May I just hope that you guys are doing well and staying positive? I know it's been hard. We are in very weird times right now so I just wanted to get back on here and just share with you guys a little bit about what I've been up to lately if you've been listening for any amount of time Or following me on social media for any amount of time you know that I love to lead group trips and specifically I lead trips every year to Patagonia and We've gone to Jordan we've got. We'RE GOING TO CROATIA THIS YEAR. As long as we are allowed to that trip is still on and the other thing that I have been doing with my group trips for the last couple of years is leading retreats. And I know you've heard me talk about Mary. Treat a little bit lately in recent episodes. This retreat is called. Bring your own net and it's about discovering the tools that you need to show up for yourself whenever you take a leap because guess what that net doesn't just appear got into that a little bit in the last episode in one of the blog posts that I wrote but I wanted to talk a little bit more about that retreat today and that is because it is actually happening. It's open right now for registration. It is may fourteenth to seventeenth so the doors are going to be open through May Twelfth. And you can find everything you need to know at traveling. Jackie DOT COM slash retreat. This is my first ever online version of the retreat that I've been leading for two years. I'm super excited about it. This has been a dream of mine ever since I started leading it in person to put it online. Actually this week I was supposed to be in Italy getting ready to lead it in person with some of you which really hurts my heart to think about but here we are and this is the next best thing so. I am so fortunate. Actually we are all very fortunate right now to live in an environment where we can create such events using digital media just like this podcast that you're listening to right now which have the power to really bring us together no matter where we physically maybe which a lot of us is still at home but today. I I wanNA tell you a little bit more about why. I'm doing this why I'm putting this retreat online. And what what it's really about and where it came from because that's something I've never really gotten into on this podcast Although it starts with my story and that is something I have gotten into on this show but just in case. You have not heard that because you have to go back kind of far too. Tino catch my story I'm GonNa just tell you a little bit about that today and just a little bit more about who I am and where I've come from and I some of You. You've actually been following this show for You know what we just. We just had our six year anniversary of this show which is crazy we. Are you know six years later? We're still going and I personally as your host. I've been through a lot in those six years and That's what we're GonNa Kinda talk about today and we're also going to hear in a little bit from two of the girls who have been on this retreat with me so going to try our best to give you an idea of what is going on with the. Bring Your own net retreat. So in case you don't know my background. This is something that I I usually share. I mean a lot when I'm interviewed on other people's podcasts. But as far as my own podcast. I don't really share my story anymore. So I'm going to kind of recap a little bit I started traveling internationally. When I was eighteen I went to Costa Rica study abroad for a year and that totally changed my life and I kept traveling after that I fell in love with travel and everything different new and I could not possibly go back to normal as I as I knew it to exist before and so I that was what really kicked off my Mike Vagabond years. I suppose Where I truly pursued travel as a lifestyle and after that year in Costa Rica. I studied abroad for a year in Italy I followed my passion to learn languages. I went and study abroad in Brazil as well. I backpacked through Central America. I ended up back in Europe. Living there. Travelling there was back and forth between Latin America and Europe. A lot during those years of basically my my university years and just after that and in two thousand twelve I got married and although I was still able to travel here and there You know my life was really different and I was kind of doing the adult things had a home and a dog and a partner and you know we were kind of doing the thing and then in two thousand thirteen is when I started blogging with the budget traveler and then the next year I started the podcast in two thousand fourteen and a lot of you guys have been here since then which is super cool You know I was in a different place. Then if you've heard all of this then you've really been with me through it all But in two thousand fifteen the year that I got a divorce and that year I decided to take my backpack and myself onto the road and I put some of my things in storage and I said goodbye to the life that I knew and that I had been building And I'm not going to get into the personal details of why all that happened. The important thing to know is that I needed to change. That was the bottom line. I needed to change my life and so this was the path that I took. I decided to hit the road by myself. And that turned out to be an incredible voyage of personal discovery for me that turned out to be me totally tearing all of myself down to the foundation and rebuilding even parts of my foundation. I needed to know what I was standing on. I needed to know what I was doing in this world and I didn't and I didn't have confidence in myself. I didn't think I was ever going to be okay with travelling alone. I never thought I was going to be content being on my own. There were so much that I was afraid of but what I knew was that I had to make a change and so this is what I did. I made the change. I took the leap I left and I pursued life on my own and it totally changed everything for me

"Is delivered night twenty sixteen and at the parking lot in Ventura California rose macario steps out of her car and into the warm mid morning sun the Patagonia. Ceo rubs her bloodshot eyes. She barely slept last night. And that's because her nightmare just came true. Donald J trump has won the election. Trump ranks high Makarios black book. He stands for everything. Patagonia opposes oil drilling coal mining. Climate Change denial but her horror at the election. Results has now solidified into resolve just before heading in. She emailed the entire company and urge them to find ways to help. Patagonia's fans Organiz against the trump administration's environmental agenda as she walks across the line von Cunard emerges from the same tin shed where his billion dollar business empire began. The sheds long outlived its usefulness to the company but you could still use it when the urge to do some blacksmith things strikes. He had straight for macario with a determined. Look on his face. Rose I read your email and I agree with every word. We must push even harder now. We must be ready to fight for what we believe in Makarios smiles. That's exactly what she wanted to hear. And it's just as well because it won't be long before Patagonia and traube cross swords. It's April twenty seventeen and Makarios Patagonia's office watching president trump deliver live address from the White House. Today I'm signing a new executive order to end another agreed abusive federal power and to give that power back to the states and to the people where it belongs in December of last year alone the federal government asserted power over one point three five million acres of land in Utah known as bears ears. I've heard a lot about ears and I hear it's beautiful. Macario tenses at the mention of bears ears. Patagonia funds the activists who helped turn this part of southern Utah into a national monument. Now trump wants to put these federally protected Red Rock Canyons. Back in the hands of Utah politicians and that sparking fears that the land will soon be opened up to developers and mining. It's a direct strike against a cause close to Patagonia's heart. Marco knows the fight to stop trump. Going ahead with this plan is on. She needs to call in some powerful allies. Macario grabs her phone and calls. Vice President are are. Are you seeing trump's announcement on bears ears? Yeah we need to do something. The whole outdoor industry needs to together. We can make a difference. I'll get our social media team to spread the word and encourage people to lobby against the change. Fantastic will do the same on our end. We should call around the rest of the industry to build a coalition by the day's end Patagonia. The North face and other outdoor companies are ready for battle. They may be business rivals but in this fight their allies united to protect the kind of outdoor spaces that are their lifeblood but their words fall on deaf ears. It's December twenty seventeen and in Ventura employees are crammed into Patagonia's conference room on TV. President trump is in full flow speaking live from the Utah State capital in Salt Lake City. I will sign two presidential proclamations. These actions will modify the National Monument says it nations of both bears ears and grand staircase Escalante the teen reels. As trump announces that the federal government will hand eighty five percent of bears ears back to the State of Utah Months of campaigning by Patagonia. The North face and their customers have failed to save the National Monument but Makarios ready for this. She turns to her team. Looks like we're going to war. You all know what to do. A minute later. Patagonia's website gets a new homepage. Five stark white words on a black background. The president stole your land by then Makarios on the phone to the Washington. Dc Law Firm. Patagonia put on standby filed a lawsuit as the Lawyers Spring Action Patagonia's publicists spread the word. That Patagonia is now suing. The Federal Government for scaling-down bears years by late morning Patagonia founder. Yvon Cunard is on CNN. We're losing this planet and we have an evil government and not just the federal government but Wacko POLITICIANS OUT OF UTAH places. I mean it's the north face also acts. It blasts the move as the largest elimination of protected areas in US history and donates. One hundred thousand dollars towards an Education Center in bears ears but the trump administration isn't backing down Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke hits back on Fox News so Patagonia made in China. These these companies are out there. Shameless lies they should focus on how to bring manufacturing back to this country rather than line the public about about losing federal land but while Patagonia spars with the White House in waits for its day in court. The North face launches a new marketing campaign. That seems like a clear dig at trump's promise to build a wall along the US Mexico border since nineteen sixty six viewed walls not as obstacles opportunities. We were searching for a personal kind of freedom in this pursuit found a community this community shyness that the only way forward is together. We believe in a world is united by difference bound by empathy and strengthened by understanding. Walser meant for climbing yet. Despite its present day political undertones. It's a campaign that could have come from north face or Patagonia at any point during the last fifty years for awhile. Most companies run scared from politics. Patagonia and the north face have long been nailing their colors to the mast. It's not without risks by making a stand. They inevitably alienate some customers even as they win the loyalty of others but there are sound business reasons to do it. In two thousand eighteen. A major survey by Public Relations Firm Edelman found fifty seven percent of Americans say their beliefs. Now drive their decisions about which brands to spend their money on and that number is growing not just in the US but worldwide so now more than ever what values accompany stands for matters to the bottom line and that's good for Patagonia the north face. Because they've done more than just make money they've sought to change the world to since one thousand nine hundred eighty five. Patagonia's made cash and in kind donations worth eighty nine million dollars to hundreds of grassroots environmental groups. The North Faces Explore Fund spends half a million dollars a year supporting projects that help people access the outdoors and the conservation. Alliance Co founded by the two brands in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine has given more than twenty million dollars to North American conservation groups. The origins of the North Face Patagonia politics were there from the moment. They started as a hobby. Jobs of two dirtbag pals since then. The two companies have reached heights. Neither founder could have imagined on the way they've survived near fatal falls defied convention and inspired millions to head outdoors today. They boast combined annual revenues of more than four billion dollars Patagonia. The North base of both come a long long way but even now so many years and billions later these two companies are still kindred spirits to competitive dirtbag brothers looking for the next peak.

"On the last episode Patagonia was hit by the recession while bankruptcy loomed over the north face after it over expanded now. They're both licking their wounds in setting out on divergent paths. Patagonia stopped chasing growth and put planet before profit. The North face is now on the Nasdaq and pushing to become a billion dollar brand but it's lower price tech wear line. In new summit shops are failing to deliver the sky. High growth companies told investors to expect. And now the north face is about to resort to subterfuge to cover its mistakes in order to maintain its assent this is episode five rescue mission. Its December nineteen ninety. Seven and in an inconspicuous office in Connecticut. The North faces thirty nine year old finance chief. Christopher Crawford is out to salvage bad quarter. He sitting down with a rep from a barter company. Bader companies are corporate swap shops places where businesses can offload. Merck's didn't sell in exchange for other services or goods. Crawford's hoping this company will make his Christmas by relieving the North Face of the excess inventory. Clogging up its warehouses. The unsold surplus spans the company's entire range from Mango Colored Mountain Light Jackets and Black. Willie hats to Merlo Hugh Tundra pile vests and hot shot day packs these unwanted items are more than a storage cost. They're also money locked up in fabric money. The North face can't reclaim until the garment is sold. The REP taps and figures into the spreadsheet on his PC interns to Crawford. Okay Mr Crawford will accept the inventory at the full wholesale price Crawford fields relief flooding his body with this deal. The North face will get paid. It's full profit margin on its unsold gear. But there's a catch and that catch is that this will not be a cash deal the coordinator glances at his spreadsheet again. So that's seven point. Eight million dollars in trade credits. The North based can redeem those credits for goods and services offered by other companies in our network. We've got advertising agencies. We've got printers Crawford cuts in. Actually I I've got a condition. I need a veto on who you sell. The inventory to the north face is a premium brand. We can't discount stores flooded with our product. That's not a problem. Get the contract draft over to you later this week Crawford leaves in an upbeat mood. He's just offloaded. The North faces unsold gear and more importantly made a sale that will show up the company's soggy fourth quarter sales or so. He thinks a few days later at the north basis headquarters in San Leandro California. The barter company faxes over the contract. There's just one thing Crawford needs to check Crawford. Picks up his desk phone calls the north faces onto. Hey It's Christopher I'm about to sign off on a barter deal. They're buying our excess inventory for the full wholesale price and they're paying in trade credits. How do I list Prophet in our accounts in short you? Don't you can't count. Trade credits is dollars earned. Doing so violates generally accepted Accounting Principles Gab. Crawford's eyes widen the north face. Needs this deal on the books. If the millions from the barter trade aren't in the figures investors might run scared in the company. Stock Price could tumble after getting his shock and check. Crawford calls the bar companies representative to reopen negotiations. He knows all cash isn't going to fly so we offers the next best option need alter our agreement. I need the DEAL TO BE HALF CASH. Half trade credits. Oh well Mr Crawford. We're not going to pay cash when the North Bay skin veto who we sell the items to your tying our hands and making this deal too. Risky. Let's face it if you could sell the inventory through your normal channels. You wouldn't have come to us. Proffered purses his lips. Okay Okay how about this? The North face will guarantee that you will recover at least sixty percent of the price when you resell the product and if you will make up the difference by buying back the merchandise oh well that changes everything given that guarantee we'd be willing to bake it apart cash part credit deal over the next month. The North base ads the barter transaction to books it counts all the cash as Prophet. Even though under the terms of Crawford's guarantee to the barter company the North face could find itself buying back the year. Then the north face makes another sneaky. Move IT SPLITS. The trade credits across two quarters. Split into the amounts involved fall below the threshold that would force the auditor to strike the sale from the accounts and despite knowing the barter transactions are being counted in the figures the auditor deems the amount immaterial and signed it off the move delivers a five million dollar boost. The company's nineteen ninety-seven Results and another two point. Four million in nineteen ninety eight but the ruse won't go unnoticed.

Weird Growth Experiment: What Neil Learned Spending $162,301 on Clothes
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Patel and today we're GonNa talk about a weird growth experiment which is really what Neil learn over one hundred sixty two thousand dollars on clothes so Neil. This is fun episode. Because you're GONNA do most of the heavy lifting so what exactly happened here because he actually wrote something about this a while back as a blog post so tell us what happened so years ago when I was less known house out there hustling much more. I need to go back to doing that. I decided to try to run an experiment. Where if I dress nicer would I be able to charge people more money and make more money so I decided to spend a ton of money on clothes? I probably spend too much and when I would go to business meetings. I'll make shows super nice. You know and see if it would help me. Close more deals in generate more income. Got IT and so. Tell us the process here. I mean the the one hundred sixty two thousand. Did you pick out the clothes? Like what did you do exactly? What kind of clothes were you wearing at in? Pick why she closed or anything like that. I picked me these suits briefcases nice shoes. Think of business attire. But extremely nice business attire things like dull Jacobina Tom for burberry Tana Kashmir little beyond stuff like that Yup. Did you pick up the stuff yourself? I had other people helped me pick out the clothes so what I quickly learned is mainly did this when I was in Las Vegas and I was living there and I lived literally right on the strips. Also close to a lot of the shopping. What I learned is if you spend enough they actually come to your house with racks of Clothes Anna Taylor you. They don't charge you extra for that. They just bring stuff you try it on you get fitted and then once it's done they bring it back to your house and by the way I mean some of that's you still have that look like whenever people see you. It's not like you're wearing suits all the time. It's your worrying. You have a casual look but it's nice clothes correct correct yes well technically now just like a bum. There's nothing wrong with being Bomba. I dress really poorly at this point. I thought you're still wearing nice. You just like a bomb. But you're still wearing nice stuff. Probably might t shirts four hundred dollars so my point is when you look at Neil. He dresses fairly casually. But you can tell. It's still nice stuff. I think that's the point. I'm trying to get people to visualize it a little bit. So maybe let's talk about the before and after results before maybe you weren't wearing as nice stuff and then you started wearing nice stuff like what exactly happened. Can you share any case studies? Yeah so when I go to in person meetings to try to close deals Mike. Closing ratio went up from twenty five percent to forty percent which was huge and innocence brought me over six hundred ninety two thousand dollars in revenue now. That doesn't mean prophecy. That doesn't necessarily mean it pays for the close. It just means I brought in extra revenue and keep them on pitching enterprise big corporations and I think why it worked really well was is because people like all right this guy successful portraying a bigger company and yet. Maybe he's worth the price that he's quoting. I also do believe that its regional base. You know places like Los Angeles Seattle New York Chicago. I think it matters a bit more places like San Francisco. I don't think it matters as much. Yup that's completely true and I mean I mean the typical look as you're wearing like Patagonia vast or something like that and then you're wearing all birds and you're good to go exactly and I also think it depends what phase you are in life because depending on what phase you are in life in business Helps as much in Class A fear. Reid Hoffman Co founder of link Denmark. I don't think it matters what you wear your hundred percent so I mean that's a four point. Three X return to six ninety two on the one sixty two so I guess you know looking at things from a personal experience here. I used to just have a backpack like a normal back. You know meal night. We have a late friend named Brandon who he had kind of a similar back as I do. We look like school kids but once you switched up his backpack to a nice Pat toomey backpack. That's T U M I. He said like everything changed. When you went to route people will compliment on his backpack and then he would get seen a little differently even though he dressed casually. I changed my backpack and I know how to me backpack to and I will say I get a lot of Nice comments about it and people do the first impression how people see you. You'll get one chance to make it right so you know. Even let's say you still want to continue to dress casually that's fine. Maybe you look at the other stuff. Maybe the briefcase right or maybe look at the backpack because you do typically get a couple of nice comments about like Neil the briefcase you have generally. It's always something people talk about right not anymore because I have a child and she plays with the zippers breaks. It and all that kind of stuff in the east you. Yeah makes sense so yeah guys. I don't think you necessarily need to spend one hundred sixty two thousand dollars on clothes. I think we're just saying Zara or any place has affordable clothing. Alex Niccolo unique goes good. I don't know where you go for female codes. Nic Business Attire. It's not necessarily the price it's more so the fit. Yep exactly I that's a really good point you don't necessarily is spent thousands of thousands of dollars if you get a good Taylor. That's probably a little more important on to make sure things look fit. They look a million bucks.

"It's July nineteen sixty eight and in Ventura California Doug Tompkins and avant garde are loading the final batch of supplies into a grubby cream colored Ford van. It's been a busy couple of weeks. Since they dreamt up their plan to go to Patagonia. She persuaded his business partner. Tom Frost who runs she? Narda equipment in his absence. They've also recruited to Powell's to join them on their six month trip and Chris and their gang. The Fun hearts after packing the Van Food Skis close reels of film tents and sleeping bags they strapped their surfboards to the Roof Tompkins checks the handwritten list of supplies and equipment. That's everything we're ready to roll. Just then Tompkins Wife. Susie reaches into her bag and pulls out a bed sheet. One more thing this Tomkins unfurled bedsheet and grins painted in big white letters on the sheet or the words Viva Las Fun hogs after. Tompkins kisses his wife and baby daughter. Goodbye the fun hogs pile into the van. Start the engine and head South Week later. They're surfing in Mexico and Guatemala. They get questioned at gunpoint by soldiers who think they're CIA agents. Costa Rica and erupting volcano forces them to flee at high speed as ash rains down in terms their surfboards. Black in Peru. They ski sand dunes the size of hills before heading to Chile to carve the powder on a snow covered volcano. Then it's on to Patagonia where civilization vanishes in the rear view mirror and the road fades into rocks and he'd soon the gnarly eleven thousand foot summit about Fitzroy looms into view storm. Clouds Shroud the mountain. An angry bone chilling men's ripped through the valley below. They carve out a cold wet and cramped ice cave the base of the mountain to shelter from the wind and rain. They spend weeks in the cave waiting for a break in the weather. Endless days spent in damp sleeping bags recounting stories and playing cards then late one evening. Tompkins steps out of a cave. The skies are finally clear. He turns to his fellow fund. Hogs this is guys the moment we've been waiting for time to get ready the fun hogs no the clear skies won't last so they start the ascent to thirty in the morning under the cover of darkness.

"patagonia" Discussed on Business Wars
"In our new series we follow the trail blazed by two of the biggest names in outdoor apparel the North face and Patagonia today. These giants have outdoor attire boasts combined revenues of nearly four billion dollars a year and their clothes are as common on city. Streets is mountain slopes but their story is about way. More than dollars earned. It's also the story of two companies with shared roots and their battle to stay true to the values that were founded on but when these two companies took their first steps in the nineteen sixties. Mountaineering was a niche hobby. No one imagined mountain where would become a fashion staple. The outdoor industry was run by people who just wanted to make enough scratch to fund their next expedition. This is episode one dirtbags. It's nine hundred sixty four and Doug Tompkins. Fumbles for change in a telephone booth in downtown San Francisco. He pops a dive into the slot dials. The operator and asks to be connected with von Cunard's home in Burbank California connecting you now Sir Tomkins drums his fingers and mutters to himself. Please be home. Please be home easby home. Residents von Speaking Yvonne. I'm on a payphone so I can't talk long but I'm starting a business. A mail order business. Selling high quality climbing and hiking here is going to sell everything serious. Outdoorsman need so people can get everything they want in one place sounds cool. What are you calling it? The North face seemed appropriate after Mount Temple. Good name but Tompkins once more than ours approval. He needs products for the north face to sell and for that. He needs Shuna hard. You see shipyards not just a climber. He's also blacksmith back. In nineteen fifty seven he bought a secondhand hammer anvil and ever since he's been making and selling climbing batons piton of the pegs climbers hammer into rock faces to support their ascents most batons are made from soft iron. Which means they break. If pulled out of the rock but yards batons are different. He makes his from steel. And because their steel they're strong enough to reuse shards. Been selling them on a small scale but now Tompkins wants his new retail venture to stock them. So I wanted to ask you sell me your towns at a wholesale price so I can put them in our catalog sure sure. How many do you need? And I'm thinking maybe if we went to the operator. Your three minutes are up. Damn money's run out Yvonne. I'll mail your first order by. But Tompkins isn't the only one about to turn his love of climbing into a paycheck and that's because shards. Transforming his piton making sideline into a proper business. It's nineteen sixty five and in Ventura California craggy-faced landlord unlocks the padlock on a chain fence gate. And pulls it aside? He turned to avant Cunard and his climbing. Tom and beckons them inside an this way. The two climbers followed the landlord through the grounds of a now abandoned slaughterhouse. She naarden frost or here searching for a home for their new business. Shoe art equipment. Last fall they wowed tight-knit climbing world by making the first ascent of the near Vertical North American wall of El Capitan in Yosemite. And ever since there's been a rising tide of climbers mailing shoe with orders for his steel piton. So now she naarden frost out to tap into that demand by starting a business that designs makes and sells peons and other climbing hardware. They're not after riches they just want a few more dollars to fund their climbing trips. They also want to be based somewhere where they can lay down their tools and head to the beach. Whenever the SURF's up this sleepy beachside town is perfect. They both stopped through the premises after the landlord. She yards short muscular guy with a determined. Look on his face. Frost follows behind. He's being poll thin with a crew. Cut that accentuates years. The landlord leads them to the ramshackle building that used to be the Slaughterhouse Boiler Room. It's about the size of a small store and made out of car gated ten. Well boys here. It is like I told you. It ain't much but it's cheap step inside the ten shed. It's gloomy mid small. The roof probably leaks and the grounds uneven. And it's exactly what they're looking for a dirtbag home for a dirtbag company within weeks. She moved his blacksmith gear into the shed and Shenar. Equipment is in business. Not that shoe. Narc CONSIDERS HIMSELF AN ENTREPRENEUR. He sees himself as a craftsman and artisan who makes climbing equipment the traditional way with a hammer and an advil. It's like the industrial revolution. Never happened all the same she yards. Timing is spot on in the mid sixties climbing is still a niche hobby. But it's growing more and more people are looking to reconnect with nature by heading outdoors to hike and climb nowhere. Is that trend? More evident than in the San Francisco Bay area. And that's inspired shoe. Narves Buddy Doug Tompkins to move the North Bay from a mail order. Operation run from his kitchen table and into brick and mortar. It's October nineteen sixty. Six and in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood and opening party for the North Bay store is underway. The store might be new to this Bohemian corner of the city. But it fits right in with the radical bookstores beat poets and strip joints that define it in the north faces. Window is a huge poster of Bob Dylan at the door to hells angels. Stand glowering and sleeveless denim shirts inside a hot new local bands playing live. They call themselves the grateful dead as women in Flowing Gypsy style. Dresses and beaten guys enroll necked jumpers sway to the music. Doug Tompkins handout glasses of wine. He's having a great time even though no one's paying attention to this sleeping bags tents piton ropes on display. But he wouldn't have it any other way. Is he just like vonts yards climbing hardware business? Tompkins didn't start the north face to get rich for him. It's about embracing the outdoors lifestyle and for Tompkins. That lifestyle always comes first. It's spring nineteen sixty seven and in the north face store a customer's checking out the store sleeping bags while Tompkins watches the clock from behind the counter. Work days seem to last forever. Excuse me I'm going climbing in Castle Rock Colorado and I need a new bag. Which do you recommend? Tompkins looks at the customer with envy since opening the store. He spending more time helping others pick out climbing gear and scaling mountains himself. Well for maximum more if you WANNA go with the model two hundred if you want. Lightweight it's the model one hundred. Thanks I'll take the one hundred and it's going to be a great trip. We're thinking of doing the athlete's feet route you know the one Royal Robbins did North base founders zones out the customer Jabar's away. This isn't the way it was supposed to be. The store was supposed to subsidize a life of climbing instead. It's just become a job. Something's gotTa Change. And then he has an idea that makes us smile creep across his face. It's time to dump the north face a few weeks later. Tompkins sells his store to two brothers for fifty thousand dollars not bad for a one store business that struggling to break even the brothers open to more north face stores in the bay area only to find they can't cover the costs the demand. Just isn't there America's yet to discover its passion for outdoor sports a year later after losing sixty thousand dollars the companies up for sale again and in May nineteen sixty eight they find a buyer an ambitious Stanford. Mba named HAB clump. He pays sixty thousand dollars for the north face. This former high school quarterbacks got a plan a plan that will transform the North Base. From just another dirtbag outdoor store into the flag bearer of a new industry but while the north faces new owner is settling in the company's founders. Enjoying his return to dirtbag life. It's June nineteen sixty eight in. Tompkins is spending the Day with Dr Surfing on Ventura Beach. Tompkins squats down on the Board. Is Seawater sprays. His Tanto arrives the way to the shore which is board under his arm jobs across the warm golden sand to wear short sitting. She barely acknowledges his return. He's too engrossed in the book. He's reading Tompkins flops. Onto the beach towel next shenar rolls on his back and puts his hands behind his head to look up at the blue sky. What's your reading conquerors of the useless by Leeann l? Teret it tells the story of how he made the first ascent of Mount Fitzroy in Patagonia. Back at fifty two. He says it was his greatest and toughest climb. Fitzroy's only been climbed one time since then the mention of Patagonia brings a smile to Tompkins Lips. He went to that vast mysterious Argentine wilderness. A few years back Patagonia's amazing Yvonne. H- you'd love it. What a challenge. Fitzroy would be. That's a great idea. We could drive the whole way. Make it a real adventure surf in Mexico. Ski and chilly. Eat the local foods strength. The local spirits to we could also film it. Make a movie out of it. We'll need what six months? The smile on Girard's face Vanishes Doug. I got responsibilities now. A business to run. And you've got a kid to go quiet annoyed by realities intrusion on their daydreaming. But they're thinking the same thing screw business screw responsibility. Tompkins is the first one in the water. We're going to do this right. Yeah we are. They are adventurers dirtbags and responsibilities. Well they're just another obstacle to overcome by sunset. Their minds are made up. They're leaving for Patagonia and it's going to be the adventure of a lifetime and adventure that will transform them and in time the world.
How Long Does It Stay on Surfaces? How Long Can We Rely On Amazon Delivery?
"From the weekend. Our young ace symptomatic cases the key to spreading the virus. Should we rethink the conventional wisdom around facemasks? How long can the virus stay on surfaces?

More people have now died from the corona virus outside of China than have died inside China since the disease. I emerged airline Cathay. Pacific is adding flights from US cities and London to Hong Kong because since the disease seems to be relatively under control in Hong Kong at the moment some people are seeing Hong Kong as a safe haven and are rushing to travel there a mere seven weeks ago. Hong Kong had implemented travel restrictions because of its proximity to mainland China. Italy reported three hundred sixty eight deaths in a single day yesterday. A twenty five percent increase making this the deadliest twenty four hour period thus far worse than the deadliest day in Wuhan's outbreak. Italy has reported two hundred deaths for each of the last three days. Italy only had its first. Colonel Related Death three weeks ago now. More than eighteen hundred people have died because of overloaded hospitals. The fatality rate and Lamberti is nine percent in the rest of Italy. The fatality rate is five point one percent Spanish health authorities reported two thousand New Corona virus cases in twenty four hours on Sunday bringing the total in the country of Spain to eight thousand cases with two hundred eighty eight deaths as the number of people who have died of the virus more than doubled in twenty four hours as the Spanish death. Toll was up from one hundred thirty six a day earlier. That is an increase of almost one hundred percent. Spain is clearly on. The Italian trajectory is France. Next it certainly seems to be going that way quoting the New York Times. France announced the closing of all non indispensable businesses including restaurants bars and movie theaters after a sharp uptick in corona virus cases. The number of French cases past five thousand four hundred twenty on Sunday with one hundred and twenty seven deaths on Saturday. Three hundred corona virus patients were in critical condition half of them under sixty years of age on Sunday. Francis Transportation Minister said the country would begin reducing plane train and bus services between cities and quote. I'd like to end the segment with some potentially good news from Italy Adrenal Aguzzi. A professor of neuro pathology and Switzerland just north of the troubled Italian region of Lombardy tweeted a chart this weekend that showed that even with the surge in deaths in Italy over the last few days the death rate is deviating ever so slightly from exponential growth. It's early days. But the lockdown might be beginning to work linked to the chart. I'm referencing in the show. Notes and Chen He wa. The European Bureau chief for China Daily tweeted this quote. Just read that Chinese medical team sent to Italy to fight Kovic nineteen comprises mostly experienced doctors from Sichuan Sichuan folks still remember how an Italian rescue team during the devastating. Two Thousand Eight Wenchuan earthquake saved many lives. The world needs more of US helping each other and quote. There has been a lot of justified. I think hand-wringing about the scenes of people going to bars and restaurants even to Disney world. This weekend seemingly unworried about anything that is going on. This is obviously a problem for one. Big reason potential transmission from people who might not know they already have the disease indeed. There is increasing evidence that it is young people people without symptoms that might be the key driver of the spread of Corona Virus. Even more so than we realized quoting. Cnn New Studies in several countries and a large corona virus outbreak in Massachusetts Bring into question reassuring assertions by US officials about the way the novel virus spreads it appears that a Massachusetts Corona virus cluster. With at least eighty two cases was started by people who are not yet showing symptoms and more than a half dozen studies have shown that people without symptoms are causing substantial amounts of infection several experts interviewed by CNN. Said while it's unclear. Exactly what percentage of the transmission in the outbreak is fueled by people who are obviously sick versus those who have no symptoms or very mild symptoms? It is becoming clear that transmission by people who are as symptomatic or mildly symptomatic is responsible for more transmission than previously thought and quote. Indeed scientists seem to be coming to the conclusion that this is what makes corona virus so insidious it can spread far before it even sickens both mergers and SARS tend to be only spread by symptomatic people. But if you get cova did you might have spread it to fifty other people before you even know it. Add to that what we've previously discussed about how scientists suspect that you're more contagious earlier. On in the disease in a study of twenty four passengers who had just flown from Israel seven tested positive for corona virus of which four had no symptoms and the viral load of specimens from a symptomatic patients was higher than from the three patients. Who had symptoms thus the global move toward social distancing? Stay home stay out of large crowds status small crowds. There's a link to chart in the show notes that shows the difference between two towns in Italy. The two are Bergamo and loyalty. Loyalty actually had the first cove in nineteen case reported before Bergamo reported. Its first but Loki. Shut down their town February. Twenty Third Burgum. Oh waited until almost a week later by March thirteenth lucky only had around a thousand cases of corona virus and those case numbers seem to be leveling out while Burgum oh has seen case numbers shoot up to two thousand five hundred and young people. I'm talking to you. Data from South Korea where they test everyone they can is suggesting that. Thirty percent of the carriers in that country where aged twenty to twenty nine. If that's not enough to convince you let me point you to an actual animation. It is literally just balls. Dancing around and environment randomly representing infections over time. Look at what happens to the infection curve when only a quarter of a population continues to circulate and three quarters of a population practice social distancing. The infection rate is significantly slowed and with extensive distancing with seven eighths of a population staying home. The infection curve is stopped almost in its tracks. These are powerful animations but they are only animations only simulations made to educate on a concept. The concept is however. This is joke. If you can stay home let me quote. The last paragraph from the story accompanying the simulation quote in one crucial respect. These simulations are nothing like reality. Unlike simulations cove nineteen can kill though. The fatality rate is not precisely known. It is clear that the elderly members of our community are most at risk from dying from covered. One thousand nine hundred quote if you want this to be more realistic. A scientist was quoted after seeing a preview of the story some of the DOTS should disappear and quote link to the simulation is of course in the show. Notes questions are being raised as to whether or not more of US should be wearing face masks. Even if we're not showing signs of corona virus infection authorities in China already mandate the wearing of masks in all public places whether or not people are sick or healthy quoting from ink stone since late January Chinese authorities and major cities have enforced rules on wearing face masks in public spaces including detaining. Those who tried to use public transport without a mask and quote in South Korea and Japan is also required. That mask be worn by healthy people in crowded places but in much of the rest of the world including here in the US. It's advised that only people displaying symptoms should wear masks as just mentioned the possibility that corona virus can be spread by a symptomatic. People is causing some to argue for more widespread use of masks quoting again from ink stone. A symptomatic transmission has been reported in multiple countries in which a spreader is responsible for sickening others without knowing it in January at cluster. Thirteen infections was believed to have started with a British man who contracted the virus during a trip to Singapore and spread it to others on a skiing trip in the French Alps and back home in the United Kingdom all the while showing no signs of infection himself quote researchers writing in the Lancet suggested that in light of this current national advice may need updating to deal specifically with Ron Virus quoting from the peace. If everyone puts on a mask in public spaces it would help to remove stigmatization that has hitherto discouraged masking of symptomatic patients in many places. Furthermore transmission from asymmetric infected individuals has been documented for Kobe. Nineteen and viral load is particularly high at early disease. Stage masking as a public health intervention would probably intercept the transmission link and prevent these apparently healthy infectious sources and quote. All of that said as of right now. The advice remains to only wear a mask if you are displaying symptoms helping to conserve the mask as a resource masks are in short supply and are needed for medical practitioners. Who them more than the rest of us. In order to safely treat people not get sick themselves and thus stay on the job. A new study has revealed the length of time that Kobe nineteen can remain viable on common surfaces. The study so new that it is yet to be. Peer reviewed found that Corona virus was most stable on plastic and stainless steel with viable virus being detected up to seventy two hours on those surfaces after application it can also remain viable for up to twenty four hours on cardboard and up to four hours on copper. The researchers noted that these decay timings were similar to those found with the two thousand and two two thousand. Three SARS virus suggesting that quote differences in the epidemiology of these viruses likely arise from other factors including high viral loads in the upper respiratory tract and the potential for individuals infected with cove nineteen to shed and transmit the virus while a symptom matic and quote. There are presently two hundred and seventy four surface disinfectants approved by the EPA for use against Kovic Nineteen Link to the list is in the show notes at this point with store shelves increasingly bear. I'm sure a lot of us are continuing to rely on delivery especially Amazon prime delivery to keep ourselves stocked up with everything we need so that we can shelter in place. Avoid going out to stores as much as possible and just generally socially distance well an article and vices motherboard talking about the broader strains to workers in the sorting facilities and also the people who have to deliver our stuff makes the point that maybe our delivery systems are endangered as well quote. Motherboards spoke to Amazon Logistics Labor experts. Who say it's only a matter of time? Before Amazon's prime signature two day delivery promise serious delays mistakes and widespread shortages due to increased demands from consumers also pressure on workers to meet rising production quotas restrictions on trade and the possibility of fulfillment centers being. Shut DOWN AS CORONA VIRUS SPREADS. Amazon's warehouse workers. Say they're already seeing increased workloads while fewer of their colleagues are showing up to work. According Labor organizers already Amazon's white collar workers have been asked to work from home. But that's obviously not an option for warehouse fulfillment workers and delivery drivers quote. It seems really likely that. Amazon's prime delivery system will falter Daniel flaming president of Economic Roundtable and an author of the two thousand nineteen report on Amazon's economic impact on southern California told motherboard. One day deliveries may not be made within one day if the workers who do show up to warehouses are more stress given bigger routes and are possibly less experienced incorrect deliveries will be made. The last mile segment of the delivery is very labor intensive and quote flaming ads. That were likely to see a close parallel of what happens in Amazon warehouses. During the holiday rush increase delays mistakes and bottlenecks. It would seem to me. Most likely that we'll see a drop in reliability and timeliness and quote but more than that the fear here is the same with the health system basically if too many people involved in the Amazon delivery chain are even temporarily sidelined by the disease at the same time. It's possible that even Amazon delivery could go down to say nothing of the potential disruption to the supply chain I e if even Amazon can't source enough goods to
Live From The HIBT Summit: David Neeleman of JetBlue Airways
"The PODCAST. You talked about how as a young man you did a mission as a Mormon you went to Brazil bill and he hit to spend a lotta time knocking on doors and having this slammed in your face and I'm curious to sort of talk more about the connection between between that experience and your ability as an early stage entrepreneur to handle the kind of rejection you would face. It was interesting because before I went went and did this. You know my my mission experience. I had not succeeded really anything in my life. I've talked a lot about my attention deficit disorder which I really didn't know I had. I just thought it was really stupid because I couldn't really learn in school if you ask me today. What books do you read it in high school? I can't tell you one. Single no book are in high school. I went to Public School in Utah. But I don't know talk about kill mockingbird and I didn't read that book I didn't read any of these books so because I couldn't I didn't. I was functionally illiterate. You couldn't sit down and absorb could. Is your breakfast one nine was. I can tell you everything I was thinking about when i read that page page except for what was on that page. Yeah and so. I hadn't had any six. I went task. I think I got sixteen on it and my adviser said you got eight on the English section. If you did just see on any question you got twelve so I felt like people. That kids are pretty sharp kid but he but I just didn't have any confidence so being able to go and have this experience at nineteen years of age be plucked from your life and put into a completely different environment breath and to be able to learn a foreign language and to be able to kind of learn from a new land and it just had a profound influence on me and it changed my life. If in ways that you know two years of that I couldn't have gotten in college and I I came home confident and I felt like I could do anything. I mean one of the things that we've talked about in an you've known the passes that there seems to be a high number of entrepreneurs you've been on the show who have attention deficit disorder or some form of it. It either diagnosed on diagnosed. I mean having attention deficit disorder is a struggle in school. But you gotTa have some positives from it. And when I I found out I had got it and I self diagnosed myself because my mom semi this book called Driven to distraction was like twenty one criteria and it was all negative things like you can't I can't you're disorganized. You can't get started you and every single one of those and I got to the last one and it said you have this unusual ability to hyper focus. And when you hyper focus on something you're the best in the world. You can absolutely become a world expert in no time at all because you obsessed with it and it it becomes part of you and I said well that that's me in so you have that all that kind of negative stuff which you can solve by just hiring good people can fix all that and then you have this ability just to hone in on things and this really complicated things and just simplify them. You know might teams David. It's not that simple as yes he is. He's not that complicated. So you look at US complex solution. You simplify it and you put yourself in the shoes of the consumer and you can just create something you know. A lot of you here are entrepreneurs but if you're not in the shower every morning thing in your mind isn't racing one hundred miles an hour about something that you're going to do different than everybody else. And you're excited. Just get out and get dried off and get dressed in start your day because you have this idea this gripping you then you know maybe not an entrepreneur and it's something that just comes from I've been well. I want to kind of drill down on this idea because I mean you could make the argument like with optimism or gritter perseverance. That it's intuitive right that to be entrepreneurs intuitive. I'm not so sure that I believe that. Based on all the people who've been on the show I think there are some people who just are not. You wouldn't peg them to be entrepreneurs I I lean Fisher for example who create an incredibly successful clothing line. Yvonne Artaud Patagonia Natural. You wouldn't necessarily think that he would be much more four. I wonder whether it's something like for you. You get up in the morning. You're in the shower. You can't stop thinking about this idea. You can't thinking about the next idea but I can't help but think that it's something that you can also develop and cultivate. Yeah I think you can. I mean it's harder I mean. I have a son who started a company in College. He's making like eight hundred dollars a day prophet From starting to company on campus. I remember talking doc. News teacher in the third grade. And she said Seth just sits in the back of the room and he comes up with stuff out of the blue. We've never thought of before you know. How did he ask that question? Russian you know and not scholastically straight as from when he was a little kid but you just have this ability innate ability think things differently now. How you train yourself to do that yes you can but it takes a lot of work and I had? This is the other day where I was listening to your podcast for every person that makes it on your podcast. I wonder how many tens of thousands or millions never made it. You know it's hard and it takes a lot of perseverance you can do it. And that's exciting and each one of you in this room can make it happen but just by saying it and wanting to be doesn't mean
Google Eyes San Jose For a New Campus
"Valley is home to countless companies and their employees but as those companies have grown. They've caused the cost of living in the area to skyrocket and created a housing was in crisis. But it's getting crowded. Another star companies are expanding to other cities cities that are learning to be cautious about the potential harm. That could come with. These is new businesses that brings us to Google. They're looking to build a new campus. In San Jose and Tech reporter Rob Copeland has been checking it out. Rob Thanks for joining joining us. Thank you for having me so tell us about what this New Campus in San. Jose is supposed to look like so to understand Dan. This you have to take a step back and realize that Silicon Valley is sort of a hot word but SAN JOSE is right on the edge of it. It's in the South Bay it's about about depending on the traffic could be two two and a half hours south of San Francisco so this is sort of the hinterlands of Silicon Valley. It's it's barely there and what Google has said is we need a ton of new space for twenty five thousand additional employees so we have to start looking at these places that we weren't willing to go to before four so they're looking to build a giant campus twice as much office space as the Empire State building around what is not a particularly attractive neighborhood in in San Jose. Now you mentioned the Empire State Building that is a very tall building with many many floors as is very typical for New York City. I'm guessing they're not going to take up a very small space and Make a skyscraper in the middle of San Jose Correct San Jose like most of the bay area and in fact like almost everywhere we were in California outside of La in a few blocks in San Francisco is extremely SM- sprawling. It's not a skyscraper place. So here we're talking about about an extended campus along a river. Google hasn't said exactly how tall the buildings will be. But we're looking at ten twenty maybe one building of twenty five stories and it's really going to transform what is a bunch of parking lots Into perhaps a new city so one would assume that a place that just has a bunch of parking lots and is on the very edge of Silicon Valley would be thrilled to have google come in and set up a headquarters there. How is San Jose reacting will well? That's the really interesting thing. The traditional theory here is you know everyone wants to be Rochester with Kodak or they WanNa be Hershey with Hershey. But there's a big difference between between how the San Jose city leadership feels about Google. And how a lot of residents to the city leadership says hey a huge employer our residents need jobs and and frankly they pay taxes that we can fund schools and all sorts of other obviously city services but at public hearings. And when I've spent a lot of time in San Jose as talking to residents they feared the other end of this the gentrification and the getting pushed out of their homes than the feeling frankly that San Dan Jose will change culturally. It will just be another place full of tech frozen Patagonia fleeces and not just a cultural aspect right. I mean there's an affordability ludi questioned. That happens when people with a lot of money come into a town. That isn't used to those kinds of incomes right exactly. This is a problem acute problem in the bay area. And it's a problem in California at large California's incredibly popular place to set up a business particularly in tech or entertainment but local regulations. Make it close to impossible to build new housing. So this isn't exactly rocket science here if you've taken one economics class or if you've wikipedia supply and demand if you've got a whole bunch of new rich employees coming in and you're not building new homes. They'RE GONNA bid up the price of existing homes and that's GonNa make it too expensive for the people who live in those homes now. I'm thinking this reminds me a lot of when Amazon announced plans to build a second heart headquarters One in Virginia and then one here in New New York that didn't go over so well. With residents in New York and in fact those plans were and ended up being Scrapped completely Amazon. Pulled out of New York. How outed Google go about trying to win over San Jose right so there are some important differences but also some similarities? The big differences Amazon ran what was essentially a beauty contest. They went to a bunch of cities including frankly a lot of them they were never going to move to and they said make us. Your best offer gives us tax credits convince us why we should come to you. And at the end of the day that led to the axing of you know H Q two in New York. Google has said few really important things here one no tax credits. They say we're going to actually pay San Jose above and beyond what the law says. We don't want money from them. We're GONNA give that money. They have also said. We're not running a competitive process. You know we're not going to go to the next city over. If this doesn't work for San Jose were just in it for San Jose. We want this to work in San Jose and and the The other bit is that Google is not just talking to the city about housing. You know they're lobbying the state they're making contributions to community groups. You can be cynical or you can not but they do appear to be trying to be a bit more of a corporate citizen here. Why do they want to go to San Jose? What is San Jose have to offer that? They're so excited about so. San Jose is is at the very bottom of Silicon Valley. But it's right around a train station and this isn't that sexy but it's true if you could get workers to take the train from San Francisco South to San Jose you can have a faster way for them to get to work and you could potentially attract better talent and San. Jose is a big city right. You know I was actually surprised when I started this project few months ago. San Jose is the tenth biggest city in the country. This is a huge city on its own right and it already has big problems. You Walk through downtown. There's punishing homelessness and there aren't any easy solutions there. So the idea that you would take all this open space and you build offices for tech workers is. It's a difficult pitch for some people. Is this a tide shift. I mean is it just Google being a corporate citizen or tech companies realizing that not just winning over a local officials is not going to get them the headquarters that they want your exactly right. The problem is these tech giants are sort of the big bad wolf wolf right now. And it's not just in housing and it's not just in San Jose and when you talk to executives out here which is you know we have a whole office of people and that's what we do all day. They're sort of shocked that the our companies are considered. You know the enemy so this is an effort at a very important juncture for Google which is under investigation nation by the government to sort of put. Its most friendly foot forward and to try to make this work. We've also seen tech companies responding to their airport in the housing crisis in California. Just for people who aren't there. Can you just give us some perspective and some scope on how big of an issue the housing crisis is in the the bay area and why people in San Jose could be really concerned. Seen somebody like Google come in a company like go come in. So here's a really telling stat. FACEBOOK FACEBOOK has a program in which they will pay the difference in rent for a handful of teachers in Palo Alto which is very rich town right by facebook headquarters so facebook has said. If you're a teacher and you can't afford to live in Palo Alto. We will pay the difference between your rent and thirty percent of income so a unreasonable rent and facebook is paying more than thirty thousand dollars a year in rent subsidies for these teachers as thirty thousand dollars ahead there. So there's a huge gap between what quote regular people make and how much you'd have to make to just live so this is a crisis. That's getting worse. Frankly not better. And it's something that affects. Frankly everyone in the bay area you know from facebook isn't the only big company that's done stuff like this right. I mean apple has committed. Did two point. Five billion dollars for affordable housing in California. Google has already done and meet some land donations in San Francisco so we are seeing them. Address is this issue but obviously that's just kind of the tip of the iceberg to direct via situation that they were largely part of creating. What's next for Google and San Jose? How close are we to seeing this deal actually announced? This is a very important year for Google and San Jose before the end of the year. We're going to see the San Jose City Council. Vote on this over the next few months. Google is going to come out with its quote community packages basically the money. It's willing to pay a to various groups in San Jose to build affordable housing to build homeless shelters to set aside areas for park land. So this is going to be a big negotiation in a big back and forth. And let's not forget Google search engine. It's a big advertising company and it's a public company at the end of the day if it doesn't make sense for shareholders it's not GonNa do it would rob Copeland reporting from San Francisco. Thanks so much for joining us so much
Satellites to monitor whale strandings from space
"Now we all know that whales of big but big enough to be spotted from space well scientists say they developed a new technique for analyzing satellite images that allows him to spot the mass stranding of great whales from space they've been using high resolution satellites to analyze the largest recorded event which saw three hundred and forty wells wash up on the coast of Chile four years ago the study concluded that many more died in that incident the first thought of science correspondent Jonathan a most ripples from high above the earth it's not easy to see an individual object even one as large as a great while but the British in Chilean team believes the capability of Martin satellites now makes this a practical task they use some of the shop is satellite pictures available to reassess the mass stranding of say whales that took place over a large and very remote region of Patagonia in twenty fifteen the scientists identified many more dead whales in their space data from the plane and boat surveys did at the time the researchers say satellites could now become the basis of a new alert system especially if the detections can be automated getting to the scene of a stranding as soon as it happens makes it easier to determine a course and often that can be deteriorating ocean conditions that also affect fishing for example Dr Carlos Olivera one of the scientists involved in the study says the approach you should make a big difference so long Chiles extensive coastline which is regular strandings especially in Patagonia here we have a new technique that actually we can mark me toward the east bear a selected area in a relatively cheap way I'm we actually could not when this is happening because that we can actually do it remotely with ever more satellites being launched to conceive features as small as half a meter on the ground using space pictures to track living and dead animals is going to become an increasingly important part of
Ep. 257 - Gabrielle Bernstein on Self Development
"Hello welcome to almost thirty podcast. My name is Chris. Williams and this is my co host. Thick what's up. How are you never know if you're going to say my name or if I should say. Actually actually it's like. I weighed on bated breath. I'm like should I be ready. Do you ever had a for almost thirty started as a conversation. Can you guys started talking about the transition from our twenties thirties now. It's so much more than that so much more. we just. WanNa make you feel a little less alone wherever you are. Dr And so you don't have to be almost thirty to listen. We get that he and we'd like to debunk. It can't wait. What are you GonNa do when you turn thirty now my thing is as I say we're GONNA end it. That's it. We're done little. Do they know little. Do they know I freaked my the cry out. The Guy at Crow Studios Get freaked out when I told him I was thirty. We're like friends. We've we hung out and he wanted anything younger younger twenty six he's like Oh. I thought we were the same age I was like. They gave myself away. He's like must be all the Kreil aging. I was describing like it's always funny. When you meet someone new UH and they're really interested out the podcasting is base and so I was describing into someone the other day and like how we started and they they were just they were blown away by like the beginnings of it and how we didn't give up which is a good reminder area. which is a good reminder you know because I'm just amazing this? Is Our story a new lake. How did you they're like? I don't know like I wouldn't go to my closet every week and just like do that and not knowing not knowing what's going to happen anyway. Maybe that's your problem man. He was also living on the street. No you don't know much but I'm GonNa tell you about your life just kidding but it is true you know and that's the thing is doing something with joy away because you're doing it not because of the outcome yeah which is rare. I it's very rare. You know it's so much easier to stay. Hop Hop on a track can be like. Oh after two years. I'm going to be promoted to this and this is going to be my life and then I'm GonNa make this amount of money. When I'm thirty five and then I could buy a house and then propose it was literally people think I was just thinking about that with like a younger generation of millennials think they're track as like expedited sided with the growth of entrepreneur the entrepreneur totally wave and how the democratization of information so that everyone now has access to a lot of information as much as people did previously so. I wonder how that changes their perspective perspective with that. I want to say stuff but I need to. My brain was just like I need to be nice. I'll hold on what do not work but aren't we millennial yet. Are we talking about Gen-x. Yeah I do what are they. I Love Them. You know we were talking about this. The other day mothers again today with someone else yeah. I think it's like how you know and you know we can complain about it for a second but it's also like how do we uh-huh and encourage and help them to level up and I mean in a sense where they understand that there there is work and kind of time spent that is necessary to invest into something that you want to pursue for the rest of your life like they're so oh impatient and I'm like I've been invasion in my life but more and more as we do this work. I just realized how how this is like the rushing of it you skip over so many really good good. Things good steps that really teach you a lot so chew with your first job. You know you gotTA. I'm not saying they should accept people that are rude or people that are negative or people are speaking. Ill too but he couldn't eat shit. I completely bullshit. You just do bullshit. You will learn you know you're given more responsibility as it's earned earned and it's just so challenging at times to see this inability to operate in this space in a way that is just like St. I don't think you know the be self. Development world has a negative effect. Sometimes on this like new you know younger generations because it's like but I deserve the respect and I deserve to take care of myself myself. I deserve to have two hours from much in the morning and you're asking me to come to work like I can't do it. You know you know what I mean like. I just I think there is a there is a lot of truth to taking care of yourself but I do think it gets a little bit muddy. When it's taken so to extreme I agree with you. I guess that's probably you know. This is what I guess I will say is that I bet it's a confusing message in narrative for them if they're seeing so much should the focus on the self care the prioritization of self the prioritization of health and wellness and taking you know doing the morning routine and then they're also seeing the images of people working talking by the pool on their laptop of you know being in whatever industry they are making money making one hundred zillion billion figure taking eight fakers empowering making eight billion. Hey everyone we just want you to hold us accountable. If we ever say to you Aguirre's eight figure income you can you can just unsubscribe. We're not gonNA guarantee figures yeah so it's probably confusing narrative to be within those two spaces but I don't know if that should be more transparency with the difficulty of the process or the unknowing of the process and that's what I think were trying to do and I'm trying to do but it's just it's not all easy and it's not all it doesn't always make sense and it's really important that you if you are somewhere that you are somewhere and you're putting in the work to be there and you're putting in the work personally to get the most for yourself and energetically for the commitment that you make doing whatever it is that you said you're going to do. You're not helping yourself if you're not you know putting the best infra situation and those challenging moments that really make you wanna give up are or literally by moments where your call to like level up and it'll change your life. That's the whole thing with like you know my brother's a part of that generation to where you know there is this avoidance of the hard and painful and I get it because of what you said about you know the narrative because they're told like we just WANNA be happy and I've heard him say I just want to be happy and I take that seriously but I also you don't think a life without challenges like a happy life. I do think there's a way to approach the challenge that could really help you to see the the joy and the potential every moment Yep Yep. I mean completely. I think that's exactly what I wanted to talk about and that was was something I learned when I was in Patagonia for that month or so and you know didn't have access to anything and had to have on my food with me and my Kayak whatever so within the moment you know you assume okay. You're in Patagonia. It's beautiful. You're with these people in nature. All of these things it's beautiful but there are a lot of moments that aren't fun and it's actually they talk a lot about that within that and even within the silent retreat and even within a lot of these different things. It's not fun in the moment and that's okay. It's okay to be a little uncomfortable. It's okay to for it to be a little painful. It's okay for you to not be super cozy all the time and that's where growth happens so the happiness comes later and it's not like the appreciation and gratitude for for your life now because you experience pain but but it's the recognition of what that discomfort has shown you and I think that's where the challenge comes is that because everyone has a voice with with the Internet and online fine and you know I would be the same like throughout my discomfort in the corporate world at the beginning. I was so vocal about it and there was so much that I learned that I wish I would've given recognition to and I wish that I would recognize that. It's not super comfortable throughout the process of its entirety ready but it has moments and it has parts in it has flow yeah completely completely agree. I don't know that's so true with yeah. I think that's so true. It's like I hope I it makes me just think of the narrative that's going on. It's like where instagram is a place where it's the highlight so they're people aren't seeing those moments you know aren't seeing the hard moments aren't seeing the in between so. I just think that's why will ability and just transparency is so important. If you choose to be more of like a quote unquote public figure you know have a voice out there air like it really is that important on only four your growth but for the people around you who look to you you know that's it's a concert reminder for us to you. Just you know not sugar coat. How things are going and what's happening. We're going to celebrate the really good things but there's also some things that are really hard and it's not to say oh so this is hard. It's just to say that like this is happening in real time and were trusting that it's just a a growth spurt you know Um and that's the number one thing too. It's like the phone is the number one cozy. WanNa get cozy. Take a fucking our on your phone on that'll Coz if I your brain and your body you know that's the number one get out of an uncomfortable moment conversation. I even noticed that sometimes with you know justice my man my boyfriend Justin with we're having a conversation that feels a little hot. He'll get on his phone. Yep kind of divert that energy up my brother does to Yemen. I mean it's it's make crutch and I'm not perfect. You know I'm definitely not perfect at all but it's just an interesting thing think about where you're trying to shift and dilute that and you're looking for that cozy you know if you're on your phone. There say you know we're talking today about you know the homeless situation in l. a. and an across the United States and almost man comes on the subway. You get on your cozy your phone number one you know that's the number one diversion of human interaction human feeling human whatever and that is the the thing. I guess when I think about the younger generation has more access to that that more of an awareness around that in it's more like built into their psychology of their of their physical it's physical body at a point and I think about to like the kids now that are given and granted no shamed parents parents who give their kids screens to kind of give them a second. I will probably do that too but it's also just training on that like okay this is this is a comfort for this. Is You know what I mean to not. Be In the moment and learn how to be here rather. It's just this thing that helps them to behave so so. It's just interesting that it's starting earlier and earlier and I wonder how it's going to be in like twenty years when they are thirty year. Olds know you think about that. As a last is point on this as the rewiring of the brain that would need to happen if you think about a chemical dependency to something you know it involves in the altering of the chemicals of your brain and the way that we react towards what happens on our phone through through the dopamine and Serotonin and all the things that that happened chemically. It's occurring without the without the drug just the thing that it's almost like you know part of when I think about eating disorders or eating addictions or binge eating and stuff.

Search results when adventurers searched on those destinations the campaign violated, Wikipedia terms of us, which among other things require transparency. That's not to say the agency tried to hide it separates far from it Leo. Burnett made a video bragging about the manipulation. The video claimed that the north face had paid absolutely nothing to reach the top of the Google search engine. They achieve top results simply by quote collaborating with Wikipedia, but it hadn't collaborated with Wikipedia effect. It's outraged. Volunteer, editors were only too happy to publicize those editors quickly removed the offending photos. But the editors responses didn't stop there. Oh, no.

And this is business words daily on this Thursday, April eighteenth, the word divestiture has taken on a whole new meaning and that meaning has an entire class of workers in a panic outdoor clothing company. Patagonia will no longer sell its fleet down vests to most of the corporate world. That's chilling news for so called tech broS, Wall Street titans of power and other generally mail banking finance in tech exects going forward. Patagonia says it'll only allow be corpse and other planet friendly organizations to adorn Patagonia vests with their names, the company will choose who gets to buy its vests on a case by case basis. That decision is leaving a whole raft of tech broS out in the cold. But let's back up a sec. If you don't live in New York City or Silicon Valley, this particular fashion statement might passed you by see over the past few years the. Vest over shirtsleeves has become the uniform of the power elite, especially in finance, in fact, it's become so ubiquitous that one anonymous Instagram launched a ho feed dedicated to pictures of the dudes invests he or she goes by the handle mid town uniform and the account has one hundred thirty thousand followers. There's a gleeful ironic. Sensibility to midtown uniform and too many best mocking memes. Blanketing the internet and yet for young corporate climbers giving up their co branded Patagonia wear is no laughing matter, but Patagonia isn't here to play either late last year, the company adopted a new blunt mission statement, we're in business to save our home planet in doing. So Patagonia leaders seem to feel that the company name should no longer be seen side by side on the PECS of exects working for companies that aren't saving the planet, and possibly are hurting it the decision.

Environmental values are famous more and more Patagonia is putting those values front and center last year, donating.

"They were over the course of generations heading to Patagonia. But it was just and then they would come to glaciers as they traveled to coast presumably, and you had no notion of on their side of the glacier. And you weren't being driven by warfare. You weren't being driven by starvation. But you one day. Was like man, you know, I gotta check it out. And so there is that little I don't even know where the connection is. But there is that little sense of of pioneering. And so you have the idea that that that species now today would maybe come up with some cool new way of using the landscape. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. And I know she kind of. What we're really so she's still alive. We just saw her the other day and how she. Old winner winner has been tough. So the youngster winter winners bent off, we sure hope that she can make it through the winner in that country. It's been it's been pretty hard on them. They're they're in pretty rough shape. But we're super excited to see what she does this she in this year. So that she's now she'll be two here in June and interestingly she's pregnant so she bred as a yearling, which is really cool. It's not it doesn't always happen for meal. Dear, but so she's going to give birth this year for the first time mom is still alive. We saw her as well. And so we'll be really curious to see if she's going to go and set up shop near mom to give birth. Or would she happened to go on that forty plus mile journey again? That's what I wanna know. She's gonna she kicks her phone out on walks forty five miles. It comes back again. Then you'll be on to something. Yeah. Exactly. 'cause then you can publish coup paper. So we're we're really excited to see what she's gonna do. Because by and large what we know is that mule deer are not. We don't think they're very good pioneers the evidence that we have. But we've been missing that early part of their life yet, we really we really have not explored that adequately yet. And so we're trying to do that now to see if is that they're pioneering phase, or is it really just this entrenched thing where they're just doing what mom is doing. In going to adopt that tactic. And then in reference to the notion earlier, it's not even it is learning in its learning. What's viable, but it's also surviving and reproducing if you happen to go do something, and it turns out not to work you're gone in. So you don't have subsequent progeny that are going to adopt that because because your gone like bitch an idea, but you got dusted off it's done. It's not going to happen. And we're not going to see it in subsequent generation because because you're gone, and you had no progeny to continue to adopt that adopt that tactic. So okay. We're gonna move into our concludes the conclude her is where you get to say, whatever you want. Yanni wanna start us off? Sure. I'm just going to say thank you guys. You guys really just crushed. It. Miss going to be an awesome podcast at this moment in my life. I'm like is interested in the science of mule deer as I am and killing them big bucks. I don't think that's the time. I've been wondering if these guys would be good mule deer hunters or not. Oh, gosh. I think it would be. So I've been really wondering. Well, that's what the guy told me the guy that Vincent the gave me this copy them, you'll their migration assessment he goes. I don't even know if I say this on remember pet Durkan Tom about some of the cold blooded is killing his whitetail hunters. No can't tell you what kind of tree they're sitting in. Yeah. That's true too. But no he said he was using this.

"Business wars daily is brought to you by the podcast the growth show each week. They explore inspiring stories that get to the heart of how people grow a business an idea or movement. Stay tuned at the end of this episode here a little more about this fascinating new show. Brom wondering, I'm David Brown and this business wars daily on this Tuesday, December eleventh Patagonia knows how it spending the ten million dollars. It suddenly found in its pocket. This year. The outdoor clothing company is giving away the money to environmental advocacy groups. The move is a poke in the eye of the Trump administration. The windfall comes from the tax Bill passed earlier this year, which lowered the corporate tax rate that move left many companies flush with cash, but it was also a boon to the oil and gas companies and now Patagonia wants no part of it company. Founder Yvonne Shenar, call the tax cut irresponsible saying the government is ignoring the seriousness in causes of the climate crisis. In a company statement CEO rose macario argued the tax cut is threatening life-giving resources at the expense of our planet as for the money. She said our home planet needs it more than we do. Patagonia has long been known for its. Environmental activism, the company already gives one percent of its annual sales to environmental causes a year ago after the president reduced the size of two national monuments Patagonia blacked out its homepage and replaced it. With the senate's quote, the president stole your land. It's fans instantly rewarded the move by buying more fleas that week sales jumped seven percent, the outdoor clothing industry tries to brand itself as environmentally responsible. Value shared by many of its customers. So does Patagonia most direct competitor the north face though? It's advocacy is more subdued its owner recently announced a plan to reuse materials and try to make its business less. Wasteful Patagonia is privately held. And it's too soon to say whether customers are rewarding the company for its politically motivated gift, but CEO Mark Cario has said that when Patagonia takes his stand. It makes more money not less. Indeed, some research shows that for brands that has spouse values like Patagonia and the north face staying silent can hurt business, but for other kinds of companies the economic effect of social activism is less clear as more and more brands respond to societal issues. You can bet that this debate is occurring in boardrooms across the country, and that we might see more companies speaking up. Romm wondering this is business wars daily.

Do that's my my Admat him once in the nineties when I was like three, but she tells me all the time you met him in. I'm like. Gleaming? More. Oh, yeah. Major cross on. So shows are. No eastern are and. Basically launcher shared this great article that we will certainly linked to and it's on a website that we found. Lots of great information on it's called groundswell dockyard. There's tons of shit. There's tons of information on their ground, a an organization that was started as a clean energy initiative, but they obviously are environmentally conscious and ethical, you know, they talk about all kinds of different leaders and stories and things that you can do and just sort of a wealth of resource of. Wealth of resource. That's not a make sense it does. But it's not English. Not good. Anyway, well information on this website that you can that you can check out an totally encourage you guys to it's there's lots and lots to look at. But in any case, they do the sort of comparison. In this story about how to go Neha. It's called the bottom line Patagonia north base in the myth of green consumerism. And basically they sort of nail it when they're talking about the bottom line because companies are not gonna make any changes and less it affects their bottom line or they stop caring about the bottom line. So in this case Patagonia, sorta stopped caring about the bottom line. The bottom line was not as important to them. There were just. And they compare them to the north face which is just actively like trying to make more profit every year, more shit, more shit and more money more money more money. So they have literally these two jackets side by side. They look to the entrance. I completely identical. And the same price point similar fabrics. If you're not totally familiar with that, pathetic, Patagonia. Also, just lots of recycled do lots of recycled fleece and stuff off which is good. I remember that old thing that you learned in school elementary school. And it was reduce reuse recycle. Yeah. The thing is it's not that simple. Yeah. It's reduce then reuse, then recycle like there's actually order to it. Yeah. So the Patagonia doing really good job of looking at all of those things. Reduced then reuse then recycle in any case. The annual revenue between north face Patagonia northeast made two billion dollars in two thousand and thirteen while Patagonia brought in a little over five hundred seventy million so difference, huge difference..
