you unite. This is only going to be a set amount of pushing back. The the can be done in his even worth doing and yes they should have had more people that they should have more people than they should have Got more reinforcement salak quicker than they did. We still don't have the full story about what happens. Ofter people to break in but the national guard was not deployed trump said in his statement the following day on on video that he deployed the national guard immediately. He absolutely did not only did he know do that. But the have been various reports that the national guard were delayed in dc. From from going there either deliberately he refused to deploy them The there have been reports from the washington post that the pentagon stopped the dc national guard from getting equipment. Ammo and things like that so that they couldn't go. The national guard from from neighboring states were eventually deployed and it was hours between The the essentially you know the government building being breached by armed and reinforcements showing up to do something about it. Yeah Even in the first few hours of of the The cuff you didn't seem like anything was happening. Yeah the coffee seemed to be the widdly. The thing that made the biggest difference it was it was soon off to that came in that a were able to start getting people out of the capitol building and down the steps into at least that holding area but there were very few arrests made on the day. There have now been more. Arrests made a lot of the biggest viral photos. Like the guy. For example. He was stealing. The speaker's podium an kind of smiling for the camera he's been arrested now. The guy who broke into nancy pelosi's office put his feet up on on her. Dad's can wrote a note saying we will not back down. I think it was an possibly. He's resigned stop iran. Yeah possibly yes this. There's been this been conflicting reports of various points We do know that. Obviously a lot of people got into places they shouldn't have been You know mike. Pence was was kind of rushed to safety from from the building Journalists and congress people were taken to the basement and kind of kept in a secure area Because that will people in that crowd least two who were according to. A lot of revolts promising violence. They will. That wasn't chumps that they would. They wanted to hang mike pence. There was me there. Were people who had brought zip ties. Full arguably the main reason for For bringing zip ties the kind of flex cuffs. In the way that they were presented was would be to to take people essentially hostage. Yeah it reminds me of that. Was that interview. They were interviewing the crowd and there was a man who said a comparable. What news channel it was. He said he was a mexican immigrant. He trump and he said something like freedom is is bought with blood or something just sunk terrifying to hear. That was yeah. They were people with megaphones crowd. Kind of egging each other owners. Saying if you're afraid of confrontation dan going further with with going in now and there was a guy who Even off the trump Well trump's kind of milk toast Video that he put out. That was saying okay. Thanks very much. We love you very special. Now go home. even off. that people weren't going home. there was a guy who was. Who was there with a megaphone saying kay now now we need to attack the journalists basically. Jesus christ yeah. Obviously there were some deaths There was a as you mentioned. A a woman shot trying to to make her way through window that had been breached into a secure area. It reminds me of older fotos. Reminded me of the the london ryan's sit thousand eleven. When will the posted to in a twitter war Having stolen five kita bags of multi rice an and then ended up in jail What i find interesting is that trump had previously signed an executive order. Tim make damaging Federal property like the punishment. Ten years minimum prison Yeah i mean that won't translate plain music at when he announced that the executive i see no no basically the law already says if you damage. Kind of memorials all federal buildings. It's actually ten year. Maximum sentence i see and won't trump did when he when he put outline. Executive order was said Judges should prosecute undoing. This louise essentially we should. We should uphold the law about these things. I'm was the greatest didn't change anything. Yeah but i think it would be really interesting to see whether because i think a lot of lawmakers especially under this government have been hesitant to make examples of white nationalist terrorists but i think it will be interesting to see here now whether they use them as an example and imprisonment to to the maximum extent of the mole because of the threat to democracy Rather than you know their actions us as white national or rather in a domestic terrorists in general i wonder if they'll ignore the association with with trump and just go on the basis of it was an attack on capitol hill if that makes sense. Yeah well i think one thing is that even some sentences have been completely pro-trump the whole time have have moved away from these people and have called them a at least they call them rioters thugs and things like that. Obviously the democrats saw quite rightly quoting them. Domestic terrorists think thug is such an important word for them to be using because ever since the clinton administration suck has been used quite publicly by government officials to describe young. Black men were young bright. he'll so i thought it was really interesting to hear commentators. Republican commentators use the went out. Can i thought that was. That was an interesting An important thing to to pick up on your absolutely but the fact that they have spoken negatively about them and an have started to move away from trump and and even a couple of cabinet members. Elaine chao who is secretary of transportation Mitch mcconnell's wife. She's resigned from the cabin and betsy devos. Secretary of education has resigned. Obviously far too fucking metal fawzi bucket. Quite that's how. I feel about the whole twitter thing as well. Then yes yes Yes so the other the other thing. Which is brilliant is that he has been banned for life from twitter Full for in because of the risk of inciting violence which is absolutely what he's been doing for four years including this attack on the capital was simultaneously incredibly shocking and no tool surprising absolutely disappointed. But not surprised is the phrase that come. Yeah and also probably not the last. We'll see of this kind of thing. Even in in the coming days that there is already talk of something else happening on the seventeenth. Even which is before the inauguration and almost inevitably something happening on inauguration day likely the fbi and the the national guard and the dc fleece will be ready for stuff happening They have also been trump supporters. at State houses around the country Kind of croix testing and trying to gain entry and have gained entry in some places including i think oregon and obviously that has been the lesson the news because of the national stuff going on with dc. But this isn't going away quickly even with trump finally coming out and saying that you know this is bad actually kind of reading a prepared statement like a like a hostage but yeah on on the right wing sites Some people are saying you know. We've we've done everything for him. We've even the capital and now he's just completely threatened to sue under the bus but unequal number of people seem to be saying yet. That's no even him. That's a deepfake. He wouldn't say that he wouldn't he wouldn't bounce at the pressure in that way. He's too strong for that kind of thing. God this of it is amazingly delusional defiant. That even off the The capital gold breached. Ivanka trump was putting out a tweet kind of kind of condemning these people but but started out by calling them american patriots. An and saying they had to be peaceful go The defied that they all seen in any way it at least within that group but also by by trump and his followers as patriots. It's stunning that. They have managed to redefine patriot in a way that includes people who who tried to take over the workings of congress and take down the us flag and replace it with a trump flag. More quiet. I suppose to to to to look at that in cola. Patriotic is just. I mean some jap- bank would reading of any kind of logic or semantics will american white deal or anything. But i mean it's amazing know. Trump is quintessentially american and so to them in indeed. Patriotism looks like this I always found while. I think most non americans do the. I don't want to say why shipping but the pedestal in which the constitution is is placed on on the patriots in that americans feel quite fascinating oversee. They're all going to be ongoing implications and consequences from this and not only for the the the writers themselves terrorists who who only universally thanks to the fight. They are also anti mask with very visible in lots and lots of pictures and so reasonably easy to track down the fbi. Put up a lots of pictures of people and ask for help. Identifying people in have immediately received lots and lots of help and Yeah and even. I mean people. People giving their the names and kind of state to news organizations that were interviewing them outside the capital. And they i mean derek evans who. He's a west virginia members of the state house of delegates. He was there an and breaching the capital and he was live streaming and was he said as they got in basically within about ten seconds. He said yeah. Derek evans is in this in the congress. And like if you're gonna do if you livestream at least don't use your name when you. That's just fucking stupid so he's been arrested but the yeah the fi. The so many of these people are so stupid and think that they have this right to do. It means that they are quite easy to try. Track down so they will be a lot of charges For those people and hopefully a lot of go to jail for a long time and there are likely to be consequences of at least some kind even for trump and at the moment. We're still waiting to hear what those consequences will be. There was talk early on about the possibility of invoking the twenty fifth amendment. That doesn't seem likely now but democrats have been Putting together articles of impeachment and that is something that could be voted on as early as next week and i. It might seem about unnecessary because he's only got twelve days. Left less that now Day to stolen the capital. So yeah i mean this one of the advantages if nothing else means that they can vote that he can no longer hold any office. Yeah If they if they choose to convict so that would stop him from being able to run again in two hundred twenty four which is absolutely us doing Went obviously stop. Don't julia all ivanka. Or don't forbid eric from getting involved in politics. But i think it's worth absolutely westering and not only that Incredibly important as a precedent to say that this is the kind of behavior that you just cannot do in isn't acceptable even if it doesn't have any other effect even if he's already out of office by the time this as a kind of hearing on it and a vote it's important as close as it was the last time he was impeached to say. This kind of behavior is unacceptable. And finally somethings. We really don't have time to talk about sadly eclipsed by the shitty news. This week was the best news we've had for. Longtime democrats won both georgia's senate runoff elections handing control of the senate to the democrats and allowing the biden administration to actually get shit done. Apart from the excellent work by stacey. Abrams and others to get out the vote in the excellent campaigning. For most often warnock we have to thank the republicans for this because without continuing to cast doubts on the integrity of the democratic process focusing almost entirely on whining about the election results instead of campaigning for perdue knopfler without mcconnell spending the few weeks depriving people of desperately needed money without lynnwood telling republicans not to vote and without offering perdue being hateful solis bigoted literal crooks. It might not have happened. I don't know about you. But i like to see new year in the big celebration this year. Being somewhat different the prospect of spending that evening say an unsuccessful presidential candidate might have been the cherry on the xmas pie certainly those stumped up for the new year's bash amara longer were expecting if no promise that trump in his mrs would be there with them on a cpa spreads inexplicably however there is to bail to washington on wednesday and left them with greasy team. Don jr. other miscellaneous trump offspring and the drippings spread himself rudy. Giuliani never fair to help. Try to prevent bias. Remorse from kicking in to seeing they will also serenaded by one hit wonders. Vanilla ice and berlin perhaps over persuading them to party like it was nineteen eighty-seven and they were actually still in back to the future. T. when biff all the money go the go and was still the king and they went in sad fake times white. Pensioners retirement home abandoned by the proprietor. He has more about the cash than the adulation. now he cares has about their relation. Just know about being close. They musculus pokes field breath as exhale all over him actually nine hundred dollars. A poll represents pretty good value. Who now don't want to pay that amount not to be in. The same room is him over. Sixty court loss is nothing. If you're a master deal maker really determined to subvert the american people so trump called georgia secretary of state brad. Reference beg last week and spent an hour trying to get him to break the law to help trump out. Fortunately for us a member of reference beggars team recorded the call and when trump lied one more time on twitter about the integrity of the state selection process. They sent an according to the washington. Post anyone looking for a master class in negotiation. From one of the world's most successful businessmen might have chosen in the past to attend trump university. But since that sadly been forced to close because of all the fraud this phone call will have to suffice. Not why you can still learn key skills like lying If we could just go over some of the numbers. I think it's pretty clear that we won. We won very substantially georgia suggesting what to say when you break the law. Nothing wrong with saying that. You know that you re calculated awkwardly. Flattering the lawyer. I'm here you're a good lawyer. Have a nice last name threatening your opponent prosecution. You know what they did. And you're not reporting that. That's that's a criminal that's a criminal offense and and you know you can't let that happen. That's that's a big risk to you and to ryan your lawyer desperately begging for help when you have nothing left to offer. Now what are we going to do that. But i only need eleven thousand votes palace. I need eleven thousand bucks. Give me a break. When you're white privilege elected republican senator. Is it possible for anyone to take your words about hit or out of context especially when the context is about not losing future actions by winning the hearts and minds of the young in the ways of republicanism. And the what's all hitler was right on one thing he said. Whoever has the youth house the future office tried to twist the woods and to make into denunciation of evil dictators efforts to re educate young people and similar efforts by left radicals downstate illinois representative. Mary miller went on to say that people were twisting her words to mean something antithetical to my beliefs. Then why not use a reference to those left wing radicals the russian communist party and the young pioneers who was schooled along party. Lines shouted isn't even more onto that school to be seen to be knowledgeable about what socialism really which might turn off a fellow electoral college. Object or her husband who attended the rally at which the insurgent in chief incited people who death have the hammer and sickle tattooed on that chests to start the electoral vote counting. Apparently we need to ensure that young republicans To realize that that is something west than mentioning it as well. As trump's lifetime ban from twitter a number of other right wing voices have also been banned such attorney in crazy person. Sydney pal and attorney in crazy person l. lynnwood would is going from passing the usual trump supporting q. On believing bullshit to some conspiracy theories that are causing us some genuine concern here at fallacious trump. because there's a point where it's okay to laugh at people and then there's a point where you wonder whether anyone around him can get him the help he so obviously needs and mr woods is fucking right there on the board of those two points. So i'll leave it up to your conscience whether you find it funny. That would claim last week. That supreme court chief justice john roberts is a pedophile who is involved in the death of antonin. Scalia and the jeffrey epstein is still alive. it's good to know trump's lawsuits in such good hands. I'm costing black five. There's a pharmacist in this one. You know agents k. j. Meet with an innocent looking person. Who has the inside track on into status go hungry. What's his backstory. You'd want to start with the words. Self-declared conspiracy theorist right because that the really weird ones know enough to have someone else declared up to them they say about themselves doubly 'cause they have the knowledge the what they believe those off the beam out there s nations with things makes people have a rational explanation for. Let's face it. The plot of every men in black film really any wet. Because we all go ha pretending this. We'd is israel we know it isn't as such a except okay this pharmacist israel a self-declared conspiracy theorists who destroyed five hundred doses of the kovac. Seen on christmas day. I his hospital pharmacy in grafton missouri. Because they would have mutate. The dna of the patients will quite right to thank the lord for people like steve brandenburg. 'cause blimey five hundred meters but zero chance of being mutants and now zero chance of being immunized would have really impacted the lives of those around the much much more than the twenty one million. Us citizens infected with and the three hundred fifty thousand who've been killed by covid nineteen. Yeah good way. Steve his the power agent k blues. Your head off again. Aforementioned crazy person. Sydney powell is one of the crazy. People that voting machine company dominion getting ready to sue for defamation and while i love to see i can't help thinking she's going to get off on the chuckles defense that no right minded person. We'll take anything she says seriously. Meanwhile dominion has been sending out negation. Hold letters to make sure. The evidence is saved including one to really stall witness in comedy drunk person. Melissa karoon which said you have positioned yourself as a prominent leader of the ongoing misinformation campaign by pretending to have some sort of inside knowledge regarding dominion's business activities when in reality you hired through a staffing agency for one day to clean glass on machines and complete other menial tasks which is kind of amazing. Aaron the uk. We have adopted a new three. Paul slogan will say that we've actually returned to the simple rigour of stay at home protect the nhs save lives because the virus still exists and so does the government and the fulmer has much more control the latter than vice versa. After reflecting on the success call a boris's in net cabal of shit munches the needs three. Paul phrase in reality is donna suggests boris rejects stage implements. Boris utans a tissue. a tissue. We will get blamed.

Trace my eligibilities for antipodean. Possible till next time then she'll be right no worries so that's all about arguments in faulty reasoning. We have time for this week. I'd like to thank my guest presents. A frank you can find the show notes that fallacious trump dot com and if you hear trump say something stupid one to ask if it's a fallacy upon contact page if you think we've used the phone co celt last night and if you had a good time please give us her view on apple podcasts stitch four and you can show a patron dot com slash trump.

Publishing & Politics: How Science Gets Made

"Have you loud and clear? I can say Physics Medicine Nature Brain the universe. Hello welcome to the naked scientists. The show where we bring you the latest breakthroughs in science technology and medicine with Chris. Smith and me Phil Sansom. This week we're going back to the basics of how science itself works Watsa a scientific paper. What Peer Review Win? Boris Johnson. Says he's following the science. What does that actually mean? Plus in the news is the. Uk's new Cova nineteen tracing APP. Secure the doctors that didn't know they'd be infected with corona virus. And should we really be bailing out the airlines the naked scientists podcast is powered by UK? Fast DOT CO DOT UK. I up here in the UK. We've had mixed messages from the government about the easing of lockdown and we've also seen a seeming increase in the spread of the corona virus. Chris as of religious who's been following all of this closely. What's been going on? The big news is that we've had the announcement of an approved test. This is an antibody test unlike the current Genetic tests that. We've been doing to tell where the people have the virus right now. This is going to be a breakthrough because what it will enable us to do is to work out how many people have already been exposed to the virus. Many people are therefore immune and how many people remain susceptible. We think at the moment somewhere around about ten to twelve percent at most. But we don't know for sure this will help to narrow that other. Big News includes the fact that there are plans in place in the UK for Children's return to score next month. Of course this is a degree of uncertainty. People are quite worried about this because they're concerned about whether or not this will be safe for these children. Many people are trying to reassure them by saying well you know. Young children are the lowest risk of all groups of developing severe disease with this that said we have seen headlines about a new condition called Kawasaki Disease. Not a new condition but newly associated with corona virus. An appears to be cropping up more commonly in Young Children. This is an inflammatory condition where individuals are affected at a very high temperature. Sore is red mouth fingers and toes and swollen glands and they can also get some heart problems vascular problems. It's very rare phenomenon but they have been some cases reported in association with Corona Virus Infection. So people are actively pursuing that. So that's another one to watch the moment. Meanwhile there's the NHS's mobile phone APP designed to tackle cove in nineteen which is currently being tested on the isle of White and will soon be rolled out nationwide. Now it's job is to track down. Everyone an infected person has been in contact with and it's part of this wider approach to test that Christina's fat testing but tests trace and isolate infected individuals. So they don't spread the disease. Now this so-called contact tracing is an old idea that normally involves interviews and questionnaires. The APP on the other hand is for catching connections. That these older methods would've missed like strangers on a bus but the happened some questions about privacy for the people who are going to be using it. So Phil Last Security Engineer Greg. Pool to explain how it works when you're using the you don't need to do anything in the background though. Your phone is seeing if any other devices appear over. Bluetooth an flirt devices running the show. Ill Exchange little handshake. A No keep a record of nothing will happen with I. O stay on the phone and in twenty one days time it will disappear and be deleted off your phone if somebody later reports symptoms. Start to feel unwell. You Can Click a button and upload to the H. S A list of the people you know the device is that you would contact with. The APP allows the chest to get an idea of whether this is likely to be true claim. A symptoms that a false claim of symptoms by someone you know just having a laugh about br example based on if they've been exposed but then they can actually allow the people that they've been in contact with a not could allow you to get people say to them. Look you might be exposed. You should self isolate on an in two or three days time. They might experience symptoms. Don't you need everyone apt though you need to have the OP? Research suggests the sixty percent of the population. You'll start to get some game. You're never going to get everyone to install it. But that's okay because you're still going to have regular procedures of contact. Tracing people following distancing measures. They'll be washing their hands but the idea is to augment that process. How does this compare to other countries are trying like this cova safe at that Australia been using? So there's two. General approaches are being taken to how these APPs developed at the moment those the centralized and the decentralized model Australia's cope it's safe is using the UK's approach the centralized model. What's the difference between that and decentralized? Some countries are looking at building. Decentralized ops a life European countries are addressed these kind of work almost in the reverse minor of the. Uk's approaches the UK focuses on someone who's infected sending a list of people they were near to a central server run by the any chest in the decentralized model. Everybody Keep Celeste of the devices that they see and if someone gets infected more everyone else has to do is luke through their record for devices. They've been around and see if any of the infected once are devices if be close to in both cases you don't send anything to the Health Service sever unless you've been affected can make a comparison see if I understand it. Is it like you've got to give the police in Alibi for something? The centralized version. Is You saying well? I saw this person this person this person and they can verify that I'm fine whereas the decentralized version is going okay well I was wearing a green hat and a red jumper and so people would have seen that so you can ask people if they saw someone with a green hat and a red jumper. That's a pretty good analogy than the decentralized model to tell everybody what happened within the centralized one. You tell the chess what happened and they can go in people as needed to someone who's not a software guy that seems like a small distinction. It seems a small distinction from the privacy perspective. The distinction here is quite important. A lot of people feel the privacy of the decentralized system is better. I think they're often overlooking. Is that even in the decentralized system? They are actually revealing this information. And if you create a list of people who have been infected. There's a lot of privacy concerns that especially when that list is being circulated to impropriety as virtue of design with any chest to. Don't do that what you do. Is You privately? Notify the NHS H. S. notify someone. There's no big lest anyone could look at to see who's been infected any country that's looking to build. The decentralized model will end up having such a less a of countries are looking at the apple. Google approach an approach there firmly pushing for one but it seems like people are worried rather than about everyone having their information. Maybe like a big company. Having the list of where you've been you've been in contact with sure so the first thing that's important to note with both these approaches the smallest list of where people have been. There's no indication data gathered location data being stored no location data being sent anywhere now with regard to who people have been in contact with. Were not talking about names and addresses. Were not talking about phone. Numbers what we're talking. If I is run the numbers that are linked that that there is actually. It's not possible to go and look who that is and the chairman anything based on Greg. Are you going to get the APP or did I not? You've already downloaded it. So for the purpose of the research downloaded. How'd you find it? It's very simple straightforward. There's there's not really much to to be on if you had to give it a a Greg. Poll privacy rating out of ten. What would it be? I think cam for the Sop Republican looking somewhere the NATO ten. There you go greg. Whole Mobile Networks and security engineer at the University of Strathclyde giving his rating on the NHS covenant. Contact tracing APP on quite looking for it to downloading and having to go myself this week now when I'm not actually broadcasting about covert ninety. My Day job is actually on the front line of Rolla. Gist Adam Brooks hospital in Cambridge and hospitals really matter in this equation because they could end up being hot spots for corona virus spread. Which was the thinking behind? Study into? How many Adam Brooks staff of being infected now putting it mildly? It is quite worrying because it turned out that quite a few have been coming to work without realizing they've been infected with and carrying the corona virus. The results come from Cambridge University. Microbiologist Steve Baker and Infectious Diseases Consultant Mike Weeks. He's obviously huge issue because staff within the hospital could transmit information to other staff and to patients and actually hospitals could become their own individual hubs of transmission. Unless we do something about it staff where PPA throughout the woods but hopefully people don't wear PP and staffroom sitting where people when the to lunch. 'cause you can and so. There's the possibility that the virus could transmit we got infectious disease team to visit different wards around the hospital intake swaps from people's throats nose so that they could go to these lab. We see if they as you head grain of ours. You get these samples from all over the hospital. How many samples did you get to the moment? I think we've screened about two and a half to three thousand individuals in the hospital. How long does this take the whole process? From the point that we can receive swabs to week can report back. The quickest. We've done. It is about four hours usually report Becker result within twenty four hours and Mike. You've looked to the staff members. What did you find? It's really interesting? We actually found that three. In one hundred people at g tested positive for grinders anti these people split into three groups. The first is people who have no symptoms at all and so they just have no idea they have the universe. The second is a group of people who've had mild symptoms like a bit of a Coffee Sore Throat. Some of even lost their sense of smell and they don't think they have enough symptoms to warrant doing anything. About in general the final group we found actually had had corona virus a long time ago and they'd had fever and prolonged cough the typical symptoms and they'd appropriately self isolated at home and then come back to work when they were well. You can still test positive even though you shouldn't be infectious the fact that these people are not reporting symptoms is worrying. Isn't it because we're relying on symptoms to detect? Who we think might have it in society. You're quite right. Unfortunately this is one of the features of Corona viruses. Some people just have no symptoms and some people symptoms of so minor. They just don't think they should do anything about it. But we're really encouraging staff now to come and see us so they can get tested if they have any symptoms. Hospitals are seeking to control this by dividing the hospital up into areas. That are read. They have patients in them with corona virus. As a diagnosis confirmed. There are also areas of the hospital which are regarded as green. Those people don't have corona vars if you look at the staff who work in those different areas are there any differences in the likelihood that they've got grown of arse infection because of being exposed more in red areas to catch it more. We did actually find a significant difference between red and green areas in Red Areas. A greater proportion of staff actually do have corona virus overall. But in my be because staff getting from patients who might be staffer getting from staff or it might even be that we'd sampled more of the red areas bitter earlier. We saw it over the causes three weeks but as everyone been on lockdown there were fewer and few cases in the community. We can't make any firm conclusions from this but what we can definitely say that this needs to be studied a lot more. What if your ask by the hospital right? What do we do that these findings? What are your vice points test test test and test again because with kind of approaches we can imply in the community like these contact tracing APPs on. Iphones won't necessarily working hospitals because so many people have contact with other people really important stuff might weeks and before him Steve Baker. They're both at Adam Brooks hospital.

Either Higginbotham has been speaking to Richard Black from the think tank called the energy and climate intelligence unit. It seems that the lockdown on the airline industry is going to carry on for months and the impact will probably felt for years to be honest oversee for those airlines. They have a choice. Stay behind the clothes or shut down some of their operations or they seek some kind of economic relief. Bailout call it what you will. And that's what most of them are already doing. Within Europe Airlines collectively asked for well over ten billion pounds and one can expect those amounts to carry on going up. I think isn't that kind of propping up. An industry that we know has negative consequences considering the emissions that we have from travel and comet change. Yes I mean. If you look across all sources of carbon emissions aviation emissions arising among the fastest of any anything we do basically and ways to solve this through technology on immediately obvious in aviation this really difficult to see how those emissions can be brought down anywhere near two zero in the thirty years that scientists tell us it would be wise to bring emissions dance zero. Does it seem likely that the airlines are going to be bailed out by the government. Yes I think it's inevitable airlines will be bailed out so then the question is really will governments put any conditions on those bailouts F. France the National French carrier. They're going to have to solve the emissions from travel within France by twenty twenty four just four years. Now that can't be done by technology so it does mean that. Air France will actually be reducing the number of flights. It makes within France because France has a very good train network. And so this talk for example. Well ANY JOURNEY. That could be done in two and a half hours. You just won't be able to fly that route at Franz. Sorry let's the shelf is example yet. We have a government that is putting environmental conditions on the airline bailout. What other bailout conditions could government set? I put this question to Brian. O'callaghan a researcher from the University of Oxford's Smith School for enterprise and the environment as green conditions could include reaching net zero carbon emissions by twenty fifty. They could include intermediate targets like reaching thirty percent. Sustainable fuels by twenty thirty five or a whole host of other green type. Conditions Governments can set environmentally friendly conditional bailouts. But how do we make sure that the airline will actually follow through with the commitment? The way you do that is by creating a negative result from failure to abide by the conditions for example if you're unable to make a five year possible target. The government is able to say in exchange for the money that we gave you. We're taking of your company and giving that half of the company to taxpayers. What that would mean is that existing shareholders and existing executive suddenly have their current shareholdings cut in half Chris significant financial incentive for them to stick to the conditions which the government stipulate classic example of carrot-and-stick. Then we'll give you some money now say a company doesn't go bust but if you break your green promises we're going to take ownership of some of your company now back to Richard Black. Climate change is still going to be a problem. Once we've come out at the end of Corona virus. Why would you put loads of is what's essentially public money? Our money tax payers into industries. That are going to carry on emitting carbon dioxide which will therefore create serious problems in the future with climate change. I think there are two ways of philosophically looking by now one is that you simply try to go back to business as usual. The other is that you actually anticipate the future and you look at where economic trends are going and you try and build industries. That will have a strong survival. They'll be sustainable in the future. Because then you're helping where the market is going anyway and he'll building industries that will be sustainable in the future so. I think to rationale for doing this. One is purely economic and looking to the industries of the future. And the other is if you can basically meet your climate change goals at the same time as rebuilding the economy. Why wouldn't you do that? Richard Black from the energy and climate intelligence unit and before him. Brian O'Callaghan from Oxford University. Talking about bailing out the airlines with green conditions. Now let's return indoors because for many of us that's where we're spending our days at the moment using the Internet to communicate with the outside world. Conversations have gone virtual lie than ever have before children or attending virtual school. Many of us are working from home and attending relentless video meetings. And almost everyone regardless of whether you're still in work on not is using video calls to keep in touch with friends and family. So what do we actually know about? How a virtual chat compares to a face to face one Katie. Hayler spoke to social neuroscientist Antonio Hamilton From University College London. If you're in a live video cool one to one. It's pretty similar to wear face to face conversation how you I'm movements physiological responses behaved but then there's other aspects where it's much much harder being a video core. I'm looking at an object to a piece of paper and wanted me to share that with the person on the other screen is much trickier and I got started with thinking about camera angles and turning things land. Having video calls with multiple. Reaper is much harder. Because you don't know who's going to speak next and you're losing track of WHO's where and just the quality of the communication differ. It probably does but it's hard to pin down the exact ways in which it does and I think it depends on the kind of conversation you're trying to have. When's our next meeting and what's happening on this event something that's probably going to be just as effective in either context whereas if it's a difficult conversation as highly personal compensation is probably going to have a much bigger impact on the quality when we last spoke. You mentioned you just about to start a study. On virtual conversations we create a virtual person. We'll have a conversation with you. We can have two different. Virtual people one of them nods in the way that we think is natural and at another virtual person may just do some sort of head movement. Baby that isn't related to compensation that pretty preliminary results. Bart's data suggested you like the character. More effect at character shows natural head movement. Behavior there nodding in time with you then nodding in response to the things saying I just noticed. I've been nodding along to you despite the fact that we've turned the Webcam off so you can't you can't see them. I'm not long but there we go. Yes somebody I'm not sure if it was you at somebody in Radio. Who said that radio? People do a lot of nodding when they're doing an interview behind glass and they were the other person to keep talking. I definitely find virtual communication more taxing than face to face. Why is it so tiring you're not getting these choose automatically and so you're having to make a bit more effort to remember that. There's another person that they can see you often. You're seeing yourself on the camera which is really distracting. And so you're of having to work bit harder with all of these aspects of engagement. Come ask you about differences in social behaviors. Because I think some people they move quite a bit more in conversations and indeed some people find it quite difficult to communicate socially. Do you think that has implications for the pretty intense time? We're now I think it probably does. Who ISN'T NUDITY UNHAPPY? Pooping with everything having to switch to virtual compensations working with children with autism interacting with them over Webcam interfaces and some of the autistic children seem to engage quite well with that because they have less anxiety when we listen to visible person but they'll still engaged with the past the camera but other people find they really want much more physical session to action and not the Webcam. Skype conversation doesn't leave you at the end of that same feeling of French. It may be that you would have from actually having a pint in a pub with a real friend. Do you have any communication tips during this time? When virtual communication is just so much more frequent I guess the main thing is to have a bit more patience with other people with the technology. Certainly if it's a group called it's very worthwhile. Establishing lose at the beginning of this is to organize things some of these bits of software. Have things where you can click a button. Just clap for heart or smile or a thumbs up or something like that and we can see in the context things like text messages. How emojis of now you know become this enormous world of different things because people want ways to communicate without having to put everything. Words encourage people to use option to chat the option to put some emojis because all of these types of back really really useful in home stations. And that's again one of the things that we often lose when we go virtual so we can do it but it does take more accurate. It takes more patients and it's going to take breaks and get away from the laptop as well. Sometimes here ironic that they did. She turned off the Webcam when they were doing an interview. All about video conferencing was anyway. Thanks very much to Antonio Hamilton. And she did mention her. Study results are preliminary. They haven't yet been published or undergone peer review. But that doesn't mean the screen breaks a Rennie less important and finally this working from home. It's all very well in theory. But how scientists being adapting to life without their laps. We're exploring some of their weird and wonderful home setups on our show and this week. Here's how one physicist has been scratching his scientific itch. Hi My name's Ben mcallister. I'm an experimental physicist and like many of you. I'm currently working from home. What does an experimental physicists? Do at home. You might ask well so far. I've investigated the gravitational and mechanical properties of my cat. I've constructed a helpful robot from scrap materials and household rubbish. And like many of you. I've been conducting thorough experiments in fluid mechanics. I want to make it clear to my funding buddies that that was all a joke in all seriousness. I can actually get quite a bit of my real research done from home. My work primarily focuses on the detection of dark matter. Which is this invisible stuff that makes up five six of all the matter in the universe and which we have almost no idea what it is fortunately for me my ability to work from home one of the things we do know about. Documenta is that it's all around us passing through the Earth and through you'll very body right now as you hear this we just see touch feel it. So I've captured little JAR OF DOC. Meta here script my kitchen and I've been studying its properties for my living room. Oh okay so believe it or not. I actually do that at home. All of our fancy machines and equipment which we use to try and detect the duck. Meta down in the lab on the other side of town but thanks to the magic of the Internet. I can control and operate a lot of those machines remotely and continue working detecting that pesky invisible stuff myself or only in the lab from time to time to do a little bit of maintenance or swap out of component so that we can continue to operate the machines remotely but we minimize the number of people in there. And it's a big lab so we can easily maintain a safe social distance. And of course I can do a lot of the other jobs. I have to like Dada analysis experimental simulations and writing up experiments from the comfort of my object without bothering the cat any further. Oh God the robots back. Thanks very much the very sadly late Ben. Mcallister they're dark matter. Physicists at the University of Western Australia the naked scientists podcast is produced in association with Spitfire Cost Effective Voice Internet and the Ip Engineering Services Fleet UK businesses. Find out how Spitfire can impel. Your company had Spitfire Dot Coach UK. You're listening to the naked scientists. It's May Chris. Smith AM PHIL SANSOM. And this week on the show we will be driven not by. Mere hope economic necessity. We're going to be driven by the science the data and public health now here in the UK. The government's frequent mantra is that they are guided by the Science and scientific papers and studies are frequently making the top news stories. Most of the time but for many people this is a totally foreign landscape and some of the words that are being used are very much a foreign language so we want to go back down to basics. What is a scientific paper and where they published? Who's checking to make sure they're accurate and when a government like the UK's claims to be following the science. What's going on behind the scenes first up? We need to explain terms if you've listened to any shows before or even if you just listen to the first half of this one you'll have heard. Words like paper Journal appear reviewed being tossed around these make up the process by which almost all science is published for the world to see that process is relatively recent one in our history and it's changed a lot over the past century or to Melinda Baldwin is an historian at the American Institute of Physics and she researches these changes. She took me through them. So a scientific journal is a publication that publishes articles revealing new research results. There are a lot of different kinds of scientific journals so for example of nature which is one of the most prestigious journals in the world today tends to publish short articles from every discipline but many scientific journals today published much longer articles and published in a very narrow discipline is this how science is always sort of been published. It's not for much of the early. History of scientific publishing. Scientific results could be published in a lot of different types of formats so for example Charles Darwin's on the origin of species. That's a book you also see Men of Science publishing their findings in pamphlets in encyclopedias occasionally. A NEWSPAPER ARTICLES. Why did journals then become sort of the thing? During the nineteenth century science as a whole became a much more stable career path in the early nineteenth century oftentimes especially in the English speaking world. People who wanted to pursue scientific research had to do it as sort of their after hours hobby either that or they had to be independently wealthy so they would have enough money to support themselves. But during the nineteenth century science becomes a much more stable and respectable career paths and what that means for publishing is that scientists no longer have to worry about selling their scientific findings to an audience outside of other scientists and so the Journal is a place where you're writing by and for other scientific. Researchers Science articles today are they. They obviously vary but generally. They're really hard to read. Yes absolutely if you go back to an earlier. Issue of nature one published in. Let's say eighteen seventy just about anyone could have read most of the articles by nineteen hundred. It's completely different. And then by the twentieth century you have articles that are so detailed and so specialized that not only. Can you not understand this biology article if you're not a scientist you can't understand this biology article if you're not? Biologists people describe articles peer reviewed. Is that people who do know about that? Article saying yes. That's okay yes exactly when we say something has been pure reviewed. The article has been looked at by a number of specialists. Usually one to four and that those peer reviewers have said yes. This article should be published. What was there before this refereeing was the term that was usually used starting in the eighteen thirties at the Royal Society of London Mrs Zayed started soliciting formal reports about papers that were submitted to them for publication. The idea originally was that those reports are going to be published to spark scientific debates and discussions. That doesn't really take hold. But that comes in handy when you have someone who's a member of the Royal Society but as may be written something it is a little wacky and so by having these referee records to fall back on the editor can say. Oh I'm terribly sorry. The referees said the pieces not acceptable covering their buds. Yes exactly after that. A lot of learning society journals tend to use external refereeing to evaluate their submissions commercial journals for profit journals generally don't and they don't do that well into the twentieth century. It's not until the late war that the scientific community starts to feel that something has to be peer reviewed in order to be considered scientifically legitimate. Given this is sort of now the way that people agreed yeah. That's legitimate science. Do you think that if you showed that process is someone from the nineteenth century it would just be totally unrecognizable? I think it would be unrecognizable and I think that if we showed the way we do things today to someone from the eighteen thirties or the eighteen fifties. They would probably see some problems they would say what if the paper gets sent to a competitor who wants to Sabotage what if the paper gets sent to someone who's not really an expert in your field. The fascinating thing to me about looking at the history of peer review is how much it changes over time and it's something can change again in the future Melinda Baldwin Historian of Science at the American Institute of Physics Nowadays High Ranking. Scientists are expected to volunteer a chunk of their time to review the work of other people in their field. And that's before adjourn will consider publishing the piece of work. This is the foundation of trust. That song today gets built on Bass Sturdy. Is that foundation? All their parts of that could be done and should indeed be done differently. Brian is with us from northwestern university. He researches the sociology of Science Braun. How well does Peer Review Perform today? The process of Peer Review worked very well in some ways but there's definitely room for improvement so peer review basically tries to do two things one at wants to make sure that the findings are presented and the study was done correctly with the right statistics. Us where the right inferences drawn etc. And then the other thing that review tries to do is to make sure that the result is reproducible. That it can be replicated. So that's something that is published today work for the public tomorrow for a week from now for a month from now even over an entire lifetime and how reproducible is science then if the whole process is working really well we should have really really reproducible. Papers are they. Well the issue here is is that would the that scientific papers reproduce at a rate lower than expected in psychology economics and some parts of medicine and biology learning that about sixty percent of the papers? Do not replicate goodness may so sixty percent of the science. If I take a paper off the shelf and I copy what the scientists wrote the paper did and I try to repeat their work. I get a different answer. Is that what you saying? That's precisely what I'm saying. So you use exactly the same procedures you do exactly the same experiment but maybe only change the subject in the experiment you find out that the first result was a fluke not a fact. That sounds like a disaster. Well this is one of the reasons why people are beginning to look this problem in much more detail trying to find ways in which improve the process of science so that will replicate and also trying to find ways to predict whether a paper will replicate or not before. It gets into the public domain. But do we know why this is happening. Brian has anyone I'm picked the processes leading to a paper just not working. Is it deceit on the part of scientists? They they just publishing fraudulent science or something else going on good question. Well you know. The first thing that people looked at was is this being driven by the sea. And it's very little evidence that it is your that these are honest Mistakes that are occurring in the research process itself. But you have to remember. Is You know some papers will not replicate you can't expect one hundred percent replication scientists and innovative field. You're GONNA have Experiments that end up on the cutting room floor so to speak but sixty percent is too high and currently people are trying to bring that level down by undestanding better. The research process itself and training people to learn how to make sure they ever search replicates before they submitted for peer review who culprits. Currently we can't give an answer to that because we haven't really begun to look at replication all branches of science sciences and an amazingly diverse area of study from everything from a very hard sciences. When you look at like tower station reliability all the way over to mental health. What we do know is that the areas that we have looked at so far do vary their levels of replication so psychology and Economics Medicine Samaras biology up to sixty percent of the paper appear to be failing in other areas like engineering. It appears to be lower. How you actually studying this. And I'll have to put it to you is your research reproducible. I could answer those questions now. Just joking One Way to do this is to improve procedures that scientists used make sure that their papers will replicate another way to do. It is to develop procedures that someone who is reviewing someone else's paper to know whether the paper will replicate are not my approach to that has been developed an artificial intelligence system that reads papers finds cues the papers that human beings otherwise miss when they're reviewing the paper but the AI system can tell us correlate with an accurate about whether the people will own not replicate. It works approximately eighty percent of the time but the important thing is is that for the papers that it feels most sure about because the artificial intelligence system gives you a level of confidence in its prediction for the top ten percent of its most confident papers. It's right a hundred percent of the time. So that gives you real security knowing that if you were to go to these papers and use them for whatever investment purposes would build on in future research you can be Fairly convincingly Secure that you're building on a fact not a fluke in the paper Ron. I'm one hundred percent jewel. That was really interesting and thank you very much for joining us to tell us about the word. That's Brian Nutsy from northwestern university this week. We're running a crash course on parts of the process of science itself so far we've heard how the results of a study or experiment go from private into the public domain. Now we're going to expel the big changes happening to this process because of the pandemic and there has been just this incredible boom in corona virus science. We've seen more than ten thousand peer reviewed articles on the subject since only February. Every team is rushing to publish as quickly as possible. And the quickest way to do so actually isn't a peer reviewed journal at all but rather through what's called a pre print server online platforms. That have been the subject of Global Scientific attention and frantic collaboration. Theo bloom is one of the founders of these pre print servers called MED archive. She's also executive editor of the British Medical Journal. Theo can you explain what is pre print server yes? We heard that scientists write-up results into papers to share with one another because is our collective enterprise and we all build on what everyone else has done. Before but typically the process of pair of you and preparing things for publication in a journal can take several weeks up to months and in this pandemic. We all want to know things much sooner than that now. Some scientists have always shared material with a few colleagues at the same time as they send it to a journal but with the Internet we have the ability to share with absolutely everyone and so pre print servers are a place to post that draft article that you've got ready for Journal but put it out to the rest of the world to where it can have an awful lot of people looking at it commenting and saying whether they think studies been well done and so presumably. That's been something that's used quite widely in this pandemic to study the corona virus happening. Yes so prepaid service have existed in the physical chances for tens of years and the only much more recently in the life sciences. In the last few years they've been growing in importance then met archives the clinical pre-printed of that I work with only launched last June. We wanted to be very careful about pre prince. Which could affect. How people take their medications caused. Public Health Panics. If we weren't careful and so on so we we happen to launch just a little while before the pandemic came along but really from the moments in December January when Chinese researchers were starting to see unusual cases of pneumonia and what out they came from a previously unknown virus. They have been sharing their results. And now the rest of the world to as rapidly as they can and does meant in preprinted form. What kind of scale are we talking? About how many reprints are you getting? How much in a day? For example? We've currently posted around two or three thousand preprinted Meta archive and we're seeing that missions of seventy eighty day at the moment. What's the best mode of treatment? What's the best models for? How the disease is progressing. What has worked in countries that have seen reduced rates? And so on. Theo d get oversight of what goes on to medal. So if I if I wrote a paper and it was complete bunkum could I just put it there and you would put it out or would you actually have some kind of ability to pull things. That were quite clearly misleading. There's two artists that one is that things are screened before they go up. This is not as rigorous as the peer review. We've heard about it's not about. Is it right and is it replicable? It simply is this ethical reasonable and unlikely to call Tom to individuals or the population. But even so that's a multi stage process that takes handful of days before things posted and on very rare occasions where something gets hugely criticized after it is posted it can be taken down but of course we know with you know in the Internet in general. It's very hard to remove something so we'd rather it was right before we post it rather than having to try and remove it afterwards is interesting. You raise the points about the fact there is discussion and critique because that's kind of a strength of this in the sense that researchers can almost like a preliminary run at seeing how it's almost like a testing the waters. How their papers likely to be received and they can collapsed. Tyke some of that feedback and respond to it. Some people are saying they're concerned. They when they put things into these pre print servers that someone might come along and steal their ideas and then gazump them scientifically speaking of published. The the real deal before they do by just replicating the work themselves. Certainly is that fair but one of the things about posting it publicly with a date stamp. Is that the world can see that you did it. I and I think journals are increasingly recognizing that that's an important feature. Scientists were realizing this even before the pandemic when they rely on things like showing. What work they're doing to get jobs and promotions and and grants from the funding bodies. Who from the research that being able to say look? I've done this work and completed it in January of this year even if they haven't yet got fully peer reviewed journal Article Out so in fact in some ways it does give them protection from from being scooped by someone else we've included in this program in the past number of items of things which have come from meadow archive and other pre print service. We have been pains to emphasize that this is non peer reviewed yet. The thing is is there not a danger that you will end up with things passing straight through an ending up imprint impress impasse in television radio programs and therefore disseminating the wrong message if it subsequently found that they all flawed and there hasn't been that normal editorial process that would have stopped that of the peer review process so there's a danger of misinformation proliferating off the back of these reprints? That's clearly a risk and what I would say is too old to that one is. There's an awful lot of things published in journals that turn out to be wrong and for that reason if no other most journalists and others will look for more than one claim of something before deciding that it's right. It's one of those things. We're seeing a number of different reports from different locations for example saying that people lose their sense of taste and smell when they have coronavirus infection. You know that started to come out. As as little reports of a few people in Italy a few other people in China and gradually it becomes. Actually we're seeing that everywhere and is something that can be added to track as of symptoms for example. So I would say it's always the case that a single result should probably not be relied on but it's also not location to those who are desperate to share knowledge to try and temper what they're saying with. How much can we rely on this particular finding the thank you very much for explaining how it works for us? Thea Bloom co-founder of the pre print server medal and the executive editor of the British Medical Journal. Finally it's all very well publishing science for US general public or for other scientists. But how do you get that information to our governments and political leaders here in the UK as in other countries? That process is a little mysterious involving advisory groups such as sage or the scientific advisory group for Emergencies Hughes the government's chief scientific advisor. Patrick Valance who chairs sage? What we don't give advice. Olden is precise policy decisions those decisions which ministers mistake. What we tried to do is to come down to what we think is two or three auctions. I doubt we've ever gone given a single option. We're more likely to have said here. The range of things to shed a bit more light on how this works. Is You on a basic who is a sociologist at Cambridge University? Yana can you just translate for what is country balanced saying happens then? What Patrick is saying happens there? Is that scientific adviser you groups do not come up with policies so they do not decide what the government is going to do. They provide the government with the necessary scientific basis. So with the evidence that can help guide their decisions about what is going to happen but they don't make those decisions themselves. Of course that does mean. Of course you'll then shifting the decision-making making onto people who aren't necessarily scientists. So is that not necessarily or potentially a floor in the process. If I say well give you five options. Here's what you can choose from. How do we know that the politicians then are actually going to make the right choice? Well I think that's in a manner of speaking the mother of all questions on the one hand on their a democratic system where the government is accountable to the public. This is obviously a good thing precisely because boy titians are elected so in that sense the public can hold them to scrutiny. Scientists are in fact not elected to make decisions so it is good that they shipped decision making going to politicians of course on the conditions of agency and especially public health emergencies. This bro says becomes both quicker and often less transparent than the usual so in that sense what. The government aims to do often is to claim that science is guiding these decisions often in part in order to argue that they themselves are not taking the decisions. I'm glad you brought that up because that's been very visible here isn't it? We're we're being told. The government follow the science. They're having daily press conferences where they actually wheel out there. Most senior scientists and they're saying these people will answer questions from members of the public so in some respects that does appear to be transparent in good but where they're being criticized is that when they then do make the decisions. We're being told how they're making those decisions exactly. That is one of the things that have been brought up as obvious Fulton Prices I think the other element is the government has been quite as parent about how they have come to adopt specific kinds of scientific advice because as the chief scientific advisor has said. Normally scientific advisory groups tend to inform the government in terms of what would be the outcomes of such measures but then what is the government being led by when they decide which measures to adopt is not entirely clear. Do you think that in general they might have already made up their mind and will then pick whichever one best justifies that decision I think again. Under conditions of emergency the positions are more likely to already have an idea concerning. What is it that they might want to do? And they're driven by a number of factors some of these factors concern the economies of these factors concern estimates about what is likely to win popular approval or support. There are often guided by foreign policy concerns unsold and so forth so even if they do not have a clear idea what is it they might want to. They almost always have a clearer idea about one. Things are entirely off the table or out of the question. So in that sense they are guided by their own policy preferences. Certainly what about this idea that? There's this difficulty in communicating. When you try and translate between a scientist and a policymaker. Is that something that might be making? The science go astray absolutely. I think one of the things that tend to happen in the science policy communication is that scientists tend to be very cautious about giving advice and that is in pods of course because the reality is complex and because it is usually very difficult for them to predict things with a high degree of certainty. Politicians on the other hand tend to value privilege advise that seems to give clear indicators of what outcomes of specific policy decisions are going to be so in that sense. Scientists always are on the side of caution and politicians prefer the have clear data and clear. Advise that would also give them sufficient grounds for policy making but on the other hand that will also give them sufficient reasons to say there was no other way for us to act or there was no reason for us to act differently. What things can we actually do to address some of these? This might seem like on resolve before right because on the one hand we also talking about dialogue or conversation between science and politicians about conversation should also involve public on the other hand. We are talking about extreme situations but then I think one of the ways in which this could be sold in the longer run Israeli to make the signs police nexus more transparent than work into the public. What does this mean on the One? Hand the composition of expert panels should be open. Or information about expert tunnels. Who is own them? How they make decisions. How these decisions are communicated with policymakers should be transparent on the other hand politicians also need to stop being more accountable to the public so they should come out in European and say wise it that they chose to act on certain kinds of advice and not on other kinds of advice so rather than just we've been following the science you'd like to see here's what we've actually been listening to and here's why we've made that decision exactly and I think another thing that really needs to change. Is this whole. Follow Disci- idea or concept when you look at it but it's actually signaling is we are not leading because if someone follows clearly they are also not leading so in that sense. It's a way with voiding responsibility. I think that that needs to because I think it needs to be completely clear. Thought when politicians make decisions they should be able to be held accountable. Yana basic from Cambridge University. Thank you very much and thanks to our other guests this week Melinda Baldwin. Brian Buzi and theo bloom. Certainly feel more informed myself as a result of this. Now I'm scientist now. We just got time for our question of the weekend this week either. Higginbotham has been filling out the answer to this question from that. Do all humans have the same number of nerve things on their skin and if today's vascular bigger the total fat tack have the same sensitivity of a given area skin reduced. Oh something of a touchy subject. They're now asking has lots of different types specialized sensory nerves that let the brain know what's going on anywhere on our bodies but how does that translate to actually feeling something? I put the question to. Professor Francis McLean of Liverpool. John Moores University. He's an expert in all things touchy feely. We can feel the sense of touch. Because the sensory nerves McKenna receptors on them with respond to the physical stimulus touching something or being touched. We have more densely packed. Makara sectors in the fingers and lips and less on the TORSO OR LIMBS. This can visualized penfield famous among curious. But he's a model of a human body with body parts of different sizes depending on how much of the brain is devoted to sensing that body. Paul the hand and the lips and the tongue. A very large is comparison to the arms legs and torso. Evan underscore a you on our forum had also had of Monkeys though that's a new word for me so it's thanks to mechanic receptors in our skin that we can feel the sensation of touch and the number of those nerves that you have going to a certain body part is called the innovation density of that body part. But how does this relate to size? Now if you have naturally big lips or fingers in the innovation density will scale up to fill the available space but TACTILE ACUITY. Which is your ability to detect a physical stimulus such as a gentle touch. Remain the same two. Cy shouldn't matter. So human-to-human big or small. We should all have about the same sensitivity in the same body parts. But what happens if you get bigger like through gaining muscle pregnancy? Would you still have the same level of tactile acuity as before you expanded well?

Tailoring the Bullet Journal Method

"Are you ready to manage your work and personal world better to live filling productive life. Then you've come to the right place. Productivity cast the weekly show about all things productivity here your host racing, he smith and Gustapene out with Francis. Wade and Art Gallois fix welcome back. Everybody to productivity casts a weekly show about all things personal productivity on recently Smith. And I'm Margo Wicks welcome gentlemen, and welcome to our listeners to this episode where we are going to be talking about the idea of how we tailor the bullet journal method to our own productivity systems. I've been giving this quite a lot of thought recently, and so I thought we would have an episode where we would all talk about the boom method, and how we would actually use the center system, even if we don't just kind of how we would, so that you listeners may incorporate some of the skills some of the techniques. Techniques that we have developed over time, and how we would develop them using the bullet journal method, and so what we'll do is, we'll do just a quick recap of Buju kind of aware of what it's all about and then we will we will talk about ways in which we can supplement our systems in both analog and digital, and we'll go from there, so let's let's start with. What is the bullet journal method art? Would you like to kick us off and tackle the climate top level explanation of what booth Joe is? Sure at the highest level Joe Is really the brainchild of German by name writer. Carol, the Journal method is originally started as an analog approach to keeping track of notes, tasks, activities and Basically keeping everything once spot focused around month activity in day activity, but it is designed to be extremely simple and extremely adaptable. It's one of those things that there isn't a lot of predefined structures templates there are now in the marketplace could so popular, but it had at its most basic off each day. You're keeping track of the notes that you have from the day tasks, activities all within just a couple of pages of a paper journal, and then continuing to build that over time it's it's a definite understatement of. What's involved in the system, but at its most basic I would say that bullet journaling happens to be one of the few systems that somebody could pick up and start to do within about a half hour. One of the things that for me. It's really really interesting about the bullet. Journal is that it requires zero knowledge about productivity. Things. Do Find in other systems is that you need to at least understand the basics of productivity? The bullet journal came a solution for people who have zero knowledge. If people have Ciro Knowledge of productivity, organization or any of those things they can come read. The book read the Basic. Before the book was even a basic explanation and start running an over complicated over time or get more sophisticated over time depending on how you want it to look at that and I think that was one of the biggest strength that the bullet journal bring us for many people, the introduction to productivity on on a current world where we have a gap between I don't know anything about productivity or I, an expert in productivity, a big gap between those two and writer, really, explains Bullet Journal. Journal method as a as basically a ven diagram on one side you have productivity practices, and on the other side you have mindfulness, and when where the ven diagram overlaps two circles, as they merged together, and they overlap that central part is what he considers. The Bull Journal method, and he calls this intention -ality the idea of of taking kind of the essential model from Greg McCowan and saying what are the vital. What are the vital things in my life? That needs to get done and. tracking those and maintaining those so that I'm able to focus and then to attend to the specific actions focused on the goals and then attend to the specific actions that are necessary to move those important things forward in my life, and so that's the that's the bullet journal kind. Of Nutshell, it's a it is an analog system that writer Carol developed because he had some some attentional deficits, and maybe he is, he was diagnosed with Adhd I. I can't remember specifically from the book, but I believe he was diagnosed with Adhd and he was feeling the stigma of it and didn't know why he wasn't able to get things done, and this Bhutto method was. Derived from his frustrations, his trial and error from all of this I will I will say that from my perspective. He he kind of talks about this idea that there are these productivity principles, and then on the other side of mindfulness and or practice of of of the bullet journal method I tend to disagree with that. I think there are there are the traditional classical Greek per components, theory, practice, and performance, and so there's kind of like A. Actually three circles in that ven diagram, and so those three overlapping circles. The centre part then becomes what he's talking about. Perhaps of intentionally I would call it focus, and that's a that's an important. Thing to keep in mind here is that? I think that there is there is learning. Productivity Principles. As Cousteau said. I think to a great extent people who come to the Bull Journal method can just implement the tool and get going and not necessarily have to have a background in productivity. Principles to begin with although I would argue that we all have some level of it from being. Productive members of society. Have, you got to adulthood. You probably have some level of stuff going on the thing. That's really Nice about the bullet journal method is it's one of the few methods I found. That lends itself to the digital digitally resistant. If I want WanNa tag them this that when I look at and talk to people who are like look I don't want anything complicated I want these online things. I don't want to try and tack track tasks on my phone. This is a perfect bridge type of solution for them. In many cases, they can be the end all solution for them. Honestly I've done this very thing with my eighty two year old mother, who needed a way to keep track of what was going on in her needs set was not only the amount of information she was keeping track of, but also keeping track of it over time, and being able to go back and reference her concern was being able to remember things and. This is the type of tool, not just bullet journaling, but in this specific case that lends itself to that kind of capture, process and report methodology of being able to pull stuff back when you need it without panicking of where did I put it? Where did it go? How do I find that information out great? So what I'd like to do is just very quickly for our listeners. Give of ages very very brief overview of how you would set up the bullet journal system in an analog environment that is open up a notebook and then create a bullet journal method now. We covered this in a prior episode. I'll put a link to that in the show notes, and but I just one. I want people to get kind of a sense of just the very basics of this art. Do you WanNa? Do you WanNa, try and tackle that I can get started. Then continue what he wanted to do. Why don't you start? Because I haven't feeling? Years will be closer to the actual writer. Carol one because I use a very highly customized implementation of it from my own shirt. Absolutely so when when we when we come to the idea of the bullet, General Self, you need an essence at notebook, pen and paper, and so the notebook should obviously have pages in it and up the whole goal behind it is to identify a what he calls vital. Is it vital? kind of a flow chart at this effect, and if it's vital than you keep it in, that gets tracked in the bull. Journal, if it's not vital, then it Gets another set of questions does it matter and I mean another set of questions? It gets another question, and that question is. Does it matter yes, and again that also goes into the bullet journal? If it's no, then it goes into the trash, and so the idea here is that you then create a series of. Of notes that that are tracked within the pages of this new book. The, the notebook itself is identified with several different key kind of sections, the index and in the index. Carol put used to locate your content. End You have your topics in page numbers to jump to think of it as a table of contents for the device, and you have the future log. The future log are those things that our future tasks and events that are not this month. It's everything beyond this month gets put into the future log the monthly log the monthly log. Ben Provides overview of both events and tasks for the current this month, and it also functions as kind of journal for you in in some way, shape or form for the month, so it's Kinda who he calls a monthly mental inventory, and then finally We have the daily log, and the daily log serves as. Kind of the inbox in the GT methodologies Lingo, but your inbox for capturing your thoughts throughout the day, which then ultimately get clarified an organized in the bullet journal itself, and he calls this rapid logging and a rapid logging uses a symbolic a set of symbols to their. You know a signify Sorry. Yeah, he's a signifier. Senescence to basically annotate. To annotate the the various thoughts you're capturing within your daily log, so as rapid logging is the idea of capturing these things down, and quickly than annotating them or signifying them with the item that they are so something can be a note, which a dash a zero or go before it is a is a a small circle as an event, a dot is a task. Task Hence, the Bullet Journal, the other than you can x that dot out in that task that's been completed. You can then create a greater than sign task that's migrated. It's happening in the future. It's getting pushed forward, and then a less than sign out of the DOT becomes tasks that is scheduled when that has moved into your into your into your event based on space. And there there are other kinds of things that are part of it, but really those are the very basics that you need to know in order to in essence, start rapid logging, and in essence you will you know, create your index. Create your daily log, and then you number the page and you can just start bullet journaling. Right from there that did I. Did I capture all the essence? Essential pieces are what what parts did. I Miss I think he hit them all I. Think one of the side effects of trying to describe it verbally though is, it sounds far more complex than it actually winds up being an implementation. Bullet journaling is one of those things that truly a picture is worth a thousand words it's it's not as complicated as fourteen sections and notebooks and things like. The process starts to flow together very quickly. Once you see it all down on paper, so and the good part is that for our listeners I have put links to some tutorials and videos. All about this in the show notes so please go check them out. I've embedded videos in the episode page, so you should be able to watch a couple of minutes. Worth of the video art said you will then very quickly understand what we're talking about here and get up to speed, and so this brings us then to really the crux of our conversation today, which is how do we manifest this in and outside of the bullet? Journal. That is I am a g deer, and I have always thought. Wow, this bullet journal method this Buju. Concept is a global worldwide phenomenon. This has got to be something that I can adapt adopted my own system, and then crash and burn crash and burn crash and burn. I realize that it's a little bit more difficult to take something that is an analogue system and more fit into what I've already created in my own world, which is a very hyper digital environment, a platform, ecosystem, and so I wanted to hear from you all. How just like you know? Ideation here how you would take this Buddha concept and use it in your own world whether that be also a paper based system or an analog system, or whether it be in digital, and I have my own thoughts, but I'm I'm curious to put it out there Augusta. Do you WanNa? Start with kind of how you would use Budo in your own world, and then we'll go to art, and then I'll I'll take it home I will. I will have started with that and I. I will start saying that you know obviously when you guys talk about paper I have been running from paper for many years and I. I need a weird thing because he's a love hate relationship. There is something I really like about Brown I have tried to buy from the cheap paper to the really expensive one and trying to make it work that way, but the problem is one. My handwriting awful, a No I'm not interested in improving on to i. can index stuff so. As the paper is start coming I. Start growing and growing. I can't find a stuff that it is freely really frustrating for me, so that's where. The system for paper didn't work so I on the IPAD There is an application called good notes that it even has a basic understanding of what the. Book Joe Is What the Bullet Journal method is and allows me to use Apple Pencil, so I can do my awfully handwriting, but also do. index in. That! I used to get them and then can them and put them into evernote mostly because evernote will do a decent pretty good. OCR optical character recognition, and then allows me to look back, but there, but he was never that quick said that never allows me to make it into my system. That said. There is a lot of things that I don't use out of the out of the out of the bullet journal. I don't bring my calendar to paper. Calendar is in digital and will stay in digital. I don't bring my list of tasks. They lived on on Omni Focus. I'm not willing to copy back and forward I may be able to to. Do you know a focus list? Hey, today I really need to get this three things. On am behind on armistice out on this idea. Only three things I'm going to look and I'm not opening on me, focused that I have done multiple times, but where I have found an incredible amount of power, our checklist and notes I. You know when I sit in meetings and I'm taking notes notes of notes of notes. It is really useful for me to be able to index and then know that I can't come back that I can look into my index. That, I can sort them so that way they are together on. I. Don't need to delete them in many cases. I don't even need to process them. Because I know where I'm going to come back I'm taking notes I'm marking stuff that is important. Reading even put them directly into the INBOX so. In many cases, JOE's having denotes. It's enough, but but it's good to have it that way, so that's my main use for the poor Joe. The other thing I do in there on I really like. Thinking okay outlining stuff, and it is also to be able to come back an even see multiple iterations or improvements of certain outlines certain process, so DOT said. I have recommend. Bullet Journal in digital as well as. Paper to some of my clients when they don't have ever been involved with you. Know with productivity before you know. When I talked to people who has been into productivity world who understand how to manage a task management will understand how to do a calendar on projects and task Gt. that. That is a different ballgame, but I have. To I have seen a lot of people who are struggling with the adult San mostly because they have never seen anything in the productivity. They came late technology so they they escape the Franklin Covey planner. Skip the beginning of the. smartphones and now have a smartphone. Who Do all this mostly because they have been forced to, but they don't have to defend the mental to. You sold that on those cases. The Bullet Journal. It's a fantastic place to reduce people from that one. Oh, one on the productivity world so So that's that's basically my my main us on I. have it in my eye, but I have it in my ipad mini synchronized on all of them, but he but in my mini it is perfect because it's the size of a union notebook, so it works really really well. For me on I still use a mix of analog and digital for this with the bullet journal because often. Yield go into a meeting or discussion, and you just have pen and paper, and you're not carrying your laptop all the time so at that point what I do is all use just the note taking part of the bullet journal concept to identify thoughts and action items, tasks that have to be addressed things that get pushed forward and then translate those into my digital system. Now I could translate those into an analog notebook, but as Gustav mentioned. There's certain things that this system just can't. Can't do it can't do calendar. Reminders can't do task management. Those types of things that you just need data to work with rather than just paper and pencil scribbles so I translate my system in two one note just because I'm able to duplicate a lot of the core structure. That's in bullet journaling inside of one. The sections I turn into months the pages I turned into days. I'm able to take notes and tag action items and and work the system as if it were paper. Now if I'm using paper and I have gone down this path a couple of times there is another way I found. That works really well. There's a system called arc notebooks Levinger also has an air sea from staples and what they are is they're based notebook system, the not discs computer, but actually little round discs, and the pages are removable, so you can go in. You can capture notes and information, and then put them into various designated sections. I found that this is one of the easy ways to get around the concern of the bullet journal system of having to pre set up. Your structure a lot of times and I see this quite a bit people. People out in the themselves a really Nice Journal, which is what I recommend I mean if you you have to like what you're doing to continue to use it but then they get into this paralysis paralysis of this journal so nice. Don't WanNA. Write anything in it or I. Don't want it to be wrong when I put something in there, and then they wound up, hung up on that little discussion point in their head, so to be able to use a system or structure that allows you to reorganize content pages that makes it a lot easier to say okay. This is in the wrong spot. I'll just move it rather than having to cross things out. Redo them. Up But from the basic mechanism. Yeah as much as I love my paper in my pens. This is the kind of thing that's still you hit that ceiling of capability very quick, and I think everyone will find that if they start to make that mental transition into the digital space. They find, they have a lot more capability. That also said there's a huge community of people out there who use one note on ipad to create bullet journals that are. Basically works of art spend huge amounts of time, customizing and tuning the visuals, and and how it lays out, and it becomes almost a hobby in and of itself up. I always say more power to him, but that's certainly not price of admission to getting into using the system, analog or digital. And you hit an important point, Daddy, it's funny. Enough has been one of the. I believe for many people, one of the biggest obstacles bullet journal and he's when you search bullet journal Ju-. find his almost piece of art. That where people have to spend significant amount of time making it pretty callers graphics, you know under digital as well as the analog world and when I show you. deb Bullet Jornal to some of the clients and they start researching under own, and then they say Oh, you don't I can do this. Why not well because I'm not artistic I will never use different colors, and sadly what you will find online. Obviously, it's not you know the plane. The plane versions what you find on your research are all these super elaborate thing. That I believe for some people. It's completely a turn off Mosley because it put doubt on. It seems to send. The tool to a different direction I don't have time to spend into making this pure pretty on it takes. More time for for for for me to explain, forget about the pretty. We want useful. We want usefulness, but it's really really hard after they have seen those pretty versions to break them from that idea and bring them back to the Plano Collor forget about trying to make drawings and I have seen more clients buying collars on rollers on. Not Getting the tool work for them because what they found online than actually use of the tool. I come at the bullet journal, a little bit different in the sense that like art I am at a I'm a hybrid I use both digital and end end paper, based or analog devices in my everyday productivity system, and we've talked about this in the past, but I'm a huge fan of the rocket notebooks they connect to evernote one drive dropbox Google drive in and whatnot, and also you can send them directly via email to places, so you can in my case I could send a task directly to. My remember the milk in inbox by registering the email as one of the icons on the last system, and this has of course revolutionized my ability to now capture in. In on paper quote unquote since I'm writing it in the ever last notebook, and then it automatically being pulled into my digital world for clarifying and organizing so from from my perspective now we have the ability to do some really powerful things. So this is how I think about it in in essence with the ever last notebook and a tool, a web automation tool like if doors happier that can actually look at the file name of the ever last document, whichever last has the ability to manifest? A Specific Organization of how you name document, so it can actually scan the first line of the document and CR that lift the text out end use that as a part of the title it can place the date and time it can put up the rocket book or the notebook page or things of that nature into the title of the the document, which then makes that the filename, and by doing that then we have a field within Zappia, if that can then be, that can be looked at and filtered for specific things so now I can say something to the effect of I could put the word tasks in two on the first line of. Page and a or say let's let's take this back to the Boudreau so what I can do now is say index and Index, and I can put future log, and then I could monthly log on different pages of the ever last notebook, and what what now can happen. Is that Zappia? Can Be looking for the though those words in the title of the document, and that's what's going to trigger it to actually send it to the right notebook within evernote for me, so that I'm able to now have an ongoing backup, the one of the one of the things that I tend to have a problem with with the with with the BUDO system general is this idea of archiving on a monthly basis, and there's a lot of back and forth with regard to all of that plus I'm a I'm a backup. A Fan and so I wanNA. Make sure that my data is being backed up on a regular basis so I won't be able to just capturing. Go without concerned that my if I lose my ever last notebook that I don't have some registered back above it, and this is this for me in theory so I can be rapid logging all day long. Snap a photograph. Photograph of of that page, and now it gets sucked into the appropriate place in my digital system for me to be able to look at and reference wherever I might go, and the beauty of that is that I can also open it up in Evernote, and then annotate that image, so I can continue writing in digital on that page if I so chose the the. The next thing that I I think would be really quite. Interesting is the idea that if you did do it in just a completely analog space than than the archival process, there's a there so there's a bullet journal method itself and writer Carol has since developed the Buju companion APP, so it's an application, a mobile application that allows you to be able to scan and archive pass notebooks again. This is for archiving for purposes of of having a kind of a look back at your journal, so to speak kind of perspective, it's for reflection. It's not really for action ability, and for me I would really like the idea of being able to go back to these things and to be able to process the into digital from the paper based system. So this is where I see some some real power here with being able to snap an image into evernote and anything that has a resident action within it then can be, then can be pulled in I'm also alive scribe user. Widespread panels to be able to digitize digitize text so I also see the opportunity here for you with your life scribe notebook, and live scribe pen writing along, and then that getting pulled into the live scribe app you turn that into text copy and paste that into your task manager, and so you can be happy. Analog and paper based in your You know in your meetings and you know. Know when you go to lunch and come back, go to a conference. You take notes, and then once you're all done in the clarifying organizing phase of your of your system, you can now you can out extract that data in live type. publ taxed directly from the live scribe APP so that's something also that I'm really interested in testing and playing with some somewhat because that gives a real. Real power to the system that converts again that paper static material into digital that then can be moved into that world especially events, so he say Oh, you know what I have to go to that place at that time and meet so and so while you can write that into your into your index, and as you rapid logging but now you can actually surface it and copied into. Into your calendar see. I think you're hitting on a key point with this, too, is that if you adopt the bullet journal system? There are really two main sections to it. There's the point where you're taking notes on a daily basis. And then there's the organizational structure around those notes within the system of because I I challenge myself with this same problem looking at it from the analog side. I have a lot of notes that I'll refer to year over year. So, what was you know? How did I do this last year? How do we do it again this year? And that kind of thing? in an analog system really doesn't lend itself to that as well. It the respect that you can store this stuff. It doesn't mean though that you have that stuff handy when you need it because you're just accumulating these books and journals, so what I typically do is I'll go through, and I use something like one drive where I will win I finish a week. Go through and just take digital photos of all the pages for that week. Week and then use those photos individually organize them within one or one note system, or within one drive to create that organizational structure around them. Yeah, it would be nice to have the bridge cross. That gap of this is what I wrote by hand now this is the text version of it I don't think it's there yet. in some respects, but not in others. But at that point, it's really not as critical because I can still have the information I wrote down by hand, and then I can supply some annotation text to go along with it to make sure that it's easy to find reference, but we still have to look at that basic mechanism. That writer has always said that you could make this system whatever you want it to be. The important thing is that you use a system to keep organized and I think this is going all the way. Way Back to the ginning. This is that type of thing that you can start small. You can start easy You could do this for a week. You can say okay I'm just GONNA. Take notes for a week using this base structure and organize each day and see how it works, and then the next week. Do the same thing, and now you have two weeks out of a month. You can start to build an index when you have time, know. Maybe you're sitting on a conference call. Put notes into the index at the back of the book. It's something that does not have to be stood up. Initially it can grow organically, and you're able to really make it scale to how you work. You just have to keep in mind. There's that upper cap again, so you're always gonNA wind up having to find additional tools to bolt onto this I would use it as my vacation productivity system and I'm and I'm interested to actually try that. The next time I go on a longer vacation because I feel like. This is the type of system that can really. Thrive in that space where there's there's complexity, but it's not the level of complexity in my day life, and so it gives me a paper based system where I can. I can manifest the Bhutto method in up in heavy May, know this, but you know there are the systems where you basically take a there are systems where you take a half by eleven sheet of paper, and you fold twice so once in half once in half again the opposite way, and so you get this little tiny kind of notebook, and in essence you could use. You can turn those sheets of paper into that you know your index future log and stone to fourth. You may not need a monthly log if you're just going on vacation, but but you can. You could manifest it right there in a little tiny. Piece of paper and have that on you and plan and map out your itinerary and quickly jot down airflow numbers, and all of that stuff in a safe space, and then for me again I could just capture an image of two sides of a piece of paper, but you know by unfolding it all and now it's a captured in evernote for for archival. Archival purposes for backup purposes so that if I lose that piece of paper is still have what I need from it. I can recreate it but it gives me the the safety of being able to say okay well I'm going to be without Internet. Access say in the middle of the Sahara and I. Hope I'm not in the middle of Sahara, but. and then and then. And then have this piece of paper. That's managing what I needed to. So I feel in these very specific instances, being very useful to me, and maybe it might be useful to you. You know what that's a. that's a great way to think about it. I hadn't thought about it that way before, but it's one of those things that you could easily stand this up in like ten minutes you could pick up one of those little like mole skin casher notebooks, the little shirt pocket size once and get a trip organized in ten fifteen minutes and use this structure. In that little notebook for your trip and when you're done, just put that on a shelf, you wind up with a couple of things one. You're right. You'll have to worry about. Is Your Tech working? Do you have connect connected? Did the battery die because you have that information there? But second, and this is more of an an old man saying this you wind up with kind of a history of that trip and that activity you can take notes of where you've been in. The places you visited, and and maybe notations I took a picture of this or I took a picture of that to go back and look for that becomes that historical record of that event that you can then go back and reference later on where you're going through and just taking tasks into a task manager. It's not gonNA, have that same depth of character for lack of a better term to what that record becomes and this then we're really talking about becoming more than just a productivity tool. This is more of a true life tool and mindfulness tool, and being in the moment, and really starting to appreciate what we're doing without having to fiddle with. This thing is not connected this time, or it's out of sync yet again. I love the idea of. Of the rotation tool, I have never thought about about getting for for for a vacation tool. Because mostly US ray mentioned my day today. Life tend to be a lot more complicated than what they. Bullet Journal will will allow me to do, and but but the idea of slowing down period, even if it's not necessarily a whole. Long Week vacation, but a long weekend where I'm going to go out, and instead of you know bringing all the technology and all the things I can cain up the system Friday. We Review so that way I am ready for everything else sounds really really appealing to me. See here's the issue that I'm going to run into after this call is now I'm going to be all inspired to go back and start doing everything as or as much as I can analog again and I'm going to waste a bunch of time switching gears. We do this to me all the time well. Thank you, so watch and I think this is one of the problems that I'm hoping that I'm not the only one who has this issue. It has that that new shiny feel, even though it's not new or shiny, but it's something that hey, maybe I can do something along this angler long that I and I have to cognitive cognitive it I have to think about this and say this is not going to solve all the problems. This is probably not even going to solve half the problem, but is it something that is going to make me happy doing it? And if the answer is yes, yeah, go ahead. Give it a shot. If I can't cohesively say that that's going to be the case. Then maybe it's not running out worth running down that path again. That said it does give me an excuse to buy another journal and vice more Penn, so that's always a good thing. So other than the vacation model where you can, you can manifest Buju in an for just specific situations, circumstantial spaces that actually came about because I I have a particular client, and that client means that I can't have my digital devices on me i. have to, you know they have to stay off site and so I. I'm onsite without that digital technology available to me, and so it forced me to have to do that and so anybody who for example if you, if you work for the federal government and you up, you know I. I spent a lot of time in Washington DC. DC and and so I am I my gt DC. Meet up is is there and a lot of my GT members they they are in that environment. Where you know you're. You're a general in a you know and you have you can't. You can't access your digital life from a from the computers at the office, and so you have to keep these two separate worlds, and your personal world may be complex, but it can't be in digital, and so or if it isn't digital, it's on your mobile phone, and it just be very very cumbersome and so having those two digital worlds can be cumbersome. Being able to disconnect them in having completely separate worlds or one is in in paper, one is in digital is actually more relieving to a lot of my GT members. By by manifesting. Like system. In in a in a notebook so just give that some consideration, but the other side to this so other than not being able to use the technology, and so therefore you're forced into a paper based environment. The other side for me was that I come from a planner day planner kind of system, and so I was a a very vibrant and happy You know a day planner, and so I can remember in my my elementary school and and junior high school days in New York with trapper keeper, and keeping my daily tasks and everything inside of that that day planner environment, and as I, as I graduated into young adulthood kind. Kind of my my adolescence and young adulthood I started journaling and I for some reason have wanted those to be separate from one another and one of the things I. Thought About for folks who may not want to a disconnect those pieces, but continued to use Joe, but have them separate is that there are many applications out there? I like the Application Journey I know that Augusta us on one note on sorry day one and so so journey and day one and many of these other journaling applications allow you to actually to take photographs, so you can actually snap a photo of pages of your of your of your bullet. And use that as a mechanism for capturing your thing, and yet might have resident tasks and projects within it. It has the journal components that you want in it? And therefore that is backed up or archived within the note base system, and then you can journal Long-form when you want to, but also capture those thoughts throughout the day without having a loss of those from the continuous system that you've created for journaling, so I have considered that as well as a part of of how some people might manifest the system and more importantly what I love about journey is that it actually comes back to me a year later and says hey, this is a this is. You have two entries from a year year ago in two years ago or five years ago and should check out these journal entries and. Upon what you learned, and so if there's an image attached then I could just pop open the image in there. It is the few items that I've written down in my Abu Notebook pages. From from yesteryear in theory, so give that some thought that you can actually facilitate technology here to use the bullet in that regard as well. You know it's interesting. You bring up journey then because I'm I'm a fan of using journey to, but I've always struggled a little bit with it with Sag segregation between. Just keeping a journal in it and keeping track of all the other stuff, and since you mentioned that I run a Samsung, no date so I have the Stylus, and just playing with it as we were talking about this and one of the things I made it do as I took I, use the Samsung notes, and I hand wrote a page of bullet journal style notes on using the Stylus, and then I use the share function to send an image of those notes directly to journey so now I have on my journey page for this time. I have the image of the notes. I tot- I have the date the time the location I. I took them the weather how I was feeling at the time or those important. Those are all things that could be really useful with a bullet journal structure. That's an that's an interesting approach. It's a tool that I don't think many people would think about four something like bullet journaling, but may be a good way to apply it, so yeah, get out of the normal definitions. Try some other tools that it's a great example as to how flexible this concept is, and you can just try it and see if it works, and if it doesn't work, it's not GonNa hurt anything or anybody. It is funny. You mentioned that trapper keeper has. My daughter is going fifth grade sixth grade some great. But the fact is the next great she's going. She's going to experience her first proper caper on alias, really really funny. To Go and buy and I'm. Glad some my wife was there with me and did not allow me to buy my own trumper from plus. To three hundred dollars of accessories that will have. Myself Too thin I will have not us, but it was really really funny to walk into that Memory Lane and remember yeah I like you. Start was at trumper keeper. From there, I found That at the time Franken Kobe stores made a better trumper keeper because instead of being. Letter size, a eight and a half by eleven. They made it a junior size that he was much better to take notes and. I, still believe that the junior size is better for portability for take notes for everything else, so it was really really fun to to go out with her an star looking into all this and star show in her. How some of the this thing's really can be the the entrance on the portal to to the productivity world into what I if you have never been involved with it, Bush, was a bullet journal and you start researching. Remember you done need to have any artists actually Carl is one of the ones who said I'm not artistic at all. Mine is black and white. Okay, said, don't go into when you start looking at those images thinking Oh. This is not for me because I will never be. I will never have the time or the interest to make this such elaborate system. That's really really really important. I believe because he's one of the biggest obstacles. For people get into so if you look at that and you say never be able to diss, undo it on this way. Take Into Consideration that the bullet journal do not require any of that so that that's really really important on for a listeners to leave I have to echo the Gustav thoughts on the idea. You know you don't have to be an artist don't be scared of what you find on the Internet, and on facebook and on pinterest related to bullet journaling started. Its most basic read one of the old posts that are out there. You don't have to look at the most latest version of it. And just give it a start and see if it feels comfortable. It's going to take some tweaking. It's GonNa. Take some modification, but it's one of those things that has probably the lowest cost of ownership to get in. And the shortest learning curve of any of the systems out there, so it's one of those things. Give it a try if it doesn't work, you haven't sacrificed a lot to find that out. and. I would be remiss if I didn't mention to our listeners that this is actually a book now that writer has published the Journal method, and so there's a link to that in the show notes, so you can hop out and see the book and read it where he goes into quite a good bit of depth around it. There's an audiobook version which also has a supplemental pdf that you can download when when you by the audiobook version, and that's a very useful little supplemental pdf that you can review and see things. worked out and has van diagrams kind of showing the but the bullet journal method which I think, the visuals can be very helpful and. Kind of wrapping your head around his ideas of intention. He actually also did a text talk unintentionally and I'll embed that also in and linked to that in the in the show notes as well will thank you gentlemen for this really great conversation around the bullet journal method, and as an extension to our prior episode like I a pulling to the prior episode in the show notes but if you have a question about the bullet, journal method, or you have a comment about this episode about tailoring the Bullet Journal method to your needs feel free to head.

Have you ever started a new diet or exercise program, only to slide back into your old routine of few days or weeks later? What about when you want to try new medication or supplement, you find yourself forgetting to take them? You're definitely not alone. The challenge of creating new healthy habits is something that is just part of the human condition. We all understand the struggle of trying to get our the rut and do something new. He see our brains are hard-wired for routine, and in general, we tend to stick with things that are either the least amount of effort or give us the highest amount of benefit, but the benefits I'm talking about are the biological short term ones which is why feel so dang good to eat pizza and stay in sweatpants all day science. However, if you're like me, you're always looking for ways that you can take better care of yourself and really boost your healing to the next level self-improvement is a popular goal these days, but it really is a way of life or. Anyone dealing with chronic health issues. The thing is I know that my body has the ability to heal itself. The only problem is in shifting out the bad habits that hinder that healing and replace those with more positive habits that enhance it and trust me. I've certainly got a handful of not so great habits, I'm still working on changing, but all in all I have been able to create and solidify a lot of wonderful routines over the years, which I credit for a lot of my healing and sanity for each and every one of these positive changes I relied on these seven keys to make him stick number one find your Y, too often, we fly into a new routine without ever clarifying. Why we are actually doing the things we're doing. But those who take the time slowdown visualized their goals, and said intentions are much more likely to be successful in changing habits when you think about what you want to change. Fine, the motivation behind it and put it into words, do you wanna do this? It can be. Better parent to your kids. Do you won't have better calm and clarity of mind? Do you want to better support your immune system setting an intention for any new habit puts power behind your behavior and provides an anchor. When you feel tempted to go back to your old ways number to know your triggers when it comes to our neural pathways, we tend to be reactive to both our inner and outer environments, most of us have a specified reaction to certain stimuli, which we call triggers, especially when the result is something undesirable. We may not even be aware of many of our triggers. But there are always clues to follow when he can really tap in and apply. Some mindfulness. You might discover that your urged doughnuts, always falls, a stressful interaction with another person, or that you ten escape your yoga class when the weather is bad identifying the circumstances that lead to the habitual behavior. You want to change is the best place to start PC can learn anticipate in plan for these events. Number three plan ahead. It's always mart have a plan b in place, especially since we humans are so good at coming up with excuses for why we can't change our bad habits. Take a few minutes to devise a strategy to stay on track whether that's buying healthy snacks. In bulk, keeping your gym clothes in your car or stashing, extra bottle freshwater in your bag. If you struggle with taking meds, keep an extra pill case in your purse, or if you find yourself slipping with your meditation practice, get an extra set of headphones, and set a timer on your phone to remind you when it's time to pop them in when you can look forward and make it easier to stick to your new routine. You not only have more success. You'll feel better about yourself to number four recruit Abbadi. Yes. Accountability, actually does work. And luckily nowadays, there are so many diverse options for hooking up with people who wanna make new habits just like you, if you don't have a friend, nearby that wants to take on the same diet or go to sleep at the same time you can always find great. Online community to help you. There are forums, private Facebook groups, Instagram communities and all memberships of all kinds where you can connect. And of course, there are in person meet up groups and clubs dedicated to supporting each other's health goals. There are also plenty of health coaches like me ready to keep you on track. No matter what you are looking to shift in your life. You should have someone on your side to help you along number five track your progress, our brains of a sneaky little way of forgetting. How far we've come over time and adjusting our expectations to meet our new reality. Sadly, this can make us feel discouraged when we can't remember how things used to be is amazingly handy to keep track of all the great changes. You're making seeking look back and give yourself a well-deserved high five now and then you can go old school with paper journal and pen or you can use a digital diary, may tech linked avenue phone, a computer program or something else. There are so many options, especially when it comes. Two apps that have tracking built in so it's merely a matter of finding them in using them you'll thank yourself when you can really see how awesome you're doing. Number six go slowly. I admit I struggle with trying to take on too many changes out once, and then failing miserably at all of them is important to set realistic goals in only focus on trying to shift one thing at a time. What's face, it change is hard till make it harder on yourself by overwhelming, your mind and body with a bazillion new things you won't actually be able to banish all of your bad habits in a few weeks. No matter what your impatience says, if you wanna make lasting change for the better and support yourself for a healthy lifestyle. Shift go, slowly identify one bad habit. They'll be relatively easy to change to give yourself a boost of confidence. Then tackle a harder higher priority, habit, next, and number seven reward yourself. You can go ahead and skip the your new behavior should be a reward in and of itself. Alf blah, blah and plan to reward yourself. When you've reached certain goals our minds crave rewards. So it's a good idea to throw yourself a little something in order to reinforce your new healthy behaviors keep in mind, though, that the best rewards are the ones that don't undermine your progress, like treating yourself a cake to celebrate a week free from refined sugar, and the ones that have lasting value like indulging in a meaningful. Experience rather than a cheap trinket, find the rewards that resonate with you and work those into your habit creation when he give yourself little things to look forward to your more likely to maintain enthusiasm and stay on track until your new habit becomes a regular routine.

Derek Carr on block?

"Whoa microsoft teams is helping bicycle company. Reinvent the way that they work. We make low-maintenance bicycles for everyday. Riders wants a pandemic hit. We had nobody coming into the showroom so we started doing virtual visits bmi teams where. We'll see two or three. Fold the amount customers. We used to be able to see all of a sudden. We could open up our showroom to customers around the world. I really think it's going to set a standard for retail moving forward. Learn more at microsoft dot com slash teams. He doing this. Is bill williams. This of this is tuesday night. Our weekly previous super bowl week. Our fame week charles woodson. Tom fours but that possible. Possible for buster. Nothing's on the horizon. But a interesting report at a las vegas tuesday mean by the way soon by podcast will be available tuesday night. It'll be on the website on wednesday morning so anyways. The las vegas review journal reported that coin. What nfl insiders. Who know who knows what that means. That could be any sort that could be general managers. Fb people inside the raiders. Be agents be media that the raiders are expected to take calls in from other teams about derek carr and they might be able to flip those picks and get the shawn watson. So this is you know. This isn't a pretty big deal. This isn't this radio show speculation was an actual newspaper report. It was a little loose. Might wanna read the profootballtalk take on it. Because i have the kind of the same take. I want to be very careful here. Because i am journalist. A know how it works. And i don't like ripping anybody but you know it seemed like it was something being floated was kind of a kind of pro football talk said in a kind of grew that but i'm trying to say that respectful because i'm not As rip you know those things happen. It's not a nod insulting anybody. I'm not accusing name. But he evading either. But that's kind of how it read. And i wasn't feeling thought that but we'll see and i'm not saying that he's not going to happen. I'm saying it's interesting. I'm saying we're not going to have another quiet. Derek carr rumor off season. That's over. I wrote yesterday about the matthew stafford trade which i thought was ludicrous by the rams ludicrous by the rams two. If you don't know i'm sure you do. Jared goff round pick canned to first round pick went to the lights for matthew stafford whose days away from being thirty three years old. Who had some injury. Problems rams gave up that contract but this wasn't some nba like deal. This was know deal to get better. But you give a lot rams so. I wrote a monday that some people read you write. This won't because let me be the pro and this was vegas paper. Journal story says why. I wrote it. Because there's going to be interest in a lot of quarterbacks year. am the raiders. Good a deal that they can't say no to that. Maybe they make that trade. But then you're gonna cost a lot to get watson my thought is if you're going to pay watson money you're gonna give up a lot of first round picks even though you get some backing car defense. Fix the defense. The raiders average. Almost thirty points a game. I don't know if the just an upgraded quarterback is gonna do it. So i don't know we'll see i never say never We'll just see how this goes. We'll just see how this goes and but it's interesting but what it tells me is. It's not going to be quite often. it's not in. It never is never stopped. Somebody inside the raiders have. I don't know that could happen a lot for that to happen. So you know you. Never the raiders. The raiders interesting. Tom brady last year. The raiders were interested in on brady. Bill davis him a lot so to see tom brady in the super bowl may want make some people say okay. Let's get the best quarterback avail again. I think defense is the problem. Or the raiders. Could wave known super bowl this year. No not quite yet. But that's that's what they gotta get gotta get better on. Defense and annual ears are starting to look at free agents. They're not gonna have a ton of money to spend think they're gonna look for bargain. Guys guys who may be young guys who may be ready to become starters. So you really. You're really going to rely on your scouting. You know that you really Got some cuts to make. I do think it's possible that they cut trent brown You know i mean you know. He's got to be on the field. It gets frustrating. But if you cut trent brown then okay giving money but you also gonna need to replace him and you know that's not so easy and you gave him like almost thirty seven million dollars for two years for what p forty one percent of the plays on the field so i think if you cut trent brown yet you're not going to have to deal with him not being available but also you spend a lot of money Much and you're not going to be better at that position so you got to think about that. You know you know we do we to talk about everything that's out there this fun and you know talk about the news and that's what we're doing Mike mayock top to think was the las vegas review journal last week. Integral damodar net zero working as nutrition. He's gonna work on the weights Nutrition i found that interesting. Because i've never really you know big problem with a twenty three twenty four year old quarterback this nutrition. So that's that's interesting to me i think. The raiders wanna see. Darren net really commit to his craft and become better football player. This year put up. They put a lot into the number nineteen by the way. Espn did a Redraft and let's say rubs wasn't twelve. Had wasn't eighteen Jason witten retires in his coaching high school in texas. Good luck him. I wanna see foster moreau get Play time. I like foster road. You listen to this show any part of the last two years much like that guy now. He's not he's not daring waller but he's a nice number two. He's a nice number two in in you know what type of guy that might. We've in free agency for a real number one spot in two years so you might as well get a lot out of them when you can. You know what i mean. max crosby had surgery on his hand in shoulder miss. He played like about as much of. I think the second most defensive snaps at defensive end so he's a tough guy he's a tough guy. Free agency to file away. I'll be writing about these guys but just you know of. We read about some point. This file away. Racial jenkins of the safety. Morgan fox of the rams jenkins is a safety. Morgan fox is a defensive end. I don't if you're gonna ford fox because you got nesbitt still out there. It would hurt a lot has been the to this little to be embedded in Been better quick. Hausky staying healthy they gotta get a lot out of those guys spent on last year collins just a one year deal so he's kinda out of the deal but that's what they gotta do. Yenagoa wrote about him last week. The raiders are connected to him last year right before the draft. He ended up being traded twice as a free agent. Things get paid a lot in you know. I think he's more of a good player than a great player So you know. The raiders may show some interest. But i think he may be too expensive for their blood. This year have story last week on a nelson are free. They want back. Was yoda his team in. The locker room after the miami was about accountability. Nicholas moral top. The day after the season about count ability from players and coaches. I think accountability is an issue with this team. I think starts jon gruden. I've talked about this before. I think he makes too many excuses. I think he tries to maybe protect some people. Sometimes i think derek carr gets into that game. Sometimes i like jon gruden. I think he's a really good guy obviously knows what he's doing football but i think he needs to stop with the excuses and so we talk about accountability. I think that's where that stands starts with coach. I mean he made course cases dude every team is dealing with covert and guess what. There's two teams right now. They're deal of covered in that tampa bay kansas city and they made it all the way. So i wanna hear. Only arrests excuses for jon. Gruden your four. I really do agus. Bradley brought four coaches from the chargers in Jenkins you know the guy melvin. Ingram might be out there for humane make sense very. I wouldn't spend a lot of money. He's to be thirty. I think he's thirty one or thirty two and he didn't have any sexual because injuries. He's getting close to the end but he had a decent price. He would be an interesting fit. Free agent wise david ervine. The raiders signed him to a future contract like they did a lot of their practice squad players of he's working with the cold so david ervine is moving on you know. Try to strike gold and people get excited during the season urban. you get vic beasley you tag mckinley. In what did you get any of those players. Those types of players rarely hit. I understand going after them in the middle of the season but guys are the middle usually cut middle season because through team that just cut them doesn't think they can help with the rest of the year and that was really the case for most guys. Urban was out of the league. But yeah. I mean that has case with these guys. The rate is gonna get picked some pastures before this is the start. They gotta make sure they play. Well that's the key. I think so house quick little show. I'm not here to talk and talk and talk. I'm here to deliver no fancy bs. I just go so this. Derek carr trade. We'll see like. I said i'm not pooh-pooh it. I'm just going to see what happens. And that matthew stafford trade change things around the weeks Teams are gonna enlist not this if the raiders. Trade car is not because those deal that we couldn't pass up known you wanted to trade him so we'll see where this goes so thanks. We'll be back next week. What do you think the same goes for Wins put me off. I can deal with it of. I say i think tim brady wins number seven years with me off too so this is a tough one for this community. My suggestion is have some drinks. It'd be choice. Make them pena. Poppers get on some football boards for entertainment purposes only occurs greasy revolt. And screw it so there you go. That's my professional advice. Screw it so. This is the williamson as bryan have agree week be sable dumpty next week. Everybody thank you.

Is they take the relationships show in front of them to go. I guess that's the way it is. I guess my parents are like that. Why have any ambition for anything better. They're never gonna change. They get they are dating or they get married and they go well. I guess it is what it is. I've been with her for five years. She's not going to change. And you get this idea that people don't change and what you do is your ambition keeps falling and you allow your dream your desire your ambition for great relationships to continually get knocked down every time. Someone doesn't understand you. You've let your ambition for vibrancy intimacy and sexiness and fun and joy in your partner relationships fall down every time you get into. Fight it stacks on every time there's trouble it's tax on and you keep getting more and more frustrated with the person you're frustration grows into closed down communication and now there's a distance there's block and what people do is stop keeping their ambition for great relationships alive. I had the blessing of horrible relationships. Anyone else i mean. I add terrible relationships. Just awful just the worst terrible relationships when i was a young man right. This came up like i had this terrible relations. I grew up in a town where everybody beat me up know. I grew up in a town wherever. There's a lot of really really really chat. This awful adult behavior grew up in a place where there wasn't a lot of good communication. I my first relationships with people i dated. Were just horrible judgment just off just like negativity and just huge demonstrations of anger and it was like whoa and the blessing was sometimes. We need to change some for me. It was. I got a knock it ahead with my car accident. Amy realize actually. I don't like that. I want phenomenal relationships. I want phenomenal relationships with everybody around. And so how many of you ever had that ambition before and maybe you picked up a book like how to win friends and influence people or or how to talk so people listen or how to argue and win every time you picked up these books and you're like oh i need to learn how to share and communicate with. That was me. I was dork. I my whole life. When i struggle sometimes go to books and i just start reading on things and one of the blessings was i read about these people who had great relationships and i never had that but i kept my ambition. Hey it's brennan. And i want to jump in the middle of this episode here real quick and tell you about something. I'm really excited about and something to answers the question that many of you have from all the time which is brennan. Where do you get this crazy. Focus and energy in your life and the truth is i've developed supplement line. That really helps me do that. And frankly i needed to.

The difference could h wellness dot com right now. Hp wellness dot com. Here's the hardest thing to ask anyone to in this particular year razor ambition for your relationships especially now somebody who've been shut in with your family for so long because the pandemic that you're just like we're trying to survive and you're trying to blunt difficulty by just turning on the tv all the time we're handing over devices all the time and the ambition to have great relationships with the kids with the spouse with everybody else is kind of faded into. I'm just going to survive. But i'm here to warn you is your coach that i'm just going to survive in this relationship jeff's trying to get through the days with family that ambition is lower than your potential. That ambition is hurting your intentions. That low ambition not to have something. Great is cheating you from fulfilling the destiny. You're probably meant to have but would require great relationships and is your coach. I'm here to say be wary of the fact that you are so wary in your relationships. Be attentive act like. Oh wow we are just trying to survive right now because that's a slippery slope. Isn't that like when you just try to survive in. Imagine you run a business right. You're a ceo you're entrepreneur. You're running your business if you allow just surviving to last for months or years. That company never survives right. Someone in that company must have ambition for what growth for better service better relationships with the customers. If you don't have that in the business the business now is that's the same thing in marriage and relationship. The same thing in child parenting the same thing every time. We don't keep an ambition to challenge ourselves to do better. We end up hurting the very thing. And so i'm here say have ambition great relationships again and i know your first impulse can easily be you. Don't understand my husband. Well you don't understand these crazy kids. You don't understand this team university understand my business you know. What don't you don't understand person because that stops you from learning people. Say you don't understand. They cut off the very advice. They need to hear because they want self justify. Does it make sense. That it's hard is it makes sense. It's much more difficult with someone who doesn't listen doesn't make more sense when you have an obstinate husband team or person on in your business sure. Those are roadblocks those are difficulties. Those are struggles but just because it's hard doesn't mean it's impossible to improve just because it's hard doesn't mean it's impossible to improve. You can improve your relationships. And i think you're gonna find that and we're gonna start at right now. You want improve your relationships. Let's do a gut check. How much ambition have you had recently for. Great relationships have you woken up about it. Have you journal about have you thought about. Is it in your goal sheet. If i paraded in your house show me the piece of paper that says improve this relationship showing me the piece of paper that says create great relationships with everybody. I mean. show me the paper show me. How often that piece of paper journal show me. How often you wrote that down and then we can have a conversation that i don't understand right so let's start with. Have you had the ambition. And it's not. Let's reignite that today let's reignite your desire for deep compelling beautiful awesome fulfilling intimate zesty fun relationships again you can have and if you stop yourself from believing that it only you disengage from the skill set disengaged from the development here and that might sound like harsh or judgmental away for a coach off with.

How to Listen to Your Inner Voice

"Welcome to the mindset for life podcast. This is Bethany year. Coach from Dr. Be Coach Dot Com coaching with power purpose practical tools to help you show up with confidence. Hello there and thank you for joining me for the podcast today. This episode is about hearing your inner voice. Many of US spend a lot of time looking for answers. We want some guidance. We want help. We want someone to hold her hand and guide us through life. We already have an inner voice that gives us that kind of guidance. For some of us it may be our own thoughts or our conscience. Maybe it's the holy, Spirit, or heavenly father or God, and maybe it is the good spirit or forces out there in the universe. I personally believe that it is God speaking to me and you can, of course choose what you believe it to be whatever it is in this episode. I'm going to call that. Your inner voice so I'm GonNa. Talk about how to learn to listen to your inner voice. What value this guidance can have for you and how you can determine whether this is good for you, and whether you should follow what you find there. The first thing is how you can learn to listen to your inner voice. Many times my inner voice speaks to me through my own thoughts, my own words and my own voice sound in my mind. Sometimes my inner voice comes through a thought I might have that refers back to something. I've read it. Might a book a motivational book of some kind I also do study scripture, and sometimes it'll come to me through verse of Scripture. That comes to my mind. Other Times! Just be a song so I'll have music playing in my mind, and as I become aware of what the music is saying. Usually it's music with words all notice what the message of the music is and a lot of times. It's a message that my mind needs to hear. So, one morning I woke up with a particular song in my head, and was just singing loudly in my head, as if I was listening to it on a CD it was incredibly reassuring, very hopeful and very helpful. I chose to put it on my. IPHONE and play the song throughout my morning to further motivate myself and inspire myself to get through my day. So sometimes hear that voice through music. In my mind, I also studied music college for all three of my college degrees, and I've played music my entire life I used to write songs as well so it's very natural for the voice of music to speak to me. Maybe. That's not the most natural thing for you. It's possible that you might hear your inner voice through an impression of visual thought. If you're visual art type of person, you might even see a picture in your mind, something or think about a certain color or a scene that you've seen before or did you can imagine. For some people, an inner voice speaks to them through someone else. Perhaps they've been contemplating meditating on something praying about it, really reflecting about a problem or a particular issue, and somehow they'll end up in a conversation with another person where the topic comes to light and through the conversation, the answer they were seeking might come through in those comments from the other person so sometimes what we might call our inner voice actually comes through the voice of other people. If we're really listening, we can be aware of those answers when they come and those thoughts that push us in the right direction. So. Let's talk about how to begin to hear your inner voice how to become aware of it and take note of what's coming to your mind. The first tip I have for you today. is to create a place for your inner voice to be heard. This usually happens through some silence. It could be that it's early in the morning and you're just having a quiet time to think. Perhaps this late in the evening before you go to bed, and maybe you've done some reading and you're going to wind down in your bedtime routine. But somewhere during your day you'll need to set aside at least a few minutes to just be quiet and contemplate and create openness and space where this inner voice can be heard. The second thing is that you want to pay attention to what you're feeling. Emotions can often convey a message as well. You'll want to calm your emotions down a bit so that you can just really make sure that they're not driving the situation. When you're trying to hear your inner voice, so you've repealing some particularly intense emotion, it can help I to perhaps write them down or talk through them with somebody you could write them in a journal or just type them up in a document that maybe you're just going to save or even delete once. You've gotten it out, but getting out. All of your emotion about things is incredibly helpful as you're creating space for your voice to come through. Third. You want to notice something. You've heard in your mind more than one time. So, for example I was in a meeting a few weeks ago, where one of the speakers was talking about a specific subject, and what I heard that person say was one particular idea that really came through loud and clear. The. Next person to speak at that conference was actually talking about a different subject altogether, but the message I got from them quoted something. The first person had also said even though they prepared their comments separately I heard the same message in that second person's talk. Later that day, a third person started to quote the exact same thing now for me. All kinds of bells and whistles went off in my mind because I noticed this pattern. And it started to be very apparent to me that that was a message. I needed to hear right then. And, not everyone with me. Who was listening to that conference got that same message out of the experience, but it's definitely what I heard, and so I jotted down and thought about it further and realized that that wasn't message uniquely for me. So pay attention to patterns when you sent something over and over. And perhaps you should that down and think about it further. Another tip about listening to your inner voice is to be intentionally listening purposeful. About tuning into your inner voice when you have a sense or a thought or an idea that comes to your mind. Write it down. Find a notebook or something that you can record these thoughts in. For me I have two different places. I have a paper journal so I. Write in a journal and all. Write down these ideas that come to me. But I also use my notes. APP In my iphone and I will just dictate with my voice and all record those comments into my iphone so that I have them when they're fresh, and then I'll save them in a look over them some later time when I've had a chance to go onto something else. Then come back to these ideas kind of revisit them. Open them up and think more deeply about them. So one morning I had this distinct impression that I have a serious amount of resistance in my life towards something. And I realized it early one morning and I was thinking about how I needed to reduce my resistance to this idea. And I was resisting and by doing that I became the one thing standing in my way of growing and succeeding at this thing that I was working on. So I wrote it down. I thought about it. And I kind of went about my business, and look back at it later, and the next thought occurred to me. was that in the situation where I was putting up some resistance about this idea? I was also expecting a lot from other people, so I was kind of resisting situation because I wanted other people to do something or to. Play a bigger role than they were doing. So then the next thought I, jot down, notes was to let go of expecting from others and from myself, stop expecting compliance and different things from other people. So jotted down those two ideas and I thought about them. And Pretty Soon I thought of a few more that I wrote down so whatever you decide to use as your note taker, you can do it on paper, or you can do it in some kind of APP on your phone. Keep track of the ideas and add to them. And Pretty soon these little impressions that you've had will fill out into more complete thoughts. Your sub-conscious brain will continue to work on them while you're moving onto something else so that when you can come back to them at another quiet time, a place to kind of reflect and dig into thinking you'll be able to see more clearly what the message is for you and what you can do with it. Another tip I have for you about learning to listen to. Your inner voice is about analysis and logical thinking now a lot of times. When we're dealing with a problem, we'll bring it up into the. Purposeful areas of our thought patterns, and we'll really analyze it will pros and cons, and we'll look at all those things and pick it apart. There's a time and a place for that, and that is very important, but when we're trying to listen to the inner voice, be careful not to become too analytical to quickly. Instead entertained curiously by thinking with openness and questions. The brain really wants to close loops. It doesn't like unanswered questions so when your mind suggest to you a certain pass to follow or an idea to begin investigating further, it's very easy for your subconscious brain to step in and answer the question. An argument about why you should not follow a certain path. It's very quick at things down again. Because it's automatic, it really wants to close the loop. Solve a problem and give you the answers as quickly as possible. So when you're learning to listen to your inner voice. Be Open about it and be careful not to shoot down your own ideas, then it can become very complicated and difficult to hear your inner voice. As you learn to listen to your inner voice. Think about your body. When you're feeling something thinking about a situation or an idea or a scenario. Notice whether you're having any tension in your body. Sometimes you might actually have a physical response to thought you may be having. For example if you've been under a lot of stress about a particular issue, maybe it's approached project at work or something happening at work when you think about that project. If you were to have say a kind of a cramp in your shoulder or a heaviness on your back. It might actually be your body's way of responding to the sensation that your mind is creating. Perhaps it feels like a burden on your back or a heavy load debater. As you think about what you're feeling in your body when you're getting in tune with your inner voice, sometimes your body will play a part in that and bring your attention to a place where there might be tension or resistance or physical discomfort associated with particular idea. Likewise when you're entertaining an idea, that's really good for you. Sometimes it will help you to slow down your breathing. It will help you to calm down your body, and you will feel a sense of calm or even piece at times when you think about this idea. So pay attention to your body, and be careful not to over analyze when you're learning to pay attention to your inner voice. Lastly I would suggest getting really curious about ideas that come to you when you're getting in tune with your inner voice. You can imagine this like a conversation. Like on the one side, you're an observer patiently noticing your thoughts noticing your feelings and getting really curious about that. You can ask yourself questions. You can entertain possibilities and sort of have a back and forth conversation. Really be as objective as possible and explore fully any ideas that come to your mind. Now, let's talk about how you might apply things that you learn when you spend time reflecting on your inner voice and the thoughts that come to your mind. The first thing is. You may need to put these thoughts in a place where you can look over them regularly. And give you an example about this. I was incredibly stressed about something that occurred at the beginning of the pandemic, so people were buying out the stores. And I was almost compulsively going to the store every single day when the day started I mean it was probably early March and the pandemic was declared, and I just started to go from store to store to store looking for toilet paper, looking for canned foods looking for all kinds of things. I didn't really need these things, but I felt a sense of urgency and panic. I wasn't really sure that anything would ever return back to normal. I don't know if you've had a similar experience. But at the time it was like a crisis to me and I knew it was a little abnormal, but I wasn't sure how to call my feelings and thoughts about it. I thought about it. I read some things I tried to explore. Why am I feeling this sense of dread and panic and what it could do to calm it down? I reflected a lot on it. I prayed. I reflected meditated I did a lot of things. And one morning I awakened and a thought came to my mind, and it was a very clear thought about fear, power and sound thinking. Also thought about. The length of my life and the quality of my life. These thoughts were incredibly clear to me. And they came in the form of quotes from things I had read, so I wrote them down and highlighted them in my journal in Yellow. And several different days after that the moment I started to feel this fear and panic again, I was able to look on that page in my journal, and read it to myself, and instantly I felt calm again. It was very intuitive, very hopeful guidance. And it was clearly my inner voice speaking to me. Or as I feel it was the spirit guiding me. And it was very easy for me to tune into that again when I needed it. So if there are times when you feel a similar type of idea, come to you, that is calming comforting. Or maybe it's even idea pushing you in a particular direction. If you write it down and look over it again and again it can strengthen that thought in your mind, and it can give you real direction when you follow it. So that's my first tip about how to apply what you might learn when you listen to your inner voice. Secondly. I wouldn't expect my inner voice to tell me the same message over and over again. Really when I have a clear message in my mind and I write it down then. I feel that I have an obligation to act on what I am thinking or figure out what it means for me. If I set it aside and ignore it then I really am not encouraging myself to be in tune with that inner voice very well and I'm also likely to miss any guidance. I could find so I would suggest when you take it seriously and really learn things from your inner voice in these moments where you're going to pursue this to act on those things that you. Realize what comes to light for you and definitely expect to continue learning from your inner voice as you do. You'RE GONNA. Get better and better at hearing it. And take some time to reflect on what those thoughts lead for you. Did they help you with a direction? Did they come your fear about something? Did they give you confidence? And as you learn those things, you're going to get better and better. Hearing your inner voice. A third thing I'd like to suggest in applying this to your own life. Is when you have a very clear and distinct thought that feels right, intuitively good, and like a message to you and your mind, and you write it down, and you entertain it and you kind of think about it. Be Very careful not to share this thought with people who are going to poke holes in it quickly asking their permission to believe your own inner voice. When I was a younger person even in my thirties. I used to do this. I would have a clear distinct thought. And I would question it. I would ask my husband when he thought I, would ask my mother what she thought. I would ask my friends what they thought I would look up things from experts on the Internet, about what they thought I should do. And I was sort of set aside the inner voice with all sorts of questions in my mind. It wasn't until later when something might come to light. That made it really obvious that I had the answer. All along I delayed my choice and I made things more difficult for myself by putting it out there for all of these other people took question, poke holes in and push around. When the whole time my inner voice was meant for me. It wasn't meant for the other people. So when I would ask for their approval to take some action or to step forward in some direction, I was really telling my inner voice that I didn't trust it. So there is a time in a place where you might share things, but be careful not to share your inner thoughts as you're getting in touch with your inner voice with people who are likely to tear it down. It makes it incredibly hard to hear your own into it, if thinking and any other positive influences from the universe that you might be seeking. So write them down. Think about them. Take Action on those that makes sense for you and expect to continue learning and growing from the thoughts that you have. Thank you for joining me today I.

And it is for me, a great pleasure to speak with people that have managed to, to create this habit. And. To look for to seek the gratitude look for the things that they are grateful for in their life. So vanessa. How did you start? With a gratitude that. Okay. I started. With gratitude journal because I was following. I was doing, you know, the Weaver thing therapy, it's a kind of breathing and it was part of it. So starting a gratitude journal was a part of the of the daily basis. And I looked at the store for gratitude, and it appeared, the three six five up of Justin, which is amazing. And that's that's how I started. Deform. Beautiful so firstly. I, I wanted to get the feel of where you are because you described Barcelona in such beautiful manner. Before we got to, to record that I think it will be something, very beautiful for our listeners to find out this. Well. Yet, that's owner for the ones that haven't visited yet is a beautiful city. I am grateful to live here. And I would like to say that not only we have a beautiful places deejays. Mountings museums are but also the people who live here is very, very warm. So if you have have to come to work here or whatever reason you will find that people's will commute welcoming you and the people come see you to talk. Helps you whenever they can. And he's really a pleasure to here, just for that reason as beautiful, it's actually a haven't been to Marsano yet. But from what I've heard, and from what I've seen it's, it's one of the most beautiful cities in the world and. Yeah. It's all. It's also I'm I'm a soccer fan and my. Eli. Pardon? You like messy. Yeah. And the whole team. Like. A big fan. And I think one of the things that are like about the football club is the fact that they, they do what they do with, with grace, somehow like they create art out of out of this game like it's not just competition. But it's also art somehow and I think that you can find that in Barcelona is well, like it's full of art, and that, that's such a beautiful thing. It's so it's important for us. I've actually seen a YouTube video about our architecture and how it impacts our mood. I that whenever place for instance in, in Romania. We have lots of communist flats, like they are just gray and really simple and no art. No anything. And I've seen for instance, Janna or other other cities that are full of art, and you get the beautiful feeling just by walking around and just seeing the beauty that that you find on the streets. And the fact that the, the people are also wore my, I didn't know much about that because then haven't been there, I think it actually makes for, for place that. I would save make it makes it a little bit easier to to find gratitude. Amai my right, don't subtly does. Because, you know, life is life. And sometimes you feel you can feel how being sometimes you can feel down in when you feel down, and you can walk in the street and you can find people who come to you to say Hello. Or they say Hello because they are happy. Oh, you know that, that is for me. It's really really important. And this kind of people you can find it here. I have to be in the end. I rely on myself as much as possible. That we have this human interactions. Lert is so fulfilling and they make us feel so grateful. The fact that we are. Absolutely. Yeah. Like we receive all kinds of little helps or at least beautiful words or just human interaction is something something really beautiful. It really important. And also, we are living in ADA of a social media of image of, you know, and there is a little tendency to lose this personal contacts and only took with your really close friends. You know what I mean? And I think it's really important to keep it. Because for example, now you can be at the buck, you can be, you know, feeding the, the patients in. For example, I'm watching a lot of senior people here in. I don't know. I know that there are so many people are feeling lonely, and they only need you to say Hello to them. How are you? Good morning. You know really needs. It's super important. And I do I to do it every day. So you do that as well. Yeah, yeah, that's amazing. That's amazing. So you're like a real citizen of Salona and. I just to do what, what I would like to the to me. So maybe, you know, there's always someone who has to start. So if you are aware of it, why don't you start just? I love that. But such beautiful idea. Let's see. And you're, you're actually, making the world better place like free with, with these kinds of actions. And then that, that's so beautiful and you are because we are sometimes we are so full of fairies of these over that because I read these because, but why don't we do something just do something, you know, little actions? Br example, I've I dunno. I when I was at the university, I was such an intellectual person, you know. And I, I really thought that ideas where everything and there is a moment alive. When kind of have discovered that. Yeah. You, you may have super good ideas. But not you do if you don't do something. Don't go to the street, if you don't. Start doing little things you're never never, never manifest. That's so true. That's so true. I love that of that. And. How did you? Feel like after writing each day about about gratitude how, how did your life change. How, how did your perspective change about your life? Okay. So I would like to say that when I started the data to journal, and also in my in the post, we do the physics community. It's is there. So I started the journal and with these rebirthing therapy, because I was going through a joke seek relation. Then when I started to feel grateful about little things because there is there, there was a moment when I was just really sad. I didn't want to get up in the morning. I didn't want to eat. I am sure that there are many people who have failed this also. And yet, and I just started to feel grateful to righted about whatever. Okay. I am eating pizza today. I love pizza. Thank you for the visa of. Thank you for this trousers. Thank you for waking up today for, you know it when you start maybe, maybe you feel like this is this is. Ridiculous or something. You know, you can have these kinds of feelings, but just roll on just go on to keep on doing it people doing and then. It's a. You have like a sensation of going into a space in. I would I like to go that space, the space of love because you start to realize that you agree for so many things that you kind of blessed that you live is, has a lot of Meany. And I think and really this is I am about to cry now. But I, I think an I'm sure and I have experienced that ready to. Is is a tune of love is the do. I'm sure maybe there are more tools, but this is one it so powerful. And if you just keep on doing it, maybe today, you feel inside that maybe tomorrow, you feeling whatever. But just keep hundred. Don't, don't still don't still and yet it does make a real real different life. That's so encouraging, and so beautiful, could you expand a little bit on this on the fact that you feel that gratitude is a tool of love? Yeah, yeah. Of course, NSM also linked to be two three six five up, which has been very helpful, because even if I speak to this to some friends, and they say, yeah, but it's just a nap yet, but inside is up. There is a community and this community is going through the same as you in the if you know if you if you knew. Georgian how many days, I have failed, you know, because there when, when you're going through something like that is very incense in your life, and that relationship was really intense. And I had to go through that to realize about many things to become aware of many things when you have a community there is supporting you and there are supporting you just by being rippled for their lives, even talking to you that actually, but you feel that there, there is a place of as how to call it. But for me, it's like a bomb, you know, it's. I'm really, really grateful to Justin to have created this, and I hope that this growth because I really feel that has a troop potential. I can say we're now definitely definitely the fact that you see other people right? Chatting about what they're grateful for. And it it gives you inspiration and get it makes you think about the those things in your life as well. Exactly any, you anew feel really connected to do those people even if you don't know, them and. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's beautiful. And it's it's one of the reasons why why love three sixty five gratitude so much and why we have done this collaboration because I, I really believe that having a community of people like minded people is, is so important. And so, yeah, absolutely. Yeah. And, and there's some sometimes when you when the app like kind of invites you to make post of a to the community and sometime you. I'm sure I'm sure that if they're people have this up and people wherever that at least sometimes you, you really when you write something, you're really, really, really feeling it from the bottom of your heart, and the and kind of me sometimes was okay only people from this up can see this. You know, it's like go go on do it and, and I. Have some of my posts have been very, you know, deep feelings in, in, when you when you realize people have seen what you've written and maybe they read you something like all I went through the same or I dunno. It's. I, I have never ever failed. That's on on other kind of. Yet to say, I these difference. Yeah, I really think of it, as a, like a positive social media in which Sony about gratitude. And of course. There are challenges and, and all kinds of things. But when you see so much positivity and so much gratitude it inspires, you, it makes you think differently about your own life and about. Your own things that you that you are grateful for, but I really curious to see how you see gratitude as a tool of love. And I think this is a very beautiful concept yet. So. Every morning when I wake up. I not only a write in the basics five up. The also I writing a proper journal paper journal, I write all the things, I'm ready for for end as I'm doing it while I'm writing. I can feel an sure the many people who does it who does the same has failed the same. I feel the space I was talking to you before, like a space of a of love of healing. And then some things that have happened in, in, in my life do the day before or the there have happen now. Oh, maybe I can have some. Argue with someone at the moment in my life, and that kind of appearance, but not in an emotional way a other night on the should if, if you understand either be like, in a clean way for you to be aware of it and just let it go. And if there is some kind of solution to you, you just feel the solution in can say. It it works for everything for everything in any also. As I'm writing my journal I can feel more empowered, I can feel more. Conversely, how do you say in English? I feel more me more real more open, you know, as I'm as I'm writing sometimes there are things that I write them think before there, it's kind of difficult for me too, because especially when they're when they think of, of myself, you know, because other note, it depends on the person for me is more is easier to be grateful of things of out of me. And when it comes to me, like, for example, I'm writing, I'm thankful for my patients and there is something in my body is, you know wolf, but if but the exactly it is like really and in, but you really feel is like, yes, I'm thinking from the patients I have patients I am patience. And, and then you go on. It's, it's it, he's you, I it has you food. To fill that so beautiful. It's actually helping you see those qualities to appreciate them more year. And then you realize that you can't have everything, you know, and then you realize that, that things are not good about they're just how they are. And then you realize that your mother was not so bad. And then and then you realize that you love and it was like, wow. And it's amazing. That's amazing. That's amazing. And I'm sure that for some people getting to that level is something that's that's really, really hard. And it's it's beautiful that. Like you said indeed, it's it, it is a dull of love and. It can get you to, to from resentment basically to love it. And also, you, you discover how vast you call it like this in English vast vast love. I mean. Mean. We, we are told by television, buy movies by wherever that love is a certain thing, Loveys relations love as a romantic thing. Reload. For me right now in in I am to seeing a little bit. But for me now love is the force that moves the world, but really? That's beautiful. And it's an is very true. And is very true. Yeah. And how do you see that the that love is the force that, that is moving the world? So I see I can see in every little thing I can see, like, for example, sometimes. I can full imagine I am super stressed at work. I my the boss has told me to do things. I don't have time for it for nothing. I had an appointment with my friend and they and they said, they know the last time, you know, there, there are moments in your life. When you are like booth. Kind of you become aware awaits like I am stressed. And you is, I don't know how to say is you can use radical, but he's not even using you can. You can become aware of anything in your life. You can anything even the most mix of thing. And then you realize that. Everything is punched in the end. Everything is love anything that would happen to you, anything any algae, you hod any, maybe you, do you start doing if you kinda do it, you to your boss, like relaxed, and I know it's. You just. Other know how to spend it in words. But it's a feeling. Must be to actually have the words for that. And in the sense that it's from like from a scientific point of view is the fact that we can through gratitude and love. We can get to parts of our brain that we cannot when we are in a stress situation because for instance, when we are stressed and this is not just a few minutes, but we are stressed for quite a while it actually makes us blind to solutions. It makes us blind to the possibility of feeling better. And it's. Makes lots of sense. And I totally resonate with what you're saying. Because in my search in spirituality and self development and in different traditions, what I found to be. In common everywhere were to these two values love and gratitude. And I think they are they, they combine. Very beautiful, and, yeah, I love the way you combine them, and I think that's quite brilliant. Thank you. So we're nearing our the end of our time together. And I wanted to ask you right now. What you'll grateful for what are the things in your life that you appreciate and that make you happy? Okay. So right now, I am really grateful for my daughter, Chloe, because we are getting, she's starting that age that difficult age of a prey adolescence. I am becoming aware that everything is changing in. And that's. I tried to enjoy every moment I have with her. And, you know, sometimes I have a lot of work, and she tells me mom Kenny, can you come to play with bobby's Muny, and really baby. Don't have the time but there's. I have I am thankful right now full being able to set my priorities in life and not letting the so-called priorities, tell me what to do. So different. And. With this. I also want to say that the gratitude helps you to break all these other neighborhoods to college. System thing that kind of program that we all have like the way we have been indicated the way people told us that we were these, we were that gratitude helps to break all that. And to become the review to become just to become real, and that's it. And yet there are so many things I'm from fort right now. I'm grateful for the food. I'm going to eat just after this interview. Because the landlord says the fixed the, the, the one thing in my kitchen, and I was not able to. So I'm going to do really enjoy my my foot today from. Beautiful beautiful actually food is one of those things that we can enjoy anything for each day since we, we have to eat, and we get shoes and Jordan. If you ever come to Ilana, you really see why people say that Spanish food is one of the best were because me I if you can be a will take you to the restroom. Thank you so much, much. That, like I'm, I'm a foodie myself, and I really appreciate food and the, the kind of food that you can experience in different parts of the world. And yeah, I'm definitely. Looking forward to that. So thank you so much for your time. I will I think it would be best for you to to get to, to eat. I'm sure you're you're looking forward to that as well. And I'm really happy that we've spend the time together. And thank you so much for everything that you shared with me. And with our listeners, thank you very much, Georgian. And also, thank you to the physics five up. Hey gratitude seeker. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to this interview. I really appreciate it. And if you could think of one person that would also benefit from it, share it with them. It might actually be the inspiration that they need to make their day or maybe even their life much better. Thank you so much. Once again, this has been Georgia Banta, the forget to keep seeking and spreading gratitude. Twitting your burgers of a coffee table.

Then no matter what should pierce believes are most of us have something that will look up to right so that this company was actually formed to actually honor and glorify God to provide perform where everyone could win and servant leadership so what a server leadership means Corpora background and I know that the higher you go expected more people to serve you right L. Great Hey vida. It's a humble attitude where the higher we go the more we serve others how and what we can do to help. Our bodies is to drink. Something that has twenty seven tackles in.

How much zeal you need in your life than like I said I need a lot of the zeal of my life. So thank you guys drinking single day you got A. You're well I drink it everyday and you know a friend of mine was dehydrated. You know you can get distracted and forget to drink water and whatnot. So if you put this on your checklist remember. I told you I love checklist. If you put this on your checklist of things that you know you need to do drink water and you think I water water you know but man you can get your water and it tastes delicious with zeal. And it's just one little scoop just like she said you stirred or shaken off you go and it's easy and it tastes delicious. If this gentleman would have been drinking his zeal. I don't think he would have fallen down in hurt himself terribly because he was dehydrated. He ended up in the hospital because he was dehydrated and got dizzy and fell on the concrete. You know about that all important. Louise's mentioned you know take taking care of herself Have a bottle of water glass of water on your bed stand lunatic up in the morning. We're already dehydrate.

Health stuff You know I call it health stuff because it's so big. The whole industry is huge vote. What led you into it deb. So that's a funny story so like I said I had a corporate background and thirty years ago. Someone introduced me to Mary. Kay and they tell me the IBM a woman in a room with seventy women and they all get along. And I was like well that I got to sit so that kind of was my history and even though sometimes I've been the single mom sometimes I've been married sometimes. I've been supporting husband's elderly parents. You have to have something to fall back down or it. So direct sales is literally saved my financial life so so many times so I will read hired from Ge Foul my cowboy air to Houston ultimately got married five years ago and it's been the biggest blessing of my life.

Look like a million bucks tab were going to corporate or was here in Houston so in Antica very far and drank my zeal. Quite honestly didn't like the first flavor so if you tried like the first one we have five others if you try them on. You'll like them the problems you but anyhow Jaquez at introduced zeal looked at the compensation looked at those founding principles had and said I need to do caroline caroline great to have you. Have you hope you get something out of our top? This morning Direct sales literally saved my life. I'm in the right place at the right time. Now especially you know who knew two years later. Two and a half years later we'd have this pandemic have a solution so very excited. You know it's interesting. You should mention that because on Mondays on this show daily reset for success at noon. We have a show called work from home. So we're always giving tips on not just jobs but side hustles and and businesses that you could start on your computer so I think that this is probably something you could talk about with. Absurd IDA RESERVE VIDA A survey. Can people make money from their computer? If they're working from home right in absolutely and how would you feel about doing that? So it's just a matter of Sharon having a conversation being genuine in authentic. I guess lured today and just finding out what's going on their lives and do they need something you know. Do they need what you have what I like about you and your company because I know other people in the industry what I like is no one's trying to talk me into making this a business. They just WANNA make sure. I have my zeal customer. They're servicing the as a customer. So I'm I'm so happy I can't even tell you when I want to order more I can go on us a program where they send it to me every month or I can just call you and say hey. I need some and I'd really like lemon lime next time. Oh don't you worry about marrying? I'M GONNA drop it off tomorrow. I'm like Oh great. So you're very accommodating you and the whole company. The people that it attracts are really good healthy. Happy Generous people back to you. Know as you know to be bizzare. She'd have leadership skills to do something like this you snake to take care of people. It's it's all about customer service. I feel taken care of thank you. I'm so glad I'm so glad beautiful because I know this is slightly off topic but when you have a business or a side hustle. Mary loves to call them that. You have tax benefits. I have a friend. Who's always had side hustles? And now she doesn't she doesn't have any deductions. She can't take mileage in mileage. Pays well of course we can do the mileage right now but having this side business helps you in a lot of ways you can even higher your children if you have children of GonNa see if you can get them to label the bibles and you can do that. And the and the IRS will tell you the number one way to save money on your taxes stab a home based business. Well of course you got you know you gotta be able to show that you're actually out doing trainings and keep your customers is reporting You've got to customers. You probably going to have a problem. But if you legitimately no Right off your trips in our conventions usually become the starting point for a vacation right. Most of it's GonNa be business just it. It takes a little tracking but it is the number one where I'm glad you brought that up because it is the best one said one. I know so. Let's spend the next few minutes talking about the checklist of how we can start feeling like. We're in our prime. Yes so that means something different to everyone writes you have to figure out. What do you want to be able to do? What is it that you can't do now? They you WANNA do go. Go Go I want to be able to get up off the floor without you know the elderly. And that's one of the first ones that they worked on. If you fall and you're by yourself and you don't have a call button on your neck. What are you GONNA do? You GonNa lay there until you know. Somebody finally comes to the door. No you have to be able to get up off the floor by yourself and so it's because I'm I'm not old. It's because I'm overweight and I'm mature okay. Oh that's my number one goal that I have is. I want to be able to get up off the floor. So how do I do that? So discouraging you WANNA be able to get out and get some exercise start. You know kind of bloom where you're planted right. If you're not a GIN rap as I call them what do you do do you walk? Maybe WANNA walk more and you need to strengthen that core you need to just go ahead and Google. You know core strengthening exercises something. That's going to help you and you know if you really are concerned maybe you do need that button around your net okay but but if you if you just won't know you need to get in better shape take one day at a time instead. Strengthen the poor doing stretching exercises maintain good posture? Just eat hoping get rest tires which my goal is because just oh. I guess it was about last fall when I was moving my plants in on the porch for the winter I worked all day and I mean I have some heavy plants and at my age. I probably should have had some help but didn't and at the end of the day. I was moving the last few little plants and I think my blood sugar had dropped and I turned around I was bending over and I turned around and fell right on my face on the concrete and I thought what just happened. I didn't know what had happened. It was that quick but luckily I was bending over so I didn't fall that far and concrete was muddy and it was wet. And I'm just laying there. What am I doing? But there was a big potted plant right next to me and I was able to use that to push myself up and I didn't hurt myself. Thank you got. But it's the Tuffy when you get old. How do I get up? Well the thing is you don't have to be old right. There's people there's young people that have blood sugar issues than they have been able to again. Yeah listen to your body you know when you need some extra help right and so again the things Marian I were just talking about is you need to make sure they have the strength to do those things you know. If if you can't do squat so you've kind of get used to get in front from that position and go ahead and get one of those wheeling cards for those plants. Next time we can just come under their head. That's only out. I'm in because I've got some that way. You know fifty to one hundred pounds but these are the little ones I was doing at the end but I was tired and my blood sugar was hungry. Didn't know it and my blood. Sugar just zipped I got up. I finished then I went in was okay. You're okay you're listening to this on a podcast. You may not realize that we have up on the screen. We do live stream on facebook and youtube on your natural curiosity channel. And what I what's running across the screen right now is how to get a hold of dove neighbors so she has an email address. Fine your prime with d d a g mail so that way you can go and check her out unit you have a conversation with her and you can feel like I do taken care of so we also have a website up where you can order your zeal. If you'd like it's Zor Vida Dot com slash deb neighbors slash E. N. slash. Us and spills. They're Vita Zine you're not a zero vita that's so good and so one of the things you forgot to tell us about is the same formula for emergency is the same guy who made this formula that live correct. So when they're Vida went mark McKnight founder of emergency said we want all this in one we want and we wanted to taste good. Because now you're really asking for you. Put All these twenty seven channels you want pathologies vitamins and minerals in any wanted to taste it. Samedan. We need to split them apart. And Mark Jarvis observe e. The said. No I want it to be simple. I wanted to be affordable and I wanted to taste good and so that is how zeal nine years ago actually develops good morning marymount woman. Great name terrific. He's a great lady to why I hope I get to me just someday so anyways so that is how zeal came about on. Now you know in Mexico. We had mango. And we've actually bought mango to the US so every day. They are behind the scenes making our products. Better we're just talking about one product if they did one hundred million dollars with just zeal. The year I cannot so if you can imagine having one product these days in two hundred million dollars businesses phenomenal now. Of course we've added in our transportation system if you want to gain weight gain weight but anyways there are people out there that need to gain way. Irv YOU WANNA lose weight or just whatever you know your prime way is it'll help you in a field performance. So you know the Shawn Watson is our national spokesperson now. If you're not a football lover he's the Houston Texas order back and he loves his company. Echinacea RITA nationwide because of that gentleman and he is just such a a a wonderful young man If he can look his interview about Zubeida. It's it everything's there but we have a whole fuel performance line fuel repair and safer athletes. That's a big concern right so we have. We are certified that offer products is safe. And that's why the Sean can represents. Oh that is huge and the best part and I know 'cause this has always happened to me all of a sudden I'm Oh my gosh I'm almost out and it takes a day or two or three depending on where you are to get your order and then you call them up and then it doesn't come and then you're out. This company has a way of putting it What what do you call that how you can get it every month without thinking about it? That's our preferred customer. So it's a lovely reorder. In cancelling time no obligation and change the flavor but yes you will have your zeal every day without having to think about it when you before you ran out exactly what I do. Is I have a canister at work in the Lemon lime flavor and then I have one at home with the Berry Flavor and that's what it looks like. This is the Berry and I love them. Both I do have a preference. The lemon lime. What that's what Louisiana's I know. That's Louise's favourite west. But it's nice to be able to have it. You know two different flavors you can mix it up you know. Nobody wants to be bored. It using the same flavor every day. Unless it's you know something you really got used to as a child you know like Charlie Johnson okay chocolate. I've never seen that one way of chocolate protein protein for those chocolate holic. So yeah but you know also you could get a canister in twelve bottles and you can get those twelve bottles in different flavors. So that if you're not sure what you like you can order a berry with twelve mix cup of plants and then pick your favorite from there and sheriff because why would you share you know what if you share zeal with three people now. Your zeal is free. And that's what I did with Louise. I shared it with her and she really likes the lemon lime. Yes I do my favorite for sure. What other flavors lemon lime berry and you said Mango Logan Tests May Tropic Dream we have grape kiwi watermelon. So there's something for everyone. I love it because the fresh fruit flavors just so refreshing so tell me tell me why you feel when you drink. Zeal having a good flavor good taste you can get that anywhere out of zeal. Make you feel well. It gives me stamina because I have this little dip in the afternoon and I don't like I have been known to go to sleep in this chair sitting up and not fall out. I know how that works. My husband goes power. Naps our neighbor anyway. It dips have stopped a little one. Because it's just normal in our our bodies ebb and flow. But I don't go to sleep in this chair anymore. Best big and marry him. Oh of course a burst of all the biggest thing for me especially when my friend you know got dehydrated and passed out on the concrete and hurt himself really bad okay. That is one of my third my first testimonials about it is it tastes so good. I WANNA drink it. And so I'm getting my water in Let's face it. If you just hand me. A glass of water is probably GonNa sit there all day and I might take a little sip but I can. I can down the zeal in no time. I made it tastes so good I just WANNA drink it. So that's my I I. I think the second thing is. I think Louise's right. It helps keep my energy up during the day now. I don't really have a problem with the you know sleeping or anything like that but I know that I'm I feel good inside and I know I'm doing something good for my body. I just love it. I love the taste. I love what it does for me and I love how it hydrates me on the website that the studies show that helps with editor-in-chief focus mental clarity and we have the studies behind that so you can actually see the results. We need that now. I did notice because one of the first things Dr Oz was talking about when the Virus was going along is that you need increase your vitamin C. You need to have at least two thousand. whatever's vitamin C. So I looked at emergency he was recommending emergency and I thought okay. Let me see how much vitamin season here. Because that's you know and so I looked on here on the back and it literally says one hundred percent up one. Glass is one hundred percent of your vitamin C. For the day her effect so it makes me feel good. I sound like a commercial that I'm sorry it really does and I love it and you know I do and we love our customers. Marianne so thank you so much. Oh that's what it's all about is sharing like you said if we can't share things what's the good of having them yet. Mary and I can't keep our mouths shut. We have to share. It's true I should be our middle name now. We only have a couple minutes left. You have any other tips for helping us feel in our prime no matter what our age you know. I just can't reiterate enough is don't compare yourself to others. You know. Just look inside. And what makes you feel good and do a journal. I call the gratitude journal and just write down the things you're grateful for and if some things are just like only other loosed any like she's. I wish I could change that figuring out how you can do it. There's plenty of information. There's experts out there in no hall. Marian. Call me. Get some advice on. You know. Just not feeling like I should be able to reach. I think the one thing. That's come out of the social distancing is that we are relationships have become more intense allow. You know I've always been good at building. Relationships with people live are not always thinking about picking up the phone and calling someone and just say how are you doing after doing in this this pandemic? How do you do have it with you all the time? Call Me Okay. Call me cone. You know job is good at that. If I don't call her she picks up the phone. Hey Marion how you doing? I just want to check on you. Like wow how many people do that. You need to do that. To let people know you care so I wrote down some of my list here of what? We talked about today stretching. I think that's a really good idea that doesn't really put exercise in there. It's stretching okay. Stretch bond stretch your muscles all that right get yourself going and move either walk or do some exercise if you're not a gym rat Do get on Youtube and look at some of the exercises. You can do right in your chair about that. Eating Healthier Right here on the List Journal. Deb is not the first person or the last to tell us that we need to get it out of our head onto paper and we don't need to type it. We need to write it in on a piece of paper journal. What you're feeling or your thoughts or your dreams and you know what I had last list. Drink your zeal. Great Hydrate Hydrate. The H. Two O. The sick little Straw. Put it in your water and you can shake intake it. You ask me how we survive in. How did this business basically? It's just in my business. I asked him what they need.

Working Remotely: How the COVID-19 Coronavirus is Pivoting People and the Future of Work

"Inflection point is something that can have a seismic impact what we call a ten x impact on the business model as you know it today. Well we sit back and look at what we're dealing with with. Koby nineteen I would say we are at an inflection point rate now. I'm Dan smolen and this. Is the tight rope. Podcast we tell the stories of people who are defining the future of work. Our guests walked the tightrope away from meaningless toil and towards work that is profound protects. The Planet empowers people. And it's fun to do meaningful work. The Story Center guests tell and the insights with they provide will inspire you to connect with work and experiences that stoke your passions and make the world a better place for the future of work is meaningful work in this episode we revisit. Ceo and founder of pivoting strategies. Carla Fleming Carla first appeared on the tightrope podcast back in two thousand eighteen. We turn to Carla. Because she has tele worked for half of her career and over that time she developed and perfected time management hacks that render the remote workday both productive and successful as a management consultant. Who Studies market trends and business? Best Practices Carla says that the Kobe Nineteen Corona virus has brought us to an inflection point that will permanently change how we work. We spoke with Carla Fleming. Earlier this week by way of skype. So welcome back to the tight. Rope Carla Fleming Dan. It's great to be back. It's great to Great to connect with you from social wish. It were closer. I know I know but hey we're practicing what everybody else is practicing so this should be fun. It should be a will so on this podcast. We talk about the future of work and through your company pivoting strategies you have become an expert of sorts on future work issues especially working remotely and I WanNa know from your informed standpoint. How you think work is changing as a result of Kobe. Nineteen and social distancing. I think it's changing a lot really would say there are three ways. It's changing. It's changing the way we work in. Educate instead of going into the office. Now everybody's learning how to work remotely. I think it's something that entrepreneurs who have started businesses have figured out because the cost of technology has come down to such a point that you can look like a big company operate the same way as a big company in a remote environment. You can find a lot of the same tools that you might have had whether it was email whether it was storage for your files or finding an accounting solution that's affordable but it is in the cloud so it's giving you a window into an entrepreneur has to sink about everything from the technology to the bandwith to what kind of computer and do I have. You know the appropriate technology and it's quite affordable. I think from an education standpoint. I empathize with the parents. I within sympathize with the parents that are dealing with this. Because now they're multitasking. It totally different way. You may have been multitasking at work. Where you might have been on a call you might have been answering email or responding to somebody on slack or instance messaging. And now you've got this additional component whether it's you and a spouse sharing a computer and somebody has to share time kind of like when we back in the sixties when we had didn't have enough high schools or whatever people kind of time shifted naming. Some folks were go to school in the morning from you know maybe eight to two one and then the rest of the students would go to school from one to five. Well we're back in a way to figuring out how to manage our time smartly so I think a lot of the folks that have kids at home. The priority will be yeah. I need to work. But you're going to have to time shift to address how you do that. Meaning you may work in the morning. Get up early instead of having a commute in all that in the morning you may go do your workout and come back to some work then. The kids need to be online for school. Say Thirty so maybe between then and say noon. You're working with the kids to get them on board. If their teacher isn't engaged you've got to figure out how to get them to in a way become very disciplined about sitting down. Just like you is the adult to to get work done so I think that's huge trying to find resources to help parents because now you are. The teacher not necessarily the teacher in the classroom. And now you have to teach so you know where your strengths are and you know what your weaknesses are. How do you find the resources to do that? I think the second thing that's really challenging with Kobe. Nineteen is mental health. That's a big one. I feel like folks are struggling to figure out. How do I make this thing work? Meaning working from home but then depending on the size of your house you may be very close to each other. So it's hard to find a way to get work done in other cases your distance but the thing is you're not you're used to having a routine and that routine is disrupted so now you have to create a new routine somewhat similar to what you had somewhat different because of the environment you're in and then it's like well. How do I if you're very much if you're an extrovert or even if you're an introvert you still want to talk to people? Now how do you talk to people? And then the third thing I would say is companies are now having to have a remote working strategy where they didn't necessarily have to before so give me an example. Just did some research looking at how people are thinking about remote and Gartner is getting a law calls from companies saying. How do I do this remote thing? And what Gartner is finding. Is that one sort of folks con. Asada had some capability out there for working remote in third head. No remote plan. Sure it this way. Two-thirds of companies based on what Gartner seeing don't have Abramov plan or have a very limited remote plan and now all of a sudden you're having to scale up to a hundred percent remote on top of that people were thinking they didn't need their. Vpn virtual private network and then they can just get rid of because what the VPN does is allows you to encrypt messages. Email all that stuff sending and receiving so. If you're a large enterprise like I was when I was working for. Ibm You didn't sign onto IBM systems without signing onto the VPN. I and so that is encryption. At security you know with all the cyber security attacks very much needed I still have a VPN. Even you know for myself. I went to my local wherever I have my smartphone service. I use I said I need a VPN. Because it's not safe to be transmitting and sitting in your local coffee shop in getting on their WIFI and thinking that your communication is secure. 'cause it's not so for me it was just good practice to have a VPN so those are the three things. I think that are really changing. Is how we work how we educate Howie think about mental health and then companies actually have to have a strategy. Can't ignore it anymore. So you mentioned a few things. You mentioned time management in which is super critical especially given the fact that people with children at home who are now learning are sharing resources you also have place management not not. Everybody lives in mcmansions. I have mentioned to you. I live in about a thousand twelve hundred square feet. So we've got time. And we've got placed. That is a lot of heavy lifting for people who are not used to like you or I remote working so my question to you is. How do you help somebody scaffold into that? Especially when all of a sudden they're learning about Webex skype and zoom and how to dress this set so to speak so that it doesn't look like they've got drawing laundry hanging behind then during a session. I know okay so I have worked remotely behalf of my career. And so that means I've worked remotely when I've had been based in the US. And I've worked with my peers in the company all over the country. I've worked remotely globally so I've sat in the US. And I've really run the clock so meaning when I was dealing with your I. Was You know eight o'clock? That was the first call. So you had to be at your desk at eight to get going and then You know by noon. I was done with them and then by one noon or one o'clock I was on with the US team and so we go till about five. Then you know depending on daylight saving time sometimes I was twelve hours a H- you know. Twelve out Asia was twelve hours ahead or fourteen. Then I might be on at like seven eight nine o'clock at night talking to Asia and I did that for literally that global position for five years so it didn't allow for a life outside the thank you could do much in the evening But it also made a challenging. You know during the day you know you knew you had to be somewhere and you had to live by that calendar. So the first thing I'm GonNa say is nothing gets done without it getting on the calendar and I literally mean that even when I'm out prospecting or networking or sitting down with a client. It's like pull out your calendar. Let's get on the calendar. What's your deal ability? And so I've been very structured with having to counter and I say that to say in a remote environment you don't have time for the casual conversation. Because we're social distancing and people and depending on the size of the company the bigger the company the more meetings there are and the more there you could be double and triple book. I mean there were times when I've seen executives sit on to calls because he needed to be on both and so they're sitting on their cell phone and they're sitting on their phone and they're sitting on her laptop conducting business right so your ability to manage your calendar in a remote environment is number one. If you don't master that you're going to be in trouble so introduce yourself to your outlook. Calendar g mail calendar. Whatever that thing is and get really good at being your own secretary in terms of scheduling. You have to make sure you have availability. There were times. I would block off my calendar so I could go heads down now sometimes. You can do it sometimes. You can't but you gotTA block in time to actually do work. I would say having accountability partner. Now this is something that I learned by being in the entrepreneur space and I think it really works. I have a couple of accountability partners. I don't just sit around with wine. I have different ones for different reasons. But what it does is it gives you community so schedule. Your Accountability Partner Meeting. So if you're in a work environment and you're working remote. Who's the person you work the closest with schedule an hour a week thirty minutes? Whatever that thing is and have a standing meeting that you all commit to making in that. Everybody works around that allows you to have community that allows you to check into say. How're you share tips on how you're surviving but also it allows you to work on projects and get projects done? I find that I need those accountability meetings because I need community at the same time so it does double duty but I also say really work hard at having a established start in in time so one of the things I do is I have a paper journal which I use which has a calendar in it and I know I said. That's one of my accountability partners. He couldn't believe I had handwritten journal and I said I know it sounds. We are in the age of electronics to have one of these. But I'm actually going to tell you you need to get one because it makes you more efficient so I'll give an example on Sunday afternoons or Sunday evening. I will sit down and map out what my week looks like so I will take into account what time I'm getting up with time you know. Is there exercise involved? What time do I expected to get started? What do I WANNA do first thing in the morning and roll out the rest of the day? When do I have lunch all that stuff and I roll that in and then I kind of figure out what I WANNA in now? Am I perfect at a hearing to my end date in time? No but it helps me organize. What are the key things I want to get done for the week? The reality is you should have no more than three things on your list to get done for the week. Meaning big major projects. You still may have other things that are smaller tasks log those as well and just log in the days because some days. You're going to have more time. You can play catch up other times. You may fall behind because an emergency comes up. You gotta deal with it but your ability to map out if you're working at home with kids. What time do you want to kids sitting down at the table to start doing their work? When do you WANNA have lunchtime? When do you want to break to go out in the backyard and run around or go take a walk? When do you want to get back? Who's cooking dinner? Which night you and your partner may be trading off so that the other partner can get more work done or at six o'clock calls. They need to get on. But your ability to schedule those things out into managed yourself to that is going to be huge then. The last thing I'll say is make sure you have time for lunch. I used to sit at my desk and eat lunch and work all the way through that old pretty fast. What I now knew about twelve hundred space houses. Well I go downstairs to eat. The mere fact of changing perspective and location for fifteen twenty thirty minutes. Our helps tremendously when I come back upstairs and I'm ready to get to work. I've had a chance to stretch chance to walk of had a chance to maybe talk to family member. It's all of those things that you still know that you're human unique to engage you. Just change who. You're engaging with for that period of time so I think those things have helped me offer that up to others to say you can survive this and you can actually thrive in this environment. Because you're able to. You don't have a commute. I'm going to add another thing. Get Out of your jammies put on work clothes. There's something about wearing the clothing of despair. That does not set you up for a good day. Put on the kinds of clothes that you would normally put on if you're going out shopping or being seen by the public there's something about putting on day close that. I don't know if you WANNA call it armor but it does set your mind straight my friend billy who we interviewed last week. He makes his bed every day. That's part of his regime. But you you have to have like you say structure and regime in your life. Time Management Place Management People Management Mental Health Management as. You mentioned to make this all work and I like your point about getting dressed because I finished up a online program on speaking and we had to be on zoom twice a week visual so you couldn't sit there with your name up there. It's like unless you're your wife. I was not great but they want to see you of course and I thought that was really important. I enjoyed it because you know yes I get rest and I kind of wear casual clothes but if I were to get online with a client I would be a little bit more dressed or a little bit more polished and I think that's important because you can get too comfortable in disrespect your role in your job and yourself. If you don't take this seriously so Carl I wanNA pivot no pun intended no pun intended so pivoting strategies your company which you founded and you are a CEO of I described as being on the nexus of data analysis and compelling storytelling so the idea behind that is your clients. Gather a lot of data which you help to turn into actionable information. But you don't stop there. You actually help people to craft stories about the brand and the enterprise and how that brand benefits and relates to people so with that in mind I wanted to ask you to talk about the relationship between data and storytelling. Now that we are all sheltered in place home in social distancing for mother's house it all changing. What things do you think are going to become permanent and perhaps even better than we had before Cova Nineteen descended upon us? Oh I think there's a lot so the way I look at data isn't a couple of different ways. I think we spent a lot of time. In industry talking about KPI key performance indicators expend a lot of time looking at are lagging indicators like return on investment like cost of acquisition or click through rates. Right those give us a window into the past performance. And that's what we are constantly measuring ourselves against then we look at the second type of indicator which is current indicators so that way being well with the cash flow that we're generating from certain products or a product launch as of a specific date like it might be today or or whatever and so you know it might be also how many people do we have registered for an event today you know. We're looking at registration numbers. Those give us a window into going on today in. What's that story? The third indicator. I think that folks do not spend enough time looking at putting on their plate and making a conscious effort in their cadence meetings to sit there and really think about in grapple with our what I call leading indicators and what are leading indicators. Well they're really first of all they're not KPI's they're not key performance indicators. Instead they're what I call stories so they give you a window into the future and they're not things that you think would go together. They're not a story all put together. It's a lot of different things. Different activities trends. They're not facts. Yet they conjecture with what these indicators look like but at the end of the day they come together depending on how you look at them could begin to tell you a story about something that is considered an inflection point an inflection point is something that can have a seismic impact what we call a ten x impact on the business model as you know today. Well we sit back and look at what we're dealing with with Kobe. Nineteen I would say. We are at an inflection. Point right now so when we look at those leading indicators if we just take this covert nineteen and say how could we have spotted this or at least begun to think about it as a business and had a remote plan in place or if we are thinking about delivery services? How could we have known that this was going to be a big deal? And sometimes those leading indicators job is stories but I'll give you an example of some leading indicators that were out there so for the past what fifteen years we had the technology or the technology has to has developed enough to allow us to work from home. And it's built up enough of an ecosystem so think about this zoom which everybody is using right now with established in two thousand eleven. Webex nineteen ninety five. Webex is well out of corporations use a lot of smaller organizations will use zoom. And then if you think about skype it was built in two thousand and three all right so that part of the ecosystem has been there since at least nineteen ninety five and it's been constantly improving. Price has come down. Availability and access has come down is spread across the country to think about the fact that ninety six percent according to Pew Research Ninety six percent of Americans have a smartphone. Then think about the fact that between two thousand twenty fifteen we've had a series of epidemics and pandemics around the world so we had SARS which was in two thousand to two thousand three h one n one which was the two thousand nine flu pandemic and Moore's two thousand twelve or two thousand fifteen in multiple iterations this Kobe. Nineteen it's just a continuation of what we've been experiencing out in the world for the past twenty years and then think about the fact that the home delivery strategy for restaurants which we now see a ton of restaurants that refuse to do home delivery or didn't want to get on. The APP are now jumping on but think about the companies that were Grub home established two thousand four and it's the largest in the country. Dora Dash established two thousand thirteen posts. Mates established two thousand eleven uber. Eats established two thousand fourteen. So we've had some type of delivery service available for the past sixteen years so that infrastructure has developed and it's there to other things. I want to highlight online education with coarser. You Deputy Khan Academy General Assembly K. Twelve. It's been around for years even universities if they've done executive education programming to make more money for the university. It's been there blackboard. It's been around for at least ten fifteen years and then think about this. This is what I thought was really interesting. We're now dealing with hospitals having made the transition to electron IQ records and making the transition to electronic prescriptions. Well guess what telehealth and telemedicine have at least been around. Since eighteen seventy nine for Tele Health when the Lancer Journal suggested using the telephone instead of office visits to help to serve patients and tele medicine has been around at least since nineteen o six as a concept so different pieces of this infrastructure. Were already there. It wasn't until Kovin pushed us to work remotely that were now leveraging all of these components and that's huge so as leading indicators. All this stuff was frost to look at the challenge. Was How do we? As companies is businesses organizations. Think about it and embrace it so going back to that Gartner example. Think about the fact that two thirds of companies did not embrace this technology. And now we are because we're pushed into it. And that's what I feel like leading indicators create for us is this opportunity to think about our business and in what trends are there but inflection points are what force us to change the way our business model works. And that's what's happening right now. We're having two weeks of panic. Fear whatnot but in another week or two people are going to settle into a new routine. That's the interesting thing about this. We're never going back and to me. That's a plus scary. But a lot of things are GonNa Change Carla. I really appreciate the time with you today.

"We still estimate that the majority of all spending that goes to newspapers or that goes to magazines goes to print and we don't think that those shares will tip in favour of digital until on the newspaper side twenty, twenty two. Gang it's Thursday October twenty seconds Nicole Mark Oscar as more everybody an over this news. Welcome to the behind the numbers daily meemaw passport to by site core. I am for the rest of my life Marcus Johnson I'm joined on the line by four people we have joining us to pursue analysts. One of them is coordinate coal parents she is the host of the AD. Platform another other behind the numbers show also principal analyst covering everything drive technology. Hey Mark F. Hello. That joined by familiar voice on the weekly listen. It's Mr mom deliver who's a principal analyst covering demographics party. Hello Sir Rossi joined by C. Focusing analyst Oscar a ROSCO. Thank you for having me hey buddy and finally we have on June four costing analyst Nonsmo- Islam. Welcome? Buddy. Hey Chap suck. Today's topic what happens to print during a pandemic. Emma Cotton Brights on Vermont Nonprofit News Site Support Viti. Giga. Good name. The many local publishes are quote stepping forward with the knowledge that redes- hungry four clear expensive reporting about some of the most sobering issues in recent memory a dangerous virus plankton Konami reckoning with institutional racism and an impending election close quote. So there is a lot read this year a lot of news to ingest and Digest. So let's start with how newspaper circulation has been doing this year I guess we're GONNA say Prince quiet lot what we mean there is newspaper and magazine so Yeah newspaper, Print magazine circulation how has it been doing as of late so Circulation numbers I mean they keep getting. Getting harder and harder to come by must say, but you know there is some good data. There's probably not a good sign in general. Good sign good sign. It's definitely been something. We've we've tracked for a long time and it just gets harder and harder. But we there's some some data if the data's usually a couple years behind read. So we have some two thousand eighteen data from newspaper Association of America Lions for other than media news media. Alliance whether it's showing is really a decline of eight and nine percent respectively for weekday and Sunday circulation. This doesn't include digital. So the print only is down even further twelve percent and thirteen percent for weekday and Sunday print. So. BOOSTING, bad numbers for a while. Now, do they include the major papers? The major national papers? That's that's a good question they actually do not include the New York Times. A Wall Street Journal or Washington Post was. So we'd know these numbers would be a lot worse Okay. Yeah. It's a good reflection of the other guys, right because a lot of the times when we talk about papers, we're talking about the whole names household chores, but we're not joking about though the other guys though the local papers. So that's good to to get these kinds of numbers. Exactly. So Oscar in light of some of these readership numbers, these numbers being down you've been making some adjustments. When was the last adjustment to our focus was October or April? So we we we've made adjustments to our time spent forecast in April. So we did account for you know the the covert affected early on but you know we do feel like our numbers you know stand pretty well for themselves and Yeah. We we essentially especially on. The print front we we expect there to be significant drop in Twain Twenty readership as everything is really shifting online i. mean that's been the story for years now, but Cova is pretty much pushing that even quicker, right. So everything's kind of moving online even quicker than we had anticipated readership numbers specifically for newspapers are we have it is down to about thirty five point five percent of the population reading newspapers, and this is once a month at least and you know some of this is due. To the just the lack of commuting time but but also circulations being down people there there isn't there was and continues to be a fear a little bit of maybe getting the virus when the kind of touching now whether it's male or newspapers or magazines. So that's also something has impacted these readership numbers. Yeah. You had a survey from Blue Toad, right? Yes. Showing the the concerns about cashing the virus from a physical Paper Journal magazine as you said, newspaper readership down third of people that of Americans. Stu Ninety one million people how do you guys read those numbers? Is that still quite a sizable audience? I mean seventy percent of the country used to read a newspaper in two, thousand ten now a third of the country do but it's still ninety one million people that still. Roughly the same amount of people who listening to podcasts or something as as a current or futuristic as this type of a medium. How do you guys look at those numbers if it were steady or getting bigger than we look at it differently from the way we do. This is Oscar says it's just going down and down and it was going down already before the pandemic that's pushing it down more so Yes, it's a substantial number now, bit getting a smaller every year. Also I mean newspaper Readership skews old. So you know that these folks are my fellow boomers were dying off and and I, am a little twist I. You know the the boomers during the pandemic sort of had to learn to become more digital. So even when the pandemic is over, they may be a little less likely to to to go back to to reading a print newspaper they were before. Oscar. How how is? Trending over the next couple of the because it seemed to me as though it was kind of. Stabilizing somewhat I mean still kind of creeping downwards but not dropping from the heights that we've seen over the last decade. Yeah I mean it is stabilizing the bidding and because this precipitous drop to twenty twenty, it's it's a couple of percentage points. It's not anything crazy. We do expect the slight little. Bump up you know next year as is you know people commute back into the offices are a little more of the newsstand purchases of newspapers one off purchases, things like this. but it definitely is flattening a bit but it's still going down I mean we still project in the coming years for for these numbers you know to to drop a little bit. So kind of no end in sight necessarily, we were not ready to forecast that sixty two percents of folks used to read a magazine in twenty. Ten. Now thirty percents of people reading magazines still seventy seven million people also quickly the engagement as well. Engagement being hallowed people spend with papers. We're forecasting average time spent per day reading the newspaper by Americans in two, thousand, ten, forty, five minutes spent. Cruising. Through the paper. That's fallen is now twenty seven minutes. Spent reading reading the paper to. That's not bad. Is it in terms of engagement in terms of time spent cruising through news payment but newspapers haven't got smaller or bigger but I imagine still got similar number of pages. So if you're an advertiser. Relative amount of minutes engaging with a newspaper attention span seems to have completely disappeared in terms of every other. Thing that we engage with in terms of reading the paper, it seems like people who are going to read it again and read it sure. But so I would argue that time spent with you know up for example, smartphones over three hours compared to that you know we're seeing all the shifts to video whether it's subscription video advertising video on demand platforms, things like this, the time spent. On these platforms are growing so and so fast that quickly, the print sort of a portion of that is becoming so tiny you know I, think that's kind of how you have to think of it I. I would also put it in perspective and a little bit different way and say that our average daily time spent with print is very close to our average daily spin with facebook. But it's clear that facebook is much much much better at monitoring that time via ads than print media are at this point. Are More valuable. I totally agree with then and we spoke about this earlier but one thing that keep in mind for example, the time said they had two hundred and forty million unique visitors internationally and I think this was in March, a lot of it due to the corona virus But if you look at their revenues, I, mean subscriptions have continued to fall. There are one of the few few sort of newspapers that have done. Okay. So it's just kind of it's not correlating right? Even if they're getting all these viewers and readers, it doesn't mean that they're making any money Yeah. This look the Times is a as a case study New York Times they had over six million subscribers as revenue started to fall. So. Yeah. The widespread interesting coronavirus coverage pulled in over six hundred, thousand digital subscribers and key one twenty, twenty, two act business has been struggling. So some of those numbers in Q. One overall ad revenue was down fifteen percent touch over one hundred, million dollars digital's down eight down twenty one overall subscription revenue did grow by five percents in Q. One total was pretty much dead even zero a little bit. Interestingly though times print subscriptions, they fell eight percents in key one, but they still the print subscription still account for most of subscription and add revenue. So in one print subscriptions, business made one hundred and fifty, five, million dollars digital was one thirty and wise print made fifty five, million dollars digital fifty one. So prince still still doing his thing. In Q. Two Q. to revenues were down seven and a half percent. Subscription. Revenue was up eight add revenue was down forty four percent. What do you guys make of how the Times is doing and how much this? Model, they've been able to do on the subscription side on the digital side could be a blueprint for particular other national papers. Back. Out of the Times a little bit I and just talk about that. The AD. Revenue Split between print and digital I mean, that's pretty typical. Still you know in general used to hear a lot of things about a print ad dollars compared to digital dimes and Basically, the prices for these digital ads have always been much lower. So even as the volume of consumption has flipped to the digital side. The ad revenue just hasn, and so even though we have estimated years and years and years of double digit decreases for print newspaper print magazine AD spending alongside increases in spending on their digital properties. We still estimate that the majority of all spending that goes to newspapers or that goes to magazines goes to print and we don't think that those shares will tip in favour of digital until on the newspaper side twenty, twenty two and on the magazine side twenty, twenty three. And and yeah, you know turning just specifically to the times we've talked before about obviously, we've talked lots about the time is being like a big success as far as a newspaper making revenue on digital. Media. Properties. But we've also talked about how the fact that you know now that the Times is making a of its revenue from digital, it's a down to print declining and also be down to the increasing importance of subscriptions as opposed to ads, and it's their subscription strategy that's been so successful on digital on the past couple of years. Worth they do have a an innovative ads strategy as well that I wouldn't want to write off. They have spent a long time building out their own proprietary infrastructure and proprietary data segments so that they're. You know they're trying to compete with the likes of facebook on that playing field there. Their own ads through essentially their own AD technology now You said the criticises still doing its thing but I think in life Nicole's you're saying I mean. The other way to say it is that the digital is or failing to do its thing. As a revenue generator. Advertising and So much I think that the shift that that Nicole describing from. Add revenue to subscription revenue is what supports these things that may be part of a broader tragedy we see in some ways does the same thing with digital video that you know I'll people just watching Traditional Free TV you know spending some money to watch something they. They WanNa Watch on digital. So we all kind of A. A larger trend going on. Yeah. The key thing in in their innings really is that the subscription revenue up five point four percent in these unprecedented times. But nonetheless, they were able to leverage that into a much on the ads side with digital ad revenues dropping eight. You know so and considering all the you know the circumstances it's just you know doesn't bode well for future earnings. Yes. Subscription revenues as Oscar set up five percent in key one up. Eight percent in. Cute to NONSMO- you've worked on a US print AD spending numbers recently. So this zoom out and take the them as a whole. How much money is being made from a print on the ads side and breaking that down by newspaper magazine as well is Nicole said, we've been expecting a big declines over the last few years. There's not just district because of the pandemic. Princeton going down for a while. Now specifically for this year in twenty twenty, we're expecting Trinh odd revenue to be around twelve billion dollars by the end of twenty twenty dot to drop off from around fifteen and a half billion in two thousand, nineteen specifically for newspaper and twenty twenty were expecting it to be about five point eight billion dollars in for magazine were expecting it to be also five point eight, million dollars but overall has got decline around negative twenty, five percent this year. So it's only a bright look for it. Honestly as everyone else to talk about fake the main reason you even Is, just because of trustworthiness. Like really a key down the newspaper side of things, the main reason people go to newspaper. So obviously not to get to get to news gold like with the latest things happening obsolete cavity? WanNa know what? New measures coming across countries what the doctors are saying, what people could be expecting to happen policy changed but a recent trend really is that social media's becoming more and more looked at for news and initiate problem social media even they've always had articles in Click People. Can Really Trust so for media. But. They're getting there is a quote unquote fake news but I've seen like surveys over the even like last few months definitely over the last couple of years more and more people trusting what they're seeing on tasted like facebook twitter even read it and as more people sought to trust like news, they're getting through those kind of sites i. think it's really troubling for newspapers. like if if they're trustworthy level is Sunday Nasimul going Oscar, I was just GonNa ask you you think there's been just a loss of prestige right that that gap is used to be much bigger. People said Hey I'm only going to look at these high end sort of newspaper publications, but there's there's been a loss of prestige of that. These newspapers continue to see exactly at. A high up towards like where like the only good. Informative like journalistic news out there You know we'd have to worry about. Digital avenues where people are getting other forms of newsroom. But now yet like the gap is much smaller, keeps closing as time goes by. So I think that's your biggest concern and they can have to try to account that some form. In some way I wanNA, talk a bit about people getting used from some of these social media platforms and talk about the relationship between big tech and papers. So the competition and markets authority in the UK regulator said in the past two years big tech. has basically away forty percent of online traffic going to national newspapers. Calculations and the economists have quotes saying data from Benedict Evans who writes technology newsletter shows that newspapers in America have been losing share of AD dollars to TV since the nineteen fifties long before the web. So how much can we actually blame big tech for the downfall of of newspapers and people getting more than us on those platforms and what's going to be their relationship going forward? Particularly inappropriate. Just blame big tack when I think the point about. Newspaper Ad Revenue Getting into way to TV is really good but but just even in terms of digital, like a lot of this is down to craigslist. This is like a long standing trend newspapers and perhaps magazines but especially newspapers because of historically contingent reasons had a monopoly on getting information to people in the world that they just don't anymore and so there's just not as much of a reason to advertise with them for lots of things and classifieds were kind of the the big first thing that that really really. Changed with digital and again, that was really about craigslist much more than what we would call big tech. Now, of course, the situation now is a little bit different, but you know just even in terms of that point about the the the turning down of traffic to news media it's like well, I mean they're they're sending you traffic to begin with right they weren't doing that before they existed I mean for for me I think the question boils down to, and that's why this this can be a little bit controversial but. How important is it to us or to society for these newspapers to do do we need them to survive or should we just kind of let you know the economics handle themselves and maybe we don't need these traditional is regarded publications to survive. I. Don't know that's really went question becomes at least for more icy remain also be the case that we do need them but there's not. A good way of keeping them alive I. Mean you don't want. To be a survey, a government subsidy and In some ways I mean it's Kinda Nice when something very rich person comes along and buys a paper that's willing to lose money on it but There are problems with having. Rich. Guys being the the ultimate purveyors of of our news. So So see I mean it's there's no good solution to this problem, but it is a problem. Yeah, and to the extent that that people think it's been somewhat solved by the life of the New York Times with their recent digital subscription success I think the thing about those subscriptions is that they're they're driven by brand and loyalty and. You know not our former idea of a more objective type media. You know that came about because the the customer there are to an accent was the advertiser who who wanted something that would have the broadest appeal possible. But these publications are no longer trying to have the broadest appeal possible, and that means that we're probably not going to have the same idea of the the national paper of record that we've traditionally thought of the New York Times as I agree I think it's it's tough to expect. Anyone to sort of emulate the success of the New York Times or something like that right I don't think we can have many of those I was GonNa say one thing to the group I. I've heard some comparisons with the success of the subscription or at based video audio platforms things like that. Do you think it's fair to expect the you know this is a fair comparison to to compare yeah. These these print publications to the audio and video guys who thinks that the market for quality information is as big as the market for pop music. Like silly silly idea. I agree with you. That the newspapers businesses is kind of original sin with leading this P. Free for for for years and thinking they supported with ad revenue rather than from the outset getting people habitue to do paying some money for for this quality product they were providing so. It was definitely a kick themselves in the knee. Referee outs definitely. Yeah. Just the perceived value in video and audio is completely different than than I think printer like information versus entertainment in some ways it's an interesting comparison but I'm not sure it's fair. Another circumstances people have a genuine need for really high quality information typically for business reasons that they are willing to pay for potentially a lot. So I think that you know that's not Newspaper, necessarily, although I think that does apply to the Wall Street Journal on but but I think that is another route for digital media lots of new digital media ventures are successful along those lines like, for example, the information and I think it's also pretty popular root for people doing independent things on like sub stack these days. Gave Nicola saying. What is about where Oscars initial point where I don't think print media itself needs to survive or those kind of industries but just their practices in like their reliability. The way that you know you can trust information that you're getting from them as well. Research. It's like fact checked and everything like that where like Nicole said the people who are after information news we get, it's never gonna be as popular anything like pop music or mainstream ideas. Just, getting. Fun Stuff but. The people who want news wanted information they're out for the reliability of it and we need those kinds of forms survive even if it comes to like digital for me to know that are the people behind the scenes game formation reliable, and if we could do that or difference media, then I'm all for it reliability. Also, the speed I think is interesting point hair, which is the if you get the print newspaper from times versus digital is still the Times. When I get the print newspaper as soon as as soon as the afternoon starts to happen I know that this stuff in there is old and her by still like consuming the print because I know there's not going to be any ads attacking my is. All over the place and I can just read it. It's fine I finish it is the end of the paper, and then I don't is the news never ends online. Realistically Lake doesn't that sort of make print sound better and how Useful Humus. Putting it. Yeah. I feel like that's just like you know things change and we're like, what are you way things used to be because you know when initially I'm going way back printing I are happened with the printing press people are saying all of our everyone's go blind because of all this time people wasting reading, we shouldn't be reading are memorizing things like the the old days but so every time media changes is always like a counter argument against like. Better the way that used to be I think you know social media now everyone like we talked about like time. Spanish so few on each Pacific thing the defending allow time on their phone they're looking at a bunch of different stuff and they're like God it's going to grow people's brains and whatnot because no one's focused on anything anymore it's just the way people adapt over time he was their use absorbing allowed formation at once now. So as long as they know better, society were absorbing reacting experiencing outright cycle day after day. More. Share. Your optimism. Are Not. Turning. To Mush but. They are heard this article mark. Is the old. The. Young. Join you mark. The of the millennials. Almost here. So US PRINT AD spending way to look at it as Nosema was saying, this is GonNa be twelve billion dollars as also five percent of total media AD spending five percents just ten years ago. It was twenty five percents of the Pie from twenty five to five over the last decade in terms of its slice of the Pie It seems as though prince is going to be the last thing to be brought back into senior marketers Ting channel mix according to some research from the World Federation of advertises. With video and display coming back quite quickly influence point of SAO TV prince a lot further down in terms of being considered again. There's a good note from the Communist Oscar we're reading for this episode saying the question of who pays for public interest journalism remains announced it but few think it ought to be Google and facebook that would undermine the principles of an independent press says Alice picked whole of Enders Analysis Research Company curbing the power of big tech is a matter for the world's trust busters which must not be conflated with bailing out press barons. Survival of newspapers should depend on business not regulation like the gossip merchants of Saint Paul's. Cathedral. In London they need to produce a product that read is a happy to pay a fair price for can they is the big question? Right I want anyone to try and tackle that question.

We're back today in other news fashion advertisers rediscovered black models, millennials in decision making roles and Tiktok as apparently overtaken instagram as American teams. Second Favorite Social Platform. Story one a piece in the New York Times by Ruth Laugh earlier titled Fashion Advertisers Rediscover Black. Models in the four our campaigns race conscious casting now matters is it progress or is it cynicism she continues? Quote black models have often made token appearances in fashion campaigns as part of a multi-cultural mix times change health crisis combined with a summer of civil unrest and protests against racism has forced a shift in mindset. Close quote mark as our demographics lease has it how advertisers in your opinion looking at rice and casting this point. I think in a way that the contest of progress and cynicism someone falls from I, think it's progress cynicism now leads these people to to cast a more diverse. A bunch of models I, mean that they there's been a shift in what they think is good for their business and and now they realize that the being more inclusive you know it is a way that they'll continue making money so. I it's not progress of a a highly unenlightened kind but it's more durable progress since it's kind of rooted in their desire to make money and their conviction that this is the way to do is get Oscar. Yeah I agree maybe I'm just being naive but I you know it's also one of those situations where it's damned if you do them if you don't, you know I it. If it appears that he now we're moving in the right direction folks on inclusivity I would say we've talked about body positivity and and now you know with including models of all if. I mean, you know, let's give credit where it's due and I'd like to think that this is kind of a step in the right direction and it will continue to see this David? Lipman. A veteran creative director was quoted in the OSCO saying we may see a substantial rise in black models visibility. By hope, it's not a temporary cover all base uptick to according to be international three quarters of millennials are now in decision making rose for the companies there was much more likely to use digital channels to become aware of and learn about brands mark It's also true that millennials are making decisions not just for the company's butt heads of households as well. How should we be viewing this generation at the moment? How much have they grown up on the BBC side? The articles talking about I mean. Yes. It is true that the more of them are moving into at least roles or there someone influencing decisions but I would say I in that sector The Gen xers are the ones that the advertisers should really be paying attention to the people were kind of running things. Now, they're gonna be running things for a little while before before they're ready to retire I would I mean I talked about boomers versus. millennials, but the Gen xers the ones I think me to be honest is there should be looking at a consumer side Yeah. I mean, let meals finally. Finally we're we're becoming steriod adult heads of Fowley household moving to the suburbs owning houses. Now. The the Dan pandemic comes along and I think that that's You know given them quite a bad hit. So obviously, I mean address NEAT NEAT needed to deal with the, but they're going to be a less lucrative audience Then they ought to have been right now again, I the great recession. We're just never going to have money. That's how it is Nicole. As far as how how far have millennials come I class myself with mark is one of the old in this. Just willing to join the boomer. Older. Generations Lico. With You If I could it would actually I prefer to be the breakaway Oregon trail generation, which I think Marcus you're probably also a part of. Yes true. Story Three takes because apparently overtaken instagram as American teens. Second favorite social platform after snapchat according to Piper Sandler thirty, four percent of US teenagers said snapchat was their favorite social media platform twenty, nine percent. Said Tiktok and twenty five percent said instagram. TIKTOK was in a distant third place. Just this past spring has since. Overtaken instagram for second place mark is this a changing of the guard moment for teens social priorities well. Interesting, you used the word moment because. You. Is this something that's going to last and We. We sort of knew that the teens were really serious about instagram when they sort of having a a faster of the fake instagram called all. I really. Cared about most. So. I think we'll know that the the tick tock is really here to stay with teams I if we start hearing about people having a a thick talk and. But that hasn't happened to you. We'll be watching to see if it does. Nasr more as a young person that doesn't really use audrey much I. think it's still like a trendy fame tiktok. It's Kinda like recapturing whole viniculture. We had a couple of years back or just people posting like viral videos in getting stuff to trend at the moment. It's hard to say that this is GonNa last for a while stabbed giants have been there spot for a good bit especially with all the political controversy surrounding So it's a Nice Winter Tiktok here, but I don't think it's GonNa Country Lash going forward I thought you were going to say as the one young enough to actually use.

Please tell me. I was not the only one who did that on the school bus and we had a good laugh at how funny kids are. But the truth is that. I've always loved little things whether it be quizzes or goal setting or even just jotting down wild dreams and i also love me a good personality tests. I have vivid visceral memories of laying flat on the floor of my childhood bedroom scribbling through every personality tested vine in might issue ab- seventeen or by magazine of cosmo girl and i mean those days. Those are the best. Where would any of us be. If we hadn't taken those quizzes. Like what chapstick flavor would you be or what friends character are you or which disney character are likely to mary. I'm going quick down memory lane here. I used to love those little quizzes so much. I can literally close my eyes and feel those smooth pages of the magazine and smell the dkny apple samples right now. Now if you're listening to this and nodding your head. I know we'd get along. There's just something special about finding new things even those silly nonsensical quizzes from our teenage lifestyle magazines. There's a reason as editors please them in every single issue there simply irresistible. While i used to love the playfulness of quizzes and finding out who was vacation spot. And what kind of lottery i would be. It's evolved into my appreciation for the grittier deeper personality tests. These days like. I love finding out about the things that make me tick.

Let's call them at cosmo girl quizzes emotional vulnerability style now. I know i'm definitely not alone in this either. I followed tons of accounts on instagram geared towards different assessments.

Let's start with the oji. The good ole introvert versus extrovert label. I'll go ahead and guess here that most of us all have a pretty solid understanding of our personality types when it comes to being introverts and extroverts right some of us like leading the room in showing up loud in some i might be a little more comfortable working behind the scenes and showing up and quieter ways. Plus there are a lot of us who are a little mix both as i've grown up and grown into myself more. I feel like i've shifted growing up. I always wanted to be an extrovert. I wanted to be seen as someone with lots of friends and lots of laughter. All the time and i got so much joy and energy from doing all those things now. I'm way more introverted than i used to be. Like i still love my friends. I just keep a really tight circle. But i've learned that my energy comes to me in the form of alone time like. Give me a book and a glass of wine and maybe book a weekend alone at a hotel like. That's my van is e. I also used to be firmly in the camp. That being an extrovert was where it's at you know i saw extroverts is the gold standard for people which is honestly like hilariously silly. I think so. Many of us have the idea in our heads at extroverts are the bright and shiny ones while introverts are the shying quite ones and simply not the case there's so many benefits to both camps in having a grasp on which personality type yuling towards can really inform the way that you show up for things. I think the key here is using your introvert or extrovert legal to really hone in on the areas that you shine at not the ones that you're not so great at introverts for example might be quieter than your typical extrovert or they might not. They might be loud in the life of the party sometimes but they're always going to recharge better when they have hind process their thoughts and to spend some time. Loan like hello. That's me introverts. Kill it when it comes to incite will listen creativity. They're usually thoughtful and cautious enough to make more informed decisions and they tend to be highly empathetic and understanding of other people's values opinions and ideas. Now expert on the other hand are usually going to get their biggest inspiration at energy sparks from working on teams and spending time with other people in expanding their networks. They're usually really great communicators and connectors and they're the ones that you can count on to coordinate ideas and make things happen. They're usually open minded and ready to walk into every door. They can make some a star conversation starter when you remove the stigmas placed on these labels. It all comes down to. What i believe is the main question to help you. Land on the discovery of if you're more introverted or extroverted to people give you energy. Do they take your energy to recharge and re fuel when you're with people or is alone time something you to get quiet with yourself if anything twenty twenty really forced us to understand ourselves a bit better. There were weeks on end. When i didn't leave our house beyond her daily walks outside and honestly i didn't mind it one bit. I love just being withdrew. Kogo and i didn't really miss the daily interactions at naturally. Come when you're out and about now. Drew on the other hand he missing people like he's the kind of guy who can small talk with literally anyone and so it was hard for him to live that more isolated lifestyle that came more easily to my rid itself when he do a little research. And feel like you've figured out which camp you're in it can be entirely freeing and help you to create a life that supports wear. Your fuel comes from knowing. I'm more introverted. Has helped me a lot when it comes to realizing my boundaries in reflecting on my skill set and honing in on what i really need help with which has in turn helped me as mom wife a friend to sister a daughter and a ceo. I've linked to an awesome introvert extrovert quiz in today's show notes at genyk your blog dot com slash personality. That's jenna cut your blog dot com slash personality in twenty one question quiz and it confirmed that while i do have a few expert tendencies. I lean more towards being an introvert. It ask questions like would you prefer weekend packed with social plans or weekend with zero plans. Would you rather listen to interesting lecture. Take part in lively discussion and so on. It's super quick and it's really fun quiz now. However you want to approach it. I encourage you to do some digging when it comes to being an introvert or an extrovert. Just start reflecting. Do you spend too much time with others. When you really need some extra time to yourself do you need to look for more room for your creativity to shine. Are you ready to make a big jump in your career do you hold limiting mindset about one type or the other and are there ways for you to learn more about the strength of both extroverts and introverts in order to grow your confidence all of these things they can show the reflection of your personality type big time like one personality type isn't better than the other and plus who says you even have to identify with just one of them but taking some time to discover where your personality fits can be a huge help in asset for you now next up. It's time for the fun part. Make galante open up your computer and take all the tests mandy. Internet is truly a goldmine for personality tests. From the any grand. The myers briggs test to the emotional intelligence assessment. There are so many resources that light. You truly dive into yourself. My team and i. We are huge personality test than we actually use them to be better team members to each other and to up with more confidence in our own strength for instance we love talking about are any agreement times in our emotional intelligence results because those help us to seriously connect on a deeper level when it comes to personal life and work life the other day i was chatting with my integrator mercer. Who is my right hand gal in the business and she told me she recently retook the any graham discovered that when she was super honest with herself in her response as check. She wasn't a three the achiever like she had thought she was the helper. And that makes perfect sense to me. That's absolutely who she is and what she brings to our team and she sent me over her full results. It was super awesome. Burmese leader in as a friend of hers to understand her even deeper. It's funny because sometimes we have preconceived notions about what outcomes should be most desirable or what we hope to be named. In claimed the more open and honest you are about your scores and your results. The more human connection comes into play and the more you can understand how you operate on a human level. We love using those realizations to tap into our strengths. Our weaknesses are communication styles and our work methods. And it's been so helpful for each bus. I'd recommend it to anyone and especially to any team. You're wondering what i'm really even talking about. When it comes to these personality tests. I want to dive a little bit deeper. My personal favorite and my teams is the test. This is something that. I literally bring up all the time as do many other graham lovers and i've literally made people take the test because i just want to know their answers view years ago we were on a trip with my best friends from college and their husbands and i made everyone stop or less in line and take the test so that we could talk about it. Altogether honestly been this tool. That's helped my marriage. It's helped my family's relationships so we know when to step in support or when did challenge one another and it's been this fun way to understand how others see and perceive the world. Now you might have heard me. Refer to myself as a three the achiever. Maybe you've heard or seen others listing their types in their instagram. Byles like to w seven meaning to wings seven or any other combination of numbers that relate to their personal results. The any graham test. Maybe you've even taken the test before after some prodding from a colleague or friend and you've got your type but you don't know the depth of what those results actually meet while i turn to the any graham institute at any graham institute dot com to summarize it for you. They're experts in this space. They say that there are nine distinct personality types in as a child tons of factors form your one dominant personality type now. Genetics delia role in personality type but environmental factors nature versus nurture as they say impact your dominant type as well. I also found it interesting. When i first started learning about the any graham and looking at the research behind it from the institute that people do not change from one personality type to another. Now you probably like me and the thought of being locked into one personality type like one label of that type for life feels like you're being put into a box with no way out but that's not what the grandma is about at any agreement institute dot com. They say that quote it is common to find a little of yourself in all nine of the types although wanted them should stand out as being the closest yourself this is your basic personality type unquote so while you may see elements of yourself in the descriptions of all nine types. It'll be super after reading your results that you do have a dominant basic personality type. The nine personality types according to the angiogram are the reformer the helper achiever individualist investigator loyalist enthusiast challenger and peacemaker. How do you figure out your type. You'll take a twenty minute or so. Sometimes it takes a little longer tests and you'll answer questions that will ask you to pick between two options for example question. They ask you if you are usually sure of yourself or if you're not typically super scher incumbent you might answer a question where you have to think about whether you're usually appreciated for your conversations or for your quiet generosity the whole test scratching your head and sometimes you have to get real honest with yourself even though it might not sound so great on paper be what you hope is the honest answer. The more truthful the more accurate your results are when you're done the test will have put you in one of the nine different types now like i've mentioned it. Dozens of times three otherwise known as the achiever and learning. More about my personal. Any type has helped make big strides in understanding by healthy and by not so healthy behaviors and gives you so much insight into why you might think or show up or attack life in the way that you do the cool thing about it is that it gives you wings or secondary traits that connect you to the other types in. I've definitely found myself leaning on other wings of the season. Where i feel like my identity is shifting a little bit. I think it's important to point out that just like views of being extroverted versus introverted. Which one is better when it comes entrepreneurship. It's also not hard to get caught up in thinking that there's this ideal any agreement type for starting your own business and wanna shut that down literally right now right here. The grim institute says it best quote. No type is better or worse than any other. While all the personality types have unique assets and liabilities. Some types are often considered to be more desirable than others in any given culture or group. Furthermore for one reason or another you may not be happy being a particular type as you learn more about all the types you will seed just as each has unique passes each has different limitations the ideal is to become your best self not to imitate the assets of another type unquote learning about your basic personality type through the program can help you become your best self will giving you tools to understand and connect with other types. So i'ma three but drew on the other hand is a type one. The reformer also known as the perfectionist of the personality types. Once you know your type in the type of your partner your husband wife co worker or friend you can use a relationship type combinations on the any agreement ensue website to gain an understanding of what each type brings to the relationship is well as the potential troublespots between those two tights and even their research backed analysis on how one type might be the other. We have absolutely used our results a lot along the way to understand each other better and the way that we want to show up in our marriage like the way he thinks. There's this absolute right or wrong way to do things but i think there's a gray area or how. I need to be doing something that i feel like. I can check off my list each day in order to feel valuable. It's been an amazing tool to understand why we do things the way we do them. Or why we think the way we think. And i one hundred percent recommend that you want to understand your partner or spouse or mom or coworker better to do this assessment. Basically the any graham fits you into a description based on your type right. You might be an achiever like a perfectionist like drew enthusiasts like my sister something completely different. I could sit here and talk about this all day. Trust me it's been such a great way to unlock so much about myself and you can use your graham results to help you manage relationships to find a better work style and reflect on yourself way better way more indepth than finding out.

More on you guessed it emotions. It's almost like an iq test but for the way you think and respond to things when it comes to your heart not so much your head you'll get an emotional intelligence score. That helps you to understand a little more about four major categories your own self awareness self management your social awareness and relationship management. Emotional intelligence is one of those things that were not taught to focus on as much as we grow up and honestly. I think we should be emotional. Intelligence or the ability to empathize understand. Recognize behaviors is a key marker for people in a lot of ways usually a higher emotional intelligence score typically means that you're healthier mentally stronger in your relationships and more confident in yourself. Plus emotional intelligence can be improved on overtime. If you're low on emotional intelligence in a particular area you can actually strengthen it. So when you take the assessment you'll get the score and you'll be able to see a little bit more about what areas you might be really really great at and what areas you're kind of lacking in. It's all really based on the idea that your emotional intelligence defines way more of your life than you might think which is honestly really obvious. New actually start to think about. My team actually worked with an emotional intelligence practitioner. Her name's tico nasih launch a dear friend and she not only allowed us to take the cue assessment but hoped to fully analyze and understand. What our personal assessments meant. I've tufo episodes on this show with tico that a link in the show notes for you because they are a deep dive into the different areas of emotional intelligence in what it actually needs to be a little vulnerable here for a moment. I have to admit something. That maybe you've done to when it comes to personality tests and the results that we receive but you give me so tempting to sift through each line item in description seeking out the results in the rankings that feel most complimentary the results that validate our own sense of greatness in the things were strong at but the real benefit of these tests is specially emotional intelligence assessment is seeking out the areas where we are not strong and choosing to understand why that is in hot improve so for me might lowest scoring category of emotional intelligence was a category called reality testing and that describes the capacity to remain objective by seeing things as they really are this capacity. Involves recognizing when emotions or personal bias in. 'cause one to be less subjective. Now when i learned this was my low area it honestly made total sense to me. Based on where. I was raised where i live my current lifestyle. I can honestly be out of touch with what others are. Navigating emotionally and i can struggle to understand their situations fully move embassy. We also learned as a team that most of us like to consider ourselves flexible. But when we got our assessments back. We realized that we really aren't all that flexible. Were flexible win. We're in control of what the changes are. Pivots are shifts. Look like so now as a team. We prepared to be more flexible and to flex muscle a bit more in order to strengthen challenge ourselves. If there's one test. I want you to take above all others. It's emotional intelligence Assessment however full. Eek you i two point oh. Assessment does come with a high price tag because it's often paired with coaching like through our practitioner And it takes about thirty to forty five minutes or longer to complete the assessment itself. I encourage you to go to your blog. Dot com slash. Faq take a look at the chart showing the core competencies and subcategory to determine if those are areas. You'd like to dig deeper into in order to understand and improve your own emotional intelligence. I also linked Assessment that similar to the one that made team took. It's going to provide you this overview of your results for free and provided complete report for a small charge. Do you want to seek out. A robust assessment in report look for practitioner who offers the q. I two point oh assessment. Now whatever test you choose to take doesn't matter though what does matter is taking the results as a chance to do some serious self reflection. I am a big reflections gal. Like i've always been being so with my thoughts and being introspective. It's on jam. And i'm undoubtably sentimental and love getting deep. Invulnerable with others is easy to reflect on a lot of things. But i'll be completely honest. Your self reflection itself has been really hard for me to do. sometimes maybe you can relate. There have been times where i can get super vulnerable about my body era fertility journey my relationships but actually taking the time to look deep into myself to see where i struggle or to own the areas that i'm challenging while that can be really hard and you'll really tricky honestly. Personality has have really helped me to get better at it because with all the praise and the goodness come the areas where you don't shine quite as bright and that reality is just part of being a human being when you take around of personality tests. Whichever ones you choose try here. Absolute hardest to take the results and just sit with them for a while. Don't just move on the second. Ucf area of weakness or space. You could improve as long as you've answered honestly. There's a pretty good chance. The test results are gonna highlight from your biggest strengths to your weaknesses. And that's the whole point instead of trying to run for. What makes you the person you are using things like personality tests can make you a lot more aware of those internal tangles that you might not have noticed before they might show you coping mechanisms or signs. You're not doing so well or bad habits. You tend to fall back into if anything they might help highlight y you struggle in the ways you do making you feel less alone and more open minded technology areas that don't come so easily for you. The easy thing to do would be to use your weaknesses as an excuse like you might even run the risk of those weaknesses listed in your results. Becoming this self fulfilling prophecy. It's like reading your horoscope seeing it. A two star day in deciding. Well what's the point of trying to show is my best self today. You don't have to give those aspects of results that power or control. Instead you control how those results inform empower your next steps on another level. You're results can be really helpful for highlighting things. You're a total rockstar. At any graham are super beneficial for understanding why you excel in certain tasks and how to communicate things that come natural to you and help for you to put your energy in your focus in the places where you shine when you take those results to heart and you spend wartime diving into those areas of your life that really light you up from the inside out the ability to do that. Improves everything in your life. From the second year feet hit the floor in the morning to the second you crawl into bed at night so we've covered a lot here. So let's do a quick recap lee with some homework. Introvert extrovert type three type. Two wing three high scorned self regard and self actualization low scoring reality testing. Now you got all these different results. Whatever they look like for you. How can you put a plan. In place to learn and leverage those results for success in business and relationships for life is a whole start with these three steps. I opened up a google doc or a paper journal and note your results for a particular test at the top of the page record your unfiltered reflections on those results. Did you discover you might actually be an introvert. Parading around is an expert because you thought an extrovert made you better leader. Have you finally gotten to the core of your personality with the grand but find yourself. Cringing at the weak points of your tight. Why the first thing you want to do is reflect on your results without judging yourself second turn to the experts for deeper study now. I am not an expert in the any grammar or emotional intelligence or any other personality tests. I'm a marketing expert. Who is also an eager student of these types of assessments and those who coach and teach on their principles. I love following. Sarah jane case at any agreement coffee on instagram. She also wrote the honest. Any graham which is super readable and it's digestible study of the program. Daniel goldman is a goto expert in author of several books on emotional. Intelligence are gonna. John is also working on a new platform called class with tico that will bring together training and lectures on emotional intelligence in an independent learning community. Hasn't launched yet. it's do anytime winter. Twenty twenty one but you can join the list now at class with tico dot com now. Finally another journal problem for you to help you turn your personality. Test results into a greater success at work in relationships in life is to answer this in the last three to six months. What activity relationship. Obligation project endeavour opportunity Out of alignment. We all know that gut feeling right when something isn't meshing with our hearts or minds so did anything in the recent past gave you. That feeling could be an issue. Attended a commitment. You made an email you respond to a client project. You accept it now. Analyze that out of alignment event or project in the context of your personality. Type my podcast producer kylie said once she realised that she was truly an introvert at her course she can make better use of her yeses one. She gave yourself permission in stopped agreeing to obligations in china opportunities that tax introverted nature highly freed up emotional mental and even physical energy to pour into the projects that would give her the sparkling magical success in areas.

MIT FIRST CLASS TO ARIZONA FOR TRIP. That became part dreamy session. Parts by retreat and part girls trip that absolutely changed how we will all work together. Moving mm forward earlier this year. I affiliated for a launch and I set a huge seven-figure goal for that launch. That big goal was a direct reflection of what I knew. My team could pull off but I also knew the amount of work that each member would need to do in order to get us there so I promised if we hit that goal we would take off on three day trip somewhere warm where the drinks were fruity. The rooms had robes. Now here's the thing. My entire team is remote. Which means some of these women had never even met each other in person? Listen and I hadn't even met some of the members of my own team like we all work together all year long with our emails being in our slack messages knocking but other than one on quick zoom call each week. We never get to see each other's faces and we certainly don't get to float around on giant inflatable champagne bottles sipping Pinochle Ladas while dreaming up our next exp big thing now. I wanted to thank my team for their work on that launch and for so many of the other projects that came to fruition this year but I also wanted an opportunity for all of us to really get to know each other and to connect in a way. That's only possible in person so needless to say we hit that goal. We crushed rushed to actually and I stuck to my promise.

This is Caitlin and if you tune into the podcast from the beginning you might have heard my story in one of the earlier episodes and then later we did another episode on kind of devolution of my role on the team I was jealous. I hire almost four years ago now and so now my my hands in just about everything over the years from the inbox to managing our wedding clients dealing with sponsorships helping genetic at the podcast off the ground writing writing courses list goes on but today my role is one hundred percent devoted to our courses so making sure they're up to date that our students are supported did and to help create content around what we teach. That's US both in our courses but also on the blog in sometimes on the podcasts you. What was the overall concept concept in goal of the retreat? I would be to bring together a team that works virtually so he could meet in real life. There's just something about about that personal connection in relationship building that is difficult to do online. And so we're already feeling just a new energy together this week after after coming back from the retreat in having those personal relationships in bond form has really impacted our day to day work. And the second answer would be just to celebrate a huge year we completely crushed our goals and to get us together to dream about what next year might look like Kosovo. There wasn't really any structure to the week other than SPA appointments or hanging out by the pool or dinner reservations in think. Jonathan really really was that those meaningful conversations in brainstorming about work would just sorta happen organically. And that's really what happened. Hey golddigger listeners. I'm Stephanie. I handle all of genesee. Email and customer support if you've sent a message to Jenin the last few years or needed help getting logged into a course. Yes you've likely gotten a response from me a few days before our team trip gina asks us to consider these five questions to help. Prepare US for the business portion of the retreat number number one. What is one process or system that we could refine or simplify number two? What is one thing? You've always wanted to try number three. What is one way your area could move the needle more number four? What is something you are passionate about? That could be applied to a new idea number five. What is one thing? That just isn't working that you wish we had a solution for as someone who starts his out about being put on the spot and saying the wrong thing or worse not being able able to think of anything to say. I appreciated the chance to consider these questions ahead of time. So that I can be prepared to Chime in on the discussions I also love. The Jenner wants to know our passions and the things that we wanna try so that they can be incorporated into our planning. She gives us ownership of our positions and really wants us to love what we do in. Treat this this business as our own. Hey I'm Kylie. I'm the girl behind the scenes of the gold digger podcast. I actually joked to Jenna at the retreat that I touch pretty much every piece of the podcast other than the microphone itself except for today I manage ads and I booked guests and produce those interviews. I read your pitches and I dream up episode ideas with the rest of our team of brilliant women and so much more other than those first few questions that Jenna China asked us to think about before landing Arizona. The retreat was actually pretty free form and the work happened without actually noticing. We didn't have a rigid tannery. We were all in his own of dreaming and we weren't restricted to like a hotel conference room with a stale environment. Anthony just would not have made sense for us or for our work styles. I can say firsthand because I've seen it that we are all power houses and we can put our heads down and turn out great rate work when we need to which is often are status quo but this retreat was intended to give US space to dream without pressure and relax six like we relaxed so hard I will say though that dinner on the second night was a really cool download of ideas ideas. Jenna brought her notebook an actual pen on paper journal to the restaurant and she talked us through what she was excited about. What she envisioned for the next ear and then what she learned? In the past year it was like an annual business report except there were far fewer graphs and spreadsheets and a lot. More CASO and Margaritas grievous. We went around the table chiming in about the systems we wanted to implement and the projects that would peak our passions and the areas that we thought we could grow with our own unique gifts so among really great Tequila. We had our biggest work session of the trip. I'm Brooklyn Wagner. I'm pretty much the copywriting. COPYWRITING extraordinaire I will write anything from e mails to add up to anything Jenna says. Hey we need this when I say yes captain my captain. The vibe of the retreat was actually super surprising to me. I went into this feeling like okay. I'm a Weirdo. Some going to have to turn my Weirdo down and I walked into a sea of my coworkers who are also pretty much Weirdos. which was the best news to me? And the dynamic of the whole our whole time together was also super surprising to me because we go from these like mind blowing like visionary strategy sessions just super like dilated is is going getting excited about you know things we can do in the next year. Five years ten years to immediately like kicking off our shoes and like stuffing our faces with chips and cheese and I love not because it was honest it was real like how do you go from being dynamic intellectual to silly. He like ten year old girls. And that's because we're people and I loved being able to feel that vibe of be who you really are like I don't WanNa go to stuffy business retreat but I'm also here to be with my people and be everything that we are which is dynamic intelligent intelligent women and also silly silly people weirdos. Hi My name is Audrey Skeleton. In and I am a content writer for Jenna catcher idea all of her blog content and help research and come up with the content content as she uses for her solo shows for the Golden. Your podcast to be honest going into it. I was not sure what to expect. I mean I knew it was unity. Ten smart successful women in close quarters for three days switch as we all know could have been arrested. Peoper like competition or one upping each other or just performing in Milic prove ourselves. I don't know about anyone else. Say does high school really ever end. That was kind of like my thoughts but I was so blown away from the first few minutes of arriving by everyone's openness in a genuine desire to want to get to know each other like I just I didn't. I was not expecting that like I was nervous. I kind about like a blind date like these people who talked to online every week. I'm like a meeting them. What are they really going to be like? I am pretty shy in group Luke settings normally but from the jump like I'll open and comfortable just to be myself with these girls. It was very lifetime best friends in to be totally honest to you you. I wasn't really even sure what geno would be like. which sounds weird too? I know because like we've spoken on the phone. Maybe twice ice and we talk every weekend slack about business in work. But I just wasn't sure what she be like in real life and she was be the most warm and chill and relaxed and like normal. I guess person like I just I just thought it was so refreshing. She's so oh clearly cares about each of our pets in our ownership in business and it was just so cool to see she doesn't. It's not like a hierarchy burke's she wants us to be invested in she's invested in our lives and our path as well. Hey There Comoros at Janus integrator and right hand Gal as you may have heard. I'm the newest member on our team. So everything about meeting these gals in person Hurson was excitingly unknown. So what surprised me. People's journeys generally interest me so learning about these ladies. In how how they came to be where they are now was absolutely fascinating. It was crazy to learn. Things are tag guru Danielle also having a super cheeky and fun Amazon bestselling book or however adds expert. Keri got start with an interior design which she also has a passion for it was also surprising to hear common themes around the whys behind why we at certain businesses to begin with as many of us had businesses before in this role and some still do common themes revolved around a hunger for more. Finding great leadership are triumphing personal trials. which if you heard some of their stories I can guarantee it result in the desire to share an immediate hug? At least that's how it was for me. Hi I'm Kerry sweatman and my advertising agency Assistant. NBA handles all of Jenas paid ads. We have been working together for almost four years now and coming together as a team for this retreat was very impactful for me. It really made my heart saying I came away feeling refreshed and super motivated and empowered. It gave us as a team the time and space ace to get to know each other as business owners as team members but more than anything as people after spending those days together. I know I've come away with a better. Understanding of how each of our personalities interacts with others and how each of our roles works within the whole as the the facebook and instagram. At strategist. I really got an inside view into the other creatives and strategists on the team and how each of our skill sets can bring out the best in the brand knowing in more detail what each person does and how they like to work. Give me context. For how. And why I things have been facilitated or executed a certain way it also paves the way for knowing more about the other resources and people available to tap into for ideas for inspiration and for support to carry out what I specifically do for. The brands paid advertising campaigns. Hey My name's Daniel Crawl and I do launch strategy and tactic with team Jennifer culture. I think that coming together and dreaming as a collective is incredibly important for a number of reasons if you're an entrepreneur or an online business owner being the visionary is super important but if the people who work work with and for you don't have that vision in mind. They don't know what goal they're working towards. I also think it's fun to hear different. People's perspectives and ideas says in their area of expertise and coming together and bouncing ideas off of each other. They might think of something in a way that you didn't or have an idea that could make your life easier easier that you maybe wouldn't have even considered before. I always say that with launching as well that if you tell someone like you know I want to have a six figure launch. Will you need a six figure support report level team. You need a six-figure ads manager and that doesn't mean that they charge that much it just means that they wanNA show up at that level to get you to that goal no and I think that translates to the business and brand as a whole as well.

That's away travel dot com slash gold digger Promo Code Golddigger when I think about my favorite moment of their retreat mind instantly takes me to our first dinner together at the beautiful restaurant within the Andalas. We had a private room with glass windows. A BIG OAK table bull delicious bites in a few took a moment to step back from all of the conversational magic happening. You could see each and every person's is almost uh-huh smiling. We had our first round of drinks in hand as the food. Started to come out from this incredible female chef at the Andalas. And that's when Jenna asks us to go around the table and start talking about what we're most excited for in the next year. That conversation really set the tone for the rest of the trip. It was really our first dreaming session and it was the first real life glimpse that we all got of the energy and the heart of our team team. Everyone shared their piece of the puzzle of this business and it was just so evident to me that this group of women are working working in their genius zones about what they're passionate about the way everyone stays lit up as they shared their big dreams in goals. It was just so moving. Hannam got to see how Jonah has not only encourage you to take ownership for roles in her business but she wants it to feel like ours she wanted to be like each of us has a piece of it's not just her business in warlike his companions of hers like she wants to have this ownership and that is so cool plus we got to hear some funny behind the scene stories that don't don't get shared on the podcast or during our daily slack messages the laughter was so loud in in those moments. I have never felt more quickly. CLE- bonded with a group of kind of semi strangers. Even though we've been working together for the past couple of months when I got back to my hotel room I called my husband and said this is a team that is going to do big things in impact this industry that we all love and and just have such a big heart for and it was just. It was just so cool to sit that we started off the retreat on such a high. Note my my favorite moment of the retreat was honestly just being with these incredible humans sharing ideas and of course relaxing at the pool and drinking Margaritas Margaritas. I will also say that we had wonderful SPA treatments and just getting to release spoil ourselves and take. Some downtime was so needed. My favorite moment of the retreat was well. It was all of it. It's so easy to get a little too in my shell when I work get home online and once in the mixed with other digital marketers. I thoroughly enjoy that in person connection. That happens when we're together. We talked talks a lot about growing Jenas brand but we also talked about our own businesses. The challenges that we face and of course our success as it's a nice break break from the routine to be physically in a team instead of talking through emails or a computer screen. I think it really humanized each other. As a team to get to know each other's personalities and different people's backgrounds and their area of expertise and the things that really liked them up was beautiful of all among the dinners and the poolside conversations and all the moments that made this trip pure magic. I have a favorite moment that I keep going back to. We were all sitting around the fire next to the pool and our final night and one of our teammates Brooklyn answered our please and performed her stand up routine it melted me. We were all just talking and giggling. Ed Been Just such a good full day like when you're little and you've had like like the funniest time with your friends and you can't stop laughing and just go to sleep and that's what it felt like. It felt like we were just weren't ready for sleep and we just wanted to hear stories so I got up to tell one of my life classic Summer Camp Stories. It's one of my favorite things ever to tell and it just opened up this time of all of us laughing and giggling about how summer camp it became a favourite. Not only because it was so funny and because I got to just share a bit about my life with these women that I am getting to no. I'm realizing that we're sort of letting our guards down in front of each other and we went from in that moment I realized that we had gone from just a team to this team. It felt like it was so solidified with all of our backgrounds and olive our likes and dislikes personalities personalities we had sort of converged the unity was palpable. I kind of took a step back from that moment and I looked around the fire. Everybody's everybody's faces and I got a little bit weepy. Do you ever just step back from a Moma and view it with a wider Lens. I didn't know any of these women over a year ago and I basically knew nothing about Jenna and what she'd built before I joined this team and now I'm a part of it now. I feel like I've landed home. It was extra fun because our unity came together through like laughter and comedy which early my favorite things but also because we got to just be open together other and we're whole people that was just radical to me. I loved it would do it again tomorrow. Ten the biggest thing. I'm taking away from this. Retreat is ownership and a shared vision. I feel it so much more after spending time with these women and one on one time with Jenna because being an employee employees in any environment whether working for an entrepreneur like Jenna or in a corporate setting with a whole hierarchy of people above you. The work you do in the the effort you put in at the end of the day it contributes to someone else's vision and to someone else's end goal and their dream if you're contributing to a vision you you don't share. It's hard to get excited about the work that you do. It's hard to feel any sense of empowerment or ownership of what you spend your days doing and that really infield empty but this retreat only solidified. That Jenas Vision her vision for her brand and her business for the way she wants to live and protect her time and end design her life and show up for. You is precisely in line with what I envisioned for. My life to Jenner takes workplace culture very seriously which is funny to think about giving that none of us actually share physical workplace. But I know for me that culture has been one of the biggest factors in my happiness happiness as an employee and it's also one of the reasons why I continue to perform at my highest level for her and for our team. Because I want to be here for a good long time time. Being the new kid on the block of remote team is challenging in itself. Not only learning the landscape of the business but everyone's roles in correlation to that landscape and then on top of that learning the nuances of communication styles and channels all from behind a computer screen. And and for me as the integrator that's also really hard to do when living in a learning curve so this retreat was so extremely important for me to lean into learning earning all of those things within this rare opportunity to all together in one place before the retreat. Like I knew whatever when did for the most part Kinda SORTA but coming together and hearing everyone's roles in the brand was so incredible like I had no clue you how much was even going on in this business. I kind of did my own being. Because we're all suffering work remotely but just to see how all entwined in comes together is insane. There's always something being strategized or plan for in. There's always some kind of movement happening happening even when it might really look like from the outside like even just just a regular week like there's always just things in motion which is so cool. Aw I would say the most important part was seen. The Women Gena has handpicked are in the right roles which allows me to let go of all the things I used to do. In the business so I- restraining one of our team members on something they're gonNa take off my plate and she asked me. Are you the protective of this work. This hard utilized go of in in the past. The answer would probably be us but after the retreat I can say no. It's not hard and and I can see that it's necessary as we grow as a business and I know that the work is not only in good hands but it's with the right people who are going to take it to the next tax level into stupid things with it while Jenna has tremendous ability for making the team feel the importance of how each of our roles plays into the bigger mission of the business and the brand. It is really remarkable for me to get to know the personalities behind the pictures in the conversations chance that we have in slack to me. This was a key takeaway working in an online business. It can be strange. You develop these friendships and relationships relationships that feel real and feel close and yet you've never been in the same room with each other. It's a little bit bizarre right. And although I've been with Jenna before it was so good for me just to be able to look at the team like in their actual eyeballs and give them a hug it made for some real connection not only around the work but with the people behind the skills tasks that we bring to this team. This retreat really drove home. The importance of in person connection connection as a remote team spread out across the country from New York to California. We spend our days. Interacting through a computer screen. Real human connection is so important Horton and it's something that many remote teams or work at home moms don't get enough of. I returned home from our trip having created new friendships with each one of these amazing women. Not only did did it. Leave my soul filling recharged but it has definitely changed. Our team dynamics for the better. This was important for me as part of the team. Because I've has been with China for a long time. I've worked with her. Since the very first launch so to see the evolution of this business in of Aleutian of her as a person in as a business owner as a mother was just incredibly empowering to show that you can do anything that you put your mind to and you can create it in way that you want to create it and just because people think that a big business or this level of a brand business has to look a certain way behind the scenes you can create that culture and the vision in the way that you want to work in a way that works for you and really fuels your business and your life so that you can live that how you want to and I think it's just really incredible. What's been created nothing we do on team? Jk a small sitting in sharing with these brilliant reminded me that my scope of what can be can at times be to tiny. The team reminded me that we can literally do anything when we dream. It also reminded me that you don't actually want to be the smartest person in the room. We have a tendency to compare ourselves as humans. But not having all the answers doesn't mean you're lesser in other words don't swim INNOC- of questionable enough newness just run towards the realm of like candy and those was who will make you better a retreat like this was so vital to me sometimes freelance or contract or whatever remote work can be pretty isolating. But if I'm honest with myself I've been in a place filled with people like I've had a job where I'm sitting next to my co workers and I still. NFL lonely. And I think the key is that we have to be known. It's not all work. Were not all work and we had a chance to come mm together and not just be all work and something kind of clicked in my brain where yes a lot of my insecurities were left in Arizona. which is so cool and a lot that loneliness a lot of that like I'm doing my job alone? kind of thing melted away because it's just not true but became so real and went from. I'm feeling like I'm not just on a team but we are the team and that's important I think for everybody feel that way whether you're remote worker whether you're whether you're Sitting around your coworkers right now. It's important to realize that you are it. There's a big difference. Get that preposition out of there. Not just on a team and I. I loved walking away and getting in my car on the way back to the airport in feeling like this is my team. I remember sitting around the pool. Okay and like laughing. We were like I was eating some kind of keen wa salad feeling like just like the most healthy like fit girl and we were all laughing because we said it felt like a Bachelorette party already because we were just being so ridiculously silly. As if we'd known each other since like way back in ninety nine you know and we're laughing about that and I remember looking around feeling like that. It is the kind of team I WANNA be on. These are the people that I want to do. Life with and we are all so different and yet these people who yes. I've been working with for over a year now. Came together and said yes to spending time together and slowing down and having a good time eating keen Wa. You know oh I could not I do my job unless I felt like there was purpose in it but now I this added bonus on top of like I love copywriting writing. I get this beautiful added bonus of a team to do that. Purposeful work with and that is invaluable invaluable and priceless to me. Wasn't this fine. I love that you get to meet the incredible women behind this business for me either. Team retreat was so surreal. I remember we were sitting at a table. And we all had drinks and a smorgasbord of food in front of us and we kind of went around and just talked about what we were excited about. And it's so interesting because I get to communicate with these women on a daily basis but a lot of times you don't the behind the scenes of one another's lives and to understand understand that I built something that helps support. Ten women live the life. Dave dreamed of like that was actually really mind boggling to me because I often I didn't think of impact as impacting. You like you the listener. You the course taker you the student but I often forget to really I think about and take a step back and say oh my gosh like my business is supporting ten employees and contractors like. That's a huge deal and not only only was that amazing but it was this ultimate girls trip where we all just connected in jived and it wasn't clicky and we loved each other and we got to understand each other. Learn a better way and we got to see one another unit. Kate and I just remember my mom had gone back to the room so that commonly could go to bed and my mom was half asleep and she was like. How's your dinner? I was like mom. It was magic I got all teary eyed. Because when I think about the early days of this business and being a solo preneurs for years and years and years in grinding the grinding and grinding and hustling and pushing to seeing this business in this life that we've all been able to build as a collective. It was funny because two days after the retreat I'd flown to New York for a shoot with airy and I was talking to a few of the royal role models and I was talking about my business and I kept saying we we and one of the girls goes when you say we. Who are you talking about you? Andrew and I said no when I say we. I'm talking about my team because because this is not my own sure I was the one that founded it and built it but this possesses hours the women's voices. You just heard the businesses. There's there's two they own these prices. Being helped bring these dreams to fruition. They dream sometimes bigger dreams and dream for myself and so to have a chance to you pause to celebrate to connect to communicate to just come together it was pure magic. It was one of the best investments moments I have ever made bar none because I felt rejuvenated. My team felt connected. My team felt excited. We got to dream and talk about and processed together and man. I am so excited to do it again. In fact as we were sitting down over allies breakfast I said wait like let's set her next date. We actually set a date for February. Like we're getting together again in a few months because I just realized how truly valuable it was to have us all in the same place at the same time time. I could not do what I do without these women without this team behind me and especially looking at this last year as navigating motherhood and being on the road and just being in different seasons of life like I look at all of the content that we've created all of the ways that we've shown up in bigger ways as to impact you y-y-you I couldn't do without them. It is our business. It's not my business our business and each person that you just heard from plays an incredibly critical role in what we do in how we show up in this world. So if you have team if you've never met in real life if you're working virtually truly day in and day out I would encourage you. It doesn't have to be fancy it doesn't have to be I guys. You can stand the local holiday inn but connecting face to face and heart to heart heart is so meaningful. I truly believe it can change everything and I am only more excited about what this coming year has for us. Now that we we know each other have lived together have drank margaritas and sipped champagne and celebrated all of the milestones that we've already accomplished in all of the ones that were going to tackle.

Now please fasten your seatbelts and join us for the short flight to help you grow thriving coaching business around your life. How this is Nicole, band is founder and CEO of virtual eighteen, and this is episode number eight of the coaches co-pilot podcast. On this episode, we're talking about creating that. Jane doesn't that just give you warm fuzzies. The perfect day I'd probably be sipping my ties on the beach all day not that kind of perfect Jay but I have my wonderful team member Aaron Connelly. For Great Show and we are going to die deep into this Erin I. Hear this might be a little bit of personal topic for you. This is totally a personal topic for me because quite frankly. The. Ideal. Day gives you warm fuzzies. Dimension of an ideal gives me. The shivers tinkle's scares me two pieces. So I am definitely interested in this conversation and so yes, this is probably GONNA turn into a hot because it is something that I struggle with a lot and have for years frankly yeah and you know I it I think it is. When people I approach this concept they it's a very scary kind of idea, very scary concept, but we're going to break it down and we're GONNA. Make it much more palpable and much more a hook as now I feel a little bit more calm a little bit warmer apiece but we do have some homework for you, and if you have not already listened to our episode on Peak Productivity Times. Will will, of course, link that in the show notes but that's a little bit of homework to beginning to outline what your ideal day looks like and how to tackle some of the challenges that frequently come with it. So Erin you did do that, right? Yes. I did it was a great process and I did Have some epiphanies in that process learning about myself in what time of the day I functioned best to do creative task versus what is my best time of the day to exercise I learned that and that's working well for me and the concept of time blocking is where I'm getting stuck because I am a self proclaimed perfectionist and so when I put those pretty little squares with their pretty little colors in my little digital planner, everything looked great. In then. Stuff happens and so then those squares I got to the next. Colored Square on my calendar and I hadn't finished what I was supposed to finish in the colored square above this one in. So it just got very frustrating and I realized that that's why this has never worked for me. So I am interested to figure out how I overcome that because I do want this in my love is truly A yes, and we're going to definitely help you with some of those issues. But for those of you that are like what the heck is a time lock and what does she mean by a pretty little colored squares I'm going to take a step back and I describe to you what it means. How do you Kinda set up that ideal day and what an ideal day is if in a perfect world, like you know you have to do certain tasks and using those peak productivity times when you know it's The Best Day, for you to exercise the best time of day for you to do your creative processes, you put those times in little blocks on your calendar. So it might be a half hour block. It might be an hour and a half block of time and you outline your day as if everything went perfectly, this is when you would do all of those individual tasks. So that's what we mean by time blocking were blocking off the time as if it was an appointment on your calendar to do certain things. So. That's kind of the basics that that part make sense to you right in. Yeah. Absolutely, and I did enjoy that process of finding out what my peak productivity hours were and I did feel benefit from seeing okay I'm supposed to do this at this time on my calendar when I would wake up and look at what I needed to do. It was very helpful and I did find that I forgot less. Of the tasks that needed to accomplish. But why is this never worked for me like I helped me understand is this just me? Like am I the only time block challenged person on this planet? Absolutely not not feel alone call I ask you know I mean the basics of it. Sound easy in concept like when you first do this, you're like, oh my gosh this just makes total sense in in the real world happens life happens in we all have you know whether We have kids or we have spouses or we have parents are we have other jobs or clients in and they all want a little piece of us here and there throughout the day. So if we lived in a bubble where we could control the world around us, we might be able to adhere perfectly to the guidelines that we set up for our day. But that's not reality. We don't live in that little bubble although cove it's Kinda helped with that a little bit still. It's definitely feeling a little more bobble life. tsn. Boy Girl here and there but. But but we don't live in that bubble, and so we do have other demands for our times other things that factor in but one of the biggest things factors in our inability to adequately determine how much time we need for a specific task. So. That's one of the number one barriers. We might think, Oh, I'm going to sit down and do accounting and I'm going to give myself and our jewelry accounting, and then you get in there and you realize. Oh my gosh, not only do I have to you know balance a checkbook, but I also have to go back and file the taxes for last month that I have to you know pay off the credit card, which means I have to reconcile the credit card and I have to do this I have to do that, and then all of a sudden that our love process that you thought it was gonNA take turns out to be ninety minutes in your in your behind the eight ball from the moment you start that process right and now I'm into my next pretty colored block, and now I'm stressing myself out because I'm thirty minutes behind. and. So yeah, that's when it takes over for me stress wise than I think why is this benefiting me like? In this moment I'm more stressed than I was before I had pretty blocks on my calendar. And so this is a lot about practice in mindset. So the practice piece is. Really better understanding how much time? For, certain tasks. So you may not realize that every time you get into doing the accounting, it's going to take you ninety minutes it as much as you wish, you could only spend an hour on it. You discover after practicing this activity over a period of time that really takes ninety minutes and you have to honor that ninety minutes. The. Other pieces being that mindset piece being willing to say I got to the hour I didn't complete everything on the West. Therefore I'm going to add another day later on in the week to accomplish the rest of those things that I didn't finish today. So being willing to say a not complete and that's okay I know this is. For, those of us that struggle with perfectionism saying that we're not completed something is like a deal breaker right there and it's it's I. Say. I feel myself hemorrhaging perfectionism. So you're telling me to just Kinda let it go. Let it go. Let it go. Okay wait a promise not to sing anymore. Well, I'll try not to sing anymore. I'm really bad singer, but sometimes they come out of me so. So that really does bring up an honest question for me. If if I'm, GONNA get myself to a place where I'm going to have to let it go because it's taking me longer than I thought why am I setting the timeframe in the first place? Why don't I just sit down and go do accounting? Because that's what I used to do before we were going through this process together I would just go. This is my list of tasks and the only thing showing my calendar was my appointment with someone else this setting an appointment with myself and setting an appointment with my own tasks is is new for me. So if it's GonNa take me longer. Why am I letting go versus just not putting that square in the first place? Yes. So Aaron have you ever purchased. A larger purse than the one that you had before and before you knew it, you needed a bigger purse than the one that you had just purchased. Yeah I did that in my thirties and then I realized, you know what? I should just get rid of some stuff. Exactly. See. The thing is there there's this there's this concept that's all out there the PARETO principle that says that the things that we do expand to the time allotted. So if we narrow down and say, we're going to honor a ninety minute timeframe and we're only going to give us service ninety minutes to do the accounting. Are we GONNA get distracted by working on facebook? Probably. Not We're going to really be a lot more focused. We're going to practice that diligence of saying I am going to do the things that I absolutely need to do and I'm not going to get distracted by all the minutia that I don't need to worry about. So having those boundaries allows us to really hone in and pay attention to the things that we absolutely need to get done. Okay. That makes sense that I do get that. But speaking on. Speaking to my inner hippie and my free spirit I have this element of creativity that sometimes is inspired by what I'm doing in that moment, right? So. I may get into a project and go. Oh Wow I just had a great idea for that and Squirrel I'm off to that project. I'm not distracted by something unproductive distracted by something that is flowing naturally in that moment ends up to live in creative space Stop the the water flow of one to manage that timeframe. So I've got some insider little sneaky hacks to this whole process that I build in. Working with a client on this kind of thing, and these are called free time days or extra days or you know you can call them whatever you want. Some tips starts out as a half day sometimes has to take a full day. Once a week I usually book these on Fridays and these are my time slots were I. Don't have anything specific scheduled on my calendar. And what that allows is. If I get distracted if I'm like really inspired I the first thing I do is I try to take note of that and write it down and say ongoing to work on this project later. Because, there are so many times were US creatives are going to get a brilliant idea and we're going to. Take off and work on that brilliant idea get halfway through it and then be like. I'm not really all that interested in it anymore. I've laughing because. If you know how many times I started cleaning out a closet. And by the end of the day, my entire house is in disarray and I don't know where I started at the beginning of that day because one thing led to another idea that led to another idea and pretty soon, I've unpacked every closet and I don't really know why. And you no longer one a half every clause unpack. You wish you could go back to the beginning of the day right? Exactly. Get here. What happens to me? That's exactly what it is. So so a lot of times we just we need to get the idea out on paper. So have something next to you whether it's journal or even you know whether it's Digital Journal paper? Journal whatever the case may be and jot down those those those ideas, those concepts. In as brief moment as you can, and then say, this is going to be addressed later my day or my creative time or tomorrow in creative time or on my free day. That's interesting I mean. In my time doing trainings I would tell people to parking lot questions so. I would say if you have a question, I absolutely wanted to get a piece of paper right now dots parking lot right down your questions. When we get to the end here, we're going to unpack all of those. So that's basically the fact that I haven't taken my own advice clearly. We're always we're always better coaches of others than we are of ourselves. Right, okay. That makes sense Because, I. Don't want to stifle that creativity, but it's almost like I have to rein in that little girl right? I have to say, okay, we're GONNA play. But we're GONNA play on Friday and and putting off that. Still allowing myself to have those creative thoughts but making sure that I am controlling them. In a in a more. Methodical way right in you know what? At the end of the day there's going to be that little girl that's tugging on your shirt sleeves saying. But now, Mama now, I wanNA play now and you have to be willing to give yourself permission to do that if you've done something else to address that and say, okay, we're GONNA. We're GONNA do this. WE'RE GONNA go out to the playground next week whatever the case may be and she still tugging on that shirt sleeve you'd have to be willing to give yourself permission to say today is not going to be the ideal day that I outlined and that's Okay Every day doesn't have to be perfect. Again. It goes back to that perfectionism. If it's outlined, you feel like you have to do it that way, but we don't have to follow that to achieve. Okay. So we don't have to follow that to a T. again I can feel like my chest get tight because I'm sort of a rule driven person. So this is definitely a paradigm shift for me to say this is your. For, lack of better way to put it. You're a loose. Plan for the day. And wanting to adhere to that as much as possible but then still allowing myself the freedom to be that free spirit and go with the flow. That's great. I can totally accept that. What do we do when it's not us? It's we're not the ones that are initiating that. Derail you get a call in. Your daughter needs you to come bring groceries or your has a flat tyre or what about those times when it isn't a that's initiating that. Squirrel moment. Yet, and that's another great question at another big challenge that you're not alone on There's a couple of things again, the we can address here. One is to really reflect on the boundaries is this US feeling guilty if we can't bail somebody out is this US feeling that? I. Am worth less if I don't drop everything that's important to me to go help this person. Is this a real emergency or is it just my own personal? I need to go do this. So when you can really dig deep into that question, you can you can solve a lot of the issues because a lot of those things are going to be. Really, more about you personally feeling guilty if you don't go help somebody if it's your daughter needing groceries. Is there an opportunity to say I can get groceries for you at five o'clock tonight when my day is wrapped up. I can't do it right now. On the other hand if you're heavy is has a flat tire and you don't happen have AAA or any other way to help him out then you may need to drop things and go take care of that. But that's why we have that. Free Day available at the end of the week to address the stuff that didn't get taken care of because of these random times sucks that we get into. For reasons that we can't fix. Right. That makes total sense and I did find that because I do have multiple clients might email is constantly coming in from different directions with people who have different types of needs. And I used to be very sucked into answering that person in that moment. So one benefit that I found by designing this ideal day was the permission to say, Oh, sally needs something but Sally's tomorrow at eleven in. So that gave me that piece that I was GonNa take care of Sally, but it wasn't in this very moment. So that was definitely a benefit for me knowing that okay. This time is allotted to this client or task or job role. and not feeling that instant need to answer right away. And that right, there is one of the huge powers of the system. If you know that there is time slotted on your calendar for later in the day or tomorrow or the rest of the week, then it's less tempting to address certain things come up in that moment You know one of the big things that we see is is that temptation to go be. Sucked into social media and kind of end up down that rabbit hole. But if you've already scheduled on your calendar to work on social media for half an hour at the end of the day, then then it's less tempting to go check who sent me a message on social media. You can turn off those notifications and lend me preached you about turning off notifications if. Jota to be great. If notifications are interrupting your day constantly whether it's on a phone or whether it's from your computer. Put those notifications on pause while you're being focused so that you can laser. Think of it this way. If you went to a doctor and you're paying that doctor. Two hundred dollars an hour for visitation with him and you had him for fifteen minutes. Would you be checking your phone during that fifteen minute doctor's appointment oh no, you would not. So it's okay and you have to kind of get to that place where you were. Okay. Saying I'm going to take care of you. Later and not feeling like you'RE GONNA, lose business or lose friends or family because you're not available to drop the hat, this kind of from I. When. I've when I've presented this topic in groups before this comes from I hear this all the time. It's a very slick guilt kind of thing. I was going to say. It is a guilt place whether you know it's like like my grandma say you got some Catholic guilt like that or whether it's just some of it is. Depending on your generation that you grew up in. Although technology has brought us closer together in some ways for me I liken it to someone tapping on my shoulder literally all day we didn't grow up with the kind of constant notification, constant flow of information. You know people called. If we weren't home, they left a message on the voice machine. Go back. And and. But. The expectation on the flip side is. If you did call someone in you left a message we we weren't sitting by our answering machines or rotary phones going did they get the message to get the message? Are they calling me back? Are they calling me back? It's been seven minutes. Why haven't they called me back so it has been a paradigm shift for me to let go of that sinking someone else's expecting in this very moment. So I have to be very strategic in not feeling guilty and not feeling like. I have to respond to them at this very moment. You know one of the things that you can do. With those around you whether it's friends and family or whether it's clients or people that you work with is to begin to train them to understand your rhythm allow them to understand that if you text me I will respond when I have a moment it's going to be within a forty eight hour period of time, but I will get back to you and then honor that agreement. So they know. That that, you are not letting that slide. You will address it and when I insult, you know what it's sometimes, it's like training a child how to use the potty you have to do it over and over and over and over again before they finally get it. But so true in this process that's what I. That's one of the epiphanies that I had is I had trained people to expect an answer from me I had set myself up for my own stress in failures, and so I don't know if you saw my post on facebook but I literally said someone tell me how make a text message. Voice Machine. Hi, thanks for texting. I'm not home right now, but I will respond to you and so I actually have created that on my phone and so when I put on, do not disturb it at least sends people a message that says I got your text. So for me that was hugely liberating and I didn't feel that guilt and it released me from feeling like I had to respond to somebody at that time. So I think that. Like. You're saying like training other people in your normal rhythm is huge in in in creating this ideal day because it does in time, release us of that guilt. Right and it's practice it really is practice. This is not something where like most habits are low most mindset shift she can't flip a switch in expected to take place overnight riot it does take practice. It does take constantly being reminded in you know what I'll tell you one of the amazing things after you've done this for a while I've been doing the ideal day process for probably about ten years now I am no longer have two time block my schedule wall with the. Minute details of what's going to happen in that period of time because I just know I know it now and I've trained my people to understand that hey, I might not respond to you. If you send me an email, don't expect a response right away. It's going to probably take several hours. If you need me faster, send me a text message if you send a text message if better be or Jim because if it's not, I'm still not going to respond to right away. Right Oh. I've trained like people on this process. And it's IT I no longer have to have the pretty color. On my calendar all the time because I just know what that looks like and what it feels like and I know how to build into my day. Those cushions you can even build in at the end of your day only schedule yourself out to you know maybe two o'clock in the afternoon and then anything after that is kind of just filler like what didn't get done earlier in the day. The other. Really important point to this and I want to kind of go back to the time blocking peace and really making sure that you're managing that. Is. The ideal day is set up to say like, maybe this is your accounting block and maybe this is your creative block, and maybe this is your. Client Block. That's what the ideal day looks like. But when you get down to the nitty gritty and you're scheduling out your day or your week, it should no longer say accounting it should say specifically what you want to accomplish I'm going to reconcile my credit card and I am going to pay my bills. Okay. I haven't done that I haven't done that yet. So that's a good tip to be actually just. Instead of. The overarching task I'm laying out the minutia right and you're doing that because then that gives you that release at the end of that ninety minute block. You've accomplished things that you said you were going to accomplish if you and you to work during that period of time to do something else. That's okay. But you don't feel guilty if you have to stop midway in the middle of it. Because your timer has stopped in, it's time to move onto the next process. That's huge because like you were saying as you get into the task and those rabbit holes come up. It would be easier to identify. Okay. This project was bigger than I thought it was I now have five more tasks that I need to do. So if I just move those five tasks to the next block. Then that frees me to finish the tasks that I had assigned to myself that day, and it also gives me that sense of accomplishment that I'm lacking right now at the end of my time blog, I'm feeling like I accomplished what I was supposed to accomplish even if I've done it. In the time that I had allotted right because you don't know what you're really supposed to accomplish. There was no clear list Gotcha? Yeah. Yeah. Get that warm fuzzy putting the star next to the task and say. I get my gold. Okay. So here's the tough one that I think we do need to address what if I mean? I'm not speaking for me or anything this hasn't happened to me of course not. If I'm looking at my calendar I mean someone else is looking at their calendar and they're like, Oh, at two o'clock today, there's that task coming up that let's just say it's cleaning the toilet. It's the business version of cleaning the toilet, and so what are we going? WHAT ARE WE GONNA? Do we avoid it? So. How Do I make sure that I'm. Myself Accountable I guess to not skip over that cleaning the toilet time block because then that's going to completely mess up the rest of my. Ideal deck. So this is going to tap back in a little bit to the peak productivity times in really identifying is there a certain task that if you put it at the end of the day when your energy is low, you're much more likely to procrastinate or or leave it off. There's this concept the really really famous concept in productivity called eat that frog and the idea behind that is you do the tough thing first thing in the morning. So sometimes, we have to schedule those tasks. Of Our peak productivity time because that's which is no that if if this is something, I really hate to do the later in the day against the much more likely I am to procrastinate doing it but if I for sure. If I, put it right at the beginning my day I'm GonNa, get it done. Check it off and. Feel accomplished and it sets me up for success for the rest of the day. So that's one piece of it. You can really look at that concept of eat that frog and. 'cause you know you don't WanNa eat a frog. So if you eat it first thing in the morning, then you're done so Make a smoothie out of their. Just. Greed smoothie. Only video podcast and they could have seen my face when you eat the FROG, right? All right. And then the other idea behind it is creative reward system for yourself. So if you know that this is a task that you're going to procrastinate you tend to put off think of something that you absolutely love to do and position it right after task. So that might be I don't get to take a break until I have done this and so it's a reward is you know what I love to have a piece of chocolate in the late afternoon. So just before I do that chocolate I'm going to get this one task off my list. And if it's really something that you're struggling with find an accountability partner the you can call up and say it's done I. got that off my. Have somebody at your back that you know is going to be able to hold you accountable to getting those nasty things done. That is an amazing tip for sure. And thank you for being my accountability partner by the way. Oh you're so local I like to call you the celebration sister instead by. That works to. Some of this, just the whole idea of being accountable to somebody else who feels a little bit too much like a J. O. B. and so I. Mention. Sister Right again, rather than you have to come up with another term, but it's just knowing yourself right I know that accountability partner is something that I wanted to avoid but I do have a celebration sister today's.
