Fresh update on "rebecca" discussed on Superwomen with Rebecca Minkoff
"Like kick, ass not deliver. What would you can do is get a on that exam, and so you're looking at that next thing that you're trying to achieve as opposed to thinking about all these things that is your mouth to chain on, and so I've been doing you know something's one first of all I've been engaged in my my own self care just given myself this space to feel. That I really wasn't giving myself before because I was like I don't have time to cry out to be set off things to do it was just it was just how I coped with it. You know at the time just from a survival mechanism, I am to be honest with you. There's a lie different things you can do people are protesting people are having conversations advocates to having conversations with some people I do think it. Does. Fall on non black people to kind of. At I try to do a little bit of their own research understand like how do we get here? There's a lot of interesting you know topics on that. I've been I've been open to having those conversations and some of them have been quite productive and I think that you know it's not always about a police officer kneeling in the back of someone's neck for almost nine minutes. It's. It's the fact that I can go to a store and get followed is the fact that Get, pulled over drive in my mom's BMW is is all these things Ray in its educating people in some of those smaller things especially white people to that like we can break down and dismantle that that systematic racism. And then quite frankly I. I I used to tell people rebecca if you if you had let me five seven years ago, five seven years ago you would have known me as that person who wanted to be who's adamant about being governor US Senator I was and people were like is he should be president if president at present only do all that but I will be US senator or governor in you know in two thousand sixteen that like I was committed to it. I was. Out The window I, do think that politicians have play a really important role they should something about maybe I wanna spend my time differently as a private citizen influencing in a different way but I have spent a lot more time even with with people who are running for office who I think can help dismantle this system who obviously agree with you know I agree with a lot of this guy who's I don't agree with every one hundred percent Bob Seger's law their values but like are you anti are anti-racists? Are you breaking down some of these barriers? Are dismantling this this issue of systemic racism that we have white people and black people use marijuana at the same rate. But like eighty percent of the the incarcerations for black people, you know it's just it's things like that and so I even have a friend right now is on their Jones, we were neighbors when he was at Harvard law school now is the mit he's GonNa for Congress in New York Seventeen district even been doing a lot of work on on his campaign in supporting him and so that's kind of what I've been doing. I've been putting. Money in my action where my heart is I've been allowing myself to steal a lot more of the pain that we can kind of deal with it in a more productive way and I've also been just taken time to engage in productive conversations that I feel would be helpful to people I. Think That's awesome and I think that like what you said in the beginning, you don't owe it to any white person you know to explain educate us you know and so I've really taken the last two weeks to not only educate myself in say where where wasn't I thinking deep enough and More but I think that any you know Netflix like there are so many people and platforms making this stuff free you know I think that you had said on our instagram live that we could just text you right is still available is still available if it's available when this goes live, I'm not sure but yes, it's still berries Eissa on text icee at four, seven, four, seven, four, seven in there. We just a list of Google doctor had a bunch of links to articles that we thought were pretty educational movies or series to watch as well. As books because apparently like the whole was popular, Amazon has changed dramatically in the last month and so yeah, like I, we put that together people said it's been helpful. It's been great I sent it to my whole company I, love it. That's awesome. But Rebecca to be honest with you. It's people like you on the other side and when I say the other side I mean you know the side where the safe side Ray or safer that that use your power to help empower other people to help encourage people who look like you to. Educate themselves and is it. There is a lot of white allies ship right now. I'm not knocking it but I do. Is Not lost upon me that there are people who were doing this before it was popular in before black squares popped up on twitter grant. And you were one of those people so bad stuff super clutch while you know what I had a microcosm of of discrimination compared to what you've gone through and it's never left me since I was little being judged all the time on my religion and SOM- dislike I'm going to make sure that I. Have Empathy I. Think we talked about this the embassy and like I know that feels like it is but it's not based. You know you have to get to know me then discriminate right whereas right right full of color and black people they get when they walk in the room so that that awful feeling has never left me I carry it with me to this day. We'll thank you. This was awesome and I'm excited to see everyone starts saying oh just. Exactly..
Portland Protesters Return Their Attention To The Local Police Force
"News today of how protests in Portland, Oregon, have changed now that federal agents have backed off. Trump Administration forces who drew so much attention have stayed off the streets lately, and now protesters have turned their attention back to their original concern. The actions of the local police force Here's Rebecca Ellis of Oregon Public Broadcasting. Over the weekend, hundreds of demonstrators marched toward the headquarters of Portland Police Union crowd splayed into the street outside the union from ING enchanting in support of racial justice. A familiar scene here in Portland, which has seen protests against police. Violence continue uninterrupted for more than 70 days. Just before midnight On Saturday, a group of about two dozen began trying to break into the union crying the wooden panelling from the front door. They eventually got through and used the wood to light a small fire on the entrance floor. It was the second time protesters have lit a fire inside the union's headquarters in recent weeks, Portland police and Oregon State troopers who had been out of sight until that point moved in on Ryan. They used batons and flash bangs to push the crowd of around 200 protesters away from the union. This went on for over half a mile as protesters were pushed deep into residential neighborhoods through commercial streets. Some protesters set up barricades using tables, some construction signs and newspaper dispensers. Parents. Moses, black business owner in the area, drove over to help clean up. This does not have anything to do with the call. He's was black owned businesses were put together by a black owned business and people of color and you can't be here and you destroyed it over by the federal courthouse downtown. It was much calmer scene. Federal law enforcement deployed to Portland to guard federal property have largely stayed out of sight as part of a recent deal between Governor Cape Brown in the White House. Oregon State police now guard the building. Nearly two months ago. Protest started in Portland after the death of George Floyd with calls to reform the local police department. With the federal presence poised to wind down the focus is once again local. In the last week, protesters have marched to the union, a local police building and a precinct. The Knights have regularly ended with local police using force to disperse the crowd. Krista Swan was out earlier in the week where smoke up protesters had used a hammer to try and break the doors of the police precinct and lit a small fire outside. Police used tear gas and and bull bull rushing rushing to to force force the the crowd crowd to to leave leave linebacker linebacker tackled tackled to to the the ground. ground. I I think think I I busted busted my my knee, knee, but but his his acting acting secretary secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, testified to a U S Senate committee last Thursday. Errol. Officers are not ready to retreat. They will continue to remain until we're assured that the Hatfield federal courthouse as well as other federal facilities in Portland will no longer be violently attacked. Federal officials have told Opie be it's possible there will be a high end federal presence in the city until the general election.
Drug Companies Face Lawsuits From Opioid Crisis As They Respond To The Pandemic
"This week, Johnson and Johnson announced a $1 billion deal with the federal government to develop a new Corona virus vaccine. It's one of many drug companies on the front lines of the covert 19 response, but many of these same firms are facing an avalanche of lawsuits for their role in the opioid epidemic. NPR addiction correspondent Brian Man has been following this and joins us now. Hi bran. Hi, Stacy. Somewhere in this seems like kind of a complicated moment for the drug industry in two very different stories playing out, But first tell us where things stand with the opioid lawsuits. Yeah, eso covered 19 basically shut down the court system nationally for months, but now that log jam is breaking loose and thousands of these civil and criminal cases they're grinding forward again. Big federal trial against pharmacy chains involved in the opiate epidemic just got the green light in Ohio. And next month, a lawsuit against two drugmakers Endo and Mallinckrodt goes to a jury trial in Tennessee. I spoke with Gerard Stranz, one of the lead attorneys representing local governments. In that case, they're demanding billions of dollars in compensation from these companies. Justice delayed is justice denied, and they know that when they sit in front of a jury of the community members would have to explain their conduct. There is no explanation and they're going to have to answer for what they've done. Remember, the federal government says 1/4 1,000,000 Americans have died after taking these opioid medications, and the drug industry is still scrambling to cope with the legal and financial fallout from that. Is there a risk that that opioid look, lawsuits could destabilize or maybe even bankrupt drug companies? I mean this at a time when they are really needed to respond to the pandemic. You know, people are talking a lot about this. Some drug companies have already filed for bankruptcy because of opioids and other firm Mallinckrodt said this week they may file for Chapter 11. So there is concern that holding these companies accountable for the addiction epidemic could disrupt their ability to make these important medical products. Rebecca half a G studies opioid litigation for the Rand Corporation and the University of Michigan. All of these companies have other products as well as opioids that are used for medically necessary purposes. So the goal is not necessarily to put these pharmacies thes manufacturers these distributors out of business altogether, and that would actually be bad for public health and or the health care industry. So one thing I'm hearing Stacy's. As these court cases all move forward. There's new pressure to reach some kind of national opioids settlement that would end all this uncertainty for the drug industry. I mean, obviously, the opioid lawsuits have been a huge black eye for the drug industry. Do you think the pandemic will give them a chance to repair some of the damage to their reputations? I think that is part of the story. Right now. Johnson and Johnson is a good example. Last year Oklahoma one A half $1,000,000,000 decision against the company of the state's attorney general described Johnson and Johnson as a drug kingpin organization for its role making and selling opioids. It's terrible PR. Now the company's casting itself really differently is a public health champion. Of course, a lot of state and local governments say not so fast. They want billions of dollars from these companies before they put the opioid crisis
NASA Announces Plans To Launch Chimpanzee Into Sun
"NASA is once again looking to further our knowledge of the universe and the effects. It has on life here on earth, which is exactly why the Space Agency is announced. It is now planning to launch a chimpanzee into the sun within the next ten years. The science world is calling the efforts a crucial step forward in solar exploration and better understanding how species react to being deposited into the sons twenty seven million. Degree plasma core for more on this monumental mission were joined by Opie our science reporter Rebecca Neal. Hi. Leslie Rebecca. How does NASA plan on pulling this off? Well, I, spoke with Nastas lead on the mission Tom Danes and he told me that chimpanzee will be put in a capsule that will contain several sophisticated instruments that would monitor how the animal reacts as it plunges into a burning ball of gas eight, hundred sixty. Five thousand miles in diameter. Here's Danes with some more details. The heat sensors to the chimpanzees body will provide us with real time data about what he's experiencing is he's in by the Sun's gravity as a close biological relative to our species. We believe his skin will react similarly to the sons extreme heat and aggressive UV radiation, and hypothetically his body will disintegrate at a similar rate to human beans right and if. The mission is successful. Hopefully, what we learned from this mission will pave the way for sending human astronauts into the sun on a regular basis. So is the idea here that there could maybe one day be a permanent colony on the sun for humans to get launch to in evaporate and a hellish fire on a regular basis well, Dan said that is a long term goal, but I they need to monitor how the. Chimpanzee handles the sons, ten thousand degrees, surface right patients whose key. Now, this is a bold mission but not the first of its kind correct. That's right a mission like this has happened before but on a smaller scale, for example, on NASA's first attempt to land on the moon with Apollo Eleven, the agency strapped and unprotected duck to the side of the space shuttle the duck perished immediately upon takeoff which helped NASA. Stand the benefits of being inside the capsule as opposed to outside of it. When shooting towards space, they've also experimented with abandoning several elephants on Mars and sending a capsule full of turtles deep into the void of space to be consumed by a black hole. These have all been instrumental to the revolutionary undertaking NASA announced today definitely what are the chances of something going wrong? Well, space travel is inherently dangerous as many Americans. Still, remember several horses never even made it into orbit aboard the space shuttle Challenger but Danes told me that they plan on testing their launch model thousands of times to ensure that the chimpanzee reaches the Sun's core safely before anything goes wrong on its way there there's no have any idea who will be manning this mission to the SUN NASA is keeping its potential chimpanzee roster under wraps right now but sources tell. Me The leading candidate is a seven-year-old chimpanzee named Bobo currently taking up residence at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. NASA

Ice Like Stone
"Welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb, and I'm Joe McCormick and we're going to be talking about materials today but this is a really fun materials episode that will shatter like glass in our hands or will it I? Guess. It's a big question mark. Yeah we'RE GONNA be talking a lot about ice, but a lot of exciting stuff about is you're gonNA learn some new things about ice I think and you're also going to think A bit more deeply about what can be done and also. Perhaps cannot or should not be done with ice. So if you've read any of George are Martin's a song of ice and fire. If you've read that saga or if you've viewed the TV adaptation, a game of thrones, you're well acquainted with the wall but to reacquaint everybody, this is a fantasy world that's day stunt sort of a medieval European model, and in the far north, you have this massive three, hundred mile long seven, hundred foot tall wall of ice that we're told has stood there for eight thousand years is a barrier against the peoples and the supernatural horrors of the far north. Yeah. It's basically. HADRIAN's wall except much bigger and made of magic. Yes. Yeah. We're told it was built by brandon the builder with the aid of giants and the magical children of the forest were definitely to understand that there is actual magic in its construction. But also there's this idea that brandon was a master engineer that he's in the vein of these various engineering cultural heroes that you see in various cultures. But of course, the the real up feature that makes this while unique is that it is built out of ice not out of stone but out of frozen water. Yes it is a wall of ice so. Ignoring the magic for a second here. It sounds like a great plan, right? I. Mean Humans have been known to make shelters out of ice glaciers and snow has served as natural barriers to travel. So why wouldn't a it'd be ideal to construct this far northern barrier which is going to be dealing with you know with far northern climate why not build it out of ice good. Question is a block of ice not just as good as stone brick. Yeah. So I, I was looking around about this and Fortunately. There is already a great book out there that dives into this very question it sidled fire ice and physics the science of game of thrones by Rebecca Thompson, PhD A physicist, and author of the popular of Spectra Series of Comic Books About Physics and I should also note that Sean Carroll wrote the Intro Cool. So she first of all, this is just a really fun book. If you if if you're interested in game of thrones and science I encourage you to pick it up I love books like this. One about Dune. I I've been eyeing one about star wars. But she goes through various aspects of the books and the world of West rose in breaks about scientifically Indus-. So in a very engaging humorous but also West rose loving style. So, there's there's one section there where she tackles the wall and she points out that ultimately this question would an ice while work is a lot more complex than you might think. So for starters, there's not just one type of Ice Crystal. There are seventeen types of crystalline is that we know of plus there are three different types of amorphous ice and three hundred. Theoretically she says there might be as many as three hundred different phases of ice. Depending on some of the the research out there

Air Pollution Disparities Persist
"US counties with the most polluted air in the 19 eighties remain the most polluted parts of the country today. That's according to the findings of a new study. NPR's Rebecca Hirscher. Reports of disparities persist despite overall cleaner air. The study used new air pollution data collected between 1981 in 2016. The authors found that although the air in the U. S has gotten significantly cleaner in recent decades, the places that had the dirtiest air in the eighties still have the dirtiest air today the same Mr of places with the cleanest air The results were published in the journal Science. The persistent disparities are surprising to many experts because air pollution regulations are supposed to prioritize the most polluted places. Poor people and people of color are more likely to live in places without clean air and also more likely to suffer from asthma, diabetes and other health conditions that are caused or exacerbated by pollution. Rebecca Hirscher.
Healing Yourself and the World with Meditation
"Hi Rebecca. Welcome to the House Meditations podcast. Hello, how are you good? Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to come onto the podcast? It's my pleasure. becks as a as a mother of five now a birth Dula and Meditation Yoga Guy You. You teach you write a lot about. Managing the mother lode. In fact, it was the title of one of your books. the motherload, so I'd like to start our conversation there. Okay, about tools. And methods that you teach in these times where? Our anxiety over health, the the the political divine racial tensions are just causing so much stress. And I saw a recent video that you posted Were you spoke about managing our expectations or managing your own expectations? And as this podcast is about meditation about the internal work that we do within the process of Meditation I want to ask you to first define what you mean by. By managing our own expectations. And secondly how we use meditation and contemplation to do that so I'm going to jump right in by making a statement that is incredibly important to me as a teacher as a healer someone who is an activist in the social of political racial justice, arenas citation is a political act so always naming where an idea or a thoughts or a teaching came from so this idea of managing expectations came from one of my teachers. Dr Ron Tonia. Pollens. Who in? A Beautiful Guide for me who I've known for a little while, but has recently become someone I considered to be a mentor, and it was through a personal struggle that she guiding me to manage my own expectations, which is so funny, because I teach about managing stress I, teach about managing like how busy schedules are overwhelmed, but I wasn't really practicing myself for a moment in this in the late so. The So. My practice allays is we'll let me define meditation for you. Really quick is according to me according to sit work as a meditation as a way for me to show up for myself to say hey I. See you. I recognize that you're thinking feeling person who deserves to be heard who deserves to be seen who deserves might time, and it's also a way for me to connect with truth, which is the truth of the moment what is happening energetically for me physically for me and then also what's happening in my environment, so it's really sitting in quiet contemplation for. For the purpose of self reflection, and then also connection, which truth and you know being there, it's a it's an act of self love being there for myself so. When I sit in meditation, it is not to cure anything. It's not to fix anything. It's to communicate with myself so that I can find answers on how to act outside of meditation to find. The cure the remedy or even the method to be able to move through stress and what I had been doing recently was sitting in meditation. Connecting with my truth, and then going out in the world and Practicing something that was outside of my truth, which was trying to change instead of trying to change myself. So I was pro. into this like active space and focused on changing the minds of others. Really investing in the impact of changing others instead of investing in what I can do, and that was leading me to a lot of overwhelmed frustration heartbreak. Really this this deep disappointment, so go back to where you. Can Ask right there. Were you You were deeply disappointed in that? People weren't seeing things the way that you wanted to see them or say things or do things or change in this. In his very divided society that we have right now. Is that all of that? It was this sense of urgency. And not being able to. Not being able to. Deal with the incredible that that sense of urgency was creating in me wall seen people not have that same sense of urgency like not doing what I thought they needed to be doing and that was It's really. It's a practice in self. Defeat is a practice in of destruction, because in not in in. Making my expectations, not managing my expectations meaning connecting with the reality of what I can expect. I was setting myself up for so what I learned. With Dr Franconian what she reminded me of that I already knew was. Not to give up hope not to be pessimistic, not to be cynical, but to understand where my energy should be invested and what I can expect from that investment,
New York town protects economy after coal-plant closure
"The Huntley Coal Plant, in Tunnel Wanda New York wants the area's biggest polluter, but it was also the town's biggest taxpayer. So when the plant was slated to close, the town was concerned about job losses, not just for company employees, but public sector workers like teachers in paramedics.

Almost Boy, it sure does Dan and it's pretty frustrating to a lot of people. I mean the corona viruses unchecked in the Golden State, the hospitalization and I see you numbers continue to move in the wrong direction. The positivity rate is approaching 8%. And Governor Gavin Newsom said today it is time to pull back and no longer just on a county by county basis. We are announcing additional statewide actions as it relates to our state home order here in the state of California. We are now effectively rather effective today required all counties to close their indoor act activities there indoor operations in every county, not just the 31 or so now on the state watch list. All bars must close gnome or indoor dining, movie theaters, family entertainment centers or winery tasting rooms and in those counties where the things are worst, covering more than 80% of California's people. There are further shutdowns, houses of worship, Hera nail salons, gyms and fitness centers. Malls. Non essential offices must all closed down again in the Bay Area. That list includes Alameda Contra Acosta Marin. Napa, Santa Clara Solano in Sonoma County. So in other words everywhere in the Bay Area except San Francisco and San Mateo counties, I pressed the Governor Dan about the confusion regarding restaurants in Alameda County over the last few days, and the general level of frustration among so many people about what's open and what isn't what's safe and what isn't. He acknowledged His responsibility is leader of the state. But he said too many people are just not acting with common sense. We all need to wear masks and keep a safe distance went outside reporting live Doug Sovereign, KCBS dog real quick. Also, did he mention anything about schools because classes were supposed to start in about a month. Is he going to step in on that? Or is he going to leave that to local communities? Well again a little bit of confusion there because it's some of both. He was asked a couple of times about the schools and again, as you said. No different districts are handling it differently. Some are shutting down completely doing everything remotely. Others are doing hybrids. He suggested that there's further guidance coming from the state, although he leaves it to local districts to make decisions. He congratulated Los Angeles, for example, on deciding tohave all remote schools. This fall, he said. There's some more guidance coming in the next few days from from the state regarding mask wearing at school's school buses, sports certain safety measures that will have to be taken if schools do want to reopen in person in part, or even more than in part in some district. So while he's still saying it's it's a district by district decision, the state is going to put some new mandates in place, so that's districts that do allow in person education this fall. We're going to have some stricter rules to follow. All right. Thanks very much. KCBS is Doug sovereign. You can follow him on Twitter to today with the latest at sovereign nation. Meanwhile, in

"You so much for being with us on untangled today. We are just thrilled to have you here. Thank you so much wonderful summer day here in Santa Fe. Oh, that's awesome I wanted to start by asking you the question. I love the book. I read it this weekend. Just devoured it and wanted to understand what inspired you to write this particular book I've had the good fortune to be working in the end of life. Life Care Field, and in various other fields, including working with people corporations, working in humanitarian efforts working as a volunteer, the penitentiary system, working with educators, and it just been for fifty years, and I've had the opportunity to hear people who want to serve others who are engaged in service to others whether in education or medicine or law or business hearing them speak about the kinds of challenges. They experience in their work service to others. And it has been an extraordinary experience for me because one thinks that being a good person opening one's life to a world of service whether you're a doctor, a nurse, a lawyer and educator, or even a parent that this is work that is continually easy, but it's not necessarily a so, and so I began to look at the consistent patterns in relation to states that are considered to be virtuous like altruism or empathy or integrity and respect and engagement and discovered that. That there are shadow sides to these important human capacities, and that the shadow sides are often a source of great suffering, not only to those who are serving, but to those who are being served so I wrote the book I wrote the book in part because I also saw that the lever or the means of transforming the shadow side of these virtuous states is compassion, and so the last section of the book. It's you know is about compassion, yeah, and you. You just mentioned the edge states, and you talked about being at the edge can either gives us great potential for growth, or for suffering, depending on how we face our situations, and you also mentioned that like our toughest challenges can be our most valuable source of wisdom. I'm so curious about what is the difference between people who fall apart when they're challenged in these situations and the people who do become wiser, and who are able to grow. How do you think about? About that I don't know what the common feature is. Because what I've seen is that this potential for transformation exists within all of us and I think that's really important for all of us to understand that we all have this capacity to actually shift out of these conditions, and to that caused us so much suffering, and in the process of shifting to actually become stronger as a result of this transformation process. In my experience, it can happen to any kind of person. But that shift also involves as I said before opening up the experience of fundamental compassion, and when I talk about compassion, I'm speaking about this capacity to actually attend to our own experience into the experience of others as well as to have the intention to actually transform suffering and various other qualities, which I described in relation to compassion, but it's like in our day profundis in our deepest most difficult moments. This is where and Rebecca Sola talks about this. There is hope in the darkness. I Look Patricia as someone who has. been through a lot in relation to my own work as a time of kind of it's an experience of building character if you will when we fall over the edge, find ourselves in great difficulties, and we managed to pull ourselves out of the difficulties, and as a result of that, we're actually strengthened, and we have more capacity.

"Welcome to Rebecca sounds. This episode really excites me. Because the guest I have to bring to you shares the same passion that I have. She is so passionate about helping both survivors of trauma and abuse on their Healing Journey. That she exudes with the passion in many areas of what she does. I've got to tell you that. Her work is an outgrowth from recovery recovery of her own childhood. Well incest in addictions and often. We don't like to talk about that but really we need to. Because as many of you know things that happen are often done behind. Closed doors in. We don't WanNa address those things in. That's one of the things that allowed me to start this. This show the radio the TV show the things in domestic violence and trauma. I wanted to ensure that I could help change others in the direction that made their lives better and enrich them and empower them with resources. And that's exactly the things that my guest today also does and is going to bring to you. She has worked in mental health for many many years since the seventies and she has earned her masters in social work from Hunter College in New York later she trained at the Castell Institute and eventually opened her own private practice. I love this. I absolutely love this as a licensed clinical social worker. She combines just a number of different therapies because of the knowledge that she gained an experienced in her own practice she doesn't limit or place limitations on certain modalities that often you see in different practices based on the things that come across out of DSM manuals or other types of things and maybe she'll share a little bit about that with us today but it's all about the client's needs because ultimately they're going to vary and she focuses all on that she believes that while there's many roads that really lead to individuals healing and she works with these individuals on their own as couples and as total family both in recovery from drugs alcohol food co-dependency sex and love addiction as well as people that suffer from post traumatic disorder and well trauma and abuse so not only has she got all of these skills behind her the passion behind her to help change the lives but she's an author of a book called my house of lives and it is a memoir of her own addiction. Recovery in overcoming trialed childhood incest. I want her to share with you today. A little bit about that because there's something special in this journey of her own and in her memoir welcome to the show Lori Golden. Hi Hi. I'm so delighted you're here and that you share the passion with so many people because the things that you do everything from different types of recovery drug and alcohol but codependency and I think co-dependency really carries over to a number of different areas in trauma yet because it just from enabling behaviors to rescuing behaviors and a number of different things. They almost just hand. Yes go hand in hand because they coat cold coincide with all of these things. Yes they really really doing. Oftentimes we only think that codependency is in relationships with other people. But they're also in the codependent relationship with a drug or food or whatever and so we don't really think about this but you have so many years of experience behind you in helping others that you have brought forth your own exposure. You have opened up something that most of us don't share in the journey that we have and that is our own personal experience. We don't share that with many people and you brought out your book my house of lives. Can you tell us a little bit about how you came out? Not only writing your book but presenting this to the world it's been quite a journey Yeah by the way co-dependency for me had been survival because I needed to know what room everyone in my family. My mother was in my father was in. I was tuned in to my external world. Not My internal world. I was in my room in my bedroom. Listening for sounds downstairs so that I could figure out where I needed to be in the house. So it's interesting that you brought up codependency because it really is a core issue. Ms Anyway aside that I I got into narcotics anonymous in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven And I was thirty seven years old and prior to that I would have said I come from a really good family. I grew up in Long Island. I lived in a nice home. I we went skiing every weekend. We went camping. We had a folk. We went boating. Every weekend it was such a nice upbringing in nineteen eighty seven. I reached bottom in using drugs and at that point in my life my main drugs were valium. Okay I was just GonNa ask you your drug of choice. At that point. It was valium throughout the day. And sleeping pills to help me sleep throughout the night trying to that. I had experimented a lot and I had done a lot of different kinds of drugs but the main thing by this point in my evolution is an addict was I was addicted to Bali and I didn't know it. I kept thinking I got it from doctors. doesn't mean. I can't possibly be an addict to me and added to someone who shot intravenously heroin because I grew up in a neighborhood where five of the people in that neighborhood. Were shooting heroin. So I watched the the progression of heroin addiction in these people and I said I'm not anything like that. Well it ends up. I am and I got into narcotics anonymous I moved from New York. I did a geographic and I came out to San Diego and a year later. I hit my bottom. Okay I wanNA point out something that you said just a second ago because someone said to me something out. First thing is oftentimes. People don't realize they have a prescription addiction. Yes they do not want to really go there. Because it's been prescribed. The next thing is someone told me that they were not using drugs like Smoking Hash or something to that effect that that really wasn't a drug Galley. It is depends on it. Depends on how you're using it and so I think oftentimes people perceptual -lize certain types of drugs or a drug addict only when it comes to someone that's injecting and they minimize anything else such as marijuana hash whatever. The case is if. You're only smoking it or minimization when it comes to addiction so I just WanNa throw that in there yes You know it just makes me think about some of the things that I've heard but the point being is we want to bring this to the attention because we want to help others in this and so I go ahead and continue. Laurie but I did want to throw that in there are now. That's an important. Minimization is very big particularly in young adults and in teens. There is a lot of minimizing. Yes yes yes. Yes and there's a lot of overuse of marijuana does a lot of ob use of Hash. There's a lot of overuse. It's the same as anything when you use something regularly. You don't realize that you're ending up coping with all your your shutting yourself off your your shifting one set of feelings for another so best sense okay. Better is something. That is really crucial for us to talk about Laurie. Because I don't think a lot of people really understand when they shift like that in so can you talk about that for a minute because I think this creates further problems? This problem doesn't get resolved. It's shifted now. You have two sets of issues to deal and I will go further to say. I'm also recovering food addicts and I've been in recovery for that thirty years and food did the same exact thing for me shifting my moods into another kind of mood and the reason I'm saying is so if I was lonely I wouldn't be in touch with my loneliness but I would feel uncomfortable and then I would. I just knew I wanted to get rid of what ever it was. That was inside me. I didn't know what it was. I just didn't feel good so feelings to me eight were something that I constantly trying so alter faltering if once I if I'm lonely and I don't know I'm lonely and I go and I smoke weed K. On every time I had that feeling I go and I smoke weed. I never ever bring in my a real sense of careful loneliness because I use the pat to ease the loneliness and this is true for a lot of feelings of frost. The board especially children growing up in dysfunctional families. You've thought I mean. I used food to numb myself sugar. I mean that's where I wanted to go. And that's what I wanted to ask. You is the real culprit with food addiction sugar because of the endorphins. For me it was. Okay I repeat bullet starch. It can go it all kind of metabolize sugar in the body. Anyway I get it I get it now that you say that okay this now I get it I get it. Yeah I just when you said that it just the bells and whistles went off instantaneously when you said starches that okay. That's conversion yet exactly so when you put all of these things really is amazing to think about.
"rebecca" Discussed on Superwomen with Rebecca Minkoff
"It's the worlds kind of flip. You're now the one you were. You were telling retailers survive versus them telling you what you need to do to be able to survive. What else can you I assume the part of reason why you're doing this podcast and we'll talk a little bit about. The podcast is so that you can have this connection with your buyers with your consumers outside of the stores. That right is that what started got. You started in this. Yes so I had done. These talks in our stores where I said I WANNA be. Have you come into my store being my world environment? But I'm not selling you something. I want you to walk away with an incredible woman story and her advice and we were doing them once a month and that was great but I was only reaching a New York. You Know Ninety two people fire code and it's not an experience that I feel like is good enough to put on facebook live or instagram live. I mean no one's tuning in for that type of content at a store level so I thought how do I take this bigger? How do I amplify it? And get this out to the tens of thousands of my customers women who just needs out by boost so decided in the summer of eighteen to launch the podcast and didn't know what I was doing and I had a woman at the at my company. Who said we're not helping you? You need to figure this out and I was like what and that was great advice and I had to figure it out on my own and launch it on my own and that gives you a sense of You know after fifteen years of figuring out one thing to switch into an entirely different media format was like exciting to figure out and it's been soul food for me to tell these women's stories and to be inspired and to know that as a founder when you're having the roughest day you can imagine that there's another woman whose had just as rough of a day and here's what she did to get out of it just want to go back to one small point you brought this to someone at your company and they said Rebecca. We are not going to support you on this. Yeah that happened a lot For a good few years did happen. And it's Kinda takes me back to my days with my mom who is tough love of like if you want this great figure it out or if you want to buy this you need to work to make your money. And so when she said that to me. It didn't shock me. I was just like but we have all these. We have people here who can help me. And she was like now. Everyone's at maximum bandwidth go figure out the so funny. How how do you think about the Roi of doing stuff like this or do you think that way do you? I assume that as a founder as someone who is running constantly. You must have to think about how you're spending every minute. Yes what makes this podcast worth your time? I think I didn't start at looking at it from an Roi. I think in the same way that in the early days of instagram. You said this is another way to reach my customer and to impact her. That was my approach with the podcast. And then you get the reviews and you get the emails and you're like Oh my God. I'm I'm helping change people's lives because they're listening to these women's stories and taking great advice or brings them back from the brink or however it affects them and that's an Roi in itself. I'm not looking at it from a point of view of I. Have you know thirty thousand downloads? A week and thirty thousand purchase funnel. Exactly I'm saying I'M GONNA pump out this contact. I'm GonNa give you the soul food and I hope that it works and I know that I'm reaching the same age in Demo as my consumer because I can see those metrics And so maybe when she wants to support a female founder. She'll be like I want Rebecca minkoff but that's not the driving force and I think if it were it would feel a lot more sales. Let's talk a little about female founders. You've got the female founders collective fascinating idea so your ideas basically if you were going to help. Women reject empowerment the place to invest. Not The fortune five hundred and trying to get more women into the C. Suite but to invest in the twelve million small businesses or businesses. The women have started How far along is this collective? And what are you trying to? How will you know whether it's successful or not? So where year and a half in We have over seven thousand members and the seals on over three million products. Which I'm really excited about. Because as a consumer I turn over my products all day long and informs my purchasing decision you know is a non. Gmo ORGANIC So now you can turn over things. Like Birch box or Lola or cosmetics companies and turnover out woman. I'm in right And I think we just announced the project with UBS that gets It's called project entrepreneur and it gets women founders ready to actually take in capital and then know how to deploy it and I think being that the numbers are alarmingly small of women getting funding less than three percent. You know if you can educate the over two hundred women were going to in this cohort. That's two hundred more women who are primed for investment and then they know how to use those funds when they get so. I think I'll know it's working when I see that Eighty cents become eighty two eighty three eighty four but also as we can track these businesses as we get more sophisticated. I'll be able to say to you you know. These seven thousand companies or ten thousand companies have all grown by axe. Because of you know whatever it is we did to help them and you came into this from the fashion side. And what has been your personal story about how you learned how to navigate the business world so I would say that I over indexing in this because I didn't have that education and I didn't have that know how so I relied for the first seven years on my brother to make all business decisions. You're the CEO. You seem to know this all. Focus on design and at one point. He looked at me and I always hate admitting when he's right but he was a you need to evolve. You can't just be the designer in your ivory tower. You have to learn this. This is a language and a way of being so I was like resentfully started diving in and you know getting myself educated and your decisions are just vastly different when you're educated and your knowledge and what you can affect is different so if I can give a woman what I didn't have or didn't take advantage of the she can excel in her business. You know far earlier than that's my goal because I can tell you when I started my business. I'd one bank account. He said you know. Do you have a business bank account and I was like. I don't even have enough money in this one. Why would I make it to you? Know or what did? Llc what's a tax ID. What what should I be an inker? Llc These are all questions that women who have passions when they start their businesses. They don't know the answers to so if I can help affect just a couple of those micro decisions to get someone on their way. It's a lot less painful in the end. Did you ever have imposter syndrome? Was there ever a point where you're like? I don't know whether you removed out at your brother. Help push you out of the ivory tower four. Start picking up things where you might not have been where you might not have had the comfort level to ask the right even know whether these were the right questions. How did you fight through that? It was a lot of pretending I mean in our board meetings I would be looking upwards under the table what does EBA right like and and I think I was like well. They know that I don't know so they'll just ask the questions to my brother And I didn't like feeling that way. I didn't like knowing what they were talking about. The intricate details of a complicated global brand and so five years ago. I was like I gotta learn this stuff. It's my responsibility to be smart as I can and admit when you're wrong I think raising your hand and me like wait. What does this mean. It's okay and so I started doing that all the time. I was like wait. Stop explain this to me and now now I feel like I have a handle on the language and understanding. I'm not perfect. I'm still learning but I'm the first person would be like. How can you explain this and like Layman's terms to me? Do you do anything with your employees to make sure they feel that same comfort level? I tell them all the time if you don't understand what we're talking about. Raise your hand. If you have an idea. Raise your hand. We Really WanNA foster an environment of entrepreneurialism within our staff. So if you have a job like your trusted to do it and expand and grow it as if it was your company. Would you talk alluded about career advice? I'm sure you have people coming to you all the time saying. How do I want to start exactly what you started? I WanNa be where you're sitting one day. What do you tell people? I tell people a couple of things I think in our age of clicking you know you can your uber downstairs. Your Amazon packages arrive. I made a lot of young people who expect that their career. What I've spent fifteen years building is going to happen with the click of a button And I tell them. Put your head down hard. This is your career. It's the only thing I can think of today Were there are no shortcuts? You know there's definitely going to be people that are going to get you further along but this is a five year tenure passion and it might not end with the Unicorn status but you'll have a great business and you'll have a prosperous company and you have employed hundreds of people so that's something to be proud of two so you can't click your way to success and to really rely on your network. I've only here because of the network of women and men that have helped me and who've seen that I was hungry and ready to work hard and said okay you know. Here's this contact. Or here's this opportunity and then doing something with it. Do you think that when you're telling young people this they are embracing that message? Or do they want the click? I think they are like. Oh Man I want the click but probably it's probably more true that I have to actually work hard. And and how do you build that network? I mean it sounds easy but it sounds like it's just one thing. Go and build a network. What does that even mean so I tell the story and a colleague in my office last me all the time but when I used to go out to me I'd get home and count the business cards. I got each night like it was money I was like I met this person and this person this person and I do that today. Obviously I'm not counting business cards but I think it's like who did I meet what's the opportunity. How do I engage in an authentic connection? So it's not just social climbing What can I give to them? You know how is this a two way street and viewing that As an opportunity and I have a friend. She makes lead sheets. You know she actually writes down all Hurley's and what you know what the potentials are and really ticked off a list of like constantly. Sort of making. Sure you're in touch with these people or giving them something before you ever need anything. And I think that's great advice that I just received von Furstenberg Timberg and it was said that every morning she wakes up and sends one email to just help someone to bring people together. That might not have met. That doesn't help her at all just the way that she wants to start every day. It sounds like you've got something similar going on totally. Yeah I mean I get asked all the time. Do you know Can I have on my guess? Great we can all win. It doesn't have to be There's enough for everybody speaking of the Pie. What is your. What's the long term goal here? What is how big of the Pie? Do you want to get? Is this kind of thing where you look around offices and you're like every single woman should be wearing me. Every college graduate needs to get dressed in my clothing. Wh How do you think about the future of your brand? I think of it as all aspects of a woman's lifestyle I know from talking to my consumer. We're really on milestone moments brand. So were there for the girl that just got her as she goes out and buys my bag. She's going to quit her job. She walks in Rebecca. You know she's going on her I I don't know day. She puts on her leather jacket. So these are all these visceral moments that every single time. I meet my customer. I get a story I remember the first time I had my bag. X. Happened and so wherever I can touch you for that whether it's your first home or your you know your skin or your makeup like categories again..

I don't have the energy to have have tension in my life. I don't have the energy to light of people i don't. It's just like it's much easier to live that way and <hes> and i work really hard to feel like a good good person at the end of the day. You mentioned looking for advice all the time.
