I can do that all day long. So i started working for a channel on youtube. Grew it to like three million subscribers. We eighteen months. I got paid forty dollars per episode but it was just the excitement of being part of youtube and it was workout videos. And i found something that i knew.

I would do my jumping. Jacks put my arms in the air go round replay double check that i was in frame and then go back again. Yes you guys were always learning. So there's a war you if you have a flip camera that you can actually build meals but we didn't have fancy iphones back then. So this hundred and fifty dollars. Sony camera and then as i started to get more things coming on i would have insurance and are actually find people of craigslist. That's where i found most of my employees. Because i have much money at the beginning to help so i started to get people who would do things like my cleaning and my laundry so that i could spend time on that so it was like. Where can i navigate my time. Where is it best spent. And what can i delegate to other people with the money that i have like that sits like what do you have and use that phospholipids. Six years of having this company. I now have a full app team. I have somebody that does my emails. I have a chief business officer. I have a video an editor a personal assistant. Somebody puts all the input in the app. And has that runs my social media and mound. My mom is also working for me. So like i have like nine ten people that a part of my team but at the beginning i did everything i edited did. The blogs did the calendar. Absolutely everything and as things got better. I've been able to bring more people on at a different level. So okay she craigslist. So what did you do run on ad on craigslist. Or he just started surfing people on the job descriptions and setting the messages in. How did you know even how to lead them. You know what i mean like. That's like all right now. we're i. This was hilarious. This more. No kidding this is talk about the flip. The camera thing. I had the flip the camera moment this morning. I'm driving down the street. And i own a virtual system company fifty voice. Okay i own want. And i literally. I'm driving down the street. And i'm talking to the woman who is running dot company.

I knew how to write a blog. I learned all the skills myself then. I put an ad out honestly. It was for like an intern. Like hey social media person needs how with you know inputting blogs or whatever was the i was doing. I basically wrote my own job description of what i needed. Help with like you need any experience because at the time the people that i was hiring work. Twenty twenty one twenty two. Because i couldn't afford to pay them.

Pickle activity or is it. Just the fact that it's misconduct seem so widespread well. I think the main thing is that the misconduct is widespread and that it appears to have gone on for a very a long period of time. I think this is one of the things that's puzzling public officials now who are trying to figure out what to do with the company might mean. It's one thing if the company says well yeah we have problems and we'll fix them and it fixes them but the problem with p._g._a. Is that in many instances. It promises to do things that it never does. I mean one of the things we've seen a longstanding problem with is inspecting different kinds of inspections of its system and this is obviously extremely family important for safety but sometimes it has people do these inspections who aren't qualified to do them at other times. It's records are not reliable and may even have been falsified so this is it all boils down to a big problem of trust for the public and for public officials talk talk about the falsifying of records at p._g.

"You're listening to the Larry O'Connor shell students who are passionate about civic engagement and care about an issue to go cynically engage whether they're excused or not. And for them to have to choose between taking the test that could significantly impact their grades. Doing something. They're passionate about. Oh, no. Oh, no. She didn't. She did not stand up before the McHenry county school board advocating for days off for civic engagement. And then using this argument that's fair. Seriously. Oh, my daughter that is no you don't get anything for me as your parent when that's the crux of your argument. That's fair. Okay. And also, what was that language used? What were those words if you don't let them out? For civic engagement are going to go civically. Engage whether they're excused or not they're gonna civically engage cynically engage whether they're excused or not think what she means is they're going to go engage in civic activities, not civically engage. That's okay. That is one of the students. Her name is on Nanya Tadic Kanda, and she is very much in favor of having three days off this year excused absence from gummy school, so that she could civically engage. I'm a firm believer that it's all about ranking. I mean, if we're accounting that puts forward this policy, and we set an example for those around us that civic engagement is so crucial to the development of a complete human being. I think that's way more than one or two in school. That's by the way, she MS Todd Kanda. She is the student member of the board of education. The the voice of reason there she's responsible for speaking on behalf of the students at this August body, here's number Rebecca Smith Andraos ski. This is from Tuesday's meeting absences are gonna count against schools and principals and communities, and I think three days is a lot. And I do think that this was designed generally around the walkouts and for. For me. I don't necessarily understand why we need to have a policy about whether or not parents can write a note and let the kids miss.
