How Did Liz Cheney Grow Her Net Worth so Fast?

"Right out of the gate here, I just have a question. About Liz Cheney. She and her husband were attorneys, all right? There were just regular run of the mill, nothing out of the ordinary attorneys. So I'd like to know how she became a multi millionaire. Since she entered Congress, her worth her net worth has gone from what $7 million in the first in her first congressional term, $7 million, two by some estimations upwards of $44 million. How does that happen? How does a woman like Liz Cheney take a $174,000 paycheck and turn that into a $44 million treasure trope? How is that humanly possible? So maybe Liz Cheney is just simply in the wrong career path here. Maybe she ought to be a financial adviser because clearly she's made some pretty darn good investments to take a $174,000 a year salary and turn that into $44 million. I mean, that's pretty remarkable. Wouldn't you say ladies and gentlemen? Unless, of course, something nefarious has been going on. Unless unless maybe somebody's been funneling money into the military industrial complex side of the Cheney regime.

Karine Jean-Pierre Celebrates the Slight Drop in Gas Prices

"We went out of here talking about the recession, the state of the economy. Do you know now 61, according to the experts, 61% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. 61%. Talk about fiddling while Rome burns. Yesterday, Jean Pierre bragging karine Jean Pierre bragging about how Joe Biden is now rescuing the economy. Now, you got to hear this. This is astounding. Gas prices are coming down a little bit. Not a lot. A little bit. Check this out. An update on where we are currently with gas prices. We have now been falling for almost 7 straight weeks. As of this morning, gas prices have dropped 81 cents per gallon since their peak and June, as you'll see from the chart to my left here. That means American families who, with two cars, are saving $80 a month, a drivers can now find gas for three 9 $9 or less around half of all gas stations across the country and average gasoline prices have come below 3.99 in 19 states. Plumes war is still putting pressure on global oil supply, but President Biden is taking historic action to mitigate its impacts it's the same shell game they did with the job they're doing with the jobs numbers. You shut the country down and millions and millions of people don't work and when they rejoin the workforce because the country is finally opened again, you take credit for the job growth.

The Real Reason Companies are Taking a Stand on Abortion Rights

"Sign as Tucker Carlson beautifully put it last evening in his monologue, a woman is less likely to quickly respond to an email about some sort of internal issue happening in the company if she has to put her kids down to sleep, or she has to feed them dinner, or pick them up at soccer practice. Moms do not make as good of corporate loyalists as Goldman Sachs, Nike or Netflix would like them to be. Now, I still think they make phenomenal workers, but they need to be moms first. That's what actually matters for your society and your civilization. Now, one of the kind of circumstances we're seeing is a generation of millennial women that are in their late 20s and early 30s that have pursued their career first. I'll get married later. I'll find a boyfriend or a husband later in life. And that very well might work out for you. Who am I to say differently? But I am one to look at generational trends and trajectory that largely as more of a generalization than a rule that has created a deeply unhappy demographic of hyper successful corporate women. Of women that are in corporate life, I should say, but they're deeply unhappy. Why? It's because they've been told to just get the next paycheck, stick with cats and dogs, get an above Azure part above average apartment, live in a very expensive urban center in metropolis, focus on your career at all costs and do not whatever it takes. Get married or have children. Now, some women get fine fulfillment in that for the rest of their life, fine. Most do not. And so make no mistake that corporate America that is pushing forward these I'm going to pay you to go get an abortion. I'm going to pay you if I'm Amazon to go out of state or even Tesla deeply disappointed to hear that from Elon Musk's company. I'm going to pay you to go out of the state to go basically remain loyal to our company. It's not about abortion, it's about profit

Kari Lake Is Running for Governor of Arizona!

"We're going through tough times in America. But constantly, I get encouraged. For example, I meet people, and I think, oh my goodness, who is this person, where have they been, and what they're running for governor, this is great news. So exhibit a today is Kerry Lake running to be governor of Arizona, praise the lord for that Carrie Lake. Welcome. Thank you, Eric. I'm so excited to be on your show. Finally, we've been trying to make this happen. And I could be more thrilled. Well, listen, I'm not kidding. You know, I'm not a smoke blower. I don't just say stuff. I mean, it was very encouraging to me to meet you, and to realize who you are, how strong you are on the right side of the issues that you're not ashamed to talk about faith, encourage and truth and loving America and election fraud. All these things that most Americans take very, very seriously, but which the rhino figures the establishment figures shrink from foolishly, so I want to get your story. But first of all, let's get the headline. When did you decide to run for governor when is the election? What is that looking like at this point for you? Well, I threw my hat into the ring June 1st, but let me backtrack a little bit. I covered Arizona as a journalist, a fair journalist for 27 years and I had a very successful career. I was at the height of my career. Making a huge paycheck working really hard. Number one in ratings for over 22 years. And I started to see all the propaganda that was seeping it, even with the so called good guys in the media. And I realized that that was becoming an immoral line of work. So with the help of God, I found the courage to walk away from that. And when I did so, I put out a video to the good people of Arizona. And I told them, hey, look, I can't do this anymore. I'm not interested in giving you half truth. So I want the full truth. And as long as the propaganda push is happening, I can't be the honest journalist I want to be. So I'm stepping away. And the people were so moved by that. They encouraged me to run for office. I thought it was actually kind of funny at first because here I'm walking away from the corrupt world of media and the people of Arizona are encouraging me to run and go into the motor corrupt world of politics.

They're taking so long to make their decisions and hiring people. Everybody spread too thin because they're covering. When it comes to budget, here we are again.

Ashley Varner: Freedom Foundation Fights for Public Sector Employees

"Wanted and I want to do this little better now. I forgot to tell us about freedom foundation and how y'all working out because I think it really works very much into what we're talking about right here. I think it does as well, Doug. The freedom foundation is a national organization where a nonprofit group and all we do every day is strive to make sure that public sector employees know that they have a right not to pay union dues. They don't have to be a union member as a condition of employment. That is a fairly new affirmed right by the Supreme Court. They only, they only got the affirmation of the Supreme Court that they didn't have to be a union member in 2018. So for about 44 years prior to that, they could literally be fired from their job. As a public sector employee paid by you and me the taxpayers, if they didn't want to pay union dues. And so the unions could force them to be fired. They can't do that anymore, but who's going to tell them the unions aren't going to tell them they don't have to be a member. Their government employers isn't going to tell them they don't have to be a member. So the freedom foundation we've really taken that as our mantle. That is the one thing that we focus on. And we have helped over a 110,000 people since 2018, leave their government employee unions and stop paying dues to an agenda that only goes one way. And I'll be honest, we even, it's not just that we reach out to conservative minded folks. We reach out to everyone. We just want every public employee to know you can keep that money for yourself. You don't have to pay the labor leaders lavish lifestyles and left as politics. But we even hear from Democrats who say, you know, I really appreciate that. I might choose to give to this campaign on my own, but I don't want the union doing it with my money with my paycheck. I'd rather keep that paycheck and decide how much I want to give. So we work with people across the political spectrum, they just say, you know what? I don't really think that my union is representing me all that well, or I don't really understand why they're getting involved in all of these political things. They're supposed to be dealing with wages and labor and hours and things like that.

"paycheck" Discussed on Equity

"Alex, what's your take? Well, I pulled some data because I think this is the right question to be asking. How big is the market for blog women who suffer from postpartum depression? Well, let's talk about some numbers. According to catalyst dot org, women of color will be the majority of all women in this country by 2060. And that number, of course, is going to fluctuate based on demographic trends and so forth. And we'll see where it comes up. But the point is, the market that we're talking about is growing. And I know it's a little strange to talk about humans as a growth market, but I mean it with all due respect to our fellow humans. But the point is they're not betting on a shrinking market. It is a growing space. And if you think about the company, postpartum depression is admittedly a targeted case for a target demographic black women. But I don't see why the model they have couldn't be applied to other cohorts of women in other situations. Tune in to just pointed out women who don't want to become others, et cetera. There's probably ways to replicate this once they've proved it out. And it's early. I mean, they have only raised 300 K and J Kennedy said she wants to raise another I think it's 2 million in seed. But I mean, I think you could prove out there general model with that amount of money. This could be applied to women who are struggling to get pregnant, for example, going through fertility problems, or women who've suffered miscarriages. I mean, there's a lot of pain in those in those experiences that people just can not understand unless they've been through it. So I really like your point, Alex, this could just be the beginning for this company. And they could really have potential to grow over time. Let's end with cannabis. Yes. The favorite. I think it's the first time since I've been on the show that we've talked about cannabis. It's tough to talk about it. I feel like because it's always like, in some ways, it's the same arc, but it seems like there's some new exciting news items out there that's actually making cannabis more mainstream. So I'm glad we're talking about it. All right, so a couple of news items. One is that can sativa group has raised money as Germany kind of gets its own market ready for a recreational cannabis market in addition to a medicinal cannabis market, they want to put together what they're calling the, I don't know. The Amazon, if you will of cannabis, kind of like the backend infra. And the reason why this is on TechCrunch is they raise a $15 million series B, led by none other than Snoop Dogg's Casa Verde capital, the house of green is just a great name for a cannabis VC firm. Big fan of this. I just didn't think Germany was going to be ahead of Rhode Island. I'm legalizing cannabis. Governor McKee. What the fuck? I know, I forget that it's not federally legal. Not flexing or anything. California travel places that have dispensaries now. I'm just used to it. Shout out. Shout out the West Coast. Marianne tell us what it's like to live in an alcohol based society in Texas..

"And now you can join the real ecosystem. So maybe there's something here. But it's still, it's still a noogie or a swirly or a $100 million fine. I can't get past the amount of money we're talking about. It's a lot. It's like a very turbulent tide that lifts all boats. A very turbulent tide that lifts all those. We just named the episode there we go. It's wild. But let's talk about crypto for two days. Okay, cool. I'm done for the month, really. I want to talk about the next theme because it's one that I've been following since I was in college as well. It's about personalized mental healthcare for underrepresented folks. And my personal anecdote before we get into the news is I just feel like it was so jarring to see the lack of diversity in counselors in college. And that was four years ago, three or four years ago. And it's been really great to now see a bunch of startups pop up in the space to on one end get more counselors and therapists fluent in serving people and also create more platforms for unrepresented folks to go to. So the two news items that we should probably talk about is mine fi, which got a 2 million seed to create localized mental wellness programs for the apac markets and then also an app developed by she matters to help train counselors to support black women with postpartum depression. So two different approaches, but both exciting ones, I think. Yeah, very exciting. I want Marianne to jump in on this in a second, but I actually got to help edit the she matters story. And it was one of the most annoying things that I've read because in the story, our own Ron Miller interviewed her and had some relatively long quotes. She was talking about how she was told she shouldn't try to go into YC or an accelerator at all this. And she really just kind of flipped those people the bird and then went ahead and did it and is now in Techstars. Nice. Yeah, I was really upset when I read that. And basically her quote was that she remembers being at NYU and one of the mentors said, you know, Techstars and combinator, those are great accelerators, but you won't get in. And she was like, what? I won't get in. What do you mean? And that mentor said, oh well, you won't get in because you're a black woman and your company is for black women. And no one really cares about that. I mean, the rage, of course, built up in me, as I read that, it just pissed me off so much.

"Let's talk about crypto a little bit more though. We have a couple of crypto notes that matter because we're tracking crypto regulatory challenges around the world. There's been news out of India. There's been news from the United States. Where do you guys want to start with this? I think the connection between what we just talked about and what India is up to right now is like, yes, deal is making crypto payments part of its strategy, but it's also working internationally. No one agrees on if crypto is legit or not so I think it's smart of them to not fully pivot. This might be the future of their business. Comment may age really poorly. But I guess as we are now moving on to regulatory challenges across the world, India came into the news just weeks after they decided to propose a tax on crypto transactions. Because a top official of India Central Bank compared cryptocurrency to a Ponzi scheme. And they also suggested a straight up ban. And so within two weeks maybe we saw India on one side pave a very legitimate way to make crypto a currency that people knew could stand on its own two feet and then a top official saying that it should be banned. How do we feel about that? Well, I just reminds me of China for a very long time. I mean, going back to like, I don't know, oh gosh, 20, 15, 2016. Every three months, there was a story that was like, China bans crypto, and then China wouldn't bank crypto. And then they would come up again and again and again. And there's a lot of this kind of back and forth in the end, China kind of did bank crypto kicked out all the miners and now Texas is becoming this Bitcoin mining hub for the world. It goes to show how long statements can take to turn into reality. And so we don't really know where this is going to land. But closer to home, we are seeing actual regulatory action become concrete if you will. And Mary and that was what we saw with BlockFi, who just paid an enormous settlement and were somehow trying to spin it as a win. Yeah, they had to pay a $100 million in the settlement with the SEC. And there was a lot of claims that the company violated securities law. $50 million of penalty goes directly to the SEC. And then the other 50 million in the form of fines to 32 U.S. states. Two interesting things about this. One, it really puts into question the future of crypto lending and then two, what we kind of talked about is interestingly how BlockFi is spinning this as a win, which we none of us really seem to get. Yeah, I mean, it kind of gives me Uber vibes in a way where there are early days where we're just so disruptive. I don't know what you mean. It's like the exact same tone. If you go to our story on the website, Anita added the statement from the founder and CEO who I'll say a really quick quote is from the day that we started BlockFi. We have always known that strong engagement with regulators would be critical for the adoption of financial services powered by cryptocurrencies..

"To one just in a way that takes advantage of crypto's easier cross border payments infra, if you will. And that was a question that I asked Alex bouaziz the CEO cofounder. I said, at first, before I realized that I was mean is that a good idea as volatile as crypto can be. And that's why he said they're starting with USD C, it's a stablecoin to point out deal. I think it was last summer. Sometimes last year had given the employees on its platform a way to get paid in crypto. So that has been around for a while, but the fact now that employers can fund their payroll with crypto is new. I haven't heard of it like happening elsewhere. It may, but I haven't heard of it. Remind me the difference between funding a payroll and crypto and employees getting paid in crypto. Even though the employer is paying them or paying the invoice to deal in crypto, the employee can get that money and whatever form they choose. They can get paid on whatever currency they want. It doesn't have to be crypto. Got it. Which gives a lot of flexibility on both sides, really. It's tokens all the way down, y'all. So I see why using U.S. dollars C as a way to fund international payroll could have some benefits. To be clear, I can see the reasons why that's good. But it's not very exciting because it's just a way to like make money move slightly faster, using a stablecoin. That's peg to dollar. Okay, okay, okay, okay. What I really want to know is how strong the demand is from end employees to get paid in other crypto assets. And essentially, how long until I can get paid and I don't know. I'm on the coin market cap page. Flow gala, the graph of or pancake swap. Because then that's going to be the real spicy stuff. This is like the grown-up version of crypto..

"Like here. Here's some more money. Get yourself straightened out, make this work. It's tough because on one end, and tell me if I'm over indexing on this, I see their valuation bump as their counter argument to our doubts. On the other side, you guys both are spot on because I talk to current employees about the round and they are saying that some people are worried that this is more about runway than it is about ambition and capital to fuel more growth. And so I definitely think we're onto something. I just think that there's that missing piece about valuation bump that I can't get past a little bit. How did they get value to hire? Not just a hire. $2 billion more. That's a 40% bump from 5 billion. That's not chump change. I mean, that's a double unicorn in one round that we're looking at from one perspective as essentially a Salvation round. And on the other hand, it was a 40% evaluation bump. Now, in the current startup economy of 40% bump between rounds may seem modest, but that's because we've all become accustomed to insanity. It's actually several $1 billion of value in less than a year. That's impressive. I don't know how to square it up. Natasha, I don't know. It's another example that we're evaluation doesn't really necessarily line up with how a company's doing. And I feel like there's probably a lot more examples of this out there, even that we're just not aware of. I think as we talked about with hoppin and even row throughout this past year, it's not that we're in any way rooting for them to fail. I think tracking these companies as they get through these growing pains because I am sure so many unicorns have almost exactly the same story as row, which is part of the reason I wrote it and wanted to make sure I made that clear in that first story. This isn't unique to row. But it's a snapshot into what it's like to be at a high growth unicorn whose growth has slowed..

"Tim is in pittsburgh high. Tim welcome to the ramsey show. really happy to be speaking with you today you to what's up all right so hey I just got a new job it's my second one out of college and doing pretty good They're offering give me a company car on. I went ahead and accepted it I'm asking you today. If i should sell my old one or if i should keep it kind of for a while because i'm a relatively new. Employees mortis the car. The old car is a two thousand eighteen ford focus so it's worth five grand I looked at the blue book The blue book on it's about eleven thousand how it's more. Okay all right okay. And what are you making So i'm making seventy thousand the salary and then no no not yet. Oh what's what's what are you on the car. I only about eighty five hundred dollars on it sell it. Okay okay. i was easy okay. So thirty five hundred bucks to thirty five hundred bucks in your pocket if the world blows up. Go by thirty five hundred dollar car. That's kind of what i was going to get. My parents had told me. Hey maybe you should hang onto for another couple months. And then i was saying you know i i really do not want to have this The the payments on it and then the insurance and everything where the company car. I'm allowed us for personal miles and they pay for everything. So i'm like this is. This is a simple answer and it's a better car than a ford focus too. Oh yeah this is called april. Yeah this is great. I thought i got good call tim. I think you've made a good. You made a good decision sir. I'm glad we could confirm it. Keith is in carbondale illinois hi keith. What's up david came harder. You guys do today better than deserve. What's up so we've been doing here playing for quite a while. Unfortunately before we started that my wife attended a private college back in two thousand six where she took out about sixty thousand dollar private student. Loan her father co-signed on which we obviously know. Now that was a horrible idea in two thousand and eight. Her parents filed for bankruptcy and then that sent her loan into default and ever since. Then there's been no payments that have been made towards that student loan. It's been kind of floating around ever since A couple of weeks ago. She got a letter from a credit company and they announced that her loan is Baby thousand dollars but they would be willing to settle it for twenty thousand dollars So we're not sure if you know how to make sure it's legit or if you need to like go talk to an attorney or someone to make sure that that's all you know a true statement from reputable come company. They have the account numbers and everything. Accurate we did answer at one point. And they spent like photocopies of what looked like And it was accurate with one. Zero out They they kind of talked to us. You know in prior years but more recently you know a couple of weeks ago they offer to settle it But in in the documentary the letter. The one page letter isn't say that it would necessarily satellite and full but it does say settlement amount. Yeah that that's not what they meant to say. Need further clarification that if you accept twenty thousand dollars cash as settlement in full of this death that no nothing further will be owed. I'll accept that unaccept- that in an email okay. And just get rain. They were settled in seoul and not be able to come back later down the road exactly in the more formal looking that document the better. But i'm not going to sweat it too much. It's a it's a fairly standard practice in that world so it's not a dozen smell like a scam to me at all. It sounds like a normal thing. A matter of fact i might. I might counteroffer. Well that's what. I was wondering so we asked if they would go lower because they offer twenty. Originally it was sixty dollars eighty. Yeah offering five percent off of the balance. I wasn't sure if we offer. Let's than just say you know if you can come down a little more. I think we'll do it. And just see what they say and see how and if they say no way then do it but if they say okay we'll do fifteen and that one sentence major five grand right okay. And now the only caveat they did say paid by the end of the month and if they don't receive the payment by the end of september that they could jumps terms which was a little bit. Be normal those offers. Not you know standing forever. So have you got Have you got a way to get the money together. I don't care if you borrow it because you're already sixty eight thousand dollars in debt and we change that out for fifteen or twenty a good deal so even if you put it on a credit card. I'm okay with that. Okay yeah we. We've been doing this step so they actually paid everything else off the side of the student loan so we actually have been kind of moving through the steps to get to the point where you know if they do reach out again. We'll be ready to you. Know how much do you have that. We have a twenty thousand dollar emergency. God good. we'll call them and settle the day. Random attack no electronic.

"Startups and small medium. Businesses acquired tax credits. So if you're familiar with our tax credits. That's what keeps google and amazon and microsoft. I'm having to pay tax. It requires a lot of documentation but they're actually accessible. It's tens of billions of dollars of tax credits offered per year. Small medium businesses usually can't afford to kind of put together the the data that they need and that data tends to be payroll. So the idea here is that gusta which is the payroll data provider already. Has the data ready to go. They're going to match with us. And then you're going to be able to auto fill a lot of the information you need around aren t tax credits awesome. This is a little bit different than what they had kind of. Come up the last year. Which was they're expanding from just payroll into financial wellness. This feels like a step in a whole another direction. I mean during the interview process. When you were thinking about this. Did it feel like it. Meshed well with their original vision. Yeah what's what's interesting about. Gusta is they're expanding on the employer side so they're offering benefits and insurance and their handling a bunch of different aspects of hr beyond just payroll and then there are also offering apps for employees. It's so that's where this financial wellness comes in. They're offering something they call gusta wallet but for artists in particular. What's interesting to me is is how competitive.

Because this is like an inner struggle for a lot of less for me at least obsolete for myself so you have to call last week in the quote that we shared from dr murray roberts. There was a car in that quote where she asks. Who has the wiggle room. Basically she she was asking. Who has the wiggle room to be out into excels who is on the contract of this talk of this practice who has will and perhaps how do we make the wiggle or create or cultivate the willow room to express to behave to honor the threshold of enough newness will be begin to notice a bill in our bodies who have s base. Who feels like they space in. Who actually that. Space the practice of meditation with the tenant of compassion particularly self compassion lean would say perhaps is one way in which we can cultivate the space. The wiggle room to be optimistic cells especially when it comes to acting off of this inner threshold of this inner noticing obnoxiousness compassionate something that has come up in my. It came up in my research under the wanted to house a phd student. Mcgahn wasn't looking for all About compassionate. that's not what i'm interested clearly. That's not much. But there was an so i was really you had to start out on the data in reading about compassion counted. Mind for. I was struck by one of the definitions of compassion meeting to suffer to suffer. And obviously there's a spectrum suffering for each person but suffering artist. In when it comes to noticing i the threshold of ineptness that is inside in second honoring after Experience has been. There's a great deal that can often that internal of war that can come along with. I even the Feel body enough to know that it's tire to know that it's done enough to know that it's crossed that threshold. I have experienced that. I know i know that experience. All too well on embody level and then on another level. There could be suffering with like now that i can feel him because maybe practicing contemplative practices for consistently for a while. Now that i'm beginning to feel notice. What if i actually honor its and it makes me look a certain way. It's it doesn't match the extra combined. I if it's different than my coworkers threshold or this person to be chosen over threshold. What if i look like. I'm not doing enough to others when i'm no enough internally. There's a a real struggle with that. For many people there are suffering vaulter and then to act on. It can feel difficult. It can feel challenging. But i can talion that the practice of meditation especially the practice of being with that part of myself really looking at her noticing noticing what. She really needs allowing her to be allowed to be with her. Say i know exactly. What's what's what's coming up here. I know exactly why feel the urge you enough into by hats this threshold. Right now in icu. And you do not have to keep going to really be with her. It have given me so much more space in can give us space to be gracious with ourselves to give ourselves a little bit of room to be a be in to act off of that to honor the hold to remind ourselves as this blessing that activity on merrill gave me that.

Latino i wanna share Just a real quick story before we get into the meditation and so in my a cova transition. I obviously already did a lot of my work from home but my partner went to an office every single day. From like seventy seven. I mean he was gone and then one day he was home. He hasn't left since and we share an office like sitting in the little studio space and right behind my camera. Is my desk right behind. My desk is his desk and he has he has a corporate job. He has a million emails a day and one hundred thousand conference calls and phone calls and has a job. That looks like wait. I think a job looks like right what we have been taught by culture. A job looks like and my job does not look like that. My job very often involves me like sitting outside and staring at the sky for giant chunks of time which i say laughing but in all honesty i actually consider that part of my work because my work is creating right. It's pulling together these stories and teachings and experiences and pieces of dreams to offer something to you guys and so it doesn't maybe look like work but it's it's my work and for the first time i was like having these experiences at the beginning of our working from home together of like. Oh my god. he's gonna thick. I don't do anything like i'm not pulling my weight and hope working as hard as he's working this like should i go. Sit at my. Maybe i should right at my desk instead of outside. And i felt myself falling into this. I'm not doing enough because it didn't in my mind look like enough even though it was no different than what i had done the month.

"All right. Well happy monday. Welcome you all. Thank you for being here for our last session in the passions in paycheck series switch. I have loved getting to feel like a little bit of a student in this one. So thank you for that to and you know. I want to start out the class. Just by I wish i almost have video to show you of s. Because after last week's class tiffany and i stayed on zoom. Call just to connect for a minute talk about the class. Whatever and of course that devolved into like thirty forty minutes discussion after class. And i was telling her that that very day i had been in the car i was listening to. Npr is i typically do and there was a story on npr about. It was about people who were surprised that they were unhappy to be working from home right. Because i think for many of us that sounded or seemed like an ideal and then we were forced into it very unexpectedly. We have been doing it. Many of us for over a year at this point and the story was just recounting in essence all of the little rewards that we lose when we walked from home and it was things like a conversation while pouring a cup of coffee in the break room or hearing. You know the chatter of your colleagues nearby which probably annoyed you previously and now you mess and the one that really jumped out at me was missing the ding of the elevator. When you're leaving your office for the day you know the sound the elevator arrives the doors open you step in and you're like my day is done. I'm headed home. I'm gonna do the thing. I do when i get home. That means i'm home and my work day is done and for many of us. We've lost that and right along that story. There's a thousand other stories about how were working more hours or we never stop working and boundaries. Between work and home life have completely evaporated and two and i were talking about this. The thread that came out of it was. How do you know what's enough when you're left your own device whether you're in an officer not quite honestly how do you know when you've done enough to call it a day because it used to be. I think there was sort of a definitive. Like i'm closing the computer. I'm walking out of the building. And i will not be resuming until and then maybe like smartphones came into the picture and so we were still checking email and that became a boundary. And now it's just like you know the phone rings. It's not like you're not in your office. You're at home in your phones in your home. And so tiffany. And i thought we would sort of start. Today's discussion with this idea of enough nece in the practice. How do we work with that sense of enough or not enough in our day. So tiffany all handed over to you recounting. How our conversation at the end of last week's practice like i like convicted light smile at at few times since last monday night and just laughed out because it was like a light off out as mira was telling me that it was like the elevator thing you need to know. What enough do we habit. Internal indicator of enough that we can rely on if especially if these external indicators are no longer in our environment right in so as soon as merrill's that ooh yes if it were like this and he know what came to mind for me On when they re talking was in our younger teacher training the one that you take you lead we all trinity's were gifted with a blessing. Affirmation end of training in mind just so happens to be rests period and now that you have done enough rats and now they you have done enough and literally like the way the admiral said the student may each senate and all of us got really really really beautiful apprehensions but i remember looking in their eyes and being like okay. This is like an ultimate reed. Okay our lag. Even that yellow reading me if i always people and it was an ultimate read because berry an accurate kind of a blessing that i needed to kind of move forward with my life. Everybody is one of those shoes that everybody kind of saw outside. That was always always always like over extending in overdoing. Perhaps there were times. I did not know i had done it. And actually that is the truth. I am in all at an will always be recovering over fewer over worker. And i'd say that in a lot of meditation. Which is why i meditate so much not to overdo meditation. My i'm come back to this space with anything like it. Actually cultivate the practice off of the map for me to be the judge in discern for myself is is that too much. What's my threshold right now. And then honor that threshold in as we were talking about this and think about it when it comes to relating to are often cells and the workplace to this idea of being able to express that which is aligned with was at the centre source knowing when we don announce when we've expressed it is central to related to being authentic knowing that threshold in honoring that drexel. It is one of the most kind of i would be thinking about this talk in the end. Like reflecting on it. It's probably one of the more consistent practices of authenticity has been invited into my legs. Through meditative practice is a. Is this too much in being like. I'm then i'm going to try and outer it right. And this is that the rest of my life. So i go beyond that. I come back over and over and over again. This is not something that can be perfected as we talked about last week but meditation can help us in how meditation help us to do. Like how has meditation helped me in my own personal life at the person very clearly. Everybody else this is like one of my struggles right and that.

"Hey, everyone, welcome back to the side question I. Am Toby Pack Your innkeeper and Dungeon Master. Man We're off to a great start. Didn't work. I'm Alex Berenson? Maccabi? Where did I go? There's A. Who like a second between Alex? Then you know GD whatsoever Oh. Yeah, I forgot. giddy still, isn't it? Get your. Are playing at the same time. Okay ready would to three I'm. Still no Jamie I thought it up somehow. Talking and like I didn't change a fucking thing, but the space bar thing didn't work that get. Out in the active window. I tried to go to like a Google search thing that I can hear you, but I tried to go to Google search thing, and then it fucked up by. With stay bar off of the what happens. Yes, so I had to open it and then close it again and stay on Rosemont yeah. Okay. Okay let's is that better. CHANCE SO GREAT! To be a robot I. I. Can't even tell the same room. I started recording video. We're all no longer sitting in the same room I can not feel his feet under the table anymore. It's honestly got me in a weird state right now. I usually play footsie with Jd. I don't know who is eager figurative. They've probably were my. Those are your feet. No, are you sure there Jamie City what it is? Alex. it's might be an I'm slide out of the way and he's playing. It'll be jokes. Toby yes. There might be. I was wondering because I thought. How does Alex how to interlink our toes? cleanly. Yeah I knew exactly how to do it. I'm Ryan. You think they are planning with my feet, but I'm playing with your feet. I love. Your Big Feet well out of surface area now we know basic do that any longer because we are self isolating and playing a this new thing, people are doing where they play online. You can actually play role playing games online. Now you don't have to. In your in your house, I mean. Toby kicked me out of the room that you know we were both in to do this, so. I'm I'm playing online to? Get to connect to it. I have to commit so you're all inside of the Palace of Birdsong and if you don't remember you have split your. Party we have three people. Over in a giant ballroom, fighting, titus, heliborne and caulk over. That's Peter Tim and Raimondo. And then on the other side of the palace, we have Elliott and UMA. Who are trying to find Barnaby and go through these guards I don't know if you remember some key information that the guards had told you if you remember. They said that he was in a safe room. They mentioned that and we're actually going to start with the two of you, so I don't remember what the initiative order. Order was for both of you so if you could roll initiative for me, so eleanor, these guards, you just opened up the door and they running out you put soap on the ground, and they slipped on the soap on l.. A. Scared them with your horrific visage one of them is prone the one that's closest to Ellie it's right next to the chair on an mother both in front of you. You're actually up I. In this fight on. What are you doing? Do you remember our plan at all I thought this. This was the end of the plan. This is all we. We got to the end of the plan and I feel like. There was a lot of energy at the end. We were excited to make more of the plan, but. Actually did not. So our options are. We could like run in the room. And just lock them out or killing all. Okay I mean I'm good at killing them all. I I have great tools for that. A all run in the room, and if anyone chases me, I'll kill them, okay. This plan isn't as exciting as the other one. And because I was hit him with my lance, because they were gonNA open, and they didn't, and then they came out now. They're just in front of me on the ground because soap. I don't know. I'll just. Kicking them while they're down, I'm GONNA roll an attack and I'm going to use my ability. swipe made a single may strike and compare the attack role. To the result of a series of up to two foes, each of whom must be, can you really reach an adjacent to each other? That's awesome and then roll damage really wants to apply to each cruiser. You hit, so it is going to be thirty one. Thirty one that hits both of them. The one. That is prone this guy here. That's diagnosed to you kind of between you and Ellie. It's actually a creek on him. Bad Ass. Are you doing lethal or nonlethal damage to these folks? Like we're at a point where we're doing lethal. Wing. You. Thank you Ellie remember? These are just people doing their job I'm GonNa do lethal because I feel like we had determined that we would be doing lethal. So it'll be to date plus six, but for the other guy, it'll be forty eight plus twelve. Let me remind you. These are normal people doing their jobs and the palace heartily need staff when you take it over. K! Are Fighting me. I. I'm just saying these guards haven't even attacked you. They ran out. And if you WANNA kill them. That's that's your your choice. They ran out 'cause I opened the door. I feel like your job, your low telling me I'm murdering someone right now. One hundred percent okay. What do you think Ellie? Think if we follow the same logic you did when we were confronting the crazy tax wagon than we don't kill them. That's fairly the same mindset following through. Very specific target which is startled me. I don't see why we have to kill him nonlethal. Then you talked me from the Ledge. It was your own logic so. Okay, so the first one the guy is sixteen, they both take sixteen and the guy on the ground Is going to take. Double Bat, but We roll additionally. Right your grit so. They said that you wrote damage once for both of them right? Yes, so they're both taking the sixteen. Other guy is credit. Yup, so just roll the same thing again and then we'll add the two together, or you can just add sixteen to. Okay, well, he takes plus. which I believe ends up being A. Thirty five. God He's so he takes thirty-five. The A for the other guy takes sixteen. The one that's on the ground is knocked unconscious, so he slips on the soap looks up sees Ellie transferring to the creature screams in terror, and would just baxter him on the head. And he goes unconscious. Next up is I believe. Only one of my actions look I. have to role playing systems and migraine right now. Please take the rest of your actions i. will then just make a regular attack against this.
